What are methods you all use for vetting info?

When debating, I usually use arguments from morallity instead of from effect.

In support of the "pro-discrimination" law

Inexplicaby, Judge Andrew Napolitano came out against the Arizona law that would "permit" business owners to discriminate against homosexuals.  I haven't read the law but from what I understand, the law allows businesses to discriminate against homosexuals.  The problem with the law is that it does not go far enough.  While this shouldn't be news to libertarians, individuals should have the right to discriminate against anyone for any reason.  Conservatives threw in the towel a long time ago when they stopped objecting to "civil rights" laws based on race.  They didn't want to appear racist.  As Republicans, they also tried to pivot the issue by pointing out that Democrats opposed Civil Rights more than Republicans.
