Only a complete idiot would think that no one ever gets fired for being gay, given that there are gay people who are MURDERED just for being gay.

And PE, those anti-discrimination laws are at the federal level. States can merely make them even more stringent, such as the states that include gender identity and sexual orientation in their list of protected classes.

Quite literally, no. IT IS NOT. He said you can be fired for any reason at all. But you can't. you can't fire someone for discriminatory reasons as outlined by federal and state governments.

That's what I said.

"an at will( meaning non-union) employee can be fired for any reason or no reason at all as long as it is not a discriminatory reason."

The argument comes down to whether sexual orientation is a protected class.

In some states it is and therefore you cannot be fired just because you are gay.

In other states sexual orientation is not a protected class and the boss can fire youjust for being gay.

And about that analogy; if what you say is true, then companies would only hire white folk because black folk and asian folk bring suits all the time about how they were passed over for promotion or whatever because of their skin color. Most are without merit and don't get very far, and I would expect the same of your predicted inudation by gays.
Exactly my point. Do we want more of those frivolous lawsuits? Next thing you know, illegal immigrants are gonna start suing companies that don't hire them because of their ethnicity.

I said any OR no reason at all.

Ok, so I'm not gonna fire you because you're a black, gay, Jewish and transgender lesbian in a polyandrous relationship with an Eskimo midget and his donkey....

I'm just gonna fire you without a reason because I can...

You would have no recourse.

Surely you must at least hate Hitler more than me? And Vlad the Impaler? Pilate? You are a beautiful ray of sunshine on a cloudy afternoon and flowers and fish alike gaze up at your magnificent countenance.

I just browsed a top 100 guitarists of all time listing that was created out of a reader poll on Guitar World.com .

Jimi Hendrix was not number 1. Ok. I can live with that. But then I saw who defeated him. No disrespect, but even as a big Queen fan, would YOU consider Brian May better guitarist than Jimi Hendrix?

Tonka, that is a negative on Brian May. I didn't even know his name until just now.
But yeah, Jimi Hendrix was quite the trailblazer in Rock and Roll. And one who exerts a tremedous influence on budding guitarists to this day. He is another one of those dopers who have achieved immortality through in their art and creativity.

Jimi Hendrix died at what, 27? Brian May has been making amazing music for over 40 years. Maybe it's more that Brian May is known by so many more people -- especially young people -- because Jimi died so long ago?

I wouldn't say Brian or Jimi is better than the other. they both have very different playing styles. Brian May is AMAZING. But I also love JH and have most of his work -- including stuff that his father released long after Jimi died.

Ugh, Eric Clapton isn't that good, in my book, and most of my guitarist friends would agree. I find his playing style grating, simplistic, and repetitive.

Then again, Foo Fighters are CRAZY repetitive in almost all of their songs, and I love them.

Just got home. Went to watch Nick's 11yo play baseball. Good 11yos. Then we left to watch Nick's 6yo play. HA! Totally different sport. One is baseball. The other is a bunch of boys playing in the dirt, having to be told a million times "watch the game," "look at the batter," EVERYBODY ON THE BENCH PUT THE BATS DOWN, etc. It was comical. When a ball is hit, several kids will run for the ball and fight for it, climb over each other, etc. They rarely throw the ball to make the out -- they run to where the batter is.

But when Nick's kid hit a double (he's a very good ball player, but he plays a lot with his dad and brother), one of the other adorable little byos on the other team high fived him as he stood on 2nd base.

It was a HOOT. And I got to hold a 10-day-old baby!!! He looked like William Shatner but I didn't tell the mom that.

Jimmy Page is pretty amazing. I've heard countless covers of "Rock 'n' Roll," including Heart's, and while they usually are very good, you can hear the lead guitarist take shortcuts in the lead guitar line b/c they cant' do what he did.

I imagine Jimmy, Jimi, Brian, and Eric would think this is just a silly debate and that you can't compare one artist to another objectively.

Again, no disrespect to Brian may, but you think more people know who Brian May is than Jimi Hendrix? Especially young people??!!??That is way crazier to me than someone thinking he was a better guitarist(that's just matter of taste). How do young people know Brian May more than Hendrix? I would think more young people would have no idea who he is since he's best known as the guitarist for Queen, who is about as relevant to the 'kids' as Hendrix is. ie:Music their parents listened to.
