I posted this earlier today. Let's hope the governor signs it soon.

How is it that GENDA failed in committee but this passed so overwhelmingly? Even Ruben Diaz voted yes for this bill. Was GENDA sacrificed for this or was this some sort of consolation prize for Sen. Thomas Duane and Assembly Member Daniel O’Donnell?

We'll never know for sure, of course. In the meantime unemployed gender variant gay, lesbian, straight and bisexual people will still be legally discriminated against in New York State, losing jobs or never getting them (I've been unemployed now for 18 months), risking humiliation or even assault for the simple act of going to the bathroom and living on the margins - or quickly sliding towards them - of a society that includes too many GLB people who are more interested in getting theirs than fulfilling the promise made 8 years ago to "come back" for transgender people's civil rights protections.

It is not only the GLTB being hurt by a lack of jobs. There are a lot of straight people who are unable to find work. If you are an older worker like me, lots of luck finding a job in the county where I live where the unemployment rate is at about 13%. Fortunately, I have the means by which to take early retirement soon and collect social security.

Lucky you, swee' pea, I'm about to lose my unemployment benefits and will most likely have to go on welfare. Unless some min wage employer overlooks the facts of my past (including my engineering degree) and hires me anyway - at which point I'll still lose my house and have to find a cheap - iow a bad neighborhood - apartment for me and my disabled spouse.

But hey, it's not just me feeling a pinch so I feel SOOOO much better![/sarcasm]

USA hells angels seem to have a very large percent of members that collect child porn ,harm, rape ,molest and murder women and children not counting other crimes.

I guess when you leave a rotten fruit in the USA hells angels long enough they contaminate the rest of the fruits in the USA hells angels and they probably recruit more rotten fruits until the whole Basket needs to be dumped out .

I think the hells angels would be best if they ripped off their own 1% patch cleaned up their own basket of fruits and left the Biking to the real 1% clubs in your area.
