Let's hope, but I'm sure the GOPasaurs in the House will never vote for it.

There's a lot on the plate this year with immigration and benefits for military spouses. Plus the advances of marriage in the states.

I think we should help Obama prioritize what can actually get done this year, and I don't think ENDA is it. And that's a shame because it's probably the most obvious need and will produce the least backlash.

Unfortunately, the religious right will find pinko communist fascist un-American plots behind greeting them "hello" these days.

I believe you are correct. However, I think it would be wise to force their hand... make them put their no vote on record for everyone to see.

That would work in the Senate, but we have no way of forcing a vote in the House. Boner gets to decide what bills are brought up for a vote.

Once you have a taste of truthful reporting you never go back to mainstream contrived corporate media.

These hosts bash Republicans and Democrats equally because they know both sides are illuminati bought puppets out to screw us.

Give alternative news sources a chance before you knock them. Download these shows to your MP3 players and listen on your way to work or whatever. All you need from mainstream media is breaking news and traffic/weather. You can listen to all these shows on your smart phone as well.

Exposes US Gov Corruption and Global Wide Illuminati Plots

(Skip around, you'll learn something useful)

Exposes Wallstreet and absolutely teaches you how to protect your money from the crooked banksters

Exposes Secret/Ancient Knowledge Suppressed In Modern History Books and suppressed medical cures/prevention for diseases like cancer, etc. This guy is a medical doctor.

Often Exposes NASA Disinformation and Possible Offworld Intelligence -Search "Coast to Coast 2012 Shows" on Youtube and listen or use downloader -This is one way /Or get a CC Witness radio and record AM from your local affiliate. There is CIA disinfo injected from some of the guests but you learn how to identify it after a while by researching the guests' backgrounds. The hosts are simply great.

Connects Bible Predictions/Prophecy to Modern Day Events -How Illuminati uses bible prophecy to plan false flag disasters eg. earthquakes, etc. There could also be some CIA brainwashing here as well from some of the guest lecturers but they give a heads up of what to look out for/predict down the road. The host does a good job of teaching about the bible and does not fear political correctness.

http://www.thegospel.com/clients/the-prophecy...

These radio hosts should do a show together or at least make guest appearences on each others shows. They all value truth and liberty in their own way.

Here's my take on it. Don't be afraid to speak out as we are all on some type of list by now:

You have to understand that free speech on the net is about to be clamped down on in America.-mainland China/Syria style.

How about concentrating on fixing the economy and getting people back to work? Protecting against job bias all well and good but it is a waist of time if there are no jobs.

And what good are jobs if they can refuse to hire you or just fire you because you're gay?

So you don't mind unemployed people as long as they're fired just for being gay.

Economic growth and jobs are the last things the Republicans want. Their puppeteers still stand to gain more by taking a larger share of a stagnant economy (and a more certain outcome) than by taking the kinds of risks that create growth and spread wealth around.

And the party powerful still think they can take over by tanking the economy and blaming the party of the incumbent President. People are finally waking up to who got all the new wealth over the last three decades and why.

Of course who pays for them. This President really has been a disaster and to think he got reelected means one of three things.

1. America is more stupid than we understand
2. Voter fraud by those above the President
3. A combination of the two

Either way we're screwed for many years to come and in a couple of years the same subversive decadent dogs that polarized our nation to vote for a black man that isn't even black will do the same for a woman.

America is losing, bigtime!

A law will not stop anybody who does not want to hire a person who is gay from not hiring a gay person. It only prevents them from saying they will not hire a gay person. There are gay people that will not hire straight people and there are gay people who will not hire gay people of the opposite sex. How does an employer know a person is gay? I have hired people for my company and I know that question was not on our applications. By law you cannot ask marital status, how many children, race and a lot of other personal questions.
Personally I would not want to work for a company that does not want to hire gays so why would a gay person? If you do not like a companies policies do not work for or do business with them.
From the political perspective this is just another issue to distract from the issues that our politicians on both sides supposed to be working on.

Bingo! This is not a Democrat or Republican thing it is both. The economy, defict and budget are the issues that should take center stage yet both Parties are distracting us with gay marrage, abortion, gun control and a thousand other things that for the most part the government at least politicians should not even be involved in.

The answer is #1. We elected Dubya twice and now this fool. We need to stop reelecting the same people who do a bad job over and over.

What's the big distraction if it's not that big of a deal anyways? Passing the bill would take 15 minutes to vote in the House and the Senate.

There, now it's done and they can work on all those great jobs bills......

Obviously not everyone agrees the President is doing a bad job, which is why we voted to reelect him.
