Now that gay people are gaining more acceptance in society, he should start saying something about age discrimination as well. Especially in the workplace.

And it is time someone in power also brought up discrimination based on physical appearance and size.

There is still a long way to go before everyone is treated according to their own merits.

It will never happen. Human nature says no way.
Tall men make more money than short men.
Good looking women make more than ugly women.
Good looking women get jobs they don't qualify for.
If you're obese, put down the doughnut and the candy bar.
Stop getting the super size for only $0.59 more.

True story. I don't eat at McDonald's very often. One time I stopped there because I was hungry and it was right there. I got behind a woman that had to weigh 300 pounds. She ordered 2 whoppers, large fries, 2 apple pies and a diet coke. I did laugh out loud. What's with the diet coke? IOW, stop being your own worst enemy.

You will fall into the last category when someone pours sulfuric acid on your trailer trash face as you justly deserve.

What about equal pay for women ? Female White House staffers make about 49% less than their male counterparts in the White House. They should UNIONIZE ! Raise the George Meany-Albert Shanker Flag" !
