Yeah now now you can goof off all day and call in sick every other day to your minimum wage flunky job and never have to worry about being fired. If they fire your good for nothing lazy ass you can scream discrimination.

Not really. It's just more Democratic grandstanding.

The House will not even consider the bill.

Although John Boehner said that as a courtesy, when the bill comes to the House from the Senate, he will schedule TWO ENTIRE DAYS OF HYSTERICAL LAUGHTER.

Did you ever think such a bill would ever take place in your life time? The tide is changing, and someday this whole process will have seemed ridiculous. So sit back and ridicule everything that has happened, as if some 'tea bagger' would have made it better.

so unless job applications require you disclose your sexual preference on it, how are employers to know you're a flamer ? Once they do this all applicants just check 'bi' and this 'special' job status disappears into the past as all employees have the same status so there's no such thing as singling out.

The problem is that only about 1/3 of the Republicans will be laughing, and none to the Democrats.

The Democrats want to vote on this measure. And so do 1/3 of the Republicans. Another 1/3 of the Republicans just want to be invisible on this issue.

It's only your good good buddies Boehner, Ryan, Cantor, etc. who will be laughing. And no one who has aspirations to national office will want to be caught.
