So this is what Obama spends his time working on? I guess there aren't any important issues that need taking care of.

Mia Macy of Portland, Oregon, watched Obama's announcement in tears as an invited guest in the East Room. The military veteran and former Phoenix police detective applied to be a ballistics expert with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms as a male but was rejected after she changed her name and began identifying as a woman. She filed a successful complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and settled a discrimination lawsuit against the government last year.

"Having a president acknowledge us for the first time in history as citizens instead of second-class citizens is just monumental," Macy said in a telephone interview. She said Obama personally thanked her for her pioneering role in a private meeting before the ceremony.

I know. The Executive Order has no requirement to treat filthy homophobes as second class citizens.

Maybe if Hillary is elected we can get this oversight addressed...?

so how they going to prove gheyness if you are applying for a job and need a little 'bias' help. Or you're called into the bosses office and firing you is threatened. All workers being equal, the teeth in the phony executive order can be pulled and negated by ALL employees in any adverse job problem declaring themselves a member of the GiBLET community. Married folks need to declare they're Bi of course to cover for the married part.

the mantra of 'you must hire me i'm bi' or
'you can't fire me i'm Bi' will be a roar in all HR offices.

Gays and all sexual freaks will now be able to get away with anything at work and not have to worry about being fired. A queer can just goof off all day long, call in sick for weeks at a time, steal, whatever they want to do, and if the company says anything they can just scream discrimination and threaten a law suit.

So since we protect against bias on the basis religious affiliation by the closet case homophobes' reckonings that must mean no muslim can ever be fired for any reason.

That is surely an unacceptable thing.

So we must rescind all employment protections on the basis of religious affiliation.

Then employers will blessedly be free to fire idiot, fundie xstains simply because they're fundies.

Good deal.

Unlike you and your fellow knuckledraggers, Obama can walk and chew gum at the same time.

You need to call in sick on a permanent basis.

Yes. Unfortunately he's not capable of doing anything else besides walking and chewing gum, except maybe golf.
