I'd say this bill will set the queers up pretty good.

This bill is giving queers a ticket for a nice long free ride on easy street. An employer will be terrified to fire or even reprimand a homosexual for doing anything wrong in fear of a discrimination lawsuit.

The same things were said about non-whites and women. There were some lawsuits. Not as many as your type said there would be.

Expect the same.

Realistically, though, the House will never pass it. It won't even get a floor reading.

John Boehner said that when the bill is presented, he will schedule two entire days for hysterical laughter.

The Roman Catholic Church calls their annual Homophobic Bigot Pride parade the "St. Patrick's Day Parade".

Oh, PIERRE, you never fail to disappoint us in your endless stream of lies, do you..oops, I mean JAVIER.

Uh, next time, little cowardly liar, why not use a DUTCH name instead of Spanish when pretending to be in the Netherlands? Why not call yourself JAN or HANS or some other less obvious lying names?

I'm still waiting for your apology, or at least admittance,of your lies about what I had said and your making up false quotes you claimed I had stated.

If this were print I could sue you for libel for your false statements about me.

I would guestimate that corporations with government contracts constitute around 50% of the American economy. So that ain't nothin'!

Actually, you can see that the Republican leadership is trying to bury this as deeply as they can. Sure, they'll have their private fundraisers where they bring it up directly.[You know: the kind of groupie conclave where Mitt made his 47% remark.] But that is preaching to the already converted. At best, it will encourage the Republican Party's most reliable voters to vote.

There will also be any number of dog whistles at more public forums. Neither will those change anyone's mind. They will merely reassure those who already agree and go over the heads of people who disagree.

But the Democrats are about to turn the anti-gay sentiments of the Republican Party against them. The youth, in particular, are particularly offended by the bigotry. And many will establish Democratic voting habits as a result. And that has the Republican leadership very worried.

Hence, the House will sideline the bill as quickly and quietly as possible. And when President Obama takes unilateral action, the party leadership will show only feeble opposition.

And the Democrats will STILL have an issue that appeals to independents and youth, and which activates their most reliable voters.
