In an attempt to change the subject from The Hindenburg Project a/k/a Obamacare, President Prevaricator is out promoting the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), even though there are copious laws on the books prohibiting employment discrimination based on race, color, creed, national origin or sexual orientation. This time, it’s all about sexual preferences.
When the Democrats had control of all levers of power in DC during 09-’11 there was never a thought to create yet another law barring discrimination, but of course everything is different now because they need to create a way to “test” the GOP to see if they are on board with the popular leftwing social issues.
Obama chose to make this push on the leftwing Huffington Post, and he started out rational enough, mouthing all the things we agree with, which is there shouldn’t be discrimination in the workplace, but then—he just couldn’t help himself, and he just had to jump the Sloganeering Shark:
…[workplace discrimination] needs to stop, because in the United States of America, who you are and who you love should never be a fireable offense.”
Well, alrightee then!
It seems Boehner is resisting this, saying there are already enough laws to punish discrimination and I’m sure he sees through this sudden feeling of compassion by Democrats that they didn’t have when they controlled Congress. So I think as a Grand Bargain, he says he will agree to bring EDNA to a vote if the Democrats will vote on legislature to decriminalize pedophilia, polygamy, bestiality, etc. as a prerequisite. Because if it truly is about “who you love”, there should be no exceptions.
Then we’ll REALLY see who has their finger on the pulse of social issues in America.
