    as a gay man i am outraged. as an anti capitalist i am also outraged

    Half of Americans support a law banning job discrimination against gays and lesbians, according to a new HuffPost/YouGov poll. But the poll found that even more Americans falsely believe it's already illegal nationally to fire somebody for being gay.
    The Employment Nondiscrimination Act, which would ban workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity, will come up for a vote in the Senate on Monday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has announced. The bill currently has the support of every single Senate Democrat and two Republicans.
    According to the new poll, 50 percent of Americans favor a law banning workplace discrimination against gays and lesbians, while 42 percent oppose one.

    Does the article talk about how much of the 42% who oppose the bill do so because they believe that current discrimination legislation is sufficient, or was it written by a typical liberal faggot who implies that they are all homophic?

    look at the word some touchy feely cunt came up with to describe those who are not comfortable around gays or don't believe they should be a special protected group.
    homophobic.
    like people are afraid of them as opposed to not liking them.

    Big government republicans have ruined conservatism.

    A true capitalist hires and fires based on productivity.

    One of my mentors told me in the "Mad Men" days, the SOP was to shame the gay employee into quitting.

    I temped at a place where a gay temp accountant showed up to help with the books and the male office manager kept making AIDS jokes because the guy had a bad complexion.

    My boss was telling me how great it was that they found out the gay person (who answered the phones) was acting in a flambloyant drag show at night.

    they plastered the walls with ads for the shows and gave the number out and had people call and asked crude questions about what goes on the show.

    Apparently, the guy did quit inside of a month of being "outed"....

    my mentor told me this as a successful example of how to lead people, deal with difficult HR situations and maintain office morale. :jj:
