SB 141

June 18, 2007

I’ve had a very stimulating discussion with Dave Burris over at DelawareLiberal on the necessity of this bill. I want to take a moment that I enjoy discussing our different viewpoints with Dave. He always seems to have good points in favor of his views, which helps me think more deeply about the issue and we rarely resort to childish namecalling unless it’s really  funny.

At any rate, it seems that this bill, which adds sexual orientation to the current protections against discrimination in the workplace,  may finally see floor time. This is an interesting story. It seems in order to make sure this bill never saw the light of day, out favorite enemy of democracy Thurman Adams assigned this bill to the Senate Insurance and Elections Committee.

I’m sorry, where? Holy shit, we know this man resorts to slimy tactics to make sure any worthy legislation dies with hardly a whimper, but couldn’t he at least do us the courtesy of trying to hide it? Can the Delaware public really be expected to look the other way while Adams thumbs his cauliflower nose at us? Well, yes, that’s been proven time and again…. where was I?

Ah, equal workplace protection. You can read many of my quite brilliant points over at DL, but the conversation was ended abruptly by the juicier Oberle almost-scandal (which I would have linked if it hadn’t disappeared from the NJ… interesting). The main point, I feel is that if there is a workplace protection bill, it needs to cover all minorities. Everyone in the country deserves equal protection in the eyes of the law. It’s one of the strongest ideals upon which this country was founded.

Dave may not see the necessity of that, but I do. And it looks like a lot of legislators do as well.

    You’re both a couple of commie fag junkies…..aka : bloggers.

    I believe it was the late great Orval Faubus who once so eloquently said : “One of them damn dirty hippies steps in front of mah car, it’s gonna be the last car he ever steps in front off !”

    “You’re both a couple of commie fag junkies”

    Considering I just read that guys name as “Orval Fabulous”, you may be partially correct, Tyler =P
