Imagine how much happier Wraith's life would be had his wife stuck around and if he had legal permission to visit his children.

Anti-discrimination laws are anti-thought laws.

While it is true that it is morally wrong to discriminate on the basis of race, religion, sexual orientation, etc. it should not be illegal.

If you own property-YOU own it. Not your neighbors, not the government. YOU. Therefore, YOU have the right to decide whether or not you will rent or sell your property and, if so, how much you will charge.

Otherwise, you are just a caretaker and the government has a right to punish you for your thoughts and opinions.

WE DON'T NEED ANY MORE STUPID LAWS!!!

It is ALREADY against the law to discriminate!!!!

It's amazing that for 250 years this country got along just fine!!!

And in the last 50 years these "law makers" have written more laws than in the history of the world!!!

Let's pass a law that ANY bill must be condensed to no more than 2 pages or it can't be considered!!!!!!

January 1st. 2010 was a big milestone in this scary look into the future with the introduction of 40,627 new laws that went into effect throughout the nation and its territories. That is some 800 on average per state in the union, covering as widely diverse topics as texting while driving to mold removal in homes and criminal laws against people who scam other people

END THE MADNESS AND THROW THESE BUMS OUT!!!!

How is that "lightning" speed for chemical storage tank law going?

How many minorities/gays work down at Barry, Kessler and Crutchfield?

If your legislatures spend 5 seconds on such garbage, never mind! LOL

How many laws can we create, how many groups can we make special? Employers know that they not only cannot discriminate, they MUST hire people from the special groups regardless of their abilities or background or face punitive actions from politicians like Kessler who panders to demogrpahics. Self serving politicos have created special classes of people who DO face prejudice on hiring, promotions and appointments to public office; white males. Every day. In the American demographic white males are still a huge majority but that is not reflected in any "law" that requires them to be hired. White males are household heads, by far, in America, but their families face loss of income on hiring/promotion. The targeted group in America is not gays or races or illegals, it is the guy who got a degree or skills, found a job, and is raising a family, there is no one looking out for them. 50 people apply for a job, one is from Kessler's special group, who gets the job? We know the a

Gays are only 3% of the population according to a recent UCLA study.

While all the fuss for a non-problem. Plenty of places don't discriminate so BFD.
