    BREAKING: Obama to sign executive order against anti-LGBT job bias


    "The executive order was one the last remaining initiatives that LGBT advocates had sought from the Obama administration in the aftermath of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” repeal, discontinued defense of the Defense of Marriage Act in court, coming out for marriage equality and having his administration submit a brief in the case against California’s Proposition 8."

    This is obviously false. As RJ Right Wingers here constantly tell us, Obama is anti-gay, hates gays, is a false supporter of gays. He's done absolutely nothing for us.

    Whereas Republicans are our friends. Because they've done for us...

    Well, I'm sure it's something. Because RJ Republicans assure us of it. icon_rolleyes.gif

    "It also wasn’t immediately known whether Obama would sign a new executive order or simply amend Executive Order 11246, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, religion and national origin among federal contractors who do more than $10,000 a year in business with the federal government"


    From reading the updated FAR 52 (federal acquisition regulation), it appears Executive Order 11246 will be amended, not a new EO. There is a ton of data connected to the FAR's, just wouldn't make sense for a new or separate EO, "Subpart 22.8" will probably be the document to watch

    Why didn't obama sign the Executive Order in 2009?

    Why didn't democrats pass ENDA when they had control of congress? ENDA has bipartisan support.

    Why did obama's Justice Dept take legal action to keep DADT in place in 2009 and 2010?

    Why are 22 veterans committing suicide each day and thousands more waiting for medical care (many dying) instead of opening military hospitals to veterans by Executive Order as suggested by veteran Montel Williams?

    Why is obama keeping illegal alien children in pens at the Texas border then illegally transporting them to Arizona where they are dumped at bus stops?

    Why are there insufficient logistics setup to evacuate the US Embassy is Iraq?

    With so many problems, why did obama spend the weekend golfing and attending fundraisers in California?

    ENDA is insufficient; nothing less than adding sexual orientation and gender identity to the 1964 Civil Rights Act will suit me.

    You must be a lovely person to be around on a regular basis. All you do is complain about why something isn't done before or to your satisfaction. Get's old, give it a rest so the rest of us can enjoy another step forward!

    Nice try, but your straw man is going down in flames. I'd like to see even a single sample of what you're alleging. Obama's entirely w/in his rights on this, and it's a good move, unlike his refusal to enforce so many laws already on the books, which isn't on both counts. Cast your aspersions elsewhere - and spare us the low-rent details of your seedy social life.

    No, thanks. He's got a way to go on A LOT of other issues before I do that. There are MANY issues and problems facing us that are MUCH more important than gay rights, and the singular focus of too many in our "community" on only them is as selfish as it is shortsighted.

    Indeed, and therein lies a tale. Your search terms are: ENDA - Al Gore - tiebreak! - Arkansas Senator - feigned illness.

    You do the rest.

    I think ENDA would be sufficient and would serve as a companion, albeit separate, to the Civil Rights Act. The Executive Order is only temporary and can be rescinded, however the intent is to move something towards protections for the LGBT community and is a reflection of the politics, namely Republicans, who would oppose ENDA or the amendment to the Civil Rights Act as a matter of antagonistic opposition.

    NOTE: The term "bipartisan" is an accountant's term where only 1 supporting vote from the opposition party would count as "bipartisan" when clearly it doesn't reflect a majority or sizable minority position from the other party.

    Are You a Leader or a Manager?

    Managers manage processes, and leaders inspire and motivate others to accomplish goals. Ask yourself, which definition applies to you? Are you a leader or a manager? Which would you rather be?

    Please share your news outlet/source icon_question.gif, does not make sense but a recent amendment to 11246, Non-Retaliation for Disclosure of Compensation Information goes like this, it might look like this, but how it fits into the FAR might be something different, I cant imagine the new EO not referencing the old when specifically Title VII is used icon_question.gif

    Amen. But without his delusions of grandeur he has nothing to hid behind.

    Yes Mr Obama also told the gays and bi's of America that he supported gay marriage, just to get the pink vote, and how many fell for that loudable piece of propaganda, and gave Obama their gay/bi vote. Then he gave the rights to gay marriage to the Stats and washed his hands of the dirty issue of gay marriage. After all he got the off center gay left vote, or leftist gay vote if you like. But there are others who put country before self, and seen right though Mr Obama's propaganda of supporting gay marriage/gay rights. He could of done much more if he really wanted to.

    Why don't you ask the Republican "Party of No" those questions? Democrats never had complete "control of Congress" because of procedural rules that let the Republican minority, and even individual Senators in some cases, block legislation and appointments, and underfund his foreign policy efforts.

    And now that Obama has tried some Executive Order end runs around Congressional Republicans, they're howling like wounded dogs, with some calling for his impeachment. Early in his first term Obama tried to work with Republicans, using traditional channels & methods. I agree that was naive, and got little done. The problem, dear Brutus, is in our Republicans, not in our President.

    Just as the left wingers, bitch and whine about conservative homosexuals/bisexuals who go to church, and vote conservative for all the wrong in their lives. The left wringers are still going to shake their heads and remain blind to the damage they have also done/do for voting like a man/party like Obama and the DemocRATS, and those who would like to see Chillery replace him in the White House are in fact no better than those they whinge about.icon_redface.gif

    By pure admission, the GOP "party of NO" to ENDA, they are just evil, don't let anyone, press or otherwise think that this EO action is a "consolation prize", its a huge step forward to full equality, and the evil ones know it, however they choose to "spin" icon_twisted.gif

    "Once the executive order is public, we expect conservative lawmakers to address it," said Carrie Gordon Earll, senior director of public policy at Focus on the Family. "In the meantime, there should be a considerable amount of 'pushback' from the Hill or the president [will end up] advancing ENDA rather than an executive order."

    Sure the conservative party may not be perfect; but the leftist wingers are nuts.
