    I think that it is totally inexcusable for Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida not to have any anti discrimination laws protecting GLB people on the state level. Lawmakers in Lansing, Columbus, Harrisburg, and Tallahassee should be raked over the hot coals due to their inexcusable failure to pass strict laws that forbid discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. Especially Pennsylvania since it is a northeastern, blue democratic state. WTF Harrisburg lawmakersicon_exclaim.gificon_mad.gificon_mad.gificon_mad.gificon_mad.gificon_mad.gif

    The GOP has a large grip on the state legislature. And they're mostly Pennsyltucky Republicans.
