    realifedad said MEH !!! says the apoligist SoCal and Conservaposse, they'll never get away with doing that to gays. You Dems worry too much !!! VOTE ROMNEY AND END SOCIALISM !!! LOL !!! Isn't their blindness to the direction of their TBag and Christian Fanatic led Repub Party truely amazing, Its 'stupifying'.!!!

    Let's get the facts correct. It already IS legal to fire gays in many locales, and to evict us from rental properties, they ARE doing it to gays right now. What Portman opposes is a Congressional bill to prohibit it.

    Otherwise the firing of gays continues, and could expand as more Republican legislatures and Governors remove gays from lists of protected minorities in existing anti-discrimnation legislation, as has been actually happening all over the US.

    Add "suspicious" to "stupefying," why gay men would support a Party that opposes legislation that would protect them from being arbitrarily fired just for being gay. Makes yah wonder, doesn't it?

    It's what RLD? And Socal is what?

    WASHINGTON, DC — Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH), best known as the “boring” choice atop Mitt Romney’s vice presidential list, told ThinkProgress today that he doesn’t believe it should be illegal to fire someone for being gay because doing so would make businesses less “comfortable.”

    That says it all. SouthBitch and CrazyJerkAZ should just shut the fuck up and stop trying to spin this. The man's views were laid out in the first sentence.
