Senate Votes To Outlaw LGBT Discrimination At Work, Passes ENDA! Barack Obama Chimes In, Too!

us senate passes ends to outlaw lgbt discrimination work place barack obama approves requires house vote

What a refreshing first step in the right direction!

Today the U.S. Senate passed the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, a law which outlaw LGBT discrimination against individuals in the workplace!

This has the makings of a landmark civil rights moment and it could potentially changes the lives of millions for the better, but it's still far too early to celebrate this as a victory.

ENDA passing in the Senate is a HUGE deal, in order for it to become federal law the bill must also be passed by in the House of Representatives.

Republican House Speaker John Boehner has already said he opposes the law and it's very possible he may not even allow a vote.

Yes, this is the same John Boehner who recently orchestrated the catastrophic government shutdown.

President Barack Obama cast support for the bill today on Twitter.

He said:

Republicans Republican't always have it their way! Especially if the Supreme Court has already ruled otherwise!

House leaders from the Republican party announced in a court filing today that it will not continue to try defending statutes that are similar to those in the recently struck down DOMA, which ban federal recognition of same-sex marriages.

Here's an excerpt of what they wrote:

Michelle Obama Is The First Lady Of THROWING SHADE! Watch Here!

While there were many moments of hope and inspiration from President Barack Obama's second inauguration yesterday in Washington, D.C. that will surely be remembered for years and years to come, we think everyone can agree that THIS trumps every other…HANDS DOWN!

Yes, supreme talent like Beyonce, Kelly Clarkson, Jamie Foxx, and Jennifer Hudson were on hand to provide simply stunning musical accompaniment for the event, our beloved POTUS delivered a truly powerful speech that laid out his political plans for the next four years, and Paul Ryan and Bill Clinton were responsible for some of the most HIGHlarious photo-bombs of all time…

But none of this holds a candle to our gurl Michelle Obama - and apparently, her supreme ability to throw subtle-yet-fierce BITCHFACE when warranted!

Now please sit down, get comfortable, and re-live all of the glory of FLOTUS clearly not taking too kindly to Speaker of the House's John Boehner during the post-inauguration luncheon (above)!

Sorry, McKayla Maroney!

You had a good run, but now it's OBVIOUSLY time to abscond the throne and let its rightful ruler begin her REIGN of FEROCITY! HA!

Jillian Michaels Wants Congress To Support Healthier Food

Filed under: PolitikFoodJillian Michaels

Jillian Michaels letters to congress

In letters written to House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Jillian Michaels is urging Congress to cut subsidies for "big loser" foods.

The celebrity fitness expert believes that "cutting subsidies for unhealthy foods would trim the nation's budget — and American's waistlines", explaining in her letters:

“Some of our government’s current policies and programs actually promote obesity and other diseases by supporting the production and consumption of the very foods that contribute to…health problems.”

As an alternative, she supports a 5-step program laid out by the Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine, which suggests the government ends direct agribusiness payments, privatize crop insurance, force factory farms to clean up their own waste, reform food stamps and reform commodity food purchases.

If this plan will save us money AND save us a few pounds, what are we waiting for?
