Senate Committee Gives Another Win To LGBT Rights!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikLGBT

Wow. It really DOES get better!

Wednesday marked another historic day in the fight for equality in America, this time in the workplace.

Currently, in 33 states you can be fired, denied a promotion or be openly harassed at your job just for being gay! But not for long!

The Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions just passed the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (better known as ENDA) a bill that will ban workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

The bill was voted through 15 to 7 with all democrats supporting it as well as three republicans! Way to go guys!

The 7 Senators who voted no for equality in the workplace: Lamar Alexander (Tenn.), Mike Enzi (Wyo.), Richard Burr (N.C.), Johnny Isakson (Ga.), Rand Paul (Ky.), Pat Roberts (Kansas) and Tim Scott (S.C.).

We're lucky enough to live in America where EVERYONE has a right to their opinion and the freedom of speech to express it, so if you see your Senator listed above, pick up the phone or log-on to their web site and tell them they voted on the WRONG side of history today!

Lucky for history though, they lost!

Love is love! It's a VERY happy day!

Texas Passes House Bill 2 To Place Strict Regulations On Abortions

texas passes bill to put strict regulations on abortions

The state of Texas has just put the final approval on House Bill 2, which will ban abortions at 20 weeks and put some of the strictest regulations on abortion clinics and facilities in the entire country.

The House voted 98-49 to pass the Bill by a huge margin, and it must be approved once more at a later date to move on to the Senate.

Supporters of the Bill argue that it will help protect women and their unborn children while those opposed to it say it will make it nearly impossible for women to get treatment and force them to seek "black market" alternatives.

john mccain introduces cable tv busting bill

John McCain is complaining about the TV again- too many darn channels!

Only this time the Arizona Senator is complaining on the Senate floor! He's introducing a bill called the TV Consumer Freedom Act of 2013.

The bill would force cable providers to sell packages of "à la carte" channels- in other words, custom packages designed by the consumer! He says:

Senate Rejects Gun Bill: Hollywood Stars Furiously Respond

Filed under: PolitikTwitter

obama biden nra gun bill

Seriously… does 90% really mean nothing to them??

After the overwhelming masses supported a modest gun bill to ensure stricter background checks for the purchase of firearms, the Senate cowered and DENIED the bill.

Blasted for their fear of the NRA, every single one of those Senators who voted 'no' has been called out for their "cowardice" by Gabby Giffords and countless others.

When President Obama said it was a shameful day in Washington, he wasn't kidding!

Everyone — well, 90% of everyone in America — is FURIOUS right now.

Check out how the stars are responding …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
