In 29 states, you can get fired just for being gay????

Ask yourself if this statement is true???

“Despite the strides we have made in this country to try to ensure equal opportunities, equal treatment and equal pay for all, “all” doesn’t necessarily include someone who is gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender. We have laws to protect against workplace discrimination—but not on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. In 29 states, you can get fired just for being gay. In 38 states, you can get fired just for being transgender.”

I was told once, “That government is like making sausages. Everyone loves to eat them, but doesn’t want to know what is in them.” This person then went on to say, “It is complicated, running a government, and making laws and regulations that will suit everyone equally, is down right impossible.”

Making complicated things even more complicated, doesn’t solve much. But making things that are complicated less so, does.

It seem that politicians are purposefully making government, and the laws and regulations they make out of whole cloth, more and more difficult to understand, net alone follow? Throw into the mix, the political pundits who don’t understand what government or what the political leaders are trying to do; or is it that these political pundits are just blindly supporting those ideals no matter what, for some kind of advantages unto themselves?

There was this story the other day that stated that people could be fired if you lived in one of these states saying…(a picture was also posted–which I have also posted in this piece), if you were gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender and lived in these states you could be fired! Oh no! Often these states are referred to as “Right to work states.”

This term “Right to work”, is being abused. It seems that political pundits are determined to twist its definition and other terms along with it, in a mental no holds barred wrestling match designed to confuse the average voter. Playing mental gymnastics with words and terms or definitions is the kind of word play the progressive left uses to appear superior to everyone. It is just the kind of tactic used, no difference in explaining that government is like making sausages.

The truth of the matter is, the truth is never really explained or presented with these word game–wrestling matches. These games are easily debunked within the issue when the lies and distortions are pointed out. For instance the following definitions and facts do matter. The right to work states laws are stated as….

“Right to work” laws govern hiring of employees. In a nutshell, “right to work” means that a person has the right to work for a company without being required to either join a union or financially support a union. Basically, if you live in a “right to work” state, joining a union, or paying union dues, can’t be a condition of your employment.

“Employment at will” means that either an employer or employee can end a working relationship at any time, for any reason, with no notice. No matter how hard you work, if you upset your boss, no matter how small the incident, you could be out of a job.

The only exceptions are that employers can’t fire anyone for reasons protected by federal legislation. That means that discriminatory firings (age, sex, religion, race…the usual suspects) are still illegal in “employment at will” states.

So how is it possible to get fired from your job if you are–gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, when employers can’t fire anyone for reasons protected by federal legislation?

I don’t believe this is an issue of equality. I do however believe it is an issue of gaining superiority.

When political pundits add pictures that are for the most part visually dishonest, distracting from the truth, or facts, and the population is over-run with political lies and distortions. The 30 second sound-bite, or an attractive picture, seems normal to most voters that also don’t take any time for themselves to search for the truth, or use common sense to say the least in exposing the political lie. Throw into the mix the successful augment that “If you’re against something, you are also cold, un-caring, cruel, less charitable.” as the new way in building the superior argument, or presentation.

The point of the matter is if it takes lies, distortions, re-arranging definitions of words, untrue acts, or actions, or reactions. in order to manipulate people into excepting something that is inferior, how is that being superior, or even supporting something that is defined as superior? The truth doesn’t need the support of any distortion, or lie, to make it so. The inferior does!

I’m amazed that there aren’t more people that are willing to call these political hacks, or pundits, what they are! “LIARS! LIARS! LIARS!”, and then some?

It isn’t that I have an ax to grind, these issues of being gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender doesn’t affect me personally. But those political hacks or pundits who are trying to bury common sense with BS will effect 100% of everyone. I believe in supporting the truth, regardless of the axes people grind!
