Good!
And many, many, more to come!
Pressure and humiliation and isolation and derision and laws are all tools to herd unethical idiots into socially acceptable behavior!
Perhaps starvation through lack of employment might skim those hateful self-righteous ignorant garbage genes from the gene-pool?


Right... so the working class guy holding down three jobs, with barely enough time to comb his hair in the morning, should starve and free the world of his "garbage genes."

Go ahead and lecture us some more on morality. You're not too bright, are you buddy? The people who are hurt by these sanctions have nothing to do with the law.

Funny how everyone rails against corporations (righly so) until they do something like this, then all of the sudden they're the good guys. These companies don't give a flying f*ck about this law, they have no moral convictions one way or the other. They've simply spotted an opportunity for good PR and have swooped on it like vultures, and the only one who gets hurt is the little guy.

You people are so predictable, it's pathetic. How dare you claim any pretense to morality?


Your displaced anger need redirection. The morons that called an emergency session to pass a law 75 percent of the state never wanted.

Those companies do care for several reasons.

1. They have employees who are LGBT and some include executives.

2. They get sued by employees for discrimination and title 9 is a federal law.

3. This included schools which get federal money and will loose it by going against federal laws. There is already a legal precedence.


No, my anger is placed just fine. Someone needs to take a position against hysterical imbeciles. This kind of irrationality and faux-righteousness never leads to good things.

The word you should have used is "misplaced", by the way.


Displaced:

cause (something) to move from its proper or usual place.

Displaced anger:

Displaced anger is anger that's directed onto a safe, irrelevant target rather than its actual cause. 

And some of those working people are LGBT and sick of it too. On top of that morons are making uniforceable discrimination laws.


My apologies about the word usage.

Right, but wouldn't it be bitterly ironic if an LGBT person lost a job opportunity with an LGBT-friendly company because that company decided to pull out of the state?

According to basic logic, this "solution" is not actually a solution at all. A real solution would be going after the governor and his cronies directly.

Who voted these guys into office?


Wealthy Republican old-money types. The working poor are generally apathetic towards voting, at least on a local/state level. I thought that was common knowledge. Poor people don't make their own laws, rich people do it for them.


Then the working poor have no right to complain.

Or - - they can get out and protest.

Poor is an excuse. Everyone has the choice to educate themselves and get a career before pumping out kids they can't afford.

Choices make you poor.

For sure.

And I am the working poor.

I did not make smart decisions in my life. It is my fault.

Did you see the reply I wrote to you back on page 16?


I have sympathy for the good people of North Carolina and Mississippi that have had this legislation ramrodded into law as part of a backhanded conservative republican agenda and for the negative impressions these actions have cast upon your states as a whole. On the other hand, who is responsible for these people being in office and in a position to cause this backlash in the first place?

I am sorry that many feel these regressive and discriminatory policies apply to your state in its entirety and reflect poorly. I have nothing against you personally and the people in these states that find these laws as abhorrent as I do.


We can't vote in their elections and I am sorry if this puts residents at a disadvantage in an already disadvantaged place but when the elected officials create this legislation that hurts their own citizens with the backlash and negative public opinion not to mention the transgender youth harmed by these bills, then it is up to those same legislators to quickly admit their mistake, repeal the law and maybe attempt to repair their tarnished image.

If those poor residents can't get jobs or are harmed by this corporate responsibility to equality, then they should blame their own house, senate and governor loudly and vocally.

Funny when they said LGBT put them in an disadvantage position but they are the ones who put he other people in an disadvantage position. The people in power are the ones with the Christian faith.

This rationale is remarkably similar to what's employed by the conservative types you detest, who are out passing laws like this.

Blame the poor entirely for their woes? Very un-liberal of you. Inter-generational upward mobility is dead in this country and has been for decades.

But I bet it'd be different if we weren't talking about a bunch of dumb hicks, am I right? If it was some inner city blacks up north, it wouldn't be their fault at all. Oh no.

Please, you guys are slipping hard. I'm disappointed.

You have Stockholm syndrome, plain and simple. Most of the elites in this country did almost nothing (nothing admirable, anyway) to earn their position.

It's funny, I despise modern liberalism, and yet I'm far more Marxist-inclined than any of you. The conservatives who call you guys Marxists and socialists are way, way off the mark it seems.

No its not. And who said I was Liberal?

A true Conservative is not a Bible Thumping Nut job. Those trying to make America a Theocracy are a breed of their own.

Blame the poor? NO. Blame people who just "fall through life" without making choices. You live with the consequences you create.

I know - - because I am one of those people. It is my fault.

It really is. You are talking just like they do, believe me. And I assumed you are a liberal, which was perhaps wrong, but I think that's what most people would classify you as going by your posts.

And it doesn't really matter what a "true" conservative is, because conservatism in the U.S. has been totally hijacked by Bible-thumping nutjobs.

Perhaps socially progressive is a better term than liberal but I guess that'll get slung around as a pejorative term as well?

"Progressive" is definitely already a pejorative in that crowd. Best thing to do is claim no affiliation or label whatsoever, and simply say you're speaking according to what virtue and good-character dictates.

Like anyone can honestly say that, though.....

Well the thing is these companies can go 25-45 minutes down the road to SC. Most are in Charlotte.

They are going after the governor as well. This is like when a governor passes taxes or regulations that force businesses out.

I wouldn't call myself a liberal either. Probably socially but when we start talking about spending not at all.

For sure.

We need a new term for accepting people for who they are, who they were born to be - - - and allow them the dignity to openly be that person. (disclaimer: well, you know, because someone will try to use it: not a predator that causes harm to another).

The "Catch All Bucket" Liberal pejorative term is getting really old and warn out.

All these labels are just figments of our collective imagination. There are only varying degrees on a scale between clued-in-and-powerful-but-totally-immoral-scumbags, and ignorant-and-hopelessly-naive-disenfranchised-lemmings-who-get-herded-off-cliffs-by-scumbags. Most people fall somewhere in between, swinging to one side of the scale or the other.
