Save the whales

WEDNESDAY 4-23-08…Most states have laws that protect people from discrimination in employment, housing and public accommodations on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation and ancestry. You’d think that oughtta be enough, right? Well, you’d be wrong!

The state of Massachusetts is on the verge of adding height and weight to the anti-discriminatory list (as if Massachusetts didn’t have enough problems created by Liberals already.) Democrat state representative Byron Rushing of Boston is sponsoring the legislation. He points out that San Francisco has a similar anti-discrimination law….so if its good enough for the city by the bay, it should be good enough for Massachusetts.

Brian Gilmore is the executive vice president of the Associated Industries of Massachusetts and says the bill is just another example of people going too far with regulations. In my opinion, is just another perfect example of liberalism wanting to control everybody’s lives.

I can see it all now if it passes in that state. Can you imagine a guy about five feet tall wanting to fulfill a lifelong dream of becoming a police officer. He’s 5’2″ and weights 139 pounds soaking wet. He fills out an application to become a cop only to be told he’s physically under par for such a job. He files a lawsuit claiming discrimination because of his height and weight. He wins! It’s like hitting the lottery, so other shorties decide to take a crack at it.

Or how about the morbidly obese individual who has to use a walker to get around. The person has always wanted to be a waiter or waitress. Fill out application, get turned down. File lawsuit for discrimination.

The bill working its way through that state’s legislature is a litigious individual’s goldmine and big trouble for that state. But then again, liberalism is big trouble everywhere it surfaces. Just take a look at our state legislature here in California.
