    I saw Rand Paul on TV last night. My reading of what he said was that there should not be any LGBT workplace protections because:
    1) employers will likely violate them
    2) employees will then sue
    3) and we can't have that!!

    In other words, the best way to avoid lawsuits is to eliminate the laws so employers don't get into trouble for violating them.

    And for good measure…. he's not getting out of the presidential race, all the more so just because everyone is pressuring him to do so.

    Stick around, Rand. You're so good at helping to scramble that GOP egg.

    Frankly if Rand Paul believes Gays and Lesbians should be fired in the workplace just because they are Gay or Lesbian, then Rand Paul should be fired for that RIDICULOUS Hair style of his…..I mean fair is fair, right?

    HERO update: Bob McNair, the owner of the NFL's Houston Texans, donates $10,000 to anti-HERO campaign.

    Craig Malisow, Houston Press: Texans Owner Bob McNair Stands By Anti-HERO Bigots

    But Jared Woodfill, anti-HERO crusader and spokesman for something called Campaign for Houston, told the Houston Chronicle that [Mayor Annise] Parker was full of it: "The HERO supporters have tried to scare people into believing that we would lose the Super Bowl. Obviously, if there were any truth behind that, Bob McNair wouldn't be donating to the folks that are opposed to the ordinance."

    No, Jared. McNair doesn't care because he knows the Texans have no chance to compete for this season's nor the 2017 Super Bowl because, instead of investing in developing a winning team, he'd rather be by far the most profligate contributor to GOP politicians of all NFL owners.

    It's unsettling to think how many people unknowingly hand out large sums of money at a Texans game that will end up in the pockets of people who don't believe in their equality, and all they get in return is to watch a really crappy team.
