And more on the aftermath of the Parkland massacre...

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/assault-rifle-ban-bill-florida-lawmakers-vote-down-motion-to-take-up-bill-after-parkside-florida-shooting/

Yesterday (February 20), less than one week after the school shooting in Parkside, Florida that left fourteen students and three teachers dead, a member of the state House proposed a motion to bring to the floor a bill to ban assault rifles and large capacity magazines.

The bill had been forwarded to various committees, but they had not scheduled hearings and would not meet again before the session ended.

Numerous survivors of the massacre were in attendance as Democratic state Rep. Kionne McGhee moved that the House bring the bill to the floor for debate, bypassing the committees.

The motion failed by a vote of 36-71 (note: a two-thirds majority was required), rendering it essentially dead.

No Republican voted for the motion, and no Democrat voted against; however five members of each party did not vote.

Again: students who had survived the massacre were in attendance, watching as this vote was taken, knowing that its failure meant the bill was effectively dead.

And the Republicans didn't care.

Why?

I love how the "muh religious freedom" types are conveniently ignoring that a baby cannot hold religious beliefs or agree to be circumcised.

Now that I think about it, we could use a similar project for a certain other global organization with a pedo problem.

My take away from all this was that discriminatory statements aren't protected speech in American workplaces hence the court found what everyone has been saying. That Damore was promoting discrimination.

One forumite will beg to differ but like Damore, they haven't a leg to stand on. Can we call this a wrap now?

There was no "court." There was a lawyer who advised the advised the NLRB. Also, I can't help but notice that the article doesn't single out any discriminatory statements Damore made.

And before you say game over, I'd like to have a one-on-one serious discussion with you regarding the legal and ideological side of this. No insults, no condescension, no personal attacks. What say you?

Tol, you are being hopelessly naive.  Like a certain cancerous cyst of a movement, this bullshit will spring up every now and then just when you'd forgotten about it in a desperate attempt to keep it relevant.  Even though that bridge burned down a long fuckin time ago.

Hunter, it's going to be relevant as long as Damore's lawsuit remains ongoing, at the very least.

So, there are only two possible explanations:

a) Trump-cultists had been getting thousands of retweets and followers that were really bots trying to make them more visible and think that they have more support.

2) Social media is under the control of SJW-COMMIE-MUSLIMS who are trying to silence proud American patriots.

And since one of those explanations would include admitting that Trump-cultists have been duped so of course it can't be that. They are stable geniuses after all.
