ENDA threatens fundamental liberties for all Americans

ENDA threatens fundamental liberties for all Americans.

Key Points - from the Heritage Foundation

1. The Employment Non-Discrimination Act of 2013 (ENDA) creates new, subjective protected classes that will expose employers to unimaginable liability.
2. ENDA would further weaken the marriage culture and the freedom of citizens and their associations to affirm their religious or moral convictions.
3. ENDA also would limit the ability of private employers to run their own businesses and is an unjust assault on the consciences and liberties of people of goodwill who happen not to share the government’s opinions about issues of marriage and sexuality.
4. Employers should respect the intrinsic dignity of all of their employees, but ENDA is not the right policy to realize that goal.

News to Know: Obama wants to tax your cell phone

"We can do this without Congress": Obama working to unilaterally impose tax on cell phones.
A tax without the approval of Congress––without the approval of our elected representatives? Sounds like taxation without representation to me.

Wait, didn't we once fight a war over that? (To be fair, the American War of Independence was fought over a longer list of injustices, which can be read here.)

Mableton teens linked to gang are accused in beating death

Racism in any form or on any side is unequivocally wrong––and that includes ignoring stories which are uncomfortable and difficult to spin.

The fact that nobody wants to sell this story as an incident of race-based violence makes me suspicious. Perhaps it's only "racist" depending on who is attacking who. Or perhaps there's less racism than we're lead to believe.

What do you think?
