Discrimination, Discrimination!
It is Everywhere!

It is in your weeds and on your signs.  It is around the corner and behind the vines! 

D-I-S-C-R-I-M-I-N-A-T-I-O-N!

Don’t look now…. you might be offended at any moment by everyday life.  The answer, of course, is to sue or sic the big Bad Government on the (obviously white heterosexual male) offenders.

Item Number One:  “Men At Work” signs to vanish in Atlanta

In the battle of the sexes, women’s magazine editor Cynthia Good said this was a skirmish she had to fight.

Across Atlanta they stood, orange signs with black letters that read “Men At Work” or “Men Working Ahead.”

Sometimes, the signs stood next to women working alongside the men.

Good demanded Atlanta officials remove the signs and last week, Atlanta Public Works Commissioner Joe Basista agreed.

Score one for gender equality, Good said Wednesday.

Item Number Two: Gay Rights Group Offended By Brush-Clearing Project

Bristol City Council (UK) wants to prune bushes and remove cover from an area known as the Downs to improve the landscape and encourage rare wildlife.

But its own gay rights group has opposed the move, claiming that cutting back the bushes was “discriminating” to homosexual men who used the area for late night outdoor sex known as dogging.

Work on the beauty spot has been temporarily delayed while talks with gay rights groups take place to try and break the deadlock.

Oy.

Get used to it folks! Obama’s Reign of the People of The World will be all about identity politics and them vs. them.  Dr. King would be so proud.

Climbing Out From The World

Hi gang.  Since going away on vacation the week of July 4th, my blogging has been sporadic at best.   Part of it is just trying to keep my head above water at my job.   You know, my REAL job — the one that pays the bills and the one where I’m responsible for people and things.

Work travel has been quite hectic for me this year versus the past few.  Usually I have time to blog when I’m at hotels or waiting for another delayed flight.   So that leads into the other part of it…

Blech.  Just not really into writing this summer.  Every time I see a news item worthy of my particular brand of snarkiness; well, I just say “why bother”?  In an email with Dan (GPW), I mused that perhaps I’m suffering from post-Hillary/pre-Convention blues.

In any case, I’ll try my best and hopefully will be back to full steam when the real fun begins on Labor Day.  You heard there is a Presidential Election this year, right?  🙂
