At this point, the GOP should just rebrand themselves the "Mean-Spirited as*holes of America" Party. F***ing pricks.

Quote:
A central Pennsylvania borough is poised to become the first municipality to repeal anti-discrimination safeguards that protect residents against discrimination based on their sexual orientation, ethnicity or gender identity.

The plan by Chambersburg Borough Council to vote Monday to rescind the anti-discrimination ordinance comes only four months after the borough ratified the ordinance in October.

...

The ordinance, which extends protections against discrimination to gay, transgender or genderqueer people in employment, housing and public accommodations, was passed in October by the then-Democratic majority council.

The political makeup of the council, however, changed with the November municipal election, which ushered in a 7-3 Republican majority.

Ah, Chambersburg. Yes, PA seems to grow more reactionary every day. Lots of working class and poor people who think the wealthy are going to save them. Because history bears that out.

I'm thinking "red states" that have strong GOP leaders that enjoy manipulating constituents.

Americans with anti-gay sentiments should remember, when someone else' rights are taken away today, eventually your rights might be gone tomorrow.
