Eight Years Ago Today

St. Barney, as quoted in the Southern Voice, bellowing in favor of ramrodding his gay-only ENDA 3685 through the House with little chance of subsequent passage by the Senate and absolutely no chance of not being vetoed by George W. Bush:

I believe it would be a grave error to let this opportunity to pass a sexual orientation nondiscrimination bill go forward, not simply because it is one of the most important advances we’ll have made in securing civil rights for Americans in decades, but because moving forward on this bill now will also better serve the ultimate goal of including people who are transgender than simply accepting total defeat today.

We told you that ENDA would not become law in 2007 or 2008 with or without trans-inclusion.

We told you that logic dictated that the only honest, legitimate way to progress in reality was with everything.

We told you that nothing would be gained from ENDA 3685.

We told everyone else that the only thing Gay, Inc., really wanted less than a trans-inclusive ENDA was any ENDA at all, because Gay, Inc., business-oids like being able to discriminate just as much as Cracker Barrel does.

And we were right.

Memo to Joe Solmonese: Jan. 20, 2017 is less than 16 months away.
