I take so much comfort from Obama's leadership - not allowing himself to be distracted by global fires and such.

Well, at least we know that he understands what's important..........     **nononono*
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

he executive order follows years of pressure from gay rights groups.

Mr Obama cannot extend the protection to all American workers, however.

The order comes after far broader anti-discrimination legislation stalled in the Republican-led House of Representatives.

The executive order will apply only to federal contractors, which employ nearly one-quarter of the US workforce.

"This is a major step forward in the struggle for freedom and justice for [lesbian, gay, transgender and "queer"] workers and their families," Rea Carey, executive director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, said in a statement. "Now millions of people will have the economic security they need to provide for their families."

yah...this ought go over like a lead balloon at a number of union halls across the nation.....any time one of them works on a Federal project they are a defacto Federal Worker and their boss's company is a Federal Contractor.

What this means is that at a future point a federal contract is going to carry a requirement that a certain percentage of workers, and ever a percentage of the sub-contractors on the job MUST be homo/trans owned.  It already happens with requirements for minority and woman owned businesses.  Competency for the job has absolutely nothing to do with their selection, only that they fulfill the Politically Correct codicils of the contract.

This has a broader impact than is first apparent.

Any business that sells any portion of its products to the federal government is defined as a 'federal contractor'.  e.g., many food companies sell products to U.S. commissaries.  They are 'federal contractors'.

It will be interesting to see if the Feds start losing suppliers...

Oh, they will not lose any suppliers. If they dare, they will see exactly what happened to that baker from Colorado.

It's good to have a sense of humor in the age of Obama.
No matter the color of our skin, we all live under the same laws, we all salute the same great flag, and we are all made by the same almighty God.  We must love each other, show affection for each other, and unite together in condemnation of hatred, bigotry, and violence.  We must rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans.

Racism is evil.  And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans

-President Trump 8/14/17

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

A fun photo of Obama from a blog called Chattering Teeth, which may explain some things.

It is always with seething disdain in the heart and a tear in the eye.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev
