Did you know the U.S. is going to hold elections this November?

By a remarkable coincidence, folks at GetEQUAL just reminded me that ENDA has still not passed. On a related note, Congress recently rushed through a bunch of "emergency" funding to harass would be immigrants to the United States (you know, the "bad" ones that try to sneak in from Mexico).

To recap: Codifying the rights of those people? Too hot to handle in an election year (if ever).

Cracking down on the actions of those other* people? Whooo! Unanimous vote! Re-elect us all now!

* Obviously there are plenty of immigrants who are LGBTQ and/or have marginalized ways of gender expression (not that many policy makers know about intersectionality or anything).
