Hmm, yes, more legalized robbery from the rent-seekers who run this place.

That would be awesome. All it takes is a few GOP defectors, and I can easily see that happening in today's climate.

At this point I am not sure Trump will abide by the law though. But I believe the civil servants will if there is a Congressional mandate.

With large companies it is difficult to determine whether their profits support the alt-right but fortunately we do have activists tracking and scraping data on campaign donations that help build boycott lists. No privately offered product or service is so important to me that I will sell my soul to the alt-right to get it. But how do we avoid it unwittingly? This is a tough question.

Here is the approach I take: I tend to support companies who actively support the LGBTQ community. Why? Because if they support the LGBTQ community they likely support human rights overall.

Evidence of this can be found in the Equality Index maintained by the Human Rights Campaign. It can be used to quickly look up a company's equality index to see how they treat their employees.

Another way is... show more

The Good Guide app appears to attempt to have users make conscious choices but I have some skepticism after it was forced to issue an apology for defaming a product using a methodology different from the FDA. Further inspection shows their primary monetization effort is Purview for businesses. So, no matter what approach one takes it needs to be vetted. I do like the buycott effort because it helps one rule out negatives in a way that makes choices less complicated.

Do you know if these people have the data available as an API, or a downloadable file?

Which people?

Good Guide. I'm working on a project where I'll be bringing professional grade investment calculations to people at very affordable prices. I'm trying to do due diligence on behalf of my future customers to find the investments right for them. Being able to filter on this basis would be a great thing.

"In North Carolina, Reps. Larry Pittman, Mark Brody, and Keith Kidwell sponsored HB 65, the “Marriage Amendment Reaffirmation Act.” It would defer to the state’s constitutional amendment, passed in 2012, that defines marriage as between one man and one woman, and ignore the Obergefell v. Hodges Supreme Court ruling that made marriage equality the federal law of the land..." https://weburl.fun/b

They know it won't be found constitutional in state. The whole point is to get the question back in front of the SCOTUS with it's new makeup.

We've got plans in case me and my Fiance need to get quickly married; but id rather not have to break glass on that one if I don't have to. #lgbtq #nc

Federal judge rules ban on conversion therapy doesn’t stifle ‘free speech’ / LGBTQ Nation

U.S. District Judge Robin Rosenberg ruled that Palm Beach County’s and the city of Boca Raton’s bans on state-licensed mental health professionals providing conversion therapy to minors were likely constitutional and refused to issue an injunction. An injunction would have allowed conversion therapy to continue while the lawsuit works its way through court.
