Re: U.S. politics thread and Joe Biden-the Ronan O'Gara of U.S. Presidents

The challenge will be to get these people to move elsewhere, where there could be jobs for them. But yes, governments have limited impact on jobs. They can try to create an environment to favor jobs creation, but what people do with that environment is not under their control. Based on historical r...

Great. So being transgender is like a disability? Perhaps gay people should have their own class also.
