I’m thinking of starting a business in Tennessee with the sole purpose of hiring homosexual staff. Here’s the business plan:
Mission statement: To snub our noses at the Tennessee GOP
- Hire employees based on their qualifications and not sexual orientation
- Provide healthcare to employees and their significant others even if Tennessee will not allow them to be married
- Show the Tennessee Legislature that a business can operate and profit while respecting an employee’s personal choices in religion (or lack thereof) and relationships
- Provide the same opportunities to the gay and lesbian, transvestite, transsexual, and asexual communities as the heterosexual community
We can worry about a product or service later. Investors? Angels?

Without debate, the House Commerce Subcommittee voted for legislation Wednesday to bar all Tennessee cities from enacting their own policies against gay, lesbian and/or transgender discrimination. The action was taken by voice vote, with no lawmaker offering audible opposition.
