Bill would gut university nondiscrimination rules

Another laughable bill courtesy of the Wall Street 1%.

Vanderbilt University - a private institution - has a nondiscrimination policy that quite properly requires student groups to admit any interested students. But now the Tennessee legislature has just passed a right-wing bill to require the school to exempt religious groups.

Politicians are trying to tell a private school what to do? I guess that means Brossart has to put my name back on the student council ballot, right?

Isn't this the silliest thing you've heard since - well, probably yesterday when one of the latest right-wing media hit pieces against the Occupy movement was debunked.

The bill now sails to right-wing Gov. Bill Haslam's desk - opening the possibility of yet more well-deserved ridicule for Haslam if he signs it.
