The US House of Representatives passed a bill 414 to 1 that prohibits discrimination on the basis of a person's genetic information. The Senate previously passed it unanimously. Bookmakers note that Bush is odds on to sign the bill. This is a tremendous boon for the crippled & crazy, sick, lame & lazy of the rapidly draining gene pool in North America.
Rep. Ron Paul (Dingbat-TX) was the sole dissenter. A medical doctor & obstetrician, Mr. Paul recognizes that only the deity can make a genetic mistake & each individual must take personal responsibility for the curses visited upon his or her bodily temple by the unseen, un-named, laws of pre-destination.
Genetic drift, & a lack of species variation, leads to homogeneity of the population. For example, stupid people marry each other--who else would marry them? Then they procreate like rabbits because . . . well . . . because they're stupid. Soon, the schools are crowded with more & more folks lacking in basic intelligence & a dumbing down of the curriculum takes over to suit their lowered capabilities. Next thing you know, 59 million US voters select one of their own, an alleged 91 IQ below-average village idiot to be the President--with substantial assistance from 5 dumbed-down supreme court justices who can't read the Constitution & understand that all election decisions are at the sole discretion of the state(s). Pfffaw.
With this legislation, then, the stupid people are protected in their job seeking, promotions, entry to various governmental jobs, etc. Lack of intelligence is a genetic trait & it will be against the law to discriminate against the massive number of idiots. It will be entertaining to see the claims of discrimination filed & the lawsuits developed by stupid people who seek entrance to Ivy League colleges, major public universities, or medical schools, or law schools, or business programs, or . . . ? The genetic characteristic of not being the brightest bulb in the scoreboard may then be used to launch many a downward spiral career.
Then, too, at some point an enterprising lawyer will convince a huge group of dummies to file a class action lawsuit against their parents for breeding demonstrable genetic failures & casting them adrift on a sea of mediocrity--or less. Quite likely, an on-going publication sequence will present a book, Life for Dummies.
At this juncture, there may be a movement inducing, or co-ercing, smart people to get together, copulate like minks, breed indiscriminately & contribute more bright youngsters to the population base.
But it would probably fail. Smart people are sharp enough to know that parenting intelligent kids is a pain in the ass.
[No person(s) with genetic disease(s) was(were) discriminated against in the generation of this story--which is fiction, anyway, so it's not real & being stupid is not exactly a minority group for all that.]
