Equality in Federal Contract Bidding

by Keoni Galt on October 17, 2010

Reading today’s Pacific Business News – a Hawaii-based business paper, I saw the most recent issues latest front page, above-the-fold headline:

Apparently, some feminists and their mangina politicians passed some law 10 years ago that gave preference to women owned businesses in certain industries when bidding for Federal Contracts. This law has basically not been used or enforced since it was passed…but now that we are in the midst of the Great Depression 2.0, and more men than women have been getting laid off, NOW the Federal Government decides is the perfect time to resurrect this affirmative action legislation.

The rule, which was first proposed by Congress in 2000 but only published in the Federal Register last week, aims to increase the amount of federal contracting dollars that go to businesses that are at least 51 percent owned by women in 83 industries in which women were found to be underrepresented — everything from construction to accounting to public relations. The agency has 120 days from the date of publication to implement the new rule

Oh, but it gets worse than a simple case of affirmative action…

The new rule puts some teeth in the regulations, putting women-owned businesses on similar footing as service-disabled veteran-owned businesses and businesses that participate in the SBA’s 8(a) business-development program, which enjoy the benefits of bidding for contracts that are set aside for their specific programs.

Let’s get this straight….

…if you’re a male who went to fight for this country in one of the various wars for the US Military, and got a limb blown off or lost your sight or some other horrific war injury…and you come home and start a business, you will be able to receive equal preference under this program…equal to other American business owners who are designated for this legislation simply because they were born with a vagina and whom also own a business?!?!


“This new ruling is going to be substantial in that it will mean something,” Downs said.

Oh it will mean something alright…it means the only way a man can have an equal opportunity to receive preference under this new regulation like a woman, will be to get disabled while fighting for our Cuntry.

Words fail me at the moment.
