Another shameful act of Congress

The House of Representatives just voted down a bill that would have banned the Defense Department from paying for Transgender surgery and hormonal treatment. 24 Republicans voted to defeat this bill(no surprise the Democrats voted for it) to place another burden on the taxpayers because apparently being re-elected was more important then unit cohesion and combat readiness. It is estimated that between 2,500 to 7,000 transgenders are on active duty and between 1,500 to 4,000 in the Guard and Reserves. So once again politically correctness and that great cure-all diversity rears its ugly head to satisify a small segment of the population. Nothing like being paid for not working and having what should be elective surgery paid for by the taxpayers. I have no problem with anyone who wants to join the military no matter their sexual preference, gender, or wanting to change from John to Jane or Jane to John but I sure have a problem with my tax dollars paying for their surgery and hormonal treatment. Makes you wonder how many more will join just to be able to receive the surgery and treatment for free.

Have we becone a Nation of Intolerance?
February 22, 2017
Our national dialogue has degraded to the point that having a debate on the issues results in name-calling, and in many cases, just plain viciousness if you disagree with the other person's point of view. You either agree with their opinion or be labeled a bigot, racist, homophobe, or xenophobe. ...

November 26, 2016
Jill Stein of the Green Party has filed for a recount in Wisc. and plans to file in MI and PA. I am not sure what she hopes to accomplish other than to muddle an already contentious election result. Apparently, she and those who are harassing Republican electors to not ...
