I said you were ignorant of transgender identity.

Well, you must be right, then, if you say so. I must not know a thing about it. You know us old people, we don't have the experience with human nature you young kids do. I probably never met one, even less knew one.

Quite a mind-reader you are.

A pretty poor sport and weak witness when someone shut down simply because their perspective is challenged. Whatever.

So what’s the latest on this

So what’s the latest on this transgender ban? Is it on or not? With great fanfare, Trump Tweets out a total ban on transgendered individuals serving in the military, doing so without any further official command to the Joint Chiefs to set the new policy into motion. The military bosses basically have flipped the one finger salute to Trump indicating (correctly, I believe) that a single Tweet doesn’t constitute a policy directive, and an official communication was needed. And now we are in limbo, while Trump retreats to the campaign trail to recharge his narcissistic batteries with the adulation and unwavering support of his disciples.

That’s governing…

I believe the proper term is, "Winning".

Got this from a friend

Got this from a friend yesterday:
===================================

A well written article someone posted on Facebook.
.............................. ......

To all the whiners on the left, and to the crybabies in the LGBT community, let me throw some reality into your bowl of fruity pebbles...

Nobody has a "right" to serve in the Military. Nobody!!

What makes you people think the Military is an equal opportunity employer? Very far from it.

The Military uses prejudice regularly and consistently to deny citizens from joining for a variety of reasons, like being too old or too young, too fat or too skinny, too tall or too short.

Citizens are denied for having flat feet, or for missing fingers or toes, poor eyesight will disqualify you, poor hearing, undernourished, Drug addiction, metal implants, Criminal history, Anxiety, Phobias, Hearing voices in your head, Self-identify as a Unicorn, handicapped in anyway, Can't run the required distance in the required time, Can't do the required number of pushups or sit-ups, have an eating disorder, or any kind of mental disorder, have a below average IQ, can't read or comprehend English, can't problem solve or make quick decisive decisions.

Are you not really a "morning person" and refuse to get out of bed before noon? You're out!

You have a penis but want to use the women's restroom? You're out!

Don't like the camouflage uniforms because you'd rather wear pink? You're out!

The Military has one job... Prepare for War against anybody who threatens the safety and sovereignty of our nation! Anything else is a distraction and a liability.

Did someone just scream "That isn't Fair"? War is VERY unfair. There are no exceptions made for being special or challenged or socially wonderful or different.

YOU change yourself to meet Military standards. Not the other way around.

I say again: You don't change the Military standards... you must change yourself.

The Military doesn't need to accomodate anyone with special needs or emotional and mental issues. The Military needs to Win Wars.

If any of your personal issues are a liability that detract from readiness or lethality... Then Thank you for applying and good luck in your future endeavors. Who's next in line?

Editorializing aside… what’s the latest? Has the Tweet developed into policy? Have the thousands already serving started to be removed from duty yet? Are Trump’s Tweets supposed to be taken seriously? Are the Joint Chiefs on board yet?

Nothing has been decided, and if it does go forward, it will likely be challenged in the courts:

The nimrod who penned the article apparently presupposes that transgenders who want to serve in the military have "special needs or emotional and mental issues" and would prefer to wear pink instead of camouflage.

The blatant stupidity of the article is so obvious that one could only assume that Melvin posted it with tongue-in-cheek and that well "well written" is meant to be a euphemism for "piece of shit".
