We do have some common ground. We agree that the insurance industry is rife with corruption and by extension the politicians that make this possible. We disagree on the blood for oil argument and I really do not understand the outlawing of treatment for gender identity disorders. They are disorders, just check out the study that Chris Christie cited when he signed a law preventing therapy.<quoted text>
Some transgendered kid in a public school has enough trials and tribulations without adding Right Wing "outrage" at his, or her, very existence.
Please... Let's stop searching so hard for things to be "outraged" about.
Here's what we should be "outraged" over -
We are bombing, killing, and assassinating people 1/2 a world away without the faintest idea if they're really a threat to us, or simply having a wedding party, because we have a rule that any group of people including more than 4 males is considered a "terrorist" conclave - then were shocked, shocked that we create more people with reason to hate us.
We are still paying ridiculous prices for oil, in treasure and the lives of our troops, because we're so stupid and manipulated we refuse to require energy conservation, and subsidize use of renewable energy, solar, geothermal, and wind.
We continue to spend Trillions and Trillions on a War Department, more than the rest of the entire world combined, when not a single country on the planet intends to attack us, or could even if they wanted to, while our bridges, schools, roads, airports, utilities and other infrastructure fall apart.
We continue to cling to "for profit" medical care when the rest of the industrialized world recognized long ago that turning money that could be spent for medical care, into salaries and bonuses for insurance executives is beyond stupid, it's damn near criminal. People die to provide hundreds of millions of dollars in bonuses to insurance company CEOs
Let's fight to fix those problems.
Let's let the kids alone, especially some poor kid with the added stress of being transgendered, or gay, or handicapped, or poor, or non English speaking.
