There should be separate male and females rest rooms. Males should go into the male restrooms, etc. This is not a civil rights issue, no matter how much these self-mutilators whine about it.

Biden is pretty cool, I liked him in the debates and this news makes me like him more. He didn't look like the kind of guy that supports equality, but looks can be deceiving, in a good way this time.

Actually, the LAW in New York, and in other places, is that a person may use any restromm he or she chooses to, regardless of how they are dressed or their appearance. That is the LAW.

Welcome back, Dys. We've missed you.

Oh, and WAY TO GO, JOE! It's great to see that a politician can support TG six days before the election.

Better practice holding your breath. It has the advantage for the rest of us that you won't be talking while you're waiting.

Eh. Its real life and all you know. Took my show on the road and put my money where my mouth is.

This was notable enough to get me to pop in -- been working mostly on local elections here, given that R-money's been lying his way through the entire campaign...

Then I remembered some of the peeps here, like the guy in coolidge.

Can't blame you. The way you cis folk threaten trans people, the risk your 5 year old poses is terrifying.

You, on the other hand, well, you've got some things to learn about being a responsible parent.

I shudder to think what you use restrooms for, since you obviously do more than dispose of waste products.

Dear, holding my breath does not change the fact that the three stooge's Obama, Biden and Pelosi have been a political disaster.

Let us put aside social issues and look at that poorly planned out "ObamaCare" even nurses who supported it have no idea what it is and what they do know is the mess of red tape it creates.

I do not know of a single conservative who doesn't agree with protecting those who get ill and prevents insurance companies from dropping a person but the rest of it is a red tape mess.

So if you can not do it correctly why do it just for the sake of doing it and that describes Obama, Biden and Pelosi.

Most of these libs know that Obama, Biden and Pelosi are incompetent .
Things they support have been done incorrectly by them.

So atleast get a candidate who does things correctly .

You know I am not thrilled with Romney, I have said this for months but see Obama's mess and hope that Romney can fix much of it, if nothing else the economy.

More and more Czars are not the answer.
