I know it’s one of the amendments to the Constitution requiring hormone therapy be paid for by taxpayers. I just can’t quite put my finger on it. 14th? 1st? Well, I’m SURE it’s there SOMEWHERE. Close to the “requirement” to fund Planned Parenthood.

Prison just isn’t what it used to be.

Headline writer should be fired.

There is a huge stretch between denying them something and paying for it.

I agree with the court ruling. Give them “therapy” that will make sure they never ever file another lawsuit again.

A three-judge panel upheld the ruling, saying denying inmates medical treatment amounted to "torture."

"Torture" ... seriously? With such a loose definition, denying an addict his fix is torture. Last I heard, using hormones to combat mother nature is an "elective" procedure. I'm helping to pay for deviants to waste their lives this way with my tax dollars precisely why?

I think we’ve seen quite enough. What should replace the entity now known as the “United States of America”?

“Obamacare’s gonna ram all this sex-related crap down our throats and down our childrens’ throats;”

Actually ... I think it’ll be quite the opposite. Sure they’ll promise all sorts of medical goodies while they institute the whole medical scheme. However, once it starts to fail, these kinds of things will be the first to go. You’ll then see them deem “promiscuous behavior” as a reason to get “the pill” (as Obama put it) as opposed to medical treatment. The media will pay absolutely no attention to these “transgenders” or homosexuals or whatever the new “sex du jour” is these days.

The Marxists are so predictable ... they promote their useful idiots to advance their agenda. Then, with satanic glee, they go and mass murder them as soon as they’re deemed useless. I mean, the last thing you’d want is one of your useful idiots turning on you, right?

So, in a way, we’ll have it rammed down our throats ... however, once its useless ... and it’ll become useless rather quickly ... it’ll just disappear! Magic!

I think that it emanated from a penumbra.
