It’s insanity, especially because these folks would seethe in a New York minute about counseling to help homosexuals become ex-homosexuals.

Oh, the irony. These folks need psychiatric care, not medical procedures. Massachusetts kidnapped a child to replace her necessary medical care with unnecessary and harmful psychiatric treatment.

Time to revoke Mass' membership in the Union. Too bad we can't relocate Lexington Green, the Old North Bridge, the Old North Church, Boston Harbor, et al. If we could, I'd say we move 'em all to Texas.

Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!

These therapies and or surgery are expensive right?

So how does that effect the coffers of the Commonwealth and by extension if employers are required to shoulder this burden, who else will exit an already shell of a State of what is was 30 or 40 years ago, in terms of manufacturing?

Love to hear Howie Carr's take on it...

The worst part?

Watch all the 40 to 60 yr old liberals from MA sick of their taxes at some point look to retire in GA, SC, TN or NC and not change their centricity and try to change the South's...
