The federal government, legally, CANNOT issue a national lockdown or "stay at home order". We still have rule of law in our Union and like it or not, the States share joint sovereignty. However, chief executives [governors] in states who have not issued "stay at home orders" are killing people, deliberately.
"More police🚔. More jails👮.😂The joke is on us.🤦🏻♂️Drug abuse is a mental health issue, not a criminal one.💊💉People turn to drugs not because they want to be addicts, but because something is horribly wrong and they simply don’t wish to feel it anymore.🤔😞I’ve never met an addict who on career day at school “dreamed” of being an addict like U.S. House of RepresentativesSpeaker Paul Ryan“dreamed” of taking#Medicareand#Medicaidfrom citizens.⚠️❌😡
Putting drug addicts in jail is like putting people who have an illness and need medical care in jail and simply ignoring the underlying problem. But why not? We’ve been doing it this long and we never change anything here unless ordered to do so by theKentucky Supreme Courtor theSupreme Court of the United States. Sadly, that is how progress is made here." - Jordan Palmer
When a TRUE war HERO like U.S. Senator John McCain (R-Arizona) or a longtime conservative like U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) criticize this sudden and ill-conceived decision towards Transgendersoldiers, you have to scratch your head.
Also, when Trump said "my generals," our military is not the private property of the temporary occupant of the Oval Office.
But, everything else Trump has tried to do has failed miserably so now he is taking cheap shots in desperation but playing with people's lives and careers not to mention breaking additional campaign promises. #Trans#WeAreKY - Jordan Palmer
#Trans #KY #USA #USMilitary President #Trump has, once again, betrayed the #LGBTI community he claimed to support during his campaign. In a stream of tweets, President Donald Trump announced this morning that he has banned transgender people from the US #military. Trans people were allowed to serve openly before Trump’s decision to force currently serving military members out of the armed forces.
--> Please note this decision notes NOT apply to State Defense Forces , State Militias, or State National Guard units.
Yesterday, it was reported that Vice President Mike #Pence, long a foe of civil rights for #LGBT people, was behind the push to discriminate against transgender people. Unsuccessful so far at getting Trump to issue a “religious freedom” executive order reminiscent of his disastrous broad license to discriminate he pushed through as #Indiana #governor, Pence turned his attention to lobbying for the ban on transgender people in the military.
“Instead of undermining the military, and disgracefully trying to take away necessary health care from soldiers, Vice President #Pence should be working to ensure all federal armed forces and their families are getting the support and resources they need and deserve, regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation. Vice President #Pence definitely has some unresolved homosexual, transgender, and transsexual issues he needs to come to terms with.” - Secretary-General Col. Jordan Palmer.
