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.
My strength comes from within me. I have never been a victim. From being molested, being beaten for gay rights, to having cancer, I am not a victim and I never will be.... I’ve just never had the time to spare. ❌ You can’t complain or feel sorry for yourself. 🤨 Enduring hardships and deciding not to surrender is strength. 👍🏻 Never allow anything to define you and make you a victim..... forgive, forget, and move forward. 😘 I completely lock something away in my mind and give it no further thought. I am always ready to move on and leave anyone or anything behind that isn’t positive or good for me. ☯️ I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong and always being optimistic. ♥️✝️
Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls..... the greatest of these; the largest characters are seared with scars. ♥️😘 - All the best to anyone reading this.
When it sunk in that being gay could get you beat or put on the street, I realized that I had to listen to MY voice, MY soul. Today, it saddens me that too many people listen to the noise of the world, instead of themselves. I broke every rule and I'm proud of it because I did it in a positive manner, with no ill will for anyone. ❤️ I never bothered with who hated me as a result, even when that person turned out to be my Dad. 🤷♂️ I purged myself of what others thought of me when I was a child. The Creator was with me the entire time. ✝️ It brings tears to my eyes when I see people hung up on what others think of them. 😢
No one can make you "feel" something about yourself unless you give them that power. No one can stop you except you. 😘 No matter what happens, keep going.
"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.
Yesterday, Jordan Palmer gave an update on his health status, he currently remains Stage IV(b):
Later today I finish #radiation. Still on the new #cancer pills. 💊 Tuesday I have a PET Scan to see what other #radiation and treatments I need or if additional treatment (in their opinion, if I don't agree, I find another doctor, I'm on my 7th one) will be beneficial. 🤒 🤕
Earlier this week I thought I would die, I had these huge #bumps on my #forehead and I got very #sick. 🤢 So my doctor says, you have a massive sinus infection and that's what those bumps are on your forehead and another reason why you feel so bad. 😖 I had no clue this was even possible!

I've fallen 🤕 more times that I can count because my right leg is so weak from the #cancer treatments. I've fallen down the stairs at home twice and hurt my back but I'm not complaining. My doctors, 🏥 even at Cancer Treatment Centers of America say that my mobility loss is permanent. I'll have a cane. I wish my friend Matthew Vanderpool was here with me. He would never leave my side and I miss him so much. 🏳️🌈 Kentucky Equality Federation keeps me busy.
I would suggest following him on Facebook or Twitter.
MY THOUGHTS AS MODERATOR / DIRECTOR: Knowing Jordan Palmer and working with him is such an honor. He is the most gracious person I have ever known. I will continue to volunteer and continue to work as my time permits and pray for a miracle for him.
