No, we did. .
A federal judge blocked Trump's ban.
So congratulations.
Happy $rainbows$ to taxpayers one and all.

    Progressives have pushed the accelerator to the floor. Can we pump the brakes enough to keep this nation from going off the cliff? This entire situation is against the Constitution. I DO NOT want my tax dollars used for this abomination!!

      Progressives would want to see you in handcuffs just for expressing an opinion like that.
      Just ask Kalifornia's Gov. Moonbeam Jerry Brown.
      Hope you don't live in that dysfunctional state.

    Cripes when will this bullshit end. I don't even begin to know where to start to explain how wrong this is. Mental issues used to equate to a military discharge.

      Thank a lib judge for feeling we taxpayers should pony up to enable mental issue desires of a transgender nature.
      While writing the above, me dino first wrote "thinking" but substituted that word with "feeling."
      "To feel" as opposed "to think" is what lib feel-good bleeding hearts do.
      A military discharge is a far more rational and economical way to handle those who selfishly sign up to sneak a pricey personal problem into the armed forces.
      I suppose now soldiers have to take extra care to mind their Kalifornia-styled he, she or it pronouns even in the heat of combat.
      I named a stray cat that's now a pet "Moocher."
      Perhaps calling a federally funded transgender that or just plain "bum" could protect soldiers from facing a court martial for using politically incorrect pronouns.
      (Thus does old dino sarcastically snarl).

    Denying your bodies natural existence and reality
    is a mental illness.
    Treating the soldiers mental health is ethical.
    Changing their body surgically is not rational or anyone's responsibility.

    So I suppose a boob job or maybe teeth braces or hair replacement is not out of the question for us all to pay for. While at it what the hell how about massages and tattoos.

      Free health care is pat of the military compensation package.
      What you listed on that last line is not health care but cosmetic goodies a soldier should have to pay for his or herself.
      Having your teeth cleaned and checked and filling a cavity is health care. Braces? Maybe if it relates to an injury in the line of duty.

        Agree 100%. I retired from the Navy 20 years ago. I thought the military would be the last thing to become politically correct. Sad day for the United States!!!!!

          I was a Marine which is in the Navy Department.
          Marines have Navy doctors.
          Imagine a combat Marine getting his free girlie fix.
          Guess that's when dogs and cats will start to mate.

    The continued stand of the liberal/progressive judges in opposing the President's attempts to right the ship of state and return to an adherence of the tenets of the Constitution has consequences. I expect the pendulum to swing back towards common sense and logic with a vengence which the left is totally unprepared for.
    Maybe wishful thinking from the old Rev. So tired of the "feeling" issues and losing focus on reality, and the rest of us paying for it. This "trans.." issue is just another reason to oppose anything remotely progressive/leftist/etc. Liberalism is a serious mental disorder and should be treated as such.

      Me dino sincerely hopes you are right about that pendulum swing.

        No it isn't. As long as there is some common sense left there can be temporary reactions to excesses that move faster than the population is willing to go, but the trend remains the same until the basic ideas driving the culture are corrected.

    This argument is only a hate Trump issue, there is no right to get someone else to pay for some physical part of a perceived sex change. What happens when these individuals want to change back? Will they just join the military to get it paid for? How about someone that joins the military then refuses to go to a war zone, is that not treason, or at least cowardice anymore?

    Maybe we need a dual tax system that allows each participant to select one or the other. If you want the military to pay for transgender surgery you check the box and the IRS bills you for your "fair share", If you don't want it, check the other box, no charge. If you want Obamacare (with or without sex changes) check the box(s) and pay your "fair share", if not check the other box. If you want to build and use national highways check the box, if not don't want it then you can't use the highways, you are not authorized a vehicle, check the box for bike paths.

      I have to disagree NealS. It is not a hate Trump issue but bleeding hearts reasoning for existence. I may agree with your tax part though!!!!

        It not all of those demonstrating that would take advantage of the ruling, those are the real Trump haters. Most of those demonstrating could really care less. I view that the {pick one} (non-weird, straight, normal) people that agree with free (taxpayer funded) transgender surgery only agree with it because Trump is against it. In my mind that actually makes them just as weird as those that might benefit from it. That is my definition of a hate Trump issue. If he was for it they would only be against it. Someday he may even get smart enough to use this as a tool against them.

            I have to agree with Trump on that issue too. If you think another country is better than this one, he'll actually fly you there and drop you off. Not many dissenters have actually taken him up on that offer, in fact none that I am aware of. I think we should insist they actually leave the country that they hate so much. It obvious they are not going to do anything to make it better. Just how did so many people get so stupid in such a short amount of time, I'll never understand. It must be in the water or perhaps in the air.

              At this point lots of college students, who are being indoctrinated by socialist professors, have parents that went through the same process.
              My theory is, where the USA is concerned, that these people are at the core of a communicable disease that part stems back to LBJ's "The Great Society" program and even farther back to Woodrow Wilson.
              On a worldwide level, this kind of stupid has already spread like a pandemic. Just look look at the libtard mess Europe has become. Glad my grandparents got the hell out of there.
              I'm glad Peanutbrain Jimmy Carter helped to fully wean me from the same mode of errant thinking.
