ezs note:  Let's do a little math for you.  In 2014, the United States spent 581.0 billion dollars on defense spending.  In China, during the same period, they spent 129.4 billion dollars. What this means is even if we spent the equivalent of the entire Chinese amount on transgender operations rather than defense spending,  we would still have almost double what the Chinese spend.

ezs note:  Well.. you can.  The phone number for the Attorney General in Arkansas is 501-682-2007.  If she refuses, or is silent, you can start a grassroots movement for her opponent.  Am I asking a lot?  Yup.  But it's been done before, and you can do it again.

ezs note:  South Dakotans - if you find yourself pissed off about this whole deal, remember, YOU can do something about it.  Write a letter to the editor.  Appear on cable TV.  Knock on the door of your friends and neighbors, to let them know that the term 'transgender' isn't someone in some far-off place - you're their friend.
