Entry!

Holy moly... seriously, I did not that I would bring this blog this far, over this many years...  yet here I am.  Or, far more appropriately, here we are. Gawd, it sounds so, so trite, yet I am truly humbled by this endeavor. 

I will bring a bit of transgender news each day from the state, country and world.  Please, do your part and give 'em hell.

My choices for West Hartford


Credit:  http://sparkup.co/blog/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/vote.jpg

After consideration, I made the following choices.  Here goes:

Town Council

Shari Cantor (D)
Dallas Dodge (D)
Mary Fay (R)
Beth Kerrigan (D)
Liam Sweeney (D)
Ben Wenograd* (D)

*my choice for Mayor

Board of Education

Cheryl Greenberg (D)
Deb Polun (D)
Lorna Thompson-Farquharson (D)

Now, some of you may be wondering why I chose to drop Chris Barnes and pick up Mary Fay instead for the sole Republican seat.  I listened to Chris Barnes and I must say I was very nonplussed by what he said.  It was very boilerplate nonsense.  Mary Fay, on the other hand, sounded like a genuine Town Council member.  Plus, the fact that she is a lesbian will mean that LGBT needs will be heard.  

I hope that a few people from West Hartford will read what I've written and will consider these matters when voting. However, if you are not from West Hartford, your vote is just as important. Read your papers and watch the League of Women Voters.

And on Tuesday, VOTE.

ezs note:  Oh boy.  Donald Trump - president.  Isn't that just wonderful.

Well, I'll tell you what you do.  You call or e-mail, often.  I don't think that it will matter that much dialing Trump's number - but I do think it will matter a great deal to your representative.  But - ya gotta call.  If you are uncertain who your representative is click www.house.gov and enter your ZIP code.

But - ya gotta call!!

The rest of the ticket


Credit:  http://www.canivote.org/New-Election-Day-2016jpg.gif

So far, I have covered the top of the ticket by selecting Hillary Clinton (D) over Donald Trump
(R), Gary Johnson (L) or Jill Stein (G).  Here is the rest of the ticket.

US Senator
Richard Blumenthal (D) over Dan Carter (R), Richard Lion (L) , or Jeffery Russell (G)

US Representative
John B. Larson (D) over Matthew M. Corey (R) or S. Michael DeRosa (G)

State Senator
Beth Bye (D) over Mark Merritt (R)

State Rep. (18)
Andrew Fleischmann (D) over Rob Levine (R) 

State Rep. (19)
Chris Barnes (R) over Derek Slap (D)

In the 20th State Rep. district (Joe Verrengia-D) and the Judge of Probate (Owen Eagan-D) both are unopposed. As far as the Registrar of Voters goes, hell, flip a coin - they both get in.

Makin' a difference!

I hear it often.  To be honest, far too often. I hear people say, "Well what can we do?  That's politics for ya."

But it's not true.

A few days ago, Rep. John Kavanagh, village idiot, was about to propose a bill to the Arizona legislature.  He said his withdrawal was due to a typographical error.  Yeah, right.  More likely it was due to the appalling (and amazing) stupidity of its author.

So,  what was this bill?  Let's say a transgender woman has to use the bathroom.  But our ever intrepid policeman is there to check her.  He asks for her to present her papers - her original birth certificate!!
Even if she had full surgery, that wouldn't satisfy Rep. Kavanagh.  But she has to go, so she pushes past the policeman and relieves herself.

She might not have realized it, but she's in big trouble now.  The policeman hauls her in, an unsympathetic judge hears the case, and throws her into jail for six months.

All because she had to pee.

Fortunately, this hasn't happened yet.  What happens is that when you e-write, bad legislation is more likely to be killed, and good legislation is likely to be passed.

Contact your legislator.  Tell him/her that freedom to marry is freedom for all.  Tell him that two systems of taxation - one for heterosexuals and another for homosexuals - is unfair, and possibly unconstitutional.

Concord, North Carolina - Richard Hudson (R) - NC8
Stony Brook, New York - Tim Bishop (D) - NY1
Bixby, Oklahoma - Jim Bridenstine (R) - OK1
West Hartford, Connecticut - John Larson (D) - CT1
Moorhead, Minnesota - Collin Peterson (D) - MN7
Bloomington, Illinois - Aaron Schock (R) - IL18

As always, the above are picked at random via the Internet.  For the US, go to www.house.gov and enter your ZIP code.  For Canada, go to www.parl.gc.ca and follow the instructions.
