Commission Finds ‘No Compelling Medical Reason’ To Exclude Transgender Americans From Military
March 13, 2014 5:28 AM

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) — An independent commission led by a former U.S. surgeon general has concluded there “is no compelling medical reason” for the U.S. armed forces to prohibit transgender Americans from serving and that President Barack Obama could lift the decades-old ban without approval from Congress, according to a report being released Thursday.

The report said Department of Defense regulations designed to keep transgender people from joining or remaining in the military on the grounds of psychological and physical unfitness are based on outdated beliefs that require thousands of current service members either to leave the service or to forego the medical procedures and other changes that could align their bodies and gender identities.

The left feels there is no compelling reason for a military.

I can find no compelling reason to allow Libtards to have any say at all on matters concerning our military.
I come in peace, I didn't bring artillery.  But I am pleading with you with tears in my eyes:  If you bleep with me, I'll kill you all.

I didn't enlist in the Corps just to watch my country become a Third World Communist Shit-hole. Don't know anyone who did.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

Isn't this going to cause a lot of headaches among the Muzzie Infiltrators that Obama wants in our military?

I wish that someone could give me just one compelling reason why a homo, cross-dresser, transvestite or transgendered individual should be allowed to serve in our military.

Just one.

1)  Because they're not "in heat" 24/7....just like you.



Just be grateful you pass as normal.   Others don't have that advantage.

“We determined not only that there is no compelling medical reason for the ban, but also that the ban itself is an expensive, damaging and unfair barrier to health care access for the approximately 15,450 transgender personnel who serve currently in the active, Guard and reserve components,” said the commission led by Dr. Joycelyn Elders, who served as surgeon general during Bill Clinton’s first term as president, and Rear Adm. Alan Steinman, a former chief health and safety director for the Coast Guard.

As soon as I read the title, I knew old mushmouth was back. 

And I would not put it past Obama to sign an EO doing exactly what these wackadoos want.

The inmates really are running the asylum.
