“At least at this time Ryan T. Anderson’s book is still available on Barnes and Noble’s website. Also Google still has it listed. We’ll see how much longer that lasts. I have been involved with this transgender dysphoria personally: My oldest brother, who has since passed away, and my older son, who was born Michael but now goes by Michele. My brother realized after ‘reassignment surgery’ that things didn’t improve for him and he lost much — wife, children, other family members. He was no happier after than before.” —Colorado
“I would like to know how we get people to realize just how dangerous the Democrats are. How do you get people who have been indoctrinated in school instead of educated to realize that the Democrats want to destroy our Constitution and Bill of Rights? Once they have accomplished that, we will have no rights at all. Anyone have an answer?” —Arizona
“Right now we have a two-party system in this country. Everybody has to align with one party or the other. That is absurd. The problem is that with our current system, we can elect a candidate with as little as 34% of the vote. We need more parties. We also need ranked-choice voting to ensure that any winner gets at least 50% of the vote.” —Illinois
“The reparations scheme seeks to attaint all Americans of European descent for the sins of a few of their ancestors. This is unconstitutional and flagrantly unjust. It also would imply the Cherokee nation is liable for its own ancestors who held black slaves. This would create an additional set of legal problems. If done through the federal Treasury, it would be in violation of the 14th Amendment, Section 4, which canceled any debts claimed by slaveholders related to the emancipation of the slaves. We do not owe their debts, including whatever they might have owed to their former slaves, even if such claims could be carried across generations. Besides, Congress already addressed the issue in settlement acts between 1865 and 1868.” —Minnesota
Re: “Tuesday Short Cuts”
“I’m surprised Mr. Bill Gates doesn’t realize that using natural gas for heating a home is more efficient than using a combustion-fired power plant to provide electricity to heat the home. A natural gas power plant loses about 65% of the energy from gas as waste heat, whereas a standard high-efficiency furnace delivers at least 93% of the heat to the home. That’s 180% more carbon emissions. Now, he might say his housing projects are powered by wind and solar panels, but the reality is that on cold winter nights, the primary power sources must be coal, gas, or nuclear energy. Wind and solar cannot deliver enough even with energy storage without substantial land usage and the environmentally significant volume of resources needed to build them.” —Minnesota
