Men & Women Restrooms

No link to this one. A speaker at the University of Utah's Pride day made some references to Transgender people feeling left out because there are no restrooms at the U for his type of people. Just so you know I can type cast this person because the stupid federal government allows separating genders and races on almost all surveys, questionnaires and forms that are in use today. This he/she or maybe a she/he wanted the world to recognize that Transgender people (not really)  need the same treatment as the other sexes. Bathrooms with a sign recognizing that they are different. So what will the sign look like? When there are restrooms set aside for families you see the stick figure of a guy, gal & a baby and in a sign stating there is a changing table. Women stick figures have a dress on them. Male restrooms have pants on the stick figure. So will the Transgender restroom sign (at the present it will take about 5 years for this to happen) be a two stick figures back to back with one in pants and the other in a dress? Or will it be just one with a dong on one side and nothing but exclamation marks at the waist of the other? Don't know and don't care (I do care about the length the government has gone to make gays and lesbians feel good about themselves & this too will happen for the Bi's and Tran's).
One other issue the person stated was a problem, the issue of separate dorm rooms for guys and gals. Where do the TGs fit in. No where if you ask me. You were born the way you are because your father supplied a gene that made you a girl or boy. That gene probably over rides whatever you say made you the opposite.

Who is in CHARGE!

I don't watch the republican debates that have been on TV. I heard today that there have been 12!!!!!!!! Why? The media picks the winners and the non winners. Ron Paul went 40 minutes without being asked a question in the debate from Tuesday evening. Besides the stupid questioning, there is the constant interuptions by the candidates. Is there no civility among men? It is just not right (and I don't mean right as in wing of the RINO party). The responses are also canned as much as the questions. I am surprised that a station that has hosted a debate hasn't piped in laughter for one of the favs when they crack a joke, joke isn't it. So my point about who is in charge is referring to those who organize each and every debate. What I and I think many others would like to see is a response from each candidate for each question asked. I would really enjoy a response from Ron Paul or Gary Johnson, both libitarians. It would be good to hear that guy from PA or MN that is still in the running but not a good percentage in the polls. Maybe he is really running for VP at this point, but he has an OPINION & a PLAN.
Do I care if Perry had a GPA at Texas A&M of 2.5. Hell no. Because the later in the 20th century the easier it became to get a degree. U of Al was infamous in the 1970's for giving everyone who paid money a degree. U of NM is the same now with the lottery scholarships that are given to almost everyone who applies. A college degree is only a piece of paper proving nothing other than perseverience.  So for the one in a million chance anyone in a position to make  changes to this process, PLEASE HIRE SOMEONE WITH INTELLIGENCE to moderate these debates (and maybe I will watch a complete hour or two).

WhtWhy is it that way?

Earlier today I had some thoughts I wanted to publish . But something happened, I FORGOT THEM. I am sure that it had to do with another of those National something day, week or month. Of course in the medical world there are thank a nurse week, thank a sterilization employee week, thank a CWT worker week, hug a  psychiatrist week and acknowledge a house keeping employee week.

NOW I REMEMBER: #1) The Top 1% Owns 40% of the Nation's Wealth
#2) The Top 1% Take Home 24% of National Income
#3) The Top 1% Own Half of the Country's Stocks, Bonds and Mutual Funds
#4) The Top 1% of Americans Have Only 5% of the Nation's Personal Debt:
#5) The Top 1% Are Taking In More off the Nation's Income Than at Any Other Time Since the 1920s(I don't understand that statement).

This is what the people demonstrating on wall street are mad and upset about (though many have no clue why they are there). While there are things in the trading of stocks that should not be, short selling, congress in their continuous stupidity along with the SEC will not put a stop to those who make money from the buying and selling of stocks no matter which way they go, up or down. There is just something wrong with that. Now I don't give a damn what the rest of the world does, however if you buy a stock because you think it is going to increase in value, and it goes down in price then you should not benefit from the loss of value in that stock.
The wealth building playing field is not level. It has not been for a century or more and will not until the simplification of buying and selling stocks is reduced to if it is up you make money and if it goes down below what you paid you loose money. There should be no continuous tax on the gain other than the difference between the last sell off and any increase since you bought it again. Does that make sense? If you paid a $1.00 and it goes to $2.00 and you sell, you are taxed on the gain. If you buy it at $2.05 and it goes to $3.05 you pay again when you sell it. If there is a tax deduction because you are incorporated and you loose in the stock market it should be done away with.
Just my thoughts as a lay(not sure of spelling) person.
