    After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow..........Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming.........victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you

    It's great to have a president that won't let those kind of politics and distractions into our military

    Trump plays the libs like fiddle. Time will tell if he is doing it for good or bad. Frankly, I'm starting to envision him as Catbert...

    That being said, I don't think this is a bad thing. Medical costs, legalism arguments, social interaction issues, these are not what a military needs to be working on. They need to be kicking butt and taking names. Noonie is right, it will go to court, burning lots of dem/lib time, energy and cash.

    It won't get thrown out. It'll probably go all the way to the USSC. GLBTQ advocacy groups have lots of lawyers and deep pockets. They will file the first lawsuit in a liberal court's jurisdiction, to make sure that they get the initial ruling they want and then the federal government/military will appeal it to the next level.

    President Donald Trump announced via Twitter that he is not allowing transgender people to serve in the U.S. military, a reversal of former President Obama’s decision last year to let them serve.
    In a series of tweets, he said:

    “After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical cost and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you

    The mission of the Military is to make loud noises, break things and kill people. It is not a petri dish for social experiments or a place for tax payer dollars to be wasted on people who are fighting biology.

    Very well stated, Dir Pyro ...

    Especially your second sentence, "It is not a petri dish for social experiments or a place for tax payer dollars to be wasted on people who are fighting biology."

    I had an issue with men going into the women's bathrooms, but not this. If you can beat somebody's ass, be trained to beat somebody's ass, or be trained to be able to shoot ISIS at long range, then you should be allowed to join.

    And what about the transgender people already part of the military? Does their service not matter? It looks to me like it's being spit on.
