New Hampshire Senate Democrats DISCRACE AMERICA No Hope for Granite State Transgender Bill


By Kelli Anne Busey April 24, 2009

Toilet politics revisited in New Hampshire.

Once again the worst of America has surfaced. Cronyism and demagoguery at its worst.

The only thing that angers me more than a civilian who makes a living by lieing about hard working Americans are politicians who use these fear mongers lies to lend credence to bigotry.

The Democrats in New Hampshire's Senate judiciary found a way to slink to a new low and shirked their public responsibilities by lending credence to lies with there public office's.

Transgender people were pleading with the Senate Judiciary Committee, relating horrifying stories of discrimination, only to have the democrates on the committee give credence to the testimony of Kevin Smith's TWO alleged incidences of POTTY politics and effectively throwing away transgender people.

The Judiciary Committee voted unanimously against giving transgender people hope.

Source The Nashua Telegraph "Senate panel nixes transgender bill"

"Kevin Smith of Cornerstone Policy Research, a conservative activist group, disagreed and offered 'media reports' about two incidents in Philadelphia and Maryland."

(Cornerstone apparently was all that the democrates needed to be dissuaded from pursuing justice.)

"Senate Democrats admitted the coordinated campaign from the Republican State Committee and socially conservative groups to label this as the "bathroom bill" condemned its approval this year."

"I think going forward, because it has so much baggage attached to it right now, it is probably best the bill is ITL," said Sen. Beth Reynolds, D-Plymouth, referring to inexpedient to legislate, the equivalent of killing it."

What media report is Smith offering?

I know of one incident in Maryland when a member of a group fighting transgender rights manufactured a story. Her HUSBAND cross dressed and ran thru the woman's dressing room of an exclusive Gaithersburg health club(where the democrats go) When the absurdity of this ploy was exposed she perjured herself by allowing another person to accept responsibility for that outrage! The club owner herself doubted the validity of her entire story, but the police failed to even show any interest.

Is that the 'Maryland' media report smith is aware of? Is that what the 'baggage' Reynolds and the democrats are throwing away human rights because of?

Throw those lousy democrats out and take the rest of the trash with you.

Damn....I've been following this. That really, really sucks. It's so ridiculous I cannot even wrap my head around it.

I'm so sorry people are such idiots (I'm being charitable and trying not to flip out & use a series of expletives).

So I am way into the Indigo Girls, and on the new album there is this song called "second time around". Here's the lyrics, some of which are remotely relevant (but it takes on new meaning when you actually hear Amy sing it):

-
The second time around, you know it really got me down.
Sister- don't you judge it, just keep it to yourself now. And
If you ain't got nothing good to say, don't say nothing at all.

I got bitten by the bitter bug, and now I just can't get enough
Of ill will and my own conceit. I'm weary of the world it seems.
I'm weary of the world, weary of the world it seems.

It's sort of always gone my way. I'm just a little bit off these
Days. Like I've had hard knocks all my life, like I'm a Bible
Belt wife. Like I didn't see it coming, like I didn't walk it
Willingly.

See, I never want to sing again "La la la" like a butterfly.
Without my wits about me, without my heart in line.
Third time's a charm and this is mine.

You said you heard Loretta sing and felt the loneliness
Seeping in. The cowboys made you uneasy, you're a
God-fearing lesbian. So you learn not to yearn and you
Take it on the chin again.

Here's what I find about compromise-Don't do it if it
Hurts inside, cause either way you're screwed, eventually
You'll find. You may as well feel good; you may as well
Have some pride.
Come August we'll go to Cherokee and hear Loretta do
Her thing. Pack it into the Indian casino and make the
Hillbilly scene, kick up our heels and join in.

Are you my ally or my enemy? Do you have
Self-loathing or empathy?
( hmmm...that's the crux of the whole thing...YOU are NOT the one with a problem, Kelli, the overt transphobes and complacent "allies" are) Can you keep me in your prayers?
Sister, can you keep me in there somewhere? And
Sister if you ain't go nothing good to say: don't say
Nothing at all.

Things like this make me want to break windows, scream until my lungs burn, kick and punch and claw and burn down a gov't building and cry no not cry sob in that way you do when you are home alone at 3am just you and memories and thoughts you suddenly can no longer keep at bay, in that way no one else is ever supposed to witness because it is too authentic and people don't want to see authenticity and reality, b/c it reminds them of the pain they cause and the pain they feel & makes it harder for them to keep lying to themselves and everyone else.

Everything's fine. THAT LIE.

If you just pretend you don't see the devastation then maybe it isn't there.

Ok, clearly bedtime for me, lol.
I'm having thoughts of getting people to occupy bathrooms, chaining ourselves to the doors and refusing to let people in and whatnot.

I guess I just have that fiery Latino revolutionary spirit (or insanity) in my genes.

Goodnight Kelli.
