Oregon Age of Consent - 15 yrs - for Transexuals

There are things that I can be tolerant about - believe it or not. I don't care if two consenting adults bugger themselves silly. I have absolutely no tolerance for situations where the state encourages this type of conduct when it comes to children.
(Fox News) The list of things 15-year-olds are not legally allowed to do in Oregon is long: Drive, smoke, donate blood, get a tattoo -- even go to a tanning bed.

But, under a first-in-the-nation policy quietly enacted in January that many parents are only now finding out about, 15-year-olds are now allowed to get a sex-change operation. Many residents are stunned to learn they can do it without parental notification -- and the state will even pay for it through its Medicaid program, the Oregon Health Plan.
In a statement, Oregon Health Authority spokeswoman Susan Wickstrom explained it this way: "Age of medical consent varies by state. Oregon law -- which applies to both Medicaid and non-Medicaid Oregonians -- states that the age of medical consent is 15."

While 15 is the medical age of consent in the state, the decision to cover sex-change operations specifically was made by the Health Evidence Review Commission (HERC).

Members are appointed by the governor and paid by the state of Oregon. With no public debate, HERC changed its policy to include cross-sex hormone therapy, puberty-suppressing drugs and gender-reassignment surgery as covered treatments for people with gender dysphoria, formally known as gender identity disorder.
The nation is caught up in a celebration of sodomy. I understand that. The President of the United States painted the White House with rainbow light in affirmation of that celebration. The Supreme Court seems to think that there is a Constitutional right involved with this.

There needs to be a line drawn, and government funded transgender operations on children who are fifteen years old - without so much as parental consent, crosses that line. I'm sure that the people of Oregon are so proud of this - it's so progressive. I don't live in Oregon but I do believe that states have the right to make decisions regarding their own people. However when it comes to children and the perversion of transgender surgery, how can anyone condone this?

People responsible for enacting this law have the hearts of beasts, not humans. They need to be held accountable and treated the way one would deal with a rabid dog.

Casting Chicken Bones

File this rant under global warming, global cooling, climate change and climate disruption (for you simpletons, it's the weather). Combating the weather is a primary mission of the US Military under the Obama regime. NOAA is making predictions for the rest of this year and into the spring of 2016. These predictions are often called casting and reading chicken bones.

El Nino has an 85 percent chance of lasting through winter 2015-2016, according to an updated forecast released on Thursday by the National Oceanic Atmospheric Adminisration (NOAA). NOAA also reported that there is a greater than 90 percent chance of El Nino lasting through the fall.
El Nino is an anomalous, yet periodic, warming of the central and eastern equatorial Pacific Ocean. For reasons still not well understood, every 2-7 years, this patch of ocean warms for six to 18 months.
The declaration that El Nino is likely to last through winter is important for the United States since precipitation and temperature impacts from a moderate-to-strong El Nino are typically most noticeable during the cold season. 

For Southern California, it means lots of rain. Some of that rain will be captured in reservoirs, but most of it will run off into the ocean. Rich idiots, liberals all, who have built hillside homes on stilts will see those homes washed off into the ocean too. They will ask the government for aid because of the scourge of global warming (weather). Republicans will cave for fear of being seen as unfeeling. After things dry off, the progressive home owners will build new homes on stilts, which will inevitably be destroyed in ensuing El Ninos. 

Residents of the western states may remember the flooding that struck California during the strong 1997-98 El Nino. In February 1998, a series of storms caused half a billion dollars in damage and killed 17 people in California. Personally, I had a 27' Sea Ray (boat) destroyed in the climate disruption (global warming/weather). I had to file a lawsuit against my insurance company. They lost.

Anticipate that the Democratic Party will propose taxes that will be used to combat the weather - but not one thin dime will be used to create reservoirs to solve the drought problem that is cyclical in SoCal and has been cyclical since the last ice age (global cooling gone wild), about 10,000 years ago.

Oh, and while I'm on a rant:
