Donald Trump tweeting: “After consulting my generals, I’m banning transgender troops from service!” He’s in the Commander-in-Chief square at the top of an organizational chart showing [first row] General Confusion, General Disarray, General Disappointment, General Anxiety, General Ignorance, [second row] General Anarchy, General Contempt, General Bewilderment, General Hostility, General Lunacy, General Stupidity, [third row] General Anesthesia, General Tso’s, General Relativity, General Mills, General Hospital, General Quarters, General Motors, [fourth row] General Vicinity, Gen. Lee, Gen. Store, GE, Surgeon Gen., Gen. Public, Dollar Gen., Gen. Population, Gen. Contra., Gen. Pract. [and other rows of tiny boxes]

"If this doesn't play well, you can decide who goes next."

tRump himself! And Pence, and Ryan, and the rest of the Rethuglicans whose voter suppression succeeded so well!

Joan, thanks for posting the Al Jazeera voting rights timeline.  Very interesting!  I didn't know there were so many nuanced changes back and forth through the years.

Who got the right to vote when? A history of voting rights in America.

Who are citizens? In the early days, only whilte, male, Protestant, land owning people were citizens. 
1868 Former slaves granted citizenship
1876 Indigenous people cannot vote
1882 Asians cannnot be citizens
1887 Grants citizenship to Native Americans who give up their tribal affiliations.
1920 Right to vote extended to women
1947 Legal barriers to Native American voting removed
1952 People with Asian ancestry can vote
1961 Citizens of Washington, DC can vote
1963 Voting rights as civil rights
1964 No tax required to vote
1965 Voting Rights Act passed
1971 Voting age lowered to 18
2013 Part of Voting Rights Act struck down

If I recall correctly, recent polling shows that a majority supports protections for LGBTQ persons.  Honestly, I think Donald tRump couldn't care one way or the other .  The problem with him is that the evangelical fundamentalists have a constant message pipeline to his ear and he's being highly influenced by their lies.  His recent Twitter statement about transgender people in the military smacks of their anti-gay talking points.  And of course having Jeff Sessions and Mike Pence cheering him on adds to the destruction of our rights.
