Research Group Gets $1.35 Million Grant to Study Transgenders in the Military
The Palm Center, the Chicago-based research institute that helped persuade Congress and the Department of Defense that openly homosexual and lesbian men and women should be able to serve in the nation's military services, has received a $1.35 million grant to study issues related to the integrating of transgender persons into the armed forces.
The center's Transgender Military Initiative has commissioned 16 scholars to conduct 11 studies over the next three years to determine "whether and how the U.S. armed forces could include transgender troops without undermining readiness," according to a report published Tuesday on the news site, BuzzFeed. The studies, funded by the Tawani Foundation, are to cover a variety of issues, including privacy concerns, medical accommodations, the experiences of foreign militaries, and recreational activities....
My question is where does all of this money magically come from when this government is always crying poverty? How is it that we always have plenty for studies such as this, plenty for pork barrel spending, and so much that we can send billions to other countrys and forgive the debts of others? We already send the thieves in Washington 1/2 of our hard earned money by force, and why? So they can mismanage it, go on lavish vacations, have posh dinner parties for their friends, and the rest off to our sworn enemies.
