Democrats of the Desert statement on Donald Trump's ban on transgenders in the military

The Democrats of the Desert organization strongly disagrees with Donald Trump's announced ban on transgender persons serving in the military. Discrimination of any kind toward human beings is unacceptable, and must be opposed with vigor. The President can now add bigot to his many negative personality disorders. Transgender folks now and who next ? Gays and lesbians, women, persons with certain disabilities who can and do function very well otherwise? DOD urges all folks with any dignity and compassion to appeal this horrible decision to Congressman Dr. Raul Ruiz and Senators Feinstein and Harris, and to contact the White House directly. Rob Westwood President, Democrats of the Desert 760

Climate Change PS Alert...

Palm Springs City Council is voting on an ordinance to give YOU a choice on how much renewable energy power YOU want. It’s called Community Choice Aggregation (CCA). It’s like a co-op where multiple communities band together to buy renewable energy through SCE. So, instead of SCE buying energy from natural gas plants, they would buy our energy from wind and solar farms. For more information Once the CCA is approved and implemented, your electricity would still be delivered by SCE but YOU will have control over whether you want 50% or 100% renewable energy.
