      California blooms as drought comes to an end - and so will our country once we "repeal and replace" the Trumpites.

      Californians are rejoicing, and so are many who appreciate the produce and rice that feeds the nation. The rains have given us a beauty we had lost sight of, not just on the desert but in the entire state.

      The beauty we are now encountering after the rains, is breathtaking - and reminds us of what we can see again in our country once we "repeal and replace" Trump. We can take our country back again if we just "make like the rains in California" and dump Trump, Bannon et al and then - as many of those as we can replace in the Congress in the midterms.

      Resist people - - rain on them! Then get out the mid term votes. We can have a beautiful country again.

      LAKE ELSINORE, California (Reuters) - Southern California's deserts and hillsides are ablaze with color after a wet winter spurred what scientists say is the biggest wildflower bloom in years.

      Golden California poppies, the state's flower, blanket hillsides along busy high-desert roads and freeways around Lake Elsinore in Riverside County. At Anza-Borrego Desert State Park in San Diego County, the desert blooms with purple Canterbury Bells, red Monkey Flower, white Desert Lily and more poppies.

      "Plentiful rains in December, January and February have encouraged the development of a spectacular showing of annual plants in the flower fields north of town, along trails in western canyons, and even in the badlands," naturalists wrote on Anza-Borrego's website.

      Before the state's devastating five-year drought, Southern California families often made an annual trek to see wildflowers at Anza-Borrego and other destinations - some as close as a freeway exit in the high desert. Now that storms have replenished dry desert land, the tradition has returned in force.

      So many people are visiting Anza-Borrego, the state's largest park, that officials on Tuesday warned of traffic jams and urged flower-lovers to bring plenty of water to avoid dehydration in the hot, dry weather expected this week.

      On the steep hillsides of Walker Canyon in Lake Elsinore, people snapped pictures of wildflowers and gathered blooms as they strolled through the gently waving sea of color. Children played and dogs romped through the high stands of poppies as traffic whizzed by on the freeway below.

              Last week the American people stood up for what they believed in, and won. We were finally given a glimpse of the "new" healthcare plan that was devised by Paul Ryan and was designed to save us " a lot" of money and

              most of us saw a scam and we acted on it. Our "President", Congress, hell, probably even the dog were all for it

              but the American" people were not fooled and WE acted together.

              This was only a major battle in this war of us against them but it was perhaps a turning point. Now we may be able to work towards a health plan that works for all of America. More important then that is that we the people worked together to overturn a plan that was being rammed down our throats by this administration and

              Congress. Now if we can just figure out what it is that WE want (and ignore both political parties) perhaps we can get back on the right road.

                  OK...so NOW we have the truth...what WE in the trans community have known from jumo street...and which nobody would believe us.

                  This REALLY IS about "getting to still discriminate."

                  Don't be fooled by all these supposed "compromise" bills to repeal HB-2 that are floating around...the only compromise being offered is that trans people compromise all rights to privacy, dignity, and safety forever.

                  Berger and Moore...they want the stigma of HB-2 to be removed from our great state...but in such a way that allows them to continue too "get" to discrimminate. They really WANT TO. Make no mistake about this.

                  This IS NOT about "protecting women and girls" this is NOT about anything other than a desire on their part to marginalize and dehumanize a small mmisunderstood and often hated minority ... BECAUSE THEY CAN.

                  Thankfully, Governor Cooper and the Democrats in the NCGA can see through this.

                  There ARE viable compromises out there...but the NCGOP leadership wants no part of them.

                  For example, I have spoken at length with NC Sen. Jim Davis, who has even begun reading books to learn and understannd trannsgender people...I commend him for this. I have been building a relationship with his office, his wonderful and friendly L.A., Kaye...and the Senator himself.

                  Yes, they ARE Reublicans. They have never been anything but gracious with me, and we have talked several times about ways we can address concerns some of them may have (without debating whether or not those concerns were actually reasonable...the point is, the concerns are reasonabke to those who have them)

                  Whatever else, Davis is NOT one of the haters like Moore and Berger and Presnell...who want to dehumanize an entire segment of the state's citizenry. It is eventually, through relationships we build, with good hearted people like Sen. Davis...that we can achieve real cloture in this state.

                  The final solution, likely will not be everything we trans would want...and likely will be more than the haters and bigots want. But we are not going to give up, until our basic safety, dignity, humanity and privacy is as valued as any other law-abiding citizen.

                  I am, in fact, working on other things to help bring this about. More on this later.

                      [I]t is notable that the tattooing occurs prominently around the mouth, which may refer, as it does in Classic Maya society, to the breath of life or the capacity of polished speech of these individuals.


                      "For more than 1,000 years, a culture flourished in what are now the western Mexican states of Jalisco, Nayarit, and parts of Colima. Most of what we know about the culture comes from artifacts taken from shaft tombs—usually by tomb raiders—including examples of heavily tattooed hollow ceramic figurines. Some scholars believe the figurines depict gods, while Christopher Beekman of the University of Colorado Denver suspects that they may in fact represent the people with whom they were buried. Certainly the designs were intended to communicate identity and status, particularly considering that the figurines appear to have been used in ceremonial contexts, and also set up in residential areas to be seen and visited. According to Beekman, it is notable that the tattooing occurs prominently around the mouth, which may refer, as it does in Classic Maya society, to the breath of life or the capacity of polished speech of these individuals."
