    I ask because you seem to be in a time warp of the future.
    No time warp here - you are making incorrect assumptions. I said I received my mail-in ballot, NOT that I was voting in the presidential election in June. It is my primary ballot and I will be doing my share to get him and others gone by VOTING - starting now... in June.

    I thought the provisions in question, namely the use of 'gender identity' as a basis of discrimination, never went into effect due to a court ruling in 2016. If that's correct then the change in question now brings federal policy into line with court rulings.

    That understanding seems to be confirmed in the HHS.GOV link you provided although the NPR link seems to blame the current administration even though the provisions were effectively eliminated by federal courts during the previous administration. I wonder why they would leave the two federal court rulings in 2016 part out? Weird huh?

    There seems to be a lot of that going on these days, though it's hardly ever acknowledged.

    Thankfully, there were a couple of good guys without guns in the crowd who nipped his plans in the bud.

    I understand that one of the good guys was an Army veteran who used the attacker’s gun to bludgeon him.

    I was pleased to learn this, as a USAF firearms instructor once advised me that my most effective use of an M-16 would be as a club.

    “Stochastic terrorism” is the new free-speech bludgeoning tool adopted by the left. I just learned it myself in a Scientific American opinion piece (oddly, not scientific at all ) about Christopher Rulo and his CRT awareness reporting.

    Can you inform the ignorant? In what context is it being used? What does it mean?

    Okay---I'm all for those alphabet people having zackly the same limited rights and protections I have. Yup. But yeah---for us and the Pols in D.C. to be squabbling about the incident in Doo Doo Town or wherever, is micro-managing the situation. They caught the guy, now electrocute him, and get it over with. Hope that helps you some. Thankk Mee.
