Bloviating Zeppelin: Another Reason Leftism Should Be Catalogued As A Mental Disease In The DSM IV:

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Another Reason Leftism Should Be Catalogued As A Mental Disease In The DSM IV:

[For general reference, the current DSM-IV is here.]

In the midst of the worst fiscal situations encountered in decades regarding numerous state, city and county budgets and, specifically, Fornicalia city and county budgets -- much less the entire state of Fornicalia itself -- the City of Berkeley is deciding:

Berkeley Set To Offer Sex-Change Employee Benefits

While other cities are slashing employee benefits, Berkeley is slated to add one more: paying for sex-change operations.

The City Council is poised to vote tonight to set aside $20,000 annually for city workers' gender-reassignment surgery. The procedure is not covered by the city's two health insurance providers, Kaiser and Health Net.

"We offer all kinds of benefits to our employees. This brings our benefits in line with what's just and fair for the transgender community," said City Councilman Darryl Moore, who originally proposed the idea in 2007.

The benefit would allow employees to collect the money before the operation. To receive the payout, employees would have to have lived as the opposite sex for at least one year and undergone hormone therapy. They also would have to have worked for the city at least a year.

The city decided to provide payment to employees directly.

"I support the staff's solution here," City Councilman Gordon Wozniak said. "It's not a lot of money to set aside for something that's rarely going to happen."

The city has about 1,500 employees, and at least a few have recently inquired about sex-reassignment surgery, Moore said.

And to think that, years ago, I actually applied and tested to become a City of Berkeley police officer. I came out number two in rank one. I considered working for Berkeley because you could -- zounds! -- wear a beard as a cop. I thought that was so cool! Yes, I was that shallow. My Liberal Days.

When will it actually stop, ladies and gentlemen?

Berkeley long ago became an actual parody of itself. And then a parody upon parody. Boalt Hall. There is a reason it became known nationally, first in jest, then straight-faced (dare I utilize that judgmental word "straight" here?): Berserk-eley.

Berkeley is still berserk -- and now, clearly, beyond.

They don't get it. Leftists don't get it. Liberals don't get it.

In the face of such obvious reality, these Moonbats are still critically examining their navels. Only the truly insane do this. They do the same thing again and again and again expecting different results.

Which is why Fornicalia is about to be driven directly into the ground.

If CA is going to pay for sex-change operations, what coverage for true illnesses is CA cutting back on?

Now, now, BZ. Don't you know that 'transgender' people have a medical condition and deserve the same sort of help as anyone else?

AOW: tons.

NFO: now it's deadly serious instead of being nonsensical.

WSF: pretty much. Leftists absolutely do NOT get it. What else can it be but some derivative of the DSM?

CJ: at the expense of people who need critical care instead of confused people who don't.

Just noting your lede picture....

A nuclear free zone- does that mean you can't get X-rays in Berkeley, or certain cancer treatments as well?

KurtP: first, thanks for visiting and thanks for taking the time to comment. You make an excellent point: I guess there wouldn't, therefore, be ANY hospitals in Berkeley, or any Chiropractors in Berkeley, or any military repair depots -- would there?

My comment was tongue-in-cheek, btw. It is idiotic but it was one of the arguments I heard for the move.

The loons are taking over.

Ahhh, berserkly...The nucleus of tolerance, except for military recruiters. It's ok to bash in the windows and skulls of military folks in the name of tolerance and progress...That place just needs to be paved over.
