Prime Minister James Hacker: When Cholera killed 30,000 in 1833 we got the Public Health act. When Smog killed 2,500 people in 1952 we got the Clean Air Act., When a commercial drug kills half a dozen people we get it withdrawn from sale. Smoking kills 100,000 people a year and what do we get?

Sir Humphry Appleby: Four Billion Pounds a year, 25,000 jobs in the tobacco industry, a flourishing cigarette export business helping our balance of trade, 250,000 jobs related to tobacco, Newsagents, packaging, transport…

Prediction: If You Think the Cigarette Lawsuits & Settlements Were Something Wait Till the Transgender Suits Against Children’s Hospitals Start Coming

Gov. Bill Lee Calls For Investigation Of Vanderbilt’s Pediatric Transgender Clinic Following Matt Walsh Revelation.

Some details from the Daily wire story:

Lee’s comments follow a detailed thread from Daily Wire host and author Matt Walsh on the medical center. In one of the video’s shared by Walsh, VUMC Clinic for Transgender Health’s Dr. Shayne Sebold Taylor admitted, “These surgeries are labor intensive, they require  a lot of follow-ups, they require a lot of our time, and they make money,” she emphasized. “They make money for the hospital.”

And some of the tweets

All I can think of is the Godfather where Don Corleone gives his objections to his own family entering the drug trade:

Don Corleone: I said that I would see you because I had heard that you were a serious man, to be treated with respect. But I must say no to you and let me give you my reasons. It’s true I have a lot of friends in politics, but they wouldn’t be so friendly if they knew my business was drugs instead of gambling which they consider a harmless vice. But drugs, that’s a dirty business.

Sollozzo: No, Don Corleone…

Don Corleone: It makes no difference, it don’t make any difference to me what a man does for a living, you understand. But your business is a little dangerous.

The Godfather 1972

It was because of this decision not to play along that Don Corleone was shot and that the compromise than ended the ensuing gang war was imposed that allowed the drug trade:

Emilio Barzini: A refusal is not the act of a friend. If Don Corleone had all the judges, and the politicians in New York, then he must share them, or let us others use them. He must let us draw the water from the well. Certainly he can present a bill for such services; after all… we are not Communists.

In Vanderbilt’s remake of the Godfather Dr. Ellen Clayton plays the role of Barzini

I suspect this production is and has been played out at many pediatric medical centers all across the country with an army of Sollozzos ready to come down on any who objected to this new revenue stream supported by an army of Barzinis ready to insist that for the good of all those who will profit financially from the Transgender push those medical professional who took their vow to “Do no harm” seriously compromise their souls.
