This is going to be a short but pithy Frenetic Friday tonight so let’s not waste a minute.
In politics/culture wars we have a new
decree directive from our current ruler:
The Obama administration is planning to issue a sweeping directive telling every public school district in the country to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms that match their gender identity.
Let me quote Denny Burk here:
Just to be clear what this means. The Obama administration is announcing its intent to coerce through force of law every public school to accept this. He expects your local school to allow boys to use bathroom and shower facilities with girls and vice versa. So long as the child’s parents are willing to go along with their child’s new identity, the school has to let students into the bathroom and locker room of the opposite sex
This directive is jaw-dropping. The Obama administration doesn’t care whether the local or state school system supports such a move. It doesn’t care whether parents want male students showering with the female students or vice versa. President Obama’s letter…
…requires schools to provide transgender students equal access to educational programs and activities even in circumstances in which other students, parents, or community members raise objections or concerns.
The Obama administration is saying that every public school must accept the new rules or face the music. It has decided that anyone (even parents!) who refuses the new rules will be guilty of invidious “discrimination.”<source>
decree directive effectively bypasses any rule of law that originated in the constitution or what our founders intended. And frankly I doubt greatly that our founders wanted was for gender disillusioned men to share a public bathroom with a woman.
And here is something to think about:

Think about it.
And speaking of Politics here is a piece by Thabiti Anyabwile:
A vote to check unpredictable evil with predictable
I disagree with his conclusions but I suggest you read the article and make up your own mind.
And now for a little humor.
Meet the president-dictator of a micro-nation inside the United States
I love what he said about taxes and the roads.
And now a robot:
Now here is what I am afraid of some televangelist hustler is going to see this and think hey what a great idea I can get the faithful to buy one of these and I’ll program it with my teaching. Can’t you just see this robot in a Benny Hinn silver suit?
