Politically Correct Is For The Birds
Some corporations and "celebrities" have a problem with newly passed North Carolina restroom laws requiring students to use public restrooms based on their biological sex and not "gender neutral". Huh? Do these morons have children or wives?
Everyone should have the choice to be what they want to be, but their rights stop when they encroach upon my rights. While I can see that these people would rightfully be intimidated entering a restroom in which they don't feel comfortable, this problem is not resolved by "group bathrooms".
Be that as it may, this legislation stopped a plethora of future complaints by other "affected parties" demanding rights. I can't wait to see the next complainers added to the growing list. Will the "Goat Humpers of America" demand entry for their loved ones? Where does this crap stop?
The North Carolina legislature passed a sweeping bill overturning gay and transgender protections at the local level and requiring students to use public restrooms that correspond to their sex.
State lawmakers pushed the measure in response to a nondiscrimination ordinance adopted in the city of Charlotte that, among other things, allowed people to use the bathroom that matched with their gender identity.
Legislators said immediate action was necessary to protect children and women from sexual predators who might pose as transgender to gain access to women’s restrooms.
As for corporations and celebrities sticking their noses into what shouldn't concern them, maybe they will understand when, in retribution, the public boycotts corporate products and shuns the celebrities at the box office or music venues.
This "politically correct" societal problem needs to be addressed and dismissed.....

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: My thanks to my friend Mike for his contribution to today's stories.
A father told his three sons when he sent them to the university, "I feel it is my duty to provide you with the best education possible and you do not owe me anything for providing that. However, I want you to appreciate it. As a token, I want each of you to put $1,000 into my coffin when I die." And so it happened.
His sons became a doctor, a lawyer and a financial planner, each very successful financially. When their father’s time had come and they saw their father in the coffin, they remembered his wish.
First, it was the doctor who put 10 $100 bills onto the chest of the deceased. Then, came the financial planner, who also put $1,000 there. Finally, it was the lawyer's turn.
He reached into his jacket pocket, took out his checkbook, wrote a check for $3,000, put it into his father's coffin, and took the $2,000 cash.
He later went on to become a member of Congress.....
A couple drove several miles down a country road, not saying a word. An earlier discussion had led to an argument and neither wanted to concede their position.
As they passed a barnyard of mules and pigs, the wife sarcastically asked, "Relatives of yours?" The husband replied, "Yep, In-laws."
That's it for today, my little conch fritters. Remember, no matter how hard you try, you'll never run out of bad ideas. I'm heading over to AREA 51 for happy hour.
