Andrew Jones was top of his class and scheduled to deliver a commencement address, but he had a beard. He had been told on more than one occasion that he would have to shave the beard according to school policy. He refused and he was denied the opportunity to speak or march. He challenged the rule. Some are saying the school is at fault, but what do you think? Are rules made to be broken? Share your thoughts.

We live in a world where everyone is encouraged to be their authentic self. If you believe you are a woman then you are free to live your truth even if your anatomy is not in agreement with your true beliefs. Mainstream society might not agree with you, but there are laws on the book to protect and in some cases by presidential proclamation you are protected. It is odd that we adamant about protecting the lives of some, but those who oppose them are not respected, but vilified for not supporting them. No one should have to preface their statement by saying “I am not a bigot” to pose an alternative opinion. So I’ll say it, “I am not a bigot”, but I have a problem with the bathroom policy. We see people commit dastardly acts everyday. Not saying members of the trans community would do these things, but when you swing the door open widely you can not be sure of who will get past the barrier. I’ve been writing this blog for 8 years and I have been an loyal supported of President Obama, but that support does not render me silent. This is a policy that I do not affirm. Share your thoughts.

It is almost comical to watch the Republicans come to terms with Donald Trump as the GOP nominee. Trump reminds me of that boyfriend your best friend had who everyone hated. He talked too much, he bragged too much, he often insulted your friend. She would often complain to you about him. She openly questioned if he was actually the one. You listened and you offered insight and you agreed that he was not the one, but now she has chosen to marry this guy and you are left shaking your head. So do you keep criticizing the guy? No it is time to stop and accept the change. No you don’t have to embrace it but you do have to accept it. Trump is the nominee. he is no longer the boyfriend on the fringes he is no simply the man.

1.’We can’t all of a sudden get down on our knees and turn everything over to the leadership of the blacks. I believe in white supremacy until the blacks are educated to a point of responsibility. I don’t believe in giving authority and positions of leadership and judgment to irresponsible people.’
2.’I don’t feel we did wrong in taking this great country away from them, if that’s what you’re asking. Our so-called stealing of this country from them was just a matter of survival. There were great numbers of people who needed new land, and the Indians were selfishly trying to keep it for themselves.’
3.’When you allow unlawful acts to go unpunished, you’re moving toward a government of men rather than a government of law; you’re moving toward anarchy. And that’s exactly what we’re doing. We allow dirty loudmouths to publicly call policemen pigs; we let a fella like William Kunstler make a speech to the Black Panthers saying that the ghetto is theirs, and that if police come into it, they have a right to shoot them. Why is that dirty, no-good son of a bitch allowed to practice law?’
4.’I don’t feel guilty about the fact that five or 10 generations ago these people were slaves. Now, I’m not condoning slavery. It’s just a fact of life, like the kid who gets infantile paralysis and has to wear braces so he can’t play football with the rest of us.’
5.’The academic community has developed certain tests that determine whether the blacks are sufficiently equipped scholastically. But some blacks have tried to force the issue and enter college when they haven’t passed the tests and don’t have the requisite background.’
