Why was valedictorian Andrew Jones denied the right to march at his graduation?


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.

What do you think about President Obama’s bathroom policy?

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.

Is Donald Trump the bad boyfriend your friend actually marries?

dump trump

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.

Laremy Tunsil is the definition of a cautionary tale

Laremy Tunsil is now a Miami Dolphin. He went 13th in the NFL draft. He had hopes of going earlier, but his hopes were dashed when shortly before the draft someone posted a video of him with a gas mask bong. He looked like he was feeling no pain and having a good time. He like so many people chronicle all aspects of their lives and share their exploits with their friends, but what happens when friends become enemies? They post something that they know will hurt you at a time that can change the course of your life…just ask Laremy Tunsil.

Ted Cruz just gave Carly Fiorina her ticket on the Titanic

Is Ted Cruz living in a parallel universe? He has to be and in that world he is inches away from winning the GOP nomination for the presidency, but here in the real world he is losing, losing badly. So to see him anointing a running mate today is bizarre. Maybe he is not the only one that resides in this other world. Carly Fiorina is a card carrying citizen of that world. If she was not she would not be jumping on board the Cruz train. At what point does a candidate accept the real world reality that this is not his season. Obviously, Cruz is not there yet he still sees a path but it is over. He is a passenger on the Titanic and today he invited a buddy to join him.
