Target Department Stores have come under fire for their transgender bathroom policy.  Per their “inclusiveness” policy, any person that identifies as the opposite gender is allowed to use the restroom of their choice, i.e., a man that identifies as a woman can use the women’s restroom.

Does anyone else see a problem with this?

I’m just waiting for some pervert to dress up as a woman, go into the women’s restroom, and sexually assault a woman/teen/child.  Then the lawsuits will fly and everything gets muddled more than it is.  Lost will be the rights of the victim along with the injuries (physical and emotional) that they received.

At this point in time, Target has received over 1,000,000 notices from people that will not shop at Target over this policy.  Target has not budged in their position.  Considering that Target Canada has declared bankruptcy, it doesn’t make business sense in losing over a million plus customers for accommodating roughly 0.3% of the population.  A smart company would have three restrooms – one for men, one for women, and one for the gender-confused (i.e., unisex).  But such is the social justice movement of the corporate world and politics of the day.

Between this new policy and being anti-gun, Target will not be getting the hard-earned dollars of my wife and I.

The Liberals have been characterizing conservatives and Republicans as having a “war on women.”  Really?

Somehow, with pushing the transgender policy that Target has adopted, I would think that these policies have put more women in physical danger than any of the supposed anti-women proposals from the conservatives.

I read that the Bernie Sanders campaign may be in financial trouble as they are letting people go.  Hmm…looks like even Socialists eventually run out of money…

The political race is turning into a circus-themed casino.  Instead of presenting the most qualified people for the highest office of the country, we have clowns to the left and jokers to the right…

To stay sane in this crazy world of ours, we have to be a little insane ourselves…

Political correctness running rampant leads to the idiotic rantings of the faculty and their sycophant snowflakes on various college campuses.  “Safe spaces,” “code words” and “trigger warnings” are a disservice to the educational process of our young adults.  These people must learn that there are other opinions that run counter to the opinions of themselves.  Lost is the critical thinking that ensures a well-rounded education.  Open minds lead to sharing of ideas, and everyone benefits.

“It’s about how to study, cooperate, listen carefully, think critically and resolve conflicts through reason. Those are the most important skills in the working world, and it’s why colleges have always exposed students to challenging and uncomfortable ideas.” – former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Commencement Speech, University of Michigan, 2016

That’s all for now.  Note that the posting over the next few months will be slowing down somewhat due to weather and much needed time off.  There will be posts, just not on a weekly basis – Tom Roland
