AND

You agree to NOT hold Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd. (makers of the forum software), uspoliticsonline.com, sites affiliated with uspoliticsonline.com, its administrators, its moderators, others associated with its operation, and its owners liable for any and all of the following (in whole or in part):

You are prohibited from using your real name on these forums, either as your username or in posts / PMs you write.

FORUM RULES, IN ADDITION TO THE DISCLAIMER

1. These rules apply to all sections of USPOL, including public and private forums, blogs, and visitor messages.

2. You cannot attack and/or personally insult someone. You cannot bait other forum members; this includes referring to posters by derogatory terms. Please, remain courteous and respectful to all forum members at all times. You agree to take responsibility for reporting such posts when you come across them. Please, use the ignore feature if need be. Any member who intentionally and continually posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response, or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion, may be regarded as a troll by staff, and have their account suspended or banned.

3. You cannot harass (sexually or otherwise) other members. This includes malicious, slanderous, or defamatory comments. If you are not sure if something you write is inappropriate or not then don't say it. Err on the side of caution.

4. Copying and Pasting Articles, and Starting New Threads. You cannot simply cut and paste in posts or when starting threads. You MUST provide the identifying information (source, author, date, and URL). You must also offer some original thoughts along with the cut and paste. You may copy and paste an excerpt or series of excerpts from the article. Excerpts really shouldnt be more then a paragraph or two. Furthermore, if you use images or other copyrighted material in your posts or signature you must have permission of the copyright holder unless you know for a fact that the image is in the public domain. In addition:
a. It must include the identifying information; e.g., where available, the author, the publication, the date, the URL.
b. The member must offer some context, including: How did you hear of this article? What is your opinion? Why is it important to you? Why should it be important to forum readers? The more context you provide, the more you assist others in gauging the excerpted information's significance.
c. You may copy and paste an excerpt or series of excerpts, not the whole thing or even the majority of the whole thing to encourage people to read the entire article.

A violation of any of the above will result in the deletion or closing of the post or thread and could earn you a warning or suspension. If you have any questions concering any of the above please PM a moderator and we will be happy to clarify.

5. You cannot post the same thing in multiple forums. You must not open similar threads about the same or a similar topic. You cannot spam the board or send unsolicited messages to members via PM, email or any other means.

6. Do not post off-topic. You cannot derail a thread with off topic posts.

7. You cannot shout in posts. This includes posting in all CAPS, bold, lIkE tHiS, and extra large font. Posts should also be one color, although you may use an additional color for highlighting ideas you wish to address.

8. You may not alter quotes in a way that misrepresents what was originally said.

9. Multiple accounts are not allowed. If you are found to have more than one account all accounts will be permanently terminated.

10. You cannot have a user name, avatar, signature, or post images that are deliberately offensive. That includes the display of overly explicit or graphic images that may not be suitable for minors.

11. Signatures can not have more than three lines of text, with a font size no larger than "4", and no more than two font colors. Images in signatures cannot be any larger than 800 pixels wide x 200 pixels tall. Animated images are not allowed.

12. You are prohibited from taking any action to disturb the use of the services by others, distribute material that contains viruses, spyware or any other malicious code or harmful programs. This includes interfering with the working of the network, attempts to gain unauthorized access to a service or other computer systems that are part of the site or any other site, by use of the available services.

13. Discussion of moderation actions in public and/or private forums is not permitted. Moderation actions include warnings, suspensions and the editing or deletion of posts. If a member has a concern about a moderation action, he or she is invited to address it with the board staff via Private Message. This rule exists to protect the privacy of all posters with regards to disciplinary action. The moderator team will never publicly discuss the warnings/suspensions of any posters, and we ask that you return the favor, whether about yourself or another poster. Posting about moderation actions in the public forums constitutes a violation. You are free to discuss a moderation action via Private Message with the moderator involved, but you may not harass or abuse the moderators (as already specified in the forum rules). In practical terms, this means that once a moderator tells you his or her decision is final, no further PMs about that moderation action are permitted. If you have a concern about a moderation action, you are free to appeal to a Forum Administrator via Private Message. You may only discuss moderator activities or discussion of moderation with staff member if you chose to private message and are not under any circumstances allowed to use the PM function to forward or promote moderator discussion in regards to specific forum action, amongst other regular members. Administrators do reserve the right to read said PMs and may do so ; if that results in discovery of messaging between posters of such moderator discussion then it will lead to the same violation being received for discussing said moderator actions on the forum. If you receive a message to the effect of having been given moderator information, please report it to a member of staff. Engaging back in that discussion with the original violator will earn you just as stiff a sanction.

14. Do not ignore moderators or administrators. Do not repost something a moderator or administrator has deleted. You cannot have moderators or administrators on your ignore list.

15. Only post in English. Short passages in foreign languages may be acceptable if its use seems helpful for the ongoing discussion and when there is no indication of a potential violation of the forum rules. Always provide a translation into English in such cases. In case of doubt, the incident will be regarded as a violation, no matter of the actual meaning of the foreign language text.

16. The use of words/comments etc. written by other posters, without approval of the poster in your personal signature is not allowed nor are references, by name, to other posters allowed.

17. Please pay attention to announcements by Forum staff that will be found in the "Welcome! / News & Announcements" forum from time to time.

18. Use of "liar", "lies", "lying", etc. Accusing someone of being a "liar" or similar accusations towards other posters will generally be regarded as implying an insult and therewith as a violation of the forum rules. "I question the validity of your statement because...", "That's not the truth" or "you are wrong about that" are sufficient for any decent discussion if you want to disagree with somebody's assertions.

19. Thread opening restriction for new members. In order to control SPAM, new members must have moderator approval to start their own threads.

20. Thread titles must relate to the discussion within. Do not make misleading titles, or titles such as "Guess what..." or "You'll never believe this...". Members need to be able to identify the general gist of the thread via the title. Profanity in thread titles is not permitted.

21. Forum members are instructed to use forum tools and abilities for their intended purposes and no other. If members identify a forum glitch or weakness of any kind that allows you to see or do something you know you shouldn't, please report it. Being aware of any unintended access to the Forum and failing to take appropriate steps to notify staff of said access issues, will create a presumption of seeking to take advantage of the issue, will result in either account suspension, or banishment.

22. Any link to a site that contains graphic content, must contain a warning describing what a person might reasonably expect to view if they click on said link. No graphic pictures are to be posted on the Forum.

23. Threats or advocations of violence toward a public figure, or member of the Forum, will not be tolerated. Conversation about revolution or the like is not prohibited by this rule; directly calling for violence is, eg It's time to kill every <redacted> that voted for the bill, is not permitted.

24. Accounts with no posts will be deleted after 30 days. Inactive accounts with low post histories may be deleted after one year.

25. Private forums are something offered to members that decide to contribute directly to this site via donations. These donations help immensely in keeping this site up and running. Private forums are designed to allow the contributing member discuss whatever he/she wants to and to have the power to direct that discussion in whatever way he/she chose. They were not designed nor are they intended for simply talking trash about members that don't have access to the forum. While the targeted members cannot see the forum or the comments, it creates a negative atmosphere that really isn't necessary. If you want to totally rip apart ideas, ideologies, political parties, etc. that is fine. We simply ask that you don't use the private forums as a means to attack other members that aren't privy to such comments. It is difficult enough to have a political discussion forum because the discussion of politics is inherently heated as people are so passionate about their beliefs...the ones that take the time to come to such a site in the first place at least. The idea of private forums is so people of similar political persuasions can discuss whatever they want without fear of being attacked. Nonetheless, we hope that a certain level of maturity would foster itself within such an arena and not simply lend itself to a bashing forum.

Private Forums are governed by all of the above Forum rules. In addition:
  • Private forums that essentially become abandoned homes will be subject to deletion, donation or reorganization. Just like elsewhere in life, clubs sometimes lose their vitality and purpose for a myriad of reasons. If it becomes clear that a private forum has clearly lost its vitality and nobody is going to really use it anymore, owners are advised to consider whether to reuse the forum for something new and productive rather than let them linger or notify the Administration that the forum should be rearranged for other purposes, closed, merged with other compatible private forums, donated to others for new purposes, etc. Do not be concerned that your forum must be a membership and post count race with others to avoid falling under this policy; the question is whether your forum has actual vitality instead of being 'brain dead.'
  • Additionally, private forums may only be owned by subscribed members in the Platinum or Diamond categories.
  • Should the owner of a private forum be banned, quit USPOL or otherwise abandon the forum the PF will be transferred to another owner or closed.
  • Propriety of private forums. Administration staff will determine the desirability of a proposed private forum and enact any conditions upon it to ensure its purpose is productive.
  • Any and all instances of sharing accounts by allowing someone else to log in under their own account so they can see into private forums for which they are otherwise not permitted to access, will be deemed violation of the double account rule and all caught doing so will be permanently banned.
  • Relaying private forum posts and information to other posters who are not members of the particular private forum for any negative or destructive purpose (eg mean-spirited gossip, fueling interpersonal disputes, etc), is not permitted, and will constitute a violation of the Forum rules.
  • For purposes of monitoring USPOL Terms of Service Administrative staff (not Moderators) will have access to Private Forums.
  • All Private Forums must have at least one active Administrator as a member for purposes of handling issues which cannot be addressed through moderation permissions.
  • Discussion of moderation activities is prohibited on the open site and is likewise prohibited in Private Forums.

26. The administrators and moderators reserve the right to edit and/or delete a post,and/or close a thread, and/or delete a thread at any time if of the opinion that the post is too obscene, inappropriate, or the discussion has run its course.

27. 'Back seat moderating' is not allowed. If you take issue with another poster's contribution to the forum, you're welcome to report any posts you think are out of line, but you should not bring it up publicly within the forum.

28. Images in posts (whether embedded or hot linked) must be reasonable in size. 800x800 should be considered a good rule of thumb. Excessively large images make it difficult for users on mobile devices to load pages. If necessary please simply link to very large images using the URL tags. In addition, the following images are not permitted (including, but not limited to pages with images or videos containing):
  • Strategically covered nudity
  • Sheer or see-through clothing
  • Lewd or provocative poses
  • Close-ups of breasts, buttocks, or crotches

29. Any solicitation or communication involving sports betting / gambling / online casinos / bookies and or internet based card or slot machine systems or sites will lead to all said content being physically removed from the site and server, and will lead to any and or all parties involved being permanently removed and banned from the site to the farthest extent possible. This includes any links to any form of bookmaker, casino, any type of game or match or event where money transfers on the outcome or link of any sort to wire act violations and or anything in violation of either the Internet Gambling Regulation, Consumer Protection, and Enforcement Act, Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006, or the Federal wire Act. This applies not only to the open forum but all and or any chat rooms, articles, private messages and or private forums. All content that violates this rule will be deleted, without notice.

CONSEQUENCES

Failure to comply with any of the forum rules may result in your posts being edited or deleted and/or your account being temporarily or permanently banned from the forums. U.S. Politics Online uses a warning system that generates an automated Private Message to members when they are in violation of Forum rules. The decision to issue a warning is left to the discretion of the moderator or administrator handling the violation. If a member does not agree with an action taken by a moderator, they can appeal to an administrator after seeking clarification from the moderator who issued the warning/infraction and appealing to them in the first instance. Members MAY NOT harass a moderator or administrator by sending excessive PMs when they are discussing an appeal.

Violations are assigned a point value. Points are valid for 30 days. When a members earns 10 points, their account will be automatically suspended: five (5) days for a first suspension; ten (10) days for a second suspension; and twenty (20) days for a third suspension. If a member incurs an additional 10 points after having served three periods of suspension, then they will be permanently banned from the Forum.

Point values are as follows:
Zero (0) points Warning
Two (2) points - Minor infraction / Non post infraction (minor) / Off topic posts / spamming
Four (4) points - Academic dishonesty / Baiting / Discussing moderator or administrator actions / Implying an insult / Minor insults / Moderate infraction / Non-post infraction (moderate) / Thread dumping
Six (6) points - Direct insult at another member / major infraction / Non-post infraction (major)
Ten (10) points - Act of criminality, or advocating thereof

The administrators and moderators also bear the right to issue warnings, temporarily suspend or ban posters for continued trolling or other serious misconduct (eg. professional spamming) even if the poster has not yet reached the maximum warning points or suspensions level. Other options if the above consequences do not seem adequate include placing the member in a moderation queue, which means all posts will have to be approved before they are posted to the board.

PRIVACY POLICY

All information obtained by the end user via the registration process is for internal purposes only and will not be sold to or shared with any third parties. However, if the end user participates in illegal activities and a court of proper jurisdiction orders U.S. Politics Online to release certain information about said user then we will act according to the law. Furthermore, no information will be released on threat of a lawsuit, attempted or actual intimidation, or due to any other reason except as notated in the first sentence of this paragraph. Nonetheless, keep in mind that the information we do have is very limited and generally only consists of the IP address a member uses.

SUBSCRIPTIONS

U.S. Politics Online offers several subscription plans to help cover the operational costs of the site. As a thank you for your donation, you will receive special added benefits meant to enhance your U.S. Politics Online experience. Plans vary in price, starting at only $0.05/day, and benefits vary with the price.

      This is such pointless foolishness, it's going nowhere. It IS funny to discuss though.
      Well, I don't know about it offending everyone. Perhaps not in this day and age.

      I would agree that it's funny to discuss, as I too think it's foolish, but it's not just going nowhere. The insanity has resonated in the minds and actions of our politicians and lawmakers which will directly affect us.

      Men discussing this issue may take it more lightly because there isn't a fear factor of having a biological woman in a men's room. Men are the physically dominant of the species, but it is no joke for woman that will have their privacy and safety invaded. Whichever way it turns out, not much will change for men.

      In fact men that have a firm opinion on this issue are out of their ballpark and should realize the value of their opinion is secondary or even irrelevant to the opinion of a woman. Men will not be suffering the consequences of allowing people to use the bathroom, they "say" they identify with. Men in general have no fear of safety in this issue. They have not been physically overpowered and raped by woman throughout the centuries. In fact men have no business even suggesting that it's not a safety issue when they haven't experienced life knowing that they live with the very real possibility of being overpowered and raped by the "opposite" sex. They should shut their mouths and defer judgement to the women in America. One man alone has the ability to rape a person with their anatomy. One woman alone can not rape anyone with their anatomy. If a man can't understand this, then that man is just plain stupid.

      Many women may support gender identity bathrooms, but many women do not. And if enough do not, that is what is important. Not the opinion of any man.

      One lesbian in a woman's room with ill intention would have a hard time raping another woman. One male transgender/lesbian in a womans room with ill intention can rape a woman. I assume there are ill intentioned transgenders just as there are ill intentioned people in every sect. That's why we have separate bathrooms right, because of the ill intentioned.

      Men, including those on this forum, thinking they know what's best for the women of society are quite arrogant thinking they could calculate what women should and should not fear. And what women do and do not fear.

      ANYONE who can overpower the smallest female, that carries a penis does not belong in a woman's room. Period!

      Captain, you surely understand why I'm a little agitated here?

      • If you want to make separate place for males, that fear using a bathroom or dressing room with other males, that is reasonable and compassionate, but leave the women the hell alone.

          Family blasts 'perverted' Target in march through store

          Video of a family marching through a Target store scorching the retail chain for its transgender bathroom policy has now gone viral, collecting nearly 400,000 views on YouTube in just four days.

          --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

          Perhaps it takes someone on the outside looking in to accurately diagnose the spiritual state of America.

          Thats what Cardinal Robert Sarah, a native of the West African nation of Guinea, did Tuesday at the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C., reported Catholic News Agency.

          God is being eroded, eclipsed, liquidated in the name of tolerance' in the U.S., he said, citing legalization of same-sex marriage, the obligation to accept contraception within health-care programs, and even bathroom bills that allow men to use the womens restrooms and locker rooms.

          Should not a biological man use the mens restroom? he asked. How simpler can that concept be?

          The cardinal shifted his focus from the social and political realm to the church itself, warning against subversion of its orthodoxy and demonic gender ideology' that threatens to wound the family unit itself.

          Sarahs message closely parallels that of Americas prophet, Rabbi Jonathan Cahn.

          WND reported Cahns, whose The Harbinger book racked up months on the New York Times best-sellers list, warning that America, through its Supreme Court and White House, has defied the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and the only answer now is a revival.

          We stand here at this critical hour between two altars, and two gods. The voice of the Lord cries out, Choose you this day whom you shall serve,' he said at the recent 2016 National Day of Prayer event in Washington.

          Our choice is not between one candidate and another; it is between God and Baal.

            We vote into power people with obvious mental problems.

            In this current election cycle we have more power mad nuts - criminals even - wanting to 'lead' our nation.

            ... and these are "serious 'candidates'" ? Yes !?!?!?

            What is happening to us ? Has technology disabled us ?

            Delusion is the new "normal."

            Do those who are mad realize they're mad?

            This president knows that what he is doing is lawless. He's knows that at best it is disingenuous; at worst, completely dishonest."

            With this president, it makes you wonder about his mental health, he tells OneNewsNow. The fact that he is so delusional that he would push this through. He is either delusional, or it's pure evil. I personally think it's more sinister than just a president suffering from a mental illness and a delusion.

            He believes the action reflects a wicked man holding the office of president. Barber also is issuing a call for parents and their children to press members of Congress to hold President Obama accountable.

            ...liberals who have embraced such madness as trigger warnings, safe spaces, microaggressions, choose-your-gender fluidity, and multiculturalism suspect not at all that they have descended into madness.

            ....

            ...the only way to survive in America today is to learn how to dissemble much of the time, or to keep your mouth shut to avoid the consequences of acknowledging truth and reality. Hannah Arendts observation in her magnificent account, Totalitarianism, is depressingly instructive:

            The tremendous shock of disillusion which the Red Army suffered on its conquering trip to Europe could be cured only by concentration camps and forced exile for a large part of the occupation troops; but the police formations which accompanied the Army were prepared for the shock, not by different and more correct information but simply by a general training in supreme contempt for all facts and all reality.

            Virginia Woman Chooses Death Over Voting for Trump or Clinton

            The family of a Virginia woman who passed away this week said she'd rather die than have to vote in this year's presidential election.

            "Faced with the prospect of voting for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, Mary Anne Noland of Richmond chose, instead, to pass into the eternal love of God," the obituary for the 68-year-old retired nurse reads.

            • This "issue" has very little to do with "transgenders" and use of public restrooms and showers. Which is why, in the long run it's going nowhere.

              It has everything to do with authority and government and who has what authority. It has more to do with a man named barack obama who is fond of "pushing the envelope" to see just how far he can go with his abuses of presidential authority. He wants to see just how far Americas "first black president" can go.

              Liberals can't accept this bathroom idiocy either.

              Not if they think about it carefully.

              Liberals won't accept a president making 'laws by proclamation' about something like this - even if they may agree with it - because if they accept this kind "lawmaking by decree" from this president, they have to accept that kind of "lawmaking by decree" from ALL presidents !

              Liberals will never accept that !!

              Lets imagine a conservative president issuing a statement like this about some issue - say he demands that instructors teach students objective and fair analyses concerning lifespans of homosexuals, disease & lifestyle factors (CDC data included), man caused global warming or evolution & creation - and threatening to defund public schools if they refuse his "orders."

              Oh the noise we will hear !!!

              So my liberal friends, be careful how excited you get about a "president" behaving this way, ruling on your favorite "social issue" by decree. If you want to accept one doing it, you have to accept them ALL doing it.

              Do you really want that ?

              No ?

              ?


              • The North Carolina state government has exerted authority over the municipalities and intuitions of the state with the bill, and it isn't just over bathrooms and locker rooms, that's just part of it. Go give the actual law a good read: http://www.ncleg.net/Sessions/2015E2...e/PDF/H2v4.pdf

                  Yes, it's broader than simply the bathroom situation. I have a friend. (who believes bathrooms should remain by biological sex), but takes issue elsewhere in the bill. I believe he is talking about Part III section 3.2. What in this bill do you oppose outside the scope of the bathroom battle?

                    It has everything to do with authority and government and who has what authority. It has more to do with a man named barack obama who is fond of "pushing the envelope" to see just how far he can go with his abuses of presidential authority. He wants to see just how far Americas "first black president" can go.

                    Liberals can't accept this bathroom idiocy either.

                    Not if they think about it carefully.

                    Liberals won't accept a president making 'laws by proclamation' about something like this - even if they may agree with it - because if they accept this kind "lawmaking by decree" from this president, they have to accept that kind of "lawmaking by decree" from ALL presidents !

                    Liberals will never accept that !!

                    Lets imagine a conservative president issuing a statement like this about some issue - say he demands that instructors teach students objective and fair analyses concerning lifespans of homosexuals, disease & lifestyle factors (CDC data included), man caused global warming or evolution & creation - and threatening to defund public schools if they refuse his "orders."

                    Oh the noise we will hear !!!

                    So my liberal friends, be careful how excited you get about a "president" behaving this way, ruling on your favorite "social issue" by decree. If you want to accept one doing it, you have to accept them ALL doing it.

                    Do you really want that ?

                    No ?
                    I don't know Cap. I hope you're right, but things I thought were unimaginable have come to be reality here in the US. I have little faith in the citizens of this country and no faith in our government. Our education system has created a couple of very confused generations. They are taught science and at the same time taught to defy science and statistical facts. They are taught tolerance by teaching intolerance as a useful method to tolerance. And our media adds to their confusion. No wonder these kids are so confused.

                      I know how frustrating it is watching the transformative power of evil that is overtaking America.

                      People see it.

                      People see the game liberals play with words. Words like bigot, racist, homophobe, hate & hateful. These are words liberals use to convince people to accept foolish ideas. These words have lost their power for liberals because people see that the way they're used is untruthful & only to attain power or push undesirable ideas upon them.

                      They see that the liberals who use these words are the most guilty of these words they accuse others of !!!

                      That's how they've manipulated others for so long and it's no longer working ! People see through it and aren't going to allow themselves to be manipulated with word games & lies.

                      Whether or not the media can convince most of America that all is lost and they must accept the foolishness liberals want them to accept . . . that remains to be seen. People are using mainstream media sources less for a couple of reasons; They're poorly presented and have so few choices. They are too obvious about what kind of world they want us to believe this is.

                      It's not over, even IF it seems we've lost. We have to remember who is able to "make the most noise" right now. We have to keep in mind that just because they succeeded for awhile with lies and word games . . . truth & reality ALWAYS WINS.

                      WHAT WOULD OUR GRANDPARENTS THINK?

                      Shifting our gaze to academia, we find that Hampden-Sydney College fired Jerry Boykin, once commander of the Armys elite Delta Force, for his comments on transgender bathrooms. Boykin, doubtlessly expressing the sentiments of many still-sane Americans, said, The first man who goes in the restroom with my daughter will not have to worry about surgery. Stalinist leftists bombarded the school with complaints and pressured it to fire Boykin because his comments were allegedly tantamount to urging violence against transgender individuals. Boykin insisted he was not urging violence. Im old enough to remember when even liberals pretended to champion free speech. Im also old enough to remember when Americans were united in realizing that such bizarre notions as the states sanctioning grown men to enter young girls bathrooms were utterly unthinkable.

                      [ Our grandparents would think we are foolish and ask us to please stop, so we don't hurt ourselves and our children ]

                      Im also old enough to remember the days when top administration officials would be thrown out on their ears and their presidential boss would be held accountable for admitting, let alone bragging, that they deceived the American people into believing a false narrative about something like the Iranian nuclear deal or Obamacare.

                      Is it any wonder people, by the millions, are outraged at whats going on in this culture and are demanding a radical reversal? The political left, however, is relentless, and if you let your guard down for a second, leftists will gobble up more of Americas sanity. Increased vigilance and decisive counteraction are the only things that can possibly save our culture. As distasteful and unnatural as it is for our side, we have to be every bit as aggressive as the rabid left.

                        What the hell? Transformative power that is taking over America? Like torture, extraordinary rendition, pre-emptive war, tax breaks while increasing spending?

                        Truth and reality always win...? The federal debt increased more under George W. Bush than Barack Obama as a percentage of GDP. The annual deficit has decreased under Obama each and every year except for the 2010 budget.

                        What would our grandparents think? They're the ones who elected FDR. Overwhelmingly signed the Geneva Conventions. Overwhelmingly passed the Civil Rights Act. Overwhelmingly elected JFK and Johnson. Bush loses the popular vote in 2000 and wins the electoral college due to a Supreme Court decision and decides it's a mandate to drastically expand faith based charities and mega churches?

                        YOU'RE ONTO THE POTTY POLICE ISSUE AGAIN!?!?! Liberals didn't bring that up... come on dude. A transgendered woman was assaulted in Virginia when she tried to use a woman's bathroom.. I've watched the interview, she looks like a woman, has breasts, sounds like a woman. Let her use the bloody ladies room.

                        http://www.nbcwashington.com/news/lo...380010941.html

                        Please show me just one case where a transgendered person gained access to a bathroom and caused any problems.


                        Please... I'd love to have a civilized discussion on any point that I've raised.

                              Trump: 11,165,486 Cruz, Rubio, Kasich: = 14,705,256.

                              22,947,023. confirmed nut jobs VS 24,870,742. other votes cast. Pretty darn close.

                                No, it is Mr. obama who has a deep and disturbing fascination with "the potty."

                                "Transgender" people have been using restrooms just fine - this was not an issue. Until Mr. obama came along. At issue is the perverts that have, will and ARE using this as a method to allow them access to people of the opposite sex in compromising or undressed states. But you would know this if you were paying attention.

                                barack obama is a man at war with reality who wants to make his war OUR war.

                                We must not be dragged into the dark places of this mans mental illness, he's very sick.

                                Does Obama's Troubled Childhood Explain His Bathroom Weirdness?

                                It is not considered polite to mention it, but Obama observers have ignored a great deal of evidence that the president of the United States was abused at approximately age ten and afterwards, in a way that would be criminal under American and European law. This whole topic should be out of bounds for political debate, but now the grown up Barack Obama has issued an edict to American school systems, which are responsible for the welfare of millions of children in this country. It is legally unprecedented that the president would direct whether schoolchildren should able to enter bathrooms reserved for a different gender. It is Obama himself who has now pushed what Freud called psychosexual development onto the political stage, where it does not belong.

                                Medically and scientifically, the credibility of children's beliefs about their own sexuality has no foundation in evidence. Sexual development has been studied in psychiatry and psychology since the 19th century, usually by way of case histories. But our truly reliable evidence is near zero. Any nationwide policy affecting the psychosexual development of children is therefore absurd and irresponsible on its face. Nobody knows for sure, because there is no scientific standard for sexual identity. Some studies of so-called "sex change" surgery show high failure rates. Until recently, no medical doctor would have authorized any unproven treatment for an underage individual. The Obama edict therefore has no medical or scientific basis, to say the least.

                                The only explanation that makes sense comes from the young Barry Soetoro's own life story.


                                At age ten, the child Barry Soetoro was sent by his biological mother from Jakarta, Indonesia to Hawaii, where his grandparents apparently handed him over to the care of a person of known and questionable character, his "mentor," Frank Marshall Davis. There is no known legal basis for this double transfer of parental responsibility. The mother and her husband remained in Indonesia so that legally, the child was abandoned by his legal parents. This is child neglect.


                                ...

                                As far as is known, Frank Marshall Davis never legally adopted the ten-year-old child. Any family welfare worker would have raised serious questions about the legality and safety of Frank Marshall Davis becoming the sole adoptive parent. Davis was a hard-core Communist at the time, a party member. The Soviet Union, then under Nikita Khruschev and soon Leonid Brezhnev, posed a nuclear threat to the Western world. The Cold War was at its height. Davis was an obsessively enraged anti-white, anti-American individual, as shown in his newsletters and personal accounts. Davis wrote at least one pornographic pseudo-autobiography under the name Ben Green. He was an obsessive race-hater.

                                On the face of it, Barry's mother, his grandparents, and Mr. Davis were guilty at least of child neglect. Psychologically, children who are passed around like this are often traumatically affected. Abandonment at a vulnerable age is said to inflict an emotional "wound" that may turn into narcissistic overcompensation. To make up for crushing feelings of personal rejection, a child may take refuge in grandiose and self-glorifying fantasies.


                                .....

                                Obama's "Bathroom Edict" is an obvious abuse of presidential power. It should not be obeyed, even if parents and teachers have to mount a major resistance campaign. The fact that it hasn't already stirred enormous public outrage shows how desensitized we have become.

                                Obamas promotion of the LGBT agenda reflects much more than just a push for so-called tolerance.

                                Obama is obsessed with promoting homosexualism and now transsexuality, LaBarbera told OneNewsNow. He's engaged in a war on normal for the last eight years, and it looks like he's trying to do as much as he can to promote sexual and gender perversions as he can before he leaves office.

                                If you was born a man, go to the mens bathroom, shopper Deana Chisholm told WJLA-TV 7. You got a penis, go to the mens bathroom. If you are born a woman, go to the womens bathroom. Period!

                                ..in other transgender news: Target a retail chain that announced on April 19 that it would let men claiming to be women use its womens bathrooms and dressing rooms is now suffering a $10 billion stock crash after more than 1.2 million Americans signed a petition to boycott the stores.

                                Target executives told reporters the stores second-quarter sales from April to June may plummet as much as 2 percent from the previous year.

                                As far as investors are concerned, Target is a risky bet.

                                Target is now a question because the degradation of Target from month to month to month has them confused, Cramer said. Apparel [sales] is not good, electronics is not good, the [earnings] guidance is horrendous.

                                Since it implemented its new bathroom and dressing room policy, Targets stocks have plummeted 20 percent from $84 a share to $67 a share. That loss represents a $10 billion loss from the overall shareholder value of the company.

                                A recent editorial in North Carolina's leading newspaper says that when it comes to transgender issues, girls must get used to seeing male genitalia in school locker rooms.

                                Responding to the Obama administration's nationwide directive that public schools must allow transgender students to use the bathroom they feel most comfortable with, The Charlotte Observer's editorial board has likened the issue to civil rights legislation.

                                "The physical and emotional abuse blacks endured under segregation, on a good day, are in no way analogous to the adulation and 'rights' that those who suffer from gender dysphoria are experiencing and receiving," he states. "For the Obama administration to say as much insults the intelligence, and brazenly disrespects the tradition of, the black civil rights movement."

                                "The failure of black leaders to stand up and destroy the notion that this homosexual and sexual deviancy agenda is synonymous with the civil rights struggle has helped allow this agenda to not only progress but to grow legs and run," he tells OneNewsNow.

                                "This is what the Obama administration nudged the rest of the country toward Friday," reads the editorial, which was published May 13 but is now gaining national attention. "Yes, the thought of male genitalia in girls' locker rooms and vice versa might be distressing to some. But the battle for equality has always been in part about overcoming discomfort with blacks sharing facilities, with gays sharing marriage then realizing that it was not nearly so awful as some people imagined."
