President Barack Hussein Obama issued an order to public schools Friday morning that they must allow transgender students to use whichever restrooms correspond with their gender identity, regardless of their biological sex.
My response: “Who cares!?!”
Well, Jake, that is rather flippant; this will potentially affect millions of families across America!

Imagine you are at a baseball game and it is bottom of the 9th inning. The winning run for the home team rounds third base and heads to home plate where he slides graciously into the catcher’s mitt with ball in hand. Before the umpire makes the call, a home team fan screams out of the bleachers, “Safe!” Should the umpire count the run? Should the umpire turn and start yelling at the fan? No, the umpires duty is to make the call, “You’re out!” Though the fan deserves chastisement, he certainly has no relevance when it comes to making the call.
Article 2 of the U.S. Constitution clearly defines the powers of the President. You will find absolutely no section that authorizes the President to have any authority, or spend any money from the Federal treasury, for school bathrooms or education. He is not the commander-in-chief of the public school bathrooms in America.
I realize this is strange to the average American. I have had many opportunities to share “limited government speeches” across the nation. I have found that most adults either agree or disagree with me, but the secondary and university students either agree with me or are so unfamiliar with the topic of Constitutional government that they act like I am from a different country, or another planet. Their education consists of learning about a new, untried world of peace, happiness, and non-threatening moral anomalies, while under the protection of a Judeo-Christian system of ethics that has held back the ugly reality of secular despotism.
Every year states take federal funding to federalize the education systems in their state. The result? They build a new American citizenry that, in ignorance and zeal, promotes the collapse of true liberty, which is found only under the Law of Nature and Nature’s God.
This institution daily becomes a Trojan Horse – a 5th column – and it is not clandestine.
The wisdom of the Hebrew King Solomon speaks directly to this conundrum when he forecasted, “There is a man who has labored with wisdom, knowledge and skill, and then he gives his legacy to one who has not labored with them. This too is vanity and a great evil.”
So, while men like Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick blame Obama again, I believe the real treachery is being done by the states that are taking federal funding for their schools.
Recall that our delusional fan’s “umpire complex” gave him no authority over the game; and the President with his “transgender policy complex” has no authority in school bathrooms.
