KHS entrance creates dangerous turn

Traveling to Lihue (last week) couple car lengths behind a FedEx truck. Just in front of the Humane Society someone was making a left hand turn into the facility. Just at the last second the FedEx driver swerved to avoid the turning car. I realize from being a regular on the road exactly what was happening.

Lucky for me, no one was approaching from my right side and I was able to follow the move and keep from hitting the car. Unfortunately, a tourist behind me was unfamiliar with the road and had to slam on their brakes at the last moment.

It’s time the highway department takes a look at this entrance and takes measures to change this poorly designed entrance. It’s an accident waiting to happen.

One’s sex should be based on biology

The Obama administration has issued a decree that transgender bathrooms in federally funded schools should allow transgender students to use whatever facilities they choose.

The directive from Assistant Secretary of Education for Civil Rights Catherine Lhamon, and Vanita Gupta, leader of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, cites federal Title IX in arguing that “nondiscrimination on the basis of sex requires schools to provide transgender students equal access to educational programs and activities even in circumstances in which other students, parents, or community members raise objections or concerns,” The Washington Post reports.

The interesting point is that the government is now mandating that sex is not based on biology, it is based on whatever whim one has today or this week. So today, if I feel I am really a girl, I will use girl’s bathroom, and tomorrow I’ll be a boy so … Then, perhaps today I feel I am an infant and tomorrow an elder, or today I am Asian and tomorrow African? As far as I know, for all mammals, there are only two sexes and it can’t be changed. Common Core Curriculum is putting children at risk by confusing them, because there is a high incidence of depression and suicide by people who try to futilely change their sex. You can’t.

Let’s stick with something we know… Human beings are either born with ovaries or not. Let’s have some dignity about this and support clear distinctions. Discriminating wisdom is not discrimination, it’s honoring what is natural.
