The Bradley County Commission on Monday night was unanimous in backing a resolution by Commissioner Dan Rawls letting state legislators "know that we are behind you" on the transgender bathroom issue.

Commissioner Rawls said the issue ought to be decided by local authorities. He said, "San Francisco can do what they want to. This is Bradley County."

He said the issue was "much more than bathrooms. It's about destroying our way of life and protecting the women and children in our lives."

Commissioner Rawls said the resolution was aimed at holding in check "the degenerates and perverts that are pushing forward everywhere. There seem to be more of them every day."

He showed the commissioners on video with speakers expressing concerns about allowing those born as males into female bathrooms.

Commissioner Bill Winters said he had a recent experience in which his seven-year-old granddaughter was with a group in a swimming pool and a 12-year-old boy announced that he "was going to be a girl today."

He said, "Young people are picking up that they can choose to be what they want to be."

He added, "There is going to be much confusion if we don't get ahead of this quickly."

Commissioner Terry Caywood said the federal government was trying to dictate numerous aspects of life, including a dictum against a successful program for a mentally challenged group.

Commissioner Charlotte Peak-Jones said she had the solution for the bathroom issue that could be the answer across the country.

She said instead of having signs saying Women and Men that there should be signs depicting the appropriate body parts at birth, and that should be the standard.

DACA Or Amnesty To Become The Majority?

As we have the political drama that we see in D.C. let’s be honest about what DACA is all about. We understand as the liberal policies of abortion, dependency on the government and an anti-American globalist / progressive agenda that many have come to realize these policies no longer represent their core beliefs and have left a certain party. Without an influx of new dependency ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: The Saturday Funnies

It is said that a 15-year-old in Minnesota, where just like the rest of the United States prayer in schools is prohibited, was tasked with writing an essay. He turned in his paper and, as it was returned with an A-plus, it is only fitting that something this clever should begin this week’s edition of The  Saturday  Funnies. Those who enjoy the Funnies understand that ... (click for more)
