No Restroom for the Virtuous

By Larry Thornberry on 8.14.13 @ 6:09AM

Governor Moonbeam makes sexual fluidity official in planet California.

We lost Pluto as a planet some years back. I can’t remember the nit astronomers picked with the large frozen rock named after Mickey’s dog when they voted it off the planetary island. But we still have nine planets if we count California, which we should.

Silliness knows no bounds on the left coast. There is no idea crack-pot enough not to be championed, even made law, in the nation’s most progressive and politically unhinged state. There apparently is no utter nonsense immune system in Sacramento. The latest evidence for this being a bill signed into law Monday by Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown which declares that California school children are whatever sex they think they are, not necessarily the sex their anatomy assigns them to.

So henceforth and hereafter, if a government school student in California has a penis and testicles, he is not necessarily, as the entire human race has comfortably assumed for centuries, male. He is whatever he (or she) thinks she (or he) is, on any given day. The new expression for this sexual fluidity is “expressed gender.” If this sounds a lot like being able to say you are something that you aren’t, that’s because that’s just what this means.

Government school children in California may now use whichever restroom they choose and may go out for any boys or girls school athletic team they wish. This legislation was brought about for the care and comfort of what are called transgendered students, whether the transgendering has been surgical or just in the student’s mind. This fits neatly with the Gospel According to the Left, which holds that sex of the old-fashioned anatomical kind is of no account, that men and women and boys and girls are interchangeable, and there are all manner of niche sexes out there, combinations and permutations to be discovered, appreciated, and catered to. California may be the first state in the nation forced to outlaw personal pronouns, there being too many possibilities for the human mind to grapple with in its progressive precincts.

This surreal legislation, no one should be surprised, was written by a Democrat, one Assemblyman Tom Ammiano of — big surprise coming here – San Francisco.(If California is a planet, San Francisco is its brightest and gaudiest ring.) Ammiano, who is gay, insists his legislation will make school life easier for transgendered students. He has so far, however, had little to say about the chaos this will cause the overwhelmingly larger group of students who are comfortable with the sex assigned to them at birth. Carlos Alcala, a spokesman for Ammiano, gave the following world-class understatement to the San Jose Mercury News:“Clearly, there are some parents who are not going to like it.” Ya think? Probably a student or two as well.

Alcala added,“We are hopeful school districts will work with them (parents, presumably) so students aren’t put in an uncomfortable position.” California school and state legislative officials are indeed working on this difficult mission. My sources in Sacramento tell me that restrooms in California schools and state buildings will soon carry the following designations: Men, Women, Whatever, Work in Progress, No Preference, I Feel Very Strongly Both Ways, Not Applicable, Ecumenical, and Who Am I to Say?

This is insane stuff, of course. Just one more indication of decadence in a culture growing more dysfunctional by the day. But folks in less febrile regions shouldn’t laugh too hard at California’s expense, though the temptation to do so is almost irresistible. California, as well as being its own planet, is also a leading cultural indicator. What starts in California eventually metastasizes to flyover America. Sadly, what happens in California does not stay in California. Would that it did.

Finished mopping. Even did a load of laundry.

How 'bout Obama missing that putt on the 9th hole when John Kerry is giving a speech about Egypt imploding in front of our eyes?

Obama did his job. He won. The real power does the real work now...or damage...whichever way you look at it.

Must be nice being the president without having to do the work besides reading teleprompters and rambling memorized talking points in press conferences. And someone putting powder in your hair to make it look like the job is aging you occasionally.

Funny his hair is gray sometimes and not other times, isn't it?

Look booby, my sole focus is the secession of Texas from the U.S. After that we will deal with these issues as a sovereign nation.

Maybe we'll take a look at how the Obama administration has been doing as he is deporting them a lot faster than Bush ever did.

What do you have against Mexicans anyhows?

A lot of them work harder that your average acne face covered Anglo-Saxon teenager so maybe we keep the Mexicans and start deporting lazy people.

<quoted text>And what have they done about CRA since the financial debacle son?
And where's the industry today?
BTW, I still haven't seen your source that CRA has been changed or repealed to get it off 'steroids.' Just your idiotic claims.
Your so called 'source' versus reality... I'll take reality. Regardless of what you claim without thinking.
The industry today is....hmmmm...according to the Washington Post, the Obama administration is pushing big banks to make more home loans available to Americans with bad credit – the same kind of government guidance that helped blow up the housing market:

In response, administration officials say they are working to get banks to lend to a wider range of borrowers by taking advantage of taxpayer-backed programs — including those offered by the Federal Housing Administration — that insure home loans against default.

Housing officials are urging the Justice Department to provide assurances to banks, which have become increasingly cautious, that they will not face legal or financial recriminations if they make loans to riskier borrowers who meet government standards but later default.

Think about this statement. The administration is asking banks – banks that Washington bails out; banks that Washington crafts regulations for — to embrace risky policies that put the institution and its investors (not to mention, all of us) in a precarious position. So precarious, in fact, that banks have to ask government if they can be freed of any legal or financial consequences.

Not that they have much choice. Since the housing crash, Washington, as the Post points out,“has shaped most of the housing market, insuring between 80 percent and 90 percent of all new loans.”

And I have no doubt that demanding banks make more loans available to folks with bad credit is a political winner. Why wouldn't this be a good policy? Think about it, somehow Obama can blame Bush for all of this, as he usually does.

And by the time it all comes crashing down again, Obama will be on a book tour. It's a win-win for Democrats.

I know. He's entitled to play golf while the rest of the world implodes and his Secretary of State has to do his job for him.

At least he could have gotten a photo op on the phone pretending to be involved in the crisis.
Obama caused the Egypt civil war!

Oh well.
