"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

Thousands of Americans have signed a petition to allow open carry ay the republican convention. I know at least a dozen democrats who have signed to let them do it. No one is going to be checking the names and the secret service will not allow it anyway.

Obviously a typo above and the comment refers to a petition circulating to allow guns at the Republican nomination convention. 

The  writer knows a "dozen democrats who have signed the petition to let them do it"

Be careful what you ask for.

It's obviously fantasy time in the neighbourhood. Sounds like shoot-out at the Old Coral. The Behemoth is at large.

Right now CNN is discussing a law to prohibit transgender people from using washrooms of the 
adopted sex. Women are alarmed at the prospect of being in danger from a man who feels like 
a woman. 

Apparently men are not worried about being at risk from a woman who feels like a man. 

It boggles the mind . I keep waiting for details to be revealed.

Ellen de Generis using a men's washroom would be unlikely to perch on a urinal.

The  cubicle is the obvious option. What kind of man would be threatened by twinkle toes?

If a man feeling like a woman, wanted to use a woman's washroom, a cubicle is the only option. 

If a man was suspected, the cubicle would have to be taken  apart for evidence. 

Then who would be at risk?

I've seen similar silly bylaws proposed but this is utterly ridiculous. 

I was at a celebratory breakfast in a Country Club in Hockley Valley a few months ago. Washrooms were in a row in a small passage off the cloakroom. There were no urinals. No segregation. 
If anyone else noticed, no mention was made of it. 

Sometimes It seems the entire country has gone mad. 

But I suppose it depends on how much news you watch. 

Who has more fun than people?

What has more fun than people are diving giraffes.

And they make us smile.

The Secret Service has put the kiibbosh on guns at the convention. So the Republicans have applied for a permit to have a big parade instead. Maybe they figure they can get the guns on show that way.

I think what we are seeing is completely nuts. If the republican convention is brokered and Trump does not get selected, it will make that awful democratic one in chicago look tame, Not good at all.

But a lovely day in Aurora.
