The Obama Administration has done it this time! Its edict to public schools on transgender access to restrooms is nothing less than a national disaster. Remarkably, it assumes that character for a multiplicity of interested persons and affected parties.

To schools, it testifies that even toilets and showers are now beyond their disciplinary control.

Even for President Obama and Hillary Clinton, it may well be the nasty mandate which elects Donald Trump/David Leroy, former Republican attorney general, Idaho Statesman. More here.
