The Meaning of Insanity
Antoine is at La Table
Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Monday, November 24, 2014. Our dear ami, Antoine, is at the breakfast table. He is confused and bothered by the level of stupidity and insanity he is experiencing. For the sake of his mental health, he has asked us to join him for breakfast so he can vent. Antoine will be preparing Peach French Toast for our enjoyment. I will be serving martinis. We hope to see you soon. Bring your sense of humor and an antacid!
Silence the Music
Thank you all for joining me this morning. I appreciate your sensitivity and kindness in my time of need. Let me begin with a tale of one Florida high school that caved in to the unreasonable demands of the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of a complaint from an atheist parent who was offended by the school's concert being held in a local church's auditorium. This exact venue has been used for the last four years, but this year was just too much for this parent.
The concert was a traditional fall event. There were no religious overtones at all, but nevertheless this parent just couldn't bear the thought of this venue being used. Stupid is as stupid does and this fight is stupid. The sick part is that the school decided to cancel the concert. Bad decision in my view. One disgruntled parent does not have the right to destroy a concert for the whole school. The concert should have gone on. If the atheist parent didn't want their child to be involved, keep him or her home from school.
Get Out of My Bathroom!
A school in Minnesota, is considering instituting a "transgender" policy that would conceivably allow a female student to shower next to a male student. There are so many rights being violated here that I think I need to lie down! Transgender policies are spreading like a disease across the country. The policy is aimed at students who believe they were born a different sex from what they are living. In other words if a girl believes she was meant to be a boy and she/he wants to play football, she/he should play football and shower with the guys. If your head is spinning around like a top, consider yourself normal. How this issue of "transgender" became a hot topic, is one of the mysteries of life these days. My conclusion is that schools in Minnesota have way too much time on their hands. "Transgender Sensitivity Training" is on the way to a school near you. Good luck with that!
Soldier Father Banned From School
Kevin Wood is a veteran of the Marine corps. His daughter attends high school in Maryland. She was given an assignment which required her to examine elements of the Islamic religion. Woods and his wife objected to the assignment and voiced their concerns. The school issued a no trespass order so that the father could not come up to school. The teacher refused to assign a different topic for his daughter and, in fact, was told that she would receive a failing grade for not doing what was assigned. So much for freedom of speech and parental concerns.
Holidays Take a Holiday
A Maryland school district has decided to do away with any references to religious holidays on school calendars. The Muslim community was pressuring the school to include Muslim holidays. The school made the brilliant decision to eliminate references to all holidays. Good-bye Christmas, Easter, Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashana! The Muslim leaders zeroed in on the Muslim holiday Eid al-Adha. It falls on the same day as Yom Kippur. The schools in the district of Montgomery are already closed on that day and have been since the 70's. There are not enough Muslim students in the district to warrant adding this day to the calendar. The decision to eliminate mentioning all holidays didn't satisfy anybody. The calendars will now refer to Winter Break and Spring Break. Jewish holidays will be re-named as No School! How's that for a solution!!!
Let's go children of the homeland
The day of reckoning has arrived
Against you insanity has reared its ugly head!
