An Open Letter to Target:
Regarding your New Restroom Policy

April 20, 2016   

To Whom It May Concern:

I am a woman. I am a frequent shopper in your stores. I am first and foremost a mother. Your recent change in policy of who you allow to use each restroom concerns me. You stated in your blog post, “We believe that everyone…deserves to be protected from discrimination and treated equally.” and “…you’ll always be accepted, respected, and welcomed at Target.” As a business owner, I do understand your right to make a stance as a company. As a parent, I will never understand why you would trade the safety of our women and children for the sake of not hurting  feelings.

I realize that everyone needs to feel accepted, loved, and wanted. I know the struggles of a person struggling to find their identity. I also know that as of September 2012, a Gallup poll showed that approximately 3.4% of Americans identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender. If, for argument’s sake, we assume that those groups are of equal representation in that number, that would indicate that of the American population, only 0.85% of Americans identify as transgender.

Let’s also look at other statistics, taken from RAINN.ORG:

1 in 6 women will be the victim of attempted or completed rape in her lifetime.

1 in 9 girls under 18 have REPORTED being the victim of sexual assault.

1 in 53 boys under 18 have REPORTED being the victim of sexual assault.

These numbers factor out to being 16.67% of women, 11.11% of girls, and 1.89% of boys.

If anyone is allowed to “claim” an identity of a gender not their own, they will have unlimited access to anyone they so choose. A woman could claim to “identify as a man” and YOUR little boy could become 1 in 9 in an instant. A man could claim to “identity as a woman” and have instant access to myself and my daughters. BAM. I am 1 in 6 and my little girls are 1 in 9.

You have taken the FEELINGS of LESS THAN ONE PERCENT of our population into account  and in one swift statement told the entire country that the safety of our vulnerable women and children is of no concern to you or your staff.

I have questions:

How can you ensure that the people entering the restrooms of the opposite gender are, indeed, of the “gender persuasion” they are currently claiming to identify with?

Are you willing to send your wives and daughters into a restroom that is occupied by another man and trust that he is who he says he is? How about your son with a  woman?

How should I handle an instance where my two and four year olds see a man’s private parts and I have to explain a) why she saw his genitals and b) why is in a women’s restroom long before they should ever have to consider such adult matters?

And, lastly:

WHY are you willing to forego the physical safety of the many to appease the internal struggle of the few?

I’ve never “boycotted” a company based on political views. However, I will refuse to use a company for the safety of my children.

Target, you have lost a loyal customer because you have betrayed my trust. My children’s safety comes first.

Ain't life grand?


If you think your health insurance premiums are bad now, just wait until you see what they do next year. Now that United Healthcare has bailed out of the program after losing half a billion, the remaining companies will be able to charge whatever they want just to keep Obamacare operating.

Do you think there was $1.3 million worth of information on the San Bernadino iPhone? That’s what the FBI paid to have it hacked.

From what I saw here, it looks like you can drive around New York and vote as many times as you wish.

The fallout has started in California over the new minimum wage proposal. Kmart and Sears are closing stores.

All the new rules the Fed is implementing on banks is going to make it very difficult for small businesses to get loans. It will be easier for a gay couple to adopt a child than for a business to get a loan. Hide and watch!

Here are some examples of the downside to government interference in who can use your restroom.

It’s no longer call Gender Identity Disorder, but Gender Dysphoria. The reason for the name change is that it’s no longer considered a mental illness. Treatment no longer consists of treating it as a disorder, but the symptoms that manifest: stress, anxiety and/or depression.

It can start at a very early age

I find it hard to argue with this...


While Ted Nugent did not endorse any candidate, he said his list in favor of voting for “The Donald” was too special not to share. We think you’ll agree with him:

Obama is against Trump
The Media is against Trump
The establishment Democrats are against Trump
The establishment Republicans are against Trump
The Pope is against Trump
The UN is against Trump
The EU is against Trump
China is against Trump
Mexico is against Trump
Soros is against Trump
Black Lives Matter is against Trump
MoveOn.Org is against Trump
Koch Bro’s are against Trump
Hateful, racist, violent Liberals are against Trump 

The Nuge nailed it. The reason these people and organizations are against Trump is because he threatens them and their left-wing agenda. A Trump presidency would certainly shake up the infrastructure many on this list have either established or fought to maintain under President Barack Obama and his administration.

Nugent even provided a few “bonus points” for a Trump presidency as well: 

Cher says she will leave the country
Mylie Cyrus says she will leave the country
Whoopi says she will leave the country
Rosie says she will leave the country
Al Sharpton says he will leave the country
Gov. Brown says California will build a wall 

There is absolutely no reason to argue with Nugent on any of this. In fact, this looks more like a reason to celebrate should Trump make his way to the White House.

Will half this country
vote for this woman?

The list is amazing...
Do you really want this woman
in control of the CIA, FBI, IRS, DEA or the DHS?

Sunday's Sermon

“…the rich man said, ‘Please, Father Abraham, at least send him to my father’s home. 28 For I have five brothers, and I want him to warn them so they don’t end up in this place of torment.’

“But Abraham said, ‘Moses and the prophets have warned them. Your brothers can read what they wrote.’ “

“The rich man replied, ‘No, Father Abraham! But if someone is sent to them from the dead, then they will repent of their sins and turn to God.’

“But Abraham said, ‘If they won’t listen to Moses and the prophets, they won’t be persuaded even if someone rises from the dead.’”

The last phrase I underlined still holds true 2,000 years later...

The great socialism experiment.


An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama's socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. 

The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama's plan".. All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A.... (substituting grades for dollars - something closer to home and more readily understood by all). 

After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. 

As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little. The second test average was a D! No one was happy. 


When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F. As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else. 

To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed. Could not be any simpler than that. 

These are possibly the 5 best sentences you'll ever read and all applicable to this experiment: 

1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. 

2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. 

3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. 

4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it! 

5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

If we're lucky,
maybe once in a lifetime
something phenomenal happens

I didn't know Ireland had
staunch conservative politicians

Whoever she attacked left the room limping
because she kicked his arse... Blarney!

Preacher, say it ain't so!


 ~ What do you think about the gay pastor’s lawsuit against Whole Foods for a gay slur supposedly on a cake he bought? Whole Foods is countersuing him and his attorney for $100k saying they can prove (with a video) that they did not do it and the cake in question was not the one he bought in their store.

You don’t think that preacher may have wanted to promote his church in this ordeal? He may have rear ended himself...

 ~ What happens to elementary students in Tennessee that don’t stop a fight? They get handcuffed and arrested. 6-10 year old criminal behavior?

  ~ The Department of Homeland Security has issued a warning. If you have Quicktime on your Windows based computer, they say you need to uninstall it. Big problems!

  ~ If you want to know why your health insurance premiums are soaring, a major factor is over 1 million illegal aliens are being subsidized by your premiums. This is redistribution of wealth from the middle class to people here illegally, this is not right.

  ~ Prediction: If California raises the minimum wage to $15, watch an Exodus of hundreds of companies as they head east for greener pastures in the east. Cost of living will soar. Cities there will beome like Detroit and Chicago by 2025.

I think Amazon saw the writing on the wall and moved to Texas, the second to last state to interfere with business.

Another prediction: If Trump wins the GOP nomination, rally’s will have more aggressive protesters and civil unrest will break out. You don’t see any Democrats calling for peace and harmony do you?

  ~ And then there’s the Smartmatress. It has an app for your phone that tells you if someone’s having sex in your bed. A hidden camera is cheaper.

Cost of government lawsuit?
Hundred$ of billion$ to start.


WASHINGTON — Saudi Arabia has told the Obama administration and members of Congress that it will sell off hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of American assets held by the kingdom if Congress passes a bill that would allow the Saudi government to be held responsible in American courts for any role in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. NY Times

This is would be an economic Hurricane Katrina. The end result would be great redistribution of wealth. Big banks would make billions.

This would also open up a can of worms for other countries suing the US for bombing Japan, Germany, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and everyone else we have attacked, justified or not.

If our government has proof that the Saudi government was involved, why has it not been made public?

Personally, I think it’s extortion, something our government does on a regular basis. Examples are suits against big tobacco, Microsoft, Apple, colleges, cities and states.

Of course, our federal government has given themselves immunity from many such lawsuits, even if they are guilty. Talk about priviledge.


 ~ Let's talk more about Saudi and our government. If you wonder why almost every President over the last 3 decades has been kissing the Royal Family's arse, take a look at the $681 million donation they made to the Malaysian Prime Minister expecting nothing in return.  Yea, right!  Payola is part of their culture, and it's very effective getting things done in politics.

I suspect the lawsuit posted above may just be a political move to get Saudi to pay off donate to Congressional leaders, just like they do everyone else. What a way to extort money have a fundraiser! Don't think the lobbyists and Congressional leaders aren't already doing a rain dance. Millions will change hands.

Have we given our Senators and Representatives a license to commit extortion; to conspire against whomever they can make pay their price? This, by definition, is organized crime.

Have no fear though, President Obama is on his way to Saudi on Wednesday to save the day. I wonder how much his foundation will benefit from his influence.

I will not be hypocritical about Saudi making genuine donations. I just want to know how to get on the their genuine donation list and wait my turn.

Micromanaging America
Good luck with that...


 ~ The President has signed an executive order that is aimed at inciting competition of big businesses in America. I wonder how much that’s going to cost us. Usually this type of interference produces the exact opposite of its intended purpose.

 ~ The Horror! How will Georgetown University survive its untold history. 272 slaves were sold in 1838 to secure its future. Heads will be exploding all over campus with this news. Acceptance, tolerance and forgiveness is not part of the liberal mindset or agenda.

I predict someone will sue for the Catholic Institution for reparations and settle quietly. Past sins cannot be made right by dollars. Give 272 full scholarships to the descendants of the slaves and move forward. A degree allows for freedom of choice and from ignorance, both of which can enslave.

 ~ Paypal has cancelled building a facility in North Carolina because the state’s position on anti discrimination of LGBT citizens. Paypal has every right to do this, yet we the people, have every right to choose not to do business with them if we disagree with their policies. It used to be called free enterprise.

Call me what you will, but the people in each state have the right not to give preferential rights not already granted by the Constitution to any special group of people, including Christians, Muslims, politicians, felons, ect… All people should have equal rights, not privileged groups.

 ~ I cannot believe the conditioning our youth are receiving playing video games. Grand Theft Auto is becoming a medium of violent, destructive depravity. Silence is consent.

 ~ I wonder how they missed spotting a galaxy that orbits our own? This is just 1 of the 4 that orbit us.

 ~ Oh, and BTW, that healthy diet of seafood you’ve been eating has recently been found to contain more unhealthy chemicals called POPs. DDT is a POP. A very small amount obstructs our chemical defense system. We will continue to have more and more sickness.

Sunday's Sermon

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and he will give you everything you need.

So don’t be afraid, little flock. For it gives your Father great happiness to give you the Kingdom.

Sell your possessions and give to those in need. This will store up treasure for you in heaven! And the purses of heaven never get old or develop holes. Your treasure will be safe; no thief can steal it and no moth can destroy it. Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.
