Double Think Continues: Disney Dumps American Workers & Bathroom Battles
|Double Think Continues|
Mr. Perrero was a highly trained information technology worker at the Walt Disney Company. He had received excellent job reviews. And yet even as Disney reported record profits, Mr. Perrero was told by corporate executives that his job was being given to foreign workers brought into the country on H-1B visas. Adding insult to injury, Perrero was told that HE would have to train his replacement.
What happened at Disney is happening all over the country.
These aren't the low-skilled jobs that Americans supposedly won't do. These are good-paying, high-skilled jobs that Americans need in order to support families and pay taxes.
Immigration policy is supposed to benefit America and its citizens. But bringing in foreign workers to pay them less than Americans results in unemployed Americans and less tax revenue to the government.
Across the spectrum -- left, right, Republican, Democrat, Independent -- Americans are sick and tired of a political system that seems rigged against them.
Voters are looking beyond establishment politicians for solutions this year. That's why Jeb Bush is out of the race and why Hillary Clinton is struggling to beat an aging socialist.
Trump and Sanders aren't the solution. But there is no denying that this year is different. Millions of Americans feel betrayed by Washington, so it's not surprising that they are looking to outsiders and radicals for answers.
Bathroom Battles - Speaking of radical, the left is taking its war on common sense to a bathroom near you.
Two weeks ago, a man walked into the women's locker room at a Seattle public pool and proceeded to undress. Women in the locker room complained to the management, who asked the man to leave. He refused, saying, "The law has changed and I have a right to be here."
I don't think he has any right to be there, but he is correct that liberals changed the law, allowing him to be there.
A spokesman for the Seattle Parks office told local media, "We have guidelines that allow transgender individuals to use restrooms and locker rooms consistent with their gender identity. We want everyone to feel comfortable in our facilities."
Good luck with that. I suspect most women are not going to feel comfortable with a man in their locker room!
This nonsense is not isolated to the left coast. Earlier this week, the city council of Charlotte, North Carolina, approved an ordinance allowing men to use women's bathrooms based on their "gender identity." Conservative state legislators are vowing to reverse it.
In Jacksonville, Florida, the city council recently defeated a similar effort. Councilman Tommy Hazouri withdrew his bill to include "gender identity" in the city's human rights ordinance when he realized it lacked support. But he blasted other council members, saying, "Today, we are stuck in the past, frozen in time, when it comes to human rights."
Are you kidding me? There is no "human right" to invade the privacy of the opposite sex. Where does the left come up with this idiocy?
For all those well-meaning folks who just didn't see how same-sex marriage affected them, let me say this: If we had held the line on the normal meaning of marriage, we would not be having this debate today! But here we are sliding further down the slippery slope.
It's bad enough that adults are having to contend with this nonsense, but the Obama Administration is forcing it on our kids. Thankfully, some states are trying to fight back. Republicans in Congress should be joining them. Nobody voted for this!
While the left is obsessing over a miniscule minority, who is defending the privacy rights of the vast majority?
