Way to go Texas! Finally some good ole’ disobedience. Only from states in the south, but at least it’s a start. If the States buckle under to these kinds of totally illegal orders from the White House there will be no end to what ridiculous stunts Obama will try next. January can not come fast enough.
A top Texas official said the state will not yield to “blackmail” from President Barack Obama, after the administration on Friday released a directive notifying public school officials that transgender students must be allowed to use the restroom and locker room facilities corresponding with their gender identity.
“I believe it is the biggest issue facing families and schools in America since prayer was taken out of public schools,” Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick told reporters.
Obama’s policy “will divide the country not along political lines but along family values and school districts,” Patrick said.
“He says he’s going to withhold funding if schools do not follow the policy,” Patrick said, referring to the risk of schools losing federal funding if they do not adhere to the recommendations. “Well, in Texas, he can keep his 30 pieces of silver. We will not yield to blackmail from the president of the United States.” More
