It is religious bigotry. There is no doubt about it. Caught 'ya.

The entire presidency of "W" was based out of the support of the Religious Right. Unfortunately, the Religious Right tends to be the voting base in Texas. The more reasonable persons are found, in no surprise, the larger cities of the states.

All the radical ideas found in the Trump administration are also seen in "W"s, but, with different measure of extremism. Trump found his place among the Tea Party that rejected the establishment Republicans.

The changes in education (click here), immigration, acceptance of sexual identity differences, housing (click here) and environmental law (click here) is all based in religious bigotry.

The introduction of computer based learning in impoverished populations of the USA is to force more and more children out of public education. Additionally, we already know voucher programs are primarily to "advance God's kingdom." (click here) That is engineered and institutionalized religious bigotry. How many churches don't mind the federal money but reject federal agendas because of it's religious standing?

Immigration is obvious. (click here)

Rejecting the transgender identity of children is based in hate and religious bigotry. When children are rejected at any level of society, what does that mean for the rest of us?

The cut back in housing incentives directly targets the lower incomes in the country and what demographic is that? (click here) Fifty-eight percent of low income Americans (200% of poverty level) are minorities. 

Environmental law also seeking to turn the corner on "Environmental Justice." (click here) One guess to the demographics of these folks. The best example of religious bigotry (DO NOT ACCEPT SCIENTIFIC FACT) is the outcome of the people of Flint, Michigan to Snyder's Emergency Manager Law. The Michigan law was changed to include more than supporting educational infrastructure, it took over the entire elected infrastructure and caused profound damage to that city's infrastructure leading to deaths and brain damage; that is known.

All these changes in our government that protected citizens from greed have been removed, to put in place exploitative measures. The only defense the CITIZENS have are the states and local authorities that have been established over the past two decades. There was definitive measures made once "W" was elected, too.

The "W" administration and Trump administration is based on what ever can be exploited and gotten away with is fair game. Ha, ha, ha, I am rich, white and know it with God's permission.

Washington — President Trump (click here) on Wednesday rescinded protections for transgender students that had allowed them to use bathrooms corresponding with their gender identity, overruling his own education secretary and placing his administration firmly in the middle of the culture wars that many Republicans have tried to leave behind.

In a joint letter, the top civil rights officials from the Justice Department and the Education Department rejected the Obama administration’s position that nondiscrimination laws require schools to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms of their choice.

That directive, they said, was improperly and arbitrarily devised, “without due regard for the primary role of the states and local school districts in establishing educational policy.”

The question of how to address the “bathroom debate,” as it has become known, opened a rift inside the Trump administration, pitting Education Secretary Betsy DeVos against Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Mr. Sessions, who had been expected to move quickly to roll back the civil rights expansions put in place under his Democratic predecessors, wanted to act decisively because of two pending court cases that could have upheld the protections and pushed the government into further litigation....
