    Mandatory fingerprinting and background checking of teachers is needed.
    Some accused teachers are out on bail for three years before their crimes can be adjudicated.
    Currently, more than 50 teachers in North Carolina are waiting to go to court for sex crimes and they can still legally teach children.

    My theory is the USA, UK, and Israel are all controlled by the same mob.

    Their plans are beginning to unravel due to the strength of Russia. Fighting Russia to the last Ukranian isn’t going to work, so the next step is using UK forces.

    However, a war with China is on their radar too, so it’s a very fluid situation.

    Amazed how easy it was to get in. The fly screen door was easy, the glass door took a bit of oomph…then the latch just broke. Looking at it, it was just cast aluminium and not billet. Sh*t to be honest.

    As for security issues, I don’t want to live somewhere that needs cast iron doors.

    I did, though, in Yurong Street, East Sydney in the late 1970s. It was in an area well known for prostitution and gangsters. It was being ‘gentrified’ at the time.

    My front door, which opened straight on to the street, had steel plates top to bottom on the inside.

    It was two up, two down. Living room as you came in, kitchen behind, two tiny bedrooms above. Out the back, a lean-to with a bathroom and toilet, rough concrete floor.

    Why Christians shouldn’t bow to “homosexual marriage”

    Currently, Church of England members of the clergy are not permitted to carry out same-sex marriages, whilst homosexual Anglicans are required to remain celibate. In recent years, however, the Church of Wales, the Scottish Episcopal Church, and, most recently, the Methodist Church, have all embraced marriage equality. In February 2023, the General Synod met to discuss the issue, raising the question across the Anglican Communion and Christendom: should Christianity extend the sacraments to same same-sex marriages?

    March 7th 2023

    The Honorable Joseph R. Biden
    President of the United States
    The White House 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
    Northwest Washington, DC 20500

    Dear President Biden:

    It has been reported that Novak Djokovic has formally applied and been denied permission from your administration to enter the United States so that he may compete at the upcoming Miami Open tennis tournament. This denial is unfair, unscientific and unacceptable. I urge you to reconsider. It’s time to put pandemic politics aside and give the American people what they want — let him play.

    While Mr. Djokovic is surely a supreme competitive threat to his fellow tennis professionals, his presence in our country poses no meaningful health or public safety risk. I note that since the onset of COVID-19, Mr. Djokovic has visited the United States at least twice – including once during your presidency – without any apparent health incident. It is also not clear to me why, even by the terms of your own proclamation, Mr. Djokovic could not legally enter this country via boat. Please confirm no later than Friday March 10th 2023 that this method of travel into Florida would be permissible.

    Furthermore, even as you enacted the Proclamation on air travel that remains in force to this day, your administration pointedly allowed thousands of unvaccinated migrants to enter our country through the southern border. In sum, the current ‘travel ban’ as applied to Mr. Djokovic and presumably millions of other potential unvaccinated foreign visitors seems completely ungrounded in logic, common sense, or any genuine concern for the health and welfare of the American people.

    Affectionately known as ‘Tennis’s Fifth Grand Slam’, the Miami Open is the second most popular tennis event in the United States and routinely attracts hundreds of thousands of fans as well as premier tennis professionals from around the world. Novak Djokovic, as you surely know, is the most accomplished tennis player in history and the reigning top-ranked player in his sport. As a result of his illustrious career and philanthropic efforts, he has a strong following of loyal fans in the United States. There can be no question that his inclusion in the Miami Open would be a tremendous boon both for this treasured tournament and the tennis community at large.

    The only thing keeping Mr. Djokovic from participating in this tournament is your administration’s continued enforcement of a misguided, unscientific, and out-of-date COVID-19 vaccination requirement for foreign guests seeking to visit our great country. American tennis legend John McEnroe recently termed this restriction “absurd”. He was quite right to say so.

    We are now three years since the onset of COVID-19, and we have learned many valuable – and often painful – lessons during that time. For one thing, it is now clear that the COVID-19 vaccines are not as effective as initially advertised. A new study in the Lancet has found that natural immunity is at least as effective as the Covid vaccines. (“Our analysis of the available data suggests that the level of protection afforded by previous infection is at least as high, if not higher than that provided by two-dose vaccination using high-quality mRNA vaccines.”) Furthermore, data also suggest that exposure to COVID-19 is now significantly less likely to result in hospitalisation or fatality. Finally, not only is the efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccine now in question, but recent scientific studies have identified serious potential health risks from the vaccine. Florida’s Surgeon General has issued guidance recommending against the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines for males ages 18-39 years old – precisely the cohort of Mr. Djokovic.

    Here in Florida, we took a leadership role in rejecting vaccination mandates. Since November 2021, it has been illegal for businesses to require their patrons to be vaccinated against COVID-19. I am proud of these efforts, which unquestionably promoted personal liberty and economic growth without exposing our citizens to any substantiated harm. Although it has taken some time, most of the rest of the world has now come to recognise COVID-19 vaccination requirements as obsolete. At present, it appears that the United States is one of only a handful of countries that requires foreign visitors to have received a COVID-19 vaccination. Indeed, in an interview on September 18th 2022, you personally declared that “the pandemic is over”, and your administration has already communicated to Congress that the COVID-19 emergency will formally end on May 11th. The time has come to give up the fiction that Covid vaccines remain a necessary tool to promote public health.

    Mr. Djokovic is an extraordinary tennis player who should have every right to compete in this year’s Miami Open, which will commence on March 20th. I respectfully ask you to grant his requested exemption so that he may delight and inspire tennis fans in Florida and around the Nation.
