Watch the video and if this doesn’t prove how far in the “dark” lawmakers are with the inability to address what is really going on in the country and in this case Tennessee I don’t know what does. I had to kind of laugh with the use of the word “Gateway” here as that is a commonly used “tech” term and is used with access servers, virtual servers and so on. This was just too funny to see the word used in this form.
I didn’t know we are creating “gateways” for sex now:) Really this is so funny and I’m sure others in technology have to give this a real chuckle as well. The sad part of all of this is the digital illiteracy of lawmakers that have no clue how to make laws today and technology is just flat out eating their lunch. We live in a new era today and to sit in denial and be a “non participant” with technology today hurts others too. I wish some would read up on what a “gateway” is. There’s a lot of folks out there who can help educate them too such as doctors who use “gateways” all the time for access to electronic medical records. Here’s one more great example from a couple weeks ago that shows more digital illiteracy, as they just have to “control” something….

Holding hands and kissing could be considered “Gateway Sex”. No condoms on bananas anymore. “Groin Central Station”…his description here is great.

I just wonder if they even think about how they look to the rest of the world, and seriously it’s like a bunch of “loose cannons” running around and of course a “digital formatted law” would probably even be a bigger crime <grin>. This is why I started my series on the Attack of the Killer Algorithms to help educate the public on how processes and formulas run on servers 24/7 making life impacting decisions about all of us and is basically the underlying factor for the “Occupy” movement. What does one do when you can’t speak to that algorithm or query or yet even reach customer service folks sometimes that work for companies that use them, and they all do.

We have huge problems with lawmakers, judges, you name it all over the country here and there are a few that are not naïve or that sit in denial but the number of those versus the digitally illiterate are small. No wonder the rest of the world has to laugh at us at times when we see nonsense as such and it just doesn’t stop as all you have to do is read the news.
Business analytics are used by banks, corporations, etc. and some generate “accurate” results while others focus on “desired” results, especially when it comes to money and the two should be the same, but they are not. Just read the news and there are many articles about this topic as some are now starting to dig in and check those algorithms for accuracy as there has been no regulation on how code moves money for the most part and quants have been busted by the SEC for this. Back to the law, if Colbert didn’t do it for you, here’s a news report and listen to the digitally illiterate discuss the topic. We are truly in big trouble all over the US with folks on the wrong track and it’s becoming a major circus. Read below that all but one GOP member voted for the bill and really think hard about who and what your electing in the future please! BD
In Tennessee politicians continue to try and legislate morality, instead of making reality-based decisions to address social problems such as teen pregnancy and STDs, with depressing if predictable results: Tennessee ranks 8th worst in the nation for teenage pregnancy. In fact, states with abstinence-only policies ranked dead last.
Legislation banning teachers from promoting or condoning “gateway sexual activity” is headed to the governor’s desk after approval by the state House of Representatives on Friday.
The bill, which passed the full Senate earlier this month, would require all state sexual education classes to “exclusively and emphatically” promote abstinence while banning teachers from promoting any form of “gateway sexual activity.” The latter term, which has garnered national media attention and been lampooned by comedian Stephen Colbert, is not specifically defined in the bill.
The vote was 68-23, with all but one Republican for it.
