Beyoncé: Sasha Fierce feminism

Beyonce leans against a wall wearing a black hat as she poses for a photo (Credit: Beyonce)Here's the deal: I am a huge Beyoncé fan.

From the first sounds of Destiny's Child, I was hooked. In high school, I memorized every run and ad-lib.  With windows rolled down in my A/C-less '84 BMW, I would scream all of the words to "Survivor," a song that described the core integrity and strength of a woman who refused to bow down to her offenders' ploys.

As a result, a senior-level employee with the Environmental Protection Agency was recently caught spending as much as six hours of his workday looking at porn. He had downloaded and viewed more than 7,000 pornographic files. Four months later, the employee is on leave but still being paid.

Meanwhile, a staffer at the Federal Communications Commission spent up to eight hours a week browsing porn at work, while a Treasury Department employee downloaded more than 13,000 pornographic images in a six-week span. This news prompted Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) to introduce a bill making porn viewing illegal for all federal employees while at work. His bill would require the Office of Management and Budget to issue guidelines prohibiting porn watching on federal computers.

Cathy said that he would like to be remembered as one who kept his “priorities in the right order.”  Let's examine his priorities.  Most people know that he kept his restaurants closed on Sundays so his employees could have a day of rest, honoring the biblical commandment to remember the Sabbath and keep it holy.  But that's not the only way that Cathy demonstrated his desire to keep things in order.
