Bill introduced in Idaho that makes
reading ´Atlas Shrugged´a requirement
for graduation

American Thinker, by Rick Moran

Original Article

Posted By:addicted_to_coffee, 2/7/2013 11:42:00 AM

Reading Ayn Rand´s "Atlas Shrugged" may become a requirement for high school graduation in Idaho if Coeur d´Alene Senator John Goedde, chairman of the Idaho Senate´s Education Committee, decides to pursue the matter. Goedde introduced a bill with the requirement but doesn´t appear serious about pushing it:

Comments:
Moran´s comments about "Atlas Shrugged" are accurate though a bit harsh. What we need is an author to take up the challenge of writing something entertaining, informative, and pro-capitalism.

When I recommended that book for the summer reading list for my daughter´s high school, I thought the adviser would have a stroke.

I would prefer they require Lott, Friedman and Hayak.

Atlas Shrugged is a novel.

Agree with #3, ´The Road to Serfdom´ should be required reading. Although literacy itself sees scarcely a requirement in public schools today.

I think everyone should read Atlas Shrugged. The description of the company that paid according to needs rather than money, and its implications, is unsurpassed, as is the affect of government interventions on productive people. Then keep reading: Hayek, Mises, Ronald Reagan, Milton Friedman. And there is more.

Atlas Shrugged and almost all Ayn Rand´s books have a twisted view of relationships. There is one that´s ok, but I can´t remember the name and my computer´s acting up right now. I homeschooled my son and knowing that Atlas Shrugged had some in it that was sex and her view of it, that I, without checking it out, decided to do the one about the healthcare in Communist Russia (again, I forget the name), but it was even worse than A.S. Yes, we need more conservative writers writing things that school aged kids can read without being exposed to sexual situations at all. Sorry, I may be overprotective, but I believe our children are already oversexualized by tv, movies, and music.

Good idea, and let´s add the Bible, the Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution to the list. 250 years ago, these were the only books/documents many people read. And it was enough for them. We could add the Magna Carta to the list as well. When they´re finished with that, add "Liberty and Tyranny" and "Ameritopia" by Dr. Levin. :-)

Rand is bitter medicine for the soft- hearted.

Her cold-rolled logic can be tough.

Her ideas are for adults only and so many people never become adults in an ethical sense.

They are reduced to lives as Democrats.

Legislators picking literature for students to read is a really bad idea. And you don´t even want to know what the curriculum guide for something like Ayn Rand might be. Anthem is read fairly often, it is popular with students because it is short and easily read.

The film series based on Rand´s book is also an excellent vehicle to help understand capitalism and why it is the best system for maintaining the inherent freedoms of each individual to explore, do their own research and even build something which benefits everyone.

This vital message regarding the USA´s historic & amazingly successful economic system is lacking in todays´ BIG Government statists´ agenda, which is why it is so needed to be heard by all Americans, especially young people, if indeed America´s goal is still securing the liberty of each individual equally on a, ´level playing field,´ without oppressive & outrageous micro-management, favoritism & dictates from ´central planning!´

Thus, if Constitutional America the Beautiful is to continue the support for each individual´s liberty, justice & opportunity to work & prosper, this country can use all of the merited reminders regarding the principles of freedom upon which this country was established it can get!!! As it is, the radical lefty/lib/dem statists apparently have the PC arena´s microphone. -YIKES!!!

While I´m a fan of the message contained in the book, I think we need a condensed version of about 150 pages. By the time I got to John Galt´s speech I was complaining, "Not again! I´ve heard all this several times already."

A condensed version that tells the story of the 20th century motor company would suffice. And I liked the spooky ending where the long abandoned factory had Galt´s perpetual motion motor still running.

A.S. is an outstanding novel and Francisco D´Anconia´s "Money Speech" is, if you´ll pardon the expression, priceless.

Though I would suggest Idaho make reading the D of I, Constitution and autobiographies of the Founders requirements, too.

Assigning Atlas Shrugged would accomplish one thing--it would help sleep deprived teens catch up on their z´s. I would go along with a truncated version as suggested by a previous poster.

A document with direct correlation between the corrupt govt. in the book and our Federal govt. would be in order. The students need not just the information but how it happens in reality.

Ignoring the govt. corruption in such an endeavor is like leaving the food off the table at a banquet!

California´s Brown

In a year when California Democrats are worried about motivating their voters, Gov. Jerry Brown heard another unwelcome message Saturday: Some Democratic activists are bristling over his administration´s policies on hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. Appearing at a state Democratic Party convention in Los Angeles, Brown found himself forced to speak over a noisy group of sign-waving protesters in his first major campaign speech since formally declaring his candidacy last month.

Republicans fighting a yearslong unionization effort at the Volkswagen plant in Tennessee painted a grim picture in the days leading up to last week’s vote. They said if Chattanooga employees joined the United Auto Workers, jobs would go elsewhere and incentives for the company would disappear. Now that workers have rejected the UAW in a close vote, attention turns to whether the GOP can fulfill its promises that keeping the union out means more jobs will come rolling in, the next great chapter in the flourishing of foreign auto makers in the South.

Resist the Siren’s Call of ’Originalism’
Bloomberg.com, by Cass R. Sunstein    Original Article

“Originalism” is an influential theory of constitutional interpretation. In the 1960s, Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black, a prominent liberal, marched proudly under the originalist banner. In the modern era, originalism is championed by Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas, the court’s most conservative members. In its least attractive form, practiced by politicians rather than judges, originalism is ideological posturing with a constitutional veneer -- a naive or cynical way of attributing the views of the current political right to the Constitution’s ratifiers. But for all those who seek to restrain judicial power, originalism should be attractive. At the same time, the

One of the best arguments for health-insurance reform is that our traditional employer-based system often locked people into jobs they wanted to leave but couldn´t because they feared they wouldn´t be able to get affordable coverage elsewhere. This worry was pronounced for people with pre-existing conditions but not limited to them. Consider families with young children in which one of the parents would like to get out of the formal labor market for a while to take care of the kids. In the old system, the choices of such couples were constrained if only one of the two received employer-provided family

It´s been decided that vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications, which allow cars and trucks to "talk" with one another and their surroundings, will move from just research to actual implementation thanks to a recent approval. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) wants to put V2V technology in all new cars and trucks as a way of avoiding traffic accidents and fatalities. For example, your car could let you know that another vehicle ahead is about to blow through a stop sign in an attempt to avoid a crash.

Bakken Crude More Dangerous

Crude oil produced in North America’s Bakken region may be more flammable and therefore more dangerous to ship by rail than crude from other areas, a U.S. regulator said after studying the question for four months. The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration announced its preliminary conclusion three days after a BNSF Railway Co. train carrying oil caught fire after a collision in Casselton, North Dakota. The regulator “is reinforcing the requirement to properly test, characterize, classify, and where appropriate sufficiently degasify hazardous materials prior to and during transportation,” it said in a statement posted on its website today.

A group of 10 U.S. Senators introduced a bipartisan bill on Thursday to eliminate the corn ethanol mandate, arguing that current law raises the cost of food and animal feed and damages the environment. The bill, introduced by Dianne Feinstein, a California Democrat; Tom Coburn, an Oklahoma Republican; and eight cosponsors, faces an uphill battle as many lawmakers from agricultural states support the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS)that dictates that rising volumes of ethanol made from grains, including corn, be blended into motor fuel.

American football is a violent game and it is rare that one ends without injury. A dislocated shoulder, broken ribs, cracked collarbones, or a torn ACL -- this and more is what we watch on the weekends. Aiming for the quarterback is axiomatic. If defenders can hurry, shake, or hurt the quarterback, he can lose his rhythm or be driven from the game, leaving the offense in the hands of a second or even third-string player.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
