Lawmaker to Push Bill
Requiring Dinesh D´Souza´s
´America´ Be Shown in Schools

Hollywood Reporter, by Paul Bond

Original Article

Posted By:Harlowe, 7/25/2014 11:22:48 AM

Florida GOP state senator Alan Hays said he’ll propose a bill mandating that students in the 1,700 Florida public high schools and middle schools are to be shown the film unless their parents object. A Florida state senator plans to introduce a bill that would make Dinesh D´Souza´s docudrama, America, required viewing for most teenagers in the state, The Hollywood Reporter learned on Friday. Republican Alan Hays said he’ll introduce in November his one-page bill that simply states that students in the 1,700 Florida public high schools and middle schools are to be shown the film unless their parents object.

Comments:
Should be mandatory viewing in all public schools and colleges throughout the country.

Bravo Other states should follow his lead. Lord knows, but it might help to offset the liberal/socialist propaganda being taught at present.

they forced my kids to watch that awful Al Gore movie about global warming. It was forced viewing for the last 7 years! I think they finally stopped forcing the kids to have to accept it as truth last year. But I am sure all those teachers are still showing it. I live in the SF Bay Area.

Fair is fair. If Michael Moore´s films and Al Gore´s film are being shown this should be available as well.

Yeah, let´s get the Feds to mandate one more thing. I don´t have any quarrel with it being included in the curriculum, but I´m not on board for this wrong-headed idea, even if I agree with the movie´s content.

#3 & #4 -- it was probably the local educrats that made that decision, not the Feds.

Why don´t these clowns put their energies into real problems? There are dozens of pressing issues that Congress ought to be addressing in a meaningful way, instead of parading their moral conceits which actually contradict the purpose and intent of a free society.

Misdirected indignation... I believe it´s the Florida State Senate that is considerring the legislation.

I saw the movie Monday, and was impressed. And I´d like everybody to see it! (The "believers" are the ones who are flocking to see it, I´m sure.) I´m a little skeptical that legislation should mandate a viewing, however.

You´re right, #9 -- missed that.

But I still think even a state mandate is wrong-headed for the same reason.

This magnificent documentary film presents historical facts about the USA which have been TOTALLY ignored by the lefty/lib´s history revisionists. It is a current MUST SEE!!! All students need the truth about America as they will learn the good far outweighs the bad. ´´America...,´´ reminds us, ´freedom isn´t free.´ America´s Constitutional compass goal & the heart of the American people have always cherished life, Liberty and Justice for ALL.

#8-10,#9 - IF the public education system provided a curriculum as existed until the 1960s, it would not be necessary to consider legislation to counter revisionist history now being used to indoctrinate students. Well-intentioned citizens have been exceedingly tolerant of the deliberate encroachment of a liberal agenda that now threatens the existence of this country’s freedoms and survival as intended by our Founding Fathers. Benjamin Franklin’s response to the woman who asked at the close of the Constitutional Convention of 1787: “Well, Doctor, what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy” “A Republic, if you can keep it.”

The elevator slides open and a large 2-by-3-foot dog photo welcomes you to the 29th floor. It’s Bark, Cleveland’s only indoor dog park — one of dozens of lifestyle amenities at the new Metropolitan Hotel in downtown Cleveland. Its very existence serves to underscore the playful whimsy that characterizes the new boutique hotel, which borrows from the legacy of the old Cleveland Trust Bank at E. Ninth Street and Euclid Avenue with double-take details paying tribute to the past. The just-opened hotel — officially called the Metropolitan at the 9 — is one of the iconic properties in the Autograph

COLUMBUS: Ohio´s elections chief says an early voting decision from a federal judge must be appealed. Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted (HYOO´-sted) says the ruling could lead to different rules for voting across the swing state´s 88 counties. U.S. District Judge Peter Economus on Thursday blocked an Ohio law that trims early voting, ordering Husted to set an expanded voting schedule. The judge barred Husted from preventing boards from adopting additional early voting hours beyond his order.

COLUMBUS: A federal judge on Thursday temporarily blocked an Ohio law that scales back early voting, ordering the state’s elections chief to set additional voting times just ahead of the fall election. The ruling from U.S. District Judge Peter Economus comes in a lawsuit filed by civil rights groups, several predominantly black churches and others challenging two early voting measures in the perennial presidential battleground state. One is a directive from Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted that established uniform early voting times and restricted weekend and evening hours.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) is putting a call out to the American people: He needs help to kill President Barack Obama’s plans to grant executive amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.

President Barack Obama has declined to attend a dedication ceremony in October for a new memorial honoring American veterans who have been disabled fighting for their country in wars, according to sources close to the event. The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial (AVDLM), the first such memorial of its kind, is set to be dedicated during a ceremony on Oct. 5 near the National Mall in downtown Washington, D.C. However, Obama, who was first invited to attend the event in January, will not be among those in attendance, according to a source who is familiar with the situation. This

A fight allegedly broke out at a house party most of the Palin family was attending on Saturday night in south Anchorage, when daughter Willow´s ex-boyfriend Connor Cleary tried to get in a Hummer limousine after engaging in some unspecified ´questionable behavior´. Sarah´s eldest son Track left the fight with four broken ribs and husband Todd suffered a bloody nose. RealClearPolitics spoke with a source close to the

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton.

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

He is best known for his 1971 recording of Christian hymn Morning Has Broken, a top 10 hit in both the UK and US. Stevens had a number of other hits during

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and

The Obama administration is preparing to introduce major steps to phase out production of a popular chemical coolant used in refrigerators and air conditioners, citing growing evidence that the substance is contributing to the warming of the planet. The White House will announce on Tuesday a series of voluntary commitments by some of the country’s largest chemical firms and retailers to move rapidly away from R-134a and similar compounds used in nearly every office, home and automobile in the country, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort.

Bill Clinton never inhaled. Rush Limbaugh says he never smoked it. Marco Rubio won´t answer whether he ever did smoke pot but Sarah Palin admitted she smoked it in her youth and didn´t like it. Those pushing to have more states legalize marijuana consider this drug rather harmless, medically beneficial and liberal politicians consider this issue one that will attract voters. I don´t blame Rubio for not discussing whether he indulged n his youth or not. He is a public official with young children and carries a different responsibility than the rest of us. My own experience with marijuana was somewhat similar

The New York Democrat said she was enraged when the politician had the gall to tell her she was too fat to win election after giving birth to her second child. “I had to just sit there and talk to him,” Gillibrand said in the interview, posted on the Huffington Post. “I switched the subject and I didn’t hear another word he said, but I wasn’t in a place where I could tell him to go f–k himself.”

Just call her a pit bull without lipstick! Sarah Palin is proving she has a sense of humor about the makeup-free photos that surfaced this week. On Monday, the 50-year-old politician was photographed by paparazzi looking fresh-faced without any cosmetics on. But instead of getting mad about the slyly snapped no-makeup shots, the former Alaska governor took to Facebook to joke about the incident. "Feel bad for the poor paparazzi hounding outside my truck this morning hoping to capture a tabloid ‘exclusive´ of me coming out of Bikram Hot Yoga.
