Meet & Greet Beth Humenik

Florida Senator Alan Hays is about to propose a bill that would require all schools in his state to show conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza’s movie – America. However, the film will not be mandatory for students whose parents don’t want them watching it.

From the Hollywood Reporter:

The plan is sure to draw fire from liberals not only because D’Souza is a prominent conservative but because he is also behind the movie, 2016: Obama’s America, which is a profoundly negative take on Democratic U.S. president Barack Obama.

Hays said the purpose of his proposal is to introduce more balance into Florida schools.

D’Souza’s film America focuses on teaching the history of the United States from a patriotic perspective. In addition, the film highlights America as one of the greatest ideas throughout the history of civilization.

Senator Hays said of his efforts:

“The most dreaded disease in America today is political correctness. We need to inform our students of our whole history, and teach them how to think, not what to think,” 

Whether Hays’s bill ends up passing is up for debate. But in a public education system run nearly exclusively by the Democrat Party, it would be refreshing to know students were being taught a different point of view. It appears Senator Hays just wants to even the playing the field by mandating America to be shown in schools.

We can only hope lawmakers keep an open mind when the bill is ready to go through Florida’s legislature. Because as Abraham Lincoln said ofeducation, “Upon the subject of education, not presuming to dictate any plan or system respecting it, I can only say that I view it as the most important subject which we as a people can be engaged in.”

Presented by The Reagan Club of Colorado

This was the theme at the 2014 Western Conservative Summit, held in Denver on July 18 thru July 20th and sponsored by the Centennial Institute, the Colorado Christian University’s Think Tank.

If you got to attend the “Summit” . . . you know that the theme could mean many things, but the primary meaning was that “America’s Best Days are the vision and mission fueling the enthusiasm of today’s conservatives Americans.”

The Reagan Club of Colorado was there . . . and one of the consistently recurring ideas was the values, ideals and leadership of Ronald W. Reagan. Our 40th President passed away 10 years ago; and has been out of office for 28 years . . . why the perennial memories and enduring admiration for President Reagan?

The Western Conservative Summit featured Reagan in publicizing the event . . . showing President Reagan from his 1964 speech, “A Time for Choosing”. . .

Where, then, is the road to peace? Well it’s a simple answer after all.

You and I have the courage to say to our enemies, there is a price we will not pay.  There is a point beyond which they must not advance.

There’s something going on in time and space, and beyond time and space, which,  whether we like it or not, spells duty. You and I have a rendezvous with destiny.

In the book “11 Principles of a Reagan Conservative”, Dr. Paul Kengor listed the foundation of Ronald Reagan’s life and presidency. One of them was “Belief In The Individual”

The importance of the individual to the history and success of our great land is undeniable – in spite of the rhetoric of the progressives and anti-American Tradition types.

The Reagan Club of Colorado is a group of and from the “grassroots” – and is committed to supporting the informing, involving and strengthening the individual and the families and communities in which they live and love.

To that aim – The Reagan Club of Colorado is throwing a BBQ that will focus on what makes America Her Best . . . faith, family and friends . . . for conservative voters of Adams County and the surrounding area.

The event will be a catered event – with “gourmet treatment” of those classic BBQ favorites . . . Grilled
Hamburgers and Hot Dogs. This includes toppings and side dishes that will delight the taste buds – while you share an enjoyable evening with other conservatives.

We are offering a substantial discount for tickets – if you pay online (http://www.reaganclubco.com/august-7th-meeting-tickets/) before August 5th at midnight.

After initially supporting incumbent Sen. Mark Udall (D., Colo.), through the first quarter of this year, oil and natural gas companies have since overwhelmingly supported his challenger, Rep. Cory Gardner (R., Colo.), over Mr. Udall.

Mr. Udall was among this election cycle’s top recipients of oil and gas money through March, having received $201,550 from the sector, according to Federal Election Commission data compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics up to March. At that time,  Mr. Gardner, who announced at the end of February his intent to challenge Mr. Udall after getting three other GOP candidates to bow out of a potentially bruising Republican primary, had received just $79,300 from the oil and gas industry for his House re-election bid.

Since Mr. Gardner entered the Senate race, the oil and gas industry has been pouring money into Mr. Gardner’s campaign. Between the first and second quarters, the industry gave $223,600 to Mr. Gardner and just $41,460 to Mr. Udall, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Continue reading
