Floridian Republicans Trying to Pull a Fast One.

Republicans on the House Choice and Innovation Committee voted along party lines Tuesday to pass a bill that aims to stamp out “leftist totalitarianism” by “dictator professors” in the classrooms of Florida’s universities.

Well, well, well...another case when the "typically conservatives" Republicans want to have government interference. Wheeeew, I thought the goal/lie was a smaller government. And now, the new hot-topic issues are these over-the-top liberal, communist, knee-jerking, Democrat professors. Dammit no, those guys teaching whatever they want and expecting no interference...the nerve of those socialist.

Sadly, this is nothing more than a half-assed attempt to squash the Evolution agenda driving teachers. But, this attempt is so short sighted that it allows teaching to be suspended by a kid with an axe to grind.

Giving students the right to sue their professors because they disagree or feel they have been ridiculed for their beliefs may sound great on paper. Hell, it'll show those people for pushing their agenda. But it will give rise to poor education being allowed to sue.

Watch this. Say a kid is in a philosophy class. The teacher's final is give your stance on writing. If the kid turns in nothing but a paper filled with phallacies galore, regardless of the content, he would earn a failing grade. Agreed? It should be. But that kid could sue his teacher because he feels his beliefs were not respected. And even if the suit is tossed, the teacher would still have to pay legal fees, lost time for classes, etc.

And such a bill is so reckless because it allows students to sue if they disagree. Excuse me, but what is this type of thing teaching kids? After all, they could have a teacher tied up in a legal battle over the theory of gravi-friggin'-tation if he wanted to. It is not completely is possible for this outcome.

So I wonder how in the heck something so completely insane came about? Is this another case of the mole-hill being made into a mountain? Or is it really that bad in parts? I tend to disagree. After all, I have failed to see it in one of the two liberal pockets in the state of Louisiana. But what do you people think?
