A bill passed last week sponsored by state Rep. Greg Bonnen, R-Friendswood, requiring an in-depth study of our nation’s foundational documents, is being heralded as a push back against “woke liberals” who want to minimize the role of the Founding Fathers. State Sen. Larry Taylor, R-Friendswood, whose district includes about half of Brazoria County, sponsored similar legislation in the upper chamber.

The legislation itself is not unreasonable. The in-depth study of documents such as the U.S. Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and the Federalist Papers is essential to understanding our nation’s starting point in terms of its freedoms. They are so important that they are already required by the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills curriculum.

Cherry picking history to fit a particular narrative is not helpful to anyone.

We should include ALL Americans who contributed to a better America. Not by woke or PC standards but by truth and men and women who loved what this nations stands for

Not those who sit and tear it apart. Those folks will never be happy

So do you feel we need to ignore the insurrection on 01/06 as they did not contribute to a better America? Lol you do bring humor to my day, thanks.

Agree we have the chewy picking happening everyday. The woke crowd tears down Lincoln statue. Woke crowd had the school named after Obama in Illinois changed . Just to name a few , while ignoring Robert Byrd, Lyndon Johnson and early dem party fighting Lincoln about slavery and against voting rights in the South

And of course you only put it on one party....tsk tsk. Clearly you are the cherry picker in this conversation.

Just sharing the truth and current actions to whom are trying to change history. Do you deny these facts about the dem party?

Somebody has to counter the dem media like Morris. If this were a dem Bill with rewriting history like woke and many colleges, he would have zero comment. Why? Because he agrees

So if he is going to cherry-pick this Bill, we can ask why none of this history current and past on the dem party is silent

You wouldn't know the truth if it came up and said, "Hi! I am truth." You'd deny it's existence.

Ha ha Native. We have one thing in common, we both believe each are indoctrinated and can’t see truth. Again are yiu saying this are false accusations of the dem party? Byrd wasn’t in the KKK, Johnson didn’t drop the N word publicly , they didn’t fight Lincoln against ending slavery. They didn’t invent the poll tax to prevent blacks from voting and fight against 60 voting rights Bill? If you don’t acknowledge these, you are in the dark. But I believe you Worship the Lord
