Frank Hamilton Senate Czars-committee on culture,scary! (66* d) RE: Senate Czars-committee on culture,scary! 19 Sep 99

There was a senate resolution to make the "square dance" the national dance of America about five years ago. It went down to defeat, fortunately.

When senators try to legislate such stuff, they really run into problems. If (god forbid) W. Bush makes it into office, he might not veto some of this "moralistic" garbage but if Gore or Bradley make it, I doubt very much where any of it would become law. Even if it were, there would be many court cases challenging it by the ACLU. This is territory that has already been gone over in the past such as the court case involving obscenity and the book "Lady Chatterley's Lover" by DH Lawrence. I think it's a blow-hard prounouncement by certain Repbulcian senators to gain votes and political prominence. It comes up every now and again but the wisdom of the people usually prevails on this issue.
