Florida Republican pushes bill to force sports teams to play national anthem -- or face punishment

Source: Raw Story

A Florida Republican lawmaker wants sports teams to know that playing "The Star-Spangled Banner" before games is not optional.

As noted by WFLA's Evan Donovan, Florida State Sen. Joe Gruters has introduced legislation that would bar governmental entities from entering into agreements with professional sports teams if they don't play the United States national anthem at the start of each game.

What do you want to bet that Sen. Joe doesn't know the words to it? What idiocy! I know it, two verses, and have been to the Smithsonian and Fort McHenry, both. Take you on anytime about American history, "senator."



Happy 100th birthday, Betty White. Love that it falls on MLK Day!

Two people that I love unconditionally. Will always miss them both.
