2015 Parental Rights Bill filed in the State of Florida Legislature!
Rep. Michael Bileca has courageously undertaken our cause in the House of Representatives to sponsor Parental Rights Bill HB 737. In the Senate, Sen. Thad Altman has done the same with SB 1532. We are thankful for these legislators and their efforts. Please extend your gratitude to them by clicking their names above, and sending them a thank you note via e mail.
This is a huge development in the story line of advancing the cause of Parental Rights in Florida. This bill revises existing Florida Law to establish the right of a parent to make decisions regarding upbringing, education and care of their child AS A FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT. It does so all the while while protecting kids at risk, because it continues to allow the state to protect children when they are truly in jeopardy. But this law requires specific findings to be produced to overcome the fundamental right parents would have. It takes away the leeway that currently exists for state agencies to act arbitrarily.
To pass this legislation, it will require Passage through certain committees. The individuals who chair these committees decide what bills get discussed, and thus passed through to the house for a vote. So this next step is critical to the life of this effort for 2015.

Dear Rep. (Their Last Name),
This e mail is to express my strong support for HB 737 - The Parental Rights Bill. I support it because I believe that Parents should have a fundamental right to direct the care, upbringing and education of their children. This bill has been assigned to the committee that you currently chair. I respectfully ask that you allow HB 737 (Parental Rights Bill) to be discussed and voted on in your committee.
I look forward to seeing HB 737 Parental Rights Bill passed as Law in Florida this year!
Psychologist Margaret Hagen, a professor and medical industry insider, details the very real danger of this booming business. In every state, a child can be taken away from a parent on the strength of five minutes of "neutral" testimony from a social worker. A criminal suspect's freedom or incarceration can depend on a superficial psychological examination performed by an incompetent, overworked, or, at worst, paid-off psychologist. Parole hearings hinge on the testimony of similarly incomplete or fraudulent evaluations, allowing "rehabilitated" violent criminals back onto the street to commit more heinous crimes, with no accountability for the reviewing "expert." Unmasking some legal psycho-expertise as a total fraud, Dr. Hagen instructs readers to protect themselves and their families from being victimized by psychological testimony in the courtroom. In today's frenzied legal climate, her insight and wisdom make for provocative, compelling and invaluable reading. http://www.amazon.com/Whores-Court-Psychiatric-Testimony-American/dp/0060391979
Attorney David Schorr slapped a court-appointed shrink with a defamation lawsuit for telling the judge deciding a custody battle with his estranged wife that he was an unfit parent — for refusing to take his son to the fast food joint for dinner.
Dad Unfit Parent Says Court-Appointed Shrink
“You’d think it was sexual molestation,” Schorr, 43, told The Post Thursday. “I am just floored by it.” Schorr says in his Manhattan Supreme Court suit that E. 97th Street psychiatrist Marilyn Schiller filed a report saying he was “wholly incapable of taking care of his son” Liarand should be denied his weekend visitation over the greasy burger ban. Schorr, a corporate attorney turned consultant with degrees from NYU and Oxford University, had planned to take his 4-year-old son to their usual restaurant, the Corner Café on Third Avenue, for his weekly Tuesday night visitation last week.

I'm rarely this effusive, but let me be clear -- I believe these pro se litigants have lifted the mechanical, soul-sucking drudgery of preparing a complaint into the lofty realms of high art.
Indeed, these visionaries should be applauded for confronting and challenging the reader, and for daring to radically reimagine -- nay -- forquite literally unshackling us -- from the small-minded, restrictive and fundamentally bourgeois chains of Rule 8(a).
I'm fairly certain Judge King will see it the same way, don't you agree?
