Posted by Stephen Smoot.. Liberal media biases charged back into the public conversation this week.. From all over, commentators slammed the mainstream press for ignoring the infamous Gosnell child murder case.. In other obvious bias news.. Columbia Journalism Review.. , a publication of Columbia University,.. slapped down.. a respected television news magazine for pushing an agenda based on “insufficient data and unsupported assumptions.. ".. As described by CJR, CBS's.. 60 Minutes.. used unsavory editing techniques for the Scott Pelley story "A.. mazon Crude.. " They used video of places and snippets of expert interviews to support a story that Texaco recklessly abused and endangered the environment of Ecuador.. Chevron Corporation, currently the ninth largest oil producer in the world, purchased Texaco in October 2000, accepting its  ...   Donziger to make statements based on “insufficient data and unsupported assumptions” provided by Donziger and others on the plaintiffs’ side.. Former CBS reporter and media expert Bernard Goldberg wrote in his 2002 book.. Bias: A CBS Insider Exposes How the Media Distort the News.. that in his experience, CBS did not usually intentionally inject bias.. He claimed that bias there came from the liberal-left orientation of the newsroom.. Since everyone there was liberal or left wing, they had no balance.. They saw their orientation as centrist and reported as such.. This particular piece, however, seems to show a reporter who has not nailed down the thesis of his story.. So they pressure experts in interviews, use film clips that do not match the narration, and go well beyond producing a product that could merely be dismissed as sloppy.. Why was the story stretched to such lengths as to threaten the show's credibility?.. The narrative is an old one.. Big bad American company trashes Third World nation.. Grab and go.. Chevron was supposed to be established in public perception as a dastardly company with no concern for the environment.. Diligence on the part of media watchdogs helped to save Chevron's reputation in this instance.. Interestingly, Chevron recently invested heavily in shale gas sites in the United States.. Environmentalists, despite studies to the contrary from Penn State and Duke University, have developed a storyline of shale gas drilling's threat to water supplies to fight against it.. It is not hard to speculate that if Chevron actually had adulterated water supplies in Ecuador, a case could be made that they could not be trusted to behave in Pennsylvania, Texas, or West Virginia.. Fortunately, the liberal agenda of this.. report was exposed.. But how many other stories go unexamined and feed into public opinion?.. Leave a comment.. Name.. *.. Email.. Homepage.. Comment..

    Descriptive info: Clemson YAF Under Attack from Professors.. 4/15/2013 11:29:49 AM.. Posted by Patrick Coyle.. Last week, we.. wrote about our YAF chapter at Clemson University.. in South Carolina and their 2nd Amendment Banquet.. In celebration of our 2nd Amendment rights, they will be having a drawing for an "assault" rifle, which has drawn a lot of media attention and outrage from some on the Left.. Nick James, the group's chairman, has come under fire on his Facebook page because of the event, from Clemson professors, no less.. Here is some of the arrogant hate:.. It's important to reiterate that this event has been sanctioned by the university and that the gun will not even be on campus when the giveaway takes place.. Anyone above the age of 18 can go out and purchase the same exact weapon anytime they wanted.. Nick's group has gone above and beyond to make sure that they have followed all the correct laws.. They are working through a licensed retailer who will conduct a background check on the winner.. If "Doctor" Coggeshall wants students to have a good sense of history, he should practice what he preaches.. April 19, 1775 was an important day in the history of our country.. The American Revolutionary War began on that day with the battles of Lexington and Concord.. Also, more reactions.. Some folks are embarrassed to be a Clemson graduate? Why? It's a student group, conducting an activity that has an OK from the school.. No illegal activity is going on here? You're embarrassed because people are following the rules, or are you just showing how inconsiderate you are of other people's views?.. Readers' Comments.. Dear Doctor Coggeshall, No firearms were used in the Oklahoma City bombing and Hitler s government confiscated weapons from Jewish German citizens.. But I don t have to tell you that, since you re a doctor and evidently superior to the rest of us.. Sincerely, Dr.. Joe McCoy.. Posted by Joe McCoy on 04/15/2013.. Hitler confiscated everyone s weapons.. This event is to make sure leftists don t get their way again!.. Posted by John Paul on 04/15/2013.. As a student at a university where they have ignored our request to start up a chapter of YAF or any other student political group on campus, I am so proud of what Clemson s chapter of YAF and chairman Nick James are doing.. People today are more ignorant than ever, and as a result of this has lost all ability to debate civilly and to take a look at the opposing views.. I have had several great discussions with people who are willing to calmly talk about gun control issues.. As a gun sportsman, hunter, NRA member, and concerned citizen of the United States of America, I am appalled by the direction of this country and the  ...   weapon is not a massacre waiting to happen, and not something just to defend yourself, those you love, and this country that we all love! A Student of a University that shoots down all political activism, Sam Hill.. It s hilarious how you can consistently count on Clemson s liberal faculty to use their bully pulpit to intimidate students.. It was the same story the last time a Clemson group tried to celebrate the Second Amendment with a firearm giveaway, and it was the same illogical arguments as well.. Just goes to show that you ruffle some feathers on a campus, you send the Left into a madman s hysteria.. Posted by ClemsonWASR on 04/15/2013.. So proud of Nick James and the rest of Clemson University s YAF chapter.. As a YAF chairman myself, I am encouraged and inspired to do a similar fundraiser on my campus next year.. What a wonderful idea to raise awareness during second amendment week, especially amidst all this gun control mumbo jumbo.. Keep it up Nick! This Dr.. Coggeshall is only an embarrassment to himself.. Clearly, he has no logical argument to offer.. Posted by ghm on 04/16/2013.. Apparently the good Doctor took his doctorate of letters at the College of Pompous Assery.. Brings back memories of our trials and tribulations as YAFers in the 1960s, when we took stands on the campuses of some awesomely leftist universities.. Stand strong, young YAF brothers and sisters! Bless you all.. Posted by df on 04/17/2013.. Speaking of history, John, does the date April 19, 1775 ring a bell with you? Or, does that have something to do with Hitler s birthday, too?.. Posted by Cam K.. on 04/18/2013.. Why would there be such great alarm.. When political powers seek to disarm.. Their true goal is but to subject.. Feigning that they would better protect.. Ignorance their favored weapon of choice.. And to silence dissenters who choose to give voice.. How best to eradicate freedom s high mission.. Than by lowering society s internal condition.. Destroy the foundations once highly respected.. Despotic ideas grow that we d long rejected.. Arrogance thinks it knows better than you.. What you should think, feel, say and then do.. Seek to know truth and soar to new heights.. Or surrender your arms then the rest of your rights.. Posted by Tom Green on 04/18/2013.. Mr.. Green, Thank you for your support of Young America s Foundation.. It was nice speaking to you on the phone today.. Your support will help us reach many more students on high school and college campuses.. Thank you for visiting YAF.. org and posting your poem above.. Cheri Cerame Young America s Foundation..

In June 2009, some of Ronald Reagan's friends shared their thoughts about our 40th President at the Reagan Ranch Roundtable held on the fifth anniversary of President Reagan's passing.. In attendance were retired California Highway Patrolman Dennis LeBlanc, Reagan biographer Lou Cannon, Secret Service Agent John Barletta and comedian Jonathan Winters.. He was a surprise addition to the panel and shared his Reagan anecdotes with his trademark humor.. Winters,  ...   Jonathan Winters, the rubber-faced comedian whose unscripted flights of fancy inspired a generation of improvisational comics, and who kept television audiences in stitches with Main Street characters like Maude Frickert, a sweet-seeming grandmother with a barbed tongue and a roving eye, died on Thursday.. He was 87.. A family friend, Joe Petro III, said he died Thursday evening at his home in Montecito, Calif.. , The Associated Press reported.. Here are some pictures from the Roundtable event:.. Winters will be sorely missed..

    Descriptive info: Michigan H.. S.. YAF Chapter Achieves Major Free Speech Victory.. 4/12/2013 11:17:51 AM.. By Brendan Pringle.. After a year-long free speech battle, the Young Americans for Freedom chapter at Grosse Pointe North High School has finally received approval for.. a flyer campaign.. that was rejected by former principal Tim Bearden.. In March 2012, the school's YAF chapter president, Grant Strobl, requested Bearden's approval of a "Respect ALL Women" flyer campaign, which highlighted conservative women like, Michelle Malkin and Sarah Palin, who had been verbally attacked by the Left.. The campaign was an effort to celebrate Women's History Month.. After glancing at one of the flyers, however, Mr.. Bearden deemed it "vitriolic" and "inappropriate," and barred the chapter from posting the fliers.. Interestingly enough, the "Black Power" display in the main campus bulletin board didn't have to go through the same approval process as the "Respect ALL Women" posters, permitting liberal staff members to put up "politically-related statements" without direct permission.. Grant fought back and exposed this hypocrisy of this decision on the Young America's Foundation blog.. It was subsequently picked up by several news outlets, including.. Breitbart.. ,.. The Daily Caller.. and Yahoo.. One year later, Grant has continued his fight and emerged victorious.. Bearden has been relieved of his duties, and the current principal-Mrs.. Murray-has allowed the posters to be placed on school walls with some minor adjustments to the original plan.. Murray requested that the YAF chapter post the "Define Yourself" posters next to all the "Respect All Women" posters in order to put them "in context.. The posters have been placed in the showcase at Grosse Pointe North, and have generated a significant amount of campus dialogue.. "We feel that this is a good step towards free speech and civic minded discussions on campus," Grant commented.. " Grant commented.. "These posters will provide the intellectual diversity that education has been lacking.. ".. Brendan Pringle is a development officer at Young America's Foundation.. Other systemic ieqetiunis that I am hard-pressed to solve:1) Bonding out of jail.. If I were arrested on all but the most heinous of crimes, I d be at the mercy of the local jail s processing time to get out, but little else.. I could probably make bail.. Also, I work a salaried job with sick/vacation/personal  ...   it s just one of many ieqetiunis that exist in the system, and c) I d prefer to select my own counsel, thanks.. Given a choice between a system where everybody gets free counsel from the wheel or whatever method their county uses, and choosing and paying out of your own pocket if you can, I think many people would choose to pay.. People tend to think they get what they pay for, so paid counsel is better, and I d want a defense attorney I ve judged to be competent on my own standards, not the Senate Bill 7 standards of my local judiciary..

    Descriptive info: Clemson Young Americans for Freedom to Give Away “Assault” Rifle.. 4/11/2013 10:53:40 AM.. by Nick James.. On April 19, the Clemson Young Americans for Freedom chapter.. will host its first ever Second Amendment Banquet.. and give away a free "assault" rifle.. The sad part about this event is that we can't even give the winner their prize the night of the event because firearms are banned from campus by state law.. This unfair restriction of our right to bear arms is one of the reasons our club decided to host this event.. The idea for this event all started with a discussion at a chapter meeting.. After months of planning, our big idea is finally coming to fruition.. Our main motivation in putting this event together has been the recent talk of gun registration, which aims to limit our Second Amendment rights.. The amendment states: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.. " The framers of our great nation took great care in how they worded our founding documents.. With this in mind, I focus on the final portion of the text "…the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.. " In my opinion, it doesn't get clearer than that:.. the right to own and use weapons should not be infringed.. But what is our government doing today?.. The current powers in Washington are trying to take away our "assault style rifles," put limits on our magazine capacity, and increase the cost and difficulty of owning a weapon.. Recent attempts at legislation have focused on a few, key issues.. First, there has been a strong push to outlaw menacing-looking rifles, which gun control proponents falsely label as "assault weapons.. " These guns are no different than any other firearm.. Sure they look a little more menacing and can be.. designed.. for tactical use, but I just can't fathom why this would make them illegal to own? Students on our campus have already made comments along the lines of "Opposing an assault weapons ban is one thing, but giving one away is totally different.. Second, the federal government also wants to limit our magazine capacity, this way when a group of criminals breaks into our homes, we have less ammunition with which to defend ourselves.. For this reason, my club has decided we will include a 25-round magazine with our gun, not the standard 10-round magazine.. Finally, some of the politicians in Washington want to put up more red tape before you can purchase a gun.. Again I quote, "…the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed", these acts are clearly unconstitutional.. Every extra background check and registration process the gun owner must go through further increases the cost of ownership.. Americans have a right to enjoy the benefits of gun ownership, whether it be hunting, sport shooting, or simply ensuring the safety of their homes and family.. Next week our banquet will bring awareness to the importance of the Second Amendment and help make people aware of the current movements against it.. The two key points I hope to call attention to are as follows: the Constitution directly protects our right to own weapons, and the officials in Washington shouldn't attempt to take that right away.. Secondly, no matter what laws you pass, the criminals are always going to have whatever kind of weapon they want, by definition, they disregard laws.. Don't strip good Americans of their right to bear arms and make our homes and families easy targets for those with no respect for the law.. Nick James is the chairman of Clemson University's Young Americans for Freedom chapter.. I WORK at Clemson, and the idea of putting a weapon such as this in the hands of student is not a political statement, it is creating an unsafe atmosphere at place where I - and many others - spend a great deal of time.. This is beyond stupid.. Just to prove a point? Let me take you up to Virginia Tech on day and show you the monuments, you malignant, pea brained dumbasses.. Posted by Robert McCrary on 04/14/2013.. The wild west mentality that fosters this kind of thinking has no place on a campus devoted to learning.. President Barker, please intervene to persuade these students to do something more constructive with their time.. Posted by John Witmer on 04/14/2013.. Thank you for supporting our rights! its great to see things like this going on.. Posted by Aaron Smith on 04/14/2013.. The only thing that guns on campus would do is allow one individual to intimidate another, such as I expect an A this semester.. Clemson is a seminary of higher learning; we are focused here on intellectual development, not the development of marksmanship.. President Barker should put an end to this ridiculousness: NO GUNS ON CLEMSON S CAMPUS!.. Posted by Theodore Taylor on 04/14/2013.. Though the Lefts reasons for implementing gun control measures can be infuriatingly nannyish, the principle is sound.. You are not as invincible as you think, with a gun, and criminals will only get more patient when selecting their opportunity to attack you.. Creating a government that we re not going to be afraid of should be our mission.. Posted by Bradley Yates on 04/14/2013.. Good choice of dates, Clemson Chapter of Young Americans for Freedom.. April 19th is the anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing.. It s also the day before Adolph Hitler s birthday.. Enjoy the banquet.. Posted by Mike Coggeshall on 04/14/2013.. It s interesting that those who want guns in everyone s hands focus only on the last part of the Second Amendment:.. I focus on the final portion of the text …the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.. Somehow, the phrase A well regulated Militia completely escapes their attention.. Posted by Meredith Walker on 04/14/2013.. I don t have very strong opinions on gun rights, but I am very much upset that 1) a student organization had the lack of foresight to understand just how unwise it is to give an assault rifle to a random, untrained student, 2) that our university has the lack of foresight to approve this, and 3) that our discussion of gun rights has led to giving out guns as if they are candy.. They re not.. Whether you think that guns kill or not, I think we can all agree that giving a gun away on a university campus is a big f*** you to the genuine concerns of everybody involved in this debate.. Bloody incredible.. Unacceptable.. Posted by John Christopher on 04/14/2013.. Yeah, this is a pretty appalling thing that you guys are planning.. While admittedly right leaning, our campus has always seemed to be a place that encourages civil dialogue.. The giving away of any weapon to any student (regardless of that weapon s appearance) seems to detract substantially from this dialogue.. Rather, it comes across as more of an attempt at ideological fear mongering.. I m personally all for revising the second amendment so that it encourages and empowers militias as opposed to individuals.. If  ...   all upper middle class, and all completely out of touch with the real world.. Free speech is a right I cherish, therefore, this young man can write what he wants, and blogs are legal.. However, this type of publicity is bad for a university trying to connect with a national, and international, population.. A university has every right to limit access to arms, much like public K-12 institutions prohibit weapons of any kind on campus.. These young people have every right to bear arms (and show their arse), but they don t have a right to bear them on campus.. I can t imagine any situation where students and faculty bearing arms would help further the university s mission.. Finally, you might ask the colleagues, widows, and orphans of the slain University of Alabama-Huntsville biology faculty members if they wish there were more guns on the UA-H campus in 2010.. Posted by Ryan Reardon on 04/15/2013.. The banquet is to inform people of their 2nd Amendment rights and to encourage gun safety! Will Thornhill did his research and is correct.. Ryan, like many liberals has to mention race?!?.. Posted by L Todd on 04/16/2013.. Would you explain the gun registration that you are concerned about?.. Posted by Meg on 04/16/2013.. Posted by Meg on 04/17/2013.. To James McCrary: 1.. It s worse than counterproductive to call people names because they disagree with you.. It doesn t convince them; it apparently exists to show the world just what a great guy you are that you feel strongly enough to call these students names.. Since it won t convince them, I can only conclude that doing so is merely self-serving.. 2.. Do you think that the use of such language makes this country more or less polarized? 3.. Do you seriously mean to suggest that this raffle makes the campus less safe? There is a prohibition against guns on campus.. Do you mean to suggest because one student now has one (more?) gun, the campus to which no one is allowed to bring guns is statistically less safe than it was before the raffle? If tomorrow I purchase a gun, take it to my home, and secure it there for purposes of self defense, is my town now statistically less safe than it was yesterday? If an intruder knows that I may well have a gun in my home for defense, is my house less secure than it was enforce I purchased the gun? To Ryan Reardon: good point about Huntsville (though, since you bring race into the matter, may I bring ideology into it and point out that that shooter would hardly be comfortable at a YAF meeting).. Would you agree that the students at Pearl River HS in Mississippi are glad that the Asst Principal had a.. 45 semiautomatic in his truck, which allowed him to confront and detain the shooter before he could kill more than two?.. Posted by Stephen on 04/17/2013.. Stephen, Actually yes, if you were to purchase a gun tomorrow, return home and secure it, you would statistically be less safe in your home.. This is especially true if you have more than four.. And I can t see how anyone would take your argument against using polarizing language seriously when you re supporting an event to give a controversial weapon to a University student for the sake of making a political point.. Finally, I have no reason to think that the shooter at UAH would have felt uncomfortable in a YAF meeting.. She could have been a faculty sponsor.. She, like this organization, seems to have not understood the connection between people shooting guns and gun crime.. Posted by Dylan on 04/18/2013.. The banquet is open to the public, not just students.. May I remind you, that there will also be some policemen at the banquet to share gun safety information.. Some of you have direful opinions/expectations of Clemson students! I am disappointed.. Also, Amy Bishop used a 9mm pistol, which can easily be concealed, at UAH.. Posted by L Todd on 04/18/2013.. Clemson U does not allow guns on campus - including events.. They ve already publicly stated that the winner will not receive the weapon on the night of the banquet.. Most of you commenting on this article are idiots.. Posted by Justin on 04/18/2013.. As a Clemson Alum ( 06), I am very proud of the students at YAF.. It gives me hope that there are still enough conservatives coming out of college that we may still survive as a country.. In Will Thornill s comments he makes excellent points.. The assault weapon in question is not an assault weapon.. It s nothing more than a scary looking.. 22.. If any of you enlightened bloggers would have noticed, Assault was emphasized in the title of the page to prove just how ridiculous the argument is; kind of tongue and cheek if you will.. Will those citing the 2nd amendment tell me anywhere in the Bill of Rights where it is inferred that these are not individual rights? If you had ever studied the constitution during your indoctrination and actually read any of the books on our Founding Fathers, you would have realized that EVERY right listed in the Bill of Rights, including the 2nd amendment, is meant to be an individual right and it is those individuals that formed the militia.. Of course I doubt you would have ever studied this if you studied something like anthropology ‘Doc’.. Unfortunately I just found out about the banquet and will not be able to attend tonight, but know that there are several alums that have your back.. Keep up the good work and good luck educating the enlightened folk.. Posted by Shawn Pauley on 04/19/2013.. Your logic is flawed, and it brigns into question your ability to properly use research methods.. The absence of a person with a gun to stop the Westroads shooter cannot logically be used as evidence that guns can help stop such violent attacks.. Unless you can prove that a person was kept from bringing in a gun to Westroads, your hypothesis is mere speculation.. Again, the absence of a fact (a person with a gun could have stopped the shooter)cannot be used to make a leap in logic that had something taken place, i.. e.. , a person with a gun could have stopped the shooter, the shooting would not have taken place.. In simpler terms, the fact that guns are banned from Westroads is no evidence whatsoever that if guns were allowed in Westroads, the shooting would have been any less likely whatsoever.. Your logic is flawed, presumably because to support your thesis, you need to make such unsupported leaps in logic that are pure nonsense.. More guns are bad.. Less guns are good.. In this case, security should have had guns, and they should have had the courage to stop someone who they saw with a huge bulge in his jacket, which they admit to have seen prior to the shooting.. And I also see no reason why it took dispatchers two minutes to call out an officer after getting the 9-11 call for the shooting.. That seems like a very very slow dispatch time..

    Descriptive info: High School Cancels Santorum Speech Because of Ideology.. 4/9/2013 4:44:23 PM.. An upcoming speech by former presidential candidate Rick Santorum has been canceled by a school district in Michigan, citing an unwillingness to accept the former Pennsylvania senator's supposed "divisive" stances on traditional marriage.. In a phone call with Young America's Foundation's Vice President Patrick Coyle on Monday, Grosse Pointe Public School System Superintendent Dr.. Thomas Harwood will not allow the already-approved speech at Grosse Pointe South Public High School by Santorum because of the senator's stances on some policy issues, namely traditional marriage and education.. The school's Young Americans for Freedom group, the chapter affiliate of Young America's Foundation, invited Santorum to the school.. "The Freedom chapter came to us and wanted to see if Senator Santorum could come to the high school and speak to the students.. Weeks ago, I participated in a call with the school principal, Dr.. Matt Outlaw, and the chapter chairman, Langston Bowens.. During the call, Outlaw signed off on the event," Coyle said.. But on Monday's call, Superintendent Harwood told Coyle that they were canceling the event.. Coyle explained to Harwood that the school district already approved Senator Santorum's speech and its topic on leadership.. But when Senator Santorum's speech was announced, teachers within the school district sent videos to administrators showcasing some of Senator Santorum's past statements on traditional marriage and education.. As the conversation continued, Coyle said that the administrators became more and more agitated as Coyle hopelessly explained that Senator Santorum's speech would be about leadership.. Harwood then said  ...   members that shared additional information about the potential speaker.. Based on this information and a few other items, I am announcing that we are declining the invitation to have Rick Santorum speak to our student body.. Harwood is very supportive of this decision and we feel that we were mislead.. [sic].. in a few areas with this.. Peter Fox [the vice chairman of Young Americans for Freedom], in particular, was amazing through this process and showed such maturity today as we declined the invitation for the speech.. I am so sorry for the angst that this may have caused, but please plan for a regular day of school on April 24th.. Matt Outlaw.. "Education is based on the free flow of ideas.. I am disappointed with the position the school has taken regarding the proposed event, and I stand fully behind YAF," Grosse Pointe South YAF vice chairman Peter Fox said.. Squelching freedom of speech isn't new in this school district.. At Grosse Pointe North High School, YAF chairman Grant Strobl.. wanted to hang "Respect All Women".. posters in the high school to celebrate Women's History Month, but the school principal, Tim Bearden, initially refused to sign off on the posters because he found them "vitriolic and inappropriate.. " This week, however, the posters were finally approved, only after being heavily modified.. On Tuesday, Bowens met with Outlaw, who, according to Bowens, remains supportive of bringing Senator Santorum to Grosse Pointe South.. 9kRNxQ a href= http://hwuiemwgxzcn.. com/ hwuiemwgxzcn /a , [url=http://ineeoxxfbgiw.. com/]ineeoxxfbgiw[/url], [link=http://jbuiibelkkce.. com/]jbuiibelkkce[/link], http://vfpdsaryvooz..

    Descriptive info: National Association of Scholars Study Blasts Bowdoin College and Modern Liberal Education.. 4/9/2013 3:42:30 PM.. "Liberal education.. " The phrase brings knowing smiles and words of derision in many corners these days.. Mighty and respected ivory towers have.. developed cracks in the foundation.. Harvard University long ago made the meaning of grades worthless by mainly handing out As.. Even worse, a National Association of Scholars.. study.. of Maine's highly ranked Bowdoin College shows that "progressive ideology has altered the character of American higher education.. And not for the betterment of students' minds, but the imposition of a stifling and pale sameness.. Going back centuries, a liberal arts education consisted of studies "worthy of a free man, those studies by which we attain and practicce virtue and wisdom.. " The Greeks divided liberal arts into two forms.. The Trivium aimed to develop excellence in expression.. Grammar, logic, and rhetoric taught the student to write or speak clearly, coherently, and persuasively.. Other subjects considered necessary for the advancement of the free individual were arithmetic, music, astronomy, and geometry.. Medieval and Renaissance scholars fine tuned the formula.. The Italian teacher Petrus Paulus Vergerius in 1404 laid out a revised liberal arts curriculum.. Free men needed to master history, moral philosophy, and literature.. Techniques of rhetoric articulated by Aristotle required examples and moral truths to succeed at persuasion.. The three added subjects helped the student to learn about traditions, ideas, and human nature.. Liberal education was meant to free the mind for free inquiry and debate and "to discern fallacy from truth in discussion.. " Has American liberal arts education lived up to that lofty standard?.. Over a half century ago, William Buckley answered that question.. In.. God and Man At Yale,.. he wrote that "if the recent Yale graduate, who exposed himself to Yale economics during his undergraduate years, exhibits enterprise, self-reliance, and independence, it is only because he has turned his back upon his teachers and texts.. " Studies of economics emerged in the modern period.. They certainly  ...   them to argue in defense of their ideals.. Bowdoin fails in this most basic area.. Professor Henry Laurence in 2004 wrote that Bowdoin liberals and leftists understand conservative ideals and do a fine job in covering them.. Then he showed his ability to tolerate dissenting opinions by saying those who disagreed were "intellectually bankrupt, professionally insulting and, fortunately, wildly inaccurate.. " He then compared ideological differences to being a fan of either the Yankees or the Red Sox.. Understanding ideological differences is one thing.. Fairly representing them is quite another.. But if the differences are so minute, why not hire more professors of different worldviews? Professor Marc Hetherington attributed it to conservatives being less likely to pursue advanced degrees.. Fair enough.. But instead of describing the logical, interest-based reasons for this, he simply says that conservatives do not "place the same emphasis on the accumulation of knowledge [as] liberals do.. " Which is interesting considering the growing ubiquity of conservative and libertarian reference to philosophy and history to battle liberal talking points handed out as if inscribed on holy tablets.. Again, a defender of Bowdoin's tolerance defaults to prejudice instead of evidence.. NAS also describes the sparse requirements to take what used to be considered foundation courses in history, economics, and other needed subjects.. A curriculum once designed to liberate the mind now is used to instill a monotonous languor.. Such is the case across much of the landscape of higher education.. Individuals do not need to be carried off by the evil wind of conformity.. No one has yet memory holed the campus libraries or sites online with full text files of great works.. In the early Middle Ages, the word university referred to any realm where learning takes place.. With the help of great thinkers from before and now, break through the peculiar brand of left wing sameness of thought and actually train your own free mind.. xIAGh9 a href= http://dwobvejymbvf.. com/ dwobvejymbvf /a , [url=http://bjcsjxtprhwx.. com/]bjcsjxtprhwx[/url], [link=http://szdhcwtjdpkd.. com/]szdhcwtjdpkd[/link], http://dovggajhwowp..
