    Confederate flag and Second Amendment supporters gather in Gettysburg

    I salute the Confederate flag with affection reverence and undying devotion to the cause which it stands it’s not about kicking the hell out of somebody it’s about teaching the person because violence does nothing but create more violence but at the same time if somebody can walk away learning something I’d rather change their mind than change the direction of their teeth we have four different permits that were issued for people that exercise their First Amendment rights yeah it’s my understanding that some of the permit requests we received were related to Internet postings having to do with burning of Confederate flags and desecrating of graves those it…

    Confederate flags draw ire at Howard County school

    HE ADMITTED USING A FORM OF DISCIPLINE USED ON HIM BY HIS FATHER WHEN HE WAS A BOY. IT’S BEEN AN ONGOING CONTROVERSY AT A HOWARD COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL.

WE CHOOSE NOT TO BE DIVIDED BUT TO BE UNITED AND USE THIS AS A TEACHABLE MOMENT. THE RALLY IS MEANT TO BE ABOUT EDUCATION AND COMMUNICATION SPARKED BY THREE STUDENTS WHO DISPLAYED THE CONFEDERATE FLAG AT THE HIGH SCHOOL. WE HAVE COME TOGETHER THAT THAT INCIDENT DOES NOT DEFINE OUR SCHOOL SYSTEM. IT DOES NOT DEFINE OUR COMMUNITY. IT DOES…

    “Secrecy doesn’t serve the process well” — Stephen Janis

    One of the things define the process especially when it comes to money settlements and secrecy and you know if people might look at this issue and say it’s kind of nebulous because you know who cares what journalists have access to, but as Mark pointed out with the consent decree and what happened with the Baltimore Police Department, it strikes me that secrecy didn’t serve process well in terms of understanding what’s going on with our Police Department and as my associate Taya Graham and I reported on the Eastern Shore we found many of the same element of secrecy in coverage of Kokomo and Salisbury, so we’re just…

    Unlawful and Un-American: How our leaders are attacking your First Amendment rights

    No American should fear being singled out and harassed by a government official who takes a different point of view on public policy questions. President Obama’s Justice Department may be going after your business if he does not like the way you think about global warming. Democratic attorneys general for more than a dozen states fired off subpoenas seeking decades of records from climate change skeptics, including the Competitive Enterprise Institute. What’s happened here is unlawful and it’s un-American. This is what happens when you can’t win a debate. They couldn’t pass it through Congress, so instead they’re imposing their agenda on everyone else. And our first reaction was “Hell…

    How fainting couch feminism threatens freedom | FACTUAL FEMINIST

    I have been lecturing on college campuses for more than twenty years. I’ve seen lots of hijinks, but nothing like what is happening today. Safe-space fainting couch feminists are taking over. And their own professors find them scary. That’s coming up next on the factual feminist. Consider what happened to feminist professor Laura Kipnis at Northwestern University. She wrote an essay making light of trigger warnings and safe spacers. Two graduate students found her views “terrifying” and filed Title IX harassment charges against her. Her university, apparently intimidated by the grad students, took their charges seriously. The University carried out a formal investigation of the professor and her “offending” essay.…

I want to tell you everything about his career as a reformer, teacher, scholar, a leader so prominent that just last year, he was named the most influential person in legal education, which not a single person in legal education needed the poll to know. I want you to know what I know.…
