Response to Carley
You gave Michael Carley a lot of space to give your readers a lot of misinformation, and I think that you owe it to your readers to give them the other side of this subject with some facts.
A wise man once said, “Every person has a right to his opinion but no one has a right to be wrong in the facts.”
I got the impression that Michael is a teacher at Porterville College, so I wanted to give him something David Horowitz said, “His idea of an Academic Bill of Rights is to turn to advantage the notion of balance and value-free neutrality to which those campuses pay lip service.” Here is how he describes it:
“All higher education institutions in this country embrace principles of academic freedom that were first laid down in 1915 in the famous General Report of the American Association of University Professors. ... The report admonishes faculty to avoid ‘taking unfair advantage of the student’s immaturity by indoctrinating him with the teacher’s own opinions before the student has had an opportunity to fairly examine other opinions upon the matters in question. ...’ In other words, an education — as distinct from an indoctrination — makes students aware of a spectrum of scholarly views on matters of controversy and opinion, and does not make particular answers to such controversial matters the goal of the instruction.”
I will add here the Second Amendment is fact and not open to debate or opinion.
California has usually led the nation in attacking the Second Amendment and anti-gun laws, but New York got an edge on them. Now, California is attempting to take the lead again. Our state government can’t stand to be second on anything negative. We are first in welfare recipients, unemployment, over-regulating companies into leaving our state and soon to be the first with over 50 percent Hispanic population with Caucasians as a minority. Did I miss anything?
