This week the nations top debate coaches released their recognition of the top collegiate policy debate teams. This exceptional group of sixteen teams receives pre-bids to the National Debate Tournament at the end of March and will have strong potential toward winning the national title in debate at the tournament to be held at the University of Kansas in Lawrence. Two of the nations top teams that made this elite selection are from Berkeley, a campus recently racked by violent demands for the suppression of free speech. Incredibly, Berkeleys teams and one other team from California who made the cut, will not attend the National Debate Tournament. That is because the state of California has banned all university related personnel from traveling to four states around the nation: Kansas, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Mississippi, on the specious grounds that these states have all passed anti-LGBT legislation. All debate teams from California state schools are practically banned from attending the national debate tournaments being held in the state of Kansas in March.
As California continues upon a path of ideological ricochet that in many quarters seeks complete separation from the nation, the prospects for freedom of speech have declined to incomprehensible limits. Americas college campuses -- especially those in California -- are not simply victims of this trend, they are also important agitators for this breach of our most important civil rights. The free speech movement that began at Berkeley has come full circle. Violence against free speech is now argued by the university to be a moral end. Ironically, it was 50 years ago, that a great debater spoke on that campus urging for greater free speech in order to overcome the nations scourge of racism. James Farmer Jr. was a prelude to the free speech movement of 1964.

I get a kick out of it every time the Ivy League Law Schools have their Debate with JAILHOUSE LAWYERS, The Convicts Destroy them EVERY TIME. Pretty Funny to watch.
The Ivy League Lawyers don’t know duck shit from apple butter about the law or the practice thereof it.
“I get a kick out of it every time the Ivy League Law Schools have their Debate with JAILHOUSE LAWYERS, The Convicts Destroy them EVERY TIME. Pretty Funny to watch.”
How many times have they debated?????
Even I could win against them in that their ‘forced’ position was that public schools had to enroll illegal aliens!

I will forward your comments to McConnell so he will instruct the senate to vote against Gorsuch.
Not very often because they always get SKUNKED.

Your debating skills are lacking.
As long as there two human beings alive on this planet, there will be debates.
Those that wish to stifle “dee-bates”, have been known to end up receiving “dah blast” of the firearm’s retort!
“As long as there two human beings alive on this planet, there will be debates.”
Not if the last two are husband and wife.
You got that right!
