  • Are Modern People Morally Advanced?

    American Thinker ^ | 03/23/2013 | Bruce W. Davidson
    In regard to widespread disdain for the Middle Ages, C. S. Lewis felt that many modern people suffer from a kind of “chronological snobbery” and that “the modern conception of Progress ... is simply a myth, supported by no evidence whatever.” Certainly many minds smugly assume our world’s moral superiority to that of people in the past. That assumption merits some close critical scrutiny. This claim probably does not rest on an improvement in the numbers of deaths in war and genocide. Many millions died in past atrocities such as the Mongol invasions of Asia and Europe and the Muslim...

    DAVIDSON, N.C. -- Davidson College is giving Chick-fil-A the boot. The school is suspending the restaurant chain from serving meals at student events. The union board will decide early in the semester whether or not to permanently ban the chain from campus. The suspension came after the chain's president sparked a national debate by speaking out against same-sex marriage.

    The College Union Board & Chick-fil-A August 13, 2012 Contact: Bill Giduz, 704-894-2244 The Union Board at Davidson is a student organization that plans and manages student events. They have occasionally served Chick-fil-A sandwiches as part of their "After Midnight" events. "After Midnight" has been a regular monthly Union Board activity since Davidson's Alvarez College Union opened in 2001. It offers students free food and some form of entertainment from midnight to 2 a.m. The Union Board serves different menus at "After Midnight" throughout the year, and Chick-fil-A has been served once or twice annually. The members of the Union...

  • Judge rejects releasing TBI file of ex-judge Richard Baumgartner

    KNOXVILLE — A judge said today he has no authority to make public the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation's file on former judge Richard Baumgartner. "This court has no authority whatsoever to decide on its own, 'I'm going to let the public see this file,'" Special Judge John Kerry Blackwood said at a specially-called hearing in Knox County Criminal Court. Blackwood said the portions of the file not made public contain phone records and recorded conversations in which Baumgartner discusses sex with two women and makes "crude remarks" about people. "What you're not going to find (in the TBI file) is...
  • Sickening! Judge's Addiction Means New Trials for Torture/Murder/Rape Convicts

    12/01/2011 7:53:48 PM PST · by ferrgus · 22 replies
    The four pieces of human filth who brutally raped and murdered a young Knoxville couple are all getting new trials, thanks to the drug-addicted judge who presided over the cases. Former judge Richard Baumgartner bought extensively from the convicts in his own drug court. He considered himself above the law but finally got caught. Because he was high much of the time he was presiding over the trials, the families of the victims get to hear yet again how their children were savagely beaten, raped and mutilated before finally being killed.

    Yes, it’s that new age of Democrat political civility rearing its ugly head yet again. During an April 12 debate on gun control Pennsylvania State Representative Margo Davidson of Philadelphia wondered aloud on the House floor if it might be OK for her to blow the brains out of one of Pennsylvania’s Republican Representatives. Before we even go on with this story, imagine if a white, male, and Republican politician had asked during a debate on policy if it would be OK if he blew the brains out of a black, female, Democrat. Just imagine what would be happening to...

    Twice on Monday (here and here), I took serious issue with the opening sentences of two Associated Press stories on Uncle Sam's fiscal situation. First, there was Martin Crutsinger's Sunday stinker, which described the level of spending in President Obama's yet to be released 2012 budget as "$3 trillion-plus," timed so that early morning news readers, radio listeners, and TV viewers would hear it. Too bad that the real number, which the AP reporter acknowledged later on Monday, is really $3.73 trillion. If you think that's bad, the administration projects that total spending this year during fiscal 2011 will be...

    The father of Channon Christian made a vow Friday to Lemaricus Davidson, the convicted ringleader in her kidnapping, rape, torture and murder. "I will do everything in my power to see that they stick that needle in you as soon as possible," Gary Christian said during Davidson's second sentencing hearing. Davidson is already under two death sentences for the 2007 murders of Christian, a 21-year-old University of Tennessee senior, and her boyfriend, Christopher Newsom, 23. He was back in Knox County Criminal Court to be sentenced on the other charges related to the crimes.

    A Knox County jury delivered the death sentence this afternoon to the ringleader in the torture slayings of a young Knoxville couple following a carjacking. The same panel of seven men and five women who convicted Lemaricus Davidson, 28, in the 2007 attack on University of Tennessee student Channon Christian, 21, and her boyfriend Christopher Newsom, 23, decided his fate. Davidson was found guilty of more than 30 counts, including felony murder and premeditated murder of each victim. The jury had a choice of a life sentence mandating a minimum of 51 years in prison, life without parole with no...

    Two big questions hang over President Obama's radical "Green Jobs Czar" Van Jones. Is he still a communist? Is he a security threat? Many have assumed that Van Jones' committment to communism ended when the organization he helped to lead STORM (Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement) dissolved in 2002. Yet a 2004 treatise Reclaiming Revolution: History, Summation, and Lessons from the Work of Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement written and endorsed by a majority of former STORM members makes it clear that most ex STORMers are still committed to the revolutionary movement; From page 49.

    Harley-Davidsons 'immortal' in Cuba By Joshua Robinson Thursday, January 8, 2009 HAVANA: Sergio Morales's friends gently rib him about the dirt under his fingernails and the grease that fills every line in his 58-year-old hands. The grease has been there so long, they tell him, that it must predate Fidel Castro's revolution. But Morales has heard all the jokes, and not a single one makes him look up from his work. He just shifts his cigarette from one side of his mouth to the other as his fingers twist and caress the tools in front of him, granting new life...

    It seems that Senator Obama's Old party was called the New Party. The party was a Marxist Political coalition. This was not a guilt by association thing. Senator Obama sought out their nomination. He was successful in obtaining that endorsement, and he used a number of New Party volunteers as campaign workers.

    Business Week | AP ^ | 11/28/07 | Emily Fredrix
    MILWAUKEE Some 5,400 Harley-Davidson Inc. workers are out of work this week as the motorcycle maker cuts production because of falling sales. The Milwaukee-based company announced in September it would shut down production at plants in Wisconsin, Kansas City, Mo., and York, Pa., this week as part of a planned cut in production. A shorter layoff is better than a long one, said Frank Larkin, a spokesman for the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, which represents workers at Harley-Davidson plants. At least workers were able to prepare for it, he said. "We were informed early on this was...

Google has an impressive list of players on its team. As well as counting Al Gore among its senior advisers, Google’s Washington office was set up about a year and a half ago by Alan Davidson. A well-known Democrat sympathiser, he served for eight years as associate director of the Centre for Democracy and Technology, a thinktank that opposes government and...

    After Human Events Online posted a July 12 article on the College Republican National Convention (“President of College Republicans Sets Sights on ’06”), the blog CRNCtruthcaucus.com listed the piece as “More bad press.” Why, you might ask, is an unassuming story about the aspirations of newly elected Chairman Paul Gourley considered negative coverage? Maybe the last few paragraphs about fund-raising have something to do with it. An obviously displeased CRNC intern approached me soon after the article’s publication and asked if I’d be interested in writing an “alternative” piece about their field representatives. Gourley himself then offered, more delicately, the...

John Kerry’s continued pessimism toward an improving economy: "John Kerry’s gloom and doom campaign talk won’t create one job in Ohio.

    While some long-time critics of President Ronald Reagan stifled their inclination to criticize the dead, others launched the kind of venomous attacks that marked his long career in politics. Libyan leader Moammar Khadafy said yesterday he regretted Reagan died without ever standing trial for 1986 air strikes he ordered that killed the Libyan president's adopted daughter and 36 other people. Ronald Reagan ordered the April 15, 1986, air raid in response to a discotheque bombing in Berlin allegedly ordered by Khadafy that killed two U.S. soldiers and a Turkish woman and injured 229 people. "I express my deep regret because...

    Waukesha - Cemetery director Michael Wilson makes no bones about it. He believes Harley-Davidson motorcycle riders will be dying to camp at the city's graveyard during this summer's 100th anniversary celebration and figures his scheme could net Prairie Home Cemetery hundreds of thousands of dollars. "I believe that there might be enough bikers out there who would find it curious to sleep in a cemetery," Wilson said. "They can go home and tell their friends they slept with the dead. And I don't think it's disrespectful to the cemetery to have this one-time event." Wilson stressed that the bikers and...
