of my free-speech idols, two of them are lenny bruce and george carlin. they are both at campuses all time. where people saying this person shouldn't be on campus, just a potty mouth terrible person? they were saying that then. as soon as you start trying to evaluate people on the basis of the quality of the discourse they are bringing to campus, that is when biases present themselves. judith: i do know, i think lenny bruce could stand up to a stringent comparison to milo in terms of quality. but i see the problem. greg: people disagree because milo has a combination of conservative humor and bomb throwing and tries to be serious in certain ways, similar to what harlan and bruce would do. pranav: to understand why these people are being invited to campus because conservatives specifically a campus like berkeley feel disenfranchised in a lot of ways because of the environment they exist in. so they are going to make a decision to invite not the best reflection of their views or the most reasonable person, but a bomb thrower like and coulter. so i think it is important to create tha

witnesses. this is an exceptional panel and we thank you for coming. after george testimony, we will each have five minutes of questions. before we get into the hearing, i want to make a comment about the recommendations senator marie and i made it to the senate along with 22 other senators equally divided republicans and democrats for a short-term bipartisan agreement to reduce premiums and avoid chaos in the individual insurance market during 2018 and 2019. i'm very encouraged by what has happened since we introduced that a week ago. from the congressional budget office yesterday which said in effect that as we believed the alexander murray proposal, and which would continue cost-sharing payments for two years, 2018 and 2019, would provide benefits to taxpayers and consumers and not to insurance companies. senator marie and i spent a lot of time trying to think of the most effective language to make sure that would be true in our language. president trump said repeatedly he doesn't want to bail out an insurance company. we are convinced our insurance does not end the congressional budge

was exercised. this is an hour and a half. >> good afternoon and welcome to the george washington university law school. i'm susan karamanian, the associate dean for international and comparative legal studies. i'm delighted to introduce this distinguished panel on a topic that has been front and center in the news over the past year, and that is the issue of freedom of speech on campus. the idea for this panel came last year, when developments were breaking at yale university and the university of missouri. coincidentally, the book of my colleague, and one of our panelists, professor catherine ross, was just coming out. professor ross's book is "lessons in sensorship, how schools and court subvert students' first amendment rights," and it came out in 2015, under harvard university press. we had hoped to do something last spring but time passed, and in some respect the passage of time was a good thing, because this issue is not going away. and so events that play themselves out to a certain extent, yet i think it's appropriate, as we begin the academic year that we have the opport
isn't about you. education isn't about you. it isn't about me george mcdonald a writer from the turn of the 1800s to 1900s a writer that led to version of c.s. lewis if you will had this to say core principle of hell is i am my own. i am my own king. i am the center. i'm the october and i'm the end. my judgment is the faultless rule of all things. the claim that we can define and reare define everything from marriage to morality from male to female everything from what it means to be goods and what it means to be bad this claim of god-like deity can only lead to the ugly hell of our own making. i believe it is only repentance and confession that will rescue us from this fate. so i'm the guy who wrote this op-ed titled this is a university it's not a day care. let me give you a little bit of a context and then we're going to launch into a little bit of a script and i'll ad lib as we go along too. it was just before thanksgiving 2015, oklahoma wesley university still has required chapels every wednesday and fridays. and i received a phone call from a vice president who was chapel speaker
