Tweet I recently engaged in a debate with a particularly vehement pro-choice feminist who concluded our argument rather huffily by letting me know that she was going to donate to a certain Lilith Fund as a result of our discussion. Appalled to hear that such an organization existed and assuring myself that it couldn’t really be what I thought it was, I immediately looked it up.

Tweet “To defeat Barack Obama, Republicans can’t nominate a candidate who relies on outspending his opponents 7-1,” said Presidential Candidate Newt Gingrich last week, referring to rival Mitt Romney, who overwhelmingly won the Illinois primary on March 20th.

She understands, in a way many of us cannot, the brutal nature...Read More
“A nation under a well regulated government should permit none to remain uninstructed. It is monarchical and aristocratic government only that requires ignorance for its support.” -Thomas Paine, The Rights of Man “Do you know [the name of the] Vice President of the United States?” asks Austin Oberbillig of several Olympia High School students in a YouTube video which has garnered nearly a million views since it was uploaded at the beginning of the month. “Definitely not,” responds the first student. “George Bush?” suggests another, giggling nervously. “Umm, the bald guy,” answers a third girl. “Clinton! Clinton, right?” One student...Read More
