Feminist on feminist violence – no it’s not a porn movie, it might be the beginning of a return to normality – maybe, perhaps. We discuss the concept of transgenders and the newest “don’t call it a disability” transableism. How can we think and speak about these things with compassion and understanding – that doesn’t pretend there’s nothing wrong here? There IS a right and wrong, enabling mental illness isn’t the way, but we have to be careful to recognize what is and isn’t illness and to be compassionate with all sufferers.
There was some action on the Patriot Act / Freedom Act – and a politician went overboard in his rhetoric. Nothing unusual, but when that politician is also in the middle of a campaign for President, overheated rhetoric and getting carried away takes on additional meaning. We discuss Rand Paul.
And for our moment of schadenfreude – Hillary scheduled a speech to women, about women’s issues. Couldn’t sell enough tickets so had to invite men. Her campaign is just blazing a path across the land. Can you FEEL the excitement?

Join the weekly discussion about solving conservative messaging problems
A collaborative project of Free Radical Network, The Party of Choice, and The Conservative Union. Members of each group come together to discuss messaging successes, failures, and strategies in an effort to make ourselves, and the movement as a whole, better at selling Liberty.
“Because if we can’t sell Liberty, we suck; but if we can’t learn how to sell Liberty, we are defeated”
