It’s OK that conservatives don’t feel welcome

As we emerge from another bad State of the Union address from an even worse president, it seems appropriate to reflect on the young members of the ideological movement that created him. Across the country at schools like ours, college right-wingers say they face social isolation because of their beliefs.

Some conservatives at Washington University feel this way. An article in the WU: In Focus issue from late last semester—which I just read last week, so maybe take that into account when you’re evaluating my credibility—profiled several conservative students who’ve experienced negative social ramifications for their politics.

The phone that can identify you from the way you WALK: All-knowing smartphones that monitor EVERY movement is developed for the Pentagon

In Lancaster Ohio, a 9-year-old boy recently put on a show at a local bar by dressing in drag and performing a sexually suggestive routine to raise cash for charities.

Outraged parents are now calling on the state’s Attorney General to stop the “child exploitation.”
