What Part of "Shall Not Be Infringed" Don't They Understand?
One of the most ancient debates among conservatives is whether liberals hate the Constitution, or simply don’t understand it. Some argue that the Left is far too blinded by their own ideology to comprehend the importance of the Constitution, and that they therefore lack the ability to interpret it honestly. I don’t think they deserve that much credit. There are a lot of words one could use to describe the American liberal, but “stupid” is not among them....

In Defense of Sluts
I've never denied being a slut. I've had my fair share of sexual partners, both in and out of relationships, and from the average person's perspective, I'm probably a trollop. Although most people think it's a put-down to say I put out, I embrace the label willingly and with enthusiasm. I encourage other easy riders to do the same. From Mary Magdalene to Pamela Anderson, sluts are mythologized, denigrated, and misunderstood by society, and I propose to debunk the label and its lies. I think it's time we put the stereotypes of sluthood to bed once and for all, reclaim the term, and redefine it....
