On the Conservation of Content

There isn’t enough time. That’s one thing that becomes abundantly apparent within your first few hours of CPAC.  There’s a ton of people to meet and things to see, but very little time to accomplish all you’d like, particularly if watching a speech or going to a panel is on…

CPAC 2014: Booth Review!

Speeches, panels, parties, “celeb” hunting, these are the things CPAC is known for. But buried underneath those important, if somewhat rote features lies the hidden jewel of CPAC: The Booths. Okay, maybe that’s a little over-dramatic, but not by much.  As I mentioned two weeks ago, both the panels and speeches…

RE: Culture: CPAC 2014- Now Taking Suggestions!

Well Radicals, here we are again.  In a little under a week FRN will be taking CPAC2014 by storm! Also by train. And plane. And probably shuttle-bus. But regardless of the particular means of transport, Free Radical Network will be there in force!  CPAC vets Something Fishie, Pdog, Sandra, Krayon…

Dystopia Now

As a kid, I never liked dystopic literature. I read “Brave New World” at a very early age, and immediately tried to forget it. Aldous “Pass the LSD” Huxley is a lot for a 13-15 year old to digest. In that same time period I also read 1984 and Fahrenheit…

RE: Culture: Guns and Minds

Merry Christmas Radicals! I hope you all survived your holiday plans unscathed and are enjoying some well-earned time off before the New Year cranks up. I also hope that those of you who were visited by Santa are happy with what you got; I know I am! …Well, at least…

RE: Culture: Capitalism, The Left, & Japan

You know, Radicals, sometimes I’m baffled by the Left.  They yell and scream about sexual-preference-based hiring discrimination here in the states, yet they turn a blind eye to the awful, and oftentimes deadly conditions the LGBTQ community has to contend with in the Middle East. (Except for that one place that…

Well-Researched Article About Common Core

Caution: Despite the title, this article is completely (well, mostly) biased and subjective. I do not claim to be an expert on the subject, or to have more than a passing knowledge of the meat and potatoes of Common Core. If you actually want some well researched (though still probably biased)…

RE: Culture: New Media

Hey Radicals!  Yes, I took the summer off, and no, it wasn’t intentional, just some messed up writer’s block garbage that I’m *mostly* over.  That being said, I hope to be back to full speed soon, and I hope you’ll continue to bear with me through my “recovery process”. Anyway,…

Twelve Years Later

My name is J.D., I’m from a small town in Union County, New Jersey, and I am 24 years old. The house I live in is the same house I’ve lived in for my entire life.  When I think of the term “home”, this house is what I visualize.  It’s…

Trolling is SRS BSNS: A Picture’s Worth

How does the above image make you feel? Certainly not good, correct? Does it “make you sick”? Well, good.  That’s what it’s meant to do. Now, how about these next three sentences, minus any images? Smoking is bad for you.  Smoking can cause cancer.  You shouldn’t smoke. Are you moved? …
