In honor of International Women’s Day, the women of Red Alert Politics put together a short list of conservative women who have inspired us. These women have paved the way for us to succeed in a male-dominated world and are true examples of women young female conservatives should model themselves after.
Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) took the stage on Friday at Springfeld Highschool in Virginia in front of an energized and packed gymnasium. Hundreds lined up as early as three hours before the rally began to show their support for Rep. Paul Ryan. Along with Ryan, two other notable speakers at the rally were former Congressman Artur Davis (D, then R- AL) and Virginia Attorney Republican General Ken Cuccinelli.
On Friday hundreds of conservative activists gathered on Capitol Hill for a rally to repeal Obamacare organized by Americans For Prosperity (AFP).
The rally coincided with the AFP Foundation’s Defending the American Dream Summit in Washington, D.C., which thousands of conservatives are attending this weekend to show their support for limited government principles and participate in grassroots trainings.
RIVERSIDE, Calif. — In the Inland Empire, an economically depressed region in Southern California, President Obama’s health care law is expected to extend insurance coverage to more than 300,000 people by 2014. But coverage will not necessarily translate into care: Local health experts doubt there will be enough doctors to meet the area’s needs. There are not enough now.
Other places around the country, including the Mississippi Delta, Detroit and suburban Phoenix, face similar problems. The Association of American Medical Colleges estimates that in 2015 the country will have 62,900 fewer doctors than needed. And that number will more than double by 2025, as the expansion of insurance coverage and the aging of baby boomers drive up demand for care. Even without the health care law, the shortfall of doctors in 2025 would still exceed 100,000.
The 2012 Campus Progress National Conference was graced with the early morning presence of the eccentric and vulgar poet, Kelly Zen-Yie Tsai. The Chinese-Taiwanese-American shared a few of her political poems with the young, liberal crowd and while reciting pro-feminism poem “Real Women I Know,” Tsai encouraged weed-smoking and masturbation.
Her other poems included “Black, White, Whatever,” and “ Lilly’s Hands,” a poem about overseas contract workers.
Before reciting “Lilly’s Hands,” Kelly chided U.S. colleges, telling the crowd that “their schools were not doing their job,” because not many of them knew what an overseas contract worker was.
Congresswomen and DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) addressed the young attendees of the 2012 Campus Progress National Conference to tout Obama and Democrat’s impact on student loan interest, and to remind the young progressives that government is their solution.
Although it was Congress who passed the law to extend low student rates, Wasserman Schultz credited President Obama also and said, “Congress and President Obama were able to prevent the interest rate on student loans from doubling for those looking to get a college education. Without action, millions of students would have faced owing thousands more in student loan debt.”
At Smart Girl Politics Action’s fourth annual Smart Girl Summit Friday, Hicks, spoke on a “War on Women” panel about the disconnect between women and politics.
Don’t forget to catch Hollywood’s new hit movie, The Obama Effect, which opened Friday.
This new groundbreaking film should be icing on the cake for those in denial about Hollywood’s slobbering love affair with Barack Obama.
Set during the 2008 election, it centers around a man who suffers a heart attack, decides to quit his job and puts his entire life on hold to creepily worship Barack Obama and join his campaign.
