Feminism & Libertarianism: Are They Compatible? Ft. Julie Borowski

Austin Petersen of the Libertarian Republic asked me to be on his podcast today to talk about feminism, libertarianism, privilege checking, and gender related issues. Austin and me worked together for a little while at FreedomWorks.

Austin and me didn’t always agree on feminist related issues. I actually remember having a few debates with him on gender at work. (See all this insider info you get from this blog…) We worked in separate offices and he would come over and basically tell me I was wrong ;)

It’s cool to see him come around. I knew that he would! I’m honored that he invited me on his podcast.

I’ll Be Moderating a Panel at ISFLC

The 2014 International Students for Liberty Conference is about a month away! Register here.

This will be my 5th ISFLC (oh my…) and I highly recommend going if you are a young-ish libertarian person (you don’t have to be a student). I believe they are expecting over 1,000 people! And there are some really great speakers. Click here to see the speaker list.

Young Americans for Liberty asked me to moderate a panel on new media! I’ve never moderated a panel before so this will be a first but I’m excited. The official title: Likes, Views, and Shares: How New Media is Effecting Policy and Philosophy. The panelists are Katie Harbath, Remy, Benny Johnson. I don’t want to give out time/day just in case it changes, but they should be releasing a final schedule soon.

I’ll probably be at the FreedomWorks booth much of the time. We had shirts last year and they were a big hit.

Also, after parties.

If that’s what you’re into.

Here’s one of the parties:

Hope to see you at ISFLC! It’s going to be a good time.

Libertarian Debate on Class/Privilege vs. Individualism

Tags

, ,

Hey everyone!

The Foundation for Economic Education (FEE) hosts a monthly online debate feature on issues of concern to classical liberals/libertarians. 

This month, the issue is privilege. Cathy Reisenwitz argues that libertarians should be more concerned about issues of class and privilege and I argue that libertarians should stay focused on individual rights.

Read both perspectives and vote for the argument that you like best herehttps://www.fee.org/the_freeman/arena/a-question-of-privilege

Thanks!

My Interview with THE Tony Stiles

I was on the Tony Stiles show last night.

This is Tony:

#MohawkNation

He has a cool ‘do and is super smooth. And I’m awkward and laugh too much.

He had a pretty last minute cancellation and contacted me to be on show that day. I finally agreed. He texted me 5 minutes before the show asking me what topics I wanted to cover. I said, “liberty and stuff.”

That’s kind of how the interview went.

Tony talked about all the marriage proposals he gets from the ladies ™. Then he asked me if Jesus Christ would vote. And I’m like, I have absolutely no idea how to answer this question. I shouldn’t even try.

My Interview on the Tom Woods Show

I was lucky enough to be interviewed on the Tom Woods show!

I got my copy of Meltdown signed by Tom Woods at CPAC 2010. But we didn’t officially met until Liberty Forum in New Hampshire in February 2013.

I was surprised when I got a message from him asking me to be on his show (what? me? the girl who does goofy YouTube videos?)

We spoke about many different topics. How I became a libertarian, how I got started on YouTube, my recent videos, common misconceptions about libertarians, etc.

Extending Unemployment Benefits Won’t Solve Unemployment

Tags

In case you didn’t know, I have a pretty regular column at Townhall.com. This week’s topic is extending unemployment benefits. This doesn’t address the real problem: unemployment! How about Congress actually focus on jobs instead– aka cutting regulations and taxes to allow entrepreneurs to do their thing?

I’m back!

I haven’t updated this blog lately (errr, since August 2013). 

Well, I’m back!

I was recently asked if I had a website and I said no. I forgot all about you, wordpress. I will try better. I’ve been up to a lot lately so I’m going to update this blog more often. 

Thanks for following.
