After the shooting incident involving Republicans (Congressman Scalise, et al), at a baseball field in Alexandria, Va, many are calling  r reduction in political speech, or at least an effort to tone it down. Sounds good, sounds smart, but what exactly would that sound like? The country is already very divided politically and on edge, and both sides are ready to criticize and pick each other apart. What does “tone it down” mean to you, exactly? If the rhetoric is “toned down,” would content be eliminated for the sake of political correctness? If so, what does a reduction in political speech mean to you? What What are the “red lines” which should not be crossed?

Identifying as a Hippo: Apparently trans-gendered is passé. Now the next level of buzz being talked about on a university campus is being “trans-species. “ The University of Arizona has hired a visiting PhD scholar, Florentin Felix Morin who identifies as a hippopotamus, and has written about this in an academic journal, the Journal of Theoretical Humanities. He claims his hippo alter-ego allows him to navigate the free world from the constraints that govern human bodies.  He claims he is a human trapped inside a hippopotamus. Last January, U of A Department of Gender and Women’s Studies gave him a warm welcome but now U of A is distancing itself from him. Why is the university doing this to him? What do you think of his message?

Article V of the Constitution allows for a “Convention of States” to restrict the power of the federal government. It takes two-thirds of the states to petition it, and presently, 11 states are on board, with 27 more needed to ratify. In general, do you think the federal government has overreached its constitutional boundaries and now has too much control of our lives? If so, how exactly? Do we need to restrict the power and jurisdiction of the feds in order for citizens to take back their rightful powers? Or, will a new constitutional convention make it worse because the changes are limited to current prevalent issues?
