The modern social justice movement can be described as a loose union of movements that oppose institutionalized injustice in various forms—racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, and many more.

In the Issues statement of Family Planning and Reproductive Choice, the National Association of Social Workers endorses abortion stating:
[…]Social workers […] have a professional obligation to work […] to establish, secure funding for, and safeguard family planning and reproductive health programs, including abortion services […]

TheBlaze’s newest hire, Dana Loesch, went at it with Democratic strategist Steve McMahon on Thursday’s “Hannity” over the failures of Obamacare, arguing that the health care law is the “biggest bait and switch” since Social Security.
After McMahon himself admitted that younger, healthy Americans are going to pay more to help insure older people with medical issues, Loesch blasted the “one size fits all” approach to health care.
Sarah Palin clearly took note of the story about an Army master sergeant who’s reportedly been told, among other things, that he’s not allowed to read books by conservative authors—including Sean Hannity, David Limbaugh, and Mark Levin—while in uniform.

OMAHA, Neb. – Omaha middle school teacher Shad Knutson found a new way to connect with his students, and he used it to live out his sexual fantasies.
In one year’s time, Knutson, now 36 years old, exchanged 26,986 text messages and phone calls – an average of 70 per day – with one of his 14-year-old female students, according to the Omaha World Herald. He exchanged almost as many messages with other 13- to 15-year-old girls at Nathan Hale Middle School where he worked.
Over the weekend, The New York Times (yes, that New York Times) reported that Organizing for Action, Obama’s rebooted campaign arm, has been selling White House access to donors who pledge at least $ 500,000. And, when confronted about the report today, simpering Press Secretary Jay Carney insisted that OFA is just an “independent organization”:
Right. An “independent organization” that — purely coincidentally, of course — runs the official @BarackObama Twitter account:
