There has been a great deal of interest in the 1st District of Mississippi about Angela McGlowan’s exchange with a group of Ole Miss YAL students concerning the Bill of Rights and her ability to name all of them. As a background, James Robertson and a few other YAL members approached Congressional Candidate Angela McGlowan before an announcement she was about to give in front of the steps of the Ole Miss Student Union. They asked her if she could name all 10 of the first 10 amendments to the US Constitution. Her reaction was anything but expected. Go here to read the full article on the confrontation.
Paul Gallo took some interest in the story and we thought it would benefit all interested to share her side of the story spoken to Paul Gallo as well as YAL’s side of the story. Enjoy! (The second audio clip is worse sound quality so the volume is lower. Sorry about that.)
Take a look at our new “I Pledge” video! It was inspired by the nauseating “I Pledge to be a servant to our President” video by Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher that came out around Obama’s Inauguration last year. What happened to all the change?
What is your pledge in 2010?

Last Monday, members of the Ole Miss chapter of CAN (Campus Antiwar Network), UM Constitutionalists, and Young Americans for Liberty were the few to speak out against the war criminal Colin Powell during his well paid visit to the campus.
The protest was a great success. With only a few dissenting voices, CAN was able to make the front page of the campus newspaper. They not only were able to make the paper, they actually were part of the story describing Colin Powell’s speech. Thanks to student activists, members of the community for once were allowed to witness dissent to the corruption that is so shamelessly ignored by the media in our country. I want to congratulate everybody who took part in the protest. This was a great step in waking up the campus.
