12.7 – Day of Infamy Anniversary, Constitutional Sound Bites, and HausGuest Michelle Ray

75 years ago today Pearl Harbor was attacked by Japan – a day which will live in INFAMY:

Here’s today’s GREAT show:Listen to “#HausRules – 12.7.16” on Spreaker.

YouGov did a survey that yielded VERY interesting results:

  • Resentment:screen-shot-2016-12-07-at-8-54-04-am
  • History education:screen-shot-2016-12-07-at-8-54-18-am
  • The morality of the atomic bombings:screen-shot-2016-12-07-at-8-54-31-am

Constitutional Sound Bites – David Shestokas

After discussing the attack on Pearl Harbor and the interesting moral questions raised by the atomic bombings, we got around to discussing Article IV from the Constitution:Constitutional Sound Bite

The issues: how and why states do or do not recognize the authority of other states (drivers licenses and concealed carry permits, as examples) and how new states are added.

Listen to the entire isolated segment here:Listen to “Constitutional Sound Bites” on Spreaker.

HausGuest – Michelle Ray

Michelle is a MULTIPLE-time return HausGuest and one of my faves!

We had a stack of stuff to discuss but (not unexpectedly) started off with something COMPLETELY different and it took up almost the entirety of the (way too short) segment. YouGov just published the results of a poll done with The Economist and two tables were particularly interesting (and depressing):

  • On the Carrier deal / Whether the free market has been causing America to lose:free-market-losing
  • On tariffs in general: tariffs
  • Not surprisingly, Carrier is already responding to the marketplace:carrierbloomberg

Lennox and Trane have yet to comment.

We DID get to one of the stories that Michelle sent me last night and it’s a doozy. The IRS just won the right to access a HUGE swath of data about Bitcoin users from a company in California:screen-shot-2016-12-07-at-9-27-10-am

I also talked about this lawyerese-inspired self-congratulatory Obama-Tweet story:screen-shot-2016-12-07-at-9-29-10-am
