Here’s today’s actionnewswisdombrilliancehumorinsight-filled show:
Constitutional Sound Bite – David Shestokas
Having just returned from a vacation in Italy, David first shared a little perspective on how the Roman ideas of a republic had an influence on the U.S. Constitution. We also discussed the Constitutional process that made the income tax possible (continuing the conversation about taxes from the first segment of the show).
We then talked about two important points:
- The Constitution intentionally did NOT limit officeholders by race, gender, or ethnic background.
- It specifically laid out the number of Congressional representatives, which was fixed at 435 early in the 20th century.

HausGuest – Michael Daugherty
This was Michael’s 2nd HausGuest segment and he was SUCH a great guest.
We talked about 4 important topics:
- The University of Michigan

- Julian Assange and Wikileaks:
- An (extremely likely) October Surprise leak on Bill’s wife – which may have a dramatic impact on the Presidential race:
- The continuation of his personal story (detailed in his excellent book – The Devil Inside the Beltway):
- In 103 years, the changes in the income tax code are breathtaking:
- I didn’t get to this, but I recommend reading this VERY compelling op/ed from John Yoo and Jeremy Rabkin:
