8.17 – 103 Years of Tax History, Two Constitutional Sound Bites, and CyberExpert Michael Daugherty

I started the show with this GREAT Olympic story:

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:

  1. The Constitution intentionally did NOT limit officeholders by race, gender, or ethnic background.
  2. It specifically laid out the number of Congressional representatives, which was fixed at 435 early in the 20th century.

Listen to the isolated segment here:

HausGuest – Michael Daugherty

This was Michael’s 2nd HausGuest segment and he was SUCH a great guest.

We talked about 4 important topics:

Other Topics
