Hey Thom

Listening to your 2nd amendment debate the other day. You said the right to keep and bear arms was not intended for protection from the federal government, but I found a publication that says it was. The 3rd edition of "The Meaning of the Constitution" authored by Holder & Holder, makes this claim on page 64. They reference U.S. v. Miller, 307 U.S. 174 (1939). I live in Texas, but I am able to listen to your show every day on XM radio (thank God for XM!) and was hoping to hear your take on this claim.

The Death of the Middle Class was by Design...

Even in the face of the so-called Recovery, poverty and inequality are getting worse in our country, and more wealth and power is flowing straight to the top. According to Paul Buchheit over at Alternet, this is the end result of winner-take-all capitalism, and this destruction of the working class has all been by design.
