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.

Time to Rethink the War on Terror

When Eric Holder eventually steps down as Attorney General, he will leave behind a complicated legacy, some of it tragic, like his decision not to prosecute Wall Street after the financial crisis, and his all-out war on whistleblowers like Edward Snowden.
