“On every question of construction carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.” –Thomas Jefferson, letter to William Johnson, 1823
Glenn covers the amount of control the federal government now has over our lives ranging from the indoctrination that American children receive in the public school system that has only been controlled by the DOE since 1979, to the Energy Department’s nudging of green issues, to Cass Sunstein’s belief that the Constitution is irrelevant because it cannot keep up with the times (Cass, ya asshat, please see the quote above).
BUT Glenn starts the show by discounting ImADinnerJacket’s comments to the UN about the federal government being behind 9.11. I absolutely hate it when he does that because there is just too much evidence from scientists, 9.11 first responders, architects, and demolition experts (worldwide) that shows something other than 19 islamic jihadists brought those three WTC buildings down all by themselves. (But I digress…)
