    Hard Starboard Radio: A Week Of JASmius On KCAA

    in Politics Conservative

    November 23rd, 2013 began a streak of three guest-hosting gigs in four weeks.  I never did receive an adequate explanation for Mr. Gibbs' month-long attack of sloth (which is to say, I don't remember what it was).  But you know me, I'm always willing to help, especially if it means getting the hallowed gold-pressed latinum KCAA microphone all to myself until I start growing as accustomed to the center seat of the starship Pistachio as the host.  Kind of like "Captain" Riker in Best of Both Worlds.


    Yes, that's foreshadowing.


    Live podcasts resume Tuesday, March 10th.

    Constitution Study Radio: Lesson 24 -Losing State Representation in Congress

    in Politics Conservative

    Through the Constitution with Douglas V. Gibbs


    The 17th Amendment removed State representation in the federal government, centralizing the government in Washington, and diminishing the voice of the States.  Ratified during the progressive era, the amendment changed the dynamics of the American System, opening a path for tyranny in the central government.  By eliminating the States' ability to participate in the federal government, it removed their influence regarding their own interests, and introduced ideology into the Senate, placing the powers of advise and consent into the hands of directly elected officials.

    Constitution Study Radio: Lesson 23 - Income Tax and the Federal Reserve

    in Politics Conservative

    Through the Constitution with Douglas V. Gibbs


    The 16th Amendment established an allowance for Congress to enact direct taxation.  The same year the Federal Reserve Act went into action.  The Progressive Era gained full steam in 1913, followed shortly after by the 17th Amendment.  Direct taxation was never supposed to be enacted, and it was a political game connected to the Bailey Bill that created the environment needed to "soak the rich."  As for the Federal Reserve Act, the democrats split the republican vote to achieve their dream of private international bankers issuing, and manipulating, American currency.  The more things change, the more they stay the same.
