Today’s podcast takes up the question of the Howard Schultz candidacy and whether it’s frightening Democrats more or thrilling conservatives more. And then we bring up the brave new world of surrogacy, parenthood, and partial birth abortion and wonder whether what we need is an updating of the Oral Law. Give a listen.

    Ms. Rosen sounds like she is talking from another table…on the other side of the room.

    One of the commentators touched upon it and it’s always worth repeating:

    We can’t have a wealth tax without accurate inventories of what everybody owns and what it’s worth. So, be prepared to have your properties thoroughly searched for hidden treasures by the IRS.

    Good talk. I saw your clip from MSNBC on youtube. Why does Katy Tur think the disappearing middle class is a problem? Its the policies of her party that are causing the disappearance. You only need look at California as exhibit 1, where the middle class is fleeing to Texas and Utah, while the rich remain on the coast, and the interior is re-populated with a new under class.

    The case of the Lady and Donor sounds like it’ll be an interesting legal precedent. But I was thinking that she became a parent in the typical way – by not reading the directions on the product she purchased.

    That was a good show. 

    The episodes where you avoid talking about Trump much, especially in an almost conspiratorial way, are often very good. Besides every other podcast talks about Trump. It’s like the stand up comedians who can only tell jokes with four-letter words.

    Yes. Definitely need to raise the volume on Ms. Rosen’s mic.
