    I could listen to Richard Epstein all day. I could listen to him reading his grocery list aloud.

    Blue Yeti, can you get Mr. Epstein a Blue Yeti? I think he would sound better.

    Troy,

    Thank you for asking that question about the anti-injunction/tax issue. I have listened to Richard’s explanation several times, I still do not understand the issue. I believe that was the intent of the ruling.

    He has one, but he did not have it with him for these last two shows.

    Thanks for hooking me up, Troy! Now if we could just get Richard to speak English for the lay folk. ;) No, it was helpful even though the bate Richard would like to fight on the general welfare clause does seem lost long, long ago. And John, I’m old school Galactica.

    “bate” above should be “battle”. Stupid auto-correct!

    I’m a little late as I wanted to see if I could get a question to the guys about the consequences for not paying the penalty/tax/whatever. I had heard that there is no consequence and so it makes me wonder if that will create more problems that will point what kind of a power grab this is.

    An excellent, but depressing hour. Fortunately capped by a perfect (dare I say brilliant?) closing song selection. One of my favorite Elvis songs!

    I had never heard a deeper explanation of the “promote the general welfare” meaning in the Constitution. Ever since hearing the preamble in “Schoolhouse Rock” I’ve assumed the “promote the general welfare” line implied the support of advertising for things like anti-smoking/don’t play with matches/get your prostate checked.

    Yes, I totally agree. That was a master stroke by the Yeti.

    Yes.

    “He was a fine idea at the time, now he’s a brilliant mistake.”

    Hmmm…resonates with me.
