In this episode I discuss the ultimate authority of a runaway judiciary – the Supreme Court and how they now believe they have the full authority to legislate from the bench – rewrite laws. It all goes back to Marbury v Madison – judicial review. Thomas Jefferson had a few choice words on that. And everything Confederate must go. It’s a Confederate moving sale and it’s all being moved to dustbin of history.

Everyone who isn’t talking about the finish at the U.S. Open, it seems is talking or writing about the controversy that appears once again to pit left against right. I’m talking about South Carolina continuing to fly the Confederate flag.
When I was attending the University of South Carolina in the capital Columbia, I ventured downtown frequently and can honestly say I never noticed the Confederate flag there, although it must have been.
When I was a kid, I distinctly recall owning a Confederate flag. I don’t remember where I got it, who gave it to me, or what happened to it, but I know I had one. As it turns out, it didn’t cause me to hate blacks, become a white supremacist or shoot up at church, but I digress.
Politicians, some pundits and presidential candidates who think they can attempt to ride the fence by dancing around the topic are saying the decision to fly the CSA flag is up to South Carolinians. In other words, they either haven’t the knowledge to speak of it, which is sad, or the courage to say, which is more sad, or both.
