  • Description:

    First Topic - How Boston College Went to War With the U.S. Military

    For many years now, most law schools have had “non-discrimination” policies which prohibit potential employers from interviewing students on-campus if those employers discriminate. In the early 1980s, some schools added sexual orientation to that list. This has put some schools on a collision course with the military and the Church. Ron Rychlak, Associate Dean of the U. of Mississippi Law School explains how Boston College upped the ante and went to war with the U.S. military.

    Second Topic - Has Bush put the Constitution on the back shelf?

    President Bush has his sights set on immigration reform and he’s willing to beat down the doors of Congress to make it happen—but how far is too far?  Since when is the President our chief law “giver”?  The idea that the president is the chief policy maker in America has only come about in the last century, says Kevin R.C.Gutzman, author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Constitution. Gutzman busts the myth that the President controls all in America—our country was simply never intended to run this way. He says it’s time to put the Constitution back in constitutional law.

    Third Topic - Analyzing a defense of Planned Parenthood

    A listener recently informed us of a correspondence he had with the clothing company Patagonia. He used to wear a lot of Patagonia clothes until finding out they were a big donator to Planned Parenthood. He decided to ask them again about their stance...and was amazed at the response. You will be as well.
