You can listen to this episode by downloading the mp3 “attachment” to this blog post. The show’s agenda was described in the previous blog post.::::::Basically, I raced — I mean I talked so fast it was barely coherent — about all the things the federal government, Congress in particular, is going to give us, and upon which we’ll have to act urgently, this month. ::::::For kicks, see if you can guess the secret sound in the background during the final segment. Use comments below to offer your guess. ::::::The Downsize DC Conference Call is sponsored by DownsizeDC.org, Inc. and Gun Owners of America.

Congressional Onslaught

Are you ready? This is going to be a busy month. Congress has a lot planned for us.
:::
:::Starting next week, you’ll begin seeing Urgent Action Items. We expect that to be a regular occurrence up until Memorial Day.
:::
:::The last month the miscreants on Capitol Hill had us this busy was September. And we won one of those campaigns! As I sit here writing this to you now, my hunch is that we’ll think September was a “walk in the park,” by comparison.
:::
:::On today’s Downsize DC Conference Call, my Sunday radio show, I’ll tell you what’s coming down the pike.
:::
:::Will we be capable of keeping up the pace necessary to stop Congress from doing so many bad things?

Downsize DC Conference Call – April 22, 2007 edition

Boy, this show was “smoking hot.” Four callers. Nine emailers. And the messages kept coming even after the show was over (nearly a half-dozen more). And, I’ve received additional messages asking if there was somewhere to listen. Well, you can. “Attached” to this blog post is an mp3 of this episode. ::::::What was all the fuss about? I previewed the show in our Sunday morning Downsizer-Dispatch. ::::::My monologue was, if I may say so, powerful and spot-on. :::My guest, Jack Mullen, gave great insight into life with a schizophrenic. :::”Captain Phil” was an All-Star caller, with insight on how to deal with a Virginia Tech/Columbine style crisis if you’re in the room with the shooter. :::Chuck from Georgia had the email of the day with the three questions the media should have (but didn’t) ask all of the survivors. ::::::What a wonderful coincidence that Gun Owners of America is also a sponsor of this program. ::::::Oh, and if you’re interested in reading the entire Butler Schaffer article I quoted, you’ll find “The Control Cult,” here.
