Today's Downsizer-Dispatch . . . Here's Jim Babka's agenda for today's episode of the Downsize DC radio show: * A major school district is about to close. Why? And what does it mean? * Is the "Spying on Americans Act" dead? * Did Congress give the President the power to "disappear" American citizens?" * Did Congress prohibit the President from using torture, or allow him to do so? * If the current President has been given new powers, should future presidents have them too? * We've had more school shootings. What can be done about them? * Congress inserted an Internet betting ban into a bill on Port Security. Can we stop this kind of thing? Jim has all the answers! Tune in. And we promise, he won't talk about a certain Congressman from Florida who likes boys. That's what you have cable news and the rest of talk radio for. (Yes, I know, that sentence ends with a preposition, but it's early, I'm not fully awake yet, and prepositional fussiness is "an imposition up with which I shall not put.") * Plus, DownsizeDC.org just had a great month. Jim will tell you the behind the scenes story. * Plus, plus, useful updates from Gun Owners of America and the Marijuana Policy Project. * Plus, plus, plus, you can ask questions and offer opinions.
