On October 7, 2001, the United States government commenced bombing attacks against the Taliban forces in Afghanistan. By December 7, 2001, the Taliban had been driven out and defeated. On what date was the first battle casualty of an American soldier?

The first CALLER to my show today who can tell me the correct date will win a special prize (probably a book), courtesy of the William J. Olson, PC law firm of McLean, Virginia.

And what else will I be talking about?

On Friday, the House Judiciary Committee held the Dennis Kucinich-inspired "I Can't Believe It's Not Impeachment, Non-impeachment Hearing." The Republicans on the Committee counted and reported the number of times the word impeachment was used by those who testified, and decried the fact because this was NOT, after all, an impeachment hearing.

It was both tragedy and comedy.

On today's (Sunday) Downsize DC Conference call, my TWO-HOUR radio show that starts at 3:06 PM Eastern (2:06 PM Central, 1:06 PM Mountain, and 12:06 PM Pacific), I'll talk about the hearing, because I think it was a flop. 

Can my audience and I do a better job than Congress of covering this case? I believe you can, so invite you to phone or email me.

Toll-free 1-800-259-9231, or type this address to email me, "CALL at DOWNSIZEDC dot ORG"
Of course, this show is also sponsored by, Inc. and Gun Owners of America (GOA). And, like usual, we'll do a GOA Update. Today's topic is the tragic, infuriating case of David Olofson.

On top of all that, I'll be joined by radio host Steven Vincent, to discuss The Great American Walk for Freedom:

You can hear the show online at

In fact, Genesis Communications now has streaming options through cell phones!

Or you can tune in to one of these stations . . .

* WCER 900-AM Canton, Ohio
* WBCR 1470-AM Maryville/Alcoa, Tennessee
* KLID 1340-AM, Poplar Bluff, Missouri
* KGEZ 600-AM, Kalispell, Montana

And if for some reason you can't catch the live show, my network, Genesis Communications provides a podcast of the show, available a couple of hours after it goes off air, up through the next broadcast.

In fact, if you want to listen to last weeks show, it's still up there -- at least until I go live with today's show.

Happy Listening,
