Downsize DC Conference Call – May 7, 2006 edition

OK, first, an apology. This entry should’ve been posted two weeks ago…

What’s the significance of the resignation of the CIA Director, Porter Goss? You might be surprised by the answer. In fact, I broke news on this program about Goss and a coming CIA scandal. But does any of it matter? Listen to learn.

My discussion of Goss led to a discussion of partianship. This conversation may well surprised you as well. Which party do I favor? Again, you might be surprised. Listen to learn.

My Gun Owners Update was about how power tends to corrupt politicians – even the Founding Fathers. Check out this Larry Pratt op-ed.

My Marijuana Policy Project update was about their new program to help low-income residents of Rhode Island pay the registration fee for their medical marijuana ID cards. You can read the press release here.

Also, a not-so-suprising but still amazing quote from John McCain. He did take an oath to the Constitution, right? Ah, who cares about such things?
