Interview runs from 1:12 to 11:36. Couldn't find a clipped version or a link to the extended full interview. Should be up soon.

Enjoy !

". . .please stand up. . ."



“. . . I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion. . ."

'scuse me but this particular clause in the Congressional oath has been ringing in my ears for more than most of the unproductive intransigence of Congress during Obama's term.

Whenever I've asked a lawyer or a judge about the many blatant violations of this clause, they've all said,

"Well, it's open to interpretation."

Not *one* proceeded to interpret.

If Congress were simply strongly reminded of this specific clause in their oath of office, blanket obstructionism might just be obliterated.

That is, if our unrepresentative governance still had a glimmer of integrity.

Violations of this clause (coupled with gargantuanly wasteful campaign *spending*) enable legally sanctioned bribery to dictate knuckle headed legislative disconnect with constituencies.

They’ve damned near sabotaged & disabled 2 branches of government.

May they be stopped in making it all 3.
