invites you to:

 A Tavern Debate

Resolved:  Defund the EPA! 

Recent statements and actions show that the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has overstepped both its Constitutional bounds and its statutory bounds. No longer dedicated to its statutory mission of motivating businesses engaged in interstate not to pollute the environment, the EPA seeks today, by administrative action, to regulate every aspect of carbon use, the very building block of life on the planet. This exceeds not only statutory authorization but also any conceivable Constitutional rationale. In these days of burgeoning deficits, Americans can no longer ignore the costs of such over-regulation in dollars and individual liberty. Shouldn’t Congress - without delay - defund the EPA?

 What say you? Come join the debate!  

As always, this tavern debate is an audience participation event, with potential speakers (a/k/a attendees) being provided food and a variety of libations for almost any taste or temperament.

Chicago Federalist Society

The Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies is a group of conservatives and libertarians interested in the current state of the legal order. It is founded on the principles that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to our Constitution, and that it is emphatically the province and duty of the judiciary to say what the law is, not what it should be. The Society seeks both to promote an awareness of these principles and to further their application through its activities. This entails reordering priorities within the legal system to place a premium on individual liberty, traditional values, and the rule of law. It also requires restoring the recognition of the importance of these norms among lawyers, judges, law students and professors. In working to achieve these goals, the Society has created a conservative and libertarian intellectual network that extends to all levels of the legal community. The Society takes no set position on legal issues, but promotes debate on a variety of historical, current, and developing topics - confident that the truth will out, and it will triumph if men and women of integrity act in accordance therewith.
