It seems to be “attorney” day for Steel on Steel.

First, a lawsuit is underway against the Department of Homeland Security for designating conservative Americans, including veterans returning from Iraq, as potential terrorists to be monitored by law enforcement. Richard Thompson is President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center (www.thomasmore.org).

It’s back! For all the years we’ve warned listeners about the dangers of U.N. meddling in families, there is a movement in Congress to ratify the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child. This treaty would be binding on all states and would insert U.N. policy between parents and their children as to what they’ll be allowed to read, do, with whom they associate and what they believe. Michael Farris from Home School Legal Defense (www.hslda.org and www.parentalrights.org) joins us.

Finally, the fight between free markets and top-down management of economies reaches all the way back to the Enlightenment. Paul Rahe (www.paularahe.com) is a professor at Hillsdale College and author of “Soft Despotism: Democracy’s Drift.”

John’s boralogue revises the schedule for the U.S. emergence from its 2009-2012 crisis window and plowing in an economic train wreck, making the current crisis look pale by comparison.
