Compared to past years when such dignitaries as Supreme Court Justice ANTONIN SCALIA spoke on CHURCH, STATE & THE CONSTITUTION (1997) or the scary REARMING AMERICA by then Secretary of Defense CASPER WEINBERGER (1981), this years LAKESIDE TALKS were relatively low key. Maybe that's because so much of the ruling class agenda is now outfront for all to see if only they will look. Still, there were some interesting topics shared that would be of interest to the shut out public. *
