Jason Andrew, David Ruis, Glen discussed on The News & Why It Matters


And for those of you who are listening on the podcast and cannot see we have that go fund me up. It is go fund me dot com slash David. Dash Ruis dash I for David Ruis the second. I do also want to just bring into the conversation, and I want Jason Andrew I want you guys to come into this conversation. But I also don't think it's go into that. You know, we've got all of this going on devaluing life. And then we've got Glen I talked to you about this last week. We've got a ten year old boy who killed himself because his classmates were bullying him over the fact that he had a birth defect and had to have a colostomy bag, and he went to school, and he was bullied so much for the fact that he had a cloth bag that he killed himself at ten years old. I see a correlation here of the way that we are valuing life. You know, and how it's reflecting on what we're teaching our children Andrew do you wanna win? I think that there's I see the bullying thing. I didn't follow that story. I think there's a tremendous amount of anger in bile in the current culture. And I think that when you get into things like social media, and I imagine that probably factored into it through some kind of filter that we have when we're talking with one another face to face the doesn't happen. So for for kids that are on social media in high school. I do not envy them. I would not want to go through that. I don't know. I don't know if I if I think it's necessarily quarter with correlated with a decline in appreciation of life because I think that person taking their life kind of different scenario hinges on that though. I think that there is something to be said with the the actual having to look at people in the eye. We used to say as kids, and I told them, and they'd say did you say that it'd be like now? No, hey, but now you do say that because you don't have to look at. Emails tend to be a little bit more snippy than face to face conversation. Because we've got that that we've got some kind of the the monkey part of my brain doesn't understand that when I'm on a computer. I'm looking at a piece of glass, but I think our kids are sponges to right? So they're seeing how we're interacting with people. Media or not I think they're still paying attention. And that they don't have the filter that we have that's true. And I think that there's a there is just this kind of ground swell of hate. I mean, we talked about the maga- hat boys last week. I mean, I think that we're kind of it's almost like we'd get up every week. And we're like, okay, our job this week is defined monster, and drown it, and there's this kind of catharsis that we wanna do. But before for I wanted to ask because I've not followed the story very closely and I- far be it for me to in Vegas. The free market. I'm a free marketer. However, he's the skies in a Catholic hospital at a private hospital. Why would that be emblematic of socialized healthcare were of single payer healthcare? Don't know don't know if it is. I'm I'm guessing the ones that I have seen in the past in America always boil down the money, whether it's private or not it just boils down to you're going to cost too much money out. I will tell you that. I don't think the insurance companies they're not afraid anymore. Okay. They were afraid of bad, publicity, but they're not afraid really a bad publicity anymore because they are in bed with ObamaCare, and the government and the hospitals. It's it's all juiced for everybody to make money now. And everybody's in it. So you don't have those you still have the evil insurance corporations. But you don't have the the will or the. The the the politician that wants to take them on take them down. You don't have that anymore. And that's only going to get worse as we go more and more towards single payer healthcare to add really quickly..
