And I know Danny did a lot of words having the research where he's supposed to made bachelor statements, but for me, it, it was various a very smooth fun and bring process. And just, you know, a lot of laughs, especially being my father, passing not too long before and working on a memoir, that was very emotional vice, and just nice release, to do something that will make people smile and bring back all the fun. You know, happy moments and inspirational things said about life when you reflect back on his life, the influences in his life. What he went through both professionally as an athlete, and as a person as well. How did he come up with all of this, because it was all very insightful? And it made so much sense. I'm sure from his standpoint, but as we look at it over the long course of many years that people have known about Mohammed Ali, you think about what he has to say it does make sense. You know, it's funny, my father actually a lot of time. A lot of people don't know, this, but he did do a lot of studying and research before we going shows, and he would read a lot, you like to have in our solar. It's a pocket full of only comments comebacks and quotes to say something's came to the top of his mind in the moment. He was very quick, witted and others. He's sort of practice or had set aside that he would tell him advance and sometimes retail over the years, so I think it's a little collection of all of that, you know, he was always in front of the camera. He was always saying how funny and Shuki and, you know, the press could be, and you never know when, you know, when you're going to be asked important questions and questions that we earn outlive, you, you know, his statement and the pressman news like even now, so he did a lot of studying research and look reading, quote, books and putting his witty, come back then. And you know, combs together before even happy out into the world and a lot on a lot of occasions and other times, it would just be the spur of the moment and just off the top of the head. So it's just. Part of my father was very, very quick, witted and funny. Humorous, as you know. And never never had a short for words or something to say or give his opinion. What did you find was the essences of, of his humor because I'm just wondering wearing a, we're all came from. You know, I cannot tell you that because my grandmother, my mama burden polar because she had a little bird knows mama bird had was very sweet and shy and loving and quiet and his father was boisterous and outgoing outspoken and Blache. And I, I wouldn't call them funny, you know, not intentionally my father, just had a natural Schumer about him. I came to earth that way and he came to earth with. Amazing competence within within himself, and which was exceptional especially time he Rupp and, you know, so, and he also was always very, very, very philosophical always thinking thoughts, he felt that he was here to, you know, to do great things in life and thought he had a special purpose and we'd sit outside of a little boy, and look up at the stars and we forgot or angel to tell them ignition in life until that story at times over the years, which was true. And I think that a lot of humor came. Probably just it came in eight with him. I don't know honestly wear. It can't just part of who he was. He was actually a natural comedian just very funny. Even the way we look at him later in life. I mean, you know, he'd be incited, he always say, he seemed trapped inside of his body, because, you know, hey, the Parkinson's, but his eyes were so bright and alive and it'd be moments, but his daughter cross the room and it was like he was inside of there. You know. And just very comical, just naturally just, you know, he was just a funny person who we always laughing lies cracking jokes, and I guess he can that way. One of the other things that I was amazed about, as I look through this book and recollected all the sayings that he had is that none of them was said, in anger, and why I say that is because he grew up in a time that was not very tolerant in this country as far as race relations, but he never had something inside him that made him angry. So when he said something it wasn't to hurt somebody else, and that, that really amazes me it says something about his character. I agree with you. I think that looking at a person, and how they handle the revolt, and how they respond and the pressure. And, and in year and anger. Tells you a lot about the character, and one of the most enduring aspects about on the so many but one of the most enduring affects my thought of kids today was the -bility to go through this world. See the worst and others somehow retain the best and end self and you can watch all the footage ever done on him. And you're never gonna find him actually unless she's promoting fighting be funny. You're never gonna find a click where he's saying negative out of person. He always believed. Or like you said anger. He always believed that being so famous and impressionable that he's influenced people and he just didn't express his opinions about people in a negative way. He never talked bad, about people in never stopped. Why me it was never angry? Nearly even affecting lost, but three and a half years as prime fighting years when he didn't go to the more we stick at his title before the supreme court overturned that you'll never never in his life ever wish to go back and do things differently. He just looks at the blessings. I thought it was part of his his journey here, and he always looked forward. So it was an amazing quality that he had. And it was it was admirable really I love this quote from him. He said, I studied life, I studied people and I'm educated on this. But when it comes to reading, and writing, I'm not I may be illiterate, to, to that point. But when it comes to common sense when it comes to feelings when it comes to love compassion for people than I'm rich. Yeah he was not my father. It's funny because my father, you know, he'd a tough time dyslexic, Eboni, and he had a terrible speller. And he taught himself to read reading the Koran his religious police and just studying stuff. We, we reading things over and over again. And he most people try with map, but my father was not embarrassed by said it to the world and you didn't let it makes him feel like he was any less thing when else he just he, he. No, he take the good with the bad, and that's another quality that he had. That was beautiful. You know, no one's really look and feel bad about himself or down about himself because he wasn't perfect. And he wanted other little kids in other people in the world know that just because you have certain difficulties in life, certain challenges doesn't mean you can't excel to high level in life. You just have to believe in yourself or card could the good with the bad just keep going forward. So it's a message if even send you taught so many lessons I like doing it just living by an example. I think it's one of the reasons people love and it, add Meyer them so much. There's like, there's so few if any heroes in the world, and I mean, he's only fault and not to say, no one's perfect. But he's in public was that he wasn't a faithful man. You know, a lot of the aren't so. Handled amazing. I mean all my siblings are brought together in the summer of out of wedlock children out of wedlock, children habit that he was made you all of us are friends to this day group text all the time all nine of us because he brought us together. So you handled, you know his faults in a certain way that admirable he handled life in that way. And, you know, he shortcomings, he had he just was very open like an open book. He didn't hide anything. You know, does no mysteries to discover them and people are always looking in the press or something to tell him story find something, but he lived his life as an open book, and I think it's one of the reasons people love him so much. He loves people. He loved being Muhammad Ali, you love living life you love being so accessible. You can reach out and touch him. And that was just who he was the human being is so rare and it's, it's, it's very it's missed very very much so. One of the stops in my career in broadcasting was at ABC sports. And I worked for Howard Cosell and the relationship that, that Mohammed had with Howard. I was really something special. I've got a couple of quotes here that's in the book. If I had a lower IQ, I could enjoy your interview, and then he also said Howard, every time you open your mouth, you should be arrested for air pollution and he also said, I have been interviewed by many people, but I enjoyed interviews with Howard, the best. What was it about those two? I think that, you know, just like with any recipe you have to have a writing reading into my father, had such a humorous playful winning personality, and people like how so sale who was quite opposite him very spoke and spoke, very slowly. And deliberately thought about his words, he, I think he just made a great match together and Howard did not take anything personal view. My father's humor and it you know, I think that's really what made it works so well. So that's the contrast and their personality. And the fact that he could take humor, anything, take it personally, and it was fun loving and playful. So you know they were great team. They weren't really something. They really really were. Here's another quote, that I think is spot on, he said, once who made me is me. Right. My father you know, he knew he used to say, and I don't know. I don't think made it in the book, but he used to always say that, you know, he sold his eleven zone did up his own place. So knows you know probably wasn't never had a problem tooting. The horn and saying they thought stayed up like it was and he knew that he made himself. He he was smart. He is wise. Nobody invented him advice on how you should act. We should do it all came from within and followed his own advice. And there's people around him and he knew what, what, what to do what not to do, and, you know, he he's always always watching the world. And, you know, even with gorgeous George the person who he arrest for the famous I started him in bragging. I'm the greatest after he saw gorgeous, George doing it and selling tickets. That's why he says he made his he made himself because all the things about him a little bit Myers. He get on his own the stands. He took the funny and witty humor humor stuff. You know, the skill that he was blocked from God. And, you know, James. Oh. So he knows no one out and discovered him per se, or gave him the recipe you gave him the words it all came from within. So. The other thing too, about him HANA is he liked himself? He was very comfortable within his own skin. And I think this quote in the book probably sums it up best, he said, I'll tell you how I'd like to be remembered as a black man who won the heavyweight title, and who was humorous, and who treated everyone. Right. As a man who never looked down on those who looked up to him, and who helped as many people as he possibly could financially and also in their fight for freedom. Justice and equality. That's powerful yet. His favorite things he my father, loved all people. But he really really wanted to help uplift blacks in America, and he wanted to love himself to good about who they were to be able to look up to someone that makes them feel proud that, that showed them that they were just as great and you know, whenever asked about his legacy how he wants to be a little bit. It's one of the two things he always said. So I think that he's accomplished that and, and he and he and he knew it. And, and it's just yeah it's very inspirational. They're beautiful. He was such an amazing spirit and human being that. I mean everyone that loves and everyone loves someone in Mars someone that I think my father was starting just out of this world. I always telling that he was eighth one of the world if he's still mazing. You know, you're the eighth wonder of his world daddy. Yeah. We've got about forty five seconds left. And now I wanna share just one more, quote and get a quick response from you. God test me every day that I wake up with my disease, and I passed the test every time my father never lived in shadow of Parkinson's. He didn't think about it every day. And I'm not kidding me. When I say that one of my favorite stories to tell that really summit my father for people, and it might be hawking in the Spanish. But like I said didn't look back. He didn't feel sorry for himself. He be Mohammed Ali joint life. She woke up one day, and she told, you know, my father, this is a few years past that, somebody that worked in the Mohammed Ali center, had just found the parking busy wasn't hitting the well. And she said, you know, this is my stepmother, Lonnie, she said, you know, and having you have to do with it, and he said, you know, I don't know. I just I don't think about it much. I just get up and I live every day, and he looked at it and says the people. No, I haven't. No. You haven't Muhammad. He's oh, I don't think about it, and you don't let the kitchen what's for breakfast. So that's just who my father was. I want to thank you.

I was a specialist like that's a whole different type of rank in the military. It just doesn't have a real ring to it, though, specialist Rhys. I just don't get it. And somebody else who doesn't get it is a coroner in Louisiana now. It's finally happened rich, I've been warning you for years. Boy, a Louisiana corner claims. The first case of THC overdose. The first death due to smoking pot and overdue cooking it. Yes. Oh. Louisiana coroner claims, first case of THC overdose death. Others doubt her findings. Imagine doubt her findings to you. Yeah. I do too would be sui generis. I mean, unless you like passed out while wearing a gas mask, Bong, I guess that's possible. I'm not, but the thing is tonight my knowledge of gas mask bonds. But my knowledge of the mix is extent. Mine may might date back to when I was in high school. My father unfortunately onto hardware store, so I had access to all sorts of devices to connect one thing to another. Oh, yes. He might it was a pharmacist. Okay. And so, I learned to bend glass, tubing very artistic bugs out of it. Yeah. But that's even in that case. I mean, why haven't we seen wire at the streets littered with dead potheads I guess that's what I'm wondering. Well, I mean, how much would you have to smoke because, you know, I mean there have been times when it looked like I was attempting suicide through pure smoke inhalation. I live. And I, I mean, if he really managed to do it. My hat's off to him for the enhancement food, and, and the, the strength that it must have taken for him to crawl on his belly across that last bowl. Into, you know, Chris, Chris, it's gotta be it's gotta be to gateway drug now. That's gotta be the answer, right? System that caused the death not really the let's find it sold. This comes to us from news. For a, that's a NBC affiliate in Louisiana. WBZ TV corner in Louisiana claims. Based on autopsy results woman in the state could be could be the first person to die from THC overdose. The main ingredient in cannabis now. I know the answer we they gave it to us and breakfast club, Harry ago cannot hold. They smoke. What it is. Awesome. Greedy. And in of cannabis marijuana, the Saint John's, the Saint John the Baptist corner told the New Orleans advocate. The thirty nine year old woman showed she was killed by an excess of THC the corner claims that there were no other signs of disease or intoxication. The could have led to the death other than THC, and it could be the first death as a result of overdosing on the compound, the blood level, Komi skeptical. But I if you take too much of something it is possible to die. Like if you drink too much water, it's possible to die. Right. Just just have a hard time believing that unless somebody's drowning, you know, it really happens, right? See there was a woman who killed herself. There is a radio contest. Yes. Drinking water and a woman died as a result of water poisoning. It was you're giving me the eye rolling. Look. This is true. Talk about rich. They were giving away a Nintendo. We yeah. The contest was who could hold their we the longest while drinking water. And she she hung in there. And she ended up getting violently ill and ended up dying. There was a big. It was a big thing in radio circles. Okay. Yeah. The radio show was sued and I believe they were held liable. I think so, so these types of really obscure odd things do occur. And as I was thinking about marijuana that I keep coming back to, as, if you're smoking it. Okay, you smoke at joint. You smoke it to your face. And then you gotta roll another one smoke that when to your face roll other one in smoke that to your face the question is after your penultimate joint before passing out. Do you have the wherewithal to learn to roll another joint and belief is that you will? Forget how to smoke weed before you smoke your fatal puff. You just won't know out to do it. You look at the weird and you look at the bay bridge, you'll go. I don't know what to do with any of these things. Right. That's the part that's really crazy. I'm gonna skip to another article, which has a little bit more on this, this comes to us from the New Orleans advocate. That's what was referencing in the first one, every so often, the US claim emerges that there's been a first ever death from a marijuana overdose. The latest claim comes from the place. Saint John, the Baptist parish corner, Christie monta get said last week that toxicology results for thirty nine year old place woman who died in February showed she was killed by an excess of mount of THC. The main ingredient in marijuana, quote it looks like it was all THC because their autopsy showed no physical disease, or afflictions that were the cause of death. There is nothing else identified in the toxicology Noah. Other drugs. No alcohol. There is nothing else. The woman's name was not released. So I find that. Pretty questionable. Well, I couldn't find anything else that would cause death. The only thing I found was we'd to record of causing hero times, because you haven't found it, you haven't discovered it doesn't necessarily mean that the only thing you did find caused the quality right logic logic, fails. So what sort of things can kill somebody will insulin can kill somebody. And if you don't find the pinprick, you might not know that they that they had an excess of insulin because it's a it exists naturally in the body. There are a number of, of cuisines certainly that will dissipate. Yeah. There's a million things and there are. Maybe may, and I'm not a cardiologists. I am not a medical doctor in any way perform, and I'm certainly not a coroner deal. Only thing I am doing is adding, my voice to the many doubting voices to say that this was THC, which is a substance, a compound found in marijuana that's been studied off and on whether the federal government was allowing it or not, it's been studied off and on for fifty years. And no indications any at any point that this was this is a lethal compound. Yeah. I mean, if a bail of falls on, you, you're might die, don't do, it's probably Leslie than h two so it certainly less lethal than aspirin. Seventeen aspirin as cat Williams said that's going to be your last headache. Monta gut had served as Saint, John corner since nineteen Eighty-eight believes this could be an index case in medicine, perhaps, the first death on record solely as a result of THE expose. Since some drug researchers and experts are skeptical, and I'm gonna go out on a limb and say us in studio. We're also skeptical. Eight fifty five four fifty three.

I mean that's interesting. That was the seventies I feel like you're, you're, you're. Well, actually, I can't say this on the way older than I've heard the newest to remember how clean everything was before they invented dirt. Everything you could eat off anything. Now. I'm trying to think of what s is when I was, you know, when I was at my eighteen twenty twenty five in that, that age. I mean it was nothing. I mean, the IBM PC just come out apple had got their first couple is out. But the MAC wasn't a thing yet. Yeah.

It's an interesting way to think of think of our age is operating systems. But, you know, I mean growing up the home PC was just like it was kind of a new thing when I was growing up. So do you think the latest versions are like bloated and inefficient? Every. In some ways. But yeah, I mean, I remember having a Texas Instruments, TI ninety nine that was early computer that we had at home. Ours was all, you know, it was stuff that was designed to come into your house here, S, eighties and stuff like that. So the trash eighty that was one computer programming. And, and then the Commodores, and the Atari is, you know, would die first computer with the Commodore pet. How about you? It was. Well, when you say computer that's, that's kinda hard tears, eighty was the first one that we had, I guess would call that a computer. That was a general what it what did you have before that, that was maybe a computer lake, I had an Atari four hundred before that. But I didn't consider it real stuff came later. And I did have a Tari four hundred zero eight hundreds and twelve hundred excels and things like that. And you could you could write you could progress you those things in basic. Absolutely. Yeah. See, that's, that's what I loved. I started. I was just playing games on it. But the games were written in basic. So like I found that I could change the game. And it was like, oh, this is. So much fun with the come by Meru. Right. And it would probably slaughtered that pronunciation s close enough. I knew what you were talking about the, the idea of programming, you know, things in basic when your computer was so limited, I think, opened up the world to a lot of people like if you, you know you slap down, like the, you know, the DR blow graphics, engine in front of some kid who loves to play video games. What's he gonna do? I mean, where do you start when you're just trying to do is make change anything? He might well, make version of doom where all of the all of the monsters are Barney. That was one of the first things like that, that I played where somebody made in. Yes. Somebody done Ahmad or added a new skin or modified his skin. Yeah, maybe it's through modification that, that they get to do this. We're going to go back and talk about weed again, because who doesn't like weed? Well, no hands go up. He doesn't like weed, and I'm not I'm not much of a fairly smoke. What do you refrain from answering the question every two or three years? I feel the urge to try it again. Rebel call, but yeah, I'm really out there. But again, you know he's a blast. What don't we? Yeah. How could I not be we're talking about this story comes to out of Louisiana where a Christie monta gut who is the coroner at Saint John? The Baptist parish is claiming that a thirty nine year old place woman died of marijuana, basically died of an overdose of THC in her logic is well, we couldn't find anything else. There was nothing indicating any other disease. But we did find THC in her system air, go, it must be marijuana that killed her or to me, like it should be considered a late onset SIDS very late. Out freeze. A former senior policy advisor at the White House opposite of national drug control policy said that with the vast amounts of marijuana consumed in the US every year. And he's not kidding. It's hard to imagine that more overdose deaths wouldn't be occurring. THC was toxic at consumable levels quote. We know from really good survey data that Americans use cannabis products, billions of times a year, collectively and not millions of. Right. Not millions of times, but billions of times, unquote says Humphries that's a billion with a B baby with a b quotes. So that means that if the risk of death was wondering two million, we would have a couple thousand cannabis overdose deaths, a year up freeze also said, it's not uncommon for coroners to see drug in the system, and with no other sign of what have may cause an. Event leading to death must conclude that the drug was the cause quote, there is some imperfection in these kinds of assessments. I would agree. And we are going to like to just give that credit as a master of understatement. I think that guy has the British humor down. Yeah. There you go. We are going to go to discord where I believe it's Ilian is on the line. You on the phone and Gonzales, I don't know. Are you there? Okay. What's on your mind? Okay. So I'm calling from west night.

You see them smoking weed. So sheltered in Russia smoke weed now slow sleeping. Leading here to the United States. They should come and smoke it here they should. Thank you for your call. The story continues, the National Institute of drug abuse a federal government research institute said there has never been an adult death attributed to THC. So what do you think? I mean, you've got the government. Unbelievable. You got the federal government on one side, defending this drug saying, we've never had a case, presented to us that it was clear that was THE in yet, you have this corner in Louisiana was this chick vaccinated took a question.

It's too bad that isn't around anymore. Thirty three k thirty three point six k. Thirty three point six. It's like forty four. Yeah. I am the king of old technology trivial week. All I totally. I'd missed it. But I would've picked up if I had actually been paying attention. Absolutely. Yeah. It is. A crazy time nearly as crazy as people insinuating that marijuana causes people to die this story and we're we're reading from this is out of a limousine. What paper are we at the New Orleans advocate? And this is a story where coroner is alleging that this woman smoked, a whole lot of pot or ingested, a whole lot of THC somehow and died. And she is claiming this is likely the first death attributable to marijuana in Louisiana. At least monta guts, report appears to be the first to attributed death to THC alone. According to State Department of health spokesman, Robert Johansen, all of their deaths. He has recorded with THC mentioned involve a combination with some other drug reports of death due to THC tend to pop up across the US every couple of years, one notable claim came from Colorado in two thousand seventeen where. Eleven month old boy died after his inflamed, heart went into cardiac arrest headlines were made across the US, because the case study said the baby's death may vote may be been associated with marijuana exposure. The study's authors were quick to note of that didn't mean the baby died just because he was around marijuana. Even though the THC in his system seemed, the best explanation for why his heart was inflamed. Montague doesn't suggest THC was partially responsible for the death in the place case. That's interesting because marijuana an anti inflammatory agent. Right. And for a child to have an inflamed heart that seems counterintuitive it really does. Yeah. Yeah. It's they're blaming. They're blaming marijuana for defective some sort of defective bodily function basically, you know, whether it'd be the heart or something else. And it's not really the marijuana that was the problem. It was there. Bishen that was the problem and yeah, maybe marijuana had an effect, but they probably would have died from something else as well like water or who knows. I'm thinking the lady must've been vaping, this THC oil and got got a high level inner system. And it made her stop breathing like a respiratory failure. He said, it's the level was yes, we're going to get to that. But it's weird because they're in the story, they just changed. The Christie is a female name to a he but maybe it is used as a male name. I'm not sure Monica said the THC level inner system likely came through vaping device with highly concentrated THC oil toxicology report said the woman had eight point four nanograms per milliliter in her blood, so eight point four nanogram per milliliter. It's all sorts of metric there. Oh, it's a voodoo metrics, a lot is it, I know there's no scale, and I don't think anybody well, actually this goes on to say this. Impaired driving can occur with as little as two nanograms of THC per milliliter going to at least one study. And so she had four basically four times the amount needed to cause impairment, in a driver, so, so that still doesn't sound that the thing is to impair a driver eve be long before you'll impera driver, unless they're smoking, well, that are deriving you're probably going to make that driver want to do anything, but go go out and get in a car and do something. So, you know, even that levels of levels of THC that impaired driving almost never seen in the wild and that's important because nobody's getting convicted of that in Colorado, Jerry's aren't buying the impairment that they are there. Nola. Fine juries left and right. And that's good. I mean, the only thing I can think of is that there was a defective to face, but to play marijuana, then doesn't really make any sense because it was defective device somehow. Elected too much into them or something, right? But right like vaping and, you know, I, I know people I know people around here that do vape THC oils or cannabis oils, and things like that. It's a very efficient way. I would think of in Justin THC and getting a buzz but I, I get down to this number of two nanograms, Cam produce impairment, and it may be four. I mean, everybody's different. It's gonna hit everyone differently. I want to know what studies led them to believe the two nanograms per milliliter is the magic number where drivers become impaired. This is as ridiculous. This statement is as ridiculous as saying that everybody who blows a point zero eight on a Breathalyzer is impaired -absolutely. It's a made up number at pulled out of somebody's, but yeah, I mean, I was following a drunk, I the other day and he was clearly on the road like he was able to drive. There was no problem. Driving, even though he was impaired, right? And how could you tell he was impaired weaving back? Weaving back and forth. The line was driving a little slower. But hey he's on the road. Did you find yourself? Like secretly rooting for him. You got this. I'm with you. Go. Go go. Yeah. This is the whole thing. It's these are all hypothetical numbers, and, like I said, and then for them to allege the THC anything over two nanograms is going to create an impaired driver. I realize the state this, this group of people feel that they need to come up with a solid number that they can then enforce their laws on us. It's it's not the way it should be it. This is this is, is insane as DUI laws. But I would say that's more insane. Yeah. And that's how comes across to me because I don't I don't think there's going to be a lot of driving among the two stone to drive that, but please don't smoke behind the wheel because, you know that that's just an awful plan. I'm going to go a little bit further and I'm going to say you know if you feel that you are truly impaired. If you if you will, anytime you think you're paired don't drive exactly. Is there is there a statistically any idea like what percentage of people even dry behind the wheel, like that's a good point? Have the number of drivers dropped in Colorado. Right. And, and I wanted to the difference between the number of people driving TLC and their system because he teach. Tender Lovin kid, teach in their system, and actually being affected by. Right. You know, there's there's, there's a clear difference. It stays in your system for like fourteen days. Right. It something like that. It's a fat saw longer than that. I was in jail for thirty one days one time, and they, they released me on bond but they said the one thing you get do is smoke weed and we're going to be testing you. So my probation officer had tested before I was released thirty one days in jail, and I still pissed thirty. Eight fifty five four fifty free. What's your experience?

I think everybody in town, actually, is that's a business. Anyway. It certainly seems like that. And Chrissy your business does a lot in. Crypto has historically. Oh, yeah. Yeah. I mean, we don't we're not a brick and mortar retail Elliot. We're in an internet, but yeah, yeah, I think dot com. We saw computers and accessories and tech stuff computers and computer, excess re's. We. Say computers. Peripherals accessories should say it that way you'll go viral. Computer computers, says. But I love what you guys do and your philosophy. I is it all your products are open source hardware? I mean you guys actually look at what a machines Baid of and try to determine whether this is something that could be potentially dangerous, because it's got flaws or it's got closed source software, and, yeah, I mean, from somebody might smoke seventeen computers die from a scary respective. We certainly go to the extreme, but there's a lot of reasons to be concerned about the, the software. That's running on computer. There's code available for it because basically that's what they hide all of back doors. Got any kind of security issues, but it's not even just that, like, even somebody who's not necessarily concerned about backdoors so much. It's still we're not necessarily links garbage concerned about back door because back can be exploited not only by government but by a hacker. It's true. So there's nobody who's immune from that you can be, you know, clearing this, the driven snow and still get back door. Some people will tell you that they don't they're not concerned if the government has access to their computer and can spy on them and stuff. But what I'm saying is as long as the whole exists. Anybody can plug it right? It could be a riot or stand that what you're saying. The Russian mafia exploring your hard drive. I think there is the point that I think more scared of the US government than I am of the Russian mafia, no offense rushing. The I respect pros but, you know, they've never targeted me directly. So it's for that reason I, I've never had reason to fear them, but the US government targets made repeatedly. So I'm SC. Scared of them, you and the us, okay? In this room have a different operational type security little different. Yeah. I mean so what we're looking for what we need is going to be different than your average, your average is our needs is, they just need to keep them, our off the computer and so, but the problem is once they pick us off. You know, there have to be people left to run the revolution. And, you know, we need, you know, people the, the revolution, if and when it comes will be an information war, and in order to win an information war, you have to have a better more honest network than they do because the with the victory condition is to obtain enough truth. So my whole thing was, was once people understand how much, how much effort though that our government goes through to find out everything they can about them, once they can track you no matter where you go. That will finally wake people up. No. Then Edward Snowden came out. Did exactly that. And people still asleep. Yeah. Exactly. People don't feel. They have a reason to fear the government yet. But why did government build this capability up because they're gonna give you reason to figure them? I don't think that's necessarily the case. I think people have should have. They do have reason to fear the government. They just don't know it most. Oh, yes. If you're, you're right, most people, you're absolutely right. Yeah. I think there are some people who know it because they have been victims of the government, more so than others. They've been targeted by you know, basically bureaucracies and the needle in those Baraka Christie's, whereas other people are just targeted not so much the rebel directly. But indirectly through taxation and things of that nature. Yeah. So you know they'll complain about it. But it's not quite the same thing as being thrown in jail cell. I think it's going to happen. I think there will be some program that will be unpaid. Palatable to a large number of people. I don't know what it is. I don't know what they're going to do think there's, though about the harms that are there already suffering, because they understand that they're that they're losing income, and they're the problems are actually caused by the socialism, which is supporting them if they take one hundred dollars from you and they give you back. I don't know sixty six dollars. What you have less money to support yourself. I got a refund. Yeah. But you know they have right. Criminalizing people because the, the, the game was spelled out by an rand. And this is why she's a she's, she's a profit, okay? She said, we don't pass these laws to be obeyed. We pass them to be broken because no one can rule a nation of free men, you can only rule criminals. So if you're society, doesn't produce enough criminals, you make them you make so many things illegal that I can't turn. Around without breaking one of your laws, and then you cash in on the guilt and the fear, and I screwed up the last couple. That was part from at look. Absolutely. And that is an idea. There's, there's been a number of studies that show that the average person. Commits three felonies per day not crimes not misdemeanors. Three felonies that there is a criminal act on the book somewhere. And if you want a really fun read over to Twitter pull up a crime day, and they will illustrate the most ridiculous things that are crimes, you know, like you know how many this is this is one that just got rolled back. But the government made it a crime to put not enough perfect cherries in a frozen cherry pie. A certain percentage always had to be perfect. They had a percentage of, of cherries that could be frozen and could be, you know, slightly marred. But if you violated that you just committed a felony, there's another. Another. There's a lot more common things that people do like the labels on cans of certain types of products that are in your cleaning cabinet, if you miss if you put those on and you don't use it. Right. That's phoning too. Right. So, and that can be very simple because who doesn't use Coca Cola to clean parts.

We do three hours of radio every night, three hundred sixty five days a year because we love it. And this is an open show. Open phone show that means you can call in, if you don't like what we're talking about lately. We've been talking about a woman who allegedly died of marijuana overdose. According to Saint, John, the Baptist parish coroner Christie, Monte, Montague. And I, I guess that's how her name is pronounced and we're all skeptical as our people in lots of other government agencies which is refreshing to hear that they're actually looking at this will the same skepticism.

So back to this insane story, again, Christie Montague, who is the coroner in Saint John? The Baptist parish. Made this allegation. We've got people with, you know, the White House people from the national drug control policy offices. These are not people that I would expect to agree with me on something like marijuana or intoxication or death by sup in that everybody seems to feel is a relatively safe drug. They have not attributed at the federal level, a single death due to tetrahydrocannabinol THC, the ingredient in marijuana that gets you high. And they're, they're trying hard to change that. But they're gonna have to show me more on this case. Yeah. And it it's partially due to my ignorance. I don't know what a safe blood level of TA wiz. I just know we've never found fatally unsafe. Listen, listen, even if this is even if it can kill people. It's still wondering. It's insignificant. It's not something to worry about or so much more likely to get killed in some other way than smoking. It's just I would be so sad if we had to go from zero to one death. I mean, I would still gonna make you know, I would still put up a parody of the marijuana signed clicking over from zero to one deaths with aspirin below it at millions. And, and, you know, right. Called this incest in, I think is the name of the company and maybe I mispronounced it because this company was a cesspool, and these people were peddlers of fennel, okay? And they just got convicted. Yes. Well, it re I remember and I looked it up. It was the same company that I called six months ago to complain because they donated half a mil. Million dollars to keep marijuana illegal in some state at I was mad at them. And I ask them at the time, are you afraid of losing market share because opiates desk, do drop by twenty five percent when marijuana's legalized, and of course, they got huffy hung up on me. I lot in the stream of things that I want to take 'em bridge, too, and Dino, tilted against I, I lost track of it. Yeah. I was I was gonna pull up a book, I would highly recommend if anybody is interested in the, in one of the ways in some of the ways that they're finding out how effective medically assisted treatment is in treating opioid addiction. The book is called dope, sick dealers doctors and the drug company that addicted Americans by Beth Macy. I just finished fast me because one of the reasons that I was selling weed was because some of my prophet was going so that when people said, hey, man, I'm trying to hit kick heroin, and it's killing me. I could say here smoke. Some weed with me. Yeah. Okay. And come back, anytime and smoke with me for free. And if I know you're trying to kick I will smoke with you. Right. And you know. They should asked. I hope that we. The thing is, and this is why this story infuriates me it is an effort by some people to, to paint marijuana as something. It is not, you know, people have been you know, you've read this headline. Somebody's somebody, you know, is set it, you know, it's just a plant it grows. You don't even have to try to grow pot yet, throw some seeds down, and half of them are gonna accidents grow on their own. It's that easy to grow really is. But they're trying it's always been a part of human life. It has. But we're, we're still reverting back to the same tired trope that started in the nineteen thirties that God forbid you smoke, marijuana, you're gonna wanna day, jazz musicians and have sex with quote, Nick rose, unquote. And I say quoted, I'll tell us that was a quote that was introduced into the federal record when these idiots were testifying in the thirties before congress. And I'll tell you what from July eighth of nineteen eighty seven which was my. Sobriety date in I decided to smoke weed again. You know, after I turned forty which was in two thousand and nine I never stopped wanting to have sex with negroes and jazz musicians. In some cases, not all of them, but it's never changed. His it has nothing to do with the weed. There's just cue people out there of all, races, and musical taste. Where we've got stone calling in from New Hampshire stone. You're on free talk live. What's on your mind? Hey guys, just wanted to call in and discuss the festivities coming up in a I guess, just over a week. Great though, fast for fist. We have many folk fest fork, you guys. You guys we spent time you probably remember me, I would hope but I was gonna talk about forecast. It's yes it is. Okay. But so it's one of the most unique places like the way of the future. Hopefully is what I would hope the electric unicycles something that I've been writing the past few festivals is one of the unique things that you don't really see anywhere else. Nowhere else have been have. I seen so many electric unicycle riders. Also, the I guess, the segue the smaller segues. I mean there anyway, just wanted to comment that, it's, you know, it's exciting for you, and y'all and let everyone knows it's an amazing time the way of the future, these unicycle things. What, what, what Richard asking you sell them. Can you provide rich place to guy electric unicycle? Oh, that's funny. You say that because I had a well, the solo wheel actually, no, I had a swag, roller was the first one ahead and that costs like about eight or nine hundred I think, or no don't costs three hundred. Okay. Of. You want me to say, let's words. That's cool. So so are people actually using these things on, on the sidewalks and things like that in bigger cities, or, or is this sort of still kind of a real niche thing? That's what I'm saying. It's, it's relatively initiating. If mostly is like a lot of cities have the scooters, which is kind of like a really inferior sort of product. Right. So, like I said, the swagger, my first electric unicycle he's actually had to heels, but they rolled together little more stable than the unicycle, but it's only about ten miles per hour. So I've upgraded got now goes about. Our channel very cool. Hey, stone for rent, I'll take we hope to see up at pork fester at four best, eight fifty five four fifty free.

This is free talk live, eight fifty five four fifty free. That's our toll free number. That's free is in freedom. Eight five five four five zero three seven three three. It's me in studio. Chris Christopher one and the nobody formerly known as Rich Paul. There we go. So you get three of us in our second hour tonight, three three three hosts in one. Our second segment of our second hour. So. We, we've been talking about this insanity coming out of Louisiana, which is basically trying to allege according to one corner that a woman died from marijuana. THC ingestion. And, and she has all sorts of theories like how she was getting this. He says it was likely through vaping device with highly concentrated THC oil. Talks about in impairment numbers, which are simply made up and they go on to talk about a couple things here while there's not a specific threshold considered by experts to be a lethal dose, based on his research, the full who's a specialist. They talk about earlier in the article estimates that any threshold would likely fall between one hundred and a thousand times, higher than the THC level found in the la- place. Woman's blood. Has has a right. It was a insignificant dosage. Yeah. Past estimates have suggested that a person would need to smoke more than how many joints to reach Pathet, potentially lethal. Talk city nine Chris, you have to give one guess. I have no idea thousand higher. I think you would have to roll a single joint the size of a telephone pole in strap your face to it. Paul. I am looking for a number of joints. What is your guest? We have one thousand I said that was low I would say twenty thousand. I don't know how you do this past estimates suggested that a person would need to smoke more than twenty thousand joints to reach a potentially lethal. TA. You gave answer. Rich knows. I don't know what's floating around in my brain or where it came from all I do is take pieces of information and synthesize them. And I'm trying to wilder we'll build a worldview out of this in the world is trying to kill me. So have been an input along the way that you may have heard that number four high. Well, if heard kinda been on hundreds of shows, somebody may have set it to, you know, but, you know, I try to look up sources at the time. So I remember the right numbers in either case you did guests the number. That at least this article uses still, there's no way to be sure how much THC was in the women's system when she died. The full said, I has by the time in autopsy was done the THC concentration which falls quickly certainly gone down marijuana continues to have a schedule one designation by the federal at the federal level. Meaning it has no, quote current accepted, medical use on, quote, according to the federal government. Even though numerous states have moved to legalize it for medicinal uses or for recreation Louisiana's recently taken steps towards allowing marijuana for medicinal uses starting after former governor Bobby Jindal signed a Bill in two thousand fifteen which created a framework for distribution of medical marijuana so honesty. I think I need to correct. That one one thing, though, my first guest was ninety one and that was wrong. But I remembered that from somewhere else that was this dude, I know claim to smoke ninety one joints and he didn't die, and I couldn't attested smoke that many joints, but he did look pretty lively to me. So I'm sure he didn't die. There you go. We're going to go to the phones where we've got Dave calling in from New York. Dave, you're on free talk live. What's on your mind? Guys. How're you doing?

And, and a lot of alcohol, also, I loved alcohol, what I was a kid and alcohol, doesn't make me smarter and kids, I make light of cocaine and alcohol use but those two are dangerous drugs. And you know, I'm not gonna I'm not gonna lie to you about weed. But I'm not gonna lie to you about cocaine and or hall either and those are bad drugs. That's why the producers don't want we legal. Yeah, you know what else is bad when you're president continues to violate the constitution. It looks like he's going to do it yet again. But fortunately, this time we don't have a bomb in office. So we don't have to worry about them coming, after our guns or anything like that, right. Well, except silencers next because one of those is used in the news highlighted it. That's right. We did have a silencer. Trump says he's seriously looking at banning gun silencers. According to this comes to us from Bloomberg President, Donald Trump says he's seriously going to take a look at Lund, banning gun silencers after last week's mass shooting in Virginia gun silencers can make gun silencers out of your hand or something, right? Like, oh, well. Tayo can use a potato you use to Wieder bottle. Does that mean like potatoes are illegal now? We're going to be illegal, rob anything that can go around the barrel, sits of fixed to the barrel. If reveal gun lies going to apply. So you would have to do something to the potato to make it a fixable to the barrel. So if you, you know, once you've put stuck at potato on your gun, you have discard that potato and select a new one. And if you're going to carry potatoes in your car with your gun, you might want to cover carry some olive oil and a camp stove, okay? Because then you have all the fixings to go out and shoot some pheasant and make yourself. Okay. I'm gonna throw off your the whole thing. You're painting here and saying you should also have condoms, you should always have condoms. Right, right. Right. But hear me out when you are in danger of getting something in. In the barrel of the gun condom is a very easy thing to slip over the India, rifle and protect it. So if you're out in the woods, and it's raining condoms, a good thing to have. I know. So if you're right. Does sex please. Condom. But yes, you could place a condom over your barrel and then slided into a potato and now you have a silencer another thing on so sexy. This is a real thing is and they're they been trying to get these band, but it's basically a coupling device that will screw onto the end of like a are fifteen standard thread in there. And then on the other end, it has the standard threading of a oil filter, and this is a filter silencer the idea that you could use a oil filter or a fuel-filter fill it up with a little bit of oil. And that will deaden the sound as, as it goes out and technological things like that can make a huge difference in quality like quality of life, because I don't I didn't walk around wearing hearing protection when I carried a three fifty seven which I did for twelve years. And if I had to shoot in self defense, I might well of lost my hearing even worse than I have one of the reasons. I love being on radio is the only time I can hear you clearly. And so the I don't want that any and partially that's from firing guns without hearing protection shooting in the woods, so silencers might have saved a big punk of my hearing. And there have been bills before congress to enact a safe, basically a law that would remove, so let's talk about the legality of silence. Silence such thing as a silencer. Let's wrap using this word is it makes it less nerve deadening Lee loud, right? Ukwa fire or something that modifies his noise, but doesn't actually lower it possible. But where we are today you can legally own, you can buy and own a suppressor for, you know, a handgun for rifle doesn't matter state, right? They can legally be made what this these are covered under the national firearms act was passed in nineteen thirty three nineteen thirty four back in the thirties. But they added this as an as a taxable item so they couldn't just outlaw these by taxable item. You don't meet just mean they made it more expensive. You have to buy a tax stamp for two hundred dollars. Right. That's exactly correct. So you can go and apply to purchase a, a suppressor the power to tax is the power to destroy right? And, but they realized that, that was the only way they could get around the secondment was to call this thing attack. So if you pay the two hundred dollars tax and received the stamp, then you can wait about six months until all the paperwork done at at bat. The bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms and explosives. And you will finally be able to go to the gun shop and pick up your suppressor taxation is theft and requiring attacks on guns. Is your second amendment actually, like, say you have to get tax stamp back? Where does it just say you have to pay for the view? You have to change your address with them. They have to track where it is all the time. It's contributed like a machine gun. It is a physical stamp if that your question stamp. Counterfeits. That's a good question. I'm not get into this story who nobody got time for that. Don't do the crime do the time. Here's what Trump says. Well, I'd like to think about it. Unquote. Trump said in an interview with Pierce Morgan on itv's, good morning Britain, quote, I'm gonna get. I'm going to seriously look at that unquote. While Trump said he didn't quote love on quote the idea of a ban. He was also unhappy to see the frequency and severity of mass shootings in the US. So quick. Somebody name me, another mass shooting that involved a suppressor on a rifle or handgun isn't this? The first anyone I have never heard of it before. Yeah. I think it's I think for a mass shooting this probably occurs as frequently as tax with bump stock. Why would you need happened? Exactly once. Why would you need a suppressor on a mass shooting? You're shooting up presumably, some sort of roomful on your intent is to terrorize certainly not to save anybody's hearing. Right. So yeah, there's a big question as to accept tonight is really painful, what had happened today? Watch our understand what happens when you shoot a gun in a closed room and then consider that it's actually hurting. You which makes it a lot worse. Right. Does it actually like, you know, was it actually used or do they just have it or what was the what's the story behind? I have not followed the store, didn't look into a real closely one or two, curb at a guy went into a municipal office down in somewhere, close to Virginia Beach. Virginia me went in. He was an employee of the town where the city he went in with a suppressed rifle are suppressed handgun any began killing people. I guess, maybe his thought was, I can go longer, if nobody hears that I'm shooting and I'll be able to kill more people. I don't know what would have given it away that those things don't silence. They suppress still out absolutely eight fifty five four fifty free. What do you think should Donald Trump just basically banned guns one part at a time till we get the whole thing done? I wanna hear from you. This is free. Talk. Live and you thought things couldn't get more infantile aesthetically, insulting than Furby cash or Katy Perry.

This is free talk live, eight fifty five four fifty three that's freeze and freedom. That's our toll free number eight five five, four five zero three seven three three can call in and join the fun, we've been talking about Trump, this staunch defender of your second amendment protected rights is looking to band guns silencers, because my God, one of those was used in a mass shooting, and through been your fake news. Mr trump. Bragging, my brain trying to come up with another example of, of silence or, or suppressor to be more accurate suppressor has been used in any kind of mass shooting or even murder. It's happened because they call things mass shootings that they wouldn't have called mass shootings twenty years ago. That's how they make it appear. Like they're more mass shootings than there used to be down to, like, four people. Yeah. They keep lowering the number in this case, I think there's been twelve people that had died, and I'm gonna go ahead and concede that I'm going to call that. A mass shooting. Somebody walks into a workplace that was absolutely it and shoots. Twelve people dead then. Yeah. Okay. You might my threshold. Yeah. Well, the, the thing is, and this is why I do believe that we should disarm the bureaucrats and disarm the police because they are the most likely to wrongly kill somebody out there. There is no group out there. More democrat, and demographically likely to also forty percent spousal abuse abuse rate. Can't point that out enough. No, you can't. We're gonna go to Vernon New Orleans, Vernon. You're on free talk live. What's on your mind? I just wanted to point out what I heard the reason is. Silence. Or so he had worked there for many, many years. Not sure how many and he was intimately familiar with the workplace, and they said that he used the silence or so that he wouldn't tick off, you know, tip off other people that the shooting was going on. And he was able to maximize you met up kills he was able to have because he's the silencer, and that's why it, it went to up to three fours. I think, and so I think you all were asking in the last segment. What, what, what happened and I that's what I heard. So you may be correct. And but what I don't understand. I don't understand how this happened in the first place because I also read that this is a gun free zone. I mean, our guns automatically rendered useless. Let's put. Let's put this in perspective, the reason for the right to keep in bear arms. So we can resist the government if we have to now if you look at Nazi Germany, they were a nation of sixty million people at the outset of World War, Two, let's say they killed twelve million in the out in the in the holocaust. Okay. And that's twenty percent. So we're nation of three hundred million people, and so twenty percent of that would be one hundred fifty million. I'm okay with them taking away my gun rights as long as they don't take away my tank rights at Apia craft guns. We need anti aircraft gun rank of these those these mad idiots half. Plemmons. Exactly. I know you are advocates of gun rights, but I'm still trying to round my head around this silence. Or so let's just say that, that as human beings. What, what good is it to or not to have the silence? The only the only two facts, I think you'll have set tonight. Was that it it? Sure, right. It's your freedom, and it, it doesn't hurt your hearing. Are there any other reasons hearing thing is like one of the best realize that's the one that all step back to the DeVos scouts have been trying for years to get this law passed for safe hearing because they want to put them on the little twenty twos that they go out and teach riflery? Yeah. They want these things. It's a good thing to protect your hearing living. Second, you're not gonna hope and Kerry and have a silence on the end of of your gun. Right. Really? Sure about that. I would love to have a gun with a built in silencer, and they do make such threats under threat to actually put a silence on it starts finger to have a gun with a built in. So let me put it this way. What is it about a silencer that makes it makes gun more deadly? I'm asking you. I guess going back to what happened with this gnashing. Nobody, you know, nobody else really hear it going on. Room when what is suppressed weapon was fired. I have not okay shows go try it. Yeah. So, so here between fours if I was on the third floor, when I hear it on the first floor. No, would you hear a knife? They're much cloud. Yeah. Honestly. I'm not advocating that it should or shouldn't be banned. I don't try to understand your reasoning not wanting it to be bad. Okay. So this is it and what it comes down to two for me, it's not a gun issue because a silencer or a suppressor is not a gun. It is not a firearm. I'm not saying it shouldn't that there shouldn't be some regulations about them as laid out in. I'm saying that nineteen thirty four was the mistake when they even included it it's like saying that a hand grip apply piece of plastic. The attached to a rifle is a gun and therefore the government, Russ regulated. I'm saying that there should be no regulation to it. So, so I. First of all, as somebody who is also lost a lot of my hearing, and that was from pulling triggers in the military. There is a good reason to suppress these things, and it makes it safer for hunters, it makes it safer for anybody. And it's it's simply one of those things it's, it's like saying Trump is going to outlaw vanilla ice cream. It makes much sense to me as outline a suppressor for a weapon. The tool island or you know, besides the freedom argument besides hearing, how the tool of the silencer helps you know with with gun rights. When I don't care what I do know is that law's prohibition designed to make more felon. So you so they can strip us of our gun rights completely. They did it to me with a whole to a whole lot of hippies and hand, you're out of black folks with the war, because I don't care about the answer to your question. So I'm telling you what is important, and don't like, opinion. That's okay. Yeah, I'm not sure I think what he was looking for is outside of your, your right to keep and bear arms, and outside of keeping you from losing your hearing, what possible reason would silence or make sense to own other than that. How the play MRs Lincoln? That's some what you need. Yeah, I know that's, that's sort of the point. It's what more do you want? And you can't tell me that because one guy, one guy used one of these in a mass shooting that there's some epidemic that, that these things are a hazard. They're being used every. Mess killing in the last eighteen years of been used by suppressor. That's, that's not true. It's the exact opposite. Yes. Like the bump stock ban bump stocks got used once because responsible gun owner saw what for, for what it was, which was a novelty item. I can only remember one case where where a silencer of any sort was used it was a two liter bottle. It was used by a nervous. Husband, who wanted to kill his wife and her lover. And thought that the suppressor would prevent her lover from awakening. When he shot her. Well, of course, this didn't work. Right. Right. Got the guy anyway, the drop on the can't beat the element of surprise very often. But, but the, the reality is most people's awareness of suppressors, and they think silencer that's, that's the word press is used it. They get it from Hollywood. What? Vests. What is a how would they defining the? I don't know if these were Thailand are sound suppressor or whatever. But what is that? How is that the fine in the law? I mean what is that? Because it can you make a gun out of material that does the same thing, but it's not because it's not attached to it becomes, it's not a silencer or right? Yeah. What if the design of your gun just saves people's hearing? Right. Hold gun gonna be illegal to question. You have to go back to the national farms, three thirty four and read it because that's where it's, it's coda fide now the problem is, we have bureaucrats that are actually writing our laws for us. So somebody said, well, we need to address the question suppressors, because, you know, the law, we wrote back in the thirties that isn't really accurate. So, so come up with some guideline some up with some regulations that everybody now has to follow, even though they were written by people who were never elected, have no power to create a law. But in our but not the not true. Thirty thirty. That's a good point. But that's how we end up with this stuff and you know, there were three or four times when bump stocks went before the F, because the manufacturer bump stocks was going doing something illegal. And they kept coming back to him saying, Nope, this is not a machine gun. This is just a thing. And every one of those laws, give them the opportunity to make good people into felons, and then persecute them for the rest of their life, every time they pick up a tool. So the quarter of million people are so that actually bought bump stocks on one day went from being law abiding citizens to being a potential felons. Welcome to the club voice, exactly.

We've got a couple of people on hold. But the we in studio tonight is by self, Chris, Chris number one, and the nobody formerly known as Rich Paul. Yeah. It's, it's just we have to Chris's in studio. And I know is enjoy doing shows with you. You always bring an interesting perspective to whatever were discussing rich you and I are on a lot. And I enjoy doing shows with you. But when you have two people, the same first name, it does get a Ted confusing at. At. Either you can use. Either of them in they're both I we're gonna really start to confuse people. If I go by the name rich, exactly. He goes by the name Paul. Yeah. We are all Rich Paul. Nobody. We have been talking about Donald Trump making noises again, saying that he is going to take a serious look at the issue of suppressors. Of course, he uses the word silencers, and these things do not silence. Anything they make things less. Loud, not silent. There's a big difference there and advocates that say these things should be more legal than they are now right now. You have to pay a special tax stamp two hundred dollar tax to get one. You have to wait about six months, at least for paperwork to go through before you can even think about receiving one. So it's not something one would use in a crime of passion. But right now we're going to go to a lease in Maine lease. You're on free talk live. Hey, what's up what's going on? How are you tonight? Are you just wanted to call? Because I think the last caller before the break just wasn't on the right wavelength about oppressors, specifically owning them. Okay. I think, like, honestly, the most general point that I have is who cares what I wanna spend my money on, like, if I wanna go spend my money on clothes, or food, or suppressors. It really doesn't matter just because one person does something with an on jacked doesn't mean that I'm going to do the same thing. Right. The message shouldn't be suppressed just because of the, the whims of the of the might minority really. Yeah. I'm Nordia one in this case. Yeah. Food and clothing both been used as murder devices. Yeah. And that's a good. Well, maybe, I think yeah. It's and again, people are just brainwashed. They don't have the experience of even being around these objects yet. They wanna formulate all these, you know, crazy opinions on. Oh, we have to ban it there. You guys were right earlier this Hollywood that time you know, promoted this silence or Yuri lately, not silent at all. I would say for my own personal experience. It's picking something that unsuppressible damage your hearing for sure. Depressing it to a level where it is still wicked loud, right? But it might not damage your hearing. Yeah. Love plop, almost like a crack kind of your taking this super loud bang that will bam, you're hearing. Kind of popping profiting, the profit, Robert Heinlein wrote that there's no such thing as a dangerous weapon. There are only dangerous men. Yeah. And as long as you stay, a dangerous, man. They can't disarm you completely now. It's interesting. You were talking about the crack of a gun, and that actually is what suppressor does. It's a series of baffles inside of a tube and the two. Well, sorry, go ahead. It's all right. But as the round passes through this, it catches that what we hear as the crack of a rifle is the, it's literally, a sonic boom, a very small sonic, boom, that occurs because the bullet is flying wave faster than the speed of sound. And that's why another way you can cause something to be much more suppresses to use eve, if he were using subsonic ammo with suppressor, then you end up with something that gets really much much more. Oppressed. If you will does that make sense? You eliminate crack it's that crack that hurts drag kills. Yeah. There you go. Feel. I mean even with subsonic ammo you can still hear it. You know it's still very apparent in very obvious. What it is. But I wish that, you know, there's a larger point with this conversation. And I wish people would just identify it for what it is either the, the same people, calling for bans on these kind of objects are the same people that want to tell you what they eat. They wanna tell you what you can do or can't do these are the same people that were pushing lobotomies way back in the day thing on completely faith. Gotta do it that this is the only option that you can ever imagine, you know, doing, and it's just a really rich people to call it for what it is. I really appreciate your call. Thanks, thanks for calling in a lease. Yeah, you get that a lot. And I often hear people commenting on my Facebook page, and it's always the same cast of characters. But okay, come on. Chris, what about just some commonsense gun laws? You know, just just some common sense ideas, you know, do you really gun rights, then, do you really need thirty rounds prostitutional, right? To carry or what I'm going to say to say to him is, that's what about some common sense, government control? Do you really seventy eight alphabet agencies? Do you really need? Forty percent of the national income.

This is the most recent episode of free talk live, presented by Seiko CA. I get interactive at freetalklive dot com. Free talk live, eight fifty five four fifty three that's our toll free number. You can call us and let us know what's on your mind. We've been talking about suppressors my gosh, the Trump, the Trumpster is has got his eyes on another thing that previously had been protected by law by the second amendment, but he wants to take a hard look at that. But before we get back into that I do want to tell you about my magic mud mad magic Mudd is a black tooth powder. Yes. Black made from charcoal is coconut, shells, and Benton, clay. It is clinically proven to whiten teeth all I'm going to say is if you follow the directions that are right on the side of the packaging, you will get amazing results is, is sold in most health food stores including sprouts. CVS natural grocers. And you can even get it a WalMart in the natural beauty aisle. And if you use the code F, T L, twenty you will get twenty percent off your online. Order at my magic, mud dot com. That's my magic, mud dot com. So is Trump. Correct. In Sesing, these things is silent, but deadly his that where we're at am. I making playful fart jokes about him stealing more of my constitutionally protected rights. You know, the details don't matter because all they're talking about, is, what is the size and the scope and the magnitude and the nature of the abridgement of our rights. But the second amendment reads, a well regulated militia being essential necessary to the maintenance of a Free State, a well, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed will, she say are discussing the size in the shape of something that must not happen, regardless of size or shape? Oh, no rich. They're talking about militias winners, even have those things anymore. That's it's in the text Aves right there in the militia act. I believe is called the ballista act which is a federal law that was passed in nineteen eighteen the militia is constituted by the able bodied men and I, I would argue women under the constant. Seventeen seventy. Right. So that is what the militia is. The great object is that every man be armed. That's the militia, that's Tom Pame. That's common sense. I agree it is. It's insanity. And if you dare bring up, and I bring up the militia thing, tongue-in-cheek because people, assume that, that means a bunch of guys who wanna go play army on the weekends and pretend like they're patriots, and they're going to go, you know, and then they'll say this, well, you could never overthrow the US government. I mean, look at all the weapons that they have look at all of the tanks and all of the aircraft to which I usually reply with one question, and that is Afghantistan. Yeah. I mean here you have basically tribesmen who have defeated not one, but two superpowers have bogged them down. We have been in Afghanistan for twenty years, and we have scientists we have engineers, we have computer. Scientists the hacker ethic is liberty. Okay. The hacker ethic is information wants to be free. We are smarter than the government, if we work together, I will simply say that it if it ever did come to a shooting war, and I just, I don't want to see that happen. I would anyway to avoid it. But I, I hope there is one and anybody is trying to find a more peaceable solution. I wish you well I do too, but the idea that the government is going to ease up, they're going to start returning some of the rights that they have stolen. In from you, and I'm not talking about rights, that are just written on a piece of paper. The second amendment doesn't grant you the right to self-defence what the what the second amendment. There is therefore, is to protect your natural right of self-defense, you have this, when you are born. When you came out of your mother, you had a right to self-defense that wasn't granted to you buy a second amendment. It wasn't granted to you by any any government. It is part of the human condition. It is or if your if you're a godly person than it was granted to you by your creator. See whatever you're feeling is it did not come from government? Yeah. Now a pro life or would say the right to keep and bear arms. Would start conception not birth. Although it's largely a moot point, all right to free speech. Right. Right. Right. The phone where we've got Sarah, Colleen in from New Mexico. Sarah, you're on free talk live. You like that. To my head rich. Why are people always say that to me? Sarah, you're on free talk on what's on your mind tonight. Let me guess. Very field that you would have less pedestrian fatality if more of the drivers eight Lor. Meatless veggie Patty, you know what I. Hold you know what I is this, Sarah? Yes, I think that the world would have fewer traffic fatalities, if the US government would stop dropping bombs on the Iraqis. Well, they're driving. That's a good point too. So Sarah, let me get this straight. If more people because you really gotta go out on a limb to kind of understand this. When if more people would stop eating meat and start eating meat list, patties, then there would be fewer traffic fatalities. What that's what you say. I want to tie two things together that meatless Patty that I've been advocating for and pedestrian fatality because, you know, the meeting it makes you even ring. Have you any wonder it is not the figures? She's repetitive. Is always fresh. You need new material sweetheart, you know what compare combined compared to the crimes of the US government traffic fatalities in TOTO are nothing. So tell us tell us about something that's killing of people like the war in Iraq, and you'll get our attention. Absolutely, sarah. Thank you for your call. She is very concerned with traffic fatalities. This is a constant thing. I was kinda curious as to where she could possibly go with meatless patties. But I came to the same conclusion, you did, which was absolutely nowhere nothing. It's gonna make sense. Sometimes Sarah is it's so ironic that Sarah becomes like the car accident that you can't help but watch it really is really hard to look away from. I don't I cannot comprehend where she gets her news for, like where I mean, literally comes at a room out is like stuff that comes out of the onion, I think that wrong Oshii learned that a rectum could be used as a self sealing helmet and. Military guy understands. All time. Yeah. I don't know. She is very concerned about people being run over in New Mexico. The way she tells it, the, the streets are littered with dead and dying and we've never found anything that really backs that up statistically. But, you know, that's our point of view, and she will call in every single night to talk about it. We're not really that interested in talking about that. But we do want to continue on with Donald Trump. And why he feels silencers are deadly eight fifty five four fifty free. Give me a call. This is free talk live. Why did you move to the Shire? I moved here to the Shire because there's other people around who take liberty just as seriously, as I do I moved to the Shire, because I saw videos of people challenging authority and thought that I could get support myself. It called to me, like do this right now? I wanted to be around people like me who got it. And once I got here, I knew there was no or else, I wanted to be, I've always wanted to change the world. So I moved to the Shire, to join people who were actually working towards doing the same thing. The people here are awesome loving and positive. It was for the adventure. And for the feeling of something important is happening here. And I just wanted to come to sort of be part of that visit Shire, society dot com to read and sign the Shire, society declaration, and learn the reasons why if you love liberty you should immigrate to the Shire. Plus connect with others via the forum at Shire, society dot. Com. That's Shire, society dot com. So the protection of life, liberty and properties is what the Free State price felt about. But it's it's an effort to move twenty thousand people who understand it's about demonstrating to the entire country, we can have a free market truly fee market, making it just a great place to live. It's the world's largest while interests libertarian community, and it's, it's only getting bigger, that's amazing to be able to move to other people like passionately believe in being free. And independent, what the Free State project is managing to do, though, is to put their money where their mouth physically getting up across the country and saying, that's go someplace, let's demonstrate the power of these ideas. There's a lot of kind of philosophy that surrounds liberty. There's a lot of thinking about it and talking about it, but here in New Hampshire. People are doing one hundred one reasons.

Just kidding from survival speech dot com. I'm Holland Cooke. Now, more of the freshest episode free talk live presented by Seiko CA. I listen online at freetalklive dot com. Free talk live final segment coming up, but eight fifty five four fifty free. That's eight five five four five zero three seven three three. I was thinking our final segment we got two segments. So you can get in and get on the air and let us know what you think we've been talking about Donald Trump, that stout defender of our first amendment rights, trying to ban sup in that has nothing to do with guns. It is something that would actually make a gun, a little safer to shoot and safer at least four you're hearing. And because one wackadoo decided he was going to go in and shoot up some people, and he happened to have a suppressor on his handgun. That's how I understand it then, then by gosh, because one person did it in one single act and one single day than that. That means every person in the United States of America, who is otherwise allowed to, to legally purchase firearms to legally purchase certain firearms accessories. And by the way, can legally purchase fully automatic machine guns. You have that, right? The government says you have to pay an extra tax to do it, but you have that. Right. Because of that your President Donald Trump. And I wanna talk to Republicans were you guys on this. Is this, this just another bump stock to you? Well, it's not that big a deal and it's a Republican taking away, our guns. So, so we're okay with that, as, as a registered Republican, which I, which I am kind of accidentally, but I have that stigma next to my name. So I'm gonna get biology out of it. I can write it was. It's Ron Paul's fault, and I forgive, but as a registered Republican what I believe the position of anybody. Who is pro gun rights pro second amendment should be is that they should be working in their local state to organize a million man armed March, open carry March against tonight. It's okay, we want an end to denied us, and we want silencers of k we want the suppressors aren't good enough. We want silencers invented. Right. And it's, it's absurd. Somebody pointed out and discord that, well, that's not all. I mean you do have to get a background check and you do have to get this, and, and that if you if you want to acquire a suppressor you do have to fill out a background check. You have to get background check. You have to fill out all the forms. You'll have to submit a photo, you'll have to submit your fingerprints, I believe that's still a thing. You're gonna have to get permission of the chief law enforcement officer in your air. Area and New Hampshire, that's usually, the sheriff, the sheriff has to sign off and say, Yep. No problem. I have no reason to deny this person the opportunity to acquire something under federal law. That does not fire a bullet. That's the insanity. You can't. If you took a silencer by itself suppressor by itself, you can wack somebody over the head with it. You know. I mean you could web somebody over the head with your vibrator to is messed up is, you can carry you don't need to you. Don't need anybody commercial slipped to go out and buy gun in open carry it. Right. So if you don't be a producer for that. Why would you need for silence? Or if you if you do have to get a permission slip, if you buy it from a F, F L, or, you know, federal licensed better license that way. Right. You don't have to buy it that he if you wanted to buy a gun from me, and if you could offer me enough money to convince me to give up one of my one of my firearms I could sell you a gun person to person that is absolutely legal. They'll. To nobody because nobody is a felon, right? He was illegal for you to possess that new be illegal for me to knowingly sell it. You're but the point here. Okay, hold on. Nobody should be devoured, the use of arms when they're a peaceful person. I agree. Nobody is even even though it's illegal nothing actually, prevents him from going and buying a gun from another person. But these are special items, and this is what the national firearms act. Thirty four co defied was saying that no, the whole thing's futile, it is futile. It's silly, it's insane. But this was in response. Keep in mind, nineteen thirty four. This was after prohibition. This is when the, the country, did indeed face while wave of crime, you know. And it was due to people providing something that everybody wanted I who. And, and they were it was a black market created by the federal government with the sixteenth amendment. What I'm saying. I mean actually actually furthered it promoted it because it's legal. Well. More desirable. It becomes more desirable, right? Yep. It was a sad state of affairs. We're going to go the phones where we've got David in New Mexico. David, you're on free talk live. What's on your mind? Nobody likes e ED. I keep hearing that on the radio. So you've got like the because it cuts down the competition to me and that doesn't even rhyme a bet. You didn't know it. But I'm a poet, there you go. There. You know what you got? Right now is the first of all, you, they, they, they can't get past a concert of constitutional amendment, real repeal whatever that takes seventy percent. So their taxes tactics are to one what to do whatever throw and whatever sticks to the wall. And whether whether it's by passing lesser legislation in the famous statutes about long this outlying that, you know, everything, but trying to change the amendment because they can't get the and changed. The second amendment are you on the same page. We are talking about guns or. Yeah. Everything Mr. trying to completely alter the way they don't make the constitution. They don't like the rights that gives you and they can't they can't get enough votes to pass a constitutional amendment to repeal and amendment or whatever. And so they do it with all this other Bs and guns is one area. And, you know, my children were traffic because of the same thing because judges, and that whole port house cottage industry gets away with whatever they throw and sticks to the wall, whether it's bypassing statute or just by doing what they damn. Well, please, and then you've got to appeal decision, right, then legislate bench, they can make their decisions have the affecting color of law. And it's doing this. I'm sorry, that happened to him. Pardon? I'm sorry, that happened or your children men. They killed my wife, that's ended up in the fight. Got it. Yeah. Thank you appreciate that. But they're doing it in literally every few if you look at at any aspect of life. The government's got its fingers in it, and they're, they're taking this control in literally every area of your life, not just guns and not just children in parental rights doing everything Larry. And if you don't take large numbers don't take a firm, stand real soon. It's going to be all over with the only possibility after that being in an actual hot war. So and we talked about this we were talking about silliness, and, you know, and the Trump administration took great pride in announcing that they had done away with another ridiculous regulation that made it a felony to have a certain more than or fewer than a certain number of unblemished cherries in a frozen cherry pie. How what we do what the legislature of Idaho in its wins them. I will. Call them the honorable, please. Tell me I got the right state. Yes. I will. I will call one of those guys honorable if he voted for this, that I run into him, I will shake his hand and call him honorable, which I won't ordinarily do for them. But because they voted to drop the entire regulatory code. Guess what? I've been in hippie camps a lot. There's no regular coat regulatory code. Nobody's dies because we aren't stupid. Oh, you know what about on that subject? I've been there's been on the list while a actually right here, I was giving Boeing backup teeth the next Akot and Subcomandante Marcos. You know what I'm talking about. No Marco sit in her appeal. Rebel Indians, in Mexico, Chapas dumping pieces Subcomandante Marcos, all that anyway. I don't know about that. So without flushing it out. I don't know if we're gonna get your meaning. I, I can I can make it till you get you, can you can look it up later. But what they basically, they have no government and what, what other than what the minimum pay need. Here's, here's what they do. This is just a, you know, a number of thousands of people.

And even this is what frustrates me the most even the hard core gun rights, quote unquote, hardcore gun rights, folks. They just turned a the turn a blind eye to his actions. Well, it's, it's Trump, you know. So, you know, it's okay. We, we can take that. We're nobody really uses bump stocks anyway. Nobody really at buys suppressors. Okay. When we grow does it mad as part of the broke owed. Exactly. That's how it's treated. Yeah. And it's and it illustrates to me that this is all being orchestrated by a single group of people, who's that. Talking about an all gar, George Carlin called the club. I just, you know, I don't the big club and we're not part of it. I'm not going to say that we don't have an oligarchy, and I'm not saying that, that certain policies are put forth by certain people, what I am saying in this case, Donald Trump is a liar. And Donald Trump has again violated his campaign promises. You should not trust this man, why this all I trusted the guy ever looking at you. Chris. Tell you where Trump supporter, my they're all liars, and that the system is designed to filter out, anybody who isn't a liar. The system is designed to filter out anybody who is into crook. That's why libertarian party's party as always done so badly. Well, let me tell you in a system of unjust laws. Nobody is a crook K. Because the laws are in valid, nobody is a crook. What other politician is going to buy that vote for, nobody twenty twenty because I'll tell you the truth. Nobody tells you that truth and you are in the process of trying to get your name change to nobody. So you can go on the ballot and say vote for nobody I intend to run in order for the mayor of the city of Keene for the governor of the state of New Hampshire for the vice president of the United States, and I'm going to be seeking the nomination of the pirate party, and I'm gonna hope and I hope to draft verb. Supreme into doing this with me in the pirate party, and I am going to be running for secretary of the general of the United Nations. If I can figure out how, but I also starting nobody campaign. Okay. Not just me because I'm nobody this isn't about me were all nobody's in their system. So if you're, you know, mad Hatter and you wanna do something fun. I'm going to encourage you to, to legally change your name to nobody and get yourself on the ballot and the ballot. This show legally changed your name, and run for what ever and I guarantee you right now that nobody will vote for nobody because I'm nobody. So if we have above if we were writing cannot, none of the above. Nobody has to be synchronized the name change that ridge. What if you run as nobody, but you're faced with a challenge from somebody whose name is none of the above. Well my. What are relative ballot physicians? Because it comes down to where we are the better. If none of the above is matter. Nobody then none of the above disqualifies himself, and therefore, nobody should be elected if I'll ever none of the above is below. Nobody clearly the user intended to include. Nobody in the excluded set at therefore intends to vote for none of the above. Okay. No. I'm just going to say because somebody out there, that's what happens when you feed drugs to computer programmers that somebody out there listening to freetalklive, probably for the first time, and they think, well, these guys are just they're mocking our system of government. This is how victim of government is a joke. It's not my system of government. The guy who says that our system of government is not mind. Keep your head off my lawn. Exactly. And that's the idea. We will poke fun at your SIS. System if you believe that it represents she of you believe that it represents me, if you believe that it actually represents anyone, we're not only going to make fun of it. We're gonna make funny. You, you need to wake up and look at this and go did Donald Trump lie to you. Did Bill Clinton lie to you? Did Barack Obama light to you? Have they lied to your whole life? The answer's probably. Yes. Bill curtain was one of the he was the only person I ever voted for got elected. I voted for Dukakis I voted for Clinton, then I saw what Clinton did an office in his first term, and I voted for Clinton once once. Right. I might next vote was for Harry Brown, can I just clarify that figuratively? You saw what Clinton did in office? I mean I didn't see what he did with Monica. I. Clear way, too literal about the fact that he probably did support and perjury, which is a serious charge and oddly enough that got overlooked because of the risk gay factor instead of over analyzed because of the risk factor. That was a really good turn of luck quotation for them in the media. What I just wanted to say rich is I do enjoy doing radio with you, and people that have come forward and said that I know this about the Clinton I saw that they have met untimely ends and I didn't want you to be on some list. Well, you know what the last thing hammer obvi- said to that kid before he got shot. He told you can see his lips sear lips moving his lips whoever whatever it was on film, and it saying, I know something about Hillary Clinton. And I'm going to hold a press conference read, read hammer arby's, lips of my gosh. It is insane. I just and. And to, to go back to where we started with this, the idea that Trump found another inanimate object that he wants to ban it, it been Trump. I I'd love to. I would love to we got a bad Hillary to, let's ban all politics of that's easy enough, all in favor, how many people die corrupt. I there we go.

When it comes to choosing occasion, the kids will never forget Dylan. Theorists of atlas obscure knows some truly bizarre destinations. All of these places aren't places. You would actually necessarily want to take a family vacation or even could go. He's written a new guide for the world's most adventurous, kids, d day expert, Ellwood bun, cyber recommends what to see in Normandy to commemorate the events of June six nineteen forty four. If you want cemetery that any question of T national cemetery co fill, so mad about. It's also a busy time of year in Lisbon. Everything happens in June. We call it the month all the. Saints guides from Portugal. Get us ready to enjoy their charming capital. They are doing lots of beautiful renovation the facades. We the tiles, the as lasers as we say, find out what's new in Lisbon, explore the sights of the D battles, and surprise the kids with the world's curiosities on today's travel with Rick steves. It's a trip that many Americans rate among the most moving of their lives will commemorate, the seventy fifth anniversary of d day. With the advice of historian, Ellwood von cyborg. He covers the sites. You can explore from the allied invasion of Nazi-occupied, France. That's just a bit and guides from Lisbon update, us on what to see and maybe even what to skip this year. When you visit their lively city, the world, really does offer an endless parade of wonders for travelers hatless obscure started as an online collection of bizarre and obscure places and things around the globe. Then it became a bestselling book to stimulate curiosity at an early age. They've now published the atmos- obscure explorer's guide for the world's most adventurous kit, it profiles, one hundred of the most extreme mysterious and weird. But true places across forty seven countries for a look at what they've found we're joined now by atlas obscure co-founder Dylan. Earth. Dylan's. Welcome. Thanks for having me here. So you use the word extreme in the beginning right off the bat. That's a trendy word. And it, it does resonate with people, what's an extreme site in here we use the word extreme because we wanted to sort of frame, what kind of book, this is all of these places aren't places. You would actually necessarily want to take a family vacation or even could go. So, for example, snake island on the coast of cell Paulo, the only people who are allowed to go. There are the Brazilian navy and you have to get permission. If you actually want to visit travel with the doctor, don't you? That's right. You have to travel with the doctor who has the, the anti-venom with them just in case so take the kids, it's wonderful thing to know about not something we are necessarily advising and you make a summer adventure around. So that's the extreme also opened the book with a beautiful sentiment. You're inspiring them to reach out. You say dear adventure, we're about to tell you, one of the greatest secrets to exploring are you ready? Here it is. You are already somewhere amazing. So that's gives you a peek at the philosophy this book, doesn't it? That's exactly right. And one of the things I've been going around and giving presentations to groups of kids in cafeterias, and libraries, and one of the things I always try and get across at the end is I bring up wonders that are close to wherever we are. So it's important that it's not just about, you know, someplace off in Australia or Peru, that there's a place in rural New Jersey, that is just as incredible and has a wonderful story to be told. It's reminding them that it's about a, a frame of mind and less about, you know, putting miles around the world. Yeah, you say this book is your pest port to a world of hidden possibilities. I love the fact that you don't need to be rich. You don't have to have a passport, you don't have to parents to take you to China. You can be wonder struck by the world just by going downtown. That's right. I had a good personal example, not too long ago, which is I grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota. And it turns out that a couple of miles from my home is. Lab called Orpheus labs that was home to a place that was nicknamed the world's quietest room and ano echo chamber where he could sit inside. And I got to do this, slowly, you're able to start to hear the sounds of your body, and it's really wild. Experience is a perfect example of lived there for fifteen years. And I had no idea that was there. I love that. And it also distanced inspires kids to think of science as part of exploring the world. Clearly, you could look through this book and not leave your living room and kind of venture into zones where you get excited about science or excited about history are excited about nature. You've got a chapter on the, the super collider and a ten thousand year clock in Texas and wave of Norway, this fall, barred global see developed talk a little bit about those from a kid's point of view. Yeah. I mean a couple of those and just to explain how the book works you travel all around the world. The connections are the Matic. So you might start in Texas at this ten thousand year clock. This clock that's being built and is made to run for ten thousand years. It's going to take once a year, and I think chime everyone hundred and, and that's an example of long thinking of sort of thinking about the future. And then vol barred the seed, volt in Norway is another kind of example of that similar idea where it's planning for a long, long time in the future to keep genetic diversity safe. And so we wanted to sort of show kids, not just wonders around the world. But some of the interconnections ties between these things so really takes a young brain to news owns that they might not have thought about like the future. That's right. It and it lets them kind of make exciting connections. And hopefully opens up questions. So you tell them about the cashew Chaka in Peru. The last Incan bridge that's woven out of grass and has been remade each year for hundreds of years, going back to the, the height of Incan empire. And then you connect that with the root bridges in India, which are grown out of the roots of to fake so Asoka trees. And hopefully out of that kids come away thinking these bridges are incredible. But I wonder what other kinds of of, you know, Arbor texture are there other buildings grown out of plants. Does this exist elsewhere in the world ideas, hopefully, this, you know, sort of sparks many more questions and Qwest's Arbor Tech's? Sure I love it, and just for a kid to be exposed to that a kid even at my age, big poster that you kind of go. Now when I'm exploring the world I can look for Arbor texture. We're talking about the wonderfully weird places and things kids like to explore right now on travel with Rick steves, our guest, Dylan Thrace, his cO pound that missives gear up and co author of the new hatless obscure explorer's guide for the world's most adventurous kit. Their website is at the skier dot com. And when I read through the book, it feels like a celebration of diversity, as, if you've got an agenda nut to be looking at the world from an ethnocentric point of view, which is a real challenge for a lot of Americans, especially in this day and age when I think we're more fearful, and we tend to be more ethnocentric was that accidental or in my picking up something that you actually have a political agenda here. You're certainly picking up the right tone. I don't know that it came in as a political agenda, but I think the core of outlets obscure es about celebrating the diversity, and plurality of the world and reminding people that what they think of as normal is bizarre to other people in the world, and, and, you know, the things that we think are on our quite regular and mundane and other places. And so just to celebrate some of that diversity is where you derive joy in travel and experiencing the world that's definitely baked into it. But I for me, it's almost a political because it goes, a little bit deeper than that it goes to like the human soul. Yeah. I was being a little silly to say political, but I'm just saying that it's unfortunate that being open to diversity has to be political in, Sandra. But what we're doing is letting kids know that our culture is not the center of everything, and that you could actually remind, hey, the people on this planet, who sit on something when they go to the bathroom, or the oddballs, because most people don't need a toilet. There's these kind of Eureka's you get when you travel and you can gently we've them into this education that your book provides. You also start the book with a packing list. And you've got some interesting things included. I noticed a couple of things that I wondered are you thinking about something in specific. You have an Elta meter. Yeah. Well, we send kids these sort of explorers to very high, and very low low places. So we just figured it was good to keep that in mind. You know, if you're going to be taking a submarine down to the, the satellite graveyard off of New Zealand that, that would be an interesting place to use that. And so. Aware that you're going to venture high and low, and you should be prepared. Exactly. And, you know, the packing list is somewhere between practical and acknowledging that some of these places are, are slightly off of a standard traveler out of like a Geiger counter. I don't I hope I'm not gonna take my kids with a Geiger counter. But if you were going on offense trip, what would you need a Geiger counter for? Well, I'll tell you and when my kids are a little older, I would actually like to take this trip, even though people eyebrow shoot up, but to noble and we've run some trips as an organization to your noble bit. It's ironic because people think immediately of my gosh. Why would you wanna go to this radiated zone? Right. There's that history. But it's overtime become in a lot of ways like nature preserved you do bring a Geiger counter just to be sure and to check. But there's more radioactive background in parts of Manhattan than there are in much of journal. So it's actually a very different and kind of a beautiful natural experience, besides all of the fascinating disturbing, kind of history of Chernobyl. So. To think about something that they wouldn't think about otherwise. Absolutely. And you've got goat treats one of the ten essentials. What are you gonna need? Golden treats floor. Why don't you need treats? Well, there's a few possibilities, but one, of course, is the, the tree climbing goats of Morocco and go to climb everywhere. But, you know, in parts of Morocco, you can see multiple goats hanging out in the trees, and we just thought it would be generous to bring them something good ties, many times, I've wished I'd had a few go treats, but I didn't have your book. This is traveled Rick steves or talking with Dylan thrust. And the new book is at missive scare explorer guide for the world's most adventurous kid when handy feature in the book is you latitude and longitude you can actually type it into your smartphone, and it goes right to that spot on Google maps, and that's a fun springboard for learning to let the kids, delve more deeply into the places you feature in the book, and I think it just for us. This is a feature sort of across the website and the book for adults. Way of reminding people this is the world that we all share. These are not sort of fantastical made up places you live on this planet with all this wonder and incredible location, there's this sort of grounding it in that in one thing, I noticed about the book is, it's a little more honest, and thoughtful than some other older books in this genre. The Ripley's believe it or not kind of approach to the world. Yeah. It was it was important to us. There's sort of both when you're talking about strange in unusual things. There's a tendency to sort of have it be couched in this, isn't it weird, isn't it? So spooky isn't it? Whatever and kind of disrespect the subject matter. And the same thing happens with kids. So oftentimes, it really gets to be kind of almost patronizing to kids who actually at ages. Eight to twelve I think are quite capable of coming to their own conclusions about stuff. So we just sort of wanted to present these things in their Ernest wonderful amazement and not tell kids feel about them. And I think that works, really well, I think kids understand they respond to. To what's interesting about these locations in the history, and the signs. So Dylan in that regard tickets to China and talk about a couple of things that you thought would be inspiring for young travellers to know about short in China. We talk about the fact that rice sticky rice was used as a part of the mortar for the great wall of China. And presumably, if you went looking for it, maybe you could sort of find you know, you can find archaeological evidence of this, and then we take kids to Mongolia, and talk to them about a library that is not a building. But in fact, comes on the back of a camel because kids, there are so rural and remote that the library has to come to them, and it's a great, we could have done a whole series of borough libraries in Mexico and South America. And just reminder again that the way that kids live in people live all over the world is filled with delightful difference, and pluralism. And that is that itself is, is one of. The wonders of the world. That's really the spirit of this book. It's the spirit of atlas obscure in general. I think Dylan Thurs. Thanks for sharing your atlas obscure approach to the world in a package designed for the world's most adventurous kid, thank you so much. You'll find links to our guests with the notes for each week show at Rick, steves dot com slash radio guide from Lisbon, tell us what's happening, and they're arming city and just a bit. But first, a top rated guide to the day sites. Normandy helps us commemorate the seventy fifth anniversary of the d day landings on June sixth. That's next on travel with Rick steves. The beaches of Normandy, hold the memories of thousands of soldiers and civilians, who fought and died during the day landings of American British and Canadian troops since nearly all of that generation have passed on we now have to rely on history, experts to relive the stories of the liberation of France. And how that led to the end of Nazi tyranny in Europe in World War, Two some years ago, I had the pleasure of touring the DA sites in northern France, with military historian, Ellwood von Siping, Elway moved to Saint Mary Igli to fulfill his lifelong dream of guiding others around the important, battlefield cemeteries, and memorials in normal. Let's revisit an interview we had that first aired on travel with Rick steves ten years ago for the sixty fifth anniversary of the DD landing. I would think joining us think if I'm not supposed to be, so why did you move to Normandy, I moved to nominate because I had a passionate interest in World War Two many, many as ever since I was a tiny boy, and at this stage in my life. I've realized that the moment was ready when I wanted to leave my work, and I wanted to get an fulfill a lifelong passion by telling people about the history, we such houses for a long time. We found a lovely house in the most historic tone of something that was the first city that was liberated was very first one to be liberated by the US, the kickoff point really that is great now do Canadians, and Brits and Americans. All go to Normandy, with the same sort of interest. Yes, they do. They must definitely to people from all over the world on all coming to no money to look at what happened there on the sixth of June and the subsequent days, almost all of the world is interested in that part of the world. It's really quite incredible. Wherever I go people sometimes ask you where do you live? And you say. Somewhere lease. And then they alright they all know this famous little town. I remember the beginning of saving private Ryan the movie there was a veteran going back to the Normandy, the cemetery there. Yes. And his grandchildren. I think just didn't get it and they're all lighting happy, and he was really moved. Yes. How do you prepare people are, what advice do you have for people who are going to Normandy to, to properly get it? I always ask people what preparation they've done in the sense. Have they read any books and have they seen any films? And the majority of people have done that the books, of course, any mount books month because the Stephen Ambrose auguries most famous of American historians. Many, many people of read his lengthy books on denied and that gives people a good of rule. Well rounded appreciation of data and its subsequent events. So have some background before you go there. Indeed, I shit. I think it's very important, and that obviously three films that I've like then recommend people prior to that coming on one of those aged wonderful film, the longest day made as long ago, as nineteen sixty three broadly, and it may be old. It may be ancient and daring, the Shelton black and white, and it's time, but it is a very, very good portrayal of the events leading up to date. I then saving private. Run. Everybody knows that film. And that I think was a film that broke the mold in many respects of the portrayal of on conflict. And then, of course, you've caught bound brothers. I think it's sort of pinnacle, if you will, of realism, and that features the build up to day from the Ebola perspective, apple and put a few is it possible to visit d day and make it worthwhile as day trip from Paris. Yes. My son is, in fact, I would say fifty percent of the people that I take round they quite simply catch a train from Paris from the Gulf son ZOA, and I pick them up in council, and we do days to will be it. It's, it's short compact. And I take them back to count on station in time to catch the six trading. And this is in that favorites restaurant by nine o'clock ferris in date. So many of us have such limited time. If you're going to be selective and have a powerful experience. What are the top two or three sites? He just got us, e the sought, you must see without any question of dodges, obviously, you've got to see summer lease as used to face of the first time to be liberated. And then I would say. Plumbed hawk. And then I would say, I'm a hobby, culminating, if you will in the, in the, to the American national cemetry at kill Vilma. So punt a hawk that's where you get the craters and the German, he'll boxes gunning stations and you get this dramatic bluff, feeling and imagine the climbing up that yes. And then Omaha beach, that's where you walk on the beach the center of the invasion. Yes. And then just above that bluff, is that where we have the American cemetery thought is correct to Omaha beach? You're also saying that famous immature we always see us in days and what museum, do you think is the best one that captures the, the story of the Normandy, landings? That's a very hard questions once they're all so many museums around that. And if you had just one museum to go to I think the app museum that some parodies, it self is it probably will give you the most well rounded, experience my favorite museum is when incon- C E N the museum and cone, if you will is trying to remind people that peace is the objective that we should will be no striving towards. I would. Not disagree with that onto any circumstances. But it doesn't try it doesn't attempts. It's not a war. But indeed, it's has a lesson. It finishes with Nobel peace prize thing. Yeah, indeed. I found it was a good look at war in the twentieth century, and it celebrates the Nobel peace laureates. Yes, is very moving. But you're right. If you wanna real warm use Iem you can find it at you say, the airborne museum. That's right. And if you want one cemetery if you want cemetery without any question of the national summitry at co fill so above a mob, H. And what about a German cemetery? Job asymmetry is the place called comb. That is by far, the most of all the German cemeteries, thought it was very effective, because it reminded me let a German kits this late in the war, wasn't Hitler was like dig deep for people to fight. Yeah, indeed. So you got sixteen year olds there by twenty two thousand are in the amazing. I'm with Elwood vans eyeballed, and we're talking about day and normally landings in World War Two. And let's talk with Michael in Cincinnati. Comment on the what a powerful in experience. It is to visit at Omaha beach. You consider the blood and treasure that we left on it beach. It's such a beautiful places meticulously cared for it's a really serene, peaceful kind of visit, and, you know, there's so much history, there took my son in two thousand and five, and we just really enjoyed the experience to Mont people, by the way. That's when you look at the cemetery. Now the cemetery not was scene of fighting itself, it was a scene of Gemini placements it was a situation with fighting actually took place as you. So rightly say the serenity the calm and the piece that exists today is truly moving and I go the every day in the summer, and I never cease to be moved by visiting this amazing situation. Michael, you're just reminding people that it's a powerful pilgrimage to regard, their and remember. The heroics of that day, aren't you? Oh, is, you know, you, you see saving private Ryan and Ken burns series. And you hear from the people who are actually there, and I just can't imagine the in a nineteen year old kid and guns firing on you. I just I just can't imagine what that would be like you see the viewpoint that the Germans had on his incoming ships and it really is, you know, moving experience. It's almost ashamed for an American, I think to miss that, when they go to faults. Absolutely. All right. Michael had a good time. Thanks for your call. All right. Thank you. Landy lending all around me, as I speak. They've come in from the sea, down red white and blue parachutes suffering down just about the best thing that we've seen for a Goodman. With the seventy fifth anniversary of the d day. That'll we're glad to present you an interview we first aired on travel with Rick steves ten years ago with military historian, Ellwood onsite bold Ellwood has been providing custom tours of DJ sites for many years from his home base in Normandy. He includes information about the area and his team of guides at d day battle tours dot com. Ellwood also hosted TV specials about d day called the American road victory and the Americans on day, which you might find scheduled again on your local public TV station. When I first started traveling, there were veterans from World War, One going to done. Yes, no longer happens ten things, and I think that there's probably less interest in verdone, nothing. There was thirty years ago. A very interesting statement and I've very often question, many of mine, I can customers as to that knowledge about the American Volmer in we'll we'll want it and it's quite astounding of I would say about ninety nine percent of them have no idea that even participate. It'd in walnut tool, which is such a pity when I think back that great general pushing off to his time as of I can only spent the rest of his life, trying to make sure that the American nation. Never forgot the American, sacrificing Mobil one. And I'm afraid that all of his work seems to have been virtually in vain, and you're hopeful about World War Two I'm hopeful about what will to very much. So because let's face it, I will will was never recorded in film, in any way, the same way that cinema. Boy, it's been recorded to the French. Remember our roic in World War Two yes, they do. There's no question about the French people, especially in the nominee area ever mindful of the American sacrifice in that area. And they are, I would say without any Christian, but they always very grateful about the American sacrifice and the allied sacrifice in, in general Masci. I was just at a beautiful mum and pup Chateau in burgundy, and the aristocratic family lives, there, they pulled out their forty-eight star American flag that they flew over there. Chateau. Oh on d day when they realized the allies coming to them. Yes, it was very touching thing yesterday. And I just believe from the bottom of art that the French always will be thankful for and remember what we did with the British and the Canadians and our allies. We mustn't figure the Canadians of coal subsidy. We have Mike on the line from Georgia, any comments for Ellwood. It's just a very boring thing. I've been to Europe a couple of times and visited the cemetery and Luxembourg city, and it's just an awesome sight, just knowing the amount of sacrifice the young men so long ago, gave I haven't been to the d day area yet. Is there any recommendations that you might have if I had to day length of time to take most advantage of it, in that particular area, where would somebody sleep as a home base? What would they do if they had two days to see the best of the Normandy sites? Right. If you have two days, see the best that only sites, I would recommend that you stay in the very attractive, small town of by youth. That is a good central base from which to take, you excursions if you will by his roughly halfway down between the right in the left-hand flank, say, if you talk about the right hand flank the right Hon, thanks invasion with Sutton lease and the left hand. Flank is a place go, we stream which is way down to the British things. And by us roughly halfway between those two point. So you would strike out on day one into the American end and then strike out on day two and then do the British invasion beaches and that would be a place to base himself in by is a beautiful town, which has a another invasion history. It's got the famous bay. Oh, tapestry in days, because that was from where the Normans invaded England in one day we all know from the middle ages. Yes today. Yes. Hey, mike. Thanks for your call. We have David on the line in Pennsylvania. Doing. Good. Do you have a comment or question for Ellwood? I have had the opportunity to visit a number of different places throughout Europe. And I always make it a point to try to see many of the World War Two. Historical sites have been to France and two point the hawk in Omaha beach, and the day site. What I was really interested in finding out was with regard to the United Kingdom. Whether there are any of the airbases where the v seventeen flew from I had family members that were in a v seventeen crew and was wondering if there were any spots, still around of those airbases where you could see those, that's very interesting question. Now, you'll have to understand that I'm not an expert on US is in the UK that all remains of US vase, isn't it? That's remember that in Norfolk Suffolk that was literally hundreds of them, hundreds and hundreds of it would be a question in you'll case of finding out, which squadron, you'll relative with. And that would be. To find out the name of the joint all the name of the village, which the Adra would have been nipped and from that point, of course, then it's simply a question of getting out on the ground and going and having a look around. Now, I do know that many of the old flight control towels all of these older jams on listed property and all being restored in some instances by the local council thirties. So that for you. You do have a good chance of preps finding out the remains of the German, which from which over the b seventeen. Outstanding. Any websites or anything where that type of information could be researched you'll ever suggest would be the imperial wool museum at Duxford now ducts, but it self, of course, was a will will to f and that is the imperial will museums F oil base, if you will from, which, actually it'd be seventeen itself does fly regularly during the some of this hundreds of that cough. And that would be the place. I was suggest you go. First of all, to start your research, now there's an imperial museum actually, in London. Also, that is the best way museums in Europe date. It's awesome. Don't miss that. It's on the south Bank of the Thames. I believe, yes, also, Dover has a great World War, Two museum is the pricing legal there to see the Roman lighthouse and castle on, you realize wonderful that Britain museum in Eden camp outside of York is a prize winning museum in award winning Newseum a former prison be. I think what we got Herman prisoners, talks about the British four effort, lotta great sites in England to work into your itinerary. When you're going back there to learn about World War Two his, I'm speaking with Elwood Sibol ten. He's an Englishman, who has now moved to Normandy to follow his passion, which is help visitors understand, and appreciate the sites and the memories in the lessons from the battle of Normandy. We have dam in the phone from Bellingham, Washington. Hi, dan. Thanks for your call. Break, teen college, and we got take about two and a half months year back around full of like fun excitement. But we really want to go to Auschwitz and we're kinda wondering how to prepare for that. Is there a guided tour or should we just kind of walk around ourselves? I can probably handle Auschwitz. Then we'll talk about how do you handle this heavy duty stuff? But Auschwitz I think of all the concentration camp experiences is the most powerful. And when you go, there are audio guides there's a movie to watch, and which is actually two camps. There's original camping, and there's a huge camp nearby but can out anyone make sure you see both of those as I trip from krecko, the broader issue Ellwood. I'd like you to talk about for Dan, is you're going to Europe. It's just fun in the sun and it's late and happy. And all of a sudden you're going to go to corridor circle on town that was murdered and burned left in rebel, because of a Nazis, getting even with the local people for killing one of their officers or. You're going to Normandy beach, landing sites, you're going to a concentration camp. This how do people handle that? What advice do you have for that? The advice I have people is that you read about the events that transpired in a place, which, you know, in advance is going to be emotionally difficult for you to get to grips with. And that is the best preparation. I can say and the other thing is that always say to people that take guide if you can on my first and only visit to us fits was, I went with a guide, and that enable me to keep a hold on my motions because I switch is almost impossible to talk about the feeling which you have when you sit such on this must terrible of locations and I was afraid, I was literally afraid very prohibitive about how I would react to the situation, and this was very helpful and kept me kept me, going kept justly, me along kept things moving along. So I didn't have time to the come overruled. I've found a local guide. And I spent a whole day dies fits and, and if. I didn't think the would fascinating can be applied hit but it, it led me through the day, and I came out with a much greater understanding of switz- as a place and what it represented in what happened there. But I found if I remember right to have found a local God in Krakow, and we drove in this, God's call. And it was an extremely informative day. And that's what I would suggest you go to how that is member of rightaid Jewish center, then they will provide you with, with a top right guide who really know what that talking about new getting's, actually what happened and you'll come away a. Much rich for that experience. May I say thank you very much for your call. Ben so L would I like that idea that you would be with a person who does this routinely to keep you grounded and so on and not get too heavy about it? On the other hand, it's a it's a life changing experience to see these inspirational sites. And I celebrate the opportunity to actually come away from my trip with an understanding of, of some of the tragedies in our recent history. And I also promise myself to remember my feelings, and my emotions and go home and think of myself as more tuned in and appreciative, citizen of the planet that can really work hard to help us nerve from history and not repeat it that is the most important message of the day. I think that's remember where we've come from, and that will zeal saying goes give us an understanding of where we're going to exactly it's the best and most powerful souvenir of any visit to Normandy. I agree. I've been speaking with Elwood von cyberworld. Thank you so much for being with us. Thank you very much for eight seven seven three three three seven four two five. Is our number as next, we get tips for best, enjoying the Portuguese capital of Lisbon. You can send us an Email at radio at Rick steves dot com. With a revitalized waterfront and renovated historic districts, Lisbon promises to be one of Europe's most appealing destinations this year. It's a city of around a half a million, where the Tejo river meets the Atlantic and comes packed with plenty of old world. Charm, interesting neighborhoods to explore we're joined now by guides Christina Duarte and cloudy accustomed to help you plan a trip to their beautiful city, Christina Klaudia. Welcome. India. Right. He Christina and cloudy. I noticed that. Lisbon is there's a lot of investment in the city. The waterfront is more people friendly than ever used to be an industrial wasteland. The wonderful avenue Libertad is like the shuns Elysee. It's got trees. It's got outdoor cafes. It's got new couples I love what's going on in Lisbon. What is your observation Klaudia about how Lisbon is transforming before our very eyes? I think it's very important. Well, see that we, the Eisele a local that still leaves ING the SOLAS tight. Maybe they say this is too much, and this, and that Lisbon it was important to do works not for the tortoise but for the locals itself. Yeah. So yes, they are doing lots of beautiful renovation the facades. We the tiles, the as lasers as we say the beautiful colored tile. Yes, yes, they still even when they are doing new buildings, they keep the tiles. As laser. All right. And then they are doing lots of innovation in old areas like Alfa mood media. Now seen motor you that? So they are taking actions. This is an interesting thing as Lisbon becomes more fluent and takes care of its neighborhood's gentrification. We also have the risk of becoming like the Ramblas in Barcelona where you lose all of your personality, and it becomes one big tourist shot. Christina would is Lisbon concerned about in that regard has been is right now more lively, than ever, because those areas that were residential areas, but they were pretty dark in the evening, and there was not much people around, because, you know, you leaving the place you don't go to the restaurants. I mean, you don't go to the restaurants every day home you eat at home. So we these new population coming more tourists. So more Kefalas open more restaurants. So it's good. And the cities are more lively in the evening, you'll have people in the streets until very late. Midnight, one o'clock in the morning that in the past you, not see you were kind of scared of getting our. Yes. Right now, he's fool of people on the streets in the evening. That is the good part. I fell in. Love with Lisbon in the autumn. That was the old salty sailors quarter but to be honest, now it's become less lively, and it feels like it's lost something. But there's a new neighborhood, which is kind of the new alpha can you describe moreover, yeah, exactly the other side. I'll find easing the heel of the castle between the castle and the river exactly. Overlooking the river so it means that it was through all the centuries, always the noble part of the city because it was the harbor. And it was where everything happened now mode. He we are exactly on the back of that hill. So on the north face literally where the Moore's live, exactly would that be the workers or the Lord. Outcasts emigrants. Yes, on exactly. That would be the cheaper neighborhood. Exactly long ago long time ago. Exactly because it was not that Hendi for the graver and debate, and the merchandise trade. Today. It's just bursting with little restaurant little restaurants, because when it was no longer possible to leave India, Fhimah, so gentrification started, and they had to move to somewhere and they still wanted to stay in town. So they went to the less expensive part of the city. So to the Beck of the hill to the Becca the hill. Claudia the more Moriya is this characteristic long, forgotten now, recognized colorful neighborhood. It's no coincidence. That, that's where Fahd came from. Is that correct? Yes. The father music, while I guess, by the name of it fought tumor. So it's a letting were that means the destiny, right destiny destiny. So yes, it starting those little rates those who stay was famous wasn't the most famous. Was was Molly who three good? She by the nineteen nineteen nine but nowadays, we have other very famous singers, such as Marija she's pretty famous, an a mortar. She's streets of moral RIA last year. And there was pictures on the walls of the great photo pictures on the walls of the population that those who leave their or saying the way Lisbon is doing this. This is travel with Rick steves. We're talking about Lisbon with our tour guide friends Audi pasta, and Christina Duarte are phone number's eight seven seven three three, three seven four to five and Heidi's calling in from San Diego. And Portugal couple years as a child and have had the opportunity to return many times since both recently in twenty sixteen with my in laws and my four children and my husband and they loved it. They had been to Italy. They had been to Germany. Many parts in Portugal was just wonderful. In fact, we came home. They told their relatives about it, and relatives who had usually visited Francis, also visit Portugal. What was it about it? That was so lively to them it's, it's smaller. It's a different culture. You expect it to be Europe. So you kind of thanks to typical France or what, you know middle but it's, it's different it's its own countries, and I've seen a lot of changes over the years, I visited as well which your guys alluded to when you were in Lisbon, stumble onto any good pastries. Oh my talk about pastry. One other thing. I appreciate about Portugal, and that I love probably because I if there is a child as well, but their food, and their pastries are very different people think croissants, or Strudel's that's not what they do imports. Ago, they do amazing things with eggs and just all different kinds of pastries. And that was one of the joys of taking my family that hadn't been there, there it was them to these foods. Remember? But still, the not the yet still. The not to that's the generic term for if you live anywhere in Portugal, but I sense, a little bit of Lisbon pride here Klaudia. Why did you say still blame because everyone knows the Bush still does a pace through rights might puff pastry? But still, I was the first but still the Natta. Okay, Bellamy Eze in Lisbon near the beautiful monastery there, and it was the monks that start doing the recipe for the cakes Bill. B. L E M. Correct. And there's a famous place there. They houses of these as a secret recipe. But I find all over Lisbon. There are little neighborhood bakeries that crank out this. Contest contests every year for the best of the year when gets famous, and they say they have the best pastry, but I think it's the sort of interesting dynamic where it's the best pastry because they make a lot of them they sell them hot out of the oven. Yes. And a few forget the best pastry three hours later. It's not the best you want it still hot event. And if you see a long line of local people waiting for their little fuel basical shops in downtown area, where do you find the same very good push the case. And that also, you know, worm, and they are just wonderful. Does the Belay is often a line going out s- people assume that they wanna get there? Still the Belay they go thin in the line. Well, you can go in and sit down and there will be a server that conserve your still the Belay right there. You don't eat to wait in that big long line. It's beautiful inside. That's. That's. Yes. A loco. To, you know to do what you all local. Don't tell them the secrets. Sit down. You'll be served as sort of counter intuitive, you sit down you'd be served faster than the people. Wait in lines. Oh, sugar in the cinnamon. Oh, it's so good. Heidi, you're making me. Wanna play back to Lisbon. Thanks for your call. Guides to Lisbon Christina, Duarte and cloudy accustomed as they help us get ready to enjoy their city, our number at travel with Rick steves, eight seven seven three three, three seven four to five Rachel's calling from San Jose, Rachel. Do you have a trip coming up to Lisbon do so? I will be traveling with teenagers a thirteen year old almost sixteen year old and we're gonna be spending about a month in Spain. And I have a trip to Lisbon plan for two nights. And I know that they're just going to be a little bit tired of seeing the girls in the him. So I'm I'm looking for something. That would be great for teenagers to do then, teenagers in Lisbon, first of all, I have to go to bed for Portugal, thirty days in Spain. Today's in Lisbon got revisit fair. Okay. But I'll leave that to you. Now. Let's see, you're, you're a mom with two kids, two teenagers in Lisbon Christina. All right. I like the nation spots cold buckle business owners. When we had the expo nineteen ninety. Eight he a brand new district of the city, you can visit the out or Canarian best aquarium known as a beautiful at query him. I mean, and even if they say, oh, aquarium used for children. Don't, don't you go because it's beautiful. He's magic and all that park is also magic, you can rent by those icicles and then going along the river, and you'll have some of course shopping malls into, you know, teenagers, they also like to look great shopping mall. It's, it's, it's a wonderful architecture, these true, and you know. And, you know, architect or something I just walked in there Spainish or get that. I'm talking as a mother of a fifteen year old and a twenty year old. And I know that it's not for the shopping, but they like to see what the other kids using these invoked. Get off the pain. And by the way, Rachel, this is part of the nations, and it is a big train station there metro station called orient for the orient the orient metro station, and then is it Calatrava? That's designing this hub, this very beautiful. Looks like palm trees. Or even though it is Spanish, it's very beautiful. Of course. Another thing in downtown area that they like to do is that you have now this kind of scooters that they like or they have towards actually, they are son, doors, little tuk-tuks. Yes. Or they ask them towards also with segues and the kids like to do it. But because the city's very, it's lots of Cobo stones, I wold rather visor to do the way to know the segue segue in bylane district because flat and smooth, not the thing that they will probably enjoy it is good weather. He's taking the train from Lisbon to cuss guys. So see ASC s is thirty five minutes along the river, NGO Shen. You stop in skies for the beach. And he's just lovely in just a nice break from all those fedral that you saying that you are going to see now you do have Lisbon overrun, though, by these, if you've been traveling in India, that little Texas there are three wheel Tex. Sees with a with a canopy over them. And they're kind of a noisy problem in Lisbon. But if I was a mom or a dead with two kids, I would consider hiring one of these tuk-tuks, they're independent business people, and they pretend like tour guides and you arrange for a price and if it's three people quite easy to. They actually up to six right now. They are mostly and then you have a character who's your driver? And you have this fun, little unforgettable experience on a three wheel motorcycle, and you go through town, and it's a lot of fun. And then if I can add, I think it's so, so fun to use one of the funicular cable cars. They will enjoy. It's all the time of San Francisco but speaks Portuguese and it's much. Have fun Rachel. Thanks for your call. Thank you so much. Festa and Christina Duarte are guides. This year's highlights in Lisbon Portugal on travel with Rick steves, our Email address is radio at Rick steves dot com. Christopher from Long Island New York has a question in an Email. He said to us Kristof rights. I'm taking my husband to Portugal for his fiftieth birthday. What are some of the tourist spots that embody Lisbon that we shouldn't miss, and it needs to be LGBT friendly? So that's an interesting issue. We've got a gay couple here. They're going to Lisbon. I know there are certain places in Spain that are very, very popular and famous as Gabe resorts in Lisbon is a gay couple comfortable in the street. Yes, actually, there is not a specific place at I say, well, go to these place. I recommend this place with the other because actually lease it's gay friendly. We don't put it's not even issue. Is like every restaurant will be good. Every hotel will be good and any, any bar, beautiful bar, overlooking romantic, overlooking places that I can give you a tip for sore. Straight. And where would you go for a nice romantic dinner, nice romantic dinner? I like by awhile, tone and invite. Geraldo, there is the independent that has a rooftop, that is beautiful, and you can have DNA over there and having a beautiful view over over the castle. There is also another called the roof, which is in overlooking Maria and overlooking the square and also rooftops because as we have LeBron is all done all the hills. Yeah. So the views are amazing full Abbar, if you would just go for cocktail in the end of the evening or the sunset, that is the most beautiful sunset time of the light of lease when he's the sunset, there is a hotel now called memo of Fhimah and go to the bar over there, because it's over looking the river, you think that you, you are out of the world, because it's very heated not everybody knows well now everybody will know it. Not necessarily romantic, but very beautiful dinner is I just it was my favorite discovery last year when I was in Lisbon is taking the ferry across from Lisbon to the fishing community directly across, and there's a right next to the ferry. Doctors a beautiful fish restaurant. What is the name of that town? Yes, because he'll Cossiga and they have lots of legal yet is restaurants of just get off the ferry you, turn right. And there it is. And it's got a view of the harbor of Lisbon and its fish, and it's still hungry locals. You know, there is another part of the c too, that usually, we don't mention, but I think is in my opinion. It's really nice. It's called L contra between the center in Belem hell come. L L E secretary as saying, elephant, former industrial area that's become trendy with. Have the dogs also nice restaurants little restaurants. Good fish. Also. You have view for word for ducks cast Doke the oath. He ASO VS for the dough cash, that would be this industrial. That's trendy. Now, there's so much to think about if we're going to Lisbon Gaels calling in from Albany, Oregon. Gale, thanks for your call. Yes. Got a little bit different question. We're going to be staying for two weeks in Lisbon visiting family, but not staying with them and not having a car, and where would you suggest in, what's the state of little bit longer term rentals in in Airbnb is so popular these days? And if you're staying for a while, you'll save a lot of money by not staying in a hotel and staying Airbnb recommend that. Yeah. And then you're in a little community feel like you're settling in. I don't bother with an Airbnb for one or two nights. Because I just like the hotel service. But if you're staying for couple of weeks, you wanna go shopping, and stock your pantry and feel like you live there. And you could choose a good neighborhood with Airbnb. I like Seattle. Assoc-. H. I ADA. She oh area. I like it because it's very, very walking friendly to everywhere where you want to go, and from that she Addo everything around by route to because and Katina but you have a huge choice of apartments, very nice apartments in debt. The area. All right. Gale have fun weeks in Lisbon. That's sounds great. This is traveled tricks, teach we're talking Lisbon with two guides Christina door team and cloudy, accustom. So let's just finish. Our discussion by reminding our travelers that if they want to go during festival time, there's a lot of color in food and passion. What is the best season for festivals in the spin definitely June everything happens in June? We call it all the popular saints. The patron saints celebrates its patriot saying that he sent Anthony. So the twelve to thirteen Saint John in Porto, the twenty third to the twenty four and then in Sintra in many other cities, the twenty eight to the twenty nine so the Twenty-nine off Julia, but he's also the month of Portugal, because we celebrate the day of which for, which is the ten and the whole CD of lease has the CDs celebrations. So there is color all over. Concerts all over. Also in pharma, they do the cash alpha that is just for fato. You buy a ticket for two or three days, and in different venues, you just jump from one venue to another. You can go to the, the tourist information site learn about that. And there's probably also a lot of travelers that didn't make reservations for hotels wondering around in the streets looking for a hotel. So it's a crowded time, I think, in joint, it's really fun. Because I really recommend you. It's my favorite time in Lisbon. While also has a local, it's really fun of you have some green. You have beer have sardines, have, you have lots of music. Yes. Also dance with the with the local so in Lisbon. Okay. Christina door tape cloudy, accussed. Thank you so much for helping us put our dreams into action here when it comes to visiting your beautiful.

Shane restaurants love moving into downstate, Illinois steak and shake was that rare unicorn the chain restaurant that downstate sin out to the world, but eighty five years after its founding in normal steak and shake. And I kinda brand is in trouble. Brian Denham has more on that. Our story begins with Gregg snodgrass, who started staking shake as a bus boy, in nineteen seventy nine Bloomington normal. It's career grew is the company did, and other local staff would travel the country to help open new locations and trained staff on the steak and shake culture quality service and cleanliness fifteen minutes before ship started in uniform inspections, and the whole nine yards was really something that we all took pride in. It was fun. But by two thousand and eight bit wasn't fun anymore. Snodgrass was a district manager, then overseeing nine locations between Bloomington and Paducah. Kentucky snodgrass says the new owner big lorry holdings was cutting wages and Benny. If it's part of a recession era discounting survival plan, so snodgrass left today. Those changes have brought steak and shake to the brink sales of sunk dozens of locations of closed employee lawsuits of piled up. And some are speculating that a major contraction or worse is near heartbreaking quite, obviously dedicated over thirty years of my career, to help build that company and help build relationships. And when you walk into the restaurants and services that good the cleanliness isn't there. The quality of the food is still there. The other things that really isn't sticking to me steak and shake is one of Bloomington. Normal most famous exports right up there with state farm, and beer nuts. Gus and Edith belt open the first location at main street in Virginia avenue normal in nineteen thirty four their family sold the company in nineteen sixty nine and it's changed hands many times since then today steak and shake has five hundred eighty locations in his based in Indianapolis and owned by Texas based big Lori. Holdings? They'll camp into McLean county museum of history says another locally grown company that followed a similar path was Eureka Williams which became Electrolux and then moved away blue into normal given kind of its vibrancy throughout its history has produced corporations brand names that are known throughout the country. Sometimes in some cases of the world, and some of those still have local ties and some do not there are a few remnants of the steak and shake legacy that have survived here chain still has four restaurants in town. You originally, one on main street, though, is now a monocle another location is now Keller's iron Skillet Kemp says gusts and Edith belts, built steak and chips brand on the steak burger Gus Val was known to make quite a show of that. He would actually wheel in a barrel, and some of the early stores full of sir lines are t bones, and then that would be ground, right? On-site so customers could see what was going into their steak. Burgers, cleanliness was also a selling point. Their slogan was incite it must be. Right. The idea was if you can see the food being made. So the grill cooks were out there in the open through glass, windows and originally, the meat was ground, on site. That was an indication that things around the out there. That was a long time ago today. The company is owned by Sardar big Laurie young investor who emigrated to the US from around he took over steak and shake in two thousand eight amid the great recession. He discounted relentlessly famously offering meals under four dollars, and it worked sales soared. He seemingly could do wrong. That's Greg Andrews, who's covered the company extensively as editor of the Indianapolis business journal. And worked in work, and that about two thousand sixteen it stopped working and the company has continued to really slide since then critics say the customer experience slipped. And so, did the service all the discounting comes at a cost steak and shake also faced a new challenge from growing fast, casual chains like Chipotle, Panara? Jason's deli younger consumers willing to pay more in the race to the bottom for value was ending. That's according to Dani Klein, who covers steak and shake for the QSR food trade magazine either plan on one side of convenience or you're, you know, going kind of higher end with some of these upscale fast castles, or or sit down scenes, or find dining people. They're taking share like that, so steak and six case, they're sort of now at a point where the not really, you know, the not really offering either of those owner Sardar. Big Lori is a mysterious figure who does not do media interviews. He didn't respond to requests for comment from GM. Lt. His only public comments typically come in his annual shareholder letters in his two thousand nineteen letter big Laurie conceded that they, quote, a ruinously stayed with a quick, -ment kitchen, design, that was ill suited for volume production and that the effect was high cost labor intensive slow service. He says they failed customers by not being fast and friendly. They paid the price for that stay and shakes revenue last year declined three and a half percent. What big lorry himself called a significant disappointment during the first quarter twenty nineteen same store sales fell almost eight percent, ten straight quarterly decline, even as other similar restaurants. Saw growth. David hankins is with Technomic research and consulting firm for the restaurant industry. I mean they're playing smack dab in a very competitive sets from big national players. Right. You know, that have huge huge reach and being marketing dollars, and, you know, all the way down to small local or regional chains or even, you know, independent burger places Hank. Says steak and shake isn't doing much to differentiate itself, not that it's, you know, the death knell for the chain. But it's, it's certainly a challenge for them to grow out of that without doing something different something different is an ambitious strategy that big lorry laid out earlier this year. He wants to franchise off all four hundred company owned restaurants franchisees will only have to put up about ten thousand dollars. It's a bargain in the industry, and they'll pay fifteen percent of sales, and fifty percent of profits back to steak and shake in franchisees can only own one restaurant that's similar to the Chick-fil-A model geared toward hands on franchise ownership experts. Tell g LT that retroactively turning restaurant chain into an all franchise model bit unusual and to prepare for it steak and shake his temporarily closed dozens of stores that will theoretically be franchised, including some in Peoria. But when a restaurant temporarily closes restaurant journalists Danny Klein says they tend not to reopen haven't seen anybody offer. Other franchise. Is for ten thousand dollars in the time that I've been here in the whole and everything they're doing right now is pretty uncommon. So I guess we don't really know how it's gonna turn out also faces a big challenge in court nearly fifteen hundred steak and shake managers across the country have sued the company claiming that were improperly classified as salary employee's in not compensated for the overtime. They worked around two hundred eighty managers from the Saint Louis area. We're just awarded seven and a half million dollars in the first of two lawsuits. The second pending lawsuit has just under twelve hundred plaintiffs including around four hundred from Illinois, that's according to their attorney, Brendan Donnellan of Kansas City, Missouri Donald says these managers were making only thirty two thousand forty thousand dollars a year, and we're doing much of the same work as lower level, hourly employees was just plug in the whole each and every shift. And I think it's pretty easy to figure out that if you're not having to pay the hourly people overtime to do all this work or to have extra hourly people there. And you're paying one person, just to set dollar amount to work, seventy hours a week. It's, it's, it's a big cost, cutting and savings measure for a company cases without merit and intends to defend these cases vigorously over Donald says the company is set for settlement talks with plaintiffs from both cases in early June. So does this all add up to the end for steak and shake? Gregg Andrews, who covers the company from Indianapolis says stay can shake has about one hundred eighty four million dollars in debt that it's supposed to pay off in March of twenty twenty one. At the moment. So it really doesn't have the ability to pay that off. If it starts to turn it around then lenders would probably give it a lot more breathing room. But if it's in a tailspin, which is what it really is in today that, that put force taking check into bankruptcy significant retraction, fewer locations. Maybe more likely Dani Klein says it's not uncommon today to see restaurant chains retract pretty dramatically Applebee's is one recent example of this type of scale, and you know, guest affinity and history. And the fact that they were on a really good run there for, you know, pretty good period of time, I would be surprised to see them go bankrupt, but I would also say it's definitely not nothing ever impossible possible in this industry restaurants or such a such a fluctuating kind of business. Brennan Donlan the attorney who represents the managers says it's hard to speculate about the company's financial health because steak and shake is just one part of the. The glory holdings portfolio. The glory also owns maxim magazine, and the western Susan restaurant chain among other investments to look at that. And then decipher exactly, which of that are sticking shake assets, and stay shake liabilities things along those lines. So I it's, it's always a concern in all of my cases, but it's hard for me to speculate here, whether or not, it's going to have a big impact on our on our verdict. And on our second lawsuit. Greg snodgrass, the busboy who became a district manager gave the company other chance himself he returned from two thousand ten two thousand thirteen but it wasn't enjoyable anymore. He says the family friendly atmosphere was gone. He left again. Just there's some talk that they may even just filled up and go away. Which I hope that's happened Sardar. Big Laurie says it will take three years for the refranchising plan to be completed that was Ryan denim with that reports and read more about the problems with the restaurant chain stake in shake.

If you've been outside this spring, you've probably noticed more flying insects like gnats mosquitoes in some areas. People are having to fight off swarms Nick cider is a research assistant professor of field. Crop in Tamala. She at the U of is department of crop sciences. And I had a chance to talk with them. And I assume that some of the reason we're seeing so many of these bugs right now is because of the wet spring. Yeah. That, that, right. And there's a, there's a variety of different insects, especially different types of wise, of course, mosquitoes are a are a type of fly, that's the one that we're most worried about. That's the one where when we have a lot of standing, and especially stagnant water out there from some of these heavy rains, and from some of these flooding events. That's lots of great breeding sites for mosquitoes. There's also a variety of other insects that aren't necessarily biting insects, some midges, and different other types of small flies. Is that can do the same thing? They'll breed in developing that standing water, they won't necessarily by people, but they can't be more of a nuisance. But the, the primary one we're going to be worried about is mosquitoes in the standing water. And then in areas where there's more running water more flowing water like when the rivers are high, and that kind of thing you can't see an increase in buffalo NATs, which are different type of fighting fly. I feel like I've seen a lot of the buffalo nets in here in central Illinois. A few years back. We seem to also have quite a few of those and then after a couple of weeks that subsided. Do you expect the same thing to happen? Here, does it depend on the weather. It does depend on the weather, but it is seasonal also. They do tend to subside. Once the real heat of the summer comes on big issue with puff, low nance's that regular insect. Repellents aren't quite as affected against them. They're also quite painful. But then, of course, for from -squitoes the best thing you can do for yourself is to get a good insect, repellent, use that when you go outside, just to avoid being bitten, the other thing you can do for mosquitoes is to remove sources and standing water, especially in your home tire swings or one that gets talked about a lot, you know, bird baths or another one lot of times though those sources of standing water that are out there just need to be just need to be refreshed every once in a while you have to for that water out if it's something like a bird bat, where you want water in it just refreshed that water. So that insects aren't Bella thing, particularly in -squitoes on developing in well, you said the insect repellent, if you go to the store, there's all sorts of claims made by different ones. Is there something that people should look for ingredient wise at least that is, is the best for folks to use with mosquitoes there, several that are affected the one that I've had the most luck? With our repellents that contain D D ET for buffalo dance. I, I don't know that I'm as quick to evaluate them. I know there are some effective products on the market for that insect. When, when I hear people talk about a lot of mosquitoes and concerns over that, of course, part of that is not just the nuisance of having them around and being bitten by them. But also the concerns about disease is that something that you're watching this time of the year with, you know, with that many around are we concerned, we're going to see a big year for these types of diseases that are carried by mosquitoes? That's always a risk. And we're we're left in the mid west, but we don't have a tremendous number of mosquito borne illnesses in humans, we do have several types of theft lightest, including West Nile virus is probably the most well known of those, and I don't know if it's the most common that, that certainly the most well known. So certainly good reason to protect yourself from the -squitoes also important to not forget about. Your pet heartworms for instance are spread by mosquito bites in, in dog. So it's a good idea to take your animals to the vet. Make sure their medications up to date on that. You're attacking Mems. Well can nets also carry you disease. And can they be a health problem as well in terms of spreading disease in Illinois? It's really mosquitoes, and then picks which aren't aren't an insect. But are, you know in order to pod and Cam spread lime disease and some other things? That's another one. You wanna bet yourself against anytime. You're out in tall grass, but that's not one that's going to be necessarily favored by all this water. But mosquitoes, the primary threat when we're talking about lies when we're talking about insects that are favored by a lot of water like, what we have in the state right now, Nick cider is a research, assistant professor at the U of is department of crop sciences. Some good advice. Protect yourself and your animals. If you're spending time out. Outside cider says mosquitoes might be more prevalent in central and southern Illinois right now. But soon there will be plenty in northern Illinois as well. We'll have more of statewide coming up. We'll look at what state lawmakers did and didn't do in their spring legislative session. That's on the way. Indeed knows finding the right. Hire takes time away from your business. Hiring a qualified data engineer felt like a second job, more job seekers use indeed than any other sites.

Introducing the all new telluride Kia give it everything expected spring, twenty nineteen in limited. Quantities back on statewide. I'm shawn. Crawford ahead. We'll find out about a major expansion of gambling in Illinois and will break them with the legislation will do later, the final classes for knowing high school. We'll take a Bizet there. It's all coming up. After years of struggling to enact a historic overhaul at the state school funding structure. It would only lawmakers this session focused on other major initiatives like abortion, cannabis casinos, and a new income tax system. But public schools are facing another growing problem that lawmakers have not quite figured out how to fix our education. Reporter, dusty Rhodes explains radio, we try not to spend a lot of numbers because those tend to go in one ear and out the other. So let's just say when the general assembly adjourned, if you days ago, public schools were set to receive eight point eight billion dollars virtually every penny. They requested, but there are some problems money, alone, can't solve the biggest discussion over the capitol for k twelve education really focused around the teacher shortage. That's Amanda, Elliott director of legislative affairs for the state board of education. This is something that has been discussed for the last several years. And yet, the shortage already severe is getting. Worse Cording to a recent survey. More than eighty five percent of school. Superintendents say they have trouble hiring teachers last year the legislature passed a law that allowed for reciprocity. So now anyone who holds a teacher license in another state automatically qualifies for credential here that chain brought Illinois at twenty percent bump in applications this year? The conversation really focused around testing, we had two bills passed that eliminate the basic skills test. That's a test introduced in the nineteen eighties. It's been revamped three times making increasingly difficult, seventy five percent of potential teachers flunked the test, which means they aren't, even allowed to take teacher prep courses lawmakers also considered eliminating the two other big tests required for a teaching license. There are different interruptions of bills, that were filed that eliminated content tests, and the teacher performance us meant altogether. But eventually, we landed on just eliminating the basic skills. Test and studying content tests cow Thompson is assistant regional superintendent of seven county area in eastern, Illinois, and he has so many teacher vacancies. He traveled to Springfield to testify against what he regards as excessive teacher testing twice. He says killing that basic skills. Test just isn't enough for all the effort that was put in throughout this spring session. I just don't feel like we came out with enough solutions, or as great of an impact as we could have and should have. Colleges that run teacher preparation programs their officials showed up in mass to testify against the Bill Thompson supported, which would have eliminated all three tests. Room and then ten or twelve different university professors or deans or whatever went up instead around that table for you were in the room and that was the group that, you know, was advocating essentially for status quo Elliott, whose job is essentially to act as the embassador in charge of negotiations between lawmakers in the state board. Admits more changes are needed eliminating the basic skills test, I think will help but it is only one small component. We really need to have additional conversations about other barriers to the teaching field. I think another Bill that passed that will help the teachers to the minimum teachers salary Bill making sure that teachers are paid what they deserve. I think is important and will hopefully help encourage more people to come to the field. Other things that need to be looked at include pensions, working conditions respect to the profession. Those are all really big rocks that will take time to evaluate in address in her calm. Medic tone. She points out that one, you measure requires the state board to review content area tests to see whether some need to be updated or scrapped Thomson whose job includes helping find teachers for schools. In twenty five rural districts sounds more like that student who legitimately needs, a fidget spinner. I feel like we're always creating taskforce and forming committees. It just I feel like it just takes so long and every year we do this. It's just another year of our, our lives in our effort, just not feeling position in rural areas. You know, and so, like I get I'm sure they'll do the task force. I'm sure they'll come up with solutions. I hope I guess, just baffled. They just don't think all the people that were in such opposition to all these changes. I don't think they realize how bad it is. You can read about other education plans considered by lawmakers, this session can check out dusty. Full reports. It's available. There's Lincoln or website, statewide, show dot com. State lawmakers also passed a major gambling expansion in Illinois. And daisy contrasts followed that action. She joins me out, Phyllis, all in on what to place, one of the big parts of this gambling expansion. Daisy had to do with sports, wagering, you'll be able to do that in Illinois soon. What do we know about that right now? So horse racing tracks casinos in certain sporting venues, will get the opportunity to purchase a license to offer sports, wagering these will be for the brick and mortar licenses. And if those casinos, racetracks partner up with a vendor for online betting than both the in person and mobile bedding can't take place, as soon as the Illinois gaming board. Accepts the applications in vets them. Now what if you don't have a casino? And if you wanted to offer only online betting, well, you'd have to wait several months before you can apply for one of the three of able online licenses and from what I'm told this will be a very competitive selection process, because the gaining board has to make sure the upper -tunities given to businesses owned by minorities. Women veterans and people with disabilities. But there are the big companies like fan duel and draft kings who might want to get in on the action too so more, because they if they partner up with the casino right now, for example, to offer all, wagering, they have to operate on their the casino brand name. So they wanna get their name out there. So they're going to have to wait for that. We've seen gambling expanded Illinois going back. Well going back to the state lottery. And then, of course later came riverboat gambling. It's moved on to having gambling right in your own neighborhood with some of these video machines that are in bars and restaurants. But this was a big step sports betting. Yeah, it really was because a year ago, the USO premium court allowed it to be regulated outside of Nevada. So states jumped in on the opportunity and several states have already done that. I mean, also good to mention gambling on sport on college sports will not be allowed on their this, this Bill and professional sports leagues will not get a cut of the money. Unheard a timeframe for sports betting to actually take off in Illinois to where you could actually go and make your bet. But we think it's going to be pretty soon. Right. The governor signs the legislation. The Illinois gaming board will probably start accepting applications. They will go through a vetting process, and once that happens if the casinos have the capacity to start offering it, then it should be off the ground. Pretty soon would be both football season even. So along with that six new casinos. And when we say, new casinos, is that what we're actually talking about here that they these are going to be these big operations like we've seen in other towns. I know for sure that the one in Chicago would that is one of the most notable places Rockford in southern Illinois in what's known as Walker's bluff, one in south in the south Chicago suburbs danville, in what Keegan now to see the extent of how big they will be, we don't know. I mean, they have the option not to build a casino, but Rockford in carterville labor groups lobbied, hard in Springfield this session, and the they have in many other sessions just to make sure that they could get on this list. They argued at the upper -tunities would help them. Create jobs, not just ring the construction of their projects. But also, once the casinos are established they'll be able to have people employed from the community, people might be surprised to know that Springfield does not have a casino. Always think of it as a pretty politically connected tone. But it's also included in here with a. Little special addendum for the city of Springfield for the state fairgrounds. Slot machines will be allowed at the state state, fair grounds, the, the, the mayor here, lobbied for a casino, but we Springfield and not make the list horse treks. They have for years complained about loss of, of customers, because people coming in there to bet on the horses because of casinos, they feel as though they've been in competition and not they've not been winning that competition through the years was there something in here for straps as well. I mean, not only will they get the opportunity to offer sports gambling, which old, the different gaming industries. Really wanted us a new industry to help them attract more gamblers, but the horse trucks will also get the permission permission to have lots and table games on their premises basically casino, tile games, and these will get up to twelve hundred positions from the ones that we they I mean, they don't have right now that will be enough to help boost that industry, which it does create. Jobs. There's no other people that raise the horse's feed for the horses all of that. But they think this will be enough. They were here in Springfield. A lot of them saying exactly that, that this will help create jobs, and attract more people does anything in this change video gambling. Like we see at again as bars restaurants, places like that we see a lot of it and has become quite popular in many communities, anything change because of this legislation under the plan video gambling machines, will be okay for larger truck stops the maximum bed was also increased. Maybe something that wasn't supported by the video gaming industry. Is that the Texas increased from the current thirty percent at thirty three percent in the first year and thirty percent in the second year and moving forward? So what the industry will saying that it was going to hurt these video gaming operators. Especially the smaller ones. And these you've covered this quite a bit through the session, and watched the ups and downs of this legislation all the way till it got passed. But when it comes to gambling legislation in the past, we also call it quite often. Christmas tree bills, because people start jumping on and we saw this time as well. Lot of things get thrown in it often collapses under that weight. It's almost too big. Well, it didn't collapse this time. We know why that was the case gaming expansion. Bill is attached to a forty five billion dollar capital plan for construction projects. And I think that was one of the main things here that got many lawmakers to vote in favour, so all of the revenue from this expansion will go toward that fun to specifically help with vertical construction project, so maintaining any state owned buildings like prisons in universities and anything from licensing fees to the tax increases on video gaming, for example, we'll go to that. I think that in the beginning, like you said, some lawmakers many stakeholders wanted to keep the sports gambling plan out of the bigger bigger. Plan out of fears that it would collapse. But I also think many lawmakers both Republican and democrat understood the need for this capital Bill, something that we haven't had for many years. And if the entire package was going to offer some help with that. And if some of it would also help with job creation, many were willing to vote in favour. And I think it, it took a lot of negotiation at the end. So this big package gets through the governor's indicated he's on board with it. Where does that put when it comes to other states? I've heard somebody use the freeze the Vegas of the midwest heard the same thing to over the last several days neighbors, like Iowa and Indiana already legalize sports betting in the last few weeks. I wa has nineteen casinos while Indiana has thirteen Ohio, has eleven would we would have sixteen under this expansion, Illinois also has also has also increased the gaming positions? So I think while we have a long way to go to catch up to Nevada. I think a lot is happening at one. Under this expansion, Bill and maybe that's why it seems like there's just so much going on with gambling. We'll continue to watch it as it rolls out and sports betting as well rolling out here in Illinois soon. That's daisy, contrarius.

This is an opportunity to fix the problems of Illinois and begin reestablishing the essential services that government is supposed to deliver here. We are debating a constitutional to hike taxes. When wild hop says L noise tax burden is the highest in the nation. These definitions seem overly broad, and I am certain that most doctors if their incentive is to perform an abortion would be able to find some kind of loophole here to figure that out. I am disgusted by the propaganda that is out there suggesting that any woman late in her pregnancy, or even after giving birth as I've heard from some and then decide just don't want this child and simply end its life. If we are going to do this, we must ensure that black and Brown communities that had been divested in that. Have been locked up had been castigated to the side had to be central to this policy. And that is what we had in this Bill. We can disagree Mr President on tax policy and environmental policy, but we can all get on the same page. I hope that what we don't want to do at this time and place is to do something that will make it more likely that more of our citizenry will at some point developmental illness. It's amazing what we can do around here, just a few hours of people are willing to work together, and we just started doing that.
