"Unpredictability Puts Question Marks in the Heads of Bad Guys"
"Today, 14 months later, is still using the phrase special military operation, not war. He's doing that exactly because of that speech by Biden, et cetera. Well, we'll probably won't do anything if it's just a limited incursion. This is for me is proof of ranking competence. There wouldn't be no war in Ukraine where it not for surrender of Afghanistan. And this is analogous for me to 1990 when our ambassador in Iraq told Saddam Hussein when it came up in conversation. Oh, the Kuwait problem. We deem that to be a domestic issue. A domestic issue which he took as a green light to invade another country. There is a connection is there. And Kim Il sung did the same when dean rusk. Yes. An assistant Secretary of State for East Asia to fairs said the same thing. And the next thing we know, Larry Truman is looking at a massive invasion coming across that parallel. I don't know if you get this all the time. I do, people always ask me, what would president Trump do now if he were in office? And I laugh. I talked, I say, there wouldn't be a war. For me to do anything. Absolutely. And that, that is the proper predicate. President Trump had, it was interesting watching him. And I say this with all respect. I've said this to him. You and I have spent a lifetime in one world. We were in the world that we were born in khaki diapers. And we've studied this. We've studied the people who have made the difference not only in foreign affairs, but in military affairs. He hasn't done that. He's a real estate businessman. But he instinctively knew a couple of things. One strength begets retreat on the other side. And unpredictability puts question marks in the heads of bad guys.

Pamela Smart’s latest bid for sentence reduction dismissed
"Pamela smart, who's serving life in prison for plotting with her teenage lover to have her husband killed, is denied her latest petition to have her sentence dismissed. It was 1990, smart was 22 when she got up 15 year old student at the school where she worked in New Hampshire to shoot and kill her husband. Smart denied it. Her spokesperson says this ruling by the New Hampshire Supreme Court is a continuing disappointment and that smart is rehabilitated and no danger to society. The state attorney general's office has opposed commutation for smart, saying she has never accepted full responsibility for the crimes. The killer Billy Flynn has been released. The case inspired the Nicole Kidman Joaquin Phoenix film to die for. I'm Julie Walker.

Dinesh Exposes the IRS As a Rip-Off Operation
"Recently, the GOP led House of Representatives repealed a congressional provision allocating almost $80 billion to the IRS to over ten years, hire a whole bunch of new agents and the House Republicans said, listen, you don't need the money. You're going to just use this money to badger harass and rip off the taxpayer. And I want to focus on a particular case that seems to show the IRS doing exactly that. I know about the case only because it wound its way up to the Supreme Court. And the Supreme Court basically weighed in and slapped down the IRS for imposing really a ridiculously excessive penalty on a guy for not reporting his foreign bank accounts. Now, here's what let's go into the story a little bit because the guy, his name is alexandru, bittner. He was born in communist Romania. He moved to the United States when he was a young guy. But then when the Soviet Union collapsed, he moved back to Romania from 1990 to 2011, so he lived in post Soviet in the post Soviet bloc for about 20 years. Now he was a really successful guy. He had a bunch of businesses, and he opened up a whole bunch of foreign bank accounts. Then later he moves back to the United States and he discovers that he is required as someone who has these foreign bank accounts simply the file a report. With the IRS noting that he has these bank accounts. He says I didn't even know I was supposed to do that, but he hired an attorney and the attorney said, I'll prepare the documents for you. And so he filed them. Now the IRS basically said that this guy did not file these timely reports. For 5 years, 2007 to 2011. Again, reports that you didn't know he needed to file. And so the IRS decides to fine him. Now, the correct amount to find him because apparently there were 5 years and he didn't file a report for 5 years, is $10,000 per year. So the amount that they could find. And remember, when you don't know there's a law, it doesn't excuse you from having to follow the law. You still have to do it. And so the IRS should have probably fine this guy $50,000, which was a small fraction of the total amount of money in those accounts. He could easily have paid it. But the IRS decided not to do that. They decided that for each account that he didn't file a report, it's a separate violation. And it needs to have a $10,000 fine attached not to each report, not each annual report, but to each particular account and because this guy had a whole bunch of accounts, it turns out that the IRS stuck him with a penalty, let me look for the actual number here. It was a penalty of $2.72 million.
We Pushed Semiconductors Offshore; Are We Doing the Same to Crypto?
"Want to start with what I think is a really good thread comparing the U.S.'s approach to the crypto industry to another high-tech industry that has had an interesting relationship, let's say, with American policy, and then we're going to take it from there. So this first thread comes from Sheila Warren, who's the CEO of the crypto council. She was formally at the WEF, and has a lot of really interesting perspectives. She's also the host, by the way, of coin desks money reimagine podcast. She writes, the cognitive dissonance I have around watching the U.S. slowly offshore crypto, while desperately trying to bring back semiconductor manufacturing is wild. So I bring you, semiconductors, a cautionary tale. Recently The White House announced an initiative to bring semiconductor manufacturing back to the U.S. despite desperately trying to catch up to global competitors. Semiconductor manufacturing is critical to national security. And when we let it leave the U.S. decades ago, only a few predicted just how critical it would end up being. The struggle we are seeing to bring SMF R or semiconductor manufacturing back to the U.S. is foreshadowing our digital future if crypto is pushed offshore. We could see similar fact sheets from The White House about bringing crypto back to America. How did we get here? Semiconductor chips are essentially the brains of electronic devices. Without them, electronics can't work. So when pandemic supply chain disruptions kept auto manufacturers from getting chips, new vehicles would sit incomplete because they were missing one single chip. The U.S. invented semiconductors in the 1960s and led its development for the industry's first few decades. But since 1990, the U.S. share of global chip manufacturing shrank from 37 to 12%, largely due to U.S. underinvestment and neglect. Other governments especially in East Asia, lured semiconductor firms with tax breaks, land for factories, cheap labor, and a more open system. The U.S. underinvestment in chip manufacturing was driven by a strategic misstep. In the 90s, U.S. firms decided to specialize in semiconductor design and outsource semiconductor manufacturing. Taiwan by contrast focused long-term to be an essential country for the chip industry. Fast forward to today. China has been investing heavily for decades and is positioned to outpace the U.S., but these chips are vital to a growing digital economy,

Charles Barkley Slams Kendrick Perkins for 'Racists' Comments
"Let me read this head and I'm real quick. It says Hall of Fame basketball player Charles Barkley ripped into Kendrick Perkins, suggesting that race plays a role in the NBA MVP, voting when it comes to the Denver Nuggets, the center, Nikola jokic. Jokic, jokic. You know I'm from America, jokic. And the funny thing is the criticism that racist Kendrick Perkins had made mention of was he was criticizing yo kitsch. He was criticizing Dirk Nowitzki and Steve Nash. And the funny thing is is that none of them are white Americans. them. And it's funny because white Americans sit on the board of the voting for MVP and I don't have they ever voted for a white American to be of MVP of a basketball of the NBA. I mean, I'll say from starting from 1990 because he went since 1990 to the present day, there has never been a white American that have been, I voted MVP in the NBA. None. racist Kendrick Perkins is a complete maniac and idiot in my personal opinion. And it makes black people folks look bad. I mean, we look dumb. Sitting on TV, making all that money, and we trying to claim that white people are racist, yet the white people we claim are racist, vote for black people more than white people. And they vote for white people who are not American more than white Americans. So if anything, they're excluding white Americans from the MVP voting. But I'm going to play with Charles Barkley said and if anybody out there that's listening, if you can get me in contact with Charles Barkley, I would love to sit down and smoke a cigar and interview charged Barclay because I just really appreciate his perspective even though I don't agree with everything. I appreciate people that keep it real. And Charles Barkley, I know he live here in Arizona. I saw him at the airport one year, but I wasn't able to follow up with him. However, if you know him, I want to interview him and talk to him about this whole thing. But I'm going to play the clip from Charles Barkley. I don't remember which number it is, but let's roll clip two. I think I got it. Clip two. If only 5 white guys have won MVP in the last 30 years, that makes zero sense if argument. Zero sense. Because if that was the case, we'd have a lot more white MVPs. Those and it's a little short clip of what Charles Barkley said. I know he probably said a lot. I mean, in the article that I have here, and I'm not going to say these words on a radio, but he said, he's pretty sure that the other gentleman jokic, is that how you say his name? That jokic don't give a, you know what about these idiots on television?

Kendrick Perkins Says Racial Bias Plays Role in NBA MVP Voting
"Kendrick Perkins. What's this guy's deal? I'm not familiar with him terribly much. He was a subpar NBA player and he's above average broadcaster, but he does, this is not abnormal for him to do. And he is not white. That is correct. All right, so take a listen, cut forward to this guy's very upset because a white guy may be in the running here. Got 14. JJ, I need to know. Is the uchu Wally or is it one mic? I need to know when it comes down to the criteria moving the gold post for the MVPs because I understand you and the analytics. I understand you are a story you know the game of basketball, but I went and did a little research myself and since 1990 has only been three MVPs. That wasn't top ten in scoring that one letter ward. The whisky, Steve Nash, and yogurts. Now with all, what do they have in common? I let it sit there and marinate. I'm just trying to see, you know what I'm saying? When I walk into the club, do I need my J zone or is it a dress code? Do I need to put another, you know, a church shoes or some red bottoms or I need a note. Is it uchu Wally or is it one might? Like, what's the criteria when moving the gold post for certain players to win the MVP? I need to know. Because it seemed about the gold post move every single time where we want to push it out there, this particular pill that we want to win every piece 'cause we all know in 2006 when Kobe was averaging 31 when the Lakers were the 7 seed and the roster that he had compared to Steve Nash and Steve Nash won his second consecutive MVP in 2006, was he really supposed to win that? Was he really supposed to outdo COVID that year? I'm just trying to figure it out, bro, I'm trying to get on understanding what's the criteria why the goal posts move for certain players is the utility or is it one might carry on? So this is

Ray Comfort and Eric Discuss David Wilkerson
"Need to ask you. So when David walker, now he was my pastor, I started going to Times Square church in New York City in 1990. And in many ways, my that formed my spiritual foundation was a big part of it. And David wilkerson was a firebrand. Sometimes in a bad way, but 98% of the time in an amazingly wonderful way. He was just a character. I mean, just incredible, like an Old Testament prophet. And he you're saying that he discovered what you were saying. And this was in the 80s when was this? No, this was 1993. He called me from his car phone. He had listened to the teaching in his car. That was a big deal back then coined from a car. That's a big deal. And he flew me across to preach in the church in 1993. I got to have lunch with David Wilson, which thrilled me. It was more exciting than having lunch with John the Baptist because of what would have been on the menu for baptist. But it was a great thrill for me. And that opened up the ministry because his name is so well known then. I mean, it's funny because I was going to Times Square church in 1993. And I often forget things, but it seems to me now that I do remember being there when you preach because I was going to the church at that time. But I didn't realize you were on the left side on the third row back. Thank you. Left side facing the crowd or in the other direction. That would be about where I would have sat and I'm not even kidding. But

The Unimaginable Devastation in Turkey and Syria
"Since 1990 and I have never seen anything like Syria and turkey. And I remember this Sri Lankan tsunami in 2004, and we saw the aftermath sort of. We saw the wreckage, we saw the refugee centers. We saw the movie eventually, and of course during Hades 2010 earthquake, our hearts were touched. I have never seen anything like this. And I think it's because the development of the cities in which this 7.8 followed by a 7.5 earthquake separated by ten hours occurred in turkey. We don't really have the same number of images from Syria, has now fully revealed the extent of it's like Armageddon and there are some amazing stories this morning. I would begin by urging you as the fetching mister Hewitt and I did yesterday to help food for the poor because I trust them and our friend Tom Travis got organized with them on Monday on a call on Sunday on a call, actually, and we were up and running by Wednesday, when did it hit hit Monday, till we talked to him on Tuesday night, or Monday night, and said, we can put this together, so if you text my name, Hugh, H two 9 one 9 9 9, you can make a contribution that way, and they'll ask you

Levi Lusko: Hubble Space Telescope as a Spiritual Metaphor
"You like to talk about the Hubble telescope, how do you use that as a spiritual metaphor? It's a great story because the year is 1990 and Hubble has just been launched and they spend a billion and a half dollars on it. A lot of people thought it wasn't worth the money. But they said, no, if we can get this thing out there above the atmosphere, it can see the heavens and broadcast back to earth what it's seeing on obstructed and will have a greater understanding of our solar system and universe. And so they get this thing launched and they fire it up and everyone's sitting at NASA in the first image loads and it's blurry. Second image blurry, third all the images are blurry. It's worthless. It's very good at a lot of things. It just can't see very far because they miss calibrated the primary optical component, making Hubble basically nearsighted. Hubble needed glasses, guys. So what they did was they loaded up the same lens, but with the same problem backwards, and they loaded it up on space shuttle endeavor. They caught Hubble. Now mind you, it's moving 17,000 miles an hour, 366 miles above the earth, and they put the basically they put a contact lens in front of it. And when they fired it up afresh, all the images became crisp, and until James Webb telescope gets launched, presumably in the next 12 months or so, Hubble has been and remains the gold standard in telescopes that have ever reported images back of the deep space field, et cetera, et cetera. The story is cool because it shows us this. When Hubble was looking at the universe and sending blurry images back, the images it was seeing were in 3D. They were beautiful. They were crisp. The problem was the lens. And the lens it was looking through. And I think for a lot of us, when we look at our lives and we look at the pain that we face, we see blurry. And it's not that the things we're looking at are the problem. It's to how we're seeing them that is.
American Thinker: The Bad Inflation Numbers Are Even Worse Than the Government Says
"You've been hearing that inflation is at a 40 year high That we haven't seen this kind of inflation since 1982 And the ladies and gentlemen that would be bad enough But Andrew Whitmer over at American thinker points out that 40 year numbers misleading Deflation is obviously shot up with incredible speed as happened in 1982 But real inflation is probably worse Than the accelerated rate suggests That's because in 1990 The government changed how a calculated inflation something it also did in 1980 So it did it in 1990 And the George H. W. Bush and did it in 1980 under Carter John Williams shadow government statistics calculates inflation as it would have been calculated before 1980 And before 1990 according to his numbers inflation would have been over ready 15% using pre 1980 metrics and over 10% using pre 1990 metrics

"It's Latino rebels radio. And yes, you're listening to us on any podcast network out there. I don't have to list them all. We're entering our 8th year of doing this 8 years. 8 years of doing this and a special thanks to my producer, my new producer. My current producer. Oscar Fernandez for just being a fabulous person. And also sharing soccer, you know, Concacaf qualifying takes. But that's a different story. That we have to probably do a World Cup. Show down the road. And I'm already pitching Oscar. But anyway today, we want to talk history and particularly history of a borough of New York City. That is near and dear to my heart, The Bronx, so if people don't know a lot about me, they should know that I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, but I moved to The Bronx in the late 70s when my parents divorced and I grew up in The Bronx in the Bedford park area, which is off the D train in my, I guess my formative years, I would grow up as a kid in The Bronx and come back to Puerto Rico and I went to high school there and then I went to school up in the Boston area. So The Bronx is very special to me and what happened earlier this year with the tragic fire in the fordham area, which was kind of the edge of my neighborhood. I also went to school in the forum area. Really hit home, but I also think one of the things that was missed was sort of history in all this. So I have a fabulous guest from the boogie down Bronx. Who's going to introduce himself right now? Fabulous guests from The Bronx say hello and who you are. Hello. This is Jose Francisco Avila from the boogie down Bronx. From originally from Honduras, I am president Alta garifuna coalition on an author who's recently published my first book and is it about the history of my advocacy work, all of that, which happens right here in The Bronx. And this my advocacy, this is the 34th year of it, and it actually. Started in 1988. And it was interfere by the happy land social club fire, which had some relevance to what we're going to talk today. So it's a pleasure to be with you. Perfect. Yeah, I'm so excited that I bring someone with a history of, you know, let's be honest. If you live in The Bronx who grew up in The Bronx, I could have special. You know what I mean? I no longer call The Bronx home, but it is home, right? And this is why I'm really happy that you're here. But before we talk about the history and the happy land fire, let's set the stage a little bit because, you know, a lot of this conversation was being framed right now. Because of what happened in January around the new year, right where what happened in an apartment building in the Florida merrier that killed 17 people, including 8 children, making it one of the worst fires in the city's history, and that's according to CNN. You know, they say it's a malfunctioning electrical space heater. A lot of the people in the building were Muslim immigrants from the West African nation of Gambia, but it's let's talk about that first. The reaction you, someone in The Bronx who's been so active, where were your thoughts when that happened when that tragedy happened? Well, Julio, it was a tragic event and it brought back memories not only of 30 years ago but amazingly, I think it was 5, 7 years ago. There was a fire, a similar. It was less people, but it was an actually the victims of that fire were also Africans. I live in park Chester, which is where their religious procedures happen when they situations like that happen. So with this latest fire, besides reading about it, I saw the community congregate around here. There was so many people that they couldn't even fit. You know, a lot of people outside the street outside of the Musk. So that's how impactful it was. At the same time, of course, this is new year's is one of the coldest month of the year. And we have the tragic fire. And you have 17 people who perished, but at the same time, just about everyone in the building with dislocated and had to be thrown out. And watching on TV, bringing out the bodies and people jumping from windows in neighbors put in trash bags and mattresses. So people could land a bro back memory or 30 years ago but at the same time it brought back memories of 9 11. Remember those horrible pictures of people jumping from the so it was all of that. But yes, it was a tragic event. We still saw from the consequences. I would just read that there are people who are placed in hotels who still don't know what's going to be next. So as usual with fires, the fire is put out, but the community suffers and more importantly, the families of the victim continue to suffer. And that is. Yeah, those are longer, longer impacts. Exactly. Once we get the breaking news and the fire engines and all everyone seems to kind of ignore the community. But what was interesting about why we wanted to have you on, and want to shout out my producer Oscar Fernandez again was to try to make the connections. You just mentioned the happy land, social club fire, which I remember. It happened 1990, right? It's the most deadly in the history of the borough, right? It killed 87 people. Talk to me, you know, you said, wow, this reminded me not only of 9 11 or what happened 5, 7 years ago, but you instantly were like, it's the happy land fire of 1990. So for people that don't know what the happy landfire is. Can you explain that? And how are you making the connections now? What you know what I mean? Just share what you're thinking. Sure. Absolutely. Well, the hatred lens social club fire happened on March 25th, 1990. At that time, it was the worst fire, not just in The Bronx and the city of New York oh wow. Since 1911. Oh, I didn't know that, wow. Yeah, 1911 there was a fire in a factory where many women died in that fire. And it was interesting because what it just happened in January, I started reading comparison because now it's like, well, this fire with 17 people died is the worst in The Bronx since March 25th, 1990, when 87 people perished. And it's interesting. I was thinking about an in preparation for this interview, the similarities of how it happened. This one in January was a heater that set it up, but it started from what I understand from what I read on the third floor and the spoke just flew through the building and which is what killed people the happy and social club fire happened at a nightclub where people were dancing, drinking, having a great time. It was on a Saturday. Most of the victims were getting from the leader. Advocate here in The Bronx. And actually the happy land social club is part of my narrative when I talk about the history of our people. Because out of the 87 people.

"Worked if it was another sounds crazy? I want to talk to Jim Hurd for ad free shows dot com. He admitted that he had been trying to negotiate with Randy Savage. But that of worked, if he unmasked and oh my gosh, it's the macho man. Of course, absolutely. It's been phenomenal. But I don't know how close Randy was in leaving events. I know we know he eventually would, but Randy was doing a pretty good job, making some good money there during that run. And Vince loved him. And that's what Randy needed a lot, and you need a lot of love to be honest with you. He needed to read to feel like he was cared for immense something. He was very insecure. And I think that's what this offered Randy security I'm your guy. Look what we've done together so far. That group down there's crazy. And he could give about ten illustrations a week about how crazy we were. So Randy would have been a home run. Without a doubt. Interesting question here from Joe, Joe wants to know, do you think sting was the John Cena of his time? Oh, good question, Joe. Might have been a little bit. Might have been a little bit. Remember he was force fed. Anytime you found yourself in a position as a creator and you're force feeding something down another's throat, you have to be very, very careful. Because you did too hard and this is a baby face you're working with. People start spitting it back at you. So I could see that analogy being made and being pretty damn on target. Way to go, Joe. Well next week, we're going to be doing something pretty fun, but before we tell you about that, I want to go to the phone. So that's right the phones were actually letting people. Come on, the program and ask their question to Jim Ross right here. You do it over to ad freak shows dot com. And I think we've got a call right now. Let's take a listen. Hey JR, Brad Stanton, top guy here. About things 90 91 career where he feuded with the black scorpion for a lot of the time. What did you think of this? And how soon did you know that it was going to be Ric Flair? Was it always going to be Ric Flair? I've heard a lot of different things. So you've told us when you knew it was Ric Flair, but overall, in hindsight, was it worth a try, since it sold, not the pay per view, but it did Garner a ton of traffic television was. The biggest audience you guys have ever had, the biggest rating you ever had, that makes me think, okay, maybe it was worth a try. We just didn't have a plan for the end of this thing. It was definitely worth a try. There was something there. It was old school wrestling in reincarnated. The mass of the mysterious mass man from parts unknown. Or as we would say. So I should not be so Audrey. Yeah, it's worth a try, man. It was starting to work. But it wasn't. When you book a story if you're a screenwriter, you kind of got a pretty good idea of your characters are going to be. Right. And we didn't have that luxury, man. And now that luxury, but as sure as hell is worth a try. It just wasn't executed worth a shit. Well, we're going to try to do something fun next week. We're going to watch the Thursday raw from February of 1997. Of course, this is Thursday, raw Thursday. The very famous show where for whatever reason, Shawn Michaels lost his smile, will break all of that down next week. We'll talk about The Rock winning his first title. We'll talk about the go home build for the final four pay per view, just a week of chaos in the World Wrestling Federation, but I'll tell you what, if your life is a little chaotic, maybe it's time you just kick it old school, let me take it low and slow, of course I'm talking about JR's BBQ dot com. It's the place to be right now this time of year is it not you? Absolutely. Of course people are thinking. Oh, Jesus. I was going to talk about that goddamn barbecue sauce again. Yeah, here we go. Here we go, kids. A simple deal. It's a family business. Family recipes, we started and build it from scratch. I mean, from zero or bottom zero, we had a really good holiday season. I thought, anyway. And always could be better. But it's not a seasonal thing, you know, folks. The original sauce was my mom's recipe. I love the chipotle ketchup. Makes a great steak sauce, especially warmed up a little bit. My go to sandwich thing. I don't eat Mayo anymore. I do like that, that duke's Mayo, you're at duke's Mayo Conrad. I have. Pretty good. But I'm doing the mustard. It's got no sugar. I'm a diabetic too. So it's healthier for me. It's got great flavor. It makes turkey of a personality. Because turkey breast can be mighty boring. I should Jack it up with a Mesquite or this or that. What else live another life is the jalapeno honey mustard? And then, of course, no matter the weather, no matter what you're cooking, eggs, vegetables, proteins. Are seasoning is the cash cow. That's great. So we got some things that are good for the indoors. A lot.

"To get Conrad. I like to think that I have that attitude, but I know that you horseman have it. I know that you haven't only. Let me ask you a question. You want to just do something and hang on that microphone or you want me to hang on to it. Let me just say one thing, Terry. When we have an opportunity to get the other on national television, we are running along. A statement and tonight. Once again, the horsemen are going to make a statement and a behalf of the horsemen, the spokesman Ole Anderson has a few words. We want to make sure that everybody all around the country has an opportunity to hear what I'm about to say. And I want you in particular to pay attention to its sting because you're the reason we're here tonight. I want you to know you're not going to be a horseman anymore. It's over. No more horsemen for this thing. Yeah, don't close your mouth a second. I'm going to explain something to you. I want everybody to listen real close and you listen real close. When Rick called me and called on to come in here, it was for one reason. And the reason he called us in here was to get rid of you. When I tell you, just be quiet, there's three of us standing here and there's one of you. Just wait a second. One thing that nobody looked for and nobody could figure was when you jumped in and helped Rick against this guy. We held off. A little later in the Iron Man contest, we came in at ring and we were ready to stick your head in the sand again. And as we came through the ring, Rick gave us a pay attention. Rick gave us that sign and waved us off. You were spared for the second time. And then something that nobody would have ever dreamed could happen happen. When you became one of us, a horseman. And you were a good horseman. No argument about it. You're a great wrestler. You're tough, strong kid. But you did the one on forgivable thing. That we can never forget. You know what that was? When you signed that match to meet Ric Flair for the world title on February 25th, you signed your death warrant. Are you listening now? I'm gonna tell you what I said to Rick. We all agreed we should just stop you right now, but Rick says no no. No. He's helped me one time. We let him live one time. But on one condition, and the condition is this. You go to the promoter, you go to mister Jim Ross or whoever you got to talk to. And you tell him that you're gonna cancel that contract with this man wait a minute get over here. You just listen. You listen to me and you listen real good. Anybody even a blind man could see there's three of us and there's only one of you. We're going to spare your life. You got about two hours to make up your mind. What you're going to do. And I'm telling you right now, it's only because of his nice kindness that we're going to let you live right here. Two hours, you make up your mind, you go tell Ross, you tell everybody in the world on this national TV that you're going to give up that chance at the world title. You understand? Sting. I bought you a little time because what you got. The whole deal is this, you got two hours to make up your mind and you're no longer a harsh man, and if we ever see you again, you're not going to be quite so lucky as you are tonight. Come on. Look at this. I'm trying to tell you. I want you to die. Get out of here. I can not believe this but this is the greatest thing I've ever seen in my life. This is pathetic. Rick flair absolutely pathetic. He gave the guy chance. Well, gave the guy change. Yeah, you're a big chance. We're gonna be right back. Let's continues live. Don't go away. We'll be right. So there you go. What a masterful angle, it's great. Now we know sting is no longer a horseman. He's got two hours to decide, but it feels like the decision was made for him. Great angle man Terry funk and all the Anderson and Ric Flair and staying just good stuff. And I got shout out from Ole. How about that? No, it's well done. And I would say all those guys had a hand in only may have been the leader and the creative one of the guys that had great influence. But the all those guys were able to contribute. And look what you got there. Yeah, Ole. You got R? Aren't any bad talker? Somebody's noticed. You know, Terry funk took promos in the level of anybody. So and always has been that's one of his great skills. So I wasn't surprised it was good, but what I found funny in the after fact is how many times wholly tried to get everybody back on track and stay within the time that they had allotted for it. Did you notice that? Yeah. So he was directing traffic in only Anderson way. He would if he was the real guy. So it was a good piece of business. And literally one hour later, it all went to shit. Ole Anderson is going to replace thing in the cage match and sting is going to run out to confront flair, but as he's climbing the cage and gets pulled down, he blows out his knee. And this is going to be a major blow to the point where you guys all come back and mate in Atlanta, just figure out what the hell do we do now? On Tuesday, he's going to have surgery with doctor Jim Andrews. They're saying he's going to be out to August sting, is hoping to beat that and come back in July. But we got a pay per view later this month and we're scrambling to figure.

Are you going to the nearest thing? With the voice of wrestling. Hall of Famer, mister Jim Ross, goddamn. It's play Friday come on. Hey, hey, it's Conrad Thompson and you're listening to grilling JR with the voice of wrestling, mister Jim Ross, Jim, how are you, man? I'm good, Connie. I'm good. I had a little issue with my foot this week. Healing, but it's one of the old skin scabs away, sorry to be so blunt. And the new skin appears. It's really sensitive, so sincere to cold, it sensitive to heat. Touch. It's just I am the one legged man in an ass kicking contest. Hey, you got a chance. So anyway, the doctor said it was doing as well as they ever wanted. So I'm healing on the right track. She said, it's just not going to be the pain's not over yet. So I have medication for that if I need it. Take good care of me there to management. It's a whole different deal than what used to be. You know, we went through this period of time where you get paid minister from your doctor, you were frowned upon, and I said, hey, what's going on here? Did you try buffering? So anyway, now it's a different ball game. And held at 70 years old, I don't plan on developing any drug habits that don't already have. Hey, time, sir. So anyway, it's all really good. I want to work. I have missed any work, and I take pride in that statement. So anyway, all good, man. I'm still calling wrestling on Wednesday nights on TBS. Loving everyday minute of it. Well, we are so excited to be talking about our topic today. It's the man called sting and golly, man. What's new is old again or what's old is new again? You know how it goes. They're just as staying as still in ring and you're still working with him. All these years later, we're going to talk about maybe the most important year of his career, 1990 today, can you believe that it's been 32 years since sting when the world title? It feels like, I don't know, 15 years ago, not 32, goodness. The typical pro wrestler answer are former pro restaurants. Oh yeah, yeah, I remember. It's where the plaid shirt and Nikes. No, I don't remember shit. I remember it happening. I think I call that match. I think. Yeah, you did. And when I see where we say that, I don't anybody to miss understand I do care. It's just I've called so many epic matches. Thanks to the talent now, not me. Thanks to the talent. That men they cluttered up, oh yeah, yeah, yeah, I remember that. But I do remember the date. I thought it might be passed. I thought it was probably overdue. Should have happened earlier. You got to have instincts to tap tag in, somebody that's hot. And he was obviously hot. But we were obviously so unorganized. Nobody was paying enough attention, past the politics of booking. So anyway, that's how I looked at that situation. But he was Steve Borden was just a can't miss guy. And now he's back more focused. And I say that government laugh at me. He's older. He's a Christian. He has a different lifestyle. He has a different point of view and outlook. He has a new marriage. So he's got reason to have a major changes. And he seems motivated to want to pass it back on red and the Darby Allen. He's taken Darby under his wing. If nothing else on traveling and planning a match or it may be. So Steve is a he's done a lot of and he doesn't do a lot of ballet hood, but he's really a good mentor to the entire roster. There's not one person at roster. A wrestler. They wouldn't tell you they're a little stinger to some degree at some point in their wrestling fandom. Everybody covers every base. So anyway, that's what I'm thinking on that. We're really. Blessed to have it. He said, important to us. So I don't even think about his age. Tony Cox is not going to overbook him. Steve board is not going to let himself get over booked. He said, he thinks he can handle to maintain some level of sanity. So we're lucky right now a and to have him. Just like the folks in WCW, we're lucky to have him back 30 years ago. You remember those old dusty roads, a campaigns for the headache medicine that said something like, I know a thing or two about pain, something like that. Well, here's the deal. CBD isn't about what you feel. It's.

How Journalist Anatol Lieven Became the Ukraine Expert
"This is going to be a great time again for learning today. Look forward to this discussion. Thank you for being with me today. Hello. Hi there. Well, first off, let's explain sort of your background, how this became part of your basic expertise area and then working dig on into more of what we're seeing every day right now in the Ukraine. Well, I used to be a British journalist and I was a journalist for the London times newspaper. Well, I went there when it was still the Soviet Union at the start of 1990. And I spent 7 years in the former Soviet Union for the times from 19 to 96. And during that time I made several trips to Ukraine to all the different parts of Ukraine and I actually wrote a book on the Ukrainian Russian relationship called which you can still get on Amazon. Which is called Ukraine and Russia of fraternal rivalry. So that's the basis of my expertise.
The Eric Metaxas Show
Astrophysicist Hugh Ross Describes When He Learned of 'The Fine-Tuned Argument'
"Program. Welcome to the Eric metaxas show, Hugh Ross, great to see you. Good to see you, too. Thank you. Well, I mentioned in the beginning of the book that it really was you who got me thinking about things, for example, like the fine tuned universe. I had literally never heard about that until about 1990 when I read your book, maybe it was fingerprint of God. I can't remember which book it was. But I was astonished to read this, having never heard about it. And over the decades, I have been quietly amassing more and more evidence as it piles up as science draws us closer and closer to the idea it's obvious and intelligence created the universe there's no way this just happened. When did you in your career first notice these things or become acquainted with the fine tuned argument? It probably goes back to my teenage years. I mean, I started getting serious, but astronomy, when I was 7 years of age and wait a minute. That's no teenager. That's a very early, you're probably the world's youngest teenager, you're smart. You probably achieved teenage dumb at age 7. Okay, so at age 7, what happened in your life to get you thinking about this stuff? Well, I was looking up at the stars and wanted to know why they were hot and my parents said go to the library. And that started me on reading four or 5 books on astronomy and physics per week. And during my teenage years, I actually launched a research study in astronomy with my telescope, looking at newborn stars and different gaseous nebulae. I wound up winning the British Columbia science fair, went on to the Canadian science fair and then I decided, hey, I'm going to continue that. I've been fascinated with astronomy ever since. But I've got struck by the fine tuning, probably beginning at about each 15 is when I realized wow. Now hang on, when you say the British Columbia science fair. How old were you when you won the British Columbia science fair? I was 17.

"And then write a new thing. And then just because I'd be curious to be like, hey, you know what? Fuck that previous review. That was stupid. This is a four star movie. And it's like, you know, look at that. Yeah, that's a really cool to go back and be like, man, because I remember there's been a few films like that. I was like, well, I think dust hold on. I was like, what the fuck is this? I was like, I didn't get it. I didn't understand it. Then went back and watched it and I was like, damn. What they were doing? Like, what are ballsy ass film? Actually really good. You know? He did that with The Godfather part two when it came out. He gave it a very mixed review. Yeah. And basically saying he didn't get it, and he was too long to confusing and he didn't think much of it. But then he went back and watched it like 20 years later. And he had a list online of like his great movies, which was like the top 1% of 1% movies. And he put it in that group. After the 20 year he said this, then he was four stars and this is the top of the heap in great movie. And ironically, another movie he did that for just going to shock you. The big lebowski. Really? He gave it a mixed review and it came out, but then he watched it multiple times afterwards and loved it. I was the same. I didn't love it like you guys did. I thought the first time. I think I misremembered some scenes also, but yeah, after watching it, again, I was like, okay, yeah, that's a movie why I didn't even bring it up here because that's probably one of my favorite movies of all time. I love the dominant I watched it. And so yeah, I felt always so curious, go back and watch a movie like that and be like, what the hell? Yeah. He's like, what was I writing about? That's always kind of interesting to me. He did that for a lot of movies. Maybe the color purple. He actually lacked it less the second time. Oh wow. Still love the movie, but kind of downgraded his opinion of it a little bit. But yeah, that was a thing that he did. Trimmers, he would probably have given 5 and a half. He was just broken this whole. Hey, be like, I can't even. This is above. Compared to the bullshit that's come out and recent years. We've got to bump this up with notches. Yeah. What's great because this was before all the CGI special effects, which in some of the sequels started to kind of bog it down. They were like, all right, sweet, we can show them on screen all the time, and it kind of lost some of the magic. They evolved the monsters too. But what's great is all practical effects. Oh yeah. Which I love. Yeah. Just crazy. Some of the creatures just look like a fucked up sock puppet. Oh, I know. Yeah. The tongue tendril things the grabbers or whatever. I love that. Yeah, the little snake deals. But yeah, it just dust exploding fences falling down and you were like, yes, I'm going to put this on in the big screen. Well, I mean, again, going back to jaws.

And when I hear Salma Hayek, I'm legally contractually obligated to. I really wanted from dusseldorf to be one of my films also. But there's just not enough time. We will get to from rustled on and maybe the faculty as well. There were too many we should have near the end of our series of this, like other honorable mentions that people also need to watch. Yes. And from rest of the time, it's great. Actually, I didn't love it the first time I watched it. It hadn't grown me a little bit. So it took a couple of the same for me. I guess I just didn't quite understand it at first and then now it's obviously one of my favorite films. Written by Tarantino directed by Robert Rodriguez. It's kind of, I mean, I know we're not talking about it now, but it's kind of grindhouse esque because it's one film for the first hour and another film for the second half. Yeah, it's great. Yeah. I mean, some grindhouse before grindhouse. Burt gummer, Reba. Oh yeah. So we were coming back to them. Yeah. I really enjoyed those characters and I think it's no mistake that Michael gros character became like the basically the hero of the series. You know? Because it's like he seems to be the most resourceful. He's built kill those graboids with those massive potato guns, he's got. You know? Yeah. That's in the sequel. Yeah. Or no, that's in the third one. It's a potato gun. Yeah. Back to perfection. Yeah. I think that I can't say that I haven't seen the sequels but it's like, I think he and Reba are a good team in this movie. Yeah. I don't know why she didn't want to come back. I'm pretty sure she was direct video. No, thank you. What stars on the rise?.
"1990" Discussed on Cinemavino
"Yeah, totally down with that. Because Michael Gross was in, well, he's been in all the films. But again, I know we're talking about one, but two and three are definitely worth it. That's just like police academy. It's like one two and three are essential. After that, that's hit and miss. Yeah, they go to Russia. Yeah. And if motor mouth in it, you're not in good shape. So this movie is kind of like the bucker bonsai, where it didn't do well at the box office. Wasn't a hit. So it broke 16 million on a $10 million budget. They thought it was going to make about 5 times what it made. It did not. But it did really well on home video release and rentals. It was a hit. That's how I first saw it. It was one of the biggest rentals I think of 1990, because I read Wikipedia for I came over here. But that's how I first experienced it. It was on home. I found the same way. The old TBS on there all the time. So I saw this piecemeal like I did like Groundhog Day. Several other film. And this is a classic movie for me that when it pops up like that, I'll sit and watch about ten minutes of it. So just you know, it's kind of like walking by a big old plate of chips. I'm gonna have a few. I don't know, or like, just appetizers in general. It's like nachos. I'm gonna have some nachos. I'm not gonna have the whole plate, but I want to have quite a few nachos. Oh, I have. That's plate. Yeah. If it's tremors, I have the whole plate. I usually do too. But just for the sake of that metaphor. I'm only going to I'm just going to watch a little bit of it. Then you hit a couple of commercials and you're like, what else am I doing with my line? Yeah. And I was like, I just, I'm already sad in the press. I'm just going to watch the rest of this..

"I don't know if it was just like, I really think my family was like mom or Dallas like rented it and watched it and I watched it with them and I was like, this is really weird. But I've revisited it because kind of like some of my favorite films. They tend to be on TV a lot. And they're for a while. I trim just on all the time. And I just kept watching it and watching it watching it, and then I was like, okay, but Travis, I think you and I were we started to watch the other ones, like the two and the three. And then that got to me to like revisit the first one. Again, just to realize how good it actually was. I were rumors for a while and we didn't have any cables. So we watched a lot of DVDs. Yeah. And I think I brought some into was like, what the fuck is this? Well, there's nothing else on it. Let's do it. That's how I got tailored to enjoy Lord of the Rings. That's true. Watch it. All these years later. It's one of my favorites. It's still a good. It is one of my favorite films. And I wouldn't say sit here and give it X amount of stars. It's just, it is a film that is very cultish. And it is totally grown to that with all these other 7 of them now? Yeah. 7 or 8? I mean, it's just crazy. And I wouldn't be surprised if animated series on it needs to be. There was a sci-fi TV series. That was a keen episode of terrible. I know, at least one of the episodes I was like, oh, this is really pretty good. But obviously they were on a sci-fi budget and they couldn't do as much as they did in the films. Again, I said earlier, I love the dialog..
"1990" Discussed on Cinemavino
"And it is comical. And the more I've watched it, it is actually a really good written movie. Just dialog wise. I mean, I don't know if it really was intentional be that way. But it is a comedy of opinion. A comedy that this happens to have a gigantic monster that lives in the ground. Yeah. A lot of parallels, two jaws. Other than the basic plot. It's like you don't see a lot of the monster like you were saying. It's only hinted at and a lot of the movie. You see what it's doing. You know, you see it pulling down cars or tearing up buildings, but you don't actually see the monster except in bits and pieces. And it starts off picking off people before it gets to them basically the main cast you have to hunt and kill it, but you see it picking off random like the couple. Building their own house and yada yada, like it's you see how destructive it is before the final battle gets set up. And it gets smarter as it goes on. Exactly. It learns. Yeah. They remember. And yeah, it's like there's ways to defeat it. It has weaknesses. So but yeah, I am basically the people have to band together and get smart and like jaws to figure out how to kill it. So it really is like a nature man versus nature kind of thing. And I like how they had all the members of the town and I think the population was some like 14. Oh yeah. But you had the shop where everybody congregated, you had like the crazy survivalist couple you had the mother daughter with the daughter with the oh, also the little girl from Jurassic Park. Exactly. And yeah, this is a 100% inspired by jaws because everybody their car is essentially becomes the boat where it's a very the floor is lava style movie, which is just fun to watch. But it's interesting that the monsters have rules. Like, all right, you can get on some boulders, like it's a 100%. It's floors lava. I love it. You gotta get higher. Yeah, the guy's sitting in a tire. That was awesome. But yeah, and they have very different characters like Kevin Bacon, friend order, basically. They're kind of Tucker and Dale type guy. They're a little bit smarter than Tucker nailed it a little bit handier, but they're still the two bumpkins that are in charge of basically they're the two muscle guys when it comes to killing the monster..

Rediscover it. Yeah. Just to learn more about it and to learn more about themselves at the same time. Moving on. We're going to talk about Halloween series tonight.

Which is a classic cult film 1990. Spawned a whole bunch of sequels, which to be honest I haven't seen. You haven't seen any? The first two are worth it. Pretty good. Then stop. Wait, wait wait. Which one was the western one? Number four. That one actually was kind of okay. Travis does not approve of that. I thought it was okay. Yeah, Travis looks very angry. So basically quick run down.

Michael jackson ewing lewis and the news and whatnot and then in the nineties. They was early nineties empty. They were. They were still relevant in the early nineties. But you had that that that change. Would they started turning into christina aguilera and britney spears and the pop thing and tlc and all that stuff was really catered to the new generations. Like kind of what. We're seeing now And that's when we were moving on at that point anyways yes but never really recovered. No then they they.

Yeah i mean. I don't know how much there is to really talk about. He's an eighties either. We we em- he's one of those guys. What can we say that. That hasn't already been said and it's still being said about him ravs just it was a terrible tragedy in one of the one of the things that was really lousy about music started out in the the nineties in. I remember listening to it on. The radio is one of those things where you know you know exactly where you were when that happened it. Initially they were announcing that it. Was eric clapton that i was though it was wasn't that's i'm serious. I liked stevie. Ray vaughan better than eric clapton. So of course. I'm going to go that route right. I could tell you have a date with a girl that i was stationed in sacramento made reference base. I was supposed to go on a date with this girl and i. it's a saturday. It happened on a saturday. And i hear steve. Ray vaughan dead at the age of whatever he was twenty nine young. Yeah and i cancel the day and just go into this total binge drinking and stevie ray on cds all night The nobody was going to get in the way of that. That was that was a death that bothered me.

It's my turn to turn it on and and picking out the choices like i did to. My band was better than yours. So he'll huband without twist on it. Okay all right good okay. So you're supergroup. Right starts with the lead singer correct in a strange thing is that you've already mentioned them. Okay so is it. Lead singer of the band is it ice cube or ice tea. Ooh oh i gotta go. Ov- you got me buddy. You got your pin me down on this one. I always said ice. Tea is one of the best rap is of all time his flow. His style is his lyrical genius. But ice cubism beast. I gotta go with the new jack hustler. I d- i got it right all right. That's what we'll start move. Wow want interesting. This is an interesting snow looking. We'll continue on. Yeah absolutely so.

I appreciate the com the accommodation. You know things are a little bit crazy now. We're going to tell you all right by the way we didn't we didn't even talk about woodstock nineteen ninety four which was a huge event in the nineties. Again when you thought about decades is a lot to cover raking it down into into have kind of the best way to cover a a decade. Because you could go all over the place if he's doing all in one show well. It's it's kinda cool in that in that you had that whole new kind of wave of music not that it was new wave but a whole new way of new wave of music because if you think about the people that have been around a long time and i think you really did a nice job in terms of pointing out Voodoo lounge which was really a great album by the stones showed this staying power but they will one of the few exam. Nate nate neighbor great. Elton john album of the of the nineteen nineties right Pink floyd was gone. Even david bowie was struggling to find a new sound to figure out what he was actually in a do he did tin machine which was a fucking horrible experiment harbor and he put out a couple of albums that were really really lackluster right. There were a lot of bands. There were Started in the sixties seventies. Kinda did the mtv thing in the eighties and in the nineties. They kind of lost their way including including cc. Top you know. The whole eliminated thing in the synthesizer sound and whatnot added run. Its course yeah. They couldn't they couldn't match they just. They couldn't keep that up when it bridges to babylon komo.

"So where were you in. The in the in the early nineties beginning of my relationship with my now wife living in winthrop and then moved over to some of the some of the medford line but that was a a big change and it was a big change in in music for a lot of reasons. I think that music had changed dramatically or was on the verge of changing tomato and certainly did change. I i always use the phrase nirvana killed loverboy in thank god. They did allison chains killed cinderella. You know right well a killed poison. Alison chains killed warranted rela. I already said that. Find your own reference from sorry. She skin no screaming trees killed. Okay extreme grunge took over in the early nineties but it also at wild before it did that. It was always that changed. There's always that change in the decades right. some things bleed over. There was certain bands of bled over. But not all not all made it through the void. But i i think you bring up a good point. You know the decades. Don't start in end from a musical standpoint. the styling start to change sometimes prior to the decade. Starting so i think there are precursors to grunge in some of that actually believe it or not actually came out of la that were rebelling to a certain extent against the hairband metal bands. So when i think of bands like nine inch nails right. What i think of jane's addiction right even even guns n. roses to an extent now guns n. Roses was not a hair band. I i would. I never considered them a headband. They had long hair the soda bands in the sixties. Yeah like you know. Like i think i think they got lumped in with hair metal initially unfairly. So you know this is a band that came out of the dregs in that had A lot of grit to them. Where a lot of the bands. The hair bands of the late eighties early nineties including bands. Like loverboy really had more of a corporate feel. So it's kind of an interesting. You know you talk about history repeating itself. If you if you get into the mid seventies you have a lot of corporate rock foreigner. Boston thirty eight special. Kansas bands like that and there's nothing wrong with those bands. They have some great songs and whatnot but just a different field. Not as organic as some of the other things in what was the rebellion against that corporate rock and progress. That happened was punk. So say you end up to the nineties. Grunge is the new punk. Yeah exactly so you had again that whole corporate entity warrant big band loverboy big band at the time. Cinderella hair metal bands. and i. i hate to say this but to a certain extent. I blame van halen because they were the model light party band not only can really play but could do ballads and can do poppy stuff. And i think that it got watered down by the record companies saying we need to create our own version of van. Halen and i think that's where a lot of the hair metal came from. It's possible i think the la scene they went they they possible. It's right a reality seen Was they they were over. The top eccentric That that whole sunset strip every bed was trying to have bigger hair. It was almost like They were leapfrogging each other to try to and then they kind of saturated the scene and i mean i then you look at groups like cinderella. They were from like philadelphia. You know but you would have just if you see them and you didn't know where they were from. You'd think they were from that. Whole scene right on sunset strip. Maybe they go out there. But they're from philadelphia. I know that yeah. Yeah but like poison. I think we're from like ohio. Cincinnati or something like that went in. La did that the whole thing so it was the whiskey ago. Go on the sunset strip right following the likes of motley crew in van halen and following in those footsteps but you know they. The corporations the record companies wanted it down because they wanted to make it accessible to a to mtv into girls. Yeah yeah so they they. They kind of self-destructed they became oversaturated. Enter grunge and the thing about grunge is the people that were listening like say that. Say the people in the seattle scene that will listen to these bands and had them all to themselves. It's kinda like the counterculture of music They will not pretentious. They were not over the top. They just almost like a version of garage band garage. Rock and What happens is it starts to one video. One fucking video exploded like that. Was the fuse that let the the atom bomb. Not that bond as a few is but you know what i mean It lit the the the the stick of dynamite and when they played i think it was ricky was no ricky rachman then played it was on a hundred and twenty minutes who hosted one hundred and twenty minutes on. Mtv do you remember. I know we know who it is. I can't but he plays. Smells like teen spirit. And that thing went nuclear. No one ever heard anything like that. Nobody had seen the video like that. It was raw it was it was unhinged. It was it was total rebellion. And that was it the floodgates open so you start getting these people that were heavy metal people and rock and roll people straight rock and roll the started kind of leaning over into that scene and just like anything it lasted five years. And that was that for grunge in five years or so i think either due to drug addiction or just got sick of it bands got sick of it or they just didn't want to go mainstream or whatever. It was the only two bands that survived that really the made. The change were pearl jam and soundgarden pearl. Jam stopped doing videos. Like we're not gonna do this. We're not gonna play this game. Then they went to war with ticketmaster and lost soundgarden kind of lowered their that the that tone in a sense. They kind of changed their music. You know Started instead of like outshine. They were doing black hole sun. You know things like that which they will listen. I still say today. Chris cornell was the greatest thing of generation. And i've said number.

"You know metal head or the other headed honcker redhead. Punks school But now just turns out. He's really painfully shy. It's hilarious though. What did you think when when his parents came home and there. They think there's a scene where they think that he might be happy here. Yard on and they're like you know what we haven't been paying attention to what i kid does down in his basement. Hell we've never even been into his room and months of they're not open door open the door he finally after he hides radio equipment opens the door and they're confronting him and then this girl like steps off his porks and be like oh was just me. That's what he's talking to. His dad had the most hilariously ass on get in their pussy up reaction like i get. If you're a parent you wanna be kinda sorta cool about that. But like i don't think this is it chief this is. This is the way you want to deal with your your teenage son. Who's having his first perhaps sexual experience. Maybe not that invested in in his love life a little bit. He does think that this is the moment where his son becomes a man. It's pretty funny. One thing that i felt made this movie feel very dated is like in general. We talked about the dad being a hell. Yeah tap that ass on. But all of the adults were bewildering. They did not feel like real characters. Like the principal being cartoonish lee mustache twirling law. I'm getting all the disadvantaged children out of my school that's one thing but like there's this real consternation about all the graffiti and all of the i can see a school district being legit upset about what's going on here but there is this like there's this mass meeting at the schools baseball field where everyone is listening to. This stuff and like cops are driving around trying to triangulate signals. And they're trying to do this that and the other and i kept on thinking. Did they not know where the kids are meeting and leg. Disseminating all this information and getting everybody all heard up to do property destruction but then like the press is there. The fcc is there. And i'm like well. Why don't you shut this down like is there. Is there a curfew. This is happening at ten o'clock like if you're really this. It felt like there's a big gap between. Oh my god. This is a radio stations beaming into all. What can we possibly do to stop it. And like there's this big fucking carnival that's going every ten o'clock at the local baseball diamond and everyone knows about it but it's still being allowed to continue. It's like what. Yeah that was weird and it also feels like the teachers are both ruthless. But also incredibly impotent. Like they can't actually stop kids from playing music on campus. Now they can't stop people from graffiti in the place and putting up like their letters to happy harry hard on on the bulletin board. And there's just so many things where like you know the shop teacher the gym teacher. The this guy is comes in is like done not stupid. I'm not as dumb as you think i am. He turns off the radio and in two minutes later. Somebody else's playing. Let's get buck naked. And fuck and he's just like back to square one every time you see him right. And there's there's Another partisan microcosm is like seth green gets it up to like wire a boombox into the school speaker system. The play harry's hard on stuff and it can't turn it off. Yeah but it's like they're doing it from the middle of the school's courtyard like..
