Can 54 Holes Constitute a Golf Tour?

"Know another thing people don't know when they were talking about, oh, it's only 54 hoes. Like, that's not a real, it's not a real tour. It's not a real golf. So thanks, number one. There are 11 tours. Listed on the official world golf rankings page. 11 tours that get world golf ranking points. That only played 54 holes. Jeez. There you go. There's your answer. Let that sink in for a second. Before people were like, yeah, this is where the ring is no recognize. Bullcrap, there's 11 tours they recognize to get points. So there's that. And number two, and most importantly, and you can speak to this. The last time I checked, if the PGA Tour had a day get washed out completely and they go to 54 holes, guess what? Is that when official? Still get the points, baby. You still get the money? You don't get the points, and you still get everything that goes along with a PGA Tour win. Yep. That's it. So you seen on your tour 54 hoses, okay? But on another tour, it's not? Okay. Okay.

'Fire in the Streets' Author Douglas Groothius on the 3/5 Compromise

"Return to our conversation with the author of fire in the streets, how you can confidently respond to incendiary cultural topics like critical race theory. Douglas wrote heist. You were just going to talk about the notorious three fifths reference in our founding documents. Please talk about that because the misunderstanding on this is grotesque. Yes, if people are interested, I talk about this on pages 54 and 55 and give all the documentation to it. But the idea is that the constitution is intrinsically racist and supports slavery because it only gives African Americans three fifths representation. So the idea is this is how you typically greeted with this. The constitution says that African Americans are three fifths human. And recently, Whoopi Goldberg lowered it to one fourth. That was insightful. But the three fifths compromise is a compromise between the north and the south and the north wanted to limit the representational power, the voting power of the south in the new government. So they said, we're only going to allow you, they never used the word slave, never use the word black. Never use any word about color or race, but there was a reference to what were the slaves, and they only are allowed three fifths representation of a person. That was to limit the voting power of the south. I want to be clear that my audience gets this. Folks, do you understand that the racist slave holding south wanted to count their black slaves to give them more power as a state? And so the north said, no, you shouldn't be. They don't get to vote. They don't get to do anything. You shouldn't count them at all.

Elon Musk Is Facing a Serious Challenge in the Delaware Court

"Get into what's going on here with Twitter because it's significant and know that when I'm talking to you, you're hearing from somebody who's a huge fan of Elon Musk and believes that he's quite a visionary that has seen things long before anyone. But in terms of this particular deal, I'd be really surprised if it doesn't close. And I say that because you know what, you got contracts and you got courts and all of that stuff matters. Now, to his point, he's saying, look, you know, there's spam accounts. There's bot accounts and because of those bot accounts, I couldn't give a real valuation for the company. Well, the problem for him is that he said that before. In fact, you may have even tweeted that before. He did this deal. And so consequently, the company is going to say, hey, well, you knew, you actually even tweeted the stuff yourself. That's going to be a problem. The other thing that is a problem here is just the Delaware court itself. I mean, once you strike a deal, you kind of have to go through with it. If they don't go through with it, then it actually would put in jeopardy. Any other deal than any other business makes in the Delaware court kind of prides itself on being the gold standard in terms of being able to govern businesses. So while he may say gee, you know, I don't think it's worth the 54 20 to share it. I don't think it's worth 44 billion the companies going to argue as they have that he's just looking for an escape valve because the market went south and he doesn't want to pay as much.

Elon Musk's Deal With Twitter Goes Bust

"Kara, you are back. Again, you did such an amazing job the first time I said, y'all, I gotta have her back. We need to talk about what's going on with Elon Musk and Twitter. So apparently the news has come out. I'm looking at the article right now and say Elon Musk says he is terminating his deal to buy Twitter. Can you help my audience understand exactly what that means for Elon Musk and Twitter and what does that mean for the people when it comes to citizen citizenship censorship on social media platforms? Yeah, so this is crazy, right? It's been a roller coaster. It's been a total wild ride since Elon announced that he was going to try to take over Twitter. We've had our ups and downs, but right now, this seems to be the most definitive answer of the we haven't had a lot of good solid information until today. And it looks like this is going to be a battle that's bought in court. So what essentially Elon did today was say that Twitter is in material breach of contract because of bot. So they said that their platform was only composed of around 5% of spam box and Elon was like, I'm going to get someone like good really good data scientists and the analytical friends to look into that claim. And they found out in given the recent letter that Elon just sent to Twitter that it was impossible for them to determine the degree, the number of the percentage of bob's on this platform. So whether or not Elon was sort of jockeying for a discount, you'll remember that he offered to buy Twitter at 54 dollars and 20 cents a share, which is much higher than what it's trading today. I mean, since April, Twitter, according to The New York Times, is down about 24% in terms of shares. So it was never sort of a great fiduciary investment for Elon, but he did want to make it in his words a global platform for free speech. And the meltdown ensued and then finally the board gave in, and now it looks like Elon's going to walk away. He might pay the $1 billion walk away fee or he might get sued by Twitter to enforce Twitter has given indications that they're going to sue him. So we'll see what happens in court.

Rep. Jackie Speier Discusses the Next Front in the Abortion War

"You might have noticed that yesterday, Missouri, just announced one of their biggest hospitals, a 165 satellite facilities. They're not offering emergency contraception anymore. So you can see how this erosion is going to become, you know, a landslide in short order. You said something, you know, again, I keep saying we have to by any means necessary help as many women as we can now. Filibuster on and not get enough senators in. I mean, one step at a time here, but you said Rome may be dead, but medication abortion used by 54% of women who have abortions is FDA approved safe and effective, no clinic no waiting past the word. That's going to be the next front in this battle. Talk to us about that a little. Right. So the most people don't appreciate that the morning after pill is not medication abortion. Good morning, after pill is something you can take when you've had unprotected sex as a means of making sure that there is no implantation. The medication abortion is one that can be taken up to 12, maybe 11 to 12 weeks after you have been impregnated and in which the actual embryo is on the side of the wall of your uterus. So yes, it's what we didn't have in the 70s. It's what we do have today because of technology and advancements in pharmacology. And it is FDA approved since 2000 is mifepristone. You take one pill to stop the growth of the egg and then you take another pill to have it shed the egg. So yes, it's going, it's going to be the next, well, it's considered abortion. So that is part of what is being banned. And Republicans make no mistake or trying to come for all of it. They're going to try to make sure women can't get that. They can't cross state lines. I mean, as you said, today's Supreme Court decision is about ensuring women will never be equal, the Supreme Court has become an extreme weapon of the far

Mark Fleischman Plans to Die by Assisted Suicide

"I thought a lot about mock fleischman the other day because he's going to die soon. He's 80 years old. Actually he's going to die on July 13th. In Germany, but his wife of 27 years by his side. Some years after he stepped away from the insanity of owning nightclubs and restaurants, fleischmann understandably stepped away from the limelight that was the majority of his life. The last time I saw him was a little over two years ago. He invited me to a party that was throwing for the launch of his Studio 54 book. Is that some small joint in Beverly Hills? And the crowd was a mix of The Old Guard and the new. There was some New York City journalist dad too, namely my former nemesis at page 6, Richard Johnson. Fleischmann writing a book about Studio 54 was a good enough reason to get Johnson on a plane and out in LA to hang out. I said, the old man looks good. He said he sure does. Must been that good cocaine in the 80s and we both left. So smart fleshman came by and we posed for a picture. I wish I still have it somewhere. I got to find it. But he thanked both of us for helping keep the club and him and the column for years. It was a nice affair all in all, but I could tell this was one last gasp tomorrow. Like I said, I was closing in on 80. And so here we are. A couple three weeks away from July 13th. The day the music died from on fleischmann. And that's because several years ago, he became afflicted with a mysterious illness that would make him extremely dizzy at times. To his legs, sometimes flat out failing right beneath him. And over time, that illness could not be diagnosed by doctors and became worse and worse and more frightening by the day. As it is now Mark doesn't have any balance. He drops things and doesn't know where his body is in space. There was a time where a doctor is the very best doctor, by the way. Originally thought he had a form of Parkinson's, but it isn't that. Nobody knows what this is. He's suffering from. Once he heard that Mark knew what he had to do. One time he swallowed a bunch of Xanax, but doctors brought him back before he could overdose. When he was going to go buy a gun, his wife, Mimi, intercepted, and they had a long talk. Mark convinced her that he'd had a great life that he loves and now more than anything, but now what this mystery illness running his life, he said, it's time for me to say goodbye. Eventually, with his wife's support, they contacted a Swiss nonprofit group poll after multiple tests and psychiatric evaluations, it was obvious to see that Mark fleischman, a man who pumped so much life into New York City was now a candidate for assisted

Why Masculinity Must Be Celebrated

"You know it's kind of funny. I really wonderful and overly kind introduction to say one of the best broadcasters. The only thing I think or one of the things, rather, that makes a good broadcaster a good broadcaster is the knowledge of when they should stop talking and let somebody else who can say it better say it. You're going to be a great broadcaster by not saying something and letting somebody else say it better and I'm about to do that. Normally I won't play something long form more than probably a minute and a half in terms of an audio sound bite, but when we're talking about a prager U video, I'll just play the whole doggone thing. I'll play all four minutes and 54 seconds of it if it's something that is said better than I can say it. And since we're talking about Father's Day here as we begin our number two of the Dennis prager show, if you missed the first hour, we've been talking about the importance of fathers and we've been talking about the importance of masculinity in kids lives. Masculinity is not toxic or at least masculinity should not be considered by default toxic. Any more than white skin or light skin should be considered the skin of an oppressor. Just because there have been people with that color skin who ever pressed in the past. Just like people with darker colored skin should not be considered victims because there have been people with darker colored skin that have been victimized in the past. That's what CRT does, critical race theory. Well, when it comes to what we're talking about here, men and women, fathers and mothers, gender roles in raising families. I think it's extraordinarily important to recognize that just because someone is male and masculine, it doesn't make them toxic. Masculinity must be revered, it must be, it must be appreciated for what it can do and does do particularly in the context of families and raising children.

Welcome back from costa rica. what's going on this week. Jason i'm sitting actually from sitting. You could see one world trade center and made me think you know we should start this episode by just marking the twentieth anniversary of nine eleven. Which is coming up in a couple of days. I was reading something from george packer this past week. That got me thinking. And he wrote this. He said september eleven is buried so deep under layers of subsequent history and interpretation that. It's hard to sort out true feelings of that day but let's try. Where were you back then. Twenty years ago. I and what were your immediate feelings so i was going to college at american university in washington dc. I was in my last year of college. And i remember that morning stepping into the student center because everybody was gathered around the tv. In seeing I don't remember now if it was the first or second plane hitting the tower. I think it was the first. And then by the time. I got to my chemistry lab on the other side of campus It was a parent. I think from the second plane hitting that the country was under attack and i remember getting into an argument with my chemistry professor and being like why are we having class and then ended up the rest of the day. Just trying to find a way to help my roommates. And i went down near the capital. It was like a ghost town in d. c. We went down near the capital because we could give blood there and we stood in line for what felt like a couple of hours before somebody came out and said You know we don't have the capacity to take any more blood. I hope you can find another way to help. And i decided right then and there that i was going to join the military. Wow while i was in my first year of college. And i was actually in my second week and a friend of mine from staten island is came into my room. You know we weren't as wired back down as one thing i remember is that we weren't like getting alerts all the time he had to be in front of your laptop or in front of a tv and it was one of those weird things that i have you ever seen the movie. Jfk when they're like. Oh the president's shot no who has a tv right kind of reminds me of that in a sense that we were just like in college and none of us really properly set up at that point so we all went to the dining hall and started watching from there and what was surreal about it was. I grew up in new york city. But i was upstate. For the first time in my life really you know living away from home and we were sitting around watching this and a buddy of mine from a neighborhood who from staten also lived in my dorm building and we were watching it and he comes to the realization that his father was police officer in the city and over the course of the next few days and then weeks kept going back to staten island is father is missing turns out. His father was a police officer. Who's bringing oxygen to firefighters in the north tower and of they eventually recovered his remains. And you stanton island was crazy hard. Hit everybody has sat. Now is no somebody who is lost. You know there's a church down the street from a house that loss twenty eight members. There's a school near me. Las twenty three of the Tipco is that lost the most people two out of of them were staten island. Zip codes in part of the reason. Is that there are a lot of computers but another part of the reason is that there are a lot of firefighters cops and you know. I know that there's been this this debate in some ways of really important debate about police officers in law enforcement. But you know. I think it hits a little bit different where i come from because people that serve memory. You know your neighbors are cops and you have this image of cops or people put their lives on the line and some people who never made it back. You know. Another thing about nine eleven. That was really weird about my childhood is that i grew up. Essentially on top of the largest dump in the world called fresh kills. And my family's from this town called travis and sat down and it was the sole residential dumping grounds for.

"Let's get to this week and misinformation and jd. Since we have you here we want to talk about the rural votes and how democrats can stop their backside worth world voters in this country and in twenty twenty took an rv to each of the three hundred seventy four towns in your district. Let's just start with what you learn on that trip. Well in in twenty eighteen. I did the same thing. But i went to. I went to all thirty nine counties at least three times and so our campaign was very unconventional in the sense that we didn't necessarily do campaign in a box where you just do call time. Call time call time. I did a lot of time while driving the rv and did the best we can with all that. But we really wanted to get out there and hear from people because in a district that has seventy thousand more registered republicans and democrats. You're not gonna win by just a tv ad No matter how good your tv ads are and so we had to get out there in in to me after these elections i feel like i had this wealth of knowledge and i saw where the democrat party is going in to see where. There's this huge gap in where people are and not. It's not necessarily politically just how we campaign in. So that's where this really kinda started at my partner in this Roy vote dot org. Is matt hildreth. Who runs through organizing organ. We talked so much after the election about like. This is what we should be doing. This is what we need to be doing. And so we thought if we combined our efforts We could really do something special. And so think of carroll county which is in the district here in in two thousand eight voted for obama in twenty twenty it voted for trump at seventy one percent and so what is a county let carroll county not a lot of people don't move in or move out of carroll county but why has that shifted so dramatically and there's a lot of reasons but the number one by far to me and what i saw on the ground in what i see out. There is the missing disinformation especially on facebook. Hardly anybody in two thousand eight was really in tune with facebook the way they are now this district. The fourth district is the number one district in america that republicans and democratic voters are on facebook. And and you look at the top ten things every day that is posted on facebook and there's twitter account documents this seven out of ten off ten out of ten. It's right wing thing it's Ben shapiro aban gino A and breitbart all that stuff in ultimately we have to find a way to get messengers out there in. It's it's not so much the message. It's the messengers and that's what we're really working on. Anything interesting about that is probably a fair amount of people listening to this right now. Who come from parts of the country. That are nowhere near where you are ira from and it might be shocking to them to learn that the vast majority of voters in your district are getting a lot of their information from facebook because honestly they might think that people don't have internet access right they did and so when you think about the small tactical plays the democrats tried to make to cater to row voters like like rural broadband. There's a lot of people who do need better broadband but there's a lot of people who are like i have good internet right right. Those people are voting and they're getting information over the internet. That is deceiving them. And i think your point is the way to break through that. Is you have to physically go to one of the things. I heard most often in rural areas. And i bet you've heard this too was. Wow it has been a long time since anyone came here it in. That's what i talked with aurora a lot about when he was running for president. And in just about you know having these conversations in in going into these places that traditionally don't vote democrat and just talking with folks in you never know I think jason when you came appear to sioux city in in Spoke used your Little anecdote about the first time you went door knocking in how important that was. And i use that the whole two campaigns. No i remember that. And i appreciate it. The basic premise of the whole thing is that most voters aren't actually like going down a spreadsheet of your beliefs and trying to figure out if there's lineup with yours what they're really doing sizing you up for whether you care about. People like them and showing up is a huge part of that like showing up in a community. That doesn't usually get particularly democratic candidates to show up communicates that like would you matter to me. I'm here did you. And this might be where you're going when you show up. What do we say you know. Because obviously what you're saying is going to be different than if i were running for congress in south of manhattan rate What are what are the messages that you find resonate with bro voters. I think the biggest thing is is listen in the more you listen to them the more they start believing in you. I i heard this great anecdote about bill clinton where he was. Somebody was talking to them like saying something that he didn't agree at all in just like really challenging him and then at the end he just goes you know what i think. We both agree and he moved on. And you never know like Certain people you're never going to get a hold of. But i think it boils down to this again going back to the poll that we did with yougov a couple of months ago. That really put a spotlight on this. And this is rural battleground voters across the nation. Eight different Battleground states in our pollster. John ray did a great job. He said this is probably one of the most substantial pulling he's ever done and we just took what we thought would be generic decent rural candidate and and just we put them up against someone who is from the coast. Very wealthy who wants to give tax breaks to the the super wealthy and that generic candidate wins by like thirty four thirty five percent. Then you put a d by that candidate. They lose by one percent. That's what we're up against. And we see. In missouri with worker's rights you see in nebraska and utah in idaho with a passing medicaid expansion. You saw a marijuana being passed in in south dakota in fifteen dollars minimum wage in florida. Our policies are extremely popular right now. So it's not so much that talking about oh this. This one thing is going to change your life in beef for you or anything like that. It's it's about the brand in the democratic brand and it's it goes hand in hand with the missing disinformation that's just being spewed constantly. And that's what we're up against. Let's go back through. The premise of what ravi was saying a second ago. Because i wanna play with it. So you know ravi saying obviously if i were to run for congress in the southern part of manhattan. I would sound different than i would. If i were in iowa's fourth district..

"Right and and and wealthy. But they're now conflating it with any with not being american to the point where they're actually as we've seen portraying and attempted coup as an act of patriotism right like i mean that's the that is obviously the natural extension of all this and so it's a great article that i recommend about the anti american right and i think it does fit into this because it's this idea of like america is fine the way it is in no way needs to be improved and that can be about roads and bridges. That can be about civil rights. It doesn't matter if you seek to improve america in any way that is not take america backwards to another time. Then you are there for anti-american and in the article he goes into it goes to the extremes of like there are actual think tanks out there that are flatly saying that they don't believe really in democracy that they think we should have some sort of more of a monarchy approach and this stuff is real and it reminds me of a few months ago when diana came on the show and talked from her perspective as a as a refugee of religious persecution in the soviet union that we've always taken for granted the idea that while we disagree on things in this country the unifying sort of national religion if you will has been democracy but her point was that's not really true like you can't just take for granted the idea that everybody thinks democracy is good not every american wants democracy and it's really troubling and i just thought i was thinking about it a lot when i saw people actually excited when the. Us women's national team became attic content lost and became out of contention for the gold medal. I was form expire that yet. There's a there's a great book out there from a couple years ago from yasha monk where he talks about the democratic threat to liberalism and he uses liberalism as the lower case l. liberalism meaning like there can be majorities who come to power and they could use their majorities to chip away at things like freedom of speech and democracy and all that so basically consolidate authoritarianism through the democratic process and give examples of how that can happen now. We've reached the point where it's it's both antidemocratic anti liberal. They're not winning elections But they're still trying to chip away at the foundations of our country and our country's values whether they be free speech for the the right to vote etc and just pluralism period. I think. I often think to myself about these people waving the american flag. And sort of you know wrapping themselves in it. I would really want to go through with them. And be like really mean all fifty stars of that flag because it seems like you've written off bob so many states so many groups of people that are represented in that flag to and. I don't think that we have that conversation enough. The reason this upsets me. There's so many reasons. The the anti-american right thing upsets me but one of the things that really bothers me is. We often talk about ways to get across to other people on the show and oftentimes we will cite things like what other countries are doing right like just a minute ago. We were saying. Look what they're doing in china. We have to keep up with that. It has been until not long ago standard in america to say well. Russia is doing x. And we don't wanna be like russia right like we don't want to imprison journalists. We don't want to have our elections beef just for show and not allow certain people to vote. We don't want those things but then came trump who all of a sudden when he's asked about putin sixteen starting to say things like well you know he's a very strong leader you know and then same thing with north korea and that kind of thing and and all of that is how we've gotten to a point where we no longer can say. Hey as a country. Don't we want to out compete the rest of the world. And don't we alternatively not want to be like some of the worst actors on the on the world stage and increasingly. What's frightening is the answer to both of those questions. It keeps coming back. Not really right like that's fine. China's better like nah basically. I think you get back. Is china's not going to be better than us because we're white right. I mean that's what people think and then on the rush apart they're like well. I mean you know. Russia seems to take care of business. I mean i think that's frightening. And i think that the author of this article is right to name this what it is. Which is the anti-american right. Jason i've been travelling to italy in my head for the greater part of the past two years and i just haven't been imagining it. I've been using our sponsor babble to catch up on my italian as i've talked about before on this podcast. I had great italian teachers in middle school and high school.

"Right. Well jason four this week and misinformation wanna keep it light. Let's let's poke some fun at some ohio politicians and i and i love the great state of ohio. I was conceived in that state. Which is something. My mom hates it. When i say the ohio is instructive. It's instructor for a few reasons number one. It's a state that democrats used to win and we've been finding it harder to win over the past few cycles And it's also a state where there was this particular kind of republican like the mike dewine type pro business. Yada yada yada journalism. Yeah casick kinda moderate right and now We have a new kind of politician. We have politicians like jd. Vanson josh mandel. Who are they themselves. Were the old brand. Before which i'm sure you have some thoughts about like people who were position themselves as moderates. Jd events had previously site in two thousand sixteen that he couldn't stomach trump in an interview to terry gross and now tacking extremely hard right And sucking up to trump. I know that you have some evidence of josh mandel. The state treasurer doing the same. The same is true. Also the state. Gop chair jane timken who you know like a good a good case study of this is is this guy Representative anthony gonzalez. Who was an ohio state university receiver. He was an nfl first round draft pick but he you know committed the senate voting to impeach trump and in even in the weeks ahead after that vote to impeach trump. Jane timken that's state. Gop chair called him an effective legislator and a very good person racy praising him when she thought the Does this even just a few months ago. When she thought that the politics were good for that but then once she decided to jump into the race for senate. She's been denouncing him. And so i think this means something really. This is something is meaningful as a sort of bellwether for the. Gop's heading jason as somebody who ran in missouri. Which is a state that i think has become harder for democrats to win. What do you make of this and condemn crafts capitalize on this extreme turn to potentially win the state of the first thing that i think is really confusing about it. Is it's not as if that brand of republicans still doesn't still exist in the electorate there right so so my point is i think it's fascinating that you have this group of voters in this primary who you know i i would imagine are probably the majority of voters But they're not the entirety of those voters and that nobody in that race has the stones to be like. You know what. There's gonna be a lot of people in this race and i'm not gonna go compete for the voters everyone else's competing for i'm going to go compete for the voters who i think will be enough for me to actually win a primary that split several different directions and by the way that then puts me in a better position to win the general election. I think for instance about our friend. Spencer cox who we interviewed on the show who won a primary in utah running a guy who admitted like i didn't vote for trump and i'm not a fan of trump and he won the republican primary because he looked at it and he said One guy who's not gonna actually just say whatever he has to say to win. He actually believes in some things but he also recognized that there was a lane for that that it wasn't going to be the majority of those voters but it was going to be enough to win and i'm fascinated that nobody is doing that in this primary. Considering the fact that that's who most of these people actually seem to be like it's incredible to the extent that they maybe that's who they are or maybe that's what they thought. Everybody was looking for at one point in time. No you don't know right like that's one of the things i said this week. Is that actually. Jd vance is entirely consistent. He pandered to the you know like crowd who stood up to trump when he thought that was cool and now he literally apologizes for doing that when he thinks that's cool so he's very consistent in that he believes in nothing other than advancing. Jd vance so i guess in that way he's iraq But i my my point is that that i think is odd But then beyond that. Yeah i think it absolutely creates a Opportunity for democrats but not just because they're gonna the republicans are going to go in a direction. That's just all trump all the time and it's not just that it's that combined with the fact that democrats actually have a lot to brag about if we'll start bragging about it like there's always this thing in the party of people in states like mine who are democrats who get upset about you know some of the issues that are pushed by by afc and focus on the coast. And i always say to those folks. It's like look you. You should waste no time worrying about what other members of the party who are incentivized to talk about the issues. That are issues where they're from like trying to get them to talk only about things that are going to play better here. Don't do that instead. Make the mainstream conversation of the party doesn't have to be more moderate but just make it the stuff that wins here make it about dacoven. Relief packages make it about infrastructure. Make it about the stimulus. Make it about the child tax credit. Make it about the issues that really move voters in our state to the point. Where then they you know other people in the party can talk about those issues but they're ultimately come home to talk about the things we all agree on and the example of this is last year while there were all sorts of different issues out there that you could be picked up on by by the the further left folks. At the end of the day everybody came back to the same basic argument. Which was we got to elect joe biden and if we can consistently have a mainstream core message like that we can win but if you can do that in ohio combined with the primary forcing all of them to go hard hard right trump then you should win and you should win by fair march right when i think of these guys and gals i think about my experience often. I coach candidates. Right when i when i've been running arena and in a common experience i had before covert is somebody come into my office. And they'll say. I want to run for office but i'm worried about x. y. and z. And i'll say well look like the only way to run is to run in a way where you could look back and say you proud of dick. Statistically you're not likely to win you should. you should absolutely believe you're gonna win and you should like stridently. Move forward with confidence but you need to prepare for the possibility that you don't for one reason or another and you want to look back and say i'm proud of what i did. And i think about this field fielded candidates and only one of them is gonna make out of the primary and potentially none of them wins the whole election right which means that most of them are gonna go home with consolation. Prize in that constellation prize is going to be massive. Shame about the fact that they've thrown out at least in the case of events. And i guess mandel before but i think this is his third time running for senate or something like third year. So he's been through this exercise. I think before they're now going to like the the majority of these people in this race all but one or maybe even none are going to go home with a completely fraudulent record..

"Yes last. One is great. Cameron breen. I think is that right. Great i'm looking at grace right now. I feel like something. I'm getting settled on a reasonable question. Here you go. i mean it is. it is this is like a long running joke that a friend. I did teach for america. With and i have He lives in williamsburg. And we're always watching all these movies and tv shows and seeing these extravagant places So what he wanted to know was as a former educator and every man such as yourself robbie how how do you live in such a friends esque apartments. And how can you go on all these amazing surf adventures mostly because he wants to know how to do himself but we ended with much love from former educators. And we really appreciate what you do. Honestly we have weekly phone calls. Recapping y'all's podcast. It's fun new york connection for us. It's funny. I've always thought about like of a fire ever to write a book it would be about. There's this book that does this book called. what what i was doing while you were breeding. Has anybody read this book. Yeah so it's about somebody who's a woman who worked i think for tech company or something and kind of made the choices i made. Which is jason.

"Rural missouri. So i would say he knows yes. Okay so i'm take a step back and do the broader part of the question like basically the military community Convincing folks so. I apologize this rift. Some of you have heard before but you gotta start with the fact that it's not that folks are in the military that they are there for conservative right the military if you showed me any workplace where four out of five people there are are men not women and there are disproportionately drawn from the south and the midwest. I would say the majority of people network boys are republicans that's how they were raised and the and so. That's that tends to be. Why right now. Your dad living in rural missouri is sort of evidence to my point right so good news because i get this question a lot. Good news it's not a secret strategy or some silver bullet about convincing the military. It is much simpler than that really. It's about that demographic of people who fit into that and if you look at this last election where at least i don't remember. I didn't look at the exit on this. Or i wasn't interested enough. I guess to look at the exercise because we won but the pulse beforehand showed for the first time in a long time the majority of active duty military. We're actually voting for the democratic candidate. Which is a big big deal. Not because they're military but because that means a demographic that it overwhelmingly comes from those routes that i mentioned decided to turn against those ancestral roots. My point is they are persuadable. And when i talked to folks about it if you want to go with that route what i always say to people. It's like look when we were in the military. We were in a socialist world like we lived in a with three squares a day. Housing paid for and then they say and they're not wrong and they say it with a fair amount of indignant. I was serving my country. And i'm like yeah you were but do you think some of it worked. You know i'm not saying you gotta make an argument for socialism but like some of that was pretty organized right. I worked pretty well. So i start with that and then i just go into a much more emotional argument which is like. Hey look you joined the military because you believe in taking care of other americans and trying to protect them and even if you aren't gonna convince them with this you can at least relate to them by saying like. I just want you to know like i really appreciate that. And that's my politics are about that like i just care about people. Even if i've never met him. Which i think is what you were trying to do in the military so maybe with your dad maybe say like. Hey dad like i know. You don't want anybody to touch your money. And i understand and we have a different idea about taxes and that kind of stuff but you see no dad like mine comes from the fact that there are people that don't even know who i think you know. Maybe they could use a little extra a little hand up and so just like you were doing to try to protect them in the military. Something like that. Yeah to that. I think the frame of service in general like there's so many voters out there that are just begging for purpose like politics is exhausting. it's soul-sapping and to engage in politics. In america today is to inherently. Close yourself off in some ways from other people that is the default and i think in a situation like that i try to think about like. Can we get to a rhetoric. That is the ask not what your country can do for you. Rhetoric that that resonates with with military folks it resonates with people in the medical profession teachers etc. It's harder to get through to people on this before by almost every metric. We're more individualistic. Less communal less trusting. And mrs touche's than we've ever been before but we need to be the party that that asks people to recommit i think those communities and those bonds and i think the delicate dance here and i'm guilty of not getting this right. All the time. Is that in order to do that. We have to be tolerant of the journey as we've talked about it and i think party struggles with this right now. The republican party has given up on it to be clear but like our party. I often hear people using language about people's immutable characteristics and where they are enclosing them off from the conversation or limiting the way that they can participate. Because your ex. you're rural you're y you're black. Whatever like i mean so many rooms where people are described before you even get to know them. And they're put into a certain box about how they're going to participate and people pick up on that. And so like for instance. If you're not for universal healthcare heck if you don't love medicare but you tear about our democracy and you're just angry about the republican version of the democracy and you're like i'm going to prioritize that before anything else and i look forward to the day when when i oppose you again when it's pocketbook issues. But i'm just so scared for our democracy that i'm going to like lock arms with you and support your candidates. I want that person to feel welcome like in our party even if we disagree on ninety percent if it's ten percent and they're willing to come in our direction the least we can be civil with them because they're giving up ninety percent of their agenda. It's not like we're going to bend our agenda to them. It's just about being civil and giving them a seat at the table to be a part of what we are but our democracy needs that because we can't afford to exclude people right now that way. We need every single person. We literally needed every person in this last election when that election this last one.

"Their district. Is kansas city. What that is. An example of is the republicans getting so much power that they're like and now we'll tell you what to do and how much power you can have so if we forget to continue to make the case in places that we don't absolutely control then we will lose more and more ground until we don't control the areas we control now so my point is the i guess the answer is it doesn't matter what the odds are. You have to go out. And affirmatively make the case on all of those issues all the time. Even when you're not winning those elections. I think it also depends on what level right so just picking like the easiest to discern which is presidential rate. Why did we you know. Take down romney so effectively for example because he was so perfectly representative of this out of touch kind of stiff elite that wanted to protect his own fortune and couldn't relate to the average person and i think we fooled ourselves when we got trump into thinking that he was similar in the way that people viewed him and i think what we missed was that he was a cultural symbol. More than anything else. Like romney was a cultural caricature like almas. If you're like in a movie trying to cast this person like he was perfect. Yeah whereas trump. I think people they look at the dollars and cents and forget the way he was acting sent a message. I think we were late to figure out how people are interpreting them and obviously there was a segment of people that that had straight up racial interpretations of it and those people were never going to win but there are a lot of people i know who like f you to the system and just so fed up and they feel like the world is. They're losing track of everything that's happening. Everything's happening fast. They feel like there's this party that's happening at the expense of like this. Why the gavin. Newsom breaking his own protocols to hang out in a rust a fancy restaurant is. I'm obsessed with these examples because they may be trivial but the average person sitting at home. It's like i don't care if you cancel everybody's rent gavin newsom. I'm gonna remember you with your slicked back hair. Seen a fancy restaurant. While i can't even go to the park and we as democrats need to remember that like the nfl dotes republicans. They make us eat them like we just cannot screw these things up and so it's not that we just can't make mistakes that we have to we have to tell stories of the republicans are taking these anecdotes and they're a good trial lawyer. They're just closing strong on little things that they make into big things and we are like the big things right getting a little things wrong. We're like we're you know this year. We passed legislation that dramatically improve the lives of poor people in this country. Now are we going to close on an argument in the next election that tells that story effectively more effectively than you know. Some university professor getting shouted down in a room like like. Can we win this argument. You know this is. This is why obama was effective. Is that he was a storyteller. And why some of our candidates do better than others is not because they have good policy or not but they're able to weave together a story that's component american people. Yeah know you've probably heard me say this way too many times but like every single issue is about one thing for things that relate to one thing which is everybody just wants their family to be happy healthy safe in nearby and in places like rome zuri rural anywhere but not even just places like kansas city. All anybody really wants right left center is we're just trying to make it so that our kids don't have to like go somewhere else to get a good job because we just want to be around her family and the child tax credit. All of these things we do. We don't actually have to call it. The child tax credit. We don't actually have. We could just be like. Hey you know by a really good job making it less likely that my kid has to leave and i think that that's a i mean. The thing is in like here. We're all worried like our kids are going to have to go to new york or wherever and in warren's berg they're worried that they're going to have to go to saint louis and it and it just everywhere you that's the case and we gotta speak to that so Thanks for the question. Lead injury grayson. we okay. On time i got one more after this. The last one is also a gift to ravi. Because i didn't let him do. Aren't we relatable corner. Yes all right. So the one after this we'll be called quarantine corner before which is a running battle between mean grace about whether we can keep it in the outline every week. Hi my name's leader gentry. my question was about. how do we help the. I don't wanna like older generation military but more that institutional military come towards the metal And my eyes. I'm thinking like my dad. Who served the military for thirty five years and when you talk to him on on one super liberal when it comes to the voting booth not at all so where do we start so it goods unpack it a little so when you say you talk to your dad one on one super like what kind of stuff is he. Well yeah. i agree with that. Recycling gay rights relative gun control believes that it should be similar to driving a car and outside of that. He doesn't want you to touch his money at all. So you kind of put the question like like sort sorta. How did you convince. The veterans is your dad's friends or most of them republican. He lives in.

"This is ravi wheelhouse. So step back from the ninth and tenth grade so fourteen old we guys can follow up question just to narrow narrow it down. What is your goal to persuade her. As your goal just to sort of like stop the crate like just kind of have them actually learn what's really happening so it's more so the latter two but also like i think a lot of like the ethical bounds. I have as a teacher not wanting to like overstep by any means and making it where my views are being pushed onto my students by any means perfectly themed question to go with our misinformation. Thanks ravi yeah. I think you're you're already in some ways given a gift in that as a teacher. You know you no matter what. Your views are generally aren't allowed to to to push your students to have any certain kind of politics and in some ways that's helpful and helpful that you teach social studies because all the critical race theory debate aside which we're going to talk about next week there are so many tools at your disposal in our history and there's this book i keep mentioning called these troops from jill lepore but there's so many books like this where you have good foundational texts now that have been coming out over the past ten years some of which are not controversial at the moment that you can use to teach people for example. Jason and i were talking about that. There's evidence that george washington for example. What what do you think you know about. George washington teeth that their wooden things right but the poorer argues. And there's some dispute about this that they were pulled from the mouths of slaves right. So that's a lesson right there is to say you don't have to go all the way and say in that lesson and therefore america is blank. The students can put to into together right. You can say all right. Let's picture this. Let's visualize it. Let's think about what that means and you don't have to add it up for people you can pick those examples to say. We love our country but there are things about this country that that happened a long time ago that are super relevant to the problems that we have today and you can kind of.

"Want her to be win not to be president. This is only winning. This is about winning elections and so in that spirit. My second is going to be frank underwood. Whose similar character. I'm just saying winning. That's all i'm saying. I'm just talking about winning. I really thought i was going to get stuck in the last names that thank you. Here's the thing. He was basically winning every season. Against all odds. and then. If it wasn't for kevin spacey being creep. He would have continued to win but they had the right. They had to write him out of the story so it took like something outside of the character in order to stop him. So i'm feeling good about our chances if we've got frank underwood on that ticket. Very compelling any. You could just argue. He was technically a democrat. He's successful democrat in both fictional and nonfiction rapid rise. Yeah captain jack sparrow. Because at this point it would just be a really fun campaign to work if you were working on frank underwood like everyday. It'd be like oh my god. We're going to be like if captain jack sparrow. Is your candidate. You'd be like who who knows you know like it's going to be great. Voters want to see you having fun. Yeah i think it would be a great campaign. There's no names left on the list. Grayson name left on the loaders. We're who who nope know she goes you name well. Okay leslie biz last. May i just say she retired. I have qualms she's not last she's my pick.

"Full list until now on extended list. They're fine and make it a little hard. Okay all right. So we're going to get started really quickly. I may. I may also dole out points as i see fit i retain the okay. We drew straws earlier and ravi. You have the first choice will. This is really exciting. Because i know jason would pick this first. Kansas city native jason. Today this so i'm going to go with ted lasso and one of the many gifts that majority fifty four is giving you is that it came on before the show came out. And you heard. I just how awesome that show is going to be but i. I have a whiteboard that i put like mantras and one of them is be ted lasso. And he's just such an inspiring optimistic positive person which i think still can work in politics. But he's just unyielding and stubborn in in a way that i think could lead to victory. It's hard to argue against head lasso. Because i feel like we kind of elected ted last so to be president. Yes ted lasso of the field. I mean he's like you're variance biden would take a european soccer team. The distance trying to help ravi win this game. Come look i will argue against other picks. I'm not to this is ridiculous. I have some credibility here. I can't argue last diana europe. Second i'm gonna take kermit. The frog from the muppets. He is lovable. I feel like it's like picking the rock who i think it would be. A formidable presidential candidate like. He has a lot of appeal very sentimental value. Also very inspirational. And you know when in trouble he could go into song a.

"Somebody who the theory is that as goes mansion. Show eventually and look. I'm still with that theory. Because she somebody who like in a previous life very aggressively protested the iraq war and was somebody who was considered very to the left. Not in any way that. I disagree with so i think that that is right and as far as what she said the idea that oh we can do this now but then what if they just get elected and then they undo it like please if they're not in charge of the ability to get rid of the filibuster and i mean they're going to do that like in a second first of all and then second of all if we don't actually defend democracy from all the horrible things they're doing to try and counteract what the voters actually want then that makes it only more likely that they'll be in a position of power to do that so it makes no sense to me at all totally. I'm wondering what evidence she has that run. The republicans take power. They're not gonna just do what she saying anyway. Like can we be the first people to it at once. The first people to benefit from this and it also affects the election right like when you're restricting the vote to the extent that they are and there's so much attention paid to voter idealize redistricting and all that and for those of you who listeners. The thing that worries me. The most is the subversion of democracy. It's the results. Come in and you have these sycophants in these electoral offices who no matter. It could be a thirty point margin. They're not going to accept the results and so like we don't fix that. That's the game right there. That's the rules. And mcconnell has said you know if you write the rules you win the game. He has said this this is. They're saying outright demonstrated it and he's winning. So i guess the place to leave. This is well. We're up here like complaining about it and venting maybe channeling you. I don't know i just okay. Yes thank you what i would say is. Don't lose sight of the fact that like it's far from over there is there is a battle to be had and that you know that all of us have a role to play in it and nothing. Nothing's over yeah and quickening on that is. Here's where it stands right now. Is that this. Vote to proceed based on what we could figure out. What the senate. It's not completely dead now. Schumer has Merkley has said that they've now given this bill back to mention. Say now you find ten people on the republican side degree to any change jar voting laws to improve them. And so we'll see what happens. There is. there's a huge group of activists. I think it's up to eighty plus groups now who are investing a ton of money and resources and holding a ton of events around the country to continue to press for change. And that's all we can do is either we get something meaningful done or we keep this front of center over the next two years. So it becomes something that motivates people to overcome these hurdles. So that we can gain margins and actually do something about this and with their ravi through this week and misinformation all right. This is a fun one. So governor disentis of florida signed a well. I might as well just giving them in kansas city. Maybe i'll try something tom brady..

"Together and unite our country. And i'm not supporting that. Because i think it would divide as further. And that's just the mentioned says no that it's done. It's dead senator. Manchin came out last week against the bill Mentally gets bill but also saying that he will not he not weaken or side to filibuster to support the bill Writing in the local paper in west. Virginia he said i believe the partisan voting legislation will destroy the already weakening of democracy. And for that reason i will vote against afford people act. Furthermore i will not vote to weaken or eliminate the filibuster and then he went on to say the fundamental right to vote has itself become. Overtly politicize jason. Does this mean that the bill is dead. H felt that way when i first saw this spread. I've been talking to people in america. Vote and it incident since united. And i don't believe that it's dead a few things to know. There's overwhelming bipartisan support. In west virginia for this seventy nine percent of people polled are for this legislation. west. Virginia i also the argument that partisan legislation on voting rights on civil rights is somehow to be avoided al-qass sort of forget the fact that the fourteenth and fifteenth amendments were passed on partisan vote and i doubt that senator manchin would say that. That was the wrong thing to do When it comes to protecting voter voting rights and election reform. It's important to remember that. Senator manchin who is now saying he'll vote against it that he actually previously sponsored before the people act in the last congress so you know his position has moved around on the so much that i choose to continue to believe that he has persuadable because he has now been persuaded in multiple different directions to date. Even though he's now talking about the bill itself it is still the case that his concerns are about process. It's why he's talking about partisan votes that's why he's talking about and obviously the process should not stand in the way of protecting the freedom to vote so we have to continue to push forward. Finally when he comes to the realization which at some point he will do. Maybe not on this issue but on another but when he comes to the realization that republicans in the senate are not acting in good faith. He's going to have to make a decision about whether he's more committed to an unattainable search for bipartisanship or to the millions of americans who want this and other things to get done and so our job in the meantime is apply as much pressure to the senate to the congress a whole including the senator manchin to make sure that all of the proper political capital and political pressure is in place so that that can actually go the way we want. When that when that comes to fruition it's important for people to remember that the aca died like a thousand times before it actually got passed on a partisan vote said that this is not at all impressed in it and people just need to keep pressing forward. There's always a way we're talking about the senate. They literally make their own rules. Which means those rules can change. And it's our job to apply the necessary pressure so that they including senator mansion feel the need and the opportunity to change those rules to get this done yet. It's also important to let our listeners know that mansion has still said he supports the john lewis voting rights act so there are two different bills here one bill for the people act is much more comprehensive and it has a robust changes to the way we re district to the dark money in our campaign finance system way more aggressive measures to prevent a lot of the types of terrible education. That's making its way. Through states to restrict voting in ways that are transparently racist system for the people at the john. Lewis voting rights act is a much more narrow bill that focuses on voting rights in the strictest sense and largely takes aim at restoring the voting rights. Act that is definitely progress. But it doesn't do a whole lot to stop a partisan gerrymandering. It doesn't do a whole lot to does do anything to get dark money out of our politics and it doesn't do anything really to stop this. Lot of republicans installing partisan officials to important voting which is my number one concern into the state positions or whatever positions in states oversee. Our elections doesn't do anything to stop that. That is my number one concern because my nightmare scenario is that no matter how much we win by. They're going to be stooges in these offices. Who we're going to overturn the results of elections and mess around with the ballot box. I mean they're they're messing with the ballot box. Ready from twenty twenty. They're still auditing quote unquote those results. So i'm concerned that this john lewis voting rights act is not enough but even that he says he was. He's he was talking about it. Like it's a bipartisan piece of legislation from what i can tell he is one republican supporting lisa murkowski nine more people to support this piece of legislation to satisfy his requirement that it passes in regular order. Yeah and i think it's important for people to understand a couple of that as you said. The john lewis voting rights act would prevent a lot of future bad stuff but doesn't go back and fix a lot of bad stuff that's already happened but that's still a good thing and it is a kernel from which we can begin to work so not to mention the fact by the way that the whole first portion of the for the people actors actually written by john lewis as the voter empowerment act. So there's a lot of room to work here with the political messaging to get people like senator mansion in the right place but either way if we want any of this stuff to actually happen we have to continue to apply pressure. If you continue to apply pressure on passing the for the people act. You're also only increasing the chances that you actually get the opportunity to pass the voting rights act again so either way it makes sense to do that and i will sail that say two more things one is that there's a great speech That ralph warnock made on the senate floor is actually his maiden speech on the floor where i think his last line was most important. I stand before you saying that. This issue access to voting and pre-empting politicians efforts to restrict voting is so.
