"Actually have a real return to work. Policy and a lot of them are in very small apartments. We built four bedroom apartments that are about 800 ft². So most Brazilians don't want to work out of their apartments. So we're seeing a real return to work. So we're seeing very low vacancy rates. Also, if for office, we're actually going to start a 600,000 ft² spectrum of office building and fara Lima. Industrial is doing quite well. We're seeing about four years behind on the ecommerce side in Brazil, so we're seeing a lot of demand there. Housing has been a little a little mediocre. The affordable stuff's done well, the higher end stuff has been pretty slow. Hospitality has been very tough and now coming back tremendously. So we actually like investments in the hospitality sector. Last fall logistics and we're also focused on development of office in certain markets like the fair labor. Tom, one last fast one here, given what you just said, is there a big difference between Brazil and one hand in the United States in terms of return to office because it looks like some parts of the United States is not coming back to the office. Your experience? Hugely. I mean, Brazil is like 80% back to work. So it's much different than we're starting to see in U.S. or Europe. So it's just, I think, a cultural thing and Brazilians like to be together. And so we are seeing a really big differentiation between Brazil and the United States. That's fascinating. It's always great to have you with us on these housing questions. Thank you so much to Tom Shapiro. He's GTA partners. He's president and CIO of GTI's partners. And coming up here, we're going to go to the Treasury Department for a reaction to today's jobs numbers from deputy treasury secretary Wally adeyemo.

"And I was making 20 2000, right? You know, as a cadet, my first year out and then when I bought my first House, it was an 800 ft² home. And we lived in it until 2014, with three kids, two dogs, guess one bathroom, and we were never as happy, right? And that's where I am right now where I'm talking to you. Is this we've turned this into basically the plant strong world headquarters. But and I also like you, a door nature, right? And there's nothing I love more than being out, mountain biking, hiking, going to the national parks, that is where I really feel so alive and truly happy to my core. And so everything that you're writing about in the new good life, I've never owned a new car, right? I always buy used cars, drive until they drop dead. I only buy things that I can afford. This house we paid it off as fast as we could. And just where are your priorities? And is it driving around a shiny car you're paying $800 a month? It just makes it seem so wrong. You know, so anyway, this so resonated with me and just the way, you know, diet for a new America resonated with me. And I want people out there that are wondering that are struggling with their finances, with happiness, to take a look at this because to me, it will totally level set you as far as and what you talk about in the book, John, is financial freedom is really, it's the new frugality.

Versus the bank account kind of richness. And again, I always say this. I always need to balance it with. Nobody is.
"800 ft" Discussed on The Atlas Obscura Podcast
"What is that? What is that one? That's a metal bits, which is hard, it's hard to explain what that is. But this one is teeth. And true to its promise, there are all different kinds of teeth related things in there. Like dental molds and actual teeth. My grandfather's wisdom teeth, some gaboon viper fangs. I'm Dylan thores, and this is Atlas obscura. A celebration of the world's strange, incredible, and wondrous places. We've got dull arms. And that's Jessica ork. Jessica has spent the last 30 years or so, collecting odd and forgotten objects. I have a collection of boxes that are too small to hold anything. I collection of animals that have only three legs. For years, Jessica talked her collection into tins and boxes and her dresser drawers. And then she carted it with her from apartment to apartment. But she's finally decided to share it with the world. Today we're going to Las Vegas. To the office of collecting and design. More. After this. First, who are you? My name's Jessica. Am I supposed to say more about myself? I don't know. I mean, I guess I normally say in the filmmaker and artist. Sounds a little pretentious though. My wife Michelle and I first met Jessica oreck. At a mutual friend's party, some 13 years ago. And we all bonded pretty immediately over a shared love of wax anatomical models. But in addition to being a wax anatomical model, enthusiast, Jessica's also a filmmaker and artist, and she's always been a collector. I mean, and I feel very much that being a collector is much more than a hobby. To me, it is a personality trait. I don't know what I was like as a child, though I do know I was a collector from the get go. Tiny rocks, dead cockroaches, you name it, I collected it in my closet. It's not just objects. It's also people and experiences and the way that I organize my life is very much in collections. Even my films, I make films that fit together as a collection. Jessica's films mostly take place outside of the United States. And their documentaries, but they often have this strange poetic whimsical quality to them. And throughout her work, especially in her short films, Jessica draws on her collections. For example, in a short about hissing cockroaches called arthropoda, a live cockroach crawls over Jessica's tiny dinosaur dioramas. These objects become kind of characters in some of your short films. Is that a fair way to portray it? Or how do you think of them in terms of their role in your filmmaking? I don't really think of them as characters so much as just inanimate things given animate life. Quite literally an animation. But yeah, character implies some sort of written backstory, which I'm not so interested in. For me, it's very much about just letting the objects be what they are and appreciating what part of them is visible. I talk to Jessica about her latest project, which isn't a film, but it's something she's been working on putting together for the last couple of years. And in a really serious way since she moved to Las Vegas. It's a culmination of decades of work. It's a museum. It is full of all of the strange ephemeral collections that Jessica has been curating since she was a kid. Can you describe the museum? I'm still working on this one. You know me. I'm so bad at describing things, but I often describe the museum as a collection of lost, a collection of collections of lost, forgotten, discarded, broken, tiny objects. These objects all live somewhere in between being tiny treasures and literal pieces of trash. It's the kind of stuff that never quite makes it out of your junk drawer or the penny box at the flea market. But that's just a little too charming to throw away. My favorite collection of all is dice that you can't play with. They are all old, dice that are their pips are sort of off center or their corners are broken or they're uneven. So they would never pass muster in a casino, for instance, but they all have so much of their charm. A lot of them are handmade or they're just old enough that they're really falling apart. Yeah. A lot of the things in this collection are yours. Is that correct? Yes, they are. I have maybe like one or two things that are on loan from my family. But everything else is mine, things that I've collected, my entire life, and also things that recently people have sent me. And the blue, which has been wonderful. Can you give me a tour of the space? Sure. Okay. All right, so just Jessica is picking up her laptop and carrying my disembodied head out of her studio and into what looks like an amazing place. So I'm gonna start you off from the front door. Okay, cool. I'll get some collecting design. The office of collecting and design, or abbreviated OCD. The name kind of started as a joke. When Jessica told one of her friends about the museum, he poked fun at her for how meticulously she'd sorted out her collections. Jessica made a point of noting that she knows that OCD is a serious condition people deal with. And she's not trying to make light of it. But the name, the office of collecting and design, did feel right. And so it suck. And certainly the museum is well organized and very particular. At the office of collecting and design, you might open a drawer and find it full of loose buttons. Or look at a tin and find it stuffed with more tiny tins like Russian nesting dolls. Little itty bitty glass jars are stuffed with beads and rubber bands and playing pieces. All lined up on tiny little shelves. Everything in its place. I call this my gallery wall. There's a collection of tiny cups and a collection of toy TVs in the collection of Japanese pigments. Seeds and nuts. There's a tiny vintage dollhouse living room. What's that in the upper right that looks like tiny steins? These are liqueur bottles that were from my grandmother, yet Japanese pigments. The room isn't particularly big, and the whole museum is only about 800 ft². But the collection swelled to fill every corner. And all of the objects give it a sort of cozy bohemian maximalist library feel. Everything in its perfect place. And whether the entire space is one great big piece of art, or it's a museum made of many thousands of tiny pieces of art, it's kind of an open question. How many objects do you think are in the museum? Oh, golly. Certainly thousands. Maybe hundreds of thousands, depending on, I mean, do you count every button? Do you count every marble every dice? Every time. Yes. Then..

"So either one if you want to email or check out his website, you can give him a call 469209599. Two. That's 4692095992. Now, let's continue to move further alone in this. We got a lot to get into. This is a great one in and something that I was curious to myself. How long is a preapproval? Good for Chris. I'll give you a formal answer, Matt and then I'll give you kind of the info perfect. Perfect. So the formal answer is 90 days. So when Winter school credit reports Mhm, they're good for four months, 120 days, some lenders were only down it for 90 days. It's kind of the typical Time frame for for a credit report. To be good for is 120. There are other documents, pay stubs and whatnot that don't because them lasted long. They're not updated. You know that we can only have paste. Uh, visitors 60 days old, for example. Yep. The pre approval itself is kind of standard that it's a 90 day expiration. Now This is what I tell my clients and I think most lenders and loan officers kind of do the same. If you come to me five months after we preapprove you, which would be two months after that expiration and you say, Chris I found this house. I want to make an offer on I know my credit reports expired. And the Preapprovals technically expired, But nothing has changed. And I really don't want my credit pulled again. Because if I don't get it might be another couple months before I find another one. And I'll say Okay, a test me that nothing's changed, you know, Send me a screenshot of your credit karma. And it says to me that you've not quit your job. You've not change your credit. You haven't gone out and bought a new boat. That messes with your ability to repay. And if there's say Nope, everything's exactly the same. I'll reissue that letter because I know I know them. I have this relationship with them at this point, and I know that they're probably telling me the truth. They probably didn't Rec there. 800 ft. It's four while shopping for a house for the first time in their life. Now, if they do if they have, which is luckily never happened. I've never had this come back and bite someone. But if they do, they have to be accountable for that. We're going to address it, and they have a bit of an embarrassing phone call to make to their real estate agent. So the formal answers 90 days. The informal answer is, you know that really up to six months or or sometimes a little bit longer, if it's a very simple situation. But just it's a conversation certainly to have with your lender. So you know to expect We're talking with Chris Shoemaker. We got a quick break coming up before we get to that. We've got one more question and something that I feel like people are dealing with right now. I'm a discouraged home shopper. I keep losing at all homes, and I think I may never buy. What am I doing wrong, Chris? A lot of discouraged shoppers out there, not and I feel so badly for them. I feel I feel for their real tough agents to who are working so hard to try to get their offers made. Their offer is accepted. And you know that seller can only accept one offer when there's 40 of them, coming in 39 of those people might get discouraged. So you know they're not doing anything wrong. The one thing that I would suggest is just to reassess your strategy and your team the same thing I said earlier, right Who you work with matters a lot. That team around you. You need a reputable real estate agent That's got experience and is involved and will not only fight for you, but the other side is going to say, Okay, This is a standup person. We know how she or he works, and we're comfortable doing business with them saying with your lender Um, And then, uh, a lot of times. Real tears will suggest writing letters to the cellar. I've seen that happen a lot more lately, and just kind of explain why you want the house what it means to you. You know what Your goal is, because even though that's not financial sellers really can identify with that. So just assess your team and make yourself as personable as possible. To the other side. Guys. We got to take a quick break here on ask the experts hope everybody's enjoying the show today. I know I am. It's a great great information we've been given out. We're talking with Chris Shoemaker of Shoemaker Mortgage team. We got to take a quick break. But when we get back we got a lot to get into on the other side, So I don't want to waste any time.

"App. What a great song for this weekend. Hope you've got some fun. Fourth of July plans made. I'm Jennifer Jones Lee. Here's what we're watching in the K F i 24 hour news room. The ATF's national Response team is on the scene of that massive illegal fireworks explosion that happened when the LAPD bomb squad was trying to destroy some improvised explosive devices in south L. A. The explosion Wednesday night happened after bomb techs loaded those explosives. Into a total containment vehicle. Then moments later, boom, the special containment vehicle was destroyed. Dozens of cars were damaged. At least 17 people were injured, 10 of whom are police officers and L. A city Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez says the city's first fireworks buyback program has seen more than a quarter ton of illegal fireworks being taken off the streets. Under the program, People have been able to turn in their fireworks and get tickets to Dodger Games, passes for universal studios and gift cards to a number of retailers. Rodriguez says The fireworks buyback idea is based on Ella's gun buyback program. Well, speaking of fireworks, Let's talk to the guy who I saw had a quote God bless America. We are back. Jim Souza is the CEO of Pyro spectaculars in Rio Alto. Jim. Good morning to you. Good morning to you. Good morning. I I can only imagine what last year must have been like for you. When you tell me what that was like, Because, do you? I assume get the fireworks way in advance of all the shows, Probably a year in advance. Then all of a sudden, you've got this stockpile that you're ready to send out to all your shows and then covid hits And then what do you do? Well, you're right. It takes a year to plan for these events that we stage on the fourth of July. And Yeah, we were ready. We turned the 2020 in January and February. We're looking at the biggest year ever. And then as everybody knows the pandemic hit in March. We were hoping for baseball, which is kind of our opening, and that's got postponed and eventually cancelled, along with cruise lines and theme parks and outdoor live events. Everything cancelled all the way through the Fourth of July and we were down. 90% in our our shows. It was very devastating. Unbelievable. And what do you What do you do? I mean, this is silly question, but do fireworks expire. How long do they last? Did they dry out? No, it's you know, the old saying. Keep your powder dry, So we have, uh, sophisticated military underground bunkers that they're stored in year round and there's really no expiration, but we turn it over every couple of years anyway. So good. So at least you were able to, I hope than this year used what you had planned for 2020. We have plenty of inventory. We didn't have to buy anything, and we're just really excited. Right now. We're staging over 250 shows from here all the way to New York, Macy's fourth of July spectacular Wow. Is this more or typical of a year for you? No, we're we normally do about 400. So we're about to 50. But we're very thankful and grateful, even have that and that's because everything started late. You know, the vaccine hit that we're very thankful about that really is getting vaccinated and the state opened up on June 15. So when all that was announced, then everybody started coming in and starting to book but normally we're We're booked in January and February, And so this year we started quite late. Otherwise we would be there. But we're very happy and what's looking down the road is even better. Okay, you've got 250 shows that you are planning for across the country. Can you give us a hint? Or, you know, it's just me and you talk and nobody else is listening. Of course, right. That which firework show? Yeah, exactly which fireworks show here in the bay in the in the Southern California area. Do you think is the best one like which one have you supplied? The most foreign? You thought Deng that's going to be a great show. Well, The great show is sort of the granddaddy of all at the Rose Bowl. We call it America Fest, and that's uh over a 90 year tradition going on when the longest traditions of Fourth of July and of live entertainment inside the bowl and huge fireworks, sky concert and fireworks inside the bowl, so that's the most exciting that I would go to Oh, that's awesome. Okay, I'll illegal fireworks have been so much in the news lately, and I think it's so important that people here you have sophisticated underground bunkers that you store your fireworks in. Not these yahoos down the street who just got boxes of them in there. You know, I don't know Garage and then are surprised when the darn things go off. Were so highly regulated and we should be there by that. The CF Department of transportation, then the local state, all different levels and and everything is accounted for, and its sophisticated inventory control And so we have to comply with these, and that's what keeps everything safe. It's unfortunate with all these illegal activities that are going on and they've been going on for years. It's amazing on the fourth of July. Some of them have bigger stuff than we do, and it's unsafe. And I think, does he leave it to the professionals like us? Everybody gather with family and friends and come out and celebrate Independence Day. One of the professional shows. I just have a question for you when it comes to the actual lighting of the fireworks. How does that work? So you set up these elaborate, I guess, um Kind of staging areas of where the fireworks go off. And then how far away are you? How does that work when you want to actually like him? That's a good question. Let's just take for example, we're talking about the Roosevelt. So we're actually launching these devices just out into the golf course. So we have what's called the table a distance where we have to have a safety zone. So if we're firing shells that are literally like a round ball four inches all the way up to a basketball like eight inch. We have to take that the size of it. By 100 FT. And so we would have an 800 ft ratings or 1000 ft radius of a safety zone. So in the center of All that is a are launching site that has he's launching mortars and each one of these mortars has its own shell that goes inside there that has electronic connection that goes back to a computer terminal. We play music, we synchronize that we push the button at all. Just we make it look really easy when in fact, we're really fusing together. The ancient art of fire was with modern technology and blowing things up in the sky, making it A great celebration. That's what I wonder too. How do you get it to sync with the music? I mean, is there somebody there who's just got a really good sense of music that let them offer? Do you guys have these sort of time? How does that work? Well, we talked about your in advance when we started traveling around the world will do that this year. But we go around the world about about this time right after the Fourth of July, uh, mostly through China, looking at new products and then testing him their test him again before they leave. And then we have a really sophisticated program in Southern California in the remote site that we test them one more time, all that information of its launch time. It's burn time. It's colors and so facts they're all categories. Categorize and catalogued into our computer database, which is stored and then us as designers and greater people. We look at that. We use another program, the computer, her program and a simulation of designing it to a music beat and creating different scenes and emotions, Happiness, joy, excitement, fun, and then that gets all programs and downloaded into what we call a field controller, and that is the computer that actually sends out the signals. To a sympathy time code, and it's all perfectly done to the to the to the frame. All right. What's the fourth of July like for Jim Souza? Do you go around to your different shows? Or do you just sit back and go to one show and just watch your work happened in front of you? I make sure everything's all taken care of the trucks around the road. There's no problems. Everybody's happy. And then I will slip out somewhere quietly and watch one of my shows. That's awesome. You deserve it. Congratulations. I'm so glad that you guys are back on your way to normalcy. And I I cannot tell you how much I love a firework show. I don't care if I have to sit in traffic and wait for it and whatever I will do it. I recently went to one of the Angels game. And that was the first time I'd seen fireworks in over a year or so. It literally made me teary..

Not just here in western New York. So hi, Michael McCartney and thank you so much for talking to my listeners here on target. Thank you judge so much for having me. I look forward to sharing what information I can with what their listeners. Could We start out right? Thank you. Could we start out by telling our listeners what your experience in this field is? Sure I'd be happy to so I grew up in law enforcement. As you know, Judge. I spent 22 years working for both the United States Attorney's Office for the Western District in New York. And then for the New York State Attorney General's Office organized Crime Task Force, which is really where I got my foray into cybercrime and cybersecurity and Internet crime. Um I'm credited my partner and I are credited with establishing what became the New York State Internet Crime Bureau, which is still in operation Today. We worked very closely with our law enforcement partners. They police And other local law enforcement agencies to investigate prosecute Internet crime. Um, We also established four digital forensic labs across the state to be able to conduct forensic investigations and the computers that are used to either commit the crime or are victims of crime. Uh, cybercrime? After 9 11. I was assigned to the FBI as a task force officer for about seven years. Working on some of the you know, Nations critical infrastructure. National security took matters. Uh And then I started a company called Digits.

Large companies publicly traded privately held companies that need help in helping defend against detect against and then recover from these types, but these steps of attacks It's just amazing how you were so far sighted. Back so many years ago and to be involved in this field. How? I mean, how did you know? Or how did people know that this was going to be the future threat to the world? I give a lot of credit to our old friend Dennis Vacco. Back in the day when he was the U. S attorney and then the New York State attorney general. He had the foresight he he can look 800 ft down the road and see That Internet crime and technology crime was going to be a big deal, and he he put some resources into our unit that the state was established and became what it was.

And was fortunate enough to be you know, supported by a you know a statewide law enforcement ages, Um, to continue to grow our skill set, but also to learn a lot about the technology underneath the hood. That kind of the criminals used the perpetrate these crimes and also ways to help figure out how to detect them and defend against them. Do you know what I was thinking? This was even before C s. I was on the air problem, right? They probably learned from you, Uh, maybe so Let's let's Kind of talk about how this has evolved from the time when you started working on cybersecurity issues until now, How is this? How is it exploded? So I guess how and why has it exploded So Um, yeah, that's a great question, Judge. Um I think really, It's so like, if you want to start any other business, like when I started my business, uh, 15 years ago. Right.

"Great way to learn more about oil and gas, And also we're projecting through the top of the hour. We can project for you how much less you'll pay for this year's taxes as a result of getting into an oil and gas program, But we are kind of running out of time. So grab one of these to open lines we have right now. 833. 645 45 100, the number 8336454500 here at smart oil and gas. This week in oil and gas history. We take you to just outside Beaumont, Texas. In the early 19 hundreds. One of the biggest oil discoveries in the USA has been made at Spindletop. And there is a lot of excitement about this area because there's a lot of oil in the ground. Which brings us to the topic of the day, which is the beginning of the Texas company or as it's better known, Mark Texaco tell us more. Well, you know what, Um, Texaco original company was that Texas company so the Texas company or Texas company is from about 19. Oh, one. Some businessmen got together after Spindletop and they decided to pull their money together. Start a company and then look for places to find like a major office to other areas around Spindletop. Yeah, right. OK, so there's Texas company. They started speculating and looking for places to drill. And they found a driller and Joseph Buckskin, Joe Cullinan and Arnold shot. They arrested the Beaumont area after Spindletop. In the Texas company settled in on an area called sour like and they decided because there's sulphur Springs there, and it also had natural gas bubbling up with the song. People would go there to heal from diseases. 1900 people went to Galveston, They went to sour leg to swim in the Sulphur Springs. Healing properties. Yeah. Turns out it did heal and heal poverty. Yes, and he'll popper like it healed a lack heal the lack of cash. So I'll tell you what 19 Oh, 1 to 19. Oh, three. They must. Those times must have really start if you had if your vacation was leaving Houston and going to sour Lake, which is basically a swamp. You know, between Houston and Beaumont that smells and that smells like sulfur, like rotten eggs. Okay, so anyway, they so they speculated that if there's if there's natural gas coming up with the suffer, maybe that there's oil underneath it so that the Texas company Took all their money and bet on some leases. And then they had these buckskin Joe go out there and drill a well. They drilled two wells, and they were both had mechanical problems and sand and all kinds of things. They finally found The sulphur springs at about 800 ft. And then when they got below 1000 ft. They ran into multiple oil sands, and they brought the well on at 5000 barrels a day. Texaco eventually bought Getty all and some other big companies, and it became a big integrated oil company, But they started but it started with their find their sour lake. So what else do we learn from from Buckskin, Joe and Arnold and the rest of these early Early oilman, a Texaco. Anything else, boss? You know the maintain years. What we always preach on the show is exactly what they did. So these guys put some money together. There was a tremendous fine At Spindletop, So they were like, Well, if there's a well that that will flow 100,000 barrels a day, Let's go drill some wells close to there on a good geologic feature, and maybe we'll find not just an average well. Barn burner and sure enough, it took him three tries that to dry holes, and on the third one. They had a welcome and 5000 barrels a day, and they were out of money when they did it and that well And then the business they got off of it became eventually Texaco, a multi billion dollar conglomerate in oil production, refining, chemicals, all different kinds of things, And there's probably hundreds of companies that ran out of money exploring, and but all it takes is one good well. Good stuff, Mark and a special Thanks today to the American oil and Gas Historical Society, outstanding website. We get a lot of our history content from their website again.

It wasn't 18 people's 23 people and I apologize for that, And it was a horrible tragedy and my heart goes out to those family members. Let me tell you something. Castro is 150% correct. This is disgusting. Now, if you disagree with the Biden administration's policies when it comes to border security, no problem. Let's have that conversation. If you don't like what the former president did or the president before, Fine, let's talk about policy and let's have a conversation. How can we make this country safer? How can we make sure that's you know, Illegals are not getting into this country. I have no problem with that. It's a very reasonable conversation to have But Lara Trump is a moron. Okay, that comes from the Trump playbook. Demonizing illegals and saying Take matters into your own hands. Get your guns. I mean, ladies and gentlemen. Have to ask you all this question as I open up the phone lines now. Is there anyone out there? That is okay with large Trump's comments. Not only is she saying get guns and be ready, but she's saying Take matters into your own hands. So I asked the people listening right now. Are you okay with these comments, or do you agree with me that these comments were over the line? Blatantly inappropriate and incite violence, the number to call if you'd like to be a part of this conversation 7022575396 again that number If you want to be a part of the show, that is 2575396. There are some people, uh, celebrities and politicians that are making their remarks in regards to Trump. Here's what they had to say. Rosanna Arquette's at Fox News Entertainment is allowing terrorists Lara Trump to encourage murder. Fred Wellman said. Incitement to violence, Shannon Watts said. I guess they better arm up and get guns and be ready and maybe they're going to have to start taking matters into their own hands. Large Trump suggesting Americans shoot Mexicans who tried to cross the border, Joyce Oates said terror that illegal persons will steal their heavily encrusted makeup, youthful hair. And, uh and fragrances. Another man, David Weissman actually commented, How are these people able to incite threats? This is not free speech. Lord Trump should be held accountable before some idiot falls through with her advice. I agree with that, but so should Maxine waters for the things that that, she said about making People in the Trump administration feel uncomfortable when you see them in public, making them feel like they're not welcome Kamala Harris, saying that after knowing that a lot of these BLM protests evolved into riots that she hopes that they don't stop that, that they they should continue to take it to the streets. In both situations. It's wrong. I completely agree with his Bryant in the last since since March. There have been 370 different incidences or someone has crossed the border with 10 or 12 people in a vehicle and got into a high speed chase with police. And yesterday one of those one of those people that did that literally crashed into a house in McAllen, Texas. That happened yesterday. So, yeah, you should arm yourself if you live on the border, but you should not take things into your own hands unless you absolutely have to. The first. The first line of defense under those circumstances should always be either border Patrol or the police. But you should not be. She should not be pushing vigilante justice and that's what she's doing, and I have a huge issue with that, But I have a huge issue with anyone from any side doing that. Okay, So let me be very clear on this. There is no comparison to what Maxine Waters said. And there is no comparison to what Kamala Harris said, uh, both inside. Okay, so if I could just finish my statement, I'll start over. There is no comparison to what Kamala Harris said. And what Maxine Water said as compared to what Lara Trump said about arming yourself with guns and taking matters in your own hands. I just want to be very clear on that. But the phone lines are open at 7022575396. Let's start off with Bob. Bob is first up in the Vegas Take. What's up? Hey, what's up, Bob? Good morning. Um you know when I read it It sounded lousy but listening to her, say it. It's she's almost saying it was hateful tone, like, right. Better be ready to shoot people. Now. I lived okay in McAllen and I lived in Brownsville and I lived in Holland Gin and people down there, back back in from 8 to 12. Um oh, 8 to 12. They they would say that every day they have people walking through the yard and they give them water, right? Maybe give him a snack or something like that. Well, Arup, it's saying Is that you better just start shooting people if they come on your land, right, right. That's what she's saying that she is. You don't know you can you can you can you can You can. You can decide what she's referring, but she you can also say that she's inferring that if you if you live on the border and someone breaks into your home, you should be ready. He didn't say that, you know, but but she also but but she also didn't say the other thing, Brian. She didn't say either. Such 80 can ask you a question, Bob. Hang on the line. So, Bob, hold on, seriously serious. If I'm if I'm living on the border, and someone breaks into my home, and I didn't say that, and I don't have a gun, and I don't have a weapon, I feel very capable. Can I jump in? If I have a weapon? I am absolutely under those circumstances going to take things into my own. Let me respond circumstances now, But if someone's walking on my land that I know, JD. Okay, so first of all J D No idiot in this country should ever have to have somebody say, shoot somebody if they invade your home that is given. Everybody knows that by the and number two that is absolutely not with large, Trump said. Let me be very clear and Bob. I think you'll agree with me on this. If Laura Trump said, If somebody invades your home, you have a right to arm yourself and shoot somebody. We wouldn't be talking about it today because she would be right with that. That's not what she said, Bob, I'll give you the last word. Then I got to get to some other callers, my friend. Okay, So one case where two people when Onto an orange grove and the older shot them.

And I was, you know, he's only he was six of the time just turned seven. He's been on the demon before, but it's still a big deal. You know when you're seven, and you're going on a four loop roller coaster, the demons the one that's been around forever.

I know you didn't take mushrooms when we were younger. We did. But anyway, you you find him in the yard? Yeah. Yeah. When you were on the demon, we're on the demon right now. Hold on. Wait.

How do you know He wasn't put stuff in your potatoes? After a while, So those who aren't in in and the Great America lingo The demon's been around forever. It Zagat the big drop in the beginning not so big anymore because compared to the other Roller coasters. Gotta drop two loops right in the media, then a little rest the area on Then you do two corkscrews. And then you head for home. It's a really short ride. Maybe 45 seconds a minute. Long is it for like it? Zamora Kid Roller coaster? Well, I mean, back in the day I was, you know, scared, but The way rollercoasters have evolved. It is not not not big by any means anymore, but the first stomach dropping. We send the back. We're gonna ride the demon. We're gonna ride the detail. You do. Why? Why is it Because I would think if you're sitting in the back and someone pukes you're wearing it. Um, I maybe I would think, tactically, you'd want to be in the front that cuts down the puke. Quotes. You know, I'm a roller coaster nerve if you if you ride the back, you feel more. It feels faster, especially down the initial drop because you're being pulled.

You're in adrenaline junkie. I love it And then and then it goes up. So instead of like to the moon, most roller coasters that go down, it shoots you out, and then it goes up like an incline. I believe it's 400 ft in the air. I don't know I don't have the highest in the world called Google. This top thrill dragster. And so when the Cubs won the world Syriza's I believe Great. America had a bet with cedar Point, and they had to rename the coaster for like a week, and they called it top thrill cub stir Where they had to put up side 800. FT goes up up the hill, 400 ft. Any trick down and it twists on top, and then it goes straight down and then shoots him. Listen, you're gonna have to pack an adult diaper for me for that..
