"I spoke with Andrew Yang earlier this week, obviously he goes way back, founded venture for America, ran for president, has a lot of thoughts about the economy. And he thinks there's a long way long way down to go. Take a listen to what he had to say. We have a ways to go on the downslope. I certainly think that folks should try and keep some powder dry, make sure that you have enough cash to make it through for a little bit longer than you might hope. So he's saying to keep powder dry for a longer period of time, you know, how much farther how much farther down do you think this slope goes and how do you think these seeds are going to negotiate, you know, not knowing how long this is going to last. Yeah, I mean, as far as we do see a lag in data from what we see, what we're expecting in the narrative. And so even from right now, I would expect deal counts to continue to slide and deal value, slide a little bit more for a few more quarters before it catches up to what we're talking about right now in the beginning of Q four. As far as keeping dry powder, I think again, a lot of the that unlocking or getting that dry powder back into the market is going to have a lot to do with what goes on in the public markets. LPs are very over balanced right now. They've been putting a lot more money to private equity and venture capital over the past few years. Now, the public portfolio is very much lower than they were last year. I think they're looking at their VC allocation. It has a little overweight. And so having those investors continue to hold on to dry powder, not call it down from LPs. I think it's going to be very important until we again see a little bit more certainty in the market. See interest rates interest rates stop rising and inflation kind of start to lower and kind of get to a sense of balance throughout the entire market. All right, Cal Stanford lead VC analysts at pitch book thanks so much for sharing your thoughts here. Appreciate it. Coming up. What do

Um, he told reporters Quote. I am the face of the new Democratic Party. He's leading in the polling there right now. Former police officer Uh he was the president of the New York City borough of Brooklyn and former captain in the New York City Police Department. And in the closing weeks of the mayoral campaign, the primary at least he said that curbing the increase of crime and gun violence in the city would be his top priority. And he and he is making his issuing this warning to the very left leaning part of the party. He is considered a moderate. Yeah, that game's over. He said, Uh, this I'm the new face. He's more moderate. Well, the crime is off the charts charts off the charts, and, um, Andrew Yang, I mean, he's totally out of it. I mean, he came in, like fifth or something.

"Do you really think that taking someone who's been an embedded in that system is going to be safer or risk eared depending upon what you think the needs of this time aren't Like i would suggest that. Having someone with varied experiences who's proven inability to build relationships with for example. The president the vice president the secretary of transportation the senate majority leader who can activate resources for new york city. That is a safer bet on me. Ticking someone who's been rattling around these systems that have been coming through cross point point taken for sure. I think that appeals to a lot of people but at the same time. You're asking people to let you manage city government and show talk about your growth. As a manager. As leader there been a number of stories especially during a presidential campaign Both both in your prior entrepreneurial activities end in the campaign about misogynistic culture in these organizations about challenges the sort of aging thing scale up. Are those things you want to Assuage people are no longer issues. Are you taking some kind of different approach in your mail campaign to make sure that those things don't happen of us are grown change on that front and ensuring that that past Issues on then. I'm very proud of the work. We've done In each of my organizations elevating people of every background including amazing women leaders and there are incredible women who worked on my presidential who are now helping to leave my merrill camping and so really the question is how are we going to get the city heading in a better direction. And i'm someone who's going to get the most talented dedicated people working in city hall end in these agencies that Frankly in my mind could use people with buried deep government experience and very much lawn to surround myself with folks who've been working in these environments because these are very complex organizations and you folks who know how to to move bureaucracies in a particular direction but we also need to enlist people Who have Industry experience who might be from outside new york city And i'm the kind of person that just wants the best people around me and wants to create a culture where they can do their best work. They're not going to be fearful. Frankly negative press cycle or that. Their mayor is going to like you know. Throw them under the bus. It like you know. Someone's mad about something. I'm going to be there heat. Shield I'm going to stand up front and say hey if you have any like you know anyone want to Ask questions you can ask me. And then if there's credits begin like it can go to my team. That's kind environment. We're going to need if we're going to get the best people involved in.

"It's not something that you really try to scale to that larger degree. All i would love to scale. I think most others We'd be giving everyone a thousand bucks a month but but we don't have that capacity. Now i mean i but the city does not have that capacity and so we have to be more targeted and tactical I also want to return to a question or a statement you had been. I am not against higher taxes. In in your city in there are clearly people that have been incredibly successful that can afford to pay more their fair share In some of the things. I'm proposing will likely end up being revenue-generating ineffectively. Higher taxes on folks can afford them But my my goal is to start with a billion dollar commitments will an extreme poverty in your city. I think we can grow from there. And i think we can do do so in a way. That's going to help solve several problems at once. So one of my goals is to help. Small businesses recover And i would like for this buying power that we're going to put into the hands of new yorkers who are struggling to go to locally owned small businesses rather than amazon or you know big company x. that that doesn't Have as much value flow directly to new york families and communities But we we're committing a billion dollars a year. I'd love to see it grow to grow. You would need philanthropic funding as you said or where it. How does it grow. I think the topic funding be one source One thing that. I'm very excited about is that it looks like we have at least a bit of a bridge operationally where this latest relief. Bill is going to include six billion dollars for new york city. Which should pledge plugger budget hole or at least a year then i think an infrastructure bill follow But in order to grow you'd be looking at a combination of philanthropic sources and city funding and what kind of philanthropic sources commissioning..

"You know there's conversation that police have pulled back too much because they resent some of the political decisions at inmates on the laws. that have been passed. Do you believe that. Do you think there's room for in some ways more aggressive police force but with some of its culture changes you've previously mentioned so again you have to do multiple things at once the civil rights abuses knee. Nypd are real and you can see that in the hundreds of millions of dollars. That city spends settling lawsuits against abusive police. Officers every year So it's not like an isolated current it actually is a systemic problem But at the same time police needs. I feel like they can do their jobs And do them actively with searing for their career. Any time to get out of their police car because of like a negative social media or something along those lines. And i agree with you that right now. The nypd relationship with the current mayor is not Facilitating that kind of attitude. When i've spoken to folks who are close to the situation they say that the nypd is not leasing as actively as they have At other points in time. And that's something that hopefully a new mayor can change. Come back to your run for president leading into your run for mayor Why do you think when you point to in terms of wire able to sort of build a movement On your presidential ryan and now you have you know these very strong approval ratings very strong likeability ratings and leading the early polls in miro race which. I'm wondering what you what you attribute that to that you think it's sort of a broader name recognition from your from your presidential campaign. But i think about you. People responded to you so positively heading. Boil that down. That's a great question. Ben i would like that one. Yes because genuinely i. It's interesting per per meter of like don. I have not been a public figure for that long. And i think people sensitive binding for them When i ran for president. I advocated giving everyone two thousand dollars a month which i've always the right move and people initially frankly Mocked bat proposal.

"And then Andrew Yang, who is a bit of a bit of a wild card, and also Eric Adams, who is the Brooklyn borough president, former police officer but also a strong advocate of policing reform. So I think you've got a really broad spectrum of pretty qualified candidates. I think that's one thing that really comes through in these interviews that Howard Wolfson did where the candidates really did get a chance. To speak at length. All of them have a vision of the city, and all of them, you know, have have a case to make. We should know. Michael R. Bloomberg is the founder, majority owner of Bloomberg LP, the parent company of Bloomberg Radio. Does any candidate in particular have a clear plan for the economic recovery of the city? I think one would be hard pressed to sort of say that one has a super clear economic plan. All are struggling with the balance of equality and taxation and the covert recovery. All seemed to understand that the city works best when it is broad and dynamic and a magnet for People from other parts of the country in the world to come and make their way here, But none have a super clear budget or economic plan that would be easy to detail. His covert the dominant issue. Does that sort of overshadow everything else. Think covered really run through everything on this campaign, and I think you could argue to June that it's really shaped it to this point. You know, the campaign has been largely on zoom. There have been a lot of candidate forum on them. And in a way that gives you great access is a voter because you can log on and really watches much as you would like. What's been missing his sort of the traditional New York on the HUS teens walking a parade eat a hot dog kind of campaign, though that's probably about the start taking place. As you know. More and more people get vaccinated is rates go down As the sun comes out, I I imagine it will begin to look more and more like a traditional New York campaign for the Halloween Month and a half, and that's the other really interesting thing about this election. In addition to being ranked towards voting, it's really compressed. The Democratic primary is June 22nd. Given the makeup of the city, the Democrat is likely to be the winner of the Democratic primary is likely to be the next mayor. So there's a lot of work to be done. In a really short period of time. Policing has become a national issue. In light of the recent shootings. How much is policing being talked about and new ideas for policing? You know, That is a great question. It's certainly being talked about in the context of everything that has happened in the last year. It's starting to become discussed. Two in the context of crime going up in New York and There are different plans. I think one thing that runs through all of the candidates is a desire to find ways to send people other than police officers to situations where police officer might not be required. If there is a mental health issue if there are other things that could maybe be diffused without an officer, on the other hand, All of them Talk about looking for ways to make sure the city is safe because I think all recognized that New York can't function. You can't Braun new people here if people are feeling consistently imperil So what do the polls show? Who's ahead? Well, Andrian is ahead, followed by Eric Adams and then Scott Stringer, who is the city controller and Maya Wiley after that, and it has ruffled Glebe in then sort of a line up for the last few months with Captain Garcia and Shaun Donovan hanging in there, too. And yet, you know, the thing to keep in mind is that you know, because it is ranked choice Voting. You have to get over 50% toe win. Nobody is close to being over 50%, including Andrew Yang so The race is open, but it's been fairly static till now could change..

Someone has operates search, You know, maybe one of the other candidates who knows someone Someone all of a sudden. Got involved here. Listen, this is the politics is dirty. What? What can I tell you this, But this thing this happened 20 years ago where she'd been for 20 years. Don't know when, but that's not really the progressive viewpoint. All women have to be believed. You can't minimize it. Just cause it was 20 years ago when you can't minimize these charges. Are you just gonna poo poo them? Oh, come on. It was a long time ago. Who cares? No. Is that your attitude towards once again? That's not what I'm saying. But this man has been in the public eye for the last 20 years where she been, That's all I'm asking. You don't think that's a fair question. Forget if it's progressive concern. I don't care what point of view it is. I'm just saying in general, let me bring in my favorite female on the show. Actually the only female in the show. Natalie, doesn't it, doesn't it? Is there a statue of illustrations thing? Natalie, this is the least raise your curiosity where she's been for the last 20 years. Is that not a valid question? Absolutely. Thank you. No doubt about that. Why should we believe her? Does she have the right to be will know we should Least listen to her first. You know, I can't say you should believe her if we've never heard or But until we hear what she says you should wait. See what she says, and then make judgment. It's really a hard thing to say Somebody story isn't true if you have no evidence, but I agree. That it's difficult to just assume they're telling the truth. So Since you can't go back 20 years and we probably can't find anybody who was in the room. And you have to start doing you know what about their character of they've done this to anybody else? It's super different candidate. Well, if I were there any text messages If I was that was that the news conference date with this young lady, which I'm not. I mean, I think it's a valid question. Where have you been the last two decades? A Stringer's been in the public eye. It's not like he's disappeared. He's the controller. What? Why? Oh, now he's running for mayor a couple of weeks before the primary, this story comes out. I'm just I'm just curious. Why just very curious about the timing, that's all. Well, he's certainly up his profile by running for mayor here now, Len, You're Democrat. If you were voting in the city, and you're not who would you be supporting right now in the territorial Primary. You know, we'll be Andrew Young because he followed me on Twitter. He said.

"York City mayoral candidate Andrew Yang plans to campaign virtually now because he's tested positive for the coronavirus. Yang says he's experiencing mild symptoms, but otherwise he feels okay. He was in self quarantine last month after an aide tested positive for the virus. The government will start distributing Corona virus vaccination kids directly to pharmacies on February 11th. The White House coronavirus response coordinator says the first phase will be limited to 6500 pharmacies because of limited vaccine supplies Pharmacy program will expand access in neighborhoods across the country. She can make an appointment and get your shot conveniently and quickly, maybe see those White House correspondent Karen Travers is with us this morning, Karen. Good morning. Good morning. Tell us a bit more about this. You know, I think you heard there from Jeff Dye in the White House coordinator for covert 19. The goal here is to get back teams out to areas that they they're harder to reach to ensure that there is an equitable distribution. That's where the focus will be for these one million vaccine doses that are going out the 6500 pharmacies. They were very clear yesterday that this is limited. I think there was a very sober reality that Yes, they're trying to ramp up the vaccine supply and distribution. But right now, according to science due to the current supply constraints, this pharmacy plan is still quite limited 6500 pharmacies out of the 40,000 nationwide. If you're in the big city If you're in an area where you've got many options for vaccines, sites, this probably not going to apply to you. They're trying to get this out to places where they don't have one or many vaccines sites again to that equitable distribution. So if you're looking for a vaccine has always check with your state local health department to see if you're eligible and then check your local pharmacy to see if it's participating. Here in the country's about to witness another impeachment trial starting next week, and I understand President Biden had a few comments in a new interview with People magazine. He did. He sat down with the magazine and reiterated his view that the trial has to happen. There have been some calls that the president should call off Senate Democrats were moving ahead with this was part of his pledge to bring the country together that the promise on the campaign trail of healing nation and he said, you know, you have to have the trial, the House voted to impeach the president, and it would be a mockery of the system if there were no trial. He also said that it's important that there be certain basic standards that he said that people Able to see what happened and make their own judgments. The president Biden, then added that he's not looking for any retribution. He's not necessarily weighing in on what he wants the Senate to do in that final vote just that the Senate trial has to happen. What do we stand on progress for the covert relief packages the White House holding its ground on its demands? Yeah, they are right now. I mean, $1.9 trillion proposal, the president laid out there was that counter offer from Republicans of 618 billion today, The president will sit down with Senate Democrats in the Oval Office, and we'll also do a phone conversation with House Democrats. This comes after he met with the Republicans on Monday night at the White House now is working his own party and, you know, I think the sense is there with him on. They're pushing for the priorities that are included in the 1.9 proposals. But the question I think is going to be Where's the little room to start negotiations? How much could you bring that down in order to see if Republicans in the Senate come up? You know this is gonna be a fast moving process. They're all talking about the urgency of the crisis and they need to get something done. But we're so in the beginning of this process. Thanks for the UPDATES.

So far, Candidates for mayor have been noticeably civil to each other. But on Sunday that tone started to change. W In my sees Elizabeth Kim reports, the event marked the first opportunity candidates had to ask each other questions. Maya Wiley chose to push Andrew Yang on reports that his campaign has a bullying culture and requires volunteers to sign confidentiality agreements. And as a civil rights lawyer. I was shocked to hear You have a non disclosure agreement that sounds very Trumpian. It was the feistiest exchange of the evening. Yang said that his campaign was no longer using such agreements. We discontinue them just clarify for folks that we have absolutely nothing to hide. Mostly the other candidates stuck to policy issues like policing, affordable housing. And the economy. Manhattan District attorney Cy Vance is unlikely to seek re election this year. Whatever he decides, W.

"Mayoral candidate Andrew Yang that is coming up at 10 o'clock here on W N. Y C. Thistles Pull Henry with news our life from the BBC in London. Big priority among environmentalists, aiming to slow global warming has bean planting more trees. But experts from the Royal Botanical Gardens in queue in London, a warning that planting the wrong tree in the wrong place. Can actually do more harm than good. Scientists have proposed a set of golden rules as they call them tree planting, which they say should be taken on board by all nations this decade. Hate. Hardwick is co lead author on the Conservation Partnership coordinator at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew. So what we're talking about here is being guided by nature to try and restore the forest with a mix of species, which is similar to what would have been found in the natural forest. So I think people imagine, though. When you hear about reforestation. That's exactly what's happening is that the forest is being restored much along the same lines is how it was before. But in reality that often isn't the case. And so one of the studies we sight in our paper. Shows that only about a third of the global commitments to reforestation are restoring the natural forest, and two thirds of them are commercial monoculture plantations. And aka forestry. So we're not saying that there's no place for plantations in Agra forestry, but we'd really like to tip the balance more towards restoring trees that are typical of the natural ecosystem. But can it really be true that the wrong species of tree in the wrong place is worse than no tree at all? Yes, well, it can I mean in in a couple of different ways, So first of all, Planting trees in the wrong place means planting trees where they don't naturally occur. So we're very strongly advising against planting trees on Pete Lens and grasslands and savannahs places where, naturally there wouldn't be much tree cover and they already evolved. Their own unique biodiversity and planting trees on them will just help to wipe that out. It is important to be careful of introducing species from a completely different ecosystem on there's lots of examples around the world where this has happened. I really famous one is South Africa, which was planted with A lot of occasions be. She's back in the 19th and 20th century on, it's had a devastating impact on their local habitats. They're so their native Heath Island, which is called Fain boss. Have a tent is being almost wiped out in areas by this dense canopy of occasions. That's growing where the faint boss should be. It sounds as if local knowledge is crucially important here. So therefore local people, too. Absolutely. So This is one of our most important rules, and it's right up there at the top that local people should always be put front and center of any restoration project or reforestation project because without their absolute support involvement right from the beginning. Is not going to be any long term success in the Paul is very famous for involving its communities in forest management, and we give another example from Tanzania about the nattily system. Where again, Avery successfully involved local people in the whole planning process. Suppose a tree making money doesn't harm things, either. As long as it's sustainable Now, that's absolutely right. So for the project to be successful in the long term, the local people have to support it on and If they can get a sustainable income from the forest. Then, of course, they're more likely to support it. That was Kate Hardwick from Kew Gardens in London..

"Department did ask for Navalny's release. Americans listening to Fox News But in glace or criminal numeral does but a rich belt is in Esto OS America. Ah, Laura. All right, New York City Welcome back. I am rich Valdas Valdas with an S. And we are here A talk radio 77 w A B c our telephone numbers 1 808 48 92 20 to 808 for a w A B C. And last week when we were together, we spoke about Andrew Yang and something that's been known as both. They got gate. Now the bodega gate that Andrew Gang was caught up in was of course, he went into a kind of like a gourmet deli and did a lot of his instagram lie. Facebook library did have live video and he talks about the pickles and this and that, and he buys us some sort of Bar and a banana and a green tea or something like that. And, you know he's talking about the breakfast of champions. And I'm thinking you probably couldn't even buy those things in a real ball that got anywhere here in the city because, of course, he was in a gourmet eatery, but all that being said I'm looking at an article in the low down news from the Lower East side, and it's his following Bodega Gate. Andrew Yang heads for the Lower East Side. Did you catch Yang on the Lower East side last week, touring the Essex Street market, checking in at the pickle guys or hanging out at Frank's bike shop on Grand Street, while the New Yorker dubbed it part of a social media authenticity blitz after the newly announced Merrill candidate was stung by both the guard gate That's what they're calling it. That's so silly. I love it. The Yang did not grow up in the city but has lived there for 25 years or lives here for 25 years. He's now fending off criticism for referring to a place called Seven Brothers Famous Deli in Hell's Kitchen. That's where he claims to live. As a boy, they got failing to vote in most mayoral elections and relocating his home to the Hudson Valley during the pandemic. Now, of course in the article, says New York City's politics are a tough game. But as the Gotham is pointed out, there's also a question of fairness in the criticism of Yang. It's a real New Yorker and it goes on and on and on. You should check it out if you want to, but the point was There's this question of authenticity when it comes to, including Yang, as in New Yorker. And of course, we've got a lot of people here in our in our orbit courteously with John Catsimatidis that are, you know, talking about potential run for mayor and these are guys that I think would make it world of difference and really drastically improve the quality of life here in the city. But then you have guys a gang that air coming in saying I'll listen. Vote for me because, Hey, I'll go into Ah Gourmet luxury deli and call it a bodega and b. I'll send you 1000 bucks a month You could stay home. This isn't how we're going to improve New York City. It's not how we're going to improve America excluding people. Are including people or this and that all of these, these approaches that we have two things that are not based on the Constitution are based on reality not based on common sense. They don't help. They just don't help these guys I think are adding fuel to the fire. When I say these guys are talking about Yang, I'm talking about Biden. In many ways, you do need a cooler head like perhaps Tulsi Gabbert, who? Just trying to bring things back saying, you know, forget what Brennan had to say. Forget what ship is saying. We have to focus on things that matter, things that are real and things that work for the city. Now before we get into the next one, I just want to say it's to me. It's important that We don't go too crazy trying to change things up. It's part of the reason I'm reticent Tolo Andrew Yangs. Philosophy or campaign premise. Well because We've lived life where It's worked for the most part, and you know something's broke. You can fix it. But if it ain't broke, don't fix it right. That's the old saying. Now, Joe Biden. He's catching some heat now or editorial in The Wall Street Journal. Where He's Under fire, or at least getting critiqued. Saying that from his first day and one of the executive orders, one of the 17 executive orders that he signed Is now putting an end. Two girls sports And this is an interesting point. This is a piece by Abigail Schreier. Mid inauguration day talks, Bubba blogged glass ceilings this and that There's an executive order on preventing in combating discrimination on the basis of gender, identity or sexual orientation. On day one, Mr Biden placed all girls sports and women's safe spaces in the cross hairs of the administrative state. The order declares quote. Children should be able to learn without worrying about whether they will be denied access to the restroom, the locker room or school sports ellipsis. All persons should receive equal treatment under the law, no matter how their gender identity or sexual orientation. No matter Excuse me, their bubble, blah, blah, blah, blah and quote. So now the order of reports to direct the administrative agencies to begin promulgating relationships and relations that would enforce the Supreme Court's 2020 decision in Bostock versus Clayton County. And it does go much further. I don't want to get into the weeds on this, but this is the criticism that he's receiving. From Miss Blade. Now she's On the forefront of fighting for these issues, Linda Blade Track and Field coach, an Olympic track and field coach, she says, the leadership skills and all the benefits society gets from letting girls have their protected category. So that competition can be fair for all the advances of women's rights that's going to be diminished. Miss Blade notes that the parents of teen girls are generally uninterested in watching their daughter's demoralized by the blatant unfairness of a rigged competition. That's heavy duty. So I want to know what you think about this. Is it right to say that girls can no longer have their own sports and that if a boy Who believes that he is a girl. Can now compete. In girls sports. Now I happen to have two daughters and neither there was. You know, they were competitive cheerleaders, none of them wherever you know, in basketball or anything like that, But I think to myself wow. If a 15 year old boy wanted to compete against my 15 year old girl and I've seen the women. I have a nephew and he grew a lot. You start working out the muscle that he put on the agility that he possesses. To me. It seems like an unfair advantage. Biological unfair advantage. So my thought is should that happen? I don't know. You tell me 1 808 48 w A B c 108 489222 taking your calls on that as well as everything that we've discussed all night long. Let's go to Jerry in Passaic, New Jersey. Jerry, what's up, My brother? You're wrong with ridge of all this. Well, what they ought to do is get them out of it. If they want, let them start. A third group called Bisexual Transsexual with them have their own group. Not a bad idea. The fairest thing Yeah. Makes sense to me. That makes sense. I mean, it's been saying because, Jerry, do you compete in the women's sports? Hell, No. I should let them have the wrong thing. Don't let them compete against women If they want. Let them set up another group. Not boys, not girls, but people that don't know what they have carry on. 100% right. That's the best way the other point I wanted to make He's talking about. Something about basically doing something with the You know the injections. How can you have that If you're allowing all these illegals to run across the border That doesn't make any sense. You know that one audio that I heard I heard it was a video I saw, but I clipped the audio and I played it in my podcast last week, which, by the way, this is America where rich failed as you can download that anywhere You like. And Jerry that audio, the guy he speaks great English. By the way, he sounds Filipino, but he says he's Honduran. He's coming from Honduras. And he says Joe Biden promised us 100 days and this and that and whatever that we he's going to take care of us. So I mean, it seems like Joe is cutting deals with his friends in Honduras. Well, it seems like he's saying Americans don't count on the only ones account now with the people that are better than we are. The people that are basically breaking the law makes absolutely no sense unless your room or on or You want to do you want to destroy the country? Yeah. You're right. All right. Let's go. Tonto. Boris in Forest Hills. Thank you, Jerry for your call. I appreciate that. George. Boris. What's on your mind? Hi. Hi. I have a question for each and video lady in Congress across your cocktails, and she suggested that everyone From Trump Cabinet should be fired. And it's not enough should not be hired anyway, including private companies..

"I n si dot com slash upgrade Now we're talking about this article here from the psychiatrist. Says that the real problem facing America today is not. I mean, covered 19 may or may not be a problem. This author is certainly suggesting that it's probably not But the real problem is delusional Mess mass delusional psychosis or delusional mass psychosis. I don't know exactly how they afraid, step it. It's the same kind of delusion that drives religious fanatics who would kill their own daughters because she dared to quote, dishonor her family. Well, um, that's you know, we're talking about rape scenarios and these sorts of things. Well, that always I mean, just maybe. Well, she would this honor her family, presumably by losing her virginity outside of marriage, But this is going on throughout, you know. Human history. I mean, people have sacrificed their Children for to the gods for a variety of reasons. So it happens. It Z crazy. I can't imagine to me my son is the most important thing If you want to use such a noun in my life Um, but you know, people would kill her kid over what a bad decision. Allegedly one of the people who went to the D C protest a week or two ago told his kids that if they talk to the FBI, he would kill them. I don't know if that's true or not, because it's the government making that accusation and the government's describing these people is, you know. Terrorists and all this other nonsense. When I was a kid, people would say the that they would kill. You know, like the the I'll kill or I'll kill you sort of statement was not terribly uncommon. No one. No one took a seriously right with my father. Who knows how serious this is. My father threatened to kill me. He did not mean it right? No one ever thought he did. Just like when we were kids, and we threatened to kill each other. No one ever believed it. But there did come a time in the early two thousands. I think it was where it became largely unacceptable to say that even among friends even as a joke, this is obviously a joke. We pointed relatively realistic looking plastic guns at each other all the time and pulled Driggers lots. But today in our society fueled by the cove, it induced delusion. It's acceptable to kick a toddler off a plane for not wearing a mask. When there's evidence that toddlers rarely spread the virus, it's acceptable for tech companies to spend a position social media account because he dared contradict the message. It's being fed to the public about covered 19. Those who are authoritarian and nature don't care about seeking up the truth. Rather, they prefer to seek out authority is one of the reasons why you're seeing so many people who'd happily approved the silencing of any medical experts whose views contradict the World Health Organization or CDC guidelines. Obey the rules becomes more important Ng more important than questioning if the rules are legitimate to begin with. But there have always been brave souls who dared to defy authority when they knew that truth was on their side. A classic example is Galileo who dared question the really powers claims that the sun revolved around the earth. It does seem rather attractive that just like Galileo, who was sentenced to a life under house arrest for daring to question the ruling authorities narrative, those of us today who are also questioning the mainstream authorities quote science Under covert 19 pandemic will end up like Galileo as we two are placed under complete house arrest. If this sounds like an exaggeration, keep in mind how there have been many talks about banning access to facilities for those who refuse to receive the vaccine. Ticketmaster, For example, if you crying a person's proof of vaccination before they can attend public events, I've also heard people say that they would like to see treatment restricted. Of those who don't wear masks. I mean, I've heard this a great deal. Now these people they're choosing not to wear masks will be taking a bed in the ER from those who, you know the good folks that war Basques and managed to get the disease. And still or something I don't even know. You know what if everywhere you mask works. How much does it work as a percentage chance. How much does it work and like nobody has any answers for this. No, they don't. And I've heard the same thing about me smoking, though. What would you die? You know, to serve a hospital bed, then fine. Yeah. If I can't pay for that hospital bed certainly don't give me one. I don't know what else to tell people. But if I have the money to pay for that hospital bill, there's no reason whatsoever that they would deny it to me right in a free markets. God knows that a you know some hobo somewhere should Should be getting that bed instead of you because you smoked something something. Even Andrew Yang, the former Democratic presidential candidate, is asking if it's possible to deploy. Proof of vaccination bar codes so we can track those who refused to be vaccinated. He asked on Twitter is there What s so I don't know. I mean, it's not like he's calling for the government to do this. He's just a politician tweeting the thing. But apparently that's how policy is written in the era of Trump. Is there a way for someone to easily show that they have been vaccinated? Like a barcode that they can download to their phone. Well, I think that's a different statement s. Oh, look, if like I said, if opening, if getting evac this, you know this this experimental gene therapy. We're calling a vaccine. If getting this gene therapy many articles about that, because it sounds like something worth getting into sure, it's an R in a vaccine, which apparently has not existed elsewhere. I can hunt it down during the break, but, um, I feel like we should at this point. Yeah, So if you, um if getting this opens doors for me somehow that I'm liable to do it, But it's not because it's because I don't think it's going to be terribly effective. In fact, what one thing that nobody is talking about His T cell immunity, There was an article out of great Britain that 50% of the population of Great Britain. Was immune, and I put it in Munich quote marks because it means basically you're less you It wouldn't be a severe right that was immune to covert 19 because of T cells that they had. And then they went back. What does this mean? What? The T cell? Yeah, well, I don't know. I'm not a doctor. I mean, it's stuff in your biology. What do I know? Um, you're quoting at the statement as though it's fact I just wanted him putting it is, though it's fact because I read it's like you can't describe it or source. I'm not. I don't know what T cells are exactly. I know that they were a big deal when AIDS was around, so they have something to do with immunity. There's killer T cells in the helper T cells, and I don't know..

"Andrew Yang did announce yesterday his strategy. He spilled the beans on how to pay for it. He said that New York needs to attach the non exempt Landowners, specifically the churches and synagogues. It's why I'm not sure that was a good thing to reveal during the campaign, even if it is your strategy. I don't think that's going to go over well in New York. You know, that was that was his big idea that came out yesterday. I'm a fan of Andrew Yang's I like Andrew. Um, but shot the only strategy that New York In my view, considering how upside down New York is is you basically need someone that knows how to create money out of thin air on guys like you and I are able to do that, and I'm happy to help. Whoever the new mayor is do this. My thought was, I believe that we consult New York's deficit. Months. Basically create really creative solutions. Yeah, he was in transit like we just talked about. It's like the stuff from crypto currency notes gonna be Blockchain technology. So, man, I look forward to seeing you when you get back. I really appreciate you taking a couple extra minutes with us and my thought. Um, yeah, I'm a Republican from Staten down, so I'm never gonna win the mayor's race. But the most important thing to New York City right now is the bank book and the purse strings and like you said, if they get another career politician in there, um And a guy like Andrew Yang wants to tax churches and synagogues. Shining City again, So I look forward to working with you. And I'm glad you already thought of my idea. Thank you. Thank you, John for having me and I look forward to seeing in New York soon. That's my buddy Brock Pierce, Presidential candidate and Innovator extraordinaire, hopefully running from there. Thanks, brother. You for being there, But don't go anywhere. We only have four days.

You know, I was telling you that, you know, Once upon a time in my rock radio days, we had him in the studio. He was here in town doing stand up. And so he was in the studio. So we we, uh you know, he was a really actually, dude. He was very, very nice. He talked about saved by the bell. And I don't think it was the greatest time for him with those guys around that time. I mean, we know There was a falling out or whatever, and s. Oh, yeah, He's been diagnosed with stage four cancer. They don't know exactly where it is. I was just reading about it, and they're not sure exactly where in his body. They're still trying to Get all of that figured out. Maybe they do. They're just not divulging. As the article I read on TMZ said he first noticed a lump in this throat. And then it just said he's got stage four cancer throughout his body, so they probably were trying to figure out where it originated from. But that doesn't sound good. If it's spread all over and Yeah, that's regard he's 43. I mean, not like I'm 39. That's four years older than me like the idea I can't have been. I can't have something like that happened to me in my six year old in a two year old You said his mom died of breast cancer cancer, so clearly it's in the family there. He's undergoing chemo. And right now he's their undisclosed hospital in Florida is where he said. They said he was kind of, um, I wanna like read what they were describing the way he went into the hospital. They said he wasn't feeling very good. He's feeling fine now. But when he went in, he was fading in and out, feeling sleepy and tired and on top of all of this, get this. The guy has shingles right now, too, so he's dealing with that. In addition to this stage for cancer that he has, but he's going through chemo. Now, they said. He's feeling a little bit better, but that Z screech From Saved by the bell. Dustin Diamond. Yeah. Yeah, I kind of, uh, kind of sad speaking a kind of sad. How about Andrew Yang and the Universal basic income about that Segway? Um, the universal basic income in New York City. He I'm gonna predict this isn't like a bold prediction. I think he's gonna end up being the mayor. I think he's gonna win E mean, who's not If you're liberal New Yorker who's not going to be happy about him, calling for universal basic income. In New York City, and you know exactly what was it I mean, you were saying it's the it's a half million of the poorest residents in New York City, and this is his plan to end poverty. Because nobody wow. Yeah. And what are you going to do? If and I'm not saying everybody does, you know, like, Oh, you're poor because all your bad decisions in life that's not necessarily true at all. But how many of those poverty stricken people are addicts? Um, our mental problems. That money that that's not going to fix it because that money's not gonna last much long longer for them, and they'll go through it. You wonder to yourself, you know, to get to the stage. I mean, he was one of the candidates this year. Or last year rather to be president. We know that he was he was in there. He went kind of He went farther than Kamila a lot farther course she was first to go so that she wa said to say, But my point being, how is it that He's gotta have a sense some semblance of intelligence. And then why would he say that? His? You know we can eradicate extreme poverty in New York City, if you and I are sitting here From where we're at, and you're pretty intelligent. Look, I make no bones. I I am not the Rhodes scholar. But if we can surmise from here, like what you know, you just brought up the greatest point. Some of those people that are in that area that he's talking about taking care of. You know they have legitimate psychiatric problems. Correct. And how could that that No good could come from that. You would think drug addicts like you pointed out. How is it that they can't see that Or they do, and they're just like their hearts because they're hard, Tonto, Their heart is bigger than their brains. That's that's kind of you know the bleeding heart liberal mindset. Or worldview. And again I don't poverty is caused by a lot of factors. We could we could do it an hour long show on the causes of poverty. Pray, do a whole show. But the idea of throwing money at it like all the schools are failing. Let's let's throw money at it. I go. What was that article from ABC six last night. That at 55 high schools in Columbus, they're only graduating 20%. I saw that man high schoolers. Yeah, there's five high schools in Columbus Public. Their graduation rate for seniors is 20%. That is staggering, Man. Let's just throw money at it. It goes deeper than that. It's a systemic problem on so many levels. I don't understand what people think. Just blindly throwing money at something is going to fix it. You know, I could see two. We know they cove. It is the root of that problem. You'd have to survive from last year, right? I mean, you got to say That cove. It is probably a large chunk of that. I would think maybe. I mean, you kind of have to kind of blame some of that on there. Well, not 80% of it, right Which I I would imagine they already had large chunks of, you know, non graduating between, but not 80 lack of a priority of education coming from a home. Broken home. How many of those kids are only going to school because they're under threat of being truant and being punished? There's a lot of different reasons, but then you factor in. Okay, well, the ones that are having are from bad homes or parents that don't care or what have you or maybe don't have parents. Then you take away their there in person, learning their ability to meet with a tutor per se. Cause there's a wall. Just get on the computer and do zoom. It's different. Trust me..
