I don't necessarily see it as a bad thing, but I do think the voices in the room that need to be discussing how to bring in regulation without stifling innovation is going to be important. And I left that conference feeling encouraged by what people who understand what's going on in the world of crypto is trying to bring forth as it relates to regulation. So I think that was probably the high points of the last week in all of the reign of negativity that is out there. But how about yourself?

Rep. Jim Banks: Pentagon Promotes CRT, Gender Identity 'Insanity'
"There is a very disturbing report out this is the headline from Fox News, Pentagon promotes critical race theory, gender identity, insanity. This is according to a GOP report that was obtained exclusively by Fox News, what's in this report? What can you tell us congressman? But The Pentagon told us that they weren't, they weren't pushing critical race theory, right? The last couple of years, they've been telling us that's not happening. It's not going on. It's completely provable and the report proves it that they've been advancing anti americanism through pushing CRT, other ideologies on our own troops. I've battled back and forth in the armed services committee hearing room with the top admiral and the United States Navy with secretary milley or general milley and secretary Austin, the top leadership of The Pentagon on these issues, it's unsustainable for a country to ask the next generation of young men and women to raise their right hand, take the oath of office that I did to serve protect and sometimes in some cases even ultimately the risk of paying the ultimate sacrifice for our country when we, at the same time, teach our kids and tell our troops that America is inherently evil and racist and that we're dying for this unsustainable as a country and that's why it's so dangerous that they would allow this ideology to creep into our institutions of the military and out among some of our troops who are younger who are enlisted and you're teaching them this garbage. So it's dangerous. We have to do something about it. Now that we had, again, now we have the we will have the majority. It might be a narrow majority, but Mike Rogers from Alabama will be the chairman of the House armed services committee with the gavel, we have to use that authority to force The Pentagon to stop spilling this garbage teaching this garbage pushing this garbage out on our men and women in uniform.

Oh, 'cause I never thought of that. Illinois southern Illinois touches St. Louis? It doesn't touch St. Louis, but but I mean, it's a suburb of it. Yeah, that's what I meant. Yeah. Oh my God. That is not in my brain that Illinois and Missouri border each other, or nearly border. Maybe separated by water. It's in your that's, I always look at you for anything Illinois related. You went to the University of Illinois, which urbana? Yeah. What's the if you T the most prestigious Austin? Is there a most prestigious University of Illinois branch? Which urbana?

The Gulf Between Left and Right
"This is truly fascinating. The Round Rock independent school district school board outside of Austin, Texas. Elected Esteban zarate to win a seat on the Round Rock school board. Said parents in his community were interested in fostering equity for students and promoting safety in the pandemic. Let's take the safety in the pandemic part now. So liberal parents in Austin are at peace indeed beyond that peace their advocate of shutting down schools during COVID. No matter how much damage was done to kids, not attending school for nearly two years, not seeing faces for nearly two years because of the idiotic counterproductive destructive, un science based idea of masking kids, despite all that, therefore it. Now, does this help explain the, what I call and half for years, the unbridgeable gulf between left and right? You're a parent who thinks that it was a good idea to deprive your child of school for two years. You have to be a liberal or a leftist to believe that. But in this case, I think liberals and leftists think identically, in most cases, they don't.

Some Ballot Measure Updates From California
"Here's another couple of interesting things. And other ballot measures that we haven't spoke about legalized sports gambling in California lost terribly. Isn't that interesting? Legalized sports gambling in California lost pretty badly. Prop 30 a measure to tax the rich to fund electric car credits in California failed. Okay, explain this one to me. How does that fail in California? I'm telling you, California has some fight left in it, man. I mean, the story of this cycle is how the Midwest underperformed in California over performed. And look, this was a sinister plot by the way of the crony capitalist company lift to try to get taxpayer taxpayers to get them to fund their electric car fleet basically. It was a crony capitalist handout. Prop 31 upheld the state's ban on flavored tobacco products. California legalized abortion as a constitutional right, but they upheld a ban on flavored tobacco products.
Why Were the Polls SO Off?
"Is something interesting though, Jack, one of the reasons why the polls were so often some of these states is that the Democrats have actually figured out a way to outperform polls by mastering vote by mail. That's right. That's exactly right. It's in the same way and Charlie, you're the point the other day where in the Trump era, we had become accustomed to sort of seeing a poll and then adding three. That was my built in algorithm. 5 points. And that was like a built in bias that we all kind of had. And that was the Trump effect, but we've also found that that doesn't really exist when Donald Trump is not on the ballot. We saw that in 2018, we're seeing that in 2022. It just is what it is. He has a way to connect with a huge swath of this country in the Midwest, in the south, in the rust belt. Obviously, that other candidates just have not been able to replicate. And it just is what it is. And you can talk about that at length as to why. But we're not seeing the same turnout numbers when he is on the ballot and when he isn't. And so because of that, those polls and we said before, the polls for this election actually were pretty good in many cases. Now, some outlets out there, but I think maybe we should take another look at and determine whether or not we want to continue relying on them. And I think that RCP, by the way, has a great accountability project that they're working on right now where they're going to be going through and then ranking and stacking all of the pollsters. Using the final outcomes, waiting it by the last few elections, and then seeing where we are. And I think that's great. I think that's fantastic. But at the same time, the Trump effect that we were thinking about. So, okay, that works in Trump's on the ballot. But this vote by mail effect that they've been able to demonstrate here. Now through at least two consecutive national elections. All right, that's real.
Here's Why You Can't Have Ranked Choice Voting
"Why you can't have ranked choice voting. Is the worst. This is so frustrating. Protect democracy, but allow ranked choice voting. Kelly shabaka, she won the most votes she won a plurality of votes in a four way race with 44%. So she won the race, right, Charlie. Not in Alaska. But she had the most votes. Doesn't matter. You have to get 50 plus one or else or else what? You go to the second round of ranked choice voting. The what? So in Alaska, the way it works, and this was designed and implemented because thanks to project veritas, we know this. Lisa Murkowski put together a coup in Alaska. And basically said that if you do not get 50 plus one, then it goes to the second round. Now, some people say, well, Charlie, to be fair, we're not won his race, but he didn't get more than 50%. Well, that's a runoff system. This is a this is not even allowing for a runoff, which I would support. If there is a runoff now between Murkowski and shabaka, then great. That's fine. Let's do it. Shabaka would win by 20 points. But it would be would it be would have run off with the ranked choice voting again? No, no, no, no. Well, that's the point, is that there isn't. Instead of a runoff, which is annoying but understandable. Right. Because some people say, well, hold on a second. But Georgia. Like Charlie, you know, isn't a runoff system helping you in Georgia. Of course it is. Yes, it is, because Herschel Walker did not get a plurality. We're not going to plurality. The point is this is that this now goes to this goofy algorithmic second and third round, where they have to tabulate the votes, and I'll be very honest. I do not even understand how this is tabulated, where it depends on whether or not people ranked shabaka or if they did a second candidate. Shabaka's hope in this whole tabulation process is that if a vast majority of people only ranked shabaka and left the rest of the ballot completely blank. That's her hope.
How the Abortion Ban Seems to Have Affected the Elections
"Anita and sanitizer. You're wrong with Jen. Hi. Hello. Hello. I know somebody. Hi, I know somebody ate my mother in law. She never voted Democrats. And she voted for beto because of the abortion thing. Wow. Okay. She's like, 70, 75 years old and she's never go to Democrats, but that was just a typical woman. A lot of I was going to say somebody said that on our show that they think there's going to be a lot of that vote of women telling their husbands, oh yeah, yeah, I'm voting Republican, but that may not, right? Yes, especially in these red states who are actually feeling it right now. Yeah. You know, I can't imagine, you know, we hear stories all the time about these women who are being turned away from hospitals who are bleeding, or and also Anita the youth vote. I just saw these lines that university of Austin yesterday that were amazing. I mean, just what we're seeing provably from early voting in youth turnout is really good news. Well, that's what I'm hearing. And for my daughter. And oh by the way, and she was out of her apartment, you know, student housing. And nobody sees young guys that were like 18 or 19 out there. And they were playing basketball. And she heard one of them turn to the others and say, have you voted yet? So, you know, I mean, that's not something the 18 and 19 year olds usually talk about.
Charlie Reviews Montana's 'Born Alive' Measure
"Please re up the Montana prop for me? If anybody is in Montana, please clarify this for me because it's just, it will take your breath away. Did you see this, Tyler? It must have been a massive out of state campaign. To say vote no on prop whatever. I don't think anyone read the prop. Okay. This is Montana. I want to read the prop for everyone there. Would you vote yes or no? To require medical care to infants who are born alive, including after an attempted abortion. Would you provide medical care to a baby that is born alive? How do you think Montana is voting on that? 52% of Montana voters say no, let the baby die. It's crazy. That's 52% now. I guarantee you I don't live in Montana. I haven't actually didn't get a chance to get there this summer. I guarantee you there was a lot of money probably spent on vote no for prop one 31. In defense in defense of this and of course I'm not going to defend it in principle. I am going to defend it in process. Same as with the Kansas outlawing abortion prop, you need to get better lawyers and you need to consult with legislators in order to write these. I read the language, the language was done sensical. I'm telling you dude, the language was not good in Montana.
How Did Arizona Get So Screwed Up?
"Asked a really good question here. And I just want to recap it and reiterate it. Charlie, how did Illinois get how did Arizona get so screwed up? Okay, so how did Colorado go this cycle? A great candidate hiding in all lost by 17 points, right? How about Washington's Tiffany smiley lost huge to patty Murray great candidate, right? How about organ? I don't think an organ, I don't think the Republicans are going to win an organ, despite a really good campaign. What does that mean? So those are three states in the American West where they tried to do mass universal vote by mail. And that same Soros funded strategy came to the shores or came to the edges of Arizona. What about 15 years ago? Yeah, conservative land. And no one really thought much of it, and it was started to get implemented and people really accepted it in Arizona for quite some time. And so then there were some people that praised God fought back a little bit. They said, no, we still need some mechanism to be able to vote in person. And so they're like, okay, whatever. As we try to wean you off of the drug of voting in person, we'll to these voting centers that you'll never really visit throughout the valley, right, Tyler. They'll kind of be on the edges and whatever. But because of our program, because of Steve Bannon, because the Tucker Carlson because of 2000 mules, people change their behavior, and they have this whole infrastructure that's really built for pre canvassing, right? To count all the ballots before election day, not for this. And now basically we're sending this referendum. Like, no, you got to change it, right? So Austin, Austin's going to the legislature. People say, what can it be fixed? Austin is going to be the youngest member of the Arizona legislature. Austin day one, we're going to get this fixed. We have to

Maybe a little bit more work would be needed in that regard but but i think yeah the my short answer would simply be holding some kind of office hours either where you're completely available or during these times. I'm i'm not one. You mentioned there is not being available to the whole world. I think essentially what social media does is makes available to the whole world. It makes us. It puts us at the mercy of the world. So i think by tackling wbap problem We can we can solve a lot of other issues as well. Austin.

There last year ran third So we're we're going to go there with similar pack as maybe change it a little bit. Try to be a little bit better. And you know our goal is to go out there and be aggressive and and win that race and if we can win that race that kinda just it kind of just a lot of weight off your shoulders going into the next two races because then you don't really have to worry about anything At all and you don't have to go into maybe that last race and then have to start worrying about point so hopefully not to worry about no points or anything like that. We can just go win. These these races are off the bat. And and just kind of get that behind us these You know make it into the final. Four has kind of been something that that we just haven't done in these last two seasons together and Last year was you know last year at texas we. We had a shot at winning the race. Caution comes out and they go go back to the last time online we were second. And then we run second at texas. And next thing you know go to martinsville and have an engine issue and and it takes us completely out of Out of the the final four and we thought that we we should have been been easily in the final final four for phoenix so You know our number one goal is to to get to that final four and then whatever happens it. Phoenix happens but we just want to at least have a shot at the at the championship. Absolutely we're on with the austin hill and You want on the dirt. Recently you wanted to road course you mentioned gateway coming up next on a schedule but i mean these first. Three races are completely different than what you've just want ad gateway darlington and bristol here in the The beginning round of ten. I mean that's got to be Just completely different from what.

How much actually like our players have different skills and actually how that applies in just the deeper game within the game. But these are all moments where you're still trying to prove yourself and not the austin ecuador the biggest breakout fancy star of two thousand twenty one according to bleed your book and you're not the guy that signs twenty six million dollar contract and becomes this guy who's a first round pick in fancy dress which i know you're aware of so. When did you realize you know what. I'm pretty good like. I'm the guy that since two thousand nineteen as at fourteen hundred thirty two yards after the catch more than any other running back or player in the league. You get more reacting anybody. You've done a lot of great things. When did you know that you belong like that. Austin eye gives me shivers a saying that because it just seems like like wow. That's that's amazing right ladies. How far is his comfort from this little town in colorado to now you know just being on the big stage in the nfl I'm not sure not sure has. I'm not sure if it's settled in yet. And i think that's a good thing because i don't i don't want to ever sue. I'm comfortable. I made it i. I think that's when you really start to see the downturn of your career so for me it's like i remember. i remember. I was just talking to my running back coach coach foster today. I remember my rookie year. I barely getting. And i take every single day like it was that i. I'm getting more reps now but this is my repre here. This is a game this to go prove myself on his play. Let's make the most out of this plan this opportunity because i would ship my way up. I'd ship my way of slowly. Slowly slowly position. Now you know. I've found myself on the starter on paper but to me. I'm still fighting for my job in fighting to you know you secure my spy in the nfl. So you're not thinking of yourself as this standout running back the way that i and others the fancy community right you right thinking like that when it comes to fantasy. Yeah i mean hype it up like yeah give me on your team but it's more because of my mindset my mindset right because when i get on the field i'm going to be the most efficient that i possibly can. What comes a fancy. Yes you want me on your fantasy team. 'cause i'm gonna get when i get the bomb and to make as much as like efficiency as i can right with the ball and opportunities of definitely yet. You want me on your fantasy team. How come people want you on their fat. She team austin. Give them more of a breakdown. Aside from that people want me on their fancy team because of my versatility that we've known from the past. The past you know is showing light to the future. They're gonna throw me the ball. I'm a run. The ball throw space. You throw me screens. I'm going to get the ball especially if you have a. Ppo league look point as easy points right. They're like come on and look at look at our new. Oh see coming over from the new orleans like look at tomorrow and how much of the impact. He made on his fancy teams. Look at it and just see the correlation between okay running-backs in this new system that we're running so that's a little bit of foreshadowing for you. Like oh awesome has a really good chance time opportunity to score a lot of fancy points and regardless who are. Oc is yeah. I would say that you know regardless of west but now even more so with our staff that we have now when joe lombardi takes over as of coordinator in l. a. Do you have any conversations with alvin. Kamara about what to expect at all shoe. I've watched enough to know what to expect lay. Hey he's gonna give me an opportunity to go win one on one he's going to give me option routes gonna gimme screens. You're gonna put me on this lies. put me out. Why a lot of that. You saw me in two thousand and nine thousand nine hundred. It's going to be a very similar. And so like i guess like let's go because that's i need to get back to that. And austin some people some players. They resent the fancy attention. They get sick of people commenting about that. And i think the people in the fancy community law is hard as it is for player one player embraces like. We've seen juju smith schuster. Come out and say star me this week. I'm gonna go when you a championship. Hear you saying right now breath me. It doesn't bother you. The attention from that world that exists out there that i believe helps drive the popularity sport i would one hundred percent agree. I would one hundred percent ingred and i. I truly have a passion for my fantasy members. that's why started streaming last year and actually giving insight inside. Hey how's your hamstring. Doing once i blew my. You know to looking about three weeks out right now. I know just trying to give some insight like people i care about me as a person because they on the fancy obviously so i'm trying to connect into. Hey like yup. I care about you guys not care about usb. My fan Just because i love to hear your care about the community and take care of the community i think you know. Obviously we have chargers fans. But then i think even the fancy fans even go much further than that and i think they care about us an individual more it might be because a fancy and they want you to score points and you're scoring points but it doesn't matter right. Whatever the reason is they're actually looking at you. They know your name. They're like common and understood. Hey when you can be back And i can really appreciate that. So that's why. I give myself to the communities. Loan open myself up you know. What as a guy who plays into fancy football leagues you become invested in the people that.

"We have the luxury of all you. Beautiful people listening are the ninety nine th percentile of dog people right like you. All are the best of the best. And i think that you have created this really beautiful space for people to donate to a proactive inclusive. 'cause which is not the norm in the the dog wealth or raising money industry right so i am so grateful that i was able to connect with you and kind of share this with everyone. And then just as a sidebar. Y'all they do merch too. So i gotta take chops as doug trainings for everyone at super cute super soft. So that's another way for those of you. Who are listening can support the mission here. Yeah and honestly a lot of it too like if folks have worked with us or watched a webinar reviews are super helpful. You can do it for free. You don't have to take out your pocketbook not the most money l.'s. Have pocketbooks anymore. But that's a totally separate thing. You don't have to give us your money. If you can write us a review that is hugely helpful to let people know that we're out here and again even though we're austin-based if you have someone who is really struggling we can't do it for all the time but we can take remote clients to try and get them in for virtual sessions. We're usually able to get people in quickly even if it's an emergency And there's so much stuff like that just following us on social media makes such a huge difference so that people know that we're out here and that poor legit and you never know when that friend you tell might actually have a friend in austin or have a friend who has a few million dollars that they wanna give tobias a training facility. You never know if you have that friend. Please have them reach out to me. I would love to meet them Everyone listening could you tell them where they can connect you website instagram baseba.

"So you know if we have folks especially in the austin area but even if you're not in the austin area if you know a lot about a particular group that you think does not typically connect with training resources or behavior resources Please let us know. We are very open to suggestions. We want the expertise of people who know what the heck they're talking about when it comes to these different populations because we can't know all the things or do all of the things ourselves. And i love how you bring up paid volunteering right. Because i think know everyone listening right like you could help. Insert know that she's not trying to get your services for free right. She's she's more than happy to compensate us so that you can help. Connect her with the communities that she can support right. So and i think that that's a really lovely segue until like being received means that you have to create funds and raise. You know you wanna speak a little bit about like do you have any fundraising events. Plans like how are we going about that right now. Yeah so now we have been really just relying on on small individual donors. We've been really really lucky in that we've been able to help some folks through some quick emergency situations and we've had some really thankful folks in there we have tito's vodka is super cool and they are all about the dogs so we've done some stuff with them with some of the rescue organizations but we're new and so really for us getting the word out. There has been an important and we're a little bit kind of the people who will like jump off the cliff and hope the parachutes going to be there so especially with especially with a lot of the services that were offering it was like. Well we just have to do it and will make it work so michelle and myself have been volunteering for a very long time We're now at a place where we're starting to hire trainers and hire folks to to do some of the school staff with us We think it's really valuable to be able to pay people for their work in addition to folks who just want to volunteer and both of those things are totally valid and awesome But that's that's a big piece for us is is figuring out how to get how to get the word out there. I think one of one of my challenges is i know that people want to put their money towards animals and they wanna put their money towards behavior but what often happens is we have a dog who is really struggling who is potentially not really adoptable at this point has done. Some bad stuff isn't doing very well and somebody wants to send him to sanctuary or send him into some kind of bored train program which oftentimes leads to some not. So great outcomes and seven thousand dollars gets donated to this one dog and all i can think of is like you know if if we charge seventy five bucks for a console that could be so many dogs that we did consults for or if we were able to do like webinars or pay people to do some kind.

"Think so my my first real learning about behavior in the shelter. I had these couple of knucklehead boys who had both been in the shelter forever. And we're just like the epitome of like the jumpy malady over aroused idiot young male dogs and we see so many of them and they sat in the shelter for a long time and both of them had people who said we should euthanize these dogs and both of these dogs who are in a home setting like pretty lovely You know still have their challenges but one of them lifts with bunny rabbits in the home and has not tried to eat said. Bunny rabbits which. I think is amazing So learning from those guys and learning how much there was that was outside of the shelter world in how how much our shelter life kind of affected that i also spent a bunch of time seeing playgroups and how often we would see shelter. Dogs came in with just pretty significant deficits in social skills. Whether that was you know they had gotten themselves into trouble with other dogs. And that's maybe why they were at the shelter but actually did well in the right. Kind of curated playgroups But the other thing being reactive dogs like we we just in the shelter we would get so many young reactive dogs that were what Fitzsimmons here in austin closed the leash lens which i think is so perfect like the. You know they're screaming they're lunging. They're barking are absolutely territory. Walk unleash a lot of people. Don't wanna own them because of this and these are dog to a lot of them actually would be fine living with another dog or in certain play context but they're hard to own because in a city life people don't want a dog like that And a lot of that stuff. Where i'm like man. If i'd gotten you a year ago. I wonder what would have happened or here in texas. We get a lot of these really under socialized sort of semi feral dogs..

Cpt k. a. and working on my master's in applied animal behaviour through virginia tech. Right now And i run a cool nonprofit in austin texas called every dog behavior and training so as a person who grew up Training from shelter land and worked in shelter land for a number of years. I kept getting really frustrated that we would see these same kind dogs coming in all the time. So you know these dogs where we went man. If i'd gotten you at puppy class or man if i had gotten you six months ago you wouldn't be here but now it's gonna be really hard to manage and train and kind of fix the problems that you're coming in with and so when i left the shelter world and awesome a partner of mine. She and i decided to open every dog. Which is really geared towards getting access for training for for folks who don't already have it so We've been really enjoying not so far but both big training nerds different histories and backgrounds with training And it's been really fun trying to kind of approach training from a different angle here. So okay so. I want to hear a little bit. More about your sheltering background. But before that could you help the listeners. Understand how every dog austin is a little bit different than just like the average dog training business. Yeah absolutely so every dogs of five zero one. C three nonprofit which is very world pretty weird in the training world And we're that way for a couple of reasons one of them is because we don't want to compete with our local positive reinforcement based trainers we want to be a collaborative force there so wherever we can. We're working with folks so we have some of our trainers that are giving webinars. Even some more national.

And last year, it was just so phenomenal to see the outpouring of people into the streets and, and the way that it became this thing that was that I could no longer even really consider as an identity, because it was just, like, normal of a sudden.

My name is Austin horse since 2005. I've been in New York City as a bike messenger. And I've really seen a lot of the the way that things have changed over those years. It's it's pretty remarkable to have been there at that moment and to be where I am at. You know, the moment that I am now off, the bike world has changed a lot. I actually started, I guess I guess I became really involved and enamored with bikes as a teenager. It was my first job as soon as I could legally be employed was at a bike shop and it's just been It's been hard to leave bikes ever since. Where, where are you from? Originally grew up in Houston.

"It's tuesday july thirteenth. They say they wanna make it easier to vote not for themselves. You start here in an act of coordinated defiance democratic lawmakers fleet excess. They're really kind of delaying the inevitable. They say they're not returning home until republican voting bill is dead will explain their new weather. Lucien booing in cuba. People are really angry and very frustrated. How the outrage boiled over. We'll take you to havana. And your boss wants you back at the office. But is it all about productivity really. Wouldn't have right now. Are huge amounts of commercial real estate. That is going unused factor. Ceo's aren't saying out loud and what you can do to keep a more flexible schedule from abc news. This start here. i'm brad milkey. One of the less sexy words in the world is quorum like no one gets site when the latin starts getting busted out but a quorum is basically the minimum number of people. You can have a meeting to make it official to get it on the record so if two people on your condo board get together and quietly decided to make a new rule. Nah you need a corp. This is also the rule that allow texas democrats to completely halt a bill earlier this summer. That was about to become a law. There eighty six as zero. Nays the motion to skews fails for lack of corum the democratic caucus chair. Chris turner sent a text message to spread the plan members. Take your key and lead. The chamber discreetly do not go to the gallery leave. The building on the last day of the legislative calendar democrats literally sneaked away from texas state house in austin to keep this voting security bill in limbo to which republican governor greg. Abbott said. This is ludicrous but is going to schedule a new session solely to pass this bill governor. Abbot tweeted late last night. Quote election integrity and bail reform. Were emergency items for this legislative session. They still must pass. The thinking was you can hide for a day. You can't deny us of corn for a full month to which democrats are saying. Wanna bet and the breaking news on this monday happening in austin texas. Democrats are now walking out of the special session even leaving the state and its now one of the nation's constricted voting laws up for debate some of these texas lawmakers have fled not just the building but the state they represent. Let's go straight to. Abc's deputy political director. Avery harper avery. This is like such escape from alcatraz but escape from austin right like what is going on here right well in texas. There is a rule that state troopers can sort of round up lawmakers who have escaped or left the capital and bring them back to the capitol and so what we have seen now to prevent the passage of this elections. Bill everybody uses state representative. Much just arrived here in austin at the airport about to leave. Washington hyper voting rights. We've seen more than fifty. Legislators not only just leave awesome but leave the state entirely our never moment for our country together traveled to dc where they plan to speak with at the press today about their game plan but right now game plan is pretty unclear because they're really kind of delaying the inevitable. Which is that this. This bill is going to pass because they just do not have the votes to stop it and just the mechanics of it like these people work for the state of texas. They get a taxpayer written check. Right do they keep getting that when they leave. The state is there a method by which the state the state troopers can't go outside of texas to get them back right and that's exactly why they've left the state because if they were anywhere in the state of texas they would have been able to be rounded up by state troopers anybody. That's not a walkout. You go back and look at texas history from the killer bees. So what happened in ardmore in albuquerque in two thousand and three they've all always lost and we've seen it in the past. They've they've had lots of fights within the state house previously where we've seen state reps go right over the border to say an arkansas or an oklahoma to avoid having to face the music down in austin any member of the legislature will be walking out on property textually foster kids a the security of farmers in ranches ranchers. Home assume seem governor. Abbot threatened funding for the legislature and while in texas the legislators themselves are part time so it might not be a big deal it would also have prevented their staffs from getting paid and those folks fulltime and so what is the status than of this bill. You said this is kind of like delaying the inevitable. This bill one of the most hardcore in the country. If it ever passes right right right. It's pretty restrictive. We're talking about taking away limiting hours and making it harder to vote via mail And also harder to vote are early representative. Cloudy these new bills. They're missing some of the provisions that were in the previous legislation for example. There's no longer a provision restricting voting on sundays or a measure to allow election officials to overturn results. If voter fraud allegations. Why make these changes. We have made those changes that everybody stayed home Last second four last day of session and we voted the bill out in the past. So what we do know is that this is eventually going to pass. But they're not gonna be able to pass it tomorrow because there's not enough folks who are going to be in the state house in order to debate. We all believe firmly. There is no voter fraud in this state. So this is a solution search of a problem and the texas democrats who are in dc. Say the reason for them. Being in the nation's capital is to lobby for support of federal election reform. It takes two parties to work in a bipartisan way. Ultimately what we will need is federal legislation passage of things like before the people act the john lewis voting rights advancement act. But the fact is is that it's republicans in dc who are holding it up. Ultimately the republican majority will probably get what they want and we need federal help in. So it's really just delaying the inevitable. This is not going to keep voting legislation from passing texas. And so it's a concern here. I'm just trying to think about this. From sort of a political optics. If the concern here is about democrats are saying we want to avoid it. Broken democracy does that get remedied by a bunch of people literally packing up and leaving going to another region where they have no jurisdiction by the way taking campaign contributions throughout this thing. You know help support me here. Does that improve where we are as a democracy avery. No the governor of texas called an anarchy. Some of us are willing to sit down and negotiate. But we're not gonna go sheets. Are the right to vote away. The democratic spoken with from texas vehemently disagree. They say they're in it for the long haul as long as it takes to kill legislation whether that is a few days or whether that's for the remainder of the special session on that's up to that's up to the republicans. They believe that this is the only tool. They have to make their last stand. And so they're gonna use it. I wild scene in texas now. Dc in fact later today in philadelphia president biden will be giving a speech on voting rights every harper next lot. Thanks brad.

I'll tell you what i When i converted Both politically and religiously Back in the eighties I left i was in magazine publishing fortune forbes. The atlantic monthly rolling stone and i walked away from that and volunteer my time for a couple of years with the catholic priest in new york city. Waiting for something interesting to happen. That would combine both my faith and my interest in politics and one day. I happened to meet a young lady who had been come down had come down from canada and she said that she had raised Her organization raised a bunch of money to open up. Pro-life lobbying group the un. and i. it's funny that the the final book that i read when i when i realized that i was conservative was daniel patrick.

"The state of catholocism in america today seems to be coming up a lot. Joe biden claims to be a catholic. Can he take communion the pope with medical issues questions. What is the opinion of the vatican with regard to illegal immigration in the united states. These in many issues confront catholics today. A new book by austin reuss under siege. No finer time to be a faithful catholic. Austin roofs has headed the center for family and human rights. Shortly after its creation ninety seventies held the title of president since two thousand. He was a founder of the national catholic prayer breakfast and founding columnist at the catholic thing dot org austin. First of all. Why write this book under siege. No finer. Time to be a faithful catholic. Well you know the the. The idea of the book is summed up in the title and the subtitle these days i. It's not just catholics. But people say are under siege from the dominant culture which is the antithesis of what we believe and are coming for us specifically and and So i wrote this to explain further and in greater detail. How rendered under siege. But then what a great blessing it is that that God almighty send us here at this time when everything seems so desperate show I take people through the valley of the shadow of death. And i bring him Out the other side into this sunny uplands of Of god's creation and you fear no evil in the process. Why are catholics under siege. Well catholics Well i'll tell you what The ever since the french revolution The the the radical left Has properly understood that The great enemy of their what of what they see to be their happiness are the church in the family. And if the french revolution they specifically went after the catholic church And the catholic church really has been the target of all this wrath since that time You know the catholic church has never changed her position even once on these incredibly controversial issues. abortion Marriage family Contraception you know that. The church takes this view on contraception for instance which you know even are evangelical brothers and sisters. Maybe don't really understand. But the church has stood foursquare against the i against contraception. Gosh since it's an ancient teaching So so the the left knows that the enemy is is the church writ large and most specifically the catholic church because the catholic church has never changed your teaching on these controversial issues and never will so as a southern baptist baptist. I don't ask this in a confrontational way. I ask it in a curious. Way when we see nancy pelosi claiming to speak as a good catholic and talking about her support for abortion. What are we to make of that. Well that she's an unfaithful catholic That she's a dissenting catholic You know everybody knows what. The church teaches on abortion and therefore everybody knows that nancy pelosi is outside of the church on on that particular question now. The begging. The question is then. Why doesn't your something about it. And golly i wish that The hierarchy culture would do something about it. I wish that they would Deny her community. I wish they would excommunicate her. But you know that's their job and not mine It does give scandal for instance to you and and Are are evangelical and protestant fundamentalist pentecostal brothers and sisters. Who see this and don't understand and you have my entire sympathy. I don't understand either..
