The New American Library
"When was the last time you went to the library? Was It for a book a movie? Even a toy. Was it for an exercise class, or maybe it's one of the few places where you're able to access the Internet. For the future trusts I'm Dan La Duke, and this is after the fact. Libraries aren't just about books anymore and haven't been for a long time. But. They've always been about the democratization of information. Thanks to Benjamin Franklin it was about this time of year on July. First 1731 that Franklin created the first free lending library in Philadelphia it signaled a real change in the world that America, not yet its own country. Was a place where information could be available to everyone turns out. That concept has become a cherished one. The Pew Research Center reports that seventy eight percent of Americans say public libraries provide information, and here's the key part information that is trustworthy and reliable. That's no small thing in this digital information age when many people are also saying they have trouble. Sorting fact from fiction sounds like something we're talking about and celebrating and joining us to do just that is Carla Hayden the Librarian of Congress the fourteenth person and the first woman and African American to serve in that role. So Carla Hayden Welcome. It's a delight to talk to you. Thank you. This is a great time to talk about libraries this time of year this podcast likes to talk about the importance of certain American institutions and how they've made our country great. We are right around the fourth of July. That's whenever we want is sort of paying attention to the Declaration of independence, and that's an important thing, but there's another another big American holiday that people may not realize on July first back in seventeen, thirty one when Ben Franklin created the first library in this country beckoned those days. What was the stated goal of a library? And how how if any way is it different? Than the goals today. Benjamin Franklin if you remember was a bookseller and a lover of books, and that time books were very rare and very expensive, and they could only be obtained with great difficulty and so Ben, Franklin. Wanted to have a membership society, The Philadelphia Library Company and he started the idea of lending library and it was in this time. They weren't a nation yet, but it was starting and the idea that. Information and ideas should be free and not clasp out. So that library was created not scholars, the rich one class, but for people who could not afford to have their own, and as time in the decades progressed I mean. The other founding fathers Thomas. Jefferson, being one of them recognize the need for the institution that you now head the library of Congress. It's IT'S A. It's the biggest in the world for for for one thing. Why was there this decision back then to create a library of Congress and National Library sorts in eighteen, Fifteen The British destroy the US capital and there were about twelve hundred. Legal books near for Congress and I've been told, and even shown the fireplace in the capital where the British actually use some of those books, those initial books to start that fire, and at that time Thomas Jefferson the great collector books at the largest personal collection of books in the country at that time. Had retired to Monticello, and he offered to sell his collection to the country to start the library of Congress, and it included the Koran. It was a universal collection. The idea that Congress needed more than just legal books soon said there is no subject to which member of Congress may not have occasion to refer the democratization of information was The whole democracy notion was pretty new in the world in those days. How important is the free flow of information in libraries? ROLE IN OUR DEMOCRACY? Libraries have been almost bastions of equal opportunity to information. The idea that anyone could have access to books. And what more importantly was contained in them was the great equalizer in unifier in many ways now there were difficulties in this country as you could imagine in the Jim Crow South. On there was the segregation of public libraries like public facilities, and that was something that even carried over into some of the northern. A states that had as they call them colored branches. Actually were designated, but that idea. Of A library, being a place as librarians like to say, books could battle it out on the shelves. You put. A book about one thing there and the possibly opposing idea book that describes in another idea. Right next to it and let the public decide.

How daylight saving time works and why these states want to ditch it
"To have you about this daylight savings time this weekend right as we get that spring forward one hour I understand that there is an interesting Pittsburgh connection what is that there sure is one of the main to the proponents of having daylight saving time was a member of the Pittsburgh city council his name was Robert garland in the early nineteen hundreds and he kept proposing that we have daylight time actually to go back a little bit Benjamin Franklin came up with the original idea of daylight saving time of course you never like to city in his days back in the seventeen hundreds but he thought they could say candles burning a candles an hour's worth in the summertime you would have to I. your candles as quickly but nothing ever came of Franklin's idea he proposed daylight time way back then but nobody took it up no country pick it up but in World War one Germany was the first country to the institute daylight time to save energy during the war and that this this guy in Pittsburgh on the pitch for city council Robert garland was a real big proponent of having daylight time he campaigned very heavily with Congress and with president Woodrow Wilson and in fact had a minute to review with with president Wilson in the White House explaining how daylight time would help save energy during World War one and finally you Congress passed the law Wilson signed the bill and gave it the pain that he signed the bill with to garland so he was really one of the four winners of daylight time so anyhow we we had daylight time during World War one not only here in the United States but in other European countries and then in the war big white time cease
The Story of William Tell
"To legend William Tell was a whiz with a bow and Arrow he lived in the mountains of Switzerland the opening of the William Am tell overture paints a beautiful picture of a mountain sunrise starting with a great solo for cello. In fact the whole first part of the overture is written just for the low string instruments cello bill bases MHM with a couple of ominous drum rolls to give you a hint that the weather forecast for today is not good. Sure enough when the rest of the orchestra joins in. It's a signal. The arrival of a Rossini specialty it starts with wind in the trees and some small blinky raindrops tell pretty soon. We're into a full-fledged downpour complete with lightning and thunder the sort of storm Benjamin Franklin would not have wanted to be caught flying in his kite in portraying. Thunderstorms in music was one of the things. Rossini did best. Rossini also used thunderstorm in this overture to show the political critical storm brewing. In William tells part of Switzerland which was controlled by foreigners from Austria headed by nasty guy named Yesler. Gessler thought that even when he wasn't around people should show how important he was by bowing down to his hat which he stuck on a pole in the middle of town. When William Tell came to town with his son he thought it was pretty dumbed? Bow Down to a hat on a pole. Gessler was not amused. But instead of killing William Tell Gessler usual punishment for failure to salute a hat in a public place Gessler. I said I hear Europe. Pretty hot. Shot Mister Towel. If you can prove it by shooting an apple off your son's head with a single Arrow I'll let you go. Uh both the story and the thunderstorm have happy endings when the rain ends outcome the birds. And because we're in Switzerland home of Swiss cheese and milk chocolate there are cows to be called the orchestra instrument that does a lot of cow calling duty. Is the the English horn. It's sitting in for an Alpenhorn a Swiss folk instrument that's used to call from mountain to mountain back back to the story of William Tell who did shoot the apple off his son's head with a single ero but Gessler. The bad guy noticed that before tell took his one one shot. He took two arrows out of his quiver so he asked why Williams tells answer was if I had missed that second era would have been for you eventually. William Tell did kill Gessler which started a Swiss uprising and got rid of the Austrian invaders. If you're going to have an uprising rising what do you need trumpet to rally the troops and of course horses. And that's the part of the William Intel overture. You probably recognize your parents or grandparents know it as the theme to the Lone Ranger Radio and television shows

Some episodes will be me and George and dirty bits after dark so I think we got a good format going on here all your basics covered no matter what you like. We're going to have it. It's the best part. So how much do you know about Benjamin Franklin. He's on a hundred dollar bill whole you looking at the show notes. That cheater cheater. Pumpkin eater you able with that saying he came up. I have a whole list of them there. Some the little saucy actually what it will taste. After three days men grow weary of a wench. A guest and weather rainy. Neither a fortress Snorre maidenhead will hold out long after they begin to parlay she that paints her face thinks of her tail I liked that allows there were saucy things written about him to. There's one of my favorites. Franklin Bo plagued with fumbling age age needs nothing to excite him but is too ready to engage when younger arms. Invite him did you know this going in to uh-huh yes. Everybody does right for the most part. That's what I thought to some free stuff. I mean so Benjamin Franklin hardly does this man. You didn't introduction action but just in case anybody's unfamiliar with the Founding Foreign Cater. He was really good at a lot of stuff. A polymath if you will dude did it. All Comedy Deep Science Politics Freemasonry just to name a few things. He invented bifocals. He was largely responsible for repealing. The Stamp Act he was the first I ever American ambassador to France the first ever postmaster general he was the governor of Pennsylvania founded Philadelphia's very first fire department -partment and founded the University of Pennsylvania. Walter Isaacson the journalist in history professor said he was the most accomplished American of his age and the most influential in inventing the type of society America would become so we can blame Benjamin Franklin for everything we blame him for the good things. Do sure why why not broker. You're more optimistic. I am Oh he also wrote poor. Richard's almanack that one I know That's where we early to bed. Early to rise makes a man healthy league wealthy and wise you know. He pushed all of these moral codes that he believed every man should live by and followed none of them himself. So Benjamin. Franklin's love for the ladies particularly intelligent. Young beautiful ones has been very well documented. He's been connected with one Anna. Louise Day hardened cords Brianti Riande Zhu. Who is a young extremely successful composer? He tried to seduce but failed. She ended up calling him share. Papa which is like my dear father uh-huh bird zone. That's because he was well that's the zone that he should probably in so she was learning this cool new instrument that was in. Let's very beginning stages that was called a piano and she wants wrote to him. Do you know my Dear Papa that people have criticized the sweet habit. I have of sitting on your laugh and your habit of soliciting from me what I always refuse pretty brother. She was sharp. That's why he liked her second. Madam hello the vetus. She was a rich noble widow. He dated who had property in the countryside and he proposed to her but she turned him down so her friends were pissed because they liked hanging out with Franklin so much and if the two had gotten married he would have stayed and they all could've kept hanging out in France together but it was a little scandalous because John Adams wife Abigail came to visit. Is it one time you know. Because he was staying with Madame. Hell Evita's and Abigail puritanical. Sensibilities were just mortally offended. Because she witnessed I Benjamin and Madame holding hands during dinner she was hanging on them and she was kissing his cheeks and his forehead. Oh Why is new. Abigail was a downer. That's one thing that really stuck with me through grade school is she was like no fun zone. John Adams life was like take no shit. MORALISTIC Laura Listrik puritanical. Shining City on the hill. She may have cocked locked. Ben It sounds like she was actively trying to number three Margaret Stevenson Stevenson. More on her later number. Four polly Houston Margaret Stevenson's daughter also more on her five Madame Fo- colts who was his landlord's daughter who was very much married also became his mistress at the encouragement? Just you wait for this move. This happened because the first composer and elouise Heron Court beyond deja-vu okay. Her husband was like. Oh yeah you should totally like shack up with her. That should be your mistress address. Because he wanted him to stay the hell away from his wife. Oh that doesn't make it any better but go on. This is the quote directly that he wrote to Franklin good. He does speaking about out. Madame focal we saw her yesterday. She is marvelously plumped once again and has just acquired new curves very round curves Barry White. They they seem to have equality most essential in the eyes of amateurs. Such as you it would be possible. I bet to kill a fly on them. Number six is contest and Apollon Holonyak. She's an aristocrat big fan girl Benjamin Franklin and she's at the French court and she's talking about him incessantly and she annoyed King Louis so much with her incessant talking about Benjamin Franklin that he gave her a chamber pot with Franklin's image depicted on it which is a level of petty that I can only ever aspire to so he was so sick. `Bout hearing about him that he gave her a chamber pot with his face on. Yeah like you guys you wouldn't. We actually liked him yes he was very wasn't like Oh. Thanks like you were being sarcastic. We'll know like she took it like it was insulting. It's like as if if somebody gave me like Jason Momoa toilet paper you'd be very number seven contests tests will amino glacken. They had some Sassy letters. They exchanged got number. Eight is Katharine Race. She's fun in seventeen fifty five when he was like fifty and she was twenty three they met when he was traveling and he propositioned her. Like hey you wanna go. And she was like no. Thanks but I'm not offended by it and they just it kind of sent these flirty messages back and forth and Franklin was. Always like you know if you change your mind on the whole hooking up thing just let me know and she was always like now. This is exactly the kind of non-threatening ego boost. I need to get me through the week cells. Just leave it at this. He's giving rejected quite a bit out there. I'll give them that. There's a good payoff. This this is like I'm glad you're noticing this number nine Georgina Shipley. She's the daughter of a bishop. Who requested that Benjamin Centrists snuff box with his picture on it and a lock of his hair inside? She was very pleased with the result and wrote him a letter. That said how shall I sufficiently express my raptures on receiving your dear delightful rightful letter and most valuable present. The pleasure I felt was increased. If possible by the site of the beloved little lock of Hair I kissed both and that picture one thousand times number ten madame Lavar. So she's the daughter of the Mayor of Passy in France and she had a huge crush on him like she knew about him like beforehand. She was like. Oh my love Ben Franklin so when he came to France she left him a little note. That said Mademoiselle Levy Yard came by to have the honor to be kissed by Monsieur Franklin so women were going after him to number eleven. Madam Leroy this is adorable. She was so tiny in cute and little that he called her his pocket. Wife have really big bugs And then number twelve contest Ho talked. She was a woman. Twenty five five years younger than Benjamin loved. Politics loved America totally Pro America before he even made it to France. She already had this like really strong stance on Benjamin Franklin Linden just all things America and she had already ignited a fire dirty bits alumnus. Jean Jacques Rousseau. If you recall this woman was like hot stuff and she seemed to inspire inspire the same in Franklin when you read their correspondence lot of sexting and of course Deborah read his wife of thirty eight years whom he largely ignored. would she find with that. I have a feeling that she was fine with that. They had an interesting relationship. Let's thirteen women and those are just the ones I know about. Okay to understand all this you you really need to go back to the beginning when Benjamin was born in seventeen o six because he was born on Sunday so he was naturally morally bankrupt according to the puritans that's the opposite. What's the reasoning? There you know I do. They thought if you were born on Sunday that meant you were also conceived on Sunday and we all know you aren't supposed to be tested out the mattress actress. On the Lord's Day puts US in other words. Well that's how it works. But that's what they thought salute and it seemed like Benjamin Franklin really like leaned into to this kind of concept that he was just doomed from the start he wants made the suggestion to his dad like in the interest of time. They should just pray over all the food in the house once they didn't have have to keep praying over really inefficient. Just gone the Pantry. Say A blessing. Let's get on with our day. Hey we went hunting. There's a bunch of meat hanging up in here. I don't know why we just don't go in and just blessed hall. y'All thankful at once. Did he come up with Thanksgiving or no and his whole you know. Kind of Quirky view of the church just stuck with them is entire life tale. There was this one time he was talking to a military chaplain about droops not attending services. Like Damn I just don't know what to do. Nobody's coming to church and Ben Goes. Why don't you just I advertise? You'll have beer. After Church problem solved. Everybody will come to church if there's beer he didn't do it though so puberty ends up. Hit him like a train when he's fourteen when he noticed what they called Doxiadis when he was out in about one night that was a word for prostitute in time so when he's eighteen he starts dating Deborah Reed who we already know he's going to grow up and Mary. He starts dating her just before. He's about to make this big business trip to London for some printing equipment with his buddy James Ralph because the guy runs a newspaper as we all know. That was how we got to start. If you missed that we can second grade that focused on Franklin. He had been set up in the publishing industry thanks to rubbing elbows with the governor Pennsylvania so he was in a good spot now. This ended up being unless of a business trip and more of a classic boys. Euro trip than American dudes are known for taking the age of eighteen. To go get laid it was nothing but boozing bubis I think that's the a new national lampoon movie movies so Benji and James or having this grand old time until the former hit on the ladders mistress tames was so pissed he went no contact with his Powell and didn't even then Mo him the twenty seven pounds the Odom for his share of the beer tab or something like that he owed them money for something and he just never never paid him back people really took their mistresses seriously back on it oh it was a whole culture. That's one of the things I want to cover. Later is just like the sex culture around these particular times because it was very late. There was expectations and codes and everything automatically think mistress mistress prostitute. It's not whatever that was like your girlfriend friend wrote so Ben was gone for eighteen months and he'd only written one letter to his girlfriend. Deborah during this entire time he gets back. Deborah had just called the relationship awash because she hadn't heard from him in eighteen months and she had ended up marrying a guy who was a potter by trade. She's been described as not being particularly cute. Ben Once said that she had a figure figure similar to a beer mug so he wasn't really too broken up about not being with Deborah and then he proceeded to date a Salou of heiresses with big ass dowries while continuing canoeing to sleep with hookers on the regular while also making his fortune at the age of twenty three when he started the Pennsylvania. Gazette how civilised not eating away this man's brain some people get lucky but he wasn't that lucky because someone tan seventeen thirty one and gave him a son named William and though historians orients have their suspicions in regards to the mother's identity possibly his maid named Barbara but really nobody knows who it was. Franklin was super super tight..
Use Your Money to Buy Happier Time
"I keep thinking about something that guests said recently on the show we have been living for several decades is kind of a tenant of life structure that are orgnization has created for us. We know where we're going to be at nine AM Monday through Friday. Our weekends are also structured around that because you know, maybe one day or part of days the day that we do all the chores. We didn't have a chance for that was Theresa a mob lay on episode sixty five she was saying it in reference to her research on retirement, but what really struck me is this idea that your job dictates your weekends, even dictates. How you spend your time off. And that's why I'm excited for today's episode. Our guest today believes people would be happier. If they spent more of the money, they earn at work to get back more of their time when they're not working Ashley Willens researches. The tradeoffs we make between time and money and says we often get those wrong. She says, we should spend more money. Not just on things we like, but to get us out of the things we don't enjoy say yard, work cooking or commuting. Ashley Willens is an assistant professor at Harvard Business School. She's also the author of the HP are article time for happiness. Ashley, thanks for coming on the show. Thanks so much for having me. Your research concluded that the happiest people use their money to buy time. And there's that phrase, you know, money can't buy you happiness. But you're basically saying that if more people used money to buy time that they could use that time to be more happy. Yeah. So we really liked to flip this Benjamin Franklin's adage on its head and say, well, if time has money, maybe also we can think that money can buy happier time, my research really focuses on using money to buy cells out of negative experiences. So subtracting negative minutes from our day subtracting time that we spend stuck in traffic subtracting extra work hours were were just spinning our wheels. And really, we should go home subtracting housecleaning, but really any way that we spend money in a way that might save us time such as also buying ourselves into positive experiences has reliable and positive effects on on the happiness that we. Get from our days or weeks or months and our lives. Even though people feel like the world is busier than ever, you know, you point out in your research that the average American for instance, has more time for leisure than they did forty years ago. And so it sounds like you're saying that now that people have more time, they just spend it earning more money or taking jobs that make them busier rather than using the time. Yeah, I think it's really interesting that, you know, work hours have gone down. But people are feeling more stress than I think, it's exactly that's we think that business is a status symbol, we focus. Our attention on getting ahead, especially in North American culture. So I think there's this element. One of the fact that even though we have more free time, we might fill it more with work or commuting really far away. Because we want to have this really nice house that we don't get to spend any of our time. And we don't get to enjoy because we're always commuting to work. Really, far and ubiquitous connection to the internet. Also means that we experienced what's some researchers have called time confetti, so not only maybe a retrying to filler time with more work in being more productive. But also, our time is more fragmented were more distracted, and that also contributes to these higher feelings of time stress, but also time is very hard to track. And so if we have windfalls of time, we often fritter them away. So it's interesting is that in one of our my clobbered or an ice studies. We find that buying time or spending money on time-saving services predicts greater happiness, reduces stress. Not because of the objective amount of time that we saved just to the simple act of thinking about giving up money to have more free time seems to make people plan their time a little bit better. If I'm going to incur this cost to have this free time, then I'm going to make sure I really enjoy the free time that I have. What do you make the argument though, that that future's uncertain and financial security or your financial future is often uncertain too? And so I guess some of the way we've been trained to think about time versus money as that like if you have time now and can make money you need to save. So that in the future when you're not working you have money to spend. Yeah. And I mean people who feel uncertain about their financial future or more likely to value money, and they get more thought his faction out of having that value. And that makes a lot of sense. If you're not sure what you're next five. Six seven years are your overarching goal in life should be Develey money. So that you can feel like your future is secure and safe much to what you're saying. And and I don't argue that that doesn't mean we shouldn't also be thinking around the margins of whether within our discretionary income bucket within the set of money that we spend in in ways that in. Enable us to enjoy our life that we shouldn't also be thinking about saving time. So that's why make the point. And my clobbered resign often argue that we need to be thinking about every time we open our wallet. What is to make a purchase discretionary income purchase? Is this money? Changing the way that I spend my time. What's one way that you have trained yourself to spend money on other things where maybe was counterintuitive of I, but really makes make sense when you value time correctly, you know, going through grad school, you have no time and no money, and you're constantly trying to cut corners in every way that you can and one thing that I did throw all of graduate school was live really far away from my place of employment. I would spend hours on the bus every single day for five years because it was cheaper. I could live in an of slightly bigger apartment with my partner. And I you save money that way. You know? And so when I moved for my my job, I had this intuition. This really strong sense that I should do the same thing should live in the most economical place, even if it's a little bit further away, and I really had to push against sort of every instinct that was saying, but think about how much money you can save in rent like just written his massive dissertation on the fact that we should value time over money, but we always get it wrong. When making major minor life decisions that I was like, okay. Actually like, you can do it. You can pay a lot of money in rent and live really close to work. So you can walk there. You're going to be new. It's going to be stressful. You have a million things to do. And that was one thing that I did recently. And I think it's added a lot of happiness to my life and really reduce stress. I walked to the office. I can walk. Everything's walking distance to my house. I feel like a lot of my behavior. Does come from. How I you know, I lived coming out of school. From a time when I had more time than money, and then just got used to doing everything myself. And there's also the kind of the American self reliance thing just being able to take care of household chores do things without having to hire somebody to do it. I think I know I I think this is part of the reason we see the effects that we see. So I have a another line of research with Laura park at the university of buffalo, and we look at how experiences in childhood around how much money you had and how how much income inequality. There wasn't an a place where you grew up shapes the way that adults think about their finances and make decisions, you know, fifteen twenty years later, and we do see that growing up in a more uncertain financial environment carries all the way through to adult hood. You know, doesn't Volvo a little bit of retraining again. I really want to return to this idea. That's about taking small act. Actions not doing anything to drastic but just sitting down and thinking about whether there's anything you can outsource that. You really don't like that stresses you out a lot that you can afford. And if there's anything on a daily basis that the answer to that question is yes, you should try it out try spending, some discretionary income that way, you know, other small ways I can be more efficient that I can give up some of my money to have more time direct flights grocery deliveries to my house. Not all the time. Not outsource everything. We show in our data that people who outsource too much experienced the lowest levels of happiness in part, probably because again, they feel like their their life must be so out of control. If they can't you know, if they can't even do one load of laundry on the weekend. So I think you also raise an important point. And we find this in our data. We wanna seem self sufficient one reason that we don't ask for help enough that we don't outsource enough even. When we're paying our hard earned money for someone else's time. As we want to feel like we can do it all especially in North American culture. We have this idea that we're a failure. If somehow we can't have their perfect home
Vikings, Benjamin Franklin And Columbus discussed on PrimeTime Sports with Cory Lopez
"Theory. This is the government telling you telling us, it's the fourth warmest year, globally, the fourth warmest year globally. I thought it was just nationally. But it's globally. They'll tell me. Only on record on record. Now, I don't know whether or not the caveman kept records, in fact, I don't even know whether or not well, I think Benjamin Franklin probably kept records. So maybe I should be careful about whether the founders kept records, but you suppose the Vikings coming across do you think Columbus? Oh, he was a racist bastard. Anyway. Right. So we can't count Columbus. Do you think the native Americans? We'll maybe they did maybe they're teepee somewhere. They they put down hot cold winter summer. Well, let's wintertime's what's cold summertime. So it's hot maybe keep records. Who knows I challenge? Anybody to tell me one what the perfect temperature of the earth is supposed to be and to who says that the the warmest for the fourth fourth year in a row.

Walls, aren't the only thing you need technology, you need boots on the ground all sorts of other tools, but walls, the critical point in intercepting someone crossing over illegally. Is the time between detection. Interception. And what a wall does is slows down the traffickers to give the border patrol time. Intercepted. And by the way, we've seen it over and over again at San Diego when they built the wall the illegal traffic plummeted in El Paso when they built the wall the traffic plummeted. But now the Democrats their position it's not substantive. They voted for three hundred fifty miles a wall. So why are they shutting the government down over two hundred and thirty four miles at wall. It's not substantive. It's political. Okay. We get they hate Donald Trump. If anyone in America had missed that point that they really really really don't like this, man. There yelling and screaming, and we has made that a bundle clear. But just because you hate somebody. Doesn't mean you should shut the government down. I voted to keep this government open right now today, the Democrats are filibustering funding for the government. Let me tell you something else. A Senator from Colorado in dispute we had a whole colloquy with a Senator from Louisiana. The Senator from Mississippi the Senator for the last about funding, the coastguard did you notice? Madam President in that entire. Bellowing speech. The words coastguard whenever uttered. Not once. What Senator Kennedy asked this body to do was pass a clean Bill to pay the paychecks of the coast guard Senator Kennedy's Bill? Does it mention whether you like what are not mentioned in medieval wall or any other kind of? Well, it's simply says pay the coastguard. Yes. No. Every Republican agrees pay the coast guard right now, it's not fair to treat the coastguard differently than we're treating the army and navy and marines and air force. Senator from Colorado didn't address that. Because it is indisputable is the fact that the reason that didn't pass right now. Is because the democratic leader stood up and Nate an objection. And by implication, every democratic Senator presumably agrees with the fact that the Senator from Colorado didn't say, yes, we should fund the coastguard, and you know, what my leader was wrong. When he held the paychecks of the coast guard men and women hostage. Because he wants to win a political fight with the president. And by the way, I would note to the Senator of Colorado. It's not the end of the world to stand up to your party's leader. Some of us have a history of having done. So in the past. We're now in the longest government shutdown in history shutdown needs to end the American people want it to end. We also need to secure the border. And Madam President. I have to say the contrast between the two parties, it could not be clear. The president has repeatedly said he wants to negotiate and he wants to compromise. He said he's willing to meet in the middle. He hasn't insisted on. Every mile a border wall. He asked for he hasn't insisted on every single dollar a border security. He said, let's meet and compromise. Republicans on this side of the chamber of said, let's compromise in the middle and the position of Senate Democrats, they will not negotiate. They will not compromise period. So their position how many miles of wall can be built zero to one yet. When it comes to negotiating their position is not an inch of law can be built, even though we the Democrats already voted for three hundred and fifty miles out why. Because Donald Trump's president. That is an extreme and radical position. And look I understand folks watching at home, it's hard to tell you. You're reading the news. It seems like both parties are bickering. It's hard to tell what's happening, particularly because on the on the Senate floor. There's a lot of procedural mumbo jumbo. If you wanna understand what's going on the exchange between Senator Kennedy and Senator Schumer illustrates at all. Senator Kennedy's building one thing. And one thing only paid the salaries of the men and women of the coast guard it didn't touch any other issue. Every Republican agrees with that Bill. And the Democrats objected and said we will not pay the Goa coast guard had they not objective. We could put that Bill on the president's desk today, and they could get their paychecks right now. That is emblematic of the approach of Senate Democrats. And so. The Senator from Colorado. Stopped screaming at me. He then engaged in a bit of historical retrospective, Ted Cruz of Texas about the great framers of our constitution. That I enjoy it. Then that I very much agree with. I'm someone who's spent a lifetime devoted to the constitution. I am inspired by the framers who gave us this extraordinary Democratic Republic. The Senator from Colorado called for members of this body to aspire. To be more. Like this men and women that gave us this country gave us this Republic. If you can keep it. Benjamin Franklin put it. And I concur with that. And what I would urge the Senator from Colorado. Is to reach out to his democratic colleagues and council compromise. I am urging my colleagues on this side to do the same. And the difference is the Republicans are willing to compromise have offered to compromise. And in fact, just now sought to pay the coastguard and the democratic position is no, no, no we object. That is partisan. It is extreme. And it is not behavior. That would bring pride to the framers of our constitution. I hope that this body can do better. Senator from Colorado democrat, Michael Bennet, Texas for having this conversation. I don't think I was yelling. But I'll go watch the taper screaming at you. I also have never call anybody on this floor a liar. As you did somebody twenty fifteen on this floor, but the ethics of all of this. But I just wanted to say two things one. I appreciate the fact that you at least seem to be accepting the fact that every democrat who is here on that immigration Bill twenty thirteen voted for voted for the three hundred fifty miles of all that you're talking about. You didn't vote for that Bill or the Senator from Texas didn't vote for that Bill Nye soom, you had your reasons by the way, I wouldn't presume to think what you would think about it as a border as a person from border state. I say stop far from the border. And we see the effects ill real for good immigration in my state. But I do know this there were two senators from a border state. State of Arizona who were on that gang Bill. With whom I sat day after day after day negotiating the provision for months, and they didn't have to just. Vote for the Bill we're against it. But they had to go home to Arizona. John McCain and Jeff flake didn't explain why they support. And why was the right thing to do for Zona? Which is a Senator from Texas knows is a border state. So the idea that there's a problem to be solved here because Democrats in this chamber for open borders is false. As the Senator indicated. The second point is. Senator from Texas reference. Ben Franklin Franklin was standing outside the steps of constitution hall and somebody who was passing by this while they're writing constitution. Said mr. Mr. Franklin, what kind of government, are you creating a monarchy or Republic? That was the question. And is a Senator Cruz has said his answer was a Republican if you can keep it. If you can keep it. His injury was not a Republican. It was a Republic if you can keep it. Because he knew that the words written in the constitution. We're going to preserve themselves. Exercising democratic self government. A Democratic Republic. Would require generations. Of women and men not just in this chamber. But as citizens. And

Like if you have to check a box when you brush your teeth. I think I've gone too far. You miss the signs. Yeah. You missed your turn off. Yeah. You must be exit. But but routine is there's bliss in routine, and I think routine is meditation. You know, there is so, you know, people talk about like hacking your mind, body, whatever I think the or the only true hack that I have found is routines. And like, I relate it to the fact that I could have a full conversation. Chew gum, do whatever. While I tie my shoes because I don't I literally do not use my brain to do this. And whenever you can put something in your life into autopilot like that like it's like a cheat code. Yeah. So there's this thing that he drew it starts from five AM and ends at four AM.

So he went to bed early, of course. And I don't know what time he went. He went to sleep when the sun went down. Yeah. And what's interesting is he doesn't sleep that long. If you look at this.

That he said that NBA Email or Twitter time time travel. Oh time travel. Yeah. So today we're talking about how to be like Benjamin Franklin. Turns out he's he was a pretty wicked awesome guy. Yeah. I read his biography by Walter Isaacson, which I think is like the biography master, he gets all the good ones. Yeah. He does get all the good ones or picks. Other good ones. We'll actually Steve Jobs went to him. And we're like, you're my body Griffey. I liked the beginning of it. And then as soon as he got into the politics, I was like. This is news fast for me for me. But his early life is I mean fascinating like, he was certainly doer. And we're going to talk about all of those things. So let's let's get into some of the things because like his he has got a lot of principles that we can sort of relate to personal finance. Should I read this thing right here that says life isn't a game of intelligence? It's a game of wisdom Benjamin Franklin may have been one of the wisest men that existed. Well ahead of his time. And that is certainly true. I I would say don't read the all right? Well, I just did. So. I was I just kind of right? Like what the owners of the episode, and it was this. There was interesting thing I was reading where someone were so every year or most many years Warren Buffett does thing where you can. Bid to get lunch with him. And then he, and then he donates to charity, and this guy, you know, asked him during lunch like who would you like to meet, and he was like Isaac Newton because he was the smartest guy. Yeah. Like possibly ever or are. So also, also reclose right? I mean to get all that stuff done. You can't really talk, right and work, right? And throwing apples in the air. That's right. And then like Warren Buffett was like, you know, and Benjamin Franklin, and he was like he thinks he's was the wisest person. Yeah. That that he knows of and after looking through some of his stuff like he certainly was wise beyond his times. Yes. There's certainly a lot to get from the from the biography. And very responsible with his money and a businessman, a hard worker and a politician a renaissance man, and we're gonna talk about some of the virtues and core principles that he lived his life by and see what we can gain from that in our two thousand nineteen existence from his hailing from the future, you could even maybe gleaned something in twenty twenty. Yeah. And he loved fucking prostitutes over in France, baby. No, no that one. We're not getting into that part of his life. Well. Infidelity ranch strong in that one. So let's let's right aside from that part of his life. Let's take some principles this first one is accept full responsibility for your life. And what do you what is what did he meet? What do you think he meant by that? So so he was born a poor, man. Yeah. His family was not wealthy. And he he made a ton out of himself because he he could've walled in the fact that like, you know, he was born with such terrible circumstances terrible. But you never money, and whatever I took responsibility and made something of himself. And oftentimes.

Oh, yes. She says, no problem. Sure thing and who is our liar. I think it's shared. Share is our liar because she didn't know the answer to a lot of questions and one of the questions that ask her answer was most definitely to remember which was where Ben Franklin went to call him. And you thought that and that was wrong you thought, okay? We'll the true actual expert. Please let us know who you are. Hello. Correct. Kris cookie. Oh is Ben Franklin reenactor and owner of his own company the Philly official guide in old city Philadelphia? Philly OG the Philly. Oh, gee, sorry. Let's do some fact checking Chris was there anything that Sherry said that you could point out that was a lie. Yeah. The Harvard thing most definitely lie. Says he didn't go he founded the university of Pennsylvania. The other thing the vegetarian he was a vegetarian occasionally throughout his life. But there are times where he was hungry, you're hungry. You're not a vegetative vegetarian until I have a hamburger fried fish Terry until I have chicken nuggets exactly vegetarian till I have lemonade. That's not I put baking. Were there? Other lives at cherry told V other thing the organization he is actually terribly organized. He was not guys at all the planner was the health actually stay because you know, we call them jack-of-all-trades. But nowadays, it's ADD like he literally was all over the place. And so he needed it to structure himself a little bit more. And that's why there is a Franklin planner interesting, and Sherry what other lives did you share with us today? He did not as far as I know. Invent the shoehorn or the hot air balloon o-. Warn. You did. Okay. Thank you didn't invent the hot air balloon does. Oh, this show in that sounds like something he could have been. He did. And he just didn't tell us would've told us. Well, I thought everybody did a great job, Mattie. You figured it out.

"But he was just very. Responsible about keeping a daily schedule. So Chris a few Ben Franklin now and ask him one question. Only one. What would it be boy? So Ben, what do you think it has it feels to be on one hundred dollar Bill? They're serious noise alike. That's what he sounds like. The way I do him. Let's hear yours. Hi. I'm Ben Franklin. You don't know me? And that's cool. Ben Franklin's say what's a robot? Lisa. Should it invented them? On the two hundred dollar boo. Two hundred dollar Bill. Oh, I've been to right, Sherry where did Ben Franklin go to college? He actually attended Harvard. He got his degree. They're sharing. What advice would you give me? If I was to do the job that you do. Well, that's interesting because it's about teaching people time management. So it's really about getting people to think in a different way than there used to and that's really hard. So I think you have to get you have to sort of put yourself in the mindset of another person, it's a little bit of psychology. It's a little bit of practicality. I think you have to be really patient. So Chris what kind of training did you do in order to do your job was very much on the spot training? So I've been a tour guide for eight years, and essentially I would walk around at anytime. Anybody had a question that I could not answer. My the whole training was I had to then go and look it up. I would tell them. I do not know that I go on learn that or the answer to that question. So the next time I wouldn't get stumped. So it's basically eight years of not knowing the answer and learning on the spot. Okay. So Sherry true or false. Was Ben Franklin vegetarian? You know? I actually don't know that. I mean, he did believe in having a healthy diet and taking care of yourself. But you got me there. What are three of Ben Franklin's most famous inventions just off the top of your head the three most famous. I mean, not necessarily the three most famous, but what are three of his vengeance. You can sink of just right now. Well, there's the ones that you only want three. There's so many good ones smoothies this cats. No, those are all true. No. I mean, he's known for bifocals and the lightning rod. But I think a lot of people don't know about he invented his own alphabet. He invented the hot air balloon and shoehorn because he was sick of wrestling with his boots. And you know, he's all about saving time. So wow saves time. I think we also need Chris. Did you say you a reenactor? And so you reenact just by saying, hi, I'm Ben Franklin, or is there something else that you do. Oh, yes. So I am young Ben Franklin, and I walk around speaking first person as Ben Franklin than also on my tour. I rap for a half the tour. So this would be from my rap called the doctor. And so this is about Ben Franklin and the lightning experiments, so he he did our electricity experiments beforehand, and this is where he makes the connection to lightning after a few experiments. I was like there might be similarities between this electronic. I mean, lightning has the same jagged direction both produce loud. Sound bright light he can convict. And so well published an experiment that tested. Out that theory attack in key ring to a hamstring. I through the end the storm the genius and produced the spot. That said the hypothesized.
