Beyonce's Album Has Been a Disaster
"Beyoncé's album has been a disaster. As of last week, the album sold just 475,000 copies according to illuminate and hit daily double and sales are down a whopping 74%. Renaissance has scored just one hit single with a song called break my soul. And that song now sits at number 15 on iTunes, there's a remix with Madonna that shit out at number 55 and now Beyoncé is going to try a new single next week. But I'm telling you, her ship has kind of sailed. She's got to go back to doing what she did best. The problem she has is obvious to me. She has a voice that should be soaring over radio stations all day long. But I think her choice of material is terrible.

"Baby for me, what I hope to see is I hope we see big Frida who has collaborated with Beyoncé before on formation. That's her voice you can hear in the video. But we don't see her. And she's been asked about this many times in interviews about not appearing physically in the videos for that and also for Drake's nice for what, where she's also sampled. And she's very much like, look, if you hear my voice, you can Google me, I'm fine with it. But I would love to actually see her in that video. I would love to see someone like Leo me, one of the Vogue legends dancing, I can see it already in these videos. I'm hoping as much as this is a celebration of black queer music. We get to actually see black queer people. We are so privileged. And so lucky to live in the era of real-time Beyoncé. We are so blessed. And this album is just an example of that. Yes, let the church say amen. Amen. Well, obviously we really, really enjoyed this album and we are still chewing on it and dancing to it and enjoying it. We want to know what you think about Beyoncé's renaissance. You can find us at Facebook dot com slash PCH and on Twitter at PCH. That brings us to the end of our show.

"Heated gives you like mind feels and like you know so I feel like she's trying to make a record that like you said that we can easily incorporate into our lives. It's not a challenging album musically. It's more something that feels very comfortable off the bat, which is different from what she did with lemonade and self titled. You know, cell title has a lot of stuff that people really had to grow into. Same thing with lemonade. It's like, you know, that whole James Blake track, people like, why is this white man singing all on this Beyoncé's arm? But you know what this feels. I like very comfortable and at home from jump. And I think that's intentional. Yeah. Yeah, and I wanted to say, we have this album and we're inside, you know? Break my soul. She says, you know, we outside. And it's like, not quite, you know, we're not quite there yet. And but I do feel like this album has a lot of staying power. And I'm very excited to see a tour for this album. I'm very excited to see what this album becomes when it's out in the free world. And I feel like there's just so much joy and celebration in it. And she's always been very forward thinking, always very prescient in a way. And I feel like this is another moment where we're seeing that happen. And especially because I feel like in recent years, we've had albums come out and they come and go very quickly. And people are quick to be very cynical about certain aspects of albums. And I feel like with this just being online and on Twitter and things like that, people are loving this album, like almost totally. And it's like one of the rare moments where this has happened in recent years. And I feel like that has so much to do with the work that she put into it and the fact that she's working with the music she's working with the history and she's living and breathing with it. And that's like the key I feel to this album being so beautiful, so bombastic, so successful. Thus far. But yeah, I'm very excited to hear how this album transcends time. And you know the kind of jump on that and thinking about how she's always playing to our time. I think during the pandemic because we so inside, you know, most of the time, I think it's also been a time of people's individual creativity flourishing. I think that's how TikTok has become so popular during that time. And I think that's why she hasn't yet released any visuals for the album. Yeah. It's because she's saw that you can drop a song at midnight on Friday morning and by that afternoon, somebody's gonna have a whole little TikTok routine to it. And you know, it's gonna be a whole thing. So I think she was probably sitting back and watching that and going, wow, let me let people do their own thing to it first before I get in with my choreography and my looks and kind of over determine how things are supposed to be. Let me let people play with this almost and see what comes up with. And I think that's absolutely brilliant, I think it's generous and it's just another way that Beyoncé continues to challenge us as an audience but also to try to feed our inner souls and our creativity and everything like that. She always seeks to inspire. And I think by not having the visuals initially. That's another way that she's inspiring people to really get in touch with their creativity and think about like, what do you see when you listen to church girl? What do you imagine an alien superstar to look like? You know, just all of those kinds of things. I think

"You gonna I mean, what do you think about we've had all these conversations about dance music and Craig, you've written about this extensively and talked about how dance music and club music, it's never really gone away, but everyone's in a while major artists will bring it back. And what do you make of this moment and why now? Yeah, I mean, I think it's perfect now in so many ways that are sort of intentional in terms of since we were in lockdown and everything people do need a release and dance music provides a release. But it's also really weird in that the disco era really coincided with the rise of the religious right. And there were a lot of attacks against gay people against integrated spaces and all of that stuff at the time that the whole world was dancing. And so it just really seems weird to me that we are having this club music renaissance at the same time that we're seeing the rollback of abortion rights. At the same time, we're seeing all of these voter suppression efforts at the same time. People can't even have their kids get waved at sesame place. All of this got the stuff is going down. Again, I think Beyoncé hits the zeitgeist and offers us really provocative ways to look at other things that are going on in the culture because as she says, America got a problem, right? As someone who is very steeped in black culture of all iterations, of course I have like influential knowledge of certain aspects of certain genres, but as a whole like house dance music, I'm a hip hop girl, like there are certain parts of those that go together, but overall I'm still learning a lot about it. And I feel like I was still able to rock right into this. And it was not a big learning curve for me in order to understand certain things I've been doing a lot of reading a lot of research and the more I learn about it, the more I'm like living so much more full and so much more in my purpose because I feel like had I known some of this stuff a little bit earlier. I would have been much more confident in myself as someone who does identify as queer. So I'm learning as I go and Beyoncé is holding my hand along the way and I appreciate her for that. I was born in 1968, so I was there when rappers delight came out and everything like that. And as a gay man, I was one of the, you know, most of my friends really weren't listening to hip hop that I was rocking as much with the public enemy cassettes and MC light cassettes and stuff as I was with house music and you know there was a lot of anger in house music because in some elements of it because it was a response to reaganomics to aids and to all of that kind of stuff. And that was particularly expressed through the drag queens on what were called bits tracks. You know, I think there's a big continuity between the anger that you see that you hear in some early hip hop and the sort of aggression that you hear on so called bitch tracks that Beyoncé does sample

"Joining me today is writer kiana Fitzgerald. Welcome back Keanu. Thank you so much for having me. Yeah, it's great to have you. Also with us, making his pop culture happy hour debut is music and cultural critic Craig Seymour, welcome Craig. Hey, thanks for having me. It's such an honor. Yes. Such an honor on our end as well. So renaissance is Beyoncé's first solo studio album since 20 16s lemonade, but she's obviously been busy the last 6 years. She gave us the homecoming concert at Coachella, plus two other major projects, the album, everything is love, her collaboration with husband Jay-Z, and a soundtrack and visual album to accompany the 2019 remake of The Lion King. Now her new album renaissance man 16 tracks in multiple decades of musical influences. The list of collaborators is so long, it includes go to producer the dream, now Rogers, Grace Jones, big Frida, Thames, and Sid, and the stylistic interpolations and samples aren't in abundance too. You've got Robin S's 90s house banger show me love, of course, but also the late great Tina Marie, ballroom DJ Mike Q, and gospel legends, the Clark sisters. Those are just a few of the many names that are dropped within this album. Now, it's being marketed by her team as act one of a three act project. And we're recording this Monday morning. So as of this taping, we have no clue what else awaits us in the renaissance era, though we'll all be eagerly watching for it. I'm sure. Keanu, let's start with you. What are your first thoughts we've had this marinating for a few days over the weekend. So how do you feel about renaissance? I feel amazing about it. I have not stopped listening to this, and even when I had to stop listening, I kept thinking about it over and over. I can't wait to hear this again. I just feel like as soon as the album opens and you hear the sample of these MFs ain't stopping me. I was like, oh, here we go. This is what we're in for. This is it. I'll pull it up in these clothes. Look so good. You know, she just sounds so comfortable on this album. She sounds so steeped in her influences. So just like she's reveling in her abilities. And I feel like this is Beyoncé in her peak form. It's an immersive experience that it's like one continuous listening party. And the term disco trap I feel is super appropriate for this album because it has those influences and it also has like trap beats. I hear a lot of hip hop influences in this album, obviously, from her husband Jay-Z, but also from Houston, which is her hometown. And I want to say that I am a Beyoncé Stan up and down. And I love her history. But I also am still becoming familiar with some of the influences on this album. So I'm so glad to be here alongside Craig. And I'd love to hear his thoughts. I'm right there with you. Now Craig, you have a very long history, both not just with black music and black female artists, but Destiny's Child and Beyoncé in particular you've been covering Beyoncé since the beginning. So how do you feel about this moment that she's having with renaissance? I feel like this is an incredible expression of personal expression, but what she does so well is that it also connects with a collective feeling, one thing that strikes me so deeply is that it's a tribute to her late uncle, her gay uncle Johnny, who passed away of aids. I think sometime in the early 2000s, because she mentioned him during an awards show that he passed away with years earlier. And it made me think about how during the pandemic so many of us were forced to deal with emotions that we didn't hadn't necessarily dealt with in just the everyday 9 to 5, getting that money, all that kind of stuff. But when everything stopped, a lot of us found ourselves dealing with memories, grief, all sorts of things that we thought we had either buried or dealt with and everything. So it seemed to me completely appropriate that at this moment and her career has just been going nonstop since that era. It seems appropriate for me that in that moment of the world stopping, you know, suddenly he came to mind and suddenly she started thinking about the music that he used to play and think about the larger context of gay culture. And so it just seemed so organic to me in the way that it speaks to a specific time, but it also speaks to our collective experience a lot of the things that we went through during the pandemic. Yeah, yeah. And it's a jam. And it's a gym. The whole thing, I guess, is just like, I'm still at the point of like, even though I've listened to it a million times and had written reviews on it, I can't necessarily say other than church girl, which is just like, you know, I could just fall to the floor in tears of that record. It's still sounds like one song to me. I don't always know. Like, what's that part? When did she say that? What's that line? Sometimes I don't know. So it's still kind of a continuous thing for me. Right. I mean, that's actually a point I wanted to bring up because probably one of my favorite things, if not the favorite thing for me for this album, are the transitions. They're so seamless. When break my soul was released, the first time I heard I was like, okay, this is cute. I hear the ravenous. I hear it, but I was wanting more, I think, from her vocals because when you hear that song, you think of show me love, show me love is a powerhouse song. And so Beyoncé kind of lays back on it and grooves with it, but she doesn't quite attack it in the way that Robin S attacks show me love. And I should very much clarify that. It's an interpolation. It's not a direct sample of that song, but obviously she was meant to invoke that song. And then I heard break my soul during pride and SF and I got it. I understood. But then to hear that song on the album, it's a whole new level. I actually want to play the transition that happens into break by soul. It starts with energy, which is such, oh, it's such a good dance hall, Afro beat, song, that movie's right into break my soul. And the transition is just so fantastic. He also hear big free to enter in right before. Let's just play it. I love it. Take off the screen. It's masterful, and I love the way that she's doing that throughout a lot of the album. It also feels like she purposely every song is purposely sort of tracked through. And I kept when I was listening to it over and over. I kept thinking to myself, oh, okay, so this is like when you're first getting to the party, all right? You've got coffee, you've got cozy, you've got alien superstar. It's like the early part of the night when you're on the dance floor. And then as you keep going at one point, you get into church girl, and it's like, okay, we're getting down. We're getting down. I say not popping like a body popping like to start it. He said I dropped it like a thought he drop it like a body. Church girls acting loose bad girl I'm just not even let it go girl. And then later on it gets a little bit darker, like it starts to feel like, oh, it's 2 a.m.. It's 3 a.m. and you're like, you've been dancing for a while, but you're still going. And I love the way it just kind of flows like that. And then at the end with summer renaissance, it's just like, okay, we're letting it all just go and melt away. And I think that's just, she made a dance album. Make it take my name I'm gonna spouse you and make you tattoo I'm gonna take you all the way baby can I take you all night and you sexy motherfucker boy
Songwriting Legend Diane Warren Shot Down for Having a Good Question
"So Diane Lauren decides to weigh in on this whole renaissance nonsense. I'm so glad she did because she brought something up that really needs to be discussed. Diane Warren prolific songwriter has worked with Beyoncé before. The song I was here, she wrote that for Beyoncé, but because she spoke up, members of Beyoncé's beehive just, you know, they don't think she's anybody. They think she's some out of touch white lady who doesn't understand the songwriting process. No, because she's probably the best of all time, assholes. But you know, she rightfully questioned why in God's name on the 25 writers on one of Beyoncé's tracks. This is the first time that's happened. Beyoncé's known for crazy. Remember, her daughter Blue Ivy got a producer credit? And it was basically up for a Grammy at like four years old, whatever the fuck? The song they're talking about. I'm done. There's something to answer. It's called alien superstar. It's basically Beyoncé bragging about how she's the best and all you are the hose need to get out of her way, standing stuff from Beyoncé lately. Now, Beyoncé has got a super producer called the dream, he had the response back to Diane on Twitter, and he made it racial in a nanosecond. For no reason. He wrote back to Diane, you mean how does all black culture have so many writers? Well, it started because we couldn't afford certain things thought. Now, so we started sampling and it became an art form. A major part of the black culture in America had that era not happened. Who knows? You good? This tweet is filled with grammatical errors and bad spelling. Just 5th grade level of correspondence. Not that it matters. The guy's got 25, 30 million in the bank, but still. And then this little condescending prick goes further. He says, I know it's not a one on one songwriting contest. You looking far from no one over here. You don't want that smoke. And you know I love you, but come on, stop acting like your records haven't been sampled. Then of course, all white lady gets very scared of said black man and has to bow down because, you know, we can't, you can't go toe to toe with anybody that's not white. It's racist. So the end bows down. I didn't mean that as an attack or as disrespect. I didn't know this. Thank you for making me aware of it. No need to be mean. I meant under suspected Beyoncé, I work with it before. I admire her. I'm sorry for the missing the standing. Have a backbone, Diane Warren.
Beyonce's New Album Is Causing Controversy
"Her latest album is called renaissance. It's the first one she's released since lemonade. Remember that hoopla 6 years ago? It's causing quite a stir in the business. Remember she's saying in the Super Bowl? Oh my God. A lot of shit in the business now because of this album. A couple of singles were secretly released. I don't believe that for a second. I'm sure it was coordinated without her consent. Yeah, sure. She knew what was going on. Another pop star, kelis, and the police, my milkshake brings all the boys to the yard and they're like, it's better than yours, right? That's kelis. Kelis went on Instagram to give Beyoncé some shit. 'cause her album has 16 tracks and it pays homage to dance music and she samples some iconic hits from Donna Summer and Robin S, Robin S recently said she was thrilled to have a work included. But now everybody's thrilled. Apparently, kelis is not thrilled because milkshake was incorporated to Beyoncé's album on the 5th track called energy. So now she's speaking out to claim that the song was used without her permission. And without getting too in the weeds, let me just say the production duo of Pharrell Williams because I'm happy and if you feel all right, Pharrell Williams and his partner Chad Hugo, they're known as the neptunes. They're listed as two riders of milkshake, which was released back in 2003, and kelis is credited as a sole performer. So she and the neptunes have a long and complicated history. We don't need to know that. They worked on a first three albums in 99, 2001, 2003. Who even knew, kelis has three albums. I didn't know. But either way, it's not my world. But according to new track credits for energy that you see on Spotify and Apple music, both Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo are listed among the numerous co writers on the song while kelis goes on mentioned. And despite not being listed in the song's credits, her involvement in renaissance was teased earlier last week after Beyoncé released an official track list naming the artists set to be sampled in each song and as a fan account on Instagram that put up the list, she repulsed the list of Beyoncé put out. And that got a response from kelis, who said that this was the first time she'd heard that her work was being used on Beyoncé's album. And she wrote in response to this fan, it's not a collaboration. It's theft. So right away, shots fired. And kelis went on to say, my mind is blown because the level of disrespect and utter ignorance of all three parties involved is astounding.

Why the African-American Community Needs More Accountibility
"But I wish that celebrity black leaders would it's weird to me. Oprah, Jay-Z, Beyoncé, all these people who are billionaires. Why don't they push and spend all of their time challenging and helping black people in the black community? Because all this pointing to finger at the white man ain't never done what is that done for you? Nothing. You could tell these young people, hey man, pull your pants up. Hey, and don't walk around like that. You know, act like you got some sense. If you want people to treat you, right? Then you gotta act right. If you want people to treat you with respect, you need to respect yourself. If you want the white man to respect you, you need to respect your Why are you killing your brother? Why are you out here dogging at your brother? Why are you dogging your sister? You claim you love black women and you out here cheating on them and trying to do all kinds of stuff to them. No loyalty, leave them single with your kid. Don't go see the kid. Don't talk about white people if you ain't addressing that. And it's not just for black people, 'cause I know people always getting their feelings when I say stuff. You always talk about black people. You always tell me, I'm talking about people in general. I just so happened to be black my whole life. And also happened to grow up in a black community. So I don't know what white people be doing. I'm just giving my own personal experience from the things that I've seen.

Tina Knowles Lights up Bey's Critics Over Wearing a Blood Diamond
"Let's jump to Beyoncé's mom. Isn't she a meme looking what a mean looking woman? She looks like Cruella de Vil. Like she should get the next movie. Forget Emma Stone. Let 15 anoles be Cruella de Vil. Nasty looking woman. So she's all men in there. She's all nasty and mad. At people who've turned against her daughter, you know, Beyoncé has a Tiffany campaign. There's a big controversy about whether or not the one she's wearing is a blood diamond. Many of these celebrities listen to me. I'm telling you, many of them have had blood diamonds. I'll tell you that story with my buddy was banging Naomi Campbell. She got one presented to her on a big plane, a big party. She put it in the hotel safe. They don't feel funny about it. They really don't. So Tina Knowles goes on Instagram and goes off on everybody. All you socially conscious activists who called out bay for wearing the famous 128 and a half carat Tiffany diamond, which is from a colonial mine in kimberley, South Africa. If you haven't heard, Beyoncé is the fourth woman to wear this big diamond. First black woman, so of course we got a big controversy. You know, it's a whole thing. Jay-Z's in the end. They look awful. I'm sorry, but Jay-Z's gotta get rid of the farina hair. He looks like a little rascal. It looks like I wish I had a watermelon. You gotta stop it. Get it all, it doesn't look, it's not becoming. I know the guy's smart and he's a businessman and I'm not trying to be racist. It looks awful and childish. Man's close to 50. So apparently Beyoncé didn't know there was a blood diamond. So the question was, was Beyoncé tricked by Tiffany into wearing it in the ad? You know, Beyoncé is saying she's pissing at the heads up. I don't believe in word

I think both is is I to albums both got nominated for the mercury is first. Album is just early an an as caught, and he's one of those is discounting talented experimental in some ways. He's GonNa lie I. I was thinking. The and this is not the right comparison, but I think I know what I mean said is kind of like me. The British Bon iver. Except you didn't fuck off to a? Low Hot in the middle of nowhere and record an album, but. As. The saw is a guy that a lot of these a lot of these performers and won a record with I think he's done stuff with Kanye some stuff Jay Z. be on say they will want to do some in. It's an literally. It's a bit so blink, and you miss his his. This. But I've always loved. I'll always love the pure surveys of his voice, and it's quite it's quite spiritual, and and you know there's light at the end of the tunnel. That's the general feeling. Is that right? We're looking ahead NI- where we're GONNA go to. Journey is why I'm. We're focused on getting. You know it's. It's the turning point of the album and her relationship for me I! Think at the end of six inch there was definitely a shift in a movement In feeling and emotion and the think, this one is a change in mindset. This is the feeling this is the mindset change from. In order to move forward. What have we got to do? does contin references to it. James Blake. Told pitchfork hell. The collaboration came about and apparently beyond came to the studio. Who's just sitting at the piano? And He came up with somebody to go with an idea that she had and she embellished. The idea was to use some of her lyrics broad didn't realize that are misunderstood, and did something entirely different from what she wanted. But it doesn't matter because you really liked it. And they ended up using mortgage and so What's really interesting as well with this? With this song is that in the visual accompaniment which is taught resurrection actually on this chapter chapter on. Quite. Fitting for this chapter and beyond say uses a number of prominent. Mothers of the Movement and she teaches women's such as when wanted to Johnson. gwen costs brain, a Fulton and Leslie McFadden who the. Oscar grant. Eric Ghana Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown respectively. and these mothers against the movement against police, brutality and injustice their activism is I started black lives, matter and And put a lot of that. Pine into purpose and it's it's quite confronting when you when you say these mothers images of their sons, and again this is not just a relationship about moving forward, and beyond says relationship, but it's a water. It's a water message about. How everyone can move forward. Yeah correct, and all of that ninety seconds..

I'm listened to all of the owners into a couple of them. But you realize like the the depth of it beyond the surface. What else is going on I think pray you catch me great opener, and I sit you earlier in the week. Right she saw ends the song by saying. What are you doing, my love and it just like for me. It's just always a goose bump moment the way she sort of whispers it. You know so despite her in Jewish in and despite what she knows is probably the case in terms of his. His infidelity, she still like what are you doing? My Love? What the fuck is going on Mrs, not you. Why are you doing it for thing? And then you immediately roll into track to which is which is hold up, which is which is just you know a great Salman is starts the the second chapter, which is denial, right and this is the music video I'm talking about what she's walking down the street with a baseball bat, looking super glamorous, smiling very happy unlike. Bash initiates ships out things with a baseball bat doesn't dot like that though it starts so. What happens, is chapter one? You catch me in intuition? Finishes with her. On a Like Jesus on on across the top of the Who Do you off revealing her naturally think beyonce is being criticized in the Pasta Not being black enough hoping a lot skinned black person, and and changing her hair to stu, taste and stuff like that and. Hey throughout this film. Is really interesting. I feel that beyond. Say Mike Sustainment with her hair. In every individual song reflects her mood.

Go I'm good at my fiance's on top of the visual imagery finishes with this song as the top of this building, and she falls, and she's twirling toiling in twelve, and then she says where my love she crashes into like the concrete belie-, but actually water and water is a common theme throughout the visual illness album, and it's almost like a aboutism already birth of sorts and then she she wakes up and and you again are. These when when she's wearing these yellow dress, it's it's reminiscent of an old. Water God That was betrayed in love and stuff like that, and this is what I mean like. When you listen to this podcast, you research this album. There are so many lies to uncover. UNPACK around these. It's amazing, but also really enjoys the poetry that I start with starts with lots of different poetry and poets throughout the ages but yeah I mean th this song. Hold up was one of the first ones that I really loved on I. Love The way the. The pointed piano. Almost like steps coming up the stairs in before she was like waiting from Tennessee has now suddenly hold up comes on and that it's it. It's that. It's intimated or it's. Believed to be steps coming up the stairs. That's what I took from it. But. It's the first time on the album that she's distorting her voice, which which happens quite a bit throughout the album's well, and I really like it's really date voice a love, the lyrics to this song I as you said she's walking on the street with a baseball bat. And specifically what I noticed is that she's bashing up 'cause. It's. Quite emasculating I guess you know caused by a May and my measure. He's worth and then at the end of the chapter wants the the songs finishes. She's basically a massive tanker truck rolling at the mall and I think the Just, the The imagery throughout is is so powerful. It's so powerful that the dude had to pose for four seconds to think of the words that were following up there. It's it is quite an emasculating album in. In many ways this survey and she's like that. There's a transfer of power. There that lyrically and. Visually. It's quite prominent. Yeah I think I think the juxtaposition of the masculinity versus the feminine as you say the wrong truck. Traditionally you know your your average thome could truck driver is probably going to be. A male right? That's that's that's not a sexist assumption. That's that's a fact Ryan. and Sheikh so gets in this thing and drives across all these taxis tax season causes. She smashed in. Again it's sets the tone for the next chapter right she's she's in control. She's taking his Tonka trucks and she's in control normally when people smashing the shit out of stuff. It's because they're out of control. The point is here. She's totally in control of what she's doing. She at ease and and yeah, and it's a great songs. Got Some Mad Bob Molly riffing nerine. Sky.

right if it's not super where it's a third wife a third of the the drug research money comes from the government all right couple of things number one you said it's quite as a reputable number two it depends on the company does that what the research I did indeed that general research all the yeah I'm not too long ago there talk about all the money they give colleges and universities they're not talking about money that these companies get right I think I'm gonna wear her other words there's a Lotta research that takes place in colleges and universities there's a lot of research that takes place in government you have at the National Institute of health he of the national science you've got all kinds of stuff going on I'm not talking about that I'm talking about companies of poor billions and billions of dollars into trying to look dementia is one of the biggest problems we have in this country and it's growing and growing and growing Alzheimer's I read about this all the time companies have poured billions and billions into this and they're no closer to finding a solution they are now that's lost money and for the prior guy that's some companies pay zero taxes because they spend billions of dollars in research and development that's the tax code and so forth and so be it why it it should be used to pay off student but I want to get back to your other point you talked about Medicare for all the problem is it's not set up right you understand that is the argument that every failed communist regime is made everything will be great but for the fact that people who ran it sucked but for the fact the original model wasn't right how about the ideology is wrong what a correction now I mean you think again about corruption yet there's corruption and everything I just told you two hundred fifty billion dollars in waste fraud abuse you want to Google that according to the GAO every year the federal government so let's let's agree that's for now stipulate there's a lot of corruption so that's not the answer there's corruption in government description outside of government the entries how do you get services to people in the most efficient way were you also create new technologies new medicines perhaps new inventions that fix stuff you're not going to get it out of the department of HHS it's not gonna happen you're gonna get it the labs around the country you're gonna get in of people who want to invent things and make a profit and do stuff like that by the way who are employed in the federal government who's employed in the federal federal employees yes but how do they get their jobs I applying for them on through but I mean are they they are they the brightest that we have in the private sector they all want to become GS twelves at the department of agriculture what I'm saying these people have are they are they have unions I'm I'm just pointing it out attacking civil service union jobs seniority as I write in my book rediscovering American as a minute I'm gonna send you that book by the way these these people aren't hired because they're the best of the best I am confused I am confused how would you sort of Medicare to have Medicare for all the governments had shot it's called the veterans administration well I think one of the things is putting caps on companies that why do you guys always want to attack companies I'm asking you if you had a blueprint that you could forget about companies forget about money what model would you set up to get the most health care to the most people what would you do what kind of a weird question to ask me that's not my I don't study that I don't and Bernie Sanders does well watches proposal you said you supported well he and all leaders really just find the people that do you study that and bring them and they're not leaders what makes him a leader everybody who's running as a potential leader yeah no I know they're not even potential leaders their potential vectors but that doesn't make them a leader yet you say now we're playing now now we're playing games you want to know why because you don't have an answer be honest and what I'm trying to tell you is Bernie Sanders doesn't have an answer hold on one Bernie Sanders has asked where is this money going to cover I don't know nobody knows well all of them all of the official candidates have their policies on our websites that are pretty detailed email and read of all I didn't ask you that what is Bernie Sanders going to do to get more health care to more people okay well here's one point if you let me finish talking so somebody go to their websites to waste of time now I know just one point is that you know we a lot of the companies are charging absurd amounts of money for things and going to the hospital you pay like forty dollars to hold your baby after you give birth there's a lot of things that are just jacked up search I I don't know were you getting this stuff I pay fifty five percent in taxes nobody's charged me fifty five percent in taxes and when I pay and I don't know what you're talking about we have free health care of the ones who in this country we have free drugs that people can get if they can actually show that their their impoverished most people want something for nothing you know what I'm getting from the calls from you Bernie Sanders supporters you want something enough for nothing you just have easy answers the corporations are corrupt and and and go on their website and so you don't have any answers I'm just saying that if you restructure and make a lasting waste and stop trusting people absurd amounts for thing anyway I'm trying to explain to you that if you restructure you say the government restructure the government can be restructured self to reduce weight and waist and there are people in the government for the most part who are capable of it anyway I want you to rethink your thoughts I'm gonna send you a copy rediscovering Americanism I'll be right back van point nine FM Hey.
