The Top 10 Cities With Emerging Housing Markets

"The number one city for emerging housing markets yesterday. Elkhart goshen in Indiana. Number two, Burlington, North Carolina. Number three, Johnson City, Tennessee, number four. Fort Wayne Indiana, Indiana doing very well in this study. Number 5, billings Montana. It comes with a snow shovel from Andrew and Todd when you buy a house there. Raleigh, North Carolina kind of makes sense to me. That's number 6. Rapid City South Dakota is number 7. It felt a little bit in the rankings every year, but still that people are moving to Rapid City because it's affordable. North, port, Sarasota, Bradenton, Florida, is an 8th place. Again, we're talking about low cost states, low tax states. Number 9 to pick up Kansas. To pick a Kansas and rounding out the top ten improbably the salia Porterville. Dwayne is looking at me like, this hell yeah, Porterville? Yeah. You ever been to Visalia? I'm not sure that that would be my recommendation to anyone moving out of favor. For about 5 minutes.

Was Bruce Willis Exploited by Slimy Producer Randall Emmet?

"As we know, as we spoke in about Bruce Willis, has retired from acting after being diagnosed with aphasia. Which is a condition that affects the brain's language and speech centers. But due to his timing, one of the last movies I'll ever see him star in is a third rate piece of shit movie called wrong place. And it's directed by who gives a shit and costar in a perfectly nice looking woman whose most recent recognizable credit was 24th billing in the 2018 YouTube red original series called step up high water. But if it's any solace, wrong place may also be one of the final credits for his producer, a guy named Randall Emmett. You know him through me. Okay, there's a big expose about him in the LA times. And Randall's been accused of all manner of unsavory behavior, including but definitely not limited to exploiting or at best willfully ignoring Bruce's declining health as the pair cranked out one razzie worthy movie after another. But if Randall drowns in the dozens of lawsuits, he's currently facing it won't be because of Bruce. Us Weekly says that Bruce's lawyer insists that Bruce continued to work well after he was diagnosed because he wanted to work. Not because some reckless idiot like Randall Emmett made him work. Randall Emmett is so toxic right now and I told you this three three four years ago what a piece of shit he is. So ahead of the, I'm so ahead I'm behind. He's toxic,

Biden Expected to Make a Decision on Forgiving Student-Loan Debt Soon

"Anyway, I want to go to this Wall Street Journal headline that they are billing as an exclusive. We've certainly heard a lot of rumblings about Joe Biden making this decision as we get closer to the elections this fall. In this case, the headline is, Biden's student debt decision expected later this summer. Apparently, he's been kind of punting, right? Because he's getting kind of nervous because he's trying to weigh the political consequences. It would be nice if he weighed the economic ones as well. I'm going to get into that. But the political consequences could be actually perhaps unintended, right? I mean, he thinks he's doing a good thing. He's mobilizing the base. He's getting younger people like AOC's crowd and the Bernie Bros, jazzed because they may get forgiven some of their student loans, but but what about everybody else out there, right? What about everybody else? It did things, the right way, the hard way, and maybe worked a few jobs to send their kids to school script and saved everything they could over the years to send their kids to school, and then they actually get nothing here. In fact, if anything, they're on the hook for all those people that kind of you could say sort of abuse the system, right? Not that the system didn't abuse them as well. I'm going to get into that because college costs are way out of control and basically that's been self inflicted from frankly. Government policy that was intended to do one thing and wound up doing

Lance Christensen: Why Do Education Adminstrators Force Medical Decisions on Children

"But I don't mind if a parent wants to make that decision for their child But what we're talking about is parents being stripped of those decisions Here in California we're about to pass a law that it's passed out of committee now It's got one more step to go before it comes law that a child can consent to give the COVID vaccine at school without their parents knowledge or permission Lance your child do your children your children fully aware of your family's medical history or what's in their file No not their own I mean I have kids who do regular medical treatments for asthma and allergies Do we get regular injections for You've got to be very conscientious That's how he thinks mixed with other things And you can't just go out and blindly put things into that bodies Remember to these teachers and administrators at schools that are so in favor of this they're not the ones that will be with the children during the summer or at night when something goes wrong They're not the ones that are going to be rushing into the hospital or trying to schedule an appointment or try to figure out the billing and costs when all these things come full fruition So if a pair wants to make that cost benefit analysis and they decide that this is the direction we go well that's fine It's on them But the second that we start coercing and that's most of these parents are having to sign these forms under duress These their children want to just live a normal life They just want to play soccer and go on activities and field trips But they're being or even in California They just want to walk at graduation They participated fully in class but now they can't walk to graduation because we have people who are dictatorial in their approach And frankly I don't understand why especially a lot of the education administrators feel like they've got to force a medical decision over something that has no impact on these children

If you know what I mean, you know what I mean. Cash, welcome back to the program. Charlie, thanks so much for having me. I love the backdrop. Looking better and better every time. Yeah, thank you. We are in an undisclosed location in Indiana one of my favorite states. It doesn't get the attention it deserves. Cash what's going on in the sussman trial. We've been so distracted for good reason on the tragedy in Texas, World Health Organization, world health assembly, kind of catch us up kind of get us up to speed here. What's going on in the Michael sussman trial? Okay, real quick. So the government and the defense have rested their cases. That means they're done presenting evidence. So tomorrow, the judge, excuse me, the trial attorneys for John Durham and the attorneys for the defense will give their closing arguments to the jury. And the case is very simple in terms of evidence that actually is going to be used to convict Michael sussman. One, the deposition transcript of my interrogation of Michael sussman from 2018, which the whole world can see on Durham watch dot com. Where he said to me under oath. Hi, Michael sussman, I'm doing all this work, alpha bank stuff for the client, the client being Hillary Clinton. Michael sussman is now charged by John Dern with lying to the FBI because he went to the office with this alphabet nonsense. And this is what the evidence came out of trial and told the FBI. I'm here as quote a good Samaritan, not for anyone. The problem is you have the deposition, the testimony from the FBI, which they're dirty cops over there. So they're not that helpful. But if Michael Susan's own text message entered into evidence, the night before he went to the FBI, where he texted the head of the FBI's lawyer department and said, I'm coming to you as a good Samaritan. So did he lie to Congress or do you lie to the FBI? They're both illegal, but he's charged with lying to the FBI. And the kicker, the nice one is, the thumb drive that they loaded the alphabet fantasy on, paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign. Was bought by Michael sussman in Washington, D.C., and paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign. They actually entered a receipt and billing record into

Alfa bank saying that they were using a secret server to communicate michael sussman. The fbi later dismissed those allegations so did muller and they were totally bogus. How did sussman lie. Durum has discovered discrepancies between susman's congressional testimony and his september two thousand sixteen interview with baker during their discussion.

Pentagon spokesman John Kirby says the risk US troops at the airport remains high. The threat stream is still active, still dynamic. We're still laser focused on that and force protection. Nearly 7000 evacuees flew out over the past day and many more have been processed and are set to leave at any time.

"Undersized, and it can't be released to the wild. And they have a harness on it like a dog, and it goes to obedience class. But I'm looking at that thing on that Bouma would tear up every dog in that room. His thing. They can train in billings animals into the wild. That's it. They can and they do. So when people say they can't they do it has to be done with the right? The people who teach them how to fend for themselves. That's what they do. But yeah, if you if you didn't you couldn't do it. If you've just been doing everything for the Puma as we say what you don't call a Puma Puma Puma. Yes. Nobody. England, they had a military aircraft helicopter called the Puma Puma Puma tally so wrong knew he was going to say that this show is ridiculous week. Right. So. Here's the thing. And I hear all the time. Oh, gosh. I gonna take my cat to the vet can't get them in the crate that my cats freaking out losing their minds. And it's just stressful for everybody actually involved. But there are some things that you can do to lessen the stress for everyone. There's involved from from the prisoners taking the cat to that. You'll veterinary no the vet tech. And this is what the fear free statistics is all about Dr Marty Becker. I think on the put this together, which is great. And then no, you probably listening and sane. Surely, fats know, how to handle pets when they come in. And I I will say this. We've all probably been in a situation where you go. I don't like how they handled my dog. Oh, I don't like how why did they do that? Mytalk didn't like that the way that they were handled. And so this is what he felt was a big gap in in the handling of animals and came up with this nation. And for example, he is one of the things so in a cat in particular. To to lessen all this stress is you can train your cat to go in the crate leading up days leading up to the actual appointment itself. The longer the lead up the more opportunity, you've got to get your cat, a little more comfortable in the crate because as you know with any kind of training with its dogs cats. It's all about positive reinforcement dominance training is gone. It's gone. It's it's arcane you should not be doing it. I want to laugh and say what you haven't picked up a red anything new in what twenty five years, you're still teaching in this dominance way. But it's all about positive reinforcement positive reinforcement doesn't mean people into some kind of a Harry fairy. Oh, you just let them do whatever they want and get away with it and said, no. And they think it's always given a bunch of traits such Lee not it's about a positive experience because we all do well in the positive experience. Don't like so this is what what is based on. And so for example, he is one of the things that you can do, and you would take your crate believe in your living room door open and put some tempting stuff inside a toy catnap. There's a blanket in the some treats and you just let your cat freely. Go in and out same with the dog can get them freely. Go in and out they get used to going in there. Positive association with the crater itself. The longer you can do that the better the result is going to be you can then for example, just Washington get your cap in the and you just close the door. You just leave it there for a few minutes. You let them out you give them all tree lots of praise again, another positive association. And so you do this in steps and eventually where you get to close the door. Maybe lift up the carrier walk around the room for a minute puts it back down door open. Lots of praise then obviously going to work your way to actually getting the crate in the car. A hearing in the car not going anywhere in the collar tall. And then coming back in the house. Lots of sounds like a lot of work. You know, what it's worth. Oh, yeah. Signing a lot of that to you. That's fine. Because I would do that. I will totally to. That's okay. Because here's the thing. I seem friends that go. I'm just stressed. Dow MacKay at the vet tech just can't even practice taking your cat to the vet. You'll have to practice checking your pets to the vet. That's what you do. And eventually you'll get in the car drive five minutes, you'll come back. And then the ultimate is that you get to the so little boy gets excited to get in the car. But somehow he knows when we're heading to the vet. They recognize by we thing. And so so it's it's a little bit of time at some stops. But it's worth it. Absolutely worth it, but I do recommend. And I am not paid by them is by sleepy pod. Sleepy pod. Have one of the only crush test approved carriers pet carriers in the United States. We've gone over that a million times they have the only approved. The only approved pet harnesses also and the crush test at the same rate. They crushed as for a baby carrier baby seat, thirty miles an hour. So is important that you do have something to say, but why am recommending the sleepy pod carrier is a data around carrier with a dome on the top. It's mash on the top zip through the center of it and the whole top unzips off. And it's three and one is a carrier. It's a seat. It's a bad. So the great thing is about that. When it comes to fear free training as you take the dome of completely you've got your bad. There's the bed in your house. It's something they're familiar with their associated with being home being comfortable. It's says, and that's a brilliant way to train them because all you, and then it's taken them in their bed into your car enough to the vet their absolutely fantastic. They are about one hundred eighty dollars worth every penny. Very well made high quality materials like cannot save all on the material that you cannot believe. And so I think about those kinds of things because once you once you go. Pets in the kalaiana to be safe as well. But that's a perfect product to practice with because they're bad. And then eventually Don goes on June comes up, lots of positive it's all around it in a very positive association. So that's basically the premise of it. That's one example of how they use it. You veterinarians practice something quite different. Which is. Yeah. There's a there's some padding. And so, you know, you know, getting to know you, Pat, once they get no, let's do that. It's like I'm on the table. Here we go Gary for, but so this is this is something you what with your veterinarian arm sometimes with you and say, you know, maybe we need to give your pet some kind of a sedative prior to getting in the car as well as the need extra aid or maybe CBD oil or something like that. But actually about to work with you as for for tips look for about who's fear free certified. But there are lots of people that getting certified as well as that, which is groomers they handle your pets all the time, and you know, dog trainers and Pat. Taxes when people have to pick them up and take him today care, or whatever it's I think it's a very important thing is is governor lots of speed is a great thing to be out there to make things easier for you and your pets. Molasses thing. The pit bull. Bam one of them was lifted. What's good news? So lovely friends over at the animal legal defense fund in California. It's a huge organization of attorneys who represent animals, and they have been doing. So since. Late seventies early eighties. I want to say, and they've represent many many many animals usually in abusive situations situation with being exploited things. I see world circuses and of of similar kind of situations. They also help with. Putting bills and laws together supporting them language. Those kind of things brilliant organization we've had Steven wells on the show before. And one of the best interviews we ever did. I highly recommend supporting them if you're in the legal field, and you want to help animals that the people you would look to if you're thinking of going into legal field and would like to pair your love of animals with the legal field there. The people you need to look towards the chapters all over the country. There's so so impressive. Well, anyway, they put out some great news this week. Montreal's new mayor has lifted the city's sweeping ban on pit bulls and fifteen months ago, we were just outraged over this. It was a controversial restriction that went into place went into effect the animal control bylaw made it illegal to adopt or otherwise acquire pit bull within city limits and required any pit bulls. Grandfather fathered in to be Muslim public captain unleash no longer than four feet in order to be grandfathered in and Mont. Montreal people on his were required to purchase a special permit and pass a criminal background check. Which was just outrageous remains amazing. Although they make impasse criminal background checks. Why do you feel that you should pass a criminal background chat dog? Oh, no. Oh. No, I mean, no justification because to make sure that you're not a criminal. And you're not going to be abusive or no there's nothing to do with it. So as a blanket you've got a pit bull. Which is we all know is not a breeze. Okay. I I was thinking completely different. I was thinking completely different. I was thinking because people get them for dogs in their they're in criminal enterprises. So that if you get one they background you to make sure that you can't get one. That's what I thought. I I was thinking of the good intention. Oh, no. This was just a blanket. You're well. I dunno. I see now it's like a prejudice towards someone who has that type dog. Was the dog. But I was thinking it was more towards someone who may be entering criminal enterprises. Most people you probably couldn't do that here though, think this is Canada. But you can't do that here with the laws. We can't just say how much stop fighting pit bulls. So we're gonna do a criminal background check on you before you can have this dog. We've talked to our Canadian people about this. Well, anyway, but this is the good news. So mayor Valery plant and her political party project Montreal which won a major of city council seats in November two thousand seventeen municipal election. Made it a campaign promise to repeal that ban. According to the Canadian broadcast corporation it emerged as a key election issue prior to the election representatives of the party promised. It would revisit the city's animal control plan and shift the focus to responsible dog ownership rather than banning certain breeds. The ban was lifted in December of last year. The bylaw was written by an outpouring of public concern following the tragic death of Christine Vachon as who was fatally attacked in yard by a neighbor's dog in June two thousand sixteen although the elements of the bylaw taught targeting pit bulls has been repealed. Montreal still has restrictions on dogs deemed dangerous to public safety. We've pertain equally to all dogs, regardless of breed. However lot to say about this. Anyway, newly elected city councillor Craig soul solve solve it. Looks like swab abor it's not solve said that targeting. Just one breed created a false sense of security because science shows there is no type of dog that is intrinsically more than all others. All dogs are dangerous and the bigger the dog the mauled by could hurt. That's a weird statement. He right in one respect, which is there is no science to prove that any breed is born inherently aggressive, but yes, all dogs potentially can bite. Potential. Yeah. It's a fear protection response. So he was incorrect in that respect insane. Of course, you know, big dog big big Joe's big teeth bite. This is going to be a bigger by clearly. Almost immediately after the ban went into effect. The Montreal SPCA filed the lawsuit against the city arguing that the new provisions run counter to the article eight nine eight point one of the civil code of Quebec, which grants animals the status of sentient beings. We didn't know about that. Kennedy Kennedy have done. Yes. Right. The organization also charged that the definition of pit bull in the rule which included three distinct breeds mixed thereof and any dog with the characteristics of breeds was too vague. Yeah. Because there is no pit bull. I'm curious as to where that came from. We don't call them pit bulls in England anyway. Call them. Call them Staffordshire terrier is the fighting pit always is. Okay. Why did I not know this?.

"I am somebody who I can just be like oh fuck you for sitting like that's where that's where I am on my rotation in terms of. Reaching out or like, I feel very much with my with my LGBT family. And I feel like folks have to prove it to me that they are deserving of my attention. It's really the first time I've ever felt that way in my life. And by that, I mean, I certainly don't mean to say here's what you should do. I certainly don't mean doubt let you know who am I so I'm no different perspectives as long as. Yeah. Absolutely. I think as long as as you're active my point is if we sit around and do nothing if we sit around and constantly say, what can I do? What can I do? What can I do? Then that's what we're going to end up. So as long as they're doing something that is in somehow benefiting someone besides yourself. It's not feeding right. Yes. Eating your ego. Then I'm all for it. I mean, I tell my students this all the time. If you're in this business to get rich and famous get out 'cause I don't know how to teach that I have no idea how to do those things. And even if I did know how to do those things I wouldn't be teaching it. It doesn't interest me. So as long as it's not about it's not as long as your activism is not self-serving. It doesn't have to be the thing that makes you crazy or the thing that's going to drive you and say or the thing that other people are doing you can create your own thing as long as it's inservice of other humans. That's my point. Yeah. I love that. Friend. We're almost at the end of this conversation, and oh my God. I can tell that. You're a good lecturer. What what classes you teach me? Now. I think so. Yes, I detracting. Yeah. But like what the well. It's difficult to explain. But it's it's it's it's the appreciation of art. And how actors do what they do. And I teach the NFL as the master students said UFC, and then I teach the BA's at USC. And that's when do I also teach through the Steppenwolf theatre, which is theater in Chicago, which. Doing that since. I work with been working with them since about nineteen ninety six men. So we have classes out here in LA as well. So I do that. And then. Yeah. So that's what I do. So I'm not really a lecturer. But I do I weirdly, I don't talk a lot in class. We do stuff more than I talk a lot churn intially. But I I, you know, I give talks a lot. And so that's probably why my mouth is. So big like, but it says the beginning conversation like shut up shut up, no date. No. The opposite of this is this was the time podcast. Is that is that? Okay. Is that great talktime? I want to ask you before. I send you back into your day. If you would shout out Queiro, so at that is it's like a person place or thing that made you feel comfortable being who you are today. Kate Bornstein there is there. Well because. Yeah. Cape. Bornstein that was just a fast answer. I loved it. Well, because he he first of all she was the first person that came into my heart. If you ask me tomorrow, it will probably be someone different. She's the first person that came into my heart. And I mean, I can even about five others, you know, Harvey milk. I bunch of people my Angelou Marianne Williamson see now, you got me going. But the reason I love Kate is because she will do anything. She's fearless. She she is self. She's a self made human being and by that. I mean, he she's taking the word transgender, and she's twisted into a thing that that is sort of constantly shifting changing. And she continues to challenge gender and gender identity in a really revolutionary way. That's less about like, let's. Medicate men and women. Let's hit goes to worth and more about. Hey, let's keep those two words..

"There's a lot of businesses. Russia's got love hotels that are attached to the Russian government and so on and so forth. So I'm just going to say he was just agreeing with you, really. He's just setting up her own. I'm always for solution. So here's the reason. I was just going to ask you. I was going to be like, okay. So think you're smart. Tell me what we do. Now. Smart at all. That's not true at all. I do think that four us just in the the question. I always get asked a lot from humans is I'm an ally of the people what can I do? And so I always have a list of things because people always ask that question and everybody goes, well, you can be kind and you can be compassionate. And I always like, yeah. And then you can ABC DNA's. Here's the things you can do. Now. Take your listening. Go do them because I don't need someone to speak for me. I need someone to speak with me final need you to hold my hand and be my friend. I couldn't turn less. If you like me, it doesn't matter to me. I don't care how you feel about me. I would much prefer that you automate. So when I look at the government that were faced with right now, my whole idea revolves around. What can I do every single day in one of the things that I have found that works really really, well, it's to converse. With the people who believe the complete opposite of what I believe to reach across to someone and go to those places go to those schools, go to those universities, go to those rallies and speak to the and I mean, speak not screen, not yell. Not throw things speak to the humans the disagree with you. The most those are the greatest conversations we have yet to have. And that is going to be the beginning of how we heal as a country because he's going to leave, and we will be in tatters and we've got to start now picking up the pieces because if we don't we're gonna turn around and it's going to be too goddamn late. I feel like for me. I was doing that for a long time through my through my work travel speak onstage as a comic in try to have people. I was I was would say I wanted folks to meet me, you know, like get on Asian meet me. So that they wouldn't want to kill me. You know, like 'cause I'm I'm friendly. I'm funny. Look, I'm like, you know, like meet meet me and hear what my life in see that we're the same in and then in the voting rights correctly, or whatever I feel like for me, I've had a big change since the election where I just feel. I'm really glad that that's where you're called right now. And I I feel called more to. And and this may be because I'm a. Queer person with privilege on a bunch of different factors. Like, I'm away white MRs gender person. And I'm a person with some financial stability like there are a lot of ways in which I feel like I can kind of be the a queer person. Who's had it, you know, like like, that's that's sort of the shooter. That's happened for me where like before I was very happy being the person who did what you're talking about. And like only gay person lineup. Like cheers read like bring me in there. You know, a performing in a place where I feel hostility great. Yes. Love it. Now. I just I feel. I feel. Yeah. I feel called to be somebody who. Is communicating at the very least just frustration. Because you know, I think that something that was told to or that I heard told to to me from folks on the left was that there wasn't really that much at stake. There were some folks who were saying that the idea that like doesn't really matter who's in the White House and for me right now, I just feel like..

And so there's a great influx of mine which then has to go out to pay all the creditors. Shogun is taxed. Oh, yeah. And it's very clever, which is why when people like an idiot. I'm like, no, he's not an idiot. Not true. At all. That guy knows exactly what he's doing. So no not. For us. I go ahead. Go ahead. You know, certainly, I mean if you know, certainly I believe that he has certain convictions. But none of them were moral. He's now. He he's he's an immoral immoral. Yes. I agree. Yes. He's a human has a lack of more holes. All so there really is no reason to condemn someone like that. Because when when you have someone who's that empty, the any kind of energy you put towards this person is utterly wasted. I watched people just get exasperated screaming at the television.

"Teachers and friends and your lover's in your relatives. We are just as you said, we are absolutely everywhere in your neighborhood, you you might not see us. But we're absolutely everywhere your neighborhood single because I really think some of the responsibility means to lie in our laps meaning the older LGBTQ. I generation we need to be responsible not only for leaving leaving a historic footprint. But for creating safe. Spaces for this new generation to come out in because that's part of the problem. Don't say oh transpeople their only point three of the population. You don't know that you have no idea how many VR because we don't know. How many we are true terrified come out? Absolutely. We're not standing up and being counted are you out of your tree? So my job I feel in my tiny little pea brain job. Is to to the best of my ability as much as I possibly can keep myself loud and vocal and continued open in every possible way a space for LGBT people to land. Absolutely. Really? Yes. The responsibility. And I think that's the reason for the creation of social media, quite frankly. Oh one hundred percent. I mean, I feel I feel the same way that you do. And I and I lose a lot of subscribe to the same ideals, which is just small examples of lived of life lived are huge. There really are because I didn't I didn't have a ton of that. I mean, you know, whatever folks could talk about you know, who might have been. Like, I guess Ellen had already been on a magazine or some I wasn't allowed to watch that my house. But that's also not a person that that wasn't acceptable. You know, that's like not that wasn't an accessible. I mean, she had to go to hiding first of all and second of all like, no, it's not like I got to see like you're saying snippets of of a funeral or of a breakfast. You know, like I didn't get to see any of that stuff. And and so it it is those moments that make you think that you that there is a reason to stay on this planet. You know in that there is a reason to be connected to other people. I completely agree with you on that. And I live the same way. So we have that we have that in common, and I respect I respect that so much. It's what I'm trying to do all the time. And I also think you know, when we talk about this current administration. I don't know this is just me. I'm curious what you think about this. I don't know that this is just me. But I'm curious what you think about this because you're clearly this person. I just feel like another thing that that is so disappointing to me is. As I mean. So so clearly this person that is in the White House is setting themselves up for personal financial gain. Like that's just so clear in clearly woven into every bit of policy. It's it's it's mostly the White House right now is mostly so that like. The fake president and his family can like whatever set up their future hotel, the expand their hotel empire or whatever. I mean, I really think that that's most of what's happening in. So these small. These huge things in our lives, or these huge social changes to me are six it. It hurts a little bit more because I know like you said he doesn't care, and yes, I think that can come from fear. But I also think it can come from distraction. Like, that's not why he's there. You know? Like, I don't think he's he's not like a Mike Pence who's motivated by some internal compass on anything. Not that my parents is. Okay. But I think he's just motivated financially. So we're fighting apathy as much as anything, you know. It's it's not just that. He doesn't care because of fear. Although I think that's true. I think he also doesn't care because his endgame is bottom line. Yes. I think you're absolutely right. I think absolutely right. I think that it it. It says I said, it's he is not that he doesn't understand foreign policy is that it's it doesn't enter. Into him with the exception of how he does his his pretend business, right? You know, Donald Trump didn't have a lot of money. Right..

"We for instance, when when a when a law is on the books that hurts like queer folks, you know, an easy way to get folks to not care about that is to assume that that doesn't affect anybody that they know and it's not just like. Somebody personally. But also just the way that we talk about our distribution everywhere in like, we'll you literally already know us, even if you think, you know, know, us you already know where we are. We we are where we've always been everywhere. So that's something that I think about when it comes to like this this concept of fear right now. Is that part of it is? Also this like, yeah. Just like this smoothing out that is not allowing for the nuance of what's really happening like the people that are being racist or a racist against their neighbors. You know, like we put it that way. You know? Oh, yes. Remember that racist will travel with other races? Of course, those neighborhoods because you know, that's didn't I love social media. And one of the reasons I love social media is because of bridges that it builds to communities all over the world that would never in a million news able to come in contact with a trans person. So every time I post anything, and I'm avid on Instagram and on the Facebook. I am very clear about why I'm posting what I'm post. Thing. I know I it's it's very calculated. Never I it seems a lot like just post up, but it's very very calculated. And I can't tell you just in the last since Trump has been pretend elected. I can't tell you. How many messages I've received that are from trans people just coming out because they've seen post. Yes. And I don't post, hyper political stuff. I don't. I mean, I've all my stuff is political. But I don't post, you know, things like, you know, down but the kill smash the patriarchy sometimes I do. But that most of my stuff is like, my wife, and I eat ice cream, or my cat's opposed a lot because I think my cats are fascinating. I just think the fascinating. And so I I mean, I post it like years. Cocoa pebbles like I post anything, but to be able to a lot of the messages that I'm getting from parents transpeople saying thank you for showing us that. Life can be great and fun and silly, and and joyful, and and you know, when my father in law passed away, I did a I filmed a little bit of his service, and I put it on Instagram.

It isn't a monal. It has nothing to do with anything except here way, you're going to be you like pink. And you like blue you play with dull and you play with trucks period. That's it on at one anymore discussion about this and basketball. We're talked. So every time I am staked, but any human whether there assists, Email or mail or how ever there, but every time on any human who resist. And he kind of inclusion I know immediately, I'm dealing with fear. And so I start from a place of education education doesn't have to be demeaning. You don't have to be an asshole about it. You can work from a place of kindness, and empathy and simply sit not sympathy, but empathy and simply say. Why don't you tell me about you? Let me in on where you are first. And then I'll tell you about me, and I'll bet because this is what's happened to me after fifty six years of being on the planet and having had many conversations with many different kinds of people. Usually what happens is you begin to find the center from which we all we're bird. Yeah. That's beautiful. And and yes with work. Thank you. But in also work. Yes. Of course, of course. Of course, I do think that if you know when whenever I why I've been noticing the list. So I'm a stand up comic. And besides doing this podcast and a bunch of other things. One thing I do is a toured the country a lot. So I've been out on three major tours since Trump is elected on a bus one lake. I mean, just all over like, so I've been all over the country. And it's been a really amazing time actually to be all over the country because. Yeah. I mean, we're being taught this thing where I think is I don't know when I look at like what what's happening with the times doing those those pieces about like, a, you know, white folks in the middle of America being upset about losing whatever it is like farm subsidies or into the opportunity to or they live in West Virginia. And like the minds are closing all those human interest pieces. I just think that one thing that is left out of that is that this is not a uniform country like it, it just it. It just isn't like not everybody in West Virginia is a white man that just lost their job in the mind factors like a lot of people have a lot of different races. And and. Genders in sexual orgies. Literally everywhere, we are disbursed everywhere. And yes, there are places where the demographics are different. Like, you know, they're Philadelphia has a higher population of black folks than like, maybe say a rural town in Iowa, the has ten people, you know, like that. That's true. That is. But I just think in terms of what you're saying. I also think another thing that is being like simplified out is this idea that will like differences scary. And also that we don't have that. We don't have difference in our schools in our neighborhoods on the same block with us that we don't have the same that. We don't have different people all paying into the tame same tax system. That's rebuilding. Our roads. That's another thing that I think we would all benefit from his in..

"It was a very rare occasion when I had an actual boyfriend who would who became not only my lover. But a friend is well, so even the people that supported us the reason I'm saying that even the people that supported the audiences that came to see us, they wouldn't admit it or they would say we're going to see the free. So we really had next to no one on our side. No. I mean, I think that's that's huge that you pointed out and really important, especially the intimate the intimate partner piece because you know, I think about. There are so many reasons the sys- women should. Stand with or be in solidarity with with every other type of person, but put especially trans women like there's so many reasons I mean, number one is just a seeing another person as a human being. But what you're describing that feeling of. Shame that person might have been with you being seen with you sleeping with you being interested in you a net feeling of controlling you that the threat of violence that could break out from that like that is actually something that ciswomen should be able to relate to an isolate as a thing that could, you know, just impassively hearing you talk about that even though transplant are more at risk for intimate partner violence leading to death. Like right now. That's that's a huge problem. That's also something like what I am at risk for that too. And I have been put in terrible positions by men. And so you telling me that story, and you describing things like that to me one thing I. You know? I mean, maybe it's a little bit easier for me because I am queer person. But I just. Especially since there are so many not so many, but especially because there are lesbians who for some reason have a hard time being empathic that what you described as something. I. Can understand you know, like I can understand that feeling. That's a feeling that. I have had thing that we get is that all of us on the planet come from one divine source. That's right. And even if you don't believe in God or a any kind of force. That. Bigger than you were with even if even if you just believe in you or the planet. All of us on the planet. Just scientifically molecular -ly, scientifically molecular factually, come from one central place. Which? Makes us much more of the same than we want much more of the same. And the thing that we forget. Is that we come into this world, compact rice, we come into this world knowing that that's true feeling that that's true. That's instinctual that we are the same. What happens is we then grow up being told. How different we are from each other. And then what happens is we're told because and usually with the British intentions because we want we want to keep each other says, we are then told difference equals fear. And if we don't educate ourselves, and I'm not talking about pieces of paper. I mean in the human experience if we do not educate ourselves, we do not keep ourselves curious about others who are not like us. That continues and gets bigger and takes up more space, the fear takes up more space in us. If you look at the guy who's pretending to be president right now. Yep. Kit's people keep saying only so stupid, and he he's an idiot. And he's he's not a Bose thing. Is fearful. Because he doesn't stand for anything. He he doesn't hate trends people. He couldn't care less about us. He doesn't know he it doesn't make any sense to him. It doesn't make any sense to a transgender person doesn't make any sense to him because he's uneducated, and that's not about being smart or stupid. That's about fear. I don't wanna learn more. I fear if I learn more because this is what I was taught. I will find out about the other. And I don't wanna do that. Because they're dangerous. You know, it's one of the first things he said those people that are coming from the other side of the wall or dangerous dangerous. Right. Mangaris people. So. Generic down when you look at human behavior. Meaning when you look at the way ciswomen. And trans women and six men and friends men and all those in between navigate the planet..

"And I looked at these humans, and I saw how happy and joyful and three and how much fun. They were having. And I said I saw my family. Oh, man that was the beginning of my that was the beginning of my transition might there that was club, Victoria. That was the first place. They ended up hiring me, and I ended up working there. Wow. They hired you off of that. Like just utterly killer performance. Well, yeah. Because it was a travesty. No. What happened was afterwards? I went to Bard like the next day because then it took a while for it to sink in. And like just be in me, and my inner space and I woke up the next day. And I said to Barbara said, you know, what I'm gonna go next week for talent night, and I'm gonna lip sync. And she without batting. An I was like that's a great idea. I have a dress. You could wear seeing literally the first time I listened I lip synching to the very first one. I ever listening to was Barbara Streisand thinking how lucky can you get from funny lady, not funny, girl and a white sundress with yellow wedgies? That was my first constant my God. Yeah. They hired me. I know they hired me off of that. Also ask 'cause I'm trying to get the timeline. Right. But would that have also been like one of the first times that you maybe were address in front of other human beings like getting up there for for that performance? Or were you already wearing dresses in your human walking around non-professional life? Oh, no. No. No. No. No. Yeah. That was the very first time was up on stage. Yeah. No. And it took me a while to say to myself that I was transitioning because the only time I I I wore any kind of women's clothes. I mean, you say that now, and it's sort of like ridiculous thing to say, no women's clothes, but back then what we deemed to be women's clothes was on stage. I never get that in my life in public ever. It was a job for like, I think about a year. It was a job. It was The a. job until my best friend ginger spice said to me as we were driving home. She had these weird sort of pinnacle moments in my life strange like she said. We were in the car. And she said when you're gonna make a decision, and I said, what do you mean? We were coming home from show. I said what do you mean? She said, you know, what I mean? What are you going to make a decision? She goes. And she pointed at my body's she said because this is ridiculous. It doesn't make any sense. I knew exactly what she meant. And I said, I it was pretty profound. And I said I'm terrified because remember we were still being arrested at that time, which I did spend many times in jail for walking around for what they called in drag. So we were being systematically hunted in very very specific way by police. And I said, I'm just afraid that I'm I'm gonna you know, be I'm not going to be passable. I'm just I'm just afraid that that's going to be true. And she said that's not the point the point is when are you going to make this decision? Well, so the next day I got up and I put on a dress. I think and I put on my red, my favorite read poems. I put on a little bit of makeup. I did my hair. I went up in the middle of the day. And I said to myself or maybe to God or to the universe. I said out loud. If anything I'm gonna walk around the neighborhood. If anything happens to me anything. I know that that's a sign that I cannot live this way. It anything happens to me. This was high noon on the north side of Chicago in like nineteen eighty one eighty two any kind of transportation walking around with fair game not just for being arrested at the police, but I mean for. Violence of any kind. Just wade. And I watched around that neighborhood for probably a half an hour and nothing happened..

"I was that we see at the time. That's what we call it as as a showgirl at the baton on clerk street. So that's why with I started at a place called club, Victoria, which is no longer there from Broadway. And I so here's what happened, I suppose. This is interesting is it at all interesting. What I'm saying? I'm just like, I'm just listening with rapt attention. Truly in trying to ask because sometime follow up questions is so much easier. When you're can see my face because my face is going. Oh, yes. Tell me more. I'm good good. Because I sometimes when I talk I feel like Alex shut up to know. What is so cool about this is like, you know, you you, and I. We're not so far apart in age. And also we figured out some things about ourselves in similar times. I figured out that I was a queer person at nineteen. But when I when I came out and was nineteen in, you know, two thousand and two I guess one thing that is true is like I I felt like I was discovering quickness on my own because now I mean things are not better of for many, many people one thing that we do have is the internet to at least create like a through line or a record of our history like that we have existed before. But I really felt like when I figured out that I was a queer person because of where it was raised in how I was raised. I didn't know any other queer people. I certainly didn't know anybody that was like gender, non conforming or trans person. I didn't know I didn't know anybody that was anything like me. And so I kind of thought I was like inventing all history on my own. So to hear that like just not too long before me in neighborhood not too far away from where I was like you were living this history. It's very interesting. Like, I'm loving hearing. What you have to say does that make any sense? It's like w. That makes sense. Thank god. I think you're absolutely right. Because we have to be careful about how we talk about the past because I had said over and over again, you know, that that the Rev revolutionary act for me as a trans person in the early in the late seventies and early eighties was simply walking out the door. And I said I recently at around here with Laverne Cox, and she turns me, and she said, listen that's still a revolutionary act. Like, oh my God. You're right. So I, you know, I maybe I should only speak about myself. I need to be really careful about saying. Oh my God. It was so much more something before than it is now that's not true at all. So what I do. Now is I say it was this is how it was. And how it is. Now is how it's now. And how it is now, and we have tons of work left to do because we do because it's still is dangerous, and it still is. Lethal. We're still losing. Absolutely. Well, and there are also folks every age in every city. That are that are also part of our family. So I think it's red to hear like I love that you're naming places. So tell me more about this time in your life. When you're when you're figuring out. Who you are. Let's see where was I in my exciting primarily. I so terrible. That was terrible that you just got be horrifying on. Great. Good. Thank god. Welcome. So I went to you know, the reason these stories are so fresh in my mind is because I'm actually writing my autobiography like as I'm oh, good speaking to well, not as I'm speaking to an writing while I'm talking to my life anyway, so I- here's what happened. I was this, you know, kid from Schaumburg a suburb of Chicago, knowing that I had always dressed up in my mother's clothes and lip sync to Barbra, Streisand, especially her live, concerts and Judy Garland her Carnegie Hall album, which I did entire concerts for and also had intermissions, by the way. I've been doing it..

Hi, I'm Alexandra billings. And I'm talking to you. And that nice. Yeah. Yes. I'm I'm Cameron. It's nice to say to meet you Alexandra. And we'll do do you want to say anything else about yourself? You don't have to. But I'm curious sometimes as to like what people talk about when they introduce themselves. I don't know. What should I say about myself like an introduction? Like my God. What did I say? I am married. And I am a professor of acting at USC, and I'm an actor. I didn't know to those things. Which didn't what didn't you know? What I didn't know your professor, I know you're married just because I didn't I don't really look into my guess personal life. Of course, I'm familiar with you because an actor. But I didn't know those two things your professor Helen how long have you been teaching? I oh how long have been teaching? I've been teaching since nine to noon. Twenty don't nice teen nine ninety something early nineties like so that's a lot of students that you've shaped. I have talk millions and millions of students, and you know, I I really believe that they have shaped me much more than I could possibly ever ever since I've been just teaching a class actually strangely a couple of days ago. And it was a class of transgender queer and binary actors specifically for them. I was a guest teacher. This is a class that was developed by an actor producer name rain fell Dez she's amazing and she made up this class, and it's been going on since August. But anyway, she, and we know each other from transparent, and she actually come and guest. Teach. So I was teaching and they were just fantastic was just great. It was just it was beautiful. And and you know, when you get a bunch of us in a room, especially if artists transpeople in everybody, the fifth round of the umbrella when you get a bunch of us in a room the history just in and of itself is enough to shake the building. But so we finished the class, and we were talking one of the actors said. While you have a lot of energy. And I said, yes, I do I have a lot of energy. And they said where does it come from? And I said, well, you all meaning students any students saved my life because when I began to transition I was also a young teacher. And I started my transition in nineteen eighty and I was acting, but I was also teaching part time. And you guys were the only humans that were not sitting in judgment of me, you accepted me. Holy completely. And totally and don't know that I could ever live long enough on the planet to repay that kindness. So when you say that I have shaped them really it's the other way around we were you teaching at the time. Back when I first started. Yeah. In the eighties when that was happening, and you felt so accepted by your students. Where were you teaching at the time? Chicago, illinois. Oh, that's where I'm from. I'm from Chicago out of here. No. Yes. That's true. Yeah. I'm from Chicago where where were you teaching in Chicago? I was teaching at Jane Brody Jane Brody studio. You know, Jane? I am familiar with her name. I don't know that we know each other. But I I know that I think she might know my sibling, actually. But yeah. That's amazing. You were you were will. I mean, just that. I'm vaguely familiar with some eloquent paths intersect. You know, Malia we have context for each other's lives. So you you were living in Chicago is that where are you from? I'm actually from California. I was born here where I am right now. And I I was born in Inglewood, California. And then we lived all over southern California until I was about ten when my parents, divorced. And then my mother remarried and her mind news stepdad got transferred back in the day. When you actually worked for a company, and they told you what to do it doesn't. I don't think happen so much anymore, and we moved to Illinois, and then we moved to a small suburb called Schaumburg, and I lived I lived there when I was about from when.

Welcome to the program in a bunch of came last week as well. So a lot of new people. Got the the Trump show coming up here because he was yeah. He loves having the media into the cabinet room when the cabinet, but he was supposed to be going on. And right now, the president is meeting with congressional leaders to try to figure out what to do about the border the wall all of that. So this business about what you want Washington to do. And the most frequent suggestion for boaters for Washington DC is something that people keep saying, but I never really see people following up other than I think the answer these surveys to say something that they think is profound and something that they hear about that. I don't think it's really thought out the number one thing that most Americans want one asked the New Year's resolution for Washington DC number one by far twenty nine percent said we want them to work together bipartisanship. Number two is similar do their job fix things. That's fifteen percent. Number three. Nine percent said impeach Trump. Number four is they want Washington to be honest and transparent. That's five percent. Another five percent. Get rid of everything. Everyone. Get rid of everyone. Drain the swamp. Five percent. Number six is helped the people four percents. What does that mean? Number three, bring the country together. He has kind of that same combat your sort of thing. Another three percent only three percent. Give a hoot about healthcare. According to this only two percent. Say they want to build the wall and slash immigration. And also two percent. What you want Washington DC to do to percents say support Trump? So I don't know where these numbers from. They don't tie in with with a lot of the polling out there about what the president has as far as polling it favors. Hammer doesn't favor him doesn't even come close. But for congress. Nobody likes congress. Anyway. So there's one of your one of your polls out there. Eight five five two nine five sixty six hundred Zeke in bay city. Michigan. Hello Zeke, welcome you're on the Tom Sullivan show. How are you? I'm doing great. I don't know why we can't get ten foot shrugs our bushes down there on the border instead of a big old wall or a fence. Liberty back and get some respect and some. What are you want? You up bushes. Bush is Trump. Yeah. That would be like the national parks glorified again in our country. Dumb. What kind of Bush's? There's a lot of Bush's out there Zeke what kind of Bush's. You're talking about something with that that has flowers on it or something pretty or you want something with thorns on them. So that people will get scratched if they go through or because I would think bushes. We gotta make we gotta make America stands for something different than what it's been a wall is going to be. In the future is gonna a Waller offensive, especially is gonna gonna rot us right out here in America. But we get. Shelter down there. Yeah. I think everybody can see our country would have some some dignity back in this country. We need to lobby Trump for it. We need to get it to be considered. There's a lot of reasons why the gardening and the shrubs and.
