"The congressional budget office says high inflation will persist into next year I'm Ben Thomas with their forecast The non partisan agency expects the consumer price index will rise 6.1% this year in 3.1% in 2023 That forecast suggests inflation will slow from its current annual levels of 8.3% However it will still be dramatically above a long-term baseline of 2.3% and it's likely to cause the federal government to pay higher interest rates on its debt The CBO's ten year estimates do contain positive news this year's annual budget deficit will be $118 billion lower than forecast last year That's a byproduct of the end of pandemic related spending in the solid job growth that helped spur Ben Thomas Washington

Ilan Berman Assesses the Western Response to Ukraine
"Ilhan, we've talked about the danger of a landlocked Ukraine. Let's talk about our actions to date. I've said $40 billion worth of aid doesn't make a lot of sense in terms of cash to Kyiv, especially when it has line items for $7 billion for the State Department and undisclosed amount of money for the CIA. That doesn't look like a to Kyiv, having spoken to cramming knowledge with people who've worked in the Ukraine, what they need is what is zelensky's calling for, which is weapons, which is weaponry, ammunition, wheeled vehicles to move their troops and also training of their reserves in safe locales like the Baltics and Poland. Will you give us your assessment of the west on blocks response to this war in the last three months? Right. Well, I mean, there's a lot there to unpack. But listen, I think generally I'm positive on the western response. I do have some of the same misgivings as you, which is because our politics I may say charitably have become intolerably stupid. Not ours. America's not ours, America's politics. D.C.'s. There is this false equation that if you somehow question the line items in the $40 billion that you are not your put inside. Putin side or you're somehow not supportive enough of Ukraine. But the more nuanced argument is, I firmly believe sunlight is the best disinfectant. I want to see what's sort of what is allocated, whether it's actually going to be useful to Ukraine. And accountability. Absolutely. But can I just flip on that? That's stupid politics. There's also the flip side of that, that if you're pro as we are supporting what I see is Ukraine 1776. Suddenly you're an interventionist neocon. That's
The Great Decline: Will the Human Species Be Able to Continue?
"Economic Forum is meeting about all sorts of different issues, renewable energy and the environment are forefront issues. They're talking about mass migration and how they're going to support zelensky, some of the news out of yesterday is that zelensky has said that he wants $5 billion a month, that's right. He wants $5 billion a month from the world that we must now subsidize the entire Ukrainian government that the Ukrainian government must become a proxy state of the American regime in the west. So a lot of this is unfolding. Right now, in Davos. But if you look carefully and if you look closely, there's something that is missing from the conversation amongst the world's elites. In fact, the opposite is actually happening. They are addressing an issue completely and totally incorrectly in the wrong way, and it's an issue that impacts every single person in the world. It's an issue that's happening in front of our very eyes. And in fact, if you go back a couple years on the Charlie Kirk show, I remember we did this podcast back in June or July of 2020. Remember exactly where I was. I was an Aspen Colorado. Where we did this podcast warning about the looming catastrophic and immediate population collapse that is happening in the west and around the world. Put simply in plainly, we are not having enough children. Birth rates are plummeting in the industrialized world. Now we need to ask ourselves the question why are people having less kids? We're going to explore that throughout this hour. But how often do you hear your Republican politicians or people in the news media dive into great detail about the looming population catastrophe in front of you, the disintegration, if you will? Of our ability to continue our species as we know it. The World Economic Forum is talking about every possible fringe issue. But the issue that is front and center, the issue that is so clearly in front of them that they are ignoring is, will our species be able to continue?

ABC News: American Taxpayers Will Pay Billions to 'Save the Planet'
"Derek, can you send me the story from ABC News about how many billions of dollars we're spending to try to suck carbon dioxide out of the air to help fight climate change. This was an ABC News article yesterday. I thought, well, they're drunk. They're over there drunk over at ABC. They're making crap up. No, no, no. It's true. The taxpayers of the United States, whether you like it or not, are going to be spending billions with a B to suck carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere in an attempt to save the planet from the destructive impact of climate change. I swear to you, it's a true story. Now, the media won't ABC covered it, which is good. Where do you hear the story? This is who's running things. This is who's running things.

Why Are Sexual Assault Allegations Coming Out Against Elon Musk Now?
"The question from Mark from Alaska is Charlie, you did see the Elon Musk news about the Business Insider report. What do you think? So I don't know the details of the story. It alleges sexual harassment by Elon Musk. But we know why this is happening. Let me ask you a question. If Elon Musk had announced that he was going to donate a $1 billion over the next decade to the Democrat party. Do you think that there would be a Business Insider piece against him? If Elon Musk came out and said that he was going to put all of his profits for transgender puberty blocker surgery. Do you think that he would be attacked? If Elon Musk came out and said, I'm not going to buy Twitter. I'm forget that. And said that instead he is going to try to invest money in diverse and black and LGBTQ creators. Do you think that there would be a full court press against him of course not? Elon is learning. Now he's unbelievably smart. He's brilliant. He's a great entrepreneur. But I don't think Elon quite understands how malevolent and how nasty these people are. You see, Elon has been operating in a completely different game. Elon is used to opposition and he's used to a fight. But the fights that Elon have been in have been largely fair fights, but difficult fights, but they've been kind of how the world used to work. Can't make payroll have to take out a second mortgage on your house. You know, really leverage up, go raise outside money, bring Tesla back from the oblivion. Those are tough. Fighting government regulators, those are tough. What Elon has not experienced and what he is now front and center in is a political attack. Political attack is not rational. It's not a fair fight. They'll try to destroy you at every possible opening.

Big Pharma Sees Big Money in Pushing Hormone Blockers
"And the same pharmaceutical companies that pushed forward all these vaccines see a multi-billion dollar annual opportunity in trying to push this hormone blockers and puberty blockers.

Energy Secretary Granholm: Biden Policies Didn't Affect Gas Prices
"Josh hawley is a listener to the text my pillow text line just pointed out. Josh hawley was one of only 11 who didn't agree with sending $40 billion of our money, taxpayer money to Ukraine. The texture says he's great. We need more like him. Listen to senator hawley confronting this mealy mouth wishy washy, non committal energy secretary because after all, one would think that when people are looking at maybe $6 a gallon for gas, they got to deflect blame. And the record high gas prices have to be anybody's fault, but theirs listen to this exchange. And I'm sure you've seen the reporting this morning that now triple-A is projecting that gas prices will hit a national average average of $6 a gallon by the month of August, is this acceptable to you? No, it is not. And you can thank the activity of Vladimir Putin for invading Ukraine and pulling a oh, nonsense. With all due respect, madam secretary, that's utter nonsense. In January of 2021, the average gas price in my state was $2 and 7 cents. 8 months later, 8 months later, long before Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine, that price was up over 30%, and it has been going up consistently since. What are you doing to reverse this administration's policies that are drawing down our own supply of energy in this country that are throttling oil and gas production in the United States of America? What are you doing about it? Sir, it is not administration policies that have affected supply and demand. How can you say

President Biden Signs Ukraine Aid Bill
"The United States Senate passed the president has signed the $40 billion in aid to Ukraine. U.S. missiles are being considered for sale to European allies, harpoon missiles that could end the Black Sea blockade of Ukrainian wheat that the entire country needs. The Pentagon official told The New York Times that Russian troops have been forced to fight in smaller formations in the eastern area of Ukraine known as the Donbass because they're getting shattered by western artillery that's arrived just imagine if we had done this last year. It might have deterred everything, the stock market nastiness would have not happened.
Mitch McConnell Blames FDA for Formula Shortage
"I want to play for you one clip for sure. Leader McConnell yesterday was on with Brett fair last night and talking about the baby formula shortage, and he said, but I've been telling you for days, but I like it when the leader tells it to Brett bear on special report, cut number 28. Almost total incompetence. They misjudge us from the beginning. It's not a matter of money, the FDA has a $6 billion budget. They could certainly take care of the so called appropriation in the house that they just passed at 28 million. Bureaucratic incompetence, the administration was behind the curve. FDA needed to step up their game and hopefully will solve this problem very quickly.
How the Women's Soccer Deal Favors Women Over Men
"The women's soccer is the U.S. soccer federation announced that men's and women's teams will be paid equally. And I just want to throw out some facts for you guys because we live in a world of delusion. And to think that you can not add equal value, get the same amount of money. Let me read from a breitbart article. It says, while the agreement is being called equal pay, the deal actually heavily favors the women. Women's soccer has far fewer fans, both watching on TV and going to the stadiums, obviously. The 2019 Women's World Cup for sure reached off a certain, for instance, let me say it that way. I reached a record high of 1.2 or 1.12 billion viewers across the world. And I know a lot of people that are listening are probably saying, man, that's a lot of you is 1.2 or 1.12 billion viewers across the world. But mind you, the man on the other hand had 3.5 billion viewers across the world and they earned $6 billion of profit. The earn and disparity is nothing new because, for example, in 2010, men's cup earned $4 billion in revenue, but the women's cup that year earned only 73 million,

The Left Is So Upset With Elon Musk
"The left is really upset with Elon Musk. Why are they upset with Elon Musk? Because he won't listen. He won't heal. He won't do what they need him to do. You know, when I have Briggs and I want to bring him right up to me, there's a German command called foos, which means get beside me and cut it out. You know, any dog owner Victor marks, you see with a dog. Get over here. Cut it out. It's actually another German word phooey. He's knock it off. It's very direct. That's how the left treats their own. And they've been saying to Elon Musk the last couple of weeks, foos, foos, get beside me, come to heal, and Elon's like, no. I'm not going to. Now the latest tabulations of where his net worth is, they kind of re tabulated every single day. It's about $221 billion today. He certainly has the net worth still to be able to purchase Twitter. We don't even know how valuable SpaceX is. SpaceX is probably way more valuable than anything they publicly disclose. Elon's going to be just fine. For those of you that are like, wow, Tesla stock is really down. I don't think he's going to have to take out a second mortgage anytime soon. However, it does dampen his potential purchasing power. But the left hates Elon because he will not be totally and completely blindly obedient to everything they tell him to do. You see, the way it's supposed to work. And by the way, Jeff Bezos is getting a little Elon Musk energy recently. I'm not a fan of Bezos, but Bezos is like angrily tweeting towards Biden too. He's like, hey, we as elites, we could think towards ourselves like, okay, Jeff Bezos, we'll see how long that lasts. We'll see if you keep on getting your Pentagon contracts. And Jeff Bezos will heal. Trust me. You want to talk about a guy who is all bark and no bite, that's Bezos. Elon Musk, he just might be wild and eccentric enough actually to challenge the regime. I think he
"billions" Discussed on Today, Explained
"So that was like the entire history right there, which is incredible. I wonder if I can go back and sort of pull on a string connected to one word you use somewhere in the middle of that history lesson, which was leverage. Yeah. Tell me more about the leverage. These teams had against cities. Because you think they need the cities more than the cities need them, but is that the case? Look, the fact of the matter is, and the U.S. court system has validated what I'm about to say over and over and over again is each of these major leagues in the United States. Whether it's MLB or NFL or NBA or NHL or whatever it is they're monopolies. MLB Major League Baseball is the only producer of top level baseball in the United States. Same thing with the NFL NBA, et cetera. So they're monopolies. And as monopolies, they do it all monopolies do. They restrict their output relative to demand, and that enables them to charge higher prices. One way they charge higher prices is by charging more for tickets and concessions. Another way they charge higher prices is by extracting public subsidies to build them their stadiums. As these deals have evolved, I wonder who benefits more does the city benefit more or does the team benefit more? Well, it's case by case, always because the devil's in the details, but if you're going to generalize about it, the generalization is that having a professional sports team in your city or having a stadium a new stadium or a new arena in your city doesn't lend itself to promoting economic development. It doesn't lend itself to generating more jobs or raising per CAPiTA income in the population. That's what virtually every single academic scholar independent scholarly study has found. That having a professional sports team is not a driver of economic development. It's promoted that way because politicians and the team owners want to want to find political support for it. No politician wants to spend $500 million or $800 million. And they say, oh, by the way, I have bad news. We have a big deficit, and I have to cut school to school budget this year. But that's exactly what happens. Well, sometimes it happens. When all these academics and scholars and economists look at this in the aggregate and say, oh, this never really works out. Is there one example everyone looks at and goes, well, that was the worst one we ever did. That was the Hindenburg of stadium deals. I don't know if there's a worst example. Maybe it's cute to say, oh, this one is worse than all the others. And this one is second worst and so on. I think that pretty much, you know, 90% of the deals that were cut over the last 40 or 50 years have not been economically beneficial of financially beneficial to a city. They've created a budgetary hole that has to be filled. How do you fill it? Either by raising taxes or lowering other services. I think that's the reality. Now, if public treasuries are putting down an initial 850 million as buffalo is, then they're obligated to do another 280 million of maintenance and improvements to the stadium. And they're hoping that they're going to be able to generate enough revenue off of the stadium in order to cover their debt service. But I don't see it. So I think their cases like buffalo and their cases, other cases, what happened in Oakland recently where the team left before the bill was paid. And the city is having to pick up all the debt service, even though the team went to Las Vegas. Look at what the mayor of Oakland just tweeted out yesterday calling the NFL a billionaire boys club that ditched Oakland out of sheer greed. They go on to call the NFL a cartel and said some of their practices are bribes in this lawsuit that they've put forth. What's the city of Oakland to do? They've got this massive stadium. They don't even have a football team, even when they had the football team, they only used it 20 nights out of the year. What do you do then with this massive investment you've made? I think what you have to do is first of all make sure that you've negotiated as hard and as effectively as you can. The notion that you would have debt service on hundreds of millions of dollars of bonds for 30 years, but the team is an obligated to stay for 30 years. That makes no sense to me. As I understand the buffalo deal, by the way, it stipulates that they're supposed to stay for 30 years, but it gives the bills an out after 15 years. So they might get in the same situation that Oakland is. Now, there's a little penalty if you leave before 30 years is a penalty that diminishes between year 15 and year 30. But that doesn't make sense to me. You shouldn't sign bills like that. What's a situation that went well for a city and the team? What's like the gold standard of this kind of deal? I think the Atlantic yards deal in Brooklyn that brought what was then the New Jersey nets to Brooklyn and now the Brooklyn Nets. They Brooklyn arena as they first deliverable of the planned $4.9 billion project. That's supposed to eventually have 17 structures in all. That was it was financed by the ratner corporation, which at the time owned the nets. The Atlantic yards project received upwards of $300 million in public funds and subsidies from the state and the city. And developer forest city ratner and its CEO Bruce ratner made a lot of promises. So you have a public investment on the one hand that is 8 or $900 million. You have a private investment that's close to $5 billion. We are finally here to celebrate the grand opening of the Barclays center arena. Okay, and you know what? Here it is. And you brought an area to life. So, you know, it seems to me that that's a plus plus. Remember at the beginning of this interview when I asked you about the history and you gave it to me starting about in the 1950s, right? That was the moment where cities said, we'll throw you some money if you build a stadium, yeah? Yeah. What if that moment never happened? What if cities back then said, to hell with you, you need us more than we need you. We're not giving you a nickel. They'd have to just front the money. They just have to ask their billionaires to build these stadiums, right? The answer is we wouldn't have nearly as many modern stadiums. Stadiums would be a lot simpler than they currently are. The biggest cities might have slightly more elaborate stadiums, but they would be a lot less elaborate than they are now. And one of the consequences of that is that the teams would be less profitable and hence they would have lower franchise values and they have now. And the players, by the way, would be playing and stadiums that had fewer people who were spending less money on the tickets. So they're what economists call marginal revenue product or the value of what they produce would be lower and the player's sellers would be lower. So yes, that could happen, but it's a counterfactual. And it's not something that somebody can get be elected president and snap his or her fingers and get that to change. It's very useful. To say gee, if we didn't spend $800 million on a stadium, we could spend $800 million improving our school system. Yeah. If it were the case, that building the stadium actually will produce more tax revenue than it will produce obligations, financial obligations for the city. Then that actually enriches the city's ability to provide services. And that's potentially a good thing. But the issue is you're saying, by and large, the stadiums don't bring that kind of revenue to cities. That's right. That's right. I'm just.
"billions" Discussed on Today, Explained
"It's a few decades in which the city's economy and the region's economy has been very much on a downbound train until recently and recently there's real signs that population and the economy are picking up. But all through the troubled times of buffalo's recent history over the last 50 to 60 years, the Buffalo Bills have been central to bringing the community together and giving the community something to root for. It's a very unique relationship between a town and team that's really only like one other in the NFL and that's the Green Bay Packers. Most other NFL cities are much bigger than buffalo. The metro areas that they serve are much bigger. But the bills for the longest time have been just a central part of our identity in western New York. This is breaking news from news 8. Good afternoon, breaking news on this Monday, a hefty price tag for a new Buffalo Bill stadium. Governor Kathy hochul confirming the state and Erie county taxpayers will be asked to contribute $850 million in public funds for the construction of a new bill stadium. If the state legislature approves it, the Buffalo Bills will likely be set in Buffalo for the next three decades. And there's a sense of security to that that would be very important to the community. This is a city that did lose an NBA franchise that lost industrial power after industrial power over the years. There is, of course, another side to this story. There are significant numbers of people in Buffalo and in other parts of New York State that look at this as too much public money going to a business entity. That is the Buffalo Bills owned by a billionaire. So there's a debate in Buffalo just as there is another parts of the state. However, the current stadium will soon be 50 years old. Orchard park, the new stadium, the new home of the Buffalo Bills. More than 600 men in machines labor to complete the new facility in time for the 73 Buffalo Bills football season. It is in very rough shape and would need an awful lot of work, and even with a lot of work, it would not meet the modern day NFL standards. So the presumption has been that if the bills could not get a new stadium, there would be the grave danger that the bills could end up leaving town sometime in the next few years because the lease is up only in a couple of years. So is that how this deal came about? It was just sort of proactive. Do we have any idea? Well, the bills made clear that they need a new stadium. Ron recue was asked if a stadium deal was not reached. Would the bills continue to play at high Mark stadium? No. We absolutely will not. The NFL made clear that the bills need a new stadium. I do believe that a stadium long term is going to be needed in that marketplace. I love Ralph Wilson stadium, but it's got to compete against a lot of these new stadiums that have a lot of very important features that stadium doesn't have. So basically, this was bound to happen. Whomever was governor, be it Andrew Cuomo or Kathy hochul would be at this point in time, looking to come up with some sort of a deal with Erie county and with Kim and Terry pegula, the owner of the bills, to build a new stadium. Clearly, as soon as governor hochul took office in August, people started asking questions. So I come with the buffalo question. We know you have a study underway. What we're wondering about is, what is your timeline for a deal? Are you hoping to see a deal by the end of the year? And we have heard over the last few weeks that there was going to be a deal. There's going to be a deal. My desire is I'm a Buffalo Bills fan. Let's lock this down. Let's get it done. So we are very intently focused on keeping the bills here. What's your parks their first choice? They're only choice. It's Orchard park, and we'll make it all happen. It was only announced a week ago, which some people clearly don't like because it was very late in the state budget process. The state budget was doing on April 1st, which is now late. And it did take place in secret. The negotiations did take place in secret, but all business negotiations take place in secret. There is concern among some that the deal came so close to the budget deadline that it couldn't be properly vetted that there couldn't be, say, legislature hearings on it. And that is a much more legitimate concern than the idea that this thing would be negotiated publicly because it feels like this are never negotiated publicly. So the state of New York pays the line share. Yes. And it's a record breaking sum of money. Well, it depends on how one looks at it. The public contribution, according to our analysis of the buffalo news, is less than the 73% public contribution to stadium deals in smaller NFL markets over the past two decades. Things are different in a place like Los Angeles or Las Vegas. We are so ready for major league sports in this town. But there have been very major subsidies there as well. So for example, there was a public subsidy to the new stadium in the Las Vegas for the Las Vegas Raiders. There are the state paid 750 million to build a $1.9 billion stadium. It's the biggest dollar amount, but it's not the biggest share ever. And I have a feeling that part of the reason there is some blowback is that the peculiars are billionaires. And not only are they billionaires, but they're fracking billionaires. And this is a state which would rejected fracking years ago, and that a lot of public figures have spoken out against that form of natural gas drilling. And here we have a fracking billionaire getting a lot of state money to build the stadium. Okay, the fact that the pergolas are getting a single dime of public funds is kind of a shocker. I thought those days were long gone, especially when you're cutting funds for schools. You know, regular people has responded to that particular criticism yet? No. And she has some personal ties to the team, yeah. There are personal ties in that number one. Kathy hochul is a big Buffalo Bills fan. Because I'm a Buffalo Bills fan. But more importantly than that, her husband is the general counsel where Delaware north companies. I have the coolest job in the world. I have the coolest job in the world. I have the coolest job in the world. I have the coolest job in the world. I have the coolest job in the world. I have the coolest job in the world because I work for Delaware, north companies. Delaware north companies is one of the largest concession air companies in the entire nation. Ha. Currently, Delaware north handles the concessions at high Mark stadium, the bill stadium today. And so the company that Kathy hochul's husband works for benefits whenever a Buffalo Bills fan buys a beer at the current stadium. There's a lot of questioning of that. However, that contract for the concessions doesn't carry over to a new stadium. Okay, but there's a lot of reasons for people to think this is suspicious or at least sticky or maybe a little clumsy. I mean, the governor herself has a direct tie to the business operations of the stadium through her husband. She's financing a stadium for a team that's owned by a fracking billionaire while she's running for reelection and this is a huge giveaway of public funds to the NFL to the Buffalo Bills. Is there a chance that while she's running for reelection, this sort of goes south on her? It is certainly possible looking at the race for governor here in June. Neither of her two opponents have really caught.

"The bills make me wanna shout ahead on today explained it's the off season, but that is not stopping the Buffalo Bills from setting records. The football team just struck a new $1.4 billion stadium deal with New York State and local government picking up $850 million of that tab. That is the largest taxpayer contribution for an NFL facility ever. And that's $850 million of public funds, even though the team is owned by a fracking billionaire. Why? New York is handing over nearly a $1 billion to the Buffalo Bills and whether these publicly funded stadium deals ever work out in the public's favor. That's a head on today's show.

"And getting back on his feet. So I recommend that too. When a trivial accusation started on an anonymous Internet form, an internationally famous Korean hip hop star named Tableau, was at the top of his game. But then rumors started to spread that he wasn't who he said he was. They were like claiming that I had the bribe the FBI and that I had ties to the Illuminati. What went down had never really happened before. Not like this, not on this scale. They were trying to attack everybody who was associated with Tableau. I'm Dexter Thomas, the host of a new podcast from vice about this bizarre conspiracy that started off as a blog post and turned into an international obsession. I was about to hang up the last time and I hear him yell, we'll pay you $10,000. This story takes us around the world to ask a fundamental question. Are we who we say we are? Listen to authentic, the story of Tableau, starting February 24th on the iHeartRadio app, Apple podcasts, or wherever you get your podcasts. Hey there, I'm Jess, my lady confetti here. Hi, I'm psyche, and I'm hey shady lady. And welcome to boss level, podcast where we feature conversations with gas tube leveled up, bringing an XP boost to the table. That was always my response. This is like, I am like a unicorn here, right? Because there's not a lot of out of the closet female gamers. It's not to say there's not being on cameras. I know a lot of them. It was like a battlefield. They're like, this is our cool voice club and you can't be here. No, sorry, honey. This is a very dark corner, and I'm a lot of light. We pick the brains of professionals, creators, and bosses and industries across the globe to help our listeners achieve their own boss level. We are not just creating a podcast, but a gamified and engaged community. Listen to boss levels, starting on February 24th on the iHeartRadio app, Apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. So we gotta talk about dame. Yeah. We gotta talk about dame. So I will fight you. So manics and I have had this debate on this podcast. About whether the blazer should trade dame. And this was before they started the teardown. And before they traded CJ and before this season had gone so far off the rails, it was more about mannix took the position so you'll like this, Kelly, like I'm in your corner on this one. Mannix was of the just heartless non sentimental. You just have to do what's best for the franchise. Send him out, get a massive payoff in picks and players and whatever set yourself up for the future, rip the band aid off. It's time you're never going anywhere with him. And I have been of the position that there's more value to Damian Lillard to that franchise. Than just whether or not you can build a contender around him, which obviously is still the goal, but there is a commitment to the fans. There is the need to sell tickets and the whole business side that's saying, wow, hey, who are we advertising now if this guy's gone? There's the fact that if Damian Lillard himself continually tells us this is where I want to be and you're going to trade him without a trade request and you're doing it now not because he felt he was better off somewhere else because you decided the franchise is better off without it. That's difficult. Emotionally, business wise, there's a lot wrapped up in it. I'm fairly certain, I know where you would be on this Kelly, especially given our previous discussion about you not wanting to advocate for trades of players that you've gotten. Yeah. But where are you on the dame little quandary? And this one, I don't even have to hold, I don't even have to pretend. Anything at all. You can't. You can't. I mean, if he wants a trade, I would be heartbroken, but I would say give it to him. Accommodate him. You have to accommodate him in whatever manner he wants to be accommodated. But what he's given to this franchise, it's the only the only Pacific Northwest franchise. It's a small market. By the way, bring the sonics back. It's a small market. He's been so loyal. He has brought legitimacy to the team. He's just been the ultimate teammate. He's been a captain. He makes, he makes people better. And you just can't, you can't do it. He's played through he's played through apparently this abdomen, this core issue has been something for a few years now. You can't trade him when he's hurt too. You can't trade him after a season, a season like this, forgetting all the other seasons. It was just last year that he was playing out of his mind. Scoring 50, and we just didn't have we didn't have the team around him to take advantage of that. I mean, he was hurt this season. There's another little sidebar that's connected, but not exactly what you're talking about. But there's a lot of talk about dame being over the hill. A lot of chatter. A little off on the side, but a lot of chatter. Because of the way he was playing this season not being up to what we were used to. And fuck you, he's hurt. His core, like literally he ripped his stomach. It hurts, you can't do anything when you do that. When I was doing the boxing episode, this is so I'm not trying to equate myself with an elite athlete. Like, damn, but I broke my rib. Hit me too high and missed the padding and he drove through instead of what we had choreographed. And I was up like this so it was all exposed. And it hurt like a motherfucker. I mean, the adrenaline got me through that day, but then for the rest of that week, I could barely move. And I know it's not a broken rib, but it's anything in your core is gonna fuck with you. That's my, that's my medical expertise talking. Well, I think your core is gonna fuck with you. Yes. By the way, no small thing. So my earlier in my career covering Shaq and abdominal strain abdominal tariffs some kind like nearly derailed his career, he talks about how Alex McKee who is now performance director of camera barrel Alexis exec title. It's around it's a big fancy title, but Alex McKee was with the Lakers at the time where they excuse me. They brought him in specifically for Shaq and then ended up hiring him, but Shaq when he got his MVP that year, 99 2000, credited Alex for saving his career. So they abdominal, especially on a guy like check size, but even on dame Lillard, I think that's a very serious thing that is not something you mess with. It's very serious. Yeah, and that's an interesting story. I had actually heard that. So anyway, a lot of this talk is that I'm seeing an even blazer's edge. I don't know if you're familiar with places. Yeah. It's the blog on whatever I came of the sponsor of the platform. But this nation, I believe, right? Thank you. Yeah, espionage. All of a sudden, people are talking about how, you know, we got to trade dame. And it's like you wouldn't have even entertained that thought, except for the fact that after him playing hurt, even when the season anyway, whatever. So that's my little sidebar. I'm pissed that some of the motivation is because people are thinking, oh, he's about to fall off a cliff production wise. And maybe that's true if I'm knocking on wood. But if the injury doesn't heal and if it gets worse, maybe that is true. But if he can heal, we're only half a season removed from a brilliant Damian Lillard. At top of his game, what people were talking about, I don't know how.

It is closer in size to the original surface pros which were eleven inch screens. Ten point ten point seven ten point. Three whatever it's about the same size as what. The surface go is significantly better than the originals of course odd but it's it has very little difference between the two of the three It did not get the major design.

The black one was for the first and second generation when the when the pros were black and the little thing here was how they charged literally charged on the same port that Surface charged on and they magnet in there This one here is for the newer devices It was the second generation. There's a third generation lost the clip and the atip turned purple which i hated But these did not charge. Which i always thought was a mistake. They run on to quote a. Batteries which i thought was a huge mistake because the charging capability the first one was one of my favorite parts but it also connected side. The side i think. Yeah so they also connected to the computers via magnets. The thing that's cool about all this new generation however is that the place that they connect also charges them again And it doesn't matter if we're talking about the surface pro eight that goes in the keyboard and close up if we're talking about the surface laptop studio all all of new devices have a place to just click it in. Let him charge. Which i think is really cool. I'm not a huge fan of the design. This is still my favorite surface. But it's i like that. They connect charge and hide away on all the devices..

It's called a nuisance payment as the the goal is to make you go away more you you say that the class has not been satisfied and therefore you don't get anything out of it but you have the ability to go it alone. You can't do a class action again because you join the class in the first place so there are issues with further on this. What the sec. Isn't signing anything to that to that agreement okay.

"Tuesday and wednesday were the days we kind of year marked for going to universal for sure and then we had tickets for five days because they had like a ridiculous promotion. Where if you two tickets two days you got three days free. What so we were planning on going for five days. But i'm like okay so we got the. We're like two days tuesday wednesday so the first day we go down there we left in the morning. It was literally thirty. Four degrees out in orlando high was forty for the day castle freezing and we didn't bring coats that couldn't have felt freezing to you. I mean it was like twenty before you left. I mean if you're outside all day it's thirty four degrees with no coat right. That would be a little chilly. it got up to forty. It was fine. We were to sweat shirts and we went to universal studios got parked-parked tickets. What's that mean. So there's two parks for universal studios. Okay there's universal studios and then there's islands of adventure all. They're two completely separate parks. Two completely separate tickets or you can buy. That's where they get you or you can buy park hopper ticket which is a little more money and then you can go to either park and back and forth gotta get to hop so yeah originally. I've been a dizzy many times. We generally have been going there lot as the last five years because the kids are have been of free age. It's so i. I want to do something different this year. Marley wanted to go back to disney. I am tired and bored of disney and then also i don't really want to go there during covid. I just felt like it'd be a pain in the full of disease have heard Not because of that. I just didn't want to deal you. Were going to bring the dizzy. I just didn't think a lot of stuff. Shut down. All the shows parade right that it's not the same and there's no characters i don't think no like walking around with me but universal also. Has you know their own stuff. But for the most part things were open we had to wear masks all day but when it was cold. So you're like kind of glad to be wearing a mask and the kids wear masks all day when they go to school anyways. Because we've been going to school in sky in cash. Have been wearing masks every day. All day danny bennett said universals. Get time you do the harry potter ride or simpson's ride. Those are awesome. I did every ride. I'm and i'm going to tell you about all of them right now. So we got the park tickets. We went to universal studios. So i initially. I'm like have low expectations. Okay but going to disney like universal. Tha disney knockoff. Right yeah but it's more adult themed style. I knew that and i was a little concerned. Because there's literally almost no rides. Jet could go on. Every ryan has the right height restriction. Every oh man. How'd you do that. Few rides were thirty six inches and most of them were forty. So i probably wouldn't recommend go there because it's not that it's not cheaper than disney right. It's about the same price until your kids are at least forty two inches tall so really four years old. Yeah well that's grams. close graham anyway. We went to universal but ban. I low expectations were shattered. It is gorgeous superior not superior different but also in some ways superior..
