How Virginia Became Ground Zero in the American Culture War

"Virginia, which is now being called a blue state, how long is it going to be blue? Or is it going to stay that way? Again, the counties around Washington, D.C. are reliably blue for a variety of different reasons. The first reason of course is its proximity to the power center to the kingdom of Washington, D.C.. The second is the amount of universities that are in Northern Virginia, which is extraordinary. If you look at the amount of universities in D.C. and Virginia, the third of which is, of course, the fact that a lot of first generation low wage worker immigrants move to Northern Virginia to be able to make the life of luxury possible for so many people that live in Northern Virginia. And many, many of the refugee resettlement programs and the immigration, the mass immigration programs come to Northern Virginia, which has resulted in a totally different political type atmosphere to win an election in Virginia. And so Virginia Democrats have been able to win, reliably by running up the score Northern Virginia, being able to win in Richmond and win on the Virginia coast. The rest of Virginia is very conservative, by the way. Lynchburg is very conservative, Blacksburg isn't because of Virginia tech, but Virginia, Virginia used to be a very conservative state. Charlottesville is obviously not very conservative because the University of Virginia, Blacksburg is Virginia tech, Charlottesville is University of Virginia Lynchburg's Liberty University which is actually a pretty conservative area. Richmond is a very, very Democrat area, and so Virginia seemed dead on arrival for years. There have been great candidates before, running for governor as Republicans, and they always get disappointed. And right, of course, the current governor of Virginia's give and a Ralph northam of Virginia and he won against a pretty good candidate who was the Republican canon in 2017. I can't remember Virginia's goofy. Virginia has elections in off years for their statewide elected officials. So 2017, 2021, 2013, they do every four years and in coming up in a couple weeks, is the Virginia governor's race. And Democrat operatives all across the country, they are going a full court press they are trying to California recall the Virginia race. They're going all in. They're raising money they're bringing in surrogates, so Terry mcauliffe, who is the corrupt Clinton surrogate and wants to be governor of Virginia, I think, again, he was governor once, right? Years ago. He says, look, yesterday I had Jill Biden here. I've had Stacey Abrams. Now, let me just say this. What constituency gets excited about having Stacey Abrams I've got Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance bottoms. Oh, I see the type. He's building a constituency on how to fraudulently steal elections.

"About the nfl week. One right around the corner where you been doing. Our nfl picks podcast tomorrow. But is there any sort of early liability that you're already having to move numbers a little bit just based off of where the actions coming in. I've seen a number of small road favorites even non conference road favorites which typically red flag. But i'm having trouble talking myself into some of these dogs as a as a senior trader. Is there something you're keeping your eye on there like an eighty twenty split already that you're you're seeing so you don't like the lions and i do to live not not to win outright but san francisco strikes me as that team the forty niners that is going to ruin everyone's survivor contest. Everyone's three-team teaser. They're just it's too easy. I've been gambling for too long and al and you know as as the guy works behind the book bets like those. It's too easy dangerous showing you. I mean you're talking to guys who are considering the texans one mixture of lawrence and three point road. Favorite team was more than fifteen last year in survivor pool. You have to go those routes if you pick the same stuff everybody else that's gonna pick you're never gonna win. Need those good teams at the end of a chance. Someone all so i don't this respect. Respect the texans. But you know i think basically when you go into week one you know what sides are going to need right. We're going to need the lions to beat parleys. We're going to need bears games interesting. I think that we'll we'll see some decent sharp action that's been driven up. They still have the shawn watson we know. Travelers is gonna be good but peyton manning threw how many picks in his rookie season a little rough. So i don't think that's a slam dunk. Our road road favorite. But yeah i mean you know who are gonna need the near the bears against the rams.

I feel that if you're going to be a good person, you shouldn't do it out of some sense of obligation or even fear even worse Thomas. Appreciate your call. Thanks very much for sharing that with us. Chris would you respond to Todd this idea of obligation and fear? Well, actually, I tend to agree of with much of what he said firstly it. It is true that many atheists and others who reject Christianity have done. So at least a by their own admission because of the traditional doctrine of hell, and so part of what motivates me to share? What I think is the biblical view of hell is because I think that it's something that better resonates with the natural fear. We all have. Of death and of ceasing to be Secondly, I think he's right. I don't think that it's fear of hell that should motivate Christians to behave. Well, because after all the Christian the Christian worldview teaches that all of us are guilty of sin. That deserves the punishment of hell and no amount of doing well after we've been saved no amount of doing good will change that and earn earn salvation. And so I think that what what hell can do is. It can tap into that natural fear. We have of death and of ceasing to be we we all want to live forever. That's why so many non-christians even are investing in technologies to extend human life in a chief immortality through technology. So I think it can do that. But when it comes to what motivates us to do good. I think it should be the the grant gratitude that stems from knowing that God in his grace has saved us, and and come to come to earth in a human form in order to die on our behalf. That is I think what motivates us to to do good. May is what's wrong with the idea of hell, though. I mean in in our society in America, we have this concept of law and punishment. If you commit a crime, and you're caught you will be Judy through the criminal Justice system and could face punishment for it, if punishment is okay in a secular sense. What's wrong with punishment in a religious sense? Well, I think one of the things that would be wrong with it would be the idea that that there's something that you're going to experience. I'm not talking about the annihilation is few. But something you're going to experience torment forever. And it's hard to imagine. What one could do? So that's so evil in this life that one would endure punishment forever. If we really think about how long forever is. Well, I hear you. But I feel like this is a little selective. I mean, why is it? It seems like we have multiple standards, though, don't we professor I think when people step back and reflect on what people deserve and don't deserve. It would be rare that someone would deserve an eternal torment. Lisa. How do you see this in terms of our views of eternal torment, and whether it's ever deserved? What do you find in terms of the way, we engage with that idea? Yeah. I mean, I've been sitting here biting my tongue. I feel like we need to back up a little bit and talk about one of the problems that sort of conservative traditional Christianity has in America right now, which is that it's very. Salvation comes through Jesus Christ. That is the way to heaven and damnation or separation from God comes from not believing that Jesus Christ is is once savior, right? But we live in a culture right now that values diversity and pluralism. And and there's been a huge LGBTQ movement among young people and all of those cultural forces have made us reprioritize things. So that you know, when you send your kid to college in your kid has a Muslim roommate or Jewish roommate or a gay roommate roommate who is not by the book, according to scripture Christian are you going to damn that person to hell because of their beliefs..

"blacksburg" Discussed on The Audible with Feldman And Mandel

"It's hard to somehow, someway, they're gonna figure out the logistics and make that happen from your reporting is that much of a slam dunk or way more complicated. I think it's it's just a very complicated process. And I'll put it this way. Nothing. None of the hurdles are impassable every obstacle. That is put out there. It can be handled. But to get to actually get the framework and the logistics of making eighteen playoff Sumi goes eight. Or even six work is just a lot of work. I mean, it starts with again like just the wear and where you're going to play these games. I if you just open up that conversation and the answer is very oh. Well, just play them the third week of December. They'll be the quarterfinals on campus well finals finals, fines rascals out schools out fry having a big event in Blacksburg Virginia or Clemson, South Carolina on two weeks notice and you're gonna again, this is going to be a playoff game. It's going to have eight thousand people hotel rooms like remember whenever people say like do it in the F C S. What can we started doing the, well, there's not eighty thousand people going to those games and everything that goes with it? So big twelve four big twelve Commissioner, Dan Beebe and listen be a staunch opponent of playoff in general. He was a guy who he was out of the room by the time they made the playoff. But you know, he he made that point of listen. I would go to an F C championship game at Murray state. And there are more cars in the parking lot at WalMart across the screen like these are major events to do on two weeks notice in small towns. There's again, there's finals there's the TV element of when are you gonna play these games in what TB windows or play them was? Well, that's easy. You just play them on the Saturday after you hand out the Heisman. Well, the NFL plays games on those Saturdays. And if you're going to play games against the NFL ESPN's going to say, okay, we're giving you I don't know a hundred million dollars less because we're going to get less ratings. Because no matter what you say about your great playoff game. In addition, the ESPN, which already doesn't have a great relationship with with the NFL Pissy NFO more either. No. I mean, listen, the NFL almost stuck a playoff game on the night of the of the college football the final no of the final they were tempted to put. Off game on the final night. And they were basically were not scared of the college football playoff final. So when people say like, well, the NFL doesn't want to know the NFL will put their games anywhere and be more than half the starting point as you would have to work around the so so so you already are yori don't know when you're going to play these games, and where like already that is a again, it's not it's not impossible to figure it out. But just that step needs work, and the other thing I would say is far as delay Delaney and his comments it is definitely significant. If Jim Delany wants to talk about an eighteen playoff that is absolutely no doubt kudos to the Atlantic and kudos to Nicole for writing that story. But I don't know if there is a lot of other commissioners who are jump on board there, and I would also and this is listen, this is just me, and my sort of like analysis of that comment from. Delaney. I wonder how much Jim Delaney's working the refs at this point. I totally think and thinking like, I don't know if necessarily I'm dying to get to eight, but I wanna make sure that people in that room in that community. And this is not something that I wrote my story, but I'll just give you my opinion on this one I want I want I think I wonder how much Delaney is thinking I want the people in that committee room to start taking into account that the SEC works of break in their November schedule and like filter factoring that in want those teams I want the people in that room to start..
