Or that after the show we send out Sue's Stack, a list of every topic I've discussed along with clickable hot links to every source of information I've shared with you on the air. It's all completely free and available over at Tom .TV. T -H -O -M .TV. Check it out. Welcome back. 34 minutes past the hour. Picking up your calls here and anything goes weekend. Norma in Montgomery, Alabama. Hey Norma, what's on your mind today? Hi Tom. Our call to talk about today is the day they're supposed to have our ready new redistricting and they have not made any kind of announcement. They're supposed to have been presented this to morning the feds. But there's a big fight going on. There's the map drawn on that is more or less what the Democratic Party wants. And then there's the map with the Republican Party and what they want down the southern border between Alabama and Florida. There are some extremely wealthy white people who do not want to be in the new black districts. But all of this Republican control, you remember Don Siegelman and what happened when Bob Riley got elected. And since then, they have had more or less control here. And some of the maps they're showing essentially clump some of the very richest people their into own little small districts. And I don't know how long this I'm hoping that we will have an answer and I can call you back next week and tell you. But, you know, this is going on also in Mississippi and Louisiana. If each state were to get a second Democratic district, this will weaken the Republican Party and maybe they will lose seats in the House and might we wind up with a majority next year. Almost certainly. And, yeah, and if you give me a sec, a little second. A friend of mine lives on the Blue Ridge Mountains. There was an illegal clear cutting on the Virginian side. All the water coming down on the mountain on the North Carolina side is now polluted. Her kidneys are failing. This is her drinking water. Anybody living in North Carolina, that water, you need to stop using it. It's, you know, she's going to the hospital. Wow. Yeah. And it was illegal. They did not have permit and which equipment they use is leaking all type of fluids, hydraulic fluid, oil fluid, transmission fluid, and it's coming down off the mountain into the creek. Wow. I'm so sorry to hear that, Norma. I'm not surprised, but I'm so sorry to hear it. Yeah. She's one of our burning people. Wow. Well, give her our very best regards. Yeah. I told her to call the Southern Poverty Law Center. There you go. Okay. Well, thanks. There you go. Norma, thank you for the call. Anybody? Go ahead. Okay. Bye. Okay. Bye -bye. Kevin in Durham, North Carolina. Hey, Kevin, What's on your mind today? Hey, Tom. I don't know if you've been talking about this huge diversity surrounding this country song that's out right now called Try That in a Small Town or something that. like Yeah. Yeah. It's basically a song about lynching. He filmed the video for it in a town where lynching took place. Yeah. I just wanted to say as a black male, just remind people, you know, there's a long history in this country of racist vigilantism. And, you know, these people about talk law and order. That doesn't apply to them. It applies to people like me. Law and order was this for catchphrase arresting black people. I mean, it's just that simple. Pure and simple. Right. I mean, they don't have a problem with violence. All you got to do is look at January 6th. Look at how they stood with Cal they stood with a guy that killed a black jock. Not that, well, that, too, but the black guy in New York. So they don't have a problem with violence. What matters to them is who's doing it. So I just want to make that point. Yeah. Well, point made, Kevin, and Well, thank you very much. It is a disgrace. It frankly is a disgrace. And I haven't been talking about him this week. I just don't want him to get more oxygen. I mean, the more people talk about more him, records the he sells is clearly what's going on. And the Republicans have turned this into a cause and I just think it's deplorable. Kevin, thank you. Thank you for the call. Jessica in Chicago. Jessica, what's on your mind Hi, Tom. Congratulations on your book. I'm going to get it. And I think your show helped get Chris Christie on the debate stage because, you know, everyone, the caller got a lot of people to donate, I believe. Yeah, I think we might've had an effect. I believe you did. And I'm going to donate to Roland Trias running for Senate in Texas. I hate Cruz and getting I'm friends to help out with that too, because that's, that's so important. We need to do that. And today I'm also calling DOJ to say, get a grand jury the case in New Jersey. And that seems like a case with fewer documents for Trump's attorneys to receive and might be speedy or trial. So I, Jack Smith may have it in the works, but I'm still going to encourage him. Yeah. Good. That's great. Yes, thank you. And then with the second and third degree, I saw in the news just recently in the South there in the emergency room, not only heat strokes, but a lot of people came in with second and third degree burns. This story just popped up in the Guardian. So in Phoenix, they are Dr. Cara Geren, an emergency room physician at Valley Wise Health in Phoenix, told NBC News that the burns suffered when people pass out and fall on superheated outdoor surfaces such as roads and sidewalks are severely disfiguring to the point where you have to have what's called a skin graft. She said that they've gotten like over 100 people who have these severe burns from contact with pavement. and she said that her burn unit in the ER in that hospital is full. Oh, Tom, that's disgusting. And Abbott not allowing people to have water, a water break. He's got damage. Damn it, too. Yeah, I'm with you. It's inhumane. Jessica, thank you. Spot on. Norm in Tampa, Florida. Hey, Norm, you're on the air. What's up? Uh, Norm? Norm? Hello, Norm? Yeah, okay. Norm's not listening. David in North Miami Florida. Hey, David, what's on your mind today? Hey, y 'all. Yes, sir. I'm Um, making progress with my run for mayor. They've been for NMB. Um, and I want insurance for Americans now that billionaires and fake billionaires have decided they can just get rid of all whether six million at a time COVID. through I'm sure Elon Musk wants to get rid of a third of us because he misread thread hate trackers guide. So I want protection. I want us all to have I'm glad we have subsidized internet down here, but there is law no because we

"And he said let me empty it out for you and we decided though just keep it full and his heavy as possible because it's funnier or of carrying too much stuff is in more stuff than i can. Balance is funny. And if i drop it in the take you know it happens but we don't plan on it but just i don't know giving somebody too much stuff to carry or you know just a a couple of water that's a little bit to full.

They don't make a noise when you walk That's a bad example but stuff like that. We'll just say thanks. I was about to say that's a great example.

And there's there are these little. I don't know how what the percentage is but a percentage of people and i'm in that percentage when i hear my shoe squeak because my heels rubbing in it i feel embarrassed about it and i wanna make it stop and it's it's lovely that to to sort of celebrate all those things and to have that be a kind of consistent texture of tv show is great the stage that you set with the tone of everything. Just leave so much room for subtle tenderness just throughout and and the joy that is found like in the the who episode is it's such as Ah bolt you know it's Oh i had a question about that too in that in the show. It sort of implies bean kind of sheltered somehow. It does that something like the because you didn't you hadn't heard that song. Yeah that resonates with me.

And he was like band halen just as like that's cool. I'd never heard that before. A rock band. You know long long time but just you're kind of subject to either what's around when you're growing up and i wasn't allowed to listen to the radio or anything like that and then once i was i was fourteen or fifteen and it was just punk rock people that i was around and so like i heard for gazi and was like deleon to you.
