"And now that they're dealing with, they dealt with some of the things they did deal with with their kids in schools or day cares. I couldn't agree with you. I think the shame of it again not to repeat the theme is, unfortunately, a lot of those people are down in Florida now, right? They picked up, they got the hell out. If you look at the Florida school systems, by the way, although still challenges, and you're still going to have left wing nut job teachers that get stuck in the system. The state of Florida has gone from 40th to third now. An SAT scores. I mean, they're on the road path to be number one when it comes to SAT scores. And again, going back to actual facts, okay. Well, that's to me is a big deal, right? Like it's working. It's going in the right direction. It's still not perfect, but it's going in the right direction. While you continue to see New York drift down and down and down. And of course, the old school argument used to be well. We've got the best schools. Well, that's all crap now. That's not true. When it comes to the argument, I don't feel like the Republican Party did to your point. We should bring more data, right? That's what Bobby jindal did very well in Louisiana. So you remember he invoked a charter or a voucher system in the state. And Obama and Eric holder, the two racists that they were. Sued them because again, under the claim of equity, I always love this equity, right? Well, it wasn't equitable they claimed. So they sued the state to block it because they claim that only the non minority kids would take advantage of it. It was an opportunity that they saw it for white kids to get out of failing minority districts. But what Bobby jindal was, okay, fine, I'll meet you in court. When he showed up, he showed that 98% of the people taking advantage of the vouchers were actually the minority kids, black and Hispanic that were their parents were dying. They would chew off their own arm to get them out of the failing school district and into a better school district.

Is Sarah Huckabee Sanders Vying for a VP Ticket?
"There's a new CNN poll out there that says well over 70% of you thought the president did a good job last night. Over 40% of Republicans said that the president did a good job as well. What was your take? How do you think Sarah Huckabee Sanders did with the Republican rebuttal? I thought she bottled pretty darn well. And that's always a hard speech. And go back to Marco Rubio with the glass of water, where he was chugging water, remember that tobacco, and then you had Bobby jindal, the governor of Louisiana, he was supposed to be the next darling of the Republicans, and the guy sped red through the entire speed. Nobody could understand what the guy was saying. He was talking so fast. But I thought Sarah Huckabee Sanders did a fine job. She really did illustrate the point that the Republican Party is the party of the future. She is the youngest governor in America. 40 years old. President Biden by comparison is 80 years old. It was a rather striking comparison. So I'm curious to get your take on Biden and Sanders. Part of me wondered if Sanders was maybe maybe running for a vice presidential slot. On a Trump ticket. Could be, but I don't think so. 8

"So I would probably shake his hand and then say nothing. Or may we say my peace, mister president, I assume you are aware of how many people are entering every day, week, month, illegally, and maybe that would be it. But I do, I always ask myself the question, what would I do? What would I at least ideally do? It's hard to know how one would react. I'm not drawing any parallel. I want to make that clear for the people who like to take snippets of me out of context. But I had an analogous problem when I visited death row, and I discussed it on the radio at the time. How many years ago would you say that was in Louisiana? 7, think about 7 years ago? Yeah. Yeah. So I actually broadcast from Louisiana. Bobby jindal. So Bobby jindal was on the show, he was fascinating. It was a very funny moment. He actually came to my hotel room from which I was broadcasting with my mobile broadcast box, the comrade Xbox. But for whatever reason he came early and I greeted him in my underwear. Or my pet. I don't know if I had my pants on. I don't want to overstate this case. He was very, very cool about it, but you don't normally greet a governor. In such a way, he came too early for whatever reason. Anyway, I'm a very serious note, I thought about this when I was told that my wife and I would visit, this was an Angola state penitentiary, the largest state prison in the country was in Louisiana. And we were allowed my wife and I to enter death row. And I remember asking myself, it was a very strong internal debate. What do I say to these men? And I'll tell you why it was such a debate. These men presumably be on a shadow of a doubt had murdered at least one person. They thought of the terror that the person who was murdered experienced, not to mention a shortened life, and I thought of the loved ones of the murdered, and I thought, would they want me to make nice? Hey, good to meet you. How are you doing? On the other hand, there's a non human element. To somebody extending his hand to you in closed quarters of this row of cells that constituted death row, and what do I do just ignore the hand, say nothing? Just stare at them? Because then there's a voice in me that says, you know, they too were created in God's image as evil. As they might be or the evil that they did, anyway, I reached some sort of compromise. I would, if they're extended a hand, I would shake it. And not say much..

"Madam vice president. So let me tell you something. As a former prosecutor who specialized in crimes of violence against women and girls in particular child sexual assault and rape, the idea that after a woman has endured such violence to her body, that she would not have the freedom and authority to decide whether she wanted to continue with a pregnancy that is a result of an act of violence is absolutely unthinkable. Yeah. Jody, we also, you know, we've been talking, I mean, all of these apparently the strategy for Republicans is try to cast Democrats is extreme on this and you know how late they went late term abortion and the federal funding for abortion and blah blah. They're the ones that have gotten so extreme. No exceptions. In some cases, not even for the life of the mother. I mean, that's extreme, rape, incest, all of it. It 6 weeks is ridiculous. It is. You don't even know you're pregnant yet. I mean, what's liability? 24 weeks? I mean, I don't even know. I mean, they have gotten so extreme in terms of, and again, what do you do? We exist for freedom of religion in this country. So what do you say the Jewish religion is wrong to say you are not alive until you draw your first breath? Yeah. You can't declare somebody on your taxes until they're actually born. Right. I mean, just these yes, the all of these ridiculous arguments. It is not a heartbeat. 6 weeks or whatever it is. It's electrical activity. It's a clump of cells. Pardon me, I'm getting all exercise. Kevin in D.C., you're on with Jodi. Hello cab. Good morning, everybody. Good morning. Good morning, John. Good morning, alfven angel. Hello. And by the way, he made an Archie's mentioned earlier. I would have been more impressed if he said one of the everyone knows should the sugar you see. You should have been more impressive by saying jingle's angle. Ari, I didn't go several cuts deep on the archeologist. But, you know, Bobby jindal years ago that he started the Republican Party being the stupid party. Yes. Well, I have to say, and you guys alluded to it earlier. What you mentioned earlier since 2010 when I was a fundraiser for the Democratic Party. Why are you finding it seems like a two plus two thing? Okay, you look at two binary choice we have one party that's driving you do everything you want. The other one is the remarkably not even hiding anymore, demonstrably blocking you. Right. And if you don't have to be a history Maven, to use the Google machine and see that every democratic thing that we got done, it wasn't the president alone. FDR didn't do everything by himself. He had a strong house, a democratic house and Senate. LBJ didn't get anything by himself. He had a strong house in Senate. He's huge. If you want that same result, do the same thing here. How are you blaming Biden and how do you think we're going to get Medicare for All? How do you think we're going to get rid of gun legislation? How do you think we're going to codify roe V wade? All of it. Voting rights. That's the building block, right? I mean, it's okay. By the way, could I have some apology music? Amy Campbell tweets comparing Ted Cruz to a douche nozzle is

"Of the Union is tonight. Wow. I'm more interested to hear the Republican rebuttal Kim Reynolds as the governor of Iowa, and is a great governor, by the way, and does a terrific job. She is going to be giving the rebuttal, that's always a difficult thing for the Republicans. A lot of times it's just hard giving a speech like that if you're just staring into a camera, that's just a weird thing if you're not used to being a news anchor or something of that nature. I thought the best job was done many years ago by a former governor of Virginia whose name just slipped my mind. But he actually delivered that in the state House in Richmond, and there was a big audience there, and I thought it was a pretty good, pretty good speech. Bobby jindal. Remember him? Bobby jindal, the governor of Louisiana, was talked about as a possible presidential candidate until he delivered the rebuttal and it was just like a speed reading course. It sounded like Ben Shapiro. You couldn't understand what the guy was saying. He talks too fast. You guys know what I'm talking. I like Shapiro, but the guy talks a mile a minute. Come on. So again, I think Kim Reynolds is going to do a great job. She has a terrific backstory. She and I met each other years ago. We were speaking at a gathering in Iowa for an activist group and it was a fun time and I think that she is going to hit a home run tonight. Tim Scott, I thought did a good job. The last time he gave one of the bubbles. Hey, let's go to the patriot mobile newsmaker line, always good to have with us from the Trump team, our good friend Liz Harrington Liz, hope you're doing good. Hey, Todd, I'm good. How are you? You know, I'm doing well. And you guys have to be feeling pretty good coming off that huge, huge weekend at cpac where the president was really given a hero's welcome. Oh, absolutely. And it was such an incredible speech. I mean, you're talking about the State of the Union. I mean, that was a State of the Union address. I mean, that's what's going on in the country. I mean, there's no need for Joe Biden to get up there tonight and try to stumble his way through a bunch of lies. Because president Trump said it all on Saturday and you're right, it was incredible reception. I mean, I think it was a 97% approval rating in cpac, but it was just a great time and an incredible speech. When you look at all of the problems facing America and my column is up today over on our website, I say the State of the Union is a dumpster fire. What do you think? What do you think the number one issue facing the country is right now? Oh gosh. There's so many. What has to be, I think, inflation and gas prices. Our border is got to be up there. Our lack of standing in the world after the Afghanistan withdrawal, just the turmoil. I mean, what they're doing on the world stage right now is so dangerous. They're practically trying to start World War three. It's totally unnecessary. He abandoned the abandoned all of president Trump's incredible policies that were working, not just for the American people, but for around the world. I mean, we had peace. We had no new wars. And now you look everything's a disaster, like you just said, it's a total dumpster fire, but it's really scary times, honestly. And when you look at all the different things, domestically and abroad, there's nothing going well right now. And the real scary thing is, all of these things seem to be by design to hurt America. I mean, the decisions they're making. If they wanted to go against Putin right now, you know what they would do, they'd open up Anwar. They would re approve the Keystone pipeline. They secure our border. They would do these things to make America strong to make us a net exporter of oil and natural gas like we were under president Trump for the first time in whatever, and that's what you would do. But they're not doing that. They're doing everything they can to not just cause turmoil and chaos around the world, but to hurt our own citizens. And as what gets me Liz, I mean, you've got liquor stores that are pulling off the Russian made vodka from the shelves and paramount, a Warner Brothers are pulling The Batman movie from Russian theaters. And look, that's all well and good, but at the same time America still buy an oil and gas from Russia. So in a way, we're funding what's happening in Ukraine right now. Exactly right, we gave Putin all the card to play. We totally just handicapped ourselves for no good reason. It's absolutely absurd. And you're right, all those moves are just superficial and for propaganda purposes, but the reality and the things that could really be done to hurt Putin and to bring stability, those aren't being done. And that's why you have to ask why. Every decision they've made from the way they pulled out of Afghanistan, which was a 13 Americans dead in so many more wounded. The way they've just dismantled our border, given it entirely away. The way they're facilitating law breaking by sending all these illegal aliens all across the country and the middle of the night. I mean, this is lawlessness. It is out of control. The American people are just so tired of it. They want stability they want strength. And I think they really want president Donald J Trump back in The White House. Yeah,.

"Texas with the big state, big state school with a lot of talent here that you can recruit to and you don't have to worry about Texas coming and grabbing some of it. So there are some reasons there are plenty of reasons for him to stay. There are some reasons for him to want to go. And I think he's the one that sells Scott Woodward know before he moves on to somebody else in my opinion. Scott explained this, a and M fans, not in advance, but a and a people pretty high up were telling me and pushing back about this, saying that, yeah, you can pay the money and yeah, the relationship's great, but LSU structurally is flawed. It was a couple of years ago when it looked like they were about to go under financially. I don't know. I don't live down there, you do. And I know some of this matters and some of it doesn't, but because could you deal with that part of the equation from a fiscal standpoint? Well, yes. The previous governor, Bobby jindal, there was of course, you know, it's like the Louisiana state, but the state law, you have to balance the budget every year. So there's only certain places you can cut the state budget. And one of them is higher education. And there were a lot of general wasn't one of the race taxes, and there were a lot of cuts, the higher education during his 8 years as governor. And lss has had to try to recover from that since and under the current administration with John bell Edwards. Things are better. The state actually had a surplus for this year. And where to spend the money? So those things are changing. So yeah, there's also a textile items endowment, of course not. They have as many deep pocketed boosters, of course not. But they have enough boosters to get together the $16.9 million that took their on to pay him off. And they've got the money lined up to pay over $8 million if they have to do his staff to make all those guys go away. They probably keep one or two people, you know, they have to be prepared for that. Scott Woodward is from here. He is a veterans guy. He's not you guys. He knows people in power, people with money. People who want to see LSU win. And look, again, not to pick up technically too much, but what has to say and I'm done that's all that great athletically. They won the women's national championship in college basketball. They want some track titles. Everyone in football since the 30s, they haven't won been to the final four or anything like that men's basketball and been to the college world, haven't won the college World Series. I mean, it does seem like a program that kind of runs with its feet tied together sometimes. And having Texas come in is not going to help that situation. So obviously, they should feel great about it. Look, they've done they've done a lot for Jimbo. They've done as much as they can. But it doesn't mean that the heart doesn't want what it wants. And if his heart wants to be here, I don't think there's any thing they can SID to keep in mind as far as his ranch goes in Texas. Part of Kim mulkey's contract was a certain I don't know what the figure is. I want to say like $80,000 of private plane travel per year. Basically to go back to Waco and see her grandchildren, if she wants to. I thought Jimbo Fisher could get a clause like that. They go to his ranch in Texas if you wanted to. Scott, not to sound like a lawyer here, but I'm going to. Having heard everything you said, and I hear you, loud and clear. And I know the answer may involve the Scott Woodward's predecessor, but isn't it true? Jimbo had a great opportunity to come back to LSU a couple of years ago and turned it down. Jimbo, I think would have come in 2015. Joe Oliver wanted to fire less miles into the 2015 season. And now we know even more what he wanted to fire less miles, right? Because this come out in the hush Blackwell report into all these all the allergies problems with title 9 issues and sexual harassment stuff on campus that he was involved in some of the stuff himself. And leave a way to fire him for cause. So it was they wanted to harm them, but they decided to keep him in 2016. There was still a little flirtation, but the money kept going up and they're like, they focused on Tom Herman, and of course agent wanted to talk to Texas. And finally, I said, we're hiring. We're hiring it. And so they went from there. But yeah, I mean, there are some people here who will tell you that LSU people boosters for people in the university feel burned by their flirtations with Jimbo from the past. And they're not going back there again. And that may be the case too. But I think Scott Woodward gets his way, this is a guy who would like to hire most of all. Alex Scott is he's made a name for himself as hiring big coaches. He made two hires here that are pretty popular. And the baseball cost J Johnson really coached a game yet, but this land of the number one recruiting class in the country yesterday. He's got some cloud to get things done that he wants to get done if he can pull them off. Sky rabbi, I don't think this will be the last time we talk about this subject. Many, many thanks for coming on. We appreciate it. I always will tell you, Paul, thank you. You got it. I'll tell you what. That's the most interesting and compelling argument I've heard yet for Jimbo, whether you buy it or not, it has more to do with Texas coming in to the SEC in a couple of years. And it's not it is worth remembering the reaction of Aggie land when that news broke. Think about that for a second. We'll take a break. More to.

"How do you engage them in. Sort of speak to them in a meaningful way. So i hear. Jane come back to you. I i hear you talking about this progressive coalition and i hear ruined talking about kind of this new and fresh and way of speaking across these divisions. But i gotta say. I lived in louisiana under bobby jindal and i have been nikki. Haley watcher for a long time. And and i wanna just sort of digging a little bit on any kind of maybe challenging a kind of presumption that the proudly diverse category that is a api much less api elected officials are all necessarily progressive and in the twenty twenty election to women from california. Michelle steele young kim. Both representing orange county and parts of it both defeated democrats. Who won in the two thousand. Eighteen interim midterm elections. They're both republicans and very strong republican so even in california. There's a there is a diversity of opinions and certainly A diversity of party loyalties and so it. It brings me to kind of this challenge around both descriptive and substantive representation that i think often emerges for communities of color. Sometimes it's been talked about around candidates who are not who got men or Also queer candidates How do we balance. Both the very real need for and desire for descriptive representations And sort of an interest in one's own ideological representation. Well i think this is part the challenge in you've seeing this playing out in different ways Just take the term south asian itself. Now this is actually a contested term. It's not like everybody. Arise from nepal. Obama show pakistan comes and sits. I'm south asian. It is sort of a socialized process by which people come to embrace somewhat progressive kind of a set of ideas and that can sort of manifest many different ways but when people referred themselves south asians. There is a certain kind of reaching across the aisle process saying like maybe indian-american american but i Maybe i'm hindu. But i actually believe in. Fighting is on the phobia for instance or not just ascribing to model minority sort of notions the success narrative and perhaps talked about class Solidarity as well showing for taxi drivers in the case of new york city where somebody's council members who are south asian. Were on the front lines or taking part in a hunger strikes because they realize it's very important to do the work of fighting against class boy tation labor exploitation And then you have other candidates around the country who basically don't necessarily they live and much more you know segregated neighborhoods on. They may be seen as good non white candidates and they work for certain systems When you're referring jane was referring to young cam and others You know it struck me. I remember like right. After the atlantic killings earlier this year congressional hearings addressing hate crimes against asian-americans and a bunch of asian american men and women in office. They sort of toed the party. Line a republican party line that you know the real problem really isn't all this hate crimes really access to higher education in ivy leagues. Where they're like fighting us so it's really to me at the time the coin i eat. It was kind of stunning right after the atlanta shootings to see that. But you see this other formation happening to these things were playing out increasingly. there are people who definitely Speak to i guess the power and maintaining power and white supremacy and those kind of things in new ways and others who are pushing back jane. I'm interested in thinking. Not only about some of these wins for candidates and actually have a few more to talk about but also about asian american voters. Api voters as voters. And you know. Obviously everyone is dissecting in a million different ways. What happened in the virginia gubernatorial election. But i'm wondering if you see any role that that could have been played. That wasn't by voters in in virginia or that in fact manifested and and help to make this decision for a republican governor in that state. I don't know that it was a huge surprise. The outcome of that election and i think it's important to juxtapose that potentially with new jersey and also let's think back to the special Two thousand and twenty election for the senate races in twenty one in georgia where asian american voters credited in in that state with helping to push to democrats over the top and think. It's a little bit early to say where we don't have great exit. Poll data really great data at all to find out where and how asian american voters were mobilized and if they were indeed mobilized for whom the size of the population of a pi voters in both virginia. New jersey is larger than in georgia. So they form. I think an important potential swing group of swing voters and it's important to emphasize the notion of swing because while the ruinous correct asian americans tend to lean democratic particularly indian american. So i will note are among the largest immigrant asian groups in the united states but also among the newest with the majority of them arriving in the united states after nineteen ninety-six. You do you know you're always going to find once a indians who've been here for longer than that but for the most part they're relatively new population and have been much more socialized to democratic politics on the flip side. You'll see groups like vietnamese americans who vote much more republican than certainly indians and in general more republican overall. It helps to account for why you see the the winds mung even if tight wins among republican candidates in orange county which has a large vietnamese population. So all. I think it's a little bit early to say the role that asian-americans played but note that swing voters are not only people that just decide to change their mind from one election to another but they might also be swing voters because they're just not sure about the politics yet and the politics in this meaning. Which party do they belong to. One of the largest categories within the frequency distribution of partisanship among asian-americans is no preference not sure independent and this is in part because the majority of asian american voters in the united states are are not native born but foreign born there. Naturalized citizens takes a little while to become knowledgeable about politics in the united states around. I want to sort of zero in just a bit. More on on south asians. You've been sort of talking about and giving us some reflections on What do you think is most frequently misrepresented or misunderstood in media. Conversations around voters In addition to elected officials met voters who are south asian. Well i certainly think that most people can't grasp the incredible diversity a within this this term. I mean we're talking about one point five to one point. Seven billion people just saying off the top my head in that region of south asia that were representing incredible ling- linguistic diversity incredible range of educational experiences Languages all these things and just like sociopolitical backgrounds. They're coming from when they come here. Although we have this sort of notion that many of them are highly educated in this country that many of them are You know making well about the median american income. Which many of them are How do you sort of square that. With the fact that many are also in working class neighborhoods may be struggling to put you know food on the table They may be dealing with a assault indignities humiliation on the street or in the workplace wherever in ways that many people don't necessarily see or hear about because those stories are not being elevator told You know there's such a range it's very unwieldy term and i don't think we broadly speaking really know how to i mean even in the community. It's very it's very kind of like like. Do we really use termer. Not you know like Salvation as well as asian american unwieldy So i think that's the problem that people don't necessarily know how to square the the idea of the anti-american dr are making. You know like half a million a year with the person who is an undocumented immigrant in queens Who has a totally different set of problems and ambitions and ideas of what they're dealing with. I'm reminded of of recent data showing that in terms of income inequality that it's actually grown most rapidly within so internal that broad and diverse category that has api right that So if you think just of income as as indicating sort of one understanding of a group of people right that both the highest one fifth and the lowest quintile represented With this kind of broad tax. Great it's such an odd like get in the american racial binary right sort of what we do with a api as a political identity. Yeah yeah i mean. I think i think it's going to be a long time before we understand even within. Api issues like how formative this pandemic is going to be. I think it's gonna take time. I understand that stinky of one of these Five new asian americans entrance city council new york city. One of them julie juliane. I met her at a A protest against anti asian Violence that happened earlier this year. She wasn't there by herself. She was there with a companion. Non asian companion who she said is her bodyguard. Like one of several she says. I don't leave my home without a non asian companion. Because i feel so unsafe. I've also taken up jujitsu which i started learning as a kid but that sense of threat you know of potential violence. It's fairy wheel for a lot of people in the community. And i think also it's. It's sort of a very fast and harsh sort of training in the history of this country in what imperialism means and how it can be three or four generations into living here. But you're still authorized you know as we saw all too clearly with what's happened with the you know the the the so called chinese flu this kind of stuff that's deployed so easily and and I think i think these issues that are really gonna potentially drive young people who are coming of agents moment and convince them that the only way to change these things is to is to acquire power.

"Story about New Orleans. Paul said he wanted to share and I made him. I made him stop, and I told him he could tell the story later, and I'm still curious as to what it is, Uh, tell us, Paul Well, a little more than a year after, uh, after I arrived, we had Hurricane Gustav and that was a pretty powerful storm Category four storm and And of course, the levees had not been completely completely rebuilt and reinforced. So we were kind of bracing ourselves. So The city obviously tried to get ahead of the game this time around, and we work to actually evacuate the entire city. We literally evacuated the entire city. Uh, with the exception of about 20,000 individuals. For one reason or another could not leave themselves or they needed significant assistance in order to do evacuations. And there were I think, 18,000, I think was 18 20,000 people so So the governor at the time, Bobby Jindal had contracted out with US companies. And they were supposed to be 800 buses. Cut Come to ferry people out. Well, only 76 showed up. So, yeah. So I got a call from the state Superintendent Paul past track, asking me if we could use our school buses and reach out to the other regions and use school buses to provide the buses needed to To move the people. Well, you know, I had half the bus is needed and the suburban communities head to head up the they called parishes. They had to have two buses needed. And there were 400 buses. The only problem with the buses were all the drivers had evacuated the city and they take and they have taken their keys with them. And so so these buses have a master keep so so I had a I had a round up like 400 drivers, and we actually got the National Guard to provide the drivers. Even though none of these guys were licensed these young kids he's even guardsmen were Or where equipped to write the drive a bus and they had ever even ridden a bus. And of course I had to go. I had to go to a key Smith. They have 400 keys made and I remember walking in to the key. Smith and I had a key. And he asked me how many keys that I needed. And I told them for this group of buses. I told him I needed 276 keys. And I swear he he didn't look surprised at all. He just He took the key and I remember coming back. Coming back. The The next day, and he had not only made the keys, but he was dressed in. It Looks like he addressed in a hazmat suit. It looked like a scene out of contagion. And there were a little silver. Filings all over the place, and but he had made my sack of keys and we gave the keys to these these young national guard as designated bus drivers, and obviously we we evacuated. Fortunately, I Zach, Fortunately, the Levys held and Isaac veer to the left. So it kind of brushed us and then carved a path of destruction all the way up to Baton Rouge. So we were able to to that bullet, But I'll tell you, it took months. It seemed like months for us, Uh, could finally get the last of the buses because some of the remember we had 18 buses that they were like they did disappear. It They were never returned, and and the buses have numbers on top of them. So we had helicopters flying up and down the interstate, looking for wayward buses. So it was quite the experience. Yeah, I can laugh at it now because It was amazing. We evacuated the entire city. And I remember driving through the city at night and there was absolutely no vandalism. Absolutely no vandalism, no destruction. Nothing people evacuated. I remember. We would inspector schools and You know there was not there was just It was amazing how orderly people were and how they really work together, particularly after the Katrina experience, But I remember I remember because I had to pay for the keys out of my pocket. And I remember trying to get the courage to communicate to tell my wife that we're going to have like a $4000 bill on our credit card. Because I was buying keys for buses. So anyway, that's money. That's my favorite New Orleans story. Hey, Paul, Um Jean Lafitte, Louisiana is that close to New Orleans? Uh, yeah. You know, it's not that far away. I don't think I've ever been to defeat myself. Well, the reason I ask is because the Washington Post has two pictures side by side and they have a picture of something called By you Veritas area and that neighborhood and that what It looks like before and what it looks like now, and I know we were talking about how the levees have held, But whether or not the levy has held it sure looks like that particular body of water has. I guess that might be storm surge gone over the levee because the picture on the left Shows a firm line of where the water is contained. And the picture on the right The water is everywhere. We'll defeat the feet. Uh, is one of those areas that hugs the coastline, and so so when you have a a storm surge You know the levees may hold, but that doesn't keep the water from from flowing over the levees. The problem with New Orleans is not only was the water flowing over the levees, but the levees. I think something like 50 50, or 60 of the levees collapsed in like 50 or 60, different areas, So those floodwaters just literally literally. I just float into the cities like the ocean coming in. That's right, particular ninth Ward, and that's why you see those pictures of those, you know, just a housing tops, you know, and people involved. I remember my my introduction to Sean Penn was when it came to New Orleans to try to rescue people who were standing on top of her. Their homes. And, you know, later on Brad Pitt went down there. And you, actually, yeah, the building of homes and and in the Lower ninth Ward, which is the most vulnerable area and the poorest area of the city. And and they built these homes on stilts, so they're like elevated homes, So you know, so you saw a lot of that new I'm because people did not want to abandon a lot of people said the Lower ninth Ward. Once you just shut it down or, you know, why should why can't we build our levees and you know, people who have been there for generations are reluctant to give that up. I mean, the Dutch were able to figure out how to keep the seats back and So obviously they had to do some innovative things in order to provide the protection that was long overdue. Because Lord Ninth Ward in New Orleans had historically been neglected for all those all those reasons that poor areas are have have traditionally been neglected in this country, So but that was that was quite an experience. And just in case those of you who are listening. Think that we are done with Ida. We are now, according to The Washington Post, there is they're looking at widespread and potentially life threatening flooding. In the Northeast. From what's left of Ida. They're showing that around the area of like Wilkesboro, Pennsylvania, will spar. Pennsylvania Hartford, Pennsylvania. There's this. There's this map, but it's the potential for flooding eases, obviously, the farther away you get, but they're showing a map that includes even a risk in Portland, Maine, and Raleigh Durham, North Carolina. It's it's we are not done with Ida yet and, you know, add that too. I mean, Paul, you and I haven't even talked.

I don't know, but people used to say that about Scott Walker in Wisconsin. Just a suit Well, when it came to The realities of trying to get the nomination. Yeah, you have to be dynamic personality. Scott Walker was absolutely going to be the next nominee for the Republican Party in 2016, and he flamed out before anything even happened, You know, because people saw them and they said, no, I don't think so. It's like the Bobby Jindal syndrome. For God's sake, let people talk about you. Don't you speak for yourself? Because it really doesn't come off, well, epic disaster. All right next to any topic, So we figured that out. All right. We've worked those those political infighting, things. Let's do something that it it doesn't really matter at all. But it's It's local news here in DFW, former Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle has a new gig. He has now signed a four year contract with $29 million with the Indiana Pacers. 29 million big ones Now he was a He was the head coach there before he came to the Mavericks. He was the head coach there from 0307. Yeah. I think it was He worked with Larry Bird. When Bird was this roach? Yeah, And then he went to. I think the pistons and then they can him there and I don't remember where l anyway. They Mavericks picked him up. But, yeah, he's going back to Indiana, Indianapolis and Mark Cuban had said, and I'm sure Cuban knew all about this, he said. We don't we're not going to ask for any compensation because Rick Carlisle still had two years on his contract. Sure, so what's going to happen now? Is contracts is thrown out now. I guess that's very nice of both of them. I guess I suppose so. They were happy to be rid of him, and he's happy to be gone. But when everybody is reporting today is what I think it was Rick Carlisle or somebody? One of the former coaches is saying that they should tap Jason Kidd to be the head coach of the interesting kid was at the Nets. I think the year after he retired, Yeah, they had him cause there for a little bit generally do much. I liked everybody thought he was going to be a home run head coach, right And it always amazes me the guys that you think and sometimes they are like you're like I knew when that guy retired. He was going to be a coach and he was going to be great. And I think kid was tapped as that. Just this brilliant basketball mind. You know what's funny is you take a guy, for example, like Michael Jordan, who is possibly the worst owner in the NBA. People hate playing for him because he expects everybody to be Michael Jordan. He's like Ted Williams. Yeah, exactly. Ted Williams. Another great example. Horrible manager, Great ballplayer, but just couldn't translate because everybody's supposed to be like him. Yeah, Why can't you do what? I Yeah. Derek Jeter, Great Baseball player, terrible baseball owner of the Marlins. So If Carlisle wants to go back to Indianapolis, I'm looking at this thinking you're going to Indianapolis from the DFW area. That has to be depressing to think about. Yes, I wonder why he picks these outposts like the F W and the money is good, but Going back to your point about coaches. If I was a guy wanting to get a player, I would look for the guy who was a journeyman and who just found a way to stay in the league for like 18 years. That's the guy I'm like. This guy could be a genius for finding a way to stick around. Yeah, that's that's That's very true. Everybody wants the glamour higher. Yeah, they want the name higher because that's going to sell tickets and hot dogs. But the reality of it is that may not be a great coach for you. You find somebody who was a bench writer for 15 years who has watched the game intently over for years and years. That might be your best strategist. Some of the best coaches Couldn't make it in the major leagues. I want to say, I know Phil Jackson played, but he wasn't Mr All Star Tommy Lasorda is another great example. Never even could make it to the major leagues but was one of the best managers in history. It's a different skill set. That's the deal. Yeah, it really is. Alright. Next trending topic. You know the company JPMorgan Chase Historic American Company, Mega Bank. Well, they're ready to bring employees back. This is our next training topic, even if they're vaccine passport isn't stamped. In a memo obtained by the post that was sent to US employees. Late Wednesday, the bank laid out new guidelines for getting people back to a regular scheduled in office by July six.

"Detroit dot com Across from the Renaissance Center do Michele's a Detroit traditions since 1927 You're hearing the Paul W. Smith Show News Talk 7 60 wjr. Have you seen this morning? Maybe? Yeah. This morning. Yes, you wouldn't be able to see it last night, but Norman, Oklahoma Boy. They've had their hands full with with tornadoes and other issues. But man Oh man, they had a hail storm unlike any I've ever seen. The number of cars that were virtually destroyed by the hail and homes as well. It's just astonishing feat. The damage was unbelievable. Luckily, no reports of any injuries. But, man Oh, man. Look for that video Eventually. Today you'll see it in the news later on tonight, for sure in Norman, Oklahoma, Meanwhile, so the president addressed Congress. It was not a state of the Union address. It just felt like one. It was as long as one like an hour and 10 minutes much longer than I expected, and it certainly appeared to be an expensive one. No question. At least in my mind, the president said. All kinds of things that a lot of people loved hearing. Why not? It's nice when you think you're going to get all that free stuff. But let's let's find out what University of Michigan director of Debate has to say about it in style and substance is well. As we check in with Professor Aaron, Call Aaron Good morning. Welcome back to the Paul W. Smith Show. Good morning. Straight to be that. Tell us what you thought. Yeah, I think it was. It was too long and certainly agree with your observation there. No, these things could be between 20 minutes on over an hour, but it was certainly on the long and compared to some of his previous speeches. I thought that given the high degree of difficulty on that mean in fact have been postponed for a few months and they're happening under such unique circumstances. Um, you know, I think that was admirable, but Maybe, uh, a solid B. Uh, President Biden seems toe benefit from Little expectations, a lot and the kind of stamp poles that were released after the address seem to be favorable. But as you mentioned the it's all about the details and what ends up happening, and if it does, and whether, if Moderates like Joe Mansion on others who are key to the second half of his agenda. Passing were actually a you know, persuaded by maybe some of the members of the public right and there are people who are watching that and they're just hearing the Ding ding being of the cash register in the dollar signs knowing that none of this stuff really is free, and we know who's going to pay for this all taxpayers, even though a lot of taxpayers think they'll get through this and they don't make $440,000 a year, so it's not going to touch them, and then they pull up to the gas pump and find out well. That really is just like a tax increase to as the gas prices go up and up and up and it truly I have to agree. I don't I don't know. Senator Tim Scott didn't know of him very much. Until he gave the the The Republican response, which I'm a fear wasn't seen by as many people because it was so long after the very long speech. But in the Republican rebuttal Uh, I would say that what Senator Tim Scott did was, he urged the country to reject socialist dreams. On. But let's face it when you start talking about free community college free childcare free this free that it does sound as if we are headlong into becoming a socialist nation. And I I'd like somebody to come up with some socialist nations that work. I'm not familiar with that many of them. But what did you think of his? I guess. Rebuttal if you will. Yes. I thought it was also well received on delivered you at the top position to be and we've seen over the unis. Um you know, the Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal. He Bashir and others kind of fail. And then there'd be some in epic viral moments that go. Other popular for the wrong reasons. And so you know, it was. It was a good address. I think that as you mentioned because President Biden speaks for so long, he knows that I saw it in real time was not his eyes. It would normally but I think because it was S o positive and you'll see a lot of clips of bed today and they'll generate positive you cycle. He's center scouts. One has a very bright future. The Republican Party is up for reelection 2022, but said that It'll be his last term. And so he may be seeking even higher office and being a senator. And last night, the high profile nature of his reaction will likely Uh, eat in that then I think he's meeting with the family of George Boyd today and so try toe that momentum momentum just like the president would during his speech. You know, I wonder because your historian and you pay attention to these sorts of things we've got. Aaron call Professor Aaron called University of Michigan director of debate. Weighing in on how the president did and how the rebuttal from Tim Scott, the Republican did. And of course, what happens at a time like this is we have a bunch of people going around, saying, Oh, my goodness. He's the future of the Republican Party. Now is that a weight around his neck or a boost to his future in terms of historically speaking Uh, probably. It's probably not something the kind of bag is you'd wanna have. At this time, but it sets up expectations and then just just the history of kind of what we've seen that those really haven't materialized, But these positions it's It's tough to hit a tough spot to get something that both the Mitch McConnell and McCarthy has to agree upon. And there's a deep bench of people if you start already looking at the 2024 poles of the fact that You selected, I think shows kind of you know what they think of him, And he part of that was because he's really been on the forefront of police reform and has the credibility talked about previous dues. You know where he's been adversely followed and things like that. And so he and if anything is going to pass a big part of the speech last night was President. I'm talking about those efforts that exists in Congress, and you know, those are subject to the filibuster in the Senate. And so you're gonna need 60 votes and 10 Republicans to come over to export it to get any kind of compromise legislation and he would be at the forefront of that. And so he was, I think, really the appropriate well, one the choice for the reaction address. Aaron In the beginning. In terms of presentation you gave the president quote a solid B. What would you give Senator Tim Scott in terms of presentation..
