I tell you what, you know, we try to read everybody's book before we have them on the show. At least one book, because some of them have tons of books. I got to tell you, I didn't read this much in college and I'm being serious. You've read more books in the last two years than you have in the previous, how many, 79? 102? 102. 102. All right. Hey, speaking of that, you had a chronological, we both had a chronological increment recently, so... Yeah, except I started counting backwards, so I'm down to 62 now.

And in real life, he's probably the nicest guy in the world. And that's the way most of them are. It's like Boyd Holbrook, you know, on some of his things like Justified and stuff. He looks like a killer, but then he's really nice in person. Yeah, even Logan and I mean, all the different things. He's been in a lot of stuff. Dial of Destiny, you know.

Now, you also got to head on over. Our favorite mafia queen, Sandy Salvato, the iron fist with the velvet glove rules over all that is Game of Crimes fans. Just go to Facebook and look up Game of Crimes fans, answer a couple easy questions and gain admittance into the inner sanctum where all the hilarity ensues. There you go. Just what he said. That's right. Just what I said. But you know what else I said, Murph? What did you say? I said, guess what time it is? Do you know what time it is? I'm going to ask you one more time because you got to pack. You got a trip coming up and we're doing this kind of late. So guess what time it is, Murph? It's time for Small Town Police Blotter. A little bit of James Bond there. Hey, speaking of James Bond, he would have had nothing to do with this next guy. Murph, I'm telling you. Oh, this one. This one comes out of Nebraska. And I'm telling you, them corn fed farm boys are lonely. Uh -oh. Uh -oh. They're lonely. So there is a few. This just happened October 13th. It's just like today. A funeral home worker was responsible for transporting TED bodies in Nebraska County is under arrest. Well, the felony burglary complaint doesn't really do it justice. So Ryan Smith and a colleague were dispatched last week to a home in Omaha to collect the body of an individual who died there. Now, this guy who died there left something behind, which this guy tried to come back and get. So Ryan Smith called the property manager and claimed that the local sheriff had asked him to collect this item for evidentiary purposes. Now, the property manager's like, nah, I'm dumb, but not that dumb. He denied it, but he later came back and heard noises emanating from the unit which had been locked from the inside with a deadbolt and the chain. After Smith exited the home with his clothes disheveled, the property manager called cops who busted him on a felony burglary charge. So Murph, why do you think they would want to seek DNA samples? Oh, no. Because the item left behind was a sex doll. And this guy returned. Oh, that's not what I was thinking. That's not quite so bad. I was thinking cadaver. No, no, no, no, no. This was a sex doll. The guy was removed from the house, but he left his sex doll behind. I don't know, maybe that's why he died. Maybe it was a good time. Sally, I told you to get your ass in the car. Yeah, guess what? He came and went at the same time. Oh, that was terrible. That was terrible. You know, when I went through the West Virginia State Police Academy, they'd wake you up in the middle of the night. You had to go out and do searches for a lost child. And the doll's name was Sally Rotten Crunch. Oh, moving on. You hated that doll. So Murph, you've heard the term getting shitfaced, right? Yeah, but luckily I've never experienced that. Let's hope you don't experience this either. So a former woman is facing a felony charge for what she did to an elderly neighbor. Now, Callie Robinson, she's 28. She was arrested after a confrontation at the Mobile Home Park where she and the 76 -year -old victim live in separate residences. According to a complaint charging Robinson with battery on a victim 65 years or older, she became upset with Daniel Powell. You know what his crime was, Murph? He would always speak with her while she walked her dog. What, just to say good morning or how are you? Yeah, so guess what she did? She took an unsecured bag of dog feces and pushed it into his face. Oh, oh, that's nasty. So they matched the dog waste bag. Yeah, they matched the waste bag with bags in her possession and she ultimately admitted to the battery. How old was she and how old was the victim? She was 28, the victim was 76. That's why they charged her with a battery on a victim 65 years or older. Yeah, and the punishment should be the same thing she did to him. I'll tell you what, it gives a whole new meaning to the word shitfaced and she should get shitfaced. You're not kidding, there's no excuse for that. Well, speaking of Florida, Murph, what is the largest retirement home in the United States? The villages. The villages. You wouldn't believe the stories that come out of that book. Oh, dude, I would after this story. So a 77 -year -old Florida man was arrested. He was trying to peddle some things. Oh, yeah, that was on the news here. That's legit. He was trying to peddle $1 ,800 worth of black market erectile dysfunction drugs. Only in the villages. Now, he bought a slew of ED products, erectile dysfunction, including Snovitra 20, Villatra 20, and Kamagra oral jelly. Oh, my God. With the intent to sell them locally and outside the Sunshine State, according to several papers, now, Murph, this is going to shock you. It's not his first rodeo. Guess what else he's tried to hawk? Marijuana and cocaine. No meth? No meth. Oh, dude, you've got to step up. You're not going to do meth. I mean, that's just kiddie dope otherwise. Yeah, you've got to be in the big leagues. You want to run with the big dogs, you've got to get off the porch there, Cooter. Seriously, the stories that come out of that place are just... Connie said, if she passes away first when I moved to the villages, I don't think so. They have the highest rate of STD transfers infections in the United States. Hey, if you're that age and you're getting some, God bless you. Oh, my goodness. Yeah, but I mean, practice safe sex. Good Lord. Well, that's kind of a segue. I'm not sure how to segue into safe sex other than to saying the next guest is actually pretty safe. He's a really pretty good guy. And he was somebody that you have worked with in the past. And that's how you cornered this. By the way, you couldn't make fun of him. Guess what? He's a God -fearing, right -wing, rifle -carrying trooper. Are you talking about our guest today? Yes. You know what? This guy that you're getting ready to hear his story. I met this guy. He's one of the best interdiction troopers in the United States ever. I mean, he was well -known throughout. And he's going to tell you how he learned his trade and everything. But I got to meet him when I came back from Columbia and got stationed in Greensboro, North Carolina. And this guy, his nose is better than his drug dog's nose. We didn't talk about this on the interview, so I'll tell you real quick. He called me on a New Year's Eve. I was painting the laundry room in our house. The girls were little. He called me on New Year's Eve night, and he had pulled over a tractor trailer car carrier and found several hundred kilos of cocaine in one of the cars. I mean, how the hell do you do that, you know? Because he's a trooper. Yeah, he's good. And the driver was Colombian, so that might have been an indicator. But just a fantastic guy. I mean, one of my best friends all these years later, I met him in 94, and here we are in 23, and still stay in touch all the time. And if it hadn't been for him, your stats would have been for shit, man. Still a stat where he can. There you go. Wait a minute, that's another agency. Wait the fuck for agencies to do that. What other agency would do that? What other agency would go out and make a press release? Well, there's one, you know, that's called Adopt That Effer. You'll have to figure that out. They usually show up after the fire. But anyway, we digress some murph, but we can't hear the story of Mr. Tim unless I ask you the penultimate question. Are you ready to play the biggest, baddest, most dangerous game of all? The Carolina North accent game of crimes. That's right. Ladies and gentlemen, get in, sit down, shut up, and hold on, especially when it gets to the point where they took his gun away from him. This man is a big man. Bring on Mr. Trooper Tim Cardwell, retired, one of my best friends. If you would just like it if it was breathy, because we could talk to you that way. You freak me out when you do those voices, Morgan. Yes. We'll get you some professional help. The love doctor is in. Speaking of who's in, it's not the love doctor. It's me and Murph. Hey, and guess what? We have got somebody Murph can't make fun of. If he tries to, he's going to get in trouble, because he's another trooper. Yeah, so for all our listeners, you can feel my pain right now. Instead of one trooper on every interview, I got two troopers on here today. Who knows where this is going to go? If you hear snoring in the background, that'll be me, because we're going to be telling trooper stories. No, that'll be because you just took your medication. You were telling us of that, and you're about ready. You're going to go on the nod. I just got up from a good nap, so. You ought to be French. Our guest today is an old, old friend of mine that I met when I first came out of Columbia back in 94. I got stationed in Greensboro, North Carolina, and I don't know how we met. I don't remember now, but. I think you got a ticket, Murph. He could have given me one, I'm sure. Of course, I rode with him a few times. I could have given him one, you know? But our guest is Tim Cardwell. He's retired, North Carolina State Highway Patrolman. One of the leading interdiction troopers in the entire United States. was This guy so good at his job. He had a dog at one point. We'll talk about his dog a little bit. Who saved his life, I believe. We'll talk about that story. But who was so good, he didn't need a dog. I mean, he could sniff out coke better than anybody I've ever seen. So we've got some stories to tell him today, but what a pleasure to have you on here, Tim. Thank you, Steve. I appreciate it. Glad to be here. Kind of nervous, but I'm glad to be here. This is not an interview or interrogation. Nobody's going to advise you of your rights, but just in case, there's the door, Tim. You're free to go at any time, you know? Don't make me call your wife now. Ah, well. She keeps me straight, trust me. Don't they all? Yes. Well, let's talk as we do with everybody, Tim. First of all, one trooper to another. Thank you for your service out there to the great people of North Carolina. So think of ours, Coastal and Ulster. How did you get started in this thing we called law enforcement? As a Ute, did you fracture a few laws? Were you on the receiving end of some extra judicial punishment? Or how did you get started in this thing? Yeah, kind of. So I grew up in Madison, Medan, which is north central North Carolina, north of Greensboro, a small town, about 5 ,000, two towns combined, and just a little mill town. And I did have an encounter with law enforcement at a very young age, and it scared me, kind of like scared you straight. And I had just kind of gotten, you know, as a young boy, I was just very adventurous, rambunctious, and, in a way, got in trouble one night for throwing some rocks at somebody who had run us off from shooting basketball. And, you know, in a way, kind of retaliated in not the best way, and local law enforcement, of course, picked us up. No, no, you don't get to blow past that. What do you mean you retaliated in not the best way? We need some details. What was the nature of the retaliation? Well, so the rocks were the retaliation. So let me clarify. We were shooting basketball outside of a funeral home one night, and me and a buddy of mine, and anyway, long and short of it is, I didn't have a basketball court that had asphalt or concrete. I only had to shoot on dirt, and this local place had concrete, obviously. And so we were shooting late one night, and, you know, being young, maybe 12 years old, we really wasn't paying attention, and there was a funeral service going on. So, you know, of course, us playing caused a lot of echoing, and they come out and actually run us off, so to speak. And so kind of feeding off of each other, being frustrated, we decided to throw a couple rocks outside the building, and as such, we got the local law enforcement called, and they quickly found us and picked us up and took us to the station. And anyway, it absolutely petrified me. And anyway, they did us really good. They were very respectful and taught us a lesson, and, you know, didn't come out with any kind of criminal charges or anything. So it was my introduction to the criminal justice system in a personal way. So needless to say, I didn't want to experience it again. It scared me so much. I never heard that story. That's similar to one I went through when I was about 10 years old. Did any of those rocks happen to penetrate glass, or did they bounce off the building, or what was the nature of the damage caused by your retribution? There really was no damage. It just hit the side of the building. I wasn't that brave to throw it at a window, but, you know, it was just at a time where I was, I guess, getting out there and probably kept me from getting in trouble to a greater level, I guess. So it was good for me. So how did that factor into later then? You know, that was your first experience, but what led you into this thing of ours? Well, you know, as I look back, I can kind of recount the path. As a young man, we had growing up, the house that I grew up in didn't have a mailbox. We had a post office box. And so when I would go to the post office box to retrieve a mail with a parent or, you know, as I got a little bit older, allowed to go by myself, I caught myself reading those FBI most wanted bulletins that's displayed in all post offices, and they just seemed to capture my attention. And unbeknownst to me, you know, I never thought about a career in it, but I think that had a little factor. And then the house that I mentioned, my neighbor who had moved there in the third grade, he was a state trooper, and he spent his whole career in our home county, and he was very close with our family. He lived right behind me, and he watched me grow up, and, you know, I interacted with him quite a bit, and I was always impressed with him and respected him. And I used to see him, you know, when he would leave on a weekend working evening shift with that black and silver patrol car, it would be shiny, and, you know, he would go out. There you go. See, got to take care of that car. Even back then, it's got to take care of the car and the uniform. I think all you guys just want to be mechanics.

A highlight from The CoverBag with Murp McCarthy
"Marine veteran Murph McCarthy is the creator of the cover bag the best protection for your dress hat or dress uniform cover Coming up next on veteran on the move Welcome to veteran on the move if you're a veteran in transition an entrepreneur wannabe or someone still stuck in that J -o -b trying to escape this podcast is dedicated to your success And now your host Joe Crain As a member owned not -for -profit Navy Federal puts members at the heart of every single thing they do Find out more at Navy federal org All right today we're talking with Marine Corps veteran Murph McCarthy owner of the cover bag calm and The women's rugby coach at the Naval Academy, that's pretty cool So Murph welcome to the show before we get to talking about business and entrepreneurship As a marine fellow aviator having had one of those on this show for a long time. Tell us what you did in the Marine Corps yes, so I Actually, I enlisted right out of high school and things went really well I was a tower air traffic controller and I ended up at the prep school for the Naval Academy and then graduated from the Naval Academy in 2000 then TBS and then went to down to Pensacola and When so helos went out to the FRS out there in Camp Pendleton quickly fell in love with it learned how to fly frogs Then I went to East Coast and I did two deployments on the East Coast And when I came back from that second one, there was a bunch of ospreys on the tarmac you know, I wasn't sure I wanted to get into that so I solicited my services back out to Camp Pendleton and then I ended up with the Purple Did foxes a couple deployments with them and then along the road. I got I got the the drone stink on me Stick with VMU doing drones and when it came time for me to get out of the cockpit I actually my services were sought by people other than myself To go do that again. So I went To VMU three and did a couple deployments With those guys then I came back to the Naval Academy where I was working in the Stockdale Center for ethical leadership and I was teaching leadership and that's when I started coaching rugby at the Academy in 2011 and then I had one last gig down at DITRA defense threat reduction agency where I was doing I was working on the open skies treaty which is a fascinating gig if you can get it, and I don't think you can get it anymore, but and then I retired in 2017 and You know, that was my Marine Corps story from the end of high school 92 to 2017 interesting so You know, sometimes transition is different. You're retiring because at least you got that paycheck of the month club membership, but Sometimes retirement isn't any easier than you know being in being in the military for four years and then getting out also So what was your transition like? Well, I wasn't sure what I wanted to do when I grew up You know, I was still like volunteering coaching rugby and that I Didn't see myself ever getting out of that because that was just a really fun thing for me to do It filled a lot of the you know, what you miss about the Marine Corps stuff for me But I started looking into a couple different business opportunities. I Started a business before I retired probably almost ten years before I retired and that was the cover bag and what ended up being the cover bag calm and that just grew and grew and grew to where You know, I could definitely take up a lot of time just working that when I retired But I'm I knew that was I wanted one more thing at least And that's when I started looking into other business opportunities and I got into fitness I a started franchise in Annapolis and did that I looked at a Number of other franchise opportunities, but I knew fitness was probably going to be what I wanted to do, right? So Was there an entrepreneurial bug inside of you the whole time? You're in the Marine Corps to just come about at a later time Totally. Yeah, like I've been into that kind of thing when I was since I was a kid So I remember getting in trouble for selling fireworks in the bathroom at my junior high school You know, I came up with ideas for stuff to put on ball caps Slinging t -shirts like that was always a thing but the cover bag was an idea I had when I went to the Naval Academy and You know, you're always wearing that combination cover like in the Marine Corps You're lucky especially if you're in aviation like you already ever even see that thing Yeah, buddy with the chicken you're trucking that thing all around all the time and it's white And you know, all you got to do is sit on it once or you know Be holding an ink pen that you probably should have retired a week before next to it And you gotta take the whole thing apart or buy new parts or buy a new one And I'm like man if I just had a bag for this thing, so it was like a couple years of me sketching out what it probably should look like and then designing it and then You know once you make the first couple and then you kind of go from there, but no I've always had that Hey, wouldn't this be a good idea Like I probably I probably do that like three times a week. Yeah, I've always been the same way but I think like especially when I was when you're a kid or when you're really young you have no idea how to Capitalize on your idea like yeah idea how to implement it or execute. I mean, you just don't have those capabilities and then especially nowadays with the internet and all the technology and everything and in Alibaba and China and all these resources that are available You can you could come up with a harebrained idea in just a few months be taking it to market Whereas like 20 30 years ago. It was like almost impossible to do to do. Yeah. No, and that's something you People should keep in mind. Like if you've got what you think is a crazy idea Just keep kind of fleshing it out and then you know for me it was a buddy of mine He's like, hey, I got a buddy who's got a hat and bag factory in Newark, New Jersey And why don't you send me that sketch you talked about? So I sent it to him and the guy produced a demo and And that was the first one like just like that dude. That's awesome.

So When I saw your interview come through Murph I gotta admit I'm like the cover bag and I went to your website and I saw it and I'm like ding I get it instant instant like yep thumbs up and Cuz my wife and I were Amazon sellers for many years. We're totally out of the business now. Amazon just got to be Amazon was like walking through a minefield you like you thinking you're fine all sudden kaboom your right leg's missing You're like what the fuck? anyways So we're out of Amazon now, but I loved Amazon cuz like we talked about earlier when you're when you're young You come all these hair brained ideas. That's a great idea for product That's a great idea and I could I could run them to ground and be and be putting it on Amma be putting a great product on Amazon, you know within a few months sometimes Sometimes that's not a good thing because if it turned out not to be a good idea you lose a lot of money At least I could exercise these ideas for the first time in my life. And so I have a true appreciation for a great product and I Remember, you know getting my uniforms at the Marine Corps shop or the marine the marine shop in there in Quantico And I think I still have that white shredded cardboard box with my white cover in it somewhere back in storage and and I The whole time I'm like, how am I supposed to carry this thing around? I mean for 20 plus years in the Marine Corps I carded that thing around in a cardboard box and somehow it managed to work out for him when I saw the cover bag I'm like, oh, yeah, like I get it that that's it. Like like how did how'd you just come up with that idea? It was just I mean I get it It's like it's like a problem every one of us dealt with but nobody ever thought of the idea or at least executed on the idea Yeah, well, I always thought we you know, they're expensive So all you gotta do is have to replace one and you're like man, how do I not do that again? Yeah, and that's where it started but when I had You know that run -in with my buddy's friend who said he could make me a demo I was like a demo sounds like it sounds like I'm in it But he he produced, you know The first cover bag from my sketch and I and all I had was like a little couple tweaks And he sent I ordered about 15 of them and I opened up the box of these 15 cover bags And I handed him out to the guys that were doing the color guard For the ball when we had the ball the next night and when the Marines were like, holy shit, sir This is awesome. Where'd you get these? I was like funny story like I invented that and they're like what and then I knew that I had something and that's Really? Yeah pulling my money together and like spending quality time thinking about how I was gonna do it Wow Yeah, I got like a thousand questions cuz and like I said, I'm a product guy Like I love cool products and the idea behind it. So interviewing somebody that created a product it became successful Because it was just the right idea and Let me tell you man. I don't know if you realize this bit. It is hard to find to Manufacture something in the US and it's great that this is a military product Which by the way, I want to point out like I know in the Navy Marine Corps. We call it a cover your uniform hat The other services. I'm sure the Air Force didn't call it a cover. They probably caught a hat I'm not I'm not sure about the army But you know, I want to point out a cut the cover is your official military head piece or your you know It's your military hat but in the Marine Corps Navy, we call it the cover So your product is called the cover bag But I suppose you you wouldn't have wanted to call it the hat bag because then it would have just been like anything No, and I you know how you always wondered like you watch a commercial Or hear like a radio ad you're like I'm confused but like three minutes later you're still talking about it I think some of that. Yes, I think some of that has happened with calling it the cover back You know because I thought that I was gonna be selling to guys like you and me Like I thought this was gonna be you know by the troops for the troops type thing Yeah, but I have a ton of customers that are moms and Grandmas wives like they don't know what a cover is So they're like I pick up the phone and somebody says cat bag 95 % of the time really and I just I just kind of roll with it because it's one of those You got all these old ladies buying it to you're talking about it. So let's keep that up It's like the the the Red Hat Ladies Club is buying your bag for their hats and stuff or fancy hat No, they're buying it for their husband's boyfriend's grandchildren The cover bag is a huge gift idea like I'll send I'll sell like six figures worth of these things through the Marine Corps exchanges in a year I sell a lot more than that to friends and families of people graduating Parris Island and MCRD San Diego. It's it's absolutely fascinating and Much in the same way as cover bags hat bags hat covers all that stuff My favorite is that you know, I don't pay anything for advertising like I tried it a couple times It was to me It was like wasting money because I couldn't figure out if it was doing anything at all But people will get on Facebook and argue about what should be Embroidered on the cover bag. No, it should be last name first name. No, it should just be the initials No It should be first name and then the middle name and then the last name and I'm like this is amazing because it'll go on And then the website goes ding ding ding Yeah, well I suppose you know first initial middle initial last name, you know, maybe rank before that might you know if you're selling them to all the eighth and I Marines if it becomes that if he becomes a Regular issue piece of gear. Well, then you gotta you gotta do by right? I think that's probably eventually gonna happen. Yeah Yeah, the Marines like solve a lot of your problems. They just make you do stuff The Marine Corps ever figures out. Hey, we don't want anybody walking around with a bad -looking cover again We're gonna put one of them cover bags in their c -bag issue. Yeah, that's it. That'll solve that. Yeah Yeah, well then they won't have to walk around with it in you in there with their bent arm and hand, you know So So what are some of your numbers that you can share with us or just to give us a perspective on? How successful the cover bags? Well, to be honest The company's not openly for sale, so I'm not really in tune exactly with the numbers But I've been trying to get in with the Navy exchange So the last gentleman that worked there He didn't really understand and like how the cover bag was an amazing piece of gear But they're starting to get the memo now and the main number I've been talking with them is like hey Do you know I I do over six figures worth of business with the MCX at the Navy exchanges of which there is many Many more. Can you imagine how good this would do if it was available? Yeah to the Navy first hand and then retail, you know I do I do a lot more business retail than I do goals for sale. So well, dude, that's awesome. This is good you're always gonna need to protect that cover and like I said the the parents and Girlfriends wives and grandparents are on Facebook talking about what needs to be on a cover bag and they're like, what's a cover bag? Cover and then there I am my website just gets the pinks. Yeah You know, it's like that the old the old Henry Ford story where he says Well, if I had asked the customer what they wanted, they would have said a faster horse, you know, or right There's a quote similar from Steve Jobs Like sometimes the customer doesn't really know what they're looking forward what they need until they see it You can have any color car you want as long as it's black the other Henry Ford one yeah, and The cover bags kind of like that because if you said what's one of the biggest, you know You know pain in the ass things you do you deal with with your uniform? Nobody would have said I wish I had something to carry my cover in but I mean hardly anybody would have said that but When they see when they see the cover bag, they're like, oh, yeah I want one of them because I that is a pain point for me I just never realized that there would be as ever solution for it yeah, no, it's it's a no -brainer and eat and like People that aren't, you know actively using the cover like the parents can figure out that a cover bags a great idea And the other thing is, you know, mom's don't want to be buying their kids, you know, whiskey flasks and knives Something Practical they're not gonna put alcohol in or possibly shank somebody with It works out pretty good to get him a cover back and embroidery everybody loves embroidery that Yeah Now it's got your name on it, oh, yeah The embroidery thing for the cover bag is when it really exploded Yeah, and there's a nice big surface area on the thing for plenty of embroidery you can Yeah It takes a while if you come up with a design and you want me to put it on there that takes a little more time a little more involved, but I got plenty of patch choices and You can put whatever name you want on there nicknames Like if people get too wrapped up in what name they want in there or what order I'll be like Does your does your son have a pretty cool nickname? They're like, oh, yeah, we call him Sparky.
Fresh update on "boyd" discussed on Bloomberg Law
"Mhm. It was heart heartbreaking. You know, telling these stories over and over again about the most traumatic thing that's ever happened to us. Um, sharing our grief and our loss in brutal detail over and over. How close to dead do I have to be before I can fully access health care. Amanda Zuroski and Lauren Miller are two of the 20 women suing the state of Texas over its near total ban on abortions, which they say forced them to continue their pregnancies despite serious risks to their health. The lawsuit is the biggest challenges to abortion bans in the country since Roe v Wade was overturned last year. The women are not seeking to repeal the state's abortion ban but rather to get more clarity on when exceptions are allowed under the law. At oral arguments before the Texas Supreme Court on Tuesday, their attorney, Molly Duane, said doctors don't know when they can provide emergency care. The abortion bans as they exist today subject physicians like my clients to the most extreme penalties imaginable. Life in prison and loss of their medical license. And while there is a technically medical exception to the bans, no one knows what it means and the state won't tell us. But a lawyer for the Texas Attorney General's Office, Beth Klusman, argued the law is clear about the exceptions. As long as your judgment is reasonable, you should be fine under this law. Joining me is Elizabeth Semper, a professor at the Texas Law School. Liz, tell us about the abortion law in Texas. In Texas we have a lot of abortion laws. We have a trigger ban. We have SB8 that allows for civil suits against people who help obtain abortions. And we have a pre -row criminal ban that is only partially in fact. And these laws ban abortion entirely, with the rare exception of emergency situations, situations that the statute refers to as life -threatening. Who are the plaintiffs in this lawsuit and what are they suing about specifically? The plaintiffs here are women who have experienced pregnancy loss or other emergent and life and health -threatening conditions in their pregnancy. Some of the plaintiffs are currently pregnant and have faced a high risk of potential complications. And some of the plaintiffs are politicians who are confronting patients every day who they have to bring to the brink of death before they can intervene under the Texas law. The plaintiffs prevailed in the trial court at this very preliminary stage. So what they got from the trial court was an interpretation of the Texas statute that allows doctors to in good faith determine that there is an urgent need to act in order to avoid death or serious bodily harm to a woman. So they're not specifically attacking the abortion bans as unconstitutional? They're looking for guidance? The plaintiffs are looking for guidance as to what the statute means. the Use scope of what they're asking for is narrow. They aren't seeking to have the ban struck down as unconstitutional, but rather they get clarification on how they work in emergency operations. The penalties for doctors who violate the abortion bans are so severe from loss of their medical license to possibly life in prison. Have any doctors actually been sentenced or tried under these laws yet? No, no one has been charged with violating the Texas abortion ban in large measure because we just aren't seeing abortions performed even in emergency situations. I have heard in other states as well that doctors are hesitant to perform an abortion even when there might be an emergency situation because of the penalties involved. Yes, the doctors are concerned by the bans because they risk losing their medical license, risk of life in prison, really draconian penalties. On top of that, they're not exactly sure how a prosecutor goes about proving that they violated the abortion ban in these emergency situations. If a prosecutor can make out a case against them by simply bringing forward an expert who disagrees with how much the person's health or life was at risk, then they think there's just too much uncertainty that any given emergency abortion or life -saving abortion that they in good faith believe they need to do to patient's save the life could result in charges. And so tell us what the argument of the plaintiffs is. The plaintiffs argue that the abortion bans lack clarity. There is language inconsistent across a number of the laws, and they say that they need guidance on how the law is meant to apply in emergency situations and what they proffer as the best interpretation of the law is that doctors can intervene when they in good faith see a patient in a situation where her life and serious health risks are at stake and that they need not wait until death is imminent in order to act on that good faith determination. Did some of the plaintiffs actually come up against a situation where their life was at and a doctor didn't act? Yes, many of the patients suffered really severe repercussions including the named plaintiff Amanda Zyrowski who became septic and spent days in the ICU as a result of being denied a medically necessary abortion for a pre -viable pregnancy and as a result of that ICU stay she actually lost one of her fallopian tubes and so has much lower future fertility. So now let's go through some of the state's arguments and one is that the state claims the women filing the suit don't have standing to file the suit. In other words they don't have a stake in the outcome. Explain that argument. So the argument around standing shifts as circumstances change. So the state of Texas says you a can't lawsuit bring unless you are pregnant and so the Center for Reproductive Rights has plaintiffs who are pregnant and part of this is the notion that well if you're not pregnant you can't possibly know you'll that be affected by the operation of this abortion ban. But even with pregnant patients they then say well you can't possibly know that this pregnancy is going to threaten your life to the degree to which you might become eligible for these medical exceptions. There are also plaintiffs who are doctors so they are on a regular basis patients confronting to whom they have to deny care because they cannot interact until their lives are in danger. So the standing argument just isn't strong. As part of this Texas repeats over and over again that it's not Texas's fault that people are required abortions in emergent situations but rather that it's the fault of doctors themselves, the individual doctors who are unwilling to act because of the statute. And Justice Jeff Boyd seemed a little incredulous about the state standing argument. Your position is that in order to seek the kind of clarity that these plaintiffs to seek. You have to have a woman who is pregnant who has some health condition that she believes places her life at risk or impairment to a major bodily function but her doctor says I don't think it does and she has to then sue the doctor and maybe the attorney general at that point and then she would have standing. I don't know if that would be the only circumstance but you would at least then know that the law is the problem and not the doctor refusing to perform an abortion and the assistant attorney general at one point made this very stark statement. She said a woman is bleeding or has amniotic fluid running down her legs then the problem is not with the law that is with the doctors. the So state wants women to sue the doctors. Yes, so this was an option that came up over and over again in the oral argument before the Texas Supreme Court is that when a person is in an extreme situation where they might be eligible under the exceptions to the Texas abortion ban what they should really do is sue physicians who are unwilling to act to treat them. As the plaintiff's lawyer pointed out this is a highly unrealistic view and impractical for patients in these scenarios to go out and shop for an attorney who can file an emergency motion in state court and on top of that some of these plaintiffs are not pregnant people or people who are concerned about future pregnancies rather they are physicians and so the physician standing would seem to be independent of the idea that plaintiffs should more properly be pointing the finger at doctors whose hands are tied by the law.
Can Anyone Learn to Card Count? Expert Steven Bridges Weighs In
"In essence, card counting is just basically keeping an eye on every card dealt and remembering the count. Steven acknowledges that this isn't easy, but it's also not as difficult as most people assume. It's really hard to judge if anyone can learn to card count because I think in a way it's a lot easier than people think, but it's also a lot more difficult than people think. So I did this video one time with Mike Boyd and his whole thing is learning skills in a rapid amount of time. He's a very intelligent guy. So we spent a few days where I taught him to count cards and he said something that I thought was really interesting and perfectly captured the difficulty of learning to count cards. He said that when he was getting into it, he thought that learning to count would be a really complicated system that once he understood would be relatively easy to implement. But in reality, it's actually a very simple system that's very difficult to implement. So each individual element of card counting in essence, isn't that difficult with the degree of practice, but it's when you have to start putting those elements together and multitasking whilst also trying to look like a person normal at the table, just playing blackjack that it becomes difficult. And the other element is that if you're a card counter, you have such a tiny margin for error. We only get a very small advantage over the house. So if we make any mistakes, it can totally wipe out that advantage. So card counting itself, can anybody learn it? Maybe, maybe not, but getting it to the point where you're actually playing well enough to gain an advantage, I think is very difficult. It's a simple system, but it's difficult to implement.

"Research. I'm sure. You know, coming from the guide world and a lot of people coming on guided honey. I always go, I'm going to shop for new rifle. 100% do your research pick a caliber that's suitable, but make sure when you show up that you can a handle the weapon and be your accurate with it. And my example would be, I've seen plenty of alcohol to a two 43, but guys leave their favorite deer rifle at home in favor of a new 300 Magnum super whatever. They show up and they can not handle the weapon, they have not practiced with the weapon. I've been much happy if they were to show up with the old reliable P 76 and been able to manage it. So my two cents is pick whichever you think is suitable, make sure it's at least bare minimum legal, be effective and accurate with whatever you bring. Right. And when you do that, you can put in Wyoming has tags. So you could come out our way and try to hunt a bison out here. Those will be you can put in for those here pretty quick. And then once you do harvest that bison and talk about another one of our sponsors is high mountain, they make a lot of great seasonings that you can put on that bison or if you're going L cunning or if you're going deer hunting and putting whatever it is to help make that meat really good. They have everything from jerky kits. Sausage kids. They have seasoning for steaks. And then, you know, maybe if you're just wanting to have burger or hey, maybe Rebecca, you would have a bison burger. They have some great burger seasoning that everybody can get. You can buy it from their website. They have great stuff for fish. So you can go to high mountain jerkies, websites, HAI, MTN, jerky dot com, and pick up a kit and try it out. It's wonderful stuff. So hopefully, you can put in, get a bison tag and come out here and get a bison and then get a whole bunch of high mountain seasonings, take it home and enjoy it. Oh, that sounds great. That would be awesome. So as far as wild game goes, or fish or whatever it is that you like to eat, what's your favorite kind of natural protein that you like to have and what's one way that you prepare it? I like crappy and generally I pan fry it. I have, I usually mix a batter instead of like the breaded breadcrumbs, I like the beer battered megs. And I eat a lot of medicine. So in Pennsylvania, a lot of white salt beer, so I cook with that a lot. Also. But I love both. Yeah, that sounds good. So shifting gears a little bit. What's next on the horizon for you? What are some things that even just closing thoughts for us on the podcast? What are some things that you want to leave people with? Mainly I would say for beginners that are new and to the done world who want to start is not to be scared, everyone starts somewhere, you know, you find courses like you said with the NRA or a lot of gun shops or courses, you could get started and help yourself feel more comfortable. Do some reading online, but don't be fearful to start and once you do, I think people who are hesitant or are kind of self doubting themselves when it comes to handling a firearm or find that with the proper education and handling it safely that they really, really enjoy it. It's a really fun thing to get into. Yeah, that's great. And then David, you might want to talk a little bit about both spider. You've been on the road for quite a while. Where are you guys at right now? The NRA is great American outdoor show and Harrisburg DA we've been here for 8 days living in this booth. I don't know if everybody can see the YouTube video or not, but we exist. We're here. It's a great show. I actually got to meet the CEO president of the NRA. He was here shaking hands, get some babies, it was good to medium, good to talk. I mean, yeah, so next for us, we're headed to Portland, Oregon, to another show. We're here, demo and showing off the product. We have the new crossbow model coming and that's exciting and then here pretty soon we have something really, really exciting coming. Give me 6 months, but I'm always working on something, Patrick, you know that. Yeah, I do. That's great. And if you're interested in both spider, you go to both spider but dot com and pick up your bow spider. They'll get one shipped out to you right away. So Rebecca, I just want to say a big thank you for coming on to the podcast with us. It's been fun to talk about firearms and talk about women in firearms specifically.

"If they want to do it, age weapon caliber restrictions aren't going to stop them. The only thing that makes a 115 pound petite Bond little girl equal with a 350 pound man is a fiscal and they're now on equal ground and she gets to she gets to defend herself. Otherwise, it's back to mob tribalism and the strong devour that we experience. Right, right. It's like the saying teach your daughters to shoot because of restraining orders just a piece of paper. So yeah. To translate this over to hunting. What's a firearm for in the hunting world? It's a tool. Just like it's a tool to defend yourself. So you can kind of translate those things over. In hunting, it's so important to have a good rifle. And to be able to make a lethal ethical kill on a deer and Elk, whatever it is that you're hunting. And that's part of our heritage. That's part of the fabric of the people in this country. I was talking about it at dinner the other night with our tribal game and fish game warden. He's the same way. He's like, man, if we didn't have hunting, if we didn't have fishing, if we didn't have trapping, like my heritage is gone, right? Because it's such an important piece to so many people and I know for David and myself and for you that it is a big thing. And we are a small, small portion of the United States as far as people who do that for their recreation. You know, if you look at nationwide, we're a very small percentage. And that's why it's so important to tell our story and to tell it well and to be able to articulate exactly why it's important to be able to have firearms for not just self defense, but for hunting for recreation. There's a whole lot of applications for that. So I don't know what are some other thoughts that you have maybe on firearms and why it's so important. Well, I think like you said it extends into a lot of aspects of life, so not only is it important to, you know, the freedom that we do feel value and that value ball in the United States, but also when it comes to recreational sports for a lot of people, you know, if they are in enjoying hobbies like that, like long range or free gun or just target practice with their kids or, you know, for age, they don't, they don't really understand how popular it is among citizens who enjoy those activities. So I think it is a big part of our culture. And I think that it's important for us to educate people who don't understand that on the importance of it, you know, why we enjoy those activities, why it's important to us and also why the Second Amendment is important to us also when it comes to the constitution and our freedoms in the United States. So I think it's a little bit of everything. Yeah, I don't think a lot of people realize if you were born in a big city and you've never been around firearms and they only experience you've had with it is seeing the news where somebody got shot, I mean, of course you're going to be like, man, I don't know what to think about that. But if you're in rural America, you have a totally different viewpoint. So I can understand why there's a disparity between the two, right, David. The big disparity is, well, the Second Amendment is outdated. It was written so long ago. That was when we had flintlock baskets. And now we have these fire repeating arms, right? Well, very, very blatantly, the gatling gun was invented and all don't quote me like two or three years before the constitution was written as a patent for the first Catholic fire multi barrel winter. Founding fathers knew what was coming. They knew technology would advance this isn't an outdated old law that needs revamp, right? This is the cornerstone of the civilized society that we live in. And I guarantee you we can not pull out the foundation of our country and have it continue to stand. I think that makes a lot of sense. And if you talk about the way that technology has changed, I don't see David flying around it in F-22 raptor either. So it's not like our handguns in our AR-15s are going to do a select video against the F-22, but just to put that out there. Things have changed, but what we're talking about is self defense and hunting in those kind of things that we as citizens really need to have the ability to do. We need to have the ability to protect our homes, protect our families. Those things are important. And we shouldn't take them lightly because they can go away. And we've seen societies where it has and seeing the effects of what has happened in societies who've lost that right. And I point out people a lot of times what's going on in Ukraine right now. Because Ukrainians, they weren't allowed to have a firearm, and then they were invaded by Russia, and we all saw the devastation that that created. And the United States started sending firearms over to the Ukrainians so that they would have something to defend themselves with and now you're sending them an AR-15 style rifle and they have no basic training they've had no time to take courses and learn proper safety and how to use it. So a lot of times it's best to have it and be prepared and hope for the best and still have it worst case scenario. If you ever need it, you know how to use it. So yeah, it kind of goes back to what David was saying earlier. There are countries that train their people on how to use them. They have to do a little bit of military. And then you have the complete opposite of that where citizens don't know how to use them at all. And that would be a situation I wouldn't want to be in personally. I do want to ask you this. What do you see as maybe the biggest threat to the outdoor industry, what I like to call the outdoor way of life with hunting,

"That properly. Yeah, I always talk to my kids about having positive control of your firearm. Having good control of it and then also making sure it's pointed in a safe direction. Those are kind of the big things in like you said, if you're not intending to shoot something, don't point the muzzle of the gun out of you. It's just like that with a nerf gun or anything else. The other thing that I've noticed in the industry is that you have kind of a, it's kind of harder for women, unfortunately. If a young lady wants to come in and do shooting, there's almost like a stigma or like, oh, I don't know if you should shoot that 12 gauge here. I don't know if you should shoot that two 70 or 30 zero 6. It's almost like people are like, well, I don't know if that girl can handle it. Can you talk about some of those stigmas and barriers and things that you've seen coming into the industry and then had to overcome? Yeah, definitely. We happy to. There is definitely a stigma. I feel and it depends on, you know, it's like with anything. You can walk into one particular gun store and not have any issues and you can walk into another gun store as a female and kind of feel, you know, like they're not too sure about the firearm that you're interested in if you should even be interested in that firearm. A lot of times, you know, you kind of get labeled as, oh, it's a female, you know, here's the 22. Even if you have the experience with higher caliber firearms, so generally I tell women just, you know, never be afraid to start the process number one because everyone has to start somewhere. So if you're a beginner, and you don't know much about firearms, don't hesitate to, you know, educate yourself, take a beginner course because something like they'll begin first, everyone in the class is going to be a beginner. And that's what the instructors are going to be expecting. And when it comes to shopping around for a firearm, whether you're a first time buyer or not, you can read online. I did a lot of reading before I purchased my first firearm just because I wanted to get some kind of an idea of what would be the right fit for me for the use that I wanted it for, what caliber would be best for my weight and my size, what would I feel most comfortable with starting out? So that gave me a little bit of knowledge going forward into the buying process for my first firearm. So that helped out a little bit. But never be a fast question. Yeah, so tell me about your first experience buying a firearm. What was that like? So my first firearm I got at a gun show actually and I was the first time buyer. I knew back on the something that was, you know, a good caliber to start out with. So I figured on a 22, I wanted something to start just for practice and to get comfortable with. So I got a mod for 22. It was a semi-automatic rifle. And I started practice with that. I got really good. I got comfortable with it. It saved me and then I started at something like 25 yards and then I kept moving the target further and further and got more comfortable with it that way. So it really just takes time and practice and once I felt comfortable with that, I felt like I was ready to move on to something else and also concealed carry I was interested in that as well. That's cool. They always hear people start. I remember my start was with a little BB gun. It's kind of like Ralphie and Christmas story. The little BB gun and going out and shooting pop cans and then little paper targets and those kind of things and then just kind of worked my way up. But I think everybody who's used the firearm kind of has a story like that. You know where they started with either an air rifle or a 22 or maybe even a 20 gauge or a four ten something like that and got their start. But it's kind of interesting when you start with one, then you're like, well, I wonder what the other ones are like. And so then you start kind of that progression. What was that like for you? That was rifle that I had. So I wanted to purchase other types of firearms. So I wanted a handgun. And again, with that, I did a lot of reading because I wanted it for concealed cherries. So I did a lot of reading about what would be a good caliber to start for concealed carry. I went with A380, it was the actual handguns probably about the size of my hand and I have small hands and it was easy to conceal. Except kind of some getting used to just because it's such a small handgun that the recoil, even though it was A380, I mean it felt kind of like it was going to flip out our hands if you didn't keep a good grip on it, but it was nothing too crazy and I got used to it and very comfortable with that as well. So then from there I moved up to a 9 millimeter and I just kind of would alternate depending on the day, you know what clothing I was wearing or how I was going to carry I would alternate between the two. I eventually got some revolvers too. I love revolver, even though I don't really carry those. I don't, but I just enjoy having them. So then I got an AR-15 and an AK-47 and a three O 8. So I kind of ventured up into the other caliber. Like you said, you know once you start shooting one or kind of like I wonder what that next one is like. So yeah. And so what's the largest caliber you fired so far? I fired. I don't own it, but I fired a 50 caliber, and that was a lot of fun. So, yeah, that was definitely a blog to shoot. It was quite the experience. Yeah, I was going to say, you've already outdone me. I've never shot a 50 Cal. So that's pretty cool. Yeah, it was a lot of fun. I would recommend it if you ever get the chance just for the experience, you know, the recoil wasn't bad. But it was definitely a lot of fun to shoot. Yeah, I was at an air force base this last year doing a tour and they had this, they had different equipment pulled out and one of the trailers that they had had a whole bunch of different types of rifles. Well then they had the 50 caliber pulled out and then you could lay on the ground and look through the scope like you would if you were going to actually use it. And it was really cool. I was like, man, I wish we could shoot this and the guy's like, yeah, we'd like to let you shoot it, but we can't. I was like, darn it. I don't really want to do that. One of these days, I'll have to shoot the 50 Cal. Yes, definitely. I think you'd love it for sure. Yeah, I can reach way out there. So that's pretty cool. But real quick, I'm going to talk about another one of our sponsors, which is PK lures. We're really grateful for their sponsorship of the podcast. It is ice fishing season. Most places still in the country. If you haven't tried PK lures in their jigging spoons, get out there and try those. Our last episode was with Tim Jenny. Freshwater fishing Hall of Famer and had the world record walleye there for a little while. So you'll have to go back and listen to that if you're chasing after walleye, there's some great tips on there for catching trout and other things as well. But go to pKa lure dot com. You can pick up your own PK spoons, pKa flutter fish, any of their other baits. And if you use PK pro at checkout, you get 15% off. I did want to ask you about this too. There's a trend in hunting and in shooting where there are more women involved, especially since COVID. So can you talk a little bit about why
"boyd" Discussed on RADCast Outdoors
"Well, hello and welcome to another episode of rag cast outdoors. I'm your host today, Patrick Edwards. And I just got to say, it's good to be back on the podcast. We've got an exciting show for you. I've got a special guest all the way from Pennsylvania via Zoom. I have Rebecca Boyd here on with me. And she is a lover of the outdoors, a gun enthusiast, loves her horses, loves to go riding, and so I'm very excited to have her talk a little bit about women in shooting sports. Women shooting guns. The right to bear arms, some of those really cool things that we have in this country. And so Rebecca, welcome to the show. Thank you. I'm so glad to be here, and with all your listeners. Yeah, it's really exciting to have you. I had actually heard you on another podcast and I was like, well, I'm gonna have to have her on mine. So she can have the rag cast experience. And so can you do just like a quick introduction, a little bit about yourself and then we'll dive into the questions? Yeah, definitely. So I grew up born and raised in northeast Pennsylvania. I grew up my dad owned a lot of property and a Christmas tree farm. So I grew up in the outdoors all the time. I think and to shooting or firearms works until I was in my 20s, but I had to love for the outdoors. So when I started shooting, it was part of that love for just being outside that drew me to that. So in your 20s, what got you into shooting and shooting sports? Yeah, so a lot of people are surprised it wasn't hunting because they grew up with a dad who hunted a lot all throughout my childhood. Not that I didn't have the interest as I got older because I did, but first got me inspired was more so wanting something for myself for home protection and also I'm a big supporter of the Second Amendment so that played a part too. I knew I wanted to get a firearm. So I started doing a lot of research. What would be best to start with? To learn with and just kind of grow and go from there. So once I got my first firearm, you know, I really found that I enjoyed shooting and again, it was something that got me in the outdoors. So it was like two positive things and it just kind of went from there. Yeah, you had talked about it before that basically you wanted to live outside. I mean, as a kid, you wanted to do anything you could to be outside all the time. So as a little kid, what was Rebecca doing? I mean, were you running around playing in the trees playing in the dirt? I mean, what did that look like for you? Yeah, pretty much. My mom always said that, you know, if I could sleep outside that I would. She always had a hard time drawing me back in the house. I would be, if I had offered school out of the outside from sunrise to sundown, I love, you know, outside just going hiking and walking through the Woods and, you know, being out with my dogs and just enjoying nature. So my dad had a lot of pawns and go fishing and just have a blast outside. So yeah, there was nothing really indoor that seems like more fun for me as a child, you know, as being outside. Well, I think all the listeners will agree with you on that. The best thing is to be outside doing something whether that's fishing, hunting, hiking, camping, whatever it is. I can remember when I was a little kid. Same thing. I wanted to be outside. I would come up to my grandparents farm, and I would play outside. I played in the tree row in the past year. Wherever, you know, I'd be running around getting into trouble having a good time. So that's definitely a good thing. And it's good for kids to be able to do that and we need to really try to allow our kids to do that. I know my kids are fortunate enough to live on a farm. So they get to go out and play all the time. And I think that's such a healthy thing for kids. Yeah, it really is. I agree. The more we can encourage kids to go outside and do outdoor activities and just play outside kids are very creative. So it's like once they get out there, you know, you always find something to do. We would build sticks for, you know, just explore outside in the Woods and it was really fun, you know? And it's easy for kids to kind of get stuck inside and send in front of the TV. So, you know, once they get outside, you know, that push to just get them out, they really do enjoy it. So, yeah, it's definitely a healthy thing. Yeah, it's better for their brain and better for their bodies. I think shooting and shooting sports is kind of a cool way for kids to do that. So with four H and these other activities, kids can get involved in archery, be outside shooting, or they can start doing air rifles and 22s, those kind of things. So I do want to kind of move that direction. So for kids, I'm a dad, David's a dad. What advice would you give to moms and dads out there that are listening on how to get their kids started in shooting sports? What's the right age? What's the right level to kind of start that process? Right. So I get asked this question quite often, 6, 7 is over a rifle, like a 22, or even like a BB gun and gun safety, making sure that they know how to handle the firearm properly, you know. And always encourage them, even like with toy guns, you know, because it's like our kids grow up with play guns and it's like shoot and bang bang. So it's good to kind of instill in them, even from an early age before they're handling real firearms, you know, like guns are a weapon. So, you know, don't point at anything that you don't want to shoot, you know, same goes for like toy rifles that can still throw a projectile out. I think it's good to start kids at a young age, better to have them know proper gun safety than, you know, be at a friend's house and not know. So a lot of times I know moms are generally concerned, you know, that it's a dangerous tool, you know, but if you are teaching your child the proper safety that goes along with that will kids generally do very well and paying attention and learning how to handle

"And now this is think I'm Chris Boyd. Today we're talking about how we remember 9 11 20 years after that terrible day and how it defines who we have become, as Americans. My guest is professor of English at Butler University. Andrew Levy, who wrote a piece for the American scholar about this title. The power of restraint. If you'd like to join us, you can call 809 335372. Andy. This doesn't really come up in the peace. But there is a parallel to 9 11 in American history in the way that people really shared in the shock and horror of Pearl Harbor and the attack there even though They might not have had any direct connection to it. Is there anything we can learn about how we think about Pearl Harbor 80 years after it happened? Is there anything when we can learn from that and apply to the way we think about 9 11? I think that Pearl Harbor was definitely the better for the analog that came to mind. And I think that it created, uh, frame you know, a sudden War response. Um, a good fight a clear victory. I think that's what Pearl Harbor as an analogue. Helped us in vision. Um, I think that maybe we need to appreciate that Every politically volatile situation is different and not live too deeply in history. Or I think that we need a broader vision of history. Um, for people who really know that, you know, we're studying carefully. The cultural history of America in the 19th and early 20th century. Bombs have gone off on Wall Street before have killed lots of people have have disrupted the body politic and 100 years later are largely forgotten. There was, there is history and legacy of political violence of revolution, um throughout the nation's history. Um, and it's actually a much more complicated set of analog if we look at it all. Who decides why some victims of very violent crimes like terrorism, um are in a different category than the victims of other kinds of violent crimes. Like, you know, walking home and being shot in a robbery gone wrong. Yeah, I don't know who decides. It's just, um you know, they're you know the cultural and historical momentum that puts these stories into places often centuries old. We don't live in a place of monoculture anymore. The way news is brought to us is very is very divided as well. So one person's victim is another person's enemy. And vice versa. We have clearly, you know every every country chooses to live with certain sins and calls attention. Other sins or season more clearly, in the way other countries behave. Um, the reason we turn a blind eye to a lot of the you know, political or political seeming violence, you know? Domestically is is probably a couple of hours on your show. So who's suffering related to 9? 11? Do we overlook when we have these memorial commemorations? Um Like I said, I think this is the story eventually has to be told where 9 11 and the response to 9 11 share. Uh, stage I think that we have to look at. Um I think that the victims of 9 11 are victims. I don't think they should be is treated as anything but I don't think they should be treated as you know, people who were asking for it in any way, shape or form. Metaphorically speaking. I think if the U. S is a whole or of large sections of the field trauma from an attack that should be respect. Did and valued as well..

Business Reputation Hackers Secrets With Objection Co. Founder Curtis Boyd
"Talk to me about some of the reputation. Hackers secrets our people building managing and monitoring their reputation. There's kind of two angles at this reputation hacker stuff the first is for building reputations positively even though all synthetic and fake at the end of the day it's positive businesses essentially saying. Hey i'm having a hard time. Getting my customers write reviews normally s because of the lack of intention about providing an amazing experience honestly like businesses. Who are really shelling out. Amazing experiences have no problem generating tons of reviews so for those companies who just don't wanna muster the reputation. Fortitude really are being intentional about providing amazing customer experience. They'd rather spend a few hundred bucks online and go buy some reviews and compete in the marketplace unfortunately more and more people who sell fake reviews. They're starting the sell one-star reviews for competitors. So when you place in order for twenty or thirty positive five star reviews. They're gonna start saying. Hey how about one or two or three negative one star reviews for your competitors in your local market on. We add that to the menu and they found out that they could actually charge a lot more for it so they only charge ten to fifteen bucks for a fake google review since i left. Check yesterday on twenty different sites. They're charging fifty to one hundred dollars for a one star review for your competitors because that's the equivalent of five negative reviews right if when you give it one star. You're taken off a star from four other reviews and anything under five stars looks bad. It's actually eleven to one. So for every one star review get e need eleven. Good wants to mitigate that damage all right so the bad guys the guys that are selling the reviews the synthetic content creators. they're charging a premium to help. You denigrated your competition. That's one secret a dirty one. Also not very good for karma. What are some of the other reputation. Secrets reputation hacker secrets. Well there's a lot of clicking going on just as you said like in podcast yesterday like you can enhance your rating by getting downloads. Because that shows engagement that shows interest the same thing is happening and local listings where people will sell packages that include like synthetic clicks and synthetic traffic to try and drive more engagement on even listing sites like google to try to push people up and it's more benign than fake reviews itself. But it's still interesting to see people offering these tertiary services to try and manipulate these search engines in their algorithms to say. Hey these guys are more relevant and these guys are maybe a better fit for what you're searching

John Boyd is president of the National Black Farmers Association. He's a Virginia farmer who became an advocate decades ago after facing loan discrimination himself, just about every 8.5 to 9 years.

Where Does Biden Stand on Policing in Communities of Color?
"The epidemic of black men being killed by police. But he's also presented himself as an ally of the law enforcement community. NPR's Juana Summers takes a look at the line. The president is walking when Joe Biden offered his condolences to George Boyd's loved ones in a video played at Floyd's funeral last year. Supposed to question Why do so many black people in America wake up knowing they could lose their lives? Now is the time for racial justice. That's the answer. We must give to our Children when they ask why. Because when there is justice for George Floy, we will truly be on our way to racial justice in America. Aside from the policing overhaul bill that carries George Floyd's name that is stalled in Congress. Biden does not have a clear agenda to deliver on his promise of making real change and policing and communities of color. Congresswoman Brenda

MLB All-Star Game yanked from Atlanta over voting law
"This is all things considered. I'm Audie Cornish and I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles. Totally unnecessary. That is what a top lieutenant in the Minneapolis Police Department said today about the way that former police officer Derrick Show Vin Pressed his knee into the neck of George Floyd, he testified on the fifth day of Sheldon's murder trial. NPR's Adrian Florido has been covering the proceedings and joins us again from Minneapolis. Hey, Adrian. Hi, Elsa. All right. So today wrapped up the trial's first week, which, as you know, I've been talking about has been packed with so much emotional testimony, like from bystanders who watched Floyd died to first responders who couldn't revive him. But today the trial seemed to shift a little right. Tell us a little bit about that. Yeah. Today, the prosecution worked to build its case that Derrick show Vin used excessive force on George Floyd. And to do that they called Lieutenant Richard Zimmerman to the stand. He is the longest serving police officer in the Minneapolis PD. He's been on the force since 1985. He's the head of the homicide division. And importantly, after George Floyd's death, he was one of the department employees who publicly condemned what show Vin did. Prosecutor Matthew Frank spent time today asking him about the dangers of restraining a suspect by laying them face down. Have you ever in all the years you've been working for the Minneapolis Police department. On been trained. To kneel on the neck of someone who is handcuffed behind their back in a prone position. No, I haven't. Is that if that were done with that be considered force absolutely. What level of force might that be? That would be the top tier the deadly force. Why? Because of The fact that if you need is on a person's neck That can kill him. Not not mincing words. They're obviously right. Well, what exactly did Lieutenant Zimmerman's say about the way show Vin handle George Floyd. So here is the same prosecutor asking Zimmerman a question about what he saw in the body cam footage of George Boyd's arrest. What is your? You know, your View of that use of force during that time period. Totally unnecessary. What do you mean? Well, first of all. Pulling him down to the ground face down. And putting your knee on the neck. For that amount of time. Is just Uncalled for. I saw no reason why The officers felt they were in danger if that's what they felt. And he said, the danger is what show then I would've had to field to justify keeping his his knee on Floyd's neck for that, Monk. E mean it's not every day that you hear. A police officer, especially a senior police officer criticized Another officer, even a former one, right, right? Yeah. But on cross examination, eyes show, Vin's attorney, Eric Nelson, worked to poke holes in his testimony, his main focus being the latitude that police officers are allowed during under the police department's use of force policy when they're responding to incidents, So here's Nelson asking that the same witness a question. You would agree, however, that in the fight for your life generally speaking in a fight for your life, you is an officer are allowed to use whatever force is reasonable and necessary. Correct? Yes. And that could even involve improvisation, agreed. Yes. Minneapolis Police department policy allows a police officer to use whatever means there never are available to him to protect himself and others, right? Yes. The defense attorney there, obviously giving clues about the kind of arguments he's going to make when it's his turn to present his case that show been feared for his life that he was dealing with the dynamic situation. Struggling suspect an angry crowd. And real quick. When do we expect the defense to start calling their own witnesses? Well. The prosecution is expected to wrap up their case by the end of next week. And then it'll be the defense's turn. We expect starting the following week that is NPR's Adrian Florido in Minneapolis. Thank you, Adrian. Thank you, Elsa. Critics say that George is controversial New election law restricts voter access and disproportionately effects people of color and in protest Major League Baseball announced today It will relocate the summer's All Star game and draft out of Georgia and under pressure from voting rights advocates. Major companies like Delta and Coca Cola have issued critical statements. Now. Stetson University law professor Ciara Tourist Spellissy studies the influence of corporations and lawmaking earlier today, I spoke to her about what she found striking about this wave of corporate criticism. One of the things that's remarkable about the new statements from Delta and Coca Cola is that they have changed positions a few days ago. They put out pretty Tepid criticisms and or support for the Georgia legislation, and now that the legislation has become law, and they've been under pressure from voting rights advocates They have changed their tune on. That doesn't happen that often. Let's dig into that a little more, because obviously corporate America lobbies. Statehouses Congress for all kinds of things, right? Can you talk about how aggressive they can be in this area or how reluctant they have been in this area in the past? So corporations have two main ways that they influence policy. One is through corporate donations to particular candidates. They then spend even more money lobbying lawmakers to get the policies that they want. Now, most of the policies that a corporation wants are for its own benefit. No, this is a little bit different because voting rights advocates in Georgia put pressure on corporations not just because they were located in Georgia, but also because they had given money to Some of the politicians who created this regressive Election law in Georgia. Can you talk about a moment in recent history where we've seen corporate activism lead to significant legislative change? I think the biggest Example of this was the 2017 tax cut. And the tax cut was literally for corporations. So you had political donors putting enormous pressure on Members of Congress and the corporate tax rate was cut significantly. Another example is bathroom bills and so by bathroom bills. These are Laws at the state level that direct individuals to only use the bathroom of the gender of their birth. And one of these bathroom bills was passed in North Carolina. The end see double a pulled championship games from North North Carolina. And that got AH lot of attention and and North Carolina. Rolled back that bathroom, Phil. We've been hearing a lot, especially in the last year about corporate responsibility, so to speak. What you going to be looking for going forward to see whether this is Real or not, well, one of the things that we saw after the riots at the Capitol on January 6th. Woz corporations deciding to pull back corporate PAC money from the Republicans who objected to The electoral college votes for Joe Biden. But now there is pressure from the U. S Chamber of Commerce, which is one of the largest trade associations in America. It's also one of the largest Dark money, political spenders in America, and they're urging their members to get back in the political spending game. So one of the things that I will look at After Georgia and after the riots on January, 6th is Do any of these corporations actually changed their political spending behavior. Ciara Torres Spellissy is a professor of law at Stetson University in Gulf Port Florida. Thank you so much for your time. Thank you. There is a new attempt to bring the U. S and Iran back to the 2015 nuclear deal with one The Trump administration left in direct talks are set to begin in Vienna next Tuesday.

And you have to think too when you go onto. Somebody's on haunted locations. You know. The spirits rampant five hundred ten times but these spirits have never seen a run by. They don't know what it is. And so i spent time talking to them just getting to know them Explaining how things were showed him how things were.

I started getting vp's So then you know. It's just kind of escalated and the more that people have come in. We're getting more and more different evidence. More interactions and and different kind of response is happening. You know physical doors opening people getting touched audibly hearing voices we know a how is his yes is it just grows and changes every day. Sure yeah. I can definitely see that happening. You know. it sounds like it's almost like a bit of excitement for them as well to be able to finally like have some Chain overall variety to their day to day routine you know now they've got people coming in wanting to interact with them so they're a little more inclined to do things.

I i definitely be putting the boyd house on my list of places to investigate at some point in the future yet. Love to have you got you. You know not like any place you go on average every place you go is going gonna have any experiences at all like it kind of depends while the energy of the spirits that day and if they feel like interacting because of their choice that they wanna talk to you or not talk to you site. I think it's a lot in how you present yourself as well. Oh yes a totally understand. I had numerous experiences But the paranormal dislike a person who's alive whatever. Good days we have our bad days ninety. Sometimes we just wanna stay at home and shut the doors and pull down the blinds and not see your talk to anyone same thing. Same thing in the afterlife Encountered time and time again. I've been told go to hell by spirits more often than i'm willing to admit it comes with territory right. Yeah we get. We have one lady at the house. She's kinda she's grumpy. She always has a really raspy voice. I don't really know her name. But i get a lotta get outs from her or adult coming here Taking he's my favorite. Edp with her is. I was an. I was the only one in the house and i was just kind of cleaning and as i'm talking and just rambling on about. We've i went to a wedding. You guys ever gone to wedding. I've dislike la la la cut Constantly talking. And because of that. I kind of it out. Some of the kind of hurt her talking under my breath and then I quit talking than you heard her. Say i'm trying to sleep. Like she was really mad trying to take an ebonite. The just talking away. Yes i just. I like one of my favorite. Vp's at the house. Oh i wanted some sleep. Who does that. I mean yeah well. That's that's funny I'd love to catching vp like that. That's good stuff. Yeah it's it's incredible media. I just let ep. Edp alright especially for if you get one little word like yes now but when you get sentence you know it's just it's just amazing You know even gotten we've been at randolph county county infirmary and that the lien has burned down a couple of times and we actually got a. Edp a tree sniper walking around the basement by ourselves and we were the only two on the building. Then you a vp. That said the building's on fire don't don't you know so we just like a full sentence like that and it just kind of takes you back like oh my god. Now is he. Seeing the buildings on fire is he tied awards the billions on fire. Does he relive this every day. Now building so that was that was a really colon and then at that same place. We had one where we were walking on a different hallway and a woman said pleased to meet you. Girls come on in but we didn't hear it the time like. Oh my gosh kinda creepy. Because she was looking at because she said girls and it was so she's looking at us and she's inviting a santa. We didn't see her. You know like. I totally would in there and had a conversation. I feel bad about that but yeah it in the same token though you're like oh my gosh they were like look at dead person was looking at me. There really was somebody there also sometimes The getting when you get the vp's afterwards it's just amazed. Oh yeah i'm sure. I i've caught some stuff here and there. That's just blown my mind like wait a second. I didn't hear while it was actually happening. And sometimes i feel bad. Because i didn't catch the message I hate to leave people hanging. Whether you're dead. Yeah super cool. So i'm with in regards to the white house do you do you rent rooms out or host any kind of like overnight paranoid allegations yet. That's primarily what we do right now. Is that private off overnight. Her novel investigation. So it's just you and your team that's there.

"Engine fair here. On that united airlines flight from colorado dia to hawaii that reigned aircraft parts of down on areas of broomfield of or at least a mile. This past saturday has thrust the boeing seven seventy seven aircraft engine types and fan blades into the spotlight now. Thankfully the plane returned to denver safely. No injuries reported among the two hundred thirty one passengers and ten crew members or colorado Residents for that matter but The images from that incident and passenger reports have raised countless questions about one of the airline industries goto wide-body jets for europe hawaii and other long haul flights for analysis joined this morning by mike. Boyd mike boyd is president of evergreen based of boyd group international. Mike it's good. Catch up with the again good morning. What did you see transpire on saturday. It was an uncontained fan Failure that that's happened before where a fan blade breaks off or several of them break off and takes a lot of the engine with it. It's happened before but it's very rare and this engine is not widely used across the world. So i think it's one of those things. They're going to fix it. But it's not something that's going to hamstring industry. Now as you said it's not prevalent. See this transpire every day but it certainly did get our attention that pratt and whitney engine burst into planes and the united airlines pilot. I wanna talk a little bit about The training that pilots go through on a simulators because this man was our sully in the sky. Don't think i'm lapsing into purgatory. Hear his call to air control Was so calm and so collected you talk about grace under pressure. But we've had this happen this engine blow out with at least two other flights right. It happened occasionally across the world in engines. Have been different so it's not something attractive one particular engine but i will say this though what that pilot did was the same thing that ninety nine point five percent of all united pilots would have done and the point five percent of them vacation right now so that that's the level of training that we have at our airlines in america and a lot of that training for united pilots. If i'm not mistaken takes place right here. In denver right certainly does absolutely it does and again it's It's one of those things. If you can drive on i twenty five or you can fly a night at the second is going to be a little more a little safer kind of putting it all into perspective but it was incredible as we saw Airplane debris raining down last said for about a mile through broomfield parks and neighborhoods had to love the guy that was talking about the cowling that came down and destroyed struck and damaged. His house has got her. I believe he thought it was his neighbors trampoline. Because this kind of thing that you don't see every single day. So let's just say boeing has taken its hits in a recent times not only with this latest incident but also with the seven thirty seven match. Where what do they have to do again here. Had nothing really. To do with boeing percent with the pratt and whitney four thousand series engine that specific four thousand series engine and again the airport. Airplanes have been flying for twenty two years without any problem. So it didn't really a boeing. Issue is an issue of machinery And it doesn't mean boeing didn't fail here. What we had is a machine that did fail. And i will guarantee you by by now. They know what did fail. that's why they only grounded. I think it was what twenty two airplanes or more than more flying around that engine type but they know specifically what it was and they went specifically to the airplanes it would be affected so i think it underscores the fact that we need to separate fact from fiction with this. But what about someone. Who's thinking about taking long haul flight and wondering about the safety which i think you have address but just wanted to hear it from you once again wondering about the safety of this aircraft to say because you can get. I mean it's just playing. You can't get any safer than that again. Anything made by the handyman can break but keep in mind the airplanes that are getting millions of parts on this airplane in monitor. Everyone so i would say take a trip you know. Bring your mask in hawaii. Well said as only aviation experts. Mike void president of evergreen based boyd group. International can do my. Thanks so much for your time. Your insights your perspectives. This morning certainly do appreciate it. You a good day and you as well. Eight twelve down thirteen ten. Kfi k thirteen ten kfi k. A. dot com northern colorado's voice mornings with gail via the auto collision specialists studios. Now it's interesting. Because united is the only airline with a boeing seven. Seventy seven's powered by that engine. That actually failed on saturday. It's a pratt and whitney four thousand engine. Federal aviation administration said there are one hundred. And twenty eight older boeing seven seventy seven powered by these united by the way the only us carrier with planes with the affected engines. According to a piece i pulled out of usa today by done gilbertson. The airline had twenty four in operation and twenty eight in storage before a during the pandemic before voluntarily grounding down a late sunday this as a result of that really terrifying incident that transpired in the skies on saturday grounding step further than the app as directive to step up inspections on boeing seven. Seventy seven's with the pratt and whitney engine specifically the fan blades but Yeah that united flight. Three twenty eight from denver to the experience what is called an uncontained engine failure. What does that mean. well that means parts as well. Many residents of broomfield experienced on saturday as this engine failed and parts raining down for about a mile over broomfield that means parts exited the engine despite protective coverings and other safety measures now needless to say uncontained failures much more dramatic and tend to be more dangerous than other engine failures. Obviously because of the potential damage the aaron parts can inflict on the plane not to mention as they raid down on innocent bystanders as a result.

"18665054626. We're joined by Bryant Boyd, He's professional intelligence analyst and counterterrorism specialist, a former green Beret You served in the departments of Defense. Justice and Treasury into Brian. Thanks for being back on. Nice to talk with you again, Jim. Absolutely. And of course, we have President Biden in office and tackling all kinds of issues, including those of, uh, a National security and terrorism and potential military conflict nature. And although of course, much of what he has been talking about, has been principally of domestic issues. But then again, we're not directly face by a large number of striking international crises at the moment, although there are a few things out there. I guess you could call simmering on the back burner your thoughts about anything that he has said and done to date. Well, just by following what's going on the last just few days, including today where he told the secretary of defense of certain defenses, telling our military to stand down, Bert 60 days. Is absolute insanity. In my opinion, and most of us the military would see that way. There's a push to say We're kind of purge the troops of extremism, white supremacy. There is no proof for any documentation and studies that the American military is filled with white supremacists. It's a terrible thing to say. When I was in the military and you're in the military to my eight teams were made up of everything. I had agnostic, atheist black, white Christian Jew. In the special operations business. It's a hodgepodge of different personalities, different backgrounds, but we're all in green and we think green and we operate green and we operate as a team. Oh, this is issue of generating here now and creating a labeling of any male being a white supremacist. Very dangerous to us. The other thing is this issue with China. Jain is flying bombers over Taiwan. They've already demonstrated. They're violating the principles of the Hong Kong agreement after 99 years, saying they would less Hong Kong remain a free democratic state, and they're taking kids off this teenagers off the streets and put them in gulags in China. And we're not saying that the trouble is this. I don't want to run off on this thing. They know if Trump were in power, he would be rattling in their cages, be all over Twitter and saying a ton of stuff and making the Chinese sort of back off. The problem is this that they know Biden's personality having done with him for eight years? And they know he will be conciliatory. That's not picking on Democrat Republican they know that they can push him. And they couldn't push trumps. And now we're in a crisis, Mokhtar defense issues and we're running around, calling her by white supremacists and packing service. It's a dangerous time for cross our security of the country. In my opinion. Mm hmm. Yeah, I certainly see exactly what you're saying. And I would have to To take note of something that we're getting some of the specifics of what you've referred to there, but Ah lot. I think of what you just outlined. Shows the folly of having people in major decision making positions who collectively have not served one second in uniform. That's a problem. Yeah. Yes, and part of that is a lack of empty, but it's also flies in the face of historic experience. We've had now 46 presidents. We go income we do remember 48 years. And we haven't flow but the so much radical is this radicalization going on? Much of it is aimed at the hatred towards Trump, including this thing and going after an impeachment, which is obviously going to come out is not gonna be followed through the authority of predetermined thing. He's not gonna get impeached, but it's a show for the American people. It's all retribution. And I think from the outside, you were from another foreign country and you watch the folly. How the Capitol police looked very amateurish and the way they handled that Ryan Then you find out it was preplanned, and they want to go after the rhetoric of a president. They don't go after the rhetoric of Maxine Waters or or Bernie Sanders. Very troubling times. And I'm concerned about our security because our enemies are watching this folly and we must look really ridiculous to our enemies. Yeah, There's no question that we do on. There's a reason. Of course, that's because, uh, we we look like patsies right for the taking. And, uh, that's unfortunate. I mean, Joe Biden is the kind of guy Do you might do almost anything in terms of foreign policy, provided everybody else in the world went along with him. There was a multilateral approach with the idea of doing anything unilaterally is just not in his DNA's A if acting Without the approval or support of others is in the best interests of the country. I'm not sure that Joe Biden is up to that. Yeah, without trying to it, You know, pick political side That's easy to do, And I kind of agree with where we're going on this. We're not concerned about is from the standpoint of our enemies Number one are four enemies we have out there. We need to be concerned about number one and is the Chinese. The Chinese agenda is to become a superpower. And they want to be the number one. They're building a huge navy. They're building artificial islands all around China to create military bases. They intend fully take overhaul Call, which is a major international finance center. And we'll take over Taiwan. He's a bit free Democratic locations. And we're not. We can't do a thing about it because we're not going to. I think if Trump where was around, he would be pushing back and going after him economically. And I fear that mine is not going to do that. And the next step if we were to react. Is like they ran a destroyer down the through the South China Sea just recently, but that's Show of force, and we're really not going to go after militarily. The second thing is Russia and they're the experts on the hacking, and we just had the most massive spy scandal in history, where they had all the federal agencies. Intends the thousands of private institutions in universities Now we're gonna come back, and we're gonna talk about that and other aspects of this. So when we continue with Brian Boyd here, we will hear Joe Biden, in fact, talking about Russia when we come.
