"Know of even giving of myself volunteering my time or some of my money to help causes it that in ways that I never did before and I think back I think why did I. You know 'cause those needs are still there and but now it's like I wouldn't do it any other way so wow I always like to ask you a question about bullying and I want to know if you have a story you can share with Swear you know. Mindfulness would have made a difference my very first day as a building principal we get to the end of the day. The kids are dismissed at like three ten and by three thirty. My phone's ringing in my office. And it's a mother saying it's started again. My daughter's getting bullied. I thought it was gonna be different and and I'm like she just kind of yelling at me and unthinkable happens. You said well now. Her daughters legally blind. She could see enough to walk off the bus and get into. Walk down the hallway. But you know can't read can play right kickball on all those things. I mean limited but legally blind but at the school and and she said you know very first day in. This boy is calling her a blind. I'd freak she's she's just now. I will take care of this. And she said no she was a better in and of course she had the right to be upset. Well so the next morning I bring this boy and So I just start to explain to him what he did you know. I. I'm sorry here's the thing that I learned to do as I tell kids. You tell me why you're here Let them verbalize it. That's also powerful thing with with accepting consequences in that. Yeah and it's the bus and then he knew right away. He starts to tell me so. I started to paint a picture said. Do you realize what is her? Normal Day is like you know. Just you know with her sight impairment to get herself dress to to get breakfast. You know to. She can't play the same video games you can. She can't go out and run around like you. Can you know you realize how difficult her good days are in here? You are and saying what you did. He said I said who gave you that right to do that. And this boy just started to stop and I'm not raising my just sobbed in. I can see that. He really was remorseful. And he's just in. I'm so sorry you know and I could see. He was truly remorseful and again. This is my first into my first day in a sector being a second day now and and he promised me you know he would never happen again and I could tell that he meant. I thought you know what I'm GonNa Testimony. I'M GONNA see. I'm not going to give him any other consequences to talk to me I'm going to see what happens. So the next day comes no call from the MOM. Another day goes by and I think it was by the second week and what I would do I would just be aware of. This girl. Came in and stuff and I'd see she's okay and all two weeks later I talked to the mother and she says I can't believe it. This boy is just he sitting near her on the bus. If anyone gives her a hard time he defends her. He opens the door to help her come into school and she is so happy. And I'm just like wow I made. I SUPPOSE. Thinking about yeah. That's incredible and it was all in painting the picture of being mindful to this girl what it meant to be. You know I mean I wasn't using that term but you know putting yourself in her shoes. Do you realize what her like? And here you are making it worse and and you know and again. I need without yelling at him or screaming again. It didn't give any and shows what he then did on his own because he felt I think a Hilbert of mercy or a Good Book Say Grace In. I gave him gave him a chance to prove himself. And you know so. That's where my faith kinda comes into that too as I'm going to give a chance because I can always enforce something more difficult but you know in a never happened again in. That girl had a great year and that goes he was actually in another little. Things would happen defender. He became her defender and In the mom was astounded by that. And when I see the girl it just how things go on big smile she was happy and so yeah it was just came back to a kid who bullied understanding. What is to be mindful of who you're blowing and what the fact that has and how. You really don't want to be doing that. You know it's not. It wasn't his intent you know because they're trying to build them themselves and their China. Br whatever reason our knock someone else down to make themselves look good and when you can get that perspective and empathy. It changes behaviors and where this boy is certainly does. Yeah it really does change behaviors. And I think it's it's wonderful. How you handle that. Because who knows if there had been a punishment or whatever it could have embittered him and caused a completely different results. So that's amazing. I think when possible I mean you WanNa give kids a chance now there. Siamese temps like you said with this rubric. We developed because I didn't have the rubric started out. You know but we eventually got to that. I mean and you have to be consistent but there's an example. Where but also read the child. I could see that. He was truly remorseful in truly. Didn't understand what he was doing. And the impact. It was having negative on this girl and he wanted to set it right and you went out of his way to set right and so I was very pro and I made a point letting him know that when I see him now and then in the hallway and say hey you know you're you're you're doing a good job in on just keep it up and because the kids need to know that you recognize there are no that they're doing the right thing and in. That's very powerful. Yeah Yeah Fisher. Bruises we move on in the interview. I want to ask you five. Quick answer questions so just thirty. Second answers are perfect. The first one is this. Who is one person? Who's influenced mindfulness in your life? Well to be honest I I have to go to Jesus because when an reading the good book I am amazed by reading the New Testament especially the book of John just the way he interacts with people like Zacchaeus. He sees them. He's a tax collector. He's a cheat and he says hey. I want to come and have dinner with you and need. Just treat them with respect it doesn't condemn him. He does you know when they threw the prostitute as feet. He shows compassion for her in says. Oh who is here? As without sin throw the first stone and just the the the way he treated people who were outcast. You Know He. He went toward the people with proceed. Not running away from them. You know so I just can't think of a better example and Jesus yes. How is? Mindfulness affected your emotions. I am much better at controlling them. 'cause they're the old coach in me? You know you learned something that's harped and not necessarily l. but jump on things right away and and make the correction. I haven't coached for many years but I learned to be far more patient contemplative before I speak. I really do try to think before I speak. And and and then you make sure that it's it's what you really being existed. You'RE CONTRIBUTING TO THE SOLUTION. Not Making the problem or let's talk about breathing. Do you have any breathing practices or any thoughts on breathing? That could help our listeners. Not really you know not that I can think of. I mean but I do know that Just from being a a runner in the past to that so you know if you can control your breathing you can control your thoughts better and you can control your emotions. So it's it's definitely away and you can calm yourself too. Yeah for sure if you could recommend a book that could somehow help are mindful tribe listeners. With mindfulness what book would that be? Well there's a book from by Joseph Prince. He's a minister from from Singapore called destined terrain. Okay and he is. Booked just blew me away. You know. That's part of one of the things I read when I after I'd been diagnosed and he talked so much more about you know who we are as children that God and how so we need to be mindful of others. We need to be living for others. We need to be giving to others we need to that needs to be just part of our daily mindset and it just blew me away how you know he speaks a lot about the grace of God. How we're forgiven much so we need to forgive you know and I just thought this book spoke a lot on that and again it was destined to reign destined to reign by Joseph Prints. Yes okay we'll put that in our show notes. Mindfulness mode DOT COM and it. Could you share an APP of any kind? That could help someone become more mindful well to be honest. I I used Joseph Princess half lab on my phone and I'll look at it daily and he always has something encouraging whether you know help you overcome difficulties or just you know you should see yourself. Not Not he speaks a lot about not condemning yourself and beating yourself up you know that world can do a good enough job of that we we need to be A. I live with a purpose. I'm going to make this a good day. I I'm going to do something constructive..

"From my heart at. I would have never thought I could do But all goes back to that moment that I just knew I was going to be okay and I knew I knew God was with me and would see me through it and and the whole time you know. I've I've I've read more the Bible. I've sought guidance from other pastors. And just I. I've learned. I absorbed I. I've learned so much more than I did. No and I actually feel guilty that I knew so little that I consider myself a Christian but it was. I think Just to cursory and and now now it's part of who I am and what I do and how I live and when your body did the cancer start in it was actually I was staged for it was an all of my every lymph node in my body. I was quite sick. And in all my bone marrow. You must have been very sick. Yeah the doctor said my scans lit up like a Christmas tree said it was everything and so I was very ill and so as a matter of fact one of the blessings because I was so far along I got part of a research study because I qualified. I was so bad to have some new the latest drugs for lymphomas and and that kind of thing you want to qualify for what I did and and again that end up being a real blessing to because you know in time I did get to cancer free. I went about two and a half years. And then I had some lumps reappear on my my The forehead and my left cheek that the needed radiation Too but removed them both. And since you know I've I've had cleaned scans so That's really amazing. Isn't it that you had cancer even in your bone marrow and then later the scans indicated that there was no cancer it right often when you get any Maryland in especially in the limb system? You know it's it's not a good sign you know. The odds are are not looking good and I again. I can't explain it just I knew in my heart I was going to be okay and and I. I knew that it was just a matter of time. You know. Follow any particular practices. Like did you Change Your eating habits or did you get more rest or did you start to meditate or pray more or things like that. Well I tell you. I began to pray Mar. I definitely learned to listen to my body so it before I might get a little sickness or a little ache here there whatever and I would just kind of ignore it and I was fortunate. I didn't get sick very often but I I didn't I on a doctor person I didn't run to the doctor for things and and now I listened to my body as a matter of fact about six seven weeks ago I started have some sensitivity in my stomach inside and I wa- I'm GonNa go to doctor and I thought Oh he's GonNa be. Oh your little sensitive well. I was under early onset of shingles. Oh so I was lucky that I caught it early in it did get to a big rash was quite painful as finally subsiding now but in the past I would have thought all little sensitive skin. No BIG DEAL. I would await a so. You're so lucky you didn't wait. Oh is that right because then it Coulda blistered and gun really bad so i. I got the antibiotic early enough Antibacterial or yeah that's about it too So I didn't get as bad as I could have but that's because I learned to listen to my body where before I would have thought I'm not going to doctor. So yeah it changed me that way and and you know it just makes me look at other people differently who have health issues and just to have more concern and empathy for them and just to realize you know. Try to realize what they're going through. You know just to get through the day and so it's easy to get caught up with the world and your job and the things you like to do and it made me more mindful You.

"The proteins. That are impossible to produce natural occurrences or or just the DNA to right itself is not even reasonable. And I think just that and there's many more things but that is self the very foundations. Just don't work scientifically. Yeah it's pretty fascinating that's for sure. So what do you think about the subject of consciousness? What is consciousness? Well I believe that we are spirit beings in a physical world in. I believe we all have a spurt. Within within us from our Creator and autumn people are spiritual they might not believe in God but they believe in spirit and I believe that's what gives us consciousness. That's what gives us our individual personality. That's two gifts gives us the ability to think and think about our origins into to create. Thanks again we have consciousness that other animals do not have you know so so the human species were were not like other animals. You know so. That's another thing that Hollywood consciousness come about through natural occurrences. You know that that. That doesn't make sense either. You know that So so yeah. I believe our human spirit is is is what gives us consciousness and gives us our intellect and gives us ability to connect with our creator. Well it is a fascinating topic and I. I'm wondering when you were first diagnosed with cancer back in two thousand seventeen. How did your Christianity help you through that tough time? Well the very moment I found out the diagnosis I I just had such a strong feeling in my heart and I don't know like verbally or audibly but I just heard you're gonNA be okay. You've got this. You'RE GONNA be fine and I knew it was a it was Ki- came from. I'd say a latent faith inside of me you know. I always been a Christian. But I can't say I was living at outwardly. It would just a moment that I knew God got this. I'm GONNA be okay. It's just a matter of whatever I have to endure and then the doctor starts talking about chemotherapy and different things and and I'm just listening to. Okay what do we have to literally said when he finished speaking to me? I said What's the next step. And how soon can we get started? Because I just knew I was going to be okay. I just believe we all are created for a purpose and I just believe with all my heart but I was going to be okay and and and be able to do something more with my life and in that time I thought about writing a book and here we are now you know able to share historian and sheriff something.

"Had trouble in the past but first offense same consequence second same cons and so when when the kids who did struggle more in the past saw that consistency and saw they weren't treated any differently. Ecocide the human nature was in a did happen where sometimes the kids who had a history had a more firm consequential than year which really wasn't fair link. Bieber from prior years is just or from what a sibling dead and Duggan. It's human nature to do that. I'm going to jump on early this year and so that that child thinks will. What difference does it make? They're not gonNA give me a chance there and so they're going to act out they're gonna you know and so it's just having that consistency and dealing things were deposited away and and one last thing I want to. As I told her teachers that the kids will never heroes talking net negativity or complaining in front of them. We can have those conversations and you know in private but kids need heroes talking. Positively reinforcing good behaviors. They need we need the role model that our staff was just terrific with the kids. Just ate it up and it really made a difference. Oh yeah that's that's incredible. Sounds like your students are very fortunate to be at your school. It ended up. You know it's a lot of fun. Then you know yeah at school climate and it puts everybody on the same page and again kids have unique sense of fairness so they they know that the and again they'll accept consequences when they go okay because everyone else would have got this too and you take de personalize it. You know so again. I don't want to impose things because they can think will you don't like me or you know this is like no. Let's look at the rubric. Oh this is the second time you were teasing. Look at your consequence. Too Bad that's earned but then you most powerful to was. You could look at the next consequence. Look at if you do it again. The third time while you're GONNA have a detention or so and then you can kind of forewarn them. Then it's not like you're making a consequence off the top of your head and you can warn them and so again dial added to the idea the fairness of it that they saw that it was pretty black and white what you would earn and and so they tended to receive that well that is fascinating. I think that's great that you're implementing all of those things in your school now as a Christian. I'm wondering how that has impacted your role as a teacher and administrator in your school. Well it's definitely made me more mindful to try to be more Christ like I mean the most mindful person in history I believe is Christ. Jesus and he was didn't look down people then condemn people open arms. People is considered the people you know. Didn't judge people and our human nature is to do those things and so. I believe as I've grown in my faith in one say dealt with health crisis on admit. I grew in that far marcel. Look into my faith into to model that and tried to love it. I am far from perfect with it but it is a conscious thing I do know. And I think I thought I was always a good person. But it was on a forefront of my mind of you know representing Christ and how he loves and how he expects us to live. And so yeah. It's changed me and tied to that too is why I wrote the book because I was teaching science for many years and there were so many things with evolution that I would see that I knew scientifically I could disprove. But that scientific proof or what disapproves it is not part of the state-approved text and it would frustrate me and again we're supposed to teach state-approved texts that were not supposed to throw on our own opinions and it's not. GonNa in my opinion I can give you science on a why certain things aren't true or or share other scientists who don't believe is true but but that's not included. Just I so I. It was an. It's not balanced and I felt like for teaching our kids. Some things that are definitely not true and and we're not giving a full two sided or multisided perspective. It's just one perspective being jammed at them and they're innocent and they're going to believe everything a teacher tells them and and so my goal is to get some balance in and say wait a second. Here's what Charles Darwin thought. But here's things that go against that. If I had my dream that's all textbooks will be written rewritten into include those things and I give him an examples. If you like. But it's it's it on your dream. Charles Darwin would still be included as something that was todd..

"And with me today Hebrews. Are you in mindfulness? Today I am very mindful today. Good Bruce Matt's is an educator and he's been an educator for twenty eight years is experiences include being a teacher and administrator a bus driver and a coach and he's still teaching and he teaches some students grade eight grade four but he only now. This is interesting. He only has six people in his school. So he's the principal. He's the teacher and he's the administrator so that must be an interesting role to be fulfilling all of those duties now. An interesting thing about Bruce's he's also a stage four lymphoma survivor and starting in January of two thousand fourteen hundred eighteen sessions of chemo and eventually a month of radiation in the summer of twenty eighteen. But he's now cancer free. So congratulations brew thank you. That's one thing I've learned health. Is Everything Elvis everything? It sure is everything. So it's fascinating that you've written a book and you've put a lot of lot of yourself into this book and the book is called From Gu to God so let's get started with talking about mindfulness. I in what? Mindfulness means to you. And and how would you define mindfulness well as an educator? I think it comes natural where you're always dealing with kids or staff members. And you have to be considerate to their perspective. You have to show empathy for their situation. You have to be willing to listen to. You have to be a good listener. You can't be quick to judge because there's always two sides to a story so if it's dealing with a child with a discipline issue or maybe they have something at home so you have to be patient to be mindful of you know their situation and not jump to conclusions. Not Be quick to judge. You know that you have to you know have patients in here things out and and be considerate as possible with whatever you then say and so it's not to make the I always want to be whether it's a staff person or a a a student be part of the solution not make the problem worse and I guess one less thing for. Mindfulness for me is just to looking at myself. Being mindful of my strengths weaknesses to be open to other people's opinions. Maybe I think I'm right but you know to be open minded. Genetic discount other people because other people have strengths were which match my weaknesses and we have to be open and honest with ourselves where we can use others and learn from others grow from others and and be humble enough to to embrace that and learn and grow from our interactions with other people. So how long would you say? You've practiced a mindfulness type of lifestyle. You know I would say that's a great question where I really purposefully did. It was in two thousand five. I started to. That's when I became an elementary school principal and I strongly started to look at our building. Climate how we treated our kids. You know our discipline structure in in how we did things in the fairness of it so when I looked at Halwa was done And I'll be honest. I had some teachers come to me. Said you know you've got to relook at this. You got to look at what we're doing and so I took some research that I had gotten it from classes. I had taken on on bullyfree schools and I thought what you know at this time to implement some of those ideas. I'll be honest. Some of them were a little uncomfortable for me. I and but I tell you what I'll swear by them today because they really really worked because sometimes it disciplined one thing I learned is. You're so much more effective when you're not imposing discipline because students are anyone can rationalize or you're just you don't like me but for students especially to feel like they've earned a consequence to talk to them calmly but what they did and you know and so if they feel like they've earned something again. One thing I learned is raising. Your Voice serves. No purpose serves no purpose at all. You know to get underlying issues and so if you can have a conversation with people on a deeper level and really find what's going on you can get to the root causes and actually change behaviors for the good where they choose to do it. They're not change behavior because they're afraid of you because that's not a long-term solution no it really isn't and Yeah I think it's fascinating that you came to terms with some of those changes and as you implemented them. What kind of changes did you see in your students? Wolpe this? I'll go by what other people said. We had a speech. Therapist came to our school a couple of days a week and she says I love coming to. Your school is so notable positive. Your school is an and and just the kids understand the expectations. And that's one thing that we really concentrated on as we. We talked building expectations from walking in the hallway in the bathroom to two in the classroom on the playground. And not only did we. We put these in writing. We talked to both of them at the end of the year. But then we reviewed them regularly and if a student was not meeting expectations like maybe the running in the hall would say is a Yelich. What are you doing you you say? Excuse me. What the expectation in the hallway. And then they would go. Oh and it was a positive way to get the response. I on it And and so it was a positive to do something without raising a voice or yelling or or just have this didn't receive the correction so we we just learned to and we learn to recognize good behaviors. You know to to we had a little reward system where we would give out tickets that could kind of new than used at our school star so when kids saw that wilder noticing. When I'm being good and rewarding us in our good enough for everything from going above and beyond for doing what you're expected to do right but just the fact that we noticed when they did something good and and didn't just recognize them when they were doing something that was very very powerful and so the kids who tended to be in trouble more often they wanted during those tickets and they would just beam when they got one and so it's rewarding the positive addressing. The negative are bad behaviors in a positive way and being consistent being consistent with so huge. One thing we did too. We had a disciplined rubric. Where we basically listed all the possible from teasing the pushing shoving whatever but then we had first offense second fence third offense so it was all laid out so it took away the if I was in a bad mood Or of if or or may be the brother sister who was maybe not behaving while. I'm I'm GonNa you know. Put this kipness but no took all that out of the way. It made it very fair that no matter who you are you could be a scoop members child or someone who's.

"There's something special because <hes> i i heard magic as it came out. I heard working on writing kareem as it came out. I listened to wrecking ball. You know <hes> i was not a big bootleg guy so high hopes. Were all new songs to me. Except for the ones redid you know western right ours. All of this were <hes> just i wanted to hear them him. Yeah so based on do you is is magic still l. In your top list i think it would be just because it was my entry point and that's what's so great about bruce rogers. He's got all all these really great album. I think is an underrated album and bruce's catalog. I know other people have said that. That's not new but i have. I probably have a strange range top five. I don't even know if i've ever thought to give the top five of bruce albums but it's probably not the ones that that people would normally put in the top five. You know magic. I love cantaloupe now. At great album. It might good evening my top one. I'm not sure how it all shakes out but yeah no magic. It's still it's still up there for me and i think wrecking ball is great also but you know maybe it's because i've had the opportunity to to watch this. Come out in my lifetime that these records might mean a little bit more to you. Mean the name might someone else who was there when darkness i came out. I'm right there with receiving that. I <hes> wrecking ball first off. I loved when it came out and then that was the album that my wife listened to a lot because we're going to go to cleveland and see him perform so that still one of her favourite albums right cool yeah and go ahead and i would say that you know for me i would. I really enjoyed. I like the way mature bruce rights and thanks <hes> you know he takes these themes bat one finds in born to run and darkness on the edge of town and the themes they age along with him you know he he's not like an artist who might go up all the time hi and just play the same songs over and over and over again or try to do the same thing. Try to hit that same. You know magical note that made him building and famous after he does born to run after he does born in the u._s._a. You basically breaks up the band. I mean not exactly right away but each drifted down down immediately afterwards done that not gonna try to copy that he's someone that evolves with time and watching that happen in his music. Nick is really really interesting to me and that's what we're seeing. I think some of this back back half of the catalog madge he purchased fifty and sixty and now seventy well. I've got asked what's your thoughts on western stars. Oh i love western stars. I think it's a masterpiece of an album and i can. I can tell you why you know <hes> the one of the things i teach one of the classes i teach i teach a course on on freedom actually the sort of the history of the idea of freedom and what i yeah i try to get my students to to move away from speaking of freedom as doing what i wanna do when i want to do it right that most philosopher in the history of western thoughts tend to see intended to find freedom that that's that's in that way as license. Do what i wanna do when i want to do it and i see in in some of these early bruce albums like born born to run freedom is all about getting out if i can just get out then i'm going to be happy yes but even in those songs like you know born to run or thunder road. There is a recognition bruce for all of his youthful exuberance that it might not work out. The highway is jammed with broken hero yeah and <hes> the i. I just recently had a guy. His episodes are going to be out in a couple of weeks ago a couple of weeks but he said that he thought western stars reminded him of nebraska.

I we always hear stories about teachers are not paid enough and they have to spend their own money for <hes> supplies and etc so and I would assume special education even gets a <hes> further <hes> whatever you WANNA call it <hes> I don't want to call it neglect but doesn't get as much attention as even this the regular <hes> program exactly and this is just once a week and help out very cool awry and is this going to be <hes> mainly geared to the special education <hes> in that area the Canyon City the <hes> Los Angeles area well this this particular GonNa geared more for Canyon City right there. Okay we have fifteen. We have another show setup and we're actually going to be donating to the after school program up there for their <hes> community center. Oh cool so <hes> so this is going to be a ongoing thing. The shows are always going to have a a benefit charity as much as we can. <hes> we went onto a few sold shows and stuff like that to help us keep the business alive and keep it going but any to give back to communities in need. We're GONNA we're take a look at that and see if we can't make that a at least a top priority whether they're actually a sponsored charity or whether we just make a donation that night after the show we just don't need it to school. What school was let James <hes> donate to my to the dance class school or something what was I can't remember the name of it right so yeah yeah it was? It's one of the things where redemption championship wrestling if we can help out in any way we're we're going to do it. We're always out there trying to put ourselves out there and not even if it involves a wrestling show but volunteering and doing things like that Oh cool okay cool. We'll volunteering is a kind of one of my things in my heart to do a lot for the American Diabetes Association and things like that so yeah cool very cool. I'm I'm proud of that cool all right <hes> so <hes> you had mentioned <hes> James You mentioned that <hes> you guys had done other <hes> worked for of doing other promotions as well and I'm assuming that those promotions are pretty much gone by the wayside. A lot of them have been gone out of business. I mean I I started this business back. In one thousand nine hundred eighty nine restrained by <hes> an organization Outta Lamar Colorado called superstars professional wrestling and then I've done some work for choice to eighth professional wrestling's since I've been all over the United States doing this. I actively retired in two thousand until they they Kinda Doug me out of mothballs to come out and do a charity show there once what's the wrestling ailing bug bitney again. It's kind of hard to stop right yeah cool so let's see here. I was going to ask you guys so <hes>. Speaking of that <hes> what kind of <hes> do you guys have a lot of local talented. You get a lot of talent from <hes> other places in Colorado and what about the United States in the world what what kind of talent comes in and Russell's for our C._W.. So hello earth going we have we have talent from we have local talent Air Colorado but we also have guys from Texas a really good guys names Chad Thomas. He's GonNa Russell actually outlaw James Girl there. We also have guys coming from Oklahoma. We'll we'll take we want everybody to strive to the best their ability and if we're able to get a man what we'll give them in where we can get him in whether it's from Colorado Oklahoma Oga Texas this New Mexico. We're trying to focus on the guys here. Colorado 'cause plenty of great talent appear <hes> just the shows are starting to get bigger as we go but this car right here we do got Colorado Oklahoma and we got on Texas cool all right so what so what <hes> what names we got <hes> coming in for the for this show on the twenty seven well <hes> we have from Oklahoma. We actually have a tag team called the new and improved express New York's press my bad apologize. They're facing Mark Justice in Tyler. Watch Keke match for the A C W tag titles which were to see how that goes because I'm very interested in seeing how those two teams go as far as I know they're both father and son and father and son. Oh yeah so that should be interesting in itself. We have Dr Kobe Black. He's he's from Oklahoma. There's Jomon name Prince Molly.

I don't just pretty much why not just go for it. You know try it. Okay all right and for previous interview that I've done <hes> you know <hes> <hes> well. It's Kinda hard to pin the name on him because he's goes by a couple of different promotions but <hes> Monster Zero will filter story matic's. He kind of knows you guys come each other pretty well. I guess yeah we went to school together. Yeah yeah we were on the wrestling team and just. And he had mentioned that one of his <hes> <hes> people that he wanted to face <hes> in the near future when I interviewed him at the time was us. How did that match go? What was what was it like for for you? You know Kinda crazy to think that like like no one somebody for that long that we'd kind of like I've known him since high school so to think that we actually like stuck together. This long was Kinda. Crazy you know yeah and then and then you're crosses assist your past finding crossed yeah yeah we we had a good match. You know it was fun. The crowd was into it and so then what so what's it been like so far <hes> doing Nisa professional wrestling thing and also <hes> when was your what was your first match like <hes> you know it's been. It's been a lot of fun. You know it's living dream. I've gotta go places that I probably have gone. You know I mean they're not huge places you know but I've been different states and gotTa. Do I love out there. What was your what was your first match? Who is that like <hes>? It was pretty nerve wracking wrestled Joey kincaid okay <hes> yeah I was pretty nervous. It was actually what I have my first match like it wasn't planned for me to have it just the guy he was supposed to wrestle didn't show up so I had my gear and you just you know I got to have the opportunity to have my first. I match then right and they tell if I'm correct. They do tell you that even if you're may not on the car go ahead and have your gear with you because you never know right yeah. That's one of the first rules in wrestling training that they tell you always every year cool awesome all right and so the first time that I saw you <hes> was in a new era about probably a little more than two years ago and I think you at the time you were just pretty much a <hes> singles wrestler and I wanna this is kind of just a personal thing for me but your interest music was by one of my bands and that's who lose the news and the hip to be swear how'd you how'd you pick that <hes> well so when I I started <hes> have you ever seen American psycho with the Christian Bale I have not while my gimmick was was started off kind of like that in one of the songs that he listened soon movie is to be square so just Kinda you know it's an obvious choice for for entrance music okay all right and then I think maybe like <hes> shortly after you got introduced with <hes> Alexis vein and no you now currently part of <hes> Vanity Inc how's it. How do you like it being in a big tag team like that big faction? You know I like it. You know for the things I don't have Morales has it when for what he has doesn't have I have hit you know so like we we have that charisma together. You know all right. I was going to back up just a second. So where did you do your training. <hes> so I started with new era used to have school that I started off with and then a few years after that they had a move to extreme. Jim and I just been trained there since with a with Joachin Kate and Tony Morale is is so did I gather from a lot of people told him rouse does a lot of training de also do while you're training or he was. He's one of the main trainers for me yeah okay and so <hes> so. How does that feel like <hes> you know? You're in this huge tag team. You know I keep saying that with with your trainers is that is that just kind of fun yeah. It's a lot of fun in like I'm always learning you know like I'm <hes> probably learning more from you know than most people will get to just be on his team cool all right so <hes> do you so far. Have you had any kind of memorable moments. You know things things a stick in your head into wrestling career that while I can't believe that happened or I can't believe I got to do that <hes> i. I won the new era heavyweight title and you know that was a big moment home and my career so far <hes> wrestle out of state wrestling Texas and I've wrestled in Wyoming you know I've never really would have pictured myself being able to travel with this so you know it's this stuff like that yeah all right and do you have any kind of dream opponents that she would love to to get into the ring with either you know as a single competitor or as tag team and this could be anybody in the world anybody that you may have your eye on <hes>. I like to have a tag match with morale is against Lovie e of impact and then singles. I guess I like to have another match with with Dorian Matic's. You know <hes> I just you know okay well. That's that's that's that's cool. I like that you WanNa get another match with Dorian and I would just going to say I was going to add you know. Have you ever thought you said Ovalles so. Have you ever thought about you. In Morales go into those impact tapings. They have every once in a while in Vegas us. You know honestly we've actually thought about it and we're we're.

"I probably have to say number one hundred gray so we don't eat me and we're also at the luce Lebron laughs champion right now. We want those belts on Friday night so we're very excited about that <hes> after that <hes> miracle considering he's one of my best friends ends outside of wrestling and we had started tagging before I got hurt. Unfortunately my injuries slowed us down a little bit and he asked to take some time away unfortunately right now but I would like to reunite with him. Someday I know back in the day. Tagging with guys is like Wayne to Wayne. I don't know if you remember him but he he was quite a natural talent. He was trained by Lance Storm Back in two thousand eleven ish I believe but he was always fun the tag with and Kevin Mugune we only at the tag a few times but he was my initial training partner. Unfortunately he has taken time away. He's in the military right now but we did tag over the summer one last time so hopefully we can tag again all right okay now. What about <hes> dream opponents <hes> both in singles matches and tag team matches? That's always been like a putt well. When it comes to the dramatic I always turn out to focus on those? Sometimes it's just some would be rushing to think like oh that might allow never happened so I don't put it off out in future dream matches but obviously tag wise. I think a match-winning hunter and I I team. A jakarta-based team would be awesome so the Raga rockers versus another like character team yeah exactly battle cat and Super Thunder Frog Ugh Okay and both ice creams would be fun as well but yeah that'd be great for tag among stingles wise. I've really never put thought into that much judge. I know a lot of the guys that I've idolized. They're no longer in ed are wouldn't have the matches. I'd WanNa have <hes> do you think would be a good dream opponent for me actually actually it. Would you see me imagine that I'm turning it back to you. Well you know I <hes> you know I would like. You said I would love to see you <hes> square off with Delta Junior. I think that would be kind refund. It is it is it is kind of. It's always kinda tough win. A face faces another face because it's always when you when you <hes> for me as a fan. When you're you like you enjoy the wrestlers so much? It's hard to hard to do the always easy to do. The yeas and it's hard to do the best you know it's it's so it's so difficult to bet you know if could somehow work like A. Triple threat you know that's always that's always easier outta hill in there somewhere <hes> so it's it's it's it's it's. It's Kinda tough you you. I totally agree with you but <hes> going back to how you said about you. Know may facing somebody in Chicago. I mean <hes> you know like you said you just won the tag team championships of from in Luce Lebron laughs and I know <hes> they always bring seem to bring in a lot of Takura. <hes> talent so that I think is very good possibility so I'd say Nick if you're listening to this. Let's make it happen Yep. Bring on the colony there you go. That'd be fun too so <hes> <hes> but let's talk about you know continue to talk about the futures of so what do you got going on <hes> right now in the near future and hopefully the not too distant future well then Saturday. We have new era mile high comics showtime is six thirty. I believe and I will be facing duffed oil that night looking forward to that match match as always there will be. I'll be every month at new era every month. Primoz I apple sold. I will be on the next Lucho. Lebron laughed show on in February. I believe league. It's that weekend is the twenty first and twenty second. It's GonNa be a two night inter-gender tournament. Though that's a I recall Arado and I'm looking forward to that. Let me double check that the twenty second and twenty third. It's GONNA be an Inter Gender Tag Tournament Yeah so any idea who your partner is going to be. I actually do not know I know I am in the tournament but my my female partner has not been named yet oh well they haven't named a lot of if <hes> announcements but <hes> who would you like I mean they've so far they've announced <hes> talent <hes> Valkyrie and they've Jordan grace but any thoughts about who you would love to tag with her well. I gotta go Allie God so I mean she is the champ I mean that's the easiest choice there yeah and you're you could match outfits because you like purple and I know she likes purple so Yep Yep. We'd we'd probably have the flyest Elias entrance gear so that would work <hes> Bentley. She's really turned on the last few months and that would be interesting the tag with her. I know she's really young so that'd be that'd be fun the tag with her. I like the has all right well <hes> so bruce <hes> any I said so what <hes> so any other promotions that you Russell in besides New Era Lebron laughs in Primus D._S._W.. I am going to more regular there this year. I don't some of the scheduling didn't work out last year. They were running on some of the show dates as as new era but I should be regular at C._S.. W This year there are a couple more promotions that are GONNA be popping up in the few months. I can't one hundred percent confirm yet but I know I got some. I got some iron in the fire there regarding that so just keep an eye on the calendar for me <hes> I'll announce dates as soon as I know but yes there. There's a few more companies but he's in the works here in Denver so that's very exciting to hear <hes> I might be collaborating with a friend of mine who used to be involved wrestling. The longer is involved on a surface level of wrestling but we are in talks and trying to get something started in Denver as well so who knows maybe I might be throwing myself in the promotional game as well but we'll see what it'd be really hard to be much of pain Bot. I've been for some promoters now. I have to be the guy so that I don't know if I can be able to handle it but we're trying to work out some details. So maybe more later this year early next year. We'll see though see might be a little empathetic about <hes> being the promoter odor and being on the other side. You know it's like you know okay. These just being like how I was <hes> exactly or I'm hoping to say oh no. It was really easy. Why these guys make it so hard fantastic well before I let you go? Why don't you tell the listeners of they want to follow? You like on social media where it's your if you got facebook twitter excetera Yes yes <hes> facebook. There is my like page the Bruce Rogers page. If you just search for Bruce Rogers pro wrestling on facebook it should be the very first results instagram is it's simple. It's hail Bruce Rogers one word and twitter. It's at the double check mine. It is hail Rogers Eighty nine for the year. I was born fantastic so <hes> well bruce. I WANNA thank you for coming onto the show and <hes> I definitely will <hes> be there in person. I believe the Saturday for new Erin. Aaron and for other shows in the future so once again I thank you for coming on your welcome. I think I just thought of my dream match opponent though I think you know he's a former W._c._w.. Champion he's rebranding branding himself though he's hitting the these I I actually want to match David Arquette. I think that would be a whole lot of fun so nick. If you're listening that would be a lot of fun for Bruce Rogers. Yeah Okay I could. I could see that I mean yeah. So what do you think about him. <hes> so we'll <hes> continue on what do you think about him really <hes> getting into that you know do you think he caught the bug with <hes> the W._C._W.. And the <hes> ready to rumble movie and on something like that and then now he's just like I want to do this. I mean what what are your thoughts about that I mean how could you not catch the bug. I mean that W._C._W.. Locker with time with Sting D._D._p.. flair and I'm sure being more of all Dan they'd be in the Social Media Age. I'm sure for the last five or so years. He's probably read all the naysayers all the people that were saying he was the death of W._C._W.. Even though we all there's a million other factors leading to that right but I think it's awesome and even better with all the all the attention he's received all the bookings he's getting. He's not taking any of the money and it's all going want to charity so at the end of the that's probably the best 'cause yeah I I agree yeah and and you know it's what wrestling is supposed to be it's supposed to be about it's supposed to be having fun right. It's your training adventure. You want people to live through yeah exactly all right well great. I'm glad we got that last little bit thing in there and once again thank you for coming onto the podcast. Oh you're very welcome. Thank you for having me once again a big thank you to Bruce Rogers for coming on to the PODCAST and letting us get to know him a little bit better and finding out about his wrestling career his social social media links will be posted in the show notes so you can find them there and since I haven't recorded a episode in a while let me talk a little bit about what's been going on since the last time we've recorded first of all I've gone to of course a lot of shows. <hes> you know rocky mountain pro New Era Colorado springs wrestling <hes> literally right laughs had an event as well. Unfortunately I was a little bit under the weather for that <hes> and I even went to my first premo shelves. Let me talk about that. A little bit. <hes> pre most is held at the watering bowl <hes> over in Denver Colorado at the <hes> <hes> watering bowl. I it's a very interesting <hes> facility. It's a as you can maybe tell from the title watering bolts like a <hes> dog park themed kind of place <hes>. I think it's more mainly mainly the dogs are out in the day. They're not at night when we're the wrestling takes event. <hes> kind of like the the setup was kind of cool different. <hes> wrestlers come out from a high down some stairs to get to the ring. That's kind of fun and <hes> where I was sitting. We kind of <hes> were on <hes> parallel because they put embarks barstools type chairs for us to sit in on the floor so we were kind of on level with the Matt and it actually kind of gave a different kind of perspective I thought and that perspective was that the Rustler's were a little bit larger than life than when I'm normally used to seeing them so <hes> <hes> thought that was kind of a nice good contrasted look there <hes> the show was <hes> was very good. <hes> the main event <hes> was <hes> stupid crazy I would have to say <hes> and in a in a good way it just seemed like I was <hes> Delta Junior and <hes> zero monster filter for the Primose <hes> championship.

"I am your host Mr Fourth row and on this episode I I am joined by one of my local wrestling superstars and that's hell Rogers Bruce Rogers Bruce how you doing. I'm doing good man good to hear. Will I want <hes>. Thank you for coming onto to the PODCAST. I really appreciate it. Oh you're very welcome their unique. I've never done a podcast before. I'm an added podcast listener but I've never been on one so definitely unique Oko awesome so let's start at the beginning <hes>. Did you grow up watching wrestling as <hes> young. Yes I limit though I got into late in the game my older brother about eleven years older me. He was actually in the pro wrestling in the eighties nineties the boom period and my younger brother watch wrestling before I did he was watching during the attitude era days in the late nineties or so. I didn't start watching it till two thousand to do the summer of two thousand to about twelve years old at the time I remember like my one of my earliest episodes of episodes. I watched was smackdown and it was when seen debuted so that's about my timeline at for watching pro uh-huh wrestling started well. That's that's interesting how you being are now. Are you like the extremely middle child of your with your siblings. Yes I am the third of four three four okay so that's very interesting that year older got the <hes> the course the older in the you know younger kind of guts like one era before you. Did you know 'cause they call the attitude era the you know which you probably got I consider it's kind of what they call the reality era kind of can in there somewhere you know 'cause you know things kind of evolved in that kind of stuff so so did you so with. You're watching who was like your favorites to watch watch starting now. My favorites probably would have been like Kurt Angle. I was a big Eddie Guerrero Fan as well. I adjust started wrestling for middle school too. So yeah definitely Kurt Angle was a favorite of mine. I Love Brock initially. I actually started watching wrestling because if you're number two thousand two year the Scorpion King came out and I was a I became a fan of the Rock and my brothers like well. Why don't you watch wrestling? Finance <unk> filing dragged me in the watch wrestling and so you were <hes> participating in rustling in school and then you saw the dramatic flair that <hes> you know where you put a storyline behind it and that's what kind of got you hooked Yeah Yeah. It was adding that I I didn't like wrestling when I was younger it. It did scream phony to me unfortunately I I I loved the I still love <unk>. I still like regular sports like football and baseball basketball and hockey but yet wrestling grabbed my interest but I I am also an avid reader and I do watch a lot of movies so would have it came to adding the story lines in the characters it. It's are drawn in a little bit more than the average sports it at that time so then what <hes> made you say to yourself. I think I can actually do this move. I think maybe they started pushing more of the the smaller believable guys because I never thought I could be built like a whole Cogan or like a rock or like a or like brock I am I was tall but I never put on muscle mass. I was just a big tall twig back in the day. I hit six foot in middle school and I stopped there. I thought I was going to be in the N._B._A.. But once you hit six foot and you really can't dribble or shoot the ball a look for you <hes> but yeah I think when they start pushing the smaller more believable guys more of the technicians like Eddie and like Jericho. I felt like I could be those guys I size though if I if I hit the gym as hard as I can eat the right from all right <hes> so how did you started. <hes> you know <hes>. Did you go to rustling school or you know just kind of you know kind kind of winning all all feet first or or how did you get. How'd you get started? It was right after my senior year of high school wrestling ended and this was the my space days back in Oh aid I I found the butcher shop located on one hundred four back in the day in Northglenn so when my high school wrestling ended I started right in the pro wrestling unfortunately the first few years. I couldn't really commit as hard I wanted to because I was going to college working sometimes two jobs at the same time and I just couldn't give my all I would come to train his that. Could I do is probably one or two shows a month which you know the end the day it's not really hacking hacking. It wasn't <unk> till the last four years I started getting a lot better and getting on more shows so these last about three or four years minus like the injury years. I've been able to put a lot more into it and so. How long have you been in the professional wrestling business <hes> it was sometime in March of O._H.? When I had my first training session so about then give or take a few months and so are so so I've had to take off because of injuries because of work commitments but about ten years on and off right now yeah and so you I mean I hate the ring up? <hes> maybe a sore subject but you just recently within and this is kind of. I think really really interesting timing that we are recording. I believe one year to the date that you came back from your most recent injury. Is that correct Yep. I got to come back and I got to. I think it was might have been like a day or two ago. Was He and I think I posted that picture today. I think that was just the anniversary. I got the picture. Okay close enough yeah close enough though yeah it's been about a year since I came back. I got the tag up with my buddy miracle so without that was great that he would do that for me left to be my tag partner my match back <hes> that was not a that was definitely a year. I'd had the scratch off unfortunately what most people don't know. It was more than in the A._C._l.. Injury we unfortunately about two months into my rehab gotten a really bad car wreck which slow down my re my rehabilitation I had to deal with some neck and back issues along with ending surgery so it was more than just a knee surgery. I fortunately at that time yeah but you know I think I saw you. You still were hanging out and go into shows and hanging with the boys and stuff so you know I mean. I bet that helped a little bit but also got you anxious to. I want to get back. I WANNA get back back. It got me pretty anxious. I know like miracle was having a lot success that year and he's probably one of my closest friends for wrestling outside of wrestling and then cody was doing a lot of things to. Who <hes> and he's a is a little ambitious guy on? He was definitely a driving force me to help me come back. He was actually disturbed me because he called me the day after my surgery and I don't I don't handle calls very well a more. I'm more of a text guy pleased. Cody do not call me unless there is an emergency. I'm not the only one that's that way. A fun fact asserts that way too so if you call people hang up immediately oh I I believe that knowing what I know if you and you'll tell him hills like oh this hang up into start texting mytalk. That's funny yeah so cody. Cody deathly helped me a lot with getting motivated and getting back and when I came back last year to training about August or so <hes> it was cody <hes> Delta Junior and Zander creed. We were working out at a gym in commerce. City helped me get my form bag and trying some new stuff I I've added some different moves in different <hes> some different psychology to my character. Since I've come back it might not be noticeable to the average fan but it makes a world different. Semi had more of a define move said than I used to have so. Do you know <hes> you and I've probably know each other for <hes> baby going on probably almost a year so I'm don't know a lot of the old staff so but I can say just for the current stuff looks looks pretty darn. Darn good to me so yes. I feel this is probably my best for my <unk>. I've ever had actually so it was it was nice to finally i. The year helps me reset a lot. Mentally I could kind of see the Zizi the forest through the tree yeah. Maybe that's the express to see the force through the trees. I kinda put aside as because there was a grind it was go to work. It was go to go to lifting go to train and there wasn't really loud room for original thought Kinda just need a year to to mentally reset along with the rehabilitation so it helped a lot and it's it's improved. It's improved my work a lot so <hes> shortly after are you came back. You won the <hes> New Era <hes> kind of think remember fifty camp yet yeah so how was that town did not feel to shortly come back from the injury and capture <hes> gold already. It was very validating I. I was really excited that they made that decision to put the to put a title on me. I hadn't like I had regained by one hundred percent at that time I was still maybe two months back or so but it was nice to see that they had faith in me to allow me to do that and maybe work a lot more harder. I'm in a lot better shape than I was at this time last year so I'm happy for that and that time really helps motivate me get my head straight <hes> and it was it also gave me a chance to work with variety guys I hadn't worked up before and have a little bit more of a bigger match field for my matches. Okay well then and speaking of that who are your <hes> some of your favorite people to opponents to work with coincidentally. I'll actually be a rest of a UH facing off one of my favorite opponents this Saturday and that's a tough toil. I love working with Dove.

"John Wyatt's, offering daily commentary during Mark Belling program. Also, Gregory, John who's temporarily indisposed I think he he had salad sandwich at a gas station or something like that was never a good idea. It's intensify. Here. Did you go back to the last segment know what that means? The storm is brewing. And and that other voice you just heard. There was mad cattle from the macgyver institute a frequent WFAN contributor and also speak out. We'll cross plug this. I know that that later on today at various times, there is the retrospect the legacy of Scott Walker retrospective, our long that the macgyver institutes put together and a great job on that. And we're happy to have it on the radio station. What a great way to celebrate New Year's Eve to look back at perhaps the more successful governor Wisconsin in my lifetime. And I'm old. So thank you, actually. That's that's an important point. Perhaps we'll get to it later. But it is he has been described governor Scott Walker as one of the two most consequential governors in the history of the state of Wisconsin was the word Knowles. Anthony earl. The other the other, of course, being fighting Bob LA salad and the gentleman who told me that Kurt Bauer from Wisconsin manufacturers and commerce said governor Scott Walker has been so successful because he's dismantled the legacy of fighting. Yeah. That was going to be in this segment expound upon it a little bit more, man. Give me give me thirty more seconds on Walker's legacy. And what what the the perspective of of the mcgyver institute in. You might be really remarkable, quite frankly, you take a look back, and we talked to of course, a number of people who knew him best former Walker administration officials lawmakers like state soon to be state Senator Dale Coyne. And really it's about reforms just especially two thousand eleven but beyond that just think about where we were as the state of Wisconsin three point six billion dollar budget deficit and a Konami in shambles nine point three unemployment rate. No jobs and just a lot of people in a bad position. And the reforms put in place turn this state around over the last eight years. Yeah. I I think that's that's well put in well summed up and fortunately, thirty one thousand people more than forgot about that that process that you just described more than who remembered and that was the margin of victory for for Tony who will get to shortly. Dave, the the legacy of Scott Walker and a few words would be what he didn't back down. It's easy to make proposals. It's a little bit more challenging to get those proposals enacted. But when the left and Democrats, I know it's hard to keep the two straight. Came after him. He didn't back down. And that's the biggest thing that Republicans in Washington DC. And that's one of the reasons why President Trump is popular with the base. That's he is is he makes proposals. He says it's peace, and he sticks to it with everything. The media throws Adam interesting, Ken. Yeah. I think his ability to set forth a plan and not worry about especially when you're stuck in a place like Madison, I'm sure it would have been simpler to run state government from while. We're tosa home from his home rather than having people screaming marching singing all at the same time while you're trying to get serious changes that have clearly worked. I mean, the turnaround as you mentioned in the economy in the state is quite astounding, and it and its way ahead of the pace of these kind of tepid pace of the national economy's recovery. And Ben even though you spent the last several years. In the land of Lincoln. I know that during the long all the mayhem in eleven and twelve year here. I think that I think that it gives me a bit of a different perspective. I think I think of two things I think Scott Walker one inspirational because you have Scott Walker then you had Mike Pence Eric Holcomb in Indiana. The navy seal who turned out to be a fifty shades of grey fan. Eric brightens down in Missouri. The governor of Kentucky's name is escaping me for the time being but you had after Scott Walker success in two thousand eleven a number of of middle. American Republicans take a look and say, we can do the same thing. You also had Bruce rounder in Illinois, and he turned out to be the biggest disappointment of the mall because he didn't have the magic mixture Walker. Walker did have the advantage of having some very very staunch conservatives in controlling the state legislature, and Bruce Rogers done they're dealing with Matt again, this is no way to get any Scott Scott Walker made it look easy that all you have to do is be right and stand by your convictions. The other thing that I think of particularly being out of the state of Wisconsin about Scott Walker is how disappointing his run for president was and I know that that's not two thousand eighteen but when you look at the legacy governor Scott Walker fantastic presidential candidate Scott Walker. I'll tell you. I mean, I pretty good insight and some behind the scenes stuff on exactly that. So I'll turn it loose. The first thing is that I think that twenty eighteen might have still had a little twenty fifteen hangover effect in the state of Wisconsin that he might not have won back. Everybody who was a staunch supporter because there was a lot of disappointment in this this imagery of him being an absentee governor will while running for president, that's one thing. But the second thing is he went from his trusted circle of advisers. And I I'm not gonna name names mad. They you know, who these guys are very cagey. You've you know, who that one is if you think about who who that might be and he got into the world of of national political consulting. These guys did know Scott Walker from Atta with regard to his appeal, and and what made him tick, and what made him popular, and what made him effective and all of a sudden he's answering questions he never should've taken a position on. He's you know, he's saying something then having to walk it back right away. I mean, all these things that took his campaign.

"Addition to that. We should look at systems that would allow for example, a person like me to vote anywhere wanted to vote and as long as I put in my address, the proper ballot would appear in front of me, if everything is computerized young Julian, why do I have to go all the way back to Clayton county in order to vote when I work in Atlanta, and I can vote right here in Atlanta. As long as I put in my address, everything should come up properly as far as my district is concerned. There's a state Representative a good friend of mine. He's been on this program. Many times young Julia named Roger Bruce Roger Bruce, presented legislation that would have made it legal for you to basically vote anywhere in the county. And that vote be applied to your precinct rather than you having to go to a particular precinct. He proposed. Hey, we have the technology. So did you can actually vote anywhere. And that vote will be counted in the right precinct. Now that makes sense because you see in that there's issues with technology in a lot of different places that are causing people to call for voter fraud. You know, there's there's things wrong. There's even a story. I put out there today that spoke on how some voter machines in Florida were overheating well actually the voting machine overheated, and then the backup broke down, and that's causing people not to vote or is causing people wait in long. That's real voter suppression, by the way, that's real voter suppression. So what point in time are we just going to make this switch, and I know it's going to take a lot of money because you have to make sure that things are official and whatnot. But I mean, I think that's the question that we might need to truly address I opened up to the rest of the listeners. I when are we going to move to a democracy that votes via technology? Four zero four eight nine two two seven zero three also a big push by lawmakers, especially those of the progressive angle is to create some sort of receipt for your vote right now when you vote there was absolutely no proof that you voted when I transact business as a consumer. I have proof that I purchased gas today. I have proof that I paid my phone Bill. I have proof that I had breakfast. I have no proof that I voted. I have no evidence that are participating in this democracy and exercise my fundamental right to choose who represents me. I have no proof now later proof is generated through a database that says you participate that's later later on. But at the moment of trans action. I have absolutely no paper trail, and neither does the government at least what they pay per ballot. There was an actual paper trail that the government could follow two day. The government has no paper trail, you have no paper trail. So what is the true strength of our democracy? Your faith and their technology. And that is it. Your faith, and their technology is the true strength of our current democracy. I do have hesitations with a four a four technology system for voting..
