BLM Rioters Burst Into Burlington Store in North Hollywood

"I just watched a video of crazy left wing antifa BLM protesters forcing their way into the Burlington store in north Hollywood. And abused the security guard who happened to be black, and you should hear, we may post this, the trouble is we got to bleep it so much. But what's happening in American cities? Is so frightening. I'm in New York. Where the local media is reporting that there were 8 8 subway assaults over the weekend. 8. People are being stabbed. People are being thrown in front of subways. You got, I've told you before, there are places in New York, the 42nd up on 42nd street, the port authority, it looks like the night of the living dead. It looks like zombies. All these deranged homeless people, many of whom are violent, just roaming around, attacking people. So, and what they just did this Burlington, Andy no posted this on Twitter. Left wing protesters forced their way inside the Burlington store in north Hollywood and manhandled the security guard. A teen was tragically shot dead there last year in crossfire when police from police when they were responding to a man beating a woman nearly to death. So I guess antifa and BLM wants to target the Burlington store in north Hollywood. And this poor security guard, black guy, got a mask on. He's got a hat on says security. They're saying, you're just an N word with a hat on. They don't care about your black ass. They're screaming at him. And then they just storm in to terrorize the Burlington store. What the Burlington store do? What are those employees do?

"Really important. I'm also going to get some flack for this from this crowd, but I grew up in Boston. Often voted the most racist city in the country. I would growing up would tend to agree with that. And I'm pretty impressed with the knowledge you have the statistics and things that you can bring to your argument. So you've probably seen this study, but there was a study done by The Boston Globe in 2015 that outlined the average family wealth by race in the city of Boston. And that found that the average family wealth in Boston for African American family was $8. And it found the average family wealth for a white family was $250,000. And I'm wondering how to me, that's a perfect example of a system that has been racist since the beginning of our country leading up to the study in 2015 that shows that something has been leading us on this path that makes it much harder for people of color to achieve a middle class lifestyle. And I just want to know what your response to be would be that. Yeah, that's a thoughtful question. And thank you. So disparities blaming disparities simply and solely on racial discrimination is a mistake. And I will yield to the great Thomas sole on this. You wrote a whole book on it called discrimination and disparities. So disparate outcomes and blaming it solely on racial discrimination on these incredibly complex and numerous inputs and variables is something that is widely over generalistic. And so let's look at when the black middle class was growing the fastest in our country. So I'm going to give you my perspective in Boston or in a nationwide. So I can't speak specifically to Boston. But certain studies have been done very similar in Chicago, where I'm from and many others, which is pretty exciting. It used to be a great city. Yes, you're right. And so for example, in 1950s, when the black middle class was growing the fastest. And then in the 1960s, we passed the great society act, which intervened started the subsidized single motherhood. Now the single motherhood rate before the great society act was 23 24%, more or less. After the great society act, it is now upwards of 70 to 77% based on what city you look at. Now America, maybe you disagree with this, but I believe it's a fact got considerably less racist since the 1960s. Do you agree with that? Maybe maybe not. That is just so hard to land on. I can't, how do you measure that? Electing a black president. I would say that that's we have maybe 30 black presidents. I would say we're on the right track. Okay. How about let me ask you, how about allowing how many white presidents versus black presidents have we had? Right. Well, also, more white people were running for office than black individuals. But let me just finish ask another question. Haven't always been allowed to run for office? And that's not necessarily true. There was a moment where that was true. But starting in the early the late 1800s early 1900s, there was a huge movement of black individuals running for elected office. I'll get to that in a second, though. But I think it's unquestionable that America is significantly less racist today than the 1960s. Major League Baseball was a white only league. We had Jim Crow in the south. We had poll taxes, literacy tests. Those have been completely eliminated. In fact, it's now opposite what's happening. We're resegregating our schools. We have a supply and demand problem with racism in America where we have such one second. I'm going to have a supply. We have undersupplied racism and incredibly demand to try to find it. So the question is why all of a sudden the black middle class growth slowed down to a grinding halt and single motherhood go from 26% in the 1960s to well over 70% today. And some people would say, racism, again, I just think it's incredibly objectively true America has become significantly less racist since the 1960s. And just in every single metric possible and imaginable. But what hasn't what has changed is that we spent trillions of dollars to subsidize bad behavior, keep fathers out of the home of a broken education system that fosters illiteracy and unfortunately bad outcomes and outputs. And so that question altogether is one much more about whether or not the nuclear family was together unless about skin color. And so the question is, why did it go from 26% in single motherhood to 70%? I'm curious what your explanation would be for that. I don't have an explanation for that. I'm still wondering how you can explain the wealth gap in Boston. I just did. Right, because most blacks are born without a father and most whites are born with a mother and a father. That is the number one indicator and predictor of whether or not you will be able to build wealth and stay in a middle class lifestyle. So it takes three things according to the brooking institution to stay out of poverty and break into the middle class. Graduate high school, get a job any job and get married before you have kids. Those are three things. Regardless of skin color, regardless of where you come from. Unfortunately, we made those things very those three things very difficult in many communities specifically urban communities. And the people that designed them, they might have meant well, I don't think they really did. But you could look at the great society program, the creation of Department of Education, the destruction of black homes and the integration of these vertical housing units. Just some numbers here like black boys are almost half as likely to end up incarcerated and twice as likely to go into graduate from college for single parents. If they're raised in a home with their two parents compared to boys, just raid by one parent. So it's almost the numbers are incredibly differential in that capacity in that regard. And so I would just encourage you, we don't have time to get into this. Just look into the studies of my Thomas sole race. As you look at disparate outcomes, don't blame discrimination. I'll give you a great example, which is can we blame the fact that mountain towns and landlocked states are poorer than river towns and port towns? We can't blame racism on that. The fact is your proximity to a port or the proximity to an ocean or to a river makes you a wealthier town. I use that as an example because you look at you look at a town like buildings, Montana, they're much poorer than a town like Boston, Massachusetts, not because of racism. If you just proximity where commerce and trade happens, there are sometimes other explanations for disparate outcomes than just blaming it on discrimination..

"This alongside of you and that you are now going to be able to say, you know what? They might take my job, but they'll never take my liberty, my agency and my choice away from you. God bless you. Thank you for being here tonight. I appreciate it. What's up Charlie? As you might hear, I'm from Germany. I'm actually from East Germany. So my family, the last hundred, ten years, I spent through a monarchy. They've been through fascism, national fascism and socialism. And in the end, they were finally free. And take a walk as which system, which is something like the most. Yes. It was freedom. So what I'm worried about is right now, when I came to the United States in 2018, as a student here, I saw the U.S. as a Beacon of freedom in the world. You guys were free U.S. web patriots. I love that. Like in Germany, it's not like that anymore. And now we came back like I was a year in the military last year because of COVID and all that. And I just got back and people liked them to tell me a socialist. One in the world. They're dismissing 300 million dead people by Dan by Joseph Stalin done by people in East Germany. My family, we have to have because of that regime. So what can we do against it? What can we foreigners like me here do against that as a plague? And I'm afraid that the U.S. is not what it's like supposed to be anymore. I want to just emphasize this point, I'm going to ask you a question in a second, which is we have foreign students coming to America fleeing totalitarianism through many generations to be taught by our professors and bullied by our young people that they don't know what tyranny is. And so I want to ask you this question, which is, did you ever expect to come to an American university and have to be taught what socialism actually is? Exactly, I never expected that. The first thing I saw when I went into my into my faculty, one of the history professors, he had a picture of Karl Marx in front of it. Of Karl Marx, when I'm from I got Tod about Marxism and all that. And people here worshiping hallmarks like in the U.S., I can't believe that absolutely wild. How? Well, I'll say this that I hope Americans start to wake up and realize that what they are trying to bring into this country. What they are trying to implement has already not been tried, but there is a horror show in their wake. And so let me ask you this. If Bernie Sanders was listening, what would you tell them? I would say, Barney, come over, look, and talk to the people. Talk to the people that actually experience what you are preaching. None of them. I also, just like my remaining friend here. None of them will tell him that socialism is a good thing. And it's horrible that he's using this word socialism himself. Well, here's one thing that touches me. You love America more than most Americans do. And God bless you for being here tonight. Thank you. Dunker Shane..

"Good evening, sir. I got to say I'm a little sad that my Friends from UVM love because this question was geared a little bit towards them, but I guess I can take my mask off now. So this question might be a little bit enraging to especially my Friends on the left and maybe some people on the right as well. But I come from the great state of New York, where I in turn for our Republican congresswoman Claudia Tony, lover to death. And when I worked for her, I was attacked by the left every day by keyboard warriors for allegedly being anti immigrant anti LGBTQ and anti feminist. The ironic side of this is that I grew up in an inner city environment with a single mother who came from a socialist, you casia, where they murdered those who spoke out in favor of minority and LGBTQ rights, and also shocking to hear it to allow on the left. I am a bisexual Republican with a wonderful girlfriend. So that's a little scary to people, I guess. But aside from all of this, the only identity I really can associate myself truly is an American at the end of the day. So how old conservatives and libertarians like myself save our comrades on the left from the horrid lives of horrid lies of socialism and identity identity politics that not everyone needs to conform to their individual way of life, which a lot of them do not seem to realize. Thank you for being here tonight. That's a great question. And I just want to say, look, I think our first guy that adds that ask that question was kind of spot on. The reason why conservatives libertarians are kind of agreeing at this very moment is because of this issue is because they're trying to put in identity politics, trying to organize people based on unchangeable type characteristics. I guess your question specifically, what do we do about this kind of social tyranny that we're living through? Well, you being here and speaking out, it drives them crazy, right? Is that very important thing that they want to try to have social control over us? They want to try to be able to say, you can't speak here. You can't do that that we are the final say. We have the heckler's veto, if you will. We're not going to put up with that. The more you try to resist us the more we want to come to Burlington. The more you try to cancel us, the more we actually want to show up. And so I would just want to encourage you to keep on speaking out regardless of that call you anti this anti that it's meaningless, garbage type phrases that they try to use to suppress speech that they try to use to control opposition and try to have good ideas not be spread. But thank you for being here tonight and glad you took.

"I have one very. Because I'm from a mixed family. I have one question for you. And I don't know how you can answer it for me. I would like to understand where Conservative Party sits with our treaties because I have two members of my family that are Native American. My brother and my husband. And I follow a lot of the things that go on. I know about treaties. I teach my kids about the natives and the real history. You know, I've pushed for real history, not this narrative, you know, of what's going on. So where does the conserve to sit with this? Because I never hear anything about it. And I feel like I'm alone voice advocating for them. I haven't even asked that question in a while. I probably sympathize with you more than most, which is that the Native American population was given a real obviously raw deal and was exploited and was abused. Where the treaties I can't really comment on that because I'm not as well read into that, especially this part of the world. I will say that in states like Oklahoma, Arizona, New Mexico, this is the top issue because of the sizable Native American population. But so I'm happy to talk to you privately about that. Not exactly something on that well read up on to be perfectly honest. But I do want to say thank you for your kind words at the beginning of how I was able to impact your beliefs and what you believe in. And I believe it's a conservative value to respect people that were here indigenously and strike that balance. And I also want to say this, though, that we have done a disservice through the bureau of Indian affairs by almost instituting socialism on these Native American reservations. Those good intentions have done the opposite. It's actually hurt a lot of Native American and indigenous populations across the country when it might have been intended to help. They have the highest rates of alcoholism, some of the worst outputs, healthcare wise, especially if you visited the Native American reservation, especially out west, they're unfortunately some of the most depressing places you could go to. So happy to talk privately about that. But thank you for being here tonight and your kind.

Conservatives Believe Happiness Is a Choice

"We as conservatives believe that happiness is a choice. I'll let you guys determine if my wonderful comrades here are happy or not. We are. We're happy. Regardless of how bad things are falling apart in our country. We're happy to be alive. We're thankful for our existence. Happiness is a choice. If you go around trying to find happiness, all of a sudden you'll seek pleasure over virtue. If you try to go find happiness as a state, it's nonsense. And we as Christians are commanded to be joyful and all circumstances. And this is a very important point because sometimes in the northeast, this message doesn't go over well, because it's kind of a gruff group of people in the northeast at times. Sometimes you don't see the sun like half the year. I get it. It's hard. No, instead, happiness is a choice. It's a state of mind. It's something that you must commit yourself. You must work at it too. You must say, man, what am I thankful for today? And I'm not trying to diminish suffering. Let me be very clear. Everybody here has something you're going through. And it's a serious thing. And if there's a way that we can help you, I pray that that will show itself in that way. But that's not to say, what does it mean to live a fulfilling life to walk around always looking at something worthy of protesting, tearing down, deconstructing, disassembling or saying, man? If I made these ten choices if I stop drinking, if I stop doing drugs, if I stop complaining, maybe my life will improve a little

The Greatest Battle You Will Experience in Life Is You vs. You

"Want we as conservatives then I kind of just say this in general that we want to design a society that gives preference on your choices and your actions and your behavior, not on your complaints or your grievances or the mobilization thereof. Now, don't get me wrong. I'm perfectly kind of on board with breaking up certain companies and using political power to try and make that easier. But generally, I think that it's very important for people to try and prioritize that the greatest battle you'll experience in life is not Charlie Kirk versus climate change. Or Charlie Kirk versus the oil companies. Now, Charlie Kirk versus Charlie Kirk. That it is the struggle within that we must tell young people that we must understand that it's self control that the improvement of your own character is the thing that you must prioritize above anything else. And it's a disservice to tell young people, you know what the greatest struggle in life is you against racism. The greatest struggle in life is you against, no, the greatest struggle in life is you gonna be able to control your own impulses to work up early to go to work to say that I want to become a better and more developed human being and put very simply.

"Authoritarian and fascist. And I think it's I think it's an important point because if our ideas were so terrible, then just let it happen and don't show up. Don't try to make it this kind of hobby or task to try to eliminate somebody who just disagree with. And I think that goes to a broader point, which is that activism mixed with moral righteousness gives people a false sense of purpose. And unfortunately, we see this a lot at very, very left wing campuses, which there's a purpose crisis in our country. And it's a very real thing. And things that give people purpose should be responsibility, relationships, spiritual connection, not necessarily protesting some speaker that's coming into an hour and a half lecture and then walk outside of the room. And just leave. And that's a deeper and more profound point, which is America's becoming a place where students in particular are less happy than ever before. And we're going to talk about this in a little bit and what actually brings happiness and why is that important? Because I believe happiness is a choice, not a feeling. And that's something that they will not teach you at most college campuses. They say, no, it's something that you can feel if you check certain boxes on your way there. But when you see some of the activists that are demanding cancellation of viewpoints that they disagree with, there is kind of this renewal of purpose that I finally have something to do. And that might sound silly, but if you look at city by city, the people that show up and do these types of protests and show up with that kind of fervor, it's almost as if the idea of I am doing the right thing to try to eliminate the person that I fundamentally disagree with. Let me just say there's something a lot more fulfilling out there than being a protester, that you can start a family, a business, travel, go for a hike that the most important thing in your life should be the things that last forever. You should prioritize the eternal over the temporal. And this is something that I think we need to be more be more honest about, which is as we look at students and we look at the younger generation, a lot of people say, Charlie, why does it seem as if they are so adamant at trying to shut up other people? He's not everybody, but there's a lot of students here that are not trying to shut people up and you guys deserve credit for that. But it's a growing cohort and it's kind of going with momentum. And just some buy some background, by the way, we only publicize the event, the address of this event, very recently, because the first hotel we had came under a very targeted campaign from certain people that didn't want us to be here. In Burlington, right? And I thought to myself, don't you have anything better to do? No, you don't. Actually, is that the whole purpose is trying to contact Hilton to try to not let them go down 'cause he's a fascist, but we're not a fascist. And I actually want to just extend an olive branch and it's like, please go explore the world and explore the scriptures and explore a relationship with God and Jesus Christ because there's something so much more beautiful out there than just trying to cancel other people. It's actually not.

"State is actually conservative. And. I'm not saying you should take it out of the equation, but I'm sure a lot of you say New York you could take it. You can add Burlington. It wouldn't make much of a difference. But it is this kind of this situation where I think that and this kind of goes back to the question why am I here? Well, I'm here precisely to show the world that even in the place that you're not supposed to go as a conservative. Bernie Sanders hometown, Burlington, what are you doing there? No, we as conservatives need to go to all places. Like we need to go to places that we've never been before, including the most liberal cities in America. And bring our message of optimism and one of human empowerment and one of the constitutional liberty and small art Republican style government to every single corner of the country, but a university of Oregon next week, which will be really interesting. And but that's something I want just every conservative here tonight. Maybe not a conservative, obviously, we've got plenty of those tonight. Which is, which is don't be afraid to go places that you might not feel welcome. And that's an important thing for life, which is do not allow other people to dictate the terms of engagement for you, which is it would have been very easy for us to show up at just friendly territory. But to go place for some time is a little bit of a commotion. And I also want to just reward the activists too. At turning point USA, because they're the ones that put on these events. They're the ones that have to get spit on and they get mocked and ridiculed doxxed and publicized for this. You know what? We as pro American activists and advocates, we need to stand next to our activists that are on these campuses because the truth is an amazing thing that when you release the truth that has a way of defending itself. And that's one of the reasons why we're here is to try to have the uncomfortable conversations, try to challenge the orthodoxy. You know what? There's actually more of us than you might actually think in this area. Viewpoint and platform. No, at least some form of discussion and dialog. And so there's a couple of things I want to talk about before we get to questions. I want to talk about the death of liberal America, which is a very important thing. And the liberal America being different than you might think. There's a difference between liberals and leftists. Leftists are people that wish to shut people like myself up liberals would disagree with my current speech, but they'd say, okay, yeah, whatever. I might come ask a question, but I'm not going to make a big point out of trying to cancel or trying to destroy your ability to speak. And, you know, it's very interesting, kind of reading some of the publications leading up to this event, where it says we must shut down fascist Charlie card. Who's the fascist exactly the one that's the one that's coming to speak or the person that wants you not to be able to speak? That's awfully.

"Center point of American society. And the third thing that I love about Vermont is your gun laws. I have to say, you guys have great gun laws. You really do. We got pastor Todd here from ignite church. Now, here's some things that Vermont can improve upon, right? Vermont is the third least church state in the country and not by its right there on the edge. Some people are very supportive of that. And that goes to show that the more secular estate comes the less free it is. And when you do not have people regularly attend church when you remove a belief in a transcendent order, then you're going to have to replace that with something. And sometimes that something is something that is is collectivist in nature and unfortunately sometimes authoritarian and tyrannical in nature. And so you could look at a direct correlation of as people start to say, you know, I want to reject religion or a belief in God, they're going to have to then pursue something in their life, whether it be materialism or statism to try and fill that type of void. And I will reinforce this that what liberty can only be handled by people that are moral and virtuous. John Adams said it best at the founding of our country where he said that John Adams said that the constitutional republic was made wholly and only for a moral and virtuous people. It is wholly inadequate for the people of any other. So what does that mean moral and virtuous? Well, if you do not believe in a God, then morality is simply a form of opinion. You only know that a line is crooked if you have a straight line to compare it to. And if you get down into the metaphysics of it, eventually, and there's been plenty of people that have tried Christopher Hitchens and Dawkins and many others that have made a pretty good attempt at it. That absent an idea of a creator making creation. That's an idea of a transcendent type morality, which, by the way, is baked into a lot of our western traditions. Thou shalt not steal. Thou shalt not murder. Don't take people's stuff, then you are going to all of us and enter a cycle where the strongest person wins the argument, where it's the person that is in charge. It's the person that is controlling the particular power apparatus, not the person that actually has a public and agreed upon type of moral system to judge itself phone. And so Vermont, I think is at an interesting place. I actually the state's far more conservative than actually people put it on. You take Burlington out of the equation. The.

"And I think there's something special about Vermont that we shouldn't forget that we as conservatives should focus on, which is the idea of preserving the small against the big, which is that sometimes it's important that we as conservatives recognize we want to have local communities stay strong, family stay strong and that we of course want limited government, but we also don't want overreaching corporations either destroying timeless family businesses that have been passed down. And so I kind of always like coming to Burlington, I don't know if Burlington likes me coming, but apparently it's thank you, where it's. Actually really interesting and important where this is one of the few cities that has still kind of kept at least from an aesthetic standpoint the idea of small town America. And not wanting these soulless godless corporations to come in and destroy small business and entrepreneurship and there's some very interesting contradictions that I think that Vermont is living through right now that we'll talk about. Because Vermont has always been this idea that we want to keep the way we want to keep things the way they are, which is actually a conservative idea. And some people on the more socialistic left would disagree, they would say that, well, no, we want to we want to abolish private property or stop business, see they're already cheering for the abolition of private property. We have a nice start already. So you won't mind if I take your poorly worded sign. I could tell. So they must be consistent then. But there is this idea though that we as conservatives in the last 18 months, thankfully have stopped being corporate cheerleaders. I think that's a really healthy thing that we as conservatives should stand for the good the true the beautiful for the local and the decentralized, not the foreign and the distant and the

"And I think there's something special about Vermont that we shouldn't forget that we as conservatives should focus on, which is the idea of preserving the small against the big, which is that sometimes it's important that we as conservatives recognize we want to have local communities stay strong, family stay strong and that we of course want limited government, but we also don't want overreaching corporations either destroying timeless family businesses that have been passed down. And so I kind of always like coming to Burlington, I don't know if Burlington likes me coming, but apparently it's thank you, where it's. Actually really interesting and important where this is one of the few cities that has still kind of kept at least from an aesthetic standpoint the idea of small town America. And not wanting these soulless godless corporations to come in and destroy small business and entrepreneurship and there's some very interesting contradictions that I think that Vermont is living through right now that we'll talk about. Because Vermont has always been this idea that we want to keep the way we want to keep things the way they are, which is actually a conservative idea. And some people on the more socialistic left would disagree, they would say that, well, no, we want to we want to abolish private property or stop business, see they're already cheering for the abolition of private property. We have a nice start already. So you won't mind if I take your poorly worded sign. I could tell. So they must be consistent then. But there is this idea though that we as conservatives in the last 18 months, thankfully have stopped being corporate cheerleaders. I think that's a really healthy thing that we as conservatives should stand for the good the true the beautiful for the local and the decentralized, not the foreign and the distant and the

Which i'm now making sure that our team sales for spills into the product tell other company leaders in sas not make the mistake that i did. The first one is what. I call account based support. We've all heard of abm. We did that in hearsay. Abm didn't help us with bob. Abm actually made bob madder because every time we try to nurture him with thought leadership or up sell him on a new product. He was reminded that we were working on things other than the thing that he asked for three years ago. So if we take a step back right first let's talk about what kinds of support cases usually get resolved. I throw the quick and easy ones. The ones that you're tier one support agents can do first call resolution. Everyone's happy restart device reset your password. Reauthenticate burlington account then. There are the high severity cases. You're step one step two your psychos down. Everybody from engineering is no rushing into the proverbial office pulling all nighter to get the site backup asap l.

It was an enormous pain not to have it but it got lost in the mix. So i've been thinking about this pretty much nonstop for the last five years and this notion of account based support it's meant to solve issues like box and if you think about all of the different customer facing functions be have enterprise sales it's inherently account based marketing has gone based in the last few years. Now it's supports ternan services.

We tried to kind of kind of came back and we were like well. I think we need to have this address than and you know at this point. We've been living in about for almost three years and once we dug deeper we discovered a much much worse. Problem with the mold and rotten are sub floor. So yeah. I've been with three years at that point when this all kind of started. Okay so you see just noticed this fungus growing and so what did you what did you do. Yes i mean. The first time we saw we we tried to we. We did the kind of diy solution so we kind of cut it off the ground. We abide some mold killing disinfectant solution that we bound when we research thought maybe that was it but within a couple of weeks it was back at that point. We then called ambled mediation cyrus around a nearby. Think from new hampshire. And that's when they came in to look at it. Okay so the what did they do when they when they get there. Yes so he took a look at it and you know he. He recognized that we probably had to tear like remove the kitchen cabinets. Tear up some floorboards and really gap a source of bit spray. Down needed disinfect into the the sub floor and then early backyard. Basically okay so and that and so. That's what you did so you remove the kitchen cabinets. Yeah this was in early november so we had to actually also contractor kind of a a normal kitchen remodeling contractor to do the first and third day we should have been removed the cabinets and after the motor mediation on the second day but the cabinets back in place and re put a few new floorboards back in and ripped up so now your bio says that you live in burlington but but are used.

One Thing Millennials Aren't Killing? Public Transportation

"Millennials are often blamed for killing things. You know like gulf mayonnaise vacations marriage. It's almost become a cliche. Well there is one. Many millennials and their younger counterparts in gen z save public transportation urban living concern for the environment and a lack of romanticism. About cars are some other reasons why. Npr's mvp has more. There's one word that twenty four year old michelle. Santa maria keeps using when she talks about public transit. I feel like it's so cute. it's just cute. it's so cute. i think it's cute. I mean it's clear that for her. Public transportation is about a lot more than just getting from point a to point b. santa. Maria is one of the many millennials who aren't as car crazy as their parents generation. She belongs to a facebook group called. And brace yourself. It's a mouthful. New urbanism seems for transit oriented teens. The acronym is numb tots. Which is what they call themselves. There are more than two hundred thousand members. And they share funny posts but also debate transportation policies and fantasize about a world in which nobody needs a car but the pandemic has crushed that dream across the country drop in ridership have led to budget cuts and service rollbacks which means a lot of trains and buses are coming less frequently. If at all said the honest it's infuriating in a way. William clark is also a number top. He's twenty five years old and lives in philadelphia. He worries about transit workers as well as the commuters who ride buses and subways not because they love them but because they don't have a choice because when you reduce the amount of service you have to pack more people onto your vehicles at least a higher possibility of contract code. It's actually pretty scary. He works from home now. But he's trying to support the system in other ways. He's a member of a transit. Riders union in philadelphia where he advocates for the needs of writers in the city. Who might not be able to make public meetings across the country. Twenty five year old. Alex lee is advocating for transit. In san jose california he got himself elected to the state legislature and appointed to the transportation committee. If you start putting transit then you're really hurting the people that depend on it. Most people who don't have access to cars or people who rely on these little life against soon for work and lobbies are essential workers twenty-seven-year-old tens and trump used to be one of those essential workers. He was an icu nurse until he moved to vermont in burlington mason wide. And here's the other thing. It's the middle of january. We just had a snowfall and biplane is just as clear as any road. He left in part because he feared for his life biking on the streets and the commute on the subway could take as long as three hours. So what numb tots like him. Think about the new. Us president whose nickname after all is amtrak. Joe and who's appointed a millennial people judge as transportation secretary some are hopeful but ciampo is not impressed is actually millennial. He seems ancient. Let me look at this age. I'm fairly certain that he is to get on my phone and be like. Oh dang is he we google it and it turns out buddha. Judge is thirty nine so so i guess he counters but it doesn't think like a millennial no i don't i don't think so compel thinking like a millennial means not thinking like a politician like those politicians from previous generations who promised major upgrades to public transit systems and never delivered a peasley npr

Nobody's been back to our office building since the pandemic started everybody's been working remotely and it's been going splendidly. Allred says vermont was in her first choice but it had access to the outdoors and internet. I want to be able to work on some algorithms.

Mike allred and what she likes about the burlington area its proximity to nature in generally good broadband has made it ideal for remote working.

"Just be be very descriptive of what the an as I said impressionistic a little bit about what the what the writer saw. Yeah but then My counter argument to that Dave is that you don't want to gloss over if you're going to show that something is disorganized and that it's you know it feels like it's a group of. People acting instead of. Actually protesting or demonstrating. You absolutely want to show that I mean, this is a very important issue and if it's if it's If it's not being You know coordinated in in in a way that is tying a battery park and you know I mean I think that's one of the concerns that Burlington was. You know why why is this happening? Just is this just a protests that is designed to be a media event and You know there are a fair number of people who felt like that's what was happening. We know under the guise of the movement of black lives matter and. You know. I needed it needed to be portrayed. It may have been a little overwritten. But Editor. Glad, you know once again I guess I guess I would say that You, know. The expectation here of the the outrage of it though. Feels less about that. They were mad about how the story was written and it was less. It was more about that. Their message didn't get. conveyed. did they wanted more of their side of it out there and that? You know sorry folks newspapers are not mouthpieces for for one side of an issue or another. I mean they are they are available to provide facts and oftentimes You know they are available for commentary and letters to the editor for that dialogue to take place unfortunately for Burlington. And you know I hate to do this but I'm going to do it. The BURLINGTON free press just is not the paper of the can do that anymore in Burlington in its day probably could have really had control over its coverage of the story, but it is such a shadow of its former self that a newspaper like seven days, which is an independent newspaper. It is not. You know it does not necessarily. you know it's an alternative publication that's not supposed to always be. On the up and up, it can take that kind of liberty of going embedding and taking the writing to a bit of an extreme whereas. You know with my one of my reporters that totally be pretty irritated and I would I would take some of that out and certainly if if they've we're covering it for the AP, it would not read that way at all. That's true. I. Will Confess that. Lets. Listeners on the line. Dan from new. Good. Morning Dan Morning.

"The organizing and the level of excitement that the progressives were able to Bring to the SORTA organizing efforts before. Today's this week's town meeting vote when two more progressives Flip seats in the City Council. And you guys now have a seven five majority And I also they'll voter turnout but I'm wondering what is unique about Burlington. Sort of I mean I know you guys have a number of folks in the State House. I think seven in the House and a few Democrats progressives in the Senate but it seems like obviously Burlington has long been the sort of Heart of the Progressive Movement in Vermont. But how have you guys gone about sort of In these past four years since you've been the executive director building excitement again around the party. Yeah Burlington is certainly the heart. We do have people all over the state and we're very excited that David sacrament Sacramento. Who's a longtime progressive? Is now running for governor. I think that's you know that's shows it's a huge thing for our party and it shows how how far we've come even the past couple of years But Yeah I think About ten years ago When we lost the mayor's seat there was a real sense that maybe the Progressive Party wasn't going to be around for another ten years and Maybe you know we were down to just two seats and I just you know it. It was a commitment. There were a couple of individuals who really stood Stayed around through that those dark times and really kind of carry the torch forward and continued to like to engage with party members and build and over the last four five six years we really rebuilt at least in. Burlington the party from the ground up and we brought in dozens of like new young people. People who are recent grads or college students people who just moved here from other parts of the country are state And you know it's it's an exciting place because people are familiar with you know this. We'RE PRETTY NONTRADITIONAL PARTY RATES. So most people are in other parts of the state or the country They don't have any sense of like you can actually elect A non-democratic or non Republican Party candidate in Burlington. I think there is a strong sense and people are proud that you can actually do that here. and when we were able to show people that you know we actually had an alternative voice That was reasonable and also could win They were just so excited to get on board with us and go out and help us win and run with us as well. Yeah I mean I it strikes me that you know in the past couple of years in particular that you know on the national political stage you have a former Burlington mayor and Bernie Sanders Who Sort of Been a champion of the Progressive Movement for decades And then huge amount of sort of negative political feelings on the national level towards the current President Donald Trump. Obviously he's less popular in Vermont than anywhere else in the country. And I guess I'm wondering. How much do you draw the sort of success of getting young folks out And engage in Burlington on a pretty local level in these local races. You know how Progressive Controlling City Council. How much do you draw connection between that? I'm in the various forces at play in national politics. Yeah I think that's your genetic you know before I answer that. I do think it's really amazing if you think about this. The second Burlington progressives just one took control city council. I think in year. We're going to win back. The mayor's seat and have a progressive mayor. The person who's started the Burlington progressive movement is Bernie Sanders when he won Burlington nineteen eighty-one he could be president of the United States A fourteen year progressive from BURLINGTON. David Zuckerman is now. Running for governor is a very good shot of winning. Could be the so. We could control if you think about it. The Progressive Party started in Burlington. People who came out of that movement could control every level of government from federal state local on down. And that's what he's let's just like I can't even believe thinking about that as exciting But tanzer a question Yeah I think played a huge huge part I think Bernie. Sanders is tapping into something that has needed to be tapped into for a long time. And that's just really anger and angst over the lack of care over economic inequality issues and issues of climate change and health care reform. And he's showing people that we are. New World is possible that we can actually have these conversations around more much more aggressive almost more radical Ideas and it's actually has a broad mass appeal and what you saw in Burlington is I you know going into the election. I had no idea what was going to happen. I knew we had worked really hard but I I was frankly. I was worried that people were going to go and take a Democratic Party ballot. And then we're going to take a local town meeting day ballot and they were going to be like. Oh well. I'm just going to vote for the Democrat because I you know I voted in the Democratic primary. I was like really nervous that that was going to be a thing. And I think what Bernie has done is shown people that know like there are alternatives to have the democratic establishment status quo. That can actually win. And people know he was an independent in the Senate and Congress for many many years and I think they were excited to vote for us and excited that. Bofors something different. Now you've talked Oh sorry I was I was Gonna I was GonNa say I think people are also angry at the democratic establishment right now both in Burlington and nationally for the way they kind of tried to push down These new ideas and this movement You've mentioned a couple of times That sort of next for the progresses. The mayor's office You know a lot of these gains have happened under the administration of Memora- Weinberger who's Sort of firmly in the moderate camp as far as The Democrats Go he responded to the latest victories for the Progressives Party on Tuesday night saying that He did sort of agree that this was a referendum on his administration and in fact point into the fact that voters supported a number of the ballot initiatives that his administration had been involved in putting before voters That included Public Safety tax increase. That's going to fund the operation of a new ambulance and the new North End An increase in the city's Housing Trust Fund And a change. That will make local valid ballots available forty five days before the elections What what are your thoughts on that sort idea that the administration was involved in putting forward a number of initiatives that were broadly supported by the same people who voted into Progressive City councillors. Well so I I'd say either. Noncontroversial ballot initiatives. These were initiatives that were also supported by all the progressive counselors and all of our candidates. So I would say the idea that somehow this is like a win for the mayor and not for us is kind of ludicrous You know these are very. It's it's supporting the school budget. It's more money for the ambulance. It's a minor change to election law. I mean these are not big sweeping things if you WANNA look at One of the more controversial things. That mayor has pushed Go last year to the downtown improvement district which was a big priority of the mayor to privatize The church marketplace downtown and that was rejected by majority in Burlington So I think and then that was a major priority of the mayor and Democratic City Councillor. So yeah I think. The all the ballot initiatives did pass. But these were in You know big controversial issues. These were just pretty generic You know nuts and bolts kind of city government things that everyone's support Josh. I wanted to ask We've been talking about sort of what's going on with Mayor Marrone Weinberger And how sort of disaffection with his administration perhaps his driving some of the support for the press a party. A lot of the folks who have been Elected from the Progressive Party have been notably. Young I I don't think there's anyone older than thirty The past couple of years. These four new members of city council that have now given the party control And I believe some of them are barely over twenty and I guess I'm just wondering what your thoughts are on sort of the lack of experience Of these folks who are now largely in control of Burlington City Council and therefore the city. Yeah well and you know I just want one note. Is that two years ago. We did like. Brian. Pine who I believe is in his fifties Dwarf three so It's not like we're only letting people in their twenties and thirties We are running you know across the spectrum but I you know my response is that we should never underestimate young people. You look at someone like Alexandria Cossio. Cortez she got elected. I believe when she was twenty nine at the Congress to A district in Queens. And she's now league one of the leaders in the progressive movement. I don't think anyone would say that. She is doing a poor job or qualified. Some people might disagree with some people including some listeners of the show might have that view but yeah Certainly are certainly disagreement. Yeah exactly I think people are very excited about that. So I think if you can have a twenty nine year old Running for Congress and winning and doing well by by many many standards I. I don't think it's a stretch to say that a twenty two year old or a twenty nine year old just turned thirty year old can be a city councillor in a city of forty thousand people. I think that and you look at our candidates. Just because you're young doesn't mean you're inexperienced Even our our twenty year old Winter Jane Stromberg was on the Board of be Parag She represents largely a student ward. It's a war that was created A couple of years ago And they they literally drew drew a line around the University of Vermont and there. Yeah that it's it's probably ninety percent students that live there so I the whole idea. I think when they created that word was that students should have a representation. They represent A huge part of our city So it makes sense for them to have a voice and You know giving giving giving that whole idea as well. She's she's very qualified Annan's Rod Hightower who twenty. I just turned thirty on election day. Pretty Exciting Birthday prank that good birthday present. Yeah exactly Yeah so she. She has a ton of experience. I mean she graduated from Yale She. She has a graduate degree from Yale in the environment. I mean works for like a International Sustainable Development Organization Where they do sustainable development work all over the world so I think that expands. She's been on the Development Review Board In Burlington I think that experience is incredibly valuable for the city. So Yeah it's I I. I would not say that candidates we've been putting forward our experience. We've got a caller on the line. Fred from new very good morning morning. What kind of policies would you be in favor? All that when help reduce the cost of living or Joss. What kind of policies are you guys thinking about reduce cost of living? Well yeah so I guess in Burlington because that's what the show's about their number of issues that we've been we've been putting forward So we're GONNA have a conversation on bring control in different types of it and and our counselors have different ideas around around what that looks like. The cost of housing is really out of control and that city and big landlords have an incredible amount of power. They control everyday lives of their residents. So we're GONNA look at how we curb that power and how we You know give some power back to to regular working people. We're GONNA look at expanding public transit and in Burlington potentially even doing Um Fare. Free Transit so You don't have to actually pay to get on the bus on. That's that's been a big policy. It's something that's cities around. The world have done and it will directly impact in a positive way low income people and potentially allow more people to not not drive We're GONNA look at whether they should And there's an effort to attempt to require landlords to weatherize their homes That's that's a huge thing So you know just just a couple of things in Burlington every every day. Everything we do is geared towards how it's going to improve the lives of working class people That's that's our entire reason for existing and I would just say briefly on a state level There is you know there's a bunch of stuff we're working on like raising the minimum wage to a living one I was excited. That we just got The twelve fifty five but that that's nowhere near as far as we need to go in terms of the living wage There is also. We've we've talked for a number of years about getting rid of the property tax end exchanging it out for an income based Tax Progressive Tax. That would be really beneficial. I think two working people. Yeah Josh can I just go back real quick? We have two minutes left and I wanted to go back to your response to read their. Who Pose a great question. I thought About sort of how to reduce the cost of living and I think one of the big criticisms from the right of progressives and even from the center has been that a lot of the policies. They're being proposed. You know someone call them sort of pie in the sky too expensive. You talked about expanding public transit. You talked about weatherization. These are expensive things to do. How do you accomplish these things without hiking taxes?.

"From Radio Vermont. It's the Dave Graham show on. WD It's your show about the people places and the issues that matter the most most of you. Now here's your host Dave Graham Morning Vermont. It is Wednesday the eighteenth of December two thousand and nineteen. Just a couple of weeks. Left have to go in two thousand and one thousand nine hundred and and just a week to go before the Christmas holidays. So if you're shopping doesn't it better get busy. It's winding winding down here coming up fast. Whatever you WANNA call it and we have a good show lined up for your at least half show about ten o'clock or so we're going to go to some live? CBS News coverage out of Washington on deliberations in the House of Representatives where they are expected to debate and vote today on the impeachment of president. Donald J trump and Widely expected that. The House House Dem. The House Democratic majority will prevail and and actually impeach the president That will set up a procedure in which the trial will be held in the Senate and the Senate will determine if the president should be actually convicted and removed from office It's widely predicted that the Senate will not do that. Of course the Senate is under Republican Control Republican majority and it takes a two thirds majority sixty seven votes in the US Senate to actually to remove President from office office. So that's a high bar and all the predictions are that the Senate will not reach that bar so there we go we are are about to take the next big step here other stuff going on as well though we have a very very interesting twitter scandal going on up in Burlington. We're GONNA talk a little bit about that in our second half hour of the program today and But I I WANNA visit with Secretary of State Jim Condos the chief elections officer in the state of Vermont. He Yesterday issued a statement saying that the nominee mini or the Paper filing period. I guess it will get the official name of it from the secretary. Just a moment had closed for Giddy yourself on the ballot for the March Third Third Vermont Presidential Primary Remember. We have our presidential primary on the same day as town meeting dates first Tuesday in March and the list is now finalising up on the secretary of State's website website. And let's talk to the secretary about what's going on with all this secretary condos thanks for joining me this morning. You're welcome day. I'm right here. You are right there on the telephone from again from my office is located and of course you're resonant these days and So I appreciate you getting on the phone with me. This is mighty guy to you do so. It looks like we have Three Republican candidates and You know I I had led. I realize this majorly neglectful on my tort let Rocky de la Fuente slipped my mind. Somehow he's been there In the last couple of presidential presidential cycles I do. I saw that name. I said Yeah. Remember that guy from last time didn't make much of a ripple then we're not really expecting much with him this time are ah well. That's up to the voters. Decide not me and of course the other to there's a guy by the name of Donald J trump I think folks have heard of him and And Bill Oh well the former governor of Massachusetts is also on the on the Republican ballot. Bill Weld was actually a guest here on the day. Graham show several weeks ago and really enjoyed meeting with him in hearing hearing what he wanted to bring to this campaign of course he is not a big fan of the incumbent president at even though they're both Republicans Big Big daylight between the two of them and when you say it sounds like it from what I've seen on the news. Okay that's a that is a safe comet from our Secretary of State there folks and so tell me about this basically if anybody has dreams running for president in twenty twenty. It's too late now to get on the on Vermont Ballot Vermont Primary Ballot Right. Yes yes the. The deadline was five. PM on Monday and at that point in time they had to submit signatures of One thousand a minimum of one thousand registered voters here in Vermont plus a check for two thousand dollars And as as you can see we've got a few kid. It's for the Democratic Party. We had as you said the three on the on the Republican side. It looks like twelve on the democratic side The the ranks have swelled up toward twenty senior. Recall from earlier on but We we the the list is actually going to include. I'll read democracy so folks are aware of who actually is in and maybe if they have a name there a favorite that is not on here. They'll be aware of that as well. They won't have an opportunity to vote for the person on Marks the third. But let's see we'll start with I guess these are listed alphabetically starting with V. So you're with Joseph R Biden Michael Bloomberg Pete Brundige Tulsi Gabbard Amy Klobuchar. Devout Patrick Bernie Sanders. Mark Stewart. Tom Steyer Elizabeth is Warren Marianne Williamson and Andrew Yang Only one of those. I'd never heard before and I'm trying to figure out why I've never heard of Mark Stewart. But uh he he ran. I think in two thousand sixteen as well he was from he's from Connecticut and He had been a candidate eh before. You also didn't mention because it's not listed yet but Julian Castro He has been given supplemental time per statute He fell about nine registered. Voters the voters on the petition. We have two one. We have to confirm that there. Registered voters to we have to confirm that we can read either the printed or the written name and He fell short by about nine nine people so he according to statute he has ten. He'd been granted ten additional days to get the remaining nine signatures his the office when we notified them yesterday said that they would have it to us in the next day or two okay now so Ten initial days is that is that business his days or is that Calendar days. I don't have the statute in front of me but I would think it would be ten calendar days okay so we probably December twenty twenty six since the deadline was the sixteenth at five pm so that would be. Maybe it'll be out knocking on doors on Christmas Day down bodily people home yeah they. That's true yep no place like home for the holidays even if cameras are knocking on your door so secondary reconnaissance to talk to me a little bit about. I'm always confused about how primaries actually sort of you know what they're what they're underpinnings are. Because I hear on on one hand they are sort of a function of the political parties. They are organized by political parties to a large extent. But here is the secretary of State's office very public Tax Payer funded entity put off this list and closing it off in organizing the declaring the date and doing all this official stuff towing sort this out for us. So it's it's a little bit of all of that and so the the state actually oversees and manages the primary elections. And you're right when you said that the it's a political party function essentially a a Primary is a nominating process for the political parties. So so the Republican the in the presidential. You have the Republican Party and the Democratic Party and the statewide primary for the general election. You have The Progressives the Republicans and the Democrats. That's the August primary. Excuse me so What happens is is that okay for so on on election day or if you're voting early by or by absentee you'll be you'll be asked which primary ballot for the presidential primary? You'll be asked which ballot you want the Republican ballot or the democratic ballot and That actually is recorded as to whether you took the Republican or the Democratic One. That's the only time that we record any semblance of party affiliation. And it's not necessarily a party affiliation because there will be Democrats will vote in the Republican primary and they'll be Republicans vote in the Democratic Democratic primary. You just have to designate. which which primary ballot you want in the general election? which is for governor Senator US House in and legislature which occurs in in August and that primary you were given one ballot free free each of the three major parties and you can only fill out one of those and then you discard the other two. Nobody knows which ballot you filled Out and nobody knows what value feel that. So there's no way anybody can check on that and find out whether you went into your local polling place and chose the Republican or the democratic ballot. Is that right. That's for the general election statewide primary August. The presidential is public public knowledge. That is recorded and you. Will you pick either a Republican ballot or a democratic ballot. You're not giving both okay and anybody you can come in and and find out which one you picked right. That is true. Yeah and always made me kind of nervous as a reporter because obviously there are people out there who want to say you know. See I told hold you dave. Grandma's a conservative or see. I told you day grandmas a liberal and so I we we don't we wouldn't. We wouldn't do that for one person. So someone that someone would get the The the whole voter file for that But but Dave I think it's also important to understand. Vermont is not a party registration state so so you don't register as a Democrat or Republican and just because you pull the Republican ballot for president does not mean you are a Republican what it means means is you chose that particular ballot for that particular primary now. I think what happens is overtime. If all of a sudden they looked and they said said. Oh Dave Graham borders the requests the Republican ballot each time. There's a presidential primary then. There's an indication that you're going to lean to the all right So that's kind of how it works. It was this was a negotiated settlement way before my time it was back in around. Nineteen Eighty When this was done between the legislature the governor the and the parties and that included the national parties? And how this this Presidential residencial primary would would operate because we are not a party registration state. Yeah Yeah of course. There's always they're always. They're always a few you people around the state who want to want to be checking up on reporter's like this I don't have any anybody with a specifically taken that that staff but there's many many people are used to find occasionally folks who wanted to inquire as to my alleged political leanings when I was a reporter and so on and Always taught me that. This'll be one one indicator and you're right. It wouldn't in one instance of an election. It could be. Maybe maybe the individual person is voting putting in a given parties primarily because here she wants to cause mischief and wants to vote for the real dark horse candidate. Who has you know? And there's no chance that the that the the say the incumbent office holder will be defeated. But you want US show that the incoming offs colder is maybe weaker than was perceived. Or something I don't know you know so all sorts of motivation on the same hand when you have for instance you have It looks like we're going to have thirteen candidates for for the Democratic presidential primary If if you use your vote to cast a protest vote in the in the Republican primary you're also taking away the ability to vote for someone in the Democratic primary so there's a lot of things that have to be considered when that happens and I. I don't know that that is really something that happens in a very serious way. I I just don't think it does. I tend to agree with you. I mean we'd be it. It'd be really a kind of a silly exercise in this upcoming presidential primary just one example. And maybe you know really good example the problem. But you're right I mean essentially anybody's leaning Democrat These days would I'm sure have a preference between let's say Pge Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren or whatever correct and and and they might And and then the question is you know I really going over there to the Republican side..
