"From golden this so some. You've been speaking regularly to boone while he's in federal custody awaiting possible deportation. But let's just go back. How did he and his family come to america. In the first place so boon was born in one thousand nine hundred one and this is the battlefield in las family of commute to send an ethnic minority that escaped the country after the vietnam war. These are government troops supported and financed by the united states fighting and losing ground to communist troops. Many of them from north vietnam fought alongside the us in the war and have been historically persecuted. Problems didn't end when the americans pulled out fearing a crackdown by laos communist government forces many fled the country and so when he was four years old. His family left for a refugee camp in thailand. And after that ended up escaping and fleeing to the united states where they resettled in northern california in a city called san leandro in the bay area near san francisco. What was his childhood like in california. He a really challenging childhood. Which is a common story of southeast. Asian refugees here in california whose family was very poor and didn't speak english and so when he first came here he talked a lot about just as fear of being in america. It was such a foreign place to him. I see no personal lives and blonde hair. Yup you know he talked to me about just being so shocked to see other children with blonde hair and blue eyes and going to he just felt so out of place and time rebounding lunch Wearing like us those and now scary. He talked a lot about just the relentless believing that he faced as a young kid he really struggled and his family had a difficult time adjusting to the new life. Here in california. How did he get into trouble with the police. So he ended up getting involved with gang activity which is also a common experience of southeast asian refugees who experienced difficult childhoods around hold myself. I told them about the people. Give us going on at school. That's when they comfort me told me. Don't worry mine you leave your protective. And they won't cheese you Wanting and became a routine. I'm walking around. And then when he was sixteen years old he was riding in a car with friends and he and a group of them ended up shooting out of vehicle at someone running toward them frayed. It was a member of a rival gang. Two people were shot and one passed away. He was quickly arrested after that and he felt like his life is basically over at that. Point is potentially facing life in prison my mom levy a me and ultimately his mother begged him to just take a plea deal for your only son. I want to you by waiting to be here for you matter what we love you so it just please take the deal and so he accepted twenty eight years in prison for a slew very serious charges including degree attempted murder. I mean a plea deal for twenty eight years for a crime. He committed as a teenager effect that have on his family. Yeah he was prosecuted as an adult which is very common at that time especially in continues to happen today and it just shattered his family. It was absolutely devastating for his parents and his younger sister. He told me that one of the hardest parts of being incarcerated was that he always thought it was his to look out for his younger sister to be there for her and when he was taken away he felt like he had led the whole family. Down was prison like for being so he was incarcerated since he was a teenager essentially and he spent a lot of time really working on himself bettering himself trying to take classes. He got a degree. While he was imprisoned he enrolled in self help programs. He worked really hard to be a better person and to stay in touch with his family. His family visited him a lot and he was able to do his best to maintain those relationships despite being separated for so long he finally got an opportunity to really do something that was transformative towards the end of his sentence this year when he was able to actually work outside of the prison as part of a firefighting and carson crew. What is that would like for prisoners. So california depends on incarcerated people to battle. it's increasingly devastating wildfires. The program actually dates back to world war two when there is a labor shortage and they started relying on inmate fire crews the inmate crews represented about twenty to thirty percent of the firefighting labor force. That the state depends on each year. They're putting out blazes there saving homes. They're saving lives and for the folks who are incarcerated doing this work very very low wages just a few dollars a one dollar an hour when they're on the frontlines of active fires. It's very very grueling. Work folks who get this opportunity who are incarcerated loved the opportunity because it gives them a chance to be outside of prison. Walls and boone told me that it meant so much to him and it was flexible trousers being done a whole life. There's no wires guard gun the rifle. I mean we had a river running to lunch. You know like while. I've got a chance to Down to reverse the coldness ever done. I have touched for a twenty plus years house free. You really loved the opportunities to give back and help people and do something that felt like he was making a difference. We took on this work close to the end of his sentence because he was due for release in october. What did he plan to do when he got out. You know he has really simple dreams about coming home.

"They had people given hydroxy caloric when the head different stages in the virus and they. came out and said, it greatly increases person's chances of surviving covert by giving them, Hydroxy Clarkson, and a couple of other things almost immediately just total controversy accusations things were taken down from social media and finally a couple of the doctors from the study just threw up their hands and said, forget it forget. I'm tired of this. I'm not GonNa talk about hydroxy clerk win anymore, but it's Still out there, and it's still so far as I can tell I mean I'm not a physician, but it still is helpful if you come down with this disease almost immediately, you need to approach a doctor and say, this is what I want. What do you think Hydroxy Corcoran is through Maya Sen over the counter zinc maybe some vitamin D three and people get through this so. That's the advice I gave my sister and I told her of course, ask your doctor but one new bit of information I was able to find, and that is this the continent of Africa always has had a malaria problem and what's the drug out there that has helped malaria. Well, it's chloroquine and for the last five decades hydroxy chloroquine. So from what I've heard the continent of Africa. You can get hydroxy chloroquine a Lotta Times just over the counter. You don't need a prescription it's just like handed out. It's for malaria, but also win covid comes through. It also helps a person survive the corona virus. So there was an article and all post a link to it where the whole continent of Africa has a much lower mortality rate for covert and of course, everybody's lining up to take credit. You know national health ministers here and they're saying, well, it's because I decided to do this and. We decided this would be our approach whenever and and the article was pretty clear that it did not want to mention hydroxy chloroquine but I'm sorry with all due respect to those health ministers in the continent of Africa it's gotTa. Be Hydroxy chloroquine because that drug is they're already and has been for a long time for malaria, and now it also has been found to help Cova. So when Cova comes through and people are still taking hydroxy clerk when they get through the covert and that's why the mortality rate is a lot lower in Africa. I also wanted to point out there's that website to frontline doctors I believe it is. And it has a world wide map of where in the world the worst mortality rates are from covid and basically it's North America. It's Europe almost all of Europe and south. Africa. Basically those areas are the highest mortality rates then there's also a map where is it most restricted to get hydroxy chloroquine? Well north. America Canada Europe and South Africa. It doesn't take a genius to put two and two together to figure that this is a cheap drug that's been around forever. I took it a couple of years ago when I traveled to the Far East and I was worried about malaria, I had some weird nightmares but I didn't have any of the side effects. All we hear about now..

"So I've heard enough it's real and when I wanted to say is you know it's one thing for a sitting president to be given certain jobs and for those jobs not to workout but yet the family members get richer and richer while all this is going on that's one thing and people see that and they just get suspicious something's going on. But with this hard drive and the texts and the emails. I mean forget about hundred by smoking crack and having sex with underage kids. That's his problem, and he's probably going to face his own criminal charges. I'm sure. But here's the thing when we have a sitting vice president who has been assigned various jobs and various foreign assignments and he goes to some foreign country and comes back into empty-handed, and then we find out from emails later that Oh, his son or brother or inlaws or whoever got a whole bunch of money all of a sudden from that country, and we find out that card of that money that the family member got winds up in Joe Biden's bank account, and that's another thing with all this. Bank account records are easily subpoenaed. Easily I mean there's not many pieces of the puzzle that are left empty after this and like I said, financial records with banks, banks get audited all the time. So it's not like the old days when records just get lost or something I, mean bank records still exist and they're easily gotten by subpoena so. Many pieces to the puzzle that are now missing anyway what I'm leading up to is this I mean win or lose I. Don't see how criminal charges will not be filed against Joe Biden some day. Is he going to jail I don't know but I don't see how he can escape criminal charges someday. Now that's another reason to vote against him for president because if he's elected president, you know just like Spiro Agnew some criminal activity involving kickbacks followed him from one job to the next. You know Spiro Agnew had some kickbacks on construction projects that he was involved in when he was governor of Maryland and then he Became Nixon's first vice president. Then it all came to light. This is worse than that. This is not just construction projects. This is United States foreign policy getting modified or changed, or hamstrung strong or something, and then a family member getting wealthy, and then we find out from these emails that that family member gave some of that money to the vice president I don't know I'm just looking over just from what I've heard. Wire fraud filing false tax returns securities laws have been violated when Hunter Biden owns ten percent of a company for the Big Man Meaning His dad and I'm sure he never declared that it with anybody. You know that's another problem, and of course, the main thing is bribery. When a sitting vice president is assigned a job where he comes back empty-handed but family members wind up getting way over paying job or some kind of contribution that we now know winds up in the. Hands of the vice president.

"We're going to talk about the election. Big Primary Super Tuesday Carmen and California. But it wasn't super for a lot of people Some candidates got targeted with a new campaign loophole. And that's what we're going to talk about this week. The fifty thousand dollars threshold for major donor to be listed on an advertisement so good example is a friend of ours in Orange County was running for local supervisors race Ashley Aitken. Who's a tremendous consumer attorney and a mom and she was a federal prosecutor who actually prosecuted a sexual offenders and sexual predators in at the last minute of a mailing came and it was from Californians for something like safe streets and it said that she actually wrote a letter to judge leading seeking a reduced sentence for For a rapist and support the judge who sought seeks reduced sentence for a rapist and that she supported rapists totally false completely. False last minute. Male didn't say who paid for the AD AD paid for by development interests seeking to elect her opponent who is now ahead in the polls while those votes are being counted. And we've seen this all across the state and state wide races as well. You know. Fifty thousand dollars is a lot of money but the people who gave to this committee gave forty nine thousand dollars so they didn't have to be listed on this last minute attack mailer. We'll see if that backfires on the current county supervisor who didn't send the male but it was the beneficiary of the attack at right now. He's ahead in the polls but could change. What's happening with this around the State Carmen? What why did the disclosure rules change? And what is this loophole exactly? Well it's it's a phenomenon that Californians are probably very familiar with. They see a campaign ad and it's paid for by Californians for Apple Pie in puppies well. Lawmakers and especially good government advocates have pushed for greater disclosure of the people behind this advertising. And recently we had a big victory legislation was passed that required better disclosure on campaign ads. That was supposed to get rid of the obscure. Californians for puppies Californians for better jobs by requiring the top three donors to any campaign ad be disclosed in disclosed in the mail or at the advertising but the special interest pushed through a loophole which set the dollar limit of that disclosure at fifty thousand dollars. So as you said Jamie. Everybody is giving just under that limit. So they don't have to disclose the sponsors of campaign ads and we saw this to great effect in other Statewide races or races across the State and Senate district says well we had a coalition of HMO's malpractice insurance companies and physicians. Who have been protecting a forty five year. Old Law that limits access to justice for patients who have been injured by medical negligence. This is the organization's only reason for existence. It's called Californians Allied for patient protection and we saw to hit meal to hit mailers against two different Senate candidates who refused to take that organizations pledge. Go Out in the last few days of the Senate campaigns will those ads did not disclose that. One of the state's biggest. Hmo's medical malpractice insurance companies and the physician lobby were behind the advertising because they all gave forty nine thousand dollars right under the disclosure limit. So basically we have the legislature to thank for screwing this up like so many things saying is a well intention change. But we've got this fifty thousand limit and it happened a couple of other places to the the interesting thing about the California's alive for patient. Protection is the CAP. Group is our enemy. Our opponent on the ballot measure called the fairness for injured patients. Act which is going to lift if we get a qualified on the ballot in November. The forty five year old cap in case of severe injury or death and the fact is the way cap has maintained control over the legislature is by flexing their muscle and these legislative races in less than obvious ways about who their members are. Because if that ad was paid for by Kaiser Permanent Day might not hit so well or paid for by nor cal. Medical Malpractice Insurance Company might not hit so well. But when you you don't know and you see it last minute it's ways you the one of the people attacked under that was woman named Sally Lieber and she came forward and said look. They made me. They wanted me to take literally an oath that I would never change this lawn. I don't take an oath to do anything. But her opponent in the democratic side apparently took the oath according to Labor so that is how they've maintained control in the capital to limit the rights of medical negligence victims by forcing legislators to either take an oath or to get hit with last minute mailers and their money. That's Kinda like in the Godfather. Were you know Brooke Luca Rachi puts a gun to your head and said either your your name or your blood will be on that contract your your name or your brains will be on that contract so I I see this. As just thug style in the legislature should respond in kind. What do you think? Do you think we're going to see a legislative response out of Sacramento. Well like you said. This is the legislatures fault sandbagging legislation that a few good intention. Lawmakers put forward It was special interests strong arming lawmakers into setting this contribution limit which didn't exist in the original legislation. The original legislation said the top. Three donors of any amount must be disclosed. So I know that there's a lot of clean money activists out there. They'll be joining the supporters of this legislation but hard to tell if the special interest will win the day again on the disclose act something like a leadership call. This is something that The governor should ask for this is something that Toni Atkins the center. Tamminen Anthony Renton the speaker. The assess where because I don't think anyone foresaw this except the people who wrote that provision at the time and now the legislature was duped and they should say. Fool me once okay. That's your fault. Shame shame on you. Shame on you and this claim on me all this all stems from the fact that we cannot ban corporate control of political races because the CA- the Supreme Court of the United States has said money is speech and corporations are people and a little plug citizens united case said that and the author of this is the United States as our trump raw deal playing card deck. You can get for twenty dollars. Contribution to our affiliate consumer watchdog campaign at Trump's raw deal dot com. I'M A card dealer. Now that's what I am but Nichols at trump's cronies go deep that you get that deck and you'll you'll see the face of of the Plaintiff in that decision who went to work for the trump administration trump campaign and the administration and in the end result of that legislation or that decision by the Supreme Court pushed by the trump crony. Is that Californians cannot ban corporate money in politics but we can at least for some to say who they are and why they care these advertisements that ran sponsored by Californians for patient protection head. No hint that they were about interests that. Hmo's care about that medical malpractice insurance companies. My care about voters had no idea that these people were being hit because they wanted to protect patient's name actually reflect what the viewpoint of the sponsors of career so paid for by medical providers who don't want to be sued when they cut off your leg or kill you. I think that should be the real name of the Committee we should have. We should have someone who determines what the real name of these interests are because that is the whole existence of this committee which challenge lawmaker listening to the podcast now to take up that challenge to introduce the bill that says your real interest has to be in the name of the committing. Because there's one for instance the hope and Heritage Committee sponsored by the California for jobs and a strong economy in support of Susan Sylvia. Rubia there's a Susan Rubio her sisters in the legislature but this is Sylvia Rubio for state assembly. Does that sound like that's paid for by the oil industry? That doesn't sound like it's paid for hope and heritage. I mean if it was for you know paid for by California oil companies who won a drill and FRAC your backyard. It might sound a whole lot more authentic at least but it probably won't do the trick at people wouldn't pay attention to by the way Not Clear that that ad by the oil industry that advertising which was again not fully disclosed that the donor of had an effect because Rubio's behind in the polls and the oil industry played heavily in this election. And it's not clear that they got anything There was a headline from politico. Pro The other day that The oil industry was learning. Bloomberg's lesson that you can't buy love I don't know. I think that the Doctor Lobby had the same headline in politico pro earlier this month when there was a story about the fact that doctors are losing on the fight against allowing nurse practitioners to provide some care to Californians without a doctor hovering over their head all the time and so there is another move by thing happened with the oil industry. They're seeing it hurt in the polls it's happening with the doctors where they're the doctors lobby not your average physician but the doctors lobby who's not just a guaranteed vote for the public. And why do we think that they're hiding their name again? The interest of that committee would be doctors. Who Don't want to replace by really well skilled nurses I mean so. I think that we were on to something. We're going to bring that idea the legislature a quick last minute Count we are now over seven hundred thousand signatures for the fairness for injured patients. Act So keep rolling along the power of the people again in the hands of voters November. The idea that the legislature can't forever be under locking key by big interest groups that have the money to play hard and dirty and The people will make a decision on that ballot measure. Should it qualify?

"Continued support of this show squarespace, make your next move next website. It's time we have to talk about bagels. Another is what people tune in for. So the I o. s. twelve point, one beta and the the next version of Unix emoji set includes bagel. We talked about it a while back. An apple has redesigned it. So the twelve one beta has a new design of this. There's a link to some Jeremy Burs tweets, and a blog post Jeremy has the best job on the planet. He thought he's, he is on the ground. I don't know if I would want to have been Jeremy. We're gonna get into that. So we should talk about the Begley mode yourself. We should lay the scene. So the bagel emoji used to just be a bagel, just sliced in half. So you could see the bread. It isn't a thing that would say. Used to be. I'm just want to say it never got released other than in the bay. Yeah, yeah, it was there for select people, but there's nothing home. The bagels have just plain as plain as a plane. Bagel can be sliced in half or to offset you could see what it was, but people thought that that was not descriptive enough or whatever. And so now the bagel is more textured. I think it looks faker than the previous one looks kind of like a bagel out of an attendee, sixty four game somehow it looks like an old XBox. Took a photo of a bagel and into it it is fought. It's like they decided they would make the most detailed emoji that has ever existed as a way to try and stop. People complain. Sometimes that works at the fried egg emoji is one of my favorites, like a black Skillet with a fried egg in it, and it looks super realistic, but it's perfect. This has gone too far. This is to real. It's still cut open and sort of the top sort of knocked off a little bit. And you can see what I would say as a pretty healthy dose of cream cheese spread on this. Someone went to town on this thing, but not everyone is happy and I don't eat bagels or cream cheese. So to someone explain to me why people are upset, and then I think Federico you have some thoughts on this late at this point. I can't explain why people are upset, but but but people mostly on in New York or on or around the east coast still. Unhappy with the representation of we need to be careful because we're going to New York next week and we want to be run out of town. So I was say, Neal, bagels, one of my very favorite things in the entire world like love, Neil bagels, like high enjoy pizza in New York. It's very good. I like pizza in New York love. So I'm very excited to go back to New York because I'm going to eat my way through. I loved the food in New York, but I, I, honestly, at this point personally, I can't see what's wrong with this anymore. I mean the first one I could look at it and still, no, it was a bagel though. It did look a little bit more like a Donut, but now I look at it and I'm like, yeah. Okay. You took a photo bagel. Yeah. So you know, I I know that people are still unhappy. I can't tell you why. I don't think any of us. Adequately bagel knowledge to to tell you what's yet? This isn't the accidental bagel podcast. Let's nobody else ABP my favorite show. I can't speak for bagels specifically. I don't. New york. I wanna talk you gotta give me five minutes to to talk. Question this bigger top. This bigger topic of shoot we lab in this case, apple or any company based in California dictate the style of and the represented the visual visual representation of food emoji based on their own American and specifically Californian idea of that food. And this is like, if you look in the show notes, there's a link to my tweet that actually gained a bit of traction..
