"She's not. She's a Kennedy by marriage. She's running for a house seat. And so there still could be a chance that one of them could get in there. But I thought that was fascinating because he was marketed as the second coming. Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg, son. No, they're grooming him. To be the next big Kennedy family leader. So watch out for that there are he's already in politics and they already are doing this. I cannot stand that I cannot stand that politics isn't a family business. It is not an industry. I cannot stand this. Just like punditry isn't a family business polemic. Start a family business. If if you have kids if you're in it, and you have kids that show an interest in their very involved in their genuinely interested, that's fine. We pry purposefully did everything I could to push my oldest son off of it. He's like, very he loves debate. He loves following the issues. He's very into it, he Grete, But I want to make it hard for him because I think it's too easy for people to get involved in. And that's why you have a lot of people. That's a lot of stupid stuff in there in it For the wrong reasons, you get grifters and everything else in and I can't stand it. That's what they're doing with this. They treat these seats like it's like an inheritance. Back in the day and the days of yore. It was actually a hardship. When providing health insurance and things like this for these people. It was like to attract people to take thes seats. It was like jury duty. That's how it was originally envisioned. It was like jury duty. These were people who were farmers and business owners, and they really didn't want to do this. But they had to And then they made it really, really easy for people to stay in the seat and just not actually work. Elected office is just a more romanticized version of welfare except They lie about it. At least people who take entitlements know what they're doing, and they're honest about it. Politicians are Politicians are welfare babies. Get mad at me for saying it. They are These are people who they treat these seats. All of them both parties to they treat these seats like they are that they're entitled. They have Children. They raise them up to expect to get PCT, too, and to work in politics like it's the family industry. You realize that smart doesn't always hit every single generation. Go back and look in history. Who was it wasn't like the second Piero de Medici who was like the dumb one. He was all about self, and he wasn't He wasn't really raised up to be and ambitious and and smart with management at all of this stuff, And here you have, like generations of this family that built this and this one dude ruins almost ruins it all or like the last one guest on the last one who ended up being a drunkard and squandered away his wealth. I mean, it takes one of them. Right, one member of the family one generation to screw it all up. Which is and they know this that they build in protections for themselves. Polyp politicians and elected office. Now. If you go when you serve and you do it, and then you get out, you're done. That's fine. But the people who like stay there forever, even long past their usefulness. I always measured by long past their usefulness. It's it's it's a form of his welfare. And I don't believe I am almost I get furious. Talking about? Ah, Casting and I can't think of a phrase for it term limits. I get mad. I'm sorry. I genuinely mean it. You're going to disagree with me on term limits. I think it's the stupidest thing ever proposed. I hear whenever I hear term limits, I hear people volunteering to give more of their sovereignty away to the government. Your term limit is your vote. It's your vote. And because people can't won't get out and vote and and what? You're just gonna go ahead and give that to the government, too. All that. I know people who talk about term limits. I never seen them out Canvassing..

U.S. Navy Ponders An Ambitious Fleet Makeover Amid Tight Budget

"President Trump's administration is expected to unveil a budget plan today under a deal with Congress last year. Defense spending would rise only slightly which leaves leaves the United States Navy a little bit caught between a tight budget and a president who would like things to be a lot bigger Jay price of our member station W. UNC reports the scene at the famous shipyard. Newport News Virginia was a naval classic United States ship John F. Kennedy God bless this this shed and all who sail in her a few months back. Caroline Kennedy Chris and ship in honor of her late father. These kinds kinds of ceremonies are becoming more frequent after decades of decline. The Navy's fleet is on the rise. This year is expected to top three hundred warships. And it's aiming for a much larger number that fifty five ship goals more than a goal. It's in the law. He was in the authorization bill several years ago and was date stated goal of the president when he ran for election in two thousand sixteen. That's Thomas Mode. Leave the acting. Secretary of the Navy warships can come with jaw-dropping Christ tags the eleven hundred foot long one hundred thousand tonne Kennedy for example costs more than thirteen billion dollars and for Moseley paying for a lot more ships. It's a challenge. That's what we're trying to figure out right now but when you look at the size of the fleet right now where it was four years ago we were at two hundred seventy five ships so getting into a fleet of three fifty five is going to require a significantly higher top line. That's a thirty percent increase in the size of the fleet. But I don't think it's reasonable for us to ask for thirty percent more top line. It's just not enough money to go around and defense to be able to fund. That Moodley says he's confident. The navy can get there but says it will have to get some additional channel funding and chew ships that cost less however it decides to reach three hundred and fifty five. There's one especially influential person who wants it to camping. Our Navy is now the smaller suspend since believe it or not World War One. Don't worry GonNa soon be the largest. It's been that was president. President trump back in two thousand seventeen on his own visit to Newport News. The navy's goal for fleet size had been more modest mark. Canton is with the Center for strategic not GIC and International Studies. The navy's previous target had been three hundred h ships but after trump won the election. They couldn't have target. That was below at uh. Now president-elect was recommending so the Navy did a quick for structure analysis and came up with three hundred fifty five ships can't see in once led the Office of Management and Budget Division that focused on the defense budget and acquisitions. He says it's unclear. Exactly how large the fleet really should be. I think because a strong argument that the navy needs to be larger if the United States wants to execute the strategy that it has pursued since the late Obama administration ration- and then into the trump administration that is a global superpower that is engaged in Europe in the Middle East and in the Pacific. Nick also that is going to engage in a long-term competition with Russia and China. Doing those two things takes all large navy now whether that needs to be three hundred fifty five ships or not. There isn't a lot of analysis there. mody though is focused on that three hundred and fifty five five number and that would mean integrating into that fleet some ships that cost less require fewer people to man them and also helped with our overall all strategy of having distributed maritime operations with more ships out during the fleet. He says the navy can not only reach three hundred fifty five but do it ahead of schedule Joel. And without even counting the drone ships. The navy is aggressively

The world has never been more convenient. What is that doing to us?

"As it sounds like the invention of canned beans. We've gone to canned goods than we invented washing machine. Everything we have done has been about making our lives easier that in and of itself is not about thing. It's very good thing but with a i technology the options now are making our choices the matter of lifting a finger instead of actually physically washing the walking to a washing machine gene and doing the actual labor. We're not doing labor anymore. We're not doing anything that requires some effort some thinking some inconvenience everything we're choosing and everything that's being offered to us is about making life easier simpler and frankly less rewarding. Is there a threshold somewhere that we crossed because to your point. I don't think anybody would argue that. The invention of the dishwasher or washing machine was a bad thing but there's it's gotta be a line somewhere where it goes from things that are freeing us up to make the most of our time to things that are actively discouraging us from interacting interacting with the world. Will i think if you think about it think about the technology that is available when you take something as basic as social media area and how pervasive it is it appalls me when i'm walking home from work and i see pretty much i would say ninety five percent of the people walking with their face into their their phones not looking at anybody on the street not bothering to see which direction they're going. They just kind of do it like they're a bunch of drones walking down the sidewalk and even that it's just we are so programmed to be osman's. Almost it's now. I think that's the threshold and it's only people that are a little bit alarmed by the fact that menial chores banality l'idee things like that are actually something to embrace instead of something to shun. They're the ones that i think are going to kind of lead a counter revolution and take back some of the the more boring stuff of their life and find satisfaction in it that gets at what i was going to ask you next 'cause i can't and i hope i'm i hope i'm only speaking for myself but i don't think that i am i can't find satisfaction in walking four blocks to pick up my food when it could just be brought brought to me or to use your example. I don't find any satisfaction in assembling furniture like i will pay just moved. I will pay whatever it costs to not do that and i don't know when my brain switched and maybe it was just because it became an option not to have to yeah i get your point but do you find satisfaction picking up your phone and ordering something online like. Does it make you happy to have food delivered to your doorstep. Stop instead of taking the time the thought and the preparation in buying your groceries actually spending the time to prepare para dish that you've thought about and put care into. I don't know if you've kids or if you have a family but do you actually get satisfaction out of feeding your kids is giving them a great meal hearing them say dad while that was a great dinner. Thank you so much. I would love to hear say that for the record but she's not going to know no. I i do find that when you go to the market and buy your vegetables in the morning and spend the afternoon cooking you take more time with your food food to taste it to experience it. <hes> and you want the people around you to figure out the word enjoy it. Yes yeah you feel much better about it right and and i guess what fascinated me about your piece is trying to figure out what that is actually doing to us the process of not engaging like it's one thing to say like garden even notice that i i ordered my and i ate it but do we know what that is doing to us. What toll that takes well. I think i interviewed i. I think she's in the story. Her name was making caselli and she's a stand up comedian in toronto and i absolutely loved what she said so she he told me how her and her partner east love getting up in the morning they'd have piece of paper sitting on their counter instead of itemize list plugged into their phone and they would have things to do like pick up the dry cleaning <hes> maybe go by some fresh flowers at the market things like <hes> they would walk around. They would say hi to their neighbors. They would maybe stop for lunch may be discovering new cafe where they had a really great cup of coffee and instead she said that all the do now is basically sit it or lay in bed with their phones and take off the boxes by ordering things that they might need and they don't do that kind dove lisi meandering wandering around the neighborhood where they <hes> actually meet people face to face and have a conversation sation. She just finds that her saturdays in her sundays are way more dull and they're not as fulfiling how do we we start to convince ourselves to do these things. You mentioned that there. Someone's gotta start a mini revolution about reclaiming the pleasure in everyday activities activities. Where does that begin. I think i think really if you look around. You're already see it beginning <hes> the artisan community <hes> when it comes to food food farm-to-table cuisine. There's a big push. There's a lot of people that are actually really making an effort now to <hes> get to local the markets and do that kind of shopping support the local <hes> farmers. There's there's a there's a growing swell swell of individuals who care about the people that actually put in time sweat tears into making products or produce or whatever it is that they are giving to us. They're taking the time to say okay. I'm gonna make an effort to come to you and those kinds of businesses are actually flourishing. <hes> this one lady after i wrote the p. she she sent me an email and it was really thoughtful and she said the one thing that you didn't think about was how how all of these click bait options. I e anything you can click on to get delivered to you immediately. She said they're destroying. Small towns sounds all the tiny retailers mom and pop shops that you stu subsist because of people being loyal to them coming to them. They're starting to disappear now. It's not just because of convenience per se. It's also because of big box retailers ars but that's an earlier form of convenience. You know with the big box. Go there do everything all in one swoop. That was just another incarnation nation of the you know the rollout of convenience that has been chugging along for the last hundred years that god knows what level it will get to with with technology. Do we have any idea how quickly the click an order and get it off. The internet economy is growing well well. I think if you consider just the <hes> amount of purchases that are done on the web so in the worldwide for instance stints almost two point nine trillion dollars was purchased last year in canada alone were expected double what we did in two thousand sixteen and by this year will have spend forty billion dollars online so is growing exponentially and with services like amazon ebay. All of those different ones will even them more conventional couriers like u._p._s. and fedex etcetera. They're all trying to find a way to go to zero emissions and make things a little bit more environmental friendly in my piece. I didn't wanna hammer on about the environmental impact talked. All the easy choices were making but there's absolutely no question that everything that we're doing when we're relying more on airplanes since on vans to bring us things. All these things are taking a toll on the environment just this morning. I was reading the paper and there's a new book out by tatiana schlossberg. That's caroline kennedy's a daughter who's was a science reporter for the new york times and she's just written a book about <hes> this very phenomenon and she calls the inconspicuous consumption and it's about the environmental impact that you don't know oh you have and i have not read it but i'm going to and it what makes me happy. What makes me feel better is that all of these things are starting to be written. People are starting to think about all of this stuff in a much more concerted and wholesome way. I guess who do you you think or where do you think i guess we first documented how far we'd come in the race for convenience and how much could cost us. When did we start to realize just how far we were going. I don't think we've realized that yet <hes>. I don't think that most people even even give it. A second thought. I was shocked at the response at the story. I wrote about convenience had what was it was overwhelming. It was bizarre really really because it was a topic that nobody has thought about that said there are some there are people who are far more learned learning than i am who are starting to write <hes> fascinating essays in places like the new york times and the atlantic all these publications that are starting according to examine the tyranny of convenience and how we need to start thinking about the choices we make instead of always opting for something that is almost a mindless thing to do. We should maybe start making our lives a little bit more difficult and by that i mean maybe we should not order from ubereats and maybe we should actually walk two blocks and go to the grocery store and maybe we should take an hour and make a meal for our family while maybe they stand around and actually talk to you and you have a conversation with your child about her day her homework. I'm sure you do that anyway. But wouldn't it be nice if she just kind of hung out with you while you showed her how to make a dish that otherwise she she would never know how to make because you just ordered in one of the things that stopped me and my tracks from your piece the same way you've gotten that response is i think we've talked about all the individual aspects of what you describe on this podcast. We've certainly talked about social media addiction and what it does to us. We've definitely talked about packaging waste and what the the proliferation of plastics have done to the planet and we've talked about how we don't connect in person anymore like we've done episodes on all those topics but we've never put it together to to figure out what's at the root of it and to realize that your motivations for doing all those things that aren't good for you are simply convenience and laziness. This is a tough thing to grapple with and i think it's it's a hard sell to convince people to go backwards. That's a really good point. I don't think it anybody is advocating to go backwards. I don't think that's it at all. I think it is instead of moving forward at at such. A breakneck speed always putting yourself. I always making sure that you're choosing to do things that require the least amount of energy and effort on your part. I think that all people are trying to say is every once in a while.

Why would you build a model car when you can go out and buy one well the point is you to build the model car because you get satisfaction of using your brain and actually figuring out how to put it together. You me an example of something you've done. Since you wrote this piece that you wouldn't have done before you wrote it.
