"Think it believes that Catholic school, I think we caught on, but we'll explain that later, folks. We were talking about. It was all good. I feel like all my interviews start and end with Catholic schools. There's usually nuns thrown in there somewhere too. But what should they take away if they're listening to what you're saying? So what does it mean? I think they can take away that there's lots of opportunities because as you said, there's going to be folks that are reimagining what they do best and are their noncore assets that they should be shedding. And does it fit better for somebody else? And I think that they should be looking, you know, if you're a private equity investor, you should be looking at your portfolios and making sure that your CEOs are like the smart ones. We're working with and are thinking proactively and thinking nimbly and thinking about how to be financially fit and operationally fit as we kind of continue to navigate these times because the interest rate environment alone makes it makes it a bit challenging. Yeah, it's being, like you said, preemptive about things. And that kind of waiting for maybe another shoe to drop if you will. Really fascinating. Thank you so much.

Student Arrested for Catholic Beliefs
"Catholic school, a student arrested for expressing Catholic beliefs. Josh Alexander charged at his Catholic high school, Catholic high school. For attending class, after being excluded for indicating his intent to adhere to his religious beliefs. That Canada is becoming less tolerant comes as no surprise, but even so a Catholic high school getting one of their 16 year old students arrested is a bit of a shock. Especially when the heart of the issue is his religious beliefs. Josh Alexander was arrested, get this folks. I want you to understand arrested. This is coming to America. Canada is just a bit in front of us in creating a police state.

What Have You Done for Me Lately?
"Hate to be the, what have you done for me lately guy, but I am the what have you done for me lately? Because I followed education Ohio for a long time. And when I go back to the Catholic school systems in which you're very well aware, they got capacity. They got desks, all they need is 5, $6000 per student. And they'll educate them. And we don't need to give $5000 to students who are going to go to school. I mean, some of the schools that are going to get that $5000 got huge endowments, right? It's choice though. What you're saying is, I don't want this kid to have choice. It's what it's going to mean. When you talk to college presidents, you talk to the admission officers in Ohio, it's going to need there's kids who want to go to college, have what they need to go to college, can't afford to go to college. This is going to be a significant boost to those kids. So you're arguing against choice. No, I'm arguing for fixed in the middle of first. I'm saying universal freedom for everyone at high school and then worry about later if you've got the money for college scholarship.

"One of the biggest right now is education with the kids The CRT stuff in school has even some Democrat parents I know on Long Island Absolutely furious about the CRT and the drag queen story hour stuff This is going to I believe drive an enormous number of suburban mother votes over to our side and the Republican side and could benefit the Anthony D esposito campaign for Congress Absolutely And especially in this district where there's such a heavy population of the orthodox community and a lot of people who send their kids to Catholic school I was a product of shama high school And we have this far left method of trying to push substantial equivalency into our schools where the state legislature actually wants to say that if you go to a private school that means the local school district is going to oversee what's being taught in schools And it's absolutely ridiculous We need to stand up to it And I think I agree with you wholeheartedly It's definitely one of the things one of the issues that we're seeing that the left is pushing both on a state level I mean I know they tried about a year ago and they saw a lot of pushback and then they laid off a little bit And then they pushed it again a few months ago and they saw the pushback They laid off again But make no mistake about it If governor hulk will wins and they keep their majority in the Senate and the assembly they are going to push this right through and shove it right down our throats And we need to stand up to it And we need to stand up to it by sending a clear message throughout Nassau county and Long Island that we are this isn't any more about a Republican or Democrat issue This is about American issues It's about Long Island issues and it's about common sense And thankfully the Republican Party and the team that we have here at NASA county put together by chairman Cairo is the team of common sense
How to Live A Fantastic Life
"catholic school" Discussed on How to Live A Fantastic Life
"And so I put in an application and had very limited knowledge, and I just started learning. I started studying, I started reading. I got hired. And I never stopped learning and reading. And what I learned was all of the things that I had learned in my life up to that point were a great start at building and developing something in this career because everything began and end with relationships. And I was from a big family where service was really important where you took care of someone that came into your home where in a big family you pay a close attention to everything and everyone that's around you because you got to wait for your moment to actually talk or speak or be a part of it. And so this relationship building opportunity was something that is what all business is about. And so the passion for the actual industry, I also didn't grow up with a whole lot. And so truthfully, I had one of my dad's friends in here this morning. We were helping him with the golf tournament that he's doing. And he had come to pick my brain because I've run a couple of good size events. We have a wine festival. We run with about 8000 people. I found it just under 13 years ago. And we were talking about how Friday and Saturday nights my mom and dad and him and his wife who we call uncle and aunt would come over every weekend and they would pull together their food. And they'd say, hey, what do you have at your house? What do you have at your house? And one had pork chops. And one had had some sides and they'd come over and they would share. And so growing up in a way that you had to really define your path and bringing those two worlds together. So money is something that can provide some level of freedom. And it's not the only thing that could provide freedom, but it's definitely provides choices. And so I saw the relationship building, the ability to find a connection with something that I was passionate about and a way out from not being able to afford much of anything as a nice common ground to start to build a career. Yeah, that sounds like a wonderful place to come from. You know, when you live the path that you eventually come up to, it's something that you really start enjoying in something that you really have found a way to make it work for you. And you know, I was a cosmetic doctor, but I came from very simple background and simple times. So when you talk about that path that you were on, I know it well. I know how hard it is to grow up at a time when you don't have enough food or you don't have enough things to get from point a to point B and you end up appreciating things that much more. You end up appreciating the little things that you have because they really are that much more meaningful to you. Yeah, it's interesting. My parents sent me to Catholic school and not only did they sacrifice because obviously public schools free but other people because of financial aid also helped us to be able to go to those schools. And so to that very point, I actually send my children and have sent them to Catholic school, but we're also the people nowadays that are helping to donate to the school.

Jim Serger on Life's Pivotal, Uniting Moments
"You sense from your rotting of this book that maybe this was an interest that hopefully there'll be a remembrance because right now, you know, someone who served in Congress, someone who's been around we're divided right now and whether people want to admit it, not admit it, whatever we're divided. What about these stories? Do you think maybe could help some of the younger people who didn't have a member so that unity coming together? And also for some of us who are older to remind us of this. That's funny you should say that because I interviewed a college student. He is 20 years old. Oh, wow. And I said, what does 9 11 mean to you? He said, in the day, I was in a crib that my parents house. So I have any recollection of 2001. He said, but when I entered kindergarten, first grade second grade, I remember saying the Pledge of Allegiance, I remember saying a prayer for them, all the fallen soldiers, first responders. So in his story, it wasn't about the day, it was about what happened the years on September 11th after that that he remembers as a young man growing up. And that's funny you touch base on that because my daughter is a senior in high school. As a matter of fact, I was talking with somebody yesterday that's a little bit older than her. Maybe a little bit younger than your daughter. And she thinks that COVID was kind of like that because she remembered going to work and then all of a sudden the next day they said, don't come to work. We are shut down out of the clear blue. And she's like, what am I doing? And so she correlated that day when America's shut down to maybe this day. Is it the same? Absolutely not. But it's the same thing for them. It's something that resonates with them. So the older generation, you know, my father used to talk about Pearl Harbor from his dad. Right. And whatever my grandpa communicated to my dad is what my dad communicated to me. Right. And then Kennedy was assassinated just like you referred to. I have to hear that first thought from my dad because that was 1963. I wasn't even born yet. My dad remembers going home. They were all dismissed from the Catholic school hearing from Cincinnati. So everybody went home. And back then, you all walked, so it didn't matter if you had school buses back then. Everybody trudged through snow on November 22nd anyway. So it didn't really matter. But he remembers where it was. And then the challenger explosion that happened when I was a freshman in high school, I remember being in that moment. So everybody has those pivotal moments in their lives as Americans that unites us or makes us open up the communication airways more.

No War Between Religious and Liberal Education
"No, I especially want archbishop chapu, who is listening right now, 'cause he listens every morning to hear this. You are the product of Catholic schools. Father John Allen is cited and we'll talk about that sister Mary Gerald is responsible for you being a PhD accomplished scholar because she persuaded your father because you pointed out in 1950s Brooklyn's sisters had more authorities than fathers to go to an elite school where you learned, but I want him to know. You say religious education and liberal education are not at war with each other. Honest to God, religious education civic education professional and technical education are not at war with the liberal arts. And in fact, if we want to talk about diversity, it will be wonderful if people who are in more technical or more marketable fields have greater above of the liberal arts and reversely, if people in the liberal arts would have some respect for professors of business, professors of law, there's an awful lot to be learned there. I learned as much from Julia Child as I learned from Alan bloom. I got to tell you that.
"catholic school" Discussed on RISE Podcast
"Maybe I would start by telling you how I discovered your work. There's actually at this years ago I was at miraval. I'm not sure if you're familiar with miraval. But I was there. Oh, did you and I had had some kind of a session I don't remember what it was, but it was the first time really in my adult life that I had ever thought or kind of heard about spiritual guides. And I grew up believing in guardian angels and believed in God and the things that protect us, but I had never really thought of what a guide would be or how that might show up in our lives. And I was seeking. I was, oh, I wish there was a book that I could read. I wish I could find something. And I had this instinct or the intuition that if I went to the bookstore, miraval that maybe there would be something. And on your on the shelf, I sound one of your books, which sort of introduced me to this idea of guidance and listening and angels and all of it. So that was how I actually discovered your work. Yeah. So would you tell listeners a bit how you got to be where you are and kind of how this became your modality of teaching? Well, I have always grown up in an environment that was really centered in the understanding that we have sense of this. I also grew up, I went to Catholic school, I grew up in a very spiritual more than just strictly religious, but my mom was a very matriarchal family. My mom was when she was a child. She was caught up in an evacuation and in the war in World War II, which was 12. And she was the second to youngest of 11 children. And during the evacuation, she got separated from her family. And with bombings and whatever fast forward she ended up in a German of war camp. And her whole life got blown apart. She was she had no family. She was traumatized. Everybody was just so convinced we're going to die and she said an inner voice in me said, listen to me. I'll keep you safe. I will keep you safe. One of the things that happened in all the ordeal of that is she lost her hearing as well. So I grew up with a mother and no curing. And so long story short, her, she called that my spirit. My spirit said, don't listen to all this. Don't let there's more than this. And I'll protect you. So she ended up doing a series of events surviving the war. When at 15, she was emancipated with all the other prisoners of war and was in a small town. In Germany and one day, her spirit said to her, you know that beautiful handsome American soldier that just came to liberate this town. He's going to be your boyfriend. So she told her friends out lived in a barn they said nobody had anything. We scrounged for food. It was just desperation. But and they laughed at her instead of you looked at yourself lately. You're wearing two pairs of army boots. You smell like a horse. Why would he be interested? But one day she was in the she was out gathering wood, which was how they would exchange things and she found it she exchanged wood. With the local restaurant, they would maybe get an egg or two. So she's walking home with the wood and the rainstorm in this soldier comes driving by and she realized this is my moment. She starts smiling at him and he drove right by her in his motorcycle with a little sidecar and splattered her with mud. Head to toe and she was so angry she threw some piece of wood and clogged them in the head. And fast forward, that's my father. So they got married big epic experience. She was only 15. And came to America, never found, had found her family, but she and had been traumatized and had illness in the war. She was dab, so she had no family, no education, no language, no outside influence is just this inner guidance, but it took care of her and saved her. It gave her the love of her life. So in my family growing up, we grew up with her telling us no matter what appears and no matter what you see it no matter how bad it is, always trust your spirit. It's the Holy Spirit in you and it will guide you. And don't listen with your ears to other people's fears because they give you bad information. Listen to your heart and listen with your whole body. And she said, we called that trusting your vibes. So I grew up in a family where that's what I was taught to listen to. And it was not words. It was energy. It was listening to the feeling in my body in which way it was being drawn or repelled and so that was normal. Until I went to school, I never gave a second thought. It was when I started school about your daughter's age and a little later. And I had a big family. There were 7 kids. So I had a whole world that lived this way. But when I started school, it became obvious to me that this was not everybody is

How the Media Elite Discounted Trump Voters
"Is a column today in The New York Times by Brett Stevens on what he was wrong. Most wrong about Trump voters. And I believe it's because Manhattan beltway media elites don't have any connection with America's middle class. And I mean, everybody on every public course everywhere, 9 out of ten are going to come from America's great middle class. You agree with my proposition. I agree. And Catholic schools, you're going to run into all kinds of people, even embarrassed in Georgia, even at Kennedy and worn Ohio. They're going to have a cross section because that's what Catholic schools are. Agree? Agreed. So Brett today says, I just didn't get Trump voters. It's the second admission against interest. The first was by Peggy noonan. I don't know if you've had a chance to read it yet, but I think it's a very important admission by Brett about what America media elite have gotten wrong about Trump voters. Have you read it yet? I read it. I did. What did you think about it? Well, I think he's right. I think there was a lot of folks who missed all of that. And as it was happening in 2016, there was just a discounting of a whole kind of section of the population.

This Is the Clarence Thomas We DON'T Know
"Everybody to see the movie, Michael. I want everybody to read the bookmark. But share if you will a little of the klans Thomas that we don't know. The prior to the hearing, the amazing story of how he grew up, his family, the less than conservative clarence Thomas in college, share a little bit of a history of that the pre famous clans Thomas. Well, as you know, he was born in pinpoint Georgia in 1948. And it's a gullah speaking area. So his English was not his first language. His father left before he could remember, so he was raised by his mother, who then took clarence Thomas and his brother to Savannah, where he suffered dire poverty, hungry, all the time, called in the winter, brought to school, and then left and then he'd walk out and wander the streets of Savannah until his mother brought him to her father, his grandfather to raise, and that justice Thomas life round. And hard work, his grandfather said, the damn vacation is over. Two boys thought, what vacation? And it was work all the time. They went to school. They went home and they worked on the Catholic school, right? That's right. He was Catholic or very unusual thing for black men in those days, and he sent them to a parochial school. Remember, it's the segregated south. It was all black, but run by these Irish nuns that continue to give them discipline hard work, a rigorous curriculum. And he thrived, and wanted to be a priest, which a lot of people do not know. And enrolled in the seminary. Only one of two or the only black seminaries. Right. He was integrating what were formerly all white seminaries. And he would have been one of the first black priests in Savannah. But it was the late 60s, and he experienced racism there. And as you reached a peak, perhaps when he was watching Martin Luther when Martin Luther King Jr. was shot and one of the seminary and says, I hope that SOB dies. And then something snapped. Something snapped, and he became a black radical, as you say, less than less than a conservative. He said, the more radical the better, describes themselves as an angry black man. And he went to holy cross where he got a full scholarship. His grandfather kicked him out of the house when he lost his vocation. And he went through this radical period. And we

Supreme Court Rejects Ban on Aid to Religious Schools
"So we have so much to discuss. Let's start perhaps not with January 6th and the wait has been proceeding. But with the latest ruminations, noises coming from the Supreme Court looked as if a good decision is coming out with regards to choice and a certain coach. Yes, well, there was an important case yesterday that was decided that if Maine was going to give out money to people to go to private schools, they could not say, oh, but you can't go to a religious school so that religious schools and public schools had to be treated the same to get taxpayer money given them to aid them in going to the schools. This is the last of the anti Catholicism laws that were remarked about this because this is something that maybe younger generations don't appreciate, such it was such a big issue. JFK running for president, this potential papist running the government, but it was actually a lot of state animosity to one faith in America. And that was in my faith Catholicism. I was called a macro snapper. I'm a mackerel's not typical about all three of us. In the Midwest, I mean, there was great prejudice. Nobody wanted their sons to date me. I was a Catholic. It was very. Ward is a badge of honor. Ultimately. But this is the blade amendments. Explain the blame the Middle East? Yes. James G Blaine wanted a federal amendment to say that no public funds could ever be used for anything that has religion for schools or churches. Based upon the disestablishment clause at a perversion of the disestablishment club that, for some strange reason, a Catholic school is somehow a government distortion of the founding principles of the republic. Right, nothing with it religious could get any kind of government funds. And he tried it, but it failed as a constitutional amendment. So all

Yeah, that'd be nice. Wow. So in your book, you write about your Catholic upbringing and going to Catholic school. 13 years. Catholics, though, have a very strict view on abortion. Life begins at conception in their eyes. Was abortion and reproductive rights something that you personally had to evolve on. Oh, to be honest, yeah. When you grow up in a Catholic school and everything, you are never given the other side of the argument about why does someone why would someone want or need an abortion in the first place? And in Catholic school, they will even tell you the honorable thing to do is to give birth even if her life is in danger because this child is a gift from God and that child will be able to carry on that legacy whatever blah blah. That's what I had to deal with when I was in school. Like that was that was my Catholic school upbringing was no exceptions, not for rate, not for incest. Because they were like, no, it is murder. It's murder for any time after the time of conception. And that's it. And if you don't want to be pregnant, that don't have sex. I don't think it took that long for me to get into puberty, where I'm just like, oh, a lot of this has warped. And but at the same time, it sure was part of what contributed to me, not exploring myself until I was 16. Absolutely. You know, which is a lot later than other people.

Ep 155: A Once-In-A-Generation Opportunity to Shape the Future of Nonprofit Work (with Allison Fine and Beth Kanter) - burst 01
"So if we think about digital transformation about leveraging new technologies like smart tech and organizational change, whether that's the way we work or whether it's being more innovative with our program models in a way that adds value for our mission and our stakeholders. So smart tech is really good at doing these rote tasks like intake forms or expense reports. But it's more than just liberating us from this busy work. It can really profoundly change us. Because of that gift of time that you mentioned. And here's the intersection with well-being. Will nonprofits use that dividend of time to try to get more and more done, like those workers underneath the city, or can we repurpose that time to improve our relationships with donors with our other external clients and stakeholders, as well as give staff that space to plan, even to dream to innovate. So I think this is the intersection of digital transformation and well-being. And another way to put it is with the tagline from the movie, which is really about putting humans at the center, not the machines or the tools, and that tagline of metropolis is the intermediary between the hand and the brain is the heart. So what we're talking about is approaching this technology that can be highly efficient to be very human centered and really not to invest it back into busyness, but to really invest it with that spaciousness of that leads to innovation and doing work differently. And I just want to say something about spaciousness versus busyness. And I think that's really important. I'm learning a lot about the notion that there's work that fuels you and there's work that depletes you. Right? And I feel like the kind of work you're talking about that lives in this place called spaciousness is the work that fuels you, that right, it is the staring at your computer and doing that busywork you describe that depletes you. That's what puts people on the fastpass to burn out. It's not how much work you do, although there's some of that. It's about the kind and quality of the work that you do. And that's really I think what you're speaking to here, right Beth? Absolutely. And I think also the amount of work is also important too when it leads to burnout. So if this is liberating us, to do more quality work, it's also liberating us to take that time off and refuel and have the confidence really to make that change. And that it's going to be better. So I was never in a classroom without a crucifix on the wall. And Catholic school, the nuns would always say that learning

Well, if it's Catholic with a capital C and if a Jewish school is Jewish with a capital J, but we don't need the caps right now and say with the Christian schools, et cetera well, then they teach what that religion teaches. If the religion is consonant with everything being taught by secular society, the religion is

Catholic School Promotes Gender Confusion
"And I looked to a Catholic school to be an ally in our fight to break our daughter free from the grip of gender confusion. We were naive. Our daughter now 15 was 13 when she was coached into believing that she was born in the wrong body, and could and could change to be the opposite sex. This led her to self loathing. But instead of finding a partner within the Roman Catholic Church, we discovered that our local Catholic high school had adopted procedures that promote transgenderism. This situation has left us with no safe place safe place to educate our child and a profound feeling of disappointment and abandonment. As I previously wrote for the daily signal, our daughter's transgender identity came with little warning. She started 9th grade at a public charter high school in the fall of 2020. But due to COVID-19 didn't actually set foot in a classroom.

We need the antiviral pills, and then we're just going to be Florida. AOC, of course, found Florida, very nice place to be during the winter break. It's chaos as The New York Times and schools confront on. No, it's not. It's union coverture, and as I said again, on special report last night, New York City mayor Eric Adams, for the first time in 8 years, somebody cares what in New York City mayor said, has gotten off on the right foot by saying schools are staying open. Some parents got emails on Sunday Night that schools were going to be closed on Monday. That is so erratic. So irrational. So irresponsible of schools to do, to parents who are working and need to arrange for child care and don't have computers. For the left, who wants to find racism and everything, closing schools is the most racist thing the United States does if we judge by disparate impact. Because wealthy white kids are going to be fine. They'll get tutors they'll go to private schools. And by the way, enroll your kid in a private school. Just pull them out, start homeschooling, find a private school, dig deep, do what my parents did. Part of your budget, go to the local Catholic school, go to the local Jewish school, go to the local school school and say, what do you what will you take? Because I got to get out of public school. They've lost tens of thousands of students in a time that they lost more. But I digress. It's not chaos. It's school union.

"Well, Steve's release is joining us here today on the Doug Collins podcast Steve. We're glad to have you as a part and again, a lot going on and I know right now in Congress is sort of crazy, but one of the things that I always like to start with podcast out with is just really discussing, you know, how you became safe, you know? A lot of people only see us in our roles out front TV, whatever it may be. And I want them to also understand that there's people behind those real life stories. So tell us a little bit about yourself where you came from, how you got started and everything like that. Sure. Well, Doug first great to be with you and glad you're staying involved in the game. And we need your voice out there, like it's been out there for a long time. I tell you what. I mean, you know, I was born in the city of New Orleans, grew up in the suburbs and really the roots of my family or would have stuck with me my whole life, and that's the traditional hard work and blue collar roots of my dad was a real estate agent. My mom stayed at home and raised us until we got out of school and then she went worked and parish government for a while. And they just taught us about hard work and just the traditional values I went to a Catholic school for high school in New Orleans. And I went to LSU and worked my way through school. My parents helped me. It's a good student loans. I worked at Home Depot. I'm the only I'm the only member of Congress who actually worked at Home Depot. And I did that to help pay my way through school. And I got a degree in computer science. Look, while I was at LSU, that's really when I started getting interested in politics and never thought I'd run for office, but you go back to Louisiana in the 1980s when I was there. You know, first of all, Ronald Reagan was president. And Doug, there was no better gold standard for the conservative movement. When I was registering the vote, there was no doubt I was voting. I was registering Republican because Reagan was just to me the Pinnacle of what leadership was. And I just wanted to follow him where he was
"catholic school" Discussed on Couples Therapy
"Let's see. That's ridiculous. So many. 'cause I remember ridiculous like two parents. I mean, you posted, I remember like, you know, seeing some picture, you know, like for, you know, siblings day or something on IG where I was like, all of these people in one house. I couldn't fathom it. How many have siblings do you have? But we had all in one house. That's my point. It's like to have like 6 kids all under one roof. Yeah. We were only truly under one roof for one year of like everyone loves their full time because my youngest sister was born when I was a junior. My brother was a senior. And so then he went to college and then I went to college. But then but when I came back, I think there were when I came back, I think my older brother was like, living in Queens and my younger, whether I think was at college, so it was like my other younger brother and my sister and my other sister. So it was actually that was a lot. That was like four of us. But then when my other, but I went to college. So I don't know. There's always a cycling. There was a cycle, yeah. But you grew up in your parents like with that many of you, I know you were a runner, right? That was your thing and in high school and stuff. Yeah, that was very much my thing. You did track and field? I did check in feel distance. I like to run just trying to get back into it right now. I've gained a lot of weight over the quarantine, pandemic, which isn't good or bad. It's just the body, the fact, and today. Tell it sister. Absolutely. I go on like a 45 minute spiral of body positivity that ends up alienating everyone. And so I do miss running and so I'm trying to get back into running. It's a different experience, but whatever. I'm this weekend, man. I ran 12 miles last night. What? And then I ran like 6 and a half today around 50 miles this week. I just I'm trying to run. I'm doing none to run this app. So it's like nothing to you're supposed after 12 weeks. You're supposed to be able to run for half an hour straight. But I'll tell you, it's like literally like a you run for a minute, you walk for two. You run for a minute, you guys are doing that. My shins are hurting. I was like, I broke my legs. I was like, how do you think this was supposed to be so hard? Especially just doing like a minute at a time? Yeah. Well, what choose can I ask? Because I ordered something 'cause right now, I don't want a short circuit. Okay, you're ready. We'll talk about it after. I was fine with the running so you started talking gear. How many electrolytes are you drinking afterwards? Well, I missed you. Muscle just falling off. I know. I was like, it just hurts, I'm bad at running. For years and years of my life, if I worked in running stores, fitting people making those racks. So you're a pro, you know. So great. I will be bothering you offline. I would describe this. I would describe myself as uniquely qualified. But you know, speaking of running, you know, pat for so many years, what were you running from? That's a fucking transition. It is funny. I mean, when I think of like my teenage years, which is when I really got into running, I was so sad. I was when I think of myself in high school, I was like, I just had this deep sadness all the time that I don't even know exactly what it was. And I do think running really helps me with that. And I didn't realize how sad I was 'cause I was never, I didn't know that I am happier. As an adult, I'm like, oh my God. And I only had that feeling sometimes. I'm like, oh my God, I decided to feel like 24 7, it's like heaviness. And I think running was like a little bit of an escape from that and I think yeah, I think and it also really helped me make I was, you know, a closet gay person. And really Catholic school. And it was the aughts when it was like. It was like American pie culture. It would be great. You can be gay in that. And so. It is specific. And it's just like, it's okay to fuck a pie, but not have a consensual relationship with some of your own gender. Yes. And so yeah, I think and running help me make friends with I was always it's just always been. I remember in 8th grade, I had one friend and I remember telling him I was like, you know, for some reason, it's actually like so much easier. I find it to talk to girls and to boys. And he was like, well, that would mean you were gay. And I was like, yeah, I'm just kidding about that. And then I made a memo like never say that again. And so I just like all of high school was so careful about like it was just an experience like being having to pretend it was hard talk to the girls and easier to boys, but it was so hard to talk to boys and easy doctor girls. So I think having a sport, it made it easy because it was kind of this built in group that was kind of coed because it was like boys and girls. You know what I mean? Also, there's a kind of isolation to running. Right. You're like, I don't have to talk to anyone. This is great. Totally. Yeah, totally. I mean, you know, it's like a group of people running together, which is fun 'cause it's like just chatty, but you never have to say anything unless you have something so brilliant and funny to say, so it's like so it's just a win. It's like you own there's only to be one. It's have to be one. And then, or it's like by yourself, which is absolutely heaven, because I've always been very my mind really wanders. I'm always like dissociating. I'm always like, oh my God, it's truly three hours later, where have I been where have I gone? You know what I mean? Yeah. So running was like, didn't help me with that but it indulged that a lot because whatever. Do you get that? Where's your brain? You're like, where are you? Where do you go? Sorry, I was thinking about that pixy song in my head..

"The school is very much in charge of any of the consultation process so they used to just promoting surveys and things out to their supporters. So that is probably why they were just complete unprepared for being this owners opposition and they just couldn't. They couldn't come up with any arguments while the school needs to catholic school. They just said they basically they just wanted to have a catholic school there. There was very little serious engagement with any of the criticism. the concession if you can call it View the concession of having only capital in terms of eighty percents of of discrimination admissions. I suspect they view that as quite large concession isos Quiz there any sense that there was a sort of anti catholic feeling among the opponents when people have a used to that position being privileged people convert often react in terms of feeling attacked when that criticized. And i'm talking about the dallas is in the in this case should always remember. There are people of all faiths non who who oppose faith schools including Many catholics there was suggestion in some quarters of on social media. And i believe one. Churches newsletter explicitly said that the campaign was anti-catholic producing any evidence that they would just defining being against faith school to happen to be catholic as anti-catholic a should i should point out that the the the cia newsletter which made that claim about the The campaign against school did apologize and acknowledged they were wrong about that But just to give you insight we. We ran multiple petitions on all on our website food. Various stages of this campaign. And i read hundreds upon hundreds of petition signatures voss voss majority from local residents and i think one comment in over hundreds that was Unacceptably it was just anti-catholic it wasn't against school. Necessarily and i happen to be someone. I'm not sure how they'd found that the petition. But it wasn't even for local resident and the residents. I mean does quite a stronger position with. Was there any support for having this catholic school. I think there was support across peterborough as a whole because that support is largely generated by the catholic church Having not very great strong distribution that work it was it was very much able to promote the proposal and the consultation to their own supporters. That's that's how this process works and analysis of the consultation responses across peter were showed. I think that the majority of the people supported the proposal again over skype about that. Different isometric promotion analysis of people their local. Those who actually be most directly affected by the schools showed an extremely strong opposition among local residents.

"Known faith school that they can get their children into is putting parents in the really difficult situation and i just don't believe the second racing children based on religion is a good thing i i teach in a school seeing the diversity seeing the range of religions and how they get own in an ideal world. If they don't get on the school can deal with that but we already pregnant. We are inclusive the idea of hierarchy having hierarchy of religions as well that just seems disrespectful To be children children they might have conflict parents. But that doesn't make them catholic. And i think they have a right to ward education it all religions and none in order to make the decision when they're old enough. Do you think that there's a conflict here between said the right of catholic parents to choose the education for their children and the right to the children have a exposure to different points. I think of what what religion people choose to practice. Homes is absolutely the business. Don't believe that that should then have a role in any kind of public service. And yes i think. Children have a right to learn about different religions to make that choice themselves when they're older a tracy diggers but i agree. I think really teaching religion should just the nra Oh to your place of worship. I don't feel that it should be able to disclose and segregate children based on offenders.

Awful awful and you can go facebook and find any time that hampton schools parents have trouble getting that children to the school of their choice but by official definition. It's fine the situations okay. Many residents were complaining about the schools admissions policy. But technically it's an oversubscription criteria policy. And so it just seemed like they were being left to fend for themselves not really understanding what was going on not getting support from the council so i kind of stepped in and along with a fellow lipton council at the green. A counselor We put in a cooling to try and say that the process the count following to allow school to be built hasn't been done properly. We tried to get the decision reversed in that way. I'm just to be clear. This is a conservative controlled council. Listen to it. Yes and in terms of how the council took the process food now and there was this other school. Hunting academies was trying to put in their own. How did the council decide to choose. Stay catholic does is bit rather than the hampton academy spent the dorsey school with what was presented to the council the hampton a the other hampton academy school did not pass the dmv criteria So not school was not a possibility. As far as the council were concerned it was they start. See school That was what was in front of them and in the colon procedure. They talked about all the other alternatives. If they refused the dorsey school and they will involved time. No guarantee that hampton academy school would be put full with and it would cost them more money as well and they lose funding so basically. They were brilliant. Hurry to get this school through.

Tc school so I had some great stuff development before moving to illinois where it was also classroom teacher literacy coach then. I became a literacy coach in lot of different schools. So now. I'm all over the city in catholic schools in chicago public schools in the south side and also in the affluent suburbs. So that is kind of an interesting wide variety of Student needs All kids need the same thing which is to be like centered. Seen heard definitely do you. Do you see any of the skills that you had attained from your former career. Carry over our help you into the teaching feel. Oh my gosh. Every day. I thank i couldn't believe at the time that i was being paid to just tell people's stories and to just ask them questions and to just report kind of link there truths and i feel that that is what teaching is feel the social the social emotional piece of it more than i feel that education sometimes because I just really firmly believe that the kids are our curriculum.

We have a family to Catholic school. You know, e understand. Attorney Steve didn't call me Father. Frankly, let's call your father Frank. So don't promise. Sister vibe. Okay. Okay. So my my My only have a comment. I believe I want congratulations on your retirement in your grandchildren will save your life you my husband would do. You'll tell you that, but Um, Anyhow, my husband and I have been listening and all this talk about suing these lawyers or taking away We're not taking a viral get him out of the barrel. Yeah, taking their licenses away based taking her license anyway. Correct. And my thoughts are I haven't heard this anywhere else across the country so Are they trying to make a point? And then once this If this goes through here, I believe it would spread through the country. My question, and my husband's is what they didn't go after the Democratic lawyers who, um Whenever we went, you know after impeachment for Trump And, um The Russian collusion stuff. Well, good question. I mean, the Russian collusion, especially in the how many millions that we spend on the Mueller investigation, you know, And that was exactly right. Something like $35 million, so You know, there was there was money spent on that side, too. But you're absolutely right. That's ah, That is a proper comparison. Right there. If you're going to be consistent than you've got to do it on both sides of the aisle right? Otherwise it's not a legal system it Z punitive system. Correct. And I do believe it'll spread across the country if it gets through here, so we just have to be stopped here. We shall see her. Okay, Barb, I really appreciate that. Okay. And you thank you for the call. Really appreciated for listening to the program. Let's go to Canton now. And Ryan, you're on the Frank Beckmann. Chill. Hello there. Hey, Frank, Um, so drugs linking to a story about the differences between state governors and how they're rolling out the vaccine, especially in regards to underserved communities on like Using Texas, for example, between North and South Dallas, South Dallas is very black Latino community and they were giving them some vaccines. And then in these in these very poor Black and Latino clinics. Also in there, seeing a flood of white people that they've never seen before, because they had the access to the league from the high speed computers and the transportation and they're basically flooding and grabbing all these vaccines and little clinic. So like what? We're what we're trying to give them to like these Old 75 year old black ladies and you know, and they were trying to, you know, white guy, right? All right, And so they were trying to find ways around. The Texas governor said. No. Any Texan can go to any clinic they want and otherwise, you know, it would be racist. You're targeting. Towards based on race, and I'm wondering that's AH Republican governor. I'm wondering like a stay, and they were also saying, like states that have more liberal governors like ours would be like, Are they going to be targeting towards like communities like Flint, where There's definitely more likely to get the vaccine and not be having good insurance. And are we going to see a bunch of white people heading to Flint to get in? Is that how you on a moral level? Is that okay? Well on a moral level. I don't agree with doing that to you. No, no, I don't either. But I mean, if you're trying to protect your family and you and you know, I don't mean you make a lot of justifications. There's like that couple that you know, I hired a private Charter jet and flew to Yukon Territory and took a vaccine. It was going to go to their get an 80 year old indigenous, you know, Eskimo woman, and they they got shit. Publicly. Shame for it. He lost his job is a big Canadian. Casino tycoon right? Whatever, In the meantime, you much You don't know what you don't know what's happening to the people who didn't get the vaccine in the meantime, and who might have been protected from the virus that way, so it's just it's not good behavior. It's it's improper to do that, I think and unethical, organized a little. How it is because it really hasn't happened here yet, But I'm sure there will be cases where you know like they're getting using. Flint is an example. Where all the sudden you're going to see a lot of people from, you know the whiter parts of Flint. Going to these if they find out, you know, because they have better access to the Internet, so they're going to find out quicker. There's vaccines are available. And then get to these places where they really would never, ever ever right. I don't describe that kind of behavior unnecessarily to the race of the person but to the to the soul of the person. S o. You know, desperation? Yeah, Exactly. There is a desperation out there. And so some people are willing to do anything right now because they believe that got to get that vaccine. It's the only thing that's gonna save them. And they'll do anything to get it. And so sadly even hear stories like this, All right. Hey, listen, I appreciate the call. Thank you for bringing up the issue. I think it's important to talk about. Let's go. Lavonia real quick. It didn't at least one more with Bill. You're on the Frank Beckmann show. Hello. All right. We lost built. There You are. I've been receiving letters from DTE last week, four months stating that I've been using more power than my other neighbors within a one mile radius and this is due to the new meters that they installed during the Obama administration. And one of the days the things they said when the new meters came in, If I wanted to opt out of the new major, so I had to pay about roughly $10 a month more, But I just don't like the idea now that they were monitoring my house and my usage of power. So I'd like to see what some of your other listeners have to say about that..
