Who says that there are no signs of the trends slowing of Bay Area residents moving here I would thought it would like, you know, after about six months, you'll start to see a little bit of a slowdown and we just haven't seen that We actually have seen more people coming a lot for the four months just because a lot of people I don't know. They got the orders from their employers who doesn't go work remotely, And there's a lot of positions that are not coming back or their companies are all things you can work in different spots. So we're seeing a lot of that. I think there's a lot of uncertainty in the first six months to tell you the truth. And what happened was that people stayed put. And now people are realizing, Okay, we can move the organ. We could move to Sacramento. We could move the Los Angeles and all of the other areas. Not as much L A but definitely a lot of people moving out of state. And then I would say that Sacramento's close enough to weather and they pulled him back. They go. Okay. We could drive in for a while, or we can do those things and We found a new influx of people that are moving into Sacramento and then we found some other trends there happening in in Sacramento itself as well.

A lot of people have moved out of state a lot. There was a lot of talkers. So there was a lot of noise, right? I heard so many people tell me you know whether it's politics or whether state policies or whatever it is. They're saying we're moving out of Sacramento. We're moving out of California. No matter what. And I would say only about 5 to 10% of the people. Did actually move. A Zafar is that I'm seeing with our numbers, and we fell upwards of about 130 to 140 houses a year and I would say about 10 15 moved out, You know, maybe a little bit more. Um, And then I will stay out of all those houses. We did have one person moving into California. So that was something that was very unique. Normally we have about 15 to 20% of people coming from other areas and our group, which you know, we do A lot of business in Sacramento. We didn't see anyone coming into California.

Here's Kcrw's Cherry Glaser. Some Republican activists have called Val Adios vote inappropriate and accused him of being a traitor. There was a push to formally rebuked him at this weekend's virtual convention, but party leadership refused to engage and the matter was set aside. It seemed part of a bigger effort by the California GOP to avoid the kind of sniping and division that's played Republicans and other states. The news website Cal matters, reports that two other measures that would have censured to revoke the membership of never Trumpers and political extremists were also pulled off the table or killed.

"Freezing temperatures in the Central Valley Rain and up to 10 Ft of Snow in this year in Nevada. Let's talk about some of the wild weather around the country this week with Mark Elliott. He's a meteorologist and storm specialist at the Weather Channel. Market. There's something called an atmospheric river sitting over California. What does that mean? Yeah, yeah, The Atmospheric River is it's both vitally important and potentially the definition of too much of a good thing. It picks up moisture from the tropical Pacific, and as a storm comes across the Pacific Ocean, it can really focus that in into these narrow corridors, which then get pointed at the West. The Western U. S. It's so important because some areas of the West get the majority of the precipitation from these events and yet also potentially destructive as there could be flash flooding. You know, you mentioned feet of snow. This is not a low impact event when they happen. Exactly how much precipitation are we talking about here, and I can help with the drug her. Is it really just too much. So both, uh it will help the drought to some degree, But this is now a long term drought that's been building in across the West once again, and so every little bit helps, right. You never wanted discount getting this type of precipitation in I don't think it will erase the drought completely through the West, but it's certainly better than not getting anything at all. And as you mentioned, some of the mountains are getting 10 ft. 11 ft of snow in the higher peaks that is excellent for the locking up the moisture for the traditional drier months still to come. We need that precipitation locked in Mark Elliott, meteorologist and storm specials from the Weather Channel. Thanks Thank you. Will onto a story of adoption, which has had a troubled history in the US for decades. During the mid 20th century, millions of unwed mothers were sent away to have their babies in secrecy and shame. Those babies were often given to couples in closed adoptions, which meant that birth mother and child would lose their shared history permanently. Journalist Gabrielle Glaser tells the story of one such family in a new book called American Baby, which is out today. Every all welcome and thank you for writing this book. Oh, thank you so much. And you and you do write it through the eyes of a young woman named Margaret Earl and her biological son, who was born in 1961. What led to their separation. Well, Margaret got pregnant out of wedlock, and in those days it was actually illegal to have premarital sex in New York state. And her baby was taken from her by a very predatory adoption system that existed in New York but also existed nationwide. She and her boyfriend, George, who would later become her husband were actually in love. I mean, they were committed to each other, but that didn't matter, did it. No, it didn't. And despite their best efforts, they did everything they could to try to stay together. They Loped. They tried to convey their fitness as young parents. Social workers in New York City, and it absolutely it didn't matter. It didn't matter to the system, and it didn't matter to their parents either. And so Margaret was sent away to a place that was Me. Frankly, it sounded very unpleasant. Tell me about this home for unwed mothers that she went to the maternity home was a large old estate that was repurposed to house dozens of girls at any time. They were really kept under lock and key. Their diaries were read. Their outgoing letters were read. Their incoming letters were read. They had a strict regimen of chores to which each pregnant girl was assigned. They were watched as if they were toddlers at a preschool. And when the baby finally came, they were taken to the hospital. They were forced to sign these papers. And then that means the records were sealed. Once Margaret and those other girls let go of that baby. It was by design. That she and others would never know what happened to her son. Yes, Absolutely. This was his system that had been established pretty much nationwide. In the twenties and thirties, you would seal an original birth certificate and then issue an amended birth certificate that listed the child's new name. And his adoptive parents, as his original mother and father on the theory was that it would protect the child from the taint of illegitimacy. Protect the mother from the legacy of her alleged wantonness, but most importantly, it would protect the adoptive parents. From anybody ever coming to interfere with their newly created family, And this was happening in a profound scale across the United States. How common was it and what was happening in the culture of our country at that time? Oh, that's a really great question. The sexual revolution was simmering in the years after the war. We don't really think about it then because it's you know, sort of tacked on to the 1960 late 19 sixties, but After the war, soldiers were coming home, having not been celibate during their service. They were unlikely to want to be celibate with their stateside girlfriends. The culture itself was shifting dramatically. There was a new middle class that was exploding in the suburbs, and for the first time, young kids had privacy that they had never had before. They had wreck rooms and their own suburban bedrooms and really, pretty importantly, the back seat of the family, Buick So the the the so the rate of unwed pregnancies skyrocketed between 1946 and the late 19 sixties. And there was no abortion that was illegal. There was no birth control, even for married couples in some states until the late 19 sixties, and there was certainly no sex education. So all of those factors combined to lead to about 3.5 million young women. Getting pregnant out of wedlock. Well, well, Can I tell you something? Yes. My mother was one of them. Oh, my goodness. Yeah, I got it. I got a phone call from her 2.5 years ago, and she asked me if if I was sitting down because I had a half sister that was born 1970 that few people in the world had ever known about. And she told me that she went to a home to have a baby just like Margaret did. And even last night when I was talking to her about it 50 years later, when she told me about the day that she left her baby at the hospital, she was crying. I mean her pain. Through this process was so incredibly deep all these years later, and and I just wonder what you think The impact of all those years of secrecy are when you think about the women that you've spoken with. Oh, thank you so much for sharing that story. I'm I'm really moved by it. And when I heard this story about Margaret and David, and it's so interesting because David himself When he told me that he had found his birth mother. That was the first thing he asked me. Are you sitting down? I found my birth mother. On on Lee happened because he had taken DNA's a test that his wife had given him for his birthday on the same thing happened in my family. That is.

Investors Can Now Bet On The Future Of Water Prices In California
"This week in california. Water became a commodity. That means it can be traded now. Just like oil or gold.

Coronavirus Surge Prompts California To Implement Strict Measures
"The situation in california is now so serious. Most of the state is under a stay at home order. Thirty three million people in a state of forty million or impacted by the strict dick strict measures taken since march and this is because hospitals are filling up very quickly with coronavirus patients. Nicole nixon with cap radio joins us this morning from sacramento nicole. Good morning morning so explain how this stay at home orders working because it sounds like it's it doesn't apply to everyone in the state right right so these new orders type. Two intensive care unit capacity. They'll go into effect when an area has less than fifteen percent of its. Icu beds available. And it's not just the bed sitter the issue here at staff to work those beds that are feeling tight too. So the southern california region and the central valley region went under these new. Stay at home orders yesterday when the available. Icu beds there. Dip below that fifteen percent and also given how things are going here. It's expected that the rest of the state will hit that. Icu trigger in the next week. Or two here on some counties are not even waiting. They're just saying we're going to preemptively. Implement this order but before we even have to. Yeah five counties in the bay area said that. They're not gonna wait for their used to get to that. Point here is san francisco health officer. Dr tomasz aragon explaining why unlike previous searches. Every hospital in california is under stress. There is no place to transfer people if we run out of beds. Three quarters of the states hospital beds are currently fool. These area counties actually implemented the very first day at home order back in march even before the state did so. This strategy is in line with how they've been handling the pandemic from the beginning when we all remember california taking some of the strictest approaches of anywhere in the country early on so does it just feel like we're going back in time to march now in california a little bit the these. These new orders are not as sweeping as the march. Stay at home order for example schools. That are already open can stay open on the other hand. Businesses like hair and nail salons movie theaters bars and wineries have to close again restaurants. Have to go take out or delivery. Only in churches have to conduct worship services outdoors retail. Stores can stay open this time but at a very limited capacity and these orders will be in effect for at least three weeks however business owners reacting will. Many business owners are angry. Small businesses have already been through so much this year and some see the ban on outdoor dining and things like that as arbitrary. I've been talking with small business owner rosy barra. She's a hairstylist. In temecula in southern california and she told me that she does not intend to comply with this new round of restrictions. I am not closing.

Yeah well the state doesn't have an easy way to enforce it without relying on local police in some local sheriff's have have been reluctant to shut down individual businesses and in saying they'll go education.

Toni Bernhard on Self-Compassion and the First Noble Truth
"Because it is so great to have you with us on the wisdom comcast. I'm really happy of asia. Thanks daniel think we might start off with you know so in about two thousand and one is when you you got sick. I believe in and seems. Then you've found inspiration in buddhist teachings and practices for learning how to be sick and we're gonna get into that in detail. But i wondering if you could tell us a little bit about how you initially came across these teachings and actresses okay. Well it was an about ten years before. I got sick so approaching thirty years. This may is nineteen year of my suffering from chronic ghana's so when i was in my early twenties i developed some interest in spiritual matters a lot of alan watts. I got my mantra from the maharishi. And then my husband. And i raised kids. All of that was put aside and when they Either late high school or had left home. When i had my wartime to myself. I started Looking back into spiritual practices and maybe only academic would do this. I bought like six copies of the dow teaching. Maybe five and i read the same verse in each one and then wrote my on verse based on my understanding of those translations and i have no idea were any of that is but it's relevant because one of the translations was by stephen mitchell and i found myself it was a great translation but i've found myself really interested in the footnotes because he can't there may have been some other people but he noted several times quoted this Somebody called master sung son. Who i subsequently learned was a korean zen master who when he first arrived in the states. I was fixing washing machines but then developed a Songa in providence rhode island and now is worldwide. His quantum school is in. And i just love the the quote senate came across one that that said no south. No problem i thought whoa. Whoa sounds no problem. I didn't know what it meant. But i also note was jam. He fascinated me so much. These footnotes that i went to the library at uc davis campus shields library and it went to the card catalogue and looked up sung sun and discovered that in the dr day basement of shields library were rows and rows of buddhist books and i found his dropping ashes on the buddha but i found a treasure trove and i started leading mostly tree traditions zen tibetan and tear baden. I couldn't get enough. Just taking him out piles and That's how i. I learned a lot about the buddhist teachings but i thought what am i supposed to do and so i wrote just stephen mitchell and i don't remember what i said but i remember what he wrote back to me. He said looking at an painting of an orange is not the same as eating orange. And then he recommended to possible dharma centers that i could go to from. I live in davis which is near sacramento so that central valley and they were both in marin county bay. Area was john. Toronto sonoma's zen center. I think and the other one was called spirit rock meditation center and he recommended jack cornfield and i don't remember why i chose that have no. I've just been thinking. How did i get there.
Turning Your Passion Into Sustainable Work with Zachariah Moreno
"Hello welcome to go bam good morning. We're actually doing this during coffee. Time my favorite time of day. Thank you for having me. Thank you for coming on so zach. Tell us who you are. What's your heritage where you come from. I'm a mexican. American here in california oakland more specifically from the central valley of california grew up can actually west sacramento. You know went to school. They're pretty normal. Giant mexican family in california and Always had a love for creativity and art and different forms of expressing the that creativity so throughout my journey. That has come to life in a couple of different. Mediums started in kind of ink on paper transition to acrylic on canvas. art shows. Some awards wanted to do that professionally struggled to find a way to actually passion into sustainable work. Glad i saw that problem as early as i did. But then you know it always had an affinity for technology because of my my father's background been privileged to To be exposed to some technology pretty pretty early on and then i realized i could combine those two things together and make artwork and creativity with technology with squad. Cast is kind of the most recent body of that and that's actually another level of helping others be creative and connect and be creative with each other with their guests to record podcast interviews. That sound awesome from anywhere in the world. They do okay. So we're gonna pack all that story because this is what we do. So you're mexican american. Are you first generation. Second third generation. Right hey do how is that. I'm i yeah. I've actually thought about you know. My grandparents were barely born in the united states. A believe their family crossed the border into texas when they were like. I think my grandpa was actually. My grandmother was actually pregnant with him. when she came to america and i believe my grandma was a little girl when they crossed over into texas so work their way over to california and my grandpa was very fortunate to have an uncle who owned some farmland essentially in in the central valley here in in yolo county. They were farmworkers. The added bonus that he had is that his uncle rufus. I've never really gotten this full story. But he was able to own his own farm so he of course worked with farmworkers. They were out there in the field with them every day. My grandma grandpa learned to drive was he was super young was driving people back and forth from the fields and he's got gnarly scars all over his legs from like being out in in the different agricultural environments and walking around out there all day you know really exposed to that lifestyle and then became a sheriff's officer and later most of his career. He was a one of the best saw filers on the west coast. That's not a job really anymore. What is it at the time. These giant lumber companies would need these giant saw blades to take the raw number that they would bring in kind of millet down into usable lumber. So my grandpa started out in the yard stacking green lumber which is full of water. So it's incredibly woods heavy anyway but when it's fresh like that it's incredibly heavy so i'm sure he was pretty ripped back then he still is. He's in his nineties now. He's my favorite person and worked his way up to I guess it's kind of an apprentice situation where studied under somebody. He can take a piece of metal and make a giant saab laid out of it and Make that saw blade last for a very long time. And i guess there's very few people who can do that. He was very skilled skilled craftsman still to this day. Does a lot of woodworking and he's ninety nine only has he taught you how to make a late. He's taught me like on paper and shown me. He has a workshop that i helped build and we built in his backyard woodworking shop. And so does my dad. So this is what i mean about like creativity and craftsmanship. I think it goes very deep like my grandpa's. He's not a like a graphic artist. He's a very skilled technical drawing kind of pre autocad so he was What i would say is the first generation and my grandma you know to. That's how they match. She was one of the farm workers on his uncle's farm.
PG&E Mistake May Have Exacerbated Rolling Blackouts
"Morning. An error by PG and E last month may have contributed to one of California's first rolling blackouts in two decades.

would be Madera to Lasko Lasko I have no idea yup what a horrible way I knew what the probably not even bill back they think all of the changes that they've come up with could theoretically raise five billion to six billion and that would be given to metrolink in southern California and maybe cal train in the bay area wow what a colossal where did they go further naturally can Caltrain were part of the original high speed network we needed upgrading them toward ultimate high speed service would satisfy requirements of for the federal grant money and the nine billion dollar bond active away because rising I thought was they can't do this because well I say that not to get everything else is gone wrong with the but but is violating the words of the bond yet no judges ever enforced yeah any of the wording of the by now yeah there's roughly four billion to five billion left in the bond funds as the original near ten billion dollar bond act with it that they did go through half of it along with roughly seven fifty million a year they get out of the cabin trade money and no rail know what we have not one insurance railroading now and they still haven't purchased two thousand parcels that they need to were just too cold complete this segment now oh my god this is so awful going inside and some still do anything they just talk in the right up at work these are criminals how come there's no investigation into this I mean like a federal FBI trump administration investigation the department of justice ought to be in here absolutely thank alluded because that's that's about five billion they looted from the money that we agree to borrow and then there's the two billion that we got from the Obama administration at the total package was over three billion trump is holding back a billion at least two so they probably built around spent about seven billion already wow and there's nothing there's absolutely nothing on the ground no they're not just those big arches right

they get that six people a day taking a bus couple people stop off I think that's where other cities send their home was to I like this so this could there could be some real infighting now between and some Democrats who want to steal this money and then you've got the Central Valley Democrats are going to fight to do not get any money from a this is supposed to be built to the Central Valley right well I don't know what's the point of building it there it's it's not useful yeah it you're you're gonna have this thing built and it will never operate no one will ever take it it'll never make any money what I don't understand I don't understand why we're really fighting over it's dead everyone knows this thing is a corpse but they still got five billion sitting in an account that that that that they go to waste I guess the current plan was to build the system from Burbank Turner said where would connect with diesel trains to the bay area operated by the San Joaquin joint powers authority yeah we talked about that a couple of months ago that they have to use diesel trains this is really high tech stuff yeah it's it's it's a slow speed trains high speed rail authority quickly

"The fact that high speed rail is really derailed on the news some pretty much backing away. Although now he's trying to play both sides of the stories. We've talked about that. I'm not really saying. It's never going to be built dodgers think for now we need to focus on that. First segment, but for all intents and purposes, it's dead. You know, they're gonna probably to spend whatever money they have on this one segment, but the headline in the window times by they're they're pretty good reporter on this topic. Ralph is that the shorter California bullet train plan will likely run out of money before completion. I think you and I did some math on the air that day. Yeah. Based on what we could find out from the calculations and we knew this. Well, see that's the thing you, and I can figure out that it's short of money just from a of newspaper report all these other jackasses pretending that they've got plenty of money for this for this one segment which goes nowhere, right because Vardanian rights they can count on roughly fifteen point one billion to the year twenty twenty three to build the central valley system. And we knew well, that's the ten dollars from the bond on the ballot. And I don't know how much they're going to get to keep from the feds because Trump maybe looking to claw back, but they also got that cap and trade money the gas tax money that they stole. So, but the cost is going to run according to this analysis sixteen to eighteen billion dollars for the structures, the electrical lines the train stations the signals a heavy maintenance facility and the actual trains themselves. But of course, this is according to the thirties business plan, which means I don't believe it. It's probably going to be more than that. Well, yeah, it's it's going to be a lot more than that. I read the other day to that one of the reasons that they building in the central valley is that it was cheaper part of the of the route. It was a lot of it was on flatland before they had to tunnel through mountains, and then tunnel or lay down track through urban areas where the cost of the land would be much more, expensive and much more complicated. Because what's in the way? Once you get into the urban areas is all the sewer lines and electric and phone lines, cable lines and everything. Well, that's perfect. Because what you just said was what they wanted to do was start with the easy part and say, look folks, this isn't bad, but they screwed that up to write. This is also become an abomination, and according to this story, there's so much more land. They have to acquire so much more. They have to do. This is environmental clearances remain open. All this kind of stuff. See the one question that has been answered as cook. Could they be this stupid and planet this badly and underestimate this badly or was this just corruption? This was just a way for a bunch of democratically connected companies and operatives. To get a big payday. Yeah. Right. You get the door open to Bill is both actually I mean, this is so so badly planned and so badly executed. I think you could get a bunch of kids in eighth grade to design a better plan than this. It's it's comically awful. Now, it says here a former executive of an engineering firm that handled some of the design set it an interview that problems were dented years ago. But what do, you know, the rela thirty consultants didn't address the issue. They ignored it happened. But they were happy to get their hands on the money.

Do you really think when when they sat there at the table that they took any of these challenges seriously. Or just let's spend the money because then everyone's gonna want to take the money back. And this is a hell of a pay day. We're never going to see this kind of paid at our life. Right. And it's like you said let's start with the easy part the easy place the flatland without as much impediments. So we don't get shut down to quickly. Look like, we're doing something. Now, get the job going make it look like there's progress even that took many years to though, I mean God's sakes. It'll be eleven years this November since this thing got voted in by people. Well, it is fraud and it stealing money from taxpayers and the guy at the top was Jerry Brown, and Dan, Richard who is running high speed rail those two publicly claimed over and over again that everything was fine will conquer the challenges. It's not a big deal. It's all to be expected, even as they were omitted, even as they were admitting that the cost was going to be triple what was promised in the proposition, even accounting for what they would admit to which ended up being ninety eight billion dollars in their latest business plan, the potential for ninety eight billion dollars that's three times as much boggle your mind. Remember, the original cost of the entire line was supposed to be thirty three billion. Yeah. And says sixteen billion to eighteen billion includes ten point seven billion dollars of work already underway between Madeira and Wasko. That's our favorite connection eleven billion. Maybe that's all they're gonna end billion for Madeira Lasko additional cost of building. South from Bakersfield is almost two billion. And then north from Darren Moore said two point two billion electric trains cost a billion dollars or more depending on how many ordered holy mackerel. And do you see what they've they've built so far they've built this this raised platform for the train to run on the air. It looks like an elevated highway. This is going to be an elevated train. Oh, yeah. That's what Davis Hanson wrote about that that they look like some sort of architectural remains some weird those it's gonna look like Stonehenge. Trains are never going to run on this. So now, you have this big. You know, the stanchion sticking high up in the air. And then you have the bed laid down for the train to roll on a up there. And that's it. No trains are gonna go by it's gonna look like this long bridge to the horizon, the nowhere so Lasko and then for two and eventually writes about what's going on between Trump and California, as you know, the rail authority says not only are they not gonna pay the last billion dollars. They want to claw back about two and a half billion that was already given to the state because they haven't met the requirements they're way behind schedule the money and everyone's acting like an stories everyone. They interview this is unprecedented. This will be fought the state will prevail. The rail authority will prevail on these points. Really? I would think if you don't meet the requirements of money that was forwarded to you. It's a pretty easy thing to say, you know, not getting any more. In fact, you gotta give us that money back because you didn't meet your your duty. Why isn't there shouldn't they? There be some governing body some judge some executive who could say stop this. You cannot waste billions more of the taxpayers money. You can't do this. You've had your eleven years you've built next to nothing. It's a total botch, a total waste you. Lied. Like hell all over the place the premise of this was absurd. The premise of this was a big lie, and it's ratings really hard. So give us reservoirs with that money. Go dig some holes can do anything you get. I've never seen it. There may never be. They men they may may never have been anything like this in American history. This much money built on something that is going to produce nothing useful severest line in the story. Because in the end, they also times and even Ralph Ford obedient. I think they want this to work whether a bullet train confined to the central valley could operate profitably as required under state law. That's unproven. A ridership plan and operating plan did not exist. When Nusa made his decision and only now are being developed ridership projections just for the central valley segment from Bakersfield think it's about twenty five people on a good day. And that's just wanting one train they're working on a ridership projections. Classes so embarrassing is there anybody to club back Jerry Brown's pension money. Yeah. And you to give up everything he's getting from the state. Schwarzenegger. He's got anything. Oh, yeah. Schwarzenegger has some serious. Forgot about him. He was governor. When this started was a big proponent, he ought to be forced future. Yeah. In europe. I clowns. This is the worst swindle in the history. But we've been saying that for ten years, we told everybody this is huge huge mistake. People. Listen to us. Well, the listeners listen to us just just just listened to follow our lead. We know what we're talking about. We got a couple John and Ken KFI. Debra Mark has news. Luke Perry has.

"Deathrow was fascinating to me because they know how deathrow works and no one who hasn't spent time in administrative segregation or death row itself would know about that because it's like this inner sanctum sanctorum of the secret proceedings of the prison and i was stunned to learn that the women down there so sandbags for flood control in california so learning details like that for me seemed like they could have symbolic importance for letting people in the outside world know that this is a world and that it's very intricate and this is the state prison in the central valley yeah that's correct it's called the central california women's facility what lessons did you learn from them you said they were your mentors what are the lessons from these inmates that people might find surprising i think one of the most surprising things i learned was when i was trying to advise somebody who was preparing to go before a parole board and i read all these guidelines that public defenders had put together in terms of training somebody who's going before a parole board to exhibit insight into their crime and the proverbial inside is upmost important to the people on the parole board in terms of whether or not they think somebody is ready to be released to the public and i mentioned this to a formerly incarcerated friend like oh i'm helping somebody and i think i can really help them understand their insight and this friend of mine said to me if you exhibit perfect insight to a parole board and tell them about your crime and the details of it and what you were thinking of at the time and that you understand the horrific impact that it's had on the victims in the loved ones of the victim you will remind those people of every reason why the state wanted to lock you up to begin with and so what that did was alert me to this catch twenty two that understand.

"Central valley a lot he's trying to really appeal to a wide swath probably newsom has sort of claimed the the left flank you're also running gene kim's campaign who is a very progressive left is left can be san franciscan i'm just curious like how do you keep it all straight and and is there a through line because not all these people seem like they would necessarily agree on all policy issues nor nor should they and i don't think political consultants should necessarily have their own politics so i think it's very very important that they have their own values and that they pay attention to those values and political consultants are an enormous part of the american political landscape and not a very favorable or positive part of that people probably like you more than us there i think that we're we're pretty much down there with journalists journalists congress congress right and and look in the case of political consulting in a better world there would be less political consulting and that's a reality this too much money and politics too many billionaires there's a world in which oligarchs can write big checks and contri to buy elections and political consultants help them do that and there's a number of great things about political consulting and we try to help people who have never run for office before you try to help people tell.
