"Your show is always on my friend. And I was nine years old and privilege to live on the seventeenth floor of the towers condominiums in the very northern part of, of fake on a beach and saw that rocket. You sold that view, my friend. Well, it was it was too precious to, to watch live. I had a sixteen millimeter bell, and how it was it. Yeah. It was all all that a hundred miles away and the entire building shook taking. Wow. It was a million people. A million people watched live in person. And it was a complete honor, the serendipitous to be raised in Florida. My both my parents are German, and we my, my mom would take me to Melbourne, Florida college. Which is now Florida institute of technology trained, a lot of the technicians that worked around the complex, and we would go to FIT my, my late mom would take me. She was personal friends with them von Braun. And every time he gave a lecture I would. Sneak in here was standing on way, and he was really the, the heart. The Germans connection for the space program is in, you know. So blessed but the. The, the, the question I wanted to ask you specifically. What is this? Apollo eighteen it was was that film. Like the Blair witch hunt hopes gotta thing or what, what's your take on all that? I don't know Polly team tell me what that movie was about. It's it's, it's about a another mission. Right. Yep. I know the missions of movie about a secret mission. Yes, it was it was a secret mission. They were Russian cosmonaut that had landed on one of the told of the moon, which is very, very difficult and in secret. And they had gotten into trouble and the Russians reached out to NASA through back door channels, if they would attempt a rescue mission with one of the decommissioned of rockets. I, I don't know whether it was a good movie or not. But it's a great story and, and there is zero absolutely zero truth. You as an as a nine year old watched Saturn, five, go up. You don't launch those babies in secret. It. Sure makes great movies, though, doesn't it it it? It's a good story. Absolutely charles. Werner people get your book one giant leap. One giant leap is, is in, you know, all the independent bookstores, it's in. It's in the chains Barnes and noble. And of course, you can get it at Amazon dot com at at Barnes and noble dot com. Independent, the, the indie books folks have a website and, you know, it is a great Father's Day, present China's my father, my father, personally endorses. It. Because most fathers like that may have been around the Apollo landing. Yes. If you're if you're well, it's interesting, if you're over, if you're over fifty five if you're a dad, and you're over fifty five you were certainly alive. And, and the story has a little bit of everything. It's a it's an adventure story. It's sort of technology breakthrough story. There's some great Kennedy LBJ, Jackie politics stuff. So, and that's all sort of braided in there. And it's also a reminder that Americans can do great things when they want to it is also true, George, and I, and I was actually I, I ran the numbers on this, and I was surprised a little surprised, but, you know, if you pause and think about it, it makes sense, seventy percent of Americans alive today. We're not alive, when we went to the moon or they were were, they were under five years old. Jeez. And so, for most Americans, not even for most Americans for the overwhelming majority of Americans, it's something you see in a textbook. It's something you see a movie about in tenth grade history class. And so that to me was one of the reasons to tell the story again, the astronauts stories are vivid, but they have also been told many, many times the stories of the of the people just like the people, I hope read the book of, of regular people sort of called to do something they felt was a little bigger than themselves. We, we had to grab onto that story because because those folks are getting old too. We baby boomers have gone through some incredible things we've seen a president assassinated landing on the moon. We've seen other Cecil nations we've seen terrorist attacks. We've seen all kinds of things, haven't we, we have. But, but George, we've also seen the decoding of genome and the invention of the microchip and the. Computer, and the internet. So it's not it's not all bad news. No, no. We've seen some things you guys ran that clip. I was so struck by Kennedy saying, just thirty five years ago. We I flew the Atlantic my God. It seems like forever between Lindbergh.

"You know, we have heard from a few of them who are are are committing themselves one way or the other others, you know, at the the city and county level who do favorite because they've been told it's going to be some kind of you know, economic boom for their area. And I guess they suppose that they are representing their constituents, you know, as they should. But in our area, we've had some tremendous support from a lot of state legislators legislators who have written bills and throwing the support behind private property rights, and this abusive, imminent domain. I think it's really shown shown a light on the possibility of of abuse of them at domain, and so there's a lot of legislative bills that are going to be and have already been introduced this session that are going to really come down hard on. On that. And make sure that these kind of loopholes are closed and make it, you know, clear that private property rights and the state of Texas or something that we hold their and their. Have you had conversations with any in particular? Yes, Ben LeMond who was the Grimes county judge, and is now a state Representative has been he was a founding member of Texans against high-speed rail was very active all the way through until he stepped down from Texas high speed rail to pursue this office. He has introduced legislation not just about this high speed rail project, but about imminent domain in general. He's very passionate about that about private property rights. Charles Werner has been very supportive of us, many others. I, you know, I don't I don't wanna single anybody particularly. But there there are many that are on our side who have been, you know, very aware of the danger of these kinds of projects and who have written legislation in the last session and coming in this session to protect private property rights. Lots of tons. Never people take off into something like this. It comes with some costs. If you guys had any blowback of financially or any threats or any other software way are very very fortunate. And that there is a law firm in Dallas, he represented us the Beckham group like Beckham and Patrick McShane donated their time toward this project because they say it as something that is just you know, grossly wrong against their fellow Texans. But you know, there are other ways in which these kinds of things can take a toll time energy worry. We can't move forward with, you know, certain plans with our property we've been sort of in a holding pattern since his loss began the danger that you know, it would not we we would not get a ruling in our favor. You know, the the the that we were we we were sued by Texas until. And by a subsidiary that they invented called IT L. We've never even been contacted by PL yet. We're sued by them as well. So yes, there was a possibility that we would have to pay out hundreds of thousands of dollars. If the judgment went and did not go in our favor. County, you know, hopefully, we are sort of of the counties we were kind of right in the middle of that. And the the the decision that was made by the eighty seventh district court last Friday which ruled in our favor by saying the Texas central was not a railroad, nor was it. An inter urban railway has effectively at least four Leon, limestone and Freestone county three of those counties. You know, they they will not be able to use eminent domain to have their way with with the route through our three counties, and we're contiguous counties, so that's gonna make it very very difficult for them to move forward on their route. Without you know, property, owner cooperation. Land between the eight counties that stretch I'm assuming eight Kansas stretch out between Dallas and Houston. Okay. Well, anything else listeners need to know. Well, I'd like to like a word about, you know, this because he's is been the sort of of this lawsuit. And it's been an ongoing issue that has has pretty much defined our lives for the last three years..

"So he say the truck around. No, it's not that. I've got a boiling rabbit on my stove. It's that I've got a wobbly need eleven year old, and you know, mistakes mistakes. She didn't mean to do it. And some I'm good with it. But. Il on that. I got a couple of things I wanted to get into in one of them is this Charles Schwarzer thing, you know, about five Neff hours from Lubbock just above round rock 'cause you go into Austin. I thirty five there's a state Senator named Charles Schwartz ner who. Was not proven guilty or innocent. In a university of Texas finding a they didn't investigation about him, sexting, new new term here. Proud conservative Charles Werner, sexting with a UT Abebe UT grad student, and oh how much time I wanna put into that something that is on the stack that looks. Here's my thing. Lump county is crazy so far if you're listening in and you're just a dated a guy, and there are a lot of data to get day guys who liked to listen and just get some nuggets, and we're gonna get into vet school here in just a second. But get some nuggets about what's happening going on here on the program. I think that on the left in Lubbock, you could very will elect a Yugoslavia's on the right? There are a lot of guys who I'm pretty sure if David Koresh were still in this world would vote for David crash who themselves look a lot like David Koresh and talk a lot like David Koresh in. It's just crazy. It just seems to me that the time is ripe to begin to think about maybe third way. Maybe maybe there should be a prairie populist platform. I'm not trying to organize anything. I'm simply suggesting that for a lot of people. What is going on in the county Republican county democratic meetings is so far outside their purview that this is why a lot of people don't care about politics because it's not worth caring about what some of these advocates one of these some of these strong believers want to be up held. It's not about engagement to them. It's about win at all cost, and and lose if you must is it's not about what's doing right for the greatest amount of people in. I totally get that disdain maybe there should be a rise of prairie populism. I think for a lot of people to connect these two topics ago to talk politics is like thinking about the headache of getting a big ole handle. Bar on the bicycle down. The side of the truck just a big screech in enough going on kids involved with all these things all these things going on, you know, time to sit down and think through shabas versus Karesh is crazy town. Jerry won't give the last name Jerry in our anonymous mail bag asking do we have the firepower to get a vet school done? I think that what's the misnomer for me is how much Joe Straus. A former house speaker did on the vet school. How much he worked personally to get it done. And I don't know that you've got that commitment from the next speaker in I don't mean to be derogatory towards Dennis bond, and the presumptive Nick speaker of the house, but it takes a little bit more than just a let the house rule the house. There has to be leadership that's involved that wants something to happen of the magnitude of vet school, especially the magnitude that Jon Sharpe is put in before it. Then we've had your last week. We had present scuba neck of texting adversity on the show talking about the sort of. Firepower. That Jon sharp taxonomy is putting into this thing. But do we have the firepower to counteract in? I think that you have to look at this and go through a few things. One is to look at. And I get this question a lot. Why does Texas Tech one vet school in Amarillo? Why can't it be in Lubbock because whenever you expand out, and you bring entities in the Midland and bring into tease into Abilene in even El Paso in Amarillo. You get more entities involved in the fight Lubbock is it's too big a fight fight alone. In. So whenever you look at this vet school eve group in Amarillo called Amrullah matters in..
