"He got this Reform Party movement started back in nineteen ninety two he didn't win the election they came back in ninety six and he tried to run again and I think the Reform Party kept going but Pat Buchanan and it ended up being there of the candidate one year and there's something like twelve million dollars to spend the guy got one percent of the vote we have no idea where that money ever went are you trying to say ruin the country no I'm just trying to understand whatever happened the Reform Party yeah I thought early we did when we see we didn't know we did want to reform it that much I guess now we were ready yet and still were very much pro establishment and Chuck Schechner who was a reporter here at KLIF thing which KRLD for why I think he's I I think he retired but he was working CBS for quite awhile Chuck told the story was up doing traffic for K. plex and cliff back in the day and they're in a helicopter and they had a problem they had the land immediately and the pilot said should we go to love field he said no we got a land now that light means so the auto rotated and they landed this big field turns out it was Ross Perot's backyard that's nice think of it comes right out Rossi comes running out with a shot gun get that thing off my property yeah may the last part of heated what's is it one of his last big ventures he he Russ pros alliance poor when it they need to prosper junior junior last year I here's a mayor Eric Johnson is a great American and a great outside and our condolences go out to his family RT EDS ready for present a couple times the things he did in the seventies overseas with this the larger than life like the live great so from the mayor yeah you just he really knew him yeah sounds like it was just kind of pulling that out of his but there I think we would have been better off with Mike Rawlings in now problem I would imagine Mike maybe knew him actually it probably day yeah because once again those circles that you claim to run in course you would know since you claim to be in them I I you know I don't know why the mayor to I wouldn't know what to say I would need John circulated well those debates he may have cost bush the presidency now we really don't know all I know is what I've read in the paper Hey what you know Perot is five foot six museums great yeah that's what I would I would all my knowledge would have to go to that museum at that whole conversation would have to give it to my thoughts on the music and the Myerson the more really yeah now have you been to his museum row I've not been to the museum of is awesome I've been to the more before so yeah I was named after his friend mort Myerson sure that was ten million dollars that Perot gave to build so you know quality I have been to the museum you know what I got a drink there do they yeah get sloshed I gotta be honest with you I eat it there's got to be certain things in a museum like I love the Smithsonian American history museum I really like that I've been the multiple I waited went to the London museum of art or whatever the hell it yeah the the big one with all the the really big name okay well great now this one has it all they are dinosaurs

colony inclination sure it goes up at an angle kinda sort yeah not really what I need the you go back to look at pictures of yourself maybe you if you were in high school in the nineteen seventies escalators more in college in the nineteen seventies take a look at how you're dressed because that's what I think the museum architecture and Dallas city hall looks like right now I mean the only thing missing in front of Dallas city hall is a lot of **** carpeting that's kind of green turquoise in color I'm sad to see you stop on a man's grave like that I don't feel like I'm stopping I'm

"A week feeling like we lived in Seattle. Reins of biblical proportions. The sun is now shining in royse city, Texas, royse city, Texas. What did I say? Yeah. Well, what five four hours on radio? Now, I don't know why I miss this. But for those of you don't know today is fun fast day in ROY. Not green bowl not wral at Ray city. And so they are going to let see ten o'clock they had the run fest for five K opening ceremonies eleven thirty. And it's going to be like all day activities. So like an eye care for the kids zone pet adoptions, pumpkin. Patch parking shuttle. Wow. And if you missed the turn we could have cut the parking shuttles back here. This is going to be the only fun fest in Texas, where they bragged that they're gonna do mammograms and have a mobile blood Bank. You know, you just can't find that type entertainment in Dallas in any case that's going to go until like six o'clock today. And it's like downtown ROY said, we're going there next. Well, you know, in the old days KLIF, we would we would have sent Chuck Schechner gives live a wireless mic. Yeah. While we're changing all he could tell us what was happening over fun fast and ROY city that means set for the rest of you, eight eight eight seven eight seven five five four three and the sun is shining here today, this is actually nice now. So I said it's not going to rain again till Wednesday. We won't be right out. Right. Twenty percent of the time. Now, you believe him. Right. Twenty percent of the time. I got I got the strong family. This guy is like a self made guy that started Magna autoparts started in his garage and Magna is such a huge deal in the auto industry. Goodyear's bad years, whatever car companies went bankrupt. But Magna auto parts in a very tough business. Always seemed to do great that being said they've got to the point where they like owned auto factory over Austria. Or they farm out. They built cars for other manufacturers don't have enough space. They Bill Porsches their sobs. They're everything else under contract. Now that's pretty efficient because car companies often have factories lose money tesla. And this guy was making money any case, Dan Donovan said, he's a friend. Former employ. Friend and former employees to Frank. Calls guy genius said Belinda his daughter known boat worked for years of Magna, international vice-president, corporate affairs. So this is hard charging smart guy. Poor kid, my good and Belinda was rich kid born into everything. But it always amazed him how similar the the more. If you don't know Frank who's now in his eighties is suing Belinda for about a half billion dollars for mismanaging money. So I brought that story out very quickly. And then there's more details stood in the Canadian Press. He's now eighty six he always groomed blended take his place one day. But the court case is seeking five hundred twenty million American compensation and damages from Belinda and her kids in a two year old fight on control of the family firm. And they said the legal case if you read it is just a masterwork of paternal outrage. Well, that was my whole teenage years if you wanna see paternal outrage, but said Belinda has appointed friends two jobs at exhorbitant salaries. She shows up for meetings late or not at all. She uses the business kitty for parties vacations with her kids limousine rides expensive meals. She has instructed employees to sell off the company jet. Well, that would get you right there. Wouldn't it? Stole limousines off the back. Lot of cardio. Didn't star stolen their borrowed and starved starved of funds. Her her father's late in life business vision of transforming get this folks ninety thousand acres in northern Florida into an organic quasi free range. Beef cattle farm. What's ninety thousand acres worth in north Florida? Let's assume before the hurricane. Yeah. She's been starving. Dad of his money for his cattle ranch in north Florida. Organic though with for the good of technically if I look out there, Don, I see grasp between here and the Popeye's between the quick Arbab. Is that grass growing? There's organic been fertilize those it wouldn't pass this. Okay. Yeah. Okay. If you say so in any case, oh, and she closed the four hundred twenty acre golf course nearby and his listing at a discounted price. Now. Mr. Stronach himself was always hard charger. Sometimes he would infuriate the magnet shareholders himself because of the company's dual class share structure of the gave outsiders not near as much control over the company is he had not unlike the Ford family with Ford Motor Company. There's another magnet director who is now the dean of the school of management at Boston University. He said Frank and Belinda were both great listeners in the boardroom, but unafraid to let their desires be known. Now, I can say that in a way that everybody's going to understand that they listen to everybody and said, okay, here's what we're gonna do. Going on. Dad took magnum company. He found it in Toronto garage in nineteen fifty seven. Built it into a multibillion dollar global behemoth walked away from it two thousand. Hundred and fifty million bucks. His take not bad money. I would think in any case the new business model was not based on car parts but marquee thoroughbred race tracks around the United States trying to make horse racing. Cool again. Yeah. He opened a restaurant Toronto's Rooney's didn't last very long. He opened one call Melendez named after his daughter didn't work. There was a disco that he bought in the seventies. And went out because disco like didn't work. And he had a really high end business magazine that also closed now Jim Nichol who is a former president of Magna wants compared him to Thomas, Edison, restless, and ideas, man and every tenth idea. So he nailed it meaning nine failures one work now his most passionate deal over the past eight years has been the organic grass-fed cattle ranch in northern Florida his daughter Belinda hates it. Ninety thousand acres. Of cattle free range cattle. So in any case, so why they said while the dad has been dreaming of cows and electric bikes. Belinda. Got into cosmetic sector with an anti beauty enhancing elixir. Now. The plot thickens. You know now now, and that's almost like and.
