God destroy families with their but the reason that i bring it up is because it it reminded me of when i used to watch on oprah's network. There was a show that was about behind the scenes over the oprah show and they would pick an episode and then show how it was made. And you know oprah's whole mantra is live your best life like you could see from the the employees. Nobody that works for oprah. Was doing that like because you have to work. So hard to create this philosophical dream of and that's like with the coney island thing like they're creating family life and well. This is a metaphor for fricken. Everything under the sun. These days television instagram like. You're being taught to live a certain way but the people telling you that really aren't doing it everything. This is everything i know. But it's such a bummer.

She was starting to feel better and she was like whatever who cares like nothing matters. Let's just have fun and it was interesting that the same mantra that like put her in the dark place got her out because it's like a nothing matters so just like we had yes. Be happy instead. You choose what you can choose. Yeah nothing matters you wanna go left or nothing matters. You wanna go right yes do you wanna be mournful or rejoice visiting same thing with that creativity of the parts of your brain of like being open minded or close minded and judgmental calm place or being in that like reacting from fear or alert or terror alarm.

How the Post Office Grew America
"Story starts with the crown post post office of the british crown. The thirteen colonies were quite isolated and independent of each other. Few people had relatives or friends at the other colonies thus neither male nor good roads connecting them were important. Thirteen drivers freedom in how this letter was too many places to send it now. It's a different story in the beginning. The only real mail that was sent or received was to the uk but without a post office sending things and receiving them was problematic. The first colony to request to remedy for this problem was massachusetts bay on november fifth. Sixteen thirty nine. The general court of that colony directed that richard fairbanks has tavern would be where letters were delivered and picked up giving richard one cent for each letter. Managed in the new netherland. Coney the dutch west indies company. Who ran the colony made a similar determination. They constructed a box at the port for letters to be picked up and mailed but there was no general consensus or common interest among the colonies to take it any further and the only times. The problem came to a head as when the colonies faced a common emmy but had no roads or male to aid in their communication. It wasn't until the reign of william the third new england in sixteen ninety that any sort of postal system was established williams. Third had assessed. His call is which had now grown to two hundred thousand people and decided he wanted to have postal communication between massachusetts pennsylvania and new york. He had some roads built but didn't send money to do much more than that. But in seventeen fifty three all would change. Benjamin franklin became the postmaster for the crown post and philadelphia.

"A few months ago. I was talking to mary. Ziglar about amy. Coney barrett's mary's fantastic professor of law at florida state university. She covers abortion law and abortion history and she told me that she thinks amy coney barrett wants to be perceived as a serious intellectual that amy conybeare doesn't want to be perceived as sort of instrumental transactional votes dot republicans sort of crammed onto the court at the last minute to further their agenda that she is a really brilliant person who wants to be perceived as an independent neutral thoughtful 'institutionalised and for that reason she wasn't going to be in a rush to affect her own agenda which would include probably ending the right to an abortion. Now mary send out to me just a few weeks before. The supreme court took up a case that is a direct challenge to roe versus wade which the court will hear next term and may well use to end the constitutional right to abortion with a makoni. Barrett's vote as potentially decisive one. But i still think that. Mary was onto something there. And this is really informed my own view. I do think that barrick cares about how she perceived unlike somebody like. Sam alito neal gorsuch. Who truly do not care how the press and the public think about them. I do think that barrett wants to be seen as kind of professorial thoughtful. Maybe under but quietly brilliant jurist. I don't know though if that's the person we've seen in action over the last nine months on the bench. And i'm very curious what you think i do. Think that what was seen as resounding statesmanship and centrism was barrett's decision to write a concurrence in what ended up being a nine zero decision. That looked as though. Hey the courts not making any definitive claims about this balancing of religious liberty on the one hand civil rights on the other. It looked like that was happening. And what barrett got feted for was the centrist moderate concurrence. She wrote saying. I'm not going to overturn a decades old president. That's what she did. She got feted as you've been saying throughout for not doing the thing that people thought she was going to do and then instead of saying well. Okay as you're saying why was that strategic and be. Did she effectively do that. In the shadow docket anyway in the cova places. We're just sitting here saying man. She's no different from our bg. And i think that is a function of as we've said from the beginning you know the way we do confirmation hearings unfortunately on both sides is a lot of sort of sky is falling projections about what's going to happen. And when that doesn't materialize it's like. Hey maybe she really is for the adoptive same sex parents in this case which is like absolutely materially not true but i think that there is a very very cartoonish sense still going into next term when abortion as you say is on the chopping blog that if amy conybeare it doesn't right. The sentence roe v wade is overturned. She will have been a moderate. And that's just the way we construct the narrative around the court..

"And as you noted democrats chose to make it all about the affordable care act and say well if this individual is confirmed she could take away healthcare from tens of millions of people including all of these wonderful children and individuals who are so deserving of healthcare and. I'm curious looking back now. What what do you make of that. Strategy of that introduction of amy coney barrett to the world by democrats. yeah. I've been really thinking about that mark and i think in some sense. It goes to that predictive foresight and hindsight in other words. The democrats made a choice. They didn't quite know how to attack judge barrett. They knew we should note that from her confirmation hearings for her job at the seventh circuit. The federal appeals court where she had sat for three years. They couldn't touch a lot of the issues that were at the heart of what they were really worried about right. Which is her religious views and what she's written about the right to abortion generally but also just things that surfaced during the confirmation hearings about how early and often she was saying things like life begins at conception and how really involved she was both in a judicial project to say. That story decisive or president just doesn't matter so there's that she just doesn't have a lot of qualms about reversing cases. They weren't willing to talk about how she thought about precedent also she. She wouldn't answer. They weren't really willing to say. How does your view about reproductive freedom of and reproductive rights braid into the way you think about your job as a jurist. She had explicitly written about that right. We know that she has put that into evidence. Before dem's didn't wanna touch that either and that combined with the fact that she's simply wouldn't answer questions mean questions like very fundamental questions about. Can the president stop the election fundamental questions about things that totally orthogonal to her own job as a justice. And so i think all of that men that dem's were sort of boxed in that they chose to make this about the affordable care act because they wanted it to be kitchen table objection to bear it that everybody could understand. It's not complicated. I don't have to explain. Section two of the voting rights act. I can just say she's taking your healthcare away. But in the end the fact that that didn't materialize the fact that she happily signed on with the seven to two majority. That kicked away the affordable. Care act case. I think made the dem's look a little dumb you..

We spend a lot of time talking about roe and it didn't materialize because there was no abortion giving on the took it because i just think the point. Let's make this as a sort of leaping off point a lot of the things that are allowing people to say right now. Look how shockingly temperate and moderate and centrist justice barrett is our because either the kinds of things. We've been worried about all along barrett on guns barrett on abortion barrett on dismantling. The administrative state didn't really happen this year. Oh by the way they might happen next year and to because some of the things that we used as templates amy coney barrett is gunning for health. Insurance actually didn't happen. Is that fair. I think so absolutely. I think it's important to step back and say that. She has been on the bench for about nine months right. She may well be at the supreme court for the next thirty years and so the fact that we are all racing to take in a few data bytes and conclude that she is one way or another. That is our problem.

Tahinis Restaurants Puts It's Entire Cash Reserves Into Bitcoin
"I think is this. Is chris coney speaking welcome back so you guys might have seen michael salo over the news media outlets recently. The ceo micro strategy You might be familiar with this already. So i'm not going to reiterate. The whole thing is about micro strategy put in most of that corporate cash reserves into bitcoin and then they make a business case for that so yes. We all familiar with that. We were just waiting for that first. Domino to start hitting and snowballing to other companies which is now happening. I was just browsing the old twitter as i do and chemicals this tweet from to heaney's restaurants who basically have just done the same thing and they have this tweet storms. I'm going to read out to you as to why they've done. What's microsoft's don as well now to heaney's restaurants. I've never headed them. But as far as i can tell. A canadian based company is a franchise of mediterranean restaurants. So that we go thus thus who. Who's talking here. So if you want to follow these guys check the tweets out. It's at the real to heaney's which ta h- h. I n i s to heaney's the real to heaney's that's the twitter handle so check this out. This is from the first of december. This was yesterday at five pm. Uk time so it says we converted our entire reserves to bitcoin in august. Twenty twenty. and since then we've been ridiculed and cold irresponsible fools in our community our reserves in dollah. Tam's doubled since then. Here's why we continue to buy bitcoin forever. Time for a threat. So festival says right that they did in august. Why is it took me this long to hear about it. Have you guys head about this already. Let me know if you already had about this book. This is the first. I've heard about it. And that's what august. September october november four five months ago. They did this. Maybe they just didn't say anything and didn't wanna say anything but it sounds like 'cause we've been ridiculed for it. Well they must've told somebody that follow is all the clients customers knew about it but i didn't say that we got so he goes the tweet storm the first thing they say is our current macroeconomic environment implies that there's going to be a ten to fifteen percent expansion twala monetary supply every year for the next three to five years in breakfast or more assets are going to inflate. Bitcoin is digital gold. And it's going to have the highest real yield because tween You can't pick any more of it old. The other investments are overvalued trades bonds our ethical stocks are grossly valued. Gold is a shitty says shitty store value that debases by two percent a year. Gold is a twenty twenty scam. You'll see governments and institutions pumping it to dump on retail investors who are misinformed because bitcoin is a thousand times better across all aspects. All these investments have some upside and more downside. In our opinion there is no way for the average person to get an etch. Bitcoin hasn't asymmetric proposition. You can get an edge here because it has a history that scared most people away. It hasn't been embraced by all the institutional community. That's changing fast. Now if you confront run this will this shift. Then you have an edge. It's being traditionally difficult to buy an old people can't pick up the phone and buy it if you go through the trouble of how to acquire insecure. It's that will give you an edge. It has all the technology upside of apple. Google facebook and amazon combined from a decade ago. And you saw what they did over the last decade. I get tweet namik says bitcoin is the so. That's a that's a combination. The fast fiber didn't i didn't segment in the b- go twenty six as they go on. Bitcoin is the successful successful digital monetary network. If you come into it right now you'll coming in at least so you're coming in at three hundred and fifty billion market cap. And it's unstoppable at this point so it makes sense to be at the ailey to this threat. Trend bowed pony trend. No threat as the price goes up. The value of the offering goes up because liquidity is the value proposition. This is an example of something where the higher the price the mo- value. We get the more people want to have it. And the more robust against this is not true with a stock as the price of a stock goes up it dilemma from its cash flow and it's p. price-to-earnings ratio goes from twenty to forty to sixty to a hundred as with many things as the price goes up. The risk gets higher with bitcoin. As the price goes up the gets lower. It's such a simple beautifully engineered. Winder that doesn't have all the competitive risks that so many other things have because it is so very simple is just twenty one million gold coins in cyberspace which divide all of the competitors. Bitcoin is the winner. They go on by one or a fraction of one and as people adopt the network value proposition increases as the technology gets better. The value proposition increases and his people like get more productive. They'll swap more cash flows into it and the value proposition increases. They go on to say and essential banks print more money. The value proposition increases again. That's just an elevator pitch. The bitcoin rabbit hole goes a lot deeper. If you're interested dilemma. Let us know we would like to thank the cyber hornets. The honey badges the huddle as the maximalists the developers and the good economists without them we would still be in the duck. Educate yourself look is when knowledge meets opportunity also followers for some amazing content. So they we got. They don't specify in this tweet stone. Exactly how much money into has millions of dollars they put into. Bitcoin as reserves micro strategy did actually say how much they put in. All this says in the fest we is. We've converted our entire reserves to bitcoin. So you know. One hundred percent of their reserves. So i suppose that means more doesn't it. What proportion of the company's assets will preserve the cash reserves. They put into bitcoin not the amount. 'cause if micro strategy said we've bought five hundred million dollars worth of bitcoin and that was only ten or twenty percent of their their reserves. It would make me less than putting all right. So i think that's a good metric. What proportion of the companies reserves not. How much money do they invest in it. Because that's more this objective risk that the company is taking rather than the objective value placed on the stack of money right so that we got restaurants the next company to put all of the business currency reserves into bitcoin. Who's going to be next. Who do you think's going to be next. Let me know.
"coney" Discussed on The Takeaway
"How Americans should live their lives. So it it's interesting Christian meantime, the problem is as you mentioned, there are you know, a million Americans have been pushed into poverty. And while the GOP has gotten its Victory. It has kept its promise President Trump in particular has kept his promise to make sure that they seat as many judges as I possibly can they have done that but they have abdicated their moral responsibility to the American public that is suffering right. Now. How do they expect to stand? Maybe this is to Amy's earlier point that they're betting on the short-term versus the long-term precisely, you know, and and that's why it's interesting because right now based on this evident power grab the question is will voters respond with birth. Voters punish them and and we need to see what happens after the election. How big if if biting winds how big he wins and also if he takes back the Senate how big that take back is because based on that mandate they will now have to make a decision. What do we do to reverse this trend? Yes, of course, they have this whole eject Biden. I'm sure has all these things he wants to do but the question is will the courts to push back on those policy agendas. And if the courts begin striking down Democratic wage legislation, which is what many progressives and many Democrats fear that Amy Coney Barrett in the consumer majority. Now, let's say there's a new Voting Rights Act that will protect the right of right to vote moving forward will an activist Supreme Court go and do away with that then, you know, then what's even the point of passing Democratic legislation if you're going to have courts to suck. Making it all down. What is the concern about this word? Court-packing? Yeah. I think I'm not sure that there's that much of a concern right now. I think that Democrats are so upset at about the way that things have played out, you know, the the idea that the the Gorsuch seat was a stolen seat. You know that Mitch McConnell said were not going to confirm wage adjusted during the presidential election year. And then now that the Republicans are in the White House and they have the opportunity to confirm a justice during the presidential election year and they went ahead and did it, you know, but it was it was taboo for a long time. I think that there was a sense that that you know talking about court-packing might somehow hurt the Democrats in in the upcoming election. And you know, I'm I'm not sure that there's a sense that that there is much of a harm right now from talking about it the idea that what about term limits Amy. What about that? What about implementing or yep? Hitting the power of support. Is that something that Democrats could do it is something it's interesting because term limits too many people I was actually talking about this is my seventeen-year-old daughter this morning, like it sounds like a much more reasonable wage. Yeah, too many people, you know, the idea that you know eighteen years or so sounds very very civilized, you know, and then you would know when Justice was going to roll off and in advance of an upcoming presidential you need say okay this President would get depict the next nominee, but that actually my understanding is that it would be hard and Christian can correct me if I'm wrong would be harder to do because the Constitution gives Supreme Court Justices life tenure whereas the Constitution does not set the number of justices on the Supreme Court. So, you know, it seems somewhat counterintuitive that that adding justices to the court might actually be easier as a constitutional and legal matter than limiting their terms. Christian in terms of the way that what we know about Judge Barrett and I'm not going to get into how she will rule on a or b topic cuz we don't know how she's going to rule and we can't predict that off. The the question I have is how little we took away from her after these confirmation hearing she answered less than 20% of the questions that were posed to her. And I would love if you could help us understand that in the contract. For example, Sonia Sotomayor is confirmation hearing how different were the two. Yes. She was not forthcoming at all. I mean there were basic questions that she got as like his voter intimidation illegal and she wouldn't answer that when the reality is it is illegal. What what does she have to say about the peaceful transfer of power or you know other authoritarian Tendencies of the current president and she wouldn't answer those things. And of course the reality is that she was just protecting her own nomination because we know that the president tends to you know, not take kindly to people who Crossed him and so she was shrewd in that sense. But the reality is is that you know, she took part in this process. She accepted it for all it is for all his Rush. She appeared on the balcony of White House South lawn last night for what looked like a campaign event because Donald Trump tweeted video a video of it off and that's not typical or behavior for a Supreme Court Justice is yeah. It's it there are a lot of things that we're a typical about this process and the fact that you know, she kind of took it all in and she played along I mean she was in the middle of that super spreader event when she was announced for covet mean it just tells you something that she was pretty much in the tank with this whole thing and and I think people should draw their own conclusions from that. The the reality is that she is on the court right now. There are cases before the court dealing with this very election whether mail-in ballots will be counted well, You know it everyone would she be forced to recuse herself from those cases? She won't be forced to do anything Supreme Court Justices call their own shots when it comes to recusal. And the question is well Amy Coney Barrett Barrett do the right thing and and the reality is is that there's already a majority in the court that is hostile voting rights. The question here is well, she joined them or will she step aside and just last night. There was a huge number of opinions from the Supreme Court dealing with voting in Wisconsin. There's another case from Pennsylvania pending another one for North Carolina. And and this is where the rubber will meet the road and and what she does in those cases will be dispatched a demonstration of whether she is independent or not. And and I think if she recuses at least she will be shown the public that you know, that that the stakes are high in their own Integrity off. Line Amy as we close out the segment. What does this do the whole process the way that this that the path that you mentioned Merrick Garland and Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. And now we've got Amy Coney Barrett very contentious nomination processes and yet like as I mentioned President Trump kept his promise to the American public by by seating as many judges as he could. How is this changed the court for the foreseeable future. We've got about a minute-and-a-half to go. Yeah, so interestingly until before the death of Justice Ginsburg the Supreme Court sort of was doing actually fairly well in these polls involving public, and so, you know, my impression has been that when you have something like this the Supreme the sort of perceptions of the Supreme Court do tend to take a hit and then the Supreme Court you usually come to recover but then it will will take a hit again and but it will be, you know, the combination of this and the possibility that the Supreme Court could be drawn into election-related litigation. And you know, I think it could certainly affect the Public's perception and and you know, we saw this after Bush.

"The oath that I have suddenly taken tonight means at its core that I will do my job without any fear or favor and that I would not do so independently of both the political branches and of my own preferences. Last night Amy Coney Barrett became the 9th United States Supreme Court Justice in one of the most partisan displays of power. We have witnessed in the past few decades Republicans use their political majority to force Barracks confirmation before election day. So far sixty million votes have already been cast in the 2020 election embarrassed nomination process was one of the fastest ever for Supreme Court nominee lasting a little more than a month after the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg Barrett answered less than 20% of the questions posed to her during her sneering leaving many Americans unclear about how the new Justice might lean and frustrating Democrats who remember how President Obama scotus nominee Merrick Garland wasn't even granted a hearing the current team was the culmination of nearly four Decades of work on reshaping the court Mitch McConnell starkly said this on Sunday a lot of what we've done over the last four years would be undone. gamer later by the next election won't be able to do much about this. for a long time to come while Republicans bask in the glory of their third Supreme Court Justice in less than four years millions of Americans continue to face eviction hunger unemployment and a third wave of coronavirus off sections and Congress remains deadlocked on a stimulus package.

Senator. I just referenced the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments. The same one that you just repeated back to me that do prohibit discrimination on the basis of race in voting.

From a tour of swing states that I have conducted in person alive inspection I WanNa talk to you about that today as well. But first, we gotta get started with the amy. Coney Barrett hearings. These, hearings are designed for really for both sides. I think to play to their base to a degree but it what's remarkable is that a morning console poll which the media t take seriously so I think we should take seriously a morning console consult polls shows eight thirteen point shift in democratic opinion in favor of amy. Coney Barrett a thirteen point shift. In the Democrats who believe that she should be confirmed Democrats are now at roughly forty nine percent believe any amy conybeare disqualified to be on the United States Supreme Court end should be confirmed, which is actually a really big deal given the democratic talking points against her that have gotten genuinely absurd. And when I say absurd I mean she was actually asked by Maisy Hirono the dimwitted senator from from. where she from? Hawaii, if amy conybeare had ever raped anyone you you would like to think that she did not ask that. But in fact, Senator Hirono from Hawaii asked Amy Coney Barrett.

"When did it stop for you? When did you get the The bug as it were twenty fifteen? It was twenty eight. Fifteen five years five years ago. Yeah why don't you think about it like that? But yet I've been in the game is so what happened. I mean because you know was it. Was it like a Eureka moment because for many people they still don't understand what this whole thing was games about. Tell us a little bit in one of the things about Chris. Leads is really good at explaining simply finding so how would you simply explain this whole cryptocurrency space for people so I use Russian? Dole's right big rich Dole. The smaller one inside small on his side. Right so I have this little one two three that I put these together I say. Bitcoin cryptocurrencies and blockchain right. Those are the three big words thrown around. But the reason. I mentioned the Russian dolls and explaining to the SEC. He's like Bitcoin. The low one fits inside big Agricole cryptocurrency which fits inside a bigger calgary cold blockchain technology right so. Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency and cryptocurrencies puzzle because of blockchain technology right so that's the overview of how it all fit together so SA- bitcoin was the first the first example. A something that was digital that could not be copied. That's basically the revolutionary break-through. So if you think you know when all the file sharing networks came along the music labels lost their mind because you know. Cd's were great but then yet these CD copiers in your home pc see could copy albums but it was still you had to buy the disks and no one knew how to do it but when went digital it was an MP three file. You could just emailed you friends. That's the beauty of digital. Is that he just send a song across web. That's why streaming services so popular now is because it's convenient for the listener. Both the labels get to maintain control of the files right because before it was just a free for all wherever was sharing files everywhere. No one was paying for them. And that's because if something's digital you just copy a million times which means the song lost. Its value count. You can't sell it anymore. 'cause won't buys it. She has friends which is why you couldn't have digital money because if you got coin there's a digital file on your computer. You can make a million Kobe. Kobe scored and then it has no value. Because you can make an infinite number of gold right goes out. It's called in the ground therefore retains its value because of that. So that's that's the big takeaway is. Bitcoin was the first ever thing that was digital. That could not be copied. And that's how come it can be named digital money. It can be digital and it holds its value because he can't just copy and paste the Bitcoin so that was where it will began with that and everything exploded from that by well okay so it used to be really cheap like it used to be ridiculously cheap. We've said that every it was great in two thousand nine and add no value. Was you know didn't have a didn't have a price wasn't traded against anything so? Bitcoin is just to Bitcoin with just the bitcoin being passed around amongst in the inventors view like And it was just won't Bitcoin was being sent here there and everywhere until someone was willing to say you give the the Bitcoin.

Ten Thousand Bitcoins petits and if that person still has those ten thousand bitcoins ads. Are you like less like how much they pay pieces? Cause Bitcoin might nights trading it nine thousand while human bitcoin and nine thousand dollars ten thousand bitcoin ninety I don't to night. How many million ninety million dollars now granted? You had to wait ten years because I was in two thousand nine so if if that pass and if obeyed ten dollars bitcoin sound them till twenty twenty. That twenty dollars would be ninety million and not have to pieces. God now that brings me onto the point because rolling with you. I mean you've you've enabled me to to to learn and what I've come to realize. Is that most people stay broke. We came just going to say it a case that most people stay broke because they just don't have vision in the sense that like you just talked about the pizza guy. I mean I've seen Things that you show me where you know. Bitcoin is concerned and there were forces at work that that trying to shake your hand to make if you're holding bitcoin. That will give you full snow and ideas about what's really happening. Trump took about the vision. Because unless you're very clear about and have an understanding of what this cryptocurrency weld is about. You'll give you you'll sell your. Bitcoin says the price goes down right so without takes. My mind is the rural of fads in the business world. Psycho Tony's Tony's doing Amazon FDA or Tony's doing shopper fire to property always doing internet modeling almost like almost like the passing fads. The they come and you make a bit of money from him and then they go. So or Tony's doing four x four x take instagram so disposable right and that that's fine but some people. I had a lot of people especially when it exploded in two thousand seventeen. We're talking about it like that. The language was on now. Now Tony's doing bitcoin like as if it's just the next thing like the next fad to play with until it comes and goes and that's that's how people have tried it because it was like it was hard because the price was absolute mental. And then when pretend to know melody be Blah. Last that fad passed in the pocket. And maybe for the reason you said which is unless you really understand what is about in a broader context. You will just pick it up like a fat and put it down and if the thing that got your attention was the price going from three thousand to twenty thousand. Well then you missing the whole game

Temperatures down to the low to mid twenties could be breezy at times. Our next round of snow starts sometime midday Monday, if not into the afternoon with snow continuing an on enough fashion throughout much of the day on Tuesday before wrapping up late Tuesday into early Wednesday. Now that second storm system now only could offer snow but freezing rain, rain and. Sleet. There could be some snow totals anywhere between five to ten inches. Again.
