Eric Describes His Relationship With Running
"Is your favorite part of running and how did you start? My favorite part of running, wow, this could take days for me to answer that because not because there's so much about running that I like, but how did I start? When I was, let's see. It was the summer of 1976. I had just turned 13 and I write about this in my book, fish out of water, all of this is in my book fish out of water. I tell the story of my life. But I remember watching with my brother, I guess it was Frank shorter when the marathon in the Olympics in the Summer Olympics of 76 when Bruce Jenner was the winner of the decathlon. And it inspired me to want to run, but I didn't know at age 13. What does that mean to run? How do you run whatever? So a year later, when cross country when I was, I entered high school actually tenth grade begins in Danbury high school. It was started a tenth grade to high school. I should say at three classes because it's such a big school. So in tenth grade, when I was 14 because I skipped a grade, I was very young, but at age 14, a friend of mine, I mentioned him in the book, Luke benac. He said he was going to go out for cross country. And I thought, well, I always, I've known lukes in 6th grade. I was always faster as a runner than Luke by far. And I thought, well, if Luke could go out for cars company, maybe I should go out for cross country. So I went out for cross country and at age 14 in extremely worn out basketball sneakers, I ran the entire cross country season. I was JV. I'm not particularly talented, but I gave it the old school try and I ran the whole season.
Where Was Separation of Church and State During COVID?
"Person worship is just finally coming back on some major cities. And we're supposed to all of a sudden kind of say, ah, you know, politics doesn't really matter. Politics came into the church. This is what I always laugh. People say separation of church and state, not in the constitution, not in the federalist papers, not in the Declaration of Independence. It's nowhere. It's a single letter that Thomas Jefferson wrote to the Danbury baptist convention. Actually, assuring them that the government wouldn't come after them. But then I always laugh at people, they say separation of church and state, I said, okay, hold on a second. Then why didn't you keep the government out of the church during the pandemic? Why didn't it's true separation than the church never should have been forced to close? Finds lockdowns, castors being arrested if it was true, it was never separated for church and state. You know what they're really saying? They're saying Christians don't get involved in government. That's all that they're saying.
'The Geography of Nowhere' With James Howard Kunstler
"A time, we had small towns. And in the small towns, the town elders, they cared about creating there'd be a green and there'd be a beautiful bank building. For urban design, there was based on the human body and human scale. And once we threw that in the garbage with in the traffic engineers became literally in charge of all the dimensions of how we lived and the deployment of all of the things on the landscape, then we lost all of that knowledge, all that vocabulary, and we started making a huge number of mistakes. And we produced environments that just destroyed people's minds. And now we can see the result of it. You know, we're living in a politically psychotic nation now. After about 70 years of that, there's no question about that. I think about, I mean, again, I'm just trying to process this for my audience a little bit, but I remember when I was reading your book, I started thinking about this, I thought everywhere I looked, this is true. There were downtowns that were beautiful and Danbury, Connecticut, where I grew up. It had a downtown, and it had a Civil War monument. And it had some beautiful buildings, and people would go there from wherever they lived, and they would do business and stuff. And over time, the energy and the life and whatever kind of got sucked out of the downtown and they would create a mall or strip malls or whatever. And so the downtown fell into, this is my favorite gym kunstler word, decrepitude. Well, I didn't invent it. I know, but you're the one that popularized it in my mind. All
The Media Comes At Charlie for His 'Church and State' Comments
"I saw you went viral for saying something about the church and state being mixed together. Can you please elaborate on that? Yes, so we were interviewing congressman Jim banks. You should go back and listen to episode. It's pretty awesome. And he was talking about how the Biden regime is exporting atheism worldwide. And I'm going to read exactly what I said, and I'm going to allow my words to hold itself. So this is from mediaite who they said Charlie Kirk, the bag of potatoes. That's what they call me. Who runs turning point USA erroneously claimed the nation's founders wanted religion and government mixed together. They did. He called the siloing of the two, a fabrication contrived by humanists. Speaking on his program, he said that, quote, there is no separation of church and state. According to the founders, that is correct. And I said, quote, it is derived from a single letter that Thomas Jefferson wrote to the Danbury baptist convention. He said referring to a correspondence in which Jefferson a founder endorsed the idea quote of a wall of separation between religion and government. I said quote, of course we should have church and state mixed together. Quote, our founding fathers believed in that, we can go through the detail of that, the established literally a church in Congress, which is true they established chaplain's offices and prayer rooms and religious ceremonies in Congress. And so immediately the media responded to this never giving me a chance to reply. But there was one very smug person who's a professor from Wheaton college, which used to be a really good place and is now a complete woke and unfortunately increasingly godless institution, Wheaton college. By the name of Miranda yaver, doctor Miranda yaver. So she tweeted something at me. She said, good thing Charlie is not taking my constitutional court law course or else he would fail. So I responded, I emailed her, and I said, hey, do you want to come on the show? And we could talk about this. And we won't debate it. I want to know your thoughts and I'll tell you mine. And because I know a fair amount of history and you're an important person, you're an associate Professor of political science and you're supposed to be super smart. Why don't we have a conversation about this? And so then she says, quote, very smugly and arrogantly, hi Charlie, if you enroll at Wheaton college, you're more than welcome to take my constitutional law course. In the meantime, I suggest that you read the First Amendment.
Eric and Naomi Wolf Discuss Virtue Signalling, From Their Yale Years to Now
"To Naomi wolf. Naomi, I have to bring this up. You and I were in the same class at Yale, a class of 84, although you graduated at age 11. But I want to say that we were in the same class, didn't really know each other, but I say that because the first time I bumped into this kind of thing that we're talking about, I'm a working class kid from Danbury, Connecticut public school, suddenly among the cultural elites, and it was very clear to me if you were in the humanities, which is which I was. There's a certain way of thinking and that if you don't think this way, you'll be labeled a bigot or something. And I remember not knowing better kind of going along with it. And I remember at our graduation being told, oh, you've got to wear these two. I wrote wrote about this in my book fish out of water. That at our graduation, everybody who was somebody had to wear two ribbons, one signifying solidarity with the, I don't know, the Yale union workers who were being oppressed by the man. You know. And with solidarity with the idea of taking our class funds out of companies that were invested in South Africa. And it was that kind of virtue signaling was the first time I'd bumped into that, but it was really strong in the early 80s at Yale in certain circles. I know you were also in those circles. But it was the first time I saw that. And all of those people have gone on to be the leaders of the world. And I feel like they bought into this. And some of them like you were independent thinkers. I don't know how you have evolved. But it's interesting to me that you're willing to say these things now. I'm willing to say these things now. But a lot of people, there's still hanging back. They're afraid of something. Right. Well, oh, Eric. This is so painful. I mean, yes, there was a very kind of monolithic right on this. And that has only gotten worse and worse. Over the decades on the left, I will note respectfully that I think the right has its own form of virtue signaling. And I guess I'll also say that when it comes to things like publicly supporting decent wages for working people or publicly supporting investment in South Africa, ironically, exactly the kind of thing that is being constructed everywhere around us and discrimination society. I agree with it. I don't think that public support for a cause necessarily is the opposite of free thinking and classical liberal values from classical people. Right. Okay, sure. But I want to go on because we're getting into very deep waters that we need to get into. I am starting to look at I've been doing a lot of reading about how the Chinese Communist Party is influencing academics. And it clearly they've bought up along with World Economic Forum, any number of the policymakers that are implementing some of the most un American. Let's put it that way. Attitudes that you have to have now. Like cancel culture, totally un American, right? Very, very Chinese, Communist Party, right? So
Who Is Curtis Sliwa? A Look at the GOP Mayoral Candidate’s Wild Ride in New York
"I grew up in New York City. I was born in Queens. I was in there into the 70s. We got out in the 70s, moved up the Danbury, Connecticut because the crime, the deterioration was unbelievable and we watched the New York news every night. It was unbelievable. We had mayor beam. We had it was just like a nightmare. And into this nightmare, steps a young guy named Curtis Lee tell the story Curtis. It was a night manager at McDonald's in The Bronx. The Bronx was burning down at the time and in the 70s alone a million people fled from New York City. The biggest exit is a population ever. And rightfully so, gangs arson property values plummeting quality of life dismal. So I decided, hey, you know, something they've removed the transit police from the subways at night because we were on the brink of a fiscal collapse. So they were laying off a lot of civil servants. I said, oh, I'll start patrolling with a group of my closes at that McDonald's. We will call the burger boys. And we started to patrol this one particularly train the number four train, which had been nicknamed by the right as the muggers expressed. I thought I get the congressional Medal of Honor. Eric, I couldn't have been more hopelessly wrong. The mayor at that time, Ed Koch vilified us, called us vigilante, said we were the hell's angels. The police unions were upset. They didn't want us there, because they figured their furloughed employees would never be brought back. And so within the first 13 years until Rudy Giuliani got elected mayor. I got arrested 76 times. I got wooden shampoos, concrete facials, attitude, no readjustments. It was whenever you elected or in a changed all that. I always gotta stop you because nobody knows what you just said. And it's the funniest stuff I've ever heard. You said you got wooden shampoos.

The Ride of Sybil Ludington
"Night in question that gave civil place in history was on april. Twenty six seventeen seven civil had just turned sixteen years old on the evening. In question a writer came to their home to tell her father that the british had attacked and burn the town of danbury connecticut. The ludington house was located just south of connecticut. Along the coast from long island british. General william tyron had come to destroy the arms and ammunition stockpiles with over two thousand men. Curdle ellington had to assemble the four hundred militiamen in the county to defend themselves from the british. The problem was the militia had been disbanded for the winter and hadn't yet reassembled. The record is in clear on what happened next either. Civil volunteered or her father asked her but either way. Civil set out to warn the residents of nearby towns and to assemble the militia. She supposedly grabbed a stick and set up with her horse at nine pm with their sticks. She prided the horse and used it to knock on the doors. Of all the houses she stopped at all evening. She wrote around putnam county warning the citizens and calling the militia to assemble all night long. She called out. The british are burning. Danbury through the darkness of night she wrote a forty miles or sixty four kilometers. She took a circular route through the county visiting the towns of carmel mayo pack. Ken cliffs and farmers mill before returning. Home herreid wasn't just long. It was dangerous now. Not only were there loyalists in the region but there were british troops and a local group of outlaws known as skinner's plus. It rained that night and she had to do most of the rides soaking wet when she got back home in the morning. She was exhausted and soaked but she had done her job. The militia was assembled and they were able to drive general tyron back to long island. Sound civil was congratulated by our neighbors and supposedly by george washington himself just as a point of comparison. Symbols ride was three times longer than paul. Reveres she did it in the rain and she did it during the war. When there were actual enemies about paul veers ride was done just before the war started and there wasn't any danger from the british yet.

And just absorbing like everything that was going on and you know you see things but it was so normal you know again Just a lot of stuff was so normal to in you know as as this story goes on to so many layers to wit so many people so fascinating but it was just name a lifetime us you know it really was for me and my sister on the people we were around. You know good bad indifferent. It was just what it was. You know you ever you stay in touch with any of the any of the players. I know at the end i forget his name.

How you doing. I saw we have. Aj galante good thing. I finished that doc. A couple minutes ago actually before hopped on here for your incredible documentary. Right obviously yeah. The characters involved everybody. Yeah that's real life. That actually happens so yeah it'll be a fun conversation i think it one thirty with. Aj fucking movie. When you're watching it you gotta be like. This is fake. This is fake. This has to be fake every five minutes. It's like no way. This is real legit and foxing upset at zito for saying this. I would put it as a top five dock of all time. I watched last night two nights ago. And we're going to chance to chat with the gm and son of potential alleged mob loss. I don't wanna throw him under the bus it all. Aj galante will join us here about thirty minutes. I can't wait to chat with him. He's supposed to come in the first hour. Wrap portrait only kevin the first our. Aj's all man. I'll come the second hour. I can't thank him enough. And i'm thankful that you watched it. Aj and. i'm thankful that you enjoyed it. That's very nice of you. I saw some of it last night. And then i finished up the rest judges today because i knew i wanted to. Yeah you guys are hyping it so much i had to. I'm sure people that haven't seen it. Maybe it'll force them to see it or or they just hate us talking about it but hey either way with the show isn't it. What what you enjoy what we enjoy what. We're watching what we're doing. Yeah i mean as a host. I have to think about the masses that are listening and watching gay. That is something i have to do. I take a lot of pride in the ability to do that by the way better than a lot of the motherfuckers that go to school and learn how to fuck and do it. Okay but whenever something captivates my soul as much as this fucking untold. Crime and penalties. Doc about the danbury thrashers says it's for me not to spit my entire emotions into it for a couple of days and we'll have a quick conversation with. Aj galante probably go twenty thirty minutes. If you haven't seen the doc you're not missing out on a conversation of anything you won't be. It'll be electrifying bill. But you need to watch it now. Speaking of needing to watch your house game tonight and it's a big night. What are we gonna do. We bouncing back is the big ten still run through columbus. We'll find out tonight with the gophers coming to town. Aj hawk we will with ohio state going to minnesota to play the gophers on the road. Absolutely are not be making the drive or the flight over there for the game. But i will be watching on. Tv about others here in ohio. I thought for sure it was in columbus. That's on me. 'cause i put. It was on me as expected to know where it is. I mean a big reason. I know it's not here is because i know people aren't going to the game. Everyone i'm talking to. They weren't talking about it also. I know my brother-in-law brady is. They're they're doing their. You know the big noon kickoff is posted up there outside the stadium i think. Did they have a show. This past saturday did actually. I didn't see. I don't know what brady was doing. I don't think he was on it. Brady quit brady does what he wants to do. Oh i don't know maybe. His scheduled didn't louder he said. Now i'm good. I don't need to go zero about chopper. Going no fucking you. Don't be doing day. We do anything week zero right. I remember one time. I was part of the conference call. Corporate conference call andy One of the departments spoke in a said. We have completed phase zero. We are now onto phase one. And i have never asked a question and one of those corporate conference calls. That was first time i ever said. Can somebody elaborate. That there's a fucking phase zero that we can. I mean what does that mean. What does that even mean. Never got an answer. Got a pretty good pop the room but we zero is done now. We're in week one. Let's go do this thing you'll stay team. They can be good shabby on. I guess minus thirteen and a half minutes. Fourteen and a half depending on where fan dole lane lays out. How do you feel about this team. They are all signs pointing hammering tonight. I mean there. Should they have the new quarterback. Cj stroud is stepping in. I mean i feel like they have three or four four and five star quarterbacks on the roster so whoever's throwing there seems like they could do a great job receivers i guess. There are some of the deepest receivers in the country. They have a ton of stuff so you would think they can score points. I don't know. I'm not sure about minnesota. Who are they. What are they gonna all of the year. He was a freshman last year Last year. I think this is third years. I think it's draft eligible after this year. Who was there was a guy last year as a freshman. Maybe that made this same. What's is that him. He's the guy are you thinking. Garrett wilson are lava. there's i mean there's a lot of right now. I'm not sure. I saw catch last year. Out of a guy who i thought was a freshman might have been wrong. Maybe he's richard freshman sophomore. No yeah i think so. It was him. He's filthy that dude's hands and feet or a The his son is there to payton's old target hall of famer. Marvin marvin marvin. Harrison son is a freshman right. Yeah i don't. I assume he's gonna play. I don't know what the plan is for him. But i know he's a stud as well is if you're good to have like a west. Virginia i don't think know any of the players on the team and i don't live i don't live in morgantown i wish i did. I wish i follow the process more. I appreciate if they're good. I'd be thankful if they want a bunch of games that'd be cool there in a conference. It's about fucking break. Just like the big east. I mean now. It'd be time for west virginia to win it by the way because then they'll just fucking tear down the entire conference but is it cold to be the know that your team is just always going to be a factory that has to be pretty sweet. I mean i don't feel like it's only hasn't been like that. I don't feel like it was that way when i was there. I mean we were good. Yeah but i feel like once. I mean after i left. It seems like they don't lose the michigan. They lose like one game every couple of years. Yeah they once you start. I guess winning at that level. I think it doesn't recruit itself. The coaches will tell you they. They recruit their asses off. But yeah you should. Your state should be like the top three or five of every big time recruit. I mean yours has one point. Five million dollars allegedly in name image likeness deals so the coaches can recruit their asses off. Okay i appreciate that whenever you go to ohio state or alabama or clemson at this point. The recruiting stunned by national television. Right there on national tv every single fucking week and everybody says well. If you start paying the players you start paying players. It's going to hurt the recruiting process. It's like what about seeing a team on national television every single week with behind the scenes stuff showcasing their entire locker room every single day. Is that not helping recruiting as well or just kind of blind to that like. Oh no no no. They earned that they deserve. That's just a fuck. I'm excited for where college football is headed. But i don't think any of us have any idea right. Nobody has any idea what it looks like five years from..

"Oh my gosh. Hey man listen to this Last road trip. We were driving all sudden around the bus minor league. You're on the bus right. Said hear the Lights go on and there's picking up some dude at a truck. Stop in guys. Are like waking up in their. Like looking at like that frank by lois the animal and they're just picking up these guys guys you know they're just. They sued him up for one game. And those guys would go and they play. They get to get kicked out. Sometimes they get expelled from the league in all in all it was crazy. It was slapshot while we were seeing. It was nuts today. The owners have more emphasis on winning games or putting on a product. Like this big tough guys. Go in there and fight like did you. Could you tell what they wanted. What they would do is in in these guys would say to is They would sit there. They clearly wanted us to be in. That's a real thing in old school hockey right back in the seventies and you got the broad street bullies and that that was a real thing in today's hockey it isn't so much There's some level of it intimidation and stuff like that but it's not to the level of the used to be well. This was kind of the first time a long time. It was that so they wanted that but they also you know this is the lockout year. Nhl so you had nhl players. That didn't have a place to place guys are going to europe to play guys. Were finding these different areas. And that's how i came across danbury. They're giving me an opportunity to come in. Wi- can stay at home practice on my own home and come and play a few games. I'm like yeah. This is great. I a move a little bit in. Stay fresh so. I'd come back next season and be ready. I played a little bit and So anyways that trickle down effect you at nhl players playing in the american hockey league. You had american hockey league. Quality players are getting pushed down to the east coast league. And then you're having east coast quality hockey players getting pushed on the united hockey league so the league was actually really good at that time it was it was probably more like a a league up right because they had the trickle down effect so they had a lot of goal scores on that team as well. But they're certainly tough. And i think one of the biggest thing is one of my favorite parts some of the tough guys on other teams because again this is in two thousand four to five where you have tough guy teams will have one guy. One one heavyweight two heavyweights. I swear guys we had weird fucking eight and and that was that was not even including the guys we might pick up truck. Stop on the way to the game. They haven't played hockey in four years and they were coming to play there one game there. They've been retired and So what would happen is like. I play against the guy maybe in the ontario hockey junior hockey and i play against these guys. Were tough guys. They're intimidating they were bullies out there. Maybe they gave me some wax over the years and they were tougher me. Maybe i didn't fight those guys now. All of a sudden we're in warm ups in their stretching. The red line and i got eight teammates over my sores. that are drooling. They're looking up at it jimmy. To see they want to earn their paycheck and go fight this guy and now the guy wanted to make eye contact was mike. Hey what's up buddy little different now in these these talk. I felt bad for them because they were there in a job to do. But the appetite was never gonna be fully because we had about eight times more tough guys on our team the u. Ahl commissioner is a big part of this documentary and whenever he was early in the dock. And there's a little bit of a baby face turn for him. I don't want to spoil anything but early he was talking to. Aj or whatever you say. Hey listen to fights. Three fights is fine. Eight fights in one game. This was here these things. Aj game in the danbury trashes arena. Or whatever i game for this team's existence winger guy. He's talking about this guy legend. He's dumpy hugh shipley put into one person by the way love. This guy he said. Literally jimmy galanti doc. You'll see this before. The thing starts calls him on a cell phone. Somebody gives him a cell phone. This is as like the national anthems happening or whatever any answers and he looks at jimmy and jimmy say. Hey souza's pox dropped fucking and go ahead and what of the kid. So this is the first game of the season. First game of the franchise's existence. They're already getting into beef with this commissioner because the commissioner was all about to break loose and before there is even touch the puck with a stick. There's already too brawls happening for this team. In the way it was displayed in dock was beautiful. It watching it back for you rub. It had to feel good that jimmy told his kid. Give me a fucking goal score and then walk out. And his i thought was like mike. Fuck fucking rump. I need wrap on a team that had feel pretty good than a mafia families. I thought whenever as opposed you spite people as you feel pretty good. Well that's i. It's funny because obviously i. I wasn't a big goal. Score the nhl. So i think that's kind of the coolness in you mentioned it before like everything's crazy blows your mind how things line up things that come out. I mean the thing. I learned from the documentary. Even i don't want tip. Everything else is like one of the the wiretaps was was on the mascot scrappy. You know what i mean. So the most got is kind of how they got. It's just nuts. I mean you can't make this stuff up but you know i. I think that that's the crazy part is so. Aj was a new jersey devils fan right so he was at game seven and two thousand three stanley cup finals. And that was you know the best game of my life and so he saw that so in his head. It was at that. I'm a big game player. Take it. Because i wasn't you know for the rest of my career pretty much but Yeah it was. It's all good. I once i got one story. I wanna share with you guys. Real quick as slayers. Didn't it didn't make it in the doctor. I mean like i said. There's so many hockey stories. You could sell ours but So i had to like. I said get in ten games to qualify for the playoff roster so i would look on the schedule. I'd be like all right. I'm gonna go a week a weekend on a weekend off. So i would fly to wherever they were and meet the team so there's a stretcher. There's three games. Three nights friday saturday sunday. Three games and it was up in michigan. So my god. This is a good way. Could bang out three games real quick so i went up there and the next week was win. The team was having the first game against the adirondack team remember. That's the barry. Melrose steve levy team. They call them. You know he's being run by tony soprano or kind of. They felt poking fun at them and that was a weekend. I was not scheduled to play..

"What's up guys. Glad to beyond the you're listening you guys all the time to call you upper absolutely. Yeah that's you. I sent you a dam. Rubber and. i thought maybe a little bit uncomfortable. Donna good. I know when people don't know me they say rupp they say and i know people know me rapper. So we'll keep it that. Okay rapper. I appreciate that. Thank you for watching. Did see photo along. I have no idea why just like anybody else. We're gonna call it into question on whether or not anybody watches us. So it's nice to hear that fucking stanley cup champs. Dan berry trash. Trash does plus and talk. How often did you think about the danbury trashes before you film that doc did you look back on that time your life and say that was the most insane time forever. This needs to be a documentary. I didn't even know it existed. What a time for you. I bet to be alive rubber. Yeah no it was. It was not One of the things as far as the time line of it so i played in in their first season right in their second season After that season was that was the last season when things kind of went down. I was on the team then but i had some some bodies you know that was. That was some of the greatest. Have such great memories of playing there. We all got treated like gold and it was great because guys would go out after a game. We'd have some beers and just shooting stories and experiences right the things that we are seeing and experiencing those incredible and i those guys i stayed in contact with and they would tell me some of these things that were happening and then Then it kind of just went quiet for for real long time. And i i think it was. Espn magazine. a number of years ago came out and they wanted to do a story about it. But i didn't really know anybody else that was contributing to it so i'm like nam. I'm good like i'm just gonna keep playing hockey and whatever so when we found out that the galante family was going to be involved in this neigh- j. wise but yeah i'm like. Oh let's do it. And i thought they did a hell of a job man. I thought it was really fun. I learned a lot watching it as well but it was a crazy crazy. Time there in denver. So let's talk about the smart decision. You made not talk about mafia situation without you know heads up an okay from the mock smart roper. That's a very smart thing in age as big fan of yours. He has not seen the dock yet. He's watching tonight so he he's might sinaloa ignorant this entire thing but Whenever i was growing up in pittsburgh we have too. Many italians are an friends to many fucking too. Many italians were was growing up that giulio maroteaux but whenever you would walk into a situation me as a kid. There was a couple of times. I walk in. I'm like okay so there are some shit going on here okay. Like there was a bathroom. Maybe that was enduring a wedding for one of my friends. I was like okay. Probably not supposed to be installed here in. What's going on here. Did you guys know that. There is potential fool on mafia stuff. Going on around you. Did you get the sense like this. Feels like something much larger is happening or did you guys you say this is the coolest experience of all time. There's this guy who wants us to fight people. he's paying us bonuses in cash. His kid is a fucking legend. They're giving us everything we want or did was there. Conversations feels like. There's something may be happening here. That's bigger than what we can see that happen. We i mean. We're there to play hockey. That's that's what we knew. Knocking was surely different. I mean we're out there. And i think one of the things he notices. You'd sit there and you had you know aj and and jimmy. His father were up in their in their box. For games and guys would say. Hey rapper waiting to see this during the games. We had such a tough team. I mean there's guys that. I could talk to guys for hours about the the build team. Aj did unbelievable job with that as far as like put together a really good team but a tough team. I mean we had guys we had players who for the fans that are watching. That aren't hockey fans. I say there's like a an underground fight club in the minor leagues over the years and we had those guys and they all had nicknames there was there was brad the wing Oh yeah winger yeah. Yeah and then we had Frank the animal by lois. We had gone nasty morality night there. We had room in The nigerian nightmare nador. I mean the the these are real things and if you're talking about his play. The game is like this minor league heavyweight underground like the following afford these guys in what would end up happiness when things go against our team or teams would come in and they do something. I one of the stories was. Excuse me no steve. Levy with espn barry melrose. They owned the adirondack team. And these games are all the games are getting out of control. And i guess berry made a comment once and i talked to bury about this. Today i've worked with them since and we just laughed about it over beer. It's it's great but he made a comment like this team's being run by tony. Soprano a jimmy johnson. And like that you know. And so what. He ended up saying he was very clear. We're going to let this guy no every time we play the we're not. You're not gonna talk about us like that. So what ended up happening is like i didn't play every game. So my setup was i only had to play ten games planned the play offs so i was living at home. You know in in western. Pa and i would just come in and play games and that was kind of part of it too. I come in and they'd be like. Oh yeah we're get car. What do you want the escalator. You want the ferrari on my I'll take escalate. It's february court medicate so So anyways i ended up going in there whatever so we would have this stretch where They we we would play these. You know i. I didn't see everything. I guess is my point so when we were there and we go out and we'd have some beers and we're talking guys or just be like..

It's it's documentaries. Unbelievable can't tell. Mike about that in about ten minutes. I any big news in the nfl world that you saw that kind of piqued your jayhawk that we talked about here. I mean everyone still seems to be talking about cam. Newton i saw i caught a little bit of greenie are guy this morning. Get up and i think we're slavsky. You made a good point kind of talking about if your backup is unvaccinated and your starter is vaccinated if you're starter gets kobe that whole situation than you. Lose your starter and your backup. Yeah there's a million different scenarios you could lay out. But who knows what's gonna happen with cam newton go. I think that's the best part of the nfl. Everything is a conversation. Because it's the biggest league on her in the vaccination and the penalties at the nfl has put into place for being not penalties by sorry the protocols that are put into place for the safety of everybody absolutely by the nfl are definitely something that these players and teams have to think about like urban meyer get investigated by the nfl pa for discriminating against players that are vaccinated allegedly because he said something about blah blah blah and bill. Bella checks come out mansard if you didn't expect teams be created with the thought of vaccination status as one of the determiners of who makes team who doesn't make team with. All these protocols are being put in place. I think you're fucking idiot. You're i mean like the the reason that the business be who you can afford to be. Okay there is the nfl to a t. Be you can afford to be. If you're starting quarterback and you're paid one hundred million dollars and you want to be vaccinated because of however you feel. The team is going to dodge duck dip dive and dodge around that. Keep you in everything if you're the bottom half the roster though in. There's a decision to be made on whether or not hey aren't teams to be much better without unvaccinated players which is phone calls being put into place basically to say that like guys are going to get cut because of that but that is just something that has to be understood and i appreciate the nfl pa. He can't do that and gone to bat for and everything like that. But this is pretty obvious. I think immediately protocols being put in place that these decisions made. I thought personally. I guess everyone probably assumed yeah. This will look at this when they're trying to make their final roster and you're trying to sign free agents whoever it may be but i'm sure they probably thought like no one's gonna talk about it. They doing their job. They have to do this. But i don't think any. Do you think it's incomes of it. Them investigating urban key. Ain't fucking stinks. We all agree with that. But i guess. I do appreciate that. They are looking into it. Because once you can even though you're gonna have to look into every other decision it's bait for everybody that gets cut that is vaccinated and then it's like. How do you determine whether or not that was the sole reason why somebody was made the team or not team. It's just not going to be the even urban syndicates. Never going to be the sole reason. Someone's going to get cut but it's definitely gonna play it's going to be a factor in when you're talking about those bubble guys to a we don't like you may be active this week not acted that you. There's a lot of guys that kind of sit on that line where they don't know going into each game if they're going to be active they're going to be playing or they're going to be one of the guys that doesn't get to dress come game day to it all plays into it so for people to be surprised that it. It was a factor. I mean that's just naive. I think people are pissed about it because it gives them a reason be pissed off. But i'm happy for us to get through this time and get to the fucking regular season which burr means september means regular season. Starting in before we talked to rubber. You know the danbury thrashers and stanley cup champion had an interesting conversation. Last night actually called you talk to you about. You didn't answer i caught. Cfo talk to him about it. He didn't answer. Jeez what they called like right it. Go between like seven thirty and nine something. It's you know it's the the the danger zone in our house. That's when you try to get people to bed and try to get everything situated..

"That's a year from now and we have to talk about it. His ships talk about. I think it was nato. David brought up to that sense. He's got there. The steelers have gotten back up into the top ten and obviously like the sum is greater than like a single guy on defense. But i'm sure he uses that as a bargaining chip and takes a lot of pride in that it's like. Hey we've been back to the steelers defensive past sense. I got here every year. And i've done nothing but continued to perform for you guys and mingka tj or going to reap the benefits of that before anybody else. It seems like it's there. He becomes defensive. Mvp conversation fresh out of miami or whatever and he starts dominated he got into a fight with chase klay. Poll was it yesterday today. Two days ago. I believe boys a fired up any video or even still shot so this one now we have no video leads. Pfizer feels like the videos are done at these teams to shut in these videos down. Don't well it's smart by the way. I think that you should let nothing out. I think about it. You think our commissioner pat once guys punching each other in the head sometimes bare fist on helmets when all we do is talk about safety and players safety and they say like oh we can't. We can't play in pads anymore. Why are you guys punching each other in a head every other day in training camp he. Why are you allowing joint training camps if you why are you even allowing because it seems like those are just a recipe for a brawl there the danbury thrashers joint training camps or the trash. That's exactly remember a couple years ago when the floor came into green bay. I don't know what team it was. They had a joint practice with. Aaron had some public comments afterwards. I believe the first play of scrimmage the first play of team they did their tight end got blasted over the middle got hurt and kind of started already. Yeah i mean. It's i don't know how it is in abroad every single time and it has become that by the way every single time. I wonder how long those joint training camp practice. 'cause you've got teams fighting each other because they're sick of running into each other. You got minkin chase klay pool two very important pieces at a steelers fighting each other football. There's a chance that you know when you're on your face into people or somebody feels disrespected with a shot like all. My career could be changed. My livelihood could be changed. There's a chance to fight whenever you start adding in the other. And i don't want to take step backwards because we're pass training camp but i still don't know how joint training camp practices don't end in a brawl every single time. Let's move on Fits magic is officially starting quarterback for the washington football team. I saw this was actual news. We didn't we didn't know wasn't really a competition. I mean heineke got a pretty nice little contract and heineke boss actually. Today was due. To the eight yard touchdown run. He had against the bucks. That play came back into the time line. And i'll tell you what what i saw him. Dive in that part of the pylon. It was hard not to think. Well maybe heineke he could do it. But yeah to your point i. It was always assumed fits. Magic was going to be the guy over there. heineke got a nice contract but So did he did bigger. That's that's an awesome thing that always gets left out of those congress paid heim key what they pay him for. If they don't want to be the guy was like did they. Pay fucking fits more on the they did okay. So they want him to be the guy more and he's spits magic and he's basically an adult version of heineke. Okay so you don't think that's going to be the way it is. I just love whenever some of this shit. It's did not somebody did not see this one time and it's like i thought we. I thought that was pretty much a so. It'd be it'd be big news. If we found out ryan. Fitzpatrick was not the starter in washington news. That'd be huge. Deuce and fitz magic tortoise. What beggars can't be choosers. He'll go fuck it wherever a great team in washington that squad could go on quite run over there in the nfc east which has massive question marks on the ravens had converted six point five million dollars ronnie stanley salary into a signing bonus to create five point. Two million dollars offense lineman ronnie stanley's base salary six point. Five million of it was moved into assigning credit. Five point two million in twenty twenty one mike evans in the buccaneers did this just yesterday. I think whatever you're trying to together your roster you're realizing we might have to bring in somebody from outside. Who might be worth a little bit more money as opposed to just the bare minimum that we were able to get by with creating more room for the roster. This is smart. This is the future. Everybody's going to be doing this. This just seems inevitable that there's going to be salary cap gymnastics to every single year from this point forward. I mean this is kind of been going on for a while. Hasn't it just happens more often. Now it's higher proof. It's bigger money being moved around. So is that why it's talked about more. Was this always happened. If he didn't talk about as much what is it. I don't think it was happening and tom brady. Did it with the patriots for a long time. But everybody said tom brady. What a hero instead of getting twenty million twenty though this year pass braced. Tom brady was doing it in new england though has been for a long time. They're always like always taking pay cuts a remain there taking a pay cut to remain there and it wasn't really a pay cut as much as it was transferring money in moving the money now teams seen not only that work but they're doing it with a lot of different players the way they're setting up their contracts. If feels like it's only a matter of time before everybody's doing this in this feels like the future mike. Greenberg down there in tampa feels like he is the future of how. Nfl teams are going to be put together and created. They're going to have to do a lot of movement salary cap. Jim nasty to make sure they can fit. All their superstar players joining us. Now is superstar player. We thought maybe he was going to be the kicker for the lions just yesterday but now they've signed austin siebert ladies and gentlemen pro bowl tight end legend for the detroit lions.

"The bullshit media facade that they have to put on all the time but it just goes back to. I mean we get six or seven guys. Who probably aren't going to make the team. And i think at this point it's just like i'm just not especially if you're not a cowboys fan like i'm not invested in those stories or those guys in any way shape or form. I wanna hear mike mccarthy in a meeting room dropping thirty f bombs about why he's pissed off about certain things it just what they choose to show because we know they film all week too so what they choose to show has just been very interesting the last few years. Yeah i think so. I in thai is our resident film and everything critic or wants to school for that. Then yeah to judge in you know belittle but basically call into question decisions that are made by these people who have these monster budgets to create content. And i think hard knots for me was always an incredible inside. Look into facilities. That i wasn't able to play it right so i wanted to see how cincinnati bengals. I still remember it like it was yesterday. If you go to training camp with the cincinnati bengals every single day dawn. They ring that alarm or whatever and everybody has to be up. And i'm like okay happy. I'm not a fucking bangel. And then it goes through the entire building and everything like that and how they operate. I think that is what hard knocks has always been but in this world of content. Now it's like. I feel like we learn more via twitter accounts from teams that would do from hard knocks and however and we appreciate. You are not so everything you've done it seems like you have lost your fastball completely. But we appreciate the time. You're on the mound allowing us to watch things that we were never able to see before now social media is just completely cox you pretty much. This kind of what is happening. Hard knocks but mike mccarthy in that dress shirt night whenever he started dancing in there you boy head coach start talking. I love that his little motivational speech for the last fly around. It's always good to hear little yinzer in jerry jones at the end selling what burger after berger's already become a sponsor tale hume. How many times. I send you give me. Fluck waterberg pissed it on the spot. There is like okay. This is a what. A burger representative a representative. They have paid a certain amount of money. In jerry's obvious sent me five times five times. I'll make a week. They'll get water. i like it. The original warmed up. Jerry said just listening to jerry. Sell water burger on how appreciative. He was of their sponsorship watching why he is a business. Mogul was fucking amazing to me by the way that was during the credits. Rask's exact for quick that son of a bitch in the middle of the. I want twenty minutes jerry. Jones sellin fucking water to a well. I want to see jerry. Jones selling ice to and you it. That's what i want to see. I don't get to see that ever. And i think that's real hard nuts potentially miss we more week though. Maybe they'll be able to make that happen zito. You said you have something to say what's going on. I know was a makeup just for mcdonald's in that second episode a first episode because there were so pissed off that they line up adding anything like the salt. That's how i took that. Yeah i'll i like it a region exactly yeah. I don't like it. Warm out like i don't need to dump fucking what five. How many kelly until one. How many how many milligrams sodium do i have to put on two bottles three bottles or sound i. Yeah that might be the case i. I did enjoy that. Mcdonald's mic griddle. In the first episode but water burgers who we find. John's town digs the pittsburgh steelers. Nobody's talking about their team. Really after the cuts have been made feels like everything's under control over there a little bit worried without quiet. Everything's been outta steelers camp. The only thing we've really hard juju dune a milk crate challenge and potentially upsetting everybody in pittsburgh but no real conversation about a lot of these teams after they get down to fifty three boss. Yeah the the local media mostly talking about how to rookies might be starting on the line so that is still the number one concern going into the season but they did cut longtime long snapper of the steelers and signed christian coons. Who is a former duquesne duke. So it was a great day to be a duke yesterday. Getting him on team. I saw you instagram story. That i tried to yesterday like. Let's not celebrate. You thought about that as you like an hour after posted. I was like i shouldn't have done that. Yeah literally as. I was looking at your congratulations to this guy on instagram. I typed up a response to you. I let's not fuck celebrate through soon here but it has a great day to be a do normally if they're gonna keep a long snapper After training camp that is a position that they're not just going to sub out. Because there's a lot of obvious you know ebbs and flows in chemistry that needs to happen. They're speaking of. Let's talk about the big story. Line out coming out of yesterday. The fifty three man roster is being created around the nfl. Not just matt jones. That was the big story But the internet went by anna land. Because the detroit lions currently have zero kickers on the roster and basically zero wide receivers off mercy thing campbell. Released boats are kickers randy bullock and zane solace leaving them without turning on the roster tweets adam schefter and everybody else around the internet football world. I think this is a fascinating thing. Because the world sees no kicker on the roster and you hear dan campbell say we're going to non kneecaps and change the way things are done. So you have yourself motorcycle. Dan campbell thinking about just going with your. Oh kickers thinking about changing the game completely. Are.

Rubber joins us fresh out of the documentary untold crimes and penalties that dan berry trash is a hell of a story that involves mob bosses in john. Sina and i mean everything you could think of to make a great documentary mike rupp stanley cup. Champion stops by chat with us as does tj hopkinson of the detroit lions. I mean today's an average day. I think i think today you're going to say not a bad show. And if you do say that by the end of it please be affront tele friend if not just act like it never fucking all. Let's get to it. We are in september and that means one thing and one thing alone. There are eleven other months in some other months have nfl football. What september means though is that. Nfl football is about to be propelled into our lives now. Football is about to take over the world. Nfl football is eight days away. In the fact that it's a timber should make us all excited for everything that's in store for us as sports fans. I met my house but the toxic table is in the studio downtown indianapolis just yesterday at boston. Connor learned that the mac jones era has officially gone into england. Tie schmidt is looking for another season of the green bay packers having success after an offseason riddled with remind. Controversy at tone digs the kelvin. Cowboy's hat is fitting a little bit tighter because his brain is so big from the heater. He's been on gambling and hammer down. It's a beautiful thing. September first and. I'm so thankful that you all are here at boston. Connor twenty four hours removed from learning that mac. Joan sir back joe mack. Jones starter This particular season at boston. Connor has the high in the buzz of the basic body. Having young quarterback being your guy for the next ten to fifteen years maybe has offer you riding high. Absolutely not pay. You said it's been twenty four hours of might as well have been twenty four minutes. Because i still feel as though i'm having an out of body experience realizing that the patriots dynasty is back on seven nine one. Your i felt like a billionaire. Who lost all my money overnight with one football season now all of a sudden it feels as though you know brady is decades away from being removed from the patriots. And it's the mac jones baby. We are flying high and we will continue to fly high especially when we start the season. Ten enough okay. So i ask the people on the internet both on my instagram. Which i'm three thousand away from a million on no big deal. I mean i think that's kind of a big deal for the people that love instagram. Absolutely if you didn't use dude so much to you'd be like one five by now. I don't know exactly what that means. What does that mean to believe. You're dude comments. Were being remember. Believe probably would have been there couple of days ago. I guess if the nfl or dude. Got meal native from comments section. But i don't do the instagram that much strictly because a more of a writer than a photographer so twitter has always been my weapon of choice. I've always enjoyed it. I've always dived into it a bit more. I've invested more into it. I spend a lot of time on it but instagram has become a place that i've enjoyed this filters have made me look more attractive. I think that's maybe why near a million but all of you guys. Incredible electricity has obviously helped us. Everywhere at tie schmidt before we dive into the greatest documentary i've seen untold crimes and penalties about the danbury trash irs in the galante family that i don't know how i didn't know this family exist or this team existed. Cfo fill by the way would have been a perfect thrasher. He should have been a danbury trashy. I'm not sure that we knew this existed but if during the time we did now i would have been doing everything in my power to drive. Cfo film maine's ask the in berry and become a member of that. Goon squad that beat the shit out of every body underneath the mall. Bosh jamica lante and his son. Aj allante who did a fantastic job building at ti and talked about enough. There broke some rules. They gave bonuses because they cared about their players. More than anybody else in before we dive into that tie. I wanna ask you hard knocks dunk. It did why is that. I watched hard knocks this morning. I missed it last night. We should have been hyping that up a little bit but a we at the time now with all the teams doing their own basic hard knocks and kind of getting a see all this content that we never were able to see before what hard talks was introduced. We never really got to see the behind closed. Doors that team meetings the the relationships and everything like that do you think. Hard knocks is a victim of circumstance. Now that everybody has the access and ability to see how every building operates. Because i watched it. And i don't know if this is the last episode or not. I watched this morning and it was incredibly underwhelming in my eyes. Don't you think so. yeah for sure. I think there's one more episode. But i think a big part of it is that you want to find stuff like inside. Looks at your team. You can just go to the team website or twitter instagram. You can find that stuff. But i think they're still was like you're not. You're not hearing coaches and players and guys you don't really know like drop f bombs and super competitive on the field and that's what i feel like hard knocks used to have that like the production. Quality was so good. And but it seems like really sense like rex. Ryan was on there and he just blew up big time like they've been so selective with the editing like we get such a small glimpse of mike mccarthy and jerry jones and like these figures who we really really want to get to know more. That's not just the bullshit media facade that they have to put on all the time but it just goes back to. I mean we get six or seven guys. Who probably aren't going to make the team. And i think at this point it's just like i'm just not especially if you're not a cowboys fan like i'm not invested in those stories or those guys in any way shape or form. I wanna hear mike mccarthy.
The History of Grand Central Station
"On a snowy january morning in nineteen o to a train operator entering midtown manhattan missed the stop signs. The train pummeled into a danbury express train on fifty sixth street the collision killed fifteen people on impact. At least forty more passengers were bruised and burned and two died within a week at the time it was the worst train accident in new york city. History there had to be a solution for the smoke from the train. Steam engines that fog the tracks. The new york central railroad's chief engineer william j. wilderness. Had a solution while the phrase lightbulb moment may not have been in the popular lexicon yet wilga said his inspiration came to him quote in a flash of light. It was the most daring idea that ever occurred to me. We'll just wanted to demolish the existing grand central depot and swap out all the stations steam powered trains for electric ones. Getting rid of the noxious fumes would help. Train operators see their path ahead. They could even run underground more tracks beneath the surface. Meant less need for bulky. Train sheds on street level. We'll just figured the leftovers space could house retail businesses and encourage private development. He envisioned the new station as a so-called gold mine and he was right today. Grand central terminal is a bustling masterpiece spanning forty eight acres and forty four platforms in the heart of manhattan. It's one of new york's biggest architectural gemstones and arguably one of the most majestic transportation hubs in the world but any building with so much money traffic and history as its fair share of

Which is americans inability to understand or communicate about race and this is where vote. He comes in so help in such a helpful way. We've all talked about this. And they use the most effective tool imagine. Which is they call you a racist and they think you're gonna shut up and so i'll stop there. But that's kind of where i started encounter. That's very important that will come back to that theme of how the card that is really dropped on the table as that of racist if you even dare oppose critical race theory. Woke this intersection. -ality eric how did you start to see these issues. These subjects crop up. When did this. I catch your attention as well. Probably when i was an undergraduate at yale in the early nineteen eighties. I know look young. But i was there. And the fact is that i grew up in a working class home in danbury connecticut. My mom and dad are european immigrants. My mom came from germany which became east germany so she was under stalinist communism and was so grieved by it that she escaped east germany at age seventeen. My father was in greece when the communists tried to take over that country following world war two so my parents without even trying very hard raised me to hate communism and understand. It is evil. So when i got to yale i was astonished. Suddenly be around the cultural elites who were basically anti american anti christian. And it's when. I first began smelling this stuff but i was too young and naive to really understand how bad it was and in my book which was flashed on the screen published by salem books. Because they'll publish. Anything i have to say. That's only half a joke because a lot of other people won't publish some good.

Millions of Americans Don't Think Biden Won the Election
"Course people are going to getting prepared for the inauguration of someone that millions of americans. Don't think actually won the election. which is problematic. Is it fair to say that. that's problematic. Is it fair to say that we can say that it's problematic and then be demonized thing that it's problematic. This is where we are in america because my parents have seen communism upfront raised me. I write about this in my upcoming book. Fish out of water. That's coming up in In two weeks or less. Actually it's coming out in vicente water. A search for the meaning of life talk about being raised by parents in the shadow of world war. Two all of their memories of growing up of my mother and father lost their fathers when they were ten years old. My dad did my mom. Did they grew up during the war. They saw communism up close They saw the evil of communism a closer. They raised me differently than most americans were raised. And i noticed this growing up when we moved to danbury connecticut. When i was nine we i noticed that all these american kids that i went to public school with because before that i was in a parochial school greek orthodox school where all the greek kids there was a similar sense of the evil Whether the ottoman turks Oppressing degree for four hundred years or whether it was the communist The civil war with the communists right after world war two they all had a sense of evil of communism and that there's evil in the world that we had to be vigilant about america and liberty. And when i moved to danbury connecticut which i write about in fish out of water i noticed that the the kids that had american parents. They didn't have a sense of this. And i kind of think that's kind of where we are why we are where we are now because many americans just don't realize how bad it can get. They've never experienced it now. If you grew up in cuba or your parents grew up in cuba or you came from the soviet union You you know how evil communism is and so. It's one of the reasons that i've gone out on a limb. Some people think perhaps rectal recklessly. But i think when you're facing the possibility of marxism whether it's cultural marxism cancel culture. That's of course how it starts. You have to be vigilant. This is really really. It's not worth hanging back This is this is very very dark stuff so it's one of the reasons that i've been so outspoken. Because i've lived this through my parents. I know what is possible. I know that things don't always turn out. Well

We hear more on that from Bloomberg's Dinis Pellegrini. Vandalism on the seven train could soon affect service for those who rely on the line to travel between Queens and Manhattan, New York one reports. Vandals have smashed dozens of windows on several subway trains over the past few months, and the vandalism has happened so often, the empty says it has gone through its stockpile of replacement glass now. Each time this happens, the MTV has to pull the train out of service for hours to replace the windows. Plus it costs about $500 apiece and the M T. A is now facing a total of about $300,000 in damage from the vandalism. And this comes at a time when it's already struggling financially because of the pandemic.

A Very Long Word
"What is the longest word in the English language? Well I think it's disputed at least if you consult youtube videos out there and people reading what is claimed to be the longest word so I don't know but I have a word for you. I'm not saying it's the longest but I'm saying it's very long or you ready. Its disestablishment ISM by my count. That's ten syllables. What is disestablishment terrorism? Well first we need to know what is establishmentarian ISM and for that. Let's go back all the way. Back to. Constantine in three hundred and their constantine not only legalized Christianity but he enacted laws that made it preferential to be a Christian and we have the beginnings of an established state church. This rolls on through the Middle Ages. By the time we get to Christmas Day. Eight hundred we see a zenith of this establishmentarian. Ism Pope Leo. The third is Crowning Charlemagne Holy Roman emperor and so through the Middle Ages. We have an established church. This was also true. The reformers we sometimes use the designation magisterial reformers. That's not to say that the reformers were grand or authoritative magisterial as a reference to the magistrate. And so whether was Calvin and Calvin S or Lutheran the Lutheran or the Anglicans or the presbyterians there was a view of an interdependence of church and state the group that was opposed to that where the Anna Baptists the during the reformation period. But it's really in the modern age that we begin to see establishmentarian as key piece of this is William Penn. The quaker in sixteen eighty one King Charles. The second deeded land to William Penn and the next year he settled his province later colony leader State of. Penn's woods and you put woods into the Latin and you have. Pennsylvania was established as a colony of religious freedom but for the most part the colonies had an established a tax supported church even after the revolutionary wars these colonies became states. We see them carry on in this establishmentarian practice in fact it's up until eighteen thirty five. That Massachusetts has a state supported. Church the Congregational Church well back. In seventeen eighty six. There was a key piece of legislation. It was entitled the Virginia Statute of Religious Freedom It was written by Thomas Jefferson and promoted this idea of religious freedom. Then we go into the constitution of the United States which was written in seventeen eighty seven was enacted in seventeen eighty nine and in seventeen ninety one. The first ten amendments were ratified and famously. The First Amendment says Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion prohibiting the free exercise thereof or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press or of the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for redress of grievances. So in those first two clauses we have what are known as the establishment clause. That is there will be no establishment of religion and the free exercise clause which is the positive side of that of promoting the freedom of religious expression we sometimes hear the expression of separation of church and state. That's actually not in. The constitution came in a letter in Eighteen. O To a letter from Thomas Jefferson. Who was president at the time to the Danbury Baptist Association and he interpreted the First Amendment as thus building the wall of separation between Church and state in many ways has been interpreted since then but it is not language that is in the constitution. But we do have is a disestablishment terrorism as the First Amendment of the bill of rights. Well there you have it along history for a long word and there are many opinions about this word. This word of many syllables. This establishmentarian.
