"Thanks to to I Liberty Georgia and the Frost family for sponsoring the program. The economy looks like it could help the president but there are still these worrying signs out there in the heartland so the president has gone to Louisiana to campaign for the Republican nominee in Louisiana Museum. There is a runoff in Louisiana. I'm from Louisiana and just so you know Louisiana elections are somewhat interesting so the way Louisiana elections used to work is you would have a an election and it was a jungle primary a jungle primary everyone of every party piles on the same ballot and the top two vote getters go into the runoff in in the way it was typically scheduled was that the runoff. I would be On Election Day and if someone got over fifty percent there was no election election day in this applied to Congress this applied to Everyone other than president and that became problematic in the state and there was a lawsuit filed back when I was in college. I think that that Opposed it and the reason being is because the constitution says the election for federal offices is the is the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November will everybody was having their elections prior to that. And you can have someone with over fifty percent win so there was an election on the ballot in Louisiana and this report where to. They couldn't do that so they shook things up. And now you have in odd numbered years when it's just eight contests. You have an election in October and then you have a run off the week after everyone else votes. Very very screwed up Louisiana you gotta remember has Napoleonic System it has a civil code Louisiana has a constitution but it also has a separate section of law called the the Louisiana The Civil Code it's a byproduct of the French system where you have statutes but those statutes have to be read in light eight of this civil code and it's hard to change it's harder to change the civil code than the Constitution to a degree in Louisiana just because a philosophy in the way the state works but but the governor or the president has gone to Louisiana now with this weird election system. The election is on Tuesday. This coming week John Bel Edwards is the Democrat Pratt incumbent. He beat David Visitor. If you'll recall David vetter had been a US. Senator and bitter had women problems and people thought the women problems had been set aside but then as visitor her became the nominee for the Republican Party shortly thereafter. A number of other people came forward and said that bitter was having still Having all the women problems he supposedly set aside the opponent to John Bell Words as Eddie Respond. He is a Republican businessman. He's a longtime Republican lookin. Donor spent a lot of money. I don't think he was the strongest Republican candidate but he made it into the prime into the run off after the jungle primary. The president goes goes to Louisiana and he has some help. The president has some help in Louisiana in the name of of Joe Biden because Joe Biden went to Louisiana before the President Joe Biden went to Louisiana before the president resident and shed this oil and gas revenues. A big topic here for Louisiana. Right now you dealt with this when you were in the Senate you dealt with this when you were Vice President President how important what would you elected to make sure Louisiana gets its fair share of oil and gas revenue is so much drilling done off the Louisiana coast right now. Well first the ball. I think the Gillian often coast over time has ended up being phased out. We have to provide alternatives here but the fact is that oil the the he places that are taking the hit for the supply and the nation with energy need should be compensated and the where where it comes from. So I've never argued against that proposition but I have argued against the notion that the answer to this is to find more fossil fuels burn. The fact of the matter is you're you're GonNa have your state and mine are going to be mostly underwater. Whereabout three three three feet above sea level? The fact is that in fact the seas are rising we got according the report about eleven years left before becomes irredeemable and we have to take drastic action now for example we should have over half a million charging stations around the country that you could have electric vehicle plug in the reason. Why people aren't buying them? Where do you where do you re fuel okay? So there's a lot of practical practical things we can do quickly and I think we should be doing a lot. More in terms of tripling. The offshore wind capacity that exists in the nation. I don't think we need more offshore drilling and I think we should focus on but we have to find transitions for people who were hurt by it just like right come from Scranton. Coal Mines in West Virginia. Virginia you have to transition. We cannot continue cannot continue to burn fossil fuels at the rate renewing. Now Okay Louisiana's biggest industries are oil and natural gas if you drive from south south of New Orleans so when I was a kid When I was five we moved to Dubai? I grew up in Dubai. Actually five to fifteen lived in Dubai in the eighties But would come home during the summer too easily in a parish which is a very rural parish most people there are are employed by the state and prisons and other capacity and We would go during the summer down to grand isle. Grand dial is a barrier island in south Louisiana and it takes a it is a drive live to get there. I think of driving from wherever you are in the state of Georgia right now to Amelia Island Florida Except except it's it's rural it's through sugarcane fields and Joe Biden is right the levels are rising Louisiana but it has as much to do with Louisiana sinking as it it does with evil levels rising South Louisiana is a swamp and because of the levy system that was built in the thirties forties and fifties fifties to control flooding in South Louisiana. A lot of the sediment no longer flows into the swamp parts of Louisiana to settle to build land. It washes out to sea see and so you're getting settlement further and further out into the Gulf of Mexico and that has a lot to do with the problems in Louisiana in fact Christmas tree. Recycling is huge. Louisiana's kids kids. After our our Christmas trees were done we would come home for Christmas From Dubai for Christmas occasionally and family and friends who were there and after we moved back to Louisiana so you would recycle your Christmas trees and they would be taken down to South Louisiana and they would be put inside fences in the water to help attract the sediment to reclaim the landon prevent erosion you drive down south of the of New Orleans and you get to the town of Venus. Venus is I mean it is on a simple land and it is surrounded on all sides by water in Venus's slowly washing away. The Mississippi River surrounds it Yellow cotton bay surrounds it. You drive up from Venice. It is a long road up through port sulphur. All the way up to New Orleans you go through Belch as you go through Shell L.. Met You go through a Arab you go through. Gretna you get to New Orleans you get to the crescent city and then you can hit the interstate and you can go across to Texas. You can go across to Florida where you can go up to baton rouge. You can go to Mississippi that whole area everything you will see air flames in the night sky. If you drive there are towers with flames in those are petrochemical plants that are burning off Poisonous gases and other things with these is flames. In the smokestacks the entire place is covered in these between my house and Baton Rouge Louisiana which she's a forty five minute drive where my parents live up in rural Louisiana In East Lucian Perish. You drive you take highway sixty one which is a federal highway highway that connects the natural traces essentially nashes Mississippi down through Louisiana rides along the Mississippi River. Along the bluffs the highlands of Louisiana. Yeah this is the the highest part of Louisiana these rolling hills that come down Mississippi where I grew up and you will encounter an Exxon Mobil oil refinery. That's one of the largest. Just in the nation you'll encounter a be a SF petrochemical plant. You'll encounter a Georgia Pacific and James River Wood pulp plants. You'll encounters Chevron you'll encounter Phillips Conaco you'll encounter more Exxon you'll encounter a dow chemical plant Do Pot plant lots and lots of petrochemical plants dependent on the petrochemical industry in Louisiana dependent on the oil and gas asked industry and here comes Joe Biden saying we gotTa stop with the fossil fuels says that in Louisiana now part of this. Let's be honest here. Joe Biden has no chance chance of winning Louisiana John Bel Edwards may win reelection next week. But that doesn't mean that Joe Biden is going to win Louisiana The Democrats are not very popular in Louisiana. I know that there is no polling to suggest that they're competitive in Louisiana but it does not help him and it does not help John Bel Edwards the incumbent Democratic governor for Joe Joe Biden to come down and say hey we need to get rid of your fossil fuel industry. We need to curtail that. Well the president pick that up after Joe Biden said the president last night in Louisiana on the campaign trail decided to make an issue of it. Meanwhile every top Democrat running for president has pledged to abolish all American Eric production of oil and natural gas shipping thousands of your state's energy jobs overseas..

"Com was our meeting room and that's how the campaign went on for months and months and that's a huge thing but let's talk about another aspect of all this representative Katie Hill of California. She was slut shamed on social media for an admitted affair with a campaign staffer which is legal. Although questionable ended ended alleged but denied a fair with congressional staffer which is illegal. She took full responsibility for her actions with the campaign staffer in her farewell speech on the House House floor but you also made no bones about her anger in that farewell speech today. I ask you all to stand with me and commit to creating a future where this no longer happens bins to women and girls yes. I'm stepping down but I refuse to let this experience scare off other women who dared to take risks who dare to step into into this light. Who Dare to be powerful? It might feel like they won in the short term. They can't in the long term we cannot let them. I'm leaving but we have men who have been credibly accused of intentional acts of sexual violence and remain in boardrooms on the Supreme Court in this very body and worst of all in the Oval Office as the token guy in our little. Try It. I'm disgusted by a pair of double standards in Washington when it comes to sexual misdeeds steeds I of course. There's the gender double standard women or sluts men are players secondly the two parties have different standards. Katie Hill Al Franken can John. Conyers are just a few of the people who were forced to leave office because of allegations of sexual improprieties and I note that none of them was charged with sexual assault on the Republican inside. You've got people like senator. David vetter re elected to the Senate. Despite admitting to frequenting prostitutes in Washington got former governor and congressman mark. Sanford he of the two continents adultery. In which you use government resources to hide his dalliances and he's running for president. Then of course you've got president trumps favorite rock and roll singer. Ted had nugent. He wrote and recorded a song called Jail Bait to celebrate his pre R Kelly Romances with children. And he's also a good buddy with convicted rapists Mike Tyson both of them are welcome guests in the Oval Office. And of course there's Donald John Trump himself a self-confessed sexual Predator the whole. It kind of makes me sick. I agree I think the stepping down. It's win when you saw Al Franken and John Conyers resign for me. That was. That was really really disappointing. They were both such effective. Legislators Katie Hill. I I honestly wasn't even aware of but I think your main point about the slut shaming is spot on when it comes to women having this issue. They're just they're just trashed and it doesn't harm them in the way that it harms the women. I think there's a difference in our respective basis. Progressive supporters. Don't tend to stick with the people who have screwed up the way that the more conservative people do. They just don't don't seem to have that same set of standards. Where you know John Conyers? So it's very powerful man. When he stepped down you know? People were kind of willing to sail but he did that and that I I can't support him anymore. That's weird to me I worked for two very providence. St Political leaders who had extramarital affairs both of which strangely enough ended up up in them getting married to the person with whom they were having the affair on a personal level as affairs. Were very hurtful for people but to me. It didn't impact their job performance. One Iota I don't like public officials being forced from office because uncorroborated allegations but most of all. I hate the double standard that excuses. Donald Trump it excuses David letterman and the rest of the scum of the vilifies Katie Hill just before the broadcast. Today I looked up Revenge porn to find out which states have laws against it in forty six states have laws against it in and that's how Katie Hill was outed and including Michigan. We have a law against it. So hopefully they'll be enforcing these laws. Oku Okay we also took a look at a campaign in Kansas City for mayor which I thought was absolutely amazing it was basically slut shaming of a candidate candidate who's attacked online with stuff. That was just total bogus. WHO's totally bogus? A black and white video showing scenes. A women's clothes strewn on the ground a half open Ascari tube an eyelash curler stage. Look as if they'd fallen out of a jacket pocket. Young Women silhouetted against the grey background relate allegations of sexual harassment by state. Lawmakers makers is large white block letters spelled out the most lurid details. Hey the first woman says dear panties match your outfit. She said she was told at the end of the fifty second can clip. The women's voices become one as they say stop Brandon whipple. The sexual harassment charges didn't involve him. He suing yeah. He's doing an alleging. The AD had slandered him and local reports found that the man behind the video shares office space with two prominent Kansas Republican's. But it's out there and it's like everything else you you can't put the toothpaste back in the tube. Yes that's true. In m people tend to believe.

"Election reform called ranked choice voting let's begin though the House votes setting the rules for the public face of what appears to be an inevitable decision to impeach Donald Trump Christine there's no issue today that seems to polarise as more right now the polling backs that up well it certainly does the pulling is really all over the place and the questions are interesting as well so for example we have a Harvard cavs Harris poll that was conducted the last week of October actually last couple of days of October twenty nine hundred thirty first trump's latest job approval hello rating has him at forty six percent approval fifty four percent disapproval and that I think he's still riding the high of those Baghdadi that Baghdadi Addi announcement and some job numbers that turned out to be pretty good for him on the other hand the Washington Post ABC News poll of about the same time period and his job approval oval at thirty eight percent and disapproval at fifty eight lists like five percent no opinion how could you have no opinion on his job approval because you hate him and you don't want to say ah that's what it is so depending on the Paul the way that questions were asked now the Washington Post does have some more detail associated with it the harvard caps poll details details won't come out until later but on the impeachment question which is really interesting is just it comes down to how they asked it. I think so this is a question that win out October thirteenth to twenty six telephone calls English and Spanish over thirty seven hundred voters across six battleground states and fifty two to forty four percent fifty two percent oppose impeachment and removal but that same number fifty two percent support the impeachment inquiry currently being conducted by the House of Representatives so it really is the way that you ask the question when it comes down to that but you can see that like like you said I mean it's a very polarizing issue I'm not at all concerned about those particular numbers what concerned me was a very large percentage of people about at the same number felt that what he did in Ukraine if he supposedly did in Ukraine it's not a crime they figure it's just politics as usual a couple of things on the polling I on the approval rating a Hey Sawsan statistics that Barack Obama after Osama bin Laden was shot and killed he get about an eleven point boost in the polls in his approval rating but it only lasted about two weeks is suspected to be the same for trump and the bump he got was a lot smaller as well I think mostly because most people don't know who L. Baghdadi is when you say the head of Isis was killed it helps a little bit but the Nail Baghdadi doesn't ring the same as Osama Osama bin Laden the polling that was done by the New York Times and CNN college in the swing states on impeachment shows that the states are still nearly divided but a little less US likely to support the idea of actually removing trump from office but again when you go back in history the Richard Nixon numbers would he was facing Watergate they didn't didn't really peak until just about a week before he resigned the big difference though is back then everybody had the same set of facts we didn't have a Fox News we didn't have a Breitbart we we didn't have conspiracy websites we didn't have facebook and twitter all we had basically was the big three networks and the major national newspaper so people were working from the same set of facts now what you read in what you watch determines how you feel about president trump to a large extent and they just the messaging of the Republicans are so it's so tightly integrated so they just want to do over the election people react negatively to election do oversee even even even for somebody as dislike trump. It's distasteful thing I think to a lot of people so if you're talking about impeachment and removal off that's why you see those disapproval numbers but if you're looking at the impeachment inquiry yeah we want to investigate it we want to find out the facts and Michigan is fifty forty supporting it's slightly in support of and that kind of reflects a congressional delegation to the seven Democrats Plus Independent Justin Amash all voted in favor of the rules setting up the next phase of the impeachment which most people are interpreting is a vote on whether or not to have the investigation so where does that leave us in terms of the politics six of at Michigan is this going to be a decisive issue in those swing districts the two that Democrats sworn in last time with Hayley Stevens and Elissa slacken and then the upcoming election including the Justin Amash district which is because it's a three way race very very tight and then of course you've also got John Hooligans Fred Upton Upton and did vote against the inquiry that could work against Fred Upton I do think that the inquiry is legit and I think a lot of people who are reasonable people well and are not the actual trump based Ken buy into that one of the biggest differences I've mentioned between the Nixon impeachment saga today is the source of information under under Nixon there was no Internet America's generally got there consistent set of facts on which to form a judgment today each tribe has its own set of facts and purveyor of facts public opinion can it'd be predicted based on where you get your news and smack DAB in the middle of all of this is social media something that didn't even exist during the Bill Clinton impeachment aim even looking at the pressures is on what's really the wild west of information wild west is right twitter and downst- their intention to ban all political ads and ads on contentious split issues like immigration abortion and no this is not restricting free speech twitter's a privately held company not subject to First Amendment protections additionally additionally individuals will be free to tweet any political content they wish including probably adds that they pick up elsewhere this is a sharp contrast to the hands off approach upped up to the political ads announced by facebook the trump campaign put out a statement on the twitter ban claiming that it's a left wing conspiracy to silence them of course it's it's always conspiracy theory with trump's in another interesting political at twist traditional media are increasingly pulling candidate ads they deem untruthful well this is in defiance of the FCC rules that say that they have to run them even if they're complete bullshit the lying has become so blatant and so obnoxious they just can't take those ad ad dollars any more likely the only network left to run this garbage will be facts I am absolutely fascinated by the investments that the trump campaign is making online total facebook and Google spending to date by the trump campaign's as two committees twenty six million dollars most of that though being used really early for organizational purposes is not so much for messaging as it is to get lists of potential supporters and to raise money but still that dwarfs anything that any Democrat has done with the exception of Tom Steyer who basically is used as personal fortune to get attention and get into the debates looking at the numbers just from the week of October twentieth the most recent that I've got available stare spent nine hundred thousand dollars on facebook and Google and then number two is people to judge which is so I think very interesting indication of how he is moving up in the polls followed by Trump Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders Tulsi Gabbard and then down at at the bottom you can see why better O'Rourke was gone he only spent six thousand dollars on social media just before he pulled out of the campaign and you see also at the bottom of those people like Marianne Williamson and Steve Bullock people people who really don't have a whole lot of money but it's it really is a it's a different state now right now when it comes to political advertising it's online is the name of the game and there's no rules calls I think it's just begging for regulation at this point I think Mark Zuckerberg actually wants to merge because he doesn't WanNa make these decisions there are a lot of pressures pressure's on him to basically do the same thing that twitter did and that would have a huge impact on the campaign if you took down the advertising but they would still have the unfettered spreading of bullshit by individuals whether it's the Russians or by a your your crazy uncle who you argue with Thanksgiving they could still put anything they want on there and Fischbach has got a real problem when it comes to monitoring that sort of thing I think soccer burqas going to cave on this issue and impulse some of these ads he might do do that but you know the Internet is where people get radicalized and that's never done through any kind of particular advertising that's done through these private facebook facebook groups and reaching out to people in direct messaging and say hey I saw you posted this maybe it'd be interested in this and it's really disturbing the way that you can and build up a group of really nasty people and it really it's like minded people really but what disturbs you the fact that these people who are just a bit troubled just a a bit over the edge can go and turn into these extremists because of what is available to them in this unfiltered setting you know you don't have to have the political advertising retiring what is the disparity between their organizing efforts in our organizing efforts because we were already organized on the Internet is really what I'm getting at because we've been organizing on the Internet a little bit longer than they have we're better at it or at least we were so I'm just wondering if they're catching up amaze lopsided certainly spending a lot more money on it right now you're right about it being a great organizing tool for progressive movements and has been used for awhile proposal to basically happened because a facebook facebook was our organizing tool totally it was our communications tool for many many many months in fact all of our meetings were conducted using social media was facebook Google drive was our office space basically Glee and Free Conference Call Dot Com was our meeting room and that's how the campaign went on for months and months and that's a huge thing but let's talk about another aspect of all this representative Katie Hill of California she was slut shamed on social

"Interesting story not getting a lot of national attention but the result may in Louisiana they have a gubernatorial election up in a state that has turned Republican in the last decade or so it was purple for a few years in between Bobby Jindal was the governor for several terms the state house and Senate have gone Republican majority a Democrat one the last election but it was one of those really weird elections like what happened in Alabama Alabama has Doug Jones say Democrat as their senator but nobody thinks it Alabama state wide elections are gonna go Democrat again it's a Republican state it's a conservative Republican state Roy Moore was just a really bad Canada and Doug Jones managed because he was the not Roy Moore candidate to win in the unexpired term of Jeff sessions well in Louisiana John bell Edwards was running against David Vetter Vitor had made a lot of the enemies and while there was strong enough to get in to the election with John bell Edwards he wasn't strong enough to defeat him so you had a guy named John bell Edwards who fancies himself raise himself as a moderate middle of the road Democrat can a Democrat Republicans can support you know Republicans are often stupid enough to buy that stick and then there shocked when that guy staffs offices or a member of the house they'll vote for a congressman and a fifty fifty district or even a majority Republican district of though well he's one of us a good guy didn't he votes for Nancy Pelosi to be speaker of the house the single most important thing a congressman us is vote for the speaker of the house if you're casting a vote for Nancy Pelosi you'll never cast a more important vote as a member of the house including on the issue of impeachment because word Democrats not in control of the house Republicans were then you wouldn't have this problem well so there's John bell Edwards he's a Democrat and Republican state in the national media is saying well this is going to be a referendum on Donald Trump every time they do that they keep losing so then I don't say anything about it may just hope for the next one because what they want to keep telling Republicans the donor plants is scared of its own shadow the guys that write checks to candidates or not a bold crowd trust me they were afraid of their own shadows in the minute they thank their guy won't win they will abandon course this can be bad for all out okay yeah you're right you're right we're gonna get rid of it so the pundits are calling the governor's race it's October twelfth and it's what's called a jungle primary there aren't a lot of these across the country in where they are it's worth noting how it can skew results you've got Louisiana's governor John bel Edwards there's always something of an advantage to being an income but you have all the powers of incumbency you can raise money with from people who do business with the state he's a Democrat up for reelection there are two Republican candidates early voting just ended and the turnout is massive particularly among Republicans and independents Louisiana's JMS analytics writes quote as of last night so early voting is over October twelfth so five days from now we'll be election day as of last night three hundred seventy four thousand one hundred ninety people in Louisiana I either only voted by person or by mail in ballot three hundred forty thousand in person thirty four thousand Malin to put this number in perspective there right this is the highest early voting turnout ever for a non presidential election and is the second highest early voting turnout ever in Louisiana history the last time the largest voting turnout early voting turnout ever was two thousand sixteen five hundred thirty thousand early votes yes who won them now there was a drop off in early voting in this election then when trump was on the ballot but this raises the question those people who showed up vote for trump are most likely the people who showed up voted again what if those people showed up voted to vote against a Democrat those numbers correspond to the massive fundraising halls that the Republicans have been collecting over the last quarter they also mirrored the steady approval numbers that trump is seeing despite or maybe because of the impeachment nonsense people ask me every day in frustrated tones on the air in person my email Michael what can we do to stop this this is not about crimes that were committed it's not about constitutional governance this is about overturning the election because they lost and I said all along what you can do is show up and vote if every Democrat out there if every Adam Schiff if every Nancy Pelosi if everyone of them is getting defeated in the polls if they're getting defeated at the ballot box they either won't be there to engage in this nonsense or if they're not up for election they'll say I'm not going to participate in that because I'll be kicked out of office so I don't know maybe John bell Edwards wins again maybe just.

"Now you've had you have pollsters on your show quite often I mean what are they saying that this show will air jim probably right before the early voting but what earlier you had pollsters on and you have Mark Ballard on. What are they saying about our upcoming election. I think most people believe that John Bel Edwards boards is situated about as well as he could be but it being red state makes him vulnerable presumably if he were to make a run off and and right now the latest polls show him had fifty two percent if the election were held today and in his opponents are not that well known now as people get to know uh-huh them better they may likes it more and be more inclined to vote for them or they may not like them and Ralph Abraham and Eddie responded. You're both going for what I would view. View is the hard right side of the political spectrum. They're not moving to the middle and that has some danger for them. Because the electorate is largely in the middle and some things are saying in order to secure that base might not sit well with somebody who's not in that base and Ralph Abraham has a spot. Here's a man who's a doctor of veterinarian pilot Congressman Man of substance and he spot says I assure ear that there are only two genders well. I didn't need a congressman to say that and he's qualified qualified is qualified that in and of course Eddie responds multimillionaire businessman Eddy responding his mantras that I've gotta trump bumper sticker here on my truck and tracking Nada Mercedes swallow well and so he believes that enough people will be happy. PT Here that that they will vote for him in lieu of Ralph Abraham John Bel Edwards or not vote at all but I think there is a question of how many people are jumping out of the seats. It's in their living room and they see that spot saying he's my guy at a trump bumper sticker on his truck. It's time to make a choice in row are ready respond. He's my guy but you know I'm sitting here laughing at us all three mount or amount of substance. I mean you know what I'm saying. It's John Bel Edwards is the experienced politician the other the Republican candidates are fine man but what does it say about us. When this is the kind of message that were being given. I guess you can't capture the substance in a thirty second or even a minute consultants they they go for the low hanging fruit the lowest common denominator and and and Edwards there's a West Point guy and really smart fellow but he won the election in two thousand fifteen largely on the fact that David vetter had consorted with prostitutes patriots or prostitutes reasons. We take a far more than one point four percent of the news. Yes maybe so but you know Donald Trump. He's got enough allegations and he makes David veteran look like a choirboy stick. The people stay with him no matter what and of course he he paid several hundred thousand dollars in hush money to a pornographic film star and and she was born in Baton Rouge. He's he storm annuals on on Saint Patrick's Day of nineteen seventy now yeah no. I I happen then. I don't want to be a name dropper because I don't know this gentleman but I happened to be in the same restaurant with him. In September of last year it was Warren Beatty in Calif- Los Angeles and I introduced myself and where you're from. I'm from Baton Rouge. He goes stormy Daniels. She put our city on the map. Maybe they should name a street in Harare. What do you think the most famous baton rouge stormy Daniels Talent that'd be. I it's GonNa be on the main drive I have. I have some friends who say that you know there's usually street in a big city named after Martin Luther King but very very rarely as you know lush upscale part a town. It's it's usually pretty rough but crime ridden place yes and that's unfortunate because he was a great man. I was ten years old when he died but he and I share the same birthday January fifteenth along with Ernest Gaines that's and drew brees and and Martin Luther King. I'll take credit for them but Martin Luther King according to Mike Wallace Alice was the greatest American of the twentieth century and I think a case can be made right right well. Let's shift from maybe politics and I'd like to I hear some of your experiences on the radio. You cover everything you have authors on. You have well known people that are coming through you. you just have a really good variety of guests. Are there some things that you remember back over your career that either you remember with pride or maybe we're a memorable that you'd like to share well. I talked about civility and public. Radio is a place where generally people have civil conversations. The biggest Talk Star in public radio is Teri Gross. He's had people walk out on her bill. O'reilly Bill O'Reilly did gene in Simmons and she got into it and and occasionally I get into it with a guest this fellow Sebastian Gorka walked out on me not long ago in in an interview and years ago and coulter did she took her ball and went home. She was not happy with the way the interview was going and in those that's live live and and it's not something I strive to do but but you know that's what people talk about the they love it when there's friction as long August people aren't pummeling each other in the studio we haven't had that but other times. We've had some very good conversations in which I've learned a lot and it's always good to learn earns something different about a person that maybe it didn't I interview Jerry Brown the Governor of California four times sixteen years as governor they are the youngest and oldest governor in the history of California. This was when he was mayor of Oakland and his aide who had been with them. A long time. I remember her name was terry she said and so. Do you know he'll he'll ground rules. He'll answer any question you ask him but she said you know. You really think you're a lightweight. If the first questions about Linda into Ronstadt who dated so with the show I was doing then was called. Louisiana live and it's good afternoon. Welcome to Louisiana alive and our special guest is former California Governor Jerry Brown the Mayor of Oakland Governor good afternoon he goes Jim. It's always great to talk to someone from Louisiana. CNN and I said and why is that he goes reminds me of Linda ronstadt cigarette connection. I love that Song Blue by you. It was in the studio and she recorded it but he he's a fascinating guy. He was a freshman in college at the University of Santa Clara and his roommate was Max Baer Junior. JETHRO death row jethro apparently Jerry Brown has it's a pivoting decides sides. He wants to be a Catholic priest so he goes into a Jesuit seminary and he's not allowed to read newspapers or listen to the radio or watch television and his father. Pat Brown in nineteen fifty eight is elected governor of California and he doesn't even know he doesn't even know that his dad on the governors election so he said this got a little too weird for me and then he left the seminary and I asked him where he went he said I went to Berkeley so he went from one extreme to the other in the hippy and he was elected governor of California one thousand nine hundred seventy four thirty six and I've often wondered why we have We have an age limit on the front side. You gotTA BE THIRTY FIVE TO BE President but nothing on the backside we might elected ninety four year old. Edwin Edwards is ninety two. Maybe a run for the presidency is in the offing for former governor and of all the people I've interviewed Jan.. He's probably the one who is the quickest quickest with a quip. He is still at the age of ninety two he can he can. He's got that wit. He could have been a stand up comic and yeah no matter what you ask him. He's he's on the ready numbers people. I mean he's got a great calm but I interviewed him right after he got out of prison and any pretty much said he was an atheist and and I said you didn't pray those eight and a half years. He goes now Hey I said well. Where are you going when you die he goes. I'm right in the ground. That's where I'm going going anywhere else and I said I said you never prayed and he goes yeah. Yeah prayed. He says I prayed this morning morning that this would be a very good interview. Obviously my prayers are not answered but it's not like on the interview though besides joking he's underneath that underneath that facade he's he's a genuine person and he of course was a controversial political figure but a towering one long was only on the national and state seen for seven years and then he was killed at forty two. Edwin Edwards for sixteen to twenty four years was governor of Louisiana and what he did has remnants to contemporary politics and of course he ran for Congress in twenty fourteen against jared graves when Edwards was eighty seven and it was a foolish thing to do because that district has been gerrymandered its represents baton atten rouge but for some reason Cedric Richmond the congressman in New Orleans he's also the congressman for North Baton Rouge where Southern University and in most of the black folks folks are and and it's all designed to protect whoever the sixth district Republican has and that scared graves because if those voters were in his district he would be out of a job job unless he switched parties so that's that's a classic case of Gerrymandering and Edwin Edwards got right in the middle of that but even with all of his problems. He got thirty eight percent of he the he didn't win. Run A close race but Garrett raves has the distinction of having knocked off the king and he's a guy to watch. He's he's. He's a very articulate guy. Handsome fellow likable does not have a college degree but hey most people in Louisiana adults he did go to the University of Alabama to that might end up being a problem in Tuscaloosa Alabama would they elected elected Congressmen who had dropped out of Lsu. I think not but in Baton Rouge we've elected Congressmen and dropped out of the University of Alabama but Dr that I'm being somewhat facetious. It's true what I'm saying but I think Garrett grades may very well be the next governor. There are rumblings. There are rumblings. That's Edwards wins reelection. There are rumblings though that drew brees is looking at running for that is rather exciting. I mean everybody probably one hundred percent of the people know who durfee base Andrew Breeze would win and drew brees my very well ended up being president of the United States. We have this culture of of rewarding people people who are well known and personalities and celebrities and and he can throw a football. We know that he's thrown for more yards than anybody else and he might he might very very well. go the distance if he enters the political realm in four years from now. You'll be forty four the timing's just about perfect. I'd heard that he's invested over here. In laugh in the area young's Phil. He's that would be interesting. We'll have to watch that. I guess it depends though on Republican takes that I interviewed view the The trial lawyer Gordon Macrae few weeks ago and he's you know the G. Guarantees Begin to g and Eric had that I had the they got the G. and I said what what you know if you ever thought about running for Governor Governor Gordon and he said Yeah Yeah so he may be Gordon Gordon mckern and we'll be he spends ten million invest ten million a year and advertise thinking it might be cheaper to run for governor and if you lose still yeah you still win so our next election might be a runoff between drew brees and Gordon so Jim. I'm curious about some other things that you do. I WanNa talk about Tiger Rag. I mean I love Tiger Rag for years you you through the Louisiana Radio Network. You you purchased Tigon Louisiana Radio Network owned Tiger Rag when when I acquired it and so that came with the acquisition but I had written a Tiger Tiger rag column and still do but since nineteen eighty five so I already was affiliated with the magazine Kazini and Steve Myers was the founder in nineteen seventy eight he founded tiger rag and it brands itself as the Bible of Lsu sports that was Steve's idea and we were the answer to it. jeopardy question a few years ago really being the bottom of what she's sporting orbiting. Yes that yeah yeah so but tiger rag is a publication. That's now a glossy twelve times. A year. We do have tabloids go to subscribers but the glossies that are largely distributed in Baton Rouge really are nice looking magazines casinos and and I think there's a place for LSU sports in Baton Rouge..

"Bella was only one with six twenty four thousand votes. Donald trump got more votes than edwards and david vetter got together. He got one point two million that goes to what you said the number of people that ought apathy don't care anymore. Some people just move out to state but they just discussed and we've lost a lot and we lost a lot of the people that call mirror to upper income. I want me middle class working. People that left a jobs ops. They felt like they had to leave. Goes your best and brightest and people that have become to become educated not just college but through high school and i see when i saw those numbers wow we had thirty eight thirty nine percent vote in the governor's race last time someone would discussed didn't want to vote for veterans day and that <hes> <hes> <hes> seventy one vote for a democrat in half a million one point two million people voted. I mean that's nothing two point nine million registered boat right so you apathy. Is there jane you hit it on. I mean people just don't care or they had enough sad thing about. It is had enough as doing that bothered me because they'll even so that means. If you lose a mona voting you lose them. Citizens there you childbearing people the people that start businesses dr preneurs types. I that come on what it's like. We said near chris writer but chris had to come up with this young man over here. Did somebody had to come up with this idea what he's doing. Well a lot of young people like this. Now chris not young anymore but starting these ideas and he said that you can tell him i said it too but the point venus think about what i just said if of chris rado would've said i'm leaving. He started his business in texas. Children get educated there. They stay there. They moved kids. Go off to college. They're not coming back for the most part. Better have a job because the key to keep them. He's a job in business and you want to legislate you. You tell me when we focused on really focused on jobs and the the things that we can do to keep people here. We've never i've been following this since they had wanted was to bill which and i don't remember many governors. I remembered the running two miles about jobs. Ogden businesses never happen yeah. Well rumor did that but then he only lasted one you know for me though when i was in school i'm i'm really dating myself that government paid for government paid for our tuition so i didn't have money i was in social security college but tuition was really paid for by our government and when i see where we are now where it's upside down things aren't changing are talking on your show this morning about l._s._u.'s already saying they have a three percent. That's because the numbers of students are down well. This is the thing that we're not enough students in enrolled in paying tuition. We've loss fifteen at twenty thousand students. I don't remember the number. I had it today. The university's -versities awesome in k. through twelve well. If you have less people in k. through twelve you i have less people in the colleges so what they do with the colleges i mean it takes a lot to run them. They do and do it on a roll meant would do enrollment is a downy being counted in high school and college so they can get more money coming in and <hes> but we're losing them because jobs ops people so high corley that we're losing people. We're one of only three or four stage that are losing people steal. We've been losing people but we lose them. Steal only the st louis and population. We okay we're yet. We've lost <hes> twenty seven thousand people in four years twenty-seven they put out a number eight ten thousand is twenty seven thousand five. I don't know whether you've got the tan from people that have left. That's that's that's the net migration russian counter people moving in count the people that left. That's not a good number right right. That's that's that's people looking for jobs and looking for opportunities and we lose people people to people i want to thank about. I got two kids and they live in texas. I got four grand babies where you can keep them here and i just don't think we focus on the right things and i look. I'm not trying to be a greedy selfish businessman because i don't think anybody's selfish ingredients business businesspeople. Just being reality of chris moves his business. These young people have a choice find a job similar. Go with him right. That's going to be the choice away. Chris operates. I know he doesn't just operate in louisiana so it kind of helps me this like. I don't know just operate in lafayette. Gas didn't just operate in monroe. That's helped me so bob right right. He could be anywhere with this business and i'm not saying he's gonna move but i tell you what he's got young kids that they all go to college somewhere he could. He could pick a move one day. It'd be easy six hundred. What do you see with the governor's race. You know a lot of people. I know are okay with governor edwards. They've liked the way he handled. The flood awed. He's a family man pro-life and you've got the other side of the coin. You know <hes> the economy what you want to blue prejudice. I'm probably the worst one to ask but i'll tell you. I've always said he's a one term governor. I still believe he is. I think if you look at accomplishments. I don't think he can tell you what you accomplish. Nice guy. He's good when hurricanes but if you look at he's raised a lot of taxes on people and fix nothing. There's nothing fixed budgets not even fix. We'll have the deficit next year if i'm wrong you till to give me back on a program they you looked at l._s._u. L._s._u. set with three percents short well. If you look at the commercials said we fully funded funded higher ed well which one is it <hes>. There's a lot of things that remember trump got fifty eight percent of the vote. This is red state. He got fifty eight percent last year. During a congressional congressional district fifty seven fifty eight percent of republican one david veterans not in a race. I personally liked thought he was tough but vetter was a problem yet one hundred hundred and fifty thousand people that voted against david vitit at vote republican yet another fifty thousand that did not vote as remember six twenty four right okay hearn earn fifty thousand people that didn't vote. They could not vote democrat. You got people that will come back in a feel but these i will be shocked. Ed was when i said i'll say wins at the trump. People go vote. He can't win. How do you vote for that the economy i mean we had a negative g._d._p. G._d._p. is first year negative g._d._p. Second year one point one growth in two thousand eighteen texas at three point three. I mean you start looking at that. I don't see high. I just i there are some people out there but that's all that's all out there. I admit but i think when it comes down to donald trump's gonna be here and i think he's going to be a calling card. It gets beating fifty eight forty two and if you look at the democrats statewide what and go back to mary landrieu's campaign forty four is about amac's number get an estate. Do i do think he can get a little more than that inner off off but i don't think he's more than forty six but if he gets the forty eight you still get beat and <hes> i think some of the laws are gonna catch up to campaign of saying that he funded tops. The governor was the one that presented to cut in tops. He said he funded higher in we see l._s._u. That's the flagship. No cut on you l. Anybody else feick ship. They're down three percent for the year that they said all of budget battles over employments now you can run on unemployment's down obama question would be what did you do to bring it now. Well two things that's happened here. As out migration people quit looking for jobs that will bring unemployment rate. Now was still fifth highs in the country autry. There's just too many things. I think glad when he said and done now. I've been wrong before people laughing. Would you do if you're on a darn thing. I said just you ask scored up. Think i just think there's too many things that go against him to beat them now. The other two candidates a noble fault mr ralph abraham congressman eighty responding as a personal friend redemptorist. It's all it's all family. Hint much of his family members did but he's very familiar with those guys hadn't spent a penny get right okay number two anything negative on which almost four years with the exception of me. I was the only one toews all. Let's go change when they start writing and running ads about what's really going on to send mandanas new orleans. It had midnight man rooch and so i just i still think you did what i'm telling you. It'd be will happen if i'm wrong. I'll be wrong problem with that. I've been wrong before my wife don dailey yeah. I got it right one time. One of my daughters wanted me to ask you <hes>. Who would you like to see up against trump. Which democrat do you think would be the dream candidate canada. There's so many i'll tell you what's got some looney tunes on that side. I'm sorry <hes> it people keep thinking would meet him because he's just old joe but i i don't think the democrats are gonna put up a seventy year light man. I just don't think you're gonna put him up. I think he's looking at kamala harris. I can't see elizabeth warren being the barrier either. I think it's going to be kamala harris grab of obama's wife long. I do not do really. I do think she's still a player i do. I really think she's a player. I think it's going to be somebody like that. <hes> uh trouble beating either one of those at this point but you know trump says a lot in the people i like trump would like for him to quit saying so much the flip side you get a corn. Let somebody call you nazi and a hitler and races every day with no proof. That's that's. I say no proof. That's -pinion. Tell you what i'd be. I'd fight you to try and i think what happens is. He's decided he's going to be a fighter ballroom fighter and he's gonna fight you so you got all this stuff that we've never seen but i've never seen a republican ever fight them back east terms. I mean you can't just holler racism without proven. It hurt my program. Today ed guy very nice but he said you make racial statements and he said i said it's not a racist statement at your opinion. I said you can't call me. A racist says it stick because rates. Maybe think about the real time. Racism is people that think period. We have people like that. We have people that actually do something against against somebody hurt them. Keep them from getting a job because of the color of skin. No that's racist there but because you made a comment yeah that's not ratio show that's not racism and we've reinvented it and now it's a political term that is out there every day and i hate it. Because a guy called my program i was about about the fall i laugh and i said proved then all of a sudden when i tell them to prove it they spit all over him sales and that guy was bailing out because it was proven if i am telling me because i quit my program programming and go into hiding. I thought he was brave to call you well. I've been called before but about how it works. In certain community go to the polls. He was talking. You know i'm not saying that i just i just made a fact with democratic party for many many years. This is the fact they put a lot of money on a street with some pastors not all and community organizers to go by get the black boat out. That's been going on fifty sixty years if that's not racist to say that's going on. You know if he's not going on. Somebody prove me wrong. Nobody's ever proved me wrong. Call decided no repeat he most of the time i get a call from somebody. That's an african american community and said hey i don't. I don't like what you say but you telling the truth so you know i just. I just wished we'd be a little careful with the word route. If it's really true that somebody is hurt somebody of color or off held somebody back from getting a job. Those are racism. That's races acts..

"Back to switch is recapture host chris andy palm here and we're here to review season six episode six of asia shield inescapable 'em yeah this is the fitzsimmons episode that we didn't know we need i i this is one of the ones i had a review i it's it's it it it it feels like we offer the season this is the season that's giving us is relying in not only is it just a season of all this last few seasons have relied heavily on the character development they've put together so far you know it's so funny earlier today we reviewed and we were gonna lose back to back a but some really they view the first part of season three of young justice right in we were talking about how that season and it just it feels so if it works out so well because of what we know of the character in what they do not not from the comics but from what they've done you know on the show itself in that this show that's asian shield doing that again it gives us so much like it's it's a whole episode of basically fits in simmons reestablishing wise fitzsimmons are are basically one well and also this is something where packs how we got here andrews affectively in this in this arms a lot of attention that we kind of could be carried over that got explored season for mhm they did a good job of this using that and also making important market growth for a senate i don't know what i'm talking about subversively so i watched it since i don't watch the second hoses and she just she said i don't think there's a better show on television that better written show on television in that the things that have happened since we've never really seen the fallout of yeah like you're having to offer refreshing it's wearing the shirt that's used very mature sucks the portal to a novice it's it's a it's a paint on her from being a mute slave like yeah she's been through a lot of shit yeah even even like the decision in season five just say were not gonna show really shows a memorial service first kiss first me for call or not gonna show unfair we kind of evil i think we talk a little off of like somebody who's i disagreed with him that stand now see six but now a game and so there's no place for like a week and still cover that even the skin wherever they wait for it wait until cover it and it's it was so nice because if you didn't watch season four or five accuse me that was a refresher but if you did it gives you the payoff 'cause he hit the ground running it's been a year since he eventually last season their space and fed says this is kind of been let's go let's go let's go this is a good moment for the bogus story they say what steel was the rest of this 'cause there is more than just saying it happened is bad let's move on well well to be fair we hit the ground every one and so them going all the way back to when they when when they drown in the winter in the team in unit and they're like fussing in he's like why did you find something doesn't have any like it's a containment units have air and you go through all this on what what they went through all the way back then it's like you're right they they had the moment they came together and you're like oh fitzsimmons they're gonna be together right but this is a couple right communication so key in couple being a couple and being there for each other is why it's so funny to me i would have loved this i would love to know 'cause like this is like a couple of episodes this episode where hey even at you're worse you guys were so there there's sometimes it means disagreeing sometimes it means being angry of as a person but that doesn't mean that you're not you can't facing together in that you need a break up a slight i knew win win hydro fits in the the manifestation everything the that that a m who's going through like making out because that is still there it's still fitzsimmons even at their worst they're still together in 'em when they had the argument and they were like they sort of i love you love you too and you were just like okay so now we got out of the way we could go in face or demons together right yeah okay let's go do that you're just like but that's that's that's that's what successful couples if it doesn't i mean everything sparkling it doesn't mean that everything is blooming and everything works the way it's supposed to work and there's always gonna be that all some communication doesn't mean you won't her each other's i mean there are no ups and downs but at the end of the day good couples come together despite all of that stuff they work it out and then they go in that scene that you you you you work out like he's beating me and i still work it out with him it's like it's like the normal but this is what people mean when they say work things out of the right this is a healthy see see the normal way and i wanna say normal in the show but like this is this is what they mean when when they say that in that's what the show is and just seeing each of them because again i think it was a good like like you said a good reminder you're all of a sudden simmons herself has been through quizzical fits 'cause fits you know had the brain injury to die like we have all this stuff but we've kind of forgotten that you know simmons has been through just as much terrible stuff i we think about going to the plane like that's the big thing but like you said i almost forgot what i can't believe i'm afraid of last season like her being the slave right you know that some there you you have that stuff happening you're like oh wait yeah oh damn she's she's she's been to a fucking like you know the fact that you know it wasn't just that ship sheehan abandon fits win pitches injury it's like there is so much going on at the time and she does what she does she marries her pain she berries and repressive the things that her shorting the market she puts in a box and you know what there's also explain so we always say it's like man yo yo fit susil someone just which puts puts a switch and she turned into like almost like a psychopathic killer like when did it happen you're like oh she worked in the box and then when she needs to see out of the box and go fucking fucking nuts so yeah it's just this is just a really well well done away fits finding out about his own death and then call it that you and i get why she's second because if she seeing how close that mania turns into psychosis mhm yeah she seen among you've been through so much i didn't want overwhelm you he's wildly balkan you're being titles like why this is why yeah yeah i i said she kinda you know the the framework thing kind of stuck with you bring you any not just for you you already have a kind of a damn it rained to begin with because of what happened in the indices one you know so you kind of already are already a little damage so and then you've got hydra fit to honestly i'm sorry do you think you could play in the shadows without me i was terrified is very very terrifying i'm sorry leopold let's call him by his proper name but then her her calling outfits were you made a robot girlfriend oh yeah yeah i i love the fact that he threatened to bring up eight a m that's how you run back adult adult like oh why don't why just go and go and think of ellen de maybe that could help me don't you know i always gives you back and she's she's gone but i shit yeah you like that wasn't that wasn't that wasn't totally right maybe i should kept dealing with a seventy year old it's totally worth it right but again like i said this is in in in in this is why when i told you last week i was like we gotta get a pit sums up on over ready for it that's what i was talking about how saw what they were doing my oh man going through their mind fitzsimmons simmons it's wow it's gonna be wow in like going back looking for what lessons fun but also necessary in eight gives us like you said there there are other season there other shows that would take seasons picks to get fitzsimmons back up to where i mean this is simmons dealing this pitch coming through the terms that paradoxes knox's that he died in in his past but it was a future self will say like it's just it's so much stuff right it's it's so much that gets thrown at him in that would have taken seasons the idea of him finding out that they're already married you know that they then she he already proposed at all the that would have taken that would have been shows whole back half of it are right yeah in this show does it in forty four minutes i forty two minutes right an end gets to the point where were we get that moment when they're just like you know what we are all these things going on but you know what i so love you you still love me let's go out here in also realizing that not just that

"Role, the pediatrician is very important therefore with these families, we must do a better job of communicating at many levels. But particularly. The point of contact at the well child. Visit when vaccinations should take place about half of the time when counseled appropriately parents with vaccine hesitancy will agree to have their children vaccinated on time. And the other half little seems to help with that states. The solution must be earlier either in the form of policy or broader educational efforts. Enclosing I'd like to thank the committee for addressing this important issue vaccine refusal is one of the growing public health threats of our time if we continue to allow non medical exemptions to vaccination the rates of vaccine would continue to fall more outbreaks will undoubtedly follow as a leader at a children's hospital. I have a unique perspective on this. It's children's hospitals are regional and sometimes national resources LeBron children's hospital sits in the corner of Tennessee next to Arkansas and Mississippi three three states all have very different policies for granting exemptions to vaccines, which creates a tremendous problem for us and a threat to the children, we serve many of whom are too young to be vaccinated or immuno-compromised and more prone to. Severe diseases. Dr Jonathan mccullers of the university of Tennessee urged the committee to consider solutions that will both harmonize public health policy in this area. And we'll also protect children as they grow up to become the next generation. Thank you. Thank you, Dr mccullers, Mr. Boyle, welcome. Chairman Alexander ranking member Murray, and then there's the committee. Thank you for inviting me here to testify the importance of herd, immunity or community, immunity as we like to say for vaccine preventable diseases. My name is John Boyle. And I am the president and CEO of the immune deficiency foundation in propagation organization that represents the people with primary immunodeficiency diseases or PI primary immunodeficiency diseases are group of more than three hundred and fifty rare and chronic disorders in which parts of the body's immune system are either missing or functioning improperly there's an estimated two hundred fifty thousand people diagnosed with PI in the US alone. That's about one in twelve hundred of your constituents these disorders are caused by genetic defects and are not contagious. Now, there's a variety between the different forms of. But one thing unites all of us, we are immuno-compromised meaning that we are potentially vulnerable to even comment, viruses and bacteria. Now, I have a form of PI known as excellent a gamma globulin Nimia or XL. A I was diagnosed with it when I was six months old when a respiratory infection. Nearly killed me in short. I don't produce antibodies. But I'm able to be here with you today because I receive weekly infusions of antibodies from other people through blood plasma product called immunoglobulin or I g. These infusions give me back some of what I missing, but I'm still susceptible to infections. Because I was diagnosed early and I receive I g therapy. My health is better than most others. However, simple cold can wreak havoc with me or many other members of our community. We're incredibly vulnerable communicable illnesses. Now for some members of our community infections are truly a life and death matter. I think all of you probably remember David Vetter affectionately known as the boy in the plastic bubble who was born with severe combined immune deficiency or skid children diagnosed with skid accelerate or any other form of these multiple challenges with simple, everyday pathogens, exposing these children to something as severe as measles could be life threatening. Parents and communities were vaccine use is being questioned are afraid send their children outside. They're afraid because they know the history the science and the math, and they know the stakes if people stopped vaccinating the safety net of community immunity will and their children will be among the first casualties. Of course, this does not just affect children it affects adults too while there's now newborn screening for skid. Most members of our community go years or even decades with serious and recurrent infections without knowing that they have a compromised immune system, and I'm particularly concerned for the health of this segment of our community, the undiagnosed if community immunity fails, they don't even know that they need to take precautions. Those of us who know that we have do what we can to avoid exposure to infections, but the undiagnosed lack this basic knowledge in are even more at risk. Now, the reason that all of us are so dependent on community immunity, and the PI community is that vaccines do not work with most of us who have forms of our systems. Either don't remember the pathogens or we physically can't create the antibodies a further complication is that. There are some vaccines are actually dangerous to us live vaccines as a result. Those in the field of immunology have studied this issue thoroughly to produce evidence based guidelines to safeguard those of us a PI. An article that is shared with the committee discusses the issues surrounding which vaccines are either indicated or not, but it also addresses the growing of societal adherence to routine vaccinations. What we're here talking about today, it states how important it is for family members. And then those around patients demand efficiencies to receive all available standard immunizations in order to protect the family member who has PI. Now in closing. Let me say this. My life along with the lives of hundreds of thousands of others who are immuno-compromised depend on community immunity. We depend on vaccines. I understand the concern that some new patient new parents have particularly give the misinformation on social media, but that fear can't override the facts. History has shown us the vaccines work science has shown us. The vaccines are necessary and mathematics has shown us that the odds of children having a healthy life are magnitudes greater if they've had their vaccines. The current decline in vaccine usage is literally bringing back plagues of the past. Well, those of us who are immuno-compromised will suffer. I suffer more the loss of community immunity is a threat to all of us. We need to band together to dispel the myths combat misinformation campaigns and help ensure that measles and other vaccine. Preventable. Diseases are once again put in their place in history books and not in our communities. Thank you. Thank you, Mr. Boyle. Mr. linen burger, welcome. German Alexander Senator Murray and distinguish many members the opportunity to speak today. Good morning, everyone as I stated my name is Ethan Lyndon burger and senior in high school, and my mother is an anti vaccine advocate vaccines cause autism, brain image and did not benefit the health and safety society. Despite the fact such opinions have been debunked numerous times by the scientific community. I want my entire life without numerous vaccines against these such as measles chickenpox reading polio. However in December eighteen catching up on my misdemeanors stations despite my mother's disapproval. Eventually we need to to the story and being able to speak here today, and I'm very happy. Thank you. Now. It's understand why I've come here. And what I really want to talk about. I have to some details about my home life. My upbringing. I grew up understanding my mother's beliefs. That vaccines are dangerous, and she was being openly about these views both online and in person. She would voice her concerns, and these beliefs were met with strong criticism over the course of my life seats, doubts were planted and questions arose because of the the backlash my mother would receive but over time that really didn't lead anywhere now, it's important to understand as I approached high school and began to critically think for myself. I saw that the information in defensive vaccines outweighed the concerns heavily. I began leading to make clubs my school and pursuing through the bubble else. And I realized one certain quality to debates and two conversations general when it comes to controversial discussions, which is that there seems to always be sides to a discussion. There always seems to be a counterclaim or rebuttal and always something to strike back with in terms of debate. This may seem true in all instances, this is not true for the vaccine debate, and I propose my approach my mother with this concern that she was incorrect. I approach my mother numerous times trying to explain that vaccines are safe in my family should be vaccinated. Approaching even with articles in the CDC explicitly claiming that ideas that vaccines cause autism. And a streaming dangerous consequences were incorrect and one such instance, where I approach my mother with information from the CDC that claims vaccines cause autism. She responded with what they want. You to think skepticism and worry were taking the forefront in terms of. Information Norwalk high school student. Ethan Linden burger out conversations like these reaffirmed the evidence defensive vaccines was at least on any level much greater than the deeply rooted misinformation my mother interacted with and that's what I want to focus on today. To combat preventable disease. Outbreaks information is in my mind, the forefront of this matter. My mother would turn to anti vaccine groups online and on social media looking for her evidence and defense rather than health officials and through credible. Sources this may seem to be in malice because of the dangers that not vaccinating imposes. But this is not the case of my mother came in a sense of letting her children and being concerned. This misinformation spreads and that's not necessarily justifiable. But I carry this knowledge with me that it was with respect and love thy degrees. My mother and with the information she provided I continued to try and explain that it was misinformed. Ideas that again vaccines cause autism brain damage and also that the measles outbreak is of no concern to the society into America.
