"Have someone on the show who has done more for animals than anybody really ever, I. Think She's spent. She's devoted her life and the last forty years to animals She's also a a heroin of mine. might as well. She is the amazing Ingrid newkirk. She's the CO founder and president of the largest animal rights organization in the world. PITA. People for the ethical treatment of animals which you and I were talking about earlier, which is actually called. It's a we decided that it was a generic. which. Means that you know when you say, could you hand me a Kleenex what you really mean is a facial tissue, but we say Kleenex or could you xerox that? It means you want a copy it, but you use the brand name because the brand name is so ubiquitous. Well, pita has become basically a generic association of Animal Rights CEO. You and I are Peter People were out there on the streets there. Just people so out of it. Exactly. So she really helped 'em rights become main stream, and she's not afraid of making us all uncomfortable and doing what it takes to wake people up to what's going on with animals she. She's written ten books and we're GONNA talk about her latest book animal kind today She's really just a force and a fount of knowledge of all things animals and how we can treat them better and why we should. So Ingrid newkirk. Thank you so much for being on the show today. Well thank you very much for having me. Oh, very very kind, and I wouldn't have been able to do anything to roll. If everybody else hadn't shipped in and it hadn't a struck a chord with them and they hadn't sought a Har-. Yes. I believe that or I can do that or glad to know that. Let me get cracking. So thank you very much and I. Don't mean to make people uncomfortable. It's just that we do an awful lot of things that we shouldn't do, and sometimes we haven't a clue that we do them. So we have to say hi Nana minute do something else. Quick Fan girl moment. Okay. Tell you about. So at the mercy for animals circle, the the first one. So the one that was before you and I hung out. So this might have been four years ago. I was speaking a little athlete panel thing and Ingrid was on the legends panel before me and I I mean I had. Well, I? Don't think we still have ever met in person. You know we have and I would remember So she comes off stage and is just leaving right? I'm coming on and I passed by her and she's like. Oh my gosh, that is a lovely stress I've ever seen and I was like. I didn't even say anything I was on. said. My dress was awesome. Only I don't even know. Total Fan. Girl moment. Thanks. I should've stopped and been a big girl. I mean like Hi Nice to me. I couldn't. I just couldn't even do anything. So yeah. There's a fan girl moment. What's yours? You have one I. I have always adored her my brother knew her before I. Did she has been a huge force in our family and just a real guiding light and. I will tell you actually injured when I was twelve I went to confirmation class and I. Learned this quote that really stuck with me and I thought that's going to be my mantra and it was when in doubt do what Jesus would do the kindest thing, and then was I, got older. I lost any sense of religion or. I admire Jesus as a person, but I I changed the The quote to win doubt do the kindest thing, and then I saw a quote of yours, which was be kind be kind become kind and I decided to adopt that as my. Mantra because it was more concise than. Can't take credit for that. It was John Goals were they who actually said that and he said the three things that are important in life all the first to be kind the second to be kind Eliza. and to me that sums it all up. Because if you can live by that, you've got it. Made I. mean the Della Lama said he didn't care if you had any religion or none. The best religion of oil is kindness it is. It goes across all the spectrums of everything. And the your your new book actually also has that word in an animal kind and it's a really really special book because. It teaches us that animals have their own humans are. So we we base. We measure everything against our own standards of quote intelligence of if someone can't have a a being cannot read than we think, Oh, they're not as good as us even if they can run ten times faster than us and Ingrid's book is whole beautiful at showing the amazing things that animals can do. Absolutely I into to quiz, we want to go into the book and then we're GonNa go backwards some. But that's such a great point and just over arching theme of Ingrid why do you think people are so fiercely uncomfortable with the uncomfortable because as you were saying. If we say somebody isn't as intelligent as we are. We say, Oh okay. Whatever their lesser then, but we don't rape kill and murder them because they're they're they're less smart. We do that with animals and we say, oh, but they're not as intelligent I mean, that's kind of people's main. Reason and and defense. Why is it made people so uncomfortable to compare themselves to animals and may become out on the other side, which is, Oh, wow, we're we are the same. Why is that so uncomfortable? We'll we have raped and killed lots of other human beings that we thought were lesser than. We thought they will other. I? mean. We've done terrible things, and at this moment when we're looking at racial injustice issues so much under the microscope, your heart can break into a thousand pieces for the things that have been done especially as perhaps to women who were routinely raped by master down on the plantation and to the children's sold away from their mothers and so on, and to actually buy and sell human beings as if they were commodities and the things we've done to people with. Disabilities to oftens to you name it. So yes, we have done that it's just we've been dragged kicking and screaming sometimes. Sometimes, it's taken a war to get us to a point where we've stopped misbehaving and those abominable ways. So now I think people are so desperate always to build themselves up and often at the expense of those others..

"To Indiana's referendum laws that end up saving communities a whole lot of money. And if you're w IDC rob KENDALL KENDALL show. Thanks for joining us on Twitter at Robin KENDALL. As you know for a very long time. Now, I have railed against the referendum process in the state of Indiana. Of course, that's the process by which school corporations can put to a public question, whether they can violate your right? Your constitutional right to tax caps and raise your taxes above the cap rate and look the referendum statute was put in place. We've talked about this many times for emergency purposes when they put the tax caps into the Indiana constitution, the voter said we want to protect school corporations in case of an emergency like a roof caves in or some catastrophic event happens inside the school pipes freeze. Whatever referendums were never intended. They were never intended to supplement the daily existence of a school corporation, the tax cuts were put in place to mandate that school corporations get their act together and stop taxing people to death and the. Their homes were not personal piggy banks, but school corporations very quickly figured out that intent doesn't matter. It's what the language actually says what the law provides them to do. And they realized in tennis. I'd they could get fifty percent of the vote plus one they could just ignore the tax caps. Tuck for very long time about needs me the need to make major changes to the Reverend random statute and the state of Indiana and two senators, God bless them. They're trying to do just that the Senate Bill to forty six Senator Blake Doro Senator Victoria, sparks Senator Doria we start with you. This is your Bill. What's it say, well, the referendum random Bill came to me from from local people and local businessman who may own property in a in an area, but they can't vote because they don't live their son of some of the Mon tens of millions of dollars of property, and they asked that they wanted it to the general election where more people can participate in the American process, and that's anywhere from two and a half to three times as many people vote in the in the fall general than in the primary. So we move this forward to start that conversation. Okay. So so right now if a school system. Wants to put forward a referendum, and I guess any government body could do this. It's mostly school systems that do they can do it. And what we call these off your elections, which are they can do him in the primary, and they can do him an off year elections, and they do this in part because fewer people turn out to vote. Right. I mean, they're banking on their people are gonna come out and vote regardless and they want people to be voting at large that aren't used to voting. So it plays in their favor. That's my understanding and the other thing that's even worse is when they call special election and the only thing on the ballot or they have a municipal election that takes people outside the municipality for the question, and they just don't know what's happening and it passes. Senator Blake Doro Senator Victoria sparks our guest here. We're talking about Senate Bill to forty six which deals with referendums. Some big changes to referendums. I'd like to just read the synopsis of the Bill before we get into a little bit more detail on it it provides that except as otherwise specifically provided by statute, a local public question may be placed on the ballot at the following elections won the general election, which we talked about which gets it out of the primary in which which most people are not used to voting in and to and this is the one that I really like a municipal general election. But only if the election district for the public question is contained entire. Early within a municipality. And basically what that means is if you're Brown's work school corporation, the town of Brownsword has municipal elections in two thousand nineteen but the county area, which includes browser school corporation does not those people don't know to normally vote you're saying you're not pulling the rug from under people anymore. I love that. Yeah. That was that was one of the main things because you should have a right to vote, and you do but most people who live in a non municipal area don't have a reason to vote that year, and they're not used to voting that year. So they they don't come out. I can't tell you in two thousand fifteen when we beat the referendum and Browns Berg, how many people in the county area that I didn't even know there was anything to vote on. I didn't even know that there was any devoted if you hadn't come to my door. I would've never known because they never had anything to vote. And it's totally sneaky what these guys are doing. I don't know sneaky it's in the law. So they're they're playing they're running the referendums by the letter of the law, Victoria. You're in big sport of this bell, Senator sparks what about this Bill that you like, what do you think it'll do to benefit tax payers in education and in Indiana. Well, it's kind of interesting I've been involved in an audit in public accounting for a number of years in we'd do lie, you know, to audit private companies, private individuals were all talk about public interest, protect transparency and clarity. And we spent a lot of time and resources and doing that and the request to live. But it seems like when we talk about the government, we don't really like to do it to ourselves. So I think we need to be honest and clear was our constituents and have a transparency and make our case and clarity. So when I saw that Bill I thought it was actually very good. And I suggested some scenarios where do we need to add some clarity to the language. Now, it talks about just some sense, you know, tax increase in some sense. And you know, send sounds very material right to vote for that. It's just a couple Sam not not, you know, it's just ten cents fifteen fans. No one reads, the whole thing. So I said, well, we need to be honest about it. And maybe add the language. What exactly your rate is going to be an the magnitude of increases a fifty percent increase eighty percent increase hundred percent increase. So voters do understand it because that a show as they have to make. But as government would have to be more transparent, and I I will quote, della Lama, okay? He said a lack of transparency results in distrust and deep sense of insecurity. And I think it's very important for us to have trust was our people, even if we have to make the tough decisions for them as a tax increases. And I understand her a school say there is there is not enough flexibility. But they also have to set looking at finances and. People need to understand how much they're pain our guest senators, Blake Dory. Oh as well. Senator Victoria sparks. We're talking about Senate Bill to forty six which would bring big changes to referendums across the state of Indiana. Where's the Bill at now? Senator dory. Oh, and what are the odds that we see something maybe not this exact Bill, but something and get some of these changes like see move forward this year while we were in committee this week and the chairman, and I we talked a little bit and made the decision to withdraw the call on the Bill. I would like my leg which to move forward. But I believe that Senator sparks language is much more able to move forward. And I wanted her language to live if we had gone through the vote would have been very close. If I would have lost Senator sparks language would die, and I want to keep that going. So we can possibly amend that into another Bill somewhere. Yeah. And I love Senator sparks what you're doing with this. Because as you said. They'll tell people, oh, it's only so many cents. But when you multiply that out, you know, on a three hundred thousand dollar home a lot of people would get these bills. Go will the school corporation told me, you would only be eight dollars a month and now eight hundred dollar increase in my tax Bill. I it appears I've been to see exactly, but you know, and that's why we have to be honest. You know, and if we demand from everyone else to be honest and follow the laws, which would apply to Laura's through the government to in our coach has to be transparent real quick while we've got you here. Do you believe that a lot of your colleagues understand the impact that these referendums have on the tax payers? I mean, a lot of these senators represent more affluent areas, you know, they're doing very well. And I wonder if they actually understand the ramifications of a 'cause there was supposed to be for emergencies. Now the school corporations just use them left. And right. They use them for daily operations. They use them for teachers, which was never. For the antenna, these things do your colleagues understand the impact these referendums are having on communities. Yes, they do. Now, we have to get the political will and the backing of I'll say we the people to to help them have the courage to move forward. I'm not saying there's there's there's cowardice here. But there's been a lot of pressure from organizations to stop this Bill. And you know, some of them have have decided that well, maybe this isn't the one that this isn't the hill. I'm gonna die on which I understand. And I I have no problems with them doing that. We all have to make political choices. If if we on on our side all die on the same hill who carries on. There's no one left to fight about. Oh, and I I understand, you know, this is inherent problem is politics to be more shortsighted in the influenced by short-term decisions. And they're just not as common, right? This is just how it is. But I still believe we have a lot of with people that will into look. On a fiscal soundness of our state not just for next two years, but for many years to come and also look and try to address some of these concerns, I think at some even local people even people that support data and understand that Aniston any taxes on your house. It's actually make Savell you decree. Right. It's an cumbersome your. So this is Samson when you said selling your house, and you try to move somewhere else. Everyone is going to look at your taxes in the higher. They are the less value. You're going to get so it's important for us to help. But understand that it's not it's actually a detriment could be potential, and then when this communities compete with each other, and they have to decide to you know, even though school decisions are made by schools. I mean local decisions and consoles in. Now, they will have to take a look and see. Okay. As why is a developer is not. Common. Why don't have grows? Why this business is not common? Because at some point the business is going to do that cost benefit analysis. And we don't do it very well and in government business does so they get out of business. We'll never get out of business whenever and out of money, but any business person is going to look, and it's much easier for politicians, you know, because to and I think it's a problem that we have, you know, we put costs, and if you right put her, you know, causing the law benefit fewer rights, I think sometimes it's opposite to but anyway, so that is a challenge. But I believe we have at least to start moving in incremental ways. How politics works. Well. Thank you both for being with the stake in the Bill is Senate Bill to forty six Senator Victoria sparks a Senator Blake Dory. Oh, thank you for having the courage, but this Bill Ford and thanks for being with us today. Thank you. Thank you very much Senate Bill to forty six. It's a good one.
