Well, I've talked to a bunch of people who know her pretty well, Alan Simpson, the former senator, was against on my podcast this week. And he says she's not going away. They were talks about her running for president in 2024 and as wild as that sounds. I mean, nobody thinks she can get the Republican nomination, but she's very determined to make sure that Donald Trump does not return to The White House. Everything she's done on the January 6th committee is part of that effort to keep him from returning to politics and perhaps a presidential run would be part of that process. What interests you most about Liz Cheney? Well, you know, it's amazing. I mean, not that long ago, you think of Liz Cheney as, you know, a dying trumper. She voted with him 90% of the vote. I don't know, any Democrat in the world who liked her, let alone would vote for her. And the fact that one, you know, what she saw what happened on January 6th, she's one of the ten Republicans in the House to vote to impeach, to impeach the president, and the president, of course, will never accept that kind of criticism without lashing out and going on as revenge tour. But the fact that Liz Cheney has suddenly she's still a conservative. She's still a Republican. She's still believes in very strong conservative principles. Yet she doesn't believe that Donald Trump deserves another term in The White House given what he's done, you know, regarding his efforts to upend democracy. So the thought of Liz Cheney

"For a new connection in a divided city with hope for help from the feds. From ABC News, I'm Daria alberger. Wyoming congresswoman Liz Cheney says she put her country before her party. No House seat. No office in this land is more important than the principles that we are all sworn to protect. And I well understood the potential political consequences of abiding by my duty. And now one of the few Republicans to openly criticize former president Trump is projected to lose a state's primary. In front of a crowd of her supporters here in a hay field of the cattle ranch, Liz Cheney accepting her loss, but vowing to continue the fight against Donald Trump saying she will work to make sure he never steps foot in the Oval Office again. This primary election is over. But now the real work begins. Former vice president Dick Cheney looked on as his daughter conceded here. Alex stone, ABC News Jackson Wyoming. An Alaska Republican senator Lisa Murkowski faces 18 challengers in a ranked choice primary election, the top four vote getters will be on the ballot in November.

ABC News has learned the FBI has interviewed former White House counsel pat cipollone and former deputy council pat philbin regarding the document stored at mister Trump's home in Florida. President Biden signed the inflation reduction act, which includes money for climate change, healthcare, and tax reform. This is going to raise taxes on the wealthiest U.S. corporations, 15% minimal minimum corporate tax on them and individuals making over $400,000 a year, but some critics say if you start taxing big corporations who employ people, that might cause them to hold back in other areas, so some critics are saying this is a bit of an overreach by the government.

Jill Wine-Banks Explains What Goes Into Getting a Search Warrant
"Can you explain as a prosecutor? Jill, what a lot of people have said is do you know how much evidence there has to be for a judge to sign off on a search warrant for the home of a former president. We talked about this with Jeffrey Clark and John eastman that for a lawyer of a president, there's got to be a high bar. Can you explain what just happened yesterday? It's a high power for any American citizen. To be subjected to a search. And a judge will take even extra caution if it happens to be somebody who happens to be the former president of the United States. The bar is very high. It isn't the same as what it would take to convict at a trial, which is beyond a reasonable doubt. But probable cause means it's more probable than that. And remember, there is a judge who has already found that Don eastman and Donald Trump more probably than not, more likely than not, committed a crime. As far as the reporting here, we can, I would say, conclude that the reason for this search had to do with missing documents that were wrongfully taken from The White House and kept at Mar-a-Lago. Some of those are highly classified and pose a national security threat. We don't know if those are the ones that they were looking for. We don't even know for sure that it was documents that belong to the government and not to Donald Trump that they're looking for. But we do know whatever they were looking for if they find other things that are evidence of crime. They can take them if they're in plain sight. They have to be within the exact precincts of what the subpoena said. So if the subpoena says they can search a safe, they can search his office, they can search his bedroom. All of that is fine. That means they can't go into the lobby. It means they can't go into the bed, whatever room isn't named. But if they find something there, then in the places that are specified, it's fair game.

"Campaign 2022 on WTO, Alaska and Wyoming are holding big primary elections right now. In Alaska, Republican senator Lisa Murkowski faces some political headwinds over her vote to convict Donald Trump in early 2021. Trump has made Murkowski big target he held rally in Alaska earlier this summer where he was really targeting Murkowski. Murkowski just has to make it to the top four tonight where she can get through to the general in November. But Murkowski is known as that swing vote, Republicans have said that she has quote enabled Democrats. But when you look at polls and when polls account for the rank choice vote, system in Alaska, it shows her ahead but only barely on Shabbat and that could be a benefit of the ranked choice voting system, which some Trump critics have blamed Murkowski for pushing to get and still. That CBS reporter Aaron Navarro also in Alaska one time GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is running for the right to fill the rest of the term of the late congressman Don young. Meantime in Wyoming, GOP congresswoman Liz Cheney could get unseated as backlash for her role as vice chair of the House committee investigating the capitol riot. Many voters there are upset with her blistering criticism of former president Trump, but some Democrats are actually switching parties to vote in the Republican race, Washington Post politics reporter amber Phillips tells us that will not be enough to make a difference for Cheney. My colleague Paul king talked to strategists in the Satan said she'd need 40,000 Democrats, most likely to switch over. And we just haven't seen those numbers in registration. That would be a huge grand swallow democratic support for this really, really conservative. Let's not forget Republican member Congress. She was being talked about as maybe the next Republican House speaker. And now it's likely she will lose her job in Congress. Last week, a university of Wyoming polls showed Cheney trailing her challenger Harriet hagerman by a staggering 29 point margin. COVID has interrupted the first family South Carolina vacation First Lady Jill Biden has tested positive for the virus, and that's prompted the president to change some plans. Her aides say the First Lady tested positive after experiencing mild cold symptoms. She's now on a course of pax lovid, which her husband took when he was diagnosed last month. Doctor Biden is expected to stay in South Carolina where the first family has been vacationing, her husband was due to return to Washington to sign the climate healthcare and tax bill that backers named the inflation reduction act. In which he has already done that CBS White House correspondent Stephen portnoy. Knew this afternoon, reports that the FBI interviewed both The White House counsel and his deputy in connection with the boxes of classified material being stored at former president Trump's Florida estate. New York Times reports pat cipollone and Patrick philbin are the most senior people in the Trump administration who were known to have been interviewed by investigators. When the national archives realized they did not have White House documents that were required by law to preserve, they contacted philbin, the deputy White House council to help retrieve the material. Sources tell the times the former president repeatedly insisted the items belonged to him, not the national archives, a spokesperson for philbin has not responded to a request for comment.

Law Enforcement Have to Treat Trumpian Republicans Like the Mob
"Talk to us about J 6 in terms of Scott Perry's phone. He said this morning while traveling with my family, three FBI agents, visited me and sees my cell phone. They made no attempt to contact my lawyer who would have made arrangements for them to have my phone if that was their wish. Prosecutors obviously preferred that to go the subpoena route if they fear evidence could be destroyed or not turned over. Same reason they got a warrant for Mar-a-Lago, right? Absolutely. They thought there was a very, very high probability. These things would be destroyed. They would erase the signal chats, or they would go through their phone and put it on a decal. In eliminate all history of these records. So it was very important for them to seize these quickly. So that there wasn't a criminal intent by people like, you know, you know, these people who have been who are under investigation for attempting to overthrow the United States that this is a level of criminality you see Enrico cases. This is how they treat mafia Dons and drug lords. And that's the level where Trump just took the 5th this morning and he is on record a zillion times saying only the mob takes the 5th.

Rep. Jim Jordan: Jan. 6 Panel Has Told at Least Eight Lies, Maybe More
"Saw you on newsmax the other night. And you were weighing in on the J 6 panel and you said they've been caught in 8 different lives. What are those lies? Well, they lied about Bernie Carrick's travels. They lied about very loud on the colleague of mine. They lied about the tour he gave to constituents. They lied about Jenna Ellis documents. They lied about Eric hershman, White House lawyer, the light about the note written Cathy Hudgens that she wrote it and there was a person said, no, no, I actually wrote that note. They lied about the Secret Service. We've had Secret Service come forward and say that what she testified to was not accurate. And they lied about me twice, they lied about a text message I had forwarded to The White House chief of staff. They said it was from me, a member of Congress when it wasn't. I had forwarded to him from a respected lawyer former inspector general for Don rumsfeld. And then they also took a video quickly where I was on Fox News talking and I was on Maria bartiromo show and the video clip started off with me saying January 6th is the ultimate data significance in a presidential contest. What they left off was the sentence right before that where I said the late justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said that January 6th is the ultimate date of significance in a presidential context because that's when you actually approve the electors. And that changes the entire context of that statement. So we saw that and then, of course, maybe the most important was when Zoe lofgren I remember the committee said, we don't corroborate witnesses testimony. And they didn't ask pat cipollone when he was deposed if what Cassie Hutchinson said about him was true. And his lawyer reported afterwards that if he had been asked to say it wasn't. So that's 8 different false things we've gotten from this committee. And Todd, we don't get to see the evidence. We don't get to sitting on the depositions. We don't get access to the transcripts of the video, the documents they have. We don't get any chance across examine. And so imagine how many other lives they've told the American people if we've caught him in 8 with that limited amount of ebb and we get to see.
Caller: Democrats Are the Most Vile Party out There
"No, I'm doing fine. So you neglected to say the cesspool of Democrats in Chicago. That's where I'm from. I just want to compliment you. I really enjoy your show. However, I want to make a comment about what you're seeing. Republicans shot back a long time ago. It's like the bully in high school. That's what they do. I agree a 100%. Pushback. They are the most vile party out there. It's embarrassing. They have been part of this country. There's a cruelty to what they do, Don. I was watching the video this morning, Fox News of these illegals in the middle of a river with a baby slung over one of the women's shoulder and they're terrified. I mean, you know, some of these many of these illegals drown, they die, they die of heat, you know, dehydration and all that. When you have open borders, what do we think is going to happen? The cruelty. Exactly. The cruelty of their party policies is a astounding. They're a cruel and vicious and mean bunch. Not all of them, but many of them, but most of them are, I agree, a 100% with you. It's about time the Republicans stand tall. I like Mike, you know, I like Jordan. I like his attitude. I like what Matt Gaetz does. That's what we need to do more of. And look at Mitch McConnell. You look at him. It looks like he's going to burst into tears any second. Can you imagine him pushing back at anybody? Well,

Why Are the Media Not Talking About Hunter Biden?
"I have a question for you guys. Why are they not talking about Hunter Biden's laptop? Why are they not talking about the evidence? Of a president, his son, that is apparently picking up hookers and using illegal drugs and also in some of the images he's holding the firearm. I don't understand how some people get away with certain things and others are held to account. And I know every single person under the side of my voice has heard the trash that they talk or they spoke on the name of Don Junior and the mere perception that he was doing something nefarious with Russians, which an investigation yielded that he wasn't. But even the mere perception make the headlines, his son was a bad actor, working with Russia should go to prison. I mean, they went through the gamut of the things that Trump Junior should have been convicted of.
Charlie Welcomes Congressman Ted Budd, Senate Candidate for NC
"I love North Carolina, it's one of the nicest states in the entire country. North Carolina, the tar heel state, has some phenomenal people, and we have with us right now, someone who is running to become the next senator from North Carolina and not allow a Democrat to win. Ted Budd is with us. Ted, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Charlie, it's great to be with you and I first met you in North Carolina. Back when Nancy Pelosi put me on her list of 33 members of Congress, Republicans to eliminate back in 2018, member of the top year for Republicans and Don Junior, U came into Davidson county, right there in the middle of North Carolina and campaigned for me and really appreciate that. I remember that very well. So tell us about your race and I mean, North Carolina is experiencing a lot of the same sort of issues, the country is experiencing rising crime, inflation, talk about some of the top issues that you're running in campaigning on that are affecting North Carolina voters. You know, historically, you've seen somebody have to change from the primary over to the general, but you don't really have to do that in this race because the issues are still the same. And it's two main issues. One of the things that I did among all the Democrats that were running really who just consolidated around sherry Beasley. And we had a big primary that we had to navigate through on the Republican side. But we went to all 100 counties far west in the mountains, the corners and the east of North Carolina and talked to folks all across the spectrum in the two issues, Charlie, that keep coming up. One is inflation. I mean, even today, we're seeing new inflation numbers and yet have increased again. It's now 9.1% over the prior 12 months. And we're coming into next month where parents are preparing for back to school. They're going to have to decide they're going to put groceries on their table or are they going to buy new clothes and new backpack for their kids going to school? So these are real decisions that are affecting folks. Construction businesses trying to keep the doors open with the rise of the material cost. And then the other issue we're seeing, it has to do with crime. And a lot of that crime Charlie starts at the border because what sheriffs in North Carolina are telling me is every single county is now a border county because of Joe Biden's open border

"We have these new videos coming out him negotiating a crack deal whatever it is I mean this is the kind of thing that we started talking about hypocrisy I mean can you imagine for a moment if this was Don Junior or Eric or Ivanka I mean a God forbid on tape negotiating some crack deal in a ziploc bag when what appears to be some hooker or a prostitute I mean this is the kind of thing in any past political life I mean you remember when it was a controversy when Bill Clinton he smoked pot of but I didn't inhale My gosh now you're like a superhero with the Democrats if you smoke pot This is a devastating story but doesn't it create a blackmail crisis What else could be out there with this guy Yeah and it's not even shocking at this point unfortunately with everything that we know about hunter And you're right if this were the Trump kids it would be all over mainstream media This would be the worst thing and Trump would be impeached for another time and everything But the bigger story I think Dan is the story that came out last week that Joe Biden is selling off our oil reserves to China that the company that actually procured those Hunter Biden may still have an interest in I mean this is the type of stuff that actually is genuinely impeachable offenses where Joe Biden is intentionally not following U.S. law and he's intentionally not caring about the safety and security of American first He's caring more about his own foreign business interests and is beholden clearly to China I mean these are things that are incredibly scary that no one besides you Tucker Carlson you know me on my show a few of us are willing to actually cover and speak the truth but this is why media alternatives are growing so big and what Joe Rogan's podcast is huge because people are sick and tired of just hearing from the lame Democrats who refuse to cover these stories fairly and talk about the issues that really matter
Charlie Reacts to the Political Assassination of Japan's Shinzo Abe
"Shinzo Abe, the Japanese prime minister has been assassinated and has been killed. Shinzo Abe was a nationalist. He loved his country. He wrote in late April quote the United States should make it clear it will defend Taiwan against Chinese invasion. Abe did not want to play ball with the globalists. He said, quote, maybe the war could have been avoided if zelensky had been forced to pledge that his country would not join NATO or had been forced to grant a high degree of autonomy to loop Luhansk or Don sketch in the east. Abe noted according to The Economist. Shinzo Abe was close with Donald Trump. It was probably the closest prime minister. Of anybody with Donald Trump is the first major leader to meet with Trump. You might remember Donald Trump doing a foreign visit to Japan. They both agreed that China and the Chinese Communist Party must be restrained in their growth. And yesterday, a gunman came up behind Shinzo Abe and killed him. This is the first first world assassination. I think in well over ten to 15 years, we have not seen a first world assassination a successful first world assassination in quite some

Dinesh Answers Some Important Questions About Voter Fraud
"To our first question. Hey, Dan, so two quick questions. The first one you said Republicans did pretty well in 2020. But it was Trump that lost. So my question is, you know, if those were illegal ballots, you know, why do you think Republicans did well? I mean, why not go all out and just make them all, you know, Democrat ballots, and then just make it more sweeping. So that's kind of a question I have is why only Trump and, you know, people would vote for Republicans, otherwise. Secondly, regarding those two women that are those two people, I think they're women that were arrested in Yuma, Arizona. They're arrested for trafficking, so it looks like upon reading it, they just collected them illegally and deposited them in a drop box. I don't think there was anything that alluded to multiple drop boxes, you know, 20, 30, 40 a night, or anything like that. So so far, it's great that they were caught, but not about nothing about multiple dropboxes. So again, that the volume of fraud doesn't appear to be there. At least in those two cases, thank you. Yeah, these are both really good questions and already of a higher caliber than some of the so called fact check issues that are raised that I've been answering on the podcast. Let me deal with them one by one. On the issue of the Don ballots, we raise it in the movie. In fact, I myself say that it is an argument against fraud that Trump lost by down ballot Republicans did pretty well. And so that is put out there for people to recognize in act one in the very opening minutes of the movie. Now, sometimes when you have a theory, you're able to sort of go back and apply it to puzzles that were there at the beginning and it immediately resolves them. But at other times you have a theory that doesn't speak to the issue. And I think this is a case where the argument of 2000 meals or the evidence of 2000 meals doesn't really resolve how that anomaly occurred. And here's what I mean. It is possible that the altered ballots or the fraudulent ballots were voted democratic all the way down. They weren't just votes for Biden, but they were votes straight down the ticket for Democrats. And so even though there was fraud to that degree, the degree of the cheating shown in the movie in Trump's case, the fraud was enough to defeat Trump, so Trump lost Georgia. But the fraud was not enough to change the down ballot outcome. So some other Republicans in places like Arizona, Georgia, still did pretty well. And obviously
"don " Discussed on Don Talk
"This story around here, kind of shows you how sometimes I'm I'm just really out of touch with certain things. It's an article over at NPR I think my daughter, actually shared it avengers. But make it without women or men hugging, or levity in general, I was like, what the hell is this? So there is an apparently this has been done before. They're someone out there that is editing avengers in game. It's a modified pirate version of the film, and they're removing, like Brielle Larssen as captain marvel and pretty much anything else in the film that is seen as feminist or gay. It's an anonymous fan that edited out shots he edited out or or she. But I'm going to presume, it's a he ended out scenes and characters in what is called a quote, defend in quote version that is now circulating around on an illegal streaming site. So we've lost Larson's character. We're missing a scene, where Hawkeye teaches his daughter to shoot, quote young women should learn skills to become good wives and mothers, and leave the fighting to men in quote, that is the editor making a statement in an accompanying document the role of Black Panther as minimize because, quote, he's really not that important Spiderman doesn't get rescued by women characters anymore, quote, no need to and the male characters if there was any hugging in any of the scenes those were cut and the reason why I said, I guess I've just been at their certain things. I just don't pay attention to this is just the latest example of a trend according to Susan Scott professor of film and media studies at the university of Texas, a similar chauvinist. Cut in quotes of two thousand seventeen Star Wars, the last Jetta removed key scenes of women making decisions giving orders having ideas and fighting in battle. So much was trim Cording Scott that only about thirty percent of the original film remained. She said, quote, it is borderline. Line incomprehensible. It has cut out a lot of story that you need to make the whole narrative cohesive. So what's on the screen plays, lack of Enggaard film? So, apparently, these, you know, an edit of favorite films, not news is long as we're going to have access to movies and editing tools. We're going to have these things, right. According to the article about twenty years ago, there was a fan in a professional film editor named Mike j Nichols, he edited out a widely despised character. From Star Wars Episode episode one the final minutes, and of course, is jar jar Binks, because the character of charger beings had been critiqued as a racist, stereotype, so his version, is known as the phantom edit. And then it was quickly dubbed and it actually earned a fair amount of attention in respect in Hollywood allegedly, allegedly even from within George Lucas zone. Studio, not necessarily George Lucas himself, but from within studio, but that's different. That's a completely different tone than a definitive, edit Scott goes on to say that the emergence of misogynistic, homophobic, and racist cuts blockbuster films, reflects, one particular threat of what's happening within fan communities. And in the larger culture, quote, I think what we've seen as fan culturing, Dc culture, moved from the margins to the mainstream is that a particular set, and I should note, a small percentage of predominantly white straight male. Fans feel like their culture that they had ownership and claim over for many, many generations is sort of slipping away from them as that culture, gets bigger and inevitably more diverse. I don't know. I mean, other than the fact that it's a pirate version of the movie. I mean, there there's legalities here that, that have to be considered a beyond that, once you can get over those hurdles. I mean the the person's got every right to do what they want to they've got there. They've got a right to express their opinion. What they don't have a right to do in this case is to take intellectual property, aka movie doing edit and then put it out on streaming sites, especially when the movie hasn't even been made available outside of the theatrical releases yet. So, like I said, barring the legality issue, we're going to have assholes we're, we're going to have assholes and as a as a white straight. Southern dude, I was born and raised in south central Georgia right here in the bible Bill where you are taught in a good Christian home, where the man is the head of the household and the woman does what the man says is she? Is essentially to be to, to speak when she spoken to. And the man makes all the decisions is, she should just shut up and go into the kitchen and make food and clean the house and take care of the kids. I wasn't raised that way, though, I have been exposed to it and jerks, like this that feel like they need to edit a movie because there's too much woman power in it. They're, they're gonna find themselves that they already are finding themselves on the wrong side of history. And I don't know what else I can really say about this, except that they're entitled to their opinions, but they suck. And that's it for today's show. I wanna thank audio not been sound dot com and Kevin McCloud, as I use some of their music at various times throughout the show under the creative.

"About. Encourages me to do more of it. I think we need more of it. I think we the thing that I've been curious about. And again, like I said, I've been very hesitant is do, we have more people down here that are like us than not? And are we doing a disservice by being quiet? Should we should we take that, that stance that we take that, that step to reach out and go? Hey look you know I'm wearing the armor. I know I'm probably going to get some shit, but are there other people out there like us? And if so, here, we're your tribe, come on. Yeah. I thought about that a lot too with do know. Trae crowder. Yeah. The well read tour. Yeah. Those boy, I love them. I love them because there's so like they're genuine southern good ole boys, but who are intelligent, and who are open minded, and who are having this conversation and or selling out. Like selling out shows over the country now. And they represent us. Just as much old white guys who are running. When I saw the whatever that, that one original video that kind of went viral on Facebook that he did. And I saw that liberal redneck. And I got tickled like dude, you ate the original liberal redneck, but I love the fact that you're doing this, because there are a lot more of a quote unquote, rednecks, that are liberal than than people might think. Right. Right. And I think that, that's what's great about them is that they're like, no, we're here. And we have a lot of say, I think that maybe that will also you know, those kinds of things like us getting on this five cast and talking about this stuff is necessary and is gonna make changes. I hope so. I hope so. Because you know my youngest is twenty. And we raise them with a completely different set of, of ideas about the world. They, they don't see people of different skin colors different. They were not raised in a Christian environment. We, we gave them all the books and said, look, you read up on all this stuff and you make the decision on your own. And, and I feel like that's the way it should be. And another is going to be people that disagree. They're not on an you supposed to indoctrinate them in the true belief and all that not go on and on about that. But I'm gonna shut up right there. And I would do it. Oh, yeah. Oh, we'll definitely have it. We will definitely have it. I actually have another website called secular south dot com, where it's, it's kinda like a pulls in feeds from various secular in eighth east of websites and also have a service on it, that I run secular south radio where pull in secular Nathan podcast and just play them twenty four seven. Seth Andrews thinking atheist him it Meta's the friendly, Theus dogma debate all of those guys and I just did it. And part of the reason why I did it is a liked to listen to streaming audio when I'm cutting the grass, when I'm riding along more. And I wanted a place where I could just tune into a radio style string that had nothing but secular Nathan podcast, and I was like, I can't find one I created one so there you go. So, you know, wrapped up in, when I'm when I'm mowing the lawn. Itself Georgia, but. Okay. That's a liberal redneck, right there. There you go. There you go. Susan. It has been a pleasure. Thank you so much for green to sit down and have a chat with me. We'll definitely do it again. And like I said that invitation anytime you want to co host. The door is open. Just let me know. And I hope you have a fantastic day. Thank you. You too. This is awesome and create it take care. I want to again thank Susan for taking time out of her schedule to chat in reminisce after token with her. I feel so sheltered so many of our classmates, just couldn't wait to quote, get out of this town. But yet they came back. I never left except well kinda relocated about forty miles away, but Susan did in a big fucking way. Check out the show notes for her blog the Facebook post we discussed and the moth podcast episode that we also talked about, as I said during the interview with Susan if we'll just start communicating with each other we can probably solve a lot of our problems. So I hope you've enjoyed this episode. I know I did a love talking with Susan and lack pointed out to her interview. The door is always open for her to come back and sit in and co host this show with me. I love to, to hear her perspectives on things. So I'm looking forward to that in the future. But in the meantime, I'm gonna take my leave of you. All a hope you're having a great day up. You have a fantastic weekend. Hug your loved ones. And if you're down in the Florida area or even in South Georgia as Armagh is we just don't know what's happening as of the time of this recording. My thoughts, would you be prepared?

Thank you for joining me for another episode of done town. Oh my God. Let me tell you. I am. So stoked for today show, I had the opportunity and the honor to reconnect with one of my high school friends. Now I won't say that, that she and I hung out together all the time during high school. And man, there's a lot then in hindsight, as, as you'll discover in the interview that I was so oblivious to. In, you know, in that's probably just the way it is in life. You've got your mind concentrated on certain things in high school. You know. Guys on girls girls on guys hail, even back then it could have been guys about guys and girls about girls. But who hail, no, you didn't talk about any of that, right? So my friend, Susan can't she's afar. Native that was transplanted to FitzGerald Georgia at the young age of six. And as she points out in a Facebook post on August thirteenth two thousand seventeen FitzGerald is a small town in South Georgia that was settled by union soldiers after the end of the civil war to create a retirement colony for veterans in the warmer climate. Fitzgerald is historically marked by union named streets on the east side of town and confederate ones on the west. It's a town as Susan points out that boasts history. Harmony heritage. It's also a town one that I'll admit I was oblivious to Enchaine fully so that even in two thousand seventeen still holds separate proms one for white students. And one for black students. I reconnected with Susan after almost thirty years because as a writer in a world traveler, she has some interesting stories to tell stories that demonstrate just how insular an isolated our upbringing in this small southern town was and how unfortunately not much seems to have changed even thirty years later so without further delay. I give you my interview with my friend, a very like minded individual. A former high school buddy. Susan kent. With me today is. Susan, I don't I don't really know how to describe you. We win. We went to school together. You know, honestly, I did not realize that you were originally from Florida. Was born in Jacksonville and lived there until I was six, and then moved in to fill up my parents got divorced, because my mom had been born in raised in FitzGerald, a really. So she's originally from FitzGerald. Yeah. Yes. She's old school. Worked at the Coca Cola bottling plant when she was in high school leg. Okay. So that makes sense as to why you wound up in FitzGerald. That was the one thing I could never figure out because I looked at it went when the hail with anybody wind up in FitzGerald. I mean really?

Welcome back to another episode of the dawn talk radio podcast. Thank you for joining me. This is the last podcast of the week. So let's just jump right into it. I wanna tell you a little story, something that happened yesterday in it in a Kanda demonstrates how humanity humans in general how we affect the ecosystem around us, and it's, it's not it's not really anything that we, can we can necessarily do much about if we want to continue to live on this planet, the way we have been for hundreds of thousands. If not more years. But I was in the house. My wife was in the kitchen. And I had walked through the kitchen and I had walked into our bedroom. And all of a sudden I heard this strange. It was a noise, and I don't want to say it was a, a guttural noises. But it was definitely a noise that I had not heard before in it. It elicited a fear in me. A something was wrong with one of the air conditioner units. Now we live in a two story house. So we have two units outside. We have a package unit which is what you typically have on the first floor which has got your blower, and your compressor, and everything in it. And then we have a split unit for upstairs, where the, the actual air handler is up in the attic. And then the compressor is down outside along with the package unit. And it's actually not that old believe it gap put in, in two thousand eleven two thousand twelve when the other one just died and that was not a fun few days. But the, the package unit the one that supplies air to the downstairs. I honestly don't know how old it is. I think it said that the house was built in nineteen ninety. So I'm thinking that the package unit is probably that old. So I get really concerned. When I hear noises that I'm not accustomed to so a walkout into the kitchen and I'll look at my wife and she's over at the sink looking through the kitchen window into the backyard, which is where the air handlers are. Or, or the well, you know what I'm talking about the compressor in and all of that, and I might did you hear that? And she's like, yeah. And I think it may be a stick or something. And I'm like, okay, a stick or something that fellow one of the units out there. She's I, I don't know. It just it really it just sounded like a stick something. Big it hit one of the units. My. Okay, so head on out through the sun room walk out on the deck. And the way the units are positioned, is there, right next to the deck, which was honestly, not a very smart move, because my AC guys talked about how difficult it is actually work on the package unit because the side that he actually needs to work on is on the side. That is closest to the deck in. There's about a foot of clearance at best between the package unit and the deck. So I'm looking over I'm looking at the package unit which we've only in the last year or to replace the fan motor on it and then look over to the other smaller unit for upstairs. And I really can't see anything. So I decide to go ahead and walk on down and take a look. And the closer, I got to the unit for upstairs. I started noticing it was something odd on the back right corner of the unit. You know how these things they're basically squares. And it just looked really odd. I wasn't entirely sure what it was that I was looking at. And so, I. I cautiously walked up to it a little bit more say cautiously, because I'm not sure what the hell is going on at this point because last week, we had a black snake going through the yard and I do not like snakes. I don't like reptiles. I don't like reptiles and don't like insects. Okay, spiders, roaches, e I can't stand any of that. So I'm cautiously approaching this unit, and I'm this thing just it looks weird almost looks like something. One of the cats had maybe thrown up. And I'm standing there and I'm just staring at it. And then it finally hits me what I'm looking at. And out of the corner of my I I see something wiggling, and I looked down. And I'm like, what is that? And so again, cautiously approach it now. Get closer now let down and it's a tale. It's a tale that is wiggling is the tail. That is no longer attached to a body. Is a tale that is no longer attached to the body of a huge lizard. This lizard was probably about six six inches long. Definitely. Body body size bigger than my thumb and apparently what had happened. Is he was up on the unit? And I'm presuming he had gotten down to where the fan area was. Or maybe he was just in there. Hanging out and tried to come out whenever the fan kicked in. But what I was seeing on the back right corner of the unit was the remains of his body and his partially decapitated head. His tail had gotten cut off in that is what I saw on the ground wiggling in thrashing around. The rest of his body was sitting up there on the unit with his head just barely hanging on through some skin or flesh, or muscle, or whatever that was the noise that we heard it made such a racket when he got entangled apparently into the fan.

Well, Hello, everyone and welcome to another episode of the dawn talk radio podcast. My name is of an aunt kissing. And I wanna talk a little bit about today. The challenges of IT work. Challenges of IT work information, technology or technology in general, weather. That's you're managing a phone system. You're installing workstations configuring laptops. Configuring setting up maintaining wifi systems. Whatever it is. But the challenges of IT work when no one in the corporation in the company and small business. Whatever the size it happens to be challenges of IT work when no one seems to be on the same page. Now, it's no secret. I've talked about this before, but my core business, what I actually do for a living is. I am an information technology consultant an IT consultant. I cater to small to medium size businesses where I do desktop support I do networking implementation and support. Wifi systems telephone systems broadband support of a wide variety of a plethora if you will have services because I do have almost thirty five years of experience and Iran. A broadband cable company for roughly thirteen years. And so I've, I've been exposed to a lot of things when it comes to the business world in technology. So, of course, along with that comes. Ads changes moves modifications of workstations. Telephones and in so far as when you even get into the telephone systems, how calls routed to various departments within a larger company, generally a small company, someone that's only got maybe ten employees or less, you, you typically don't have to worry about call routing situations. S because most of the, the employment of the company is, is probably well us. An example of heating and cooling companies. They have anywhere from about five to ten could be, you know, ten or more, depending on how big they are, but typically inside the office, they have more no more than four or five extensions. And so all the calls, come in and ring those extensions or they ring to main extensions, which are then handled by the, the front line personnel that take the phone calls, and then dispatched the calls wherever they need to go in a larger environment. And this one is particularly the one that I'm speaking about you have different divisions. You may have a sales division or department within the organization, you may have a service department within the organization you have a financial section slash accounting sex. So you're either going to have a receptionist and potentially a backup receptionist. It is going to field all these calls, or you're going to have an Ivy are or auto attendant, where when someone calls in their given a list of options, and they press one through seven or eight to get to the, the various departments, and then those calls, get routed down and they go into either. Call groups ring groups, hung groups, whatever you wanna call them. And then it goes on from there. Well, I was recently challenged. With an implementation. At an existing customer. And of course, to, I'm not gonna tell you the customer has a course. I'm just I'm not I'm not gonna cut my penis off here. All right.

Welcome to the show. Name is Donovan kissing and welcome once again to the Don Tokyo podcast. All right. So over the weekend. My wife was going through doing some cleaning, and our bedroom and oil, let's just say I stayed out of there. But one of the times I walked in there. She told me she said she come over here. And of course, I had to step over this monumental Powell of papers that probably some of them were at least fifteen possibly twenty years old. But she had two things that she wanted me to look at and one of the things I wanted to share with you today. And if you've if you've ever been in the tech field or you remember these commercials online or not even online, but on television, rather see, I'm, you know, I'm I'm online all the time. But these commercials were very very popular back in the late nineties early two thousands. And I'm sure you're going to remember them. Let me let me try to paint the picture for you before. I tell you exactly what it is. There is a computer, and there is a young African American child probably somewhere in the neighborhood of maybe eight to ten years of age, and he is. Basically extolling the virtues of how he can get online. And how great it is. And how this is such a sweet deal. Now, if you can imagine what this wh-what just thinking your mind's eye. What it could be that? I'm talking about the kid looks sorta like Webster you remember while Webster like back in the day. The the the the tiny African American kid that start on the show Webster. But this kid's a little bigger than that. But he does seem to favor him somewhat. Now think about it. What could I be talking about? We'll give you three seconds one thousand one one thousand to one thousand three and I am, of course, talking about people PC. People PC where you can get your desktop and the web for as little as twenty four ninety five a month. People PC was this this service where? If you didn't because think about it. I mean. I started working for the city of tift and running or hours at running the department at the time, I was the network manager over all of the internet assets in nineteen ninety nine just a couple of months before we actually lit up our first customer and Dala was still the the big driver when it came to being able to get online. And so if I remember correctly, that's exactly what this service was what they were trying to do was. Okay. So you've got a way for people to get online to get onto the internet. But what if they don't actually have a computer well in the late nineties? I mean computers was still fairly expensive. I'm not saying that they're just you know, pocket change today. But they were a lot more expensive in the late nineties and early two thousands compared to what you can get today. For three four five hundred dollars and a monitor, you know, you you can get a nice setup something that won't necessarily new play the latest games or what have you? But if all you want to do is to get online and insert the internet and do E mail and social media and all of that. Yeah. Six hundred dollars easy, especially for a laptop five hundred six hundred dollars for laptops. But the idea behind this was they would essentially lease you until you had it paid all a personal computer and provide you with an internet account. Now, this is a page that my wife, actually tore out of. I think it's I it was it was either popular science proper mechanics is copyright two thousand. So the way that had read is why go to the mall with one phone call. You can have everything you need to get online delivered right to your door. Not only that your people PC computer is fully loaded and easy to set up. So you'll be ready to go in mere minutes. What's more for as little as twenty four ninety five a month? You get a brand new IBM computer and three years of all this unlimited internet access twenty four seven support in home service in great online deals, so call or click anytime day or night and make one less shopping trip this season, happy holidays. So. Yeah. This this was in a targeting the holiday season. And you got a pinch Eum three says desktops from twenty four ninety five a month. Then it says Pentium three from thirty nine ninety five a month and notebooks from forty nine ninety five a month. So they hook you in with that twenty four dollars ninety five cents a month. But then if you actually want something that's probably worth a damn, then you're either gonna have to pay forty or fifty bucks. Now. Let me see if I can really read the fine print here. Is you know, I don't even know if. Okay. So it's people p c dot com. I'm going to do a quick let me see if people PC dot com, even exists still up typed it in. Oh, that's right. It became EarthLink or it was purchased by EarthLink. So there you have that. On internet plans. Yeah. I don't believe you can get PC's fromam anymore. Let's just put it that way. So how did

That hasn't really been a problem in the past. I don't know. I'm just speculating here. I'm spitballing. You can't have something for nothing. You gotta have something that makes coat taste like coke and coke is sweet. Back to the article efforts to make water or milk default beverages. Served on children's menus were among the policy recommendations or in the new policy statement from the American Academy of pediatrics American Heart Association. The santee Maliki a research, scientists in the Harvard ta Chan school of public health department of nutrition said, quote, most of my work has focused on the dull tes, and we have shown that in addition to weight gain regular consumption of sugary beverages is associated with high risk of type two diabetes, heart disease, stroke, hypertension, some cancers amd premature death. She also praised the new policy statement. I think it's something that really needs to be considered. Again. I recognize the fact that taxing sugary drinks. May become a hardship on lower income families that are working. With a smaller budget. Understand that. It's a lot. More fulfilling, I guess is a way of saying it. When you can you have one hundred dollars to spend on groceries, and you can go in may be get some core stuff like a pack of deli ham eat or not even daily ham, but just ham slices some bread. Some mayo. Fourteen bags of chips in case of of Dr peppers, and you're set that'd be a great meal for me. But it's not healthy. Healthy. But it's a Ford -able so putting attacks on any type of sugary drink. Yes. I understand that's going to be an issue. And I know I keep beating that in in the floor. In the reason, why do is because I support. The tax excise tax on sugary drinks support at one hundred percent. But we've got to figure out at the same time. This isn't a one and done scenario. We need to make the sugary drinks less attractive to the parents and their pocketbooks. In make it easier to get healthier drinks and food overall. We can't do the first one without at least attempting to do the second one. Something's gotta give. Scott to give. I'd love to know your thoughts on this. If you're in a family, a big family or even a small family. You buy a lot of sugary drinks. Is it part of your budgeting process because you have a budget that you have to work with own weekly or monthly basis. Is it a core part of of your kids diet?

Follow the show on Twitter at the Don Tokyo and Don talk show on Facebook. I'm your humble host Donovan Ed kissing and you can find me on Twitter at Don at kissing. I can't say for sure, but I'd like to think my parents were happy when I found out I would be arriving on this planet somewhere in the first few months of nineteen seventy I don't recall any conversations detailing their lives leading up to the event other than it taken roughly about five years before it actually happened after they were married now. I know my mother has stated on more than one occasion. She would have loved for me to have a sister or a brother, but that really wasn't in the cards for her even before she was diagnosed with scleroderma, the doctor told her it would be advisable to attempt for another child that it would be dangerous to our help. So I was it. In contrast to me being an only child, my wife, and I have three kids. She wasn't an only child having a younger sister. So I believe it's safe to say her goal was probably having more than one. So we wound up with three, and I wouldn't change it for anything as many families. Do our early days were rough financially and emotionally as saying I've heard so many times goes and probably somewhat paraphrasing here if you wait until you can afford to have a kid, you'll never have kid is something that happens, and you figure it out and we did with one two and then eventually three my income slowly rose during this time and the relationship between me and my wife grew stronger, not without issues. But I mean, hey, that's marriage. Right. At some point reality became comfortable. Struggles were either more tolerable, or there were just simply fewer of them or we had armored up to the point where we were battle-tested in hardened. Our focus was on this small little silo. We agreed it for our family and small group of friends. Everything else was just out there. It didn't touch us and we weren't concerned. I mean, sure we paid attention to what was happening in the world, a political saber rattles in our own country and the rest of the world ideological scuffles that were oftentimes just entertaining to watch. But none of that really had a way of affecting us. So it was more or less a show n life was comfortable. There was drama life changes job. I was in a war-like an old favourite coat and someone was about to wash it for the very first time in a very long time. It probably needed a good bath. But I wanted to be the one to do it not somebody else, but they had the water. They had the detergent and all I had was this dingy coat that was my favorite. And if I wanted to keep that coat it had to be watched. And it I it was nice. Having it washed now that much was different about my. Freshly washed coat is still did the job until it didn't. I heard a phrase the other day, which got me to thinking about all of this. Which is why I'm sharing it with you. The phrase was uncomfortable. Reality can't say I've heard it before. But it stayed with me in thinking further on it. I feel that my first true experience with uncomfortable. Reality was not long after the Cote washing. And and if you haven't figured it out yet, though, I'm sure that you have your smart. The Cote washing is a metaphor for significant life changing event. You see I was faced with a reality. I had not faced in a long long time and beat it to be perfectly honest. I'm not sure I'd ever faced anything like this before. God damn. It was uncomfortable. And it was scary. And that sticks with me even today if nothing more than as a lesson to never never get too comfortable the feeling eased up a bit. But it came back in full force. Just a few short years again. So like, I said never get too comfortable. I went out hall free for a year from December twenty first twenty seventeen December twenty dollars twenty eighteen as a test for myself, and in hopes of helping to clear my head and let me see the world in a better light different context. And for some things it worked others, not so much. But nothing is perfect. I guess. I'm now heading into my fiftieth year as I turned forty nine back in January of this year. And I think it's fair to say of never felt the level of uncomfortable reality that I feel now the harshness of time is making his presence known in my body things don't quite work as well. As they used to hopes and dreams are stifled by the monotony of everyday life civility has been replaced with snarky nece or downright hostility. Especially where many of us tend to express our feelings nowadays online, intellectual discourse is at best a fraud as we can't seem to have it any longer. Everyone wants to control everyone else as they are. Right. And we are wrong in vice versa. The right hates the left. The left hates the right with the left getting Lefter and the ri- getting writer and all the while. I'm having trouble trying to find the point of it. All this piece isn't meant to be some ideological. Or philosophical exercise more to the point. It's mostly a stream of consciousness or the ramblings of a madman, whichever one suits your fancy. It's my way of attempting to explain the feeling of uncomfortable reality, something, I'm not sure I've done adequate job of doing it probably raises more questions and provides answers. But I am curious about something from you. Do you feel it to the uneasiness in the world a reality that has either allowed itself to be manipulated or pushed to the side in favor of something else or one in which we've all made the wrong choices. Here's what I don't know how to fix it. How can we get back to a comfortable reality? Do you know share if you do? That's

Why is it that with with all of the machine learning capabilities that we have today goes I am not going to call it artificial intelligence because we don't have artificial intelligence. We have machine learning. They learn and they repeat tasks it's not artificial intelligence is definitely lot a nod. Artificial generalized intelligence or generalized. Artificial intelligence, basically consciousness is not that is machine learning. But you would think that about would actually be able to circumvent this. Well, this this posting actually opened my eyes because I wasn't sure. Either one of the things was. Google actually invented in entire virtual machine. Just to run the check box. They let me say that again, they invented in entire virtual machine, essentially, a simulated computer inside of a computer if you know, what virtual machines are just to run that check box. And that virtual machine uses Google's own language, which they then in crip, not once but twice. And it's not simple encryption. 'cause you know when you normally when you password protect something you you have to use a key to code it. So Google's invented language is decoded with a key. That is changed by the process of reading the language, and then the language also changes as it is read now that just boggles my mind. So then they combined or the hash the key with the web address that you're visiting. So that you can't use a capture because that's what these are called from one website bypass, another always wondered about that. And then it combines that with what they're calling fingerprints from your browser where they they catch microscopic variations in your computer that a bite would struggle to replicate such as C S rules. Of course, all of this is done just to make it hard for you to understand what it is that Google is actually trying to do and there, but there are tools that have been written to try to analyze this. Now, we always here. Over and over almost on a weekly basis. I mean almost on a daily basis about how much data is being captured from us by the big corporations like Google and Facebook and an apple in Twitter Instagram, which you know, Instagram is owned by Facebook, and all of these these companies, even Amazon. Well, these check boxes record and analyze a ton of data. They get your computers timezone time. They get your appear.

He attempts to turn the stereo typical firebrand style of atheism on its head by offering an engaging in rational and thought provoking conversations when asked about the title of his podcasts if is quick to point out that he is not the thinking atheist, but we all should be thinking in questioning everything. Well, I come out of a faith culture. And so the thinking is came about really from two fronts. One was that I wanted to encourage a community where we didn't take it on faith faith is a lousy way for discovering. What's true? The second reason is that I needed kind of an icon to front the community because I was still emerging from my religious job. I mean, the employer I worked for was they served a lot of churches. And so I was worried about losing my job or losing clients for them or I was still navigating through some of this journey with my family. And and so having the thinking says an eye.

"Welcome to Don talk. I'm Don of Adkison as I'm in the process of doing conned of soft reboot of the show. I thought I'd put out an episode. That's mainly about some news topics little items. I thought were interesting and worth sharing with you further down the road. I hope to have some great conversations with some fantastic guests. I'm in the process of lining them up. So hopefully, I'll be bringing those episodes to you very soon. Let's get on with today's episode. I don't know about you. But I love cheese. I'm kinda set my ways when it comes to the types of cheeses that I like, I'm a cheddar cheese guy. I'm a Swiss cheese guy, occasionally, a love me, some mozzarella an that was terrible. Growing up though. There was nothing better to me. Then craft. Singles. And I get it. I know that it was processed cheese and of the process cheeses craft is probably one of the better ones. I mean, you can get you shop at WalMart. If you shop at Publix, you can get the quote store brand of cheese singles. And they're decent. They're not quite as good. They don't necessarily stack up to the craft singles, and of course, over the last several years, and I think sergeant oh started this where you if you'll recall, and I think you still can do it this way the Kraft singles, come in this pack, it looks like up it's a block. But then when you had companies like sergeant start coming out with what they call real cheese, and I'm not knocking at a I'm I'm ninety nine point nine percent. Sure that it is real cheese. They started coming out in the smaller packs where they weren't square..

"It was beyond the understanding of our ancestors of the time therefore power or a being beyond them must have been in control. No need to think upon it farther. It made sense somehow and gave them comfort. The action had a calls when they falsely thought they could predict or at the very least influence, and it was done. The wheels were set in motion in the thinkers have been trying to stop it ever since. Foresee twenty nineteen being no different than twenty eighteen which was no different than twenty seventeen and on and on. If we're no long shake, then we're fighting over scraps from his table. And if you don't immediately get the reference, you she watch Braveheart one of the best movies ever made in my opinion. Deep down. I believe we're all trying to figure out the purpose of life. Even those that believe they have a lock on it coming to grips with the fact that all we are as flesh and blood and electrical impulses isn't easy. We're getting nowhere with our petty. Squabbles. On who belongs wear who's entitled to white. I think we all want. Well, most of us simply want to be happy to feel like we have a purpose beyond simply going through the motions day after day. We want safety for ourselves and our loved ones we want to do our very best to ensure children have a future to feel safe in. In we wanted venture to explore not only the world around us, but deep. Inside ourselves as well to discover or rediscover our better angels to finally or once again, give them a voice. For too long. We've embraced selfishness. Always in it to win it to always be right? I've seen this in myself. Oftentimes ignoring the deeper meaning in the conversation because my focus was on proving that I was right. Is taking the long way round to borrow a phrase for me to discover or at least acknowledge the goal isn't about right nece. But it's about honesty and compromise. I firmly believe that can only happen when we are willing to sit and listen to each other. It won't be easy old habits are very hard to break. But isn't the old adage that anything worth doing anything worth? Having is never easy. I said earlier that I foresee twenty nineteen being no different than the years that preceded it. I believe that's true unless we take action, and we reach across the aisles and embrace one another as what we truly are. Flesh, bone blood and electrical impulses on a spinning sphere in the coldness of space just trying to figure it all out. And we can only do that together. That's why I wanna take this podcast in a different direction and twenty nineteen and hopefully beyond I've spent too much time bitching and complaining about how things are and not enough time having conversations about why they are. Or are we doing the best we can? And if not how do we work together to change it? I realize I'm a small voice in the see of screaming and wailing voices. But we gotta start somewhere. I wanna reach out to others not in my coaching Bor. So I may better understand them in. They me in an effort to find common ground. And once we find that common ground, we build upon it until it is so large it can no longer be ignored. So as a people we can finally achieve the ultimate goal to be happy healthy, and hopefully a little wiser. Maybe then either during the journey or ant the in I will rediscover the wonder and the all as for the podcast. I can't give you any specifics. But just know that I'm trying to go in a direction that will make listening and hopefully supporting Don well worth your time. At the very least, maybe we'll be exposed to new ideas together. More to come and thanks for listening. Stay up to date with what's happening with Don talk at Don, talk radio dot com or Donovan Adkison dot com..
