Sen. Mike Lee Agrees That We Should Hold Everything Until We Protect Our Border
"Look at the southern border. They stopped building the wall. We have people coming to this country. God knows maybe by the end of the year over two million People who are sick. Many who have this virus may have the variant. May have other illnesses. We have sexual predators coming across. It's not that all people are this way. It's that too many are then we read a piece today about Miners. In our custody being sexually assaulted. Why doesn't the Republican Party get together and saying You know what, Mr President, We're not passing the damn thing until you fix that damn border. Why don't we ever conduct ourselves this way? That is precisely what we should do. It's always hard for me. I can't speak for anyone but myself right in figuring out what motivates people I know that just some, they simply find the siren call. Of bipartisanship and the way it sounds. When it flows off the tip of their tongues to be irresistible. Compounding that siren call is the fact that they get praise from the media. Fourth, they get a short term. Boost from it, and they speak as if as if bipartisanship with this rare commodity Mark. It's interesting. We pass spending bills every year to keep the spending going. In fact, you don't get to be $30 Trillion in depth without a whole lot of bipartisanship going on. Yeah. You do not see that that all requires bipartisanship. Bipartisanship isn't that rare? When it comes to spending other people's money, you know what is rare. Politicians who are willing to say no, even though they will be criticized and vilified and hated in and by and through the mainstream media for it, That's what's rare. That's what we need more of
Sen. Mike Lee Believes We Should Reject This Infrastructure Bill
"I am very concerned Senator about this so called bipartisan infrastructure bill. Whenever I hear that word bipartisan, I get very, very nervous. That just means people agreed to do a lot of things. Maybe they shouldn't do. And as I hear more and more about what's in this bill, it's a monstrosity. It's It's an enormously long bill negotiated by a handful of people in a room with a handful of people from Biden's office. I reject this and let me just give you two reasons Why number one. We know that Democrats are coming right behind with what they claim is 3.5 trying, But a lot of experts say it's actually 5.5. We've already spent trillions and trying to that We have hundreds of billions of dollars sitting around that haven't gone to this side or the other. And I suppose the second reason is, um What is this all for? I mean, we already have inflation That's starting to pile up, starting to to show its ugly head. It's almost impossible to get that under control once it gets going We act like nothing's taking place. I'd love to know your opinion and by the way, great speech on the Senate floor. Thank you, Mark. Thanks for having me on your show. Yeah, I'm deeply concerned about this. Look, I, uh what? We've been told about this bill for months. We've been hearing for months. They're negotiating it. They've spent four months writing it. And we didn't see Bill Text until last night late last night, like nine or 10 o'clock at night. The first time we saw in 2702 pages long, unbelievable. That happens. I get it. But look, it's taken them four months to get to this point. And all of a sudden they come in. They will walk in with 2700 pages, plot that down on the desk and expect us to digest that vote on it and pass it within three days. That is wrong even before we get to the details in the bill, and there are a lot of problems in it. That is wrong in and of itself, and we should reject it.

Frito-Lay Strike Could End as Workers Vote on a New Labor Agreement
"Workers who have been striking in Topeka, Kansas, for more than two weeks are voting today on a new labor agreement. Frank Morris of member station K. C U R reports the proposed contract eases some working conditions at the plant and would raise salaries, but those concessions may not be enough to compete in a tight labor market. Union strong Oh, one thing you learn, talking to the strikers outside the sprawling Frito Lay plant Topeka, the people who make Cheetos, Fritos and chips they can work similar long hours. I am a very hardworking woman. I work like him. Helen Teeter done up in a bright red shirt. Big white hat says she has very little time for family. I have no time to go work for them because I've been working seven days a week. Like 84 hours a week. 84 hours a week, Peter says the money's good up to double the normal $20 an hour wage with overtime. In a statement, Frieda Lee says only about 2% of its Topeka workers average more than 60 hours a week. But the company routinely forces workers to pick up extra hours and to skip scheduled days off even those with seniority like Marlon Smith. I've been here 22 years and I still get force for seven days a week. Maybe, like two or 3, 12 2 or 3 12 hour shifts. The contract Smith and others are voting on today would guarantee one day off a week. It would also end what workers call suicide shifts. 2 12 hour shifts with only eight hours in between. There's a proposed 4% raise over the next two years. But there may not be enough workers have more leverage now, and the signs of that are impossible to miss. They just put this up last week. We were out here We watched him put it up. Brad Wiese is pointing out a new billboard just across from the free delay plant Right where the picketers stand it, says the JM Smuckers company now hiring multiple position shift and pay rates, comprehensive benefit packages, So that's pretty much telling us.

"The b word was an event held by arc. That was meant to demystify bitcoin and specifically to demystify it for institutions. That had perhaps gotten off track with bitcoin in their relationship with bitcoin. During the absolute craziness of the first part of this year to that end yesterday saw sessions on energy and mining. Courtesy of nick carter sessions on the macro context with lynn alden discussions of human rights and bitcoin with alex glad scene but there was absolutely no doubt that the most anticipated part of the show was the discussion between jack. Dorsey kathy would andy mosque with steve lee from square crypto. Moderating as i said yesterday on the show the whole thing had come up theoretically spontaneously on twitter with ilan making a joke. On one of jack's threads at least that's what we were made to think. It seems far more likely to me that the whole thing was engineered by would herself. Who was up until very recently the connective link between ilan in the bitcoin. Space whatever the providence of the discussion however. There is no doubt that the market had serious anticipation around what was going to be said. Bitcoin had rallied from under thirty thousand dollars on tuesday to around thirty two thousand dollars as the discussion began. I think the best way to highlight the event is to go person by person and give a little sense of the highlights of what they discussed from there. I can provide a bit more of the shared.

Bernard Lee Chats With Poker Pro Johnnie Vibes Moreno
"You have been playing cash for many years well over a decade and kind of mistakes cash. We're not talking high nose bleed kind of what is it. Been like for that because we will talk about your youtube presence. You're logging in how that really is taken off. But well prior to that you were poker player. It's not that you are of vlogger that plays poker. It's really the other way around. Is that you played poker for so many years and kind of logging has kind of come into this space how was it and what were your trials and tribulations playing cash poker for a living because everyone loves seeing the big scores but people don't understand the grind sometimes of six sessions in a row where you don't win everyone's happy when we have a twenty five hundred five thousand dollar pot and can show it on on air but how many times do you struggle struggle struggle and flush dr doesn't get there or you flopped upset and they get run a runner and now you're going home with you know only job in the world where you can work x. number of hours and go home poor right. I mean it's very rare that that happens talk about your trials and tribulations in how it got to the point where you really felt like you could steadily make a living at this. Because it's really hard. I remember the first day that i left my job as a software developer with 401k health benefits and all these things i remember thinking like if i if i don't make good money playing poker i can always go back and get offered job again and you know the i i i was doing. I was doing well right out of the gate. But you gotta keep in mind that it wasn't that difficult to make money playing cash game poker if you had a solid strategy fifteen years ago because the money was everybody you could find a two five game anywhere that was great and you know there was probably one hundred to five games on any given night in las vegas during this time so i i was doing well but naturally as you progress in any career you want to make more money than the previous year and you want to get better and you want to further your career and you know. That's that's easy to do. Fifteen years ago and poker. You know you could start applying one three. You can make thirty five thousand dollars that first year. Feel like it was amazing but the next year. You know your your goals maybe fifty thousand in the next year your goals. Maybe seventy five thousand. But then you reach a point where you're making around one hundred hundred twenty five thousand dollars a year and you realize that in order to make more than that you need to get substantially better. You need to find better games and the games needs to be big and what's interesting about. That is poker. Games were shrinking. They were getting smaller over the course of the last five to ten years and they were getting tougher. So no i even if even if you got better in your own poker game it didn't ensure that you were gonna make more money than the next year right. I remember i kind of plateaued about six years ago. Where i was in the one hundred to one hundred twenty five thousand dollar a year range and i didn't really see gray prospects for making more than that and and just as a natural Ambitious human being. That started sparking me. Like what else can i do to ignite passion in the game. And what else can. I do to keep things interesting for me. And that's kind of how you know. Creating the poker channel came about My my five ten game had died. That i was playing in san diego on a consistent basis. That game was no more. So i was in a precarious spot. Where how am. I going to continue to make this good money with smaller games and i thought it would be a perfect time to start a new project and i remember those first couple of episodes that i started. I didn't think anybody's gonna watch him. I was just. I was just trying to get better at public speaking. And you know perhaps china Develop some other avenues of interest at a time. When i was unsure where the cash games could take me As far as the ceiling was and it it took off after the seventh episode. When i lost sixty five hundred dollars in a in five ten in in one session. I picked up the camera and put it in my face and i was like this sucks because like this game doesn't run twenty four hours anymore. I got like eight hours a day. That i can play this game. It might take me a while to win back. Sixty five hundred kind of share that on my youtube channel and algorithm picked it up. And they're like wow. This is a real poker player. That's making youtube videos. So i think that the looting to what you talked about before. I wasn't scared to talk talk about my thought process. I wasn't scared to say how i played hands. I was competent and my poker game. I think one thing that a lot of people have have happened as their newer poker players that are making you content so they're kind of more Afraid to just say what happened right and like you know because people are gonna show up in the comments and be like oh you played that like an idiot or what. Are you doing three batting without hand but for me. My confidence in my overall poker game. That part didn't bother me like if you were gonna talk crap about my game in the comments. I was fine with that. You know and i think that. That's what destroys a lot of people in the early stages shirt will have that confidence in know the when you sign yourself up for youtube comments the youtube comments they're gonna come come

"That has never told me what to say. I write all my own words and that type of thing does not exist in our corporate media landscape. It is not a thing and there are career. Correct graveyards filled with people or their careers filled with People who who spoke out even once they achieved great fame. People like phil donahue jesse ventura. You know they get up to a point and they are hugely well-known hugely famous yours successful and they started speaking out against war and msnbc wherever you know what you're not you're not right for us. So that's that's my rant on that someone in the chair reminded me that you are a direct descendant of robert e lee and i'm curious about how that history has played a role in your life. I'm sure it's something that at some point you. You took some time in trace this stuff back. Wanted to understand more. And i'm curious as to what did you find yours in history. Yeah my father's side i am. It's kind of All the american colonists it is you know we have nellie washington's hand town nellie was washington's niece we have her hand talent they actually signed it back then because these were fine. Nice hand house that were expensive for the time. So it's got her signature on it and it's framed in our house and Yeah descended from john. Marshall supreme court justice robert e lee and then also probably the most important one is descended directly from walter camp who basically. He's called the godfather of american football. He invented american football. So that's the really important one the others you not forget them but so yeah it. It is kind of crazy and In in some regards. I i grew up in combination washington.

I knew about the civil war. I knew i was named after robert e labor and i thought well named after a loser so we must have one but yeah it's you know it's kinda crazy in that regard but i'd like to think not maybe not with robert lee you know but fighting for owning slaves but With the others. I'd like to think that the navy there was some voice in their head. That knows that the most patriotic thing you can do is speak out for the truth. Is paul. America had to account for our current sins and our passions and try and make people informed and and i hope there would be a piece of them that would see that as The best thing you can do in a country like it is today even though they could never imagine What insanity we'd involved in So you know and maybe some people can say my lineages contradictory. But i you know. I've never really viewed it that way..

But i i've always felt like i recognize when i'm an asshole or if i don't my wife will tell me but i do recommend recognize that i i am that person and i try to not be a hypocrite as much as possible. I i know. I fail at it. I try not to be so. I i think that is the one thing as comics. We and not going up on stage constantly. I still say comic about myself. Because it's how. I approach every other project anyway. And it's how my brain works. I think that the people that are the most honest about who they are are a lot of comics. And you just gotta look that way. It's ego though. I mean let's just be honest about the nuts and bolts my brain's broken and i need you know stupid approval and laughter from people and the reason i do other projects is because of that but i do think that there is some ambition to it as well And a person that doesn't have ambition. Is it disappointing. I'll say to me you know when my kids lack ambition my kids says i want to be the i. I'm too hard on my son. He says i'm to be. I wanna be the best skateboard player or Table this i'm sorry. Key wants to be the best guitar player and skateboarder. There is to say guitar player skateboarder. And i'm like a so. Why are you watching this episode of yu-gi-oh that we've seen six times. what are you doing. it's sunny outside. You know when it's seventy five degrees. Why aren't you skateboard. Aren't you in their learning guitar. Amount of guitar teaching knowledge that there is out. There has never been as much as it is at this moment. Eric clapton figured out how to play based on listening to the radio and plucking guitar and figuring out how to do what those guys did. Yeah just qatar. He he says he never had if he wasn't at school. His guitar was always in his hand. That's how eric clapton became such as guitar player. That people would spray paint clapton. Has god on walls. And i'm like you are watching this yu-gi-oh episode you've seen five times if you won't be great at being you know playing guitar. Go play guitar. And then i feel like i'm forcing to do something that he says he wants to do. And yeah that's a whole. Yeah so there is some ambition that has has to go into it So i guess. I'm over ambitious and Egotistical i think that and i think if more people were honest that would be some of what they said. I like it. I think that's a good ending point at solid. I appreciate that all right..

Their parents were were talking and telling us that the kids that wanted the name change couldn't. Say it because they were being bullied by. The other people and what was really interesting about this is that there were adults bullying people to which was really weird and so I. Remember being at at Binge on been street eating lunch and black family came up in the mom said, Hey, are you Aren't you trustee Jones and I'm like, yeah and she's like I just want you to know I need for you to keep fighting. Her daughter went to Lanier which was named after Sidney Lanier who is a racist white supremacist and confederate he was a poet. And I went to linear and her daughter came and her little linear. You know pity uniform. It was just like, thank you keep fighting but we really can't say anything because we get picked on at school. And so and so you know. So then even when I would share stories like that from the day, then the next thing you know I'm getting freedom of information like tell me who like who said that you're lying right and I wasn't gonNa tell them what child told me that because they were afraid and so then they were filing lawsuits and all kinds of stuff it was crazy randy. Let me ask you the same opposition points you're hearing today. Yes pretty much, and you know I would. I would also like to add to what July just said you know people talk about the cost of changing the name of the school but I would like to ask them what about the cost of not changing the school because not changing or not changing the name of the school. Does not changing the name of the school hurts the self esteem of students of color who attend the school, and it also impedes the accomplishments of those students because they just don't feel as good about themselves and I can tell you all students are hurt by having that name on their resume or having that come up in job interviews I myself as a white man. Have I'm sure have lost some jobs that I've applied to just because people saw it on my resume who were thinking of hiring me and they thought I don't know about this Guy as a matter of fact, I I I I recall I'm a retired teacher, and I recall the my very last teaching job that I had which started five years before I retired. I wouldn't for the interview and and when I mentioned Baytown Robert e Lee, high school, the teacher, or the principal who was interviewing me for the job. Gave me the Saad I and she looked at me with great skepticism and she said, well, you know our student population is about two thirds black and and about one third. Hispanic. So are you going to be okay without? And I had to work so hard to convince her that that young I've taught students of all races. I've been at several different schools and with with different ethnic make-up's and and to me kids are kids I love all kids and and I've got decades of teaching experience on I've got a great. Record of success as a teacher and and you know I really wanted that job and a, and I did get it but I had to work a lot harder at at landing it than I should have simply because the name of my high school.

Former general he he ran the war effort and Afghanistan for a while had to step down because of a Rolling Stone interview that doesn't matter anyway. This is all fairly recently. And and he's got a book out about leadership. But he said no point in his schooling. Did the question ever come up out about Robert E Lee, why was he willing to lead an army against his own country? What were his views on slavery? He said nobody ever asked that question in any discussion of Robert L E throughout my schooling. We just kind of skipped over it. And that is true for me too. Yeah. That's interesting. I I know I've considered that at length and talked about that at length in various classes, but I don't remember exactly when they occurred. It might have been college. One of these things in this is interesting from a modern perspective is he considered himself a Virginian more than un-american because your state was your primary locus of power was identity back in the day. That was a big part in. That's that's all very interesting. But the point getting back to the thanksgiving thing because it was interesting, but your tone was very dismissive.
