Most People Do Nothing When Evil Advances...
"A fact of life. Most people do nothing when evil advances. It is the cliche, the platitude, all it takes for evil to succeed is for good men to do nothing by Edmund Burke. You hear it all the time. Well, the truism is that most people do nothing when evil advances. Most people said idly by. When the railcars start to send people to concentration camps, that's an extreme example, but it's true. Most people said idly by. When churches were closed and strip clubs were allowed to remain open. It's just true. People are more comfortable being spectators of evil than actually interfering with evil. Now, in a decent and civil society, we have laws and we have enforcers of the law that make sure that citizens do not have to take things into their own hands. I do not want to live in a country where we the people have to become our own pseudo police. It's sloppy. It's messy. It's dangerous. It's not good. In fact, it is a mark of a third world country where you have to have citizens rise up against people that are committing crimes that are powerful. You do not want to live in that country at all. Well, right now there's a George Floyd two attempt that is bubbling up in downtown New York City. Do not take the bait on this and we're going to build this out for you. They're trying to turn this into Floyd palooza two. And the misrepresentations, the lies from the media. I mean, this is a whole new threshold. And for them, that's really something. So it's all around this situation, and it's a tragic situation. I don't think anyone should say that this is a desired outcome. Somebody died, it's awful. Jordan Neely, Jordan Neely, obviously had some schizophrenic tendencies with dozens of prior arrests. Now, 44 prior arrests, 44 prior arrests. Now, it has been proven yet, but there's some evidence to show that he even tried to push people onto the subway at times. He was well known on this particular subway stop.

Mitchell has big slam, 31 points as Cavs beat Nets 115-109
"Donovan Mitchell scored 31 points to lead the Cavaliers over the nets one 15 to one O 9. Mitchell hit 5 three porters and a fourth quarter highlight reel slam dunk in the cas 46 win, but says it could have been better. You know, we don't win by 6 or 8, whatever it is. It's a one point game. I think it's the entire offensive rebounds. They missed a few of the shots. It was much three tonight. They may make something. You know, and that's ultimately what's the separator. So they don't continue to be consistent with what we do. Care is the word added 18 points. While Darius Garland and Edmund mobley scored 17 apiece, they run sharp, led Brooklyn with 20 points and 11 rebounds off the bench as the nets dropped their four straight game.

Is the Word 'Conservative' Applicable Today? Dr. Steve Turley Explains
"Conservative, at least I think I am. I hate labels, I grew up under Maggie Thatcher. I guess I'm a paleo con or an old school conservative. But here's the problem, Steve. So theoretically conservatives want to conserve. They want to conserve that which has been demonstrated over millennia to work. Traditional values, the family, man is a man, woman is a woman and so forth. Conserve that which we know works. But in the last 80 years, they've destroyed that. So there is nothing to conserve. I mean, unless you go out to the rural, the heartland, there's nothing to conserve of any value where there is political power. So here's my question to you. Is the word conservative applicable today, if not what do we need to call it? And then secondly, how much harder is the job of those like you and me and those who believe in our nations in the westphalian system and national sovereignty and traditional values to be successful if we're basically recreating, we have to revivify that which the left is dismantled dismantled in the last 80 years since, you know, Antonio gramsci. Yeah, wow. Yeah. How many more questions? Many, many, but let's start with these ones. Oh, that's brilliant. No, I think you're right. I mean, conservatism is going through sort of a redefinition right now with the neocons getting pushed out. Finally, mercifully. And thanks to your team coming in in 2016, 2017. Yeah, to be right. To be and I love how you say things that work for a thousand years because that's the way I think we have to think. That's why I use the term Christendom in the book. I didn't just want to the original title was something on the coming Christian majority. And I got pushed back on that by some colleagues saying no, no, no. I mean, we got to go deeper. This isn't just pat Robertson two. Kind of thing. This is pat Robertson is dependent on generations generations and generation form. So definitely conservatism today, I think, is much more of the, you know, Russell Kirk and Edmund Burke sort of traditionalist. It's one who believes. Are we trad cons? Yeah, there you go. That's right. We are, we are. Medieval cons, something like that, right?

Shelby County to Study Reparations to Descendants of Slaves
"County, commissioners are expected to vote this afternoon to spend $5 million of your tax money. And by the way, you folks in bartlesville Oklahoma, this is your money we're talking about. Salem Oregon, this is your money, we're about to spend. They're going to spend $5 million to study the feasibility of a reparation plan specifically for and solely for black citizens. In Shelby county, Tennessee, which is the Memphis area. County commissioner Edmund Ford junior telling Forbes magazine. That this is a process of community reparations that provides an ecosystem to intentionally track and promote black wealth while providing access to assets and infrastructure. So this is one of these things where folks you watch what's going to happen here, they're going to be taking money from a hardworking citizen and they're going to be giving it to somebody else. Simple to because of the color of their skin. By the way, you want to know where they're getting the money. This is what's fascinating. This is what's fascinating. About this $5 billion check in. This is why it's your money. This is federal money we're talking about. They're using money they got from the China virus. These are federal China virus funds. You say, well, wait a second, Todd, how could they, how could they use that money when it was supposed to be for the China virus pandemic? That is a great question. And let me explain how they're able to do it. Because the county commission has declared that racism is a pandemic. Now I'm not making this up. So they're saying since racism is a pandemic, they can use the money that was set aside for the China virus pandemic, and they can start this process of sending us down a very dangerous and divisive road to reparations.

What I Learned From My Father With Steve Bannon
"About stoicism. But when you think of your late father now, what kinds of specific things you say, oh my gosh, now I understand, and I'm grateful for that. I think it's a Hindu term. I always refer back to called Dharma, which is really your duty in your station in life. What your purpose is, what your task, your purpose, your duty, is kind of a complicated term. And it's just, it's the little guy. It's a stoic householder. It's the thing that our civilization has always been built. Edmund Burke called it the little platoons of the average person. You know, in one regard, he was completely average person and another regard he was an extraordinary person. But in his extraordinary Ness was in a modern age, everything was sacrificed for the family. Everything was sacrificed for his wife, everything was sacrificed for his children. And that was his Dharma, right? That was his task as purpose as duty. And he fully saw that through to the end. And that's why I tell people, I said, when you see those little things, you look button, you reflect back over your life. When you reflect back over, it's those very small moments you have with your family with your father or your mother. That are the ones that you realize in the many years since you look back and you go, those are the most important moments. Those are the things I really learned something. That was a teaching moment

"To memorialize the incident. It was. Like I said, it was kind of controversial, but it seemed like, yes, it was, it was a good way to do it. And I saw footage from that 95 expedition where as that bell breaks the water, it started ringing just from the wave action. And it was like haunting, you know? Just to hear that. And it happened on its own like that. It was really something. So that's it. Now do you understand why kids along the Great Lakes are raised on their story? You understand now? I hope everybody else understands too and sheds a tear for the 29 souls that went down with the Edmund Fitzgerald. Agreed. Also chuck, we need to hat tip our good friend Ed grab a grab stir for helping us out with this when he did a fantastic job. Great, great article Ed. Since I just thanked Ed and since I also previously just spoke like a sea captain, of course it's time for listener mail. This guy just sounds awesome. And so I'm going to read his email. Hey guys, I was as per usual, I greatly enjoyed your podcast on typewriters. I particularly like the section on the IBM selectric. We got a lot of selectric enthusiasts, boomers that wrote in that were just like, oh man, what a great machine. As one of the earliest personal computer geeks I desperately wanted to printer, but the cheapest dot matrix printers were poor in quality and way out of my price range. So, in 1975, I bought a used selectric, took it apart. The marvel of mechanical engineering inside truly wondrous, I found that I could attach ten solenoids to the various levers and parts of the wiffle tree inside to make it fully computer controlled with an altair 8800 computer and I ended up printing my thesis on it. Super glad. Two minor additions to your description of this electric. The typewriter had only one motor to power all functions and it ran continuously. Clever clutches and linkages made everything from keystrokes and tabs to carriage returns, run from that single motor, the second thing to add was the greatest feature of this electric, the golf ball print head to be swapped very quickly to give you a whole new font. So you could type with italics, Greek letters, which is useful for scientific papers. Even special computer symbols as for the APL computer language. And that is from Ken wells, my new favorite listener. Yes, can hats off like I would be telling everybody that story too.

"There was no chance of saving any lives. But there wasn't much of an effort that could be made because the storm was so bad. The coast guard didn't have a rescue vessel available unless it came from, I think, Minnesota, which was like 24 hours away. They had search aircraft, but they couldn't perform rescues. And they said to the Anderson, hey, I know you just came in from this horrible experience at sea. Would you go back out there in this weather? And look for survivors. And the Anderson to their credit said, yeah, we'll do it. We'll do our best. Yeah, super to their credit because they didn't just ask the Anderson they asked all ships in the area who would go back and the Anderson, I think there was another one that went back, but a handful of them were like, no, we're not. It's just too risky. There's probably no survivors. We're just not doing it. And I saw that you really can't fault them. That's the smart thing to do if you're a captain, but it really is to the Anderson and the other ship's credit for having turned around and going back out there just on the slimmest chance that there was somebody who they could rescue. And what they found was a couple of battered lifeboats, little bit of flotsam, and that was it. I don't even think they found an oil slick. There was nothing. There were no survivors. There was no one, there were no corpses. There was just nothing there. What's amazing though, chuck is after just a couple of days, they managed to locate the ship. And they located the ship in about 530 feet of water, about 17 miles off of whitefish point right when they got to whitefish point. They would have hit the harbor. They would have been totally safe and that boat could go up almost 16 miles an hour at top speed, so they were roughly an hour away from safety. And they sank, it gets even worse. This was the last the last trip of the season. And the first mate and the captain were both retiring. So this was their last sale. Their last trip. So all of those things put together and you're like, man, that was so close and it went down, but when it went down, it doesn't matter if you're one mile or 17 miles or a hundred miles, that water is so cold. You're in trouble really fast. Yeah. That's the movie trope. If someone mentions retirement, if it's like a cop or somebody or anyone that drives a large thing, well, that show that you recommended to me even had that trope. I don't remember that part, but I have to go back and watch it. Do you like this show? Well, we're almost done. We got one more. I don't want to give away that part, but we're talking about the devil's hour. It's an Amazon Prime special original. We're way into it. But I don't want to say anything. I don't want to give anything away. Well, you're going to love the last episode because there's nothing that's left like unbuttoned. It's the opposite of severance. I have a feeling. Well, severance is continues, but does this show continue or is this a one off? No, this is it. 6 episodes. I'm about to get Scooby dude tonight then, right? Yeah, you're going to love it, dude. I'll be very surprised if you're like, this is terrible. Good joke. Good recommendation. Thank you. So the next spring, 1976, there was a one of those little unmanned robotic diving camera vehicles that did a big underwater search and survey of the record site. And what they found, which explains a lot, but also not doesn't explain really how it happened. But they explain how fast it happened when they found two pieces. They found the Edmund Fitzgerald basically in two big chunks, the bowel, which was upright, but it was listing at about 15°, and it was buried in 30 feet of mud. Which really indicates how fast it basically torpedoed to the bottom. Into 30 feet of mud, and then they had the aft section about a 170 feet away, which was upside down. So this boat essentially kind of broke in half. It did. And when it hit that 30 feet of mud, apparently the reason it stopped at 30 feet was because it hit bedrock. It would have kept going. It probably, but it hit bedrock, so it stopped immediately. And if you believe that that ship was in one piece as it was going down and hit hit the bottom, then that means all of that weight of the 26,000 tons of tech and I pellets all the water is carrying all the fuel. It still had came barreling toward the front that had stopped and that the whole thing just came apart. And apparently on the wreck site, there's about 200 feet of the ship missing, and it's not missing. It's just torn into such ribbons that it appears to just disintegrate it. But that seems to support the idea that it did go down in one piece, which is there's a couple of theories on that. Well, I guess we should talk about some of the theories. There have been plenty of dives over the years that went down there. I think the families were always worried that just recreational diverse. We're going to go down there and sort of desecrate a sacred spot. So it's in Canadian waters and over the years, the Ontario heritage act has been amended a few times to restrict access. So no one that's not official could get down there. So that's good. But there's a few theories about what happened officially. There are a couple of reports, one was from the NTSB. It was inconclusive, but basically said there were heavy seas. There were heavy waves. The ship basically became a wash and what they call green water, which are waves that are so deep that they actually have color to them. And the deck sides held all this water there. And the hatches were not fully watertight because as clamps weren't fastened down all the way. And so you just had water pouring in there and pouring in there and pouring in there and eventually that was enough water to fully collapse one of those huge steel doors for one of the cargo holes for one of those hatches and just massive amounts of water started pouring in and it sank super fast. Yeah, and I saw a presentation by a guy I can't remember if it's Rick or Bruce mixer. He's one of the people who's officially been a member of dives and expeditions to the Edmund Fitzgerald. And he showed pictures of those clamps that were still intact, and he made a really good point, I thought. If those clamps had been shut on a hatch that was torn off or popped off when the ship hit that bedrock, that clamp would be in pieces. It would be all twisted. But the fact that it's intact suggests that it was not attached to your clamped at the time that the ship sunk. So probably almost certainly were clamps that were not attached, that were not clamped down, but whether that's what caused the problem or not, that's a big point of contention. Because again, it says, this guy should have known better. They really should have clamped the stuff. Maybe they would have survived, had they had they clamped their hatches like they were supposed to, or it's, you know, this was a force of nature that was inevitable. Right. That's kind of what it comes down to. And depending on who you are, you know, especially if you're a family member, because there's plenty of family members still alive. Oh, sure. This is so recent. The Arthur and Anderson is still, it still works. It's still out there on the Great Lakes today. And there's plenty of family members who aren't like, you know, great, great grandsons. We should have been our dads, you know? Yeah, there are people whose dads they were are alive now. And get really upset at the idea that, you know, the suggestion that this was their fault. So much so that apparently Gordon Lightfoot in the original version of the song, he talks about the hatch as being unlatched and he found out how upset that was making the families. And that it was possible that wasn't true. And he went back and revised the lyrics. Yeah. That is why he's the pride of Canada. I think he a couple of different times revised the lyrics to sort of more accurately reflect what may have happened, which yeah, I mean, that's something that you don't see a lot. Okay, so if the hatches were open, chuck, that would fully explain how the ship sunk, because like you said, these were screened dividers that kept that didn't really separate the holds from one another from water, right? Right. So water going in one of these giant 40 48 by 11 foot hatch openings would probably be enough to sink the ship. That's one, that's one idea. There's another idea that has nothing to do with hatches too, right? Yeah, I mean, there are a couple the Lake carriers association, they had a report that suggested that it struck a Shoal, the 6 fathom Shoal and Caribou island. And this is based on some different things, partially that captain Cooper of the Anderson noted that the Edmund Fitzgerald was closer to Caribou than made him comfortable. He was like, they're a little too close. So it may have hit the shoulder, but I think they haven't really found Shoal damage at the wreckage site. And then the other big one is possibly a series of three rogue waves that just took this thing down in quick succession. Yeah, the captain of the Anderson Bernie Cooper apparently said later on that there were two waves that passed him that were just huge and he was behind the Edmund Fitzgerald, which meant those waves were heading toward the Edmond Fitzgerald. And he said it was right at the time around between 7 ten, 7 20 that would have fully accounted for pushing the ebb and Fitzgerald down. And all it had to do again was get that bow down underwater and get the stern up out of the water a little bit and all of those tech and Ike pellets would have slid forward and it would have just been the end from that point on. And it would have happened really, really fast too if that's exactly what happened. So it's possible if they did get swamped by a couple of waves, it was over in seconds, basically. Yeah, I mean, they went down in ten minutes. That also helps explain why there was no time to get into lifeboats or anything like that. It's also why they didn't, the only bodies they found, I think we're still in the ship, basically. We mentioned earlier that not quite sister ship the Homer as far as comparing like, hey, this thing was welded and not riveted and it always did fine. It didn't go through a storm like this. So you can't make a direct comparison. There's also other theories that like those hatch covers were maybe damaged by equipment flying around or like a tree, you know, it was along the short line, so there could have been like trees out there being washed aboard. Well, plus also they were carrying a spare propeller blade massive propeller blade on deck. So it's possible that that got loose and started sliding around. That would have caused some pretty big damage too. But you just don't know. It's not far back in time as this was in 75, like we have a really accurate records of it going out and what it was carrying and how many people were on board. And what time everything happened. But it's what happened in that lost ten minutes that no one will ever really know, I don't think. Yeah, no, it's almost certain we won't know because there were three major expeditions on the wreck, 89, 94 and 95. And after the 95 expedition, the family said, okay, we've gotten all the evidence we can get. We don't want anyone diving on the wreck anymore. And the people on the expedition promised they wouldn't dive on the Edmund Fitzgerald anymore. And I think since 2004 or 5, like you said, it's been protected by the government of Ontario. So you could get to it, but you could probably get in trouble and also you would be diving on a grave, a grave site, basically. And you're not really supposed to do that, especially when the families alive and asking you not to do that. Yeah. And there's actually a piece of the Edmund Fitzgerald that you can go see at the Great Lakes shipwreck museum in whitefish point. And it's the bell. The bell of the yeah, it was raised in 1995 on that expedition. There was a huge team of people from all over the world who came together, the family was there on the 85 foot yacht that was donated by the guy who invented the bundt pan and got very wealthy from that, and I guess took an interest in helping those people out. James Bond. I can't remember what his name is. I feel like a jerk for not remembering him. But no, it wasn't bunt. It's a variation of bund. Yeah, they added the tea, I think, to make it less Nazi ish. But they raised the bell, and there was a lot of controversy about that too chuck because that's part of the ship. According to some people, that's the heart and soul of the ship is the bell. And enough of the families wanted it that the government of Ontario along humanitarian ground said, okay, you guys can go retrieve that. And it's now you can see it at the Great Lakes shipwreck museum. And they replaced it with a replica of the bell that has the inscription of all 29 men who went down with the ship. Their names on that. Yeah, classy move. And when they brought it up, they had a big ceremony where they rang the bell 30 times. 29 for the lost souls and then one to commemorate all the other souls lost at sea on the Great Lakes. So I don't have any family that was on that ship, but it seemed like a, I think like a pretty respectful way

"Sheltering. And working. Yeah, but I mean, I think sheltering as much as anything. It had a bad list. It was getting battered by waves that I think the Anderson later reported were up to 25 feet. And it was taking on water to some degree or another. We just don't know. 7 10 p.m., so this is the first time he radioed the Anderson saying we got some problems with two 30. Made their way all the way along the 7 10 p.m. and the Anderson this time got in touch with the Edmond Fitzgerald and said, hey, there's another ship heading northbound. Just wanted to give you the heads up. How are you guys doing? And the response from the Edmund Fitzgerald was we're holding our own. And that turned out to be the final message from the Edmund Fitzgerald. That was at 7 10 p.m.. A squall whipped up and temporarily not only blinded the visuals from Anderson of the Edmund Fitzgerald. It swamped their radar too, so they couldn't catch anything on radar for about ten minutes. Then the whole thing cleared up and they could see again, but what they couldn't see was the Edmund Fitzgerald. And it's not that they couldn't see because they could see that northbound ship further away. They could see the lights of whitefish point further away, but what they did not see was the Edmond Fitzgerald. So in that ten minutes that had been finished, went from being on top of the Great Lakes to sinking, which is a astoundingly fast for a 730 29 foot ship. Yeah, super fast. I think that's a great place for a second break.

"He was the original captain, he was certainly probably one of the most well-known captains of the Edmund Fitzgerald the guy named Peter pulsar. And he was well known for going through these locks, like this ship was designed to just barely squeeze through the lock. So it was an enormous thing to see. Coming like, you know, you could reach out and touch it basically as it was going through the locks. And then to make it even more impressive, captain pulsar would alternately play music from speakers. It took basically give everybody a show. Well, the Edmund Fitzgerald was going through the locks. Or he would use a bullhorn to shout facts about how amazing the ship was. I like this guy. Yeah, he was pretty cool. He was not the captain when the Edmund Fitzgerald went down. Instead, that captain was Ernest mcsorley. And much like the admin Fitzgerald, mcsorley was well regarded on the lakes as well. Yeah, and mcsorley was sort of known, as we'll see later as someone who would kind of go through a storm, if at all possible. It didn't seem like he was reckless or anything like that. Or would relish in putting his crew in danger, but there were, you know, there were times where certain boats would pull back and say, hey, maybe we should wait this one out. And other boats would push through. And he seemed to be the kind of captain that would generally try and push through. Yeah. So if there was a fateful day in the history of the Edmund Fitzgerald, it was Sunday, November 9th, 1975. Because that was when the fits, the Toledo express, set sail from superior Wisconsin, carrying 26,116 tons of tech and Ike pellets. And I did some math. Oh boy. Pretty sure it's right. Here we go. That's 58 and a half million pounds of musket sized pellets of iron ore or for our friends outside of the imperial system world. 26.5 million kilograms. That's a lot. And add on to that, 50,000 gallons of fuel, oil. That's a lot of weight itself. So, but it wasn't technically overloaded. It was well loaded. Yes. And it left it set sail at two 15 in the afternoon for zug island in Lake Michigan. And I was like, zug island, zug island. Detroit. But I was like, but that's not what I know it from. And then I remembered. Do you remember our episode on the hum? People can just some people here at home and it drives them crazy. Well, there's a Windsor hum and I remember they associated with zug island and I looked it up and it turns out that during the pandemic, U.S. steel company, who had a steel plant on zug island, basically shuttered their operations just for due to lack of availability of raw materials, right? And the hum vanished. That's right. So they figured it out. It was U.S. steel. One of their, one of their components of their whole setup. I like that. I need two. I thought it was definitely worth mentioning. All right, so they're headed toward that island, which is in Lake Michigan. Like you said, it was two 15 about two hours and 15 minutes later at four 30. The SS Arthur M Anderson set sail from Minnesota, headed to Gary Indiana. And they're going to two different places, but they took a similar route, which we'll talk about why here in a minute. But the sort of, again, the long and the short of this is that there was another boat, another ship nearby, kind of for this whole route in nearby, meaning under 20 miles and sometimes even as close as like 12 to 15 miles away, which is not tailgating someone, but it's pretty close as far as ship travel goes. Yeah, I mean, they could keep their lights in sight the whole time basically. And the Anderson would end up basically being like the hero of the story. So just keep that in mind. Yeah. So a couple of things about the Great Lakes themselves. Like I said, ships designed to travel the Great Lakes are probably not quite as hardy as a seagoing vessel, but they're still pretty tough because the Great Lakes has some pretty bad weather, particularly in November. And when storms start blowing across the Great Lakes in November, the sailors up there call it the witch of November. And usually November is the end of the season. They'll have their last runs of the year in November, try to get as much shipping in as they can before the weather turns. And when the weather turns, it really, really turns, especially on Lake Superior because Lake Superior is huge and long, and there's a lot of room for that wind to blow an obstructed across the Lake and really pick up some steam. Yeah, you know, we've talked about this in our hurricane episodes and tsunami episodes. Anytime you have long stretches of water that a storm is riding across is going to pick up energy from that water and moisture and wind is going to create bigger and bigger waves. I think we did one on rogue waves, which is really cool. And this large stretch of Lake Superior was, I mean, it wasn't the most well traveled area, and it seems like at least at the time Lake Superior itself, despite being massively huge, was one of the least traveled of the Great Lakes, at least as far as these shipping lines go. Yeah, I guess just because there were there was more action on the other Great Lakes maybe. Yeah, I think only about 350 shipwrecks in Lake Superior out of the and we saw different numbers. I think 6000 is what most people around 6000 shipwrecks and all the Great Lakes. I saw it as high as ten, but I think it might depend on that might be like all boats or something. I don't know. Yeah, I'm not sure either. I definitely saw both. But still, that's a pretty low ratio. And it's because it's just not quite as traveled. In addition to being huge and wide, it's also really deep. I saw somewhere that it's about 1200 feet deep at its deepest point. It's also extremely cold, where on the Lake bottom, a few hundred feet down, there's basically no aerobic life down there. It's just devoid of. It's like basically a freezer. It hovers at about 32 33° just above freezing. Or wait, 0° is just above freezing, but still it's really, really cold. 32° is. And so anybody who falls in the water is going to catch hypothermia pretty fast. It's just one of the parts of the Lake. Like it's always cold. Basically year round. You just have to know that about it. All right, so I think that's a great setup for what's going on. But these lakes look like. Sounds like I'm going to break, but we just did that. It does. So they set out the Anderson and the Fitzgerald. And they decide because of this weather coming in. I believe the most dangerous weather there at superior comes from the northwest, north by northwest. Is that right? So they decide, all right, this weather is coming. We're going to take what people that sail that area jokingly called the scenic route. Which was basically to try and stay as far away from the meat of this storm as possible. And it would take a little bit longer, but it was supposedly a safer route. If you have bad weather coming in. Yeah, but as we'll see, it would be a very fateful decision. And this was this happened to be a voyage chock full of fateful decisions. Yeah. But that scenic route, and they purposely took the scenic route because the weather was supposed to be bad. I think they left at two 30 p.m. and by 7 p.m. there was a Gale warning for the entire Lake. So that's a big storm. I think this one actually came up from Oklahoma, they said, across the plains, hit the Lake and just started messing things up. So they took this northern route to try to stay away from the weather as much as possible. But like you said, mcsorley was known as a heavy weather captain, so he was definitely the type to push ahead. He wasn't the only one to push ahead through this storm. There were plenty of others. The Arthur Andersen among others who were just making their way through the storm because they had ships they believed in. But they also passed a handful of different places where they could have stopped and waited out the storm in safety and didn't. They pressed on another handful

"Lakes. Yeah, just as an investment. Yeah, and one of the reasons why it became such a attractive investment for anybody, including an insurance company, was that the saint Lawrence seaway was opened. I believe in 1959. And at that point, the Great Lakes were connected to the Atlantic Ocean. So now you had even more of a market to export to. Your iron ore too. So it wasn't a bad idea. And there was really nothing wrong with their ownership from top to bottom from what I could tell. No, it wasn't like some insurance scam. No, I don't think so. As a matter of fact, it would have been pretty audacious to have named the ship after the president of Northwestern Mutual if the whole thing was a scam, you know? That's who Edmund Fitzgerald was, right? Yeah, for sure. And apparently the legend goes. Edmund Fitzgerald, the president of the insurance company, did not want the ship named after him. It could not see why, but at a board meeting he excused himself to go to the bathroom and the board voted and went ahead and overruled him and named it after him anyway. As the legend goes, he was probably just sort of demurring and being like, hey, I'm going to step out, but make sure this happens. Oh, I heard when he came back, he went and bonkers and broke some chairs. Right now. He seems like a pretty mild banner guy from what I could tell. Sure to have a ship named after you. Sure. So should we go over a little bit of the nuts and bolts of the or I guess not really bolts because you're soon learning this thing was welded. Man, that was chef's kiss. Of the Eddie Fitz, the SS Edmund Fitzgerald was 729 feet long, 75 feet wide. 39 feet tall from top of the keel to the bottom of the deck. And had three and some of the stuff you want to put a pin in. Had three cargo holds that were separated by bulkheads or they're called screen bulkheads, in other words, they're not watertight. So if water comes in one of these cargo holds and fills up enough, or tilts a certain way, it can go into the other cargo holds. And there's three of them, and if it's just bad news, if something starts filling up. But it wasn't like a weird design screen bulkheads. It wasn't a weird thing. No, because this ship was designed and built to sail on the Great Lakes. It wasn't intended to be an ocean going ship. And I'm the Great Lakes yet, I think, get some pretty bad weather from time to time, specifically in November, apparently. It's nothing like an Atlantic storm, or even a Pacific storm. I'm sure. So yeah, it's not very weird that it was built like that. It was also designed to hold up to 30,000 tons. 13 thousand tons of tech and I pellets. Normally it would handle something around 26,027 thousand, but it could, it kept getting raided the company kept going to the coast guard and saying, it can hold more. It can hold more and the coast guard kept signing off on increasing the load limits to up to, I think, about 30,000 tons at one point. And again, this is not, this is not unheard of. It's not super weird. But the Edmund Fitzgerald was known as a record breaker and usually a broke its own records. So it was a very well known, beloved, well thought of ship on the Great Lakes. That's right. And I mentioned that it was welded most ships at the time. And I think still most ships are riveted because welding welding is great, but welding doesn't hold up like rivets hold up. But again, this was a ship for the Great Lakes. It was launched without even being finished completely. It's not like they had big holes in the bottom or anything like that. But they wilder was like, wait, wait. We forgot to put in the plug. Which I've forgotten actually on a boat before. Oh yeah? Yeah. It's no good. Water comes in. Is that where the rope trauma came from? No. But it didn't fall off a boat. All right, you're getting closer. Awesome. Okay, we're getting there. That's a big hint. So they had these, this was sort of unusual for a ship like this for an ore shipping ship. They had a really sort of styled out pilot house and crew quarters and mess area because and this is the stuff that wasn't quite finished when they launched because this entrance company owned it. They kind of was a bit of a feather in their cap to own this at the time. Largest ship on the Great Lakes, I think, for about a year. So it was the largest one. I have something about that chuck, the ship that overtook it. The next year was one foot longer. Wouldn't that just drive you bananas? Yeah. That's clearly on purpose. For sure, yeah, definitely. Although, I'm looking now the Edmund Fitzgerald was 729 feet long. Maybe they should have just surrounded that off. Yeah, I don't know why they did that. Maybe they were like, well, that's how much iron we have to build this. You're kind of asking for that extra foot though. But they could have made it two feet bigger. Ten feet bigger. He knows, but one foot. That is a thumb in the eye, I think. So the long and the short of it is these insurance executives were super proud of this ship. They thought it was kind of cool. And they like to go out on it and ride along on these runs. So that's why they had sort of extra nice accommodations for the ship. That was kind of the welding design was, I don't want to say weird, but it was definitely not what they usually did. But again, it wasn't like some big red flag. No, it was like an accepted way to build a ship from what I could tell. Yeah. Those executives would go out on these voyages because the Edmund Fitzgerald was so fast. One of his nicknames was the Toledo express because it could make it from Duluth, Minnesota, to Toledo, Ohio, and back in 5 days. So if you were an exec, you could just basically go for a couple day voyage and you would be eating like lobster and steak from what I understand. They were styled out for sure. So it was a really fast ship. It could hold a lot of ore, there were frequently insurance executives partying on it. It was, again, a well regarded ship on the Great Lakes. I can't stress that enough. It was very well regarded. Long before the song. So one thing we do mention that you should also put a pin in is hatch clamps. They have those three cargo holes and in order to load the iron ore into the cargo holes. They had 21 hatch openings. I guess 7 apiece. And they were very, very large hatch openings, 11 feet by 48 feet, and the doors were made of a single steel slab, and they had a rubber gasket to keep it water tight, but there were 68 clamps per hatch and you had to manually crank these things down. So every time you're loading unloading these things, that's almost 1500 clamps that have to be engaged by human power. And we say that because apparently when the day of the fateful voyage, it was reported that they don't think all those hatches were completely down. And if the weather was really good, it sounds like they did that kind of thing where you're like building Ikea furniture. I don't need all 8 screws. I can probably just get by with the three. Right? I've seen both. So this is a really big point of contention because it either places the blame on the crew for their fate or an unfairly places the blame on the crew for their fate. So it does seem like it was totally within the realm of possibility that under fair-weather, a captain of iron carrier or carrier. Would have set sail without all the clamps done. But they wouldn't have been like, just forget it, let's go watch some MTV. They would still just be putting the clamps on while they were setting safe. Yeah. And then they would finish as they were making their way out to sea. So it's possible that they did believe port that day, I think, November 9th, Sunday, November 9th, 1975. Without all of their clamps hatched, or all their hatches clamped, but that doesn't mean that they

Hey, before we get going, I want to make a quick announcement, very sadly, Emily's grandmother, Mary, as we referred to her as the general of the stuff senior general of the stuff you should know army. I don't like where this is going. I know. She finally passed away. About two weeks shy of a 102, so, you know, don't feel bad about life shortchanged. Yeah. She got every bit of it in about a hundred and maybe a half of those years were pretty darn good, that's amazing. I'm not going to get on my soapbox about the fact that we live in a state where our loved ones can just slowly dwindle into nothingness, which is awful to see happen. But we finally lost Mary and it's always sad, even though you kind of pre grieve these things. But I have it will be up on Facebook now and the stuff you should know army. Facebook page, something we always did for her at her birthday was gave her a shout out and she loved more than anything sitting around in reading the hundreds of well wishes from all over the world. Just take a little pink. So there is an in memoriam post up by the time this will come out. I'm going to get it up there on the stuff you should know army page. Via Aaron Cooper, somebody. So it would be great if people as a final gesture said a couple of words about it. Yeah, well, RIP Mary. Yeah. Stuff you should know army general. If not like 5 star general even maybe. Absolutely. It was rough at the end so it's always good to see someone very old that's not doing great to pass along, you know. To go home, that's what they call it once you get to that age. Going home, like Mötley Crüe saying, was that my life? Yeah, I think they were talking about. No, that wasn't Mötley Crüe. Who's saying that? My mom would go, oh, that was Ozzy. Yeah, but Mötley Crüe had one about home sweet. Going home too. Yeah, home sweet home. No, no, no. We saw them play that. I think you're thinking of smoking in the boys room. I was. Wasn't that Thin Lizzy? No, wow, originally, I think so. Well, there you go. Speaking of OG's chuck, I feel like we should talk about one of the OG iron freighters of all time that met a tragic end, and it was called the Edmond Fitzgerald. And I just want to say I promise for the rest of the year, my segues will be much better than that. Well, I hit everyone with an obituary right out of the gate. It's true. I think you did a pretty good job. Here's how dumb I am. I knew about the song because it's a song I hate more than almost any other song. Why? It's terrible. Why? No, it's not. What about it's terrible? You know, like folk stuff? I love folk music. I'm not a big fan of sea shanties. I see. And this is a classic, the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald by Gordon Lightfoot is a classic sea shanty. For sure. Because they don't have, they don't have a chorus. They don't have a hook. They're not written for that purpose. It's just sort of this repetitive thing over and over. Take me to the bridge. There's no bridge. There's no nothing. But that repeated Swedish chef bit that I did. So I knew about the song, but I never looked closely at the lyrics. Because I hate it so much. So I'm so dumb. I always thought the Edmund Fitzgerald was like, the Titanic or some classic old ocean liner from the 19th century or something. No, sir. I did not know that it was a fairly modern day metal ore shipping vessel. Yeah, that's exactly what it was. It was a Great Lakes vessel. Didn't know that. I thought it was probably like 1910 or something. Yeah, no, it sunk in 1975, and it wasn't even a twinkle in a ship maker's eye in 1910. It wasn't created until I think 1958 was when it was finally launched. So it was fairly recent, I would say. Yeah, and to my defense, I'm going to defend myself here because you're not stepping up. When you raised in Atlanta, you don't like the shipwrecks of the Midwest of the early 70s. You know, it's just not something that a kid really learned. Okay, so the reason I wasn't stepping up was because it is what kids learn when you grow up and Toledo or Detroit or Cleveland. You probably did, right? Yeah, it was raised to knowing about the Edmund Fitzgerald. I didn't know anything about it. And I didn't have a seagoing member in my entire family, and my whole family knew about the Edmund Fitzgerald. And for some reason, because if you sit down and look at it on paper, you will wonder why. It actually, it was a very famous shipwreck and there were some things to it. There was a huge ship. It was a very beloved ship before it sank. So there were a couple of things that could make it memorialized a little more than the average shipwreck, but it is at least around the Great Lakes region. It is second only to Titanic as far as shipwrecks of import go. That is how big the Edmund Fitzgerald shipwreck was around there and still is, I think, to this day. And they love that song up there too. I know that for a fact, so. I'm sure there's people who hated up there though too, that a lot of people are mad at me. This is all I'm saying. Yeah, Gordon Lightfoot, the guy who's saying the song. He was known as the pride of Canada. Yeah. I think I don't know if he's still around or not, but he was definitely a beloved songwriter. So we definitely have lost a few Canadian fans. Thanks to you. I like Gordon Lightfoot. I like that other big hitty head. Which one? What was it? I saw that there was another hit and I could not figure out what it was. Didn't he sing someday, dirty, dirty buttery meat. Yes, I don't know if that was him. I know the song you're talking about. Then that's a great song. I agree. Okay, clearly don't know these lyrics. So let's get into this. Okay, because there's probably plenty of people outside of the United States outside of the northern Midwest and northeast, who haven't really heard much about the Edmund Fitzgerald if at all. So let's talk about the Edmund Fitzgerald, shall we? Sure. And you know, I kind of gave away a little bit of the story and when I said it was it carried metal ores specifically, iron ore, they found a lot of this stuff in the 1800s in Ontario and Canada and Wisconsin and Minnesota and the upper Peninsula of Michigan. And so all of a sudden an industry was born where these Great Lakes, all of a sudden saw these big ships and they were like, hey, we got this iron ore. We're going to ship it in the form of taco night pellets. All over the Midwest to wherever they need steel. And it was so lucrative that other companies got in the game because they were like, hey, you can invest in the ship. You don't have to be in that business. And you can make tons of money, and that's what happened with the Eddie Fitz. Yeah, because the Edmund Fitzgerald was owned by Northwestern Mutual life insurance company. It's so weird. And there's no like, wow, wait a minute. What's the catch here? There is none. Northwestern Mutual. Commissioned a shipbuilders on Lake Erie. To build a design and build a ship for them for the purpose of transporting

Border Patrol Agents Get Into Heated Exchange With Leadership During Mayorkas Visit
"The Biden administration has for cynical political reasons. Essentially left the border open porous. And people are pouring through a record numbers of people. It seems like every month we exceed the record of the previous month, the latest data from December shows a another record, 180,000 people across the border in December, surpassing the previous numbers to give you an idea only 75,000 crossed in December of 2020. So a big surge. And this is all being done, not just with the complicity, but with the invitation of Majorca, Kamala Harris, and of course President Biden himself. You can imagine what it's like to be a border patrol agent. And if you want to just get a sense of the kind of frustration that border patrol agents feel and being asked to do a job in an impossible situation, take a peek at this. Listen. If we're going to mention the number of exactly what's happening, this men are doing nothing. You're allowing the new aim here to talk about communities. You are doing something. You are. Your rescue and people every day. You're taking 5th all on streets every day. You're taking that benefit on the different ways. In the history of our country. In one year, in this country. So what's happening here? Well, Alex Mallorca is the head of the Department of Homeland Security DHS in town, and of course this is just bringing out the anger of the ordinary border patrol agents. And here's border patrol chief raul Ortiz. And he's in Laredo, Texas. And he's sort of trying to calm the border patrol agents and sort of put on a brave face like they're doing the best job they can and they're not having it. So Ortiz is basically saying, well, listen, you know, we're still doing a lot of good work, guys. You know, we're still stopping the fentanyl as best we can. And the border patrol agents are having none of it. They're saying, listen, there's record numbers of fentanyl coming in. They're coming in apparently with the kind of wink wink of the Biden administration. And so what are we even doing here? We can't even use the word illegal. We can't call them illegal aliens. And then, of course, Ortiz goes, well, you call them illegals right now. I'm not firing you, am I? So you've got a guy who's a supervisor, and he's obviously an apparatchik. In other words, he has to represent the Biden administration. He has to pretend like their jobs are not being systematically abused. But I love the line where one of the agents is in effect quoting Edmund Burke. That's exactly what's happening here. Good men are doing nothing.

"That's the plan that we that's the plan that we're going to we're going to look to we're quite interested in buying a lot of the startup EVs. Because particularly with the startup brands, particularly with the new technology, a lot of the proof, the proof comes from living within spending a year and doing a ten of miles in them. It's all very well going to a press event and driving it for a couple of hours and coming to an opinion, but we really want to live with a lot of these new cars and just experience what a customer will do. You know, I know the Vivian, the R one T, that's the pickup truck, right? It is smaller than an F one 50, but I think everyone's going to be looking at Ford lightning versus rivian pickup trucks. And it's kind of a gamble. It's like the rivian's kind of cool. It's a little faster. It's probably got a little bit more range, it's got some neat features on it, but the four potentially has a hell of a lot more experience behind it with the company. I mean, you could argue that the powertrains are both new to those companies. But the rest of the F one 50 is not really that new. So when you start to look at things like fit and finish and door gaps and features that people have asked for on trucks over the years and the way all the big truck companies ram even tundra Toyota, Chevy Ford, what they've done to their trucks over the years has been, as a result of decades of feedback. So the rivian seems very interesting to me, but yeah, I hesitate to pull the trigger on one or the other as a customer without really starting to see some heads up comparison. Yeah, and I think that's why we're looking fortunate as we were looking to buy both of them. We got an order in for the lightning. The line is going to be bigger. It's also it's going to be potentially cheaper. I mean, it starts at a much lower price point, the ribbon starts at 75. You know, you're going to be able to get a lightning for certainly under 50. But I think you will also be able to speculate lightning up up to 70 80 grand just as you can a normal F one 50. More than that, the platinum long-range, whatever they're saying 94, 96,000 bucks. You're knocking on the door of a $100,000. Yeah, and the rivian, the rivian, you probably going to be spending just over 80. I mean, honestly, I know rivian's just had this crazy IPO and it's now worth what a $120 billion as we speak are something like that. Yeah. But it's very little margin in this truck. I mean, you know, we've been in the game long enough to understand, you know, where money's made in cars. You know, you look at the size of the battery pack and what's on that thing. You know, they might be making money in the stock market, they're not making money from the trucks. I would suggest. Yeah, and look, do we have another viable contender coming out within a reasonable time frame? Something the beginning to mid next year. And I'm not talking Hummer EV because that's that's not really a contender per se. The thing is massive and it's I mean, it's cool it's gimmicky and it's just, but it's not really a competitor. You're not going to get the thing for 65 grand. The hum is going to be well over a hundred. No, I mean, the big one on the horizon allegedly is the CyberTruck. But that was supposed to be nothing. So zero. Hummel would be good in Texas, Bill, surely. Yeah, yeah. It wouldn't be as good as my TRX, but yeah, I'd give it a try for sure. I need to get out of a couple ravines and do that sideways like crab wall. Crab walk thing. I mean, you know, hey, I'd give it a shot for sure. I would say this. It doesn't wave very much. Yeah, right? It doesn't wave anymore. When you test it, I want to see if that thing stops. But it's an interesting point, Bill is is where you are if the Hummer has a pretty decent range. And as kind of a as a kind of a cool commuter vehicle, it's big. It's going to be something that would fit you well. You're able to like the key. Yeah. I don't know what the range is going to be on the Hummer. Do you know Alistair? I mean, I expected to probably be around the 300 mark in reality. Everything's settling around sort of three, two 50 to 400. You know, we were having this conversation of the day too about the EV stuff going, you know, the EV stuff is getting interesting. And I would consider getting an EV. But it just seems like we're. Two years away. Maybe three, but probably two years away from all of these vehicles jumping from that two 50 to 300 range to the four 50 to 500 range Mark. Whatever it's going to take, it seems like obviously a couple things lucid and whatever are getting there. And maybe the Mercedes has got their version of it. But it just seems like we're going to find a way to do. And by the way, I don't mean Justin battery technology. I just mean the car companies going, okay, we found out how to make the vehicles a little bit lighter, how to slim back on a few things that are overbuilt on the cars and we can save a little bit of money and we can improve a little bit aerodynamics and we can found some better packaging and better programming and that probably accounts for ten to 20% of the range. And then the rest is battery technology. Yeah, and that's I think that's the dilemma because you can give something a massive rate and you just build in more batteries, but then you're carrying around a ton of weight. I mean, the rivian, I think we talked about this on the last time as I wasn't. The rivian weighs 7007 1200 and something pounds when we put it on the scales. And if that is the cool thing in Europe that you'd have to have like a light commercial, you'd have to have like an additional driving license because it's so heavy in Europe. So it weighs pretty much the same as like F two 50 or F three 50 or heavy duty truck. So it's crazy 'cause it's so small. They're gonna do a long range pack, which you'll have an even bigger battery. So and it's the least efficient vehicle we've ever tested. Choose the first pickup. So fair enough at some level. But yeah, you can solve the problem by just bolting in more battery, but then you built in more weight and you bolt in more cost. So I think efficient will come. There's also that point about, if the infrastructure gets better as well, there may be 300 miles is okay. You know, 300, 350 consistently, but you know this is the challenge at the moment.

It's 6 p.m. in France in COVID ridden Europe, actually, so I'm kind of slightly nervous about getting home again, but yeah, it's pretty pretty crazy over here at the moment, but I'm in France at the moment, then into the UK to see my parents just after Christmas. Okay, well, didn't know we were allowed to travel really. I have no idea. I've been out of the loop on all of that, but I guess you got your international baby pass. Yes. Yes. It's kind of an interesting conversation. I actually was, you might have seen in the news, they changed the travel restrictions between France and the UK because of all the Omni chrome stuff going on. And I'd literally checked into the train to go to the UK when the change of rules. So I was technically out of France, but not into the UK when I had to turn around again. I was trying to explain that I have a British guy with a French wife and an American baby and how did that apply? How did the rules apply? And they were all looking at their iPhones, all this is a French police and the British police, their iPhones. Nobody loves. So anyway, I'm hold up in France and then trying to get back to the UK on the 26th, which is going to be entertaining. So I think I'm having 7 COVID tests between leaving LA and getting back to LA. It's like 800 bucks as well. It's crazy. Oh, yeah, yeah, I didn't think about that. Okay, well, listen, I want to get into some stuff. I've never ending the year on some big news.

Edmund Burke and the Birth of Traditional Conservatism
"Burke, the father of western conservatism. Wrote a great book reflections on the French Revolution. Famously said that a properly ordered society has a three tied knot. It's a compact. So social contract theorists range from Jean Jacques Rousseau to John Locke, to Thomas Hobbes, and Edmund Burke is never looped into a social contract theorist, but he did make a very significant contribution into what he believed a moral society would have as their north star. What he thought of what a north society a moral society should have as their central operating thesis, which is a three type not. A look at the sacrifices in the history and the culture and the tradition that came before you. A focus on the immediate and what we're living through, but most importantly, the generation that is yet to be born and the country we're trying to pass down. That is literally where we get the word conservative from. When we are recklessly spending trillions of dollars we don't have, what are we conserving exactly? Now I know at times for whatever reason, this is no longer the sexiest story to talk about on the right. It seems as if we are now in the era of big deficits and debt and that we just kind of allow ourselves to be hypnotized by the capital flow of cheap money.

Democrats Assess Where They Went Wrong as a ‘Red Tsunami’ Takes Hold in New York
"The fault line is being exposed, the Democrats are doing an autopsy of why they lost in every possible direction from Edward durr to the Virginia governor's race to the lieutenant governor's race in Virginia. How bad was it actually? Well, I just want to. I want to hear, let's just local news report cut 87. This is in New York, Nassau county. Play cut 87 just so you understand what Democrats are dealing with. Even in New York play tape. The shock resonated from the New York suburbs down the eastern seaboard. People are saying there was a red wave, they're wrong. It was a red tsunami. Republican Bruce blakeman declaring victory in the Nassau executive race considered the biggest upset here since Edmund Ghana when seated Tom swazi in 2009. We had the right message. It was taxes. It was crime. People are fed up with a liberal, progressive policies of the other party. This isn't the party of John F. Kennedy anymore. It's the party of AOC and Bernie Sanders, and they're rejecting that. And Joe Biden, they're rejecting that. I said this yesterday to Connor, and I said this to Andrew, I said, if the Democrats continue with this, and if they are unable to inoculate themselves, and remove the tumor, that is woke ism from their party. It is not out of the conversation that if conservatives do their job, and they don't, they're not run by a bunch of feckless morons, which is so often the case, we could end up winning states like New Jersey and Connecticut.

Eleven to as a low level user during the installation process can leverage this flock to gain full system control and cybersecurity terms. This is called privilege escalation or escalation elevation of privileges it's when processes or users gained powers. They shouldn't have however. This law isn't the fault of steel series or a razor. Those companies are just trying to get their software and stone quickly. This is instead of microsoft issue because windows isn't distinguishing between hardware drivers which normally don't need admin permissions to install and peripheral related desktop software which should need edmund permission microsoft needs to fix this privilege escalation situation before more problems like this pop up as they almost certainly will. So what can you do about this to avoid having your p. honed by gaming peripherals. Make sure you lock the screen of your workplace. Pc when you step away from your desk home.

"The forenoon of the fourth of november last dr richard price in non-conforming minister of eminence preached at the dissenting meeting house of the old jewelry to his club or society. A very extraordinary miscellaneous sermon in which there are some good moral and religious sentiments and not. Ill expressed mixed up in a sort of porridge of various political opinions and reflections. But the revolution in france is the grand ingredient in the cauldron. I consider the address transmitted by the revolution society to the national assembly through earl stanhope as originating in the principles of the sermon and as a corollary from them it was moved by the preacher of that discourse it was passed by those who came wreaking from the effect of the sermon without any censure or qualification expressed or implied. If however any of the gentlemen concerned shall wish to separate the sermon from the resolution. They know how to acknowledge the one and to disavow the other. They may do it. I cannot for my part. I looked on that sermon as the public declaration of a man much connected with literary cabela's and intriguing philosophers with political theologians and theological politicians those at home and abroad. I know they set him up as a sort of oracle because with the best intentions in the world. He naturally philip sizes and chance. His prophetic song in exact unison with their designs. That sermon is in a strain. Which i believe has not been hurt in this kingdom in any of the pulpits which are tolerated or encouraged in it since the year. Sixteen forty eight when a predecessor of dr price. The reverend hugh peters made the vault of the king's own chapel at saint james ring with the honor and privilege of the saints who with the quote high praises of god in their mouths and a two edged sword in their hands were to execute judgment on the heathen and punishments upon the people to buy their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron unquote from psalm. One forty nine. Few harangues from the pulpit. Except in the days of your league in france or in the days of our solemn league and covenant in england have ever less of the spirit of moderation than this lecture in the old jewelry supposing however that something like moderation were visible in this political sermon yet politics and the pulpit are terms that have little agreement no sound ought to be heard in the church but the healing voice of christian charity the cause of civil liberty and civil government gains as little as that of religion by this confusion of duties those who quit their proper character to assume what does not belong to them are for the greater part ignorant. Both of the character they leave and of the character they assume wholly unacquainted with the world in which they are so fond of meddling an inexperienced in all its affairs on which they pronounce with so much confidence they have nothing politics but the passions they excite surely. The church is a place where one day's truce ought to be allowed to the dissensions and animosities of mankind. This pulpit style revived after so long. Discontinuance had to me the era of novelty in other novelty. Not wholly without danger. I do not charge this danger..

Noel hold could possibly be taken either on their season or their passions sufficient to maintain the ordinary correspondence life. It appears indeed to be generally acknowledged that with regard to truth and falsehood. There is something fixed. We find people in their disputes continually appealing to certain tests in standards which are allowed on all sides and are supposed to be established in our common nature but there is not the same obvious concurrence in any uniform or settled principles which relate to taste. It is even commonly supposed that this delicate an aerial faculty which seems too volatile to endure. Even the chains of a definition cannot be properly tried by any test nor regulated by any standard. There is so continual call for the exercise of the reasoning facility and it is so much strengthened by perpetual contention. That certain maxim's afraid reason seem to be tacitly settled amongst the most ignorant and the learned have improved on this rude science and reduce those maxims into a system if taste has not been so happily cultivated it was not that the subject was barren but that the laborers were few or negligent for to say the true. There are not saying interesting motives to impel us to fix the one which urges to ascertain the other and after all if men differ in their opinions concerning such matters their differences not attended with the same important consequences else.
