You're right. So it does raise in an interesting point here about session itself, which is you observe this now for two weeks. Can you give us a little insight into how sessions being handled is an efficient is an effective Are there things that have to be changed? I think they're learning there's ago because once again We know where global pandemic place him with a mass mandate who wears a mask doesn't wear masks.

Now, toe today, there's been no credible evidence that there's actually gonna be Something going on. There's been multiple pro trump Multiple pro open the state of protests, and none of them have been remotely anything other than polite and nice. Yeah, but Yeah, but this is the positions of the pro trump people. This is the antifa. Pro proud boys. Whatever group whatever crazy experience long do a group? No, not really. No, they all look alike. I'm not. I've never been a big joiner. I know you belong to several clubs that I can't get into. But I wanted to be never been a part of a group. Not really.

I want to wrap up the statehouse happening show by talking about our favorite part. Petition Todd Ricky to so he puts out your face. It's great. He puts out a tweet in support of President Trump. He gets by always stand with the president or something of that nature, Right? And he gets bombarded on both sides. And then he comes out and goes Well, It was just a test to see if I get taken down. Then he gets bombarded even more. We don't believe that was just a test, right? I mean, here you buy in that I will put it this way between that. And then The other thing that happened was was the National Association of Attorney General that put out a letter? Uh, kind of protest in going against the riots We saw Last week, there were 46 of them, who also in often letter time Ricky to did not say that no one did anything with the black lives matter. That's something which is Just not necessarily the whole story because individual attorney general's dead just the group don't do anything as a whole. Um, I'll put it this way. I'll lead Mr Rickey to speak for himself because this is the thing with Todd. Right. We always talk about there's good Todd and there's politician Todd. Secretary of state. Todd was good Todd. He did a lot of really nice things. But there's the politician he side of Todd. I feel like it's the angel and the devil on the shoulder, you know, always conflicted and the politician he taught us so squirrely. There's nothing wrong Tweeting out. You stand with President Trump. There's there's nothing wrong with that. And if you did it, and you meant it. Just own it like this score. Lydia. I was testing. It's like Nixon saying, I've got a plan for Vietnam, but I can't reveal it to you until after. I mean, does he realize or did he probably doesn't even care How ridiculous essence you stood? What?

Are you ready for them your homework if you will, or they wanted only abilities. Your boss one I heard in the in the debate that we had quote cut to the bone, I think was the was the phrase used by the governor in terms of no room for any cuts in government. Where did those fancy new masks that what he was wearing for his inauguration Come from? Did I pay for that? As a taxpayer? Know, do one of those really rich guys that propelled him back to the others. I'm not Grace Committee, and there's a whole set of really rich guys. He does the favors for it.

Well, some people David are saying that and some people are denying that they have a shots from above way above and some people are saying that in some people, aren't but I could have taken that out today. But I think you and others would have said we didn't get enough for what we'd be giving up. So know. You know, don't forget we're partners with a lot of countries on this. If you think about it with the sanctions, we have a whole big partnership with the United Nations and many countries including Russia, China and others. And then of course, South Korea is very important to this whole thing in Japan. I don't want to do something that is going to violate the trust that we built up we have a very strong partnership. So can you just give us a little more detailed? Did you get into the question of actually dismantling the young gun? Yes. Seem willing. Ultimately, totally all of that out. Sure. He just wants all the sanctions off, but he wants to sanctions for that. And as you know, there's plenty of left after that. And I just felt it wasn't good Mike, and I spent a long time negotiating and talking about it to ourselves and just I felt that that particular as you know, that facility while very big it wasn't enough to do what we were doing. So he was willing to do young gun. But you wanted more than that. I assume we had to have more than that. Yeah. We had to have more than other things that you haven't talked about that. You haven't written about that we found and we have to have that was done a long time ago. But the people did know about including we put out a second uranium enrichment plant exactly, and we brought many many points up that I think they were surprised that we know, but we had to do more than just the one level because if we did the one level, and we gave up all of that leverage has been taken a long time to build.

Take out that second day that I want to take off the sanctions so badly because I want that country to grow that country has got such potential, but they have to give up or we could have done that deal. Mike you want to speak to the only only David. There are also timing sequencing issues that were associated with that as well, which we didn't quite get across the finish line as well.

But because and this is some personal some business, but the the whole idea for me going to Pittsburgh is to be able to see the penguins host the sharks for those of you. Who know me, you know, that Joe Thornton is my favorite sharks player my favorite hockey player, actually. And I don't know how much longer he is going to be active in the NHL.

We get the picture. All right. Some of you responding to the Joe flacco move as well. So this trade that we believe we'll go down officially in a month. But sounds like the Broncos have been doing their due diligence. There's a pre existing relationship there between Vic Fangio and his offense coordinator. And Joe flacco from his earlier years in Baltimore. And some of you are lukewarm some of you like it some of you don't this one comes from Johnny. I believe the Broncos made an upgrade in getting flacco. He came from a defensive style team with a great running back. This is a great fit for everybody. Let's see another tweet comes from Steve he says, Amy we will miss Joe flacco in Baltimore. And he actually sent Flaco a message. You are the only ravens quarterback. My daughter has ever known. You wish her good luck in short video once and we will miss you in Baltimore. That's awesome. Those personal touches from professional athletes from famous athletes, very often. We'll we'll stick with a person forever. Amy says on Twitter I've been a Broncos fan since the day. I watched Elway execute the drive. So that's going back to the eighties. Bene- diehard ever since suffered through the years until Payton came along. And brought us back to glory. I truly hope Elway isn't making a mistake with flacco. And then she says she says, please help me understand. Well, I don't have all the answers. I do know that the pieces. There are pieces that are still missing that they need. Okay. So we we have to see what the Broncos do you at this point? They've got to to figure out the offensive line because they've got a bunch of pieces to either retiring or free agents, you got to figure out how to protect flacco because he's not a dual threat. He's not a scrambler. This is a guy who like Tom Brady needs to not get hit to be effective. And so if they can put protection in front of them, he can still be an effective passer. The last several years says completion percentage is above sixty four percent. Even navigating a lot of the changes to his receiving core in Baltimore and everything else. And so I I I don't know. I I wish I could tell you that it was gonna work out. Great, amy. But I I can't tell you that because I need to see how this works out. It's always franchise player. And we now you're gonna cut off now. Listen Calvin vote fine. Not a game, not a gang. Not a game. I was in the middle of a sentence. What? That was that was fantastic. Thank you. All right. I wish for you on this Valentine's Day, someone who loves you as much as the Oakland A's love Cuyler Murray as much as Alex Ovechkin loves the Stanley Cup as much as Pat Mahomes loves.

"She's been getting paid full, but they told us about eight months ago that at some point they're going to make a decision whether it will be a comment civility because my husband hasn't been improving or thirty percent. And we're thinking that probably next now they lose that in August, eight months nine months, so we're looking April possibly so. I'm thinking, you know. I stopped. My the debt snowball. Should I trust, you know, start putting money towards? Your household income hustling, Tom, I think we take home about ninety two hundred long. So it's about maybe one forty one fifth year. Okay. So now, the they're going to decide about the disability in April. Is that what you said? Yes, happened in August. Well, no in August of this year. He's been out for two years in August. They were coming to some sort of decision and the decision didn't happen till they said that probably would take eight months to year decision either way. Okay. So you're you're not gonna hear the earliest you're going to hear that they're going to do anything as April. The latest is somewhere around August. That's what you're saying. Yeah. But I'm thinking, it's probably going to be probably right around April, and what do you? Yeah. It's either permanent disability. It's going to be a Pearl. We'll an in August. They told us they make H and I month for a final thing told me much to a year. Well, I'm just roughing, but they pretty much that eight months. Oh, okay. Go tell you. They're going to tell you in April won't it be instantaneous. Once they decide they said pretty much, and it would either be a permanent seventy percent or possibly the minimum of if either seventy or thirty percent of of what he takes home now. So that last night and didn't make sense. Okay. If he gets put on permanent disability. They're going to pay him seventy percent of his pay that part. I got what's the other option? The other option is just thirty percent. Which is thirty percent of what you're gonna only pay him thirty percent. Oh, but it keeps working. No, this is this is not working either way. This is just the way they work the either accepted full permanent visibility or a mental disability like not on the job. So it's very strange after after this decisions. He's no longer on the force. Right. Okay. And he's either going to get thirty percent for partial or seventy percent for total Iraq. That's what it comes down to. Okay. I gotcha. So what's he planning to do when he's no longer on the force? Now. He's he's I mean, he he's mulling around ideas. He obviously says he's he's got a get a job. But you know, obviously can't be something where it's to physical. You know, they could do like a sedentary job or something that doesn't involve, you You know. know, heavy things. So what's it gonna do? I don't really know. I think it's pastime to decide. Yes. Because this is not not gonna happen. Getting ready to lose his job. Right. The only question is how much he's going to be paid by them. When he loses his job. So I think you saw his career aspirations between now and April know what he's going to do with that. And you keep plugging away because I think this is a good, man. I think he's going to make some money that's going to be a lot more than it used to make it the police department, and he's going to get the police department money, which he should for having been injured there.
