Outdoor Dining In San Diego
"Post pandemic things happening in the real estate world and probably one of the biggest things or at least one of the biggest changes that we've seen and we it's interesting because we have the weather for it but the dining regulations for outdoor dining regulations or being extended right. And i think that's a good thing. So they're gonna so. The city council has voted eight two eight zero to extend the street permits until july. Twenty second for all the outside dining so all the or excuse me twenty twenty two july thousand twenty two. So all of the Outside dining areas that you see set up. They're going to leave that setup for the next year a little over a year and i think it's great. I i agree. I mean i i've eaten indoors now Being vaccinated. I feel pretty comfortable with it but i also rather eat outside and if i had the choice typically i would choose outdoor dining at this point just because we are living in san diego and What why would you wanna be in a crowded indoor space. I mean even though. I know they're not full capacity inside. I mean it's typically it's nice weather sun doesn't go down till almost eight anyways it's It's easy to eat outside. And if they have good if they have nice options. I think that one thing that you have to think about what this outdoor dining is. These people have spent a lot of money. Maybe a little too much money building really nice dining experiences outdoors. So they're not like you're just eating on the side of the street you really are. You're in a really kind of an environment. That's conducive to the restaurant.

The shop passed on a new york times article about looking for climate solutions and this article was written by catrine einhorn. Essentially she reported that ocean bottom trawling for shrimp whiting. Cod and other fish emits as much carbon dioxide into the air as the entire globalization industry. Now this was based on a study published in the journal. Nature and it was pretty enlightening. About how trawling releases. Immense amounts of carbon from the ocean floor and that leads to more acidification of the water and that reduces the oceans capacity to absorb atmospheric carbon dioxide. You can check out the entire article on the new york times website look for climate solutions by katrina einhorn. There's another piece of good news. Out of molly s this month. The honolulu star advertiser reported that a trained response team was able to free young. Humpback whale from gear entangling. It's left pictorial flipper. They were able to free about fifty to one hundred feet of line from the flipper but not we're able to get the Entangled line out of its mouth. They are hoping that that will ultimately free itself. They haven't seen the whale since it was freed. Apparently it wasn't in great shape but at least now it has a chance. They recovered gears being analyzed to see if they can determine the origin now. The efforts were led by the hawaiian humpback whale national marine sanctuary in partnership with cardinal point captains k key koala project and ultimate whale-watch. Now i've had the opportunity to go out with ultimate whale-watch from lana. A couple of times was very happy to hear of their support.

The Problem With Track & Field World Records
"What goes into a world record. Obviously it has to be an incredible performance. Everything has to come together just right. They don't happen very often. When bob beamon broke the world's record in the long jump in nineteen sixty eight. See my previous episode about that. The conditions were perfect. He had the maximum allowable. Tailwind it was at a high altitude in mexico city. He had perfect form and he put together his best jump ever at just the right time since the advent of competitive athletics nine thousand nine hundred twelve. The international association of athletic federation's has been keeping world records in every event. There's been a progression of world records. As people of incrementally bested previous performances. Most world records are only broken by less than one percent. The greatest single increase in a world record was the aforementioned bob beamon jump which beat the previous world record by six point five percent so that is sort of the world record of world records. Each event has a very different progression in how frequent and how recent world records get set. And this gets into the real heart of what i wanna talk about. You should expect to see world records being broken at a slower and slower rate over time as humans. Approach the limit of human performance should become harder and harder to break records. Records will require more luck and more people who have the perfect physique in the very peak of their careers. But this isn't quite what happened in some events there hasn't been a new world record set in over thirty years. You're shulte set the world record in the men's discus in one thousand nine hundred eighty six at seventy four point zero eight meters to put that into perspective. The gold medalist in the two thousand nineteen world championships had a distance of sixty seven point. Five nine meters a full six point five meters or twenty one feet short of the world record the men's hammer throw was also said in nineteen eighty-six yuri set up of the soviet union through the hammer. Eighty six point seven meters. The two thousand nineteen world champion through it. Only eighty point five meters that six point two meters less than the world record. The oldest existing world record in track and field is the women's eight hundred meters. Your meal acrostic viola of czechoslovakia set a world's record finishing the eight hundred in one minute. Fifty three point two eight seconds. That's almost five seconds. Faster than the two thousand nineteen world champion. You might have noticed something that all these really old records have in common. They're all held by athletes from former communist countries. If you're thinking that these records might be tainted by performance enhancing drugs. You aren't alone.
One Year Later: Indicators On The Pandemic Economy
"One of the clearest lessons that we've learned about the pandemic economy is that there are huge gaps between the experiences of different groups of people and he is specific gap that we have been focusing on people who had low wage jobs before the pandemic have been much much more likely to lose their jobs. Then people with high wage jobs the data on this come from a new study by the new york fan and it is quite stark. Yeah by the end of last year there were actually more jobs for people who make high wages than there were before the pandemic this is people who make typically more than about eighty five thousand dollars a year so these include jobs like software developers engineers lawyers corporate executives and these jobs have completely returned not too many of them were ever even lost in the first place even in those terrible months right after the pandemic started now compare that to people who work jobs that typically pay less than thirty thousand dollars a year. Those jobs include things like food servers cashiers home health aides childcare workers and there were still fourteen percent fewer of those jobs at the end of last year that is a staggering gap. We haven't seen anything like this gap between highway jobs and low wage jobs in any of the recessions going back at least three decades and the gap exists now for a kind of obvious reason the unique nature of the pandemic recession. Yes a lot of these. low wage. Jobs are in restaurants bars hotels jobs acquiring a lot of direct human interaction and so a lot of these places had to close or their customers just stopped spending money on them and there is a reason that we're focusing so much on this disparity between low wage and high wage workers it feeds into the other disparities in the economy. A lot of those lower wage jobs are disproportionately done by young workers by workers without college degrees and by black and hispanic workers. And that's a big part of the reason. Why each of these groups also suffered a disproportionate share of the jobs. Lost our second group of indicators is about the economic policy lessons we've learned in the pandemic and here's the i almost impossible to believe indicator as terrible as the economy has been for the past year. There is almost no difference between the sheriff people who are in poverty now versus before the pandemic not only that but this year. The number of people in poverty is expected to fall by more than a third. So that by the end of twenty twenty one there will be more than thirteen million fewer people in poverty than there are right now. The main reason why the. Us government has now passed. Three huge aid and stimulus bill since the start of the pandemic to support the economy and the third bill. Which is president. Joe biden's american rescue plan was just passed by congress yesterday so of course the effects have not yet kicked in but we do know what was in that bill and most importantly we know what it has in common with the to bill signed by president. Donald trump last year which passed with bipartisan support in congress specifically when you look at the money that's being spent by the bills combined by far the biggest chunk of it is the cash that's being sent directly to individuals and families mainly in the form of stimulus checks and unemployment benefits for people who have lost their jobs and the combined scale of the bills is enormous about five trillion dollars in aid for the economy. That is at least three times as much the stimulus money. The government spent to fight the great recession of two thousand eight two thousand nine and just an offer a sense of how much extra money is reaching families because of these bills. Here's what a washington post analysis found. Take a family of four people two parents and two young kids and they live say in massachusetts now soon that one of the two parents lost their job at the beginning of the pandemic and still has not found work. That family in total will end up receiving more than fifty thousand dollars in support from the government that it would not have received without these three bills and the government is paying for all three of these bills by simply borrowing more money and for the most part politicians from both parties. Haven't really made a deal about this. And these are some big changes from how the government has responded to previous recessions like take the great recession of two thousand and eight. When there were extremely loud worries from politicians on both sides about the government barring lots of money to fight the downturn and also a much smaller share of the money back then was used for directly sending cash to people more of the money then we spent on other things like aid to state and local governments infrastructure projects and other investments. Yeah back then. The government was also still more reliant on the federal reserve to respond to recessions but the fed can't directly. Send money to people that they do not have to pay back. It can boost the economy by lending money to financial institutions and certain businesses it can also lower interest rates to convince people and businesses to borrow more money and by the way the fed was still a big part of responding to the covid recession but the us government by using its unique power to send cash directly to people cash. That they don't have to pay back was willing to accept a much bigger role this time. Does this mean that as the economy reopened this year it will bounce back way faster than it did after the two thousand eight recession when the recovery was sluggish until years. We'll find out. Most economists expect it will. They are forecasting that this year the us economy will grow at its fastest pace since nineteen eighty three. And if they're right than the. Us government operating under two different presidents from opposing parties. May well have established a new way to respond to the terrible recessions of the future.
House Nears Vote to Pass $1.9 Trillion Covid-19 Aid Bill
"We begin in washington where the house is expected to pass the one point nine trillion dollar co-pay nineteen relief bill as soon as today. If passed the bill would then go to the white house. President biden signature. The package includes three hundred dollars in weekly unemployment benefits through september six as well as sending fourteen hundred dollar direct payments to many americans. Progress on the stimulus. Package may be one of the reasons. We've been noticing. Bond yields inching upward on monday. The ten year yield briefly rose as high as one point six one percent in the morning. Let's get some further insight with wsj markets columnist. Mike byrd in hong kong. Glad you're here mike. Good morning. Mock how does this all relate to fiscal policy and a stimulus that were expecting to be passed this week. Fiscal policy and the stimulus program is pretty central to this. So it's a big point of debate. Among economists and analysts and investors about what precisely the impact of these measures will be. It's a very large stimulus relative to what was passed immediately after the financial crisis in two thousand. Eight two thousand nine. Some people think it will overheat the economy for example that you'll see significant inflation after that some people very much disagree with that move. They think there's enough slack in the us economy right now to accommodate the stimulus an obviously depending on whose correct that. He's close to correct. That will have a big impact on asset prices as well and mike how are the rising yields viewed by the fat. And how can it impact future decision making. Well i think this is. The other component is adding a lot to the uncertainty here so the fed has framed changed. Its framework slightly. It's tweaked its framework towards called average inflation targeting which suggests that it's going to have a little bit more leeway in terms of not hiking interest rates. Alsacien flation approaching. They're allowed to be a little bit more balanced little bit more patient with that but markets on quite used to this framework yet. They don't really know how patient the fed will be some people. Don't trust that if the floods seed feds. He's inflation coming though really polls and not hike. Interest rates so the uncertainty on the fiscal side and the uncertainty on the monetary side is. What's contributing lot of this. Sort of volatility to the uncertainty that investors have

Wet Notes for 2-28-21
"This is wet notes on scuba shaq radio for sunday february twenty eighth two thousand and twenty one. Well i up today. I'm going to do an update on dry suit talq now ever since i've owned a dry suit i've been using those little pouches of talk to dust my wrist seals and neck seals. And that makes it easier to put on especially if it gets a little humid. Well we used to get these little pouches from magnet who then became gear aid when we could no longer get them from juried. We switched to getting them from diving unlimited international or dui. Recently we ran low on these talca pouches. Wanted to order some more. But do you. I stopped producing those talk pouches. I guess i'm guessing near some concern around. The safety of talk i noticed has been in news over recent years. So donna reached out to peak from dui and he suggested cornstarch to dust are seals. Make sure you do it every time now. That sounds a little strange to me. But it looks like people are using it in place of the talq. We'll give it a try. And i'll let you know how goes cornstarch. It's not just for cooking next up. Is things start opening up and we travel outside the country. We're going to need to get tested for in nineteen before we can come back well. Resorts are out there. And they're starting to accommodate their customers and making it easier to get tested. So for example. I just saw where enroll roett to resorts. The turquoise bay dive resort and the mayan princess beach dive resort are offering onsite cova testing on thursdays and fridays. And then what happens. Is you'll get electronic. Results are available in three hours. And then you'll have a hard copy the next day now you still have to pay for it in a costs about fifty bucks. Then i also check the cocoa view site down there and roett tan and it looks like they are also offering onsite testing but their prices coming in at eighty five dollars so it looks like if you're going to travel to row attend you'll find it easier to get tested for corona virus and get back home as long as you test negative but i think more and more of these dive operators out there are going to provide that cova testing or options for people so that you can go travel and then make it easier for you to get back home. Also last i think a couple of weeks ago. The president of the united states signed executive order. One three nine eight and with that executive order it mandated. That masks are to be worn on all public maritime vessels including ferries. What does that mean for dive boats. Well deana did. Some research and found out that this mandate includes commercial vessels used for dive charters and dive related activities. You'll need to be masked up upon boarding disembarking and the duration of travel. Obviously this can only apply to us. Operators i think this makes sense and i'm sure common sense will prevail given our unique circumstances when we go diving way back in the beginning of two thousand twenty i did a segment on dive travel insurance then in mid two thousand and twenty. I noticed the divers alert network. Dan their travel insurance was not available on their website is back now. However there was a short article on dive newswire that indicated that there are qualified cove in nineteen related cancellation and interruptions covered. There's a lot of detail on their website. You can read through. Essentially they cover prepaid travel arrangements. If you your host at your destination you traveling companion or family member test positive for covid. Nineteen there's also levels of coverage while traveling but you need to do your research. The good news however is that the dan travel insurance is back and it looks like they are helping to try and address the corona virus issues. It's always a good day when i go out to the mailbox and that the latest issue of the journal of diving history has arrived. That happened earlier this week. The cover of the first quarter two thousand twenty one magazine features to five women who made up the team of tech tight to mission six dash fifty. Which was america's first off female saturation team. The five women included peggy lucas. An hurley hotline renata lynch true elena schmidt and sylvia earle the journal of diving history. Formerly historical. diver magazine is the official magazine of the historical diving society. Usa and is part of your membership. I can't wait to dive into all the articles i saw. The other day that there's been a an oil spill off the coast of israel and lebanon and it's impacting over one hundred miles of coastline. Now what's a little disconcerting about this is that they don't know where this is coming from this washing up on the beaches. It's the seems like there's some sort of gag order on the release of information. I'm just not sure why there was. Also a thin whale washed up on the beach apparently with oil in its loans. They say this is undoing. Much of the progress made over the last thirty years. Let's hope they figure out where this is coming from or where it came from. And if they're able to minimize the impacts and finally here's some really big news in the scuba industry especially related to scuba tanks.

"Ninety nine and the cars of the risk gradual change during his time in charge but what made a typical Leblanc tour balance was the key word. No state should be three long. The climb shouldn't be too hard. I was blamed for making it to light at times but it was not because he had more claims and harder ones would be more exciting. I wanted all types of writers to be able to be in contention for victory. Not only the time-trial specialists not only in the climbers but if possible all-rounders Anders as well I lifted the idea from previous director Jack they really admired Sean Kelly that should be possible for a writer like Kelly to win the Tour de France. It didn't happen that I could see what he was pointing at. That's why I tried to restore store balance between the fought stages the mind sages and the time trials Lebron's I tours masterpiece and one of the most exciting tools ever was it luck or costs or the interest there was an element of lock because from the very star audit went kind of crazy with Winston which turned the two from the start into pursuit for reigning champion Delgado with Fenian Lemond which led to an exciting race the leading protagonists were then phenyle looked like he was going to win the through until the last day LEMONDE lemonde Delgado and the fight between London female made the very very exciting both were demark creatures and there was a lot at stake. The tour ended with the time trial. Where did the idea come from? It was not my idea. The course have I've been designed by my predecessor who was heavy Louis as a journalist early. Keep it they claim. I didn't think it was such a great idea. I still believe that the day before lost the DC should be decided on the Gaza that sage. We're usually closer to three or four minutes than a handful influ seconds we find ourselves in a very bizarre unprecedented unsurprising situation but as a result the idea of a final time-trial turned out to be a stroke of genius he was not something you Leblond repeated. Why not luck does not strike strike every year? The aim was always to maintain the suspense until the last few days but so many tourists were finished like a week or sometimes two weeks before the finish in Paris. There were very few chances to see the same situation happen again. The final all day when I finally one was unbelievable shock unbelievable I was in the car behind female and we had the intermediate times it was a small distance twenty eight kilometers and every three or five kilometers. We had the gaps amount to stood quickly weekly.

I mean you know quite so we so we couldn't get into into the scourge tower actually so and back to an to to whereas I sat in the first place and as I was going back to my sita I I realized Greg Lemond was sitting by himself and there was nobody sitting next to him for a very simple reason. I don't know how many guys or left and his team but I mean he was not the best of teams will most of his teammates Mesa the given up at state so so so I said well I said the Brechin I can I sit with you sure sure he was actually very very sick very happy to have someone to talk to and so we started talking being unwell he started talking. You know what is like when he starts. It's very specific to stop in and and I know that he said the opposite the later on that did the default he would win thirty could win and but I didn't have this that that impression schnatter on the day before he really talked at length about his hunting accident about the problems in health problems he had difficult and been to come back out surprise was by you know getting so far on to not only do right in the tour again but getting to Paris and get into person in in second place he looks so you know yes so delighted so more than relieves liking again like resurrected in a way and and <hes> so <hes> yeah it was very very friendly talk well you can imagine the next day when when he won <hes> you know winding kind of winding back to tape at not recording was a little bit strange range because ahead to reconstruct I I really had exclusive greg non interview which I which the only way could use it and it could make what was to try to through June to remind everywhere Lee said and to try to two two two two two without any knows you can do it from time to time really and I really did it and use it like like like <hes> you know interview peace with <hes> you know with quotes and everything I think that's the fond memories of that moment.

I didn't have any any clue I didn't know about writing so it was exciting to find out that I took uh of almost a mid autumn ended up yeah seconds you win the tour by seconds the closest ever margin in my opinion most dramatic and exciting tour not just because of the final David because the way the Jersey went one way or the for sure you both had good days and both bad days and crucially they were on different days. That's what made it so exciting wasn't it. No I think that time-trial was the bonus at the end. I mean obviously because people people thought going to win it three days before before hitting on takes it back. He thinks he's GonNa win. Win It and that's about as good as you get from racing perspective it is true. It's very rare. I have to say like three tour but the two dude I wonder against really really tough competitors and it's not the same when nineteen ninety this a cakewalk literally had three matures like that that competition that would have been a totally different experience for me but I've always had it where these challenge to my Max and that's what made that tourist particular eighty six eight nine it was it was wasn't just a cakewalk.

We live in Malone and my dad's snuck over and saw Greg at the hotel he took Jeff with him and took a cab over to Greg Hotel and then he came back and he said to me I went and saw him and he looks really good. I think he's going to win this thing he was so sure and Greg told them and and I'm like Oh my God dad you went over to the hotel like I wouldn't even have called him this morning. Why just wanted to see him but it's even it's bittersweet thinking about how how much made now that my dad's gone to think much? He loved loved Greg and all the pleasure we got so we are you confident that day then that morning oh yeah I mean it's not wasn't wishful thinking because I never did any test on that on the bars before the tour but I'd be opinion not at my primary Jiro by a minute twenty one seconds over fifty something KS so I started working backwards off that and that was without without without just working that back and I go. I'm within seconds no no handlebar and going. I don't know what it was ten fifteen seconds I had no clue and so I felt with without I'd be very close the probably not as close with without but the interesting thing could. Would probably made it more time than I would have using those bars but when I did do tunnel test I don't have to three years later with Roger Leget. I'd only made up about interestingly. I made depends on how they do do the test and we we figured eight to twelve seconds with the advantage of the bars by lost almost equally amount from the helmet. The Jiro Helmet was so big so what looked very dynamic finance head with flopping faster than so oh it's but all those things play into it but honestly the day before my legs were great and but it wasn't like I said I hope I can win acting to some calculations on the time trial in jared Italian and the amount of time and I think that I think the time trial was longer and harder to make up time because it was actually was six hundred is a big descent being very fast hard to make up time on and a flat word semi downhill time-trial but that's why I think it was even closer than I thought because I think it was dead flat time trump give the same. I was in better shape benefiting the Jiro. It had been a bigger difference difference dead dead flat time-trial. I think it would have been more than eight seconds so when you cross the line what did he knows because still out in the roads the last man on the road behind anything I mean I just you know I never never WanNa hear Anne updates and make difference to me because you're all out doesn't matter so when I got done I just was like I knew I had a good ride. I mean I thought I had a really kind of finish. I could've run another fifteen ks at that pace so I wished I would've pushed even harder but it wasn't until John Trump alleviate who was standing next to me. He was trying to give me the countdown. He's someone told me a one so it's kind confusing. It was just trying to recover and win the stage or did I win the race. You didn't understand but also had no clue. I didn't know the drama of for years I went to bike shops. Where are they played the eighty on tour which is a voiceover of Phil Liggett three seconds?

It was just always a day by day literally. I didn't know if I was GONNA make the next day I have two and a half years. The truly no positive results in terms of even psychologically had no confidence so each time I made it through got a little bit better a little bit veteran and even even if I did well I still I don't I never felt the same as I didn't eighty six. I was much stronger eighty six and so when I went through dwells and then Villard land had another if that day I just realized that now I need to make sure we covered by the time trial but the next one I think the big shock was the day after that village to lend my legs.

Greg Log on has four back with the stage wait but of course the fifty seconds rebate intact for the weekend for dollar and will be happy with the road with though and vigil will be happy to finish second and kept his lead overall. It's really great that day and with a nice easier the next day they were as freshest when I started on Sunday so but but I was happy I would just have to be there. Every day was a bonus for me and so that's what made winning in eighty nine so special because you know telling you from eighty seven on it was just a nightmare and I'd say the last two years of pro equal that type of nightmare but go go from pretty low wanting to quit or thinking you can't do it and Wendy Niche pretty good high really. What was that like for you Kathy because obviously in eighty six you had this sensor Greg could win the tour for the first time eighty-nine? He's trying to repeat something after those dark two years we used thinking in certain way. Why are we risking all why we why are we back putting ourselves through this again? Just taking day-by-day enjoying the fact that Greg was racing the top level again. I I just remember the first the first night that he won the time trial. I think we talked on the phone till two in the morning and then he still couldn't sleep and he called me again before four and and I kept saying like you gotta go to bed we were so excited because only two months before that it was just an an absolute nightmare in our family and yeah it was is almost like the work if I didn't I obviously I think psychological stresses stresses like it could be doesn't matter and there's no doubt the stress was incredible that I put myself basically because I'm trying to judge every day raced in okay. I'm not coming back not coming back and then I think really kind of breaking down took some of the stress off because I remember after when the time probably said well you know maybe I can finish and then in our day or two after you went through some of the mountains like maybe I could even get top ten and then I still remember. I gotten a little argument with my dad the day before the final time trial because my dad said I think he's GonNa win this and I said Oh come on like let's not be so greedy..

A policeman stopped him going into the area river for the riders thinking that he was just an amateur writer on a bike who turned up to watch the stage and so he set off two minutes forty late he lost another fourteen seconds to Eric Brooking who's the prologue winner and and was nearly three minutes down on everyone the end of a short prologue and the tour more or less lost in the first handful of minutes really. I'm the following afternoon. He got dropped by his team in the team time-trial really it couldn't have been a worse start for Delgado feel. It's the real test today and I really believe that Greg is not sure what to expect to himself. Returned to the top has been so good sure he's building up his muscles annely stammer again by the way real talent. You never does go very far away. Loss was kind of back from not to believe in but it being. Not since eighty four hundred dollars struggling struggling a little bit so he was some kind of you know it's was kind of return to form for for him so we didn't know what to expect precisely for Greg Lemond little even less it we expect Greg Lemond to perform delivery wouldn't because <hes> you know it did not been writing for years. I mean it. Come back a little bit before the tool that I mean he was in a week team. Nobody dared you know sites. At the start Greg Lemond Manga favorite so first day they'll get almost out of contention and if you look at the beginning of the nineteen thousand nine that that was there was the first inaugural we thought would be interesting as Delgado chasing for las time but once again to chase and very greatly we so this great rivalry emerged between the between him and the moment and one was even more exciting about it was of course the fact that they were all both products of what what was the team sky of the time they did the gamma inciting factory you know <hes> discovered young talents and not-so-young term in the guy with one to two with Tucson imp we and then the Narino a number of times were discovered Lafayette with the strongest team of the time also Oh lured <hes> ragland to come into a French team from the states I mean so they were they were kind of made in say morbid also very different Carter's so I mean the the rivaling term of the way to road and the and the end tempers were very different characters that the personas they the embodied were was absolutely fascinating sal about five or six days into a race that was a long time trial by today's standards seventy three kilometers from Dina to ran in Brittany and Greg Lemond used the <hes> triathlons style time-trial boss which well they'd been used by the seven eleven team earlier in the year in the tour to trump in America Erica.

"Two eight two two eight eight two here is a you know, I was talking to vice president of an all of the video and audio soundbites of Pelosi and Hillary and Schumer and Obama advocating for a wall promising to spend money for a wall as far back as two thousand five two thousand nine here's a little montage. I mean, they sound bites are much longer than this. But we've put together just in twenty one seconds. I want you to hear this Chuck Schumer from two thousand nine Hillary Clinton two thousand fifteen Barack Obama from two thousand five. Number twenty six. Illegal immigration is wrong. Plain and simple. I voted numerous times when I was a Senator to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in. We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected undocumented unchecked. Okay. So I guess it's the talk back that's not working all right here. Played again. I want people to get this this again since we had some choppiness there Chuck Schumer from two thousand nine Hillary Clinton from two thousand fifteen and Obama from two thousand five these are all Democrats two thousand nine Obama's president two thousand five George W Bush's president two thousand fifteen Obama is president. They're all for a wall. They're all for paying for a wall. They all announce why we need a wall. Listen, again, illegal immigration is. Wrong. Plain and simple. I voted numerous times when I was a Senator to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in. We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected undocumented unchecked. Okay. So what's new what's different? What's changed, by the way, the money that was on the table to build a barrier? A wall of whatever back when these three were discussing this at one time got up this high as I think fifty six billion dollars. Now, Trump is talking about five point one billion. And you wanna talk about who's playing politics here. It's these people this is simply not going to happen because Donald Trump. Would benefit from it. Remember, this is about denying Trump reelection twenty twenty it's about getting Trump out of office before twenty twenty. It is pure politics. Pure one hundred percent politics. These people are the biggest blatant. You will not find greater examples of apocryphal business. Have take a brief timeout back with more right after this..
