Extreme Athlete Tom Jones Is Running 76 Marathons for a Cause
"I'm not making this up. He's my guest right now. Tom Jones, welcome to the Erik metaxas show. Hey Eric, thanks for having me on. Look, I want to ask you so many questions. First of all, the principal reason I'm having you on is because you are going to be doing something fairly shortly along the lines you just described. What is this thing that you're going to be doing soon? Actually, I'm almost right in the middle of it. I've run 30 back to back marathons as we speak in the middle of it now. Yes, yes, we left April 19th from montevallo, Alabama, and I've been running a marathon a day every day since then, including today. A marathon a day, okay, that's not something I've ever done, even for a single day. So what you're doing right now, it's affiliated with united we pledge. What is united we pledge? Because I know your goal is to draw awareness to the constitution to American freedom. What is united we pledge? The united we pledge is a nonprofit organization and what they're doing is they're building a very special and magical place called the American village. And the American village is a place that has recreations exact replica recreations of buildings that were instrumental in the constitution and the Revolutionary War. And they also have people that play the parts of people that were instrumental in that time, like George Washington, Ben Franklin, Paul Revere, Paul Revere's wife, men and women, they have colonial soldiers. And what they do is they bring in families and in particular kids, and they let them step onto the stage of American history and become part of the story. So it's a very, very impactful experience as far as history goes.
"erik" Discussed on NASCAR America
"Track, but I'm picking Ryan Blaney to take the monster mile this weekend. Very good. I think that's a good pick. He's always very strong at Dover, so I think that's going to be a big question mark is, who's going to be good? I can make an argument AJ and Parker like, I don't know who's going to be good this weekend because this new car is still on so many curveballs like what's going to happen. I have no clue what's going to happen this weekend. Yeah, I agree. I mean, this is probably the toughest challenge that the next gen car is going to have, at least up to date. Maybe all year, because the loads that you have when you drop down into the corner, the loads that you feel through the race car, these cars are stiff, they balance the loads that are going to be through these bigger tires through all the suspension pieces. I don't think we know really what to expect. So, you know, Parker, you all, your fantasy team, you've already got that out. Yeah, so who's going to win this weekend, Parker? Well, I'm sure if I'm ready to make that pick, but I'll tell you who's not on my phrase he team. It's AJ almond. That guy's doing two races on the weekend. He told me he's got to meet her. Jim twice. I'm not feeling good about you walking in that ready for that Cup race. Not feeling that speed there. I think, though, when you look at it, it is a ton of unknowns. This place, you know, how is the tire going to lay rubber on the track this weekend is a huge unknown to me after what we've seen out of this car where it has laid a ton of rubber at some places. And then we had Martin solar, it did basically none. I think that's going to be really interesting to see. You mentioned the test for this car durability wise. That's going to be a tough thing to figure out. So I think this is a really tough race. Erik Jones mentioned the possibility of maybe shifting who knows. There's so many unknowns. I think I look at guys, maybe that just have been successful at Dover in the past and maybe Kevin Harvick, this is a weekend that he could be looking at one very strong for the four car. So that's what I'll keep my on and on when we get to practice and qualifying. All right, I'm putting you down for Kevin Harvick. Because you're doing double races, does that mean double workouts this week? I did do the sim yesterday and as I said to Eric Jones, I asked my engineers, I was like, is this what it's actually going to feel like? Because I was kind of worn out in the sim, I'm like, oh my goodness. I'm going to have to start doing double gym days leading up to it. Then I realized, I'm pretty old, and I'm that could wear me out a little too much for the race. So I decided not to do the double gym day. I went Jim range. Oh, that counts. And then TV show. This is the hardest part down pat. Yeah. We got to get that in. AJ's life, right? Parker. All right, he went with Kevin Harvick, who you got. Oh, I'm picking right now. I'm going to go Christopher Bell. Really? Because, you know, this is a racetrack. We're as we talked about. We don't know what these cars are going to do, but I think you're going to have to start dancing them around a little bit, especially if you get some rubber laid down. Cars are going to be sliding around. Christopher Bell. Chase Elliott, for me, we'll see you back here Monday or recapped over, see you then..

Athletic Performance Coach Erik Huddleston On Managing Squatting and Squat Training
"We could start there so someone who can't get down. Get low on the court. They have a problem with that. I know titles but on the show talking about squatting in an elevator. I think to me. That's the easiest way i just see. That is the ability to manage the pelvic floor. But i'd like to get it from the feet up to and and like the early stance amid stance. So could you maybe kick it off by sharing a little bit about just getting into low position. Level changes what that means from. I mean yes squatting but also like the the stance the phases a stance and the feet. Right yeah so from from squatting standpoint start there is like i sure that everybody almost everybody is listening to. This has has recognized or current before with the people that they work with that. You know there is this kind of forward orientation that a lot of people have so. We're being driven forward from behind Kind of like which look at when you look at gate with that is like a constant falling catching yourself as you go forward. That's necessary for certain things will get later but I think the most important thing to recognize. I is that you know if you exaggerate this. If anybody listening stands up and just like leans forward like for your tibia ghettos and so as you get handed this this more anterior translation of your tibia. Those are movements that are going to be as long as the heels on the ground. those are movements towards middle potion. so i'm as soon as the cal- kenya's breaks your into later phase of propulsion But if tibia isn't isn't vertical on starts to break forward you're moving towards the middle worship propulsion and. That's more of an ira bias general. So let's say like someone comes and they're squatting in noticing a ton of like horizontal pelvic displacement so their hips are going back there chested dumping ford. It looks very much like what she would want. If you're going to have them do a trap or dead lift if they're already biased towards that middle point ocean they're going to continue to follow this to be forward and so they're going to be unable to to have any type of vertical displacement of their elvis down in a squat That's there already in heaven i. Ira bias there. So they're going to follow that forward. Because i are doesn't allow for a lot of what we consider like. General movement qualities suid variation in movement. irs compression i are. Is you know force production. It's not necessarily not necessarily like fluidity of movement or you know. Look people would consider mobility

"erik" Discussed on What Bitcoin Did
"Custodian risk. I thought that was safer for me as an operator but also just like the right way to do something. That was built on crypto. If you if you collect everyone's assets under stadium then you're going to end up looking not too different from banks in centralized brokers and so after period of time you then had to obviously reveal. It was you. Did you have to do that now. i just did. I realize it's it's really fucking hard to be see. Donna's if you're well just flat out full stop but but if you're going to have like phone calls with someone suddenly need to disguise your voice because people knew me from interviews in bitcoin documentaries and i started having to have business calls where i couldn't speak race. There's actually a couple of times. When i have my co-founder do the call under my name. Because i didn't know what to do about my voice just like practical problems. like that. so it just became more and more noxious. And i realized like all right whatever. We'll just a be myself again and will for what was that like Coming out. Because i i guess. People knew us every voorhees the bitcoin guy and then you became erik voorhees. The coin is well which has never. Really s- yeah. Yeah well certainly ever. Since then a lot of the decline maximalist types have not liked me. The first the first one. This is interesting. The first one who really got angry with me was roger beer. I can't really yeah. Roger beer was an investor in shape shifts and she was not happy that it was supporting these other coins so he was investor in it. Because i were friends and he wanted to support me but he. He was uncomfortable with investing in a project that supported all coins. So the irony of that certainly unvieled itself overtime interesting. Funny you're there's also there's also the people that he did before institution ice for using the blockchain's transactions cheap shift was built with very similar model. No account in all the transactions happen on gene and a lot of people do not like that because they think it's an inefficient use of of how of how watching supposed to work so those people piled on and certainly didn't like it and then of course there's a theory launched a metal. Got big and tokens became everywhere Certainly the vitriol expanded. You just had a history of basically pissing people off. Yeah well. I'm i'm here to destroy bitcoin. So that was the way to do it right. Use it a lot of mining sees and hopefully if i do that enough to claps cake can you talk anything about the kyc pressure that came down to you.

"Me ask you this. What do we want to happen. Because i want him to a different team where he is. I would be happy for him if i think he deserves to win another one. I do think that for the history of the game. I think it's important that a guy like that wins because of the talented. I think you should rise above all these other people who have won. I think he's a at least two super bowl singular town champion to me. I put him in the same category if not a better arm. Strength than paid men k. I think ui manning. Winning is insane and bizarre. Weird and just. That's the anomaly. But i think all the guys who have to all guys who have multiple. He's in that category. I think he's as good as that. Well what. I'm saying that same win. The super bowl this year the dan what now then now in order you know what i'm saying you come back you delia. Course you you you guys go. Hey let me work that we worked it out.

It's easy to be great because the ones that are great. I vote one of the things we have to remember about. All of these professional athletes is at a certain point in their life and their career. They were better than everyone around the best their neighborhood has ever seen really get to college and in a truck there there around more peers right but they still shine above a lot of people tonight and they get to the pros and getting around a guy like lebron james.

I honestly tell you when we follow him on the stage very difficult to follow hard to follow. Auto man was just fun to watch. He's fun to watch. So so vegas. Is it a fun performing arts. I've heard good been nebraska. Before i don't even know him because i'm just here. I'm a little nervous about vegas because you just here like i have so many people. I know that they've gone to vegas. And we got cova. Exactly like hey. You're supposed to win it the slot machine. I don't know so. I don't know how it's going to be. I just feel like. I'm going to be like mobile mode of just like go. Do your show and go back to my room. Yes yeah you gotta you gotta eat like other stuff so masturbate yourself a lot. It is a lot. But if you're in vegas goes to go all right Let's get a quick. It's i don't know if you saw did you see kyrie. Trashes own shoes. I don't know if you read about that now. So he's got aids are coming out by the way one through seven are amazing. Those shoes for my kid. They're good shoes. I didn't know that i like them. They're good shoes but he's got signed in two thousand with nike ten million dollars a year to be a huge game and he's complaining about he's quoted on instagram. Saying i'd nothing to do with the design of these. These are trash. these are trash in. my opinion. can't say can you say that. Even if you feel that you can't say well. I mean i guess he thinks he. Can you wanna stand by the product. I mean they are the less there saying we're paying you to just be a face and not have any input or anything we're just paying you to be like. Do you think he was like a. I want to be involved in like we got this. And then i think there's some kind of rift. I think that. I don't think he's a dumb guy to there. Might be another company. That's like come to us twenty and we'll give you all the input of visas. So here's his like this is him his way of trying to get out. You know like like heart did in. Yeah houston downs. Burn it down. He's got plenty of money doesn't care so funny. We live in the age of this. The that might be the that might be the the take so the it. Obviously aaron rodgers joined. The packers joined the backup but like his opening press conference. Just ceo gave them the fire. Right and i to me. I was like i'm here for it. Because what did he do. He put all the players who they apparently did wrong. We're in hollywood. We know when someone tries to make a deal with you. When they're making a deal with you for your second season of workaholics. Whatever was you know that they will probably were like low. Ball is the way it's going to go in and we're not going to treat them with respect he deserves. That's the way everybody gets treated. And he was like. I am not going to stand for and anybody who's ever been treated poorly by their boss. Undervalued watched aaron rodgers and was like abu ali i with ownership and management. You're not you know he's standing up. He basically let them know wasn't about the money he could've taken that deal to make him the highest paid player and he was like language money. i'm making. He's like at this point. Like i want to respect. And i want these people to be treated. Well he because he would wait. Why aaron rodgers. Who in my opinion is as good if not better quarterback tom brady. Why was he not winning. Multiple super bowls. Well because things on the field weren't happening guys in the locker room that he wanted with their. We're not there anymore. Because they let him go. Yeah he said look. There's a guy like charles woodson. He's not locking. i wanted. They're like yeah. Jordy nelson you the jordy nelson jordy nelson now randy moss. At least saying hey. Can you listen to my input right. Can i just give you some opinions. Can i help recruit recruit and their attitude was like. It's it's old mentality in that in that moment who you can listen to is. The guy comes on the gm does like we take errands of input. And you're like no you don't because if you did he wouldn't be coming out and saying this or happened but you know you're talking about the problem with the problem with people that run that organization is entitled because one. They're not the owners. The sketch just a he's just they'll just runs runs it. So he doesn't have the investment like jerry. Jones has the investment in. This is my team right. This is my xbox as a billionaire. And i'm gonna do it like this. This is a guy that's trying to run it like it's You know he's he's resentful because he'll never make as much money as he has to pay. He's like a manager to mcdonald's even worse though he's like a manager at mcdonalds that has to pay the workers worker seventy five times more money. Imagine how that must make especially when you're sitting there going you know because the problem in the past two years green bay yarbrough. We could have won the super bowl. We got you in a good position. You know what i mean. And then the erogenous part is like okay. Switched me out with Know somebody one of these other quarterbacks to see if you had the same success jordan lump yeah. Good luck with that guy with that. So it's so they're having this power struggle in the air marches. Basically he wants to play. He wants to play. He wants to be with his team. He knows he has a good shot. That's needed to let everybody know he just put them on blast. Light your loved it. I was so there for and he basically let them know why going to be going through this shit again next year or two. So i don't wanna be here. I feel like you should be able to have those types of press conferences about like your husbands or wives. Should it be like like be able to lay everything out sama. Stay in this marriage. But i gotta talk about your mom for a second this. I don't like. I don't like i saw marcus spears on. Espn i take the best thing about. It was like he went in told his wife. I'm leaving you when the kids graduate. That's right it that's right. He'll be basically what just happened. He came in there and was just like romantic comedy where they find each other again. But i mean so you know. I thought that was like in like total romantic comedy. Aaron rodgers could have a head injury where he forgets everything he said but falls. But what let.

I mean i. I don't know. I just think that we'll certainly for baseball and saw like softball. It should be the bigger thing but base- baseball. Us team just got all the sports that us should have dominated in and dumb. I mean dominated. Well i don't think that the us baseball team should dominate because it's not mlb players. Yeah players and all the best players in the from the united states sport anymore. it's You know it's a you know people who arabian sports. They come from other places and they come here and they because there because they don't they don't promote the sport to the best athletes in the country will the best. What's crazy the best baseball player right now on. The planet is from japan. Shohei ohtani the best basketball player right. Now who can say. I'm the best and grass is from greece. Booed by way of nigeria. I mean it's amazing it. These are two sports that i think are woven in the fabric of the united states and played on the highest level in the united states and the two best players are from elsewhere and i would argue the other. Most at one of the most exciting players in the nba is luca danni. So you know. I mean that's a dude. Who is they're never gonna win with him because he's a. He's been groomed to be a diva since he was eleven years old. I think he's gotta go to the knicks. He's he's gotta go someplace with a strong per coach coach personality. That says this is your role. This is how we win here. This is your role or you want to be. you know. 'cause he's just he's going down that russell russ book Way right now so. I've watched a lot. He does a better shot. But i've watched a lot of their games. Because i'm a fan of trey burke and i want him to succeed and i know he's he doesn't necessarily have an. I like hardaway. We're michigan guys. We like to see those guys succeed. And yes there are with the mavericks. Watch him against the clippers. This year they were up there up. Three one three one but then donncha. He has a lot gives them a lot of empty possessions. Down the stretch shots where you're like. Hey you're messing with the ball and there's only three seconds left and now you're gonna take an off balance shot and maybe one out of three times. It goes in but to other possessions. You down by six. They come down and shoot tooth raises a tie game. You gotta have down as of game titans in the fourth quarter. You gotta have a plan to get easy buckets fouls or easy buckets. That's how you guys. Are you know they got a big egos. They're making a lot of money. They have a lot of control empower organization. Everything's based off ticket sales. And you know it's like it's like it's rare. It's rare when you find that thing. That kind of player that is about you know playing the game right and winning. I mean you know that's why y- honest is a fascinating digital and and maybe it came from the fact that when i got to the league he was eighty. Nine one ninety. He is now six eleven to forty five so he has grown literally grown and matured mentally. And he's become that franchise dude. It's like you watch. That guy celebrate what he was celebrating. I'm mike this guy appreciates every moment. I really hope that. I think he's still has room for improvement. Oh yeah oh yeah. Because he's still. I think that i like. He's listening to the chatter. And you know. I i feel like he wanna feel like i'm better than kevin durant. Yeah i want him to feel like that. That's right and prove it. With the research different players are different but the way he feels like he can be better than durant goes back to what i was saying before because in his bag of tricks is the i'm gonna back up and then i'm gonna bum rush. You come at you remember when they were playing against each other like like taranto rant. Up can't guard him. He's going to take over understand why he wasn't guarding him. I know you know your big strong fast like that was mistake there. I didn't understand that. In terms of the coaches great finals this this nba finals now general. The plastic general. What this finals was. It was a great final defensive. Plays near that came out of nowhere. You had just incorrect. But i came back into the every game came down to the wire. But i can't help but just you always gonna think anthony davis was hurt. Oh was hurt. Everybody comes back to the beginning. So many this time. Juries part of it and part of it but this was an outlier of like you've gotta say last man standing by in but this is an outlier in that in it was a lot of big name cut her. Yes like you said every year. We don't think the sons are better than the clippers. No strikes now full strength. And i don't think they're better than the lakers. Either now full-strength. There's no way but the sun's found but the sun's found something they did find saudi. They did but they did find something. Along the way where you're like de'andre eight stepped his game up. And you're like that's a better player. You know and and booker made booker was show flash. They needed him to be better that he was they needed him to be that great every single often. He's not not there yet. You know enough i really. I wanted chris. Paul to win me to saying but at the same time i was like. Oh it's not just because you got injured you didn't make it There a couple of choices choices that shit you know you. It's not a little man game the nba finals. The is was probably like probably the best six foot point guard. Maybe that's ever played. Maybe thomas is up there too and he was winner. Let's take a break shell..

"His his. Iq is is can't we can't we we you know we go because he didn't win Like two more games in everything. Then bob lori is the greatest player. I'm saying bill. Russell bill russell. The guy got to ten which is championship with some k. average teams and he's playing right now at this age better than anyone has ever played at at this age. Yeah like when kareem was thirty. Six your grandpa right like he gonna break when he walks down the floor. I understand in terms of like i. Don't i if you were drafting a team. If if we were drafting teams right for our lives which one you know and Hobie picking teams and if we had somebody else give fort. Here's the thing. I will say this if i pick. I'm taking jordan. And if the say only the three of us yeah i'll take jordan and the number four pick versus anybody. You guys picked. I'm gonna win jordan. Who whoever that is. Okay but what i'm saying is now the next person is to take. I'm taking lebron in six pick because that's going to be better than amazing drag. You know what i mean. I just think like when you talk about you talk about grades divall times you talk about who you wanna have. You could talk your nice thing about kobe. And he's great and rip and he was. It was great. Yeah but like do you know. Look at shacks numbers and those three championship like it was like it was shack. Don't most dominant force it was. His numbers are ridiculous in those finals. Man so the truth of the matter is any talk about football all the time. Who's the guy on the offensive end of football that we have to gain plan for. Who do we have to change everything for. Its in those lakers things. It was shack. We have to double him up. We gotta hack him at the end of the game so we put him on the free throw line. they're not saying. How do we guard. Kobe knew just put your best guy on them. And see what you can do. They're not seeing that they're not saying we need to throw people out at him. That's why this is such an interesting and fascinating Player too because you kinda have to figure out a way to to deal with him to what he did. The in the end in the last game game seven of this thing was solidified in credible he showed up. he said i am the league. Mvp yup. i am the best player on this court right now. We're gonna win this championship. Because of me. Because i'm a score fifty. I'm gonna go to chick-fil-a the next day. In order fifty. I guess what i'm gonna hit. Sixteen to eighteen free throws to the he was like he he let us know. What kind of champion is. Here's the thing. I need to see him. Do it again do it again. That's because i just don't i. Just don't think mill. I didn't trust milwaukee going into this You know and to put a lot of trust in. Chris middleton and i don't know if everybody had that trust in that dude but he showed up not just him. It's the kyrie irving has now cost himself to championships. Yeah because of his injuries caused himself to championships in the flatter. You don't throw that in there to throw that up in. This obviously is part of the game. But like cleveland would've won the championship eh. Irving i here. I don't even think golden state would have been able to be as good as they were next year. Because i i think it would have derailed their whole thing who knows how the weight late and comes back and he is the klay thompson of old. He can she where where where they next year. Because with steph who played out of his mind this you gotta give him credit for the way he and they brought along young guys like george w i think they're going to be going to be a pretty good team but i think i don't think i think draymond green we. They've already gotten the best out of him he's he's him on his way to. The barclays lot is like you know so in today. Don't that was a big part of their team. But we'll see you know it's like it's all about like how great do we think the bron james still is that we're gonna find out we're gonna find out to find white so fast all right. Let's talk about the us men's basketball team. Because i believe that we didn't take the right dudes like how is ice tray. Not on that team. Why he is to me is the most up in jamil. Here's the thing man so exciting. The best player on that team is having the same problem. He's had on every single talking on. Yeah he's not he's not that do not that and i just think it looks like you know that's what it is is part of. It is because of the type of game he plays so you ask what. What's kevin durant. When is he in his sweet spot. It's when he's pulling up shooting shots k. You're not going to be able to sh- you're not gonna be able to do that every single night. So is he. The guy was gonna muscle guy down when he doesn't have a shot that night and just back down and get into the post and do what he has to do with like inside shots. If you're if you're shots have the wrong. The wrong roster was brought to you know big man you have no big man that you can just start feeding when when the shots you've got again am dri mongering acting like he's kevin love's on the team he's he's not ninety. He's off the team. now he left. You know by the way though. Let me just go back and say one thing though The nets lost because of bad coaching. You think oh for sure for sure he was just too. He was too blue to green. I'm sitting here yeah. He's too green. No way calendar. Asha played every single minute. Yeah no way. Yeah because it's like it's like i in in going into those. It's just that you just gotta have a strong person down the sideline going you coming out. Yeah i need you. we're gonna take this timeout. You'll get two three minutes right here and we'll see what we can do. You know I don't understand What's hispanic exactly. Lean as a new coach coach. I think he will be a good now. What i'm saying now is that. I don't think that i don't think that the us teams being coached to there. I don't think so either. I don't think so either. I'm saying this. I don't want to put it all on now. I love the. I think they have to game plan better for you. This is a new world right now. You can't just show up and be like we're. usa usa. Looks like every other team. You know what i mean like. France has like three dudes rudy. Gobert the best defensive player in the nba. Forty eight is not a bad player on the seventy six. It's just like a heart. I heard someone saying this is kind of like when you look at the ncaa when you get those one and done players versus like those juniors and seniors who played together for three or four years gambling like better team. So that's that's what's happening in the us. But i think the from the coaching fact perspective. You need to develop a game plan and play differently every night. You need to be like all right. This is who we're playing france. They like to they like to spread you out and they like to just take their shots. Will we're gonna get we're gonna get up in their shirt all game and we'll just rotate guys in. I don't think they care about this. Is that they care about. I think because they're mba players and there's something else that they care about more than this which is so bizarre. It's strange it's like to me. It's like why you saw the tennis. Obviously jovovich was look into win the golden slam and he wanted to win gold medal and win all four grand slam tournaments when he gets bounced before he even can win a medal. You're like yeah. But he's focused now on the. Us open which is happening in a little. You know what i mean like. They're all sort of like. They have bigger things in their sports whereas for gymnastics. There's just gymnastics for diving and swimming. It's just the olympic. That's.

"Do you call it team team friend. I'm glad you bring that up. I wanna talk about russell. Westbrook to the lakers. Which for a lot of people. Because you can't do the two are inextricably linked linked okay. So you're like. What was the problem in. Okay see was it russ russ has been now on four teams and four years. Can't get deep into the playoffs on the play offs because he has never met a shot he didn't like i mean at least durant hit some of the shots he takes. I know but they didn't. They didn't they weren't. Maybe they weren't a good relationship. But at the same time i disagree. I think that they were great together. They were up three one against the best team so they just. They needed another year. I wish that they would have came back. I wish that they would have had the fourth. Those three disad three at with the maturity that charity that started. Martin wasn't hardened yet but the thing about westbrook to the lakers is. I think that lebron james has the gravitas has the has the elder statesman has the hey i might be the greatest player of all time to make that case thing. He has that to russell westbrook. Yeah we're gonna do it this way and you think he's gonna listen you. Yes you do. Yes i think the only reason why. They made the only reason why they made that. Trade is because the bron james like i got it but likes the trade. Listen to me. I know wet james said look we know you only got a couple of years left. Who do you want to come and say we can do this. You don't think you think it was surprise. Lebron james went to them and said don't i got it to me. I think they would have been better if they're like. Get me chris ball. Because i don't think chris paul wanted to do that he wouldn't have. But here's my question. Doesn't russell westbrook in some ways. You think about how lebron shoots. Doesn't he give you the same thing. The lebron gives you with just a little light. Lebron james gives you whatever you need. He in at thirty six years old. He led the league in assists. That's what i mean he's gonna drive into the lane and kick it out to russ and he's going gonna give you what he needs. You're not listening in if if if at thirty six years old is the first time he's leading the league in assists that means he adjusted his game. He lebron's going to adjust his game again. I i bet you're going to see a lot of lebron down in post you're going to see a lot of like he's gonna bring shooters in they're going to bring in. What are they gonna bring. They can bring in west That buddy healed guy. I don't think they're going to bring him. Buddy i think westbrook was it was him or healed and they can still get steve. They're not done yet. They need some shooters. They need problem. It the truth of the matter is you aren't gonna find a better combo than lebron ad when they're both healthy there data. That's as good as it gets because a is just such a match problem. You're talking about an older lebron. That's true years older. just find. it's just like it reminds me of the reminds me of that older shack when they won in miami. That's right six. He he still was great. Yeah but he wasn't. He wasn't tasers. The diesel dwayne way was clearly the best. But talk about robin. That like is like dan. you know what i mean. Something me robin. So the beauty of that. And it's amazing for lakers fans if the beauty of that is shocking out and got his on his own and wh and by the way they wouldn't want to doing get hurt in eastern final. That's right and coby went out and got two more on his own. So it's like and that's because the bronchitis down do you think so. Yes yes we we. We never got to see what we wanted to see that here. That would have been the that. We all wanted to see us. Lebron verse cody in the finals. And we never got it and we really wanted to see that and they would it by the way you think. Lebron have the horses to do like he didn't have the full and kobe was the difference between the two of them that some people argue why they would maybe put kobe above lebron in the in the history of the they say. Kobe will slit your throat to win. And lebron maybe doesn't have that too. I'd say i'll take it. I'm disagree with it so tell why are you disagree because some people say. Kobe was about winning in way. That lebron maybe isn't about winning kobe's about winning. The way jordan was about winning lebron yes. Winner winner has won a lot by the way with. Lebron stood up in in miami and said we're knocking it. Would he said was one ragweed and to try before he went to the finals. Like if six yeah. I'm trying to say i gave. The guy went to the finals. Hard time to make it there. I know we know he made it to the finals. I know where we're talking. We went out please. I if they would they would they would. Beat the lakers. Beat the lakers. Lebron james is way in the finals then. Kobe has ever been You look at ron. Our tests should have been Mvp of the finals that year paul gestalt had a had a claim. It was because he was kobe bryant and he didn't have great finals. Man played good defense. But i'm just saying look at his numbers. It wasn't like it wasn't i agree. It wasn't fifty one ten and twelve gave you in finals. I think he would have made to the finals. Oh that that matchup. I just i think lebron's better in. He's better individually. And and that thing you saying like no. Kobe wanted to win his way. That's right. He wanted to win his way he he didn't want to jordan jordan wanted to win he won and he also adjusted. He adjusted his game. You know he passed the ball for championship shot. Koby wouldn't have passed apple. No he wouldn't have passed occur. You went past a stuff. I'm just saying that is the flip. Side of the argument for lebron is that he makes the right basketball player. He just went up again. He went up against like when he went when when he played. San antonio san antonio was way better team. Yeah right all right He went up against golden state team. They were a monster man. They were just complete mobster monstrous team dude. And then you know he. He gets to the lakers went. Come on man you you. You're you have to really look at like these things they say about him. Forget what they say about him and look what he's done. I think i a straight finals. So so so they say so. You know i wa-. I'm watching a guy coach my son and he basically says when you get past your guy if you beat your guy in your coverage if he's covering you beat him and someone comes to you. You're someone comes off someone else to you your place to pass it your place to dish. You don't take that guy on that guy's position of guys come to you that means someone's open to people are people are open so lebron his instinct is to draw those raw them and then make a cake and have someone else do it. I think early on in his career. He was probably more that but i think the last ten years of his career he is. He's a monster you know when he when he won those when when he figured out who we needed to be in miami. He was unstoppable. Did the miami. He was stopped when he came back. He was also. He was unstoppable because they had to account for two other guys who were. But even even cleveland man cleveland. He was cleveland he would. He was like he still went through like he did. But kyrie was the one if you look at game seven in the fourth quarter and the second half game six. Sorry kyri was the one. He's a phenomenal player. Who yeah yeah but you have to remember that because all the attention is on the bron james right and he knows that what you just said. Jay wright basketball.

"Whatever. His name johnson. But at this point it doesn't matter what they already have in place the fact that they even got somebody that is relatively good like that they gotta keep reggie jackson pretty. It's pretty good for their team because they already have. But what. I'm saying. I agree with see. They're already hamstrung because of colli What he made them do so to get paul george. They had to leverage the future so they actually had to sign. Paul george yes or if they don't sign paul george. Don't get quite then no. It's not just that they know. Forget that so. He's he's looking at the future. Forget th they got what i'm saying. Though is they had to sign. Paul george after that or it was for nothing because i gave away everything to get him. That's right. Are you on board with paul george. Hit in the playoffs. Or are you like. I think that I think i think i think he proved a lot to get himself in a better needed his. You know it would be like you know. Look robin can't beat up joker and that's right. He can make he could put up a good fight. And you'd be like okay. Well i i see you. Although people about robin he's a good two way player could play defense he was. Hey i'm saying so. I think he did a lot and he. What he did did may me believe if quiet was there they would have been in a championship and probably we agreed with that. Especially this season with a down. Golden state with with a style so consistent man thirty six points twelve rebounds seven assist every damn game. It's like even when he has a bad game. He's thirty four points. Do you know what i'm saying. Like he's like to be counted on. There is no he disappeared in this game. I mean there are a couple games. He scored like twenty five points. That's him disappearing scoring twenty five points. Paul george a little up and down. I know but but he that's. He's definitely after we is but but i thought he was more up in moments that we didn't think he would be up in this playoffs. But you know if you look at like. The injuries are a part of the game at this point when we talk about kawhi leonard. He's injury prone. Okay this is not new right. He sat out a whole season with san antonio because of a lower leg. It was so miss. Any guy injuried again. He's he's a guy that gets injured right. So let's just. But i was thinking about this the last five championships all have something funky about him. Yeah they all do so this year. you know. Kyrie irving doesn't get hurt nets demolish. I agree with the milwaukee. They were up they were. They were beating the hell out of it. Yeah okay durant was out of his mind almost like during you look at durant now on the men's Us olympic team. And i'm like is this a promotion for 'em night shama lonzo old. Because he looks old. He's eighty four we but the thing is is like i. I have a whole other opinion about that. You know we get to that but let me just say. Finish my point about these last five championship to toronto so toronto the funky co klay thompson gets heard. Kevin durant gets hurt death. Funky funky the to that. Kevin durant won. Those are funky because they were already. The greatest team ever assembled. And then you add this dude right. So i i. I don't feel great about those right then. The year before that the brian wins right draymond green gets gets up three one okay and then the year before that kevin love and kyrie irving get hurt and ended up more takes them to six. They would a lot of golden state. Had to jackie chips. And yeah but i think what you're saying what you're showing what you're proving is because i look at a guy like joel embiid. I'm like this dude for the last. Several years has not been healthy in the he needs to be healthy but this is part of the art of the game. What we're realizing is exactly this is. It's not like i guess. Basically the point in making is this season wasn't an outlier but it is just something that happens in the league and even if you go back to some of the championships that we like that. We revere jordan's first championship. James worthy was hurt. Yeah he was hurt. You know when it was magic. Pistons with the lakers and pistons one year of magic's hamstring. He was out. And then the next one isaiah. Thomas ankle was hurt. I mean there's never a time in the best teams playing against each other playing at their service. That's what makes men. Magic had to play center for that game in the garden and he won. That's what made that so great. He's like he had to step up and over the sixers. Now that was against the celtics. But it's a good point. I mean i look even in the nfl. In terms of there was a moment was last year. I think we're chad. Henny the backup quarterback for the chiefs had to carry them. He had to make to place he on a fourth down play. He ran and scrambled in. Org and you say to yourself you need the backup to be good enough to get you there out. The team's gotta be good. And i think that's what's been proven in the nba. Right now needs some depth. Need some people. But like so. I don't know but if you like just not as kevin durant thing man first of all. There's two things and i. I think that you know how they say. People don't come back from that injury. The achilles injury kim these as well what what we realize is. They can't come back if you give them a year and a half off. That's right yeah. He didn't get that. no no. no. I'm saying i think he did well. He had a spectacular year this year because he had a lot of time usually play like forty percent of the games. Yeah okay. I see what you're so you had all of the covert. He had all of the thing all of the bubble a yet more time than a person would get but he came back too soon on that first injury when he came back to golden. But forget about that. Okay about the most wreath most recent injury he took we're riding out is what we find is i. You should keep they pay him so much they gotta bring them back right but the thing is like what they really should do is like no. You're out for a whole year and you'll be out for the half of the next year after that you're gonna be on minutes restrictions and then a year after that you'll be one hundred percent getting our money's worth but but here's the thing about kevin durant man look. He's a great player. No doubt you know and you know this so never get to him but you never know burner accounts and he's like these birds after people come after me mash me. I don't care but my thing is like you just go back against the heat When he was golden. Okay see okay. See against the heat. There's two or three games important games. He was like seven thirty. Okay very important games. All right he okay so now you cut to them trying to get back to the championship in the things that have happened in in the western playoffs. It was a lot of. They didn't get the job done now. The most most recent of their western play playoffs. They're up three one and in the important games. He was seven for thirty that exactly. But i'm saying if you look at it. I looked it up. It's like six hundred twenty five In the very important games and then he goes to the team were his. He doesn't have to be whatever it'd be the all you don't gotta meet all world guy. Okay he's unbelievable his scrape. But yeah but i think that i could've uncontested shots like i could have got ten ten and three rebounds you and so then you go like. I'm being facetious. But you know what i mean and you go to And then now you cut to now on brooklyn now. Now he's in brooklyn so yeah. He had that great spectacular forty nine point seventeen rebound game in the game today matter if he won or lost They were still in the game and then after that what happens i mean okay is he. Lewis is any loses. His two guys that are that support system. There you know hardens kinda out and i know as out and you know yeah you mean like how like like say. He did the same thing. The brandi of the brown played against the greatest team ever and are like three guys are smith who was like shirtless for half of it. I mean you know he lost. Kevin love loft kyrie irving. I took him to six games. He did you know what i mean. So good lebron chan in in the finals okay. So i'm just saying so you there. I think there's something about kevin durant personality that is not What.
"erik" Discussed on View from the Cheap Seats
"Is super for debate. He's just so so fun. To talk to so eric on the show and then later on the show dennis rodman it's olympics time and he's gonna talk about His connection to north korea house north korea during the olympics. I don't know. I don't think they're there but whatever who knows but been knows we'll talk to him later. Let's stay with the olympics. For our top taker. And that is the fact that as we're recording this The us women's national soccer team Lied of us. Soccer lost in the semifinals to canada to canada. So that'd be like canada. Losing the united states in hockey right or in like tim hortons coffee maker exactly. But here's the deal. It is okay. I'm giving everyone permission. Who's listened this. It is okay for you to be angry at the. Us women's national soccer team is okay for you to be disappointed in that sets right if you are angry and you are disappointed than that means. They're doing something right and to me if we are angry at the us us women's soccer team. It is a greater sign of their success than maybe even their success right that like. They fell short of everyone's goals for them. They should be a. We're not supposed to lose. We were looking forward to them. Going on another run and winning the gold medal they. They came to games away the whole way. This tournament was played by this team to me. Showed me that they were not going to know. First of all they get owned by sweden in game one and lose three nothing then in a weird game against australia. They play for the thai just to advance. Which i guess is fine. And they had a goal called back which was questionable. It shows you. How few chances you get. When you looked at the game against canada each team only had a couple of chances and then canada got a shot. And you're like there's the game right there. The united states throughout this entire tournament has not been able to generate offense and when you don't yes scored six goals against i forget who they were playing against but they scored six goals it fine but take that game out of it. Take that game out of new zealand. I think yet they have not been able to to generate offense against other teams teams that they should be able to canada. You should be able to score a couple goals. Exactly this is canada there. You have to face them. In their part of our continent we should not only be destroyed. Okay the european teams. I can understand maybe lose to brazil. That's one of the even the netherlands but they beat the netherlands. Look this is where. Us women's soccer is. This is where the world soccer game world is catching up to. The women can't show up win anymore. You have to have a plan you have to. You have to play together and you know what this is different than the us. Men's basketball team basketball team because the men's basketball team. They didn't even bring their players. These are the best players that the us has. Soccer team didn't bring their a game. The us men's team didn't bring their players so look i mean. There is a moment by the way this past weekend where i watched the. Us men soccer team. Which i've we've long slagged on. This show beat mexico. There be team. Us men's be team basically beat mexico's eighteen for the concacaf gold cup and that was so exciting. I was like what my watching women's soccer here. lex. I was home. Alexi lexi lawless. Alexi lawless was in tears right like twice this summer. The united states is put up hardware The concacaf gold cup. And then i forgot what the other cope america they won both and may be mexico in the lord of those and by the way. It's not a bad mexico team. There's a good mexico team and the young players. The united states beat them. And you said yourself okay. Something's happening we're building something because we had no expectations on this team. You have so many expectations on the winds team and they let us short they let us down and you ask yourself why so you. You wanted this. Us women's day your alabama. Now you're duke Your duke in basketball you right. Alabama alabama and alabama. Loss to ole. Miss you didn't lose to lsu even lose to auburn your rival in state you lost to ole miss a team that you beat thirty four times in a row or whatever it is. Us hasn't lost canada in soccer and women's soccer since two thousand and one so to me look. They're going to be bumps in the road. They are going to be playing. And and by the time this comes out they will either have won the bronze-medal or not the plan australia for the bronze me better. They better step up. They tied australia. Yeah they better step their game up and blow australia away right and then take their bronze-medal home and be a little disappointed. That's right and use that as motivation comeback to the next one cup and then come and then we sound harsh. It only means that that we're really fans disappointed. And i liken this to when we were doing the roast battle And judging the roast battle. There's a comedian joe. I get his live. I'm blanking on his last name right now. He's in a wheelchair. I don't know what his What he has or what his diseases or what causes him to not be able to move but even speaking kind of a strain for him he also is a brilliant joke writer any also thought of deliver jokes sales right. He's a good stand up and a really good Joke writer and roaster. He wins a lot in roast battle because people try to come at him and then his jokes are smarter and better and wins. We saw Who who was a robin tran. Who him or. Someone beat him Someone roasted against him and he lost and we talked to him afterwards and he was like. I'm glad i lost. That means that they're not giving me special treatment. Well he he belongs there. No one saying. Hey we're giving this to you because you're in a wheelchair they're like you gotta earn it like everybody else. That's the most like equal treatment that anyone can ever give him his say. Hey you got a shot to lose as well. While the women's soccer team lost a game that they should've won. And we as fans right. Now if you're a fan you're disappointed this and that's a good thing for women's soccer because you're like all right prove it when you can come back when that bronze-medal game and then come back in the world cup comeback in the in three years and show us what you're made of all.
Are You and Your Business Protected Legally?
"About twenty six twenty seven years old teaching fitness classes. I'm a personal trainer. I am inc. I have my own business. I even have business insurance but at this stage most of what i was doing was related to fitness. Always doing personal training. I was teaching fitness classes. And i was teaching fitness professionals. How to teach fitness classes. I had a bunch of different workshops kickboxing workshop that eventually ended up being turbo kick. But i was also teaching this workshop called totally tubular in that work. I would teach people how to use exercise bands to do just about everything you can possibly imagine. I mean by the way fitness bands exercise to whatever. You wanna call it. That stuff is so effective. It is so good however is dangerous. Y'all it's crazy dangerous. So when i would teach these workshops i talked a lot about safety and precautions and how to check the band's before you do any exercise where you're pulling those rubber bands towards your face. I'm sure we've all seen the videos. Where one of those bands has snapped and giving somebody a nice healthy welt. Well i have been teaching. These workshops called totally tubular and a woman who had attended when my workshops taught at a local gym in southern california and she was teaching an exercise class where they were using the exercise bands while she was teaching this class. She had the bands wrapped around people's feet. See sat on the floor. Imagine this you wrap the band's under your feet and then you hold both the handles on both the right and left side. It's again anchored by the soles of your shoes. And you pull the band toward your face. A a seated row. Are you picturing this well. In this woman's class someone's band broke and when it snapped. It ripped the cornea off of one of her participants. I leaving her blind in that. I thankfully that fitness instructor was actually an employee of the facility. Where she was teaching that facility had legal liability insurance and they had set themselves up as a legal entity so that no one could be sued individually but there was a lawsuit and the damages. Were substantial

"erik" Discussed on Crypto Current
"Tell everyone. Welcome to another episode of crypto current. Your host here rich a car thon today. I got a very special guest working on. what is i think. Extremely amazing company. That just dropped some extremely cool major news that i don't know of another company that is doing this. We have the one and only erik voorhees with shape shift. How're you doing today. I'm doing great extent a little wild dude. Well glad to be here on the show. No doubt man will just dropped some really good news on me. We're going to dive into that. But i for the audience. Those who don't know you. Which if you don't know who. Eric is by now. You're living on a rock but great news. Today's the day you get to learn about them. Eric gives them back on on yourself. I got into bitcoin. In twenty eleven may twenty seven back with. Bitcoin is like five dollars. And no one in the world cared about it and fell in love with it because i'm interested in monetary sovereignty for all people fit in the space since then started a number of businesses including until she dies citrus the biggest bitcoin casino game in the universe back in the day and was one of the early people at instant york but for the last seven years since two thousand fourteen. Am i have been the founder and ceo of shifts so shapeshifts Has been well. It's early days was a way to convert. When did you last into another without custody or accounts and more recently were more. Like a full suite crypto interface. Still custodial so if you want to interact with your digital assets and not have to trust a third party at any step in the process. We are a great option for you. So that's that's me. Yeah and i mean there's so much we can unpack in it in. You've been in the game for a long time. I mean you really saw the first decade of crypto and you can see like the bigger picture of where everything's headed. And i definitely want to spend time on that later but three or journey one of the things that i heard you say previously is that one of the greatest ways that you can truly learn something is to go in and use it. You're like going in the code and like seeing how everything was going you were actually using it. How was that experience crafted. How you created shape shift in which ultimately like wanted it to be. Because i'm not a developer and i actually can't read any code. Unfortunately you'd like if i could go back to school. I think that's what i would've loved to study. But i see this stuff as more like normal person who doesn't understand code all and it needs to be compelling in these the use and approachable. So that's what. I have tried to build everything that i everything that i have my hands in. That's kind of my principal is like does this make sense for someone who does not care about. The technology is a lot of people. Do but if we're trying to get a billion people into a new financial system we have tools. That are easy and approach full admiral so that has always been by my perspective which is a powerful one which is wide shape shift is extremely user friendly so i went on and spend some time on it. And you know you're able to access a ton of different cryptos in it is now fully. Decentralized which i know is news since around april. Y'all kind of shifted to that. I know you for a moment had to use some. Kyc to set everything up and broke away from it. Can you kind of talk about like that journey. Yeah so that's a big journey when we started. We did not have user celts. And when you wanted to do a trade you would just send in. Bitcoin and receive a theory of and that trade went through us. But there was no user counselors no koa see. It was just like the website do the trade. That's how it should work. That's how the customer wants it to work fast simple. It protects the privacy if doesn't expose their personal private information and that's kind of what we built our reputation on in twenty eighteen. We came to the very unfortunate conclusion that we would implement. Kyc at accounts shapeshifts and this was because we were an intermediary to trade said. Oh our belief was that regulators would end up treating us like a financial institution to meeting. We had to act like bake which was of course completely against our dna at our ethos and our sense of ethics. But we had to do it because no men with guns. We're going to force us to do it so that was twenty a team. That was a pretty dark time. We implemented kc we lost like ninety nine percent of our business that was pretty brutal and we kept on. Truckin kept it out to you. The products we changed from this solely exchange to this full featured crypto interface. Where you could plug in your heart wallets and interact with your digital assets to safe and easy way. But it's still had that. Qa see and a lot of people understandably that was that was not cool like they. They don't want to join a crypto project just to feel like they're working with the banking so after kyc lost ninety nine percent of our customer base. They just went with competitors that. Were not being as careful as we were. We spent those couple years reimagining. The shapeshifts products into a new interface for people to interact their digital assets. Still self custody people could still trade but of course it also have the c and we did not have a solution to this until we started seeing some of these. Decentralized exchanges like unicef Very popular going into twenty twenty and we realized that if we could just give up on our business model we could integrate these decentralized exchanges that bring back our vision which was to allow people to swap assets seamlessly easily and protect them. So that's what we did neither graded swap About a dozen other theory based texas and in april we launched our Integration which allowed people to trade actual like native non raft. Bitcoin for native rap to theory him so change. You can actually go across teams and decentralized way which is a a huge velvet so by then we should be trading at all with customers anymore or didn't to financial institution anymore and we were able to get rid of qc entirely which is extremely powerful and for those honestly understand kyc so for other exchanges like a coin based for example you have to submit documents to be able to do certain exchanges out of that exchange but now shapes shift. You don't have to prove anything you can come in ready with your crypto to buy and sell and take shamed into others and that is extremely powerful but not only. Are you able to do that on shift. You as an organization decided to go even a step further. So top of the hour Breaking news eric. Share with me. That your company's actually going fully decentralized..

1989 Washington Post Article Details How Professors Use Marxism to Indoctrinate Students
"1989 Washington Post piece that talks about how Marxism is. Really being, uh, really common. Now in our universities, and, uh In college is how the hell it's been assimilated into the systems. Diversity is now the signature of once monolithic Marxism. Writes the reporter. Professor Spivak, who teaches English at the University of Pittsburgh, calls herself a Marxist feminist. Professor Romer, economics professor at the University of California. Davis designs Marxist market driven economies. And Erik Olin Wright of sociology professor at the University of Wisconsin, calls himself an analytic Marxist seeking to break marks his grand theories down into their component parts. This is It was amazing as they spent. Was 12 months or so into this book, and I found this article. Which sort of undergirded everything I was saying. Because you can see it. You can smell it. You can touch it. So while this reporter Barry injures expose is quite accurate. The consequences of multifaceted applications of Marxism are manifest today throughout modern America. The brash marks us as she wrote, still exist, and their numbers are growing both on campus and throughout the society, culture and government. In the early Progressives understood that they must institutionalize their educational activism by, among other things, controlling the administration of education. And the classroom. Very tenured and unionized legion of teachers where, like minded instructors armed with ideologically driven like social activism, curricular populate all levels of educational institutions. Often choose their successors and are protected from scrutiny or competition.

Bitcoin OG Explains How to Keep an Open Mind
"Our guys bang bang. I've got eric here with be doing. The sir makes me on for sure. let's just jump right into. I think was probably one of the most interesting things that you've been spending time on since last time we had you on the podcast which is shaped shift has essentially transformed itself. You've completely ripped out all the centralized infrastructure and you really turned into this new model Where it's an interface to all these decentralized protocols just like what exactly does that entail wide you do it and how's it going so far. Yeah so for. Most of our history shapeshifts was essentially an exchange or we would take one coin from one person in send a different coin from us trade with us and it was non-custodial and that we didn't hold any balance but we were essentially an intermediary to each trade and in twenty eighteen. That's what got us all caught up in all of the financial regulation in which we had to impose. Kyc and I would call highly unethical surveillance on people which we've been fundamentally opposed to So we've been searching for a way out of that you know we can't break laws but i also don't want to spy on people and i don't wanna be a branch of the government surveillance apparatus to how do you have you square that and the way we square. It is by integrating decentralized protocols now so we no longer are an intermediary in any way we do not trade with customers We are no longer a financial institution and that means that we do not need to. Kyc people it means that we do not need to act like a bank and we can let users trade directly against these decentralized protocols in a really really cool way so we've completed that transition now and as of april fifteenth tax day. Ironically we are fully fully out of that mess

"You know, Erik when my hip was bothering me, I went to my main doctor, and then he sent me to a specialist, right? An orthopedic surgeon and I had a hip replacement at age 58. So we know we need to go to specialists for our health. What do we need to be looking for? When we're trying to find a financial professional to help us with retirement? Yeah, That's actually a really good question, because there are so many people who call themself Financial advisors soon as you see banks have these people call themselves financial advisors there really just investment managers or they'll sell you some products. They're not doing really any sort of real planning or anything. So really, if you're trying to get A true plan. It should be something that you can pick up. There's actually a study that was done in one the talks that we use for on couples, and there's a stat. Those scary. It's in 73% of couples can't agree if they have a written income plan. What's up? It's written on paper. You can pick it up, right? So you can either go pick it up or you can't find it. And that means you don't have it. So s so Yeah, if you don't have a plan that's actually written. That shows you how your money is going to last the rest of your life that shows how you should be investing on then also, make sure that that person knows taxes. Taxes are a minefield in retirement. I mean, people have no clue always tells us the people and they don't understand until about a year after retiring, then they come back to me and say, Oh, my gosh, taxes are way more complicated in retirement. Why is that you get a pick your taxes You get to pick which type of money you take from what type of account that has different ramifications for taxes. So if that financial professional says we don't do tax advice, or we can't help you attacks is get out of there someplace that can help you with with taxes and investments and doing the planning. Cause that's when you need a specialist. You know you're not going to go the singer, you know, one or two year old typically Tio general practitioner, because usually they don't know as much about little kids. You have sent him to a pediatrician, right? Well, the same thing here on the reverse side, You know, why are you still going to the pediatrician when you need to be going to a specialist, you know, or even your general.
