Because of the circumstances we got going white fangs. But if you've got kids not bad not bad. The the animals are beautifully animated and the The the humans look monstrous. Maybe to dogs but yes that's probably. That's that's yeah. That's what i said. I said it's not literal literally how they see. It's an impression of how they may see us because yeah they don't see color. Nick offerman plays the the lead Protagonist pro protagonist and paul. Giamati is the antagonised. And there's also a native american Native americans here and there That's also come into the fray because of as you'd imagine we see native americans train dogs at least According to white fang Different little different.

Camp rock camp directed by rene baron and douglas blush. Douglas was an editor on twenty feet from stardom and also ecus ecus accuracy. One film says it ninety three percent run. Tomatoes is just a ninety. Nine percent are ninety. Nine cent rental on apple. Tv plus amazon prime. So you're not going to invest too much in this movie but good news. It's enjoyable so this is stars. David fish off he is. The founder are familiar anderson with the fantasy rock camps. I would imagine very similar to like the sports fantasy camps. Old washed up has bins Let me way of saying and then they let people that were big fans. Come be a part of it. I can't came i. I'll be honest with you like this actually as worthy to feature an episode of the simpsons your rock fantasy camp and you get to play with wealth featured in this documentary alice. Cooper roger daltry. Sammy hagar joe. Perry gene simmons paul stanley and nancy wilson among many many others. The idea is that you go to this camp for a week or so or whatever it is maybe it when you rock you get you get right you you form a band with other campers and and pros like the alice cooper roger dalton and you get right song performed songs or her songs and at the end there's a big performance where all the all get together and they all play their songs. It's about this movie is about as good as a by. The numbers documentary can get like. I'm message expectations are not very no. It's very very good but it's not transcendently. Good you know. It's not young at heart or twenty feet from stardom or something like that. But it's very good. It's very watchable. It's very enjoyable. it's everything it's by the numbers which can be good and bad in this case is good. It's everything you'd expect. Every hits every beat the you expect to come It's a lot of uplifting stories not just like oh follow. These campers whatever like is not boy state. It's you get the backstory. Unlike some of these campers rockers. You know yeah. They're our the campus. I think that's what it's going to boil down to her. They are they Fun to watch. Are they They did a really good job of profiling. Certain ones like. I think one or two of the guys who go have like kids who are on the spectrum disabled kids i remember correctly one is severely disabled and one is like like mildly autistic and he actually goes to camp with the dad and it turns out he fucking shreds on the guitar. Like you probably have experienced the anderson real like to stick person can have struggles at with many things in their lives but to have one thing. They're fucking great at and this kid shred guitar it. It's so cool to watch this kid. Who's so shy and so withdrawn like really come out of his shell with the guitar. You get the idea. They profile you know heartfelt cases and they're the little pods. It's like four campers into pros and may form band whatever and they name themselves. One name themselves motley. Ju the can't say that. Though i actually emailed the producers told news offensive for our listeners But the the fans if they are called old bearded motley jew probably would probably be. That's where you that's where you slept. Let me ask you this. Does anyone in fact end up rocking with their cock-up. I did not see any cox out. This is probably a p on drugs movie. There's this one guy that profile who was like a really talented drummer. And he's sixty eight hour. Whatever and his life one a very different direction but you can see like oh yeah. The guy could have been professional. Drummer allenton like. It's a heartwarming tale. I enjoyed it. It's like it's like ninety minutes or something like that so rottkamp streaming on well rental but Like i said a ninety nine cent rental..

What's Behind the Rise of the Pandemic's Bull Market?
"Year ago today. Us stocks bottomed out but since that pandemic plunged something almost unimaginable happened. Wall street quickly shifted from bear to bull market setting new records along the way under center for serie. We wanted to take a look back to see how we got here and discuss where we might be headed next to do that. I'm joined by the wsj's caitlyn mccabe. She's on the market speed and is well equipped to explain all of this caitlyn. Good morning hi. Thank you so much for having me. So caitlin at the beginning of the pandemic we saw three major stock indexes plummet the s. and p. five hundred fell by thirty four percent in just twenty three trading days now fast forward all three have rebounded strongly. The dow is up around thirty three thousand mark so big picture. What played into this turnaround. Yeah so the. It was an exceptionally fast turnaround. We saw this incredibly steep and quick plunge and then it took just one hundred twenty six trading days to recover back to the february nineteenth closing level where we were before the sell off. That happened coinciding with the covid. Nineteen pandemic so. It was one of the fastest recoveries on record after such a steep plunge and i mean really the the climb back started with investors piling back into growth and tech stocks and that's carried so much of the market upward four the last year since you mentioned tech stocks. It's important to stress. These gains have not been seen across all sectors. Exactly so you know after. We reached this bottom on march. Twenty third twenty twenty. It became pretty clear pretty quickly. That investors were concentrating their money in growth stocks and big tech stocks. And so you saw big gains right off. The bat in what traders liked to call the fang stocks and so that stands for facebook apple amazon netflix in google's parent alphabet which spells out the acronym fang and these companies are so large and they comprise so much of the snp that was helping push the s. and p. five hundred up but you weren't just seeing growth and big tech. You're seeing of course you know Traders really interested in in companies like tesla. You're seeing zoom. You are seeing just all of these growth in tech companies Rising because i mean one simple explanation for it is that they were the companies that were standing to benefit the most from the pandemic shopping online. You had people using cloud computing and you know video messaging software and things like that and so that was really driving the market upward. You know of course. There is from time to time rotations into cyclical stocks and more of your industrials and energy and banks. But it really was for so much of twenty twenty just the growth in tech leading s ahead and then caitlyn more recently. We've seen a stall in us stocks. The nasdaq briefly went into correction territory earlier. This month last week. All three major indexes lost ground. What's going on here. So since the start of the year. We've seen this really steep and swift move up in bonney olds and that's had a ripple effect across the market so the short version is basically that the economy is recovering people are getting vaccinated and investors are really looking ahead to summer or fall where things might be returning back to normal and so of course there have been some concerns of inflation creeping into the market and so that's driven bond yields up which has an impact on assets across the market and so investors have been dumping shares of tech companies Basically because you know higher yields can mean higher borrowing costs for for businesses and higher yields also make investors reevaluate. How much they're willing to pay for. Future earnings and because significant earnings for tech stocks are expected to come in the future. It makes investors basically question how much they're willing to pay for those earnings. So you're seeing investors pullback from tech. You're seeing quite an uptick in energy and banks and and other cyclical stocks so. It's going to be really interesting to see how long lasting trend s and finally kaylin you talk to traders and analysts as a markets reporter. What's peaking your interest for the future. I think we're in this really interesting period in markets. Where right now so much of what's happening in the growth versus value trade is very fundamentals based and people are trying to evaluate the impact that yield will have on tech stocks like i mentioned in growth companies and what that will mean for banks and energy companies and everything that we've talked about so far but then you have this whole other segment of the market that is less connected to fundamentals right now. You know we saw the massive rise in the minimum stocks earlier. This year the game stops the amc's of the world you know we have this ongoing specs craze Cryptocurrency at that market is incredibly interesting. It's just gonna be really interesting because you have these two kind of branches of the markets that are going on right now. Where there's just this euphoria in some segments and then everyone is also trying to drill down this value versus tech trade. So i'm just going to be really interested to see what happens especially in these other segments of the market as we see more interest among retail traders as we see the spac craze probably only going to continue to grow and see what effect that has on the broader market

It's that process that you take them through to get them to buy. So i love the way you kinda describe that. What should he coach really have in mind before they begin to look for a funnel expert. They should really be looking at how well they know their own business. A funnel expert that is worth their salt will be able to help. Guide you to get there but a lot of people that get to me in. They realized they didn't know as much as they thought they knew. Or they felt like they kind of throw spaghetti at the wall and get there. And that's one of the things that when you do know that sometimes that's when you get to the final builder and it just makes your business explode versus still going through those waiting sets and so the best thing i can tell anyone before they get to a funnel. Builder is to really do a lot of market research and on a continuous basis. That we really getting to know your ideal human to the point where you can almost speak in their words Had an interesting conversation with a prospect the other day and she said i was in this webinar and i decided to buy click funnels. Now what the heck do i do with it. And i'm like wait a minute. You kind of put the cart before the horse there little bit. You don't buy the system before you know what you're going to do with it know what you're gonna do with it before you buy the system. Would you agree with that. I completely agree with it. But i am so guilty of doing it. Sometimes we will lose. Make such hype about a product that you're like. Oh my gosh. I know i can use this. I'll figure it out and you get so excited and you buy. And i've done it like i've done it multiple times in sometimes. It works out and sometimes it doesn't end just figuring it out is kind of the entrepreneurs if you will but sees how resourceful you'll be but for sure now that i'm like better and business and that i know i will one hundred percent tell someone like no no no. You're not ready for that. Get rid of that. Yeah i think they often don't even know When they do that kind of thing whether it's click funnels or one of these other like fang pools kind of thing objects. They don't always know what a funnel is or what A marketing system is or something like that so they buy it. It's the solution when what they don't understand us. It's actually just part of an overall concept. So are there alternatives to click funnels for building funnels. Are there other ways that you can do it. I mean click funnels. obviously that's a good one But are there other ways to do it too. There are other ways to do it. So you can stick with the funnel builder so before you can use lead pages which is a cheap way of doing it. Almost on the cheaper end of the scale and you can easily pages. So that's great and you can connect a whole bunch of pages together. If you are also going to do it. You could use grew funnels. New one and their marketing. The fact that they are free for lifetime right now you can use f apps or you can do or you can almost bootstrap it and use plug ins on wordpress and that is another great way to do it but again since the way in which you sell is also very much relationships based so if you have a great email lists that came in from either a summit or some other lead magnet you can also do a complete funnel via email in create those relationships without ever having to build a funnel builder. Yeah i so agree. I'm glad you made that point is. I'm always one of those you know. If you don't need to spend a ton of money on a system to get it to do the same thing may be that's not the best investment for you instead. Spend money on the expertise of having somebody help you build something that's gonna be aweso. So how does coaching know that. It's time to hire a funnel expert. They know when they're ready to offer something. That is validated. So i can you bring something. That's not validated. Absolutely because most vulnerable will also be able to help you create an amazing offer or bein tune offer. But if you wanna make the most out of your experience if you haven't offer that's validated to someone has purchased it in give you feedback and you know how to and you know how to roll with. No it will take off. Take those take those. Take those pieces in. Go to funnel builder and they'll be able to take to build out your funnel for it so to validate it. All you would need is to put it on a page or even marketed to your facebook group or to your email is say. Hey i'm building this thing. Are you interested in it. If if people bite then you know you have a viable product. That's when he say. Hey now i want someone else to build it because you wanna to save time. You don't want to spend hours tweaking in figuring out how to get the headliner coloring right have someone else. Who's gonna do it in a day so you can just get back out there making money. Yeah and a lot of times you know we. We don't know what we don't know on our own businesses were too close to it sometimes even if we're good at doing copy or something like that sometimes we're good at doing it for other people and we're not great at doing it narrow businesses so i think a lot of times hiring an expert to do some of those things can be hugely valuable whether you're skilled at it or not. So what it. What does the process look like. So if somebody comes to you and said hey alexandria to help with my funnels. What does that look like so for me. I feel like there is no such thing as a perfect package. I don't like giving someone a packet offer because what you need for. Your business is not what cindy needs for hers so when someone comes to me like hey. This is what i would like to do with my business. We sit down. We have a long top usually do. It's a two hour intensive where we deep dive into your ideal humid not just the ideal human for your business but the ideal human for this product. Because they're not always the same because you might be targeting someone at the beginning of their journey versus someone who's ready to solve a problem right. The

"Christine Fang or Fang Thing is your name to a place before he was even in Congress, So that makes it even more perplexing that there was a relationship there now. You know, Look, there's always going there may always be people that work for the other side of America and want to come at you. Um yeah, that can happen to you innocently, but we don't know any of the details. And so apparently, this went on for a while. When I want to know is since he was informed of this And when was he informed? And why was she allowed to leave the country and go back to China? And she she's involved with more than one person. And so what did what did Nancy Pelosi? No. And when? What did Adam Schiff? No and when, But of all the people in your party that did the speaker or the leader has the ability to nominate for this committee? Why would you pick someone that has this type of a background and he doesn't bring some type of other background? You know, one of the things as I made my case to get Intelligence committee is I've been in an environment in the military served in war was engaged with high level clearance and was being trusted and kept up on these types of things and have a background related to this And so it background seems to be anything but So I'm really curious. Who knew what when And if the FBI informed him, Why did they let her go back to China? I just don't know the answer to these things. And why haven't members of Congress been informed of this type of activity taking place by China so that people can be ware? And so it's just a little bit perplexing to me and as you look back at the timeline Clearly controversial figures were in charge of the FBI. When when this started, it was Bob Mueller, and we certainly know him from the Mueller investigation, and James Comey as it is, he was head of the FBI and under both of them. There was a serious work about a fake Russian collusion story with the Trump campaign that we've had to deal with. So not exactly the most trustworthy. People at this point in history will show But why have they not given us answers to this and so just a lot of questions? I have a lot more questions than I have answers. And it just seems to me that Mr Swalwell should not be sitting on that committee until those questions are answered, and there's some kind of clearance of his name and his involvement. Well, it sounds like you're Han show in this effort, and that's a good thing. I mean, where does it go from here, though? I mean, someone has to be accountable for this. Pelosi, uh, himself. Swalwell. Someone has to be Responsible for this. How will they get to the bottom of it? I don't know. You know it Z If it was May I think that I'd be shooting down my colleagues and say, Hey, here's what happened. She tried to give whatever the case may be, she tried to get close to my campaign. I don't know, but it seems to me when you're not wanting to talk about it, he says that he says I can't talk about it because it's classified. Well, you can talk to us in the classifieds. So unless you have something to hide, why would you not be sitting down and talking about it now Recently, Kevin McCarthy and Pelosi got a brief on it, and Kevin McCarthy came out afterwards leader McCarthy and said, I think that he needs to go. I don't think that he should be sitting on this committee and shouldn't be sitting in timer. So you know this is the opinion and he formed after getting the brief and I think we all should get that briefcase. Certainly, Why would we be comfortable in a room where we're getting top secret material given to U S A top secret information and had this man sitting there. We don't know if he's trustworthy or not. Absolutely. And you're talking about red China, And unless you've been living in a cave for the last 15 20 years, it's pretty darn obvious that they are our main adversary. And this is extremely sensitive. I think now am I wrong Congressman that Pelosi knew about this in 2000 and 15 and still put him on the Intel committee. Uh, I believe that to be true. I'm not exactly sure. I would like to hear from her on that, too, and give us an explanation. She's just come out publicly and said he's fine. You know, Don't worry about it. Well, that doesn't really work. And so I think that Flow nation all need to know the details of the story and also make sure that this doesn't happen to other people and be on the lookout for the types of things that they do. China is not our friends. Let's just put it out there. They taken smile through a lot of things you know, in their mind if it benefits the state. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that. We know how they want to steal our intellectual property and steal our patents and how they have every intention of pushing. Influence around the world, and that's something that we have to fight. Australia's doing it as best they can. And they're right in that sphere of influence. You've seen what China's done in the South China Sea, putting military installations on these reefs. There's there's a lot of problems with China in the world today, and we didn't even talk about the virus that they gave us. Yeah, exactly. I mean, they're completely responsible for it Did from what I can see Absolutely nothing. Remedy the situation..

David bloom kelly. Leffler control the. Us senate future. America is on your shoulders now. Now that you raise the stakes but it really is. If we win we win one. It gives a margin of error for republicans internally disagree and if we if we win both of them and it gives a greater margin for the gop to have some internal squabbling occasionally that they might have and still be able to hold a majority here. Because i'm i'm looking at the democrats right now with fifty fifty and i think people forget the amount of stuff they're talking about tax wise and fiscally can just put into reconciliation package.

That is backing jon. Ossoff as opposed to the hong kong freedom movement and supports china advancing that legislation that caused the protests in hong kong. That would crack down on the hong kong freedom movement. That company has ties to the chinese communist party. The chinese communist party is giving the media company money and then surprise surprise surprise. That company starts only money to jon. Ossoff okay. maybe we should be worried. Maybe we should be concerned here in georgia about jon ossoff. It fits the pattern now. There's no thang thing for bang. Bang for john off there. There's there's no fang fang that we know of i i i would have a hard time believing that with us off But i you know the guy on the campaign trail in two thousand seventeen.

The puns right themselves with the story. Fang fang chinese spy. Well i shouldn't say that fang fang. Did the bang bang with eric swallow but it appears that he's not denying he's not affirmative. He's trying to blame donald trump. He say it's all donald trump's fault that donald trump is smeared him. Okay let let me let me just. Just let's bring hard cold reality into this story upfront. If donald j trump president of the united states had advanced classified knowledge that little eric swallow it lost his virginity to to a chinese spy. Do you really think he would keep his mouth shut on twitter for a year. Do you really. I mean do you really think donald trump could have kept his mouth shut particularly considering that her name was fang fang. Here's swallow and i was a little surprised to read about my cooperation in that story because the story says that there was no. There's never a suspicion of wrongdoing. On my part i did was cooperate and the fbi said that yesterday but the wrongdoing here. Jim is that at the same time. The story was being leaked out. Is the time that i was working on. Impeachment on the house intelligence in judiciary convince and this is a country where people who criticize the president are going to have law enforcement information weaponized against them and that's not a country that any of us want to live and i hope it is investigated as to who leaked information. Wait wait wait. Wait just a minute. You're the guy leak in the salacious. Russia stuff that donald trump was a russian plant. You're leaking all of that information and it wasn't true it genuinely was not true and you're league that and now you're upset. We have legitimate story. It took a year. It took a year of axios and others Breaking down the story talking to people behind the scenes to get the story right it involved you in two thousand fifteen two thousand sixteen colleen a chinese spy allowing her to put an injured in your office and you're blaming donald trump. Now this is nuts. Now here's here's what we know happened. Eric swallow had this relationship with chinese spy. She did not get classified information from that we know of he was on the intelligence committee. He had a defensive briefing by the f. b. i. Defensive briefly as they come and say. Hey dude will She's a spy and you need to back it off. He broke off ties with her. I'm not sure what happened to the intern. She had in his office. But a part of the chinese political intelligence operation is to get political data on these guys their likes and what their schedule is. Any rumors about. is not necessarily to get intelligence information classified intelligence information but to get dirt on them individually that they might be compromised later summit..

"But not the case for everybody and i can see how it wouldn't be the case for greg anderson any case We that we have right injured. He's appalled. He's a old appalled by donald trump and for some reason he's appalled by donald trump for a bunch of stuff that isn't even true and the way to solve that is to take it out on thomas jefferson now. The cowardly kudarat came later that night when the school formerly known as thomas jefferson elementary. Perhaps we could take the washington football team approach and renamed the school simply. The elementary school tweeted out the news of the name change and then deleted it as soon as people start. Criticizing the schools have made their decision. Now there's gonna hide under their beds until the meat until the mean people stop yelling at them about it as it happens. The board members are able to hide under their beds or in their beds because schools and falls. Church have been shut down since spring of last year. They recently voted to extend the remote learning farce until two thousand twenty one at least so while students remain abandoned in limbo having not received a real education nine months the board has spent its time conducting a moral assessment of founding father who died two hundred years ago. That's what they're doing with their time. Needless to say their moral assessment is wrong. Yes jason owned slaves. So did george mason. These were flawed men but their flaws were nearly ubiquitous in their time not everybody owned slaves of course but i doubt whether any single person on earth in the year seventeen seventy six or any year before it or even in the century after it could have passed as racially enlightened by our standards today. Most of the world's still cannot pass that test and many people in the world still owned slaves in fact just not in the western world. In jefferson's time his perspective was about as enlightened as it got. And that's how he and george mason and their compatriots manage to lay the groundwork for what would soon become the greatest not to mention most diverse racially tolerant country on earth. We honor the founding fathers. Four that great achievement. We don't honor them because they were perfect. We honor them because we are americans. This is america and they are the men who built it. That should be reason enough. If it's not reason then. No historical figure is safe. None great people often commit great sins. Martin luther king junior was allegedly a serial philanderer who watched and laughed as a woman was raped. If we cannot put thomas. jefferson's bad choices in the context. That why should we lend that graced. Mlk if we're looking for a perfect hero among mere mortal men anywhere on earth anywhere in history. We will not find him. Even if we're searching simply for somebody who wouldn't be called racist and bigoted and sexist by our standards. Today we still will not find him either. We can choose to see historical figures in the context of their time. Judge them accordingly. Celebrate them for the great things they achieved while choosing not to emulate whatever they committed or we can systematically go back through time and condemn every person who's ever lived and all of our ancestors established fought for and passed down to us every good thing we have in our lives. The left has chosen its path. And it's one that leads nowhere but to insanity as you just saw and that is why the falls church. School board is cancelled with a vengeance. Everybody else attacks histories history tears down statues monuments takes names off a buildings all canceled. Thomas jefferson is not cancelled man no matter how much they try to do it. They won't succeed. Because thomas jefferson achieved. Something that that withstood the test of time. He did something he changed the world. These people on the school board are doing nothing. They're not going to be remembered. Not even remembered now you could be in the room with them and you'd forget they were there. That's how that's how utterly.

"Cancelling. The falls church. School board in virginia on tuesday. The school board voted unanimously to change. The names of thomas jefferson elementary school at george mason. High school achieving. Well i think is one of the great feats of bureaucratic cardis by knocking. Out the of the bill of rights and the author of declaration of independence. All at once in one evening. School board chair greg anderson and announcing the change said quote the board took seriously the viewpoints in concerns raised by many students parents staff community members. We thank everyone who shared their perspectives with us. And we'll be mindful of their comments as we now begin selecting names that reflect the diversity of opinions and our community. Our schools must be places where all students staff community members. The all safe supported and inspired contrary to mr andersson's blathering here the viewpoints of anybody who claims to feel unsafe because an elementary school is named after thomas. Jefferson should not be taken seriously a person who raises such concerns should be summarily dismissed as mentally ill stupid insincere or some combination of the above. Their opinions on the issue are not important. Their feelings don't matter their desire to dethrone. Our greatest national heroes should not be treated with even a modem of respect. But that's how it should be and we know that how it should be and how it is are two different things especially these days. Report from the local falls church. News press says that the board was making the move out of respect for the strongly felt sentiments of students teachers and citizens although adults it's also it also notes that a majority of that group student teacher citizens didn't want the name to be changed. The board members ultimately caved to the demands of the unreasonable minority. As it often goes it takes a special sort of coward to make this sort of decision under those circumstances and footage from school board work session in june when they first began talking about this issue shows that the board is indeed occupied by those sorts of cowards. The members can be seen babbling semi coherently about equity and inclusion none of them seeming to terribly excited about the name change but none possessing the minimal courage required to speak up decisively against it. This is how bureaucracies from the local school board. All the way up to the federal government often wind up making mind-numbingly terrible decisions. Not everybody involved has to be radical ideologues. They're usually only a few of those the rest just have to be so spineless. You wonder how they managed to sit up straight in their chairs and that's certainly the case here. Let's say let's let's take a look at some of that Work session listen here. deeply-held concerns about george mason. Thomas jefferson as owners of enslaved. People have led a lot of folks to push for a new name for one or more of our schools in a long standing racism. Inequities being denounced are being fought on a scale that we haven't seen in decades Had a debate with myself whether i should say within my lifetime. Because i wasn't sure if i really wanted to. Just say that but there you go. Certainly in decades and people across the country are looking to themselves to each other into their elected leaders to make the changes that are needed. Thank you terry anderson. I agree with everything that you said. I think there are this. Consider myself a pre decisive person. But this is definitely something that i have kept an open mind on and i definitely see both sides of this issue and i do feel that. It's an important one. i agree with. I think everything you said. I also support the notion of starting a process I think the question is far from clear. Certainly in my mind and in the communities mind because we are talking about two people in this case to man Who have mixed legacies. Who accomplished a lot but Clearly on slaves and. That's an extremely hard thing To forget and you can't forget or really forgive you can just perhaps understand. What a just an absolute parade of cardi. We just witnessed there especially the first all of them but especially the first guy. He makes the perfect cowardly bureaucratic type of dude Chair of the school board. Nothing going on at all. Yes we we care about. Diversity and inclusion and a lot of people have different opinions and everyone's opinions of valid. Some people have an opinion that says one thing others have opinions at say another everyone has good opinions and opinions are all good tolerances. Good diversity diversity is very very good. We value diversity. Just shut up dude. Sex safe something can you say. Can you string together a sentence that means anything. I didn't care what it is capable of that. Probably not but all of the wimpish waffling and platitudes spewing eventually gave way to a decision the wrong one as expected one of the school board members philip right-winger and you you just saw him at the end of that clip and explaining his vote during the meeting on tuesday night inadvertently provided i think a master class in orwellian rationalization reading from his prepared remarks in your says that he decided to vote for changing the name partly because donald trump put kids in cages. Now it's not clear why. Thomas jefferson should be blamed for the immigrant detention policies instituted by obama or even donald trump should be blamed for them. All ranger could say was that trump's alleged bigotry had led him to conclude that the board had to do more for diversity. He also implied though that having a school named after jefferson and mason makes a statement that people are not created equal and then he claimed that the best way to live up to the words of thomas. Jefferson is to quote no longer have a school named after him. You have to hear this for yourself. Terrorism but i will vote to change the names. I believe that at this time in this place it is the right thing to do. The critical moment for me was the presidential election. I know this is a non partisan board but i hold political views and those user affected by my values just as where the presidential candidates views affected by their values. I was proud. That in the falls church city the democratic candidate who's used favor equity and inclusion with over eighty one percent of the vote however outside of falls church approaching half the country voted for the other candidate that candidate put children in cages. He said there were good. People among the white supremacists marching in charlottesville. You stoked division at every turn. I am appalled both by his behavior. And what the vote means for the country. I feel the need both personally. And in my capacity as a member of the falls church city school board to help change our course and do more for diversity and inclusion. We need to fight inequality and racism with action. We need to speak out. Although actions matter more than words words matter by having schools named for george. Mason and thomas jefferson. We are making a statement. And i think we should make a different statement. We should instead make a statement that we believe all people are created equal. Thomas jefferson wrote almost those very words and we can better live up to the goal. He set by no longer having school named for him. Amazing amazing by the way i. I just noticed watching that clip back. That two of the people there Anderson the school chair that we we heard from earlier. And then one of the other guys has the pronouns up on the zoom call for next to their name. They got the him of course. Of course they do. Of course they do. And as i said before If if you if you are so often mistaken for a woman that you have to specify everybody that you meet that by the way. I'm the man. I that's that's a separate issue You might want to look into you. Could you might even talk to your doctor about that. you know maybe to star pills or something might might be might be a good idea to look into You know what i find is that i don't have to go up to people and say i've met walsh pm. Because they they sort of like just get it by looking at me. They get the heat part.

What's the this This immunity enjoyed by shoppers at be big retail outlets continues. I guess if you're shopping at walmart for consumer products your immune just like if you're marching racial equity your immune you're celebrating joe biden your immune. You're going to the funeral of a passed away democrat or someone who or or someone who was shot by police. You're immune really incredible scientifically. Maybe bill nye. The science guy can explain the science behind that. Because i gotta admit i'm i'm pretty stupid. I don't fully understand it myself but there is maybe they could check maybe ordered on amazon. And and wait at your house. And maybe while you're waiting for the ps five might take a few weeks. I guess You think about developing a hobby of some kind that doesn't involve sitting on your couch.

"Just saying latin. What are you didn't need the x four. I'm trying to make sense of something that that is nonsensical. So maybe there's no point in doing that now. We got bill nye here bill. Nye is begging for attention again. Probably we shouldn't give it to him but here we are. And here's the video let's watch. Here's a map of the united states. The reading shows where people are wearing masks shows where people are getting sick with corolla fewer the mass the more the six and there's a perception that virus can travel to the fibers of a mass. Like this red dot because viruses don't travel by themselves traveling droplets of spit and snot. And the fibers are tangle so when the drop what gets into the fibers of a mess. It gets trapped. This is not that hard to understand everybody. That's why we have rules about wearing a mask. Now you know about wolves you pay taxes on the whole road but you only get to drive on one side at a time otherwise so everyone please wear a mask thank you everytime see bill nye. We have to remember that he goes by the science guy for reason. It's not just that. It rhymes with ny It's because he's not a scientist so that's you anyone who call themselves aside. I'm i'm wall science guy. Anyone could call yourself that shirt. I like science to. I'm a science guy so he's not a scientist he's a science guy which means nothing at all but i keep i keep hearing this this. This claim from people like bill nye everybody else on the left democrats We keep hearing this claim that you know we've got that we got the new surge because people aren't wearing the masks and that's why the the virus is surging again. Where is that the case. Because everywhere i go i mean this is all attic dodo but everyone must be just be basing this on anecdotal evans. So my own anecdotal experience. Almost everywhere i go. People are the masks. Certainly a large large large number of people are wearing the masks. Red states blue states. I have traveled quite a bit during the covid nineteen pandemic. Forgive me. I have and everywhere gone people wearing the masks. It's it's actually shocking. How many people wear them. And how consistently and how you know the one thing that i noticed especially on planes now because you're sitting around people For you know hours at a time. And when i look around i don't even fidget with the mask. I don't even see that many people anymore putting the mask underneath their nose. I still do that. So i can breathe but most people they just have it over. There knows they don't touch it. They have it on right and then they keep it on for hours at a time. It's it's creepy. But that's what people are doing and yet the virus is still surging. Maybe there's a connection here something to think about. Finally i've probably enjoyed this a little bit more than i should. Here's a local news. Report out of troy michigan about a bunch of grown adults who lined up all night in frigid temperatures. This is michigan remember december now and they line up all night outside of a walmart for a video game console only to be severely disappointed in the walmart actually opened. Watch this so the rumor. Was that walmart here. In troy had the playstation five. It's one of the hottest items for this holiday season. Well word got out about a hundred people starting lining up at about midnight. This long you guys. How many days you guys tried to get the playstation hours twelve hours. Yes sir why is this one of these. We need them when the doors open. A stampede of people went into the store led by fati from troy people wanting to get this but only to find out that walmart had no p as fives. That's according to the manager right body. She comes on tells us that they have none in stock so if we were told that they're gonna have on the stock monday and we waited seven hours in the freezing cold of twenty eight degrees. Why is there is your stock. Okay that's That's good You know what serves you right. Serves you right. This is how you decide to spend your night waiting in a walmart parking lot for twelve hours. How do you not call the walmart i. That's my question now. We were told to report a rumor. There was a rumor they heard from somewhere. Before you even think about getting your ten out and can't be how do you not just call them and say. Hey you getting into the ps five nobo-. Apparently nobody did that. They just i don't know they were driving by. They saw other people waiting. When you guys waiting for all where we've been waiting for twelve hours for a ps five. I guess i will do that. And they run in and there's no by the escorted out by police officer so many questions arise for me. When i see this first question is why just why in general i have i have never wanted a consumer product enough to wait.

"As a simple as that as far as i'm concerned. Now let's get to our five headlines all right now we get to our five headlines pulled up here. I got a bunch of clips to play today but before we get to any of those. Here's a report from the daily wire representative eric. Swale will sits on the sensitive intelligence committee said in response to an explosive story about ties to a suspected chinese spy that quote congressional leaders knew about it they knew about the matter and imply that they apparently did not think that it was a big enough issue to keep them off the intelligence committee the alleged spy chinese national christine fang quote Targeted up and coming local politicians in the bay area and across the country that the potential to make it big on the national stage through campaign fundraising extensive networking personal charisma and romantic or sexual relationships. This according to a report from axios even though. Us officials do not believe received or passed on classified information. The case was a big deal because there were some really really sensitive people that were caught up in the intelligence network according to a current senior. Us intell- intelligence official. Yeah i would say it's a big deal. I would call that a big deal When you've got a congressman who is potentially involved with the chinese spy this again you know we find this this pattern playing out where the people who were accusing the trump campaign of this sort of thing with relation to china. Were actually doing it themselves. We see this over and over again yet. Another guy who was railing about about Donald trump in russia is suppose donald of his supposed ties to russian espionage. That whole time. He's got this some sort of acquaintance with a with a chinese spy. That of course the big story. Big big big should be blowback for eric's well at a minimum. I still don't think it's as big of a story as eric. Swale farting camera during this interview. That to me is that well. Here's all that is what will still ultimately define him. And i'm glad for that. That's not as big of a scandal. But i'm fact that this just absolute mediocre unimpressive empty. Nothing of a man will ultimately be defined by the fact that he fired it on camera. That's all his his entire public. Life will come down to and i really. I hope it's more than the chinese spy thing. Okay biden biden's got his co. Vid taskforce together. And i want to play some of this dr marcela nunez smith She's one of the people on the biden covert task force. And she's found ever. We're going to get a lot of this From the potential biden administration. We're gonna get a lot of of course racial izing. Everything like the left always does. She's found a way to racialized the covid pandemic and data identifying what she calls a racial grief gap. You've heard of the wage gap well. Here's the grief gap was. It is not a coincidence. And it is not a matter of genetics that more than seventy percent of african americans and more than sixty percent of latin x americans. Personally know someone who has been hospitalized or died from colon nineteen the same disparities ingrained in our economy. Our housing system our food system our justice system and so many other areas of our society have conspired in this moment to create a brief gap that we cannot ignore. She says it's not a. It's not a coincidence you're right. It's not a coincidence. There's a reason behind it as we hear about how you know Racial minorities are disproportionately Affected by by covid an infected by by the virus. The reason is that racial minorities are disproportionately of in cities. And so that's the reason. And and when when when you live in a city and there's a a a large population condense population Population densities is high. You're going to have more spread of of of a virus. That's the reason there's no. There's no various racism behind it. I'm not even sure you hear this this. This implied from people like dr marcella. Here implying that there's racism behind it that you know more. More black people are getting Disproportionate number of black people are getting covid. It's racist she never explains how. How exactly is it racist. What what what exactly are you implying. She never gets there she just throws it out and of course we get the lat next thing to that that is another thing with potential by administration. We have to get ready for that. We're going to hear this. Latin x thing from bureaucrats in the federal government all the time now. Of course you talk to any latino person or most of them. And i and i have asked i mean this. I pull out on twitter recently. Asking any Hispanic followers how they feel about this latin next thing and what you find on surprisingly. It's almost all white liberals or non white liberals in this case we're doing latin necks and also by the way it should be pronounced thinks so first of all.

"Words they have no ethical standards of any kind whatsoever and nothing they say can be remotely trusted their statements and commitments declarations about seriously they wanna protect rape victims etc. Me nothing after all. If they really cared about protecting victims they would. Just shut down entirely. A porn distributor claiming a commitment to combating sex trafficking is about as credible as all the tobacco companies. Now saying that they want to help rid the world of nicotine addiction. This is the script they have to read but it cannot possibly be true. They're very existence testifies to the falsehood of their claims besides the measures from pornhub are laughably insufficient. Even if they're actually adopted which they won't be what's to stop a verified user from uploading a video of an underage person or someone who's been sex trafficked or somebody who's unconscious or not consenting. The verified user gambit is also especially unconvincing because the bar for verification as low as the website. Fight the new drug notes. All a person has to do to get verified on. Porno is upload a photo of themselves with their or a photo of someone with their pornhub username and pornhub website written on a piece of paper or their body. There's no attempt to verify age much less that of all the performers quote unquote in a video in the videos themselves. This this is just verifying something really verified. Nothing about the person uploading. The video doesn't tell you anything about the people in the video. While the efforts to protect the people in the videos is virtually non-existent the efforts to protect the people watching the videos are literally nonexistent. Pornhub makes no attempt to prevent children from accessing the hardcore filth on its by for no attempt at all they don't do anything to visit. Budweiser dot com. You can try this yourself you at least have to enter your date of birth if you wanna go through the official camel cigarette website. You need to register for an account. The sign up for a bitcoin exchange like bit finax. A user has to provide their address phone number email and two forms of government issued identification now surveying the options on the spectrum between the symbolic age verification of a beer company's website to these serious verification process of a crypto exchange portable x to do precisely nothing. They don't choose anything they don't even do the symbolic attempt any random eight year old can go to what's your l. And watch gang videos without having to jump through any hoops at all. This gives you an idea of how serious porno is about protecting anyone least of all children and this is why we have to stop relying on the integrity and good hearts of executives at porn sites trusting them to make good on their word to self regulate we should force the issue just like we do with all the regulations imposed on the alcohol tobacco industry people. Don't normally complain about that. No one ever i. I rarely hear anyone complain. That a that. A you know an eleven year old can't to seven eleven and buy pack of cigarettes. Nobody complains that this is a. This is a nanny state or an intrusion or anything like that. Now i confess i would be in favor of simply burning the porn industry to the ground. Salting the earth with with his ashes but in lieu of that pornhub and all sites like it should be legally required to verify ages of all users at a minimum those uploading content and those viewing the content. If you wanna buy a porn magazine from a gas station is that's even possible anymore. You have to show id. There is no reason why you shouldn't have to show one online and don't tell me about The parents job okay. Yeah the the the parents should be doing more to protect their own kids but again if a nine year old girl walks up hustler magazine to buy a two by two to the to the cashier at a gas station. Would you be okay with the cashier. Just selling it to him on the basis that well. His parents aren't doing anything about it. Might as well just make a buck. Now there should be at least the same Level of scrutiny placed on pornhub as there is on gas stations now through such a requirement may destroy pornhub as most of its users would be too ashamed and freaked out to give their id to a porn site. That is a risk that i am more than happy to take now. The government could go even further and should is teri schilling outlines in his excellent first things essay published Think earlier in the year. He's check it out. He talks about what we could regulate pointy says we could have zoning laws requiring porn sites to move to a dot x ex domain where age verification would be needed to access it more aggressively congress could amend section to thirty of the communications decency act getting rid of the blanket immunity enjoyed by big tech companies and holding them liable for the content posted on their platforms. This would mean that a sex trafficking or revenge porn victim could sue hub for hosting monitoring the footage of their abuse. Why shouldn't they be able to sue. If it doesn't seem possible for a massive multibillion dollar porn platform to really regulate its content and guard against child porn and rape porn. That might be a sign that massive multibillion dollar porn platforms shouldn't exist the only real downside to regulating porn copies. Far as i can see it is that it might make porn executives a little less rich and it might it might cause some mild inconveniences for internet users. Who want to watch other people having sex. These are trade-offs that i think a society can live with trade off that we should embrace enthusiastically in exchange for offering at least some protection to the porn industry's many victims on both sides of the camera.

"Abuse. Material is irresponsible and flagrantly untrue. We have zero tolerance for ceus. Am pornhub is unequivocally committed to combat am and has instituted an industry leading trust and safety policy to identify a radical illegal material from our community. They also claim to manually review every video posted to the site claim. That itself certainly be flagrantly. Untrue as pornhub also both proudly that users uploaded nearly three hours of porn per minute last year only a day later pornhub changed. Its tune rather dramatically. Perhaps having something to do with the fact that mastercard and visa said they'd be quote reviewing their relationship with the filth peddlers the company announced. Suddenly that it would be taking major steps quote unquote to quote. Protect our community. I thought they were already doing an excellent job in that regard according to their own statement not twenty four hours earlier. How can you take major steps to better do something that you're already doing. Nearly perfectly these major steps include limiting uploads to verify users only prohibiting most downloads from the site and also expanding moderation of the content again. It's hard to understand how they could expand their moderation if they were already manually reviewing something like one point five million hours pornography a year. The conflicting messaging though only makes sense. When you remember that this is a this is a multibillion dollar company that makes its billions distributing videos with titles like young tiny teen and extreme choking a company that will let you search for porn using a search term like fourteen year old in other.

"The new york times committed a shocking act of actual journalism this week when they published a lengthy op ed titled the children of pornhub columnist nicholas kristof calls attention to an issue that earlier in the year was the subject of a petition that amass nearly half a million signatures namely that the behemoth smut site traffics and child pornography rape videos and other forms of abuse And then of course films and uploads them for public viewing kristoff writes quote. Pornhub is infested with rape videos. It monetizes child rapes revenge pornography spy cam video of women's showering racist misogynistic. Content footage of women being fixated in plastic bags a search for quote girls under eighteen. No space or for fourteen years old leads in each case to more than one hundred thousand videos most aren't children being assaulted but too many are now. We should emphasize that. Even if a preponderance of the videos found using the search terms do not actually depict children being raped a sizeable portion do depict it as he mentioned and and it also almost troubling a significant portion of the non-rape videos found through these search keys are still meant to appeal to people who want to see. Children being raped the point. Is that even the videos on the platform that do not involve child abuse or rape may still desensitize the viewer to child abuse and rape and intentionally so pornhub itself proudly tells us that one of its most popular categories is team okay. Are we supposed to believe that. The grown men huddled around their computers and darkened rooms. Looking for videos of teens are really hoping only to see eighteen. And nineteen year olds. No they wanna see young women or girls disrobe perform sexually for their enjoyment. They're concerned about the actual ages of the people on the screen extends only so far is providing them plausible. Deniability showed the fbi terms like teen and barely legal are work arounds. A wink between pornhub in its users. The site feeds in appetite for illegal porn. Even with its legal porn. That shouldn't distract from the fact that there is a lot of the straight up illegal stuff on the platform and there are very real victims to tell the tale. There's a little more from christophe says pornhub quoting now. From a woman named kelly pornhub became my trafficker. She says she was adopted. In the united states from china and then traffic by adoptive family and forced to appear in pornographic videos beginning when he was nine. Some news of her being abused ended up on pornhub and regularly reappear there. She said kelly said i'm still getting sold. Even though i'm five years of that life now twenty three she now twenty three. She is studying in a university hoping to become a lawyer but those old videos hangover her. I may never be able to get away from this. You said maybe forty with kids with adhd and people are still masturbating to my photos. You type young asian and you can probably find me. She added kristof then. Notes that a search for young asian returns tens of thousands of videos along with related search suggestions such as young tiny teen and also young girl. There's a whole channel called exploited teen asia. Now i suppose we're meant were meant to believe that the people looking for young girls and young tiny teens or clicking on video compilations with titles like screaming teen degraded teen extreme choking all examples mentioned. The article are really only interested in seeing sober willing adults engaged in consensual sexual relations. And we're further supposed to believe that the users uploading this content with these sorts of titles are only providing that sort of legal and above board content. But anybody who really buys that claim must have already had their brain melted but melted by porn overconsumption. the fact is clear pornhub makes untold millions monetize in child porn and rape videos. And it's not an accident. There is a huge market for this stuff and pornhub serves that market. But a funny thing happened after the times piece was published in the immediate aftermath. A spokesman for the company sent a statement to the national review indignantly indignantly denying that they had any serious problem with rape abuse videos on their platform. The statement said in part quote any assertion that we allow. csm child sexual.

"Off shoes. Boy You pledge yourself which a non assets I I don't know. How are You doing this Regina? I'm doing well excited to be here your first time. Like guesting on another podcast. Are you serious? Yeah I believe you're such a natural podcast conversations my house. That's a travesty. Thank you thank you know. I'm super excited to be here. Been like such a big fan of your podcast and I feel like I don't know I just I love listening to you speak. I feel like the podcast is just obviously like a great way. I mean we have known each other only for a few months but I feel like every time we talk. It's just so real and raw and genuine. I feel like I've known you forever. I feel the same way. Well it's funny because I've been listening to your podcast with Christine perfectly imperfect. I've been listening to that for quite a while so I feel like it's that same feeling of like we know each other feel. I've talked with you and heard your thoughts and feelings for awhile. Sounds interesting feeling of connection which I appreciate but no. I've had so much fun getting to know you. Regina this shoutouts off the Mike Girls because this was a great connection. Oh yeah definitely definitely yeah. Well we're here. This was actually something that I wanted to do for quite a while even before off the Mike and it was just further solidified by events where you got to host such a great conversation. I heard it from multiple people about body positivity and just knowing more about what you've been going through as a person as a professional I stopped me so great to have you sit down and talk with me on first of all okay because it is something. It's a topic that you know. I think any person can relate to yeah yours truly for sure And I'm just curious because I couldn't be part of your breakout session. I was curious like how that went for. You like what you guys talked about there. So the first time we ever even brought up this topic of light body positively or just like body. Consciousness was in an episode. We did for perfectly perfect also like way way in the beginning and I remember. I had such a hard time recording. That was my first time really actually owning up to it because I've always grown up like a little curvier than other girls you know. I'm not necessarily plus sized but you know girls got a booty and it was always like really hard for me to buy. Clothes made me feel really self conscious to like constantly compared to other Asian American females. And so I think that it was so hard for me to record that that even as I was editing. I ended up opening up more like ended up editing like recording separate clips and then having that inserted in because I felt like I wasn't tripping as true and open about my body image issues like that. I grew up kind of struggling with so that was like my first kind of intro into just like kind of talking about it more openly. That's because that's such a public way. You know what I mean if you've never even say in a private setting between friends like really even acknowledged it to go. It's like going zero to one hundred pretty quick so I just wanted to take a second sorry to interrupt but just commend that because I think it's incredibly brave like honestly I don't know this whole podcast situation. Just getting to know myself in my thirties. And even before that which was like being aware of like your own truth as as cliches that sound but like knowing yourself and knowing how you are y you are the way you are. The total is a big deal. You know so yeah I mean I feel like that's how I feel about my own podcast where I feel like I'm diving into these topics where I'm like Ha. I didn't realize that that behavior stemmed from. This is why I think the way that I do so I am very grateful for that and yeah I think that with this. I think that the outreach to that from the community after you do talk about these like really hard hitting topics like that was super encouraging to just hear like other people's struggles that they feel the same way and the thing is like everybody has some sort of warped body image issue. I'd like you know even my friends who I think are. Oh so perfect. They're all like Oh. I hate my hips. I hate my Blah Blah. Everybody has that about themselves. And I think that that's what I wanted the session to be about where it's like a lot of these perceptions that we have about ourselves are the most negative thoughts that we think about ourselves one hundred percent not in like but the thing is the problem is is that we project onto other people and whether that's dating friends meeting. New People like I remember sometimes like in College. I would wear like a skirt. That's like a little tighter. Maybe my stomach showing a little and I'd be like Oh my God. You know this guy that I'm meeting right now. That's probably all he sees that which is consumed me. Oh my God. I looked terrible. I feel terrible and it's probably not even what the other prisoners thinking in the first and so we always build up this idea of who we are in other people's eyes when in reality that's just how we think about ourselves. Oh totally and it's like that's the all consuming nature of these insecurities. Should they go in my opinion? This is my opinion but like should they go unacknowledged they they start to really run the show. And that's the part that I think has been so maddening about that whole process of becoming more self. Aware is recognizing because it is a very for me at least. It was like a super humbling infuriating realization of like how much these decisions or these into not decisions. Honestly I wasn't deciding I feel like these insecurities these beliefs or these are straight up this board at like paranoia right really delusions of grandeur. Whatever you WANNA call them. I don't know what the proper a psychological term is but it ran my life. You know and in part still kind of does which still pisses me off in like a noisy. But I'm just really trying to reconcile without which is why I care about having these kinds of conversations because it does help to hear that I'm not alone in this. Play this issue and this feeling of like you. Sometimes you like. You're crazy person because you can't ever just chill you're not for me. At least I just. I couldn't relax 'cause I'm always in my head about it. Yeah and your mind is just thinking about all the negative things about yourself not even just about body image is like oh. I don't like the way I said that I don't like the way that I wrote that. I don't like the way that you don't like it's it's all consuming and I feel like that so much so negatively affects your self esteem and the way that you via the way that you view yourself the way that you even put yourself out there. You know like even a work situation friend situation. I feel like when you start thinking about all these negative thoughts. You don't put your best self forward for and I love what you said about acknowledging the fact that you have these insecurities. I think that was huge for me. I think in the beginning I was always like why do I feel this way? Why do I have these like negative thoughts about myself all the time in? Why my projecting that I'll to other people. I think that when I was able to really hone in on like okay this stem from growing up in an Asian household where Asian family members not just parents which is of like. Pick at your body like. Oh yeah they take liberties. Yeah exactly right. It's it doesn't even phase them. It's like asking about the weather. It's like Oh you've gained weight. Thank you you're so bad. Yeah my yeah exactly. And it's like such a mixed like ward cultural thing too and I remember when I was little like one of my great aunts used to like love to like like slap my arms and my thighs us like so bound. C. And she's like Oh.

I hope that we can continue to create a space where others can go into that part of themselves and acknowledge whatever needs to be acknowledged in good time and to learn embrace yourself and deal with a lot of the struggles that people deal with their bodies and with how we feel about ourselves as people because it is a very deeper thing besides just you know the physical self so yeah.
