Yep, and Ontario is Well when I was growing up it had about Three to four thousand people maybe oh wow, and they had the number one violent crime and drug use stats in the state of Oregon The way it was explained to me by the police was if Ontario was the size of Portland There would be three times the violent crime that Portland sees she's It is bad. My sister was shot in the back when we were kids. I had friends get stabbed My buddy Sean had to carry his intestines to the hospital because he got a stomach laid open. That is crazy I never would think that yeah, same and people don't talk about it because like you don't hear about it on the news and right because it that shit happens in small towns all the time and It's just so unheard of that most of the time. They don't tell people outside of the town Wow for a long time Ontario was just Still is to a certain extent. It's just a really garbage place to be with all the drug use and So many my friends OD'd and so many people I knew got I had a buddy that I've known since we were both like infants and He ended up getting HIV from chair needles. He got really bad into heroin and stuff like that. It was just It was everywhere. So we decided to leave she had some family up in North Dakota. So we went to Minot, North Dakota and I was working.

LJ's Journey to Fatherhood: "People Don't Give Dads Credit at All"
"I'm LJ you can find me all over the internet as the stone philosopher or I'm on Twitter. Dr. Lib slips PhD MD. I like to sling some shit around the internet. It's always fun I've been a single dad. Well, I've been a dad since I was 18 years old and I turned 33 in December I've been a single dad for about since February of this year and Taking care of three of my five kids going to university and working and Trying to make my way in this crazy world. And one of the things that I picked up the fastest is People don't give dads any credit at all. Like there's no built -in credit to being a dad It's like if you do basic stuff as a mother people praise you. You're so wonderful. You're so awesome I know because I participate in that I glorify mothers to no end I was raised by a single mother, but they got nothing for there's nothing in the tank for dads You're just expected like you do Go to work for 60 80 hours a week and taking care of your kids and they're just like yeah You're supposed to do right and I get it because I feel the obligation but like come on, dude Give me a little bit more. Yeah. How was it having kids at 18? I mean, that's that's very young I always knew I was gonna have children and I Just didn't think about it and I think that's a lot of the issue that a lot of people deal with these days is like It didn't occur to me as a negative in any way. It didn't My girlfriend at the time who later became my first wife When she told me she was pregnant with my son She asked me what are you gonna do and I said, well, I'm gonna get a job, right, right? They're providing, you know, yeah, right I got a kid now, so there's like obvious solutions to some extent and then you know The awkward conversations with her parents and I had to tell my mother and tell my dad I think I had a fairly unique experience in that regard because I Wasn't a great kid So the fact that I made it my see so my oldest son was born My birthday's December 5th, my oldest son was born the March following my 18th birthday So I made it farther than anyone thought I would by that point anyway So I think to that extent I had already been extended a little credit. It's strange because I wonder sometimes If I'd be different if I was able to have been adult for a while without being a dad. Yeah, but then when I think about it, though, I Was hell on wheels man, I don't know that I'd still be alive if I wasn't right it kind of slowed you down Helped you might have helped. Yeah
Fresh update on "first jobs" discussed on Cryptocurrency for Beginners: with Crypto Casey
"There is still some social media circulating about how a recession is on the horizon, the market is going to severely crash, and we may even experience a depression, etc. However, we must consider how financial crises often involve massive liquidity being pumped into the financial system like we experienced during the pandemic, where asset prices started skyrocketing, the rich got richer, the poor got poorer, people blowing stimulus checks on designer purses and watches, and where risk on assets in the market like bitcoin and crypto started pumping like crazy. When Jerome Powell announced the Federal Reserve wasn't going to raise rates, we saw a rise in stock in crypto markets. And as we discussed in previous videos, historically the Fed increases interest rates slowly over time, which on the line chart looks like a staircase, before dropping them dramatically, which looks like an elevator straight down on the line chart. Even if this time around is different and they pause a few more times before decreasing, the market is going to react, because the market is forward thinking and moves based on what is more likely to happen in the future than not. So with this rally following a pause, the market is thinking that interest rates will start decreasing, and based on every single time in the Fed's 110 year history, when they start decreasing, they fall fast. So historically, what should we be prepared for as crypto investors in the short and long term? Well, we need to be aware of what's happening in order to prepare. We need to be aware of the fact that Tether, the world's largest stablecoin by market cap, fired up the Tether printer mid-October a few weeks ago, creating more Tether tokens, also known as USDT, to meet real, increased demand in the crypto markets. And zooming out, the last time Tether started creating more Tether, back when COVID hit, it continued printing throughout the last epic bull cycle. So as we are seeing liquidity in the crypto markets increasing, consider this tweet by Arthur Hayes, Keep your eye on the prize! Almost $200 billion in liquidity injected since the start of November as RRP, or reverse repurchase agreements, balance falls and TGA, or the treasury general account, balance hasn't changed. Risk assets like Bitcoin and crypto will continue to fly. And the bottom line here is that it means global liquidity is increasing, which means there is more money in circulation, which usually ends up in the stock market and risk on speculative assets like Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. And taking a look at the Bitcoin price chart using the Moneyline Charting tool, which has been extremely accurate at predicting flips between bullish and bearish trends, Bitcoin is in a bullish trend, and when the market is bullish, we too must be carefully and cautiously bullish. And pay close attention to what's going on. Hello I'm Crypto Casey and in this video we are going to explore what happens when the money printers start printing, how the money flows through the economy, why the rich get richer during financial crises, and how we can use this knowledge to increase our chances of making some gains in the crypto markets. Let's hit it! Sweet! Cash is king. We've all heard that one before. And the reality is, the closer we are to the king, the more powerful cash becomes for us, and the farther we are from the king, the more harmful cash becomes to our livelihoods. The unequal distribution of money in the current fiat system benefits those closest to the government and harms those farthest from the government in a phenomenon known as the Canton Effect, a French word that is sometimes pronounced in English as Cantillon. So let's start out with exploring how banks work by breaking down three theories about where money comes from. One, the mainstream theory is that banks are just financial intermediaries that lend out their deposits, which involves banks making loans to borrowers from deposits made by customers at a certain interest rate. Customer savings accounts accrue interest to incentivize them to keep money there, and the bank charges interest on the loans they issue to borrowers to pay interest to the depositors as well as themselves. And the regulatory framework that has been used to manage this type of money creation is reserve requirements, where a bank is required to keep a certain amount of capital which dictates the amount of loans they can make. The idea was to place restrictions on banks to avoid banking crises. And though this type of regulation was imposed back in the 1980s, tons of banking crises around the world have occurred since then, including just this year in 2023. In fact, between 1970 and 2010, the International Monetary Fund reported over 425 systemic banking monetary and debt crises, which worked out to about an average of 10 per year. And this brings us to the second banking theory on how money is created, called the fractional reserve theory. When a bank lends money, it needs to have excess reserves to use for lending. This method was dominant from the 1930s to the 1960s, and what ended up happening is banks became interconnected, shifting different reserves between each other on a nightly and weekly basis. Essentially, leveraging against one another, creating a money multiplier effect, which piqued a lot of people's interest. The creation of leveraged money in the global financial system was very experimental, and ultimately, this theory was replaced on purpose in the 70s with the mainstream theory that banks are just financial intermediaries that aren't particularly special. The ultimate goal being, oh, there's nothing to see here. When in reality there is a very big important thing happening that harms pretty much all of us except the top 1% of people around the world. So the third theory of banking is the most true, accurately depicting how the global financial system actually works, which was the most dominant in the 1920s and 1930s. According to this theory, banks are not just financial intermediaries. Banks are the main creators of money. So when you get a loan, new money is created out of thin air, and thereby increases the supply of money in circulation. And this theory that banks create money out of nothing is suppressed and largely unknown by the masses by design. But it is the most accurate because it's the only banking theory that has been proven with empirical evidence. So let's explore why this theory is suppressed and how it benefits a few people while harming the rest of us. The fact that banks create money from nothing makes them extremely powerful because, at the end of the day, they get to determine who gets the new money via loans. Who gets the new money and what do they end up doing with it? Whoever gets the money and what they decide to do with it has huge, serious impacts on the economy. If banks create money for a person or company to buy real estate, they are essentially pumping money into the real estate market, which causes prices to rise. If banks create money for a person or company to use to consume goods or services, they are essentially causing inflation. So when banks lend money to people or companies for assets, it creates asset bubbles that burst, which causes banking crises. This is what caused the 2008 recession. Banks created money out of thin air for everyone to pump into the housing market. And when everyone couldn't afford to pay the loans, the housing bubble burst and took down a lot of banks with it. So it's important to understand there are actually some positive cases for creating money out of thin air. And it's better to think of this process as monetary expansion that is actually necessary for economic growth. For example, when banks create money for a person or company to grow a business, a business that creates and performs valuable goods and services, this creates growth in the economy without inflation. These types of loans create jobs, foster innovation. As technology gets better, things become cheaper over time. And generally, it gives us everything we want for society without all the negatives. But clearly that's not happening. So let's talk about what is happening, which is the Canton Effect. The Canton Effect was coined by Richard Cantion, an Irish-French economist and banker, in a piece of literature he wrote called Essay on the Nature of Trade in General, which was published in 1755. In this essay, he stresses the importance of entrepreneurs as drivers of economic activity who are traders, innovators, and merchants that take on risk and ultimately earn profit from taking on risks. Keep this in mind as we explore another key element of this essay, where he explores the non-neutrality of money, which is more popularly known as the Canton Effect. This phenomenon is all about how new money enters the economy. The people or entities that create money are deciding when new money enters the economy, where enters the economy, as in which sector or industry enters the economy, for what purposes, whether it be asset purchases, consumerism, or business growth, and ultimately which people or entities get the money. So what's important to note is when new money enters the economy, it is not equally distributed across the economy, it's not equally distributed across sectors, across asset classes, and most importantly, it's not equally distributed among people and businesses. When new money enters the economy, it first goes to bankers, bureaucrats, and politicians. They are the first to reap the benefits of new money, and this unequal distribution of money impacts individual wealth and is the key cause and driver of injustices in our modern society. Because when banks give their friends money, they get to spend it on whatever they want, which is usually commodities and other valuable assets, and they are also afforded the opportunity to take advantage of arbitrage. Here's how. Since they get the new money first, they get first dibs on using it to buy real estate for example, and when they are all buying up real estate, the new money pumped into the real estate sector causes prices to increase. And by the time the new money trickles down to regular people like you and I, we are unfortunately priced out. We have been seeing this since the money printer was fired up to prop up the economy during the pandemic. What else went up? Stocks. And when all the bankers, bureaucrats, and politicians got their money first, bought stocks, and by the time we got our money, stocks of course were already climbing. So yes, according to the Canton Effect, whoever gets new money first has an arbitrage opportunity to use the money on goods, services, or assets before prices rise. And bankers, bureaucrats, and politicians are able to buy things at reduced prices, therefore have massive financial advantages over everyone else. So basically, inflation that happens from the Canton Effect is pretty much a government-imposed, non-legislative, and regressive tax on our purchasing power as common citizens. This is how banks and governments enrich the wealthy, further impoverish the poor, and why the middle class continues to decrease over time. Great. Next, let's explore how the Canton Effect potentially is playing out in the crypto market, as well as what we can do to hedge against it in our journey to financial freedom. First, I want to show you how fast and easy it is to become your own bank and set up a secure cold storage hardware wallet in less than 60 seconds using Tandrum Wallet. Opening the box, here we have the three cards with a new sleek matte black design. Next, installing the correct and official Tandrum mobile app on our phones and opening the app, tap scan card and touch one of the cards to your phone like so. Next, click create wallet and tap the card to your phone again. Nice. Now that we have a wallet, let's create backups of it. Tap back up now and then tap add a backup card and tap the second card to your phone. Cool. Now tap add a backup card again and tap the third card to your phone. Then tap finalize the backup process. And now we need to create an access code to secure the wallet. Tap continue, create an access code, re-enter it to verify the access code, and then scan the primary card ending in the corresponding numbers on the screen that matches that card, holding it to your phone until the operation is complete. Then repeat this process for the two backup cards. And that's it. It's configured and ready for use. And if you want to watch a full video of how to use Tandrum Wallet, check out this video guide by clicking on the link above and scroll down and use links below for a nice discount and to access the correct and official site. Amazing. So a while back on the channel, I released a trilogy series breaking down how the traditional financial system is structured as well as the crypto markets. If you haven't yet, after this video, check it out by clicking on the link above to get up to speed. Basically, if we understand and think about how Tether's stablecoins are created and distributed, we absolutely have had a Kantian effect here in our very own crypto economy. Tether, the largest stablecoin by market cap for several years, has never been backed dollar for dollar in reserves, and they have been basically printing Tether the same way central banks print money and distributing it to whoever they decide. So did it give these people the opportunity to buy crypto at lower prices due to some arbitrage at some point and cause crypto prices to rise? Likely yes. And on top of it all, the Kantian effect in our traditional financial system also affected crypto. From Wall Street using their first to market free money to gamble in cryptocurrency. Lame. So now the golden question. How can we protect ourselves from the Kantian effect? Well, one way, like we always discuss together, is by increasing our income streams, and by ideally becoming entrepreneurs who take on risk, create value for the world, and get rewarded for it through earning profit and generating steady cash flow in order to take advantage of investment opportunities more freely. Why is it so? Well, when working for someone else, we're usually at the mercy of a fixed income or relatively fixed income if commission or similar is a factor. And as the Kantian effect wreaks havoc on society, you are a victim of inflating cost of living, which means your fixed income is becoming less and less valuable over time. And if you've only got one job working for someone, you only have one source of income, which can be pretty risky in addition to your income already being fixed. Whereas as an entrepreneur, you can ideally transition to non-fixed income situations. And entrepreneurs find gaps in the market, find opportunities to solve problems in the world, and affect real positive change in the world, all while producing cash flow for themselves. Cool. Another way we can protect ourselves is actually by participating in the new networks and ecosystems being built on the blockchain. We are experimenting with new ways to more equitably distribute money and capital via Layer 1 and 2 blockchain networks and DeFi or decentralized financial applications. Digital assets like NFTs will also create new ways for us to build and distribute wealth, which we explore together in this video you can check out by clicking on the link above. So blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies are creating ways we can transact directly with each other in a peer-to-peer ecosystem without intermediaries and third parties like banks. In fact, this technology, depending on how we utilize it for our own projects, companies, and future entities, will allow us to become the central bank of sorts of our own unique economies, which we also explore together in another video. So even though the global financial system has been quite dire for the vast majority of us, for at least the last 250 years when Richard Kantian first pointed out the Kantian effect phenomenon, there is a silver lining. So be aware and be prepared. Awesome. If you would like to learn more about how the money line works, check out this video.

"Yeah, pursued that. I was excited about film and new media studies. I didn't love actually being behind the camera. I was a senior in freshman classes and film production 101, learning about Aperture. I was like, I don't want to do this. This is not fun for me. I was like, can't I just tell someone what to do? Isn't that a thing? And someone's like, oh, you want to be a director? It's like, yes. It's like, exactly. So yeah, I moved a little bit away from technical film and really loved the theory and things like that. And so I was able to explore concepts of social justice and equity and race and representation through that studies and then took that into my hope. I was hoping to take it into my professional career, which I did, which quite different as my first job, which was I was helping first-generation college students get into college when I first graduated, which there's more similarities than I thought. I was really excited about that role. And I wrote a lot. I helped every single student tell their story, writing college essays. I reviewed lots of college essays, lots of supplemental essays. They ended up being more connected than I thought they would be. But yeah, I did not go into a film and new media studies advertising role right after college like I wanted to. But I think the college, the supporting students to get into college was really impactful, one that led me to the career that I have now in education. I mean, I feel like, and I've said this on the show also before, college is really that time for you to experiment and explore exactly what it is that you want to do. And I think it's specifically for the reasons that it sounds like your parents didn't want you to go into some specific field. I mean, K through 12, we're kind of booked or we're sort of subconsciously shaped and molded into a particular trajectory that we may not even want, we may not even want to do. Like I know for me, when I was growing up, I really wanted to write and I wanted to major in English. And my mom was like, no, you stay on that computer. You're going to do something with that computer. Like you're going to major in something with that. And I liked web design, but like, I also went to a small liberal arts college and this was in the, oh my God, I'm dating myself. This is in the nineties and they didn't have web design. So I was like, oh, I'm going to be a computer science major. And that was not web design back then. I mean, we're talking 1999, 2000. That was not web design. That just, that curriculum did not exist. You learned it on your own and you just kind of hope to make a way for it. Like it wasn't something you went to school for. But I say all of that to say college is really that time where you're able to branch out and see where your interests take you. I mean, there's very few places outside of that particular type of institution where you're allowed to explore and play and do different things. And it won't have like a detriment on your status as a human in this capitalist world. You know what I mean? Totally. And anyway, just like, I knew it. I guess I felt it then that that's what it was for. My parents were like the tuition money, four years. So explore all you want within that tough time. So I felt like there's a ticking time bomb. And I also was like, I was one of those kids who was like I literally cannot go back home after college. Like I can't with my parents. I am an only child who like is just constantly being helicoptered, but I need to live elsewhere for all of us. For everybody. And so I really need a job. I need a job that pays me enough to leave. And so yeah, I moved to Boston. So my school's in Massachusetts. I ended up moving to Boston right after college and lived there for quite a bit. But yeah, college is an interesting time. And I loved school. I was one of those kids who loved school. When I was younger, I looked forward to going to school. I think part of it was being an only child because like I make all these designs and stuff. And like the only person looking at them was my dad. So like, or friends who came over on vacation. I was so excited to go to school and get like affirmation from like teachers.
Capstone's Jared Asch Welcomes Loella Haskew and Cindy Darling of Walnut Creek
"Jared Esch, the host of The Capstone Conversation. Today, we are joined by not one, but two awesome women from the city of Walnut Creek. And we are going to hear about what inspired them to run for city council. What are some things that they want to encourage in other candidates who are considering to run or not to run as you make the decision ahead of next year's elections? And that applies to people throughout the whole East Bay area. That's not just here in Walnut Creek. So hopefully their message will resonate with people throughout. So first thing we will do, Mayor Pro Tem Luella Haskiw, do you want to go ahead and tell us a little bit more about yourself? In my career, I was a CPA specializing in tax, but I also did family law consulting and other business consulting. And I was inspired to run for a couple of reasons, one of which is I was close to many of the people who were on council and I just absorbed a lot of what they could accomplish by talking to them and watching them work. But also, I believe that we were going into an interesting economic cycle and maybe somebody who had my experience would be a good addition to the council. And our next guest is Councilwoman Cindy Darling. Cindy, tell us a little bit about your background and what convinced you to run. Well, I'm one of the newest members of the council. I was elected in 2020. Before that, I'd served 10 years on the planning commission for Walnut Creek. So I'd seen a lot of the issues that were working in the development end of things kind of bubbling up that were going to council. And I was interested in having a bigger voice on those than you just have a planning commission. I'm also a small business owner here in the city, and I spent most of my career working on really tough, naughty environmental problems around the Delta endangered species. And I felt like I developed a lot of skills there in helping people work together and solve problems creatively. And I wanted to take those skills and bring them to the council and help move Walnut Creek in a great direction. That's great. I appreciate that. Luella, you've been mayor two times, including 2020 during the start of the pandemic. Pandemic issues, businesses shutting down and then lots of looting here in Walnut Creek. What was it like to be mayor during that time? Can I say that the first round was was sweet. I really enjoyed the first time when it wasn't quite so stressful. But I will say about 2020, whenever I've talked to anybody who have had been mayor in Walnut Creek the last year to have been assigned a job with mayor, there were so many issues. We had a police shooting that was under scrutiny. We had looting. And I'm not even sure anybody knows to this hour what triggered the big looting that was at Broadway Plaza. It could have just been the gangs that were beginning to form and take over other places. But we forgot about Walnut Creek has some really nice high end stores to do. And then they all came. I don't think it had anything to do with the political choice. Nevertheless, it was incredibly damaging to the people who were at Broadway Plaza and it didn't stop there. Other people were involved in it. I make a joke about the fact that when George Floyd had been killed and people were really involved in making protests, a whole group of people showed up at nine o 'clock at night on a Wednesday and had a riot in our front yard doing a significant amount of damage to our garage doors, burning flags, scaring the bejeebers out of our neighbors. The police did call us and say, get out of the house. So we were safe, but it was an ugly experience for the neighborhood trying to find the best of the worst. We did have to buy a new garage door and we now have a battery pack up. And then I made it onto the news the next day. So good spads, but it was tough and the fiscal issues were tough. We started out with anticipating a comfortable excess budget. It turned out that when everything had to close up, sales tax went away and then we had to figure out what to do about that. And we got lucky that we came upon the pop -ups, the restaurant pop -ups, and we tried every way we could to save all the businesses, did away with our now famous parking meters and let people park. There weren't that many people using the parking meters. And so it was a very difficult time. Nevertheless, a sense of proportion, a great council, a great staff got the city through probably one of the most difficult years the city had to survive.
Trump's Attorney Alina Habba Talks 1st Amendment Rights Violations
"He is, Dan Bongino. All right, I should have told you about it in the last segment, but I'm really happy to have a guest. I want to get right to her because she's kind of tight on time right now. One of Donald Trump's attorneys, you've seen her on TV, on Fox and elsewhere doing a great job defending President, former President Trump. Alina Haba. Alina, thanks for spending some time with us. I know you were on a long line here, so we appreciate it. Of course, anything for you, Dan. Thanks for having me. You're the best. It was great seeing you UFC, at the by the way. But let me get right to it. Mark Levin put out a great tweet the other day. I just tweeted it about all of the rights President Trump doesn't seem to have in what we thought was a constitutional public. Let's go through them one by one. I mean, you guys don't seem to have First Amendment rights, Alina. These gag orders for a man who is the leading and likely Republican nominee for president while he's running for president and being attacked on the police state running against the police state seem like their political orders and not effective judicial legal ones. Well, that's right. That's 100 % right. And then if you had any question about it, we had to take the last one where they actually gagged me as well as the president and said that I couldn't even make objections in court. I couldn't make objections in court where my job is to object, is to protect the president. I was gagged. And the fact is we took it up to the appellate division. We won. We had it stayed. And now we've submitted papers explaining how completely unconstitutional it is to take anybody's First Amendment right. Political speech is overtly protected on a higher level than anything else. And they are trying to take the leading candidate's voice away and they're trying to take his lawyer's voice away,
Brittney Sampedro on Husband's Line-of-Duty Cancer Diagnosis in Colorado
"So lymphoma is a very common cancer in the fire service, right? I did a little deep dive, maybe not super deep dive, but I definitely looked at some of the statistics for firefighters specifically. It's crazy. If you ever research it, which I'm sure you probably did at this point, the female firefighters, I did not know how like a 600 % increased risk of breast cancer. That's wild. Wow. And then firefighters have obviously a significant increased risk of cancer as they progress throughout their career. So at the 20 year mark, gets a little more at the 30 year mark, it gets a little more. So cancer is not uncommon in the fire service at all. But you said that the department specifically would never say for certain that it was because of his exposures to chemicals on the job or their gear containing the PFOAS. So was he eligible for any kind of benefit or anything from job related cancer? It's not covered under like a workman's comp type of thing. Colorado has something called the Colorado Cancer Trust. So it's departments that elect to put money into an account that say like, there's an eligibility criteria. He had been a firefighter at that point in 2019 for 10 years. So he was eligible to say like, yes, he's had enough exposure to have been at risk to have this type of cancer that is known or more common for firefighters. So lymphoma was on there. I know testicular cancer is a big one too for men. I didn't know breast cancer for women, but there is an eligibility criteria. They don't come out and say that this is work related. And the department and the everybody who works for Greeley Fire was amazing. They all covered his shifts. So he was able to go through treatment. He had to step offline for a while. And then when the pandemic hit, he kind of was forced to sit at a desk for a little bit just because his immunity was still really low. But I don't even think that there was something written out that like, what happens if a firefighter has cancer? It was just kind of like the guys, everybody at the department banding together and being like, I got your shift. I got your next shift. And they got it all figured out for us. But there was never like a, like, this is work related is workman's comp. It's a, it's a work related issue. It was kind of a separate, you know, like having the cancer trust and then having the Terry Farrell fund reach out to, knowing that it could be a job related cancer. So Colorado is not a presumptive cancer state then. Yeah, that's what it sounds like. And it's crazy to me that in 2023, after all of these studies that there are States that don't have that presumptive cancer legislation. It blows my mind.
"Give the Bread Dough to the Baker, Even If He Eats Half of It"
"The value of expertise in a world brimming with DIY tutorials and a do -it -yourself culture, the age -old adage, give the bread to the baker, even if he eats half of it, resonates with timeless wisdom. This proverb underlines a fundamental truth, the importance of entrusting tasks to those who are skilled in their respective fields, even if it means incurring higher costs. The cost of amateur work attempting to lead to subpar outcomes, additional expenses, or even catastrophic failures. For instance, a homeowner might attempt a complex plumbing job to save costs, only to create a bigger issue that requires professional intervention. This scenario illustrates the hidden costs of amateur work, which can often exceed the expense of hiring a professional from the outset. The baker's half, a fair exchange the just a monetary cost but also represents the value of expertise, experience, and the assurance of quality. When we pay professionals, we aren't just paying for the physical labor or the end product. We're also paying for their years of training, their specialized tools, and their ability to foresee and solve complex problems. In the professional sphere in the professional world, particularly in fields like medicine, law, or engineering, the stakes of amateur intervention can be extraordinarily high. As a physician, for instance, I understand the critical importance of specialized knowledge. In healthcare, entrusting a complex medical procedure to a generalist rather than a specialist can have dire consequences. Economic implications While it might seem cost -effective to cut corners by not hiring professionals, the long -term economic implications can be profound. Businesses that skimp on expert input might face operational failures, legal challenges, or reputational damage, all of which can be far costlier than the initial savings. Conclusion The essence of the proverb, give the bread to the baker, even if he eats half of it, is not about literal bread or bakers. It's a call to acknowledge the value of professional expertise and the wisdom of investing in it. Whether in our personal lives or professional domains, this principle guides us to make decisions that prioritize quality, safety, and proficiency over short -term savings. In the end, the extra cost paid to a professional is not just an expense, it's an investment in quality, peace of mind, and ultimately, success.

Finding Your Source of Confidence, Strength and Security
"Extremely important to be confident. You know, they say the difference between a confident person and an arrogant person is that a confident person has nothing to prove, but an arrogant person appears to have to prove that they're confident. Isn't that funny? Now you got to know who you are. You got to know what you want to do and you got to figure out how to do it, but you got to be confident. And it's not that kind of confidence where you fake it till you make it. I mean, you've got to be confident. You know, you've got to be confident and I can make this thing work. When my phone didn't ring for two weeks, I was still confident I could make this thing work. At the time, all I had to do was just go out and work harder and meet more people and make my phone ring and that's what I did. So I also had, I had personally, my strength came from my faith in Jesus Christ. That's where I get my strength today from my faith in my Lord and Savior. And that's not for everyone and that's okay, but you've got to get your strength from something or someone in order to make it through the obstacles and the failures you're going to have. So, you've also got to be secure in being who you are at any time in your growth. You know, when I started joining some groups and I was just doing somewhere around 400 ,000 a year and I was joining groups sitting at tables with guys that were doing 4 million a year or 2 million, 3 million, 4 million, some higher than that, I still had to be confident sitting at that table. You know why? Because I realized everybody at that table started somewhere and I was okay with where I was. Now, I wanted to be larger for sure, but I was okay. I was a sponge around that table. I was learning and they learned a few things from me, but I was learning. And if you take a quick look at some very, very successful companies and the owners and founders of the company, you'll find they started with very little too. So let's take a look at them right now. Put them up on the screen. Let's take a look at Steve Jobs. I mean, Steve Jobs started in his dad's garage, as you know, if you've watched any of the Steve Jobs movies. How about Elon Musk? Take a look at that guy. He started in a small office in his house. And then there's Jeff Bezos. Jeff Bezos started... Look at that office. I mean, he started somewhere. I mean, Amazon wasn't an existence. It wasn't around. It wasn't... He started it. See, he started small and started selling books. You know why he started selling books? Because he figured it out that books could be shipped for about the same price. So it was an easy shipping. And then he went to CDs and DVDs, which was actually easier shipping. So that's what he started with and why. Isn't that kind of funny? And then of course, you know where Amazon's at today. Okay. So everybody starts somewhere and normally it's pretty small. So long story short, you got to be secure where you're at in your growth.
Gun Confiscation in Biden's America: Will You Be on the List?
"Who have 100 ,000 followers. I'm not even mentioning their names, but just imagine for a second you garner 50 thousand followers. You're Joe Smith. You've got a regular job, living a decent life with your two kids and the dog, whatever it may be. And all of a sudden you start posting about and Biden wins, God forbid, in 2024, you start posting about Hunter Biden's crack problems and his paintings and money laundering. Oh, next thing you know, look, you get a knock at the door. We'd like to talk to you about these Twitter posts, by the way. You have a gun, son of your business. Well, actually it is our business. You have a gun. We'd like to see that. Next thing you know, you get some kind of flag red against you. Your guns are confiscated. look, Oh, they find a gun in your house and all of a sudden they make up some phantom menacing thing. Oh, he lunged for it. Meanwhile, you were seven rooms away while they're in your house. This is what worries me. They will use the gun list as a way to target their political opponents. Not that they're going to confiscate every gun. There's no way. They have no chance. But how would they do that, folks? And now let's play a little interactive game. But, Dan, I've listened to your show before. It's illegal for the federal government to create Yes, correct. It's also illegal for the federal government to use tax dollars to pay off people's student loans. But they do that. There's always a workaround for tyrants. And the workaround for the tyrants is the background check system. The federal government wants to desperately compile a list of everybody that's gone through a background check for a firearm. So they have a list of every firearm and who bought it. The problem, ladies and gentlemen, is the mandatory background check is only for sales from FFLs. It's not for private. So Mike if or I were to give away a firearm to, say, our daughters or sons, and they're not prohibited possessors, the government son of the government's business, your gun, you can give it to whoever you want, as long as it's the law. They want
Jared Asch Talks With Chris Whitmore of the Richmond Promise
"I am joined by Christopher Whitmore of Richmond Promise. And Chris, first, tell us a little bit about your background and how you came to Richmond Promise. And then tell us, what is the Richmond Promise? Absolutely. First off, thank you for inviting me on the podcast. Really great to be here and have this conversation. So I was raised here in the city of Richmond. I still live in Richmond, and growing up here in our community, like so many other young people, I wanted to enter into a career pathway and build an adult life in which I could support the Richmond community and try to make this city, this community, the kind of place that I always envisioned it to be, which is a place where everyone can thrive. Everyone can feel welcome here in Richmond, feel like they have opportunities from the city, from the community to be who they want to be, to contribute to this space and to make this city better for everyone. And so with that really broad, general goal in mind, I decided at a very young age, elementary school age, that I wanted to be a public official when I grew up. I wanted to work specifically in the mayor's office of the city of Richmond when I grew up. And my godmother, Erma Anderson, was mayor when I was in elementary school. She was the first African -American woman elected mayor of the city of Richmond. I grew up with folks like John Gioia, who's our county supervisor and has been our representative for several years on the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors and several other folks who really inspired me to want to build out a career in public service. And so with that in mind, I went off to college. I went out of state to Webster University in St. Louis, Missouri. I studied political science with an emphasis in public law. After graduating from Webster in 2014, I moved to Washington, D .C., where I was accepted into a congressional fellowship. And through that fellowship, I worked in the office of then U .S. Senator Bill Nelson's office of Florida. I moved back to Richmond in December 2014 and got my first job, first full time job working for Congressman Mark DeSaulnier, who at the time was the representative, newly elected representative for California's 11th congressional district. I had the privilege of working as an outreach coordinator in his Richmond office, which is actually just down the hall from where my current office is today. A year later, 2016, I got to accomplish that childhood goal of mine of working in the mayor's office. I worked for Mayor Tom Butt, starting off initially as his director of community engagement, later promoted to be his director of policy and strategy. After about two years in that office, I went over to the city and county of San Francisco, where I went to the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission and worked on their policy and government affairs team. And for about a year and a half, I wrote, along with my supervisor, all of the water, power and wastewater legislation for the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. And I'll speed up the story. So about a year and a half later, I came back here to the city of Richmond and served as Tom Butt's chief of staff for exactly two years. And two years ago, October 4th, 2021, I started as Richmond Promise's second executive director. And it's been a great journey over the last two years, and I was really inspired to make the transition from the mayor's office to Richmond Promise. Just thinking back on my experience growing up in Richmond, having a goal to go to college at a young age for the sake and purpose of really accomplishing my career goals. And just being reminded constantly that there are so many other young people in Richmond who have educational and career goals for themselves. And those young people also deserve to have really strong support systems in our community to help them go off and do the things that they want to do. And I came over to Richmond Promise to strengthen that support system for our entire community.
Guest Host Rich Zeoli Unpacks the Latest Elon Musk Attack
"Media matters executed this plot in multiple steps as x's internal revealed first media matters access accounts that have been active for at least 30 days passing x's add filter for new users media matters then exclusively followed a small subset of users consisting entirely of accounts in one of two categories ready category number number one those known to produce extreme fringe content and category number two accounts owned by twitter's big name the end result of that is the algorithm keeps showing them extremist lunatics on the platform and also their biggest advertisers that's what the algorithm is showing them now there are not a lot of extremist lunatics on the platform there are 500 million users the amount of actual extremist lunatics on there is very small small very it's like 0 .0 percent to quote dean but the algorithm does its job so it shows those accounts because they're following them and then it shows the big the advertisers then what they did was a feed precision for the single purpose to produce side -by ad slash content placements that it could screenshot in an effort to alienate advertisers there are various programs that allow you to see multiple tweets values a program called tweet deck so I can keep tweets open and I can scan different accounts I can know if somebody's talking about me I can you can use platforms like that you can see multiple tweets that's essentially kind of similar so they would have the column of their lunatics and the column of their of their advertisers
Media Matters Tries to Destroy Elon Musk's X
"Linda Yaccarino said, if you know me, you know I'm committed to truth and fairness. Here's the truth. Not a single authentic user on X saw IBM, Comcast or Oracle ads next to content in the Media Matters article. Only two users saw an Apple ad next to the content, at least one of which was Media Matters. Data wins over manipulation or allegations don't mean manipulated stand with X. Yeah, this is a multidimensional hit job. And they're trying to go after Elon personally and criminally. They're trying to go after his liberation of the platform, all because Elon has now become a serious threat to the regime, to the unit party and the left by allowing us to speak, by allowing us to challenge preexisting orthodoxies, allowing us to incubate elite opinion in a way that the bad guys don't like. And so, you know, Michael, talk a little bit more about Media Matters. I don't know if they've targeted you. You know, they come after us quite a lot. Who funds these guys? It's it's it's a great question. You know, we see Rumble, we see X, you know, they're they're suing intensely. What else do we know about it? Well, we know that their executives make a whole lot of money in order to stifle your freedom of speech. In fact, the CEO, a woman named Angelo Caruso, Caruso makes four hundred fifty three thousand dollars a year. The person who's been in the news all week is actually David Brock. And he's arguably the most ideologically weaponized. He's the chairman of Media Matters, making two hundred ninety two thousand dollars a year in order to stifle your speech. But what's interesting is that you highlighted earlier Media Matters doesn't just not like Elon. They don't like you having the right to speak freely. Their donors and funders rely on them keeping the truth hidden and behind the curtain. The reality is X has been a platform that has provided for millions of Americans to learn the truth of what's happening in society in a way that never would have happened had X been under its formal leadership under Twitter. So we never would have learned about all that happened with the laptop and Hunter Biden. We never would have learned about the malfeasance in Ukraine. We never would have learned even recently about the January six tapes because so much of the effort for releasing the tapes, which I'm glad Speaker Johnson did, happened on X. So Media Matters can't lose their grip on power. Their grip on power relies on you not knowing the truth. And so we're seeing, as you described, this very coordinated hit job from people who are paid very, very highly in order to stifle your freedom of speech. One other thing that I will note is that some of the executives that Media Matters has tried to pull to drop their ads are people like NBC. NBC is a really interesting case because just last week NBC had a journalist of theirs that was defending somebody, an editor in chief of a progressive news site that ended up being outed as a pedophile, is now being charged with child pornography counts in one of the most egregious cases that law enforcement has ever seen in that area. So we're seeing that this virtue signaling is really just meant to target you. They don't want you to speak freely. And even these advertisers are backing people that are corrupt and dysfunctional. And yet Media Matters is silent on it. So Media Matters hasn't called out NBC about that, but they'll gladly call out NBC on a fake story that is not rooted in real data. And I'm glad that X ultimately is calling it
The Department of Defense Declares War on Conservatives
"Our military is in bad shape. We are being infiltrated. Our country is being infiltrated by the Marxists to destabilize the country. And you think about the one place that we should really be careful not to allow the capturing from the Marxists is the military. Who fights the wars? Who keeps the country safe? The U .S. dollar is largely based on our ability to win wars, aircraft carriers, missiles. The greatest fighting force the world has ever seen. Now, we've allowed woke elements to come in to the military. The whole trans thing, the repeal of don't ask, don't tell. We've always said, well, you know, it's okay. We have to make it more inclusive. And never once did we ask the question, are we trying to have the military be better at what they're supposed to do? Which is to kill our enemies and win wars quickly and have as few of our own people die. So breaking news story that is extraordinary and it's just yet another piece of evidence of what our military has become. Our military has become a major college campus with missiles. It's a college campus on an aircraft carrier by other words. This last weekend, you know Tyler Boyer, he shows up on our show quite often. RNC committeeman, very mainstream thinker, political strategist, runs Turning Point Action, does a great job. I've been working with Tyler for almost nine years, nine years in January. It's amazing. He started as a entry level employee with us at Turning Point USA. He's a father of three. Really scary guy, right? RNC committeeman for Arizona. He spoke at an event this last weekend in North Dakota. Great American. So I hope if you are in the Dakotas, especially North Dakota, listen carefully. Tyler spoke at a Dakota Patriot rally in Minot. I think I said that right. I never can say it's a tough pronunciation. Minot, North Dakota. You guys can correct me freedom at charliekirk .com. Okay, Minot, North Dakota. And nearby in Minot is an Air Force base, one of the largest Air Force bases in the country. Now mind you, the leadership of our government doesn't really care that the Chinese are buying up land near this Air Force base. But they are worried that the members of the Air Force base might attend a Turning Point Action event. This is breaking news. This is huge stuff, everybody. The leadership, not some sort of low Grundoon. The leadership at the Air Force base in North Dakota sent a text message to service members to warn them of the dangers of being near a downtown rally that featured Tyler Boyer from Turning Point Action. This is from the leadership from the Minot Air Force base. Leaders, please exercise caution if downtown this weekend, reads the text message. Be careful and reach out to anyone with concerns. At issue was the Dakota Patriot rally at the State Fairgrounds in Minot. And the text warned personnel to be cautious because rally goers could be confrontational to military members. What? It also said that their promotions might be put in jeopardy. Listen, leaders, please exercise caution downtown. Please pass along to your team. We got word of an event at Fairgrounds downtown. Its guest speaker is from an alt -right organization called Turning Point Action. Please advise your folks if they are going. This is the U .S. military that is focusing their time on when people that are off duty, whether or not they want to go to a political rally. This is your military that was once led by General Mark Milley says he wants to understand white rage.

Uncovering Repressed Anger: How Food Became My Only Comfort
"I'm going to give a couple of quotes from your writing that are really pretty profound and then we're going to talk about some of the recovery work you did at Shift. You say, food was my friend, my lover, my companion. I could always rely on food to be there and comfort me when I had no one to turn to. And you said, food helped me to feel calm, normal, accepted, loved and enough. I was raised to not show anger, to be seen and not heard. A woman's place is in the home, raising a family and obeying the husband. I felt my purpose was to take care of others and not consider the cost to myself. There were decades of repressed anger and resentment and I used food to help me cope with all of life's ups and downs. So yeah, food's our friend. It's the thing that doesn't argue back, you know, so we can rely on it, right, and it works. I had no idea how angry I was through all of that and it was only in recovery and working the steps and coming to see what my life was like that I was able to start doing some of that recovery work because that's why I went to the food, all this emotional. So I just thought I was an emotional eater. We'd hear about it so often in magazines and television, you know, you see the girl that had the breakup and you'd see her eating that pint of ice cream and it was normalized that that's what you did when you had extreme emotions that it was okay to go to food. So I didn't realize until I did get into recovery and learn about food addiction that there was something different about me specifically when it came to food, that this was not really normal. I knew that the way I ate was not normal but I didn't know why it wasn't normal. I just kept thinking I had a lack of willpower, that I just could not do what other people could do so I kept beating myself up because I couldn't do it. Yeah, talk about the anger and resentment. So you probably didn't realize you were angry of all the years of things that had occurred with you and I would assume that in shift with some of the emotional work they do there that you found out, yeah, I'm angry, I've got resentment. How did you get in touch with that and how did you work through it? Well the first intensive I went to that was Esther's intensive led by Amanda at shift. On the first day she asked me how I was feeling and I totally blanked out. I had no idea what I was feeling. I had never tapped into emotions at all. So she literally had to list are you happy, are you sad, are you angry and I thought what does that mean and then I thought oh yeah I'm sad and then the anger. Then when I really started tapping into the anger that's what really bubbled up because I never had an opportunity to explore any of that anger. It was always shoved down especially with the food because I wasn't allowed to speak about it. So that was really very instrumental but it still took Amanda repeating over and over again different emotions that it was possible to have before I could relate to actually having those emotions. What did you find that you were angry about? I was angry about a lot. I was angry at myself for putting up with so much. I'm very co -dependent so I put up with a lot of stuff. I always put my family, my friends, my job, everything went first before me but I was also angry with my parents, I was angry with my spouse, I was angry with employers. I was just one really angry person and I never realized it until I got into recovery. I thought I was a martyr. I thought I was self -sacrificing to do for everyone else when in fact it was I just wanted them to do what I wanted them to do. I wanted to control them so I didn't have emotion. If you did what I told you to do I wouldn't get upset. I wouldn't have to eat this food. You're the reason I'm eating all of this stuff because I'm an emotional eater.

And i'm sure you do so many people wanting to get into the business of being an agent. I you know and i answered on the football side on the baseball side. I guess i'd ask you two questions. How has the business of being a baseball agent changed through your many years in business and economic last. What would you tell the young person trying to baseball agent in terms of best way to get into the business and be successful. Yeah i get this question. All all the time as well angie. I think primarily. Because i'm also a law professor at uc berkeley. So i get it from a lot of my students. Their students elsewhere. Who who will contact me and you know it's interesting it since i was in law school today. It's it's become way more popular something that way. More people focus on. How do i get in this business. How do i become an agent and my advice is really simple. It's you know. I think that during this formative time whether it's in college in law school or in graduate school or in your first jobs i think the focus needs to be on learning the skills the type of skills that will allow you to perform at a high level when you're lucky enough to have an athletes say they want to represent them. So i think that's the fundamental thing i think that's a point that most a lot of agents forget you know. Our focus is pretty much seventy percent of the time on trying to get clients to represent But what we need to have is a base of knowledge and experience that allows us to represent those players at the highest level so my focus is always on get your education get your degree get a graduate degree of get work experience. That's relevant that's going to allow you to really excel and do great things for the athletes that represent you and i also tell them to get involved get involved is particularly in a nonprofit or charitable endeavors. That are important things that they're involved in Get involved try to try to do good acts the way they're doing good. Act the lineup with them. Try to increase your your network of professionals in.

And when we promised them like this, we'd lock them up before all the other people walking down the street with shovels will sell them and I said to myself, how many times a season will it snow? Mm. In order for me to be efficient back to the half hour. I figured I needed a snowplow. I don't have money. How do I buy a snowplow? I have to take alone. Me. They're gonna have to borrow from the bank or ask my parents to lend the money and I do the math. On my snow plowing. I figured with supply a small wage from my assistant. A tiny amount of money for me and I'd be paying off the loan, but I would only snowplow at the end of the day. No, I kind of like this idea. But I started to think even further. What do I do? I have this plow. It's not gonna snow five times 10 times for the season. I buy a plow. It's a $500. I'm not gonna pay it off. And I start to think. Well, there's another attachment I saw when I buy the plow that will mow the grass. And then all of a sudden it occurs to me in the winter, I could snowplow and the summer I could cut the grass. So I go to the bank and I said the bank. You know what? I want to buy some attachments for my business for my snow plow right now I'm doing snow. I'm going to start doing cutting grass this summer. Would you lend me the money to buy the equipment to cut the grass and it comes with the news device to do the cutting, and it has that bag in the back to pick up the grass as you cut it. No, I'm an entrepreneur. First thing I do is I think, where am I gonna get customers for grass? So the first thing I do is I go to my snow customers. Now, most of them already have someone who cuts the grass. So I tell my assistant to go out there every day and start finding us new customers. Now I have to pay the bank. I have to pay my assistant. I have to get an accountant now because I have to pay tax on whatever we collect. After all, sudden done, I'm working harder and smarter than I thought was humanly possible.

When you're in business, the government still take their pound of flesh and taxes from them. You know what Talking. Honestly, that's not me. Yeah. My first job was shoveling snow when I was 14 years old. And yes, I learned how hard it is to make a living. I've always been a salary guy. I'm a salaried man. I work for a company. That company makes huge investments in plant and equipment in people and advertising in order for them to accomplish what they need to accomplish. And I know that if I work hard and smart, we do what was asked of me. I have a chance. Would go to work before the sun rises and I get home after the sunset. I was smart. I have performed Others around me. I was curious. I read a lot. I listened. I learned Every Czech I earned was taxed. I pay payroll taxes, Social security tax health hacks. I couldn't believe how much was taken out of my paycheck. I couldn't complain. I didn't have cash. My pay was an open book for the government. They took what they wanted. Not top of that. Everything I purchased house I paid mortgage taxes, real estate taxes. School tax. I'm still paying school tax long after Justin, my other son have finished their educations. Every meal I eat out. Every gasoline bill. Every heating bill, every water bill, I'm paying taxes on that. And not only to pay my bills, my bills or taxes. Well, every piece of clothing I buy every shoe I buy. Everything.

Well, I work for venues and most of my career, and I know the company. Company was built on innovation. Fashion is a given. But innovation is something that someone needs a vision. The people have been using have always had it from the beginning to now. And you said, makes a product with a flex collar. The column moves with you. It's incredible how comfortable that collar is particularly in a dress shirt because over time The fabric shrinks gets tight around the collar, but not van uses Flex scholar. But the newest innovation is something that I find incredibly interesting stain shield. I know for myself my best items. The things I love the most.

"Certain coaches are okay with that, like huge action. But that Cleveland Browns job there was no chance of them being successful, and we all knew it. It was it was like he was just there to fill the role, but he was also a head coach. Prior to that he was with exactly so he was so he didn't need to different a different path, right. But if it's your first job, and you're likely going to be judged by this and forever E. I don't know if Eric the enemy looked at some of these opportunities, which, by the way, none of them were like so bad that you look at him and say we're never gonna win. We're gonna be you know, two and 14 for the next three years. None of them seem like that. Maybe Detroit but that Z. I feel like that's a worthwhile rebuild, especially with all the assets that you're gonna gain, especially that they now have that they traded Matt Stafford. I can't. I can't say for certain that he did. He turned down any teams. But that's the only thing that makes sense to me why he doesn't have a head coaching job because he said, You know, this isn't right for me. But we don't have any confirmation or you. No proof of that. I feel like we would have known that me to meet with me to agree which wide? I don't think that he turned down now. Do you mean an interview or actual offer? No. An actual offer way would that we would know or or, you know this isn't right for me. You guys don't even need to offer me type of thing. But here's the thing. We never heard it all. He hasn't got an offer. No, I don't like. Forget forget, you know, get the job. He hasn't gotten an offer yet, as far as we know, And that's what's egregious. You know, I got to tell you the point that you made and it was very astute one and I thought the same thing. When I listen to this before the show, Obviously, Santa and D cells sends us the sound and it's on our slack channels. I listened to it and you know, before we go on the air to see how we're gonna frame this where we're gonna go That's the first thing I thought of like it's not comfortable to say, but it's been out there that well, you know, maybe there's an interview to, uh maybe the guy's not really in control of his words. You know, a lot of stereotypes thrown out, you know, I mean, you hear that, at the end window is impossible to ignore. And then you hear that, and it was to sink. It was in control. The messaging was on point It was it was, it was using leadership confidence but not arrogance like that defies Some of the theories out there about about not great, but it's a small sample. It's a little sound bite, but that device that least shoots down or challenges Ah, lot of the thoughts about the enemy that are out there that have been permeated for years. Now I agree with you. Honestly, it's the first thing I thought of what I heard. And in the end sounds like Andy Reid after it's all said and done. Andy Reid's gonna, He said. Look, I want to. I want somebody to tell me why my offense of coordinator enemy doesn't have a head coaching job. I just wish he said that during the process during said that, But but I kind of feel like it's not his place. You know what I mean? Mind you've got so much juice. I understand that, But it's not Andy Reid. Not necessarily his place to step into the shoes of and be like a cheerleader for your guy. You gotta let him earn it. On is on his own Now, now he did say it publicly that he should you know, he deserved to be a head coach. And you know, he should be a head coach s o. He was supporting him, but he didn't come out with the Tell me why. He doesn't deserve to be one at the time. So I mean, Thea other thing that we didn't mention Beatty and I think we've said this before. The process is so unfair. Two teams that are successful because you get these offensive coordinators or, you know Assistant coaches who get these interviews who were done early in the postseason or not, even in the post season. It's easy to form a bond with someone when they're available to you. Eric. The enemy just isn't available hasn't been really for the last couple of years because of the chief's success and his his need to do his day job, the best that he can and that that I mean, but Staley was coaching in the playoffs. He got a job. I know it's different, I agree, but it's It's a little bit different. And Staley's You know, he's the newcomer, and he's quite It is. This is what it is. And so I actually like that higher, I think. Still think it'd be really good. You know, I didn't see that coming necessarily. We thought it was gonna be table. He went to school with telescope. But to me, that's gonna BT agree With what you said at the beginning all the hires safe for stereo and Cully and up another five I get man, they make sense to me, but why be enemies left out? It's hard. It's frustrating, even talk about it because, like you know why he's left out, But it just doesn't seem fair. And it doesn't feel like there's an answer. And the last thing you want to do is to try to create this. Feel sorry for Eric. Be enemy. Yes. Pity job. Yeah. You know, you don't want that. You know, he's earned it. He doesn't need our pity. I don't think he wants our pity. We shouldn't. We shouldn't talk about it because it zits so glaring. It's hard not to hear you, man. We could leave it there. Certainly like it's a story until it's no longer story. I said this area I think I met Syriani obviously. Got you, captain. I'm just nodding along. I know what you meant. Eight years Syria, Syria by the job, too, But all right, let's get the update Acts on top of that will come back. Well, he would inbounds out of bounds.

Have they gotten through Because they were already breaking down the doors. And they were if I let me Anderson insert here, and they were telling those unarmed people in front of the doors. They were telling them you better move. You're going to get hurt. You're going to get hurt there. People who got hurt real bad outside. I don't want you to get hurt. But you're going to get hurt. Get out of the way. So understanding that one. They already knew that those guys had guns. She made the choice and it was her choice to climb through that window. She decided that and the on Lee alternative those guys with guns had was to open fire because their job was to protect those people. The other thing is you had a caller that said We were united. This country has never been united and anybody that thinks America was united is it is smoking crashed. We had 100 years of apartheid. We have the civil rights movement and as soon as the legislation was passed People stop talking about a quality for people of color in this country. That didn't mean racism went away, and clearly, it didn't It was systemic and sanctioned by our government for more than 100 years. Just passing laws does not make things change. That's as it is true. It is true Can I think maybe if I can speak up for the other collar, and I never want to put words in somebody else's mouth, But there was a time in this country as divided as we were where there were still there was still more respect for democratic norms. There was still a greater amount of civility. Between political parties anyway, who differed with one another When you're talking about racial divisions when you're talking about the real divisions that inflicted everyday Americans You couldn't be more right. You know, that kind of division has existed throughout our history. I believe that we're seeing great change in that regard, and I think that's what the demonstrations for racial justice were all about last year. And look at how it raised the invective of those people who just cannot stand to see that happen. 80 88 10 is the telephone number Ken. Thank you so much. 80 88 10. Let's try to get another call in here We've got Margaret Margaret, who's calling from Pleasant Hill. Margaret. Hi. Welcome to KGL. Hi. Happy New year to you, too. You thank you. I not only agree with everything you have said all along, but you know what amazes me. Pat is how quickly new stories are for gotten in the heat of the moment. Doesn't anyone remember not got two things I'm going to mention on this The subject. Doesn't anyone remember that within the previous two days before last Wednesday, right wing groups were already recording messages that were broadcast over the air that they were going to fly. A plane into the capital on Wednesday that would put Al Qaeda to shame does no one remember that now? I was afraid of a plane now I know they were speaking metaphorically. They slammed Rioters into the capital. But the other thing is just a few days before Wednesday, Trump did something very odd, very odd that I think security experts refer to as a satellite because it seems to have no bearing on anything else that's going on, and it turns out to be the key to what's going on. He made a public statement honoring a saint of my church ST Thomas Becket on the 850th anniversary of his assassination in the Cathedral of Canterbury and I was scratching my head saying Trump doesn't care about Catholic saints. Why's he even saying this on? Sorry I now understand. He was channeling Henry. The second will No one rid me of this troublesome priest. Did anybody put that together? You don't think I'm so glad you mentioned symbolism and codes Because now I get it. And now I know Listen to what it said. As if it were poetry as if it were symbolism and codes, I think will be a lot better prepared because I really put nothing past him. Yeah, I don't either. I don't either. And, you know, it's funny that you mentioned the threat to find Dr. Fly the plane in I, uh I had really forgotten that and even dismissed it didn't even take it as a legitimate three. I didn't. I took it very legitimately, because I was expecting a plane or helicopters or a drone sort of commandeered by Trump Place. Let's stop calling them supporters. I call them Trump agents. But when I didn't hear a plane, and then all of a sudden I heard the rioters. I thought it was symbolic. They met a human mob was going to be slammed into the capital. But the statement about Thomas Becket, he's channeling King Henry the second. It's perfectly astonishing, and somebody must have told him about that because the man doesn't read. So maybe it's his. What's that guy's Stephen Miller? Maybe Steven Miller is whispering in his ear. You know, the people like Trump always admire the figures in history that did wrong and seemed to not pay a very high price for it. So no, Mike. My point is not to embarrass anybody in the media because I've got other things to think about that. No one in the media has even remembered that those two things happened. And they were clear signals they Yeah, I think you're absolutely correct. And I'm so glad you called in with that, Margaret. I'm looking at a story right now out of the UK, And there's a tweet from the CBS Evening News that they've reprinted. It says, breaking the FBI and FAA air looking into a breach of air traffic control frequencies after a threat was made about flying a plane into the capital tomorrow. The threat is not considered credible, but the breach of aviation communications is alarming. Why wasn't the crap the threat deemed credible? That's one thing that I would like to know why didn't they deemed the threat? Credible did they? Were they investigating it? Where they just trying to say that they so that they could, you know, get a lead on this. Apparently not because it sure as hell didn't do any good. That we ever AP breaking news alert that says Homeland Security is now setting increased inauguration security measures in motion early because of the events of the past week, so they're there now moving up the timeline. Good they need to. They also need to do a briefing with members of the press so that the public knows what is going on. And we need that same kind of briefing from all the law enforcement entities that were involved, including the Capitol police and including the National Guard, You know, we or or secretary defense. I'm fine with that. We need those kinds of briefings to take place. To tell us what they know. And what the public needs to know. The FBI needs to do the same thing.
