A highlight from WINNING BITCOIN TRADES (Top Profit Taking Strategy)
"What's up, everybody? My name is Kelly Kellum. Welcome to Discover Crypto. I'm here to give you a needed public service announcement. It is you don't go broke taking profits. Bitcoin has pumped massively over this last week. Looking here on the chart, we see it's pushed up how many percent? All the way up over 25, 30 percent almost this week alone. If you are trading this market, and I'm not talking about long term investing, if you are trading this market, there is zero reason why at this point you shouldn't have taken some profits off this trade, reallocated it into your long term portfolio, into your short term trading portfolio, and of course, some cash on the side to make sure that you are living on some of these profits. What are profits if you're not taking them out of the market and utilizing them in your life? And so looking at this chart, we see, yes, Bitcoin pumped massively. We also see things like Ethereum pushed up. We see coins like Mina. Look at how large this pump is. In fact, this one far eclipsed what we saw in Bitcoin this week, over 144, 150 percent move. If you traded this, if you traded this breakout, what breakout am I talking about? Well, look at this massive downtrend that we see right here. Let's see if we can find a trend line somewhere within this. There is a trend line right there from point, point, point on this breakout. If you took this trade, great trade. But if you have taken no profits off this trade yet, then this is not a trade. If you're looking for the future, if you're long term investing, great. No harm, no foul. But if you are trading this, you're trying to stack your crypto before this next bull market. Why haven't you taken any profit? The way you really build your capital in this market as a trader is to take calculated moves. Head yourself. Also, use good, healthy risk management. Wait for those trade signals to line up, whether using the BitLab trading stack, whether using Stochastics and RSI and pattern breakouts, whatever you're utilizing, whatever strategy works best for you. You need to also have a strategy to exit the trade. And that doesn't mean you go all in and you pull all out. No, what you want to do is ladder your entries and ladder your exits. So how could we know where to take some profits on this? Let's go over to Bitcoin real quick. Well, zooming out on this chart, you'll recognize this chart I've been using over this last few weeks on Discover Crypto when I'm doing the TA. We got a couple key lines we got to watch for. That's just basically parallel channel we have going to the upside. We broke down from this critical juncture right here on August 14th. This is a very key level. We also see key bounce, key bounce, the formation of this trend line right here all the way up. Where did price action move to? Well, if you took a breakout trade anywhere on this chart, we could see we have a downtrend resistance right here that we did break out of. We did find that confirmation. We want to find those confirmations if we want to stack our profits over time. So we see the move is perfectly calculated. And there's multiple points in here in which I could have seen very small scalp trades and also maybe a little bit more of a swing trade over the course of a couple of days or a couple of weeks. In this case, we see a bull flag. We see a bull flag and we see an explosion right here, which is not at this point is a bit of a bull flag. But when we see this, the measured move on this right here, we see there's a flagpole and look at that. That would have been a perfect opportunity to take a portion of your profits out of that trade in case the market moves the other direction. Similarly, we got this bull flag again. Let's see that measured move. So you should have already had an identified level on the chart that you take some off the table, whether it's 15 percent, 25 percent, 50 percent, you're going to have to determine that yourself based on what your goals are in this market. But on this massive move that we see right here, if you've taken zero off the table, there's no guarantee this is going to go up because nothing in the market ever goes like this up, up, up, up, up, up and away forever. In fact, if we zoom back out and we go over here all the way, let's come look all the way back. Did this go straight up? It did. But then we had the pullback. We had a consolidation. We had a pullback, started rounding and it collapsed. It did not go straight up forever. If we go to another chart, we look at something like 2017 push up, pull back, push up, pull back, push up, pull back. Feels like it's going to go straight up, up and away forever. And what do we get? It moves down almost as fast as it goes up. A lot of times in these markets, if you are not prepared, you can get caught holding the bag while everybody else sold to you to take profits on their good position and you're holding the bag on the way down because you didn't have a strategy. This is all about strategy and how well you can keep yourself in line with strategy. So here's another great example of this parallel channel. We have the parallel channel as well as this rising level of support. You know, on this way up, there should be some some profit taking here, even if it wasn't in your targets, some profit taking, even if this continues up, at least you have some capital from the profits you took on this move in your trade. This again, not a long term investment. If your strategy on this move on a for a portion, an allocation of your longer term portfolio, you set aside for trading and then in your trades, you take profits on the way up and you rotate some of that into your long term portfolio, into your bag so you can take your wife or your boyfriend or your mom out and just show them love. Take care of the people in your life, give to charity, utilize the skills you're using in this market, the skills that you're utilizing to capture money making opportunities. If you never take any money out of the market, if you never rotated into your long term goal, your long term portfolio, what are you in this for? I don't want just to see numbers on my screen go up and say, man, at one point I had not because I've done this before, at one point when you're starting to take screenshots of a trade you just made or your portfolio because it's so high, that's a great indication. If you're not out of that trade, if you're not changing and rotating capital in your portfolio, it's a good indication when you're feeling proud of a move, it's probably a good time to start taking some profits. If we come over here to Mina, how could we known to take profits? Well, one, this is going straight up. Not only did it go straight up, let's look at how big this move was to the downside. That is a 20 % move to the downside. Now using the BitLab trading stack, you can see on this eight hour chart, we have high volume candles. That's what these teal candles are here. It's saying that there's a lot of buying pressure. Then we get a huge wick to the upside. We get a bearish signal right here, part of the BitLab trading stack. This is a BitLab intelligence and we can see we get the yellow candle means stopping volume. Now maybe you didn't get out here, maybe you didn't get out the top, but at this point, we got three key things at play. We have a bearish signal. We have almost a doji shooting stars type of candle suggesting the narrative of the bulls is no longer as strong as it was proceedingly. We see the expansion in bullish momentum. Now we're seeing a very equal battle between the bulls and the bears and stopping volume and a bearish signal, a lot of indications, even if you're not sure, is it going to go down? Is it going to go up? We have this trend line that broke out. It pushed to the upside. We had all the signals that we just went over. But in addition to that, how do I know what the identifier level is to take some profits off of? Well, let's go ahead. We can draw some lines. We can draw a horizontal ray there, draw a horizontal ray right there at this cycle low. We could do right here from this high. We also see this goes all the way from this high, this high, this bounces. And so this gives us an example. If you're not a fan of looking left on the charts, but you can also come over here, find your fib, do a fib retracement from the top all the way down to the bottom. I just want you to notice something. Where do we see? Where do we see that this price reversed at? Right inside the golden pocket, 0 .618, 0 .65. Right here, we can see that the price action pushed right into the zone and got immediately rejected. So once you're starting to pass the 382, the 0 .5 and the 618, you want to watch for an opportunity to get some off the table because this is one of the highest hit rates for where price action goes and pulls back from, finds a little bit of a rejection from. That doesn't mean that it won't continue higher after, but it's a great spot to pull some off the table and reallocate it on a pullback or again into one of those other assets you have your eye on. If you're not feeling incredibly confident about the move of the assets that you're trading, then it's a time to take some profits off the table, put it in your back pocket, rotate it in that other altcoin that's not moving yet. Great way to do this is come over here to CoinGecko. And when you see this listed, we can have it from one to listed basically by the market cap. But you can also come over here to the right to one hour, 24 hours and seven days. You can see, okay, what has performed best this week? Okay. You're not moving into what's performed best. So many new people in this market say, oh, that's performing best, I want to hop on. You're hopping on a train that's about to go off a cliff. You don't do that. Click again. You see the least productively in the last week. Doesn't mean you just go in on these. Then you start looking, digging a little deeper, looking into these assets if you're not familiar with them. Saying maybe there's something in here that has not moved yet. Maybe I can capture that before it moves. But you don't just jump in because it's down. You see it. You identify. This merely identifies an asset maybe you could be looking at. Then you jump into the chart and you utilize your technical analysis, the patterns on the chart. You look into some of the social media. What's going on? Is there anything on the calendar for development or new partnerships? What's going on? And if it hasn't moved, also check. Is there a reason it hasn't moved? Because maybe, for instance, something like Gala, where Gala was performing so well and then all of a sudden the co -founders were all of a sudden in lawsuits with each other. Well, maybe if that's not moving as fast, maybe that means that also may not be a good opportunity to get into. But when we come over here, 24 hours, we see Pepe, Rocket Pool, Rollbit, Chainlink, The Graph all performing very well in the last 24 hours. What's not performing so well? Maker, Mantle, Casper, Filecoin, Flow, OKB. You can see how you can utilize several different tools and just a little bit of diligence to identify where you can get into projects. But remember, you can utilize the capital from your trading when you take profit so you don't have to pull new money out of your wallet to put it in the market and risk more. Put money in the market, make your trades using healthy strategy and good risk management. Identify the areas to take profit. Start pulling some off the table, rotate that capital into your trading portfolio so you have your trading portfolio still growing into your long term portfolio. So no matter what happens with any stupid decisions we make and we all make stupid decisions, sometimes you're protecting yourself and you're protecting your future by taking profits. I just want to make sure every one of you realizes that you have the keys to success in you. And it starts with balancing your ability to hold yourself to a strategy. And if you don't have a strategy yet, tune in here a bit more often, learn from us on Discover Crypto. Head over to BitLab Academy. We've got all the tools, all the strategies, all the techniques for you so we can make sure that you can dominate this market.
A highlight from "I Would List My Home, But I Can't Find A Home To Buy!"
"Welcome to Real Estate Coaching Radio, starring award -winning real estate coaches and number one international bestselling authors, Tim and Julie Harris. This is the number one daily radio show for realtors looking for a no BS, authentic, real time coaching experience. What's really working in today's market, how to generate more leads, make more money, and have more time for what you love in your life. And now your hosts, Tim and Julie Harris. Listeners, have you ever heard this before? Have you ever heard a prospective seller tell you, I would happily list my house with you, but I can't until I find a home to buy. Boy, is that ever a conversation ender. Yeah, I would list my home, but where's all the inventory? You know, sellers can go online. They're searching all the time. Everything they see is pending. There's not a whole lot popping up. I would give you my listing, but where am I going to go? Now, here's the thing, with record low inventory nationwide, realtors seem to be hearing the same thing day in and day out, which we just said, I'd move, but where would I go? For most agents, unfortunately, that's the end of the conversation, simultaneously ending the possibility of taking a new listing as well as facilitating that buyer side. After all, nationwide inventory is at all time lows and according to Altos research, it bubbles up between 400 ,000 and 500 ,000 actives. When you take the pendings out, we're still at least a million listings shy of being in a balanced market. Okay, does not include all new construction, number one, but number two, here's something I want you guys to keep in mind. Your sellers who want to obviously buy something else once their property sells, whether it's more expensive or less expensive, they are, guess what, not worried about the interest rate. That is not what's holding them back. What's holding them back is the lack of something to choose to purchase. That's what their issue is. Why is it not the interest rate? Because most of the sellers in your marketplace, half of which have homes with no mortgages, roughly speaking, and the other half have mortgages where they have 50 % equity. So virtually all the prospective sellers that you're working with don't really care too much about the interest rates because they're going to have so much money down, their payment is not going to be that significant anyway and or they could buy the interest rates down. Do not get stuck in the emotional mental mud believing that this market, especially with sellers, the slowdown is rate driven. It's not. Now, first -time buyers? Yes. I agree. First -time buyers, they are definitely having a mortgage rate payment shock issue and to that, it's just going to get worse because rents are going to increase. So all the while they're hoping and praying the mortgage rates decrease, their rents are going to increase and a lot of times those first -time buyer types are going to be stuck in a long -term renting cycle which can last their lifetime. So we've done lots of podcasts on that, how to present to those types of folks so that they can essentially move themselves out of payment shock and into the reality that housing is expensive and it's not getting cheaper. You might as well own the house yourself versus basically renting it. But again. With regards to the first -time buyer question, but this podcast we're really focusing on, I would list with you, but I'm not convinced that there's anything to buy. I'm not going to sell it just to be homeless. So don't just answer with, yeah, there's really nothing on the market. I mean, everything in the MLS is already pending, Realtors. Stop saying that. I'll put you in my search widget and we'll watch for something to pop up together. I'll drip on you. I'll drip on you. Okay. Well, that's one method of maybe someday possibly finding something for your would -be sellers to buy. You can't end the conversation there and expect to actually do any business. Market forces are working against you. Rates are higher. Inventory is scarce. Add some inflation, the specter of possible recession and overall uncertainty. And now you've got a transitioning market. And if you're just going to roll over and say, well, yep, there's nothing to buy. You're done. You're not actually in real estate when you talk like that. But it's all those points amplified because when is the last time you went to any source, any media source, and they were making you feel optimistic? Never. Never. Right? I mean, everything including alien visitation is now essentially making the headlines. It's discouraging people from feeling optimistic. So you're going to have to understand that most people don't listen to our podcast and don't know the importance of having media -free mornings, media -free days, media -free lives. In other words, purging all that stuff. So you're going to have to remember when you're talking to folks that a lot of times you're going to have to help them move past their hesitance that's being constantly reinforced by their friends, their family, the news media, and all the rest of it. So just keep that in mind. Well, you do have a choice to make. You can either wait for the market to bounce back or you can create your own opportunities by being more proactive. We prescribed the mantra, hope for the best, but plan for the worst. Assume you're not going to wake up to three and a half percent interest rates and double the inventory. That is not going to happen. Back to our conversation with that would -be seller client who won't list with you because they don't want to become homeless. Here are the top five solutions that go beyond waiting and watching for magic inventory to arise. Okay. Good news for all of you. Some of the notes from today's show are down below along with the opportunity for you to explore becoming a Harris certified coach. We informally talked about it two days ago and we have formally now decided that we are going to open up our Harris certified coach certification program again. So if you're interested, and we have not done this for two years, but if you're interested in not just learning how to be a real estate coach but have a real estate coaching business, make sure you click the link below in the show description and fill out the form. We highly are selective who we have as a prospective real estate coach and yeah, it's owners. The process is not just simply by, you know, you're not just going to buy a certificate. You actually have to earn the right to be a Harris certified coach. Our name is on your certification and you have to assume we're going to take that very seriously. So the link to become a Harris certified coach is below or you can just go to Harris certified coach .com. All right, Julie, these are the top five solutions. Solutions to when they say, that's an objection, I would list with you, I would move. But where am I going to go to? Okay, top five solutions so you can still take the listing. Number one, consider building a home instead of chasing after the scarce resale inventory. There are several advantages to this option. First, many builders are buying down interest rates and using their in -house financing. The buyer can lock in a better rate this way, thus giving them lower payments. Next advantage, the house is new. No rehab for them and no inspection nightmares for you. It's all good. Your client can get their home on the market a couple of months prior to the completion and not have to move twice. And finally, when your client builds, they aren't having to compete in a bidding war. It's all good. Now your points were mostly geared towards production builders, but if you're not having a market with a lot of production builders, the big, you know, Epcons and well, I mean, you know. MI and KB homes and all the big ones, right? That's fine. Just go to a builder and most of the country, there are builders that build ones and twos and threes houses here and there on your land. Align yourself with those guys. You can have the same result. Very well put. You have to go look for it. Be proactive. Okay. Number two, consider. And again, these things, these five things are playing into your conversations so that you can counsel with your sellers who your buyers are would be sellers. Maybe they could consider buying first closing and then listing the previous home. Don't assume that your buyer seller prospects won't or can't utilize this option. They may have a down payment saved that's not actually in their home equity. They might use a bridge loan to borrow their equity, close on the next home and then sell the old one. You don't know if you don't ask. The advantage is that your client can make a non -contingent offer, secure their home and deal with their old house later. Make sure that you know lenders who offer bridge loans and understand how to explain this option. There's a lot of those out there. You should at least run it up the flagpole and see if it makes sense. But a lot of people can purchase their next home without actually having to sell a present one. The underlying point of Julie's point number two there was don't assume that your perspectives on finances and risk is the same as theirs because you're not going to approach the perspective seller about purchasing something with all their options. So let them know. You have several choices on how we can move forward, Mr. Seller. Here's one, here's two, here's three, here's four. Which one is best for you? That's the point of this podcast is to have those conversations instead of saying, yep, there's no inventory. We'll just drip and wait for something to drip on you. I mean, what is it? 30 % of all the home sales are it's our new construction, right? And that's going to be at least 50%. It's 30 % and rising for sure. Okay. So number three, and so, you know, some of these, these five possibilities, it also goes to how the seller's mindset is. Are they somebody that has no problem buying first and then selling second? Are they a little bit more risk adverse? So this number three goes to that point. Consider selling first, then renting for a while and taking time to look for the right home. The advantage here is that the seller has cashed out their equity and is ready to pounce on the right home, but without the pressure of organizing closing and possession dates. Who are your go -to leasing agents? Consider both traditional rentals, short -term vacation rentals that may consider a lease, as well as apartment complexes. Many have some great amenities that could work for a short - or longer -term lease while you help your client find the right home to buy. Again, you don't know if you don't run it up the flagpole, do you? Okay, number four, consider getting the seller's home on the market now, but make the acceptance of an offer contingent on seller finding suitable housing. The buyer will probably want a specific time frame, but you can usually get 90 to 120 days to secure the next home for your seller who is now a buyer. Many buyers in today's market are just anxious to find the right home and will be flexible with the seller's situation. It's still, in most places, a seller's market. The advantage to your client is that they won't have to move twice, and you've negotiated for them enough time to look for the next place. A seller lease back to that buyer, the new owner, is another way to handle that. Just depends on the time frame. Okay, so let's give them the sticky details of this one. So if a lot of your buyers are putting enough money down and are paying cash for the house, they can easily do lease backs to the seller. Yeah, they're just happy to get the house secured. And the seller's happy to know what money they're going to have for their next one. So they can do lease backs that might even last a year, right? To Julie's point, they're just happy to have the house. And so you have to have these thoughts bouncing around your head, otherwise you're not going to be able to offer these different options to your prospective sellers. That's right. Well, that's why our coaching clients get a copy of this, so they can turn it into a leave behind when they have these conversations and use it for their scripting. Well, look at that right now. Combine number four with number one, right? Someone's building, it's going to be done in say 12 to 18 months. You can then basically put their existing house on the market, obviously sell it, have the sellers receive the proceeds from the closing. They become tenants of their former house that they owned.

Rep. Chip Roy Reacts to Biden Withholding Monoclonal Antibodies From Florida and Texas
"Is even more horrifying And we have the Montgomery County judge here in Texas, which is near Houston. Who posted on Facebook yesterday, the day before. I'm not sure if you saw it where he right. He wrote out the 2000 Texans that were benefiting from the treatment that they had put in place to have a clinic or set up there to run these mono monoclonal antibody treatment. And it was successful. And this is where the vaccinated and unvaccinated and then now you've got the Democratic leadership in Washington coming in and saying no, no, no. We're going to step in and interfere with the market and create a problem that didn't really exist. And I look, I wrote a letter to the HHS on Monday, lighting them on fire about this and raising this issue up the flagpole and then load the whole We get 24 hours later, they were gonna have a briefing on Friday. We had that briefing today, Mark And I asked twice. I got cut off. And then I got back in Q asking a second time. Hey, how many, Uh, doses do you currently have a supply? How many can be made per month and what's the demand? You tell me the numbers. You show me how there's some massive national shortage that you've got to interfere, and they would never answer the question. Literally, he said. Well, we'll just have to get back to you. The numbers to wait you're stepping in and rationing care. Rationing what Texas can get, and you can't even tell me what the numbers are its political. They started off of saying seven states have 70% of the demand on this stuff and get never mind in January. It'll be 10 different states Mark because we know how this virus works. And yet that's what they're doing. It's political. It's purposeful and people's lives at stake. And they're doing it because they don't want to talk about treatment. Not just this. But after cork wine back when that was more effective. Let me tell you something about, uh Hattrick chloroquine. I've been taking that for months. Have heart disease and asthma. Has an harm me in any way.
First Civilian Flight Departs Afghanistan Following U.S. Withdrawal
"Not sure if we should have seen this coming. I certainly didn't see this coming but look this plane. We're going to see on your screen right here right here. This is a cutter. Airways boeing seventy seven. Excuse me boeing seven seven seven That is the first passenger flight to depart from the main airport in afghanistan kabul airport since. Us troops withdrew from afghanistan last month. The scene at kabul airport today was markedly different from what we saw. Just weeks ago Instead of us marines we had taliban fighters patrolling runways. The talibans white flags or surrounding the airport on those flagpoles the fact that. Us forces are in control. There and the taliban clearly are today. One hundred and thirteen people including americans canadians brits germans ukrainians all left on that cutter airways boeing seven. Seven flight flew out of kabul and landed in doha in cutter. More flights out flights out again have started. Maybe not just this one may be more to come in a statement today. Secretary of state anthony blinken said that today's flight quote was the result of the departments regular close engagement with our regional partners particularly with the cutlery authorities and taliban officials said today that another flight is expected to take off tomorrow that the taliban is expecting to let it go for its part. The biden news station says it won't divulge details about any upcoming flights due to what they called the ongoing terrorist threat to such operations. Clearly it is still a very fluid situation there. But by all appearances the evacuation flights from kabul appear to be back on as of today with the likelihood that more flights will continue at least tomorrow and maybe beyond that and that is something
"flagpole" Discussed on KPRC 950 AM
"Kind of a star. I mean, she was, uh, she is a recurring fictional character from one of the most popular sitcoms of all time and not in every season. No, she's not in every season, Certainly not in every episode. And then there's Sunni Lee, who Olympic athlete just returned from the all around. Champion Olympics gold medal winner all that she great star for about three days. Martin Cove. Play, John Crease in Coburg Chi and Karate Kid, All right, I think we agree that he's a star. Right? Okay, That's four that I've even heard of, and maybe only To that. Would be considered stars out of 15 people, but they're going to call it dancing with the stars. Well, we started talking about Jan Levinson from the office. Michael's girlfriend for a while. Yeah, sure. The part came up about When she was pregnant. Maybe. Or maybe not, with Michael's child and the scene in the show where Michael is going to try to catch a greased watermelon from Dwight because he was practicing helping Jan. Deliver the baby, he was expecting jam to call him. When she was going to deliver in and go to the hospital, and he was going to be there because he wanted to be in on this. He was going to be the greatest dad of all time. And while he's practicing his delivery technique, Jan. Comes into the office wheeling a stroller with her baby in it. She did not only call him when she was going to deliver the baby. She didn't even let him know that she had had the baby weeks ago. Oh, yeah, that was hilarious, and the office was great, but there was so much on that show that wouldn't be allowed today, and it's so much and it doesn't feel like it was that long ago. You cannot take the hilarious black guy from the office. Don't know how George Bush did it when Colin Powell left. Yeah, There's a lot on that show that wouldn't be acceptable by today's standards, And it didn't even leave the air that long ago. Which makes you think, boy. How much has the world changed in how a whole bunch in a very short amount of time? And is there any room bringing it back? No, no, there's not Now let's talk about what you were discussing earlier 20 years since 9 11 Yep, You know, there's a whole list of movies and TV shows even video games where they took out any image. Of the World Trade Center. The twin towers Yeah, the Twins hours World Trade Center. They have gone in and edit it out Any scenes of the World Trade Center. This took a lot of work and a lot of time. All of the sex in the city shows that was many seasons men in black to Armageddon. Kissing Jessica Stein don't know that one zoo lander. The Sopranos. Serendipity? Yep. Uh, there's a friends episode where Chandler joked about a bomb at the airport, so they had to remove that. I don't know if they get rid of the whole episode or if they just took that part out of it. Or if it made any sense, then As Spiderman. Yes. Spider means teaser trailer was removed from circulation 2002, which you know was just less than a year short time right after the towers. Um he was supposed to catch hold of a helicopter with his by the Web and swing between the twin towers, which he, you know? Well, they Computer generated. He did it. They had to cut that whole scene. And instead they had him hanging off of a flagpole, which, by the way, had an American flag hanging from the flagpole. They would have to go back in and edit that out. Oh, yeah, that would have been offensive by today. Just two offensive. And then there were movies and scenes where they added the World Trade Center. Yeah, Like in 2000 and four, the Spider Man sequel, they added the World Trade Center seven is seen at night. And the pictures Spiderman jumping behind the World Trade Center towers is seen when Harry says, Where are you? Yeah, Weird, right? That is weird. They did it. They also did it in Madagascar escaped to Africa contains a segment. We must have missed that one e animals arrived in New York City and the original World Trade Center is seen in the distance. Uh, God, that they want to remove it from some shows they want to intentionally added to others. Okay, so in 2016, they did X men apocalypse And they added the world trade centers to a scene that was supposed to be set in 1983. Yeah. Well, you know, look at matters, guys. And then the TV version of the 1985 back to the future. All the terrorist references were removed and altered completely from several scenes in these. Where were the terrorists from Lebanon? I think Middle East. Yeah. Yeah, we couldn't have that. That's hurtful. The last thing you want to do is hurt a terrorists feelings. No, they were Libyans. I'm sorry. Same thing. Middle East in the exterior Twin Pines mall scene where Marty McFly gets chased by the Libyans. I remember. Clearly the closer shots of the Libyans and of Doc Brown's death scene were completely removed in the scene, where Marty writes a letter in 1955 Doc Brown at a cafe at night that he went back in time. The words by the terrorists were digitally erased from the latter. Wow. Yeah, We don't know how you got killed or why it's just kind of left up to everyone's imagination Now, Okay? Says supposedly, you know, sometimes they'll change them Do, uh, Russians for a while. After the 9 11 thing. They didn't want anybody picking on you know, Middle East terrorists so they'd make them. Oh, Chechens were always popular. Remember Chechnya? Yes. Chechnya those guys, man, They got a bad reputation. All right Back When I first started working in radio, it was right when 9 11 happened because you know that's about how old I am. I would have been 20 at the time. And there was this this list of songs that a major broadcast company that technically doesn't exist anymore because they changed their name. Uh, put out that you weren't supposed to play on the radio, and it included things like the rock band anthrax stuff like that, because they after 9 11 there like these are touchy songs. Why don't we avoid these? And two kids that worked at a college radio station. That list was fascinating. Of course, that's the one you wanted to play and on the list. I'll never forget. Oh, no.

"It's a high tech treasure hunt, using GPS coordinates for hidden containers called caches, and there are more than a million of them across the United States. Sarah Kate Kramer brings us the story of one geocache who in his searches Has had to navigate more than just the terrain Since he started Geo cashing three years ago. Marcelas cad has found a cache every day on his best day, he found 274. Recently he went hunting for a geocache in Austin, and I asked him to record himself on his phone right now we're supposed to be about 22 ft. Away from it. We're in an open field except for like some trees. That's cads 12 year old daughter, Gemma, who was helping him find a cash in the 90 degree Texas heat. I didn't know exactly what it would look like the cash might be a film canister and ammo can Suddenly Gemma spotted a little orange container nestled at the bottom of a trick. Is that it down there? Oh, Yeah, that's totally it. Cats, 10 year old daughter, Zoe, open the cash, and this is hands and ties her in here. Wally pop Yellow star stickers And the log, of course, and the log. Of course. Do you ladies want to sign the log Cad likes taking his daughter's geo cashing. Most of the time he does it solo. His favorite part is how Geo cashing is a way to explore the country. I have seen so many things and I have been to so many places. Places that I wouldn't have gone on my own. I get to have a little miniature treasure hunt every day. But soon after he started cat realized that he was having a different experience and the majority of geo cashes in the U. S. Who are white. I was reading a forum posed where somebody asked. How many times have you guys been stopped by cops? Most? Your catcher said they were rarely, if ever bothered by the police, and I was thinking to myself, Man. I've been doing this six months and I've been stopped seven times, and it's not only the police who questioned CAD. Strangers almost always white often asked why he's poking around their neighborhood. So he's developed some tricks to avoid attention. Here. He is looking for a cash in downtown Austin. I'm carrying a clipboard with me. So you know, they might think that I'm working here. If you look like you're working than people don't tend to pay attention to you. Cad started a blog called Geo Cashing while black to document his experiences dealing with racism during his travels. He's been to every county in Texas, and once he ended up in a park dedicated to the memory of the Confederacy. The geocache was hidden in the bottom of the flagpole, and I'm like, I'm going to have to get this thing out from under the Confederate flag. And I signed it and I put it back so I could get the heck out of there. The cat is actually hoping his blog will encourage more people of color to geocache. There's a certain joy in being black and basically going out into places where you don't see a lot of black people and being able to say I am here whether you like it or not. Marcellus, CAD. His goal is to find a geocache in every county in the United States for NPR news. I'm Sarah Kate Kramer. I'm reaching Bingo. I got it. Mm hmm. This is NPR news.

It's something which is lifted up beyond the horizon in which we normally dwell. I mean after all in the battle or in frankly in the american national anthem.

Why Black Officers Find Breach Of U.S. Capitol Particularly Upsetting
"Law enforcement officers were overpowered by that violent mob in the nation's capital. Last week. Disturbing videos show that police officers were kicked and punched and beaten with flagpoles. One police officer was killed and another later died by suicide off duty. But there were also a few police officers that appeared to sympathize with the mob. MPR's Leila Fadel reports that for current and retired black police officers It was particularly upsetting. Last week sharing Blackman Malloy watched her former colleagues try to stave off Attackers of the capital alone. Black officer heroically facing a largely white mob as they first breach the building. A lot of them felt like they were all all along black when Malloy is a retired U. S Capitol police officer and the vice president of the United States Black Capitol Police Association. Which led a class action lawsuit in 2012 against the Capitol police for alleged discrimination. She's also the lead plaintiff in the historic 2001 class action discrimination lawsuit against the Capitol Police board. Our organization is calling for criminal charges against the sergeant at arms of the House and the Senate, as well as the former U. S. Capitol police chief who resigned after the attack because they loved them unprepared. She spoken to black police officers that were at the Capitol that day. They're traumatized. Some of the crowd called him the n word. Some are injured. They're also scared because they saw a few of their white colleagues show sympathy with the mob. Several Capitol police officers were suspended as the department investigates the attack on Congress, among them the officer who took Selfies with writers and another who popped on a mag, a hat and directed Attackers around the building. Blackman. Malloy says black Capitol police officers told her this about inauguration Day and then now you expect me to go stand beside an officer not knowing whether or not he's one of one of the terrorists, that's what that's what we did. Then Maybe there were some off duty police officers from outside D. C in the crowd. Police departments are investigating, and that's not lost on so many police officers around the country, particularly black police officers who faced discrimination on the force. Carl Shaw sued the police division of the city of Columbus for racial discrimination and settled for $475,000. You have good police also said you have actually saucers, and in my case, if it wouldn't have been for white officers standing up and risking their careers, wouldn't have had a leg to stand on. I just think we need to change the way we police and the hiring practices. Also the settlement, which conceded no wrongdoing included to demand that the retaliation he faced for reporting racism by superior be a fireable offense. Char retires next month. If you're trading black officers this way, What are you doing to the general public? Heather Taylor, recently retired sergeant from the ST Louis Police Department was texting with other black officers as she watched the attack on Congress. She thought about many of our fellow officers who made the assumption that Trump flags meant support for law enforcement, even when the crowds were incited by the president's lies and included hate groups. Meanwhile, black lives matter. Protestors demanding racial justice were treated as hostile. I don't know maybe realize that these people who are extremists who are militia Who are a part of these groups or about civil war. They want civil war They want to do away with the government and law enforcement has hair to him. Taylor most recently headed the Ethical Society of Police, a ST Louis police organization that addresses racial discrimination in the police force and the community. Okay, well, they're gonna shake I'm going to say that these people are going to turn on them that the police are going to see that the same people that you supported over African Americans in black lives matter. You're going to see that it's different that they're going to turn on you. Sure enough, it was worse than what we could ever imagine. In Minneapolis Metro Transit Police chief Eddie Frizzell says he did more planning for the Super Bowl in Minneapolis than what he saw in the capital last week. Now he worries about the expected armed protests around the country. This weekend. I served in Bosnia bright after the war to orange n aside, had taken place and we've seen what tyrannical regime will do to a country in Iraq. And all those experiences are all coming to a head right now. It gives me a frame of reference to take my experiences, and we have to actually apply them to the unknown that we're experiencing right now known that we're experiencing right now. Leila Fadel NPR
"flagpole" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"The approval of the of the secretary defense. Most usually a governor with the neighboring governor could do that. But the mayor of D. C does not have control the guard only the secretary and stuff. So, uh, It was a kind of a crazy back and forth with Hoyer yelling across the room, Tolo. Schumer, who back and forth about We don't have authorization, and our generals are running it up the flagpole Pentagon into the National Guard Bureau in Washington saying Can do we have approval? No. You know, we have confirmation yet. No. On that was back and forth for quite a while. Finally, about an hour and a half later, I'm still in all these decision making processes. The guard is fully mobilized. The state police already defending the capital. And I got a call from the secretary of the Army Ryan McCarthy, who who said it gave us the authorization and Maryland National Guard immediately rolled into the city. We were the 1st 1st guard there. Does your account that there's questions about who should be held responsible for the events that occurred? What should the consequences be? I asked you about the 25th amendment resignation. You made your major position very clear. But in the judicial branch. What role should the judicial branch play here is their charges that should be brought against individuals who Maybe incited this. And who do you think those individuals are? Yeah, I really don't. I don't know. I mean, you mean incited the insurrection at the Capitol. Do you think pretty Giuliani members of the first family President Trump should there be should day bear responsibility for this? Not just through the media, but through Legal action. Well, that's for for the courts to decide. There's no question that I think it's pretty clear that the president and many people close to him did. Uh, you know we're responsible for inciting this mob. But, you know, I'm not a lawyer, and I'm not a judge. I'm sure these are gonna be decisions that are going to be looked at. I'm sure there's gonna be investigations into who these people were. How they got into the capital. Uh, you know, where was the security of the Capitol Police? Uh, you know, there's a whole lot of unanswered questions, you know? Look, this just happened two days ago. Right now we've got to get a peaceful transition of power. That's what I'm mostly focused on whether it's going to be after action reports and we're gonna have to figure out a lot of answers to a lot of questions. People responsible. People responsible for this. Outrageous attack on our democracy are going to have to answer for these for these, uh, these charges, but right right now. My goal is that I have Have the 500 members of Maryland National Guard staying in Washington through the Through the inauguration and try to keep you I had to keep on keep the inauguration safe and assist with the peaceful transition of power on Dino of glad to see the vice president, Pence said. He's gonna be at the Naga. I will as well. On Duh. You know, we're gonna do everything we can to make sure that our democracy functions the way it always does, and always shall. Just to reset here, folks. My name is Kevin. So really, I'm the chief Washington correspondent for Bloomberg Television. And for Bloomberg Radio. We have a great guess. Two's T start things off. Governor Chris Christie is going to join me in the next half hour, but Governor Larry Hogan of Maryland is with us. He is a Republican, and I want to talk about the economy, but just to continue talking about the events. Of today of this week rather and as you as an elected official try to put in perspective, not just the horrific nature of the attack on the capital earlier this week, but political violence, sir. As a whole that has been occurring around the world here in the United States, It feels that it's increased on the pace of it has increased and from a policy standpoint. How do we get back to a place in our democracy? Where that isn't that problem isn't exacerbated. Well, that Zen. Excellent question. I mean, what? What? This was sort of the pinnacle of This is something that we never we never imagined could happen in America. But it's been building for quite some time. And the anger uh, divisiveness. The inflamed rhetoric on both the right and the left. On social media, You know, it's been increasing an exponential pace and in America and across the world. We've all got to figure out what to do about. This is something I've built the my entire career on you. Not only I'm a lifetime, lifelong business guy, but I've been governor for six years. This will be my third president coming in six years. But I I have preached every day for six years, uh, that we need to get to a more civil dialogue to um or that I want to end the toxic. Politics that we have in this country and to try to find a way we have. We have disagreements on. We weigh have different, strong differences of opinion, but we have to get to the Point where we can. We can try to find that middle ground where we could all stand together. We have to find a way to come up with bipartisan common sense solutions. We have to find a way to disagree. Without turning the other side into enemies or questioning their patriotism or attacking them and calling them names. Uh, on social media, and it's something I'm gonna. I'm gonna spend a lot of time working on because I think it's critically important for the nation. And then the remember read over the summer When I went down to Annapolis from Washington, D. C to interview you. It was right at the beginning. Really, of the first beginnings of the lockdowns and the The pandemic and whatnot. I interviewed you on the lawn of the Maryland state Capitol Governor Hogan and we talked about this this theme and and sort of the themes of your career and where the Republican Party goes. From here and so ask you a similar question. Now as you weigh your political future, and the choice is difficult, life changing choices that you're going to have to make, sir. In the next two years. How did the events of this week the events of this year way into your decision making process about whether to seek the highest office in America? Well, you know, this is something that It's just the wrong time to be thinking about what happens in 2024 when we haven't even finished the 2020 election. No, I hear you remember too, you know. We were in the middle of these twin crisis is before this happened before this attack at the very heart of part. Democratic Republic. We were fighting the worst, the worst global pandemic of our lifetime and with deaths escalating, and we're trying to figure out a way to You know, vaccinate hundreds of millions of people and s O. I'm focused, very focused on my very important job As governor of the State of Maryland. It's been a He rolling past year leading the nation's governors through the pandemic.

Requests To Deploy National Guard Initially Denied During Capitol Riots
"Listen to maryland. Governor larry hogan today explaining what happened during the height of the rioting at the us capitol yesterday. Larry hogan is a republican. He's actually one of three republican governors now along phil scott from vermont and charlie baker of massachusetts who have called on president trump to resign immediately or be removed from office now before the end of his term. But just this didn't get a lot of widespread attention today but listen to what we heard. Today from maryland. Governor larry hogan listen to what he described happening in the middle of his day. Yesterday he was at work in maryland. Which of course is just outside of washington. Dc right in the middle of that meeting with our security team. I got a phone call from house. Majority leader steny hoyer. Who was calling me saying that. He and speaker. Pelosi and senator schumer. We're all together in an undisclosed bunker. They've been Spirited off to some undisclosed location that the us capitol. police was overwhelmed that there was no federal law enforcement. Presence and the leader of leaders of congress were pleading with me as the governor of maryland for assistance from maryland national guard and state police. I informed speaker. Hoyer and the other leaders said a force of specially trained riot police equipped to respond to civil disturbances. Along with members of allied and local law enforcement agencies. were already on route to the capital. I also told them that. I authorized the mobilization of the maryland national guard and i was ready willing and able to immediately deploy them to the capital however we were repeatedly denied approval to do so under federal law. The mayor of the district of columbia does not have a thirty the guard and we must receive approval from the secretary of defense before. We're able to send our maryland national guard across the border and to the federal city into the district of columbia so we had a little back and forth trying to get that authorization and approximately an hour and a half later. I got a call on my cell phone. From the secretary of the army ryan mccarthy who gave us the authority that we needed to be able to move into the city the initial contingent of maryland national guard members were the first to arrive in washington from out of state. Okay so that's a remarkable window into what happened yesterday for which we have to think about. What recrimination what what repercussions there will be what consequences there will be. I mean here's congressman the number two democrat in the house under under nancy pelosi. Steny hoyer happens congressman from maryland. Which happens to be the state right next door to washington. Dc steny hoyer is in hiding with the other leadership in the house and senate armed. Mob has taken over the capital of the capitol. Police are overrun. There's no federal law enforcement presence that they can see at all and steny hoyer because he happens to be from maryland. He happens to have the phone number on him of the governor of maryland so that he's hunkered down in hiding under fire and that's who he calls for help governor. Can you please send some troops or something from maryland and maryland. Says sure men governor says yeah. We have civil disturbance trained police. We've got hundreds of guard troops. That are ready to go. Yes just say the word. But he can't just say so on his right. You can't just send them into dc on your own say so you need federal authorization. You need the trump administration to authorize it and the trump administration is a wall. They won't authorize it. Nobody can get a call. Returned would be secretary of defense sect in denying authorization for the maryland national guard. What was the reason we. None of us really spoke to the secretary of defense but we were repeatedly being told by the national guard at the national level that we did not have authorization actually on the phone with leader. Voyeur was leading with us the sending guard. He was yelling across the room to schumer who they were back and forth saying we. We do have the authors. And i'm saying i'm telling you we do not have the authors and so we had times. The general was running up the flagpole. We're ready don't have authorization. Don't have and then i get it fall an hour and a half later out of the blue. Not from the secretary of defense not through the normal channels. I got a number. I don't recognize on my phone. Pick it up. Anyway larry hogan and like this ryan mccarthy sector the army governor. Can you come soon as possible it. Yeah we've been waiting. We're ready don't they. Can't tell you what was going on the other end on the decision making process. There's been lots of speculation in the media about that. But i i'm not privy to what was going on inside the white house or inside. Category coverage trivia earned resolve. We love of look. Here's where i am i. I think there's no question that america would be better off if the president would resign or be removed from office. And if mike pence vice president united states would conduct the peaceful transition of power in the next thirty days until president biden this morning.

Silverado Fire: Two Firefighters Seriously Hurt, 7,000+ Acres Burned, Zero Containment, Los Angeles
"Well of course, story today is been the wind and eventually what came with the wind event some fires. The biggest of which is over four thousand acres burned in. Orange. County. They call it these Silverado fire it's in eastern Orange County and the area affected the most or some neighborhoods. In Irvine. They have had difficulty because of the winds using air support to help contain this fire. Burning out near Yorba Linda. But the tough news we got a couple of hours ago with regards to the Orange County fire near Irvine is at a COUPLA, firefighters were severely burned covering this for Kfi news is Corbin Carson with the latest on what's going on in Orange County forbidden from the looks on television the wind is still blowing very strongly. Yeah it picks up an in. It drops off I'm still over here at the O C Global Medical Center where those firefighters were were were abroad. But yes, as you mentioned all throughout the day, we have seen these really strong winds is knocking stuff all over the streets kicking down a flagpoles and you know campaign signs you name it it's just it's mates from for some really tough conditions in and as we've just heard that the Fire that started in Santiago Canyon. This morning is now to seventy, two hundred acres, and then the fire that I'm about to be headed to. Now that over near your Yorba Linda has grown to over a thousand acres. We're hearing that there's a possibly one structure burned. So I'm going to check that out right now, and we just recently also heard all the new evacuations for the area we got that update from division chief Shane sure would. Mandatory evacuation orders here in the city of Irvine, their impacting approximately ninety thousand, eight hundred residents. So all residents north of Irvine Boulevard from Jamboree to Bake Parkway. As well as from Irvine, boulevard south to Bianca, road from Jeffrey Road East to patrol high high school all under mandatory evacuations. Also the communities in the city of lake forest, Baker ranch and Foothill ranch are also under mandatory evacuations. So as you just heard ninety thousand people more than ninety, nine, thousand people affected by these new orders. So a lot of people being asked to move those people around those areas that are not specifically affected they are being told stay ready in case. The wind shifts or they are told some at some point to move and that people can check with their local areas too as to where to get the latest updates and make sure that they're ready to go if needed. But earlier as you also mentioned, we had a couple of firefighters this afternoon that were out there they were they were on the hand crews and one was twenty, six years old one was thirty one years old the the the hankers part of their. Clearing the line and making sure they're trying to get some kind of containment on these fires as they're moving as fast as they can, and unfortunately we heard from OC fire authority Brian Fantasy that two of them were severely burned. This afternoon here is him making bringing this tough news to US earlier one of the hardest things? Any fire chief can do is is to report. Out on one. One of the firefighter family members have been injured or. Or worse. This is. A tough for me. Tougher all my firefighters. And certainly for the families of my two injured firefighters. One of them, a twenty, six year old and one of them at thirty one year old. One has sixty five percent burns both second and third degree. The second has fifty percent. Both second and third degree burns, and so what we're hearing is currently the families are here with them at the OC global, medical center that both have been intimated and aren't able to speak and they are in critical condition. But again, as you guys in, we were talking about a couple of hours ago just these winds that have been going through this area. I. Was Talking to a meteorologist about what to expect earlier on this and he told me that Sandiego. Canyon is his right in this wind corridor of OC. In that, you know this morning he had seen and we've already heard gust close to one hundred miles per hour in different areas. He says, these wins did a complete one eighty from onshore to offshore all part of this massive system bringing snow from Canada to Mexico this week. So we're really expecting these winds where everyone's keeping an eye out and being ready to go of necessary. The
The Churchs Role in Racial Healing
"The shooting by police twenty, nine year old African American Jacob Blake who was shot in the back seven times after a domestic disturbance report has reignited the kinds of protests and riots in Kenosha Wisconsin as we've seen in places like Ferguson Baltimore Louisville Minneapolis and elsewhere even as the detail surrounding the shooting continues to emerge violence continues to escalate and kenosha seventeen year old boy from Illinois shot and killed two protesters while the boys men charged with murder in the first degree, his attorney says he's acted in self defense and over the weekend in Portland a city that's been on. Edge for weeks and weeks and weeks a trump supporter was shot and killed after a conflict with ANTIFA protesters as the Washington. Post reports people on both sides of the United. States political and cultural divide have been filmed exchanging punches beating one another with sticks and flagpoles or standing face to face with weapons often with police appearing to be little more than observers. One anti-defamation League historian described the state of the Union. This way we're not just a polarized society. We're increasingly confrontational society last Wednesday while leading our weekly prayer Webinar for the church in the nation Bishop Garland Hunt tackled. That most of us have right now is that even possible to find ratio healing in a nation that so deeply divided his answer to that question was about as biblically grounded as any I've heard so far you can come to breakpoint dot org and Click on this commentary on link you to a video of his presentation only the church hunt set has the path to healing or another way to put which should be obvious to everyone by now no other institution in our culture is offer any real way forward one that can deal with both the sins of our past and the conflict of. Our present, only the church if not the church then who we start bishop on said by morning with those who mourn the African American community of which Bishop on apart is in mourning, he reminded US and racism in any form he also reminded us is rooted in pride that makes it fundamentally a spiritual battle as Paul told the Fiji we don't Russell against flesh and blood, but against rulers against the authorities against the cosmic powers over this present darkness against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places, those forces are at work anytime there is dehumanizing injustice in any form including when peaceful protests. Become indiscriminate violence as we've seen. So often in recent months, and that's why if the church is to be the church, Christians must have a world that's big enough to understand that in this case neither politics nor policy can offer any long-term solutions. Only the Church has the resources of reconciliation in particular the church carries the effect of weapons of prayer and repentance approaching God in prayer as Bishop Hunt reminded, US, begins with dying to our own agenda to what we think we know to whatever would give us a superior attitude over anybody else echoing Paul Hunt said, we've all seen black and white in. Our attitude toward one another our hatred are unforgiveness. The black community is mourning and he said must appeal to the Lord to get rid of unforgiveness to get rid of hatred to release people from the past and to love unconditionally and the white community needs to repent for a lack of sensitivity. A lack of willingness to even care that there's something going on in the black community in unwillingness to even speak out on racial injustice and in the most important thing I think he said Bishop Pont said the racial thing is not going away unless the church grabs hold of the cross like never before. As he went on to pray and his words sounded so much like Nehemiah 's were sorry because the church has not been the example it needs to be we've been part of the problem we've allowed ourselves not to care were sorry for the sins of our nation were sorry we haven't forgiven and then echoing the words of Jesus and John Seventeen Lord. Let it be that the church can be one even as you in the father are one

Because I don't have a drinking history that is going to be very involved but It was almost exclusively drugs for me. And and I apologize if that because of that. You can't relate or anything like you know anything like that but So I grew up in a small town in South Alabama about ten thousand people and Aw so pretty normal You know elementary school and you know L. High School and like I always had a girlfriend all through elementary school and really I did all through high school but along about puberty are so I began to realize my attraction attraction to other boys men so when in my town the when you leave six excreted you go straight to so in and I was just terrified of this Going to high school because in the seventh grade you have have all grades. I had seniors in my physical education class. When I was in in in high school I was in the seventh grade and the rumor was that the seventh graders are all going to have their pants ripped off and run up the flagpole and so that was a fear to however soon I began to enjoy physical education as you know it was a chance for me to peer at other boys and everything and I was kind of realizing that what I was hoping it was was a phase and but you know I didn't know anything anything about it or anything like that so you know I was hoping that it might go away one day and that everybody you know maybe everybody goes through a phase like this? Yes but it didn't go away and of course you know I've I've always joked that in in my town like being gay would be You know akin to or or let me put put it this way. I always used to say that the Guy who robbed the liquor store and shot the clerk would be more respected than a gay person. I'm in my town so you know. Of course I I kept that all client and you know whether this can you know this will come up because it hasn't I I. My story has a lot to do with my story with drugs has a lot to do with sex so in college college. I smokes marijuana in my freshman year. But it didn't get off but finally I I kind of came out in the summer of my junior between my junior and senior year in college and you know had sex for the first time and STARTED GOING TO ATLANTA. I went to school at Auburn. Which is in Alabama and it's about two hours from Atlanta so I started going to Atlanta a lot and so I would like go to Atlanta on Friday night state state of the bars closed and then come back to football game on Saturday then go back to Atlanta on Saturday night has stayed in the bars? Close rolling down windows and doing all kinds of things to to keep myself awake while I was doing all that driving. But so you know I was given pot and so in my my senior year I got off on pot and I you know I had been drinking and I noticed like all during my fraternity parties parties and all that other guys seem to get a lot more fun out of it than I did because I would get you know when I got to where I could feel it I would enjoy it for about an hour or so and then I get really hungry and I'd WanNa eat then I wanna go to sleep. And then the next day it was always always a at least a twenty four hour recovery for me. There was no question how about after I had been drunk. Was I going to go to this class the next day or anything like that. I was praying to the porcelain goddess the entire day so when I discovered pod that was like oh now I've got something that I can do at parties but immediately my friends changed and this was back in like nineteen seventy three seventy four and so you know it was Kinda like it would be kind of like you know so okay okay. I became a person that you're cool. If you smoke pod you know you kinda like would say hey eighties Mojo year. I smoke all this kind of stuff and so would I am I band and my other friends and so I was. I was in. ROTC in college and So I immediately went into the airforce right after college. I was a pretty big whoop empty. Do in ROTC and college. I was like the Cadet Commander of Air Force Army Navy Navy. ROTC for this big presentation celebration and all this kind of stuff. Even though I had begun smoking pot and hitting the gay bars ars on the weekends and so when I got into the air force I was going to go. I was in in pilot training and so you know while I was flying these planes with an instructor all that kind of stuff. I thought this is not going to be very good. pot-smoking job so I was thinking I began to think about. Okay now. What do I want to do? You know that would be a good pot-smoking job and so and immediately by the way when I started smoking pot I never expected as much from me after that. My my whole self esteem or what. I thought that I might become all of that was never was never the same name so I was thinking pop truck driver. That would be a good pot-smoking job especially since I seem to have to have a joint everywhere. I went in the car. You know which is ridiculous so Douglas. Maybe you can identify with with that. I mean you know because it's just you know it's dangerous for that too but but it seemed like like a good idea at the time so I eliminated myself from pilot training and became an administrative officer and so but the night before I started pilot training. I need to go back. That was used to go. I was stationed in Selma Alabama Emma all places and used to go to Atlanta on the weekends and so I was at this guy who let me stay at his house when I would go to Atlanta and he was having a party and he gave me there was a little bit of powder on the end of a knife and he you gave it to me just swallow. And so that was when I first discovered met and we never. We never mentioned the word meth back. Then we always called Krystal a nice a nice sounding word and so I thought and an identified like. Here's the point where identify a lot with people whose drug of choice is alcohol. Because immediately I thought where has this. I've been all my life. I know what's wrong with me. This must be how normal people feel and so I was you you know I felt better looking. I was a better conversationalist I had deep conversations that night with people that I couldn't stand And and You know I just thought this was you know I've said this before that. So what's wrong with me is I've been suffering from a meth deficiency Z. Crystal deficiency and so. I thought that that was the answer. And of course it turned on me. I got caught during the Air Force in the Air Force with a with a test. Urine urine test best. They called it operation golden flow so I got caught and I lied my way out. You know they. The Command base commander called me and he said like there were there. Were two positives in the test and Lieutenant Sawyer. One of them was yours and I go mine why he said well. You tested positive for him. Fatemi so I go amphetamine for me. What could that be you know and I said Oh I was in Vancouver? I was stationed in Upper Washington state. Right on the Canadian border. I said well I was was in Vancouver the last week and I was going to go skiing the next day and a guy gave me this diet this diet. Take this and you won't be tired tired. And so and I said I thought a diet pill which is something you could buy. I didn't know that it was anything wrong with that. Just lying through my teeth the whole time know exactly what it was but so I had to pee for a month in the you know. Oh every every week for a month and but I did get my self out of that but even you know during that during during that month I was thinking all kinds of ways. Like how could I scheme to Be Able to do some crystal and not get caught in the urinalysis Ossis but so after I got out of the Air Force I went back went to graduate school and I I was only there a couple of quarters and then I I dropped Out and I I moved to Atlanta. which is where my disease really took
