We talked about copperhead couple Issues Corps commander driving the watermark skin and Yeah. For some reason. Yeah. COPPERHEAD never made it. He showed up in. I. I D- W version later on. Original one, hundred, fifty, five. In the Sun I know he's shown up since in the relaunch of the real American hero line the fairly recently, I saw him in. He snuck into a couple of the issues as well. So maybe he was maybe he's in special missions and I know it's been a while since I've read those those. We down, the road. I, I can recall all yeah.

To earn the money to to get the mob off his back and that that's an interesting story and that's an interesting character you could try to do a lot with but I, guess it just well. You can't really fault them because there's so many new characters and vehicles and toys being introduced just trying to keep up with the current run the current number of stuff coming out, and you know some characters are going to fall by the wayside or. Maybe they just figured well copperhead but maybe they just treat them in like a driver like the the reason the his tank driver got a special issue because there are a whole bunch of maybe just the idea it was.

Wise at least for the next fifteen, fifteen twenty or so issues come down the road a lot of action lot interesting stuff to do and I I get the sense that it just kind of happened by random because Larry famously says he doesn't outlying he doesn't really know where things are going just. Record is. Fortunately for the character Kinda landed at a point in the story and in a way that he needed to be involved in it for a good while.

It should be a pirate story associated with the everglades ago story in no less whether sanctioned privateers or street criminals privacy was an region, started in sixteen, obviously like pirates in the sixteenth century with Spanish pirates, and the obviously went to about the nineteenth century, but pirates only lasts about one hundred years before they got fucked up. We did a strange pirates episode. But they didn't last long, but there is a weird story. That was detail. The nine hundred, thousand nine by actually the Chicago Tribune, which is Weird Chicago, did it, and it was that in the sixteen hundreds of pirate ship captured by a merchant ship off the coast of Florida they. Obviously captured this merchant ship. They gave the pirates chase and gave them enough trouble that the pirate made every crew member. Walk the play. Retaining. Wall retaining the captain's wife to make make her watch. That's Fox that they made her made. The captain's wife watches everyone the plank.

Send you some videos. Because the videos of people's houses just covered in these fuck, fuck scheduling. And what do you do bug spray them nothing there's there's supposedly like these remedies, but I've tried them do. It doesn't work. So there was a conspiracy about these bugs right so. Anybody who's in Florida's obviously familiar with the love bugs. They're annoying little bugs that fly around literally doing nothing. And they just die while they just they live, and they just die, and so there's a rumor surrounding where they came from and according to the rumors that the love bugs were genetically engineered by scientists at the University of Florida. For the purpose that they would meet with male mosquitoes and sterilize them. Yeah, they can no longer produce, but that's obviously just a rumor. Dude. That's fucking. Yeah, that's a weird. Say Right so. Yeah so. Here I'll talk. All Ed Gut Niagara Edgar I wanted to let me throw in the end with our. Let me throw in the Miami fucking. I can. Down for anything. I. Don't know if you've heard about this, so I remember. When this came out on the news in May, twenty on May Twenty, six twenty twelve right and this gets, it gets fucked up Rudy Eugene attacked. A Miami Miami resident has nameless Ronald. POPO, right he's. He was a homeless man, and did this happen literally under this causeway, so it was like literally on the highway there were underneath it and there's a video of it. It, but you can't really see what's happening. You just see the COP. Go Up to them. It's like you can just see their elected. They were both naked. And you see the walk up. Take a step beyond. Take a step back. Dude, and he liked shot the guy or whatever so this guy? There is an eighteen minute film encounter right because there was like this security camera looking down. Eugene accused of stealing his Bible. Unconscious removed his pants embiid off most oppose face above the beard, including his left eye, leaving him blind in both eyes. As a result, the incidents shocking nature of sequent worldwide media covered. Eugene came to be dubbed the Miami's Zombie. And the Causeway Cannibal literally was on the highway just underneath and it was. Just covered by the barrier wall size guy. Well this is around the same time. Bath salts came out so this. Is a thousand percent that he was on basalt because we've had cases and Canada. But also there's that fucking do off camera where he was from, but the guy that I think he was like a juggle some douchebag that listen to ICP. fucking bath salts any like fucking eight. The guy's fucking head on the back of the bus as a huge store. Yeah, he like fucking. Canada yeah, I think it was Canada, but it might be the states.

Don't know where anything is fucking from, but he's cut the guy's fucking head and they started eating his fucking and people were like in the bus watching and they'd like. Pull over, and obviously all fucked up, but the kid was on basalt, and while you look for that. Let me finish reading this. Look that shit up. I wanted to what the hell is, so the attack ended when Yuji was fatally shot by mammy PD officer so. Obviously, this guy was missing Popol missing and his family thought he was dead, and so this is where it gets funny I. Don't know about saw. I don't I don't know how fucked.

This is the Florida Bro saved up for the. Pogo. So. What got me here was? The obviously. They speculated that it was bath salts, but here's the thing they did. Toxicology reports on him, and they're only what identify marijuana in his system so. I read the description, maybe a schizophrenic. That's the thing I read the description and supposedly the guy had approached the homeless guy like all Super Nice right and they started talking and he was like Oh. You know I can't score and then talking about scoring at the beat, and then out of nowhere, he's like we're all GonNa die, and then He. Punched them, just took his clothes off and start eating his fucking fake. Drugs. Or that's. Up Do you have to? Do because that's the thing, so I thought about I was talking to buddy of mine when I was researching this and I was like. May there's been more fucked up things. People have done right then more messed up things people have done, but how messed up. Do you have to be just like for me to go up to your right now and just say hey, Bro, and the knock you on consciously your face. I. And that's what I'm sure I think like. Maybe he's coming down. And people do horrendous shit if he had mental health issues and you know people do drugs like Mathur, bath salts and stuff like that and making them hallucinate kind of when they can't get off of it and shit when they're like desperate for things like their whole endorphins are fucked up like that.

"Hello everyone and welcome to frames. My name is Scott Olsen and I am talking today with Beowulf Sheehan. Beowulf is one of the most sought after most successful and I believe most important portrait photographers in New York. These days he has worked in more than fifty countries lectured at New York University and Yale among other places and if you go to his website you will see portrait of people like Oprah Winfrey Twenty Morrison Patti Smith Margaret Atwood Patrick Stewart in Kellyn Paul Simon and dozens and dozens of others. It is a body of work of which I am personally Quite envious good morning. Bill could he's got great to hear Your Voice. I do have a quick thought for you. I've not traveled to fifty countries the photograph I photographed in better than ten by way of commissions however I have photographed people from at least fifty countries and hopefully been able to travel to their worlds in cultures through those experiences. Okay I saw that on your resume and I was impressed and I'm still impressed. So tell me how things are in New York this morning. New York is a beautiful place this morning. The air is cool and crisp outside. I did have a short walk this morning. I am very fortunate that out my window. I have a cemetery so I get to see less trees and I have a great deal of quiet. What sounds I hear. Every morning in this new time of ours is usually One of two things that I hear all either your birdsong or I will hear the sound of a passing ambulance and of course happy to hear the former not to hear the ladder. That is the time in which we live summer mornings in New York. City yes Tell me about portrait photography but let let let's begin where people how in the world could you get into photography? How did you get into the kind of portraiture that you do specifically I into photography being a shy boy and wanting to make friends and prior to the thought of making friends? I wanted to be reacquainted with my father. My parents divorced when I was in elementary school. My father was out in my life for a few years and when he came back the beginning of my high school years he had a Konica thirty five millimeter camera. A Long Lens to go with it and when I arrived at high school which was a high school outside of my neighborhood I went to magnet high school for foreign languages. I was busted very early in the morning to get there. I was in the ethic minority in head a world of new friends to make and when I got to school my classmates were speaking about two things with which I was unfamiliar of the Miami Dolphins. I grew up in Fort Lauderdale and girls and I knew very little about both but I had been working in the summers and not really spend that money on anything beyond books and comic book so I had enough money saved to become the youngest person in the history of the Miami Dolphins the buy season tickets to the Miami Dolphins. That's impressive I go So what I had done was than I began to use my father's camera and I would take a tripod that camera that long lens invite a new acquaintance from high school to eat game. And I believe my mother had driven been to us down To attend these games and no one ever stopped me. The guards were very kind. They recognize me after a few games. I always went through the same gate that sort of thing and was able to watch Dan Marino or the ball around and make pictures and then make Prince of those pictures and share them with classmates over time developing friendships and of course Getting to know my father again. That's a wonderful beginning there. Is I know an extraordinary event. Though in your early connection to reading and that's possible yes but but I'll let you lead that so when you're asking the extraordinary connection is well. Yeah you you are probably the only you are the only person I know who's ever been bitten by an alligator. Oh this is true this this. I don't know all the people in your life of course who you know but but I'm the only person I know who's been bitten by an alligator and that happened to me in the summer of nineteen seventy six in June of that year. I was of course on summer break from school quite small and my brother and I were playing in the backyard of the home of a friend of my mother in southwest Fort Lauderdale where there are canals and those canals in some cases feed than Their Way West to the Florida everglades and of course. That's where alligators hang out. And some of them sometimes get lost. My brother-in-law had been wrestling. This lady's backyard was time to come into the House for lunch. I had asked the Lady of the House. If we could use your host wash our feet persons they were full of dirt from the grass and the young lady had said no actually better just a spicer feed off the dock and then it'll be quicker and I went I. I remember sitting at the dock. Enjoying splash on my feet and looking at my brother and my brother's twenty months younger than me made his eyes get bigger and he looks down on my foot. I looked at my foot and I saw the alligator close. Its mouth around my right foot and I went to some degree of shock. The allegation let go. He caught the outside artery of my ankle and bloodshot out. Allah a bad money iphone sketch. And my my brother then began to grab my body to try to pull my body up and my mother and my mother's friend of course had come out of the house at this time and they were lifting me from the document onto the grass. The allegation had gone back under the dock. And I don't know how much more time passed or how much blood I lost but I then at some point found in the emergency room of a hospital where my brother was born. Only a few blocks away and doctors worked in saved my foot. Save my leg. There was concern for infection loss and I was very lucky to have for the balance of the summer. Have Gone to the hospital every day to get my foot.

Maybe more interesting stuff. The right word say because books are wonderful. And they're very very interesting. Otherwise we wouldn't have these films adaptations of stories that now the masses is seen film but the the books of course comic books would come out once a month and it was great to go to seven eleven after school and pick up those books but I would devour them so quickly and then I really wasn't in the mood to wait another month for the next book to come out so I would just draw stories myself. The drawing worked its way over time of course into photography. But that's a longer compensation which I'm happy to have

Henry Ford's Rubber Utopia
"It all started in in nineteen twenty five. Henry Ford was having lunch and his Dearborn Michigan Mansion with his good friend business partner entire magnate Harvey firestone Harvey. RV and Ford had been friends and partners since Ford started building cars decades earlier. So yeah just remember like he invented the model t which I like cheap car and basically he brought the car to the mass. Exactly Mr Firestone had begun ranting this time primarily focused on the impending rubber cartel that had been proposing England by one Winston Churchill. I am not a crooked. You know that payments de Yeah with a cigar and he's like on this day I I am not a crook and it will live in infamy. Yep that's him. The purpose of also the was Churchill. The king no the purpose of the rubber cartel was to limit the export of rubber in order to not overextend national resources. In case there was another World World War One thousand nine hundred eighty five probably a good idea but harvey firestone didn't like that idea. He believed that rubber prices were going to spike in the US as a result and therefore negatively affect firestone tires. Not some things never change Harvey firestone was not alone in this fear even even presidential candidate. FDR feared the effects of a rubber tariff. Remember was viewed. As the automotive industry's chokepoint seen as even more crucial than oil it's crazy. The the automotive industry relied on vulcanized rubber for literally everything from tires to hoses gaskets. A price increase of any kind could sink the young business so there there was a legitimate fear of turtles. Pain passing seems somewhat reasonable. Also it's it's it's kind of like okay here newsflash guys. If you're listening to this this might lose some you know in. I believe in climate change. And it's SORTA like yeah making some changes like you know not dumping tons of poisons into rivers and stuff might be more expensive for some people but in the at the end of the day. It's good not to have poisoned rivers and it's also probably good to have like rubber to defeat the Nazis. Yeah Germany was totally destroyed and they were afraid of something all of Europe. Yeah they're afraid of something like that happening again because those wounds had not been healed all and Churchill was just saying like hey fellers hello. Hello how does he talk. Talk like this is how are we talk again elegant. Listen listen fellows. That women's of all are still fresh insulting. I say that maybe we just save some of US supplies in case of fruit bikes out to again rubber. Blow Hurrah. Yes that's always saying always saying. Hey guys the whole world was just at war four. I think it might happen again. Maybe we should just like chill and be ready and these guys are like a money so harvey firestone was fed up with living in constant fear of their so he decided the best course of action would be to grow his own rubber smart. This wasn't the first time he had some some crazy idea. In fact Harvey tried to declare economic independence from the UK and fly rubber under the American flag. A few years earlier but that was truly the ramblings of a madman who doesn't seem to understand that you can't just not claim another country's resources by saying this cheaper so I'm just going to say it's it's American now although now that I think back on it that's kind of how we did a lot of stuff so yeah but harvey actually had a plan. He decided that he was going to start his own plantation in Liberia where the conditions were almost perfect for growing rubber trees by keeping the production in house he could avoid all the access fees associated with importation from other countries. Henry Ford had also tried growing his own rubber a year earlier. In one thousand nine hundred eighty four he had purchased this large quantities of land in the Florida everglades only to eventually do nothing with them. It was cheaper for four to import. The rubber. The idea of dramatic price is increase was still only speculation. But Still Harvey's plans had peaked and reports interests and after the lunch meeting was over. He requested that it's personal aide aide Leopold would find out where the best place to grow rubber Leopold come over here boy. Where's the best place to go? Rob A AH go find out how Liberia was the obvious choice. Harvey firestone discovered. It had the perfect climate when he put his plantation there but unfortunately Henry Ford word was very very very racist and he would not dare step foot in such an uncivilised and African society so they came to the conclusion. I mean that the rubber should be grown where it originated in the Amazon. So rubber comes from both vines and trees and you let it grow and then when you chop it you squeeze the vines and Latex Literal Latex comes out trees yeah so it's a liquid and then they they put out onto like big flat drying areas than when it dries. You can pull it up like a sheet of Latex and then you take a bunch of latex yeah stack stack into bales. And then that's what gets shipped out to like Volkan Ization plants and stuff like that. So these plantations are really only concerned with drawing the vines and extracting latex from okay okay and Liberia had the per client. But what about the Amazon Amazon also. Very clearly great. Climate only problem. It's a lot harder harder to get into the rainforest than it is in Africa. Got You throughout the nineteenth century. The Amazon River Basin supplied all of the world's rubber and made up forty percent of Brazil's exports sports at the height of the rubber boom in the second half of the nineteenth century but the Amazon's rubber room quickly turned to bus as plantations in Asia and England. Were able to go. Rubber and much denser populations and much more efficiently in Amazon many natural species that are not present in other countries limit the growth of trees so but organizing united plantations and other countries the efficiency was greatly increased. Henry had another incentive to go to South America besides his racism in End Theodore Roosevelt's book through the Brazilian wilderness. He accounts his experiences traveling through the Amazonian rainforests. One of his most significant observations is that many fast-flowing rivers could provide an almost perfect power source for any industry bold enough to be born there. He claimed that the right kind of senators such his enterprising businessmen of foresight coolness and suggest city who would be willing to put migrants to work for an advantage that would be mutually beneficial will give rise to a a great industrial civilization money. If anyone thought they could fill that description it was Henry Ford art now. Henry Ford did not really make cars. Henry Ford thought that he made men the maker. Men's like me. This builder of meant the cars they produced produced were simply a byproduct of his training. He was praised as a sociologist manufacturer. If anyone could reshape the native Brazilians into prosperous factory workers it was Henry Ford. They don't want to be or so he thought they don't want that.
Who Was Marjory Stoneman Douglas?
"After the horrific parkland florida's school shooting in february of two thousand eighteen marjory stoneman douglas became a household name for all the wrong reasons but let's take a look today at the woman for whom the school was named marjory stoneman douglas undertook a legendary in dairy fifty year crusade to save the florida everglades born in minneapolis in eighteen ninety and educated at wellesley college in massachusetts douglas moved to south florida in nineteen fifteen fifteen after a brief and disastrous marriage to join her father who was editor and founder of the newspaper that would become the miami herald she was an accomplished journalist short story writer writer and an outspoken advocate for women's suffrage anti-poverty campaigns and ultimately because it would make her famous. The everglades douglas's nineteen forty seven owed into those wetlands. The everglades river of grass was published the same year that president harry s truman dedicated the everglades national park long before environmental scientists fully understood the fragility and interconnectedness of the everglades ecosystem douglas railed against efforts by the us army corps of engineers to drain divert parts of the sprawling wetlands to to make room for agricultural and urban development. These efforts continue today. The school was dedicated in nineteen ninety when douglas was one hundred years old and still going strong along with her book. Douglas provided a new way of understanding the one point five million acre wetlands preserve rather than seeing it as merely a sprawling swamp douglas rightly described the everglades massive slow moving river of shallow water draining north to south from lake okeechobee down through the sawgrass prairies and emptying into the florida florida bay in moving pros douglas road of the hundreds of species of birds fish and flora that thrived in the precariously balanced ecosystem of the everglades the largest subtropical wilderness in the united states. She rightly recognized that this area was largely responsible for the rainfall in south florida are book begins. There are no oh other everglades in the world they are. They've always been one of the unique regions of the earth remote. Never wholly known nothing anywhere else is like them a tireless and often intimidating advocate. She founded the organization friends of the everglades at age seventy nine to fight a proposed jet port in the middle of the wetlands lends. The airport plan was scrapped. Douglas spent the rest of her life. Defending the everglades jon rothschild edited her nineteen eighty-seven autobiography voice of the river described her in the book's introduction as she appeared at a public meeting in everglades city in nineteen seventy-three. Mrs douglas was half the size of her fellow. Speakers were huge dark glasses along with the huge floppy hat that made her look like scarlet o'hara's played by eager stravinsky when she spoke everybody's stop slapping mosquitoes and more or or less came to order. Her voice had sobering effect of a one room schoolmarm. 's the tone itself seemed tame. The rowdiest of the local stone crabbers plus the developers and the lawyers on both besides there are two seasons in the everglades. The dry winter and the monsoon summer and scientists now understand that seasonal fluctuations in water levels are key to maintaining the delicate equilibrium between competing plant and animal species but that balanced spend dangerously disturbed decades of habitat loss and short-sighted water-management tactics tactics. The river of grass is no longer a free flowing sheet of water but sliced up and boxed in by dams and dikes creating floods in some areas and drought in others congress passed the comprehensive everglades restoration plan back in the year two thousand but the funds to implement the plan never secured in the meantime lake shelby obi historically the water source that fed southward flow of the river of grass has become hopelessly polluted largely by agricultural runoff in two thousand sixteen high levels of phosphorus is a nitrogen in the lake caused a toxic algae bloom. The prompted the governor to issue a state of emergency eric eichenberger c._e._o. Of the everglades foundation and one time student at douglas's namesake high school says that congress will have to reauthorize funding for the restoration but if everything goes well the river of grass could be restored in as little as eight years he believes the douglas who died in nine hundred ninety eight at the age of one hundred and eight would be energized by the effort among douglas many honors and awards was the presidential medal of freedom conferred conferred by bill clinton in one thousand nine hundred three in the year two thousand she was posthumously inducted into the national women's hall of fame.

Correct. That's true. But the monkey on rim area. There, I found out is has the second highest frequency of lightning strikes of any place in the entire United States. Interesting, only one with more would be the Florida Everglades, and most of that leg is striking the water. So it was unique. And it was it was the clue that led me to figure out what they were doing there. I think the ship creates a magnetic field that triggered one of these lightning strikes. And I was the secondary discharge. And they were the only ones with the technology. The ability to save me. The nearest hospital was an hour away in either direction. None of the crew even knew CPR.

Sometimes what it takes to solve big problems is a big prize from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Amy Scott in for Molly would. It's been called American idol for science geeks. The George barley water prize will award ten million dollars to the team that develops the most promising technology to remove excess phosphorus from freshwater lakes and streams phosphorus pollution from chemical fertilizers and septic tanks has led to the growth of toxic blue green algae in the Florida Everglades. And elsewhere, Lauren par is director of the George barley water prize. She says the goal is to spark innovation the way that we've previously been looking at the issue or sometimes is reported on is attempting to remove the blue-green algae. And so while you can probably effectively skim off blue-green algae, you're not really tending to the root cause of the problem, which is excess phosphorus and so kind of like an it to the algae being a symptom of the flu. And so you might be able to sue the cough, but unless you actually attack the root cause of the. Thickness. You're not really going to affect the overall wellbeing of the system. What are some of the ideas? The teams have come up with so far. We've had a great showing from all around the world from the beginning of this program. We had over a hundred applicants from thirteen different countries. And so again, it just really drove home. The fact that this problem is not specific to Florida or the Everglades. It's a global issue. And so we've got, you know, a number of different technologies a number of different approaches one that I really love talking about. We actually have a US Geological Survey agency team participating in the program and they've essentially decided to use a local byproduct in iron ochre, which is really specific to the industries in West Virginia where this group is out of and they've decided to use that waste product as the filter to help remove phosphorus from water. And so they're taking this essentially waste products and transforming it. Into a technology that could affect in clean the waterways. Why do you think we need a prize to solve a big, social and environmental problem like this? I mean, obviously Americans love could competition, but why shouldn't you know, the companies that caused this problem be solving it sure. So, you know, I think part of why we've been so successful in garnering stakeholders is because our prize in our program, again, president general are just really solutions oriented programs and around the world, there's such a rich rich history with the global implementation of prizes. They've been using the past to solve problems that the free market simply wasn't addressing quickly enough on its own. And so this infrastructure of rewards and prizes has historically helped catalyze significant accomplishments certainly were hoping to do that with the barley prize. But things like the artigue prize in nineteen twenty seven which spur. For Charles Lindbergh's. First transatlantic flight from New York to Paris that reward at the time in nineteen twenty-seven was twenty five thousand dollars, which today is all of three hundred thousand I think, but it was that flight that led to today's three hundred billion dollar aviation industry, which is something basically impossible to imagine at that time. And so what we know is that historically this prizes can help catalyze massive changes in huge technological breakthroughs. And we're really hopeful that the Varley price can do the same has the competition actually, spurred those breakthroughs new ideas to remove phosphorus, or they ideas that were being developed prior. And they're just getting a boost from this. Now, you know, I think that we collected a number of ideas that were in different stages of development. But certainly none of these were being implemented on a commercial scale yet. And so we've definitely. Moved the needle without doubt on research and development, but I would go so far as to say that our third stage which was an actual field test in Canada really did manage to move the needle on the economics of phosphorus removal here in Florida. The most typical way to address the phosphorus pollution issue is through storm water treatment areas, which are STA's, but the problem with TA's as while they're remotely effective, they're incredibly land intensive and so with each of our teams to get as far as they've gotten this competition, they were given pretty strict land constraints because we want to be able to do is implement these types of technologies any in the world, regardless of available land. And so that alone the shown efficacy of being able to remove phosphorus from water and removing the massive land component necessary here in Florida is a huge win for us to if we don't solve this problem soon. What are the stakes the stakes get higher? Hire every year. So we know with global warming with sea level rise. What we're seeing is not only more frequent algal blooms, but they're more intense. They're more damaging on their more harmful not only to human health, but ecosystem health, and so certainly in Florida. What's at stake is the drinking water supply for a third of the state and our state here in Florida relies so heavily on tourism. And so without clean waterways. Without pristine beaches were missing out on the number one driver of the state's economy. Lauren par is director of the George barley water prize. It's sponsored by the Everglades foundation and the Scots miracle. Grow foundation. Scott's the company still uses phosphorus and some of its fertilizers, but dropped it from lawn products several years ago the competition is now down to five final teams. They'll spend the next year testing and refining their technology that ten million. Dollar grand prize will be awarded next year.

"Let's our daily exploration of a world gone mad. I don't know if anything exemplifies that that particular fact, better than this Florida family that is opting to raise their child gender-neutral and calling their child a they be no not a baby. So it's a they they know they. Okay. It's going to be an early start for the duct tape. I see by the weather their child's name is. Sparrow sparrow. So. So what? So just so. No. So that's great. Hey got to say. Right, right. So that's great. The first of all they're the they named the baby the baby. I'm sorry. Sparrow. And then Secondly Sparrow is gender neutral. That is. It's beautiful updates. Not gonna help. We're going to need like, I don't know the flex seal family of products for this, really home. Hold on. Careful what you ask for have. We still have excellent seal the brain there doesn't explode with the story. So we got because you could solve boat in half. And then and then get in the boat. Yeah. And drive it around lake wanted to or the Florida Everglades are wherever that's how strong this stuff is. So. Barrow the baby. Yeah. The room going to be that's the thing. They're all gender neutral colors because they don't know. I don't know. I mean, they saw the genitals at birth. But that doesn't mean anything. Airy Dennis who is sparrow's mom. Believes that her child's genitals don't determine her child's gender. She said we did not assign a sex at birth. No, you know, who did that God did that? So you didn't need to already done. And so when you take it off the shelf. Yeah. Already included remade pre made yet. Cannot take this. So they had genitals. She said they had genitals. We know what they are. We just chose to acknowledge that those genitals don't indicate anything about anything about Janet, Janet gender. They don't indicate anything about your gender. Okay. All right sparrows eleven months right now. And I don't know why CPS is not on the same here. Why seriously hurt for this child? Oh my gosh. I I honestly don't understand. But Spero will be able to decide his or her gender win here. She is older, and they don't use pronouns like this, by the way, that's. That's. On the child's birth certificate under gender, it's unknown under sex unknown. Okay. And that's Florida. Dennis said that she was inspired razor child as gender neutral baby after their older child, quote discovered gender around the age of four unquote, we are in no way prohibiting Sparrow from having gender. And we're not forcing them to be one gender or another. You know, how do we we just sit here and listen to this garbage? And in their interview when you when you see the we should tweet this out because it's unbelievable in the interview, the the reporter just sits there and soaks this all in right? Not right. Okay. Great, wonderful, sure them them, and they are moral. The child is singular. They doesn't work for him or her. I can't. So we're changing the meaning of actual words, and creating a whole new language, I guess under this new radicalism. That Democrats are. Are encouraging emperor lifting. Today. I would I would love to. I'd love to hear from listeners on anything that we've missed from the radical extremist Democrats lately, I thought we'd review some of the policies proposed. And some of these crazy ideas that are prolific aided by Democrats. And then you you let us know if there's anything here that we've left out. Starting with the new green deal. Here's just a few highlights of the Greenville plan when you talk about crazy, radicalism, extremism and all of these proposals. By the way, in the new green deal are to take place within the next ten years. So we're going to eliminate all fossil fuels. We're going to ban nuclear energy. That makes sense right since it's it's not getting approved. Anyway, it's only the cleanest and most efficient energy source. We have who wants clean, nobody nobody. We're going to eliminate vehicles cars the combustion engine..

"With this partial federal government shutdown with a quarter of the federal government. That is that's not operational is that you had so many of the essentials that were funded like the military, for example been funded. You hear all these spending and funding bills that take place all throughout the year. Well, the majority of the federal government has been funded. We're just talking about what hadn't been dealt with up to this point. And that's why this one is different. Which is another point every partial federal government shutdown is different based upon what has already been funded and from there it gets into what's a priority. For example, the national parks, you might notice that in a reference to being here in south Florida. If you come to south, Florida Everglades are open Everglades are open and most of the national parks in in the country are accessible to some degree. But that was not the case in government shutdowns that took place during the Obama administration. A in fact, there are actually work security personnel put outside entrances to national parks, including the Everglades to keep people from entering. And I ended up calculating out the cost of the security to keep people out of the parks, and it actually turned out it was more expensive during those partial government shutdowns to keep people out of the parts that would have been to just employed the Park Rangers to keep them open. I'm not kidding. That's that actually happened. The reason that happened was it was a priority of the Obama administration to make you feel it. So that was one of the ways that you could get the public outcries. You can't go to the Everglades and in our case in south, Florida. Oh my gosh. And then you get all the media screaming and all the time. Tourists and talk about the economics and everything else. Well, indicates that the Trump administration has not been a priority to keep you eligible, national parks. They are four in the case of the Everglades. We actually have volunteer groups that are going out there and cleaning up the Everglades, which by the way, if we are all being good stewards of the environment. Can we just clean up after ourselves? I mean is that really asking too much? I mean come on now. But I digress. So that's why every one of these things is a little bit different. And based upon the priorities of the administration. It's going to look different now next up the federal government agencies and the and this is the biggie here. How many federal government agencies can you name? I mean seriously. I will give you a day. You can't cheat. Give you a day Helmi federal government agencies. Can you name? Hundred two hundred three hundred. Right. But we have four hundred thirty four hundred and thirty. And that is all part of this whole big ball of wax. There is so much redundancy in our federal government. There's so many agencies that exist that probably can't even be named by a single member of congress yet they go ahead and pass the funding for it. Anyway. That when you get really get down to priorities. Well, it's not hard. If you're trying to do the right thing by the American people to not have this be a burden on most, folks. So getting back to what's really going on right now in this specific partial government shutdown. We have right now about a quarter of the federal government. That is fertilized. Right. Okay. We have nine departments and approximately one hundred and eight government agencies that are impacted now on the surface. That.

This is one of the longer ones we had you might remember about a year ago. We actually had one that lasted like almost literally just overnight said, they're not anomalous at all. It's often just the way they played in the media. Now something else that a lot of people have been confused by the idea of what takes place some people think. Well, you know, we go into this pay go mode where just and whatever revenue comes into the federal government. That's what spent not a dorm. That's all part of the reason why you aren't seeing touching feeling most likely what's going on here with this partial federal government shutdown with a quarter of the federal government.
