So it's all the criticism change chips. Mind hasn't done anything right? Has lied more than 20,000 times He's put money in this pocket looks like his favorite dartboard.

"He could play the drums. He could play the trumpet. He he could do it all. Yeah. And here's a guy that you know, had confidence in you and said, You know, this is this is my guy. We're going to start touring and it really just, you know, put you even though Carson put you on the national stage. You know, Sammy and touring and doing those live performances really? Did that as well. And you know you share in the book about the time that you were in Vegas. And just like everybody like a fan, you went to see Sinatra perform at Harris and great story about how that connection all began. I came offstage when I When I was opening for Smokey and I didn't even change out of my state schools. I just both upstate and ran two doors over the Harris Hotel and was running into the showroom Because I didn't want to miss banks opening, he created more excitement, walking to the microphone that most people do with their whole act room when Frank Sinatra walked out on stage in place with just the roof would come off. So I want to watch that and I'm rushing in the showroom and the vice president of Harris Hotel, a man named Homes injection was standing out in front of the showroom with a big heavy shit guy with with a cigar. And Holmes, Sammy and I knew him from working the hotel many times. He should tell me Come here, come here, and I reluctantly went over their head in one of this bank's opening. And he said, Tommy, this is Mickey Rudin. While I recognize the name that was Frank Sinatra's lawyer, he said, Mickey, This is timed reason. And I think I would make a great opening act for Frank Sinatra and the lawyer got a paint expression on his face like he heard it a 1,000,000 times, and he winked at the Vice president, and then he looked at me, he said a kid if I gave you a week with Frank Sinatra, would you want more than 50,000? I said, Put it this way. Ruth, if you gave me a week with Frank, would you want Warden? I love this kid. And you were laughing. A week later. They called me to work with Frank at the Golden Nugget in Atlantic City, And I said, Yeah, try to get my picture taken with him and hang in every bar in Chicago. And the second night which working with him, he took me out to dinner. He and his wife, Barbara, and then I can remember like yesterday in the middle of dinner, he said, his knife and fork down and he said to me, I like your material, and I like your style. I'd like you to do a few other dates with me if you're interested, and I didn't say let me check my calendar, and it turned into 14 years of 45 50 cities year and most wonderful relationship. In friendship. And one day I'll take to my grave. It's a friendship in a relationship you never took for granted, either. No, e I made up my mind, You know, I mean, I I know a lot of television before that worked with lot of Irish and I knew that if Frank didn't want me anymore, I would work with someone else. You know, I mean, I would. I would just move on. But I made up my mind that because he was volatile, you know, there's no question about it. I said won't know We've seen him a couple times. Get a little angry with people. I said if that ever happens to me, I'm going to grab his hand and shake in shape. Frank. Thank you for the opportunity to work with you and I'm out there. I'm going out the door because I didn't. I wouldn't be a whipping boy for anybody but that they never came. We developed such a great friendship and relationship. In the beginning he was the boss because you ran the tour and it was a perfectionist on Showtime, you know, And then later he became like a buddy. We hung out till the wee hours of the morning, night after night. And then in the end, he was like a father to me and gave me so much advice at the end of this life and again, you know, I just I just moved What he wanted me to do. He We went to the same cities every year. Frank wanted me to keep coming up with new material. And because we went to the same cities every year, and he would stand in the wings and listen to my new material and comment on it after the show, and I knew he wanted me to be on time he was punctuality was a big thing with him. You know, each would think about this, Dave. Frank Sinatra. Arguably the greatest career show business has ever known was never late for any never late for any meeting. If you told Toby be a coffee shop at nine o'clock, if you you know he was there He was there a fight tonight. He was never late, and he expected that kind of Professionalism from you as well. And you look back at the days that you were listening to him on the jukebox in a bar, and then you see your name. On the marquee with Franks that it just must have been surreal and probably still the stay something you'll just never forget. Number and more than that. I've got the video. I've got the audio of him every night. When I finish my show when we were way worked a big arenas. I would do my show in there be an intermission for 15 minutes when we were in Vegas Tahoe or Reno Atlantic City. When I finished my son tonight, everybody as I exited stage, right? He was he was entering so he would we would crisscross and I would go into the wings, but he would go to center stage and Comey back out for another about and I've got all those tapes. You know, Tommy, come back. Leave time addressing leaves in German every is there is my man. My main man. Funny man. Tom dish. I've got those tapes that I play in my one man show. To this day. It throws me that this is the great Frank Shin. After calling me back out to take another about and that he allowed me to grease the same stage with him. It's something I'll never forget well, and he developed a friendship with him. So there's a story in this book that I haven't heard before. About the first. That very first time Frank invited you to come hang at his place in Palm Springs and not on Ly. Are you opening for him? But now he invites you over. Yeah, and with him about six months, and he said, you know, come stay at the house for the weekend and then went down to his compound in Rancho Mirage in the desert. And it's a huge compound that had Mongol O's on the outer perimeter of you that were named after his songs. You know Strangers in the night tender tapped my way in New York, New York in his house guests, you know And it and I end up staying down there like six times a year for the rest of his life. But it was hard for me to describe her for me. Describe to you what it was like for me because I grew up in a shack. You know again 45 of us slept in one bed. We had no bathtub in no shower, no hot water. No holes in my shoes. Now I'm infection after compound and they're waiting on you hand and foot. I mean, here in the If you wanted records in bed, he had a staff that would take care of you. They had lunch around the tennis courts, and in the evening he either Frank would take everybody to dinner at one of the restaurants in the desert. Or he would they would cook at home and he'd go in the kitchen and out the chef with the gravy, you know, with the sauce, you know, it was surreal. The houseguests Gregory Peck and his wife, Ernie could be Jack Lemmon and was rightfully should be cooked. Listen, his white band Clint Eastwood and whoever he was dating at the time. You know, Robert Wagner just came down..

And then when you you matched him with Don Rickles that we had it who we had at Mountaineer three or four times, actually. But, uh, it was just an incredible show, and I got to have dinner with both of them after the show, sitting in LabOne be a great restaurant at Mountaineer. And it was just a thrill. I mean, it was. They brought me back through the Johnny Carson through Frank Sinatra and all of the relations that they had going back throughout the history of really Entertainment in America as we know it today, Post World War two and it was just fascinating.

It ran them more than one night in prime time and anything that it went up against it beat. This guy was a communicator. But as I mentioned today, Teddy, he could talk just about any subject, and he was also when he had to be a great serious interviewer to so Regis Philbin may have seemed like the kid next door, but he really was a heavyweight in this business. Absolutely. Buddy was like the kid next door. He was like your next door neighbor and you sat down with him and just like people got the CM on Regis and Kathie Lee, how he was able to just talk with anybody about anything sports.

"Here's Rick Rubin Malcolm Glad Well Bruce Adam from Shangrila speaking with the studios architect Robbie Robertson. We had a fantastic take the other day a year. And I'm when I was telling the stories of Shangri la you know stories he envisioned this place and built it and it was unbelievable and it was mine it it you know the other guys in the band thought this was a good. Hi Dear but from big pink to. Sammy Davis Junior's house to the worcester. We made these records in not not in studios in other places where there was an atmosphere and it could be our atmosphere and ours. Sounds you know now and every thing was not on somebody else's will way of doing of somebody else's wave likes. You know you would go into the studio Rodeo. And there'd be these used to be these union guys they'd be like Oh looks like it's lunchtime or like what are you talking about lunchtime. We're we're you know we're about to do something something and and they'd be an IV. Like I I don't know this should be louder than don't touch that you know. Yeah so I don't want that I. Ah I don't WanNa do that so I said what we're going to do is we're going to make these clubhouse these workshop these studios does things that is our world and arm music are sound and whether it was true or not. I believed that that it gave it a character and a saying which it did for better or worse. What's what's interesting about? That too. Is that now. It's become more the norm. Yeah Ah that that said when you did it technologically. It was much more difficult to do like when you did it. You needed big studio equipment like today. People people can do it on their laptops so they can. It's easier to make that jump but when you did it. The infrastructure involved was not easy to pull off. It was unheard of except for Les. Paul Les Paul said. I'm going to build studio at my house and I'm GonNa Build an Echo Chamber into the side of this hill right. And he was going to do all of these things. I had an argument demint the other day with Van Morrison about being able to do this kind of thing and because he was saying I only liked the play live just with my band and I go in and we sing and they play this song and we can capture a moment. We've all done that. I know it really well. I played Ricksen music the other day. That was all like first or second takes in it. Was You know songs you've heard. Yeah sounds you've heard a lot so so anyway so van saying it's gotta be live and it's got to be governed by and that's the way it used to be in a way of being I said what about less paw. Aw He overdubbed. He made things he played on top of himself. He doubled tracked. Things invented it so so van says I know but he was magic you recorded at. Sammy Davis Junior House. Yes we made the band album. The brown album And we rented. Sammy Davis Junior House in the Hollywood sunset is at plaza in the Hollywood hills. And we all stayed in the House for the family and we turn the pool house where he used to have have his. Party's with Frank Sinatra the rat back and all these people we turn that Pool House into his studio and the record company Penny thought. This was the worst idea they ever heard. I thought this was ridiculous. He said Dr Fifteen minutes. We have the best studio in the world here. Franks not for records year right all of this stuff and I was like no no no. This is a different thing and finally finally they were like okay. Okay I guess I don't know what you're doing and it's probably going to be bad but serious June didn't show up in another another. Sammy Davis Junior. He owned he still owned the House. He didn't live there so the magic him like he lived there. Stepping in on one of your according to what the House was built lower. You go into the the bathroom in the sink was down here and it was. Everything was built to his specifications you know and and I it seemed like this is great. This is great. Sammy's world's amazing. And so we recorded the album there and then we mix it or we're going to mix the record and there's this guy in New York. Toni Mae was his name and he had mixed the is the brothers. It's your thing. Do what you WanNa they do. So it was such a great sounding record we said wow. Let's see we can get Tony Maiden Mick says and he worked with Phil Ramone and all these people are which so anyway comes in and he puts up the tapes and everything and he says These tapes are awful. I'm going to have to do a lot of work. Arcand this and I thought I don't know if I like that. So anyway. He did a mix. There was not what I wanted at all. It's not the way I heard it all so anyway we're like thanks. Tony See You know and on which songs with these these were on the band album was the night they drove old. DIXIE DOWN UP ON CRIPPLE CREEK Whispering Pines on was wrong with his mixes his mixes were a trying to make this slick and bright and end and there was a witness to it. There was a muddiness to it that that suited the music it was earthy and I I want it that right. But he didn't get the joke so that was okay so I went and mixed the album with guy another another guy at the at the the old Jerry Ragavan said factory in New York this guy of mixed the album we mixed at the guys in the band. We were all in their the in God at the way that that I wanted so we get it and then it's like okay. The guy the mastering in guy his name is Bob Ludwig. You GotTa get him to master your record. So we take the record to Bob. Ludwig and and He puts you know he puts on the tape the mixes and everything and he says Oh boy is like Toni. May He's like I don't know I'm GONNA try see if I can fix this or save this and I'm like That's really depressing. So I go on I tell the other guys I said. I don't know we might have done this all wrong. Everybody's saying it's it's terrible and that you know so the net. I don't know a couple of days later. Bob Ludwig calls me and he says I am such an an idiot. I am such a fool. I didn't get it I so get it. This is maybe be the most interesting record I've ever heard. He said I'm so sorry. And he told me Bob Ludwig he said I made the same mistake when sly stone brought me. There's a riot going on. I thought that that was a big mistake. Sue Two and he said and then I realized it you know I had to accept it the way that I accepted your record and So I was like 'cause I thought he was right hit on and if he had a state with that I don't know what would have happened. So he you you know he mastered at hardly did anything to it in in the mastering and it was just one of those things it was a homemade saying it did have that character to it and that was part of its
Pop Music's Past Is Crowding Out Its Present
"Will host Nate Wilcox and today we're joined by Simon Reynolds the author Retro Mania Pop Culture's addiction to its own past ask Simon Welcome. Thanks for having me on your podcast. It's a pleasure. This book made a big impression on me when it first came out and I'm looking forward to discussing it with you a decade after its publication or not quite a decade. I guess but Close now I can look back at the teens as well as the knots. But the fundamental argument every book which definitely jibed with. What I was feeling intuitively? was that in the beginning direction. You say I'm I'm what am imagining isn't a cataclysm. So much as a gradual wind down this is the white pop ends not with a bang but with a box set whose fourth disc never get around to plane and overprice a price ticket to the track by track. Re staging of the pixies pavement album. You play to death your first year at university if the pulse of now felt weaker with each passing year. That's because in the two thousands. The POP president became evermore crowded out by the past whether in the form of archive memories of yesteryear or retro. Rock leaching off ancient styles. So that's Kinda the thing we wanted to discuss is do you think that's still true I think everything that I write about in Richmond is still still going on Still a lot of reissuing as the festival lineups Overcrowded with people called legacy acts Either accident never a very old. Never stop playing Obama that re reunited because there is this sort of lucrative circuit now for reunion is There's a lot of younger bands who music is a kind of pastiche. Oh pick a mix of things will be all sides and beyond music as you know. TV reboot send and film franchise is based on you know quite old comic books. All beloved films from the seventies you know just endlessly get get anew the Prequel Aura. post-coup added to it So everytime I write about in the book is still going. It doesn't feel as oppressive to me. It feels like this quite a lot. More really contemporary sounding music and very digital sounding music. That feels two thousand and ten minutes. It's five so I wouldn't say I'm quite as gloomy as I was when I wrote the book but at the time writing the bogey felt we were inundated not by the past and it was this sense of. Yeah as I put it in the intro of being over the present been crowded out there. Were all these things competing for your attention and And a lot of emphasis sort of you know people dealing with these new online Al-Qods essentially repub kind of amateur amateur archives. Youtube is kind of amateur. Archive has very current. This minute kind of things in it as well but a lot of youtube content and was especially seemed to be the case in the early days of Youtube was old crap. You know that someone you know someone did a comp- you know someone's GonNa Compilation of beloved TV commercials from Nineteen Seventies UK. Kept some old pop shows as you know. Strange documentaries will never been shown since they were first ad in the in the seventies or eighties. So there it was always rich Israeli which is kind of rich as you could get lost in and That that's still going on but I feel I feel a bit more. I'm excited about music. At least I feel. There is me the fields current united feels like very now and this'll be a little bit past a ton this show airs but just yesterday. We had a controversy on twitter. Billy Irish Pretty young pop. Upswing are not knowing who van Halen was and boomer and Gen Xer van Halen fans just being a gas What did you make that you follow it out? Little Kerfluffle at all is funny on might sort of twitter feed and facebook. Everyone's like I haven't seen anyone like making fun of weather will like. Why should she know who are some of them are like old new wave? Like van Halen was shit anyway so I haven't seen anyone you know maybe moving different circles. I'm I was. I was surprised she had never heard jump. You know because that's on the radio still and it's like an old time American classic classic but Yeah why would she know. Who'd been having? I mean she probably heard and let me read the you know. The name has not stock forever reason. Yeah she's a completely different different generation. I think we probably will see tweet with someone. Says it's like someone in Van. HALEN's Day you know not knowing who Luke Benny Goodman or some sort of swing. Jazz was excise the time difference. You know that seems pretty on the money. Why would a seventeen year old when eighteen year old? Whatever she is now be aware of Finland Particularly didn't it didn't seem like You Know I. I haven't seen mcclay but I got the impression that she was kind of saying. That kind of amused self deprecating way. It wasn't like some got shallow. Shell like where you know So in quarter hour you know you say you're a musician get you've never heard of Eddie. Van Halen's legendary tap fret tapping pinged guitar technique. You know. She says she's the modern Vanhanen but she's from La I live in south South Pasadena and I think Bannon came from Pasadena. She sort of in the you know she's a modern. La Music making making music actually defunding with her brother. The van Halen had two brothers into nine and so she doing interesting new things that are very involved in the now. You know they they that success is is Is using the latest online media through a tick. Talking Elise ways kids find out things. My youngest kid is crazy into the EILLY. So you know it's it's a bright new tomorrow where Van Halen are a little footnote and wash you know. Why should they care? Yeah Yeah I took it as a good sign That your arguments not not that. I'm against your arguments with just that you worrying about in the book that the pass was right now the future and it seems like this current generation of kids who as a parent. It's it's interesting. They have such a different relationship with popular culture than we had as Gen xers a you are in Britain. I was in the states growing up but you know we were soaking and decades of reruns and old movies that were on. TV that we might have anywhere from three three to fifty channels. But still you're flipping through and you're going to see Humphrey Barton and you're gonNA see Benny Goodman. And you're going to see Frank Sinatra and kids today everything they Z.. Is Pretty much selected. And so I'm actually sort of worrying that the musical history is being lost for the new generation.

"frank sinatra" Discussed on Conan Oâ€™Brien Needs A Friend
"Of your brain, that's like you, you find your taste that's one of the problems with it as I sometimes get too much into watching things I hate to take it apart and realizing that I'm picking the scab the famous hate watching, and let's watch this. Isn't it awful, isn't it terrible? And then I do think that if there is an indeed in after life, the first thing they do is show, you how much of it your life you spent hate watching something, you know what I mean as a damning like you realize you watch the original ocean's eleven one hundred fifty times, just because the the some of the edits are so poor. Right. You're like I know I shouldn't have done that. Oh Giannis, but yeah, Frank Sinatra. The reason I some of the things fascinate me and my brother Luc, is that Frank Sinatra ran the set. And he just wanted to be done when he was done, and he had the director had no power over them. So literally, there are moments, I it's all I takes and there's moments, there's a there's a there's moments where Joey, Bishop will say his line out of order, he'll start to say his line realize that he's saying it in the wrong order, someone else then says they're lying. Then he re says his line and they kept it in the film because because when they were done there were like Frank was like, we're done, and then someone was Frank. We actually need to I said, we're out. We know it's so delicious about that is when he did guys and dolls Brando, knew that about him and Brando, would fuck up on purpose just to make him because he wasn't at the he wasn't ocean's eleven ratpac era, yet, he still like young skinny Franken had to work within the system and Brando's, a huge star Brando's a huge. Star. And he wanted to play sky Masterson, but they gave him Nathan Detroit. So watch the scene when he's like they're trying to do the bed of the site or versus the strudel snot to wants to kill Brando because Brennan's fucked up again. Remember the lynum so sorry, Frank and Frank is just like he's like eyes are bulging out of his head the whole scene. What amazes me, but that movie is when you're watching the, the great seen. Come on. You're rocking the boat. That'd be case and on your rocking the boat. And you're watching that Frank Sinatra is in the background. You know, when when else you're going to see Frank Sinatra in the background, as one of thirty people doing a supporting chorus part. And I that's one of the things that just blows me away about that was a moment in time when you could put Frank Sinatra who was a huge star. But because Brando's in the film and everyone needs to service, this incredible musical. He gets stuck take Frank you're in the background, and you're just playing at work for kids who have no idea what the fuck, we're talking about. It's like that one scene. In endgame, where they're all standing there. You like fully cow. This is an expensive scene for them all to be in frame. These are all big stars in their own, right? Yeah. There's Franks not just like sitting up and sitting sitting and standing time for those who don't know who Frank Sinatra. There's a Pika chew. Help me out here. I don't want to get this scandal.

So there were these an adolescent has, but you cl- well like this is just at eleven come on clinging to these surface identities. What kinda music do you? Listen to remember when you had your first car, and your friend got in the car and started going through your CD's does that date near what remember you had to have cool. It wasn't just that you had cool CDs. Oh, dude. I like this. Excellent. It wasn't just that. You had Radiohead your friend. Couldn't be like wait selene Dion. What you know? What?

"frank sinatra" Discussed on WBT Charlotte News Talk
"Really has perspective on like, I do we were. We were the first to come out and move media into the internet space. Nobody had left major television or anything else when we got into subscriptions. It was Netflix and HBO, and I think HBO was just getting into it or they just followed us a K remember, but it was around the time of HBO go. And it was very very new. The only platform that was available was the MLB network. The major league baseball because they had done it. Netflix was being entertainment. MLB was bringing news. I mean, sorry sports. And we were the first to go in and bring any kind of news like this online at the time. I kept saying this is the future. And I hope others will will join and we can stop doing what the major networks do and look at each other as competitors. Instead, we can kind of help each other. One thing that happened tonight. I don't know if you wouldn't have noticed it unless you were watching one of the other conservative if you will networks. We shared. We came together as a group of friends. I was on Ben Shapiro show. Ben was on mine. We had a guest from crtv. Bill O'Reilly was online I was on his Newsmax. I was on Newsmax last night. We didn't look at each other as competitors. That was really the big new. I think the big news people this audience has said for a long time. You know, if you guys could just put your differences aside, or whatever and work together, it would be so great. Well, it's happening. And I want you to know that it's happening. We're not. You know, we're still separate. We don't all agree with each other at cetera et cetera. But we are beginning to reach out to each other and stop treating each other as competitors and start looking at each other as on the same side. And while we might approach things differently. We're on the same side that is the news that I think you should hear and the mainstream media should here and the left should not here. Keep this to ourselves. When we come back together, and we all see each other as in the same boat and fighting for the same team if not the same company, that's when we can make a real difference. We need to be we need to be more like the rat pack. Frank Sinatra was Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis junior and Dean Martin they were all different. They were all different, but they ran together. And they brought their tribes together from time to time. And it was the magic that they were all friends that made them so powerful in entertainment at the time. This is the same thing that I hope is beginning to happen in the conservative movement that we all begin to come together for a greater cause. And we still are all separate and we're going to disagree, but we don't have to make enemies of each other. Because there's already enough there's already enough people that are trying to stab us in the back and in the chest. We don't need to do it ourselves. So thank you. To to all of the conservative daily caller as well. Thank you to all of the conservative outlets that we all play nicely with each other. And it was great every single one that I talked to everybody was like this is fantastic. This is fun. There's not a lot. It was. It was really good. Yeah. Good. Yeah. There's nice. Okay. So let's go through some of the some of the things that people past just talked about the, you know, the. The bathroom Bill up in Massachusetts quick rundown. Alabama ten commandments. Can you display a month state public or school grounds that passed with seventy one percent? Another one in Alabama's constitution does not protect the right to abortion or require funding of abortion also past fifty nine percent while Arkansas wanted voter ID, they got it seventy nine point five percent passed again, that's one of the most popular policies in all of of political discourse. It is an amazing seventy percent eighty percent of African Americans. Yeah. Yeah. It's it's crazy. And I don't know I was just talking to a group of people just the other day, and we were talking about this. This case you need it to buy booze. You need it to be served in some restaurants. You need it to be to drive a car, you need it to open a Bank account who doesn't have identification, and how is that possibly racist to say, can you show me my picture ID? I have no idea you have to have it for almost everything. You know, that shows that you're an adult you have to have it California had a chance to repeal a five point one billion dollar tax increase every year, California. Yep. Guess what? They did. They decided not to repeal. They did you're right. They voted. No insane. Fifty two point five percent. It was a close vote. But they also had this one's really insane. California's trying to pass a ballot measure here that if passed would allow local jurisdictions cities, whatever to govern what wrench owners may charge new tenants. Oh my gosh. So. If you. Property. Yeah. I mean, it's insane. That did fail though. Sixty two percent said new. No, you're not gonna have a city. Tell me I can only charge two hundred dollars a month. Only sixty two percent. Yes. It was still fairly close felons. Were. They be restored the right to vote as long as they were not convicted of murder or sexual offense in Florida that passed so we'll get the right to vote. So how do you feel about that? Well, think about that. When we're talking about a recount today. We're talking about two thousand you got a chat machine behind me. One of the real machines from Florida in two thousand hanging chads you are now going to take everyone who used to not be able to vote felons. And we're talking about felons. Who is honestly we're not murder attempts or sexual offense, and they complete their sentences including parole and everything they are you're going to put a ton of people on the voter rolls that we're not currently on the voter rolls. I know and so that it's likely it's going to go to the left most likely it's going to go to the left. But. You talk about the principle. It's not talking about the politics of it. Let's talk about the principle of it stand on that. I would say. If you've paid your debt society, you should probably be able to vote again. I agree. I mean, I just can't make away to where if I'm not talking about politics talk about politics. I can make a million ways know, that's not the way we should look at the I agree. We're talking about people's rights. If you've paid there, should I I'm a fan of Victor, Hugo. There should be no yellow ticket of leave. If you've paid your debt, you're done, you're done if we wanna say murder and child abuse or sexual abuse. Okay. But once you've paid your debt, I think it should be done. There's some states that allow you to vote in prison. Like, you're convicted you don't you never lose them, you keeping you keep your voting rights. What do you think about that? Because part of me thinks that you know, there there is a scenario in which. You should be able to have influence on the laws. Right. If especially if you're the one that's being affected by them. I see a situation. Right. Like, we're an out of control government would start putting people in prison. So they couldn't vote. Yeah. It is. I mean, there's an argument that libertarian side as well. But could probably talk me into it. Yeah. But I'm kind of at the point of like, it's kind of a time out for you. Got it feels good to. Yeah. But when you when you say, you know, out of control government, you're probably right? I mean, I feel like the founders would have been like what if we get one of the king's because that's what they would have done to them. Thrown them in there. And they never would've been able to vote again for here from Idaho. This is a fascinating development and this across several states. What was the conservative the conservative complaint of ObamaCare? I this is a fascinating ObamaCare election, and maybe didn't get enough attention. The number one issue among voters forty one percent of voters will the number and she was healthcare. This is pushed almost almost entirely by Democrats. The problem is healthcare. The problem is healthcare the current healthcare system. We have is called ObamaCare is the democratic system. If you remember they Republicans failed at repealing it. So it is still in place. The only part that is not in place is the is the fine attached to you being legally forced to participate. But the system has not changed at all. This is it and you think well why what are they complaining about? They got their system. And it's in right? Pass that one of the big conservative complaints care. Started was that it was forcing states, basically held states hostage. They had to put a big expansion of Medicaid through. It went to the supreme court supreme court said in the ObamaCare decision. You can't do that federal government cannot force states. Do these things they have an option to do it or not? So most of the conservative state said great were out on conservative state after conservative state if a conservative state that got on the ballot this year should we expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act in Idaho. It passed with sixty one percent of the vote in California is my Idaho. In Nebraska, it passed with fifty three point three percent of the vote in Nevada. I think there's this is happening. This is happening because. Health insurance is too damn expensive and Utah zero shape by the way, Utah passed with fifty four percent of the sorry. Go ahead. It's too expensive as we care under ObamaCare. It's only going to make the price of healthcare go through the roof, and it has and so now people are underwater, and they think the only way to do that is to is to pass Medicare just get more money from the state more money from the state. That's not the way to do it. The way to do. It is to put less restrictions on healthcare. Stop it. Let people buy it. Interstate. Let them by plan that's cheaper in. You know, God forbid it would ever be this way. But cheaper in New York, if I'm in Texas, let me buy across state lines free up the system. Pot passed pretty much everywhere. Recreational for medical marijuana in Utah. Which was interesting you had. This one's good though. This was like straight out of Pontiac, Illinois. If you've ever watched parks and recreation Nevada had a tax on the storage of feminine feminine hygiene products passed in nineteen fifty five. Well, that's I mean, if you're not seriously, if you're not if you are hoarding tampon. Yes, he should be tash. Today. Unfortunately, they did actually repeal what they call the pink tax.

Argentina hikes interest rate to 60 percent; peso plunges
"We start in Argentina where the peso has continued to fall in value. Despite the country's central Bank raising interest rates, it recorded its biggest daily loss of the year on Thursday down by thirteen percent, and it's now lost half of its value against the Dila since January, the central Bank raised the rates aren't from forty five percent to sixty percent in an effort to halt the plunge in the value of the peso. Then you gals is the BBC South America business correspondent. He told my colleague, Tim francs how it got to this point. Argentina's problem is pretty much about trust in its currency, and basically it needs to get all sorts of guarantees for people who have Argentine pesos that one hundred ten Fessel a year from now will be worth around the same value that it is worth now. So to get that confidence in it got a multibillion dollar loan from the IMF and it also hiked interest rates very record levels. Did that back in may and just this week, it asks for the pay this money upfront next year and also raises interest even higher. So it's all confidence game to keep people believing that the Argentine and pestle will have the same value next year. But clearly those doubts of founded not on whether the IMF is going to release a loan early, but presumably rather more fundamental concerns about the health of the Argentinian economy. Exactly. Just getting the money from the IMF is not enough because people don't see a long term solution to the problem. Basically Argentines should too much debt. It has a very high debt levels right now in those interest rates are not helping that debt, so needs to pay up and it needs to pretty much spend less less in its government. That's what it's been trying to do, but the government hasn't been able to implement the reforms that promised to do it promise the IMF to do. And it also promised voters two years ago and hasn't been able to get workers. Congress behind those changes because they hurt people a lot in their daily lives, and people are already suffering a lot with high inflation and low wages. So it's a very complicated situation and component of that is devaluation loss of faith in the yards in tinian currency. It's always difficult for leaders to get structural reforms through, especially the ones that bodies such as the International Monetary Fund, say a necessary to restore balanced economy, but how much of a mandate has Mr. Macri had to carry out those sorts of reforms? Well, a mockery. He came into power. There was a lot of optimism by many Argentinians, but it was still a very close election. So half of the country didn't believe him. The other half had a lot of hope. Hugh change things, and he accomplished quite a lot in the beginning of the government when he ended currency controls, which were actually causing a lot of damage to the economy, but he hasn't been able to do much. Since and the sort of honeymoon period was over last year. Now, this year has been going through all sorts of problems. There's a drought very serious problems in agriculture. There is this problem of inflation that's not going away end later this year Argentine is expected to go into recession. So on top of everything we make now speak into see unemployment rise, which is something we haven't seen still in Argentina
