A 'Hell' of a Question
"Scott furrow asked us he was the wonderful moderator, Eric metaxas and myself. And he asked about heaven and hell and I said something that I think I don't know how everybody reacted. There were thousand people there and obviously I never know how everybody reacts but I don't even know if the majority were comfortable with what I said. I don't know. I'm not saying they weren't. I'm sure many people listening, I'm sure that when the left wing that picks up this statement, they will broadcast that and they don't argue they mock, which is their intellectual level. I said, I hope there is a hell. Now, I didn't say I hope there's any turtle hell. It's not my, I don't know how long God keeps. I don't know if there's even a time. There's no time outside of this life at any event, so I don't know what eternal means in that instance. But anyway, all I know is, if people who do terrible things to other people are not punished, then God has made a truly evil world.

"It was a reasonable Capability on a field but obviously not for the boat so but you know wing sweet failures. They gorman engineers bless their hearts. they're you probably have heard of the titanium wing box. Yes and that's the heart of the whole thing. They they electronics in it. Compared to what's available now were prehistoric but they worked. You know the cdc which controls the wakes weight off-spin touted as the latest and greatest ecology. This still It's vying for the world's first microprocessor. The guy invented the the reason that everybody in the world does know about because the navy kept it a secret for twenty years but the wing sweet fully automatic wings so you you're a fan of wing sweep and it was required to meet the design requirements right performance worms. Furrow a whole bunch of reasons. I i would tell the fort gain as absolute best designed airplane that you could envision and we went through growing pains fuel system is is another thing here. We didn't get into but it was new technologies that we're not gonna have electric punks and the fuel transfer system we're gonna do it with motor flow and all by the way the seven uses quite successfully. Well the a seven has a peak flow rate to supply the engine of i'm guessing eight eight or nine thousand pounds in our of course fourteen. Well macos five advantage said wisconsin and moving around. He's not out the minutes and we went through a lot of growing pains. Not the least of which that the initial nato ops was incorrect. And reason. I know that as when i checked aboard a put it on my desk and said learn a field system and correct this hell. Hopefully it made it. If i were part of it was understanding of how the thing actually operated for years. There was this thing about super straw. How all is fuel goes through this great big piper at s- it's not true at all not that it matters but i think hasn't matured. I don't you guys would know. I mean she'll systems more not a big problem mary our time they became a big problem. In the end we started having a lot more issues back at the end. But that's a discussion for another hit. A single i had a single engine -mergency early in my career that turned into a fuel emergency but we survived so well. Here's a. here's here's what i'll add to that. As the fuel system vulnerability lies to sensors. That are here that trigger. Something else happening. And whatever show at that sensor doesn't work or whatever then you're gonna see weird stuff once again going back to a fly-by-wire airplane with a central computer. Honest stuff is not only redundant but it's like four new an a set sir. We want this x twenty nine as at everything everybody gets to answer it. Meets says what do you have. And if all four grade fine if only three agree they say the you know the the fourth guy go go away what have you so you have levels of redundancy push you have knowledge of what the hell is going on. And that's the problem with fuel system as all you had to had to go with fuel quantity.

"That's bold. you also got a lot of backlash for your colts pick. But i didn't see anything wrong with your colts back. Neither gary nor i objected to people actually pick because it was to lower too high too low and also the mechanism by which we got there. Which so let's let kind of let everybody in a little bit on the secret sauce. Here i picked this thing by putting down tally. So i had each team on a piece of paper. And then it w and l. And i went through the schedule and i tallied all the things because i didn't wanna look at the record until afterwards and it didn't want it to influence anything but then i got it done wrote. Everything turned it in editor. Mitch says change of plans. We need every single game game by gain and so then you have to go back a second time and and try to remember which wins and losses and then basically we had race the whole thing and then go back and do it from the beginning and so. I don't know if i realized that the colts were going to lose those first. Five games I don't know if i had them down. But that's just kinda of how. I made the ten and seven work eventually like sometimes we had to fit stuff together because the afc records were already printed in the magazine. And so you know. Have to kind of like Wiggle them in a little bit. And but i still believe that like that first. Five games They're brutal Can pull it up right here but like yes so with or without carson wentz you have the seahawks the rams at the titans at the dolphins at the ravens. That's a tough. I five games. You know and it's a good team but You know. I think that there's an argument to be made that they could lose all those games. Yeah i mean i look. I think they're like eleven at six i. I didn't get worked up over a ten and seven prediction for colts though with the carson wentz question mark young so i i thought it was good. I thought you were going to object to forty niners jenny so i i did I i prepared for that On the on the last one. I just think i think we're going to get a tray lance package that we haven't seen it's going to be hard to defend and i think it's going to be second half of the year really fun. That'd be my That's my estimation and one more quick story speaking of the forty niners. So ray ratto is a writer based in the bay area has a radio show They had me on last night to talk about my four hours prediction. And he said Why do you do this. But it in a way that like i think got to the heart of it. Which is the this is a stupid thing to do. And i said well you know you try to do this. And then he said Have you ever done this successfully. Because i'm trying to figure out like who are you and why you doing and so it really put me into my place made me feel pretty good in general about everything and You know but we'll see we got three teams dead on last year. Another four teams within one game of the record. And then i think another couple within two so i feel pretty good about it. He needs to get more acquainted with the per. Agnostic kantor o. We'll see you know this could be you know oracle's have ups and downs just like everybody else all right well. We've got our official predictions coming next week..

"I think that's just it's it's a good team it is. It's a good team. And the fact that. I think getting daniel hunter back is just such a difference maker for that defense especially With the secondary getting young secondary getting a little bit better. I think that's a. I think that's probably attended win team. I think it's at least eighteen. Get them to nine. Eight with connors charts if you gave them another win against detroit in a win against carolina which seem realistic. Yeah yeah you have to say. I'm still struggling to orient with these new. Seventeen win total So long we know exactly what six ten represents what eight and eight represents ten six and just going to take a little bit getting used to and very astute guar- you notice that the vikings were on a losing streak their week. Fourteen fifteen sixteen seventeen right in the height of flu season knows what's going to happen just of but if see south that's not why did that but That's it'd be. It's funny that it worked out that way Nfc south buccaneers in first place at twelve. And five the saints in second place. Seven and ten falcons third-place seven and ten panthers fourth-place four and thirteen. I we said. Yeah i'll i'll i'll object to the saints. Thank you shelby Yeah i just I i know we were just sort of talking about jameson and the issues there. I just think between jameson taste him. There's an answer to be found offensively. And i think that team that seems a whole is good enough to to win ten games this year. I guess i'm projecting everyone to win ten games when bows out to it. Yeah So to be clear. This is the parallel. This is the The parallel universe where the cowboys don't win. Mike mccarthy gets fired and sean payton leaves the saints after this year because drew brees. Isn't there anymore okay. Because quarterback whispers also incidentally need good quarterbacks as jenny. Jenny also pointed out your feeling. I'm gonna get super objected. here will vaguely objected. But let's let's see how this works out Nfc west close it out rams first place. Twelve and five. I mean the off season edition of 'em qb staffer andy Too hard to ignore their so actually at poured some rocket fuel on loss here. yeah. I only object. Yeah let's keep going seahawks in second place. Twelve and five. Oh yeah do the next one forty niners in third place eleven at six okay And the cardinals. In last six and eleven i pick against i'll i'll say object so we can play the noise one more time..

"Oh are you on the high side of the low side. Low scientists seven. Yes okay. I almost objected and said like they're going to win ten games. I don't believe that anymore. Make this take so hot that you're gonna say that they have they're gonna finish below the texans. Just do it just do it. Oh sorry do that you know me. I'm the lukewarm takes tease. He perfect drinking temperature's just not going to say they're going to go below the texans but they'll win less than seven just right okay. Jaguars seven ten. Possibly less and the texans at one and sixteen only with a season finale win over the titans who at that point presumably would be resting their players for the play. Oh beat zach. Benton burger titans or rice. Exactly yeah. that's another team. That i just cannot find a win on their schedule you know made i could actually see them beating the jaguars week one You know but after that maybe carolina but other than that The it gets pretty meager here. The jets would be the other one. Obviously that they could probably like squeeze a win out of. But i just don't see it so i'm prepared to be objected. Here we have the afc west the chiefs at twelve and five nothing. I'm thinking all right The chargers in second place that eleven six. Nothing wow i chiefs. Being a little higher than twelve wins by. But i'm not gonna jack because i don't think it's like very egregious okay. Okay the broncos in third place at nine and eight and The raiders in last at six and. Eleven gary into the raiders. Have bionic and gawk way. I'll give you a chance to your displeasure. There i mean are you projecting janiking gaga to miss eleven games this season. He never misses games. Okay good so. I feel i feel about the the afc the afc west to the nfc east go giants ten and seven first place in the nfc. I'm with that. Yep cowboys second-place nine eight washington football team in third at eight and nine and eagles in the fourth place that five and twelve. I i'm actually going to give a slightly hot take your connor. I think that you may have gotten this division. Exactly right like that. See us ending the season with having those fourteen that exactly those win totals. I will say. Eagles jets joint practices this week which i was lucky enough to attend ran into Astute eagles beat writer. Zac berman said that the eagle ceiling might be a little bit higher than we think this year so who knows pass rushes very good jalen hurts not looking bad but perhaps they're gonna make us all look a little bit silly although it could have just been the eagles making the jets defense. Look silly to end up doing just because they don't have any players. Nfc north packers in first place. Twelve and five bears second-place seven and ten. Oh vikings third-place seven and ten no object worth four hundred hundred would you. Vikings are I think worst case sending vikings are a nine and eight team. I mean i if you're if you're projecting kirk cousins to miss multiple games because of the cova protocols maybe maybe accolades it but yeah..

"The playoffs this year. Wow yeah that's how. I think they're third place in that division. Yes well you have to. You have to back this up now. You can't just like you know so it w- look. We talked about the ravens. We know the raise are defensively. I think they're red zone. Luck sort of moves back toward what it should be. Which makes him one of the best red zone teams in the league. I think that's that's the difference offensively but There's just this. I talked about a little bit last week when we did. A long shot to rule picks. There's just this sense with ben rothlisberger. That like He is it's like he's luke falk or something and it's like he's not ben rothlisberger circa two thousand eight but you can when they need to throw the ball downfield. They did last year. They did it when they had to come back and beat the colts they did in the browns. They lost the browns game because they dug themselves such a huge hole there. But i just think that offense is is going to be fine. I think it's going to be a decent offense. I think a great defense. And i think that's a i think that's a second tier contender in the afc. And when it comes to the browns the thing that makes me nervous about the browns is so many new pieces on defense. I think it does take a year for those pieces to mesh and sort of become the the some of their parts. I think the browns are definitely super bowl. Fifty seven champions but To say they're super bowl. Fifty six champions. It's just no not a chance. How do we feel about a gentleman's wager on this I will say you you. And i have both Voiced are Difficulties and trying to grow grass in our front yards so loser of this Brown's either make the playoffs or because you have them out of the playoffs here. Yeah it's out of the playoffs or it's super bowl right so there's a vast middle ground there which i would like to occupy. Just i would like to be in on this okay. So so if if they occupy jenny's taking the middle ground I just wanted to mock up you get with no no no. Gary gets out of the playoffs and i get super bowl. I feel strongly about this What do we say that we I was initially gonna propose that. Gary come over and try to grass in front yard but because i i can't i don't know how to do it but i i re seated. I ripped up and reseeded my entire lawn in the forty eight hours before my first child was born because i was already 'em paternity leave and myself. Yeah i'll i'll our. I'll do that. I'll sign up for that. I'm not gonna let you touch my lawn if i win but.

"Is it by singing. I need to also correct myself a few minutes ago. I was like it can often be connor me against gary but really. It's just the two of you laughing at jokes that i don't get here staring off into the abyss. I don't know what i was saying. In any event humor. I did lodging objection to the bills at twelve and five. I don't think they'll win. Twelve games. I like this right off the bat. Yeah see mine okay. And also i mean shelby roisin. Our producer had the law and order dungdung lined up there so few well done shelby is always at the ready with clever sound effects. I i agree with you jenny. I you know they're so here's it's interesting like there is such an element of fear in not picking the bills to win the afc east. That like i was like not bullied. But like you know you know bothered throughout the season by this. And so i was just like you know what here. Here's the thing. But i. I have the new england patriots at eleven and six as sort of a way at like. It's sort of hidden cry for help like i. I really believe in new. But i'm scared of these people over. What a statement though to say that you felt compelled are scared not to pick the bills. When the afc fcat's that is quite a statement in connor would not have been said since the late nineties mid nineties when early nineties. I'm really dates here early. Nineties correct me all right. I spent some time doing some various You know market Radio interviews when this thing came out. Because everyone's like oh you're wrong. Let's have you on the show and Spent so much time trying to validate the process. Where like you know someone for example was like how could you possibly have the forty niners losing to the vikings and i said well good question because the vikings play another team that runs the same system as them twice a year and they upgraded. Their defensive tackles which is one way to slow down the outside zone like oh we didn't know that much thought went into it. Yes however i also just really scared of bills fans and like so. This is the blend right there is. There is some science here and then there is some just real Visceral fear and so you know you combine the two of those and that is the the the secret big. Mac sauce all right. Shall we continue. Yeah let's go. So we have a patriots at eleven six and second-place dolphins at nine and eight in third place and the jets at five and twelve in fourth. And that was before the loss an injury so you know maybe some downward flexibility there In the afc The future Super bowl contending. Cleveland browns in first place at twelve and five ravens. I'll log the objection. I don't feel good about it. But i don't think there. i think. The browns are missing.

"We're gonna wait until probably after the game to take that show or i don't know if you guys wanna do like a like a series of we'll keep like eight different versions where we cover every possibility. The the one where I don't know. Benvenuti throws four touchdown passes and punches. Tom brady and the crotch to celebrate that will now saddam gonna say 'cause 'cause thursdays like a workday for me friday. I do like to get a little. Rn orange so even if we have to tape eight episodes on thursday then friday we can still kind of relaxed. That would be good for me. We also okay. Well this is. This is where i'll get my revenge. I don't know anything about this. So i'm just going to read it kind of phonetically Mitch gold issues. Our fellow colleague at the mtv is calling out connor for his guests who claim that bernard is the only guy who has a beard. Mitch points out that Charles also has a beard. That was my mitch impression to sounds a lot like me in. Just a very strutted speech pattern but yeah it's You're you're wrong connor riches. Oh it's richard okay. Then now i was wrong too. So i mean that bernard doesn't even have a beard at all. I'm looking at the guests aboard at. It appears as though bernard does not have a beard so we felt that it was necessary to issue though as an institution of journalism. We try to be factually accurate. And in this case we have fallen short. Richard was the one with the beard. And philip and david there are three beards. Wow holy crap. I'm looking at it right now. Bernard didn't have a beard. He was very sullen looking man with the sort of soviet cap on like that is that a fez is that but but without the decorations on it just sort of a maybe his head like fallen in the street and gotten wet. Lost the feather. You know i don't know but he still wears it. You know all right. Well there we go. That's i. I don't know anything about guess who i don't have any to add to that as always appreciate Mitch's careful auditing of of all content..

"Given the circumstances bigger mayfield also has not gone his second contract. I'll it. I think you have to take this one. Connor you are the resonant brown's expert at this point yes and our friends our listeners at pick prick in Norway had me on their podcast and and they they are friends of the show. and I made my brown's super bowl prediction public On on a norwegian platform obviously. Because that's where you would go to do that. And i think baker mayfield is just gonna do you know. I think he's going to take them to the super bowl and he's going to get paid after the season i think he's a guy that thrives on this kind of stuff i think they know that i think that there You know kinda rubbing his nose in it a little bit like the packers may be drafting jordan. Love and they're gonna squeeze all the toothpaste out of the to in and then afterwards it'll be fine pain because who cares would you you made it to the superbowl. Yeah i totally agree. This seems like the exact kind of situation that he would thrive in and they go to the playoffs last year and this long drought expectations are high this year. And you can just see him taking a gamble and saying you know what my lover is going to be greater next year if i have an awesome season. I'm going to go out. And i'm going to do that and i'm going to. You know prove anyone who thinks that. I might be the reason holding the team back. I'm going to prove them wrong. But i have to have a slight bone to pick connor. I'm pretty sure you first major brown to the super bowl. Pick on this podcast. Is that not true. That's right yeah. I think you didn't intend to. I think it just came out. And i'm wondering. Are you just like sticking with that take because you were so early on it or do you actually believe it. I think that i've waited my entire life to have an experience like that where your consciousness speaks louder than You know just your Your whatever you wanna call it your human mind you know and so i felt that was Divinity that was beyond like a normal experience and so..

"Wrinkles to the system to make your player better because all you're you're asking lamar to run the offense. And he i think is still doing it very wonderfully as presented to him however unless you give him the players to throw to deepen outside and unless you put in the formations in the plays and all that different components of the to do that then. I don't see how we can say that he's not a night. Whatever a forty five million dollar year player because he very may. Well be yeah. I think that's a great analysis. Connor last year's offense didn't make the like didn't have the next jump that we hoped it would and in this case all of that has been pinned on lamar which is unfair because there are a lot of parts of an offense. There's a play caller. There's you know what talent you have at the receiver position. They didn't have the right talent at the receiver position right so there was so much. Focus on well. The deep passing game needs to come alive and throws outside the numbers and certainly those were areas. That jackson was focusing on and wanted to get better at and needed to improve at like. Any quarterback has areas that he needed to improve at but that became the only metric essentially that we were judging his performance in progress by and there are a lot of reasons why an offense wouldn't become better in a specific area especially in a weird offseason last year. Where you weren't having a lot of time to work one on one with your receivers. They didn't have the personnel to sort of match that expected change or development. And so i think a lot of those assessments have been pretty unfair but as for the contract i think they will resign him. I think both he and the team want him to be there. A long term one strange factor though is that he is his own agent. And that's that's a fine route to go but that does sort of make things a little bit more complicated..

"Receivers and weather was a cooper copper. A stefan digs those guys who any safety. He's going to have trouble covering but he sort of he just struggled to cover any wide receiver out there. Which is That's that's tough to have a defensive back on the field who is that much of a liability at that point so look. They hadn't tire offseason to figure out how they can make this work. The way they did it late. Last season was blitzing. Allot which led to big numbers. But i think greg cosell. I pointed this out there. Performance when jamal adams blitz like purply basis was really not good for the seahawks. So you ended up with a guy who sort of ended up he had like yet a ton of sacks i i should be able to look at the dumber because i have a computer and internet access by won't right now but he had a lot of sacks is the point but overall it was not a good thing when he was a blitzing that much and not to mention you you now have. Every team knows when he's on the field. Okay well If he's gonna say coverage that's good news for us and then he's probably gonna come and blitz and y'all will be will be ready for it now. We carries nine point five sacks last season very good very good we can just call this from now on to say p carols wearing them pants. You know like wearing them. I really hope this catches on. I just hope there's a day when some coach or gm opens a press availability by just saying. Have you ever heard about connor. Orders pants and goes into explain. Maybe a a misstep that they had taken but Yeah it's really versatile core quarterback that can work for safety's just a real oracle pants moment now. That doesn't work. I on combining many brands here. Connor ores pants. What it will be known as just to support your theory even further. I think it. Jamal adams net yards over. Average is a fun thing to play around with on Nfl statistics and You know they were at times very much better with him. Not on the field which didn't happen a lot. But you know also worth noting so with jordan brooks my ex factor on the who So jenny actually. I have this up the the second highest Player in terms of net yards over average jordan brooks last year for the seattle seahawks. So so how about this When he was in the game average rush against the seahawks three point three yards when he was out of the game. Almost three point nine yards. Let's see here average pass. When he was in the game five point nine yards when he was out six point. Four so honor. You know what that is. That's a real x factor. That is any can kick though. I don't know. Can you please say doubt. Yeah all right the the quarterback situation here. We know josh allen got paid and we kinda wondered if there would be a domino effect when it comes to lamar jackson and baker. Mayfield agassi sam. Darnold josh rosen will not be getting. A contract extensions this summer but Lamar jackson and baker mayfield to this point had not gotten their second contracts and i don't know let's start with lamar Because this one is the more annoying conversation so we'll get this out of the way but the yeah there's i don't know for a third consecutive off season. They're sort of this talk of well. You know. I think the nfl might figure out. Lamar this year. And.

"Kinda you know given the well we have the code year. We don't have as much money so we can't really spend right now type of thing But jamal adams is a guy who ended up getting his contract. And i just thought it was. I think he's a fascinating player. I think it's a really strange situation. He is in with that defense. And i was kind of wondering how the seahawks would approach this after what was A first season seattle. That's had some highs but also also had quite a few lows and i think if you trade for a player and you give up quality draft capital and as part of that trade. You don't agree to an extension with the player. Then you're setting up a situation for a year from now or a year from the trade which is a situation. The hawks were in with adams's summer. Where you almost have to give the player contract extension or at least the player has a lot more leverage right because you say well we gave up a lot and let me give him the contract extension because we already gave up a lot. So in a sense adams did have leverage as a result of that. But i know what you're going to say. Gary you're gonna say that that is a fallacy. I think it might be a little bit of sunk cost fallacy. But they also. They have to figure out what they want to do with him. I i don't know as far as the seahawks defense goes so yeah joel adams who is a bach safety. Some might say more of a more of a linebacker at this point and you already have a team. That has i mean. They've invested heavily at linebacker. Bobby wagner they have a jenny's guess who misery man jordan brooks from right so they have invested in linebackers. You're essentially going to have in a lot of instances three linebackers on the field although maybe in that division at this point in time i mean you've written about this conner maybe needle one more size. Upfront yeah i mean i think that the nfl is shifting again and so. I think you're going to start to see some of those hybrid players go by the wayside. They had a nice like five or six year window there. But i think We're going back to big people a little bit..

"He's like that's people are saying. That's what i want. And urban meyer saying no. Give me the kid who was always famous. And you know didn't necessarily have to work for anything but It two things on this. That still drive me insane. The first in the monday night. Game louis riddick and bryan and brian greasy were saying. Oh yeah travis. Each and before he got hurt. They're saying We talked to everybody this week and production meetings. He's going to be running back. He's not a wide receiver so we spent four weeks talking about how he was going to be a wide receiver. And that this pick had some sort of a meaning beyond i took a first round running back but then no you're just gonna use them as running back and second. How flawed is this personnel strategy. And how hard is it going to be to back out of it if you need to fire this guy right like if urban meyer drafting off of rivals you know in stocking this thing. Full of you know frail five star recruits. Like if you're gm that comes in after this. It's it's going to be like when chris ballard got to the colts. It's like whoa. Like i got some work to do here now. The was different situation. I think ryan grigson actually did have a good offensive line there but there is some stuff that was messed up there. But you know there's going to be a real like holy crap moment there what's going to be. We just got a bunch of like really fast guys from college and we need to do a lot tier to build the infrastructure. I saw recently. Urban meyer gave peter king of the football morning in america column an example. That shows how he wants to be running his team in jacksonville and i don't know if the example showed what meyer thought it showed was. How josh allen. Obviously his josh allen. The buffalo josh allen was in the hospital with his wife she just given birth and there was a recommendation from the nurse regarding supplementing formula and the wife wanted to only breastfeed know all the specifics but the end result was urban meyer. Josh allen told urban meyer which great that they have a close relationship but then urban meyer called. The ceo of the hospital then apparently gave some order to the nurse to back down from her directions as a medical professional. And you know. I think it's sort of interesting to for meyer to be trying to share with a prominent national media member that he has this influence in jacksonville where he can call the ceo of a hospital and have them give advice to the medical professionals on behalf of his player. He also made the point that he wants his players to be able to perform at their top levels. And that means everything off the field settled and if he can ship in in ways to make sure that's the case then he will and you know given some of the parts of myers track record at florida and ohio states. That hasn't always been done in a way. That is good for society at large so i thought that was a somewhat strange example to illustrate and really all i took from that is that he's sort of exerting his power and influence in the city and i think it all gives a little bit of an indication perhaps of how he views himself how uses authority and the sway that he pulls and that's not always a great thing in an nfl locker room with a team of professionals.

"Fun here are urban. Meyer has had something of a. I'm going to call it a rocky. August not an ideal august and championships are not necessarily decided in august but this is sort of his first impression on this jaguars team and P prisco of cbs sports Had sort of mentioned he had heard that folks there are maybe not wild about the way urban. Meyer is running things in jacksonville to this point. But look i. I've said this before. And i'll continue to say this even when it is demonstrably wrong. This season i do think. The jaguars should be aiming for the postseason. I think when. Trevor lawrence comes in. You have just made such a monstrous upgrade to your rosser not to match. They added other good players too. I think the team should be aiming for a run into wildcard spot instead of saying well. I don't know maybe. We're three years away which i mean what. What was the point of all this then. Yeah i mean i. It's just. I'm not surprised. And it seems from the beginning. I think they're draft strategy beyond Trevor lawrence seemed off and Seemed like a college coach coming in. And saying i know more than all these other people and i'm going to run it my way and i don't have to draft Smartly like other people do because i'm better and And it's already not working out in you hate to have that Say that to comment at the hands of injury by somebody. But i do think that there is a general sort of misperception at how difficult this jump was going to be to then make your second highest ranking coach. Also someone who's never coached in the nfl. I think was a difficult decision and an interesting decision and then to sort of then just surround yourself with lifers who have no head coaching experience in the nfl but have sort of always just sort of bounced around the nfl. Getting another job after job it to me it just none of it seemed to make any sense where you know. There is no person in here. Who can kinda of grab the wheel when it's when it's headed off the road and that's kind of the direction it's headed right now. Yeah i mean to some degree a story. At some point this season that urban meyer needs to update his approach from college. And translate it to. The pros was inevitable. But you could also say that inevitable for a reason and that the transition is not always the easiest one and urban meyer had a very specific way of running his college programs and that he might be less pliable or amenable to change because of his success in the college ranks and then not to contradict myself where we were just talking about. Oh winston had a great preseason game on monday night but what does it really mean the big picture..

"You can manage that you hope that maybe with the full off-season traditional training camp Maybe some that got coach out of them. But we hear all the stuff about like. Oh this you know quarterback academy and and he's come along so well and and then he goes out there and it's one throw but it's the same mistake we saw just a thousand times in tampa. Yeah and i think the vision of the field coaches often say is one of the hardest things to fix or at least. It's the thing that drives coaches to the breaking point with a quarterback. You often hear what their vision is terrible. We can't fix it like it's over like whenever a team gets to a breaking point with a quarterback and decided to go in another direction that is often a factor and certainly you know it was a factor in tampo now. Of course they moved onto. Tom brady so you could say that. Didn't work out. what they've stayed with. James i don't know but i think if they did stay with jameson hadn't gotten brady. I think they would have the same reservations of like but we can't fix this thing. That is essential to your job. So i don't know maybe it's fixed. Maybe it's not but there seems to be a disproportionate amount of optimism and new orleans. I don't know. I was watching the game with my mom and she goes. But didn't this guy already happened and i guess bomb. He said exactly a very long chance longer than most people every chance. I wasn't good. I will say that if we all harken back to our division preview from a couple of weeks ago someone is feeling very good about his. Ian book x factor. Mentions there in book got a little. Bit of pop. On tv sean. Payton may be stacking him up as his hidden sort of tom brady for when this inevitably explodes but yeah i mean to journeys point. You can't complete an extremely important function of the job. Like seeing people in front of the people that you're supposed to be throwing two or anticipating that you you can't be a quarterback and you know this is coming from somebody who is a terrible grammarian still manages to collect a paycheck as a writer as our editor. Mitch knows but You know i'm an outlier. And i don't think that jameson necessarily in that same boat there. Yeah i think. There's a know i i've seen the argument like well. Look at ryan. Tannehill his turnaround in tennessee. I think the titans offense is much different than what tannehill was asked to do in miami and not to mention just super quarterback friendly and not that sean payton offenses not quarterback friendly but it just. It doesn't address the issue that jameis winston has had and again. Maybe maybe it. Maybe this is it. Maybe having this off season is what will ultimately make it work and we will see jameis winston who has plenty of physical tools to work with ear. End up working out here but I i don't know and again we're not prote- som and i'm not going to Jump on on this this. I don't know fascinating. Take that's been thrown around that. Some is is somehow the equivalent lamar jackson. But you can argue. You could build a poor. Man's lamar jackson type offense around tease him hill. He's he's a different kind of reiner. I lamar is much more dangerous..

"Hill pod necessarily corrupt But it it. It felt very cold to me the entire situation. Shocking with sean payton involved. But just watching the whole thing. Unfold on monday night and listening to louis riddick. Brian greasy talk about it and they were basically inferring that throughout the week during the production meetings. Tatum hill was increasingly frustrated. Seem to have Acknowledged the fact that he was falling behind in this job. And sean payton kept telling the broadcast crew and tastes hill. That like you're just too valuable just the way you are and you know that kept being the sign is like i can't sacrifice you as a quarterback because i need you all these other places and so they just kept repeating it and repeating that to the point where i was like. What are we doing here. Then what's the. What was the point of all this. Was this ever a competition did he. You know and was james just so bad that they had to keep saying it was a competition until there was one day when sean payton could like slam the table mic okay. Now it's over. He acted like a quarterback finally. Well that's the thing. There's definitely a practicality to saying okay. Well we can use taste him on this other role whereas jameis winston if he's number two quarterback he's just you know he's going to be on the sideline the entire game so there's that but just looking at it again purely from what these guys have put on film in you know. We saw james for years in tampa he had very limited number of snap said he took last year but I've written about this play. I will probably write about it again. Before the season starts he played that one half against the forty niners at home when drew brees originally got hurt. And he was protecting a two touchdown lead and he threw the most jamesy dangerous mistake throw and bounced off jimi wards chest basically but the issue with james and. We heard all this stuff about like. Oh you know. He had the lisa surgery now so now he has now he has. I don't know x ray vision. Something like that. To whatever that was being termed as he doesn't have to squint anymore like george costanza spotting the spotting the the squirrels and seinfeld but yet he just makes these mistakes that are i don't know i don't know how you can justify him. It's it's not it's not misreads. it's not trap coverages. That are fooling him. He is just simply like not seeing full grown men on the second level of the defense and just putting the ball endanger again and again and again and again. And i'm not quite sure how.

Which tells us what we're going to be talking about. And i was trying to give it a clever little Title like last week was the evening of mystery which i thought was a very intriguing way to start the show. This one is news roundup at. I just can't think of anything more exciting than that. Well i think the biggest news of the week is that we allowed gary gramling back on the show. After last week's the bockel with him making michael badgley an x factor throwing the guess who game into chaos connor naive ungracious enough to allow gary to return and so i just wanted to start off by saying matt you know. Hopefully we can all move forward together but you know we We feel as though we've extended an olive branch by welcoming you back. Gary this is how nice of a person jaas afterwards said. Do you think we too mean to gary. And i said no i mean think about it michael. Badgley like that was just like there. Was this time in our lives. That's never gonna come back. And i'm happy for michael badgley because everybody deserves in their life wants to be considered an x factor. But this was not the forum to do it. You guys we just look at this in different ways. I see myself as more as someone who sort of. I came up with an innovative new way to play the game. Like i came up with the infield shift or something of that and perhaps like the infield shift in baseball. It's not fun but it's effective so much so that many people are accusing you of ruining everything because of that self pretty much. That's that's a legacy that i will proudly go down with the great. Innovators are not appreciated in their own. Time gary that applies to you apparently in your own mind at least. That's what i'm saying when the kids of the next generation are playing some.

"furrow" Discussed on Democracy Now! Audio
"War by the not war that took place. During the last two decades in afghanistan and cost a lot of civilian casualties. Many people were drawn. Bombed afghanistan was the most drone country in the world for almost two decades. And almost nobody talked about it. You already mentioned. Ramstein amy here in germany also other states especially germany where they supported the brutal war on terror took place in afghanistan and elsewhere. And what we nowadays often see. Is that You know we see also in the media in my opinion often very privileged afghans Who talk about the failure of the west. And they're blaming them for for all the mass would just riots. But this just how story there actually mandate within afghanistan who suffered a lot who were victims of corruption massive corruption that took place in kabul which was fueled by the americans and their regime which was never a democratic regime and the victims of all these developments. A lot of them became radicalized. They became angry and not all of them. But i think a lot of them as i've seen on the ground in many different areas of the country already also joined taliban and support that. 'cause there is an unusual scene going on some descriptions with the taliban being the first veterans of the afghanis. Who want to get into the airport right outside. Working with the us. The first veterans of their documents. Now mind you. These people from afghanistan are fleeing them. Can you talk about the relationship. Between the taliban and the united states who've been negotiating for months in doha that last statement from the taliban saying you cannot go past august. Thirty th to government is actually from doha but the afghan government has trough. Connie was completely excluded from all these negotiations. So is it such a surprise that in the end he ran exactly. I mean what to could do during the last years also especially through the help of us. Special envoy my holly who has afghan with some self and the trump administration was to to signed steel which was signed them up in about one year ago. One and a half here we go. And this was a huge success. For the taliban known political field internationally they gained a lot of legitimacy legitimacy through the steel and actually it was sometimes sometimes really surprising how the americans react is how donald trump reacted back then for example. The taliban said li did not. We don't want to talk with the with the kabul government. We don't want to talk with the puppets we want to talk to. The puppet masters was literally what they said. And the americans agreed to that so they re to that and we also had this very strange phone call of donald trump who called malabo that the taliban leader the leader of the political office of the taliban in doha and start to talk with them without any protocol it seems i mean it was also a mr himself was present there but afterwards the headlines were really somehow funny actually the that call i think the donald trump had the specific policies of his relationship to wash off ronnie was kind of broken. He didn't respect us. He didn't respect the guy who wanted money from west. He respected the guys more who fought against the. Us successfully were alpha males like him. And that's why he also said to to the leader. Hey you guys were tough people. That's what he said. And of course all these things led to what we see now because at the same time as you mentioned the afghan government was excluded from the talks and actually it was necessary to have all these different players on the ground talking with each other. Because this would have been the aim of intra-afghan talks. The deal was just you know. Throw we with the. Us was focusing on the withdrawal by the taliban also assured that they would Participate in two inter-afghan talks. Unfortunately these talks were sabotaged by by both sides. Actually the todman continued attacking afghan forces and afghan civilians at the same time the afghan government of any. They didn't want to release more prisoners. Listen day also fault all kinds of different reasons to not participate in the talks to not lose power and money of course but at the end they lost all fit furrows. If you can talk about now this warning issued by the taliban the us cannot go past august thirty first. you've got thousands of people making their way to the airport at the airport now. president biden has invoked wartime act to get commercial airlines to come to evacuate people. But it's not clear can all happen in the next eight days. What do you see possibly happening. And how do you feel about the international financial institutions cutting off money to the afghan government because it's taliban right now as the country continues to descend into a humanitarian crisis. Feel the moment you know. It's not just about you know my job. Doing you know cutting continuing my joke regarding ghanistan jones but also emotionally. It's difficult because of all the things that are happening. So i think that the taliban they know debts the any kind of afghan stayed in future will be dependent on foreign money and which includes american money otherwise the people have against the state itself cannot survive so the taliban must be really pragmatic and try to find a way to build in a very inclusive government within a short time because otherwise they will have a lot of problems not just with the donner's but also with their own population because it will be population. The most of the afghans are not running to the airport to flee. Most of them are forced to stay in the country and for them. It will be very very difficult to live under the sanctions. We i already talked to a lot of people over there who don't have money. I can't send money to my relatives icon. Support them at the moment because mommy ground western union and all these other institutions. Shut down. You're working at the moment and people are becoming more angry and you know help. They feel much more helpless so the international community also ngos international organizations to red cross etc. All these different players they needs to focus on the on the afghan population and not letting them alone again. With the taliban at the same time. I think that financial aid can be a very useful tool to use it also to put some pressure political pressure on the taliban. Because if you want it or not the future we'll see more and more governments working with them. I want to thank you for. Furrow is joining us.

In the Circle With Deleesa
"So excited to have you here today to lisa so excited to be here honored. Actually yes so. We are all huge fans of the circle. We were on season one. And then it feels like y'all really came in hot in the second season right and i'm guess some benefit of like having watched the first season but it really feels like people came in with their strategies and like how they were planning to win this thing much like real social media you know this is kind of social media can be curated in there some things that are like shiny in that real and other things are very genuine and it really feels like you were able to call so base a real connections with people that lasted even after the finale. Can you say more about like how you feel like you managed to do their -absolutely throughout the entire game. I was really being myself is redundant to constantly say you know. I was so genuine but i really was. When you're speaking to other players in the circle that's still only communication. You have with the outside world so everything is amped up times one hundred so when you're talking to somebody and you say i made a connection you really made that connection and it extended beyond the game for all of us. I think honestly In are you still in contact with any of the players. I talk to all the players. I've even communicated with season one cast everybody great. I have to say that the circle is just a different type of reality show and the love really does extend outside the show. The support encouragement like the friendships. Like we all encourage each other we promote each other. We chat and gossip. And where actually friends. I know people probably. I don't know if they don't believe it. Or it's just taboo but we really are in this many call. That is cool because you don't always see a dead with reality so definitely not reality. Shows like the drama that goes on or like a you know you can kinda tell sometimes like people were fronting for the show. You know like all.

Why Dogs Kick Dirt in the Air After Pooping
"Our story. This week is from david. Be clear who you'll find on medium dot com and here is why dogs kick dirt in the air after pooping. It's not just because they get a kick out of it. I have a dog. And he does this. Weird thing he takes a dump and then scrapes the ground with his hind legs throwing dirt in my face. If i was a farmer. I might appreciate this behavior. I could plant some of the smaller root vegetables in the furrowed ground and would even have a steaming pile of manure right at hand. But since i don't grow potatoes i don't appreciate the dirt in my mouth. It's a nuisance. And i don't see any purpose behind it and yet there must be one. He can't be fleeing cords of dirt into the air and leaving behind huge scratch marks just for the heck of it so why why is my dog scratching the ground. Well it turns out it has to do with his smelly feet. Dogs have smelly feet. The scientists who study animal behaviour are called is all adjusts and beside sitting in a mosquito infested. Jungle observing the grooming and copulation habits of chimpanzees allah. Jane goodall ethos colleges also studied dogs since dogs are even worse at filling out questionnaires than chimpanzees. These studies are observational in practice. This means that to uncover the mystery of ground scratching. And if i had to follow dogs around and record the frequency time and surrounding circumstances of the curious behavior from records like these the theologists then spends a hypothesis an explanation that makes sense and matches the observed data one such brave all logistic who presumably got his face. Repeatedly sandblasted is bekov. Phd professor emeritus of ecology and evolutionary biology at the university of colorado boulder. He studied ground scratching by mail domestic dogs back in the nineteen seventies and years later in an article for psychology today summarized his findings like this dogs have scent glands in their paws and when they scratch they might be trying to send in olfactory message to other dogs by spreading the sent from their paws or by sharing the odor of the pee or poop. They deposited so yes. Dogs feet have ascent they smell. They don't smell like cheese since they don't wear moist socks but they do smell at least according to bekov who i presume must have buried his nose in dog pause to check what a brave man the source of the odour as bekov snow. Certainly uncovered are so-called inter digital glance tiny organs between a dog's toes that produce fair ramon infused secretions side note. Many hoofed animals have such glands in their feet as well. But i pity the theologist who verified this by sniffing the hoofs of cooking donkey. So when my dog is scratching the ground some of the inter digital secretions moos into the soil and are subsequently propelled into the air. For better dispersal moreover. If i understood bekov correctly the dust in the air also helps spread the poop smell. Which reminds me. I should really dust off my bathroom as to the stretch marks. This is what bekov has to say. Scratching also leaves a visual mark on the ground ground scratching could be yet another former social communication and taken together peeing. Pooping and ground scratching are a good example of how dogs may use what he called composite signals to enhance their messages to other dogs by using both olfactory and visual components. Now of course. I don't communicate through smells just as my dog doesn't communicate in english and i can't decipher the scratch marks. My dog leaves on the ground. Just as i can't decipher that chicken scratches. My doctor leaves on medical prescriptions. But i guess as long as i keep speaking english with my dog. It's only fair that he keeps speaking dog with me wrapping up as beck off rights. Ground scratching by dogs serves different functions depending on who is doing the ground scratching. Who else is around. And what. They're trying to communicate. I suspect my dog is just sharing memes either way. There are a form of composite signals that involve visual olfactory and possibly auditory components in other words there multimedia messages now not all dogs threw dirt in your face only about nine percent of dogs. Do i'm in the dirt eating position of having one who does but now that i understand why he does it that simply a way for him to send messages to other canines in the neighborhood. I'm more tolerant of it.

This episode initially aired during our building necessarily. And here's Jenny Kaplan to tell you more about her. Hello for Wonder Media Network. I'm Jenny Kaplan and this is encyclopedia Lamonica. When you imagine England in the era of Shakespeare, you may think of a golden age with the booming economy, a rising interest in exploration and growing merchant middle class, but there was more to it than that. Today traveling to the underbelly of London home to thieves, jokers and tricksters who played both sides of the law are villainous at the day was the most infamous woman of that world. Let's talk about Mary. Frith better known as mall covers. Mary's legacy lies somewhere between truth and legend. Records from her time are often exaggerated, biased or made up. That said here's the story of the cutting mall. Cut Purse as we know it. Mary was born in London in about fifteen eighty four. Her father was an honest cobbler. Nonetheless, Mary's first brush with the law occurred when she was sixteen years old. She was prosecuted for sealing purses. Mary's family quickly grew frustrated with her unf- eminent behavior. Some accounts say that in sixteen o nine. They learned her out to the docks by telling her. There was a wrestling match, and then tricked her onto a ship headed for north. America Mary managed to arrange passage back to shore with betting money. She brought for the match. When she made it back to London she quickly joined a group of pickpockets, earning her name mall cut purse in reference to the way pickpockets cut the purses straight off of their victims hits. Mary also earned a name for herself. Her tavern performances. She would sing dance. Play her loot and crack jokes wall dressed in male clothing. That was quite shocking at the time. To win a bet mall wants gallivanting through the streets of London on the city's most famous performing horse. She wore men's clothing dramatically carried a banner and Blue Trumpet. As soon as the locals recognized her, a riot broke out. The fans and enemies went while some tried to pull her off her horse while others cheered her on mall, just barely managed to escape and collector winnings in the next furrow.

In sixteen eleven mall was arrested and thrown in jail for a few months, possibly because of her seemingly inappropriate performance, the following year after pieces were outlawed in the country for their often vulgar nature and tendency to attract pickpockets.

Jeff Passan on MLBPA's Return-To-Play Proposal
"The negotiations between Major League Baseball and the Players Association to start the two thousand twenty season, Continue Jeff Passan reported. Reported last night that the player Ford a counterproposal on Sunday, in which they suggested a one hundred and fourteen game season from June thirtieth to October. Thirty first, which Jeff wrote is expected to be immediately dismissed by the League. The union remained steadfast. The players should receive their full prorated salaries. The Union did suggest possible salary defers than acknowledgment by the players that amid the coronavirus, pandemic and unrest. Flow issues could prove problematic for the owners The players proposal also included the idea of an expand class for two years major league. Baseball's proposal suggests one year postseason that goes from ten teams to fourteen a salary advance of one hundred million dollars split among players during the second spring training, additional commitments to players, wearing microphones in the field and other broadcasts enhancement, and there was an offer to hold events such as an off season, all star game or Homerun Derby to generate additional revenue. This was a hopeful Development Sean doolittle, the nationals. Reliever tweeted out that the Washington major leaguers will provide salary relief to minor leaguers. Who saw their salaries cut last week? Covers baseball for ESPN, and Jeff we just went through the details of your report from last night. I think the most important question this morning is what's next? It's a great question buster because I think what's next is going to be the most important element of this entire thing in that is. What's the reaction of owners after the unions first proposal? And I think you did a great job in your Sunday, notes column of pointing out the fragility of this on account of there, being owners who don't WanNa play in two thousand and twenty. If this proposal angers the the League side owners in particular enough where what is a relatively small block of honors, now suddenly starts to gain a little bit of political traction in trying to convince some of the more moderate owners that this is a lost cause, and it's just not worth playing the two thousand twenty season. Then I think they're actually in trouble, but if if the. door being cracked open for furrows which it was done in this proposal leads to something more substantive and productive. I think something can come together on relative quick order because that's that's how it has to like. If they want to play this year, something needs to get this week and it's on owners right now to come back and really facilitate that after the players offer. Deaf I'm glad that they're talking I. Mean it's a good thing that they're talking because there's been so much time that's passed in the last Three and a half years since the CBA of two thousand sixteen, in which they haven't been talking, but my God they are so far apart. It's incredible to me. The what this is shutdown lake March twelfth thirteenth, and yet it still feels like to use the football comparison. It's like we're at the one yard line. There's about fifty eight seconds to go and there ninety nine yards of field ahead of them when you're talking about the financial issues. Either the safety protocol, and then the challenge of pulling everything together which I'm sure you're hearing the same thing from general managers. That I am like this is not something you can just execute overnight. No in regarding that latter part I assume that that they have known for awhile now. What the expectations are going to be and I I know some general managers that I've talked with said they're. They're trying to get their facilities in order, so you know secondary, club houses and a lot of the things that are in the health and safety protocol. They've at least been trying to start, but let's let's look at the logistics of getting everybody around the country right now. between coded and. And and the civil unrest that's going on travels knock going to be particularly easy and getting people from place to place city city. You don't even know where you're. Joe It half the time when it comes to either get into the city or are you going to be your Spring Training Facility? I mean these these are all open questions right now. but yeah I I would say instead of the one yard line. You've got like both sides in their tunnels right now or in their. I mean that that is how far apart they are, and and the biggest question to me has been.

Ellen Bass Reads Frank X. Gaspar
"My guest today is Ellen Bass a chancellor of the Academy of American poets. She's received a lambda literary award for poetry. The Pablo Neruda Prize for poetry and fellowships from the California Arts Council and the National Endowment for the arts. Welcome Ellen thank you so much for joining us. Thank you for inviting me. I'm delighted to be here so the poem Eve decided to read for us is co hogs by frank x Gaspar. Can you tell us why this particular poll cut your attention. John as you're looking through the archives. I love this song for many reasons. One of them is it's so primal it so visceral. It brings us into one of the most basic human experiences and I feel like I'm having that experience experience when I read the poem. Then I should say just in case people aren't familiar The title is co hogs and Co hogs. If you don't know our large clams excellent Let's hear the poem this is Ellen Bass Reading Co hogs by frank x Gaspar Co Hawks. It was for the wind as much as anything. It was for the tidal flats for the miles of bars and the freezing raising runs between them. Blue and darkened in the withering gusts for the buckets for the longtime friend rakes for our skin burning and the bones beneath all their ache for the bent backs for the huddle toward warmth beneath are incapable incapable layers. How we beat ourselves with our arms the breath we blew the narrow steam that spun away? How we we searched there till drag all marks then the feel of them as we furrowed then it was surgery and forced together like Stones Stones Opel or Pearl or plain rock ugly except they were beautiful their worlds and purple stains pains the Bucket Swire cutting with their weight for the sky? Blazing it's sinking. Orange fire for the skies is black streaks with night rising winter sudden back sure word home the tide creeping like a wolf both for the little stove warming is own orange. Fire the old pot. The steam the air and savor the close room the precious butter. The blue fingers throbbing. Our bodies in all the customs of weariness the supper succulent of the freezing dark. See come up and hunger its own happiness its own domain immeasureable insurable. It was for the hunger that was co hugs by frank x gas bar which originally appeared in the January eleven in two thousand sixteen issue of the magazine. So tell me more about this wonderful poem. I I was thinking when we're reading it in a it's worthy of note that you really capture. I think the rolling quality I mean it feels like one big breath but there's something also for me about poetry in that it's both a palm of of of discovery but also at home about poetry in some way about the making of poetry and ours. POETICA I'm so glad that you said that because the more I was reading being this poem and thinking about talking here. That's exactly on my notes. I wrote down ars POETICA. It does feel exactly like like that process of writing a poem of searching of describing and describing until you come to something thing that you didn't know you're going to come to exactly like that and I love the music of the poem the sound and Frank S bar is a a master of sound and really works through sound move. sapone forward through sound and that wonderful repetition of course of if it was four which is such a strange and wonderful way to start this poem. Right Right You know it was for the wind as as much as anything. What where we're in radiantly immediately in the experience and The way that that repetition just drives the poem forward and has that force of moving through the music of the poem. I love so much and I love I love how primal this poem is. This is something people have been doing for a thousand years more. I don't know how long Colonia exactly and The maury read the poem. The more I think about how. It's a poem without judgment That there's adversity here. They're called and then they're hungry and there's a we in the poem. I'll just stop. He's not doing it alone. Hello I want to get to the we in a moment but came. Yeah so somebody else might think I love doing this. I hate doing this but he is beyond judgment in this poem. It's it's deeply rooted in the world and I think that really works with the ours. POETICA too because that's what we're trying to do in poetry is to get it more or at least what I'm trying to do. Get get more deeply rooted into the experience into the world and see then what we discover cover and it made me think of Galway canals line Whatever what is is is what I want? What and I feel that in this poem that he just wants it all that wonderful line? I love that line about the ugly about as literally what I underline here ugly except beautiful yes worlds and Purple Stains S. Oh and that to me is like so much experience. which we you know poetry were? You're talking a little bit and this poem is a little bit about poetry's four and one thing is to talk talk about that line Often the things that fascinated us sublime rides that line and poetry is able to you of course name things that we might otherwise miss or or dismiss As worthy of note. So what about this. We I mean. Obviously it's all of us but warm but what is there a specific we feel. I mean it's probably his family or he and you know his cohorts but is is a communal way and that feels so primal to you know. I can't imagine that a thousand years ago people didn't do this together So often we don't experience it because we eat alone or in our little Oh boxes or houses or places or wherever if we're fortunate enough to have such but he he's letting you know the the Labor that goes into achieving. What is this kind of brief? Gloria the end our bodies in all the customs of weariness. Yeah I mean that's a great phrase. I Know Supper are sucked out of the freezing Darcy. Come up and I love how once they get into the warm kitchen with the steam and the stove in the close room that the freezing dark see is introduced. It's it's brought into the warm warm and there's so many of these Opposites that are connected you know. There's the steam in the beginning of his breath and then in the end the steam in the room room and then he repeats. That are arranged. Fire you know I. It's the sinking orange fire of the sun going down and then it's the little stove warming its own orange fire so the outside and the inside are so connected in this poem and the part that really makes me think about poetry is when he says then it was surgery and forced together
Trump can’t win in 2020. But Democrats can lose.
"Our next guest says Donald Trump can't win reelection but the Democrats kratz shirt can lose it so over the weekend some of the President's Republican allies in Congress. There are many wasted no time defending him as pressure builds now over over this impeachment inquiry. I think this whole thing is a sham. I can't believe we're talking about impeaching the president based on an accusation based on hearsay. Look Look Democrats wanted to impeach because Rudy Giuliani talked to a couple of Ukrainians and good luck with that. What do you make of this exchange. Presidents Alinsky says we are almost ready to buy Roy Moore from the United States for defense purposes and president trump replies. I would like you to do us a favor though you just added another word no favor though yesterday in the transcript so that's kind of how that went and with us us for more tonight is Rick Wilson Longtime Florida Man Longtime Republican strategist who is soon following up on his first book. Everything trump touches dies with a new Work Ryan against the devil which is due out in early twenty twenty. It is a thrill to have you as always thank you sir so tonight. I am reminded Sean Spicer danced to Saturday night fever on dancing with the stars and Sebastian Gorka is on board a US government plane with our secretary three of state going to Europe. We saw that selection of trump allies. There's a whole population the people in Washington who think this might be ballgame here. There are a lot of very nervous folks right now and they're thinking that they've tried to hide in the tall grass for a long time they play the Magi game when they have to and they quietly whispered reporters. I'm really concerned. My Brow is furrowed. I'm deeply deeply troubled and they understand that there's a point where you can't can't just keep pretending and we're rapidly reaching the point where you can't just keep pretending and you know what was bill bar doing in Italy. Why are they making. These phone calls to Australia. We want more the details about Ukraine Gorkhas probably in Europe pitching fish oil tablets or whatever it is he does for a living now but these guys are all of the peace there this flotsam watson around trump so many involved in this and I hope they're all tonight pondering second mortgages so they can lawyer up. Can you imagine what it feels like for the Aussies as a lover and appreciator of history there we were side by side on the beaches of Normandy what we want from them now a little information so help us help us blackmail a competitor in a political election the US they're trying to extort foreign powers by using the Awesome Awesome Majesty of the President's Office and the powers of the United States government trying to extreme. It's just it's the lowest level thug behavior. I have a dramatic reading from the twitter account of Jonathan Martin with New York Times. It's about politics and you're political party. The squeeze is on Republicans left in high income congressional districts and states here is college plus Weitz. I just love how demographers instantly reduce entire groups of Americans against forty six percent already for impeach and remove fifty two percent for the inquiry fifty-seven percent believe trump thinks he's above the law just one percent percent fewer believe he abuses the power of his office fifty one percent believe he's committed crimes as president so you start thinking wow the Republicans should be very nervous us then. I look at Rick Wilson. Down and trump can't win reelection but the Democrats can certainly lose it. It's an old problem explain. The Democrats crafts have a great gift for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory unless they have generational candidates who are who are who have phenomenal skills they had to in our lifetime they had Barack Obama and they had Bill Clinton who are both naturally gifted political figures. They understand how to connect with people. They have charisma for days. None none of the current field reaches that level of performance and I think the danger that I've seen coming at the at the Democratic Party for a long time. Now is a lot of them. I'm still believe that this is going to be a referendum about policy. Selections a referendum as all presidents relations are about trump. They are all referendum. All the referendum referendum thought in this election is going to be trump or not trump ex future or wife future. If you want is trump's kicking you in the face until all eternity well well then re elect Donald Trump. If you want to argue about policy your re-electing Donald Trump it's you've got trump hands them right now the opportunity to go after him as a man who is corrupt corrupt who was ineffective and who was who has led this country into a place where the reputation of our president as as as an extortionist and a mercenary when our president tosses tosses out a reference to a civil war right. I think that that is again. This is a way to make a referendum on this man what kind the president in this country other than the unless he's Got Jefferson Davis fantasies wants to go out and have their reputation. Be You know re tweeting and praising somebody nobody who who's threatening a civil war if he doesn't get to operate above the law if he doesn't get to be unaccountable in every way and that this is the kind of thing that trumpism has normalized in our country and it's a great danger. Brian Jeff Flake Consensus Hall of fame furrowed Brow Hall of fame member Concern Concern Face Hall of fame member says to his fellow Republicans is there still time to save your souls others remember flake like as the guy who saved cavanaugh right before skipping town not the best guy to make that argument look I would prefer and there it will be a tremendous first-mover advantage for some seated member of the US Senate right now to make that point and to recognize that Donald Trump will drag every single one of them under and they will drown and die politically if they don't start breaking away. This is the problem that nine hundred seventy three and seventy four caught us in nineteen seventy-three. The Republicans were lockstep on Nixon. If you go back it was all it's a media conspiracy against the president. It's liberal elites against the president well in one thousand nine hundred eighty four the voters of the United States decided that fifty four forty nine Republicans needed to go home forever and that eight members of the Republican Senate needed to go the home forever. This is a political consequence of a corrupt president who abuses power right now donald trump and the thing about Nixon Nixon was not about money. Nixon was not about Personal Game Nixon was in the game because that was his character trump is venal trump wants political power so he can continue can you to enrich himself and his family and this is a category above even Richard Nixon and that takes a lot of doing Rick Wilson a thank you so much this survey serves a pleasure to have you on our
The Old Scourge of Anti-Semitism Rises Anew in Europe, According to the NYT
"All this. I mean, the New York Times just a beautiful example of how this sort of centrist coalition in Europe has missed everything is they've an article today called the old scorch of anti-semitism rises new in Europe. Their take is that it is all basically due to Benjamin Netanyahu and the far right in Europe. That is their take. That's just not true. But that is their take that basically, if we have huge levels of, of radical Muslim immigration from Libya, and Syria and Turkey, and those people come into Europe and a lot of them are anti semitic that we should ignore, but we need to focus in on Benjamin Netanyahu, somehow, the prime minister of Israel weird, how that is Jews getting attacking your blame the Jews when the yes, well done. New York Times, they suggest that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has not helped matters by finding common cause a nationalist leaders, like Hungarian Prime Minister, Viktor Orban's, President Trump, so long as they do not support a Palestinian state, he's the prime minister of a state. I'm confused. Is it now his job, prime minister Netanyahu, not to defend the priorities of the state of Israel. And now the New York Times is actually suggesting that attacks on Jews are justified because you don't like Benjamin Netanyahu. It's pretty amazing. He says the New York Times as far right and far left. Politicians have often learned to project themselves, as defender of Jews throwing on blatantly anti semitic tropes, as Mr Orban has done in Hungary among the Muslims of Europe and among some leftist resentment of Israel often crosses into hostility to all Jews. Oh, really among some leftist weird. There's not a single mention of Jeremy Corbyn anywhere in this article not to mention Bill Maher not eventually of the Democratic Party, the covered furrow hunt, Amar Michael Oren is the former foreign minister for the state of Israel. He says all the hypocrisy that fits the New York Times editorial on rising. Anti-semitism sites Netanyahu has a source, but omits Omar leave and incredibly the New York Times, and it's not see cartoon and endless articles, vilifying, the one Jewish state and supporters laughable, if not so tragic. Well, that is certainly correct. That is certainly right? It's amazing. I mean it's gotten so bad. In Germany, the German one, the German ministers have warned Jews not slurring in Europe. I, I have a lot of friends who've lived in Europe. They say the same thing when I was in France, with my wife a few years back, there's certain areas of Paris, where I'd put on a baseball cap rather than wearing my yarmulke. It's the, the fact that the that the folks who are supposed intelligentsia are suggesting that only one type of anti-semitism matters the type that they hate because it comes from people that they disliked
