"gate texas" Discussed on Impact Theory with Tom Bilyeu

"Man have you been. I've been great busy with really you a little bit. How often do you go back and forth. Coast to coast every weekend from september through basically february until super bowl. Every time i get an a plane. And i have to fly like two and a half hours in a thirty minutes to lay them all. I think straight hannah's doing this literally every weekend. That's what is good for me because to be honest with you the most quiet peaceful six hours coming this way of my week right so if i if i wanted to be on the phone if i want to do email if i want to do that i can't but if you to take a nap which is mostly what i do then i can do that. But that's why don't complain too because my father worked really hard and if by biggest complaint is being on an airplane and sleepy right then. I got a problem. If i'm complaining about that so i i keep everything in check by thinking back to how hard in how realistic life is. In how you know. I've been very fortunate. I don't take it for granted. You're super thoughtful. You really think about shit. Like pretty deeply into go into some depth about like The neurochemical cascades and how to manipulate them and life philosophies and very specifically like not just because you've got this concept from your data. I believe of if it's when which okay most people leave it at the platitude. You went a lot deeper than that. What does like walk us through that philosophy. How do you bridge the gap from if to win. I think i actually got that from my dad without even knowing. I don't even know if he knew what he was doing. Yeah i think it it is. He's just a hard driving person. He grew up with nothing in the back with of texas and gate texas. I don't even know if the town exists anymore. And he decided to leave and he went to the army and descend listed and he was a soldier for twelve years and he realized. I can't be it can't be officer. I can't really advance education. He got out of the army after twelve years had five kids and me on the way with the privy university and when it's all program called him old man you can't do this. You can't do that and he graduated magna cum laude of the rotc class. and so. i can't tell him what i can't do right. Because he's been a lot tougher situation. He's done it and i just remember the kid be into working out and doing all those things with him because they started to work out when i was thirteen and a little chunky and my brothers called me bob which is of course. You read the book bob which meant booty on back and they say you can grab your wallet over your shoulder. You'll have to reach behind you. It hurt me man. i'm thirteen years old crushed. I'm the youngest of six in the in. The youngest four boys. And i bought the jane fonda workout book started doing the the leg lifts in the book kicks and my dad saw that and he said hey we can go to the gym and he read muscle and fitness magazines and all these these workout magazines and he right out programs and we go to the gym. You had to read. How many reps and how much weight it. He kept meticulous log of things. And i always want to be there. The he could tell and i don't know what it was when you tell it. Thirteen fourteen fifteen year old kid that we did it until i went off to college was hanging there to pay off one day. Now he's telling this to me. And i'm living in germany right like i'm in the states and i played football next year. You're to have a great football season and then you can get a scholarship. It was hanging their son. It'll pay off one day. And years later he woke up and said hey. I think you're good enough to play football. Think you'd get a football scholarship germany. That's what's weird. It's not like you're playing every day and you know really around. I watch you but i didn't play really know all the nuances or any of the techniques or anything about the game and he just said hey you can do it. You're going to go to houston. You're going to stay with your uncle. You're going to get a football scholarship. And being i guess naive i said okay. Nobody be quiet on the plane. I go see my uncle. David michael for five months play one year. Football high school at westbury high school in houston got one scholarship to texas southern university and didn't care where it was. I miss it with accomplished. And i went back to germany that december i graduated high school over there and my dad never told me if he'd never doubted me said you're going to do this. You can do that from a kid until we won the super bowl until you know all these things that are happening now. He's never doubted me. And i don't know if it was by design. I don't know if you sent me the houston because he just was too cheap to pay for college. It worked out in my mentality. I have adopted that with for myself with my my kids. It's if you really want something bad enough. It's not going to be easy in. You can see where you want to go but there are so many things you're gonna have to go through to get there but truly if you focus and know where you want to end up you'll be. There may not be at that time you want. It's just now kind of immediate for most people but you'll eventually get your time to that. It's such a powerful belief and you talk a lot about that in the book. And and so i- judge books in a very critical fashion. Which is either the information is usable. Or it's not and then if it's usable. If i do it will it work or not Your book is both useable meaning. There's clear very action oriented steps. It's not just like an autobiography. It's like hey do this. And this is what i did. If people do what you say in the book it will actually work like. It's really incredible advice and it has fantastic backing in your understanding of the brain and all of that. It's you make decisions this ship. The you you make choices in your life you program your mind either. Be happier not as a choice that you make is not something that somebody else makes for. You is not not even your situation no matter what the situation you truly do. Make the choice to be happy that situation or not and we also have the ability to change a situation that we're not happy with talk a little bit about that because if anybody that doesn't know the legendary beef that you had with the final coach at the giants such a powerful what i'm talking about specifically is is that you switched right so you come in hot heads you then in the end. You said that if you were going to go back. He's the only one that you'd go back play. yeah. I absolutely hated tom. Coughlin and Not long ago that the giants monday night game to deduct payment to the ring of honor which was like amazing for me because this is a guy by first meeting with him. And i'd been in the nfl for eleven twelve years. My first meeting with the guy. And i felt as if he was dismissive..

"Record you're saying I am totally off base. If I say Bill Belichick got exposed this season. What do you mean, exposed exposed? He didn't have Tom Brady. He's he's He's not an Abbott must think he's an average coach. But he is not a great coach without Tom Brady. I'm sorry. I know he was a great D coordinator with the Giants. But that was more Parcells and Belichick because Parcells, one of New England, he won with the Jets, he won with the Cowboys bill. Wait a minute. Bill Parcells had the exact same run in New England that Bill Belichick had in Cleveland. And all you did was dead. A great Bella Jack. Because he didn't go. We don't go to the playoffs four years in a row in Cleveland, it took parcels years to build it. He got him. The one Super Bowl left out the back door. It's incredibly comparable in the way they built the organizations and rose up yet against Bella check. It's bad, but for parts cells, it's good in everyone to a franchise were six of the seasons Quest. Five they were losing seasons. Who would wait? What Bela Chick had five losing seasons out of the six campaigns he was in Cleveland. I've got a six losing seasons. That's not a great coach. I'm sorry. Yeah, He's so overrated. I guess. I mean, he was exposed this year. I don't He was exposed. So hold on, Shep. When you say exposed you mean he's done? Didn't say he's done. Whoa, Shep! Shep, If you're saying someone is exposed, then you're intimating. They are a fraud because someone else was doing the work for them. Which is what you have intimated. So therefore this guy is washed up. Or did he not get exposed and have a bad year when you say you got exposed? You're basically pulling back the curtain and saying it was a sham. So, what you're saying is Bill Bella check is a sham because he didn't have Tom Brady this year and on, Lee won seven games. It didn't cave in. By the way. What happened in Indianapolis the year Peyton Manning left. I think they went toe one win right? Now that to me is a sham. So what you're saying is if I use your verb E Ege is that Parcells is are the bell check is not only fraudulent. He's been exposed to the point to where he'll never come back. Can't wait to you know how I'm gonna hold you guys up. I know you got to get to break rest. I can't wait to come back with information I just but again when you say it's a sham. You're saying he's a fraud? I'm saying in terms of people holding him on the reverence in the mountain top of being a genius. He is not that no. 855 to 1 to four. CBS were way late.

"Tens of thousands and that's a conservative estimate. Jessica brooders our guest on travel with rick steves. She's the author of nomad land surviving america in the twenty first century. Not long after book released. Twenty seventeen jessica drove to our studio. Gmc kemperman she fixed up and called. Bam haven for website. Is jessica bruder dot com. That spell b are u. d. Jessica how did you get into this and tell us about how you learned about this once. You were inspired to go out and write this book. I'm a journalist. I do a lot of reading and back in. Oh gosh okasha was two thousand and eleven. There was a really scrappy paper. The allentown morning call the came out with a report about temperatures rising to one hundred and ten degrees in an amazon warehouse and instead of putting a c they had ambulances outside to pick up people when the dropped and a year later was reading more about warehouse work and there were one paragraph two paragraphs tops article where somebody said. Hey i'm in the amazon warehouse. Because i'm here with a special program for our ears and i can't afford to retire and the story moved on but i i was like wait a minute. What is that all about. So i learned more about the program started doing a ton of research and found out that this program amazon runs called. Kemper force was just a small part of a much larger ecosystem thousands of employers coast to coast and up into canada hiring this incredibly mobile population in an environment where the mainstream workplace. These folks might face a lot of ageism and suddenly here is a network of employers. That's welcoming older folks with open arms. So let's talk about that a little bit because If you are an employer and you hire a temp worker. There are some advantages. They don't to organize unit dealing with unions. don't have a lot of Perks and benefits you give them. Certainly no healthcare and it can be seen as an employer is a very easy way to fill the the spikes in demand of labor in your work economically amazon. Might have a huge demand for labor at christmas time and less elsewhere so all these different will realize hey. This is the time to go to amazon now. And then in the summer it might be agricultural work or something like this. Give me the description of this would. Amazon would call camper force sure but also it's worth noting that this is just a tiny part of the fact that so much of our workforce is going towards independent contractors right now and why is that because it's so much more beneficial for the employers and employers market to not have to provide benefits of any kind and to have out will employees where you really don't need any resent to them. It's just the ultimate and flexible workforce at will employees. What does that mean exactly at will means you can be terminated without cause so many of these were camping jobs. The folks are working at well. They are told you will probably get x. Amount of hours a week and often they travel great distances to reach the job and if the employer decides that they're no longer needed or they just feel like cutting them. There's no obligation to deliver on the work. So what are some examples of sources of employment for itinerant Labor's there is the amazon camper force. That is something that exists in the four months leading up to christmas where people do pick and pack on ten hour shifts in the warehouses. Make sure you've got good sneakers. You could be walking fifteen miles a day or more on concrete with not so nice on an aging body. Now would this be kind of a nine to five shift or do they do it at different times of day. I went undercover into the overnight shift which turned people into what they referred to as. Emma zombies amazon. I'm midnight dam or something. Oh gosh yeah result. Through the night it was all through the night so just one ship comes and other shift goes. Yeah absolutely the worst. Not ever shutdown big big source of temporary. What are some other examples. There is the annual sugarbeet harvest up in the red river valley. People work on ground crew. You're shoveling sugar. Beets out in the cold on a twelve hour shift at. That's pretty intense as well. There are people guarding the gates. Texas oilfields there are people doing campground hosting which is a really interesting one because it looked very quaint and the jobs are often advertise something. That kind of feels like summer camp like. Hey you're getting paid to go camping but in this kind of camping. You're cleaning toilets three times a day. You're shoveling out fire pits. You're dealing with rowdy campers and you're only allowed to invoice for a limited amount of work hours when in truth you're on site For many of these people twenty four seven because your living there so if somebody wants to buy firewood from you at two in the morning and they're banging on the side of your rig. Good luck telling them now. How would somebody who's looking for. Workers spread their news. And how would somebody who's looking for work network and know what's out there. Are there magazines or their websites. And how connect yeah. There's a website called workers on wheels. There's another site called work camper news and they solicit advertisements from tons and tons and tons of employers. There's also just a huge word of mouth network. People who are work camping get together on facebook and in all sorts of online digest. The man who ties the christmas tree abide the roof of your car. The woman who cleans the toilets at the campground near stayed in they might be among the thousands of work campers. Justice bruder got to know. She researched the lives of americans who live in. Rv's and campers by joining them in her own converted camper van jessica's book nomad land made the new york times list of one hundred notable books. Twenty seventeen it's now been adapted into a movie starring frances mcdormand david straigthen and a number of actual people jessica met on the road. The film won the top prize at this year's venison toronto film festivals. No madelynn is scheduled for general release on december fourth. Our number eight seven seven three three three seven four to five and then he's calling from sandwich in massachusetts. How did people view you. Or how does society view this like a vagabond. Just normal people using a campfire traveling. Well it's really funny. You use that word. Because i just remember when i met one of the women i interviewed for the book. She said you're gonna make us out to be a bunch of homeless vagabonds. So that concern of stigmas definitely there particularly with the ongoing criminal ization of homelessness all over the country where people are being told. They can't sleep in their vehicles in cities all over the place. So i think it really depends on what strata the community belonged to. And what regular. And i know a woman who lives in a van and was speaking to a bunch of folks in sparkly new. Rv's around a campfire and when they asked her what kind of do you live in. And she said a van. They actually left their own camp fire. There is stigma and there is prejudice out there. And i think depending on how old your rig is and what you're doing with it it can be a real challenge. Well thank you for your answer. Thank you for your call. Nancy ideas calling from los angeles a deer. Thanks for your call lindley any time any of these people might have considered becoming experts in moving to other countries. I'm sure they might not have the means to get to the other countries but you know exco has a lot of experts and i know cuenca doors really high on the list in other words a deer if you have a humble retirement here. That doesn't quite pay the bills. You could move south of the border and live more comfortably.

Gate Texas chainsaw massacre in nineteen seventy four toby cooper, the director brought to life leather face. He were mass made of human skin, and and his weapon of choice was a chainsaw. All the enough, the idea for Texas. chainsaw massacre was sparked when Cooper was Christmas shopping. Annoyed with the amount of people in the stores as he walked by a row of hanging chainsaws, just for a split second, he thought. A chainsaw would be a really good way to make room in the aisles. Honestly I've thought the same thing. Christmas, shopping is. Horrible it is awful. It's awful also Ed Geene was said to inspire leather face I. Mean I think Ed Geene Kevin spout inspired a lot of horror especially. SLASHER villains probably. Hannibal Lecter Probably. Leather face probably Michael Maya he'd probably all rafters Martha Stewart. The big quilters of our time every quilter been inspired by at Game Pinterest. The hills have eyes the nineteen seventy seven version. Wes Craven was inspired by Sony Bean who was the head of a Scottish clan that was said to murder and eat their victims in the Middle Ages. You know who I'm talking about I. DO I do? It was supposed to be a family it kind of like ambush people on the road right? Yes, there are some like very traumatic scene in that movie I haven't seen the original. I've seen the remake. but the crew was traumatized by the terrifying. Reap scene in that movie and they also under. very, they're working under very excruciating temperatures, but they put their foot down after the rape scene, because wes craven wanted to have a baby. Murdered. By inbred cannibals in the movie she's crate and all threatened to walk if he put that scene in the movie all of them every single person threatened to actually proud of them for saying enough as is not me too I honestly. Don't like stuff like that horror movies I. Love Horror. I'm more of a psychological horror fan than like a slasher thrasher blood gore more. You know and yeah I think that a baby that's. His terrible pushing it. That's like beyond like the boundaries. Like to witness violent. If serves a story line, and it furthers the story then then I'm good with it, but just. Violence for the sake of violence with no real necessity for I don't like that I. Just like it's laziness. It's like low hanging horror fruit. Is and I feel like. I don't really like shock value. You know what I mean. It's like overrated, scary, psychological scary movie that makes you think about it for days days after yeah so I'm glad the crew put their foot down me. Do and I'm an West Craven? Let it go. Did on you, so that worked out for everybody. Paranormal activity two, thousand and nine. So paranormal activity was about a demon terrorizing a young couple in their home. Filmed in a few weeks with no script by film students, most of the dialogue was improvised, but this movie will go down in history as one of the best. People walked out of theaters. They were so scared. Steven Spielberg who fun fact. His company actually purchased the rights to this movie He was so intrigued by the movie he rented. It took it home to watch it and during. The time that he was watching it his. It's his door to the room that he was in locked itself. And he had to call Locksmith Vats to get himself out. He was so freaked out that he threw the DVD the rent, a DVD and a trash bag and returned it the next day as soon as he could be rid of it wow. That movie is so good because it's like the fact that they were low budget students instead of. Saying Oh shit, we're we're just a low budget. Whatever they took advantage of that and use the fact that it was supposed to be a home surveillance home surveillance diy set up to their advantage, and and it makes believable. Yes, say. Oh my gosh same thing with Blair, witch I don't even know if something like this could even happen now because I feel like it would be so hard to get it out there to people with so many big movie corporations. You know yeah, swallowing all the little guys up. Yeah, the you know. I did see that one did see that I didn't read the Wikipedia I did read the pedia on the sequel. They were good, but. Also involved children so I didn't want to watch I but I. Did Watch this one indicators? Mind you and it was very scary. You know what's the most scary thing to me in this movie is. I think it's deliberate. Then there was paranormal activity, or the demon was coming close to in contact with these people, there was a difference in sound It was like a fuller thicker sound I can explain it I'm not an expert like the room was filled with the sound instead of just a distant recording of a voice. Yes, it was almost like. Like, it was a total sense using all of your senses your. It was just it was like you could feel the sound. It was very scary. It was effect if affected me. I had nightmares for months. Thank you so much for golf paranormal activity. Scream nineteen ninety, six Kevin Williamson best known for creating Dawson's. Creek While those shift.

Well, thank you so much, Bob and carry and thank you to over other stem, talk listeners, help stem talk become such a great success. Okay. And now onto our interview with Matt Johnson. Stem stem taught stem talk. Hi, welcomed the stem talk. I'm your host on connect. And joining us today is Matt Johnson. Matt, welcome to stem talk. Thanks and also joining us is Ken Ford. Hello, Don and welcome met. So Matt you grew up in Long Island, New York and have an unusual family sukey tells a little bit about the unique siblings situation in your family. Sure, I have six siblings, which is little bit larger than average family. But what makes them unique is how we got all those siblings. I have two older brothers. They came about through the doctoral way. But when I was seven my parents adopted younger sister from Indonesia and a few years later, they adopted an older sister from Korea, and then a few years after that they adopted a brother from Vietnam. So we have many United Nations in my house and say call and you did your undergraduate work in aerospace engineering at the university of Notre Dame in Indiana. So what led you from New York to Indiana? And why did you choose aerospace engineering? So not name was an easy choice by oldest brother had ended up going to Notre Dame. And then my middle brother followed him. And so I had spent a lot of time visiting both of those and fell in love with the school. So Notre Dame was pretty easy for me to select as far as engineering I've always liked science and math. And I knew I wanted to go into engineering to go to Notre Dame out on a Razzi scholarship. And I knew I wanted to fly for the navy so aerospace made a lot of sense. So after Notre Dame as you mentioned, do you? Join the navy and you're a flyer in the navy. Can you elaborate a little bit on that? Yeah. Went into the navy and selected helicopters ended up flying the s h sixty Bravo out of San Diego for my see duty S H E Bravo's the Seahawk. It's the navy equivalent of the Blackhawks that people are probably familiar with its mission is anti sub any surface surveillance. Just like the commercials say, you know, when you join the navy get to see the world. So the navy drag me around to bunch of places like the Persian Gulf in south East Asia. I gotta see quite a bit of things and did about ten years of active duty in ten years of. Serves it took me from San Diego to Corpus Christi, Texas where I ended up being a flight instructor flying fixed wing again for about fourteen years. He ended up at Corpus Christi as you mentioned. And you actually ended up at Texas. Now, I'm getting a master's degree in computer science. How did that happen? So the navy has a strange way about it. And that it likes to broaden its officers, and what it is for pilots is it forces them out of the cockpit, which is strange to me. It's been a lot of time training flying. And then they want you to leave that. And so when I was looking at my short duty after my duty, I decided that I was going to pursue another career after the navy an void going back out to sea not flying. So fortunately in Corpus Christi. There's a branch of Texas. Am right out? The back gate, Texas, am Corpus Christi. And I was able to pursue my master's degree while I was doing my active duty as a flight instructor and went back to school one thing I learned unto my endure my undergraduate as that, although I like engineering abetter computer scientist, I enjoyed aerospace engineering, but everything we did. Involved computer programming and turns out that I had an act for that. So why went back for my masters? It was a natural switch to to start focusing on computer science directly. And that's what I did Samat. When did you transition out the navy, and then what brought you to himse in Pensacola? So when I went to Corpus Christi Neo is on a trajectory to leave the navy, and I want to get into a technology fields specifically in robotics. Artificial intelligence, I destined time to leave the navy was December of two thousand and one. So unfortunately, nine eleven happened right before that which was pretty tragic time and that did did a number on the job market. So I was unemployed for a while after about three to four months of looking for a job. My wife suggested we go on vacation. I didn't think that was the thing you did when you had employed, but my wife has a long history of being right? So I decided to follow her advice and she's from Pensacola, so he came down visited her family and spent some time on the beach, and on the beach, my kids at the time were one in three were playing with some kids next door those. Parents asked if they could borrow a diaper or something and we ended up chatting, and they were asking what I do a settlement unemployed. They asked what had liked to do. And I said robotics artificial intelligence, and they said, oh, you should look at this place called H M C, which I had never heard of time and that up giving him a resume. He ended up foreing it onto Ken Ford. And then I got a call from Ken shortly after that to come on down and interview, see, your wife is a very wise woman. After a fuse working at agencies started working on a PHD through Delft university in the Netherlands. So how did that come about? So

"But it looks like it's been good for Republicans. I think that the antics on the left have really backfired maybe they're helping Cory Booker in his presidential race. But they're certainly not helping the Democrats in congress. That is. Yeah. That that is interesting. So what does that where are these polls from? Swing state. So it's okay. North dakota. Indiana, West Virginia, Tennessee, those sort of the swing states in the Senate election. So yeah, go ahead. Tommy, one of the most important elections. And certainly one of the most sexy elections is for the US Senate seat in Texas between incumbent Ted Cruz and his challenger better. O'rourke? What are you seeing in the polls on that? And how do you think that's going to turn out the first week of November? Well, I I haven't seen a recent poll in the last two weeks or so to sort of gauge the the cabinet effect there. But certainly it's closer than anybody expected. You you've got to admit that out of the gate, Texas is a is a very red state has changing demographics and their four hundred thousand new voters in Texas this year, that's an awful lot. And I think that's why the racist closer than expected. But it looks like it's you know, it's an all out fight to the end better work is popular and gaining steam. And and and Ted Cruz has the benefit of a really large Republican base in Texas, and we'll see which one of those effects wins out. I kind of think that it will go the way up. The rest of the nation. If it's a big Blue Wave. Ted Cruz could could be could be could win squeaker or he could lose. If it's not a Blue Wave, which it looks like that that prediction is fading out. But I think Ted Cruz we'll come back to the Senate, and he'll be just fine. So the same things that affect the rest of the country the economy what's happening with cavenaugh, the Trump agenda all of those things also affect the race in Texas. And so we'll just see if if this Blue Wave is real or or imaginary, and I went, and I I tend to think the Blue Wave is if it wasn't imaginary to begin with it, certainly fading and that also applies to the house, right? Yeah. That's absolutely, right. There are abundant house races that are closer than partisan metrics of the district would would lend themselves to Democrats are outperforming registered Democrats in those districts, but if voter enthusiasm on the left fades and voter enthusiasm on the right goes up. Then I think. Then I think the Republicans will maintain the majority in the house. I gotta say, I aren't we all a little bit distrustful of polls at this point. Didn't we all get tricked in two thousand sixteen? Anybody who's who thinks they know the result of this election in advance based on polls. I just don't think is is doing very much thinking. The polls were dead wrong in two thousand sixteen they underestimated the Trump voter, I don't know how you could say that they had definitively six them by two thousand eighteen. Yeah. It is. It's been interesting certainly even just here in Massachusetts. And this really doesn't go to the Blue Wave or anything like that. At all. I don't think I think it's sort of a different. Many revolution going on. But I mean, just watching Kaplon, oh, and some of the other very. Longtime Democrats who are actually very liberal getting bounced was was quite something here in Massachusetts. So it's it's been a very fun election for somebody who just likes watching elections and likes being surprised by elections because. It's E where people have sudden voters have decided that they are not gonna take it anymore, or they want big changes has just been a very interesting. Been an interesting thing to watch I agree. And I think this year is even more interesting when you look at the Democratic Party, they lost the presidential in two thousand sixteen they're doing some soul-searching some in the party thinks that the way to go is. Very progressive, socialist policy agenda. All Bernie Sanders. Let's talk about Medicare for all. Let's talk about socialized healthcare. That's the way to go others. I'm have determined. You know, we're going to play more identity politics. We're gonna play up race issues and play up gender issues and identity. Politics is going to be the way to go. Those are two very different schools of thought they're playing out a democrat primaries. And in a lot of ways it's sort of a test case for how the twenty twenty democrat primary is going to go is it going to be somebody like Bernie Sanders who thinks that the socialist policy agenda is the way to go. Or is it going to be somebody like Hillary Clinton was in two thousand sixteen that played identity politics? We'll find out actor twenty eighteen how that bodes for twenty twenty. It's it's very interesting. What to ask you because you know, everything else that has been going on has has really taken a back seat. But what what exactly did congress vote on when it came to some other tax Bill last week. Democrats are trying to make a thing of it. I couldn't quite figure out what's going on. I wasn't paying any attention because I was just watching the hearings. And then I was watching senators can you give us a sense of what that was about. Sure. So we did the tax cuts in December of last year that that Trump tax cuts those expire in twenty twenty five. And so if your business if you're an individual trying to make your plans, your tax Bill is gonna go up dramatically in twenty twenty five. So those votes were about making the tax cuts permanent. In other words, they're not going to expire one of the things that the Democrats complained about on the tax cuts. No Democrats voted for them one of the things that they complained about was that they expire in twenty twenty five that was a big talking point. So they put this Bill these it was a series of three bills tax reform two point. Oh, they put those Ford as a way to say. Let's make them permanent. I think from a policy standpoint. That makes all the sense in the world. You can't have an uncertain tax picture businesses to be making investments based on. They don't know what their tax liability is going to be in in six or seven years. And then the other thing is I don't I don't necessarily love the pattern that congress has on with tax reform every twenty five or thirty years. I think they should be taking a look at the tax code every year twice a year. Let's keep making it better. Let's keep putting the tax code on the dalit and let people decide rather than you know, every twenty five or thirty years once the tax code is just too difficult to deal with deciding to reform it, I think if congress would stay focused on that. That would be a good thing politically now, it's not as sexy or a salient as the cabinet on nomination. And so you're right. It didn't get as much attention. So the other question I have for you is this because one of the arguments that Democrats had about the original tax cuts. Whereas they were not continued for the people the regular people, and frankly, Tommy Bainian, I'm probably supposed to care about the businesses and what they. Need in terms of stability. But you know, I want my taxes to continue to be down. I don't want them to go up. So why are they voting on and carrying about these businesses, and they're not securing for me? Okay. So they're focusing. Okay. Good. Yeah. So so the individual tax cuts will be made permanent under these bills as well. Okay. I'm of course, they have to still pass the Senate, and that that's going to take place this year. But this goes for the individual tax cuts as well. But also businesses is you that's that's your right now. Do you understand that? I totally understand that argument, and I get it. I just you know, we hadn't touched on the individual. And I think certainly for normal people. That's I think I and so I'm curious about that mainly because it seemed like it was too hard to get a permanent. Cut. Voted on is that remember, I mean, that's why when Democrats were criticizing this Bill and saying, well, you know, as soon as wise as soon as twenty-five happens, it's gonna go right back up. The argument was well, you know, what this sort of thing happens often and wants twenty-five comes. Nobody's gonna you know. People are going to take another vote. And if you're seen as a person who is voting against a tax cut keeping tax cut. That's going to play out later on in votes. What's the change? What's happened that made them think that this would be permanent? Well, it's not a policy difference. Republicans always wanted it to be permanent. What they were able to get done under the special rules under the reconciliation process where you only have to have fifty vote margin in all they could do to squeeze that through that special process was a seven year tax cut. If they wanted a permanent one, it wasn't going to qualify for reconciliation, and you would have to get sixty votes. So the thought is to go back and in regular order was sixty votes in the Senate try to make it permanent. I see. Okay. Good stuff. Thank you so much, and they probably got into the weeds a little bit more than most people who follow. But I remember that being sort of an interesting aspect of the original tax Bill. And of course, as we were watching this cavenaugh stuff go on. I started seeing on my Twitter feed some desktop about these tax cuts in what was going on. So want to want to follow up? Tommy. Love having you on. Thanks so much for joining us. You bet talk your next week have a great show. All right. Why don't we had a quick break? This. Our morning meeting is brought to you by Rockland.

"Nomination. Particularly attempt to invoke cloture another time. So. What's the what's the expectation for that? Then I mean is there going to be yet again? Clearly, this is a huge grandstanding opportunity. Correct. Yeah. I think that's right. This is really a question of the three senators on the Republican side that are swing votes if they're not comfortable tomorrow at one then the vote will be whenever they are comfortable, if if if they indicate to the majority leader, you know, we haven't had enough time to review the FBI documents or whatever it is. Then then they can delay the vote as long as they are saying we could get comfortable by tomorrow or the next day. Mitch McConnell has been promising every day this week on the Senate floor that we will vote on cavenaugh. But the truth is the swing vote told a lot of power. If they needed other day to get to. Yes, I think they'll get another day. But I think they're already there. I think there's nothing new in this FBI report. I think that they will they will submit to the vote tomorrow at one they'll vote. Yes. And cavenaugh will be on the court by Monday morning. That's what I think. Tommy, do you think that the president hurt? The cause of getting this nomination done by doing what he did the other night Mississippi. Somewhat mocking professor Ford. Do you think that that could flip any of the votes, especially Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski to vote? No on Cavanaugh. I really don't. They they may be they may not like it. But they really I think for political reasons can't hang their vote on one thing. The president said keep in mind, everybody is paying attention to this. This is causing massive shifts in the polls. The American people are tuned into this. So whatever reason senators give for their yes. Or no votes is going to be highly scrutinized. I just don't think you know. I didn't like what the president said Thursday night. Tuesday night is is a good enough reason for them to vote. No, I think that they're going to eventually decide this is a qualified candidate. These allegations against him are uncorroborated. I'm gonna vote. Yes. All right. So so what do you see in terms of the impact on midterms? I think it's huge. And by the way, it's big on both sides, but midterm elections are are not about appealing to the independence. They're not about appealing to moderates in the middle midterm elections are about turning out your base, and to do that you've got to have excitement you've got to have people that care you've gotta have passions. It's called voter enthusiasm and Republicans have seen a huge boost in voter enthusiasm. Because people are genuinely mad about how this process has gone. From the polls that we have seen come back in the last week or so Democrats up until this point in the election cycle had been dominating in that voter enthusiasm metric. Lead that they had almost completely evaporated over the last two weeks. So I think it's very interesting. If you look at the particular Senate racist. In swing states. Republicans have also gained a huge advantage and just in terms of the general ballot test who are you gonna vote for? So so far. You know, the media they've turned it the Brett bump or the cabin all effect. But it looks like it's been good for Republicans. I think that the antics on the left have really backfired. Maybe they're helping Cory Booker in his presidential race. But they're certainly not helping but Democrats in congress. That is. Yeah. That that is interesting. So what does that where are these polls from? Curiosity. Swing state. So it's okay. Gotcha. Worry North Dakota. Indiana. Yep. West Virginia, Tennessee, those sort of the swing states in the Senate election. So yeah, go ahead. Tommy, one of the most important elections. And certainly one of the most sexy elections is for the US Senate seat in Texas between incumbent Ted Cruz and his challenger better. O'rourke? What are you seeing in the polls on that? And how do you think that's gonna turn out the first week of November? Well, I I haven't seen a recent poll in the last two weeks or so to sort of gauge the cabinet effect there.
