IBM: Why Eyes are Fixed on Big Blue
"With big blue. However, IBM is spinning off its IT infrastructure division into a new publicly traded company that that is the legacy part of IBM's business. Or shares of IBM up about seven percent. So that's helping to boost the Dow and. Arvind Krishna who took over as CEO of IBM back in April. not, really wasting anytime setting the direction for IBM's future. No, no it a little bit a little bit Sati, Nadal ask if you if you will. In anything that makes a lot of sense I mean it was interesting to note the pre-market enthusiasm IBM world pretty quickly in the market opened. Bu-. Whenever you can get the word spinoff and unlock value and cloud in the same release you've got to feel pretty good about that especially if you're IBM. So I. Think this move is really this is this is the final move in trying to turn a page for this company. In IBM is really geared toward trying to become identified as a cloud company period in. So that's what this ultimately is. It spits off spins off a little bit of a legacy part of the business. It gives them the chance to really focus on where they feel like the puck is going so to speak. Doesn't make me want to own IBM more now. No I don't think so I mean I probably honestly if I were shareholder. Maybe look at it as a nice time to cut bait and you know pull the old George Costanza. Leave on a high note But this really does go all the way back to the nineteen ninety s when former management identified the need to pivot away from. The reliance on hardware sales and really focus more on software and services. and. So what this will do ibm the new IBM will focus on it's it's open a hybrid cloud platform which. Represents a massive massive opportunity I mean that's one trillion dollar opportunity which. I listen I. Mean we talk about large growing market opportunities all the time, and that's obviously a big. So you can't you can't neglect. Considering that and The spinoff company the yet to be named company. I don't know that I. Feel. So strongly about one that's focused more on managing and modernizing client owned infrastructures, I mean it's a big market opportunity but is it just legacy IBM businesses never really been compelling to begin with?

"4:30 p.m. Usually, um, when you do you return, you've gotta include George Costanza. Costanza. Which one the one that I had before. Oh, yeah. Yeah, I probably will. I mean, my my creative juices are flowing right now. So a lot of this stuff I'm a rehash and just have to alter them slightly, totally has Stands. You know, I'm bringing kiss stands back. Don't worry. I also Festivus if you was Hey, listen, um Let me ask you a silly question. Joel Embiid, Huh? Um He played the other day for a few minutes. Would you tell me with that list injury on the ankle injury accepted center. In the play offs starting on Monday. Why would he play at all? Steve I when he went, you know when he left the game with that hand injury. How did X Ray the AA couple nights back? I thought for certain he wouldn't have played last night. And then when I saw him when I found we found about 15 minutes before that he was going to play. I was surprised, but then I said, Well, Maybe they'll play him 1/4 just to kind of get the starters some time together. And then he played 23 minutes. I think that is its absurd and I know that's how you feel, Steve. I do not understand why Brett Brown. In the final game before the playoffs begin. Have the starters play that many minutes together. I think it makes no sense whatsoever. That's what the game's before that we're supposed to be, and he let him sit extra games, and then they're putting him in a game like this, which is absolutely meaningless. Yeah, I did it. This is one of the many reasons that Brett Brown will ultimately be going at season's end. You think so I'll G m or not, not the GM, The head coach will most definitely will be out and I think he'll be happy that he's out. You know, I don't have the records in front of my face, but every time in the list or for 56 years, six years play Boston in the playoffs. Bread brackets. Outcoached? Yes, Brad Brad Stevens, the head coach of the Boston Celtics. Yeah, He's a very good tactician. Er, especially in in game coaching. You is so irreplaceable. I mean, that's a whole another level to be able to adjust. That quickly on the fly, and Brad Stevens has had to your point the number of Brett Brown in the past. So as a member of the media, do you see? Six years, beating Boston. No, John. No, I do not Steve. I don't see in beating Boston. Ah, you know, I'm going to get more into it shortly. But to answer your question, I Without Ben Simmons. For all that he lacks. Offensively, his defense is irreplaceable. And the matchups are going to be a nightmare for the Philadelphia 76 years because the boss Celtics, they'll have matchup they have Boston is going to dominate the matchups offensively because the Sixers defensively will not be able to match that. And I think, indeed, Ah, and at times Alec Burkes will be Very instrumental. Tobias Harris is is a big key to this because I need him to actually be something he hasn't been. Ah, but as my feelings right now is the Sixers will lose in six. You're not looking for a sweep. I don't think I'd be swept, but I don't see them winning the Siri's..

"We are to quote George Costanza my name is Nigel let's Jason hammer Donald trump they talk about vaccines he is named the team to develop a coronavirus vaccine at warp speed it's actually called operation warp speed the names of this he's got this team this operation warp speed team in this value waiting fourteen different vaccine candidates right now mentioned towards the hopefully by the end of the year maybe even sooner I'm not sure how possible a vaccine before the end of the year is bye yeah it's like I read different things one one thing one article say all these guys that his mind is on the way to talk about and then the other at the like another doctor all readers like yeah it's possible I've seen studies so vaccine baby back see if the movie Spaceballs talking in a sense after operation warp speed comes operation ludicrous speed well it's funny because this is this is the exact later on after he made that speech today about the vaccines you signed the executive order effectively creating another branch of the military the space force so like it the space force flag was unveiled in the oval office earlier this afternoon it's actually pretty cool Star Wars themes today here with the trump administration and knowing how Donald Trump likes alliteration he likes things to sound good how soon until you put Maxine waters on the vaccine to vaccine waters will become available vaccine all vaccine water well this is good the one thing that I took out of today all joking aside is that it's going to be private industry that comes up with the vaccine right if you're waiting for the White House to have you know doctor found G. in a back room and doctor Burks in another room looking into a telescope yeah a microscope that's not going to happen it's going to be major companies that are working on this and what I like is that he's basically said the race is on so if your company wants to be known as the national hero and gets the vaccine out there gets all the money that goes along with it your racing against all these other people and we've cut the red tape out to make it happen and I that I mean that's one of the things made me feel better when this thing first got started to get together with the guys from target Walmart big pharma guys at the big pharma was evil all the sudden they're really there you talk about end all be all the big pharma guys all this of the superheroes are all there we did big pharma for a long time not all the heavy weights together it's like let's get going on this right now now all of a sudden everybody in America all right for so long they were the bad guys right now all your price gouging you're making everybody uncomfortable and now all of a sudden we're bowing down and buy your lunches for big pharma norm macdonald had a great stand up bit about that a couple weeks ago when they were still able to have standup comedy shows in Los Angeles yeah with the five big pharma's evil now well you want five hundred dollars a pill for the care no problem all day problem five hundred on I'm probably seems reasonable right now but closer to home here today marks the beginning of stage two for Marion County which means basically malls retail stores they can open up to fifty percent capacity a liquor stores there opened at fifty percent capacity the libraries can do curbside pickup which I don't even know if that helps them or not but again gatherings up to twenty five people that's good but that also goes for the churches because what mayor Hogsett said was that Marion County is going to be different than governor Holcomb St order because governor Holcomb said the state order said churches you're on your own you do you here in Marion County mayor Hogsett basically saying yeah you're not going to charge of this twenty six people in that building were shutting it down so I can you tell me I can go to Dick's sporting goods there eighty six street traders Boyton trying a new pair of shorts the dressing room but you can go get a hair cut that is strange county that is correct you can be in a Walmart with about told two hundred people because capacity in that joint as well over four hundred so even the fifty percent capacity in a Walmart you are in there with two hundred other people but you can't go to a church with twenty six actually I'd be shocked if you walk into a retail store and go into a dressing room I bet they have this closed off I don't know I haven't seen that would just kind of makes sense to me right now with all the stuff going on gate check out these clothes that don't try him on I will bet that be I'm I'm that that's the policy and some of these retail stores right now the Attorney General Curtis hill he's got a problem with mayor Hogsett and the fact that mayor hopes of getting involved in churches the girl's still got a lot of problems but he's a problem somebody else too he's got problems of his own he's got problems with mayor Hogsett Curtis hill says it's quote inappropriate and unlawful for city officials to impose special burdens on churches and other religious gatherings he released this through a statement he sent a letter to mayor Hogsett office asking him to reconsider his position now spokesperson for Hogg said told the Indy star that he hopes Curtis hill reconsiders his position so basically they're saying blank me blank you back and forth to each other he's I'm I'm looking at how hugs set responded here a spokesman for hogsheads office told the Indy star that the city hopes that the acting Attorney General and his staff will engage in dialogue with the health department the kind of back handed things we don't know if right we don't know yet I don't know if Curtis hill is the actual Attorney General right now because he got suspended right something is law license was suspended for a few days also goes back thirty days thirty days for the that this all going back a few years ago to this these inappropriate misconduct charges with the with hill a bard some other employees he was accused of playing grab **** with a bunch of people at the state house races so I want to ask yeah I wanna see that DO a has the same read on that I we hope the the acting Attorney General in the staff of the gauge and dialogue that's kind of like a just under in the back and it's swipe even though he might not be in charge right now Curtis hill at least of looking after some folks in Marion County because a lot of folks again power hungry with this and this takes us to the store in Westfield on Wednesday afternoon two people claiming to be excised from the state of Indiana showed up to this miniature golf course in Westfield told birdies birdies miniature golf and Jessica Lynch and her husband own this joint she did an interview with our news partners wish TV and she claimed that the excise police showed up because there was a complaint and they were rude and overbearing and demanded they shut everything down

How To Achieve Financial Freedom In 10 Years Or Less with Brad Gibb
"Ryan say what's up to fire nation and sheer so the interesting about yourselves. That most people don't know what is up fire nation. Hey this is Ryan Lee and his Brad and guys The thing that most people don't about us We are to financial strategist and so many people think that we have all these degrees and pedigree one of us does one of us doesn't so I'm actually a high school dropouts And Bradley give over here is I have more degrees than fingers on one hand so so the interesting thing is how the two of US combined with our perspectives around money and finance. What it all means to help empower people in their financial planning. Well I love it and fire nation as I alluded to in the intro. We're GONNA be talking about how you can achieve financial freedom and we're talking ten years or less. We're not talking by the time you know thirty years. Forty years have gone by. Of course you'll be five x ten x down the road by them. We're talking in this decade fire nation. It is something that's been a focus of mine. One of the reasons I moved to Porto Rico. Three and a half years ago that might come up a little further on this conversation. And these guys. They've been helping people they've been connected with some great entrepreneurs actually about to be going to funnel hacking lives look continuing to up. Their education surround themselves with the right people. Suspicious breakdown four fire nation at the top this episode what Financial Freedom Actually Means John. I love that question. I mean you know. There's so many misconceptions. I think a lot of people throw around the idea. The concept the phrase financial freedom but as we talk to people about a very few people actually understand what it means that the simple answer to that is when your cash flow from your expense from your assets exceed your expenses. That's the simple answer but as you dive into it a little bit deeper you know in order for you to truly be financially free. There's one thing you have to own and it's your time. It's your most valuable and precious resource so when we go back to that simple answer of cash flow exceeding expenses that cash flow that you have coming in from your assets from from what you've put put aside has to be passive. It has to be income. That's coming in independent of you trading more of time to get it and you know as you mentioned we're on we're we're sitting in a hotel room about to go to our fifth funnel hacking live. We talked to a lot of entrepreneurs a lot of business owners a lot of W. Two employees and they make good money and some of them to a certain extent have saved money but they don't own their time so that that at the core is what we do. We help empower people in the conversation of money so they can own their time. Anything you want ads in bread. There's a thousand ways we can make money right but the conversations just are we making money. It's are we keeping it and is it positioning us to do. I am of a life of purpose. Wake up every day and do what we want to do. And what we're here meant to do to bring a Puerto Rico so quickly but that phrase you said Brad exactly why I moved to this island because I know that I've been making a lot of money for a lot of years but after California taxes federal taxes. I was like am I really keeping all this money and the answer was not really the move to Puerto Rico. The four percent tax. Everything has made the ability to do that. And that's why fire nation you've got to have your finger on the pulse talking to people who are smart in financial advising like these two cats right here because they are living there eating it. They are breathing. It's and let's just break down. Why why do most people struggle not just with money but with achieving financial freedom? A great question and loaded there. There's lots of ways we could go with this one of you just mentioned you said You. GotTa get advice from Smart People in John. I'd go a level deeper than that. One of the biggest problems with financial advice today is we're taking advice from people who themselves are still broke right or who themselves really don't have they might have textbook answers right. They might have answers that that sound intelligent by. It's really really hard to follow somebody or duplicate results when you're listening to somebody who hasn't done what you want to accomplish right and so a lot of it is is. We're just looking to the wrong places. Were we think that degrees we think that letters and acronyms after our names or big You Know Company pedigrees are the thing that are going to get US financially free. But it's like I I would hesitate to take marriage advice for somebody. Who's maybe on their fifth marriage or I'd hesitate to take parenting advice from somebody who doesn't have kids yet you. It's really really difficult if not impossible to live what you don't lead. And that's an epidemic in the financial industry today And then and then second to that would be because we're listening wrong people. We we believe in ninety seven percent of financial advice becomes dangerous misleading or outright. Wrong when we're not focused on answering the right question which really centered around our first response to to what is financial freedom so fire nation. Have you ever been in that gym class or you know? Gone into some kind of doctor session. And you're getting this advice. Health advices nutrition advice from just this overweight or even obese person like for me. I'm just like my friends. You're giving me advice that you can't even take yourself like there's no credibility there's no validity in that so you've gotta find people who have been there who have done that who have results who have testimonials who have proven concepts period end of story ends. You guys are known for Bowl statements. And I'm personally a big fan of bold statements. Bullishly break this down. Ninety seven percents of traditional finest dangerous misleading in outright. Wrong breakdown force. I love that and and that's kind of a controversial statement for shore and I'M GONNA. I'M GONNA take this back You know I think everyone can learn just about everything. They need to know about life from watching the Sitcom Seinfeld. You remember that one back in the day so funny I miss it so funny but In seinfeld there's this. There's this clip that George Costanza short bald. You know living in his parent's basement and nothing in his life seems to be working out and he's in the coffee shop with Jerry and his lamenting over the fact that he can't get a dates you know he can't hold down a job. Nothing's working and Jerry points out a really interesting thing you know. He says George. If everything you're doing in in your life right now isn't getting what you want. Then the opposite would have to be true. And George Ponder that for a minute he says you know what that's right. The opposite has to be true and so he stands right up. He walks over to To the bar there. And there's this beautiful blonde woman and says hey my name George Costanza short on fat on balls and I'm unemployed and I live with my parents and the blonde woman immediately. Response saying hi. I'm Victoria. I bald men. And so that's a reality man John if if people really take a step back and they look at the financial world everyone knows it. No one will acknowledge it but there is a major problem. There is a major problem with people not saving enough money going into massive amounts of debt putting their money in retirement plans that they don't control and then if you fast forward and you look at all these baby boomers like these baby boomers. Do not have enough money to retire and the relying on the government. They're hoping taxes stay whether at their you know. There's just a lot of problems. And if we keep looking at what everyone else is doing traditionally which is blindly putting money in a 401k with their fingers crossed hoping that it works out the reality of that is that problems just going to compound and so our goal isn't to help you do. What's not working better because again when you look to the Financial World. Everything is a plus one strategy. Well if you're getting five percent over there what are you.
Did the Raiders contact Antonio Brown's agent before Brown apologized?
"Something i wanted to get to the bottom of was did the raiders in fact contact. Rosenhaus awesome tonio brown's agent. I've seen this kind of float around but i'm not sure that this is what happens i wanted to see if either of you know <hes> if he was contacted before we're antonio brown's apology on friday and told that the guaranteed money and his contract would be voided as it was at that point so at that point basically antonio only lebron's going in apologizing knowing that the thirty million is a hit is that something that we know was already told to him before the apology or i don't i think to <hes> the bottom line on that is that they didn't have to i mean he knows as well as anybody once they imposed that discipline. They have the right to go after it so i mean i think he's smart enough to know without having that conversation that that was what they were angling for. It was clear we talked about <hes> when we first saw these letters on wednesday basically all those letters. There's are is is a legal paper trail down the road to say here's what happened. We had we had these issues. We had to find him. This is what went on that's all. Those letters are for <hes> so i think rosenhaus kind of knew he probably explai- tube and there i'm positive on some level even though no it's illegal according to the rules of the n._f._l. Under the c._b._a. I'm positive that rosenhaus was talking to other teams and saying if this happens if the contract is voided if for run out what is the market and i'm sure he knew what it was and so like. Did he know those things. I don't. I'm sure he did was explicitly laid out by the raiders. I'm i'm not sure about how that worked but <hes> i'm sure he knew exactly what the situation was yeah so in other words. He knew the patriots were looking at him and that he could play there. Air instead of explicitly said i'm sure he knew what the market was. When you think of maybe this is like a wild theory and so. I got on tin foil hat. You're so picture that all of us but if <hes> excuse me antonio brown got to the raiders he was happy happy for a little while then started practicing with these guys right maybe gets the training camp and he's like what they're not going to be very good and then he's just decides besides you know what bleep this. I'm just going to act ugly. I'm gonna throw crap all over the walls until i'm just going to keep doing it. Even though you tell me to stop even though you tell me you know i'm gonna find you find me on posting on instagram like i'm going to now make it even bigger mess and then he knows that he enforce himself out because he knows that there's maybe a winner. That will be there for him. I think that it's not out of their own with possibility as i now take my tinfoil hat off and put my reporter reporter hat right back on that. This is something that could have happened because when it's five hours after somebody releases you that you are with defending super bowl champions. There's maybe somebody should look into that right. I mean i think i went once the further with my tin foil will happen i tweeted and it was more of a joke but <hes> as as everything in my life does it relates to seinfeld but there was there was an episode of seinfeld where the mets wanted to hire george costanza away from the yankees and they couldn't just hire him because it would be tampering and they wouldn't be able to go hire them away from team so they told him to do everything he could to get fired from the yankees. He started dragging the world series trophy around he was wearing babe ruth pants from the yankee museum. <hes> everything do get fired so that the mets would be able to hire him like in my mind. Bella check like a go create chaos out there. We need to bring you in. That's the only way we can get you and that's again a complete and total conspiracy. Uh but i like to think that it's true. Let's talk about some of the possible reaction and we can expect here from the raiders because i wanna in a hypothesize what derek carr might say about antonio brown's tweet of bumper cars meaning. He and his brother david had been doing some conversation about antonio brown. That's what i interpreted that tweet demean. I can't imagine it would mean anything else so cars generally very nice well-spoken guy in front of the media very even temperament. Do we expect any crazy reaction from him. Certainly not i mean he's a quarterback right and quarterbacks are always is going to be measured in what they say. Now i do sort of wish that we have been hearing directly from derek carr instead of through really an intermediary as his brother on n._f._l. Network right. I think especially because derek carr was in the locker room today and we were told as he came back in that he was not going to be talking and and that's fine. He certainly has that right and he's a quarterback. He speaks one time a week but i just think it would have been nice to hear directly from derek carr car <hes> since you know he had been nothing but supportive i totally respect dirk are not talking but i think that you know it just it just would have been nice to hear from the quarterback in that particular situation and he doesn't have to but he could've essentially descending out press releases. I mean through his approach. That's what he's doing in. They're not it's not it's not like they're being secretive about it. I think that's that's the one thing i'll say about this is like if it was just some secret that if it was some random person in the media and derek carr was feeding things to get it out there and not talking to the media locally but hey i'm gonna feed this to whoever you you know whatever national reporter and it's coming out saying oh source close to the team said like that would be a little bit different to me than in this case. It's basically his brother going on tv serving mrs mouthpiece and saying explicitly. I talked to derrick this morning. Here is what he said. I think they're being pretty open about it. It just it clearly rubbed antonio radio brown the wrong way and you know we saw the other day he unfolded the raiders and derek carr on instagram and then reformed the raiders but not car like that was pretty telling of where they are have a check dam sure he unveiled the raiders as well now he did. Yes yeah <hes> but you know. I think that was incredibly telling that when he did follow the raiders he did not re follow derek carr. You know i it was pretty clear that that relationship was was heading in the wrong way. Even though derek carr continued to say how close they were and how they've played well after field and here's the other thing it listen it's part of the job we understand but how many times jon gruden was asked how many times micmac was asked just how many times derek carr was asked about the distractions in about everything that's going on and how many times they basically said. You're inventing this you guys the media are inventing the story story. No no weren't by the way to the same thing to the readers out there to the fans out there like these things are not invented. There's a reason isn't that story. Lines are storylines. This was something that was going on and it was bubbling over all the time and it was distracting the team. It was bothering the team. It certainly had been an issue for a while and now it just has has reached that point where they couldn't deal with it anymore but i think it would absolutely not be surprising if it was something that tonio earlier brown was like i need to do this i need to get out and this is my way out and the other thing is it wasn't blown out of proportion either. That's the that's the phrase that like gets on my nerves a little bit. <hes> men like all these things you're saying. They were blown out of proportion. It's blown out of proportion. He's just a wide receivers blown out of proportion. Friggin von miller said that on on a conference call the other day no. It's not blown out of proportion when you're yelling at g._m. In practice right you're posting your fines on instagram. When you ask on instagram to be released win. You recorded your ahead coach with a stencil your head coach with the conversation. Put it on a two minute youtube video in a two party consent state. I don't really think any of these things are being blown out of proportion so i love what jonathan abram had to say on twitter and he put this out just about a little over an hour ago he says in today's world the worst drug there is called attention
Here's everything to know about the new Apple Credit Card
"All right so I remember as an apple imac die and I have an iPhone I remember a few months ago seen this thing about the apple credit card and then on scene at this morning I saw some stories about this is doing some show prep and apparently the card is available in some people got an invite I do not think I got an invite but tell me about this card and why it's different than other credit cards yes Sir apple has teamed up with Goldman Sachs to create a and master card to create a thing called the apple card which is a credit card that is of course kind of appellee in the way it works so one of the things about it is actually a lot of well you have a lot of of idea it has a lot of the way it works on your phone is is different from most credit card you get a lot of information about your spending habits and any of us who have used like mint dot com or one of those spending portals that helps you kind of figure out how you're spending trends are that's built into this into this credit card the other thing of course is it's designed to work with apple pay da and they give you two percent cash back on any purchase made using apple pay on apple products and one percent cash back on purchases made with the physical thing and three percent on some other stuff so they giving you quite a bit of money back they do it daily and they say the other thing that's really cute that's completely private a lot of credit cards actually sell the stuff they learn from your spending habits two marketers and other stuff like that apple and Goldman Sachs promise they will never said sell that information so if you didn't get an invite to apply can you just apply in your own right now say Hey I want one of these things you can you can apply in and it'll you know it over time they're going to kind of let people in right this is the first wave of people but a lot of people been playing with it like it they particularly seem to like how kind of you know the the the easy way to use it in the apt that they include with it to help you understand how yours bending stop and the fact that you get money back each day some people seem to really like that stuff you know it's interesting and I don't know if this is common but I'm just going to toss out myself as a personal example I have or I did you originally I signed up for apple pay and I started using it I mean how long ago that was so you have it on your phone you tied to a debit card or credit card and for those retail locations in restaurants and Starbucks or whatever if they accept apple pay you basically just have to swipe your phone I use it you know a little bit I think I used it like it Pinera here in Saint Louis but then after a while I'm like you know it's just as easy to use the debit card so I really I haven't use apple pay in the longest time now is that do you think that that's typical or because I think that a lot of us think that eventually look we're gonna just be using one device war or whatever something along these lines but I wonder if if that didn't catch on as much as they thought and that's part of what they're doing here with the card I think the opposite may be true I think that the number of people using apple pay is actually gone rather high and that's part of why they've been able to convince for example the New York City Subway which is why the largest in the world to start using apple pay there is there are other places dates during to become pretty standard and part of that is because it's not just apple paid Samsung pay its android pay everyone has to pay these days and because of that it's kind of becoming a standardized thing around the industry I think also credit card companies are trying to push it as an idea for a lot of people to use with her watcher with their phone and so I you know not everyone is doing it for sure but it's becoming a more more common thing so I think it'll be interesting to see how this credit card kind of fits into all that I think a lot of it really is just getting you to have another apple thing and you know it encourages you to buy apple products because you get more money back when you buy it with apple red apples card but I don't know I don't know if it's going to be more than that right I think a lot of it is you know it's titanium so it's kind of really nifty look to it and you know it it's an app has a cool factor right look with those of us who have Max we love the you know some people still use the little stickers on their cars and stuff I haven't gotten that pretentious with it but I am an apple fan so you know I I've been loyal to their products for a long time now and I make I have no regrets about that especially with all the issues that I had with PC's I'm gonna try to commit to using apple pay again you know it's funny because my wife sort of taught me a trick I have an iPhone case where you can slide in a credit card were I have like an extra bank card in there because if I forget my views this I've had this happen several times forget my wallet or I just go into a store and I don't have you know my debit card but I have this kind of hidden debit card the back of the phone well I could solve that problem by just using apple pay right you're good in in in in a lot of situations you'll be fine I think what's going to be interesting and this is like a ten year out thing is how much were able to get rid of everything in our wallets and obviously the tech companies want to this because apple get the kind of every of every purchase that's done but you know I think that there's there's this effort under way I saw just recently cosco now has an ability for you to use your phone app instead of your Costco card you've got it CVS which was a long hold out to this stuff has started now accepting these things everyone is starting to increasingly go to the phone and they're even countries outside the U. S. that allow you to have your assistance in paper so your driver's license on your phone yeah a lot of overtime it's going to become all digital which is great for my wallet right some people may be uncomfortable with this but I think it's natural and I honestly can't wait till I can get rid of my wall well and you know what along those lines because I was like George Costanza dude I had the the fattest wallet for for many years probably up and to the point about a year and a half ago I went to sort of like a money clip thing and I only keep my southwest car because I I like the the miles on southwest curse of the apple cart maybe not as appealing to me and then I keep a debit card and I have a thing here for work that gets me in the parking lot and then maybe a little cash I say maybe because you know we don't carry cash and that's it so I've really learned out when it comes to that it's a pain to especially during the summer you know you're wearing shorts and things like that to have the fat wallet so I've gotten away from that in you're right this is good idea future all right in thank you for all the help in the clarification on on the apple

"I've been in this exact same situation where I was like I'm gonna take polaroid nudes for you. But then I was like who's gonna hold the polaroid camera. My arms aren't long enough. This is this is it's actually really funny you mentioned that because I did try to take some. And I think part of the reason I didn't send them was that they did not turn out having to take the myself. And I definitely wasn't going to employ some. What else to do that for me, although girls, I'll tell you? This girl's definitely do take knew each other all the time like Riveria country willing to hope each other. Yeah. Teamwork makes dreams work guys. Not so much. We if one of my friends hit me up and asked me to take tasteful nude. I'm consider it or whatever. But I'd like I'd be pretty off put by the question being posed at all, you know. A call me. It was like I'm trying to do something special for boo. It's Valentine's Day. Will you take some George Costanza esque sexual photos of me? I would be like mica. I'm all up Ross come photograph. Mike crank. I'd be like, dude. Why me why can't anyone else do? But. Yeah, I'd probably do it. Anyway, just for fun. Just because that's a story that you can't eat probably let do it. I'd probably go do it. Anyway, she said, but what did I probably come do it? I'd what's wrong with you everything. Okay. Question about for you before we get in all these hotline calls from listeners. What is it that you make that you think makes you and jesse's relationship work like everybody hasn't dynamic to their relationship that makes it work. You know, it's some point. That's why relationship what is it? What is y'all's? I think I really like this question because Jesse and I have a very different relationship than any relationship of ever been in. And I think what makes it work for us is that we're very very different people we have overlapping interests and passions in like, we we don't have problems picking movies together and stuff like that are approaches to life are really really different and before him, I tended to date men who were really similar to me and the relationship almost always crashed and burned. So after like when I met Jessie, I had gotten out of a pretty traumatic relationship with someone who's personality wise, very similar to me and Jessie was really appealing because he was so different. And I tend to be a little bit more sensitive and emotional like, I'm creative person. And I think those things come hand in hand sometimes, and he definitely has it site, right? Yeah. He definitely has that side to him. But he's definitely more logical and steady. And I think that we bring out those qualities in each other. So if I'm really up here and having like a day where my anxieties through the roof, I can call Jesse. And he can he has the ability to make me laugh about it. Or if I'm in a really, bad state illogic logic me out of it. Like, I struggle with health things -iety sometimes and I'll call him, and I'll be like am I having a heart attack, and he'll be like Serena's a meteor gonna hit you in the face tomorrow. Like, no, you're not and. For those of you who are unfamiliar with it where you think something's wrong with you healthwise, and it gives you anxiety most of the time for no reason. Yeah, exactly.

"George Costanza Kramer, talking to you. For those of you who may not know who I am. I'm a Fox News legal analyst former trial lawyer spent about fifteen years anchoring various programs on Fox News, author of the number one New York Times bestselling book, if I do say so myself the Russia hoax the illicit scheme to clear Hillary Clinton in frame, Donald Trump. You can still order it on Barnes and noble and Amazon dot com or go down to your local bookstore and pick it up. It is the I think desk reference for all of the corruption at the FBI and the department of Justice in clearing Hillary Clinton. And then sudden up Donald Trump trying to frame him for the things he didn't do. So here we are just four days away from Christmas. And the government is supposed to shut down at midnight. So I'm going to talk about that over the course of the next hour love to hear your opinion. I happen to be of the opinion. Let's shut down the government. What do you think? Give us a call at one eight hundred nine four one Sean that's one eight hundred nine four one seven three to six. All right. So here's a novel concept. I am all for shutting down the US government at midnight. Let's do it. Why not? I mean after all it doesn't really mean that the entire US government and all of its operations will actually close so pay. No attention to the media and liberal hysteria. Lives will be lost the sun won't rise. The world will stop spinning on its axis nonsense. None of that's going to happen because the term government shutdown is one of the classic Washington. Canard's that people love to paddle to scare Americans. The truth is the government keeps on running after midnight. When the funding runs out less than twenty percent of the government actually comes to a temporary halt nonessential workers will go home. They get an early vacation. They do get paid not right then in there. But after the fact that's the law. So they're all for it. Great. Let's go home. I don't have to work. I get paid for it. So here's the logical and inexorable question. Why do we even have non essential workers? Why would the government be hiring non essential people people who are not doing important and essential work on behalf of Americans who are paying their salaries? What's with the tens of thousands of people who don't do anything essential as they work for the government? Why are we paying them to do nothing? Vital or significant think about this. What American business could ever operate that way? Corporations in small businesses all over America, only hire people that they actually need to work and perform services this. This is a fundamental principle of a free market economy where the goal is to make a profit. I mean, if a business operated the way the federal government does hiring loads of people, they don't really need. How long would that business last in a competitive marketplace, it would not, but the US government is you well know is the single most inefficient and abysmally run disorganization in the world, it squanders your hard earned taxpayer dollars on stupid stuff and salaries for people that it doesn't actually need. It is idiotic which I realize is redundant when you're talking about the federal government. Here's another question. Do the vast majority of Americans even care. Care if the government shutdown. No because eighty percent of all services will continue your social security checks. They keep on coming Medicare, Medicaid uninterrupted postal service doors open TSA agents at the nation's airports, still they're still frisking your crotch and your but border agents there on the job trying to keep us safe VA hospitals. Nobody is pulling the plug on the veterans who to whom we owe so much, unfortunately, the federal court stay open, and you know, given how so many judges have become so politicized and some of them like Emmett Sullivan, oblivious to the laws we learned this week. Giving all of them a pink slip would be my idea of a very merry Christmas. Sure, some parks across America, my clothes for a while not all of them. You're FHA loan might get slow to bid getting a passport renewed might take a bit longer. All right. We can live with that. But back to my principal question. Do Americans really care. They do not government shutdowns have become routine. There have been eighteen government shutdowns since nineteen seventy six when the modern budgetary process underwent a major makeover. We have time last one was just eleven months ago did the world come to an end. No, most Americans simply yawned and moved on with their busy lives. They didn't care then. And trust me. They don't care beginning of midnight tonight. And the only people who seem to have a connection fit are the usual suspects. Nancy Pelosi Chuck Schumer apoplectic that President Trump would allow the government shutdown over a measly five billion dollar appropriation to build a wall measly because our annual budget is four point four trillion dollars. So five billion is a drop in the bucket, but you know, Pelosi and Schumer predict that the sky will fall, they are the classic chicken Littles of Capitol Hill. A couple of hours ago Schumer was on the floor of the Senate ramming turmoil. Chaos. I'll let you in on a little secret Pelosi in Schumer career politicians couldn't competently manage a Dairy Queen. That is why they are politicians. They couldn't cut it in the real world. So frankly, pay no attention to their constant incessant blather about impending doom over a government shutdown ain't gonna happen. And here's an idea for you. Let's permanently fire all nonessential government workers not right away. I don't want to be a grinchey Christmas. Well, let's phase those jobs out in the next year if they're not essential. They shouldn't be getting a free ride on your taxpayer dime. Go out there in the real world, folks and get an essential job. And here's another idea I stole this one from an excellent column pen by former Representative Jason chafe. It's you can read it on the Fox News website. But his point is this as I mentioned, our current annual budget, four point four trillion dollars one trillion of that is what's called discretionary spending. In other words, congress is supposed to authorize programs in appropriate funds from this one trillion dollars. But here's the deal. They don't really do that some of their authorizations in that one trillion or undefined and broad so Trump should grab a mere five billion of that and spend it to construct the wall perfectly legal and after all members of congress do something similar they insert all kinds of funding for pet projects into bills. It's called pork in reality. It's you know. Paola to the people who support them or the ear marked funds for constituent interests. That are not fully authorized, so President Trump should simply fund the wall by just spending a fraction of the one trillion in discretionary funds. He would be using his discretion. To do. So. Now, of course, one of the great ironies in all of this is that Pelosi and Schumer have long advocated building a wall or a barrier or offense pretty much the same stuff. Amir five years ago the entire Senate Democratic caucus voted for hundreds of miles of fencing along the US Mexican border yet. Now, many of those same Democrats are blasting Trump because guess what he wants to the same thing. So why are they flip flopping on it, you know, the reason because Trump wants the Democrats wanted to, but they won't tell you that they just want to oppose anything Trump advocates, even if it's the same thing they want. They don't want to give the president of victory on one of the main promises he made to the American people when they elected him, you know, that would hurt the Democrats politically. So as you know, folks, it's all politics Democrats pretend to care about you. They pretend to be acting on principle. They wouldn't know. Principal if it smacked him upside the head you can go back even further two thousand and six Democrats in the Senate wanted a barrier on the southern border Hillary Clinton, then Senator Barack Obama Joe Biden Chuck Schumer all voting in favor of what was called the secure fence act, which would add and I'll quote here from the Bill two layers of reinforced fencing installation of additional physical barriers. Now, of course, those same Democrats suddenly have an acute case of 'em nesia. So wonder they can remember their own names. But for now, it looks like the Senate will not pass what the house passed which is funding for the wall. How can that be inasmuch as Republicans control the US Senate in the answer is one word filibuster? A year and a half ago. I wrote a column entitled time to say goodbye to the Senate filibuster forever. And for everything. And I say it again, get rid of the filibuster. It is tyranny by the minority. It is destructive not constructive. It's nowhere in the constitution. It is a rule contrived by the feckless Senate. It is undemocratic it has done more to obstruct needed legislation in America than any other artificial device. The congress has ever conjured. So what do you think you agree or disagree? I'm all for letting the government shutdown at midnight tonight. And let's get rid of all of these non essential employees. Give us a caller number is one eight hundred nine four one seven three to six that's one eight hundred nine four one, Sean. I'm Greg Jarrett sitting in for Sean on the Sean Hannity show..
