I'm Patrick Osborne connect with us and news radio. Cable BJ dot com there live local and they're talking about the stories that matter to you Share your opinions with Mark and Melinda at 51283605 90. Now here are Mark and Melinda. Let's dive right into the Big one. And we're talking about President Biden. In his announcement that's going to be coming later this afternoon Melinda of a new plan for dealing with Covid 19. The biggest thing is a mandate for all federal employees to get vaccinated, and he is not going to give any kind of an opt out. If you agree to get tested every week, he wants everyone under the executive branch to get vaccinated. Yeah, Either you get vaccinated or you no longer work there or for the federal government in that capacity that you were working in, and I think this extends to he's looking at anyone that contracts With the federal government that he's making that requirement for them as well. And that covers a lot of companies that do business with the federal government. It will not apply to people who work for Congress or the federal court system. But we'll get more details this afternoon at four Austin time, and you caught the interview. We'll wait. Hold on. Hold on. Let's not skip over that part. You just said lightly. We'll get back to that in a minute. Okay? Unless you want to dive into that right now. Well, I just I want you to hear what Mark said. Congress doesn't have to do this. It's not a mandate for them. It's not a mandate for the federal court system. But it's a mandate for everyone else. Have big problems with that. I think a lot of people will Now, here's my guess on how they're going to justify that. Their order only applies to people under the executive branch. Congress and the federal courts are different branches of the government, so we're going to leave it up to them to deal with it. I think that's a cop out, but I predict that's how they'll justify it. Well, that may be how they justify it doesn't work for me either. Then you should probably should have gotten with those two branches and said, You all need to do this so that I can come out and make this mandate across the board knowing it's not going to sit well when you go Oh, but we have this little group of people. They don't have to do it. It's the whole healthcare thing with Congress all over again. And you have to have health care We don't have to. We don't have to follow by the rules that we set for you forgetting that those people are working for us. We're not working for them. Yeah, people correctly get upset when they perceive that it's not equal treatment under the law. And they're going to jump on this when they hear about that. So what we're hearing so far is his order will apply to the executive branch and any private companies that have contracts with the federal government. So you start thinking about the executive branch, all those law enforcement agencies. DEA, FBI etcetera Border Patrol. And then you go down the list. The U. S military will be included. They estimate it could be four million people. Fall under this vaccine mandate from President Biden. Well, what's interesting to me? I mean, maybe this is by design, there are still going to be individuals. That fall into those categories that are not going to get the vaccine. They would rather lose their job. Then get this vaccine And when you're talking about sectors like Our safety, border Patrol eyes, FBI, even though you know everyone's gonna unquestionable, Um, we we may be losing Individuals in those fields. What does that do for the safety? As a whole here in the nation, if we have less, I mean again. This may be by design because we know that progressives really would like to see less and less of that happening, But I don't feel comfortable with that. I don't feel comfortable if you have a We're already short staffed on Border patrol. But then if you have another I don't know. Even 100 or 200 Walk off the job for this. Yeah, And when you're talking about the border patrol. Not only are they overwhelmed on the southern border, but Biden is handing them the job of vetting the Afghan refugees. Nick Wrath thought is a former adviser for President Barack Obama. He tells The New York Times. This is a key moment for Biden. He ran on competence, bringing adults back into the room..

Well, and I know this sounds very cryptic, but we're just trying to withhold it until we actually announced it at the school board meeting exactly what it is. But would be happy to provide the proof of that after after the meeting. You can't tell us anything right now. I can just tell you that it's um You know the big issue Lander this past year, of course, was the books And, of course, Now it's the masks, and there's a lot of a lot of parents upset, but the general undertone of the whole thing is, we just felt like our parental rights have been are being negated. That's the bottom line across. That's the thread that ties all this together with the mask mandates. Well, mask mandates and and a lot of a lot of concerned parents in our group. We have varying parents that have different opinions on that. Um, so I don't want to, like, make it blatant salmon about that in our group as far as the books are concerned. There is no dissent. Um, you're talking about the books that have very sexually explicit content. This is something that a group of parents have been fighting in Leander for gosh, more than a year. Now it seems like yes, sir. And you're saying that there is information that you have discovered in which these books are still being used, and the information is being kept from parents. Well, this has to do more with, um Mm. A lot. A lot of kids have, um, gotten some questionnaires about pronouns and using them that there's more to it than that. And that please tell us. You have an incredible audience right now In Leander, What can you be specific about the pronoun stuff? What's well and will be very specific about that tonight. All right, all right. I appreciate it. Susan. I appreciate you. I wanted to give you a platform there, but I just can't. Occupy a bunch of airwaves with a bunch of teases stuff you might talk about.

What they're doing is illegal. What they continue to do now for for weeks is illegal and it's time that they be held accountable and that they follow the law of the state of Texas. Yeah, now there are seeking damages and they want what they want the school district to stop requiring this to allow the parents to be able to make the decision as to what is in the best interests of their Children. And clearly this I SD thinks parents aren't capable of making that decision. There you go. That's their attorney, and that's in the Williamson. That's in round rock. Uh, we learned that the haze school district had a group of parents at their recent meeting, demanding a mask mandate. Yeah, you've got groups of people on both sides of this issue. Making demands sure would help if somebody would come up with some really, really, really solid evidence that they do a damn thing. That that would that would help your cause. Other than that, it's very clear. It has nothing to do with health and has everything to do with appearance and just so you can go see I told you, we're we're doing it. We're doing it and because we should be doing it because you're supposed to do it. That's it. Yeah, It's such a shame. It's such a shame This has happened that it's gotten. We've lost our minds. Well, some have lost somehow. Yeah, True. Listen, This is a pretty controversial story that's brewing out of Williamson County and well, it's a story about a billboard that has been raised. Calling for the removal of the Confederate monument that's on the Williamson County courthouse grounds. The billboard has been raised in Georgetown calling for the removal of the Confederate monument that's located right in front of the Williamson County Courthouse and the Southern Poverty Law Center is behind this billboard in support of, uh, the will call Patriots, which is on the East side of I 35 just south of Leander Road in Georgetown, and it reads Remove the Confederate monuments from our square.

Their first mission is to take down the Confederate statue and in Georgetown, the Splc says, we'll call Patriots will have been have been advocating for the removal of the Confederate monument for a couple of years Now. The center also mentions the addition of new papers on the courthouse square. Which they say honor Confederate soldiers has increased efforts for the Wilco Patriots to D Confederate. The historic Georgetown Square. The Confederate, in other words, a race history. Yeah, never happened. And that's a that's a That's a tragedy. Right? There is what that is to try to erase history and not talk about what's so important In the development of this country. Good or bad. It happened and you need to know about it, and that's what this is about. It's about Learning about history, whether whether you're and I'm sorry, somebody being offended by this and thinking that it's affected their life in any way as far as the statue itself. That's just a decision that you've made is all the groups. Lisa Brooks released the following statement. It says the placement of the Confederacy symbols was was systematic and intentional. Continues to do their work to the creators intended by serving as a warning to black America. That white supremacy ruled their presence in and around the courthouse is a threat to equal justice, especially for people of color is what they say. Actually, it's not It's not a threat. It's a statue. That's all. It's just It's just a symbol. It's just a reminder of, uh Have a period at the right time. That's all that's all it is. That's all it is. But, boy, if it has no real meaning, and not a big deal, then then then you'd be okay with bringing it down. No, I'm never okay. I would never be okay with bringing this down. Never. It's a reminder. It's It's important. It's important that it stay up for a lot of reasons in the statue. Statue is hurt No. One Mr Solicit falls on you Why they're bringing it down. Definitely made a lot of people uncomfortable. That's for sure. Well, then you shouldn't go to the statue there just don't go. You have that choice. Do you have that? It's the courthouse. That's what steps sometimes people have to go to the courthouse will look the other way as you're walking in. Just look the other way. If you think you got a problem with it, Don't look at it.

After the district reported nearly 500 positive Kobe cases since the start of the school year less than a month ago, they even had to close. 11 classrooms well, the haze school district reports 73 new cases among the students Tuesday, bringing the total to just over 400 cases since August. 1934 new cases were also reported among staff members and raising the total to about 83 more classrooms were closed as of Tuesday, and at all 11 classrooms are under quarantine. I guess because somebody was in that room sick is that what that means? Uh so there you go, so jump in at 51283605 90. A total of 21,230 students attend the haze school district they employ about 3300 and have about 1300 classrooms District wide and about 700. Parents and community members have formed the haze school district chapter of Families united for student safety, otherwise known as fuss. It's a grassroots organization calling for stronger safety measures in school districts. Well, I wish there was some good data that pointed to the fact that mass make a difference because it's just not out there, and I don't know how they can have accurate data on that. We've been through that a million times. Sure, I'm not gonna, But the mask has become a security blanket for school board members. That's it. It's just something it's like, Okay. Do you see it's not about making a difference. It's not. It has nothing to do with saving lives. It has nothing to do with keeping somebody from being affected as Everything to do with. Okay. You see what we're doing? Whip C. C. Okay. Are we cool? That's all it is. Yeah, yeah, You and I both had long flights recently for vacations where you had to wear a mask for 10 hours and nobody's going to feel sorry for us, But I just wore a mask for basically about 24 hours straight, more coming back from from from Greece. Goodness and I couldn't imagine having to do that every single day for the whole school day. Every day. Every day. I was wanting to rip my face off by the time I got home. Oh, okay. So you would love him and let me say you would love you on the cruise ship. Come in fact from Greece had to wear a mask. That's right. That's right. Oh, but I'm okay. I'm okay. I'm okay. You'll be all right. Make it. Yeah, you'll be all right. Yeah, Yeah. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to upset people because I know a lot of people are worried. I survived it Well, the round rock school district is being sued by a group of parents over the mask mandates. Got another group of parents are pissed off. They're following my cousin the man. Yeah. 15 parents are involved in this case, arguing the school district is breaking the law by requiring mask their attorney is Jared Woodfield is deeds cannot put mask mandates in place. What they're doing is illegal. What they continue to do now for for weeks is illegal And it's time that they be held accountable and that they follow the law of the state of Texas. You know what I've noticed is, uh, I don't think the kids are his worked up about this as some parents at school board meetings and lawyers are Don't hear the kids complaining to you complaining about wearing the master out wearing the mask or wearing it or not wearing it out here, the kids at all in this issues, I think by and large, most kids are just all right. I'll do what I'm told. I'll put it on. This is what we're supposed to do. Uh, Here's here's the attorney at around Rock to allow the parents to be able to make the decision as to what is in the best interests of their Children. And clearly this I SD thinks parents aren't capable of making that decision. Yeah, that's he's right about that. That's how the round rock school board feels that the parents are just not smart enough to help make their Children make decisions. Ridiculous and sad has gotten to this point. And it's just really too bad. And this this is not only, um, uh, schools, it's also businesses. Businesses do it. But listen, if you have that sign on your business, said we where do you go? I don't I don't see that at all. I'm seeing less and less less and less. True. I'm not even seeing. I'm not seeing the employees. But Yeah, I was in a restaurant last night. And it's one of the first restaurants have seen that had absolutely no sign whatsoever out front. And and it's it's great, but those that do, uh, you know, I'm sure if they were honest with you, it's not about yet. We're doing this because we're concerned about your safety. No, you're doing it because you're concerned about your image. And and that's Man, Uh, when we get about 10 years or whatever, five years down the road, and they're able to we're all done with this and we look back on this. Uh, Wow. We're gonna when we get some perspective on the on the big picture of what we've done and been through It's going to be absolutely mind boggling. It's going to be hilarious. When when we really get some distance on this map. No, no, I don't think it's gonna be hilarious. I think people are going to be even more angry. Warring should be More angry at the media Europe on We're all pawns. So speaking of covid and mask and things like that Joe Biden is set to talk about the delta variant today. Well.

"I think that will Think honestly, you will because they're going to feel better about getting the approval. I wish more people got it. I wish more people saw the benefits. I think there's a lot of disinformation going on right now. For me, it doesn't change much, but it may have some effect. I'm also believe the FDA approval usher in a new wave of vaccine mandates by companies, universities and local governments. Judge in Travis County is hearing arguments for and against mass mandates. Among those to speak at the hearing this week is Travis County Health Authority, Densmore walks who is in favor of mandates. Critics argue there are plenty of other respiratory illnesses like the flu, or RSV that don't require masks in public walks, argues that those other illnesses have not cause this pandemic. A group calling itself mothers against Abbott rallies at the governor's mansion, demanding that schools be allowed to force Children to wear a mask without meddling from the governor, group organizer Nancy Thompson tells CBS Austin More needs to be done to protect the kids. It is very important for me to see these kids grow up. And to see them fulfill all of their dream. The group wants mandatory masks for every school district until a vaccine is authorized for kids under age. 12 and Joe Biden is directing his education secretary to explore legal possible legal action against states. The block mask mandates in schools. Mark Wiggins, with the Texas American Federation of Teachers, says there's a lot of anxiety on campus because the rules seem to be constantly changing. Seeing the surgeon the delta cases right now what educators wanted the same thing that parents want, and that is some sort of predictability. The federal government's also look Going to using its civil rights arm to fight policies and Republican led states, including Texas, where mask mandates are prohibited by executive order Around Rock school board will meet this evening where will revisit its current mask policy at the center debate here is the opt out provision, which critics argue is not acceptable. Superintendent half a disease says he will recommend that the opt out provisions only apply to kids with developmental disabilities. Are those with special health needs that could be triggered by wearing a mask. The haze school district is still standing its ground amid pressure to implement a mandatory mass policy. Many of the more than 100 parents, who spoke at last night's board meeting are not in favor of a mandate. I think what it comes down to at the end of the day is that we we need to have the right to choose as parents. We know what it says for our Children District says about 85% of students are choosing to wear one currently The district says it will remain in compliance with Governor Greg Abbott's executive order that prohibits mask mandates. The Austin school district is moving forward with sporting events at full capacity. That decision comes after officials had previously said capacity would be capped off at 25%. Those in attendance, though, will be expected to adhere to masking and social distancing policies as well as the district's clear bag policy for items that are brought into the venue. Deadline for University of Texas students to get a mandatory covid test has been extended to Friday law students that were finding it hard to get a time slot to the university's program. Grace Clarkson Jr. Who tells cave you the university hasn't really been clear about what happens if someone doesn't get tested. They're just going to show up to class and hope it's fine. Or they're submitting older tests from like a week ago or more school is requiring a negative covid test result within 72 hours of attending class and the Texas House floor will be the next stop for a controversial voting bill down party lines of Texas. House Committee Approves of voting security bill The bill is backed by Travis County Republican Party member Robert Green. Why would you object to punishing individuals or election officials who knowingly violate provisions of our Texas election code? Those opposed to the bill say it will discourage vote. By placing new limits that will they get harder to vote. Right now. The full House could vote on the bill as long as a quorum remains, But that could always change if Democrats walk out again to block its passage, as they have done twice before.

"Live on the news radio que LBJ apple you have a great morning it is ten sixteen Alyssa is here producing thank you for joining us and if you're just checking in on mark and Melinda we're talking about a waterfall of stories today about problems in the public schools in the Austin area and around the state everything from students fighting do teachers losing it in the classroom well and that's what the real conversation needs to be about is you need to get the school district's sitting down and going okay you've got kids going after each other you've got teachers that are completely losing it what is going on and how can we get to where we can support our teachers but also support our students we're we're not having these kind of things where you've got kids going after kids are you've got teachers Yellen or teachers physically harming kids these these are all indications of things that are terribly wrong on many levels you're right let's go to lead cedar park and K. L. B. J. he's got a comment about both students being punished in the case of that school and the Leander district the middle school all were a girl was yanked down by her pony tail and received a beat down at the hands of another girl Hey Lee good morning welcome to K. L. B. J. good morning are you guys they were finally what are your thoughts okay so I have two kids in the school for them my oldest is that leader high now but when he was running that running brushy there was even come out and tell me about drugs drinking fighting although my adult child is also in elementary school I think that a middle school and she never got any support she was picked on at school the policy that they have in the school district totally thank the boy or the people that are doing something wrong as opposed to the victim does that work out you say they protect the Bali rather than the victim what what do you mean by that is that is correct my son was punished even though he was he was first and he tried to protect themselves in at running brushy when he was in middle school he was that although management thing time my daughter is where those were running brushy and I'm I repeat I'm in the process of fighting to get her into a different middle school because I refused to let her go there what is going on I think of Leander and I think okay that's out in the country that's how I was raised in a good country school you wouldn't expect these kind of problems to happen there maybe I'm just naive but what is going on in the Leander school district where this is a recurring thing every year eight seven one we are way overpopulated out here I've been here for sixteen years and there are a lot of kids the busing system can't keep up with all the kids that they need to buy number one number two there's no support for the teachers I mean I have as a parent you have to hold your kids first available you know it's there can't get in trouble at school the parents want that you know a lot of the kids and not support that the staff and the teachers and and everything like that so there's really no and I can't does something wrong the detention or Leo there's no when I try to say there's now consequences accountability yeah I got you all right Lee thank you we got a text from a listener who said they're exaggerating the number of fights at this middle school yeah they said their son goes to that middle school and it's it's probably F. fight every other month not every day so mom's exaggerating there but still take that every other month or every couple of months they're having a fight that didn't happen when I was growing up I get we're in a little bit of a different time but it speaks volumes that I mean it's almost like this parents going it's just every couple of months no big deal it's not every day still every couple of months is not something that I would want my kids subject to if I would if they were going there at another point on what Lee said there she said her son defended himself and he got punished that seems to be the case that a lot of the school districts if somebody defends himself you're going to get punished as well it's almost like the districts are so afraid of labeling anyone as bad or a bully or someone who would start a fight that it's easier for them to take that that easy road of okay well we'll just get everybody in trouble that way no one is picked out as being a bad person that's not something they all have to live with for the rest of their life and that has just created what we're dealing with at the school in Leander you've got the teachers that are so fed up with these kids not getting any kind of discipline are being held accountable that they're yelling at the kids are they're treating them bad which is not right either no it's not and and Susan have four points as a comment on that story my fox seven says that at an elementary school in the Hays district of fourth grade teachers been suspended now being evaluated investigated for reportedly screaming at the kids in fourth grade using derogatory language hello Susan good morning Paul welcome aboard hi hi Susan I have to tell you I'm a nineteen year veteran parents of Leander ISD we can talk about that in a minute but the woman that was got hot yelling at those kids that person should not be teaching I'm a special ed teacher I don't teach I take care of my children but I exactly know what's going on in Leander there's not a lot of discipline for the children or the teachers well and if any of the woman that was yelling at the children she should not be keeping I've taken my last child out of Leander because as a middle schooler and another middle school in lander Henry middle school she watched the teachers parade the middle school students well there there's no doubt that that is happening let let's take the fourth grade teacher in Hays for just a moment it sounds to me based on the limited information we have that that she is been pushed to the breaking point and is just losing and now she's been there seven years we don't know what kind of behavior she's putting up with the limitations on corralling these kids she sounds like she's just lost all patience well and she needs a check or something I don't know that I've had enough I am not being efficient as a teacher here because all I'm doing is yelling at these kids I'm not getting anything out of this these kids are not getting anything out of it it's probably time that I change my profession but it's also the curriculum she's being asked to teach possibly what they are Susan thank you Hey you make very good points but it is a shame it's our loss is good teachers are pushed to leave because of a lack of decorum discipline in these classrooms the bad behavior it is our loss but maybe that's what is needed to to open eyes here that when you don't support your staff and that these kids are able to get away with anything and everything from home to school and it is taking a toll on your teachers that they leave perhaps you open your eyes and say okay what can we do here there's obviously a problem how do we handle this how can we better support you staff how can we better support you student population you're making too much sense I know you need to stop doing that teachers have been complaining about this for years but the entire movement now is keep the kids in the classroom no matter what we need the money the money money money money yes keep them in the classroom no matter what and you can you can understand the frustration of many of these teachers here here's more of the audio this is from a fourth grade classroom in the haze school district the kids pulled out their phones and started recording this teacher they said this this was a pretty regular occurrence where she would yell and scream like this.

six counts of misdemeanor criminal may wonder how I thought that was good enough for my thought I wonder if you thought that once I assume that he knew that the police would arrive and I wonder if he thought that once he told the police listened Donald Trump owes me about a trillion dollars at the police who would go do yes a lot of money this is just an example it we're kind of cracking jokes here but this is an example of what our police have to deal with on the streets when it comes to homelessness yes yes I had money in the world that god does not belong on the streets so it's inhumane to allow him to be on the streets sleeping under bridges and behind bush is a business that is a good example you have somebody who thought they were in the right for doing that this man needs a hospital bed strapped to the bed in an IV drip to keep him sedated he does not live in reality no he does not as an alternate is your main to an army to live out there with no medication in the heat of the day it's a low grade yeah I agree it's just my opinion the site would be so rude to just sweep them up and put them in some kind of and mental health facility would die would that be rude I don't think it would be at all. well that's what they're afraid of that they're thinking that that would be in humane in and of itself is forced him to scoop them up and put him in some kind of mental health facility that that too many would be the the absolute he's out of his mind abomination he's out of his mind lies yes he's one of those monster shelters on the street so he needs to be removed from the streets physical in handcuffs and taken to a hospital side that is the only way he he's in a desperate moment right now that is the only way we're really going to solve this problem and and I don't know that anything anything different is in your name because he desperately needs medical attention right but not only those that are that are insane I get like he is in so many others are but really the the whole situation that kind of drastic action is what's needed needs to be taken Texas a mentally ill in doing that taking the others and saying you cannot sleep here we're going to you have to go here you hate you either go there or you have to go yeah go away in fact we we will we will give you a ride outside a town center drastic action that everybody is afraid to do yes that are denied to deny this man who's severely mentally ill health care is in you may yes it's not a violation of his constitutional rights to go get him and take him to a hospital that issue may that is that that is the that is the most humane thing to do it's inhumane to allow him to chase the demons in his head sleeping on the hard streets of all of Florida or Texas I think it's inhumane to allow any of this store whether they're mentally ill or whatever the situation is it's it's inhumane it's it's it's I agree with you a hundred percent the ones that are out on the streets deal that are dealing with that drug addiction we tell them here's your choice this treatment center or you leave town that's right if you're if you got alcoholism this treatment center are you leave town and the ones that are severely mentally ill and we can find we know who they are the police deal with them every day I guarantee you Florida police on Opelousas island have dealt with this guy before yeah right. not sure we know who they are that does make it is not a constitutional violation to go get this man who has no sense of reality go get him and put him in a hospital out I'm not a I I I I'm also talking about those that are just choosing this lifestyle I mean there there is that aspect of it maybe that might be the smallest portion of it. for those you get you choose to live somewhere else go use go walking down the highway yes yeah you can't live here you can't you can't be here you can't leave your trash here but we don't we're not what they did the raptor being taken is what we need to we need
