"That. I'm told that the three democrats on harris county commissioners court has spent over fifty million dollars five zero on political operatives campaign related things things that are obviously related to their own reelection. This is an insane amount of money. Whoever the republican is who runs for county judge and wins the republican nomination to face them is going to be confronting a war chest. Like you wouldn't believe and it will not have been money that they raised themselves or they'll have that it will have been money that they took from you the taxpayer because they're brazen about this now. I mean this is in broad daylight. Come and get us. They know the fbi is not going to bother him. Because it's the biden administration. You got to hispanics one black in harris county in twenty twenty one. They're gonna run amok. Nobody's going to stop them. Because how bad would it look. You got three minorities running harris county. Who cares theirself dealing. Who cares what they're up to. Who cares if they are transferring your tax dollars to their consultants and then using that money to go out and build their campaign without going too deep in the weeds. I'm gonna tell you that. Elections many people think that elections are won lost based on. How well you govern what. Your vision is many elections especially today are won and lost in the trenches that most people will never see that is the data side of the campaign and i am embarrassed to say that harris county. Republican party in the last decade fell way behind the party. I'm told i don't. I'm not close to the way it used to. But i'm told there are some consultants that got rich and did nothing in. What do we have to show for it. We lost every election. We lost the district. Attorney's this didn't have to happen. Kim hog didn't have to be rda. We could had a republican sheriff. We could had republican county judge. We could have republican district courts. We we didn't we didn't have to have a judges that would put magistrates. That would let murderers back out on the street. We didn't have to do that. That's on us. That's on our republican party for not doing their job these. The democrats started in eight with obama and hats off to them. Don't underestimate your opponent. They are so much better at the digital side than we are. We've got some old guys who think they're real smart and they show a couple of the they show a pitch deck to some investors and they go see we just a number but they're not any good. The left figured out early. Bring in big tech. Obama was being advised on his campaign and eighty on his campaign in eight by facebook. Which at the time was cutting edge mccain know facebook was i mean in fairness mccain was as out of it is. Joe biden was let. Let's not deny that. Obama brought them in two thousand ten and twelve. When twitter was picking up obama was able to go in and communicate in ways that the republicans didn't even know existed. There were troves of data. Where do you live. What is your view of this issue that issue if you're a grainy weenie and you're yelling at people that they're not agreeing wayne a. You're a democrat voter. We gotta get you out. They targeted people like that to his credit. Trump doesn't even do email for two reasons. He doesn't want to a trail because he's been in business. You get sued. But also because he's not he's not a guy himself but unlike the republican politicians trump understood you hire the best technology helps you win elections and he ran a great digital campaign in sixteen and that was a part of why he he won. They went in and figured out how to get. People owned a little bake shop and lincoln nebraska and hadn't voted in ten years. But we're likely to vote for him based on issues based on postings to to vote the democrats to their credit have hired the best people to come in and crunch these numbers in run this data and it is a data driven operation these days. We're out there going. Let's have a rally on saturday and everybody will bring a flag okay. We'll have the politicians come speak in the same group of people come out there with the same bumper stickers and they wave the flag and the politicians go. We're gonna win are yeah and then they go home and they wonder. Why do we swept every time because you just had fifty eight people show up at a rally on saturday that you spent all this effort on and while you were doing that the democrats just targeted five hundred. Eighty people where they are to get them to vote. We don't do role to the polls we just count on our voters to get to the polls you know what the black churches do. They have some big event on sunday during election. Season during early voting. They'll have a big event. Sheila jackson-lee will come over and speak might be free food. Whatever and then they roll to the polls and then they give each voter to pasture a walk along the line and give each voter a pony. Sheep vote this. These are our candidates but that's in a nonpartisan election. I know 'cause i've been in one. But in partisan elections they just tell them. vote democrat. what do we do our pastor. Say no we don't we don't want to preach from the pulpit. We might lose our tax. Id might lose your tax id. You're losing your country conservative churches. The pastors won't preach the won't speak about politics and the pulpit because they'll lose their tax. Eddie i gotta give the black churches credit. The candidates are terrible for the black community but at least they play to win and they do and they do. We lose they win but we do so graciously. We do so with such integrity. Such ethics so honorable honorable losers such honorable losers..

"I mean you guys are like the guys like you've you've played with everybody must have play with all your heroes by now a lot of young and your peter green fan. Yes those i got into him like hard in the last ten years. I can't believe that guy. Yeah i grew up. He was like a jammed with a friend of mine that played us the blues player. Yeah and i. I found out. I didn't know anything about the blues. I was. I knew johnny winner which is which is cool. But it wasn't the real deal. Then you know. Peter green was the one that can put it together for me. Oh really yeah. 'cause it's interesting so when was that when you were like a kid doesn't high school in your peter green and the interviews like clapton. You know they've they. Were talking about otis rush right and albert king freddie king and be out so i started looking for the records soon right. Yeah yeah and you got. You got the hang pretty much more learn. No well i guess so. Yeah i think there's more to it. Seems like there's more to learn if you do less. Yeah that's the thing. That was the big lesson in space. Yeah man you know well you guys certainly know how to take that space. It's kind of mind blowing because you can go you go back and forth but even in the stuff you guys play faster such a A unity of of of rhythm. I don't know what it is. But it's it's kind of amazing and i know people have compared to you guys to the band before but it seems like like when i was in you guys like it's one of those things like i imagined clapton's a huge fan. Have you met clapton. refer we played the crossroads. He must love. You does he. I hope he does what he did. Did you play with him. I decided it was a couple of times that it was mind. Blowing was fourteen and playing to cream records in my bedroom. And there's they're right here. Yeah must be great. He can still lay out the blues. Pretty good yeah but But you know like. I know he was a big freak for the band like there. Was this idea that when that band the band came on the scene. That was like it's over. These guys did it. They reinvented music. They figured it out. Like what's interesting about you guys. Even from the beginning in the way you kinda came up and put together not unlike those guys but they were sort of appalachia and they're all canadian most of them and they're coming up through country western but you guys are doing a similar kind of route sing in terms of uniquely american music. You got all the stuff in there. They don't have any of that like you know the ban doesn't so you've got this whole other element this whole other texture. I'm just blowing smoke up. Your you know what i mean because you can feel that element of where you guys come from and almost all the music too. I was homemade kind of Approach like the band. yeah Did you listen to them. Yeah it's still you know. They they wanted to fiddle to pick up a fiddle. And you know and we're mandolin. We did that instead of trying to We did it in house. I guess we wanted to hear an an through all the folk music. There's so many different. Each region. mexico has a different set of instruments. All these different so we had all that stuff. You know figured it out. Yeah i mean we still working on it but yeah would We had all that stuff to pull from our stevie. Yeah and it's still shows up in the music like like almost every record. There's some of that in there. Yeah yeah yeah. It's a while to get to the two felt comfortable. We could try to write a song in that style also time it was just know we would. We would play the old stuff. Stay true to it. Where where'd you first start. Where i feel the confidence. What's the first song you think that you did. That was kind of drawing from that directly. Was it on kiko. I was on the neighborhood record. Oh it was a song called. Be still yeah. Yeah yeah and it's Really english but it had Six eight rhythm. That's it's used in mexico a lot. A lot of music from mexico pongal. it's called. Yeah and so we wrote a a two took a tries to stab at and it worked so it opened the door to two more stuff like that to the necessary in that record. That's a great one. I didn't know colossal head. That will and i had. I had to kind of get caught up on that. But how did the So when like obviously the first record the that i was how will the wolf survive. But how did that so that happened in that time in the eighties dry. It came out of the l. a. Seen what what. How'd you get that deal. Have that work. well again. It was a blasters are on slash records. Yeah they told. Bob biggs was the main guy. Yeah he's passed away recently but So you better to these guys man. Do something sorry. I was an ep because he didn't want to invest. Yeah much into a deal to make sure he didn't. We're gonna go right. He didn't know what kind of salad or anything right. And really even with the blasters. What were the blasters more defined to him. I guess so. He's always like what are we go to the latin market this mainstream stuff and just just dry out there and see what happens and it worked. Yeah so he just put it out there now. In in the in the kids came and then a lead to survive. Why i mean it's interesting because it seems like on every record. You do like at least a little one or two of each of what you do. Do you know what i mean. You mix it up. Yeah easy no like. There's there's a. There's a rocker. Swing rock know blues jump blues and then you've got a a a mexican thong and then you got like you know maybe a little countryish stuff but you kinda mix it all up right. Yeah but and then like by the time you get to kiko then. All of a sudden did some other thing like all of a sudden everything became wove together. And there was this natural sort of movement through everything. Did you feel that happening. Well you know we did a neighborhood record. Yeah and We wanted to produce ourselves in the record. Company didn't believe us so they they kind of just let it. Dial the neighborhood record. Yeah it's it's a it's a very thoughtful record a asserting. Get their push it you wanted. Yeah yeah so So we were frustrated at in letting worker was head of warner bros at the time. He always liked the band so he puts together mitchell from he says. I think you guys have worked well together. Yeah and and a mitchell's kind of in the same place with his career. He was like man he wanted to do something. You know something different producer. Yeah yeah what will he would he who else. He work with crowded house but he did a lot of stuff interesting. Yeah and and him. In chad blake whose engineer was another. I think he's an alien yeah. He's just amazing. So we all got together and had say mindset. Let's do something that you know. No one's ever heard and we knew we knew A good opportunity to write some stuff that we haven't done before. Try to write better songs or different songs at least and that's and it seemed to work. Well so that's interesting. So that the guy who's as a producer was he brought a whole other point of view to it right because he had his own way of thinking if he did crowded house and stuff. It's not. He's not just like doing rock music. He's got a vision of some kind right guys point of view and the engineers a wizard and then so that kind of encourage you guys to to take it to some other level and what was the process of of of writing that because i mean it's pretty much universally seen as a a a masterpiece of record. Did you feel like how did you approach it differently on that record well like the first first one was stuff that we played live in end Little survive we started. Okay we have to write some stuff. Yeah we can't just play cover right so that let got the ball rolling and The differences we didn't rehearse we didn't go into you know a Pre production i. Would you know right. you weren't taken on. The road is all studio work. Yeah so we'd come up with a night or caesar songs and an idea and we take it to the studio and there you know right just build it. Build it from the bottom guy uses studio like an instrument. Yeah so that was probably the difference. You guys weren't just work like as a like grinding out songs as a band kinda and space differently. That's a that's what we did. Yeah and it worked you know and having mitchell's You know point of view. You know he. He helps us refined stuff. Oh yeah and And then chad just recording through exhaust manifold stuff..

Some some jazz in some funk but you know those guys were canadian not to judge and the one thing they were lacking was that the the latino foundation the mexican roots and that's where the true american music of los lobos comes and you can hear them.
