John Mellencamp Sits for National Anthem Before Colts-Eagles Game
"John mellencamp. He's still a thing apparently. He's 71 years old. And Mellon camp's music has been used by a lot of politicians over the years. He's one of these, what he's from Indiana, one of the heartland guys, sings about blue collar workers, but the guys are raging leftist, as a matter of fact, he once said that the problem with Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton is they were not liberal enough. So anyway, mellencamp portrays himself as like, you know, I'm down with the people kind of a guy. Well, over the weekend, he was at the Indianapolis game. Was it Indianapolis and Philadelphia? Big football game, and he was spotted inside a luxury suite because we all know that regular Joe's just hang out in the luxury suites. And he was stuffing his face with popcorn and his butt was in the seat. During The Star-Spangled Banner. So we got a picture of it up on the website, someone snapped a photo. Sport says mellencamp is one of America's greatest frauds. And the reality is this guy is a radical, radical leftist. But really, I mean, this guy can't muster the courage to stand up for 90 seconds. And show a little bit of respect to the men and women who fight for our freedom, he can't do that. I mean, come on. No, I don't know. I don't know if it was orville redenbacher. I don't know what kind of popcorn it was, Kyle, I'm sorry. But probably some of that, I don't know. Organic unsalted popcorn. The stuff without the butter.

The Power of State Legislatures
"Debbie and I have been talking about the power of state legislatures to address issues in particularly election issues. I mean, look at this.

And the house. 55 to 5. 5 to 5. But look at Texas, honey, Senate, 19 to 12 House 86 to 64. So I mean, you're not talking about one seat or two seat. You're talking about decisive majority. What Republicans say in these states go? Yeah. Those.

Republican Women, Dreaming in Color
"Kevin, one of the things that you have done that is so impressive is the number of women and people of color that you have recruited and women of color that you have recruited to run around the country. And I took a lot of your house candidates to the border in August. It was really hot. Next time I'm going to choose a different month to go to the border. But I have been so impressed with women like Jennifer Ruth green in Indiana one. Myra Flores Cassie Garcia. Tell me, how did you get so many amazing women in this cycle to run for office? You know, I give them all the credit that they're really, they watched a country change before their eyes and they said they would do nothing. I try to encourage am I trying to help them engage even in primaries to help them. Just yesterday I was with a couple of those stars that I think one was really Jin kings in Virginia. She's great. A navy helicopter veteran, her husband flies at F three F-18. She's a nurse practitioner. She's a state senator. She is so impressive. And Leslie Vega last night, I was with as well. Here she would be the first el salvadorian elected to Congress. But you look at my floor as you talked about. The first Mexican born woman ever elected to Congress in a seat that's 84% Hispanic that Republicans haven't had in a hundred years. She's got a stronger message than you look at Monica de la Cruz, taffy right there. We could actually have not beforehand we had never elected a Republican Latina from Texas, but elect three this trio is just amazing and so strong. But you brought up Jennifer Ruth green. I was just with her last week. An air force academy graduate just impressive Democrats didn't even think the seat was competitive. She is in the game in Indiana and just really the future of what you're looking at.
Gabe Eltaeb: The Importance of Hero Storytelling
"Was that like for you, Gabe? I mean, you know, getting that job and being able to illustrate and tell the stories of those heroes that you grew up with. It was amazing. It's like imagine we all wanted to be a ballplayer where a little, but two dreams for me were defensive ends for the Denver Broncos or comic book artists. I got one of them. I'm a big guy. I'm 6 foot four, played a lot of football coach for a lot of it. But imagine you go on your favorite team, Todd, and not only do you get to your favorite team, your favorite player is the one that picks you. That's what happened for me. Generally personally hired me. My favorite artist from when I was 12 to work in his studio and joined DC Comics. So that's what it felt like. It felt like a humbling blessing. It was so amazing. Comic books are an original American art form. There have been invented about a hundred years ago in this country. And so I took a lot of pride in that. I take a, this is our cultural heritage. And stories about heroes are so important. And identity politics are ruining everything. Someone told me a great CF Lewis quote that we don't tell children fairytale to tell them the dragons are real. Children no dragons are real. We tell children fairytales to tell them dragons can be slain. And when you see Superman in Batman and Luke Skywalker in Indiana Jones and all the classic heroes of yesteryear overcoming their own fear, standing up to evil, even though they could be killed in prison, ruined whatever, they still stand up and win and that tells all of us, we can stand up. So that's what I did. They started getting a little woke 2013 14, a little more a little more and I kept my head down. I'm like, well, it's not the comics I'm working on. Kind of weird, and it was a quarter of our books, half the books. And now they've gone nitro crazy. It's all the books are just identity politics. I am Mexican and Libyan. My father escaped Gaddafi's socialist regime. They murdered my dad's Friends and my grandfather, he got hit by a car by accident because my dad was speaking out against Gaddafi. I do not come from cowards. But we stand up to these people that want to silence and cancel. And we canceled a chance lose. And we always follow the law, but

The 'Phallic Phobia' Argument
"Go to cuts. One 29, PhD from UC Berkeley. Laurel Westbrook talking about trans sports. Again, I'm picking on Berkeley just as an example, but I want to be very clear, University of Texas, Austin, university of Florida, university of North Carolina, Indiana University. They all have elements identical to this. It just so happens Berkeley is a little bit more brazen with this. It's an epicenter, but they're a little bit more cavalier. Andrew says a little. Yes, a little. Play cut one 29. This belief in the innate superiority and threat of male bodies account for why cisgender opposition to transgender inclusion, organizes predominantly around the presence of transgender women and not transgender men. This suggests that gender panics around transgender people might more accurately be termed penis panics as they are fueled by the terror of penises, particularly penises where they should not be. Because where they are in women's restrooms or locker rooms or sports teams is then dangerous to cisgender women and girls. I remember the first time I heard this argument, the first time I heard this argument, they said it a little differently. They said you have phallic phobia. I said, what? I mean, look, this last person doctor Laurel Westbrook. She should not be teaching a class. This is a very sick person. I mean that. She's a professor. And she says that this comes from phallic phobia, or it's because there are penises in places that they shouldn't be.

Biden Asks if Dead Congresswoman Is in Crowd During Speech
"President Biden, somebody forgot to put the pill in the porridge. This morning, he was giving a speech up in Washington. And the guy was just all over the place. Biden went on to say that he didn't even know if he was talking about Tom vilsack. He couldn't remember who he was. You heard from senator secretary vilsack. Senator, excuse me, who are you? How can the society's doing a hell of a job? Unbelievable, and then he goes on and he's talking about he was calling out a Jackie wall or she was the congresswoman from Indiana. We're going to play the audio and then we'll fill you in all the rest of this. I want to thank all of you here for including bipartisan elected officials like representative government, senator Braun, senator Booker, representative Jackie, are you here? Where's Jackie? I didn't think she was going to be here. To help make this a reality. No, she's not here, mister president. She's dead. What's wrong with you? So he's calling for Jackie. She was killed in a car accident in August. What two of her staff members were also killed and Biden knew that because she put out a statement. It was a very nice statement to mourning her loss. So the idea that he either forgot that she died or or and this could be a possibility, maybe he thinks she's still alive.

'Nation of Victims' Author Vivek Ramaswamy Shares His Backstory
"Who aren't familiar with your story. You have a very, very short buyer on Twitter. All it says is capitalist and citizen. Tell us your story tell us where your family hails from and why you wrote the book and what else you do during the day. Yeah, sure, absolutely. So, you know, the capitalist and citizen that captures the most important parts, but I'll rewind the clock. My parents came to this country in the late 70s and early 80s. And my mom and dad, respectively, they came to Southwest Ohio, where I was born. They came from Kerala in southern India. Yeah, so they're both in Indian immigrants. And yeah, actually, it's a funny story about that. My dad, I would frequently ask him, why'd you come halfway around the world to Cincinnati, Ohio. And he said that his older sister was in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and that was the closest place he could find a job at the GE plant and even to Ohio. Then of course, begged the question of why his older sister came out around the world to Fort Wayne Indiana and our family joke is that it is the only U.S. state with the word India contained the name of the state. So that's the family story and the joke of how we ended up in the Midwest. Grew up there. I went to Harvard for college, thought I was going to be a scientist, graduated in 2007. And I got into investing. That was interesting. On the eve of the 2008 financial crisis, getting a job at a prominent hedge fund in New York City. Pretty interesting. Shaped a lot of my views of capitalism in ways that even affected my books. But anyway, from 2007 to 2014, I did that in New York. I was a partner at a hedge fund. I managed to BioTech portfolio. Three of those years I spent at the same time in law school. I went to Yale for law school from 2010 to 2013, kept my job at the hedge fund as well. When I came back to New York City after law school, I just had my hedge fund job. And so I took the extra time for a 6 month stint and stand up comedy. That did not go well. Hang on. Hang on, hang on, hang on, hang on, hang on, hang on, what did you just say? You didn't stand up. There's a lot of people in this story. I haven't told a lot of people this story. I did 6 months to stand up comedy in New York City.

The GOP Whip Race in the House
"Beltway has many, many competitions within it right now. One is underway to become the minority whip and a new House Republican majority should that come to pass. Kevin McCarthy, the speaker, Steve scalise, the majority leader who would be the whip. Many people think it will be at least, but I think Elise Stefanik wants to be chairman of education and labor and razor national profile. Whip is an inside game. Jim banks of Indiana is my favorite candidate for that and it turns out David drucker was doing some reporting and he finds out Jim banks campaigning for it. What do you say, David, good morning? Morning hill. Yeah, I was in Iowa over the weekend and Jim banks was just outside of Cedar Rapids. Speaking at an event, we're actually Henson, a freshman representative from that part of the country. And he's traveling all over the place. And of course, this is what you do when you want to try and build a majority, win in November, but also when you want to try and collect chips and votes for a leadership election that will occur after election day. And of course, Republicans need to win the majority for this slot to open up, but I spent a little time with banks. And he talked about how he's used the job. What do you think is Kevin McCarthy as a potential speaker? And how he thinks a Republican majority will function if they can win and remember again, it's the problem you want, but winning these majorities, especially when they're still going to be a Democrat in The White House and the Senate, even if Republicans win the majority without 60 votes, it can be very challenging.

"indiana" Discussed on #WhoWouldWin
"Points. You're making their james now. First off the cannon version of lara croft absolutely can go through the entire situation and go through these harrowing experiences and survive with just one life. Is this video game physics. james. I'm not the one playing lara croft in this battle. It's the cannon version who did do all the things who does know all the languages who is considerably a genius level. I q and absolutely could accomplish all these intellectual feats indiana jones done without question. A couple of things to talk about here. That you brought up is indiana jones. When he fights one of the things. I noticed a certain pattern that developed watching every indiana jones fight is that he fights in an effort to run away a heck of a lot. He doesn't fight and then stand over people and then get his victories. He's often fighting people away from himself so he can try to escape. That's not going to work in a who would win battle. You talk about motivations. He's much more about self preservation. Most of the time then actually getting over on his enemy. The other thing is that you brought up a great example. I didn't think about of how it works together until you mentioned it. But he was mind controlled in the temple of doom movie. He turned into a bad guy. Through this ancient. You a mystical mind control. So what's stopping the lara croft. Fear gas that. I mentioned in my point number one from overtaking him and just frankly causing him to be not a threat anymore at least for two minutes or that she could dispatch him or he just runs away so first of all he's usually in the middle of large armies or groups of people infiltrating places. Where then they you know. He's got to do something and they come after him. And instead of standing taking on full armies he fights his way out. That's the thing he does number two. Does laura croft have the same stuff on hand that was used against indiana jones and temple. The do maybe she does. I'm just asking i'm asking. Does she have the fear gas. She has it in the games right. She does not have those mccreevy and nor does she have the ability to tie down for a long time and then the gas down. It's up in the air. I ramming points from ray. Hurt two points for me. We're now at the turning point. This is where you have to tell us who you think is heading the battle and what the other side has to do to pull out the victory. I want you to listen closely. Because this is the sound of the almighty raise train to tooting. Its way back into the fight. Because ray brought up some excellent points about laura's training and to her abilities and your point james largely rested on assuming that she couldn't get out of the same situations as indiana jones purely because she wasn't in the situations and then video game respond logic as rape pointed out at ultimately is in the hands of the player but in this case the player is lara. Croft who has all of these capabilities. The intelligence the skill the training to survive in a lot of ways. Do i think that she would stand in the middle of a nazi army or in the middle of thuggish temple and try and take on everybody at once. No i think she would use the same kind of intellectual acumen as indiana jones to fight who she needs to to get away ultimately to get over at the end that the point about hunting as you pointed pointed out largely immaterial. A lot of people hunt at the guy who owns jimmy. Johns is a big game. Hunter doesn't do anything for me james. So it's mola ram not mola ram so you played by the great actor Puri he played. Mola ram in indiana jones and the temple of doom. Wait till you hear how james. I've been pronouncing laura this entire time. Anyway as we get back to the point about fear gas and and mind control one fear gas one form of mind control can be comparable to the next if we assume that. Lara croft's mind control. Gas is on the level of something. Let's say like scarecrows. Out of the dc universe or the hypnotic effects that you're getting from mola ram in indiana jones and the temple of doom than at least for a very short period of time typically video game logic. You're talking about. Israeli pointed out two minutes of confusion for dr jones. Is that enough to take him out of his logical place for her to get one over. Possibly as you bring up captain kirk fighting abilities. It's a lot of fists used first and then logic applied later for those listening. See the episode where he fights gorn. That will tell you everything you need to know about. Captain kirk fighting now. I won't say that the the brawler logic is all. There is the indiana jones. James pointed out. He does have multidisciplinary training. And that's true. He is a soldier. He has marksmanship. He has all these things and he is in peak physical condition if we are assuming in both cases you are choosing them at their absolute peak. So ray you calling him a broken down. Old man doesn't track if we're saying. His physique is the same as it is in raiders of lost ark versus the alien one that nobody liked at the end so for saying that he's thirty five to forty in the best shape of his life having survived all kinds of things including world war one with mustard gas. And all of that. We know that he's a survivor. We know that he's smart. We know that he can get a lot of things done and in high pressure situations his mind is sharp as a tack that can also be said of lara. Croft who you pointed out survived things that only buster. Keaton has survived taking an avalanche to the dome and not reacting. But i will say the first in the first round james had a bit of an edge based on the sheer knowledge and breadth of the abilities and materials possessed by indiana jones so he was slightly ahead and now your neck and neck going into this final round because his ray pointed out. Laura's no slouch. It's not someone playing the video game on easy it someone with complete mastery. Perhaps that's ray. He talks a lot about. Is video game prowess. I can't say i don't watch his twitch stream. I don't know if anybody else does either. Thought that brings us to this round where you gotta lay it all on the line right now. We've talked a lot about physical fighting abilities and weapons that you have on hand with some mentions of just basically mentioning genius level. I q or e q. In both cases. So what. I need knowing that yes. They're both fight trained. Yes they both have mastery of weapons yes. They are smart. How are they gonna put all of that together. Assume again a friction. The surface assume they are evenly matched. Assume that they are at the peak of their abilities. What is the one thing that indiana jones has that lara croft. What is the one thing that lara croft has that indiana jones doesn't that puts them over the top. That is what i'm looking for here. Because right now you both are making some very compelling arguments even with ray calling bogut bubba effet and you calling.

"Gotta stay grounded fun fact. It's pretty well known that lara croft character began as shameless ripoff of indiana jones. And originally she was planned to be just another male protagonist before the team at core design reconsidered but even after deciding that she was going to be a sheep. Her original name was laura cruise but the uk based team liked the name but they really wanted to lean on the character being british so they opened up a local phone book and they've found the closest name they could to laura crews and it was lara croft in the phone book. So that is lara croft. People have not been using books for years. And you've just demonstrated exactly why you we still need these things to be at the. I mean this was nineteen night mid nineties. Phone book still had to use back then. The internet was still barely thing. That is true. That's true. I will done right now. Here the details for indiana jones. Indiana jones is created by george lucas and first appeared in raiders of the lost ark. Back in nineteen eighty-one reno archaeologist professor in nazi hater indiana jones born to medieval history professor henry jones and his wife anna and he spent much of his youth traveling the world with his father before his mother died of scarlet fever indie growing restlessness. Teenage years joined up with pancho via for short time before enlisting the belgian army to fight in world war one after returning from the war indian rolled in the university of chicago. God is green archaeology and secured a job as a professor at marshall. College despite being gifted professor indiana jones continued his adventures and put his world-class archaeological skills to the test. Numerous times to cover some of the world's greatest secrets as well as defeating the forces of evil trying to find them. And here's interesting. Fact about indiana jones. Did you know there's a very strong. James bond connection the indiana jones franchise and that. It's not just sean connery. it's true. Sure sean connery played india. Joan indiana jones father in the third installment of the film franchise however indiana. Jones himself was inspired. By the james bond franchise rumor. Has it that george. Lucas and steven spielberg wanna beach in hawaii. Waiting for the crisis for star wars to come in. Because you know that's the thing to do when all of a sudden lucas told spielberg about his idea for indiana jones. The conversation started when spielberg said he'd always wanted to direct a bond film and lucas said he had a better idea. That's when indiana jones was really born. And now you have the facts about opponents rama. Do you have any questions before we get started. I have one question for ray. Are you sure. You don't want to pick laura croft. Uk citizen as the version of lara. Croft you'd like to battle that you know. I did a lot of research into the survivor version. Not as much into you know what. Change it up. We're gonna use uk citizen. You know what. I'll stick with my research. I'm going to stick with robert very convincing. But i'm going to stick with the with the version. I got okay okay. And then james. You said the version of indiana jones using involves all of the movies that we know starring harrison ford but also the video games and does that include young. Indiana jones does that include the river phoenix character from the third film. It does leaving anything in particular out. I'm actually leaving something kind of interesting out. There's been a number of different series of indiana jones. Comic books and there was a later series in the nineties. That actually is not canon however the series in the eighties. That came out kind of in the middle when the movies were coming out is considered part of the lore of indiana jones. So i will be using the and oddly enough. This works to raise favor. The more fantastical comic book series came out the nineties. Where crazier stuff happen. I'll stick more with stuff kind of more line with indiana. Jones did got it. Those were my only questions now. Gentlemen please proceed to your battle. I love an ra. Go ahead and hit us with your point number. One point number one for lara croft. Let's talk about her weapons and equipment because one big thing that lara croft is going to have an advantage over. Indiana jones is the fact that indiana jones was a long time ago. He's from the early nineteen hundreds. You know he fought actual during actual times. When actual nazis where thing that means that the weapons equipment etc that he's going to be using while outstanding for their era are not going to necessarily hold a candle to some of the weapons and equipment. That lara croft will have today. They didn't necessarily have these type of grenade launchers at the ready back in world war two at least not the way in the stability in the handling that they have them today to. Let's talk about her weapons and equipment first off the twin pistols. Lara croft since day. One has been going full. John woo odd her enemies without even thinking about it she uses two pistols and she shoots rapid fire. One thing about both of these universes is if you get hit by a bullet. It affects you. You don't shake off bullets in the tomb. Raider or indiana jones. World's we've seen one shot to the head takeout just about anybody in both of these worlds. Whether they'd be a fantastical tomb. Raider action sequence or a bar in cairo for indiana jones. Additionally i think she has the advantage with hand ahead weapons. Indy has whip obviously james. I'm sure you'll bring plenty about that. But laura brings a red climbing acts which wasn't so much a thing in her original iteration but it's a huge part of her character in the survivor story. Line a climbing accident. She could use to hit the side of a mountain or ice sheet and pull herself up. But it's also very very sharp pointed and very very sharp lengthwise to the point where she can sneak up behind people using stealth to her advantage. Because she's very good at being quiet and in creating dark areas. We'll talk about that later. But she sneaks up behind people in slits their throat or puncture some with the climax. She's able to pull the stealth move on indiana jones. He ain't gonna see it coming and she's gonna take that climbing acts and she's going to take him out with it she also in the newer iteration is fond of using a bow now. Indiana jones says his pistol whip. He doesn't really have an answer for a bo. We've seen him run away from bow wielding characters quite a bit and she has special additions. Enhancements if you will that she could put on the arrows whether that be fire explosive one that creates a poison cloud in my favorite one that causes fear and causes. That person who gets hit in the kind of scarecrow gas to attack their enemies and become basically useless to combat situation. Heck she has a silver strike bowl at one point that can pierce multiple enemies at the same time shooting upwards of what is it three shots at the same time fantastic. Additionally she's a genius she craft equipment or healing supplies on the fly based on her knowledge of the world around her of the of the herbs that she finds she can create healing balms using those heck mystical artifacts. I think so. We're not could actually use them. Of course that would be completely outrageous. But let's face it lower cross bit around mystical artifact or two and there's no telling where you might find i don't wanna bring up any specific examples because that would be unsporting of me but let's say you'd never know what she's going to have and that's my point number one. Okay so let me just start this off saying lower. Property is absolutely fantastic character. Bad ass deathly. You gotta respect everything that she brings the tables in terms of stealth. That's pretty cool. That she's stealthy. I will bring up. Indiana jones actually trained in espionage and infiltration methods in so stealth is also thing he can do. Let's see the bow. Quick question and fast. Because maybe i miss it. How many times has indiana jones hit with a with an arrow. 'cause he's been shot at with an arrow many many times. I mean he's had clouds arrows. Come adam and not been hit. That.

"Um, although I think you you know you look at some of the city is not just an Indianapolis but some other cities around the country that has sort of urban populations. And I think, um, you know, you see a recognition that Wow, the school system isn't really working. So what study? What's the alternative? Or what's the solution? And rather than a complete overhaul the school system people sort of support the idea that like well, you know, instead of over a complete Overall, I could Instead get a voucher and send my child to a better school that suits my needs. Yes, I'd be in favor of that. And as we said, you know, Clear Majority 59% do support school choice. Overall, um, opposition to school choice is most pronounced among self identified Democrats with 31% opposing. But it's just 31% majority still support school choice and and so I think it's not an abandonment of the public school system as a whole. Again. It's well there. Easier solutions because I think people recognize Overhauling school systems and changing schools. The public schools in general is not exactly an easy task, but you're right. Just 27% of registered voters believe the public schools in Marion County are going in the right direction and 38% that it got knocked on the wrong track. Um, obviously, um, You know, I think it's no surprise. You see a more optimistic view Charter schools with 34% believed they're headed in the right direction. 22 23% Excuse me say they've gotten off on the wrong track. So I do think it's sort of interesting that, um, you know, almost 60% support school choice. But the way that charter schools reviewed in Marion County is an overwhelmingly supportive. It's generally positive, but it's not like 50% say, Oh, you know, we think they're going to the right direction. I'm afraid we got a couple minutes up here. I want to make sure we hit these final two issues vaccinations, and we did this right around the time that the FDA approved the Pfizer vaccine, but I thought it was interesting when we asked whether folks been vaccinated or not vaccinated. About 20% said. They are waiting for full authorization on 30% said they are worried about the side effects. Yeah, and, uh and I think one of the things I point out to just what we're talking about Vaccinations, you know, while and I don't have the up to date numbers, But when we have you know, about a week ago, I looked. It was about 50% of the county, I think has been vaccinated. And so when you look at the 69% that we have in our survey that say They're fully vaccinated. If you need to remember again and this goes to registered voters versus total population verse, you know any other methodology? And so, um, I think that's why you see that. Obviously, we don't have anybody under the age of 18 in this survey because it is registered voters, um, but I do think it's It's sort of encouraging that 20% of those people who say that they have not been vaccinated yet, um We're waiting for full FDA authorization, so I would expect to see hopefully a little bit of a jump at vaccination rates. Obviously, you can't say for sure. Um, but, you know, I do think there's obviously some positive news in that, But you know the side effects That's a major issue. 30% of those who haven't been vaccinated, said it was because inside effects, there is a disparity between white and black voters. 73% of white voters say they're fully vaccinated. Just 59% of black voters say they are Um, and with black voters, 41% say that, um the side effects are major barriers. So I think if you're a public health official sort of overcoming that barrier with black voters, or I guess citizens, I should say in Marion County that's one of the you know, telling barrier that you need to overcome. But I think with the full authorization from the FDA, I think that should hopefully help boost the numbers a little more in the county and other uh 11. My almost near the end of my questions, my friend. The issue of legalized marijuana that I thought was just like, Wow. But whether was legalization for recreational and medicinal as well as just medicinal purposes. I gotta be honest. When I first saw the results. I was a little surprised myself. I don't think it's I don't think it's surprising that people support legalization to some extent. But you're right. 65% in Marion County support full legalization for recreational and medicinal leaves. I mean, those are pretty large. Numbers and then in additional 20%. Support legalization for medicinal use. Only. So you're talking 85% of registered voters support legalization of some kind and just 10% oppose it. Um, you know, I made the point to you, and I think it bears, you know, beating. I think lawmakers are usually skittish on large scale changes, especially when it comes to something that is viewed as sort of a vice, potentially But to me, this is kind of a no brainer issue. You know, just one in 10 voters oppose it. Those are the kind of numbers when you do polling for any sort of elected official. When you're looking at, you know issues to support or you know how the public views their stances. These are again these are no brainers still like, Look, you don't have to worry about blowback on that. And you know, Republicans usually are going to be the ones who are a little more hesitant to change on something like this. 51% of Republicans support full legalization and 21st 26 per Stan. Excuse me, a Republican support legalization. For medicinal use, So it's not like these. This is a partisan issue. This is across the board support and something that voters clearly are open to, and I think that, you know, they see what's going on around the country here in Illinois, we have full legalization, and I think obviously you're just next door and in Indiana. I think people are aware of what's going on. And no, it's not like all of a sudden, like You know, but the drug cartels moved into Illinois. I think people are a.

"Critical medical care. Yesterday we received updated reports on available ICU beds in hospitals across all 10 emergency preparedness districts in our state. Four of those districts reported utilizing more than 100% of their ICU beds. Those districts were 235 and 10, representing the northern North, eastern, central and southeastern portions of our state. The majority of the hospitalizations continue to occur among our older Hoosiers. This is the age group in which we have seen the biggest increase. But we've also seen an increase and Children being hospitalized. Many of these Children are not yet eligible to be vaccinated. To anyone who argues that Covid 19 does not impact Children. I can assure you that every parent with a hospitalized child would disagree. This search continues to be fueled by the extremely infectious Delta variant. Nearly 98% of the new cases were sequencing continue to be this variant. We only send a portion of tests for sequencing determine if a variant is present. But this sampling provides an accurate representation of the level of the variant in our state. None of this is good news for Hoosiers. I've heard other medical professionals around the country state that this is the darkest time in the pandemic. Unfortunately, I share those sediment sentiments. I want Hoosiers to understand that this search isn't just impacting the individuals who are being diagnosed with Covid. It impacts the person who might need a biopsy to see if he or she has cancer. The accident victim who gets held in an emergency room because there are no staff to put him in a room. The person who is depending on a joint replacement to relieve their extreme pain. I saw a photo recently have a young cancer patient from Indiana, sitting in the back of a patient's man instead of being inside the hospital, where there were no beds for him. It was heartbreaking. We have begun seeing hospitals cancelled or postponed some non emergent procedures again to ensure that they have the capacity for the severely ill or injured. Have incredible empathy for Hoosiers all over the state who are having their healthcare procedures delayed or otherwise impacted because of the hospital capacity issues. I want Hoosiers to understand that the decisions that they are making effects affect others. It's incredibly disappointing to have effective tools such as the Covid 19 vaccine. And still have nearly half of our eligible population refuse to get it. We will continue to throw everything we have at this surge, but even that presents challenges. This week alone. We scheduled almost 50 different mobile vaccination testing sites throughout the state. In the first three days. We provided more than 5000 tests and administered more than 800 vaccines are local Health department administered more than 11,000 tests during the same period. Statewide across all sites well over 200,000 tests have been administered this week. Testing in particular is very much needed right now, given the increase in transmission. At some of our sites. We are seeing positivity rates close to 20%. We have 10 mobile units that we take into areas that are where we are seeing high transmission. We recently created a request form for communities to use if they want one of these units. Once we get a request, we work with the local health department and the leaders to identify locations that are willing to host these operations. Unfortunately, due to the high volume of people seeking testing traffic is overwhelming some of the locations that we that have agreed to host us. Some have requested that we find a different site to ease the congestion and ensure that their regular operations are not disrupted. This means that a three day clinic that was planned for a particular location might have to change. In these instances, we are sending text messages and emails to the individuals affected to notify them of the change. We're doing this as quickly as possible. But please understand that many of these changes occur at the last minute, sometimes late at night. We also are trying to get more testing into school settings both through our mobile units and by offering by an ex now rapid tests in schools. These rapid tests can quickly assess whether a student symptoms are covid or not, And this can help reduce the quarantine and keep our Children in school when they're healthy enough. To be there. We sent out a survey this week to more than 2000 schools to ask whether they were offering testing and offer by an ex now test. A total of 318 schools responded by the end of the day yesterday. Those that responded. 35% indicated that they were already offering testing. 53% indicated that they were interested in receiving by an ex now cards. We will be working to get those cards to the schools that are interested as quickly as possible. Given the low initial response rate. We estimated that only about 10% of schools across the state are offering testing. We will reopen the survey to give schools that didn't respond another opportunity to express an interest in testing support. These tests are easy to use and can help keep as many Children as possible in school and participating in activities. I also want to note an important improvement coming to our school dashboard. Next week, we'll be able to add a talk of feature to the school dashboard that will differentiate between the school years, including showing which schools have reported as required yet this school year. This will show that more than 1200 schools have not reported this school year as required. I want to stress that these cases must be reported to the state. Unfortunately, we have many more weeks of this high level of activity before we can expect this Delta surge to start declining and that's why it's imperative that every.

They're celebrating their fiftieth year. And we wanted to help them celebrate by having him on the show talking a little bit about them all that they do and just kind of you may be hearing in general naomi. Welcome to the show. Thanks glad to be here. I am really excited to get into talking about here. And even though you guys are down the hall i swear. I don't know that much about you but before we get into that. Could you tell her listeners. A little bit about yourself and your background sure. I'm the ceo. I've actually been involved with here. Nina since two thousand and six. My background is speech. Language pathologist and i actually moved here from north carolina and when i was at the university of north carolina chapel hill. That's where i first met my cohort of death. Kids that were learning to listen through cochlear implant technology. And that's what i kind of fell in love with as a career choice. And then when we moved to indiana. Originally i was doing that in my own. Private practice found out about here indiana. Which at the time and we'll talk about this. I'm sure over. The next little bit was quite a small organization but they were doing advocacy for the same deaf and hard of hearing population and i found niche and thought. This is where i'll be and yeah here. We are fifteen years later. Excellent excellent. well. I think we gotta really start with. What is here indiana so today. We are a robust nonprofit. We have about thirteen employees and we have the clinic here like you said at forty seven forty kingsway drive where we do. Speech language pathology for deaf children specifically. We have audiology pediatric audiologist. Who see anybody from a newborn baby all the way through exit from high school. Do the newborn follow up testing here in the building as well. We also cochlear implant mapping and all sorts of assistive technology for hearing loss. And then we're really proud of the fact that we have wrap around support so a lot of times you know this because you do you interview a lot of folks on different topics surrounding special needs. You might go to one. Building that provides ex service And then you have to go to a different location or a different school or a different hospital for the other things when really somebody needs to say okay. Here's the diagnosis. Here's a treatment plan. And here's everything else that you probably didn't even know that you need to know. And so we have family and community liaisons. That really help find out if you need help finding proper health insurance so maybe the assistive technology needs to be covered by some kind of funder. Perhaps you need help with the school and you don't know anything about having a free and appropriate public education so we provide special education advocacy as well but really it. Is that wrap around model and making sure that we've kind of shepherded family through the systems. That's awesome because i know when we even talking in this organization the whole the silos have all these different things all these different places and and especially for folks who maybe have a new diagnosis. That's so hard because you just don't know what's out there so that's the you offer that in the advocacy being able to talk to him about the school and talk to him about these other things that you know. You don't know what you don't know so let's talk that way in any assistive technology you really. It seems like anything to do with disability in any way shape performance. It kind of goes that way. Well talked about kind of what you all do now. Let's talk about the beginning because said when you started fifteen years ago and that's been around fifty now. So how did hear indiana start okay. So let's go back. You know nine thousand nine hundred seventy one and it was a very different time in the world and in disability this was before special education even existed. Before i mean right so we're talking about a time when honestly if you were born with a disability you were either. Make it in the mainstream or you. You couldn't access that and so what really prompted. The founding families was the rebel epidemic so there was a huge increase in the number of babies being born Quite honestly to hearing parents who have who are having children and they just thought okay. There's gotta be a group of us. That's big enough that we can figure out what to do. We aren't alone. i'm now we're collecting mementos for a fiftieth year. And i'm i'm looking at these booklets from one thousand nine hundred eighties and there are a lot of families and i think about in one way. How blessed we are that we have an mr vaccine that prevents parents from carrying the german measles to their unborn child. But it really thankful that those founding families got together and quite honestly it was also a time when hearing aids were just becoming a possibility they were still big and bulky right. Children were wearing the body worn packed with the wires and harness and it was not an easy thing by any means but they existed right of course way before cochlear implants so these families really did get together. There was a group up in around. Muncie i m near ball state. There was a speech and hearing program that was called tri county association for the hearing impaired and then our organization started as the indiana association for hearing impaired children and then those kind of merged together because the indiana says he's for the hearing impaired children. Which is now here. Indiana Really had more of the statewide presence and so quite honestly they. We're super active at the state house and making sure that these children had the right to attend a neighborhood school if that was the where they wanted to go. And then it's grown kind of. Yeah the timing. Well do what it is today. Yeah so all the way back. Then i would say it was very much parent lead among very grassroots.

"We have a certain population and we're Allowed a certain number of seats under that, so we have to spread the population in Indiana among those seeds and, um, when you When you Take the county as the ultimate unit. Um, we're ignoring the interests of a larger group of people because each county at least under so far under our system, and we don't have 100 counties, so that wouldn't work in Indiana. I think the point is, we need Civil conversation, and we need competitive districts that both support and require folks to talk to each other. So we don't have the polarization that is so badly skewing public conversation today. Martha Lampkin women for Change with us for a few more minutes on the program today as we kind of walk through a study That they did looking at Indiana's legislative maps. Um Martha, Here's an interesting question for you. What do you folks plan to do with with the city plan to take it to speaker Houston Senate President Pro TEM Rod gray members of the Legislature. What you plan to do now that the studies done and complete well, first of all, we're thrilled to talk with folks like you have articles published will be you'll be seeing commentary from other citizens on this topic will also be, um, contacting legislators. Clearly we want to share this with Speaker Houston and Senator Bray and others in leadership. Because we really do want to help the process. That's the whole point. Get the energy, get information out, Build energy and threw a spotlight on this important topic. Not everybody's motivated by redistricting. So there's a lot of public conversation to take place and then we want to build for the common good. That is our goal, so sharing it with legislative leaders. Appearing at hearings that occur and then Professor Warshaw will be available to analyze, uh, districts that are proposed on pretty short notice. And so our request is as Um Speaker. Houston has promised that the process the transparent that the public have it's time to review and comment on proposed districts. We'd also like for the funding And the process of the map, actual map drawing to be disclosed, and then ultimately we are hoping and Aspire to fair maps for Indiana. Women make up a little more than 50% of our population and women's voices. We want to be fairly heard in the like electoral process, Martha My final question for you is How do you get folks worked up? Or excited over redistricting. I mean, obviously, people like us. We get no, we'd be live and breathe this stuff all the time. But how do you just get regular people? I mean, most regular folks, and you know this as well as anybody don't even know who their state representatives are much. That's what district That they're in. Yeah, well Call me Pollyanna, but I actually think there are a whole lot of people. That went good government and Hoosiers are pretty common sense folks, and I think they expect us to meet in the middle and achieve Results in the legislature that are good for the that that build on the common good, so we will be reaching out to folks in non profit organizations. If you care about how your human in your human services needs are being met. If you care about food banks in the state, you care about the consent legislation that women for change successfully got out of the house this year. We need a little more push in the Senate, but the State prosecutors association agrees with us and was very supportive. You want some of these issues to be addressed by the General Assembly? We all need to care about who's representing us. We don't all get to go to the State House. We? We elect representatives to go and so will be trying to build the energy by reaching out through the state and identifying colleagues and contacting legislators. Two. To reach that goal. All right, Well, I guess in the program today has been Martha Lampkin. Martha is with women for change. They have commission and put out a study saying that Indiana's maps are less maps are pretty much the most gerrymandered in the country. They're hoping to make some changes. Martha thank you very much for being with us. I would look forward to continue this conversation over the summer as lawmakers get way to do the map making Great conversation. Thank you. A bill. Martha Lampkin of Women for Change. You're listening to Indiana issues. I'm your host of dual. Kim Shahbazi, editor publisher of any politics at all, while U.

"To be bigger, which means you could have fewer of them. Well, I think you raise a really good point, and that all the more reason to have Competitive districts so that everyone needs can be taken into account. The rural counties have very valid issues to be addressed, as do the metropolitan areas, and so are state needs both the dynamism Of the urban centers with all of it, their diversity of economic and demographic and other diversity. But we also honor and want to, uh Support those in the in the less populated, Um Districts. I mean counties, so all the more reason to have competitive districts where everyone's interests are brought to the table, and we have less polarization. In the in our deliberations about civic issues. On that issue of gerrymandering. The Washington Post. Once I did a story back in 2014, which actually singled out Indiana, Nevada is two of the least during Mander congressional districts, um in the country. Um so What's going on? Because you folks say that is very gerrymandered. The Washington says. It's not very matter. What's what's an average regular person to believe when? Well, we can. We can cite opposing studies to that particular. Um That particular article. The fact is the doctor more. Shaw looked at all of the districts of legislative let us folks state and federal over the last 50 years and his mathematical Conclusions are reflected in the paper that we put on our website. Our guests on the program today is Martha Lincoln. Martha is with women for change. They are calling for an independent, uh, the independent map, drawing to be done this legislative session because they say they did some research and commissioned research and found out But Indiana's up maps are somewhat Jerry matter, Martha. Here's my question for you. Um how can we ever have a system of Matt making that is completely independent? Because the commission has to be appointed? And so, uh, Democrats are using point Democrats, Republicans are going to point Republicans. So how do you How do you make that redistricting happen in a nonpartisan? Manner of seeing how Jerry, which is how dry matches is the ultimate in politics? Well, that's a really good point. And, of course, when always has to balance the politics in the in the mix, But having an independent commission would really add a level of, um, public input and area. A more balanced approach. Actually, Speaker Bosma appointed the committee about five or six years ago to study this topic. Bipartisan committee appointed by legislative leadership, and they recommended an independent commission to advise the Legislature, which does have under the constitution the responsibility of drawing the districts. But the Constitution also says that the election shall be free at equal and that standard that we'd like to help the Legislature get to And I do want to say we very much appreciate, Uh, Speaker Houston's comments that there will be a transparent process and that the Legislature will meet its statutory and constitutional duties and that is very good news. Very good. I want to say also in the Constitution says that lawmakers shall draw the maps. And so I know in the past. That had been a point of contention to appoint a legislative commission because while the house may have been more faithful to the city was it was getting very, very strict constructionists and saying, Hey, they love the map of the country says We have to draw the map. So we're going to draw the maps. Right? Well, you absorb. You're absolutely right. I would say that the Legislature relies on a lot of good advice in all of its deliberations. We all hope they do and so The Independent commission would. There are ways in other states are piloting this and we can learn from their lessons. Um other states are are Founding these independent commissions, which do advise the Legislature. And then there are mechanisms for the The use of the findings of the commission. And the the Legislature is the final um, approval mechanism under the Indiana Constitution. Um, Mark, Let me ask you this because one thing I was kind of wondered, Uh, I'm from Illinois, which is a weird place in its own creature. When it comes to to to map drawn, they're about to end up in court right now, for what they did with gives an incomplete Census data. But Illinois has always sort of had. What's called nesting You have, you know 15 58 114 114 members of the House 15 members of the Senate, and so you have to to house districts, everyone Senate district. It was just a lot more compact. That way. Could you see Indiana if Indiana word or go to an Indepent commission doing something like that, where you have necessary have to house their six for every once in a district. That's a really interesting idea. I think Iowa does the same thing and nesting can lead to, uh, you know, a more cohesive representation so that you'd have to house districts in every Senate district. I don't know if the Legislature would consider that in Indiana, but you could see a rationale that, uh, to study it certainly and learn from other states and see if we agree that that's the experience we want for Indiana. Martha. What about the criticism that it's not the map makers? They're just, uh, you're still dealing with Indiana geography and that folks and you know, and Wayne kind of gonna be different than folks in Vermillion. No Lake count is going to be different than the Clark County vice versa, and the maps that are drawn where the House was sitting maps. It's just what Indiana looks like. Well again, Uh, Indiana has a lot of counties. And if every county uh, just had it on Representative that might lead to one Interesting conclusion. But that is not the the way redistricting works..

"Statement I think gave him the ability to say I'm getting out because I now think there is a better candidate who's gotten in. Exactly, Uh, by the way, Speaking of primaries and nominating conventions, I've always been a firm believer that primaries, my friends are private political functions, and the taxpayers should not be footing the bill for for political parties primary, particularly if it's open primary. That's one thing but if it's a closed primary Like we have here in Indiana, where only Republicans and Democrats can vote in the respective areas, then that that that I haven't that I have an issue with. So why not just switch to, uh, either an open primary system or just go to a nominating convention altogether? Where the delegates excuse the governor the whole nine yards, let the political parties for the bill, and then they get to present their candidates to the voters. Yeah. You know, we still find some nominating conventions at the small level. So you find a small town where they may be doing on a nominating convention. It doesn't cost anybody something they rent a, You know, Park Pavilion someplace and maybe a couple 100. People show up and they take care of business to libertarians still do conventions. Obviously, a lot of people don't realize that you and I, as taxpayers are paying for the Republican and Democratic primaries that are held and when they find that out, they do get a little bit offended by that. I don't see us moving to conventions, in part because there are an awful lot of people who still want to have their say which suggests that but they don't want to be. You know, a good, loyal member of a political party. The way we're set up you you're supposed to be a good card carrying member of a of a party. If you're showing up to participate in their primary, we have plenty of people who are not. They do not participate in what would be considered their primary. They're trying to muck around on the other side, or, you know, maybe they're the minority party, so they want to make sure the least or best possible candidate from the other party gets the nomination. All those sorts of things happen. But part of the reality here is that the political parties love to see the voting histories and there are plenty of things in the code in terms of positions on boards and commissions that require partisan balance That suggests that maybe it would be very hard for us to go away from our current system. So The parties like to see the the labels and the voter files so that they can decide who to campaign to. We need it for code purposes for appointments to boards and commissions, etcetera. It's not likely to change any time soon. I don't think for those reasons, but I'm willing to bet if you actually sat down with voters across the state, and you had a conversation with them. They would be like you and they would say No, you go to convention. If it's a party function, you get your party people together. You pay for it or go One open, open primary and let me vote in the primary that matters for me, and also I think it's also interesting to my friend. Add to that list of why we have primaries, Uh, is to make sure that Republicans vote for Republicans and Democrats vote for Democrats. Nobody switches over because you can only be on the ballot if you voted in the primary to a certain degree. But if you go to another party's primary, then you can't make it. Yeah, You know, I love when it comes to come convention time and people end up getting themselves challenged in a primary because they want to be on the ballot as a delegate to their party convention And somebody says, Wait a minute. You voted in the wrong primary last election, and they get shocked by that. And then they get removed from the ballot. So they learned lesson the hard way. But you're right. Absolutely Another reason that we have the system we have. And also my friend. Speak of Eric Garden. Is it? Is it too early to be ready for governor yet? I would say that you know, you used to be that you waited until everybody was done running the year before you before you announce, so you weren't raising funds on their on their time, so to speak. I think we're pushing it a little bit. With the mayoral candidates. The 2023 candidates who are announcing I definitely think they're pushing it for those who are in 2024. All right, well, except we covered a lot of grounding in the US one to add my friend while we're while we're chatting here. No, just being so pleased to be talking with one of the media celebrities up here in my part of the state where you were featured in a news story about the Ricky to Holcomb lawsuit. Yeah, this enjoy of being a lawyer and a broadcaster. You gotta love it handed down to the mic down Center for Indiana politics and my friend. Thank you very much for being with us. Always going to chat with you, sir. My pleasure. Thanks for having me any down with Mike down, Senator Nana politics. You're listening to Indiana issues. I'm your host of door. Kim spots the editor, publisher of any politics that are well when it comes to Covid 19 in the past year. There's a lot of things that economists got right as well as it got wrong. He discussed that his ball, said economist Michael Hicks. We also talked about the economic impact of population demographic ships in Indiana. The change in the census, Mike. Thanks for joining us today. We do appreciate it. Good to be with you again. All right. So let's start with the one article that she wrote what economists got right and wrong about Covid. What was the impotence behind you writing that Well, you know, it's been a year now, since most of us completed some fairly major forecast. I think most economists think tank economist number of government economists, those of us who work in research centers. Who were publishing forecasts of Covid depth and its potential effect on taxes, employment, those sorts of things to be a good time to talk about what we got right and what we got wrong and why we might have been wrong or right in these areas. Well, let's start with the good news first. What exactly did you folks get right about Covid 19 over the past year? Wow. That's good news may be good news for us, but it may not be good for the economy. Uh, you know, I think most people understood that. The, um the retrenchment economic activity predated government intervention, so the recession formally began in February of 2020. And if you look at the high frequency data on, for example, consumer spending at grocery stores and restaurants and accommodations, all of those had flipped before the first government action. So here in Indiana, we were already in recession. And there was a 40% decline in fast foods or restaurant sales before the very first action, which was the Indianapolis restrictions on a number of people 250 people. And we were down almost 60% before government before Governor Holcomb took his first action in February. 23rd and you know, essentially, I think that means that economists who from the very beginning, said Look, the problem is the disease, the effect of the disease, household spending and production. Rather than government restrictions on economic activity, or what caused a downturn and we were right about that, and we were sadly very right about the depths. Of the March April and May job losses, which were, you know, essentially got us to near Great depression levels of joblessness in about 60 days instead of four months, and it took us way back from 29 to 1933..

"Lawmakers know, driving to drive into Indianapolis or driving home for Indianapolis. Or while they're here. This wasn't intended for a situation quite like we're seeing right now. Yes, And I think if you were to ask most folks that your description there is what they would say or you know, someone to not going to see you in a civil matter or criminal matter, not just about driving your car, but other issues and hold you hostage during the session that that's really kind of. I think most people would agree. That was the purpose of that. So this has has put a different wrinkle in it entirely. And you know is it Is it following the letter of the law? Or is the spirit of the law here? Something that we need to care more about. Always fun topic of discussion, And also to my friend is something else I thought was interesting and like that, and sort of watch out this back and forth. Is it sort of seems like sort of an underlying tone of a constitutional office versus statutorily created office. Yes, they hierarchy There is kind of fun, you know, And for those who are cheering for the underdog, they may just say You know what that attorney General might be statutory. But what the heck? Go ahead and stand up to the constitutional position and other people might be saying No, we we learn from elementary school on constitutions at the top of the hierarchy and you work your way down. Therefore, I'm going to Side with the governor in this race, and that's just for people who aren't interested in reading way too much code and the Constitution and court cases from the 19 seventies and 18 fifties and also speaking of which I love the sort of the back and forth between the lawyers the other day and just sort of little small things, for example. Said that an agency can't hire an attorney without the attorney. Just permissions like, well, the governor is not an agency, his constitutional office, etcetera, etcetera, and we actually those. Those subtle nuances become really important. When you look at the law. This is what attorneys get paid a lot of money in what judges get paid to help figure out we can see an example of this actually in the unemployment insurance benefits lawsuit that was filed recently. The argument is the Code says that the state is supposed to go after all benefits. Therefore, that would mean you can't stop the extra benefits at this time. The enhanced benefits at this time, But you know, if you read the rest of the code, you can make an argument. Now the governor is allowed to stop the enhanced benefits. So it's words matter. I mean, that's what we say in class all the time when people are writing things down when they're making arguments. You know how it is. If somebody says something, and it's inaccurate or embellishes, et cetera. We? As instructors often say to him. Words matter you, you can't do that. And they'll say, Well, you know what I meant? And we'll say, Did we really know what you meant? No. I just know what you said. Yeah, Exactly. Exactly. Our guest on the program is our good friend Andy Downs. The mic down Center for Indiana politics at Purdue University four. Dwayne. We're getting caught up on some of the big items. In the news this week here in the state of Indiana, and something else I thought was interesting was all the elected officials who are declaring their running for something. Uh, you've got Dan Elliot and Pete Ceb ready for treasure. Susan's Your worst game running for treasurer. They have all announced you got Diego Morales and Holly Sullivan. Is it too early? Yeah, well, the the answer is sadly, no, it's not When you look at what it takes to get a nomination now, obviously, nomination convention is different than the nomination in the primary election itself, But still there are an awful lot of people you have to communicate with. And when it's the primary, you know there are literally hundreds of thousands of voters you've got to communicate with. And that means raising money. That means finding time to get to 92 counties, or at least as many of them mistaken between now and Nominating process. If you're running for one of those positions that that's handled at the convention, you've got to realize those voters the convention goers in some respects, they're actually they're going to. They're going to grill you a lot more intensely than the average voter is, which means while you may have fewer voters to contact, you've got to spend more time with each one of them. And so is it too early? Well, yeah, I mean, we like So you have all that time to do your job. But given the amount of work that it takes to campaign properly, you do kind of have to get started on things a little early. I think what could happen is that people could be engaging in those activities. You know, going to party breakfasts and luncheons and evening time events, those sorts of things without needing to say they're running for office. They can be doing all the things that candidates do without needing to say I'm here as a candidate that would help to take some of the electoral politics. Out of out of the way, at least for a couple of years. But this is just the nature of what it takes to run a statewide campaign or, for that matter, even a citywide campaign. We have mayoral candidates announcing in Fort Wayne, and that race isn't until 23. Well, it's funny. You bring that up because I follow a lot of elected officials like you do on Social media. It's always interesting. I can tell who's running for something. Yeah, Yeah, well, and those who follow politics. You know, we can tell when they're running. They don't have to announce that they're running. But in some instances they're jumping in and saying they're running because they want to make sure that other people don't get in the race. They're trying to scare people also to speak, or they're trying to seem official enough that they managed. Get folks behind him, and, um it seemed like the the likely nominee. But what for me is interesting is to read their statements and and I asked myself have given themselves any room to then back out later on back out with some sort of dignity or to be able to say, Well, See, Look, I'm getting out now because I managed to change the nature of the race and I appreciate this other person who's now running in they're able to do it because that end up Being part of it as well. And I'd actually going to Eric Snowdon, who is going to be running for governor. His statement I think gave him the ability to say I'm getting out because I now think there is a better candidate who's gotten in. Exactly, Uh, by the way, Speaking of primaries and nominating conventions, I've always been a firm believer that primaries, my friends are private political functions, and the taxpayers should.

All right, Like so a lot of lot of ground education universe, our good friend and eight Kevin Teasley, the head of the Geo Foundation to greater education, Kevin, my friend. Thank you very much for being with us. Always going to talk to you, sir. Thanks a bunch for having me appreciate it. Seventies of the Geo Foundation. You're listening to Indian issues. I'm your host of Joachim Shahbazi, editor publisher of any politics at work well when it comes to crime in the capital city in Epa's mayor, John Hawkes said this week unveiled more than $3 million Initiative to fight crime. But critics say it's too little too late. Joining us now is one of those critics were excited. The president of the Fraternal Order of Police, Rick, thanks for being with us today. Thanks for having us so help us out here. Bob. The mayor's proposal spends about $3 million on on law enforcement on crime prevention. What's wrong with what the city is doing or what doesn't work and you guys opinion? Well, first and foremost, it isn't just a message from us. But it's a message from the rank and file police officers in the city of Indianapolis. And quite frankly, many of the residents that we are talking to throughout the neighborhoods are officers were shocked to learn of the proposal because we were seeing the mayor of proposing to Sprinkle thousands of dollars around the city. And another fledging Lee attempt. Uh, To respond to the record breaking pace of surging violence, and he had not even talk to police about this proposal. And so what we were struck by is that within it, it requires council approval, which means that before Our elected officials can even cross the street. The start line. Uh this proposal will take at least another month to get through the political process, So that means many more multiple lives will be lost in the interim and will be nearly midway through the summer surge within the surge. In Indianapolis. And so what we have pointed out is true to form and once again, our politicians are aiming at nothing, and they're hitting it every time. So what is it is anything on the program it in the in the mayor's proposed in particular that doesn't work for you folks. Or is there something else going on? Well, I think there's things in there that have long term, um, positions to consider. But what we are making clear is that people are dying today. Tonight. We just came off of a weekend again. Here in Indianapolis, where we have seen multi more people. Multiple more people lose their lives and suffer at the hands of violence. And so what we are saying is You got to take this in stages and you first have to triage situation. We have to stop the bleed and interrupt the cycle of violence that are occurring daily and nightly in our city. Once we do that, and get some breathing room, we can focus on these more long term perspectives. But none of that matters to the people who are being confronted, Uh today and what we always liken it to. As if someone It's critically injured from a car crash and they're laying on the road and they are bleeding out, and they also have a broken farm. It is as though we're going to treat the broken thumb before we focus on stopping the bleeding, and so for whatever we do for that broken bone, nothing matters. If the person still bleeds out and dies, that is exactly what's happening in our city. And instead what we see as politicians running around pontificating, Um we even saw the mayor points at the dance to the pandemic as an excuse for the surging violence. It's been actually skyrocketing in Indianapolis for multiple years. So what we said in response to that is let us be clear. Covid does not cause crime criminals do and to suggest otherwise. Which is what is occurring amongst the mayor, but also our council. Our City County Council and our Marion County prosecutor, which is serving to distract from a broken system of arrest and re arrest. Criminal justice. The revolving door if you will. One of the things that the mayor's office going to spend money on was sort of these domestic violence interrupter saying that Indianapolis in Marin County has seen a major increase and domestic violence that they contribute to covid two people kind of being sort of, you know, indoors all day and then the stress and pressure the whole nine yards. Um, could could you see from that perspective, covid bearing some responsibility? At least in part for our crime problem. Nonsense. What it is, is the fact that we have a system that is allowing low or no bonds, an automatic release for those interim steps of domestic violence related crimes. The reason why we are seeing a search. If that were the case, Abdul That would be a one off. That would be an outlier that we would just see in one year instead. What we have seen is this is a build up in a in a consistent increase and escalating trend lines in violence overall. Now, no doubt domestic violence. Homicides have increased. But here are the real symptoms of the matter. We have politicians who are supporting the system that says that if we arrest somebody tonight for Related crimes related to domestic violence, such as felony battery, criminal confinement, criminal recklessness with a weapon, intimidation, pointing a firearm residential entry stalking and strangulation, stalking its regulation or two of the highest mortality factors involved in domestic violence. But all those felonies I just named You get an automatic $500 cash bond in an automatic release without anyone even reviewing your criminal record, which means we have domestic violence. Offenders repeat offenders who are being arrested for a new allegation of Let's say strangulation, the highest lethality factor. And there is no consideration given to the criminal history, and instead they get an automatic release. And now now the likelihood of a domestic violence homicide has dramatically increased. And what that tells us is those are preventable. Yet our politicians are failing to interrupt that our guests the problem today is Rick Side of the head of the F O P Here in Indianapolis, married Connie. Uh, often, law enforcement response who planned the mayor presented last week there was spent about $3 million On crime prevention, Rick something else the mayor's office. The two was also, uh, spend money toward, uh, sort of police engagement, so to speak, more training, more identifying officers that may have an issue early on. Um, is that this sort of the time the place for that or help us out here? Absolutely not. And everybody in the neighborhood sees that for what it did. Is it merely pandering to party insiders? And in fact, it's blurring the lines of the public safety crisis that is going on with an administrative police personnel Early warning system. It's nonsensical, and so what we have said is Listen in all this talk of accountability. The police in our community are like are having the same question for the mayor, the council president, but mostly the public safety committee chair Leroy Robinson in the Marion County Prosecutor Ryan Mirrors that question is what happened to accountability for criminals. That is where our problem lies. And so we have said, is victims deserve better? The police officers who are risking their lives deserve better and quite frankly, Abdul, our communities of color that all these politicians talk about who are being disproportionately victimized by this violence. They deserve better excited with us on the program today. We're talking about crime and crime prevention here in the city of Annapolis, Rick. So help us out here. What do you What do you recommend? Uh, that the city do. I know you folks kind of allied sort of four proposals that you think we could implement immediately that would have an impact on crime and violence here in the city. Absolutely sir. Politicians consistently keep.

"These have generated many questions, and our goal is to answer them as thoroughly as we can so that school districts district's can make the choice that is best for them. I want to emphasize again that the Indiana Department of Health and the CDC still believe that 14 days is the safest quarantine option because the risk of spreading disease is very small when you return beyond that point. However, we want to make it possible for an asymptomatic individual to return after day 10 or on day eight if certain conditions are met. A primary condition is that the individual has not developed symptoms and that everyone remains mask in a classroom for the entire time. None of these changes are mandatory, and the policy decision is ultimately up to the school district. No matter what option you choose. Please remember that covert 19 is still out there and we need to stay alert. We have now seen more than 930 cases of the UK variant nationally across 34 states. Including 12. Now here in the state of Indiana. Several states are also reporting cases of South African and the Brazil variants all of these variants, arm or infectious. So even though you may be tired of hearing it, please keep wearing your mask. Practicing social distancing staying home. If you're sick and getting tested, get tested. If you have symptoms are daily testing rates have been declining, but there are still plenty of free tests available right now. Thank you. And with that, and you mentioned, you know, a week ago. Positive in terms of her positivity rate a month ago, going to January 11th. It's too tense today. So January 11th we were at 16 5. So today six point to the temple in 3% drop, but Again when you look at it over a month by month by month over the last 10 plus months There's a seven flow and we want to be in a good spot, not just today, but I'm on from now when March madness is upon us, but that will go to Dr Weaver. Dr Weaver. Thank you. We're very excited that we have over 50% over 65 to 7 year old Hoosiers, either scheduled or have received their first dose of vaccine in over 60% over 70 to 80 year olds. Continue to see these numbers slowly rise and we're happy that those Hoosiers who are the most vulnerable for hospitalization and death will be protected. As previously announced. Our plan remains to use data to inform our eligibility guidelines. As soon as possible. We plan to decrease the age of eligibility to include Hoosiers 60 to 65. This group includes approximately 432,000 people. Vaccinating Hoosiers, age 60 and older targets a population that accounts for 93% of the deaths here in Indiana. This week, the Indiana Vaccine Advisory Committee met to discuss next steps after we reach age 60. When we have enough vaccine and have vaccinated an appropriate portion of the 60 to 65 age group. We will then incrementally expand eligibility to two additional groups. Hoosiers Age 50 to 59 Hoosiers under age 50 who suffer from certain co morbidity ease in Indiana, people who are age 50 and older make up just over 35% of the population but account for 80% of covert hospitalizations and 97.6% of our deaths. Our data show that Hoosiers Age 50 to 59 or 30 times more likely to die of Copan 19, Then people age 22 29. They're four times more likely to be hospitalized than the 20 to 29 age group. By making Hoosiers age 50 and older eligible for vaccine. We're capturing 82% of the state's population. It suffers from any co morbidity that increases their risk. Nearly 858,000 Hoosiers are in their fifties. So expanding to this group will be a large undertaking that will require ample supplies of vaccine again. I urge you to please be patient while we wait for those Supplies to arrive. And the other group that will become eligible were targeting an estimated 51,000 Hoosiers with specific conditions that put them at increased risk of severe illness. These Hoosiers have 4 to 10 times increased risk of death if they were to be infected with Coben 19. Based on our own state and international data. Our group will include people receiving dialysis people with sickle cell disease people who have received a solid organ transplant. Individuals with down syndrome people who are actively receiving cancer treatment now or within the last three months, and people with active primary lung cancer or an act of human to logic cancer, such as lymphoma, leukemia and multiple myeloma. We will be working with medical providers who treat these individuals and the associations that serve these people with these conditions to identify the best way to reach out to these individuals directly when they're eligible.

"We're about 10 months into the covert 19 pandemic outbreak. How are Indiana's bars and restaurants holding up these days? We've lost. Probably a quarter. Um, which any given year you're probably gonna lose 10%. So you lost an additional 15% of establishment. Um, there's been a handful would've opened up, but I think that that's where you're really saying the decline. You're just not seeing new establishments open up. Just because there's not a lot of guarantees, and they're still restrictions and even within central Indiana. Several different municipalities have different rules on when you could be open. What capacity you could be at. Um obviously, Fisher's has to be closed 10 Marion County You have to be closed everybody out by midnight, but then you go up the Westfield and it's 3 A.m. so It's a little bit all over the place, but I mean, it's it's been a struggle, and you know if you look at the industries that have really been hurt, the most live entertainment is probably at the top of that list, but then point operators, which would be the jukeboxes and dart boards and pool tables, Those guys are probably down 90%. And that's largely because their customers which would be bars and restaurants they haven't been able to have in person customers so So probably bars and restaurants are in the top three. As far as just impact from covert. There might be a couple other industries and I'm I'm forgetting about, but it's still gonna be a struggle, and I think that You're gonna see a lot of people, especially their leases come up. Those people are probably going to choose to not renew the leases. Just because at least right now we're at least another six months, nine months away from being back to whatever normal is Like that. One of the other bigger things that you need to consider is people's habits have changed. People have stayed home or and I think that even when the all clear happens, and they're gonna say us, you know Cove it's under control. We can get back to being normal. People aren't gonna go back to being normal. They've They've gotten into habits and routines and for the barn restaurant industry that fully recover. People are gonna have to get back into the habit of going out and I don't think they're in that hat right now break. What can the government actually do to help bars and restaurants and taverns is it is what they've been doing so far..

"Who day after day, hour after hour have taken care of those afflicted. With this virus and to our law enforcement officials who put their lives on the line every day to serve, save and protect our streets. Into our churches, synagogues and mosques. Spiritual guidance. So that we can carry on with our lives without far worse disruption. And yet through it all. Hoosiers have risen to meet these unprecedented challenges. Realizing much more work is to be done in this historic moment of opportunity. Ladies and gentlemen, because of you. The state of our state is resilient and growing. Our foundation has held strong. I don't know how many other states in America have a triple a credit rating and are expected to finish the year with over $2 billion in reserves and that experience an all time record year of new job commitments last year. During a global pandemic like Indiana did. Keep me And because of the strong position we were in pre pandemic. And the immediate, aggressive and targeted Cove in 19 responses throughout Was able to include in my two years state budget proposal. That Indiana is now in the position. To restore many agency budgets. Increase K through 12 funding by $377 million. Restore higher education funding by $103 million and increase it in each of the next two years. Make new investments in our state parks and in our Indiana state fairgrounds that serves all 92 counties. Building, new State Police Land and Indiana National Guard Armory along with improvements in two others. And we're in a position to pay down $400 million on our biggest teacher pension debt. And in turn gives us more budget flexibility. Same is true for paying off the outstanding bonds on I 69 mortgages on three state hospitals. He's and gentlemen coming off a 2020. I'm convinced 2021 can be the best ever. So the central question before us all. Is. How can we seize this day? Thankfully. In Indiana. Our capabilities will be aided by our momentum for sure, but we must not slow down. In fact, we must accelerate and go, go, go. That starts with keeping our focus on the health and wealth of our people. No matter what phase of life or pathway they are on. I'm so proud of our state Department of Health. And the way they and our local partners have rolled out. The are shot Hoosiers vaccination plan. We've already scheduled or administer nearly 120,000 vaccinations to our 80 year and older population. And over 215,000. Hoosiers in the 70 to 79 age group..

"Those folks that air Citing those proceedings. Air in Washington, D C. I'm focused on the home front. Whitney. I'm not running for federal office and won't have an opinion. Until I would and don't hold your breath for me to do that. Obviously, we're going through a And during a global pandemic, and I realize we're seven days away. I guess the 20th of January would be the inauguration. On Dwight happens between now and then, as anyone's guess. I'm certainly I'm not calling any shots out there and don't want to be Having said that What I want to do is be focused here at home on the home front and making sure we're getting through this. Um As swiftly and safely I I don't want to just spend my time. Imagining. What it's going to be like to actually take off. My mask. And not have to put it back on or going to a restaurant and celebrating the fact that we're on the other side. Um, I don't want to. Just spend my time imagining. All the good that is in the pipeline and that light at the end of the tunnel. It's it's there Now. We don't have to imagine this. We know that vigilance and the combination of vigilance and the vaccine Is making a difference. And now we're in this position where we're starting to predict when that will really make a difference, But we know this is going to save lives. I've got my plate is full and any other gunner in the country ought to be focused on their job at hand. And We know what the results are. We're moving forward. We're already working with our federal and our local partners on making sure we get through this pandemic. The Of medical science is settled on what we need to, uh But I should say the medical experts have presented us with the information that's settled. We know what we need to do, and we're doing it. And there are so many indicators positive indicators out there. Both on the Health front and on the economic front. That just reinforces. Me and others to focus on the duty at hand here at home. We end with the Daily Journal. Good afternoon, Leanne. Yeah. The and you should be thanks for taking my question. Terrible, parched and from our reader. This free mother lived, but Can you? Me? No. You're bouncing around in and out. Real time technology issues right here. Full display. We'll circle back come back to Leanne. Brock Turner. With W F I u afternoon brought Good afternoon. Governor. Have a couple of, um everything. Mm hmm. Go ahead. Brock sorry about that. So question here for Dr Dan and then one for Governor Holcomb. Um, Dr Dan, I know you mentioned some nursing homes here in the state of Indiana and long term care facilities did not sign on to the federal vaccination program. I was just hoping you could go into a little more detail about the reasons that you're hearing that those facilities did not, And if you had a direct number of those facilities Yeah. I don't want to give an exact number cause I It may have changed. It was in the ballpark of 10 still nursing facilities that we're not in the federal partnership and when we'd reached out to them Some of them had actually established a partnership already with their local hospital and had the ability to do them through them. Some have their local pharmacies that they worked with, who thought that they would be able to provide that for them, only to find out later that that's not how the program was designed. But it would be this federal partnership and so By the time they realize that the date for signing up had passed, but it's a fairly small number and in the assisted living facility, it's also in the About 30 or so range that didn't have a plan so overall, the vast majority of the both skilled nursing assistant facilities are in that federal partnership. Thanks. And then just one quick question for Governor Holcomb in terms of moving forward in this vaccination process had there been anything any instances in which you, you know Would have liked things to run smoother it because it I mean, because I know Dr Box and others that sort of mentioned, you know, maybe a difficulty with getting the number of vaccines and those allocations changing. Is that there? Are there any Is there anything that you would point to that? You know, you would like to See move course smoothly. Uh, I'm a patient Individuals to I, of course, like perfection. But I understand you're what you're witnessing is this is not Cabbage Patch dolls or tickle me Elmo. You know that we're ordering. This is vaccinations to the tune of hundreds of thousands. Tens of thousands, not just tests and tracing and vaccinations occurring every single day with multiple partners that is evolving over time. And so I get From the From the What might seem to be the smallest issue like the size of a parking lot in some community out state, Indiana and how that affects accommodating Administering the vaccine. So we're all going through this together. Like it or not. We're all going through this together. And like I said, we're taking a fact. Based approach. Moving ourselves, not just forward, but through this to the other side. And we're seeking partnerships and building them and growing them, extending them on a day that day out basis, And so there are Um The only thing that I would want more of his inventory that zit and we will get it in the arms when we get it, and I'm Not just patient. I'm appreciative that we're in the position that we are right now with inside a year. Having multiple vaccinations. You want to add anything your your phone lights up every minute of every day. So I think Hoosiers were just so anxious Now that we're on to this point of hope, right? And now Hoosiers are anxious, and they just want to know when, when, when? And that's the hardest part. And so I think, Governor you and myself on. I know Lindsay. We always just try to be as transparent as possible that these are the facts as we know them, but Ask us in a couple of hours, and they may be totally different, so we really have to drop adopted that approach..

"Like Galileo. I am not minded to be a judge in these matters. We need more judges like Judge Galileo today, judges who will throw stupid frivolous lawsuits and of court. Look to it yourselves. I'm not minded to be a judge in these matters, however. One can't help but note that Galileo came up on the short end of the stick here. Paul was about to speak when Galileo said, I am not minded to be a judge in these matters. What he said applied to Paul also He was not minded to hear the matters that Paul had to say. That was a mistake to tell Paul to shut up. All was about to say something that Galileo needed to hear. And he did missed his greatest opportunity. History records that both galley old and his brother is famous Roman by the name of Seneca later on, both of them committed suicide. L Eo cared for none of these things. Galileo did not care for the proposition of eternal life. Galileo did not care for the propagation of the Church of Christ. Galileo did not care for the proclamation of the word of God. Many belonged to the galley. Oh, club today they care for none of these things pass a car on the highway. 3. FT is all that separates you from a head on collision. You are 3 ft. From being able to hear the Angels sing or from hearing the shrieks and the cries of the Damned. Galileo cared for none of these things. Many, like Galileo have no concern for the ongoing of the church. Either. All you have to do to close the church for one month during the year is the miss four times during the year without Excuse. Without reason. And as far as you are concerned, the church is closed eight Mrs during the year and by your vote. Services are canceled for two months during the year. This is a terrible responsibility when you think of it. But I don't expect it to mean too much to most of you. Because they belong to the galley. Oh club. They care for. None of these things may like Galileo are not concerned about the proclamation off the word of God. What Paul or Peter, or any of the inspired man had to say means nothing. It is what my delamination teachers what my preacher says what the majority think is right. Inspired men don't count. They are indifferent to their testimony. There's old illustration that says it well, someone ask a woman one time what she believed. She said. I believe what my church believes When asked what her church believed. She said she the church believe what she believed. She was asked what her church and she believed, and her enlightening reply was We both believe the same thing. Then we're introduced to a very unusual man here in the Corinthian story. His name was a palace. He is described as an eloquent man who was mighty in the Scriptures. He spoke fervently the word of God. He was what we would call today. A fiery type creature. Someone asked Alexander Camel one time what course they could take in college to learn eloquence. His reply, Watts to the effect that there is no course that teaches it. You either have it or you don't. Those who have eloquence and no learning may acquire learning, But those who have learning and no eloquence can never require eloquence. Apollo's was a rare kind of preacher. He was a scholar mighty in the Scriptures. But he was also eloquent. However, there was something a palace with all of his learning eloquence did not know. Pollo spoke accurately the things concerning Jesus, knowing only the baptism of John the Baptist. He did not understand that the baptism of John the Baptist was obsolete. No and void Angular and Priscilla taught him the way of the Lord more accurately. Then he was baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Aquila may not have had the eloquence of a palace, but he and his wife, Priscilla, could instruct the palace. After AC Willow was straightened out on baptism he desired to go to current. The Brethren encouraged him and give him his church letter. They wrote letters under the disciples to receive him. They did, and he helped them much that had believed through grace. He powerful ley computed the Jews and that publicly proving by the scriptures that Jesus was the Christ. There are people in many congregations who do not understand the purpose of baptism. Peter informs us about the purpose when he said in his great sermon, one of their Pentecost The day of the church began. Here it is. Repent ye and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ. Confirmation of sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Leave those words of Peter before you without comment. Someone told me of a church that had taken a great number of people into their church who had been immersed and who actually thought they were saved before Peter said they were forgiven. Says the preacher did not want to risk losing any members. He said nothing about it. He left them live on in ignorance. This philosophy. Woz let them find out the truth for themselves. That was another case of truth being sacrificed on the altar of security. Now that Paul has left current Apollo's come to serve in his place in that city. Palace was a popular preacher. All cell of him. I planted a palace watered, but God gave the increase. Later on. The Corinthians tried to start some denominations, Son said. I am of Paul and I have a palace and I have syphilis and I have Christ. I suppose there were some that call themselves Pollen. Ian's. Some were called Appaloosa. Ian's Somewhere Kalsa fastens. In reply to this travesty of division in the body of Christ, Paul said, this Christ divided. Was Paul crucified for you, or were you baptized in the name of Paul? He could. Just as well have said, is Christ divided off, Luther crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Luther? Or again. He could just as well have said, is Christ divided? Or was John the Baptist crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of John? And don't forget. There were some who said they were of Christ. Sometimes it is possible to make a denomination out of that name. Also, there are around 25 or 30, different groups that call themselves Church of Christ, and many of them will not associate with each other. In many cases, the Church of Christ has become a denomination. Everyone agrees that we should have unity among all who love and follow Jesus Christ. Many preachers who are far more able than I Have never been able to cut that Gordian knot of division. So the only recourse I have is to stay with Paul. I beseech you, brethren. Through the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. That you all speak the same thing and that there be no divisions among you, but they'd be perfect together in the same mind and in the same judgment and that ladies and gentlemen, Is the Corinthian story. Perhaps we could close with the words we started a while ago. I know your soul that is steeped in sin that no man's art can cure. Down or name a name. A name that commitment soul off your I know a life that is lost to God beyond bound down by things of earth, but on the one a my name, a name that can bring that soul new birth. I know of lands of a sucker, Shame of heart that fade entire Man. Your name our name, a name? Consent those lands. On fire. Ladies and gentlemen, you've been listening to another God is just a prayer away radio broadcast brought to you each week at the same time, but verses of Christ.

The other big impact is the federal assistance, the federal assistance. Um, did spur consumer spending and that resulted in enhanced our greater sales tax.
