I heard Jason whitlock Sam Tucker, Carlson show last night. It's almost too good to be true, or at least it has been so far. And that is how I feel.

The Progressive Case for Bitcoin With Jason Maier
"All right, Jason, welcome to the breakdown. How are you doing, sir? Great. Thank you for having me. I'm looking forward to it. Yeah, me too. I mean, so this is a topic that I think more and more people are talking about it. I think it's super important. I think one of the strengths of Bitcoin is its nonpartisan nature, or it's maybe a better way to put it as a distraction to lots of different types of people for lots of different types of reasons. And I'm glad that people are starting to have that discussion. So I'm really looking forward to the conversation, but before we dive into the substantive things, tell us a little bit about yourself and what you do and how you got interested in Bitcoin in the first place. Yeah, it's a great question. So I am a math teacher. I teach at a private boarding school I teach high school math and I do a little bit of computer science also. And that was sort of the passion of what I wanted to do since I was a little kid. And in a lot of ways, I was living the dream, just teaching math and interacting with students and having a lot of fun. A buddy of mine got me into Bitcoin. He was just like, hey, what are you doing with your stimulus check? And you should go buy some Bitcoin with it. Of course I'd heard about Bitcoin. I had sort of my own false start years before. But as soon as that happened, I said, okay, I'll think about it, and I bought $20 worth of Bitcoin and I proceeded to just dive in. I said, well, now I'm in, I need to learn more about it. And of course, like many other people, the more you learn, the more you want to learn. So that's sort of the introduction, just a good friend of mine, who's the smartest person that I know, and also the weirdest person that I know is like, you should be buying Bitcoin. And I just started with that like $20 purchase. And it's just gone from there. So I went into the rabbit hole. I really approached it originally from a math and computer science angle. I want to know what kind of problems this is solving. And how it works. You know, I got hooked. I got a conviction for it from there.
Fresh update on "jason" discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
"Year, and whatever happened in the front office there, which we still don't know. And then he was going to get the next job and then didn't get the next job. The Celtics quietly have been great, but they have no pulse nationally. It's like, what can you talk about with the NBA? Well, you always can talk about the Lakers because it's LeBron. And I understand that, but still there are other stories out there that people aren't even covering. John Moran is going to get some attention. Zion is played pretty well. Luca, the Greek freak, but it doesn't feel like any of those names, teams, resonate, nationally. It still comes back to this is a league that has been hinging on publicity through the Lakers. But the Lakers will be on national TV and for no reason other than they're the Lakers. Yeah, Paul. The Celtics are interesting because you never think of Jason Tatum and jaylen Brown is great three point shooters. They're good. They both shoot 35%. But then their bench guys, like Al Horford's shooting 50% from three. Malcolm Brogdon, 47% Derek white, 45, and they were in the finals last year. They seem to be improving. The emea DOCA story is nuts about there's nothing new on it. You know, he lost jobs in two months and where's the rest of the baggage? You know, when people say, well, what do you do with this roster with the Lakers? LeBron signed that two year 97 $1 million contract extension. And what are you going to do? Trade Anthony Davis. I would have. I would have done that a long time ago if I could have. But he's playing well maybe now's the time you trading because he's playing well. And he's healthy for the most part. But would I bank on Anthony Davis? Given me 75 games this year, 70 games this year, 65 games this year, probably not. Just feels like. That's Anthony Davis being Anthony Davis. Yeah, more. Is there a team in the NBA that we should all really be paying attention to right now? Well, Boston. But no, you're just not going to. Right. I mean, Boston is 17 and four. Yes, you know, what you said, like you would have traded Anthony Davis a long time ago. If you could have, and I was like, yeah, that totally makes sense.
Packed Black Friday sports schedule
"AP sports I'm Tom Miriam. On Black Friday, the NBA and NHL were as busy as the shopping malls. 14 NBA games and 13 on the ice were played the day after both leagues were off for Thanksgiving. The Celtics added to their league leading record by beating searching Sacramento as Jason Tatum scored 30 with help from the Boston bench. I think when we might have been down for the end of the half of ten, he knows because of those guys came in and just changed the momentum. The bucks kept pace by beating the Cavaliers thanks largely to a 35, ten third quarter in which Bobby port has played a key role. Felt good for us overall as a basketball team, because it felt like we was playing books, basketball, for a chance. Victories also for the Lakers heat suns, warriors, nuggets, grizzly sixers pacers, rockets, thunder hornets, and the trailblazers in overtime over the Knicks. NHL, the bruins became the first team to win its first 12 home games in the season, as they beat the hurricanes three to two in overtime on David pasternak's gold. Big win for us, obviously, and coming from behind, you know, after Thanksgiving, the game is never easy, so it's good with. The devil's after having their 13 game win streak snap bounced back with a three one win in Buffalo. Other winners, the capitals penguins islanders red wings, Maple Leafs Canadians kraken jets, senators kings and lightning, with Braden points scoring too early goals. I think both teams were into it right away. It was nice to get a couple goals for us early. Pretty good jump on the game. I thought it was a fun game. World Cup soccer, the United States finished in a scoreless tie with England as coach Greg berhalter's young team had the better scoring chances. Overall, pleased with the performance of the group, most importantly, the belief of the group, because that never wavered. The U.S. now must be to ran on Tuesday to advance to the knockout round. Plenty of college action on Black Friday, football winners included four ranked teams tulane, Florida state UCLA and Texas, and basketball top ranked North Carolina lost a wire with state.

Jason schick, the general manager for U.S. public sector at confluent, highlights a civilian agency use case to show the impact of data in motion. One of my favorite use cases right now is a civilian agency. They are working to modernize their claims processing. And that requires a whole lot of steps. Both internally and checking on data from other government agencies to determine eligibility of the applicant. And so by modernizing and sharing that data in near real-time way, they're able to offer a much better experience to the applicant and they're able to act a lot faster. So when there are fraudulent applications, they can take action. They can identify it and take action a lot faster.

Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles Are 'Still Friends' After Break Up
"Speaking of annoying women, Harry Styles is back on the market ladies, Olivia Wilde, has dropped him or he dropped her, we don't really know. It was two years of them putting on a show PDAs, the movie don't worry, darling, all the controversy, there was a questionable timeline. Jason Sudeikis apparently threw himself under a car when he found out she was going to give him some salad recipe of hers. Florence Pugh was in the movie, was apparently having a situational Harry Styles before Olivier showed up and she took them away. That made her pissed off. The movie shit I saw it, all we did was talk about it for two months, which was the most PR any movies ever gotten. But their publishers wanted to know there's still friends. Despite their split. There's no bad blood between them. Harry didn't dump Olivia or vice versa. That's one of their well turned well trained sources said to the media. This is the longest relationship Harry has ever had, so clearly they have a special bond. You know what? Harry's a little boy, okay? He got to bang a movie star. Of course, he wasn't going to pass that up. But let's call it what it was. There's a couple of celebrities passing through the night.
Fresh update on "jason" discussed on The Crossover NBA Show with Chris Mannix
"So if we were just doing this as a projected forward and this is where we stand on April 1st, I'm sitting here trying to drill down on Tatum versus Giannis and trying to figure out who's got the edge on one of the advanced stats on off whatever it may be. You start to factor in other things that have happened over the course of the season and how they responded in tougher moments, all that stuff. So that's where I would be if this were April 1st. But it's November 28th and I'm going to just do whatever I want. Now look, Steph cart can get right back to the top of my ballot at least because the warriors are starting to trend in the right direction. Klay Thompson is getting his game together. They're just bludgeoning teams offensively right now. So I think if they get back into the mix in that top three in the Western Conference, which is more likely than not given their roster, he's gonna make a strong case for himself. But right now, best player on the best team putting up big numbers, I lean towards Jason Tatum. Hey, I'm JJ Redick, hosted the

Fresh update on "jason" discussed on SGGQA Podcast – SomeGadgetGuy
"Oh, Jason verino. It would be really cool if this sensor supported four K one 20, because that is one of the other things that my sim card is in a Sony, and the main sensor on the Sony is not as nice as the main sensor on that. Xiaomi, but I do love me shooting videos of my daughter running around parks and stuff. Four K one 20 because the slow motion is just brilliant. Again, so many, so many fun things. Dagon one. I mean, I'm going to head over to your house right now. He says, hey, I just bought the vivo X and ID pro plus 12 gig 512 gigs of storage. Are you excited to get it? Yeah, I'm fighting hard. I'm going to reach out and I'm not going to be dignified about it, but I am going to reach out to some of my PR contacts and say, so for the international release, am I going to be able to play? So I really like the vivos. But yeah, I'm not pulling the trigger today because I still have a ton of work that I need to finish up, but man the vivo X 90 is so on my radar. I'm very anxious to play with that phone. Gary the fireman, yeah, the pixel 6 a is insane at two 99. From doulos, the dualist, the prophet, I just bought LumaFusion this past weekend because of Juan's glowing reviews. Play with it, man. It is so much fun. You can shoot all of this incredible stuff and edit it directly in that moment. I did that little zoo trip. My daughter for Halloween. She's running around. She was in a costume. She was playing at the zoo, and every little clip, as soon as I was done shooting that clip, I could drop it into a video editing timeline. It was the thing I was holding up. If I had shot any of that from this camera, I would have had to have waited until I got home, transferred the memory card. It would have been hours after the fact I'd have to look through all the footage, think like, oh, do I want this clip? Do I want that clip? I've got to put them all together. That's not a thing when you edit from your phone. You edit from your phone and you can immediately construct your final family project in the moment that you're shooting it. Nothing like that has ever existed before. This kind of mobile compute power. It's incredible. So you just put together a couple little project files, keep a couple little templates, and you can so quickly staple something together, throw some music on it, finish the render. And before you've left the zoo, you have this perfect little family memory of hanging out. You can immediately go to share that with your family and friends. And it's awesome. It's so good. From Dave burns, how does LumaFusion work in desktop modes? It's working pretty well. It formats better than PowerDirector was formatting. There are still some sticky bits. I feel like they're definitely still needs to be some polish on Android for your track height. So on iOS, you can zoom laterally to zoom into the video that you're working on, but you can also zoom vertically to make individual tracks larger so that you can get a kind of a clearer idea of where you're putting your edits. We don't have that on Android. You don't have that sort of vertical pinch move. Some things like that would definitely help when you switch to a proper 16 by 9 view through a desktop mode. Actually resizing the windows and sort of working in PowerDirector on even the really crappy Android desktop mode
Jason Whitlock: I'm Not Jumping Ship From Supporting Trump
"Face it. People are jumping off the Trump train. Don't shoot the messenger. I'm telling you as an observer, what I'm hearing, what I'm experiencing, what I'm getting from other people. But let's me first share with you some pretty wise words from a wise man named Jason whitlock. I'm looking at Trump. They're trying to put this man in jail, they've done everything possible. The establishment on the right and the left have done everything they can to destroy this man. I'm not jumping ship. Not yet. I need some more evidence, some more proof. I need someone that's willing to take on the establishment. The right and the left establishment. Because we got here to this point because of this, this is what the establishment wants. They're all getting rich with insider trading. I don't see many of them objecting in a real way to what's really going on. I want to have a conversation with Josh Holly, one of our senators from Missouri from Kansas City, known him for a long time. I need someone to help me make sense of what we've just seen and what we've just witnessed before I jump ship on Donald Trump and the maga movement. Now, let me state the obvious. He's not fully on board because the way he characterizes it. He's ready to jump ship. He's just not quite there yet. I mean, isn't that what you took away from that?

Jason Pye Shares His Take on the Warnock-Walker Race in Georgia
"Real quickly, your take on the walker Warnock libertarian, why do you say, I mean, Warnock, I mean, there's been a lot of arguments, but he can't get over 50. Walk right and get over 50. You know, you know, you can sort of say, well, walker's had these other issues, but Warnock's had some other issues, but walker, he's also spent a $100 million using income, but any ideas? Ultimately, on that race, I think if it's a runoff, if it goes to a runoff, which I don't know where I come down on it, it will or not. But if the consensus month behind the behind the closed door consensus is beginning more and more on the Republican little walker camp and the Warnock camp, I've had some contact sort of endometriosis about they are now setting aside substantial thought to a runoff. Interesting. If it goes to a runoff, you know, I'm going to give it to walker. I think he ultimately wins. But when someone like chase Oliver, chase, and this is part of being involved in a third party and having a third party background because I was back in 2000 6, I was 2005, 2006. I was state party chairman for the Libertarian Party in Georgia. At the age of 25 years old, I don't recommend that to anyone by the way. With Chase Oliver, he says things from a perspective that I agree with. On both markets and social issues because Chase is the first gay Republican Senate nominee in Georgia history. And he brings that interesting perspective, which made scare off a lot of conservatives. And I disagree, but I respect it. But with Warnock, I think the biggest problem he's facing is. I'm a George bulldogs fan. I don't have my Georgia bulldog. I'm not in my office, so I don't have much. All my stuff. I got my Kirby smart ball there. There we go. Yeah, I'm so jealous. So with walker, I respect him and I thought he was a great running back for UGA. I mean, prior to the last national to the championship, they just won. The last championship they won before that was the year I was born.
Why Jason Pye Identifies as a 'Classical Liberal'
"Preface this conversation by saying, you know, Doug, you said a buzzword earlier that I was trying to get a word in, but you mentioned the term classical liberal. And that's largely how I identify my philosophical views these days is classical liberal, which is not modern liberalism, is actually more in tune and more in line with what the founding fathers believe and so I would refer to myself as a classical liberal. We don't have everybody heading to Wikipedia on this. Yes, we are. But which the modern day, the classical liberal and libertarian have been somewhat intertwined. I am not, I am no longer a member of the Libertarian Party. For precisely this reason. And it's because the Libertarian Party does not take itself seriously. And I'll get to just give me one to indulge me for a second here. Okay. There are two very good libertarian candidates who are running. And if I were still a registered voter in Georgia, I would vote for them. And one of those is Chase Oliver, who is the nominee for U.S. Senate. And the other one's Ryan Graham, who's running through lieutenant governor. Both very good guys, both very smart guys who are talking about issues from a classical liberal libertarian perspective that I tend to agree with. Shane hazel should not be in this race. If he had any dignity, he would drop out. And the reason reason for that is, is be precisely the things you said. He's belligerent. He says random stuff. He is not a serious candidate if his goal is to throw this into a runoff, then why are you running? And you're right. It's going to cost taxpayers in Georgia millions of dollars statewide. Because in these counties, some of these small counties who are already facing budget crunches are going to have to find the money to do a runoff and this is fundamentally my issue with libertarian candidates. They don't run to win. And because they can't win. And
Doug Sits Down With Jason Pye to Discuss the EQUAL ACT
"Equal act for those or not. And it's got to get done in some form. Some shape form or fashion, it's got to get done and I think that's going to be a key. Your hopes, I know you like me and we're going to be probably working on this some more together. But NDA thinks a great place for it or a CR would be a great place for it if we could get it in. I'm concerned that I'm very concerned that Republicans are going to block the ability to do a CR, especially if they take the house and definitely if they take the Senate, which means that for me in the military is problematic because again, military sort of at a standstill when you do a CR. It's just not there. And the normal stuff gets done. Where do we see what we're seeing right now with equal? Well, I think the play right now that we've been working on and you're right. There are two there are going to be a couple of different pieces of legislation. Maybe as many as four that come to the floor during the lame duck session. Two of those are not ideal places for this. The other two are. One of those is the omnibus, which or CR. And I really dug, I think you're right, I think it depends entirely on what the outcome of the election is. If Republicans take back the house, which is likely and they take the Senate, which is, I think it's less likely. I'm not saying it's unlikely it's less likely. I think we're looking at a CR that kicks government funding in February or March. But if we get an omnibus, yes, it's a place it's a place to put it because, you know, from your time in Congress and in the house, that they put all kinds of random stuff in the omnibus that sometimes has not even gone through regular order committee.

"A clear favorite. And man, if you could just sign me up for that on a regular basis. Now I know there's only so many great mistakes. It was funny. There was so small fields and some of the great stakes races are just stakes races in general. And I saw that conversation come up about we need less graded stakes races are less stakes races and I hadn't really participated in that debate much over the years. But just on a surface level, it seems like the rationale is obviously those are races to be prized and they're what owners point towards and want to win. There's value in them monetarily. There's value in them instead or breeding, you know, they're the ones that mean the most. But if there is a lot of them and there's only so many horses at that level, it allows everybody to kind of avoid each other and pick and choose and hopefully get their grade three win or get their grade to win or what have you. And so I'm assuming that's the argument and you know, as I said a couple of weeks ago we talked about the field size and stakes races. I watched these race from the 60s, 70s and 80s and I see small stakes various fields in those videos too, not as much obviously. I'm not denying the field sizes down. But it does, I mean, it makes sense to me the idea of kind of minimizing great things. Now I know tracks don't want to hear that because those events, especially for smaller tracks. Like, you know, I think it was a really tough thing for emerald downs to lose the long acres mile grading. It deserved to be graded. Still, you know, the last few additions have not been great. There was a big field last year, right? But two years ago, there were the year Barkley one, it was like a 5 horse field and it was just all the local horses. And that addition was really tough to label as a grade three. And I say this is somebody who wants the mild to be great, and I want the best femoral downs all the time. But, you know, I mean, that's a race that they have to have that great in the sense that it's just their marquee thing and it's a very important thing. But there's a lot of grade threes that these bigger tracks, you know, they're just, to me, are not all that interesting. And maybe it is better to take away a gradient or something. I don't know. I don't know. Like I said, I feel like that's like a thing that folks more on the horseman side of things. Or the management side of things would be able to talk about because I'm not really on either of those sides of things, but I'll tell you what, why don't we take a quick timeout since we're already kind of whizzing through here and I have only talked about one race. We'll come back, we'll do more of our weekend recap and it'll be fun, fun Monday shows. We kick off Kentucky Derby week. Yeah, it's Derby week.

"Because the second and the fourth leg seem to be where I think most people are going to go narrow. I'm inclined to try to find prices in those two legs just by default and if I'm logical and the other three, but I'm right in those ones. I'm definitely against the 5 in the second leg and so you can put him in the winner's circle, but I was struggling with being against the ten in the fourth leg, and so maybe my single just is that one and go logicals the other legs. I don't know. Again, I'm not, I don't want to talk about this as a ticket constructing thing, but more I just want to kind of keep flushing out my thoughts and hopefully that helps you guys with just kind of thinking of it. Because, you know, like I said, so many people just, okay, well, I like this one, this one, this one. Let's go on to the next one. But I want to think a little more. Not a lot more, but a little more higher education, so to speak talking about this stuff. And so really think about the layout of the sequence and how to maybe approach it from that sense. Because I think a lot of us can go through the card and kind of handicap and pick the logicals, right? That part's kind of easy. And like I said, I'm always the first to admit handicapping is one of my great weaknesses. I'm not good at it. You know, I see a lot of the obvious stuff on the circuits. I follow, I think I have a little bit better opinion and more contrarian good opinion because I'm seeing the races every day. I can't follow every circuit. I just can't do it. I don't think anybody can, but let alone people that got multiple jobs. And so where I want to try to provide some insight is maybe just again having conversations about how to look at a sequence where to kind of gauge a lot of the public's going to go and my guess would be that it would be a sequence where people are going to go two to three to four deep in that first leg because it's probably with the logicals like the 6 and the 8, they're they certainly look like the ones, even though they're not great because it's a bit of a weak race. But I think that second race, a lot of people will make a stand in there with that 5 horse. I think it's a good tourist to try to beat. But could he win, of course? Third race, I think, is, again, a lot of people are going to spread, but I really do think the 6 in the ten and maybe the three are the ones, but like I said, if the morning line sticks, they're all in that 9 to two 5 to one kind of range. And then do you beat the ten horse in the fourth race? And then what do you do in the 5th? Because the 5th, I do think it's tough because there are multiple ways to go and you're going to and that's, as I said, you're not getting any toad information before you put in this ticket. You don't know if any of those firsts are going to get bet really heavy. And that's a part of the puzzle, I suppose, but anyways, well, let's take a quick break. We come back more of our horse player Thursday. It's JB horse racing podcast brought to you by to inspires. This is the Jason beam horse racing podcast, brought to you by twin fires.

"I mean, it's endless. I mean, I'm trying to think of more. But off the top of my head, it's just it's every year. The guys that are not going to be the greats become better than the ones that aren't, and it's just these people get super convinced and their convictions and I just find it funny because it's just there's so much that we don't know and that goes into this stuff. And even though kuipers of the world are reaching for a lot of the information they have, it's like trying to predict a two year old maybe special weight. There's angles. So you're going to be surprised sometimes. Oh, man. I mean, yeah, I feel like racing people we could appreciate that, because how many times have we walked into a race? Like I frosted as no shot in the Met mile this year. That was me walking around Emeril telling everybody was the worst two to one shot of all time. I tell you what I left emerald faster than frosted ran that day for sure. I didn't like them. Well, and the thing was, it's like, it's one thing to get beat and it's another thing when the horse is 12 in front with at the 8th pole and you're just like, yeah, had that one clock. Yeah, I mean, between that and more spirit and the Met mile for a couple of years there, I definitely not only was beat trying to beat the chalk, but embarrassed. That happens, pal. All right, chef, we'll catch up to you next week. I have a good weekend and getting close to that Churchill, November meet. Yeah, very close couple of weeks away.

"And so i just. I really found it. Fascinating to put the odds down in that cold kind of way and just really dissect the different pathways. And how they can do now if he gets one of his price horses in the leg you know. Then he's he's kind of sitting on a good enough. He gets a fifteen hundred ten one that first leg other than that fourth late which i said is kind of the problem leg because ninety seven percent of the time. He's losing your washing that leg. He he's he's looking okay and you can kind of wash in a leg and still be okay. But you're relying on longshot. Things to happen. You know. Usually when i want something kinda hurdle is to happen when i say hurdle show the inside the pylons rule of of creating hurdles for yourself because that's usually where you're separators are I wanna be. If i win that race. I wanted to make a big jump in odds and equity built. Not if one of my good ones wins. I i'm going to be you know you. You just don't want to be dependent on if if you you know when you win that leg you wanted to really matter and so again i just thought it was a really kind of interesting tool to look at and i think something i would. I would start doing more often just literally cold writing down the odds of the horses in your as your ticket looks and how would i. How would i adjust. How does it look in. General what is my you know my investment looking at if various things happen and so anyway that was I i thought it was a real interesting thing. He brought up. And like i said i wanted to give it a little bit of a plug since he was so kind to share with me and and the the temple on his website is is kind of empty for you to figure out it says you know your picks then the track odds and then your odds which i can't remember i think he might already had that That way before. I talked with him but you can enter the takeout and all that kind of stuff. But i think just even if you're interested in the expected payoff and all that stuff great but if you're just interested in i think laying it out. I think it's a good tool as well and so It really like i said it. It made it so much easier in my opinion to kind of go through and You know just pick apart the ticket a little bit and you know like i said. I don't even know that was a real ticket. I think he was just using. It was just an example but to me it was a it was a good way to lay it out because i think so often. We just laid out with the numbers. We kind of assume in our head. You know where we're at in terms of what the ticket looks like. But i think it was good to get it down there on paper and also possibly help you know. I mean if you if you're three deep in the first leg singled in the second leg and then you look you like okay. I'm four by five by five these last three legs. And they're all kind of three to one seventy two four five to one. Basically they're all equity evens are washes. You know maybe you think well let me just look at what the doubles are paying with these three into my single or you know. Oh wow these you know. I was going to vest one hundred dollars in the whole sequence but if i just do thirty dollars doubles i'd make probably more than that fifty pick five so i just think it's a good reflector we. I think a lot of us very stuck in our habits of how we structure and bet and think of things. So i just i thought it was a good little exercise so i hope i hope that's something you guys Find some benefit in Thinking about in in looking at why. Don't we take a quick break. And i do want to talk a little bit about some stuff come up. Churchill this weekend in terms of handicapping side of things. So it's horse player. Thursday it's jason horseracing.

"I'm making money off of that. So that's that's one model that exists in the world there are there are some percentage of the of the syndicates that exist in the world. That do it exactly that way. The next the next type of model that you'll see is is someone Does the same thing they buy horse and there there's no markup but what they do is they charge a larger monthly fees to sort of cover their expenses and Along the way but they'll they'll they'll say there's no markup on the worst that's one the second model the third model that you'll generally run into is is someone who takes The same same kind of approach. They by horse they syndicated out. They cut it up in the pieces and they sell it and They will do both of what i just described. They will up charge the horse they will up. Charge the monthly fees and they'll roll it into a number and And so and then as as you jason as you know very well the cost of a horse most of the time and training the cost. The horse is not. The busy thinks this. It's the ongoing numbers that really get ownership and so i would say ninety percent of the syndicates in the world If you if you if they have a horse they're gonna send you monthly or quarterly bills right there. You know for the upkeep the training and the vets and all the things that go into having a horse so that's that's generally what you'll see. I would say ninety percent of the syndicates. Work that way and if you're in that sort of second buck in some people will slip in extra expenses in there and sometimes it's it's transparent sometimes. It's not that there. That's how they're making their margins to cover their expenses of running the syndicate There's another group of of people who take that same approach by a horse say syndicated out and they take an estimated. Let's say one year or two years or three years of expenses and and they roll it into the cost of the horse a fund. And then they'll say you have no ongoing bills after because while they've taken all of the expenses and they've moved to forward And then you pay one number and you're done with it so Those are the general buckets that you'll see of syndication and then you know from you've got everybody who people who let you buy one one hundredth of a percent. Of course all the way up to people who force you to buy five or ten percent. Because they don't want to deal with you know many different owners right. You know 'cause it isn't an administrative nightmare officer deal with with you gotta build technology and it's one of the advantages was sobbing had is will you know. I have a thirty five person software company on staff. So i can just build the technology i need to build which is what we did so but that's not everybody you know not your average trainer or a guy who's trying to run a syndicate out there you know on paper and spreadsheets and email is going be able to do that i it seems to me a big part of because obviously partnerships are a great avenue for people to get involved with ownership if it is something they want but to me it seems like homework is kind of a necessity of of doing that and i mean i guess that's kind of true investment right. I think it's true of anything. And you use the word investment. We are very very careful. Never tell anybody that this is an investment one. That's another that's another aspect of this too right like a lot of a lot of people i've talked to and i've talked to guys own partnerships. Some of the big ones and they've said that you know they they're pretty upfront about that. Look this is not a business. You're gonna make much money at all but almost more of a. I don't wanna use the word club but it's you know as you said go. I interrupted you. But because i think we're going to the same place. Yeah i mean the the key is don't call it. And and here's a at least give you some of my red flags syndicate if you see if you visit a syndicate website or you speak to a syndicate if you're out there and you're trying to join one which i advocate that you should if you're new to the ownership game if you see or hear the word investments run if you say racing operation and you see or hear the word investments run the other way. Because you're you're you're dealing with someone who's not thinking of this correctly And i guarantee you. There's something there that's probably should be a red flag. So that's that's one piece. The second piece is ask questions around the things that i just brought up The cost of the horses. This how much did you pay for. These are very valid question. Exactly how much did you pay. Exactly how much is being ongoing training. How much of that doing training is going into your count some to actually manage the syndicate. These are all legitimate questions. No different than if you were buying a car. A car is a great example. It's better example than calling investment because except in the modern world where there's a shortage of cars but generally if you bought a new car price goes down. Well it's the same thing with horses if you buy a horse. Generally that value is going down. So it's not an investment. It's a it's an expenditure that you're getting value out those entertainment value value engagement value. That's what you're looking for. And and so so. That's my my second red flag on it gets my third. Red flag is is Asked people who are actually in that syndicate asked to speak to some if they won't let you speak to people who are actually them already. That should be a red flag as well. You know it'd be. It'd be like going to the grocery store and saying sorry You can't talk to any of the customers about any of the products you just gotta volume as is so. Would you know or restaurant with the great example. You can't read any of the reviews. You just gotta eat So so those are. Those are things where i i would say are are things that would jump out at you if you're looking at syndicates. But you know you mentioned it. I can't think of a better way for ninety. Nine point nine nine nine nine nine percent of people who ever dreamed of being a horse racing owner or horse thoroughbred owner..

"Is that there's a a large underclass of people who were never going to climb that ladder of success. It didn't matter. How many were there. You could put as many rungs extra runs in as you want it and they were never going to climate like the afghan. Give as much money as you want as much training as you want. They're not gonna fight. Yeah and there are some people. It doesn't matter how easy a climate is. They're they're not gonna climb right and so that group of people that that stat underclass has that has existed in every society has been a slave class a surf class. It's been a class. That's fully dependent like by definition the fully dependent because they will not climbed the ladder of success to their own independence. They want to be dependent. They will actively work to rip out the rungs from the latter so they don't have to climb it. Those people are by definition slaves. That's that's the class that if they serve with our welfare system. We've tried to pretend that they aren't slaves. We've tried to put actually. They're fully dependent independent and self directed and perfectly competent. And all that we we turn a blind eye and pretend that they don't fully depend upon other people and aren't fully behold into other people to provide for them. What's happening now is that that relationship is being formalized. They're they're they're reverting back to to old ways in a sense where we don't have this these fans these silly little mythologies that we tell ourselves that oh the every single person is perfectly is all equal and perfectly competent and everyone could self directed and and and all these different things. Those those things are are falling away. They're being revealed as as as fantasies and so the question is are you going to be someone who falls into that class. Someone who's in. Who's part of that underclass or are you going to get yourself out now while you still can because eventually even people who don't belong in that class are going to have such a difficult time to to get out that it's going to expand the definition of who belongs in that class in a and it's not like it's not like there's still a place where you can just. Oh we're just gonna completely uncharted territory. This totally unknown land and just settle it ourselves and get away from everything that you're doing that doesn't exist on the on the in the world really anymore. Were effectively globalized. Where you can't just escape somewhere so you you have to be able to escape but then you have to also make yourself financially independent In addition to that. And i remember the last thing that i was going to say that i've forgotten earlier was that I don't remember exactly what you said that made me think of it. But basically it's the idea that Like creating a pursuing wealth and power is Is something that is actually good. It's like it's a proactive. Good thing that you can do. Not because you're necessarily trying to take it away from other people. But for all these other reasons that we've said and i would add to that and say in some cases there are some people that that it needs to be zero-sum game there are evil people who will step into a power vacuum and they will accumulate wealth empower themselves if good people don't put themselves in their way and prevent them from doing that so if everybody just says no we're not going to accumulate wealth and resources and power and influence For because it's immoral or whatever then what you're saying is functionally indistinguishable from only evil. People should have wealth power influence and accumulate resources because the evil people are always going to do it. There's a there's a there's a phrase that everybody likes to us as it relates to like three percenters and and You know stepping in and fighting a war is the the the only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing right. Well what you're saying is is exactly the same thing they're saying if you if you choose not to do these things. Wha what you're saying is well only. That's that's something only bad people do. And that's that's that's absurd. You're you're basically guaranteeing yourself a life of servitude. And not the good kind. A life of of of oppression because you lack the capacity to to defend yourself financially physically or otherwise so i would just challenge everybody you know there are lots of different ways to enslave people. And what's happening in afghanistan right now as as very close correlations to some of the stuff that we're seeing here in america and the way out the only way out i can see is giving yourself more opportunity and in order for you to have more opportunity. You need more you. Have you need a greater store of resources. And you need in mobility you need the ability to move and that's what we focus on here. That's what the networks to help you do. And and again. I hope that you guys will will heed this warning because i guarantee you. There's there's another financial collapse. There's there's another covert attack. That's gonna lock everybody. Down is in a force everybody back onto the government dole. Jobs will be lost and it's going to be exactly like twenty twenty where all of a sudden people are like. Oh shit now all. Wow now i better do something. The worst time to try and to try and create something like that is when you're on your heels like you wanna we only firmly planted you want things to be going. Well and the problem is nobody wants to ever make those decisions or make those moves when things are going good. They're like break. I've got good job making a good income. I'm happy and they're not considering the fact that man with the stroke of a pen your job could be gone. You know your your chance to provide for.

"A month for their kids is not going to be too long before now. Their standard of living goes up by three hundred bucks a month. And then that's how freedoms we talk about. How how do you how do you enslave a nation. Well you do it the way the taliban do it you can come in and you can. You can fight your way and you can use You know use fear and violence in order to achieve that end or you can do it. The way our government does it which is to enslave you by taxing you in secret providing you subsidies publicly and getting you addicted to the money that you receive from government. They could just as easily have said. You know what we're just going to increase the subsidy that you get and that you can deduct at the end of your tax taxpayer now. The the what they'll tell you is. Oh we're doing this for you. See that we have to wait till the end of the year. You need this money now. Americans need this money every month and so we're going to give it back to you. Well how about you just not tax me for it in the first place how about you just not take it out of my check to begin with how about you. Adjust the tax structure. So that i get a keep an extra three hundred and thirty three dollars a month from my income from the check that i get every single month. Well we can't do that. No no no. Why because it's not advantageous for us to do that because we we can't maintain control of you. And i feel like this is the beginning of a new era that will ultimately lead to universal basic income and If you haven't heard my discussion on universal basic income we should probably have that again because universities again come is is an is an an awful idea. Now i've talked about this in the context of if you're going to have a social welfare system it's far better that you cut out the middleman and just give the money directly to people rather than a running it through a government. That didn't get to decide. Oh you get this much for this and this much for that and this much for this better just give them a check and be done with it but the problem with giving everyone a universal basic income. Because that's what they wanna do. They said well. We're just gonna give everybody whatever it is. What's the poverty level. Twenty two thousand dollars a year. Which gonna give away ten or twelve thousand dollars a year blanket. Where does the government get that money. They they can. We already spent a dollars more every year than we bring in taxes. What's going to happen when everybody in america. Now it's a basic subsistence of living well in a very short period. Time it's like it's like the Like the minimum wage. If you raise the minimum wage initially you. The people who receiving minimum wage are ecstatic. They really love it the very quickly. Prices adjust prices adjust because there's new money in the economy. That wasn't there before that money gets spent standard of living rises. And all you've done is raise the floor on what a subsistence living is. This isn't a complicated concept to understand. But you really do understand. Is that all you've done all you will do by. Creating a universal basic income is raised the floor on what what the poverty level is in america. You know go from whatever. It is twenty thousand dollars a year to thirty thousand dollars a year. The same people who live in poverty. Today we'll still be in poverty that extra money that was supposed to go to give them the freedom to switch jobs or to focus on more creative endeavors that will quickly end because costs will rise in order to account for the new money. That circulates in the economy. Most of that money is not gonna come from corporations. That's that's a. That's a fool's idea what's gonna come by new money. Creation by printing new money that is going to increase wealth inequality as poor people who need to spend that money. Spend it on things that they need first and then things that they want later and that money will transfer back to people who don't have to spend it who were better about managing their wealth. This is universal. Basic income will lead to war poverty and greater wealth inequality than anybody can possibly understand and this is how it starts child tax credit. We're just gonna change the way we give you the tax credit. We're gonna give it to you in a check rather than a deduction then. It's going to be tied what's going to happen with this is it's ultimately going to be a central bank digital currency is going to be the the way that this this this. The the universal basic income is delivered and and then ultimately to be able to get that Digital deposit to you. You're going to have to partake in the ceremonial rituals of the regime. Let's let's say In other words it's going to be tied. This give the vaccine passport things. This is ultimately going to be tied together with the central bank digital currency. That your went when you get or if you get your deposit will depend on your vaccination status in some way or another. That's the that's the direction that we're heading. This ultimately will be the tool by which it's You're allowed to be employed. You're allowed to travel. You're allowed to go across state lines you know however it's employed this direction where it's heading that you if you're going to receive this payment every month which anybody who's not actively pulling themselves out of that Body of people will be sucked back into it because it will become economically. Unviable for you won't be able to compete if you aren't ahead of people now if you don't start getting of people now you're just gonna get pulled back into the into the board and then if you want to do anything go anywhere or live a normal life then you're going to have to submit yourself to the experimental medical tree. Yes some some will and and that's just the start. I think is just that. That's the that's the one thing we're focused on now is oh you're going to have to be vaccinated or not but there. They're a litany of other things that they can. They can control you with if they keep most of the money. And you don't have a you don't have at least a an amount of wealth and wealth is dependent upon lifestyle and a lot of different things right but More importantly is is the mobility. So we're sitting in In in bed this morning kind of watching the news and california is now mandating masks for even people who have been vaccinated at outdoor events. Again and nancy just goes. Oh my god. I i cannot wait to get out of the state. There are millions of people in the state who can't leave. They can't go anywhere they're stuck. They have no income mobility and no wealth with which to utilize to facilitate a move like that and the easiest way for you to maintain your.

"We controlled the country. We decided this is enough. You guys you guys take ownership for yourself. And they decided they didn't want it so now you live integrity. Tough matt your thoughts. What's interesting to me is looking at the background of ghani. The president of the recent president of afghanistan. Any people a lot of people here a name like that and they just assume that you know the only difference between him and the taliban is you know he just happened to have a different name. You know that he's just another. He's just another one of them and afghan people but looking at his background before becoming president in twenty fourteen ghani's spent much of his life studying how to boost growth in poor nations a fulbright scholar with a doctorate from columbia university. He taught at some of america's elite academic institutions before stints at the world bank and united nations later he co wrote fixing failed states a framework for rebuilding fractured world. And then down here. It says after the us invasion in two thousand and one ghani returned to afghanistan for the first time in more than a quarter century more than a quarter century. That's five years for those of you missouri right. This guy had this guy's not an afghan. This guy's in american. This guy is an american bureaucrat. He's a. He's a member of the american intelligence. Yeah he was he was essentially just like he was quote unquote the afghans like ruling themselves in the same way. That as you pointed out like every empire appoints cutouts to manage and just ensure that things ensure that the money keeps flowing the the reason that come that the empires occupy other nations is either to keep them down as a threat or to take advantage of their resources or both and in this case afghanistan is loaded with resources in particular. The opium trade is massive there. Now it's interesting that right. At the time that the opioid crisis in america becomes a major political hot button issue. And right at the time that there is a How should i say. This is a very a very unique medical innovation. Innovative technology released that now were approaching a time. When it will be mandated that everybody has to partake in this technology. Think about the money associated with that. Now think about the people who had been associated with the opium trade trade in afghanistan and which people are going to be associated with this new pharmaceutical product. It's the it's the exact same people they don't need those resources anymore and afghanistan. it's not the opium trade is now politically when you talking about the medical. You're talking about the the virus stuff they talk with the code stuff. Yeah and the the vaccines basically all right. Yeah so all. The major pharmaceutical players of this all traces back to the to the financial interest. The top all the major bureaucrats in corporations they all operate according to the financial interests involved in extracting as much value from the on the resources of each country on the were in the world as they possibly can and so so here they basically just the opium trade in afghanistan just became not nearly as profitable. It's now there's it's it's either become too much of a hot button. Issue or the vaccine angle is just way more profitable and it's just not even worth the resources anymore so you you think it's a. It's a fact that the money players don't see a value in staying and it's not that the political winds have changed here in america and that withdraws preferable now even by republicans even by neo cons. You or is it a mixture. both. I think it's a mix of both but if if it was financially viable to stay there like if there was still a major financial interest in staying there than the political winds would be adjusted accordingly. The fact that it's become politically untenable is is on that that narrative has been allowed to percolate and been allowed and had been been that amplified because it's useful for this transition now there's also in addition vaccine issue. There's also a nil in china is also very very a very profitable trade and a lot of the same people are are. The world is basically run by druglords. So so on those. Those things have have just made it. So the afghanistan just isn't profitable in the same way anymore. Now just from having followed the way that america managed regime change and an imperial occupation and stuff throughout the latter half of the of the nineteen or the twentieth century. My my gas is that the taliban effectively functioning as cutouts themselves that there's a deal basically with among the leadership because the leadership of these organizations are much more machiavelli in and much less ideologically radical than their followers. They used the ideological radicalism to keep their followers bought in but everybody at the top. They're all very much like we're gonna sit down. We're gonna talk. we're businessmen. We were interested in the in the money. Were interested in political power. Whatever so my assumption is that the taliban effectively the us is the us interest are basically just kind of like all right. You guys are going to keep doing the job but you guys took over now. You know we're not here anymore but you guys keep doing it. You make your payments on time. You know everything. Well we'll let you run your own country as long as you You make it easy on us so all of these things like when when people try to think of of this stuff in terms of the electoral politics games. You're just seeing like the surface. You're you're seeing the illusions and stuff that are that are kept cloudy on the surface to kinda disguise. what's really going on underneath. Yeah and and what it is is is really. It's the i think it's the the medical financial interests that are. They're driving whether it is or not it all comes back to to wealth and power. That's everybody all of the major players are are interested in wealth and power. How do i mask the most. I can for myself and the problem with afghanistan is i. It's a question of. How do i amass as much as i can for myself at the expense of others. And that's what i find a horrific about the the acquisition of wealth and power. It's for that end. it's it's it's a completely different story and we always try and talk about on this show Around the idea of how do we. How do we create more wealth and power for ourselves so that we're not subject to those kinds of people not because we want to not because we wanted at the expense of others is that we want it by by helping and assisting others that you can do that in america at least you can do that and there was a time had the afghans decided that they wanted it that they could have had that too. They just don't want it. That's what i want you to understand. They don't want freedom there the they wanna talk about it. It's like a lot of a lot of folks. I'll libertarian folks. They talk about wanting freedom but they don't actually want it because their actions don't don't show you that they do and so i. I mean nobody. There's nothing it was. There are a ton of things that were done wrong but everybody here. Every right now is arguing over the optics of it. They're like oh. This looks horrible. Who cares. it's all going to end the same way now. If you if you had exited with a better light all you would be able to do is just it. Provides you political cover. It doesn't change the end result. And i just. I find this this entire discussion just absolutely horrific better term than that. It's it's it regis. The watching the watching the response to this just reminds me of how much of american politics really is. Just people being upset at the optics of what's happening rather than what's actually happening itself and and people just being kind of it's it's a very it's like it's like the buji white person kind of thing where it's like they. They oppose homelessness because they don't wanna see homeless people because homeless people give him the creeps. So it's it's not that they actually care about the the the homeless people. They're just kind of like the. What's it from arrested development. She's like she's like hair ten. Here's ten dollars. Go see yourself a star war. It's that kind of sentiment that it's just like get this stuff out of my sight so i don't have to be personally offended and upset by this isn't this isn't restricted to the liberal. Side of the conservative libertarian. This bic witness across all categories of people for the most part were very. We live very cushy on a soft lives and so then the things when we see the ugliness in the world and we we want things to make the ugliness. Go away from our site. We don't want to actually address the root cause of the ugliness and the one other thing i would say that You said that the when the when the people I just totally lost the thought it escaped. It'll come back to me okay. Well let's so let's speaking of optics and and context in the way that we view the world i want to. I want to shift gears a little bit and talk about the checks that we just got in the mail..

"A guerilla war in a place like afghanistan. it is an on winnable war. Let me explain why. It's a misconception to think of the taliban as a terrorist organization. They're not terrorists this. Somebody told me this years and years ago while we were in country and it just floored me because he always think of these people as terrorists. Sure they do terrorist things. They do some things that are tyrannical. But they're not terrorists what they are is there a guerrilla army fighting an insurgency. When you think about it in those terms you really understand. That's why this is unwinnable. See they're a guerrilla army fighting an insurgency the insurgency has us do when we talk about it here in america. We talk about the insurgents in afghanistan the taliban group. But that's that's not who the insurgents are we are. We're occupiers in their country. Now are we there for the right reasons That you decide but the point is we are the occupiers of the country. They have all the time in the world to wait to prepare to plan to go into hiding to blend into indigenous population while american soldiers rotate out. Every six to twelve months they never roll rotate out. They live there night and day every day. They know the terrain better. They have either the fear or the support of the local population. Depending on who you are. Those types of wars are not winnable occupy wars of occupation are always doomed to failure point to one. That's ever one point two one. We've ever won that anyone in histories ever everyone. Nobody wins an occupation. The romans figured this out for many years the romans idea was make the world roman. They realized they couldn't do that. They couldn't turn people who had a country and had a culture they couldn't turn them into romans if they didn't wanna be and the ended up spending their their their blood in their coin fighting all of these guerrilla armies that were putting up a fight against them. They finally realized okay. All right so we're going to do. We're going to have a magistrate and you guys are going to have kind of your own governing body right so you guys can kind of run yourself. Just make sure you pay the taxes. You don't fight with us and you guys can kind of run your own show and you're just going to be kind of like a province has read the bible. That's what was happening. During jesus's time the pharisees and the suit assise were the governing body that may decisions ran the courts controlled things and then you had pilot who who was. The was the canada the liaison there. He was the ambassador to the area. That was the way rome controlled it's area and you can only do that for a certain period of time before starting to come apart so when you think about it in those terms we should have. We should have been out of there a long time ago. The other thing you understand about the culture there is that there is no delineation between church and state. There they don't even understand the concept. Like how can you have laws without without the koran the koran tells us what to do the koran is the law if a person steals. We cut off his hand. That's what the koran says. There's no question as to whether or not this is still applicable today. Hey maybe we should interpret this in today's standards like maybe we should may maybe cutting off. Somebody's hand for stealing. Sheep isn't the best way. Run a nation or to run a two run a culture. That doesn't even register so the idea that you're going to set up some sort of independent democratic body in those countries is crazy. It was never going to happen. They don't understand the concept the one thing that could change it as education but we spent twenty years. They're educating youth making sure that kids are going to school and learning about this stuff. The there are people in afghanistan kids in afghanistan. Who don't remember what it was like to not live under. Us occupation insane to me. We've kids here at home. We don't know what it's like to not be a war in afghanistan and still after a month of us starting its withdrawal. The news tightens up and the afghans are now under the rule of the taliban once again. This was always going to happen. And i don't know i seeing more. I'm seeing now. A lot of is not. Oh we shouldn't have left. Because i think everybody wants us out of there now. But now it's now everybody's complaining about the way we did it. Who cares how we did it. Oh so so. We didn't leave the we didn't create a fiasco when we left. Let's say we left. Just an everything was policy. The taliban waited to start. Its move until you had completely pulled out. Afghanistan is still going to end up the same way. It looks horrible now. You can complain about the optics but who gives a shit. It was always gonna end the same way so what you're really saying is we. Don't like the pr from this. We don't like the optics of it. We should have done it different so that the optics would be different do that. That's the most insane logic i've ever heard. Oh we now. He's this is his saigon moment employees. And then you've got other groups of people who are like this is what this is. What retreat and surrender looks like those guys are assholes political.

"Today. We'll be talking about a couple of different things around the concept of a how do you enslave nation. And there's a lot of different ways you can do it do it. Through violence can do it through passive political change. You can do it through money as we want to talk about then. I want to talk about two things that are happening in the world right now. First and foremost is what's happening in afghanistan. I feel as though i am uniquely qualified to speak on this both because of my past and also because of inside information that i am privy to that ninety nine point nine percent of the world is not and i'm going to have to be very careful about how i talk about these things because much of his stuff that is not meant to be out and i don't wanna get anybody in trouble and i don't want to damage anybody but it's important that you guys have this information because it is it's really really important in your understanding of what's happening in afghanistan and and what is what is likely to occur. Moving forward the second thing i want to talk about is what no one is talking about right now. Which is maybe the most dangerous the greatest threat to us. Liberty american liberty going on right now and it's a silent threat that i imagine you haven't probably thought of yet and has to do with this. When i got in the mail to the area this week is a check from the. Us government for three hundred. Thirty three dollars. This is my child. Tax credit that i received in the mail and the government ensures me that i'm going to receive this check every single month for as long as my children are children and you start thinking about what that really means and and really the shift that is occurring and and the gravity of this one check. I don't think can be over emphasized because this signals a change in the way our government is treating subsidies and while we hide our taxes see taxes. Come out of your check. most of you don't see it. You don't realize the extent to which year-over-year decade over a decade the government. Fleeces your wealth away from you. They're making a very deal now about the money that they're giving you back. And so i wanna talk about that and just how dangerous. This is to our liberty into our freedoms here in america and And what you can do about it. Because ultimately at the end of the day we have to have an action plan ride. This was this is the. This is the problem with most of the alternative political parties in the world matt was on was on matt. Has the show been released yet. The the lions show that you were on. yeah yeah. I didn't debate with angela mcardle. Yeah it's been released yesterday before. Do they find that is the lines. Liberty podcast. yeah. I should be on the podcast and on their youtube channel. All i've seen is the highlights. I was waiting for it to come out so go. Listen to it today but One thing that i know came out of that because matinee talked about it. Was that the libertarian. Party really has no plan for for any of this. Their whole plan is we just want power. We just want to be elected. We just want to have a seat at the table with no clear objective of what we're going to do once we have that power and i think that's one of the big problems today with with trying to advance. Political change is that they're the number one is that they're so far away from having a seat at the table that it's not really even worth discussing a number to. It wouldn't matter if they had that seat because they're just going to be at the end twiddling their thumbs with with no clear idea of what they're going to do. And so you guys should go and listen to that. Well you should subscribe to lines liberty anyway because it's a great program and they've been doing a ton of debates i i'm not gonna i'm not gonna mention the other thing because i i'll i'll let i'll let them do their thing i but let's talk a little bit about afghanistan for those who don't know i'll briefly because i know we've got new listeners. Vat a lot of new listeners. Come in here over the last few months I used to work for company. called blackwater. Blackwater is a paramilitary company that no longer exists under that name exist under another other under a new name. And i spent about five years in both iraq and afghanistan the bulk of my time. Well not the book. Probably three of the five years was spent in afghanistan in in this in the pre- in the main city of kabul I know that city very very well was. I'm seeing the images and looking the roads. I know exactly where they are in the city when they're when they're talking and when they're doing their reporting and during that time i worked primarily for the us government department not not as much the department of defense but on side of that but more with the state department is let me explain kind of how military contractors work in the early days. They blackwater hired form mainly former special operations guys former seals former delta and special forces guys at former force reconnaissance guys and then later on rangers and and some of the some like tier three assets and early on that was it was great. Because everybody you worked with. I remember my first station. When i joined and went through the certification program was they sent me to mosul which is a city in northern iraq. It's very very dangerous. Everyone on the team was either former force. Recon guy or a former special forces guy is like everybody had got their friends together and had pulled them all into one place. And the reason that i got stationed there was twofold number one because i had a couple of friends who were already operating up there. Who knew my reputation. And as soon as i was able they put in a request to have me sent up there The other reason that i was sent up there is because the day before. I rolled into country in fact while i was sitting in jordan waiting for a flight into into iraq. I found out that four of their security guys had been killed in a vehicle explosion. A car had had come on ramp on one of their highways and had Impacted one of our follow vehicles and killed four people in the suburban and so they were four guys short and they invited. They said okay. We need bodies and you're gonna come and be part of.

"And i know this because i said something like this and spent several weeks having my social media being like firebombed by autistic morons. Well you also you also a pretty good mud-slinger yourself. My you invited pot. Yeah so they'll say oh it's not me. It's not me that i'm worried about. It's it's the kids in yemen. Who are being bombed or the people in the in kate who are locked in cages. And okay so first. Of all this sounds a whole lot like a like progressivism like you sound like a progressive. Who's like oh. I'm not in this for myself. I'm advocating for all these other poor downtrodden people. That's my motivation. You need to. You need to sign up with my belief system so that we can help all these poor downtrodden people that sounds like communism me but the dea. Those people are the people. You're actually advocating for because if you actually cared about those people and you wanted to help those people you would be making yourself as free and and wealthy and mobile as possible because those are the people who can help those other people. You're not gonna do this through the political process like like you actually think you're going to go through the political process and an end the war in yemen. Yeah i tell you. He's our democratic problems. The system doesn't give shit what people think it doesn't care what the what people are voting for or you have to offer them different alternative. You have to offer them something different to do and this is where libertarianism exists as a negative proposition and it needs to have positive news half practice. That's the term for each degree iraq. Since i guess what we're doing right like trying to turn that corner. And and do that. But i i talked to pete about that too. That would you made that point about just make more money and And i talked to him about that. That was an intentional. Like like bomb. Throw by the way if you guys didn't know and so e- i said. Well let's i said we've got to address that because people came back like. Oh yes so i make more money so i pay more taxes so they can bomb more kids in yemen. I'm like you're an idiot. You think the government prince at almost a trillion dollars a year in new money. Do you think they care whether you pay taxes or not what. We don't have any more tax money. We can't bomb anybody anymore. You think like that's third subsisting people the same people that are saying. Oh you have to stop. You have to pay less taxes that they can't bomb brown people in yemen. Those are the same ones who are saying and the fed. So which is it here you know. Is it the factors at the taxation. Obviously it's both but you're not going to do anything about that as a as a as a working at best what what. What reality do you live in that. You think that if you're really that concerned about it you should not pay taxes at all and go to prison for your values. That's what you ought to do. You really believe that it. You know the the the governments in your tax dollars are funding. The killing of innocent children Which you can argue that they are and you have strong moral conviction against that so much so that you would cobble yourself financially by refusing to make money that would create freedom in your life real freedom and liberty in your life that you would hobble yourself in that way then you might as well just refuse to pay taxes be very vocal about it and And go to prison To for for that reason. I i think that's a. That's an incoherent argument against making more money as it's and i talked to pete about it on the on his show and and i don't know so the people who are ready to hear the message will hear it. I've always said you gotta enter the conversation. They're already having their own heads I got really positive responses from people. Lots of didn't get one. I got one guy who just sent me a string of profanity that i couldn't quite decipher on twitter. He was the only guy. And so. I just blocked him and everybody else just had wonderful things to say. Is i really believe in your message. I really enjoyed hearing what you had to say and You know maybe we're starting to move that line a little bit starting to see more and more people in our little our little corner of the world start to get sick and tired of dealing with the politics who are ready to actually make it. Make a difference. There's a lot of demand for this message is resonating with people. The ultimately i think a lot of people are realizing that libertarians in general are more interested in being libertarians than they are in liberty and they they want to identify as a libertarian. They want to be able to virtue signal that they have all the right ideas but they aren't interested in actually putting those ideas into practice but there's a large group of people who are there are people who are being who are being drawn to this message in their their they're recognizing the validity of it. And i think as as as i mean this is over the last eighteen months really like if you if your view of the world hasn't changed significantly over the last eighteen months then either. You're a frigging prophet before or you haven't been paying attention you haven't actually been taking in what's happening around you and letting it update your ideological operating system. This is this. This world is changing into changing rapidly. And the people who there was i just just saw ciprian tweeted something earlier this morning. He quote tweeted. Something bill de blasio said he said the voluntary period is over. We've tried being nice and kind and You know it we're done making the pharmaceutical product Voluntary it's time for for making it. Mandatory and essence and ciprian said all right. Well if you if you live in new york in you've been dragging your feet on this. You have gotten yourself to the point where you are. You're at the position of escape with the clothes on my back. That's what you've you've procrastinate yourself into for a lot of people it. It isn't at that point yet but there's a trajectory. There's a very clear trajectory. The the system has completely divorced itself from reason and rationality and and You know it's. It's very obvious where this is going. And if you wanna survive it you have to stop with the silly the silly games and you have to get down to business and and get serious about taking care of yourself and your family and connecting yourself with communities of people who are who are interested in doing the same thing who are actually gonna do stuff that is is relevant and productive and and contributes to the welfare of the people around them. I agree well. we're trying. we're trying we're going to succeed. We're not just going to try. We'll we're going to win. We're going to succeed. I l will number one because there's no plan b It's always it's always works well when you don't have a backup plan and you got nowhere to go but but you know you got to win. You can't afford to lose losing his death so we're not only that but i think we have. We have the right message at the right time. We've spent years developing the community and what we wanted to build and now we're we're ready for growth. We're ready for their really good people in there. Yeah there are really great people so if you believe in the show of you support us in our ideas the number one thing you can do is.

"Give up all their possessions. An how does that happen right and the book. I'm reading now. is fantastic. Guy by steve housing. And i've known about him for a lot of years. I have never read his book and one of the things that they talk about in the book is that so one of the first things that they'll try and make you do once you become indoctrinated into a cult is they will try and have you give up all of your possessions to the cult. That's money close like literally everything that you've got to sell it all off or to give it to the colt so that they can sell it and they ended up keeping all of your money now as a means of control the less money you have if you can't leave if you've lost your job or your only job is working inside of the cult and they're the ones that provide all of your subsistence all of your living and you have no money and no means of escape or no idea what you would do if you left the community. Then you're a slave. And this is why i say there's a direct correlation between the amount of wealth that you have and the freedom that you have cults. No it the first thing they will try and take away from. You is everything that you own is a way to control you. Governments do the same thing. Oh well we're just gonna tax eighty to ninety percent of your wealth but don't worry where to give you all the services that you need. How is that any different c. Maintaining control of your own money. Your own wealth is critical to freedom. And i don't think enough people really recognize the value in creating wealth and creating income mobility and being able to keep a hold of that money. Most people just want to increase lifestyle. I want a new car when a bigger house. I want to be able to go on vacation zone travel. And all of that this okay. You can do that but you got to build the wealth. I if you don't do that all you've done is create income and income abilities. Fine it gets you a long way but it won't create real freedom for you until you've actually got a little bit of wealth to wealth is is potential power in the in if in energy terms like you have potential energy and kinetic g. wealth is potential power so the the amount of wealth you have or the amount of power that you have is going to be dependent directly on your wealth and wealth isn't just financial i've said before that that there's the really cheesy way of saying the so you can have you can accumulate wealth vertically Which is adding your own skill set. m increasing your income investing making money. All that sort of thing you can increase wealth vertically or you can include increase wealth horizontally laterally. Which is Increasing your network so the cheesy entrepreneur Like a tony robbins. Way of saying it is that you can increase your your net worth or you can increase your network But when you increase your network when you when you accumulate more people around you who think like you who believe like you do value what you do and who are willing to to to contribute to you. Because you're a member of the community. As jason said when you're when when i make a new connection by default because you're part of my community you you've made that new connection is well that's a means of increasing your net worth laterally an increase or increasing your wealth laterally by increasing your network. So the win windy. There's the distinction between individualism and collectivism. And i've been really finding this. Knock that useful of a distinction anymore. That humans are neither individualist nor collectivist and on neither one is applicable. Neither one neither one works. Neither one is both with like they're both have like theoretical but they aren't actually borne out in reality in reality. humans are tribalist. They're not individualist. They're not collectivist. Their tribalist and your tribe is outworking of your family. Every single person is born into a family. You aren't born as an individual you're born as the child of your parents and the brother sister of your siblings and you know the the grandchild the niece nephew. You are born into a network From the very beginning and ultimately And so you will always identify with that network. I mean it's literally in the that you used to have other people identify you. It's the name that they give you that you share with them. That's the way that's the the your identified as a member of a tribe so when people have tried to get have have have moved away from this and try to pretend. Oh no you can actually just be a completely atomised standalone individual and you don't need to identify with a group at all. That's actually a pretty dangerous A propaganda propagandistic technique to try to break you down and leave you vulnerable. You need to have a tribe you will always have a tribe and you have to be honest about that fact and then you have to be very deliberate in creating the tribe that you are going to identify with an and connect yes of too i this this i find it odd that so many people in gun the liberty community and i don't even know that is there a better way to talk about canada. Libertarian freedom minded. i dunno const. I've even kind of rope some constitutional into that. I really struggled worst term ever. Is liberty lovers that just makes you want to stab my is now. That's just liberty lovers. But it's it's yeah. It's like libertarians. Conservatives constitutionalists anarchists of care about individual people care about individual liberty. Right some people really inside of that inside of that community Which is broad By the way Really take offense to that. They're gonna think about it. We all identify with some group. Even if you're an anarchist right like you're you're an anarchist capitalist you identify with anarchy capitalism. Right you don't identify as i'm an individualist. There's there's we define ourselves By groups in term and see if i can find ourselves to groups. It's i just have never understood the notion that oh yeah. We can't do anything together because we have to be individual assist like that's nonsense then even makes sense right whole notion. The whole notion of identity is really interesting. It's like it's a paradox. Because your identity is the thing that you claim that sets you apart like this is the thing that makes me unique is my identity. And the way you define. Your identity is by connecting it to other girls. Yeah yeah so there's this paradoxical aspect of identity where it's both it's both individualist and collectivist at the same time. And that's why. I say that humans aren't individuals or collectives. Humans are tribal they. They function as as a tribe. And really. I think that there's if you wanna get like eric with i think that there's probably truth. There's concept called uh negra gore which is that basically the that carl young said that People don't have ideas ideas. Have people and an agra was isn't a colt concept that basically says that There's there are non physical entities that are that are made manifest into like the material world by the people who who believe in those ideas kind of like an idea as an actual is like a. It's like a deity. Almost the ideologies are like deities that and this is what the ancients believed. They believed that that that like your passions and emotions and stuff they believe those were actual entities that they like that they related to non-physical entities. So i think that this is inevitable. And like you point out via attempt to eliminate tribalism is itself a tribalist instinct. It you you then align yourself with the tribe of people who want to not be tribalist. Yes roy. So the the i guess..

It's one generation. Hey you don't think that same thing could happen here. I i saw an article today Unemployed americans file a lawsuit against cova states ending covert relief. So some of these states are like dude. We have twenty twenty million open jobs or something like that. We can't fill and much. These people home just taking paycheck. Like let's cut the paycheck and force them to go back to work and earn a living. Well of course now. This is caused now. There are multiple lawsuits being filed by people. Who say well. I can't find work. One of them was a nurse in a knick unit who is suddenly unemployed now some of the people legitimately probably still are having trouble finding work people who worked in the for example in the cruise industry. If that's the industry you work in still very hard to get there. But there are millions of other jobs available for you in the interim how if you it is not the government's responsibility to make sure you get. Fed is not the government's responsibility to make sure that you have a job in your industry doing the work that you know how to do Sometimes you gotta get out there and just bust your ass a little bit to make it happen and so but these people are coming back and fighting them on this and saying well no. We shouldn't have to because we if we're having trouble finding a job that means we should continue to see. This was a double edged sword and so there are a lot of people who just lack freedom. You know we talk about it all the time but so few people actually have it so few people are actually independent. Most of them are deepened. As becoming a lot easier has become so easy to create that independence in your own life. If you're willing to work for it. That i i struggle to have a lot of pity for people who are still who still find themselves. Unemployed and living off government assistance. I i understand you got kids. You got family got bills that yet you've built a life and now you're struggling financially. Everybody has ups and downs as i said before. This is an infinite game more play but with the government spending trillions of dollars a year and now multiple trillions of dollars. You hear the president. He came out and said he made one of the most incoherent statements about in support of moore spending. He actually said if we print two trillion three trillion dollars. It will actually reduce inflation. And i it's just laughable but these that's what these guys are gonna do the we've already spent created four trillion dollars. They want to create another three. How long do you think it's going to be before seeing double digit triple digit inflation. You know how long do you think is gonna be before unemployment just skyrockets because they you know because all of the wealthy people leave the country now. You think that that's crazy. That's that's nuts. Why the wealthy people will always be here. And don't be so sure. I remember reading an article to you guys about four or five years ago on this show about a woman in venezuela who was unemployed. Who couldn't feed. Her family was standing in a bread line and she was being asked about job jobs and why she employs. She's like we can. There's no jobs here. All the business owners left all the people who who owned businesses and actually had any wealth when the government started to take it away and hyperinflation said and they all moved. They went other places. There's nobody left to give us a job. One generation guys one generation is scary stuff. But what's a little bit of planning hell with with a little bit of work. You can build something that alleviates that burden or at least leads the severe risk that you're putting yourself and your family in Only read some Read some some by our sponsors today. And i'm really having trouble thinking about our sponsors today and then we'll get back to this so i was indochino. She has no indochino sponsor in the show for a response from the show and my wedding by giving us some suits to wear. So we're gonna be putting some stuff out for them really appreciate them doing that for us and we're we apparently sell lawsuits for them and for good reason because they're amazing suits there one of my favorite products to endorse. Because i know you're going to have a good experience when you go there. Not only that they now have new show rooms in nordstrom's so if for example you don't have a a show room in your location. Because they do have. They've got online. You can do all the measurements online. You can pick out your all of the different features the color the cut. The you know the lapels the stitching you can do all that customize the entire thing get a custom tailored suit just for your body for the low price of three hundred ninety nine dollars and i know what you think in those guys got a little bit of money who've had a little a little bit of dollars in your pockets you think to yourself That well. Oh hang on. I think somebody's trying to call me. Okay back to the reid so now not only they have online where you can do it all online. Which is how. I've gotten how i got. I two suits that. I got bought from them. Then i moved to la and they have a showroom here we could go and just an indochino store. And they'll do all the measurements for you. You get to actually see all the colors and the fit and the cut and everything and and see how it looks. It's a really great way to do it if you can. And then they custom tailored suit. And then they send it to your. You can come pick it up in the showroom while now they've done a deal with nordstroms.

The community are are we gonna let one of the nice things about making people pay to be part of a community is that you tend to get people who care a lot about the thing that they're paying for If you let people in for free is that going to ruin things.

"We are living in the greatest period in human history. A period of massive technological and economic advancement. Never in our history. Have we been so close to a world where we can live truly free and independent lives would. Here's the thing. There are those with money power and influence who would rather see you dependent on them in the system they create a system designed to keep you comfortable apathetic and distract. We believe the road to true. Independence doesn't come through political elections or senseless regulation rather in maximizing the empowerment of the individual. You feel the same way the money's jason stapleton welcome to wealth power and influence boys and girls cheese happening around here right now. A lot of people don't like change. I while i find it a bit stressful to have to go through everything that we're doing right now. I i actually enjoy change. I liked cia. I like divvy and things up making things different and so lot to cover today. Thanks amy i if those of you not watching the video version of the show. I decided before the wedding in october I was going to cut my hair short. And just see if i liked it or not. I immediately regretted the decision. Even though everybody else said as amy did that looked sharp. And so i don't know what to do now. We'll see i'm figure out something. But i've got a chance to let it grow out. I think after the wedding is over. I'm going to. I've been eye color. The hair i color my hair just because frigging old. And i didn't wanna go gray and it was weird because i was. I was at the stage where it was just the size when i started coloring it. I don't know about you matt matt. You color your hair yet. No no no. You don't do any of that yet. Wow you you you. The flowing locks that no grace. I started raising their. But how old are you. How old are you Third how old am i thirty. Two thirty okay. All right so you. Yeah you're you're quite. You're quite a bit younger than me. I was thinking you were like thirty six thirty seven. You just local. I have this app feel fit. That goes with our special scales. Gets all your body fat and everything and it says that my metabolic age is thirty six. So that's probably basically. I'm and of shape for my age man. I'm feeling that too. So all right so anyway. So when i first started coloring it i was just getting it on the wingtips and it looked stupid and that was when i was doing the show for the history channel and i watched some cuts of myself with this. You know these wingtips white sides. And i thought that looks horrible so i started coloring and i've just kept doing it. It's at at frankly. If you do it right like if you go to professional to get it done. It actually does look really good. It's not like you don't look like some dude. Who died his hair black using some over the counter stuff But i now. I'm starting to see because during covert i started to let it grow out and i wasn't bothering to do anything with it and i could see it's gray like all the way through now and so. I was talking with nancy about it. She's like you should just cut it all shore and let it go gray and you could be the silver fox and i'm like i don't want to be the silver fox i wanna be the guy who's got no gray hair and as so i'm gonna have to do so anyway at the end of the weddings over i'm gonna cut it short again and then i'm gonna let it all go out. I'm not gonna want to see. Just how great it is. And then we'll decide what i want to do with it. I don't want to make that transition yet. Man i'm not old enough to transition to full grey Anyway so let me tell you what's going on here so this is this was all going on and this is why. I'm so stressed out and and frustrated. Well that's even now. That's not even right. I'm not frustrated actually really excited so Since the pandemic happened. I don't know if you guys know this or not. But i'm when i moved to los angeles it was out of necessity because i had I left trae. Empowered at at of fallout with my business partner there I couldn't use the studio that i had built. And i was in the process of going through a divorce as you guys know risk was really just a pretty nasty time and i needed to keep revenue flowing. And the only way i could do that. The only thing i really had at the time was the show and the show goo generates significant amount of money and so i needed a home and i needed a producer and so i was going to leave westwood. One at the time was the person who handled all of our advertising and i was in california finalizing some of the stuff for the show that we just wrapped with the history channel and i ended up. They were wanting to sign a new contract with me. And i sent him a no and i to The head of the podcasting over there as kelly integral and kelly. And i saw kellyanne note and i said listen i. I don't think i'm going to be able to continue with these guys And she said well. Let's let's meet for lunch. Talk about it and she said i sh- i. She was in chicago because that's where she had been for for years. And i said well i'm not in. I can't fly to chicago. I'm out in la right now. She said no. I'm in l. a. Now this is where we're hosting the podcast. Division is now here in los angeles. And i said oh well that's convenient and so we met for lunch and i sat down with her and i laid it out for. I said i'm paying you. Guys forty percent of the revenue that comes out of the show. I need that money. I need that money. So that i can hire producers that i can put a so. I can put a studio together again. I can broadcast out of and hopefully salvage a salvage business. That was fledgling and she said well. A what have we gave you a place to to host the show and all of the equipment to do it so you wouldn't have to buy all that stuff new and and that you could use five days a week. I so wash pretty good but that insult my producer problem. Because i need somebody to help me with ashes..

"Midnight. Bourbon cost the opportunity to better place in the minute. The jack comes off that answer to the question is yes if paco stays on. It's kind of clear in the video at least to me that midnight bourbon was gonna run third. They both had gone by him or were in the process of going by him. And you know it just seemed like that was where it was going gonna end up now. Paco disagreed a little bit. In the post race quotes. He said he told everybody was fine. And he's gone ice up but he said my horse kicked me in. The knee felt pain in my ten in there and i couldn't move my leg for about ten minutes. I'm fine now you know. He's given us report. He said i had my horse and the right position to win. I was fighting back but my horse had a lot of run left. So i think i could have won that race. I one hundred percent disagree with that part of the statement because you were in the lead and both horses kind of went by at the same time now. They weren't you know. I think he would have been a length and a half back to links back and i know. It's hard for the stewards. You don't want them playing god in terms of just being out there. Predicting what could have happened But you know. I disagree with pacos comet. They're just from watching races like midnight. Bourbon was not winning that race. They were actively going by him. But then the horse did log in and so therefore again he was cost the opportunity for a better place. So i one. Hundred percent agree with the disqualification. One hundred percent agree with kind of how that all played out. there was a great quote afterwards. Flabby his only real quote was. I'm really proud of my efforts.
