"Personally this is fresh air. I'm dave davies in today for cherry gross. When i was a kid growing up in texas i was fascinated by the story of the alamo the old spanish mission and ford in san antonio which was the site of the most famous battle of the war in which texas won its independence from mexico back in eighteen. Thirty six about one hundred eighty rebels. In the alamo were surrounded by mexican army which stormed the fort and killed its defenders. My day brian burrow is one of three riders who have a new book about the alamo and the revolt that separated texas from mexico. The authors say. They're all proud texans but as writers they also love facts and a hard look at the historical record shows that the accounts commonly told of the texas origin story. Don't hold up to scrutiny. Little is said for example about the texas rebels insistence on keeping slavery as a cause of their conflict with mexico and some of the cherished the alamo like davy crockett and jim buoy weren't exactly the selfless martyrs for freedom. Thought the book also looks at modern battles over how to treat the alamo which still stands in downtown san antonio. One of those stories involves phil collins. Yes the rock singer phil collins. Brian burrow is the author of six previous books including the bestseller barbarians at the gate. His new book with chris tomlinson and jason stanford is called. Forget the alamo. The rise and fall of an american myth will brian burrow. Welcome to fresh air. Thanks for having me that. You and i both grew up in texas. Were you fascinated by the story of the alamo as a kid no more than any other kid. I think what always struck me was just that i was growing up in a place that used to be a country in paul. That's interesting fact. What i think can be difficult for outlander. Non texans to understand is how much part of one's identity that becomes growing up in texas. I don't know that wouldn't south dakota's wonderful as they are really have stayed identities that kids go around bragging about are feeling about. And it's the alamo story is really at the center of the whole texas creation myth. Let's talk about how this fight began. That led to the battle of the alamo. In the first decades of the nineteenth century in the eighteen and twenties texas was essentially a province of mexico for spain and as as Mexico tug got its independence from spain. It was a province of mexico. How did white settlers come to establish a presence there right mexico as a young republic had had a real tough time as spain had before it populating texas they just couldn't get people to go up. There didn't need to be reason to go up here. In during the eighteen teens the state was literally overrun by the comanche and to a lesser extent stealing horses and mules. So that by eighteen twenty there were maybe four thousand people in the entire state there office buildings in manhattan have more people than that and so the mexican government was looking for some type of buffer That could be brought in a break between the command cheese and mexico proper and eighteen. Twenty one when a down on his luck. Missourian named moses austin wrote in san antonio proposing that he be allowed to settle some americans in on lands in southeast texas that were unoccupied the mexican government said that sounds like a great idea and so the first american collins who call themselves texans came in eighteen twenty one and over the next fifteen years they built a thriving colony built on cotton production slave base cotton production which was from the beginning point real friction between the americans and the mexican government..

"As it's swinging. You don't always see where it's headed. You typically see where it's been? So that the opinion most of us have as to what's going on. Is based on What was going on. I've always admired people who can see a trend. Before it happens. Some of them. Wrong not out of 10 times, but the 10th time they're right. But it's so big. That they get the credit for it. And then some people have a tendency not to get mired in the here and now, but to see the trend and what it represents. I'm going to tell you that where the pendulum wasps Was the left. Having consolidated power in the federal government. And I'm telling you that where that is going Is a marketplace of people. Who are furious. That are now flexing their muscles. Sometimes things have to get very bad before they can get better. And sometimes a terrible thing has to happen in order to spark change. People get complacent, they get lazy. Give a great example. The United States was intent on entering war war, too. Many people believe. That pulling Helber was provoked. In order to Muster American support for entering the war. I don't know. I've read a lot about it. I'm interested in it. But there is a very strong theory that many people have publicly stated in. Many people have also said that some important people close to the situation have told them this off the record, But I don't know. But it's possible even if it's 1% possible. And the theory would go that President Roosevelt was aware That the Japanese were preparing an attack. And that President Roosevelt. Intentionally failed to prepare our resources. Because had we repelled that attack successfully. America would be beating its chest and probably cheering. Rather than wanting to enter into a war. But by being the victim Of This horrible attack. That it mustard Americans support and young men 16 and 17 years old rushed down and claimed to be 18 so that they could go off and give their lives to war. You look at how the battle you look at how the war For Texas independence from Mexico. Played out. The most pivotal battles. Were battles where the Texas settlers the frontiersman lost. And that was that Goalie ad, which only a Texan would know about. And the Alamo. The Spanish mission at San Antone. That especially what happened. At the Alamo. Inside there was such Colorful figures as Davy Crockett, who my son Crockett is named after Jim Buoy, after whom the buoy knife is Is known. William Barrett. Travis if you drive the highways of Texas And you have a listing of those who died in the battle of the Alamo. You will be driving through the roster of those who died in that battle. That managed to galvanize the people. To defeat the Mexicans. Just a few miles up the road outside of Houston, east of Houston afterward. What I'm trying to say is Sometimes losing a battle. Can help you win the war. The loss. Of President Trump as our president. Created an ache. For many people. Created a paying Created a a sense of unfairness. Which was then calm pounded. Bye. This claim that January 6th was the worst massacre in the history of man can not true, and in fact, we're gonna go through that the next segment. Everything you need to know about January 6th. And the supposed claims of all this violence. That is not true. The same Alex Jones show. I'm telling you, there's a lot of questions that they can't answer. And there's a lot of things that are being stated that are not true. And they're clearly not true. You can have your own opinions. You can't have your own facts. So then what happened on January 6th? And then the deep platform in of the president. So that closed down a communication line. Between the president. And his supporters. And that was sort of Slamming the door in people's faces. That left people very angry. It's just been one after the other after the other after the other after the other. I don't think people have had enough. It's a small thing in the grand scheme. But it's a fun. Came out this weekend Mark Cuban The owner of the Dallas Mavericks. 13 games had not played the national anthem. Dallas Mavericks Games. I guess they thought nobody would notice. So he was asked about it. And Mr tough guy who probably takes his direction from the Chinese. Said. Yeah, we're not playing the national anthem anymore. The outcry. Woz loud And swift. News headline this morning. MBA is now requiring Mm hmm. N BA teams to play the national anthem. Before every game. Mark Cuban came out and said, I'll comply. That's not putting Trump back in the White House. That is a sign that even the MBA Which has tend to go a little more social justice to some of the other folks. Even the MBA has had to realize. You can only push people so far. There's a reason Twitter doesn't deep platform, everyone With whose views they disagree. First of all would be bad for business.

"That's what one of these Yes, I I know that that particular reference myself from many tumbles down the hill. Michael down you go. Yeah, coming back to my my teacher before the break, though, And that's one thing that really frustrates me is when people are so stuck on looking at past events. Through the lenses of what we know now and what we experienced out and what we believe now. And I think the Alamo is a perfect beating, whipping horse for that sort of a thing. I mean, we and that's what I love about your book is you, You look at both sides of the equation there. And make sure it's very clear that it's not fared as someone sitting here and you know 2022 to look back at whether the Texans are right or wrong or the Mexicans were right or wrong or just it. Just it was what it was in the context of what happened. Yeah, You can't beat up history with the lens of today. I mean, that's one of the most important lessons of history is that in each one of these battles, for example, that signifies Having a frog in my throat today. I'm sorry to say that signify the Hungarians and the Croats were fighting for Christian religion and the Turks were fighting from Islam. Both Have I still got? You said yesterday. I'm like, Yeah, Both of them were fighting for what they believed in. And the fact was that the only one could win. So we can't bring our standards of today to the lessons of the past. Do you consider that to me? It's almost like historical malpractice. Particularly you're talking about young minds. Yes, I believe it's cultural malpractice, and it's It's something I got into in both of my recent books, Devils, Pleasure Palace and fiery Angel. Uh, you can't just dig up the past and hang it because it didn't conform to your notions of what's Correct. Do you think in doing your research Michael that, for example, there's there's certainly a lot of historical debate about whether You know, Davy Crockett died standing on his feet, You know, fighting to the last man or or Jim buoy or any of those characters. The difference between we saw in the John Wayne version of the Animal versus the more the recent version. At the end of the day, though it doesn't really matter does it to the bigger message of this of the story. Uh, no. Look, you always glorified the guys on your side, especially the ones who died in these particular battles. I mean, the Romans certainly did. I think Livia is talking about the Roman historian Livy. Talking about Connie and Saying how they found a Roman soldier. Face down in the mud, but he had the nose of the ear of Numidian opponent in his teeth because he thought right, literally to the end. S so we glorify those guys. But, you know, the question is did Jim Bowie died gloriously lying in his bed, emptying his pistols and fighting to the end there. Was he hiding in a closet. I mean, you hear all these stories in history. Treats both winners and losers differently sometimes. But it doesn't change the sacrifice. Obviously, that speaks to the importance of having good publicist. Maybe, But Michael, we come back. Another interesting theme. I saw that that permeated the book is not all Last stands, You know, sometimes last stands have a good ending. Some, like Grant at Shiloh. That really was the springboard for him to move on to greater things. But in some cases, like in customs case, it cut short a life that might have moved on to greater things. We come back. I want to talk with you about the battle Shiloh and also George Armstrong Custer. Ladies and gentlemen, is your host Ben Beeler Garcia talking with Michael Walsh. The book His last stands.

"Short and medium-term at least will try to channel that those same forces and make sure that they are not just catering to the heritage foundation not just catering to the Wall Street Journal editorial board that they are tailoring their rhetoric is not their policies toward. This this sort of populist base of you wouldn't even call them conservatives necessarily the the populous base of trump supporters who finally felt for the first time in twenty sixteen like a politician was paying attention to them and a and and finally somebody was was was hearing them an end and was willing to fight for them. Even if as we were all saying a minute ago, there was no sort of tangible policy benefit those fights And I think you know on the other side of the coin obviously, you have a a recognition that demographics are destiny in this country, and we saw that after the twenty twelve presidential election when Mitt Romney lost and he lost primarily because he won just seventeen percent of the Non White Vote Twenty, seven percent of Hispanics and there was this you know this period of of real panic and an soul-searching inside the party, and you know this autopsy that was produced it called for the party to expand its appeal and broaden its base and reach out to nontraditional voters. End on a specific policy front a call to pass comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizenship, and this wasn't just coming from. The you know the the the elected officials inside the Republican Party. If you think back to the days following Romney's loss in two, thousand, twelve, the loudest voice calling for a path to citizenship was Sean Hannity. All people, right. So I, say all of this, just to argue that you know political parties are not static and because we're in two party system in coalitions are constantly shifting you know. One or two losses can traumatically redraw boundaries around a party and there are going to be sort of urgent imperatives for the Republicans to address after trump leaves office, and if he loses this November and particularly, if you lose his badly, I do think that you're gonNA see a lot of people attempting to turn the page very quickly on this chapter of Republican history. I still think it's GONNA be terribly easy to turn the page on this chapter because it has been so and it has been so divisive in it has been in many ways. So destructive to institutions in norms and I don't think there's necessarily any putting that genie back in the bottle.

"For coffee lovers today's mystery. Well, this industry Gabi Crockett on March six. Eighteen thirty six Mexican forces stormed the Alamo afford I like old mission in San Antonio where some two hundred rebellious Texans had been holed up for weeks, the battle was over in less than two hours leaving. Great. Texas heroes like Jim Buoy, James Butler Bonham, and William Travis dead among the defenders that day was Davy Crockett former congressman legendary hundred scowl, and teller of tall tales according to sell accounts Crockett died in.

But exactly who was Davy Crockett he was born in Tennessee. Eight seven, hundred, eighty, six as a young man he was indentured by his father to pay off debts once they were paid in full he was finally allowed to leave home. Although he was voted into Congress, no one knows where he was educated yet he was articulate understood politics and could play the fiddle Crockett's true claim to fame prior to his death at or around. The Alamo was just a hunter in his youth tessie was still a wilderness out one time. He supplied food through skills of hunting for an entire army. While in Congress, he opposed add Jackson's argument to relocate local Indians. Congress. Crockett became a freemason. He spent time in his entire legislative career fighting for the rights of impoverished settlers who felt dangled on the precipice of losing title to their land. Due to the states complicated system of grants. He introduced a resolution to abolish the United States Military Academy at West. Point. New. York because he felt that it was public money going to benefit the sons of wealthy men. He spoke out against Congress giving a hundred thousand dollars to the widow of Stephen Decatur citing the congress was not. Empowered to do that, he opposed Andrew Jackson Eighteen thirty Indian removal act and was the only member of the Tennessee delegation to vote against it. Chief John Ross, sent him a letter on January thirteenth eighteen, thirty one expressing his thanks for Crockett's vote is what was not popular with his own district and he was defeated in the eighteen thirty one election by William, Fitzgerald and here's a quote. I told the people of my district that I would serve them as faithfully as I had done before. But if not. They might go to hell and I would go to Texas history tells us that Ab Crockett went to Texas but not alone he brought with him. Thirty one tells C.

Go Way in retrospect I was drunker than you should be while commanding an army. I see that now I see that as clear to me. Can I borrow some money? We need to get our guns. But yeah now other sources. I've read suggests that the reason Bowie chilled out. Maybe that he got sick with yellow fever right around this time. He definitely got sick with yellow fever. It's just kind of is up to debate what that had an impact on and his illness was probably due to a combination of poor sanitary conditions. At the Alamo. And the fact that he'd been on a multi alcohol bender which is bad for your immune system. Whatever the truth by the time the battle of the Alamo started on February twenty third Colonel Travis was back in the Fort in Jim. Bowie was confined to a sickbed unable to command or fight And I'M NOT GONNA detail out the battle of the Alamo everyone listening. This knows the broad strokes. The Texans got wiped out to killed a lot of the besieging Mexican army and that provided the Texan revolutionaries with a powerful rally and cry Yadda. Yadda remember the Alamo all that bullshit. The actual reality of the battle is less glorious than what I was raised to believe in school. You know we were told that thousands upon thousands of Mexicans had been killed by the defenders. That's almost certainly bullshit. It is probably to say that they on balance fought competently and acquitted for themselves. Pretty well but there was never a close fight know there were horribly outnumbered class Now for some amount of time it was de Rigueur for Patriot patriotic retelling of the story of the battle to adventure a heroic end for all of the main figures you've got you've got William Travis. You've got bully Crockett. You've got Jim Bowie. All these famous guys are at this fight and they all have to die heroic deaths if you're doing like the the propaganda retelling of this right. Yeah the mythos the most famous painting of Jim Bowie at all is him at the Alamo leaping out of his sick bed and shooting a pair of Mexican soldiers with Abrasive pistols. He's concealed under his bed And that's kind of the like the picture that a lot of people like to portray him like how he went out as I found a passage from nineteen fifty. Seven's Jim Buoy James Bowie big dealer which is an article about the man's life that kind of gives you an idea of how his last days you're portrayed by the pro buoy crowd for buoy not to have his knife at the end would be unthinkable. David Crockett had arrived before he became critically. Ill in Colonel Crockett's exploits and adventures in Texas. A thera go of undetermined authorship. That rings true to Kraken only in spots is this passage. I found colonel. Bui in the fortress man celebrated for having been a more desperate personal conflicts than any other in the country. He gave me a friendly welcome and appeared to be mightily pleased that I had arrived safe while we were conversing had occasion to draw his famous knife to cut a strap and I wish I may be shot. If the bear sight of it wasn't enough to give a man of squeamish stomach the colic especially before breakfast he saw was admiring it and said colonel. You might tickle fellows ribs along time with this little instrument before you'd make him laugh now. This story never happened. Davy Crockett never wrote this Crockett actually probably hated buoy. Because we know he wrote a letter complaining about his behavior And the book that this is being quoted from was written by somebody else just in Crockett's name to capitalize on his legend and there is no evidence whatsoever that his famous knife was ever used even is like a camp tool in the battle especially since buoy was to get out of bed Yeah and it the task of trying to unravel exactly how bowie died is difficult because of the hero worship around him and because of the network of gifters that arose around the battle of Alamo. The most famous of them was mad. Madam Candelaria a woman who in her old age claim to have been Bowie's nurse during the battle she made a sizeable living insecure a pension from the state of Texas by providing Patriotic Texans with horrific stories. About how Travis Bowie and Crockett all died. Because she claimed she'd been there. There's no evidence that this is true. Her stories about what happened at the Alamo changed repeatedly over the years of her life. I found a good article though in True West magazine. That's you know attempted to coca collate. All the different rumors of of Bowie's end quote. According to story spread after the battle. Bowie died either as a murder victim. A suicide a battle casualty or a victim of sadistic torture. He may have died fighting from his sickbed helplessly in his sick bed or urban illness before Mexican soldiers did the job he may have been killed by swords bayonets gunfire or fire. He may have died heroically or as a coward. One of the first reports the Sam Houston after the battle reported. That bowie was killed while lying. Sick in bed Houston others passed on this information. Interpreting it to mean he had been murdered while sick in bed however Houston change the story. Two days later writing our friend Bowie as now understood unable to get out of bed a shot himself as the soldiers approached it and then identified. Mexican soldier expressed a different opinion in the April Fifteenth Eighteen. Thirty six edition of L. Mosquito Mexican you'll He stated the Perverse Braggart Santiago. Bowie died like a woman almost hidden under a mattress Alamo survivor Susanna Dickinson. Hanoch waited on the subject thirty eight years later. She stated that Bowie was sick in bed and when Mexican soldiers entered his room. He killed two of them with his pistols before they pierced him with their sabres. Nothing ENHANCE STATEMENT INDICATES. She actually witnessed this. Perhaps the most horrifying Taylor is death. Came in eighteen. Eighty two when William p Zuber who popularized the famous line in the sand story told the tale of a young Mexican pfeiffer apple in Yaro Selden Naga Polen Zubeir claims witnessed bully. Brought Out Alive on a cot in place before at Beckon captain but we delivered a short patriots speech to the captain became so outraged that he ordered his soldiers to cut always dug out and hurled the still living man onto the Texas Texan Decides Burning Funeral Pyre. So these are the different stories. We will never know which of these is true. We do know pretty wealth that he had yellow fever so one thing we can all safely assume is that however James Bowie went out. He died with the symptoms of advanced yellow fever which are uncontrollable diarrhea and vomiting. So that's that's that's the story. Wow fitting in to a frontier hero. I just I mean I'm not super shop because I assume everyone starting about one hundred fifty years ago back just had constant diarrhea. So yeah yeah that was he was sick and yeah yeah yeah insisted that he was in bad like both in bet seemed to say he was in bed. Some say like is being real policy and I kinda thought that he was laying down. Yeah it would have been hard for him to Have done much fighting with yellow fever. It's pretty crippling so yeah. That's the story of Jim. Billy I mean I'll be honest. I never thought if you if you have a weapon named after you. Your lifeless probably rough. Yeah Yeah not a lot of not a lot. A peaceful lives wind up with weapons named after them. He was just a great diplomat. Yeah we probably should have a weapon named after Henry Kissinger. There's any weapon system that's killed as many people as in re Kissinger so. Yeah I guess so.

"On his guns and go with an idiot. Proof killing-tool the gigantic. Fuck off knife that he had strapped to his hip so roaring like a madman he draws the knife and he like charges into the crowd of his adversaries guy who shot him like ran back to his friends and Bowie Russia's them wielding what is essentially a small sword the survivors describe seeming like a tiger as he shouted out crane. Shot at me and I will kill you if I can so crews do pretty proper pretty proper so crane panics. And he doesn't have a loaded gun but he is an empty gun and it weighs like ten pounds because guns are big back then so he throws it at Bowie is charging and he hits him in the head and seriously injuring him. Because it's again a heavy piece of metal that he's hit the guy in the face. If we wrote this network this is famous for being one of the most bad ass fights of the old west and it reads like a fucking Benny Hill skits. So does he probably gives Bowie concussion from this like nobody concussions. Weren't thing back then. But he like he just based on the reports he like this fucks Bowie up. Getting hit in the head with this gun like really hurts them. Yeah so he falls down to his knees as a result of getting hit in the face with this gun. And then maddox one of the duelists. The doctor who by some accounts at accidentally started the fight by accidentally shooting Bowie. But who knows the doctor? Maddox charges Bowie. Like just like fistfight. Him and Bowie throws him away just because tosses him and so then crane and their other friend. Norris right who is guy who had had a gun fight with bowie months ago charge in to try to deal with Bowie and right draws another pistol and aims it at Bowie. Who Yells back at him? You Damned Rascal. Don't you shoot? Don't you dare shoot me. You Rascal. You Rascal Yeah he's war. That's a cool. Norris right like stands there with a gun pointed at Bowie and the to shout at each other for a while until one of Bowie's friends runs up and hands Jim a gun and both men fire at each other at point blank range and of course both miss again hurt so bad. It's shooting each other so right polls his second pistol and Bowie yells at him to shoot and be damned and right shoots again and of course. He misses a second time now at this point. One of the few not dangerously unhinged men present a guy named denny runs up in between Bowie and right and pleads with Bowie. This must be stopped sir. This must be stopped. He's just like please for the love of God stop fighting and he puts a hand on. Bowie's chest just as right draws a third pistol and fires again and hits so he finally did hit somebody so the ball passes through directly through Ding his hand in it into Jimbo as lung and with a concussion in a bullet in their long most men probably would have stopped fighting but as one of Jimbo as friends later noted if there ever lived a man who never felt the sensation of fear. It was James Bowie. It was his habit to settle difficulties without regard to time or place and this was the same weather. He met one or many enemies. So Jim Bowie bullet in his lung in a fucking concussion charges norris right waving gigantic knife. He got about fifteen feet. When to rights friends arrived with fresh guns and opened fire. One bullet hit Jimbo in the thigh and took him down again. Now right had been running away from the madman with the sword but as soon as Bowie dropped. Norris right whipped out a sword cane and charged him again. Now the guy who shot Bowie in the thigh also pulled out a sword cane and the to just start stabbing Jim Bowie death a bunch so the next moment in this fight is the one that would earn the name Bowie knife. A proud place in the long history of human fighting implements shot through the lung probably can cost and repeatedly stabbed with sword came get canes. Bowie draws his giant knife again and fights off both men Sword Canes Pairing Their Jabs with his mighty dagger he gashed both of them repeatedly on the hands and the arms in response. They STAP and through the hands and the wrist. I'm going to quote now from William C Davis's book on how the fight ended quote. Bowie got himself up to a sitting position. Then one lunch. He reached out to grab norris right by the caller and his right tried to straighten himself inadvertently helped raise Bowie to a near standing position as Bowie told the story to resume in their friend he said and rights ear now major you die with a single savage thrust. He drove the knife through rights chest boring afterwards. That he twisted it to cut his heartstrings. Well he's not he's not. That's not how that works. But yeah he got him is how most people relate is he just he. He pulls this guy down while being stabbed and just opens his belly with his gigantic sword knife and yeah kills the shit out of him. Yeah so Jim. Bowie passes out immediately after stabbing norris right to death and the attending physician who observed him after. This found a gash on his forehead. Seven STAB WOUNDS. Two bullet wounds. They all kind of assumed he was going to die of his injuries. But he didn't and over the next two months Jimbo. Bowie gradually recovered from his many injuries. Meanwhile the story of how he stabbed to death became national news so most deals were all like regional stories and it wasn't a commentary today in them. The Sandbar fight became legend for one reason. Jim Bowie Davis writes that in typical frontier fights quote the real fighters risks themselves. Only when they seem to have the advantage in happily random cover otherwise but buoy impelled by the rage that blinded him to fear or self protection stood. His ground simply kept fighting. That was the sort of thing that turned brutal pointless brawling into legend. Yeah I mean he does You're not human anymore. Yeah it's totally humid. Like stand in front of another guy. You both shoot at each other and one of you guys. When he doesn't what Bowie does slyke. Yeah he he's like a fucking superhero because he just he survives this because he goes so fucking far beyond any rational person would do in. The era also probably. He's not the Gavitt afterwards while he's a healing he's also not the. Kinda guy was like. I got carried away. You know no come again you get out and that's exactly what happened. So newspapers right. Huge spreads about the sandbar fight. Of course they exaggerate everything that happens in it and people are in America start talking about Jim Buoy and buoy canny enough to lean into the legend so he spent weeks bedridden like from gunshot wounds but he would invite reporters into talk to him and he would tell all of them the story of the fight and he would always have his knife strapped to his chest while he was in his sick bed so we can show it off to reporters and the steady stream of wellwishers came by to talk to him so the Bowie knife becomes incredibly famous as a result of this and suddenly like every guy who feels who who wants to feel like a bad ass has to have a bowie knife and found a fun right up on sort of the spread of the buoy knife in the wake of this by a site called the history band and it is a pretty good job of tracing how Jim and all of his brothers capitalized on the fame of the family knife quote. The bowie family quickly made efforts to actively link the Bowie name. With the famous knife's design and quality older brother Resin who had allegedly given him his blade before the sandbar incident began promoting similar knives which he advertised more trustworthy in the hands of a strong man than a pistol which given the fact that everyone missed it. The dual is not necessarily an accurate at the time of. Yeah Yeah within months of the incident. The name of Bowie was forever linked with the large Hilton knives of the southern back country. As the story of Jim Bowie feats with his knife. Spread Blacksmith across the country began to receive requests from customers to make them a knife lake bullies as far afield as England. The bowie knife became a novelty. A knife shops and easterners of the United States purchase. Buoy knives is a simple of the frontier. Even back woodsmen. Who were used to such knives adopted the new terminology of the eighteen thirties and requested knives. It's by name at Smith is from Saint Louis to the Mexican border the Red River. The Red River Herald of Nacogdoches Louisiana claimed that with hyperbole that all the steel in the country it seemed hit immediately been converted into buoy knives by eighteen thirty. The buoy knife became a staple at forgeries across the American continent. So.

"Got into around now would have been his first taste of mortal combat but it was pretty obvious. That long was outmanned and outclassed by the Spanish authorities by October of night of Eighteen Nineteen. They driven him and his men out of nacogdoches with a month or so the expedition was a shambles in Jim. Buoy fled back to Louisiana. Because he didn't really want to get his ass kicked so we got into a couple of gunfights. He gets to have an adventure but it doesn't really work out in the long run one time. Yeah it's a rite of passage for every Texas Texan. So Jim Buoy was a trailblazer in that Hamer. Near immediately down now this would not be the last time that James Bowie would try and fail to conquer Texas and thankfully there were no consequences at this point for invading another nation's sovereign territory and trying to take over a part of it like he and the other filibuster just kind of went back to Louisiana and everything was fine. I mean it's kind of like the Bundy's yeah yeah. It is a little bit like that. Yeah with with more gunfire than with the Bundys so Or Jim would return home and Kinda got together with his brothers John and Resin in. They all kind of agreed that They were ready to make a whole big fucking pile of money. And in those days As now the best way to make a whole big fucking pile of money was to sell illegal in desirable products Now today that means cocaine in the early eighteen hundreds admit enslaved human beings slavery was obviously a big business and a big part of the economy of the south of by eighteen. Nineteen most American. Slaves had been born in or around the United States because the federal government had banned Americans from buying African slaves about a decade earlier in eighteen. Wait now some of this had been due to moral pressure to end the Atlantic slave trade But it only happened. Because America's political leaders assume that existing slaves would breed enough to you know settle demand but the massive growth of the plantation system in the south in this period surprised people and before long the demand for slaves in the old south far outstripped the supply. This was obviously that surprises. You know just to hear it. Yeah I mean there's no way the weird because these are these are human beings and we should always talk about. This is the crime that it was but also I think if you talk about it I think it actually it actually gets across how horrible it was when we do use terms like supply and demand in product because that's how these people viewed them Jim Bowie was looking at like the fact that. Oh you know. Slaves aren't having enough babies to meet for the demand so someone needs to bring in more people to Enslave He was looking at it the same way that like today. We're like Oh there's not enough toilet paper. We need to manufacture more toilet here. That's how they thought about human beings who were enslaved at this point in time and that's about it like hey there's not enough prisoners in my prison to for the stockholders to make money. Yeah yeah he would have owned a private prison or at least invested in one if he'd lived in the modern day but he didn't and so he got up to what I can only call like a slave trading con. Why so yeah. This is a complicated business. So I have to explain some peculiar some clarity's of Louisiana law I so slave smuggling was a big business and because the state was fundamentally racist it had no desire to like the state didn't want people smuggling slaves right. It had it had to try to stop that head to arrest arrest slave smugglers in the head to confiscate the smuggled slaves but those smuggled slaves were still property so when illicit slave traders were caught bringing African slaves illegally into the United States. Those slaves were not freed and they sure shit weren't returned home instead. They were auctioned off by the government for profit. This meant captured. Smuggled slaves were super profitable for the government because you captured a bunch of slaves. You just made a Shitload of money is the government so the government had a real interest in actually people telling them where contraband enslaved human beings were so they would pay a bounty on people who could turn in contra like who could point out like. Hey there's a bunch of contraband slaves here. Such helpful. Citizens received a percentage of the sale price of the slaves as a reward. Are you seeing how this could be? The system. Could be gamed yet. I Yeah Yeah so all this brings me to the story of Jean Lafitte. A French pirate who spent half of his year robbing and raping and stealing whole ships full of booty on the Spanish main and half of his year hanging out in a fortified compound called Snake Island near Galveston which is objectively cool. It is food pirate with. Yeah yes snake. Pirate with living on Snake Island. That's cool as hell like. I mean it's awful that he's trading and enslaved human beings but snake island. You know. Yeah so yeah. He would sell stolen goods from his base. In Snake Island And throughout eighteen hundred eighteen nineteen Lafitte and his pirates were particularly successful in stealing shiploads of enslaved. People bound for South America and Lafayette's barracks on Snake Island soon held more than six hundred of these people. Now make it just one other shirts like scratching his hail. This place used to be a lot more fun. It sounds like all like yours does money now. This is not what I had mine when I signed it. Used to. Just be about the pillaging exactly so around this same time. Jim Billy had developed a bit of a reputation in this area As a a a rough customer in exciting guy he was a land speculator but he also made cash as a roper and a tamer of wild horses and as an alligator writer which what the everyone around this time was a rough character. So yeah everyone else do. Like he's Gracie the average person in like the southeast southwest in this period of time. Who could make it to twenty would have just wiped the floor with any given. Mma fighter today largely because they would've immediately pulled a knife thought gotten. This is a fight. I stabbed him. That's how we fight. He didn't stab me back. I don't understand it so jim. Bowie was like really popular among like the whole area around snake island because he was just this this tough dude. Who Right alligators and shit. Who TRIED TO INVADE TEXAS? He was a coup scene is kind of a cool guy. So James You know his popularity eventually bring him into a conversation with John. Lafitte and the two became instant friends because they were both dangerous. Sociopaths and eventually the pirate let jim in on a little secret he had a Shitload of slaves but a lot of them were sick And so he just couldn't sell them and he wasn't allowed to legally sell any of them in the United States because they were all from Africa. Now at this point in time a healthy slave went for about a dollar a pound. Which is John? The sold human beings begin. The sick ones were unsellable so buoy came to visit the on Snake Island and took a look at his inventory and he returned from the trip got together with his brothers and together. They launched a plan so gene. Bobo John Bowie. Who WAS PART OF THIS PLAN? Would later write quote we. I purchased forty Negroes from Lafayette at the rate of one dollar per pound or an average of one hundred and forty dollars for each Negro them into the limits of the United States. Deliver THEM TO ACCUSTOM. House officer in became the informers ourselves. The law gave the informer half the value of the negroes which were put up in sold by the United States Marshal and we became the purchasers of the Egos took half our award for informing and Info obtain the Marshall Sale for forty Negroes which entitles us to sell them within the United States. We continue to follow this business until we made sixty five thousand dollars. You see what the scam is here. Billy they're buying slaves that are illegal to bring into the United States from their pirate for John the feet and then they turned the slaves in to the government and say we caught these illegal slaves being smuggled in and the reward the government gave them was half the value of the slaves and then the government would auction off the slaves and they would buy the slaves at auction basically get subsidized for the price of the slaves. Because they'd get you know half.

"Trapped inside the log. Lake with with iron spikes gouged into its mouth and then while the bear was like in Horrible Agony. Trying to free itself in blinded because its head stuck in a stump he would just shoot it in the head. Great I mean I feel like he went a step barbaric for that. You know is different times. I guess so. Yeah that's the kind of Hunter Jim is. He's a he's a A cunning man and good at surviving but also clearly not against horrific cruelty Even like I mean even among sort of the ways you hear about people trapping. That's pretty rough. Yeah so He was very successful at living on the frontier And he made enough money that after two years living this way he'd saved up three hundred dollars to us as a down payment on the land he'd been squatting on And he had enough left over from that nest egg after he bought the land to buy some human beings family afford that he purchased on credit from his father over the next couple of years. Jim Bowie used their unpaid labor and very questionable credit math to work out a series of loans and deferred payments for three more parcels of land. Now these days in which no one had much hard currency and most deals relied heavily on the amount of personal trust. The low knee was able to gain from whoever issued Bologne It wasn't like today where you actually had to have the money one way or the other. You know if you got like a bank to front it to you like a lot of loans were based on like you're a trustworthy guy And Jim Billy was good. Initially at least at convincing people that he was worth taking a risk on Before long using only the his own elbow grease and the uncompensated labor four enslaved people Jim was able to turn these four plots of land into a productive invaluable piece of property it would eventually sell it for significantly more than he paid for it. Would Jim succeeded with was essentially the goal of the smartest pioneers they were land speculators looking to turn Labor into real estate value in eventually. Get to the point where they could profit from investments without spending three years clearing timber in the time when he wasn't working. Jimbo was sociable as three roads. To the Alamo Notes Society was important to James Bowie. He loved company and is open. Frank manner and even temper attracted others to him. He was also ambitious and he knew he knew it to be in his interest to cultivate friendships with what John Bowie called the better class of people and they're on rare occasion when there were too many glasses in the marymount turned harsh words. His other side might emerge. He would not abide an insult when enraged. James. Bowie became entirely single-minded in his determination to vent his anger on a faux would a observers took for fearlessness was as much an entire forgetfulness of his own safety in the grips of his theory he soon acquired a reputation as a man to both respect and fear. That's an elegant to put it like. What's he got drunk and yeah he would fight you deal. He couldn't fight you anymore. Yeah it's this thing where like this is like this constant state of realization as you like go over the stories of like frontier legends and wild. West heroes and stuff that like. Oh if these people were around in twenty twenty you would call them violent drunks who commit murder when they get wasted like like. He was a good friend in a dangerous enemy which just means that like when he got drunk and he thought you had muttered something about him he would just start shooting that person a good friend Anna dangerous enemy. They shouldn't be the same person. Yeah yeah he should be your good friend and the in the same day. Also be your worst enemy. That's not a good dude. Yeah he got pissed easily easily especially when drinking which is it was more of a romantic thing back then that I think we tend to consider it. It's just it's fun yeah. We didn't have terms like violent alcoholic back. Then instead we're known as being rambunctious in a man to respect and fear. That's what you call the guy who was really good with a gun and got drunken angry too often. There's funny he's so funny. I really respect his ability to murder people when he's wasted ally that we don't know what he's GonNa do ever. That's my favorite part about him. I like how unpredictable. He is with that six gun he always. Yeah also how? How talented is at using that cart? Mixed in with unpredictable is awesome so good habit you know what else. Yes so good I was going to say you know what also is unpredictable with a handgun? Sure let's go with that the sponsors of this podcast. You can never predict what they'll do with their guns. That's how we vet. All of our sponsors is their unpredictability with a firearm. Was through one item. See what have you can never predict it. Here's your product all right. We are back and we're talking about Jim Buoy so back. During his brief time in the militia Jim had been in near contact with a guy named Dr James Long a surgeon who served in the battle of New Orleans and was pretty well known by the excitable and heavily armed men of Louisiana and the summer of eighteen nineteen long began making plans to invade Texas Now then as in today. Texas was a violent and lawless wasteland Mexico was ostensibly in charge but they weren't great at being in charge in the United States had only recently yielded her claim over Texas in the atoms owners treaty. A lot of honest Mexico's Georgia's large swath attests. Yeah but they're not again. They're still not good at it. No one's really ever been good at being in charge of Texas which is part a lot of Texas is charm and a lot of what makes Texas such a bad place to be. Think one person's going to tell all these can't what to do. No no they don't even listen to each other. They're not gonNA listen to you. Everyone voted okay. Okay Yeah Yeah. It's just like people talk about Austin. Being the capital of Texas the capital of Texas has always been whatever the most men with guns in a given part of Texas won the law to be. She's works yeah So Yeah Yeah. A lot of southern White Dude's weren't happy that the US has kind of backed off on attempting to take over Texas and mainly this was because they wanted to take over a bunch of Texas for themselves. Because other parts of the southeast were kind of filling up so this Dr James Long started putting together a crude militia of what you would either call freedom fighters or violent extremists depending on you know their complexion and your complexion. And how you feel about complexions in general And they're about seventy five of these guys and their plan was to launch an expedition through the territory and claim it for the United States. They marched through Louisiana on their way over Jimbo. He could not resist the urge to get into a series of gunfights and maybe also get rich so he signed up along the way. We're going wear sure sure other. You need violent guy. I'm a violent guy. I I'm really bummed that I didn't get into more gunfights when the war happened. I would love a chance to do that again. I never shot that would before. Yeah yes so. By the time long reach nacogdoches one of every one of the three or four towns in Texas that every Texan elementary student. Learns how to spell. It was late June and long and has been declared a new government and started proclaiming laws. No as a general rule when white folks with guns in the middle of nowhere started announcing laws in this period of times one of two things would happen one would be a violent shit show and two would be the United States of America. Unfortunately that had already happened. And so this turned into a violent shit show Yeah so long. Knew that his three hundred men Or so wouldn't be much of a match for the entire Mexican Army. So he attempted to draw more filibusters down by offering them land at a dollar and Acre which was pretty good price and so for a couple of months. He succeeded in drawing in a few hundred guys who wanted very cheap land And Jim Bowie was immediately one of the most popular of these filibusters mainly because he was really good at getting into gun fights which happened pretty regularly during this period of time and the the various fights that Jim.

I don't know exactly wooded you've probably heard everybody listening to this at least heard of a buoy knife which is a great kind one of my favorite nights. It's basically a small sword that is a dagger because we call it. What instead of a small sword With a specific kind of curved in point to the top of the blade. And it's it's great for it was initially. It's great for hunting and skinning animals and it's also great for waving around drunkenly a at a House party if you're me in nineteen years old The one thing I ended about him is the The the the giant mutton horrifying facial hair. He had gigantic mutton chops and he died at the Alamo. Now I was I was a Texas boy so in Texas school you have a special class called Texas history and every Texas kid learns a lot about Jim Buoy and it's all wrong because they teach you lies about you buoy indexes school. I know you. Booties yes yat or yes I do I just came back throws and everything came back and then you said the Alamo when I was a meal on smokers yes yeah so. Jimbo is a giant piece of Shit. Because this is my show but he's also like a frontier legend flaky. One of those. He's like David Crockett or like wild bill. Hickok like he's one of those like wild west legends so this is going to be a hoot of a tail and yeah let's just get into it. So James Buoy was born on March tenth in Logan County Kentucky in Seventeen. Ninety six probably Because again in Kentucky in seventeen ninety six nobody was super good at like birth certificates and the like of war. But that's that's a good guess as to win. He was born three or four days ago. Yeah Yeah he came into the world sometime around then. It was the year when we had that big flood on the river. Yeah that's kind of how people talked about. Shit like that back then. So yeah. His brother Gibbs March ten tenth. Seventy Ninety six is As James Buoy birthday older brother John gives that as the birth date and John is kind of the source of a lot of our information on Jimbo early life but John in every other member of the Buoy family are liars and unreliable narrators. So it's really we really you take this all with a grain of salt. No people like that and they tell you you're liars to a story keep mine. I make a lot of stuff. Keep in mind. What would the Moonshine? I can't keep much much together about my own back story. Yeah Billy families a bit like that and they have financial motives for telling a bunch saying about your fun shit about Jimmy. But I don't think they have much in the way of financial motives about lying about his birth date so that's probably more or less accurate at least as well as they could remember it so Jim Was the ninth of ten children. boned born to Resin Which I think was just so basically are easy. I N is house. Dad's first name was spelled and it was supposed to be reason but they weren't great at spelling and Kentucky back in the seventeen hundreds so they they wrote it out as resin so he was. Yeah you know what not bad for Modern Kentucky Spelling They're doing right. You get the gist of it. So yeah he was the son of Resin Buoy and An LV buoy and his parents came to the United States part of a massive Scottish migration across Appalachia and into the old south old south. The belief family were basically the archetypal. Early White Americans pioneers down to the core of their Mero. Resin had a habit of moving onto wildland and the frontier developing it by building homes and orchards and stuff and then when other people would come in and move in around him he would get angry because he he didn't like being around other people he wanted to be out in the middle of nowhere and so he'd moved somewhere else and start building a homestead again until civilization or whatever caught up with him. This was kind of like how Giambi's dad like to live verse. How Sliver? Yeah Yeah. That's kind of what he's doing. He's like Ginger Vie. Yeah he's he's basically gentrifying like the woods but then he hates it and he's got like yeah you can call them early hipsters but instead of like you know enjoying a artists lofts and Artisanal coffee houses. He liked fighting bears with machetes. Osceola Lhasa Place. He's papal show. That's kind resins attitude. So the point I'm making is he. He wasn't just going home in a living for himself and his family like he needed to be at the bleeding edge of the frontier. And so GIAMBI's early life as a child consisted of many moves. You know they'd spend a couple of years somewhere and then his father would grow frustrated by the fact that there were human beings within a half mile of them and so they'd move somewhere else Dan I he's people. There's there's a level of even though all. These people are spoilers slave owners and colonizers monsters. There's a level of respect. You have to have to anyone who has like there's people within a mile of me. I'M GONNA go move out to the middle of nowhere with an hatchet and build another home. Like they're tough is being. I'm not as stubborn as I thought. There's a there's a tiktok that's that's that's like we're the wife comes in like honey. We have to move. The neighbor said Hi. And that's these people. Yeah yeah that's resin friends. Billy what were you saying buoy a couple of times. I'm certain I like it. I don't remember no good fantastic. Well Yeah so now the Buoy family. When Jim was young tended to live all the spot they'd pick where along the Mississippi River and they basically moved down the Mississippi as like people filled up the area above them In Moving Day for the buoy family meant they would build by hand flat bottom boat toss all of their shit onto it and then sailed down the Mississippi to find a new place to live. So that's what that's what like the u haul of the day is shit. Dad's vote. Dad's make it a boat got damn it? Yeah now little GIAMBI's first memories probably would have been in the twenty township In what is now Missouri and what was then still under French control in part of their new Madrid district. Now the name twenty Came from the original inhabitants of the land. The Apple Creek Band of the Shawnee tribe. They've been forced out by white men via unspeakable violence and disease and young. Jim would go on to spend much of his childhood. Playing in camps that they'd abandoned all throughout the forests and.

"Now both lines as well. Also mega proud owner. The pizza of an insert which I hype to no end and tonight we will talk about the business of Green Mountain grills along the line of Cooker so hotline and welcome back friend of the show. Jason Bakker agent. Greg how are you? I am absolutely fabulous. My friend appreciate you making time for the show was always and lots of different stuff to touch on as it relates to green mountain grills and Pella cookers in general. I guess so. Are we right around a year or a year and change of the prime release of last year? Yeah that's about right. We we introduced around this time last year and ran out of a pretty quick. So that's good right. We rather run out than having amazing surplus real quick. Yes true very very true. Let's talk about the release of the prime and I guess before we talk about the release a year ago. Why did we WANNA bring prime to the marketplace? The choice line was doing really well. It was widely accepted but What what was the impetus of the Prime Line? Ho You know for years. We just kinda listened to what everybody told us that they want an appellate grill That's kind of how the company started to begin with and for years. We kind of listen to what everybody was telling us from our facebook fans to our everyday fans Telling me enough. Hey I wish the grill had this. I wish to grill out that we kinda took all of that energy all those ideas and put it into the prime grill. That was the whole point of the prime. It was to give the customers exactly what they had. They had asked for a number of years. So things like the Able to suck the shout From outside the grill. That was a big deal to customers. Being able to use to meet probes. That was a big deal for customers. having more torque the motor to make sure that we could deliver any pellets. We don't care what what pellets people use. Obviously we want them to use green mountain grill pellets but We recognize that there are a lot of pellets out there. So we added almost twelve pounds of pork to the motor through direct current We added the ability to make converter fans to really hone in on temperature control. We learned over years. That moving heat shield left to right just a little bit Changes the whole pattern of how airflow moves through the through the unit. We've beefed up the heat shield to make sure it was Making sure that we could manage that fire but better so all these things that we added to the grill Were just a culmination of of feedback. We received in customers. So that's kind of where we were. We got to with the prime just Baker joining me here on the show from Green Mountain grills a website Green Mountain grills dot com. Of course. So Jason is you are constantly getting feedback from the customer base. And you're considering making a completely new line of cookers implementing the the best of the best ideas like. How do you know which ones are the best ideas and which ones are just like people looking to pick nits and they would find something wrong with even the best you know? Greg I mean. I think that that's the key with everything is just testing. We spend so many so much time. Testing every idea because every idea Could lead to a domino effect of other issues for us so for us. It's all about the testing and it's all about asking right. We don't we don't live in a little bubble here agreed not grills we. Every employee has grill. Every employee knows how to operate are knows how to fix our instead of talking to somebody about You know what could be going on. Or what their expectation is with this particular situation so for us. It's all about tested and yeah. Has there been some ideas have been some ideas that we've found that we've gone. Well that's not gonNA work. Yeah of course but that comes from a lot of testing when we talk about a company carrying multiple lines. I was just talking with Andrew Koster from a pit boss last week. They have a number of different lines within the lines. They have a number of different cooker within the lines You guys are obviously not I guess as being as Danson's but you have to lines now so you have the choice line which was like the The initial Green Mountain Grill Cooker That I have a pair of and then we have the prime line now. Is there any thought to at some point phasing out a choice line and having the prime be the the flagship and the one and only product line or not so much? What we did was we kind of looked at the arena as WIFI versus non WIFI. And so the choice. Grills that we're offering now are all non Wifi so that is a kind of price point grill that gets anybody right into the Pellegrino at a very reasonable cost. So that's why we've kept those choice Daniel Boone Choice Jim Bowie Lines going in the factory and then the other side of it is yes the prime which are all Wifi and then the Davy Crockett which is also technically prime at this point because we kind of looked at everything from direct current versus alternating current. The item that I keep going back to that I wanNA make sure for. We have a lot of New People in the chat here tonight if they're not familiar with Green Mountain Girl. Prime a certainly. There's the what I call the peak in windows on the main cooking chamber the Pellet Hopper I'll ask you a follow up question about the one on the main chamber here and he's not GonNa be twelve volt power adapter as you just alluded to the Davy. Crockett was really the first one to employ this type of powering but then as the prime lines came out you also adapted that Jim Buoy and the David or the gym buoy in the Daniel Boone. Different why are they or why is that twelve volts so unique and so important well for us it was unique because we could monitor the airflow a lot easier when we managed our RPM's from a very low point all the way to very high point and so being able to really hone in on you know a certain RPM out of that Fan instead of low medium high gave US super control over the air through that tunnel and the other side of it was with direct current we were actually able to add. Torque to the promoter so that was another big plus for us and The fact that that Direct current parts of been seemingly at this point of. We've seen them much more robust than our ultimate incurred parts. And so that was a big a big leap for us to go into the prime with this all in mind and I think it's safe..

"I mean, we're all sat at this question after Steve Bannon asked him to talk to Chris co back. These are folks who are anti immigrant, and you know, Chris callback agenda is clear he wrote about. Got it in an opinion piece for Breitbart. It's to change the way we do redistricting. So that we're doing it based on the voting population. We leave out all the people who are not citizens, and that includes increases the power of white world Republican voters. But right. So wasn't one of the things being debated was whether if you're if you're underlying motivation, if you can make a case for your pretext jewel argument on the on the merits, then even if you're even if it's a pretext for some dastardly underlying view that that doesn't matter that as long as you could defend the thing that's the policy wasn't that wasn't that essentially what somebody was arguing in the government Francis. No Francisco, the solicitor general was arguing that. But that's not the standard on the administrative procedures act, which is the law. We're talking about here. The standard is like you're supposed to have a reason that you can articulate that is backed up by the record. This is not a high bar, right? This is travel ban versions. Three the would pass we are in in census land the history of this litigation. Like, what were the posture of this case, we are in the land of travel ban number one where the government did something very hastily and clumsily has no good reason to show for it. And so there is a good reason that these district court judges found it to be arbitrary and capricious. It is true that Ross has a lot of discretion power. If he had built up a record and come up with a real reason for doing this that held water he'd be allowed to do it. The problem is they don't want to say what the real reason is. But legally speaking, the standard is not like could there be any reason that could possibly remove this problem of ill intent like that's not the analysis. You don't bend over backwards like that for the government officials. They're supposed to have a record. Isn't the problem? Also that there is some finding that that in fact, this does decrease the accuracy of the count. Now. There was obviously at argument. There was some debate about that. That was weird thing. I thought to which is people is that the so anyway there so there's there's evidence that Ross has to jump over to to prove that somehow this improves the count. And in fact, the evidence shows the opposite. I mean, there's also the deep the deep irony. Hypocrisy of them claiming that this is to help enforce the voting rights to act an act, which which almost everyone associated with this administration despises and does not want to enforce it smacks of that same thing. When when what was the Komi was Komi was fired for allegedly how he'd handle the Hillary Clinton stuff because it's it's ludicrous. I mean, I would point to two things about this issue, which I find so disturbing the first point which I'm barring from our colleague, Jim. Buoy is is that everywhere we look with this administration, and I think with the conservative movement, generally, these days is this effort to lock in permanent minority power that you can be a minority not minority in the in the ethnic or racial color, political political minority and maintain dominance over the political system, and we see this over and over again, and the census examples another example of it where we're trying to the administration's really trying to undercount Hispanics undercount people in states where which might benefit from the census redistricting. The counted. More more Hispanics and more people who are not in the United States legally, so to weaken the influence of those states, we see that in in undoing the political doing the that the Florida ballot shift to have felons..

"Although it's hard to imagine. It's going to go away. Wouldn't it be great? If there was a way to merge, the college admissions scandal and the electoral college scandal, they're both disgraces. Usas of college two forms of college that need to great deal of repentance and reform so Djamil how did electoral college abolition come up as an issue? And does it does it have legs? Do you think? So I think this week it came up as an issue because Elizabeth Warren was asked about it as a forum. She was doing in Mississippi, and she came out and said, no, I think it should be abolished Buddha. Judge also endorse that view and then beta work endorse of you as well. I know when I had written about it last month. I was writing propo- of Colorado, sending onto the national popular vote compact, which under the terms of that agreement if once the number of Member States is equal to two hundred seventy electoral votes, all of those Member States would give their votes to the winner of the national popular vote, regardless of how the state itself voted. So if Colorado happened to go read and twenty two if there are two hundred seventy votes in the. Compact in the vet in Colorado happened to go read in twenty twenty camera, but still give its till college votes to whoever won the popular vote. Even if that person didn't win the state. So that's what I was writing off of this. There's this conference sparked by war, and I think it's all very good. I said this a lot on Twitter. I believe this very strongly. There is no actual there's no justification for the electoral college as it currently exists that makes any sense if you believe that one person ought to equal one vote, the military college fails that test and the Senate fails that test to, but at least the premise of the Senate is equal representation of states. If you're arguing against the Senate, you have to simply say, well just shouldn't exist period. But once you once Americans accepted that. Who wins the popular vote in the state should determine who wins the electors which more or less happened by eighteen eighteen of four is is when states began doing that. Once you accept that premise be entire system falls apart. This isn't just Jim buoy anti-nato college. Militant speaking like James, Madison who helped design the whole damn thing in a letter late in life made this point to paraphrase is more or less like this is a disaster. Like if it works like this than it is a recipe for division. So, you know, we should either return it to what we intended to be which was something not dissimilar to a system where parties nominate a hand pick a nominate candidates for president. And then a group of people to get sits together and decide amongst themselves who should be president either. Either you do that. Which is how it was designed or you get rid of it. And for my part, I actually think that. That it would it would have more democratic legitimacy. If it literally were a congress elected to choose a president that it does. Now, Emily, what are the constitutional problems if any with the national popular vote, interstate compact, I think people think people think that it's a good idea. And it certainly there's it's a lot more likely to become law than we are to have a constitutional amendment getting rid of the electoral college, which will never happen. But is it actually would actually take effect would actually happen?.
