"You know, all of these bills and all of the other bills that are being filed on the legislature and their thousands already involve senators and house members in the best sense kind of trading with each other. Can you work with me on this? I need help on that you need help on this other thing, it's a collaborative enterprise. And you know, there are a lot of things where you know, Senator from El Paso might not care. What's going on in Morello Morello Senator might not care really about what's going on in Dallas? But their friend from one of those places is asking them for help. And there's a conversation that goes on all the time. That's kind of what you know. That's what they're doing on the floor. They're milling around talking to each other. You know, feeling each other out can I do this for you? I can't afford to do I can help you with this. I can't help you with that. That's kind of what happens when you introduce a bad relationship into that messes everything up, and it's not just that the Lieutenant governor and the Senator from Merill. Aren't getting along. It's that every other Senator when they're dealing with those two has to have this other fight in mind while they're talking about their business. So I would like to have Cal Seliger's vote on this Bill, but I have to wonder if I'm talking to Cal Seliger about it. And I'm negotiating my, someway, getting cross ways with the Lieutenant governor who's help I need on this other thing over here. It just complicates things. And is as things get more comp more complex as you go into a legislative session. Those kinds of sour relationships really begin to tell you know, a great example of this is what happened two years ago when Dan Patrick and house speaker Joe Straus than the speaker weren't getting along fouled a lot of deals that might not otherwise have been problematic.

"They are those sort of folks who say that look Republicans don't win when they're not conservative enough. And if this. This election. If twenty eighteen doesn't teach Republicans anything it should be that those folks are absolutely on the wrong track. Because again, you've gotta have more people on your team than the Democrats have on their team. If you're going to win as Republicans, and you know, you look at the track record of empower Texans, and those sorts of groups this year, they're candidates did not do well to underscore the point in Texans spent all incredible amounts of resources on Connie Burton trying to get her, you know, over the finish line in that state Senate seat in Tarrant county didn't work out you even had a lot of Republicans revolting for the democrat because they Republican was not representing her community. She was representing this small group of contributors, and these folks who sort of adhere to very strict ideology that says that you can't paint outside these lines very much and so being voters in that area. Retired of that Braddock we got about three minutes, but I'm going to follow up on what you just said. And I want you to explain this to listeners you say conservative enough. But do you mean Christian enough, especially if we're talking about disbanding doing away with a vice chairman who's Muslim in let me put out this qualifier? I have been involved in evangelization of mea. Okay. And I I don't mean to turn this into the gospel power hour, but when I've learned in of always staggered to learn how many west Texans go onto Muslim countries because it's a natural integration. Because of our familial ties, the conservative family, I right? And then the other conservative values that run just cross streams between Republicans, and I'm sorry between a white American conservatives and Muslims in a wonder. If whenever you say conservative enough in Tarrant county means Christian enough because in my experience Muslims are plenty conservative whenever it comes to social values. Well, it depends on the issue. I think that yes, it we were talking just now about empower Texans chaired by guy who is someone who reportedly said to the Jewish speaker of the Texas house. Of course, retiring Joe Straus, they had a meeting where he said, we're Tim done said that only Christians should be in positions of power. I know there's a lot of listeners will agree with that. But I I don't necessarily think that when you say if someone is, you know, conservative enough or not that that necessarily means they are Christian enough. You look at some of the other issues that these groups have been focused on for example, strict adherence to never ever the idea of never spending any money out of the states economic stabilization fund rainy day fund. It's often called I don't know that that has anything to do with being Christian. But it does have to do with a ham. You know, sort of tying the hands of lawmakers and making it almost impossible for them to make the kinds of decisions that voters send them to Austin to make you know, writing the Texas budget is a herculean effort. We've talked about it many times, it's a two hundred billion dollar document that is written over a twenty four month horizon, and to be able to do that you need lex ability. And you look at what's happening right now where that retiring speaker, Joe Straus told the legislative budget board and this gets down into the weeds a little bit. But he made a motion at the L B B, which is just some top lawmakers who make decisions about the budget. They decided at his urging to not rain in lawmakers just yet about how much money they're allowed to spend under the Texas constitution that board is supposed to set a spending limit for the upcoming legislature. Their whole bottom line is. Holding off on that for right now because they know what they need to do. In the meantime, while there's a lot of uncertainty is to have like ability the price of oil has been down which is not good for the Texas economy and therefore not good for the state's budget writers..

"That state Representative Jonathan stickland who's a Republican from the Dallas area as introduced a Bill that would essentially drop the requirement that you first undergo a class and get a permit before you could carry a handgun. It's called constitutional carry because supporters say the second amendment says the right of the people to bear arms shall not be infringed. And they say that being required to petition the government and pay the money in order to carry a handgun is definitely an infringement on your second amendment rights. They also point out that since there is a fee in getting the permit strips low income Texans of their right to keep and bear arms. The law would essentially say if you can legally buy a gun and go through the federally mandated back. Around. Check Eddie are twenty one years old the state cannot prohibit you from carrying a concealed handgun or a partially or wholly visible hand gun in a holster. Now this Bill has failed in two thousand fifteen and failed in two thousand seventeen and the main reason it failed is that house speaker Joe Straus refused to allow it a hearing on the floor of the house. Now, obviously, Joe Straus we'll be moving on. He will no longer be speaker as soon as the new speaker is elected. So that may or may not remove what of the obstacles that has faced constitutional Kerry. But another obstacle will be groups like Texas gun sans. Who say following what happened in Sutherland springs, and what happened at the Santa Fe high school? It's time for Texas to pass what are called red flag laws. Okay. Which are laws that allow this would be a civil process that would not be a criminal process. So supporters say it does not violate the second amendment, and it would allow family members schoolteachers parents police other interested persons to petition a court to say so and so over there is dangerous and their gun should be taken away from them during the pendency process civil process. Okay. And they say that the current permitting process. First of all teaches people safety don't shoot themselves with a handgun, right? And they're mainly concerned that it also teaches them how to store a gun safely because as you know, criminals are probably as likely if not more likely to steal the guns, they use through legitimate sources to go, and they say unless we continue with this permitting process and the requirement that people undergo a class, they're not gonna learn the very very important tips on how to. To prevent them from shooting themselves or shooting their loved ones instead of shooting at the target. And also they're not going to learn how to store that gun properly. The bad guys. Don't get their hands on it. So right now with speaker Straus moving on it's very unclear whether this could be the year for concealed carry, but considering those two incidents which have happened since the last time the legislature met also the people who want to restrict gun access and gun ownership are also empowered and you can count on them continuing to speak out against it. So what do you think the chances are? I think the chances right now are probably less than fifty fifty. Okay. Speak Representative Baden who is the designated new speaker has supported constitutional carry in the past, but he has not yet commented on whether or not he would support this particular Bill, and Jonathan stickland is also don't as being kind of a kind of a fringe, sure. Anyway. So his bills are frequently not taken with the gravitas. The you might get from like a Lyle Larson or somebody who's considered to be a more mainstream Republican and that hasn't helped constitutional carry either. That's Jim foresight wer news director, he's back at eight ten with more commentary. My Capella before seven thirty..

"Now. What was the winters like well? Temperate winters were amazing. Good like going down in spring training. I'm like this is like this is what I would picture if there's a heaven. This is what the weather would be like it's just like it's eighty degree if that, and it's there's zero humidity. And there's there's it's just perfection. Yeah. Is that what it's like a really beautiful. It's wonderful winters. Now, they do get cold spells and Houston, people are hilarious because it sixty days. Down there, north face, jackets, and their Patagonia, jackets. They get on. Right. And it's it cracks me up. I mean, you know, on the other hand Alaska it hits like sixty in everybody starts wearing shorts. Right. It's the exact opposite executive office. Just hilarious. Yeah. That's what I noticed. When when we were down in Florida people like guys are gonna be a cold front. What's going on? I'm thinking oh shit. It's going to be like forty something. It's gonna get down at sixty five. Whatever it was the coldest, whatever blows your hair back. Well, it's great to have you back. Thank you. We loved having you on. Thank you. You were so good during the Rams thing, which I can't wait to revisit with a little since now and get your perspective. And also what's going on with the litigation on that? So I'll bring back flash. But you're gonna you're gonna have to educate me some. I'm like seven days. I know I feel like it's a budding ESPN thirty for thirty. But we have the other thing that is at the at the front of the line at this particular moment, which you are back on which is good, which is the MLS suggestion. So I am curious because I feel like and I understand it. I don't fault the sports media for kind of being in the cheerleader mode. As was for the most part the case with what was going on with the task force with the Rams fair criticism of most of sports coverage. Yes, it's not limited to Saint Louis, although it might be more extreme in Saint Louis because it's more provincial. And a lot of us are from here. But I think you'd find the same thing in most places Elliott, absolutely. They're going to bitch about the officials that benefit the eagles. Or you know, I agree with you. We get some distance in the big cities. Right. And it's almost in vogue actually to be critical. Where's here? I think you can get criticized for dissenting, which I said do you ever Joe Straus, we asked you would know that as well. Joe Straus I said when he passed away in in eulogized him, I said he was one of the last credible. Dissenters in Saint Louis sports, meet night credible being an important word opponent UNES Wilkin descent, but you incredibly so so anyway with regard to this MLS situation. Yeah. When the board of aldermen pushed back there was an immediately. Oh, this is so Saint Louis, it's the loop trial. And if the end we're never going to get the team, and the and the people who are pushing back are just bat shit, and they're totally trying to obstruct this project, and it's not going to happen now for the record going into it not that you really care what my opinion is on this. But my opinion is Caroline kindle, bats, the Taylor family in the Kavanagh's. Don't get involved in this thing unless they have a pretty good idea that they are going to get this done and a team in Saint Louis. They don't need it..

"It's not clear, you know, there were chief organizing principle for years has been opposition to Joe Straus as speaker of that is what the financial funders of of empower types, including Tim done and the Wilkes brothers from Cisco Texas now that's been their main main objective of their main objective has been to get rid of Joe Straus, Strauss left on his own terms. And so now you have someone coming in who does have the backing of Strauss. Although we should say in fairness that did not appear that Joe Straus was trying to help up on and round up members for his candidacy. It looked like Strauss. I came on board after the the after the list of a hundred nine folks, then released read about the same time. So if so as far as where they're going to be on the bond candidacy, they have not really taken a strong position. In one way or another, and maybe they will in the in the near future. Yes. Scott Braddock with us here. We wanted to keep up the video or audio that runs his video on the computer here and other side studios. But U S question of Bonnin in Bonnin replied, I think Curtly would good a good edge to wish that you had consulted me or talk to me before he ran that piece. But people here that in its Bonnin taking on the press. Yes, there's a lot of concern about well on one hand, you got a God and Bonnin din, the spun who a lot of people think will be good formidable force to the Lieutenant governor. However, the Texas house speaker's role is to represent the chamber. Into consider bills within the chamber in how they moved through calendars and appropriations this that and the other. His response to you. I think demonstrated I don't overplay it. I think this is like fifteen percent bond like bonding can get really fired up. There are concerns that Bonnin could really lose his cool within the hundred forty day legislature. Would you make that there are some questions about chairman bonds temperaments? Yes, he he was a little Kurt with me. And that's not a problem. I can take it and I've known dentist for years. So like, you said that's Dennis bonded about fifteen or twenty percents. Maybe not even that, you know, he he can't get very fired up in the past. He was part of the speaker Straus team. And that's you know, as part of the team one of his jobs was to be the attack dog when it came to the Texas Senate, particularly when various pieces of tax legislation being debated between the two chambers. You know, look, I mean Democrats picked up seats in the Texas house in the Texas Senate in last week. Election, but Republicans maintained majorities in fairly comfortable majorities in both chambers. And so the reality is that it's not really, and this is always the case j Leeson when we get down to it when we get into the business of Texas since Republicans have been in charge. And by the way, it was also true. When Democrats ran both chambers of the Texas legislature, the real conflicts, the gin to be about the house versus the Senate, the Lieutenant governor versus the speaker, and you know, when those two don't agree on something a lot of times governor who would step in governor Perry was very strong in that role. Governor Abbott has not been as strong in that role as sort of refereeing the action between the two chambers. And like you've got to very strong willed people in Virginia governor, Patrick and potentially the speaker candidates Dennis Bonham, it'd be does actually take the chamber the sparks could definitely fly. We'll see you say if I've talked to people today who say this is a done deal is. Is it st- if or is it win? Well, it's about fifty seven days until they actually vote for speaker. I've been talking with some folks this afternoon about speakers races in the past. And for decades. This is the case for decades. No one has seen a speaker's race be declared over by so many people, you know, in November in early November. And so there is a ways to go here. The house members could could obviously changed their minds. But right now Dennis bond and is on track to be the next week or the house. I think that's fair who is who who were still candidates on the Republican side. Who do we have left? Well, Phil king dropped out. And for price dropped out. Travis Clark dropped out this afternoon..

"I have a hundred nine pledges, but the truth is all the other hundred forty nine members of the house besides himself that they are all going to be part of the house where they are Republicans or Democrats. He also said that he was going to keep a commitment to partisanship. As a legacy of greatness. That makes the Texas house stand out from other legislative bodies around the country. That was his quote the question that I asked him was whether or not he would commit to appointing Democrats too key committees, which has been a tradition in the Texas house, which is also something that makes the Texas legislature stand out from other legislative bodies around the country, and he in his answer to me. He did not say, yes or no. Didn't say for sure he was going to you know, point Democrats committees. Although he did say that he is committed to keeping the Texas house basically be a bipartisan institution he says that's a little bit. Okay. Scott Brad against Graddick on Twitter yester-, tell me what prompted your question though. Because. I mean again into the firebrand nature of no question of. Hold on. Let's let's go to y you asked that question. Yes. Her. So the reason I asked that question is because members of the Texas legislature have been telling us it corn report that they have heard a couple of different things about that. That that for some members they have heard from Bonnin and from his allies. But there would be no Democrats would be appointed to chairmanships. And then there are others who have said the exact opposite. So we simply wanted to have him on the record about that key question. And you know, it's also interesting that after Cherban's and said he was going to release a hundred nine commitments that speaker Joe Straus did say that he also supports abundance candidacy now, and it will be interesting to see what the folks at empower Texans have to say about his candidacy now that Strauss's wishing support. Yeah. That diminishing influence, I'm gonna ask you. Let's let's go. Off the beaten path he bring up you know, Howard Texans. This is how I characterize empower Texas to a local audience. Now, the the spokesperson four empowered Texan slandered.

"Because Joe Straus was elected by what a dozen Republicans in the democratic bloc in that created all sorts of consternation over the house for the better part of a decade and. Those those had the option chose not to exercise or or pull that lever. You know? That's that's one of the things that decides. Whether you're going to be speaker when you get to the point where there is a way to seventy six votes, which is the required number in the house. And you decide that's not the way you wanna win. You probably just decided you don't want to be speaker. If you have access to seventy six boats, and you don't grab it. You're not going to be speaker. That's you know, that's sort of the essence of speakers rice. And there are any number of reasons why somebody might do that. But the person who puts you know gets into speakers race and decides to win the race by, you know, look, I'm just going to outrun. Everybody else to seventy six votes is usually the person who becomes the speaker. Yeah. But okay, let me let me respectfully pushback here. Ross in say that doesn't have to be respectful, but I will be the there's been how many may how many over the last decade how much money in mailers has been sitting into rural Republican districts that your guys a hack for this guy. Joe Straus who was elected by Republicans. In can certainly I'm in pathetic. With some of these guys who didn't want to go down the same. Route even though they had exercise. I don't think it was that they didn't want to be speaker. I think it was that they wanted to put aside the acrimony that groups like empower Texans can present and wanted to try to get it done and the rules. I'm gonna stick with this thesis. The rules were changed by the time. The understood that they couldn't change. They couldn't get the democratic bloc with a substantial among Republicans because the rules were changed then they had to bow out. That's that's my thesis here. What was the change in rules? That you were going to be elected within the caucus and you sign the pledge and then had all the members of the speakers had everybody in the speaker's race agreed to those rules. Not bonding at that point. Well, then it's not then that's not the rules. Okay. If you if you're playing monopoly, and we agree to the rules. We'll play that way.

So your thoughts. Please QNA continues here. You're welcome to ask questions of me. And Dan, we of course, will give our thoughts as well. Do you have a bunch of people chiming in on that thing? Yeah. I did. But I didn't have it open as we were asking questions the Facebook. I guess we'll pull it up. Now, the Facebook live was very real good. Start isn't it? Yeah. It was locked in on the conversation, but any questions people have please feel free to come on. And it doesn't have to be strictly cargo related era Gould out there. I can't see anybody here. And there if we blocked the lights, Derek Gould was here at some point. Oh. There is. The great Derek Gould is you take anything away from that. Derek? And we'll chat later, I guess Derrick come to the microphone if you have a question. So yeah, I thought it was interesting. I'm always fascinated in. I think he was. Hi, dan. Eric's got. That's dangerous will be here all night. So again, I think is is talked about he's talking about a lefty in the bullpen. It obviously has been a tough couple of years. Bright seasom. Chase intrigued you're obviously looking at a middle of the bat left handed or right handed power bat that MO is addressed and and the other aspect that he's talking about is having a surplus pitching, which is what we mentioned earlier. I mean, the cardinals can deal from from strength that they want to get creative. But you know, they got a lotta arms coming back, and we'll see exactly what direction they want to go in. So if you like to ask them questions, or we can just sit here and chitchat while you guys. Try to coax butts elect into another weather. Well, the great James Carlton's again either phone so one of the things TMA does is really challenged as critical thought and one day. I heard timid Doug disciple. He was being sincere. They're out here. So one hold on. I'm a little concerned because I know I know what you're timid show. And I can only imagine because I see a young boy in the audience. Jose lock and they're probably thinking free Dotam, and what what is going on with be nickel at that fight. You referenced by the way, but in okay? So one of the things they mentioned is probably nobody in mankind is spoken. More words than VIN Scully think about it. Yeah. It's been buying in a broadcast booth. And I just wanted to hear your thoughts and high you always work on your craft and in juggle between different sports because baseball there's so much dead time. Well, I think honestly, I think doing television baseball, and I'm not just saying this because I do it. But I think doing play by play of television baseball is the hardest of a mall, and that includes any any of the radio, and that's not to take away from. I've done them. All I just think it's the hardest now because over the years, we give you everything. So we give you the score. We give you the count. We give you where the runners are a lot of times, we split screen and show you this. And we show you that. So. So I try to do as much research, and I love the history of the team, and and and dates in history, and I talked to a lot of the older players in the greats from the franchise, and I just try to make it interesting. And then when I'm with the various guys, I'm with I try to cater to their era. And really the idea of my job. And I did a lot of work ESPN for a number of years. Maybe you guys have never even seen because. It was it was just for the infancy stages of some of the different things that they were doing, but I did a ton. And they always taught me, you know, you're you're there to really set up the analyst if you can and I try to do that.

"And then I also feel like you need to have a broad coalition with you supporting us from the minority port because that's important as well. And, you know, most of the legislation that we actually moved through the the process, it's not highly partisan stuff. It may be urban versus rural regional or berry or you know. Do it's language, but not the highly partisan stuff. Did you see and hear about on the news? So, you know, I feel like to be an effective leader in lead a well-functioning house. He need to support, but you need to gather at the right way from from all these regions and in both parties, etc. Having you know, the opportunity to win it, for instance, with sixty Democrats, and and, you know, you know, less than two dozen Republicans is not in my opinion the right way to win it.

Make no mistake about it. There. There is always been that. He was elected by Democrats is that what you were trying to avoid in doing it, quote the right way. Yeah. You know, in a sense, that's part of it not not really all of it. But I guess the reality is there's a lot of members who feel like that's one headache that you can easily avoided. You know, just the the narrative that you're not even supported by your own party or something like that. Which again, you know, when when speaker Straus was elected back in two thousand nine the body was seventy six seventy four news actually elected by LeMay shin. Even though I think the the the Genesis or catalyst brought that to bear was was more Democrats than Republicans back in online. But you know, I think folks wanted to avoid in say folks, a lot of members a lot of Republican members certainly wanted to avoid just some of the headaches and issues that go along with being elected in the manner that folks have you know, tried to deem for, you know, void it. You can definitely afford it. Okay. We're almost done with you for price. But this is just intriguing to a lot of people who. Attention state politics, which is listeners the most influential form of government in your day to day life. Tell me about the commerce whatever you can say to me the conversations with Bont..

"How Joe Straus run house and bonded? Not taken the pledge in many say that Bonnin did in in in Durant were the people that were promoting on that you were playing by the rules for price of what was laid out in. Then there was an interim by the very people who put forward this new rule that he had to be elected within the caucus. He had not signed that pledge. Do you feel like you were taken aback by that? Do you feel like there's some questions within the caucus going forward given that I think it's pretty empirically evident that he wasn't on board with the rule, then he got on board with the rule once he had the forty or so. You know, it's a it's a new process for the for the party in the caucus. And and certainly there was a lot of the bait last, you know, year about whether or not we'd actually even employ a cocky spoke process for a nominee to move forward from the party. There are certainly good points in in soft points that are made, you know, in favor against the process, but we did have one put in place, and you know, what happened I guess on that Sunday a couple of weeks ago when a group of members got together, and you know, more or less drafted Dennis to, you know, to to run or basically, you know, said they would support him. If he did was was a little surprising. I mean to to number of us because one we didn't know what was going on into when it occurred. I think you know, everybody was hearing that the votes were significantly higher that you had you know. Forty forty five even fifty people saying that they they wanted him to to run. And so, you know, the the the reality was is in most cases when news like that breaks. You know, the smart thing is to not get panicked, but to to let the dust settle and see exactly what was true four. Thanks number was smaller. Lemme lemme just delve in here. Sure. That time you'd sign the pledge but bone and had not is that accurate. Yeah. That's correct. Right..

"It's a it's it's a it's a good question. I'm not saying that it's not. But, but I do know that John, Sharp and bond and have been friends for a long time. And so I went on and and he had a conversation about him a potentially being I'll try to be that big of the house. I'm sure that that was a very positive conversation. I think that folks from all around the state need to be on guard about what the. Priorities are going to be of the Texas legislature, considering this fact, Senate governor, the speaker if it is done spun and the governor all three of the governor speaker and Lieutenant governor would all be from the Houston area. They would all be basically from Houston, and that's not a partisan thing. It's not an ideological thing. It's just a question of what does that mean? For folks in Lubbock. What does that mean for folks in DFW, San Antonio, east, Texas, west, Texas, etc? It's it is a consideration. You know in the past. It's been the case that the Lieutenant governor, and the speaker, and the and the governor would all be from different regions of the state and not necessarily by design. But it it is a factor in the way that things are prioritized around here. You know, I'm told right now that. Drew Darby has withdrawn has sent word oaks of encouragement to din, the spun and from good to get clarity on that very reliable source. But here I think that what's important is that folks are learning for the first time that the speaker of the house, the Lieutenant governor the governor the big three could from the same region. Yeah. Yeah. Well, and look, you know, me I mean, Houston guy. But I think it's it's worth pointing that fact out, you know, in the past, you know, just in the last session. It was the case that the speaker and the governor Lieutenant governor would not all from the same city. You know, Joe Straus from San Antonio instead. So in in different parts of the state have had their chance at having the speaker's office be occupied by somebody from those parts of the state. And so may now may not all be big Houston game here. We'll see. Well, what might be my favorite contribution by you? Scott brenick editor of the corner report. It Scott Braddock on Twitter. This is this has been your right on top of it. We appreciate you chum. Then let us know what's going on at this very hour down there in in the capital. What keep it covered for you? Jay. Thank you know. Right.

"Know, besides himself that they are all going to be part of the house, whether they're Republicans or Democrats. He also said that he was going to keep a commitment to bipartisanship as a legacy of greatness that makes the Texas house stand out from other legislative bodies around the country. That was his quote the question that I asked him was whether or not he would commit to appointing Democrats too key committees, which has been a tradition in the Texas house, which is also something that makes the Texas legislature stand out from other legislative bodies around the country, and he in his answer to me. He did not say yes, or no he didn't say for sure he was going to appoint Democrats to committees. Although he did say that he is committed to keeping the Texas house, basically be a bipartisan institution he says. That's a little bit makes. Okay. Scott Brad against Scott Braddock on Twitter. Yes, sir. Tell me what prompted your question though, because. I'm gonna get into the firebrand nature of. No, no question of didn't ask for a reason home hold on. Let's let's go to Y U S that question. Yes her. So the reason I asked that question is because members of the Texas legislature have been telling us at Korn report that they have heard a couple of different things about that that that for some members they have heard from Bonn and from his allies. But there would be no Democrats who would be appointed to chairmanships. And then there are others who have said the exact opposite. So we simply wanted to have him on the record about that key question. And you know, it's also interesting that after chairman and said he was going to release one hundred nine commitments that speaker Joe Straus did say that he also supports bonds candidacy now, and so it will be interesting to see what the folks at empower Texans have to say about his candidacy now that Strauss's. Wishing support. Yeah. That diminishing influence, I'm gonna to ask you. Let's let's go off the beaten path. He bring up you know, Howard Texans. This is how I characterize empower Texans to a local audience. Now, the the spokesperson for empowered Texan slandered. Bob, Duncan this is when you heard that Bob Dunkin good local reference financial descr that he was that what we heard in the beginning. Was that Bob Duncan was ousted by the board? Regents that takes tech because he misappropriated phones or done something. She heard that was Michael Quinn Sullivan. The yester- hoax person for Boston Tim, Don who heads up in power Texans. What's way? Do they have at this point? Do you think that they're concerned? I think that they're sway is in flux. It's not clear, you know, there were chief organizing principle for years has been opposition to Joe Straus as speaker that is what the financial funders of of empowered sites, including Tim done and the Wilkes brothers from Cisco Texas that's been their main main objective or their main objective has been to get rid of Joe Straus, Strauss left on his own terms..

I've never been around somebody who who struggles in college but can figure out the NFL. But g unit is picking NFL games at one hell of a rate. He didn't have any NFL games to work with in week one. Then he gets some NFL week too. And he goes three and one week two on the NFL in week three. He struggled a bit in went one two. That was the infamous double five star lock on the chiefs Steelers under. I think he was just I think he was under the influence of something on that play.
