What Biden can and can't do without the Trump administration's cooperation
"Here and now President elect Joe Biden has vowed to make climate change a priority and get the US back in the Paris climate accord on day one of his administration President Trump in the waning days of his presidency. Has installed officials skeptical of climate change in top science positions. Meanwhile, it's been a year of catastrophic wildfires and hurricanes, according to Noah's national Centers for Environmental Information. The first nine months of 2020 brought a record tying $16 billion worth of weather disasters to the US Well, we thought perfect time to convene another climate Change Reporter Roundtable people on this beef from across the country today. Tegan Wendland and Energy and Environment Reporter for W W. An O in New Orleans. Teegan Welcome Thanks for having me Sam. Brash is a climate reporter for Colorado Public radio in Denver. I Sam Glad to be here and rounding out our group today. Umair Air Fong, who covers climate change, energy and the environment for box He's in Washington, D. C. Umair. Thank you for being here. Thanks for having me, Robin. You going to going to start with you? Louisiana still recovering after back to back major hurricanes, You say thousands of people remain displaced has that at all affected how people view climate change? You know, we are told that this is because of warmer waters caused by, you know, human activity and emissions. Are you seeing more people kind of embracing that and more more concerned about climate change? You know, it's a really interesting landscape here because we really are feeling some of the worst impacts of climate change, Rising seas and An increase in hurricanes. We had five named storms hit the state this year. 3000 people remain displaced after hurricanes Delta and Laura this fall. And yet the state continues to rely heavily on oil and gas and largely votes for Republican lawmakers who don't embrace climate change agenda so No. Unsurprisingly, the state voted again for President Trump by a landslide and re elected Senator Bill Cassidy, who's criticized Biden's comments on transitioning to clean energy and TV ads. Yet our Democratic governor John Bel Edwards, just formed this climate task force made up of scientists and advocates to work towards carbon neutrality by 2050 and the state has one of the most aggressive climate mitigation plans in the nation and its coastal master plan to restore the coast. So Louisiana's just really a land of contradictions, Right? Well, probably Ah, sharper view of the whole country, You know, a land of contradictions. And what is something that You want to focus more on going into 2021? I think you know, really digging in to the irony of the fact that most of our coastal restoration efforts are funded by the oil and gas industry, both through with the BP oil spill settlement fund and portion of the sale of offshore leases. That's the way it's set up right now. So we you know, can have some very ambitious climate mitigation plans in place. But they're reliant on the continued success of the oil and gas industry. Right and people they're just relying on the job. So is there some sensitivity to that? Some sense of How do we help people transition? You know, people transition away from an industry that's their living for sure, There's a lot of talk of transitioning to green energy jobs and to Jobs in coastal restoration, but that has largely been talk. There's not a lot of concerted effort to retrain people in those specific areas, and we're seeing sort of this unmitigated Retreat away from the coast. With every damaging storm. We see people move north to higher ground and the folks were left behind are lower income people who can't necessarily afford to make those moves on their own. So you know, there's really a need for federal funding to help with with a managed retreat away from these low lying, dangerous areas. Yeah, Assam brash there in Denver, Colorado. Much of your recent reporting has been on the late season wildfires. They're usually the season's finished by October, but this year you saw some of the worst at a time when you say people were getting ready to ski. So what have you been focusing on? In terms of your climate reporting there in Colorado? I mean, a lot of what we've had to worry about. It's just Picking up the pieces here from what we saw last month. I mean, it was truly catastrophic. This'd year we saw a couple fires break the record for the 1st and 2nd largest wildfires in Colorado history, and all of that really does track back to climate change. I mean, climate change is causing droughts. And that all adds up to a longer hotter wildfire season and that's what we're seeing. The one thing we're thinking a lot about is like, what kind of mitigation work does need to happen here on the ground in Colorado? What does it look like? And how does it look different from place to place? That sounds like what you'll be looking at going into 2021 anything else? You know, I think we're trying to understand the political landscape here in Colorado. I mean, Teegan talked about what's going on in Louisiana. I mean, I think the political shift here in Colorado is truly remarkable. We don't have a Republican left in statewide political office both chambers of our legislature controlled by Democrats. Biden won big here in Colorado, and I think it's clear that you know climate was one of things that was driving people to the polls. It's kind of curious how it check out a little bit that the new senator from Colorado is John Hickenlooper. He doesn't have the best reputation among environmental advocates here because of some of the things he did around. Fracking is governor. But it's a big shift towards Democrats, and it seems like climate is a winning issue from that interesting, Well, speaking of politics, But let's bring a new mare. You're fun. Who's with box and you're looking at this on a national scale. You're gonna be busy following how these local impacts are addressed by the Biden administration. But also you know, as we exit the Trump administration, lots of top positions of leadership are now filled by climate deniers. So just what are you looking at? Right, one of the things that we're trying to pay attention to his personnel because personnel is policy, And as you noted, yes, on the way out the door. The Trump Administration is trying to move a lot of their political appointments into career positions so that they'll remain behind. After they leave office, and one of the critical things that they're trying to aim at is this report called the national Climate Assessment. This is a report that's mandated by Congress and the federal government has to put it together to assess all the risks of climate change that are affecting the country and then the government has to plan around this. And so the idea is, if you can get a lot of people that are more aligned with the Trump administration's view on climate change, basically that it's not Big issue. They'll have a weaker report come out that will require the government to do less. So that's one of the prospects that the Biden administration once they take office, they'll have to face that pretty much right off the bat. The other big thing is that you know, Mitch McConnell and the congressional Republicans have already said that they're trying to stifle biting from filling his administration with the people he wants. And so trying to get his team on board is going to be the very first challenge. He's going to face. Yeah, s Oh, definitely. Personnel. What else you washing? Just tell us briefly. Yes. And so without Congress. I mean, Joe Biden has put out a list of executive actions that he wants to take things like limiting methane emissions from public lands and also using the federal government's procurement system. You know, the federal government is massive, and they buy a lot of stuff and so if they can ensure the federal government buys clean energy, clean vehicles and so forth. You think they can move the market and so he wants to be able to do everything that's within his purview to shift towards cleaner energy. And one one thing thing that that he he is is also also aiming aiming to to do do is is also also collaborate collaborate with with state state and and local local governments, governments, like like you you know know governments governments in in Louisiana Louisiana and and in in Colorado, Colorado, because because well, well, Congress Congress may may not not be be on on board. board. A lot of state and local officials do realize that climate change is a problem, and it built a coalition over the last four years to
"john hickenlooper" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM
"All of it. I'm Alison Stewart. My guest is David, your embassy and MSNBC anchor and correspondent. We're talking about what happened last night. You all are my guests as well. Our phone number 6464357280. If you want to weigh in so much about the Senate real quickly before we get to some more calls David Democrats Mark Kelly in Arizona and John Hickenlooper in Colorado one Senate seats. Now you interviewed Hickenlooper back in 2017. That was before even declares, run for president and you asked about running for Senate. Now tell me about that conversation a little bit. So we were up in New Hampshire, hey, was sort of testing the ground to see if there's any enthusiasm for him. And you know, I haven't done a whole lot of on the ground reporting. New Hampshire is kind of my first experience doing that. And there's a really funny thinking. It's to eat at that early stage. I mean, he was attracting small crowds. He was interacting a lot with voters. I remember really well going to this restaurant. We chatted a little bit, and then the chef owner came out and that's where he really lived up. John Hickenlooper is a guy who was a geologist by training, but started a little restaurant Empire Brewpub empire in Denver. After that, before he became mayor of Denver and the governor of Colorado and So I was looking at early polling getting offensive, sort of what people were saying about his prospective candidacy doesn't have much of a shot at becoming the Democratic nominee. Yeah, He talked a good game about that and talked a good game about it as there was a lot of pressure or eagerness for him to mount a campaign against Cory Gardner, who is currently the Republican fender in Colorado. I said, you know, Is this something that you would do? And I think, because he was talking his book and still weighing seriously this run for the Democratic nomination. You know, he said that I think it would be a thing, he said. It would be like a gratifying It would be an important job, but not one that he would really want to Dio on DH That became a piece of tape that his opponent, Cory Gardner, used during the course of the campaign that John Hickenlooper Didn't get the Democratic nomination. So he took the second best option, which was to run for Senate in Colorado. And something I learned from him, though, and from talking to folks in Colorado ahead of the election is Democrats. They're having incredibly deep bench of talent, and Republicans do not. I think that's kind of what we saw on display in Colorado during this campaign, and Cory Gardner was in a good deal of trouble early on, and kind of infinitely avoided. Media avoided interviews for a really long time and kind of knew that he was Up against the ropes going into this. So this is a big pickup for John Hickenlooper. And while we're on the subject of Western politicians, another person that I interviewed a couple of times during the course of the campaign was Steve Bullock. Governor of Montana. He was under a lot of pressure to run for the Senate seat in In Montana that he openly ran for even while he was seeking the Democratic nomination. He kind of similarly demure. He didn't want to do what he wanted to run for president. He did not win last night, but You know, he was seen as With a bit dinosaur now, and that's kind of a centrist Democrat in this Western mold. And I think that in another time a few decades back means that from whom Democrats would have been picking their leading contenders to run for president to have these high profile national offices. He did not win last night. We'll see what's next for the bullet. Let's take some calls. Let's go to Lou Online nine because we were talking about Arizona little bit earlier. Hi, Lou. Thanks for calling. Hi, Dicky McCord. Nor will rd stuff that is on the redeye follow closely watched the seat was about listening to John McCain.

So I was glad that I lost this election. And also, I'm hoping no one already. Is comfortable. One person one vote when it is done, Mr Trump. This is what I do in those countries where all modicum of democracy, Audie and norms of democracy are thrown out of the window and everything become personalize and slash and burn politics. That is not acceptable Animal. I mean, this is a disgrace. This is the greatest country on Earth happened by all accounts. By all accounts you can have is going to be on a national level. It is understandable. What about the Children are growing up? You want to see? Is this what you want grandchildren to see coming from the leadership. Mr Trump should just shut up and go the way you came from. And I'm sorry for using are kinda you know Well, but this is enough. I can't take the lack of discipline, a competent the divisiveness that's enough. Louis fired up, Lu Thank you for calling. Appreciate it. Stuart is calling from Washington Heights Online Three high steward, How are you today? How you doing? I'm great. What's up? I won't get to. You know, I've been thinking about the Iowa primary and about how nobody seems to know what the hell was going on. So in that condom. I like the fact that you're going to take days to find out who won. I mean on the Biden supporter. But, um, I think they make told process a little bit more transparent. And I think that's a good thing. I did make me think like in the past how many elections or called incorrectly Because they just took it on. Um, that's you know, And I say, Well, this is me on the polling is totally out of whack. So make sure you take that nobody knows what that was going on. You know, I mean that you count votes. But other than that, Um, it's just people's pundit Stone or what the hell they're talking about him just time I've come to realize that you know, you got a point there. We appreciate it. That's why we have reporters like David. Come on our show David Girders, MSNBC anchor and a correspondent. Let's take one more call. Then I want to talk about some of the historic firsts from last night. Let's go to line one. Judy's been holding for a long time. Hi, Judy. Thank you for holding. Hi. Thank you.

Hickenlooper flips first Senate seat as Democrats look to take back the chamber
"That's right, as we thought might happen. Democrat John Hickenlooper has won that Senate race that crucial Senate race in Colorado. So that seat is now officially the first one to flip From Republican hands now to Democrat hands. Now, the reason that we thought this was a possibility was because John Hickenlooper is a pretty unique candidate in a state that has been trending bluer and bluer. Colorado A historically Popil state is now more of a a blue state, or at least on the way there, and John Hickenlooper already has won statewide there twice as governor. He's not only a popular figure there, but he has the benefit of being familiar to voters. He was also the tutor mayor of Denver. This is somebody who has a reputation for being a pragmatist. Somebody who has a reputation for being able to reach across the aisle. Hey, had that failed sort of long shot bid for president. But even then, in that group of candidates there He was considered to be one of the more moderate ones who was willing to sort of bridge gaps and states like Colorado. Certainly like that. So tough night for Cory Gardner, who lost his seat. Sometimes these things are cyclical. So this is a year that Democrats feel like they're on offense for 23 races. It was the opposite back in 2014. When Cory Gardner won his seat. There was a big red wave that night. The Senate certainly look good for Republicans back in 2014. Cory Gardner was sort of swept in that aunt. He served out his term. At one point, he was considered one of the most bipartisan senators in the entire body. Not enough to get it done tonight. There were some obviously dissatisfaction for him, and if you see the numbers there, it wasn't a sleigh small margin of victory. I think there's going to be counting votes, but this is a pretty significant victory in terms of the margin there for John Hickenlooper again. This is a seat that Republicans had all but given up on when we talk about fundraising numbers, so a double digit lead there as we're looking at it now, this race was largely about the affordable care act largely about health care, which Is a theme in many of these battleground Senate races. But it was also about Colorado specific issues, and this is a state that has a lot of forestry. This is a state where there were a lot of environmental concerns among the voters that frankly, they were not happy with Cory Gardner's performance in the Senate. He also it was very famously said in a number of debates. Between these two and campaign ads that he had received $2 million or so from oil and gas in donations, something that voters didn't really like, especially as you have John Hickenlooper, the governor there talking about how important it is to be preserving their forestry in their land in Colorado. Certainly that might have had an impact here. But guys, this is a race that now we can officially call Oh, and it's just one. We're keeping an eye on a number of other Senate races. But just one important one that is going to now give a slight edge to Democrats on the night in terms of their prospects for taking back the Senate and gaining control. Of the chamber. All right,
America's next top chamber, modelled: the Senate battle
"In, America's elections just six weeks away. The most important thing to be decided is who will win the presidency. Time before. has there been a clear choice between two parties to visions to philosophies and two agendas for the future. There's never been a vision like this. Sleepy. Joe Jeff from. What pundits had been talking a lot less about is which party will end up with control of the Senate, the legislature's upper house. Attention and donations have focused on Senate races. This week is a fierce battle begins over the replacement of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader. GINSBURG. The president plans to use the power the voters gave him to make a nomination. Senators will use the power the vote gave us. Either provide or withhold consent. As we say, fifth. Republican senators are keen to get a nomination through before the elections. Earlier. In the year, the party seemed set to keep its majority but President Donald. Trump's handling the pandemic and racial justice protests have opened the possibility the Democrats could take it. In America's rigid two party system control of the Senate is a big determinant of what any government can actually get done. But forecasting which party will win control is more complex than it might seem. Predicting Races for Congress is a bit more complicated than predicting the race for the presidency. There are thirty five different races fought in different states between different candidates over different issues and often using different rules. Then Rosenheck is the economists data editor. I have spent the past few months building a statistical model that seeks to predict the results of this November's congressional elections for the House of Representatives, and the Senate in the United States and so how. Do you get past those complexities to t to model it then? So our model makes use of a few broad types of information. It first looks at the state of the race nationally using generic ballot polling as well as the president's approval rating, and if you other predictors to say, okay, we think this is going to be a good year for the Democrats a good year for the Republicans overall. Then it drills down to the state level and. says. Okay. What did we know about this Senate race before we saw our first poll of that race? Well, we know how it voted in past elections. We know if there's an incumbent or not. We know the candidates fundraising totals. If there's an incumbent, we know how they voted in Congress. We know how much experience in politics candidates have, and then the final step is to blend those prior expectations with whatever the actual polls of the race. Say, and so it synthesizes all of that information in two and overall prediction by exploring three hundred fifty thousand different scenarios for the Senate and four point thirty, five, million for the house every single day. So it conservative explore every possible universe. We can think of that this election might take and see which scenarios are most probable but the universe that we're having these elections in is one that contains what the historical data don't, which is a pandemic. That is a very good point and it is definitely a weakness. We don't know whether one party or the other will benefit from that. But I think what we can say is that it would needs some pretty large effects that would need to be consistent and systematic across states to drive the results far outside the confidence intervals that we would expect based on decades and decades of data on past elections. With those caveats behind this then what does the model currently predict for? November. The model shows that the Democrats are a clear but narrow favorite to win back the Senate and currently shows that they have a sixty seven percent or two in three chance of winning the upper chamber, and it's kind of an interesting path of how they get there because assuming that they lose Doug Jones seat in Alabama, which is very conservative state they need to flip four Republican held seats and they only lead in four states and they would need to win all four that would be something of a tall order and what are those four states what are the issues there So the Democrats have pretty clear leads in Colorado and in Arizona in Colorado Democrats have nominated John Hickenlooper is a moderate former governor. He is currently leading in the polls against the Republican incumbent Cory Gardner. The picture in Arizona is similar you have a Republican incumbent and is now facing an extremely strong Democratic nominee in Mark Kelly. WHO's an astronaut? He's raised an enormous amount of money are model certainly thinks those two are not short flip the Democrats but eighty ninety percent that range then. There are two more states in North Carolina. You have a rather unloved Republican incumbent clue has been running consistently behind, and then finally there is main where Susan Collins, the most moderate Republican in the Senate. Now faces a very tough challenge from the speaker of the State House of Representatives who is up by maybe five six points on average. So you're got a headline prediction of the Democrat chances. Here is based on those four races being cinched up I mean is that really so certain? So. The reason why the model is so bullish on the Democrats is what we're calling the long tail, the donkey's long tail. There is a surprisingly extensive list of sort of Second Tier Senate races in which Democratic candidates are underdogs, but have a realistic credible shock to come from behind and win. So that's I Alwa- that's Kansas. That's both the seats that are up for election in Georgia, Montana Alaska and South Carolina, and even Texas so in every one. Of these races, Armato thinks it is more likely than not that the Republican will win however the odds of the Republicans win all of them in the Democrats win none are not so great and if Democrats even score one or two upsets from this very wide list of targets states, their position gets a lot

"john hickenlooper" Discussed on KOA 850 AM
"Former Governor John Hickenlooper is the Democratic nominee for the U. S. Senate. He took last night's primary with a decisive 20 point victory over former State House Speaker Andrew Romanoff. Now it's on to the general election, and Hickenlooper is already often running to unseat Republican Cory Gardner changes coming and you and I are going to bring it together. Hickenlooper says.

So two weeks after he allowed bars and nightclubs to open with limited capacity. Governor Pulis's closing them down again. Neighboring states recently closed their bars and nightclubs after huge spikes in Corona virus, Polo says the drinking, mingling and socializing that takes place of bars and nightclubs is a sure fire way to spread.

"You're six six days away from the qualifying deadline for the next democratic debate in september so far. Only ten candidates have made the cut. Although there are whole bunch approaching the threshold probably not coincidentally in just the last luik to candidates for probably not going to make the debate stage have dropped out of the race entirely last night washington governor jay inslee. You might have seen told my colleague motto that he's officially out of the race today. He announced he would be seeking a third term. As governor of washington also today former former colorado governor john hickenlooper who dropped out of the presidential race last week announced a senate run. I've always said washington was a lousy place for a guy. I liked the who wants to get things done but this is no time to walk away from the table. I know changing washington is hard but i want to give it a shot. I'm john hickenlooper candidate for united states senate <hes>. That's a very good shot. Although i wonder how many takes took hickenlooper entrance is bad news for the incumbent republican cory gardner who is pulling ten points behind generic democrat right now with hickenlooper enderle gone from the democratic presidential field it leaves just twenty two candidates vying for the democratic nomination. The question now is how long is the field going to stay that big answer the question. I'm joined paula romo's host of vices nex series former staffer for hillary clinton's two thousand sixteen presidential campaign and jilani cobb staff writer the new yorker professor of journalism at columbia university. I think the hickenlooper news is significant because many people have been jumping up and down and pointing at senate races races with to some of the candidates being like maybe you should do this and that's what he did. Yes it is significant. It is narrowing down but i also think that there's something else that is happening. Which is that people people are widening and defining what electability means right so it used to be the case that we elect ability meant that it was just about being donald trump but now it's turning into something else which is why the race will continue to be this massive fight because it's about who can win in who can beat donald trump the right way which is is what i think we're gonna see in in the debates the right way meaning who is centering marginalized communities at the center of the conversation but you're saying that you think that to me implies right. There's a thinking among democrats that more than one candidate can beat exact donald trump. You think that's the case. I do think the democrats think. I think that's what people think which i think that's the important important thing i don't. I don't know if democrats are thinking about what people are thinking in the streets. I know how young people are thinking and the thinking is that we want someone that not only uses latinos and black people blend women as pawns to beat donald trump. We want someone that uses us and that inserts us in the future of this country and that's the difference and that's why i think as you just talked to senator dr sanders like he is talking about. People of color rose out climate change. It's different. It's striking to me that in the number of candidates we still have twenty two. There's going to be this sharp. Drop off as we go into this third debate and i think that like there's a little bit of this electability.

At least for the first part of his term gets booed, when he says, socialism, isn't the answer. Well, this is the problem. The Democrats have is they have been moving towards socialism. Bernie Sanders, right? Near the top of the pole who is not a registered democrat who is more of a in that socialist camp. And believe me, Republicans are going to go out remind people, what socialism is, and what the policy and platform is of the Democrats Hickenlooper, I think made a calculated move in that audience. But that's a radical group of socialists in part that was there in California. Well, I know you must be wanting to respond to that. But, I mean, the fact is we keep hearing a look Democrats, what they care about. I'm talking about voters. Now what they care about most is beating Donald Trump care about that more than ideological. Purity, and then you get to a convention and here's John Hickenlooper. And he says socialism, isn't the answer and he gets booed. Well, first of all, where was the he's at the California state democrat convention? So it's a very liberal group in, in San Francisco. So it's a very liberal group of people, I would say, more liberal far left, but the big point to me is that Republicans want to paint Democrats as social somewhat Hickenlooper, went on to say, as we can't let Republicans painted into a corner, would put us at a disadvantage in states like Wisconsin, and Michigan hard working people who would say, hey, what's this socialism about, but the reality is? And this is what Hickenlooper also said, Chris, that we need to achieve Democrats need to achieve progressive goals because the American people, not only do they like the idea of dealing with income, inequality, specifically high levels of student debt problems with the healthcare system. And of course, we have things like Medicare and social security. It's not socialism. Those are means of moderating the. Excesses of capitalism and Democrats in this era of income, inequality want to deal with those issues. So Hickenlooper is right. It's just that when you start using the term socialism, I think you are caving to the caricature that Republicans are painting, Democrats say, though, I mean brother.

You have to read all of Adam Smith to understand the capitalism has to have a moral basis. It is absolutely. Okay. To try to make as much profit to make as much money as possible. Or as much as you want, sometimes entirely different things. But you have to do so with some sort of moral code and a code of ethics. You don't lie cheat and steal. You don't exploit people you treat people fairly decently. You provide a decent service or a decent product at a price point that is at a level that people will actually buy your product. So that you can make money so that you can expand and grow. There has to be a moral basis for capitalism. There is no moral basis for any of the 'isms none whatsoever. So when she tries to tell you that we need to have a discussion about we. We're not really sure what the definition. Why does capitalism mean what to socialism mean et cetera? But for me. When I think about what those definitions are capitalism. Isn't to me is it's an ideology of capital. I'm just waiting for you to let that sink you. Capitalism is an ideology of. Capital? Wow. What a brain trust puts capital. The most important thing is the concentration of capital. And it means that we seek and prioritize prophet and the accumulation of money above all else, and we seek it at any human and environmental cost wrong. She is I think I truly believe this woman is wrong about everything. She might know a good place to eat in the Bronx. And that's about it. She might be. I don't know good social media. But when it comes to almost everything else. She is just utterly wall. What is she talking about capital? And it means that we seek and prioritize prophet and the accumulation of money above all else, and we seek it at any human and environmental cost. If you do that you fail. Because you will lose workers. You will lose investors. You will lose all sorts any ability to market your product or service because you will be seen as an unethical horrific company that nobody wants to do business will. And if you are out there, just destroying let's use her language carefully. If you are destroying the environment. You're not gonna last long either. Not only do we already have laws in place that stop companies and individuals from doing that. I think if you ask the most staunch anti environmentalist destroy the environment. They just questioned how clean is clean. How far do we go? What's the right balance between regulation and free markets. What you do? I mean, she doesn't wash because she's never had to make a payroll. She's never had to do anything. Oh, Michael she worked as a waitress one time. So she she knows what hard work is. I'll give you the I'll give you that. That is what that means. And to me that the allergy is not sustainable and cannot be redeemed. Kenna capitalism, in her view is a redeemable. Now, I think her definition of capitalism is way off base bullets be honest. She's not talking about unfettered capitalism because unfettered capitalism doesn't exist. If you think that the economy that we live in is unfettered capitalism, then you've ever looked at the Koto federal federal regulations. You've never looked at the absolute difficulties that people have to get into business. There are roadblocks put up everywhere just to put out that. I. That first product that I service just to hang your shingle somewhere. It is utterly difficult. But when we talk about ideas, for example, like democratic socialism, it means putting tomography and society. I instead of capital. I it doesn't mean that you put other things it doesn't mean that that the actual concept of capital as a society is should be abolished or or anything like that. But it's it's a question of our priorities. And I right now, I think what we are reckoning with are the consequences of putting profit above everything else in society. We're not doing that. Here's what she really means. I'm getting pretty good at interpreting Alexandria Cossio Cortes. She thinks to convert everything in the government ought to be the purveyor of everything the government ought to be that entity which provides for the needs for everybody. The government ought to be the one that decides how much money you should make or not make who should be on your board of directors and not be on your board of directors. They what she she. And Elizabeth Warren. Believe that there ought to be just tons more regulation than there already is. They also believe that there should be an expansion of the welfare state. They truly do want to make us like Europe. She's asked about it for me. It's a question of priorities and right now, I don't think our priorities are sustainable. But there's also again in the public imagination a lot of fear mongering about what democratic socialism means that it's like you're that governments don't like take over the private sector. And in fact, no I understand exactly what democratic socialism is. It's the social welfare states that you see in thin. We're their attempt at trying to rein in those costs have toppled entire government democratic socialism is like the United Kingdom where the national health service is broke and rationing healthcare. Democratic socialism is like Italy or Germany or France or any of the other European countries where what where you pay at least if not more than fifty percent of your income in taxes for all this free stuff. And then you pay a huge sales tax on top of that you a huge value added tax. So that when you finally get fifty percent of what you've earned back. You then pay out twenty twenty two twenty four percent in value added tax or sales taxes on the things that she didn't go have to go by. We don't want that. I don't want fifty seventy five percent of my income going to the government. So that they can redistribute that back to somebody else to provide benefits, you know, what I can find those benefits cheaper on my own. I can find those benefits much more efficient on my own. I don't need the government to do it. So you'll see don't tell me that there's fear mongering about democratic socialism. We understand precisely what it is in my opinion. And those those things need to need to be separate and what we're actually experiencing right now is the opposite. We're experiencing is just as there's all this fearmongering that government is going to take over every corporation and government is going to take over every business. That's not the fear. She's so far off. But I don't fear the government doing that. There would be a revolution or a revolt before that happens. The government's not going gonna take over businesses. What we fear is that our incomes, and our wealth, two entirely different. Things are going to be taxed out the walls zoo all in exchange for what? Reduced benefits reduce services reduced programs. Trying to cover everybody for whatever needs. They might have. That's what we fear, we fear becoming Democrats, socialists. And we know exactly what it is. And it is not the government taking over the means of production for every form of production. We should be scared right now because corporations have taken over our government. Well. If corporations have taken over the government, they only did. And look, I think. I think that there ought to be more transparency in terms of lobbying campaign donations also think there ought to be. To be fewer limits on campaign donations in campaign contributions. But if we're going to bitch about corporations taking over government, let's I recognize that unions of all stripes were much more influential long before the citizens United decision came about that just equal the playing field. So don't give me all that crap. But the point of all of this is very simple. Over the weekend. At south by southwest, suddenly capitalism became a horrific word. Our own former governor John Hickenlooper was asked at south by south west. Can have difficulty with capitalism. Are you concerned about some.

"Listen, we got. So we started this whole process of about the back that you've got all these candidates that want to run for president. And some of them would never heard it before. But what what this this latest guy this John Hickenlooper who up until a couple of weeks ago was the governor of Colorado. And he is saying I'm a moderate. I'm a moderate Democrats. I'm a moderate. So I look at which way the countries moving and particularly because you've got all these people who are going to be the not one of them is going to be the nominee to run against Donald Trump. And I find it interesting to see how the country is thinking, and whether they line up with Bernie Sanders or they line up with a John Hickenlooper because they are not they may both be Democrats, but they're not the same political animals at all. So he he was a scientist. And got into politics, and he calls himself a coke bottle glasses and a funny last name a skinny kid with a nerd image. Went on to become a scientist, dentist successful politician. So I don't know which of those the country will be more interested in the far left in the in the form of Bernie Sanders. Or a moderate democrat in the form of John Hickenlooper or? Populist in the form of Donald Trump. That's all I can call Donald Trump is he is a populist. He's not a Republican. He's not a democrat. He was both of those that, you know, by official name at some point. But this is. But he's a populist and populist come and go and right now, populism is very popular. So I don't know. I don't know which way people are thinking Hickenlooper. He does have a funny name. I think it's more. I think people remember that because it's a funny name more. So than what's his name was the governor was the was the reason governor of the state of Washington Jay Inslee. I don't think people will remember that. So I don't know how this is all going to work out. But it will. Long way to go. Before we come down to who were going to decide this this this other part of this poll about the fact, they don't like people don't want somebody over seventy five. We haven't really talked about ageism. But I mean, that's I think Joe Biden looks like he's on the cusp of jumping in. The only problem I have with a lot of problems with Joe. But Joe Joe, you know, everybody loves Joe. But if he is this indecisive, I don't know if I wanna run, well, I'm thinking about running I'm gonna check with my family. Oh, I don't know. I've I've I've run before. Not sure if I want to run, but I think I do is that the kind of decisive person you you want as your president. So to me as much as old uncle Joe, oh, there's lots of things that people will tack him for because he's got forty years of of of history that people will attack him for. But I look at Joan I go make your mind up man, either fish or cut bay don't just sit around and go. Well, I'm not sure. And that sounds like the last kind of person you want sitting with their finger on the button and in the White House. I don't know what do you think? Maybe we should. Maybe we should end..
