"He was blessedly. Not involved when you make these kinds of films you want as few people in the cooks in the kitchen as possible but what happened was the band. Didn't totally trust us. At first i mean they may not still they still might address us but the point is they they were there. Concerns were assuaged by the inclusion of marty. He's not he's not no. I notice most of the abandoned family members such as justin kreutzmann who is also. A filmmaker were prominently featured in the credits. What were those working relationships like difficult to manage at times relatively easy or both the so the band that was part of our contract with them is that they would get executive producer credits. People always see that. And i think rightfully so they said we'll hang on this just like a piece of pr for the band. I think it's pretty clear that it isn't you know because i mean if it was. Pr for the band would be very different. But they there was one scene that they wanted taken out. Were just introducing. Things are starting to get kinda dark. I think friend of the davalos playing and barlow is saying you know that the band was kind of beyond the was sort of beyond good and evil. And you're seeing that. There's like hells angels backstage and stuff and that i you know i and i just it's embarrassing to admit this but like i fought back at first and at one point i told my dad. I complained to my father about it and he goes. Let me get this straight. You made a four hour film about the grateful. Dead's entire history. You've got all kinds of stuff in there. And the one thing they want is like a one shot take shot out and that kinda snapped me out of it. And i realized i'd gotten off. I was the extent of the editorial pressure. I got from the grateful dead. Let's talk about the bits. You did use. Interestingly you use an emily dickinson poem to open the movie. Can you share that with our listeners. And tell us why you opened with that so the poem is because i could not stop for death and i mean the reason we started with is because it's a beautiful poem about embracing life's morality embracing deaths. I think the grateful dead are high are should be considered like emily dickinson is considered and so actually. I really credit my editor john walter with this. It was his idea to put emily dickenson in their his notion. Is if you don't like hall off in punch the audience in the face in the first five minutes you lost. You have to surprise the audience. Everybody comes into a film particularly documentaries. People come into films with expectations. Extraordinarily important to wreck those Expectations early on. So that's that's why a lot of things happen. In the first five minutes is film. Death adna mercy is like the opening song which is a very somber absolutely not the song you would think to put at the very beginning of the movie. And so that's why dickinson is up there. Because you're not. You wouldn't expect that bits of frankenstein run throughout the film as well. Is there a metaphor there. Well there is. Yeah i credit again. My editor. that was mentioning john walter. But i'll talk about the process. Because i think it's a grateful dead kind of process so we tried to work the way. The grateful dead work as best we could. And the way that. I understand that the grateful dead were is through embracing. Everybody's weird idiosyncrasies. He got a rhythm guitar player. Who plays the weirdest rhythms you've ever heard. Phillips had never played the bass use classically trained and so on and so forth. Jerry invited everybody to give of themselves. You know in these very idiosyncratic seemingly incommensurate ways and that's what makes the grateful dead and that's why the hell's angels backstage and and so on and so forth that's the eclecticism of the grateful. Dead is very challenging to run anything whether it's a rock band or try to direct a film with that ethos in mind. But i'm inspired by jerry in that way so an example of how. We tried to work that way. I had a different beginning. I think it was the watts towers. My editor came on this film Late and he's the guy. I was losing to when i said he is. He does not like the grateful dead musically. You know he still doesn't. He was going through all the different interviews and i had totally discarded the interview of jerry where he talks about that. Because it's it's originally done on this. The american movie channel. And it's got this gauzy lighting at jerry's in bad shape and it's not really about the grateful. Dead it's about his love of adding costello meet frankenstein and it so happens that my editor also considers that his favorite movie john the editor. Listen to this and having listened to a bunch of other stuff he said to me. This is the key to unlock jerry garcia. You're crazy to have discarded. This you know i said okay. Let me hear your argument for and his argument is basically that that this this is what holds this whole thing together. You embrace. What repulses you. What scares you you know. And just as emily dickenson talks about going to death Just as jerry invited all these people who play music in a totally different way than he does to influence and cook co co the with them and you know invite refused to say that hells angels. Shouldn't be backstage and refused to come down on gatecrashers in the nineties. You know or at least had to be dragged kicking and screaming to do that you know so to his young embracing of this thing. That terrified him in the movies. The image of frankenstein right. After his dad died that is a key to what makes the grateful dead so special. And when i say grateful that i'm including the fans and so it. So that's why we chose the metaphor of frankenstein in we. We tried to do it in in dream logic if you really watch the film carefully. The metaphor actually changes you. Know how like when you have a dream and you say while you were there but it was us you and my dad and then you turn my teacher and stuff like that well. We tried to do a lot of like making the message in the medium will work together on the film and so one of the things is like dream logic. That spirals around and kind of comes back as ed. Eason call backs and stuff like that and you know early on. He's talking about frankenstein as something other than him. Later becomes frankenstein you know in our talent and then at the very end e becomes dr frankenstein. You know when you know using. i'm tired. I'm tired but he can't control the monster anymore in the nineties. That's kind of the idea is that you're kind of coming at it from all these different sides but it's it's one one metaphor you sort of answer my next question and a very grateful deadly fashion. Jerry garcia was the de facto leader of the band yet had a disdain for authority and said he would put up with the adulation until the fans quote. Come for me with the cross and nails phil had a great line where he said everybody listened really hard. That's how the grateful dead evolved did that kind of philosophy influence or drive the making of this film. I'm always trying to check myself and see things from other points of view and they've got that that's the grade that ethos is not taking turns talking in the way like tennis match works but rather listening and talking in responding to one another. You're listening to all music movies. Part of the all music. Podcasts and pantheon media. we're speaking with amir bar lev. Who's the director of the grateful. Dead documentary long strange trip impressed with sam cutler who served as tour manager for the dead and the rolling stones for many years and sort of serves as a bit of a guide in the film. He's.

"My feeling is it's not necessarily the dialogue itself though. I have some to writing in this episode but it is performances potentially of the to dies and then yet there is. There is something much until about the dialogue in the near venues and the way they deliver. And almost as you say you almost get it with ross. Most has has the spirit of party in the car chase when she's when she's sort of effortlessly handling the these gate walston the same time chatting away back about how she acton find is history It reminded me The other this is the whole the whole this episode is not just the dialogue claim as holy cliches around action movies the contracting dropping into the crusher is perhaps the most egregious of those i would say the new avengers did all is cliches. Well point about was you almost got commentary from the leads because they there was an irony in the way that it was done. So when you have a is not city. Good app site in in the midas touch where they are in big car chase and they literally stole boxes of oranges go rolling across the street and then they joined through a pile of cardboard boxes. But what makes that. Scene is that while they're engaged in this chase are having a conversation about whether it was a joan. Who's john walter. Huston who directed the treasure of sierra mantra on on east not kind of ironic detachment the elevates it above the kind of cliche actions. And i'm not sure this one quite manages to to elevator. It's more like they won't they. What they are doing is just giving you the standard of the set piece action numbers. Okay so. let me preface this comment with. I haven't seen the new avengers since the late seventies so it's been very very long time and i will say that my recollection of the new avengers is that it was a disappointment. The avengers obviously has went through many changes with time. And i think you could. You could make an argument that it went from fairly strong grounding in reality at the beginning to a bit perhaps too far into the the wacky by the end and the balance is about right. And i don't think it's just because of diana rake. But i think the balance is about right for me in the diana rigg years between and maybe that's because that's what i came to it i. I don't know but when you go to the new avengers cut back to something. That is a very much more standard spy show. Yes but it has the name of injuries on it and that has a certain it's like if they call it a james bond tv series. You could almost you could you could make to. Tv shows that had the identical plot..

We were playing good ball, just not great ball and had some No chances to separate against a good team on the road, which you know when you're a great team. You take advantage of those and we were not quite area and came down the back and forth game. You know, a couple places we didn't make. You know some of the key plays.

TJ Donovan would be a stronger as polling what they are hoping is that the results will encourage either Zuckerman or Donovan to Sir standing then that might entice either either man into for this segment of the Dave Ramsey show and we will be back after some CBS News at the top of our couple folks stick there's two shoppers treasure trove of toys gifts cards accessories and beautiful functional clothing darn tough and more upstairs at the almost world-famous Warren Store Warren Village Are we back I've thumbed it I'm sorry that's okay they're in Wakefield but we'll save them up for for another full presentation I and I really appreciate all your listeners out there staying with us been lots of interesting because we're not going to be talking to our folks our guests from the University of remind colleagues agriculture you're more than welcome to do so two four four one seven seven seven all to our show yesterday on the on the situation in the Harvard Union and how to react to the states act forty six law that combined administrations John is the one most likely would be on the block if if in fact that March and that's going to be a really I think it's a tough preschool are feeling I it's really painful and tough and difficult for the community and taxes within some realm of reasonableness in the in the in the School District Gold for folks to think about their annual property tax bill and how are you how worth while at the same time allowing folks to continue to live in the communities cases and so it's it's a tough call I really as I said the other day when thousand bucks a year or less to serve on a school board and I it's many hours and I think that there's real real value to that to that kind of approach to life around here members and so on you got you also have to stand back and just remember they're trying to make the best decisions informed manner possible and is it's not always easy the US House of Representatives continuing its impeachment inquiry in fact today there's it's a really interesting thing I think the you know I always read in is the is the body that acts as the as the jury so in chance for defense counsel to get in in front of a grand jury that's why there's a funny although pam sandwiches could probably be indicted for having too high cholesterol or something as a grand jury it is a instead it's a a bill from Middlebury has to say about all this morning bill good morning three thousand dollars income limit for stay payments I'm certain amount of education taxes oh I see okay yeah I get you yeah I was curious if that I think that the what's happening in my honestly is just fresh downward pressure on the select the same token you earn less than a hundred and thirty thousand dollars year it doesn't yes idea of closing schools simply because if you learn fifty thousand dollars what you're allowed to pay and so even if they stem was left open face was close discussion about people worrying about property taxes may be overplayed a little bit because there is this the Nana central tax rates and then there's the local hempstead rate yes the nonresidential rate is set by the state and it doesn't matter what you do hopefully thousand dollars a year per pupil and you're still gonna be staying the same amount of tax I and and if you're paying basically income taxes to support education instead of a property I'm ultimately everybody's gotTa pay into the system you know for our for argument's sake it's over one hundred thousand dollars because once you get to one hundred one hundred you know medium is like sixty five thousand per year or something like that and I don't know that that discussion has been had and people really understand that even if have those folks from Harvard on some of them are already clamoring for another show devoted to the topic on at least once before on the day Graham Show here that I think is really a segment this is something that we do in second hour every Thursday program here the white range of issues that do relate to agriculture sometimes a little bit tangentially we had were agriculture and and those kinds of pursuits and census issues thirty.

"WD Ev FM. Now back to the day Bram show and we are back on the phone we have bill off of CBS News. WHO's GONNA fill us in on the latest from from Washington? Good Morning Bill Warning. Dave how are you. I'm doing well and I wanted to check in with you to find out I guess the House is going to be voting today on sort of the ground rules for a public public impeachment process. Now do I understand that right. Yeah that is correct. In fact they have just now started debate within the last ten minutes or so on it's officially called House resolution sixty sixty minutes a resolution that would sort of codify in the words of some Democrats. What's been happening up till now and pave the way For the future of the impeachment inquiry which which is we understand to include public hearing sometime next month hoping to wrap all of this up before the Christmas break There is Some strong opposition from the Republicans to this They feel that the process has been unfair. They feel that the resolution really doesn't change anything and keeps The power of the impeachment inquiry in the hands of Adam Schiff the chairman of the Intelligence Committee but Democrats say no. I mean it's the way it's supposed to be you wanted public hearings. We're going to lay the rules rules for public hearings. You wanted to be able to participate. You can participate in. Oh by the way the President and Republicans will be able to do what they want to when these things had The actual articles impeachment phase. If there are any drawn up that's when they say that Everybody gets their crack at it but right now they're treating it as an investigation and the Ah So this process. Is the Democrats have essentially. It looked like they were initially conceding. Some stuff to Republicans about how the process would work more public more transparent more involvement by lawyers for the president etc But it's still not good enough for Republicans and and essentially This Yes some Democrats essentially say this was calling Republicans Bluff. They said it's not transparent. It's not fair it's not open. Nobody knows what's going on. So they say okay we're GONNA lay down. The rules was on this which is something they wanted. They wanted to transparency. They wanted the ability to have open. Hearings Jamie Raskin. A Democrat from Maryland said yesterday. Because we're giving you everything that you want he says but it doesn't seem like You guys are taken the Bait instead. You guys are continuing to argue about the process rather than the substance of the investigation and that's where the dividing line Remains even as we go through this vote today the Eventually this'll make it over in the Senate I mean really looks like the House has with the Democratic majority of the and and a lot of people really on board with this process now on the democratic side That you're going to end up with articles of impeachment being sent to the Senate. I saw something in the last day. Or Two indicating that Mitch McConnell it was at least considering the idea of a sort of an almost an instant dismissal of some kind in the Senate I is that still in play. Does that have any chance of happening. Happening were What's happening on that front? I don't think that would be politically expedient for the majority leader although it may get rid of You know the initial official heat I I I don't see that happening previously McConnell has said that he would You know he's got no choice really. If they bring the articles of impeachment they have to have have The hearing Yes there was some thought that Republicans might try to pull some procedural maneuvers to try to stop. OP It in its tracks but you know it just the most of us up here. Don't think that that's really going to happen. The McConnell is going to have to let this play out and then it's largely going to be out of his hands Because because it'll be the chief justice of the United States sitting over an impeachment trial if there is one in an awful lot of what he's GonNa do I would think would be just determined about. Do He's going to be very closely really watching what the polls are an individual states where Republican senators are up in twenty twenty. What questions is how am I doing on retaining my Republican majority? Yeah and you know I. It's never easy when you're coming into an election year if you're a leader of your own party to try to figure out how to proceed legislatively Because you are always taking those things into consideration. What are we move? What don't we move who's vulnerable If they have to vote against it I mean who can we let slide if they have to vote. Vote against it Who Do we have to hold their toes to the fire? A you know just crank the amp to eleven when you talk about impeachment and all of this because it's such a hot button issue so now well I don't envy Mitch McConnell job I mean yes I mean he certainly has the stature and experience to get it done but It's it's not a fun job when you're when you're trying to hold all the horses corral trying to hold all the horses in Corral Bill rakoff thanks very much for joining me this morning I appreciate it thank you day. Alrighty let's turn our attention now to Our next guest John. Walters is a blogger. He has the Vermont Political Observer blog and He's uh he's he's been a guest on Dave grab show here probably a dozen times now roughly year and a half I've been doing this and I really appreciate a Jon. Kamen back in his new guys I see for of course for a while for the first For the first part of my career talk radio I was having a mind. Is the columnist to the fair game. Columnist for seven days is end There's been a recent change. They're actually a little bit of a twist on that change announced this week. What's going on John Well I can tell you secondhand from what I've read They at the time When I left seven days in August They weren't sure whether they were going to continue the fair game. Column or not and They announced their decision yesterday. They are killing the column They say there is some chance of bringing back at some point in the future. But I doubt that they have if To fill my opening they have hired another reporter for their statehouse bureau in that reporter Colin Flanders Will be doing straight straight journalism They're going to kill the column and I appreciate the effort. I really honored the effort of seven days to maintain in a robust news staff in these times when we have fewer and fewer reporters all the time I I do think that The Vermont you know Those who are interested in Vermont Politics Miss Fair Game. That's a column with twenty five years of history behind it You know I was only there air for the last couple of years. So I'm at the tail end of that of that train but But it it was a unique place that a lot of people turn to for for what's going on and sort of explaining how and why and maybe some of the background behind What's going on and and there? It was really about the only place for regular sort of political analysis and commentary in Vermont media so they will have more journalism there which will have its is benefits but Sorry to see fair game go. I think it is a sign of the of the changing media diet in Vermont. I mean it used to be You know when I was first working in Vermont as a reporter back in the eighties working for the Associated Press We'd get our Daily News coverage what's going on at the State House From a a three person We were covering it at the. Ap Of course The Times Argus in Rutland Herald had a three person bureau in failure covering the covering the State House and all the political goings on in Vermont. And of course the Press at the time had three reporters working under the Golden Dome in Montpellier and The Times Argus Argus and the free press have Scaled back to all the time. Darkness is really scaled back nothing in terms of its own State House Coverage The and the and the free press is pretty close to that at these days And so there's this void of of sort of standard WHO's filing what bill and he's in? What lobbyists are pushing in which bill and and WHO's making the trade offs and all that kind of stuff And the There is a void there that that needs to film. I think seven days just as sort of seeing that obviously we now have a new entry on recent entry on the scene is digger and vp are is beefed up at staff Some so so it's not. It's not a complete void but Boy I agree. There's just a lot less daily coverage of the of Vermont Political and government news news than there was thirty years ago and And I think seven days is probably seeing that but back in those days we would rely on on our on the east. Stop the free. Press the the the Rutland Herald and we would we would be watching the news flow in those places and then we pick up What was it called back then the vanguard presser wile or Vermont I wasn't seven days yet but it was sort of the precursor of seven days. And we'd we'd pick up that paper and and and really that was the first place you turn in the paper. Was that column and by Peter Frayne. Yeah for a long time. For a long time frame had that column column and and it was funny irreverent and and just you know really sorta tasted like frosting on the cake of the regular coverage in the other publications and and And and that that was pretty. Those are pretty pretty heady days. I don't think we appreciate it enough back then or something. Yeah Yeah it's I mean digger is the only outlet these days. It's really sort of doing the meat and potatoes. You know the press conferences and covering the big bills and the latest developments on a day to day basis Yep which there used to be a lot of reporters covering and You know what you get. Is You get the bigger slice of whatever the top stories are and then there's a lot of have no coverage whereas in the old days if you had a three person bureau you would have one reporter who would cover the top story but the have a couple of other reporters who were poking around around and going to other hearings and you know following developments that maybe weren't quite Rypien and So there was a lot more depth to the news coverage now and I think as digger bigger takes on tries to do the meat and potatoes and also provides some you know depth and context seven days is positioning itself. I think as as a An exploratory place for in-depth coverage of specific stories in specific issues so They see more value for themselves in the readers in In adding other reporter to their to their reporting team than in maintaining column. There is another uh another force entering the scene interrupt journalism in recent years which I I'm not convinced. His altogether healthy because it is different is really not not journalism in the traditional sense because journalism in the traditional sense You know people will dispute behind us but they Basically a show up for work at the being being at the beginning of the day. And you're not supposed to be setting out with an ideological agenda and some of the new entrance on the scene. You know true north reports sports You know the publications Guy Pages doing guys thoughtful Fella and he has but he definitely has a point of view and and he shows up with a conservative Virginia and all the news read for him pretty much has that spin on it and I mean the thing even even even Frayne was a was a liberal and you were you lean liberal John And and in your in your seven days column in in your blog but the thing is is that you are you allow yourself occasionally to write a column saying that the the Democrats are behaving idiots. You know I have always been More than happy to call the Democrats out on their stuff As anyone else outs and in fact crime perhaps more so because the Democrats have so much power That they are more likely to screw up and significant ways. You like to meet up the over dog. And and that's you know afflict the comfortable as an old principle in journalism and and You know and I I actually think that that at these new outlets says on the right whereas it is true. North it's I missing one. There's a Oh this Thing Bob rainiers doing now it's a online Vermont News presentation that he's doing and you know they they start out from this idea that we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA use a sort of news was like vehicle to push a conservative agenda. Yeah and and that's something that you know..

"The from Radio Vermont. It's the Dave Graham show on. WD It's your show about the people places and the issues that matter the most of you. Now here's your host Dave Graham. Good morning everybody is Halloween Halloween morning. Say Halloween night. It seems like they're so darn a cloudy. It's almost feels like Spooky or something out there but It's Halloween warning October. Thirty first Thursday morning actually Two Thousand Nineteen and We have a good show lined up for you this morning. WE'RE GONNA be talking first off with John Clark. He is a Republican Challenging Governor Phil Scott for the Republican nomination to run for governor under the Republican Banner in Two Thousand Twenty Feel Scott of course is closing in on the halfway point of his second two year term and John Clark is running being Being described in a lot of media reports this week since his announcement the couple of days ago as Challenging Scott from the right and it does seem that way. He is a pro-life if he is Somebody who is very much pro business and worried about the Worried about Vermont's business climate and government getting too large large. And maybe we'll let John Claritin tell you a little bit more about himself as John on the line with us I am yes. Good morning thanks for. Thanks for joining me. I really appreciate it. And you announced Was a Tuesday Monday Monday. I'm sorry I can't even keep track of what time of day it. It is whether it's Halloween morning or night or what day of the week or I'm a little bit in need of more coffee. I think this morning or something but hey I wanted to. I did want to check in with you and find out A little bit about your platform as you challenge Governor Phil Scott for the Republican nomination in two thousand twenty and I think I have it right from reading being a couple of years. Recent commentaries That you are a staunch opponent of abortion new thought H Fifty-seven. Bill passed this past year. Codifying abortion rates in robot. Law was a really bad idea. and So why don't we start with that just because it's sort of the top of the alphabet maybe How am I doing so far are are you somebody who feels like Vermont? Really needs to put the brakes on here and reversed itself what it did earlier this year. Well I think I'm one of many and particularly on that that issue and and I am pro-life from conception but I am not seeking to make that law and Vermont Alabama sort of law nor do I think that's even wise politically but it to propose a third trimester abortion ban in Vermont is about as radical as you could get and that's what we are doing. I am certainly not alone and in response to your question. Yes I will. Thank the Democrats in progresses this year in Vermont for showing all of us to age fifty seven both that these procedures are performed here That they would not like is to know that but they advertise it for us very loudly. So now they have been the The the catalyst for us now having this conversation these abortion laws are perhaps succeeded in the world only by China where they have been alleged to have forced abortions upon women. My wife is an rn. I've written articles about this people in the healthcare community suffer horribly when they are compelled to perform these procedures. There's even if they are pro choice and I in my youth was pro-life pro-choice I mean but I came to understand And and grow and smarten up. Yep and so. I've been called already extremists for proposing. This and I would like to suggest that those who call this a medical procedure or the extremists. And when our attorney attorney general files a lawsuit alleging that healthcare workers who are not willing to perform these procedures are not Ethically competent offense to care for their own patients. I think we need to have a conversation about that patient who is in the late stages of pregnancy and about to be born so just to be clear. Your the proposal is to ban third trimester abortions in Vermont. Is that right. Yes Sir and also to acknowledge feel person hood in criminal cases which this legislature feature is spent more than ten years resisting. I am a former criminal attorney. I have been involved in cases where women have been murdered who were pregnant and there were no charges against in stem and there are cases obviously with women survive and there is no way for prosecutors to charge people. It is not extremists to ask for women to be protected acted when they're babies are murdered by criminals or drunk drivers or assailants or domestic partners. Okay and would that would that protection action. You describe Extend beyond the third trimester into the earlier stages of pregnancy well that's to be debated by the legislature. HR as a gubernatorial candidate. I am Standing for a policy lists that many people support but it would be up to individual legislators if we are successful to retake our house this is to draft those details and that's the democratic process but certainly I'm open to anybody telling me why it shouldn't be from conception and and Patricia Blair would be a woman women who lost two babies and has been ignored by the legislature. For years whose opinion we would like to hear as well and Ah Okay so you're you're you're saying you're You're willing to hear proposals of a range of proposals. But the idea being to criminalise these instances where a a A fetus is is killed in a criminal act as the idiom. Yes and I personally. Don't see how you could draw that line anywhere other than conception and if people want on the left one to explain to mothers. Oh well your baby wasn't old enough yet to qualify for criminal law protection. Those those of us who've been involved with miscarriages understand that it's very painful and for those who are victims of a crime. I I don't think such niceties should be drawn in the criminals fear. I think that it's not unreasonable. At all that suggests that someone criminally causes the death of another person's child it. We shouldn't be drawing lines at all and that it should be from conception but I am happy to have that conversation if people WANNA differ. 'cause we're going to have that conversation let me ask you about What is always seem to me to be a little bit of a contradiction because because I hear on the one hand a lot of Republicans talk about the The desire to make government smaller and less intrusive in people's lives You know grover norquist's famously. He's talked about Making it small enough to drown in a bathtub. I gather he was mainly referring to the federal government here but I think the principle applies. And you've used I used this metaphor of of killing tech and overly bloated You know bloody bloated tech that needs to be popped And and so obviously certain certain skepticism about about the government reaching into people's lives here in those cases Wouldn't this be. I mean if we had sort of the extreme pro-life government in action Where where we were essentially policing women's reproductive lives throughout throughout from their teen years into you know Menopause wouldn't that be a huge growth in in government action in individuals lives. No Sir not at all forty. Three states currently banned third trimester abortions Roe versus Wade acknowledged fetal person hood and at the State had a a compelling state interest to protect those child children and we are only using government within the context. We've always used it to protect human life state vs Oliver. Our Supreme Court observed that it could not legislate to protect the unborn. That was thirty years ago. And that is the Supreme Court speaking. And if you read the decision clearly they're indicating that it would be appropriate and they felt remorse that they could not give relief to the plaintiff in that case and meanwhile we have an existing case. Vail import In the case In Vermont I have an article about this on the federalist in which physicians can be sued for medical malpractice when they caused the death of the fetus. So we're just trying to clarify in straighten out some existing very in Congress law but as far as government intrusion when I talk about the bloated dome and that swollen tick that is sucking the blood out of Vermont as I'm speaking particularly to the extraordinarily extraordinary disconnect of their policies and the economic consequences for the rest of us there. A reason why people are leaving and it is not sustainable to keep paying all this money. But as to government intrusion in the LIFE Third Trimester Child is a human being deserving of support. We are intervening. You need to stop murder. We certainly do it in the case of people shooting one another with a gun and this is no different. Okay one last question. On this broad topic of reproductive rights abortion Etcetera Cetera and and and that is You made reference to the the role of healthcare professionals here. Obviously there was a big controversy recently at the University of Vermont Medical Center. Where they they were called Called up short by a federal agency. on this on on this topic would it makes sense for the hospital to Tell personnel you know maybe issue somebody a letter on hiring saying we don't inquire about your religious beliefs or anything but if you have a problem performing participating in performing abortions let's say Will be sure to that As we hire you assign you due to a part of the hospital you know orthopedics or You know oncology or some part of the hospital that doesn't doesn't have to face this You probably wouldn't work in OB and you probably wouldn't work in the Er well that's what was already in effect and that's what Tj. Hey Donovan is saying is unacceptable. Because the rule change would have allowed Nurses and doctors that exact conscientious objection in a case that's alleged in Burlington Burlington at Uvm by more than one nurse which created headlines. They're told that that was specifically refused to them and they were then knowingly. Put in harm's way as far as as for their conscience and my wife has been involved in these procedures I have been involved in these procedures. They're human beings and that's why they haunt people so absolutely what you've just proposed is a middle road And that's exactly what the extremists including our attorney. General who walks around arm-in-arm with planned parenthood is using in our tax dollars to file a national lawsuit to insultingly tell nurses. They cannot and must not have that conscientious objection and so that also is conversation. And I'm glad we're now having thank you. Okay let's shift gears here and talk about some of the other issues that are in play. I gather that you are a skeptic skeptic about marijuana and legalization decriminalization and and Certainly a retail industry in in Vermont is that is that true. Yes Sir And yes quite go ahead and tell us about your position on all of that obviously. Obviously it's a highly controversial position starting where you started To increase government to intrude into people. Wise more in drug enforcement is a the growth of government power and it has not worked did not work with alcohol. Prohibition what did Happen in Alcohol prohibition is it. The government grew huge. The whole Eliot Ness thing the the US US marshals service was expanded government power huge amounts of money was spent to no avail and it created a huge black market which we know through capone and others and we were willing to acknowledge it failed Eld we now have heroin flooding streets with Sentinel killing people everywhere. You cannot keep heroin which is from a foreign nation and manufactured out of a maximum security facility..

"In for your daydream today. In our second hour. We're going to be talking with just diamond stone of the Vermont Liberty Union Party and Neil Johnson of the Green Mountain Party <hes> <hes> and we're GONNA be talking about how the two party system has had an effect on minor parties in the state of Vermont in kind of the challenges that they have in getting their message out and getting the attention of others so <hes>. I'm expecting that to be a pretty good conversation in a few minutes. We're going to be talking to <hes> Talk Media News about things going on in Washington D._C.. But we wanted to talk briefly <hes> kind of following up on my conversation that we were having earlier about Bernie Sanders where <hes> one of our one of our callers was <hes> took offense to <hes> John Walters <hes> comment that they're conspiracy theorists out there <hes> who are Kinda pull into the left on on certain things and <hes> the felt that the the call was directed at him and it was not it was <hes> I think date and I think John was talking in general terms we apologize to the caller feeling like <hes> it was directed at him <hes> but it was just kind of you know off the Cup off the cuff kind of comment but right now we're going to go down to Washington and talk to Bob of nee of Talk Media News Bob. How are you today? I am Great Steve. How are you? I'm very well thank you. I'm still trying to recuperate a little bit from the fourth of July weekend and all the good weather. We've been having here in Vermont so yeah so what's going on. Well few things the Iranians <hes> played cat-and-mouse with the British Iranians tried to stop one of their tankers. The British had a worship behind the tanker. It stopped all of that then the British stopped and Iranian vessel that was headed they think to Syria which would have violated sanctions of <hes> you know United States sanctions of transmitting oil and carrying it so they did that. <hes> the reason Asian this is a three really of interest is because up to now the Iranians really have had you know the battle back and forth between us and them and now it's between them and the British so obviously things in Iran are getting adding more <hes> in the hands of the clerics who would do this kind of thing versus the moderates who really wouldn't do this type of thing well and you were talking about it being a bit of cat and mouse. What's what's it's the cat and mouse aspect of this at this point well? It's the fact that you know the Iranians are saying to the British. We're out of the nuclear deal with America so we want our own deal and you know if we if you don't do that we're starting to enrich more uranium uranium. We're starting to make more centrifuges. We will go more into a nuclear Iran so you know part of the cat and mouse game and now of course it's you know the Iranians shaking the British ship and the British chasing their ships so it the prior to this is really just more. That's been US versus the Ronnie Irani Ins and it's been that way for a little while now but it definitely feels like it's escalating it does <hes> the other story of interest in in Polit- political domestic <hes> this was really something else and only because you know for my aspect I served in the House with Nancy Pelosi and <hes> in a private meeting Speaker Pelosi said that if you have questions come see see me and basically I'm going to paraphrase here you know we don't need to be talking about <hes> members out there you know in the social media context and the response by A._F._C. was fascinating. She said at first I thought that the speaker was trying to keep progressives. Arm's distance basically protect some of the moderate democratic members she said now. She said she believes that speaker. Pelosi is singling out newly elected democratic women of Color uh-huh honestly <hes> that's bizarre <hes> I served eleven years with Nancy Pelosi anybody that knows Nancy Pelosi knows that I really don't think she singles out women of Color. You know so this is this is sort of the beginning of a civil war internally well just just when we need more turmoil right sure of course you can't have it with their public as you have to have it inter-party to the democratic size joining the Republican Cypher inter-party fights catch right right all right well Bob Ney of talk media news thanks so much my guest the second hour or going to be <hes> Neil Johnson of the Green Mountain Party and just diamond stone of the Vermont Liberty Union Party and they are both represent minor what are called minor parties in the state <hes> and with that comes some challenges in in large part <hes> they have a hard harder time getting the message out there <hes> and part of that's going to be <hes> the blame put to the media and part of that is <hes> just kind of the challenges of in general of of how this two party system is kind of stopping its way through everything in shouting down lots of other voices so I'm expecting this to be a pretty good conversation. Neil Johnson is here in the studio with me and just diamond stone joins us on the phone. Welcome to both of you. Thank you hi good morning good morning so just I'm going to start with you and ask you to tell me a little bit about the Vermont Liberty Union Party. Well sure thank you <hes> I guess I I I just want to thank you for <hes> taking the time to <hes> to bring this conversation to the four it's very important and I also think folks are listening and <hes> to people who who for fifty years <hes> Fifty Years Ago Birth Liberty Union party out of a vision of a world free from war and <hes> and <hes> since then the hundreds and hundreds of people who have supported the party and kept kept it vital so huge thanks before we begin yeah <hes> so as far as the party in a Har Hard to put that in a nutshell but <hes> we began out of a response to the Vietnam War and <hes> Bill Mayer who was the first Democrat thick candidate to be elected. I believe either the State House or Senate who was not re elected or not renominated by the Democratic Party because of his strong position on <hes> on war and for that reason <hes> he became the catalyst and he and a handful of other people said we really need another vehicle to voice these important messages and thus came the Liberty Union Party so <hes> I did hear you mentioned that it was a minor party and I I want to be for people to be very clear that it has for the most part been a major party in the state of Vermont. It wasn't until two thousand thirteen <hes> that we really <hes> began to doc more consistently have minor party status and <hes> yes. You're right. We can <hes> point the finger to the media that often either Vilnai's is or <hes> <hes> the little the <hes> creative thinking of alternative party candidates but we can also <hes> give credit to the secretary of State's office that I believe it was the secretary of State's office that was responsible for creating creating consistently more limitations or requirements that make it ever increasingly difficult for major-party major parties to remain major parties <hes> which is what happened to us in two thousand thirteen when the requirements <hes> became vastly more difficult <hes> in that we had to organize thirty town committees in seven different counties <hes> rather than the fifteen that had been required for so long <hes> and you know this is devastating to the conversation it's it it only hurts for monitor's because we no longer get a chance to hear what all of our options Tim there but we're gonNA come back and talk about that at length but now I want to switch over to Neil Johnson and have him tell us a little bit about the Green Mountain Party. Hey Steve thanks so much for having us. I can't express Oh what a treat it as to be able to take them on the air when we were running last year <hes> well. I tell you a little bit about the party. I I guess the our our our situation had been that were dealing with some local issues and just the public in general there was no organization and we found that the select board was not responsive whatsoever and we address some other issues and it Kinda lead to becoming a political party one of the things our platform was to try to make Vermont affordable to address the school funding issue and to <hes> assessor drug issues issues alcohol and drug issues and I know the governor rightfully has spoken about one. I think one is born every day addicted to hardcore drug and he's not getting any support and it is an issue in our state so those those are the three the three major issues under those we have other. Yes right so what what community <hes> specifically was the root of of this discussion well we were in a mad river valley and it's not to say that we don't Love Valley. We we do tremendously but we had serious issues over the years. They wanted a whole water system in sewer system. You know we were told it was going to be economical economical it wasn't they got one of it can't afford it. Then we went to town hall that was <hes> The didn't budge on anything at all as far as one point six million for fifteen hundred people they wouldn't make any <unk> any concessions whatsoever whatsoever and then kind of straw that broke the camel's back pocket park and our pocket park consisted of grant money which is kind of everybody thinks it's free money from the state and it was <hes> repaying a million dollars as per acre repaid twenty thousand dollars for this rock in the floodway and the budget was two hundred thousand dollars for plantings and a couple of park benches and we just this is crazy and then immediately when we were on front porch form and and I just basically re this is before becoming as a party we stated the the budget exactly what was written in the paper and we just we said you know we believe that I think it was forty five thousand dollars for engineering and permeating for this this little park that was not big not much bigger than these two offices we're looking at was insane and at that point I was taken off front porch form and told that <hes> I was no hunger able to communicate indicating valley well so let's talk a little bit about that that that the Democrats and the Republicans in the.

Jay, how're you doing guys the problem with recruiting and everything you have and Mullins doing a great job with what is being able to recruit you have the top ten schools in the country in basketball, the top twenty thirty players in the country is going to migrate to those schools because of exposure, here's why you're wrong. Here's why you're wrong. I tell you why you're wrong because well, I guess I shouldn't say you're wrong. Let me rephrase that why think misguided right now this team had the talent to be better than what it ended up being. They should have been better in the conference. They shouldn't have been the play in game. I'm sorry. I had enough to out there. Well, I don't wanna hear about recruiting. And they weren't planning on a salad talent is a different thing. You have to get talent second play with each other. Okay. All right. But what point though, it's not about recruiting? Spo- here these kids don't wanna go. All right. So you've got talent you have a couple of of good talent. But these kids that want to go to the pros wanna go to the high profile schools because they're one and done with exposure. And a do I hate joke. I'm Jay talk about one in don't NBA players talking about. No. And look they don't play any ACC a loaded conference like the ACC. This was a down year for for the big east. This wasn't even a vintage big east year. And they were they were three games on during the conference. So this was a disappointing season. You could talk all you want about the recruiting and the players aren't playing together. And this and that but this team in a down year for the big east and one wasn't the greatest conference. They had a bad. You had enough talent to be a lot better than this course salad. Mass Beth, Sal, how are you? Hey, guys. How you doing? What's up? I go back like you Joe Saint John Walter berry, all autumn great guiding I go back even farther than that. But anyway, go ahead. I'm always sunny, don't remember, you're older than me. You don't remember Sonny dove into McIntyre brothers and all those guys. All right. I'm bad with names. Point then John program to me, it's sort of like. And one of the reasons I think, and I love Moen's and even at the coach. And I'll tell you why. Commercial? I've seen on TV. And who is it? The Yukon basketball coach Gino with. Yeah. For the win. A commercial? He tells people that they what this history to your success. You want to know the truth? Basically, I have the last word when I when we get nitty gritty time. I'm the only voice, and that's the way it's always been. But I watch quite a few phone John and even left late, and they got some young coach in astute. And he's walking out in the huddle. Like, I think that's his issue coaching because I agree with your assessment on the fact that he is very calm. He's not a screamer. He's not a yeller. He's very different than coach early. He's coach Willard. But do you think that's a problem? Yes. You shouldn't have your distant. He is. But he's yelling very loud and tell them what the gloomy, but maybe that's just his style is different. See I I don't think the results are good for Christmas. And maybe maybe his style isn't working. But I also don't want to just say, hey, you can't have that style. You have to be loud and screaming and get teased away. Coach early. Did. I think guys are different. Yeah. I mean, look at the NBA you could say the same thing about NBA coaches a lot of them act different. So I don't know if that's necessarily his number one issue. Number one issue is the results. Yeah. No. That's it. Eric in Bridgeport. Connecticut, Eric, how are you? Hey, John F how you doing? I couldn't agree with you more with Saint John's. I'm a big Carolina fan. I followed Saint John's a little bit because I've been following Moustapha. High school days, he was pointing at Sacred Heart, Connecticut. Watching that kid for a while. I think he's a great talent. And the thing yesterday that basically. And turnovers are absolutely horrendous. But the one thing I gotta give credit for her own life. You know, he kept talking about took a lot of charges. And he also question I have for you guys. Do you think is going to go to the NBA and be? Goes to the NBA. I don't know what type of recruiting behalf. So I don't think Horon can do it on his own next year. I kind of think that if he may go to shop he's possible Mustafa heroin may go as well. I don't know where ponds would be projected is he an NBA player bond pond's. I don't know. He's an MBA. I got the opportunity. I don't know if this is good or bad to watch a lot of Isaiah Whitehead on both. All right. And then with the nets. Yeah. Zia Whitehead is a borderline. Yes. And player of the G league player, right? Watching him in school. And he looked like he was an NBA player. He was outstanding like miles pals NBA player. I don't know if he is. I don't know the easy terrific player. Get college player, but I don't always NBA player. Joe and Clark New Jersey, Joey how are you? What's up guys? Maybe six six one. But the guys ranges unbeliev less the thing when he gets going he could shoot from anywhere. About it. As far as tonight's game. I know everybody's got everybody was of course, undergo. Girl king. But the funny thing is said, but you know, the thing is I'm worried. Slow story. So you watch I went out, and they come back delay. But nevertheless. Yeah. For fourteen three games where they could bury you with those threes, but you don't want to get behind fast game. So that avoid about. But who knows these games crabby? That's the thing. You don't know what to expect an also on the opposite end when you face a team as good at shooting, the three as Wofford if the hall has an early twelve point lead, I wouldn't be too because those leads can disobey God, very very quick, very quick. But miles Powell has been tremendous. He's six two. I don't know what he is it the next level. But I know he's made quite a jump this year and is clearly vegan guy. And I thought he had a pretty it. Looks sorta online game winning three attempt the ad against Villanova in the big east tournament. Not that it would have mattered seed wise, what the hell would have been the difference instead of a ten a nine right, which puts them online better off Wallaby. It's going to be Kentucky if they win. But I mean, still you're better off being a ten. Yeah. When you're in that seven to ten you're gonna face a really good team in the second round amount of what no doubt, John and Tampa, John. How are you? Hey, guys. Hey, evan. I I wanna touch on Seton Hall, also, and and you've already touched on it. But I always see I'm a diehard fifty year old Seton Hall fan. I go back to the final four years been going since I was a kid. But I always I always feel I try to be objective. But I always feel like they do get screwed. I want to give you a one stat from the the team few years ago you'd been referencing that team is had twenty four wins and won their conference tournament prior to that any team that had twenty four wins in a major conference and won their conference tournament. Never got worse than a three seat. They were given a sixty that year. Zag out in the west coast downright criminal next year. Here's what I'm said about this year. Listen like, you said between the seven and a ten I totally agree. I thought they deserved better than ten, but regardless you're playing to one or two. Rather been matched up with Duke. I thought it was totally unfair for the committee to put them up against Kentucky. Purpose. They did it on purpose. You know? Yeah. I think. Like those rematch. Of course, they did just like you said just like they put Patino up against the Louisville. Bobby Hurley would a chance to play buffalo. All it. I gotta say though, I would not have rather played do would rather than Kentucky. Duke is an NBA team played Duke. Even like, even like would fairly playing Gonzaga not that they're going to win. But at least like they might be a glimmer Duke, there'd be no glimmer. Yeah. Right now, it would be a glimmer, but it would be very tough to find. Yeah. Well, if Williamson went and Barrett went down, it'd be very difficult to fight though. I will let me add at this point. I'd love to see Seton Hall Duke, they'd be matched up an asset. It would kill my bracket. Yeah. Right. You're not gonna win. Anyway. That would be fun Aleki port. Al. How are you? Thanks for the call. Hey, girl, Saint John's in that one game. Time. Yeah. They also hit a game winning three and Saint John's missed all their free throws down the stairs. Anyway. Wait a minute difference. Molly. How can anybody denigrate the guy he just got the knows more about basketball Pitino job? Again. He forgot you know, what I mean. Three. No, wait a minute. You could say whatever you want about Rick Pitino as a college coach then. And there's no comparison between Rick Pitino. Chris. As a college coach. Hold it. Do you realize? Whatever, you know. You can call them. Whatever the hell you want. Rick Pitino coach in the history of college basketball to win national championships with two different teams. Don't even don't even put Chris. And I love Mullen. Don't get me wrong. Mullins got a long way to go to beat a college basketball coach Rick Pitino is you say whatever you want about Rick Pitino nonsense with the recruiting stuff that happened in Louisville. The investigation. He was in that they say. You know, the school had a fire him you could get on him for anything you want to get into did a bad job with the Celtics. You could say anything you want about Rick Pitino. But there is no comparison between Rick Pitino as a college coach and Chris Mullin, Chris Mullin's got a long long long way to go to be in the same sentence as Rick Pitino as a college basketball coach, and I love Mullen. And I bet you Chris Mullin would tell you the same thing. So don't give me this. You could call the Tino a clown. If you wanna call, but he his point was in its week is that Well, Chris Mullin knows more basketball than everybody. And that may be the case, but we're talking about coaching and just because you know, the most doesn't translate great coach. And so far what I heard from our last caller is a bunch of excuses. That's what I heard. Yeah. It started with the excuses of a bad call the Seton Hall game which was but that's an excuse. And it continued with. Chris Mullin's only been there. He's been there for four years. Dential term. That's not five. Yes. Yes. And yes, the first year he was there. There were awful. They lost twenty four games. They were awful. And you could argue they've gotten better every year, which is sort of true. And I'm not saying you should be fired. But don't act like he's been your Chris Mullin should only wind up being what Rick. Have the resume that Rick Pitino has as a college basketball coach when all is said and done he should only get that. And I'll give you this. Bobby Hurley Hammy coach state last night. He's been there for four years. Saint thank you compare. I here in Arizona state. They were terrible second years there. They were terrible. It don't happen in the third year. He made the NC double A tournament. You know, what happened the fourth year this year he made the tournament and beat Saint John's so same amount of time. I look at the results, and what do you see so to be fair? And when you talk about how he hasn't been there, very long. And I would admit that Bobby Hurley took over a program that has been better than Saint John's at least over the last decade. Okay. Okay. But don't act like Mullins been there for five. And and don't be disparaging Patino gonna go. Look, it up say like, I said, say whatever you want about the guy, and I had my issues with him when he left the Knicks the way, he did, you know, he couldn't wait to get. Leaving the Knicks to go to I guess he went to Kentucky right from the. I mean, come on. He's a great colleagues wanted a great college. It's not even debatable. Shouldn't be a debate. We'll give you a bracket a little bit later on John hayman's gonna join us at eleven we'll come back with more your calls beningo and Roberts here in the mid day. All right. The spring sales.

"One of our top stories. President Trump has said time and time again that one of the reasons we need border security is to stop the inflow of drugs into our country.

Our national leaders are just dismissing the massive amounts of death here.

"The Georgia angle of like I understand that Notre Dame is probably not a better roster than Georgia. But at a certain point culpable has to have a little bit of the element of what we are. We are most used to in sports, which is like a win mean something, and if you win you get something and what you get is either trophy or a chance to play more games. I understand that doesn't fit comfortably into college football because the schedules are all different and these teams don't play this. So it's hard to compare them. But at a certain point, you gotta fall back on results. Keep assuming about your hypothetical is certain but Georgia would definitely beat Notre Dame. Because that's what I said. Well, I don't know we won't know. So let's just go. What we never. That started a road the year after floors. They won the title. Remember, they were sputtering all over the place with James and they were undefeated. But Stu had him ranked number sixteen. They almost out of the top four entirely. It was crazy. But again, but we all knew they were gonna get exposed at some point. But we also under that premise, by the way to like we all knew they're going to get exposed some point. Let's say that Notre Dame now goes undefeated again people value it well rescue by ask on your Now, hour. we got the rescue by. They got their asking by missed by by Alabama five years. And then let's start going back to this. All right. Let's not going back to all their like new year. Six bowls Owen six you're going to. I'm not saying, it's right. But you're going to get people anytime Notre Dame gets into one of these games. They get blown out. So why should we take them very serious? Well, there's no look that's all that's going on a void. Well, no. I was referring specifically to that team or they I don't remember all the details. They had so many crazy comebacks, and it was they were living very dangerously with frustrates me. A little about the criticism of Notre Dame. Is that not only the two thousand twelve hundred team needed? Triple overtime to beat Pitt and ever Golson was totally ability like just game team. Almost lost the ball state three four months ago before you in book took over as quarterback like people mentioned that Vanderbilt almost lost. I went back and look day lead the Vanderbilt game. For the entire game. So this team basically, I mean, John Walter said we had on his very unusual for nerdy. And fans to watch a team that beats people pretty comfortably for the most part. They weren't like playing like what you it'd be like a fraud team was just athletically, we recruiting rankings suggest they probably don't have the talent of clumps in Alabama. But how we want to determine the playoff teams on the two four seven composite rankings. But what biggest us? I would also say also say this again like I was pretty confident no matter what two teams you put against Clemson and Alabama you were going to now they were going to write. I don't think. So you say, well, you know, again, like the recruiting rankings don't work Dame's not and not they don't have the depth of talent on their roster. But wire we playing these games at all. Yeah. We then let's just skip ahead to Alabama. Clemson. And the fact the matter is every once in a while the team with the lesser recruiting rankings wits. I don't the end of the day that I think those guys will be discussing the most I think is like you don't we don't need eight teams to determine the national. We don't somebody. I had no idea about the stat until this week. But you know that the playoffs which are now at twenty four they've grown over the years from like eight to sixteen and has never had a team that wasn't one of the top four seeds win it. Right. So you always blow. Yeah. Look at their numbers, North Dakota state crushes every out all the team. If you want I don't know that it's going to if anything it's going to give Alabama and Clemson more chances. Right. Like oh. While only they finally went ten and two, but they were number seven. So they got in and they got hot and they want it. But there what there is a legitimate concern about is this thing is becoming increasingly just the SEC and the the whole goal of the playoff was to be a national event..
