"Afternoons. 4 to 6 Thursday at four. Do you think the Catholic Church should deny Holy communion to politicians who actively and publicly support abortion? The Catholic bishops are taking up that issue. Join me at four. All right. Good morning. It's Thursday, my favorite day of the week. I'm Ross. Thanks so much for being here. All right. I had a brain cramp. I must apologize. The thing I told you we're going to talk about right now is actually next Thursday. Not today that we've got these. These guests book to talk about the The live anywhere program, so we'll get to that in a week. How dare you? I'm sorry. I'm very, very sorry about that. Uh, you know, it's funny that you have her on the show this morning. Because I actually have something. I'm gonna save it for later. I've got one of the like the old time Australian broadcasters. If you could imagine if there was who is like an old school. Television anchor. Remember Andy Rooney? From 60 minutes. Was that his name? And this guy who would just sort of go on this rant. Imagine And angrier. Conservative, angry Rooney. Talking about Greta, who Apparently just joined us on the air. I've got that for us a little bit later in the show, but I want to do something right now that actually relates to the rush report. So we mentioned in the Ross report there that Yesterday was the Senate today. The House of Representatives. Passed a bill naming Juneteenth, which should be June 19th as a federal holiday. And of course, Biden is going to sign it. And then I'm guessing that that means that next year That it will be a federal holiday. They're not going to get it implemented for this year. They just passed it, but they'll be able to at least this year. They will be able to celebrate the fact that next year will be a federal holiday or something like that, and I'm good with it. I do think that it is well worth celebrating the end of slavery in this country, and there's no caveat to that. I think it's worth celebrating. I take Senator Ron Johnson's point that every time we give federal government workers and other paid day off, it means that American taxpayers are spending about $600 million for a whole bunch of people to do nothing. And I get that point. But my other thought is $600 million to get them to do nothing might be a bargain right? Because it might be that That that saves us money versus $600 million for them to actually do whatever it is they normally do, costing us more money by whatever. I don't mean all federal employees. There are lots of them. You do important jobs that need to be done. I kind of liked. I gotta say, I kind of liked Ron Johnson's Plan to eliminate Uh, Columbus Day. I don't think Columbus Day is very useful Holiday and the other thing is for the vast majority of Americans. Columbus Day isn't even a day off. So I I wonder about Juneteenth. Right? June, 19th is going to be just about two weeks from July 4th. Is it going to be a kind of holiday where everybody gets the day off? Like you know our other very major holidays. Or is it going to be more like Columbus Day, which is just sort of an annoyance, except that it's usually on or right around my birthday. So Um, you know, will it just be something that we call a holiday? But we all still have to work anyway. I don't know. So There's a guy named Pennell, P E N i e. L Joseph And he teaches at the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin. He's written a bunch of books about Malcolm X and Barack Obama and black power and things like that. He is the Barbara Jordan chair in ethics and political values and the founding director for the Center for the Study of Race. Democracy at that school. She probably get a a little sense of what he's about. I would like you to know before. I just embark on this next little thing here that I have already emailed Dr Joseph and asked him if he would like to be on the show. I don't have a response yet, but hopefully he'll come on the show and then I can talk about some of this stuff with him. I'll tell you what I want to do. I want to. I want to set this up here and then I would have come back and continue talking about it in the next segment of the show. But here's how he starts this article that he wrote for as an opinion piece for CNN. The Senate's unanimous passage on Tuesday of a bill to make Juneteenth of federal holiday Commemorating the end of racial slavery underscores both the progress in perils of the struggle Since last year's protests following the murder of George Floyd legislatively, inscribing Juneteenth as a national holiday is becoming a reality. 2020 saw much of the nation embraced Juneteenth as a black Fourth of July celebration. Scores of corporations, including the NFL, designated the data paid holiday as the nation's scrambled to respond to the monumental calls for racial justice. 2021 is different in so many ways. And I'll tell you what I'm going to take a pause here and when we come back, what I want to share with you is How Dr Joseph says the 2021 is different from 2020 on these particular kinds of issues. And where I think his rhetoric and those of folks who think and speak the way he does about these issues ends up doing more harm than good. Honey, What are you doing? Oh, you know, learning how to be a hibachi Chef. Why? Well, it was so easy to get an auto loan from Navy Federal credit Union. I needed something more challenging. Heads up. Do not throw that tripped me with decisions.

Of black grassroots insurgency in the wake of Floyd's death. Yet perilous challenges remain. GOP's efforts to cancel a commission to investigate the white supremacist riot at the Capitol in January 6th of this year.
