"kansas government" Discussed on The Conservative Circus w/ James T. Harris
"You are listening to the conservative circus. I am your ringmaster James. T Harris, we had to supreme court. Give a couple of decisions. Is Funny because you. We didn't hear a whole lot from the media on these decisions. Usually, if something that benefits to laugh, we hear a lot of it, but that doesn't necessarily mean we should be cheering. Here. We are once again late. June early July waiting for these folks in the black robes. Tell us how we're supposed to be living our lives. They help us understand what the Supreme Court is doing in the ring. We Have Jeff let's. He is an instructor at the leadership and freedom. Center in Gettysburg Pennsylvania. He's also my partner with the constitutional conversation, a podcast that you can download from the iheartradio APP and Jeff. What did you think about the decisions from the High Court yesterday? Well, this comes under the title James T of even a blind squirrel can find an egg corn every so often. I. You know I'll give you an example of this you know the faithless voter case, which basically is can electoral college electees in the state, so for president, the states and we have an election of the states in four forty, seven of the fifty states We have so many electoral college per state. You know the number of congressmen and senators and and We get that number of electoral college. Then we as a whole take that and vote for the candidate. For President instead of directly from the people and do these electoral college representatives have the ability to vote for somebody else other than they've pledged to vote war. And if they do that, is there a penalty? So this case had become ten a state. Impose a penalty because we had three electoral college members in Washington the State of Washington vote, they pledged to vote the Democratic ticket and they didn't vote for Hillary Clinton. They voted for somebody else. The state wanted to impose a penalty and the Supreme Court took this up because there was some arguments in the lower courts, but let me go to article two. This is very simple because in our Constitution James, P. States have a lot of power to decide how voting takes place in their own states as long as it doesn't. A break the Fourteenth Amendment or the twenty four th amendment in other words, the twenty fourth amendment was passed to say you can't have poll taxes anymore. You can't have these tests for people that want to come in and vote in the fourteenth amendment can't break people's equal protection clause, but in the first section of article two regarding the powers of the president it it basically says it does basically says it does say each state shall appoint in such manner as the legislature there of May direct. It's talking about electors for the Electoral College. So, in my opinion, this could have been very simple. They could have referred to article two section one which they do, and then case over, but of course we have a thirty three page opinion written by Associated Justice Kagan, by the way I thought it was Santa my your. There was a ping. It was Kagan. Yes. So you can kind of see that this is a fairly simple one in my opinion, and should have been easy to see and white had to go to this point James T it is a win, but it's more like a touchback or field goal rather than a touchdown, because this one is really simple, but it was not I, think there was one justice that recused herself, or maybe Kagan are sodomy or one just right, recuse herself. Guess. Maybe she knew somebody who was litigating, but yeah, it was unanimous outside of that, but I think words important, Jeff. Which is that I? Mean I remember the Hollywood set? To president trump was elected. The Hollywood said there was a huge campaign for the. To go in there and vote with the popular vote, instead of know following the state guidelines, and you had a couple of people who did the fact, so it's a shamed that this had to find his way our way to the supreme. Court, but it is kind of encouraging is an odd that you had a unanimous decision on on upholding the Toro College and the Constitution. It is, it is a good thing. James T. we have to take the victories when we can get them to simplify especially because of the recent rulings in the past few weeks on the civil, rights act right Daca with completely crazy won't do some podcasts on those. I do Kinda understand you're coming from. This was a touch. This was a field on the one yard line where we still had a couple of dowse got. This. This shouldn't have been questioned. They also yesterday. had a ruling out on these Robo calls is you know? Basically that case James T. Capital wrote the majority opinion. It was a six to three opinion and Kansas government. You know because nobody wants. Robo calls to their cell phones. That's pretty universal is at law constitutional, and can the government carve out? No Robo calls except it's A. It's a an agency trying to collect a government debt. and. What happened was these other amputees mostly, he had the American, Association of Political Consultants joined with some other saying. Hey, hey got to carve out. We want to have the ability to do this to. This isn't fair. And so they sued saying it's unconstitutional, but in the end. What happened is Capital wrote in the majority. Yes, you can't single out just. The government has a right to do this. Just throwing everybody else out. There's a lot of other technical arguments in there, but instead of just being left alone where the government can do robocalls now nobody is supposed to. This yeah, there was some dissenting votes. Gorsuch in there said you know he's got some opinions. He agreed and disagreed at the same time. saying you know this. Is All unconstitutional but Culture matters and he didn't say this. In my opinion, culture matters if all those people wanted then, that's probably what's going to happen..

"You certainly have to start with the The mandatory facemask ordinance proclaimed by the governor yesterday protects us all Texans everywhere in the state. I have to wear a face mask in public. Now. The exceptions are anybody who lives in a county where there are fewer than 20 cases of covert 19 and that's those are hard to find. I am issuing a face covering requirement for All counties with Mohr than 20 covert cases. This safe standard requires Texas to wear masks in public spaces with certain common sense. Exceptions Now the way it's gonna work, though, for those counties who have less than 20 cases they have to file paperwork pretty much online. With the state of Texas and then when they file that paperwork, then they pretty much get approved. And then they're exempt from the mask when it's other exceptions, being in a religious service if you're voting If you're at the polling place, you don't know where he's talking about. Common sense exceptions. I don't understand either one of them that you just mentioned so well. I understand the religious one because some religions I mean, look outside of Christianity. A lot of religions have, you know certain facemask requirements? Yeah. Clothing requirements, whether ted dresses or hats again, So I understand that the voting voting one is weird. I guess they don't want to discourage people. From voting. I don't know. I don't know if this would encourage or discourage people from voting. Other exceptions if you're less than 10 years old, So, our kids out there you don't have to wear a mask on. And if you're doing outdoor activities of your eating and drinking, Okay, so I don't see a huge about face by the way for the governor. Yeah, the last couple of weeks. It sure is Kansas Governor. Laura Kelly has done the same thing for her state. She has mandated the use of face master coverings in public across the state beginning today, Now it's a real quick before he even move on. Just a Greg Abbott's Republican that Kansas governor is a Democrat. I think that just goes to show you that the masks should stop being a political thing. Yes, like you asked, and health aren't partisan. Here's here's a little of you and I have never talked about this, but I don't I Generally speaking in both of those stories, I did not mention party right Governor. Everyone knows Governor Abbotts right. But Kansas government is in the story says that the governor, the Republican governor said I'm going What the hell has that got to do Anything We've got to stop doing. It's trying to stir up some sort of emotionally. The governor of Kansas is a Democrat. So what, right You mentioned this in the tea's Dave, at least five members of the choir and orchestra. At First Baptist Church, Dallas, where Vice President Mike Pence was this past weekend. Apparently they tested positive for covert 19 in June before the vice president came Remember the choir was kind of in the news because they're all the pictures of them singing and they're not totally socially distance and they're not wearing masks, so it just makes you think like how seriously where they taking that Here's the thing. The six people that in question who tested positive we're not at the church. When the vice president was there. I stayed home, but You still have to wonder because of the two week incubation period. How many other members of the choir might have? It might have been might have been infected and they send it. Obviously, if you don't like my pants, alright, Never mind him. That's beside the point. Really? It's right. You know, these people are performing in public without masks. Come on. Yeah, A trombone player just makes me kind of cringe because spit from a trombone travels a lot further. It does when you're talking to somebody. Ah, a lot like high school band class. I could get spit for my trombone to hit the flute. Ro stop. Not that I would try flautist. Not that I would try to hate it. Would I love brass instruments with boy Beethoven, You are all empty your spit valve. It's part of the routine man. Otherwise it sounds terrible. I know. I know. It's got to be done. But I think you ought to take a little bowl or a can or something. Just let it go on stage. Former Republican presidential candidate, Herman Cain has been hospitalized. He's being treated for covert 19 he was at the president's rally in Tulsa, right. They say he's not feeling too bad and he's he's not or anything, but because he's 74 years old. He is in the hospital, right? Another covert story real quick before we move on Uber is keeping there. Drivers and passengers must wear a mask policy was it ended in June, and they decided to just extend the policy. Now, they say, they've got it to where the driver has to take a selfie wearing the act of the mask and send it to you through the APP I've taken to uber's in the last month or so. And both of them very short rides. That didn't happen for me. And in fact, both times I had a mask in my pocket and case. They wanted me to wear one. But the second I got in without a mask. They took theirs off. They said. Oh, thank God. OK, You don't care that whole business about in case they want you to wear one. I think we have to. We have to try to set that aside. Yeah, I've done the same thing and I've done the same thing. They're places are gone without putting on the mask, you know? I'm just gonna pop into the store for a minute. No, we've got to do it Now. First of all, it's a It's A. It's a man mandatory thing right in the state, but also we just have to take into consideration other people's feelings.

That's the leadership I know. Guy I mentor people bring them in and I and I know you know that I can work with a with a good group of people and Kingdom on task and keep moving because you know if I had one in eighteen months nineteen months if I had one wheel falls off one flat tire. That's in the race is over. How do you look now and Ah Gui Gazelle Twenty nineteen as opposed to Guy Gazelle and twenty twelve when I opened. What would you look at yourself objectively. What are you you most impressed with. What how how you've changed in. What is that change. Oh boy what am I most impressed with. the the fact that I've been as resilient as I have been that because it's been it's been very rough. There have been some very I lost my lease and and we were closing with without without knowing where we were going. I had to pack up my entire theme park into shipping containers and store them in a parking lot wife not knowing where I was going to open the very next season and that's one of those things were in the time. I was just doing it okay. Let's we're just GONNA pack this up and solving the crossword as wills the so that time and time again. I think it is yeah. Any sensible person would have said. Oh lost the lease. Let's just smell the dinosaurs and move onto the next thing and now you know pack them into shipping containers took him apart. Art didn't know how to Tweeden. You know we didn't know how to take him apart but like brought the crew in and said we're. GonNa look at pictures of when they were put together and figure out how to take him up put Otamendi shipping containers and then we did find a a new location and the next year. We put them all back together again. This is in Jersey in New Jersey. Yeah so what prompted Okay Jersey Derby Kansas is a big stretch. What prompted the so here in Kansas they have the star bond can't program. which developers can qualify for a bond? If part of their development is a regional tourist attraction action and a developer wanted do a development in in Derby and needed the tourist attraction so he traveled all around around the country looking at tourist attractions in fact I met him at a at a conference of attractions and he came to feel safe dinosaurs in in New Jersey and thought this would be a great traction. I think this would be super in Kansas and he approached me and said. Would you be interested in doing this and and there's incentives for the attraction. I mean this and I looked at it and we sort of did a business plan and I came to Wichita and I really like Wichita and which does a good is a good place for a dinosaur traction. It's it's it's a lot of fairly well educated people. It's very you know the lot engineers for sure yes a lot of a lot of families it just seemed like a very good market and so that's that's how I ended up in and which Utah we had to get approval from well first of all the city of Derby had to approve it and then the a state of Kansas had to had to prove its I had representatives from the from the Kansas government flew from Topeka to to New Jersey and came into the dinosaur park and they said yeah we can see that this this is a this is a regional tourist attraction and that's how that's how it all happened. Does that's how I ended up in Kansas. I love this story. There are so many things explore with you on this with the sacred time though I guess what what is next for your what is what are you excited about with the dinosaur this report in any other projects. You're working on smacks so now that we've done to obviously the plan is. Let's try to do a third heard one and see what we've learned by doing to and see what we can do in a third so when you're a not for profit and you and you say your mission driven well your goal list to provide your service to as many people as you possibly can if you're UNICEF you want to feed as many starving children as possible well I want to to educate as many kids as I possibly can and if that means opening up one in Houston or Dallas or Denver or Santa Fe New Mexico. That's that's what I would explore now because I opened in New York City I or I'm six miles. AL's away I got a ton of attention we were on nightline. We've been on on all sorts of TV shows. Since then we've been on good morning America Fox and friends. We've been a lot of national and we were in the The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal which although they were covering us as sort of a local those are national public we were in. We were not all of that so we get a lot of calls if somebody's starting thinking about doing a dinosaur park if someone's looking for an you know we have a lot. We got a lot of calls from retail developers. WHO The you know trying to find retail tenants not the easiest thing in the world right now. They're always looking for something new to do you as we get a lot of calls from from different people and now we sort of we take all those calls. We don't leave any stone unturned yeah so so that's what we're doing sort of travel around and meet people and this is a good fit for the park and then look at the lessons we learned from from Derby and say okay. What are we going to do next time. What did we do right. And what did we do wrong and what can we can. We learn from it. I I think that one of the things that that that I really push on on everybody and have since I was in the theater. Is this sense of taking the responsibility you yourself and I'll give you a quick example in the theater. When I was there theater around the country theater attendance was down down and attendance in our theater was down and the artistic director of the theater at the time said well well. Our attendance is down because attendance in theater around the country is down. I said that's like me saying I'm fat because the average American is is getting fatter yeah if we are going to say that the responsibility is on something we can't control. We're just GONNA loose yeah. We have to look at everything and say what are we doing nine. What can we do and what is our responsibility and that's your I mean we were hit by superstorm sandy and yes. That's a that was a freak storm. It knocked over some dinosaurs but I was still. What did we do yeah well. We didn't secure or those dinosaurs yeah well. That's what we did. You know we can't control the storm is GonNa calm but all we can do is look at what we can do and what we did so oh. That's one of the things that we talk a lot about at across both of my parks. I love that and that's a great. That's a great point to end on. You're absolutely right that Person Accountability Hound Ability Personal Accountability as owners as an entrepreneur as what can we do right because the the other mindset like you said just breeds kind of a well and it breeds the mediocrity and the stagnation that that we see so prevalent and everything yet right.
