Stop arm indicate extended from class A misdemeanor punishable by no more than a year in jail and a four thousand dollar fine. I love it. I love it. It's a horrible dumb thing to do. I've done it myself really beat myself up about that. Because it's if you if you have a driver's license, and you still do this. You have no business having a driver's license. You have no idea what you're doing passing stopped bus without hitting a person would remain a misdemeanor punishable of five hundred dollars to twelve hundred and fifty dollars unless that vendor has been previously convicted of this offence.

They just can't stop for a school bus right now over some he told the statesman that that he approached the Bill from a parent's perspective and was tired of hearing about incidences of children being hit by a bus at bus stops.

And it's it's beyond me. How you don't notice? What's going on there? The flashing lights the stops on the, you know, the arm sticking at all that if you don't notice that then you should not be on the road period.

We're doing fine. Thank you very much. How are you? Well, so far so good. We're really expecting for later everything. Well, you never can tell it's like to be prepared. Okay. Well, your weather lady, tell me about what the next few days and the whole week looks like if you would well right now looks like the the fog and the drizzle that have been around and are continuing to be around this morning are still going to be a factor, especially the fog again for tomorrow and Tuesday mornings and even looking out beyond that that looks like this overall weather pattern isn't changing a whole lot. I think in terms of any noticeable amounts of precipitation more than just some real light drizzle. You have to look out to at least Wednesday. And even then I don't think I'd be promising a whole hot in the way of showers. I think there might be a shower or two around and that may be about it. We do eventually have a front that comes through that might give us a twelve hour window where we can have a decent chance for some showers. Maybe that's Wednesday night into Thursday hard to say exactly when in that stretch. But somewhere in that timeframe, and then beyond that, we'll see. A change. Once again, we're going to go from the warm air that we've gotten into now where I expect with a little bit of breaking for some sun today that will make it into the mid seventies. We'll go from that back down to highs in the fifties. At the end of the week is it spring. It's beginning to feel like at least here at least here. I think the people in the midwest and the northeast might be hard pressed to believe that no matter what the groundhog said, right? We do have a saying here in Austin, though, related to weather and it's on word through the fog. There you go. See it's a very very appropriate and not not not more. So early morning. It's pretty foggy up there. Ms abilities have been down on her quarter mile. And there was that way coming in Heather, thank you very much. You're very well. That's Heather with our gardeners weather forecast. Right there. Okay. Let's see here. It's Denise that's next. Good morning. Denise good morning. You were kind enough to answer a question for me today that cutting back my. Grasses? But I forgot to ask about bamboo newly this is the first win gone through within newly do I just cut it back like any other ornamental grass? Cut it down by two-thirds. I'm going to give that one to Neo because it's in his specialty area right there. Yeah. The bamboo newly is a great grass. It can be quite tall and get a little out of control. So depending on how the winner has killed it definitely any winter kill we would want to remove but the rest of it doesn't necessarily need to be cut back the same way. If you're wanting to kind of reset them, just you get a little more uniform growth out of it, cutting them back the same way, we talked about the other ones would be perfectly fine. Okay. I've got this one in a pot, and I kept it protected. It has a little bit of yellowing on some of the delays. I think that. Talking to a straight cut across about two. Come back fresh all over. Yes. You can absolutely. Get rid of that winter kill that. Yellowing? I would feed it a little bit being a grass type plant response tonight to Jin rather easily. And so I would use a fishy motion. And maybe a seaweed bland and push out some nice new fresh growth, and it'll be vigorous and fill in and be larger than it was last year easily. Great. Well, thank you very much. I appreciate is, ma'am. Thank you very much. What do you think? These natives don't need a lot of pushing. But she can get some size and better specimen out of it this year by beating it a little bit. Yeah. The bamboo mealy is a great one. I forget exactly where it's native to. But it doesn't amazing. Double check. I don't believe the bamboo Mulas native to Texas, but I'd have to double check the okay, we'll good. But yet, it's a big, beautiful ornamental grass. That has a great texture reminiscent of bamboo, which is why a lot of people really like it can be a really nice one. It won't be too long from now then I can say step off the wall, not even accurate and it won't make any difference anymore because next weekend is my last weekend here at Kilby Jay, I'm retiring from this program. Jeff fares will be taking over. That's why he's probably off this weekend. You're going to need a break springs coming in John's not going to be sitting here. John has been sitting here for thirty eight years now on the weekends with everybody and started some folks were younger and having their first children. Their children are now near forty years old. So it's been a long time. And it's been a fun time also visiting with people next weekend. We'll be the last weekend. So we'll have a good chance to reminisce talk about things events that have happened over the years some of the special guests that I've had over time. And maybe some of you remember, so am I lame jokes? If back believe any legacy behind after all of the time, those darn lame jokes John's, but I learned them for my dad, so anyhow, this is going to be my. Last. Well, next week is the last weekend and so Saturday, we will begin we will take questions, and I can be. As close as I can after all these years to some of these answers and the other one is that. We'll be gone. It'll be Jeffs. I've been with Jeff awhile. Now, he's worked with you have back there with the horticulture in the garden pharmacy. Right. And you know, him pretty well. Absolutely. And he's pretty sharp. He's a great guy, very knowledgeable. And he puts things in a way that are very easy to write. He puts them correctly. I don't understand. That's why he's been very good here. And the two of us had had a good relationship over this time. And I know that most folks have heard him very clearly know what he's talking about. Because he's worked in the garden pharma. He's seen it all he knows his plan. He's a big gardener. Tweet grower Gardner. So he has the expertise and the knowledge of the things that work and don't work and varieties that that he has preferred and have done well for him over time. Just like you. It's not like, so you guys didn't actually do it and giving lawn information and didn't ever have a launcher. It's because you've had these things that you're able to accurately describe them. No. But he has projects going all the time. I was working with him. He was always talking about some other new project. He was working on. ACC he has classes over there. He'll tell you more. I mean listeners more about them along the way as the classes form again. But he's an excellent one. I didn't want to leave KLBJ looking for another Gardner. I wanted to make sure that somebody thought like I did and recommended things the same way we do and have been able to continue the show in a way that program really in a way that. I would like it to be a hate the turnaround and become a chemically oriented program because some of these big companies come down, and they try to buy their way into the shows and Amazon radio marks user, especially has kind of said. Not that show. This is an organic gardening show. It would be offensive to the listeners that are out there, and that's money for them. And they've done the right thing over these years for me. And I really appreciate that part of it. Being here. Oh, these thirty eight years started with the Johnsons the Johnson family downtown. We were in a a basement studio down there before we moved out here. And it was quite a place. Television station, we were down there on son who's into and it was always nice to look out the door. And she kept his prior walking down the hall him mumbling, something or another. But it was always a good story about Austin. And so all of these years has been a really wonderful time to be in radio. And also, the most important thing is no matter what KLBJ has supported organic gardening. So I think that was a special thing also because they weren't doing that necessarily. And when we came on when I came on board. My only real advertiser that came on board with me and still here today is the Medina company. They have hung in here. They have supported the program, and he made sure that folks learned about them, and I made sure that they knew about the products, you know, so, but in has been one of the ones that really kept me going into beginning. So any? Anyhow next weekend will be my last weekend here at Kilby. J Sunday will be the day. We have the tailgate party. That's not true. Don't come down for that. But. Anyway, we have reached that day. I knew the day was coming. Mark seizure knew the day was coming. But none of which new win. It was. But I turned seventy two a couple of weeks ago. And that's when I started thinking more seriously about it or before that really. And so on my birthday, I came down to speak with Mark. And I should Mark we've gotten to that day. And so he said he knew it was coming, and, but we have a very good replacement. He'll continue the tradition of talking or Gannex, and I'm excited about what happens after this. Probably stay home and garden on Sunday mornings. We'll be right back to seventy percent.

We're we're we're we're already down this road toward genetic defects and deficiencies being identified. That's why this late term governors to say well after the baby is born. We'll take a look here and see what kind of deficiencies might have just kind of different. We know most of these long before birth now because of the. Scientific advances that have taken place. I'm just telling you start cheapening life this way. And then you cheapen it even further by claiming a baby isn't even a person a baby is not a human being folks, your next we're all next depending on who these people are how much power they get and the basis on which they determine who gets to live, and who doesn't and what if down the road a bunch of liberals decided to rather than have to put up with a bunch of opposition bunch of conservatives. Let's just wipe them out. You think that will never happen? It can happen. Well, no not tomorrow. But if this stuff doesn't stop in the next thirty years did any of you ever think even ten years ago that a major political party would be arguing for the right to kill a baby after it was born. If I had predicted that ten years ago on this program and told you that you all would have thought I nuts, and you would have demanded that I shut up. You don't wanna hear such things? That's ridiculous. You're going way way overboard rush. And yet here we are. And I wanna make my point in another way. I mentioned Obama mere moments ago. I do care about societal values cultural values, they're all we have. It's one of the many things that distinguish United States from everywhere else in the world. And I'm telling you the left is doing as much as it can erase all of these differences that that define American exceptionalism. We are the only nation on earth where in our founding documents the right to life is considered a right and specified. The right to liberty the right to happen. The pursuit of happiness. There's no other country that has ever codified these things in government documents. We all take it for granted. Because we grew up with it. And it's not been any big deals, then the way things are. But those are the kinds of things that define American exceptionalism not that we're better people and not that we're smarter. That has nothing to do with American exceptionalism. But let's go back. This is two thousand nine. So what is this ten years ago? Now it actually nine and a half years ago. June of two thousand nine the famous ABC special primetime questions for the president prescription for America. A member of the audience. Jane Sturm stood up. Mr president. My mother is now over one hundred five but at age one hundred the doctor said to her I can't do anything more unless you have a pacemaker. And I said go for it. She said my mother said go for it. But the specialist said, no, she's too old. But when the other specialists are her saw her joy of life. How full of life. She is the other specialists that okay, I'll put it in. I'm going for it. I'll put the pacemaker in that was over five years ago. Mr president. One hundred and five and happily alive. My question to you is outside the medical criteria for prolonging life for somebody who's elderly is there any consideration that can be given for a certain spirit, a certain joy of living of quality of life. Or is it just a medical cut off at a certain age? Let's stop and think what we're hearing here. A citizen at the White House is asking the president essentially under your plan. Can my mother continued to live and experience the joy of life. She's full of life under your plan. Would my mother get the pacemaker? And this is what the president of the United States told that woman nine and a half years ago. I don't think that we can make judgments based on people's spirit. That'd be a pretty subjective decision to be making. I think we have to have rules that say that we are going to provide good quality care for all people. End of life care is one of the most difficult sets of decisions. We're going to have to make but understand that those decisions already being made in one way or another if they're not being made under Medicare and Medicaid. They're being made by private insurers, at least we can let doctors know, and your mom now that you know, what maybe this isn't going to help. Maybe you're better off not having the surgery, but taking the painkiller. This is just. I can't. I can't fathom this a nationally televised special with the president of the who's not a doctor. He's not anything. Telling this woman. Well, government wouldn't do that. Because government hasn't done that. That's what Medicare and Medicaid me as well. They're not being made under Medicare government. If decisions aren't being made under Medicaid government, then there'd be made by private insurers, which are regulated by government. At least. Now, you notice how compassionate Obama got these last couple sentences. Did you notice he came alive when he thought he was being compassionate understanding, at least we can let doctors know, and your mom know that you know, what maybe this isn't gonna help. Maybe you're better off not living better off not having surgery. Here is a painkiller. So there you heard the leader of the free world your your desire to live. Not a factor. We can't use that your full of life. Sorry irrelevant you love being alive. Sorry. Can't factor that in. Why because we don't have the money to pay somebody these Intel Cortez and the rest of these clowns. We don't have the money. This is this is what ObamaCare was gonna causes why? But he started talking about death panels. I want to ask you to think about something. We've all been around babies. And many of us have pets pick him up as puppies. You can't miss in a in a child, you cannot miss in a newborn anything. The absolute thrill and love of being alive. You see it on their faces. You hear it in the lapse in terms of little babies, they just love being alive. It's the natural state until edge and maturity and life takeover start messing around with people's psychology. But in the in that period. Where you have Ross unbridled essence of innocence. You've got nothing, but pure, sheer, joy and happiness. Baby after baby after baby, I realized w shrinks are probably shout. I guess you're talking about average babies. Ninety percent of them are depressed at wish. They hadn't been board. Save it for somebody. That's not going to swallow your crap. The same thing with little puppies. That's the thing. You notice about them? How damned happy. They all. Are. They just you get the idea looking little babies, they actively love the idea of being alive. And now we go from that. We know that's the case. But we don't even want to get that far. We don't want to see the evidence of how much they enjoy being alive. We're going to wipe them out in the war. We're going to wipe out shortly after they get out down Virginia. It's just sick, folks. And it doesn't bode well. If you're a young couple on the verge of having kids you got to care about this. When life gets cheapened when it becomes a political characteristic when life becomes just a political issue. You know, how politics corrupt sprint everything? That it touches. Well, politics is touched your child. And when when the one thing that is the most valuable in the world human life when that becomes cheapen to the point that it's of less value than a turtle hatchlings. Or snail darter, or what have you better recognize their problems, and we can deal with this without preaching to women? That's not what this. Is about. The fix for. This is not penalizing women are preaching to them to fix for. This is gonna be a while. Because it's taken us a while to get here. This is going to require a reestablishment of moral boundaries. And foundations. And a number of other values that the left assist a medically sought to obliterate erasing wipe out over the course of many decades. Let me take a brief timeout we'll continue with more right after this safely.

"KLBJ today is sentencing day for Michael Flynn. We'll know a little bit later whether he's going to actually get a reduced sentence. No sentence or maybe they'll. Put them away for a little while. And sometimes a cover up is worse than the crime. So he's getting nailed for lying to the FBI. You know, it's always the line that brings down the politicians, and that's just amazing and people forget that people go, you know, Clinton Lewinsky. No, it was that. He lied about ninety times people they commit Sunday committed a crime. And then what they did maybe isn't even that bad or might even have a defense to it. But they're so adamant about defending themselves about it that the next thing, you know, they've rep themselves into all kinds of perjury and lying to the feds. And with all the people around Trump. Coming out as liars. It just doesn't feel good. Well, I agree. And I think that probably has something to do with President Trump does not want to give oral online live answers to Mr. Mueller while he wants to do written answers that are well coached by his lawyers to make sure that they fit the proper template. It was kind of interesting that Giuliani was on a couple of shows over the weekend kind of talking about how Trump story has changed a little bit and Giuliani was like well. Yeah. But he wasn't under oath. So it doesn't matter right. Well, yeah. Very good point. And the other thing to remember that even perjury again statue doesn't say that both stat. But both statements have to be under oath. You know, you made the statement one cannot be under oath and one can be under oath. It's just a matter of which one is the truth. So so no I hear where you're coming from. So that's going to be kind of interesting. Also, of course, you'd have one day closer to a potential government shutdown. We touched on this a little bit President Bush, President Trump looking for five billion dollars to supplement his border all the Republicans going. We'll look we gave you a billion last year. All that money hasn't been spent yet we've offered up another billion. Let's come to some sort of agreement sounded the late yesterday. Like, okay, maybe the Republicans were hedging a little bit here. But now this morning we're back to. Nope. We're standing our ground. So I don't know exactly where this is going to end up. Well, this is probably a stupid question. But do we know the final tag on the wall is is it five billion is that? No, no, no. Thirty billion or higher than that. So to me, this is just a way that the president thinks. Okay. I can use this to get a little more money. If I just keep doing this over time. Eventually I'll have enough to do what I wanna do. Right. The goal being that he will actually start building the wall and increments and just keep asking for billion out of time or that he's trying to fund the war chest eventually he'll launch the whole project because if Trump's not in long enough in this comes to an end, we're going to end up with like a little a little picket fence built sort of and there's conflicted. He go to somewhere. Reports because sometimes when Trump talks he says, it's already being started. We've already started construction on the wall. And then other ones were like where was I was one because I've seen like some prototypes. And things like this is this is the wall. I'm wondering well started. Or is this just sort of the, you know? Yeah. And he's gonna be backed off of the whole wall. Wall thing it's more now. Well, we'll have some high surveillance will have better repairs on the picket fences and things like that big offenses. But you know, what? I mean, the fences that are already there and technology will help a little bit more. That's going to be the wall the wall. Well, is there is there a wall that would actually work? I mean is there a is there a physical wall that would actually solve the problem completely down? Yeah. Obviously, not as a deterrent. Yes. Cut down a little bit. Sure. Is it worth thirty billion? I mean, we see a lot of jokes floating around the internet, if people Pelling themselves over the wall, digging under the wall, scaling the wall and all these different designs about how none of the matter because there's something wants to go over they're going to go. Anyway, they're going to figure I'm just wondering is there in reality a physical barrier that would actually work short of having a covered with barbed wire and glass, maybe none of that makes any difference. I don't know. You're listening to the best of Todd and Don on NewsRadio KLBJ..
