The Biggest Mistakes People Make During Negotiations with Kwame Christian M.A. Esquire
"Would you say. Kwami is the one single most important thing that we need to know to become a better negotiator. Basically sum up your entire world in one sentence. Here i guess is what we're asking easy easy you're always negotiating that's really it. And so the name for my podcast negotiate. Anything for the reason that i want. People to recognize that they're constantly negotiating. So the definition. I like to use for negotiation. Is anytime you're in a conversation and somebody wants something and so constantly negotiating so whenever. I am doing these trainings and i ask them. When they're negotiating they always start off with family. I then friends and then people at work. And then even if it's procurement people are negotiating deals or real estate folks. Then it gets those type of external negotiations and so the people were going to negotiate with the most are the people who are closest to us and so the number one thing that people need to recognize when it comes to negotiation is that negotiation is everywhere. That's one of the biggest barriers people have is that they have low negotiation awareness. They don't know when they're negotiating and if you don't know you're negotiating then you don't know to use the skills. I love that. Because i know so many people that we talked to in. They're like well. How do i practice my negotiation. I don't get into enough situations like contractors or with business partners or with vendors. That i feel like i can practice enough and i think you just said it perfectly there. You should be practicing every day whether you're talking to your kids whether you are at a restaurant and trying to order something that might not be on the menu anytime you're talking to somebody in either side. What something. It's a great way to put that you're always negotiating to. There's always the opportunity to practice. You have to put yourself in the mindset that is negotiation absolutely and i remember i was listening to one of your episodes before i think it was on the ship. Bigger pockets episode and carol. One of the things you mentioned. Was that the simplest thing you can do to practice you. Negotiate digest practice listening. Not talking in a conversation and it's really hard to do and it's so hard that i created a challenge just for myself maybe i'll make it public something like that. But it's just the listening challenge and i remember. I have a five year old and around the holidays. My son was acting up a bit in school. And so i said you know what i'm to take him to work with me and i will bore him to death and then he will appreciate school more. My mom thought it was a horrible idea and says she started off the conversation. Just criticizing me. And i said oh. This is an opportunity to practice. Okay so for fifteen minutes straight fifteen minutes straight. i didn't say anything other than summarizing. What she said asking. If i understood correctly and then asking what else fifteen minutes straight didn't say anything and i was dying inside. I want to make it abundantly clear. So it's not easy not easy at all to do and so we got to that fifteen minute point and she's like. Are you going to say anything. I said listen. Mom i just wanna listen. I am here to just hear your perspective. What else do you want to say. And then once. I got to the point where she said nope that's it. I said okay. Would you like to hear my perspective. Sure and then. I gave my perspective. She agreed right now. If you think about that conversation if i would have started off if if i would have started off that conversation would not have gone very well right but i went through that painful process of listening for the moment because it was effective in the moment but also thinking long term. This is a practice opportunity. If i can do it in this moment it'll be a lot easier in the future. And then at the end of the conversation. I asked her for feedback. I said how did you feel during this conversation. What could i have done differently. What could've done better. I'm seriously thinking about every single conversation whether it's with my five year old my wife and my mom whoever it is as a practice opportunity because it makes those bigger than more transactional negotiations a lot easier. I want to suggest that. Everybody just hit rewind ninety seconds or one hundred twenty seconds and listen to that again because if you learn nothing else from this episode that's going to change your negotiation ability right there. That's gonna take ten times better. I heard a quote the other day. And unfortunately i can't remember who said it and so who attributed to but something along the lines of most of us when we are listening to somebody else auk were thinking most of the time about what we're going to say next as opposed to what they are saying and when we do that. We don't really get the other person's viewpoint we don't really comprehend what they're saying. We're just thinking about how we're going to argue it and how we're gonna get our point across and so what you said was so important. I do wanna go back to one thing because you had an amazing nugget in there that you kind of glossed over. But i think is super important. I'd love for you to expand on it if you don't mind but you talked about during that fifteen minute conversation with your mom. You were reiterating back to her. Your interpretation of what she was saying and it wasn't just is a time filler. Wasn't just for you to have something to say. What was your reason for. Taking the time and reiterating back to her. What you thought she was saying. It's called the empathy loop and so what you do. Is you summarize what the person says and you do by saying this. it's a really simple format. Correct me if i'm wrong but it sounds like you're saying x. y. z. Is that correct. And then you give them the opportunity to correct you and so this serves two purposes number one. It shows that you're listening and number two. It gets you points for listening. I think about it in terms of a game right where the other side is the referee. It doesn't matter if you're listening if they don't believe that you are in fact listening right and so what i do there is. I say yeah. Am i right there. And then they could either say yes or no and the added psychological bonuses. This people feel like they are in control when they have the opportunity to correct you. Think about it as a child and a parent who's correcting in school teacher versus student. Who's correcting who right. And so i'm saying you correctly. I'm giving you the power in this. Interaction makes them feel safer. Makes them trust you more and makes them feel more in control. Even though i'm not really conceding anything by doing that.

How are changes to sexual harassment rules working in schools
"In May, the Department of Education made sweeping changes to title nine regulations Peter Medlin with W J reports on how colleges and universities are coming to terms with new policies. Many advocates in school officials say will chill reporting the new regulations changed the definition of what qualifies as sexual harassment under title nine to meet. The new standard harassment must be quote severe pervasive and objectively offensive. She Wa Patel is the Director of justice for students survivors at the National Women's law center. So these rules kind of in total really just turn title nine on its head as a civil rights law says they raised. The threshold of what schools can choose to ignore, and it's a departure from guidance that's been in place for wrong twenty years if a student isn't being outright denied equal access to a program or activity that might not be enough. So that means some substance would be forced to endure repeated an escalating levels of abuse before they can get help. The new rules also require institutions of higher learning to dismiss reports of harassment the happened off campus. Now, they'd had to put together a separate sexual misconduct policy to apply to those situations. This has ramifications for online harassment especially as many schools move to. More virtual instruction during the pandemic faith Ferber is a student engagement organizer with no your nine. She says, if someone's harassing you in a class zoom meeting that would be covered but if someone is sexually harassing you over facebook and then you have to see them in the zoom classroom that wouldn't necessarily be covered a northern Illinois University. Title Nine Coordinator. Sarah Gardner says they do have procedures to help students. We had the opportunity to see okay even though it doesn't reach this level of conduct how we address it as university but as faith ferber says the problem is that places like and I You could ignore those cases that they choose to, and she says, the Education Department isn't there to protect students either we can't count on our schools can't count on the government. So all we can count on is students and student power to really make a difference in holders schools accountable at a you students held protests last year on the basis of the university was mishandling investigations and the process was slow and apathetic. The university hired another coordinator and Garner says, they're much better equipped to handle their case load. Now, the new regulations are over two thousand pages two, thousand, thirty three to be exact and. The policies themselves fit into the last thirty pages or so the reason the document is so long as so that the Department of Education headed by Betsy Devos is trying to justify why the chains are needed and respond to public comments. She Wally catalysis says there were more than a hundred thousand comments mostly opposing the new rules they were school principal. There were mental health experts over nine hundred trauma specialists joined a letter and raised concern about the rule. So the significant opposition and yet they continue to move forward Sir Garner A, you were one of the many schools that Senate comets harshly not. Many concerns made it into the final regulations. Patel says, the provisions were largely unchanged from what was proposed, but there were also a few changes that weren't even in the proposed rule. So they didn't have a chance to comment. One example is that colleges and universities are now barred from dealing with complaints by people who aren't actively participating in an education program that means a school won't be allowed to investigate a complaint of sexual harassment if the survivor already graduated or they transferred or let's say they dropped out of school because they were sexually assaulted and they don't plan to re enroll and colleges. Could dismiss cases when the respondent who's being accused isn't enrolled or employed by the school but tell that could include professor who retires or who resigns after abuse comes to light. Another chain that wasn't included originally reiterates that the department's guidelines supersede any state law and some of the new title and changes are in conflict with Illinois. State Law one forces those going through an investigation to undergo cross-examination in a live hearing and as Sarah garnered I says, we have a state law that says, you cannot cross examiner one another. This is the price sexual violence and Higher Education Act however now, the federal. Regulations. You must cross examine each other in public comment. It stated that this quote turn educational centers into courts of law and allow for parties to be subjected to quote demeaning inappropriate, and irrelevant probing there waiting for the Illinois Attorney General. Kwami Raoul away in he along with seventeen other attorneys. General is suing the Education Department to block the final rules from going into effect. Garner says they'll find out if they have to proceed with the guidance on August fourteenth there are countless other issues advocates say make the process more difficult for the people involved and for the school conducting the investigation and Peter Mullen.
Recipe Developing From Home
"Big difference between coming to work at the World Trade Center and you're in this two thousand square foot kitchen with every pot and pan and spice that you need. You guys are now in your home. Kitchens with spouses and kids and pets and everything Solo. What's been the biggest challenge for you? It's just getting organized. I think I'll just I'll have a plan at the beginning of the day and then it never. It never goes according to plan. You know like today. My Pie melted. I thought I'd take your Pie. The I forgot to put an oven thermometer in there so I think the temperature was in right and then the crust. Just Chris what about you cooking in freeing up? The space to cook is a constant challenge but the hardest part is Ben when I wanNA take a great photo of something. It's like the stars really have to align like to SOLAS point. It can't be the day that you're crust decided to slump like right off. You know like into the abyss of the bottom of your oven. It can't be a day where you you have to be on my kid duty the entire day. It's like I need like the daylight I need to go out into my backyard. I need the food to look right at the right moment. I need to like have my entire setup and I've found that with certain dishes like I've been doing a lot of stuff with Spring produced and you have to start thinking like Stylus to get the best possible photo. Let's talk about that because typically when we're at work you guys developed the dishes in the bottom fifty test kitchen and then there is a photo department with professional photographers and stylists food stylists who take that recipe and then bring it to life in the form of a photograph. Now that we're all at home. You guys are the photographers. The prop stylist. The food stylists uric a one man band. How has that been working? You go ahead so well. Prop stylist have a prop cut that lockdown. Today's cloudy no photos happening today. I don't know it's just. It's just a I've realized it's a lot harder than I ever imagined to just like. Make a hard look at like every snow pea. When I'm playing something I just WanNa make a taste. Good and get it on the plate but when you're looking at it through the lens of the camera you suddenly realize Oh that mentally phys wilted this snow. Pea looks crooked This plate isn't as clean as I thought it would be. So just I guess I need to like slow down when I'm playing a little bit more. Because all of the flaws are magnified on camera. You have to build your dish in the dish on the set the way of food style would you can't really you know. Put the soup in the bowl back in the kitchen and then walk it outside. Yeah you know I mean it would be nice if we could but unfortunately that's just like not how great food photography works right. It's like you need to construct your dish. You need to construct each pleading of something and then you have this window of time. Clock is ticking. You know the colors are going to be vibrant and pop for some window of time and then you're going to start to lose it you know what are some of the dictates you received from the photo department in terms of how to shoot for a website like monoply dot com. The biggest thing for me was simply the idea that we need to shoot everything landscape and portrait like. I know that sounds silly but if you are somebody who uses instagram. And you use your iphone camera. Whatever your phone camera on your phone. Chances are you're used to thinking of food like as a vertical kind of proposition but a lot of the crops we need for our websites are landscape sort of orientation and that means you need to sit there and get both orientations and and I know that sounds like okay. Well that's just easy. You turn your phone but man. You'd be surprised how easy it is to forget. You know like taking like multiple orientations of something so those a lot having to do with kind of leaving negative space. When you're taking photographs making sure they can see plenty of surface to that they can crop in with different dimensions and different sort of aspect ratios but then yeah just the simple fact of a landscape and you had mentioned taking your food out to your backyard or you guys trying to shoot everything and natural light. Yeah I mean I don't know about you sola but I have to like the the light in my apartment you know like I don't have any kind of lighting setup you know so we're really behold into to natural light whether that's like a great window location indoors or really in my case it's got to be outside so the weather has to definitely cooperate. One day the wind was blowing Chili flakes off of my plate into my eyes all over my surface. It was. It was pretty extreme which photos just so the listener can get a sense of what it's like for you guys to shoot something at home. And then I know you work with Lower Murray and our footer department to help sort of tune up the the finished product. What photos are up now on site that each of you have shot that the listeners can go take? I don't think anything from me. I think soon you're gonNA see some dumplings. That was fun because I had to get my husband to help me He was the chopstick hand model. And then it was kind of interesting trying to like. Get the right angle to somehow. Like get where. He is. Get the camera where he is critical about you. Anything up on side right now the listeners. Check out what I have done. Let's see spring hot and sour soup. That's unhealthy ish. And then I did a pantry pasta recipe. That was tied to the youtube videos. We did of all of us doing pantry pastas. That's going to be basically. I think it's going live today but it's like a Pantry. Pasta with anchovies peas. And then yeah how this oxtail recipe. I'm going to be working on from chef. Kwami on at Kith and kin. So yeah excited to get going on that. But everything's been slow. You know getting to groceries this stuff that we need has been slower. We have to plan so far ahead so it's not just the weather it's like literally what's in the fridge typically Solo. You are someone. How should I put this? You can be rather meticulous with your testings and you can go through multiple iterations of a dish till you get to a point that you're content with it so I know you've been developing this. Is it a peanut butter and Jelly pies academic helping this for Ba from before quarantine like it feels like? I spent my entire life making this guy and I don't know why so. Are you just ordering lots of peanut butter through through five peanut debriefing or five jars of peanut butter? My husband just got sixty ounces of frozen fruit this morning from target. It's due on Thursday. Wish we look how. How many versions of the Pie of you created so? I guess the hardest thing is because I don't have everyone's feedback. I just keep going back and forth so I made some hand pies and then I did some pop tarts with an icing did pie pie and then for fun. I just thought I'd try slap pie but I think Chris. I think Pi Pi Regular Pie might be the way to go really so this is so interesting. Because this recipe and like this development process has taken a journey that really started back one World Trade Center like six weeks ago. I WanNa say and I feel like we've been sort of responding almost in real time with this recipe to like what's going on in the world in terms of like the ability of it right so like I like. This was like okay. This is like kind of an opportunity to do something. That's like not crazy difficult but like a little bit more of a showstopper you know. Maybe there's like a kind of fruit meringue situation happening on top lot of color and then it was like ratcheted right back to this needs to be like a hand pie like literally make some dough slap peanut butter slap some some jelly in their closet up boom done so. I think it's been interesting to sort of see the evolution of this recipe. And you know how it's almost like kind of just responding to like. What do we think people are up for now you know? Do they need a project or they just want something. That's kind of simple and delicious. You know what I think. I think that there's that saying whatever I it's not about the destination it's about the journey. I think with Sola. The recipe is always about the journey. You leave no stone. Have to make it as bad as possible. I need to get the depths of hell before I can see the light. I basically I think that if I don't like try it with all of the flowers and know what's terrible than I. Just don't feel good about it

The Kingdom of size is one of the last remaining market in the world And it has about one point. Four million people so from very small tastes in Africa so I grew up in a family of entrepreneurs by parents. Aaron started off as teachers and I had the I guess I was fortunate. Watch them set up the own businesses whilst they were teachers indeed My Mom's side of the retail business. My Dad started my dad and my mom together started a consulting business in on. I was the African parents that to gifted children involved in your businesses so I I was involved in various aspects sometimes running by MOMS retail business. When shows away in my dad's business As dry vice over as Within the office realm so give me some good experiences. I was growing up so that I started my sneak of business so my mom used to as to start her business she should bring home some goods loss us as you said.

GimMe opportunity to focus and to build myself as an engineer Either back on payments in the payments industry so I started off my sophomore year. Interim Mastercard work through software engineering in Minnie eventually a fulltime start working for them within biometric authentication. So that's been my core experience in fulltime. So that's been fun and lastly ask you Just recently moved to the bay air so the months ago I moved here actually three days ago as exactly three months. Oh still new to the area. I'm looking forward to exploring the era meeting more people right so this is just like A visual of my journey so the first one obviously a very happy mander was a struggle. School is struggling computer science met. That's what I studied in the struggle by that was the stock to Mike On right side Suicide my former company mastercard. I was basically working with the team on pitching a new product. And then on the bottom. NAFTA's about two weeks ago at my company Verizon media where I was lunching my product media commerce across Fanti company so that was finding new and in the middle was before I left mastercard. I didn't own your career panel where talking about the importance of knowing you are in making taking that risk to do exactly what you'd like to do in which for me was moving from software engineering product which is really fun. And then on the Bottom Reich. Mike is Me and Harvard. Business School with few Khalid's their house. Basically doing some diversity recruiting which something really passionate about in I still I don You're doing that for her as needed right so started. So what is product management. And so this is the industry definition. I have watched hundreds of Product School Jones and I always see this. Come up all the time if you go if you do a quick. Google search is the same as an intersection said a defining part on the intersection of US tech and business and then in the middle of magic you there. That's what they call the product management. What I agree with this Sunday by actually like using take a few aspects is a big element that's missing so this stakeholder management basically between us experience on January and business which could be marketing in sales and so forth? But there's no immensely add tate's the product manage. I feel like being being a product manager. Also it means that you need to manage yourself so I think that's using here so my a different version. I think it's missing you as a product manager. It's a big element there and you'll see wise relates to imposter syndrome and then there's some other Aspects that could doesn't actually say what you do as a product manager doesn't indicate why you do what you do and then how you GonNa do those things knock greedy evidence within the diagram so wise park management so I think I believe park management basically communists to things. So it's the why and the watts. That's what the product manager owns to the Y.. is going to be the traffic strategy. And then what is is going to be the product roadmap that you define based product strategy And then basically across this you're GonNa define what commensal wet solvent that always problems to solve in product management by product manager. It's your job to kind of define on actually decide what's important to solve in prioritize and in all this is brought together by the product. That's the bottom so this is my definition of park measuring

I think Kwami Raul owes me a little something something because I kept saying I'm Kwami Raoul over that's what they said at the end of the night. They said your impression of him is what put it over your slogans. They want some salami vote for Kwami. You're not gonna lose with something like that. The who's Tommy right.

I do. I do. Also, I want to congratulate a friend of the show for winning yesterday in Nevada Dennis Hof. I saw that. And I don't know how good a job. He's going to do not taking calls. He is not taking calls today. How does that happen? And how does that make the person running against him feel for people? Who are not sure quite what we're discussing Dennis Hof who has been a guest on the show for a brothel owner in Nevada. He was running for state assemblyman, and he won by a landslide like like, not even close and he died. He didn't. Bad for several months, but that didn't stop the people Nevada for voting for him, which is really to the Nevada in another stiff in public office. Good morning. Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. You think much like the election of our current president? Where people said I'm fed up with the system. I gotta do something. I can't just keep voting in politicians. These people in Nevada said, we're not get anything done. Anyway, let's voted dead guy in and they did anyone by a lot. I would like to talk to one Vada in who knew he was dead and still voted. They all do. He was dead. Everyone of them. It was no secret. I've been told that it is a rule that once the ballot is printed up regardless of what happens to you be at a scandal. Be at death is in this case, it's still it has to happen. True. Steve maybe you can correct me. But wasn't someone taken off the ballot last year? And last election wasn't there? Some kind of little form that was passed out at all the voting places. I don't the polling places. I don't remember who it was. There was a mistake and they were on the ballot. Here's what it says. It goes down to the laws of Nevada State law Nevada haw for reality television, star a deceased let's make that clear deceased reality star touted as the state's most well-known pimp that looks good on a business card, by the way. Ran into an outspoken Republican for Nevada's assembly district thirty six before he died knocked Tober at the age of seventy two due to a state law Hof remained on the ballot and the state's leading GOP officials had urged voters to still cast their ballots for him in order to deprive Democrats have a chance to flip the seat. So that that's the politicians of Nevada Spain to people look we've got it that guy running for office. But isn't it better to put him in office than a living democrat? Really bad. So well, and then they went forward they went for it huge. He won by a landslide wasn't even close. But what if you're the politician running against him? And you lose to a guy that everybody knows his dad, but still voted for him. Don't you go maybe politics is at my call. That's what I said, I feel bad for the person. I don't understand how there could even happen. That's when you just say, I gotta find something else. People knew I'm alive in that guy's dead. And they voted for the dead guy over me. This is not this is not for me. All right. Let's do this. We'll take your yes. Story was sent to me in an Email from Ireland this morning, really. I should've read this headline ten times. I still don't understand it. So do people from other countries were they paying attention to the time? I would imagine. I bet. Yeah. All right.

"Welcome back to our special election. Coverage and many are calling it this midterms November surprise Donald Trump's own lawyer leaking allegations that Trump makes racist comments behind closed doors. Michael Cohen dropping that bomb in the pivotal final weekend of the campaign. The White House hasn't denied this story. And Cohen got specific alleging Trump said this about apprentice finalist Kwami Jackson, quote, there's no way I can let this black expletive win. Kwami Jackson is here for his first TV interviews since the story broke the Harvard Business School grad made it quite far on the premium season of the apprentice and Trump fixated on Kwami a tough competitor in some of his discussions with other contestants. So it comes down to a candidate with a high school diploma was led. Well, a Harvard Business School graduate Nick Guam as good. He's good. He's good talking. Sorry. Let me finish. Do you think? Wami is good. He's good. He's a Harvard guy. He's very smart. He's good with another pretty hard. Quami? Thanks for coming on the beat other than Michael Cohen's account you ever separately heard that Trump made those kinds of racially charged or racist comments about you. All right. Thank you for having me number one. It's an exciting time. It is midterm election time. It's the game that we've all been waiting for. And so we're all ready to jump in. And no, I personally never heard that language directly from Trump. But what I want to urge people to do number one stop playing racial bingo with President Trump. Stop waiting for him to give you the key words. So that he can get a triple letter score. And we can say, oh, he's a racist. Or some big thing has being knowledge that we already knew whether it's the way that he speaks about the NFL players the way he spoke about mayor Gil him the way he speaks about Mexican immigrants the way he speaks about the caravan. It's like how we could quickened can get to that. But let me fact fighting part of my job. This is a huge story. I think you, and I know if Barack Obama were allege credibly by a close associate attorney Friday before the mid terms of making racially charged racist, anti white statements. I think it would be everywhere all day all night all networks forever. And this. One like something seems for some to come and go. So on the on the allegation here. Do you believe Michael Cohen's account that Trump said this about you or based on your interactions or what you know? You're not sure whether it's true. No. I certainly believe it at this point said there's been enough data point that says that President Trump is a racist. And I think we should stop playing this. Rachel, bingo with him to figure out how many times he has to prove that he is who he is. Let me play for you. Afraid now, I'm not sure if I'm I don't wanna play bingo. But I'm afraid I'm gonna play something. Some people may not have heard that as part of Donald Trump's closing argument statement he made here at one of his rallies here. This was Tennessee October take a look. This great state state of Kennedy. See? Ward sue, the sweat and sacrifice of tough pioneer men and women people good genes, you have good. Gee, this is the state of Davy Crockett and Andrew Jackson. Do you think that part of Trump's closing argument these midterms has been racist? And if so what should people do about it? Well, let's not forget that Tennessee's. Also, the state of Nathan Bedford force in the state that the Kuku clan was started. So Tennessee has a mixed history. And I don't wanna take anything away from that great state. But let's play both ends of that spectrum in terms of what people should do people should finally get out and vote their conscience, what they have to realize is stop acting like your vote doesn't matter whether it was Georgia. Whether it's Florida Florida was only one by President Trump by one percentage point, which totaled about one hundred and thirty thousand votes of the twenty million people that are in flor-, Florida. So people have to realize these elections are going to come down to super super small module numbers. Maybe one county maybe a couple of precincts. So we have to get out and vote like Representative said we have to vote like we've never voted before..

All that you are and all that you already know is beneficial to someone else. Are you reaching out and connecting? Are you sharing an hour a week of your life with those who would directly benefit from your wisdom? I want to challenge you to look around and add deeper value, whether as a mentor, a coach and advocate or simply as a friend, that's what's been working for me in my life. And as you look at where you can add strategic deeper Val. Value I guarantee things will forever change for the better. I recently had the opportunity to hike the smell Kwami lake trail to otter falls with a group of Vietnam era. Veterans, the youngest in their band of brothers had to be in his early sixties, what they shared as we height added deeper value to my life and my journey to serving beyond the uniform. This group meets once a month and hike some of the toughest trails together. So as veterans, they can tell their stories in a unique way that bills bonds and reminds them that life is still valuable before we take a break for a brief commercial. My question is, are you committed to adding deeper value? And if not, can you commit to that. One of the reasons we do the podcast is to share information life lessons and motivate veterans, and those that love and support them in a way that adds deeper value. One of the communities that adds deeper value to my life and the life of over four hundred thousand veterans is the Facebook group veteran to veteran led by miss Yvonne, Maria books and thirteen other amazing admins. This group's purpose is to pass on vital information that is relative to other veterans. Their mission is simple. They stay on their site. Our job is to help give you the information you need.

Thank you to miss the Vaughan Brooks for her twenty years of service and for being an accredited veteran Representative head over to Facebook and do a search for this incredible community of veterans adding deeper value to veterans. Finding deeper value, do you hate what you do? But you love who you do it for. You just found deeper value. Maybe you are going back to school as many are right now, but you're not the most eager student. What is the deeper value? What do you gain when you succeed and earn that degree? What does it give you access to you? What do you gain by staying the course and reaching retirement? What deeper value did you unlock. As veterans at times, we might not see the deeper value in our service. We might feel that what we did drew in those times of service was only on the surface. Here is the truth, though you might not hair thank you for your service enough. Your service provided deep value to this generation and for generations that will follow to all the listeners find and provide the value. It could be as simple as planting a tree that brings shade not in your lifetime, but future generations will thank you for the deep value. Your efforts created.

So it's, amazing you see, Ben Franklin said beers proof that God loves us and wants us. To, be happy You're, getting back to, this Veterans Day parade we are not going to happen this year Mainly because the cost of ninety two million dollars is pretty prohibited. Three times more than three times the price that was first, suggested by the White House but, my question is and the president has done this before basically tapping into the private sector the billionaires in this country who. Leaned toward the, president and his initiatives tapping into been to maybe. Help finance it privately in other words it would. Be, mostly a privately financed for e I wonder if. That is a good alternative here see I. Tend to be opposed to the whole idea I think it's perfectly fine, to have military units in parades around the country as they happen on the fourth of July or on Veterans Day or. I mean that, kind of stuff that makes sense to me but. Saying that we're going to be giving a massive. Military, parade to show how military we are in Australia I just think it's unnecessary I think it is a waste of money and again. Is a guy whose son is in the. Military right now I'm quite sure the troop would much rather simply see that, that money however much it is spent on making sure they, have the latest tech to support themselves that they. Have the vests body armor that the. Vehicles you're driving in aren't aren't susceptible to that they have, the money spent in that fashion instead it's not as flashy and you don't have corporate sponsorship of the army but as far as affective -ness, of use of spending money I think most folks would rather go. That way now this may be a minority opinion it could be that a lot of people listening right now A. Great idea you clearly do Frank just. I think it's I think frankly throwing money down a hole And I would. Rather the, money be spent in some other fashion let's why hasn't said maybe money from. The private sector. You know I'm a. Little bit ambivalent about, the whole, thing, to be honest with you Right now But the veterans on Veterans Day are honored in local, communities anyway with, different, parades, celebrations dedications and things of. That nature it's not like it's going on noticed. And ignored we already are paying tribute and to those that served than those who serve and gave a gave the supreme sacrifice in doing so Yeah Email in from.

Cover up a clearly the Catholic church leaders wanted to hide the fact, that, pedophile sexual deviance priests they couldn't defrocked, them or communicate them or it. Would expose the truth now we know the church covered up the truth for a long time and it makes us doubt their veracity better to have dealt with each case harshly at the time of the occurrence rather than to cover it up for a few as. Her into Turkish forever the institution Next, if a society wants women to. Go topless on beaches then they will it sounds like ethical, relativism to me is either right. Or wrong for me to cover their breasts argument that. Men go topless at the beach so women should too bad analogy there is. An equal right, to bear nipples men and women both have rear ends but they don't walk around and thongs. Merlin real they do it'd be indecent exposure to expose one's bomb anywhere. Else, other than at the beach and in a thong so why not I women go topless just. At. The, beaches men, do well just equal rights, women going.
