That's not their right to do. And when they do that they are there.

"That's exactly what this is. The this inflation bombed that they're proposing which some are estimating now could involve about four trillion. Dollars is going to only worsen the already frightening inflation. This type of inflation very often ends up carrying out a reverse robin hood mission where we rob the poor to give it to the rich. A small handful of people will get rich off of bills like these and other rich people who don't get more rich from it will be okay but ford middle class americans. Many of them are living paycheck to paycheck. Will be most hurt by these things. Is they find that. they're purchasing. Power goes down dramatically as we go and spend four trillion dollars. They want to pass this without the the republicans. Well there was a a procedure That goes through. The budget process known as budget reconciliation. That could allow them to pass something like this depending on how they set it up there scenarios in which they could pass it with a simple majority without a single republican joining in with them. It's one of the things that makes it so scary. They could end up doing this. And meantime we're already seeing even with the inflation that we've already created. We're already seeing. That gas costs a dollar more per gallon than did about a year ago. Chicken this twice as expensive as it was a year ago. Diapers cost thirty percent more school close trips to see family. They're all really going up in cost at an enormously. Fast rate americans know why and they know it's because the government keeps printing money in every new dollar off the presses makes the dollar and your wallet less powerful when gasoline those from two dollars again to three and a half dollars a gallon. That's a dollar and a half more every american. I wonder if that's the least the trillion dollars that is an enormous amount of money and That's not a department of the poor and the middle class right in many of them. Feel it twice particularly if you're working in a job that requires you to use a car that you have to refill frequently So you're you're getting hit twice You know i at the pump where you see that dollar fifty a gallon make a big difference and you see it again as that same fuel price gets folded into everything. We purchase gets folded into Consumer products that we buy because everything gets more expensive to build and especially to ship as the price of fuel goes up that much. All of these are being dramatically worsened and in some cases caused by government action itself government action that Democrats are pushing another big thing in in washington. It's what's going on with facebook google and twitter. What's happening The president has been talking to facebook. Is that correct. The all look government speech not sense when government and big business combined against american free speech. We should be worried. The first amendment makes it pretty clear that government may not infringe on the freedom of speech. And there isn't an exception if you can mix facebook and other tech giants to like you and to do your dirty work and in the united states it's the people not the government who get to decide what they believe. And what's true. It will information. They're going to repeat. And so i'd remind facebook. The president biden just wrongly said that day facebook killing people. The administration is not their friend a company with enough market power to alienate and censor. Its customers.

What a marvelous moment for Atlanta and the state of Georgia? What a marvelous moment for the country in the world. Black man is getting a standing ovation in the deep South or breaking a record of an old time baseball idol. And it is a great moment for all of us. And particularly for Henry Aaron. The great Vin Scully on the call for Hank Aaron 715th career home runs, surpassing Babe Ruth's incredible record that stood for nearly 40 years. Max Kellerman on the Max Kellerman show talks about where that moment ranks in sports history. And though Aaron's record has since been eclipsed by Barry Bonds, he and others believe there is on Lee one True home run King. No one I know who follows baseball. Who I grew up with. Considers Barry Bonds the home run champ. Your head can't triple in size at the age of 35 36 that coincides, you know, with with a doubling of your home run Tau at that ratio suddenly nonsense. Hey, Garin is the all time home run champ. And let me explain something when Hank Aaron broke the home run record Major League Baseball Was more important than the NFL and NBA combined. Cared about those other sports compared to baseball. That time the economy of baseball was much bigger. He broke in 74, but he did the bulk of his work in the fifties and sixties. There's never been another moment in the history of American team sports. That was a bigger deal in terms of record breaking. And Hank Aaron's 715th home run. Erin faced racial injustice throughout his life and baseball career, particularly while nearing Babe Ruth's career home run record from ESPN dot com. Off the field. Aaron was an activist for civil rights, having been a victim of racial inequalities. Erin was born in Mobile, Alabama and didn't play an organized high school baseball because on Lee white students had teams During the build up to his passing of routes. Home run mark. Threats were made on his life by people who did not want to see a black man break the record. Erin was shadowed constantly by bodyguards and forced to distance himself from teammates. He kept all those hateful letters, a bitter reminder of the abuse he endured and never forgot. Bart Scott on Barton Han discusses those conditions Aaron had to face is crazy because you think about the African American athlete back at that time. They wanted you to be quiet, humble, which he Woz. Um and they want they wanted you to be good, but not good enough. To the point where you could start erasing your prominent white baseball players like Babe Ruth, who it was probably the most popular that probably He's the most popular baseball player and baseball history, right.

And though Aaron's record has since been eclipsed by Barry Bonds, he and others believe there is on Lee one True home run King. No one I know who follows baseball. Who I grew up with. Considers Barry Bonds the home run champ. Your head can't triple in size at the age of 35 36 that coincides, you know, with with a doubling of your home run Tau at that ratio suddenly nonsense. Garin is the all time home run champ. And let me explain something when Hank Aaron broke the home run record Major League Baseball Was more important than the NFL and NBA combined. Cared about those other sports compared to baseball. That time the economy of baseball was much bigger. He broke in 74, but he did the bulk of his work in the fifties and sixties.

Erin was born in Mobile, Alabama and didn't play an organized high school baseball because on Lee white students had teams During the build up to his passing of routes. Home run mark. Threats were made on his life by people who did not want to see a black man break the record, Erin was shadowed constantly by bodyguards and forced to distance himself from teammates. He kept all those hateful letters, a bitter reminder of the abuse he endured and never forgot. Bart Scott on Barton Han discusses those conditions Aaron had to face. It's crazy because you think about the African American athlete back at that time. They wanted you to be quiet, humble, which he Woz. Um and they want they wanted you to be good, but not good enough. To the point where you could start erasing your prominent white baseball players like Babe Ruth, who it was probably the most popular, not probably.

A Decade of Dzud: Lessons From Mongolia's Deadly Winters
"So for people. Who Don't know I totally know where is Mongolia? Mongolia is in Central Asia right between Russia and China. The landscape to me looks a little bit like a mixture between Montana and Mars if you can picture that delightful so this this time last year before you were short waves reporter. You don't like to think about that time. You went to Mongolia it's true. Why would one go to Mongolian winter all the travel guides discourage discourage it? I might discourage it but I purposely went there then because winter is at the heart of this whole story. So how cold are we talking here. It's super cold. uh-huh freeze your nose. Harris cold I actually had to tape. Hand warmers all over my microphone so it wouldn't freeze. Wow it is cold. Oh I found this piece of tape tape of me complaining about it minus eighteen degrees right now. This is really cool. I could tell me what you say. Cool coach it wasn't acting but some types of winters are so extreme matty that they actually have an official name so in Mongolian. It's called a zoo would that's when a winter tur- is so bad. It kills significant number of livestock in Mongolia or one out of four people make their living hurting. That has huge consequences. I mattie Safai and I'm Emily Kouanga today in the show. We had to Mongolia to learn about the brutal winters known as and how these natural disasters have changed enjoyed countries way of life okay so Mongolia is periodically affected by this extreme weather event. That happens in the winter called. What does this look like? Yeah so tender standard. I wanted to meet someone directly impacted. Divide it this man named Roy Eaton Gacek. He's a father of four super good bad Santa could do prates daughter's hair getting get somebody for school and everything. He was born a herder in eastern Mongolia and in January. Two Thousand Oilman as he tells it woke up at sunrise to check on his animals. Snow had fallen in the night about a foot. They were writing out a bad winter storm and he was really worried about is heard so how he cracked the door of his gear. Those are these circular felt cover tents that herders living and it was eerily quiet outside blindingly finding Lee white from all this snow. What did you see when he opens the door? Do not with this new household off. He's Carcass Saas new. Shut us a dozen of his sheep. Goats had died in the night. Those still alive yet about one hundred animals at the time. We're trying to find grassy but the land was literally locked in by snow. The hotel does ndas and it was really difficult to see this. He Sang. It was horrifying and it happened. Every few days boyens animals would succumb to starvation. Illness exposure and by the end of the winter he essentially lost his entire heard the type of food that came to his doorstep. It's called Saga which Mongolian means white death. While I think a loss at this level I imagine it's not purely financial absolutely I mean this. This isn't the same but there are dairy farmers in my family and you kind of like build relationship with your cows you literally like have them from birth to death so I have imagine it would be devastating like on multiple levels if you just slowly lose them over time right. They're not just economic assets and the loss of those animals is a social loss. It's spiritual loss experts. I spoke to in Mongolia. Described as a slow onset natural disaster different from a rapid rapid onset natural disaster like a hurricane or earthquake. So how many other herders were affected by the white death that year that year the two thousand six it claimed claimed about three and a half million livestock. Wow quite a bit law. It's eleven percent of the national hurt. And when you consider that at the time one out of every two households made their living hurting. It's significant begin. Animals represent wealth. So it would be as if your life savings were too slowly disintegrate. So what did the herders actually do in response Some rebuilt their heard those who could but others who lost everything they left gave up hurting fled the countryside seeking jobs in in urban areas uprooting. Their lives are good hurting Dad Johansen hair braided guy. He was one of those who left. Almost your short could the mother oh well many migrated. He's saying because it was impossible to make a living and it shows in the population and barter that's Mongolia's capital it has has tripled in the past thirty years exploded. Zid is one of the many migration drivers bringing people to the city. And I could see this when I lived there. I was reporting reporting and living in his apartment building and I looked off my balcony window. The hills were just covered in Gares. Those felt covered tents that herders live in. It was a picture. Sure of all of these people who had moved to the city and settled there and the city. Just couldn't contain all the new arrivals or does it still happening as it. On this scale that hits every corner of the country not that common prior to two thousand had happened about once a decade but was weird about two thousand is. It happened the next year and the next year and again again in two thousand ten so by the end of the decade there were forces and twenty one million livestock died in that period it totally overwhelmed Mongolian people that government tens of thousands of families packed up and left. That's that is horrifying of what is going on. Like what is causing US okay. So it's tempting to blame climate change and that is in fact the biggest culprit in this whole affair. Mongolia is indeed a warmer drier. Replace than it was eight years ago. But what I found is that zoot is actually caused by cocktail of other factors like over-grazing and deforestation. Basically quickly anything that destroys. The grassland is bad for animals. You need that grassland lending food it's a goat's buffet table and to not have it sets them up for good because this summer is a time when they fatten up. And if the grass is gone from drought or other things they're even more vulnerable when the winter is bad. Oh little bit of science here yes. The drought okay. Means less grassland and in Mongolia less grassland creates even more drought vicious cycle. Yeah because Mongolia. It's land locked all right. So the vast majority of precipitation rain snow. It comes from the land it comes from the grass. Water is transpired by plants into the atmosphere so so without grass Mongolia is even drier so given all of this is hurting still considered a good way to make a living in Mongolia. I think Mongolians are trying to figure that out. There's fewer herders but they're better prepared and trying to manage the Paschel and more sustainably local communities training herders to brace for a bad winter. Do things like make extra. Hey for their animals to eat. Purchase Livestock Insurance and pool there resources so the individual costs aren't so high all right so that that sounds great but are herders still kind of on edge. Are they like Shariq. Dowd anticipating the next. You know so I used to report in Rural Alaska inefficient community and herders. They kind of remind me of fishermen they know they're at the mercy of the weather but they're very tough and resourceful within their own lives and herders are doing the same. They're trying to make the most of what they have. They're kind of cultural heroes for practicing this way of life. That's become increasingly less common in the state. Broadcaster actually gives these awards to the best herders in in the nation. Please tell me you went to a best herder award ceremony absolutely went to a buzzer award ceremony. The championship herder. Who I met in the province was this man named near Goo Davidoff and I talked to him right after he got his award? Lord of host was also he was practical. Nature is unpredictable. It's harder there's less rain. Animals can't get fat but if we prepare extra hey. We can overcome such natural disasters. We don't have to be afraid this spring their animal's gave birth to hundreds of babies. I went back to visit during the birthing season in March. This pen is just full like a hundred lambs. Just these tiny little cotton balls near to make us feel better about this. Do you mind no. I just don't appreciate being manipulated. I wanted to show you the opposite right so not death life and what it signals for the next generation of herders. Who are continuing to do this? I'm picking up what you're putting down on. Thank you all right. I'm Lequan thank you for bringing us the story.
In Black America
Dr. Aldon D. Morris Discuss History of Sociology Pertaining to Black America
"John Leo Hinton Junior and welcome to another edition up in black miracle on news leaks program Doctor Alden. Moore's professor of Sociology and African American Studies at Northwestern University and president elect of the American Sociological Issue Logical Association in Black America. Many of the early white sociologists were actually quite racist and they preached that that in in many ways that black people were inferior and therefore they deserve to be at the bottom of the society because of their meager talents and intellect. So they did not pay much attention to the horrific Jim Crow period period of slavery. And so on. And so what that means is that the factors like oppression and Discrimination and Terence fourth and not bigger into their now about why black people face so much why they were and why they were at the bottom of society and And and this might be interesting you but the first to sociology books were actually written all race actually written by two I believe they were white. Mississippi and established in one thousand nine hundred. Five small group led by Lester. Ward William Grand something to Franklin Jennings and Albion small at a meeting any of the American Economic Association. The American Sociological Association held his first meeting the following year in Providence Rhode Island the membership in in one thousand nine hundred sixty two at one hundred fifteen for the first several decades the activities of the society or sending on publishing a journal holding an annual annual meeting and performing various administrative functions. Such as record keeping sending out communications and so forth and forty nine the first executive executive officer was appointed on a part time basis and in one thousand nine hundred sixty three. The Association established permanent headquarters in Washington. DC since the organization was founded. There has only been three African American presidents PRYATTA. More selection. Dr Al and Moore's will be the one hundred twelfth president of the American Sociological Association. He was served one year as president-elect and then become president of the Association in August Twenty Twenty he has taught at northwestern university. Since one thousand nine hundred ninety eight I was born and raised and Wyler Mississippi. Then I left and when I was twelve thirteen years old to and moved to Chicago and has lived in Chicago most of my life. I'm currently in in Chicago. Oh went to school and Peoria Illinois then I don't Long Island New York first job with the University of Michigan which has stayed about eight years and then I moved to North Western University. And I've been there ever since came to North Western in nineteen eighty eight idea about your childhood. Oh my childhood well. I was born in Jim Crow Mississippi. And I remember that I was just a boy I was six years old. When Emmett till was lynched He was lynched only about twenty miles. From where we we live. live with my grandparents and it had a tremendous impact on me and my generation. Some of us now refer to it as the Emmett till generation and I I remember going to the Colored School Having to sit on the back of buses Drink from Colored Water Fountains and do be be insulted and all kinds of ways especially my grandparents Were very strong people and I as a boy. I didn't understand why they were being called a boy aunt. And all of this kind of stuff so I experienced Jim Crow Racism in the heart of the South and Rural Mississippi. And then of course we were my mother and her siblings. Almost all of them have been part of the great migration and so they always lived in Chicago. Saint Louis and Milwaukee Detroit other places and so I as a little boy. I thought that The North was really really the promised land that they were really gold streets and milk and honey and all of that and so I also knew that I was going to come to Chicago once my elderly grandparents. It's passed and when they did. I was shocked with a double dose of new racism the the northern version. And so I you know I went to finished elementary school in Chicago. A went to community college and Chicago worked in factories in Chicago and And experienced a great deal love Racism and so on and Chicago of course This was the early seventy they sixties. The civil rights movement was still going on on the black power movement in particular was raging and so Also would assist that. They're the change could happen because I wouldn't have those movements and when I saw on television what was happening in the civil rights movement and all I. I grew up with a lot of hope. I thought we were going to change this thing. I had no idea that we would be where we are here. In the twenty thirty first century now you grew up in Chicago doing the radio station. WBO winds high days and allies Mohammed. And Jesse Jackson Operation Pushing Russian mayor. Daley tell us about that experience. It was a very A very rich rich experience by the time I was in Chicago. UGH Oh well I. I witnessed these a lot of the civil rights movement. The march on Washington and The Birmingham confrontation on television. 'cause I was in Chicago. Oh I was deeply influenced by Martin Luther King Junior and And then of course here in Chicago Jesse Jackson was his protege and so ooh I participated in protests and marches and so on that involved him and many many others Chicago was a very very Rich kind of Environment Like now it has some of the best and the worst tendencies of America and I went to a predominantly Lee White High School Where we were not as like people like students we were not considered to be smart? We were not considered to be college materials and so we weren't prepared appeared to they. They did not teach us to be those things and But yes I mean on on. You could drive down one street and park in front of me. Elijah Muhammad's house and you can go on a little bit east and you'll be at Jesse Jackson's headquarters and and so you know operation breadbasket is getting all of that. I do vaguely remember when Dr King about the Movement to Chicago in nineteen sixty six and there were marches for fair a housing and there was some of the most racist outpouring that the nation has ever seen When in one of those margins Dr King was hit upside the head with a brick and he said Ed that you know? I've been in Birmingham and I've been Montgomery. I've been in Mississippi but I've never seen the kind of racism that I'm experiencing here in Chicago so it was a mixed bag growing up here. I mean on the one hand. It was a vibrant strong rich black community. You know we had ebony and jet and all of the Black businesses the one that we had so many movements going on and and leaders both young and old. I was in community college when Fred Hampton and Mark Clark where fascinated they were black panthers and And that was the first time I saw Jesse Jackson in person. He came to my community college. I'll southeast junior colleges. In the end he spoke to us and And and I was like wow man. This is one of the most powerful individualism was ever heard so I remain active on movements but also You know Had never no one in my immediate family. That never gone to college so I didn't have any plans to go to college and And then the Vietnam war start raging and and I was working in Spiegel's warehouse and And I knew I didn't want to go to Vietnam and I ended up going to a community. Unity College us. Because then you could get for with the ferment. Kept you out of the service for a little while so so I did that and that was. That was the very beginning. Some of my college experience I in fact With somewhat afraid to go to community college because you know Com being a first generation student. I thought that everybody was going to be so much smarter than me. And then I was GonNa say things get laughed at it and all of that but I I went on. There was still more appealing. Attractive to meet and go into Vietnam and so I went. I went to a community college and I started reading. Do Boards and Margaret Walker and David Walker Peel. And all that kind of
