On the current state of scotland. The two thousand sixteen brexit referendum in which scotland voted strongly to remain in the eu. And boris johnson's twenty nine thousand nine hundred. Uk general election confirmed growing divide between how scotland and england see their respective futures. The scottish national party secured a fourth successive electoral victory in last month's scottish parliamentary elections but the path to independence is still far from straightforward. So where does the snp go from here in pursuit of that objective. We'll come onto that. But rory's piece begins with a comment margaret thatcher made in the nineteen eighties whereas she offered a vision of modernisation. She asserted her. Opponents wanted to turn the uk inter museum society. Rory rights thatcher underestimated the appeal of museum society labor overestimated last him.

Okay last one. The word is the seamount. Is it an animal a plant or a geological feature. Oh i know this. One eats a geological feature.

Why Is the Fed so Boring?

"If we were grading on a curve these extremely boring and wooden speeches given by federal reserve chairs these actually represent shocking level of sharing and openness. This is according to sebastian mallaby author of the man who knew the life and times of alan greenspan if you go back to the early one thousand nine hundred eighty s. The central bankers almost didn't communicate at all with the markets and with the public. They were changing rates. They wouldn't even tell people there. Yeah there was near press conference. There was no announcement behind. close aide. they just did it and then over time bit by bit. The fed began to communicate. More specimens says that it was a major economic crisis that ultimately coached the fed down from it's fortress of secrets namely the housing crisis. Two thousand and eight so at that time banks and markets were collapsing and federal reserve chair. Ben banenky saw that he could speak out and actively reassure markets stabilize them almost immediately by announcing and explaining policies and actions federal reserve was taking. Its super tempting. For central bankers to exercise the awesome power. They have when they do communicate with the market. And there are amendments when the economy is really in the dumps and the need to stimulate it but of course there are two sides to the open communication coin derian case in point the taper tantrum. The tape attention. It happened in two thousand thirteen years. After the worst of the housing crisis was the economy is growing.

"The physical labor was forced upon the girls at the rock mark campus. Just as it was the boys in douglasville caravel. A new campus had to be built. the rest of our day after breakfast we would work from probably eight thirty or nine until eleven thirty. I believe and we did various projects and all of them were very physical. Sometimes we would work on landscaping projects working with heavy wheelbarrows rakes shovels digging holes post hole. Diggers the hardest project. That i remember doing my first summer. We were building a campsite at the top of a very high ridge. We were hauling two by fours and a frames and shingles and bags of mortar and cement so at age fifteen they would have us bend over and they would put a bag of mortar on our back which weighed forty six pounds or a bag of cement on our back which weighed ninety four pounds and we were to hold and carry that bad of mortar or cement bent over up a mountain in order to make the footings for the cabins. The girls in my particular group were fourteen and fifteen years old. Maybe succeed years old. And i can't imagine how hard it must have been for the girls that were twelve and thirteen and this was the middle of the summer in a terrible heat wave and even though we were in the mountains it was very very hot temperatures well into the nineties sometimes up to a hundred girls were getting heat exhaustion and heatstroke and they would discourage us from sitting down and taking a break and drinking water. They would give us very very short breaks. We were not allowed to sit down and start working.

I felt stuck in that pain and it didn't seem like anything could uplift to me. The things i was normally interested in no longer brought me joy. This experience really rocked my world. It was as if one day i woke up and my whole world looked different so this event was really challenging for me and i was worried that i would just never feel like my life was back to normal for me.

"Home after about three hours finally on september twenty. Fifth nineteen fifty. Seven woodrow man. Who is the mayor of little rock at the time is in howard to send federal troops to enforce integration and protect students. Wait the same doofus. The orval who had earlier no now orval was the governor and this is the mayor of literal. Okay okay sorry. It's okay so finally. On september twenty fifth with a man asked president eisenhower to send federal troops to enforce integration and protect the little rock. Nine i should be more specific. When i say protect students meant protect the african american students that were just trying to get an education shock. Wow why would you do such a thing at a high school. How dare you in response. The president ordered the hundred and first airborne division from fort campbell kentucky to little rock and federalized the entire ten thousand member. Arkansas national guard finally taking it out a famous control. Yes so he sent. I don't remember how many people of the airborne division he sent. But basically i think it was twelve hundred and federalized the entire arkansas national guard so that famous no longer had control over them in any situation let alone this particular situation. All this makes me so happy guarded. By the soldiers of the hundred and first airborne the little rock nine were finally able to begin. Regular classes at central high numerous legal challenges to integration continued throughout the year and fabius repeatedly expressed his wish that the little rock nine be removed from central high. Famous can eat a dick. He could do a lot of things that i'm not gonna put in public forum but yes we'll go with either dick even though some people enjoy that so that shouldn't be a punishment. I mean same. But although several of the black students recall having pretty positive experiences during their first few days of school the ordeal was far from over each day. The nine teams were harassed threatened by most of the other students teachers and faculty of the school and at one point white students burnt the word. said go home in the lot across from the school for instance melba petillo was kicked beaten and had acid thrown in her face. Gloria ray was pushed down a flight of stairs and the little rock nine were banned from participating in any extra curricular activities many gene brown which i love that name..

"The nine continued to face physical and verbal attacks from white students fruit out their studies at central high. They were spat upon punched. Kate hit with eggs and verbally abused. One of the students. Jim Brown fullback was expelled. The remaining eight students however attended the school for the rest of the academic year and at the end of the air in nineteen fifty eight and screen became the first African American to graduate from Little Rock Central High School. I should really end the story right there. But there's a painful twist governor favors defeat in his attempts to enforce segregation directly. Found another way to keep blacks away from public funds rather than repeat integration for another year. He simply shut down all the schools. Many school districts in the South followed lyrics example Eva closing schools or implementing quote unquote school choice programs that subsidize white students attendance at private segregated academies not covered by the Supreme Court's Decision Little Rock Central. High School did not reopen with a desegregate each student body until nine thousand nine hundred sixty an efforts to integrate schools. Another public areas throughout the country continued for out the sixties saw. I mean this was more than sixty two years ago. Ancient history right. I said there was a twist. And the report from T- files an sixteen showed that school districts that predominantly serve black and Brown students receive twenty three billion dollars less in funding the no serving mostly white school districts and that's despite serving the same number of students the legacy of separate but equal still exists to this day.

The nine attempted to return to temper twenty third entering the school through a side door when they were eventually discovered. The protesters became so violent. They attacked everybody black as well as reporters covering the story and so again the students returned home.

I was going to bring up one other point. Because I, you know, something about about law enforcement really interested in may. So I went on a rod along here in Little Rock with the police officer, and I wrote along with them for about four hours. And I thought it'd be really interested in because you know, I have a passion for helping others and helping the community and I thought that'd be something right up. My ali. So I wrote a long with this altar for about four hours. And that's something that I really really did.

I just gave you we started the process now again, we looked at didn't necessarily. You know, point me toured you being a police officer.

That was really interesting, right. But then you know, what I would do after that. I'd go. Now, let's look back who I really am deeply passionate about law enforcement. Right because there are a million ways to help people. Dominic a million ways. And I just gotta tell you. I feel like I heard your soul come alive when you started talking about giving advice to your friends. I heard it. And I sense that a smile broke over your face as well. And I I gotta say here don't get tempted by something that's cool because three years from now, you might be calling me going. Yeah. I thought I wanted to be a police officer. But I'm burned out. And can I need your help? Again. That's my concern. This exercise wing walk through talent, passion what I do best. What I love to do most. They are windows into our soul. It is indisputable.

And the president of the United States had sent our US military to ensure that right. Despite that feeling of triumph, the students would still need armed escorts for the rest of the school year. As Eisenhower scale back the military presence, the nine students face constant harassment and violence inside of central halls.

"Rene is in Little Rock, Arkansas. Rene you're on the Larry elder show. Thank you so much for calling. Thank you Larry for having the I've never called in. But when I got in my car and turned on your show, and you were talking about Chuck Schumer, and basically it's passed. Indiscretions if you will and how she basically is judging or trying to judge Brett Cavanaugh. And here's what it comes down to to me. Larry, I'm an African American woman in forty three. I'm not a Republican. But I'm no longer a democrat. And I haven't been for a long time. For this very reason that you just pointed out the bottom line. Oh. There's your top on both sides, certainly character. Either organization. Like. None of these folks cared. It's not worth defending either. What we should be demanding is that our representatives no longer represent financial interests that they represent real evil, and if they have character. So for instance, in your church to change over time, of course, you can evolve. But you really have character you wouldn't lie about where you've been. Well, Renee, I certainly agree with you this hypocrisy on both sides. No question about it. But I don't believe that a pox on both their houses the Democratic Party pushes this phony narrative Rene that race in the remains the fundamental problem in America. They pushed the narrative that sexy remains a major problem in America that is simply not true. And you're telling people that they're victims, especially black people because the Democrats need that ninety five percent close to monolithic black vote without which they cannot win at the presidential level. So I don't believe the parties are equally at fault. I agree with they're hypocrites on both sides. But to say that the both parties are are just as bad. No way. No way a mini. Okay. Let me say one thing. Okay. I I'm originally from Michigan. I'm living in Little Rock Arkansas my family's from the east side of the state. And let me tell you, something racism and sexism are so alive in in your face here in a way like it. It really feels like I'm not even the United States here in Arkansas. Here's what I'm going to say having lived in thirteen thirty five of the fifty for me as a professional African American woman raises, an sexism really loud and in your faith in certain parts of this country. And he happened to be living in one of those days. Well. What were they also lived in Michigan? And I had a great time in Michigan. I feel I feel oppressed at all. And I lived there some years ago, and I would imagine that there's less oppressive now oppression now than there was in the seventies. When I lived there, look, here's my here's my thing. Renee, here's my thing. In order to succeed. You gotta do three things. Finish highschool. Don't have a kid before you're twenty and get married before you have that kid. What is racism or sexism doing to prevent somebody from following that formula? Okay. Let me tell you seriously. Larry, I'm serious. I am serious. I am serious. I am serious. You come down to Arkansas. And this is happening. Definitely not only to African Americans. But white, okay. Tell tell me specifically what what do you mean? Rene excuse me. What do you mean by this is happening specifically, what is happening to black people in Arkansas? I just went to Arkansas gave a speech there. I came in came out. No, no cross. No in my hotel room. Pardon me. They don't have opportunities here. They don't have hope. It's a it's a poor state now because now because it's a poor state is one of the it's one of the poorest states in the union. Poverty is a problem. But to make it seem as if it's because of race. That's my issue. It's a poor state. Okay. Okay. Okay. I car that is the poverty is not merely because of ways and do the like sexism and classism probably the real the bigger issues we have in this country classism, and sexism racism is there. It's real. But you're right. It is not the driving force of poverty, and they're they're way more, and I'm sure this way more poor white people in Arkansas than there are poor black people. This is this is way more poor white people in this country than there are poor black people in the country. Where are you from originally? I'm originally from Detroit. And and and I assume you went to high school went to college did. Well, all the all the all the things that I'm sure you're telling your children to do. Yes. So why didn't why didn't the racism and sexism hold you back? Well, let me say well, okay. They did not hold me back because I was a natural born fighter, but that's not everybody. Larry was should we should we be encouraging everybody to be natural born fighters as opposed to saying, oh or how racist America is? Well, we should be encouraging everyone to discover their true character apps after absolutely absolutely. We should be telling everybody to invest in themselves. Your job is to do to good Goodhart hours of homework until you graduate from high school finish highschool. Don't have a kid before your twenty get married. I you will not before.
