"With all due respect. Governor. How about we start with a system that doesn't begin with mega donors to your election campaigns being named as regents how about we start with what looks is though it's fraudulent schemes quid pro quo arrangements or impropriety. How about we start there? We've already walked through this in Lubbock and in seen it firsthand the appearance thereof. I'm not going to cast the gavel down on anybody. But how about the whole thing's rotten from the top to the bottom governor about we begin there. And how about you don't ridicule and ostracize publicly good faith citizens who come forward in say. Yeah, it's pay to play on Texas. Border region. So if it's if it's pay the play with the region's, why wouldn't it be paid to play on down the line? And then it's just the way I see it from the high plains of west, Texas. But there is a much larger problem. I would I would love to see the letters that were almost sent back to the governor. That say is much as what I've said here. And the whole thing stinks in the hole. Appointment process in Texas needs to change and not just regions. But with board members of every kind you got to be wealthy. You gotta be rich or he got to be retired in order to do anything in the state. And you know, I'll say that as much for the Lubbock city council. But I don't even want to delve into that this has to be a government that works for all people. And right now, simply is not and governor abbots letter though on some levels commendable is also on many levels laughable because it starts at the top. And it goes from there Steve pair is gonna be calling in momentarily in. We're going to talk about the vet school that the governor says that he is forced St Pierre is on the line. Now when the jump out to him executive editor of Amrullah matter Steve Kerr, how are you? I'm great. How are you? Busy day up in the panhandle. It has been really busy. But it's been a good one. And it looks like it's gonna rain. All this end rain is put will anybody die in a rain event. That's the question. I hope not I hope not is it just going to be rain. Or is it going to be fifty mile an hour winds that come with it? I, you know, I'm meteorologist. But I think it's just rain right now. It's fun. You can be a meteorologist on the radio. I'm on the columnists. I'm a political consultant, I'm a mall sorts of things on the radio, Steve. So you guys this morning with Amrullah matters. First of all tell us what Amrullah matters is. And then tell us what you've rolled out for support of the Texas proposed Texas Tech veterinarian school. Yeah. Emerald matter..

"Hours from where we broadcast live here. Thursday at five fifteen pm couple of things to riff on here. As I look through all this. I don't think that benefit is wrong. I think that she is right in that in imitation means to ask someone or something for help. That's intrinsically what an invocation is to beseech or invoke someone or something for assistance or thority. But. An atheist which means a non theorist someone who doesn't believe in something higher than they must be praying for ideals or principles or whatever the case might be. I know a lot of people who treat treat the constitution. As though were God that they're praying to thing or something not someone, and you know, listen, I'm pretty devout guy. I've got my shingle on the wall. I'm. I've done my theology degree in its Wesleyan, by the way. Methodists Wesleyan, but more Wesleyan Methodist, I don't wanna get into the weeds there. But I sat through a lot of public prayers in gotta tell you. I mean, just being honest with you raven on with you. I hear a lot of public prayers and lots of times, I'm holding my hand my head and my hands in ring among thumbs. Because once you get into public prayers, you get into the weeds of the Olivetti, and is as a Wesleyan as somebody who's trinitaria n- if we're gonna do prayers in this country. You know, I don't believe that the country was founded as a Christian nation. I think it was founded by people who had here to Christian principles, but Yay. Get in the public prayers. I think that there's a reason why we stopped doing it. Because I've heard a lot of good Baptist kids give a prayer before the football game. But, you know, also heard in those Baptists kids prayers is a lot of adoption ISM subordination ISM monarchism. And if you don't know what any of those 'isms are just go Google them. For me. The belief is. That you've got three persons of one substance in that's trinitaria, Missouri. That's the nice seeing creed. Those are the classical creeds, but you can hear a lot of prayers in here that Jesus the son of God is something other than the father of God in that creates a problem in. So I was talking to a the earlier who said no is there a law that says you can't have more than two invocations like maybe we can back up the atheists here in have our own invocation. I don't think that there is a log ins that. But how many people do you want giving invocations at a public meeting where all you want to get done is just the agenda that to me is the issue is. Well, okay. So you're going to have atheist prey than the Mormons prey, then the Jehovah's Witness pray, and then a Catholic pray and then the Baptist. Pray just to make sure that you get it all covered over. I don't blame the love, and I don't understand the voter cycles. And this is something that Ross. Ramsey our friend from the texts Tarim talks about I don't understand why there's not a bigger uproar about this. But the same time I'm glad there's not an uproar about this. Because nobody wants to go to a city council meeting and listen through thirty minutes of invocations. I don't for atheists. This is what I will say this the old far side cartoon to fleas. Standing somewhere one standing up against the follicle a hair follicle that looks like a big palm tree trunk coming out of the body of something. In one flea looks at the other fleeing and says, so he really believe there's a a dog in. That's what I think I think it takes a lot of faith to be an atheist, and whatever they might say, whatever they might invoke. I'm sure that they're going to invoke principles in for us to have the the better graces of one another. I'm sure that's the route that they're going to go but new day in Lubbock county in the city of Lubbock that eighty eight Theus get the invocation to invoke something or someone for assistance or authority look forward to hearing what they have to say, they're at the Lubbock city council..

"It's going to be a conversation Thursday, John Gibson, who is chairman of the Lubbock county Democratic Party gonna be joining us. What's the way forward? A lot of folks who are interested in listening to that is in John Gibson in studio. Get him just a moment. But here's one where we when the kickoff today, the atheists in the city of Lubbock gonna give the invocation. On Thursday night at the Lubbock city council meeting. This from Casey be d Lubbock read some stories. I like kacie b slant the best because it sets me up to hit some T-ball home runs here on the program. Dateline Lubbock, the Lubbock city council agenda Garner's some attention at times. But this week. It's not for what's on the agenda tool. Be speaking during the usual time of prayer known as the invocation. It was announced last fall at a local atheist group would be given would be giving the invocation sometime in January of this year. And now is set in stone that members of the atheist community of Lubbock that's an official group. I've not looked up on Facebook. But it's the atheist community. A Lubbock will be speaking before the city council. Members this Thursday. He'll be led by their communications in public relations director, Tracy benefit. Now, let me go out on a on a branch here in say, I bet she doesn't get paid very much as I say about liberals in the city Lubbock the chairman in studio may disagree with me more aborigines in Lubbock than there are real liberals. And I would think even the less atheists in Lubbock, but Tracy benefit to do the invocation. Quote. We know there's a lot of people in our group who have lost everything when they come out as atheists. So we want to de stigmatize what it means to be atheists said benefit benefits said she will use the time to invoke ideas, invoke invocation. Invoke ideas. Quote, we are most mostly going to be talking about how we need to come together. As a city, we are the friendliest city in America eight that's what's on the billboards can't descru- Benfield there. We need to think about every minority in Lubbock in thinking about how we can work together. So. So every minority is being carried under the banner of the atheists getting the I don't know what how minorities I'm sure if I reached out to a few of them. They would have a problem with being represented by the eighth easiest, but that's what benefits says we need to be thinking about every minority in Lubbock and thinking about how we can work together. The option of having an atheist give the invocation was announced back in the fall. This has had mixed reaction. Now, listen, it was announced back in the fall that the option would be open. I think. In call me whenever you may. But I think the con- the constitution of these United States gives that option I think that that was announced like way back in the eighteenth century that that option would be open quote. It doesn't really stick within the definition of an indication because it is calling to someone else. If you don't believe there is someone else than you're speaking into the air said Jeff MC Reich, pastor of wrought city church. Jeff mcbride. Following local politics as I do fancies himself on being a political thorny on all things. God centered MC right saying that they're just going to speak into mid air. But I don't know how wrong he is there than I wanna read the rest of this. And we'll break it down benefit explained that an invocation doesn't always mean. Prayer quote. Most people are familiar with a prayer being an invocation, but in invocation doesn't mean prayer those words aren't synonymous an invocation simply means to ask someone or something for help mayor Dan pope emits, it was even a little confusing for him. Quote, first question was I really don't understand who atheists pray to but the more I looked into it. My intuition is that constitution protected their rights in the end. He hopes the community finds a way to accept it quote. I think part of west Texas of part of the west Texas value system is that we are not judgmental. We take care of our neighbor. And we love our neighbor, whatever they may believe they Theus community of Lubbock will give the invocation coming up on Thursday, forty eight.

"And I'm not quite sure how I went from HEB two stripes to journal other than this is a Friday episode of the program, and I'm just whirling on riffing on raven on. But look, it's not it's not sour grapes. The Lubbock avalanche journal. I thought I was going to run for office pulled back because I thought I could build this platform. And that's fine. They said look you got to get a hold off on you. Because we don't know what's going on. This was in late two thousand seventeen and then they were bought out and things didn't they wanna make a right? And I said, okay. So how much you're gonna pay me? They sit zero that. I was just essentially going to be contributor in in guys. Listen, I can write for a lot of different publications. Statewide publications in. I'm not I'm not being braggadocious here. But that can and you'll see that in the next week or two, but I just don't have time to ride all the time. Good journalism is not free in its it's hard for me to find time to sit down and write on the things that need to be written on. But and that's why you get all the syndications that you do in Lubbock avalanche journal in the column. So you don't you don't see a lot of local stuff every once in a while they're not being editorial. But you don't get local content. You don't get what you hear on this program. And I'm not gonna write that stuff for free. So it's not sour grapes. I got plenty opportunities outside the Lubbock avalanche, Cheryl. But I do think that that is something worth watching what happens with Lubbock avalanche journal, and how much further it goes to be to be playing with you in the same four stripes, which I can't say without gritting my teeth. And I think that there's a reason why HEB is having it's time come do again up to four locations in Lubbock within the next eighteen months love, how my voice cracks. They're like, I'm thirteen years old. I'm a grown, man. I'm almost forty. Speaking of progress ransom progress coming up our friends, Steve mass and gale and Jeff Griffith. Both city councilman on the Lubbock city council gonna jump in with us here. We will we will ask them HEB questions. Weekly expecting a common. And hit him with that. Z running here about ninety seconds now on your other side..
