I'm good. Did you get your store back Open the one that was broken, too way had to clean up the mess and replace all the windows. But we opened back up. And what the price of gold and silver right now we are extremely good for you. Good for me because it allows me to work on my rescue and let's talk about that's we are officially a five, a 13 C organization with Max's second Chance Express and Rescue And this is something that you've been doing. Ah, for a while now, but I want to go back to the the original thought you have in your head You shared with me a couple of weeks back of why you started this. Tell me the conversation you had with God. Well, I went I was sick. I was diagnosed with stage four cancer. I am a gentleman who never used a tobacco product in my life. I had a drink in 20 something years. I went to the doctor thinking I had strep throughout. And I had stage four Tillman's well cancer. I spent over 42 days and the ice who I was actually dying about Trish because a cooking it nutrients because of my damage to my tongue. But by that time that I was in there as I tell people you don't You don't you're not sick. As long as I was as bad I was without having a couple conversations with Jesus. But in one of those conversations I thought to myself that you know, I've been pretty plus that business. I'm very blessed with my sham. They have a wonderful family. And the one thing I realized I was slacking was giving back and I made about a God that if I got through this if you help me do it because I only added 20% chance to live. And if you help me get through it. I promised him that I would give it back. But I made do it, You know, help. I was looking for stuff to help the community and what I did was, I went down to chair ST Louis, which is pretty much the same Polis animal control and I started volunteering there walking the dogs taking care of the dogs in the cages and like that. To give back and Bo I swear you God showed me what my true calling is. I've never had anything Make me still is because I do. When I take a stray dog who's been abused. Oh, who's been neglected and show it love and training, and by the time we're finished? They are a pack that that is a would be adopted and have you up in that community. Capture that had problems with the number one problem for rescues his transportation. You know what I mean by that? If you go to southern Missouri, and you go to these dog pounds like popular Bluff and Sykes and Daphne, they have Children that are 65. 70% you said, kill rates. That means that if they can't find a home or getting adopted, they've gotta put it down. Yet. So for a while you've been running Max is second chance Express and rescue and you physically you're personally running around and picking up these dogs to the tune of how many a week so far. Somewhere between 30 and 40. And what I'm doing is taking up these dogs from these actual shelters, and I'm bringing him back to ST Louis to the know Choe Rescue's out in a 60 rescues and samples. I probably deal with 25 to 30 of them, right. I bring them the dogs. That we're going to be Children and southern Missouri. And I bring him up here so they can get him adopted. And they have they have a knack to do that. They have a way to find out people that are looking for dogs. So you're doing that. And now Max is second chance Express and Rescue is legitimate. You're a 513 C organization so people can now financially help you in this progress. Yes, at this moment for the last year. I have been driving my own personal and I'm putting probably $2500 a week on it or something of that sort. And I pay for the gas. I paid for everything. When I'm looking at doing is getting a I would love to be able to get a Yeah, absolutely it up with metal changes, and you know it, then that small bus You know, one of those like they use at the airport? Yeah, the cell boss's yet and I pulled all the sheets out and I put Medicaid jizz. It allows me to do a couple things that way. So what I need is a bus with chicks with those cages, And I could say more because at this point I'm limited Mommy Dog in my Escalade. Dragon, $18. Where can people get ahold of you? At this moment, you can use my email. My personally Amy looks upsetting on my website. I'm setting up my Facebook page. It should be done by this weekend. But at this point, I just have my email, which is M W as in Michael William. Underscored Duke at Yahoo dot Perfect, Okay. MW underscore Duke at yahoo dot com Reach out to Michael Duke.

It was very hard for him to just find his equilibrium in the midst of all of that. Yeah, and to figure out how to play second fiddle and still, I guess, maintain his masculinity or maintain the image of masculinity at that at that time, that's right and still feel of worth in a value. How did you get yourself into into that head space? That sounds like a really intense head space to get into. Well, you got nothing with acting you just Ah, In the simplest terms, we we played from people and we believe it A cz long as you believe more specifically that that you want this woman to win this woman that you're in love with that you want her to when you want her to succeed. And if you live in that space, and then all these other dynamics coming to play her becoming more successful, who are becoming more famous for becoming more well known, and then her ideas are the ones that really work more than your own. And then you you feel less diminished. But if it's rooted in the fact that you bonded and you came together as a team because of the respect and admiration and love for each other. Everything else kind of falls into place. You've been married yourself for 25 years. Did you draw on any of your own experiences in figuring out the power dynamics of a partnership for this role? Uh, yeah, I think you know you draw them everything you've got, because I was sorry. I should be more specific. I guess I'm wondering like you're a famous person, and I'm wondering if there's anything for you not even in terms of like gender roles. But just just just what it is to be a person who is in the limelight and and also trying to make sure that they're there. Partner comes along. With them and shines just as brightly. Wow, you know, Tommy, That's that's really great question. I I do think what What I've learned is that it's important to make. I find everybody around. You feel of value, but you're asking specifically in relationships. But I think that's important, too. You know that your spouse in that marriage or relationship that has a kind of dynamic Where one person maybe more known to the public. And it's more public facing that that person is aware Of how your mate might feel. My my wife doesn't care doesn't look for it, which is great, So it's a part of its part in parts of what I do as a professional is part of my profession. So there's no conflict in that respect, but But there is a sense of you know that it's important that she knows that she is valued in her world and heard her desires and her passions. And I think that's true for any relationship, so I definitely you know. Use that and this character just understanding that

And I would read those things back and forth I just loved them. I remember sitting in bed. Reading that story again but TIKTOK man story and I thought I could probably do something like this and And went downstairs and got on the Family Commodore Amiga. which had at that point had been just used for defender of the crown and there was you know a pre wordpress or not were pressed but a pre word program that we had on there and I sat down and wrote a story and it was a science fiction story it was absolutely horrible. It was something about trying to be. Satirical without even knowing satire was at that point is trying to be funny without really having a sense of irony or I had it but I didn't know how to portray it online on on the page. Yeah. and I. Remember. It took it took me a couple of hours and finished it. brought. To my girlfriend at the time I said, hey read this she looked at it. She read it kind of is like, what are you like you should keep trying? All right. At least you didn't say stop. Yeah Yeah exactly. Yeah. It was very nice her was there someone in your family because I mean getting into English and you're talking about some of the books that you read and then into writing? was there someone in your family that? Product you towards. Your joy for reading. Would you even define it as a joy for reading because absolute our devour books? Yep well, maybe not as fast as some people but yeah, I am constantly reading Yeah my mother she she got me into reading very very early I I. What I finally decoded everything figured it out. I, brought a stack of my. You know my doctor seuss books down to her while she was watching the. Cable Net. So I think and just started reading to her out loud and and from that point on there was always a there's always book around it was something that I could always retreat to I didn't know it at the time but just personality wise I'm fairly introverted doesn't mean that I don't like people just means I need to have some alone time and that's where I would get it. I could go home. I'd read a Stephen King Book Re. Short Stories I. Got Into. A. Clockwork. Orange. And all those dystopia novels and you could use that to kind of relax and recharge by between her and my brother. My brother was the one who also use like, Hey, you should read this your one flew over the CUCKOO's nest. Now here's a coke orange like I said, hey, did you get the new Stephen King? They would just feed me stuff and then you know there's All over the house and so I just had my pick I just walk around and you know. GonNa re I didn't know Stephen King wrote four books. You pick that one up and move on from there and then start developing your own tastes and and move on. I think you might mention of it. What was your first piece of writing that you handed into someone besides your girlfriend for a critique? That was junior year. and we're supposed to write a fictional story I ended up fictionalized event that. You know that we want to up at my mother's Relatives House up in Jersey and that crashed and burned really really. Well, it's. I was I was up against another kid in class meaning we we've been partners. and. He wrote this amazing piece of course and then and he wrote I of course to read his out loud and then I read mine and it was just frigates. Suddenly found in this as well But he you know go ahead go ahead. Well I. got the feedback that that at the time. I needed you know. Every writer when they go into writing for the first time especially that age you don't know what revision means you don't know really what constructive feedback means, and so that's that's what the teacher is trying to say look it's not going to be perfect. The first time this is a rough draft, and so you get the positive stuff in the negative stuff and you go back and Redo it and I I went back and wrote a different story instead because I was embarrassed and I didn't know how to you know handle that particular situation. But I I, I, put it through three or four drafts, and then my teacher was like, yeah, that's what I'm talking about it. That's that's how you do it, and so you learn from those particular situations. How is your your balance of confidence with your writing even though it needed Some revision is standing there in reading in front of your your classmates, the confidence. Could did you have a balanced with that because personally I remember my first year university might first communications class in my knees were shaking and I was scared forty people in the class I looked at my communication Susan. Shut up. Even. Though I had a paper here in front of me. How was your balance with that? Probably. Mighty pen. Yeah, exactly you know naked in front of the class. Yeah well, that's that's exactly I. I. Don't know if if my voice was shaking, my knees were knocking at that point I? Do Remember one of the things I was trying to make sound. Funny. Did Not come off as funny. and there is just silence and it was that the that feeling in the pit of your stomach in front of your, you know this is an advanced English class eleventh grade and. I was like Oh man I blew it. You know from that point on he's going to. And finishes. Waiting for you to be over. And there's been plenty of those moments too. Yeah exactly especially following the other guy who? It was he was I. think he ended up being the Valedictorian and just he just knew what he was doing at an early age You know. There wasn't any ever like any jealousy of my my half. I was just always like man he's so much better. But that takes humility right like just to say no. That guy's talented. Suppose just recognizing it. Yeah. Recognizing I mean acknowledged that wow, that guy's talented I have some ways to go. Yeah and Also. Just being a nice person but also I think. It wasn't a secret how good he was everybody knew that because he was he was killing across all of the subjects and it was just one of those things I have no idea where this guy came from it he's amazing. and I think he had transferred over freshman year so we didn't know. Nobody knew who why non horses exactly. Wow. You're awesome in everybody's Askar you. Just for you just to realize, okay, you gotta work on it a little bit more and then you'll succeed. Yeah that's why people like that exist. It's it's. A It's what gives you drive sometimes I. I gotta hit that level. So after university, what was your? What was your mission? I was a drummer and punk rock bands and we were touring up and down the east coast playing basements in bars and small clubs, and we recorded a whole bunch of albums and that was what we were trying to do. I did that for about three and a half four years? Yeah. Yeah Absolutely yeah. It in me see in. One of the band's had a few in there even though I did not play guitar if I got a base and I kind of plunked around and figure out what the notes were and showed it to the guys who knew better than me and we fashion. A song out of that, I could I could yell scream. Or sorry y'all sing. With some sort of melody in there, some sort of harmony. Another band was I started getting more confident. Now is a fifty percent songwriter with that group. and then you know, 'cause you hop around from band abandoning. You know they last a year or two so that there was another band you know those those I who were punk rock ish or just rock bands then got into like an old country band where I was a one third singing partner in writing partner. After that, I got kind of got tired of of writing and I just WANNA play drums. I played A. Backup not. WanNa sing right now I, just want to play drums. I'm already doing five things at once and adding in their six so. Let. Me just play drums but yeah, it was it was a Lotta Fun. How much will even bringing up the confidence level?

These types of texts have been coming in regularly this off season from the Patriots.

Man You got that. MVP this year. But I still got you there. You got me on rings though. These texts are like their chats on the field. They've joked about their dads. It's becoming friends over the years. Archie and Tom Senior had been breaking down their sons play together. Like two DADS on the sidelines of a Pop Warner Game Peyton and Brady have spent time together away from football as well playing golf meeting for dinners and texting like this regularly they talk quarterbacking and love breaking down the nuances of the game.

Their quarterback. Tom Brady Payton can see Brady across the field right now. Working with his receivers his eyes are stealing. His mechanics are perfect even in warm ups. He's a perfectionist and Peyton respects that as Brady works. Through his warmup routine Payton makes eye contact and they meet at Midfield to chat for a few brief minutes for men so linked as rivals in so intent on bearing each other. There's a surprising comfort level level when they interact not ton of in jokes but an abundance of respect and similar experiences navigating the NFL. Sports media's talking talking heads are salivating over this matchup. It's a dream come true brady versus manning in the prime of their careers with the Super Bowl appearance on the line manning. Manning has earned nearly every award accolade possible in his career today. He's a two time league. Mvp He's been selected to seven pro bowls and has been named first team all pro three times. His numbers are other worldly. He's led the League. In passing twice. Touchdown passes three times and passer Sir rating the previous three years. He's on pace to smash all kinds of NFL records but all of his individual stats. They're starting to feel inconsequential to quench him. Only one thing matters now we have to beat these guys things. Peyton enough is enough. There's a reason he's so driven to win. So far in the rivalry brady and the PATS have dominated Peyton and his colts and pate knows it. He's reminded of every time he sees Z's Brady and thinks about Brady's three Super Bowl rings rings that key peyton up at night and that push him every day during his off season preparation recently Peyton and the colts broke through in their rivalry with the pats winning the last two games they played in New England but as the game kicks off hate knows. Does that to shake the humiliating title of best. QB To never win a super bowl key has to raise his game to even higher heights. This right here here is his best shot to date. Unfortunately Brady isn't letting up he's maniacal about disproving the doubters who say he's just a product product of a winning system he now has three Super Bowl rings and still. Here's people saying that Peyton is the actual better quarterback it drives arrives him Razi that Dr Pays off early in the game. The Patriots are up fourteen three on the other side. Payton is feeling the pressure literally as the Patriots. Defense pairs down on him. Demanding pass is intercepted. It's a Sunday Samuel. Going in untouched as Peyton trots to the sidelines head down and frustrated. He knows that this pick six in a number of ways is symbolic of his career. He dominates the regular season but in the playoffs. He's been prone to these kinds of big mistakes but his rival knows what he's capable of even when he's down. Don't get too excited. Boys Brady says to his teammates on the sidelines. Keep the pressure on eighteen. He's too good Brady. Eighty knows that no matter how many rings e has there's One guy who will always be compared against a guy relentless enough to somehow still pass him by Peyton manning so even with a huge lead Brady knows that if there's one guy who can still beat them it's number eighteen.

"Know how to look at this like i don't have enough context to know if what she's doing makes sense and says a protest or is just kind of weird and maybe she should just testify. Get over with yeah i. I think that this is a much a harder question than folks on either side want to admit so. Let me give the pro chelsea manning side. I the pro chelsea manning side begins. I think the strongest argument is not an argument at all in a legal sense but an argument in fairness fairness sense and it says barack obama commuted her sentence she has been court-martialed her debt to society a <hes> <hes> to whatever extent that it is has has been repaid and it seems not just weird but totally unfair that chelsea manning has been consistently in prison and julian assange isn't right and particularly the first count on on the indictment. <hes> you know carries a maximum five year prison term right that was so until the superseding indictment came out <hes> and after right zubin remember. Let's go back to the time line. Chelsea manning was held in contempt on may sixteenth. The superseding indictment against assange didn't come out until may twenty third right so at the time that the court issued this order chelsea manning was and very likely will serve eighteen months in jail bill and julian assange was only charged with a single count of conspiracy to commit computer intrusion which was going to carry probably probably zero jail time <hes> so that seems wrong right that that we shall see manning's motive is it. It's not like chelsea. Manning is like hey julian. Assange should have gotten worse. I don't know but but if you think about it it it. I think there is kind of even inherent unfairness in if what you want to do is make the best case possible against somebody that you think is guilty of a single criminal offence offence that carries minimal jail time the idea that you would jail collateral witness for way longer seems to at least to me offends my sense of proportionality right. That's kind of point one point. Two is a a and we we discussed this already chelsea. Manning the information to be gained to the grand jury is of appears to be of marginal value at this point and i i do not know what an i. It seems like kiss. She was in prison at the time. I cannot imagine how chelsea elsie manning would know of any relevant information between assange wikileaks and the russian efforts to hack the two thousand sixteen election right that she's not going to have valuable information on that so the only possible information that she could have that would come to bear on any pending grand jury investigation would be processed based stuff right would be maybe she. He knows specific things about how assange back channels his information right. Maybe she knows his habits and practices practices and that's what would be valuable to a grand jury again a lot of speculation here and and i think when you sort of wrap wrap that all up and and by the way that's how chelsea manning had to plead in in in her own motion to quash right her lawyer say the gr- injury defining feature is secrecy and the subject of this investigation has not been publicly disclosed now we have been told that they're interested in inconsistencies in her statements blah blah blah but but even chelsea manning herself and her lawyers do not know why the government wants her testimony and the government doesn't isn't half to tell her so right so there's a level of speculation so that's what you sort of put on the one hand is <hes> this this unfairness <hes>. It seems like it's politically motivated. It seems like gets in we know the superseding indictment was in connection with whistle blowing and and we don't want to go after people who expose the u._s..

"Only after an indictment was obtained council was informed explicitly that the government wishes to inquire into alleged inconsistencies between statements manning made to an informant in two thousand and nine and statements made at her court martial in two thousand thirteen and further that they were interested in enquiring into manning's activities during a certain time period prior to her twenty ten disclosures the matters which could be inquired into should as expected ms manning be called at trial as a witness either by the prosecution or the defense the government's sixties the power of the grand jury subpoenas to prepare for a trial witness and because ms manning has already given exhaustive testimony at her court martial and given the government it has access to thousands of pages of military forensic reports. It doesn't need her testimony. Quash the subpoena. Don't make her testify the court dan. That's sounds convincing to me but i don't and basically said look <hes> grand. Juries are entitled to a broad range range of of evidence. You know whatever the prosecutor wants to bring before them and if the prosecutor thinks that the <hes> reliability of manning's testimony is significant piece of information than they're entitled to that information and we want to hear you're the grand jury is entitled to hear from chelsea manning and she is therefore required to testify and so the specific order again this order order was then oh and i should add by the way the the court after ordering her <hes> to comply with the subpoena then held an oral argument. That transcript is sealed. I can't get access to it but the court's order has been unsealed right so parts of this have been unredacted parts of this have have been released <hes> the documents that are available like i said i'm going to link in the show notes on may sixteenth the court said in open open court it why not an open enclosed court in a in a in a closed courtroom <hes> but before the judge <hes> chelsea manning said that she was going to quote persist in the refusal to comply with this court order to testify and <hes> and the court said okay well. You've you've told us you're not going to comply <hes>. We don't think that you have just cause to to disobey the subpoena we want you to comply and so this court is going to hold you in civil contempt and here's the text of the order and again this will help make it make it make sense <hes> she is remanded to the custody of the attorney general that is to say she is in jail until such time as she purchase herself of contempt right pitches his which means this is before the grand jury old timey stuff like she's a witch or something kind of as well. That's what that so. That's language means to purchase off of contempt to do the thing that will bring you into compliance that makes you no longer in contempt so until she either testifies vice before the grand jury quote or for the life of the grand jury but in no event longer than eighteen months and of quote so again again if and when this grand jury concludes that will also terminate chelsea manning's stay in prison it will not terminate germinate this civil it will it will terminate the civil sanctions <hes> which i'm about to explain <hes> they will stop running but she is also being fined. She is being fined five hundred dollars a day for the first sixty days and two thousand dollars a day for everyday free day thereafter. That's pretty extensive it. I have seen civil contempt sanctions that are that high. I was involved in a case in which a witness who refused to show up for deposition <hes> was was <hes> held in civil contempt and was fined two thousand dollars a day <hes> until he showed up but <hes> but that's gonna start running <hes> it is not clear to me whether that will run retroactively to may sixteenth sixteenth or whether.

"So you sitting out there in the worst possible. Look at this leg position. Jon Gruden like I n not draft is due for number one, pick you bomb right here. See my pray, Derek Carr. Come to me, I know is going down right now, and this is the worst thing if you're a raider fan to see over and over again, Derek Carr, going down for the sec and Frank Clark, Frank tank, your number one that dude of the week, Michigan in the house, Michigan player, former Walker, rain, I, that was also myself, it's now let's move from some dues to some duds, the New York Giants at one in five, the giants had been absolute disaster. So far with auto l. Beckham Julia calling out the team in the media and ally manning looking over by the day. It's gotten so bad that owner, John Mara threw himself into the fray yesterday. Calling out Odell for talking too much and actually come into allies defense. We still believe in you. You know, everybody needs to do their jobs in order for us to be successful and right now, and that's not happening. I know he's the punching bag right now, but a lot of guys need to play better when one, five, it's not just I'm the crazy person that agrees with John. Mara, I'm not jumping off the lab manning bandwagon just yet their offense of line is a problem. The lack of protection is a problem I get. We're John Mars coming from with that blocking up front. Johny United's, Roger, stall back and Peyton Manning couldn't do anything. Well, Lou. Well, Lou. If alarm manage the punching bag than John Moro's punch drunk because the way that he's talking about this team, if I'm sitting there if I'm playing well on his team, if I'm saquon Barkley or anybody else, I'm like, we need names and numbers coach. You need start pointing fingers. We need to hear that from up top owner. But if you're not, it's a smart play. I think he's already saying I'm not going to touch the ally manning conversation ever. Again, he got burned last year when he busy lie manning and the public backlash in criticism made him say he live is our star once again, but I think behind closed doors, the decision of the made allies going to quietly go off into the sunset. But before that I am not touching that Hornets nest and I'm not going to go out there and chastise Eli manning will agree with you, but was the owner sanded not the head coach, everybody speaking on the medics, that for the guy that should be the leader of the team that we heard from on Alexa. That for the fact that he said, we still believe in ELA, a demand or something was told him when he took the job. Like to me, the owner doesn't have a choice, but to say, we believe in Eli, what else can you say, oh, he's a bum. We need to get some, who's he going to get? It's too late in the season. He got to ride that wave in let you make his twenty, whatever million dollars and ride off into the sunset. And I've always been hard on the Manning's, but Peyton Manning, I could never stay when he played, but he was much better than I ever thought. I don't think Eli is is good. As the hype will give him credit for as advertise, right? So I apologize the pain, but Eli is what he what we thought. So ally retires, you apologized to him to, okay, didn't make it. I mean, he's Roggio junior right now. He's the old Roy Jones junior, we are still holding onto nostalgia of him being a two time SuperBowl MVP, but you can't play any more. He hasn't been able to play really over the past three or four years and odeal Beckham junior really saved his career when he was drafted at twenty four team because the spark that offense. But when you really look at him, he's a limited passer. He can't push the ball down the field. They can't really open up the office because the things that is playmakers around him do will he can't do. And when you look at him, he's scared to death for the pike. Whenever it gets close, he falls. I know his brother paid manning, they did..
