Breaking Down the Marxist Ideology of Climate Change

"Says the main sources for climate crisis are the political and economic systems. Capitalism. Constitutionalism, commercializing and re if eyeing, nature and life, less impoverishing spirituality and imposing consumerism and developmental is, um That generate unequal regimes and exploitation of resources. It's a mouth full of stupidity. The global crisis that's exasperated by unsustainable practices of exploitation and consumption. By the developed countries and the elites of the developing countries. See China loves these useful lead idiots. It does their work for them. Like Ed Markey of Massachusetts. If China could they give them? You know, A, uh Medal of Communism Award in Beijing. He's such a putt. We demand the leaders in the North, not continue Such wicked practices. That destroy the planet and demand. The leaders in the South not followed the development models in place in the North, which lead to the civilizing crisis. We urge them to construct an alternative path to achieve fair, egalitarian and sustainable societies and fair economies. Uh, a k a Marxist. For such purposes. It is required that the developed countries meet their moral and legal obligations, especially vis a vis vulnerable and marginalized countries and communities by lifting barriers such as intellectual property rights. Which prevent the attainment. The preservation of life of the planet and the salvation of human species. That's amazing intellectual property rights. So where does the order these intellectual Inventions and products come from Mr Producer. Capitalism. It's not fair that we don't share them. So we have to destroy capitalism and yet make its bounty available to The rest of the world.

Finishing up three and a half percent to six hundred eighty dollars ninety nine cents comparatively. The nasdaq was down nine. Tenths of a percent most of that drop happening in the last hour. Two hours of trading after the fed minutes came out so the minutes from the federal reserve's meeting today indicating that they are considering tapering off their monthly asset purchases sometime in the near term but obviously those things can and often do change so the market reacting to that towards the end of trading and tesla got pulled down a bit as well so pretty strong day for automakers just across the board today so we ejected on this yesterday but will check in again today probably for the last time this week but weekday performance so far tussles down about four percent a little bit less than four percent so far and actually now doing about a half a percent to full percentage point better than gm. Ford's atlanta's volkswagen and neo so despite all the coverage of the knits investigation. If you'd just slept through the first few days of the week which is actually not a bad strategy for an investor and you just looked at automaker performances we to date. You'd have no idea that there was investigation on tesla. And you'd probably say oh tesla's having a pretty good week relative to others so markets down today tesla up and that was despite reports that two. Us senators are currently urging the federal trade commission to open a probe into whether or not tesla used deceptive marketing practices involving drivers systems features which tesla of course calls autopilots and full. Self-driving that is per the wall street journal. They write quote in a letter to the head of the fdic. We con dated wednesday senators. Richard blumenthal of connecticut and ed markey of massachusetts said they have serious concerns about how tesla advertises. Its advanced driver assistance features. Which don't enable vehicles to operate autonomously. They took aim chief executive elon. Musk for some of his comments and quote.

"The most popular part of the democratic bill is taxing billionaires and wealthy corporations to pay for programs for people that is the single highest polling number even though so many of the other programs poll out very high as well. The child tax credit free community college but at the top of the list is where the revenue's going to come from under the democratic program. And yet we can be flexible. Germs of how you know within that larger revenue raising of goal That we could be but we have to be firm in terms of our goal to fund these big programs so so yesterday we had former massachusetts governor michael dukakis on talking about the packages. I asked him about whether he'd support waiting for the larger spending package before passing the one point two trillion dollars smaller package. Here's part of what he said. I don't think we have an option here. I don't think we've got Any alternative we've got gotta move on this. This is a very very important step forward. Can we get the broader package. Yes i think we probably can. But it's going to be tougher but in the meantime I think it would be a mistake to essentially sacrifice what has been a very impressive. Bipartisan effort at the end of the day. If it's necessary will you just get the one point two trillion done and come back to fight another day. Well you know. obviously mike. Dukakis was a generational leader floor democrats including for me. And i and i think that he's right That we need the bipartisan bill. Such the roads bridges the broadband. You know But at the same time. We're at an fdr moment. We need bold action and we can get it done. We can get it done. I mean that's what the election of twenty twenty was all about. It was a mandate especially from young people by the way who voted overwhelmingly high numbers For this democratic agenda and and again we were able to come together in the senate yesterday morning at five. am to pass it out and in of all democrats voted for it. Now job is to do the same thing over in the hillside to work with democrats and to the extent to which the moderate democrats in the house want the first bill and all the things that are in it. That's additional leverage for us in negotiation on the larger bill and to To give up that leverage i think would give up our opportunity to bring them all on board to have all the democrats voting for it and maybe there will be some republicans in the house as well. That would vote for the bill. But i doubt it so I just think that all these crises are coming together We're at a point where it's like the great depression and the nineteen eighteen playing democ with that flew. In the civil rights movement of the nineteen sixties have all come together and these two bills the totality of the response to it a generation response. And i think we can get that has massachusetts senator. Ed markey senator. Thanks so much for giving us your time. No glad to be with you..

"I mean that is a that is a decided strategy and some would say that it places potentially the bipartisan. Bill at risk Well again that that in a way a paradox for the republicans say have to understand that to the extent to which the bill that they agree with Can't pass Both chambers of both bills have to be able to pass procedurally It actually puts the onus on the democrats to get the fifty votes Ultimately to send it off of which we did and then it puts the onus on the democrats in the house to work together in order to get the votes to pass out. the bipartisan bill and the And the green In family budget resolution as well so I think we're going to get it done. I have every confidence that nancy pelosi and the progressive caucus can work together in order to get the votes for both of those bills. And then Send it back to us and we would then send it to president biden for his signature but ultimately no climate no deal that is if if if the green budget resolution gets watered down Then that's gonna cause big problems and so let's talk about that okay. Sure so you've got. There are climate measures in the smaller. One point two trillion dollar bill that has been passed on a bipartisan basis. In the senate. I wanna take these two things separately. Is there enough. If that is the only thing that gets passed. I understand their procedural dealings going on. Is there enough in that bill to satisfy you because if not then then i. I'm assuming that means you need to see the whole four point seven trillion as one bundle in order to be behind it yourself when it comes back to the senate well i would say this that Yes there's money in the bipartisan bill. For a power grid you know sixty five billion dollars. I mean right now. Out of thomas. Album edison would recognize our electric ribs. So it has to be up on nice for wind and solar in has to be modernized for energy efficiency. A managing the electricity coming in off the ocean or off of offer the desert so people's ruse that has happened and is some money in electric charging station. Some money in for electric school buses and i would say all of that is a good stock. It's a good start but the big big investments are in The reconciliation bill That's the three point five trillion dollar bill and we received a wanting from the un this week that the planet and all of humanity is on a code red alert and the only way we're going to respond to it is with the green budget resolution. So they're tied together. We know that the planet is dangerously warming. We know around no emergency rooms planets. We know we have to put the preventative measures in place in. Dow's all in the big deal. The tax sites win sola. Okay so as i say. Connect those dots for so. We covered the the un report earlier. This week here on radio. Boston tried to take a good local focus on it in that three point five trillion dollars. There's more than climate. There are a number of other things as well. But what are some of the specific policy measures that you want to see in the final plan for how that three point. Five trillion would get spent that matter to massachusetts and matter to that un report. Okay well the the un has now given us. Our final warning in that report says that our responsibility is unequivocal and the effects of the climate crisis are unprecedented and we have an undeniable call to act and so inside of the big democrat..

"This is radio boston. I'm john during a lot going on in the nation's capital this week yesterday the senate passed a roughly three point five trillion dollar spending. Plan that on the of passing a one point. Two trillion. Dollar bipartisan infrastructure. Plan on tuesday. And it's still not a done deal not even close right now. The larger spending package is just a big number list of priorities and lawmakers now have to get to work on the long process of actually drafting the legislation that would determine how the money gets spent. Meanwhile the house isn't ready to vote on the smaller. Bipartisan transportation infrastructure bill. That's the one point two trillion dollar one progressives in the party wanna flesh out the bigger package i and it could be hard to keep all the coalition's in place through all of that show four point seven trillion dollars. Total hang in the political balance. Will it make it across the finish line. We checked in with massachusetts. Senator markey ed markey. Just last hour to see if he could help shed some light on all of this and i started. By noting to big packages totaling. Several trillion dollars passed in the senate. That's a lot in one week. It was awad lot but it didn't just happen overnight like many things if it built actually from last year on the infrastructure bill where trump kept having infrastructure week after infrastructure week and i serve on the transportation and infrastructure committee so we had finished a big of the bipartisan bill. Last year we brought it forward And we were able to bring in some republicans who said that they would defy. The trump tweets In work on a bipartisan bill. And the big news from massachusetts is we have four billion dollars for highways in the bipartisan. Bill we have a billion dollars for bridges to be repaired. We have two point five billion for the nba and other transit We have Money for electric vehicles We'll have hundreds of millions of dollars for broadband deployment inside a massachusetts inside of that legislation And there's also money for electric vehicles is money for electric buses in there from massachusetts. And that's before we reach the three point. Five trillion dollars of bill That's going to be all democratic senator. Let's start with the eight billion that comes out of the smaller. Bipartisan one. Point two billion dollar kinds of kind of roads and bridges package. How do you get that one over the finish line especially given that there is argument within the democratic party on whether or not the three point five trillion dollar larger spending package needs to get legislated. I well we're going to be sending both of these bills over. And it's a combined four point seven trillion dollars one point. Two trillion in the bipartisan bill. Three point five trillion in the democrat. Only bill and what nancy pelosi has made very clear. Is that neither. Bill will move until both bills move over there and she has the control over that process. So she's not sending them back to us until until both of those bills have the votes to To get a majority and then you agree with that strategy senator..

Is Tutu Atwell Too Small to Succeed in the NFL? - burst 10

"Okay. This next receiver is a guy that you and i are. differ a lot on and with twenty fifth pick of the second round. The la rams selected to at well from louisville. Receive our end. I get their concerns. Ideal disguise five nine hundred fifty five hundred sixty pounds. People are questioning whether he's gonna be physical enough in the nfl. however this is a player. The i compare to markey's brown. I think that in order to be successful. He's going to have to gain a little bit more weight. But i think that to out will be able to develop especially with the la rams who don't need in the -sarily to be great outta the gecko. But i think that the upside for two atwal is especially there especially if he's going to have the matthew stafford throwing the ball and so it was back to murky brown when he was in college him and he had similar stats. Which is why. I'm bringing up the comparison the first place in his junior. He had seventy five receptions for one thousand three hundred eighteen yards in ten touchdowns. Now let me bring up to two atwal stats from his sophomore season. And they were very similar which end so to atwell in his sophomore year he had sixty nine sevens for one thousand two hundred seventy two yards and eleven receiving touchdowns and so these two guys. Besides the fact marquees brown ways a little bit more to travel or comparable. And if you're an you're seeing now to to out while falling to the fourth maybe even fifth out of your dynasty da and for me. I think that's a little bit ridiculous. Because for a guy that had a similar career to marquees brat and his cod season and similar upset that he should be considered a third round prospect for you and your dynasty rookie draft. And i'd say right now. Marcus brand is probably a second round. Pick but i think he could be worth a second or the round pick and this guy. Who's extremely fast as well. I think he's going to create separations and he's not just the speedster. He's not just the speedster he he gets receptionist as well on anyone who puts up almost thirteen hundred receiving yards in college. Season is a guy that is a good all amount of receiver as well. So don't just think of him as a speedster guy gonna occasionally break open deep here and there so yeah. I'm a big fan of to at wall of the i know Oh and one one last thing. He was picked in the second round so clearly. The rams do have a plan for two while. They're not just investing a second round pick in a receiver that they don't see being a great receiver in the long term and this by the way was the rams first pick all draft. If i'm correct so they might have even viewed him as a late first round pick. We don't know. But the fact that they spent their first round pick onto to By having good receivers shows you how much demands believe into Anyways kyle the floor is yours as to why you don't believe in to atwell. Well it says so much that i don't believe in two two at well. It's the fact. That so i am from louisville in. I watched a lot of this kid. He is a very good receiver. I agree with you. He's not just a burner. he is a good polish receiver and a lot of facets of football but my biggest problem is literally is just. This is and the fact that he's completely buried on the depth chart. I don't see any Any possibility of him getting in and becoming a number one receiver on that team like anytime. Soon robert woods. Anne cooper kupp. Both resigned extensions For last year So you already got those positions locked up now. You lose josh rhinos. But they already spent high draft capital on jefferson. Dan jefferson last year. So that position was already and then they spent another was a third or early fourth round. Pick onto harris harris could be used as a tight end. I think a lot of people saying he's going to be a tight end he he. They say he's listed as a tight end but he also weighs about twenty so if anything he's going to be like a a move titan. I don't see him being like inland blocker. But you already have tyler higby as well. You know it's just it's just a really crowded And you also have to sean jackson that they stopped they brought in you know so i. I'm just not sold that there's any opportunity for at least in the first year to now you like you said maybe a if you invest in this guy at the late third fourth round Me personally i'd rather just take dark throws on running backs. At this point you know even a third. The guys are projected to be thirds shrink or shrink. You know a rash of injuries and all of a sudden guys are going to get plight. Be starters and they're going to be valuable. You can train them. You know it would take a stream lee amount of circumstances for for you to for him to get on the plainfield him to productive enough for another team to to trade for him. It's just wide receivers just a position that you know if you don't put up stats people don't really wanna trade for him at all. I mean it's as simple as that you know and i know he has draft capital That's about the only thing. I think he has known. Form at one hundred fifty five pounds. I just don't know if it's worth the headache you know. But then again it only takes one person to trade and if you're only drafting him with the mindset of trading him than you're probably not gonna draft to tell to till In the first place. And if i don't know if it necessarily applies to atwells value the fact that the community hates him. Because there's going to be at least one guy and if you put up the stats. People are going to be willing to trade for him. So i i get that point but at the same time. I don't know if that necessarily applies to At wellness fair. Knock about the onto to at atwill. Because it's not actually something that to two at walt dead. It's more of the perception that people have about two. But it's it's what he didn't do. He didn't gain the weight which i think he will in the way he's still what in nineteen twenty years old. I think he's still

"Major retailers, the report says, are expected to close 10,000 stores this year that is up 14% from the year just ended. But at the same time more than 3300 new stores open last year, and course I predicts another 4000 will open this year. Marketplaces Kimberly Adams has that one. The types of stores that shut down in the pandemic include lots of footwear, clothing and accessory shops. According to course, I research the types of retail that opened discount outlets like Dollar stores. Industries that cater to certain pandemic needs also did all right. I believe the housewares category as all overall in the country has seen tremendous growth from New York to the West Coast. Natasha aim it runs the kitchen supply store Whisk in New York. Her business did better than she expected in 2020. Now as restrictions start to lift. I'm hopeful that people will will keep up their love for cooking and want to spend their money at a store like cars, businesses, small and large, are trying to game out which pandemic changes will be permanent.

President Obama's first term hopes for the country's first national climate plan rested on the Waxman Markey bill a proposed a cap and trade program. Would place the limits on greenhouse gas emissions while creating a market for companies to buy and sell permission to pollute. John McCain and Barack Obama both supported cap in trade, as did many of America's biggest industrial companies. That window of opportunity didn't last. The idea of placing regulation on industry and costs on consumers in a country recovering from recession generated fierce opposition and the bill didn't make it past the House. The so called climate change bill is dead in the water in the Senate Republicans still favored cap in trade because it was market base and essentially created a new commodity to trade. In California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was advancing a cap and trade program that was seen as a possible model for the country. But in 2010, the D party burst onto the scene and took a captain trade. Yes, I call it tax and kill because it's going to tax us to kingdom come and kill jobs.

"J f dot org's I'm Jen white. We're discussing the latest on the now mostly virtual campaign trail with Reid Wilson, national correspondent at the Hill. We're going to head to the Midwest in a moment, but first I want to check in on an important primary here in the East. Massachusetts State primary was yesterday Senator at Markey won against representative Joe Kennedy, making it the first time a Kennedy ever lost in Massachusetts. Why's this race? A big deal? Well, it's It's an interesting development here and unbelievable that a Kennedy has never lost a race in Massachusetts until now, But Ed Markey is a you know, he's been in office for a very long time, and Joe Kennedy challenged him as a way to sort of turn the page to a new generation. But strangely enough, Ed Markey became sort of an icon to the youngest set of activists that generation Z and millennial activists for his work on things like the Green New Deal. He's the Senate author. Of of that bill, and oddly enough, the old guy who has been there forever became the liberal insurgent If you will, in his in a race in which he was the incumbent, you don't see that very often. And it's an interesting example. Now that maybe the allure of Camelot is succumbing to the urgency of climate, a CZ one activist put it on Twitter this morning. And ah, remarkable race, one that in which Marquis was pulling behind until just the last few months, Andi, he came back and won a race that not a lot of people expected him to. Well, let's head over to Michigan, Michigan historically votes Blue, but the state gave Trump a narrow win in 2016 and now two key state in this year's election, So let's check in on Michigan with Zoey Clark. She's the program director at Michigan Radio. One of our across America partner stations. She's also co host of Michigan radios. It's just politics show Rizzo. It's great to have you here. Oh, it's good to be here, Jen. Thanks And we're also here with you. What's the mood like where you live leading up to 2020. You can comment on our Facebook page tweet us at one A or drop us an email at one A W A. M u Not orc. Now, Zoe. There are a lot of eyes on Michigan because of what happened during the last presidential election. Take us back to 2016 and tell us how it played out there. Yeah. I mean, it was shocking for I think both voters as well is the political pundits and the political class is Reed. You know, mentioned the Poles were off quite a bit, in fact that it looks like this was going to be a state that Hillary Clinton I don't want to say would easily win, but they're just the idea of Trump winning Michigan after six presidential cycles of the state going blue I was just sort of unbelievable. And yet it happened now. It was very close, though Jenn 11,000 votes less than 11,000 votes ended up being the margin of error, and I will continue to say that it was less than 2016. Then Michigan voted for Trump. But that Michigan did not vote for Hillary Clinton thie sort of coalition that Barack Obama had put together in a eight and 12 In 16 250,000 voters just in certain areas did not turn out for Hillary Clinton that it turned out for Obama in 12. So what are you hearing from voters on the ground this time around? Are they enthusiastic about either candidate? I would say The enthusiasm is about Trump mostly, but its enthusiasm either to vote for him or to vote against him. Now that's not to say that you know, Biden isn't a popular choice among Democrats or at least some Democrats here in Michigan, but but the folks that I talked to it is pure enthusiasm, either to vote for Trump again, or to vote him out of the office. And we saw that in 18 here in Michigan during the mid Term election. It was interesting Democrats who ran for Ah, election and 18 really didn't run against Trump. In fact, many of them didn't even really talk about the president. But it was very clear that for voters it was sort of about sending a message right to D. C and we saw a Democratic wave here in Michigan in 18. And AH lot of smart folks are predicting that same kind of democratic motivation and enthusiasm will be seen in November. So what are Republicans trying to do to keep the state red? Yeah, It's a great question, And it appears right now that they're sort of taking. You know what President Trump is doing right? This idea of of safety and civil unrest and talking about You know, being unsafe in the suburbs. I was talking to a very, very smart pollster Rich Uba, and I've got to just quote him because he said that he thinks every time that you know Trump is talking about the so called, you know, terrible rioting, inner cities, he said. He quote things of Regina, George and Mean Girls saying, Stop trying to make fetch happen. It's not going to happen. That you know that this is just sort of a one note rallying cry right now, and what he sees is he doesn't think that's gonna work. And so we'll see whether you know Republicans here in Michigan decide to continue to do that. You know, the issue is sure there have been protests in Michigan like there have been, you know, throughout the country over the past months, but you know, we haven't seen what we have in other states and certainly don't think there's a huge fear of Of violence that is, you know, pulsating through our state right now, What is November 3rd looking like for voters at this point in terms of casting their ballot, is there Ah, clear message about how people can cast either by mail or by going to the ballot bags. What are you hearing so far? Oh, you went there. So let's open this Pandora's box of of drama. So in 18, Michigan, voters passed a constitutional amendment saying that we would be able to You have no reason absentee voting. So before that you could only get an absentee ballot. If you were over a certain age or you were going to say, you know, I'm gonna be out of the state in 18, a cz part of sort of the swell of voter turnout. This thiss amendment was passed. And so in August we saw the highest number of absentee ballots and we will likely see the same In November. And it's putting some stress on clerks on city county clerks and ballot counters of the day of because there's some laws still in Michigan that haven't quite caught up to the fact that this many people are likely going to use absentee ballot. And so the frustration among many is this idea that Ballots can be counted until the day of and so there's consume concern that a state like Michigan, which appears to be in play, that really could be, you know a deciding factor in this presidential election, that there's a possibility we may not know if it's close. You know who won Michigan for possibly days? Can you imagine that they were already concerned about sort of What's gonna happen in terms of ballots? Security? Imagine, you know, a state is important as Michigan. You know us going Well, we knew that we need a little You know, we need another day or two. I mean, it's it's pretty fascinating to think about that happening. What's the latest you've seen in polling for Michigan voters? Yeah, I mean, it's it's definitely tracking with what appears sort of nationwide, right? And that is, you know, upper single digits for Biden. But you know, the polls notoriously have been so much squishy. I think that was the word actually learned from Eugen, somewhat squishy. You know, I will say that in 16. You know Hillary Clinton was up 20 points in a poll in the primary, and Bernie Sanders ended up winning the Michigan primary. So I mean, I could tell you what the polls say..

To the high volume of customers coming into the stores this wasn't because there was a high volume of because they're working hotter these work every day they work hard every day serving communities they need to understand.

Because you like can't really of it's it's hard also just kinda sucks in general like a stats are not good. I start with poor gun if anyone was curious about their listening And Yeah it's been Super Fun. I'm really enjoying a lot of things about it. They add like a lot of little quality of life. Changes to like. There's a really annoying thing in POK MON Games when you go to Pokemon Center. You're like mashing through nurse joys text box text boxes end you end up talking to her again going through the whole healing thing again by accident And they made it so that you automatically turn around when you're quarter done healing. You can't do that like just little things like that where they're like it's funny of life touches. Yeah it's Great. It's you can also customize all of the the music in the game like you can use music from later generations like you can change the battle music to be like from generation for whatever an it's like an eight bit version of that that music Oh I also I realized. Recently I didn't know this when I started at that like it's supposed to take place Four years after the events of pokemon crystal which I think is kind of how they explain. Why the map is opened up. Kinda like no. There's like no team rocket plot points what I can tell So like you don't have to worry about those things to get through different parts of the game What's the experience like for you just like you know not not having to worry about those things is how well did you know that game? Is it like totally crazy to be able to do? All these things have orioles that wild. It's like it's almost a little overwhelming because I know the path through pokemon crystal like the back of my hands because I played I played eight or I've played like so silver which is a remake of of generation to So many times that sort of like oh I have so many choices now and also it's it is like more challenging than regular Pokemon Game. Because you can do. The gyms in any order like An and that includes like going back and forth injuring Joan. Canto gyms all you want And as you get more. Jim Badges the gym leaders get harder and also because you can go anywhere you can. There are some areas that have like really strong pokemon and you can just like go there from the beginning of the game like I went to victory road when I only had like a level five. Foregone their like level thirty something things that were killing me So it's it's definitely harder than a regular program game which is which is really. That's also part of the fun of it. I think it's adding a little more challenge than than you're used to poke him on. Koa But yeah I really. I really am enjoying a lot excited to keep playing it. Hannah bend named skin. He cut after my handle the other night it was really awesome and then it was slap in the far feldstein earn burnout. I saw that I did see her. I suggested when I was watching Ben that he should play play. It doesn't does lock run. Which like means a few things that he like there? There are several rules that I won't listen detail because Ben broke everyone of them like within that session. Listen because I didn't want to kill earn Byrne a hug. Yeah I know News Luck Rules. I would have had to release earn. You Watch it on. I was on or is that a different night Hannah. I don't remember seeing him name Have been talking with us. If you've been on it also like the point of news lock is to make. It's like to make the game harder. They explain what does that word mean? What it means means that you the two main like facets of our You have to catch the first Kokomo on that you encounter on every like new area and nicknamed it and if you don't catch that Pokemon then you don't get catch on in that area and if poke Amman faint than they die and you have to release them Bill came up with this or the origins news. Loch Ness Loch. It's customer pokemon loosely for. I guess you'd call it nicely too. I lead I don't know she's eating it and she's eating peanut Butter Cup. I mean I don't know I don't actually know where that came from. I think it came from like someone walking themselves into new sleepers fucking drag. It's unsavory restricting yourself to have no fun for no reason. Well I think if it's not like a it's not like a this particular game I think it makes sense if you WANNA like up the difficulty a little bit if your your time. It's not that I've done it for poker games before it's not. It's not that bad griffin thanking also with news luck runs. Because at least the way I usually do it is because I never want to die. I will spend so much time grinding to make sure I'm over leveled I certainly gains in. And that's just not as fun a lot of the time for people to watch out for me to play So I prefer to have the option to what the fuck wimp keeps flickering for me. Something fell down. Here's the link to for me. Something Solta know about you but for me welcome. I just linked for anybody who hasn't seen it of the two of you. I linked the first episode of Griffin's Griffin Macaroni around that he did a few years ago because it's very good in funny as he might. He did for POKEMON Y. Oh they also I. I didn't even mention. They like added all bunch of new areas to the map in crystal clear which is very cool. Jesus fucking current radiator. Yeah it's popping on let's now if he liked that they also like in the original generation two games. A lot of the areas of Canto were sort of pared down from their original versions and in crystal clear they like updated them all to be a lot either a lot more like the original were added even more stuff to them so cantos also a lot more full of a region. There's so many good things I just like it a lot. I'm yet to watch. Yeah I've been enjoying your strip. What is your but tomorrow? I'll have The the equipment I need to stream from fricken consoles. Yeah what's your plan. That's that kind of leads Mike you what's your plan for streaming once you get your stuff what are you gonna be streaming them going to assert running? Sapphire again speed drumbeat. Drums yeah I also I also thinking about doing random miser because I have a home brewery but I haven't done anything to set that up yet. Did you know reflecting on conversation? The only thing I used homebrew for was getting Ton Package My wildfire also. Sarah texted me. Choose half listening to our conversation and she heard like unlearn Awad file on my also made that show it was like the moment had passed and you guys were just being so matter of fact that like register that same rip back.

This kabq crystal clear Pack finding these things so I heard of it from a random youtube video got suggested to me and then I went to slayer dot com. The guy's website. But if you go there it looks you to a discourse where you can then download it okay. So it's like it's not super direct and you have to like have a you have to download a rom of pokemon crystal and then they have like a little file patch into it. It's very clear directions. GONNA SHOCK SLAYER DOT COM. If you want shock slayer Sleigh and emulator use 'EM GPA. Interested Stolen that's approved for Gameboy advance. Pokemon speed runs.

Base that they want to hear about What did we talk about last week? We talked about streaming a Fantasia N. pedals for armor. I feel like everybody this point. I feel like the PODCAST is way too. Yeah there's this local meet up where people give like. Lightning talks at a bar about the thing that they're like absolutely obsessed with at. I'm like Yo that's so relatable cast in my home about that. I don't have to go to a bar so it's even better. There was a someone I think. I'M GONNA pitch this idea before third mentioned at some point. I don't remember if it was like in person or on. Tv or what but they went to a party wants where they had to prepare powerpoint for the party like everyone prepared a powerpoint about something like something they were interested in that they wanted to share with their friends. They just made a powerpoint about it and then presented it to everybody. Well I guess Oh it sounds fun you know somebody recently was telling me about this lake party they want to that had like three phases to it and they were all like something crazy and I was like I just like have never had a friend like that.

That of course, from the hilarious movie, dodgeball, but it could be our very own US Senator Ed Markey complaining because Senator Mitch McConnell is announced that he's gonna take Markey's green new deal. Bill and bring it up for a vote in the Senate. In other words in Mark is going to get to talk about proposed and then vote on his own green new deal Bill, and guess what? He's mad as heck about it. He tweeted out last night. Don't let Mitch McConnell for you. This is nothing but an attempt to sabotage movement and silence. Your voice, how is letting you talk about your Bill and vote for your Bill silencing. It isn't that the opposite of silencing one silencing being not letting you vote on the Bill boy is he mad and Markey. Says it letting him talk about and vote for his own Bill, which he admits would kill millions of jobs would cost trillions of dollars. Every year would force homeowners like you to spend thousands, upgrading your own home. He says that letting him vote on that is quote, a Republican trick. Hey, I just proposed this stuff. You can't make me vote on it. I'm not saying at Marquis isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer. I'm saying he's a spoon Michael.
