"Coming out and speaking out against critical race theory, But let me give you a couple more. These campaigns against war and fascism and today their campaigns against racism. That's the new thing that they want to hold onto. They're used as a cover for the transmission of intelligence information. The enemies of the United States. Back then, it was Soviet Russia. They're used as a cover for espionage. They use this as a cover to sabotage industry and transportation. It's used as a cover to undermine national security. It's used as a cover. To prepare and to influence and to win over millions of people in support of a foreign policy led by an alien government likely General, Milley said earlier. So we had Russia. Against our own country. And it's used as a cover to defend communists, the sworn enemies of our great heritage. And these are just some of the things that he talked about in his, uh 19. 58. I believe I'm reading that right 1958 testimony in front of a congressional committee. This is the part that I think is just so remarkable. This stuff was called out. You know, probably in 2019. I filled in for the great one. Mark Levin and I talked about this comic, You know, like the type you see in the newspaper. That had these stair steps on it and it really it made such an impression on me. I talk about it all the time. So if you've heard to spare with me And I always say I'm going to retweet it again. But it really was remarkable. It's got these stair steps and on it. It has different steps that the Bolsheviks had laid out to conduct the Bolshevik Revolution. And again. This was 1900. And it was things like, organized and then take over organized labor or take over the unions. And, you know, take over the schools and control the means of production. You know, So many people think all Marxism is just a social theory. You know, Marx was social scientist. He was this and that this is just an economic theory why he's giving him so much credit. Lamentably. We're just giving you not enough credit because you don't reading comprehensively is not something you're good at. You need to read and read a little bit more to learn that this is something that has crept into every aspect of of culture. This is and I'm going to say it's an attack on culture, but I think they view our way of life as an attack on the culture that they believe in. And that's why I say this is about the free marketplace of ideas. And the best ideas have to win more on this straight ahead. We will continue.
The Marxist Agenda of the Modern American Journalist
"I pointed out a month or five weeks ago or so that marks profession as long as profession anyway was as a journalist. And it's not a surprise that when you see the the american marxist today in these various news platforms although the night but they deny whatever they want. I don't give a damn what they do not remember. This is part of the case. We're going to make the case. Use our language. Use it properly and identify what we need to identify. But he was a so-called journalist in the modern journalists so called are using marxists tactics and many of them don't even know it. They just play on a social activist on page ninety. Four point out in an interview with james ledbetter the editor of dispatches for the new york tribune a two thousand and a book of marxist articles for the tribune yes he wrote for the new york tribune ledbetter who looked at all the articles explains that the basic marks approach to his new york tribune columnist at an event that was in the news and election and uprising the second opium war the outbreak of the american civil war and sift through it until he could boil it down to some fundamental questions of politics or economics and then on those questions he would make his judgment and their sense marxist journalism does resemble some of the writing that is published today in journals of opinion and it is not hard to see a direct line between marxist journalistic writing and the kind of ten days writing on public affairs that characterized much political journalism. He says especially in europe but this was written some time ago. It's especially now in america in the twentieth century. So he wrote that in two thousand eight so the modern american journalists so called is not what the framers of the constitution had in mind. They're not about freedom of speech. They have taken the approach of karl marx himself. As who's was a journalist for a long time.

Justin Marks had a great Cup Series race on Monday
"Justin.

Yeah i mean it was great. I was not there unfortunately out of conflict. I couldn't move for monday. So that was a heartbreaker but i was. I was hanging onto every every lap on my phone tv communicating with the guys during the race. So yeah i mean it was. It was a great day for our team. It really was. I mean we we have. We believe that we're capable of doing great things in this order and it comes down to just trying to prepare as best. We can weaken and week out making sure that we we all rally behind. Daniel give him a piece of equipment capable of exposing his talent his ability to the best possible possible level. So i think we did that yesterday. I i think nobody really knew what to expect.

I think the guy's really relished that lead in the bat and enjoyed that but it was really really really nice to watch. It's just nice nice for guys and a lot of confidence with big confidence builder for the guys and a special day.
A Utopian Life - Is It Possible? Experiment vs. Reality
"Well let me start out. By saying that dystopia n- fiction is kind of like science fiction. It's that are happening. That really could maybe perhaps happen. Like a world war or some kind of something that is apocalyptic and so that kind of thing can happen perhaps okay but utopian fiction is the exact opposite and it is something of a perfect world that we want to be in from the merriam webster dictionary we find this definition proposing or advocating ideal social and political schemes and one who believes in the perfection of human society. Well utopias work in two ways walking away from the extreme happiness of a utopia to perhaps find something better. Whatever that is or to walk away from an apocalyptic dystopia in life for the happiness and hope of a utopian life that is better but what is the utopian life. I am careful to note that. It is known that karl marx and frederick engels have studied a utopian way of life to some extent in the form of communism but first let's begin by finding out about what a utopia really is. Well you really is. Happiness and hope perhaps built on someone else's misery or knowing happiness by seeing or imagining the opposite. Well that sounds okay right. A lot of utopian concepts include simplifying. Human life sounds okay to being more in touch with religion or nature. Yep that sounds okay. Social improvement again sounds okay a visionary dreamlike ideal of political and social systems. That sounds okay to well. Utopia is often defined as a place of ideal perfection especially in law's government and social conditions a utopia described as an imaginary remote place. That's right and perhaps it has an impossible ideal of being visionary from the website classical wisdom dot com. I find this ever since there were people and places there has been desire for other different people and ideal perfect places. And what is this website talking about. They're talking about utopia such an important word and it means so much and our society today a word that has its origins and ancient greece which has a translation meeting of no place. Everything is a place but not utopia. Utopia is an imagined place of perfection. Don't forget that it's something that we strive for. Dust being there is no place such as this while writer sir thomas more was a philosophical genius and knew that he must be open to the idea of there being a better place or at least proving that there is no utopia no good place. In other words you see the word. Utopia is greek and was developed and fifteen sixteen. So when coming up with this concept of no place sir. Thomas more was having fun and poking a little fun and playing where the definition of a good place or no place meaning. No place is really perfect. The earliest generic use of utopia was for an imaginary and indefinitely. Remote place like an island kind of the current use of utopia referring to an ideal place or society was inspired by tyler. Moore's description the dreaming of a better world is almost as old as the world itself. We all have that dream even today as humans. We always desire better. Don't we i know i do. Let's look at what some of these concepts of utopia really are well and utopia. There is nothing private anywhere. The doors and the people's houses are open to anyone who wants to enter them the utopians either meals and public and where they all eat is in common place. It is a capital offense to engage in private discussions about public affairs and the business of politics can only be done and public
How to Give Visitors a Wow! Experience
"Priscilla rice and I'm coming to you from Live Oak recording studio in Berkeley, California, and I'm joined on the phone today by the founder and the chief Visionary officer of BNI. Dr. Ivan misner. Hello, How are you? And where are you this week? I am in addition to many recorded visits all around the world. I am Live this week June for a regional compact. In event, so I'm in Canada this week. That sounds all right. Now also this week I have a guest this is his fifth visit to as a guest to be an iPod cast and his name is Mark Applebaum. Mark has been would be and I for over 15 years. He's been a director consultant for more than five years. He's long and successful chapters in the b&i Utah and North Region Marx married to his amazing life. He says Tiffany for almost twenty years with two children Ryan and Tom Jenna and one of the things that Mark loves to do is to teach chapter members how to give visitors a wow experience. I can't think of anything better than that. Welcome back Mark mm contest. Thank you so much. I've it's great to be back. What's good to have you here? And you want to start by talking about making visitors female wanted so the floors your home. Well, thank you, you know a little background of where my y about this topic came up his growing up. I grew up back east in New York and my dad owned a pet store or at the time when I was growing up and I worked for my dad for many years and my dad was the world to me and he struggled a lot financially. So if a customer ever left his store, but happy it really affects his livelihood. So I was did my best to if a customer wasn't having a positive experience at least have them leads as happy as possible and you know in vni every visitor is not only a potential customer to be an eye, but it's a potential customer for ourselves. It's a their potential referral partners for ourselves more could lead us to potential customers or referral Partners. So how we treat our visitors. It's just imperative. So this podcast, you know, if you're a visitor host. It's not just meant for the visitor house out there. It's really meant for every single member to take on the mindset of a visit. Post because we all play a role in that visitor experience and it's in the future success of our chapter know let me just add one thing to you real quick. I know if you know this, but when I started back we didn't have visitor hosts. One of the things I said was that if you invited a visitor you had to be there host and honestly that didn't work as well. So because not everybody's created equal as a host wage and we did create visitor host. But that was my initial concept with b and I was that everybody had to be a host especially the person that invited them and I love the story to share in in givors gained about the visitor you sent to a chapter who ended up going to a different chapter who's the chapter that actually designed to visit our house program. That's either story. So everyone listening think about the region your chapters in and the amount of chapters you have in your region and just here in the Utah North Region. We have fifty three chapters and just in the Salt Lake area we have over 2,000 chapter wage. So depending on what what a visitor does they really in a twenty-mile radius twenty-minute radius. They have a wide variety of of chapters to choose from. So if you if the for the people if you take a moment and think about your chapter and the culture that it has now imagine for a moment every chapter in your region met at the same time the same day in the same location as all the other chapters sure that's not possible. But imagine it was for a moment. Yeah, I would a visitor choose your chapter over all the other ones and you know, it really comes down to what the poet Maya Angelou says best people will forget what you said people will forget what you did but people will never forget how you made them feel. Yes, what a visitor feel welcomed and important. They're more likely to want more of that and yep. That's why we all play a role in that positive experience. Whether you're the visitor host or not your contribution to your chapter and that in your involvement with how the visitor enters the room and Enterprise is in call and and welcoming them really makes such a difference. So a few examples of ideas that members and chapters can take on that could be very beneficial to them. The first is off when the visitor is already registered in BNI connect. The leadership team will receive an email saying so-and-so is registered to to visit on this particular day. Right? Well, the idea would be that the president of the chapter soon after getting that email sends a personal email to that visitor and also on that email they copy on the email other members in the chapter that are complementary to the visitor and then purpose of all that is 1 to let the visitor know how excited they are to meet them to to give them any instructions. They they may need to you know, show up but yep. To really let the visitor know that these other members could be great power Partners together with that visitor and so a great success story. I'd like to share is about three years ago as a director. One of my roles was placing visitors helping visitors find Chapters and I was working with one professional and his business was custom mens clothing and because of his schedule I took it into three different chapters and the third chapter he went to the president at the time Steve level who's the business attorney in the chapter was phenomenal at doing this and so he sent this personal email to this month custom clothing gentleman, and he see see the financial adviser and the family law attorney on on the email who both of them also replied to the custom clothing gentleman saying Thursday, we looks so we look forward to meeting you we too could use help with their own wardrobe and that visitor ended up visiting and a couple of weeks later. He ended wage. Joining and a couple of weeks later. I called them to say to figure out why he picked that chapter over the other two and in his words. He said that that chapter had an unfair Advantage because without one month then, you know connected to the members before they even met them that he wanted to join a group and three years later. He still a member of the group
"marx" Discussed on HOW NOT TO BE AVERAGE
"Carl would begin to grow more politically zealous so much that he would receive letters of concern from his father. His father expressed concerns over what he called Karl's demons. And I would say honestly his father was probably spot-on but in 1843 Carl would go on to marry a woman from a respected family in the area and they moved to Paris while in Paris car would meet a young man. That would become a lifelong friend and collaborator Frederick Engels. Ultimately car would be expelled from parents and moved to Belgium. What's odd is that during this time? Carl wrote an essay on the freedom of press where he claims he believed that censorship could hack only evil consequences. So I'm not sure that today's American mainstream Media or social media companies have really read those readings or read those writings wage. You know, I don't know maybe somebody out there in the audience should send them a copy and see how evil censorship is. Well in Belgium car was introduced to socialism and this is where he becomes basically to Karl Marx that we know today. This is also where he writes his most famous writer of the Communist Manifesto. Ultimately car was too radical for Belgium and they would expel him from their country. And then from there he would go back to France and get expelled again. And then finally after not being accepted back in Prussia. He landed in London and though he was never given citizenship in London. He still lived out the remainder of his life there. So that's sort of the backstory of Karl Marx, but this is where I wanted to go more. So Carl, despite all his writings never earned a living wage. And basically he was largely supported by angles his whole life Karl. Marx was a mooch home was a bump in my mind. This is below average a man should be able to care for his family and care for himself. Carl was not able to do that. Secondly Karl Marx was a racist pretty clear-cut in his racism wasn't separate from his ideas. They were Central to his ideas his ideology demands that some ethnicities would have to be swallowed up by more powerful groups and racism, you know even needs to be said is below average position to hold it is today was then so, you know juxtaposed that with our founding fathers, you know, while some of our founding fathers were slaveholders possibly racist, their ideology was not based in racism..

"Today. We're taking a look at a quotes from Benjamin Lefty Ruggiero. Ruggiero was a notorious thug and is thought to have murdered twenty six people during his thirty years working for the New York via with reputation as a loyal soldier for the banana family. It's hardly shocking. That he wants said a little violence never heard anyone. This catchy Zinger is attributed to reject Rogelio in the memoirs of former FBI agent. Joseph pistone. Who spent time in deep cover with the mafia hosing as a jewel thief named Donnie Brasco? Pistone had convinced Ribero to bring him into the banana crime family. Soon after they met in the early nineteen seventy s. Ruggieri's relationship with the man he knew as Donnie BRASCO began to blur the lines. Between professional and personal to lefty Rasco was a close friend. And protege someone. He could pass on his wealth of racketeering experience to Roscoe run the bookmaking business and he often dined at rose home with his family. In the Mafia the divide between friend and colleague is inherently muddy to bring a new member into the family is to vouch for them by opening the door to the banana organization. Lefty had staked his life on brass goes loyalty. Which means that if things went sideways both of their lives would be forfeit. A career spent dealing in these life and death. Absolutes may have walked reg- aero's comprehension of violence to him. Aggression was a form of currency something to be bonded and sold and as a racketeer. Bloodshed was a key part of the business model without the threat of violence. His Marx would have less incentive to open their wallets. Of course those threats had to have true weight behind them which is where. Aero's reputation came into play during his criminal career. He murdered twenty-six people either to serve his own interests or those of the people paying him when the occasion called for it he reached for his two pistols one for each hand. Earning him his other nickname to guns. According to pistone regierung may have had a reputation as a killer but in his everyday life he didn't often resort to violence to him. It seemed bloodshed was a business transaction. And if that upset You well. That wasn't his problem. What was his problem was Donnie BRASCO agent? Stones initial assignment was a six month. Sting to gather information about truck hijacking but eventually it grew into almost five years of working undercover gathering Intel on Jero and his associates in the banana family when his superiors finally ordered an end to the operation. In July of Nineteen eighty-one they visited the head of the crew. Sonny black in person to tell him the truth about brass goes identity for the mistake of allowing an FBI agent to infiltrate the Mafia sonny black was murdered and had his hands cut off by his fellow mobsters. It was a fate that was meant to await lefty Jero as well but he was arrested and held in custody by the FBI for his own protection and for the protection of their undercover agent at reject rose trial prosecutors revealed that he had made a concerted effort to find and kill agent pistone wants his betrayal was revealed but he never got the chance. The evidence pistone had collected led to over one hundred convictions including Gyros ironically for a man whose business was governed by murder kindness to someone. He took a friend had been his undoing in the end regierung might not have seen the in little violence but he certainly felt the painful sting of betrayal.

Marx's curriculum vitae says a lot economist philosopher journalist sociologist political theorist historian. Add to that socialist communist in the original meaning of the word and revolutionary and. That's just a start. Karl Heinrich Marx was one of the most respected minds of the nineteenth century. His meditations on how societies work and how they should work have informed and challenged humans for more than one hundred and fifty years. Yet to the uninitiated marks may be only a bushy mugged symbol of revolution the father of communism the hater of capitalism. He's considered by many especially in the West as the man whose ideas spurred authoritarian communist regimes in Russia China and beyond that again is selling the man short. Because it's not entirely right in his book Karl Marx. A nineteenth century life author. Jonathan Sperber wrote viewed positively. Marks is a far seeing profit social and economic developments an advocate of the emancipatory transformation of state and society from a negative point. Marks is one of those most responsible for the pernicious and features of the modern world. If nothing else marks was a keen observer of the human condition he was deep finger with bold ideas about how to make life better we spoke with Lawrence Talmon who teaches a course on marks and philosophy at the University of Chicago and is the CO author of a chapter on Marx and Marxism in the rootlets. Handbook of philosophy and Relativism domine said Marx himself was first and foremost kind of scientist. He was a student of reality but he himself struggled throughout the course of his career. How exactly to put his ideas to politics. It's important to note that despite his one time lofty standing in what was then the Soviet Union marks was born in tier in the Kingdom of Prussia in eighteen eighteen. That's what's now known. As the Rheinland area of western Germany. After the failed German Revolution of Eighteen. Forty eight marks fled to London where he eventually died in eighteen eighty three. He's buried beneath a large tomb in London's highgate cemetery. Inscribed with the words workers of all lands unite but marks grew up privileged the son of well off and liberal parents in an ancient town that had been racked for decades before his birth by Warren Revolution that upheaval cultural religious and political shaped his parents and was a big part of young. Marx's upbringing later marks attended universities studying law and philosophy where he became engaged to and later married a Prussian baroness it was well studied philosophy and law that marks introduced the works of German Philosopher Yard Ville Helm Friedrich. Hegel whose ideas he used to later. Form his take on Communism Marx began a career. As journalists early twenties writing for radical newspapers in Cologne and Paris the route he consorted with other liberal minded philosophers and by his mid twenties met and collaborated with one of the major influences in his life. Friedrich Engels it was angles who convinced marks that societies working class would be the instrument to fuel revolutions and bring about a more fair and just society in eighteen forty eight the to published a pamphlet. That would be the basis for a new political movement. The communist manifesto in eighteen eighty three after Marx's death engels summed up the main idea in the communist manifesto like this quote that economic production and the structure of society of every stoorikhel epoch necessarily arising therefrom constitute the foundation for the political and intellectual history of that epoch the consequently ever since the dissolution of the primeval communal ownership of land. All history has been a history of class struggles of struggles between exploited and exploiting between dominated and dominating classes at various stages of social evolution. That this struggle however has now reached a stage where the exploited and oppressed class. The proletariat can no longer emancipate itself from the class which exploits and oppresses it. The bourgeoisie without at the same time forever. Freeing the whole of society exploitation oppression and class struggles domine explained marks was always concerned to understand the real underlying causes of social phenomenon the events and institutions that kind of shape the social world marks wanted to kind of dig down beneath the appearances and see what was really going on early on in his career. He thought that the best arena to do that in was philosophy and then as time went on he transitioned more into the social sciences. What's most important about marks is that he very much had a kind of engineering mentality about society he wanted to know. What makes it work? And how if we want to change it do we change it. What are the levers that we have to pull? Marx's eighteen forty seven economics work capital a critique of political economy a takedown of capitalism that decried the exploitation of the working class crystallized debate one that continues today between the West's ruling social and economic theory capitalism and Marx's idea of communism too many. It's a fight that hits rich versus poor bourgeoisie versus proletariate ruling class versus workers. And it's even more than that to those who debate it. It's right versus wrong. An argument about the best path to a perfect society. But that of course is very simplistic and doesn't get Marx's thinking right the Allman said above all else the association the people have with marks is that he some Utopian Pie in the sky dreaming a perfect world that is free of all the nastiness we live in now really that couldn't be further from the truth.

Who Was Karl Marx, and What Were His Philosophies?
"With glance at Karl. Marx's curriculum vitae says a lot economist philosopher journalist sociologist political theorist historian. Add to that socialist communist in the original meaning of the word and revolutionary and. That's just a start. Karl Heinrich Marx was one of the most respected minds of the nineteenth century. His meditations on how societies work and how they should work have informed and challenged humans for more than one hundred and fifty years. Yet to the uninitiated marks may be only a bushy mugged symbol of revolution the father of communism the hater of capitalism. He's considered by many especially in the West as the man whose ideas spurred authoritarian communist regimes in Russia China and beyond that again is selling the man short. Because it's not entirely right in his book Karl Marx. A nineteenth century life author. Jonathan Sperber wrote viewed positively. Marks is a far seeing profit social and economic developments an advocate of the emancipatory transformation of state and society from a negative point. Marks is one of those most responsible for the pernicious and features of the modern world. If nothing else marks was a keen observer of the human condition he was deep finger with bold ideas about how to make life better we spoke with Lawrence Talmon who teaches a course on marks and philosophy at the University of Chicago and is the CO author of a chapter on Marx and Marxism in the rootlets. Handbook of philosophy and Relativism domine said Marx himself was first and foremost kind of scientist. He was a student of reality but he himself struggled throughout the course of his career. How exactly to put his ideas to politics. It's important to note that despite his one time lofty standing in what was then the Soviet Union marks was born in tier in the Kingdom of Prussia in eighteen eighteen. That's what's now known. As the Rheinland area of western Germany. After the failed German Revolution of Eighteen. Forty eight marks fled to London where he eventually died in eighteen eighty three. He's buried beneath a large tomb in London's highgate cemetery. Inscribed with the words workers of all lands unite but marks grew up privileged the son of well off and liberal parents in an ancient town that had been racked for decades before his birth by Warren Revolution that upheaval cultural religious and political shaped his parents and was a big part of young. Marx's upbringing later marks attended universities studying law and philosophy where he became engaged to and later married a Prussian baroness it was well studied philosophy and law that marks introduced the works of German Philosopher Yard Ville Helm Friedrich. Hegel whose ideas he used to later. Form his take on Communism Marx began a career. As journalists early twenties writing for radical newspapers in Cologne and Paris the route he consorted with other liberal minded philosophers and by his mid twenties met and collaborated with one of the major influences in his life. Friedrich Engels it was angles who convinced marks that societies working class would be the instrument to fuel revolutions and bring about a more fair and just society in eighteen forty eight the to published a pamphlet. That would be the basis for a new political movement. The communist manifesto in eighteen eighty three after Marx's death engels summed up the main idea in the communist manifesto like this quote that economic production and the structure of society of every stoorikhel epoch necessarily arising therefrom constitute the foundation for the political and intellectual history of that epoch the consequently ever since the dissolution of the primeval communal ownership of land. All history has been a history of class struggles of struggles between exploited and exploiting between dominated and dominating classes at various stages of social evolution. That this struggle however has now reached a stage where the exploited and oppressed class. The proletariat can no longer emancipate itself from the class which exploits and oppresses it. The bourgeoisie without at the same time forever. Freeing the whole of society exploitation oppression and class struggles domine explained marks was always concerned to understand the real underlying causes of social phenomenon the events and institutions that kind of shape the social world marks wanted to kind of dig down beneath the appearances and see what was really going on early on in his career. He thought that the best arena to do that in was philosophy and then as time went on he transitioned more into the social sciences. What's most important about marks is that he very much had a kind of engineering mentality about society he wanted to know. What makes it work? And how if we want to change it do we change it. What are the levers that we have to pull? Marx's eighteen forty seven economics work capital a critique of political economy a takedown of capitalism that decried the exploitation of the working class crystallized debate one that continues today between the West's ruling social and economic theory capitalism and Marx's idea of communism too many. It's a fight that hits rich versus poor bourgeoisie versus proletariate ruling class versus workers. And it's even more than that to those who debate it. It's right versus wrong. An argument about the best path to a perfect society. But that of course is very simplistic and doesn't get Marx's thinking right the Allman said above all else the association the people have with marks is that he some Utopian Pie in the sky dreaming a perfect world that is free of all the nastiness we live in now really that couldn't be further from the truth. Marks had a kind of engineering mindset. He was probably of all the major figures in the history of political thought the most practical the most realistic he was the most concerned with what is really possible. In the real world what marks to find as communism boiled down society that produces goods only for human need not for profit and in which there is no master slave royalty peasants owner worker relationship and therefore no need to overthrow.

Democrats pummel Bernie Sanders on communism
"You so much to talk about here we go into the South Carolina debate with Biden over the last couple of days really picking up steam now Bloomberg not part of South Carolina but if you look at the polls for super Tuesday right now in the national polls remember going in the opposite direction that he probably wished to go in so Biden leading South Carolina right now but in other states like California you have you've got Sanders taking a huge lead so it'll be interesting to see what happens over the next couple of days and if a buying does pick up any momentum in any of the other states when we come to Saturday but I think you know just looking at the debate the other night and just looking at really Bernie Sanders the last couple of days we were we'd really is and seeing the reaction will have more reaction coming up from Democrats here we really do live in amazing times don't you think we live in amazing times I mean I never thought and I'm still shaking my head yesterday as I was talking to a couple of people including my dad and I said and and I said this on the air last night welcome but it still holds water today I really can't believe that you had a democratic debate and the Democrats are now discussing right now will the legitimacy of somebody who was a communist sympathizer weather sympathizing for a dictatorial communist regime it is something that's good or bad I did suggest to me it's the most mind boggling thing and the one question the the one thing to me that is invented enough is what does the mainstream Democrat thank what are Democrats think about this that's one of the things because they go out may vote older Democrats vote just like older Republicans vote but what do they think you know I go back to my late uncle if he was alive would be in his believe late seventies right now and you know he union guy voted Democrat more of a social conservative though probably would call them a blue dog Democrat but I just I wonder what they think and I can't get a handle on it Democrats are quiet all my Democrat friends quiet I'm on social media just quiet yeah I was listening to a a appointments from talk radio from I'll see if I can find the quote ahead at the end of yesterday I don't know if it's still around today it's got to be somewhere but an old acquaintance liberal talk show host who was a fox news contributor Leslie Marshall you cannot get more liberal than she is we see each other she used to be a talk show host in buffalo word that's how I got you know to know her you know going back what twenty five years ago maybe maybe close to thirty years ago and I cheered talk radio conventions and all that's when we're quite well and extremely liberal stream liberal well she was just going crazy about Bernie Sanders on fox news that goes via to me yesterday the day before about Cuba just going crazy absolutely crazy and I think about her I think about other Democrats are just going this this is just unbelievable you we've you've taken it too Sanders has taken it to a level that has not existed before in the Democrat party or any major party in my lifetime it what it's not even about should we have a bigger social welfare program it's not even about that anymore the debate that the Democrats have had for the last week is because birdies out there all the time saying we need to talk about the positive communist dictatorships was we said that's ridiculous that's like saying well okay you know Kim Jong moon they got full employment yeah sounds insane doesn't it because it is and I just I shake my head and I do understand the Democrat establishment going home my god you've got to be kidding me haha how did we get to this point we got to this point because you've been promoting socialist ideas for the longest time you've been watering and fertilizing it all throughout college campuses for the last couple of decades what did you expect was going to happen this is what you get you get somebody who was a lifelong communist not running as a communist now running as a social Democrat but as you can see from Bernie Sanders he's a lifelong Marxist twenty is that's not over the top rhetoric that's not even Republican talking points maybe it is now after it became a huge democratic talking point and this guy's a lifelong Marx's communist that's what he is he may not be running as he may be trying to run away from it now this is is running to the middle but he just can't stop that instinct that he has as a Marxist where he's got to in his mind remote the fact not a just a bigger social welfare program but you gotta understand there's a lot of good that comes from communism even in a dictatorship a dictatorial communist nation there is still some good that comes from it to the life of me what is the mainstream democratic thinking about this right now what's in their mind set we got just one bit of correspondence yesterday from a Bernie Sanders supporter sane well you know Bernie isn't that bad he's not as scary as he seems I would walk out with your job then you you understand the point that the imagery that he's giving out is scary but he's not as scary as he seems we did get an explanation as to why he's not as scary as he seems what do you even recognize the fact that yeah okay it seems as if he's complimenting eight you know and trying to find the good in a not just eight not just a socialist society or a communist one party society but a communist society that's run but that was run by a dictator and I just wonder what the mainstream Democrat the you know it in the flyover state thinks about that and even the mainstream Democrat who may not live in flyover territory who might not be what they used to call a blue dot org dog Democrat what are they thinking that to me is the great unknown if Sanders ends up being the nominee what are they thinking at that point you know I was kidding but I wasn't yesterday when I was saying but a ton of Bernie Sanders supporters I know we've talked to the many many times not as much this cycle but in twenty sixteen but we talk to them all the time on the show they would call constantly and we try to find out you know what is what is their particular mindset and back then it was basically I want my college paid for because a lot of the Bernie Sanders people to call the show back then were younger and that's what was going on in twenty sixteen that was the big thing coming out of occupy Wall Street a few years earlier that that's the one thing that stock was colleges are lying to us and colleges are telling us that if we take this particular course for this would graduate with this particular degree we'll be able to find a job we can't find a job the college's lied to us so we need to bankrupt the banks did make any sense but that that was a narrative somebody has to pay our bill we shouldn't have to pay our bill well maybe you should do a lawsuit against the university and see if you could win that why does the taxpayer have to be responsible for the transaction that you were involved in and most of them would say well because it's hard and we just can't afford to do it but it really didn't go much past that but now Sanders is taking it to another level it's not just the billionaires are bad and somehow inherently evil and you are a victim if you're a young person and you can't make it today unless the federal government gives you cash it's gone way beyond that now to the point of complementing and looking at the bright side of a communist
"marx" Discussed on Sodajerker On Songwriting
"Of what to say to me. So many people tried to be of comfort to me but he just sorta knew what to say and we had several really really long conversations. That were really helpful to me. That helped and we were great friends. Obviously but he was just wise in that way and he you know he had lost his father when he was twelve or something so it made total sense to him. He's like if I'm GonNa read about my father. I'm going to read it with Richard so I I'm just so grateful that I got that phone call But yeah and then through my veins that you mentioned is I don't know if it's my favorite song written but it's in the top three TOA. It's definitely a song that I would put an a time capsule as some of my best work. I think and again one of those songs. I couldn't keep up with once. I confronted. Okay I'm going to write about this. By ran from it for several years because the the emotion of it in the weight of it was too much for me to really deal with and then when it happened to thirty in the morning. I was cleaning up my studio and I was getting me to go to bed and then I just sat at the piano and the next thing you forty minutes later. That's almost done and I couldn't be more proud of now as well. You should be really. It's a beautiful song and I mean for us. We both lost our dads in recent years. So I'm sorry it really hits home with us you know. Yeah there's also very little written word about the father son dynamic. There's I think that there are quite a few books from my research is quite a few books about mothers and daughters. There's not a lot that's been written and studied about that dynamic between a father and a son and those relationships can be really complex and complicated mine was not mine was just love and like he was my best friend on top of everything else so. I still wrestle with it sometimes. and it's been twenty years but twenty three years actually but that makes it may be a little bit more difficult to write about. Because you don't have a lot of source material you know you gotta just feel it and write it. Absolutely one of the other ones is leaving years. The living years is It's a much bigger theme than just father son and losing your father but that verse always killed me. You know about his father. So yeah. There's some songs out there that really say well Richard. We catch you just about long enough. I think well it's been a pleasure guys. Thanks so much few times which is all right. Guys Take Care.

New York Icons: Kaufman Astoria Studios
"New York for its entire. History has brought people together of wildly different backgrounds and that might be different races or cultures or a geographic areas Irish people and Jews and African Americans and you know Italians but also different classes. You had the tenement girl and the rich playboy and everybody in between well. That's just a natural for storytelling. But when these stories were told by Hollywood what was distinctly New York about them could get flattened out for the mainstream. If you look today at a Marx brothers movies the first couple of Marx brothers films. They're throwing all these terms around. Mommy's Nora Nori. There is Jewish for free loader animal crackers in the coconuts where designs you know for a New York audience but when the Marx Brothers then do moved to Hollywood and they begin making films for MGM. There's no Yiddish in those movies anymore. Right they become the sort of universal. You Know Hollywood movie Marx Brothers that that's from forty second street classical nine hundred thirty three musical about the Broadway chorus girl who becomes a star that connick number has the busby Berkeley dance formations but it also has the skyline the elevated train street vendors and attempted rape and murder. It's a film about New York. Made in Hollywood that helped form what sanders calls the mythic city. That dream version of New York. That's a distillation of the real place. Forty Second Street and all those back stage musicals that were made all the homes that were about the putting on of a Broadway show. They were shot in Broadway theaters. They were shot in Hollywood sound stage theaters. You know there was just endless numbers of these amazing films which did not have a single frame except possibly the establishing shot the opening shot would be shot in New York as the credits ran by with music behind him in. May Nineteen thirty. Three paramount turned the Astoria studios over to its main creditor western electric that companies filmmaking arm Eastern Services Studios INC operated it as a rental studio for independent productions. Its output varied widely. The Scoundrel for example was set in Manhattan's literary world. Noel Coward plays a ruthless hated publisher. Julian place the woman he charms. Mary's then abandoned putting something happened. Man I do live. I hope you're playing folk killed when you're dying using it on. The homepage of the year does not think of human when he dies. He's condemned to damnation unless he finds one person on Earth to mourn. Him novelists writes Ben. Hecht and Charles MacArthur rotated but at Astoria. They also got to produce and direct. They won an academy award for best original. We don't be Marquette. Hulu your new. There was a series of Spanish language. Musical starring Tangos Star Carlos Gardell Tambien. A nineteen thirty. Three's Emperor Jones was based on the controversial Eugene O'Neill play main character was a black pullman porter who escapes prison to become dictator of a small island. The film could only have been made with independent funding. Then the studios were called to service for World War Two. The Department acquired the property in Nineteen Forty Two and the pictorial center of the army. Signal Corps moved into make trading and propaganda films. They expanded the facility and built barracks for the soldiers. The army used motion pictures in the war effort and turned to experienced filmmakers for help frank. Capra worked on a series of orientation films called why we fight one episode related to our won the Oscar for best documentary. Just what was it? Made US change our way of living overnight but turned our resources are machines our whole nation into one vast awesome producing more and more weapons of war instead of the old materials by the end of the war the ABC employed over two thousand people making movies over half of them civilians. All this work even brought new film techniques like multiple angles shooting and change film in even more momentous ways for five years American audience. It has been seeing newsreels. And it's someone you know. A movie maker said well you couldn't you couldn't bring in the enemy for for production meeting you know before. The battle and people went out with sixteen millimeter cameras. And these lightweight cameras that could go everywhere. They saw actual action after the war audiences and creators had developed a taste for this more realistic filmmaking. There was an appetite. For a new kind of filmmaking. That would be used more available light less contrived cinematography be shot with faster. Granier film be more shot on location and feel more like a took place in real place and not this kind of fabricated construct and be more adult this desire for realism meant the glossy representations of New York. That Hollywood made before the war wouldn't do director is like Ilya. Kazan felt their stories needed New York locations and New York talent. You don't understand I coulda had class. Gerber contamination could have been somebody by the MID FIFTIES NEW YORK. Filmmakers were more than just contenders. The Oscar wins for on the waterfront in nineteen fifty five and Mardi fifty six affirm. That excellence could come from outside. Hollywood New York is setting is capable of whatever mood or dramatic statement? You WanNa make architecturally in its light for talk about winter light as Mr Bergman did. New York's winter light image. That Sidney Lumet in the documentary film titled by Sidney Lumet. He grew up on the lower east side in nineteen fifty seven. He went from directing theater and TV. Two movies with twelve angry men. You're asking us to believe that somebody else did the stabbing with exactly the same kind of knife. Larger a million or one go onto make more New York classics like Serpico Dog Day afternoon and network. He died in twenty eleven. I'm not comfortable anyplace but New York when I leave New York for any other place in the United States My nose starts to bleed. Filmmakers at this time took full advantage of New York locations for their exterior shooting. When they needed a controlled indoor set they may do with whatever studios were available. Tv Or old movie studios the old Bronx by graph for example operated as a rental studio under different names until the seventy s the Astoria Studios. Meanwhile were still occupied by the army. There was some leftover stages from the twenty s and they reuse them and Sidney Lumet told me amazing stories of going onto these studios which he was in an editing room up in the Bronx. That had been Edison's old editing suite with an e draw you know kind of worked into the curtains E for Edison. These were the oldest movie studios in the world and they were using them in the nineteen fifties to make all those great early in mid fifty s movies like Twelve angry men and on the waterfront the city eventually recognized how vital New York and the screener to each other in nineteen sixty six mayor. John established the first mayor's film office in the world to lower hurdles to filming their Lindsay's film office streamline the permitting process and removed a lot of red tape for shooting in the city he even dedicated a police. Unit to location shoots then in nineteen seventy. The army moved production to different site and turned the Astoria property over to the federal government. This was not simply a movement of some soldiers because most of the people making the films were grips carpenters electricians and actress who were part of. New York's commercial motion picture industry so they were not at all happy when this plug got pulled in Astoria. The complex sat abandoned. For years unprotected and open vandals people would go in there. Rip The copper out of the walls and those people with a purpose then they were also just people in there for mischief terrible condition in the meantime you have this eyesore at the edge of a residential communities have halfway between the area and Long Island city. It's just getting worse and worse and worse. They abandoned cars dropped all around weeds growing through the sidewalk. I remember this very clearly. The film unions local community and the city got together to preserve the studio site. Save film jobs and clean up the neighborhood in nineteen seventy seven. They formed the nonprofit a story of Motion Picture and Television Center Foundation. They managed to prevent the studio from being sold off or turn down by getting the site on the National Register of historic places a process that normally took years.

I discovered you first when you did. Backups on Chicago's seventeen. And you you donny. Osmond that's my question when you do that sort of thing when you're recession guy. Doing backup vocals. Do they bring you in at the same time do you do. Do you lay down on your track separately that let's talk about music delayed on your tracks. This didn't work for you. Well the last time you talked about museum how. How does that work when you're when you're when you donate together? I guess yeah I mean look for the most part being a background vocal session singer which is what I was for a few years. Here's while I was trying to get a record deal So I sang on Madonna. RECOR MADONNA RECORD AND WHITNEY HOUSTON. And and you're you're Whitney's biggest hits slick you're right. Aren't you know but I'm on that album I But I'm on some blinds biggest. Kenny Rogers Guy Sang for a lot of different people. And what happens. Is that the only way to really do background. Vocals is once. The lead vocal has been finished and completed in his put together in his perfect. So then you come in and you harmonize and you do you do parts around that. So Mo Ninety nine percent of the time. The artists wasn't even there. It was just me the in the producer and and sometimes I would be with a group of singers but that day was I I actually wrote I was sort in the Chicago Band camp at that time and I was I wrote a song with Robert Lamm For nothing which ultimately didn't didn't make the album but it was on the USA for Africa. Later it was okay But I you know hung out with with him a lot and I knew Peter and And so I was just at the studio Wedneday and I had become friends with donny. Osmond at that time Who was trying to get something going of his own own and we just? We think it's that we went to lunch together and we stopped by the studio which down the street in right near here like a COUPLA couple blocks from here and it was a studio. That's no longer. They're caught the lighthouse dining just kind of popped our heads in like hang out and the producer. David Foster went. Hey we need back on both as Richard dining perfect. That's perfect and so they just changed. They switch gears completely. They put the real. That's all we can stop the hurt. And and we went out and learned the part and Donny and I sang it like Stan right next to each other it was cool. It literally just walked by after lunch. Yeah creators I mean. They probably would've called me because I was working on the record But it was so. It's such perfect timing that you know. Oh Shit Richard Donner here. Let's get him on the record. That's that's a great song that's A. That's a really good song but a lot of good stuff on that record that's a very good record And it's so weird because as a as a session in kid of nineteen I think and then in the last year maybe like six months ago here. I am doing a show in somewhere in northern California with Peter and a sort of like giving each other a big hug. Yeah all these years later like it's such a family. It's such a commute that you know the music. The music community is such a we. We never hang out. There's very few of us that there's very few singers who are friends And I don't think it's just a competition thing I think it's just the nature of we're all like we were saying we're all kind of loners weird and But I really liked Peter and it was great to see. Am and we shared a stage together was awesome. That's great show. Did you say students come out. And we didn't collaborate on that one but we've talked about it. I would totally do a a run of shows with Peter where we would take turns and I mentioned this to met the other day. That Peterson suspiciously quiet on his website. He has not posted anything new in over a year. Really really and smart man is he. Is He okay. I'm sure he's fine. Okay I think he's fine we would. We would have heard something lewd. We've from what I remember when I know about him He lives a quiet life He splits his time between Idaho. I think in Nashville outdoors guy. Like guys like Peter who admire because of the amount of Fox. He does not give like he really doesn't give a fuck. Yeah he's like like he just wants to do is like yeah. I'll do those. I'll do sixteen gigs this year. And you the rest you can all fuck yourself you know. I'm just going to be skiing and like having coffee and then I I really admire that. I'm not that way. I really love to work. It needs to be on the state you enjoy even though realistically you could just be done so you wanted to be Like I said I love it more now than ever and I think that some of those guys do it just because they have to do a certain monarchy exent. Peter does need need any money either. But it's just keeping yourself out there you know Did you see your fifty seven or fifty six sixty six so and your oldest son is thirty right. He'll be thirty years. Yeah I mean you had these kids young young you were still. I mean you had success. You had the streak of number one hits and stuff so he ever established but at the same time. That's a young age to have kids. It's and still try to be a Tory musician. Yeah it was. It was a juggle that I I feel like all three of my sons would say that I did a pretty good job in that It's it was a weird life to have at that time because when brandon my oldest was born. Who's born in nineteen ninety? You right at the end of the the big tour ever did at least Alma ever had and and then I was like gearing up for the third album which which was very intense in terms of like I. You know I've got to come back. And and we had great success with that record too but it but it was this weird thing of like living in the studio but also having having a baby at home and and wanting to. I didn't want to be Uncle Daddy. You know I wanted to be a real presence in all and I ended up being that you know. I think I juggle juggle pretty well so I I didn't sleep at all because I wanted to be up to take him to. When they started going to school I would be up in the morning? I'll take him to school and then I'd be in the studio all all day and they would wander down to the studio. I had built a studio in my house in Chicago at the time and they would wander down after school and check out what was going on and now they're all musicians now. They're they're all. was that right yeah. They're all singer. Songwriter Musician Brandon. Sings on your most. Recent helped write the current album over the last one. He Sang Sung on a couple of them. But the new album My Middle Son Lucas He's not singing. He Co wrote two songs with me. Produced three wow. He's a HE'S A. They're all amazingly talented. But Lucas is that he's he and I are more aligned musically My youngest son Jesse's just turned twenty. Six six is a total Rakai. Like hard rock. He makes lamb of God. Sound like me but it's super melodic. Actually he's really talented and Amazing Guitar Player. My eldest son Brandon is look into hip hop and EDM and electronic music One of the greatest singers ever heard my life is my oldest son. Even his two younger brothers would say Brennan's a motherfucker but he doesn't really sing that much he's a more. Dj -ING in producer. And stuff like that. But Lucas and I started and we wrote together for this album and I'm just such a fan of what he does. You can imagine how how happy and proud route. I am and of course that I get to work with them and he's a man. You're dudes we there. My three favorite drinking buddies. You spend a lot of time with them then. Yeah that UH yeah we hang out all the time. We're really great friends. Do they live here. They all live here in fact my I'm GonNa Right from here. I'm going to go have coffee with Lucas He lives five minutes from here. Jesse lives in studio city and brand. Losing van is other all. They're all right here and we you know they. We live in Malibu.

She's there pal. How you know So it's syrupy sweet. Good Yeah Right now what you stayed in Chicago as long as you did like to raise the kids. Yeah that was a big part of it and then once that back or did you always have a place here as well. No no we we left. La To raise the kids in Chicago. in Lake Bluff. If you can call that northerns northern suburb. Yeah Yeah and I'm glad we did. I think they're glad that we did. But then at a certain point even day started to realized that they were living in a bubble. They were living in this. Like you know idyllic I called it may bury the the town we lose so small But forty eighty minutes later. You're in Chicago I I wouldn't have done it differently. I grew up in highland park not too far from where I raised my kids and now even I feel like I have no connection Chicago. Isn't that weird. I kind of feel the same way like I feel like a California boy. Yeah I we really feel like a California guy like when I go back to Chicago idol. How the fuck did I live here? It's weird right. Yeah there are a lot of a lot of things about the living Chicago that I hated and could never do again There are things about it that are great. Obviously great city in the ways that it's great but I I really feel like this is my home. I one of my friends are here. My family my dad and brother is still.

So get your finances. Don't screw this up Richard Marx's here he's taken time away like I said from fighting with the mega guys on twitter And then you're doing something you when Richard Rick Rick Springfield do some stuff together right. I was telling these guys before and if I'm not mistaken he just is something for Australia where people donated X.. Amount of money. You would do something special for them beyond. Are you still doing that well. It started with Because I've been to Australia about fifteen or sixteen times now and I. It's really sort of like a second in home to me. I've spent so much time there. Net just touring but I've actually hung out there for PR- pretty good chunks of time. I love the people there. I'm just I have a great affection for that country and seeing the devastation has just been heartbreaking you know and so I I don't know if you saw it on twitter there was this Model well who was for a donation of ten dollars or twenty dollars. Whatever it was she would send them nude selfies? She's a nude model and and she raised like a shit ton of money. Really and I thought it was brilliant. I thought it was awesome and so I just picks so. Yeah exactly well. I don't do comedy so so my idea was to I went on instagram and So anybody that donate one hundred dollars donated. I did it for like five or six days. Anybody that donated one hundred dollars or more would send a picture of their receipt and I would send them through instant message. Just thank you video greeting you know by name. Hey Karen thank you so much Blah Blah Blah Blah and we raised about twenty rant. That's great yeah. It was awesome and in the middle of that Rick Springfield and I've been friends forever and we we have to work together quite a bit over the last couple of years and He thought it was awesome. Awesome and he's Australia and he's he's originally from Australia so he came over to my. I said I got another idea. Come over to my house and for five hundred dollars or more. We'll send people a video that we made of us doing Beatles Song All my loving in my living room so my wife filmed it on my phone and it's actually really really pretty cool and so that was another five grand six grand something like that so then his ideas. We're GONNA do a thing. Stage it tomorrow This election Alexa lie last Thursday. So we're doing this thing which stage it is A. It's a lot of young sort of struggling singer. SONGWRITERS writers do it and they get the. They're on. They can do it from their laptop and just an Acoustic Guitar Piano whatever and you perform for however long and you get donations and it it. Some musicians make some money from that you know but I've also seen some established artists use it for charity. So that's what ricks idea was. So he and I are are GonNa just spend like an hour or two in each other. Saw What we do when we perform live so when you guys do what. It's the The Richard and Rick Show you guys call it the Dick Square tour okay eh claim. You don't do comedy. Hey speaking what. I'm going to challenge you on that you. Two things have happened in social media in the past few months That have made me laugh. One was amy me Sedaris. Posted the photo. Did you see this photo of something. SORTA grocery store and Said said And the post was I now have a new way to leave a room and it was. The product was stay fresh cheese cheese bags Stay fresh cheese bag laugh about that every day. And then something you said makes me laugh after almost every day About in two thousand twenty you have a new way. You're gonNA answer the phone. Do you remember what it was. Oh yeah go go for Dick over those two things exhibit like running everywhere. He goes to yes so so rick and I started doing these shows together and And so we would come together and then I would do a sad of an hour and then he would do us admiral and then we close together so when it was my turn to be up I essentially I I would say welcome to the Dick Square to earn and then I would say and you know this is just me but when there are two Dixon involved I always want to be the first Dick. Yes that's just me right. I want to be the second day Yeah he's a great guy and I think you started to ask me questions you kind kind of answered it. About how that format is. You're not out there at the same time together but when you do the right. Essentially it's two separate shows. What what about when you do this stuff with I'm going to say match and that's wrong scandal mess scandal. That's totally different. Matt Scandal is the lead singer of vertical horizon. And he's Mike like my brother and So we started doing shows years ago. just we call ourselves duo and it was a similar kind of like when Rick and I are on stage together gather. It's a similar thing. We do one of my songs together. We WanNa hit songs together at but with me and and Matt it's an it's the whole show is we take turns so we opened with one of my songs songs and he plays and sings harmony and then we do. Vertical Horizon Song. I sing and play. I'm placing harmony and I'm just such a huge huge fan. One of Matt's work and I was a big vertical horizon fan before I met him But he and then we ended up writing a ton of songs together and had great success to go. We haven't done that duo sean. A long time but so so what we're looking to do this year. Actually is touring so much. I'm leaving a week but I'm going to do a tour later in the fall where I think it'll be that Matt will come an open acoustically and play in the band with me. That'll be really early fun. You'll have to have like horizon as well. I did a thing for each one. Years ago. Called the The list And Matt was the home of the episodes And if anybody because we have guitar good yeah anybody. Listening is puzzled. Matt.
Are the Democrats ready for Bernie Sanders to get the 2020 presidential nomination?
"The news in the Senate well is that the Democrats are on repeat repeat repeat so we're going to move past that waiting for Mr step alone Mister Sekulow and the team from the White House to win our attention with succinct remarks about the foolishness of this whole exercise that is draining the nation's attention at the same time it is slowing the business at hand of reelecting the president of the United States I don't want to go to something that's even more surprising the election cycle to me yesterday as I approached caring for the show the CNN poll national Posada showing that Bernie Sanders had gone in the lead over Joe Biden the national Paul and then I today was in correspondence with our colleague John fund of the National Review online and he sent me a granite state poll from New Hampshire Bernie Sanders is going to lead by twelve points in New Hampshire and then I saw the Iowa poll of these last days showing the Bernie Sanders was also outpacing Joe Biden and Liz before in Iowa the thinking is that Bernie Sanders is drawing from the disappointing Elizabeth Warren supporters but this is the question to you is the best are the Democrats really ready really ready for Bernie Sanders at the top of their nomination process are they ready to deal with what he represents good evening to you ASAP good evening John I put it another way that they're ready to sabotage him and they're doing so right now how is the the the the halt Mike incident with between Bernie and Elizabeth Warren at the CNN debate took several days facts the B. leaks tool to be used in the media what what what was the pulley that what what was the accidental pools for several days and then you have the long interview with Hillary Clinton where she goes off to him and this falling on top of the private discussion the the heart to credit discussion in which we're supposed to believe that an up and socialist the honeymoon in the Soviet Union is Bernie Saunders did flat out told Elizabeth Warren the woman combi to present United States what he knew full well he'd probably be running against of the the Democrat establishment on it's clear in the in the last few days has set its sights on Bernie Saunders three years ago it was done with super delegates it was done with the D. and the using every tool in the book to rob him of the nomination I'm not saying this out of any sympathy to them on reconstituted socialist we're talking about here but he he is not part of the the classic Democrat establishment and that's why the knives already out the the the odds of March is occurring as we see it with regard to Bernie Saunders because the Democrat establishment cannot abide the thought that this man could end up at the top of the ticket history says that a stop fill in the blank movement always results in that person getting a hand getting the nomination right now the anybody but fill in the blank Bernie MO is probably contributing to those numbers that I gave you in the polling is gaining attention in addition to the fact Elizabeth Warren is fading so let us entertain the unimaginable is the trump campaign ready to run against Bernie Sanders the populist is is there is there any stone we need to turn over and look at closely before we enter into that fantastic dual I was also the reason I've been with my colleagues in California will places but two thousand the conservative patriots came to the event it was Dennis Prager myself mark to be in and one of the questions from the audience was which one of the candidates are you worried about which one of the candidates on the left a gives you you know most sleepless nights when it comes to a a competition with food with the incumbent and mark was lost the question that is with us the question and I said it doesn't matter modern politics is about celebrity it's about charisma individuals like Bloomberg Macy's you can purchase it but we know that you cannot buy love all popularity but John it really I'm I'm completely sincere about this it doesn't matter who they choose even if Oprah runs our fifth absurd conspiracy theory that Michelle Obama the love it's it's crazy job why because of the the economic results that is your pot full when you create we've added eleven trillion dollars to the US economy with when the stock market you can't keep up with the breaking records on the stock market and when you see the unemployment figures the likes of which we haven't seen since nineteen sixty nine it really means that it doesn't matter who gets the nomination just on pocket books to load Donald Trump should all other things being equal stroll back into the White House and yet Sam what we see in the polling is that Bernie Sanders is going to do very well in the first two votes that the Iowa caucus in New Hampshire we have reason to believe he'll do well in Nevada as well just reason to believe I haven't seen any recent polls bodies it is leading nationally in some fashion what are the Democrats who support Bernie Sanders telling us that they don't care about the White House that they don't care about the party that they don't care about down ticket is that what they say what what the Democrats and I'm trying to think yeah I'm trying to do what we were supposed to do is have you were trained in military intelligence you trying to get into the mind of the follow but at least as a coach out of the Cold War the pho was rational drawn when we collected the intelligence and read the read the the the the publications all of all of the enemy we could extrapolate to some kind of rational objective in the in the application of ways and means to that executive but with when we're talking about individuals who truly believe that after forty countries for their countries have tried socialism since the manifesto was written by Karl Marx and Frederick Engels and every single one of those countries has failed I I have no rational explanation for what they see it's it's really indoctrination from the nineteen seventies on was that they always have you and I will watch this story I mean that's our job will watch this story over the next a number of weeks to the February third what is it is less than two weeks to remember third will watch a story and see whether it is this suicide watch for the Democratic Party or is there some scheme here that so clever it's like the ability to cheat at monopoly you can't catch them have it all right we'll see
The Story of Food Fights
"The day. There was a guy named soupy sales like so many before him the three stooges Harpo Marx Charlie Chaplin soupy was known for sight. gags one particular gag. Getting Pie in the face was his trademark mark. He said he's been hit by a pie or thrown apply twenty thousand times in his career. It's a joke almost as old as comedy itself and it never fails to get laugh. So how do you beat classic you amplify it make it explode. Yes ladies and germs. I'm talking about a food. Fight in Nineteen seventy-four Bell Brooke started a fight in blazing saddles that began in the studio commissary spilled onto a movie set and made its way out onto the streets of Los US Angeles in nineteen seventy eight. The John Belushi who fired the shot that started one of the best known food fights ever filmed. Today we examine Zaman food fights where to go. If you WANNA be part of one how you can stage your own and what. The best foods are for creating your own masterpiece at home. The idea food fight isn't hard to grasp. Is people throwing food at one another for fun. It's fun because it's so socially wrong. And it makes the best. These types of food food fights are fun but they don't always turn out the way you planned for instance. Ten San Antonio high school students were arrested after starting a fight in the school cafeteria because there is some nine hundred students in the cafeteria at the time and most of them are trying to get out. The students were charged with inciting a riot in two thousand sixteen gene. Another high school prank took place at Monarch High School in Coconut Creek Florida. The day began normally enough students using superglued seal lockers classroom doors then. Lunchtime came around the trumpet. Blue and students began to hurl as you could imagine. It took a lot of time and money to clean up leading one football player to say. I hope that doesn't affect our football program because we work hard to get our new stuff like New Jersey's and stuff like that how precious but what if you want to be part of a food fight in stay outside the prison cafeteria. Have I got some places for you. Probably the most famous one is law. Toma Tina held each year and billion Spain. It's here that friends. Neighbors tourist pitched tomatoes at each other. It happens in late August and about one hundred metric tons of tomatoes. Go flying for about an hour. I'll put a video link to it in the show notes. Moving up the road to Italy. You'll you'll find the battle of oranges. It began after a woman killed a ruler. WHO said he had the right to sleep with any bride on her wedding night? These days that Murderous Act Act is celebrated by soldiers in period costumes riding through the streets and chariots with people hurling oranges at him as a symbol of the people rising up against unjust rulers. I it's messy and fun with a hint of citrus. Charlie Chaplin inspired the World Custard Pie Championship in Cox Heath Britain teams of five work work against one another to land pie strategically on their opponents. A pie to the face gets the most points in reality. The pies are not made custard just flour power and water mandatory springs Colorado hosts a fruitcake tossing contest. It's designed to get rid of all those edible fruit cake to get. During the holidays. There are two classes one for two pound cakes and another four pound cakes and there are the automated divisions that include catapults and slingshots and As you would expect there are great throwing fights along with lots of other varieties. You could do some research it easily come up with more however if you prefer to. Diy Your own food nick. I've got some helpful hints. I attacked from the rear. If you're staging your own fight be sure to think about cleanup I because the whole point of this is to make commits if it's outdoors. Make sure there's a garden hose around before any one goes into the house. This is made even easier if you have a nude food fight. One in group of Pranksters plan their fight in a public park just before a major thunderstorm. They also had a friend with a pickup truck so they could ride in the bed. After the fight it has also been recommended to Rub Petroleum Jelly. All over your body before the fight to keep smells and colors from getting into your skin again. If you plan a new food fight right this can add another fund dimension. Apparently food fights are popular for children's birthday parties the kids can be divided into teams that use a progressive list of ingredients ingredients to vanquish their foes. One suggestion was to start with water then progressed to flower. Add a little butter some baking powder and you're ready to make biscuits as is an after battle tree. So what are you going to let everyone toss a balloon filled with fruit juice. Cookies with applesauce beings popcorn mashed potatoes. Pasta Pasta and marshmallows are all good choices. Some of those are good for spearing. So you can add insult to injury so now when it comes to food fights your smart Cookie

"Okay so you support i mean of course marks in his in that quote that i just read from him said that society will control the means of production but society doesn't really control things who ends up controlling things is the fuck and state and so if you're advocating for the state taking more power the state controlling the means of production the state abolishing private property all of that shit right that same mechanism that is the state is acting in a way it's what's doing all of the terrible things the state is what's taking people's you know wealth away from them the state is what's going into the farms and russia and fucking stealing what they deemed any excess crops from people leaving people to fucking starved to death they're collectivized farms as they call it everything that's happening is happening through the mechanism that you support whereas us on the other hand we're supporting the free market and private property and everything we complain about is coming from the state which is the mechanism that we oppose so when is at here and complain about the wars or complain about the police state or complain about taxation or regulation or any of these other things it's all what we're against it's all what's what's violating private property rights so really we have a pretty solid consistent argument and they've got to argue in circles about how this wasn't real marxism but it's goddamn and insane it's fucking insane that you would have anybody you know that anybody in two thousand eighteen after this experiment's been run so many times would still be even attempting to defend karl marx just goddamn bananas.

"Okay here's karl marx understanding of economics okay the quote from karl marx for as soon as the distribution of labor comes into being each man has a particular exclusive sphere of activity which is forced upon him and from which he cannot escape he is a hunter a fisherman a herdsman or a critical critic and must remain so if he does not want to lose his means of livelihood while in communist society where nobody has won exclusive sphere of activity but each can become accomplished in any branch she wishes society regulates the general production and thus makes it possible for me to do one thing today and another thing tomorrow to hunt in the morning fish in the afternoon rear cattle in the evening criticize after dinner just as i have a mind without ever becoming a hunter fisherman herdsmen or critic so that probably sounds nice if you're ten right well why should i have to be either a hunter or a fisherman why can't i be hunter one day a fisherman the next day and then maybe i could drive a fire truck and the next day i could be a dinosaur i mean what's wrong but shouldn't like even folk in ten year old start to see what the problem with that is it's like yeah no in a lazy fair capitalist system you actually can do that but you're not going to be as economically productive because in the division of labor people master different fields so if you're starting as one hundred tomorrow and you've never fucking hunted you're probably not going to produce as much whereas if you do that every day and you develop expertise in it you're probably be better at that but this is this is the marxist thought on economics it's like but wouldn't it be nicer this way i don't know.

"And just for another example we have things now that are made by machines i guess they would have to be values right because there was no human labor attached to those things so this is just it's a completely flawed way of looking at at economics and it is the underpinning of marx's entire philosophy it's the underpinning of his entire economic worldview because if you look at things that like if you if you look at the idea that labor is what creates value right then it becomes very easy to look at it and say oh wait a minute the boss is exploiting all of these people because they are creating all the value with their labour right they're creating all of the value with their labor and he's making a prophet so in other words he's not giving them all of their value for their labor he's keeping a bunch of their labor but it's there fucking labor labor does not create value if you realize that the whole thing starts to fall apart labor doesn't create value it's like look why would i need it employer then if my labor creates the value i've got all the i've got my labor right here i can start working is the problem is i don't have anything to create any value up anything of value i can just start working punching walls and running in place it doesn't create anything of any value now if somebody else is willing to invest in a factory and they'll hire me at the factory because i go into the factory and i have all the equipment the means of production as marx would refer to them now that i have those can create something of value and this is where the value comes from because we know we're anticipating what people are going to want now the other thing that's interesting about this that the austrian economists really figured out is that if.
