"It's here and now Many states are moving to restrict what LGBTQ people can do in sports and education in healthcare But many transgender people already feel poorly served by mainstream medicine Even in relatively liberal states A number of providers in western Massachusetts which has a large LGBTQ community is starting to focus on that population And one new clinic serves almost exclusively trans patients New England public media is Karen Brown reports Nouri sherif told their doctors for years they didn't want kids and the providers usually dismissed it as the fleeting belief of a young person It was like just wait honey kind of thing Like you'll change your mind I'm like no I don't I'm pretty sure I won't But when Sharif had their first appointment at the clinic trans health via Zoom the provider a trans man didn't question that decision at all and even went a step further He was the one that was like do you ever think he would pursue a hysterectomy Sharif is 29 and trans non binary which means they don't identify as exclusively male or female They were assigned female at birth and already take testosterone Sharif figured took a provider with a real understanding of gender issues to suggest removing their uterus That sort of sensitivity is why trans health opened in Northampton a year ago in May 2021 as a clinic for transgender patients It was created and initially funded by a western Massachusetts philanthropist One of his first hires was Dallas as trans health CEO who helped survey the local community There are a lot of folks who said they had a teach their provider how to provide gender for me care and they should be the ones teaching you In 2016 Dakar herself transitioned to identify as female At the time she was working as a psychiatric nurse As she runs the business she says she draws on some of her own challenges getting healthcare including constantly having to correct the gender on her medical record The data shows that if you are trans you're more likely to be discriminated in healthcare setting And we know that if you get discriminated you're much less likely to show up to that healthcare visit again or to really engaging your healthcare at all She says the clinic offers non judgmental care The exam rooms include rainbow flags and other art soft lighting We really wanted to make this a space that didn't feel sterile It didn't feel like an exam room There's so much trauma that's been perpetuated in medical systems We wanted to make this feel.
Joe Biden; The Most Corrupt President in American History
"Promo code prager. Thank you, Dennis, and it's always a privilege. It never gets old, and it's never unappreciated. Dennis is unique, and there's no one else I'd rather fill in for. Many years ago, actually this house started many years ago Dennis said to me, you know, those are pretty big shoes for you to fill in for. Me, meaning his size. What does that Sean a size 12 size 13? What is this where? I don't even know. But he didn't mean his shoes were so big, right, he meant just, well, maybe he did because he told me I thought 12 or 13, I may be totally wrong. We've got to find that out. But big shoes they are because no one in the media is quite like him, including offering the inside he does in so many issues. So I just try to give you my perspective on life and issues and maybe one of these days my own podcast. You know, with all the teaching and everything else I do, it's been hard to get it going, but we will at some point. In this first hour I talked about whether we need a new Declaration of Independence to take back our country from the left. In this hour I want to talk about the specific charges against the king, because I said, right, the founders revolted rebelled against the king of England. As they seek to control our lives and make us into their left wing utopia. That's what they're doing. But if this is important, if you understand their ultimate goal, they're specific policy disasters, make more sense. You think they failed because they don't work. But they think they succeeded because they've created chaos and disorder. Just as with the policies of the king of England, so many years ago. But of course, Joe Biden is no king. He doesn't have a set of principles and he never did. Actually has one set of principle. That's the grow his principle. If you don't mind the pun. He might be the most corrupt president we've ever had. In any case, he's actually more of a placeholder for the left than anything else. And Kamala Harris, my God. Is she over her head? She must have always want to power to make up for her insecurities, of which there must be many. That's my guess. I'm no psychologist. Sean, do you remember the Peter principal? He's looking at me funny. He's just doesn't look that way. Of course. A quizzical look. It was the Peter principal said that you're doing your job well and then they promote you to the higher job and that's where you fail because you were very good at what you did before, but you're not so good in a promoted role. In my other field as a teacher, you wouldn't believe how many bad a system principles and principles there are. They might have been very good teachers. That's kind of what the Peter principal was. But she was an awful senator if you remember that. And an awful attorney general before that. I think Dennis even debated her once. But yes, you know what she was? A good friend of former speaker of the California assembly, Willie Brown. Actually, I don't know if she was a good friend, Willie Brown. You'd have to ask Willie Brown, right? We don't even know if she was Sean, why are your eyes going like cross eyed? You're not saying anything. Neither am I. But we never checked lily Brown about that. It's hard to believe, though, that these are the highest office holders in our country. They're an embarrassment to our country. But again, they're clearly being controlled by the left. Whether it's Obama, that's my guess, is people or other leftists. Do you remember the event weeks ago where Obama came back? I guess for the first time to visit The White House. And he comes back and everybody's around him and he's up mister terrific. And Joe Biden wandered around looking for someone to say hello to hip, just to say, now that was pathetic to watch. I almost felt sorry for him as bad as he is as corrupt as he is. But of course you have to ask this question. Why does Biden's wife and I kind of hinted at it in the first hour, she must be so obsessed with power to have ever cared about protecting her husband's dignity. What about his dignity? You can say, well, if your mean, you say you'd never had any. But in fact, that defines all of them seeking power to make up for their shortcomings as people. That's what I guess. They seek power to define themselves, especially power over other people. That's my best guess. Let me know what you think. One 8 prager 7 7 6. And it includes people on our side, too. Like Mitt Romney, if I had a guess, if you remember his father didn't do well running for president, I forgot the incident that happened on not going to say he cried or something that would have been, that was Mike dukakis, I think, of Massachusetts, but there was something, and all of a sudden he failed miserably in his quest for the presidency. So my guess is Mitt Romney's avenging for his father's undignified loss of the presidency. But, you know, I've apologized. Many times for being a delegate for it. He fooled me too for a while. But Dennis said he met with him and he didn't care about principles. Yeah, that makes sense. And Liz Cheney. Oh my God. Trying to preserve, I guess her father's legacy, whatever that was. If anything, she's tarnished what, with many of her pronouncements, she's tarnished what people thought about her dad, Dick Cheney. I suspect that all these people have deep personal problems, and I never feel that they care what is best first for our country. That they care best first, what's best for them. But they are part of the leftist cabal, whether they know it or not. What did the Russians call them useful idiots? So back to the charges. We had charges against the king and I mentioned in the first hour that's what the Declaration of Independence was about. So what are our charges begin with against this would be president. The stealing of the presidency. They never accepted Trump's victory, and they were willing to stop at nothing to make sure he lost. Including, as you know, the Russian hoax, what, two years impeachments, and the banning from social media. And now they have lawsuits against him and other enemies. Anybody who had anything to do with them. These people have no moral guard rails, except to win at all costs. That's it. And I said in the first hour, they're likely 20 anomalies over 20 that had to happen for Trump to lose. But they did win and Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are in office because of blatant fraud. As the movie 2000 mules demonstrates pretty well itself. So, mister king Biden, our first charge you never should have been declared king because you ascended to the throne illegally. How many of you, you can call me one of the prager 7 6 7 7 6? How many of you listeners like me still cringe when they call on President Biden? I still have trouble with that. It's like calling the person who stole your house, the homeowner. And to add insult to injury, the king had his Justice Department, as you know, throw innocent people into jail, summoned to solitary confinement, as I mentioned, because of January 6th, and they call it an insurrection. I love that. That was an insurrection. I don't think so. Riff raff and all kinds of people maybe, but insurrection, I don't think so. Of course, your edicts at the very beginning like ending our pipelines and drilling the ending of drilling for fossil fuels and discouraging just the scourge leases, just the other week I think it was. But it's part of your plan, see, that's what I said. You got to understand what they're up to. That's their plan to destroy capitalism and markets that we're working here. To this day, even in light of high gas prices, you continue this policy as part of the Green New Deal. And that's going to help destroy our country. So what do they do? They printed a lot of money to assuage the peasants doing my analogy with the king with your trillions of dollars in giveaways. It's a way to make them more dependent on your government. When you make people give them money then they start to depend on the government. It makes me think of a story when I first started teaching. I think it was a fourth grade kid. He's running around the school building wildly. It wasn't my student. And I finally caught up to him. I said, you know, what are you going to do with this? What are you going to do with your life? In fourth grade, he said to me, I'll go on welfare. His family must have been on welfare. He already knew that term. That was his dream, I guess, or that's what he had hoped. So that's what you do with the printing and money. And as you know, with inflation at a control, it won't be long before your Marie Antoinette, Kamala Harris, says let them eat cake. Sean, you do remember Marie Antoinette? In history, if nothing else, Dennis did not debate Marie Antoinette. You don't have to look that up. Debate between Dennis Murray. But of course, I'm confused in two different revolutions. But a revolution we have on the streets through your defunding of the police, you're just less department allowing the left to right and commit mayhem to scare, get this now, the masses into needing your protection. That's what's going on. And of course, we know that the DA's all across this country funded by George Soros of letting them out. I read a story the other day. They can't get police in many cities. Who would want to be a policeman these days? You lock sum it up. They're out in jail before you could even say boo. And just like Putin protesting his liberation of Nazis in the Ukraine, that was a justification. You come up with this phony white supremacy, as the number one problem in our country, and the reason for the crackdown of our civil liberties. I can see all these juxtapositions with what you're doing and with communism and dictatorship. A long, of course, with charges about America being a white supremacist country because you use race baiting at every chance because you have nothing else.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene on Her Ridiculous Court Case
"I'm back with Marjorie Taylor Greene and we were talking about Ukraine and of course we expect zelensky to be Ukraine first. Of course, that's his country, but weirdly we are surprised when people in America are America first. Let's pivot a little bit to the court case that you found yourself. And I mean, absolutely bizarre situation in which it seems like there was an attempt to prevent you running for reelection. I mean, you got was it activist groups? Who is behind this effort to try to block you from running again? For asking about that, this group is called free speech for the people, but they don't believe in free speech because they were trying to rip my name off the ballot silence the speech of voters in my district and not allow them to be able to reelect me and send me back to Congress. This is a group that operates on dark money. They receive their donations from other 5 O ones and foundations. So you can't see who is really donating to them. And they have a few donations that are public, but most for the most part, you only see groups and foundations that donate to them. These people are a group of attorneys from New York and Massachusetts. They have decided to try to attack our elections, especially our elections in Georgia by filing these candidacy qualification challenges, claiming that by the Fourteenth Amendment Fourteenth Amendment, section three that I supposedly waged an insurrection against the United States, which I absolutely did not. I objected to vote against Joe Biden's fraudulent Electoral College votes, dinesh, and I would probably do it again today, and I would proudly do it again tomorrow. And I'm so thankful for your movie 2000 mules because that exposes why I voted to object.

Supreme Court Rules Against Boston in Christian Flag Case
"Overshadowed by this was the Supreme Court ruling yesterday that the city of Boston, Massachusetts, violated the constitution by refusing to fly a local organization's Christian flag in front of city hall, though it had flown other groups flags. This is a tremendous win for religious liberty in America. Justice Stephen Breyer, this was unanimous. This was 9 to zero. Stephen Breyer said we conclude that Boston's flag raising program does not express government speech as a result the city's refusal to let the group fly their flag based on its religious viewpoint violated the free speech clause of the First Amendment. How about that? A constitutional ruling by the Supreme Court? Well, that's what overturning roe V wade would be because it's never been constitutional.

Democrats Gerrymander Then Cry 'Voter Suppression' When GOP Does It
"I want to talk about Jerry Mandarin and about the profound and almost comical hypocrisy of the Democrats and of the left. About gerrymandering. Basically, that position comes down to when we do it, it's fantastic. And when anyone else does it, when the Republicans do it, it's against democracy. It's a form of voter suppression. It's horrible. It can't be allowed. And the straight faced way in which the Democrats hold to this position. This is really what is a site to behold. Now, admittedly, gerrymandering is a kind of an approach, a process that goes to the very early days of the republic. In 1812, elbridge Jerry, one of the founding fathers, by the way, a former vice president, former governor of Massachusetts, he sort of signed off on this we are district, he was a Democrat, and he was trying to benefit the Democratic Party. And the Democrats drew this very weird snake like district that resembled a salamander. In fact, that's where we get the name gerrymander. It's elbridge Jerry, plus salamander, giving you gerrymander. And so a gerrymandered district is a politically awkward district. Typically designed by the ruling party to protect and guarantee winning seats for itself. So drawing the map in a favorable way. Now, this by itself is not voter suppression. It's not voter fraud. I would say distasteful that this is done, but it is done by done by both parties. And yet when the Republicans do it, the Democrats act like this is horrific. This is something that can't be permitted. So recently, a North Carolina Supreme Court struck down some legislative districts that were drawn by the GOP in North Carolina. That would have benefited the Republican Party. And when that happened, Joe Biden comes out with, this is what he goes, he says, voters should choose that representatives, not the other way around. Acting as if a gerrymander is a subversion of democracy. And sure enough, Barack Obama calls Republican gerrymandering efforts, quote, threatening democracy, the liberal Brennan center, quote gerrymandering is deeply undemocratic.

Rankings: Which States Handled COVID the Best?
"Who handled COVID the best? Who handled the Fauci virus the best what states were the ones that were able to withstand the damage both with death, education, businesses. So there's a study out of the national bureau for economic research. And based on this article and I'm reading a little bit into this, but not too much. It seems as if they did a blended metric where they put death rates, business closures, education outputs all into one. So they didn't just do death rates. They didn't just do case rates. They didn't just do business. They put it all into one. How they weighed it, I don't know. But it seems to be a very non partisan group. It doesn't seem to be as if this is a partisan. So what the national bureau for economic research came out and said, is they ranked what states did best in response to the Fauci virus. The national bureau of economic research is an American private nonprofit research organization tied to the MIT and Harvard, the Massachusetts institute for technology and Harvard. So this is as nonpartisan as it's going to get. Okay? The state they say that did the best, despite their ridiculous politicians, but they have great people. Utah. Second best South Dakota. Remember governor Kristi Noem was just attacked from every direction for her response to the virus. Then interestingly, Vermont, which I could be an outlier, I don't know how they responded to a lot of different things. Also a very rural state. So that's something to think about. Then Montana led wonderfully by our friend and supporter of turning point USA governor gianforte, then number 5, ah. No, I'm sorry. No, number two is Nebraska. I got myself messed up. Number two is Nebraska led by governor ricketts number 5 was Kristi Noem. Sorry I was going through this too quickly. And yes, I do know the difference between Nebraska and South Dakota.

Looking at Mitt Romney's Track Record
"But that's what he's doing. He's setting himself up for a presidential run as a third party candidate. He's going to say, you know, Americans can't afford four more years of Donald Trump. And I'm a lifelong, well, I'm not a lifelong Republican, but I'm a part time Republican. Wink wink. I go back and forth, I used to be kind of a liberal Massachusetts governor. I mean, this guy think about Romney's track record. Massachusetts, Utah, he's got a big mansion in California, man gets around. I mean, he gets around now. He's got, he's got some miles on him. And the katangi Brown Jackson yes vote is fascinating to me, but I think Laura and Molly Hemingway are correct. He's getting ready to run as a spoiler because he wants to get his revenge on Donald Trump.
MIT Is Reinstating SAT and ACT Requirements for Incoming Students
"Massachusetts institute of technology, my grandfather was a Sloan fellow. So we have some family ties to MIT. They have this very controversial new announcement where they're saying, okay, we're now going to bring back the SAT and ACT requirement because the last couple of years due to the woke ism that has taken over the country. They're like, yeah, we don't need SATs and ACTs anymore. But they're bringing it back and it's very controversial at MIT. So they have this guy that they interviewed who is schmill, his name is Stuart schmill, and he is responsible for trying to implement the standards of how one gets into MIT. And so they have an entire so funny. They have an entire website dedicated at the Massachusetts institute of technology website, MIT, which is supposed to be it's one of the best engineering schools on the planet, that and Caltech. Where they have a long explanation as to why they're bringing back exams. First question, why is MIT reinstating the SAT and ACT requirement? It says, quote, this is one of my favorite lines the entire thing. Quote, we want to be confident that an applicant has academic preparation and non cognitive skills. To do well in our challenging fast paced academic environment, really, you would want that at MIT? My favorite part of this, though, is when they say, quote, our research shows that in most cases, we can not reliably predict students that will do well in MIT unless we consider standardized test results alongside grades, coursework, and other factors. And the math component of testing turns out to be the most important. Who would have thought that math would be necessary at MIT. Now, of course, the wookies, they've been trying to get rid of standardized testing for a long time. You read

Do Covid Precautions Work?
"The New York Times article says this. It says good morning. Life in red America and blue America is quite different. What about COVID caseloads? It says this, that there's a modest gap. This is The New York Times writing. Daily life in red and blue America has continued to be quite different over the past few months. It is a reflection over the partisan divide over COVID-19. So The New York Times is writing this, David leonhardt, and he goes through this article, and he admits the following quote. In the country's most liberal cities, many people are still avoiding restaurants. The number of seated diners last month was about 40% below pre-pandemic levels in New York Philadelphia Minneapolis and San Francisco and Cambridge, Massachusetts, according to open table. By contrast, Nashville Phoenix Charlotte and Austin, as well as in Oklahoma, Nebraska and New Hampshire. Residents and liberal cities like New York, Washington and San Jose are still spending significantly more time at home and less time at the office. In more conservative places, the rhythm of daily life has returned to nearly normal. So The New York Times is diving into the data here and they say quote, during the omicron wave, schools and heavily Democrat areas were more likely to close. Some classrooms require students to stay at home for extended periods of time. Mask wearing was very common in liberal areas, far more common in liberal communities than conservative ones. These are a stark difference that have created a kind of natural experiment. Did the omicron variant spread less in parts of the United States where social distancing and masking were more common, and The New York Times says the answer is surprisingly unclear. They say, quote, the number of official COVID cases has been somewhat higher in Democrat areas that masked and had lockdowns and lower in Republican areas, according to The New York Times, data. Now, The New York Times doesn't want to say this definitively, but they're shocked and they're confused. They say this is unclear. Now there's a reason why this is so important. We just locked down our civilization for two years, put vaccine mandates on people that did not need to get a vaccine against the virus that did not significantly threaten them. Lockdown our entire civilization and created $6 trillion as a result. But I'm very concerned by the lack of interest. From the people in charge have an honest diagnosis of what we just put our country through.

Author Dwight Chapin Reflects on How the US Presidency Has Changed
"We're talking to Dwight Chapin. Who's the author of the president's man, the memoirs of Nixon's trusted aid. And do I just reprise things, you're an extremely young man in your 20s when you serve Nixon in The White House and this book, you go into all of those details and the stories, but I was just asking you about current events and you were reflecting on how the presidency has changed and how Nixon obviously of an older school was willing to be less a friend of the people and to kind of it's an interesting thing. I think this has to do with the advent of the media and social media. It's very difficult for someone like a Trump, for example, to maintain that distance, that Twitter gave him immediate access. And that has an upside and a downside. Yes. Nixon's focused and thought about how do you lead? I mean, this was something he studied and let's take Vietnam for an example. With the Vietnam War, I forget the exact number, but he went on national television like 7 times, had maps had arrows. He took the public along with him. That's why when, I mean, he was elected into office in 1968. And he won an overwhelming majority. He won everything except Massachusetts and the District of Columbia. Which is hilarious 1972. You have to be clear. Mcgovern was from Massachusetts. So the idea that liberal Massachusetts with its representative, running against Nixon, was the only place besides TC. I mean, you talk about a

I didn't know that the state was going to issue a math mandate Won the state did our when desi did I was already moving in that direction because of our community and in conversation with multiple stakeholders and talking to our families so when i went to my school committee i said here is my recommendation that we universal masking and then the following week.

Brad jones Working on this issue and we kind of agreed. We didn't care how we got but we needed to move forward and we had these sixty three hundred kits that were tested or fully tested were dna tested and we wanted to make sure that we removed any loopholes or any language that the crime lab was pointing to that said that they could not test. The kids So that's yeah so. This year's bill What is the state doing to comply. So we were -quired the crime lab to to take an accounting of the kits There are a number of kits that they Continue to claim cannot be tested. There are at least one category where that is the case that the dna evidence kid is so small that it would be exhausted There's a separate process that needs to go through. The frustrating part is we haven't been able to get an accounting of how many kits fit that profile and need to be put aside They've had eight million dollars. They've spent we believe about four million of it and they've had two additional years and having come up with a plan to test the kids that can legally be tested.

This is a staggeringly complex moment to lead a state Between one hundred year pandemic our reckoning was systemic racism income inequality the issues that you laid out what comes first in terms of issue tackle. However you want to answer that. Well i think that the imperative before us and also the good news is that we can't. We should not limit ourselves to choosing one issue to work on at a time. One because we're better than that in massachusetts we we can walk and chew gum in massachusetts at the same time. We have a ton of talent here in the commonwealth theon. We you know medical talent.

Is that when we tackle one. We are often tackling another at the same time right when we tackle our transportation infrastructure and we get ambitious about building twenty-first-century infrastructure. We are also tackling in an aggressive way climate. Change right which we do. We need to be aggressive.

People are sitting a long time in traffic. And that's time that folks would much rather be at home taking care of their Aging parents helping their kids with their homework being civically active in their communities. And so those are the those issues that are going to be a first and foremost on my priority list and these are issues where again. I'm interested in tackling them at their roots. It's been too long. That beacon hill has been saying to families That we should have just nibbling around the edges is enough or the people should need to wait another year or another term for really profound change on these issues so you ask for a specific example And i'll i'll go. I'll go to economic development and economic opportunity and justice right our our wealth gap and particularly racial loss. Gap in massachusetts is one of the largest in the nation and we have folks who have been working and working their butts off. If i can say that on the radio for year network hub and not seeing race relative to inflation. Right does a huge problem for our commonwealth things. We can do to address that one. Is you know as much education isn't an issue that i'm known for him beacon hill. It is not a silver bullet but is the single biggest lever. We have from public policy standpoint. for tackling both economic inequality and injustice and economic opportunity. Right building opportunity because if we can equip young people with that strong nation in life. day they're going to be able to do the rest of the work right. They're gonna go far and we also know that. A prepared workforce is one of the things that has hamstringing our industries in our employers in massachusetts is one of the most common frustrations that i hear from employers. Is the selling me for interrupting years. Just there's so much i want to get to. What is a specific for example policy idea on an educated workforce that you're thinking about so i'll give you to write about one is that we need to follow through with discipline and with vigor. Our implementation of student opportunity act which is something that i fought for and succeeded getting into law a five year battle right to get it into line passed in twenty nineteen. But that's a seven year in process and we have to do it with discipline less. We not hit that goal.

Or are we talking about here for prisoners who were deemed dangerous essentially. Well the report says there should be a process for handling disruptive behavior and some prisoners who are documented as dangerous and in the emphasis there on documentation can be removed from the general population of the prison for a period of time but the effort should be to figure out why they're being disruptive and to try to address those issues all right. You mentioned that the top there were eleven recommendations in this report so besides eliminating restrictive housing and eliminating the du. What else was significant that you saw in that report. I think probably most important are the recommendations to improve programming and treatment The report says correctional staff of those incarcerated and those formerly incarcerated who the investigators interviewed for this report. All agree that more programming is needed in state prisons and there needs to be a focus on treatment especially for those with substance use disorders or have we heard from the.

None of the colonies in new england served as more of a warning against the growing risk of royal control than to new hampshire new hampshire drain. The eighties was still a very small colony with a little over. Two thousand colonists. However the events of the late sixteen seventies and early sixties in new hampshire would have a dramatic impact on the entirety of the england. Going back. A bit new hampshire had been embroiled in a controversy regarding a royal rule for a few years before the emergence of the dominion. the problem. was that roger mason. The descendant of the colonies original proprietor had spent much of the sixteenth seventy s fighting to increases holdings. This included an amount of land that had become disputed between new hampshire massachusetts through a court battle. The king decided that mason had an absolute right to sell the land which he owned. The problem is that will he controlled the land. The king ruled that he did not give him the right to control the government over seeing that land in sixteen. Seventy nine charles. The second made new hampshire a royal colony and said edward cranfield over as the governor. This was a disaster for massachusetts by the time that cranfield was in the colony massachusetts expansion. Meant that the colonies had made their way into mason's territory. Massachusetts was not interested in the land itself but felt they had a right to enforce the governance over the colonists in the region the kings ruling however was that mason control the land but hill no rights over the government which meant that masons territory were massachusetts colonists. Had settled was now directly under royal rule with cranfield at its head. No cranfield was not a popular figure anywhere in new england. During his time in new hampshire he clashed with just about everybody there over. pretty much. Everything the new hampshire colonists hated him so much that at one point they ended up violently revolting. Cranfield survived the revolt and sent the ringleader edward g-o-v to england for execution. Before you go and spend too much time. Worrying about mr gov. It should be noted that he will survive this entire ordeal. He will be pardoned and he will eventually returned to new hampshire. Ask for cranfield.

They often found the new laws repugnant and we're shocked by their lack of influence over colonial affairs. It had quickly become abundantly obvious to all involved that the governor's council was not a representative assembly but was rather just there to make suggestions. If at the suggestion he would roll with the idea if he didn't he wouldn't at the end of the day. It was clear that the power in the colony rested almost entirely with him. When addressing the dominion of new england. It can at times be difficult to remember that we are not dealing with something that took place exclusively massachusetts. The dominion was a conglomeration of colonies and it extended throughout the entirety of new england. And beyond this week therefore the goal is going to be getting a better idea of what this means for everybody else. Inside of the dominion we will examine how the other colonies dealt with the arrival of andraos and the reaction to policies as we are going to see today. Despite the fact that massachusetts really is the center of the dominion world. There were a lot of colonists who were going to be part of the dominion and not live within massachusetts and they are going to have a lot of different opinions about everything that is happening for nearly all of new england. The birth of the demand meant the end of what had largely been decades of nearly independent rule. However will that on the surface wasn't going to make anybody all that happy. The demand also marked an important opportunity since its founding massachusetts had dominated the region that dominion offered the other colonies and opportunity to escape the orbit of boston.

They don't they're not organized they're not. They're just trying to figure out where they gonNA eat their next sandwich you know what I'm saying. So. It's difficult.

Go spend time on the government. Most people don't. It's it's why covid although.

Baker is spending money against you gots and back packet Democrats. NASA cheese it's crazy. Yeah he's Republican so. and. These are Republican donors like some of the wealthiest earners of Massachusetts and their spending money. In these you know races in Democratic primaries and let me tell you I have no doubt lie at the my opponent is an anti choice. Candidate has voted time and again against not only marriage equality but equal rights and he's voted over and over again for corporate tax cuts and cuts to the wealthiest earners of Massachusetts and no other state in the union except to. Others to other states in the union have cut taxes more drastically in the past ten years. The Massachusetts has to the tune of over four billion dollars of our state budget annually that's money that could be for our schools which we know we've been defunding. That's money that we could be using it to replace the water pipes that are were a hundred years old and leaching lead into our water. I mean our communities are suffering. We need those funds for our communities. Especially now I mean this nineteen has has wiped other states and and president trump has said he's not giving them any money. He's not giving the cities or towns with the states any money so This is this is a really a crisis point. People are hurting and I'm sorry you know people need. To realize this didn't happen because Kobe Kobe was the straw that broke the camel's back. We were already very close to the tipping point.

"I WanNa see you know a real group of people who WANNA be legal get to go legal and it's smaller players they can get in they can experiment they can try stopped caregiver and then watch a licensed business. That's the next step up you know a micro grow or something like that gives people opportunity with smaller capital do themselves the hustlers out there makes legal gives them opportunity we should be gone. In me? Which I'm one of the main differences in moon. In the problem. Maine has. Evolved over the years in their big concern, how's that big candidates coming in and try to shut down honestly but main had very similar type of thing, and now they have the option against storefronts. So like Baid started out just simple caregivers and now some caregivers have store fronts too so. There's a lot of opportunity in Maine because he's been there for so long. It's been there for fifteen years growing just didn't start overnight but they the difference of Maine is they started with caregivers in later dispensary we're doing the opposite where we're stocked with dispensaries. Then allowing caregivers later you know so just the opposite really. Smaller better being differences that in Massachusetts part of why this proposal so unique is that the operations like you're saying general half to be not for profit and not just not for profit they have to be ah cost and that doesn't even include the caregivers time. So the people who are signing up for this, they're giving all their information they're doing this pro bono for the most vulnerable patients the most. Impoverished the most disabled patients in the entire state and they they are doing this basically out of the goodness of their heart main closer to a commercial caregiver model.
