You should you should not be allowed to drive. If you want that. As we are gearing up for an election here. I don't know if you've heard this or not. But 2020 is an election year. You might have missed a memo. So be understandable. It was only casually mentioned in one memo couple of weeks ago. There is that push nationwide to make everybody vote by mail. That's the key. You see. Today to Missouri and Kentucky. I think Kansas Kansas are voting in primaries. They're voting in person. We'll see. It's weird how they always say, the media says We can't possibly have an election. Without mail in voting. People are going to die, and then you see primary after primary to practice go off. Without a correlating increase in Corona virus cases. In fact, the only thing The only event That correlates with increases in Corona virus cases are the black lives matter. Protests that's it. They say, Well, you know, Memorial Day weekend is really when this all started with people going toe pools and beaches, not socially distancing. That's a lie. Remember the the lake of the Ozarks. Remember that all the lake of the Ozarks? It's an outrage Got the lake of the Ozarks splitting pool. Open up in Arkansas and people are are there without masks, and that's a problem. And then we're told that well, those 100 people swimming in a pool in Arkansas a place you've never heard of. They're responsible for the outbreak. Not Not the tens of thousands of people rioting, looting attacking people doing so because you know you've beaten somebody up and you're wearing a mask. It's It takes the wind out of you Gotta take the mask down.

Trump is losing big to Biden in voter polls

"Used to the day not to the date, but to the day we go to the polls all over the United States. Of course, there's massive mail in balloting and elect the next president of the United States. It will either be a reelection of Donald Trump or Joe Biden will be the next president of the United States. But where do things stand? Really? As we're now 90 days out from deciding who the leader of the free world will be a lot of the poles that are out there. Have Joe Biden up if you look at battleground state polls Here in Ohio. Biden is up plus 2 2.5 He's up in Michigan. He is he's up in New Hampshire. Trump is up in Texas barely up in Missouri, and Trump is up in Iowa. But apparently it is Biden, who is making hay and a lot of the states that Donald Trump won back in 2016 and needs to win for re election now, But how accurate is polling? And did we learned any lessons from 2016? That should look at polling now with somewhat of a jaundiced eye? Standing by the way in and all of that is one of the great political minds of art of our lifetime. Someone who understands the INS and the outs of elections how people get elected, what polls really mean and the taste of the voting electorate in this country. He is Dr Eric Morrow, the head of social sciences and political science professor at Tarleton State University. And Dr Morrow. How are you on this glorious Tuesday? I'm great. Can we've got some cooler weather here in Texas. So, ah, not break from the summer. He had some rain last week. So that's the best we can ask for in Texas in the summer. Well, you know, it's cool in a lot of places not bad here, but it's tartan. Or, as we say, here in Ohio, fixing the heat off politically, Let's Just get to the landscape as it exists right now, As you look at this presidential race, is it really Joe blind that has the lead and if it is, how much of a lead not necessarily and popular vote, But as you look around the landscape of the country in these battleground states, how much do we put How much fate should we put in these polls that air out right now? Well, I think it's uh It's a mixed message at this point, and I say that because we had the experience in 2016 with the Poles and a lot of polling places, especially the quality ones, learned some things and it made some adjustments. But you know we're still 90 days out, and there's a lot happening and And part of this, too, looking at each individual state. And what is the makeup of the voting? The registered voters and turnout expectations there how they're handling elections. I mean, this is this is where we're on the ground now and where the challenges are. And polling while it does give us some some glimpse, Ah, take Texas is a great example. Ah, they most the polls show that they're basically even between Trump and Biden. But ah Ah, we've got a ways to go here and one of the things that really impacts voting and the and the results of an election is tech in Texas. Not just your big metropolitan areas. We have a lot of smaller metropolitan areas. And if turnout is strong there those air Republican bases and so I still give the lead to trump on DH. Not just that they're even but I give us a little bit of a lead to him in the state right now, because we just don't know what that That result will be with turnout in those areas. Well, Trump, I think still has his base. If you look a TTE, a TTE, the various polling among Republicans, he's he's been consistently at 94 95 96 inside his own party. If you look at that what he's doing from an approval standpoint, there's some Poles, the rest missing pool, which has traditionally favored Republicans. It's it's Ah, it's it's I think has Trump right now at 50% approval, but most of them have him in. At best, a load a mid forties. It seems to me that Trump is having a really difficult time getting past his base and energizing people that might Either be fence sitters or undecideds. I don't think there are a lot of undecideds or people that he just hasn't connected with. I don't think he can do much until he gets coverted under control because To me. That's what everybody is, is consumed with whether it's from a health standpoint or an economy standpoint, he can't get covert under control. Not that I'm not saying he but we can't get Cove it under control. And because of that, I think it kind of stymies him in picking up those that are not in his base. Would you agree with that? I do. He needs a win, and he's been. It's been an uphill battle on this all along. And ah, this recently Ah, put some things out on federalism, where I think that the Trump presidency is a victim of that, especially in relation to this. Ah, pandemic on that is because of the challenges with working with states and That comes into theologian process now is that you've got some of the more challenging conditions related to the pandemic in states where without the pandemic, he would say, Well, well, Trump has that state and it wouldn't be any questions now about whether someone has a lead or not. It would be a good thing could be a very, very close race at this point, but Where it's not is that people are starting to question what's happening and how this is being addressed and just not seeing results, and that's what people want. They want. They want the economy six. They want a vaccine. They want cases to go down. They want results, and we and he really needs to see something happen. Significant. Well, there has to be something that happened significantly to get Joe Biden. Out of his basement and out on the campaign trail. And so far, there's no compelling reason for Biden to go out and do that is there and now there's not no, he can play it safe. At this point, it seems I mean, I don't know that that's the the best overall strategy. But, um, one of the things Heard recently in terms of strategy coming out of his campaign was that that they're looking at what the right moment you know when, when is it time to Ah, that it won't, uh, create additional challenges, depending on what he does or what he says. But when he can jump out there and put himself forward, even Maura's the person to say, Well, look, he's not Trump's not been able to fix any of this. Our address it in the appropriate way and and thus try to seal the deal on the election. A Sze Yu look. ATT at Joe Biden. And you hear some of the rhetoric that's been out there in the last couple of days about debates and whether there will not be debates and whether there will be. I think once you wed your way through that, I don't sense the Joe Biden can say. At the at the 11th hour. I'm not going to debate. We're not going to have any debates. I think at that point he would look weak. There will be debates this year. Don't you think I do. I think that I think that's what their strategists are looking at. Is that the point in which he inserts himself more into this? I think one of the challenges or one of the things they have to be looking at. And this is really for the Trump campaign is that In the debates and part of the previous election, so he benefited from a live audience. He was able to play to the crowd. He was able to kind of make it work for himself, both visually as well as the The effect of having a live audience. And that may not be the case this time. And so that may be a challenge for Trump. But he certainly not goingto back away from the and, in fact, Ah Biden doing that. They would certainly make that an opportunity to say that he's not willing to engage in a public forum in these difficult issues that we're facing. Former vice president obviously commits a lot of gaps there. Some who think he may have cognitive issues whether he does or he doesn't. I don't know. Nobody knows unless you're his doctor or those close to him. How much how much of a liability. Do you think A live debate would be to Biden particularly If he continues to behave like he does in some of the few public events he does. I think these extended debates with just two candidates are going to be more of a challenge. We saw him kind of moved back and forth. He was challenged in a few debates recovered and a few others and and so it's gonna be interesting to see this over an extended period of time. As to how you can engage. You know, Biden has a long career in government and with policy, and when you get him going with that, and he's in the depths of it, hey, can show his his ability to really engage with it the challenges in communicating that because as we've seen for many elections when they run the studies, people start tuning out when you get into the details of policy, and I think that's where In addition to what Biden might say that he doesn't intend to say is that when he started jumping off in the depths of discussing policy specific policy issues, people are just going, they're going to fade, and that that isn't necessarily help is well, so I don't think it is his strengths or they're just I think it's going to be. Where are we with all of these issues and what Trump Has been able to accomplish or see happen under his presidency. And then how Biden portrays himself coming into that engagement with him,

US entering 'different' phase of coronavirus outbreak

"Surpassed Britain as the country with the third highest Corona virus death toll on Friday. What happened across the United States we bring in Santonio, first news national correspondent Michael Bauer. So what did happen in the United States? We know that Dr Deborah Berke, the position overseeing the White House coronavirus response says. We entered a new phase here in this country, meaning that what we're looking at as Faras the pandemic goes is much different now than it was in March in April. That she says, is extraordinarily widespread that there because it was his belief that rural urban areas maybe someplace states and cities. Work socially distant enough from the rest of the country. This remote distance is going to keep us safe, not going to be an issue, she says. That's not happening anymore. We're in a place now where there is no corner of the country. That's safe enough from everything. So while we've been looking at Texas and Florida in Arizona and California for some time now, the Sunbelt states you're looking at over the past week period of time, the largest surge of infections happening in Alaska, Hawaii, Missouri, Montana and Oklahoma. So sort of all over the place. Some of those places way more distant from the rest of the country than others. And this is a clear indication that we're in a different level in a different phase right now, what's happening in this country. Now with that? Experts are also saying, Let's not forget we're about to possibly go back to school. We know that some colleges are going to be returning, and there's a concern that we major outbreaks in college towns, but also above and beyond that policy lab is this one group of Children's Hospital in Philadelphia that have been kind of showing models and pulling together models. They're looking at one right now that says As far as a likely spread over the next four weeks. Like who could be the next Texas who could be the next Florida? They're checking out some ominous trends that includes some really, really big cities like Baltimore in Chicago in Detroit, Philadelphia, ST Louis and Washington, Boston and New York. They're saying that they're keeping a close eye on those cities over the next four weeks because it looks like Some of these cases, air headed back those directions. Michael, are we getting a clear picture of exactly how many kids have tested positive for covert 19? It's what we're getting is because a lot of schools still haven't officially returned right. But we do know that some schools have gone back into session. And we know that at least in places like Indiana at one school district, where two kids tested positive and a teacher tested positive as well. They immediately day one shut down those squids at school district and went back to the At home learning process and doing things from a remote basis, and you're seeing those exact came some kind of situations all across the country. You're seeing them in Kentucky, you're seeing them and Utah. You're seeing them. Ah, hole across the country where kids are kind of starting to come back and then boom. There's this sort of exposure to on element of covert 19 in the classroom. My brother Isa teacher in Northern California he teaches high school students, and they just had two of their senior students test positive for covert 19 1 senior at another school in their district. And the school just for decided to shut things down until October. So my brother will be teaching from his classroom, But just on the computer to people who will be learning at home. So are we working on the honor system here? Our parents required by law to report if their child test positive. Uh, that's a great question. I don't know that they're required. I also don't know who's hiding that right now. I'm thinking that that's a good idea. I think you know the reality of the situation is school districts are asking and trying to figure out what it is that parents want to do and what the schools want to do from that point on there making decisions based upon that, But the minute you start talking about bringing a kid in who might be infected. And even though the symptoms aren't nearly as strong and kids or at least that's what the reports have been throughout what you've seen for adults and older people, they can still spread it, so they're still going to school. They can still pick it up and bring it home. And then they can spread it that way. So if you were looking to stop the spread period, it would seem likely the things they do. There is not put kids into a situation where it was worse back in March, but worse than where was back in March and trying to put them in and think that this is going to stop the spread. Meanwhile,

Supreme Court Victory, Progress for Native Americans

"One of the big rulings from this year Supreme Court term was mcgirt versus Oklahoma. The five to four decision declared a swath of the state near Tulsa to be part of the Muskogee creek nations reservation enforcing nineteenth century treaties the US made with the creek that landmark recognition of native American rights could lead to nearly half of the state being classified as Indian country but it also. Wrestled with questions of sovereignty on native American reservations. This is an issue that native American legal advocates Sarah dear who is a citizen of the Muskogee? Creek, nation has been working on for many years. We had a chance to speak with her following the decision Sarah. I'd love to hear your reflections on this decision as well as the broader impact. This could have for all native Americans. Well. Winning a treaty case in the Supreme Court. In twenty twenty is not what anybody was expecting. This case came about in a very interesting and unexpected way as a result of some folks who were prosecuted by home, and so they they were the champions for tribal sovereignty I. It's a very odd circumstance where you have perpetrators of crime on the one hand and celebrating their victory because it means so much for Indian country. So Sarah, you've worked on tribal law and issues of sovereignty for much of your career. Why is this such a pivotal issue for you and for Native Americans? The Supreme Court does not have a great track record with tribal issues and so when cases move their way through the federal system, you know from the district to the circuit to the Supreme Court. Feel like we're always playing defense like we're really struggling to get the issues of tribal tribal governments you know to be treated seriously, and so I think this victory is not just important for native people from my tribe are even if people from Oklahoma but to see a treaty be held up as the law of the land, the constitution requires is a tremendous lift for people all over the United States who care about tribal issues tell us more about the work ahead regarding this issue. Sure. Well, one of the restrictions that still remains on our jurisdiction over crimes is that we can't prosecute. Unless it's a domestic violence case. So that means that if a non native person commits a homicide or a sexual abuse case against a child, if they do those things and it's on the reservation, we have no power over them in terms of the criminal justice system. So one of my long term agenda items is to change that to just re restore tribes like any government can prosecute anybody who comes into our community and commits an act of violence. I'm currently sitting in Kansas right now if I went to Missouri and committed a crime, you know they could prosecute me. So why shouldn't it be the same tribes Sarah gear slightly another big topic in the news, of course, is the impact of the coronavirus across the world and we know that it has also hit native Americans particularly hard. Why is that and what kind of attention would you like to see around this issue? I'm. So glad you asked that I think the primary issue that we're seeing of course, the health disparities that already exist. Right. So we've been talking about how folks have a higher rate of of sort of vulnerabilities like diabetes or lung disease, those kinds of things, and so tribal nations suffer from those disparities as well I think it's also hearkens back right to smallpox in a way because tribal nations almost disappeared as a result of widespread adoption. Starting in the seventeen hundreds and even continuing into the Spanish flu era. In the early part of the twentieth century, you know very high death rates and so there's a sense that here's a sense of urgency about viruses that may not exist in other communities because we know we're barely here. In the aftermath of smallpox, and so we do take these things very seriously. I also think that tribal communities tend to be very small and and sort of. Close, and so that also puts our nation at risk in are like in some of our trouble cultures, you just don't. You don't knock go see grandma. Culturally like you go see grandma right and so that's been a cultural barrier and some of our communities towards the necessary necessity of isolation that's been a hard cultural thing to to deal with for a lot of native people. We're also at a time where we're seeing a movement across the nation focusing on several rights reforming the justice system. It seems like we're also seeing a lot more intersection -ality on issues that overlap for multiple groups here. Do you feel that native Americans are being heard in these broader conversations in this broader push for equality? I do I think that you know the black lives matter has really open doors for for many different issues although the the centering of of black bodies and police brutality certainly at the core, the discussions and the protests that we're having a really opening up a lot of conversations and those are conversations that native people have wanted to have on a national level and wanted to be able to. Take to a larger audience and I think we owe a debt of gratitude to black lives matter which is open. So many doors to talk about difficult historical issues and of course, that's our story right typical historical issues that that have really damaged tribal communities and so that opportunity has we've really benefited I think from other forms of activism and I feel very grateful for the work that they've done.

No charges against officer who fatally shot Michael Brown

"The results of a secret five month review of the Darren Wilson case. The ST Louis County prosecutor has announced there will be no charges filed against the Ferguson police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown. The question for this office was a simple one. Could we prove beyond a reasonable doubt? Then when Darren Wilson shot Michael Brown, he committed murder. Or manslaughter. Under Missouri law, this is Kevin Killeen. ST. Louis County prosecutor Wesley Bell says the evidence wasn't there. And he would have also had to prove that self defence was not a factor as Brown scuffled with Wilson trying to take the officer's gun. What I hope is that People who are watching this understand that way. Put the time We We did a thorough And detailed investigation. The last farm road, you know, But even as Bell was leaving the podium, Ferguson activist heckled him, saying it's over. He will never serve more than one term that the investigation was not good enough. Kevin Colleen Saint Louis News radio came Alexe.

The deadly shooting of Michael Brown in August 2014 led two months of unrest in Ferguson, Missouri. A grand jury declined to indict White police officer Darren Wilson for killing the black 18 year old. Almost six years later, ST Louis County Prosecutor Wesley Bell announced to reopen the case. But after a five month long investigation, he said Wilson will not be charged The question of whether we can prove a case at trial. Is different than clearing him of any and all wrongdoing.

MLB Marks The 100th Anniversary Of The Negro Leagues

"Baseball is marking the anniversary of the Negro leagues created 100 years ago. The league's showcased black baseball players players who couldn't play on the major teams because of the color of their skin. Only a few members of the leagues are alive to celebrate the centennial Michigan radios, Doug Tribute spoke to the only surviving team owner and others about the legacy of the legendary leagues. In 1920 owners of independent black baseball teams from the Midwest gathered in Kansas City, Missouri. At that meeting they created the Negro National Leagues had no idea they were making history. They didn't care about making history. Bob Kendrick heads the Negro Leagues Baseball museum there, he says. Faced with segregation, black owners and players kept pushing for organized baseball. These athletes never cried about the social injustice. They went out and did something about so you won't let me play with you and I create my own And they did today. Stars like Josh Gibson, Buck Leonard and Satchel Paige are enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame, but thousands of black and Latino players endured bigotry and racist taunts. It was Tear before the players at that time. Many Forbes owned the Detroit Stars from 1956 to 1958. She lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan, that players try of them. They had nowhere to stay because of the discrimination, so they slept in the buses. And they couldn't go in places to eat so one person would go to the back door. When get food for all the players. Pedro Sierra pitched in the Negro leagues for several seasons in the 19 fifties. He grew up in Cuba and says it was tough to adjust to segregation and racism he saw in the US It wasn't easy to see all the problem with the raise. I know all about it, herb artist. But I hadn't experienced today. Sierra lives in New Jersey In 1954 he signed with the Indianapolis clowns at the age of 16. His salary was less than 5% of what white players were earning dollars a month a month, $100 a month. And I look back and say, Oh my God. Jackie Robinson played briefly in the Negro leagues. Then, in 1947 he broke baseball's color barrier with the Brooklyn Dodgers in Cleveland, Larry Doby became the first black player in the American League. Coming seasons brought many more signings. But many Forbes sympathizes with the many athletes who were good enough to play in the major leagues, but never got a shot. Unfortunately, some of the good players by the time the time Came. They were too old to play. The last league folded in the early 19 sixties, the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum estimates there are about 100 former players still alive. Forbes is 88 worries about being one of the last left to tell the story. And I just want a if I'm worthy of represent and speaking about the Negro League because When I got involved, things was easier for me. Then it wass father one before me. Many Forbes will keep sharing her stories with younger generations and others will to Major League Baseball has a day to honor the league's set for next month. The museum has pushed back its year long celebration of the centennial to next year and renamed it Negro Leagues. 101

"Should the feds be able to take action? To protect federal property. Should the president be able to send federal agents to protect federal property in cities like Portland, Oregon, For instance, or other places Absolutely 100%. The president should be able to use federal forces. Ah law enforcement to protect the assets of the United States of America. There is, though, that about it. Late Last week we had the inspector general for the DOJ announced that its office had opened up an investigation into the use of force by federal law enforcement agents against the protesters, some of them peaceful. Many not in Portland in Washington, D. C and the probe was launched in response to a referral from the US attorney general in Oregon, Billy Williams. Each side came to the hearing. Armed with an agenda. There's no doubt about it. The others, obviously a big problem When Sheila Jackson Lee loves George Floyd with the and puts George Floyd in the same boat is Michael Brown, That is ridiculous. It is inaccurate. Michael Brown was trying to rip a gun out of the hand of the officer. In Missouri. When Michael Brown was shot. So there you have it.

Bruce Rasa - AgVoice: Voice Tech for the Farm

"Fascinating space because it seems, everyone is interested in voice. Everyone's willing to try and trial. It but we. We really here's got sparked. So about five years ago many people might remember that. Google did a public competition. For. Smart Glasses and they primarily aimed at you. Know vast majority that at the consumer market. But when I saw the device first floor in about it as a possible successor, initially compliment, but possible successor to the smartphone itself. I was really intrigued. At could be A. Very useful very practical everyday hands on tool to help people collect a saying for example in any industrial use case. And I just knew that intuitively because of Mine Akron grown up on the farm, families still farms in total like my a father brother GonNA cousins farm about ten thousand acres in western Missouri. uncles Nance also have an portrait of a forty thousand apple trees. Really Groping really neat, fascinating, rich diverse environment for for agricultural. work in the short versions observe was her hands on intense job, so when hands free tool came along I was interested tried out, so the specific origin story was. Through my name in the ring. In a you know Google did a public competition said. What would you do if you had this device? And I said well, if I had glass I would help. Farmers Growers Connect with consumers and show how their food is grown in a safe and environmentally responsible way so effectively the type of communications platform. To allow the world of agriculture to connect with the world of consumers, which usually has a lot of. Differences are GonNa Misunderstandings and the simple version is I was I was fortunate I was selected. and went through the list of the eight thousand people selected, and only five even mentioned the word agriculture. Got, this, device that has intriguing possibility, it's tested and so I actually I got the device in Los, Angeles I fully can say Missouri, and I went and test it with farmers the next day, so the first place in the world, smart glasses retested in the in the food production sector, anyway at least to general purpose, you know mass device. On Google's device was in western cooler bar. That's so cool, yeah! I think that's super interesting and you mentioned something there. You know hands busy labor intensive like that's where I think that. This is where it really caught. My attention is this. Is this notion that you know you think about that type of job? If you're a grower, you're a farmer more times than not I would imagine that you are doing things that are really. Really preoccupying yourself, but I think that as I've learned a little bit about your product, it really allows for them to continue to do the job that they're doing, but also sort of take care of a lot of different like almost like clerical work right like this is what I did today. These were the amount of bushels of apples that I picked. The right s you know kind of going like one by one and you can do this all on the go and and I. Just think that's so interesting, because clearly as you know, I would imagine that would the type of feedback that you've gotten is like this is a really positive thing because it allows me to do my job just way more efficiently than I had been doing it can. Can you speak a little bit to that idea of like how this tool serves that type of professional? Assure so a couple of examples quicken in that you know toying with the device on my whole goal was to put that. SMART glasses in a lot of people's hands, which I I got to meet with about eight hundred people over the course of a year people were from. Slightly more than twenty different countries got very diverse input and Dave. Two things came out loud and clear was. Screaming need for hands free device. NC exactly what you said was people already with a hands on job, sometimes a full professional job, not just if you will caller, but all of them have an escalating need to capture information as they're doing their job and they don't WanNa stop work doesn't sound like a big deal. Many people saying office, but this this stops ten twenty or thirty percent of their day by today's recordkeeping, which is really not frankly they're usually. They're talented their passion. But the the second thing that came out in their search was the voice recognition absolutely sucked. So these people have specialized dedicated jobs there. People could veterinarians a plant scientists agronomist. Machinery inspectors repair support in a very specific jobs. Basically, they have a very specific vocabulary or dictionary or lexicon. If you will a things they need to do the reports and pretty simple. If you if anyone listening this is tried anything with a general purpose, surface optimize for consumers be Siri. It could be google. Times Alexa Cortana. Usually those things really. Are Not optimized all for specific industrial use case yen. Okay, the second thing is. I'd observe what has happened. Ed Buried very successfully in the healthcare sector. So the quick kind of analogy there is whistling somewhat. Similar idea, but again the healthcare sector just one company alone called nuance. Brilliant job kind of from a distance think last I understood they've about five hundred thousand. Users that are doctors, nurses, health practitioners doing this thing you're talking about to invoice capture against healthcare records, so the big benefit to them is a reduction in this this overwhelming painful. recordkeeping piece so critical mandatory yet 'cause it's a major. Of Major source of overwhelming and burn out for physicians and other people in health care. And the second thing is frankly they're taking their eyes off the patient.

Trump sending federal law enforcement agents to Chicago, Albuquerque

"Donald Trump and U S Attorney General William Bar say federal agents will be sent to several U. S cities, including Chicago in Albuquerque, New Mexico, help deal with recent waves of violent crime. Trump was been touting himself as a law and order president blaming city governments and called for police de funding for upsurge in the violence. These same politicians have now embraced the far left movement to break up our Police Department's causing violent crime in their cities to spiral and I mean spiral seriously out of control. Federal agents have been in Portland, Oregon, and more than 100 federal agents have also been sent to Kansas City, Missouri, where gun violence claimed the life of a young boy. Some of those federal authorities include employees with the Department of Homeland Security, who generally conduct drug trafficking and child exploitation. Investigation's local authorities in Portland say the federal action has exacerbated tensions.

"Welcomed or guest today, Hector Baretto Hector form headed up the United States. Small Business Administration today. He's the chairman of the Latino Coalition. Thanks for waking up early with us. Do this actor thank you in our Co host Laura Collins, once again. Welcome back, Laura. She's the director in the Bush. Institute smu Economic Growth Initiative thank you. Thank Santa I. Only wake up early for this I know we. To Peel back the curtain we're here at about seven thirty in the morning in Dallas and Lauren I were comparing notes and turns out that one of us are morning. People so hector. We're looking. We're looking at you. Demand on. West Coast time. It's like five thirty in your body clock Oh. That's rough. Hector's here for our SME Economic Growth Advisory Council where he is one of them. Is that help guide the policy work that we do at the Bush Institute, because both of his expertise is the forty first administrator, the small business, and because his work with the Latino Coalition. Let's start with the former when you were with the small business administration. What was the goal of that department? What were you? You, all working on the small business. Administration was actually started in one, thousand, nine, hundred, fifty, three by President Eisenhower and there were some small business programs before that, but they unified those all into one agency, and it's really the agency that supports and advocates for America's small businesses, and that role has become even more important over the years when they formed the SBA. There probably weren't thinking that was going to be over thirty million small businesses in the united. United States and I like to say nothing small about small business. They really are the engine of America, the engine that fuels the economy of America not only are there a lot of them, but they represent over fifty two percent of the gross output of the economy. It's the place that two-thirds the net new jobs of our economy comes from, and it's also the place that a lot of our innovation comes from. That makes us the envy of the world. World in terms of our economy so very very important agency. A lot of people have heard of it, but they oftentimes don't know everything it does. Where does your passion for Small Business? Come from a well? That's easy. I was fortunate to be born into an entrepreneurial family, so the first business owners I ever met where my mother and father and my father was especially a serial entrepreneur. He loved business. He loves starting businesses. I'm not saying he loved running. My mother ran the business ideas, man yeah, but I learned a lot about a small business I used to joke that everything I learned about business. I learned in a Mexican restaurant because that's why I worked when I was a little kid. What jobs is you? Hold with your parents Oh, a lot of them, you know we were an immigrant family and. There was five children. My mother had five children six years. I have four younger sisters, and so we were all recruited to my father's executive training program very early on, so we all had to work I remember waiting tables when I was nine years old. So And then I. as I got older, I got more responsibility and help run some of those businesses and start some of those businesses, and my father had a number of different businesses. We started off with the restaurant business, because that's an easy business to access, but then later on at a little import export business, a little construction business, none of those businesses wherever really large, but they were very important to our family helps support us. They helped educate, and we learned a lot about being in business and working with the community and customers, and so your father came to America start these businesses. He actually didn't. My father was an immigrant to the United States in the late nineteen fifties. I don't think he was planning on staying that long. But he met my mother. My mother is also from immigrant parents from Mexico they've shown love, and and of all places they started their journey in Kansas City Missouri that's where I was born. I grew up in Kansas City Missouri and my father. He had a lot of different jobs as a lot of immigrants do when they first get here. His first jobs were picking. Picking potatoes for fifty cents an hour in rural Missouri and later on, he worked at a railroad, a literally pounding the spikes into the ground, but in the winter it got too cold, so he moved into He started working in the livestock business, and it was very difficult. dirty work. He was cleaning out stalls, but at least it was warmer than being outside. When he was working at the railroad later on he, he was a janitor at the school that I would eventually go to, but my father used to always say that he was a business owner, and I would say dad. You have these jobs. You're not a business owners. They know what I have to do right now, but eventually alone my own business, so he was very passionate about that. He always wanted to work for himself, so he starts so then he starts these businesses and his career trajectory starts trending too so far up that start happening. Yeah, my father was a very visionary leader very. Very charismatic you know he when he's grown up used to say know. I came here with nothing I didn't know anybody. I didn't speak the language. I had no money I had no power, but I believed in myself I was willing to work hard, and this is such a great country that affords us the opportunity to go as far as we WANNA go. We're only limited by our own imagination our own commitment, so he he's. We started these businesses, but later on my father was kind of an organizer as well, and he wanted to belong to the Chamber of Commerce. This is in Kansas City. Number of others spanning businesses. There were there at the time, and my father started asking. Where's the Hispanic Chamber? And they said well. There isn't an Hispanic Chamber. My Dad said well there should be, and if nobody else is going to start it, I will so my father was one of the founders of the Kansas City Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, that was in the mid seventies,

We'll be able to continue to go strong as is going even right now with me being being in the ministry On a regular basis versus being in the ministry periodically just showing my face periodically as govern the state of Missouri. There are some dynamic leaders and and again speaking from the core of my beliefs only just from the core believe God has given me the opportunity to develop great leaders and so I'm appreciative of those. That have been along side for ten to fifteen plus years and now understand the capacity of ministry and are able to do it and as a government believe that that quality and that trait in me will not stop that we will continue through the throughout the state develop leaders to make sure that our state is functioning in the way that benefits all. Yes sir definitely definitely and wealth. I definitely will. I mean I I think you definitely hit that nail on the head for sure. Thank you not a problem. Thank you sir Mr Morrison I have an additional question. Yes Sir why do you want to be covering Missouri? Can you thank you I will say this in a humorous way of first because his It wasn't anything that I just woke up one morning and and had desire to do you know I didn't wake up and say I wanna be a governor of the state that was not any of my attention I was Gonna ask you was that no no not at all not at all. Actually I had I had Was asked to participate in an event. Dan Allowed me Opportunity to Share one of my deep seated passions for the life of people not only children but people and that's education and the organization that per gave me an opportunity to present myself to the head of the Organization while we were about to work together was along the lines of the suspension rate in the state of Missouri. And so we did understand that and I do. Understand is still active Today to the school to prison pipeline and when I saw her level of suspension that was taking place another community organizer wanted me to participate in that effort to this work together to prevent the suspension rate In my presentation there was a gentleman out of Saint. Louis Missouri Bat was present and I didn't even I didn't know he was there. I didn't know he was from Saint Louis but after Maybe a year had passed. He reached out to me and asked me if I would consider running for governor of the State of Missouri and at that particular time I thought he was just playing on the phone That is really did. I thought it was so kind of a joke or something and The turns out to be it was something that was ordained. According to my core belief it was ordained by God for me to step out of this arena to a certain degree of just past dream but to step into that arena and continue to be a serve at the highest level and so As a result of that I have now found footing I find. I found myself embracing this call to be a greater The D. Go and Dessel for the State of Missouri. And I can't think of no one else that's more qualified than you. The rate of young men being incarcerated and young women and our children from the school to prison pipeline. I mean this could not be a better time to have officer as you are aware of my personal story at the age of fourteen. I was incarcerated for a crime that I did not commit so I went from school to prison. Yeah we're definitely speaking language right now. Running I definitely appreciate you so much. You have no idea. Thank you for your welcome for our listeners. That are just now tuning in. We've see the phone lines are blowing up. Please be patient with us. We'll get to you in just a few moments. We have missed meal on the line as well. Miss me and we'll be coming to you in just a few moments so right now no further. Do I know you guys are interested in knowing more about Mr Eric Morrison and you're anxious? They hear the questions that the world has from Mr Morrison about the impact that he will have and then he has already had in society in the world and in the Great State of Missouri. Mr Morrison how will your being an office the different from the past governors? That's a that's a real good and Legitimate question Kenya. Let me let me address it from this angle. If you don't mind my was I as a pastor. I'd never looked back at what the other pastors before me of this particular ministry. That administered now We hear we hear a lot of things that are. Kinda SORTA cliche and this in light of Building up on someone else's shoulders standing on the shoulders but I found out a lot of times That to a certain extent the next individual has not really built up on another person's shoulders unless it's something that is already there that is working so I I I want to assure missourians in light of what I saw as a person moving up I guess to say in ranks from just coming From off the streets into the church being uh sure and just being committed and watch God. Elevate my life into pasturing. I say this that there were things that were going on. That did not need to be removed because they worked just fine so as a governor whatever is already in place and it is Working Fine Missourians can can rest assure that that will be nothing that I touch. If it's working we heard it is clear. Shake you know you don't you know Tear down a wheel breakaway or stop the car from rolling. If is rolling. Finally you just continue to give it maintenance and make sure that keeps on going but we have seen in the past because it's not someone else's they stop it you know and try to You know manage to build something. That was not necessary if the wheel is already functioning. Let the wheel row. So I can say outside of all the other governors West GonNa make My position as governor in the state of Missouri. I guess different than the others is that what if there's already working missourians can rest. Assure that Eric Morrison is GonNa make sure that it continues to work and gives better but that that is not working that that is in place and is not working for everybody then. Missourians can get ready because my my candidacy. My position as governor is to make sure that whatever it's not working for everybody begins to work for everybody 'cause that's where my heart is so there's a refreshment and if someone the as a reflection on what happened with Jay Nixon. What happened with Mike Parson? And they WANNA do the comparisons they. That's GONNA be their homework. But for Eric I'm GONNA come in and it is working right now for everybody. I'm going to improve on it to continue to work for everybody. But whatever's there and it is not working for everybody then the Missourians can get ready for our ministration to come in and begin to end it for from that perspective and and begin to work it so that it is providing with radius is has to provide for everybody. Because that's what the E and Eric stands for it stands for.

Followed by national guard called by city a newborn recreational buses to get folks in these buses. Shelters. The vet said it was the end of the road. But it turned into an unexpected new beginning for an Oregon man and his dog. Komo's Brian Calvert sorts through a series of events. No one seems to be able to explain let's begin with Bertha personality is just a sure lover and Michael Downey who lives in a suburb of Portland bought the four month old pit bull puppy along with its sister on a friend's advice. Michael took the two pups to have them checked out. At a veterinary clinic in Clackamas, the doctor told Michael Bertha had parvo virus the doctor put Bertha on medication that we didn't get a call until the next morning Bertha wasn't responding to the medicine. And so therefore, we were and therefore we were told that she had to be an ISO Michael told our news partner K to he made that tough decision. If that's the only option we have been got throughout you know, we have to take Michael Downey returned to the clinic the next day to see if he had to sign any papers for Bertha, or if you get a Bill to pay everybody access spacious in the clinic. Nobody can give a clear answer on where Bertha was or what happened to her Oregon laws as verbal consent is all that's needed to relinquish an animal. That's exactly what Michael did he gave a Bertha? But he claims he was under the impression that euthanizing. Her was the only thing that could be done for her flash forward a few days later. A friend finds a photo on Facebook the dog in that photo looks exactly like Bertha idiots birth up as alive is ever. Then when right there in your face, and you're like. Well, then that's the person that checked in my dogs cherry on top the person in the photo with the dog was one of the technicians at the same veterinary clinic where Michael Downey was told. There was nothing that could be done for his dog yet here she is alive. And now apparently adopted out to another family the clinic told Ketu there are two sides to every story, but when asked to elaborate, they did not downy is now considering legal action.
