"I was fifteen. And sean you. You're seventeen right when we first met. And we were both in church in lexington kentucky and we met just so you. I asked me for my number at the watch night service and those who long before that though. Yeah but watch night services a tradition in the back this church maybe other churches actually not just baptist but is it a particularly black thing. I don't know watch night services where you just you watch the new year. Come in you're at church at midnight and there's like a church service and then afterwards there's normally a dinner or breakfast being served. It's a really awesome time. That was the first time you actually from my number. But you're right. We have met before then. Just seen each at church and out. I'll let you tell the story of how you became immediately smitten with. I didn't notice what s where you were going. But and i saw this girl who seemed like she was running things she really was the sunday school secretary but not just for children like for the whole sunday school at the church and i remember just thinking to myself. Who is this young girl. That is running everything. She was super spunky and she always warlike creative hats and had a lot of style. So you just pique my interest. But at that time she and i both always kept a boyfriend and girlfriend and so she was dating. Somebody and i was dating somebody. But i i was pretty interested in her. It took me almost six months to kind of build up the nerve to to get her number and then even very slow moving. I was interested in you for really from the first moment that we started talking to each other and john would show up at choir rehearsals and stuff for no good reason. He didn't sing. He wasn't in the choir. I was but i guess they didn't have anything better to do it. His time on a thursday night and so he would come and we were like chitchat. And even after you asked for my number. And i gave it to you like it took forever to to ask me out. I think you were shy. I was slow. Maybe i was a bit shy. But i think some of it was. I had just grown to be like a super private person at that point in time. And so i'd have to even go back in time and reimagined what i was thinking but once we got started we were super committed to each other in super into each other. After that we went on our first date. I was a sophomore in high school. John was a senior and then he left to go to morehouse college in atlanta. And i was still stuck in kentucky waiting to graduate high school and then i would go to atlanta to attend spellman. We dated long distance for two years and it will never not amaze me that we maintained long distance relationship s. sixteen and eighteen year old and he was in atlanta the city of lag. Black excellent surrounded by all these beautiful women and still somehow interested in little me backing kentucky. But he was and we made it and about two years into college. Actually we got married because the baby came. I actually our oldest birch out candy. She was born my sophomore year. Now she was born junior year at spelman and we got married before she was born. Just to be sure we weren't total heathen we have been raised in church and so that was like a requirement before that baby gets here. You better be married so we did get married and had kendy and so we were super young parents. I tell everybody. I had a husband and a baby and i couldn't even drink yet. I wasn't even twenty one years old kids really and when you're in college in this kind of in between stage of childhood and adulthood and we hardly knew how to provide for ourselves sauce doing airport security and we were still going to school fulltime which was a struggle. We both struggled to finish college. We did when we knew in part. Not just that we wanted to do it but we knew act to to make a life in a living for ourselves that we were going to have to finish school but it was brutally difficult to do that with a young family. And when we were doing this in two thousand and one it was particularly in the college environment where we were more house than spelman are super traditional and it was kind of frowned upon in a way to be a young parent. Mba student for sure. Nobody was saying anything overtly necessarily but we were aware now you see videos and things go viral of professors holding babies while they're trying to concentrate in class and that was not our experience like me walking around bully nine months pregnant. I don't remember anybody else who was doing that. Yeah it was really difficult. It was alienating in some ways our lives completely changed pretty much at every stage of life. Man not tell people now. I really can't separate my whole adulthood from being a father and rain. I've been parents literally almost every year of our adult life and so our entire journey of even self-discovery in our twenties of trying to understand what either one of us grew up in a household where we saw healthy marriages and healthy relationships kind of had to struggle and sometimes flounder and figure those things out on our own and one of the things they ran. I've always tried to tell people is when you grow up in a lot of ways when you grow up in a marriage. We were together as teenagers together in our twenties in our thirties. Now i'm forty. You are with somebody through several phases of life and we've had to learn some really hard lessons than heart's skills on how to support in love your spouse through all the different natural phases that a lot of people just by the time you marry somebody. They've already gone through some of those phases. We've learned a lot of lessons. Have been with each other for now. Almost twenty five years even though whereas young as we are. We've we're nearing twenty five year point of being together

Obituary: Herman Cain

"Herman Cain helped define the American black conservative movement. He also set the stage for trump by Philip Elliott. Herman. CAIN remembered the nineteen ninety-six moment that changed his political trajectory as clearly as any in his life. The businessman was advising Jack Kemp's vice presidential campaign and accompanied the boss to the iconic Sylvia's soul food restaurant in Harlem for an event a man in the crowd shouted out to Kane and colleagues Black Republicans, there's no such thing. The. Same Man in canes telling called them Uncle Toms. The episode. So angered Kane that when he got home from that campaign swing, he switched from a registered independent to a card carrying member of the Republican. Party and over the next quarter century, the child of the segregated south became one of the best known black Republicans in the country briefly rising to be his party's presidential front runner for the two thousand twelve nomination and remaining one of the most quotable stars in conservative media. So committed to his party's stick it in the I e host was Cain that he flew to Tulsa. Oklahoma for President Donald, trump's first return to the campaign trail after one hundred thousand US corona virus deaths despite dire warnings from public health experts at that endure rally on June twentieth the stage four colon cancer survivor posed for pictures without wearing a mask and sat in the packed stands with fellow fans of the president on June twenty-ninth Cain tested positive for the corona virus. On July second, his aides announced he had been hospitalized while fighting the disease his twitter account continued to criticize mask wearing and to promote unproven endorsements of hydroxy. On. July. Thirtieth CAIN aides announced he had died from the White House trump attributed the death to the thing called the virus cain among the most prominent Americans to die during this pandemic who was seventy four In many ways, Kane and trump were cut from the same cloth neither had been elected to any political post before running for the White House, both delighted in needling the Republican Party's establishment and the mainstream press they shot from the hip campaigned in slogans and didn't much care to learn the details. Both men were dogged by allegations of sexual affairs and inappropriate behavior, and both denied the allegations they proved disqualifying for Kane who ended his bid in December twenty eleven under intense scrutiny. But they did not derail trump just one election cycle. Later, they were also both savvy exploiters of the media. In saying things they knew would provoke outrage and thus amplify the celebrity at the core of their bids indifference toward if not hostility against what had come before was a cornerstone of their strategy, not a flaw. CAIN was born in Memphis in nineteen forty-five to a domestic worker mother and a janitor father when his dad was hired to be the chauffeur for the head of coca-cola, the family moved to Atlanta where cain would graduate from Morehouse College. He then completed his graduate studies at Purdue University after civilian service in the navy from there Kane moved from engineer to executive with Pillsbury and its subsidiaries of Burger King and Godfather's pizza where he would be its CEO. In nineteen, Eighty Eight, he oversaw Godfather's. From, Pillsbury throughout the same time yelled positions with the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. That part of his resume lead trump to consider cane for a position in his administration a move that drew dissent from fellow Republicans who were not eager to revisit the allegations against Kane for three years. Kane led the national. Restaurant Association a lobbying arm for the industry that paid settlements to at least two women who detailed canes unwanted advances. His was not a typical career in his post. CEO Years Cain became a sought after motivational speaker and unsuccessful presidential candidate in two thousand and a Senate one in two thousand four. As, the tea party movement started to organize after Barack Obama's election to the White House. Kane emerged as one of its strongest spokespeople when the twenty twelve election cycle began kane decided to run the scrappy est of campaigns focused on untrue additional travel schedule that often seemed more like a book tour than an organizing effort. His novel nine, nine nine tax plan proposing a nine percent corporate business flat tax, a nine percent personal income flat tax and a nine percent national sales tax drew I rolls from economists but curiosity from voters. Antipathy toward front runner Mitt Romney proved sufficient to give cain a chance to rise in the late summer and fall of twenty eleven until his personal life just proved too much. But he didn't shrink from podcast life. Instead he became a ubiquitous voice and reliable critic of Democrats

Members Of The Class Of 2020 Face A Brutal Job Market

"Just. A few months ago college seniors could reasonably expect to graduate into one of the best job markets in history. Now, because of the pandemic, they've graduated into one of the worst generations when members of the class of twenty twenty half landed jobs, the experience is odd NPR's Berlin reports. Twenty twenty was shaping up to be a great year for Golden. DACA, he be the first member of his family to graduate from college not only that he was the Valedictorian of his school. Morehouse College. ATLANTA. But in March, campus emptied and classes went online and then the moment he'd been waiting for commencement it was postponed I wanted to give that huge speech onstage with my family friends and loved ones who made it very possible for me to go to it came to an abrupt end been expecting rites of passage and celebration. Instead he landed in the pandemic, it's been a really difficult transition you know and it's been one that's a mocking allies with. A lot of uncertainty. A lot of self doubt. Worst of all, his grandmother who was supposed to come see him graduate passed away in their native. Zambia. Despite everything, there has been a bright spot dako landed a paid fellowship with the governor of Illinois after four rounds of remote interviews. So I'm more on the fortunate side and a lot of my classmates in other individuals across the nation are is a very challenging time to be a new college graduate through pollock is a Labor economist with the job sites Ziprecruiter. So compared with fee labor market in February before covert hit, we have seen job postings for the entry level positions most popular among new college graduates fall by seventy three percent. But even though postings have plummeted, people are still landing jobs. So even in a crisis, there are companies hiring eighteen million jobs have been posted. On ziprecruiter since covert struck, what has changed dramatically is how those new workers get hired interviews or evolving from those zoom skype calls and now to virtual video platforms where you record yourself answering the questions and then send that video in yourself. So you have no interaction with a person that all the lack of face to face human interaction that's been one constant for Danielle Kaplan she graduated this spring from the University of Iowa, and moved in with her mom it's been fine. But with a lot of activity around the house, it was tricky for her to find a quiet place for job interviews. So I, feel like my interviewer singing a different background, every single time with them. You know this is a very difficult, but as it turned out, backgrounds didn't matter. So I will be heading to Kansas City to work at a startup in. So I'm really excited about it. Kaplan's excitement is accompanied by trepidation because so much of the last few months felt unreal even disembodied. This is a huge major life transition that I'm about to undergo and it doesn't feel that way. I've been virtually meeting people. Virtually getting an apartment. So nothing feels like tangible to me all that is about to change this weekend. Kaplan will load up a rental truck and moved to a new hometown. Kansas. City. There won't be anything virtual about it.

"I'm not a boy scout the man that taught me so much about the practice of law was one of Martin Luther king junior's roommates of Morehouse College the beloved judge Robert V. Franklin Lucas county common pleas court in Toledo Ohio they told me story after story about his time with M. L. the late forties and Morehouse College and I respected him greatly and famously I'm not a boy scout I know what happens in big city police departments in the city of Cincinnati for example I was in the public defender's office here in the late nineteen seventies and I heard time and time and time again about the violence perpetrated part perpetrated by police officers on African American males it happened on a regular basis a rough ride stick him in the basement go over some realistic stick him in the trunk handcuff him put him in the trunk of your place car they give a rough ride which is bouncing over railroad tracks and bottles give a rough ride okay I'm not a boy scout that kind of crap on on and it happened in northern Kentucky it happened high happened in Indiana the high and I and I can imagine it happened in Philadelphia in the morning in Cleveland and Denver I imagine that happened there has been a metamorphosis in policing over the past twenty to twenty five years and right now after Rodney king about thirty years ago after the one writes in the city of Cincinnati what happened all over America with the Trayvon Martin and also the killing of the police officers Ramose in low and then your city the five four cops killed in Dallas there is been a utter change and how arrestor conducted it is awfully rare for a police officer today to shoot anybody especially a blackmail because of what happens during the cops got that message tater of the cops got that message he's bent over backwards to do what I gotta do it to me it is incredible that officer Derek Chapman to bother with tonight's on suicide watch could have done that for almost ten minutes and kill that man what officers standing around watching it they must have thought they weren't officiating in which they were not there at all times report says let the air passages were not compromised but it was a major contributing factor it was a torture because he died partially as a result of what Derek Java data gross disregard for life and he did that and as I eight thirty at night but it was broad daylight with video going I mean are you kidding me how does that happen his other regular courage to do you really believe those kinds of activities happen on a regular basis one practically every major city in America is controlled by left wing radical liberal mayors who have the police departments under scrutiny because they control who's hired how they're trained how they're promoted how they get benefits and how they retire mayor Jacob fry directly or indirectly and his party hired officer Derek challenge he kept employed and trained him for eighteen complaints against them did nothing zero Amy Klobuchar US senator might be the VP pick for Joe Biden spent years in charge of the criminal justice system and the state of Minnesota correct and she claims there's institutional racism and the justice system and Minnesota when she's in charge of it can you walk to the side and somehow say I'm not liable I'm not responsible for the racism in the institution that I'm in charge of this is make sense to anyone how do you keep Ellison got all the wolf Blitzer a few hours ago on CNN he's the guy now in charge of the criminal investigation these cops institutional racism one is in charge of the institution that's racist how does he get away with saying these things identifier tell me what it is George Floyd is dead and buried child and killed him and their co conspirators with those other three cops and they will be brought to complete full another justice much like that cop in South Carolina was it water Davis was murdered killed by a rogue cop in South Carolina he's doing twenty to thirty years in jail huh there's bad shootings look a lot like one McDonald in Chicago the cops lied in Chicago shot him a dozen times and then lied that was murder and the cops the data were convicted and they should be convicted the great American will always give them the benefit of the doubt what would George Floyd there was no doubt there's no benefit to give the Quan McDonald there was no benefit to give none zero zilch nada it is a rare awfully rare occurrence when in uniform a police officer commits a murder not a killing but a murder of a handcuffed defendant on a city street so to have also with wolf Blitzer in earlier today Susan rice suggested today Sunday afternoon that the Russians the Russians could be behind the violent nationwide demonstrations are you kidding me the Russians she said quote I would not be surprised to learn that the Russians for men and some of these extremists on both sides use social media I would not be surprised to learn they are finding it in some way the Russians are funding this according to Susan rice then also the mayor the boy Marignane competent clown in charge of Minneapolis Minnesota Jacob Frye said there's foreign influences so I'm watching my right what's happening in Santa Monica I'm gonna have on James Harrison of newsmax and and what's happening when Nordstrom stores are ransacked that day in Philadelphia one target stores are ransacked what the hell does that have to do with George Floyd a big screen TV thank short break when we continue to take your calls to eight six six six four seven seven three three seven plus Saint Patrick's cathedral has been desecrated tonight St Patrick's Confederate monuments by the way the Confederates were Democrats targeted in an environment toppled the white cop Terry could challenge according to drudge is on suicide watch two crises convulsing the nation the pandemic in the police violence it isn't it is the violence of a police officer it is general killed for wrongful individual behavior I got cop after cop texting me tonight saying that's not us we don't do that how come a if one cop does something wrong all cops are responsible is not in the sense discrimination and is in a real sense about twenty percent of the cops in the country are African American do you think they're racist too how do we paint with such a broad brush that we generally blame an entire group of people for the admitted killing by one how is that possible and according to many I've seen that the protest could fuel covert nineteen resurgence the democratic mayor of Atlanta at a lucid moment and she said that the lock you better get tested for covert nineteen locking up shopkeepers and those who go to church if they want to protest you can't do it but there is I don't know a hundred thousand two hundred thousand around the country tonight testing and burning and looting and robbing and that has nothing to do with closeness in covert nineteen are you kidding me thank you short break fifteen minutes after the hour in about forty minutes we're gonna have on a big city vice mayor Christopher Smitherman then about an hour and ten minutes gonna put a call into Kevin Jackson the blacks fairer from Arizona and also at the wrap up tonight in the last part of the last hour we're going to have on the newsmax TV's James person to talk about what he's seeing in Santa Monica and Los Angeles tonight it's getting near sundown in LA we're

How sad that. Probably most of them. Don't understand. Most of them who are probably antagonistic toward capitalism. Most of them, probably don't understand that their student loan debt is going to be paid for by somebody else because of capitalism. That political and economic system that so many of them looked down upon and impune. Free market, capitalism, made Robert F Smith a billionaire. No other economic or political system in the world. Could have done that socialism, most certainly couldn't have done that Robert F Smith by the way, African American grew up in a very middle class. Home had a mom and dad, which is great, but he grew up middle class. He was a smart guy went to school on a scholarship went to business school on a scholarship, and then away he went he worked his ass off. Gamble the wrist he invested a lot. He did some great great things. And before you know, it, he became a billionaire. He took advantage of. And worked through capitalism. And that made him a billionaire freedom and free markets. Not government control. Government didn't make this guy wealthy. Government control of the means of production did not make this guy wealthy. No. The markets did freedom. Did. It's a great story.

"Graduates of Morehouse college that he would pay off the remaining student debt. I have to admit I was a little jealous, but I really admired the gesture, Mr Smith, not only gave advice but he put it into real action isn't that amazing? And I think it was many years ago. I don't remember how many years ago is a long time where I was at a at a church service in the passer said something very profound. He said, most of us are cowards now, I, I was taken aback like I'm not a coward. But what he meant was a lot of us. Have that good idea. But we never put it in action. We have the kind thought, but we don't do anything about it where you do something. We say man I'm gonna make. I'm gonna make my TSP better. I'm going to pay more attention. But we don't do it. You know, we just have all these things that we like, I'm going to clean my closet, but I don't do it, but I think in a lot of ways we all have good ideas. Ios. But it's hard to follow through right, sometimes then just a good ideas wishful thinking, and never turns into a new habit and then missed opportunities to make a difference happen. And so what I admired most about this grand gesture was, it was not only giving advice but putting into action and I think we can all take a look at that we can look in the mirror, and maybe even look at how we handle our finances, and our families, and our loved ones, and really think about how could we put best practice into place. You know, it's funny my wife and I got into a little dispute Tokala it wasn't really an argument. Like I think you've get into arguments with co workers, but you don't really get into marital disputes. You what I'm talking about the disputes about nothing like it really doesn't matter, like most of the time, you don't remember the topic, but you get into dispute because you spend so much time with your spouse. Like am I the only on the desert? So my wife wanted a towel bar put up in the bathroom. And she happened to tell me about it at the worst possible time, you know, as one of those days, VERA, had one of those bad days where your schedule is full, and you just all you can think about is turning your brain off in just writing the rest of the day out. So I was right in the head space, and she told me, hey, we need to put the towel bar up in the bathroom. And I said something I should not have said, I said, is there any way you could put up the towel bar, which is only wasn't the response. She was looking for. And so we got into a dispute, and I said, well, I think that you can do it, and she said, I think you should do it. And so what I can tell you is. We don't have a towel bar in our bathroom, okay? Because it's a good idea to avatar bar, but we haven't put into action, and it's interesting because I think we do that. I think that we know in some way that the market will go down the next couple of years. We know that if you ask yourself, if you think about it this afternoon if you ask yourself, will, the TSP go down in the next five years, I have to think the property ability is extraordinarily high that it will. And you probably think so, to four years, three years, two years. I mean at some point it has to go down. The market's been up for well over a decade, so it has to go down. But are you acting like are you doing something about it? See your TSP funds your IRA funds, your 4._0._1._K funds. That's your retirement in many ways, it is that income is those assets above and beyond social security, and pension that will define what your retirement looks like two, three four five six seven eight nine ten years from now, and so, even though you might have the idea that the market could go down. Are you paying enough attention to your retirement assets to do something about it before it does? If you wanna retire year from now, are you really learning how to take social security right now? Do you have a pension projection? Do you understand how taxes are going to work? Do you know where to withdraw money from or is it just a good idea that things will work out? We talked about a retirement mindset, envisioning retirement in the last segment. But have you done the homework, have you done the math to figure out how to use your assets? Affectively. Can you take good ideas and put it into action?.

"Thanks for hanging around with us here that's half of the program. You heard the news, of course this week, Robert Smith, the CEO of a big private equity firm. He gave the commencement address at Morehouse college. And here's what he said of the eight generations of my family who have been in this country. We're going to put a little fuel in your bus. This is my class twenty nineteen and my family is making a grant to eliminate their student loans. Well, that was a pretty astonishing offer that he made Robert Smith is worth five billion dollars. One of the most successful people in this country. He said he would pay off the debt of every graduate in that class about four hundred students. Nobody's sure exactly yet. How much money this is. It's about forty million dollars is the estimate Morehouse college is an HVAC you a historically black college, and university tuition mayors forty eight thousand dollars a year eighty percent of their students have loans. The average indebtedness is forty thousand dollars. Now here's what's important to understand. H B C. You historically black college and university. There are a number of these institutions around the country, according to the department of education. College graduates of HP use of storage black institutions have debt, thirty two percent higher than college graduates, who attend other institutions. The Economic Policy Institute says that recent graduates of historically black colleges earn seventeen percent less than white graduates, earn and so four years out of school, most graduates, stoically black colleges have not paid a single dollar toward their loan balance. In fact, if you go back to two thousand four Columbia, University did a study of the twelve years after two thousand four and they discovered that half of African American student loan borrowers have defaulted on their loans twice as many as white borrowers. So this is a problem. We all know that college is often a gateway to financial success, a better life. The ability to move up in your socio economic class in America. And it's so important that we get minorities into higher education so they can improve themselves and their lives for themselves and their families. And yet, we're discovering according to this data from the department of education, the Economic Policy Institute, and Columbia University. All of these studies show that students who are African American, and those who attend historically black colleges and universities end up with greater amounts of student loan debt. They earn less money and they are more likely to default on that debt. And so we do give tremendous round of applause to Robert Smith for solving that problem for these four hundred graduates at Morehouse college Smith is known for his philanthropy. He signed the giving pledge. That's a commitment to give away more than half of his wealth. Many billionaires have signed that document. He's donated twenty million dollars to the national museum of African American history and culture in Washington DC, the Smithsonian he donated two and a half million to the prostate Cancer Foundation. He's chairman of the board of Carnegie. Hall. But here's the thing, some people are raising criticism of Robert Smith for the gift that he has made. In fact, others have gotten criticism Oprah Winfrey. A week after Robert Smith gave his commencement address. More has college Oprah Winfrey gave a commencement address of her own at Colorado college, and she gave all of the graduates in that class, a copy of her latest book. I don't social media. She got criticized one said, quote, Oprah you should have paid off their student debt instead of giving them a book. Well, Oprah responded to her credit, and she noted that she has given over thirteen million dollars in scholarships to Morehouse college, and she's one of more houses top donors Oprah has a long proud record of her own philanthropy. But more to the point is this. Why are we criticizing? Philanthropists who choose. To give away money as they do isn't that a choice an option. We all have when did it suddenly become the obligation of billionaires to solve the student loan crisis as opposed to government, solving the crisis, or the higher education system itself, solving the crisis or employers solving the crisis or the parents solving the crisis? We're allowing schools to charge what they charge parents or allowing their children to pay those tuition rates to incur, those debts parents are taking second jobs borrowing against retirement accounts, leveraging, the mortgages on their homes in order to come up with the cash, why are we engaging them all of those things. And instead returning to billionaire saying it's up to you to solve this crisis. Isn't that an interesting social phenomenon that we're experiencing at the same time? Some folks are noting with great interest, the way in which Mr Smith went about his gift giving. He has said publicly that the. Idea came to him, only three days before he was to give his commencement address, that doesn't strike me, as somebody who is given this, a huge degree of thought. In other words, this was a passion play this was something that he chose to do out of personal conviction. It was an emotional decision. Not a financial one. Not an economic one. It wasn't a business model. He didn't do case studies. And he didn't do a lot of Survey Research, and he didn't do a lot of data analysis to decide that he from the heart wanted to resolve this problem for these four hundred graduates. Some folks are saying this didn't really do. Anybody any good? This is only a value to those four hundred graduates. It didn't do anything for the graduates of any of the other colleges around the country who weren't as lucky to have selected him to be the commencement speaker. It also didn't do any good to all of the Morehouse college students who dropped out, but nevertheless, still have their student loan debt. He only gave the money to the four hundred graduates. What if a student had dropped out after amassing ten or twenty thousand dollars debt? Also, the money only went to those in debt. Think about that for a minute. What if your student managed to graduate without any debt because you worked really hard scrimped and saved and sacrifice, your kid got summer jobs, worked on campus, full time while attending college. Did everything possible to avoid debt and after all of that self sacrifice watching roommates partying and Levin around and having a great time and amassing Ness of student loan debt? They just got rewarded by having that forty thousand dollars in debt wiped clean, and essence punishing you for your prudence and your success. S. Is that the right message that we want to send to today's high school kids headed to college? Don't worry about it. Some sugar daddy will show up and write a check. And saw your problem for you in the future. Also, this money was given to all four hundred graduates indiscriminately, without any regard to how much debt they had at the moment and without any regard to the career that they're about to pursue one college graduate was quoted by the media of how excited he was to have this debt released, and he noted his dad is ten thousand dollars and he just got a job as an engineer at Google. He starts in June. He's going to be making over two hundred thousand dollars a year. He only has ten thousand dollars student loan debt. Did he really need the help from Mr Smith and paying off at ten grand? I think not whereas there, other students who might have needed it more and all of this came about only in arrears only after the students have struggled for four to six years to get their degree incurring the debt along the way facing graduation fearful of their futures only them where they told, don't worry about it. That's off as opposed to have saying this to the incoming college freshmen so that they can alter their college career. Don't worry about getting a job during college focus on your studies, maybe changed the degree you're going to pursue so that you're not chasing degree that pays well, but instead is something that the country needs something like teachers or social workers or nurses. Maybe they would have changed the field or planning to enter had they known for six years ago that they were going to be able to graduate debt free. These are criticisms of the strategy. It is not a criticism of Mr Smith's philanthropy, or his large heart of which we should all take note and follow suit. My point is this, when you are choosing to engage in philanthropic charitable and community service activities. You need to think through decide why you're. Doing what it is you're doing who it is. You're giving money to why you're trying to do that. What you're hoping the impact will be and make your gift accordingly. If it is truly a gift from your heart as this clearly was for Mr Smith, you bask in the joy of giving the money without these questions about implications and appropriateness and alternative opportunities. Those are academic questions and not frankly justified for others to impose on you. For Robert Smith. Thank you for helping out this four hundred students. We hope that this will materially and favorably improve their lives and that they pay it forward. And I hope that others will follow in your suit, and do likewise..

"How do you two hundred thousand dollars in loan debt as a finance major? He said that amount would take him roughly, he figured it out. Major twenty-five years at half his monthly salary. But again, how do you rack up two hundred thousand dollars as an undergrad finance? He was weeping when he heard this, he says, I don't have to live off peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for half of my life. So again, one of the things is will everybody went, I don't disagree with what you're saying. But a lot of people like this is great to have their student loan. There's a lot of people saying like you said, wait a minute. How the hell did you get? Who told you that two hundred grand in debt was a smart thing to do? You got lucky than a billionaire showed up at your commencement address, and said they were going to wipe out your student loan debt. Otherwise you and many other classmates. We're going to be resigned to a life of staring at twenty five years to pay off your loans. Most loans out there right now about ninety percent of them come through the federal government. The rest are private loans, okay, from banks and so on, so forth. But prior to the last decade, you know, the, the whole downturn recession about twenty five percent loans were made Via Banque with federal government agreeing to take on the risks. If somebody defaulted on it, that change the whole student loan program was overhauled about a decade ago and affectively cut commercial banks from the market so banks can still make private loans, but they're no longer, guaranteed by the federal government and therefore borrowers are subjected to higher interest than what you would typically get from a government loan. You see how that that's keeps going. But I also find this to be interesting. We now have a real world economics experiment that can go on. Thanks to the students at Morehouse college. Why's that? Well, if you wanna know if having zero student loan debt causes a certain outcome in the future. Right. You. You have a higher salary or more wealth, or graduate degree? We've heard those things before a simplistic approach would be to compare the outcomes of somebody who took out student loans compared to somebody who didn't. Yeah. But that's not really a good approach because those who take out loans come from a different background than somebody who can outright pay for college. So you want somebody earn experiment, that compares identical groups of people. And that's what Robert Smith philanthropist has now offered the economic Gandhi, because you could take a look at this graduating class two thousand nineteen where he has said he's going to wipe out their student loan pay infertile clothing, grand finance, major managed to Recco. You can imagine that the, you know the composition of the Raj waiting class of two thousand eighteen or two thousand nine hundred. It'd be about the sing roughly say the class after and compare them over five years. Ten years, fifteen years in see what the outcome is between those two groups, because they're going to be relatively the same in see if all of these ideas, we have if you can start off your adult life without debt, puts you that much further. Exactly is that relief that much that much more positive than we think it is. But I mean, you think about, again the positive it is of him wiping out the debt, but the only reason we say at a positive is because we know how crippling the debt would be to me. I get right back to the fact that the class before in the class after are, quote unquote screwed and they're screwed by a lot of times by their own choices. And this is where you're not gonna not everyone few people are going to have a billionaire come and bail them out of bad choices. Morehouse college I look it up because I was curious. So if you go to school at Morehouse, which is where this is. All right. It's about fifty thousand dollars a year. That's where you get the two hundred roughly, I mean, we still are sure how he managed to get two hundred grand for years of loans, wouldn't quite get there. But the point is you could go down the street to Georgia State University for fifteen grand, you chose to go to more health decisions you make. And while some degrees may be worth at these premier institutions most art, but the people taking out loans or making bad choices. They're making bad choices. Good luck. Having a billionaire Bill yet. Your.

Maybe she should look at MSNBC and Rachel Maddow, and James Hodgkinson with his rifle maybe maybe should look at that. I'm just I don't wanna bring up any facts or anything that would be inconvenient. Camera. Harris's campaign also said she wouldn't participate, still they hate a big audience. I think they're intimidated by large audiences. That's whether comfortable going on. CNN MSNBC, where really nobody shows up. And, and they know that very few people are watching at home. So if they and if they make mistakes, how could they because they got thrown these, these soft balls, they're law little muffins, and they can wack them with their, their bed Menton, Reckitt speak, because it's really a challenge for these people going on CNN or MSNBC. ABC gone with George Stephanopoulos on you. Go on CNN your there, Jim shoe is an Obama administration official ask real hardball questions of you like what's your favorite music, and things like that. They would they have. Oh, yeah. Jay Inslee, he's a democrat goober. He is running for president. He was on CNN this morning and they the because he's running. President, you gotta ask them. Some real tough questions on a lighter note, or perhaps a cooler note as you would say, we like to ask candidates who come in about their musical preferences, and we call it sniffers candidate McStay recall, it fluffer is your favorite band, or grouper musician. That's really I you know, that's a probing question. I think that's really great stuff. But that's what you get when you go on CNN, and you're a democrat because it's all MTV boxer briefs, would you like to play the saxophone put on your sunglasses? Again, which you like to date my daughter. You know, the democrat party stuff there when they say they're giving than sharing people. They, it's just it's not obvious what they're talking about. But sometimes it appears. Whether to appear on the Fox News channel has suddenly become a polarizing decision for the sprawling field of Democrats town halls of become an unlikely linked blood test, excuse me, Inc. Blood test for a democrat presidential candidates. They've carved up the field. Partly along lines of who wants our needs the most press attention, but especially based on how the candidates vision their path to the presidency. None of these people actually envision a path to the presidency unless they're completely delusional. But, but I guess they can claim that, that that's the case. You know, a lot of people in my party were critical of me for even doing this with Fox News. Pete boot edge, edge said and I get where that's coming from, especially when you see what's going on with some of the opinion hosts on this network, and then singled out, Tucker Carlson. Laura Ingram is a sexist and, and probably, I don't know hetero. Phobic could be hetero. Foco takes should be called hetero. Phobic for all of the stuff but he's excited. He said he wants to go on stations where you know. Where where not everybody agrees with him. And that'd be Fox News, which would certainly indicate that CNN MSNBC our networks, where everyone agrees with him. And I think that would be a fair assessment of the situation saying that he doesn't want to go on going on Fox News where they don't have the same opinions that we have. Yeah. Well, maybe that's the maybe that's the case. Maybe that's the case. He went on FOX and anyone he's brave because not everyone there agrees with him on everything. Which makes it clear that every place, Elsie goes everyone there agrees with him on everything. What more do you need to know? All right. Many many, many items this is this great. We do. Have the Morehouse college? I want to do the Morehouse college Morehouse college. It's great great stuff. Great stuff, the billionaire, Robert, F Smith. Pledges to pay off Morehouse college class of two thousand nineteen student loans because capitalism is king, capitalism rules, the nutcases are saying, though, don't you? And this is we have some audio of, of Robert Smith from Morehouse college on the commencement ceremony over the weekend. It was a hot sticky morning in Atlanta on Sunday when billionaire investor and philanthropist. You know, he couldn't be philanthropist, if he weren't too billionaire poor people are rarely philanthropists is a billionaire and philanthropist. Robert F Smith stood atop outdoor stage on the campus of Morehouse college and started delivering a speech that the nearly four hundred graduates, probably thought would be the usual commencement. Fair Smith described being bused to high performing predominantly white school across town in Denver, where he grew up. He said, he'll never forget climbing onto bus number. Thirteen to Carson elementary, those five years drastically changed the trajectory of my life. He said the teachers at Carson were extrordinary they embraced me and challenged me to think critically and start to move toward my full potential intern came to realize at a young age, that the white kids and black kids, the Jewish kids and one Asian kid. We're all pretty much the same. Why the Asian disparity that we don't need more buses send a bus number seventeen full of Asians Smith told the graduates, how he launched his lucrative career is worth about five billion dollars range between four point four billion five billion. That's only a slight of about six hundred million dollars. So don't worry about it. They get them wides wise words on grit and success. Then he deviated from his prepared marks and he said, listen. This, this is this is a great story. A great American story, great story of capitalism and success. And, and he did Bill that and, and he can give away forty million dollars at a commencement address, because he wants to Robert, F Smith on behalf of eight. Generations of my family who have been in this country. We're to put a little fuel in your bus. This is my class twenty nineteen. Family is making a grant to eliminate this student loans. Nearly four hundred students paying off all their student loans. It's an all male school. So is this a sexist and must be attacked as being a sexist by the social Justice warriors, who will now demand that he go to an all female predominantly, African American school and pay all of their student loans off to, and I talked about this a little bit earlier on, but this is a big deal. Think about the students serving there are some students in this graduating class that worked their way through college and refuse to take loans and work all summer and got up early nose to the grindstone.
