Robert Caro on How He Does It
"Robert Carroll joins us now he is the Pulitzer Prize. Winning author of many books. New Book is called working researching interviewing and writing. He's also the author of the years of Lyndon Johnson four volumes of them thus far and the powerbroker Robert Moses and the fall of New York Bob. Thanks so much for being here. Pleasure to be here all right so everyone has been greatly anticipating a volume five of the years of Johnson. But instead you have written this other book working researching interviewing writing. Why did you decide to do this? Ever since the powerbroker I kept myself out of the book. I don't think the word I appears in there many times. If soon as the book came out people started asking me. What was it like ten of you Robert Moses and I realized that I should have put in something to tell people what that was like so for like forty five years. I've been hearing that question and people ask me what it's like to work in presidential libraries were. Can you find out from interviews? This isn't the adviced anybody but it's sort of. I said we'll I WANNA give people some glimpses into how I work so. I took time out to do this book now. I'm back doing the volume. I mean it's an interesting question about interviewing Robert Moses because you had read five sessions which women seven sessions with him. Which was very different from the Johnson. Biography where he was dead already for several years. Before you could get started and I'm curious you write about it a bit in working what the difference was like for you. Writing the book writing a biography of a person who was still alive versus writing a biography of someone who was already gone in one sense. It's great to write about someone who's still alive because you get to meet Moses. Didn't talk to me for the first couple of years of the book. Then we had seven interviews. Soon as I started asking questions. Pamela the interviews were over but they will long sessions and I really got to look at him with Johnson. You felt okay. I came along just too late. He had died just three years before was great about him was that he died so young he would have been only sixty seven when I started. He darted sixty four that everyone was still alive. He had I think twelve people in Johnson City High School. When he was there they were all there to be viewed. But you can't make up for not meeting and talking to the person writing about you just can't do feel that absence and working on the Johnson. Yes you do everything you can to overcome that you know you interview the people closest to him over and over and over again constantly asking them what was he like. If I was standing next to you what would I see him doing? So you try to get a feeling of him now. We have these telephone transcripts where you hear him talking hundreds and hundreds of hours you can listen to him talking and see how he deals with people and how he gets what he wants from people. That's always amazing to me. Has that changed the way that you've been doing your research having access to those types a change the writing of history in general like on the Gulf of Tonkin incident which has been sort of mystery. What really happened there. How many attacks were there? On our destroyers. You know that led Johnson to launch these launch bombing attacks on North Vietnam. Now you actually hear the communications between Robert McNamara. The Secretary of Defense Cincpac the admiral at Honolulu and the commander of the fleet. That's an in Viet Nam. You hear this and what was really going on in real time the other aspect of your interviewing that. I thought was so interesting that you write about in this new book working is the delicacy of interviews and especially when you get to touchy subjects. And they'll you didn't interview Johnson for the book did Interview Lady Bird and tell the story about how you and when you approached the subject of Johnson's longtime affair with Alice Marsh. Well when Johnson is in the Pacific during World War. Two year allowed easing Australia. You're allowed one telephone. Call the senator from Texas. Just Johnson has to decide whether to run again for the House of Representatives or to run for senator. I'm going through all the correspondents and suddenly in the middle of it. There is a telegram from someone sewing. Alice I've never heard of Alice. She appears in no book and it says Lyndon everyone else that happened to me in the White House. Everyone else thinks you should run for the Senate. I think you should run for the house. Please try to cool love Alice. I said WHO is Alice. Who was the person that he makes the only one telephone call? And who's giving political advice which he follows shortly after that? So that's you know. An example of going through the papers by luck her sister and best friend show up at the Johnson Library and ask to see me and I go down to see them and they say you know we wanna tell you about a woman named Alice Marsh. We don't want to portray to some Bimbo. She was really very important in Johnson's life. And they told me the whole story of this Lauren and significant relationship and his life. So how do you then? Ask Lady Bird. You know panel. That's the only interview I ever had in my life where I couldn't bring myself to look at the person I was interviewing. Alice was a small town girl. She turned herself into the brilliant Washington. Hostess Brilliant Brilliant Salons and she came from a little town called Morlin. Now no one would go to the mall. And unless they were looking for inflammation analysis a little town in the middle of nowhere and I never know I went up there and we learned about her. And how remarkable she was but all of a sudden we have a mutual friend. Who lived in Morlin? Who calls me in a panic and says the bird in Texas? Everybody Calls Lady Bird Bird. Bird and always. You've been in Marlin. So she knows you know about Al. Assad said well that had to be if it doesn't concern me but her secretary then shows up at my desk in the reading room says Mrs Johnson would like to see you out at the ranch this weekend. We had been meeting in her office so we sit down at the dining table. She's at the head of the table. I might her right. Hand my stenographer's notebook like like the one you use is is down on my right hand taking notes and without preamble. She starts to talk about Alice Quiz. How elegance she was how sophisticated she was how she taught. Linden things and everything that she taught him. He followed the rest of his life. You don't hear these lawn when she met him. He was this new congressman very awkward with Lorne Gang Leo Arms. She said turn them into an asset. Always wear shirts with French. Cuffs and very nice cufflinks. So when people's attention is cool to them it's called in in a in a good way. She told him. We're kind of Necktie to favor. Countess Myers Tie. But most of all at crucial elements in life. It was her advice that he followed an in a number of cases one in particular. It's not exaggerating. Very much to say she saved. His career is takes a moment to tell. But it's it's interesting his early careers financed by a very fierce huge Texas contractor. Herman Brown Brown and Root and Herman was prepared to keep financing his Roy and in return Johnson was getting huge contracts for Brown and root when all of a sudden they had a falling out Lyndon Johnson was getting them authorization to build a dam which they wanted but Linden wandered low. Rent Housing Project built in Boston in what was a very poor Mexican American neighborhood. The houses in that neighborhood were owned by Herman Brown. The tenants were paying rent to him. They were very profitable and he was enraged at Linden wanted to condemn them for his housing project and his chief lobbyist and his chief lawyer talked. Instead you know Herman was about to turn on Linden and when Herman turned on you he never turned back when Alice here is about this and invites them both down to Greatest Stadium Virginia. She sits down at her table. And says why don't you just compromise give Herman the damaging winds and the land and all of a sudden everything was okay. So Lady Bird starts talking not only about her elegance. She says the quotes are in the book. She was so sophisticated so beautiful. I remember her neck succession of wonderful beautiful dresses and me in well not so wonderful. And and then she said you know Lyndon Basically Linden always followed Alice's vice during that whole interview I have to say my head. Just stay down and I took notes. I couldn't look at her so that was done. The next week we went back to ordinary interview she just launched into it without you. Even though I you know I sometimes think I know something about politics. I'm really glad I don't have to write about. Women never understood why she did
Andrea DeLong-Amaya, Women Working in the World of Plants
"We continue cultivating places. Women's history month interviews. Were joined this week by Andrea Delong Amaya director of horticulture for the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center at the University of Texas. At Austin it is also the botanic garden for the State of Texas Andrea has been on staff for over twenty years and has more than thirty years of experience in horticulture. She Guides fifteen staff members in the design and management of nine acres of Native Plant Gardens. Two hundred and seventy five acres of natural areas and in native plant nursery. She teaches classes in native plant horticulture and writes and presents on her passion for the field widely. She spoke with US late. Last autumn to share more about the history and work of the centre including it. Being the legacy of another extraordinary woman ladybird Johnson Andrea shares. Her own enthusiasm for this field of work. Welcome Andrea Hi. How you doing? I'm great how are you wonderful? I'd love for you to start by describing describe the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center as visually as you can for listeners. Who may not have been there. And then we'll talk a little bit about your specific work there Andrea Sherr so we are in a South Austin and in the middle of Texas. We're in a part of the state that we refer to as Texas El country or the Edwards Plateau which is a beautiful beautiful part of the state. Of course Texans will say every part of the state is beautiful but I WANNA say text. The central Texas area is particularly beautiful especially in the spring were really renowned for having excellent wildflower displays including the Texas blue on it which occurs all over the state but the central Texas areas particularly flora for us in the spring. And so we are like I said in Austin and the site that were on is a public garden where about two hundred and eighty five acres. I think we actually added a little bit more In the last year or so and it's a public garden where we feature plants that are native to the state of Texas. That's the site now. The organization is bigger than that But the gardens here. We're demonstrating hell different. Native plants can be used in different kinds of landscapes different kinds of styles. We have collections of plants. From different parts of the State we are the Botanic Garden Texas. So we're trying to increase our collections to represent other parts of the state as well as the central Texas area so we have about nine acres of cultivated gardens and then we have a sixteen Acre Texas Arboretum of trees So those are the horticultural areas in then. We have natural areas in The other parts of the the property And that the natural areas also include some research areas. We have some Areas where we're doing Land Management prescribed fire treatments and different kinds of land-management to see how that influences the vegetation. Yeah we can talk more about that. If you're if you like definitely definitely I will i. I would love to get into some of the specifics of each of those areas you just described but before we get there. Describe your your your job there what it entails and may be the trajectory of your twenty years there. Andrea. Yeah well. I started as a gardener appropriately and really enjoy working outside. I mean I've always been interested in being outdoors and that goes way back to my childhood is probably most people who have an affinity for the natural world That usually starts childhood so I grew up doing things outdoors with my parents particularly with my dad. We'd go camping or canoeing. And I remember having a field guide of of wildflowers weeds that surrounded our area where we lived and that was great. Fun everything from astronomy to birds and lizards and insects. Just everything is so interesting And I just find that the more I learn about things the more I'm fascinated and in awe of the natural world so that's just started early but it's just been a long a lifelong interest in learning more and observing more. I mean I laugh. We have a big picture window at our dining room table. And that's our TV. We don't have an actual electronics of the Inter House. It's overlooking a garden and pond and we just sit there and watch the animal antics and what's blooming and it's great fun and it's a nice way to slow down in our fast paced world That's a that's a big part of what I think. Nature does for me and for a lot of people So you started as a gardener. What year was that Andrea and then tell us about the progression of your rules at the Center Which clearly you progressed in because of your deepening curiosity and ever expanding knowledge base. Yes so I started in December of nine hundred ninety eight and Worked as a gardener I've guarded in most of the areas that we have in Under cultivation over the years and at some point we had Position of gardens manager was available so I moved into that and then I don't know maybe fifteen years ago I transitioned into the direct report culture and Unfortunately that means a little bit less guarding than I used to do. But it also gets me in a higher level of designing decision making which is very exciting and allows me to have more influence over some of the bigger picture things that are happening And then overseeing the natural areas arboretum and the nurseries also been pretty pretty fun and adds different interest to what what I'm looking at. Yeah so talk about Before we get into the specifics of some of the programmatic areas and display areas there and then the research give listeners. A history of the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center when it started what it's original mission in scope was of course the wonderful woman for whom it is named and by whom it was founded in its original iteration and So that that people have an understanding of just how much bigger is then. A Garden appreciating wildflowers. Because that is a fabulous mission but it's it is much bigger than that so we're very blessed to have had the visionary Labor Johnson as founder. She founded the wildflower center. Initially as the wildflower research center. The National Welfare Research Center and that was an endeavor that she took on with her friend and actress. Helen Hayes which a lot of people don't remember that part of of the history but it's Kinda Funny Mrs Johnson didn't feel like she had enough name. Recognition Systems of Helen Hayes. And so her mission right from the beginning was to really try to understand an unlocked the secrets of wildfires in native plants and understand how they grow and that was the original research. The the wildflower center did at that time and so that was a nineteen eighty two so the organization started back. Then we moved to our current site as a public garden Before it was more just a research site with some portables but it didn't really have botanical garden kind of exhibits. Someone moved to Our current site in one thousand nine hundred ninety five that was really a big focus of making the space Amenable to guests and having exhibits that people can interact with and having educational programming and really elaborating on that when she first started it. Why we'll just remind listeners? She was of course the first lady of the United States and she Had A as firstly. She had some remarkable initiatives to beautify. I think was the word that was used then. roads and highways across the country and she was taken by the wildflower diversity there in her home state for good reason. Because it's a pretty remarkable native flora. Will you talk a little bit about that? And and why people thought this was not just a pretty project but was worthy of deep research. Even at that time so yeah. Mrs Johnson grew up in a rural setting and without siblings so she was a long time so her best friend is. A child was outside Just the outdoors and I think that was what what instilled upon in her the scrape passion for the for the natural world and then as she became first lady She really had a great influence on President Johnson in terms of Passing legislation one of the things he's known for is the beautification. Act The highway beautification. Act and getting billboards off of the roadsides and cleaning up roadsides and planting wildflowers and the way I understand it you know we talk about it is being beautification and she knew at the time. She was very savvy that at the time. She knew that that was a word that would engage people. The public secretly I. I've heard that she felt like that was actually kind of a word and that it is she. I think she understood. It was deeper than just beautification was away to connect people with the idea that she

"Stuff to talk about in the news today and of course it's the continuing saga of the Boeing seven thirty seven Max the sad story that keeps on giving during this Christmas season a Boeing has announced their halting production they what they call it temporarily suspending production on the plane which sending ripples through the industry not to mention the stock market because so many suppliers are affected by this so many airlines think about this Boeing has five thousand orders for the plane there are four hundred plus planes sitting on the ground that they've built but they finished they can't deliver and in the world of airline finance Boeing doesn't get paid until the plane is actually delivered the proverbial keys being handed over and none of that's happening of course to listen to Boeing over the past couple of months you would think the plane will be flying by now if you were listening to me over the past few months you know that's not gonna happen too many regulators overseas claiming that they don't trust the FAA that they don't want to wait to just rubber stamp and F. A. A. re certification so we're gonna wait and believe it or not the strangest thing happened earlier this week the head of the FAA sat down with the head of Boeing and said here's a little news bulletin your schedule is not our schedule so based on that Boeing had to come to the realization it's going to take awhile and therefore they're holding production it's a big hit on everybody not to mention a number of airlines that depend and on that plane to fly a lot of the roots like Norwegian now United got about twenty four of them so to southwest sores American southwest already claimed a loss of revenue from Boeing and they settled but they're a lot more cases out there that have yet to be settled the store is not going away anytime soon and my prediction now as it's been for the last six months is that the Boeing seven thirty seven Max will not be flying paying passengers before April or may and it'll be interesting to see how all that comes about since the European regulators are saying that they're going to rate their to recertify the plane on their schedule so put yourself in the in the shoes of Mrs Johnson in Cleveland is she gonna wanna fly on a plane that's banned in forty countries around the world I don't think so the optics here are disastrous now will the plane fly again my prediction is absolutely well I've flown again absolutely but the important thing here are the lessons we've learned and the lessons we better apply and right now the FAA has a lot to learn and a lot to apply so for that matter does blowing up and it's not going to get better for awhile it just isn't some other things to talk about two veteran flight attendants made the news this week one is a woman that I actually did a story on that she was the oldest flight attendants at United Airlines who seniority number was number one her name was Norma heap at the age of forty season five or sixty two years of the age of eighty three she just retired this week of so congratulations to her I should tell everybody that while there is an age limit for pilots that sixty five there is no age limit for flight attendants as long as they can pass all safety tests so that was cool end up nor was a great lady and goes back to the days when service matter so I hope she's gonna have a wonderful retirement and all those strings fun she took off the plane no just kidding speaking of the coupons off the plane on the flip side of that story is the delta airlines story of another senior flight attendant who was fired she seventy nine years old for stealing milk wow now she claims she had a perfect attendance record was always written up as the exemplary flight attendant but she got fired anyway and one argument she's making as well the reason why she thinks she got fired was that she was earning get this two hundred fifty thousand dollars a year well if you gonna fly the age of seventy nine and you fly secure let's say eighteen I think you deserve your interesting to see how that court case comes out the case of the two hundred fifty thousand dollar stolen milk were allegedly stolen milk so there you have now I would be remiss if I didn't also talk about stupid things in the news yeah there's a higher hotel I'm not making a joke about this there's a Hyatt hotel there is no charging you extra if you want to use a desk in your room that's right they're charging you extra okay that's crazy enough and then some people will do anything to fly with their pets and this is the best one of all happened in Russia is a guy flying from Riga to a lot of our stock via Moscow with his cat Victor and on the flight from regular Moscow he took his calendar carrier without issue however we want to fly from Moscow to Lana Bostock his cat was waived by the gate agents and it turns out this cat was one big cat and therefore he was forbidden to fight with the cat unless she paid excess baggage and put the cat in the cargo hold well he wasn't about to do that so he devised a plan he re booked for travel the next day and here's what he did he borrowed somebody else's cat just to check in for the flight so the cat would be wait and then on the way to the plane he swapped cats where it didn't quite work and guess what he was a he got in trouble anyway three of the overweight cat listen folks we're seeing new rules all the time for the department of transportation and none too soon about emotional support animals what qualifies as one and the days of the parents and ferrets and cockatoos and peacocks and snakes may be coming to an end up hopefully by the end of January the US department of justice will come out with unilateral across the board rules not leave it to individual airlines to determine who's fido and whose fluffy and allow the rest of us to fly unencumbered on flights without the emotional support donkey the computing you know I'm not up and now given the Holy Spirit a lot of relationships are you know coming to an end during the holidays but nobody wants to break up during the holidays they just one which will next year well there's a great story here and there's and there's a lesson here to up what interested she's nineteen years old she was breaking up with boyfriend and she found all his love letters and decided to incinerate them however she tried to use a butane lighter and they couldn't they wouldn't in light so she left them on.

Of course she said Daddy because he was the one he was giving stuff every day over the fence so she read a great with grandfather lived with him and he oh when I think of it is just horrendous out sometime. He realized that he was incapable of looking after this this child so so he put her in one of those gray buildings in an orphanage so she grew up your mom grew up in and then she stayed till she was sixteen and she was taught to do samplers so clean wash to do all that domestic stick stuff and at sixteen she was put up to service and eventually she found a way to dial in which she decided she was going to set up a business as a as a dressmaker she was a very good seamstress. My mother and it was wild. She was out there that she did a trip to cans and sorry teller lie she didn't she went to This Day island now why she went to those day island but and that's where she met Daddy and whenever he and his his brother brother my uncle frank were going up to to T._i..

What was the name of they form this <hes> this music company called the tropical troubadours and they travel all around the north and really had tremendous potential? I wish I brought some photographs it just absolutely fantastic and at that time a lot of the people in that in that group were related there were chasms. Oh second cousins brothers or whatever whatever and three of the women one of him was my mother they were married and I got pregnant naturally so the show had to come to a close so then after some time mommy thought Mommy was cleaning that he was cane-cutting. He was a weekend husband. The man was working as a house Zoya she was she was amazing. She did everything and dress making and and grandma laundry during the war for the American servicemen Oh you name it so she thought we'd better do something here because there's nothing there's nothing for people like us to do because they weren't accepted at the white dancers. There was just nothing so anyway they started to club and we've had I think the most unfortunate name was called the colored social clubs offers so un-imaginative but they formed a proper committee and they did everything and and what sort of choice would be on they had dances. They started ended up with Saturday night dancers. They had the first American Jazz Band East come and play Jordan Roscoe.

Daddy would have done the music and the costumes remember in you the costume okay. What did they wait for the Hawaiian grass goods that were made out of rope and I can remember the verandah rounder of as being strung up these this rope was strung up all the way and daddy and his buddies would have come in they were teasing all this rope and like MC MC grammy waistband if you can imagine and so the rope who's just ideal because we have lovely weights would swing and I show they did was was an Hawaiian night and I would have been about seven and myself and my cousin Dulcie who was one of the children who was born from the tropical tributo days? He's so anyway she she and I came on as attendance and this enormous rose was carried on by these gorgeous gorgeous tar straight island men flanked by the hula dancers right so the Rosewood was lowered and Dulcie and I were data and we pulled down the pedals and from it emerged my sister well you can imagine the gas would come and see these.

It was the first time I ever ever wore makeup and put my hair up. My mother made Corduroy Navy blue suit with a little cream color and shoes it had heels honestly I thought I was twenty seven. I wasn't those fifteen or sixteen and the reason they did that was because the examiner probably would fail to me on the grounds of my being too young and therefore not having an understanding or a passion for the music so anyway the bluff work tonight via.

"Thomas. That's how is the weather forecast. Does something you've taught me coach the market's really are unpredictable as the weather can be, you know, as well as I do what it does around here. We can't control the weather Kelly. Certainly not control what the market does. Either. Can't we, but we can be prepared wouldn't get educated. So educators paramount in the financial it's also in the world. When you see it raining outside. Do you say to yourself? Of course, you say self umbrella today. Would you see unstable financial future? Advisor could trust people just know, they're not in the right place. But keep doing the same thing over and over again, how different salts Albert Einstein called the true definition of insanity. Very it's not gonna get any better. If it's not doing good right now is it. So we want to go through the mental process of understanding and reasoning behind each strategy that people are making. So I thought we talk about a four step process in the financial world that we go through with everyone. Explain why we do it very important because you know, the more, you know, the more you understand the more comfortable, you could be win the markets face challenges because they're going to face challenges, and our plans are put a tests. I mean when the market star going bananas, you need to make sure your plan is just as good as it was before and your planners, you confidence your plan to and within a minute wanna take a again, look at these four steps number one is discovery. This very first meeting when we have with people. It's we begin the stage with our initial meeting with people to get the no one another. We see. Hey, I'm Marty Hensley. I'm coach Pete. You're. Is Mr. MRs Johnson. Let's see what we have in common. Let's see what we don't have in common. We can reach an agreement that it's pretty good. Sometimes not have everything in common. Right. That's right now is very true. Iron sharpens iron. Yeah. Well, you know, what me and mardi you're in our fifties. And you're over there, and you're thirty. So we have we don't have the agent common. But from each other absolutely without a doubt, very conversational. So it's not we don't want to leave the headache. So the very first thing we do is focused on you. And what you want your savings and investments to do if got this money. And then the way like to do this this the net. Okay. And the reason why we have our money here is this isn't that? Okay. Accents or not right, mardi, exactly. What are your goals and objectives? And how can we get quickly as possible with at least one of the things Thomas? We do is we focus in discuss past experiences and feelings of the future. Coach because a lot of those past experiences really can determine what we're doing right now. Yeah. Well, and again, if in our discussion, it allows both of us, you listener who comes into see us and me and Marty planners allows us to determine if there's a basis for a continued relationship or not. You don't like us, and we don't like you. There's no reason to wait. We love ninety nine percent of the people that come in to see us. And then we go through something KOTA strategic development process. It's a strategy meeting. Basically the primary of here of this stage is to develop an effective strategy. That is custom tailored to the unique needs of each and every person who comes in. That's a novel concept evidently because a lot of people are saying gosh. So first time anyone's ever asked me these questions to understand way to understand what this things are. But when I talk about the easy to understand financial review that we do put everything on one page. We really mean it. That's right. Really do it. And it really is easy to understand. It doesn't have to be complex. That's right. We'll see how these things fit hand in hand. You're sitting there having that discovering meeting discovering what people's passions are with their objectives are, and then you're showing them how to achieve that. My dad is a physics professor. I can't tell physics from from chemistry. But he knows what he's doing right or financial guy. So we need to make sure we're on the same page. We can understand each other doing allow the meetings here custom tailor the unique needs to each client. What they want very very important because unfortunately, many people are in the wrong place and don't realize this, right? And maybe it's because they didn't have this conversation with advisor mardi or maybe they didn't understand what the adviser was saying. That's what happens many times. Yesterday, sixty six years old. He said this was the first time that I've ever had a conversation like this. Yeah. So after we have the conversation. It's a good one. It's very informative innocent of lightning many times we then develop a comprehensive plan that outlines the strategy. We recommend it for this concept to long term success. Tomorrow in NAFTA that I don't know. Let's look at your whole life. Let's plan to one Twenty-one. That's okay. Wow. When we say lifetime income, we mean lifetime income. That's right. If you had to be one fifty get still get income while using a bucket strategy that we put together its lifetime income planning for a reason because it has to last your entire lifetime. And it's so true coach. I mean, I'm sitting here. I have a grandmother who's eighty nine. She's going to be turning ninety years old right this year. And she is she she outpaces sixty five year old income takes on an obvious important stunned mardi don't have it. You really realize how important it is. Right. We need to make sure that after years of economic uncertainty. Many retirees would like their income to be more predictable and more secure we need to make sure that we get the right plan for the right person and turning assets into income. No can be very complicated. And there's three questions that everyone asks that we go through with you. We basically help you answer these questions we ask an answer. Like, they do with the attorney says, I ask your honor, Ken income be made more certain. That's that's the number one question. Okay. Based on what I have. Here. My financial plan the money. I've saved all my 4._0._1._K's TSP's, my everything thrift savings four three Bs can the money that I've put aside can I have that in income that I'll never outlive. And can that be a certain income that I know exactly what it's going to be more? If we mardi. We are on the underside. In other words, we may tell you're going to have less than you really going to have in a future. Not the other way around. The worst thing to do is for a say. Yeah, you're gonna have twenty thousand a month when you retire. You get retirement Thomas you've got nine thousand. No, no, no. Thousand a month, and you may end up with twenty five thousand a month. Yeah. Come in complaining to us. I don't think. So that's why we use our illustrations the way we do we use real world numbers back fifteen twenty years. We don't use hypotheticals where we're assuming a lot that just cannot be relied on now the financial termites. Again, we're gonna talk about them can income have built in tax advantages. So we build as most tax efficiency as possible in each plan tax efficiency, just major paying as little taxes legally possible. Yeah, that's the way to do it the question. Can it be safe yet grow over time? These are questions. Everyone needs to right now. Again, Ken income made more certain can I have a certain income that I know is going to be there for the rest of my life. Very important. I think that's the most important absolute number two can income have built intact vantage, another one. That's the questions you ask planner. They'll say, oh, well based on what's happening the past in the market, and as long as the market does this and that and and Prince Charles done, everything it'd be no as long as I want guess, it's guaranteed here. It is writing and nothing's ever going to happen. But you're gonna get your check. You're going to go to the mailbox. It'll be a green flag on the mailbox of very novel. Green flag waving into win. Green flag as a check in there. Right. Red flag means you're paying bills. We want the green flecks retirement in the third question. Can it be safe very important yet grow over time? Now this. If you could bear in the backyard safe as long as you have a shotgun. Your garden in the backyard, you money say exactly like we were saying earlier, you could throw it in a CD eventually lose money to inflation and all these other things. Yeah. Had a lady one one year came at she had twelve different CDs from nine different banks. Okay. And answered the age old question that we remember since grade school. Why did the chicken cross the road to get a higher CD rate at a different Bank? So it's just making sure you have the right plan for the right time your life and Morty. I think that a lot of times the advisers that people have met with have charged them a fee to put a plan together. Then the people feel obligated to go back to that. Because I paid for something. Right. But these plans people have paid for and your opinion. Could you have done the same thing at no cost for these people? What we could have done in this one of the most frustrating things for us is that we see we want to go back over the last ten fifteen twenty years as gosh. What could we have saved them? If we had had this conversation twenty years ago, and that's exactly right. They feel like they need to go back to their current advisor because they wanna get quote unquote, their bang for the buck. And another question, we are licensed to accept fees. If somebody wants to pay a fee, and they feel like they're getting a better plan. We are more than happy. I don't see any Cincinnati. Again, doesn't make any sense, Tom. Here's what I wanna do. This is very important. We we can do your very own strategy session based on what we've talked about here answering those three questions for you. Make sure you have the true strategic development process done out perfectly. If you're one of the next thirty callers, we'll custom create for you that one page financial review that Mark talked about this will indicate if you're in need of a full-blown financial plan or not and keep keep in mind this review along with the bucket strategy and all the planning his fifteen hundred dollars value. Well, and we're going to give it away again to the next thirty caller. So get ready folks warm that phone to pick it up. We're gonna give away complimentary with no obligation to the next.

She told the post that they did not recall the incident in the RV and denied reacting and the manner which Johnson has described in the lawsuit Johnson's whose background was an event planning and human resources voted for Democrats in previous election cycles. However, she was intrigued by the possibility of working on the campaign of a relatively unknown political out. Outsider like the defendant. Trump the lawsuit states prior to being hired Johnson says she first met Trump in November fifteen at Birmingham, Alabama rally at the first encounter Johnson allegedly. She engaged in inappropriate behavior. She's claiming when Johnson walked up to introduce yourself to Trump. He allegedly looked her up and down and said, oh, beautiful beautiful fantastic. Johnson was hired in January sixteen but after the access Hollywood tape was publicized October of sixteen Johnson sought legal counsel for guidance over the RV incident about a week after the tapes released Johnson's quit Johnson quit the campaign. The lawyer alternate decided not take the case, according to the lawsuit at our former lawyers arrangement Johnson saw a therapist. She continued to fill considerable emotional distress. Because of the force kissing and had nightmares about the lawsuit claims the lawsuit. Also claims Johnson did not receive fair compensation claiming she was vastly underpaid. When compared to her former marriage male colleagues on the campaign, MS Johnson was also underpaid compared to similar qualified and less qualified male staffers lawsuit states, she had not know, this fact until very recently miss Johnson's experience is not isolated. Indeed, the campaign engaged in systematic gender discrimination in pay against its female employees. The lawsuit states the White House has been asked for. Comment. Kaley mcenaney national press secretary for the Trump campaign said in a statement, the Trump campaign has never discriminated based on race, ethnicity, gender or any other basis and the allegations suggesting otherwise is off base and unfounded. Johnson's Washington-based attorney who decided to take the case told CNN that Johnson is coming out publicly with allegations of sexual misconduct against President Trump because she decided that she couldn't be silent anymore. She tried higher lawyer meeting after the access Hollywood tape came out after the lawyer decided it was basically too big of a case for them. And they weren't going to take it on she decided to try to move on with her life. But after Trump's election, sh she her new attorney says Johnson has been overcome with a sense of guilt and responsibility for any Roche may have played in helping Trump win the election. Johnson has been particularly upset about the Trump administration's policies affecting migrant families. Her attorney also said to CNN court. I think that I think the thing that moves her most was seeing the four separations, she's a mother and feels very deeply about that. And was very mostly affected personally affected by seeing Trump put young children and put them in cages. The lawsuit says she side that she couldn't be silent anymore. And her attorney said his client is only one in a long line of victims. Donald trump's. Activities quote, unlike so many of the other victims, she's the only one with the ability to see him directly for his sexual misconduct. The other lawsuits have been for defamation or some of the victims haven't been able to bring any lawsuits at all because they've been barred by statute of limitations for that reason. I think she uniquely situated to hold him accountable for an actual act of sexual assault. The attorney added that with the launch of this lawsuit. Johnson is resigned to the fact that she is likely to be criticized by all sides. She knows as an African American woman who worked on the campaign and now coming out against Trump. She probably going to take it from both sides. But she's ready to stand up and take responsibility for what she did. Johnson is now focused on doing what she can to hold him accountable for his sexist and racist conduct. According to the post three months after hiring. The attorney last year Johnson moved to seal a year old court case in which to family members Saudi temporary restraining order against her and was enjoined in the request to seal the records by family members. On some of the reporting in the posts about her relatives in Georgia. The attorney said it was silly sideshow. And then everybody is on good terms. Now, referring to your own family. It had restraining orders against her. On some of the reporting in the post about her relatives, Georgia. They said, quote, it's a private family matter, adding it's totally irrelevant to her case asked why Johnson her family took the action to seal those records, her attorney said through a spokesman that it was to protect the privacy of her family. So that is the latest that we have on this case. I'll let you decide what you think about these claims. There's this is all the information that we have about these claims at this point. But I wanted to let you know about it. We've got a lot more to talk about today on the show. But that is certainly the breaking news also Democrats have just passed a Bill to fund college for illegal immigrants with tax payers money and that same Bill. They're now looking to make the law of the land from the federal government's perspective. I'm going to have the news on that coming up next on the Ben Ferguson show. So if you're ready to pay for legal immigrants to go to college, you'll be excited about this. If you're not ready get ready because it may cost you millions and millions of tax dollars to accomplish this all that ahead on the bench. Jason show six hundred WABC and ninety two point one FM if you need a new roof or a roof repaired, there's a lot of companies that you can call and a lot of them will give you great prices.

"It is not there are many deals where you can get in with zero down are three and a half down or three percent down. So talk to me at love to talk to you about that. But the Smiths they were very clever they made money each month because their son actually rented out two of the rooms in that house to other students in the rent that those other two students were paying more than paid the mortgage payment so kudos to the Smiths for really making a winning play on buying that property down there instead of renting they made money each month, and Tom they built equity and their son built his credit at the same time to who do you know that could use this smart strategy for their college student. Let's talk. So, you know, and we're talking about colleges a lot. It reminds me of yet another client. I know I'm telling these stories, I'm not using the real names or anything, but we're gonna call this couple, Mr. and MRs. Johnson. Now, they managed to get their kids through college their kids already gotten through college. But it took all of their savings. And now, they were just drowning in debt the this kept compound in, you know, if you don't only credit cards, if you don't pay the balance off these balances are like a snowball, they just keep snowballing, and before you know, it you're paying double digit interest on double digit growing tests. You know, that's where the Johnsons were. But just recently they were blessed with their first grandchild. What was the problem here? Well, the Johnsons wanted to spend time and money on their grandchild. And they knew their grandchild and five or six years was gonna want to go to DisneyWorld and make some memories and they wanted to go with with them, but they were strapped with debt with no end in sight. They came into my office with a plan to gradually pay off the big bills. I but on that plan their grandchild would be grown by the time the dead released its chokehold on them. Here's what the Johnsons wanted first. They wanted to get their mortgage paid often less than fifteen years since that's all that was left on their mortgage second they wanted to get rid of the big balanced student loans. I they had done for their children. Like, some of these football coaches strategies, the Johnsons ended up doing the opposite of what they originally thought. But they scored big instead of trying to pay off the big student loans. I we got rid of we got rid of nineteen hundred dollars in monthly payments that were choking the Johnsons cashflow, we paid off about sixty six thousand of those debts, plus the existing mortgage they had for about one hundred and twenty-five by refinancing their home and pulling that cash out, but we had to extend the mortgage back to thirty years. Instead of fifteen said that the Johnsons could afford the payment now at first it looked like they were having to give up ground because they went back to a thirty year loan. But here's where. The brilliance of their playing really became real they committed to use half of the nineteen hundred dollars per month toward regular that. They had saved. This is savings per month, by the way. They used half of that to start making prepayments two principal on their new mortgage. And we set that up on a little amortization schedule. So it was easy and at their request. I did that Amer does Asian schedule. But guess what they were still getting their mortgage paid off in less than fifteen years even those at thirty year loan because by getting rid of sixty six thousand dollars worth of compounding double digit other debt by doing that cash-out refinance they took half of the nineteen hundred. And when they started prepaying that amount every month on that thirty year loan it turned out that there were gonna pay their mortgage off still in less than fifteen years. That is fantastic. Hey for the Johnsons. I mean, they freed three up their stranglehold and now they were already thinking about that DisneyWorld trip a few years from now with their grandchild. That's fantastic. It really is. Well, you know, Tom, I'm sitting here. And I've just have so many customers that are heroes in my mind, and in they have really they really come to the table knowing what they want, and we just helped them brainstorm look at numbers and programs and possibilities. They're really the ones who are the ones he step out there and do it. I mean there that he wrote, but they come to you with a problem, and you try to solve it. I've got another one. I just got to share this one is about Wendy waiver. Now, I know this lady personally, it's not a real name. Let me introduce you to her. She's a single mom recently, divorced and still in college trying to earn her counseling degree. She was trying to get a degree as a counselor. She really needed to get her degree in counseling in order to do what she loved to do. But also so that she could make enough money to support her to elementary school aged children, but the child support from the father was not enough to make this possible. You know, there's a saying necessity is the mother of invention, well, which certainly held true for Wendy waiver. She went on to search her area where she was living for a cheaper apartment. She couldn't buy right now because she didn't she wasn't in a position to buy. But she found a a large seven room apartment in an apartment house that needed some plumbing repairs and major cleanup major cleanup, even to get it habitable Wendy made a deal with the landlord. She had a friend of hers come over and fix the plumbing. And she said, look, I'll clean all polish all paint the apartment in exchange for a three year lease at half the market rent. Well, the landlord agreed immediately. And Wendy moved in. And that three years was the time. She had left on her college to graduate, the landlord. Agreed Wendy moved in rented two of the extra rooms in that apartment to university students and that helped her afford to stay in school. Get her degree. She eventually all she eventually bought her own home after she graduated and got settled she bought her own home in an area where she could raise chickens and have eggs to trade and sell on this. This lady was an inspiration because she thought outside the box she made it. So that everywhere she ever lived. She was ever whatever live.
