AOC Confronts Troll Calling Her His 'Favorite Big Booty Latina'

"I don't know if you guys know who prom times Stein is if you look him up on the YouTube piece of comedian and he's incredibly funny and he is the biggest conservative troll ever. And I love it because he started trolling at city council meetings, I believe city council meetings where he would go and he would give ridiculous rap songs. He would play these characters and do all types of things in these meetings where the city's required to allow citizens to speak. And that's how he would be able to convey his messages of disdain or messages of necessary improvement for the city. He would convey them those videos will be entertaining and go viral. Now he's taking a troll into another level because now he's flying to D.C. and he's trolling people and he's exposing the Democrats and finally we have somebody on our side that's willing to be a massive troll against the left is lunatics. So I want y'all to see how him and AOC kind of bump heads. I believe she was walking to the capitol building and he said some things to her that I thought was absolutely hilarious, given the fact that he's a comedian, it was the perfect troll to get AOC to engage. And then we're going to listen to what AOC said about the interaction and how she plays the victim every time words are coming out of her mouth. Let's play the first clip with prom's time Stein. AOC, my favorite big booty Latina. I love you, AOC. You're my favorite. She wants to kill babies, but she's still beautiful. You look very beautiful in that dress. You look very sexy. Look at that booty on AOC. That's my favorite big booty Latina. My favorite AOC, nice to meet you ASC. Look how sexy she looks at that dress. Oh, I love it, AOC.

John Zmirak Reacts to SCOTUS Strike Down of New York Gun Law

"Meer agz. John, today is Friday the 24th of June. And as we're recording this, we don't know whether the Supreme Court will release its ruling that effectively ends roe V wade. But we do know that has to happen either today or Monday, I think. Yeah, they certainly have the tortured us with suspense, but yesterday they issued a decision, which is every bit as important. Yesterday, and I would say every bit as pro life. Yesterday, the Supreme Court said that the constitution means what it says in the Second Amendment. My hope is that today they're going to say the constitution doesn't mean what it doesn't say, which is anything about the right to kill your baby for sexual convenience. But let's look at the first half of that. New York State, where you live, where I used to live, makes it almost impossible to carry a gun from your own self protection. Unless you are friends with the member of the city council or Holly Hollywood star with a second home in New York or a corporate CEO or somebody with political connections or if you're a diamond dealer. Basically, if you don't deal in diamonds or have political connections, you can not carry a gun. So all the people who live in crime red neighborhoods in New York are out of luck. At best, when they need help in two minutes, the police will be there in ten minutes. And we'll draw a nice chalk circle around their body. This is not consistent with an important document that a lot of liberals don't know about called the United States Constitution

Jack Posobiec Discusses the Inexcusable Inaction of the Uvalde Police

"On the cutting edge of what's happening and you've all day. I think this is important for two reasons. Number one, we should always care about the truth, always. But number two, I think that it's important when it comes to our gun control debate right now. Because if we look at Yuval day as the facts actually show us, this has very little to do about gun purchasing or red flag laws, and a lot more about a police failure to intervene. What are your thoughts? Well, one of the big things that people need to understand about you validity, and it's actually something that even in the initial reporting. And this is something where I do have to ask for forgiveness on because when this all happened, I was over in Davos, Switzerland, I'm going up and down the Alps, where getting detained, we went to Ukraine. I come back. And that's what I really was able to start sinking my teeth into the details here. Then yesterday, the Texas Department of Public Safety comes out. That's the head of the Texas police and they start releasing these documents based on the timeline based on some of the 9-1-1 calls, the dispatcher calls with the local chief. And so now we've been able to dig through those documents to dig through this hearing. And one thing that I think everybody needs to understand is that this guy Pete arradondo, one of the names you need to memorize in this is Pete arradondo. Originally, the way it was being reported, I think a lot of people had the misunderstanding that he was the chief of police for all of you validated. It's not true. He's actually the chief of police for the validity ci DS, the consolidated independent or CIA SD school district. So he's the chief of police just for that school. That is his sole duty, his sole responsibility, and it's a 6 man force that is directly assigned for the security of that school. They're brought on by the school board, and then that's, of course, working in conjunction with the city council. But this really is a situation where he had one charge and that was the defense of this school. And so when

"I mean, they're complaining about everything. You had the progressive city council in Memphis, and they said, no security for Donald Trump. We're not going to be providing any police, and you know what that's okay. I think Memphis police would have done a great job, but they weren't even asked to. The south haven police department. They kick butt. I mean, they had it all, I mean, it was pretty impressive. The security setup they had. But the city council said we don't want him here. They said, we would provide, as a matter of fact, I called him out on it. Some guy named JB smiley, but he's always got a frown on this. I'm about to say it's not a very fitting name. And some guy named martavius, what's his face? Nobody cares about his last name. He's a loser. So anyway, you got these two black city council, guys. And they're bashing Trump saying we don't want to provide him security. And so I called him out, grace baker, on social media. And I said, well, okay, fine. What about Obama? Well, of course we would provide security for Obama. If Obama came to town. I'd say so it's about race. All right, I just want to make sure we're all on the record there. I'm pretty sure it was all crickets after that.

Y'all came muster up enough, staffing to protect young women from a sexual predator manipulating young women in gymnastics, but somehow y'all are still talking about January 6th.

"Alex Stein. If you haven't heard of him prime time, 99 Alex Stein, Jackson. I can't even see that on the radio. I'm already going crazy, Morgan. Oh my goodness. Well, thank you. Thank you for taking time. If you're very busy day, you're a small businessman, and an Internet sensation apparently. So praise B, thank you for joining. That is true. And as my sister and Christ, I appreciate being here. And let me tell you something. Being a viral sensation is not easy. It's a lot of pressure and a lot of people have been like, oh, Alex, you know, it's congratulations on all your success or your viral videos. Going viral is a terrible thing Morgan because now I'm like, what am I gonna do next? I've already worn women's swimwear to a city council meeting and like I'm literally gonna have to jump in a fire and light myself on fire next. I just don't know the pressure is it's overwhelming sometimes. Oh my God, okay, so if people are listening and are aware, he's very satirical. And that's the whole point, Alex Stein is hilarious and goes and makes fun of the crazy lefties, the wokeness at city council meetings and government public hearings where you can speak directly to your representatives. And so Alex don't hate me, but I have a clip that I want to show of you and the women's bathing suit. So if we could play that producers. Hello, how are you guys doing, counsel? So my name is Alexandria Stein. And I'm here today to call out transphobia here in Plano. I'm currently being restricted from swimming in the city of planet swim league against the women, even though it's clear that I reassigned my gender last week, like for example, do I look like a man? Obviously a not. This is a woman, but they're not going to let me swim and compete against the ladies because they're transphobia. So what I need you guys to do is I need you to wake up. We have champions like Leah Thomas. She's an NCAA champion. The best swimmer in college today. I can't get a scholarship unless I'm able to send a recruiting tape to these colleges. So they say, oh, oh, you have an unfair advantage Alexandria. What looks like? Does this look like an unfair advantage to you? Alex, can you explain what that was there? Okay, Morgan. So what that is, that's a crazy man that was dropped on his head as a child that has a lot of social issues and what he decided was is he going to do what is called culture jamming is and where we take the most absurd parts of our culture and we jam it in the public's face to try to bring awareness to how crazy the world has become.

"Yesterday there was a kind of conflict when it came to describing Vladimir Putin, cut 79, Joe Biden labels, Vladimir Putin, a war criminal, play cut 79. Now, if the story is true, again, if, because there's been a lot of misinformation and disinformation around this topic, it's hard to disagree with the statement saying that Putin is a war criminal. Now I think he misheard somebody or I don't know, his aides corrected him on this. But there's this story that is coming out in the last couple of days about this bombing campaign of this mere Paul theater. Quote, children were spelled out on two sides of the Mari Paul theater before bombing, satellite images show. Basically, they wrote children on both sides of the theater. Now, this might be a true collection of events, or it might be another snake island of ghost of Kyiv. New satellite images from Maxar technologies show that on Monday, the word children was spelled outside of the theater that the maripa city council was bombed on Wednesday. The city council said that on Wednesday, the Russian forces had quote purposefully and cynically destroyed the drama theater in the heart of marital, the plane had dropped a bomb on a building, where hundreds of Mari Paul residents were hiding. So I don't really see how anyone could see that and not believe that is not just immoral, but what a war criminal would

"To max politics. This is Ben max from Gotham gazette, a publication of citizens union foundation. Thanks so much for tuning in here for this episode of the show. A really good conversation ahead this week on the podcast today. We're talking about charter schools in New York City. The growing and complicated and controversial and fascinating and in many ways successful sector of privately run public schools that now accounts for well over 10% nearing 15% of New York City public school enrollment New York City school enrollment has dipped a bit over the last few years. There may be some pandemic adjustments to school enrollment that have affected things that we might see a correction to in the next year or two, but the growth in charter schools has continued and we are going to talk today with James Merriman, the longtime CEO of the New York City charter school center and we have a lot to get to with James. New York City charter school is now educate more than 140,000 students in the city in more than 270 schools. So a lot to dig into with James Merriman in just a second. If you've missed any recent episodes of the show, you can find them all at max politics wherever you get podcasts or at the Gotham gazette website. We have them all there. Recent guests have included New York City controller Brad lander. We caught up with him about his first 6 or so weeks on the job and his reaction to mayor Eric Adams initial preliminary budget and much more really interesting conversation with controller Brad lander recently. Also recently a conversation with a couple of stakeholders in the growing cryptocurrency industry talking about what is cryptocurrency, why mayor Adams wants New York City to be a center for the industry, some of the New York regulations at play and some of the questions around cryptocurrency in New York and beyond. Also recently on the show I've had some very interesting conversations with new city council members here in New York City who chair important committees. I gathered the three new chairs of the city council's committees on health, mental health and hospitals for a discussion about their priorities taking over those committees. Obviously, they're important issues and committees any time, but of course, particularly as we are still amid the COVID pandemic and trying to get through it. So that was a very interesting conversation with city council members, Lynn schulman, Mercedes and Linda Lee. And at the state level, we've also had interesting conversations recently with state senators Liz Krueger and Jessica Ramos. We've been dealing with other issues on the show, not just cryptocurrency and not just charter schools like today, but we've also talked with experts and stakeholders and policymakers about New York shift to clean.

Why in your opinion have we had this increase in shootings and murders in the last couple of years? It's definitely political for me because I can tell you what happened to me in the city of Compton. I formed a continent and I did this, put crips in Paris rouge together. To stop all the gay mothers in the city and had a program I had this work and it worked. But guess what happened for political reasons, the political reasons they stopped my program and content. I was meeting with first and started off with four crypts and four blood at the end of the day I was meeting with 3000 crypts and pyruvate. So I went in front of the city council, which is I can say that it's all Democrats. And what happened, they denied my program.

And I think COVID's a moving target. We're talking about there's a new variant that's being talked about a little bit in some scientific circles. I think we need to see kind of where we are. The one thing I will tell you is that borrow president may borrow president Donovan Richards made a proposal to the mayoral administration of having an office of COVID recovery that would pull in that would pull in processes from all the different agencies and be a one stop shop to make sure that COVID recovery is done in an effective, efficient and consistent manner. And that's something that interested in looking at as well. What I'm actually looking at is telemedicine, how we can make it work, because with the COVID pandemic, because during the height of the pandemic, I was helping with my own little capacity and my partner is a doctor. We lift the office open. And I realize a lot of folks who are not attached to primary care in a high risk area. So therefore, they could not benefit from the telemedicine. So they could not get their attention and they end up in the ER and overload the year. So we have to take a focus and prepare. I'm not hoping for any other pandemic, but we have to prepare for that. So people don't have to rush to the hospital, because when you go in the hospital, then that prep and they don't have PPE so they end up infecting the stab this stuff is being infectious and go back and forth. And in the meanwhile, if you have Tilly medicine effectively functioning for everyone with their I'm going to talk to about a lot of other things. But what Ben? Because we did not have that.

"You know, I mean, it strikes me and I do want to move on to a couple other things in front of that much more time left, but if anybody wants to jump in and comment on this, it strikes me that there's obviously a lot of people calling for more and more supportive housing, affordable housing with services built in, that can address certainly some of these issues, not to mention the city's deep four browsing crisis. But a lot of times still, even if you have more supportive housing, even if you have more supportive service, you wind up with situations where there are people who are a danger to themselves or others, but are not willingly seeking treatment. Have stopped taking medication. It's very hard to convince them to start again or there's not an appropriate place that people that know them feel like they can bring them as some of you are getting at. And there seems to just be a lot of cracks in that essential network of helping people who are among the most vulnerable people in the city. Let me ask you each a few kind of quick round Robin questions here. Is there an issue each of you wants to hold an oversight hearing on among your first, maybe second, you're all gonna have to co chair some budget hearings coming up on the mayor's preliminary budget, so that'll throw you into the deep end very quickly on the budget. But in terms of your committee area and oversight hearings, separate from the budget, is there a topic that you want to hold and oversight hearing early on counselor minorities? Why don't you go ahead? I want to hold hearing on effectiveness of community health centers. Because I believe those are the places where we can make a differences. We can increase the amount of community health centers, especially in our high risk areas. Sorry with my little cat, pushing on that. Airing where we can highlight the needs and the potential effects effectiveness of them, right? We want to build it a great catalyst to begin the investment process. And hearing that you want to want to hold soon. I'll go ahead. I mean, it really was sort of going back to the thrive NYC and also just the monies because I think if we're going to create new policies we need to first take a look back, especially during COVID, see what worked what didn't. And make sure that that money is being directed in the way that it needs to go, especially during a time where mental health is such a crisis. So that'll probably coincide with budget hearing perhaps. Council member showman something you want to hold on oversight hearing on? Yes, absolutely. I want to do it. On COVID and, you know, they want in the previous council. There weren't a lot of hearings about COVID. We want to see what the stats are where we are with the Department of Health..

"Ran a lot of programs. They tried to increase awareness about seeking mental health services, reduced stigma and so forth. But the way they sort of shot themselves in the foot was that these very clear incidents of people struggling on the subways with serious mental illness are on the streets. It seemed like a ubiquitous problem that they just weren't dealing with and their answers were never very good about why those services weren't better. So all three of you, but council member Lee, you know, you first, how are you approaching chairing this committee looking at these issues? And even as you advocate for some of what you just mentioned and try to increase resources to community groups and continue to reduce stigma and make sure language language access is there for mental health services. How does, how are you thinking about how New York City improves the approach to the relatively small number of people who are really struggling with severe mental illness but not getting the treatment they need? Sure. So as you mentioned, I think one of the positive things that thrive NYC has done is bring the issue of mental health to the forefront, which I think is really important, because I think before thrive, it just wasn't given enough attention in my opinion. And so I think that's one thing that has worked well. I do think that they have done a good job of trying to coordinate a lot of the different types of services between addiction, as well as mental health. I think what we need to do more though in my opinion is just follow the dollars and make sure that city council members were stewards and were overseers of the city budget. And I think it's not even about I would say more dollars, but I would even say let's reevaluate the budget currently because there were a bunch of community groups that were supposed to get this funding and never saw the funding..

"Yeah, no, definitely. I think, for example, in Queens alone, Jamaica elmhurst and flushing hospital are the only ones that have inpatient units in them. And a lot of our a lot of our community members, unfortunately, it's a revolving door. So that's part of the issue, too, is that and I don't know if this is a direct correlation, I would like to think that there's some correlation, but I actually spoke to some of the Korean clinical social workers at elmhurst hospital after we opened up our clinic. And they did mention to me they're like, you know, we don't know if this is directly related, but we have noticed that at least for our Korean speaking clients, they have, we have seen a decrease in the number of people coming into the inpatient unit because you guys opened up your outpatient unit. So now we actually have somewhere to send them, right? So I think it's a holistic approach because I'm a huge, huge advocate for preventative services and just to piggyback off what Lynn and Mercedes were saying is that there's so much research about how preventative care saves the city and state dollars in the healthcare system. Like my friend, just a lot of times small business owners, for example, in the immigrant community, don't prioritize their health because they're really thinking about surviving and just making ends meet. And so they don't take care of themselves and that happened to my friend's mom who had diabetes, which people don't know by the way that Koreans have one of the highest rates of diabetes. It's a huge chronic disease issue. Yeah, exactly. So and she had a stroke as a result of the fact that she never took care of her diabetes type two, had to go into. Care was an assisted living for a while. And then it's a ton of dollars that you're spending out of pocket on the family as well as in the healthcare system where it could have been prevented if she had just treated her diabetes much early on. And same thing with mental health. You know, I think there's a lot we can do. And I think there's a lot more we can do to really empower a lot of the CBOs and nonprofit organizations that can provide some of this supportive service. And how do we help them a system? Make sure that the dollars are going towards those community groups that are actually providing a lot of these essential services that are ancillary to the healthcare system, but just as important to keep people out of the hospital setting. And so for us, we're just trying to think through that means we need to build up the base of social workers. We need to have more bilingual social workers. We need to have more people through the pipeline. That are coming in the workforce, right? Because it's not and to be honest, one of the things that I would love to work on, which is sort of side note is the pay parity issue because I oftentimes feel like people in healthcare don't get paid the salaries that they deserve..

"That Blake Taylor Is the program director here, it Cam J. Which means that it's his job, Tol. I guess he's I guess he's like the pit boss. Uh, well, maybe that's not the right word. The pit boss it. It's gambling, but But who is the guy that's in charge? Producer Mike Martinez here with me is the guy that's in charge of the like NASCAR in the car. The car pulls into the pit. There's a guy that's in charge. We'll call him the crew crew chief. Okay. Crew, Chief Lakes, the crew chief, but If we're talking auto racing Blake Taylor's also the driver. So if the if the car pulls into the pit, and the driver can't do the next lap than Blake has toe go from being the crew chief and changed the tires and all that toe, actually driving the car s O Sometimes when Blake doesn't go on the air he calls in from the reserve crew, and that's what I am The reserve crew very happy to be here with you today on this Gorgeous. Beautiful Tuesday morning, and there is so much going on. I love getting the call to do this. When there is a lot going on. There's an election going in the state of Georgia right now to Senate seats. Are up for grabs. Maybe we're going to talk about that a little bit. We may have may have The New City Council member from District four in the city of Fresno. His name's Tyler Maxwell. He may be joining us that is still pending. If you are a friend of Tyler, or if you are Tyler listening, text me and give me the time so that we can tell the audience what time you're going to be in here because People are curious. They want to know which direction the city is going to be headed in. We have a new mayor today. But you know what? In Clint World in Clint Land? The biggest thing, And if you hear me, slurring my speech well and talking, it's because Have a Nicorette in my mouth. Uh, you're supposed to chew it on. Then you feel it tingle and then you move it. Like Between your cheek in your gums so you can absorb the nicotine. Yeah. I don't know if if you knew this, but I Have been a smoker. On and off. Uh, since I was in the Marine Corps And, uh, you know that if you want to start smoking and poisoning yourself And you're young person joined the military, because, uh, it's it's I mean, I don't know I haven't been in since the nineties. Used to call US Clinton Marines. Because our commander in chief was Bill Clinton. And I served in peace time. So I didn't have to endure the peril and the horrors that some of our young people, unfortunately, find themselves in. So we smoked tobacco. Um You know, it's it's a culture of smoking. At least it was. I'm sure there's some veterans out there and you can relate to what I'm saying. But there were there were times When We were sitting around E mean doing whatever sitting sitting around with with nothing to do and veterans and those of you who are military brats or wives to people who are in the military. You probably know a little bit about this, too. The military is just Awful awful. Crippling boredom punctuated by times of great excitement, and you get the adrenaline burst and then get the fighter flight. So This was not a time of adrenaline we were sitting around and and this is just an example of how smoking Really was was good for me. When I was younger, I just I remember this time we're all sitting around and some nce. Oh, that's non commissioned officer comes comes in looking for people to volunteer. And I say, volunteer in quotes because when you're in the military, you just kind of you know you volunteered that one time when you enlist And then I mean, nothing's really voluntary, So they were looking for people for what they call a working party. This is not a party. This is just like filling sandbags moving. Heavy stuff. Painting rocks. You know, the Peacetime Reserve Marine Corps, right? So this one time Sit around. Nothing to do. And they said Somebody said Let's go outside and smoke. Okay. Go outside. You smoke? Well, here come the you know the end CEOs or whoever. It was some kind of lieutenant, a warrant officer with a staff sergeant. They They're going to look for their coming to look for people to volunteer for the working party. Trust me. This was the kind of stuff I mean, I wasn't a shirker per se, but you know, if if the choice was to fill sandbags or do something else, I would choose something else. Just like all of you would be honest and veterans. You did, too. So these guys come walking up the sidewalk. And they're looking for volunteers, and there are three or four of us outside smoking. They walked right by us, and they pulled three or four people from inside who were not smoking. So the it's very clear that these people in charge saw the smokers as actually doing something. Let's go in and find people who are not doing something and put them to work. So in many instances while serving this great country and the Marine Corps There were opportunities to smoke instead of work. And so that was that was something that I availed myself of a number of times because when you're smoking while you're doing something Uh, military. Don't get me started. But you know it was. It was a bad habit. Now, there were times I think there there have been times I've been off these things for years. There are times in my life well. You know, I I didn't news And when you're in news, it's kind of the same thing. You know that adrenaline rush. I guess I'm kind of an adrenaline junkie. And so you get that adrenaline rush when you're presenting your news story, or you're anchoring or something like that. And so it's It's it's, uh, it just goes hand in hand, You know, for those of you out there who are smokers or former smokers, you know that that cup of coffee It's just incomplete, right without the without the tobacco to go along with it. So anyway, I'm getting old. I'm getting older. I have salt and pepper beard. Maybe it's just a bad shave. But whatever its salt and pepper and I'm getting older, and I've got small Children, and I want to be able to play with them without getting winded, and I've been okay. I know some of you been coughing up black tar and hacking and coughing, and I haven't exactly been there, but I want your support. You know what, In fact, on Twitter, which I love I tweeted something on New Year's Day about quitting smoking. It's the biggest tweet I've ever sent. Now. I've said all kinds of wood, I think or intelligent, pithy and wonderful and brilliant things on Twitter. Nobody likes it. Nobody to eats me back. Nobody insults me. I mean, somebody at least insult me. But nobody ever did. But I tweet that I quit smoking. And then everybody gets in s O people have been very supportive. Um people have been good to me. And I've been okay. In fact, I went to 7 11 the other night to get a gallon of milk. I said to my friend, the lady who works there. Do not sell me Parliament lights. And and she she said she will never sell me cigarettes until the rest of the people at 7 11 not to sell me sick, So I'm starting to, you know, enlist some allies in in this struggle. S o. I'm doing all right. I've got Listen. Listen, there's a Nicorette. I've got 12345678. I've got nine here for this Ray Appleton show And you know what? This is what they call and I know you 12 steppers out there. Know what a slippery places this is a very slippery place for me. Because I mean, isn't smoking part of the radio culture, right? I mean it. I don't want out anyone but there are still smokers in the building on Brady. Oh, I mean, he used to just be able to smoke in the studio, which I wish We could still do that..

"Bike lanes on Fourth Avenue in Brooklyn, where there are parked cars between you and the traffic and so half the time cards are making turns into you, and you're going out to the intersections completely blind. So if they're gonna build bike infrastructure, which they really, really, really need to They need to build it separate from automobiles, just Fundamentally, it doesn't work otherwise. And you wanted to push back. I think on the relatively positive spin that I was putting on the number of cyclists deaths staying Quest One. Death is too many, but the number of cycle list gets not going up. With the Large number of additional cycle lists this year. You want you wanted to say why that Is not actually a sign of progress, right? Oh, yeah, that's that's I mean, the streets were basically frozen for, like, three almost four months, Right? When Cove it started. I was riding my bike. In relatively empty streets and really enjoying it, especially in April in May and June on now, there's more cars than there really ever have been present since buying them and everyone's coming. Back to the city with them so I don't think having the same number of deaths over a period of time where there was so much You know? Free space to ride. I think it's still seriously problematic. Personally lost a friend in an accident this year, and it doesn't seem like it's safer out there. People are cutting us off constantly. Eric thank you very much. And obviously, if there's more speeding, which we know that there is that's going to be dangerous for people who could be dangerous for anybody, but it's certainly going to be dangerous for people who aren't in vehicles. The same size and weight as yours. Ben? Yeah, Chris. I think there's also still some confusion for the outdoor dining restaurants. On the proper way to winterize the structures, Blizzard or not, For example, I think places have to have at least 50% open sides to operate during an indoor dining shut down so that the air is really circulating and they're not just replicating indoors outdoors. Is that right? That is right, and we have seen a lot of confusion around this issue. And, you know, go on Twitter something you'll see a lot of people taking photos of these structures and being like, how is this outdoor dining? Well in a lot of cases. It's not outdoor dining. If you've created a structure that is enclosed over 50% that it is indoor dining, and it was under those capacity rules. Because indoor dining has now been suspended in the city for the foreseeable future. If restaurant wants to keep one of those structures they need to then dismantle it so that it is, as you said, at least 50% open and so city inspectors are going to start going out this week. The blizzard probably will stop them end of the week. But beginning of this week and all next week, they're gonna be checking these structures out so to make sure that they have circulation happened Here. Straighten in Athens, Georgia, following up on the caller from before about stop signs for bike lanes trite neuron w N Y. C and AM I saying your name right? That is correct. Thank you very much, Brian for having me on. I'm a fan of Yeah, Yeah, I just wanted to sort of add. Excuse me. I just want to add to the conversation. I knew that the stop signs isn't the only problem. But it is a problem I used to live in NYC. Is the bike from Queens. I lived in which side I would like to find seminary in the Union Square area most mornings and evenings. And when you're the only cyclists that obeys the stop sign, you get clicked. I was clipped several times by cyclists who just kept blowing through stop signs. You either get clipped, or you have to move into the street into oncoming traffic. And, you know, I know we compare ourselves in New York City to you know, European countries and I cycled in Japan. I cycled in Denmark, and the thing is that people actually follow. The stop signs or the traffic science for cycling, and so I just feel like N. Y C could also borrow that toe help, you know, just sort of to encourage cyclists to play safe but also protect them from oncoming traffic as well. Trading. Thank you very much before you each go Steven for you. The Regional Plan Association, which some people know is a not for profit pillar of the planning establishment. Submitted a long list of ideas to the mayor about addressing traffic safety specifically in a pandemic, and among the suggestions was aggressively expand speech, straight street space for pedestrians. They did some of that. Ramp up bike lane installation. We've been talking about how they've done pathetically little of that come up with a plan for restricting vehicular traffic in Manhattan, like the city did after 9 11 and come up with a robust communication plan as they call it. Help New Yorkers get out of their cars and find other ways to get around. But that's really hard when the Impose, even for a lot of people I know. Who live in the city and say, I don't what ever own a car again, but they don't feel taking shape taking the subway. And they're tempted to buy cars, and many of them are buying cars, so it's hard to have sort of the public minded impulse and what seems right for you as an individual. At the same time. You laid it out Absolutely Brian on adding to that There's also been a renewed sort of pushed from folks to bring back the idea of permitted street parking, because, like you said, there are so many people buying cars. On. It's such valuable space restaurants are now using the parking spaces, eh, So I do think there's an awakening and awareness of how valuable this public streets spaces on. But there's a lot of competing interests now, so it'll be interesting to see going forward. How the city responds and how flexible they can be. And how willing they are to take chances. We have a new mayor coming in New City Council coming Ah, so I expect to see a lot of changes in the coming years, even next year. And Ben for us, Gotham Ists Arts and Culture editor. I wonder what kind of creativity we might see over the coming days. If we really do get a big blizzard. His last year, I was seeing the stat I knew I didn't wear my boots it all last winter, But I saw the stat that it was only.

"You know to me, it's about freedom. Everybody was about to throw all their numbers out about if you could earn Mohr or less how many hours you work, But the truth is, you have the freedom to decide how many hours you're going to work. And if you don't like the return, then you could go take another job somewhere else. But that's your business. It's it's Uber's business. It's not the state's business or this outside union. It's simply not their business, and they never wanted. You know, they've been dated something that they had no reason to get involved. That's why I'm focusing on what the unions get out of this. They get union dues. Why else would they care? I have never wanted or needed the government to meddle in my affairs when it comes to how I choose to conduct my, um my work life. It is my choice as to how I want to make my money. How I want to be compensated. And and how much I want to work. You know, That's the choice that I have as an independent contractor. Right now, I have the flexibility to work when I want and how I want And you know, I have a heart condition. So you know, I have to Constantly monitor my health. My cardiologists has told me many, many times. You cannot have stress in your life. Well, you know, working most jobs. You're gonna have struck me like this is about the most stress free job I've ever had. So why don't want to give that up? You think a prop 22 goes down the business model for uber and lift as we know it is probably over. I don't see how it couldn't be. You know the undercurrent employment models.

They would have to Goto a scheduled based employment model It would you know, in order to provide coverage in every area in every corner of the state. We're going to have to hire supervisors for just about every region of the state and try to maintain whatever coverage they can, and that's going to limit how many hours you work, too, because then they'd have to do overtime. And so you're going T O be cut off at 40. You're not going to be able to go to 65 hours a week. Exactly. And if you work part time, there's a really good chance They're gonna keep you below 30 so that you don't qualify for the federal minimum health benefit because the federal minimum help at a value 30 hours. Yeah, yeah. A lot of people worked. 29 hour weeks. Exactly. Yeah, and it's certainly not just you know that that that that's happening in every industry. I think we already know that you know. Walmart has been accused of doing that for a long time. Appreciate you coming on and sharing your thoughts. Just one quick thing I don't know. Do you run into any other drivers? I mean, it's a solitary business that you're running, but he can't get any sense out there of how other drivers feel. Oh, sure is a matter of fact. Just yesterday I was at a stoplight at an intersection. And there was a guy next to you with a lift sticker on the back of his on the back of his vehicle. So asked him rolled down his window. He did. I said, Have you heard of prop 22? He says. Oh, yeah, I'm a yes. All right. Thanks for coming on Doug. My pleasure guys, right?

"I've been reading through out the country when you seated statues toppled the just that the statue was toppled. You know, or the statue's been defaced. Now it's interesting about this story is that it continues to grow legs in different directions. Just today. Authorities in Contra Costa County. And basically this has happened in the little town of Martinez announced that they are now investigating another crime. This is for the illegal painting of white lives matter on the street. Oh, here comes apparently, if you write, you know, white lives matter on the street. That is worthy of an investigation. Now let me say again. I'm very long order here, Lou. I'm very fair about it. The ball gets thrown right across the plate. White lives matter being written on a public road way. Is vandalism. And it does. Warrant, at least on the technical definition of Ah crime. It would warrant an investigation into who did the vandalism. However, I come back and asked the same question. Why is it appropriate for the quote peaceful protesters to also defaced public property? I don't care what their messages it doesn't matter what their messages. The laws are not written on the basis of if I like your message. It's not vandalism. No, you don't do it that way. If you defaced public property includes the street. With a message. It's not approved by the City Council and authorized to be there. It is vandalism and it should be investigated. But that's not how these people are operating up there. It is a double standard, which means it is a miscarriage of justice. You cannot enforce some laws for some speech for some people, but not enforce it for others. And so if I were a good lawyer and I were representing the people who were prosecuted with this I would actually make a part of my appeal that this is selective prosecution. That you've gone after my clients because of the content of their speech, not because of the act itself because you decided to overlook the act when it was being done by all these other people because you thought that their speech was somehow worthy of justifying vandalism. Why is this not the story? Instead. Our friends in the media decide that the story is AH hate crime has occurred in Martinez counter Kostya, California. It's not a hate crime, but some woman with black paint and by the way, surely got to be in L. So it just says AC lives matter now, well again by the letter of the law. What she did was wrong. It is vandalism because it was approved by City Council. Therefore it is publicly protected. It is it is, it is public right away. It is a public message, and you cannot to face it. You may not like it. And so go to the City Council get New City Council members. But saying that somehow defacing the message is akin to also hate speech now inside a hate crime. It actually is someone who disagrees the message. It's not racist. What they're saying is that they don't like the fact that you're focusing on one skin color as mattering as lives versus the other, and I'm not going to get in the whole debate over that. I'm just simply explaining from a legal standpoint. That is the justification. Quick break when we come back, and we talked about CNN's don lemon, he has a way to fix the how the whole Mount Rushmore debate. Where'd you hear that? Hear from votes if they disagree with how I just brought that whole down. Double standard. And do you agree? I'm looking at you Republicans. Lawn water Republicans that what the people did was technically a prosecutable offense. Do you agree with me on that? 806 100 Kogo 806 105 646 It's a good question.
