"You you know talking in on a bunch of different interviews today and you said burn it down you said burn it down it's time so that makes me thank you one and said you want to save this country if this country doesn't give us what we want Jane we will burn down the system and replace it all right and I give me speak in cities are very figuratively speaking literally as a matter of interpretation yeah you like that little cute disclaimer at the end I could be speaking figuratively blah blah blah just let me repeat the important part of what Mr Newsome said and I'm quoting if this country doesn't give us what we want then we will burn down the system again Hank Newsome president of the greater New York black lives matter chapter so here you have the leader of the largest chapter in the country advocating for burning the system down and like I said you risk the fury of the mob if you dare to criticize him and by the way this guy Mr Newsome he's the same person who said in two thousand and fifteen quote we are prepared to stop these what he refers to as police shootings we are prepared to stop the shootings by any means necessary and I think we all know at least those that study history we all know what that means if there's not a lot of ambiguity in Mr Newsome statement are there up I'm not seeing any black lives matter really about saving black lives I mean if they were wouldn't they be more concerned about the seventy five hundred black on black murders in two thousand and nineteen compared to the nine count em nine questionable use of force killings of blacks by police and I'm not very good at math but I think that comes down to about ninety nine point nine percent versus point zero one percent but I guess those seventy five hundred their lives don't matter make no mistake about it people black lives matter is more about a radical political agenda than saving black lives if I'm allowed to say that fighting racism is secondary to their primary mission which is tearing down the United States of America another example Patrice Cullors a black lives matter founder told CNN's Jake tapper this week that her main goal was not to help black people her main goal was to get Donald trump out of office here's what she said can you get that one please and I guess not well here's what you said hands down trump not only needs to not be an office in November but he should resign now we trump needs to be out of office he is not fit for office and so what we are going to push for is a move to get trump out while we're also going to continue to push and pressure vice president Joe Biden around his policies and relationship to print policing and criminalization that's going to be important but our goal is to get trump out our goal is to get trump out he didn't hear her say our goal is to help black people by the way ms callers is a proud admitted Marxist now not to be outdone black lives matter activist Shaun king said this week that the statues that depict Jesus Christ as a white man should be torn down because he says quote they are a form of white supremacy and always have been close quote of course they are and why haven't we all figured that out yet you know the nuns insane Antoninus I got to teach me that part so does this sound like the group that should be lionized and supported again tags in a blanket prime like bacon let's burn down our country by any means necessary does this sound to you like a group that should be part of our kids curriculum at school and I'm talking about grade school does this sound like a group it should be immune from criticism which pretty much they now are well you know what a lot of our major corporations seem to think so as of June tenth of this year this is the most recent I could find as of June tenth of this year black enterprise dot com reports that listen to this one point six billion dollars have been contributed to black lives matter by corporations one point six billion with a B. and again that's as of June tenth I'm sure it's much more than that now and you're just some of the contributions and again I making this up it's from black enterprise dot com the bank of America one billion dollars ninety one hundred million dollars Google twenty five million dollars Amazon ten million Facebook ten million Goldman Sachs ten million and that's just a taste of it so we can only assume that these corporations Walmart was another one like Walmart Nike and M. S. Amazon we can only assume that they're okay with advocating the murder of police officers they're okay with the group whose leaders advocate for the violent overthrow of the government of the United States of America again by any means necessary all these groups bank of America they're okay with the group that says it exists to advocate for the safety of black people when in fact the real goal at least in two thousand and twenty is to defeat the president of the United States and all these companies Google Facebook Walmart and the others I guess they're okay with the group that could care less about the thousands of young black men murdered by other young black men in the killing fields in Chicago and other cities all over the country people something is very wrong in this country isn't it something is very very wrong we are supporting and in some cases even lie in icing and financing groups of people who disrupt lawful city council meetings we had again this week tear down and burn the American flag appropriate private property like in Seattle for their own use people who advocate for the murder of police officers thank you bank of America support the violent overthrow of the United States of America it this is we're supporting now all of this while many in this country bash criticized and even in some cases advocate the funding the very people who protect us the cops something needs to change and change soon in this country those that want to destroy this country and everything it stands for they sensed an opportunity for the radical agenda to move forward and have no doubt about this people they are seizing the moment and unless you've been living in a cave the past couple months you see that there's a guy's a writer he's really good his name is rob excuse me rod Dreher he's a senior editor at the American conservative he put it past this week when he said this we are going to come out of this long hot miserable summer with the progressive ruling class with them having much more confidence in their own righteousness and also their own arrogance and they're going to be much more willing to clamp down on any dissent from their social justice gospel if you dare dissent from that we have to get ready for we really don't have any time.

"But it wouldn't be a pop culture cosmos without my good friend. He's our own singing diva of pop culture. Cosmos gotTA check out what he's doing today at Pop Culture Cosmos at Yahoo Dot Com pop culture cosmos. d'abord press dot Com and also his great show topic clips ups and is awesome book. Congratulations you suck. It is my good friend. It is Josh Peterson. What's up man? What brought up? How's it going? Well right now is going okay until I probably turn off our entire audience and also our friendship gets destroyed in the latter half of the show. Because I'M GONNA do. Some singing with Carpool Karaoke. TYPE DEAL WITH ROXY MOBILE KARAOKE FROM PEP COM coming up later in the program also those well we have interviews with pop sockets and also as well oral B.. Those are three great interviews. We have on tap from C. N.. Pep Calm they're going to be sprinkled in throughout the program was also got just a box with partout of January TV. Update and Josh. And I on the back end if he can still stomach it after hearing my voice we're GonNa talk about. DC and marvel both their universes started getting a little bit closer together with some TV. That happened over the course of the past week but also an interesting trae. That came out by Sony. So we're GonNa talk about the DC Marvel Universe's coming a little bit closer coming up later in the program and whether or not Josh denied like it or not but I my friend Badboy three exceeded expectations at the box office. This looks like over the course of the three day weekend. Actually four days include Friday. It's GonNa earn about seventy million dollars. which is well above the expectations? That are out there. You know what I'm going to give Kudos to troy once again from the discover community network you know he is telling us that we should have more faith in a film like that bringing in an audience I kinda disagree with them a little bit because I thought anytime you're dealing with nostalgia. Most of these nostalgia projects these reboots. It's these films that have come out after so many years it with a sequel and whatnot. They'd have a tendency not to go ahead and hit its target audience. But this looks it's like did it's actually even sparked according to the Hollywood trade papers Sony saying you know what we're going to go ahead and start work on a fourth one so another another bad boys movie could be in the works. I know the script is already being drawn up as we speak so I want to hear from you. Your thoughts on bad boys three. Why was it such a big big success because you and I are so down on another nostalgia project after another after another that it gets the point where we're not sure which nostalgia will work with audiences? and which ones won't I don't know like this is a mystery to me like I haven't actually reading the reviews yet but it seems like you know we were wrong about this I. I didn't exactly predict that is going to bomb but I just said I didn't imagine it doing well and I was wrong about this so I I don't know what it is is like you know these nostalgia films. It's a fifty fifty chance in. There is no predicting it at all because you know bad boys one into there enjoyed by fans action films and fans of that genre film. I didn't see this happening Kinda came out of nowhere so I don't know why did it again. I haven't read a lot about it but the fact that Sony is already green lighting a sequel either shows that they're desperate for their next hit or you know this is a property they truly believe in. And if that's the case why did it take so long to make and again with bad boys for how long until that one is made. It's GonNa be another ten years. Who knows what are your thoughts? Not so now now. I think it's going to be because it's going to evolve most likely Martin Lawrence and will Smith is probably has to be within the context or span of two to three years so it shouldn't take that long especially because their storylines are not so in-depth you know it's okay. How can will Smith shoot two hundred more bad guys similar to what what we see with John Wick you know? How many bad guys can John? We killin this film as opposed to the last one in this case the same thing. How many bad guys or drug cartel people or anything anything like that? How many can you go ahead and shoot in the span of a two hour timeframe with him and Martin Lawrence trying to cut jokes along the way so it shouldn't be that difficult to come up with something like that because they're not going into heavy detail they're not going to go ahead and throw out? You know a whole bunch defect Sacha although they are getting a little bit pricier with those type of movies I mean we talked about it on the PCC multi they're getting to the ninety one hundred million dollar range as as far as the cost for this film so it does have to earn about three hundred twenty five three hundred fifty million dollars before you really can say you know what is going to take profit but I think get actually can at this point in time because of the great stars that as here domestically I think it can actually reach to that point so obviously we'll be justified by Sony. Go ahead and green light a sequel. I'm just I just when it comes out to Algebra is it's just hard for us out there as Johnny audience to see which ones work. which ones don't I mean? The ratings and reviews are similar to what we saw with the last terminator and and that both films were marginally thought of well and things of that nature when when you look at it on both rotten tomatoes and also metacritic but that one hit while the other one was a massive failure. So it's kind of difficult to understand what these audiences are wanted to choose when it comes to Nesta but then again is probably just going to green light three four five more projects because bad boys did well and that's the thing for everyone that does hit. You'll see three or four for. Don't we see it all the time on television. We talk about it all the time. We're all these reboots and all these nostalgia plays get green lit and very few wind up being a success story. So it's kind of interesting to see how that goes doolittle on the other hand it didn't do as bad as people thought it would but it still only gonNA earn earn thirty million dollars over the course of four days still not great especially the fact that it cost almost two hundred million dollars to make and it will probably never see a diamond profit no matter how much it makes it round the world. That's a very disappointing number for Robert Downey Junior and obviously the folks that universal but when it comes through the success story this weekend it has to be the all about the bad boys and one last thing when we touch upon the success of bad boys and bad boys three. The one thing I wanna ask you is is it just because people I think at this point in time in January just needed like we talked about before a pallet cleanser just something that he was not heavy at all was. Light was finally had a little bit of of action to similar to what we saw with. Hobson Shah Hobson. Shaw's was not going to earn any awards but it was going to go ahead and meet that certain niche as far as those looking for just some some light action here who with a lot of jokes that just has people going you know. I really enjoyed that flick. It's not going to be something I'm going to remember but hey it was just a lot of fun while I was there. Yeah it is up. Cornflakes I'd be interested to see. What the demographics are this film of people who went to go see it but in no bad boy sue was a fun on ride like it was not not a bad movie like it was quite enjoyable begist? It's something that happened so long ago. I wasn't sure anyone really care anymore. Yay He added Liberal. What we saw with Blade runner twenty forty nine right but bladerunner twenty forty nine was such a deep intellectual film that I can see why I people be turned off by? I personally loved it. I know you did too but with this. This is just kind of something. It's mind numbing in a way you know. There's deep layered storylines was about these two cops hopscotch rush hour but with Martin Lawrence and will Smith so I could see people going to see a just because it is a fun film again. I haven't seen any like advertising advertising campaigns or target or Walmart putting out reprints of the first two films. I'm just curious like how it's doing so well and can you know do people really what is demographic so people are going to see it as a young kids or is it people who grew up watching the ones in the nineties and the early two thousands that that is something interesting to talk about as far as who is exactly watching this film as Fars from an age group standpoint. Is it like you say young kids who haven't seen the previous. Do that. Just thought this would be really cool to see or is the majority of people going in. Let's say your age group or my age group that saw the movies eighteen and twenty five five years ago that have a fond memory for it. That's why they wanted to go and return to want to wait and see what the demographics lineup for that the interesting to go ahead and follow up bon but you mentioned rush hour for. I haven't heard anything definitive on that. Yet I mean that's been floating around for a long time as far as possibly reigniting that it would be interesting to see now. That bad boys three did so well could rush hour four. Be Not far behind again. You know it's been talked about for a long time. The trended needed put out a series right. If I remember correctly is the rush hour series in do so well my no. There's an interview with Chris. Tucker five or six months ago that he was is talking about. Hey we're doing this is happening. The wheels are in motion. We're getting ready to make this film but then again since then. We haven't heard anything about that but when it does finally get made eight I guarantee you. It's not going to be a flop. It's going to be something that might not do gangbusters box office but it will be something. That's definitely worth the money. So you know. Is it worth worth it for a studio to put the time and effort into making something that only makes them a little bit of money or are they really trying to make this one hit. Who knows who knows but I tell to what is be interesting to see? WE'RE NOT GONNA go ahead and be so dismissive next time around if that's the case for either bad boys for or rush hour for if that's the case because so I'll tell you what we were proven wrong this time around but we're going to be a little bit more apprehensive to go ahead and jump on the button to say. This movie is going to be a failure. Just because get the reboot or let's say a sequel to something. That's been a long time away so we're GONNA be a little bit more guarded in our expectations. One way or the other when it comes to these nostalgia plays because you never know when the fans are GonNa come out and see something that they remember so fondly. What are your thoughts out there on batboys three? Did you enjoy it this weekend. We'd love to hear your thoughts. Pop Culture Cosmos.

"Chuck it's mike it's tucker here today as we head towards the weekend and not really can be take full weekend off because we had this g twenty summit that we are in the midst of right now with a big meeting expected between between president trump and president gee early in the morning in what is called japan standard time also known as korean standard time we looked this up previously and so that's going to be sometime late tonight is when that meeting is likely to be occurring eastern time and you're gonna have autofocus there just because of the escalation of the trade conflict that we've seen in the past the role really two months now yeah we are and you have place your bets i guess chuck that you think best case scenario here is a suspension of higher tariffs on the additional three hundred billion dollars of goods i've come out and said i really wouldn't be surprised by much of anything at this point i could see suspension i could see a broader deal getting done i could also see absolutely nothing getting done and tariffs going in july fifteenth august first so i really not sure what to expect to your every media outlet is reporting that it is very likely that lisa suspension of escalating tariffs happens here so there won't be any new terrace going into place but i dunno everyone's thought that about a month and a half ago and that didn't happen so so we're gonna be waiting on that we don't have any additional news to report right now but we'll certainly have something on monday there's no doubt about that i don't know which way it'll be but we'll have something then some news that we got over night actually rather late yesterday afternoon the federal reserve just went through the stress tests with the big banks all of the big banks eighteen of them in total are required to submit to these stress tests that have been in place since the financial crisis to make sure that they don't blow up the financial world again in while i think there's some valid questions about whether or not you know banks can hide things to make these stress tesla better than they want better than they actually are there's no doubt about what the results showed yesterday every single one of these eighteen banks past the second round of these stress tests and so that's that's pretty impressive there's usually one or two of them that has a tough time santander as traditionally been deutsche bank deutsche bank santander just a little bit tough time passing some of these but all eighteen of them have and you're gonna see additional buybacks stock buybacks boost to their dividends more payouts from these banks what we're expecting at this point and so while none of these banks ended up failing these these tests j._p. morgan capital when did have to resubmit their capital return plans nor to stay above the threshold of the fed specified so they got what is called for anyone familiar with golf this is literally what it's called the mulligan and pretty much if they're initial plans don't pass muster they resubmit and say okay here's what we're gonna do actually and that's how they are able to pass as a result of this you have all kinds of additional capital distribution plant coming out here so you've got additional buybacks and dividends coming here you have a couple cases j._p. morgan in particular They asked for a massive buyback. massive buyback boost going from about twenty billion dollars up to twenty nine billion so a fifty percent boost in the amount of stock they're going to be buying back they also bumped their dividend from eighty cents a share up to ninety you've got wells fargo bumping their share their dividend from forty five cents to fifty one bank of america bumping for fifteen cents a share to eighteen goldman sachs giving a fifty percent dividend boost his wealth eighty five cents a share to one twenty five morgan stanley bumping their buyback plan by twenty percent me like across the war just a whole bunch of capital flowing out towards bank stocks shareholders the financial sector as a whole up just over one percent but banks in particular as a sector are up about two percent today on a day when the market's up what a tenth of a percent at fifty percent looks like yeah i mean you go down the list and i'm just pulling out kind of the four biggest ones they're baked america two and a half percent wells fargo of two and a half percent goldman sachs two point four j. p. morgan chase up two point six so by the way we are on pace right now if the market closes about where it is we'll have the best first half of the year for the s&p five hundred since nineteen ninety eight Which I don't really think is a good indicator. i'm not really sure what that says look at and you're like okay ninety eight will the market didn't really fall apart in ninety nine two thousand and one we're particularly good so the z. over the next ten years after that pretty much the whole decade after that hot garbage for market so we'll see so other things that are happening in the banking sector goldman sachs and ally financial both of these companies have offered high interest savings accounts in recent years to try to get people onto their platforms goldman through their marcus platform which really no one had heard of because they just started i think three or four years ago they had been advertising rate of tuna quarter percent ally had been advertising rate of two point one percent i'm sorry two point two percent both of them cutting the rates on these accounts by point one percent even though the fed has not yet cut rates they have yeah it's sort of in anticipation but we see this in a lot of different areas right you know you see at the gas pump for instance right how long does it take for price cuts to happen at the tank versus price increases and so it's the same sort of story here and you know forever ten basis points that ally lowers savings rate the company's boosting their earnings by three percent so they can get away with it at this point in time and that's why they're doing it's not anything tied to the fed funds rate or anything like that it's just take interest rates overall have come down even the fed hasn't cut them do shop around at all at banks for different interest rates i do mainly just that i'm well informed about it if people ask me about it i don't use a high yield savings account because really i just have my checking account money and then the rest is the rest is invested but yeah i take a look around takayuki around at all not really to be honest adult this day and age you know back a few years ago right you've had that i and g direct account that was paying you know five six percent interest compared to bank america which was that one percent so spread these days you're looking at you know zero percent interest versus to it's just less of a spread in terms of what you're getting so i think it's tough to people to get excited about it so that's what's happening in interest rates again if you have an account with bank of america you're not getting anywhere near two percent to begin with you're getting negative when you consider all the charges yeah you have to imagine that you know some of the big boys are going to follow suit pretty shortly especially because i it's i feel like it's almost more challenging for people to move today also just because of all the direct deposits people have no have bill pay set up and i don't wanna change that it's it's just it feels a little overwhelming to people big news on the real estate frontier back in the nineteen seventies jackie kennedy bought about three hundred acres on martha's vineyard and so this ended up becoming known as redgate farm Slash airline. Kennedy is now listing this compound for sixty five million dollars, which so I guess, it's pretty good growth, right here. Here's the thing, doesn't it seem cheap for three hundred forty acres. no well i'm not saying it's like a forcible but you think about like some of these penthouse apartments in new york city that go for you know ninety one hundred million dollars in just look at it and maybe this is just personal preference wouldn't you rather pay way more for three hundred acres on martha's vineyard i mean tough the end of the day it's a summer house yeah i mean i think that's part of the price point as well new york is like you're in the middle of everything and everything's ready there for you if you're buying sixty five million dollar house you can get from martha's vineyard to the city of boston in about twenty five minutes through val you can help the copter yeah maybe the jet i think sixty five millions fair I don't too low. a love us debating whether sixty five million dollars price have got sixty eight maybe i would've listed like the agent commission is on this here's the other thing compare this to the previous record for sales on martha's vineyard the previous record is two and a half so this would double it and that was back in january by in a state that was previously owned by the former washington post publisher katharine graham and so this again is one of the kennedy comments keep mind they still are going to have they still have all the stuff on the cape that they're going to be only be worried about the kennedys i you know something tells me that they might be okay okay they might let's take break when we come back we've got action movie trivia and then also some disappointing news to report as far as a remote broadcast we are hoping to do later this year that now just seems unlikely to talk about on that when we come back on the financial.

"Old finance committee, corral, let's welcome to the program alderman, Scott Wagga, Spag mister chairman. How are you, sir? I'm doing okay. How are you doing that? I'm doing very, very well for years, you've been the voice of dissent in the city council. Now you rule over maybe the most important committee. Tell us some of the some of the reforms, you intend to make. Let's start with the number of people that the format of chairman had working with him there, seventy six people working for them. Are you going to be able to keep all those people on as you move forward? No. And actually, you know, as the beginning of the year, they were down to about twenty seven and then most recently down to twelve and what the mayor asked me to do was really down to about a dozen or less people with the staff budget. That's essentially looks like it's going to be about a fifth of what former Charon Birkat. So I'm going to be asked to do a lot more being more transparent open about the committee with a lot less. You also want to stab inspector general oversight over each city council committee, is that true. Yeah. And that's something that we've been working on for several years. This goes way back of west. Both was twenty sixteen and we lost that moat by just two votes. And I think it's important to make sure that, you know, tax payers are seeing what's happening in the city council, and the finance committee is one place where a lot of those things happen with the city finances, but. Throughout the committee system. It's something where we're going to try to bring up again and see how the new aldermen have a feel for it. And if we can find a way to have the inspector at least helping out and looking at better ways to make the committee's more efficient. The new chairman of our finance committee is here. Alderman, Scott wagons back described to us some of the ways that alderman, Burke, ran his own fiefdom. Well, he you know, he, he did a lot of things that I think, over the years he was able to pull into his committee that came from the administrator, the executive side administrative tasks like running the workers comp program, and we all know that's about a ninety one hundred million dollar program. The audit recently came out, and that, that the inspector general was able to pull together with the comptroller's office. It's it's moved out of the workers comp program completely away from the finance committee, and what, what they showed in that audit was that there were no controls in place or very little controls to prevent the fraud, waste, and abuse that a lot of people think was going on for many years. And that's one that was probably the one big area where you we feel that we need to continue to have hearing on it. And really try to rein that activity ends make sure that it's, it's working right for everybody that has workers comp issues. But he's also, you know there were areas where. I think the aldermen had his outside business. We're going to try to put us back to that for all men where they are working against city taxpayers are in conflict, which city taxpayers. And that's, that's another big area where I think we're gonna change to think that's constitutional, though. I mean I understand you have your law firm deals in attacks appeals that, that seems Hanky to me into everybody pretty much. What is your restaurant, Tom Burke? There's, there's other elected officials that do it in different entities, or, or different government bodies, but we were saying aldermen Burke taking the role for teams and essentially abstaining from a lot of these everything from bond deals to real estate deals because he was somehow involved in them. And as we saw the indict the recent indictment, we now know how. Yeah. Would this extended baby restaurant, tours or people that have any other small business, and they decide to be citizen patriots and run for the city council? Are they going to have to divest themselves or put it in a blind trust? Or what do you see? No, I think right now what we're looking at is allowing people to continue to do that. Because if you're, you know, if you don't want a restaurant, or a small business, for instance, you're not really working at the best interest of the city taxpayers. That's when you're basically making money off of tax payers, by you know, fighting to reduce taxes, that should be paid in an appropriate manner, or if you're holding something over somebody's head, so that they are required to take you as the client when they have other business in front of the city council, and I don't think that would happen with small business owner as you get into some of those paperwork alderman, Scott, wagons spec here, the brand new chairman of the finance committee. How bad is a parking meter private privatization deal? Oh, that one. I've known from day, one was a really bad deal. But we've talked to the mayor about opening it up, or at least looking at the books to see if we could change it. I, I know just a few years ago, mayor Emanuel pop it open and try to make it better. But it ended up being better for the parking company. So I've talked to her mayor Lightfoot about that. And that's something that's on the table, but we're also looking at the issues of water shut off. And, you know, for everyday resonance, we're looking at the towing contracts that are in the city. So I have a laundry list of things that we're going to be looking at. Holding hearings on first, and we can bring people to table and question them and find out how these things have been working for many years. So it won't have everything to do with the finance committee. But there are a lot of areas of concern for everyday resonance that we need to look at what happened with the three point seven million dollars settlement, the vote that happened yesterday that was your first time presiding as chairman of the city council's finance guy. I'm seeing more described as a cracking communications and they just didn't really understand what they were they were settling. Well, yeah, I think there was some concern that aldermen were trying to, you know, make a little show things, and I didn't really take affront to that. I felt that people hadn't been L. Well, informed of what the settlement was, and it was essentially a, a case, where a man had injured three passenger business in his car and twenty fourteen back with the settlement that we were trying to pass instead of taxpayers potentially going to court and having exposure of up to twenty five million in court, the lot apartment had asked for settlement thirty three million little over three million dollars. And I think some of them it didn't take it seriously. Didn't realize the probably hundreds of hours, the law department and other lawyers have worked on it and voted tried to vote it down. We basically had to come back and, and revote on it to make sure that people understood, I voting for and got her favorable though, that that was. Today. Right. During the full council meeting, but it was a little bit of a in my first meeting. But, you know, I try to communicate with all these all them and make sure they know the facts. And once I think they did we had a good outcome alderman. Thank you very much, sir. We appreciate it..

"ninety one hundred million dollars" Discussed on Xtra Sports Radio 1300 AM

"This. When are the Orioles energised, finally, eat it and cut Chris Davis? I mean, honest to God like really is embarrassing as I mean, honestly. The history already after starting over three Monday handed up over five. He's not had a hit now one since last September fourteenth. Has solved possession of the major league record for most consecutive at bats by position Blair without a hit. He lined out his first three times on Monday against Oakland. And then struck out. Looking and then struck out swinging. So he's over his last forty nine. Now, the crazy thing is he led the majors bagging in twenty fifteen with forty seven hummers the next season. The Orioles agreed to sign for seven years in a hundred and sixty one million dollars that was in twenty sixteen. Right. So three years later. I don't know what they're blaming. He's cleared. Well over one hundred million in his career and has a ton more coming. Here's what it says. This is funny. This one is on CBS hard not to feel sorry for him as a human being right out. My ass. Does that? I mean is that supposed to be like laughing right now. Now, I mean, honestly right right now. Now now now because I wanna puke. I feel sorry for God. Can't hit. At all. And is Megan one hundred sixty one million dollars guaranteed. He'll get every penny to get even get a hit. He's over forty nine for Christ sakes at what point do you? Just flat out finally do the Baena deal and figure out a way to pay him for the rest of his life and just get rid of him. I mean, honestly, he's an absolute hall in the lineup. They're playing with a players. There is no bat that is worth one hundred sixty one million dollars. That's over forty nine. I don't care who you are. You've got to get rid of him. Not only listen carbon last year that guy never got a hit either. I mean look at his numbers last season. One sixty eight. I mean, what do you need to know about this? Davis was an all-star finished her in the end the P boating twenty-third Dame. He had fifty two homers at one hundred thirty eight Rb is what the hell happened that guy. How is that possible that you can hit fifty two homers driving a hundred thirty eight runs and now you can't get hit? Yeah. It doesn't make a lot of sense. He really fell off the cliff very very quickly. Sometimes it just gets into. I can't even say it's a long strike. Most of them are strikeouts. You get rid of them get rid of him, you paint them. Anyway, I mean, I know basically come down to that makes no sense. Why keep him if he can't get a hit? I mean, he literally at this isn't one week. This is he hasn't had a hit since last year. It is crazy to think about fifty. You gotta get rid of him. You have to finally just eat it and say, how do we pay for the rest of your life? Let's sit down and figure this out because you're done is a major leaguer. He is so done, dude. It's not even funny. The guys has hit one sixty eight over the last year and a half as terrible. I know Vance to Chris Davis. Now, remember the guy said as a human being you're supposed to feel sorry for him. I don't feel sorry for anybody Meghan one hundred sixty dollars are either. But I am going to say that. I feel bad that the guys finished because he is he's finished. I don't count you keep that guy in your lineup. I mean, honestly, I you know, what it is. They suck so bad. Basically what they're saying is we don't care that we suck. And we're going to try them out there every day. We're paying them so much money, and we're gonna let him over five every night. And that to me is bad business decision to me. The better decision is to get rid of him and pay him. I mean, you gotta pay him. Anyway, I mean, don't you just eat it at some point? Just eat it. And you know, you're paying get rid of him paying and and take the loss. It's a lot of money, but you're getting nothing from it. Anyway, you're getting absolutely nothing from his bat. He cannot get a hit. He's over fifty whatever it is over forty nine. You gotta get rid of him. You got to get rid of him j what would you do with him? Would you just keep trotting him out there and playing or would you send them on a badge as a pinch hitter and pay him the money or would you get rid of him and cut a deal with his agent to pay him for the rest of his life? The hundred sixty million. Even deal. The Orioles are five and five. So you can't you probably have to hold onto them until you get five ten fifteen games below five hundred which is where we all expect the Orioles to be at five hundred. I mean, I guess you're still alive. We don't expect much from the Orioles. But just to cut him. A check for however, much is left eighty ninety one hundred million dollars. They won't do that. But they will do the other the alternative is to spread it out over till he's seventy years old or whatever. I don't know. It's tough spot. Can't they do that? They could legitimately do that. He agrees to it. Sure. You don't think that guy knows? He's not finished. He's finished. He can't even get a hit, bro. Pictures that have more hits than him. Honestly. I mean, John Lester double tonight. What do you need the now? I mean. Grammas a Homer to ground Hummer. And then he's got zero. Two two and a game. Right. Listen, I'm telling you. This guy's gotta go gotta go. You're over fifty. I'd be like this. I got to get rid of this guy's bad luck. It's hard to argue with you. I mean, honestly, someone explain that to me. I just don't understand it. I blame science mother. He does have to RBI's is here. He's really rig hit the ball hard tonight, by the way. Really turning the corner crest. Nice three drives her five. Keep it up. Fella. Great. Let's get an update. Here's Jay Berman. Sports flag Gotti before we get to the baseball. We have.

"ninety one hundred million dollars" Discussed on WSB-AM

"Government. Yeah. You know? This is smart politics. Go ahead. You got him talking on this. I've been to the Special Olympics. I think it's incredible. And I just thought there is a funding. I heard about it this morning. I have overridden by people. We're funding, right? Right. So I haven't here. There's a couple of things here. First of all, politically, you have to know which fights where you wanna fight. So politically speaking for seventeen million dollars. It's not where you want to start fighting to to cut the budget because Special Olympics. The blowback is going to be so bad PR is going to be so bad on the other side that is just not worth when you're all the only cut. You're gotta get a seventeen million dollars. So politically was kind of a bad idea. He did leave his homeland secretary. That's right. There in front of congress and say, no, this is why we're doing it this way. It's a good idea. The next day. He comes out and says I've over I've overridden them, and we're going to we're going to fund the Special Olympics that being said, so that's the political side of it. It was silly to kind of pick this fight. That's the political side of it. The other side of it, though is this shows you you wonder why we have a twenty trillion dollar debt. This isn't just it. But this shows you how difficult it is to actually cut the budget. The fact is the Special Olympics. Does it need government money? Special Olympics gets about seventeen million dollars in the government and about ninety million dollars from individual donations and corporate sponsorship, and they could probably get a lot more. It never hurts your brand if you're a corporation to say to be able to put the Special Olympics, and we support the Special Olympics in reality. Special Olympics doesn't need it. Now. Some people would say, well, it's the seed money from the government that brings others in. And you could cut that down to three or four million and still get ninety one hundred million dollars outside of the government. So there's two lessons there. What is in politics? And libertarians in fiscal conservatives need to understand this don't start with Special Olympics and NPR because the money that you'll save is not worth the public relations blow back the comes back. What's worth it? What's worth losing your seat in congress to be right? You know, they're always talking about history being on the right side of history. What's worth it to go after the debt and cut the budget is worth losing your seat? But being on the right side of history is going after the entitlements. You're not gonna do anything. If you actually were able to help social security becomes solvent. Over the next fifty or sixty years that would be on the right side of. History. But there will be a lot of public relations blow back as we know we've seen it before. But if you could if you could face it and beat it and maybe lose your seat while doing it. You will have done something that was worth it in the country. People need to understand this all the stuff that we talk about cutting whatever it is this program that program. It's only represents about thirty percent of the budget. The rest of the budget is entitlements entitlements. They go up automatically every year. I think based on cost of living adjustments, Medicare, Medicaid, social security, all the things that really matter that are falling apart. If we don't do something.
