"Gordon. You mentioned mile in your discussion of china today and the fact that xi jinping is creating a semi authoritarian regime. He's not mao. Help us to understand who now is and why for some i mean we talked about communism. My parents suffered under communism stalin. Lenin these are the figures we think of but the chinese regime is the deadliest of all we are talking about. Maybe fifty sixty million people killed in. The name of karl marx is a utopia told to us about the significance of mile in the building of the communist state and the significance of now still today. Yeah now is one of the early members of the chinese communist party which was generally formed around. Nineteen twenty one. The official birthday is july. First one thousand nine hundred ninety one mile was a enormous vigor dominated china and indeed dominated asia for quite some time When mouth was successful in forming the people's republic of china which was declared on october first nineteen forty nine mao became the most powerful china's theater and eventually he pushed out others And during mouse era the death toll was staggering far beyond any other leader.

"one thousand nine hundred ninety one" Discussed on Pantsuit Politics
"With you sarah about. I wanted to kind of revisit. Our conversation from our last outside of segment we were celebrating the one thousand nine hundred ninety one folks who are turning thirty this year and talking about how great it is to be entering our forties because age really helps you settle in and feel more comfortable in your own life and right after we had that discussion. I was finishing reading Harry potter and the order of the phoenix with jane. My ten year old. And i know that everybody has feelings about the writer of the harry potter on so i will just acknowledged that and offer my view. I am deeply disappointed in much of what she has said publicly about transgender individuals. And also that. I think art is transcendent and that these books are valuable and they prompt really valuable discussions in my life and so with that Asterisks i really love dumble doors reflection at the end of the order of the phoenix about the arrogance of age. How he has with. Harry made a lot of old man's mistakes because he has withheld information from harry that he should have shared and he was imposing on harry his own ideas about what he could handle and what he couldn't handle and when and how it would feel to learn certain things and i just thought it was a really good counterpoint to the conversation we were having not that. There's a tension between these two ideas but that in addition to feeling really comfortable and grounded as i get older i also need to kind of actively resist the that can accompany getting older. And i noticed you doing that. In a recent conversation. We had several of them. Actually where people will say something kind of disparaging about the way that kids get news or kids. Interact online or these of tiktok and you're really good at saying like hold on. There's a whole lot of value here. And i think that's just that kind of resistance of the arrogance of old age is an important practice. I'm not trying to bust on tiktok. First of all not trying to come under the fire i wanna be looped into krenz cringe culture. Along with lin-manuel miranda's tiktok. But i think that is hard. It's hard not into the arrogance of age when you have a twelve year old. Who acts like you never know what you're talking about right like that things that that's part of it. Is this sense especially when you're parenting of like a to this week my kids. I just went off. And i was like. Why am i even here. If you think. I'm wrong about everything. Maybe just raise yourself because clearly everything i've asked you to do everything i suggest is wrong. And so it's hard not to like feel like you're always in defense of your own knowledge not to like lean all the way in. Think you're always right because you have experiences and is just you know if the constant reminder that the world that i experienced is gone right and it's a new world and applying the conclusions i've made or the categories that i formed there just no longer relevant in so many ways. And you know i can hopefully draw lessons that are still applicable. But it's so hard not to lean into those same categories and not to think that because you know. I had a bad experience on facebook or i think that facebook is problematic that every social media platform is problematic in the same ways right. It's like we build those critical skills and not the only critical lesson we can apply. And i think that's just. It's just really hard i just don't want be. I don't wanna harden with age. I don't want to be a person who can't see the ways that the world is changing right in front of my eyes. But i think you know i was thinking this week about getting older and how. There's also just hopefully that the humility that comes from realizing that the list of regrets gets longer the list of things you look back on and you think i would have done that different or i wish i'd done that different or there's not going to be a do over like that mistake was made and it's just it's hard and it's hard not to let that make you brittle instead of pliable and i think the other opportunity. If you can do it for yourself you can do it for your kids is to look back on some of those hardest moments of being younger and think. Wow that was hard. That was a lot for you. Of course you didn't know how to handle that. Of course he felt this way. Of course you were afraid of that. And i find that the more that i'm able to see my own childhood and youth through that lens the more grace i have with my daughters and that's something i want to practice all the time and i just wanna make sure that i'm learning as much from them as they are from me and not only learning from them about myself. Which is i. Think a huge part of parenting right. You learn so much about yourself from your kids but also that i'm learning about the world from them. They say some interesting things. They asked some interesting questions. They have some beautiful insights ellen. The other day said the trees. Just keep whispering. And i wanna know what they're talking about and as post on twitter. That's my favorite. Take on cicadas. now But i love that perspective and i wanted to be awake to it and i want that to not just apply to my children but to all of the people who are younger than i am including people who get their news differently who are falling into generational stereotypes just like i do. The people who are rolling there is that of course. An elder millennial is bringing up harry potter. Like all of that is okay and all of it belongs together. And i think the more that i can see that see the value of every point along the spectrum of age the kinder. I'm going to be kind of in the deepest layers of myself and the more open. I'm going to be. And i think that circles back to that sense of. How do we handle something. Like critical race theory. that's so challenging that can create a lot of anguish. that is hard to think about. It makes you question yourself. I think it's keeping that softness of experience. Yeah i mean. I just have to always watch myself because i want to do it right. I want to do it right. I showed griffin instagram real about teenagers in parenting teenagers. And he said just because you show me all the psychological stuff doesn't mean i'm gonna feel any different and i thought yeah you're right like i wanna i wanna hack it right. I want to be able to like bring all the clarity and lessons. That all these experts available to me can provide and what like eliminate the struggle. It doesn't work like that. I really wish it did. But it doesn't. The struggle is inherent in parenting and aging. And the whole thing. And it's just it's.

"one thousand nine hundred ninety one" Discussed on Boston Public Radio Podcast
"It it interrupted the entire supply of the feedlots that are often family farm owned but it's small businesses and animal raising animals supply. So it's going to result probably in slaughtered animals who going to meet just euthanized and buried the way the chain disruptions of the early pandemic did last year so it's dangerous to be subject and this vulnerable to a software attack and it's happening in other industries across the country and so the idea that you've got cattle you're feeding them. They're ready to go to the slaughterhouse. You need that. Solder has to be open to continue the supply chain that's being broken and it can impact farmers as well as raising meat prices. You know one of the thing. I don't know if this will go anywhere. But one of the things amazed. Because i embarrassed say i never even heard of this company until the cyberattack they control twenty percent of all the meat processing in the united states of america one company of course he could say well amazon controls fifty percent of online which is another nightmare. That's problematic is it not have that much power in a critical industry. In the hands of one you can live without amazon. Most americans can't live without meat. Is that not a problem. The meat supply is way too centralised way too huge and jbs just not the brand name. That smithfield is known as of course owned by the chinese By chinese owners. So it's the largest meat supplier in the world come and this affected halted slaughter. It's a slaughter houses in australia too. But the company controls twenty percent of the beef sold in the country to remember when one nebraska was it or north dakota plant a smithfield plantation counted for like twenty percent of all pork in the country and that was because worker safety and huge covert outbreak. So it began to bring attention to how dangerous centralized this industry is. Jordan kirby gums. We've been talking a lot this week. The hundredth anniversary of the racist attack on tulsa oklahoma burning people's homes killing of of as many as three hundred african americans. Living there this is a different angle about the thriving. Grocery store business that was in tulsa. Tell us about it first of all. It's beautifully written story. A story by cynthia green leaf and robin caldwell in the counter Everything read about the tulsa. Massacre is heartbreaking. If you've looked at the nineteen ninety. Three pbs american masters documentary Which had many survivors talking about it in the most moving way so there have been more recent documentaries but they don't have those primary voices. There's some of those in this piece in the counter but took the angle of hotels restaurants all kinds of local food businesses with in what was really a ghetto was also called the negro wall street so it was enormously successful And the city's african american population multiplied five times between nineteen ten and nineteen twenty those sentences so it was enormously thriving and there were millionaires who owned hotels and rooming houses and restaurants and caterers and grocers and they were wiped out burned and the most successful of them were accused of inciting the massacre. Of course they had nothing to do with it. It was entirely white accusations. They'd heard a white woman scream and immediately went into the area where african americans lived burned. It opened gun. Fire aerial attacks in the one thousand nine hundred twenty one Firebombs and learning tar balls. It was just horrible destruction but even one property that was by an african american hotel owner value of more than two point. Five million dollars in today's dollars. He never got it back and in fact because he was so successful it was a high profile target of these completely false accusations and one of the great lines that the author robin call had was the very community that prided itself on. Self sufficiency was now Eating handouts a punishment for the sins of those who stole from them you. The pain of the story is not just about what happened on those two days one hundred years ago. But it's also about what happened after when they tried to rebuild and how difficult it was made for residents who are committed to that community and again the angle taken in this wonderful story. You know your best qualities corby and you have a lot of them. Is you always as we all should give credit the people for their work rather than just talk about it. As if it's you know somewhere in the atmosphere and we just happened to grab it but the piece is great and it also focuses on what happened. I mean these family owned grocery stores which were the backbone of this community to a great degree obviously disappear. It becomes a virtual food desert for much of the time after that then. Some of these mass grocery retailers come in and albertson or whatever. It's called the final one that was there. That sort of is horrible. Is that that's what it's replacing community based family owned groceries that closed in two thousand eight so essentially this community that people spent a century of families trying to rebuild from this atrocity Essentially is a food desert in addition everything else. They've had to confront is definitely a food. Desert one of the ironies are very poignant aspects of the end of the nineteen ninety-three american masters documentary is how many of the speakers who of course were messing about the very tightly knit community the pride the separate high schools the excellence the academic excellence the excellence of achievement and ability to come into your own within that community in the sixties and seventies. There was not just white flight but many city residents including african americans wanted to move to the suburbs they were able to shop at all of the white owned markets and stores where jim crow laws had prevented them so there was voluntary flight. Out of greenwood and so there was a lot of nostalgia and ru on the part of the speakers and survivors about the loss of that community. Feeling as more opportunities were available. As we've said this number times margin. I but it bears repeating. How embarrassing and disgraceful. It is that so much of black history has been written out of american. History will repeat the story that until you know one of the pervert. I mentioned this the other night. I was lucky enough to have enough annette. Gordon reed the pulitzer prize on the other night. Who's written a beautiful book. Called on june teeth about her own family growing up in texas how they celebrated about the history of blacks. They are through slavery and beyond and the even after emancipation on juneteenth happened. Which by the way is not unlike even though on scale it's not as great not unlike what happened in tulsa in nineteen twenty one but the fact that they were not for donald trump's abominable behavior. He's ready said. I may june teens. Famous and in many ways he made tulsa massacre the famous. And i hope there's a lesson for all of us. It's not just that black history has been written out a history books but that we are so is uncurable inquiries the word whatever it is that we we. We are partly at fault. It seems to in that we are so accepting of this literally and figuratively whitewashed history of this country that something like this. The worst race massacre in our country's history at least one of them was unknown to us is just one of the horrifying in the counter and many of the new york times and washington post and other stories about it is how many african americans were completely unaware growing up purpose. These atrocities and very akin to a german idealistic young children became hippies growing up in the fifties through seventies zero idea of nazi atrocities. And the idea that these young people in their twenties now didn't grow up knowing what happened in their very own city in one thousand nine hundred ninety one it starts making you. Think about texas laws against Teaching systemic racism. Yeah yeah.

Women Share Why They Fight For Reproductive Justice
"Welcome back to ordinary equality. I'm jimmy wilson a writer editor and feminist activist. And i'm kate. Kelly human rights attorney and feminist activist. Today we're talking about an issue that has been undercurrent of a lot of what we've covered so far reproductive justice it's a framework created by black women to center our needs in the midst of a movement that has ignored us for far too long. This episode we're going to discuss some of the reproductive injustice. That continued post emancipation. And how it spurred the founding of a movement bill to address the inequity and the mistrust caused by centuries of reproductive oppression at the end of the episode will learn white folks myself included can do to better center marginalized and underrepresented voices in this conversation. And what organizations are doing on the ground to ensure reproductive justice the slave breeding industry we discussed in episode three left a painful and persistent legacy in this country. Professor jennifer morgan talked about how the historic commodification of black bodies set the stage for ongoing mistreatment of folks embedding generational trauma that persists today that shamas sits beneath much more recent oppression of reproductive rights throughout most of the twentieth century. Eugenics campaigns flourished in the united states quickly becoming the dominant scientific view. The goal was to exterminate all so-called undesirable qualities in society through often-forced selective breeding and sterilization mental illnesses criminal records unwanted racial traits low intelligence levels and even poverty were considered undesirable indicators leading scientists. Believed that all these traits could and should be selectively bred out of the human population by any means necessary as we now know all of these ideas have since been proven to be as false as they are immoral. Time and time again. In the heyday of eugenics thirty-three states allowed involuntary sterilization on groups lawmakers claimed were unfit have children in california mental institutions. Alone about twenty thousand for sterilizations between nineteen o nine and nineteen seventy-nine unsurprisingly. People of color in immigrants were far more likely to be selected as an undesirable group worthy for sterilization mainstream. Scientists pushed these views. As fact margaret sanger the founder of planned. Parenthood got involved in the eugenics movement as she tried to promote reproductive rights. On october sixteenth. Nine hundred sixteen sanger opened the first birth control clinic in the united states. In order to push the idea of birth control rights forward. She consorted with leaders in the ever growing eugenics movement. She even personally advocated for selective breeding herself in one thousand nine hundred ninety one article. She wrote quote. The most urgent problem. Today is how to limit and discourage the over fertility of the mentally and physically defective as damning as that is. There's more to the story. Here's loretta ross. A professor at smith college and former national coordinator of sister song women of color reproductive justice collective on sanger's legacy her involvement in movement. But i also contextualized wbz devos was vaulted with the jenex movement. And so because it was a popular pseudoscience at that time a lot of people were involved in it. And so to single out margaret sanger as the demon is trying to eliminate the black race is just bad historical research because in fact. She was far ahead of her time. Even i called in a sectional list one day because in nineteen teams retired nineteen sixteen. She about poverty. She wrote about racism she wrote about all the inner sexual issues. We're talking about now. One hundred years later she was so ahead of her time and so she was an accident. Early intersection analyst. Who made some mistakes. But then everybody i know. Who's a human being makes. Mistakes if i wanted to do an analysis of everything dr martin luther king junior it wrong. It's an attention. But maybe they demonize him as they do margaret sanger. Many anti-choice advocates claim. That singer sought to eliminate black people from america altogether. That couldn't be less true. She focused the spread of birth control on poor communities many of which were largely populated with people of color. But it's because they were more likely to be susceptible to unwanted pregnancies and she wrote in one thousand nine fourteen enforced. Motherhood is the most complete denial of women's right to life and liberty. It's definitely disturbing to read about many of sanger's eugenic spaced beliefs. Today though she later repudiated everything. About the idea of selective breeding we still have to contend with the damage her involvement in the movement when a well known figure participates in such a harmful ideology it may provide others the justification to do the same. Her language may also have sowed increased wariness and communities of color after atrocities committed by nazi germany on earth. The terror born from the disgusting ideology of eugenics the vocal public support for the movement fizzled and most sleep died in the united states. But for sterilization continued behind the scenes for decades and still takes place today as we'll discuss later in the

"One thousand nine hundred ninety one. That's actually is my birthday. Oh you're right mark. I should have said it then. Fiftieth birthday according to write who okawa founder. The religions aim is to bring happiness to humanity by spreading the truth happy science before its foundation this. Mr ochoa published various books of spiritual messages that claim to channel the words spoken by religious and historical figures such as jesus christ confucius and something that i can't pronounce sounds like a very good religion. I thinking that it goes down. Dr clog like this. All sounds pretty harmless right. It goes down a hole. Just like your saturday nights now so harmless. But i assure you though it is saturday recording recorded rabbit holes of information though we go. Yes this sounds harmless. But i assure you most fucking lee certainly is not so to get more into this. Would help to go into the history of this mr row. Oka- he was born in takashi. Nakagawa in nineteen fifty-six. I'm the postwar decades in japan had seen a surge in new and novel forms of religion that blended important new age texts with long standing traditions. It was in this soul searching. Malange that mr okabe came of age he attended tokyo university and seemed poised to become a businessman of all things in the early nineteen eighties. He joined one of the country's largest trading firms. Instead he spent a. You're working in its manhattan office interesting. But then he would go on to pursue another very different career. I guess it's still business as well. Save around this time. He came to believe he was in contact with wiseman from the past like buddha and jesus they told him he was spiritually chosen to redeem a world. Gone to ruin okay and it said in the article who is he to say. No jesus the chosen one not me things. Jesus it was up to me. He later wrote to gather up all the peoples of the world into this new faith. This is how colts starting. That's a good word for this. He returned to tokyo where he tapped into the city's burgeoning metaphysical scene and attracted a following and started the happy science religion. So it sounds so silly like in in japanese it sounds totally legit but an english translation. There's going to be. Oh that's true well and there's going to be some some comparisons here some craziness so so first of all. Do they worship anything. yes happy. Science worships a deity named l. Can tara t. a. r. e. which almost seems like spanish component qatari. But we'll see elkin tear to keep it more. Japanese who they believe is the highest god of earth the lord of all the gods. They believed that l. Qatari was originally an alien from venus. Who created life on earth at three hundred and thirty million years ago and that is the same entity that has been worshipped at different times as the different gods that we worship. It's all elkin tear so remember space alien from venus at first. Mr okawa was just a channel for these far-flung spirits but then things get so much crazier eventually..

It was the old two holes in the head and stir version. But it's rumored that freeman would often break out the ice pick and route around to the ice sockets for old time sake but we don't know for sure if he did that with rosemary but folks love theorized over the years. Apparently rosemary was fucking awake. The entire time reciting poems and talking to the doctors it said they knew the procedure was over when she stopped talking. All i know immediately the realized their mistake to put it lightly to fucking late right after. I've been holding my raids after the procedure. Rosemary lost her ability to walk or talk. I wonder why rooting around in your brain. The poor girl spent twenty years institutionalized unable to speak walk or even fucking see her family only after her father suffered a major stroke. Did her mother whose name rose also visit her daughter. Panicked and confused and fucking angry. Rosemary actually attacked her mother unable to express her feelings of rage. As right. if there's any good to come out of rosemary's ordeal it was the kennedys realization of what they had done by abandoning their daughter. Eventually themselves became champions for the mentally disabled loss of motor function caesar's and a complete disassociation with society and the world were common symptoms of lobotomies. So thank god. We don't still practice that shit today. But the procedure is referenced. Throughout the fifties and sixties pop culture most memorably in literature in sylvia plath book the bell jar and in film with jack nicholson's infamous performance in one flew over the cuckoo's nest. What super frightening. Amy is thinking about the number of people who are essentially tortured against their will. Mental patients deemed quote insane but by like nine thousand nine hundred fifty standards so that could literally mean anything again. There are stories and cases all of the internet's if you're looking to find out more gruesome news out there for you enclosing though i should mention that there certainly were patients who underwent lobotomies voluntarily. Why the fuck win any whenever agree to do that. You might ask. Well sadly not only with mental illness clearly misunderstood due to the lack of medical advances and that technology we have.

Ethiopias struggle to stay united
"Ethiopia has split once before in nineteen ninety-three. Eritrea Ethiopia had annexed in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, two voted to secede after a decades long war for its independence. That break was not a clean one. Another war between Ethiopia and Eritrea followed in the late Nineteen Ninety S. After which retrieve retreated into isolation militarization and paranoia because a sort of North Korea on the Red Sea. Ending hostility between Eritrea and Ethiopia officially accomplished as recently as two thousand eighteen was considered such a feat of deploying the see that it one. Recently, arrived Prime Minister B amid the Nobel. Peace Prize. I was a young soldier when well broke out between Utopia and. I witnessed firsthand the ugliness of war in frontline battles. There are those suave never seen war, but glorify romance is it They have not seen the fear they have not seen the Arctic. They have not seen the restriction or break nor are they failed the mournful and bitterness of war after the carnage WAR IS EPITHELIAL FAIL FOR ALL INVOLVED Ahmed may now face another test of his diplomatic capacities to stop another portion of Ethiopia setting up shop on its own this week the Ethiopian state of Gray held elections despite instructions from the federal government not to.

"We hope you've been enjoying the podcast right now I'm going back to something I did a little over a month ago, and that is taking. One of the TV shows I, produced and bringing it straight over to the podcast in audio format. Now, it's been mentioned a couple times that at a short TV series on a local network television in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, one, ninety, two, called almost live at laughs unlimited and then in the late eighties eighty, eight, eighty, nine, I had a full twenty-six show series again on a local affiliate and it was called laughs and it. was a live taping of the shows and then presented on television. This was before the evening at the Improv in some the other shows that came bit later it was kind of breaking new ground but since it was only local holy local people thought. So it didn't really take off but we sure had a lot of fun producing it in the entertainer seemed to enjoy doing the television productions. So let me tell you about this week show it was originally aired in nineteen, eighty eight. It was part of the laughs TV series and this is a terrific one it features headliner. Timber.

Bill & Ted Face the Music Review
"One, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, we met bill s Preston and Ted Theodore Logan in the movie bill and Ted's excellent adventure they returned in bill and Ted's bogus journey in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety one, and now almost thirty years later they're back in bill and Ted's face the music Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves return as well. Bill and Ted respectively, and this time they'll need not just their triumphant man to save the world but also their daughters I'm Stephen Thompson and I'm Linda Holmes we're talking about bill and Ted face the music on this episode of Pop Culture Happy Hour from NPR here with me and Steven from his home studio is plan Weldon of NPR's arts desk. Linda and also with us from his home in Washington DC, we have JC Howard who is a producer of NPR's Ted Radio Hour and how I built this I. J. C.. Good to have you back good to have you back. So if you are all not familiar, there's not a lot setup that you need or these films except to say that Bill and Ted were introduced to us as teenage bro Friends who had a band and just wanted to have a triumphant band when they were older and eventually they got sucked into time travel and picking up different historical figures, and later we're going to try to save the world and there was. A whole story where they were going to ultimately right a great and triumphant song it's it is a surprisingly complex canonical story of which you need to know practically nothing in order to enjoy I think these films Stephen now that I have thoroughly set the table kind of what is your attachment to bill and Ted these movies. If you have one, well, I've seen bill and Ted's excellent adventure. A BUNCH OF TIMES I've seen bill and Ted's bogus journey a couple times. These are movies that have kind of existed on the wind for the last thirty years. I re watched these movies within the last five years I. Think I talked about the. What's making me happy on this show but still kind of needed to go back to be reminded of what happens in them going into this movie I mean this movie is coasting on goodwill. There is a certain amount of fan service going on here. I mean I'm not sure how many people were clamoring to revisit these characters almost thirty years later but at the same time. Something really really smart happens in this movie and you can tell before you even start watching it, and that is that it is ninety three minutes long all three of these movies are about ninety minutes long and I think they understand that that is the perfect lengthier. There is a certain amount of sequel bloat here. The first two movies are incredibly Chintzy. The stakes in the first one are no greater than maybe Ted we'll get sent to military school and you're there's like the entire fabric of space time can be ripped apart. This is a very shaggy movie. I. Think there are stretches where it sags but. I do appreciate the number of updates. You don't have the gay panic stuff that really dragged down the earlier movies are no gay slurs in this movie. This movie bothers to give its female characters a little bit more agency the women who become their wives barely have any part to play in the other movies, and here you get more of that you get their daughters who are given kind of their own subplot. So I appreciate that it's not just rattling around with these two dudes who are now middle aged, but they're taking an interest in people outside of just bill. Yeah and you do get their daughters. The structure of this one is kind of that they go on one journey through time and their daughters meanwhile who are played by Samara weaving and bridget lending pain go off and tried to get a band together for their DADS to play with on this epoch song that's supposed to save the world. So you kind of have the one journey going on the other journey going on then naturally in the third act it all comes together and I did like those two performances from the daughter's there are also some kind of new faces in this one kristen Schall plays Kelly who is The daughter of Rufus who was the George Carlin character in the original JC it feels to me like you are too young to have a moustache attachment to these movies but I have been assured that that is not the case because television. Yeah. That's exactly right. I was actually super excited to hear this movie was happening and I'm going to show my age a little bit and say that I was born pretty close to the release of the First Bill and Ted Movie of Bill and Ted's excellent adventure. So my first encounter with these guys was as as they say a most impressionable youth. And I was one of what I can only assume are millions of kids who watch bill and Ted's excellent adventure every time it ran on cable TV. The thing about the first movie is the problem that they needed to solve was very simple. Billon Tade just needed a good grade right granted the solution to that problem was a little larger than life and included doctor who like time travel home box and all but the problem itself was simple. The second movie bogus journey was certainly a little nuttier. It had killer robots and aliens and the grim reaper. Didn't feel like it hit quite the right notes for me. No Pun intended. So win a third film was confirmed. The main question I had was like, what are they going to do? Are they going to try to recreate the success of the original and go back to simple run of the mill time travel Orlean into the bizarre and crazy and from just the trailer? It was clear that they weren't going to just lean into the bizarre, but they were diving in head first. But I think what separated this one from the nineteen ninety one sequel is that it has a lot more heart. The original movie was really about the friendship of bill and Ted and saving that they didn't seem to care as much about saving the future as much as they wanted to just make sure that bill and Ted could still just be friends. So it had this kind of surprisingly earnest quality and I think that was what was missing in the second film in this third one for all of its bizarreness in all of its doubling down on death in heaven and hell, and all these kinds of weird things. It really reignites the idea that there are friendships and. Relationships here that are worth saving. Yeah I think you're absolutely right that they go back to the relationship between those two guys being the center of the story and I. Think it's really funny. One of the things that I think is featured in some of the the trailer stuff but they are both married they both have you know lovely wives that you have met before since they got them from the past and they have relationships with their wives that are completely enmeshed with their relationship with each other. So they can't conceive of having individual marriages that aren't some. Like a four person marriage I thought that stuff was sort of funny because I think one of the things that carries over like if you're going to take these guys in age them thirty years you have to either assume that at some point they became more normal, which is a weird thing to assume about bill and Ted. Or you have to assume that they are still very bill and Ted, which would mean that they are still kind of very fixated on this idea that they are a duo and they are always together and they are each other's right hand Glenn you had indicated on twitter that. You perhaps did not have the same nostalgia for these characters that perhaps I have and others may have what is your take care? All right. The ticker about to hear from me Linda Holmes is going to be a subjective it's rigorous. It's clear eyed it is on demand by the gauzy scream nostalgia because unlike all y'all I never saw these movies until this week just to prepare for the show and I didn't see him for very simple reason I didn't have to I. Mean I was a junior in college nineteen, eighty, nine I was studying marine biology. I was dating a string of profoundly unfulfilled women and. Being. On a college campus and eighty nine and not here boobs heinous strange things are afoot at the circle k just over and over and over. So I felt like I got it. And think about the time late eighties early nineties mainstream. American. Comedy was kind of stuck in this catchphrase based mode and I was like, okay. I don't need to see this while I've seen them all now and I'm here to tell you. Sure I guess that's your thing. I like the Guy Listeners of the leads I. think that's the appeal here but left only once an excellent adventure. It's a visual gag that gets tossed off. It's a Freud at a mall holding a corn dog and it's like, okay, fine. You got me I mean it's low hanging fruit, but you got. And in face the music this new film shore on Paper Samara, Weaving Kristen Schaal Holland freaking Taylor they are gunning for me they are coming. But ultimately didn't stick. It's not supposed to. That's not what it's for. It just evaporates on contact with the eyeballs and maybe that's exactly what the world needs. Right now is dumb sweep dumb but I

Eilean Mor Lighthouse Keepers - Scotland
"Setting for this story revolves around the Flan in aisles. Lighthouse the seventy five foot. Lighthouse was constructed between eighteen ninety five and eighteen ninety nine and cost about six thousand nine hundred pounds sterling which is a great British pounds and that's equivalent to about million dollars in two thousand nineteen money The Lighthouse was first lit on December seventh eighteen ninety nine so this lighthouse sits on. I lean more which literally means large island in Scottish Gaelic and is part of the plan. An aisles. A small island chain on the west coast of mainland Scotland. The islands have been devoid of permit residents since the automation of the flat. Isles Lighthouse in one thousand nine hundred ninety one. So Joe Have you ever bad into the Scotland? Scotland or Ireland. I have I have not either. It's like a lot of things it's on the list. The aisles provide nesting population of seabirds most notably the Atlantic. Puffins there is also a population of rabbits brought to the island by the lighthouse keepers other than Sea Birds in rabbits. There's no real hostile animals on the on the island so That'll rule out any kind of animal attack in the story. Yeah the island of Eileen more for centuries was regarded as a magical place with cer- a certain powerful aura surrounding it sheep herders. Who are the only ones knowns regularly visit? The island called it the other country and believed to be populated by spirits a fairy folk elves and supernatural beans as well as giant birds. Which were said to prowl the area so sounds like a pretty terrifying island. I actually don't want to visit it now. What's funny is it's really small islands just kind of flat. Yeah I won't say flee it's not like plateau wish but I mean it's not like it's huge and jagged so it's kind of funny to think about you think about people back then and there's not much going on so their imagination goes wild. Yeah that's all I can think of is like if you're a sheep herder and you gotta go to the island with your sheep every now and then like you've nothing else to do in expert thinking about this stuff. Yeah it's probably like a self fulfilling myth they hear it from somebody and then you know they probably morphed into these crazy. Stories of supernatural means giant birds over centuries of elephants. Yeah so Yeah the sheep herders and fishermen who visited the island were said to US special rituals to protect themselves from these magical island inhabitants and were said to communicate with them through a special dialect just for this purpose so these guys taking it serious yeah. They formed their own language to to speak with these spirits. So nine thousand nine hundred style. Lopping yeah there. You Go Even before the incident at the lighthouse there have been several stories about mysterious creatures and other things that gave people pause about the island so it sounds like if you lived back in that time. It's it's not somewhere he'd go with your family for vacation. You'd probably try to avoid the island. Yeah I think it exists solely basically to provide the lighthouse and to keep shifts from basically crashing into this island chain. So we'll talk about the lighthouse keepers of the. Eileen more they had if you can imagine a relatively easy job they worked in shifts with three men on and one enjoying two weeks off at all times. Okay so they're always three guys there in one guy off going back. Home was on the island at the time. The three men working that lighthouse that day. Where James do qat? He's forty three years old. Donald MacArthur Forty and Thomas Marshall. Who's twenty eight so I'm GonNa go right into the time line since it was a long time ago? It's based off of diary entries and captain's logs of the boat that was approaching to relieve a one of the men at the lighthouse. So on December Fifteenth Nineteen Hundred Captain Holman aboard the American steamboat. The Ark tour pass by Eileen Moore and notice that the lighthouse was out of operation so this is December fifteenth home and sent out a wireless telegram informing the mainland of the issue. It was for unknown. Reasons not immediately passed onto the northern Lighthouse board which is who is in charge of administering lighthouse. In addition to this First Oversight The lighthouses regularly monitored by telescope from the nearby. Lewes island by a guy named Roderick. Mackenzie Mackenzie had failed to notice that the light was out. The assumption is that there was thick mist in the area had obstructed views since it was just by a telescope for over a week. Known was sure what had happened on the island so they noticed the light was on the fifteenth. Yeah on December twenty sixth in one thousand nine hundred Captain Jim Harvey was bringing the fourth attendant. Joseph more so that has no relation to the name of the island is just coincidence. That the guy's name was more and they're going to the Eileen more so he was going to the lighthouse as the relief Attendant as the ship approached the island. He noted that something was off the re. The relief flag was not flying and no one was waiting the arrival at the landing of the more so he sounded the whistle on the boat and shot a flare to try and catch lighthouse keepers attention but the island continued to remain silent. So Joseph Moore wrote ashore in a row boat and went up the stairs from the from where he docks the boat that went up to lighthouse and according to reports from more himself. The replacement lighthouse keeper suffered an overwhelming sense of foreboding on his long. Walk up to the top of the cliff so he can almost feel. There is something not right so once at the lighthouse more notice something was immediately wrong the door the lighthouses unlocked and in the entrance hall. Two of three oilskin coats were missing. More continued onto the kitchen area where he found a half eaten food in an overturned chair. Almost as if someone jumped from their seat in a hurry to add to this particular scene the kitchen clock it also stopped more. Continue to search the rest the lighthouse but found no sign of lighthouse keepers. He ran back to the ship to inform Captain Harvey who subsequently ordered a search. The Island for the missing men known was ever found Harvey. This is the captain. The ship quickly sent back telegram to the mainland which in turn was forwarded to the northern Lighthouse Board headquarters in Edinburgh the Telegraph read. A dreadful accident has happened at the Flanigan's the three keepers Kat Marshall and the occasion and the occasional have disappeared from the island on our arrival there. This afternoon. No sign of life was to be seen on the island fired a rocket but as no responses made managed to land more who went up to the station but found no keepers there. The clocks were stopped and other signs indicated that an accident must have happened about a week ago. Poor fellows they must bend blown over the cliffs or drawn trying to secure a crane or something like that night coming on. We could not wait to make something as to their fate. I have left more McDonald and boy master in two seamen on the island to keep the light burning until you make other arrangements will not return to Obama until I hear from you. I have repeated this wire to moorhead in case you're not at home. I will remain at the Telegraph office tonight until it closes. If you wish to wire me. So that was his telegram a few days later Robert. Morehead the Board Superintendent who both recruited knew. All three men personally departed for the island to investigate the disappearance. His investigation of the lighthouse found nothing over and above. What more had already reported that is except for lighthouses? Lock so this work. It's interesting muirhead immediately. Noticed that the last few days of entries entries were very unusual on the twelfth of December. Thomas Marshall the second assistant wrote of severe wins the likes of which he had never seen before in twenty years he also noticed that James do cut the principal keeper had been very quiet and that the Third Assistant William MacArthur had been crying. I'm just picturing the scene it. It just reminds me of In movies where there's like people can find somewhere. How before something really bad happens. They're all just acting really strange and yeah. They started to go mad a little bit. Yeah yeah that's that's I I'm with you and that's exactly what I was thinking. So what's really strange about? The final remarks was that William Macarthur was a season Mariner it was known on the Scottish mainland as a tough brawler. So why would he be crying about a storm? And that's I mean if you can just imagine if you go there now yeah I mean bar fights drinking that type of thing so you have this guy here. That's like a big tough guy. You know brought to tears over a storm. I mean initially people from Scotland. There tough tough people. This is a third hand story that someone I know that's from Ireland. Told me you know like when they say tough brawler this happened. I ten fifteen years ago. He was in a bar in Scotland in this American walked in and kind of like a Dorky looking American and ask where the bathroom was and apparently somebody in the park didn't like that and literally bottled him. And that bottling is just. They broke a beer bottle over the back of his head. I don't know the story is true. But that's sound like stereotypical Scotland Bar. Like so I I believe it. Yeah WanNa believe it soccer team just lost and they're pissed off and yeah football team. Mike you'RE GONNA get body falls. Sorry but yeah. They're tough so log entries on the thirteenth December state at the storm is still raging and that offer men had been praying but why would three experience lighthouse keeper safely situated under Brand New Light House? That was one hundred fifty feet above sea level. Be Praying for storm to stop. This should be perfectly safe in theory. Even more particular peculiar is that there were no reported. Storms in the area on the Twelfth Thirteenth Fourteenth of December. In fact the weather was calm in the storms that were to batter. The island didn't hit until December seventeenth. So that's kind of what get strange about this because it's not some island off the mill nowhere. Yeah it's very close to mainland. So they would know if there were storms like that actually occurring at that time. Yeah and like you said they were all very experienced. They were stationed in a brand New Light House.

Vic Syracuse Homebuilt Aircraft Council Chairman on His Building History
"So how'd you How did you first get involved with With ea where you involve with a chapter when you were younger where that come from. No I if I think back to my first touch on was I. I started building an RV for that was something I always wanted to do. Since I was a kid and I saw. I probably a teeny two or something. On the cover of a mechanics illustrated you can build bigger airplanes. And so I think it was twenty five. I started building rb. Four and Went and visited the local chapter. It was quite a bit different back then. Quite honestly it wasn't quite as welcoming to youth. It was more of an older gentleman's club and they seem to want to sit around and talk more than they did want to build and I wanted to build so one or two visits. I just stayed at home and spent that time building as opposed to a bill chapters. And I I'm at Air Venture was One Thousand Nine hundred ninety one when I came here after I'd already started building. The RB foreign got my first ride with Dick Van. Brunson in the four wow. That's that's a great interaction. What was it led you to the RV to begin with the first of many RV's actually you'll get a kick out of this so like every person trying to build their first airplane. You're on a budget and trying to figure things out and so I'm trying to look at some of the cheaper. Airplanes were to build and The one that was out there at the time I think was a monet model and I realized I didn't have welding skills so next thing I know we're sitting at the dinner table. One night and private pilot magazine came and there was an RV. Four on the cover doing a loop. And I made a comment at dinner to my wife that I really liked to build an airplane someday and her words were well. It'd be nice if you quit talking about it. So that's all I needed to hear. Order was in the mail the next day I love that woman to. That's that is terrific just out of curiosity the RV for you. GotTa ride in from from Dick. Was that the prototype. Yes it's the one in the museum right now. Yes that was the first survey you've ever had a ride and was the one that sets the display so you do have to point out how old I am music. There's a lot of airplanes are now in in thanks. I'm well Oh my goodness so How long did it take you to build that first? Rv for? And what was that experience? Like so I kind of didn't know what I was doing. I'd been building. He's gets for a good part of my life. You start on page one page ten. You've got something and Building like radios teams up to color. Tv's okay did you ever built the weather station the beneath get weather station. I didn't do that. Dad and I did that together. Only father something projects like that hands on that we did. That was a lot of fun. Yeah I missiles heath kit days me to have my silla scope and once in a while but that's just when you look like a bond villain or something so Well BACK TO VIG. You asked me about trying to remember the question. Sorry the question is what was the how long it took out the RV here. I am this twenty five year old kid and again it was an old guys club and I I've always been one. Once you start you keep going and you get it done and So I kept calling pestering fan. Hey Winston xe kit coming so I started out as serial number. Two thirty nine ended up being the twelfth. One finished vowed I think it was about twenty two months later. Twenty four months later maybe was the first RV for Sun and fun and the first one east of the Mississippi rivers a lot of fun. What do you remember about that? First Flight? The first airplane you built. It was reminds me of here a little bit in that. It was on a New Year's Eve in Cleveland. Ohio and it was minus ten degrees. So we all know what kind of performance you are visa but when you're in an RV four with only. I think I had ten gallons of fuel in it and it was minus ten. You can imagine how that thing Klein about ten thousand minutes. You're not supposed to need oxygen during phase one remember very hilarious so we have a VHS tape. Tom You probably look that up in the library but as a kid okay. So it's funny here. It is it's minus ten degrees outside and I land in the family's all around and I'm I'm I'm on cloud nine. I'm so excited and everything and in video you can see everybody else. Kind of standing around freezing for my wife finding says getting we go inside Your Square John. Ten feet tall Having just mastered this role as test pilot. What did you fly to get ready to to get comfortable in the RV farm you had the right and the other RV but did you. Was there. Another airplane you flew to get deal skills Sharp and all that sort of thing was a lot of ratings at that time including I was doing a tail wheel instruction outer let As a good practice there was a friend on the field and he had a decathlon so that very morning I went up I with him and did three takeoff and landings just to make cert- draining back then right which is something. We're trying to change quite a bit today and no transition team and NO SECOND PILOT ADDITIONAL PILOT PROGRAM. No Load No. Ea Flight Test Manual. But but they had electricity and things. Tom I mean it wasn't it wasn't that long ago is our guest. Okay civic after the after the four. What did you go onto to build? So when I had the four for probably I think three years or so and Basically had a four place family so it got to be not a whole lot of fun having this to place airplane and about that time. Prescott pusher came into being and they came to us with a lot of splash and unfortunately I got caught up in that real splash and again I was the first one to actually finish the Prescott pusher and did manage to fly. Here Dash Gosh The first year we finished it but You know a number. A number of other people behind me Came to demise in that aircraft it was not represented very well and so we realized at that time the best thing to do for four place airplane was probably a rant or have partners and So built another place airplane Kit Fox and Most of the time you're flying by yourself anyway or with one other family member and then we We had partners in one. Eighty two. And then bonanza so that filled the four-place niece for awhile until I was could convince Dick van grunts into doing RV ten which took about ten to twelve years and so you're saying that That the RV ten exists is to shut you up. We'll tell you this alone. I came to air venture. I think it was nineteen ninety-six. After pestering van every year for however many years my wife and I were probably twenty feet from his booth and he sees us coming up and he points right at us and says all right. I'm going to do one. Excellent and you also I mean obviously in addition to the aircraft. A you've built you've you've test flown. Many aircraft done pre buys them in the aircraft also. Da are as well does this represent a free FAA signing off aircraft But one in particular that of that we all have some connection with is the one week wonder the RV twelve iso we built an adventure In in two thousand eighteen. You did the first flight on that I did. That was fun so I'm always have an emotional connection to that aircraft. Matter of fact at lunch I was just explaining that to a couple of your new hires. Here go take me take advantage of flying club you have here and then rb twelve with special. I was just flying in on Sunday. Good for you good for you. John Egan and I you're part of the the West Coast tour of the aircraft couple months ago so we got the flight from From Phoenix All the way back to Oshkosh need. That's right you picked up. After David and Serena dropped it off so that was that was terrific thing getting that airplane out there and show you off two chapters and that was literally the Monday after adventure right. It was correct. It was done on Sunday. Flown on Monday. Yes yes and now we flew Monday. Evening is a postcard
Russia's plans for Crimea were long in the making
"What America has officially calling a Russian invasion of Ukraine Russian troops reading out throughout the strategic Crimean Peninsula before we get into how such a stop might occur. Let's take a look at why a theory circulating for Awhile has held that Putin sees the annexation of Belarus as a means for extending his tenure in the Kremlin under constitutional term limits. He has to stand down in two thousand and twenty four but those of course are the constitutional term limits of Russia a new country the Republic of Russia and Belarus. Perhaps would have a new constitution. Which might will be less concerned with such niceties however more recent shenanigans suggests that Putin is pursuing other means of installing himself as president for life though he may also be keeping in mind that he will timed unsuccessful. War rarely hurts and incumbent and or Russia's coveting of Belarus might be an expression of Russia's eternal and deep seated desire to put distance between itself and its enemies actual or imaginary and maintain what Moscow still sees as its rightful dominion Russia's recent incursions into Georgia and Ukraine have been obvious enough endeavors to keep those countries out of the wests orbit and more importantly out of NATO. She wouldn't yep criteria today. The hysterics need to stop and the Cold War rhetoric needs to be rejected and the obvious thing admitted. Russia is an independent active participant on the international sane like other countries it has international interests. That should be considered and respected important. When you look at you when you still there is also and it can never be holy discounted. The fact that much of Russia's foreign policy appears currently to revolve around just annoying everyone else for the sake of it inflaming. Russia's concerns about Belarus a recent indications that Russia can no longer take Belarus or its president for granted. Lushenko who is as his name suggests of Ukrainian descent refused to recognize Russia's annexation of Crimea. In two thousand fourteen and has been quite supportive of Ukraine generally. He has resisted Russia's pressure for close ties even as Russia has squeezed energy supplies to Belarus. He has reached out to the West. He has hitherto disdained sourcing oil from Norway and hosting. Us Secretary of State. Mike pompeo in Minsk it advocates wanted to help Belarus built its own sovereign country our energy producers stand ready to deliver one hundred percent of the oil. You need a competitive prices. The biggest energy producer in the world. And all you have to do is call us. We can't be part of some of the country. Lukashenko told his people last month. I can't betray you and dissolve Belarus even into brotherly Russia. If I agree to US Belarussians would eat me alive within a year. It might be tempting to interpret this. As pre election flag-waving Lukashenko will be seeking a sixth term in August. Were it not? For the fact that Belarusian elections tend toward the predictable indeed since independence in one thousand. Nine hundred ninety. One Belarus has not held a presidential election which Lukashenko has not won and often by these sorts of margins which have regrettably prompted suspicions among some petty fogging. Cynics that the results have had a certain preordained. Quality as for how a Russia this as Bellarusse conflict might unfurl. We've pretty much gotten the idea. From Russia's other recent military adventures they would be perhaps grim muttering about oppression of an ethnically Russian and all Russian speaking population which is about eight percent of Belarus and as recently as Monday Eagle Miroslav. A member of the upper chamber of Russia's parliament the Duma felt it necessary to pronounce upon a Social Media Storm which followed a dispute in Minsk cafe between a Belarusian speaking customer anti Russian Speaking Server balaclava-clad gentlemen in unbudged. Uniforms may arrive from somewhere. Certainly not Russia obviously in unmarked trucks and armored vehicles accompanied by smoking denials from Moscow. Nope nothing to do with us. Never seen these people or their russian-made weapons before. Probably just some lads on a stag do at Cetera. At which point as in Georgia and as in Ukraine Russia will have stick in Belarus's side which it can prod twist or pretend to withdraw as it sees necessary. Russia may also calculate that the West would be unlikely to risk much to ride to the rescue of an obdurate autocrat like Lukashenko. This might not be likely exactly but especially if one bets with form. It's not exactly unlikely either. That

Explainer 169: What is going on in Moldova?
"Moldova's forays into the headlines are rare explainer seeking to explain Moldova should probably therefore start with the basics. It's just next to the top, right hand corner of Romania alongside the border with Ukraine population, three million and change about the same size as Belgium independent since the collapse of the Soviet Union in one thousand nine hundred ninety one. If you have read or heard much about Moldova before, now it has probably been about the part of Moldova that wishes it wasn't part of Moldova. This is the strange geopolitical normally of the Preakness strove, Ian Maldivian Republic, better known as Transnistria a sliver of land squeezed between the Dniester river and Ukraine, which operates as a sort of Soviet Russia theme park. Transnistria still erect statues of Lenin flies. The hammer and sickle on its flag and has become a staple destination for chortling travel. Writings. Also in the least visited country in Europe. The fact is that more people visit my local Tesco every day, the visit Moldova every year, but it is in Moldova proper, where curious things are refute this week to the extent that as we go to where it's not entirely clear who if anyone is roaming the country. A Russia, this question has been imported for one society for years. And these elections are out exception through main players through Bharti's that will likely for the parliament, socialist party that has pro Russian Democratic Party that is rather for your being Italy formed position. Block are Coon, that is strongly, breer, opinion of these. Its roots in Moldova's, most recent general election back in February. It was a close run thing, the pro Russian socialist party finished first, but the pro e u Democratic Party and a alliance finished a close second and third respectively. Nobody had a parliamentary majority. Confusing matters further, where plausible allegations of vote-buying ballot stuffing and other shenanigans largely on the part of the socialists. Disdain to happen, and then people will regain their trust in the country, and then we'll start building democracy will strengthen the state's accuses which would what for citizens and not for some could be. After some months of inconclusive wrangling, this past weekend, the pro Russian socialists and the pro e u a alliance agreed to form an unlikely governing coalition to be led by the alliance's, Maya Sandhu previously, Moldova's minister for education, who would become prime minister Moldova's eighth prime minister this decade, the country is no stranger to political crisis. Cutting us Ohka. Tara. The legality of this arrangement was challenged by Democratic Party leader and Feltham, Leslie wealthy oligarch Vlad to blow hot New York v socialists and ako headed knitted that the principal common core's was preventing plot New York becoming any more powerful in Moldova than he already is plot. New York claimed vade narrowly missed the ninety day deadline for the certification of election results to form a new government, and that president eagle, Dodon himself, allied to the socialists, should therefore, have called new elections, Moldova's constitutional court known to be heavily staffed by associates of plot New York. Agreed with this interpretation of a technicality. Suspended president Dodon and replaced him with previous prime Minister Pavel Filip of Vlad, plot nukes, Democrats, as temporary acting president, Philip dissolved parliament and Cole. New elections for September sixth. But president Dodon Andy socialist ako alliance have refused to recognize this directive, this meant that by Sunday, roughly everybody in Moldova had grounds for suspecting nefarious hidden forces had enacted, a coup, d'etat against their preferred party by Monday, the socialist coalition. And the Democratic Party were each acting like they were in charge conducting Simitis rival cabinet meetings in Chisinau, Moldova's capital, Maya Sanders ministers met in parliament, parvo Phillips, in government house, students of history, will be aware of how will having to governments at once usually works out for a country. As to what happens in the days and weeks ahead, the only reasonable hope is, as little as possible, obscure local difficulties in this part of Europe have had a habit of spreading Russia, which has fifteen hundred troops. I'd like next door in Transnistria says it backs the socialist ako coalition. The US the EU and NATO have issued cagey statements calling for restraint dialogue and so on, but essentially respecting the February election results, and therefore, the socialist Achim coalition. There are some causes for up to mizzen the socialist Achim coalition is effectively, a government of national unity yoki together Moldova's pro Russian conservative forces. And it's pro e u center. Right. Which means it has support among all dove is all the generations, and it's younger urban middle classes as well as from Moscow and Brussels, it does in theory command, a handy, parliamentary majority. And if it has taken a stand on the principle, that one businessman shouldn't get to run an entire country. That surely cannot be a thing. From twenty four I'm from.
Never-before released Dr. Seuss book coming this fall
"New Dr Seuss book coming out this fall? It's going to be in bookstores on September third.

I guess I'd have to really see the book to see if it was a fair attempt. But in historically, those things don't work out. Very well retry to finish geniuses work for them after they pass away. I don't know. It looks pretty good to me though. It looks good. But I it is weird. He's he's he's gone. So they're taking of this finished manuscript. I'm going to be a wait and see to. I can't really I'm not going to be fair foul until I see it. But I've seen clips of it. And it looks. It looks pretty good is what I'll say. I think it looks pretty good. But I don't know I agree with you. I what's it called the jury's out. It is called. Oh, the horse. Just say, I don't even know. I can't even remember Dr Seuss is Dr Suess. Horse. Museum. I think it's such a fine line behind like honoring somebody who's passed away. And then just riding on their coattails published book and make some money. Like, I mean. For example, like prince like after he passed away his family or whoever was in charge of his state did a bunch of things that he was vocal about not doing. I did it. Anyway. They charged for the ticket, of course, because they're making money on it right now, if this was like, a big charity foundation where they're gonna donate these books to like schools around the country or something like I would be one hundred percent on board whether or not it was a good project. But I'm sure that they're just a I'm actually you know, what I'm just going to go with foul. Wow. You just changed your mind. Go with foul. I'm on the fence. I wanna see it. I I'm going to see

That's so you you what about Disney films like with Ursula and the little mermaid you don't like evil. No. I didn't grow up watching Disney. So I'm not that familiar with them. Would you grow up watching? Yes. Or some shit. What do you? I mean, why first of all watch your tone?

Well, they assume marital. Sorry, sorry. When I say, they I I'm using the pronoun in term because I don't know if it's your mother she might identify. No, yes. My dad used to take me to museums. Allot? The other thing is I used to binge-watch all cable shows that existed at my dad's on the weekends. Okay. So I had a very fractured relationship on the weekends. You're watching a ton of TV. Yeah. And during the week, you're watching almost none. Right. Okay. So I mean, that's not too. Yeah. But then when I stopped going there. I don't know how it all panned out, actually. But yeah, I was limited compared to other people. There's a lot of things I haven't seen. Well, I didn't have a television for about three years from probably ten to thirteen so Mormon by choice.

AG nominee William Barr defends Robert Mueller's investigation
"One of our top stories of the day. William bar is President Trump's next pick to be the next attorney general of the United States. He's testifying on Capitol Hill today. Take a listen to a portion of his comments, he generals responsibility to enforce the law even-handedly and with integrity. The attorney general must ensure that the administration of Justice the enforcement of the law is above and away from politics. Nothing could be more destructive of our. System of government of the rule of law or the department of Justice as an institution than any toleration of political interference with the enforcement of the law. I believe this is strongly today as I did twenty seven years ago. Indeed more strongly we live in a time when the country is deeply divided in the current environment. The American people have to know that there are places in the government where the rule of law not politics holds sway and where they will be treated fairly based solely on the facts and the even handed application of the law. The department of Justice must be that place. I did not pursue this position. And when my name was first raised I was reluctant to be considered. And indeed proposed a number of alternative candidates. If confirmed, I will serve the same independence. I did in one thousand nine hundred ninety one

If confirmed I will serve with the same independence. I did in one thousand nine hundred ninety one. At that time when President Bush chose me he saw no promises and asked only that his attorney general act with professionalism and integrity. Likewise, President Trump has no assurances promises or commitments from me of any kind either express or implied. And I have not given him any other than that. I would run the department with professionalism and integrity. As a general, my allegiance will be to the rule of law, the constitution and the American people this is how it should be. This is how it must be. And if you confirm me, this is how it will be what would be the basis for voting against this, man. The only basis would be your assuming that he's lying.

Moves Brad have you on board for this hour. Money power. Boy, the headline stocks set Bal another ten percent before finding a bottom. According to the piper Jaffray technician. Stocks due for a recession and a tumble CNBC's are cash. Stating that every decade since the eighteen fifties in the US has had a recession. We haven't had one yet. So it's gonna happen. My advice, you do not obsess over fear of recessions. Wayne, why also last hour I was discussing the seven-year asset class return forecasts by none other than GMO. Jeremy Grantham, the G in GMO also wanna talk about the market what's happening with the market right now because you know, we went from record highs. Everybody's now concerned that we're in the midst of a bear market, which is true, by the way for a lot of the SNP stocks down twenty percent from their high. But I'll get a chance to talk about that. But I wanna start today with the piper Jaffray prognostication. Just over a month ago, the standard and Poor's five hundred. Was setting record highs. According to leave now more than seventy percent of the indexes components isn't a correction or worse. With some high profile names like Twitter, Caterpillar, Ford and AMD deep in bear market territory. So what are you going to do about it? I mean this. This is really amazing to me because people will come out and say, yes, we're the stocks could fall another ten percent. But they sure as h won't tell you when because they don't know. And so what if they do? Another ten percent. When when you're up four hundred percents since the bottom back in March of two thousand and nine what the heck's ten percent. And will we recover along? We'll take for us to recover from another ten percent fall six months a year. I don't know. I do know this that obsessing about recessions, and so forth is not a good thing. You can go a long time without a recession. But art Cashin very highly respected person on Wall Street says that every decade since eighteen fifty we've had one. And since the great recession ended in two thousand nine. Obviously means we haven't had one this decade. But in reality. You can go a lot of years without having a recession. Australia hasn't had one since one thousand nine hundred ninety one according to Ben Carlson. Who's a researcher? And does this kind of research? Could we not? The entering into a period of time where we're not gonna have a recession. I find it highly unlikely to be honest with you in the near term. I don't know anything about the long-term. But I look at the economic numbers right now. An absent some squirrelly stuff with trades and so forth. That you have to hope that the president figures out a way to worm his way out of the pickle. He's gotten him with China now with Russia nuclear treaty and all that stuff. But but so far this dude is figured out. How to do that stuff? He's got the strangest way to negotiate, but it's it's pretty darn effective. So assuming he does and a lot of these companies that are freaking out like, Caterpillar and so forth. Because of tariffs with China at cetera et cetera. That too shall pass. No one ever said making money in the stock market was easy. No one ever said that it was easy. And it's not. But over a long time period you look at the charts. I mean, I'm not charter, it's okay. I hate looking at charts. I think it's a waste of time to look at charts unless you're looking at one like the past thirty or forty years and just put your finger at where it started thirty or forty years ago and put your finger where the other finger from the other hand, I should say where it is today. And you will see a nice line that goes from the bottom left to the top, right? That's what the stock market has done, historically. In between times. There have been some pretty wicked selloffs. I mean, pretty darn wicked selloffs we've had some pretty wicked ones over the last several years as a matter of fact. Since the market bottomed in early two thousand and nine. There have been corrections of minus sixteen percent minus nineteen point four percent. Minus twelve point four percent minus thirteen point three percent. And mine is ten point two percent. That's in the standard and Poor's five hundred and I can assure you every single time. The pundits came out of the woodwork said. Yep. It's over now. Harry dent probably said, Yep. This is the precursor to Dau three thousand. Which he has actually said in the past that the Dow was going to crash the three thousand and instead of crashing to three thousand it's stored the twenty five thousand. I mean. He's a smart guy. No question about it. He's from Harvard, and he's not the only one by the way. I saw Ron Paul the other day on some TV commercial, and he's expecting a whole world to go to heck and a Handbasket and many many many others. But let me repeat since two thousand nine we've seen the market, correct? By sixteen percent. Nineteen percent. Twelve percent thirteen percent and ten percent. So when I read about piper Jaffray prognostication that we're gonna fall another ten. Oh cares. Who cares? If you were smart enough to get out, and then doubly smart to know when to get back in then perhaps you would care, but I don't. All right, shifting gears to the market as I said, Jeremy Grantham produces his seven-year asset class real return forecasts and as of September thirty two thousand eighteen. Here's what he had to say. Now when I say real return that means after inflation. After inflation. US large-cap stocks after inflation. Minus five point two percent per year. For the next seven years. That doesn't look good. Now, I have to also tell you that Mr. Grantham has also been wrong small-cap, stocks, minus two. High quality stocks minus five. Large companies international minus point five small international companies, minus point four emerging markets. Plus three point two percent. So after inflation. Three point two percent. Which means a nominal return about five and a half percent. That's the best. You can do. According to grant them bonds. Don't look any better. US bonds flat for the next seven years. International bonds down minus one point eight emerging market bonds up two point two percent. Cash up one percent. So check this out the emerging markets have how do I say this? Really been sucking fair and wind lately. He had according to Grantham. That's where you should put your money. I'm not suggesting that you do. I am suggesting that your ten to fifteen percent or whatever you've allocated to the emerging markets stock and bond markets, you hang onto even though the emerging market stocks have been. But I'm also suggesting these stay the course with your plan when we come back. We'll talk more about the market where it's been and where it is year to date where it might be going and some ways to build wealth outside of the stock market. Jeremy Grantham is correct around.

Five seven zero folks. Helping you make better money. Let's talk about the GMO seven-year asset class real return forecasts, and it doesn't pretty at all. Real. Meaning after inflation. US large-cap stocks expected to earn a minus five point two percent after you account for inflation. Which means they're gonna lose three percent. Per year for the next seven years. Nominally? Crazy stuff man who wants to lose money in the market. International stocks pretty close to break even down a little bit. After inflation. But emerging markets are the only ones. That actually are above water three point two percent. And on the bond side. It looks equally as dismal. International bonds down minus one point eight percent. Emerging market debt up two point two percent. So it's just not looking all that hot. I'm gonna talk about some alternatives here in just a moment. But I thought that I would refresh everyone's memory on where we are year to date. In terms of the market performance. And this could change. Any moment because Marcus have been pretty volatile lately, haven't they? The Dow's up three point seven two percent. The NASDAQ is up seven point seven four percent. The Russell small cap index is flat point three eight percent. And the standard and Poor's five hundred is up four point zero nine percent. Now, if you've got an adviser, and they're charging fees. You're going to have to subtract that that's just from the index itself. Now bonds have been in the tank this year. And I wanna talk about this a little bit later, hopefully an opportunity to do that. But core US bonds are down minus two point four one percent. Long core bonds minus six point four four percent year to date. People buy bonds because they're supposed to be safe. But in a rising interest rate environment and can be nasty corporate bonds. Minus three point three two percent long corporate bonds. Minus six point five five percent. Government bonds, the safest of all. Minus two point two one percent. Intermediate minus one point five eight percent. Long minus six point three five percent. Make alone that the government this year. A long term loan twenty thirty years. You lost six percent mortgage. Bonds minus one point seven seven tips treasury inflation protected securities, minus two point six percent. Knowing that really looks okay and the bond world high yields are up one point six percent. And T-Bills cash basically one point four one percent. So where do you go to build wealth in a market like this? Well, number one is you do not. Bail on your stock market portfolio. But as I have mentioned for years and years and years looking at alternatives to the stock market can make some sense. And alternatives to the bond market as well. Alternatives to the bond market. Could be other forms of debt private debt and so forth. And you gotta look hard for this stuff. You need a very very good financial adviser. You don't have to look quite as hard in the insurance world because insurance companies compete favorably with bonds with certain annuities. We talked yesterday about multi-year, guaranteed annuity contracts. They compete with CDs virtually no risk if you hold until the end and you'll get a better rate of return from most companies, then you'll get from treasuries. Fixed annuities index to new itys variable annuities with guaranteed minimum withdrawal benefits, locking in some kind of a guaranteed income stream in the event the whole world collapses. Those are great ways for you to diversify away from the stock market, but still have the benefits of the stock market. If things do well if they don't do. Well, you're still okay because you locked in a guaranteed income stream for the rest of your life, which will probably translate into a bond like asset, and depending on how long you live. It could be a dog on good bond. But more importantly, it gives you the ability to wait out the storm in the stock market. So what are some of these fresh alternatives to the stock market? Well, we've talked about rental properties and vacation homes. A lot on this show. And there was a company now I forget their name. It'll come to me that evaluated. A lot of these different strategies in terms of how much orders yield street. How much it costs and how hard is it to do? So rental properties, the drop in home ownership rates is obviously led to a rental, boom. But you've got to be very very careful here because some markets you could lose your shorts in. So here's what they said about rental property and vacation homes. The setup is hard. It is got to do your homework time commitment is high. Money required, medium, twenty to one hundred thousand bucks, and the research is on you. Then they went to commercial property. You got to put a lot of money into this money required. Two hundred and fifty thousand time commitment medium setup again hard. Franchises like a subway or Dunkin donuts and all that you can earn ten percent. But it's very very difficult to make that work for you, unless you're the person behind the counter, and even then you're not going to get rich. Now, if you own twenty six Dunkin donuts or Jack in the boxes, you can make a fortune if they all work, but they're not all going to work perfectly. But your time commitment is high. The setup is hard the money required. Big fifty grand for the little Mickey Mouse franchises. And even Dan if you hired a manager you still got to watch over them. If you put fifty grand down, and he made ten percent five thousand bucks a year. I don't know if it's worth the risk. There's peer to peer lending this actually pretty easy to do. Go online, and you can get pretty decent rates of return. Anyway. Some alternatives at least to the stock market. I wouldn't get too crazy here big allocating some of your money to alternatives wise move. My preference is to find a fund that does these types of alternatives for you be willing to pay a fee, and let them do all the hard work. So you can sit back and go to Dunkin donuts.

I've got a couple of emails after the comments that I made on bonds yesterday. According to Morningstar's taxable bonded tables. Seventy three percent of the funds that they follow. Are down this year. Ninety percent of Muniz of lost money, so far and a lot of people are freaking out. Minds were safe. Well, bonds are safe. You just have to understand them and understand the role that they play in your portfolio. I mean in an ideal world. You'd figure out how much money you want to spend from your portfolio each year and ladder out some reasonably safe bonds and every year when the bond matures. You'd have the money go spend it and everything's cool. But as we discussed the other day. Most small investors get hosed when they do that. Because of the bid ask spreads and so forth. And you never really know what you're getting until you got it. So hence the bond fund over the years has come to fruition. And for the most part, they're pretty efficient way to buy bonds. In particular, if you're reinvesting all of the dividends, and you have them there for some form of safety. It's not what I would recommend you do with one hundred percent of your fixed income portfolio. But the question I get more than any other one on bonds is why do bond funds lose money. When interest rates are going up. I'm buying them for safety of principle. Well, we haven't had the deal with that much over the past decade or so because interest rates really past thirty years or so because interest rates had been on the decline. So bonds didn't really lose. But so far this year. They're hitting the skids, pretty hard. Pretty hard. Two six percent, depending on what you own. So as I've mentioned many times before there's an inverse relationship between interest rates and bond prices. So as interest rates, go up the value goes down. Let me give you an obtuse example to make the point. Let's say you went to the Bank. And the Bank was paying five percent interest on a CD. So the bond that you went out and searched for at least earn the same five percent or the person go to the Bank. So let's say you decide to put a grand thousand bucks in a bond that pays five percent. So now, you're getting the same interest from the bond as you're getting in the Bank. Now, what would happen to your bond? If the Bank happened to raise interest rates from five percent to say ten percent. You already bought the bond. So you're sitting there earning five percent. But you know, you can walk across the street and get ten percent. In a CD. So if you wanted to sell the bond. Paid five percent you'd have to reduce your price. Because anybody that would buy that bond from you would obviously prefer to go to the Bank and get ten percent rather than paying you par value for the bond and earn five. So the bond that you originally bought for a thousand dollars that pays you fifty bucks a year in interest. Would have to be reduced in price to five hundred dollars. Because a ten percent interest rate on five hundred bucks produces a fifty dollar per year interest payment. So therefore, you would have to reduce the value of your bond by fifty percent. That's what happens in the bond market. Now interest rate Dongo from five to ten percent. But I think you get the point. Now the Federal Reserve. Held interest rates at near zero for almost eight years. So we have not experienced this kind of dilemma with bonds and bond funds in the recent past and with interest rates rising bonds tend to look more attractive from a yield standpoint. But if they continue to rise, the total return may not be nearly as attractive. We've talked about alternatives. Many many times before. One alternative is to hire a bond manager that can go anywhere. Remember, I said before that high yields we're actually up so far this year not much but nonetheless up long bonds were down substantially. And most financial planners. Not me. Recommend allocating forty percent bonds. I didn't do it. When I was practicing and interest rates are on the decline and bonds were great performers. Because I always knew that at some point interest rates would change and people wouldn't understand why the safety portion of their portfolio was losing money. That is not to say, I wouldn't have some money allocated demands are just wouldn't do almost fifty percent of the portfolio. Especially when I can find alternatives like fixed annuities and fixed indexed annuities that produce returns that are very similar if not better. Especially when the stock market's doing well, but I wouldn't abandon them. But some people think well, wait a minute. Maybe my bond fund manager is asleep at the switch here. So maybe they are. But the problem with some bond fund managers is. What they're hired to do is by let's say government bonds. It's the government bond fund. So they can't switch to high yield. Because that's not doesn't have the same risk profile. So many times even if the manager frankly wants to go to cash or do something else. They don't want to let let the cat out of the bag here. They're in the business of managing money Abban managers in the business of managing money. Just like a stock managers in the business of managing money. And they don't want to not buy government bonds if their strategy is to buy government bonds, even when they perhaps think the buying government bonds not so hot. So rather than by a single purpose bond fund. You can buy a bond fund where you trust that the money manager will try to go to the right place to find the right bonds. I'm not suggesting they'll do better or worse. I'm just suggesting that they have more flexibility. I mentioned other alternatives fixed index the newest he's why are interest rates going up interest rates are going up because there's a fear of inflation not necessarily inflation. But a fear of inflation. And the unemployment rate is going down and wages are going up. And that bodes well for stocks. It does bode well for stocks. So if you have interest in a quote bond like an annuity, and the interest was calculated based on how well the standard and Poor's five hundred or some other stock index did. And there was no possibility of a loss. Why wouldn't you take some of the bond portfolio and put it there? I don't know it makes sense to me. Hi, did it to the tune of millions and millions of dollars for clients back in the day. And they never got angry because they never lost money. Now, they didn't make much either. There are making fourteen percent. When interest rates went down two hundred basis points on their bond fund, but they didn't lose six percent on a long year long bond year to date, and if you looked at the performance over a five six seven years, and in fact, there's academic studies on all this stuff. You'd find that their performance has been very competitive with bonds, and in some instances even competitive with stocks, although I would never ever buy. It has a stock market alternative. But if you want something that's safe, then has an underlying guarantees. You can also slip in one of those guaranteed income benefits. If you prefer that. And they're priced earn three to five percents. Don't let anybody give you any Gulf about eight nine percent. That's bogus information. They're price earned three to five percent. Just like bonds only, they have no downside risk. And bonds today with interest rates going up, certainly do have downside risks. Don't eliminate all the bonds because of interest rates come down. You'll do very well in a bond fund. A rising interest rate environment. Not so much emails next right here in the. He like business content.

Says right loved the show. I'm self employed. It looks like I'll have about fifty K leftover this year. How can I say some taxes? I take eight K per month out as income, pardon me. Well, self-employed probably means you are unincorporated. I might be thinking about a corporation. Probably not for this year.
