"So maybe you've driven to the top of pike's peak in Colorado. And maybe you've even hiked up it by foot. But what about climbing to the summit while pushing a peanut with your nose? Abigail beckman with member station KRC C and Colorado Springs has the story of someone who did just that. As bomb Salem came crawling to the top a handful of tourists took notice, taking video on their phones and clapping. He looked weathered and tired, but he smiled as he stood at the top of the 14,000 foot tall mountain. Thank you. He'd been crawling on his hands and knees for 7 days, flicking a peanut with a bent spoon, duct taped to the mask from a CPAP machine over his nose. A slow going and sisyphean trip. When I did it in the daylight and stuff, I'd have to stop like every ten minutes, 5 minutes and take some pictures, talk to some people and do all that kind of stuff, so it kind of dragged on the trip a little. The 53 year old army vet and stay at home dad wanted to celebrate the 150th birthday of the town at the base of Pikes Peak, and raise money for people experiencing homelessness. Three others have done this before him. I have an old can of survival food and they're cool carbohydrate candies and I was eating those. The plan was for someone to hike the 13 mile trail with Salem and carry his supplies. That fell through, so he did the entire trip alone, aside from a few brave chipmunks checking him out. He said he would hike aways, leave his backpack and then turn around, get his peanut and head back up. I don't feel sore or anything, it's just I know I lost some weight. It was doing the back and forth. I really, they took it out of me. Salem used nearly two dozen peanuts, some fell into cracks between rocks on the trail. The hardest part, he says, was dealing with dehydration. As for what's next, Salem says a shower and a nap. For NPR news, I'm Abigail beckmann at the top of pike's peak

Let me And I do have a level of self awareness to know that I am feeding the industrial complex Grady, pointing it out. Good call. Let's talk crap about the Cowboys. Even before we get to hear them talk about the Super Bowl for two months then when they're two and four after six weeks, they can blame all training camp distractions. The other news in the NFC East is nothing new. Is that Daniel Snyder thing? But I the Daniel Snyder stuff like what This is. This is the same thing that Stan Kronke did in order to maintain control of the Avalanche and the Nuggets. Do you know that he's not the owner on paper? His wife is The same thing with Dan Snyder. I'm sure his wife is lovely, and I'm sure she's Smart. Incapable. Okay. It's like John Elway promoting himself. And then everyone's just supposed to buy into the idea that George Payton gets to make all the decisions, and John Elway won't be involved at all, like that's nonsense. In the NFL is pushing back against the idea that Daniel Snyder could just After a little while resume control. It's the same thing Stan Kronke did is that truly the spirit of the rule? Is it the spirit of what the NFL wanted to do to Daniel Snyder? That he hands the team over to his wife. That the spirit of what the NFL was trying to do here. Is that satisfying at all? Given everything That is going against That franchise. If you're a fan of the team to say nothing of the abuse of power and the disgusting things that were going on under Dan Snyder's watch, like just at strictly from a sports perspective. We've lamented how poorly that organization has been run the fact that Daniel Snyder's giving the keys to his wife does that make you feel any better? Even though she might be infinitely more qualified and smarter and Then Dan is He's still going to be right there. Why? I just didn't buy any of this nonsense. Coming from the Broncos. Oh, George Payton Like John, always right there. So we get to play golf more. Don't think he's evolving The decision, George Payton said one of the position groups that he let John Elway scout was the quarterbacks. It's like that's the exact reason we didn't want you to run the franchise anymore. Like they do this, and they think that we're stupid. Fuck. Oh, Dan Snyder's wife is going to run the team. Oh, Look out for this rocket ship because Dan Snyder is not going to be involved at all in what's going on. It'll probably be a safer organization to working for women, and maybe that's the most important thing. And I'm not being facetious. I'm being serious. It was not a good organization to be a woman in And having a woman at the top. I think I can definitely benefit from that. Wait. The problems with that organization may not be bigger than that. But they are more numerous than that. In Washington fans have wanted Daniel Snyder out for a long time. He said. Positive. Development. Yeah, it's like with the cranky So you're letting You're letting Stand, be more frugal. Bye. Allowing him to have multiple teams. Okay, which inevitably Causes. All teams. To be added disadvantage.

"Both front and rear engined cars. He won the Indianapolis 503 times in three different decades. Bobby was unique. He was a great race driver. He was highly opinionated. He understood the role of a champion with his public. Bobby understood aerodynamics like no other driver in his era. He was a 13 time Pikes Peak Hill climb champion but was afraid of heights. Bobby and I worked together for a quarter century on television and radio. He understood his role in the booth and loved to gig Sam Posey and the ABC booth. Bobby Unser was the pantry arc of his family, who have nine Indy 500 wins between the three answers. Bobby was my great friend. His wife, Lisa asked me to eulogize Bobby at his funeral. It was the first time I spoke of Bobby without him coming right back at me. It was also one of the hardest things to do. I'm speaking now to millions of fans with you today without any problem whatsoever. But that eulogy gave me stage fright. He was a great ambassador for the sport. From his rookie year, where he finished two laps before he crashed to the crown of the three time winner. Bobby was special. He was a great fan of this radio network. If you wanted an autograph, no problem. He loved his fans. Most of all, many of the new drivers should study Bobby's life to see how he drove and how to represent the sport. Bobby has left a huge hole in our hearts. I miss him. We all will miss him. Put the pedal down, Bobby. Thank you, Paul.

"To pass gas. I'm your host known sites trying to always by james pump. Frey hello there. Everyone it is i james and not an pasta and joe weber. What's up wink wink nation. I'm here for you. And i am fired up and as as the boys have been Saying we are talking about ninety supercars today on this episode. We were talking before we started. Recording i think like we're a little bias as far as the nineties. Being the greatest time for supercars that's like saying like the nineties is the best time for cartoons. Yes because that's when joe and i grew up at least win win. Did you grow knowing how old a year you're six years six years old Yeah i mean born in ninety three so like my k- yeah you're the first time when you realize supercars where thing was in the nineties. I sure i heard third eye blind on the radio is what you're saying about three eleven. Her three eleven to okay got it. So like like the diablo's the labor gyn machines. Those are big big parts of your formative years for sure. Yeah now supercars are a lot more prevalent. Yeah i feel like within the last ten years like it's blew up again. But i feel like the nineties really set the president the president the president and showed what was possible and kind of like blew the whole supercar thing out of the water because we had just come out of the malays era and people were like. I want something fast and flashy and purple and green are really cool right now so. Let's just make cars like debt for sure. And i think you know from the sixties to the eighties like cars. That would be considered supercars today. I mean there are just called sports cars you know. Yeah 'cause they were. They were really fast. Yeah not the ninety s great supercars because it literally defined that genre. That's when he started seeing like dance materials carbon fiber the. That's it that's it really for me only carbon-fiber that's the only qualifier. I think we should just get right into it. Yeah let's go. let's go so so. How did we get to the nineties. Being the definitive era of supercars the term supercar itself isn't really official it. Roughly describes a high performance. Luxury or exotic. Sports car generally a two seater with at least an eight cylinder engine. Although that'll probably change here the trend towards these vehicles started as far back as the sixties when detroit started shoehorning big block. v8's into sedans and turning the results loose on the american public and of course we know those as muscle cars across the atlantic european manufacturers were also busy refining. their lightweight. sports cars what. These smaller cars lacked in displacement and seating they made up for easily in handling and driveability as a sixties turned into the seventies. Those massive motors became liabilities with the looming gas crisis and clean air act of nineteen seventy then the second oil crisis in nineteen seventy nine. The industry yet again. An american cars continued to get smaller and more efficient manufacturers in the. Us knew they had to do something. So they're carburetors. Were replaced by fuel injection and distributors being swapped for coil packs. But we weren't there yet after all the one thousand nine hundred. Five corvette made her on the same horse. Power as a well-equipped twenty twenty. Camry the so-called malays era when autos reached a low point of reliability and performance was in full swing. New emissions equipment was starving the motors of their power. And even in the instances where these new cars had style. The eighty-five corvette being a prime example was under. The hood didn't match up that being said the eighties were still an impressive decade for supercars. Just not in the united states. American consumers still reeling from the death of the muscle car scene started looking abroad for inspiring performance. Every decade is a reaction to the one that came before in the eighties shoved back. The seventies with an absolute explosion of high performance supercars a handful of imported performance. Cars like the lamborghini coon tash for testarossa and the lotus esprit were blowing enthusiasts minds and with the stock market. Looking like pikes peak. There were selling faster than cocaine in wall. Street bathrooms by the nineties. A lot of that pesky emissions tech that was thrust on manufacturers was starting to get smarter as we're onboard computers and fuel injectors the progressing technology let engines breathe better and pass their gases in ways. That didn't starve the performance. Nice if you if you like stories like this check out. Our podcast passed gas. Celebrities enrich folks. Were having a hard time justifying spending big bucks on stiff bucket seats and jarring track suspension setups and manufacturers took the hint burr example lamborghini spent the late eighties upgrading. The coon tauch into the diablo. The coon tosh is often derided for having a borderline unusable only tight interior that overheats quickly so they lengthened diablo to improve the comfort ability in the cabin. The word is this comfort. Yeah right after ability never heard of that. Is that a diablo right there. This is a blow right here and it's purple too. Yeah that's the blister. That i had

First Lady Joe Biden hinted, becoming the latest in a long line of presidential pets. Major will be the first rescue dog toe live in the White House, and I misspoke earlier. I said forward.

Hi, Sherry. Yeah, hi. Good morning, guys couldn't talk to you. Yeah. Jill Biden has said that she was a cat and will join possibly champion Major and Joe Biden has said that he wants to walk those dogs like he has in Delaware every morning, says he gets a lot of pleasure about that. And it's funny because somebody else who's that pleasure from their dogs was George Washington. He was known to keep Fox hounds all the way back. You know, when he was president, he had Fox sounds that had the best names. I love that one was called Drunkard. One was named Sweet lips. Not another one was named tipsy and one was named tippler. And he said, to have gotten a lot of peace going out there to his candles, making sure the dogs were okay. And he kind of started the tradition of White House pets. Throughout all the years, There's only been two presidents who have not had pets in the White House. One of them just left Donald Trump and James K. Polk. Do not have animals as well. Some of these stories are amazing. From the Presidential Pat Museum in Washington, D. C. Thomas Jefferson had a Mockingbird named Dick and he also had to bear Cubs. You were brought to him from Zebulon Pike, who Pikes Peak was named after gave them that there's Thomas Jefferson thought they were too ferocious in his words to keep at the White House, so he actually kept him in a cage on the White House lawn for two months. And for two months, people walked by the White House and looked at these two bears eventually gave them to a friend in Philadelphia, who had a museum. One of them escaped and ransacked the museum and then was shot and killed. So they stuffed it and kept it the museum, But we're not gonna go there because that's a little negative. Quincy Adams, John Quincy Adams, head and alligator Given to him by the Marquis de Lafayette. He would keep it in the bathtub. In the White House, and when people would come in, he would show Would you like to see the presidential bathroom? And there would be an alligator in there and his wife was known for keeping silkworms. There's so many great stories about these pets Everybody has heard about. No Teddy Roosevelt and menagerie of pets that he had their Calvin Coolidge had even more pets than him. He had colleagues a bulldog at one point, a donkey, a bobcat and raccoons. That were known to escape from their cages and tear up the furniture in the White House, unscrewing the light bulbs. They would ransack the house plants. They finally had to give them away to a zoo. Because it was like, no, we can't take on crazy now.

If you could at magically add to Shawn wants into the Broncos or Bradley Beal to the Denver Nuggets. Which would you do? Oh, boy. How does a really good question I'm gonna go Bill. Yeah, Brad feel you know, he was a big time recruit us ST Louis. I covered him block when he was I'm not kidding. He was like 14. Yes, facial hair. So I'm going Brad deal because I think instantly, the Nuggets can win the NBA title. And if you had to show what's in the Broncos get real interesting. There's still not better than the chief, so I'll go deal because he makes them a title contender immediately. That's like a really good question, right? And I I would agree with you. But then again, I'm you know, people text ino your Chiefs fans. So you don't want the Broncos to be good. I actually do because it makes my job a lot better. I hate talking about mediocre football teams, but that's ah, discussion for another day. Last heart take. I'm going to give you Not only is Gonzaga the best team in college for college basketball there the on Lee Good team in college basketball your thoughts. Uh, I was Baylor put it. Put the hammer down and kill you last night. Such I can't say they're the only one. I do think that They're the best team. You know what Bay I'm said there tonight. Our guys in behind, he says, is the best cause that's what came since And, uh, wouldn't you feel like things? You said the gap between everybody else and Gonzaga is like Wouldn U C L A teams Have that floored me? Because this is a guy that I've gone through it as you might probably guess. You know, be with park those two years. The second one that didn't win. It is the best team I've ever seen. They actually didn't win. And you got 96, Kentucky. You got? Oh, four's that Florida. Nine. You still a those? That's what we're watching here with Gonzaga, so All right. Hey, I'm kind of floored me with that one. But I don't. I don't know these far off. I still take you and I'll be in Kentucky had the head but there's a big gap between the attack and the rest of them right now. I love that UNLV team and I love your zags this year. I really do.

Right on right and thank you for bringing up that downtown Denver stuff or media need toe. Really look in the community and see what people are worried about what they're talking about. So I appreciate you bringing that up. Thank you. Yeah. I appreciate your writing about it, Paul. I really do publicly that does that. Joining us here on drive time. Sports. Yeah, I know it's it's a hyper Local Denver thing, But Denver Whether we like it or not. Is kind of the engine of this state. For obvious reasons. And we're all better off. If Denver is it? That's why If Denver is a better place to live in Colorado Springs is an even better place to live. The rising tide that raises all ships right and We're not going down there and I think that's why it was so important that Paul wrote about it. Because people like we're not going up to Denver. When's the last time you went to Denver? Unless you have business there unless you have a doctor there. You need to see on the regular. You're not going to Denver. So we're not seeing this. We're not allowed to go toe the Broncos games or anymore or Nuggets games Avalanche games. We don't know what's going on and pull does because he goes down there first work. And I think he's pointing out really important things. And I just think that even though it's a Denver story, there is a trickle down effect, even though we like to look at ourselves is We stand alone and where our own and like I get it, And I believe that Denver's the capital. Members. The hub Denver's the again the engine that makes this state go And it's not a good spot in Paul's not the first person to bring it up. So I wanted to have him on to discuss that again.

"1300 Air Force basketball fell To conference rivals Utah State by a final score of 83 to 48, Utah State outscored Air force by nearly 20 in the first half. And really never looked back. The Baggies had five scores in double figures today for Air Force. They just had one that was Nick Jackson. That ended up with a team high 11 points. Air Force just really Had trouble today defending Utah state and they didn't shoot the ball particularly well. They shot it 50% in the first half, and when Utah State really pulled away, they shot only 37 a half percent. From the field. Right? Like is the case with college basketball in the mountain West this year, Air Force will get another shot at the AG ease and just two days time they'll play Saturday at four.

At the very least, watching the fireworks on Pikes Peak tonight. And spending time with The people. That is a good idea to spend time with. Are you? Can spend time with 5 to 29872 got a full hour, the style of today's show. Is looking back at 2020. I am not. Ah, you know, I'd like to say that I'm different than other talk show hosts. I can't. We can't help ourselves. End of the year. This is what you do You talk about the sports the previous year, and I am no different than anybody else You've heard on this station over the last few days. But the one thing that I bring to the table that others on this station don't is. I have a local lean too much of what I do. And in that vein What's driving the show today will be what's driving the year. In Colorado sports. These are the three stories That I believe are the most significant in Colorado sports in the year 2020 disagreement with me If you wish. In fact, I encourage it. But let me give you The three stories that are driving the year. Aziz, You're driving home. Here are the three stories that are driving drive time sports. These are in no particular order. They're just the top three sports stories this year, In my opinion, laid out for dramatic effect here is story number one. Hurry to Yokich. Murray trying to get it shot clock winding down, Murray puts up a thready bang Jamal Murray from town. ESPN on the call. To me. One of the top three stories of the year must be Michael Malone's comeback Kids the Denver Nuggets in the NBA bubble in Orlando down 31 in a serious not once but twice. Find ways to rally from three went down to beat the jazz and rally from 31 down to be the L. A clippers before ultimately falling. To the L. A Lakers. And in so doing What they did. In these playoffs. I think that the Nuggets got to another level in the NBA, not just because they made it around further. Then they did the year before. But there's a line of demarcation here that once you play for conference title once A trip to the MBA finals. Is only four wins away from you. You are now considered among the elite teams. In the MBA. And the Nuggets are absolutely that now. And mainly, the way they were able to rally from through one down twice is bubble. Jamal Marie. We have yet to fully see this year. Maybe if he plays tomorrow against Phoenix. It will be in a new year, so won't count. But the Jamal Marie have gone at the very tail end of 2020. Not like the one we saw. In September, but we saw along with the Nuggets individually, Jamal Murray. Rise. To another level. To become a true star. In the MBA. We saw more of Michael Porter Jr than we ever have before seeing the potential that he has even getting a little glimpse of Bull Bull. This Denver Nuggets season. That occurred in the year 2020 to me. Has to be one of the biggest stories. The team that Throughout its history has been looked down upon not nearly not even closely considered one of the best teams in the MBA rising to this level and also Rising to this level with the expectation that they will be back regularly. There is an expectation level now and maybe that's part of the reason why the Nuggets, they're struggling out. The gate is they're struggling with the weight of expectation, but the expectation is that Nuggets are going to be here. They're going to be challenging. To go toe in MBA finals. For the next couple of years. And that's a lot of pressure because Windows Championship Windows windows to compete always close. Quicker than you think they will. But the window it for contention is open. For the Denver Nuggets, and it was in it was last season, but certainly in the bubble where we saw the Denver Nuggets. For the organization that doesn't skip steps They took the very next step. Which was playing for a chance to go the MBA finals. And in 2021. We'll see if they realize the potential that we saw in them. In the 2020 season. I hear is Story number two. Second down and six for women away inside. That's an interception by message. The defense of end comes up with the pick their 8th 4th quarter turnover this season and NFL high for the Broncos lock is thrown. Three interceptions and the defense of Lyman Nassib comes up with the play. Kevin Harlan, CBS on the call. Think about how we felt about Drew lock. After 2019 This time last year, Drew Locke went for in one he had the game he had against Houston. And much of the conversation around drew lock. Was have the Broncos found. Their franchise quarterback. And a year later, we're having the same conversation, but it has a different tone to it. Last year, it was Lot of intrigue. Quite a bit of hope. This year. It's an open question. It truly is a question. Have they Through locks on core. His first full season as a starting quarterback in the NFL is absolutely one of the biggest. I mean, this this show Almost every day. Discusses something drew off related If we had one of those, what is that word webs. That they do for social media that words that you or the words that come up on Google searches the most they make really big, and you kind of see what people are searching for what they say on Social media..

Pike's Peak: The Complete History of the World's Highest Hill Climb

"Pike's peak is a giant among giants. It's the highest mountain in the front range of the rocky mountains. It is formed from billion-euro old granite. That's right. Billion with a B. and was first named by the native people who lived in shadow the called the mountain. Taba meaning son and they were the Tableau Watch meaning people of San Mountain. In eighteen o six, the mountain was quote unquote discovered. By American explorer lieutenant, Zevulon Yuan Pipe. These God I sounds like an alien spaceship guy. On. Doesn't look as cool as his name suggests I'm just GonNa tell you right now he was sent by Thomas Jefferson on a mission to explore the West and upon seeing the Mountain Zevulun apparently swore the mountain would never be conquered by man cars didn't exist yet, but it's safe to assume pike would have included them in his assessment as well. Given the chance it only took fourteen years. To prove old Zebulon Pike. Wrong. The mountain was first scaled by a European in eighteen twenty when Edwin James, a botanist and explorer successfully reached the summit collecting flowers all the way up quote the most notable day of the expedition for botanical collecting. Now, I don't WanNa give all the credit to Edwin. James although it sounds like he had a great time, I'm sure that one of the Taboada probably. Did it before him yeah. One hundred percent. Yeah attaboy watch like a a wildfire up their boot who was just like I'm GonNa Climb that today flowers. We're lovely but it was a Shinier commodity that attracted the first wave of settlers to pikes. Peak Pike's peak or bust was a common slogan of the Colorado Gold Rush of the eighteen fifties although is more of a marketing slogan. Do the prominence of the mountain gold wasn't discovered near pikes peak until later in eighteen ninety three, it won't be the first time that the mountain inspired the imaginations of those who climbed it in that same year after reaching a summit of the mountain and taking in the view Katharine Lee Bates wrote the Song America the beautiful. Describing Purple Mountain Majesties above the enameled plane over the years the mountain was commonly referred to as Pike's highest peak before finally being simplified just to pikes peak the next notable American to shape the fate of the mountain was Spencer Penrose, and he also might have been the one to introduce cars. Penrose had a name that sound like the bad guy in a murder mystery but he also had a job that would fit right into the genre. He was a mining speculator of the American West just like a murder mystery penrose had a history that could make you think you is both a suspect and a savior he graduated from Harvard but at the bottom of his class. His father and brothers were doctors and lawyers he decided to travel out west and try to make a name for himself at first he failed before getting a tip about some land near Cripple Creek that made him millions of dollars, and that's million dollars like in the movie this guy is played by Walton Geoghegan's. For sure. That's love that whilst. Yeah. And that's millions of dollars in eighteen hundreds money, which is like a lot today billions today. I Love Walton Gardens he's so. I feel like if I went to Harvard I'd WanNa, graduate the bottom of my class. Look I'm I'm the best on the rowing team but. Not great at socio economics I mean I went to. Harvard. So I'm pretty good at stuff but like I partied penrose settled. Colorado. Springs. The closest town to pikes peak was met a woman named Julie Villiers McMillan although. Penrose was by then in his forty s, he had sworn to stay a rich entrepreneurial bachelor but Macmillan proved to be grimes to his Elon Musk and the two got hitched in traveled to Europe for a lavish honeymoon staying at beautiful resorts around Europe inspired penrose to murder his wife what now? In fact, the inspiration was to open his own motel modeled after the places he had stayed specifically on the Mediterranean coast. This became the Broadmoor hotel opened in nineteen eighteen at the cost of three million, nineteen eighteen dollars translating to scrooge mcduck. Gold Coin Swing Pool amount of money in today's money. The Broadmoor was and is a seven hundred, seventy nine room Italian renaissance style palace with eighteen restaurants a golf club with three courses including one designed by Arnold. Palmer himself an automotive museum, the contents of which will soon arrive at this thing is like massive. It looks awesome. Yeah. I WanNa go to the odd more. Yeah. Let's do it. How do you feel? Seven hundred rooms every night. That's nuts penrose was no fool. He knew he knew that to attract people to the hotel you needed to do things great reviews on tripadvisor, dot com and promotional stunts. He set out to work on an ambitious project as he built the hotel, it was a two hundred, eighty, three, thousand, dollar gravel and dirt road to the fourteen thousand, one, hundred, fifteen foot summit of pikes peak with the idea of promoting tourism to the area and indirectly his own hotel.

"Americans remain a morally serious people at least in our quickness to condemn each other's Hitler's for various misdeeds we are clearly not as concerned with moral consistency. For example, we demand that churches close to stop the spread of Covid Not Walmart's bars or casinos. We protest police violence with acts of violence we celebrate. Hugh. Hefner. Has Some great liberator of women and just weeks after his death condemned Harvey Weinstein we say character counts but only when it's in office not hours and then last week after three plus years of the Hashtag to. Movement has protested the objectification and abuse of women the most objectify Song in history one that reduces women's nothing more than their private parts hit number one on the charts now couldn't possibly share the lyrics of this song any of them and please don't look them up essentially to women rapper. She performed the song repeatedly call themselves prostitutes though not using that word and bag men to treat them as such by any definition legal or otherwise America's most popular song right now and the video that accompanies it can only be called pornography and it's Available everywhere to anyone of any age. Also last week Netflix announced a new film to be carried on its platform called cuties. It's a French film about an eleven year old Muslim girl who liberates herself from the oppressive morality of her family into religion by joining an all girl dance crew, the image Netflix's used to advertise the film on social media featured a group of preteen girls and sexually suggestive poses. The trailer featured this dance crew of young girls working among other sexually suggestive dance moves back in nineteen sixty, four Supreme Court justice. Potter Stewart's famously said that though he could not give a precise definition of pornography quote I know when I see it well, thankfully, the public outcry to the movie poster was loud enough, consistent, enough, and incredulous enough that what the public saw was clearly child pornography response Netflix's apologized and pulled the ad. But so far I've decided not to pull the movie itself as one facebook mean put it. If conspiracy theorists needed AMMO that government and media elites are behind some international pedophile ring net flicks just gave it to them as morally monstrous is. Both of these cultural artifacts are they do reveal a great deal about the society that could produce them one that considers self determination self actualization and absolute freedom from any restraint as among the highest human goods such a view emerges only when you reject the idea that the universe is created an ordered for some predetermined purposes intern such a society embraces a profoundly tragic misunderstanding, not only about what's right and wrong but of what it means to be humid of what freedom truly is often teach this important truth using an analogy with my. Students imagine that I'm an airplane pilot and feeling quite free one day I decided I don't WanNa, fly my plan I want to drive my plane. So I go to the end of the runway and I turn left who's GonNa stop me I'm a seven forty seven I'm cruising down the road and then I decide I want to see pike's peak. So I start up the curvy winding mountain drive and, of course, get stuck he see my expression of freedom actually could limit my freedom if I want to see pike's peak in a plane I shouldn't drive it there. I, should fly it because a plane is most free not when I drive it but when I fly why? Because that's what it was designed for the same is true of human sexuality. We're not most free when we do whatever we want, we're free when we are who God created us to be a view of freedom that denies accountability or consequences will only always enslave us to our own passions. This is what Paul wrote in Romans six. Do you not know that if you yield yourself to anyone as Obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey either of Sen which leads to death or of Obedience, which leads to righteousness. See the very beginning the sexual revolution promised the wrong kind of freedom what it delivered instead by reimagining not only morality but we fundamentally ours human beings was only slavery in fact women and children are disproportionately the victims of these bad ideas are to most recent cultural artifacts just retail those same lies and it's no accident that one is aimed at women and the other children

"Okay on this episode of the show a very cool guest. I haven't talked to the student awhile came up kind of last minute, but he's a really interesting guy Michael. Bream is the founder and. CEO, of Ev West. A company that builds and Converts Electric Cars down. In San, Diego area they have done some really cool streetcars. They've done some really cool race cars. They've raised pikes peak and pretty soon, they are going to Bonneville with their newest project. So here to talk about it on the zoom the CEO of e West Michael Bream. On small tar podcast. I've already done it. I've done it in the in the on awkwardness my own home. How are Ya antastic? You'd see. Yeah. What's I mean you know Since we last talked there's been quite a lot of development in the world of Evil Hot Rod. You can buy E v Crate Motors. Now I mean you know what a world right? I mean, it comes in a crate or why don't you tell me if you bought one of these things I mean GM brought that that electric crate And I took some kind of interest in it didn't you? Yeah, we did. We actually have easy west parts in there and cooled I. Think you know the reality is, is they try to make off in sound simple and Bolton but it's it's quite difficult and a lot of these guys are kind of in the space to get attention Yamaha motors recently of did something like that they're putting out a crate motor and we called Yamaha and they're like, no, it's not. It's really. Out there. Actually openly admitted like. Fishing there we just threatened the pond. This is such bullshit because you know often I, hear from people who want me to comment on the fact that. The new cafe standards are impossible to it's like, do you know how easy it is to say that we're going to go full ev by twenty thirty and then roll that Shit back in twenty twenty five when no one even remembers and your long. In Our news. Cycle. Say Anything and the news cycle is so short that by the time you walk it back later once it's clearly impossible just nobody gives a shit. The Craig's is GonNa Have Bluetooth work on blockchain. Put bitcoin right that yeah, it's it's interesting Matt I was just thinking about that the other day like if somebody could do like a best hits real and just go back through like GM announcements and I mean I feel like we've been told like three or four times from every automaker, they're having an electric truck or this out of the other thing and here it is twenty, twenty and Where are they right? Well, A-. Onto, something right isn't it we're really is a reinvite we're gonNA see Arena I mean that's a good point. You cannot buy not buy it and they don't have a fan I love Ribian. Let me tell you I love her the and I think got the best shot of anyone but they don't even have a factory built yet. Do you think they have a better shot of building a truck than than Tesla does? Want to die. Early And then into politics. Ev Crate Motors but it's important. To note the building an electric truck or a heavy duty vehicles, extremely difficult and extremely expensive, and so This isn't a model three or a key Niro or whatever they're trying market. They're trying to bring up a full size truck and compete with you know the Ford F, one, fifty, soul Arado, etc. that is You know no small task of the and again we're talking about essentially start up companies to this date haven't produced anything and I think Riviera's far far far ahead of everyone but you look at companies like Nikola and some of the other companies that are essentially trying to get her capital off of computer enters
