"I hope you're having fun If you're outside, Uh, one of my bookshelves at home is filled. Totally filled with the works of Richard Lindberg, who I consider one of the great historians in the history of this wild, wacky City. I've known Richard for a long time. I have read him and liked him even longer. And it's my pleasure to welcome him to the air. Richard, It's nice of you to give up. Uh, I find this fourth of July. Pretty strange. I don't know about you, but it has a weird vibe to me. It's got a weird vice doesn't feel it just doesn't feel like the old days. One of the things I think, Yeah. Yeah, I've had Richard on the show many times to talk about his, uh His series of, uh of I think brilliant historical narratives about everything from mobsters to the White Sox. To his own, uh, somewhat tortured family history. I read with some alarm. I suppose it was this week. Richard that you may be Retiring from the business of book writing. Did I read that correctly, or were you? Were you drinking or something? Wrote that well, Rick, in which I guess I call myself semi retired just ended my final my employment. What the city of Chicago and, uh, seven years with the city concludes, and, uh You never know it as you reach a certain point in life in a certain age, when, when jobs are no longer plentiful and I'm still full of energy and still full of spirit, and I will never give up writing. It's my life to find who I am. And, uh, I plan to write more books. I actually would like to take a hand. Take a shot of fiction, something I've never done before. But that's like climbing Mount Everest for a nonfiction writer. Do you feel the have you quit your last travel you've done? You know, I have to go in Tuesday, Do you? No, That's the strange thing that going in Tuesday. Um uh, I had worked four years and in City Hall is Alderman Ed Burke Speechwriter. Yeah, of course, that all changed. And, uh, I ended up getting transferred to utility building customer service that handles the water billing for Chicago and I had a transitory job. They're moving a program over from City Hall into that department and and pretty much. It was a temporary thing. I knew I knew what was going to end. And, uh, I got extended twice in the position was formally eliminated. And, uh And then I stood on the corner stood outside and I thought to myself what what's next while remembering Tom Hanks in that movie where he had rescued from the Desert Island break right in the movies? Standing at four crossroads, and he's not sure of where he's going and what direction and in some ways, though, in some ways, Richard that that can be I don't know whether it's sunk in. That can be kind of liberating, Can it not? Well? Yeah, I guess in one sense it can. But, Rick I've had a job for 52 years now, every, uh Every book I've written has been written around full time job, and you know you get in there Treadmill and you complain about it Anything? Oh, my. You know if I were retired, and then all of a sudden that long journey down the river ends, And then suddenly you're unsure again and you're thinking, Gee, you know, I'm going to miss this. What? You're thinking to yourself, you become so a tool. Yeah. Certain time and Uh, especially now. I mean, it's I'm probably take a little more harder than a lot of people would have just joyfully look forward to retirement because I've always had a frantic schedule and not having a frantic schedule. You know, it's kind of disconcerting. Well, you and I, uh there's a ton of similarities. And what all of you sometime later tonight or Tomorrow when you're off Monday to go to Richard's website, too. He was a brilliant thing about what some of his influences or a new and I share. So many of these influences down to the great the Great John O'Hara was one of the most one of the most overlooked and diminished. Writers. I think appointment in Samara is one of the greatest novels I've ever read. Yeah, Pottstown, Pennsylvania came from and he's completely forgotten today, but in his time he was his books were turned into motion Pictures. 10 North Frederick Butterfield eight. But critics have not been kind. They looked upon him kind of much kind of like a, uh, Jack when Susan and Howard Robbins kind of writer, but he was prolific and he had a great deal of heart to what he did I agree. And one of the problems with with Oh, hero is that he was a really, really, really nasty Drunk who seemed to have a insecurity complex. I think there's a story, Richard. I think it was it. Hemingway and talking to Faulkner, Hemingway and Fitzgerald are talking. Doing. So, What do you think we should should be by John for his for his birthday, and I think it was having way you suggested. Let's let's get him a diploma from Princeton, because that's what he wants. More than anything. I'm going to spend this whole hour talking, and we're going to mention all of his books with Richard Lindberg, who you can find it. Richard Lindberg dot net. He is free and clear now, and I'm very curious. We're going to go back into because he I think he decided to become a writer at the Roosevelt Theater when he sat there and watched Jason robots pretend to be Al Capone and the same Valentine's Day Massacre, And that was my Al Capone Inspiration, 1967. Uh, well, better than rose better than most. We'll be back in a couple of minutes with Richard will be here for the whole hour. And I appreciate it, Richard very much. Thank you. W G..

"That's simple hope. So hopefully this will do that It's a big goal but you know it goes are good. Hey Hey the universe is going to negotiate your death so start. Hi It's like when you go into a job interview you don't ask for the amount of money actually. WanNa make last for like thirty thousand dollars more so then when the person just like screws you you end up with kind of maybe close to what you want or you know. Seventy eight percent of it if you're a woman. I'm not doing great listeners. Improved things right. Yes we're listening MULAS and And New supporters. That's the other camp of people that we think at the top of the podcast supporters. This week we have so much every single time I got that little email that says you have a new supporting member. It just warms my heart. It's just the coolest thing because what it means is that you think that what we do in this world is valuable enough that you want to support it on a monthly basis with cold hard cash. And that's that's huge. That's a big deal. It is huge because cold hard cash is how we pay for our housing and our food in this particular time. The misfit stars income online community. The supporting members are going to be sort of the main way in which we're going to weather this particular weird time that we're all living in so when we get any support or it literally is like yes closer to making the goal that we need to to survive this. So you're listening to this new and you're out of context. What are they talking about? Here's the deal. There's deck to the pandemic flu pandemic. That's been happening. Stop big deal right now because the pandemic Shannon and I for the first time since we've met each other will not be out on tour in the summertime so weird I have been on tour for at least four months a year since two thousand and four. Shanna has been on tour for at least four months a year since two thousand and two twenty twenty is the year that ends because we can't go on tour essentially like illegal right now well and it's more probably more importantly it is not a practice that would encourage Behavior that serves the common good. And this time though. Can I gather inserts whether we're venue or someone's house so bad so bad and what we do is gatherings right? Yeah and so. The gatherings have been taken off the table. Magical these gatherings. We typically show up in a variety of people's homes sixty seventy people's homes across the country over the course of like three and a half month period and we show up in their backyards in their living rooms to play intimate concerts house concerts for their communities of friends and family. And it's the most magical thing in the world. It's come to feel like an extended family reunion every summer. Now because we just drive across the country I mean we have dear dear friends like who we love dearly and whom we toll loved dearly. You know In pottstown Pennsylvania in Virginia in Illinois in Kansas. I mean far-flung random places a whole new den of people in North Carolina who are just dear to our hearts you know what I mean. We have this magical life that we've managed to sort of curator on what we do And we can't do it this summer. Which is very sad because we love all of you so much and we want to see you and hug you and we can't see you and hug you right now and be more. Practical way is very sad because it seventy five percent of our annual income. Yeah it's a big deal and so long story short We are working to replace this. Last income We have some plans afoot for a summer online house concert tour which I think is going to be really cool and we'll be telling people a bit more about that in a couple of weeks and we're going to allow. Yeah that's so exciting. How great it's GonNa be really cool. And the second thing is that we are going to be working to instead of doing our regular album fundraiser. This spring do sustainability fundraiser. And so what? That looks like for us. Yeah seriously we're we're working to generate sort of sustainable baseline level of income. I mean this is not like filet Mignon every night rate. But like this'll be every night you know you gotTa compromise in tough times. I just think that's the responsible thing to do seriously. We're honestly reading a lot of pasta around the house right now. But it's okay. We like Pasta Rice. Yes we have a roof over our heads and we have starch. Two things survive. So what we're asking everyone to do is to become supporting members of the misfit stars community And that's us that's me and Shannon so if you like who we are in the world if you value our contribution to your life. Now's the time to get involved and become a supporting member. It's really easy. You go to misfits dot com slash. Join and you just pick a level of monthly recurring contribution that you feel comfortable making and really what we're asking everyone to do is find an amount that you wouldn't miss if it were disappeared from your bank account every month and just do that amount for some people that will be five bucks for some people that'll be fifty twenty bucks like there's all different levels for different you know different like people situation's a bunch of new levels in fact one of the new levels we have which is already pretty popular. We call it a buck a day and it's literally a dollar a day to to support this. Podcast is brought me. Jamie in this effort to whether this time and I want to mention also that we're going to be doing a major push for this fundraiser. Starting in the beginning of May and when that happens we're going to be ceasing. The thank you gift that we don't really give to people who support at some at certain levels and so if you were thinking about becoming a supporter and you WANNA misfit stars t-shirt. Now's the time because we just figured that it would. It would not be just fiscally responsible in this time of urgent need to be. You know giving using people's contributions that they're making to us and turning around and like may continue t-shirt wizard they're costly because I made one a one on one basis and one by one basis anyway. So did he want to teach. They're really cute. You can still do that until the beginning of May when. We launched our massive roll out of this fundraiser. So good misfit stars dot com slash.

Please do this all hands kind of thing and the people who are supporting US already. Are you guys our our biggest supporter? So if you've got more room to increase your level of support we'd be grateful for it and it would help so thank you and I think that we should close out this advertisement section of our podcast by saying thank you so much for those of you who are already supporting.

Probably me probably Shannon honestly. So how are we feeling this week? You know what good I'm feeling good and the reason I'm feeling good is because you and I have started getting really intentional about the tools that we need to use every day to get to a place of feeling good yeah. I've been really realizing that I've BEEN WAKING UP PRETTY ANXIOUS. A lot of mornings yeah And like I'll feel pretty good right when I first wake up like a rollover I'll see you and that's just as best as always every morning people rollover and I realize I'm lying next to Shannon. I'm like Oh my gosh awesome. Love her so stoked. It's really great but again for sure. Yeah ten out of ten with Mary again But you know very shortly after that what happens. Because I'm an idiot I pick up my phone right And it's just what you WANNA do like even if you've got your phone and you know what do I what am I going to do. Like just lie there or get up before you. There's other options but they're weird and I haven't gotten my head around and so what I do is grab my phone and of course all the bad news of the past nine hours. Is there on the front of the phone? A little you know. And even if I don't click on it it's just they're kicking around the back of my head and then you know by the time. I'm done breakfast. I have managed to at least see headlines. You know and and none of them are great right now right you know. There's not a lot of good things happening and it's hard. It's really hard like I'm not always in the morning times during the best sort of managing my flow of in from information. And even in times when I do when I just go off on a tangent and just look at something music related or something more fun I still fuel a bubbling anxiety in my chest. Yeah just the potential weight of what is out there. I don't know about yeah. I know what you mean by that absolutely and you know. So what what you and I have been doing Is We have really been spending a lot of time outdoors first thing in the day. Yeah honestly we've really been doing is declaring war dandelions screw you guys screw the. It's our Goddamn Long. We have a Dandy Lion problem We inherited Dandelion. Probably when we moved into this place and then we didn't really know what the heck we were doing in terms of managing at the first year we were here and they got more out of control and then we attempted as a fixed last year and it didn't really work and the result is that we've got massive patches of our law and that is just like dandelions and it's unacceptable okay and so we've taken matters into our own hands. We are. Yeah we're like one by one popping these suckers out of the ground personal it is personal really is and it's Super Cathartic and it's meditative and it's in the fresh air and thank goodness. We've had beautiful sunny days here. Spring is here this week and so we've been able to do the outdoor work and it just the fresh air the not listening to anything The not reading anything. We hardly talk to each other when we're out there in a companionable way exactly exactly but like it's all just really good a it's it's been a good way to set the day and we get back inside the house and I can't speak for you but I know that like I I go out to your feeling a little anxious. Not quite sure how things are going to be and I come back inside and I feel good. I feel good right now. I do too you know last week. We talked about Sorting things into categories of. You know things we have the power to change and things we don't this is definitely a thing in in my power to changes to pop the suckered into line and link fixing the larger problems in the world. But I do feel like I'm doing something to me and the thing that I can control in that circumstance is. I can change how I feel. I have found anything that I can do to change my mood from a not good mood into a good mood. And that's a big deal is a big deal like I was looking for that for like you know the first thirty years of my life but I thought it was like alcohol and drugs. Yeah it turns out that like you know going outdoors and pop dandelions right now. Is that thing for me? It's a good thing. I guess that we have such a problem. Because it's going to take us weeks we're done. We're going to have the nicest looking. I mean it's not gonNA be fancy. Is You know fancy yard people but like our yard is going to be super orderly by the time this summer has done. We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA. Yeah. I mean that's a silver lining.

It means you have more energy and fee for. You might have a dozen eggs in the fridge. Which means you're sims a fed? You might drive fast. So you'll need speed game is better. You may interact with a whole Gotcha people so you have more power in. PG So this blurring of the lines between the real and the virtual kind of moving getting from a discrete experienced went industry experience. So are there applications locations for businesses to actually game by the workplace people showing up for the nine thirty meeting on time. I think that's happening already. We see that in schooling to where we use game fixations a lot of schooling education is becoming more compelling for a new generation so inevitably it happens in our workplace. That's for sure. Do you think that people can burn out on it or do you think that that is something that will stay the idea that people want that kind of competitive metabolism where they gamified experience social interaction and competition competition at two of the most powerful motives of human behavior that positive so guilt obligation addiction causes as human beings. Do all kinds of things until such point in time is actually actually. This is just really bad and we kick the habit cold Turkey and then we tell all of our friends not to do it as well but social direction and competition the two things that we don't we don't get tired of it kind of drives us throughout our lives and so really the very core of gaming these to call positive motivators of human behavior and provided you do it right and you build over time and and you get the rewards and benefits of those two things that it's not something you boone out on. It's actually something that enriches and extends it enhances your life. What's an example of something that you've experimented with yourself that that you've been surprised? It's been a very sort of exciting satisfying gaming experience candy crush. Who would've thought like doing this and doing this? I mean here. We are five five you six years later and we're still doing it. Yeah Yeah it's a good segue to the next question. which is that? I think of gaming as a business where every now and again there are true phenomenon that just crossed the culture. And what is it like. And you've had some of them. What's that like to have a game? That isn't just a business success but just sort of vaults into the cultural conversation station I think every day you up to build entertainment. You hope is that you're going to detain you. Know tens or hundreds of millions of people I mean as as the providers and creative at a time and I think that's all of our objective when we get up in the morning every now and then it actually happens and all kinds of good things come from that no kinds of challenges come from that. We had a game earlier this year. Old Apex Legends. We brought fifty million people into that game in a month. And that's that's a wonderful thing. I mean that's mind blowing and we we're running around the office cheering. How compelling this game and then all of a sudden you discover there are all kinds of negative manifestations of of that kind of broad appeal cheetahs in in the spice and you get people trying to counterfeit currency in spice and you get bullies in the spice? And then all of these kind of negative manifestations of human behavior that we see in the real world quite frankly also manifest that skyline a will that has this many eight people interacting with it and so there's a whole nother victor of work that we have to do to keep that that experience fun and safe and enjoyable for the people who play. How do you see around corners to predict predict and anticipate? What kinds of Shenanigans might happen at a game or been doing it alone time here? We spent a lot of time thinking about if we were bad bad people. What would we try? And do we go out and hire some bad people to see an awesome. What would they do that works? And then the other thing is is we've written a whole program. Set that that really looks at by human behavior over.

I'm concerned I thought like wasn't anything like that should not be in anybody's hands except the military police department yeah but it but not the valiant they should not be in the hands of the billion they should not be available and I don't see any need for those kind can even put taken down animal and then there's what about you live in Pottstown Pennsylvania what about if you lived in Pottstown Montana and you had a cattle form and you had beers and rolls and things like that you know I I think you could have some yeah there was a recruiter and a leopard I grew up there up in the mountains up I close to all heck I can't think of an who is port area all of the little league Pennsylvania as I do yeah okay you know they can tell you what what okay back dear price but my sister he lived on a farm I am we live on a mini farm where I grew up at one of season rob there except I'm not saying that everybody every you want those guns on them but but I just I put a record then it would it would kill them hi for enough yeah and there is a bullet out that this weekend is the last two days I heard on the news I can't remember complete details of the global a young enough to still be a baby he's outside nothing happening but also on a boat comes down from no where into his leg so someone shot a gun somewhere and it's a lot that happens Gloria more than we want to think about it innocent kid is an innocent people particularly when guns are shot in urban areas where population is more dense there are people have been sitting in their living room and then shot and killed yeah but what is it an ordinary bullets they said that this one is one of them that is made that it explodes and tear things apart one that will get into the skin yeah now why is something out like that out on the market well that's a Miller that's a military bullet that is intended to basically exploded how does this a value get horrible that's a great question that's a great question and they should and shouldn't have on that's that's for sure all good questions I thank you very much you keep calling and I want to pay them if you decide to run for president any time I will call for you thank you very much for that will not happen trust me on that I am having too much fun what I'm doing right now okay have a great day thank you hi Lucy Donna has to say Donna Boston Donna how are you not gonna idea and okay forty seven ladder Maddox I take them off the market he now explain and somebody wearing out statistics that we were nine terror eighteenth in the world or whatever yeah well we're actually night yeah I think that if you take away your right but if you take away Chicago in Baltimore okay we're ninety nine approximately on the list of murders by god well I think was in the world is a different a figure that he was citing I think that you're if you're citing in may I'm not sure if Baltimore and Chicago as just two cities I mean Chicago has been has been having about six or seven hundred homicides a year Baltimore location weapons and what do you have you have Chicago this weekend fifty eight murdered was in NY is the one it was one homicide was eight last weekend was one on the side this weekend yeah sorry look let me say this don okay the point that you're making he is a good point it's a good point because if a kid on the south side of Chicago or kids in in Boston is shot and killed and whether it doesn't matter that kid was in a K. or whether and whether or not it's a hand gun but the question is this why you should any civilians have eight case or a ours and be able to do with that kid did in el Paso this weekend if he had to walk in there with him gone let's say he wanted to kill a bunch of people that he might have killed a bunch of people their guns but I don't think he would kill twenty Donna well first of all any gun can be adapted and if you go on the internet which is actually cute heard to me if you're if you're if you're adapting guns you go to jail well without a doubt but they're still going to get where they can go in and and get a clip that holds you know hundreds around don't you can always cancel any problem come back to my suggestion here's my question direct question today from Dan to Donna is there any reason why private citizens I'm not military I agree with you any obvious all weapons off the market and then you have a problem big data type of a you know I watch your diet doctor tonight being interviewed he wrote a book on why the use the mail nineteen to twenty five whatever he is doing what they're doing and it was actually it made so much sense to me you know like you said there's a million problems and we gonna have to check wanted to China sees outside out of twenty the last twenty seven mass shooters twenty six of them didn't come from a regular family they were all missing five is there is no Boy Scouts you know they don't pull on right that's a society thing and that's what you that's huge so what I'm saying as with what we can deal with initially and maybe maybe of some parents will realize that if you like you can sit in the basement all summer and just play video games it's not really good for academic development and if you're really interested in your kid you need to spend some time playing catch with the kids should noobs in the backyard or maybe just talking to your kid

But presumably just employee to employee was not specifically mentioned. So they're all kinds of variations on this theme and one eight six six five O jimbo's, we go back to the calls here. Of course, the circumstance that I mentioned before the break was the break-up. So you got two people and they're working together the company, and they both do a tremendous job and together even better working for the company, and they develop a romantic relationship and think you're still going great. And they're they're going out each other and having a great old time and working together. And then they have the break-up the big break-up huge monstrous break-up things are going so well at work anymore. So there mills to consider what six five O, JIMBO. All right. Let's go to. David in Creston, Iowa. Hello, david. About that. And the company that can get pretty bad writ. Wants to go public and deal with the thinking. Then finding different take it to work. You know, honestly, I think that you probably have hit on a pretty important thing seriously here as unfortunate as it may be certain circumstances. Probably some form of such prohibition. Is the the only way that that you could really make this work. I think that that. And again, I'm sure the more the few executives of hated that. And it may be suffered because of it. But the the downside potentially is just really big one eight six six five O, JIMBO one eight six six five five four six two six. How do you feel about these workplace relationships, especially if the hashtag be to era Brian in cedar falls? I awoke. Hello, brian. Yes, sir. A little bit before the the the hashtag movement, right? Back in two thousand five I just got out of college. And I had my first big boy pay job and. Different might tell in the grown up world. And there they had the thing. Was there a secretary with had a relationship with the head maintenance guy at a plant? I was working at the there was that she was completely and utterly married. And everyone was cool with it. And I just thought that was the most bizarre thing in the world is like my first grownup job. And I'm looking at this like this thing. Well, I mean, sometimes different companies have different dynamics at work. Of course, you've got all kinds of different factors. You've got different kinds of businesses. You got different kinds of challenges. You've got different people different individuals involved there. I I worked one time. Just very briefly part time for a mom and pop radio operation. And. Mom and pop started out this way. But they wanted what they got married. They. The pop at owned the station, and they'd together ran the place and Sonny boy became the sales manager and. Run off the bat. You knew that you had to to be in good graces of all three or you were in a world of hurt. Every place is different Brian every circumstance is different. Yeah. It was such a weird feeling. I remember like I felt I felt bad or little dirty like for the husband. Oh. Mayor then she's got another void. Well, that's the kind of situation where you just want to go where nowhere near that. You don't want to beat anywhere round that circumstance. I mean, there are no winners in the in that circumstance. I I've seen people who who were tempted you maybe they they knew the family. The the boss of the wife at home. I think that the best course of action discretion is the better part of outer you just stay away from anywhere near that. You you pretend you don't know you look the other way, I've never been all such a case. You didn't you didn't get involved. You. No. I mean, just cries out. No, no, don't go near that. No. I'm on the way. Yeah. I think that that's the best way to to go about that. Seriously. There's just no percentage in being involved in that if you got involved you'd be doing anybody any favors that. That's that's another another side of of course, the whole issue here, but we hadn't talked about. But one that's worth considering this is Gloria in Pottstown, Pennsylvania. Hello, gloria. Good to have a role on that. Because it can get out of hand. And then. Age with some people wanting to get gun to express. Think sometime I hear where you know. Shootings and stuff. I think what was going on there. Never know somebody gets really upset, and and they commit a nine millimeter the secretary. Yeah. A lot of ways. I think it's good. Yeah. I again, as I say it, it's unfortunate. But I think it probably has to be. So I think the point is is well taken have you ever experienced personally glory ever seen? This kind of thing happened. Yes. And then the one time I hate to admit it. But I got involved with the boss. Oh well. Tell us more. Everybody all across America's listening in rapt attention to Gloria go ahead, Gloria. Because we got we. You know, I think everyone knew but. We. At work. And so on. Well, that that's of course. Vital is that you act professional, and of course, you've got to maintain the charade. Even if you you you watch people wake knowingly at you, this kind of thing. Yeah. First person I gone with those shorter than me not too much shorter ride that was back when that short people got no business. I get you know. Office and come and okay. Thinking that song. You look at me. All right. Stop that. I will tell you an interesting story that that happened to me I had forgotten about this. Now, this was evolved. My first wife she and I and anchored the news together in Washington. But it so happened that that she had been working at a different radio job, and this particular station. Oh, what the heck which I'll remain WTO p. This particular station hired her to work at the station and before long we had been named the morning co anchors. However, this station had this distinct policy against this sort of thing. But they they put us together at the station. I they hired her from her other job, then they put us together on the air. But they cannot bring themselves to admit that we were married because of this company policy, and so they gave her an air name gave her an air name and the weather guy. We had was a personal friend of ours. We had him over in our house and the new us. He and his wife. And he would make little candid comments on the air about the the air name, Laura Walters, and he would make comments. Well, hope you Laura I have a great weekend. Jim this kind of thing like like, the why would we be having a great weekend? Oh, because we we live in the same house possibly so some companies will bend over backwards in a case like this one eight.

Is the vote your vote counts? Yep. You know, you they can steal it. They can take away your right to vote. But even if people people to the president. The my phone ranks are even people the president of the electoral college factors, you're only when for the president. That's the only place for the HR colleges involved. That's the point you would it be acceptable vote for your governor. Such a way your Senator your house of Representative person alderman. Now, we need to do away with the electoral college. And there's this this fair vote dot org is the website. There's an organization that has put together this initiative and once enough states sign onto it that they represent a majority of electoral college votes than those states all commit to throw their electoral college votes toward whoever wins the popular vote, regardless of what the electoral college vote is regardless of how their state went. And so that would create a national, you know, the real vote, whatever you call popular vote for the presidency, and it would render the electoral college irrelevant. And without a without a constitutional amendment and the and the group that is blocking. This is the red states red states are refusing to go along with this. We just added one day. I think it was Colorado. Just added added themselves to this list recently. But we're still I think about seventy or eighty electoral college votes short yet. I was just going to say all those things whenever we talk. We shouldn't just talk about one of those three or four things that are have, you know, a the flaws that ought to be all put together and put under the Republicans would do talk about your sacred. Right. Right. And then pointing out that you don't really have a right, but your vote of the president and essence does not count. Well, as getting on the state, you're it as as William Rehnquist famously wrote in his decision in Bush v gore two thousand where George Bush claimed that if Al Gore that if the votes in Florida were actually counted as Florida Supreme Court had had demanded if the votes in Florida, we're actually countered it would quote cause irreparable harm to plaintiff, George W Bush. And of course, I mean, that's literally from the from the from the lawsuit. Right. That that if they got the vote it will cause irreparable harm to George Bush, and that's why Bush pursued gore and in that decision Rehnquist in his decision. William Rehnquist chief Justice of the US supreme court and who made his chops back in the sixties in Arizona big bear of guy six to two hundred pounds. Big guy used to stand outside of or in actually inside polling stations in Hispanic and native American communities and just give people hell if they were trying to vote and William Rehnquist wrote, and I quote from memory, but I'm pretty sure I'm quoting word for word. There is no right to vote for the president of the United States in the United States constitution, and and he was right through and it was. Yep. Yep. And we need to fix that Richard spot on. Thank you for the call Glenn in New York City, Glenn what's up. Yeah. I think we should call it FDR, socialism FDR. And they're making did and is near the word liberal making slender it. Yup. And and every case they get and if they let him argue enough DR. Yeah. I am an FDR liberal. I am an FDR progressive. I am FDR socialist. And that's going to cause particularly young people to go back and go who who is right? And and that's and that's a good educational process. Glenn spot on thank you for that Michelle in Pottstown, Pennsylvania. Michelle, what's on your mind? Anytime. I was calling to follow up from the discussion the other day about Fox News and the Colt light thing. And to just put out a story is my family about Pat Robertson. This Solomon has been added from the seventies and eighties. And if you're somebody who believes in his right-wing ideology, he says in a little bit of scripture, and Willie has some people totally convinced that he is the authority God speaks to him. And he really put out a lot of Willie people that who listen to him are not able to think for themselves and unfortunately in my family, I had some elderly elderly billing towards retirement relatives who lost a substantial amount of their savings because this lawn told people that God told him that the stock market was gonna crash and they went out and and some very poor financial decisions. And I see this with him. I.
