The Teddy Bear!

"Early in the year of Nineteen O one. The manager of the Bronx Zoo in New York got a very unusual letter. The typewritten note was dated January. Second Gentleman I have a small named Jonathan Edwards and we find we do not have the accommodations to keep him so I should like to present him to the Bronx Zoological Gardens. Can you send someone out here to tend to his shipment then written by hand next to this is a further question? I think it says or shall I ship him myself but it's hard to read the messy scribbled handwriting in any case the letter is signed yours. Truly t roosevelt. Now as you might have guessed that T- Roosevelt is Theodore Roosevelt. A man who would soon unexpectedly find himself as the president of the United States. But that probably wasn't the first thing that jumped out to William Hornets manager of the Bronx Zoo. His thoughts were probably something like bear a bear a pet bear in New York. Of course you don't have any accommodations to keep them. Who Does he's a bear and wait. Did you say his name is Jonathan Edwards? Were kind of name. Is that for a bear name. A bear poo or growly or berry made even snuggles. If he's got the right personality but Jonathan Edwards Kinda Weirdo. Oh right teddy. Roosevelt Theodore you see Theodore. Roosevelt had just finished his duty. As governor of New York State that term ended on December thirty first and on that upcoming March fourth he would be sworn in as vice president of the United States in the time between governing and vice president and it seems teddy him. The idol was trying to take care of some personal matters which included but were not limited to a live bear rather than ask the million questions that were surely. On the zookeepers. Mind William Hornets. Just said yes. It was Teddy Roosevelt after all right right but Hornets did ask where on earth the bear came from soon to be vice president. Roosevelt had already moved on to other matters because his reply was short. And Sweet. My dear Mr Hornets. The back came from West Virginia. Very Truly Theodore Roosevelt's. Let's not a lot of information from a man who could be pretty verbose that means he talked a lot and he also wrote a lot dude wrote thirty five books in his lifetime over one hundred and fifty thousand letters to people so you'd think he could have offered a bit more explanation as to what he was doing with a bear at his house a few months prior he did elaborate a bit more in one of those one hundred and fifty thousand letters that he wrote to a friend. He told his pal that some supporters in West Virginia had presented the bear to him as a gift. And well. You can't say no to a gift especially a Harry. One was sharp teeth honestly. A pet bear wasn't entirely off the Charts the Roosevelt while Jonathan Edwards. The bear would eventually go to live in the Bronx Zoo. It might not have felt that much different. From the Roosevelt home to the creature he would have been more than us to being surrounded by a mess of animals. And I'm not talking about the six Roosevelt kids running around the home. I'm talking about all of their pets. The list of Roosevelt family pets goes on and on there was a lizard named bill and a pig named MoD a badger named Josefa and a blue macaw named Eli Gail Barron. Sprinkle was a hen and Peter was of course a rabbit. There are also a whole bunch of Guinea pigs with names. That don't disappoint. They were called Admiral. Dewey Dr Johnson Bishop Tone Fighting Bob Evans and Father O'Grady. As if that weren't enough there was also a one. Legged Rooster Hyena a pony and my favorite a Green Garter. Snake named Emily Spinach. As you can see the Roosevelt's took their pets and their pet names quite seriously. Animal hijinks and Shenanigans were very common among the six Roosevelt kids once when brother. Archie was sick in bed. His siblings hatched a scheme to cheer him up. They lead their pony up the stairs to his room to surprise him which it certainly did but the pony was more excited to see his reflection in a bedroom mirror so much so that he would not leave and then there was the time that Quinton burst into his father's office at the time. Teddy Theodore Right. Sorry Theodore was in the middle of an important closed-door meeting with senators and other politicians closed doors. Don't always mean much to a kid with animals in his pockets and Quinton didn't think twice about interrupting the meeting. The men kindly obliged pause the meeting while the boy threw his arms around his beloved father who Shirley laughed proudly and started to shoot the boy away but Quinton had a surprise. The boy pulled four snakes out of his pocket and place them on the table in the middle of the room. Apparently these men did not have a similar menagerie of animals in their own households because these powerful yet easily frightened men jumped up like popcorn scrambled to the edge of the room. Faster than Greece geese it was surely a funny moment for the Roosevelt's so as we've said Jonathan Edwards would live his days in the Bronx Zoo but he wasn't the only fateful bear in Teddy's life. Okay he wasn't the only fateful bear in Theodore's life no there was another. Roosevelt was sworn in as vice president and March of nineteen o one and six months later in September. He was president of the United States. It wasn't supposed to happen that way. But President William McKinley was assassinated while attending the world's bear in Buffalo New York. Theodore Roosevelt took his place and made history in many ways. Theatre was an extremely energetic. Man Some say he had a photographic memory because he could do things like perfectly recite poems that he had read and not seen again for decades. He read books nearly every day. Some people saw him read two or three pages a minute. He was very proud of his speed reading skills but it wasn't just learning that he engaged in Roosevelt loved the outdoors. In fact as a president he set aside two hundred thirty million acres of land to protect and save so that Americans for many generations could enjoy these forests parks and Animal Sanctuaries Theodore love to spend time in nature himself. He loved to horseback ride and he was also an avid hunter in November of Nineteen. O Two just after his first full year as president. He made a hunting trip to Mississippi on invitation. From the governor of the state there were several other people in the party and before long the president was the only one who had not shot a bear. This was embarrassing for the governor. How could they leave? Teddy out right right right with the feodor so anyway. In an effort to guarantee success for the president's bear hunting trip the guides devised an unfortunate and unkind plan that involved tying a bear to a tree for Roosevelt to shoot when he discovered the creature in such a state. Roosevelt was disgusted and refuse to shoot. What could have been forgotten moment soon? Captured the American imagination and then gave birth to one of the most common items found in kids rooms. All around the world still today. A cartoonist was inspired by the story and sketched an image of Roosevelt refusing to shoot the bear the cartoon ran in the Washington Post which was a major newspaper in it immediately connected Roosevelt to bears in the minds of Americans probably most of whom never even realized that he had a pet bear in New York for a while. One American who saw this was a candy shop owner from Brooklyn New York named Morris Victim. It began with two soft cuddly stuffed toy bears that he and his wife Rose had made. He stuck those bears in the window of his candy shop and called them Teddy bears before long he spent all of his time making those and even started a toy company that would live on for decades. So whether you knew it or not. That teddy bear in your bedroom is named after a president who didn't even like being called Teddy.

Unsung Economists: Sadie Alexander

"In nineteen twenty one. But because of a race nobody would hire her as an economist. So a few years later, she got her LA degree and went on to have a lustrous career as a civil rights lawyer Bucknell university professor Nina banks has been researching the career in life of Sadie Alexander for almost two decades. And she's working on a pair of books about Sadie Alexander. But economists have not been really focused on her work because of the I think the the belief that when she wasn't able to practice economics that she really stopped focusing much on ecconomic issues, but I really found that that wasn't the case that for forty years, at least she was giving speeches around the country and all of those speeches dealt with issues that that dealt with the status of African Americans. So we don't have recordings of those speeches. But we do have the transcripts and in those speeches Sadie Alexander had fascinating things to say not just about issues that were relevant during her time. But about issues that still matter now, this is the indicator from planet money. I'm Stacey Vanik Smith. I'm caught of Garcia today on the show. Our first episode of series in which we shine a new light on an economist from the past an economist contributions. We think deserve another look I up Sadie Alexander.

Support also comes from ADT, America's trusted home security company can help protect you against the break ins fires and carbon monoxide twenty four seven emergency response when you needed most more at ADT dot com, Bucknell university, economists, Nina banks, recently, analyzed the speech that CD Alexander gave in nineteen forty five at Florida agricultural and mechanical university, and in the speech Sadie Alexander spoke to the audience about the persistence of racial discrimination and the status of black workers as marginal workers and other words workers who were the last to be hired and the first to be fired when. Businesses were letting workers go the year before that speech. President Franklin D Roosevelt had given a famous speech of his own in which the president had argued for a second Bill of rights and one of those rights would be the right to employment for anyone who is willing and able to get a job. In other words that the economy should propential- be at full employment where anyone who wants to work can find work. This would alleviate the economic insecurity of those marginal workers constantly wondering if they were about to be unemployed. Now, it was already understood at the time that win the economy is at full employment workers get paid more. Because when everyone who wants a job can get one then companies have to compete with each other to attract and hire workers and also to keep their own workers from leaving them for another job and the companies compete with each other by offering better wages and working conditions to workers city Alexander's early. Distinct contribution economics was her argument that full employment was also absolutely necessary. For achieving racial equality. So Sadie Alexander believed that having a fully employed labor force would increase workers pay and they're purchasing power. But of course, this could not occur. If whites continued to exclude black workers from having the right to work, so Sadie Alexander said that full employment was quote, the only solution to the economic subjugation of the negro and of the great masses of white labor. Obviously Sadie Alexander was speaking during a time in which segregation was both legally and informally embedded across American society, American institutions, and that segregation extended to the labor market in which many white workers viewed block workers as rivals as competitors for jobs. CD Alexander made the argument that in order to get rid of economic, insecurity, the whole working class people from all racial and ethnic backgrounds were in it together that they would all benefit from an economy at full employment, and that full employment could not be defined as just. Full employment for white workers. It had to include everyone because let's say that white workers were full employment. But black workers were not then not only with the black workers experienced the hardships of unemployment, but also white workers might continue to see unemployed black workers as threat to their jobs. So if everyone who wanted a job had a job there might be less suspicion between workers of different races, which would make it more likely that the white working class and the black working class would work together to bargain for better, wages and working conditions. Another part of CD Alexander's argument win the economy is not at full employment and therefore businesses don't have to pay higher wages than the owners of businesses can keep more of the profits for themselves at least in the short term. But need a Bank says Sadie Alexandra argued that this eventually leads to rising inequality and will become a big problem for the whole economy because if you exclude a big class of workers from having jobs, it means there are fewer people earning the money to buy the goods that were made by those businesses in the first place. Which again eventually could lead to an economic downturn. But you could prevent that outcome by increasing the earnings power of all workers. And again, that's what happens when the economy is at full employment. And then finally Sadie Alexander argued that full employment would free people from material want from deprivation or starvation or from a lack of basic needs. And so they would then also be free to pursue higher goals to realize their potential professionally and personally, and that would make it less likely that workers would become disillusioned with the government itself or with democracy, and like president Roosevelt Sadie Alexander feared that economic insecurity would result in quote, men and women who have lost hope demanding a dictator to take over the reins of government Sadie. Alexander was not a socialist. She believed in regulated capitalism says Nida banks, but she did also believe that the government had an active role to play in a cheerful employment for the economy when the private sector couldn't do that by itself. She. Envisioned a public work programme that addressed pressing needs that would enhance people's well-being she focused on improving housing conditions in urban slums or providing electricity to every form she talked about reducing illiteracy, reducing hunger and making sure that people were properly clothed. That's typically not what we think about today when we focus on public works as part of this goal of cheating full employment for the economy Sadie. Alexander also argued that the government should guarantee a job to people who would want one and professor banks believes that Sadie Alexander might even have been the first economist to make that case. In fact, a national jobs guarantee is a policy idea that is being hotly debated right now something else that communists are debating right now is the question of whether the economy is in fact at full employment, and there is obviously no way to know for sure how Sadie Alexander would answer that question. But here's what we can say the labor market has improved. A lot in recent years and the unemployment rate for black or African Americans has mostly been falling during that time. But at six point eight percent, it is almost twice as high as the unemployment rate for white Americans, which is only three point five percent. And according to the Economic Policy Institute, a think tank, a black worker with the same education as a white worker is only getting paid roughly eighty percent as much as the white worker, and that applies at every educational level, and that wage gap is bigger now than it was back in the year two thousand it. Of course, it isn't just in the economy where there still exist big racial disparities. Another place is in the very disciplined that Sadie Alexander tried to enter nearly a hundred years ago economics to see this. You just have to look at the numbers numbers that Anna Gifty Poku Osman senior at the university of Maryland knows really well, so basically in between two fifteen to sixteen five out of one thousand one hundred and fifty eight doctoral degrees and economics where worth of black women. So that's. Less than half of one percent. One half of one percent. The numbers for black men. Earning PHD's and for black undergraduate economics degrees are only slightly better. But in is trying to do something about this. She co founded the CD collective in organization that wants to create a better environment for black women to go into economics and this weekend. The Sadie collective is hosting the inaugural Sadie TM Alexander conference for economics. Anna says that it just felt natural to Namie organization and the conference after Sadie Alexander, we she was very interested in economic equality in advocating for marginalized groups is so we felt that that was in line with our overall mission sort of equalizing the playing field by giving black women the same opportunities that we've been seeing other people received in the field the conference is sold out which along with the papers and the upcoming books from Nina banks suggests that the legacy work and speeches of Sadie Alexander which had been forgotten for so long. 'economics might soon. Find a new and growing audience. This episode of the indicator was produced by Constanza yard, oh, edited by

"Historic performance directly tied to president Roosevelt. Listen. That was recorded in nineteen o six by the marine band. The president's own. It's known and president Roosevelt loved listening to the marine band. And we know that he also heard them perform this maple leaf rag by Scott Joplin because ragtime was all the rage at that moment in our history. In fact, there is a member of the marine band. Who recalled specifically the president Roosevelt's daughter Alice. Then known as Princess Alice. Was very much a ragtime fan. And during a White House reception. She came up to the band and said, oh, Mr. central men do play the maple leaf rag for me. And the conductor Mr. settlements said the maple leaf rag. Indeed, miss Roosevelt. I've never heard such a competent composition. And I'm sure it is not in our library. And Alice Roosevelt apparently said now now, Mr. central men, don't tell me that the band boys have played it for me time. And again when Mr Smith or Mr. van Polk was conducting and I'll wager they all know it without the music. They played it without the music. And then recorded it in nineteen. Oh six which is quite remarkable. And.

"That song apparently along with the other rough riders after their victory at the battle of San Juan hill. And it also became the inevitable theme song of his campaign for governor. When he was running for governor of New York in eighteen ninety eight and then he got tired of the song, and he didn't wanna hear it anymore. He couldn't help it because it was associated with him. And everything associated with him became something of a national obsession. There are a lot of firsts about Theodore Roosevelt. He was the first. Vice president to become president to then win a term of his own that later happened. Of course, the same thing with Calvin Coolidge in Harry, Truman and Lyndon Johnson. But Roosevelt was the first he was still is the youngest man ever to be president. He came to the White House at age forty two and president Roosevelt was a very very different kind of president because he had a young family, the young family with six children, including his glamorous daughter, Princess Alice. He wants said while he was president. I could either be president of the United States or I could control Alice I cannot possibly do both. She was the one who was eight total fascination and obsession for the press. They love the whole Roosevelt family, and the children were mischievous, and they had a horde and a menagerie of pets, and they like to take the pony for rides in the White House elevator which existed. President president Roosevelt was so active in so explosive with energy. He seemed to be uncontainable and people before Andrew Jackson had had what was called a kitchen cabinet informal. Advisers. Theodore Roosevelt had the tennis cabinet because he was never very good tennis player. He clearly didn't have the build forty was bulky by the time he became president of the United States weighed about two hundred pounds and was somewhere between five eight and five ten in any event. He he loved to hit. Tennis. He played sometimes football and tag and other things with his children. And when he would play tennis. He would take other people out who even hated the game of tennis to have them hit the ball back and forth with him because he needed his exercise. He loved chopping wood. He loved the out of doors hamp camping and hunting and one of his hunting expeditions to Mississippi. Ended up creating an international craze, which is still popular. And he he was on a bear hunt. And they had set up the bear hunt. They didn't realize that president Roosevelt loved hunting. And he killed literally thousands of animals in his time. He loved going after animals, but he didn't like what had happened in Mississippi. The guides had gone ahead with dogs and cornered a big old bear for him to shoot a mother bear. And they the the bear was battling the dogs. And finally, the guide hit the bear over the head with the butt of his rifle knocking senseless and then tied it up to a trunk of the tree. And then called the president and said president Roosevelt here, you can shoot the bear. And he said, that's not sporting. No, I won't do that. And so he went off and the the guy. Kill the bear with with a knife. And then later delivered the carcass to president Roosevelt who didn't really want it in any event. The story got out and the way the story got out is he declined to shoot the bear. Because it was a cub. And they let the cub go so much nicer story, but that became part of a famous cartoon, and then somebody had the great idea. Oh, let's create little cubby bear. And we'll call it a teddy bear because he was stuck with this nickname teddy. Even though he didn't like it. And he said anyone who called him by that name was someone who didn't know him. The other aspects of his personality was the first president to travel abroad. While president no one else had ever left the United States as president of the United States until Roosevelt. Did he went to to Panama to operate some steam shovels in the building of the Panama Canal, which was his proudest achievement is president. And there was a great deal of manipulation and back and forth. To get the Panama Canal built originally, Panama. What is Panama today was part of the nation of Columbia and president Roosevelt made a deal with them to pay them for the land that would be used for the canal, and then realizing that they had Uncle Sam on the hook. And they thought that Uncle Sam was really uncle sugar. They they went ahead and tripled the price. So there was a revolution in Panama to declare Panamanian independence and Roosevelt. Immediately recognize the quote new government of Panama American interests were in there immediately. And they went ahead and. And paid the new government of Panama the money to Columbia turned down. And basically is Senator Hayek. Our said years later, we stole it fair and square and people talked about building with now for years Roosevelt. Did it and it was crucial to American naval power because it connected, the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean and America could be dominant naval power in both of the world's most significant oceans and pass. Ships in between because the Panama Canal the. The other great achievement involving the navy is during his presidency. The size of the navy doubled. And he celebrated that by sending what was called the great white fleet on a round the world cruise basically the show every nation on earth. Hey, we're for real this America thing is no fluke. And this will be the American century the other great achievement that no one takes away from him, even his many many critics among historians and some his contemporaries is the achievement in conservation, creating a system of national monuments saving the Grand Canyon saving which later became Grand Canyon National park. The same thing happened with the Olympic mountains in the state of Washington where I live, and of course, he greatly popularized. The whole idea of preserving natural wonders for future generations and without question that was an epic achievement in in terms of the idea of him being a big government guy. There's a very fine book called Theodore the great conservative crusader by Daniel ruddy that argues, and I do think it's emphatically true that Roosevelt was at his heart. A conservative. He believed in reform, but only the reform you needed to do to move the nation forward to prevent radical change and destructive change. The one thing about Roosevelt. That was most extraordinary was his personality and a people founded magnetic fascinating. And he said at one point I always believe in going hard at everything my experience is it pays never to let up or grow slack and fall behind. He said that to one of his sons and a visitor to the White House said his personality, so crowds the room that the walls are worn thin and threatened to burst outward, you go to the White House you shake hands with Roosevelt. You hear him talk. And then you go home to ring the personality out of your clothes, the novelist Henry James whose novels, by the way, Roosevelt, very, very, frankly hated and wrote all about how much he hated them. He had a known Roselle for years through Harvard. He dismissed him as quote, the monstrous embodiment of unprecedented, and resounding, noise and noise is capitalized. But what did the man sound like? We actually know because his voice was recorded just four years after he left the White House. And I think listening to his voice and the quality of his voice. Some of the energy comes across even though that energy in the speech that he delivered the speeches. He delivered the were recorded were part of a doomed presidential campaign. We'll tell you about that. And more in Theodore Roosevelt, the all American boy, a very special broadcast of the Michael Medved Show. The Michael Medved Show. Hi this. Is Alexander green chief investment strategist for the Oxford club. Just for a moment. Like you to picture the perfect stock. No doubt.

"Very interested in your answer to Kayce question because it does seem like although the regulation did not occur in the wake of the financial crisis. The anger did not go anywhere. And you point out that part of the reason president Roosevelt took on the trust and engaged in actual trespassing. Breaking up of these big monopolies was because two reasons right that when popular sentiment is unmet, it leads to an embrace of autocracy or fascism and also that it undermines the power of government. Like is there a possibility that hope will come from pure self interest from government saying we don't have as much power. We talked to Neil Irwin about this from the New York Times about government, and and central bankers saying, wow, we don't have as much power as Facebook or Google could. And you know, you could call it government. You could also call it, we the people or democracy. It could be you have a popular mandate to actual. Yeah. I know. No. I think there is the problem is it has to be directed. One of the most dangerous things as sort of the the false friend of this movement. So fascist leaders in the thirties. There method was always the promised that they were going to tame business and make it obey them, and and sort of humble them. But it's the had this, you know, more subtly their interests were aligned and the most terrifying thing about about Germany Italy. I think was as union between private and public power that the great leader would would claim to be working on behalf of the people to subdue business and other elites and an obviously evil forces and foreigners and immigrants and whoever else but actually being cooperation with big business. And that's something we really have to watch out for in the United States is an extremist leadership, which ends up in union with monopoly corporations across the board leading a union of private and power. And I don't, you know, I'm not an alarmist by nature. But I think it is time to sound the alarm. Well, and then what about on the one hand there is this movement? I think you know, certainly, you're seeing a tech lash. There is a sense that there is. Clash attack. Lash crash. But okay. Yeah. I just learned this from. I just learned this term from my guest Mark Scott from politico over in London. So maybe they're just saying it in the UK, but that is happening. There is this sense that, you know, maybe drug prices are a little out of control, which is one example that you give in the book. But what about you could also argue that there are consumers who are starting to embrace business as a co equal branch of government who are starting to say,.

"president roosevelt" Discussed on 860AM The Answer

"Most recent history program all about Theodore Roosevelt, the all American boy. Theodore Roosevelt was a great hero. And a great veteran on this Veterans Day of the Spanish American war. And he was almost unbelievably heroic and providential very clearly providential protected from being killed when he should have been. He led a charge. Uphill into intense enemy fire the only man anywhere within a mile on horseback. Because the rest of the rough riders had their mouths not delivered in Cuba because things in terms of delivering material to Cuba. For the Spanish American warn 1898 those things were few bar. They were fouled up beyond all recognition. So he had this one horse the other horse of his drowned and his horse was called little Texas. And he's riding up and he'll back and forth in front of his line. Now, one fifth of the men with him. Were killed mostly in some of them grievously wounded on the way up that hill. And he's riding in front of the law is nothing hits him, and he goes on and this becomes the decisive battle of the war. He charges up kettle hill. Then he's done with that. Then he takes a number of buffalo soldiers. Black cavalry men who served in segregated units. At the time. They followed Colonel Roosevelt because their own commanders weren't there. And boom, he's charges now up San Juan hill takes the San Juan heights, and basically kind of wins the war now later on he was blocked from getting the congressional medal of honor for political reasons. Fancy that at the time, but he did get the congressional medal of honor later, and he always after he left the presidency wanted himself addressed as Colonel Roosevelt. Not president Roosevelt. Not governor Roosevelt, but Colonel Roselle any met. Colonel Roosevelt comes home. He gets elected governor of New York. It's eighteen. Ninety eight election and. Right after that. He writes a book while he's governor starts the book before he takes over as governor of New York finishes the book, and the book is called the rough riders and the story about his regiment where he recruited all these colorful people and Cowboys and polo player is an Ivy league football stars. And the book is a wonderful read. I highly recommend it. I mean, you will you pick it up, and you can't put it down in any event. The most famous humorous in the country at the time was a guy named Finley Peter done. He did a character called Mr. Dooley. And his column that appeared every week out of Chicago was always mister dole the and Mr. Hennessy apparently sitting in a bar. They did that and talking about things. And at this point, Mr. Dooley is talking about the rough riders book that Theodore Roosevelt is written. And he's talking about this. Mr. Roosevelt says Titi Roosevelt. He calls him. And he says, yeah, he apparently he didn't need any help at all to conquer all the Spanish people. He won the war all on his own charging up the hill all by himself. And in fact, he should have called his book alone in Cuba. Which is kind of a great line. So here's what happened. Right after the column appears he gets a letter from the governor of New York Theodore Roosevelt, says dear mister Dunne. I regret to inform you that my entire family and all my friends greatly enjoyed your review of my book. But now having had at me to your own benefit. I think you owe me one so please come to dinner at the governor's mansion. And was so flummoxed had been a very kind of nasty review putting down Roosevelt from being he goes Centric. And he he comes to have dinner with them. They became friends for the rest of their lives and really close friends, and it was like this situation of turning enemies into friends between Pete Davidson, and Dan Crenshaw there's a punchline when Theodore Roosevelt died in nineteen nineteen the age of sixty. His friend Finley Peter Dunne had something very very special to remember about him. That's relevant to what we're talking about here. I'll get to that. And your calls coming.

"And that using that you're hearing. It'll be a hot time in the old town tonight. Was used by Theodore Roosevelt as something of a theme song why? Because it was used for his regiment. The rough riders before they went to Cuba in the Spanish American war, then played at virtually every rally until he got rather sick of it while he was running for governor of New York in eighteen ninety eight before he became president, of course. And I I need to answer a couple of questions at the very beginning. First of all the idea that I call him Theodore Roosevelt and not teddy Roosevelt as he's often known. Well, that's because president Roosevelt always loathed the name teddy winning was a tiny. Boy, he was called TD, and he didn't like it. And he never liked being called teddy, and he wants declared anyone who calls me teddy doesn't know me at all. And I certainly hope that by the end of this broadcast. You will know president thea. Roosevelt. Well, there's also great confusion about the pronunciation of his name. There are people who say Roosevelt, and they will say Theodore Roosevelt, and Franklin Roosevelt. Then there are other people who say, no, no, they know that Franklin said Roosevelt because we have all kinds of recordings of him saying, but they'll say Theodore Roosevelt. He always said Roosevelt. He very clearly did. And I have become friends with president Roosevelt's great granddaughter. In other words, her grandmother was president Roosevelt's daughter, and I asked her is there any doubt at all that everyone in your family says Roosevelt. She says, no, it's Roosevelt stop with the Roosevelt. And then the last question about the title of this very special broadcast on the Michael Medved Show. Calling him the all American boy. I do that because part of the fascination with president Roosevelt is his boyish nece which lasted is tire life. He never quite grew up. In fact, one of the most famous statements about him was made by the British diplomat, Cecil spring rice who became a very good friend with president Roosevelt when he was in the White House. And he said, you must always remember about the president that he is about six and there were others. Who were also impressed with his boyish nece Ailey route the gray eminence who served in TRS cabinet. Said on the president's forty sixth birthday. He said you've made a good start in life and your friends have great hopes for you. When you grow up. And then later six years later in nineteen ten he greeted him on his birthday by writing Tim this after president Roosevelt had been reelected Theodore, you, you're still the same great overgrown boy as ever. And most movingly of all, and I just came across this. And it's stunning to me. Is. Former president Theodore Roosevelt humbled himself and came to the White House to beg a favor. Of the man who had defeated him in his last race for the presidency. Woodrow Wilson, he he didn't like Woodrow Wilson, he wants referred to Woodrow Wilson as the real WW stood for weasel words, which is quite a thing to say, but he came to president Wilson in the White House in one thousand nine hundred seventeen after America entered World War One and president Roosevelt begged him to allow the president he begged the president to allow him president Roosevelt to organize a regiment and lead a regiment at the front because he wanted to spend his own money to recruit people to get volunteers. And president Roosevelt at the time was in his late fifties. He wasn't in perfect health. And Wilson said no. But afterward. He wrote this in his diary. He is a great big. Boy, I was charmed by his personality. There was a sweetness about him. That is very compelling. You cannot resist the man. And people felt that way about Theodore Roosevelt for most of his life. And part of the reason that he remained an overgrown boy his entire lifetime was because his actual boyhood was at least for early years. So miserable. He had a terrible case of asthma as a child. He was born to a family of privilege, otherwise he might not have even survived, but his family had come here with some of the original Dutch settlers in. What was originally called new Amsterdam? They came in the middle of sixteen hundreds and the family was always successful. They were prosperous his father..

"Retirement plans, social security planning, and when you take how you take it and what you do with. It is probably one of the biggest decisions you'll ever make. That's what we are talking about today on it's your money. Welcome back. I'm Geoff Logan, president of premier retirement planning and wealth management with my co host, Linda witty, welcome back. Welcome back to you. Well, we got a good little overview of social security in our opening line. This is kind of like social security one a one really, but it's amazing. If you don't really think about it. I think sometimes we just take it for granted that social security is something that is just done for us. And we're just going to get a paycheck and the government's already figured it out. But it is something we'd put into it's not something that right? And I think sometimes we get it confused with an entitlement as opposed to getting our money back out of the trust fund is not a we are entitled to it. From the standpoint of it is our money that the government promised that to us, though, we we give it to them to hold for us to to to save it for us for later. I think the government sometimes has different views, but bottom line is a couple of misconceptions out there that we don't know. Well, one is the tax ability. I think a lot of people think they go social security. I've already put it in there. It was a tax. I am going to be taxed on it. Now when president Roosevelt came out with that the the plan there was a reporter. I remember reading the history on this as reported that said, hey, you know, is this going to be taxed when we get it. Or is it not like, no, we're withholding for you. It's not going to be taxable income now, it'd be silly. It wouldn't make sense. Well in one thousand nine hundred ninety there became well. Actually, nineteen ninety was the second time that nineteen Ninety-three the omnibus budget reconciliation act was the second time that there was a line acted that made social security taxable depending on your income. Fifty percent of your social security can be taxable and as of nineteen Ninety-three eighty five percent of your social security can be taxed to you. So that does mean at least fifteen percent of your money is not taxed the curious thing is well, gee, that must only be a thing for rich people. Well, maybe when the law was passed the rich person made forty four thousand dollars net income a year. But that law has not changed or or that amount has not grown with cost of inflation or anything if you make more than forty four thousand dollars as a married couple on your gross income, and that's including your provisional income sources, which we may or may not get into today. But depending on all your income sources that count if you're Jessica. Income is more than forty four thousand dollars you'll pay tax on eighty five percent of your social security, which means pretty much any middle-class person is going to have to do that. If you're married, and if you're not married this you're single it's only thirty two thousand to get to that max bracket. Well, are there ways that you can solve that problem? Maybe well, I wanna back up. You just mentioned provisional income. A lot of people ask well, what is provisional? Well, that is that includes any money from half of your social security any wages that you're making. If you decide to take social security at the same time any money that you're drying off of your 4._0._1._K's or your IRA. So that makes a big hit when you're seventy and a half kick in any interest or dividends set you're getting off of your investments any pension money that you're getting any capital gains, and any inherited money, so bad one thing, you know, that even taxable and tax free interest. From bonds is included in provisional income municipal bonds are tax free people think well, I'll just put all the rest of my money in municipal bonds. I'll get tax free income, and it won't count towards my social security. That is not the case it will actually count towards social security. That's another. Ooh, I didn't know that until you get your first actually turned down after he retired. Single people that those thresholds are even lower. And so that's where we're talking about. When is the right time, what are some strategies that you can use? And we we kind of recommend several of these strategies of one stay below that those thresholds, and and you know, if you have a lot of retirement money that's going to be taxed and forced upon you to take out. That's why we include tax planning now. Tax planning includes how much taxes you're gonna pay on your social security, and you know, it is possible to make a six figure income and not pay any tax on your social security as long as your provisional income is on those categories that keep it below. Now, some of the non provisional income or what our tax free income. We love lurks. We love roths. We love. What else is non provisional? Mostly just tax WinCo is the main main sources, and that's some of the strategies to help reduce how much you're getting taxed on your social security is to do. Roth conversions are move or convert some of your IRA money into the lurk, which is a life insurance retirement plan that you get tax free income. And then there's also you can spend your own principal. That's not taxable income so few structured, maybe you prepay taxes, and even if you have some savings, maybe you have some. Income that you can offset from rental properties. And you can you know, zero that out with depreciation and things like that. There are ways to manipulate your tax adjusted gross income number and you're and the number that they use to tap for taxability. So again, planning your social security, also dovetails very nicely into an not only your income plan, but also your tax plan. And is why we have that five point retirement readiness. Find it's not just about maximizing your social security. It's maximize your overall income net of taxes. Well, any decision that you're making for your financial plan should not be made in isolation. If each other it has to look the holistic view of what you have what your goals and objectives are social security shouldn't be while you're afraid that it's not gonna be there. Let's take it now at sixty two and we'll get into why you may not want to do that. Which is actually our next mix miss conception or the issue to take into consideration your. Spousal benefits could be at risk if you don't. Well, I stand fully how to take your right? Outlawed some of the tricks. You can play with spousal benefits where you could actually take half of your spouses and wait for your own to go up higher. Now, there are a few people lingering right now that we're born after that that are taking advantage of currently. So if you're right at that age where you can take social security, you might be able to. You know, play a couple of of tricks, but but it's few and far between. However, when it talks when you talk about an overall income plan, and you have to consider how do I make a best maximize my income. Maybe my spouse, for example, my spouse stayed at home with children in special needs daughter for most of her adult life. She's now just finally getting out of the house again, unfortunately, but bless her heart for being an angel to our little angel and. She doesn't have the credits to get very much social security, very small very small amount. So her best benefit is to get mine. So now because I understand spousal benefits. I understand it's smart for me to try to maximize. Maybe not try to fudge numbers enough to where I don't have to pay social security on stuff or whatever it. It's. Okay. If I maximize my social security contributions because I'm also maximizing hers, right? When planning for social security understanding how spouse's benefit is critical. Like, you mentioned if the breadwinner decides for whatever the reasons why people do need to take it at sixty two understanding that you're going to get only seventy seventy five percent of what your benefit could it been? If you waited two full retirement age, which is either sixty six or sixty seven at this point in time. But then when you pass away, you're also giving your spouse, the least amount of survivor benefits as well. Right. And that has to be then that's why we put it on a a. Forty-year income plan on a spreadsheet where we see what happens on the what ifs between now. And the time you're about one hundred years old, and you might find out that an early election could leave a spouse or a survivor hanging especially in a situation. Like, I just mentioned with mine. Because my wife is really relying on my half and doesn't have her own to fall back on that. You know is another big a big issue here. What about widow benefits? What if I die early? What if I die later? Do I have enough other income sources to provide that guaranteed income? Of course, social security is just the start of a broader picture, but it's a good place Tak about you know, from full retirement age to seventy your benefit grows at eight percent. Well from sixty two to sixty six full retirement age it grows at six percent. So you could be leaving a lot of money on the table as well that could be and again that depends on your personal situation, your other resources, your long jevon and your family, and what you have to support a spouse. Should you have an early earlier than expected demise? You wanna see how social security fits into your plan and see that overall income.

"The park. The press was not happy. They had been sent to document Roosevelt adventures with little to go on. Rumors began to circulate at one point, the New York Times incorrectly, printed that Roosevelt had shot mountain line within the park. Roosevelt was livid, but he felt it was wrong to call out a paper. He had a long standing relationship with upon learning the truth. The times later published an apology and clarification while some paper scrimped to find even the most meager of stories. Others simply became annoyed with Roosevelt's, lack of transparency at Yellowstone. The New York morning Tribune ran a piece on April twenty second nineteen, three than mocked the wild story circulating in the absence of real news president Roosevelt on his trip through Yellowstone park did not fall into a canyon was not attacked by bear was not showered with hot liquid from geyser and. Was not almost lost in the snow. The president needs a new press agent on his final days in Yellowstone, the locals Astros felt to lay the cornerstone for a railway, arch near the entrance unhappy to take off his camping gear. Roosevelt reluctantly through on a suit and headed over expressing his love for the park. He addressed the crowd. The Yellowstone park is something unique in this world as far as I know nowhere else in any civilized countries. There to be found such a tract of veritable wonderland made accessible to all visitors where at the same time, not only the scenery of the wilderness, but the wild creatures at the park are scrupulously preserved as they are here. The only change being that these same wild creatures have been so carefully protected as the show. Literally astounding tame nece after parting ways with Burroughs Roosevelt traveled through South Dakota, Nebraska and parts of the midwest. He arrived at the Grand Canyon on may six Roosevelt's jaw reportedly dropped in amazement when he first saw what locals had dubbed the big ditch. But Roosevelt was even more shocked. To discover that the state was considering opening up the canyon for mining to protect it from such a fate. The idea of turning the Grand Canyon into a national park had I been raised back in the eighteen eighties, but three bills had failed in congress due to resistance across the state at the time, the Williams sun newspaper in northern Arizona had railed against the national park plan, calling it a fiendish and diabolical scheme. The paper opined in an op-ed that whoever came up with the conservation notion at obviously been suckled by a sow and raised by an idiot, the fate of Arizona depends exclusively upon the development of her mineral resources. Roosevelt disagreed with this line of reasoning. He called for a forum of Arizona locals to discuss the Grand Canyon. I want to ask you to one thing in your own interest and the interest of all the country. Keep this great wonder of nature as it is. Now, I hope you won't have a building of any kind tomorrow, the grandeur and subliminally of the canyon. You cannot approve upon the ages, have been. At work on it and man can only mar it, keep it for your grandchildren and your children's children in all who come after you as one of the great sites for Americans to see it would take another three years before the fate of the Grand Canyon was decided in the meantime, the trip through Yellowstone with Burroughs had helped confirm Roosevelt's views that the actions he took to protect nature had been justified and the journey to the Grand Canyon had helped him recognize that. Even the country's greatest natural treasures were threatened by commerce and developed what it was Roosevelt's time with John Muir in Yosemite, it would change the course of the American conservation Roosevelt was about to learn that if he was truly going to leave a Mark, your needs to do it himself..
