"The downtown Tana will help reduce travel time for writers and street traffic for dried er's drivers. That's because it will provide, you know connections for the new light rail system. However, it'll take nearly a decade before those projects become reality. Yeah, the transit agencies CEO and president, Randy Clog says there's a reason for the You know the the lengthy timeline, he says, quote I don't want, you know, I don't want to save a small amount of time and have things not built correctly and have safety issues during construction. For all those other matters, you know that. You know, we want to do it right is what he says. We're going to a fast we're going to do it right. Now, while project Connect is made up of Syriza projects, each within his timeline and budget, according to officials will take months years decades. The downtown tunnel will either be built out of the orange or blue line, which is yet to be determined, Clark said. There are several steps that they have to go through before shovels actually start moving some dirt. Jump in here in 51283605 90. Here's what he says. We need federal funding to do this program. What? Yeah, I'm sorry What We need federal funding to do this program. That was the entire model that we built. The program on, he said. To get federal funding obviously had to follow a federal rules. And one of the most important federal rules is the need for a process, which is really just a nice way of saying the environmental review process and that's not just environmental that they have to go through, you know, with historical buildings. Equity access to transportation. It's a holistic idea. With the idea of the environment in mine is what Randy Clark says So starting a January complimentary officials plan to host You know they're you know, the next round of project Connect community meetings to work with the community on the future of these projects. So there you go. Do the people of Austin, Texas. No. What they voted for. No, no, no, they do not. They do not. I'm sure a few of them do. Probably a handful of them Do Ah lot of them got in. There had no idea what the hell they were doing. But let me tell you the when this thing is being built, if it ever gets off the ground, Frankly, Todd, I will be. I will be surprised if a lot of this even gets off the ground. If a lot of it even looks anything like what their their their warning here and by the way is we've said many times. Federal funding is not guaranteed. It is not But let me tell you what it will look like a bomb went off for over 10 years his forest construction in this town. What we will have to endure during the instruction will be absolutely horrible Todd and don show Head cocked. Enel is screaming. They are begging you to get back to the dentist. Because you need to folks you've been putting that off for about, you know, nine much now. A lot of you during the pandemic. We're afraid to go. The dentist. Come on. They know exactly what they're doing. They're they're taking all the Koven 19 precautions and then some. So you gotta stop delaying going back to the dentist? Because if you delay those plane ings in that routine dental work, you just ask him for trouble. You're going to have problems that are gonna come from that. And you don't want that to happen. And if you have other dental issues to you've been delayed. Come on. There's just going to get worse. So get back to the dentist.

They refer to him as the wake and bake out. This is ridiculous. It is a corner fund raiser. Listen, Capital Metro's CEO Randy Clark. He's very excited that you voted Yes, on prop. A very excited man. The guy's looking at a mountain of cash, and he's ready to do something with it on even he's not exactly sure but more trains. More buses. Exactly what that could look like in the near future. Well, it's yet to be determined. A tunnel here is Randy Clark. But we're calling transformation plan, and it truly is a transformational plan a very large expansion of our bus system, including a lot of rapid bosses, multiple rail lines. And an underground subway system in the downtown area, but low on parking rides neighborhood circulators. This is a transformation mobility kind of environmental equity plan for our city, and I'm really proud of the team and really appreciate off the community. Having trusted confidence at us to move this program forward. There you go in a conversation on K x A. N. He was asked. When will some of this begin? That's our commitment. We have to deliver that program for this community and we're going to do everything we can to do that. So We have some projects already in the federal processing our mental rapid projects. We have a few of the Red line project improvements already started designed. So our goal is to work through that with the community and the design process and get kind of ideally getting the ground, maybe as early as late next year on a couple first out projects Eddie in the federal processing our mental rapid projects. We have a few of the Red line project improvements already started designed, so our goal is to work through that with the community and the design process and get Kind of idea. We get on the ground, maybe as early as late next year on a couple first out projects and then the big Nita process for orange and blue line we've been working on, but we'll really go in earnest starting in January, because those are the two largest projects. There you go. Now. We often take phone calls, Don you, uh, you often expressed this opinion that even our buses are not full. There's just not a demand for this kind of transportation at this capacity because you don't see full buses out fishin and I know I get calls. No, you you know you ought to see Russia Our you know, you know, See that? Well, the thing is, Mand, I I've been I've been on our roads every time of day. And I'm sorry I have still never, ever, ever, ever seen a packed bus? The only maybe maybe a shuttle. Maybe a shuttle that's picked up some people at Republic Park and taking him to a C l or something like that. You know that kind of thing. I see full buses. I mean, I see a lot of activity on that red line coming out of Leander, what you said, But But even before the pandemic, they only had 3000 board. Today. That's not a whole lot of people they collect about a million dollars in the fare box cost about $18 million to operate during the pandemic they've only had about 1500 boardings. I just wonder. Is there even a need for the red line anymore? With so many people working from home? That's the thing there. That's that's what gets me about this every time. Is it convenient for some people? Do they get a kick out of doing it? They enjoyed Hey, I can read the paper on the way to work one or make a phone call. If that's cool, that's great. That's really need, but Doesn't really serve any purpose doesn't really serve a purpose doesn't really to me if it's going to be $7 billion as a down payment We know it's going to be born that it has to mean something. It has to mean change. It has to mean things are going to be one of the result. We want to see traffic congestion reduced. I have to see a difference. I have to see we're not going to see a difference in in our air quality. We're not going to see a difference in traffic flow. Absolutely. You're right. We're But all we're going to see is something that's like, Oh, that's cool. I might do that. That's great. But But what does it mean? Here's the thing, even scooters, even in the Prop. Eight ballot language it talks about. You know, this is, you know, addressing climate change, and it was full of feel good Social Justice Warrior tidbits. Basically, and that's why they marketed to young people in it. Gotta prove this was a young person versus old people that have the money to pay the bills. That's what it Wass Young versus old vote and the City Council did an amazing job reaching out to young voters on this using social media. Let's say Bob is checking in from Barton Springs this morning. Good morning, Bob. Hey, guys, love you're so I listen to it whenever I can Thank you. Bomb called in to talk about demands on front over some stuff like that Dad drove a bus in downtown Los Angeles for almost 20 years. And the bus was almost always at least three quarters full. But they were in the buses every five minutes down almost every street. Yeah. So? So you're saying that capital Metro had more buses running more frequently than more people would ride I believe so because I'll give you an example. I rode the bus for a while in Southern California, but it was in Orange County. Okay, I lived off of Beach Boulevard, which is like one of the main thoroughfares through Orange County. The bus ran at peak hours. The bus ran every 20 minutes. And on the weekends grand every 45 minutes, So there was hardly ever anybody on him and a few Mr Bust. It was a huge problem. Gotcha. Yeah. You can't be late. You know, you can't be Laker. We're late for workers school. So you're saying If these buses ran more frequently, then it would get Texans out of their cars and onto a bus. If we had more options have it made more sense. If I had that kind of flexibility. I don't know if that's true or not. I think I think I think the real issue that capital Metro is facing is more Texans. And we don't want to get out of our vehicles Love that independence. We We really don't At least if you're you know 35 older. Yeah. That that that's right. That's right. If young people run this city now young people who don't even give a rip if they get their driver's license or not, now, now that we've got to think about that, that that's a big piece of this, Todd there. That's the reality. We do have a population coming up here who they turned 16. You and I could not get down to Teo to two. DPS quick enough to take our driver's test was a rite of passage for us. Yes, it was a C. It is a burden now. We that was that was our flexibility. That was our freedom. Our gateway to the world. That was that changed literally changed our lives, You know, in the course of one afternoon. That's not the desire. Listen, there's no doubt there was a lot of opposition to this proper people concerned about their taxes. Randy Clark, the CEO of Capital Metro, Yeah, see I don't get in the politics, sight of it on my staff, and my job is to run the transit system and be technically lead on these items. I will just say this way. Understand what Garza someone supported property or did not supported proper do not support property. We own that responsibility to deliver.

"Very pricey transit. Overhaulin Capital. Metro's chairman, Wade Cooper says it was young voters that push this across the finish line took ownership. Changing the future for our city, and I'm really proud to see what the next generation has committed us to. There you go. Now. They may change their mind when they get there. First paychecks, But the Twitter and Snapchat Instagram tic tac generation has now agreed to a 25% city property in tight. I don't think they knew that local taxpayers will now be on the hook for 55% of the funding Capital, Metro CEO CEO Randy Clark. He's very excited about this going after those federal dollars. One of the most important things is the local Community, saying they're putting money forward for the local match. The community has spoken, and that goes a long way to getting federal funding. Congratulations there. Mr. Mr Randy Clark is gonna be some serious buyer Remorse this morning. I have a feeling there's a lot of people that air waking up. What did I just do not know what 25% back when we were talking about there, there. Ah, going to solve all these social justice problems, That's what it's going to do. Equity healthcare climate change. No, I everything that the young people learn. While they're at the University of Texas. What starts here changes the world That's right, and you continue to prop up the U. T. And I think that yes, there is that element that element of voters there that that sector and then there's some, I promise you that I had no idea what that this man of 25 right or those that just can't get their head around. What a 25% tax increase is, I think this is wonderfully note. That mean this is wonderful. This is great. This will be this will be the single thing that flips Austin, Texas back to being a more conservative city. It might be. It might be. Maybe maybe maybe this is Ah, maybe 10 20 years from now. But 10 years from now, those those young people who try to start a business and can't because the tax is so high. You try to buy a house and they can't because the taxes are so damn high. They'll change their minds. Well, maybe by the time I'm 80, I might have just a couple of years of enjoying something like that. Hopefully, we'll see. We'll see. It would be nice if this just starts. Some momentum in the other direction. And it might it might. You know, this might be what puts it over the edge and Zach enough enough. This has gone too far because this is going to ruin business for so many. It's going to ruin households. In some cases. They're people now that are in Austin this morning. We're having to. Ah, think. Um, I'm going to continue to live here. Am I going to continue to live in this house and I got to continue to live? Ah, And in this this, you know world that I've built here. This life that I've built here. What's gonna happen? Hey, there on line two who we talk into here on the tide of Don show. Who is this? It just went straight to me. Hello. What's your name really wanted David. What's on your mind? Okay, So what does this do for the Greg Abbott freeze on taxes. Well, it's it's an end around is what it is. You know Greg Abbott, you know and the Legislature, The Texas Legislature passed a measure in the last session that require cities to go to the voters. If they want to increase your property taxes more than 3.5%. This is a way around it. They created a whole new taxing body. That's what they did A whole new group. They they worked around it and, ah It's here to stay forever, David. I meant I mean, maybe the whole member when he was all Ah happened Aurore about the defunding of the police, And he said that if you're going to do that, we're going to freeze the taxes. But that doesn't Yeah, well, the way that would work the way that would work, See all property. All taxes are collected by the state and then given back to the cities and the counties where you live, that's how it works. It all goes to the state first. And in regards to the police department. That's how they would have actually keep the money, toe run and manage the police department and then the rest. If that happens if it happens at all, Yeah, you know, I mean, I was saying all along you Noah's faras, that tax increase that if it got above 8% that we'd have to vote on, always said that nobody's going to vote for that. And they came up with a way to do it. And with shiny objects, Lot of shiny objects toys. Yeah, if you will, right. So you're right. It was kind of Ah, kind of a sneaky way to get it done. Yeah, Alright, Jump in here. 51283605 90. Toll free 87759055 to 5 listened. More states apparently have approved making pots and ah and a few other things legal about this, according to a peace vote tally, it looks like South Dakota, Montana, Arizona and New Jersey are about to become the latest states to approve marijuana for recreational use. A mixed bag of responses from these voters in Hoboken could easily be abused. I don't really know if I believe in it, Recreational e. Why make it illegal? When people can get employed taxes can be bestowed on it all four states air, saying you have to be over 21 to use it and pot sales will be taxed. It's not clear yet One sails will begin in those states. Still, NATO fucks news. It is 5 52 here on the tide of Don show that's pretty interesting. Even the magic mushrooms in one state about that. Well, I hope they do it here someday. I'm not magic mushrooms. No, I'm not going by. But, you know, I think I think they could make some good money with their way right now. We've gotta look for sources of income anywhere. We can look for it. Right? So, so I'm going to keep an open mind about it. Sure. Why not? Yeah. The whole financial picture just changed for us here.

"Thank you. You know you're absolutely right. Beth, and I appreciate your call. There's no doubt about it. It's going to make the city more unaffordable. It'll do exactly what I say. It'll do the opposite opposite what their goals are. Maybe this is their goal. Maybe this is their gold, a gentrifying neighborhoods to increase property values to get more tax dollars on the city rolls. Right? Maybe that is their ultimate goal. Maybe it's all smoke and mirrors, and they really don't care. About your historic neighborhood. Well, listen. Ah, that's that's his. That's good as anything that I can come up with. I can't think because for the life of me Ah, Todd, I have never heard anybody. I we haven't heard from anybody on the show. No one has come on this show. No one is called Nothing who said we love properly? And here's why. Other than a politician on the politician or Randy Clark in capital that's not no We are no concern. Commuter, No. No engineering expert or anything? No, And also we haven't heard that much from them. We've had Randy Clark on a few times, but it's been a while and and so I just I just don't get the sense that there's any kind of moment. I'm behind this thing. I really don't. I mean, maybe you're right. Maybe at Austin City Hall on your right this over the past few months, The City Council has done so many things to pull people out of the shadows to come voted and let their voices be heard. In fact, the Austin City Council Public Safety Committee, they will be taking a hard look at the 900 calls that police officers are responding to and there's no shortage of complaints about people experiencing homelessness, especially since You know, they became more visible at the end of Ah, ban on public camping. But the numbers of Austin police revealed the homeless are not a big threat to the general public. According to the story from K I. CBS Austin this morning. Another research finds that 14% of violent crime in the city involved someone who was homeless. But the police reports described most that as you know, most of that, as homeless on homeless in less than 3% of violent crime in Austin had a homeless suspect. In a non homeless victim, according to the story. Here. It's CBS Austin dot com. Okay, well, we shouldn't worry about it. I guess so. I mean, what's What's the difference? I mean, homeless on homeless or or are, you know homeless, committed crimes to crime? This crime homed. Crime is crime is crime and you want to stop no matter if they own a home or not, it needs to be counted. Either way today, the Public Safety Committee they'll focus on public safety issues related to homelessness, among other things, and they're looking at mental health services is a way to reduce A number of calls that police respond to involving people who are homeless. Also, people who are not now the city says an analysis of recent 900 calls found 41% were coded as priority three. Meaning life or property. We're not at immediate risk. Now they're using the data to decide whether some calls the police officers current respond to should be handled by other city services such as mental health. First responders instead of police song. Yeah, Yeah, well, anyway, they spend this It's it's still the crime is getting worse in the city Bottom line. There's no doubt about it now. I think maybe in some ways were more aware of crime. Whether it's been committed by the homeless or not worm or where it I think because of social media, because of you know all the new security measures that we have, like ring cameras and the nextdoor app and all that we know about it. We know when it's going on. And we know quickly so I don't know Is there how big the uptick is versed versus just are Overall awareness. I don't know what the story is not about an uptick in crime. It's about who was going to respond to calls involving the homeless. Yes, and the Public Safety Commission wants to pull that away in many regards from police and handed over to mental health first responders instead. Well, we'd love to get your reaction and you could jump in here at 51283605 90. Todd and don show I was talking to my friend Brad. He's the owner and operator of Zero rez. They're.

"Issues are longstanding equity issues community and this program has been delivered tons of great jobs with the next decades for frosty nights. I'll leave the politics to the elected officials. But, you know, now, more than ever, I think we have to come to a conclusion that people aren't there demanding more action less time. Trying to get something done. There you go. That's Randy Clark, the capital, Metro C e o d. Did he convince you to vote? Yes. No, no. I did not know He didn't know I would be curious to go do a man on the street and just ask people as they come by. What do you think of proper? I have a lot of people have a feeling A lot of people would not know what property is, and they're probably not that second surge. May it is on the ballot. And and that's why we're here to inform the folks please. Young is with voices of Austin. Is a terrible time to be raising taxes by almost 25%, which is a largest city tax increase that we confined, obsessed. Damn broken 1900 on why I got a reason. Electric utility so well over 100 years, uh, was the pandemic with the old Increasingly out of work again, Uh, with people struggling to pay rent and obey their mortgage, Andi meet necessities. I think this is a ridiculous time to ask them to increase their Jackson's back. All but about 25% s So Paek Young. They're from voices of Austin talking with my fox Austin TBC. Yeah. Just He basically says it's bad timing. It sure is. And I've been saying that all along from the very beginning I'm in, and I'm even more stunned now that that I think about this what what is going on? Can they Can they really be that out of touch with the people of Boston? They're talking about having to you know, they passed money to t give the musicians they know that. I guess they know the economic situation here, and also we got businesses closing left and right. Yet. They're trying to pass that bullet. What is this? I hear you agree. I think it's a bad time. But if we weren't going through this pandemic, and we have this economic downturn, would you support project Connect? No, no, no. You hear you don't like anything, You know there's nothing. Listen, There's one thing for sure. I mean before the pandemic, it was either homeless issue or traffic congestion. There was a problem in this city. Always at the top of every survey out there. What would you do to, you know, improve traffic flow? Well, tell you what I think We need to look closer at continuing this. This work at home situation that we have that a lot of people were doing right now. The Austin needs toe really take a serious look at that and see what they what war? Encourage more of encourage more of it For those that it makes sense to do so, here's pack Young again from voices of Austin. So don't think that master hands it is any kind of wave of the future. There is a study by the Central Texas Mobility Authority that basically says that all projections are there after this year, and hopefully this pendant. Well, it will be beyond come to any end was what some kind of vaccine That they're gonna be more people working from home permanently, then will be reduced in traffic. Because of this system. The system claims that he won't very effect. Maximo 5%. We've seen studies from the other said the number would be less than 1% Mobility Authority says that we will be reducing traffic by 20 to 40% people. Assembly won't be going to the office animal. So we think this is this is real. This is technology and family rallied in the mid 20 s essentially And frankly, it's ridiculous in that much money on these trains were not those mass transit. But we thank you for the time being the best way to do that has been money on first last justice. There you go. Now There's actually four train lines. A cz part of this project. Connect if you vote Yes..

I. S. D. does not have a nurse on every campus that's impossible we did that's simple what did have schools did when I was growing other think about it for a minute we have an incredible nurse shortage of the state so how can we provide a nurse on every can't miss McGill from first grade all the way through right but today it was a different time there were far less schools in Austin and then yeah right we have a nursing shortage so I guess is the next best thing but they can only do so much through a television screen through a camera there's gonna be a point where what are your needs to have some hands on here they're not gonna be doing dental work right through a video chat right get the Sniffles got the flow it's probably strapless test so it'll be based on symptoms mostly in and I'm sure as far as allies stick your head the camera there yeah that's life yeah yeah it's pretty obvious stuff it's pretty easy stuff just like your nurse did when you were in some room yeah this is they're they're basically responding to parents who while last year learn the fact that we don't have a nurse in every campus yeah they did know that some people like you just assumed we did think about that a nurse is expensive what's the job pay sixty seven eight hundred thousand dollars in some hospital maybe more for some nurses I just don't see at school district being able to for that at every campus right I would be rather expensive now urgent care kids it was highlighted in April of twenty nineteen Austin's business journal feature at the time the company had a two hundred team members with plans to grow by seventy five percent over the next eighteen months and for the twenty nineteen twenty eight school year the company provided virtual pediatric care for the el Paso Independent School District they got about seventy thousand students eighty two campuses we have many more the co founder of urgent care Kevin Pearce Brian white both our finance degree from the McCombs school of business here at the university of Texas well it's going to I'm sure there are a lot of they're they're they are probably going to see a lot of students that in some cases maybe haven't seen a doctor in a very long time that should have you know in may be Purcell Miller it'll get him off on a better healthier track it'll it it'll be all kinds of situations but is there a downside to this I'm trying to think of one of the idea of a third party providing all this care there's going to be an incentive for them to see more kids yeah and once the kids catch wind of that they're all going to be sick I gotta go see the telly Dr I gotta go at miss Crabtree I got to leave class I got to go see the telly doctor the line's going to be along the like crazy ask because this urgent care for kids they want to see as many kids as they can so they can build insurance company I mean are you gonna have the kid who's a hypochondriac this going to be you know in there every other day my stomach hurts my ear hurts you know what their mom will the hypochondriac mom right right right when you get there go to the nurse only time I ever went to see the nurse was when I got hit in the head with a baseball bat Herman god rest his soul and because I was standing right next to him on a it at home plate because I was day dreaming and he just be me right about my I split my head wide open right yeah I think it's alright and the rest is history you go David is on the tide of don show David what's on your mind good morning yeah sure so are these people that work minimum wage jobs want fourteen dollars an hour yeah okay well let's let's use little logic here there are more jobs are working that is a starting point in the work force if you want like the previous caller said if you want to make a career out of fast food you may poor life decisions okay I'm a good example I started out cleaning job sites up in Rockledge for three dollars fifty cents an hour yeah you're tough guy I decided I was going to go to trade school in our trade school got a job licensed a man Palmer yeah there's no doubt about it there's a way to dig out of that minimum wage you know career there's no doubt about it choosing that kind of career minimum wage is probably not the best choice also going to create some additional options for you but I have no problem maybe he does I have no problem with somebody asking for more money no absolutely not Todd.

"Yeah he get anti right Randy Clark oz Guinness che on it's just wonderful to have such a in a plea of of leaders in faith to talk to about all these things that your book we just talking about it's called modern day apostles and you're explaining this idea of what it is to be an apostle so you said there twelve we always think of the twelve Brian possibles and they are to be honored and there will no no replacement for those apostles but we see in scripture all these other people call apostles like the apostle Paul were not part of the original twelve course James the brother of Jesus becomes the presiding apostle by acts fifteen in Jerusalem and the list goes on I mean obscure apostles like a drowning consent Judea and Romans chapter sixteen so I believe a fusion for Levin is a key passage when he has said he gave some to be apostles not everyone some to be apostles some to be prophets some to be evangelists pastors teacher success until we come to the unity of faith until the full measure of the stature of Christ to a mature man now we're not there yet until we come to that kind of maturity and unity we will always need apostles prophets evangelists pastors and teachers but unfortunately we've highlighted primarily the pastoral ministry maybe the evangelists like Billy Graham but you don't talk about profits and apostle show my book I share from church history how that came about through the reformation but also through the whole secessionist movement of B. B. Warfield and Princeton University and a lot of people don't believe that gives our for today also don't believe that apostles of profits but we see it as a ministry is a function that is still above a call for today it's so interesting to me how they're you know when we talk about these so called cessation this it seems to me a little bit their doctrine strikes me as a little bit contrived and it doesn't meet you know occam's razor it sort of looks like they've worked hard to get there but that common sense would say no we we still have healing today we have many examples of healing today we have many examples of all these kinds of things and just because we have the canon of scripture the sacred scripture to to make a doctrine that says once that happened all these things go away it always has struck me as as far fetched not just wrong but it it it it seems far fetched and I understand their arguments and they make many good arguments but so many of us have observed these hearings with our own eyes but here Jesus himself call Sam apostolic owes a great word send out one I mean think about it he could use the term profit and they would understood that language because its rat is your profits so when it comes down from the mountain acts of men and Luke six first twelve and then first thirteen he selects twelve and calls them apostles actually that was an offensive title because the Roman shoes were apostles grown up as you know as a conquered they want to make sure that the Roman law was a bait Roman culture was a power and the one to enforce that was an apostle sent out by the by Caesar to enforce Roman culture and he was either military person of a general or an admiral or governor like Pontius pilot so what Jesus is saying I also have a kingdom and I also have a kingdom culture and I'm one Jude to bring about not only my word but bring about heaven to earth and that's why I'm calling you apostles and so is a very strategic initially offensive word because you know they don't want to be associated with from the head of the Romans but Jesus use a secular terminology just like he did with the word church efficacy up is a secular term you know goes all the way back to Athens when they had a a legislative body to determine loss for their nation and so god says you're in my uncle CM but also you call some to be apostles and I believe a Paul Scholes we're not talking about a titles not like a business card I don't know never been called apostle chair it's like that but as a function and is part of your identity if god has called you if you're you know you're a child of god brawl kings and priests but if god called to be a pastor that's part of your identity of his call you'll be a profit that sure part of your identity and if he's if he's called you to be an apostle that's your identity as well the reason why that is so important is because your identity determines your destiny once you realize what you're calling as and helps you with your job description and how to store the calling of fulfill your destiny in god and so what does it mean to to have an apostolic office or an apostolic calling on your life what is that look like well first of all I I share my book thirty characteristics of an apostle of some other a lot of course I talk about you know Christ like character your servant leader but essentially you're to bring heavens culture to earth bring transformation so where there's injustice were to bring about justice so that's why the kingdom of god is not meat or drink but his righteousness peace and joy of the Holy Spirit and the word righteousness doesn't just mean computer righteousness are positional righteousness image just as we're to bring justice because heaven on earth this just and so that's why I believe in if I could be bold I believe you may be a market place apostle and the reason why I say that because I see you changing culture for not just winning souls you really want to see a transformation of society to reflect heaven and that's what apostles to their wired to do that and so is not just you know planning churches which has been the traditional understanding of parcels I was really leading other leaders to bring about the transformation or what we call the disciple of a nation that's so fascinating I mean it's important we understand what the Bible says and I'm always fascinated with folks like you because you you're you're teaching us things that we we really haven't heard and you kind of wonder why when we go through the centuries without people who in the past you know go going back of the past entries would you say have an apostolic calling particularly how you see it everywhere for example John Wesley was incredible apostle yes he was an evangelist yes but do you know he would feel was the adventures like and the John or of Billy Graham of course he was like the first bill Graham thousand thirty thousand at a time but Wesley had it these what we call class meetings that end up becoming the United Methodist Church and became a one time the largest denomination in the world yeah a process and I should say and so we see how to this day the United Methodist Church not in America buddy in Africa is just full of life and they're they're the ones who are speaking out against same sex marriage or gay priest being ordained the United States wants to do it but thank god for the reliable in Africa rates all those homophobic Africans year we're going to be right back is just wonderful for final segment folks don't go away che on is here

"Awake past the technology. We have been multi Flint solution to what we're gonna do. That's Randy Clark, the CEO of capital metro speaking with cave you now he also talked about and hinted that capital metro is working towards a twenty twenty bond package for voters to consider probably in November of twenty twenty. And he wanted to say how much that would be. But I just ballpark in at least a billion dollars. I mean how much does it cost to set up a train? Right. Billions and it costs millions and millions for these bike lanes as well. I listen, I don't have a problem at all with having choices. Yeah. That's a good idea. That's that's responsible productive thing. That's going to push us in the future. No doubt about it. Bike lanes should. Would be no aspect of this whatsoever. They've spent millions on these bike lanes millions and millions and millions given what they have spent given the amount that we have of them. They're not being used the only thing they're being used now for or scooters, at least at least that's going on. At least the scooters are using them. Don't say the word bicycle in a lot of people are using scooters. And I wonder why would we need to have a study how many disagree with Randy Clark, the when he'd more choices? No. I just said that like, I said choices. But everything you're saying now is totally flying in the face of what you agree with. No. You don't know you want more choices. But you don't want more choices. No. I don't want bicycles to be considered. How about train bicycles are fun? If you. Yeah train. Yeah. We do need trench. We do carpool lane. When toll toll lanes that kind of thing. Listen, I'm not gonna ever argue about anything that has to do with cars and asphalt. Yes. Fine. Fine, fine, fine. Tar everything just get toll roads up and running out and say that every at all I'm just saying mostly asphalt. But I I need to stop. They need to stop talking about bicycles. There. There's there's proof is there as far as the millions that they have spent on this new stretch of bike lanes that goes over Luke three sixty that multimillion dollar bridge has going at let's let me finish talking. I know you're impatient. Wouldn't be right now. But I'm this is something say a word, I'm passionate about this. What you're about to go to something else? This is something I'm passionate about this is a tremendous waste of money. Go out look at this bridge over three sixty look at this massive this massive project. They did between to ninety and in mope. Doc in Oak Hill that goes all the way down to Selkirk park. No one is using it. I see it every single day. Stop with the talk about bicycles. They're fun. Oh, they are a ton of fun though. Scooters are fun. I would love to see we need to have a study about the scooters. How many people are using the scooters because they have to get two point eight to point B versus. Hey, this is cool. This is fun. That's not what I'm concerned about. I'm concerned about. Solutions that make sense solutions that are actually solutions that that's what I meant. I give me some idea. Listen, I'm not I'm not opposed to train. I'm not opposed to trains by the time after we take care of the problem with the roads, the roads should still be priority. Number one. Also, maybe getting people on the buses using the buses. Yeah. I know they're times a day when it is full that they tell me I hear rumors that there are times a day when when the buses are actually full how about full all day long. How about a productive bus system using our current roads? Make the most of what we currently have. And then we'll look at trains. Let's max out what we have where we cannot go any further with what we have. Then let's look at trains. You don't think we're maxed out right now? We got a lot of grit because there's still possibilities out there when we have exhausted all possibilities, all possibilities. Then let's look at a spending billions and billions on trains because we have nowhere else to go. Yeah. But but the bicycle where would you put a train? What would you put a train if you could right now? Well, first of all people keep talking we've got to have a train to the airport gotta have a Chinese airport. Now, I don't understand that at all people are getting to the people that need to get to their getting to the airport. And if you're gonna use a try and put it to put it out in my neck of the woods, for example, there no train options were they only train option right now. If you live in Leander and you live along the stretch downtown. That's it. Very small amount of input a train station into Wyan. Okay. Obviously if casino exactly right next to the shot a casino. But this bicycle conversation is an I maybe I sound like a broken record. But it just got up Cerdan it just got absurd during that roundtable discussion. It just got ridiculous and it needs to stop because it's our money, and I don't want to see our money spent any more in that direction. All right. It doesn't make a difference. Bicycles will never make a difference in our transportation flow ever, ever, not on any day. Will it make a difference in our traffic club attitude? That's for sure. Is that the problem? I attitude. Okay. All right. Well, I'm done. I'm done. I opened the Florida. You know, then I can. Okay. Yes. Right. Marky. Mark you on the Don prior program. Yes. Thank you. Prior program. Thank you for having me on yet. Could have. Hey, I never only choice. I love the idea of choice. The only choices make a difference is choices of more than that. I can drive them. I've been here in Austin, many years all the major semiconductor companies, there's never transportation to places and right now, I can't take the train to see and even get to see park how we're gonna get down fourteen thirty one they're joking. Just felt more rose trains have never designed to get you to exactly where you want to go. Of course, not. But where's the bus? That takes me. You know, do I spend another forty five minutes get off the bus to see your parking even to stop its eagle while you have to well, cedar park is not in the capital taxing district. I know Jimmy Flanagan the mayor of cedar park would love for it to be. But that's something in the future show. You live you live in cedar park. No on Winston moped. It's impossible to understand Sita. Partly Leander is part of the capital metro taxing district secret. What's that? How does that work in the city? The voters have cedar park got out of the taxing district. They don't wanna pay more in taxes. They don't need a bus service in their city the people that live there probably because they don't trust the bus pass. No metro, I feel I know you can't get anywhere. I got you. I got you Mark. Thank you, man. I appreciate it. All right jump in here at five one two eight three six zero five ninety toll free eight seven seven five nine zero five five to have problem with choices choices his great. That's a smart responsible thing to do. But make it let's have choices that make sense. Let's have choices that will make a difference not bicycles for God's sakes. And you say healthy combination of more asphalt's trains, of course, and make them toll road make the most of this bus system, make make the bus system something where even I will go. Hey, I think I'll take the ball. You never take the bus. Well, let's just play long. You would never play law. But be honest, you are not someone who would ever write a capital natural. I don't need you've ever been on. You've never been on. There's no bus options that that that make any sense for my life out the option is you're a talk show host and to give you an experienced to talk about on the radio. Why would I want to do that? I don't have. I don't want to take the time to do that. I don't know check the time to ride the bus to wear to what go get on a bus for the sake of getting on the bus, my time for you just for the sake of having experienced that way. You can talk about it. There's. I can tell you right now. What I'll be talking about us. How damn long it took me to get to work on the damn bus. Yeah. That's what I would be talking about the way Friday. Let's remind everybody it's bike to work Friday. Correct. So remember to do that seven forty five check on traffic. Here's melinda.

Why are we making them have insurance when they run into cars, and I hear what you're saying road.

Yeah, they spoke to the city council yesterday, which is considering giving tax dot three point three million dollars to help further this project along the Wii oak kill has been a mess for a long time knows that and only getting worse. Hey, well, city council member Lashley pulled she voted against using Austin money on this project using it is example of thirty-five construction ourselves out of congestion doesn't work. Then why does building ourselves out of congestion working ocal building ourselves out of congestion doesn't work? She says no more lane. Adding more lanes is not gonna fix things. Okay. What will please, please? I know they want us out of our cars. And I guess that's the thing. They just don't want to fix it. So we will go the hell with it. We can't drive now. Her solution is to not fix any road. Right. And you'll get so sick and tired of the congestion. Yes. You'll get on. Capital metro bus. That's it. I'll get out of the car. I'll get on a scooter, whatever the inter bus, whatever they it's really ridiculous. What she's saying? Clearly, she has not sat in that traffic before. Clearly, she has not a clue clearly she's not gone out there. Any even observed the situation out there. I'm sure she hasn't. She loves it. It's working for. Yeah. She loves it. It's perfect. Absolutely anything to make it more difficult for cars is what Leslie Poole one. Well, I'll tell you what what's your what you'll be doing? Then if you don't want to do anything about it is you're creating a very dangerous situation. Actually, ultimately, it's a very traffic that does not move. It's a very dangerous situation. It's really a dumb thing that she just said there is a dumb thing to ignore it. It hurts business. It does hurt business which hurts the economy. Yes. Which means she can't get tax revenue to pay paint, rainbows, a strong Crosswalks and bike lawn and on and on there's nothing positive that comes out of that situation. What you're saying what when you say that we should do nothing about it. It's a really dumb thing. You make yourself look dumb. Now, the central Texas regional ability at thirty. They now have permission from the state transportation commission to add totaling lanes. One Eighty-three talking about from that forty five one eighty three six twenty interchange near near the lake line mall. So the toll roads. Would begin right there. Two in each direction. This all the way down one eighty three to mo- pack now tech stocks Ben Asher says they'll be also adding some general use lanes and additional free lane on each side. The estimated project costs are just over five hundred million dollars with the army's contribution of approximately three hundred ninety six million and tech stock contribution of approximately one hundred and four million. I need to correct myself. I keep saying they're going to add an additional free lane. No lane is free tax dollars will be used to build it. You just want not have to pay a higher tax to us. Exactly now. Although the commission was hesitant to approve this toll project Commissioner said enough support of this plan from local lawmakers and city officials was enough to sway them to add some tolling lanes. I hope it at least eases congestion on six twenty for some folks. Yeah. Exactly. And listen. They're all connected. And I don't think it would be unreal. To say that unrealistic to say that it wouldn't help six twenty and maybe even twenty two twenty two for that matter Breese, sixty for that matter as a result of this. That are all connected there the thing I like about this is that it's not by any means a situation where you're forced to use toll lanes to to get from point a debate. You'll have that choice. You'll have a really good choice. There. You have more free lanes. It's a really good idea here. And we've got to have it. Listen, I don't know if the folks over at FOX seven news KTBS. In the newsroom listening right now. But if if you are listening, we're thinking about you because I know you've you've suffered a loss over there in that newsroom that cyclists that was killed hit by capital metro bus late, Monday nights. Anthony, DS longtime employee of FOX seven news of the TV station says DS worked on numerous cast of the years capital. Metro CEO. Randy Clark says he's making sure that the investigation into his death is is very thorough. And it's not clear. Exactly. What factors all of the factors? At least all the details. Have not come come to light yet. Bryce doing exactly what went wrong and happened late at night about ten thirty and a section of the UT campus. He was on a bicycle in coming came may some kind of collision with the bus, and he died there on the scene so hearts and prayers. We're thinking about all the folks over there at FOX seven news KT BC. Anthony, DS longtime employee FOX seven, you know, an interesting thing about this to his family has made the choice to they don't know why this happened. I don't know. Exactly what happened, but they've already chosen to forgive the driver of that bus. They said we're not gonna live with. Hey, we're not going to live with anger and regret. And those things wouldn't bring him back. I'm going to bring him back not gonna change anything who wants to live with anger, and they've chose to forgive that driver. No matter what what what the what the reasons were sounds like it was just a horrible accident. Very well could have an accident. You know, it's it's it could be one of those situations where the marriage of. Vehicles like a bus in a bicycle sometimes or a horrible combination. Yeah. And there you go listen. There was an accident this morning involving a scooter a man riding in electric scooter downtown Austin is now in critical condition. Austin Travis county EMS says the man was rushed to the hospital with a severe brain injury is in critical condition as we speak. Police say he was twenty something was going the wrong direction on the on the frontage road or the wrong direction right there at I thirty five and six street about about one o'clock this morning and hit head on with the car. Yep. And is in critical condition. This morning. Listen, I know that I in my prayers go out to him. And we're we're we will hope the best for him. Hope he pulls through this. I know I've been critical of the scooters from day one. There's no doubt about it. Not probably will be we'll continue. I don't like the fact that they're here. And I think it's a very dumb program. I I really do. But also, we have the fact that no matter what you think of the scooters. This sounds like someone who just really, unfortunately met a very bad decision. To go the wrong way on the front. Neutros a thirty five at one thirty in the morning wearing no helmet. And it's just the potential for disaster is all over that. So no matter what you think of the scooters. This really wasn't the scooters fault. This is someone who made a dumb decision. Yeah. I'm sorry to be that Frank about it. I know that that did you imagine the guy driving the car? Yeah. Got to live with that. And he said, oh, I know you are almost in that situation at one more. Yeah. A couple of points. It is eight twenty eight the Todd and Don show. Listen, I recently learned that you could be spending eighty percent less for your family's medications because the same medication you take.

"That in the wedding Qena. They ran out of wine Mary presents. Hey, they've run out of wine and Jesus like my time has not come. My problem. Yet. You you've brought something to what I what I love about this giant. I love how what he says to marry because it's words at never said that my mother ever, he says dear woman, I've never said that my mom and my entire life. And I'm sitting there thinking the author of that probably made it sound a little more pleasant. I'm thinking he looks at mom. That's really not our problem. This is not even our gig. You know, something along those lines. But the bottom line is is that he says, you know, this is not in the time that I'm supposed to be reforming miracles yet. But yet he did anyway. And so there is a choice. You're right. There is a there's a there's a choice. There's a and so we have to realize that. And so in that moment, you know, kinda when you're and I I I ever had. Whereas at the end of a gun at somebody literally holding to might gun to my head because preaching on the streets. When I was sixteen years old. And even then there was a there was the the piece was so strong that it was almost like unawareness like, I was unaware I sort of knew it. But didn't know it. You know what I mean? It was just it was like God just sort of keeps you in. This this blanket of grace is the only way to scribe it that that you're not. I I wasn't anxious to was fearful even though, you know, might my friend. Randy Clark of you know, what he is. But he's he always introduces me, this is the most fearless man that I've ever known. This is the most fearless. I should stop saying that I said because I feel fear. I feel it like you like everybody else will matter of fact that probably fear feel it even more because I'm putting myself in this crazy places all the time to feel it even more I feel fear. But here's what I've decided as I. Won't yield to that is I'm not. So it's not the piece that you feel is not absent of fear that you feel the piece is just stronger than the fear, and you realize that the piece is God the fears from the enemy, and here's the thing. I believe if you feel fear when it's doing something God wants you to do. Or just something the bible tells you to do you feel fear out? I believe that fears not your fear. I believe it's spirit of the're. And how does spirit of fear manifest, but the feeling of spear? So that what that means? Then is that fear that you feel is a fiery Dr to the enemy, and if you're feeling it it's not because it belongs to you. Because you're not the source of it. It's coming from an outside source. That's why it's called fiery dart it's coming from elsewhere. But because we feel something we think that's who we are. You know, this gets into sexuality with people listening because I feel this way or I'm attractive as way half to that. And what I am Ben. Many people that I reach out to the gay community that I've I've said so much are all your feeling Hugh are all your thoughts. You I mean, if you believe in understand, the the spirit realm, you realize no, not all my thoughts. And feelings are me. Therefore that original thought that you had of that didn't originate from you. That was a fiery dart, and you embrace did issue, and it's not. And so let's pray and cut that off because it's a lie. And so fear is a liar. Fear is a liar. And so the only way that we can take captive is acting the opposite of what we feel. You know, a entrepreneurs do this all the time. You know, they just it's business something that they come up to do. All the said, I still haven't told you the story. He asked me for. I'm sorry. But let me let me back, but, you know, entrepreneurs do this by taking risks and business by you know, every every gone, no, don't go this way, it won't work, and they ignore do it anyway. And then they become crazy successful at it. Because they they they were following sort of nudge, or that sense that gut rather than what the experts are saying, and it's the same with this..
