"Lgbtq women specifically affect queer women. You know it and the thing is once you start digging down those avenues a lot of white women and tap out then so becomes the problem. I think is one of those things where when you hear why people are against. It is always because they're conceding space to two white women. You mean when you think about like why it doesn't work i'm for self-determination and so you say hey. I don't want to be labeled us. I'm never gonna call. Somebody's gonna be called when it comes to that kind of but it's just when you listen to people's reasoning and of course in the has a bunch of patriarchal reasons of i don't wanna be labeled i know damn feminist. You know that kinda shit. There's of course the the the patronizing feminist Trope with a guy who's like i love women 'cause i wanna fuck them. You know that kind of thing and abusing anytime one of those guys is like exposed or turns out to be a fucked up person you got to do. The whole like never trust him and which. I'd never understand any way because that's always a weird thing. 'cause it's like never trust a man who says the feminist at the same time is always the people that are fucked up implying that like yes. Trust me stay. Because i hate you bitches like well. I don't know that essentially just don't trust. Nobody doesn't mean. I get you know but it's always funny make that category specifically dangerous where they are more More there's a higher propensity for them to be fucked up. When i think you know maybe it's probably about the same all around or whatever. Yeah and that does a very hard thing for people to perceive. Because i as far as like feminists feminism rodrigue was kind of more into it than me and was more outspoken than i was for a very long time and we'd had plenty of conversations on this show. I was. Don't don't call me that you know. Don't call me that because it's like once you pick that up all of a sudden you gotta pick up everything else fucking comes within the people like. I don't want the problems that come with it. I don't want you saying that. I'm kissing white women's ass. I don't want juice you. You're saying that. I don't care about certain things like i don't want that i just won't all-women to have the freedom a woman presenting to have the freedom to be whatever you choose to be whatever you want to have children fine.

Sabrina Carpenter Addresses Speculation That ‘Skin’ Is About Olivia Rodrigo

"Last week. We had discussed the whole. Olivia rodrigue driver's license situation with sabrina. And joshua bassett excetera and since then. Sabrina actor released her own song called skin. Before i get into it. Let me just read you. The caption of her instagram. She posted tonight. Sabrina says thank you to everyone who has listened to skin especially those who have opened their minds to lyrically is trying to get across. I wasn't bothered by a few lines in a magnificent song and wrote a distraction. It i was at a tipping point in my life for countless reasons. So i was inspired to do what i usually do to cope right something that i wish i could have told myself in the past people can only get you if you give them the power to and a lot of people were trying to get to me. The song is in calling out one single person some addresses specific situation while other lines address. Plenty of other experiences. I've had this past year. It also shows that many things have actually gotten under my skin. And i'm still learning to knock have other people so much power over my feelings. I know a lot of you struggle with the same thing. I don't want this to become an endless cycle so please don't take this as an opportunity to send more hate anyone's loss of loved you all. Thanks for letting me grow anybody who listened to the song the main courses basically you can try to get under my skin while he's on mine so i mean listen if she's going to say that it wasn't a direct response fine but like. I really liked sabrina carpenter. I think they're both really talented. I just it was so clearly response. In my opinion the only reason it wasn't a response is because the original song had nothing to do with her. That right so confused. Yeah that's what i think. People were so confused about because of your song was really about her relationship with joshua and what went down there with the one line that mentioned sabrina. Basically saying like you're probably with that blonde girl who always made me doubt she so much older than me. she's everything i'm insecure about. That was it. Whereas sabrina song i think at least when you listen to it the first time felt like was directly about her directly addressing. Olivia song so. I don't know i. I really like them both. I was so confused when i first heard it because it felt so misplaced to me. It was like wait a second. Like if i'm being honest nothing as women you ever want other women to be insecure. But let's just cut the bullshit for a second is the guy you're dating has ex girlfriend and that ex-girlfriend publicly says that you make her insecure not that you want that prefers second that's kind of the best compliment you could ever get like. It was so confusing me. There were all these names of like olivia. Rigo call sabrina. Carpenter gorgeous says rita carpenter releases a distract. You

"Give a lot of great talent. The that utilize wonderful Gulf seafood which we have an advantage over most states in you know with Lafayette. It's it's like I said you have so many wonderful casual seafood places and just you know. We're all friends we were together. Try to try to. We all have the common goal of taking care of people in in being able to to help the lives of employees. You know through through sales through Ron and the whole deal and then Restaurant Association is there for us for for that. So that's been that's been great. It's just with the you mentioned the the All and you know the the gas prices and stuff like that even the hub city of Lafayette in healthcare. And even though right now it's hard because of the the doctors can't do these extra extra work right now and that's really see. Take that you throw in on Gaz being down on that people scared and they don't know what you know. They don't know what the future holds horns so there's this hold onto their money they're gonna go to grocery stores and buying cheap dear she whisky and food and and go home and just hunker down until this thing thing opens up and even though we are essential restaurant. That's why we're doing the family meal and IT GIVES PEOPLE OF WAITING. At least they can't get out and dine but the loosening get out up a great high meal not had to do the dishes you enjoy even though so different from being in the actual restaurant and the energy and the music the fun still able to enjoy a little bit of a favorite favorite Takeouts Ernie favorite dishes. You'd recommend take us take out is is is is harder than people think it's You can't refi stake if it goes to the house and it's and it's not good writer so the family meals with design for perfection of of of the meal. So that's why they're working so good. Any anything. Chicken travels well any of our Italian dishes. Lasagna's row easies meatball. They're all easy to take out because of the consistency of stakes. A little harder because of the temperatures and you know veal's hard because it doesn't. It doesn't really stay. Warm gets cold fast so listen different different menu items but there are often passes so I I never had used. Waiter you know I just like going in a place. If I'm going to eat a fine meal I you know now. We can't do it on typical day. I just find that the experience is really. What makes a meal special when you're eating out at your place or some of the other fine places in Lafayette? How are y'all looking ahead to these guidelines and now you tell me you're serving on a task force that Senator Page Cortez you know the legislative task force. It's looking at reopening. What are you all thinking is going to happen? It's going to be doable with tables being spread apart. And it is really the biggest conundrum out there. I was watching some of the national news right. Now that's the big question is the P P P money the payroll protection deal supposed to help. Small businesses put a lot of restaurants are looking at it as you know we have to meet the seventy five percent requirement which is almost impossible to bring back employees number one. We don't have any business to a lot of the morning. Unemployment is just. It's really really hard and you know we're going to have to a lot of restaurants are gonNA need money to do real opened up a new restaurant the by product yet train. Do you know about linens to so many different aspects of our business that once you cut it off like that. It's hard to get back in. I heard predictions yesterday where they're thinking. More than fifty percent of the New Orleans restaurants would not come back Osh. You know it's really you know. Think about wow you know why we go to New Orleans and I don't know how it's going to be in baton rouge or Lafayette but it's hard. I mean you had small I mean so so you have to have six six feet apart between tables and you had to six feet apart at the bar. Fino's in La in Lafayette River won't be as hard bar is huge. It's very long the bartenders state ways. They way away from each other or sixty and outdoor seating which we may have different roles for so in. My dining rooms are so big I can separate tables. Shouldn't be that big of an issue. Look you take a little smaller place that maybe seats you know. Sixty people in very tiny inside. How do you? How do you separate tables six feet apart? They're they're about a foot apart right now and you only have so many. So it's it's there's a lot we had to discuss the big thing. Is I tell you just by talking to a bunch of my friends especially girls. Don't WanNa wear masks and restaurants and they don't want their server wear masks which I understand number one. You have to eat drank. You have to you know you're you're using your mouth. You have to listen to you surgery. You know that's GonNa be a big. That's going to be a big issue. It's not fun it's the one that's the worst thing where people will be like. Why let restaurants open and you have to work mass? Where we understand that the the viral thing but I think the only way really Janet until they can get the FDA approved antibody test testing. That's the only way I think restaurants will really be able to open with some confidence. Well we could say the Had the Sorority added in the people that can go out to eat and all that. That's the only really really see because because all they have they implement all those rules laws insane which would figure it out. I don't know how much how much actually be able to do. You know we do a lot of private parties in Baton Rouge so you can't have more than ten people. Most of my private parties are twenty or thirty people to hop between the tables and yeah. It's a social gathering and it's GonNa be it's GonNa be it's GonNa be a struggle. There's no doubt about it but you know we have. We have to make it work because that's who we are in this Task Force. Ruffin that you were telling me about senator. Cortez it's all different industries right. It's not just has your different businesses one of the only restaurant tours actually on them on the task force. It's yeah car dealers petrochemical Owen. You guys from from all over the the surface. Oh that's why I'm looking forward to to have put my input in it because you know I'm I'm going to be representing the largest employer in the state when it comes to non non governmental restaurants. That's reemploy more than anybody task. You two are you able to get seafood like I. I've talked to Jim Dawson Frank. Randle and others in the seafood's out there but with the market being off. Are you able? You've been able to get suppliers to get your. What would the little we need? The thing is is. We're not selling bulk. Like like Franken him with the ball crawfish and all that. We're just doing it to go food so we're not using up a whole lot. The once we open up in demand comes unless they had employed the seafood's out there. It's just getting the people to catch it and sell it and all that but it's setting like I went over to Randall's bringing frank back some albums. He had loaned me because we get interviewed and he wanted to show me all his. You know the pass things he had done. One of the fishermen had like five thousand pounds of I don't know if it was snap herbs some some really great seafood and he didn't have any place to put it like it was there was there was no market nowhere to go and I think frank helped helped him. Some people could by five or ten pounds and drive through that but I just thought how many people was this affecting down the chain from you saw the trip. The trickle down effect is crazy. Goes all over the place? And that's that's going to be the hardest part is you know we're GonNa want to get back into business we're GONNA want sales people coming out but other people who have money to to come out and die where places celebration. It's GonNa be people looking to do birthdays from a month ago. Anniversaries from a month ago and come out and celebrate. We'll do a little bit of that and they can have special nights but the consistency of you know getting out there doing business. You know it's GonNa take time it's just gonNA wrong and that we're all GonNa that's why we need the help from the government Own Whoever to to get us back on our feet and not just in a in a in a payroll plan. But we're GONNA need some money to reopen two by two byproduct to we were forced to shutdown. Were our our our our cash flow completely. Got Shut off for us to. Yeah even the most conservative people. I think the government does have a place that may not agree on everything. But we can't do this ourselves. I mean there's a lot of it up to the banks. Would big banks struggled this would? This is loans raw the small ones. Iberia was fantastic. You know they had the most of their stuff that they were incredible. You know so. It's it's we used to be with chase and we switch in. God we would probably still with chase guy knows where we'd be so it's GonNa it's GonNa be a struggle for everybody you know. Open up this. This other money is again. That's that tiki money. That really doesn't help our industry. Our industry is going to need. You know a nationwide maybe worldwide a nationwide. Russia industry is going to need grants. They're gonNA need. We're GONNA need money to all the soul food. All the you know just reopening getting people back to work training all that stuff you know we number one. We want to pay our people. Which would the people to? We're GONNA reopen and they're going to have a job we got to be able to run our business and you don't have any money to to buy seafood. We'll be able to sell it or haven't been able to pay your rent or your note for a few months. Yeah well is there anything that any advised or anything you want to share as Ricardo come into conclusion? Anything that we didn't discuss. Now you know. The thing is getting on supporting local local restaurants local businesses. That are in operation. Even though we're not able to dine in continue to do take out at the places that are offering it. I don't know how many right now. In Lafayette of stopped or continued a lot of them switched over to the ball raw fish. We haven't staying with our menu and trying to support the community that way just supporting the local restaurants in because of because we. We can't get through this on the plate. The the people that can't get through this because catch and just lack of desire. They're just going to close down. You can have a lot of a lot of people out of jobs you know is continuing to get it back so culture gone all. Yeah well thank you so much. I want to end on a very positive note and I wanted to share something. I read about you in bet you made with your friend Todd Graves. I hope this is accurate. But I was doing background research and I saw that you've got about Lsu doing well last season you WanNa talk about that. You bet money because we were we were we were in Las Vegas for a A real estate convention. And you know todd always wants to was in. May So todd said go and this make some bets so we win this when a Great Sports Book. I forget which hotel we were. I wish we were in Caesar's something but we were about to leave so I went down and I put thousand dollars on the saints to win the Super Bowl a thousand dollars on Lsu to win a national championship. And I was looking at one thousand dollars on. Joe Burrowed when the Heisman and for some reason they could at this one place. They didn't have that up. Although it was available it was two hundred to one. And and Made the too bad. But I couldn't find out I had to go to Caesar's to make the other one. We were leaving and I had to get back. I had this thing so I thought I'd made it in did not have been two hundred thousand dollar is when we end up winning. Lsu which was twenty four to one one twenty four thousand and don't think Joe Osha on chose a charity To give it to that we wanted to to donate so it was just a fun deal for. I believe me I would love to cap the twenty four thousand split it but when your best friend's a billionaire young it's a lot easier for him just as you know. Let's give it a charity. Which was my idea anyway. So you have friends like that she's roughing Rodrigue. I WanNa thank you so much for Again being so patient with me you know you couldn't tell from your voice but I had a little difficulty at the beginning and I love doing this podcast and I really have great appreciation for people that helped me recorded and mixed because it's it's not that it's hard but it's just not the you know the the top thing my skill set so i WanNa thank you people that help make this podcast possible.

"I wanted to look back on the history of Chameleon Boulevard since you're situated there. I don't know if you're familiar with all the sped Back in nineteen fifty to the city of Lafayette recognized. That Pin Hook Road. Couldn't handle all of the traffic. The next twenty nine years feasability studies were conducted to determine the best placement of a grudge over the Romanian to effectively move traffic. And I can tell you as an aside when I moved here in eighty three I. I couldn't figure out how to get around laugh so finally just to share this with you. In nineteen eighty-one there was a route study by domain Zaba own associates recommending the Camelia Boulevard route on August fourth a bond issue which included the Chameleon Boulevard extension was voted and approved on but then a citizens group called save. Our subdivision was formed to oppose the construction on March eighteenth. Nineteen eighty-three mayor. Douglas Strap announced his recommendation to the city council. That quote we construct a four lane river crossing at the table of art on the south side of Lafayette so environmental and Engineering Studies were done citizens. Continue to protest In one thousand nine hundred five the Camilla Boulevard project was included in a bond referendum and approved. Lafayette voters fast forward to Nineteen ninety-three alternatives. Were still being looked at but in April of ninety three the report recommended construction and more environmental assessments were done in nineteen ninety. Six Lafayette Consolidated Council adopted a resolution directing that the committee boulevard bridge become a top priority in ninety nine and January contractors began moving homes from the corridor in two thousand one in August. The contract for construction of bridge and the section of Roadway between settlers trace boulevard and Cambridge. Dry was awarded in on September eighth two thousand three a ribbon. Cutting ceremony was held to declare the bridge officially open. So you probably were not aware of all of us not being you know in the Lafayette area but this was a major controversy. And right where you're situated in. Once it opened people just went. Oh this is nice you know. Yeah so you're situated right there in the middle of a great area of Lafayette and yet I know things have kind of come to a halt as far as dining in and the whole restaurant industry if we can pick back up our conversation about what's going on nail. Yeah that was. We actually did a ribbon. Cutting the on the tenth anniversary two in fourteen at the restaurant to to to to celebrate the the bridge which has just been huge for Local Denison in Lafayette Transit and opening up. Wait easier ways to get to young's Ville two just anywhere get anywhere and all the other places that just exploded so it was the biggest thing I think ever happened yet looking back how it was a to to to where it is now is river ranch perception when we first got there was you know it. It's the best community or mixed development. Whatever they call it. I've I've ever been in still today going around country in different places. I'm like just blown away by the way they built. It is just perfectly done and Steve. The architect and Robert Gaggle right here. It's the quality safe. It's it's it's just really well done so in. Every body told us the best location you know anywhere by the river and as we were lucky enough to to buy a coup to Sean New Orleans. Out and twenty thousand out to be. I think they will. They will they went. Does this for like nine months. Gosh when they knew they read the writing on the wall and and being that the Donald Link was a friend and In in his father in law's would come the restaurant Baton Rouge. They knew that we would be able to to make it work so we bought by the mom out and it was a huge success. Difference if you can touch on that what did you bring? You know to turn that around. What was it that well Rodrick brought it out? We'll restaurants restaurants differ so many different ways personality. Wise culture will. What's your message? What are you? What are you trying to achieve? And we headed down rouge with something Special Ed With Lsu you know. The local ties the energy that we brought music The lie all the all the things that that that I brought all the are the intangibles or the outside of the food. It's more about the energy in the fun. And the lighting the way we set up tables and the way we set up a private parties in US. Energizing the place and we brought. We brought that to a place that just whether they're the way looked at it was. It was all about the food shop driven. They WanNa Kinda hippie kind of place and just you know you have to. You have to. You have to match the community. That just didn't did not do that. They didn't have a good friendship with with the community. You really have to distinguish yourself. Do you know every town has has multiple different restaurants. You have so many places you go you see one time. I laugh yet. It's different as were I noticed is the most restaurants or casual dining Many white tablecloth restaurants. And that's where we are but we'll white tablecloth but we're also fun and and kind of kind of a casual fund fine dining if you WANNA call it which I knew there was a niche for in Lafayette people. Were looking for a place to call their own. Stephanie Cox such a great job at Ala Fonda in history of of their barber their bar so small you know is just. It's it's it's you know. People were looking for a place to meet with large watch parties and we hit that. We hit that niche and it was It was fun because of the people that I knew in the beginning that we would. You know hurt. Their does is like Charlie. Good to the Charlie. Jeez it but he reached out and I became what I did from a from a marketing standpoint because when I bought it in nothing was January. We didn't open till may look between January and May I lived in Lafayette. You know I basically you've got an apartment. And when every and let people went to charity events what to political events met every new a lot of people already for my connections and we had a following from are bad restaurant but it was it was really It was really just kind of a an easy transition for me because from tip and I have the the Cajun heritage and it was it was fun and the grand opening was huge in the next few years until the gas. Kinda take a little bit Just I don't know of a restaurant that had had an opening that anywhere. I've never seen anything like it. So but the good thing. Is You know even with a with a struggling industry when you find good managers Like I have with Christmas Lotto Greg Harmon Katie. Gd's and Legionella Chefs Estevan. And James.

"Help you send some messages to get whatever you want accomplished. And right now will is on the phone, and what he wants accomplished is for his mom to stop being so horny when she comes. Mom comes visit him from time to time. And she brings her new boyfriend. The guy's name is Rodrigo. And I guess every time she's come to visit. They've been a little loud at night. And will wants to ask her to keep it down because she's coming to visit this weekend. So she sent a text to his mom, and it said, I'm really excited for you. And Rodrigue go to visit. But I have sort of a weird question. And I don't know how to ask you. We're just trying to get him started and ease into the conversation of asking his mom to not be so loud in the bedroom. Will has she responded yet? Yeah. She responded you sound so defeated already have the entire time. Well, but what did she say? She said, hey, sweetie. We can't wait don't worry about weird I wiped your, but nothing that typical. Okay. What's coming? So at least now you've got it out of the way that you have a weird question to ask. So now, I think it's time for you to tell your mom to keep it down. No, you don't just rip the band aid off because you don't wanna make it awkward. I know that we've started off with like a weird request. Is there any way you could paint it as like we just had visitors over, and you won't believe what I heard coming from the other room. Sure that that doesn't happen when you're here. Way to go. Why are you sitting there listening to them thinking about your mom? I will say I like we were going where when it's like, a the walls are very thin. Maybe not now. But that's a good way to say. You guys are just trying not to put the blame on her. Yeah. She's doing. The blame is on her. And he's the civically wants to ask her not to do it. I hate being passive aggressive. But I think that this is one situation where it calls for it. We've always been you know, kinda straight to the point. So maybe just get to the point on this matter. What you say, let's at least start out with. Okay, we're all adults here or something. No, you're never an adult to your mom art ever. She was just talking about wiping his. But I'm just what you say is I'm really happy for you and your relationship, you turn it into a positive spin. But I don't need to know everything about it. If you know what I mean that opens up to a lot of back and forth. I like that though. I'm really happy about your relationship. But can I be honest last time, you guys were here, you were very loud in the bedroom at night, and we could hear you know, you don't need to put at night. They she knows. Idiot. What do you think? Well, I just want to make this as quick as possible. I don't want him to be Texan about this. I'll be going back and forth like hinting at it. And then it's like fifty later, and you're like, okay stop. So why don't you just try that be like, hey, I'm really glad that you're happy. But the last couple of times you've been here, you are kinda allowed in the bedroom. So if you could maybe aware of that cool that sounds good. Just the last time you were here, you were very loud in the bedroom. And we can hear you. So could you please not do that? When you've. Maybe could you please be aware of that sounds nice?

When you need is it, so so they doing okay. Yeah. Okay. I mean, I think it's good like you said, you don't wanna go back and forth. So we'll see what she says. Chill about this. He just asked us not to have sex with her boyfriend. Freaking out over here. This conversation is my nightmare. The worst Texas ever been set. And where responsible? Hey, guys.
