Who Matches Up Best Against Kamala? Mollie Hemingway Weighs In
"We come back to this and our machine is frozen. When the Republican nominee seeks to find a running mate, they've got to pick one with Kamala Harris in mine, who matches up best against her on a stage. Well, and it's one of those reasons why I'm actually not sure they can drop her for Shapiro because it would be very difficult to get rid of the only female on their ticket. But that's probably one of the reasons why Republicans are thinking a lot about Christina or a Nikki Haley, although I don't know. I actually don't love it when people pick for that type of reason. And I thought Mike Pence actually did a great job debating her in the 2020 or in 2020. So who knows? I sort of believe Tim Scott will be our vice president, regardless of who the nominee is. But here
Why the Memphis Police Chief Should Resign
"You are responsible for the police department. You hired these officers. Now you want to walk away and say, oh, they're bad officers. It's your direction. You run the police department. What training did you give or did not give? Why in the world are you do you have a scorpion unit, which is a special unit task force against criminals and why do you got officers on that force with two to 5 years on a police department? Two and a half to 5 years on a police department. That tells me one or two things about your leadership as a police chief. Either policing is so bad in your city that you can't find officers with tenure because they're leaving and you have to result to create a special unit for officers that have less than 5 years on a police department. You are literally setting him up for failure as a police chief. But that's not her not there. Take no accountability because you above everything because if you throw them under the bus before you get ran over about a bus, then they become casualties and you get Scott free. I think the police chiefs should resign as well if you are responsible or if you are taking charge where officers are doing what you claim is the most heinous thing that you've seen. I'm paraphrasing. You claiming to dislike it to Rodney King. Under your direction,
Seb and Chris Kohls Discuss the 1979 Horror/Sci-Fi Classic 'Alien'
"Watched alien again this morning. I mean, what kind of a job is that after breakfast, I got to watch alien preparing for the show. I actually did the same thing. I did this. Great minds. But the first thing that's kind of peculiar, and I love Ridley Scott, my favorite movie of all time is Blade Runner. And this man's eyes is majestic. But it's a category busting movie because it's sci-fi, but it's also horror. And the weird thing for me is, I don't watch horror movies. I don't like horror movies, right? Not my bad. But this, this is just so well made. It's so compelling. The acting, what you said, the tightness, the performances. It's not a schlock horror movie, is it? No, and you know the performances need to be noted here. I don't normally care that much about the acting. But I don't know what it is about the way Ridley Scott directs and actor. But I mentioned this in a previous film. I think it was, I think it was either die hard to lethal weapon. There is a sort of cavalier attitude that the actors tend to have. You can see it in something like the magnificent 7. There is a kind of acting where the actors just sort of, you know, they just act like normal people. You have certain acting today is often in films and television is often very intentional. Everybody's saying something in a way that's very clear so that the audience understands it's almost theatrical. But this is not like that. When I was acting, I wasn't particularly successful actor, but when I was acting in Hollywood, this is the kind of acting that I liked to do,
Chief defends delay telling public of mass shooter at-large
"The police chief in the California city where 20 people were shot at a ballroom dance hall, 11 fatally, is defending his decision not to warn the public for hours that a killer was on the loose. I'm Ben Thomas with the latest. Monterey Park police chief Scott Weiss tells the AP other law enforcement in the region were alerted, but it didn't make sense to warn the public late at night, even after receiving a report that the suspect may have targeted another club nearby. I'm not going to send my officers door to door, waking people up and telling them that we're looking for a male Asian in Monterey Park. It's not going to do us any good. We said the scene inside the club was overwhelming. There were victims about every ten feet. And his team needed help. Nobody in our department, including myself, has ever been involved in a situation like this. They brought in the LA county sheriff's department, they'd be able to pull that information out and get it out to the public if it was necessary. A sheriff's official confirmed the fatalities to the AP about four hours after the shooting, but it was roughly an hour later the first word came a suspect was at large. Several hours later, he was found dead in his van, authorities saying, from a self inflicted gunshot. I'm Ben Thomas
Rep. Scott Perry: Reaction to AT&T Taking Down Newsmax
"I would love to get your take on what direct TV is doing AT&T DirecTV now canceling newsmax. They had already deplatformed one America news. Newsmax happened to be the only conservative cable channel that had been broadcasting Trump's rallies and addresses and then last night they got deplatformed, should we be concerned about this? Well, you should be concerned, look, the large woke media outlets are censoring individual voices where they can in mass communication forces where the message is unpalatable to them. The good news is that there's going to be alternatives. It's going to drive the market for alternatives and these low corporations are going to start going broke. They're going to lose market share and hopefully they'll be dinosaurs of the past and we can have a free open media and a free open market where the ideas of everybody are heard and we can all make our assessment of course that's not what they want and that's not what some of the government want, but as long as we can still have a competitive market, there's going to be replacements. It's unfortunate it has come to this, but people are going to have to make choices. And if they appreciate being lied to every day and receiving Soviet style propaganda, then they're going to accept it. But you and I both know Todd because their listeners to your show that they are not going to accept it.
Rep. Scott Perry: Impeach Alejandro Mayorkas
"Curious to know why you want to impeach secretary Alejandro mayorkas. Well, Todd, good day to you as well and good day to America because Republicans are finally in charge of one of the branches of the legislature and there can be some accountability. So look, secretary mayorkas has made the case for impeachment himself. He's not only flouting the law, just ignoring it, but he's actively he's actively objecting to the law and refusing to follow it and imperiling the citizens of the United States of America. We each take an oath to uphold and defend the constitution of the United States, not the constitution of Mexico or Guatemala or Columbia or Venezuela. We all want to help Todd. Everybody wants to help these people in need, but the way to help them, the people in need is not by stomping on the face of the people that you serve. And the people that we serve pay the taxes, it's their schools that are in peril. It's their streets. It's their hospitals. It's their paycheck and their wallet that's in peril and our duty is first to them. And so with all due respect, secretary mayorkas has presided over record after record of illegal crossings into the United States of America, not the least of which is Chinese made fentanyl coming in and killing American citizens more double every year than what we lost in 20 years in combat in Vietnam. Now many people don't see an issue, maybe they don't maybe it's not come to their hometown or their family, but by the time it does, unfortunately, it's deadly serious and we have a duty to make sure that we preserve the tranquility, the domestic tranquility that the people in America have a right given them to them by God to enjoy. You know what
Why the RNC Is Angry With Harmeet Dhillon
"I encourage every single one of you. We need you right now to just communicate your sentiment to your RNC chairman or commitment. They are making their decisions in real time. And if you have not yet sent an email, you guys can get all the information, there's a website that is up and running. It's higher harming dot com H IRE harmeet dot com, hire like you're hiring somebody for a job, hire meat dot com and you'll go through it and we have a lot of patriots watching right now from Oklahoma. We have people from Nebraska. We have people from Ohio. Just go and contact them. That is all organized by Scott pressler, by the way. And this is really bothering the ruling class of the RNC. In fact, they are putting out press releases that their troubled that the people are now involved in this clubby process. Walk us through. Right, I mean, look, I want to be fair here. Many members of the RNC do come from the grassroots and even if they don't, they realize they're representatives of the people and they care. So emails to them, polite emails, best if you're from their state, are persuasive. Many other members of the RNC have been very angry with me. That supporters of mine like Scott pressler have put out email addresses. And there have also been some unfortunate phone calls from no effort of our side to people supporting Mike lindell. I'm sure he also doesn't support that kind of effort. But at the end of the day, I'm a representative, but why did I step into this? I represent the voters in California, millions of them, Republican voters who want the RNC to win elections, and they sent me there for that purpose. And I sit on a board, I sit on the board of the Republican Party, the Republican Party is not fulfilling its duty, and that's why I'm stepping forward. And
The latest in sports
"AP sports I'm David Schuster to NFL playoff games contested Saturday in Kansas City, Patrick Mahomes played through an ankle injury throwing a pair of touchdown passes as the chiefs down Jacksonville 27 20, Kansas City coach Andy Reid crediting his defense. I thought from the DBs to the defensive line to the linebackers, I just, again, my head goes off to the guys for that. Meanwhile, in Philadelphia, the eagles overwhelmed the Giants 38 to 7 with our Michael luongo in attendance. The eagle jumped to a 14 nothing for his quarterly on touchdown passes by a jail and hurts won the Dallas Goddard. The other devonta Smith first picked up a 5 yard touchdown run with 43 seconds to go in the first half, Boston Scott had a three yard touchdown one, maybe for the second quarter for the birds who were advanced to the NSA championship game for the first time since 2017. Coming up later Sunday, it will be Cincinnati at buffalo and Dallas at San Francisco. Lots of NBA action Saturday, Boston made it 9 straight wins, one O 6 one O four over Toronto, grant Williams scoring 25 points off the bench. As a role player in this league, you have to be prepared for any of those opportunities and you have to step up when the opportunity arises. And I feel like I try my best to do that and tonight shops went down and just continue to be aggressive. Evan mobley was aggressive scoring a career high 38 points as Cleveland defeated Milwaukee one 14 one O two, mobley's coach JB bickerstaff certainly impressed. You know, it's not just a particular quarter, but it's when winning matters the most. And I think he's got that gene when winning Mars is the most to rise to another level. And Minnesota coach Chris Finch had a bird's eye view, watching Anthony Edwards score 44 points as the T wolves defeated Houston one 13 one O four. Yeah, I mean, he was locked in all day. We had talked yesterday about how important this game was for us. And how he needed to set the tone. He certainly did that. He was special today. College hoops, TCU crushed number two Kansas, 83 60. I'm David Shuster, AP sports.
Karl Rove: Biden's Judgement of Trump Taking Documents Was a Mistake
"Is Karl rove over the weekend. The longtime Republican operative on Fox News channel. Here's Carl. Well, I like him. A lot of things that the problem is the president himself. I mean, you ran that I think one of the most important pieces of tape to be seen about this, which is how did he characterize president Trump taking documents to Mar-a-Lago? And in that, in that September interview with Scott pelley of 60 minutes, he goes out of his way to take a two by four to Trump. He would have been better, even if he even if he at that point he didn't apparently remember that he had classified documents, but he should have said, you know what? That's in the hands of the Department of Justice. I'm going to leave it alone. But the political in him, the political analyst, and he said, I got to take a two by four to president Trump, big mistake. We're going to see that piece of footage time and time again as this drama plays out. Now, Karl rove is a political animal himself. So he thinks this is just politics. This is in politics. He's a liar. When Joe Biden said this, inevitably, he had no business throwing rocks in his big fat glass house. When you saw the photograph of the top secret documents laid out on the floor at Mar-a-Lago. What did you think to yourself? Anyone could be that irresponsible. And now he looks positively ridiculous because you are that irresponsible grandpa, you were that irresponsible. You were reckless. You were shoddy.
Scott Schober Shares His Thoughts on the Risks of Crypto
"See Scott sober is joining us. You got out of your tech holdings. That's very interesting. Yeah, I think it was time because while all the challenges with the current administration and it just seemed like too risky and things in the real estate investment trust very select one seemed to be doing well, not the ones that are paying a whole lot. Of course, it's a little scary. Because I don't know how long the last, but and then as far as crypto, I just, I would run from that. It's just too much risk there for all the stuff because I focus more on the cybersecurity side and I literally report every single day. It's a new crypto and ICO in exchange, something goes under and it just seems so risky unless you have money that you're willing to throw out the window. I would not consider that unless you're somebody that's in the space day in and day out and understand the inherent risks of crypto. It's not as much a crypto as bad. It's probably more the means that it's stored that you're not fooled, so it's not compromised. So unless you're willing to really understand the background of it, I wouldn't say the blockchain is broken or it's insecure, encryption and secure. It's really understanding the whole ecosystem. Unless you're willing to spend the time and money to do that, stay away from crypto just too risky, that's all.
Expert Chef Andrew Gruel Talks the Left's New Attack on Gas Stoves
"All right, let's go through the list of all the things that the left thinks is toxic. They think masculinity is toxic. They think marriage is toxic, they think Christianity is toxic. And now they have a new one. Oh yeah, they think owning guns is toxic, borders or toxic. They think children being children are toxic, but they got a new one. According to the freak Scott Weiner from California who we have gone into great detail, who he is. He says conservatives are trying to make protecting gas stoves, which are toxic. A culture war issue. Well, look, I don't cook very much, not one of my gift things is to cook. I'm actually awful at it. And but I know from very limited experience that electric stones versus a gas powered stove. It's not even a question. And joining us now is chef Andrew gruel, who is an anti lockdown chef from California, somewhat of a legend, Andrew, welcome to the program. Thank you for having me. I appreciate it. All right, Andrew, you are a world class chef, very well respected. I am a layman with these things. The extent of my cooking is something similar to a pyrotechnic experiment, and it doesn't always go well. What is the technical difference between a gas stove and electric stroke? Let's just start there. Why should gas stoves be continued in the culinary tradition of the west? At the very base of this, when I cook with electric, the likelihood I'm going to burn my food is probably a 1000% higher because it takes so long to get the pan up to temperature, but then it also takes so long to get it down that when I do get it up, it keeps getting hotter and hotter and hotter because you can not manipulate heat. I can't just turn it on or off, right? I turn the gas off, it's off. Electric, it's this long slow gradual incline and decline. So you're going to burn your food, which actually burnt food, they say, has carcinogens in it, which could lead to cancer. So they're encouraging you to die.
Gaudreau, Steel lead Wild past Islanders 3-1
"The wild scored three times in the last half of the third period to beat the islanders three one. Frederick goodrow tied it with a shorthanded goal with 9 O 5 left. The bar played in score, but at least there was some good momentum created on it. I thought we'll take them on whatever situation power play PK 5 one 5. Sam Steele put Minnesota ahead just 93 seconds later. Philip Gustafsson turned back 19 shots in the wild's first win in four games. Scott Mayfield opened the scoring, and Ilya siroc had made 33 saves, but the islanders dropped their fourth in a row. Minnesota won despite going zero for 6 on the power play. I'm Dave ferry.
Navigating the Senate Minority With Sen. Rick Scott
"Senator Scott, how are you going to navigate now being in the Senate minority? What power if any do you have to be able to issue subpoenas and have meaningful oversight be done? I think the biggest thing we do is we each have a pulpit. And we can talk about things. That's why I think what's going on in the house right now is you're starting to see a lot of people out there being vocals. That's the biggest thing. And I plant my plan. They say rescue America dot com. I think everybody ought to say, this is what I believe in, and let's fight over what the right answer is. That's one. Number two is we won't be, you know, the way the committee structure works, the Democrats will control the committee's side. It's a public demand that we really have better understanding of what Joe Biden and Hunter Biden's relationship was with China. The Democrats are going to have to do it. So I think the key is, we need to get out there, talk about the issues and put the Democrats in position. There's going to be, I think, what, 24 Democrats up this next cycle, they're going to have to start worrying about their elections. So I think we have to be constantly out there. So I can propose bills. I can push things on committees. I can ask the federal government for more accountability accountability. So like yesterday, I talked to secretary orchestra Homeland Security about 400% increase in migrants in the Florida keys. Now, I'm going to be very vocal that it's his job to fix it. I think he is misrepresented or lied whatever you want to call it. Where we are on the border. But I'm going to hold him accountable. He'll come and he'll be coming to talking for a committee. And I'm going to ask him, how he's doing. I'm going to do that with everybody. That's what every senator has the option to do this. We just all have to be very aggressive at doing it.
Rick Scott Shares His Plan to Build Consensus Among Conservatives
"Then your plan? Because you're not given up to build a consensus amongst members and amongst the grassroots to challenge McConnell again and I don't even mean the policy plan senator. What is your plan to be able to navigate that country club that calls itself the U.S. Senate so that you could become Senate leader from raising money or to messaging, is that something you're still going to go after in the next year and a half, two years or what is your, what is your current risk? Absolutely. And I'm not giving up. Good. Charlie, I'm not giving up. And here's the way I think about the Senate. So look, there's I need every Tuesday we're in session. With Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Ron Johnson, Mike Braun, right? We get together and we say, what are we going to do to make sure that we hold government accountable? Watch our dollars. And so there will be more as we do this more and more. There's going to be more. But do you know what the real key is? It's you. It's the public. There are going to demand their senators to do what they committed to them when they ran for office. Look, I'm simply reflection on my state. So I represent I tell people, I represent Florida. Look, I'm not going to tell you how you should vote. So where do you voted for me on a platform? I said, this is what I'm going to do. 8 years to watch me as governor, I paid off a third of the state debt. Paid it off. I balanced a budget every year. I didn't borrow more money. I fixed the pension plan. I fixed our prep the insurance plan. They said, I said, this is where I'm going to do in D.C.. I'm going to try to do the exact same thing. I'm a business guy. I'm a fixer upper. I
Senator Rick Scott Discusses His Challenge to Mitch McConnell
"Think that Mitch McConnell has got to go and he has done some real damage to our country, the omnibus is just the latest example. Walk us through your current plans, your calculus, and what do you think is the state of Senate Republican leadership? Well, I ran against Republican. I ran against Mitch McConnell because I think we have to have a new direction. I mean, probably one of the best examples is omnibus or two weeks away from have Republican leadership in the house and we let Nancy Pelosi instruction were right and I'm in this bill and then Mitch McConnell supported. Votes for it. And that's wrong. I mean, that's not we didn't get rid of the IRS agents with it. I mean, there's nothing, I mean, there's a good spending power. There's something good probably in the Bill. It was logical. But we've got 31 and a half $1 trillion worth of debt. It didn't have Republican priorities had Democrat priorities in there. And so I wanted a new direction. And I'm going to keep fighting for a new direction. We've got a great Republican Party out in around the country. We got to start having the Republican Party in D.C., which we don't. Stop taking into the Democrats. And China Bill, the gun Bill, the infrastructure Bill. All those were just caves, the Democrats. It wasn't Republican priorities. Those were Democrat priorities. And I think we've got to change this party. If we want to win elections, we've got to say, don't just do what some people want to do and say, well, the Democrats are bad, which they are. You're going to say, but this is what we're going to do and we're hell bent on doing it.
Andy Mangione: The Hypocrisy of Joe Biden Is on Full Display
"I got to play this clip for you. This was Biden with Scott pelley on 60 minutes, not long ago. You saw the photograph of the top secret documents laid out on the floor at Mar-a-Lago. What did you think to yourself? Anyone could be that irresponsible. How could anyone be that our irresponsible, Andy? Mike, I can't help but think that there's a little bit of delicious you reap what you so sentiment in all of this. What we're seeing is the abject hypocrisy and corruption of the Biden administration in general and attorney general Merrick Garland in particular. This is the Keystone cops of presidential administrations on full display for the American people to see Mike. That will be now see an FBI raid on Joe Biden's residences in search of these classified documents. That president's already been set. But the Democrats run the Department of Justice Mike, so we're not likely to see that they would do anything to damage to this president. Now, if anything, the Biden administration may not realize just how much political capital that they've deposited into the accounts of their many competitors, namely one Donald J Trump.
Rep. Scott Perry: Joe Biden Had No Authority to Declassify Documents
"Biden had no authority whatsoever to classify or unclassified documents. And by the way, every single as a guy who held a top secret security clearance for over three decades, every one of us knows that if one of those classified documents in your care is mishandled, miss stored, whatever you want to call it out of the chain of custody, you're going to jail. That's what we all know. And so this is a very, you know, look, it's another day where we wake up in America and you see two standards of justice. One for those who are connected who say the right things to the right people and one for the rest of us who live in fear of our government, you know, President Biden had no problem out there scoring former president Trump for what he calls the mishandling of classified documents or the irresponsible way in which they are taken care of. I remind everybody that the archivist and the federal government at large knows every document that president Trump has. They have an argument of a whether he should have it or not. But here's what they don't have Todd. They don't have an argument over how it's stored because it's stored in a secure compartmentalized information facility. That's the long version of stiff. That's where those documents are stored across the federal government. That's where they are seeing. That's where they are red. That's where they reviewed. And that's where they must be maintained unless you have courier orders to remove them. And so it's apples and oranges in the way that both presidents are being treated. One is being persecuted, essentially set up for an argument. The other one has broken the law for apparently about 6 years now and now the mainstream media, which is that you will just forget about it and act like it didn't happen at the same time you're supposed to demand that they throw the former president in jail over a dispute. And
New York Republicans call on new GOP Rep. Santos to resign
"Local Republican leaders in New York on Wednesday called for the immediate resignation of new GOP congressman George Santos, who responded that he won't resign. The call by more than a dozen Republican lawmakers in Nassau county for George Santos to resign was an extraordinary rebuke of the freshman congressman. He's not welcome here at Republican headquarters. County Republican committee chair, Joseph Cairo. And we do not consider him one of our Congress people. Santos is facing multiple investigations over his personal and campaign finances and lies about his resume and family heritage. Republican Hempstead supervisor Don clavin. He's a national joke. He's an international joke, but this joke's got to go. And is on us calling him for to resign immediately. Santos on Capitol Hill flatly rejecting the call, speaking with ABC News, Rachel Scott. And tweeting I will not resign. I was elected to serve the people not the party in politicians. However, Santos is constituents have also been calling for him to resign. Julie Walker, New York.
"scott " Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show
"Folks, welcome back. I'm talking to the author of rediscovering America, brand new book called how the national subtitle, how the national holidays tell an amazing story about who we are. So Scott, you were just saying that in a way, it's unavoidable that the 11 national holidays that are encoded that there are official national holidays, they tell a story that's unavoidably biblical and Christian every one of them somehow does and that says something because part of the reason we need a book like rediscovering America is the fact that for the last 50 or so years you have people who are effectively cultural marxists who hate the founder's vision of America who hate this vision of America who don't want to point to 1621 but to 16 19. We're really facing and have been for decades facing forces that totally disagree with the thesis of this book and the vision of the founders, two of whom we celebrate on president's day. I mean, Lincoln, he's not really a founder. But in a way, his vision was always looking back to the founders. He looks back to Thanksgiving. So we've been in a kind of ideological war, which is why I think your book is particularly timely. Well, I would take it one step further. We are in a spiritual war. This is a very intense spiritual battle that we face. And we had better wake up to that. Because the enemy has been gaining ground. And we need to push back at every front churches need to be mobilized as they were in earlier times where you want to bring to the public square the beliefs of your faith. We don't believe that we're all comfortable with the separation of church and state that we're very tolerant country. This is not a Christian country. But we know that essentially the founders of the country, 95% of them were Christian. And.

"scott " Discussed on Insight Out with Billy Samoa
"Them when. I meet them someday but i believe he's actually closed most of those well people in one on one dinner conversations. Okay so clearly. His personal brand. There's a status piece. He's also doing the legwork himself by having one on one conversations closing them he is a hero to you and in many ways. You revere him so much that you you're modeling and lot of what you're doing after him. What haven't we explored yet about. Scott people wouldn't know that maybe you know if you're not familiar with his story and as much as he does have a personal brand. I guess that a good percentage of people may not know who he is at all and if they do they know very little about him. We know now through this conversation. Some of those pieces but what else is so impressive about him. That would make it worth sharing right now. His subscription model so he has a subscription recurring revenue stream model for his nonprofit called the spring so the spring is basically where you donate thirty bucks a month. It's forty now and with that forty bucks. You get one percent clean water. So i have a member of the spring as an example blitz. scott hurson is very well and he's the only nonprofit i know of. Who's done this. Like at a level that is unheard of is he creates a whole community out of it so the spring is not just you give money and that's it you get an email every month with an update they tell you where the well is literally where the well is where it is on the websites. You can actually go see the well. You're helping fund it's actually bonkers when you're spending forty bucks a month or something and the other pieces even have book clubs. You can actually go meet other members of the spring. So he's made it this entire community the way that he describes it. It's a movement rather than the money so it doesn't matter if you donate five dollars a month or five thousand dollars a month. It's about art. You are you in on this party. Are you in so that we can join together as a group to solve this big problem. That's what he's done really well through his marketing. And as you see. 'cause i know you wash this twenty minute video. The call to action is joined the spring so joined the well which is like sixty grand a year. It's hey can you give five bucks a month and you get thirty bucks a month. And he got daniel act the founder of spotify..

Mean he wrote it you know yeah almost every time if you see him live. He says sways gaffe. So maybe he had a may occult ball or maybe you know he's. He's adapted lyrics to certain songs over time. Anyway i thought it was..

"Give me a hard time about it. But i can. I can buy the version of the song. I can almost tell where it was when it was just. That's cool I may have asked you this and If you guys have not If you're new to the show I had a friendship month earlier in the year or indiana and and so scott was on with another friend. Scott it was the scott scott show and so Please go back in here that that was a lot of fun. They met in camp and then later became friends. They rediscovered each other and adults. Which i think is just an amazing story. So i may be duplicating a couple of questions. But what about bruce captivating you can you articulate why he became your guy and has remained your guy i will try and you can tell me if i articulate girls so i always loved history and i like trying to think of the word While try something else. Because i can't think of the we're having a senior moment but that's alright. I've always liked sort of team sports. I like the concept of a real band that that gets along not wanna fight. And everybody's got ish you know and i'm sure some of that goes on but you know for the most part. It's a pretty cohesive unit that he's created here because they all care so much And the whole is greater than the some of the parts is he you know the one plus one equals three thing that he stated and i from the very first time i heard almost every song it just hit me like i'm in. I'm sold so love at first sight. You know you just you know when you see it and you know when you hear it but what i always loved was this was a guy that was playing with his friends. The grew up essentially with these guys. Give or take you know in and out a few we were there. And they've stayed true. Tha their their mission. Statement and what they represent and You know. I totally respect the fact. He writes his own stuff. That doesn't mean. I don't like other people that don't write their own stuff. That are just very talented but to me it's just to that next level so to.

Glad to see you back. Yeah thank you now. I i do not think the episode where i had. This revelation is come out but I had a guy on the podcast a couple weeks ago. And he started talking about summer camp. And finding bruce springsteen and i said you know i just realized that's a common theme on this podcast and it's funny because Collin who is on the podcast The shoot as we're recording. I released that yesterday. He was from great britain. But found bruce in a. You know east coast. He had gone to america as in a camp like as an internship or something. And that's how he discovered bruce so If i remember correct brightness how you guys discovered bruce yeah you're spot on i as a little kid You know in my neighborhood. There were a bunch of guys and I was kind of the second youngest. So you kinda looked up these older guys. And they all love bruce. And this would have been you know mid seventies dating myself bryant. he's Then i went to overnight camp up in maine in seventy seven when i was nine and you know looking back now. I didn't realize that was you know. Maybe the golden era of know how much. I have loved and done dan if i wrote older but Just got really into it..
"scott " Discussed on The Psychology Podcast with Scott Barry Kaufman
"Out why Out you change them So yeah in some ways but you know what's really interesting thing about this scott. My observation is the in some ways. This is what people in the clinic. Typically do already like the people who are writing the dsm or more funding scientific research but just clinical psychologists who are interacting with people. Somebody comes in. What do you do you try to easily. what's wrong. You try to understand their problems. He tried understand like the pattern of their lives. Specific ways they think about things the specific personality profile. But they have that might be like helping entering. And then you know you deal with that person as an individual so in some ways. I don't think it's that weird. It's just so counter to the way in which everybody is obsessed with Identifying labels for people in slotting them into the right boxes. Because that's how you not put on the insurance form and in theory that's how you know what pills to give the all right because that's another thing. We haven't even touched on yet. Is the current obsession in psychiatry with treating everything with belts. Well that's a whole different conversation. But i hear you. I want to ask a fault question Because you've talked a lot about trying to understand And moves moves away from thresholds of the actual characteristics themselves. But i wanna talk about the other end. How do you find. The cutoff cybernetic dysfunction. You know i mean you won't you haven't we haven't focused on that question as much as right. So that gets us back again to this distinction between psychopathology and mental disorder. And so what we think is that actually again. It's an objective question or not whether somebody is has cybernetic dysfunction because remember that requires two things first that you are. You're blocks from moving towards some of your important goals. And then the second thing is that you're unable to engage in the process that allows you to.

Kids are gonna do believe that. I'm an ex unlicensed. Pharmacists guy long term recovery. And nobody could tell me. I was invincible. You know. I remember my mom when she first caught me. I said well it sure beats drinking alcohol like you and dad do on friday you know and and that was what was in that three to five percent range so it was nothing. So how do we help. People start with parents. How do we help. Parents have a conversation with their children. What's what's been your experience at works. Well you know you mentioned. Kevin sabet and kevin actually wrote the forward to my new book. My ninth book which will hit bookstores on july tenth which you may not know symbolically is seven ten which is international dab day if you take the word oil and flip it upside down your calculators. Some high person figured out that looks like a seven ten. So seven ten day is to concentrates as for twenty day is to marijuana so on dab day i will be releasing the dangerous truth about today's marijuana johnny. Stacks life and death story kevin Sobat from sam wrote the forward to that so fortunately Very well acquainted with him. We've some partnership plans in place. Said i had to just push back a little. I don't think kids will be kids. I don't think that children who actually know. And are given the respect the information the neuroscience the data on what is actually happening to their brains if we come to them as parents who are not saying. You're not allowed to do this and this is bad. Don't you ever do this in my house right but to talk with them very as you know intelligent young people who can grasp the concepts of science and to them. What happens when you use. Thc how does it affect the brain. How does it bind to neuro transmitters. What are can have annoyed transmitter. Cb cb to where are they located in our brains. What's supposed to be happening in your brain as you grow. What happens instead when you use marijuana. How does it alter the structure of the brain. What are the outcomes of use short term and long term. What can it do to you. I think that we simply don't know as parents. If you're not prepared to have a conversation with your child outlined as i just described it you are not educated enough about marijuana it is everywhere it is at every party. It is in middle school. Shockingly ten percent of middle schoolers here in colorado us. In half of our highschoolers use it is going to be an epidemic very quickly. pandora's box is burst wide open scott and it is now officially the gateway drug we know from the centers for disease control from two thousand and nineteen with their youth behavioral risk survey that marijuana use lifetime. Marijuana use is the number one predictor of whether a high school senior will have abused opioids in the past thirty days. So let me say that again. The number one predictor that a high school student will abuse opioids in the past thirty days. Is lifetime marijuana. Use not alcohol. Not anything else stat. was measured marijuana. So what's really critical to understand. Is that marijuana has now surpassed.

These are two incredible releases heart of his upcoming album to release this year. Enjoy the show. Hi scott thank you for coming on the show. Today's really great that you could spend some time with. Thanks for having me. No that's great. thank you. so you're getting. You're making a lot of noise with the music. You'd sunshine. I was looking on the web site. You've had quite a number reviews. Radio play Need chop. That's this a single. That kinda came about there wasn't supposed to be on the ep. It was a song. That i kinda wrote really quickly and Just kind Threw into the there and But the press said. I've been getting it's been like quite a bit you know. And he's you never really know like what that leads to but But it's been it's been Exciting my end to to see how many logs skipped pick it up and like different countries that cover it in who likes. It doesn't like it. You know it's really. It's not very much genre like it's not just country music so it's a very subjective type style music so they so like it's interesting to see that some people like it and they liked the vibe and and others are like i like it but it doesn't set ni- would covering type of ricky that beginning firm inside box the that's one reason. I like it. But i was doll as music but actually all my notes here. I have genre question question question. I it wasn't it wasn't american. Could be a bit. Folk-rock bit breezy. Amen i was thinking who. Who does this remind me up. I hope your complimentary but it reminded me of america. The band america a name particular justice the best one i felt but i was into it But to me there's floated is conflicted because it's a downbeat but in the back you year sunshine so shy night. Was that intentional. Yeah yeah. I mean like i had this idea ahead of like what i'm hearing you know and It's a small percentage of it like comes out in the studio as you trying to strive for hundred percent. You don't get fully good You kinda roll is like what what is happening in the studio. You know that it starts with the drums right so so we make differently each write the song with it acoustic guitar and i think in in my music on it. There's a. there's a bit of a undecided tension between the dark and the light you know And it it's very you know whether that's you know country music and rock and roll or You know folk music and Yeah by just yeah anyway. I feel like there's there's some type of tension always you know the tween the between the two and That definitely is coming out his song white. This because it's like some dark undertones in a light light hearted like Sixties rock and roll. Kind of five. You know like like the bees or on other band. Slake the animals you know. At that time they were saying you know even the beatles. They're singing a boat dark stuff but they're making pot you know and and i think that's kind of what i was for on this on this track just to I tried to read a positive song. you know. this is my attacks by said it was complected. Surprises spin is always consecutive. I think you know. I'm i'm conflicted. Leah hanson Was the guitarist. One june our winner. How'd you meet up with him. I mean it's a i mean.

"To be expiring from their experience so to me. That's like an unconscious or subconscious attempt suicide. We should treat them the same way as we do. A suicide put them in a whole observed for a couple of days. Give them some information. Don't leave till they make some commitment to look into what's going on. So i'm real passionate about that michael and i'm also very conscious that i'm only one person and i know there's thousands out there that are working on this and you know we. We can't seem get ourselves together the room yet to talk about nationalizing some sort of mechanism to try to really others prevention programs everywhere and is great people doing great work. And i'm i know. I'm onto facebook pages with them. You know seeing it on instagram and watching the the people talking about getting surprised staying in sobriety you know but i also see the people that are treatment resistant and i see how families struggle with their loved ones to try to convince him to get into treatment but no one is prepared to deal with the family meal with addiction unless they experienced it before so i would really my biggest appeal today would be to say. Look if you can't call me and call me. Here's my number again. Six one nine nine three two seven three. I'm in san diego california if you're sitting in some other parts of the country while you're too far away make the call we'll talk through what your options and opportunities are and if you don't wanna call me that's fine three magic words. That are hardest to say. I need help. How do we determine. And i'm gonna give you one more fact another. Lets you ask me anything. You want to ask michael. According to science fifteen percent of our population has an active addiction issue. That will erupt this next twelve months and when i say active addiction issue. I'm talking substance abuse. I'm not even talking gambling. Food sex internet and i'm sure there's others out there that didn't mention to keep percent but what's even more scary. Is that fifteen percent of us. You know i'm not them anymore. I'm addict in recovery. But i'm not actively using acting out fifteen percent will impact seven people a day each whether it be through their level of impairment whether it be through their driving whether it be through their performance at work whether it be their relationship with their family or their siblings or their neighbors are the parts of the community. So if you think about that that's eighty five percent of our population so we have three hundred and thirty million people in the us. It's all the man. Two hundred sixty million plus are impacted by this disease. I wanna to call it. And i believe it is of addiction and substance abuse and again people will push back well. Just don't pick it up. You won't have a problem. Well guess what everybody knows somebody now and i think that's the number that's projected for two twenty twenty five is what is it almost like one in six people or have a major problem and they'll have to deal with it and they can't just deal with it by stopping. They're going to need help. You mentioned a ninety. five percent recidivism. Correct that so we're clear. The fact of that follows if somebody just goes into a twenty day pro for example like i did. And that's all. I do meaning if there isn't a continuing care if you don't continue with your your clinical support or if you don't get into it so some sort of social model or you get into recovery group or your joined some some some other faction of getting support me. It's like a diet once you've finished losing your weight and you hit your goal weight. You can't just go back to doing what you used to do. Those things you have to learn how to do them and you can do that during treatment. But you need to take that information and you've got a consumer that education because if you've been getting high for ten fifteen years or more or twenty years you can't fix it in a month that's the point so twenty eight days stay do nothing else. Science shows you have a ninety five percent chance of relapsing or reciprocating correct. So we have narcotics anonymous and alcoholics anonymous These are all things you definitely recommend becoming involved with. They're they're they're the twelve step programs the fellowship of recovery they're ca. There's ma there's essay. There's always there's g a ton of non and by the way you can go online and you can get into a virtual meeting so if you're sitting at some rural area going i can't on treatment but you have a computer phone. You can go online. You can join the meeting virtually so that's certainly a pathway. I also tell people that. Look 'cause i remember they call it the god problem in recovery and i understand some people uncomfortable. It's seems to be a faith based program but here's the thing if that smoking it doesn't work view. They're smart recovery. There's there's buddhism out there there are all kinds of different faith-based groups you know That have their own form of recovery. Or they've adopted a form of recovery. I don't care what it is you do but just do something meaning. Don't avoid it all because it doesn't make sense to you or irritates you or you think there's too much god stuff or not enough god stuff. Don't let that be a reason not to get extended support and help is what i say no matter what it is you pick but don't do what you've always done because you'll get what you've always gone. 'cause my best thinking nearly caused me to take my life. My best thinking had me putting poison my body every day trying to kill myself so that part of that of my mind that i've been healing with my own recovery program. If i stopped doing that i could potentially relapse and according to science if your body's without altering substances for ten twenty thirty forty years but you pick up that day. It's almost like you never stopped. And i don't quite understand that phenomenon that it's been explained to me that something you don't get a choice on so if i were to drink tomorrow it's like i've been drinking the last thirty four plus years so whatever help works but get help meeting ask for help seek. Help be inquisitive ask. A colleague talked to a friend talk to a family member. Check in with them. Because they all know you know. I thought it was a big secret. Nobody knew drinking problem. When i went into treatment. You hear.

"Working. Now i know i'm gonna get a lot of flack for that but i do know this. Two thousand was seventeen. The last study was done. Forty billion dollars spent by america to go to treatment. Forty billion and the industry has an outcome success rate of less than five percent or another way of looking at it ninety five percent relapse rate if all you do is twenty eight day program and nothing else and my. My confidence is really high. You can ask any major insurance company as any major treatment center. And it's a really real honest they'll tell you that's the outcome. It's unfortunate but they tend to blame the addict or the alcoholic. say well. They weren't ready or they weren't willing or they didn't want to work. And the funny thing is when we talk to people who have this disease of diabetes for example. It's my best analogy. We never say that to them. You should eat less sugar. You know you should watch what you eat you know but in the meantime we're going to help you monitor your blood sugar level. And here's insulated. You need it when you know back in my day. If you had a nice watch on they would hesitate and bidding you to treatment. Because i figured you weren't done. No maladaptive. behavior is treated the way addiction as we as a society. Do not look at any other medical issue. The way we look at addiction we see self self inflicted basically it I know but you know. But i think out seeing someone being choosing to do this themselves to themselves rather than it becoming something that they can't control right now. I remember people telling me. Wait wait wait. If you wouldn't pick up that drink. Would you have a drinking problem. Well there's nothing wrong with drinking. I think people do it all the time of difficulty with me. A guy who's pre wired a certain way predisposes with what i call this addiction. I can't have one drink. I can't. I can't stop there and i you know when i when i tell people you know. We haven't spoken about it yet. But we we look at the current landscape of our country. You know right now. People aren't even really talking about alcoholism anymore when you compare it to. What's going on with the opioid crisis. Prescription drug medication medications written by da licensed providers doctors pharmacies etcetera. And then you look at you know the the sentinel that's being mixed with oxycontin now with heroin and you take a look at the counterfeit medication. That's being made some in our country summit china's some in mexico and it's coming through candidates come into the mail and it's being sold on the dark web. We have got this level of consumption of narcotics now in our country. We have never seen and you can't open up a newspaper. Listen to the radio watch. Tv turn on instagram or facebook or any social media and not read about some catastrophic overdose. I mean just recently that you know. Famous young baseball player was found an he. According to the autopsy overdosed on think it was fat. And all oxycontin. Oxy morphine and opioids. So that the concern that i have today is somebody who's been in long term recovery. Who's now in treatment business and the crisis intervention business. It scares me because the way young people are consuming narcotics to a. There's no will. There never was before but whether it was because of the quality control the old days we used to steal stuff from the pharmacy. I used to get drugs before the. Da put numbers on you know. Da distributed or licensed providers. We used to go into hospitals. We'd steal them up the card so we knew there was a a. We didn't think about it. Then but now people are picking up you know counterfeit zanex and counterfeit you know oxy cotton and it's cut with sentinel because they could put such a small dose in and i know that i've been interviewed by many people law enforcement. I asked the question to them. What is the motivation. And i know what it is. But i asked the question. Why would someone distribute the product and get interviewers asked me why would someone distributes distributor product kills the consumer. Why would they want to do that. And i said well every time there's an overdose it gets on the news every time it gets on the news their sales increase. So that's the answer for that. You know no news is good news but this news is bad. News bad news for drug seekers either way get higher. How do i you know. Spend less to get more and just give me your name again in the west coast. Methamphetamine is ten times less expensive than it was ten years ago ten times less and ten years ago it had five percent purity now and has ninety percent purity that's just methamphetamine. And i know that because the department justice the medical examiner. The da the da. They're sharing that. I'm on the prescription drug abuse. Task force here at san diego on. That'll be task force. I am fully immersed. And i'm now classified as a subject matter expert by the local television station because whenever something comes up that's around subs abuse or overdose or you know counterfeit. They're calling me and saying can you come give us a read on it. I was just interviewed today. by station they just had A slow mini-summit diego and the da was there and they called me and said can you and opinion on recovery and what works so. That's what i talk about today. As much as i can. Because you know. Law enforcers talks about the problem. Medical examiner talks about the morbidity rate. You know right now in our country it's north of two hundred and forty people die every single day behind prescription opioids two hundred forty day which technically is a plane crash. When you think about it if we had a plane crashing every day the federal government would intervene in a way the society with intervene in a way the communities would just say stop it and one of the things that i'm very involved with as a group called save homes coalition which is a group that helps educate families on how to get prescription. Medication unused unsafe medication out of the home. Because right now. According to science the average heroin user seventy percent of the heroin users started on prescription medication and now doctors have gotten smarter. da's putting more pressure. The american medical society have decided in surgeon general. Cdc they've all to said look. We need to stop writing. These prescriptions. Well the person who's addicted doesn't say. Oh this is a cultural shift. I'll reduce my consumption. They're finding ways to backfill their prescriptions. With fenton all or street drugs that are cut with fat. and all. that's why my opinion we're seeing this level of overdosing going up know some states instead. Will we finally started to reduce it. They haven't they've just reclassifying it as a suicide versus an overdose. And i'm one of those people i wanna see people who overdose get the same kind of support that someone like myself. Did i hide reported. It tries to commit suicide because someone who's taking drugs today. That are gotten from the street or from the dark web or technically.

'cause i didn't drink that night coming home from new york and the first thing that the intake person said to me was you know. Scott you'll be here for twenty eight days i go. I don't care whatever it takes. I'll do whatever it takes you tell me what to do and i will do it and they said. We hope you partied well last night. Because it'll be your last party. And i'm thinking god another missed opportunity was it. I keep mystic was my timing always so off. Why do i feel like a victim of circumstances. I'm sitting in a rehab and you know. They gave me some medication that we normally do for for detoxing so my sobriety date is actually the thirteenth. I waited two days establishment november thirteenth. You know nineteen eighty-four was my sobriety date and it's it's still continues to be my sobriety date so this november off goes well. You know what. I'm close to it. And i was like my actually my home group this morning Sharing a little bit about coming up. On my anniversary of my sobriety. I'll be celebrating. Thirty five years of continuous sobriety. And you know. I say that out loud it it just sounds like what 'cause i live my life. You know like most of us who have decided that we can't do what we used to do. When data time. 'cause i can manage that and i've heard you know holistic health and gut hills and mindfulness and meditation that you can find ways to live in the moment you can do anything and i. I'm getting better at it again. Tell you sixty five. I'm still working on it. Which to me means connected to what. I need to be connected to continue to move forward rather than saying i'm done. I'm going to close the book on that. I don't have to worry about anymore. I do so that night. I remember going to my very first. You know fellowship meeting and everyone that was at that meeting either veterans who have been in the program or veterans of a fellowship and they asked the newcomers. 'cause we're in institutional enviro. Anybody have any questions. And i remember saying something goofy like you know. How does this program work. And they said really. Why don't you just try and listen. So i don't know seemed like an attorney when it eternity went by and they asked the question again. The newcomers have questions. And i said. I don't understand your answer. And then they said we'll just take the cotton out of your ears and stick in your mouth. I still wasn't clear. So they they used a higher level of profanity to convince me that. I just need to shut up and listen and that was my very first message on a very first day in treatment and i spent the next twenty days and impatient program listening to every suggestion everybody made and as i do family week and my wife got engaged With the program in my parents came into my siblings and some of my friends. Some came and abandoned me. And i wouldn't have the rabbi. Come visit me. Tell me though. Scott jewish people drinking problems go rabbi. I got an idea on my wrist and their alarms on these doors will confirm. I'm in an institution. And i want to be here because everything i'm doing now starts to make sense because what i was doing. Four didn't so that was kind of my trajectory Going into you know. The thanksgiving season being treatment during the holiday season and then getting it and i was lucky i knock on wood and i'm grateful each day that i i was able to grasp what people were telling me and it was obviously a life changing event so from that day forward. I never took another drink or drug. And i've spent the last thirty four years eight months nine months finding ways to be a service and help others so moving forward You know what i do today. Is i run and operate company recovery. It's a outpatient program. But i started five years ago. There's a lot i've done. Obviously in the last thirty years. I ran a nonprofit for eighteen years called second chance it was a program put together to work with people coming out of jail in prison and i had one hundred seventy five alcohol and drug free beds at its peak and we help the underserved get jobs and housing. So i spent my entire adult life trying to find ways to give back and to be of service to help others and help families navigate to getting their loved ones not early into treatment but access to appropriate level of care. And what i've learned is one size does not fit all what i've learned is that everybody's different and everybody thinks they're different and i'm trying to continually battle the stigma around people who have this disease of the now. I personally believe it's a disease. And when i talked and i publicly speak. Whatever i'm invited. I talk about the statement. I talk about the disease and i talk about addiction to talk about the. There's hoping their state and when you think about it when you're talking about diseases. Denial inability feel stealing. The person who's got the problem doesn't think probably think everybody else's until it gets pointed out to them in a way that it becomes really clear they are the problem and they're a big part of it and nothing's really gonna change until willing to. They're willing to try to access. Help ask for help or take some suggestions for people who are around them. So that's what i try to do. Today is be that beacon and be that light of hope and faith that there is an alternative. And i were now with families like call myself a family navigator. I'm a crisis coach and invite people all the time. Michael if you don't mind. I'm gonna give my phone number out right now. It's six one nine nine nine three two seven three eight six one nine nine nine three two seven three and i really i challenged people dare people to call me or text me and let's talk about if i can't help you look anyone in this country or in the sound of my voice or your you know your program to call me anytime or text me anytime and it doesn't matter where you are. What part of the country or the globe. You're on we can talk about it. Because i know watching the progression of what i call on the trauma. We're seeing you know. The suicide aviation is growing and it's getting younger and younger population. And you know this october. I'm going to be speaking at the mental health of america's national conference in san diego. And my topic is if you do what you've always done. You're gonna get what you've always gotten and the idea that is to put the brakes on traditional substance abuse treatment in my opinion right now in our country is just not.

We're so glad you called us. what don't you get yourself together in. Please come downstairs. we'd like. Have you talked with our security team. And i'm thinking. Oh my god i have been in a blackout for nearly three days. There's fourteen of us on our team there and that was one of the team leaders. But i wasn't at the meetings. So i go downstairs about five in the morning. I in clothes that were just so with alcohol. And i couldn't find my cash my traveler's checks. Yes we use those back in those days in my airline ticket all of my assets were gone so i go down to the front desk and go once you walk over there. Mr jones i'll say for now is waiting to talk with you. So he sits me down and he says first and foremost let me just tell you that we would like to invite you to never ever come back to our property. Now i had no idea what they were talking about. And i looked at him. It should look. I have no idea what you're talking about. He we'll let me break it down for you at about two in the morning. New york city's finest law enforcement officials. Brought you to us. You were completely passed out. We put you on a luggage rack and we took you back to your room. Do you remember any of that. I said absolutely not. I think you're making this story. It's just not we're not making it up then we took your traveler's checks your money and your ticket because we didn't want you to lose it because we wanna make sure you've got home and as soon as possible or at least left here so we put you in your bed and here. You are a few hours later. Do have any idea what happened last night. I said no because we'll let me break it down for you. You were found across from the train. Station was their carnegie hall much. Sure and you were actually a passed out in the street. That's what he means. We were told by law enforcement that you were horizontally laying in the gutter on the street as if you fall in there or you were sitting and fell over until asleep and when you think about this story about the the typical alcoholic where the old alcoholic or the drunk. That's where they were always found is pass out in the street here. i am. You know this business guy in a family. Business with a team of co workers and cohorts and i was passed out in the streets of new york city. Now what's interesting. Is i used to carry a badge at work. Corporate security badge. 'cause in our business. We go into different malls after hours and part of my job was to you. Know operations is to make sure that you know if alarm went off i had to go meet with law enforcement so i had this badge in my pocket and i also had a rookie and coincidentally that week i was in new york. It was a national conference of connex officers or undercover narcotics detectives. I can't remember exactly what it was and my badge was the same color so they made the assumption. I was associated. Somehow at this conference. Law enforcement did so rather than taking me interesting me. They gave me back to the hotel staff. Because i had a room key on me. And i was dressed nice so that morning i decided after they gave me back on my personal property that i i had to check out and i was flying home actually that night so i took my bags with me to my morning appointment and i was devastated because you know i saw a couple of my colleagues early in the morning they. They looked at me and just walked away. They didn't wanna talk to me because they'd heard from what the hotel staff what happened. So i get to my first appointment. And i was just uncomfortable physically and emotionally and i go to this guy's office and i said can i use your phone. He said sure. There's just close the door. So i go in and sit down and it was a hot day. Windows open the forty fourth floor of his his building so i went to the wedge of the window to just catch my breath because i just it smelled like alcohol last outfit of the week and it was covered in alcohol so i knew everyone knew now and i'm thinking how do you explain this to my crew to my wife to my family and i sat on the window sill and i said you know what all i have to do is close my eyes and lean back and just to the ground and everything will be peaceful. Everything and i was ready so i moved back got in the position. I was just going to lean back. I closed my eyes of closing my eyes now. Just reflecting on that moment. And i was prepared to end my life because i just couldn't figure out how i was going to explain this one away and two things happened one in my head. I remember my mom. And i have a discussion earlier that year when i talked about. You know suicide or we talked about it and you know because as a kid when things were bad i just jump off a bridge. You know we all do that because kids. We think about that and she told me once twice. Maybe that suicide is so for son. There's something you wanna talk about. I'm always here for you. So i heard that on my head but it didn't matter that point because i knew i was going to have to explain myself openly with everybody because the cat was so i just continue scoop doc i have one hand off the wedge and i was ready to end my life and in walks this guy his office and he's discovered they're gonna is just getting some air. I'll be right in. You've heard the term divine intervention so between his activity in.

"That took place and i was trying to figure out ways to take less medication into my body mind and soul. But it wasn't very good at it and so i went and saw you know a specialist and they said well. Here's the medication take this. You won't crave as much and you won't be surprised for you won't have to drink. And then i found a way to take the medication and mix it with the alcohol. The drugs and illness awesome. I i was sleeping better than i was waking up more effectively and i was waking hours each week i ever had been so i was happy again. Still working eighty ninety hours a week. That was a big thing in our family work hard. You can do whatever you want after work and do really matter. My family was starting to get concerned about some of my behavior and the memory issue and i was embarrassing. People at weddings and bar mitzvahs especially social events. So i stopped going. It just kept going back to the bar. And i love happy hour because i could always get a two for one and i was like That show cheers. You'd walk into a bar and everyone knew my name. And i remember one friday night. I walked in and everybody stopped me. It was you know two people and they started clapping. I thought what is this. somebody's birthday. It turned out it was my sixty fourth consecutive happy hour and it was a record for the bar so i was being celebrated at night for coming in for sixty four consecutive fridays. Not a great benchmark of success in one's career life. But i was honored at night. 'cause i dreams for free for the whole month anyway and i thought how proud of my you know what i'm thinking. I had two grams of cocaine in my pocket. This is gonna be a great night. And i remember i had a major blackout that night. Don't remember saying other than that going in and seeing that event nothing else after seven o'clock did i ever remember so you know i'm i'm still in this medication. Still seeing this psychiatrist kinda work on the depression and you know they said look. Why don't you just stop that. Stop what we'll stop drinking. Because that was the one that people saw publicly. So i said okay and i'd stopped ringing for awhile. All of a sudden my cocaine use was up. My marijuana consumption was up. I was taking more methamphetamine and back in those days by the way one of the things that i talk about in my book i wrote about was. I was an unlicensed pharmacist. And a lot of the listeners will know what that means. Some of you won't but you know you'll figure it out unlicensed. Pharmacists i this distribution green. San diego was the methamphetamine capital of the world We were had methamphetamine. Labs all over county plus. It was coming across the border. I was dealing with importing it rather than manufacturing it. 'cause i just didn't want to go through the headache. So that was something. I was doing to help. Supplement my own substance abuse was A became a distributor coming from a retail environment. I understood sales and marketing and the opportunity to You know sell enough drugs to do not have to pay for my own personal consumption. So i apologize about my puppy in the background. This activity around where. I'm at so the goal was to try to find a way to stop drinking. I did. I was successful. You know then. I became a weekend alcoholic. And that's somebody basically distracts from friday to sunday and My wife is real concern because we go to events and she'd have to drive home the next morning on sunday she'd say here's the list and i remember the first time she made the list. I said what what's the list for. She said you need to call these people and apologize for what happened last night. And i'm like what she goes. Do you remember anything i said. No i don't so then. I started getting to the point where i'm not going out with my wife anymore. We got married and you know at our wedding. I remember i had cocaine. You know we were at the hotel del. When the nicest premier who kill properties in san diego and i had cocaine up in our room and my buddies is just basically did coke tonight if our wedding and i remember when it was time to toast the bride and the groom my brother was who we lost a long time ago was toasting me. I was in the bathroom with my buddies and and how sad it was. Someone came in congress. Says you know your your family's toasting your brothers toasting now and how embarrassed. I was when i walked in late. And i remember my father in law when we were setting up the event he says. How many open bars would you like and i said. How many are you willing to pay for. And he says well. I i think one's enough and i go but that's gonna means everyone has to walk across the room. So i kinda facilitated him having three separate open bars and nobody would have to wait lying for their booze. And i remember giving all of my best men in my wedding party whiskey flasks. You metal sterling soared. Flash over hammered metal. In and i had my initials i think initials on all of them as a special gift and i fill them all up. My big drink in those days was some comfort. And that was my favorite and member. Janice joplin got a fur coat. once on stage. She'd held up a bottle. So i saw that. I wrote southern comfort and because i had a license plate actually was so embedded in my consumption of alcohol and other mood altering substances. I actually got a license plate. Here in san diego that said so come on it and i took a picture of it. Send it to southern comfort. And they sent me T shirts and you know glasses and posters and all kinds of fun stuff for months on end. And i remember how proud i was remarking back to the day when i was you know sixty four consecutive happy hours so those are very unusual. Benchmarks when you think about life in general most people are doing things like you know. I played sports. But i didn't overly play and they were getting awards. Two different things. And i was doing volunteer work in the community but just enough to get by and again i was family business. I was in the background working hard and making very little money and You know i wanted to do was just work hard enough money and play and not be bothered by anybody but my behavior was started to really magnify now and as i got into my late twenties talking about it and she says you know maybe you need some help and i said well. I'm seeing gary and other doctors. Well he says you know when you're ready you'll let us know and if there's anything i can help you so i never went to any kind of you know program. I never really went to any you know anonymous meetings. Because i didn't think i had a problem. I was managing my wife. I got married hondo. My wife and i were living there and life seemed to be okay. I was managing. I thought except when i drank a blackout so going to the last part of my binge. Eating i'd gone back to alcohol again and i was mixing it with cocaine again. There was on a trip in new york On a business trip. And then. I remember getting there. I think it was on a sunday. And i don't remember monday tuesday wednesday or thursday and then friday morning early. Am four am. I was in my when i was in a bar. And that's the last thing i remember and then i woke up In my bed in the hotel fully clothed pursued on three piece suit and tie and my london fog raincoat. This.

"Up the lid and lift up the lid. And i put my head in there and slammed the lid down on my head. So i was immediately taken to the principal's office. My parents were called. And you know blah blah. So now i'm in a second year of trauma. And i'm having a real hard time figuring out what's wrong with me and i got relabeled again as a disciplinary problem but behavior problem A non-starter student. And but my fortunately for me my siblings were at the same school because it was not only a great private school but it was also a school for kids who had special needs during those days so anyway so they couldn't really kick me out and then they got moved to fourth grade. And then i had a teacher who was deputy sheriff part time kept a little wooden hickory paddle up in the wall trend everybody every day. This is the days they could still spent kids. So made it a point that you're i would not would knock at that paddle in the option was simply you either right sentences or you take the paddle so fast forwarding. I'm going to the year barely got through summer. Came didn't get too much trouble. And then i got into fifth grade and fifth grade is where all of a sudden now. I've got a little bit of maturation going on and i had this really horrible teacher. I call them. You know horrible teacher. But his name was mr crabs. He's no longer alive. So i'm sure i can say his name and i was. You know kind of the master of inappropriate behavior in the classroom. Because that's how. I got my attention as a kid. So i'm giving this information as a baseline for future has and moving to the story so one day i got my buddies to straight pins and benjamin use rubber bands and there was an old clock behind the teacher when the teacher faced us was right above the old chuck board and i trained my buddies on how to take the straight tunes and fire them at the clock and make a lot of noise and disrupt the classroom so one day The teacher got really upset and called me out. And i said look at me. You know. I didn't point to my buddies. It was them so the next day we came back fully armed with a whole box of straight pins and everybody bent them up and we set up. We fired him off and sure. enough the teacher turned around and was just going ballistic and made me stand up. Asked me to lead. the class. Tried to blame me for all of it. And i was sent to the principal's office so within an hour an ambulance in the police for coming into the school. And i'm thinking this can't be it can't be something i did but in my head because i suffer from catastrophic thinking that well somehow this is what they'll be my fault mr krebs that had a heart attack right after my class and the police were brought in my folks were called. I was sat down and they basically told me to mind you fifth grade. I think i was twelve years old. I was now being labeled as somebody who could be arrested for involuntary or voluntary manslaughter. If the teacher died. I you know i couldn't believe it and my folks were shocked. They were pointing fingers. I had something to do with this. It was just you know it was just sir dipa. This timing if you will so. I'm in the next class. And you know they sent me back to the classic got me again and i was interviewed by law enforcement and they were asking me what happened and know fortunately for me. Mr. crept survived. And i went onto my sixth grade year the next year at the school so anyway fast forward. Because that's kind of what happened to me and my single digit years. And then i moved into the public school that i was set to private school in arizona and had my worst. Gpa ever it's like you. Back to san diego. I wasn't home three days in summer school making up from my bad gpa. And i guess me a cigarette. Hey would you hold. This bathroom is a sure. So it's in my hand it who walks into vice principal so i was expelled from summer school. You know three days suspended. Actually so you know clearly. I kind of felt like you know what is going on with my world. How is this possibly continue to happen to me. Why is this happening to me. Was i brought here from some other planet. I mean you know what is wrong with me. And that's where. I kind of started to spend some of my thinking and as i got through that junior year in high school i had a year left. I did everything. I could just kind of hunker down But i started drinking In my junior high school years and then into my high school years. And because i want to wait a boys school when i was fifteen. I didn't get my driver's license until i was in my late. Sixteen year. So i used to ride my bike up to the liquor store when i was home. And in those days You know the fast food and you know seven. Eleven chains would sell liquor out near this sending the state university because i hated waiting in line at the fraternity houses. Had they serve beard anybody but the line was long. I would always by half pint putting my little five. Oh one jeans because it half pints fit perfectly. That'd be on my stingray. And i used to go buy liquor. I put a white shirt tie. Because i grew up in a family retail business. I knew how to look older. That was easy to do. And that's how. I used to drink on weekends and no one really knew everyone else was doing it so it wasn't that big a deal so as i got on my senior high school then all of a sudden i got introduced marijuana and methamphetamine and i loved it. I love the way mood-altering. I call the mood altering substances when i took him. I love the way felt in. The way i felt was didn't really feel anything i was so i really enjoyed that. And then 'cause my brain to stop worrying about what it was people were doing with around me and it gave me excuse to not have to deal with you know the consequences of some of my behaviors so that progression went on through my late teens. And then i got introduced to cocaine and back in those days is know back in the late early seventy s to mid seventies anything that you could purchase you. Know from a narcotics perspective was pretty pure so it was pretty potent stuff. But i was always working so i was working at partying and working party and that's one on through high school and then might like teens and twenties and i wouldn't Turn it off and it was started to experiment now with second all barbiturates pencils they're called and then i started to introduce more cocaine and really got into bear. Wanted a big way and it started to glue agents because they were really just you know. Lsd and mushrooms. And it's fascinating here. We are two thousand nineteen and i just heard from a high profile drug counselor here at san diego magic. Mushrooms and lsd are back in middle school. I mean it's unbelievable with all the things we have going on between and all heroin. You know the gray death and other things that are exposed to kids are exposed to the day that lsd mushrooms are back in middle school. So i continued to work hard during the week party. Heart drake hard or the weekends and you know my life was pretty manageable. And i you know there's still one of the four kids in the family and i was doing. I still the black sheep. But i wasn't getting in trouble like they used to. Because i kept to myself because every time i drank or got high i had an episode of some sort so i tried to stay away from In the appropriate places and did a lot of my drinking alone or with friends at home. Are they going out party. But as i got older my twenties. I started to go to happy hour. That was mike right place. Kind of burn it off and always go in and drink always bring some cocaine so if i had too much to drink i had my coping to kind of keep me going throughout the night. So that's kind of how my drug use progressed and ultimately As i moved into my twenties I was experiencing some blackouts. And i know that because my friends would tell me that the way i behave the night before was totally inappropriate and then i met my soon to be wife in my mid to late. So i've known her. She was actually family friend but she had matured and had an incident. Won't help this shoe. And i remember calling her. We fell in love over the phone. Eventually we We got married. And i was about twenty seven and a half twenty eight when.
