Fresh update on "six hundred thousand dollar" discussed on The Majority Report with Sam Seder
"Cancelled assuming that these are well paid. People selfishly pursuing their own ends. What you've illustrated is that many of them would go to public service. We know for example that. There's a shortage of dentists in rural areas because they people graduate from dentistry school with so much debt. They have to work in highly populated cities to pay those loans back. So we're all suffering and we'd all benefit from full cancellation. We'd have this economic boost. People would spend money in their communities. People could pursue public interest careers. It's a win win for everyone. And joe biden. It does afternoon. Well you mentioned dentistry. And i i thought about doctors and lawyers as well and then being predominantly probably. I m sure. The bears this out coming from wealthy backgrounds and the trickle down that that effect has right so we have a lot of medical racism in this country. Back could be an effect of the fact that a lot of people from wealthy families go into pursuing being a doctor and other people might be discouraged because they just don't have the means to pursue those kinds of careers and lawyers as well. And can you talk about some of those effects in in cultures of professions where they have to pursue degrees that are so out of people's price ranges that they wouldn't even consider it altogether either. Yeah in fact. One of the striker is one of the by jubilee. One hundred strikers is a doctor in miami armand henderson. He's part of the dream defenders which is a great racial justice group in florida and he his point is exactly what you're saying he's saying before household and i had to be six hundred thousand dollars of student loans for his medical degree. He wants to serve people as a physician but again. This debt often drives people to specialize in certain types of medicine where they'll be higher paid instead of doing the work they want to do with people who most need equitable healthcare so again. It's these perverse incentives that wind up happening. And for armand i know i can speak confidently but this is a this is an equity issue. This is a this gets the heart. This is one of the reasons that our medical system is so discriminatory and unfair but six hundred thousand dollars. He'll never pay it off. Let's Let's talk a little bit about the well. Let me ask you. I guess both this. Oh elizabeth your debt now is twice the amount of money that you borrowed and like i say in five years i just find that just absolutely stunning and do we have a sense of how much of that one point. Two one point seven trillion dollars is just the prophet that the us government is going to be making on this. I've never seen that britain. I've never seen that broken down. But that's a brilliant point we should we should get the research on that absolute. The point is also that one point seven trillion again. As i said it was one. Trillion won t day in two thousand eleven so we are racing toward two trillion rapidly. So we get a sense of it in that scale of growth all right. Let's talk about the the other aspect of this. Which i think is really important. It's that You don't want to close the barn door as it were when we talk about the opportunity for an option for free university in every state. And let's be very clear about this because i've actually like interviewed some people who were you know i. I can't remember this. Specific instance but People assumed like it would be ridiculous to have the. Us government you know pay for harvard. University's tuition for everybody. That's not what we're talking about right. We're talking when we say free college where we're saying everyone has the opportunity to go to a university presumably in each state. That is free that you have the opportunity to go there. You go to other private institutions. Won't pay more right but i mean if that's what we're talking about yes yeah elizabeth. I'd love to hear your thoughts. On what a difference that would make for your generation. I can actually speak to the insensitive new york city. My home state. New york did try to enact on a free college for all ability to rather very similar to other teams that have been implemented in other states however out had the bar like Like earnings at one hundred fifty thousand dollars a tender but research has shown that only about three percent of a folks have been able to enroll in the it does come saddled with a bunch of different caveats around having to like live in the state and like we're gonna sleep for unfair or even like the current scheme that that our policy interventions meant to addresses are still not comprehending as would be just free college for all. I know several people who have left the country because they're unable to pay their student loans. And i know people that have dropped out of school because they're unable to pay for school and that's a reality for a lot of A lot of black and latino folks in that situation what happens is you accrue a certain amount of of debt. You can't go all the way in college because you can't afford anymore but then you go back out into the job market and your opportunities are limited because you haven't gotten a graduate degree in the that number grows and grows. Well let me ask you this. How pro- how problematic would it have been elizabeth if you were forced to have gone to if you have the opportunity to go to a for university in new york state and there was a couple of billionaire..
"Work in vanity fair the new york times magazine and sports illustrated. Let's give them a call. Let's do it. Hello hi. this is cheryl strayed. Thank you so much for agreeing to talk to us. I have my co host. Steve almond here. I am a big fan of your writing. Thank you thank you so we're talking about spending addictions today and we'd love if you could share with us and our listeners. Your story let's go back to the beginning. How how did this begin for you. I think it began Ten years ago. I think it was frankly. Precipitated by My wife lisa job overseas new york university and abu dhabi. And that's kinda hard to make a weekend trip and i was. I was on my own. And i was an empty nester. My last son had just got off to college. And when i was on my own i sort of just started shop i think it was related to repression. In my case. I think it was related to trying to figure out my sexual identity clothing for me is very Linked to sex and so it's one box two boxes. Three boxes four boxes. I mean no one except the ups guy probably felt it was insane. And you know. I got a sexual rush. Every time i opened the box and you know in some cases When even aware it out and it just would not stop and it got worse worse and frankly i wrote a book was a memoir by one of my sons and it didn't do well and that is when i hit the wall and i just felt the press. I thought i don't really give a crap about anything than you know ultimately went into rehab. Did it take you some time to come to the conclusion that it wasn't addiction. People diminish this experience. I think we say oh. You're you're a shopaholic and it's not really an addiction. I'm curious what your experience with that was well. I hate the term shopaholic. Because i think it. Minimizes what this is. I mean this is an addiction when you're spending six hundred thousand dollars on leather three years. That's an addiction. That's insane when you have over. One hundred pairs of leather pants and over one. Hundred pairs hundred fifty pairs of leather jackets in two hundred pairs of leather gloves. And obviously i'm a leather fetishists. That's an addiction and you know it's like any addiction it can destroy can certainly destroy financially but it can store relationships it harm my relationship To to my wife. So i really hate this idea that you know. It's like that movie shopaholic in it's kind of cute and it's ridiculous and i know because of rehab and and fifteen years of therapy but can you point to the moment where you realized you needed to address it. Get into rehab. Whatever it was. What was the the low point. I think it happened in two thousand fourteen because there are a lot of things going on within me. Begin to abuse myself physically. I mean you know. I would burn myself. I would cut myself I would you know play with frankly. With with weather is fixation hoods by myself and then i knew this was getting dangerous. 'cause you know you can kill yourself and that combination of factor said you. I'm really going down a rabbit hole. And i need more than just once a week therapy. I really need something. Very very Intensive edits help. But it doesn't cure everything and you know the the urge in the addiction still doing well. So what did you. You went into inpatient rehab. Is that correct. Yes and what did what did you learn there. I mean how did you learn how to at least control this. Even though you say it's still with you. Well i mean you know. It's it's like anything in rehab for me. I can speak for others. You know you're trying to get to the root cause and you know it's painful to realize i mean for me. I think this shopping outgrowth of tremendous sexual repression Fear of coming to grips with with who i am and i still don't know who i am sexually which i think is fine. I don't think we have to put labels but my wife had been waived in fear and shame as a child was terrified of my mother i could see her as a dominatrix. I never felt comfortable with myself physically. I never felt comfortable with the way. I looked

"Today's guest is mike winkelmann a beagle. Welcome mike great nice to have you so you're a digital artist and you've worked with apple. Louis vitton nike justin bieber and katy perry even producing one digital artwork a day for over thirteen years. How did you get into crypto So a bunch of people just started telling me you should check out this. Nfc stuff and so really only like two months ago. I looked into the space a bit closer and saw a bunch of names that i recognize. You know in my certified design area. And so as i go there definitely seems like there's some here and so i like dole van and i have a computer science degree you know. I'm not a programmer. But you know that piece of it really started like interested me so it. Just the possibilities. I thought were just endless. There was just a bunch of things people by try and get it. I thought sounded really really finally. Try and you ended up having a big digital art sale last weekend that rakes in three point. Five million dollars. Congratulations thank you. Yeah it was crazy the to see. But i also think like it truly is like sort of the start of people really like collecting the I think you know the the the physical tolkien paired with the the annettee. I think email makes it something. People can really understand and sort of like speaks to their inner sort of like collecting voice. And i think it's just the system that you know will be a the future of sort of like you know collecting artwork sieve. Tell us more of the details about that sale. What did you offer. How did you offer it and what happened. Sure saw the biggest thing that i think is different from this sale than previous sales. Is that each of the pieces. Included a physical token you know a digital screen that was very closely tied to the like blockchain. Though it wasn't sort of like you know cries that could be separated easily from the nfl at something. That's very sort of meant to be looked at as one piece And so i. I made you know people ask collect dot com which sort of like houses the collection and then You know there was an open edition For those on sale for just five minutes and then you know which also includes physical token twenty one auction throat. The weekend Sold single edition You know sort of pieces to the highest bidder and so that was sort of like the components of the draft. So you know all weekend. We sold six hundred thousand dollars worth of the open edition five minutes and then you know the everyday's themselves the auction we're going over one hundred thousand dollars on average at last piece went for seven hundred seventy seven thousand dollars so i think it just shows that there's like a huge appetite for you know a tightly sort of connected digital and physical sort of like
'Who the hell elected you?' Big tech CEOs grilled in US Senate hearing
"Were about to turn to a segment on big tech The C. E. O.'s were grilled Wednesday on Capitol Hill about how they moderate election disinformation extremist content we there were accused by. Republicans of Censoring Conservatives. But before we go I wanted to ask you about how facebook design changes to its news feed algorithm in two thousand seventeen to reduce the visibility of Progressive News sites like Mother Jones Your News Organization according to the Wall Street. Journal some policy executives at facebook voice concerns in two thousand seventeen about pending changes to the news feed algorithm that they thought might have a larger impact on right-leaning news sites like the daily wire. So engineers made changes to the algorithm that would have a bigger impact on the traffic to left leaning sites. Meanwhile Mother Jones Editors wrote in two thousand and nine thousand nine. The site had seen a sharp decline in its facebook audience which translated to a loss of around six hundred thousand dollars over eighteen months and apparently according to the Wall Street Journal. Zuckerberg himself signed off on these changes,
How to Lead with Practicality
"I- Melody Harm from Yahoo Finance and I'm so excited to be speaking with Gary Banner Truck. Today. Thanks for joining a scary. Thank you melody. The theme of this year's Am SS road to recovery. Tell us what you're seeing veer media. Your focus has always been on innovative experiential marketing of course that has sort of been thrown out the window to a certain extent Tell us how you've been able to give it. During time, it's really funny. The way you've been structured that I totally get the positioning of us being innovative or disruptive or things that nature. But in actual business meetings with big and small brands I've always clarified kind of my persona or like the vibe around us. I've always said look people think that were innovating. I think more practical I. think that most people talk about today in a very confused way most companies really put yesterday on a pedestal what used to work and they think of today as the future, but it's actually today. So ironically is thought we were practical versus disruptive or innovative. So to your point in the way you set that up. We were never doing vr a are like the things I talk about what consumers are actually doing now like I think we can all agree that consumers give their attention to this device. and. So when we're doing media and creative in these channels and Ott facebook instagram, Youtube, Tiktok, whatever they may be linked in for B. Two B. Companies. We think it's practical. We think it's underpriced no different than that to Yahoo, and early there's a yahoo that ad product Yahoo Google ads like Yahoo ads that was driver for my family's business in ninety, nine, two, thousand, two, thousand, one, two, thousand people thought Yahoo ads was so futuristic but if you were doing them, you knew they were practical you were doing business. So what's actually happened for us is people have thrown out yesterday. And Have Opened Their Eyes Today Aka the biggest brands in the world that we work with. A starting to understand paying six hundred thousand dollars for production to run on television. Might not be the best use of their money and have leaned into e COM. And content and media being together in digital channels to drive business results, and this has been the greatest era of CMO's and real marketing individuals at the highest levels becoming more practical and practitioners. So we're seeing a lot of growth to be frank. And we're seeing people finally have the You know I was reading about this on Yahoo or Wall Street Journal or Ad Age, but I never took it seriously because I put yesterday on a pedestal. And now I actually see what you meant I can't believe facebook ads and creative can drive my business so much. So we're seeing a big seachange in Madison Avenue. And even start a planned to a degree and and obviously we're excited about it from our perspective. Ran We see this wide divergence when we look at the industry, right that are actually sending those ad dollars even if they're rejecting their budgets of course, retail financial services are two of the top senders. When you look at even the growth that's happening twenty twenty. How are you seeing that manifest in your business? Are there any particular bright spots that you can call out or perhaps laggards in the face? Overall? The the bright spots for me are. I can't believe how many whether it's craft or proctor pepsico the conversations I'm having where the actual sales data. is becoming the KPI, not the internal A. Or. Nielsen Brand Studies. So. You, know. I. Actually see a lot of if we're very heavy CPG we're heavy financial services as chases client like. We're seeing we weren't. We weren't in airlines or hotels like we got lucky is the only word I can use our client mix was. Berry. Benefited by Govan to be honest in the short term. In that timeframe because they're worried about supply chain to be honest, right our clients are much more worried about making more of their stuff than anything else. I think it's just affirmation of my prior statement which is. The bright spots or the advancements are as following. We are seeing bigger allocation to marketing because we finally got clients to measure on how well they're doing on Amazon dot com or proving to them that we're moving product at Kroger or Walmart or Home Depot. So what's happening investing more because the debate went out the window because they weren't lazy with their money because nobody can do TV productions. So you're seeing the real world of haves and have nots. The industries that were most affected are obviously in trouble more so than others and the industries that most benefited from it food necessities. Were unable to spend their marketing money. The way they're they're accustomed to. Meanwhile what was happening was the way they were accustomed to big productions on TV and then doing matching luggage to that TV spot on digital was for the last decade wrong or at least wildly overpriced.
PlayVS Plans Canadian Expansion
"The top news from this past week has come out of play versus the leading operator of Highschool eastwards events in North America has been incredibly busy leading into the school year since I had their vp of central operations on the podcast all of one week ago. and. You could find that show a futile this one by the way play versus has already announced two new initiatives. The first is that play versus is expanding beyond the US for the first time. Many of the top eastwards programs at university are in Canada including UPC definite leader in the space, and now play versus will also expanded Canada this school year players will operate Rec Leagues and Canadian High Schools and colleges in League of legends.

Part of that money is coming from play versus numerous partnerships with game publishers play versus declined to provide the exact breakdown of where the money came from but it's safe to say it's a combination of papers, his own money and the developer support play versus provides the. League's in the developers games and developers help provide scholarships to the winners. It's a good situation for both sides booth prizes coming from DEB's at least in part prize payoff can fluctuate for night and just fall alone. We'll have over one hundred K. awarded scholarships right games. The is a huge game for play versus the company's partners also has its own college program called U., L. A. Wealth, bright awards, scholarships to they might have still provided someone to play versus. But again, I can see the breakdown

"Patriots Pau Spartan here from the Midnight Patriots. So, one of the. Feel about anchored now. When we started this insanity, we always tell people. The reason we do this is because insomnia sucks almost as bad as tyranny. We would have these conversations between ourselves the group chats. Throws and things like that. We thought, hey man, you know we should just record a podcast, but the more we looked the more expensive became. Get Cross anger. Anger gives you all the tools you need to do this to make your voice heard and get your voice out there. You have an opinion you gotta use anchor everything from recording to editing to distribution that you'd be all the tools that you need. To allow you to record your podcast right for your phone or your computer. Anchor covers distribution by getting on Apple. spotify and many many others. I mean how you can make money right from your own podcast with no minimum listenership. It's everything you need in one spot in one place simple at effect. So get yourself anchor make voice her. Midnight Patriot, nation welcome to NFL. Mid Nitrates it is you boy spartan here with the the ever ever pot and flaming premix A good to have you as D to ultra. Sports nerds. In specifically football cards. On the end on the. Patriot staff. Phoenix tonight decided that we were actually GonNa do kind of a deep dive into what is pissing us off most about NFL and. Most pro sports in general to be quite honest. But we're GONNA focus on the NFL in this particular case because. Both Phoenix, myself have. A long history of both fandom and and. Playing Sports, we have a unique appreciation of what it takes. More it doesn't and how it is devolved into the into this shit show that it is. Just, we're just GONNA go from there. So Phoenix you had you had some thoughts that you wanted to start with go ahead. Well specifically. I I have a major gripe with the NFL in general. Being more politicized. And the. Let's End Racism. Okay, I get my left. Black lives matter. No sorry. They do and I agree with the message just not the manor which is being delivered. We've said that before on the organization go ahead. Exactly. All of a sudden you know we have a organization. That's Through much. Yup You can't do this. You know we have this. AFOREMENTIONED SCAMMED EMMA GOING ON. You can't do this. You can't do this. Well Yeah you can't. Okay. And then we have the social unrest of the nation being thrown into. A sporting. Venues. that. For All intents purposes let's call it. What is it's an escape. It allows us the viewer. Fan. That three four hours. Sunday evening Monday night whatever that. It gives us that escape from eager live love get up go to work and deal with people you come home you deal with cranky wife and kids don't listen dog that Shit's in your shoes. You've taken that away. And now have made it. Well we got to get on board with this. Well, we're relevant to. We're a large. Organization we goner? A multitude of platforms. That we have viewership. There any given? Day that we have competition So now we're going to. Paint messages in the end. We're going to have. Athletes will we're going to kneel to show solidarity. I got a huge problem with that and for our listeners I'm sure you have your own platforms as well. The American flag comes I stand for Gore country you back your country everything else second berry period. That's my thought on that. That's the way it is. Unfortunately when. The NFL NBA MLB hockey underwater basket weaving has become politicized in what we have to show solidarity with this. I have a question. Are you showing solidarity four? Message. Or are you As the NFL did let's put. The name of a known fell one on a helmet. Let's. Let's praise this guy because shot back when a an. Amplifier point in accused rapists. Is someone with a warning active warrants? For Rape Yes. So here in my eternal gripe with this, that will probably go down in flames just like the rest of them. Why are we? In fact. Standing behind. Someone. WHO BREAKS THE LAW? WHO does walk. Yes. They didn't listen. They got shot in the back whatever. House we say. Extenuating circumstances came to be that this ended up how that was. We have to stand behind this person as a form of. Instead of. Waiting, for all the facts that come out be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt. And then move forward from there. Well. That's the real question. Isn't it is is you know? All we've seen is what has been allowed to be released. Okay I mean look I think in his thing I agree with everything you just said save one thing. Okay. I don't think demand deserve to be shot seven times point blank in the back now. Having said that. He has an active warrant for his arrest, what he should not have done to prevent that whole situation was to surrender. Get handcuffed and be taken into to engage whatever process there is. Okay, you don't fight cops in the street if you do. You mess with the bull, you get the horns. Okay. He's admitted he was armed. He's admitted he was going for a different arm- armament. Okay. And what do we expect the COPS to die? I don't think so you know I'm. In the eyes of them, that's probably what they're saying. Well. Preserved by life fuck yours. Well exactly. The COP Exactly and and my my attitude would be y is either one wrong as far as you know, one one has a duty to behave professionally the other has a duty to follow the law. Or face the consequences you know it would have saved him from getting shot in the back if he had stopped if he turned around if he'd Toronto. Surrendered Okay Understand that I understand the Warren has has since been vacated, but that's beside the point. When a COP's his I warrant for your arrest I mean you're supposed to do is say what am I being arrested for? Okay I'll go peacefully ears might whereas my lawyer yeah. Instead, of no fuck you fight you tooth and nail, and if get away up the war still there, but you don't have me. Right. Exactly. Exactly and you know I got I got I got a I. got a interject because you know. My personal opinion is if you probably agree Is this. Cancer of case. started. It may have it may have had other sources. Okay. But its primary. Protagonist, in growth factor was Colin. Kaepernick a few years ago and I don't say that in a flattering manner. Okay. I've said it before the my opinion that Colin Kaepernick is the biggest fraud on the planet as pertains to the NFL. At least Ryan leaves when he signed what Leash Langley, when he signed, he knew he was shit approved the wish she had any faded off politely into the sunset because he saw a gay. young just tell the story as I. Recall it and you you you feel free to chime in when you. When when you when you if I'm off base okay. A lot of people don't remember this but you and I as King's football and many things in life have a have a memory quite a bit longer than than your average goldfish. Okay? I remember watching the first incidents of Cabernet court on code kneeling and he wasn't fucking Neil. He had just had an argument with his with with the head coach and I don't think it was Kelly. It may have been horrible. But he had the yard, the head, the argument with Joe it was horrible wasn't horrible yet. So out of you probably saw the clip to you can't find it now because it's Youtube everywhere else. He had he had A. Verbal altercation with Harbhajan and I can only assume in what we were told. You know later was that harbaugh. told him. No you're not starting a colon Cabernet got very unprofessional and like the diva quarterback that he is. Turn Turnhill stomped over to the bench slammed his helmet down in plop disaster down on the bench now by sheer and toll coincidence. Anthem had just started. The anthem it just started when that HAP-. ACI. I know you remember this is I think you and I talked about this at the time that it happened because we were mocking him because when I weren't weren't quarterbacks when we played the game and we know what divas they are even princesses, they are this. If you remember and I know you do espn headlines a couple of days. Later words were that Colin Kaepernick was going to be fine. Substantially for multiple instances of unprofessional conduct conduct deleterious to the team. Leading up to the altercation with harbaugh that happened where he plops his ass on the bench you remember that ideas that. Dakhla and it was it was post practice I. Believe I want a That later that week that a reporter asked him. About the state of the fines and Based on his lip based on. Let's just call it what it was temper Tantrum. Okay. And that's when Cabernet sold all this bullshit about he was doing it in protest etcetera etcetera and he played the race card, which we all know the press eats up hook line and sinker and never ever questioned. Ever On. Me It came across and partner Jackie No, you're good. The the instance of which we are discussing out my first thought on that was yes it's a temper tantrum and I'm about to be busted for having a temper tantrum. So allow me to make up some juicy. To Garner more attention to the fact that. This is happening to be Gimme Gimme. GimMe and I lost my starting spot. Well, that's the that's the point I'm making. He played the race card to avoid fight. For on professional conduct and he was he was outright given a past. I don't think he ever actually even actually got find something that was overlooked too is that is that nick is not a person of color is really not us he is a multi-racial okay and part of that find that he was going to get for unprofessional conduct was calling somebody else on the field the N. Word back can't say here because quite frankly it's feds even and number two I don't WanNa get show you monetize but that said that was part of that that was part of the fine to be levied. The fine was vacated. Okay. Because he was successful, you successfully played the race card and got out. Okay and this whole shift started this snowball at that point. as we as we all know you know he was he was basically the the the face man for chip. Kelly's offense that you know while short term short term effective was absolutely not sustainable. Okay. We all know that. And you combine that with the fact that the guy had. Just over just under a shooting just over sixty percent for completion rate. Even in that offense at his best day, he was a mediocre quarterback surrounded by a bunch of very talented people. Okay. So now it has become the fact that you know this whole narrative has has escalated by people that that know nothing about the actual game because. Football is simple. It's not easy, but it's simple. Is. The ultimate meritocracy. Okay talent hard work equals success. Okay there's a lot of guys. We can probably point him out on the field you and I. There's a lot of guys that that. That just simply outworked their competition to get where they are I'll give you. I'll give you one prime example and right now they call him the goat Tom. De. Tom. Brady was drafted was I can remember he was drafted. He was I. Don't think he was Mr irrelevant. But he was real close. He was the very bottom. Yes. Six he was very close to the very end of end of the draft in and he is he outworked is is competition. Now granted drew bledsoe. If people can remember back set for was not a very good quarterback anyways. He was only borderline better than Ryan Leaf and he went down Tom Brady took over in the rest as they say district but. No? One ever questioned, Tom? Brady's work ethic in those dynasty years in in in New England. Okay. Because he outworked he, he worked his ass off. Yes he was talented. Yes. He's physically gifted but that plus hardwork dedication to his craft turned into in the in the the hardware for the hand so to speak. and. anyways back to my point about Cabernet. All, these people talking about how Catherine doesn't have a job because he's bad for business or half rights, they're only half rice. Now I posted this to the page I know you read you probably it is I. Think I read this week we went to this is from ESPN DOT COM itself. Okay. ESPN DOT. com. The actual date this was published as March twentieth two, thousand seventeen. By their staff writer Kevin Seaford. and. I am just going to read it. I'm. GonNa. I'M GONNA. Try to read the whole thing. I'm trying Doug only try to read the parts that are relevant. But those those listening. If you go to our face, a bitch facebook dot com slash midnight patriots. You'll be able to find this article and we shared it the title of it is calling Kabir Knicks based problem performance. Politics. Day It starts off real simple. So Don't over think why Colin Kaepernick is still a free age simply put years have passed since he was ineffective quarterback he's twenty nine years old has succeeded in an unsustainable scheme as part of a well populated group of former starters who also remain available at as this week began now getting that was march twenty, twenty, seventeen. So they were in free agents. Okay. Let's. Let's move on here. It's blamed Colin Kaepernick's unemployment on his protest is to misread the way NFL teams make personnel decisions. that. I don't think there's any more true statement on Earth. Do you I? MEAN THAT'S Yeah. So it goes on protests where does say at any type of business that if you have lackluster performance, did you are guaranteed two hundred million dollar job? Number One and two I was GONNA say there have been divas troublemakers in the NFL before? Okay and Kim's and? Lewis Terrell on. You know. List goes on and on. And let's not forget the NFL is the lead cut an outright banned ray rice running back from the Ravens for domestic violence. Okay. Before he was convicted. Suspended A. Peterson for disciplining his child. Yeah for banking hit saw. Yeah. Okay for spanking his own child. Okay. So now they put criminals names on their helmet. so by but I digress I digress let's get back to the article. Just to just to go just to go. Teams are swayed I by players potential or lack thereof to help them win protest or not kapernick would be under contract. Now, if he had demonstrable if he had played demonstrably better in recent years. Let's look closer at where capper nick is as a quarterback and why that has left him sitting in a group that also includes fellow free agents, Jay Cutler Josh mccown Ryan Fitzpatrick and Robert Griffin the third. Again keep in mind. This is from shelvin teachings of this is three years ago. Okay. But. It goes on to some of the reason I liked this 'cause this is based on facts not just you know a bunch of race baiting bullshit. Kapernick grid NFL success came as part of the San Francisco Forty niners read Options Skiing Twenty, twelve to twenty four. In those three years, he rushed for Fifteen, hundred, seventy, eight yards which okay. I will give credit that impressive gudgeon impressive number. For. More than any other quarterback with the exception of Rush Russell Wilson Cam Newton so let's just call it what it is. He was third rushing quarterback against. It breath. Okay. I will not fall the net. His. Success. He threw more than twice as many touchdown passes interceptions helped him compile eighth best time quarterback rating in the NFL seventy point to over that period. But even then capper nick was one of the lease most. Least Accurate quarterbacks is sixty point one completion percentage ranked twenty third in the NFL and has percentage of off target throws judged on video by espn stats and information ranked eighteen. So. Based on just the stats alone he was a middle of the pack quarterback middle of the pack. Does that mean that he's better than half the other guys absolutely does that mean that that you know the drama he brings? Outweighs his skills is still setting the money in the monetary investment probably. Okay I agree or disagree just on that statement there. I would agree that yeah, he's a middle of the road quarterback. He had some skill. At. That position. That offense. You're right. Would it work somewhere else probably not but that's Changing teams, you learned their offensive scheme you learn what they do best blend yourself into that and you become part of the team not a one man show. that. I, mean you'd have to agree that most had coaches that have half a brain would go sixty, four, sixty point one completion percentage. even if you're even if you're going to do A. A bootleg offense even if you're going to do a boot offense. Play I can. Still going to have to be better than sixty point one. Periods I mean just entered discussion. Quarter, you're talking college level quarterback. Even if you're on a naked, do either one side, you're still depending on receivers tied ends backs to be open at some point that you can actually say, Hey, he's opened easel bewitched of the two weevils need a cheese her who exactly exactly union able to identify and hit those targets or at least give your guys in a position to succeed you know. I'd like to. Bring to Light I. Not Very long after capital started his quest masqueraded by some of justice whatever you WANNA call it only because he got in my mind and correct me if I'm wrong, he got busted out period. That's just the way it is you through Tantrum he got his ass busted will now I gotta cover with this to cover that with this, and then all of a sudden we have one big lie that snowball into the entire solstice thing that's going on currently. You're. Going to look they had to go. He ended up in Washington. In front of US rest. Explaining his side of everything that goes on great. Denver Broncos of whom I am a fan. I it. Does not get into that because. Pirate about that right. That's ultimate digression. Go ahead, John. elway. It had in fact offer Catholic before your contract. said. Hey. COMPLA-. Can come down because it wasn't enough money. Wait a minute. Let's look at your stats a sixty sixty point something or other completion percentage. Yes. You had fifteen hundred yards rushing, which as we've discussed is pretty phenomenal quarterback save. Russell. Cam. Newton. Maybe rg three hundred healthy. That's stretching it buttle throw it in there. Anyway. I. Really. Wanted to see if capital could be plugged into that offense and sell. Well, that's the that's the real trick. Isn't it? I mean? End and let's be clear. He turned it down because the salary was too low, not the money. Or maybe remember correctly, he turned it down because John elway wanted to load the one at the loaded up with incentives and say, okay, you exceed this mark you get ex you this you get what we go to the playoffs and when you get Z. Experience Cetera so wasn't of excellent. Yeah. But exactly to perform at your very best as cut your in the NFL, they don't take ship nothing while the that's when the NFL stands for not for lofts. That and let's be honest. It was not only. Did he had he had to meet performance criteria he had to me behavior criteria, EXAC? elway and the broncos weren't going to stand for this s J. W. S. J. W. Crap. That he's pulling. So let's go back to the article real quick. It'll it'll. It'll really start driving the point home. Okay. So I believe he started kneeling rating was two fifteen. So. Article Goes On. The issues that we were just talking about the increasing. Or decreasing completion percentage decreasing accuracy except sets. Those issues intensified in Twenty fifteen and twenty sixteen amid forty nine ers. Coaching turmoil in talent drain since the start of the twenty fifth season Kapernick ranks get this. Last in the NFL thirty five all five passers in off target percentage is off target twenty, two point six percent of the time which when she is the least accurate quarterback in the. League. As of the twenty. Fifteen. It goes on. Is Complete. Complete is completion percentage ranks number thirty, two at fifty, nine point one. He was still one of the NFL's most productive Shink quarterbacks, ranking number four total yardage over all those years but it didn't mitigate his passing deterioration and this is in my mind. This is the absolute most important line in the yard or ear and an adult. There is no more important attribute for quarterback accuracy especially for a free agent who is shopping himself teams with various schemes. In, the long term a quarterbacks running ability is considered a complimentary skill and one that is story. Fade with age or because of injuries, scrambling ability and arms drank are secondary to whether you can hit the target. That analysis backed up by numbers essentially wreck stay shit out of this current narrative will Cohen Governor never draw. Back. Dinners. Any beds no sorry. Have a fucking job because he sucks. Sex At what he does also, there's a theory going around the going around that it was right about twenty, nine, hundred he met his I don't know if she's still has girlfriend whatever evidently these ideas about radical justice one I'd ever definitely his girlfriend is, is some sort of radical s j w as well, and he was too stupid to either a lever to the side or be not listen door and just agree to disagree on stuff but then again. Go ahead exactly what it is. Power Pussy with exactly exactly and you quite frankly I can't fault them for that because you know that's ninety percent of marriages happen. We'll just we'll just leave at this point. Is that right there? That's You were saying regarding his ability to suck. But it started then I mean he the guy the guy got lazy. He got loud. Through the race card to cover his shit then he couldn't back up his mouth with performance. You know do you your ears? Rocco's fat okay. Let's talk about just a second. Let's talk about Shannon Sharpe just for ten seconds or for a few seconds. Okay. Shannon Sharpe. Is An arrogant prick agree or disagree now When I hang on, hang on that said. Shannon Sharpe liked to run his mouth about a lot of stuff at a lot of different times also true. Yes. Yes. Shannon Sharpe never failed toback his mouth up with his physical actions on field. Also. True. Unless I'm Clinton mistake, it have you seen the. I know he's A. He's a beast. His and by that, I, mean his physique and his skill level we're just unprecedented but you know I do I think running your mouth there's unprofessional Mind that you buy then back it up on the field nut so much. I mean. Go ahead. If I if I remember correctly now, remember this because there is significant events happened in my life sixteen nineteen. broncos are in the midst of the run to Super Bowl thirty two. Tonight game. In Kansas City in Kansas. City. I can remember. Watching a few days later because of recovering from surgery on. Shannon. Sharpe was literally being drug halfway across the field for most of the game by his helmet because he was talking some serious Shit Oh. Yeah. I. Remember Correctly Dr Thomas. If. If I get an incorrect Thomas Yeah. So. So pissed off the guy, he knocking, Kane insane composure in his professionalism in the game. You got what? I think. Say He lit it up. He was like Yeah. That's ten to twelve for. The Gargantuan One, twenty, one, twenty, six, and what two touchdowns. Yeah he was a month. So. All of a sudden sanders our. Love the Guy I've actually met him. Helvin individual. Love Tall. But he can copious amounts of Shit Oh. Yeah. Oh yeah that that man can back his mouth up. Oh Yeah. We have an and. He. End Let's let's break that down from an NFL perspective. So I'm a personnel manager. Okay and I have Shannon Sharpe as a free agent. His name comes across the wire I go holy Fuck Ball sharps available, and I already know that a he's allowed mouth be he likes to talk shit and sees extremely opinionated man but D-. The Guy Backs should have on the field I picked up the phone. I pick up the phone and say Hello Mr Shannon. Trump's lawyer her agent. This is me at the I would like to pay your your plant, a lot of money obscene amount of money to come help us when football game sets. Ended up with the. Exactly for whatever he was with the Ravens what three years. Say but he wanted them for four super bowl with their to. The argument that Colin Kaepernick doesn't have a job because Hashtag grace is complete an utter bullshit. Bullshit and the the fact that Roger Goodell has bought into this Shit Hook Line and sinker is even worse. Okay. You would think that that to be the commissioner of of a National League or National Professional Sports League that race in what eight to ten billion dollars. A year in gross revenue. You have. You'd have to have an IQ above your shoe size. Goodell even that these people that that they're they're professing to support. Social Justice. Wise. He realized that the vast majority of them do not watch the Games couldn't tell you five players in the league and doesn't even know couldn't name five teams lot I mean. She probably I mean. Look at some of the fan base. Did Not tell you the difference three, four, three defense. Yeah don't try to get him to describe the Tampa to. Exactly or various offensive formation. You're the simultaneous simultaneous possession roll which you and I can quote by heart understand completely. Exactly. Our guys we've got another segment coming up right after this brief break. Stay tuned. Midnight Patriot nations spartan with a shameless plug for our new gear shop shop. Dot. MIDNIGHT PATRIOTS DOT COM. T shirts, hats, hoodies, mugs, phone cases, and just about everything else in between we got you covered whether you're looking to embrace your insomnia, show your patriotism or make a liberals headaches blowed. Really, Shop Dot Midnight Patriots, Dot Com, and now back to the show. You know that's that said. I made a prediction in in midnight moment the last night moment and I want to run around wanted to run that by. Not. Only understand that the business portion of the of the game, but also the game itself. So this is going to the business portion now. One. Of the things that you and I both know is that owners very rarely. SAY WHAT THEY THINK Or say or reveal their plans in advance. Okay. I've noticed that the owners have remained. Suspiciously quiet. About the social justice campaign that's currently going on I do disagree with that. I mean like I said, I think Jerry Jones is really the only one that's actually made any sort of statement and it wasn't a very long. I ever Jones ever quiet. What that's that's my point. And say instead of instead of. Me thinks he protests too much. Me think she says nothing for more sinister Okay so I wanted to run this by this is my theory. Okay. Now we've confirmed the the the Monday night compal atrocity from last night. US. Or Susani from two nights ago that. We've confirmed that the viewership was down approximately twenty nine percent. Across the board in that double header. So if we take the two games Monday and the overall ratings of of being down for Sunday you're talking an average of of a twenty percent downer. It's one fifth of the audience of the television audience told the NFL the PISS off. Okay. Considering the the significant financial investment ESPN has for for the right. To. Monday night football. Let's just let's just call that loss unsustainable. Okay. So I am going to ask you to engage your owner brain for just a minute. Okay. So We're GONNA fast forward to the week after the Super Bowl's okay where things are notably notably quite Rosalie quiet. The coaching carousel began and things like that since. Day. Except that, there's going to be a rumor. Going to be a rumor. That the NFL that the owners are considering locking out the players because they want to renegotiate the contracts. And this will come as a surprise to dumb asses in the AT ESPN released. They're going to feign surprise. Okay. And we're going to start hearing things like while the coaches are not gonNa make anymore are putting hiring decisions are the owners are going to. Put a hiring decisions on pause for just We're going to review a few things and Blah Blah Blah. While then we're going to get to Russia's started free agency. And we'RE GONNA. Find out and it's probably going to be one of the one of the What's The guy's name? Remember his name. One of the reporters Schefter Adam schefter because he always breaks up he's. Probably. GonNa be schefter becomes. We have confirmed reports, the owners who are going to lock out the players affected nine am tomorrow or whatever. Okay. Now what's going to end up happening is this. The overall I would say, the overall revenue is going to decline somewhere in the area of twenty percent across the before the Lee across the. Across the season. Okay. Now again does just a prediction it might be higher. I hope it's higher until they stop dish this personally but. This is what's going to happen. You're going to get a massive ratings ratings cut. Even in the Super Bowl. Which means revenue is going to be down roughly thirty percents. Okay. What they're gonNA say is this is an unprecedented drop in revenue and the the losses are unsustainable. They're going to have to renegotiate the contracts. The players are GONNA have to take less money and this time the the ownership is going to be able to show concrete. The because of the drop in television revenue in Jersey sales and everything else. That they're going to have to renegotiate the contract. They're going to vote on removing Goodell as the commission. You're actually they're gonNA, they're gonNA end up forcing him out but the way it's GonNa play out this players are to get locked out. There's going to be a review of the deal of the of the current Labor Labor Agreement. The new agreement is GONNA. Have a significantly lower. Revenue Pool total that that the players are going to get. And they're going to have conduct they're going to have enhanced conduct policy which include the jewel stand for the national anthem. You will not hiding locker room for it. And you're going to we're going to not endorse anyone as far as any sort of political failure, your ideology on the field, and if you do not only will your contract be terminated but you'll be you'll be on the breadline by your suspended for a year. Now maybe the suspended for year won't come to pass but. Engage your own our brain for just a second and then look at the strike years that came up and you tell me how how how. Or how far I'll fight on that. Will. Allow me to. Dive into this plan I mean. Here we go. I am an owner of a NFL team. Meaning I have had to. Put Out. Let's use an arbitrary figure five hundred million dollars cash right upfront. Chooses five hundred. Half a billion. Cool. I'm. Glad. Yeah. Five hundred million dollars up front in order to gain my team have somewhere to play. The voted on passed and approved by the NFL. As either an expansion team whatever then. To, Cherry pick the other teams around here so I can build my team. In hopes that a I get a return on investment. That said if I'm going to dump five, hundred, million dollars out. A team equipment place play contracts that are stretched for X. number of years. This mice guaranteed this much at a signing bonus this much. Not. including the money paid to the team from the NFL for reaching a wildcard round, a divisional round championship round, and ultimately the Super Bowl. There are incentives paid to the teams by the NFL for attaining postseason plum. Yeah So that said with everything that goes on here. Currently we're martyring. Convicted felons we are. Using the NFL. As a soapbox. As an owner. would. Say? Okay. I can understand. The Point I understand where you're coming from I understand yes. Shit doesn't like this doesn't need to happen. It does there's nothing I can physically do about it personally except point out to you that you're not them. You are a multimillionaire more working your way to that point because of your talent, your skill and your ability play the game price. You as a athlete. well-fed well trained. Best shape, your ever loving life you have a house bigger than anything you've ever grew up in, you've got cars for days all these other things but. You need to remember that you are entertainer You're not a politician. So, that said. When to go into your point? After the Super Bowl. Until they actually have one right. That two weeks later, when everything's died down in the in the winter sprayed is over and losers or duck griping and the coaches players have made their way to their respective all. Wherever. That may be they're probably their private castles. Yes don't don't live in a castle guarded by you know dogs bigger than. Most people's. Cars. Were we will probably see as you said. Well you know revenue was down. Because of viewership is down across the board anywhere between currently twenty twenty, two percent to encroaching upon thirty percent. For Games you know TV, rights merchandise sales are going to be down. People are actively boycotting across those media and they're actually making their voice known by not watching. All of a sudden if we were to take thirty two current teams. And we look at. All the owners in this how much money they have? Now if we were to take thirty percent of total investment apart. As a conglomerate figure. We're talking a loss of probably and I would strong. Guess. Somewhere in the neighborhood of anywhere between two and two point, five, billion dollars while even go you want all you can go one better I think since the economy has basically picked up I mean you gotta remember the day to ten billion was during the Obama Konami which was one of the worst economies history. Okay. So that said you gotta figure that now it's probably going to be between ten and twelve. So if you have a twenty percent revenue law, if you have a almost thirty percent, you're talking about three billion dollars. That's a three billion dollar loss. So even if even if you spread that across thirty two teams, you're talking about what? Three hundred, million dollar loss per franchised. and. So and a lot of the smaller market. Good. So again, as an owner with Joan, arbitrary figure of five, hundred, million dollars starting I just lost seventy five percent of your or yeah of my revenue that I put into have an NFL team. Well, exactly. Well Number One and number two what anybody thinks that now? Okay. We all understand the cats at the revenue sharing For Those of us that are initiated, understand understand the the the reason for revenue. Okay. That's that's a given. Okay. Even still a thirty percent cut to that revenue devastates small-market teams devastate. Okay that's. Cleveland Cleveland Cambe that's Detroit. Well, I think Detroit is a bit bigger, but I catch meaning. into. Jacksonville. Flow? Buffalo Alright. That unders. Anyway. They're too big but no I hear you here's here's here's the thing the smaller market teams are going to move may if this continues maybe on the verge of bankruptcy and and if you really don't think that the NFL owners will lock out the players to avoid that. I just think everybody's so naive that they shouldn't even be a football fan you can. Football I in my opinion, these played the players and Adele are cutting the owners throats and I don't think the owners appreciate it number one and number two I. Think the owners are more in touch with their demographic their fan base style people want to believe i. don't say that they like their fan base because obviously as the executive class billionaires general ended the tend to hate working people or at least have a disdain for them. Okay. But the point being is that it's unsustainable model for them to go forward to continue this crap. Of K, it's it's absolutely ludicrous. So I think about beat that horse to death did you have anything to add on just on that? Final thought regarding that as an owner is a businessman I yeah exactly. Exactly. His businesses to? Yes he owns the team but as a business owner, you're always looking to. CRUISER BOTTLE BLONDE Increase but also you know they've got, they've got a commitment. You know what I mean I mean the bottom line is there are associated with raising revenue to pay Patrick mahomes half a billion dollars over the next. Seven years. Of. The point the point is this is that there are costs associated developing that revenue and win the players behavior or when when the when the the players union in the League encourages behavior that is deleterious to to that mission. Then what are the owners supposed to do? Gordon exactly. They locked the doors take resigning before we open this and then players you're GONNA WE'RE GONNA have to do a big restructure here. Sorry. You know this is this is not you? Not You know you're not this side of the world you guys are on the upper echelon. Of money you have succeeded in. On yourself up by your bootstrap for lack of terminology, you have made it playing a game that you love passion for three enforce your point duty not only are they a privileged class? Okay. Let I verified this I verify this last night. I made a statement that that. The NFL, the people on the NFL minimum as in rookies that that you know what we're undrafted free agents, right that are somehow made the squad, which is more powerful MAZAFA. A No experience. Rookie. Signed as a free agent this year in the League makes a minimum of six hundred, thousand dollars. Six hundred, ten, thousand dollars I then went to the Department of Labor's website guess what the average household income for Americans is as twenty twenty. Sixty, one, thousand, three, hundred. Yes. They working person would take ten eleven years to make. They're making six months show and this is not this is not an insult. I'm only going to use the label for for effect. Hacks in the NFL make ten times. The average working family does and they dare fucking lecture us about what our values should be faulk them. Big F what. Exactly. With a with capitalize all letters with with several exclamation points at the end. So that said I. Underlined and and I tell us is never. That's that said, I I wanNA give credit where it's due also understand that you know. What did I just go off on the NFL to you know to to to the end up with surprise we'll tell you why because You know even in the worst of situations, even even in the darkest night, there are rays of sunshine out gather are rays of light and I want to heap praise on two particular players, and these are the only two players. That I'm aware of have done this if any of you out there. Needed to midnight Patriot nation are aware of more please let us know. So we can give them their just desserts in their props. I want to give particular a credit to a hundred in the way of of the of the Pittsburgh steelers. Mr Villanueva is a former army ranger That said he made a big splash stirred shit storm by doing the right thing. I'm not going to get into the to the criminal that that the that the steelers. We're trying to honor Norma GonNa try to justify it didn't happen there but. Mr Vienna wave. Did something very classy He caped over the criminals name and he chose to honor sergeant first class all when cash. Now I believe I'm saying that correctly cut me some slack by brute if I if I. A brutalized his name that is not the intention. To say how I believe it's spelled. But sergeant first, class all, when. Cash. who was killed in Afghanistan? And I I, WANNA. I WANNA take. The chance to really You know he preys on on Mr Villain away for for going against the grain and for honoring in a true fallen hero on instead of instead of the criminal. So. Well on on that. The next one and probably the biggest honors of the latest give to the Jaguars tight tyler effort. I think I'm saying his name correctly also I don't think it's effort at the. But again, please forgive me if I've Jaguars fans if wrecked his name to. That being said that were I for also You know went against the grain he chose to honor the life of David Dorn David Dorn for those of you that that don't know was retired police officer. I believe it was Saint Louis. He. police chief Sir about that. He was retired police chief and he. was acting on behalf of a friend to go and check is Friends Pawn Shop. And he was gunned down he was killed Doing doing that by a felon in possession of firearm each shot this this legitimate euro From behind in the back of the head, which was incredibly cowardly act. ADORNS widow. was featured at the Republican National Convention. So those be the she told the heart wrenching story and As much as I am I gotTa tell you broaden orphee side, but he loved me misty. I was just her story about David's life was very touching and the impact on her family were simply crush. So I wanNA other drove I drove home the point. Your choice exact life exactly as what makes you? Exactly you know people people come from from bad situations and rise to great heights in as far as I know. This is the only country in the world that that can happen. Where you can make what you want of your own life. Okay. The biggest prison that we have in this country, the prison in our own minds. So A. Big Praise to do Mr Bean away and Mr for will done. I still have the continue my. My boycott because of my standards but you gentlemen have shown that there is a a ray of light in darkness. So Phoenix where you have anything to add or have we beat this to death. By by Pres for. There are people in the NFL that are serving of. Respect for me for one. Not because of their wallet or their house or their cars. But they chose stand for the national anthem. As. SOMEONE WHO Leaves in their country. Leaves in the American dream all though little hard to attain sometimes. The anthem regardless of anybody's political stance. The gentleman across the nation. And the NFL NBA MLB. I stand with you guys choose to stand in honour your country. That is. The way it is your will said. Anybody else wants that is your choice. I. Respect your choice I don't like it but I do respect it. But I stand with the gentleman who chooses stanton honor the country, the greatest country on this earth. Gives them every opportunity to excel in anything that they choose to? Like professional football or professional athletics exactly. I think it. I think it's worth mentioning here. I know we said we beat the source of, but I wanNA bring up another topic to. Weird Midnight Patriots all of us. May disagree with with what someone says, but we would fight to our desk to protect their their right to say those words. That being said I think one of the other things that the public is piss pot tired of is the privileged wealthy assholes. Being able to have different sets of rules at their workplace than we do. In the Corporate World in William and most smaller companies you do not have. You do not have freedom of speech. Okay. You will be shown the door if you bring up politics religion, etc etc. Okay. With social justice causes or otherwise. They can show you the door. Okay and I don't think I don't think it's Ok these. Use Their their platform on the field or in any way while a uniform to promote their agenda. Okay. Now, I think you and I would agree with this if the NFL Players Association wants to get together and host either a live event or televised event. when they are not playing and they're out of uniform. And they want to tackle these issues donate money to causes give away money whatever I think that would be a perfectly acceptable display. That's fine. Okay. But I think the reason they don't is they know that the cause is a loser. Okay. They're not willing to risk their own money you know to they're not willing to put their money with their mouths are in order to have their protests but but you know somehow everybody else should just shut up and and honor was they're trying to do and I think that that is excellent. You know policy at its finest end. America's PISS POT tired of turning channel I. think that's a big factor as well. As your thoughts unfortunately mean here to. Drive your point. I could see. Getting together having one big party fundraiser l. have running toe board. Hey, you know we're raising all this money great or even several. Yeah Go. But the reason but the reason they're doing it on television is because they can reach a mass audience all at once. But. They haven't had. They had the NFL network. If. The shows a winner, they could sell it to their to their allies in the media. WHO's to say ESPN would cover it. You know for God's sake ESPN has the SP one of the worst ward Joe's ever. Okay and if they want to go up to that into a social justice show fine. Go right ahead or create when like it again. Fine. Or if you know even Amazon or Netflix wants to pick up something about you know the S J W 'cause in the NFL an interview players follow players around their charitable work while they advance these causes grace go ahead I mean I think what they'll find his a there's no interest in be nobody cares they approach it that way that we far less backlash in their their incomes would be far safer than if they continue down this path. the ratings would actually come back to a more normal. That's where I'm talking about I. Mean there are only cutting their own throats by doing it the way they're doing it that that's all I have to say. So that's a wrap for this midnight. Mama we we went really long hopefully provided you get some insights, maybe some food for thought. Ob Spartan in Im with Phoenix, and we're just reminding you one last time in forever.

"So. Gardner has welcome to Latino rebels radio. I. Thank you so much for having. So I have a lot to talk to you about and I know we are going to talk about covert and incarceration and health but. Obviously this week I think the entire nation was shook with what has happened in Minneapolis and I and I just wanted to get your thoughts about the death of George, Floyd or how? Trauma and how outrage actually? I WANT WANNA. Get your two takes like how you. How do you feel like looking being in a someone? This week in the middle of Pandemic when this is happening, but also just like the health implications of constant trauma, and I just had a really I'm from privilege, and I'm having problems with this, so I'm going to get your thoughts i. Yeah. We're in the same boat I. Today's my first day as President at Marguerite Casey Foundation. Got The right day. And I feel and. On. The one hand really devastated not only. Because of the murder of George. Floyd also because of the murder of Brianna Taylor, because I'm not of Tony mcdaid that. We are living in witnessing. Sort of the constant assassination of black people. By a state that does not value their lives and I'm really torn up about it I on the one side I feel. Like my sector, like philanthropy is often at the edges on not willing to be abolitionist, not willing to call on not only police accountability, imagining supporting organizers in leaders in our communities to imagine a world where detention and incarceration and policing aren't the only ways that we resolve the issues that we have with each other. and on the other side you know we really quickly as an institution, we put out. Six hundred thousand dollars to leading black led organizations in Tallahassee in Minneapolis. In Louisville. That are at the front lines, both of the abolition, the fight for abolition and and to try to address the issues that are happening today, and so the health consequences for all of our families for all of us is a extreme like. How can we imagine a different world a different future where being killed every day when brothers and sisters are being killed everyday when our aunts and uncles in MOMS and dads are held in detention and put into prison when our political leaders are. Corporate leaders are nonprofit leaders Fine the courage to actually step up and say we deserve better. Our families deserve better. Yeah, I'm devastated Julio. Frenk I I'm really glad you. I wanted to ask you that question and I. Really I really appreciate you like putting it in the context of what you do because I do think. In this world sometimes we're taught to you know. We can only stay in one lane, or and I think you know even me as a journalist like. I've struggled this week. And in the context of like Cohen teen in the context of what you wanted to talk about as well which I also think you know. It's funny because we just published on Friday. Three letters from migrant detainees inside of a immigration jail in Illinois. That, twenty, trans queer weblog reached out and we. We published their words. He's people are saying these conditions. You know I am worried I am. I'm not getting any help. I'm being dehumanized and we just decide well. These these letters came out so there's a risk because you're like they WANNA come out in public, but then when you come in public, it's like. It's a criminalized system. People are speaking out. Talk to me how this is interconnected in the in the work that you do because you're like the reason why we wanted to talk about what you're saying you. You mentioned abolitionist them. You've mentioned. Detention jails, and how this is how society is just not getting it especially now, especially during covert so. How do you begin to connect it all? Yeah, you know philanthropy is really weird, and on the one side I am clear that philanthropy isn't. Better of a functioning democracy and are robust and fare economy right that philanthropy exists mostly because he's our tax dollars that are not. That are awarded. And rich people, and then they're rich institutions get to be the arbiters of who is deserving of resources in a moment. What ideas are deserving of being lifted up? What leaders should be resourced, right? I. I I am clear that I'm like in A. that. I'm holding contradiction right that I believe in a functioning stage with the safety net that taxes are most. Wealthy at the benefit of all of us and I work at an institution that as as been created because of these failures and. I think that. Many of my peers in philanthropy have given up. The ability to actually contest for power to use these positions and the resources that we have Julio. We are one institution right? We have seven hundred over seven hundred million dollars in an endowment. That we get to us not only to try to supplant government or take the place of government, not only to create a band aid on the cancer that our communities are facing. We can use these resources to support leaders organizations to start to create evidence that our families can be more powerful to start to create evidence that our government can actually for us that it could be more responsive than it can look like us. That I can talk and feel like us. We can create evidence that our economy doesn't have to work only at the expense of our most vulnerable workers right. And many I think many of my peers don't see that

B. L. thing they're they're thirty million panels in thirty years or ten years actually Nike Walmart three am I keel over did have a couple issue as with their panels but yeah they they they they get in you know it's it's far as locally if anybody were to ever get there Google maps out on the phone like you said I I kia you know we do have a couple of them in the South Florida area here this one just on down the road here on five ninety five and is completely covered it has a about a megawatt on the roof and they all do you know and that's that's something that they've done for years and that's our independence of of any of the you know local restrictions or anything all of their buildings do you have a solar on the roof obviously apple made their huge campus you know what solar on the roof Google has the same thing at all and a lot of these companies who are smart with their money and that's the that's the whole trick your guys they would never rent you know a huge part of their income in something that they could out you know and maybe it's difficult to own a house but but we do we do because we put a small down payment down we gather our credit and jump through the hoops and play by the rules and we can get a four five or six hundred thousand dollar loan just like we could for you know a boater really expensive vehicle or something like that and then you spend a lot of time paying it off you know but with the finance capabilities of this you could essentially without having to put all these things on the line get a are renewable energy payment cheaper than what you're spending right now it really really makes a lot of sense and if if you have big Bucks like these guys here you can reach into your own pocket buy the equipment and see the fastest return on investment possible but they all know that in three four five years they're gonna be sitting pretty and seeing huge huge dividends on

I paying six hundred thousand dollars donlevatar, let's monitor my tone in this segment as I continue to get irritated by the unrelenting waves of stupidity that lap upon my shorts. Stugatz. Sorry. These live at our show with Stu gods on ESPN radio. So our next guest has put in a good amount of work into the art of making a documentary about Richard Pryor. I hope he doesn't hold against us. How poorly read all of that was by Stu God. Why would he STAN Van Gundy is with us and stand I'm just before we start with Jesse James Miller you've seen the IM Richard Pryor documentary? What pulled you toward it? And what takeaways did you have? Well, what pulled me toward it was an interest in Richard Pryor, one of the great comedians of our time. And and I knew a little bit about his background. But I mean, an incredible story of his life and. And his upbringing, and then his professional life and everything else. I mean, I it's a phenomenal documentary. So Jesse James Miller, the director is with us. Now, I am Richard Pryor premiers Friday, ten pm paramount network. There's a lot been written about Richard Pryor there been films done on Richard Pryor. Jesse James Miller. Thank you for joining us. How was yours different? Well, that's a good question. Guys. Thanks for having me on by the way, you know. I just tackled it as much from his perspective as possible and trying to give him his his own voice. So whenever you know, we used albums we are five as much as possible just to to give him his his do say in his own film. What surprised you as you did some of the research and reporting on this? Well, I mean, like STAN I knew I knew a lot about him. But the he's so layered as a person that the farther, you went the farther, you went into this kind of world with that that explained his later sort of lapses into into heroin, and and the drugs and the women and stuff. So it it made more sense to me the more you you you you dived into his into his past. What were the parts? I imagine part of that growing up in a brothel, right? Yeah. I mean, it's far more complicated than that. Just the family dynamics. And and also the, you know, the the white culture he grew up within as a comedian to was was constraining as well. So there's a lot a lot of angles to him as a person then his genius showed how he overcame a lot of those things..

And this is not really do anything for you, tax wise now necessarily, but it can help you down the road when you take the money out, and you have to make sure that you are also covered with other life insurance if you need life insurance. Yeah. I would suggest if you're forty three and you're married you at least and you're making. Three hundred fifty and now, maybe they make it between the two of them. I don't know. But either way you're probably gonna want to have some form of life insurance. And most likely you're not going to cover the entire need with this type of policy right because we all running the death benefit down. We're tailoring the death benefit based on the premium or putting in we're not tailoring it to go as high as possible. Like a life insurance agent light because that's how they maximize their commission. I'd say bring the death benefit doubt as low as possible based on current tax law. So that we maintain the nice tax treatment of these types of policies, but reduce the internal expenses as much as possible. It's more of a tax preference. Savings vehicle in this in this instance, then life insurance, although there is life insurance there if you need it a better plan might be also to add if he hasn't already made he probably has some type of term policy Justice for where the actual death benefit matters in this case, right then so maybe he can put in ten thousand dollars a year which buys them three or four hundred thou-.

"Talking about a number of different things on today's show. So far one was getting money out of your IRA with paying little to no taxes on it. So you need to know the new tax laws the you deductions and so on. Reducing fees. And that's something we're very big on. I'm gonna give you another example of that in just a moment, so reducing or eliminating fees. And then, of course, not losing money. We never liked to lose money and the programs that we utilize at the principal retirement group. You're my clients don't lose money. So if the market takes a nosedive, you're not losing any money now with all of that said, let me give you one example on fees. This happened a couple of years ago. Very nice lady came to one of my classes. She said, oh, I've just retired. And I did this. I transferred money from my 4._0._1._K to this IRA my advisors been with me for years. He takes really good care of me. I mentioned a couple of things and. And she, you know, the things that she mentioned a couple of red flags jumped up in front of me. And she also mentioned she said, you know, I said, what are you? What are the fees on that account? And she said the fees are a thousand dollars per quarter. I said, okay. So you're paying four thousand dollars a year in fees. She said, yes. And I I gotta tell you. I don't like one bit of that. I think I'm paying too much money and fees. I said, you know, based on what you're telling me, I think your fees are higher than four thousand. She goes. No, no. It's on the statement. I see it. I said I understand. I know what's on the statement. But what you have described to me costs more. If you would be open. I will do a cost analysis for you. And we'll take a look and see what you're really paying fees, and then you can take this back and address it with your current advisor. And she said, okay. Well, we did the analysis. And again, the first thing I said was don't shoot the messenger, and her fees were actually this is a very large. The IRA was around six hundred thousand dollar raves huge and her fees were twenty two thousand dollars a year. Twenty two thousand not the four thousand she thought they were which she believed was already too high. And she was in tears, just absolutely interior. She was shocked dismayed her disappointed. I mean it goes on and on poor lady. She was broken hearted and furious that she was paying this much money in fees. It had never been disclosed to her and. And she had great faith and trust in her adviser. And now that was broken. That's I said I said look take the one page take the cost page put it in front of them. And just say is this correct? Which it was. So anyway, now with that said, we do this all the time for our clients. So if you'd like to learn more about what you're paying in fees. Give us a call if you'd like to learn how to get money out of your IRA and pay less money in taxes little to no money in taxes. Again, give us a call.

That process of these. People and probably a lot of people listening they might. Be saying to themselves, hey that, kind of sounds like me, you know we, met these people, awhile back they came, to a workshop they were in their, early sixties nice people they were probably three or four years away from retirement. At, that time they had about a million dollars in retirement savings their 401K's in IRA's the, good news is they had house that had no mortgage they had a house that was worth seven hundred thousand dollars that they were, so proud because they work so hard to pay off me just paid The mortgage balance that's the American dream the American dream absolutely they had a. Little, cottage up in Kennebunkport Maine that's worth about three? Hundred, and fifty thousand also no mortgage which they loved and they want to keep that in a family.

And they told hey i want to protect that maine cottage phil that's when you came in i wanna have an income stream that's where i came in they said i wanted to continue to grow my money and hedge inflation that's where my partners john and ryan came in so after that first meeting we were able to take that information and then go back to them in the second meeting which is generally about three weeks later and we present and find them what we call the three sixty five retirement plan and the first thing that we covered was hey you have these assets now let's make sure that we continue grow them protect them bullets portion out some of that money and have a specific outcome for that money which was to provide them essentially a a home-made pension plan because these people could not retire solely on social security just wasn't going to be enough so we were able to protect them build an income plan for them and then a portion of their money they wanted to still continue to grow so as a full service Retirement planning company my partner John Conley my other partner Ryan Marston their job and what, they do a very good job at is helping you grow that money to hedge inflation to keep up with the Joneses. You know to earn a nice rate of, return, and then the last component was they had like twenty year old wills, Phil I think maybe all the documents are outdated so you able to help them with that, and also protect remain cottage so we stepped right in we talked about essentially the primary home making sure that that was protected which we did with. What we call revocable trust planning was, still there's now with that vacation, home that was so dear to them that they wanted their children their grandchildren. Everyone to experience those wonderful Ever, going to sell, that house, never going. To sell up, they wanted to make sure that was protected. If they went to the nursing home because a second home automatically has to be sold if someone goes to, a nursing, we can't save it so you have. To do pre planning to protect it so with that we move that. Into, what we call the nursing home protection trust, that would be protected after the five year look back and a lot. Of people know about the. Five year basically it is you do, something after five years it's protect, okay okay so we got that off the. Table and safe and, they were a static there was so happy that that would be there for the generations to, come so, if you think about it Wh- what didn't we cover we covered everything right the. Three sixty five retirement plan we, were able to cover the show them how they can have a portion, that money produce an income stream the. Pay. That essential in lifestyle expenses so that's taking care of my partner John and a reminder partner Ryan was able to take a portion of that money continued growth in. Them because it's important to.

"Houses it doesn't matter whether it's a man or a woman who's paying the alimony i think that for a period of time rehabilitators really have bella tatum alimony is good i agree but i think you know women want equality so not the last woman but i also i also do not agree that the style that that they've been accustomed to should not be considered in other words if you're living in a you know six hundred thousand dollar home and the couple of divorces you can't expect a spouse who is going to be receiving the alimony to change the type of home that they live in i be there has to be concessions all around let's say for instance hundred thousand dollar home in the each get three hundred dollars three hundred thousand dollars from their six hundred thousand dollar home why should he have to pay more to get her back up to the level when he doesn't have that level anymore well it depends on what her financial situation at like i said you know if she here's financial situation at absolutely does are the ones who the court wants to determine what the alamo and he's going to be based on whoever is making the most set whatever salary is the person making the most money let's make this real simple why should she expect after divorce that she should have the same level of home well wouldn't he no not necessarily had to sell the house to satisfy the alimony why would he the party expect to have everything the same after a huge life change like a divorce and that's not what i'm that's not what i'm saying i mean certainly there there's gotta be confessions all around the person you all right thank for example a woman if she's used to going out and buying you know three hundred dollar pair of she's certainly can't expect that same type of lifestyle after divorce you know divorce there are changes that happen you know through divorces financially it's a it's a financial you know divorces are are you know atrocious standing change the lifestyle of both of them and not just one of them yeah the lady before i don't think anyone has an entitlement to be expected to receive a a longterm paycheck from either spouse someone worked their whole life yeah they're going to separate the pension experts they do the courts do that but i don't think man or woman should have to pay for someone else arrested life especially if they're able to work even a minimum wage job to get back out into the workforce divorces about starting over so everyone has to start over i agree with you and times of this has come up i've got an email now you sound so cold harden while i'll tell you what this is not a man woman thing even because when that whole alimony reform movement was going on years ago we were big part of that i remember reading i think it's about ten percent of alimony awards are actually from a woman to a guy these days i mean still it's overwhelming lead man pain to the woman but it's not a necessarily a gender thing it's a fairness thing and i don't care who you are your gender should not mean that you are less capable a woman is just as capable of taking care of herself as one of the proponents of that reform was married to a phd who chose not to work after the divorce had to pay her alimony even though her earning potential.

"Riskier time to retire because out of six hundred thousand dollars it's not that easy to generate forty thousand for the next thirty years so i don't know i i would not advise you if that's what you have to spend i know somebody will so just spend less money but if if you're counting on forty thousand bucks plus your social security and your social security say forty five thousand that's eighty five thousand bucks a year and you've budgeted in eighty five thousand bucks a year i don't think you can get there from here i guess that if you postpone taking social security for the next four and worked two out of those four and then all you had to do was drain eighty thousand dollars out of your portfolio you're likely to make that on your six hundred thousand bucks so then you'd be going into retirement with about six hundred thousand dollars and you've got forty five thousand coming in or excuse me sixty one thousand coming in from social security now all you need is nineteen thousand bucks a year from six hundred thousand dollar portfolio that's more like it that's three percent even with inflation you could now take four percent you'd be within the four percent rule limitations so to speak so mad if you can work two more years and postpone taking your social for four i think you're in business but the hanging up now as dangerous.
