There Is a Dearth of Courage in America Unlike Ever Before
"All of you are can play a part and will play a part in what is missing most in this country and so obviously were missing lots of things right now in our country or missing president. You know we're missing integrity truth but the thing that is missing all of you are playing a role in fixing every single day is courage. Courage is lacking in our country. Unlike any other time that i personally have seen an honestly in the last sixty years and the reason why courage is lacking is because so many people are afraid to do. What they know is the right thing. Because they're afraid of the downside georgia's patton who is one of the greatest men ever to live said. Moral courage is the most necessary yet. Absent characteristic and men now every single person here. Tonight is here on a friday night where you could be doing something else because you understand that. The country's falling apart quickly you're losing the nation at you once understood that you want to be part of and you want to do something about it but all of you here as a young conservative. You understand that this comes at a price and you're willing to do the right thing regardless of what that price might be. How many of you raise your hands for the adults to see. We'll be graded differently because you are a conservative in class. Yeah every single hand goes up and so what. You're willing to pay that price. You're willing to do the right thing. So here's what i do. I want to encourage all of you to start the speech that every single time. You're on these campuses. And you're starting a new chapter or your tabling or recruiting or doing voter registration. You're playing a role in doing the most important thing that we need to do. In our nation
California Has a Lot of Recall Attempts, and Not Just for Governors
"The city of los angeles alone. There are currently three efforts underway right now to recall members of the los angeles city council and the tone of the l. a. times here is telling quote another day another recall notice in the city of los angeles. You need a grand total of five voters to get together to begin the process of calling for a recall for los angeles official five voters. Literally you can start a recall with the number of people you can fit in your camry and it's not just lay across the state of california. There are more than seventy elected officials who are facing the threat of recall just this year. Because that's how they do it in california california asked for recalls all the time you can mount a recall campaign against any statewide elected official for any reason at all if you can achieve the grand results of collecting signatures from just twelve percent of people. Who voted in the last election for that seat. Not twelve percent of registered voters but twelve percent of the number of people who voted in the last election for that seat specifically. That's all you need to be able to get that. Statewide elected official. Put up for recall as low bars. Go this is kind of so low. It just sits there on the floor and invites you to walk on it. And so every governor in california for the past sixty years as faced at one attempt to recall them And you will of course recalled the successful two thousand and three recall of democrat. California governor gray davis. That's how we ended up. Bizarrely with governor arnold schwarzenegger for a hot but now the republicans are trying again with this. Recall attempt that they are mounting against democratic governor gavin. Newsom the polls close tomorrow tonight Excuse me close tomorrow night at eight. Pm pacific time
Will You Step up for Those Who Don't Want to Get Vaccinated?
"And for the people that have been vaccinated out there maybe willingly. Are you going to start to step up and fight for the people that don't want to get vaccinated. You know what i have found is so many conservatives that have been vaccinated there silent on this issue they really don't care and it goes to show that the circle of tyranny gets smaller and smaller and we saw this exact same thing happened with the tech companies. The exact same thing the same thing with tech companies when so many conservatives are like who cares if alex jones gets gets kicked off of apple and twitter and facebook and youtube. It's not me. Alex is alex and we don't like alice and that's that was the wrong way to go about it. That's the last type strategy and eat me last.

Remembering Climate Change, a Message From the Year 2071
"Twenty two thousand. As we're a crux in human history they began with the first pandemic a slap to the face of everyone as they had to acknowledge that they were a single civilization on a single biosphere utterly dependent on science to keep them alive. Civilization is a fragile thing and although people started the twenties hoping to ignore that profound truth even after the first pandemic the great heat waves of twenty twenty three torched any such hope humans cannot survive combinations of high heat and high humidity that rise above an index temperature called wet bulb thirty five and that year the wet bulb thirty six events in india in southeast asia and in the american midwest killed so many more people than the first pandemic that it was made clear to everyone things simply had to change the arrival of the second pandemic put an exclamation mark on all that the question that desperate point was could things change could humanity stop it's destructive ways and restore balance to its relationship to its biosphere crucially. Could it lower the global average temperature of the earth in time to avoid killing millions more people more animals and indeed entire species looking back from our perspective sixty years later this of course looks possible because they did but it was by no means a sure thing you have to imagine what it felt like at the time when panic filled the air and no one could be sure. Success was even physically possible many declared that humanity was doomed. This is why that decade gets called the turbulent twenties or the terrifying twenties only much later did some historians began to call it the terrific twenties or even the roaring twenties although that's a historians joke and as usual a bad one it was not at all like the roaring twenties of a century before it was much stranger than that in these critical years lessons learned in the first pandemic put to use. The scientific community had rallied to meet that crisis in an unprecedented way. Unleashing a burst of cooperation and creativity never seen before and now they did it again.

On a Date With Reverend Jesse and Jacqueline Jackson
"It was a bitter cold november morning. When we got to the airport we were heading out to chicago. My old stomping grounds to visit reverend. Jesse jackson and jacqueline jackson not only are these two civil rights icons his work with martin luther king her lifelong activism. But they've been married throughout all yearly sixty years. I was really looking forward to it only problem. Our flight from new york was severely delayed and we were five hours late for our date. It was awful. I really hate being late for anything but even though it was already evening by the time we landed. They said come on over anyway. I've known them for decades and that's the kind of generous people. They are The children well. They all still talk to me. That's a good side. Jesse was diagnosed with parkinson's disease several years ago but despite his condition his spirits were lively and jackie. She's always full of life. As we settled in jesse began to recall their early days in college. She was a into modern dance and she had been librar- and beautiful begun.

What Is the U.S. Doing to Help Cuba?
"Get to it with our first topic. Which is actually about the historic protests in cuba where thousands of people took to the streets all across the country amid an economic crisis in food shortages exacerbated by the corona virus pandemic. In the last few days we've seen the government in cuba restrict internet access and block most social media sites. Although from what i read. Twitter is still like bobbin in cuba because the government uses twitter and also there were reports of over one hundred people who have been arrested or missing and that actually is. According to amnesty international and at least one person has died in clashes with police on wednesday. The president of cuba miguel diaz canal announce that they would lift restrictions to allow travelers to bring food and medicine into cuba from abroad. There is also an admission by him saying that his government could have done better with these protests that was interesting meanwhile back in the united states i feel like a comic book like meanwhile back at the white house on thursday president joe biden call. Cuba quote failed state and condemn their government's actions. We also know that the us has a role in this as there has been a decades old. I mean more than sixty years trade embargo by the united states against cuba which essentially prevents any business between the countries didn't back to nineteen sixty two k. So this has become an american tradition. Now the embargo just what it is. Yeah right you know what i'm saying. So but then the other thing is during the trump administration and this is what i find interesting. There were more sanctions put on cuba under trump and flight and remittances from family members in the us to cuba were even further restricted by the bynum ministrations. Pretty much has done. Nothing since biden has come into office. Nothing's really changed when it comes to cuba which you would think by now you know if we all remember obama he was like. Let's lift the embargo. You know what i mean. It was like you're in that administration. Joe right but according to the vitamin administration. They said that they are reviewing these policies but they've yet to reverse. Any of them are fabulous intern. Sarah her shandor spoke with an i guests. She has been on. Itt before seventy nine three goes who is a correspondent for political and somebody is of cuban-american descent and she has been reporting on cuba. This week and sabrina talked about the government's suppressive tactics like cutting internet access. And what cubans are hoping for so. Let's listen connecting for people has been a difficult. There's friends that. I haven't heard from in days that i know went out for the protests in there is that frustration anxiety about were. They beat in where they arrested. Are they missing an. It's hard to connect with people at this moment but a lot of people feel a level of frustration and desperation. That i had not heard before i mean. People have been tired of the dictatorship in cuba. But i will actually say from my perspective. Who was born and raised in cuba has been in exile in the united states for the majority of her life at this point. She's ninety one and she is optimistic. That change can happen. I mean her attitude about this is it can't stay this way forever and that these human rights can be violated forever. People can't be going hungry in dying on the streets from the pandemic without access to a hospital without access to medicine let it cannot continue that way indefinitely so that if it doesn't happen this time it has to happen at some point
"sixty years" Discussed on Higher Journeys with Alexis Brooks
"Are these factions still up to their old tricks or are they relenting. Finally you'd think with what's happening. We're talking about you know. I just noted two articles one Cbs online article headline pentagon confirms authenticity. A video showing an identified flying objects at al. Not the i heard of it but we news new york times article headline this is something a little bit different. But it's still coming from the same source. They are not alone. Ufo reports surged in the pandemic. And if i can. I'm gonna put up a visual for both of those articles steak and check it out in the link The provisions that was tucked into the last covid nineteen stimulus. Bill to let An unclassified report come down Mandated in one hundred and eighty days. Were now looking at june. I heard there's been some pushback on that. What's happening here. All relative to what you just said kathleen. Well i think that the government just has finally decided that the majority of americans believe that this is real probably millions of people have had sightings thousands or hundreds of thousands have reported them over the years. And it's it's time. I think two four slow disclosure and i think that the reason for this is that Louis alesando who ran the tip program went public and he had ghosts three videos the tic tac and began ole another one and the navy pilots came forward highly trained many many hours of flying years as Navy officers credible incredibly intelligent credible people are making statements. And it's coming more mainstream than from the ufo community. Absolutely you know. The ufo community was attack by people like philip class and edward condom not the science mainstream scientific community or military community. And so. I think that that difference is probably the reason that it is being taken more seriously and i think that they know now that this is not a threat. But i'm afraid they're going to play it as a threat so two different things If i can go back in history again in july of nineteen fifty two major general. John a samford Called the largest press conference since the end of world war two and this was after so many people saw folks over washington. Dc they were on radar Airforce planes were scrambled to chase them and john. Sanford began the press conference by saying these things have been seen in the sky dating back to biblical times. They generally come back about once every hundred years and then they leave again but in the twentieth century they came back and they haven't left and he said that the air force was looking at that very closely. They were not going to be frantic about it but they were going to do a scientific investigation and this has been going on a long time. The public has known about this but.
"sixty years" Discussed on Make Sierra Leone Famous
"Spread. The bad stuff you almost need to bother about spreading them because there are so many people who would spread that anyway joking dot if that's what you wanna do but wasn't diversity on this much of it. Also spread around the world that shed those elliptical roles. So that's really so i am optimistic. Yes now i like you said he's not going to happen by itself. You know my mother used to say it doesn't make itself. Somebody has to put the ingredients together to the whole thing now. You're absolutely right. I have had to for my own mental wellbeing and also firm need to be able to continue to engage with home. I'm had to be very about amplifying positive Houses people who as. I don't think i don't need to know them. I don't need to like them. Even the just have to be something that said a positive lights on scurvy on or that impacts community positively or. that's creating something that makes people think of sierra leone in a different way and that gives them. I'm just like yeah. Let's amplify this. And i also optimistic optimistic about sierra. Leone's future an exactly for the same reasons that i feel like. There is a resurgence. Among sierra leoneans millennials like myself who are leaning in for sierra leone and not necessarily looking for government jobs the government position Be but are just really engaging with sierra leone your culture and each other in a really dynamic way that i feel like if we keep pouring fuel on that and continue to if we point fuel on ease puzzle engagements these what all this activity. That's happening and connecting the odds that people start feeling because if you don't feel positive of you're not going to engage if you don't hear stories about how sierra leaving have gone home and such at businesses and those businesses are successful. You're not going to start a business there. It doesn't matter what i keep talking but doesn't matter how many world bank reports are reports. This will these. It doesn't matter for what matters are success stories of other sierra leoneans in sierra leone and that's why amplified because i'm like people need those people in this alone way. Deep on politics ninety governments have business than get projects and get ideas way that not only make money but the positively impacting community and there is a lot of that. I see every single day. And it's what gives me brings me joy and i amplify it and i encourage everybody else to do. The same to to lean in for positivity and to lean back all the way battle negative bawku so we have to be intentional about like leaning back from negative as relates to sierra leone leaning in for the positive stuff because of as we all go depressed non-nego end for a good number. One do not see neighbors. I don't know. I am for the same reasons very optimistic about sierra leone So happy sixtieth independence anniversary I don't know how you're going to spend it wait. Are you going to go to sierra leone for the sixty s sunday is are you. You're planning on doing like a. i remember. You had said you were planning on doing like a book. Sierra leone in sixty bulk like you did for sierra leone at fifty. Is that still happening. People be able to get the book. What's going on with eight for sixty in the sixty s.

Sunday only kanzi went down goo goo goes that fighters komo then takes on it's man Who can then make you wouldn't ask for you now. You must be the pagliuca. i digress. Which every time. I talk to you talking to but i guess at sixty i guess the only next thing for me to ask you is where do you. Are you up to missing about certain things and then what are those things you feel like until we address these issues. We're probably going to be stagnant one thing. A friend said to me recently. Which i really really related to a lot of us. Think you cannot stay on that develops forever like some people. Have this idea that like one day. One the beat and he was just like no as continents. Actually we could forever be broken and destroyed right. Don't think it's not going to get better. That's just like you can really coast as we sell mark. I don't if it's a celebration but as we mark sixty sixty th independence anniversary for sierra leone And we're looking for the next ten years until the next the seventieth whatever the future are you optimistic for what where we're headed. And what are the things. I hope you're optimistic mystique. So if you're not missing please be optimistic about it. I know you're optimistic. If i still optimism what are the things that you see here that makes you feel like you know. I spent my entire life dedicated to building community for sierra leone and working for sierra leone and building uk sierra leone relations. But here are the things that i'm seeing right now. That makes me hopeful for you. Know sierra leone in the next ten years. I mean to me there's also little things and one of these drove friend just the other day that unless somebody brings all these little things together to tell people about what they are there. Were not aware you know this friend of mine. Who's she's a writer. she's a blocked. Since this book published until unions of busy embracing say my quote a you might know about you. Know art in all seriousness. We sent a bus when we saw that people start sharing details outage online telling deep. Will you know if you have children book. It's a positive or console. And then you had things like slap fest certain contra festival which takes place in an annual. You and i and really give me a buzz about that. Is that not only were these young men and some of who what started in quotes because actually born in the uk parents were severed and they were going back to sheridan some of them who do not speak creole unlearn grill. Because they know that that's the lingua franca insurer leona. They wanted to be able to fit in. Some of them are actually going back to go and try and live there and they're trying to stop businesses on when you look at the talent that we within the group of those people for example organized that then there are positives. Look at free. John itself the male yvonne. Aki soya everytime she gets an accolade or a people. Embrace it in celebrates use it here in the gambia to shame them to say you know some of the things you should be doing seriously You know so. The thing is because all these things. This is not a kind of umbrella where all of these things celebrated and people are not aware of h. And so i would say to the people who do slack fist. I said that should be part of your job. I can help in whatever. Where can i can help with both historical and and you know in person. It's not like i'm kind of gathering dust somewhere. I always have an interest about things that are happening. That's good and positive. Because i think those are things that inspire people to actually say. Yes we can achieve. There's a lot that you and i know if you allow it the kind of depressing stuff. The data being beaten down by it but we can't allow what we should do is not ignore apps but at the same time when their stuff to celebrate. Like your book slack. Fist like yvonne getting nominations instead of those things and we should let people know that you know ceremonies in just in here in the gambia of people. Have this notion. That ceremony was once this great country. Education system should use things that are happening now to inspire those in the presidential future.

"Syria one of the ones that i wanted to use. We tell that story because otherwise people just get the short version of africa an it. What struck lucky when in my career was. When i was looking at the i two jobs i also worked at the company s office and i joined the cabinet office a month after tony blair became prime minister and of course he was very much a somewhat supportive of syria. So the great things that has to happen in the general sierra leone in general is like what you were doing these about what you were doing was kind of like destroying the myth of british exceptionalism right to totally at You know oftentimes on lots of times. Believe in their exceptionalism. It is america's agnes socialism. Where he thinks that like oh. We're just great at everything. And you know the whitewash their own history and their own stories in their narratives and they're always the good guys right. they're always on the side of and i think in turn when we're talking about Independence and sierra leone independence. A key part of that is that as individuals country you. I have to destroy the notion ideas or any preconceived about the exceptionalism of the british empire about k. of british people in general. Just definitely down conversation from a place. Acknowledge that we are first of all equals. That's the one thing and there's nothing the powers that be neocolonial powers of this world doer. there's no they don't engage with us because the like they want to help us develop. There's no such thing that concept does every time you see people like that's in your area it is because they have vested interests and those vested interests are oftentimes to preserve certain powers and certain powers over us. So i just wanted to say that because this is about independence week on sierra leone at sixty that we have to keep having the conversation not just about That's not just about celebrating independence also about being anti neocolonial so that those people who come on the promises of helping us developed with their development agenda. Don't take us back without us being aware that really Neocolonial forces trying to still have control over us Control of our resources or influence on the political dynamics in our country neocolonial modern forces and rejecting them that pretend to be aligned with us for our own good but in actuality are there because they have vested interests in light of the fact that is this is the independence edition of our show. And you being a you're british civil servant for jersey. Tell people work experts. How the anti helping help you really does to continue the agenda of the next story about two hundred percent true. And they're right. I spoke to him before this call. And he's like my godfather he actually called to say he loves to drop off his new book on protocols. I online where you can ask him about. What about to tell you next. I was at the cabinet office at tj novalis from by joining four and the british establishment. Away works was that as a deposed prime minister he couldn't be received officially support to on so on a particular day. Soulet court me Hughes previously high commission. Here the bill. You probably know he called me Exactly yeah. He called me and said john was in london. She was aware of the protocol regarding the fight that he was decrease on that he couldn't fight. It was there a way that he could be invited to number ten and believe it or not the last phone call. I had had before the one from suruga was with the diary secretary at number ten sixteen. An appointment for johnny and so i said look i said all i have to do is press. Dial i can speak to them and see what they can do. And so said yeah. Please do so. I've called them straightaway and invited gaba because they had like fifteen minutes slaughter coming tuesday and he posed for some pictures which he always used right to the end of these days but the weird thing was there was a reception for him. organized by ten downing. Street's shouldn't be the and so on. And so also richie civil servants who worked in sierra leone up to the one thousand nine hundred five up to independence with these people who in sarajevo people held in very high regard ought about it was they were will bragging about how because of their white skin when they were in sarajevo. Walk out of the country with pockets stuffed with diamonds. Nobody because they were white. Nobody who desktop monday. Tony was running. Actually they didn't know. I will surrogate the just you that i worked at the office and so they're attended these jokes and when he got too much from the indian had to say to look at the sierra leone. I don't find this funny at all because you know nowadays. Yeah i said you know. Nowadays we talk about corrupt leaders and corrupt people in authority. And you now bragging. What they said was that they used to do was that they will give the travelling. They're quite happily give the damage to their wives. And that's one of them said to laughter. He said to nobody would stop a white woman in us to search her back when she was leaving the country. There's only larry's and of course these men or grew wealthy. And so you know these people who offensively still had this really good reputation good civil servants but corrupt.

"Societas from those memories. Like i had brothers who and they probably wouldn't say it's the it's the them but i have brothers who yes for many years when we were the. Us did not want to ski crew. They did not want to identify as against. They did not want identify as anything. But african americans and i never thought that maybe part of that is just like trying to mentally cope with you know coming from a place having seen so much destruction your life. Yeah seen those a bizarre case of this with my own on my cousins a us constant jubilee watches any one time for this. She got around to that. She was born in ireland and then she was dating a nigerian and they were planning to get married and they came to visit and so of course. I started speaking creole to and she called me into the kitchen. And said i don't tell me talk crew on expansive talking about of course. I refused to a nigerian -able if you sort of trying to impress over from russia that understand but a nigerian could probably on the stance creo anyway That you don't understand will speak tonight when you were born you grew up in did leave the country fifty five everything goes. I play the game seriously but that was the kind of thing that people did they because everything that people heard about. Sierra leone depressed was Was bad and i remember. I became some sort of in a way. It kind of go-to guy. Whenever the times the daily mail say to them for this guy sure he can tell you what i told them was in constant telephone. Contact with my family members insured this of course before mobile phones and but they kept me updated So even when the date amid around his story that loss of certain a young bedroom coming to london claiming there was a war in syria. I had to get in touch with. They don't play there is one. But didn't bush will by the argument started a kind of open. What always news he in the reports. And i think that's why we don't like it when they tell. The truth of the negative side is because in the reporting it's never knew scraping never provided the context. Here is just like oh this is just an because they wanna do like african news feed the speed bumps croak down in its own the council one of the things i did in this sort of talk about the resorts in london particularly their lot of people from countries communities from africa from all sorts of things from somalia from saturday on us and so the impact refugee week and so a lot of the schools will commemorate that week and so what i ended up being. I built up a sort of the resource where i go and talks in this about what these countries beyond the kind of shorter narrative of these savages. And i always started by saying that. If you live in england and you watch tv at all it is an impossibility for you to go more than seven or ten days without seeing a film that sets in the first second world war awesome war. They're obsessed with it. And so i would start by if it was a school. Saturday journal. june from somalia to them that just imagine this for the last hundred twenty years. That's probably not been a single year with britain has not been involved in a war somewhere in the world. It's impossible at this. Now you can talk about a guy aniston or somewhere where they have an interest or a presence and so when they tell you that your warlike savage and so on you can always throw that statistic active list of go back from the crimea. Walk through to a second. What will was independence against the indians. And so on all of those. The maui in kenya with a british suppressed seven killed him and dimmer concentration camps. So i'd always give them that say we're not savages. Though let anybody tell you that you are then sort of tell them about the arts culture architecture of of that country these are things that define you not just the fact that you're a refugee and so i did that every year for several years. June international view of course.

"The eastern sierra leone to the united kingdom because there were people there we decided was not speak he was no longer going to speak on behalf of the country of sierra leone. That's you who is not in government who got You mistakes on Thinner and you know the funny thing was the reason he did. It was because he feels safe he could succeed. They will keep our on us high commissioner. So do on any team. Bad against johnny boorda seriously. Yeah so i ended up on record. I ended up hosting the press conference taking all the questions. It was embarrassing because the gun. High commission os their. The nigerian high commission was to lend support. They spoke a and yet to on high commissioner. Who's high commissioner. Prenton insists premesis famous. Taking base did not speak on that. Stand that so eh. Jerry add by commissioners when spoke at our embassy to talk to the solidirity in sierra leone but the sierra leone high commission now is he dead by the way he's also yes but i can name. Anybody wants to this three rights. I do think it's important in name as it is history of facts right so it's not about like not it's the truth. I the thing is like lack of each trio schism rights. Like how how. It's accents pictures. Richardson did not exist in the hall for listening to you did an individual survivor. Like you know. Let me play my cards right. So that like by not speaking by not doing my job. I wanna make sure that you know. I'm i can keep my job likes seriously. Oh the press. The british press who were there. They were completely perplexed. Because you know the nigerians came out and said we ought to be condemned. The finance came out and said we utterly condemn this data. And i can tell you die commission. He didn't even so much as welcome to the high commission. Said a word the facts. I'm not date of says without leave. Yeah i mean in bizarre out. So it's like a one hour. Press conference updated bieber on based on what i knew to questions based on ended up thanking everybody for company whose it so but what the thing also did for me was that when people were coming over to london a ticket to london from sheridan because of the turmoil in sarajevo. I became aware of the fact that a lot of them in terms of schooling. It will miles behind british children of the same age and so i started hosting three lessons in my house of children are. We've been feeding at no at my own expense. And i could tell you this a six years ago. When i was one of those young children ran up to me in brixton market. And hug me and said she's now a doctor and i couldn't believe it chew stacking for the lessons. That honestly made my day just to see that she sort of grown to those stat tra- under many that sort of through might also be able to keep in touch with the country through their parents. Enter them just. I've always wanted to be historian. Who because people's experiences saw them about what they remember growing up concern. Certain always tried to tell them to forget because a lot of them once they got into england they sort of started pretending they were british and because of the experiences they won't take nothing was time when i was in sierra leone on may twenty seven hundred ninety seven i have just moved back bless than opium because i was really homesick there and my mom was just like fine go back and i had enrolled in school and i was right and then the coup happened and it wasn't unsold realized that i had actually long outs that i don't remember in china too. I think as a twelve year old. Charles use my brain has like erased so much of that particular year in sierra leone. That's what she needs. That's that's what human beings and for many years. I was always. I wasn't empathetic to people's trauma and they didn't realize how being traumatized as a child. Yes that one of the coping mechanism is you want to leave all of its great so there is general who are who left during the war and completely said like blocked out sierra leone completely assimilated really really well as a coping mechanism but on the outside when you look at them and like the accent affectation really trying. Can you carry you as you think that they just are not proud. And that's all you see but you never about these. People are responding trauma and.

Anniversaries like the founding of free child or independence day. Something we would organize it. Locking always seemed to how interesting high commissioners who would invite to allow us to use the high commission as a venue for these events because it saves them having to planet themselves.

I got his house that yes he's dead now on needs them people in a quite blatant i. Yeah i think one of the things that it you know. I was born in eighty four. So we are the millennials and And this is exactly why he our generation always have such We have such disconnect to the kind of sierra leone. Remember from your own childhood ray because when people talk about sierra leone good for our entire lifetime if you're if you're a millennial meaning you're you're turning forty this year. Meaning you're born. It's basically everybody nineteen eighty-one right. If you were born in nineteen eighty one to like the and like early nineties you're considered a millennial and the thing is it's like if we don't have a point of reference of when corruption wasn't normal and it wasn't the culture We don't have a difference in our lives of like anything other than what you just described where people do shameless heinous things. They're not afraid or ashamed to speak of in public. So like what's what has been normalized as you know. Not decent ninety values of ceylon felina. Would you talk to yes.

So we company has certainly made changes, and it's not over the years, but that's part of being around for for now approaching sixty years. Yeah. Keep her with us here. Other son at Texas wanna ask you Rick about the world famous burritos and the origin of the world spray. Does this is made pet? Green songs. It's made all the west Texas consciousness knows thing or two about the also spree. Oh, hardly. Would you meet a what? West Texan that has not eaten all spree to- talk to us about the origins, and how it might have been a little more surprising. How this came about than people might expect. I got the story directly for Mr. all that number of years ago. And he had a smile when he was telling me the story. He said we play start order as always. And we got regular supplies for the stores at that time. But there was this huge mistake and delivery. I don't know the number if there was a truck load or semi load. I don't know how big that load was but we received a huge amount of these re does that we had ordered. And Mr. also tried one and loved them and had made the decision that we'll keep these. And we're going to sell them and see folks. And that was forty plus years ago, and it has trying to become a it's funny. I talked to folks all over the country and my regular daily job, and they'll say you still have the world famous beef and being burrito. And I'm sure we do the first question is always this. Can you send me a box? Because that's such. It's one of those things you find here, and you may not find him anywhere else. Now today, I believe we have seven burritos. That's how much it has grown. Do. We still have the forty year favorite, of course. But we also have all the different burritos different types of if types I pay and hatch green, chili is in some these types of things. So that it's it's gone from one unique item to now out to seven items that support that whole retail chain if he was so in all started as a mistake. Started as a mistake. And as I think my boss at the time said, he's one where you know, once in a while things worked your way. I mean, I can't imagine a youth without ah Tolson diet coke and to also spray tos. Well, you know, once you you get into the howlers become my favorite through the years, and we used to do radio remotes for the also stores here in Blois and towelettes and around the surrounding area as well. As our stations up in borger did for ten stores there are stationed in Andrews for all sips down in that area. And the case was one thing we always did is to give away free samples when we were doing our live broadcasts. And there were folks that would look where you were at to make sure at lunchtime. 'cause we did this between eleven and noon. They would literally find which one of the stores you were at if he didn't say because they were gonna stop in and had some free food them Chuck bragging. So, you know, and I mean that the good way regular listeners than that were literally they forward to trying to find you until you sit on here in the first break, we're here at you know, whatever location because then a lot of folks would show up and off and people would come in. They try the free samples and end up going gosh, those are really good, and the hell opinion poppers, I think one of the best things that we carry those. That's just personal favorite though. Yeah. Rick Kiefer with us here on the other side of Texas three hundred fifteen stores. How many of them are east of thirty five? Do you know? You know, the largest. Not sure I couldn't even give you a good number. I would say that the farthest reach of our company in this is kind of a broad stroke explanation from Stephenville, Texas, the Gallup, New Mexico..
