Illegal Immigrants and Drugs Have Skyrocketed Under Biden

"The number of illegal immigrants who are crossing the border every day is higher than it has ever been. And that has a fact not only in terms of illegal immigration and illegal immigrants being shipped to the center of the country and hundreds of thousands of so called gotta ways, people who are brought into the country and then just left, right? Just absconded from custody or were handed a paper that says come back for your core team just never came back. There are also some 500,000 people who actually just got through the border that they estimate, we don't even know about. We've never even had any interface with the border patrol. Put all those people as I put all the costs of that, put all of the associated welfare costs and medical costs, many of which do exist on the state level if not on the federal level. But that aside, the drug crisis that has existed in the United States via the shipping of fentanyl over the border is extraordinary. So for example, when you look at the statistics on fentanyl seizures at the southwest U.S. border, you can see that they absolutely start to just skyrocket at the very end of 2020 and then they just continue all the way till now. It is a massive, massive differentiator between most of the Trump administration and the very tail end of the Trump administration and the entirety of the Biden administration. In April of 2022, for example, over 1200 pounds of fentanyl were seized at the Southwest United States border. These are huge, huge numbers.

Author Steven Mosher Explains How China Breeds Pandemics

"A major work is out now. I love these politically incorrect guides. I have learned an immense amount from them. And you have now a written when was it published just this week last week last month, the on off the presses, the publication date was this week, and so the politically incorrect guy to pandemics. I love it. There's no doubt it is now on my list to read because it's you and because it's the subject. So give me, give me some examples of a politically incorrect take on pandemics. Well, first of all, people need to know that China is the great breeding ground of pandemics, especially under the Chinese Communist Party. That back in 1958, there was something called the Asian fluid killed a million people around the world. Why? Because when it originated in South China in the province of guizhou in the southwest of China, the Chinese Communist Party covered it up. It did not see fit to notify the World Health Organization that there was a dangerous new virus on the loose, the tens of thousands of Chinese were dying. And it became a pandemic and spread around the world. Only later did genetic evidence trace it back to China. A far too late to do any good in terms of curbing the pandemic. Same thing happened again. Same playbook, 1967, 68, with what was called the Hong Kong flu. Now, Dennis, it wasn't the Hong Kong flu. It was the Mainland China flu, the people of Hong Kong were furious at being having it mislabeled. But China did the same thing. The Chinese Communist Party did not notify the World Health Organization, covered up the epidemic, let it spread around the world until over a million people died. But the real, the real troubling episode and the one that should have clued us into the danger from China as the great breeding ground of pandemics happened in 2002, 2003. This was the SARS one coronavirus epidemic. We're living through the SARS two. SARS one happened. I began in November 16th of 2002, when a snake cellar in the southern Chinese province of Guangdong became ill with a coronavirus, a snake coronavirus, in that case, not a bad coronavirus. And he died fairly quickly after that. Thousands of people died in China in the months following. And what did China do? The Chinese Communist Party hid the breakout of this deadly coronavirus. It silenced whistleblowers. It did not notify the World Health Organization, and it was only when Canadian intelligence thank God, Canadian intelligence services picked up wire transmissions in China about the spread of a dangerous new virus that the world went to China and said, what's going on and China belatedly admitted that it had an epidemic on its hands

How a Band of Activists Helped Bring Down Sri Lanka's Government

"So here's an interesting question for you. Have you been following what's going on in Sri Lanka? Sri Lanka is an island country on the southeast off the southeast coast of India. I think it's the southeast coast. Maybe it's the southwest coast. It's funny, usually the thing you say first is right. You want to check that. I think it's southeast. Yeah. Southwest of the Maldives. Southeast is Sri Lanka. And I was there. It's a beautiful, it's known for being a beautiful island. It was called Ceylon, it's now called Sri Lanka. I've never understood these name changes. I'm sure that Sri or Sri Lanka is closer to the indigenous language of the country. But why does anybody care what foreigners call their country, must the bad name? I mean, to the Germans insist that the world called Germany deutschland, Germany has nothing to do with their family. They share virtually no letters. I haven't followed that. Why did Peking become Beijing? What was wrong with Peking? Anyway, Sri Lanka, or Sri Lanka, has just seen the government overthrown by massive protests.

Cattle Ranchers May Have Been Responsible for Cattle Deaths

"I was incorrect and did not have the full information about the cattle that had passed away in Kansas. The story has reported how the story is being reported that there was at least 10,000 cattle that had passed away due to a heat wave. Now, in my mind, because I have zero adequate knowledge around cattle ranching, and also I have skepticism that's a mile long when it comes to our government and I'm slightly a conspiracy theorist. I believe that there could have been a nefarious cause to the cattle losing their lives. However, because of great people like you guys that listen to the show, there were two people that called me that there are a couple. They called me, they listened to my show on YouTube, and they said, hey, Brandon, can we talk to you? We want to give you some better information about the cattle out there in southwest Kansas. And I said, let's do it. They called me on the phone, and this is what they told me. That the death of the 10,000 cattle is not abnormal. If you a cattle rancher, it's not abnormal for a heat wave to cause this level of death. And the significant points that I took from the conversation that I had with them is that little do you know many of us, how many cattle are actually out there? From the information that they told me that there was, there could be anywhere from a half a million cattle and what they call feet lots.

"From wondery, I'm David Brown and this is business wars daily on this Tuesday, march 29th. After COVID-19 vaccines came on the scene last year, you may recall more people started flying again. Unfortunately, there was also an increase in unruly passengers. Last year, the federal aviation administration said it had received more than 6000 complaints about passengers bad behavior. Airline crews were verbally abused, shoved, and had trash thrown at them, in the worst cases, flight attendants and other customers were assaulted in one case an alleged assailant was even duct taped to his seat to subdue him. The behavior got so bad that the FAA announced a zero tolerance policy, act up on an airplane and there would be no warnings or counseling. The penalties would be stiff fines and possible jail time reports CNN. The incidents had a couple of things in common. Many started because some passengers didn't want to comply with mask mandates. And ABC News reports, a fair number had been fueled by alcohol. In an effort to make the skies a bit friendlier, some airlines made a sober decision. They cut back on food and drink service to limit the time customers were unmasked as well as the interaction with flight crews. No more booze was also meant to decrease the number of AR eyes or alcohol related incidents, with passengers who had imbibed a bit too much. Now this new era of prohibition is coming to an end of the four major carriers two have been reluctant to open the bar again, but last month, Southwest Airlines started serving alcohol on flights more than 175 miles. And now the last holdout, American Airlines has announced that alcohol will be available on longer flights starting on April 18th when the federal mask mandate expires. The airline is already serving alcohol in first class and on international flights. Food service is also returning. American was the last holdout here, too, while other carriers have resumed snack service, American will start offering food options on flights longer than about three and a half hours, though just chips and almonds at first, NBC reports. The airline has announced that it will offer contact free ordering later this year. Over at Southwest, most flights only have pretzels, but some additional snack options are available on longer flights. Food and beverage policies on various carriers have been anything but uniform, and some have been more conservative with their decisions than others, and while customers may be happy about the return of in flight drink service, there is one group that isn't as pleased. The flight attendants union. After Southwest announced its plans to resume alcohol service last month, the union said it was outraged at southwest's irresponsible resumption of alcohol sales, axios reports. The union said in a Facebook post that the move would put members safety and security at risk. The airlines have assured flight attendants and passengers that they will monitor the situation. But for some customers, the return of the in flight beer, wine or cocktail is welcome news. That they're more than ready to drink up. From wondering, this is business awards daily. I'm your host David Brown, written by Gwen Moran and produced by Jessica yarmosky. Our executive producers are Tina Rubio and Marshall.

Proceeds supposed to a wild and dramatic TikTok that involves the term womb lands and also the phrase you're fucking new. Allegations of being a sexual predator and quote unquote assault start flying around videos are posted and deleted another indigenous creator is a wrongly accused of having dated Lance and is brigaded by Chelsea Hart's followers, such that this indigenous creator is now banned from TikTok has since been unbanned. A woman comes forward and says Lance cheated on her and that the same thing happened, but then as you actually Chelsea a whole lot of other stuff happens, the womb lands become a meme and drum roll.

"No airline employee is basically saying that publicly, especially the unions who are would be the ones to authorize a strike, they're not saying anything about this vaccine mandate or any issues. They're the ones also confirming, yeah, we have no problems. Got it. All right. I guess what it's confusing to me is this happened with Southwest. You mentioned shortage issues. You mentioned weather. I mean, how is it that these other airlines were able to keep their fights going in southwest just seemed to have this catastrophic failure this weekend? Sure. I mentioned the union. So the pilot union for Southwest. They definitely drag southwest the company, saying that this is a sign of how the company is not working properly. You know, when it comes down to it, when these delays happen, there's obviously a lot of contingency plans that go into effect with the different airlines. But if there is a screw up, it can keep producing this big domino effect because in the case of Southwest, they don't have a hub like other big airlines like Delta and American Indian. So because they don't have a hub, they have to make sure their operation is very tightly run. They have to the crews. They can't just automatically send a plane from another location to where the trouble is happening. They can't send their crew back to the hub. So and then there's all these other regulations that come into play when with the EFA, you know, if a flight is delayed by several hours, that crew has to take a require I believe 6 to 6 or 8 hours a rest time. And then there's some crews that words that were in the right city. Because that they weren't able to get hotels because of that, they weren't able to get the flights next day to crew. And so forth to it. So it was just a clear side in southwest. Southwest was, you know, tip tone the line of efficiency and a when that wouldn't initially become so profound enough, then it just, they just went over the line and we saw what happened. Right. And is this a problem that's still going on? Have a gun handle on this issue? Or are we still seeing a lot of cancellations going into today? Well, right now, according to flight aware, which keeps track of how many delays and so forth. So so far it's looking like regular like regular business for Southwest. It's in the single percentage of cancellations right now. Still less than a hundred, which is still kind of high. And there's still a lot of delays at comparison to like American and Delta, but yeah, it's definitely not as bad as was over the weekend and even on Monday where it got also pretty bad. Gotcha. And so do you think this is just a blip or a sign of things to come, especially during this holiday season when people are more prone to travel, and.

Flights were cancelled. And what's going on here. Is that regular normal. Workers for southwest airlines are saying to the vaccine mandated mandating corporate oligarchs. You are not going to be able to do this to us and ruined our careers without fighting back and the media blackout component of this has been very instructive as to place. Our country is in. We're going to go through that because the media's just co colluding with the pharmaceutical companies trying to cover up this sickout grinding planes to a halt has been. I think one of the most interesting and important takeaways from this entire couple days saga most people that are looking at the story saying. Oh yeah. it's air traffic control. It's weather where would we be without social media. Social media actually shows that the southwest airline pilots and they are lacking for labor southwest airlines unnecessarily created an ultimatum. They created a hostage situation with their workers. They said if you do not get the vaccine we will ruin your career. We will terminate you. And i said okay if that's the case we're gonna use whatever power we have left to make sure that we send a message to you that if you think you can bully us after the sacrifice the early mornings the late nights that we've put in for this airline for this enterprise for this company. Good luck running an airline and the result. Twenty eight percent of all flights yesterday were canceled.

"More and more comfortable getting out there and feeling like the the quote unquote risk is is not not not as great because we have all of these tools in. So you're going to see. I think traffic. Continue to pick up. So i mean south west. That's a nice. That's a nice thing right airline you want the demand but you have to be able to satisfy that demand and there are a lot of airlines out there and a lot of bigger airlines that seemingly didn't have to deal with the same problem that southwest had to deal with and so so yeah they will. They will want to make sure they don't let this persist right. I mean this is something. Where if you continue to see well. They had to cancel more flights. And they're not like you said a little bit ahead of their skis. I mean that that can have some longer lasting implications on on the stock price is is perhaps the grows broke. Prospects don't seem as attractive as they won't wore the twenty fifth film. In the james bond franchise opened in the us and canada over the weekend. No time today took in fifty six million dollars at the box office putting it just over three hundred million dollars worldwide. This isn't mgm film. But you read the coverage of this and it's clear it wasn't just mgm. That was rooting for the success. I mean this really was. This is one of those tentpole movies in the same way. That the top gun sequel. The next marvel movie these are. These are films that are designed to get people in the theater and it's hard to look at this as anything other than at least a little bit disappointing. They were really hoping for more. And when i say they. I mean literally everyone in hollywood. Yeah i guess. I feel like apparently n gm's expectations. This landed squarely within their expectations. Now hopefully they were going in there with more of a conservative tape because it does it does feel it does feel like that's still a pretty light number and that's probably for a few reasons. I mean i. I kind of wonder i. We were talking about this earlier in for me. At least it feels. Like maybe the james bond franchise. I don't i don't know if it's gotten stale or maybe not resonating with as many folks may maybe that's just not it at all..

"I think that's the right thing to do. Honestly i mean with with airlines really if you wanna grow you have to you have to offer more routes and more flights but what they did in the process of this is they started spreading themselves very thin and i think what this really does is. It shines a light on on air travel and shows how really difficult running an airline could be. I mean it is. It is one of the more complex logistical equations. That you constantly have to try to figure out. And i mean just go to the airport. And you see the arrivals and departures in. It's just an amalgam of like how in the world did they make all of this stuff work. I mean i. It is not just on the airlines themselves right. I mean you've got air traffic control to deal with and whatnot. So i think i mean there are clearly some air traffic control issues in florida and there was some weather issues that that's not that's not a made up. Excuse that is real. I think part of the staffing issue really more relates to southwest's efforts to grow its it's adding of routes and services. They just kind of spread themselves a little bit too thin and then they got hit by a few sort of external factors there. That really made it a very very difficult. Logistics problem probably one that they really couldn't couldn't fully solve and that's what resulted in having to cancel all of these flights. The good news. I think is something that will pass but they absolutely need to make sure that they are staffed up appropriately for this for this growing business if they want to if they wanna maintain that that customer service reputation that they've been able to foster up at this point. I'm glad you mentioned the darden example. Because i think this is something that we see a lot more often in restaurants and in retail where typically at the end of fiscal year restaurant chains major retailers. We'll talk about their footprint. And how many new locations are going to be opening and closing ones and all that sort of thing and some. I know that. I have made the comment over the past decade at various points in time about a given retailer or given restaurant chain when they come out and say this is how many locations planning to open in the next year and my comment at different points in time has been. That doesn't seem like a lot. You know why. Why aren't they aiming higher. And to your point it's like you want to grow smartly. You wanna make sure you're not overextending yourself and you know it's not the sort of thing where you can just snap your fingers and you know throw up a new restaurant and hire a bunch of people to staff it. Accordingly and as you said it might have been the southwest. Got a little bit over their skis. But this is this is definitely something that bears watching and as we head into earning season. It'll be interesting to to see if other airlines get questions about what's happening at west and any comments they make. Yeah yeah. I mean it's absolutely particularly as as you watched the rest of this year. Play out. I mean seeing all sorts of signs i mean i think we're just going to see more and more people traveling right mean. We already point now. Where i think just you know we were talking about this delta.

And how james bond did over the weekend and we're also going to get to the big banks that are kicking off earning season later in the week. But i we gotta talk about southwest airlines because shares are down a bit today after. They cancelled nearly two thousand flights over the weekend. Southwest blamed it on a combination of bad weather. Air traffic control issues and staffing problems. Although i will point out other airlines have to deal with bad weather and air traffic control and other airlines weren't canceling nearly two thousand flights. This weekend we talked the other day on motley. Fool money about hiring being an issue..

"Nfl scores while there was one as a season opened up with a thirty one. Twenty nine tampa bay went over dallas. The bengals start this sunday against me to sold out and we'll talk a little bit more about that later on but first let's head to high school football scores for week three but first a little tidbit of news. The eastern cincinnati conference recently decided to go to a one non conference schedule meaning. They'll be nine conference games and there's ten schools so everyone's gotta play each other which you know if you think about it you look at the negatives and you know maybe you wanted to schedule a tougher. Non conference slate to get some points and maintain a playoff spot. Which i get that but then again the. Sec is pretty jam-packed whitten woods turpin kings. And there. I think you know nine conference games. That's a great idea that for everyone has to play each other at least once so you can expect that next year not this year. We haven't fully hit into conference slate but there are a few games. Volleying some leagues. But we're going to start with the non-conference tilts. I followed up with a thursday night affair metal. Dale had a forty to nothing lead against hillcrest at welcome stadium. And that's how the line one forty to nothing over hillcrest in a game that was supposed to be a gmc opener for princeton at home. Turn out to be in a way non-conference till that dublin coffman and dublin kaufman not allowing the visiting broadcasters. That would be me to make the trip. The vikings scored thirty four and answer points to close a half and take it from dublin. Coffman forty forty fourteen. The host shamrock scored the first and last touchdowns of the game but princeton route off. Forty four points in between to go to three. You know elsewhere. Ross defeated value coming from behind. Twenty one seventeen waynesville rolls over bland. Chester forty two thirteen monroe. Sixty six western brown fifty eight in the battle of the christian schools troy christian prevails over dayton christian forty-eight twenty-four. It's twenty eight to come to nine..

Leaving for the sec. In twenty twenty five and the four schools three coming from the american athletic conference no later than twenty twenty four. So what houston. Ucf and uc must do will involve a twenty seven month notice so About two years and three months and also paid a ten million dollar exit penalty so. Uc's going to be a power five school. how about that. And current big twelve members include baylor iowa state kansas kansas state oklahoma state texas christian texas tech and west virginia so yeah west virginian. Uc rivalry hates backup. I can't wait especially for men's basketball season. If bob huggins is still around with. The mountaineers still liked his time with you.

Nineteen jared goff and trevor peters publicists article bow fourteen minutes ago now and the bearcats are now in a power five football conference by right now. I mean not till twenty twenty four at the latest. But they're making the jump and that is so exciting to me again. Get to talk about power five school. It's a shame we don't have any others around here. But what can you do. So that's a nice way to start off the episode as we now jump into football scores. We'll stick with college. Actually since we're on the topic of uc and the number eight bearcats handed miami a loss forty nine to fourteen for the victory bell. Uc's had the victory bell at clifton since two thousand five and the bearcats just rolled on desmond. Ritter had himself a game at quarterback. And evan prater also had a couple of touchdowns lay had a flipping touchdown into the enzo and that was the last score. The game for you see the former wyoming cowboy and the bobcats rolled forty nine to fourteen something ever colleges playing football the only quakers. They fell in overtime to southern virginia. Forty one thirty. Four great battle by the quakers. Just not enough to take down several virginia at home and the wittenberg tigers they fall to suny portland thirty eight sixteen in cincinnati.

"Luca turned around. He saw that. It was kobe bryant so i think those are the little things that the life skills in the so many languages at kobe. Kobe spoke in his life was absolutely incredible so You know. Just wanted to touch on kobe a little bit grabbing his forty third birthday But you know we miss toby. Being brian mamba i mean did the legacy that he left on. His game has truly been incredible. Yep narrow much more than that. He's one of the most influential players that we've had and probably will be in arguably ever hundred percent so one more note i wanted to get to was. I think this came down. Last week was Lebron getting zero votes on being the best player in the nba scott. What are your thoughts on this. You'd think lebron is no longer the best player in the nba. And after that news kinda came out. I think you know. Typical lebron post stuff on social media. Hashtag washed up. Hashtag will see what happens next. What are your thoughts on. Lebron not getting any votes as the best player in nba today. So i'm a little bit confused. Because not because the actual voting and how broke down but will bronze claiming that he's allegedly washed because he doesn't get respect that as the best player in the world anymore. Didn't he just say about five six months ago that he's never going to be the same again because of an ankle injury. Can you make up your mind to missing something. Typical brown right. I feel a little bron which is kind of an issue that i have not even just about him. Comparison jordan or anything like that. But i don't think i've ever seen a player who's as talented at his respective sport that goes out of his way to make himself a peers. Underdog more than lebron. You get it. People think that durant yasser better than you. You have the second lowest odds twenty title like why it's fine. You don't have to be the underdog your favorite to come out of the western conference like there are more important things than the media picking other players to be the best player in the world but yet lebron might be looking for motivation and everything but the guy tries so hard to be an underdog in every single situation and it's really annoying because we've seen him do stuff over and over again than most other players if not any other players in the nba could do now. Can you just keep your opinions about being underdogs to yourself or maybe like a week before you open it back up being harsh. Would you agree with me. And i agree with you. One hundred percent. He's always trying to take on that victim role. I guess you could say. But i don't know man. I certainly top five in the league today for sure right and nobody said he wasn't exactly but i think that yeah. I think kevin durant today healthy. Kevin durant is better than lebron. It might too crazy to say something like that. I'm not sure about jaanus. But kevin durant for sure i think so durant i think is i think. If you're going for the overreaction from the rest of the media. I think people would vote. Yawn is over lebron. I don't know i would. But i do think that because of the title and everything like that people would pick yang us to be better than lebron. I grew durant. I think durant the best player in the world. Just one healthy. Just because the fact that. I know that's lost the series to milwaukee when you look once again at the supporting cast that he had or the lack thereof for the last couple of games and the fact that durant had two huge games where he put a basically fifty any at that crazy shot where if his toes behind the line. That's one of the best shots in the history of the nba. Yeah and unfortunately now..

"Is this what we're gonna see from other airlines over the next couple of weeks. Southwest issuing eight k. Early this morning and the language is very clear. They said that they saw a drop off in their expected. Revenue for the august september timeframe three to four percentage point. And that's because of an immediate near immediate drop off in the number of bookings as well as an acceleration in cancellations. Here's the language from their eight k. And this all has to do with kobe. Nineteen and the impact. It's having on the psychology of travelers right now. South west saying the company has recently experienced a deceleration in close in bookings and an increase in close in trip cancellations in august. Twenty twenty one. In layman's terms. People are reassessing whether or not they want to take some trips or outright. Canceling them the passenger traffic levels. They've been down anywhere between twenty and thirty percent compared to twenty one thousand nine. That's the comparison. You wanna make if you look. You're starting to see a little bit of a plateau. Maybe even a bit of a pullback there at the and over the last two or three weeks so as you take a look at the major airline stocks savvy. Sip over at raymond james. She issued a note today. Saying is it possible. We will hear a similar message over the next several weeks from other airlines as they reassess whether or not they will meet their internal guidance where at least the guidance they've given wall street for revenue projections for the third quarter. Also keep an eye on the players who really do focus on the leisure market much more so than the business market and by that we're talking about spirit were also talking about frontier Jet blue jet. Jetblue does have a sizable business contingent as well. Let's see what happens with them. Because that's where you're noticing the fall off melissa in bookings when it comes to cove in nineteen it's people who are reassessing. Do i want to take that trip with my family. Do i wanna go. Where i was supposed to go. Maybe not because delta nineteen has made the cova cases surge in particular parts of the country. So there's the outstanding question as to whether or not other other leisure travelers will cancel or postpone but then we're also hearing a lot about postponements of back to office plans and that doesn't bode well for the corporate side either. I mean if people aren't going to the office they're probably not going to go on a plane to go anywhere that's true. That's a great point. And i think we could probably see that to a certain extent but keep in mind business. Travel is so depressed relative to where it was in twenty one thousand nine hundred that even if there is a bit of a pullback it really hasn't rebounded the way that the leisure market has so we could see some impact there and then in that case. You're talking about the deltas. The americans the united's who have a lot more business exposure than say a spirit or a frontier. All right fail. Thanks to see you at headquarters philibeaux. Should we be worried. I mean we had sort of been seeing this coming. We've had a number of high profile events canceled going remote or virtual New york auto show new orleans jazz. Fest tim seymour. So it's not entirely a surprise that maybe people reconsidering their plans at this point. No but it look. How airlines traded. Today you almost get a sense that this was something that been. Well telegraphed community didn't believe what i think. Now look like we're overly optimistic. Third quarter outlooks by the airlines. And so you're going into reading a bunch of notes today a couple of folks that we follow including hunter kate. Wolf saying we're gonna need to see trabzon cuts and is total revenue per available seat miles and so again. The capacity is down but also the revenue that they're able to to get out of customers that the bigger issue for me is also where the cost base for some of these airlines is actually moving higher so they have increased cost in terms of getting back to it. In some of these peak airport dynamics they have higher fuel costs. And i think this is part of the story but again what the what. The stocks done let. The stocks have largely reflected some of this negativity over the last three weeks. The stocks followed the bond market. The stock market kind of told you where. I think there was some concern around. Delta vary i love. When tim uses those synonyms like the other one who uses the. Yeah what was that guy. Homonym joking but he does a good job with those and i will tell you. Should you be considered as human beings. I think we should be concerned. But it's trading of the airlines if you look at these stocks they all peaked in mid april or so delta southwest pretty much all of them have come off anywhere from eighteen to twenty five percent. Phil let office reports saying you wouldn't know it by the way the stocks traded today. That's exactly it in a nutshell. I think people understand it. They're looking past this. They realized that maybe in terms of the stock the worst is over and giving us off. We've seen i agree. You don't have to run out and buy of all. But i got to tell you something delta to me looks really interesting terms where trade it down to forty dollars. It's basically where we broke up from. If you go back to january. I think you could trade delta against forty all day long here it is amazing that we are at a point in the markets where we can look past a surge in kovic cases. I mean that really tells you a lot. Steve about market psychology at this point with the snp and then in the dow basically record highs yes and so so couple fix first of all l. uv delta are the two companies that going into the pandemic had investment balance sheets. So let's start with that so if you're going invest in airline through all the smoke in through all the fires that we're seeing figuratively. Those are the to invest them. Guy mentioned about the stock phil mentioned as well but when you look at delta the death cross right so i know the guys the death a desk love the death process so the death cross is when the fifty day moving average or shorter term moves below a longer delta. Actually hit a doubt death cross and usually. That's the pinnacle not the beginning of a sell off so delta hit which means that the stock is now bible l. uv hasn't hit it but it's approaching it..

Passengers are filling up the plane fast when he hears the flight attendants closed the doors. He turns around and starts knocking on them calling out. Hey kelleher here. The doors. don't open now.

Some passenger starstruck ladies and gentlemen. We have an intern on board today. Who is going to help us with the flight service. Just call them herb. Because he won't answer to anything else. Kelleher walks down the aisle stopping to chat with the lubbock businessman. Now sir would you care for peanuts herve. I'd love some peanuts. But i gotta tell you. You are the ugliest flight attendant. I ever laid my eyes on a few days later when he's backing. His dallas office kelleher recounts his in-flight fund. The company's corporate secretary colleen barrett she laughs and suddenly stopped short. You know her. I've been thinking we've got something really special here with his culture of ours. We have to protect it now. Neither of them realize it at the moment. But southwest is about to do more than protect. Its freewheeling culture it's about to weaponize all those comedic flight announcements and other uniquely southwest personality quirks in.
