And there's no scientific evidence that ivermectin works unfortunately today no clinical trials of show that works for It is a disease that by the way is used for parasitic infections in humans as well but it's nowhere near the amount of evidence that we can use it in practice.

"Aggressive will you be in your second term to root out those who don't believe the american people get to choose that president so we had some people in my first time. They've been there a long time but they are deep. Say there's no question about it. look. I had great people. I had a lot of great people. We rebuilt the military. we rebuilt. can you imagine a lot of the things that i bought for. Military have been handed over eighty. Three billion dollars have been handed over to the taliban. It's not even believable that this could happen by biden but we rebuilt the military. We did so many things we were so good on. Healthcare people don't realize it we were so good on every aspect including the fact that we cut taxes more than any other administration in history. We cut regulations. That's why our jobs were so good. We had more jobs than we are. The greatest economy in history probably the greatest economy and the history of the world. We had one hundred sixty million jobs. We've never even come close to that over the years and certainly not even now but i rebuilt the economy twice. I rebuilt it before covert. I built it before covet and then rebuilt it after covet but you see covets coming back now. If i were president and cova came back they'd be front page stories. They don't even mention it with by but cope. It's coming back. I mean you look at the numbers. The numbers are in some cases worse than they were before. And nobody blames biden. But if you look at afghanistan you look at cova coming back. You look at a many other things including high taxes high gasoline prices. The economy is going to be ruined. Because it's all phony. It's all fake. They're just pouring money into pouring money into the economy you look at what's going on We got we're going to have an interesting period of time for the next three or four years that i can tell you

How Chaos In Afghanistan Emboldened Terrorism - burst 1

"Chaos in afghanistan upton as president biden withdrew military forces leading to a forceful takeover by the taliban today august seventeenth. We will dive into one of the greatest foreign policy. The buckles in modern history. Good afternoon. i'm meeting. Kim and this is the outspoken oma quote. Joe biden has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy national security issue over the past four decades and quote. Who said that not trump not a partisan congressmen or republican operative. That was robert gates. The former secretary of defense under president obama for three years and today as we see significant foreign policy the buckle unfolds in afghanistan that quote is once again reaffirmed now quickly dive into some basic background information as to what is transpiring in afghanistan back in mid april president biden announced immediate withdrawal all american troops from afghanistan by september eleventh. Twenty twenty one. Obviously september eleven was chosen dates because that was to recognize the anniversary of the september eleventh terrorist attacks and which led to the immediate was occupation of afghanistan because at the time afghanistan was harboring osama bin laden on august fifteenth. The taliban took over the capital of kabul effectively toppling. Afghanistan's governments later afghan. President ghani fled the country right before taliban leadership storm the presidential palace and thousands of afghan citizens fled to kabul international airport to skip the taliban. Now while oldest was transpiring. President biden was in camp david and he was strong criticized because he didn't have a strong message or strong immediate message in response to all of this so he traveled back to washington. Dc to address the nation from the white house one of the biggest elements that he was criticized for in the speech was the blame game in which he played and one of the obviously notable people in which she blames forwarded the buckle in afghanistan was trump and sort of implied some blame to bush and obama. He said quote when i came into office. I inherited deal that president trump negotiated with taliban on the his agreement. Us forces would be out of afghanistan. May i twenty twenty one. Just a little over three months after i took office. Us forces had already drawn down during trump administration from roughly fifteen thousand five hundred american force to two thousand five hundred troops in country. The taliban was strongest militarily. Since two dozen one the choice i had to make as your president was added to follow through on that agreement or be prepared to go back to fighting the taliban in the middle of the spring fighting season and quote. And but if you actually look at the deal that trump's state department may with taliban it's not what biden actually described in his address at a nation. Mike pompeo who was secretary of state under president trump said in a recent interview that the deal of the taliban was strictly conditional which meant that deal was was strictly predicated on the taliban committing to a peaceful transfer of power in order for america to withdraw after that commitment to a peaceful transfer of power appel said in a recent interview quote we would have demanded the taliban actually deliver on the conditions that we let out in the agreement including the agreement to engage in meaningful power sharing agreement some that which we struggled to get them to do but made it clear it was going to be required before we completed requirements to fulfil foley withdrawal and unquote. And you know there are some criticisms of the deal. Mike pompeo made with the taliban. Obviously the taliban actually pursuing a peaceful transfer of power from the afghan government was not going to happen. I mean we actually thought. That was being overly idealistic. So people had that criticism upon pales deal but even if biden did not agree with the policy that trump's state departments made in efforts to come to some sort of consensus with the taliban he kind of reversed it. I mean he was president for seven months. Which meant that. He'd independence day department and independence defense department and he could have used his powers as the chief executive to to reverse a deal that the previous administration made i mean for his entire time as president of the united states reversed nearly every single policy. That trump did while he was president. So this is no exception. I mean he should own up to the flaws of the policies in which he tried to pursue in addition to to trump he also blamed the afghan military. He said quote. The truth is but this did on for the more quickly than we had anticipated. So what happened. Afghanistan political leader escape up and fled the country the afghan military collapse. Sometimes we're not trying to fight if anything developments at the past week reinforced the ending. Us military involvement in afghanistan. No was the right decision. American troops cannot ensure not be fighting a war and dying in award. Afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves and quotes. This is honestly one of the most politically cynical things that i've ever heard biden say the afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves. Fifty thousand afghan military soldiers died in darndest entire two decades of us occupation of afghanistan. And the reason why they cannot successively defend themselves against the taliban was because biden himself pulled out a contractors and basically destroyed the afghans dependency on us military which are obviously undermined the ability of afghan military to counter act opposing taliban forces. According to the wall street journal quote in the wake of president biden's withdrawal decision the us pulled its airports air support intelligence and contractors servicing afghanistan planes and helicopters. This meant that afghan military simply cannot operate anymore and quote. Admittedly afghan leadership was significantly underprepared in the wake of the draw because as by afghan officials did not believe america will draw however according to andrew watkins a senior analyst for afghanistan and at the international prizes group research advocacy organization. There was no evidence that the taliban significantly increased their manpower and argue. The only reason why there's summer offensive was successful was due to a lack of us. Air strikes which meant that biden's administration shorter significant blame for the dismantling of the afghan government. What biden actually expect to happen when he pulled the entire the tire. Us presence from afghanistan if the afghan military dependent so much on the us occupation of afghan for the viability of their own independent military force. Then of course when they pulled out of afghanistan. The afghan military by itself was not sufficient enough to defend against the taliban if you're pulling out intelligence contracts that were vital for the dependency of the afghan military than have military is expected to fall when the taliban was advancing to the nation's capital and one of the other things that addition to buy actually blaming everyone except for himself for the marco afghanistan biden also discussed casualties in the in the afghan occupation. He said quote. Lemme ask those who wanted to wanted us to stay. How many more how. Many thousands more of american daughters and sons are willing to risk and quotes according to abc news. There's not been a single american combat death since february eighth twenty which was eighteen months ago. That's not to belittle the two thousand three hundred twelve american soldiers that lost life in afghanistan. But it is the suggests that thousands of stationed american soldiers in the lead up to the afghanistan pull out were not being bogged down by precipitous warfare in combat honestly by contrast more than fifty one thousand taliban fighters were killed by american armed forces which shows a major power imbalance in military superiority between taliban in american forces but aside from that by reportedly sent five thousand additional troops back in afghanistan to aid withdrawal despite his call for not putting sons and daughters at risk he just said that it was egregious to put american sons and daughters at risk for filled mission. So what is different about the five thousand additional troops. He sending back into afghanistan. Aren't those sons and daughters. Also at risk and to add insult injury tens of thousands of american citizens have been left behind it in afghanistan in the withdrawal according to the washington according to wall street journal an estimated ten thousand fifteen thousand new citizens remained in afghanistan so yes it is tragic. Every single american soldier died in. afghanistan is a tragedy. No one is disputing dance but suggests that afghanistan was a present danger to the current military soldiers. There from february twenty is simply not true and biden. Really closer to speech with i think when idiotic things that he said in his entire speech close with kohl's diplomacy he said quote. We will continue to support the afghan people we will lead before. Diplomacy or international influence in or humanitarian aid will continue to push for regional diplomacy and engaging prevent violence and instability will continue to speak out for the basic rights at the afghan people of women and girls just as we speak all around the world and quote and my question is just how. How can you negotiate with radical barbaric terrorist group that subject it's ethnic religious and gender minorities to brutal torture and murder. How can you negotiate with democratic for cystic regime. That is responsible for thousands of american lives. I mean honestly gonna ask nicely are gonna get on your knees and begged them to treat the afghanistan woman fairly. I mean i don't understand why biden continues to believe that's diplomacy instead of for actually using military forces is the correct way to go and this brings us back to. What was this for honestly at the end of the day with withdrawn. Us military forces from afghanistan he effectively reversed two decades of foreign policy and the initial mission of counter terrorism and preventing a staging ground for al-qaeda according to the pentagon united states government has been eighty three billion dollars in bolstering the afghanistan government and which is effectively gone to waste. I mean we spend easily billion dollars to bolster an afghan military but the afghan military is so reliance on the american forces to to help them to secure them. But when the american forces are removed from the afghan military to aid them than the billion dollar investment goes down the drain and now according to you defense and state department officials six billion dollars in military equipment including eight hundred fifty mine-resistant ambushed protected vehicles were abandoned in withdrawal which six billion dollars in. Us military equipment is now in the hands of taliban and other terrorist organizations additionally chairman of the joint chiefs of staff mark milley addressed congressional leaders and said that they will move the terrorist threats in afghanistan from medium according to axios which meant that. Obviously you're going to see a rise in terrorism and afghanistan and now that the taliban effectively controls its governments and to add insult injury the inside reports that taliban militants released thousands of prisoners from afghan prisons with links to islamic jihadist groups and al qaeda. So what has changed in the past two decades. We've tried to counter terrorism. We tried to decrease the the influence of kind of effectively imprisoning or killing al qaeda militants. We tried to decrease the the power of the taliban and we tried to effectively counteract attacks by the islamic jihadist groups. But it seems to me after this withdrawal after the dust settled what is going to be. The state of afghanistan will be similar to the state of afghanistan when we first invaded and his brings me to a new york times article which discussed heavier mackey. Who was a former first class army. Special forces soldier with several afghanistan deployments and will shot twice and he said in an interview with the new york times quote. I sacrificed a lot. I saw death every day every year. And the guys. I soaked with new would probably come to an end like this. But the chaos and made his andre after everything we gave. I just wish that had been away to leave. With honor and quote for people like mackey. There is a question that rang in numerous veterans. What was it for the situation. Afghanistan has become similar to america. I evaded two decades ago. All the bloodshed in lives lost in pursuit of counter-terrorism only define the terrorism revitalize. This president has trade the continuing efforts of veterans and committed a damaging dereliction of duty as commander in chief of the armed forces is devastating.

And today we're talking about whether buildings should happen at all in areas vulnerable to climate change. And it's a story that involves another tech giant google. Yes and for google. The situation is a little different. And i should say google is among npr's financial supporters. Yep disclosure Yeah they recently bought a lot of property in sunnyvale with plans to build a major expansion on it. it's actually more than seventy properties close to the shoreline worth almost three billion dollars. Whoa okay that's a lot and what's there now. Yeah this neighborhood. It's known as moffett park. It's really an office park right now. There's lots of these low rise office buildings with lots of big parking. Lots what google wants to build is different. It'll be offices of course but also housing which isn't in moffett park right now and it's it's not for employees necessarily. It'll be on the market for anyone. They're also envisioning green spaces and bike paths basically walkable neighborhoods. That's the direction. A lot of cities are going in. Right yeah. I mean getting people out of their cars and moving away from the suburban model. Yeah and changing. Our land use is a key strategy for dealing with climate change and cutting carbon emissions but climate change is also a problem for this neighborhood because sea levels are rising and rising increasingly. Fast right okay. So how soon will that encroaching water be a problem fairly quickly. I mean there's already been about eight inches of sea level rise over the last century. By mid century san francisco bay could see about a foot to two feet and by the end of the century. It could be as much as seven feet.

Increases in Extreme Precipitation Cost the U.S. $73 Billion

"Torrential. Rainstorms can flood homes. Wash out roads and bridges and destroy crops over the past. Three decades flooding from heavy precipitation has caused about two hundred billion dollars of damage in the. Us francis davenport is a phd student. In earth system science at stanford university. She wanted to know how much of that enormous price tag can be blamed on global warming. We've seen that extreme precipitation events are increasing in frequency or intensity and so we wanted to quantify what are the financial costs of those changes in precipitation. Her team analyzed historic rainfall trends and financial data about flood damages over decades. They estimated that between nine thousand nine hundred eighty eight and twenty seventeen about seventy three billion dollars. A flood damage can be attributed to increases in extreme precipitation. That's more than a third of the cost of flooding over those thirty years. So devonport says that people are already paying the financial cost of warming world. I think having those hard dollar amounts is really important for some of these policy conversations about what to do.

Fast Company filmon the AV club in appears regularly on Paul shears how did this get made his podcast and his latest book is called the history of the future and it's got rave reviews Blake welcome to the program first time guest right. are you ready hopefully this will be the first of many appearances on the program let's hope so I mean your excel you know I hope we have to bring the Friday the thirteenth bad luck I guess I've already crossed over into the net. hopefully we'll get up to. let me back listening to you and W. O. ours are giant of Philly at New York City which beams all over the east coast right now tell us a little bit about the history of the future we're going to dive into a talking about some specific people but give me an overall view. so this in the future it's about the you know the subtitles oculus Facebook in the quest for virtual reality but from my perspective and you know what the listeners are very familiar with virtual reality or don't know the first thing about it that's okay because I always want everything I write to be you know acceptable to anybody I was right with my grandmother in mind and what really appealed to me about the story was just a you know I set up to tell a story in a sort of checking on the state of the American dream circa twenty twelve twenty fourteen and and you know it for me the story was about this nineteen year old kid named Palmer Luckey who was at the time living in a trailer in Long Beach California he was obsessed with virtual reality which was technology that was essentially like you know treated like a punch line like flying cars and jet packs the thing that was supposed to happen the sci fi trope that never really did but Palmer was obsessed with it he had gotten out his trailer to basically be this mad scientist later and he was building all these headsets and he ended up building a prototype headset that was much better and much cheaper than everything else out in the world and then within you know start a company called oculus less than two years later they sold the Facebook for about three billion dollars and then a couple years after that he got fired for reasons that have nothing to do with virtual reality on really change my book and was really trust strange but you know he he's one fascinating brilliant guy and his quest to resurrect virtual reality was was really what drew me in this idea of kind of bring back up I thought to be lost technology and you know see see how the American dream was doing at this point in time there was a lot of controversy over his dismissal some say it was because of his supported phone Donald Trump at the time Facebook denies it says has nothing to do with his politics but they never really cited a reason why they let him down but they did by his business and apparently he made about seven hundred million dollars under the deal what do you think. yes he did very well no not right now he's only twenty five years old it's really amazing I remember the first time that I met him after I was given access and I he's he we always sort of storyteller out and he said you know I I don't know if I'm going to give you all the stories and I said okay I'll try to get them as I don't get him but you mind my asking why not and he said well you know and I will write a book myself when I'm much older I say like. you know we're like thirty when I'm really really old right. but he's kinda needling me a bit he's a he's a very charismatic guy but I'll tell you one thing that you know I find you know but I think that most readers will find Palmer endearing and find what happened to him this firing from Facebook to be a real travesty but you know he's one of those people that has has barely changed since since the money he certainly hasn't changed in terms of lifestyle he's you know whenever I go out to sea and we usually McDonalds and other fast foods he he he says he told me that you know the only way of life is really changes that he's you know he's building products and inventing things and you know now held by the two thousand dollar part instead of trying to craft one at home it is not the trailer go anymore his he. he is not only bought a nice house for himself in in southern California but also bought one for his parents so he's a good sign yeah it's like this really changed I'm sure we'll get into all that but it it's just crazy to think where he started this kid with a dream focus on this technology that you know I'm thirty six years old and and I remember when I was growing up if you had pulled me aside in the mid nineties when I was you know a young teenager and said you know how how big a part of the future is virtual reality can be I'd say it could be huge and you know one more managers come out at the mall they had all these BR installations and it seems like this really big deal this thing that was about to happen and then it just didn't yeah he just faded away and then I guess it's storming back and we're gonna talk about how Facebook value this company that two plus billion dollars for crying out loud yeah we are you was he generating a lot of revenue at the time. no I mean essentially Kickstarter was was there first way to generate money and and you know they obviously had crowd funding you know the crowd funding sites so money was coming in but it was essentially just a way for people to buy a prototype headset of the oculus rift three dollars and they sold out I think the select two thousand on the Kickstarter they they ended up raising a few million of the man of selling ten thousand but through their website but you know they weren't certainly they they weren't ringing in the revenue along the lines of what Facebook for three billion dollar price and that gets you know as of the first chapter of the book starts with the day of the acquisition I was able to get access to like a pied a never before seen video of mark Zuckerberg addressing the team and and he explains why he wanted to acquire them in part of the reason was that he felt like he had missed out on mobile maybe is because Facebook you know didn't really started to feel that. too late but it was it was a big computing platform shift in the early loss to mobile market like missed out on it and he wanted to be early to the next computer shift and on the one hand I would say that's pretty smart on the other hand I might say well you're living your fear of missing out guys you too much but but the most important hand I would say oh man if this book is it is still clutching the flag in the form of class or what is that mean for us given what we know about Facebook and and from the stuff that I had to return my book is that people scary. you must have anything proprietary that Facebook wanted. that's a great question because the answer is not really thinks reality it's been around since the sixties and a lot of the stuff that you know the patents have have laughed so wasn't so much like there was you know the secret formula that they couldn't almost you know only oculus could put out except that you know a big part of this business even though it's not only a hardware business selling headset so it was really their software prowess and having people like Michael a brass and John Carmack who are legends in the video game space but it was a surprising price to pay for a company with a with with not much I.

"Three billion dollars that's how much the US government is collected in tariffs in the last year with president trump threatening new terrace on China that amount could go up Josh zoom grown of the Wall Street journal joins us to talk about that welcome to the program thanks so much for having me to begin what does that sixty three billion dollars represent right you can think of the new tariffs in the old tax the US had a lot of tears that have been in place for decades and those tears have brought in about thirty or thirty five billion dollars a year and these are the amounts that US employers have to pay on the goods that they're importing from all around the world then there's also about twenty seven billion dollars that have come in from the new tariffs imposed by the trump administration and so it's when you put together those all tasks and the new tasks that you get to a figure that's his biggest sixty three billion that's the total amount but how much of it is coming from the China terror specifically so a really interesting thing is that in June for the first time more than half of the tariff revenue that came into the U. S. was coming from those things imported from China and to be clear it's not that China is paying these tires right it's whoever is importing the good to feel like we have to clarify he time talk about this story that's exactly right this is goods that come from China but it's the US importer that technically is assessed them the president is sometimes a little vague sometimes kind of downright misleading when he talks about this but it actually is US importers better assess this bill when they bring things and at the border at the ports a doubling in tariff revenue where's that money going well it hasn't been much of a windfall in the main reason for that is that the trade war has taken such a big toll on US farmers that the administration has rolled out to separate rescue programs kind of for the farm economy these been programs where farmers receive big direct payments to make up for other lost sales for China and as it happens those programs have been about twenty eight billion dollars so you've got twenty seven billion dollars in in your tears money but you spent about twenty billion to help farmers out during this conflict and so if you think of it that way that the net effect has been actually very slightly negative I'm sure those farmers would rather just make those sales right the program hasn't been very popular with farmers they would much prefer to just have more successful markets that they can go to rather than have to kind of accept government hand outs president trump tweeted earlier this year that with more than a hundred billion coming in to the U. S. and terrorists the US would buy agricultural products from farmers ship them to poor and starving countries in the form of humanitarian assistance has that happened no they looked into a program along those lines but realized it was pretty in feasible you know there's problems of kind of dumping large amounts of crops on poor countries because you can ruin their own agriculture sectors so they decided to just do the more simple program where you provide the direct payments to farmers now the part that is right there is that the total amount being brought in by these could get to be a hundred billion dollars I mean at the current pace it was six billion in June that would work out to about seventy two billion a year if it continues and there's talk of adding even more terrorists on top of that so you really could get two hundred billion being that number but at the end of the day this is not turned into some kind of windfall for the U. S. no I mean even when you account for the extra revenue that's come in from the terrace the US is still been running trillion dollar deficits so you know at all this money that's coming in for taxes is going right out the door in the treasury still having to borrow a trillion dollars a year just to find that kind of scale of government operations some people have written to me and said does this mean we're going to pay down the debt unfortunately the answer is no not even close let's just assume room he's a national economics.

"Five for three billion dollars. Martine lives in Vermont, she's a helicopter pilot an apparent afford children. She also used to be a man named Martin. Welcome. Thank you. Glad to be here. You are trans a lot of things. I'd like to start with your trans corporate life. Okay. You are a pioneer in the satellite industry and it all started in the Seychelles strangely in a group of islands off of Africa. Can you describe the linkage between your discovery and the Seychelles and your career? Sure. I really had no idea of whether to do in life when I was in the Seychelles in fact, I'd read a Newsweek article that this was supposed to be an ideal IQ said the pylons where you could just catch fish literally with your hands, and drink coconut, milk. So I dropped out of UCLA and went traveling over there feeling just really oppressed. By the L A and firemen. So I get to the Seychelles but it was really pretty dirty. I rented a small hut every night, the floor would fill with gigantic cockroaches. But I was there. So I just, you know, hung out and did the best. I could one day one of the Seychellois friends, I met asked me if I wanted to go with him up to the NASA tracking station. I didn't even know there was an Esa tracking station. I went up with him and there it was like I stepped into another reality. I went from like, you know, like the past to the future. Everything was super clean, and shiny and high-tech looking with blinking lights and a very nice NASA engineer gave us a tour and explain what they were doing. And I asked him, why is this in Canada? You have so humongous because it was bigger than a house. And he said, it's because the signals were tracking from Jeep space probes are so faint. They don't even have enough energy to light a light bulb. So we have to have a humongous collecting area in our giant satellite dish to receive the signal. And I asked him back. Well, what if the satellites? Signals were very, very strong and powerful. He said, well, it's not pow possible to launch those type of satellites today. But if it was then are receiving station could be very small and tiny and the idea donned my head that, if I could figure out a way to launch a powerful satellite, then everybody in the world could have their own tiny satellite receiving dish. I made a beeline back to UCLA kids. Like I received a kind of quasi religious epiphany in the Seychelles that I was going to connect the world with satellite communications, and this was a technologically practical thing to do. So I went from having a C average at UCLA to stray days because I had a passion that I was going to be the world's expert on satellite. Communications, you are in your late twenties. Correct. Other examples in your life of, you know, having the moxie to say, you know what I'm gonna. Transform something what we're examples of that in, in your childhood by transformative, examples, where from biographies, and also from science fiction, I was fascinated with the Robert Heinlein and Isaac Asimov series of books, and those examples of people who transcended their background to become, you know, the man who purchased the moon and people who went to Mars, those books, inspired me. Your mother always thought there was something unique about you. But I just thought, well, you know, welcome to being a Jewish mother. Did you ever have a sense of self that kind of extended beyond what you thought other peers, experienced though I didn't I really felt myself pretty much a totally average person. And lazy almond do usually trying to figure out the way to get something done with the least amount of work. And how about your parents? My, my parents were hard-working and great people. But my dad was a dentist for the retail clerks union. So he had kind of like a nine to six job. I'll my mother was a speech pathologist at San Diego State college, so she would go there and Keach each day, letting your mind was the most pioneering or innovative you experience, you had in the satellite realm.

"Five for three billion dollars Martine lives in Vermont. She's a helicopter pilot an apparent afford children. She also used to be a man named Martin welcome. Thank you. Glad to be here. You are trans a lot of things I'd like to start with your trans corporate life. Okay. You are a pioneer in the satellite industry. And it all started in the Seychelles strangely and a group of islands off of Africa. Can you describe the linkage between your discovery and the Seychelles and your career sure, I really had no idea of whether to do in life when I was in the Seychelles. In fact, I'd read a Newsweek article that this was supposed to be an ideal IQ said of violence where you could just catch fish literally with your hands and drink coconut milk. So I dropped out of UCLA and went traveling over there feeling just really oppressed by the L, A and firemen. So I get to say shells. But it was really pretty dirty. I rented a small hut. Every night the floor would fill with gigantic cockroaches. But I was there. So I just, you know, hung out and did the best I could one day one of the show friends. I met asked me if I wanted to go with him up to the NASA tracking station. I didn't even know there wasn't asset tracking station. I went up with him. And there it was like I stepped into another reality. I went from like, you know, like the past to the future, everything was super clean and shiny and high-tech looking with blinking lights. And a very nice NASA engineer gave us a tour and explain what they were doing. And I asked him why is this in Canada, you have so humongous because it was bigger than a house. And he said, it's because the signals were tracking from gap space probes are so faint. They don't even have enough energy to light a light bulb. So we have to have a humongous collecting area in our giant satellite dish to receive the signal and I asked him back. Well, what if the satellites? Signals were very very strong and powerful he said, well, it's not pow possible to launch those type of satellites today. But if it was then are receiving station could be very small and tiny, and the idea donned my head that if I could figure out a way to launch a powerful satellite, then everybody in the world could have their own tiny satellite receiving dish. I made a beeline back to UCLA kids like I received a kind of quasi religious epiphany in the Seychelles that I was going to connect the world with satellite communications. And this was technologically practical thing to do. So I went from having a C average at UCLA to straight days because I had a passion that I was going to be the world's expert on satellite communications. You are in your late twenties. Correct. Other examples in your life of, you know, having the moxie to say, you know, what I'm gonna. To transform something. What we're examples of that in in your childhood by transformative examples where from biographies and also from science fiction. I was fascinated with the Robert Heinlein and Isaac Asimov series of books, and those examples of people who transcended their background to become you know, the man who purchased the moon and people who went to Mars, those books inspired me, your mother always thought there was something unique about you. But I just thought well, you know, welcome to being a Jewish mother. Did you ever have a sense of self that kind of extended beyond what you thought other peers experienced though, I didn't I really felt myself pretty much a totally average person and lazy Alban do usually trying to figure out the way to get something done with the least amount of work. And how about your parents? My my parents were hard-working and great people. But my dad was a dentist for the retail clerks union. So he had kind of like a nine to six job. I'll my mother was a speech pathologist at San Diego State college. So she would go there and Keach each.

I'm pretty fast on my feet, only, use the calculator. Let's do the calculator twenty-five thousand. Both times one hundred twenty five thousand dollars equals three billion one hundred twenty five million dollars per year per year, and it's gone. It's gone. You're paying that in salary Mack. All of those people will pay income tax to the state to the federal government. All of those people will go and buy crap that wasn't being bought to the area, and they're all going to pay sales tax all of that would have been an entire bone or boom for the economy in that part of New York.

Provided a great deal more in in taxable income and in revenue coffers to the state, then the three billion that the state was giving up in in total tax rebates. The people overwhelmingly rejected it, and so for those of you who are listening in the pre show when I was talking about people and motives, and why we make decisions, and what people are not interested in how we misconstrue what the what people really care about. This is going to help this gonna make sense. But even if you didn't listen to that it's gonna make sense in in as explain it to you.

"New York state tax collections are Dowd. Nearly three billion dollars and budget concerns have arisen governor Cuomo said Monday, he announced a dramatic drop in state income tax revenue two point eight billion dollars, which he says is going to prompt him to have to revise his budget and reconsider spending on schools, healthcare and repairs. They're not going to have as much money to spend Cuomo blame the shortfall. On a federal tax plan. Backed by Trump Cuomo said the laws cap on deductions for state and local taxes at ten thousand dollars was to blame and suggested that it is anecdotally triggering high earners to leave New York. The whole in revenue in December which some analysts have called a December surprise and continued poor performance of New York economy in January of created a two point three billion dollar dropping anticipated tax revenues add to that the five hundred million dollar drop in revenues for December. The Cuomo administration had projected and the revenue hall is two point eight billion dollars. Now this thing they're blaming on on the Trump taxes called salt. And that's the state and local tax deduction. That was no longer allowed. And I love it, by the way. But but Cuomo Senate literally restructured the economy to help red states at the cost of blue states. Which is exactly what it did. It was a diabolical political maneuver. Why should red states be subsidizing rich northeasterners who are scaping the high tax rates that their states have imposed on them. Why should federal tax payers be subsidizing these people if you're going to vote for people that are going to charge you a top tax rate of fourteen percent. And then you're going to spend the rest of your life trying to avoid it. Well, then don't vote for it in the first place. But then don't ask us to pay for it. One more warned that the loss of revenue could not be made up by continuing to tax the rich. The top one percent who already contribute. Forty eight percent of all New York tax revenue. He said, I don't believe in raising taxes on the rich God forbid, if the rich leave. Exactly the top one percent of New York who are exemplary customer contested, not paying your fair share and all these other knit brains. So they're not paying their fair. Share are already the top one percent or forty eight percent. The top one percent is ninety three thousand tax returns. They have thirty one percent of the income and they're paying forty eight percent of all the taxes. The top one percent. Let's go to the audio soundbites here is governor Cuomo yesterday in all with a press conference on all of this was an economic civil war. It literally restructured the economy to help red states at the cost of blue states. That's exactly what it did. It was a diabolical political maneuver in the tax code. We are now seeing in the receipts the effect of salt. The collections are down to about thirty percent of the target, right? Is about a two point three billion dollar drop in revenues two point three billion dollars as a drop at this point in revenue as. Speaking for first graders here, I'm not going to air number nine. I'm gonna tell you what he says in it because I need to get to the meat in the next bite. He sets he speaks a damn slow. It's just get go nuts here. He said these changes fundamentally restructured our economy, people are mobile, they pick up their laptop and they move. They literally pack up a computer a move to another state. You do business over the computer, which means you're doing business in that state and your tax in that state. Not a New Yorker, we're losing we can't keep losing people this way, it's not salt driving out people governor Cuomo. It's your own independent tax rate, you're irresponsible spending. And the fact that you've kept coming back and coming back and coming back and soaking the rich over and over and over again, and there's nothing to show for it. You got a crumbling infrastructure. You've got a widening income back, you've got income gap. You've got nothing to show for all this money that you've been collecting. So now here is Cuomo admitting what you'd never hear a democrat admit what you. Never hear a leftist. Admit one percent of the tax payers. Speeding nearly half of all the taxes five percents. Sixty three percent of the revenue top ten percent. Seventy four percent of all the revenue tax the rich tax the rich tax the rich. We did. Now, God forbid, the rich leave before salt, a New York City tax payer paid about forty five percent after salt that tax increase goes up about twelve percent. Tax payer in Florida would see no increase probably would see a decrease and Florida also has the advantage of Noah's they tax. Yes is going to be the tipping point. Right. And you don't see Florida running out of money the way, you people are with no state income tax and no state tax. Why fled down here nineteen Ninety-seven? And here's what the governor in two thousand nine David Paterson said when he found out the reason, I moved out of New York if I knew that would be the result. I would have thought about the taxes earlier he was asked about me, leaving if I if I if I would've gotten Limbaugh would raised taxes sooner. So I've been down here since nineteen ninety seven. My parents taught me never to talk about money that it's impolite not good manners rude. And all that I would love to tell you. I was audited for twelve years by these people after I left I had to prove fourteen different ways for everyday to your where I was because they did not believe me when I told him. I was never there. You would not believe and you and so now I have a deal whatever I spent a day working in New York. I o x. I would love to tell you what that number is. But I'm not going to because I was raised properly. But I don't go there. And it's not the money. It's the whole principle of the thing. It's not that. I can't afford to go work in New York. It's just that. I'm not gonna give them the money. I, and that's why left in one thousand nine hundred seven to all kinds of criticism that I was being selfish and not thinking of other people. Well, I was just however many years Ninety-seven is from today ahead of the game magic. We'll continue on the networks. Sean.

"Yeah. And this is interesting ways to see how the shutdown a what it actually cost both the we're talking politically, but also economically as well. We're seeing here on Twitter that Lisa Desjardins from the PBS NewsHour. She's tweeting that the US economy lost three billion dollars to the shutdown and we'll never make it up. That's according to the Congressional Budget Office. And now granted that's three. Billion dollars is really like tiny part of the US has overall GDP so probably not going long-term growth. But another way to look at it is that three billion is this a little over half. What the president wanted or wants for for his border wall for border security, ginger Gibson. I mean, and that money is now gone from the US economy that money is gone. I mean, we were talking earlier about if you were going to go by car, you're probably not going to go by car while you're looking at potential shutdown three weeks from now, you might go buy a sandwich. But you know, you've also spent the last three weeks packing your lunch at home making your own sandwich. Maybe you do that for another three weeks. These are the impacts of shutdown. It's not a simple matter of, oh, this is just a procedural move that has minimal impacts it has real impacts as the callers have said on real people's lives. And I think that we get a little Washington tree. And and I'm I am also victim to do. So when we start trying to guess who the voters going to blame. I think that caller was right? The people in the wire and mad at everyone. I think Jim is right. That that's the kind of thing that makes voters say I want someone who's outside of this crazy broken system. People are rational at the end of the day, and they're going to try to vote in their interest and Washington starts to look more and more irrational, they're they're not going to be on board with anything. They're doing. Did you can we talk for a minute specifically about federal contract workers? Right because they are not paid directly by the government. But by the businesses that contract with the government. There was some talk about trying to pass them legislation to support them because there's no guaranteed they'll ever get their back. Their lost pay. They're often the most forgotten in this whole mess, if they don't show up to the federal agency that they're supporting the federal the there's their company can't build the federal agency in there for they don't get paid. There was a lot of them that we heard in the last few weeks their boss. Their companies were paying them anyway, but not all of them the small firms, and that so many that support the federal government weren't able to these people who not only missed their pay, but they aren't going to get the back pay. And I heard from so many even just my neighbors here in the greater Washington area that they started looking for other jobs that they spent this time putting their resumes together in applying for for jobs that wouldn't be affected by a government shutdown. We talked about the long-term economic impacts. We also might be looking at a long term brain drain from our federal government and from the support companies that provide contract services who say I just can't wait around for the nut. Schick shut down. I'm going to go somewhere else. Yeah. I was reading a really a moving story in the Washington Post about a a contract worker whose company was doing work for for the department of transportation, and because they lost all their income. The company ended her health insurance in her husband has some severe severe medical needs. Is there? So that's gonna cause long-term effects Neg terrible impacts in their lives..
