"Thurston. So we're talking about the Catholic Church. Apparently, um, the Vatican is not happy. Catholic officials are unhappy after there have been reports. The reports that were on this, Um, blog, which is run by conservative Catholics that exposed some people within the Vatican. And within some, uh, diocese in the United States. They particularly focused in Newark, New Jersey, for some reason who were using grinder. Where there were priests who have been using grinder grinder is a hook up app for people who are gay, Uh, for people who are bisexual, and you know, I don't care. Yeah, really. I think they've been pushed into it, um, by the doctrine. Of the church, which I think is backwards. I think it's hurting the church in terms of recruiting more clergy, and in terms of this inclusivity of you know the people in their parish, who you know, may want to be devout Catholics may believe so much in the tenets of the church, but who find themselves being vilified and called evil and, you know, not accepted for who they actually are. I think the church needs to have a come to Jesus moment as it were 80 88 tennis, the telephone number. 80808 10. Let's go to Scott. He's in San Jose. Hi, Scott. Welcome to KGL. Hi. I didn't want to add that. I think some of the practice there is set by the Bible or biblical texts. Paul himself seemed to believe that Jesus was coming back within his own lifetime. Any advice Christians not to give up their version or the opportunity to be in a relationship. Unless they absolutely had to do so, which is one, of course, 99 point carried out 25 decimal points Christians do choose to marry rather than to keep their themselves. Oh, I don't know. Unmarried and unattached. Uh, so I think the priest would probably look to Paul as an example. And maybe even to Jesus as an example being unmarried. Well, the way that was that wasn't Paul Gay. Oh, I don't. Well, he in Romans. He makes it very clear that homosexuality and Christianity are not compatible. So I so I would. I wouldn't catch that. And I've not heard that. But I did want to add that you know for those who seem to think that being um, not being allowed to be married forces or somehow guides priest to become pedophiles. I would argue that there that they started out as pedophiles first, just like some of the Boy Scout leaders who are looking for a way to have easy access to Children. That's what's really going on parent Catholics and they aren't I agree. I agree with you to a large degree. I do think that it's an opportunity, especially when there's a short Of of Young men who are interested in joining the priesthood. I do think that's something that is used as an opportunity for people who are pedophiles to get in, But I'll tell you something else that I God, you know, hand to God, I believe And that is because I know Um, from a very close perspective about the rapes that occurred in the seminaries and the scandal, and in particular, I'm talking about the seminary in Santa Barbara. Um, my brother attended that seminary and he had friends who attended that seminary who live in the North Bay and I went around the Bay area and some of them exposed. They were part of the lawsuit against the church, and I've interviewed a number of them. It was horrible. What was done to them? It was, you know, all of them. My brother was not one. As a matter of fact, he walked in on something and one of the priests punched him in the mouth. He was like 16 years old, um, that But this was going on and the prefect of discipline down there was one of the worst offenders and he would call a boy up into his room. And he would spank the boy would make him take off his pants. And then he'd spank him. The kid would be screaming in agony, and then he would rape him. Um, it was a horrible circumstance. But one of the boys that they knew there who was Treated the worst who was victimized the worst. He became a priest himself, and he became an abuser. And so I think part of it. Not all I agree with you, but some of it I think happened because of the abuses that took place in the seminaries when these kids were teenagers and left their families and homes and they went and they were being controlled by these priests who were supposed to be next to God. And they did the things they wanted, and I think they were indoctrinated into that lifestyle. And then they became abusers themselves themselves and thought it was okay. It was cyclical thing, which is sick, A six cyclical thing. But I do agree with you that some of them use it as an opportunity to get in there so they have access. Hello. Thank you. Thank you, Scott, I I appreciate your phone call. But and we have. Paul has a passage out of the ST James Bible That makes reference to marriage is from Timothy. Three to King James version, says a bishop then must be blameless Comma, the husband of one wife, so this makes it sound like the Bible says you should be married. The husband of one wife, so and we do know that there were Popes who were married. I also got a message from one of our producers are no. I'm sorry from one of our listeners saying that there were there was a monk in particular who was found to be having an affair and was castrated As a result. That was his punishment. I know I was in the dark ages. Mm. All right, Let's say let's uh let's go to Steve. Steve's coming from Berkeley. Hi, Steve. Welcome to K G O. Hello, Pat. Hello past those wonderful continue what you're doing? I mean, never. And I always love it because I turned it on. I don't know what she's going to be talking about. But I always seem to like it. That's good. Keep us keep us guessing. Okay. Let me straight Quick story when I was a child, and I'm almost 70 years old now, And when I was a child, my grandmother ran this church down in the Bay Area. No names? No. Nothing. It was Episcopalian. And the head of our church. Was very close to this one. Another priest. His name was Father, John. I never really knew the dead guy's name. I think I think he was a John, too. But later on in life, my grandmother in her later years and because she would never say this out loud and kind of her lucid, she lived almost 100. She commented a couple times about Them. This shows it's too bad that father John and Father John never found wives and all kinds of stuff and I looked and I go. Well, Nana, Um I thought there was six. I'd heard a weird rumor when I was because I used to be at the service. So the long story short is it that my mother confided? Avian said they were lovers. I went I looked at my mom, I go. How do you know that? You know, honey, things get around and I go. But why didn't they throw him out of the rest is just Come on, honey, It's the church. You know, Nobody cares that much. And I mean, that's kind of how she reacted to it. Everything. And of course, I never got to ask my grandmother about it. But so what I'm getting out of my whole point of my story is that is that it was there. I think in some places it was it was acceptable. Something that wasn't or basically just like anything else In the old days. You just look the other way. Yeah, well, the Episcopalian church is a bit different from the Catholic Church, although there's so many similarities, But I kind of love that story. I love the people found love. And I would love to think that priests in the Catholic Church would be encouraged to find love allowed to find love supported celebrated when they find love I I think it would be wonderful if they had families, and I think it may make them better priests because they would be better able to counsel their flock. It could also add complexities because you know your focus should be on your family. And the flock can be distracting. But isn't that true for any kind of job? Any job where you're doing service? Hey, listen, before we run out of time I want to mention Charlie wants Charlie Watts died. Um Charlie Watts was the drummer, longtime drummer drummer for the Rolling Stones, and I want to share a little bit of information about you know, he was the guy. He always seemed like the shy guy. The straight guy. The guy who avoided all the That Keith Richards, you know, drug drama and the, um Mick is the blue collar working man. He really was. You know, his father was a lorry driver. So a truck driver. His mom was a housewife. He was born in London in 1941. He was he was passionate about music from the time he was very little, But what he really was in love with was jazz that he was the drummer for the Rolling Stones. Um, he fell in love with the drums because he heard Chico Hamilton, and he taught himself to play by listening to records by Johnny Dodds. Charlie Parker, Duke Ellington and other jazz giants. He worked for London advertising firm after he attended Harrow Art College and play drums in his spare time. He did a lot of artwork. He did a lot of drawing like when they were on tour. Um London was home to a blues and jazz revival in the early 19 sixties..

We're Yeah, Debilitating. Okay, we're vaccines help to help to eradicate. How were the vaccine programs rolled out worldwide. And how long did it take? Um, that would be our benchmark.

And how long did it take? I don't know The answer to that. I really don't know the answer to that. I mean, I I believe I don't know. I mean, it seems like smallpox had been around for such a long time. I think I read somewhere that there were even Egyptian mummies that showed that their evidence of smallpox, So it's been around for such a long time. And I think But I may be wrong about this. I think that the first vaccinations were of military people in the United States soldiers. Um yeah, I think they were, like, 200 years ago. I think Actually, the Spaniards did that They carried these kids that had it. And then they would cut, you know, with a little knife, and then they would somehow implanted in somebody out. You know, to give them the Oh, yeah, I was pretty good. Yeah, but I mean, given that we are, you know, this is like to 300 years later.

"I'm misunderstanding it, But, you know, just anecdotally. Seems like our weather is just weird. Like a lot of it. It seems more temperate. Then I remember like from my childhood.

COVID-19 Vaccinations Will Be Mandatory for City Employees in San Francisco
What Exactly Is Consent?
"Were talking about consent and just for our listeners out there i just want to give a quick definition. The definition definition of consent is permission for something to happen or agreement to do something and this is what consent is not. It's when someone says no the absence of a no saying yes. While you're intoxicated or otherwise incapable of giving consent not saying anything repeatedly asking someone to say. Yes or pressuring them to say yes until they do and go. I was going to add to that whether someone says yes or no. It doesn't that's one thing but for people sometimes feel like just because you're in a relationship with someone that their bodies automatically yours win. That's never the case either

"There's so many different spins and twists that people try to put on you. Well we're excited to to wash alongside you this whole time and we don't want to spoil anything but one thing you've mentioned before matt season had a lot of topics discussed and there's a lot of things that happened in the midst of matt season that have now you know had some type of consequence good or bad on your season right chris. Harrison isn't there but the one of the big things that stood out during massey's in was the drama and it was a focus of the show in here almost famous. We are critical of that. We didn't know who to blame if it was the show itself or if it was the cast and then we watch your preview and it looked really great at first and then it looks really dramatic with a lot of fights and a of arguments. Can you just let us know like is this season would to be like mats with the cast or does it feel like a refresher i think you guys are action. Assi bromance like never seen before the bond that these guys have is is very fun to watch. I mean of course. There is some drama but overall. I don't think that that's going to be the theme. Do you remember. Ben how we thought that tayshia season was so great because it was generally generally drama free. I feel like watching your teaser. It's actually a big fake out to us. Because i can sense by watching these so many times. It's like they use the ambulances drama. That's not really going to be drama. They use blake as drum. I don't think blake's gonna be drama. I think blake robert comes in next week and he's not a huge splash because he comes in early enough. I think a lot of the drama. That we see in the teasers gonna be fake drama. And i'm getting more vibes like we're actually going to see more of the love and relationships about and i think that in general we get more of the love and connection through the bachelorette franchise and we usually do with the bachelor. I agree with you. What someone who's watched the show. The bachelorettes are always a little more successful in finding their person. And so i do hope that there is more love stories than any kind of drama for sure. Yeah i hope so also is more fun to watch. And i will and i don't mean to i mean i think you're going to be your own person you're gonna shine in this in your own unique way. We just haven't seen it yet because we only seen lapis owed but with caitlin which is who right. Now i see the most with ashley will say tayshia. Her season was fairly drama.

"First in season episode of the almost emma's podcast four years. In if that makes sense so guys we have katie thurston season to recap episode. One and i gotta say. I was pleasantly surprised. I'll be honest. I think based on our podcast last week. You may know that my expectations were canelo and also say that from the scenes from the rest of the season. I don't know that we're having monumental or totally different. But i think this is a nice group of guys. And i think that i'm getting taste season vibes from them. So think it'll be fun to watch ben higgins. What is your initial impression of katie's season my initial impression. Well here's the truth. I we honest come on. It's so much more fun. Yeah my my honest. Opinion is was kind of what i said last week. I think katie is going to be really great. I think she's going to be very likable. I don't feel like. I still got to know anything more about her. Which is why big announcement. We have katie coming on the podcast today right now on this episode after this segment the bachelorette herself will be here but to be honest. I'm going to tell katie this. I don't feel like i know anything about it. I don't feel like. I knew anything more about her from watching this episode. I enjoy her again. I think she has a lot of kaitlyn bristowe in her. I think she's going to be a very likable character. I think we're gonna relate with her and a lot of ways. I think he's gonna take it seriously but it's going to be funny. Then she's going. Allow these guys relax. A lot which i would always say was caitlyn's best. Maybe skill set for me personally was just that. She allowed me to relax and be myself and say stupid. Stuff do stupid stuff but in terms of the episode itself. I thought it was fine but if anybody's listening for four years they've heard now eight different times from me because if we had i think episode one is the worst episode of them. All always no matter. What i don't i'm just not a fan of episode ones because they just feels like i'm excited for the season to start in the episode. One heads it's a little anticlimactic like i'm more of this episode. Five to the end type guy. I know i mean same here. I think like i like the fact that this wasn't so like kitschy. Were in a lot of limo exits. That were like trying to be showy or overly sunny in wacky. So i liked that I think i got to get to know katie. A little bit more just by the guys that she was showing interest in like people involved. The cat and i love that she loved the cats so much. There is a moment watching this episode. Where i was like i already like katie. Just like don't like and then the guys at she showed the most like it wasn't the most handsome guys. It wasn't the guys that started in and tried to be smooth. The guys that she showed the most interested in where the guys like. I can hang out with that dude. Like he seems to just want to have a good time. He seems to be somebody that would make life interesting like i was gay. I i'm. I'm enjoying watching it yet. You made a good point..

"And you've heard me discuss for years. How civics is no longer being taught in many of our schools how now generations of americans are going through our education system not learning about the active role. They're supposed to be playing as citizens in a democracy. Well this is just crazy for a long time and you know. Obviously when i was growing up back in the day you had civics class you had government class and in in my high school student council was actually a class that you got credit for so you met every day as the legislative body for the students in high school so i was. I was like fully immersed in the concept of learning about how government works. And what our your my role is in it as i said. None of this is an accident. I think that the fact that we've we've sunk to the slow point now the corporate powers that be would much rather have a passive uneducated society that follows its roles with no questions asked and not knowing what questions they even ask and so for the past few decades. The american people have been trained to be consumers rather than citizens. Well today i am joined by guest. Who like me wants to change that.

"IPad Thurston. So we continue our discussion about the mass shooter yesterday. But we're broadening this discussion to mass shooters in general, You know, there's some speculation that this killer in the latest mass killing suffered from mental illness that he was bipolar. We don't have confirmation on that. There's also some discussion that a common trait of mass killers is that they're on psychiatric drugs, particularly anti depressants. There are those who speculate that a common trait is the killers have been bullied in their lives. Not that they themselves have been bullies necessarily, but that they themselves were bullied. And then there's this issue which arose yesterday the issue of toxic masculinity and it's the toxic masculinity that I really want to focus on today. Joining us is Dr John Mathew Fabi, and he's a board certified forensic and clinical psychologist and a forensic and clinical neuropsychologist. Dr. Fabian Thank you so much for being with us this afternoon. Thanks for having me Pan. Appreciate it. Yeah, well, the first thing I want to do is try to have some sort of understanding of what toxic masculinity even means is that something that is used in a clinical setting or is that some term that just kind of come into our vernacular recently? Well, I say it's come to our vernacular but also is becoming more of an issue amongst psychology and psychiatry, and so in brief There has a lot to do with a number of areas and weaken, you know, look at social media, social media, media culture and really looking at You know stereotypes of men being socially dominant, but then having other, you know, really traces or concerns of misogyny, And I'd say homophobia and these attitudes believes and perceptions are sometimes Become what we call toxic and and and so I think a lot of folks think that these issues maybe have a nexus or connection with violent attitudes, Aggression and even Get possibly murder. How homicidal behavior is this idea this toxic masculinity? Is this something that's unique to the United States of America because mass killing seemed to be Well, I think that the mass killings may also be related to certain you know, gun laws, which may be a topic for another day, But it's far is you know this even starts in childhood? Elementary school. You know where there's you know, boys are raised to be tough, strong, masculine, not be passive. They're raised two to compete. Win and you know the Times will cost and I think where we see a lot of this is in these mass shootings at schools, and that's where a lot of the ones we hear about occur and I'll often You know the the youth is meek bullied as a history of, you know, being bullied, and this just builds and builds, and it made some point. Blow up Now, those who do bully you know, certainly can be violent and aggressive as well. I think, though, that when we're looking at mass murders in school shootings we off often think of the victim of bullying as the one who becomes a perpetrator way. Do you see some of that, you know, in in these cases Um, yeah, I wonder what it is that we're doing, Societally because things have certainly changed from, say, the 19 fifties in the 19 fifties. You know, there were if you weren't um, the typical image of macho male you might be called a pansy. You might be called something worse, something more derogatory and it must have been really hard. Especially for males them, but we didn't have the kind of mass killings that we have today. What is it we're doing in the United States that is causing Boys to have such a bad perception of themselves and what it means to become a man what it means to be. Masculine in a good sense. Well, I think it starts often within the home and You know, it's a very complicated topic we're looking at, you know the home versus society, but I think there's a lot more stressors going on, you know with, you know, just in the society with With men, females as well that we did not have back back then and even thinking more specific about just a social media stressors and You know again, I think that there's more emphasis on just winning domination. It all costs and men and men you know, boys and males or Justin, typically not. Really socialized into sharing thoughts, feelings expressing themselves. And dealing essentially with their emotions or or depression there, socialize more to be self reliant, and we look at that, and the text of emotions pitifully build, and are the individuals more likely to be depressed? And increased stress on turn two substances have problems with coping and the more stressors and the less the person as of coping skills and social support and the less you know they have assistance in dealing with this more like they're they're gonna be acting out and it's not really a trade of men to get help to get assistance. You know men are trained, you know, socialized to be again self reliant, and you're you're not going to be asking for help and looking weak. Well, how then, Um, you know if it's a it's familial and societal. How do you recognize that? There's a problem that there may be a new issue, especially if it's a male and they're holding this kind of thing in and trying to cope on their on. What would parents do? What would teachers in schools to what would co workers too? If I mean how would they? How would they recognize that this may be manifesting? Yeah. Well, we've seen that with just a lot more education and even what you and I are doing right now and just having these discussions and the exposure to it. A lot of folks would not really be familiar with the term toxic masculinity unless the Garrett gets out in the airway and just to learn about it, And so it is a bit of a nebulous topic..

"Play K G O a 10 once again, Here's Pat Thurston. Good afternoon. I'm Pat thirsting. Tennessee Davis is my guest. We're talking about Abraham Lincoln. In light of it being black History month and the month that we also honor Abraham Lincoln. So can we were talking as we went into the break. Oh, I should mention don't know much dot com Is Ken's website? You can order all of his books. They're They're fantastic books. Can you were talking about Lincoln statement about saving the union being his foremost goal? You know if you could save the union with slaves He would do it. If he could abolish slavery and save the union. He would do that. Um, but he changed. That's right. And Frederick Douglass as you mentioned in that speech, and it is really worth going back and reading at one of the lines that jumps out at me when I read it recently, is that Douglas says nobody whom knows Lincoln or met Lincoln could hate him. He was genuinely moved and had a great appreciation for Lincoln, the man but he no In that speech that Lincoln had this problem that he was confronting saving the union or ending slavery. Hey, couldn't do both at first, but eventually he came to see that by ending slavery would help win the war. And that's one of the reasons that the Emancipation Proclamation was announced January 1st 18 63 the formal announcement and Douglas talks about waking up that next day and knowing that people were going to be free And what an extraordinary moment that was for his people. Lincoln had moved from this idea that slavery was horrible. It should end but it was protected even as latest December 18 62. He suggested that the government would create bonds that would be used for a man to paint and compensate owners. But that could last until 1900 was 37 years to go, so he was willing To compromise on that, but by the end of 18 63 a. Certainly by the time he gives the address at Gettysburg in November, 18 63. He has come full circle and knows that this is a war that will ultimately be to end slavery and a few months uh, before he had announced Emancipation Proclamation, which only technically Read those and slave people who are in the southern states in rebellion. Another words states over which Lincoln had no control, so it technically Was a freedom, but it actually freed very few people. At first. It was a very slow process as territory was taken over gradually. More and more enslaved. People were emancipated under union armies. But this was a slow process, but there's no question that by the end of the war Lincoln is pressing hard for the 13th amendment. Which would be that if I'd only after his death. The 13th amendment was, of course, the amendment that ended legal slavery in America were there. How many, Um Slate. I'm sorry. How many states that we're not in rebellion. How money that remained in the union was slavery still going on? There were four so close border states where, um, where slavery was still legal and practiced under under the United States during the Civil War and again because those states were not in rebellion. They were not going to be freed their commitment to do that, and that was a hell of a battle. And that was a long, hard battle as well and brilliantly told by the way and Steven Spielberg's film about the 13 13th amendment, so it's a wonderful civic less and maybe not as thrilling as some of others. Spielberg's other movies but of wonderful civics lessons. I loved it. I thought it was terrific. I took my kids when it first came out, and they were way too young to appreciate it, but it was, but it was it was. I loved it. I just thought It was incredible. And it taught me things that I didn't know Previously. And so of course, it was the first of three amendments the 13, the 14th and 15th known as the Reconstruction Amendments. The 14th amendment, uh, gave citizenship. To the formerly enslaved who had been emancipated. And then the 15th amendment gives black men the right to vote so very important. The 14th amendment is one of the bedrocks today of our judicial system. It's the amendment that has these words that are so important that we are all entitled to equal. Uh, equal treatment under the law and due process, And those words are so important, And they've been used in many, many important Supreme court decisions since then, including Brown versus Board of Education and Loving versus Virginia, and they're still talked about today. I mean, people discuss it in all sorts of cases that come up can I know you got to run? But I do want to thank you because we think we know history, but we don't And that's why people should get your books that don't know much dot com Because you really do help us to understand his history is fascinating. It's not boring. There's no not for years. It's not dates and battles and speeches, a sweat. Extraordinary people do in real places. And when we read about it that way and see the connections of the past to the present, it brings it alive. So thanks So, as always, pat for allowing me to come on and talk for a little bit about my love for American history. Ate it so much can because you inspire that love in us as well. That's Tennessee Davis, and he's gotta run nine. Pat Thurston, You know one of the things that I think A lot of Americans don't realize Is that the Emancipation Proclamation? There's two things. A lot of people think that the Emancipation Proclamation immediately freed all the slaves. It didn't The Emancipation Proclamation was signed during the war, The war was still raging. It was the third war third year of the war, it was still raging, and when he signed the emancipate Should proclamation. What it is was freed the slaves in the rebellious and in the states that we're in rebellion the rebel state so if they were fighting against the United States that they were fighting against the union there, a slaves were determined to be freed. Now that didn't happen because they didn't feel like they were under the jurisdiction of the United States. And so it was, as the war continued, and as the union was gaining ground. When they would take over a particular state and put it back under union control. At that point, those people were freed, and in those four border states that Ken was talking about. They were not freed. They were still those were states that were still part of the union, where slavery was legal under the Constitution under the American Constitution, and they were not impacted by the Emancipation Proclamation. It took an amendment to the Constitution. Ah, hard, hard fight that Woz, but really important one and you know, Ken talked about speeches. Um, I just really encourage people to read some of the speeches of the time Like the one I was talking about The Frederick Douglass. There were a lot of speeches. This is not considered his best beach lot of people. If they know Frederick Douglass at all, they know the Fourth of July speech. What to The slave is the fourth of July. To me. I was more touched by this one at the Freedman Memorial. Because He paid. It was it was all about Lincoln and because he started talking about who Lincoln was, is a man. You know what his attitudes were? Then he talked about more about what he learned about Lincoln and about the changes Lincoln went to until he came to this point, and he was so laudatory of Abraham Lincoln. His respect of Lincoln was so vast it was. It was so big So, Yeah, it was Abraham Lincoln. Flawed. Hell, yes. Are we all I would hope we would all be able to admit that one of the things that touched me about that speech was that Frederick Douglass makes the point. That Abraham Lincoln was the man for this time..

I'm well, This is a tough day. I mean, this is gonna be a weird weird week. But this is the day of the Georgia run off race, and normally we don't pay that much attention to run off races. But this one is huge, and it's huge for I think more reasons than what people are anticipating. You wrote a piece that I read and common dreams. I'm not sure where it was first class. List. It was probably at your own website, Robert rice dot org that this is about Mitch McConnell. And by God it is. Do tell. What are the stakes in this race? Well, if it turns out that both of the Georgia senatorial Elections off one bite the Democrats that you have a tie in the Senate, a 50 50 Times, 50 Democrats and 50 Republicans going into this new Congress, which means that every tie is going to be Really determined by the vice president because under the constitution, the vice president has the winning vote where the determinant vote in a case of a tie, and that is obviously a comma Harris. And that means in turned that the Senate becomes democratic. Joe Biden will have a much easier time putting legislation through legislation through then it's Mitch McConnell continues to be the gatekeeper and which McConnell remember. Has been the gatekeeper. Mitch McConnell right now has well by last count about 400 piece of legislation from the House, the last Congress sitting on his desk, but he's badly even brought to a vote in the Senate, including election security legislation. Including election security, including civil rights voting rights, including, uh, legislation that really goes to almost the heart of every issue. Uh, that has been a controversial issue issue in this country is that most Americans want over at the last. Certainly the last four years, he has stopped it good next tracks even before it would otherwise reach. Alright that looks desk. And he also because he controls the agenda of the Senate. That's how you know he's able to block any of this legislation from debate or vote. He's also stack the court, he stacked the court by refusing to allow the nominees of Barack Obama judicial nominees, including Merrick Garland to even be debated at absolutely astonishing. And he used the justification from Eric Garland that a we were within a year of the president. This was this was in Barack Obama's last year. Obviously on. Therefore, there should be no vote on a president's pick for the Supreme Court. So it delayed that then have the Let's call it audacity because it really his audacity when that loose Peter Ginsberg died to let Donald Trump's nominee within the Wheatley, Weekes everything end of Donald Trump's term of office. Be loaded on on be put into really on the Supreme Court. That's exactly what's happened so he could continue to block Uh, Joe Biden's picks for the Supreme Court. Okay, Um, let's let's talk about how the, uh how the person who is sitting in Mitch McConnell's position, the majority leader how that person is selected to be the one who sets the agenda because if we do end up with a 50 50 mix of Democrats and Republicans, presumably the whole body votes on who is going to be their leader. And if that's the case does Kamila Harris then cast the tie breaking vote in that in that vote as well? No, actually pat. It becomes even more interesting than that.
