"Well, I would say hands down is the self-doubt that sets in around the midpoint. And I I think most of us are a lot of us feel this way. I always start a book with enormous enthusiasm. This book is going to make me millions of dollars. It's going to be turned into a major motion picture. I I feel like this is the best idea I've ever I can't believe I didn't have this idea. Years ago because I'd be so much further and my career this is this is the wine and I start books with that sort of spirit and energy and enthusiasm which I think is, you know, it's it's naive and it's you know unrealistic. It's just not practical but it's a great, you know, it's good to have that wind in my sails to think this is a great idea and I can't wait to get going on this and I'm usually able to keep that momentum up through the First Act and in the second act but by the time I get to that midpoint, I'm usually lagging a little bit midpoints are tough. They're tough. I find a lot of people find them difficult. It's really difficult to wage. The the the conventions of a three-act structure is really can be tough to maintain, you know interests and and height to your story at that point. You need to have a lot of things need to be juggling at the same time would be working properly and it could be hard to do when I often find that I get to that point and I'm you know field literally the exact opposite of the way that I felt at the beginning of the process and so for me, I think that I've learned that that's the case and so it's no surprise to me when that happens and you just kind of have to struggle wage, you know self-doubt is the is the enemy of you know, all sorts of creatives and you really if we gave it to ourselves out. We never accomplish anything so you just have to to roll with it. It's great. Well, let's use that opportunity. Well kind of use it on any known as we wind down.

"I was seventeen and it's somebody somewhere down every novelist needs to get the semi-autobiographical book out of the way before they can move on to other stuff and that book way to go was my semi-autobiographical the story of my closet teenager Hood a small town working at a restaurant. And so that was the first book I wrote and I you know, I kind of learned that the conventions of that that sort of genre and I wrote another book in that mode as well. But by the time I wrote keep this to yourself, I won't say I become bored writing contemporary. But I I think done what I wanted to do there and I have always been an enormous reader of suspense thriller Mysteries and I decided wanted to write a book featuring a gay teen detective and that's how keep this to yourself came about and I had so much fun with it and has been to this point by far my most successful book. It's what five words that's been uh, you know on all sorts the best off lists. I hear from our readers about it than all other books combined and I loved writing it so much. That's why I immediately started to write. I hope you're listening and I think that moving forward. I don't want to pigeon hole myself too much cuz who knows what kind of ideas might you know all the way up to the front of my mind, but I think mystery thriller is going to be my thing for the foreseeable future and I'm actually I have another y a thriller that I'm you know, kind of an editing at the moment and home Have a lot of submission this year and I think the next thing write is going to be an adult Thriller. That's my next my next my next step. So having written so many books and and have a practice down. What seems to be your Achilles heel..

"Jotting down ideas. I'm starting to see where the you know, general structure and flow of the story is going and at some point in both of those those two stories both had sort of Eureka moment birth. Our I had an Insight a light bulb went off over my head and I realized okay. This is what's happening. This is where it's going and once I've had those, you know, culminating episodes worked out in my head. I find the rest of place cloudy and kind of goes quite quickly. I'm able to drop in place placeholders or story signposts along the way and you know, I don't need to have faith every single thing figured out but I do like to have a you know, a loose roadmap that's leading to a very specific end and then I feel comfortable enough to sit down and start writing cuz I like to leave myself enough space to you know, surprised myself a bit come up with some have some characters just appear that I didn't expect that part's really important to me because that without that if everything was really rigidly plotted out and bought. Um, I think it would probably lose a sense of reality. I think it would wouldn't feel quite as natural. But I do also know that you know Mysteries rely on structure. Perhaps more than any other genre. So I'm you know, I need to have enough down there to get going comfortably and you know, have a book coming out in the spring I get the chance. That's not a suspense. It's not a mystery it is it is it more of like a road trip novel. Is that how you would characterize it? Yes. So when you get the chance that sort of a grant a different sort of book and it was written the the inciting incident how that book came about is is very different from my other stuff. Long story short. I when was back on the East Coast ten years ago. I met a woman named Robin Stevenson who is has become a very good friend of mine and she's a working writer as well and she became kind of a mentor to me in a very close friend and she and I when I left the West Coast after two years, we stayed in close touch, you know, we texted and the occasional phone call that kind of thing and she Ed. Both write primarily our young adult fiction is focused on lgbtq representation. I'm gay and she's also queer and it's important to us that our our characters are some of our characters in these books are you know representative of the lgbtq community and.

"I would have made my way to the end of my first draft and at that point, I I knew that could write a book and you know, the rest is history. It's great. Yeah. I'm right there with you and if I think had to describe own writing I probably would have done it the same way and and the audio book is very good too. Cuz he reads the audiobook. I think I've read it and I've listened to the audio book. Yeah. I have two it's great and I think the fact that he gives so much biography in it. Helped ground all the advice kind of as you were saying like, you know this man you see how he had to work hard at at where he eventually got and it's just not wasn't judging gifted to him. Yeah exactly this trip with your husband to the West Coast was finally your opportunity to commit yourself to writing a book but it had been sitting inside you for quite some time. So when did this or how did this simmering this this longing to write a book first kind of manifest itself in your life. Well, it was really early on I knew so I was your typical. Nerdy friendless rural child I lived in basically in the middle of forest. My parents were sort of, you know, not back to the Landers, but they bought an old farmhouse that they fixed up and down on neighbor kids. I have three younger brothers and from a really early age I and we had no T. And so I read and so like many if not most writers. I you know, I started off by being a really prolific reader and I realized quite at a at a young age that I liked reading stories and I like making up stories even more than that. And so it was very natural for me to page. Um, you know invent story-based games that my brothers and I would act out and you know at some point I started writing them down and through school. My favorite class was always English and I would love I love when we had the chance to write stories and share them with the class and when it when I graduated high school went off to University, it was basically know a no-brainer that I would I would take an English degree because I wanted a chance to read more and I wanted to write more and so I was always writing I was always writing stories and but when you're twenty-two and you graduate from school with a with $40,000 student.

I'd taken some really great creative writing classes. And I you know, I've done some what I think was pretty good work short stories and you know nonfiction that kind of thing but I decided to shift my intentions into film that TV and I went to film School primarily because in Eastern Canada at that point in Nova Scotia, there was a burgeoning film industry and it was an opportunity to make money in a creative industry. And so I you know, I believe they are not I decided that that was a good way, you know film is storytelling and I love film as well as you know literature and I thought this might be a better way to make a few bucks and eventually get stillbirth..

"Appreciate about about that book because as you probably know as I'm sure you know, there are many many books by writers about writing Hundreds thousands of them but there's something about that book struck a chord and I think it might have something to do with Stephen King's reputation. But more than that. I think he took wrote that book from a place of he was already a successful as you can get as a working novelist and so he wrote it very much in the spirit of I think he says in the forward. I've been asked to write a book about writing for a long time. And I finally decided you know, what I'm going to do it because I've learned a few things. I'm going to put these tricks down on paper and if they help somebody so be it wouldn't write the book to make money. He wrote it to get his his advice out there and the book reads that way and I will tell you that onto it works on two levels for me. And it continued it's one of those books I go back to regularly. It's broken into two halves and the first half is his writing biography. He talks about being a kid reading obsessively being into you know, strange stories that kind of thing horror novels HP Lovecraft you name it? And then the second half of the book is more of a let's get down to brass tacks water my specific practical pieces of advice for want to be or you know, emerging writers and the book works really well on both levels because of biography part gives you insights into somebody who we know and shorthand has to be one of the most successful working novelists of all time, but he came from you know, really gung-ho beginnings and Main he started writing in the laundry room of his trailer that he shared with his wife when they were struggling to put food on the table for their kids. They didn't have two dimes to rub together wage. And he gradually, you know by putting in the hours by putting in the work. He gradually took his talents and turn them into something and that's a really inspiring thing for anything.

The brand but they're not necessarily built for enduring value. And I think in my world in restaurants what need is a balance of those two things cuz sometimes no matter how much homework you do promotional items can be more popular than you think and so they last so it's a great way to get out there interact with consumers see some things in real time. But I do think that when you look at the core products, at least the ones I've done McGriddles and Pepperoni Lover's and stuff Crust Pizza those all have in their name something that you have to deliver on in a way that nobody delivered on it before wage.

"Because I always find the success without a plan or process cannot be repeated. It's a one-time miracle and you have a career full of amusing accomplishments because the same so what's the first thing you do when wake up and what's the last thing when you're winding down from work day? What do you do? You know the first thing I do assuming I know, you know some so our businesses are a little more fish. So it's not always a predictable business which I kind of like, but I well I'm getting ready to go to work. I look at my calendar first thing in the morning. I do all my emails some kind of set up to really tackle. The the biggest thing I have in the day, I feel that in the work time. I'm actually working on specific things. The key to success is to really focus as much energy like an on the biggest thing you have to manage that day. And I think that's really dead. Portent the last thing I do is when I'm leaving work is I kind of do a quick assessment to make sure I'm set up for the next day off is really a simple-minded process. But I you know at home it's really to unwind I very rarely bring work home Jody and I cook a lot we go out to eat. We love wine. So we just kind of relax and kind of charge that battery both, you know, the physical battery and emotional battery for the next day. So what's the best way those of us who are listening can get in touch with you? The best way to get in touch with me is probably via email. The one I used the most I've got a couple of the one I use the most is easiest to remember. It's t r i n s smashburger.com. Do you Ryan Ryan at Smashburger. Thank you. This is really amazing. My pleasure is great. So today. Tom Ryan left us with Incredible amount of nuggets and I just want to do a quick recap of some the big ones that will stay with me for sling for a long time, First is how Tom Define new products buy functioning form and how to make sure from day one. The core objective is purpose and he talked about these two words influenced choices home. Then there was this big caution that most of us we can need to go through and talk about is stop spending time planting each other that is not the path to win Bigg Boss. And that's the part where the new talked about creating opportunities, which is finding the latent demand the phrases that really hit home where what is there but people are not happy with what if she's not there, but we'll make them happy and I really think that foresight is the power and that's the part where you just broke it into three parts one is trusting that intuition wage. Off your psyche that you get it. Then you connect that because without that confidence you cannot go forward and meet that unmet need and finally make a meaningful difference. Also. Now when you talked about what words or phrases that's not in your dictionary mediocre and consensus. Those are very important. I think to avoid because wage once you go through the be kind was such an amazing advice for all of us in any industry is very important for us. And finally, you know, the whole concept of don't be scared to take the left turn because to me many a time when we are as you mentioned we are on an easy path life looks all settled. The big win comes when you take that risk and Jake left turn again Tom. This was such an incredible learning from you and thanks for taking the time to share..

"The following attributes that made it taste creating cetera that was driven not by an amateur since it was not driven by understanding an unmet consumer need it was looking at a competitor who was Finding Traction the marketplace and then doing what I call one-upping them is fine, a better way to execute their core strength with a meaningful difference for consumers not a copycat meaningful difference, but a really unique meaningful difference in an evaluation. It's more right. It's it's great tasting stuff but give people more of it. So that's probably those are probably the two biggest Dynamics I would say is you know, as I look at blank pages and certain categories. I always forget what's there and how happy and how consistent is that across the marketplace and what's not there? That could be a big idea to explore the second part of your question is how do you manage that wage? You know, I was fortunate enough early in my career at Pizza Hut to adopt a process from my mentor one of my mentors who really did a great job. You've seen heavy category users of specific product categories really understand what motivates them and then to bounce ideas off them in a very iterative way. So you weren't doing thumbs-up thumbs-down analysis. You were kind of guiding your way to find the Target and then once you've found the target emotional Target the the purchase Behavior based Target, then you'll be went at optimizing attributes really great really greatly. So whether it was taste or appearance or even value we worked really hard on those things to bring all three of those Dimensions together. And when you do that Guided by what consumers think are are really interesting different and at the same time equally or more relevant, that's where you come up with big wins. so to me, this was so fascinating for you to help me see that the first You trust your intuitive attribute your psyche about the opportunities. Then you're also showing me as showing all of us that one of the places we need to avoid is stop spending time in blunting each other because you're not moving anything there and then you connect to the unmet consumer needs but the need is met as you talked about a meaningful difference as seen by guess. I think that's very powerful at least once you establish that Target, you know to me I always say this to people cuz they asked me, you know, oh you're an inventor and it's I actually think of myself more as an innovator and I think the difference is this invention is creating things and some of those things have purpose and some of them don't have a differing levels of purpose Innovation is creating things with a purpose and so at the heart of everything I've ever done that's been highly successful whether it's stuffed crust pizza or McGregor. Or the Smashburger brand or anything else we want to talk about what was in its what was the core of that idea? Okay. What was the notion that we had a point of view that consumers found interesting relevant and motivating and to me we flushed everything out around it. But at the end of day that's what true Innovation is, its invention a purpose and that purpose is to read re-evolve something that already exists for somebody in a meaningful way big wins..

Would you give that young Tom Ryan am getting ready to finish the stage d? Be patient more patient. I wish I knew a long time ago before I finally caught on in my clicked in my head that no one wins alone. I mean the problem with being a PhD is you are an individual contributor until you're not and obviously, you know, that's a learned trait to make a transition from home, you know be the center of your own Universe feeling that you're part of something bigger with other people, but they knew that earlier, you know, and I think the other thing is that off, you know, can learn a lot from the best people around you but you can learn more from the worst people around you and you know at that at the time leading school we were everybody I was with in school was generally the same person from an experiential point of view and then you get out into the real world and and you know, I am I wish I would have spent more time watching the people dynamics of success and watching the people dynamics of failure earlier. It would have helped me. I can think of two or three things times in Iraq helped me in the last thing and I agonize. I've done I've done this twice in my life. I think it's what I call taking a left hand turn, which is the harder term and I when I decided to go on for a PhD that wasn't committed to doing that and I decided to do it and that was a left hand turn for me. It was not what why what every part of me wanted to go do and then obviously leaving home leading the packaged Goods business which was the path that most people with my background are destined to it was a big risk for me in a left hand turn to take to go out of the package because business into the restaurant business and and now I can't think about it any other way and then quite frankly leaving the my last biggest company the biggest food company in the world was a bit of left hand turn because dead I realized at that time that what was motivating me personally was to create and to create with teams who spent their whole time creating and I would become an administrator and I was like a gladiator that had to watch from the from the seats and the left hand turn was giving up all that which is easy by the way, and it's it's comfortable. It's not real stressful most of the time but it wasn't Dynamic can show the last left hand turn. I took was to lead McDonald's and come to Denver in too much more entrepreneurial things which have been tremendously satisfying so don't building on processes.

sure when you were there you were totally paying attention to the race and all of that minutes of it not were you in the pit I'm I was that's the middle part of middle yeah I was in the in the I don't now is in the center so we're gonna have again NASCAR driver Angela route will be on us rock will be on us on with us coming up in a little bit we start with our top story today the latest on the impeachment trial of president trump here's a recap of what happened on day three yesterday was eight more hours of opening arguments from democratic house impeachment managers again Democrats have had twenty four hours spread out over three days to lay out their case against the president today is the last day for them then tomorrow the president's lawyers are gonna take over and it's going to be an abbreviated session going from ten AM to one PM and there is talk may may not use all of their twenty four hours I'll get to that in a field yesterday lead house impeachment manager Adam Schiff and the Democrats the second day of opening arguments with big speech arguing for trump's conviction is closing line they got a lot of attention was quote if you find him guilty you must finds that he should be removed because right matters because right matters and the truth matters otherwise we are lost today democratic house managers are focusing on the obstruction of Congress impeachment article again if you want to hear my thoughts on that particular article and why I think the Democrats have a weak case for it you can listen to the podcast yesterday show on on the impeachment trial aspect you can find that just look for PM Tampa Bay on apple Google I heart radio ever get podcasts one notable new detail the came out of yesterday's proceedings was Adam Schiff invoking Giuliani associate live part of his recently released notes arguing they insinuated that the announcements of abide investigation was trumps precondition for Ukrainian officials not necessarily an actual investigation that trump was just looking for an announcement not necessarily a thorough and comprehensive investigation neck does too intense and whether or not the present was acting in the best interest of the country or in the best interest of his own political prospects that's what's at the heart of the abuse of power article in terms of what was happening on the floor senator Richard Burr distributed several fidget spinners to Republican colleagues before yesterday's proceedings began so they have their their digit spinners center Marsha Blackburn said she read a book yesterday under the rules of the corn laid out for senators prior to the trial clearly stated that the only reading materials allowed are ones that pertain to the matter before the Senate so again lots I I don't know if using fidget spinners is breaking now but but I do know that just reading a book that's what it was like what's trumps Buck art of the deal well he was reading that pertains he was reading a blog only loosely pertains to the trump administration and some things it's so you now the gray area yeah he's in right there yeah again this is all politics for the Democrats their base demands that they take this seriously and make the best case possible against the president for Republicans their base thinks this whole thing is a sham so acting like they don't care place well for some of them now there are a few Senate Republicans who are taking things seriously once you aren't leaving the chamber whenever they want war breaking rules and those of the senators facing tough reelection fights this year it's all about politics the biggest development that took place yesterday it was the sense among members of Congress and staffers the Democrats might not be able to get the numbers they need to secure new witnesses Democrats were initially targeting Susan Collins of Maine Lisa macaskill Alaska Mitt Romney of Utah Lamar Alexander of Tennessee Cory Gardner of Colorado Tom Tillis of North Carolina and Joni Ernst of Iowa but Tillis is now and now and colleagues in aids believe Ernst and Gardner are gonna be knows to ask for Alexander he's retiring from his Tennessee seat in the fall so you don't have to worry about blowback of the votes for witnesses pot is really close with Mitch McConnell so who knows Collins Makowski and Romney have all been clear they're open to witnesses but Lamar Alexander he has not said that more bad news for Democrats Axios reported that at a private lunch yesterday chiefs of staff to Republican senators agreed that one moment in particular had backfired on Democrats when house judiciary chair Jerry Nadler declared on the Senate floor that any senator who refused to vote for more witnesses would be quote complicit in the president's cover up publican senators were not happy about that including two Democrats need Collins and Marc owski they wore Ste another moment or not happy about was Adam Schiff suggestion that the twenty twenty election result can't be trusted so do you perhaps counterproductive moments from Democrats as for what's to come next in the trial we're learning today the president trump's team is considering using just a portion of the twenty four hours they're given for their arguments rather than stand there for hours on end defending trump point by point they may just cold big picture and try to end the trial as quickly as possible there's some talk this thing could wrap up by the end of next week we'll say and when they make their arguments they're really just gonna be talking to a couple of potentially persuaded ball Republican senators they don't want any defections when it comes to acquittal politically you don't want to have Democrats running around saying there was bipartisan support for removing the president so that is the trump lawyers focus going into their part of this opening stage of the Senate trial though that'll get you all caught up on where we're at Felix as our legal correspondent you've been monitoring this watching this anything stand out to you I mean I if I'm taking issue with the fact that everyone is just so kind of dismissive of the process in terms of like you know the fidget spinners anything it's funny and complaining about only having water chamber you're not following the rules yeah and it's all this political gamesmanship and I'm like if you did any of that if you were a juror you be removed improbably prosecuted right and everyone says like well it's not really a jury it's not a criminal trial but he's like history shows that this was model to be like a real criminal trial and criminal process in terms of what goes on so for me as a former prosecutor some of it's been the reaction has been kind of insulting because it's like you know what what's the big deal or you know they're doing it and you know they are what's this for the odd so interest guys called it boring the other day I was like I got news for people trials are not you know all flash and bang their detailed oriented really they're not I don't know the long water SP you trials are really interesting joke around about that but it's like to be serious for a second yeah it back to like my experience not like that what they're doing is they have like for example this is like a white collar case where it's all documents yeah a lot of you know it's very document intensive and you have to make it flow in a way that makes sense to people just like when I had you murder cases there were different parts there was a way in which you tell the story and some of it's boring like for example you have like crime scene tax the other important as far as how evidence gets into evidence in the trial you the chain of custody but I would streamline a lot of it in terms of you I don't need all thirty tax that really were out at the scene I just need the main one that was overseeing everyone so there's different nuances to all of this and it's you know it's kind of like this is so boring like you're acting like you know ten year all that was the point that I made yesterday I mean a lot of people have really boring jobs and they sit there for eight hours and yeah well just do it it's it's been you know so difficult for the senators to sit there right and I kinda I I'm kind of kind of not not not shocked because of the political nature of any out of there it's all like you said I agree it's like a lot of gamesmanship a lot of games Miniclip from dispersed prospect of being an attorney it is like okay this is like having a jury that just doesn't care about one thing that sent and I said jurors that are like you know this is stupid or you can tell they're getting fidgety right but I'm very very small case is like a D. Y. or possession of cannabis or H. shoplifting case but like on a murder case or something that's you know has some serious into seriousness to it they take it Sir I think this kind of does a disservice to the public debt will go now be jurors because they're gonna see this like well they can do it you know why can I ask that I don't know I didn't I think the public looks at it and they say we know where this is going we know the end result is going to be the senators know what the end result is going to be because again this isn't what's happening here this has nothing to do with the constitution or what's right for the country or anything like that this is all politics is politics on the democratic side this politics on the Republican side and I think that mixture where where politics is dominating that's why it has made this such you know a ridiculous couple of days where it's it's doesn't resemble what you typically see in a quorum adult AC and I kind of disagree in that respect because I'm looking at this yes are making political speeches but they're also laying out evidence right whether you lot you like what's happening in terms of the politics of it but this is a classic trial setting what they're doing and this is what you do the difference is is that they call this opening arguments this essentially would be a closing argument where you're doing all the putting all the pieces together and wrapping everything up so that the people are getting again confused about the process of it but it's like you know Republican or Democrat Republicans were doing it I watched Bill Clinton impeachment and they put the same level of detail into it and they had documents they had depositions they had video of this I've been impressed with not from a political standpoint but the organization in terms of having all those slides ready and like they're not playing around with stuff around up there you know so I guess there's just there's I think a different look at it as an attorney there's been so much politics leading up to this moment and and I think Democrats made a huge mistake having Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler handle a lot of this because they are viewed so politically right a little bit different rising yes it's a little bit different when you have a valid Deming's or somebody like that up there making the case as opposed to those two individuals especially Adam ship so the politics is so ingrained in this whole process that I think that's why you're seeing a lot of people just kind of dismiss it yeah I get that but I mean me going back to my lawyer roots right sixteen years I spend doing things like that it's a lot I mean it's certainly been a lot of preparation because where I gained they're basically gonna use up all twenty four hours yes we're is that the trump side doesn't sound like they're going to do that I can do three hours tomorrow and then who knows how much on on Monday and I don't even know if they'll get into to say things that I'm trying to wrap it up as quickly as possible to push I think Monday by noon at the latest yeah I with the high I wonder if they'll well the only thing on Mondays I wonder if they'll stretch it into prime time at least because you know the president's gonna want some of his team front and center prime time for the American people to watch again wargames venture yeah yeah exactly that's what that's what's mixed in with all of this coming up in a moment we'll talk about the Florida Supreme Court ruling that can change the state's death penalty law we've got that a really important story Fauria next European Tampa Bay from the mosque Nissan traffic.

"Which are Coughlan and Tom Ryan talking all things political whole lot going on this week. We mostly wanted to move into these last two segments, but this really want. I mean, we just had a government shutdown another one on the horizon. Chuck I question to you. Do you think that with the prospect of another government shutdown is there is there a bolt in the Republican ranks among the senators? I mean other words, I could see a handful of Republican senators go you need to get the two-thirds. To override a veto. And you know, the Republicans in the Senate, basically come back to Trump and say this is enough. We're not gonna I think it's a little early for that. I think it's a little early for Mitch McConnell to be pulling that card, and he's he's he's as disciplined is Robert Mueller disciplined about the process. I suspect though that there will be untreated from the vice president saying we can't do this again. I mean that was the most awfully awfully terribly orchestrated political show that I've seen in a long time. He I said I'm going to own it. Then he tried to Sam not gonna. That was I think bravado of the moment and wasn't well thought Sharon normal thing to do is try to blame the other side, he undercut his. On the economy that in creates an and the pain that it causes throughout for his petulance over this one issue. Whereas I think they could they could they could narrate a border security and immigration plan and bring forward something the question, I have now is are the Democrats going to get over the tips of their skis and and continue to try and push him. And not give him anything. Not not not acknowledged not in and continue to politicize a situation where he's paid painted himself into the corner. I hope not kinda they both has he he said he's got a while Nancy Pelosi says, no while the rats are saying, we'll do border security L. Let me let me give you a down and dirty quick analysis on Mitch McConnell, and the Republican party, everything that the Republicans have accomplished whether it's appointments to the supreme court or court of appeals the tax cut everything that. That they have accomplished is not because Trump wanted it. It's because Mitch McConnell wanted and Trump went along with and Trump airtran, which is why they're sticking with them because they're getting what they want. He is he is useful to them to that end. The one thing I will tell you about US senators is they do not like to cede their power to the presidency. And so when he is saying when Trump is saying. Border secure funding for the wall or shutdown again, or I'm gonna declared national emergency. They don't want him to take the power away from them. So I don't think you're I think that's going to be the bridge too far for Mitch McConnell. I don't see any executive order would would be that. Here's the crimson. You're not authorized the wall, I'm gonna take the vice president's can have a much bigger role in this next play. And here's the thing about the executive first off, he's he's he's kind of blown this whole idea. I'm going to declare a national emergency. If you're going to declare a national emergency you wait till the hurricane hits. Boom. You see the damage you go my God. We just had a an event that was too. Big large surprising. It is a national emergency. When you are out there saying. I'm going to have the right to call one. I have the right to call when I have the right to use it as a negotiating tool cracked that. You have it's just like he did with his Muslim ban. Everything every tweet every word everything he said was used against his policy in the courts. And they said look we have to look at what he said and take him at his word. You don't get the Muslim ban and same thing now with this. I think what you're saying what you're saying. Is you take this to court and it gets tossed in fifteen minutes. Absolutely. Yeah. Yeah. Irony of the irony that, I've noted this week is that L chop was trial. It's gloating. So, you know, and that's that's been a result of increased enforcement and increased law enforcement cooperation with the Mexican government and Mexican authorities, and we have extradited this guy up here, and and there is an evolution. That's taking place here, particularly with the new president of Mexico. And so there are things happening. And yet this this this narrative that the president continues to hold on of on is is a two thousand and nine two thousand and ten narrative when when the border when the border was out of control people don't remember that you can. Now, we know it's not I mean, there's. It's dropped two hundred people in lucasville. The other day that they got in. But it's also a Central American problem. Now, it's not it's central Americans and political unrest in Central America. Which which is a real problem for us and for our neighbors, Honduras, El Salvador or not addressing it is a foreign policy. Most reasonable proposal out. There was the new Mexican president. Who said, let's let's have it a multinational addressing which should be doing in the southern part of Mexico, meaning Guatemala Honduras. We should be partnering with them to address that we're not on a on a on a whole North American basis cracking. No, it's it's it's not a it's not a just, and that's the problem is the White House has been treated as an Honduras, a problem or a Guatemala problem. And even as said, we're cutting funding that was well, that's the wrong respond my favorite line. This is always to say. Yeah, we treat Central American Mexico like verse out of a Jimmy Buffett song when it comes to. Our foreign policy it's wrong, and they're our largest trading partner. And it's it is in itself a sign of of ethnic racism that we do not talk about that part of the world in the way that we ought to because it is critically important to our future our economy and the stability, particularly the southwest. Okay. Want to move to statewide issues? Michelle you Uganda has put in a proposal to prohibit the dropping off of early ballots. You get you get an early ballot in the mail you hold onto it passed. The deadline for mailing it in for whatever reason either either your forget or you want to vote at the last minute you've been we've been allowed to drop those off at the polling places. She says no more I disagree with that wholeheartedly. I off my wife is one who gets the early ballots and she holds onto him till the last day, and she has an excellent reason. She is watching the news and sometimes her boat changes based on information that comes out towards the end of the campaign. Sometimes there are difficult choices. But she what what Representative ugity rita's doing to solving a problem. That's not a problem. Well, the problem, I think I isn't that right? Most of those votes have been tilted democratic. Well, here's the here's the fundamental problem is on election night in two thousand and eighteen we didn't know how many ballots were in. I mean, there was an estimation. That the county recorder's were making of how many they had that needs to be fixed. Because that's a compliment somebody when somebody. Count you scan. It you lease minimum as a minimum. You could know how many ballots are in the box. You don't you don't need to count them. If you want to count them, I've been told that's going to be an exorbitantly could create longer lines, etc. Etc. That's a that's an operational. And that's a budget question. We should know how many ballots are in the box by the time that seems like not very hard to do. And we should know who those voters are or at least they're claiming to be and then be able to make some analyses based upon what you treat them. Not unlike the way, you would treat them if they were mailed in. I mean, the argument is a male. Delivered a policy argument is that. And is that an early ballot is meant to be voted early. It's not an election day ballot. So if a voter then does show up on election day, they should be treated as an election day voter their ballots should be run through the machine the problem again with that is that if they're not going to their actual precinct where there they go to the regional voting centers. Where many of these ballots have ended up the none of the machines. You can't have all the machines or you could. But it's a massive engineering issue to punch in your precinct on that scanner and then run that ballot. That's going to take time. So at the very least I would say, I don't agree with not counting. That's crazy. That's that's that is voter suppression. That's wrong. But for a confidence underlying confidence in the overall political system. I believe we should at least know who's voting. I don't think anybody has a problem with that. I I think that you know, the only thing that we've endured as a result. Is it it takes a while to count? These. It seems to me that's a small price to pay for. Yeah. For democracy, and we are providing voters, which ISIS you can take him in and the advantage of taking it in. There can be a half hour our line at the at the at the in your precinct. You got a mail in ballot. You walk in you handed, and you walk away. It's not it's no different than handing it your post. I think this is an issue really of getting up to speed on. Technology software is software designed you code. If you coated the. The precinct on the physical ballot. You have solve your problem in those can be scanned anywhere. They could machine would have to be reflective of that. Well in a pay paper on my cellphone. I have a scanner and I can walk to any bar code. And find out information about it. There's no reason why we couldn't do the same thing with our voting process. What do you think's going to happen with this one? I don't, you know, given the split in the house and the narrowness and in the view in the Senate, I think the Bill will end up being amended, and hopefully have some thoughtful input is to what we actually ended up doing to talk about the very ideas that we're having here. I don't see that Bill moving forward. He will not have the sport in the house. Okay. We will be back, and we will talk about taxes the governor. And we have had a veto. I think it's the first gubernatorial veto of his term. I think so so big deal when we return in the think tank, we'll be back in just a moment.

I I don't understand how they get away with you know, broadcasting some of the things they broadcast on here. So the meet the press on right now. Do they have a license for that? They must've com. Viacom which owns who does which one is Viacom on they. Yes, CBS. Void certainly. Yeah. They wouldn't buy something like Russia. It wouldn't buy something like this. If they weren't I would mute this. But I can't because the snakes sitting on my Muteki win. Let me you can just push him aside snake survey nights. He's not going to bite me Is snake. that a snake on your monitor or happy? So there's cheddar. There's foxsports impact wrestling. This is all free. You just go there. And you just watch this for free because right? It's ad supported this look at all this college sports. I've I've seen this. I mean, I thought what were we on Pluto TV briefly? We were we were. I know we were in negotiations to be on Pluto TV. I'm not sure if we ever actually got I think they wanted us to do stuff on us to they out our ads and stuff. Right. That was the problem. It was too much work for us too. So seen that's on here. Nervous design here CBS. Angela their founder, we did talk to them. Oh, okay. Interesting. So so what is his what is his strategy? What is his bowl his strategy is he just got three hundred forty million dollars. That was a good strategy. What would I what was I thinking? Look at all the stuff on here. They've got music channel Jesus. This is crazy. And I. Legit because it wouldn't exist. If it weren't legit. Right. Like. They're just they put all these agreements together. So the really what Viacom's buying is. Is these agreements what? Wow, an audience. How big is Pluto? I mean, it's a it's a micro streamer. It's super tights, micro streamer. So. Yeah. It's not. That's what's interesting about this. Let me see if it says here, Tom Ryan who I guess is the guy we had on triangulation. It was going to it will continue to serve as a CEO. It'll be independent upon closing of transaction should close in the first quarter subject to regulatory approval. But frankly, as actually assists unlikely deal this size would get much scrutiny. It's just fascinating to me. Three hundred forty million sounds a lot to me. That's because you're a small fry. I guess I am if you're thinking big, you know, you gotta think you'd accord. But also, this is an interesting strategy on Viacom's part. I think that's it goes along with acquiring vid. Con for instance. So Pluto TV had twelve million monthly active.
