Kathleen Madigan Wants the Wheels of Justice to Move Faster on Trump

"Was going to say, you know, stuff that Donald Trump, we how many, how many years have we been making fun of Donald Trump? And yet there is something sad and hilarious, but also kind of terrifying about him declaring for president again. How did you feel about that whole thing? Well, let me put in the context of my Missouri and Tennessee, my friends that are Trump fans. Oh my God. They've all moved on. Yeah. They moved on to desantis. They moved on to Ron, because they think that he's like more presentable. I would say, which I don't disagree with. I think if we're going to say is which person is crazy, we're going to go with Donald, like which person you may disagree with everything Ron DeSantis says, but he doesn't seem like a lunatic. Yeah. It just seems like he seems like somebody you could sit down with and say, hey, a, B, and C and you're going to get DE and F back. Instead of Trump going, I don't care. I don't know. You tell me you're an idiot. I think they seem to be happy. I don't even think he really cares. I think he's just going to go over. I really seriously no kidding. I think at this point it's about merch. Yeah. He's become he's become a road comic. That's why now it's maga, because now they have to buy a new hat, right? Make America great and glorious, again. Well, glorious. I go, oh, that's going to be hard. That was going to be a lot of misspellings. I feel like a struggle. A lot of rally starts to say glare is. Yeah, I think it wants to do the rallies to raise money and sell merch. Yeah. Well, Travis and I have a dream that we could get the trifecta. He will be indicted in prison and run third party. So there are still, you know. Possibilities. We can have it all. Yeah. Yeah. You guys are very, very hopeful, I see. Yeah. I don't I've lost faith in the, I know the wheels of justice move slowly, but I don't understand how you can orchestrate and then say ready set go to attack on the capitol and then you get to run again. Right. That's why people lose faith in all this. There doesn't seem to be repercussions. Maybe there will be, like, my dad was a lawyer to judge at all that. He goes, give it time. I'm like, you'll be dead, Dan. How much time are we talking about?

How to Fight Inflation by Cutting Spending

"Leader soon to be speaker McCarthy. I want to get to politics, but first I got to talk to you about the big the hard to make it happen. Got to cut spending because inflation has been part driven by fiscal excess. We've got to cut regulations in most places and yet big tech has to be brought under control. How do you get the trifecta? Cut spending cut regulations get big tech under control with meaningful oversight regulation. Those are very good points and those are key elements of an economy that's strong. You know, people will tell you how did this inflation begin? Well, it was the American rescue plan with Democrats voted with this $2 trillion. They've spent more than any other Congress. We have to curve this spending. We have to eliminate many things of what they've wasting money on. We need to be able to pull back money that's just sitting there that's been wasted through the process. It'll be easier if we get the majority in the Senate, which I believe we can through the appropriation process together. Remember the roles of Congress. Now, president will still be in The White House, but I believe we could really start to put ourselves on a path to a balanced budget. And that's what we need to do.

"Through December 9th, 2022 for more information call 8 5 5 5 6 5 55 19 or visit stand with Israel tour dot com. We are in Sparta and menelaus, the king of Sparta is describing to telemachus. What he may or may not know about the fate of Odysseus. But he doesn't start by getting right to the business at hand. I'm sure here's to Lama because like, what news of my dad. And menelaus is sort of like, well, let me tell you about my journeys. Now, his journeys are extremely interesting. But nevertheless, you can imagine from telemachus point of view, he wants to get to the specific question on his mind. But here's menelaus, he talks about the fact that he's being buffeted by winds. And it finally turns out that he encounters a sea God named proteus. And proteus, well, the word a protean in English means changing. And we get that meaning from the qualities of the Greek sea God proteus, who can constantly change his form. He can change into an animal, he can change from one animal to another animal. And he is very difficult, difficult to pin down. And it turns out that menelaus in order to talk to proteus to get something out of him and in fact to get proteus help. In making his meaning menelaus journey, a home, he's got to sort of pin down the sea God. In fact, he's instructed. Listen, if you want to get information, you have to catch the sea God proteus. And he's going to try to get away from you because he's proteus. He changes forms and sure enough, he has many layers talking to tillamook as the old God still remembered all his tricks. He first became a lion with a mane then a snake and a leper than a mighty boar than flowing water than a leafy tree, but we kept holding on. So menelaus kind of hangs on for dear life to this guy, finally forcing a proteus. To relent and to help menelaus, but also to give valuable information to menelaus. Let's remember that after the Trojan war, you've got all these Greeks and they're all on their own. They're going different places. They don't know what's happening to each other. Now, one of the things that mendeleev learns is that Ajax also called Eos was drowned. His ships were sunk. Poseidon drove him to the rocks of guy ray, then rescued him from the sea he would have lived, but he made a crazy boast that he survived the waves against the wishes of the gods, beside and heard his rash word seized his trident and mighty hands, hit the guy and rock one half remained the other on which Ajax sat as he boasted, cracked right off and fell into the sea and carried him deep down. Now Ajax or ions is the this is I asked a younger. Let's remember that the older iops or Ajax committed suicide after he was denied the highest honors of the Greeks, they gave Achilles armor to Odysseus not to Ajax and so Ajax out of shame and disgust committed suicide. This is the younger Ajax. He's the one who raped Cassandra in the temple, a great sacrilegious violation, and the idea here is that he's being punished for it. He's never going to get home to Greece. He's going to die at sea, but he almost lived. It's almost like the gods. He had some gods on his side who took pity on him, and they were helping him out until he started boasting, hey, listen, there's some other gods are trying to get me, but you know what? They're not gonna get me. And this kind of second sacrilege you might say, this taunting of the gods causes Poseidon, the God of the sea, to take his stride and smash a rock and down goes Ajax to the bottom of the sea. But the important information from the point of view of telemachus comes at the end of this narrative. Where proteus, the sea God says that he saw Odysseus. He saw Odysseus trapped in calypsos island, quote she traps him there, he can not go back home. And so all of this occurred a couple of years earlier. So as menelaus is now telling it to thalamic as he doesn't know for sure if Odysseus is alive now, but he's saying, listen, I do have valuable information. In fact, more information than anybody else, because the sea God named proteus told me that your father, your dad, Odysseus, is trapped on calypso's island. So think about this from Homer's point of view. This is a kind of a clever narrative device to let telemachus know. That his father is still alive. To let me guess would have no other way of knowing. And menelaus, as I say, doesn't know for sure, but he at least is able to give a kind of last known location of Odysseus. And as it turns out, at this point of the narrative, sure enough, Odysseus, as far as we know, is on calypso's island. So this is a way of kind of bringing telemachus up to speed, till I make us now knows what's going on, and now the narrative for Homer can shift as it starts to shift in book 5, where Odysseus himself makes his entrance and the story picks up now with Odysseus on calypso's island.

"When we left off in Homer's Odyssey, the young telemachus had just visited the old warrior nest or and but Nestor was one of the first people to come back from the Trojan war, and he did not know anything about Odysseus. Odysseus let's remember is the one guy still missing. No one knows if he's alive or if he's dead or at least no one seems to know. Now, Nestor tells telemedicine, look, the last pan that we know who did come back is menelaus, menelaus, let's remember the husband of Helen of Troy, menelaus is the guy who was in a sense betrayed by the Trojan prince Paris, who spirited away his wife, Helen. This is what started the war. And Nestor tells to alumni kiss. I'll send my son with you. And remember, this is also the Nia. You do what you can to help your guest and Nestor shows excellence and. Until I make this arrives in Sparta, menelaus is the king of Sparta, where he and Helen rule, and again, till I make a treated really magnificently well. Reading from Homer. Your majesty, there are two men outside. And strangers who seem like sons of Zeus. What should we do? And mendeleev's replies, untapped their horses, lead them into dine. So they are then served a feast, and after that quote, they were taken, they went to take a bath and polished tubs, the slave girls helped them wash and rub them down in olive oil and dress them in wool cloaks and tunics and seated them beside the sun of atreus king menelaus. The carvers carried platters with every kind of meat and set before them cups made of gold. So notice how all of this treatment of the body, which is to say the bath, the meal, the clothing, is provided before menelaus even gets into. Hey, why are you guys here? What are you looking for? How can I help you? That only comes afterward. And telemachus asked many layers. Do you have, do you have news, what is your story to tell me? And menelaus actually begins with a kind of a broken hearted story. He says, first of all, while I wandered, this is after the Trojan war. By the way, menelaus was buffeted by winds, he ended up in Egypt, and in fact he and his wife Helen spent years. In Egypt 7 years to be precise returning only in the 8th year after the war. Remember the Trojan war lasted ten years. So 18 years menelaus has been a way and this is why I wonder there accumulating wealth, someone crept in and killed my brother his own scheming wife betrayed him. Now this is, again, notice that it came up in the previous book, Nestor referred to the murder of agamemnon here as menelaus talking about the murder of his own brother. So Homer is keeping in our minds, the listeners, the readers, the you may almost call it the alternative Odyssey. So in the Odyssey Penelope, Odysseus wife is completely faithful, but what if she hadn't been? What if she had taken up with one of the suitors and the two of them plotted to kill Odysseus? That is a kind of possibility, a very real possibility happened in agamemnon's case. That's why these sections are here. And then, and then menelaus says, I sit here in my palace morning all who died and often weeping. And I miss all these men, but one man most when I remember him, I can not eat or sleep since no one labored like him Odysseus. Wow, so many laces now saying, you know, the guy who's been away the longest, the guy I missed the most, Odysseus, meaning to lamachus own father. And until I'm a kiss greaves with menelaus. The two of them sit together basically and cry. The crying for somewhat different reasons. Of course, is crying because of his two reasons, really. One is the absence of his father, but the other is his plight in Ithaca. The fact that he is, you know, surrounded besieged by these suitors who wish him ill. They want to get rid of him. And they want to sort of ruin his estate and one of them marry his mom, and so this is a telemetry is facing a lot of difficulty. He's crying over his own predicament. And menelaus is just crying over the great loss. Of the Trojan war, and although he has his wife back, they're relationship is uncertain. I'm not surprisingly after the after what happened. Helen shows up, very interesting scene, a kind of a cameo appearance by Helen, who's a minor figure both in the Iliad and the Odyssey, although she is in some ways the triggering force of all the events of both the Iliad and the Odyssey, and it says that Helen sort of takes pity on these two men who are kind of grieving together, she decides to mix some wine with drugs by drugs. She's using a drug from Egypt. It's called nepenthe. It's a drug that sort of dulls pain. Takes away the payments. In fact, it's so effective that it says that you can that you can actually experience the death of your own family and even though you are full of intense grief. This is a drug that will take that grief away. So Helen administers this drug both to mendeleev's and to telemachus to temporarily alleviate their pain before they can sort of get to the business at hand, the business at hand, of course, being does menelaus know anything concrete, anything specific about where Odysseus is

"802 four 6 8 7 51 that's 802 four 6 8 7 51 I'll go to balance of nature dot com and use discount code America. There's a gruesome murder in Memphis that is making the news and this to me is interesting in itself because, first of all, it is a black male perpetrator, and it is a white female victim. Now, normally the media is like, let's not touch that one. Interestingly, in this case, I think the only reason they're covering it is that the woman is a billionaire. She saw an extremely rich family and so as a result, there is some coverage of what's going on. But you've been getting into some of the details and it's a gory. It's really gory. So this woman, she's a runner. She's not just a jogger. She qualified for the Boston Marathon. She's a very good runner and Eliza Fletcher. And she's a kindergarten teacher. She teaches at a Christian school, kindergarten, and mother of two boys, 34 years old. She goes jogging at four in the morning. In Memphis. Now, sometimes when you work outside the home, that's the only time you can go jogging, right? And especially in the heat and all of that, but you know, we went to Memphis a couple of months ago because you spoke for an event there. And my uncle, who's from not who lives in Knoxville, Tennessee, said, oh wait, you're going to Memphis? Yeah, you might want to think twice. It's a really bad city. It's very. I mean, the funny thing is we were I told Debbie, let's go, let's go eat some of the famous Memphis barbecue. We concluded it was not at the level of Texas barbecue, but that's a different story. The point is even though the restaurant was locked. We thought we were going to Memphis to eat barbecue, but they didn't have it. Oh, right. We ended up at a but that's all to say that that we were staying in. It was just the West End, and we were gonna go to some restaurant. It was just like three blocks away. And I was petrified. Number one, I didn't even want to take my purse with me. I really was very afraid to even go there and I'm not usually that squeamish I don't think, but I was afraid. Well, it's a democratic city. It does have a bad crime braid. We were warned about it. I was worried about it. Apparently, Eliza Fletcher probably was taking a chance for 4 a.m. a four 30 a.m.. One thing is that she was only 20 minutes from where we stayed in the hotel, you know, that's where she got kidnapped, but apparently this man was like lying in wait, like, he was a sexual predator. First of all, he started his crime wave when he was 11 years old. He raped somebody at age 14, and then when he was 16, he kidnapped somebody. And that person escaped because they happened to see a police officer or a security guard, and so the kids, him and another guy, fled. But they would have probably killed him because they were taking him to all the ATMs to rob him. But anyway, so because he's a sexual predator, I'm sure he saw this woman jogging, and thought, you know what? She's easy prey. Nobody's looking, what he didn't know was that there was a camera that caught the whole thing. And basically, it caught him getting out of his SUV, running towards her, they struggle, he puts her in the front seat of the passenger seat of the SUV, and for about four minutes, he's there, and then takes off. Right? So they already have, you know, him at the scene, kidnapping. So they didn't actually find her body until Monday in a vacant home, like right outside of the house, near his brother's house. So then there's other video of him washing his SUV. So this guy, I mean, he has he got him. They have his DNA at the scene. They have his cell phone tracking, which by the way. Wait, telephone traffic. But they have it. Okay, so they have them at the scene. And so now I'm curious. I'll be curious to see what the cause of death was if she was raped. I'm sure she was. I mean, I think the message here that I get out of this is that you guys don't go to Memphis. Well, not don't go to Memphis. It's rather that you've got one political party that's on the side of the criminals. Yeah. And that's why in democratic city is this kind of mayhem is occurring. We see it in San Francisco. We see it in Chicago. There's so many murders in Chicago. I actually saw something on social media. They were saying that over the Labor Day weekend, there were only 55 murders. Oh my God. They were actually celebrating the fact that the number of murders was like just around 50, not our usual number. So these cities have become habituated and accustomed to, this is what democratic policies get you. Yeah. And just a couple of nights ago, there was this guy in Memphis running around shooting people and, you know, he was just so anyway. Yeah, it's very scary. It's scary for really our society because it's just getting even in Houston, where we live. I mean, since we're two months from the midterms, the Democrats have changed their tune on the crime issue. I noticed that a number of them, including fetterman and Pennsylvania. Well, he wasn't really for defunding the police. He was in the early for reducing their budget and bringing them into line. And so on so Democrats are pivoting now and Republicans should not let them get away with this. It's very important to emphasize and play back what they said right after George Floyd that they wanted to dismantle these police departments. They wanted community workers to take the place of policemen. This was a mainstream position in the Democratic Party. They need to be held accountable for it. Some of us wish we could rewind the clock when it comes to our held exercising, climbing stairs, all the things young people take for granted, these aren't things that

Don't miss Uncle Tom two from executive producer Larry elder and director Justin Malone with Brandon Tatum, votive bakam and Chad O Jackson watched the movie on demand will buy the DVD now at Salem now dot com that Salem now dot com. We are going in this segment to talk about the race between beto o'rourke and governor Abbott. Now according to the latest poll reported in Bloomberg, Abbott continues to lead a fairly steady lead 7 percentage points 49 to 42. This is a poll done by the university of Houston and Texas southern university. I guess a little bit of a closer race that makes you or me feel comfortable. That's right. I mean, the idea that this guy is even a viable candidate. It's absurd. It's absurd. You know, man boy. Well, I mean, look, forget the man boy. This guy is a socialist. I mean, he's, you know, he's a far left Democrat. And what he wants to do to Texas, and I was making some notes because I went to his website and I was looking at some at some things of what he has planned for the border for nondiscrimination for people that discriminate against trans or, you know, whatever he wants to legalize marijuana. He wants to legalize abortion again. Take away the AR-15. He definitely wants to take away the AR-15s, the AK-47s. He actually loves mail in ballots. He wants to do same day voter registration, this guy is bad news. He wants to raise the minimum wage quite high, you know, and so basically what he wants to do to Texas is what the Democrats did to California. And so I was looking at this crazy woman, mothers against Greg Abbott, she actually, I forget her name here. But anyway, Nancy Thompson, she's an Austin mother. Probably Hispanic. She looks Hispanic to me. I know Hispanics because I'm one. So anyway. Well, it's funny. You know, I don't think you are recognizably Hispanic. But when we're at the airport, people come up to you all the time. They actually, there was a woman that was waiting in line to get to get her ticket and she was, you know how you're boarding group one, two, three, whatever. She was boarding group 5, and she wanted to get in the line of boarding group one and the attendant, you know, the worker was she was like, no, this is boarding group one. You're boarding group 5, and she was looking at her, like she had no idea what she was saying. So she looks around, and of course, you know, we are, we are one K so we get to board first or not first, but you know. And she looks at me and comes over to me, as you know, and she goes, what are in Spanish? What is this woman telling me? Like she didn't even ask, do you speak Spanish? No, she actually started speaking Spanish. Anyway, all that to say is that everybody knows I speak Spanish. By my looks, apparently. But anyway. Back to the mothers. This is a mother's group that's four beto. And so, you know, oh, yes, because she's so she is so worried about her children and about other women's children and all of this. And I'm like, have you read what mister beto wrote when he was a teenager? I mean, I know, listen, I know that people change, right? But I don't think this guy has changed. And by the way, my favorite name for him is fake Mexican, 'cause he's not better. I mean, you are reading to me some of his oh my gosh. And they're just downright pathological. It's a murder fantasy about running over children. Okay, miss Thompson, you want to vote for a creep like this because oh my goodness. Okay, so as I neared the young ones, this is beto, okay? I put all my weight on my right foot. Keeping the accelerator pedal on the floor until I heard the crashing of the two children on the hood, and then the sharp cry of pain from one of the two. I mean, what a weirdo. What a sicko. I mean, really. And then let's talk about policy. I mean, let's look at the border. Oh, yeah. Open border, right? He wants to make it easy for these people to come through, okay? He's not saying close the border. He's not, he's not even really saying let's adhere to the federal statutes of border security. Let's execute the law. He's not even doing that, but again, he's a Democrat and look at Biden's border. This would be beto's border. So now we would have cartels. And Biden. We have coyotes. We have fentanyl. And that's another thing, miss maga, miss mothers against Greg Abbott. What about the fentanyl issue that affects children in Texas? Are you not concerned about that? The crime. I mean, we're going to, in a little bit, we're going to talk about about a crime ridden city and do we really want to make Texas cities. Now, the Texas cities that have the worst crime are the Democrat run, but I mean you want to get the whole state run like that. Oh boy. Well, I predicted that Abbott will win by ten plus points. I hope typically. My mother, every morning, my mom goes, I Debbie look at beto, he's catching up she gets real upset. My real Mexican mother gets very upset about the fake Mexican, making waves and there is a liberal contingent in Texas. Look, because it's a red state, doesn't mean we don't have blue cities inside the red state, Houston, increasingly Dallas. San Antonio. And he wants to expand Medicare. Do you know that that will bankrupt Texas? That will bankrupt Texas. But apparently he doesn't really care. Most of these guys are entitlements are a way that they solidify their political support battles, no different. He's a left winger. He'd be a perfectly ordinary politician if he was in Rhode Island or in California, but he's a very dangerous figure to be to be doing as well as he is. In Texas. It's pretty colorful at the grocery store and the produce section, all the vibrant colors of fruits and veggies.

"Obligation, home title scan. That's a $100 value free. Again, that's home title lock dot com, code radio, home title lock dot com code radio. This is our W in my Friday roundup where we like to tackle some of the issues going on and also throw in some personal stuff. And we were talking this morning about the kind of near miss in Chile. I think the reason I'm interested in Chile is because this is a prosperous country in South America. And it's prosperous because of markets, it's prosperous because of an explicit commitment to free market principles. And for this reason, the election of this Gabriel Boric, this leftist actually a communist in his youth, very bad guy. Very disturbing because I suppose what it could be is that because Chile is prosperous. They feel like they can take a chance. Well, and I have to say in chiles in the Chilean society, this whole notion of this wokeness has reared its ugly head down there. And so when he campaigned, he made the right wing candidate. I can't remember his name right now. Appear as a hateful, you know, a xenophobic. It didn't like indigenous people, didn't like, you know, people of color and Jose Antonio cast. Right cast. That's right. And so anyway, so that was kind of his, oh, and immigrants, immigrants. He hated immigrants. That was another thing. Very, very similar to the way that the Democrats behave in America. So he was testing the viability of this kind of woke politics. And I think one thing we have to say, and this is a little surprising perhaps, you know, you might think that wokeness is an American phenomenon. We've had slavery in America, but there hasn't been slavery, for example, throughout Europe, or at least even if we go back historically. There were very few slaves in Europe. There are other countries that have been untouched by slavery, or at least the same type of South America did have slavery, of course. But. Interestingly, the same American politics, your transphobic, your homo. They use them. Exactly the same. It's the same. Exactly the same. And that's a reason why even Hugo Chavez was knocking down the Columbus statue. Exactly for the same reasons. And it puts people interestingly good people who don't know how to think about all this. I put on the defensive because they are, I think they're encountering these things for the first time. And they're a little bit thrown off because let's think about it. There are a lot of people who have reservations about homosexuality. They don't fear. They're not homophobic. But when they're stung by that accusation, they immediately up against the wall. A lot of people are biblical about it. And that's why they say no to those things. Not so much because they don't like gays or whatever. As people. No, no, I realize that. Well, now the thing about this though is that it looks like what happened with the chileans is they went for this Boric guy, but then, of course, as the left does, he went too far, he essentially rewrote the whole constitution, making it a leftist document. This is like a dream document for Bernie Sanders, which is why Bernie Sanders endorsed it. Right. But the chileans voted him down. Yeah, but you know, I don't, I really don't put this guy, I mean, I don't doubt that the Chilean people rejected it, but the way things go down there, it wouldn't surprise me if he did something if he pulled some shenanigans with elections. You know, if he was going to go Chavez road. Yes, and starts and starts to rig all the elections. Because again, this was kind of a surprise. And he may think to himself, hey, my agenda is not going to go through if I allow these people to actually vote for this agenda. And so that's what ends up happening is that the people don't actually vote for this agenda, they might fall for it initially, but then when they wake up and realize, hey, this is really bad for our country. This is going to create all kinds of issues with finances with poverty with crime, they wake up and then it's too late. I mean, the thing about you have to realize that communists and marxists don't really believe in elections. Marx didn't believe in elections. Their idea is to use elections as a mechanism to come to power, but once they do and we see this of course in Venezuela, they do not hesitate to rig elections or even just to shut them down altogether. Most socialist countries don't have elections. Or if they have elections. They put on a staged election. They pick all the candidates. They've got the whole outcome already prejudged and predetermined. So you're saying that because they lost, they might intensify their efforts. Probably thinking, what was I thinking? I actually did a real election. No. Never again. I think that's unfortunately what's going to happen in Chile. In other words, we might be seeing some mules in Santiago. Those meal burros. Wow.

"We were talking this morning about the kind of near miss in Chile. I think the reason I'm interested in Chile is because this is a prosperous country in South America. And it's prosperous because of markets, it's prosperous because of an explicit commitment to free market principles. And for this reason, the election of this Gabriel Boric, this leftist actually a communist in his youth, very bad guy. Very disturbing because I suppose what it could be is that because Chile is prosperous. They feel like they can take a chance. Well, and I have to say in chiles in the Chilean society, this whole notion of this wokeness has reared its ugly head down there. And so when he campaigned, he made the right wing candidate. I can't remember his name right now. Appear as a hateful, you know, a xenophobic. It didn't like indigenous people, didn't like, you know, people of color and Jose Antonio cast. Right cast. That's right. And so anyway, so that was kind of his, oh, and immigrants, immigrants. He hated immigrants. That was another thing. Very, very similar to the way that the Democrats behave in America. So he was testing the viability of this kind of woke politics.

"The left is all for the rule of law as long as it goes their way. They're all for the democratic processes of our society except when they produce a result or an outcome that they don't like. And recently, a federal judge, Eileen cannon, shot down or struck down the Biden DoJ by saying, we need to have a special master or an independent authority, review the Mar-a-Lago documents to see which of them appropriately belong to the search, and which of them do not, which is to say which of them need to be isolated or returned to Mar-a-Lago because they were seized inappropriately. And the Biden DoJ shrieking, oh, this is gonna jeopardize national security. This is going to cause the end of the world and the judge is like, it's not going to jeopardize national security. The documents are going to stay with the special master is going to be operating on behalf of the government. So the documents are staying with the government. They're not going to be distributed or publicized in any way. But here's the point. Eileen canon is a respected judge. She's of Cuban origin, a mom fled the dictatorship of Fidel Castro. She graduated from duke. She went to the University of Michigan law school, she worked at the Justice Department as a prosecutor. She also was with a leading law firm. She served as an appellate judicial clerk. Ron DeSantis recently pointed out that when she was confirmed as a federal judge, the vote in Florida was 56 to 21, 12 democratic state senators joined Republicans to confirm her to the bench. And yet, if you look at the commentary on her now coming from, well, some of it's coming from lawyers, law professors, media types, they're acting as though this woman is unqualified a complete buffoon and corrupt to boot. So suddenly the legal system, which the rule of law becomes questionable, why? Because it's producing a result that these people don't like. Here is Ellie style on MSNBC. This is one of NBC's stupid or that's really saying something regular guests. He says, quote, she's biased and she's corrupt. Corrupt. Here's Norman ornstein, my former colleague at AEI. Now orange street was always a Democrat and always recognized that AEI to be one of the stupider guys among the scholars there. But they kind of kept him on because he was had the reputation then of being more of a centrist Democrat. He's not anymore. He's one of the worst today. And he too, he implies the judge cannon is engaging in obstruction of justice. The judge, a federal judge, is obstructing justice. Why? Because according to him, the Biden DoJ should be able to proceed unimpeded, unsupervised without any kind of judicial oversight and any judicial obstacles put in their way. This is his definition of obstruction. Harvard Law professor Laurence tribe who can usually be counted to make the most extreme statement that you could possibly make. Basically compares the judge's decision to quote dred Scott or korematsu. Now dred Scott, most of you know, this was the notorious Supreme Court decision. I believe 1857 that essentially affirmed slavery that said that black people don't have any rights that whites need to respect. This is the infamous decision by judge tawney. Koramatsu is the case which essentially resulted in the internment of Japanese Americans into camps during World War II. So these are extreme cases. And yet here is a Harvard Law professor linking a judge who by and large, let's notice here, what is judge Eileen cannon doing she is putting a check on governmental power. If you look at dred Scott and you look at korematsu, those were promiscuous exercises of government power. On the one hand, government supporting the whole regime of slavery in the south, on the other hand, the government actively grabbing these Japanese American families sticking them into camps. Heroes judge cannon basically saying the government needs to have some oversight. We need a special master to look over what the government is doing to make sure that it's legit, that people's rights, the individual in this case, Trump's rights are not being violated. So the point here is that what we're seeing from the left is a complete. Abrogation of the basic respect due to a federal judge. And this is not to say that you can't disagree with the judge's decision that you can't say that listen, if you're on the left, you probably think, well, the Biden administration can be trusted to exercise a kind of responsible sway over these documents. They can certainly distinguish what's a classified document for what's not, a document that is covered by the search to some stuff. Let's say Trump's medical records or tax records have made just inadvertently have been picked up as part of that search, we can trust the government. This is sort of you could make that argument, but that's a whole different matter from saying the judges are crooked. The judges corrupt the judges is basically just like the judges of all that affirm the extension of slavery into the territories struck down the Missouri compromise. This of course is dred Scott, or the judges who dispatched Japanese Americans into internment camps. We see here rhetoric that has become pulled away from detached from any responsible relationship to common sense or balanced judgment. In other words, what I'm saying is that the left has gotten unhinged, something that's not entirely surprising, but we see once again in this case.

"There is an important ongoing lawsuit and investigation that is being conducted by the attorney generals of both Missouri and Louisiana. The Missouri attorney general, by the way, is Eric Schmidt, who has been on this podcast. The Louisiana attorney general is Jeff Landry, the two of them have come together in a very important enterprise. What's the enterprise? It is to fully expose the unconstitutional collusion between figures and the Biden administration, strewn through many different departments and agencies, including The White House, and a trifecta of social media companies. Was speaking here specifically about Twitter about Google slash YouTube and about Facebook slash meta. Now, really ever since Biden took office, the Biden administration has been pressuring cajoling conspiring with social media companies to ban people to ban what they call disinformation or misinformation, but it's merely information they don't agree with. Misinformation here has the sort of has a kind of ideological definition. It is what our side says goes, what your side says is automatically classified as out of bounds. So this is a naked exercise of political power. I mean, think of it. It's not only a violation of free speech. It's a violation of democracy itself, which relies upon a multi party system, a diversity of ideas, people having forums in which they can put their ideas forward. Now, for some time, groups like Facebook and YouTube with several private organizations, we can have our own guidelines, we can have our own rules. You don't like it, you form your own platform. First of all, when parler was formed as an independent platform, they all came together and including Amazon and Apple to take it down. But it's a whole different matter when the government is working hand in hand with these so called private companies in order to suppress speech. And this is really what Eric Schmidt and Jeff Landry are exposing. Now, they have gotten a whole bunch of discovery, and this discovery extremely eye opening. They have all kinds of communications from people in different agencies, emails, directives, apparently teleconferences back and forth, in which these agencies are working with these social media companies about banning people, deplatforming, restricting them. So in the sense that they're well on their way to proving their case. But alarmed by what they're finding out, the Biden administration has been suppressing the communications of people higher up. So for example, people like high up at The White House or people high up at the various agencies or even Doctor Fauci, or, for example, The White House press secretary Karin, Jean Pierre. These are people who have also been active with the social media companies, and yet the Biden administration is saying is we can reveal these communications. These are these reflect the internal workings of The White House. And so they have been blocking the release of these documents. So Eric Schmidt and Jeff Landry went to a judge in Louisiana who just issued a ruling very good ruling where he basically says a news referring specifically to Fauci and specifically to karine Jean Pierre, the press secretary, and he says, look, you got any communications that you have with social media companies are part of a legitimate lawsuit and a legitimate discovery process turn them over. He expresses appropriate derision and contempt for the position that no, these are internal documents. He goes, no, I'm not talking about documents that are internal to The White House. A documents that are internal to the NIH or to the CDC. I'm talking about external communications between the Biden administration on the one hand and these external social media companies. That is the information being sought. That is the information that needs to be turned over. Now, in his own press release, the. Eric Schmidt, whom I should get back on the podcast to talk about this. This is such an important story. He says that we've gotten information from meta. From Facebook, saying that at least 32 federal officials are constantly involved with us telling us who to censor and what to do. Moreover, YouTube disclosed that 11 federal officials are in regular communication with YouTube about who and what to ban. And so Schmidt says that this is a, he calls it a censorship enterprise, which I think is a good way to put it because he's talking about not one agency and not just censoring COVID. They're censoring a whole bunch of stuff and, according to Schmidt, these are some of the agencies involved. The White House? HHS, which is held in human services, DHS, Department of Homeland Security, cisa, the cybersecurity infrastructure agency. The CDC, the office of the Surgeon General, the Census Bureau, the FBE, the FDA, the Food and Drug Administration, the FBI, the State Department, the Treasury Department, so all of them, or most of them, they're all in on it. And so this it seems to me is something that really desperately needs to go up to the Supreme Court because of the First Amendment means anything it means that the agencies of the government can not fascist style direct private organizations to censor people. In other words, they can not do through private instruments through the trifecta of social media companies what it would be unconstitutional for them to do if they were to do it themselves.

"It's just going to go away. I don't think they care. Again, you print more money. It's exactly what they've done and Albany, Washington, D.C., the solution is tax the rich, demonize your opponent, raised taxes and hope that a future generation deals with the mess that you're making. That is literally their mindset. They don't care. And we do. Like, we genuinely care about making sure that our kids and grandkids have a better America than what we inherited. Like, we genuinely believe that. They don't give a damn. Folks on the left, especially these radical socialists, they care about power and politics more about people. I guess I look at it. When I say that John Moore speaking about the voter, right? The democratic voter, like you have to understand. And again, like you said, are you that selfish? You don't care about your family and your grandkids and I don't have children yet. I care about what happens to my grandkids. That's like a hundred years away, right? But the point of building a business and getting yourself out there, making money and it's to provide for your family, potentially grandkids, whatever, great grandkids. I guess I look at the liberal voter and I ask the question, do you not think about this stuff? Is your is your financial freedom and your children's financial freedom and your grandchildren? Is that not important to you? Because if you actually think the printing money is a real answer, you're out of your freaking mind, but they're losing their minds and they're doubling down on their playbook. It's a classic democratic playbook at what they do every single time. They are deathly afraid and they're going to lose the House and Senate. So it's the same playbook they've had for generations. They're wrong on issues. They can never argue the merits of issues. What do they do? They try and scare the hell out of people. It's what they do every single election cycle. They'll people with fear or the anger that if you vote Republican, I've heard in a million times, they're going to kill your grandma. They're going to cut social security. There is going to be, you know, riding and looting in the streets. This is congressman Jamal Brown, our next clip. He actually said an actual Civil War could break out if Republicans win in the midterms. It was also emboldened Republicans and the far right and white nationalists across the country to begin to believe that it is their time to not just take power in the house, but the Senate, The White House, and state houses across the country, and we got to understand that this is a group that has been radicalized by the great replacement myth and many other things and have been pushing for violence and pushing for evening Civil War. They're doubling down. They're doubling down. And you know more about this than I do, I think. This great replacement theory that they throw out, they're like, Tucker Carlson's the biggest great replacement there..

"And that's what I saw even as a former media member. The indignation and the righteous anger from her perspective, our White House press secretary to say how dare you ask me that question. Because she was more shocked and media finally asking about the president's health than his actual health. It was, I can't believe you asked me that. You're not allowed to do that because you're on our side. And they view media, the Biden administration, Democrats, they view the media is on their side. They're one of them. And they're flabbergasted that they're being questioned about their policies or the health of the president. I do feel like at times too though, like that's their kind of their shtick. Like, let's just joke about everything and laugh, right? 'cause she kind of did that there just like Kamala does when kama was pressed. She just kind of makes a joke and giggles, right? We've said it for years. Even Biden does it, right? Like you hear Biden with his little chuckles or he'll just start yelling or whispering or like they can't give an honest reaction or an honest. They can't act like an honest person, right? When they talk to the media or anybody, it's like they have to turn into this different weird, it's like nervous energy. I guess that's the best way to say it. Is that what it is? We'll look at AOC. I mean, she was asked on CNN basically the same question like, okay, if Joe Biden runs again, he'll be, you know, a 197 years old. Would you support him in 2024? You mentioned the chuckle. Here it is and listen for yourself. You know, if the president chooses to run again in 2024, I mean, first of all, I'm focused on winning this majority right now. And preserving a majority this year in 2022. So we'll cross that bridge when we get to it, but I think if the president has a vision and that's something certainly we're all willing to entertain and examine when the time comes. She laughed. She did and she also stammered around and I saw an article on my other day was perfect. In 67 words that she used in that whole segment there. It could have been one simple word to save us that whole spiel she just gave us. Yes, I would like the president to run. Yes, simple. Or no. But you know, in her case, there's only one answer for her. But that would be, it would be simple. Yes, or like you said, no. That's it. They have not been able to answer that question yet. And I think the problem, you know, a clip of AOC reminded me there was a member of Congress who had a conversation with very recently. And they said, when AOC won her race, that they were just sitting and it was a Republican just sitting in the House chamber, this individual turned to their left and they noticed that AOC was also.

"Left wing members of Congress would give them a free pass. And no matter what, they would still win elections, but it's not happening. I mean, they're even still going back to their old playbook and it's going to be clip number three where they're still blaming the former president. You know, when George Bush left office, for years, everything was George Bush's fault. Everything was George Bush's fault. And there's still no, I could not believe it when I heard this clip and I'm thinking, okay, we got to put it at the top of the show because the nerve of the Biden administration to basically say that this is all Donald Trump's fault. Let's listen in clip number three. We have to remember where this country was more than a year ago when he walked into office. The economy was not in a great place. A schools were closed businesses were closed. We didn't have a comprehensive COVID COVID strategy yeah, I remember where the economy was. Do you? I was going to say, wait a minute though. First off, you did. You did create the strategy for COVID. It was shut everything down. That wasn't Donald Trump's idea of things. His idea was to stop travel from certain locations. His idea was not to show the country. That was you guys. That was your comprehensive strategy. That's what's so funny, and I agree with you. The economy was obviously much, much better than it is right now. And by the way, people forget, coming out of COVID, you know, when I say coming out of COVID, like most of us did, you know, in 2020, but there's a lot to still in it, really. But coming out of that first few months, the economy came back fairly quickly. Believe it or not, like you would think with that, looking at that, I'd be like, oh my God, two years, the economy must have been terrible. It wasn't. It came back in the summer and the fall of 2020. And if you look at sales tax revenue across New York State, it was up significantly when stores started opening again, the economy was moving, which meant a lot more revenue for local governments, local municipalities, because that's usually shared at least an Arctic in the Woods with school districts, the whole 9 yards. But you want to say, okay, remember the economy we inherited. We'll look at it now. Right. Inflation at a 40 year high. Gas prices up 50% in one year. Groceries up 12% in one month. Americans are spending an extra $160 per month on gas. Restaurant price is up 7% milk, up 16%, chicken, up 17% eggs, up 32%. And Mike have I talked about this on the radio Saturday Stefan. Gas two years ago and I know it was a COVID year, say what you want. Fine. Was $2 and 20 something cents. Biden and June of 2020, it was at like $3 and 40 cents. We're now at $5, right? Like, people forget, we're not just comparing Donald Trump comparing to Joe Biden's first year in office. That's the other thing. Inflation up 3% over the last 12 months or 3% plus, right? Consumer debt from when Trump was president June of 2020 compared to now in June of 22, consumer debt up 14 times the amount that Donald Trump at it. It's unbelievable. That's a big deal. Facts are stubborn things. Everyone's an entitled to an opinion you're not entitled to your own set of facts. And I think you can ask any American are you better off now.

They got talent and they are not scared of the sun's obviously a big reason. Still no devonte Booker, right? No, Devin Booker. So, you know, Chris Paul stepped up in a big way him and ayton, they're producing double doubles, 8 and shooting 68%. I don't think bridges has the game that we saw him have last game in regards to the number of three pointers he put up. He also had four blocks. I just like, I like this New Orleans team back at home, trying to force a game 7, McCollum's averaging 20 points a game Ingram shooting over 50% Herbert Jones is stepping up in a big way. I even like one of the prophets I like here, Joe is Herbert Jones over two and a half steals and blocks combined. He's a total for the last two games. He's really been the difference maker when you look at the games that the pelicans have won as opposed to the pelicans have lost. So I'm going to play the pelicans, give me the points, please. I like their scrappiness. I'm going to be rooting for them and Herbert Jones over two and a half total blocks in steel's combined. Dangerous situation for me because I'm going the other way and I did that to you yesterday in the Golden State game and I got burned. I got burned. You said it. You said Golden State probably going to win, but you're taking the points and you ended up winning that bet. So I'm going to do it again and shame on me. It come Friday when you and I are co hosting that. I will make no picks if I lose this. You will make all the picks and I will just nod and agree and say, yeah, what she said. There's no reason for me to disagree with any of this. Sounds minus two. My other bet is going to be the sun's team total over one O 7 and a half. Let's start with the side. I'm a bit surprised that it's only minus two. Games three and four in New Orleans were minus two and minus two and a half. Phoenix one and covered the one. They lost the other outright to New Orleans, but with them winning game 5 and putting the pelicans on the brink. And given the history of these teams up three O how they end up closing out in a situation, Doug's going to have the stat later on daily wager, but it's been something for following. I thought this was going to be closer to three, three and a half. So at two, I'm going to get involved. The sun's and this leads into the team total analysis as well. The sons have shot 50% from the floor in every game this series. Doesn't matter if they have Devin Booker or not. They're finding ways to knock down shots. It's not a problem. They're averaging a 110 points per game for the series. They've scored at least a 108 in four of the 5 games. The one game where they didn't hit the mark was gained four against New Orleans, which by the way, featured the slowest pace of the entire series, as well as the suns, producing their worst offensive rating of the entire series. And they still got close to going over this total of one O 7 and a half. Take note that everything I'm talking about is happening despite the fact that over their last three games in this series, the sons are shooting just 26% from three. So they're scored a lot of points and they're putting up a 50% field goal rate despite not knocking down any of their for threes. So I think it's cheap at minus two. I will play the sons and I like the team total over one O 7 and a half. Game number three before we dive into some draft props, you tall and Dallas. This has been an interesting one. Dallas was a two point favorite to open, and that was on the road. It's now down to pick on totals two ten and a half mavericks looking to close out the series against the Utah team that just looks very off this season. What are you gonna do here? Yeah, I love the Mavs. We talked about it briefly on daily wager yesterday. Does Luca have a calf injury? Nobody would know, dude's averaging 30 points, ten rebounds a game. He's getting in on the assist as well. We need be I mean, I think he clocks another double double tonight. And I'd probably buried the lead here and I talked about it yesterday as well. That's Brunson. Man is on fire. He's having a great series. Everything he's been able to do in this postseason, let alone towards the end of the regular season, Dallas really needs to pay this man his money. I mean, he's really Luca obviously is the straw that stirs the drink, but Brunson has been terrific. They have proven that they could win in Salt Lake. There are three point shooting, they're averaging 15 more points a game than Utah just from behind the arc alone and their perimeter defense is sick. So I love the mags, whether Donovan Mitchell, I know speculation he's going to play, but he's not a 100%, even if he was a 100%. I still like the maps. My prop had here is Reggie Bullock over two and a half, three pointers. He's averaging 44% from downtown. He's got over two and a half three pointers in each of the games that he's played in some games. He's posted four, and he's getting a ton of minutes. Joey's averaging 40 minutes, a game in this series. I love Bullock over two and a half three pointers. Okay, very interesting. I am with you. I'm going to play Dallas here at pick them. There's not a whole lot that I can add that you haven't already covered. I mean, you look at this series. You tall is just flawed. They're absolutely flawed. Something's going on. I think it's the fact that Donovan Mitchell wants out the team knows it. They haven't played well. They came into this series and they found out a Lucas hurt and B Devin Booker got hurt quickly thereafter. You should have been stoked that the playoff field was setting up like that. And instead, you go out there and get your rear ends kicked without Luca. And now he's back. I don't know why I would believe in Dallas at this point. You know, put it like this. And this is the best way I can, I said this yesterday, I'm going to say it again, and you'll hear it again later today on daily wager. Dallas produced their worst three point shooting night of the entire series in game 5, right? The last time we saw him, it was their worst three point shooting effort of the entire series. They were 27%. And they still won the game by 25 points. They still won by 25 points. I don't know what you talking to. Mitchell looks like he's going to play, but he's got hammy issues. He's got quad issues. I think the jazz are packing it in. I don't think the fans are stoked about this team at all. Dallas gets it done. That's where we stand for the NBA tonight. Let's quickly move through some NFL Draft props. We're on record with a lot of props we like, but a lot of the numbers have moved. So based on what's still out there. Do you have one or two you could recommend for the people? No, I have quite a few. First and foremost. Stop traffic. First and foremost, you know, I think we're all anticipating walker to go number one overall to the Jags. Hutchinson number two to Detroit in the latest. We had Matt Miller on the show yesterday and my source is telling me as well that sting Lee cornerback very well could go to the Texans at three. And by the way, you could wager on that exact order at plus one 75, okay? There's some other bets out there. You know I'm really big on Garrett Wilson being the first wide receiver taken. It's minus one 30, not too much juice. Stingley, the first corner taken, that's an even money carlotta..

She brings a woman on by the name of Kimberly Crenshaw. You're going to learn about Kimberly Crenshaw in American Marxism. She did not come up with the idea of critical race theory. She came up with the idea of Intersectionality, which takes it a step further. As an example. If you're black. And you're a lesbian. And you're Muslim. There you have three areas of victimhood. Three areas in which you are oppressed by the white dominant straight Christian male society. So there's intersectionality with your race with your With your sexuality. And with your faith.

Racism, Opioids and COVID-19: A Deadly Trifecta

"Two thousand seventeen the governor of illinois implemented a plan to halt the explosive growth of opioid deaths in the state. The plan was to cut those deaths by at least a third by the end of twenty. Twenty twenty twenty was gonna be the turning point for illinois dua l. deeb is a reporter with propublica they're starting to see a decrease and opioid overdose deaths and they were really kind of making progress across the state and they were really hopeful but early last year duo got a tip that the number of opioid related deaths might actually be on the rise in the region so she and her colleague melissa. Sanchez started investigating the analyzed death records from the cook. County medical examiner's office. And what they found was alarming. We found that opioid overdoses surged and cook county and specifically in chicago and that those overdoses were disproportionately killing black residents. I think by the summer we had seen about hundred residents who had died of suspected or confirmed opium overdoses which is about double the number from the year before drug overdose deaths are on the rise all around the country. This was a nationwide problem that we're seeing kind of start to rise before the pandemic and then just continue as a pandemic ravaged our communities absolutely. This is the obvious question for me. Here is whether we have a sense of how much of this increase can be tied to the coronavirus pandemic so cova didn't cause the spike but like everything else that made it worse the financial stress the isolation The desperation all of that seems to be really exacerbating things and then when we talk about isolation with opioid. Use one of the things that they say. Is you know if you're gonna use use with someone else so that then they can administer naloxone the opioid overdose reversal drug.

Streaming Services Killed the Last Video Store Chain

"Before streaming services. Let you cue up whatever you wanted to watch on your smart tv. There were video stores. Remember those if you wanted to watch a movie you drop by and pick up the latest action flick for yourself and maybe a classic disney movie or a video game for the kids. The number of video stores has been steadily decreasing since netflix's launched in nineteen ninety-seven. But now it's time to mark the end of an era after forty years in the business family video. The last of the national video store chains is closing its doors family video outlasted most of its competitors and had roughly five hundred stores at the beginning of two thousand twenty but the last video rental chain standing ended the year with roughly half that number according to retail dive. Dad insult to injury before family video. Shut its doors briefly in march. It enjoyed its best weekend. In recent memory as people grabbed a few videos to enjoy during the pandemic initial shutdown but ultimately a trifecta of both was more than the chain could withstand the wall street journal reports. I there was the business. Impact of covid nineteen shutdowns. Then more people opted for streaming services netflix hulu and company increase their combined subscriber base by fifty percent by the end of last year. Three out of four us households now subscribe to at least one streaming service and finally. There's the ongoing delay of new releases on the big screen which meant that. There was nothing new coming out on video. While a smattering of independent stores remained around the country. Video store chains mostly went the way of the dinosaur a decade ago. That's when the big players in the space including certain blockbuster closed most of their stores. Today blockbuster has one remaining store in bend oregon. In addition to video reynolds that location survives as a tourist attraction which sells its own maiden oregon merchandise according to a report in vice. While you're there you can pick up a laminated replica of a blockbuster membership card and a distress t shirt. That says i survived along with the last blockbuster. The stores reopened with safety and social distancing guidelines in place. So how did family video lasted decade longer than it's much bigger. Competitors and a dying industry two words real estate the chain owned most of its locations so it could shrink store footage and sublet the remaining space to stay profitable according to retail dive chain like blockbuster and hollywood video and other competitor were mostly leased which offered them little flexibility in controlling costs and because family video is well family owned the hoogland family could call the shots instead of answering to shareholders. Many of us love our streaming services and the ability to get the shows and movies. We want when we want them still. There's always a touch of nostalgia when something goes away. Future generations will never know that thrill of finding the last copy of a hot new release on the shelves or the stress of racking up. A stomach churning amount of late charges because you forgot to return the movie on time

Be shore short order in all need to confirm times before i actually said yet but i just wanted to get out of delight and and do something new and try out the new technology so i definitely You know. I think that was the he thing that you know i i was able to bet. I was able to gather a lord of on explorer lord of these areas where because acknowledges new because the it's open so's laura of new which means you have to look at the world to land because they're available. There are no not not a lot of documentation available to the depend on a lot of people who are blogging out there. I discovered blogging in two thousand. Six mundanity at all it is to had fallen. And i should do do the same. I sort also should probably be back. When when i get whatever learnings i have. I should start getting with the deep lowest payroll the internet so that again died. He has always been that. If i've been able to learn from random on they donate you know in the. I'm sure there are a few learning i have. I've had an i can. Shed some people are there could could benefit so i also started doing that because there has been a to decide. You know i. I used to write off line in my diocese in some some bit way. Trees and bin had been barred off the editorial committee in the quality magazine and all sorts of literally places. Wherever i had a chance to axel i think blogosphere also give that side also in some opportunity and wings that i could explore that so i will always kind of doing these things. So the transition wasn't really it was like you know you. You found something that you it so outside more than inside out kind of condition. That i was not doing officially were what i was doing in a gun strained way you know what i was looking to do. So i was of guatemalan gathering for example. It was something that i was doing from the beginning for being in those clear devonport sent and then discussing declined something doing by the ford what i was dipping was i just go back with in bliss to be just saying you know i i just started.

Management quite bushy from developers business analysts definitely not much of a transition as a as. I just enjoyed doing all of this a lot. I used to write blogs and posts and no love stories and poems at that time and i guarded liz. I think all make creative reveal what employed on the job. Right so i. I didn't have a chance to explore the other possibility Dot was one measure. That i could see your could sends that i am not actually getting in exploring writing all the other stuff because probably will ultimately do these getting off you know united. I'm getting to be creative at. Were able to write nothing that i love to do. And i'm just focusing. There wasn't a difference between work and that was lovely thing to have. Yeah that's nowadays people talk about finding your guy so it looks like you found it. Yep we your passion than you're proficient. When you mentioned that you always go back with more features are two more function could be implemented and all that. How did you develop a. What can others learn from your experience. Dumbs of developing empathy for the users which probably helps a lot in terms of identifying solutions. Or coming up with additions to something that i've probably Hard time articulating.

That now i l my team to develop empathy is actually talk to a lot of statement korda's with with an open mind with an open ear not there defend what. You have not dare to interrogate a those guys. They were using it correctly. A more bar just hitting seeing what he going to people.

Pro-Trump mob storms the US Capitol, touting 'Stop the Steal'

"Insurrection resulting in scenes unlike any in living memory after days of prodding by president donald trump rioters descended on the capitol building in washington. Yesterday congress had gathered for a joint session to certify. President elect joe biden's victory under the provisions of s con res-. One cinema will now proceed as a body. Several republican lawmakers such as ted cruz began lodging. They're expected objections. The tallies recent polling shows that thirty nine percent of americans believe the election. That just occurred quote was rigged the midway through proceedings representatives were forced to flee from the chamber ushered into bunkers through underground passageways. Seeding the floor to a violent group of trump's supporters for hours tense standoff ensued as rioters posed for pictures in house speaker. Nancy pelosi's office and made off with capital podiums. And for those hours. Mr trump stayed silent. i call on president trump. Go on national television now to fulfill his oath and defend the constitution and demand and then to this siege. The eventually issued a video statement telling the rioters to leave but a condemnation. It was not. We have to have peace so go home. we love you. You're very special. You've seen what happens. You see the way others are treated. That are so bad and so evil. I know how you feel but go home and go home. It peace after the building had been cleared. Lawmakers returned and carried on with the vote confirming mr biden early this morning with little further drama and mr trump at last committed to a peaceful transfer of power via staffers. Tweet even as he continued to insist. The election was unfair. Like so much that has happened in the trump presidency. It's all shocking. But not entirely surprising leaving those on capitol hill to survey the damage to a story building and to american democracy. Now the site of an angry mob. Rampaging through america's legislature wandering around the senate floor breaking into legislator's offices. That's not the sort of thing that's happened before john. Fashion is the economist. us digital editor. Most americans think of that sort of thing if they think of it at all as the kind of thing that happens in other countries and i think that the the political and psychological fallout from that will last a very long time it really was watershed moment for american politics. Not in a good way and walk through exactly what happened here. So what happened was the donald trump spoke at a rally at around noon on the sixth and he told his supporters that he would never concede and he told them to walk to the capitol and show strength and be strong now. What they showed of course was a deeply trumpian. Facsimile of strengthens the temper tantrum. And while the joint session of congress to certify joe biden's victory was underway. They overwhelmed capital police and got into the building. The session was adjourned shortly after two pm. I think the secret service whisked away. Mike pence who is presiding because the vice president is also president of the senate capital office. Buildings were evacuated members shelter in place for rioters to all appearances ran rampant through the capital. And eventually the riott sort of petered out. They didn't really seem to have a plan or goal beyond that show of petulance that they convinced themselves with strength and shortly after eight pm the to has of congress gaveled back in and After some lengthy speeches they did their constitutional duty and certify. Joe biden's win and there will be big questions about how. The rioters managed the breach in the first place. I mean how do they organize beforehand. And were they arrested afterward while the rioters have been far right trump supporters and they organize themselves at least partly using social media for days leading up to yesterday. They discussed on social media how to sneak guns in. Dc which has strict gun control laws outta dodge and spread thin. The police presence one of them fantasize about setting up the gallows outside congress and hanging elected officials. That seems to be how they organize themselves. Were there any arrests. The capitol police let a lot of people leave with just a warning Now more arrests may follow the rioters. A lot of them for reasons that baffoni took pictures of themselves and can easily be identified but even so even if more residue follow to my mind the difference between the very thin police presence and the way they treated armed insurrectionists who broke into the capitol building and terrorized. Legislators and the way police treated and prepared for black lives matter protesters this summer in full riot gear and nasa physical presence. That difference is really striking and what about republicans in congress. What do you think the repercussions will be for them. The ones who supported mr trump's efforts to to to question to overturn the vote. The question of repercussions is really interesting. You know one reason. Republicans lined up behind the president. Trump's claims of manipulation election thefts which i strongly suspect they knew were false is because they believe the price for not doing so was greater than the price for doing so they worried that trump would support a primary challenge to them and twenty twenty two or twenty twenty four. That was their concern now. Kelly leffler is one of the two senators just lost in georgia. Initially said she would object but after the riots. Change your position. I don't think she would've done that if he genuinely believed the election was stolen. I suspect the same is true of a lot of the others who back president trump's challenges. I suspect they didn't really think that the election was stolen. They thought it was a smart political. Move not to get crosswise with president trump. now anyone who cares about the health of american democracy democrat republican libertarian. Anyone who likes living democracy. Hope that the senators and congressmen who tried to overturn election will pay a heavy price. But whether they actually will. I don't know that i'd bet on it. Most of them from safe seats. What about the republican party. More generally will they abandon trumpism. This does all of this demonstrate. The very real costs of trumpism. The more interesting question is how the republican party reaction. Toto because as popular is trump is with base voters. He's deeply unpopular with the broader electorate. Remember the he entered office with republicans in control of the white house and both chambers of congress and he will leave with democrats in the same position. The last time that happened the last time they had that trifecta party switch was eighteen. Ninety two and the results this year showed the republicans really can win with women and with non white voters with the right candidates. And so it's in. The party's interest to broaden its view and leave. trump isn't behind. And you know even people. Who seem like staunch allies like josh hawley and ted cruz. They want trump gone to right. They don't want him to be the twenty two thousand four nominee. They want to be the twenty twenty four nominee. But there's a first mover problem. Nobody wants to stick his neck out and get chopped off but if nobody moves. All trump retains as power which nobody also really wants and i would guess that they're hoping some combination of legal and financial trouble post-presidency sort of does him in politically so they won't have to and you know they may be right. They may get lucky.

Christmas trees business thriving during pandemic, helps struggling families

"Cropped the kidney. It's stuff that tree up. Yeah. The Grinch stole the whose Christmas tree, but one are about a business is doing its level. Best to make sure families who don't have a tree this year can get one and get one for free. They've done this for the last two years and 20 twenties. The trifecta. We're joined now by Julie Actor with Actors Garden Center in Nevada in Julie. Thank you for joining me this morning. Good morning. Thank you for having me. Tell me about what inspired this idea for you all. But that's all started back in 2018. And we're going into the week of Christmas. And we had all these extra trees that we knew we weren't gonna sell. On guy just couldn't bear the idea of all these trees going the way so we came up with this event to donate the trees, the families and need. It was ended up being this huge success and we just heard so many amazing stories, and we had So much amazing support that we decided that we wanted to do it again in 2018. So last year we brought in about 55 extra trees and Our customers, all donated ornaments, treat them decorations, and we distributed that the trees. This is now our third year and I think Over the past few years was given up about 135 trees, families. I'm wondering, and you may know better, obviously, because we're upon it as this year. Have you seen more people in need of trees because obviously the economics of the pandemic. Yeah, definitely it So this year was, um, a little bit tougher for us. We brought in extra trees that we actually pulled out early. So I've been scrambling for the best week trying to find extra trees that we could do this giveaway. And we're able to thinking about 30 from my local tree. What And then our friend that Jensen Flower and garden actually donated the rest a barrel unfold trees, so kind of Ah group effort, and I know there's a lot of people out there this year that That didn't have it in the budget says to get against Christmas trees. We're really excited that we're able to pull this off and really excited for you. But today, I was going to say, I mean, it must be bittersweet. The fact that there's such demand that that makes you feel good that you're helping people but also that there's such demand that a lot of people are are really struggling. I wanted to ask. It's been a rough time financially for so many. I don't have to tell you that you're experiencing that and seeing that with with customers who need trees. How has the business How is your business survived? Drink over 19. Yes, There's kind of a roller coaster for us. We do about 80% of our years sales and three months and the pandemic hit right before those three months started. So it was pretty scary for us in the beginning, and there's like the very real possibility If we shut down the Let's get that out of business by the end of the year, And so that was pretty scary that we ended up being very fortunate. And with everyone staying home and working in their yards, our industry kind of boom sharing this all of this We've been very, very fortunate this year that we've done so well and we're just excited that we could give back and help people that weren't so fortunate that and I imagine I'm sure your employees are thankful that they're able to continue to work as well because of the difficulties. I'm just curious was your business, one of those to take advantage of the P P p when it was available. We did, um, we actually shut down. We went to it. An online store for about a month and a half we were forced to close were considered an essential business. That we lost a lot of employees. It just didn't feel comfortable being there. So which transitions you an online store for about a month and a half, which was an experience in itself on and then reopened in May that thinks that it's kind of in a roller coaster for us. It's been a crazy year and we're just very fortunate that That we came out. Okay with it all, Julie, With the moment we have left If you were talking about that you've gone through your trees, but

Donald Trump is finished, but will 'Trumpism' prevail?

"It's been more than a week since the us presidential election joe biden of course has claimed victory whereas the president is yet to concede defeat but when donald trump eventually leaves office the question. We have to ask ourselves is is trumpism. Really finished after all the media conventional wisdom the new york times washington. Post the major networks. Cnn msnbc all that conventional wisdom is that the twenty twenty election represents a repudiation of trumpism and what's trump luckily to do after he leaves office well for more. Let's turn to patrick. J buchanan senior adviser to president reagan nixon and ronald reagan. Pat has been a regular fixture in america's opinion pages and cable television shows for generations. Ninety ninety two and ninety six pat buchanan ran for the presidential nomination of his party. The republican party on america first platform pass walking back to you between the lines. Good to your tom now. Let's start with the election itself to spotted trifecta of crises health economic racial the us congressional and presidential contests were very tight. How do you account for that. I think there were tight for this reason. The covid virus which hammered us in march and april and then all during the summer and full took the lodge. That's two hundred and thirty thousand americans and they induced an economic decline unrivalled since the great depression. And then you have to racial turmoil in the country. And the wake of the killing of george floyd in minneapolis riots. And and things like that. So he's really damaged trump in the eyes of the public and his administration and normally they would've killed any presidential candidate. But i will say that in the fall. When trump was further behind he basically one mechanic team won the battle against biden. It was surging at the end of the campaign but he did not get over the top or at least so far so i think what you can say is trump and trumpism won the campaign. They lost the election because of the burdens. They had to terry which were too happy to cross the finish line. And let's not forget that in the late up to the election the metric conventional wisdom the polls the pundits. They predicted a democratic sweep. A blue wave washing the republicans out of power capturing the senate and delivering an alleged democratic congressional majority if the democrats did indeed have a clean sweep of the congress and the white house what would radical progressive in the american takes. What would that have made if you had nancy. Pelosi in control of the house and chuck schumer and control. The should i which looks less and less likely now and preston biden into white house. Biden's problem would be the tremendous pressure from the progressive left wing of this party to impose his leftist agenda. The party home to the country in the first two years of his administration. And i think it would be virtually impossible biden to resist the democrats cheap to kill the filibuster. Which would eliminate the ability of the republicans to stop their agenda and we would be off to the races with medicare for all the green new deal statehood for puerto rico statehood for dc. Defunding the cops. Pack the supreme court the whole left wing democratic agenda. They would try to ram through with fifty one votes. In the senate and biden frankly would be restraining force because republicans wouldn't be able to do it if they lost the filibuster in the senate which is what. Barack obama urged the democrats to take away if they win the senate okay now bought and has pasta to sydney electoral college. Votes needed to win the white house now given that it's very hard to prove widespread electoral fraud pat. Why want trump just accept defeat. Here's trump is demanding that he be allowed to play out last play of the deal. Because i think he feels he has been treated horribly by the democrats and the liberals in the press and he's not gonna do them a favour. He's got a right to make sure. The counselor made and certain things happen by certain dates. He's not going to speed up the transition. It's not gonna be a pleasant transition at all. He's going to treat them the way they felt. They treated him when he came in with the russia investigation and all the rest of it. So i think what you're getting is. Trump is looking at upon this if it succeeds is a hostile takeover of the government of the united states. And he is acting to resisted with every legal constitutional weapon. He has so it's This is not a cordial country power at all. Okay but with dany. Before the nineteen sixty presidential election between richard nixon and john f kennedy. That was very taught. There was a lot of speculation about electoral fraud in texas and illinois. And that of course benefited. The democrats won that election now. Apologies for the very scratchy. Sound quality of these vintage news report from sixty years ago. but he's nixon. Your boss pat here. He is at four. Am at republican headquarters. After the election conceding. Defeat to and and results shows come in if the present trend continues If mr kennedy and senator kennedy will be the next president of the united states senators kennedy now. And i want you know that. Certainly this trend has continued and he does become our next president that he will have my. That's richard nixon conceding. Defeat john f. kennedy in nineteen sixty pat buchanan. Why can't trump do a nixon accept defeat graciously that at four am gathering. My wife was present. She worked for richard nixon and the nineteen sixty campaign and travel. The country would and the point is that was a different time in a different country. That america's today america's bitterly divided and one of the contributing factors is the is the belief correct in my view that donald trump was denied. Not only a good transition but donald trump was investigated by the fbi and during the transition. They went after his state of the fbi did and they had a two year investigation beach. Kim they try to defeat him then they tried to overthrow him. And i think trump feels this and he says i established nothing. They can go. I mean they can go too far as i'm concerned and we're going to run this old way out and make sure every ballot is counted and all the towns are accurate. And whether or not we're going to go to court and exercise our rights and we're not going to pretend otherwise that this is a pleasant for easy transfer of power this was a hostile takeover and trump's view. I mean they're campaign run against him former first lady. Michelle obama is already talking about the house and he could and racism and the rest endemic pain in what he come folks voted for. So i think look you gotta divided country and there's no sense pretending otherwise and trump is not gonna gauge any pretense.

I think jeopardy is Alex Trebek and Alex Trebek is jeopardy and it's going to be very interesting to see what the next chapter of that show was like. Um Because you know the old saying and and Shobha everybody's replaceable but showing the line but my goodness that's going to be those are big shoes to fill. I would not write down. I would not want to be The producers of that show. It's crazy. Um, speaking of the show, Lex, I know you saw this on 2020. Here's the story of him getting the job on jeopardy. This is you know. Ah Ah, This is interesting. What brought Alex Trebek to America that phone call? Alex got a call from Alan Thicke, another Canadian from Northern Ontario, well known from growing pains. Of course, he was developing a game show for NBC called Wizard of Odds. Wizard of Odds. And when it came time for him to think of a host, he merely thought of Alex Trebek. I had accumulated 16 weeks of leave at the CBC and I took a leave of absence. Ah, holiday with pay and went in audition for a show Alex audition for the job and got it. And in 1973, he moved to California to host Wizard of Odds Now here's Wiley. I first met Alex in 1973. You just knew right away. He was smart. This is a former executive producer of Jeopardy in control. He has an amazing capacity. Take it all in. I started with Wizard of Odds I did that three year they can't riding high replaced it on a Monday with so called high rollers with Alec. It was cancelled and replaced by a show called Battle stars. They kept lately for Layla, but they can't keep the host. That's funny. Yeah. And then eventually they decided to bring back jeopardy and, ah And and Alex got the job on DH then, like I said, became just a sliver of pop culture and you know that you've made in pop culture when you're spoofed on SNL. And you know, they reference that last night on the special mean he was everywhere. Here's a here's a little bit of Alex's influence on pop culture enjoyed stepping out from behind the podium. There were women here in Jeopardy. You're feeling very sleepy. Oh, I'm sorry, Peter. We were looking for King Louis. The 11th. This automotive tool is used to tighten bolts. And let's just go from soup to nuts. He has been in one of the greatest shows of all time. The Simpsons and he has made an appearance in one of the worst shows of all time. Baywatch. Did you see Who you just rescue Hey, Alex, Meet Alex. Alex Trebek from jeopardy! I don't believe this. And of course, there are the unforgettable Saturday Night Live parodies of Celebrity Jeopardy in which will Ferrell channels a deadpan Trebek Aziz mercilessly taunted by Darrell Hammond As Sean Connery. We meet again, you longer headed, tickle brained pump you Enough people often ask me. How did you feel about Sean Connery on? Have you ever met him in person? I said no, I haven't. But if I ever meet him, I'm going to get one of these. It's time for final jeopardy. And so this Wass never be afraid of poking fun at yourself self deprecating humor. Is worth its weight in gold.

Why Pennsylvania is Key Among Battleground States This Election

Why Pennsylvania is Key Among Battleground States This Election

"President trump narrowly won Pennsylvania in two, thousand sixteen and the state is shaping up to be an even harder fought battleground this time. Around we turn now to our national political reporter John McCormack Hi John. Hi, thanks for having me. So John Pennsylvania is uniquely positioned even among the battleground states in terms of the impact of the coronavirus pandemic and the subsequent economic fallout. What can you tell us? Well, we did a data analysis looking at the unemployment compared to a year earlier and also the. Deaths per capita for every county in America what we found when we did that analysis was that a Pennsylvania among the battleground states has the largest proportion of counties that fall into both of those unfortunate pockets has a lot of counties that have unemployment rates that are in double digits much higher than a year ago because of the pandemic and it also. Has a good number of counties that have deaths per capita rates that are in the top twenty percent of all counties. So we we looked at both of these benchmarks to try to get a sense for you know which battleground state is sort of suffering the most pain right now related to the pandemic in Pennsylvania really stands out in in those rankings. Let's dig into some specific county as you call Bucks County in suburban Philadelphia a battleground within a battleground. Tell us more about that what's happening there? Yes. So the unemployment rate in in Bucks County, which is just outside of Philadelphia. It's nine point seven percent, and that's more than double what it was a year ago and we used your ago figures because there's a season -ality. Unemployment rates, and so we looked at what was the unemployment rate a year ago for the same month and then compared to that that month this year and bucks is a county that Democrats and Republicans have fought over very closely. In recent elections. Hillary Clinton wanted by eight tenths of one percentage point I was simply like three or four thousand votes in A. County that is home to about six, hundred, twenty, eight, thousand people, and so it is a place that gets a lot of attention. Every presidential election cycle it has an area called lower box, which is in the southern end of the county and is a little grittier more industrial and certainly more densely populated, and there's a lot of white working class voters in that area. You know really rallied around Donald. Trump. In two, thousand, sixteen in his campaign of course hopes that they'll rally around him again in this presidential election. So it's a big county. It's a complex county, has a real widespread in terms of soda sort of socio economics, and we'll be intensely fought over by the way former vice president Joe Biden will be going there on Saturday. We all know he hasn't been doing a lot of on the ground campaigning this summer and fall, but he's starting to do more of it and one of his stops this weekend will be in bucks. County. So that indicates it's important. You anticipated my next question. How are the dynamics you just described influencing how president trump and Joe Biden are approaching Pennsylvania especially in the final days of this election and how does that compare to what saw in the candidate approach to Pennsylvania in two? Thousand Sixteen Yeah Well Twenty Sixteen. There was a lot of emphasis on Pennsylvania as well. Hillary Clinton held her national political convention in the summer in Philadelphia. So that was an indication of how important the state was back then as well. Of course, president trump won the state very narrow sort of as part of his you know northern Great Lakes, trifecta Pennsylvania Michigan Wisconsin that really sealed the presidency for 'em and So it's important. Again, this time Joe Biden's headquarters is in his campaign headquarters is in Philadelphia, and when you look at the the television reservations that are in place for both campaigns between now and the election Pennsylvania on a dollars per electoral vote basis in other words if you look at all the advertising spending that's going to be going on in Pennsylvania and the next week and a half if you then divide by how many electoral votes each state has and sort of do the math on that Pennsylvania ranks right at the top specially for Joe Biden in terms of places where he's going to put a lot of dollars on television screens in the coming days. So John Given, everything we've just talked about just how key is Pennsylvania going to be in this election let's arguably the most important battleground state. Now obviously, Florida's is also very important twenty seven electoral votes, but Pennsylvania has twenty and it's sort of viewed as critical for both of these candidates from Vice President Joe Biden is from Pennsylvania. You know if if he can't win the state that was born in that, that does have a lot of sort of working class that he's trying to appeal to that could be pretty telling in terms of what happens on election night. So it'll be very much watched. Some of the outside groups that are trying to influence the presidential race they sorta described Pennsylvania as. Camel's back. They feel like if if trump can't win Pennsylvania then there's really probably know path for him. It's always dangerous to say those sorts of things because you know like anything there can be surprises in in different combinations of these states can add up to the two hundred and seventy that you need to win. But certainly, a lot of eyes will be on Pennsylvania and a lot of resources and time will be going into the state in the next week and a half before the Election Wall Street. Journal. National, political reporter John, McCormick John Thank you so much for being here today.

Refocusing climate change as a human problem

"Been talking about how to adapt to climate change and how technology and the tech industry can help. But here's the part even on tech show where we acknowledged that climate change isn't just about tech solutions or Whiz Bang inventions, and in fact, like the pandemic climate change is a problem that reflects an exposes lots of things about our society Ion Elizabeth Johnson, and Katherine Wilkinson Co edited a book called Can Save Truth Courage and solutions. For the climate crisis, it features poems, essays, and other works of art by women working on climate issues I spoke with them. Both will Told me there's a lot in that subtitle we need to have eyes wide open to what is happening listened to the science we need courage, and then of course we need solutions and not just the solutions that kind the climate rose are really into like evt's and solar panels we definitely need those on just got Tesla. I think that's the TRIFECTA right though truth courage and solutions when people are like well, if not hope then what that's our answer. A when did we find ourselves at a point where we sort of stop talking about climate? As the thing we live from the air, we breathe the rain that falls or doesn't fall. Do you think it's important to like even before we start talking about solutions to recenter the conversation as a human problem? Yeah. Even though we didn't cause this problem, it's in fact one hundred corporations who are responsible for seventy one percent of emissions. There is a wide range of possible futures. And we so deliberately curated this book to show the wide range of ways that people can contribute building the best possible future. So it includes farmers and architects and artists, and journalists, and of course, scientists and policy experts and lawyers, and all of those skills are are needed and very much wanted. How much of this storytelling is also about making the simple economic argument that saving people also saves money. When we talk about the cost benefit analysis of doing various things to address the climate crisis, we usually only focus on the costs as opposed to making sure that we are also thinking about the benefits. And I think that is quite bolstering to me as a marine ecologist by training and thinking about nature based solutions and how protecting and restoring nature actually makes financial sense. 'cause it's cheaper to have mangroves and marshes and sea grasses than seawalls, right for example. So so I, think this book really shows not just some sort of techno Utopian version of the future where we like. Innovate, our way out of everything and instead it talks about the huge array of work that needs doing and the costs of of not doing it and what the world could look like for the better. If we do I feel like this conversation about racial justice, climate, justice, social justice, the importance of involving women in these conversations, how many women are leading solutions all over the world. is still kind of new and still kind of Nathan which is so lame but you're right. Which is pretty lame. But maybe take some explaining you know like what? What is what is this relationship between Racial Justin climate change and why don't people understand that I think we don't understand it because. Don't want to because it's it complicates something that has already really hard right like that's the. That's the push back that I hear most often it's not like I'm a racist and I WANNA, save the planet. It's more like solving climate change is hard enough without bringing in all these other layers. Can we just please focus on climate change now I and we'll deal with Lake police not murdering block people for no reason later. And the answer is no. No, we can't. We have to walk and Chew Gum on this one and there are many reasons for that. One is just it's the right thing to do, and so I hate having to give other reasons. But one of those other reasons is we know from polling by Yell and George Mason University's the people of Color actually are more concerned about the climate crisis. They're more motivated to be a part of the solution and to hold the politicians to higher standards on Climate Policy But how you know how can we expect black people to be focused on climate solutions when? Making, sure they have the basic right to live and breathe. and so this I can't breathe has become a rallying cry across You know across the racial and climate justice groups that it's not just in relation to police brutality but in the ways that communities of color are burdened with more polluted air and where or low where power plants decide to locate themselves, and then you know people who are breathing that dirty air being more at risk for extreme forms of of Covid, and so of course, these things are all connected and wouldn't it be great if we were building the winning team by including the people who were already on board and beyond to help and if we could unburden them from. Our White Supremacist Patriarchy, which is certainly not serving us in terms of really anything. But definitely, it's it's preventing a lot of people from being part of climate solutions because you know they have to dedicate their time and energy and ingenuity towards solving other problems about quality of life and justice and I. I just WanNa add because I think on articulates the. So incredibly well that when we think about climate change as quote unquote the problem I think that's where we start to miss. These intersections and entanglements when we understand actually that climate change is a manifestation of the problem, right? It's emerging of a system that we're getting so much feedback that it's not working. Racial violence is part of that feedback massive wealth inequality as part of that feedback the epidemics of loneliness and meaninglessness are part of that feedback, and also an atmosphere that is kate marvel says is larded with carbon dioxide and is having all of these climatic impacts that's also part of the feedback. But if we're just thinking about climate change as the problem we need to solve. Then our analysis isn't defense about what's actually going on here and thus what it's actually going to take to solve it. Kathryn Wilkinson and Iona Elizabeth Johnson Co edited the Book All.

Americans are saving more right now

"From. scare federal agency. The Bureau of Economic Analysis. On Americans saving money. During Corona virus is part of this. K- recovery were in. There are people that. Can't even put food on the table right now and can't pay basic bills and then others who have stayed employed their job spent been secure. Who are not spending money like they normally would. And or saving money in ways they never thought they could never have in the past. So the latest data does not cover August, it covers July it's you know a trailing indicator, but the average American right now is saving eighteen cents of every dollar they make. You take those that if you call the heard to people that are not worried about their paychecks staying employed, they're saving substantially more than that is a percent of their pay. Because you got to cut out the people who can't save anything right now. So the savings rate is extraordinarily we hit a peak in April when so many jurisdictions around the country were in lockdown where Americans on average saved thirty, three cents of every dollar they made putting us for the first time ever. In. A savings category with people across Asia who in Asia historically. People for every equivalent of a dollar, they make save a third of it. and. But for us very unusual, we've had times this century we're Americans have been negative net savers. Spending more than they actually make on average for the average American right now, saving a substantial amount of money. Now. There's a survey done by Gallup polling. That found that of Americans that are saving their money. They are overwhelmingly. Putting them in zero interest. Checking accounts are extremely low interest savings accounts. Now. That is terrible for the individual saving money because they're earning nothing on it. was great as they have that money. And it means when we get to the point. In twenty. One. When, we got the TRIFECTA. Of better treatments, better testing and a vaccine that steadily will spread through the population. The people that are reluctant to go out. And do things. And spend money and all the rest. Will have this huge reserve of money that will help the recovery in the economy for those that are suffering. So the parts of the economy that are pretty much dead in the water right now will be able to reemerge and the people who've saved so much money will be in a position to have a ready supply of funds to go resume activities. They've deferred. Air travel they didn't take vacations. They didn't do a events. They didn't attend that once we get. What I call the TRIFECTA of public health. Testing treatment and vaccines when we get those things going. That's when you'll see the economy be able to recover. One thing that is clear with these people who WHO HAVE MONEY that they've not had in the past? On the positive side paying down debt and a big way. Is Far as investing. There's been a lot of fear. Among people that are living on less than what they make using the money that they're building up to invest, and that's okay. You want to be able to sleep well at night and earning zero on your money, but knowing the money safe. Is a rational decision. You can make particularly with the market that is very heavily valued right now.
