America Has Lost Its First Principals Without the Bible
"We've lost our concept of first principles you know. As as a hemingway describes bankruptcy says it happens gradually then suddenly and this. This happened gradually for at least a century. And then i think we're sort of in the suddenly episode right now so one way. How is it that we've lost a sense of The the good turn the beautiful well because for instance. There's one book that you will not be taught in schools right now. You can be taught robin diangelo. You can be taught from candy. You could probably be taught mine comp but the one book that you can you will go to court if you teach. It is the bible in it in the twentieth century. Some some justices on the supreme court they found in the invisible ink above the nation's beneath the pin number is that the constitution says no bible in schools. It right now in schools you can have a religious liturgy. You can pray to the various secular saints. You can have rituals for or pride or we have a whole month for pride but if you any way pray to god in schools that's going to be a big problem in a lot of places and so i think conservatives fell for this trap where we believe that secular liberalism is just a neutral playing field and the left is going to do. But it's not it's obviously a rigged game and if we are not allowed to state plain truths god exists. There's a difference between good and bad men or women. We're not allowed to stay those truths than not only. We're not playing on an even playing field but we've already lost the debate before it's

Outside of the might not be one of the most known Cruise lines around there. But it's actually had a very long heritage. Yeah it has it so dates back. I'm one hundred seventeen years And all the way back to eighteen forties I says a family business which is which one of the things that's really interesting is being run by generations of the olson family and First An impressive Who founded the company was fridge olsen and his brothers will also captains of ships and i became ship owners so the family had a sort of a long deep rooted connection with shipping End as the company grew in terms of its size from small sort of sailing ships up to powered vessels.

Fred olsen took command of one of his father's vessels at the age of twenty three the captain at twenty three.

Well that's right. The sixties are flexing of what team before earlier weights of the bruins on. But you know one of the reasons. I i wrote. The book is because people down in trying to become so troubled many of them by what they see and don't and don't know that there's a much longer history this that's right.

So i try to talk to the latter part of the nineteen hundreds and really dennis to the really big changes that happened in in american higher education that time and that's the progressive movement a lot of the ideas that we get in really changing country twentieth and twenty first century. Really were the result of of very different political principles that were important into the country in the second part of the nineteen hundreds after civil war and that starting to universities and then influence later on the part of the twentieth century to the major political movement of progressivism and near the the more famous national figures.

Thank you so much that means a lot to me You know in starting this conversation today. We could obviously talk about the research stuff. But i wanted to start more at your own childhood because i think it's i get a real kick out of every time i read that you created intelligence test when you were in. Maybe even elementary school. Can you kind of tell me about that story. Sure when i was in elementary school i didn't created i did poorly on. Iq tests is a young kid. In the late fifties early sixties. They used to give iq tests every year to group iq tests. And i did very poorly on them and you might ask how i know since they didn't give us the scores. But when you get the test and you only finish one or two problems and everyone else's turn the page. It doesn't take a high. You realize that you bombed so when i was in sixth grade i was sent back to a fifth grade classroom to take an easier tests that they thought would be more suitable to my ability level and because it was a fifth grade classroom my was less afraid and i think i did better i in seventh grade. I decided try to figure out why did so much trouble when he just said. I did a project on development of the mental tests and i devised my own. I teach us the very famous thoroughbred test of mental gallotti's stone. Which i'm sure you've heard of in. It's so widely used still haven't gone along with everything else from winners

"Hey everybody charlie kirke with assault and brunei otherwise known as james. O'keefe you brought a couple of people in the room with you. See i need you hard time. James suzanne on each other a couple of years hard time but you are one of the few people that actually do something meaningful in the movement. I appreciate that. So you are now. In a whistle blower project tell us about that whistleblower in the room right now you can't see them but Usps whistleblower we had a to tv insiders. One came on your stage april moss.

Now charlie so we have a dozen they have come out and and it's going to be hundreds so we're going to hear from david and a couple of seconds here but i wanted to get an idea of whistle-blowing this used to be something. The media was actually interested in right and you just kind of filling the void of courageous expose style journalism. Why i think there's a relationship. The journalists have become slaves to their access. They they've become dependent on protecting the people in power. They they wanna protect the status quo. Cnn invites clapper on even though he committed perjury. They have a symbiotic relationship with the very people are supposed to be holding accountable so no one is willing to do this. Sort of aggressive watchdog journalism anymore and twentieth century. These explorers lost their mortgages their homes they got divorces but now there's life after whistleblowing because of the digital age and websites like gibson. Go facebook insider morgan. Common last month raised half a million dollars. Charlie in twenty four hours. What did he exposed. He released documents inside facebook. As a software engineer they had quote vaccine hesitancy so facebook admitted. Even if what someone is saying on facebook is true they will censor you and they don't want you to know that they're censoring you and to me. That's the part that so shocking. They want to hide what they're doing. We want transparency into baked tack. So the whistle blowers are coming out in spades.
The Legend of Charles Hatfield: Rainmaker
"Since ancient. Times wanted to understand the weather but without science they had to invent creative ways to explain it so the greeks told stories about a pantheon of gods who used whether for their own ends. The book of genesis gave us the story of noah and the catastrophic flood but by the time the industrial age was in full swing. People wanted to do more than explain the weather. They wanted to control it. After all by the nineteenth century powers that once seemed impossible. Even supernatural becoming commonplace humankind had harnessed electric light in glass bulbs. Couldn't someone figure out how to control the rain. The first man to vie for the title of scientific rainmaker was james pollard. Espy an american meteorologist. He believed that he could set these massive forest fires that would heat the air up and create enough condensation to make rain. Unfortunately for him and the forest he obliterated his theory didn't work. Throughout the rest of the nineteenth century other would be rainmakers had similar non results and pretty soon people began to suspect that the whole concept of weather modification was just wishful thinking until the early twentieth century. When a self taught weather aficionado enter the picture with a bit more optimism. His name is charles hatfield as a young man. Charles is working a day job as a sewing machine salesman when he comes across these stories about rainmakers like james pollard. Espy and he's like these guys are pedaling something valuable more than hope. They're selling life. Charles spent his youth working on his father's ranch in california so he understands the importance of rain. Water crops means a healthy harvest which means enough food to eat. If you could find a way to prevent droughts there might never be another famine. Sure every attempt at actually doing it has been a pretty big failure but maybe charles can crack the code and if he can he can definitely make a pretty penny off the deal. So charles learns everything he can about meteorology atmospheric pressure humidity wind patterns. It's not a formal education. But he feels like he really has a knack for it and when he's done with his books. Charles starts experimenting. He climbs a windmill tower near his father's ranch and starts messing around with some chemicals to create his secret formula. I'm not exactly sure what these experiments are or what goes into his miraculous rain potion. Charles never tells anyone his secrets. But i do know that by nineteen for a twenty nine year. Old charles is ready to go public with his new technology. He plays some ads in the local paper calling himself. A moisture accelerator. His work isn't magic. He stresses he says quote. I do not make rain. That would be an absurd claim. I simply attract clouds and they do the

The crowd was diverse people from all backgrounds. Who carried unique burdens. And they'd all arrived for one reason to meet a psychic healer called max in the center of the room. Max sat colorful beaded blanket inviting the downtrodden to line up to see him. But max wasn't a person. He was a crystal skull as people approached. Max they knelt many clasped hands in prayer. Some even kissed the skull. As tears ran down their cheeks they sought guidance healing and spiritual wisdom according to an ancient legend. Max possessed paranormal abilities.

The Marxist Agenda of the Modern American Journalist
"I pointed out a month or five weeks ago or so that marks profession as long as profession anyway was as a journalist. And it's not a surprise that when you see the the american marxist today in these various news platforms although the night but they deny whatever they want. I don't give a damn what they do not remember. This is part of the case. We're going to make the case. Use our language. Use it properly and identify what we need to identify. But he was a so-called journalist in the modern journalists so called are using marxists tactics and many of them don't even know it. They just play on a social activist on page ninety. Four point out in an interview with james ledbetter the editor of dispatches for the new york tribune a two thousand and a book of marxist articles for the tribune yes he wrote for the new york tribune ledbetter who looked at all the articles explains that the basic marks approach to his new york tribune columnist at an event that was in the news and election and uprising the second opium war the outbreak of the american civil war and sift through it until he could boil it down to some fundamental questions of politics or economics and then on those questions he would make his judgment and their sense marxist journalism does resemble some of the writing that is published today in journals of opinion and it is not hard to see a direct line between marxist journalistic writing and the kind of ten days writing on public affairs that characterized much political journalism. He says especially in europe but this was written some time ago. It's especially now in america in the twentieth century. So he wrote that in two thousand eight so the modern american journalists so called is not what the framers of the constitution had in mind. They're not about freedom of speech. They have taken the approach of karl marx himself. As who's was a journalist for a long time.

A saw worked with sarah on the archives many years ago sayre you and i worked really closely together while i was in college My very first internship ever was with jim messina and working on this oral history project. I like to think that it's what really launched my love of storytelling. I wanted to start by asking you. Why do you think it's important to preserve these stories as told in the words of those who lived it. So i am so happy to be doing this with you a saul. I think that judaism as grounded and stories like that is the legacy of our people. That's the foundation of haha. That's the foundation of what it means to be jewish as passing on stories Were the combination of thousands of years of stories and in regards to gimenez oral history project We collected stories of communities of people who who hadn't been given a platform to share. They hadn't been given a microphone. They hadn't been given an opportunity to talk about what happened to them when they lived and fled countries throughout the middle east. North africa and their stories are an incredibly critical part of contemporary jewish history. And where we are. Today with establishment of the state of israel nineteen forty eight posts showa post arab nationalism and uprisings in the middle east and north africa there was a major disruption of over two thousand years of continuous jewish life in the middle east north africa. Kinda came to an end and that is a huge part of the jewish story. And we have this very unique opportunity to collect the stories from the people who lived through this historical moment in time and it was an honor to collect these stories and hopefully add them to the record of jewish

"If people make up around six percent of niger's population which is quite significant minority but they spread really far across this health that often incorrectly groups with the house which is jurist largest ethnic group because they have a really long history of migration into house land so much so that the house time for ninety languages have become almost mutually intelligible with the about of the ninety people not all of them are nomadic. Herders and settled grazing has become more popular essence the twentieth century but many fulani are still magic moving hostile wherever the most favorable weather conditions are way of life is becoming a little bit hard at there's a growing population in nigeria and that's put them in increasing conflicts with the people who live along the traditional fulani routes and in addition climate change has reduced the amount of water available and has diverted does from then northerly routes down to the agricultural heartland towards the south of niger.

Do the Old Political Labels Still Apply?
"Do the old labels of conservative or tory and labour democrat. Do they have any application in a world where i saw it with my own eyes. Working for president trump. his appeal to the working class was undeniable as they billionaire republican quote unquote and on the left. We have a democrat party. At least in america that is mostly run by and speaking to rich white people in the coastal urban centers. Do the old labels. We became so used during the twentieth century. Have have they lost their connection to any tangible reality. I think you've got two aspects that. I think the there is still a base to each party. The democrats and but the basis evolved clearly bernie sanders as he himself said. He thought that his followers in policy terms essentially comprise thirty five forty percent of democrat. Well you know. That's up from five percent roosevelt's And and not more than five or ten percent as late as lbj or gay And i wouldn't have thought it was morton fifteen or twenty percent in clinton stay so so that has moved certainly and on the republican side. Obviously a lot of very wealthy have Sneath in the republicans and the most recent republican president has an. It's an honor to be in the in the batting line-up but warms up for him getting upcoming and perfect grants and also here both good friends But as you know better than most people the tremendous inroads that president trump made on the traditional Democratic hunting grounds instead of working class people general in hispanic american. And and so. Yes i it. The bases are evolving

Now here's today's news discerned differently. I am jim denison. Denison forum and this is the daily article for thursday april fifteenth. Twenty twenty one. The title is pro-life activist was nearly aborted. The power of change lives and encouragement from one of the greatest sermons of the twentieth century. Christianity today is profiling a woman who was nearly aborted in nineteen eighty nine. Her name is claire well. Her mother had an abortion at twenty weeks at killed clair's sibling soon thereafter. She discovered that she was still pregnant. She had not known that she was carrying twins. She returned for a second abortion. But it never took place due to complications from the first clara's now a wife the mother of four children and an activist for the cause of life in nineteen eighty nine. There were reportedly one million three hundred ninety six thousand six hundred and fifty eight abortions in the united states when you hear clare story. Don't you resonate with gratitude. That she wasn't one of them. That sentiment is a god given belief that every life is intrinsically valuable a fact christians called the sanctity of life doctrine was he the doctrine on display every day for example nationwide grief over the death of george. Floyd dante right continues to make headlines. We've seen tributes to jackie robinson who broke baseball's color barrier on this day in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven. We've seen the good news that a federal court has upheld an ohio law banning abortions on babies with down syndrome. And we've seen the tragic news. That father drowned last saturday. While rescuing two sons from riptide on the texas coast each story is another reminder that a saint augustine noted god loves each of us as if there were only one of us is making a case for christian optimism in recent days based on these fax number one. It's always too soon to give up on. God's grace number two jesus is as active in our world today as when he first rose from the dead number. Three god's capacity to change our fall in world depends not on our finished but on his omnipotence number. Four secularism fails to keep its promises. Demonstrating our need for faith in transcendent. God today let's consider a fifth of our lives are lived best in relationship with our maker. A fact that demonstrates the abiding relevance of our lord to our broken world as you may know gallup recently announced that church membership in america has fallen below fifty percent for the first time. The boston globe is responding with two paradoxical reports. One is that quote. The unwavering faith and passion of true belief is increasingly being channeled not into religious observance but into identity politics and the culture wars. I would add that. This can be problematic on a variety of levels. The other part of the article is far more positive. It states with links to substantiating research that quote regular worshippers tend to live longer to suffer lower levels of stress to have fewer symptoms of depression and have better cardiovascular and immune function similarly. The data suggests that religious worshippers tend to be happier to drink less to have lower rates of drug abuse and a give to charity and donate blood at above average rates. The article adds these words amid the uniquely. Difficult circumstances of the coronavirus pandemic a survey of self reported health conditions found that americans who attended religious services regularly where the only demographic group that appeared to avoid a decline in their mental health in twenty twenty. The article offers this sobering response. To the extent that religious practice across america is weakening. It seems only to likely that those benefits will fade to. It stands to reason that those who experienced the abundant life of jesus as described in. Johnston will demonstrate the results of that life in the world. for example i was drawn to the christian faith by the faith of christians. I didn't ask by tenth grade sunday. School teacher however could be saved a regenerator justified. I asked how i could have what she had. She said down and led me to faith in jesus when the spirit fell at pentecost peter declared the word of god just as his savior had earlier when he and john met a man. Lame from birth and x three. They're cared for him. Just as jesus had earlier cared for lehman in. John five. When peter and john refused to stop preaching the gospel acts four thirteen says that the religious authorities saw their boldness and recognize that they had been with. Jesus if others don't see the difference. Jesus makes in our lives. They have the right to question whether jesus will make a difference in their lives. Conversely if we are controlled by the spirit who empowered our lord. Jesus will fulfill his promise in john. Fourteen twelve that. Whoever believes in me will also do the work that i do. Here's the bottom line. If god's people will seek the power of god's spirit to speak god's word and share god's love our lives must inevitably impact our secular culture in ways we can see and ways we cannot. I was honored to bring the keynote address at the fifty seventh annual louisiana governors prayer breakfast on tuesday. It was deeply moving to hear governor john. Bel edwards described his faith so personally and to join legislators and christian leaders as they prayed for their state and our nation. The purpose of my address was to invite those present to a deeper commitment to the kingship of jesus and the i've ever known so god can use their influence to shape their culture in transformative lace. I closed my remarks with quotations from one of the greatest sermons of the twentieth century. A message delivered by dr s m lockridge on the kingship of jesus. The brilliant preacher said this of our risen lord he's the centerpiece of civilization. He's unparalleled he's unprecedented. He's preeminent is the loftiest idea in literature he's the fundamental doctrine of truth theology. He's the key of knowledge he's the wellspring wisdom. He's the doorway of deliverance. He's the gateway of glory. He's the pathway of peace he's the roadway of righteousness. He's the highway of holiness. The pharisees couldn't stand him but they found out they couldn't stop him pilot. Couldn't find any fault in herod couldn't kill him. Death couldn't handle him and the grave couldn't hold him. The pastor closed with this declaration. Jesus is the master of the mighty. He's the captain of the conquerors. He's the head of the heroes. He's the leader of the legislatures. He's the overseer of the over commerce. He's governor of governors is the prince of princess. He's the king of kings and he's the lord of lords. That's my king. Is he your king.

"Hey, what's going on and writer, watcher buoy, happy one? Okay. We have a lot of news to get to because yesterday were doing the water cooler solicit jump into it but start with Disney's acquisition of Twentieth Century, Fox. We've already seen some casualties. You know, in terms of many jobs. But now we're starting to see the casualties on the production slate, there was a film in film adaptation of most guard that was slated to go into production in just two weeks. But it sounds like that's not happening anymore. HD? Would we know? Pantley Disney has axed mouse guard which was split to be directed by maize mentors west ball. And starring Idris Elba.

And so, you know, so, you know, so Neue Mizuno this is going to be a motion capture animated film, which was adapting David Peterson's beloved comic series of the same name. But it seems to have been scrapped by Disney in the first major film, a casualty of the acquisition. But it seems that they disease allowing the producers which includes Matt Matt Reeves to shop the project around to other studios with potential for new home to be at Netflix. This is so strange because I feel like out of anything that was on the FOX's slate that they inherited I feel like most guard is so Disney. It's like, you know, I it's an authoritarian tale of like, you know nights. It's. These, but but with mice in creatures like that sounds so Disney to me would you thinking, why do you think they are getting rid of this? Well, according to some sources to the Hollywood reporter just ni wants thout. Fox's output to be mostly adults oriented fair because they want to have sort of that jurisdiction over the family market and mouthguard is just too similar to other properties that they have already going on like lion. King jungle book other CGI motion capture heavy films, and they just kind of want a twenty twenty two hundred FOX to just focus on the more adult oriented fare expertise section of avatar. I guess that makes sense one of my favorite board games of all time has called bites and mystics, and it kind of takes its cues from the most guard series. It's it's it's kind of. I mean, it's it's it's definitely it's own thing with his own characters own story, but it definitely took inspiration for most garden, I know that's being developed into feature films. So this never happens. We might end up getting that which could be cool. Speaking of the FOX acquisition we from day one. We've been talking about.

"And I feel like I kind of get when I need to get from those for like shows like orange is the new black or house of cards or whatever it is. I don't know. I guess I guess I'm just haven't been super impressed with Netflix original movie selection to the point where I would pay extra for special features for it at this point. But, you know, they're always thinking more in like the TV Rome. Like, I wanna see like stranger things extra features. I'd like to see, you know, some cards, you know, in the writer's room, or you know, all that kind of stuff like the stuff that you'd get from a normal DVD. Yeah. Yeah. That's true. I could I could I could see the there are enough. Netflix shows out there. And maybe like they could do something with like stand up specials and stuff to have like a, you know, have the comedians like walkman through some of the process of putting together those shows because they do a ton of comedy and stuff like that too. So yeah, I mean, there's definitely a lot of potential there. I don't know. I wonder if that's something that they would be interested in as a company, I just don't under-. Because their whole business model was to get people subscribed in watching as much content as they possibly can. And it seems like these special features especially for the movies that are released is Artie produced. So that's content that like is very easy. Probably the license the stuff that you know, for like stranger things and original shows. I I can't imagine it would be that much money to produce. Like, it'd be a lot less money to produce that than it is producing their original programming. You know, so I feel like you would just keep people binging, which is what they want. They want people. There is all time. Let's go out to Twentieth Century Fox, which apparently is using. A I to predict audience behavior in movie trailers, Ben what is going on here. Yeah. There's a new study that says that twentieth century FOX's using artificial intelligence to analyze movie trailers in the hopes of finding thing parts of those trailers that audiences respond to and then recreating those elements in trailers for other movies to try to. I mean like Hollywood is is so drilled down on analytics and details, and you know, they they've commissioned all these different studies and every studios doing this where they have all of these numbers that they you know, it's all about data crunching trying to predict audience behavior. So now the verge has pointed us to this study that was published last month where Twentieth Century Fox created a machine called Merlyn, which is an experimental movie. Attendance prediction and recommendation system, and it's full of all sorts of technical jargon. And I in. This article at slash film. You guys can I would highly actually recommend that people read it because it's way easier to read and comprehend than it is for me to talk about it because it's so sort of out in the out it's very out there. But basically what happens is researchers take individual frames from movie trailers use this machine learning to label specific items on the screen like trees, and cars and faces and stuff like that. And then they compare that data with similar data from other trailers, and and then movie attendance numbers to see if they can sort of draw a correlation between all this stuff and help predict audience viewing patterns, so I mean. It's like explosions equal money. I guess I guess yeah. There's a little bit of that. They actually did like a thing where the this Merlin system, I guess took in all of the analytics from the Logan trailer and then spat out a bunch of predictions of what audiences would want to see based on the images that they found and in this Logan trailer and based on previous movie attendance numbers and the number the predictions weren't. Exactly, right. But like the top five movies that audiences actually did pay to see the the computer system predicted those. But just not in the correct order. They didn't know they didn't put them in the top five. They actually put them in the top twenty movies that audiences that they predicted that audiences would want to see so there's sort of on the right track here, even though it does sound kind of nuts. But like I said it's easier to sort of comprehend this data in text form than it is for me trying to talk about. It in the abstract..

"Twentieth Century, Fox has pulled scenes from the predator. After director, Shane black casts. His friend registered. Oh, okay. Not cool. Twentieth Century Fox was just days away from locking picture on the predator when an urgent note came in delete the scene featuring Stephen struggle struggle. A forty seven year old didn't have a big role just two three page scene. Shared with actress, Olivia Munn but last month, mud. Learn that struggle is registered sex offender. My God who pleaded guilty twenty ten after facing allegations that he attempted to lure a fourteen year old female into a sexual relationship with the internet. How did Libya I I really respect her? How did she even find out this information? She went to the FOX executives, and they decided to pull him from the movie, I'm very impressed with her. How did no I'm just making this up? But I betcha she hated the guy, and I betcha she had some friend in law enforcement or some friend with that looked him up in some capacity, whether it'd be an sex offender database or Google or whatever and they. Found this little gem, and she took it to the executives. Do you ever do that when you're working with someone, and you don't think that they're right? I know I've never done that. So you out their background. Extensively with you. And you were the first now, no, I just show up. I'm the idiot that shows up and has a party and has fun and doesn't think twice, and you know, a couple of times here and there have been a weird situation, but I never reported them. So I have a friend who used to be an in house counsel for a company, and he used to have to do background checks on people's part of his job. So how do you do that? Like is this a bat, there's background checks, and then there's background checks. Right. Like where you go and really go through the garbage and almost like hiring a private detective. Well, it wasn't quite that extensive, but one of the things that he had access to was this online database where you punch in someone's name the city that they live in, and it will tell you down to how many traffic tickets, they have every interaction that they have with the cops that results in charges being filed even if they weren't convicted of a crime charges that were planned out charges that they were convicted of if they were tried. In acquitted all of that information would pop up. So of course, we plugged in all of our friends. And what did you find out a lot of traffic? Tickets a few d- wise, no-one no-one guilty of anything serious had. Well, that's not so bad. I know people now that. You know, especially with dating and apps that want to do background checks, and I don't think there's anything wrong with that necessarily. I don't know. I don't know that I'd go that far. But would you want to know if you were going on a date with someone they were convicted of now, if it's a first date, I don't even know if I'm going to like them, I might not ever see them again. So what do I care, but if it becomes more serious have I ever done that? No, what about date three or four. Now, I've never done that to know if they were convicted of any and now that I have kids involved, it's a whole different deal. But convicted I mean, I I usually I meet people through my friends. So I assume that they're they're not felons. But you never know. Maybe I would what about bankruptcies would you want to know about those? Money's never been an issue for me before. Maybe now it should be. I should learn something. I know because I like I'm still that idiot that falls in love for for love, you know. So I don't really care what his Bank account is. I really truly I've never cared. And I I don't think I if I were fell again, I wouldn't care. You actively wouldn't wanna know any of that ever looked for any of that information my entire life, and I've been married twice. And I've dated if a convicted felon, well, and that's going to be problematic. I would imagine. But I I would assume I know it's a convicted felon, don't you think maybe maybe not some people talk about reinforcing my singled him, thank you. But when you have kids, it's a whole other deal. You don't need any of these creeps around tens of thousands of Californians have been registered to vote incorrectly by the State Department of motor vehicles, including some who were assigned the wrong political party preference. Officials insist the heirs were limited to twenty three thousand people of the one point four million voter registration files sent to the elections offices between late April. And now when California's new automated motor-voter system went into effect and actually early August Californians who were affected will soon receive notifications in the mail instructing them to check their voter registration status. Now, I think this has been going on longer than they're reporting because I have friends who this is happened to where they show up to vote, and they're registered in one political party and they show up. And then they say, oh, no, no, no. You're not a democrat or Republican or whatever. And they just get it all wrong. Why shouldn't be doing this at the DMV? The DMV is rude up organization. And it's not what they're supposed to do now. But we've also seen. Problems with voting machines. Anyway, so why not give I mean, I'm of two minds with this. I mean, what about the post office? Well, you get the postcard at the post office, and then you mail it to the county registrar. So they're just giving you the postcard they're not doing anything with it. But with the DMV they're actually doing stuff with the information, which means they screw it up because the DMV screws everything. Do they really they do? Oh, okay. I haven't had issues with the DMV. I've had nothing but great experiences. Don't ask. Why? So Mike an appointment. I go one o'clock. I'm here for my one o'clock five take your picture.
