"Annual survey of the 50 states rates the bottom ten from worst on 50 to 41 as New Jersey, New York, California, Connecticut, Maryland, Minnesota, Vermont, Hawaii, Rhode Island, and Alabama. All right. So it sounds like I should stay living in Nevada. Next question has Russell fox encountered any businesses that present gambling wins and losses as part of a diversified portfolio of investments on their tax returns. In other words, the firm allocates a certain amount of capital to gambling, such as staking a pro and the rest to other activities. Unfortunately, alchemy went out in the Middle Ages and it's not allowed in the tax code. And a fundamental principle of U.S. tax law is that the type of income remains the same when it moves from person to person. So gambling income is always gambling income. And that includes staking. So basically we don't see this because it's not allowed. All right? The last question we have is from somebody, it was a convoluted question and I'm going to simplify it. I hope I get it right. Get to big W two G doesn't want to have a big tax bill on April 15th. So he wants the casino to take out 30% now, so he doesn't have a problem later. He wants to know if most is this legal to ask and will most casinos comply. Yes, and yes, it is absolutely allowed. Most casinos do comply if you ask them to withhold. I mean, casinos obviously are large businesses. They send plenty of money to the IRS. For various withholding. And they are supposed to comply. And by the way, you can do this for state taxes, too. And voluntarily have state tax withheld, and I have clients who do this. So this absolutely can be done.
Matt Palumbo: Before Elon Musk, Twitter Favored Liberals
"Yeah I mean as I said earlier your Twitter was just sort of this mass liberal amplification your narrative amplification machine And there was a study done these other earlier this year or last year and they were looking at social media audiences or rather the kind of post that got promoted And they were going to say like based on that how liberal or conservative would it be if it was if it was an equivalent congressional district And basically what they found was that if Twitter was its own congressional district it would be more liberal than Vermont which is the most liberal state in the country So you can go to Vermont and you would actually live in a less liberal atmosphere than if you were someone who was getting their news from Twitter So that just kind of sets the stage for the kind of influence they had And there was this scandal in 2007 called the journalist scandal where it turned out there was hundreds of journalists politicians entertainers and when they go on TV and all about the same liberal narrative but it's not because they're all reading the same sources It's because they're literally in a group chat together coordinating this And if you are someone who's unfortunate enough to be on Twitter like I am you see it without even knowing there's a list You just see okay that guy basically cut and pasted his argument and changed two words around But it's very effective And it's to the point where even if you want to use the platform for a non political purpose like you sign up for it and say I want to get sports news Before the Elon Musk take over the kind of pose that would get promoted even if they were sports related there would be a political net angle to it So it would be like if you followed football you'd be getting ads complaining about Colin Kaepernick not playing or racism in the league Everything had to have a political subcomponent It's just the bus takeover that's kind of gone There's a lot of people who think right wing accounts are getting promoted but it's really just the left wing's not getting promoted in a more equal playing field So that's why

The Last Election
"No one cracked the code explain what you mean by that. So basically, of course, what happened here is that ultimately they did have a better performance. The Democrats have every right to claim victory after what happened on Tuesday. I hate to say it, but it's true. But as you said, it was not because of abortion. It was not because of January 6th. It was not because of our democracy, election deniers. They love to throw those phrases around. And it wasn't because of president Donald J Trump. You look at some of the things here, if I wanted to go through these real quickly, just the abortion issue. I mean, let's do it. Let's take them one by one. All right, with Dobbs, right? They immediately made this the number one policy issue. Abortion abortion, there's going to be a wave of pro choice voters. That clearly did not happen. Now you have a couple of states that ultimately pass measures to enshrine abortion in their state constitution. California, Michigan, Vermont, deep blue states, obviously that was going to happen. Then you had red states Montana and Kentucky vote to shoot down pro life measures. But the interesting thing here is when you look at Kentucky, deep red state, right? It's shot down a pro life measure by 5 points. And yet on the same ballot, senator Rand Paul, one of the best in Congress, gets reelected by 24 points. How does that make sense? When those voters crossed over to vote for his pro choice abortion loving Democrat opponent, it would stand a reason that that's what would happen. Same thing in Montana. They shot down a pro life measure by 6 points. But the Republicans all dimensional hold, both of the state, congressional seats, again, wouldn't one or both of those flip on that pro choice way. Clearly what happens here is that like with the Kansas pro life measure earlier this year, these voters are absolutely single issue. They will come out, vote on abortion and go home.

"But the country is not the American medical association. The country is not the American bar association. The country is not Yale University. Yet. November 8th. November 8th. That's right. That's why it's so important. So listen. If you're going to vote libertarian, you might as well vote Democrat. Just the thought I spoke about this at length last week, or the week before. I don't understand the mentality of a conservative who votes for the Libertarian Party. I'd rather see the left win than give the Republicans a vote. Okay. I dealt with on that issue. At length, I won't continue. Just to tell you the only obstacle to the Democrats of the Republicans. Not the libertarians, not sitting out the vote. The Republicans, they're very flawed, doesn't matter. Fix the flaws after we prevent the left from doing what Xi Jinping does. But this is really the lesson that you must know. It's not money. It might have been money in the case of big pharma. And in the case of many of those who support big pharma. But it is power in terms of the left. That's what they most want. He is crushing his own economy in China. In order to consolidate his grip on power. We'll see what happens. But the lesson for all of us is what the leftmost wants. Go to my website. You want to fight, support ADF, lines defending freedom last two days of appealing to you. Give whatever you can. The banner was at my website, alliance defending freedom back in a moment. Get to meet the pseudo Ali. Well, everybody, we are already at the final segment of today's show. And I'll just read to you one more thing from this piece. This is so educational, my Friends. So important that you understand the left is more interested in power than even in money. There's a lot of there are a lot of lessons to be learned in that, by the way. The Leninist leader, that is she outline his vision for the next 5 years at the weekend vowing to protect China from what he sees as an increasingly hostile world, while indoctrinating every sector of society, including business into Xi Jinping thought. I told you this is the new Mao. He also announced the new Politburo standing committee 6 men who will help him run the country, which he stacked with ideologues who were seen as short on expertise and experience. Lee Kang was brought in as a new premier, the former leader of Shanghai, who oversaw a zero COVID lockdown on the city that wrecked its markets and brought misery to millions of citizens. Wow, he's going to now help run the country. What she believes in is an economic model where he relies on state sector. And the private sector is controlled by the party. That is the dream of every leftist in America, not every liberal, every leftist. Where the state runs the economy. And it's always done in part. Take over healthcare. I don't know there were a majority of Americans want the government to take over healthcare. It may well be. The thinking is a good model, Canada is a good model. What's the good model for that? We did once have the greatest healthcare system. It wasn't the greatest for every single person. There is no such thing. It doesn't work. Life, life doesn't work out according to dreams. We can aim for something. But it was better to be middle class American than middle class Canadian or middle class English or middle class German. With the healthcare that was available in this country..

That's correct. I don't know. So I think you're right. Alan, I made it up somehow. I won't be saying that again. He made it up. All right, look it up, guys. Look up holy crow. That would be very interesting. Okay, he thinks it preexisted me and you think that I made it up. Okay, I have no idea. I have a very interesting story for you. And the world scene. And I will have it for you. In the moment, about she, who is now elected contrary to whatever they have is law in their country in China, to a third term as president. He is dictator. He is the new Mao. So if you want to understand China, you have to understand that he is the new male. Which is a very frightening thing for the Chinese people, although vast numbers will support him. Because people don't value liberty as much as they value being taken care of. And for reasons that I don't understand, I can't find my own printout of the piece. But guess what? Well, I have another way of finding it because I say these things. But this is important. There we go. Ready? Ready. From the daily mail, Xi Jinping has begun his historic third term as Chinese leader by crashing the stock market with tens of billions wiped off the value of leaving firms in recent days. Exchanges in Hong Kong Shanghai and Shenzhen all fell, this week after she was handed another 5 years in power and used it to tighten his grip on the country, some 70 $1 billion. Did you know this? This is amazing. We're also wiped off the value of Chinese firms listed overseas as foreign investors fled in the face of Xi's increasingly authoritarian plans for the Chinese economy. It comes after he stripped top economists and experts from positions of power. And instead filled the post with loyalists. Analysts say he had appears he is willing to stunt Chinese growth provided at hands him more power. That's it. That's why I'm reading this to you. This is the left on steroids. They are more interested in power. Than they even are in money. He is willing to hurt his country's finances for the sake of power. Does that sound familiar? Did not Joe Biden do that from the day he was elected from the day he was inaugurated, I should say. With the pipeline, the excel pipeline, remember that? The left lies to you when they say, oh, the whole thing behold the inflation. It's due to Russia and the invasion of Ukraine. No, my Friends. It proceeded Russia and the invasion of Ukraine. The decimation of the American economy and its inflation were created by Joe Biden, the Democrats on the left. Because of their maniacal fixation on getting rid of the most important resource we have, which is fossil fuel and even fracking and natural gas. Anything but wind and solar. They are more interested in power the left than in money. That is why this article is so important. The left is the left is the left. The American left does not have the power that Xi Jinping has. They would love it, but it doesn't have it yet. Half this country stands in the way. But they've taken over every institution that I can think of. So they think they got the country..

"We return. The Dennis prager show. Academy Awards. I'm on the air. Is that right? I'm on the air, holy crow. Where did holy crow come from? I know why. I'd probably because people wouldn't want to say Jesus Christ, I think, and they would say crow instead of Christ. Is that right? Do you think that's why? Otherwise, what is holy crow have to do with? I know holy mackerel. It's because Catholics wouldn't eat fish on wouldn't eat meat on Fridays. A holy crow? Oh, that's interesting. Is that possible? A Sean, have you ever heard holy crow? Yes. He did. Okay, so I didn't make it up. He heard it from you. No, wait, did you hear it from me or did you hear it in your life? It's possible you heard it from me. Holy crow. Oh boy. Got a laugh because it's a very difficult time we're in. Very difficult, indeed. Yep, yep, yep, yep. Looking at the coals got a lot of good ones and a lot to say. I'm torn. Okay, swanton, Ohio, judge. Is that your name judge? Yes, sir. Hi. Hello. Hey, so this is all new to me, the channel. Just stumbled across it. And I've seen this guy in the news here and there. Just, I mean, are the Democrats that desperate that they're going to stand behind this guy? I don't know who's worse than Joe Biden. So my answer to you is that they will stand by him. And. Believe it or not, I understand that. They're thinking is, look, if he's really not capable of being a senator, then what happens is that it does the governor or is it every state is different or is that true for all the states? The governor then appoints, but of course, the gambling that there'll be a democratic governor then obviously. So I believe it or not, I understand. See the left understands you don't vote for the man you vote for the party. It's the naive who say I vote for the man, but there are many naive voters, and they will not vote in most instances for somebody who was that impaired. So the issue was not who will Democrats vote for it to independence vote for. And that's why they didn't they wanted very early voting. Among other reasons. Okay, let's see here. Somebody running for school board. Greg, in cheska, Minnesota. Hello. Hi, Dennis. Hi. I'm one of a group of four that are running for four of 7 open seats in Carver county. And I started listening during your last segment that had to do with some of the gender training and the other issues. And I'll tell you one thing for sure it's been a lot more than I expected it to be. As far as what the media has done and they're doing, as I was sitting on hold waiting for you, I got notified by the Minneapolis star and tribune wanted to come after me for a rather generic email. But my point being is that what I've learned through this is how much influence. The school unions have the teachers unions and how little influence teachers and parents have. And that's one of the major issues that our team of four are running together as is to get the parents and teachers back into the so is your area, is that county liberal or conservative? The western side of it, if you were to look at a map of the twin cities, I'm about one minute out of the cornfield. So we're right on the very edge. If you look at the eastern side of the county, it's much more blue, moving to the western side, which is clearly red. So we've got our work cut out for us, but we're feeling very strongly. Doing a lot of door knocking, we're getting a lot of very positive results in it, but it's just been an incredible idol. Is the issue of the trans increase and support to hide this from parents? Is that come up? Oh my gosh, that's what it's all about. Okay, good. Okay, that's what I wanted to hear. You made my day. That's it. If this is not, if this does not turn out to be the Achilles heel of the left, then there was very little hope for our society. If people think that schools should hide from parents that their daughter says she's a boy. Then. Nothing short of disengagement from the schools will work. Good luck, my friend. I'd like to hear from you after the election. Either way. One.

"Almost 640,000 early votes have already been cast in Pennsylvania. More than 7 in ten of those voters have been from Democrats. I imagine they were not fully aware of fetterman status. Political and media malpractice led to this moment. They've destroyed election day, the Democrats on the left. But G, anybody who even utters the thought that they might have meddled with elections by doing any of these things. Is considered an attack on democracy. Even if you recognize their elected people as elected, but you can't even think maybe there was something amiss here, maybe something awry. Do you think it's healthy for their favorite word democracy? To have people 1 million 10s of millions of ballots sent out a month before election day? Why couldn't you even vote a month before election day? What was wrong with election day? As we've had it all through American history, what was wrong with it? What was wrong with paper ballots? You can't hack paper ballots. I'm not saying the machines were hacked. I'm just telling you that if you really cared about election integrity, you'd go back to a paper ballot. How come we knew the election results the night of the election in almost every case in modern American history? And now we don't. We don't know what for days. Why is that? Does that increase your belief in the integrity of the elections? It's an interesting question she asks. Barack Obama supposed to campaign for fetterman on November 5th. Will this go forward? Does the former president believe this is appropriate? We shall see. What do you think will happen? I don't think he can cancel. You too? I agree. You agree? The fetterman campaign, but he will look ludicrous. He eased in a no one position Obama. Which is rare for him. The fetterman campaign is refused to release his medical records or make his doctors available to the media. Giselle fetterman, his wife, has said it is bigotry, ableism, to suggest her husband may not be fit to serve. She is gone so far as to shame NBC News reported dasha burns who bravely did her job when she interviewed fetterman and remarked that he didn't seem to understand her questions. Misses fetterman even demanded there be consequences quote unquote for burns, having said so. Which brings me, she writes to my second point about Tuesday night, the exposure of egregious media malpractice. There were too many so called reporters to count who vouched for John fetterman. Remember their names, Molly, Jong fast, Kara Swisher, Rebecca tracer, and John hendrickson just to name a few. Hardly any one came to dasha burns defense. In fact, major media figures like Swisher brought out the pitchfork and claimed the reporter was to blame, may be burns as bad at quote small talk tweeted Swisher. The message was clear if you there to report on fetterman's condition your career is in jeopardy. Potentially one of the most egregious examples of media malpractice was committed on the part of MSNBC. A source told daily mail dot com that in three of four interviews that John fetterman conducted on the cable news network between the time of his stroke and the burns interview, closed captioning was used and not disclosed to the audience. The sheer ugly truth is the media didn't want to know because this Senate seat is too critical to them. It gives Democrats a chance to hold on to the Senate, so the vast majority of those in the media don't want to consider whether a candidate who suffered a stroke. It is healthy and fit to survive. Because the media do for the Democratic Party, what the communist media did in Soviet Union for the Communist Party. I draw no distinction. Do you? The pravda ever differ with the Communist Party? Because the left wing media ever differ with the Democratic Party. Maybe, but I can't remember an instance. Do not despair my Friends first vote second get everybody you know to vote. Send out columns on your Twitter account. Your Facebook, whatever it might be. I feel for you and I mean it very, very sincerely. Who have to hide from friends and or relatives. Even children, what you actually think. I think this is a first in American history. Parents afraid of their children. With regard to their political moral social views. If you just say a boy is a boy or a girl as a girl, you might lose contact with one of your children. I don't mean to transgender child. I mean assist gender child. Because they've been brainwashed to believe you're a bigot. If you say a boy is a boy, and a girl is a girl..

"And that's why alliance defending freedom is standing with these parents to make sure that they're right to make those decisions as being respected. Yes, the left who run our schools have contempt for parents and their authority. Is that a fair statement? Yes. So what is the story in the Wisconsin case? Where is it at now? So we're right in the middle of litigation on all of that, making arguments that what the policies in Wisconsin were doing undermine that fundamental right of parents that even our Supreme Court has said, parents have the fundamental right to direct the care upbringing and education of their children. And so policies like these in Wisconsin, policies that were challenging in Virginia and other places undermine that fundamental right appearance. And so we're hopeful that the courts are going to uphold these rights, strike down those policies and make sure that what happened in Wisconsin or the other places doesn't happen anywhere else in the country. So what would the court if the court rules in your favor and really the child's favor our favor? What will they be saying? Will they be saying that you, the school can not do this without parental agreement? Is that what the ruling would mean? Yep. That would be part of it. It's saying that parents get to make these decisions about their child's education about their healthcare about their mental health, not government bureaucrats, not school officials. It's parents that have the right to make these decisions. And so it would be putting a block on any of these policies, any actions by school officials to undermine that decision making authority of parents. Now, you know, folks, why ADF is so important.

One of the most prescient observers of the political scene is the next issue. Yes, his own major, widely heard podcast, he's of course the producer, director. I don't know if he's director. He's the creator of 2000 mules. The important film on what happened in the last election, and now the book is out of 2000 mules based on the movie. It is definitely worth reading, dinesh d'souza. Are you there? I am here, Dennis, I'm glad to be with you. Thanks for that introduction. And looking forward to our conversation. Well, it's good to have you as always dinesh. So I noted to my audience earlier. The dishonesty that surrounded the John fetterman candidacy. It is even remarkable for the left that even his doctors would collude in lying about his condition. Any thoughts on this? Well, I think we've reached a point where the dishonesty is so brazen that the facts are there for us to see and someone is telling us that it's not what we observe. Our eyes are lying to us. Ears are lying to us a brain is lying to us. See, normally for the media, you don't have that. Something happens, they distort the story, but no one's in a position to compare the propaganda with the original to see the extent of the manipulation. But here, the federman debate came first, people could see it and then, of course, I was chuckling particularly about the Philadelphia inquirer. They said, well, I editorial aboard meant and we came up with the sober judgment that fetterman clearly won that debate. You're kidding. I did not know that. Boy, you know, I just wasn't. This isn't just one guy. Apparently, their entire editorial my God. I have to say, Phil, in the race downhill between major cities in America, Philadelphia may be winning that race. I think the number of reports of distorted life I get from Philadelphia. This is even I'm shocked because many people on the left did acknowledge that he did poorly. I mean, tragically poorly. And the Philadelphia inquirer editorial board said he won? I mean, even the fetterman campaign, you know that they recognize they did badly because they were explaining they said that his, you know, his clothes captioning system seems to have malfunctioned. So they were giving reasons for why he came across as I mean bumbling an incoherent is inadequate because that described Biden. This guy was at a whole different level that made even Biden look like an epitome of clarity. By the way, explained to me he's was he reading answers. I don't even understand that part. The claim of the campaign was that fetterman has difficulty with processing information. He needs to sort of see it visually. And so their idea was to essentially transcribe everything that the moderator was saying, everything at odds was saying, so federman could sort of feed almost like a teleprompter and then respond to that. I mean, this was obviously indicative make life easier for betterment, but that didn't help either. And then they claimed later that, I mean, I laugh because to me it sounded like, well, you know, the reason I lost the Olympic hundred yard dash is my wheelchair with malfunctioning..

"Hi everybody, I'm Dennis prager. As a an introduction to my guest. I'd like to tie this into my work on the Bible. The third volume of my 5 volumes of commentary on the first 5 books just came out deuteronomy, genesis and exodus had been out. So deuteronomy has the ten commandments. The ten commandments, I'm often asked what I think the most important commandment is, there's no answer to that, obviously, but different times in my life I've had a different answer. My current answer is honor your father and mother. Because parental authority, the idea that the parents run the house and not the children. Is essential to the development of civilization. Every cult and every totalitarian movement begins by diminishing, reducing, eliminating parental authority. That is what the left in America is doing. It's a cult. It's a totalitarian movement. Every leftist movement in history has been totalitarian, since Vladimir Lenin. Not liberal left. And they're starting with the diminution of parental authority. The alliance defending freedom, one of my favorite organizations in the country. Is fighting for. Parental rights. And I have Matt sharp, senior counsel for the alliance defending freedom. On video and audio and that's your, is that your area of expertise or concern Matt? That is. We've been heavily involved in that, both on defending parents in court, but also trying to pass good laws that make sure that these violations of the rights don't happen in the first place. Can you give an example of an attack on parental authority? Well, I think the segue is very well with what you were chatting about earlier with the transgender and the national health services. We've got cases where school officials counselors and others are socially transitioning these kids. So this is giving them a new name, a new pronoun, sometimes even bringing clothes to school so that a young boy can change and start dressing as a girl and doing it without any discussion with the parents without seeking the parents permission and sometimes intentionally deceiving parents about it. So we've got a case going on in Wisconsin where this happened where a young 12 year old girl was being socially transitioned by school officials without the parents knowing. And when the parents confronted the school about this and said, we're working with our daughter, we're getting our counseling. We're helping navigate this. We want you to respect our decision as a parent to recognize that our daughter is biologically a female and not to sew these seeds of confusion. The school said, no, we're not going to do that. We know better than you. And that's why these parents and others join to sue and challenge these policies that are undermining from the rights that are pushing kids down this one way pathway towards puberty blockers towards cross sex hormones towards irreversible surgeries that we know do irreparable damage to kids..

It means I don't lie because it hurts to tell the truth. Leaving medical institutions in Spain are speaking out against the newly proposed trans law. That would allow minors to self declare as transgender and access irreversible medical transition procedures. The second largest printed daily newspaper in Spain el mundo published the story on its front page last week with the headline, psychiatrists explode against the trans law. It can bring a lot of pain and regret to many people. Wow, psychiatrists in the United States are among the worst of all the medical groups. You don't get more woke than psychiatry. This is long-standing. Remember how many psychiatrists? Signed a petition that Barry Goldwater missed mentally defective and to be what year did Goldwater run? 1964 64. So that's 34, 54 years ago. 56 years ago, 58 years ago. The corruption in American psychiatry as compared to Spanish psychiatry is interesting. Subheadings were translated as there is an avalanche of adolescents who believe they are trans and the majority are not. And what do we do with someone whose penis has been severed and wants it back? Well, that was in the second largest printed daily in Spain. Wouldn't have that in the U.S.? Bernard lay in a Sydney based independent journalist reports that the directors of Spain society of psychiatry association of child and adolescent psychiatry and society of endocrinology were interviewed by el mundo, voicing their fears and objections to the trans law, lowered the politicians were left wing. But the doctors were not. Unlike the doctors in America, not all doctors, all the doctors associations. With rare exception. The draft trans law allows a change of sex in the registry from the age of 12 with judicial approval from the age of 14 with parental support, but a judge can override parental refusal, and from the age of 16 independently. The medical societies of Spain share the concerns of Sweden, Finland and England, whose national health departments have all abandoned the gender affirming model of care after performing independent systemic, systematic reviews of the available evidence. Most recently, the United Kingdom's national health service proposed new guidelines last week recognizing that children and adolescents identifying as transgender transgender may be experiencing a transient phase. And warning that doctors should not encourage them to change their names and pronouns. As social transition is not a neutral act and could have significant effects in terms of psychological functioning. Additionally, they have banned the use of puberty blockers in patients under 18. Making exceptions only in certain cases for strict clinical trials. Doctor Kelso arango, head of the child and adolescent psychiatry department of one of Spain's leading public university hospitals told el mundo in an interview earlier this month at the hospital at which he works as seen in explosion in young people identifying as transgender. On a day to today basis at the gregorio maranon hospital in Madrid, we are assisting an explosion, a boom, an exponential increase in adolescents who say they are trans and they are not. This is madness. So if an American psychiatrist said this is madness, there might well be threatened of losing his or her. License to practice medicine. It's going to hurt a lot of people. A lot of young people of disorders think they're going to fix them by becoming trans. When they're not. Both Democrat and you'll have hundreds of thousands of more young people doing precisely that..

"What statement were they making? It's unsafe up here? What statement were they making to the public? Do they understand how ludicrous it looks to people? You can't see a single member of the base section's face? Those of you in Chicago, if any of you have any. Contact with the orchestra. I would love you to let me know what's going on there. I need them to understand that for most people, they look stupid. And just that's just the way it is. This is merely November 2022. Do they know that it's over? Will they wear it forever? Will they wear it every flu season? Will they wear it? Every cold season? Are they afraid of dying if they breathe in air with other orchestra members? Why did they do this? So my suspicion is it's solidarity with one or two of the others. Because people are sheep. What you say to the ones who want to wear masks is wear a mask. I'm not? You're not in solidarity with me, not wearing a mask. Why should I be in solidarity with you? Wearing a mask. That useless piece of cloth that makes you look like it made Bernie Sanders on the plane if indeed it was Bernie Sanders. As my wife said, maybe it's a double governor. But since we were flying from Vermont to Washington, and it looked identical to Bernie Sanders. The evidence was strong that it probably was. Masks. The ability of people to believe nonsense is unlimited. It is its infinite. There is no limit to the amount of drivel human beings can believe. That's why I've said from the earliest times in my life, I love people, and I have contempt for humanity. One a prager 7 7 6. It's a fun thing to do, my Friends, to have something that precious in your life that you travel for. It doesn't have to be classical music. But these are the things I, you know, I told you experiences are more important than objects for happiness. Something to think about. Like when we go to Israel with listeners. Back in the moment..

"I'm going to ask Alan my producer here and cofounder of PragerU. Do you think Bernie Sanders has a clue what PragerU is? I would say no. I would say no as well. Which reinforces my belief that they know nothing about us being the conservative world nothing. We know all about them. We study under them, we watch them, we hear them, but there is no symmetry here. Their oblivious to our existence, except for what The New York Times or any other left wing source says, the reason I so I was in the first four cities by Salem colleagues, a reported to you that when I was there, it was a wonderful trip, actually. You could read about the story as I told it with my black Uber driver in Philadelphia. And it was just, it was a great scene. You should read about it. It's my column this week. At Dennis prager dot com hall elsewhere. My wife and I, my wife met me in Chicago and on Saturday night, we went to the Chicago symphony orchestra. We bought these tickets months ago. So you know how much I am involved in classical music and generally speaking people think that Chicago symphony orchestras is the best orchestra in the country, which is hard to assess because there are really many great ones. But that's its reputation. And one of the two, three greatest on earth. So we got seats in the back, right behind the orchestra. There were some seats there. So you're almost sitting in the orchestra, the sound. Sound was beyond belief. My wife and I travel anywhere in the country if a great orchestra plays either one of two symphonies by a composer named Anton brookner, late 19th century Austrian, either brookner's 5th or Brooklyn's 8th, we heard Brooklyn's 5th with the Cleveland orchestra, a week before the lockdowns in 2020, we flew to Cleveland for that, and we met in Chicago for this and we were both just transfixed. I have an interesting thing to report, however, about that evening, and it was a magnificent magnificent evening. People just stood up and cheered for 5 minutes after the concert. At least 5 minutes. It was one piece just that it's an hour and a half symphony. Brooklyn's 8th. If you try it, you won't love it the first time, probably. But by the tenth time it'll start to touch your heart. But not everybody's. It is what it is. So listen to this. In this great orchestra, there were sections, right? Viola, violin, woodwinds, brass, trumpets, trombones, horns, right, all that are sections. So one section is the bass players. When they were 8, sometimes there were 7, sometimes 6, but this was a full brook near demands a lot of musicians. Every one of the bass players wore a mask. There was no other section of the orchestra where everybody wore a mask, and only a handful of any of the other members of the orchestra certainly the conductor didn't. Why did they do that? And they were almost all young. I have no idea, but I have to tell you it was depressing. In an otherwise luminous evening, all I had was contempt for the members of the base section of the Chicago symphony orchestra..

"The angels winning the World Series. Actually, that's more likely. An increasing number of people who have undergone gender transitional procedures are voicing regret for their choices with many saying they feel they were influenced into making drastic choices. Without proper counseling, shape shifter says he even dreams about having a penis while before his first transition he would dream about having a vagina. You got that one? Oh, see it to see it. Oh yeah, so he's one who regrets. He regrets right. A 32 year old D transition or from Massachusetts going by shapeshifter, that's it. Says he was brainwashed into removing his penis by staff at Fenway health. And the Philadelphia center for transgender surgery, Philadelphia, what a shock God you have a sick city, my dear Friends in Philadelphia. Who didn't warn him of the negative effects of surgery because it was bad for business. I will never be able to get my penis back which is extremely traumatic for me. That's right. The bastards who made it possible for you. I hate them. 26 year old from the United Kingdom being Sam said she regrets the transition to undertook a 21. She said she made the decision to transition after a mere two hour counseling session. Both Democrat and your voting for hundreds of thousands of more young people transitioning. What a beautiful America. The Democrats and the rest of the left have made. It's about a sad as it gets, my Friends. We used to export beautiful values for all of our history. I'm Dennis prager, we shall return. The Dennis prager show. Hi, everybody. Welcome to the Dennis prager show. It's good to be back. Where was I? Started in LA went to Orlando, then Atlanta. Then Philadelphia then Pittsburgh then Chicago. Then Philadelphia, again, then drove to Vermont from Philadelphia, gave a speech. Was it yesterday? No, the day before flew back yesterday last night. Guy was kicked off the plane for rowdiness. First time I've had that, I think the plane actually went back to the gate. It was Vermont, by the way, guess who I was seated to seats from. Bernie Sanders. Yeah. Yep. That is hilarious. You know, I tell you I was telling my wife during the time because we were in first class, he was in first class right across from us. He was wearing a mask, in fact he wore three different masks. I don't know exactly why, but so I was wondering, was he wearing a mask to remain anonymous or because he believes in it. I think he believes in it because even in the front row where no one would see him because he was at the window. He kept the he wore his mask. It's fitting, isn't it that Bernie Sanders would be wearing a mask? Anyway, but I did think I said to my wife. Why don't I just walk over and say, sir, you don't know me, but I am somewhat prominent conservative and I would love a selfie with you. But I didn't want to bother him. That would have been fun, actually, to put that up. Bernie and I. So that's funny. Sean said to me, I have no desire to go viral. Do I? That would go viral. I agree with you. Then he'd wonder, what is somebody on his staff would say, why did you pose with this guy? Yeah. So.
Report Reveals Sharp Rise in Transgender Young People
"A report by the University of California, Los Angeles, UCLA published this year found that 300,000 U.S. children age between 13 and 17 identified as transgender in 2020. Oh my God. I Bolden this and yet I didn't assimilate it into my heart. 300,000. 300,000 sad families. 300,000. I mean, wow. I didn't realize the number was that high. It's doubled in the last two years. No, excuse me, 5 years, since 2017. Doubled. You don't think this is entirely influenced by media? By lost kids, who think they'll be popular or are they will stand out or they will solve other problems that they have growing up is difficult. Adolescence has always been difficult. But this is the first time in recorded history that hundreds of thousands of adolescents have thought that the solution to adolescent angst is to cut your genitalia off.
Assessing the Biden Damage
"Staggering destructive disservice that Joe Biden did to this country in the western world and to the young people of America in particular celebrating a young person quote unquote transitioning. It was one thing, as I said, will you tolerate people who are different, understood? You certainly don't persecute. But to celebrate as president of the United States, this will go down in history. Once this age of hysteria and mania passes, and it's passing in Europe, by the way, Spain, Sweden, Britain, those are the ones I remember. There are many more. They're all a Finland, they're all basically stopping this stuff with young people. Joe Biden and the Democrats of the United States celebrated. At this at this time in the world, the United States is the producer of the worst ideas. The exporter of the worst ideas. As some one who has loved this country all his life because of all the good it is done, I just have to acknowledge all the bad it is doing. I am not a blind fan. Of my country. I am a sighted fan of my country.
Experts Alarmed by Trans TikTok Star's Popularity Bump
"Experts alarmed by trans TikTok star Dylan Mulvaney's fan base bump. Child care experts are expressing alarm over transgender TikToker Dylan Mulvaney's popularity, bump. After her White House debut, saying social media is driving a spike in teens seeking sex change procedures. Why do you think that there is this vast increase in something that was virtually unknown just a few years ago? Do you think it's because they are more young people in touch with their true self? I'm really not a boy. I'm really not a girl. I would like my genitalia cut off. I would like my breast cut off. You think this is normal? You think this is healthy? What do you think this is driven? By a lost societies, social media. Specifically, the left. Which ruins everything it touches, including young people. Clinician same Mulvaney sit down time with president Joe Biden has raised the social media sensations profile, extending her reach and likely influencing teenage fans who may themselves be questioning their own gender identity.

"So the president of the United States was interviewed by a man who is transgender to identify as a woman. Let me make it clear a man can not become a woman. It is not possible. Can look like a woman, take a woman's name, dress like a woman, all of that is possible. And I divide in this arena. Those who deny that there are only men and women in the human species, those whether they are transgender or they are cisgender as they now say. They, they are the problem, the people who are telling children, there's no boys and girls, you'll decide, you might be both. You might be neither. You can change, they are bringing down the civilization. The individual person who quietly is so. It'll ease with his or her sex and wants to be perceived as a member of the other sex. That's another matter. But the celebration of this is a matter for all of us. Joe Biden, who was a contemptible human being and is doing everything he can to ruin America. And has been somewhat successful. We'll see how successful in two weeks. Decided to have a man transitioning to identify as a woman interview him..
Truth Is Not a Left Wing Value
"Tucker Carlson played left wing media people, speaking about how perfectly coherent John fetterman is. They lied. They just lied, but they don't care that they lie, and the reason that they don't care that they lie is that truth is not a left wing value. The victory of the left is infinitely more morally significant than truth. Therefore, leftist victories are always based on lies. Like the Russian collusion with the Trump campaign. Wait till it comes out how much they lied about the COVID. One of the greatest gigantic lies in an American history. The redefining of the term vaccination. Did you know that? It's been redefined now twice. That means it's had three definitions in the last few years. Well, it doesn't really mean protect it means it improves your chances of survival. It doesn't mean I'm immunized. Immunized doesn't mean that it works with everybody. Really?
The Unbridgeable Gap Between the Left and the Right
"Now do you know what I mean when I say that there's an unbridgeable gap between the left and the right? Because we don't believe we know that the left is destroying this country. And they believe the Republicans are destroying the country. But do you know that not a single example was given in a single comment by any of these people? I have a list in a column that I wrote of 20 institutions. That the left is destroying. I'd like to know what are the Republicans destroying? How will they destroy democracy? But that's all they read. They read The New York Times, so they believe that the Republicans are destroying democracy, and that if they win, it's over. That Donald Trump was a fascist. But Donald Trump governed for four years and the fascism didn't seem to take root in this country from the right. That the use of the FBI and other government agencies to suppress dissent is entirely done by the left. Repeat. The suppression of free speech using American institutions, government institutions is entirely done by the left. And the Republicans are the threat to democracy.
Who Is the Real Threat to Democracy?
"Reading as I tell you all the time I always read comments nearly always. Must the article is just not here or there. It's just something I want for information. And a piece with David Brooks wrote a piece in The New York Times. David Brooks was once a conservative and I don't say this is a criticism. I would say he is now a liberal, not a leftist. He's rooting for the Democratic Party to the best of my knowledge. But he wrote about how the left is ruining the Democratic Party. After the after writing about how wonderful Joe Biden's policies have been, he wrote, however, there is this even say woke, I don't think. Leadership like on the transgender issue and they're losing the average American, which is, I believe, true, but we'll find out, obviously, in two weeks, every comment that I read, I mean, I didn't read 3000, but I read them in terms of popularity. So the most, every one of the most popular column of the most comments. Were about how the Republicans are a threat to this democracy.
Eric Welcomes Che Ahn, Hero in the Faith, To the Show
"I am excited to have in the studio with me right now a friend, an ally, a brother in the faith. My friend pastor che on all the way from California. Welcome to New York City. Well, thanks one and honor to be here. It's an honor to have you. I really love you and I look up to you because you're a hero in the faith because you have stood up. I'm always talking about how our religious liberties are under attack. And the fact that you went through this. Now I want to talk about your book, the book is called turning our nation back to God through historic revival. There's a forward by the same guy who wrote Bond hoffer. I don't know how you pulled it off to get that guy because he lives in a cave in Vermont or something. But Eric metaxas wrote the forward. The book is turning our nation back to God, doctor che on ahn. But the background of this is I keep saying this. We are in extraordinary Dire Straits right now in this nation. We need revival, but before we get into that, tell briefly what you went through because I want people to know my Friends have been through health, folks. This is unbelievable. It's happening in this country and you need to participate in that battle however you can. So che, what happened? Well, I just need to go back to my father, because my father was born in Pyongyang. So on my father's side, they all grew up in what is now common as North Korea. And he was a pastor, and he got arrested, and the reason why he was arrested is because the calmness know that Christian pastors are going to be a descending voice. And so they canceled him. They locked him up.

Keep the Locker Room Talk to Yourself
"I hope I don't get fired off of this radio, but I feel like I have to keep telling the truth because people are afraid to say this stuff that I'm saying. And if nobody's going to say this stuff, then, you know, what are we doing? We were just in a break that we were talking about, you know, players being gay in the locker room. And I'm comparing this to the young women that have to be these young girls that have to be exposed. 14 year old girls, they have to be exposed to a transgender boy, biological boy coming into the locker room. And they feel uncomfortable. It's not abnormal for them to feel uncomfortable. Because it ain't like the boy come up and say, you know what? I'm a girl. I mean, I feel like a girl and I'm also attracted to men. So hey, you guys have looked out. It's like the dude coming in there. You know, he may get aroused by these women. These young girls. As they're fair, no kids should be exposed to genitalia from the opposite sex. Especially outside of terror, you know, they can't control it. They should not be exposed to male genitalia at a 14 year old. How do you know the parents are like, I don't want her to see her put a penis look like? And a little kid going in there, looking at women naked. Come on, man. And the kid may not be weird, but can you understand how young women may feel weird about that? And that's the reason why I'm talking about the locker room thing. I don't care what y'all saying, man. Not one man want to know that his partner in the locker room, you know, it's thinking dirty thoughts about him.
"vermont" Discussed on The Officer Tatum Show
"This is the officer Tatum show. On the Salem news channel on the Salem podcast network and right here right now. I'm back to the children of our society. And we've talked about the parenting. We've talked about policing, police officers getting killed by these lunatics and last night I was on the news speaking about how our society has failed police officers by not giving them the options or giving ability to be equipped, demeaning them, demoralizing them. They're short staffed and it's contributing to the delinquency against police officers is contributing to the hatred when politicians come out and say cops are just out here killing people for no reason. They are here just murdering black people unarmed black men they showed nothing but a negative light of police that creates an increased hatred and violence and perpetual propensity of violence towards police officers. And that's why these things are happening, but I want to continue to talk about our youth. Because this story I was reading and it was number one on my stack when I was studying for the show. It was number one and then the policing took president when I started reading about some of these police shootings, but this was the very next story that compelled me and angered me earlier this morning. And Randolph Vermont, you have these young girls who have come out, young girl named Blake Allen and her teammates are outspoken about a biological boy going into the young girl's locker room. So this boy is now identifying as a girl. Wants to play volleyball and you have young women who are in a locker room and this is where the complaint started, they are in the locker room, they're getting dressed and getting undressed in this person walks in and they feel incredibly uncomfortable and one of the girls reported that this dude, this boy that now want to identify as a girl, is now looking at naked young girls in the locker room. I mean, she can see that his eyes and his attention is going to these young girls. This is where you, this is where it makes me mad. Because when you go through and read it, the district don't care. The district is now looking at the young girls. They're the problem. Because they're not inclusive enough. The guy has a wing. He got a wing. Why would young girls feel comfortable with this boy in there putting this junk out? I just don't understand. You know, it gets creepy, it gets stupid, it gets weird. I'm sick of it. Just like when they were when they had these football players that say, listen, let me just explain like this. When you play football, if you gay, don't say nothing. You should shut your mouth if you're in a mail locker room and you gay. Why should you shut your mouth, Brandon? Because you got other men in that naked bro, you ain't attracted to these men? And how uncomfortable would I feel knowing to my brother next to me looking at my stuff when I'm changing my clothes and I'm thinking, look, he thinking about sleeping with me. He ain't just like the other boys popping each other with the child having fun. Homeboy looking in my Johnson. 'cause he's intrigued. That's a problem, bro, we're supposed to be playing football together. That's just like if you had just like if you had a girl, this is like I went into a softball locker room. And I'm like, no, I'm totally fine with these naked women in front of me. Come on, man. You think these women ain't gonna feel uncomfortable? Ain't no way in the world that I say I wasn't attracted to him. And I'm in the locker room and they make it every day. But you know the world want to be so soft and wimpish that we can't keep it real until the truth. If you like me and just keep it to yourself bro when you in locker room, just like when young women, you like women, you attracted to young women. Keep it to yourself. Because nobody want to feel uncomfortable in the locker room getting naked because they think you're looking at them. It's the same thing with trans kids. The kid running there with a penis. And they went, what is she supposed to do? When he pull his drawers off, just like the girls are when they get into taking a shower, he got a Johnson. While the young girls have to be exposed to that. Now, let me just tell you this. Now, if he did not identify as a girl, and he pulled his pants down, he would be going to jail. That'll be steadily sexual harassment. That'll be exposing, you know, exposing yourself indecent exposure. But just because you identify as a girl, you can pull your pants down and the girl is supposed to feel like that that's totally fine. They go in too far, it's one person, have them change in another locker room. And he could join the team outside of them getting naked. Because, you know, it's such an ambiguous situation because just because you trans don't mean you don't like women. The little boy can say, I identify as a girl, but I still like girls. And he's in heaven. He's in a locker room full of naked girls. And he's still like geralt just because he traded on me, they don't like girls. You need to, we need to get that stuff out of the locker room, man. If you're confused about your sexuality, get him another locker room to change, and then y'all can go play volleyball as a team. If you just insist, but I'm sick of it, man, parents are sick of this stuff. And you know, it's funny because a part of me is like, man, should I be saying this? But in reality, it's like, why can't we be honest about how we feel about these things? I know I'm not the only one talking about this.

Crime and Punishment
"I saw a video just recently of a guy who was kidnapped and he was fear. He was kidnapping people and that's how he was making money on social media. He was acting like he was an entrepreneur, but him and his friends were kidnapping people. It was just in Africa somewhere. He was kidnapping people, and then he was extraordinary. And then that's how he was making money. But when they called him, they had him out there in the middle of the street in his underwear. With handcuffs on his hands, and I just looking at him on his knees, the whimpering, they probably was beating him. He was getting some lashes. And you know, nowadays, and I'm not, I'm not trying to dig and promote violence in it like that. I'm just saying, what are we doing ain't working clearly? You get the kids after they go to jail and they have a good time. They go up in there and they, they join the game, they have a little bit of protection. They are. Maybe if they don't join the game and get raped in there and that just what it is. But for the most part, they go to these prisons and they get three hots and a cot. They finally put money in their books. They get little meals and they get to read. They become Muslim and all this other stuff they do in jail. They ain't that ain't that hard for some people to do a couple years. It ain't that hard. That's why residency is that high, 'cause clearly when they go to jail, it's not they ain't feeling the pressure. Some of these countries man, they beat you. You get, oh, you get exposed openly. I remember when our countries do the firing squad. You know, now we don't want to let your chairs too much. Oh, no, corporation. No, death penalty is too much. Just let them live off taxpayer dollar for the rest of their life. When they mutilated somebody, we're afraid to give them the death penalty. Man, put these people to death and quit playing.
Young People, Bad Behavior, And Fatherlessness
"I was having a conversation with my Friends today and he was telling me how, you know, it had been hit from him that his kid was having a problem because he has a relationship, you know, his kid is out of state, you know, because they let these women move out of the state and that's totally fine. They can just move out of the state because they want a better life for themselves. They don't care about the kids. They move out of state. And they let them do it. So anyway, this girl that moved out the state, I had the same situation, my son, mom, she moved out of state. But it was being hidden from him that his kid was having behavioral problems at school. And once it was revealed, it's like, you know, it's crazy. It's crazy how these things happen. Because what people don't talk about is the longing for young men to be in their father's lives is tremendously important. And you know, like I said, some of these mamas, they don't care. And of course, don't care either for the most part. They don't care. And these young boys act a fool when they with their mama. And then when they come with that dance or shocked, I know some dads out here listening to me, you know what I'm talking about. It's there's things that my son has been doing and I have begin reports on and feedback on, literally this mama calling me crying 'cause he out of control. And I can't believe it. I can't believe it. I just know where my son is acting like that. When my son is with me, he's good kid. He don't get in trouble. You don't do nothing else things. But you know why? There's a difference between dad and dad because you have to have structure. These kids don't respect these single moms. They don't respect them. They treat them like they're a little buddies and Friends. And at the end of the day, they lose a tremendous amount of respect, and they begin to act out. It's funny that it happens. It's not funny. It's kind of sad, but I wish that society would understand this. It is very important for these young people to have their fathers in their lives.
15-Year-old Suspect in Custody in Shooting in Raleigh
"Gunmen killed at least 5 people in an off duty officer doing their rampage in Riley, North Carolina. These stories continue to persist. Now, I don't know what weapon was used. I don't see a weapon presented in the article that I have, probably because he may not have used a rifle. I believe when they use rifles or weapons of those natures, you hear it all the time because they're pushing a particular agenda. Now I don't know the forgotten man help me on this. You can text me if I'm wrong. But it doesn't appear that they've disclosed what type of weapon is 15 year old was using. However, he decided to open fire, shooting and killing multiple people, 29 year old, a 16 year old, a 51 year old, 49 year old and a 35 year old. And, you know, the questions that arise is how do we stop this from happening? Gun control and my opinion isn't the solution to the problem. Because they're going to just mow you that will drive over you. I'll pull out a knife and start stabbing and killing people and want killing one person is enough. That's too much. Because if that one person is your dad, you're not going to say, well, he at least didn't kill 15 people. He only killed one, but he killed your father. He killed your mother, your child. One senseless death is too many. How do we stop these things from happening? Ladies and gentlemen, you can't catch it on the back end. You can't say it can't just be enough to say if you kill 15 people you go to jail. That's not going to deter anybody because they don't care about living. So they definitely don't care about going to prison forever. And some of them kill themselves or they get into an altercation with police they die and they move on. With no consequences to know, you know, they don't care. So you can't catch it on the back end and think that's a solution to the problem. You can't say, oh, if we ban guns, it means too many guns out there. You ain't gonna stop it. You ain't gonna stop it from getting guns. I don't care how hard you think you make it. It don't matter. If the kid gets access to a gun two years later, he gonna commence to shooting people.
"vermont" Discussed on The Gravel Ride. A cycling podcast
"Hello and welcome to in the dirt from the gravel. Ride podcast in your host craig dalton and i'm joined by my co host. Randall jacobs randall. How are you. I'm doing well. Craig good to see you how you doing good. It's been a while since we've been on the mike indeed in we've had a lot to catch up on so excited to do. So what have you been out so of gun back in the saddle. After several months off. I should say maybe one ride a month casual ride and it's been great. The time off was great. I had a big move across the country and get settled and so on been doing a lotta trail running and it really brought a bath. I longer harder ride. That i did really just reminded me of why. I love this experience. Why i love riding a bicycle through the environment and exploring and so on and connecting with people. And they'll say that was a really a- a wonderful thing. I don't feel dating back on the bike just like. How does your body feel when you've been off for a while. It took me about ten brevity being sick so it's many years of muscle memory. I wasn't feeling super strong or anything. But i was like the motor was turning and the fact that i've been trail running. I helped his well so i still had the cardiovascular fitness yet. And you had some pressure that because you'd signed up for an event with your brother in law right those no pressure there. My brother-in-law got got us passes to vermont. And we're doing the shorter one. So i think it was forty eight miles or so and four thousand or so feet of climbing but i was planning on writing with him the whole time so i knew that like i could just kinda at at at that sort of easier pace that things would be good and yeah i actually. That was the longest ride done in quite some time when i did it and wasn't bad at all honestly. I probably could have done a long one granted at a very slow pace. I wouldn't have been competitive. I have not been over to rooted vermont. I've heard good things. What was your experience like. So i heard that the longer course had more technical terrain on it. These shorter course i would have done on. Seven hundred with the exception of say the last little single-track section at the end. Where i think. Even then i would have been able to ride it fine and it would have been worth for the efficiency everywhere else. There are a couple of spots where high speed dirt road descent. Where a little bit more volume would be nice. But if i was trying to be competitive for that course probably seven hundred thirty seven hundred thirty two and maybe some tire inserts to protect against impact rem impacts in pinch flats and things like that. How do brother-in-law days..

"vermont" Discussed on Scientific Sense
"We do and we act on those and i think that's a lot of what's going on your this probably some explicit bias but what we found was that these disparities exist. There are just one or two bad apples in departments. This is prevalent behavior across all officers in depart most officers in departments. Yeah i you know. I think somehow this type of data needs to be presented. explained in a systematic way. Right you know if if people are willing and perceptive to inflammation Read inflammation structured and and it provided a to them to to internalize. I think i think we can make a difference but it is it too that we don't really have a process like that debate. A new versatile. There's still national database on traffic stops but there are a number of many many states do studies on these and north carolina's one. St who has a lot of data. That i know very well and i followed the process. There has been very similar to what we've experienced in vermont. Which is that. There is enormous resistance to hearing these results in with the police will just say to us as the data flawed. We're not racist. You're calling us racist. And they reject the data out. So we're now at a stage in vermont where a couple of agencies have really taken the data seriously made some progress most have not and But now it has happened. We we present developed a methodology that is pretty straightforward that allows community groups to easily understand our results in other words release sophisticated Econometric techniques although we we've done that in some separate work and what we find out or community groups are coming to us and asking us to explain results. Ramat asking us present city councils and select words. They now are holding their police departments accountable but the resistance of the police is something that i can could not have imagined. I always felt like the date of were sufficient to change people's minds in. That's not at all what's happened. It's been an uphill battle all the way the difference in vermont is that we have a fairly thoughtful legislature and so the legislature has enacted a lot of policies in response to our Has the language problem right last. Four years have been Revealing for a lot of people in the us from many different directions and boom racism As has got a lot of play but Humid saw racers if you are human you. Us served you are not racist is highly unlikely as you mentioned before the grew up in klein's even for modern what caused the dunbar's number is one fifty meeting when we get over one fifty in drew We start to fight against each other. They don't you know is really difficult for humans to have a scope of more than hundred fifty really close connections And so if you could take extrapolate that saw fundamentally racist. It's a monthly flat tooling problem and so.
