#101: Practical Philosophy of Language: Sex/Gender Part II
"The first universal practical aspect in the philosophy of language of all meaning change is number one in results from TOA logical adjective act of a will to power not from reason nausea derive from sense. Experience reasoning does not care. What specific premises Axioms or whatever assumptions are used to begin to begin. One's reasoning reasoning is the best process or methodology for preserving truth however however one defines truth not forgetting now of truth if one starts with true premises axioms are sumptious. Sound reasoning will preserve that throught route and valid reasoning will assure it is impossible for the premises to be to the conclusion false however reason cannot guarantee one is starting to reasoning process with throat. Nothing to reality or sense. Experience requires an axiom premise or sump Shen tweeting water as a person if one believes water needs to be treated as a person for whatever reasons one one believes this this set or context of beliefs gives one the toll Or normative go of having a use in use of the word water be the same as the use and use for this or usefulness fairness of the word person within that context or set of beliefs the ultimate goal is to give water the same power as a person in the reasoning if this act of will has the power violence upon others especially if it has a monopoly on violence such as law. Does this act of will will be compelled upon others to force them to have the same belief in water is a person in order to achieve technological or normative goes goes for the change in meaning for example the argument for treating water she person under the law usually begins with the premises. That water is necessary. Hey for all persons to live and to enjoy life and T- bundles. Impurity of water is being threatened by technological pollution of water does threatening human mid life. These premises can be derived directly from sense experience. However there are there are an uncountable number of conceptual options for for dealing with these empirical problems? One option is the TOA logical or normative go of treating water is a person under the law ethically or even pragnell pragmatically. This is a creative option. Does both aesthetically in normative normative pleasing but is not derived from sense experience but derived existential and conceptually in the same way in prior episodes. I pointed out that reason Ho holistically derives I am therefore I think and I think therefore I want more than just thinking his. I've come contemplated contemplate in these other episodes under other topics such as metaphysics epistemology at morality acceptance of of this creative option creates the law in the ethics in even the facts to justify itself and not the other way around. The conclusion inclusion supporting facts for treating Wa- waters a person are created by the act of will wanting water to be to be a person in the same way the any act of will created yes summarized in prior episodes an explanation of creation of this act of will or will to power is not substantive which we can speak with any within any language word game other than data intention will his. I've contemplated in these other episode say episodes even the simple act of will of raising my left arm at this precise moment cannot be explained empirically or conceptually in any way. It's an act of will or intentional act. Science can talk all at once about neurons and debris being activated the Dan that then activate electrical and chemical signals in nerves that extend into my arm but none of these explanations describe why or how I activated activated the neurons to begin this process of raising my left arm northern nature of this I this is that started this process of raising my hand and in the next episode I will cover the second aspect. UNIVERSO aspect of flossy of language in practice. Defect resulting change in meaning does not embody physical or metaphysical foreknowledge and these aspects. When I say technological I use it to include clued normative has discussed in prior episodes in philosophy of language? Language is a social construct based on behavior. Did that is goal oriented.

The last man standing in the thirty person match was awarded a guaranteed title shot at the biggest pay per view of the year. Wrestlemainia after fifty seven minutes. Only two of the thirty wrestlers remained Chris Ben Wa and the big show at five eleven and seven feet respectively. They were two wrestlers on distinctly opposite sides of the spectrum. How in the world was Ben? Wa going to manage to force this monster over the top rope as if to answer that very question. Big Show easily plucked Benoi Office feet and hoisted him into the air ready to launch him like a lawn Dart but before he could throw him Ben Wa wrapped his arms and legs around the big show's head and shoulders hanging on for dear life. The giants set him down on the other side of the ring punching his chest trying to force him to let go but Benoi just squeezed tighter cutting off. The big shows air. Eventually he leveraged the giants own weight to pull him over the top rope. He flipped onto the apron and tumbled down to the ground eliminated. He done it. He'd beaten the odds and slain goliath now Crispin Wa was going to Wrestlemainia to fight for the title. He didn't realize at the time but this would be his last singles heavyweight championship run with the wwe. He'd be dead before his next title shot.

Let us know how we're doing reach out on facebook and Instagram podcast and twitter at podcast network? This is our conclusion episode on professional wrestler. Chris Ben Walk last week. We followed his rise in the world of wrestling from Stu Hart's Dungeon to Ted Turner's WCW. And finally Vince McMahon's wwe today will cover Benoit's return to the ring and his final years with the W W we'll look at the events that led up the Benoit family tragedy in June of two thousand seven and how it impacted the world of professional wrestling. As a whole Chris Ben was year away from wrestling in two thousand one and two thousand two was one of the darkest times of his life and it had very little to do with the injury itself or the pain from his spine surgery. It was the torment of knowing that the business was carrying on without him as we covered last week. The Guy couldn't even stand to take a two week vacation when he worked for new Japan. Now he'd been forced to the sidelines for twelve months during his rehab. He sank into a deep depression. Ben Wa turned to heavy pain medication use for the first time in his career pushing his body to recover as quickly as possible. He was irritable with his family. Lashing out at them. It all put a huge amount of strain on Benoit's marriage normally Nancy Benoit's was the perfect counterpart to her husband's wrestling obsession. She'd worked in the business herself as a ring. Valet working under the ring. Name woman not only to understand the realities of life on the road. She understood the business itself. Better than most wrestlers wives in fact their entire relationship was born out of a wrestling storyline in one thousand. Nine hundred ninety six. Nancy was married to wrestler Kevin Sullivan. Who was also the WCW booker in an attempt to generate some heat? He instructed Nancy to start spending more time with Chris Ben Wa in real life. He hoped gossip about their relationship would reach the wrestling rags and this quote unquote real life. Affair could spark an epic in ring feud on the only problem was no one really noticed or cared. The smart marks who actually were paying attention saw Nancy Benoit's fake affair as an obvious ploy in refuse to play into Sullivan's game for one thing. Ben Wa was a pretty boring guy outside of the ring he just wasn't the type to suddenly strike up an affair with someone like Nancy unless someone told him he had to second. It's not like Nancy and Kevin Sullivan were storybook couple. Allegedly Sullivan was notoriously abusive towards Nancy and had engaged in plenty of affairs himself. At the time. This was all happening. He was rumored to be sleeping with his own valet. Jacqueline so if Nancy really was cheating with Ben Wa good for her but like so many things in Chris. Benoit's life the line between what was real and what was K FEHB eventually blurred after several months of Sullivan. Pushing them together. The pair really did fall for each other in nineteen ninety-seven. Nancy ended her marriage with Sullivan and got engaged. Ben Wa the guys in the locker room joked that in his search for a new angle Kevin Sullivan had essentially booked his own divorce around this same time. Nancy retired from wrestling. In February of two thousand she gave birth to Benoit's son Daniel and from that point they basically had a long distance marriage. Nancy stayed home with the baby while Ben Wall was on the road. That is until the summer of two thousand one when he ruptured a cervical. Vertebra and had to take time off now. Not only was he home all the time. He was depressed and Sullen. They fought constantly with their eighteen month. Old Son watching from the sidelines. Eventually Nancy filed for divorce on the grounds of cruel treatment. She also filed a restraining order against him. She didn't accuse him of physical violence but alleged that he destroyed furniture and other inanimate objects during their arguments she said he would fly into rages seemingly unprovoked. However Nancy later dropped the divorce paperwork and withdrew the restraining order. They got back together. She must have seen a change in her husband and it was probably related to his. Wwe comeback. Because Chris Benoit's was finally getting his title shot. Ben Watt was an undeniably talented wrestler. Wwe superstar Chris. Jericho said Ben Wa was the Michael Jordan or Wayne Gretzky of his profession. He was that good. He influenced many many wrestlers all around the world and change the style of pro wrestling in this country. He was a fan favourite. Always making the top ten matches of the year list. He was a hard worker in the ring. Always making his opponents look good and he was a consummate professional never missing a match or showing up unable to work and yet he toiled away in the mid card for two decades. He was just seen as too small to be a champ. The only time he'd been given a heavyweight title shot was as a last ditch effort from WCW to keep him from walking out the door and he turned it down fed up with the lot of them. He'd hoped that he would be given a fair shake in. Wwe BUT VINCE. Mcmahon was just as size conscious in the late eighties McMahon and refuse to hire anyone who is shorter than he was six one but was eventually forced to retract that stipulation to widen his talent. Google still he held cruiserweights in much lower esteem. Treating them as bi level guys ratings. Were down especially among diehard fans in management. Knew THAT BIN. Wa was a smart Mark Darling. So at the end of two thousand and three they made the call then. Wa was finally getting pushed to the top of the card author. Matthew Randazzo described the decision. His Book Ring of Hell saying it would be Benoit's medal for long service for working injured countless times for always being a loyal hardworking and obedient employee. Ben Was K- fade. Fueled Prophecy had finally come true. His road to Wrestlemainia started in Philadelphia Pennsylvania at the two thousand four royal rumble pay per view. This is always one of the more anticipated and auspicious events of the year. A thirty person match with a unique elimination stipulation. There are no pin falls or submissions. Everyone has to be tossed over the top rope on. This gives big guys a huge advantage and make smaller wrestlers like Benoi easy targets. And they don't all start in the ring at once. Every ninety seconds a new wrestler joins the fray with this means that the higher your entry number the less time you have to spend fighting and the last man standing the one who can outlast. His twenty nine fellow competitors is awarded guaranteed shot at the world heavyweight championship Wrestlemainia. But Vince McMahon wasn't ready to just hand been Wa- his title shot. He was still going to make him work for it. He named Ben Wa as entrant number. One Ben Wall was going to have to beat every other man in that ring to prove himself to the fans the royal rumble match was the night's main event when the Canadian Crippling Chris. Benoit's stock down to the ring the crowd was primed and rowdy. Probably a little drunk. They had no idea they were about to watch. History be made man after man charged down the ramp and into the match. A one by one. They all win over the top rope after almost an hour. Ben Wall was one of two men left standing in the ring. Ben Wa and the big show David and Goliath when the seven foot tall big show easily scooped. Benoi into the air. The crippling wrapped his arms and legs around the giant's neck. He squeezed and squeezed eventually forcing his giant opponent. Over the top rope. A Guillotine choke hold. The big show tumbled out of the Ring Ben. Wa was the last man standing. The referee raised his right arm in victory. Not only did Ben Wa win. But he'd broken the record for the longest amount of time spent in the royal rumble match lasting one hour. One Minute thirty five seconds. One of the commentators declared Chris Benoit has worked his ass off for nineteen years in the day has come. He earned it. You GotTa give the man credit you gotta respect what he did unfortunately for Ben Wa. His title reign would culminate in another slap in face from wwe management and it would set him on a path toward ruin coming up.

Benoi after winning the royal rumble in January. He was on the road to Wrestlemainia throughout February and March Been Wa was given weekly Primetime. Promos stoking the fires of his upcoming title match with the current heavyweight champion triple h but there was some dispute backstage about whether or not crispin while really had what it took to be a main event. Draw sure he had the loyalty of die hard wrestling fans. But what about the general public? Did they even know who the cripple was? So in the weeks leading up to Wrestlemania Vince McMahon decided to change the direction of the storyline. Instead of just fighting triple h than Wa would also face the heartbreak kid Shawn Michaels in a triple threat match. Now there were a few issues with his changeup first of all Shawn Michaels and triple h had just fought for the heavyweight title in January at the same pay per view. Benoit won his own title shot so to the fans it felt like a match they'd already seen but more importantly it made zero sense to the storyline. Shawn Michaels and triple H had over a decade of storyline. By that point they team together then turned on each other than retained and turn on each other again. They were like the wrestling equivalent of a soap operas. Will they won't they? They're long storied. History with each other suddenly became the focus of the promos. Wa became the third wheel in his own championship match so going into Wrestlemainia twenty on march fourteenth. Two Thousand Four. The fans weren't sure what to expect. They knew they wanted triple. H to lose but there was division in the audience over who they wanted to win pretty boy veteran Shawn Michaels or the grizzled worker. Chris Benoit's in line with the promos triple H and Shawn. Michaels went after each other when the match started ignoring Benoi and literally pushing him away from their scrum but been Wa refused to be ignored when Shawn Michaels fell in the center of the ring. Ben Walked pounced locking in his signature. Cripple Cross face submission hold but before he could make. Michael's tap triple h broke the two men apart for twenty three minutes. The men scrapped in worked halfway through the battle Ben Watson Shawn Michaels face first into the top turnbuckle and smacked his forehead on the ring. Post IT SPLIT. Open the skin above his left eye and he started to bleed profusely soon. All three men were streaked with red then Shawn Michaels and triple h momentarily. Rekindled their partnership. They double teamed Benoi working together to body slam him into one of the announcers tables. They left Ben in a broken heap on top of the destroyed table then returned to the ring. Just the two of them exactly how they wanted but then wall wasn't done yet. When triple h finally pinned Shawn michaels both of them bloody and exhausted Ben. Wa leaped back into the ring and broke up the pin fall. The crowd exploded in cheers chanting his name. The commentator expressed his disbelief to the. Emt's throw him in the ring. How did he get up while? Michaels lay incapacitated on the Mat. Ben Watt twisted triple h into a sharp shooter. The first submission hold he learned in Stu. Hart's Dungeon fifteen years before then he held on for dear life as triple h flopped like a Marlin writhing in agony. The crowd started to chant. Tap TAP. Tap SEAN. Michael suddenly came back to life kicking Benoit Square in the face. Breaking the submission hold. He tried to pin the flattened. Benoi but the crippling mustard the last bit of strength in kicked out. Seventeen thousand fans in Madison Square Garden erupted in praise. They urged demand shouting Ben Wa Ben Wa when michaels charged at him. Ben Wa- flip the bloodied veteran out of the ring entirely. Then he set his sights on triple H. He locked in another submission. Hold the crippled cross. Face Benoit's signature move. He viciously twisted triple h his arm refusing to let go then finally triple h tapped out then. Wall was the new heavyweight champion. Confetti rained from the sky as Ben y held the title in his blood smeared hands every fan and Madison Square Garden was on their feet celebrating along with him his best friend and fellow wrestler Eddie. Guerrero joined him in the ring. Guerrero was carrying his own belt that night. The two men had proven to the world together. That cruiserweights could hold their own at the top of the car but it was all over just as soon as it started according to Matthew Randazzo head of creative. Stephanie McMahon said of his championship. This isn't going to last. He isn't like Sean. The guys don't want to be him. And the girls don't WanNa sleep with him. After only five months been wall was forced to surrender the title at Summer Slam. Two Thousand Four. He lost to a young hotshot wrestler twenty four year. Old Randy Orton even worse. The match was in Toronto. Ben Wa lost his first major title in front of a hometown crowd. That all wanted him to win. It only added insult to injury and he never got another run at the heavyweight championship again. The next few years brought more disaster for Ben Wa on November thirteenth. Two Thousand Five ben was best friend. Guerrero was out on the road. In Minneapolis Minnesota. He'd scheduled a wakeup call for seven. Am but he didn't respond hotel security knocked on the door. No answer his nephew and fellow. Wrestler Chabot Guerrero eventually convinced security to open the door. They discovered Eddie on the bathroom floor. He was holding his toothbrush still with toothpaste on it. He died of a heart attack. Allegedly caused by years of prolonged steroid use like Ben Wa. Eddie felt pressured because of his smaller stature. Who only five foot eight. He juiced up to bulk muscle mass and eventually his heart couldn't take anymore two days after his death on November fifteenth the wwe held a tribute. Show for Eddie Guerrero on Monday night. Raw several wrestlers spoke about Eddie as a man and as a wrestler including Crispin Wa wa was usually so stoic so introverted. His friends called him Houdini for his ability to disappear in front of them but that night in front of the Camera Ben. Wa laid himself bear his said Eddie. Guerrero is my best friend. He was such a beautiful person such a kindhearted person. We've been up and down every mountain. He Chin every highway. He was the one friend that I had that I could go to Impor- my heart out to if I was going through something. He was the one guy that I could call and talk to in no that he'd understand and talk me out of it. We never left each other without telling each other that we loved each other and truly can say that I love Eddie Guerrero. I love you and I miss you. Then Vanua broke down into tears real heart wrenching sobs. That shook his whole body. He tried to keep speaking through his emotions but each word became harder to say than the last. Eventually it became too much and been wa literally walked off screen on the next Friday night. Smackdown men while wrestled against his now familiar foe triple H in a tribute match for Eddie. It was an emotional win. One that ended with a long embrace between the two fighters when they broke. Ben Wall that the crowd in chanting. Edie Edie Edie everyone who knew Crispin Wa said he was never the same after Eddie's death but it was only the first in a series of tragedies on January twenty eighth two thousand six Benoit's friend and mentor in New Japan. Wrestler named Black Cat also died of a heart attack. Black Cat was the new Japan Booker. Wenbin Wa was first coming up in the DOJO. Black Cat had booked. Waas career making matches against Yutian Thunder Lager. He was also the one who helped him break into the lucrative or seen in Mexico. Then just a few weeks after that. Another of Benoit's close friends died wrestler. Johnny grunge the pair both lived in Atlanta Georgia. When they weren't on the road they went on dates with their wives. Johnny had two young kids. Now fatherless who were playmates have been was son soon after. He mourned his former stampede. Tag Team Partner Biff Wellington as well as WCW wrestlers Sherri Martel. Mike Awesome and Bam Bam bigelow the quick succession of tragedies left been walk alone in rudderless his grief. It was around this time. The Benoit's started to display anxiety and paranoia. He told his father that he believed he was being followed. He mapped out thirty distinct routes between his house in the Jimmy worked at so that he could take different paths each day and avoid detection. His sister-in-law said they'd been Wa didn't like to drive the same car every day because it made him too easy to follow his father said in an interview. The chauffeur that used to drive him home from the airport at Time said Chris would tell him. Take a different route. I don't want anyone to follow me home. They had their son in lockdown school. So no one would kidnap him. They moved into this new house with large fencing all around and went out and got trained German shepherds to protect the house because people were after them. After Eddie Guerrero's death. Ben Watt started writing letters to him in heaven as a coping mechanism for his grief in one he described a dream he had about his parents being killed. He wrote Nancy and I were trying to get to her parents Daytona to save them because we felt that they were being taken next and these people after them were very powerful. High ranking people when we got to Daytona. It was too late. Her parents were gone too perished there could have been a few different causes of Benoit's increased paranoia as we said last week you regularly use steroids from about age. Fifteen the rush of testosterone from juicing can sometimes being tense to take the edge off many steroid users supplement with an anti anxiety. Drug like Valium xanax. However prolonged use of this medication can actually increase your overall anxiety in the long term patients can become dependent on the effects of anti anxiety medication when they stop taking it. They can feel hyper anxious even worse than before. They started the prescription because their brain has become dependent on the effect of the medication. In addition to intense paranoia Vanua had become verbally physically abusive towards his wife. Nancy the final months of their relationship. Where that of a deteriorating marriage allegedly? Nancy had reached her limit with Ben was steroid abuse. According to Matthew Randazzo. She repeatedly throughout his stash of steroids in the house while he was out on the road when he came home each time to discover what she'd done he became enraged six weeks before the murders. Nancy texted I will not accept this steroid induced rollercoaster ride of emotional abuse. You trying to say this is how you grew up watching your dad. Call your mom names and making her cry. No then what gives you the right. She said in a later message ignoring the problem or running away isn't going to help you face it. You need professional help. And only if you're fully honest about all of it however as much as Ben Wa was dealing with his steroid habit. Nancy was grappling with her own addictions. In addition to heavy drinking. Nancy was likely addicted to hydrocortisone. Also commonly known as Vicodin or Lore set on May thirtieth. Nancy was prescribed three hundred sixty pills of lor set by her family. Doctor Phil Astin by June twenty second. She consumed two hundred seventy eight of the three hundred sixty pills. That's roughly twelve pills per day. Assuming that she was the only one taking them. And that's a likely assumption because Ben Wa had a loss at prescription of his own from June eighth to June twenty second. He went through a prescription of one. Hundred Twenty pills roughly eight per day and it was in this Hayes. During the summer of two thousand seven that their fights only escalated friends. Started to notice bruises on Nancy for the first time. She accused her husband of locking her up in their house on June. Twenty first the day before her murder. Nancy called a friend in a panic. She warned if anything happens to me. Look at Chris Coming up Chris Ben. Waugh's troubles boil over now. The conclusion of the story by June of two thousand seven. It seemed like all areas of forty year. Old Chris Benoit's life were coming to ahead. His marriage was on the rocks. He and his wife. Nancy constantly fought about his continued. Steroid use his career was also hitting the skids. Vince McMahon had recently purchased another wrestling outfit extreme championship wrestling or E C. W It was more of an independent league not as mainstream but it had a dedicated fan base especially among die hard fans by bringing it into the WWe fold. Mcmahon was going to use it as a farm team. Basically a place for young guys to cut their teeth and become better workers but to bridge the gap between this new minor league outfit and the Major Leagues. Wwe E McMahon decided that he needed to send some of his establish talent over to the new show. He decided Chris Ben Wa who had spent time in e C W at the very beginning of his career was the perfect choice at the next pay per view titled Vengeance Night of Champions Been Wa was scheduled to win the easy w heavyweight belt and be the inaugural champion. Now in some regards. This could be seen as an honor. Mcmahon was entrusting Ben Watt to be a coach and mentor to the Young Bucks. He wanted every new guy who walked in the door to model themselves. After Benoi the consummate professional the obedient worker but on the other hand this had to feel like a demotion in some part this was the first shot at the heavyweight title Ben Wa had been given since his run in two thousand four and it was for the minor leagues. It basically seal the deal that he would never be offered another run at the top of the card ever again fellow wrestler. Chris Jericho has denied that Ben. Wa felt any kind of disappointment or sour grapes over his recruitment E C W he was happy to be given the role of mentor but the timing of what followed brings his enthusiasm about the new position into question because on the night he was supposed to win the championship. He was in the middle of murdering his family. While the true cause that tragic weekend will never be known and can never be explained. We do have a pretty good idea of the order of events on the afternoon of June twenty second. Two Thousand Seven Ben Wa visited Dr Ashton. He re upped his lawsuit as well as his prescription for anabolic steroids. According to prescription records Ashton was prescribing him a ten month supply. Every month as author Matthew Randazzo wrote the family physician was basically been was drug dealer later when he was home. A neighbor's pool cleaner saw Ben Wa barbecuing outside his seven-year-old son. Daniel was outside with him playing in the yard. The scene was peaceful idyllic. There was no indication of the horrors to come at nine. Twenty five PM. Someone from the Ben Wa House called Information and ask for the number for the police department authorities later assumed that it was Nancy who made the call. But it's unconfirmed seven minutes later at nine thirty two. She called a neighbor and left a message on the answering machine yet. Her voice was calm. Nothing appeared to be wrong. This might have been due to a potent combination of drugs and alcohol in her system. Toxicology showed that in addition to her normal lore sits Nancy had taken both the anti-anxiety Zanex and the narcotic dilaudid that night. Which means that. She may have been heavily sedated though the medical examiner later stated Nancy's blood levels. Were normal for someone using these drugs. Therapeutically likely around ten PM that night. Chris Attacked Nancy. He brought her to an upstairs family room and bound her wrists and ankles with duct. Tape report suggests that Ben Wa- slammed her face into the floor when she tried to resist her autopsy determined. That Benoit's pinned Nancy to the floor. Face-down pressing his knee into her back. Then he wrapped TV cable around her neck and strangled her Vanua then covered her body with towel placed a Bible on the floor next to her and left her there all the while. Daniel was apparently asleep in his bedroom at some point next morning. Saturday June twenty third Ben Wall went into his son's room. He gave Daniel Enough Xanax to render him unconscious. Then once he'd fallen asleep he smothered his seven year old boy in his own bed. Ben Wa tucked him back in then placed another Bible by his side then Wa was scheduled to wrestle at an event in Beaumont Texas that night he called fellow wrestler Chavez Guerrero and told him he was running late he wouldn't be able to ride with him to the show as planned. Ben Wa claimed that he'd been forced to reschedule his flight. Because Nancy and Daniel were horribly sick with food poisoning. He'd had to take them to the hospital because Nancy was vomiting blood. But he promised he'd still make it to the show before he hung up he stopped and pointedly said. Chabot a love. You Chaba waited for him at the airport as long as he could have been. Wa didn't show. He called him a few more times. No answer. Chavez went to the event in Beaumont Ben Wa never arrived the next morning. Chabot woke up to a few text messages from Chris. He'd sent them in the middle of the night at three fifty am the I said. My physical address is one thirty Green Meadow Lane. Fayetteville Georgia three zero two one five. This immediately struck. Chabot is odd not just the time stamp but the message itself. He knew that Ben Wa was an incredibly private person and used a Po box for all. His correspondence never giving out his home address. So why was he sending it now? A second text message was even stranger. It read the dogs are in the enclosed pool area garage side doors open. After he'd sent the messages Benoit had gone downstairs to his home gym. He rigged up a pulley system using his weight. Machine used it to break his own neck. When Chabot woke up and saw the messages he immediately called Ben Wa but there was no answer that night they were all supposed to wrestle in pay per view match in Houston. Been Wall was supposed to win the E C W heavyweight championship and he was completely. Mia Chris Ben Wa. The consummate professional who worked through any injury always showed up on time. It already missed one scheduled performance but now to everyone knew that something was horribly wrong. The wwe management contacted the Fayetteville Police Department and ask them to go to Benoit's house for a welfare check. They found the dogs in the fenced in yard by the pool. Just like the message said and they found the bodies of the Benoit family. The discovery shocked those who knew Ben Wa and those who were fans of Ben Wa even those who had never heard of Ben Wa until the murder suicide was blasted across the nightly news. Were incomplete disbelief. Everyone was left with the same question. Why talking heads immediately spewed out. A few theories rumors spread from the locker room. That Daniel Benoit's had an intellectual disability called fragile x syndrome. It was speculated that caring for a special needs child put strain on the Ben while marriage and was too much for his father to bear however this was later disproved. There's no indication that Daniel had any kind of developmental issues. The most popular consensus that circled was. Ben Watt suffered from Royd Rage. Based on his physique he was obviously juicing. Anwar must have snapped and Gone Berserk but Dr Julian Bales who studied the men. Wa- case disagreed with the assessment. He said there's no consensus in the medical community that this issue of road rage or uncontrolled violence precipitated by seemingly normal life stressors. There's no consensus that that even exists. Instead Dr Bales believes that Chris been suffered from chronic traumatic encephalopathy or ct according to the Concussion Legacy Foundation Cte is a degenerative brain. Disease found an athlete's military veterans and others with a history of repetitive brain trauma in Cte a protein called Tau forms clumps that slowly spread throughout the brain killing brain cells. Some common changes seen include impulse control problems aggression depression in Paranoia. Benoit's brain was examined after death and doctors found extensive damage consistent with. Cte All four lobes of his brain were heavily scarred and the damage was comparable to that of quote an eighty five year old. Alzheimer's patient Benoit's signature move. The one he performed over a thousand times in the course of his career was the diving headbutt every time he slammed into the mat even if he didn't directly hit his head he still bounced his brain off the inside of his skull. Emt In sports writer. Louis Babcock described the impact of the diving Headbutt on Benoit's brain in an article for bleacher. Report he estimated that every time he jumped from the top rope. Benoi fell to the ground at a speed of nine point eight meters per second and even when his body stopped moving. His internal organs continued to move from Inertia Babcock explained. Chris's brain was a bouncy ball inside a skull for a split second. Every time he hit that move. I think about the math for a minute. If Chris Hits that move ten times a week that is one second now look at how long his career was. Let's say he wrestled two hundred times a year for eleven years. Chris would have wrestled twenty two hundred matches. If he hits the diving Headbutt in each match going by previous formula. Chris's brain is a Bouncy Ball for two hundred twenty seconds which equates to three minutes and forty seconds picture your brain bouncing from front to back of your skull at a speed of nine point eight meters per second for almost four minutes. The cumulative effect of this damage would be huge as we mentioned earlier. Ben Wa was increasingly paranoid in the months leading up to the murders. He believed someone was following him out to hurt him his family. It's possible that he was eventually consumed by these delusions. Perhaps he became so convinced that his family was endanger. He felt that they would only be protected in death. Ultimately we will never be able to understand what Ben Wallace thinking. When he murdered his family will never be able to rationalize or contextualized his actions. But that's kind of the point clearly for him to have done what he did. He was not thinking like a normal person. His mind was broken. His brain was damaged since the Benoi tragedy. The WWE has instituted a number of changes to try to prevent something like this from happening again. They're concussion. Policy has been updated any wrestler who shows any sign of brain injuries. Sidelined recovery a handful of career wrestlers like Daniel Bryan and Corey graves. Were forced to retire over. Repeated in addition the WWE has been more willing to acknowledge and address the rampant substance abuse in the locker room. They have offered help and rehabbed any wrestler with a history of addiction whether they're still actively on the roster or not in the case of Chris Ben Wa. These are changes that would have been invaluable to his life and safety and that of his family but perhaps these changes will save someone else's life in the future.

November Fifth Nineteen Ninety four the Viking arena in Philadelphia. Pennsylvania was a literal sweat. Box Windows no air conditioning. The pungency of a thousand hygienically challenged extreme championship wrestling fans packed around. The ring was so accurate. It could make your eyes water. Twenty seven year old Chris Ben Wa Sporting Blue Lycra pants and a fluffy mullet made his way to the ring for the second main event match the night against Seibu then. Wa- bounced against the ropes. Hyping himself up for the fight. Suddenly saboo raced out from the locker room and dove into the ring sliding under the bottom rope. He leaped Benoit's starting the match before they even rang. The bell fueled by the surprise attack. Ben Watt took his revenge while Sabu's struggled to get back to his feet Benoit's stomped on one of his hands then he took a fistful of. Sabu's hair pulled his head. I level and punched him square in the ear. Ben Watt dominated saboo tossing him around the ring like a rag doll picking him up over his head and dropping him onto the top rope commentator. Joey Styles said what was plain for all to see Ben Wa- feeling very confident in the first few minutes of this match up so confident. He pulled Sabu to his feet. Hoisted him in the air then launched the nearly six foot tall two hundred thirty pound man over his left shoulder for a pancake fall. Seibu didn't turn his body quickly enough. When he landed Vanua heard sickening crack. Saboo had fallen head first onto the mat. His neck bent at a sixty degree. Angle as the entire arena erupted in a mixture of shock horror and applause. Saboo clutched his head in a rolled out of the ring. He gasped to his handler. I broke my neck. I broke my neck God.

Chris Benoit's through the course of his twenty two year career. Been Wa maiden name himself around the world winning titles in Canada Japan Mexico and the US. He was regarded as a hard worker a disciplined wrestler and loving family man until in June of two thousand seven forty year old Ben. Wa did the unthinkable over the course of three days murdered his wife. Nancy their seven year old son. Daniel then took his own life. This week we'll track. Ben was rise through the ranks from his start in stampede to his time in the. Wwe Next week we'll cover the events leading up to the gruesome Ben Wa family tragedy. We'll try to understand how one of the best men in the locker room made the most shocking real life. He'll turn imaginable before we get into the story. Let's talk about professional wrestling for a second. People are quick to point out how wrestling is fake. But that's not really an accurate description as WCW world heavyweight champion Bill. Goldberg said it's not fake. It's predetermined home. What does he mean by that well? Wrestling can't be called a quote unquote real sport. Because it's not a competition. The outcome of every match is decided backstage by Booker's and promoters so no. It's not a sport. It's a performance one that requires a great deal of real talent in real athleticism. Sure guys pull their punches kicks. Don't actually connect. They oversell their injuries to the crowd but the work done in a wrestling. Ring is undeniably grueling and physically punishing. There's a right way to take German SUPLEX. But there's no easy way you're still landing with the full force of your body weight on hard suspended. Matt which is really just a few inches of wood covered by even less foam padding. And if you land the wrong way you can pinched a nerve or rupture a disk or break your frigging neck yet night after night. Show after show wrestlers take to the ring and dive head first off that top rope all in the name putting on a good show and telling a good story and like all stories there are heroes called baby faces in villains called heels for decades wrestlers resolutely maintain their caricature personas both in and out of the ring upholding the strict rules of K. Fehb CANNON. They only referred to each other by their in ring names. Heels only traveled with heels faces only partied with faces and backstage. There are always two separate locker rooms in a fake sport K. Fehb added the necessary realness to work all the wrestling fans out there into believing what they were seeing someone who really buys into the world of wrestling someone who either actually thinks it's real or allows themselves forget that it's predetermined is referred to as a mark. This is a holdover. From the origins of professional wrestling matches were basically mobster backed bedding schemes. Working a mark is con artists Lingo. Later years they weren't so much conning you out of your money as they were your loyalty and Phantom and Chris Ben. Wa was self admittedly one of the biggest wrestling marks of all time. He could never get enough of professional wrestling. Even when he became a professional wrestler himself. Author Matthew Randazzo wrote in His book ring of Hell at heart. Chris Benoit's was just a big fan. Someone who had irrationally followed his childhood dream and continue to pursue it long after he knew. Better Been Wa- up in Edmonton Alberta Canada in the nineteen seventies at that time wrestling promotions. Were broken up by territories who you saw in the ring depended on where you live. Alberta and most of western Canada belong to a promotion called stampede wrestling run by Stu Hart stews wrestlers trained in the dungeon known to be one of the most punishing initiation rites imaginable in a literal basement prison in his mansion. Stu stretched new wrestlers in sadistic submission holds only releasing them when they begged for their lives through. Blubbery tears in this crucible. He produced some of the most violent hard-bitten ASS kickin fighters around. They had to have that kind of talent to survive with their fans ran. Dozo explained is stampede. Ever offered up the type of cartoonish phony action that typified pro wrestling elsewhere. The Bar Brawling audience would riot in heckle and at the center of this destruction in the late seventies early eighties when Crispin Wa. I was a kid. Lewis TV SET. Was the dynamite kid. Tom. Billington Benoit completely idolized him. It only five foot eight and two hundred twenty pounds. Billington made up for his smaller size with insane acrobatics in the ring that could rightfully be described as suicidal his signature move the diving. Headbutt Song Billington Leap headfirst from the top rope arms at his side drilling his skull into his prone opponent chest. He performed the spine shattering stunned thousands of times in his career unsurprisingly. Billington was wheelchair bound and brain damaged for the age of forty other wrestlers called him a cautionary tale but to Crispin Wa. Dynamite kid was his favourite performer personal role model and professional blueprint. Every other wrestling champion was some seven foot. Three hundred pound monster that slapped little guys around in the ring but billiton's agility stunts made the big guys look like uncoordinated Claude that he could wrestle circles around. He proved that mid weight wrestlers could be champions two as long as they had enough guts. Ben Wa who was also small guy decided at age twelve. He was going to follow in dynamites footsteps. No matter what Ben. Wa went to work building up his slight physique through weight training and allegedly steroid use by nineteen eighty five. He could bench press four hundred pounds that year he join stampede wrestling and was brutally initiated into Stu Hart's Dungeon according to Ram Dozo. Stu believe that a pro wrestler should above all else be tough and humble and the only reliable solvent of a rookies ego and fear was the merciless concentrated application of pain. After a trainee experienced true pristine pain there would be nothing that could ever faze him in the ring. This last part was especially important not just to maintain but also to keep a wrestler from getting injured. The choreography of most matches is called in the ring. Generally the only thing laid out beforehand is. Who's going to win? And what their finishing move set will be this. Means the wrestlers have to be able to communicate quickly and accurately during a fight. No matter how beaten up or exhausted or cuss they are they need to be able to react on an instinctual level when another wrestler jumps at them from a top rope or picks them up and body slams them onto the map Stu Applied Malcolm glad wells ten thousand hour rule to professional wrestling but instead of running scales on the cello his boys were running the ropes and taking pratfalls. Ben Wa was a diligent student silently. End Graciously taking his lumps. While this could be seen as a young man adopting professionalism toward his chosen career it could also be seen as the first time the line between real life and K fe blurred for him. The dungeon was legendary among wrestling circles. He'd known what he was signing up for going in he was in on the secret stews stretching all part of the act part of the art so if he played the cave part signed to him tortured trainee wrestler. He'd eventually be allowed to move into his next role promising novice wrestler. Eventually he'd be made the leading man heavyweight champion the more his masochistic work ethic paid off the mortgage life followed the cave script closer. He was becoming the next iteration of the dynamite kid. After only seven months on the stampede active roster nineteen year old Ben. Wa was given his next big break. He was invited to train at the new Japan pro wrestling. Dojo in Tokyo. The DOJ O.'s reputation for punishment and sadistic torture of trainee wrestlers. Made Stu Hart's Dungeon look like summer camp. Their graduation rate was estimated at one percent and been Wa- suffered even more targeted abuse for being a Guy Zine a foreigner and an undersized one at that it was assumed that no Westerner would have the strength to endure the training. He should just drop out now and save them all some time as described by Matthew Randazzo. All the trainees called young boys or co highs. Lived in the barracks at the DOJ. You veterans or seniors called Sent Pies were assigned to mentor them. Young boys were required to show absolute obedience to their send pies no matter the request whether it was doing their laundry buying their groceries or washing their back in the shower when the actual training portion of the day began it started with one thousand squats and five hundred pushups. If any of the young boys showed signs of weakness or pain. They signed another set of five hundred. Only after all this exhausting punishment where they find the allowed to enter the ring and even then most of the time they were stretched if they were allowed to spar it was in the customary. Japanese strong style which was designed to be as real as possible. If the trainers felt like the young boys weren't selling their moves hard enough they punch them in the face for real drawing blood at the end of the day. It was all the young boys could do to drag themselves to the barracks and collapse into their bunks as excruciating as it was Wa in customary fashion. Put his head down. Follow the rules and muscled through after all the dynamite kid was also a product of the new Japan Dojo. This was just one more step on the road to becoming his idol but he honestly hated his time in Japan. He didn't speak the language. He was constantly harassed. He hated the food and he was incredibly homesick. Ben Wa started to retreat. In on himself he earned the nickname. Houdini from his friends for his ability to disappear into thin air fellow. New Japan wrestlers Scott Norton recalled when the boys would be out drinking and eating. We'd be laughing having fun. And then you look at Ben Wa and he'd just not be there his eyes would be blank he'd be on some other planet just staring out space like a Zombie. He did this all the time. Everything in his life was centered around the world of wrestling and his future in the business when he was in the ring came alive establishing himself as a talent to watch but out in the real world and while I had no idea who he was so he simply allowed himself to disappear.

After five months of torture and isolation in the new Japan pro wrestling dojo twenty two year old. Chris Benoit made his in ring debut as a young lion on the bottom of the card but while he showed promise as a wrestler. His Booker's were unimpressed by his face. Just wasn't that handsome so they changed. His name stuck a mask on him and called it a day. He became hege. Sus Kid in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine. He played the he'll to baby face wrestler. Jimmy Thunder lighter and established mid-weight hero who was modeled after a popular cartoon. Lager also wore a mask. He had the body of the Red Ranger and the head of horns. Samurai monster like Benoi lighter dutifully respected the art of wrestling over the sport of wrestling. The pair was so well matched. Their feud reignited the junior heavyweight division with fans and secured Ben `was prestige in New Japan for the rest of his career on August. Nineteenth nineteen ninety. Been One lager faced off for the International Wrestling Grand Prix junior heavyweight championship winning. This was the pinnacle for mid sized guys. In Japan by then lighter had held the belt for two hundred days Ben was victory would be a huge upset. Benoit's started the match slowly rolling lager up into a crossbow. Submission hold he needed to build a clear story. Arc for the audience. One in which he completely dominated lighter. So once lager escaped the submission hold been Wa focused all his attacks on his opponents back. Because according to K- FEHB rules it had been weakened by the stretching. It was something been walk. Could CONTINUE TO EXPLOIT. He smashed lager into the mat with a belly to back SUPLEX. He immediately followed it up with a snap mare grabbing laggard by the neck and flipping him over his shoulder again. Slamming him into the ground back. I so far. The match felt incredibly one-sided Ben Wall couldn't be stopped he ducked ligers Zuri kick in landed on his feet after a hurried back body. Drop it all fed into the narrative that Ben Wa was impervious to anything Threw at him the next time. Lag or charged. Ben Walk kicked him in the stomach then lifted him over his head in a gorilla press once again smashing his opponent down on his back. Every spot benoit performed added more and more damage to ligers back a bridging German suplex a super plex from the top row and a clothesline. That immediately flattened eventually been wa signaled who has time to go to the finish. I he scooped up ligers and crashed him headfirst into the mat with a tombstone piledriver then while arrived unable to move been. Wa climbed to the top rope. He jumped landing directly on top of lager with the left leg. Drop then he scrambled to cover. His opponents flattened body the official counted one. Two three he done it. He'd won the championship and even more amazing. The crowd in the arena cheered and celebrated Benoi as he accepted the belt even though he was a foreigner even though he'd best one of the most popular fan favorite wrestlers. It was a huge win after so many months of feeling like an outsider in Tokyo in this moment in this ring he was accepted with this win and his established prestige from surviving the DOJ. Oh then walk could have wrestled in Japan for the rest of his career if he'd wanted and that was not a lousy prospect. Japenese wrestlers are well paid and earned more respect from the public. They are treated like celebrity athletes. They also have a much less arduous touring schedule allowing them to recuperate from injuries and spend time with their family. They wrestle two weeks on two weeks off. Guaranteed American wrestlers on. The other hand are independent contractors. They're paid for appearances and that's it. They cover their own travel hotel rooms gear food and medical expenses. They don't even get health insurance in Nineteen ninety-four before he was famous triple h signed a basic entry level one year contract with WCW for fifty two thousand dollars the equivalent of a little over ninety thousand dollars. Today after a year he walked he'd spent so much money on expenses. He'd actually lost money in that time. Not only are American wrestlers paid less than their Japanese counterparts. They're actually expected to work. More three hundred shows a year over the course of fifty weeks leaving no time to properly rehab injuries. Meaning that most wrestlers are working hurt half the time and because they're independent contractor agreements guarantee so little if a wrestler is seriously injured and forced to take time off the road. There's a strong chance. Their job won't be waiting for them when they're healed less. They're ultra established megastar. Money Printing machine. John Cena were the rock. This system which is still in place. Today fosters a culture of fear fear of appearing weak and being replaced and that desperation to hold on your job at all costs lends itself to rampant substance abuse. Many wrestlers have a history of alcoholism and narcotics addiction habits that they picked up as a way to dull. The pain enough to keep working. There are many many wrestlers in the history of the wwe who suffered substance abuse issues. Too many cover here but to give one example in two thousand eight Ramos Stereo publicly addressed his addiction to pain medication and Subsequent Rehabilitation. He attributed his introduction to opioids too many injuries as wrestling blogger. Jober GATT related in a post for bleacher report mysterious has had so many surgeries and injuries and on top of that he has to wrestle four to five times a week on the same places. He hurt before painkillers were needed for him to even move half the time despite the opioid addiction and despite what must be constant pain Ramos Stereo refused to give up on his career. As of twenty twenty he still a professional wrestler. Chris Benoit's had seen this kind of reliance on illegal substances in his territory days in Canada. Guys that were so beat to hell. They had to pile on downers every night just to be able to sleep then greeted each morning with a bowl of wheaties into bump of coke to jumpstart them back into action even his hero. Dynamite kid was eventually caught in this cycle then. Wa was never much of a hard drug user or bins drinker but he was allegedly a heavy steroids. User colleagues reported that Ben Wa was constantly juicing. The stampede locker room nicknamed him and his tag team partner mega doses at one point over there extreme usage. This not only helped him maintain his massive musculature but the steroids helped heal his injuries. At a faster rate he was juicing so much in so addicted to life in the ring that while the rest of his new Japan colleagues enjoyed their two weeks off to get some much deserved. Our in our been Wausau out extra matches. Those two weeks off didn't feel like a vacation. They felt like a waste of time. He didn't need a break he needed to work. One of the new Japan promoters hooked. Benoi up with some colleagues in Mexico promotion because he was currently working as Pegasus Kid. A mass performer. He easily fit in with Lucia door. Wrestlers OF LUCIA LIBRA AAA worldwide. Instead of enjoying his paid vacation in Tokyo Ben Wa traveled to squalid venues around Mexico for the better part of nineteen ninety one as described in ring of Hell. The rings were as hard as pavement and the conditions at the smaller shows were Third World Abysmal. Some shows would be held in filthy. Boxing rings cockfighting pits or in rings consisting of concrete platforms covered in Sawdust. The shower meant a garden. Hose out back with the bucket and sometimes the only lighting available was a rope strung over the ring that held a garbage can with a Hobo fire-lit inside of it given this context we understand more. How much crispin Wa was addicted to wrestling? He had a pathological need to prove himself as the most professional most experienced most consummate wrestler of all time. He wanted to be the guy that other wrestlers wanted to be the dynamite kid for a new generation. He never wanted to be accused of resting on success. He wanted to push himself to keep going for more and that meant on the United States wrestling scene until he established himself as a top guy in an American promotion. He'd never let up because without that. Final accolade you could never truly compare himself to the dynamite kid. Twenty Five Year Old Ben. Wa got his chance to make a move in nineteen ninety two when he was booked in world championship. Wrestling's clash of the champions. Tv special though WCW was certainly second banana to wwe. It was still a major televised promotion wrestling as Crispin Wa. No longer the Pegasus Kid. He was tagged with an old friend from stampede. Wrestling biff. Wellington the other half of the mega doses. They were set to fight fellow Canadian Flying Brian. Pilkington and Ben was longtime new. Japan rival Jewsh Thunder lighter. It was just one tag team match in a huge tournament of international talent and it would essentially serve as ben was try out for the American. Big Leagues Ben Wa especially wanting to impress. Wcw's Booker Bill Watts. He'd recently taken the helm and was eager to right the ship. After a few years of mismanagement ben Wa had heard that watts was scouting new talent for the show but he had to strike a delicate balance between trying to impress watts without stealing the spotlight from his competitors author. Matthew Randazzo explained. The match wasn't about Ben Wa. He was brought in to sell the fans on the ability and credibility of Pilsen and lighter. If Watts got the impression that Ben Wa was cutting commercial himself they would never be in the same locker room again. Ben Wa and ligers started the match in the ring their tag team partners cheering them on from the Apron. Tasked with making lighter look good. The men's started out with some traditional Greco Roman grappling Vanua flipped lager over with a fireman's carry ligers popped right back up showing that he was impervious to the move throughout the match. Whenever Been Wa looked like he was getting ahead. It was simply setup for lager to overcome his offense and look more and more superhuman Ben Wa afforded the same courtesy to Brian Pill men working a punishing sequence. Halfway through the match while running the ropes trying to set up a clothesline PULLMAN CAUGHT. Benoi in the middle of the ring and sent him flying outside through the middle. Ropes went Benoi. Tried to come back into the ring from the top rope. Hillman's snatched him from behind sending him crashing to the mat in a belly to back suplex then while Benoit struggled to get to his feet film and took to the top rope himself wants Ben Wa was standing pill. Men launched himself feet first into Benoit's chest leveling him with a dropkick by the end of the seven. And a half minute match. Then why had proven himself as a humble hard worker and ring general? He impressed watts. Well enough. That in January of Nineteen ninety-three he joined WCW full-time and went on tour. But for all his years in the Dungeon and the DOJ oh he was woefully unprepared for the experience. Chris Benoit had gaping blind spot in a key area of American locker rooms. The consummate professional the humble workhorse willing to pay his dues and prove his worth had never before had to contend with backstage politics then wall wasn't walking into professional wrestling locker room he was entering a viper's nest coming up. Ben Wa struggles to find his place in. Wcw spiraling him into depression. Now back to the story in nineteen ninety-three Chris Benoit's joined the Locker Room at world championship wrestling or WCW media mogul Ted. Turner founded the promotion five years earlier to serve as a rival to wwe Turner Birth WCW from the ashes of the failing. Jim Crockett promotions. Jcp's matches already aired on TBS owned by Turner. He figured he'd buy the outfit. Throw some money at it and see if you could make something better out of the time slot maybe even give Vince McMahon in the wwe run for their money so from the beginning WCW was really nothing more than a vanity project. Ted Turner was busy running a TV empire. He didn't have time to act. As a booker promoter instead he farmed out the work to various suits and cowboys over the years. All the while spending tens of millions of dollars on a product that consistently hemorrhage ratings and alienated wrestling fans but Chris Ben Wa and many other young hopefuls like him didn't have access to a crystal ball and therefore had no idea that they'd latch themselves onto the primetime equivalent of the titanic sinking hindenburg disaster. Pompeii eruption all rolled into one. We don't have the time to untangle the Gordian knot that is the gross mismanagement of WCW. Instead we're going to focus on the main issue. The one that affected Chris Benoit the most. It was a political minefield. Whether you made it to the top dependent. On how well you play the game. One that he was wholly unequipped for been. Wa wasn't Schmoozer. He was a worker. Stu Hart had run his promotion like a family. He was the patriarch until he handed over the reins to one of his sons. But even then the stampede boys were brothers. You paid your dues. You got your shot in Japan. The CENN Pie Cohi- system was a form of politics. All its own. There was nothing to manipulate. You either got on your sin pies good side or you were mercilessly harassed until you quit and in both of these. Promotions BEEN STRICT ADHERENCE TO THE RULES OF K. Fehb the professional work ethic the serious dedication. It brought him respect. He was a wrestler's wrestler. Someone to be admired in WCW. He was openly mocked for working too hard been Wa. Watch the guys at the top slither their way into management's good graces by smooth talking and glad-handing the eight guys party their butts off every night stumbled into the ring. Drunk failed to show up for matches at all and raked in millions of dollars all the same while most of the WCW roster was under typical will give you the axe whenever we feel like it. The guys had finagled mind. Boggling guarantees that made little sense to the storytelling as it did to. Wcw's bottom line and it was their total disregard for good storytelling showmanship. That had been walked. Took more offense to than the money decisions about who should win a match and who should be top Guy. Were completely arbitrary. They'd steal someone's heat without a second thought even if it made zero sense for the story line or the established character in ring of Hell. Randazzo uses a rivalry between Hulk Hogan the top face. Wcw At the time and super he'll vader as an example by that point Hogan was pushing forty and all around pretty washed up but the suits WCW who were completely out of touch with wrestling fans still saw Hogan as a superstar so they pushed him to the top of the card and gave him a contract that said he could stay there for as long as Hogan wanted essentially making him his own booker in one thousand nine hundred ninety two. They brought on a young hotshot. He'll named Vader a six foot. Four four hundred fifty pound behemoth. It's finisher the vader bomb was one of the most realistically devastating moves at the time. The vader bomb is a corner. Slingshot splash from the second rope. Vader would bounce a few times on the ring to gain momentum then jumped backwards and land all four hundred fifty pounds directly on his opponents chest. He wants cracked and opponents ribs and ruptured his spleen with the move in K. Fehb rules this was an instant match. Ender there was no way to come back from the vader bomb. Unless you're Hulk Hogan Aka your contractually guaranteed to be invincible. In one of his early matches with vader instead of selling the damage of the bomb at all Hogan leapt up to his feet and started posing in the middle of the ring completely unfazed and just like that. The power of the move and Vader's credibility completely vanished sacrificial lamb to hulk Hogan's vanity to Ben Wa. It was one of the most selfish disrespectful things one wrestler could do to another to the integrity of the work for years been Wa toiled away in. Wcw unable to advance or get any heat. Top Guy. Kevin. Nash referred to him and other mid. Carter's as nothing more than Vanilla midgets. The audience would never accept them as champs in response to this stagnation Ben. Wa followed the gospel of Dungeon and the Dojo. He kept his mouth shut and worked harder night after night. He killed himself in the ring. Still believing that with enough dedication he'd win management's respect and get his shot at the top of the card but all he got for his trouble was more wear and tear on his body constant seething resentment his best friend and fellow. Wcw Mid Carter. Eddie Guerrero was handling the situation even worse than Ben Wa numbing his frustration with booze and drugs eventually he had enough by December thirty first nineteen ninety eight. Guerrero was despondent and completely broken by his. Wcw prison. He went for a drive by himself. He swallowed five capsules of G. H. B. A powerful sedative typically used as an anesthetic then. He slammed on the gas pedal until he reached one hundred and thirty miles per hour and drove off the road into a ditch. Guerrero was launched through the front windshield. His body catapulted one hundred feet through the air. Miraculously Guerrero survived the crash. Though doctors warned that he would likely never walk again unable to accept this and unable to accept that he nearly let the suits at WCW. Get the better of him. Guerrero swallowed and injected. Whatever it took to get back into the ring. Vanua stood by his side once. He returned to the ring acting as caretaker babysitter. An chauffeur Rhonda's wrote after Eddie Drank and killed himself into an incoherent stupor. Ben Walk carried him through hotel rooms and locker rooms in meetings doing his best to keep an eye on Eddie and protect his job so he could support his family and perhaps it was at ease pain and not his own. That finally made been Wa- say uncle or the first time in his life Ben Wa was ready to throw in the towel. On the morning of January sixteenth two thousand before pay per view titled Sold Out and Wa Guerrero and a dozen other mid card guys approached the current. Wcw Bill Bush. They wanted to be released. Not Pleased by the prospect of losing over a dozen workers in one fell swoop. Bush asked the man for some time to think while he contemplated what to do been while allegedly revealed to a WCW announcer that. He'd already made up his mind. He was leaving one way or another Ben. Wa told him that if he didn't get the release from his. Wcw exclusive contract. I'm going to walk out on live TV and punch a ring post shatter my hand. Then I'm going to punch the ring post with my other hand and shattered it too. Then I'm going to walk backstage. Go to the hospital in. Sit Out while I recover. Luckily such drastic measures required a week. After the pay per view Ben Wa was legally released in free to pursue work with another promotion and by the end of the month. He was welcomed with open arms by the WWF which later became the wwe life in the wwe. Locker Room was everything that Ben Walk could hope for. At first he was treated to a heavy push in the booking along with former. Wcw Wrestlers Eddie. Guerrero Dean Milenko. In Perry Saturn. He formed a stable called the radicals. They were immediately pitted against hot commodity. Degeneration x the stable run by management. Darling triple h the next week. The radical stunned audiences with the he'll turn joining forces with DX launching Monday night. Raw to eight point one Nielsen Rating. For the night. Chris Benoit's had climbed the mountaintop and plan to stay there but soon enough the same political maneuvering that plagued the WCW locker room. Made its way to the WWe while. Wcw had lacked a strong leader suffering from a revolving door of clueless promoters narcissistic booker. Wwe had almost the exact opposite problem though. It yielded similar symptoms. The company was ruled by the Iron Fist of Vince McMahon he hired every wrestler approved every plotline and decided the outcome of every match sitting at his knee waiting for their turn on the throne where his two children. Shane and Stephanie and once blatant nepotism was introduced into the equation. Wwe suffered a ratings decline comparable to WCW's similarly the McMahon's abandoned good storytelling and good sense to push self interested. Plotlines favored wrestlers even when the fans pushed back. Stephanie was named head of creative and in charge of the writer's room her real life husband triple age was given title rain after title rain. Eventually the McMahon's took center stage in the ring booking themselves into main event matches once again desperate to prove his ring ability refusing to get lost in the Shuffle Chris. Benoit spent the better part of two thousand one mercilessly. Flaying himself on live. Tv sustaining injury after injury to the point that at the June twenty-fourth King of the ring pay per view then walked completely. Put himself out of commission in a triple threat match with Chris. Jericho and stone. Cold Steve Austin in the final moments of the thirty. Six minute match. Ben Walk. Climb to the top rope for his signature flying headbutt dive. He leaps through the air belly-flopping face first into stone. Colds chest instantly. The entire right side of his body went numb. He insisted on finishing the match which stone cold ultimately won to retain his championship win. Ben Wa finally saw Dr. He learned that a disc in his cervical spine had ruptured pinching. His spinal-cord nerves between two vertebrae. Not only would he needs spinal fusion surgery. There was a chance he'd never wrestle again. When Ben Watt heard the news he reportedly had a complete emotional breakdown. He refused to accept that this could be the end of his career that he could fight for so long to touch the stars only to stumble at a straw like Eddie Guerrero after his car. Accident Chris Benoit's was resolutely determined to come back to wrestling after some Rehab. Though he traditionally stayed away from hard drugs to that point he reportedly started taking any pill that would help him muscle through the pain upon his release from the hospital. His doctor advised that he wait three months before attempting any exercise. Instead the very next day he spent hours jogging up and down the stairs in his house to train. He was a man possessed with one goal. Getting back in that ring even if it killed him thanks again for listening to sports. Criminals will be back next week with arrest of Chris. Benoit's story will follow his return to the wwe and how it impacted. His mental and emotional decline finally will walk through the events of the Benoi family tragedy and how it changed pro wrestling forever for more information on Chris.

All the time and did anyone else did your school. Did you have them at school. All the time. Yeah why is it such a philly thing. Is it softer here. What's going gone? It might be okay out. This is a genuine question Mitch. Mitch I think it's softer here. Because you're in the city. Someone just said the Pennsylvania Dutch which I guess they need it harder they they pull the dough better because they're Dutch. No the German. I knew that but those are the those are I. Don't want to repeat myself because everyone here is remember with my olive garden. Episode is my first episode. I remember I did that episode and I was I walked out and I was like that was fun.

Why why are they went to arrest went on a wrestling road trip? Before he came on tour I did. Yeah I was a highlight so no I I but I would say this. I had the worst pretzel of my life at the Chamois was so fucking wack and it was one of those things where it was like it had been I can look at it and I could tell it looked old as this thing is so fucking just looks like a piece of twisted leather but ordered anyway because I had no food in my stomach I just had Burger King earlier that day and then it got to know was so fucking bad it was cold and it was like tough. It was awful. We consider your ass. Ask Drag I feel like there's there's pretzels that are served. I guess I haven't really seen them anywhere else in in Philly like we used to. They used to be sold on the medians out of paper bags. And really do love frontal faulk and there's like these vending machines. There's people and I don't think they really do that anymore. But they were shaped northeast. It does what a police. I'm just sitting there shape a little differently than they are when you get them at like more commercial the venue. They're kind of more oblong than the ones like the Bavarian Brussels that were used to. I think that's the only interesting thing about me. They have two holes instead of three. I guess is the way you could say it. We think whatever now wow not. It's No yes it is. He is right then beat thirds. I had super pretzels in life fridge. Growing up No one cares about Super Pretzel.

Yeah Yeah No. We had a big box of super pretzels. Put a little water on it and then you sprinkle the solved on their right. It was a dream a dream for me. I like a wet pretzel pretzels. I uh-huh like a pretzel more than like dry. Brush the wet though like wet like soaking wet but wetter when with butter got alex. Sort of brush rush. That's not what I meant but it's fine with water like it's been in the rain. I don't care how gets wet so if it fell in the pool you buy at school. Yeah it'd be like Oh awesome. That guy's got a pool that guy. Hi what is this. I don't know I'm putting myself back in Philly when I lived here. I grew up here mode and if someone had a pool that would have been awesome but we went in the fire hydrant. No it's bad. There was a cop that lives on my block and he the Had A key for it and he would put it on but in the absence of that there would be like you would find out like on a hot summer day like Oh the fire hydrant over on and hawks and rose lease on and everyone like run over to that corner.

Can we think about the point where we can start to transition into it because while Wa is no so what are we talking about what. I think that this is now the point in the show in which we transition in the restaurant good. You said they didn't train listening. You said I didn't want to get into it and I was telling you that it's fine. I was taking your side. We're friends you're you're in a movie. Why do you care if I would another podcast? We'll starring as moon-walker moon-walker two mikes. So so what we were in. DC for a couple of days and close to where we were staying close to our lodging was a a Wa Wa there they have expanded to DC A- and. I was contemplating. Should we go to this Wa wa and I consulted Nangle and I think we decided the right move was to actually go to a proper while Juan Philadelphia but but fuck DC right. Everyone we're gone now. Fuck those people they. I was walking. AH The target. We use Yeah and he was like. I think nick wants us to go to this tomorrow. It was like us on a wars idea in the world. We're going to Philadelphia Newshour. They did the Santa Claus was used on on your shoulders carrying you song in a baby. Bjorn I request they booed. Were you doing in what they did dismantle clause or are you booing. Santa Claus. Was it right that they threw batteries at him. Is that what you're trying to say threw snowballs. I had I worked with a guy from Philadelphia Philadelphia and someone brought up them throwing memories as well that that guy a cheering my co worker. So I work with a guy from Philadelphia and he corrected us once like very sternly. 'cause we were like through batteries at Santa Claus. He was like wait hold on week through snowballs at Santa Claus. There were batteries in the bucket. So toss it wasn't Santa. Oh you're saying it wasn't the Real Santa that's what is alpers so but maybe he deserved it. We weren't there. I don't know it's possible. Look if you're not San on and you're gonNA wear a Santa suit that's stolen valor far as I'm concerned so so the Wa wa check. I knew we weren't going to make the living off that shit of dressing up in Santa every time the early like early November. I get calls that you. Are you ready to play Santa again. I say fuck yeah even my fifty dollars for working Santa every comedy. Play fucking Santa Under this. Funnier Diane branded spot for seventy five dollars in the form of a gift card. So while on DC not well reviewed and it may be a little bit like a two and a half stars on Yelp. has this this chain not because it exists outweigh well outside of Pennsylvania right but like maybe it's expanded a little bit further outside of the original range it wasn't always in DC sees broken DC's broken and we all know it got it got it. Let me tell tell you. Those fat cats system isn't working for everybody if elected I will will make the Wiwa in DC better and immediately leave. 'cause it's so humid there. It's very humid. Wow that's there was a ton of mosquitoes they're too focused talk of DC lot of mosquitoes. Yeah I love the bloodsuckers in DC bloodsuckers right. That's Tom so we went to. We got into Philly. We trained in here urinated second time which Mitch called attention to we went to Are Lodging and then we went to these South Street location which seemed like a newer. Wow what seemed like a newly conservative reaction. What what we had a we had a fan man? We ran into outside. WHO said I was hoping you'd go to this wall Wa which was interesting? Why he picked that one are there? I'm sure there's more than one on South Street twentieth in South Street. Is the streets here. What what was that reaction? Oh Shit this streets are holding batteries in the air. They think I'm Santa Shit you saw the strap up. Meanwhile that's how I get my batteries. So the first thing I will say about Wa wa is it's is the touch screen ordering is. I mean it's the future. It feels like very like a lot of other chains have appropriated this now but using it in while it's like. Oh this is. This is pretty elegant. I will say that it timed out on me twice twice. I like made a sandwich and then it said are you still there. Whatever couldn't get it too? I saw he was. He had a finger like this. And it's an order cancelled and I waved my hand in front of his eyes and he didn't react. Maybe your fingers are warming up. That could be the issue. Warm up your fingers. Yeah it could be my cold blood so I couldn't get the ADS. Misuse with it. But it is like really nifty to even though a little intimidating for first time in customer which I was dating about it. It's like Hoagie. Yes no lettuce okay. Jeez sure love Walla la the issue is. There's so many like decision points. There's so many they can get locked into analysis paralysis. where I'm like okay? Which of these veggies do I want? which modifications do I wanna make you know what I mean? There's so many goals known. I want agrees with you for me. I'd like to make fewer decisions but I like that. It has the I know. A lot of people prefer customize ability and it's easier to WHO A is. Get exactly what you want for through a touch screen rather than through communicating it with someone behind the counter. Who's maybe harried and has a bunch of other things going on right because then you'd have to talk so Philadelphian and honestly nobody wants to avoid it but you guys like the touch screen? I loved it I loved it as well. I have no issues with it whatsoever or my same came out in record time I tell you what I did a lot about the screen. I was nervous That I wasn't going to be able to add extra Mayo to my sandwich. which is how wildlife my sandwiches extra men Lo and behold got damnit? That was an option for extra Mayo. Alison like Oh okay. Wow Wa I see you we out cheer you were you. Were talking about that days ago. You were nervous about the extra at Christie's how does how does it infrastructure you'll city work like how much mail because any extra mail to myself and I went up to the screen it gives us facial recognition where you been the only thing they were supposed to be a secret menu on the screen. You're supposed to touch such a bird or something. I'd bought it. Bub yellow bottom weapons fucking shooter. Jesus sorry sorry you gotta deal with it now. I don't know you think that's what someone would yell out. Bottom left like telling a guy that his date left the grinder. Date is what I'm saying. I couldn't find the secret menu. Yeah what's okay. I was fine with I- yeah plenty of other stuff too or it actually asked me right away. Extra hadn't even ordered anything. Yeah ask ask you if you WanNa Mayo outside the cup of Mayo. Yeah there is. So there's there's as you know all sorts of places. I don't really know what to expect. It looked at some pictures but walking side. There's just like so much stuff like there's there's A. There's a cold sections there. There's there's prepared food that's ready to go. Can I got mad at you because you immediately went right over to the coal food section the prepared food and picked up like a yogurt with GRANOLA. Or I didn't do that. You looked you dead you all right. You examined fine. I didn't put it on my inventory. I just looked at it. And what did you learn. Learn teach you that they have Wa wa Wa wa branded snacks macaroni Salad Bonnie. Okay did pick uh-huh Bonnie Bonnie nick we got hysteria over here going into a Wa Wa picking up at show on like there ain't Blah Blah yogurt right next to him you Jesus in my study picking up a Bonnie Johny right front all my friend. Oh my God I swear. I'll bring you God billy. Millie Exodus one at this table. Rock hard wow. You can't see it. Did you see the table rising. Sorry I'm looking at my Google search for Nick. foles definitely not helping with that but there is like the end sections with a you know. There's there's warm pretzels just sitting in a section. There's a whole bunch of drinks in another section. There's all this stuff you can order off the touch screen. Yes a convenience store but it's just like it's a lot of stuff it's different then what you would see in several of. It's not really an apple comparison seven elevens usually have a smaller footprint but like it's an am PM place. That's usually a little bit bigger a little but more sprawling. It's got so much stuff that specifically branded wow wa it specifically Wa was on food and all pretty high quality and get to try all of it but what I try it you know. It seems like it's stuff were there. They've got pretty good product. Also say let me turn this real quick so I read going into the bathrooms were revered and and that was an element in in my intro. That touched on. We're reading about Penn State. I think so I went in there. One thing I'll say in their favor is that they have a code. Hold on the restroom. But they had the code just like written in tape on the outside of the door so there was no reason for the code to even be there to. Did you do over there so we went so went inside and I gotta say not blown away. It was fine bathroom by the bathroom. Yeah I sixty. What did you do or their number one? That's it. Yeah just number one okay suspiciously. I don't believe it I went to a wow on cranked. Yes number three my friend. It was fine I mean there. They had soap. which is a huge thing? You go into a service station bathroom. And there's no soap and that's just is not hygienic. The toilet was reasonably clean and but they had the accelerator hand dryer which is not a great handwriting talking about I just wasn't blown away by it. What the I? I've never heard you talk. Talk about the the bathroom at a place that you reviewed before I do not listen to this podcast but I feel like I've been on it. You've never talked about the Ba- I looked into because they said it was notable the accelerator rules. I don't like the accelerator. AP Why don't you like the accelerator doesn't get the job done. Yes it does. I don't think I know what are your hands. DIPLO's draw one of the best in the game. I'm really scrubbing up in there. So let my hands are pretty wet. Picking your shirt off. I I think that the I think as Andrews Go. Look I think my issues with hand-driers in general but I don't think that the accelerator is like it's. It's not certainly not anything we're just like. Oh wow these bathrooms are great. They've got the accelerate. I'm just like well I've seen the accelerator. Airport Bathrooms Airport. Bathrooms are anything special. You know I don't know I. I had higher expectations for the bathroom. Maybe that's on me but it didn't quite live up to them but let's get into the foul. I'm just saying all right. Well you said. Let's go is expecting that shitter to be pristine. It was not so we went and we got. I got myself a when you or your sandwiches. You can get a junior hoagie. which is four inch a shorty? Hogue you would just six inch and a classic hoagie which is tentage a got a hell. Yeah and the audience. I got a classic hoagie Spicy Italian. which is the thing they have right now? I got it on a okay. Here's what I'm going to say. This bathrooms lose the bathroom accelerate. Just isn't that great. I don't love the accelerator. I'm not a local is my first time in Philadelphia. It's possible possible. I ordered things in a way that are not. It's not the way you're supposed to order to Wa wa. If that's the case get on my back give me a break do my best trying to navigate the touchscreen. I just made some decisions if you fucked up Buddhist shit out of him so I got spicy Italian on a week role. That's okay unfroze. Did you need to know about Nicaragua. He's a bit of a wheat. Seeker I gotta get some Dietary Terry Fiber so we it has ham chemical and Salami garlic alienate believe what makes us spiciest Cherry Pepper relish which is a saas they put on there. provolone spinach niche tomatoes onions.

I wouldn't have done it but asked me and I was like well I got it do it. Ah I felt obligated to say yes. It was a very stuff. Sandwiches like an overstuffed sandwich. Good to know if I'm ever bombing at affiliated it just say double double its and yeah that was the. That was the sandwich I ordered. Oh cool let's start another podcast ask. Let's go down the line and everyone's say what we ordered. Okay now I'm not one you East Coast Yankees. I got what I wanted to and I ate it and it was good. Okay wait the Yankee is your perception. I just want to let them know that we don't want to eat. You just eat too much shit too much on me all right so I got I a simple. I got a classic ten inch on White. Toast it all the way Hamid Cheese.

Chips and I got eighty two Y.. Y Beverages a watermelon lemonade and fruit punch. That have yet to drink because I drink have of the water eliminate good. Yeah that watermelon lemonade. You show me the nutrition facts. On the back fifty-one grams of sugar. And in ninety six percent of your daily allocation of sugar. There's a third. There's a third column there. That's the your percentage if you're from Philadelphia and it's just a bunch of question marks all right. Let's see here one box laxatives. One box extends penis growing bills. Ah those were wild brain. They got nick foles on the package. Pennsylvania the venue does forty eight grams of sugar bottom left grand. That's the secret menu. I got my. I got two sandwiches. Everyone the first one was a shorty which is fun toasted me Bob Palmer John like a lot and then I went in the same neighborhood. I got a junior chicken strips Tomba the breaded chicken cutlet sandwich. They ruled they were really really good. I was really blown away by the chicken the chicken Parmigiana Sandwich for look. I'm going to save some of that for the wrap up right. It was good I was surprisingly good. I took a nibble of your of chicken sandwich and I agree guys please very good. It was not a nibble I would not allow that. I would not allow him to do that. He took a bite of the sandwich. It's just mind nick nibbling his shortage. No wasn't your junior junior. Aw I adore ably chipmunk Mitch's junior and I thought it was pretty. I thought it was quite good and the meatball. I'd had so so much bread. At that point that I just had the meatball did but the meatball itself I was like this is like a good quality meatball. Like this is like this is like this is better again. Better better than I expected might spicy Italian Sandwich first off. It was overloaded. That's my fault again paralyzed by the customization but the quality of ingredients was very good especially for the amount paid for it like this is just like so much better than a sandwich sandwich that you would get from most sub places right like what is this is like. What did you say Hoagie? Someone on her out of here escort. Nick outy is. The hoagie deserves to be addressed as such. Sorry sorry holding I have a college degree. It's fine it's fine go. Oh Nick honey look this is just it's a regional thing you call them hoagies out here. I'm used to call him subs. We know we're talking about. It's okay let me.

Pulsa your batteries everyone host or your batteries. We got him back. He said it wasn't Sabar. I call it a god Damn Sandwich because his meeting between bread. That's not wrong. I I really liked the garlic. A Oli I. It's not particularly hot but it did have a little bit of spice to it. I think the meat was very good quality. I think the bread was actually. This is the thing Mitch you've got. You've got just a role all with butter. That was was getting some applause for that. which was fucking insane? It was the shortest one and a six inch. Role with butter is huge. which it's so big and we know that too much? No okay I agree. It's pretty really big normal. It's normal even smaller. It's Normal I. It's funny because it was basically just like a butter sub butter sub butter inside of it. I liked it. That was like those are some great bites I had there. Forget and and get it as a side with your Mac and cheese. Yes which is this start. Why why when you order a MAC and cheese? I got a small MAC and cheese. Why does it then offer you a role with butter? What what why is that a Philadelphia thing? It's in the charter. I was very surprised but I was happy. I got it it was. It was very nice. Iceberg Bite Carl. Was Your Sando with extra. Mail was good. Yeah I did. A bread was surprisingly good. I put the Egypt's on it spicy chips. I that was good. That was a great choice. I applaud myself. Oh Salad I liked everything about it. The the days of good cheese choice was good. I got no complaints about that their sandwich I had some I had some nibbles of your sandwich and very adorable nibbled classic tentage. Ah Back it was it was like I think that was my favorite sandwich of all all the ones. I tried very like basic simple sandwich that you got was it. Just the quality ingredients early shown through there and it was. It was delightful delightful. Now nangle has the best one. What did you say nothing? Okay yes sandwich wise. What did you get on your most recent visit? And you have the go-to is someone who's who's been to few times in your life. Oh Okay yes well. I went with my mom and it was. That was fun and I got a a shorty on white and I got a roasted vegetable choice and it was so good I got double vegetables and then I put like a bunch of like pickles and onions and vinegar and stuff like that on it and I think they recommended. I think it was cheddar cheese and it was it was posted. It was so good and not just saying that because I'm desperate for this to be in the golden it was really really impressed by it and my And I also ordered a an egg sandwich. I knew these like on let's and So my mom and I like we're splitting them and the eggs which was good. They recommended Cheddar cheese. I went with it. They recommended and I think that that was a mistake. Stake on their part because the cheddar cheese was not good on the egg. White Omelet Sandwich. Wow yes that's okay it's okay my mom. I'd one thing that I did notice. I don't know if you guys noticed this is my mom was eating half of the veggie Sandwich and my mom has dentures and she was too chewy for her. The role was to chewy which then notice like. Yeah actually the real role is Kinda chewy. But I didn't mind that too much and then I also got A. I got got a tasty cake lemon pie like a little lemon pocket. which is something that you can kind of get tasty cakes and other cities but there's only a few that you can get there's while it has its own selection and it's just like little pocket with covered in like a sugary glaze? Cakes are pie dumb. Look into it. Don't don't do it. And it was Pretzel but what kind of Soft Pretzel. Book and La La Soft Pretzel Noble. Cause I was like you told me in advance to get a soft pretzel and I saw the soft pretzels there and they have like some room. Temp soft pretzels was in plastic. And then they also have under a heat lamp they have a cheese stuffed and a what was the one I got. I got both in the other one. I got the Cheddar Cheese stuffed soft pretzel and the sweet cream. Cheese spreads all G. L. E. I got the I got. Just a pretzel in a bag. So and so. That's the room temp one. They have at the register and I think that they're good. I like them no matter what I eat them. Just like with A. I don't even put mustard on images in the car and I think I'll bring this home and then I in the night in the car you're and I will say about. The the tasty cake was it was so good but it was so sugary like a kind China knocked me out for like two hours. I was just like so sugar at any evening the whole thing but it was fun to go to these. I went to a couple of different places while it was home. Visiting and I was I was with my parents. Live out in Hatfield now and the address sixteen hundred Philadelphia Avenue but I grew up in the city but anyway the we when I was waiting for my sandwich at the counter and everyone they're super nice. I went out by them on forty foot road out in Hatfield a Orlando. Maybe that was technically and it's also a gas station Dan that's all and but they had like little samples free samples out. I guess they were trying to get people to sample their iced coffee drinks drinks and they had this like it was frozen Mocha Cappuccino and they have these little cups out and this lady next to me. Yeah she was like she was a nurse or doctor or something and she was like drinking one and I was like. Oh this free samples. What are those? She goes freezing cold coffee. Yeah that was the name of the product. It's freezing cold coffee but I taste that and that was that was super good too. So yeah wow I was. I was really impressed. I've I wanted to be impressed. And they impressed me. So wow how often often when you were living in Philly proper how often was Wa wa place you would go to when I was growing up there there. I have a bunch of friends. Here from St Martins Torres High School and so I grew up in neighborhood called Oxford Circle and then moved to Northwood. And we you know we didn't drive or anything so there was a seven eleven two blocks from my house. Okay so the thing you would do is like hang out at someone's house and then walk to seven eleven and then walk back and that was the thing that you did that night and you would get like a fruit topa still kind of my weekend nights getting them Fruteau Pius and yeah so mostly like growing up until I was a teenager it was mostly seven elevens until I started kind of getting out into the world and it was and then when I went to college they went to college in West Philly. And there's a huge Wa. Several huge wallows while was all over campus. and My go-to drunk food was SA- plane Bagel with like triple cream cheese. Wow I've thrown up more of those than anyone has eaten so why was was big in my and I always always preferred while while coffee Dunkin donuts and stuff like that. Wow I'm correct fucked up on the right side of history. I'm going to talk about the coffee. Real good yes. It is. S- Quincy Guys Patriots. Oh boy I was at a super bowl. One Who Lewis me they won the eagles won. beat me the eagles. The Eagles Fan so that was nice. That was a Nice Patriots Guy. Congratulating them fuck you the U. ruined by day. The Eagles one go birds. Oh fuck you. Tom Brady said to nick foles. Look you've got a bigger hog than me. I admit it it's funny one thing I'll say about that. I might have brought this up before but it's so weird it to me that for us. It's totally normal is say go birds. But if you're not from here and people are screaming go birds and there's like just billboards with no context. Go Birds I would be. If someone's going on the corner I'd be afraid of birds supporting putting birds or you're kicking bird's out of the city. It's just it's just normal for us but you know sometimes you gotta look at things from an outsider's I right right. I had someone said man. Go pats baby. Who knows by? He'll turn I love it. Don't do this. We talked about this. This don't do this mentioned above. Sorry like are you like this is my thing and I just wanted to sorry. Sorry all right thank you know God damn it. The coffee was the coffee there is good and they have a huge array of different blends. You can and I kept it simple. I went with a classic blend. I get the regular bland because I like a medium to light roast and their regular thank you and then I revisited the bathroom and let me tell you it was good coffee and I'll say this this in this sounds like a slam but I don't mean is the slam I it compares favorably to seven eleven confident me which I like like. It's like a quick to go like coffee option and go for something. That's not freshly brewed something sitting in containers that have been there for for a while for May maybe hours. It's good quality coffee. I liked it up in a good way by the pretzels. I want to dig into a little bit so I also got a cheese stuff soft pretzel. I liked the I like a savory ones the sweet one was so we want to string. That's sweet cream as a lot. It's very I mean Karl. You like a sweet pretzel. What did you think of that joke? I didn't mind it. Oh interesting I thought it was good. uh-huh Yeah it interesting. I don't hate us. It's like a warm Danish. which isn't what I was expecting from a pretzel? Yes yeah but it was pretty good. I think I think I was saying earlier. That pretzels are kind of ubiquitous in Philadelphia cuisine and to me like having the flavored virgins or the dipping sauces is is kind of new. It's always a surprise like just so used to with mustard. I don't know if other people feel that way but it really is. It always feels new to me. I'm like Oh yeah we do that now when we've been doing it for many a year it's always a surprise to me. I'm like flavored pretzels. Mitch do we do we. discussed the MAC and cheese. I think the MAC and cheese is bad in the best way. What does that mean? It means that like it's bad but I like. Oh I gotcha if that makes sense yeah I get it. I'll say about the MAC and cheese. Yeah it was better than some the fast food places they have MAC and cheese like it was definitely better than like. KFC Right. I I mean you know eating magazine them. Gestation is uh not on gas stations cheese and a corner convenience it made me think it specifically made me think of KFC's Mac and cheese and there's like a same sort of thing as a little better but it's that same tier Mac and cheese feels so so chemically processed. Now right like this one. Still Kinda kinda taste like if you eat at the hot bar at the grocery store Oh sure that was that kind of mcentee right. I got a so as far as you can customize mize's drinks and I know the crowd here knows this but for our listeners. Out there you can customize your drinks on that touch screen as well never very extensive cold drink menu. I got myself of a boy. What Mangope who hold on? I was trying to say I knew I had to say smoothie is my third word word. I got ahead of myself as I was reading and I knew that you had to say the third word. You're planning out the third word that you had to say. Inadvertently made a Portmanteau Manteaux of peach and smoothie. I had a mango peach sheds when he went number two what he was little rock. The inadvertently made a Portmanteau of okay. Honey so your father gets home Ida Mango Ango Peach smoothie and they let you add yogurt and I said sure why not so added. Some yogurt was great. It was great. Deserter really liked it as looking great sweet treat you get like it's I mean it's like super duper dance and filling in sugary. But it was delicious. I really I really enjoyed that. smoothie you drink department yeah go back to my list here I so like I said I had the Wa Wa lemonade half lemonade. Half iced tea. The sweetest Arnold Palmer I've ever this one hundred dollars. Ah If you pour this iced tea in Arnold Palmer's mouth he's dead. He would come back to life started. Pablo I drank that down and then I also bought a strawberry lemonade and I took a big gulp of that. And then the lady behind the counter was like you have diabetes now. She gave me insulin. And I was on my way. Insulin in Cheese Pretzel Also Nick I just want to go over. It quickly. Got Myself a bag of Hers Cheddar Popcorn you made hers yours. Not as big as what's that. Nothing got hers. Cheddar popcorn in the hat is in the MAC and cheese there. That's it the two soft pretzels. I did good everyone I did. I tried to really fucking God. You're so mad at us for so so long for not doing wa Wa try to get everything in the fucking store hasluck my own treating their yes at the at the registered. They had these things.

Oh all it melted okay and so I didn't actually get to eat it as it was supposed to be Zuma Story. I like that. They offer it. I liked that they they sell it but yeah let's get to our final thoughts on Wa wa Wa so we're GonNa say our review we're going to give it a four score for zero terrify forks and Nangle. I think you should start because I think we are. We know what your I think. Your scores most predictable. You no me. Don't come over here and be like I know you. You literally said I wanted to be in the Golden Plate Club so yeah but it could be that with four and a half of a platinum. Plato Hi guys. That was way too much time without me talking right. So Gosh what a place. I had a great experience there and one thing I noticed is it's Kinda like you were saying Carl about being like grocery store Macaroni cheese because it is just like a mini grocery store were and it's kind of gotten bigger of the years one thing I noticed when I went in today in the kind of like the colours of their and they have like potatoes and hard world eggs and fruit and stuff was they had eggs like dozen eggs and bacon like leaning against it like uncooked. Baking wow and yes and I was like why is like you go and you go like at Sunday morning and you're coming in from church whatever and you're just like Oh you have to get X.. Bacon and they're right there for you was there for you and you're like like I was not I was not grind. I picked up some peanut shoes which are philly thing. Guys noticed a Vegan snack to and I my boards wow X. six but it's works with a Ph. Wow all right you get a fanatic. Got It Carl. Tart your review your fork fork score must be one thing straight. I'm not hit pan to y'all know that some of Y'all know my thoughts on this damn mm city. No I've had a good time today. An earful solid nap in a basement. I don't the life is like we keep all our guests in the basement as a nice basement where I'm from. We have earthquakes. Diner basement must be nice overall when we walked in that place immediately felt like a tourist tourist able we got I feel like or I was looking around. We've got an authentic philly experience inside of this While convenience store we were ordering our food we got our orders and everything and I kept telling Mike Mike we gotTa pay before we get the sandwich gotta pay and Nick and Mike at Decision making time is is like pulling teeth. Like I'm just GonNa have to this so oh inside of there. There was a dude's pulled up in a like a Lincoln and they all walked in and got while food. They look like Philly guys and one of them looked a lot like meek mill. And I'm not saying that as a joke. I'm not saying as I was like I know. I'm not tripping right that do looks like meek mill and I looked around and like try to like confer with my colleagues and I was like they ain't GonNa know. Are they boys to men. It was and crisslow. His meek mill boys to men ridiculous but I enjoyed the sandwich. I enjoyed the chips that I put on the sandwich coach. Those drinks are too damn sweep more calories than those sixteen ounce drinks in twenty ounce bottle of Coca Cola. Uh Too much much. Did you like it was good okay. I'm just saying we don't even know what Coca Cola is that that is a manufacturer flavor. We not supposed to be drinking there and yet that is healthier than that drink. Yeah we sat down and ate in the while while was not many other people. Were doing that on the floor. They they are. I was like I think we should get this to go. Sit here beside other like crazy dude on the corner. Affiliate Kob walked in and exchange with the MEEK mill looking guy. They felt like it felt like he was like the neighborhood. Cop like oh I know you know Joan I'll give it a four point five forks. Wow Wow this man Mike Mike Mitchell. Jesus Christ listening. I just want to know what you think Wa Wa to me is a funny name for this place because when I'm leaving I'm not going to flip. Flip it upside down. I'm going. I am a seven having eleven the loyalist I loved seven. My whole life on I think there's no my head. There's no way that while walking best seven eleven you know. Oh Wow but hold on. I was as wrong. As those people who bet on Ivan Drago Against Rocky the seven eleven is Ivan Drago Wa wa was rocky while I'm knock seven eleven out. I'm going to sing a song to this. I put lyrics to the very going. Wait wait hold on a second then and then and then then in Eh while was good Wa was great. Cheddar Pretzel Really Not really good. What is really great five four? The I want him back. They forgot about the hat. Niggles put on Philly fanatics pat very cool philly fanatic philly fanatic you know the team philly fanatic always singular. It's a guy not a team team got it. They only batteries at Google. Sorry look I only follow the NBA. I enjoyed all the food I had from Wa wa enjoyed the wide selection of food. They had their the bathroom view. The bathrooms were really built up. Everything about it. who built up the bathrooms? It is your. Why did research into it and people were talking about how great you sow the fast-food bathrooms? But that was nothing to do with going to Wa wa. You keep a list you google hand-driers I was doing Wa wa specific specific research every the quality of its bathrooms. This came off a nick foles. Dick Search that that said at most I can deduct a half fork for that. What because the quality of the food is very good a- and it's it's much better than expected it to be and the wide array of drinks? The service was very good. We haven't really remarked on it. They could be. They couldn't assholes there and they're not like if you make a mishap like you forget to pay which both Mitch and I did when I was at home. I think we gotta Pay Yeah. I think it's telling me that like five times for me to do it. I was still shopping. Yeah they'll be they'll be like nine seventy four U Waiting on payment. It could be about that. But they're not like the service. There was very good. Everyone was very friendly and efficient. I feel like my sandwich was well made. I feel like my sides were good. I feel like my drink was outstanding. ooh Yes something about the service so I have a toothache there are debt is in the House I went. That's you think. Dentists will pay money to have. Nobody's fans hate there be like the meatball twenty five dollars here white guy go. It was a good meet the the girl behind the counter. Yes the woman behind the counter. Sorry she that's that's a good I start okay go ahead. I was asking for advil. She gave me some to. I'll say yes and she said you just put some clove oil on it. That's what dentist do they take. You wasn't he dell and I was like thank you while eighty four point toys. Seven five forks. Wow Wow what does that mean. What does that mean what do you mean what does that mean? What golden blades? It's in right now unless nick ruins it gives. What did you say that you didn't get my? He's talking about the bathrooms again with the bathrooms aside. The food is great. The just the fact that there are bathrooms puts it up a notch above seven eleven in and of itself. Because I've never have toilets and ever was granted. They've got a wide selection of food and the the prepared food was was much better than expected to be. It's like firehouse subs tear. It's like it's like good like their subs are as good as firehouse subs. Hoagies don't be mean to him now before he's he's GonNa give his thing so I think this one does deserve to be in the Golden Plate Club. Four four and a half four. It is the half fork deduction because of the bathroom work. It's partly that. Oh my God I never I think that I could. I never thought I would say this. But if wow US took over all the seven elevens in the world would be better the world will be about. I can't believe I I seven eleven is near and dear my heart but I'll be reporting this to Japan. I will say one thing quickly now but we all logged their scores. I and it's golden play club desire so the Pennsylvania governor's race like last year or something. While gave money to the Republican candidate sheets gave money to the democratic democratic. and Oh interesting. I learned that it is a thing I learned You do about it. What's what's our audience like? They hate politics us. All the food corporations are monstrous. They really are one of the biggest biggest donors. The Republican Party is Coca Cola. There's no fucking there's no winners there's no correct your choice. You can make it still healthy in a while while drink till Huahua drink but yeah to try to be ethical in going to chain restaurants are I just can't do it move on from this. For God's sakes bring this up neck. Sorry for introducing this topic guys. That was a while while we've got some snacks from the audience. We're going to side wish your mouth the APO of a snacker whack snack stack look at how many snacks you guys brought. You guys brought too much. Thank you for doing that.

It on a donates interesting no I never had a carrot on a donut. Try it how. Aw I'll have I had a Garrett on its how they're served very good. I say snacks axel around. It was delicious. I let's say it's just a funny thing that it's like. Oh these fancy doughnuts because I can imagine like family members mind being like like. Don't bring back those fancy doughnuts.

I shouldn't have said everyone else that there was like Kool aid. Pop You you know the old kool-aid plastic bottle Kuei pop things. They were in the fruit. There was fun stuff there. Fuck you guys. I brought these KAZAA. 'cause I was handing them out during my opening bit but I was using tasty cake boxes as boxing gloves and didn't think I'm going to give out the peanut shoes if I have tasted kate boxes on my hands as boxing boxing gloves. So I didn't get to give him out. That's my mirror. These are these are delightful. Goldenberg's peanut chews. This is great great. I really like the peanut flavor inside the dark chocolate. Is it nice calm it. I told Ya wasn't here to pander I'm gonNA whack on these. Wow Wow what did you think about him. My personal preference is not to eat dark chocolate.

Which I hadn't heard of before when I was when I was growing up I think Ronit now it makes me? It gave me excellent so you have a little bit of an aversion to it. Maybe even just psychologically just should be outlawed. Wow this nasty why John Candy is supposed to make you happy. Make you feel good cars award you. Why would you WANNA eat poise? And I go.

Any chains had an embarrassing moment moment or restaurants in general where you had an embarrassing moment like at one point and so now like you're too nervous to go back to that restaurant or in boy. That's a good question. I will not a chain pain but there was a pizza place in Westwood village which is just south of UCLA. Where I went to school where I I I? It's called the Monica's pizza and it was one of those pizza by at a slice places and I got up to like ordered pizza and I got to the register and they had to be my pizza and I just like I just turned and started walking out without paying and and the guy was like. Hey Man what the hell. And then this other guy was like standing in like in my way and that other guy that customer starts going like he was going to run out on you. I stopped him when he was going to run out on you and like I went back and it was like this guy shaming and a pain. And it's like well I can't go back here. This was humiliating. I also had another other incident where I went to a there was a gas station where it used to get a fountain drink every day. As as a as a a work break I was working an office office job and the video game industry and I would go there and get a fountain drink on my break and one day I was saying the guy behind the counter and I was like I was like. Oh thanks man. This guy saw so every day. And he goes Ma'am like he's all offended like I like I called him like a woman Megyn. That is an insult and I was like so startled by it that didn't react and there was like well now. I can't go back there. This guy thinks I insulted his honour. Can I be real with stay inside. That's what I'm saying so I want these tours. I've told my story before but I Back in my first year in La. Yeah I worked on this movie the trouble with romance or you've never heard of it. I was a PA on that movie and it was cabin. newsome's wife was was a star of her current wife. Yes Kimberly will foil remember. Dame is his former wife his new not new but Is Jennifer Siebel newsom.

This is real and I've said this before and there was a unisex handicap bathroom and I went in there and I had movement and someone doc on the door when I was in there and I was like. Huck this sucks. This is like my nightmare. I hate that more than anything. A big guy taking a poo and it smells bad. The sucks and so I was also in a handicap stall so when I opened the door I started to walk with a limp and so I was walking with a limp as so I was walking away and there was this little old lady and see what helped me into the bathroom. This is true. Aw I stopped limping. I gave up on that because she knew it was bullshit and I held the door open for her and helped her into the bathroom. This is real. Oh and she went. Oh it stinks in here. It was one of the worst moments of my entire life. That's it and I would go back to that. In an instance any embarrassing chain moments from either of our guests noce moments my best behavior when I going to change got it I I have slipped and fell in the club before Oh affronted some girls and it was in like a pile of puddle of liquid and it was was all over my ass when I got up.

I'm just like watch was thirteen or fourteen and then and then my own my full reaction goat guys guys guys guys and then the then we saw the person at Assault Shotgun and then AH Christ so in my mind this is a kind of a funny whimsical story but saying it out loud and like see how upset everybody is I now l. understand that maybe isn't but it's we the person jumped over the counter after robbing and fell and my friend and stick it goes in the audience right now. She was walking up and she all she saw the person fall and she started laughing. Good and then the people ran out. Oh and I was trying to explain to my little teenage friends.

So as I hinted in the previous podcast killing with details to recap conversations are like a game tennis and if you want to win you gotta be Serena and and slam the ball away from you the second it lands in your court. You have more power than you think you do. Don't ever forget it. Let the first rule of Improv Improv. Guide you just go with it. Here's what that means. Whatever is said take it literally? Don't question it if they say I don't understand and they mean it. They haven't taken the time to think about it and never will. There is nothing you can say to make them understand. It's not about you. It's about them. The subject of the sentence is eye. Hi for Christ Sake. This is verbal tennis. Do not stand there and hold the ball serve now. I'm allowed mouth woman everything everything I say and everything I don't say has consequences. I'm hyper aware of this. I have to be if I say something incendiary. I'm rarely unaware of it. I've probably run the calculations in my head and decided I had nothing to lose. And here's the thing neither do you. When I say I have nothing to lose? I mean I am in the prisoner's dilemma. When Shutt- question down politely twice? That's me being magnanimous. That's me me being generous with my family answering that question honestly may require me to divulge deeply personal information that the other the person doesn't want to hear or information I just don't WanNa share in that environment in that moment a person who has never had to think about the consequences of what comes out of their mouth might not realize that I'm avoiding the question. Bless their hearts. I can understand it when a man does it but never when a woman does it when a woman does it especially a woman who should know what I'm doing who should see the science. I am way less forgiving. I know women are supposed to support women but when you fail to support me you get what you get and you don't throw a fit. Here's an example. I was sitting thing with a group of people I didn't know particularly well win in response to me saying that I have four kids. One particularly drunk woman asked if we had figured out where the babies came from. I said well since you asked in boy. I'm so glad you asked. We've ruled out anal but blowers are still in play. And so far threesomes soms feel really safe. As long as they're all women but we record them just to be sure and discuss it with their friends later you know instill safe spaces where that sort of things acceptable bill because not everyone wants to hear about it but yeah yeah pregnancy. It's such a mystery but seriously thank you. No one ever asks me about my sex life and I'm really grateful. You brought it up. The Anal sex phase was really not fun. But I did it for Jesus you know to preserve my sexuality from my husband and I really think it was worth it. I mean I never liked sitting down anyway. God knows that didn't need to do it for those five years and that by the way that not sitting down thing. That's why we installed the six. Did you know you don't actually have to sit down in those did you know you can hit three grown men with nipple clamps lamps in those like not touching technology has come such a long way. I kept talking and talking until everyone around me. He was like okay. Okay we get it and I was like. Oh really did I make you uncomfortable. I'd so sorry my social skills just suck cock they suck. I know that was supposed to make me feel embarrassed. And that's what's funny to you but I am not here for your entertainment. I'm a humorless Willis Bitch you know what you would be to after all that anal. I refuse to be the butt of that joke I get. This particular job is common and on the surface harmless but most who know me would think twice before making commentary about my intellect and my sexuality in one fell swoop in front of people. I do know much less people I do not know. What are you trying to say about me about my kids? Who the effort you to comment on my vagina? Because that's what you did. Don't ever insinuate that. My kids is were the results of accidental interactions. And are somehow less worthy in this world. How dare you the real reason? I was mad though the friend I was with at night. The one who brought me to that dinner cannot have children the notion seven that I could have produced. Four out of sheer. Irresponsibility ignores her existence. But they weren't thinking about her when they made that comment. These are her friends. We don't talk enough about fertility. We're focused on VAGINAS and I wanted to make that woman every bit as uncomfortable as my friend felt in that moment I wanted to make a bigger point. I'm sure all heard with Wa wa Wa because once a person is uncomfortable they stopped listening and just all the end. But I don't care I don't need need you to listen and you don't need to know about my vagina. That's one example. Here's another I don't look disabled. But I'm deaf in my left ear. Asking give me how that happened probing for details instead of pivoting. When I say you know college stupidity is a long time ago? Fishing me in that moment means you're going to hear about the blow to my skull just above my left ear. That knocked me to the ground right before I was raped. See You don't want the truth and I don't want to tell it and that's obvious so if I lie and you get get a sense that I'm hiding something and you get excited to push and then I tell the truth you're gonna be embarrassed because that information is deeply personal. It's not what you wanted to hear. You were hoping I would divulge volks something that embarrassed me. Not a secret deep shame am I really the one lacking social skills in these situations. I don't think so when you put me in a position where I can't win. Congratulations that means. You are officially here for my entertainment and I'm a reach for whatever makes you the most uncomfortable because his that's how humor works right making someone else uncomfortable. I'm GonNa make you sorry you asked and if anyone tries to school me about it afterwards I'm going to ask we'll where the fuck were you and now is being hurt when I was being pushed. And why the fuck aren't you having this conversation with the person who pushed me not for me for responding the way that I did I ruin your party or did you not control the situation. And how is that my problem when you realize you weren't in a friendly place when when the people who are supposed to know you best can't remember which year you're deaf end or that you are at all and get really offended when you ask them to speak up or stare at their mouth to make make sure your understanding the words coming out of it because that's weird makes them uncomfortable. It becomes really easy to leave any situation situation where you're uncomfortable is likely not one you asked for or invented. The discomfort is rarely result of your lack of social skills. The problem is not you you and this is the lesson. I learned the hard way when I was raped. This is where the M. K.. You know now was born. You can do everything right and still not win. You can do everything right and still not get justice. So what incentive. Now do I have to do anything the right way if I can't win I do what works best for me and what works. Best for me probably won't work for you so I'm so sorry you're just now learning the lesson. I learned as a kid kid and need to think about what comes out your mouth before you open it but this world is changing A. We don't have to play by rules. That never did work for us. In the first place the carrot is rotten. Here's the stick and neither do you. This is your power our. Don't play that game slam the ball into their courts slam unnecessary details even if you have to make them up into their brains scar their souls with the fiery heat heat of your truth. Say all the things you know you're not supposed to say and maybe they won't ask twice just answer that question. They'd clearly won't rest until you do. It keeps talking until you find that place where they finally get the message and change the subject never to revisit it again remember. This isn't about you you you are not the problem. It's fun when we got spun loose cannon but I have fun when I fire. It doesn't hurt me anymore. People who don't know me who call me volatile are people who don't belong anywhere near me because what they are really saying is that I cannot be counted on to be a team player to be quiet when time being treated like Shit I own my power and I am to be feared. Not because I'm powerful because I know how powerless I actually am and that is what makes me shameless so the mantra the next time someone especially a family member asks ask you a question that is painful one that would require you to disclose really personal details that they've probably already gotten in the past details they don't really want to hear anyway and you don't WanNA WANNA share. Look that person in the face and say don't be daft. Karen that's you being kind. That's a warning. Don't ask don't plead lead serve. ps if we ever do meet in person you might WanNa think twice before asking me if any of those uncomfortable details about my sex life or actually really true. No matter what I say or where I say it it will never be any of your business and yours will never be anyone else's you don't owe anyone anything that makes you uncomfortable or unnecessarily vulnerable including the truth about something. That does not pertain to them. You are not here for their entertainment. No matter how entertaining or how

Let's go on with the show going on my name. Is Louis. Do your eighty my memory. I am your memory and my coach. Remember that maybe classroom or maybe in a job setting where your bachelors something new. And you're just like this hard difficult. I don't know if I'll be able to learn this right. So that's actually. If You keep saying that in your mind that's pretty much like say well mental your mind right here and aid. It wants to receive your information and every time you this is hard. I don't think I'm going to be able to do this. Maybe it's easy for you but I just dumped you. Start putting these labels on yourself. You know I'm I'm not that smart on and so forth every time you say those negative words it's like building up on every new negative word is like putting an extra layer on that Wa wa Wa and information trying to get in but it's budding against the brick wall of negative thoughts native ideas negative labels on yourself so you WanNa do is tear down that wall so you can allow new information to easily penetrated flow into your mind so instead of saying those negative say positive. Things are when you're Butler Avenue. Let's see here like classroom. And you're about Moore's chemistry or physics instead of being man all these math formulas all these different ideas Newton's laws with all this. You know what is pretty easy? You know what I'm smart. You know what I'm a genius. Let you start building yourself star billing more confidence in yourself that you can absorb that information and that's how you tear down that wall that then you've mission can easily absorb. I'm not saying it's not difficult. I'm not saying that it's going to be a challenge. But what I'm saying is if you WANNA make it easier for you to absorb that information you say a negative were negative. Fraser's is making him much more of a challenge to take in that knowledge right so just make it easy to make make that chatted make that difficult learning experience a little bit easier of flow right By just saying or positive more confident ideas creek example. This is taking engineering classes. Because I wanted that something I wanted to do right. I want to head into that route of engineering now. I want to study the brain science psychology things of that nature so I was saying some engineering classes and learn about current DC ACL atrocity all challenging at first and at all. There's a lot of other students there and allow the students struggle with grasping these ideas for me. It seemed pretty easy and I was like. Why is it so easy for me because of the fact that I would be saying this is easy you know I can learn this? I've done more difficult things in the past. You know this is pretty easy even if it was a little challenging still saying you know I can do this. I can learn this. I'm pretty smart. I can absorb this information and when I was there listening to the teacher I would take a lot of notoriety my classmates over like messing around tapping you know tapping a pencil on the desk daydreaming. Because they automatically put up. That won't put up. That one at this was difficult for them so what I did. I instantly tore down the wall for myself and I started telling them as well. Let's just say he's even if it's not even if you don't totally believe just say that it's easy. I'm pretty sure you'll absorb more of that information. Some of this aren't doing like you know what this is pretty easy. This can learn is information right. It'd be more competent himself. Well now your mind your brain to condition yourself from start saying things like I am confident. I can learn anything that I wanted to learn. Put positive labels on yourself instead of saying I'm stupid retarded I can't learn anything. Flip the switch and say the opposite. Stay positive empowering themes put positive labels on your south tipperary. Now you're smart. You're genius you anything. He wants to learn. They should've takeout.

Cast on the remarkable leadership podcast. I'm glad that you're here regardless you're on facebook you can find us on the podcast at remarkable. Podcast DOT COM. And if you're here alive Please put in your questions. We loved IT ANSWER. Ad Lib Dancer. Those as if you're not live and you have questions put him in any way. We will make sure that we get you answers one way another. Maybe become another future episode out today. I'm talking about another leadership. Mistake continuing the series on leadership mistakes and one today that people who know me well might call ironic because the paradoxical perhaps the mistake today the mistake that many leaders make far too often. Is they talk too much. So let's talk about why it is that in first of all you all know a leader who talks too much who spends too much time talking who their voices tend to end up being no more than the sound of the peanuts teacher. Wa Wa wa so listen it is a mistake? Let's talk about number one. Let's talk about why leaders talking too much is a mistake as a bunch of reasons. I'll give you a few number one is when I'm talking. You don't have a chance to engage now obviously in this medium that's different but if I'm your leader and I'm doing the talking every moment I'm talking you don't have a chance to engage and if I want my team to engage that I need to give them opportunities and in too often leaders don't second We make the mistake of doing all the talking and then there isn't even a chance for people to have input now. Engagement is maybe this higher level thing but at a minimum. If I can't even get your input on ideas if I'm doing all the talking and by the way the more I do the talking the more that you decide well Kevin's already decided on this. There's no sense for me to engage or to give him any ideas or try to slip my idea in because he's already decided and even if I haven't that's an unintended consequence that comes from this may be the single biggest reason that leaders talking too much is a mistake is that it creates what I call self perpetuation in other words. You begin to believe that this is how it's supposed to be that Kevin's GonNa talk and I'm gonNA listen and even if has the leader. You're wise and have good ideas. The reality is that if you're always teaching your team how to work with you and if you keep talking. You're basically teaching them. This is about the boss not about me not about my ideas or anything else and one more if you know me well you know that there's one more mistake that I think that this is a cause cause for in that is that if we're talking we can't be learning now for the most part if we're talking we can't learn from others and so. I think that's another reason why it's mystic so we'll get some reasons ways to fix it but I think it's important for us to step back and say so. Why does this happen and I think that once we understand why it happens it puts us in a better position if we find ourselves doing it? To improve our chances of overcoming it and I don't want any of these reasons to be excuses but rather explanations and causes that we can do something about the first one that comes to my mind is that communication style matters a lot. Some people are more extroverted. Some people think out loud. Some people are good at speaking and so they do a Lotta speaking so communication style matters here in an even though some more introverted leaders more reserved leaders may say may not have this problem. Happen as often style isn't the only cause but it is one. I certainly know some more. Introverted leaders is still tend to talk too much. In fact I would say that most leaders talk too much at least in some situations. So why does that happen? Well their past experiences and examples say well the leaders. I've had talked too much. Maybe that's the way it's supposed to be and so my past examples say that and so I kind of mirror those things with lack of better information which may be you now have as of today and maybe you feel like it's expected of you that you're supposed to have the answers that you're supposed to do the talking and all those sorts of things. There's another reason why leaders talked too much and this comes from our ego because when we're talking we're in a place of power and we gotta be very careful vary aware that we're not speaking from a place of our ego or not speaking from a place of power because again we're self-perpetuating what's GONNA come next based on all of this and especially in group situations. I think there's another major cause and that causes this. Yep the fear of silence if I'm afraid of a little silence. I'm going to fill all those spaces so if I'm leading a meeting and and I ask a question of the group really wanting their input but don't get any immediately. Oftentimes we fill in that silence. We fill in that gap not giving people the chance to think and come up with some solutions but rather we dive right back in. And that's not the right answer. That's problem that that specific scenario is probably worth a whole other episode in the future. So the point that I wanna make if you find yourself making this mistake you're not alone and if you find yourself making this mistake now you know some of the reasons why it happens. And maybe you were sort of blissfully unaware or maybe you still are blissfully unaware about how much you're talking in. Are you talking too much? So here's the question. Are you talking too much? Or how much is too much? I would say that for almost all leaders that I've ever worked with observed coached etc that we could talk less almost. So chances are if you're watching or listening to me the odds are you're talking too much at least in some situations and so i WanNa leave you with ideas. That will really help you too short phrases that I think you can remember and I know that if you and when you implement them they will help you overcome this leadership mistake and the first one is asked Moore and assert less when we're speaking. We're making assertions when we're speaking. We're making statements when we were doing and we need to be doing that less. And we want to engage our teams and we want their input and we want them to be giving us all a chance to learn and so asked Moore and cert less. If you do that you'll avoid this problem a little bit more and the second one is simple as well in terms of easy to state maybe harder to do but here. It is talk less and talk later now. I'm basically saying to talk less but I'm telling you when there is a time and a place for us to comment there is a time and a place for us to share our perspective our experience and our wisdom for sure. I am not saying that we should leave people without any of our input as the leader. I'm saying that if we will wait we'll get their input if we will wait. We'll get ideas from them that they can have ownership of if we will wait. They will engage. Talk less and talk later so if you do. Those things asked Moore and assertiveness. Talk less and talk later. You will begin to overcome this common leadership mistake of US talking too much and before I go too long and you accuse me of talking too much a couple of things. This is the kind of practical ideas that we talk about. I work with leaders every month. Is I come alongside them and help them build their skills one skill at a time one month at a time in the remarkable way. It's our way to help you become the leader.

"Did you catch yourself daydreaming about your next getaway the sun the beach an ice cold drink in your hand with the American Airlines advantage mile up card from city you can go from daydreaming two sunbathing by earning miles on everything you buy it's the card that turns everyday purchases into miles like two times advantage miles green boll worm grain bowls full of good now available for delivered an era food as it should be keeps asking you to do something that really isn't your job as green not probably don't want to directly say that's not my job and slash before breakfast to apply for the American Airlines Advantage Mile Up Card today welcome to before fist a production of iheartradio good morning this is Laura welcome to the before breakfast podcast an unreasonable alas we work with human beings who like us a wrapped up in their own dramas what often happens is that people have no boss for something else that really has to get done I mentioned this and then just smile and let her figure out how to deal with this reality are perhaps you have a collie been told to focus exclusively on cleaning up some other backlog now of course the problem with the busy excuse is that you might want to make sure that your computer screen giving you last minute work is she a terrible person maybe but maybe in her mind it's a small request or she clueless believes it's the week comes from management expert Alison Greens book ask a manager in this book she covers all sorts of sticky situations that make the workplace this a bit less wonderful in a perfect world everyone would be mature and emotionally aware no one would ever ask for anything it can take a while to turn it around and when I have other looming deadlines it's hard to fit in when I don't have more notice ideally I'd like at least a few days and suggested that perhaps they'd been watching a bit too much HGTV so it goes in the rest of life for instance maybe a colleague keeps today's tip is about how to push back respectfully when somebody makes an unreasonable request at work today's tip like some will cover next so how can you explain that it is a problem and solve it try this script is there a way for me to get this type of work earlier who all hands on deck situations everything everyone's job but for day to day stuff you're best off explaining why you're not the right person and if possible who might be takes the focus off time and puts it back on the actual work You might say I'm not usually the person who handles that anything you have on your plate in ask a manager green suggests keeping this mindset that she may not even realize that what she's doing is a problem some scripts I'm on deadline with high priority ex and I've gotta stay focused on that so I can't help unfortunately you can again site your manager and note that a contractor who would put a cartoon on the wall featuring a couple asking for their entire house to be gutted and redone for some pittance the beleaguered contractor in the cartoon I think Pablo is and he should be able to help you because honestly a big part of solving the problem of unreasonable requests is green notes believing that it's okay is an obviously tuned to online headlines that have nothing to do with your job as you're saying this and this is why prefer Greens other potential script I can try to fit this in but I had most of today and tomorrow scheduled for other work is there any wiggle room on the deadline for this since it's coming to me so late if you've got clearance from your as with this kind of thing since fitting it in around other priorities and if it keeps happening make her deadline not your problem Audiencia what goes into your job and so they have no idea what's reasonable and what isn't when I was having some home renovation work done I visited hey to protect your own time and say no to this kind of thing if you truly internalize this then you'll more naturally push back and a friendly confident way the ones where there is a clear objective we know we can help and the person has enough relationship capital with us where we want to do what we can today in the meantime this is Laura thanks for listening and here's to making the most of our time absent that this withdrawals without deposits none can sustain that for long so what will you push back on every your answer and just like you don't have a million dollars you don't have all the time in the world either we can save our help for the reasonable requests that is hey everybody I'd love to hear from you you can send me your tips your questions or anything else if you're not a millionaire and someone asked you for a million dollars you'd laugh shrug it off with a simple wish I could help you there you wouldn't

New York trip I had so much fun. And I was only there for two days, and I went to New York and Philly and I really wanna talk about Philly and something in Philly that is really important to me that I think a lot of people out, there are really going to resonate. They're really gonna love this. It's like a really important thing. I have to bring up, but I'll start with New York. Okay. It's like the Philly thing after talk about is like, so going up and so important, the fuck okay we'll start with Philly. Yeah. Yeah. I don't wait around. I have family in Philly. I have an anti in cousins that grip. There's out go there like when I was little, like for big holidays or once in a while for like bar mitzvahs. So it's been a little time in Philly, and there is a store in Philly convenience store. That's only local affiliate in some surrounding states. I think it's expected to Florida but it's very Philly, it's it is such an amazing convenience store. It is my heart sings thinking about it. It is. So unlike anything we have here in LA, and it breaks my heart. It's called wa wa wa wa is everything is life while is death. While is. Darning these light light, it is the alpha the omega. It is everything I've I ever want for my convenience store in one perfect place. It makes seven eleven look like a fucking garbage bag full of horse shit on the side of the street. I, I need you to explain to me in great detail. What a while wa is because I've been need. I've been needing to know. I want to explain it to you. Is it so bad? Is it like a city? Many target is truly, like a convenience store. There's no gas station element that I could see it's like a seven eleven would really be the closest thing I could like in it, too. And what does it have that a seven eleven does not have to things that are the key components of the wa wa these, you have to listen, very carefully? Okay. I'm not going to repeat at so yes, they have like a soda machine. They have like candy and snacks. But they have a sandwich, making difficult sandwich apparatus and it's all. Touchscreen? And I'm talking like hoagie, like subway sandwich, kind of feeling but it's obvious touchscreen, very efficient very delicious sandwiches. Like I it's not anything fancy. They don't have like you know, the hot new topping. There's no kale. You know you can probably imagine. But I got a Turkey on a hoagie with everything. I'd want on it all the touch screen the, the size options for inch six inch and like bigger a four inch. Yes, I am. I'm not this. I'm not so sold you wouldn't be. You would've be Turkey sandwich. You made via touchscreen. Like what else sandwiches are so good. Okay. There's so good. It's like I love subway vibe, you know, I love subway vibe, who doesn't, but this is like subway to me. But boy, l- down to its simplest most pure form. And then with added touchscreen element and you've got to proceed, and you like pay at the counter, and then you pick up your sandwich, whenever you're done. That sounds fun. What else are you getting at the wa wa the other thing about the wall wa that's really key to me is the coffee setup? So at a seven eleven you probably haven't been seven eleven to get coffee in a while, and I respect that I've been for a slurpee recently, but keep going flavor I will do pretty much any flavor. I like coke cherry, a mix of the Cherian the co could really go for fucking slurpy right now. I taste every typically taste every working flavor, and then I'll go from there. Do you like when they do a, of course, the coke Tien is the classic but like when they do another candy like a sour patch? Yes. This hour patch watermelon. Though was not amazing. Yeah. I feel like they always fall off when they replicate another taes. Yeah. For while they had, like Chile, mango, that was like, really big for me. Blue raspberry or a blue classic. Yeah, good. Anyway. So the coffee set up in a seven eleven for example, I find to be repulsive, like that should be. You should have that on lock, but it's always like, like, four crusty little, like coffee spigots. Then the only have those like little hate those little package Cremers. I don't need to be refrigerated. Those those just fill me with rage. It feels like a nightmare. It's a fucking nightmare. It's like are we in the fucking dystopia society where the cream doesn't have to be refrigerated and it comes into truck, and it's like what is that? We can do better when you look at the ingredients, 'cause it's like white doesn't coffeemate need to be refrigerated or like why don't the little thing, the refrigerator because they're like oil, non dairy. It's so bizarre. And of course, I try to live a non dairy lifestyle for the most part. But like when in Rome for me, like if I have to. Like a drip coffee. Like I'll put a little cream in that. And that will make me really happy. Some everyday thing. But are you saying like about side of me that you don't like? Well, let me explain either one. Okay. So I get to. We have a really early flight dairy is so Katie have dairy, but we're giving me a stink face. But, but I love a fresh half and half with, like, with coffee and cinnamon like. You know what I mean? Like a little like Stevie are sugar like that to me takes it to this almost like creamy hot chocolate plays. If you're having a really good drip, coffee, a really nice cream that is a divine experience for me. But, like no. Do I wanna get like crappy seven coffee and put to international delight unrefrigerated cream tubs in it? No, that's like not the divine for me. So at wa wa I have a really early flight. I'm like, please. We leave early and go to Walla at, like six thirty am to get coffee like it would make it would mean so much to me. And it was okay Carolyn, we'll do it 'cause I'd never gotten coffee while before Boolean the sandwiches. And it's just like if you ask anyone from Phillies like, wow, wa it's like a special place. Right. I know Becky Slova alone together. Producer was like telling me that I had to go, and then, of course, they didn't make it but she's fairly, you know, especially also like amazing tasty cake selection, which is an east coast packaged pastry whatever. So we got the coffee. So it's a whole first of all, you get is bomb paying there. So. People there for all walks of life is up people in scrubs. I saw people that were like truck drivers like all walks of life were congregating in the wall of people were talking people were chatting people were, like just going about their about to have their day where they start at these wa wa and the row of coffees that was like on the back wall like those big fresh like hot containers a little spigot, and they were also hot there were so fucking piping hot like in the ten minutes, I was in there. I saw like guys like swap in new to them. Do you know what I mean? I need to be so hot. I need that. Drip, coffee to be so hot fresh old our old. I don't want it totally. I wanted fresh in like piping mother fucking hot. It's the best feeling when you're a salad bar like if it's a whole foods, the hot bar when you see them bring out the fresh been of MAC and cheese. Whatever it is. You just feel like you got one over on society. If you're the Humber your fresh into that I get it. If you're if you're doing something from behind glass, and you can see it at the very end. I, I will always ask ones. New one coming out. Yes. Yes drugs. I'm paying I most tax paying citizen. Wall of coffee and for me, I knows his trashy. I love flavored coffee like oh lever like a hazelnut coffee is. It is absolute heaven for me. That sounds great isn't a syrup situation. No, it's just like in the coffee beans. I'm sure it's like a chemical of some kind. But it's like the coffee itself port.

Incident and it wasn't like. Big metal carabiners of cream. It was real dairy cartons like half and half cream milk, all kinds of milk. And then even even had flavored creams like tall, hazelnut won the of vanilla one, but it wasn't caught me was all wallah, brand, but they were like tall real dairy cartons, and they were also fresh untouched just sitting in this, like little refrigerated bespoke, I can't explain to you how good this coffee was, I wanna know costs, what are this, what, what's the price dollars something I, I don't know, I now I turned on. It was really early. I was really tired but it was just the heat and the tastes. It was just so good at each Cup. It was the same size live for all the cups. I notice do you know what I mean? Z, easy user friendly, and I was doing a lot of Dunkin donuts in New York. And I mean they're at unknown at the delay, but I can make a Dunkin donuts work for me. I, I went up to the counter. And I was like, I've been Dunkin donuts in while like I'm just gonna try to do something like fancy. I was like can I get an Americano with cream or I try to just make fancy? I got it back. I was like this is gross. Why did I do this fuck? This through the way went back to the counter just paid to St. order, while I didn't pay. I had a birthday reward. That was like can I just get a hot coffee at one pump of toasted almond flavor at cream? It was so good. Toasted almond flavor. What does it even tasteless? I don't know. I like that nutty area with the heels on the toasted almond. It was a very subtle almond flavor. And if we're talking he Dunkin donuts, man, those that copies got heat. They give it to you so hot too. You don't actually drink at hot, right? You're where you're waiting for two cooled. I wait a second. I like it when it's piping hot. I don't like it, especially when cream and it becomes kind of like I like the heat and the smell it is so hot at Dunkin donuts. I'm like obsessed with hot coffee right now. Hot. This is like so this is the tweet. I, I don't think I could have cream my coffee every day. I think that would like that would be a lot for me. What would be do drink coffee, every day, at work now pretty much? What do you do? There's an Espresso machine at court in and I go to these machine. I sneak two shots Espresso into a paper Cup. More reasonable Cup whatever fill it up to seventy five percent with hot boiling water from a little boiling water tap. So there's gonna Americano then take a non dairy milk. I bring from home kind right now. It's Khalifa almond fill that up to the top. But that Cup in the microwave. So it's like all hot and then I had cinnamon and stevia you're addicted to heat. It's, it's freaking me out. I loved the heat I love him is new. I mean so we'll do an iced coffee, but in the morning, it's like. The shit. I make it work is not not compared to the heat that Dunkin donuts coffee. That is like the purest look at you. This is like freaky me. I know it's really weird. What? What do I love wa wa had a great time? Clearly, it's only like a party birthday party is going to be wow. Is that what this is? No. It's not. Topped anyone from Philly Philly glow. Me's shout out in the comments speak up. Wa wa is like oh, it's, it's a religion thing like you don't know. Okay. Look, as a person who's like never been wall go, and I get pita in as my thing, you have wa wa, but these things become things for a reason, true, true pita in is the, the best to this on this. I don't like homeless because of pita and I only like they're homeless anyway, won't meet this repeat in that's fine. I really like iced coffees and the fact that you love hot hot is. So though, it's morning thing it's like early in the morning. Is this like shitting thing, does it help you shit. I don't know. It's really just like a cold warning thing, like in New York, and Philly was like so-called those mornings. The hot coffee like inner hands, like I can't tell you it was orgasmic. What else is going on? Did you do anything fun in New York? Like what's happening? Yeah. Well, I have to shut out the KMart in the KMart. New York is a big K mart in the city in the city I was bored. I was my friend in yell loved anyo. We loved in yell, and we she was like, she, we just go film video in KMart like see what they have. It was so fun, KMart. Blew me away with its cosmetic selection, blew me away. What brands what will, what are we had a huge cover go wall with a giant covergirl Queen gondolas only way can describe it like they had the had a huge door. Danna cosmetics selection. I got this beautiful Matt Brown eye shadow from, like Jordana, who even knows what's going on with Jordan, Anna. I got a I got the they had those brushes. Okay. Let's talk about this. You got wet and wild brushes for those of you don't know what and why? Makes his brushes there. I think they're like all a dollar there. So fucking cheap. They're so cheap. They're awesome. They're cute. They're like white and pink bristled, their crushes pink and white there. The they make like I can't believe Jeffrey star Pathet, like expensive fancy brushes when these are like the cutest pressures have ever seen. I whenever CD's I buy them because it's hard to find them, Casey, which one do you got? Yeah. I, I if I walked in Esther, the way you had told me about them as they're hard to find. You never see them. Sure. Tons of them. I can't believe that brought more I have base. I think I have all these ones that you have here. The they're great brushes. And they're the cheapest honestly holler there better and cheaper than elf an elf like the gold standard for cheap. Good brushes q-. It's like it'd be one thing if they were just good brushes, but they are cute. They're so tractive. I just got three. I know I fucked up. I know that was due because I was like I have all these pressures at home. I don't need more. But it's like that's fair. But then when I was like looking at that receipt, I'm pulling up. The receipt, it was so, so insanely cheap. I was so excited to get so many of them and K mart, K mart K mart, so cool. I'm pulling the receipt. Yeah, I brush, one nineteen conceal brush, one nineteen foundation, brush, three nineteen oca-. Yeah I'm having a moment right now. Hock to me with trader Joe's mixed nuts. I Instagram story that and I'm here on the podcast shouting, it loud and proud. The trader Joe's mixed nuts has Mattel, you the exact mix and it is a fifty percent like less sodium version, which I just grab by accident. And it's totally fine. It's all men's their roasted, salted almonds, cashew, macadamia and shelled, pistachios academia are so good. It's so perfect. The nuts complement each other so well by the has an almond in cash shoe. You an are a pa- stash like just criss crossing and mixing those bites up. It's so it's perfect. And I'm really like just all my life. What do I hear all the skin healthy people handful of nuts? It'll keep you full. I'm like, why can't that be me? Why can't I be the person that could snack nuts? Well, guess what I just fucking bought the bag and I'm just going to throw it in my purse, and that's what I'm doing. And it's working, it really does keep you full and I get it. Like, of course, I'd rather have tortilla chips, barbecue, chips and not fucking nuts. But once you just shift that mindset and know that these have nutrients these are good for me. These are gonna make me feel fuller than any of those mindless snacks like I'm making that choice. And I'm committing to it. Now, I don't know how long this Alaska's you burn out on things. But I'm having a moment with it. I'm committing it. I feel good about it. And like I don't know. Yeah. It's just I think it's a it's the perfect healthy snack. This is a great mix. I say I feel like a lot of nut mixes have like hidden sugar raising like crazy shit in them. But this is a really beautiful mix. I gotta shout out the fact that it has cashews and macadamia is too high price nuts. Yeah. Very high price nuts, especially macadamia and I don't feel like they're skimping on those nuts either. Oh, you, you it inspired be actually, even by this is because I was traveling. And I was thinking about how sometimes for work like though fi first class. And what is wouldn't you think first class, if you've ever flown it the signature of a first class fight flight is a small thing of hot nuts hot nuts yet? They just give you like warm warm nut mix. And I was like, oh, I wanna like treat myself and I'll feel like I'm flying first class. So that's why I bought these, and it is, it's like it is luxurious or something luxuriance about having a little nut mix, like just think of. Just switch the mindset like I'm I'm fancy. I mean, almonds like you know, we all had to choke down a couple of minutes here. And there you can't lie yourself and say, almonds are a pleasurable orgasmic experience. But cashews on the other hand, have you? I mean talking about these cashews cashews are so good. It's. It's about that mix. The mix is just is the right mix. I found a macadamia nothing is like butter. Could like suck it dry. I juice macadamia. I know it's making me want a macadamia almond milk quality from Google tiger. I've had one of those in sews or SOGA, but they're so expensive. I know too expensive coffeeshops. Gimme the wall. Why aren't there? Wall was here. I wouldn't be going and buying expensive coffees at their walla's here. I have so much happier. I'm not drip, coffee, girl canno-. I went to law Colome. I know I say it wrong.

You may feel confident. Optimistic amused proud or excited. In the roller coaster ride is faster now more than ever for everyone. You may also notice your internal critic being louder. I'm not doing enough. I'm doing too much. It's important to not make yourself wrong having all these emotions all these moments of self reflection because the more you suppress denied judge ignore these emotions. The longer you're actually impacted by them. Emotion is energy in motion. The ultimate -Ly Pass the visualization. The helped me the most is to imagine that we are all emerged in the ocean in the emotions are the wave and the wave leads of the ocean coming our way. The simplest thing that we could do is to let these wave. Let's let these waves pass over us. The more we try to resist the more we try to avoid the more. We try to suppress these waves. The more war find effort exhausting in counterproductive. So speaking of that think of your presence self. How would you treat your younger self now as you are right now knowing everything that you know? How would you treat your younger self? Probably with more empathy and compassion right a mental model to us. We notice your internal judgmental voice. You're too emotional. You'RE NOT EMOTIONAL ENOUGH. You'll leading too much. You're not leading enough your two decisive. You're not decisive enough. You help too much are you? Don't help enough perhaps use your future. Sixty euro voice. How would your future self treat your present self? That's a quick mental hack. Know that all of it you experience right now. It's all part of you. All of your basic survival instincts. All of your highest conscious aspirations all of it. The whole range is all a part of you before you take care of everyone else. Have more empathy on compassion for yourself. So that when you do surf you come from a place of fullness you come from a place of being complete. I was speaking to entrepreneural friend earlier in. He told me that in his business. Everything has stopped. His sales people aren't selling because everyone's working from home and everything stopped in. He's Mac at his sales people in Because they're not working hard enough from their home in their work from home. Policies Lowering the overall productivity. Why he didn't understand is that when he didn't allow himself to feel because he wanted to put all the fires now which I completely understand at the same time. All of that suppressed emotions turns into resentment and projects onto his employees and ultimately item. Believe that being this way serves anyone and ultimately his way obscene. His resentment hidden from his view is putting his business at risk. So my point of views this when you don't have compassion for yourself you would then project all the judgments towards people around you just like how the airlines tell us to put on the oxygen mask on ourselves first before we put on the oxygen mask on others when we are not physically mentally putting out the fires when we do have a little bit time to breath. I want you to go to a room in. Take a moment in. Just be with all of the internal voice all of the internal judgments all of the hidden emotions that you've been suppressing throughout the day right and this experience may not be pleasant but stay with it as much as you can and actually actively give yourself the grace the space. The patients the compassion. That your future self would in just to be with all of it right now that way. You have a lease a chance to On compress all of this. You've been hidden suppress ignore deny in your daytime right. You can actually just be with it. The thing about all this is that you don't actually have to be public about what you're dealing with. Whether it be the highest of highs or the lowest of lows you don't have to be public about them but just accept them as they are because all of it all off everything that you experience. He is a part of you. Imagine now yourself to be in the middle of the ocean and the waves are energy. Easy motion right. They're coming your way in. You see them coming. You can either resist or deny them which is from my point of view counterproductive and exhausting. Or you cannot allow them to pass over you right or when you're advanced surfer you can actually transmute all energy to serve the wave and let your emotions fuel you into action. If you can't let this fuel you just yet what can do is to have all the love and compassion for your own humanity for the critic for the Senate for the survivalist in you in when you are the highest highs have all the love and all the humanity for your highest self for the parents in you for entrepreneur in you for the community leader in you and have all the love and compassion for all aspects of you from my point of view. This is the most natural most organic most productive way to deal with all of these emotions that inevitably shows up doing on certain time. And when you're at a good place you can then serve those. Who depend on you on the place of fullness and from a place of being complete right judging is really easy at this point judging yourself first and foremost is really easy right now and actually generating more patients generating more empathy generating more compassion for all aspects of EU requires more work. When you have grace in patients for yourself then we can move onto holding space for everyone else right and that would be the topic that we cover tomorrow so take a deep breath. You're doing great. You're doing fine. Have more empathy have more compassion? Are My friends? The intention of this series is doing power you to be healthier happier and stronger doing the sansern time so I want you to do so. Go on try this on the moment. You're notice you start judging yourself you start to be patient with yourself or your start to have negative self talk about yourself. That's the time we can actually bring more love and compassion and patience to yourself are at my friends. Go on and try and let me know how this goes for you until then stay safe. Stay positive I'll talk to you soon. Tomorrow Take Care.

In this nationwide contracts. There's the real big picture. There's the big picture and then there's the story. I'm GonNa give you the real big picture that I'm GonNa get to the story and. The actual big picture will probably be the third thing that you're the real big picture is if you take a look around the United States right now and you say things going to hell. You are looking at a community that is being run entirely by. Democrats. Just, true. Find a part of the United States that appears to be going completely to hell. It's entirely by Democrats by the place that might be screwed up, but it salvageable probably split. and find something that seems to be just fired A. You're not going to see Eddie Democratic power in site thereby exceptions out there but I'm telling you this really holds. I counted on the show. A couple of weeks ago. That wa Wa Tosa was headed to being worse than Madison and it was headed toward being Portland. In terms of. The civil insurrection that was going out of the community. At some point the residents and the city leadership woke up and realized that when you turn over your city to insurrectionists, you're GONNA get insurrection. Now. Whenever I say these things despite the fact that they've this is not exactly a tremendous revelation by what I just mentioned holds up almost every single time. Once you came in the caving never stops in once you start caving and you don't appease your critics they see you as soft and they push for more. While Tosa has a despicable member of the common council. She hates cops she's got a bug upper. But for police said authority, her name is heather cool. But. She's one member. Common Council. She's one radical. WHO's on a common council a community that is skewing left. Ended of itself, she can only do so much harm. But once she suggested that Wa Tosa cave-in. To insurrectionist and fire or police officer who has acted heroically and it's done nothing wrong. The rest of the city council immediately jumped on this, and this is what has led us to the point that we are at right now. We're in a Wa Tosa neighborhood last. Saturday. We're in a while we're Tosa neighborhood, Saturday night. Sixty people can show up at a private residence in rather quiet subdivision. With. No evidence of police department in place. Can Scream and taunt the residents. Then, throw rocks through their windows and eventually fire a shotgun at least one shot. Close to a person's head. All the while children inside the house. As I've been telling people at Tosa. It will continue to get worse. Until you start demanding sub leadership from your community in that means telling people that you are going to start enforcing the law. And resume living in a civil society where you don't get to go into people's neighborhoods and scream and rant and rave at the top of the line chant all sorts of unbelievably vile threats say you're going to kill somewhat. I can't just go do that in front of somebody's house in Hartford. Dave michaels. Paul. Today I don't think he can. Falls get three or four of his goofball France had just decide to go outside somebody's house and scream at the top of the legs for an hour and a half. Hey, we're gonNA, kill Ya. But. Why would Tosa has tolerated this tolerated this tolerated tolerated in tolerated this because they've clip the wings of their police department of that wing clipping started. When they fired a police officer for trying to stop a band who had a loaded stolen gun. With, thirty six rounds of ammunition and it extended magazine from heading into Mayfair ball perhaps intent to commit mass murder at only after the individual fired a shot at the officer. For potentially saving all those lives that officer was fired, which is given tremendous. Strength. To the people who are causing insurrection at Tosa. So they figured we're going to keep pushing the envelope pushing the envelope, pushing the envelope, pushing the envelope pushing the envelope. Right up to the point at which they will start killing people if this doesn't stop. They won't go that far OH. You won't go that far and Portland wasn't going to go that far at Seattle. Was it good to go that far in Minneapolis was a good to go that far nothing's ever going to go that far until of course, it did. Now let's move away from the story and get to a little bit of the bigger picture. I don't know what was more Kelly. The Awol Status of the wobble Tosa Police Department during this. Or the fact that the mainstream media did everything in its, it could to avoid reporting this story for hours. Now I don't work on weekends and have halfway out of commission in terms of what's going on. And I didn't I become aware of this until after Joseph men that put it out a social media post early in the morning. On Sunday. And when I got up, Sunday morning. I. Had A number of people notify me that Mensa had posted this, and this is what had happened while Matosas around six thirty or so in the morning on Sunday? was lying after that that. Meant his girlfriend who? I'm struggling with how much to identify her. It's not a secret who she is and everybody who knows the two of them. Knows her job and her role, but there are children involved here and The residents that they share is in her name. Suffice to say she's in the same crosshairs that he is based on ocupation. Put out a social media post describing what had happened. There are parts of this story though that I think and I realized that I'm doing this show after number of other talk show hosts have already commented, and there has now been some degree of news coverage on the story. I offer all the by comments independent of what anyone else has to say unless I'm citing something that was reported elsewhere. I can tell you. That wa Wa Tulsa police and the Mayor were aware of what was going to happen. At men's I don't mean the shooting but that there was going to be a protest at house edit mayfair over the weekend. There were residents who in fact had emailed the mayor because there were ominous indications that these protesters we're going to up the ante. And the mayor said we're aware of it. Will if there are where there was absolutely no precautions in place at all. Always asked what would you have done? I've been clear from the beginning of this. I would have any situations in which individuals have been threatened officer Mensa has been threatened repeatedly. I would have SWAT team officers riot gear in place we thought that there was going to be a disturbance that doesn't mean they do anything I'd have them in place in case there needed. I would not be part of this crap of Oh you're only going to stir up people even more we have seen were that weakness gets The. Only huge size said he. Word the only major said he of size in the upper midwest that has not seen. Real violent protests other than for the one night was Milwaukee because we had a show of force. We had police officers in riot gear ID we had the national guarded riot gear guarding police district stations, and after the first situation on the Friday night follow of the George flight protests there was looting on. mlk there has virtually nothing in terms of mass destruction. It is for that reason that is one of the reasons at least the police chief Afonso Morales was fired. Because, we actually showed enough force. The people who are hell bent on causing destruction realized they wouldn't get away with it. The places where the police have been ordered to stay back Minneapolis certainly Madison at Wolpe Tosa. We have seen things get worse and worse and worse. So. Again, my commentary has not been new in this regard, but I can tell you as I said and I as. This all goes back to leadership within a community. And maybe Dennis McBride's bad luck that he was elected mayor in. April right before all hell broke loose in this country, but he was elected. And he has shown grotesque weakness here. In part because a good segment of the people who live in Wa wa Tosa are themselves week and have behaved themselves shamefully I say all said a good segment of. The People who live while Matosa have lived in a largely safe community. I said Lars lead entirely. Which? Is Such an interesting community in terms of of its diversity in terms of the different neighborhoods, dense downtown main drags. Usual City boundary-line that zigzags between Milwaukee and while we're Tosa, not just east west, but then as jangle span of north south. You could drive around while we're tossing. Go you see them walkie side the what does decide the Milwaukee side all of this creates for an interesting community. Then, major shopping centers and huge commercial strip on the west side, but also quiet subdivisions. Middle Class, the upper middle class community. And changing in nature in part because of the inflexible walkie residents, perhaps because of the dropping of the residency rule that moved into the community. But during all of this, they have lived in a largely safe community. With a largely high quality of life. Almost. Entirely because they have had a police department that is managed to handle. All of this spectacularly well. Yet there are many residents of that community who turned on their police department with a vengeance. Just. So they could pose politically correct holy pictures. With an entirely different situation occurred an entirely different state Minneapolis. And all of this as I say has led to this point who which we shot saw incredible weakness even though I'm telling you. I'm not sitting here to any Monday morning quarterbacking because I have been telling you all along that. This was going to get worse than I said on this show repeatedly that when they made the decision to recommend the firing Mensa, it was going to get worse and that they wouldn't stop with this. They would next go after the police chief and after that, they would try to get the. Police out of mayfair altogether, and after that, they would try to shut down Mayfair. You'll recall I said all of these things would happen and I stand by all of them and to Warwick. Tosa. Determines get some backbone and realizes that this will not stop at its own that it will only stop when they stopped people who continue to break the law and disturb the peace and threaten people. And that includes people are running through the mall screaming and yelling busted windows shove people over instead of running away from that it means patrolling that wall and making arrests when they occur. In the same fashion that you can't let people go into neighborhoods. And make these kinds of threats that people will where are they? Would you have them printed out? Yeah. Well Hey We have weather advisories that I need to interrupt myself. To pass along to you here. We have a severe thunderstorm warning in effect for portions of Kenosha Racine and Walworth counties. Until four PM, again, we've had a severe thunderstorm watch for much of the listening area in effect throughout the afternoon we now have a warning that's in place for. And I'm looking at our radar here yet and as you probably know been storms moving through the entire region, there's a really strong line I would say if you kind of look toward. City of Waukesha and Brookefield on south toward the state line, and that's where the strongest sellers is that it's a big long cat of north South Pencil like line that's moving. Toward. The East right now through Walworth then of. Proceeding Kosheh counties, we used to call that thing tornado alley because of the number of tornadoes that were kind of come to should even so odd this was kind of shuping across the state. It's sort of moved the beloit area now through Lake Geneva and he's headed to these. That's the line that we're. Concerned right now. So that's the only warning in place. We have watches out there as well severe thunderstorm warning for Kenosha and Walworth counties until four PM. And there may be additional warnings that come up and we'll keep you on top of that. Getting back to the point that I was making. Lost the train of thought a little bit. But I think what I was saying was that I have been. Consistently predicting that things while we're toasted, we're going to get worse. So long as the community was going to continue to show weakness. It isn't just liberals who think this way often conservatives had the same stupid response. When people agitated agitated agitated agitate there's this tendency will just give them what they want and they'll go away. I'm going to tell the story of. Albert. I'm not talking about the what was was the cat that That w the word Allen had to in the weather with him was that Alpert also. Is. Different Albert Sameera. Was it. Albert. Albert. I tell this story even though it's stupid story because. If you reading in the Bible Jesus always talked in parables and the reason he talked in parables is the same reason. I use analogies. It's a way makes the story more memorable if I just tell you the story, you will remember your remember the story about the stupid cat named Albert. And this story? This is not about that. Albert. This is about by Albert. When I went to school a Lacrosse I lived in a dorm for one year. Got The hell out of the dorm as soon as I could. I. Didn't like limited a door. That was when dorms read actually dorms where did you go to college? You go to college anywhere G. BYWATER water couldn't get into a good school I say that about every school there is I told the same stupid joke. It always works for whatever. If if you're in radio, it's never harvard. It's never even Marquette it's we're John. Wyatt is the logger course with us. He's not dead. He just quit. You know he was Platfo Paul was Oshkosh across where Donald go he might have gone to someplace like he went to see Right right. I. He went to Marquette. But I'm guessing graduated like. best-case middle of the class, right? Yeah. I mean we ever went to. Madison. I mean that's generally you're to get radio. I thought Vicky. went to. I she might have gone to a both I don't know. I tell the story about Albert because it's my way. Of making an important political point that I'm going to use to get into a more serious discussion about what happened in the toes said, what needs to happen at Walmart Tosa and the fact that the media has chosen not to cover to essentially play and I think initially attempt to cover this story up. I got of the door miss. Students. I possibly quoted as I was say because back in the urine which I lived in a dorm dorms were actually dorms. Two guys living on top I can't even imagine what the square few. I bet it was less than a hundred square feet. That's probably low had be a little bigger than that. Not much to beds right next to one another you could barely walk between the two of them and two little desk behind them and then tiny little closet. That's it. Every floor had a big bathroom and it was whether shared showers or there's like twelve standard x the twelve other guys there's not stalls or anything. The bathrooms were just filthy as is loud. This is this is the seventies. Everybody's planned rocket roll into four o'clock in the board brooks are being done like crazy everybody's drinking I made was a little overwhelming for me. So I decided to move into a private residence role of these things that happen to you just would not have as many people at one place or another sell it at a different place every year. Okay. I have lived uncast read across it was a sophomore. Enforced Street when I was a junior. I was in no rush to get out of here. There were two places in my senior year and one of them was on. Badger Story. And the House that me and? Three other guys live did. Weirdly, it was like two and sort of a third other guy. I didn't really know Eddie of them. I knew what are the guys that I didn't know the other two and that's just how he always do it back in that day it had we found this house that was not right in the college neighborhood meaning. It was less of a dump than students would normally say it was near downtown, but it was in an actual neighborhood, but it wasn't to route a student area that was mostly a rental house. A guy had rented out but was around US still lot of owner occupied it's occupied single family homes. And moved in. And one day this cat. Scratch it. And you can just see from this cat, this cat. This cat literally had lived nine lives. This was a street cat. In fact, he came from around the alley. He was literally at Alley cat that's it was. K.. And I'm looking at him and pick it. Should I open the door open the door he didn't come in. Okay I'm not that stupid he wants the Melker water so I put some milk owed. then. The next day I put out a little bit of food. As, it turns out what I learned from all the neighbors within three or four days that cat's name was Albert and that cat came with whoever lived in the house. So even though people would move in and out every year, it was generally used for student Housing Albert? Just knew this who would feed him but he never wanted to come inside I mean, once in a blue moon, we get inside the house said he'd walk around but he wanted to stay outside of the St Albert was like this people who live in San Francisco. He was essentially homeless, but he knew where to go in order to get fat. If I had not fed or my roommates not fat Albert. That first couple of days he would have gone elsewhere and look for something else that feed he kept coming back to our because he kept knowing knowing that we were going to feed him. This is true from alley cats too liberal agitators. Once they realize you're stupid enough in our case it wasn't stupid. I like Albert actually he's the perfect cat he didn't come in. Come over and like demand a little bit of this and then you know you'd see him stand at around nine. You don't have to do anything I. Pat Him already you didn't want any of that. This is what? Liberals understand if someone gives them something that they want. especially if it's somebody, they don't much like. They're gonNA come back again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again, and again, this is what drives them crazy about trump. He never gives them what they want and he goes and takes shots right back at them. They are not used to this. With totally different style. The same was true of Scott Walker the other Republican in recent times that they just reviled and despised. Walker never backed out. Can he was GonNa do you know right to war whatever the thanks for if Scott Walker decided he was going to do something he decided he wasn't GonNa Cave in just because the media and the left Eastwood widing complain about it. What Walker. Understood. What I think Sheriff Clarke understands what trump understands is something that hardly anybody else understood ads It's not just that liberals aren't reasonable. They're not reasonable, but that's not the motivation here. It's simple. Common Sense. To move away from the alley, cat. If you're a beggar WHO's working on the corner and there's a corner, make a lot of money that's going to be the corner you keep going to. So, once while Tosa started a cave after the protesters acted obnoxiously to them, they realize this is how we give away. Want we act obnoxiously. They wedded wobble toes say even though most not even live in the city they went started going into city council meetings, government meetings, and screaming and yelling they've got you know there's a normal process for in this virtual meetings through to make it even weirder. But. They're showing up in person. There's normally a time for citizen comment and they would just scream during the meetings and scream and scream and scream and scream and screaming screaming and instead of doing what ought to have been done what would have been done to me or you or any other person who's disrupting a meeting instead of calling the police and hauling them out for at arresting them for being disorderly in a public dating, and Outta love for character buzzes Ho. Now they're responding canoeing this that and the other thing. Then, they said ghetto the fire of the city council has no authority over the police department is the fire and police commission. But to get the author back, the City Council takes this symbolic vote to fire officer. MENSA. The fire and police commission does the same thing the next night. No I. Get I always. Put myself at the other guy shoes you all should. I have never been married, but maybe I if I was married this would be however to figure out mayor of the bliss. Put myself at the other person's shoes rather than always thinking about your own shoes. I know the people who are really good at. Strategic Sporting events that you know that's what they do. Got A billy crafty basketball player vehicle. Jordan. Talk about this all the time how he tried to get into the head of the other guy figure out what he was thinking. In terms of his moods, moves and so on. Put yourself at the other guy's shoes. If. You're an agitator who wants to stir up crap in a suburb. And you stir up crap by screaming and yelling and you get exactly what you want. Are you going to run away go to another suburb really like they tell you to go screw yourself or you're gonNA stay in that same one up the ante with more crap mark rapid more crap and more crap. Evidently Wa Tosa could not figure this out. They sacrifice offer officer. MENSA bay literally sacrifice them. They sacrificed him at the altar altar of political correctness. It started with other cool and then it got to the mayor. It's just not head of for him to continue as employment as a police officer here. It was just not tenable for Joan of arc to continue her life as a young woman we have to burn her at the stake because there are people who didn't like her. Just not tenable. Everything that America is premise the pod. We have all sorts of rights in order to stop mob rule. For thrown by the wayside. This decision while Tosa was made by an entirely white common council and that the victim of this attack was a young african-american. Makes this all the more profound. Clarence Thomas made reference to what they attempted to do for him due to him when he was nominated by the first President George Bush to the United. States Supreme Court what she called it a high tech. Lynching. In they use TV to bring up an amplified, the bogus Anita Hill allegations against him. Well there was a high tech about what happened in while the Tosa with regard to officer. MENSA. And the term lynching can be used rather casually. But. Wa Tosa felt that the criticism that they were getting over officer Mensa was too much trouble for them. So they decided to ruin his life these white liberals who couldn't handle a little bit of criticism decided to. So the black guy into the fire and dispose of him. Not Understanding. That once you threw him into the fire, they realize we could get a real bonfire going. Why quit now? So. There he is recommended for firing suspended, etc.. And the protesters up the ending other start showing up at the guy's house. This was not the first time they showed up at his house. This has happened before. Say the Police Department in the city officials knew it. Now. I know it's always easy after something happens to say, well, why did you think what's going to happen? Which is why I'm glad. That, what I do this program, we have podcast recordings, and so on. Because I told you, it's just going to keep getting worse while Tosa. Again, put yourself in the other guy's shoes. Imagine. Your kids you know neighborhood kids Easter up trouble. Much lower level than this. Remember when I was a kid like I lived in a subdivision where they're always building houses. You're the always a new house go up. And you weren't supposed to go onto that construction site and climb into the basement of the House and so loud that is going up but you know kids would do that sort of harmless other than I suppose we could break our next but this is in the era in which parents didn't seem to care of kids broke. Their next is literally wasn't. I remember that the like three or four days that have rolled his you know usually like some neighbor chase you off and then we'd be mortified right away there is and we kept going in there and we kept going to add noble we're doing this look at it the plywood or something and other or maybe somebody tried to shoot down into the basement it was etc.. And nobody was telling us to go away. I don't know who did what but somebody then decided to break something. I am real vague who I know it was at bay. At then that of course, scared us because. We might actually get in trouble. The reason that we broke something was we had to keep upping the ante that we're we're getting any kind of a reaction here. So when they keep showing up, they're not going to stop showing up at all, they're going to up the ante. And what happened Saturday night when they were screaming and yelling at the top of their lugs at officer Mensa lives with his. Girlfriend story has been described as his residents, girlfriends, residents I believe she owns the house. But. If resides there means. Often. Is there overnight he? He lives there. And It's a neighborhood of. small-sized houses that are close together. I'm not GonNa, give you the address it's been reported in the media, but I'm not going to give you the address. You can find it easy. Lay Off. I'll just say that it's Around two, hundred, th street in that general area. Anyway With. Them screaming at the top of their lungs right in his front yard. Opposite Mensa wet out to like a man talk to them. Hitting power away. He walked out unarmed. Remember even though he's a suspended police officer still in American citizen, he has a right to carry a weapon. And I know why did because I know exactly what I? What? I, know exactly what's happening here? Even though nobody else wants to tell you what's happening here I know what's happening I'm not stupid I know what's happening here he went out to talk to him like a man. who was very reasonable Well like that. Think about this, a mixed race group of agitators confronting a young. African, American. Who's got people in the houses coming out here, wondering why they keep yelling and screaming outside his house. It was at this point according to various witnesses that the object started getting hurled. There was at least one window that was busted out. This. is as Mensa was going back into the house in which he realized he was getting nowhere. According to officer Mensa. Shotgun. Either Shell or pellet. Move very close to his ear. His girl had reported that there were multiple gunshots while would host the police said, there was one shot. As Best I can tell a number of firecrackers were shot off and then shot went off lake, which might be the confusion as to how many shots are being fired. But if somebody who lives in Milwaukee and his heard these protests, all the time, the shooting off fireworks constantly, and one of the reasons protesters shoot off fireworks is because it sounds like gunshots, freaks people off. I know exactly what was happening here? They were hoping that meant would pull out a gun and shoot himself not not shoot himself shoot shoot someone himself. They WANNA get men said it kills somebody else or shoot at somebody else and there are people there that were armed ready to shoot back. They were trying to provoke him. That's what this was. Why also they shooting off all all the firecrackers all at once tried to get him. On my God, they're shooting at me Pelotas Gut. But. He didn't have a gun with him. He was smart enough to know that he's not right now being denied the rights rights if an American. Citizen and being able to defend himself because for defending himself earlier situations professionally, they're trying to destroy his life. And it was after this that there was a police response and the crowd dispersed. There was essentially no police presence so far as I can tell. During the time that any of this was going on because if there was. The police would have separated officer Mensa from these individuals that were agitating. One has a right to protest on sidewalks but one does not have a right to disturb the peace furthermore in almost every community in the United States. If you're going to have it organized protests, you're supposed to get a permit in advance. They didn't have any of these things. There was dead the grass everything under the sun and the next thing you know objects are being hurled and as I say a gun was fired. I don't know if they were trying to hit him or not. As I, say it sounds to me like they were trying to do some provoking. But maybe they worked tried to hit him. Don't know. Things can happen. I don't think I'll name the guy but there's a guy who's had various issues. I got a name why not? Yet. Over the years I've been a lot of problems with frank. Jewett and frank has had some issues I think. Coping with life. And aside long after the incident in which he was beaten up at the police party in Milwaukee and so on and lying after he blew through the money from settlement and so on. There were a couple of weird disturbances that would occur at the House that frank live with with his girlfriend. There was an odd thing at Selfridge Ridgewood franken making allegations there but odd standoffs at the police et Cetera et Cetera et Cetera I mean some people just The not wired right and there could be issues. There was a standoff recently in the area where the person was domestic situation and for hours the police waited him outside. That can happen anywhere where an isolated case somebody's having a bad day. They get on hinged they make threats this can happen in any neighborhood anywhere. This was not that this is the building and building and building and building, and building and building and building. You have people that are out there. Who Don't much like America don't much like police adjust love be able to act up and behave and carry odd knowing they could get away with it who have used this officer at wildwood. Tosa. As their own personal whipping post just so that they can take shots and carry on and they have been doing it because Wa Tosa has been too wimpy to do anything about it. Could have been menominee falls. Had there not at least been some response after they went out to the gas station and took whistles on the side of the building and so what the police did show up they make clear that they weren't going to tolerate that any longer but wallet Tosa has been rolling over to this from the beginning just as they have rolled over all along efforts since the Mayfair protest started. Back years. If you people at Walmart Tosa WanNa have peace you've got to be willing to have confrontation I. This is true of anything in life. The person whose behavior has impressed me boast action there's two people. Officer men's a young officer men say and his girlfriend have been so professional. And so wonderful through all of this. I am hopeful that officer men Sisu, was the can off the people of Wall Tosa, and you people that while the Tosa overtax yourself like crazy to build all these schools that you're putting up that you're not even going to use because you've decided that. Not Safe to let your kids go to school, but it is safe to allow a bunch of people who are threatening to kill police officers show up at his house and shoot at him. Could pay settlement here for. The wrongful termination of the career of a police and trashing of police officers reputation who has nothing wrong other than to try to stop mass murder from going out at the mall. To be committed by a seventeen year old who had a lengthy juvenile record was running around with a stolen gut? And posed on social media. Pictures of himself with his God's. Yet through all of this officer men say has responded has behaved respect. He has not shot off his mouth angrily. He's not condemned the community of Walmart. Oh. So he's not condemned the mayor. He has barely spoke in Kabwe about himself and his family members have done the same. He has roots in the community has gone to church in the community grew up in the community, and as I say, his girlfriend is a servant in that community as well. We have a tornado warning right now until four fifteen for Kenosha county. Again, if you're just tuning in, this is the same line of storms that we've been talking about since the beginning of the program that has been moving the get a quick look at my rate right now. There's a big area of rain really on the southern half of the state of Wisconsin but the strongest lines of actual thunderstorm for those of you see the radar, the red part. This is now a kind of the eastern portion of Walworth county moving into racine and Kenosha County, and one of them is strong enough that there's either better tornado citing or conditions exist that lead them to think that there might be a tornado. This is in Kenosha County, and as I say, the front end of the storm is right now just pushing toward the lake and the guts. Is over central Canola County is this thing moves through so tornado warning until four fifteen in Kenosha county and I can't do any narrative because apparently. The actual there's been a sighting just over the state what? I'd location in the sky with two old Tornado has been spotted in the Sky I, guess, it's still the funnel clouds spotted in the sky near Antiach a little I, which is just over the lied in other words if you at North Mannequin be in West Central Kenosha, county I and so on his so I'm a swimming there's weather. Advisories south of the border as well but are reporting your courses only offer the state of Wisconsin.

Eleven thirty Wsmr grabbing late afternoon showy horse required to bring your tornado warnings that and that's why you heard that emergency advisory US. So four fifteen. Four Kenosha with that storm that's moving through the east right. Now, a severe thunderstorm moving through that could produce a tornado. We have been discussing the situation in Tulsa which is escalating and. I would say right now is out of control when you have a shotgun being fired. Either at or near someone. After. Windows were smashed out of their house and a protest that has been occurring. More than once. And the leadership of the community apparently deciding to do nothing about it. Until now they've got a meeting today there's a meeting today mayor, but decided I'm mayor after all called together police chief, wherever, well, what are we going to do to protect? This police officer notice he didn't say what are we going to do to stop the criminal behavior that is going on in our community? He has not said that. And that's not going to occur until they are willing to take back control the Mayfair Mall, they're willing to take back control of North Avenue in the streets that are constantly obstructed and they're willing to take back the neighborhoods in which out of control loud. Raucous UNCIVIL and upon occasion, illegal behavior occurs in individual neighborhoods of people that are trying to threaten family members. As I mentioned. The two people who through this and it's hard to single out a lot of heroes and Jose because they're Ben. They certainly none in city government there are. Members of the only one member of the city council voted not to get rid of officer. MENSA quite a few phonies on there including a handful of Dink's from the west side who've passed themselves off in the past as conservative and shown their true colors here by the way they turned on their community and turned on. This young man I'm going to read. Officer Meneses Original Social Media Post. Interestingly, his girlfriend's post has not been reported to my knowledge in the media other may be on some talk shows. This was their first hand discuss description this with an hours of the incident occurred in which they described. What happened and there is say some conflicts here and my explanation is believed that some of the firecrackers were. Misconstrued has gunshots shots, but I. This is what officer so posted. Any posted this in the middle of the night Sunday morning the incentive occurred. Late Saturday night last night protesters came to my girlfriend's house while I was there and tried to kill Kilby. I was unarmed and tried to defend my property and the property of girlfriend. We were both assaulted punched and ultimately shot at several times a shotgun round missed me by inches not once that I ever swing back or reciprocate any of the hate that was being directed at me. I am all for peaceful protests even against me, but this was anything but peaceful faith through toilet paper, inner trees, broker windows, and again shot at both of us as they were trying to kill me. There are children that live there and they knew that. The irony in all of this is that they chanted black lives matter the entire time but had zero respect for any of the black children that live there or me. A black bed. Also posted on social media. Joseph and I were shot at today. Shot by cowards who were inches away from us but missed they shot into my home. One gun was a shotgun. They physically attacked Joseph and I. They broke the windows to my house. They shot into my house causing damage to the brick. You prove nothing today. Now I have to come up with the funds to repair your damages that prove nothing. You completely forgot with this movement is about. There is a high volume of children on that block that you could have harmed. I will still be returning to work to protect the community that I love. And she posts photos. Of some of the bruises and scrapes and scratches. That she sustained and. Side of her neck, her arms leg, and so on. She scratched and kind of gouged up it. Looked like there was a little bit of bruising. That was developing. That response was very restraint. Imagine your being on the receiving end of something like this. Imagine if. Bunch of white thugs from Milwaukee or west Alice or anywhere. Franklin. decided to show up at the home of an African American protesters house and do this, and then rough up the people there and fire a gunshot. Can you imagine? Jackson and Sharpton and the whole bunch they'd be here everybody's screaming and yelling Oh my goodness. Gracious. Officer men say and his girlfriend are being discriminated against because of their profession that they chose. Almost undeniable. They aren't George. Floyd. Excuse me. They aren't officer shod. And none of the victims of officer. MENSA are George. Floyd. And everyone ought to know that. What they were looking for in Wisconsin was somebody to make a symbol of and they decided to settle on this young officer from wobble Tosa because they don't have any George Floyd type shootings here. And while would Tosa decided to respond to this? By turning their backs on this officer, turning their backs on their police department, selling out their local police chief and instead appeasing a mayor who still trying to sell sell copies of his thirty year old book on racism in Wa. Tosa I'm sorry for having to make it personal but that's clearly what's going on here. Now would Tosa cad? Justice Madison, eventually, sort of woke up and realized my goodness. Gracious. They're trying to firebomb the jail. The city county building has dozens, maybe hundreds of inmates that are in it. They're all sorts of other people that are working there plus it's the second biggest government building that we have here not counting the university. We can't just let him firebomb it. They tried to beat up and maybe kill a democratic member of the. State. Senate state Senate and they tore down to statues that I liberal icons of the state that finally was enough for Madison. May. Maybe this is finally enough for while we're Tosa, that they're going to decide to retake control of their city but that means you've got to start enforcing the law again even against protestors even if some of those protesters are African American and you need to make clear that people do not get to be threatened while Tosa law abiding citizens of the community do not get to be threatened and have this kind of thing occur to them, and when people show up at a disturbing the peace you respond by having police presence and you have those. Sufficiently armed and protected to be able to be ready for anything. This is what would be done almost Eddie normal community. It, in fact, was what was not in Milwaukee When we had the confrontation on McKinley Avenue where police used tear gas now I grant you. Police Chief Morales that's one of the reasons they fired him because he kept the peace in the city by showing moderate nonlethal force. There've been a number of reactions from public officials that the thing that occurred Waubosa over the weekend and this mistreatment issued by the mayor. There has been to my knowledge. No statement issued an apology at all by other cool who started this no statement from Jason Cofer already of the other Alderman who decided to assassinate this young man's career and ruin his family's life. They've been some statements from individuals who are running for public office others conspicuous by their silence. Thunderstorms it'll be third. Line say. Mkhwanazi go to Chicago I. That's where the line is in it sort of pushing to the north and the East angling up But. At the southeastern corner of the state here again, we have a tornado warning for a few more minutes and Kenosha County. We might get an update more advisers don't know right. I'm GonNa give you the sizzling summer cash context word for the four o'clock hour. Again, you'll have until five pm text in the following word to two, hundred, two, hundred maybe you can win a thousand dollars. The word is family F. A.. M.. I. L. Y. Family you'll get a text confirming entry plus iheartradio Info. Standard Data and message rates apply in this. They should wide contest to my knowledge Tony vs had nothing to say. About the disgraceful incident that occurred Matosa over the weekend in which. A. Police officer and Girlfriend and children had their home shot at after the house was attacked. In the latest round of protests that have been occurring outside. Of the home owned by the girlfriend in Walmart Tosa It doesn't surprise me the twenty percents go to say anything because Tony You Persson the Democrats had made very clear. That they're on the side of the protesters and out of the side of the police. That may sound harsh but I don't know any other way. You can take this. If we are dividing this into a police or anti police argument in the United States police are getting no support in many communities. In some communities they're being attacked their budgets are being funded in Milwaukee. The police chief was fired in Warwick hosts other trying to fire a police officer for doing his job. And there are even the tacit comments of support. Well, we support our first responders. You can't even get that out of some liberal mouth in the meantime former governor Scott Walker over the weekend labeled the incident in Wa Tosa as domestic terrorism I applaud Governor Walker, for not mincing words. They are tempting to terrify a family because. Of the career choice of an individual and they have been in bold and by the fact that that individual was sold out by Mayor McBride and the Waubosa Counsil when they decided in an attempt to stop the protestors from bugging us. We're going to target this officer and Put. This slurring his name bad cop for the remainder of his life. This has emboldened the protesters to go after him even farther. Update you right now we have a tornado warning in effect for Racine County until four, forty, five, I mentioned the storm is moving to the kind of in the northeast and it was logical as I said that we'd have an update this. As, are warning in Kenosha County is expiring in a couple of moments tornado warning receive county till four, forty five, and right now, the crosshairs of the storm would be the union girl of York Phil Redmond area, which is in West Central. Versi County So again, I applaud Governor Walker for using that language at domestic terrorism. This is terrorizing activity. And it is being done for a political purpose. Other statements some less laudatory, some decent enough put out. Some had nothing to say now I'm not sure if this particular residents is actually in the fifth congressional district, I know a good chunk. Kubotausa is in Congressman Sensenbrenner district. That's the one. That's the subject of the election tomorrow WHO's a Democrat running on the ballot pulsa wits in two Republicans Cliff Temple and Scott Fitzgerald. At least to me not one of them is bothered even put out. A word on this. Maybe they none of the three of them. They're too busy banging on doors. They couldn't be bothered by the fact that terrorism is occurring in their district. Jillian. Bradley who has a state Senate candidate running in Jason District back it's just the right. Now that has a lot of the storm activity going through it in southeastern Wisconsin put out a strong statement condemning the actions that have been going on in the community Jason Jillian Bradley Statement. Radical. Behavior destroying our communities must ed. I won't read the entire thing body and lea running for the state assembly in the very area where the attack occurred. She's in a three way. Republican. Primary running against the Rhino at a nobody. But Ryan was Linda Boucher Bonny Lee State Assembly candidate and conservative put on a strong statement statement of attack on attack of officer mentioned Saturday officer mench Saturday evening a large group Kerry carried out a truly heinous act in our community violent protesters broke in. And attacked officer Joseph Mensah and threatened not only his own, not only his own life. But that his girlfriend and the children in their home officer Mensa attempted to talk to the angry protests outside the residence but was met with physical violence as he retreated armed protesters fired to the back door attempting to shoot officer Mensa and others inside the home. That's the statement from Bonnie Lee candidate for the state assembly as I say, we haven't gotten anything into. State Senator Dale Koya egg represents that district the mob attack. In fact, an assassination attempt an officer is a Paula. newstalk eleven said Mark belling late afternoon show. Again, we get these alerts him the emergency notification system that we have to air these only when there were tornado warnings and they come up automated like that and without any warning to me, and that's why I was interrupted in mid sentence. So again, that Tornado warnings for Central, Racine County, until four forty five, it is the only weather warning that is currently in effect at this moment. Again, this very strong line of storms moving through a kind of heading from the southwest toward the northeast, the southeastern quarter of the W I S. Mentioned the statement state Senator Dale Conga who commented on the terrible incident that occurred while but Tosa Saturday night a story that. Really was blacked out by the media wasn't any of the local TV stations Sunday morning barely showed up on their websites despite the fact that. Horrifying and frightening event. Sugar coated in today's newspaper. They don't even mention on page one, the gun shot that was fired any way senator claiming ironically the original and warranted peaceful protests began in response to the equally appalling injustice administered in the George Floyd incident, which I am also nauseated by in both cases whether it's a mob or. In individual recognize that Americans are innocent until proven guilty and there is no such thing is three justice. We cannot have people taking justice into their own hands. However, this is what appears to be happening in Wildwood toss with the harassment of officer Mensa we've also since we're we're also seeing closed door secret meetings in Milwaukee an attempt to discredit and marginalized chief Morales who has done a masterful job of respecting the. Right to protest while also protecting private citizens and private property officer Mensa, Chief Morales, and the police departments in the fifth Senate district, which is why would hosted Milwaukee Must Alice. Brookefield growled have my full support is they fight as they fight for law and order in our communities? Again, those are fairly strong statements and a credit to those who at least put them out. Now, what does the Mayor Rob Hutton who represents? A portion of Senator Kwang district I believe he's a little bit to the west of a wobbly Tosa mostly in Brookvale Rob Hutton statement Saturday night group of rioters followed through weeks, threats and attacked a wobble Tosa police officer at his home though the protests of the last few weeks have been largely described as fees peaceful. A brief lots social media reveals multiple threats to find to find officers and their families and their homes. Now, the that Rob Hutton mix is very good. Many people have had their addresses plastic out there on social media and there've been calls to go after these police officers at their homes. Interestingly, the media's choosing not to report this just as much of the coverage deletes some of the vulgar vile statements that are being hurled as reporters who have an agenda try to sanitize their coverage. As I said, the Mayor of Alba Tosa Denis McBride put out a statement as well McBride Waking. Up Now to the fact that he's presiding over a city that is falling apart and going to hell as he sits back and fiddles Allah Niro. You do at least hope. That perhaps. This is an indication Tim McBride in some of the others at the mollycoddling that they have done. Is simply fueling these people who want to burn while we're Tosa doubt. And until. This horrible behavior which has not been peaceful for weeks is stopped when the law is being violated, and until there, it's a commitment to protect all people in the Tosa including protesters. This will get worse anyway here's the statement that was issued by McBride who met later earlier today with the police chief last night approximately fifth, this is issued yesterday last night approximately fifty people assembled at the private residence of although police officer Joseph, and again for those of you again, there's a little bit of lack of clarity here the home zone by his girlfriend. There couple he's there a lot. I. Don't know if he's there full time. been described it as his residence if he's residing there a good chunk of the time but. You know there are a couple that not yet married but. But. Home is actually owned. By the girlfriend, but there are a couple together and that's Whether, it's been this back and forth as to WHO's house. It is anyway engaged in a protest began to vandalize his home officer Mensa tried to engage in a dialogue with them, but was physically assaulted as he retreated into his home. Armed protesters approached the rear door and one fired a shotgun round into his back door. The WATTO's police department received assistance in dispersing the crowd from numerous neighboring agencies. The WP's investigation into this incident is ongoing in recent with us. Again, the mayor in recent weeks, various groups have protested in Wildwood Tosa. Demanding that officer met Mensa he fired the city of Tosa has always supported and protected the right to peaceful protests. Last night's event was not a peaceful protest. It was criminal behavior. If the perpetrators of this crime criminal behavior are identified, they will be prosecuted to the fullest extent allowed by law no one including me believes that while what does not have a history of following through and prosecuting people who engage in this kind of behavior like the numerous slaps on the wrist that have occurred after behavior at Mayfair back to McBride stated. Tomorrow morning that turned out to be this morning I will be meeting with the police chief, the city administrator, the city attorney, and other city officials to determine which steps could be taken to ensure that officer men say is fully protected and the criminal behavior of this kind will not happen. Again, I would interject and ask why we had to have gunshots in order for that to occur back to the statement on July fourteenth the Common Council and I issued a statement asking the police chief and city administrator to facilitate the transition of officer Mensa from WPRO. That's interesting. Rated his skype firing nevertheless, every common council member and I support our police department. That's a non sequitur. You don't fire innocent people when if you support them every common council member and I support officer men's right to due process under the US Wisconsin Constitution and is a police officer to the additional due process protections found in the Wisconsin statutes under Wisconsin Law, the decision as to whether he. will be fired as demanded. A citizen complaint belongs solely to the WTO police and fire commission, and that commission must be given a full opportunity to carry out its deliberations. During this difficult time, I ask all members of the community to reflect on their personal responsibility to engage in responsible and civil behavior. That is an obnoxious statement from that mayor who has been behaving irresponsibly while Tosa other than these protesters. He's calling on the people of Alberto said it grow up? People the Volvo. Tosa. Most of them had behavior this just five. Now, more than ever, it is essential that we all work together to heal a divided community on other words. The other side can yell and scream and curse out and fired gunshots but every else's supposed to keep their lips zipped while you the mayor hide under your desk and refuse to protect your community. This will require patience and understanding that though changes must occur they can only occur during the functioning of a democratic processes processes and not through violence that was the statement issued. By, the mayor of all Tosa Denis McBride so anyway, that's where we stand on all of this. Again, I will update you on our weather situation. We have a tornado warning in effect Racine County until four, forty, five, very strong storm moving through the year. It's part of a larger track of storms that many of your network right now in the southeastern corner of the state.

Standing up for gay this is the mark belling late afternoon show on news talk eleven thirty. San. Drove observational skills will notice that much variance pouring rain right down pretty much the farther south you are. The likely are that you're getting storms have a tornado warning in effect for about fourteen more minutes for Racine county a part of this strong line of storms. It's mostly in the southern half of the urea kind of shoving right now over toward Lake Michigan part of a big glop of rain. That's over the entire region. We spent the first portion of today's program discussing. The situation in Waubosa said, which has been. Under siege is community even before the George Floyd situation occurred, there's been trouble at Mayfair off and on forever. The been situations in which the police in Waldo toys have been criticized because they've tried to keep order. Following the George Floyd. Situation. Shooting that occurred at Mayfair months ago that was not thought to be controversial at the time in fact. You Go back to win that initial incident occurred at me in which. A gang. Charged for the mall and was being disruptive police responded somebody fired a shot at a cop and the police officer shot back and killed the suspect. There was no criticism at the time. It was only after the George Floyd situation when some black lives matter protesters were looking for some cops somewhere in the state of Wisconsin to make an issue of. That decided to stumble an officer Mensa. Given the fact that he had to earlier police shootings during his career. And they've been raising a stink in Waubosa ever since and. Walmart Tulsa, is. A diverse community, but predominantly white with a lot of people over there that are liberal very much in some respects like madison liberals who pose for their politically correct holy pictures and they have been bending over backwards to people who don't follow any of the rules that people in Walmart Tulsa. Are compelled follow. While Matosa like most liberal could be entities is very anal with the way they run their public. You've got to citizen comments restricted to a certain period of time, and you can link talk for a couple of minutes and so on. Well, they would never allow a resident of Abu to get away with having twenty five people yelling and screaming right during the middle of the meeting and break it all of the roads, but they allowed these demonstrators to do this. They have taken a hands off approach as demonstrators have black traffic and some of the busiest three to the state of Wisconsin. They have been targeted and demanded that officer Joseph Mensah. For that incident that occurred at Mayfair even though as they say, no authority anywhere has ruled that it was a wrongful shooting. As I explained at the time once they rolled over caved in and did this, they merely guaranteed that the pressure would increase. The next thing that would be demanded would be that officer to be thrown in jail the police chief Gerry Weber who's a very good chief. would be fired. They'd next would demand that police be taken out of mayfair altogether, and after that was done, they would try to shut down the entire mall that was my prediction and so far every one of those dominoes has started to fall. It is hopeful that while Tosa will finally start growing. So backboard and try to restore order and community and understand that these are not peaceful protesters but they're insurrectionist who want to destroy community that many of them do not live it. Will Save. Anyway I mentioned chief Weber. Absent. Here in any kind of commentary over the last several days, it's been any comment from the police chief. Now. I. Know Berry Weber the police chief. He's very outspoken. And he's very responsive. The fact that he has not talking means he has been told by Mayor McBride that he can't talk. I believe they're going to try to get Weber to reside again, they're doing everything in their power to appease these protesters in the same way the black lives matter and other liberals wanted chief Morales fired in Milwaukee and got their way they weber out and wobble Tosa. This message is not being lost on the protesters when they keep getting everything that they want, and after that, there's GonNa be a demand that. While what the police have no presence at Mayfair Mall at all and I suspect that they will cave into that as well until Mayfair realizes excuse me while Tosa realizes that the pressure here is coming for people for whom this will never be enough. They don't like police they don't like authority they don't like law and order. And, that's what they're hanging up. He has and that's what's been driving all of this. The fact that they have infiltrated the common council with some insurrectionist type Alderman like heather. Cool. Makes matters worse but it's not an excuse for the rest of the Common Council or the mayor who ought to know better. So anyway I think it's interesting that we haven't heard from chief Webber and I know that's not by chief Weber's choice. It's got to be because the mayor is told chief Weber that he can't talk. So Mayor McBride wants to take charge of the entire police department. Then this is all on him. There's another part of the story that WanNa comment on before I move forward. I mentioned in my commentary earlier, my criticism of the that while all of this was going on there was no police presence, the only tops at the scene. Of the home of officer Mensa and his girlfriend when they were under siege officer Mensa and his girlfriend. There was no. So Police Department there at all. I would love to ask the chief whether or not. They have been ordered to stand down by the mayor and city administrator I suspect. Yes. But they weren't there. When you have a terrifying situation like this that you don't have to I, think police should have been there in riot gear. Just. As a deterrent in case they saw something like a gunshot being fired, they could be ready to respond. But it said there was no one there which of course emboldened the protesters. People always well, that's just going to inflame them know what inflames them as knowing they can get away with this kind of behavior. which generally stops them is when they think that they might get arrested when they're caught breaking the law. I chose in my discussion earlier. Debacles hero use him as my Guinea pig. Do. You know. Anything about officer Mrs, his girlfriend who is the homeowner here Do you know where Well I am not going to name her even though these names social media and so on. Are All over the place because she doesn't need any more crap herself, but she did sort of identify herself and. I've mentioned a couple of times in the past. What she does for a living she's a police officer in Milwaukee. I am told that it was Milwaukee police that responded to the situation in Wildwood Tosa I. Because of lack of confidence that while the Tosa police we're going to show up at all. That's how hands off the police department has been forced to be by the leftist leadership evolved Tosa. Now, I believe that in Milwaukee despite the fact that the fire and police commission got rid of chief, Morales his trying its best determine Milwaukee's police department into a bunch of flowers children. The police officers in Milwaukee will respond when they believe that there is a chance that one of their own is being killed. And there was a very good chance that that's what this thing was going to shake up to be. Once you saw that at least one gunshot was fired into the home. So the statement the camera while the police that multiple jurisdictions responded Milwaukee police responded I believe because they were asked to respond by people in the home who are isolated. So for those of you who live in Oiseaux, on your hands doing nothing for the last number of weeks understand you have a terrible city council understand that your city could fall apart. Unless you grow up and realize that an orderly society we must maintain order and I'm not talking about bringing in this. Gestapo for crying out loud Milwaukee. Kept a lid on things that while the saints kept a lid on things even Madison is demonstrated once decides to keep a lid on things that it is capable of doing. So but it starts with empowering Your Police Department to enforce the law on its starts with understanding that many. Not all but many of these agitators including those that are throwing rocks through the windows of people's homes are not peaceful protesters but our insurrectionist hell bent on breaking the law in the same way that number of the people who continue to cause mayhem inside of Mayfair are not people protesting there people that are out there trying to simply break the law because they realize that Matosa has become a community that allows them to do so. We will move out. I got another interesting story for you in a weird way. It's related in the way it's not. We have been commenting on over just the last several months the absolute silencing of any number of people who have a dissenting point of view really at any of these social issues that we have. I'm going to share with you a story about how coach he's not even a teacher. got fired. From a local school district. Because he has dared to express political beliefs which have been critical of the black lives matter movement. I'm going going to kill you yet which community it is because I'm GonNa, make you stick around. But I will tell you that it is not the city of the walkie. It's a community whose. Letter starts from the first half of the alphabet what data guess. Got To, tell you what he said. Talk Eleven thirty W I S and mark late afternoon show as we. and. Mentioning we have. Strong lot of storms that are moving to a big chunk of really severe weather's moving out of the lake but there's still a lot of rain activity. In fact, it's pretty much raining from west at Madison all the way over to Lake Michigan and the southern half of the stayed the strongest portions of those storms are to the east and all of the severe weather advisories. That we have in effect are now out, we still have a thunderstorm watch until seven o'clock tonight but no more warnings in effect at least as of the moment thunderstorms ending tonight. Then clearing skies with a low of sixty five beautiful weather for the rest of the week tomorrow partly sunny high seventy, nine Wednesday sunny high eighty one, Thursday partly sunny high eighty, two, Friday partly sunny. With, a high of eighty two Friday hammers chance more. Storms coming into the area. In the United States right now if you have political viewpoints that are right of center and you express them on social media, you can lose your career. That's just reality. My advice would be not post diplomatically viewpoints on social media if you don't WanNa, lose your career. But I also understand in saying that that you are allowing social media to simply be a forum for only one side of the discussion as were essentially conceding that. Americans do not have a right to their political opinions. Any more During all of the other crackdowns that have occurred the tearing down of statues and everything else that have occurred over the last several months of liberals. Destroying everything that was once America. The right people have diverse points of view has also been shot from the individual perspective. You could take the path of least resistance and not at least post things on social media where the entire world can see them re post and raise a stink. Or? You can stick to the gun your guns, and hope that somebody's going to have your back. When they come after you. The following the story of it apparently opinionated person who's out there in the community. He's the coach at Germantown High School. Germantown is one of the most conservative communities, all of southeastern Wisconsin there. You are not safe from the politically correct school administration. The Superintendent Germantown reside they've got a new one. And he apparently is somebody who is making it clear that if you have political viewpoints that somebody objects to you and the right of center that your career in Germantown is over. Now. In preparation for this segment, I common contacted the Germantown Principal Athletic Director and. School Superintendent and none of them have chosen to respond assume that that means that they don't want to responded. They couldn't care less if the folks Germantown realized that. Somebody says something in Germantown, the black lives matter does it like German towns going to fire that? I'm not going to defend the comments that were made by the individual teacher than to say that you can say things like this from the left and not have to worry at all. There's almost no limit as to how you can be an out and out Marxist. You. Didn't damn police officers. You can get down white people you could talk about white privilege. If you say something though that offends someone on the left, they're going to claim that simply the offensiveness of that speech is enough that your done. Though the person who contacted me as the individual who has fired, he has not a teacher. In High Schools in Wisconsin, most of the coaches well, let's not right. Public High Schools Teachers have the first crack at a coaching job but. When there aren't enough teachers to fill a spurt certain kind of thing. Some non teachers will come as often. For example, you'll see private schools can hair they want but Santa Public School. The. Guy Coaches the defensive backs might be a non teacher or somebody who's an assistant gymnastics coach might have experience in that sport or they might not be a teacher. So but most of the head coach is still teachers not all not all their you know German too. There's a famous police officer who's a basketball coach around the area anyway WanNa make it clear. This guy did not get fired from a teaching position he's not a teacher he was an assistant swimming coach. His name is Tim D'Amico. I'm going to share with you what he told me. He also sent this to numerous other talk show hosts and others, and the story has been covered elsewhere as well. I've been an assistant coach with the Germantown Girls Swimming and diving team for the last three years. The upcoming season was going to be my fourth I grew up in Germantown and graduated from there myself and twenty eleven for the last five years I had been coaching club for two different private club organizations in my time as a coach have worked with kids and. Never once had a personal a professional complaint against me on Thursday July ninth. I shared a post to my facebook page comparing the KKK to the organization not the statement black lives matter because of course, I agree with that statement. But with the political organization is not something that I am a concert that is a conservative can or will ever support and let me interject. I am of the opinion that a lot of people do not know that black lives matter is not only a slogan is also a group the group black lives matter is a Marxist organization that has radical points of view. I believe many people who say the term black lives matter do not realize they are affiliated with a radical group. Many people are bothered for example that the NBA puts black black lives matter around the court. The NBA has said they're not endorsing any particular rueful. That is the name of a group. Nonetheless, it can create confusion. This guy is saying, look my criticism here is of the organization by criticism is not of the statement black lives matter back to his comments to me around eleven thirty that day I got a voice mail from the athletic director. Her name is Sarah. At Germantown High School I should point on I contacted Sarah. You know she has not responded to be. So if she doesn't like the spin that's being offered here, it's because she has chosen not to come out and defend. Wyatt is that she sought their sanctioning people for their political points of view I was that by Fulltime Day job and unable to count to call her until later in the afternoon when I did connect with her she told me there was a post for me on. Social media going around that concern to them. She explained the post to me and I explained my stance on the post. She made it sound like there was some sort of outrage in the community about me and the post that I shared little that I know the post was sent to each school board member and the principal Joel Farren from a single person that doesn't even live in Germantown. They live in west bed. Now let me interject this of course, is the danger in social media. Somebody could be a teacher and you know Massachusetts and somebody could read it in Anchorage Alaska, and the next thing you know they're going to contact everybody in Massachusetts and the rest of the world the social media of course knows no geographic limits. So one person saw this in West bend in Lake said at everybody in Germantown and tried to create a you know a big thing about it and apparently succeeded back to the evil. When I was talking with Sarah Again, she's the athletic director. She mentioned other people they saw on facebook that I had shared or posted myself that concerned the district, some of the post robot, the recent rioting and looting most having firearm references as I am an Abbott and open Second Amendment Supporter, and concealed carrier I might mention. So as about half of Germantown, I always will advocate for responsible and legal ownership of firearms I of course explained. To her that I have never had my firearm with me while on school property or at school related events, regardless sheet nor the human resources representative that was also on the call seem to really care. She told me that she did want to let me know that they will need to look into this further and they will get back to me as soon as they can let me interject I wonder how often somebody's made a lefty comment up. There in the Germantown School district that they have gotten this kind of treatment at again Germantown, say very conservative community. But as again when you have school officials who are essentially leftist hacks, they're out there laying for anybody who might be right of center, and if some people say something that might be deemed offensive, they're going to use that as their opportunity to sanitize purge the district's from one more conservative thought. This it problem is endemic across public. Education as we have hacks like the individuals who were up there, Germantown who will look for reasons to get rid of people perhaps in some cases rightly. But it simply is never applied the other way. There is nobody out there trolling around facebook to see if we can't find somebody who says something bad about the military are bad about the police are bad about some other group that can serve it as my life back to the guys email. A week later on July sixteenth. Sarah called me back again. This is Sarah. You know she's the athletic director the you're stuck with up there in Germantown who has chosen not to respond to me to put out her version of events. She did inform me that they will not be renewing my contract and I will no longer be a coach at Germantown high school if I'm going to be honest I was. Rushed but not surprised given the world that we live in today I asked her to answer a question for me. I asked her if she had ever had any complaints from athletes, parents or the Head Coach Laurie About My coaching Sarah told me that you have always been. You've always had great reviews and positive feedback but we as a district need to be sure we are on the right side of history. Now again, this is the guy statement to me. He's putting words in Sarah Units. I don't know if she said that or not if she did. What side of history as Germantown high school trying to be on the leftist side of history. The shutting people up side of history. Again. However, it's the site of history that the school boards and communities like this tolerate when they allow goon squads to run around to get rid of people because of their points of view. Back to the email, I, came to the conclusion that I am being fired not for my inability to be a great coach but because my political stance doesn't fit with the prevailing narrative I'm a conservative gun over. WHO supports president trump and I will never stop supporting what I believe in justice saved my job. Sarah asked me what story would you like told when people ask why you won't be coaching anymore? I was a bit confused and ask that clarify what she meant. See see what's happening here. What line is Germantown going to put out because Sarah Nodal doesn't have the guts or personal integrity to say we got rid of the guy because we don't like his political point of view back to the email. She said that sometimes coaches would like to tell people they are leaving to focus more on there fulltime work. It'll be with their families. They said, no anyone asks you about why I am not coaching anymore. I expect you as an educator at a school district employees to tell them the truth you tell them that you fired me because of my political views. This is why I'm no longer coaching. You decided this not me she seemed a little surprised by that and the conversation was basically over at that point she probably did not. Imagine that the guy would end up telling me the story and people would know that Joel and the principal and Sarah Sarajevo the athletic director and the brand new superintendent up there in Germantown are running around firing people by their political point of view. But I'm looking for cover story. So they don't hack off people in a conservative community like Germantown and again, for those of you who live in the community, you're the only ones who in the end have any control over this you're either going to tolerate this crap or you're not. We clearly see that liberals are out to get anybody right of center and they're very emboldened right now. And, I keep getting people asking me, what can I do? What can I do? What can I do? Well, we can stop taking it. And when you see people like Sarah Universal and Joel Farren dishing. Out You have a right to demand to know why in the world they're doing this and you have a right to go after them. Because leftist bullies can dish it out but they cannot take it. They've never shown an ability to take it just as those school officials were being asked to come back into the classroom considered themselves martyrs even though nobody shooting inside their houses such as occurring with the Wa. So police officer back to the. Email. I asked Sarah about three times before she finally sent me the copies of the emails that I requested from looking at the emails I should point out that he has supplied to me. The emails, he received an an open records request discussing his case, and indeed this thing was bad at around around the highest levels of the Germantown School Administration in which they all express concern when they saw the commentary in which he compared the attitude of k a racist organization with the attitudes of Alum Organization that he believes also has racist views. That is the man's political viewpoint back to his piece. It sickens me that there are people into that. These are the people that are in charge of our kids education from all different angles. They are telling kids that you must believe this way or you will lose your job if you don't believe in what we believe that you are a racist. Given the world that we live in today I am not at all surprised that I lost a job with a school district considering that I am such a strong conservative and open about that publicly. But I did feel like I needed to make this known that the cancel culture is attacking more than just conservative TV or talk show hosts. This culture is coming after anyone with opposing view and we need to stop this. and. Again, it comes from Tim to make who all he was as an assistant swimming coach up in Germantown High School and they got him. This is how deeply this is reaching into society and people think, wow, this is only milwaukee. It's only Madison, this happened in Germantown. And it's GONNA stand to Germantown unless the school board in Germantown decides that it doesn't want people who are running around like this. Trying to got people's careers because they don't like their political views to get away with it. Unless as I suspect the Germantown School Board was involved it because many of the school board members even in conservative communities rather liberal and when they get an opportunity to impress their liberal friends, they will do. So we have across our society right now which hunting going on. The only thing most of us can do is a make sure we're all aware of it and be when you live in the community what occurs you can speak up and make it clear the not agree with it I do understand that many people are now fearful of speaking up even in Germantown. For being on the wrong side of political bigots like Sarajevo here just tell Alexa Google home or Siri, home pot to play eleven thirty. N. on Iheartradio then sit back and enjoy the experts. His. Thirty wins at mark. belling late afternoon show. Back let's do a right now I'm going to give them the summer cash contests text in word for the five o'clock hour. Again, we at the moment, do not have any weather advisories in effect other than a severe thunderstorm watch for the whole region until seven o'clock at night. Drawing storms have been moving through the area and it looks like the severe component of it is moved out over the lake. Again, the word for this hour is bills B.. I L. S. bills you have between now and six o'clock to texting bills the two, hundred, hundred, you get a text confirming entry plus iheartradio Info Standard Data message rates apply in the station contests since we interrupted a commercial break and. I'm not sure if that. Goes to the disaster to the of the online feed or not. Anyway. So we think everybody heard it but because it came in the middle adjust quickly stressed this might be I mean obviously it's something there was a shooting. But. It might have nothing to do with security of the president but. It did happen right outside the White House where law enforcement shot a suspect. Outside the White House fence I think I initiated early that it was inside the perimeter was outside the perimeter of the White House but in that area where they maintain security kind of this buffer area that's in there and the only reason I got noticed because president trump was delivering his daily briefing and the Secret Service took him out the room. When this incident occurred wanted to make sure we don't have some big huge thing coming on and so on and once they realized that it was simply involving the one person the president resumed his briefing. So we don't know much more than that. But nobody was ever close to the president or inside the White House or anything of that nature and. We'll find later probably more about in the president said law enforcement will be doing a briefing a little bit later later on I spent a good chunk of this hour talking about how somebody and I think the whole point of the story is that he didn't have a big job. He's just an assistant swimming coach, not even a teacher. But for posting, this is out criticism of black lives matter and he says he's one of those people that goes on social media and he's trying his political points of view is a conservative big supporter of Second Amendment Open Carry, etc.. Somebody did like the fact that he compared black lives matter the movement he stresses not just somebody who believes that statement the group black lives matter to the KKK both as being racist. Organizations. Now whether you agree with that or not, it's a political point of view. There was time. In, which just about every teacher that was out there had politic. No teachers were in the middle I I school in College I had a teacher who said he was a communist. But he sat it. It wasn't like it was hidden or he was sneaking he was it economics professor in college. He made clear that he was a comment is in terms of is economic viewpoints even back. Then there are a lot of lefties around. There are also some people that were right wingers Ed. At the time. The whole point of going to college even high school was you would attempt to encourage aggressive and vigorous dialogue. There was no idea. Considered too extreme. Angela Davis fresh out of prison spoke to my college when she was there. OUT NOW MARXIST STAND Think we had think we had a guy from the John Birch Society of about on campus. Etiquette. A political viewpoint that you could imagine and you wanted to expose kids to this as well. Give them every idea that they could let them hear all of this stuff. And decide for yourself what you think about things to hear something ghetto like question and criticize it now. The only allowed political viewpoint is from the left and really from the fire left, they can say anything they want to go to any extremes they want and break any laws they want. Anyone who dared speak out from the right is shutdown silenced and often fired. This, has clearly been going on this self sanctioning within public schools for many years over the years I've shared with you Eddie, number of stories from people who tell me Mark, a teacher I've conservative but nobody and none of the other teachers know what I can't let them know what I think just the ostracism. How you just outed. is so terrible. We now realize given some of the thoughts of so many young people in their twenties and how incapable they are of critical thinking it started to show up when you saw that they felt that they were threatened by speech that made them uncomfortable literally. So incapable of arguing ideas that they felt threatened by hearing an idea, they didn't like rather than Marshall up all of their resources to. Argue against it. This is what happens when they'd been in an ideological bubble where they've been presented a lot of crap by unprofessional leftist hacks, which unfortunately is most people who work within the public schools and we now see how bad it's gotten well now it's getting any given even worse and not even a teach not even anybody who ever expresses political points of view in terms of dealing with the kids guy expresses a common b. m.. N., Germantown may be the most conservative humidity. We avid southeastern Wisconsin. They can still fire him and the school board up there is okay with that. That's chilling. A guy was running around wearing a sheet or anything for Heaven Sakes. No again by individual. Comment he has nothing good comes posted on social media as. One of the few talk show host in America who virtually never uses it I just say how many people? We can put things down in writing any kind of nuance if you're trying to say something clever doesn't come out and. I could at least explain I have to be careful with everything that I say allowed. But at least I have the ability to explain whereas in a one or two sentence post their facebook thing you can't lay out all of the reasoning for your thing. I. Would say nothing good. Come some posting on social media if you're right of center but. That doesn't make this right. Where the silencing is going at, you can shut up a swimming couch in Germantown just for criticizing Blm a movement. that. Spent until they changed their website pretty open about its ideology. It's a NEO Marxist organization. And again, he's smart enough that he separating people who simply agree that black lives matter which he is one of. From the agenda of the organization if you can't criticize an organization where we are New York state is trying to disband the National Rifle Association a state government trying to make a political organization shutdown. But in Germantown Wisconsin, you can't even criticize another political organization without losing your southern coach job. Again. There isn't much that somebody and find a lack or Seattle Washington can do about that. But if you live in, Germantown you don't have to take it. And you don't have to tolerate a school board. That is empowering people to behave and there is no word that is better than this ideological goons. If there's some. I I have criticized the incredibly overwhelming leftist agenda teachers. I don't have a problem with an individual teacher. Happy that agenda if the head swimming coaches some radical lefty. Keeps his or viewpoints out of the swimming coaching. That's fine. Again, if the guy was out there as a swimming coach shooting off his mouth about the political, this data that ninety seven times saying, okay fine. If you're a liberal I'm not gonNA. Let you do the diaper what that that's their Fred. We're losing control of our, country our society at our freedoms. And when it gets all the way to Germantown. And School Board members are okay with this. And athletic directors are worried about being on the right side of history deciding for example, just exactly what side of history she's GonNa put the swimming team. That's not a free country. Anymore. It is happening everywhere. And it is going to be most easily defeated at the grassroots at the bottom at an individual local level. Now, I'm not expressing any confidence in anybody in Germantown is going to do anything about this. The school superintendents school board I asked that all of them given a copy of the email questions that I put it. I heard from none of them meeting none of them even bothered to want to defend what it is that they're doing out there. But we can at least know. That Germantown. High School is not a safe space. For individuals who have viewpoints other than those sufficiently liberal that they pass muster of the new superintendent principal in. Atlantic director out there trolling around the Internet to Ferret out anybody that they might be a closet racist. Germantown. I mean this isn't sure with Germantown. Do these shows and you just wonder how these things settle out there I. I can tell you in the comments that I get from. And by continuing belief that trump is going to win reelection that he's under polling because so many people know they can't say aloud with their political viewpoints are that many people are furious about this? But the fact that people are afraid to speak aloud about it also means that many people are afraid to speak up an object to it. Imagine if Sarah Nota was on the receiving end of some of the gloom like behavior that she dished out. And if the principal up, there was on the receiving end of getting a little bit of crap from people who didn't like. The ideological censoring that he is doing from somebody who would dare to criticize an organization that as I said, is outmoded embraced Marxism. Add as made clear, its hatred of officers, all of the. Come. From Theory Specialists Memory McFarland. San Up for Milwaukee this is the mark belling late afternoon show. On News Talk Eleven thirty WS. In the last segment, we discussed the situation in Germantown and covets. Swimming teacher swimming coach was fired from his job there. We're going to be posting that umbrella dot com when I received, but don't look for a now. We'll have it up sometime after the show is over tonight for those to. Check it out looks like College football is done for twenty twenty, the big ten and five other conferences are moving toward. I love this trying to move the football season to the spray. But everybody's like doing. What we can't do it now, we'll try to shove into the future so you end up with. The NBA season winding down now in the playoffs starting in a few days Major League baseball trying to somehow work through this short and season. So they can get to the playoffs the NFL saying, well, we won't have a preseason, but we're going to try to have regular season and I'll college football, which if you understand maybe I should give a little bit of background here for those of you not aware. College football carries the athletic budgets of almost all major universities, most universities at least the public ones are set up the way Wisconsin. Wisconsin. The University Sports Program does not get tax support other than. The buildings had facilities themselves. Are publicly owned the bonding issued by the public, but the actual budgets paying the coaches, etc. Paying for the travel most of these university sports departments are self sustaining. In other words, all the money they make off of the revenue producing sports carries zillions of non revenue producing sports. For example, track produces very little revenue. Cross country produces very little revenue. At UW, Madison. Men Slip, ball produces the bulk of the revenue followed by men's basketball men's hockey is slightly positive cash flow. I, believe women's volleyball is slightly this several years ago women's volleyball I think slightly above water women's basketball was kind of a push to under and the others of course all. cost the buddy. In other words they make all the money off of men's football and a couple of the other sports but men's football is by far the biggest REPUTA- generator because the TV rights of the greatest add. Wisconsin, they sell eighty thousand tickets. So, if they don't have a football season, it is a backbreaker. On, the other hand, almost all of these universities are in liberal college towns at the universities themselves very very liberal added as liberals who have been quick to cancel things because of the corona virus. Best the NFL sees it is still on. But College football's about to pull the plug out talking about holding the thing. In the spray. They keep believing that there's a silver bullet on the calendar here. And the position that I have been taking is. There isn't now the one thing I say on all my discussions I'd Corona virus is I could be wrong. I share which fell she, and some of the lefties would say that before they issue these broad statements because it is a new virus. To other Kuroda viruses in very similar to. Some diseases that we've had in the past, but because it is new, we don't know how it will play itself out. We also don't know if there's a vaccine how effective it will be. We also don't know is this a virus that we developed? What hundred percent resistance to after getting at wants maybe eighty percent or not? Is it like the common cold or you just keep get the damn thing over and over and over again or? Is it like many other viruses that once you get you develop such strong immunity that it is very rare that you don't know. We also don't really know how many people have actually been infected by it. Most believe it is way higher than the numbers that are given because until recently, we hardly tested anybody only tested people when they were sick. And Corona virus does not make most people sec. especially if you're young usually you don't know you have it. So there's a lot of things we don't know. On the other hand were now in the United States about five months into the real crush of it. Probably eight months into how long it's been here. But five, you know it was march things went crazy. Sir About five months. And what seems to me to be happening is this. We add that initial wave and April at mart late March into April literally. And after that, the thing calmed. At his bed at a relatively steady level ever since. The media often miss reports because it's tries to middle mislead people as to what's going on right now in the united. States. We do not have a spike. But number as Laura Ingram is struggling to point out. She's pounded the table of this. The number of hospitalizations right now are at the same level that they were the beginning of June. We had a somewhat increase in hospitalizations over the last several weeks, but it was relatively modest as the virus move from the northeast the other parts of the United. States but the hospitalization rate remained relatively low across the country just as it has. Wisconsin, where we're generally in the range of the two hundred, three hundred per day and have been for buds. What we have seen an increase is the number of positive tests. The media keeps calling that cases, which of course, is misleading given that some people can test positive seven times in a row that's not seven different cases and. If someone test positive on the first day they do the follow up tests and they'd has negative. They still count them as a case. C., N. With this inflated number but the biggest reason that they're the increase in the number of. Positive test is because we're doing way more tests. Still. It's to me almost that arguable and some people on my side on the right WanNa argue at the ones who want to see the corona virus as it exists. It seems to be arguable that corona virus is not going away. I don't believe it's going away. I think it's possible. It will never go away. I didn't say that's likely I don't know. I have tried. Unlike. All of these people on the left and the media to have a little bit of humility here in dealing with science that we do not yet know they always follow the science follow the. Yet they themselves don't follow any sites. They make wild statements about the future based on nothing. But I think it is very possible that this virus is going to be like many many other viruses that are out there. That exists in the human population that simply never go away. That it just becomes one of the many types of things, human conditions that we have to deal with. Bdo has never gone away. To deal with it. AIDS and HIV is still out there. You have to deal with it. Maizels rebel chickenpox. Those things are all still out there. Polio. In fact, it is out there. The common cold is out there. And then things that are a whole lot more serious cancer diabetes. Alzheimer's numerous. Other conditions generally aren't thought to be contagious they're out there as well. But certainly a far greater threat and far more. Deadly, in terms of their mortality. So my belief is that. There's a good chance that again, I didn't say like because I don't know that this thing going to be with us for the long haul I would say like. For decades it's also possible. That we're going to develop strong immunity as people get it that the experience that we saw in Sweden where they didn't do anything. So their numbers initially were much higher at initially and now later on are much lower that people in Sweden who got don't seem to be getting it again or if they are, it's only a tiny minority of them if indeed. Once you get. You develop an immunity, it would be reason to be positive. About, the long term prognosis of this and It would be reason to think that we should end all of these lockdowns and just let whoever is going to get a get it. So we could be done with the damn thing rather than have people be Dying for the next twenty years and cancelling things for twenty years but. While we don't know I think. There's very little reason to believe that the virus isn't going to be around in December at least as big bigger problem as it is now and I don't think it'll be any less of a problem in March or April. Next year when they WANNA start up college football again. That it is now. Now. Maybe it will fade away. Some people say what if there's a accede? I've been throwing cold water on the vaccine talk, for Buds. Most vaccines. Are Between, thirty and seventy percent effective. That's not a bad number. I mean if you can lessen your chances of getting any particular thing by fifty percent, get all do it. I mean, they talked about red meat because it might give you a nine percent better chance of avoiding heart disease for Heaven's sakes fifty percents not a bad number. But that does mean that fifty percent of the people get the vaccine are still GonNa get it. and. I can't think of a vaccine out there other than the ones a kids are being given because they don't have any say in it. That more than half the population gets half the population doesn't get the flu shot. And the flu's more commonly this. So I my point is. I. Don't think everybody's GonNa get it and I don't even think half the people are GonNa get. So. If it's fifty percent effective and only half the people get it, it means that we've reduced the numbers twenty, five percent. Now, that's good. One in four people not getting it that really eliminate lessons the spread because you know you're likelier to get this. If you're around somebody who has it in the fewer people who have it the less likely it is to be spread. It's not like nothing but to think that this is the silver bullet that solves everything. I just don't think it is. Sober College football says while we're GONNA put you to sprague. At some point and I keep asking this question and I never get it from anybody who for any of these shutdowns what becomes the point at which you just throw up your hands and say. We're going to press on with life even though the viruses there. Dave michaels thinks the election of ever. I don't agree with that I. think that a Joe Biden get himself elected president the left is going to be so empowered to shut down things forever. Now say if Biden wins he has to have a decent enough economy and then He'll at all of this stuff ed and many people point out that when we had the swine flu two, thousand, nine, Obama was the president and we did nothing then Fauci of the same job that he then that he has now we didn't do anything and that by every level infected way more people than Kuroda virus seems to have infected. But we've cultural is inside people this terror in this fear? I, did. The mask wearing is the other thing. I mean. There are some people who believe that the summer months actually have slowed the spread of the virus that it's going to get worse in the cold. Have you it around wearing these masks everywhere as it is now? From the perspective though of College Sports. If they don't have college football they can't of anything else because college football produces all the revenue, the schools that don't have football like save marquette they have to get even more out of basketball and they make a bigger deal basketball and saw him because they don't have football to carry the freight and some of the smaller schools football doesn't even produce Eddie revenue because of your small schools that on TV and so on, and they have to get tax support and student fee support in order to keep these things going but for these. Colleague universities that have these massive infrastructures built on. Remember. They get thousands of students, scholarships, and all these sports I. Mean Track Scholarships in this scholars, every spout tennis, the all of these scholarships at the money all comes from college football. If you're not going to resume any of these things, you've interrupted the money flow to pay for all these scholarships to pay for the salaries and to pay the rent and all these facilities that they have and so on and. Use an example at horse racing, I mean the Kentucky Derby the was supposed to be held the first Saturday in May. They shoved it to the first Saturday in September Labor Day weekend. We'll do it. And as I said at the time, what do you think you're doing by informants? WHO's well, you're probably be go out enforement base that what what if people keep thinking three or four months something's going to be better. They. Said from the beginning, it's probably a year for a vaccine that's assuming vaccine knocks it out which nobody thinks it's GonNa. Happen why would any what in April or may have thought in September anything would be any better. So now, the Kentucky Derby well, we're GONNA have fifty thousand fads. You Watch the end up with no fans or maybe two or three thousand in there. They may as well have held the thing in. May. With nobody there because that's what they're gonNA end up with until you finally get to the point where people do what Elkhart Lake get over the weekend with an screw it we're gonNA hold the event and people want to come they wanna come and people are afraid of getting sick they don't have to come But we don't appear to be close to that. The less government is involved and the less liberal, the area, the more willing you see people to resume their regular lives. For example, Sturgis went on the could still go at isn't it? When does it break up Wednesday? Yeah they say the numbers it's impossible to get. It's not like you have attendants where they go through turnstiles. They're guessing there's about two hundred, fifty thousand people there which is about half. As normal, but you know these people camp outed. It's hard to figure out exactly how many people are there, but the numbers are down, but it's still massive. We'll sturgis. I can't believe sturgis allowed it to Kurds. How do you stop there are people who come here on a motorcycle it's not like it's not like we're going to have people at the Minnesota state lying shooting you if you try to cross the border. So that's something that's outside the control of regular old people they want to go on their border cycles and they wanna go to sturgis. Likewise the farther away you get from Milwaukee and shorewood the more people that are out there and companies that have just ignoring the mass requirement bars restaurants nobody has a mind stores. Nobody has a mind. It's only the chain stores that have a national policy that required them. You get into the city of Milwaukee and everybody's wearing masks everywhere because it's enforced. So where people are given the opportunity to choose their choosing. The schools are the crosshairs most parents want their kids to go back to school. But the schools themselves run liberals and the Liberals though water run the schools because the teachers are too lazy to go into work. Some of the teachers say they're afraid the same teachers who show no concern at all about a officer who's home is shot into. The last time that happened with a schoolteacher. So I just think that you're gonNA see the same issue come up with college basketball, which is gonNA have to start in a few months they're going to have to decide. Are we going to play you kiss this, pushing it back, pushing it back, pushing it back as for the professional sports they've tried to find this compromise of holding the events but not allowing fads. Nobody knows if they'll be able to do that. But again, it's not financially long-term. Sustainable. I predicted there will be no milwaukee box. Home Games this year. I mean they may play at home, but there will be no fans for the entire season. Now, I might be wrong and Dave michaels things after the election people will just throw their hands up on this. May Be. The only answer is this is going to stop doing bailouts and so on but the bailouts don't really help these giant sports leagues are in the billions of dollars of. Revenue, in so odd. We've allowed the fear of the virus to overcome every other. Decision to be made because of some sort of belief that this thing had an end date of say may fifteenth or June first that it was going to go away and. I'll grant you I many people on the right thought it was going to go away I. Think, it's not going to go away until everybody gets it. And it might be one of those things like the cold. Or even if you get it, you're going to get it again. Some people get colds five times a year. But I admit I don't know. If I'm looking for a positive on this. It's that most people who get this virus now don't even get sick and all. So many people who have tested positive I added. And that there have not been many cases that we know of where people have gotten more than once. But that doesn't mean you can't get a tour three years from now. where it would come back on you. Those are positives but it hasn't changed this response of. The businesses stoke offices are still closed can have college sports can have this can of that can the other thing? I always try to look at anything and ask myself where does this end and? I don't see anything that ends this. Including people who have a lot of money to lose. These universities, they was a fortune, not avocado football. Fortune. So the save liberals that want to shut everything down there. Also shutting down infrastructures that bankroll their universities. You'RE GONNA end up with numerous non revenue producing women's sports that have to be cancelled. Because no money to pay for it and these university. These are in universities that are saying declining enrollment anyway and I believe. A cultural change that's going to result in far fewer of the current teenagers wanted to go to college. After seeing a that, you can have your life run for expressing the wrong point of view and be the amount of debt that were piled up by the generation older than them that end up. Under employed I want to share with you. It's related to corona virus this back and forth between. President. Trump and the congress. On what kind of stimulus to be dot to be done and the President essentially tried to resolve the whole thing by issuing an executive order over the weekend? What goes through June. August sixteenth. sturgis goes through August sixteenth. I thought only when's okay. So that Saturday Saturday right? Yeah, Sunday. Yeah. Yeah. At it's from what I can tell I do people that go for three days then they come back and it's like it's it's not even like Harley fest where there's like, okay this day there's this every motorcyclists they go out there when they feel like it and then some going right three hundred and fifty miles away and camp out in the Black Hills for four days before they come back. I know I know people have been to surge the one thing they all say there's nothing to do with. You go there. You only go there to see all these other bikers and then you just kind of scatter around that. Do the stuff that you do I mean they go there and then they ride and they're they're all over the places where they are. It is a lot of just camp. How did you? Know. Or ride two hundred and fifty miles any ticket fire roadside motel inch check in there or just pull the backpack outed. Such and such I don't how did they come up with Sturgis? How did this did originally? Was it just some group decided to have something at it. Became unto itself don't look out. Don't look I. Hate Look things up with the PD because every time they say half the time you say Kapiti it turns out to be and then somebody calls up and says, Iran, we don't really care if you don't know look it up. That's the other thing that your generation feel this need to look all of these things up. Rhetorical. Questions are often best left unanswered. The thing that Google ruined the bargain guys can't argue about sports in bars somebody just looks at up and okay. That's the end of that. Now, what are we supposed? It just makes you more drunk because you just talk more rather than argue things out. Like I'll do my babe ruth hit more home runs one year than. Most teams hit combined. Some has gotta look that look what whether it's true or not whether it's true or not does doesn't mean that it's not a good thing to discuss before you know the stupid answer to it anyway. President trump challenge they do his plan a combination of the suspension of the payroll tax and four hundred a week for the unemployed. The Democrats wanted to do eight hundred for the unemployed and ignore the payroll tax this aside from the fact that trump is taking matters into his own hand just saying screw it.

Hello News Talk Eleven thirty Y S N. Mark belling. Late afternoon Shell interesting story out there Janice Dean may have seen on Fox. She's done a bunch of things including the weather on their I. Her inlaws died of covert and she said that she was essentially sanctioned by Andrew Cuomo the governor they're not allowed to talk about her experience including thoughts on medications available in so on. Keep an eye on that story I don't have time. To dive into it on my program today, I want to get into the debate back and forth between President trump aside from the fact that the Democrats wanted to spend three point, four, trillion dollars, which is it. That's twenty percent of GDP just on this round of stimulus in other words come up with a number. So over the top ridiculous, the trump can't say, yes to it. The second argument was if you where does the money go? Now, the first round of stimulus that I did. I defended. On the grounds that the alternative would have been in America economy that would have literally seized up. To go all of a sudden to twenty percent unemployment. They would have been no social service safety debt. And most American businesses would have gone under You would have literally seen a dust bowl of this country. If. That meant that in the short term, we had to artificially just give people a bunch of money to stop chaos. I could support it. The problem is doing it again and again and again, and again and again. To subsidize some of these businesses and individuals who are chosen to keep their lives on hold forever because of the virus. It's clearly inflationary and as you know, I, have been pounding the table for bud side the buying of gold and silver and I believe. That, we are going to see bad inflation in the United States by destroying the American value of the dollar and the dollar has been plummeting for weeks as you might know. But. If you are going to do another round here. Whether. It's the last letter not. Should. You again give people these huge unemployment check subsidies or should you go another route? The Democrats have thrown around the number of eight a week. President trump. Came up with a different proposal that he issued via executive order. Now, there's no way of knowing whether or not the executive order is league or not the Democrats would have to challenge and it takes a long time to get to the supreme. Court. But it is a way for the president to have acted arguing, look, the Democrats were not serious and their talks at me. What the president dead is that half of it and unemployment and the other half in suspending the payroll tax. This is important policy distinction. The Democrats didn't want to spend the payroll tax prompt dead. WHAT'S THE PAYROLL TAX? At somebody emailed me saying mark what is the payroll tax here that turbo all the time the payroll tax is not the income tax, the payroll taxes, the money that's tax for you. It goes to Social Security and Medicare. The payroll taxes paid half by you at half by your employer. This is not to be confused with your federal income tax. We call it the payroll tax that you'll often see on your paycheck. Fayka. Than Medicare. What is it all s? There's letters after it is what whatever it is but that's the payroll tax. The president wants to suspend the payroll tax to come up with half the stimulus. The other half would be an unemployment. Why is this a better approach? When. You gave out all these two reasons when you give out all of this money. In unemployment you have many workers who don't want to return to work. They have we saw the first route. So many many this did not affect people in Wisconsin because he's to lagging getting the unemployment checks out but many people are receiving more money not working than they ever made while working. In the meantime these companies therefore are hoping and praying their businesses stay closed because they'd rather be out unemployment. By providing that relief half in the form of eliminating the payroll tax. Remember issue a key point Obama to go who pays the payroll tax who did I say paid it paid half by the employer half by the employees. In words you take a look at your social security tax the about to help your check, your employer pays the other half. So whatever your amount withheld say it's two hundred, twenty six dollars to grab a number by. The employer kicks in two, hundred, twenty, six also. The employers not having to pay the payroll tax to the end of the year. This creates an incentive for them to reopen and bring people back. You've just lowered costs not only for the employees that gets the muddy. You've eliminated a huge chunk, a big tax that employers pay. This is like the employers bringing their pay employees back but not having to pay them as much money even though they're getting as much money, you're not sending that money to the government. If becomes an inducement for companies that were real close to bring a lot of people back to do it. To have it economic recovery it can't be permanently based at coming up with these funny bunny checks to pay people who are working. So if you're going to do a stimulus, it needs to be premised try to get the employers to hire and bring back. Rather than to permanently subsidize the unemployed. I is still think all the numbers are too high. At some point we've got to suck it up. And try to reopen our country and say look if you're afraid to operate your business because of the virus tough luck guide you. But since we're not near that and there is going to be a stimulus that's done the way trump has done. This is far more beneficial to the academy. Because it gives businesses and incentive. To bring employees back to work and put it that put them on the books books and. Understand. Also that if the business calls the employees back and they refused to come. They will lose their unemployment eligibility. Policy wise that trump approach is better. Politically. The very fact that trump rolled up his sleeves in San luck these people are being ridiculous they won't work. I'm just going to do it again indicates that he has a president of action willing to try to solve something on his own when the Democrats are clearly obstructing because. I. Think the goal of the Democrats all along in. This is bad. They don't want trump to craig take credit for getting any extra stimulus out they wanna make demands that are so ridiculously high that he can't do it, and then say look trump doesn't care about you. So, trump I. think it's taken this away from them on both sides a show decisiveness be a limited their ability to have to have them run around and say trump doesn't care about you trying to block the stimulus and if they wanna take as bait and Suam, trump can say look I'm trying to give you the stimulus out there but the Democrats are suing me they don't want you to have it six zero six.

In this nationwide contest I always encourage people to try to figure out why things are happening. Very interesting development in New York City New York, spend the king of the lockdowns I first to shut everything dilated. Lot of New York is still shutout. have. You noticed that the Mayor Bill De Blasio and the Governor Andrew Cuomo both say they want the schools to open This is not what we're hearing from Democrats anywhere. There's only one possible interpretation of this and that is that it's starting to on the Democrats they are on the run side of this politically. The one thing we've seen in these surveys at yet I was critical when the school districts, these goofy surveys of the parents did you want to open the schools I? Think they thought most parents would be all freaked out of the kids going back to school they'll say, no, no, no, no, no don't reopen the schools don't reopen the schools. That's my guess whether that was the motivation not the one thing that we learned his across the nation the support is overwhelming for parents wanted the kids to be back at school. Of the options, in? School. A combination of virtual and in school or just virtual it goes in that order in school wins virtual is second combination. His second had just virtual is the third, the more liberal, the area, the more support for not reopening the schools. But across the board, the numbers are very, very strong. Parents want their kids back in school. and. We all know what the reasons are. It's dawning a lot of people that kids don't get sick from this thing. It's also dawning on a lot of people that their kids are suffering emotionally they locked up in their houses forever. They need the back to school as the whole just common sense thing about how far behind you want your children to Bay When you start to see Democrats shift their positions on things. There's always a reason for it. Now. We don't know if this is going to translate across the country. For example, will you know many people have asked me are you surprised that Tony vs not issued an order shutting down the school statewide that he's allowing the do it on a case by case basis my guess is and it's just a guess trying to read the mind of the Democrats that run the State of Wisconsin is the support for reopened the schools if so overwhelming once you get away from Milwaukee and Madison? that. If they're going to keep schools closed Iverson, probably think of let Barrett in Milwaukee, take the blame let Madison take the blame. Why should I take the blame if these liberal areas want to shutdown especially given that there's such strong support. For reopening the schools. Everywhere else. All right. So I watched the PGA Championship. I don't even know when that's supposed to be anymore I think it was supposed to be used to be always the last major but then it was supposed to be like in March or May or something then they moved it because such and such it's out there in San Francisco. I was I swear I thought that there'd be a homeless person laying around the golf course but there wasn't any anything there. Anyway the Guy That wanted his Colin Morikawa I have no idea how many people watch this usually the majors ghetto big big TV attendance but nobody knows when anything is anymore. He does Tie Tiger Woods record for being the youngest player ever to win a major. Did you watch it? Dave Michael did you even remember that it was on? At, did on late. because. It's San Francisco and actually end like around seven thirty with four holes to go there was a six way tie for the lead. They're all like at eleven hundred and nine hundred whatever it was Mukalla then had this big eagle and took off anyway. There have been several major tournaments that we'd have over the last ten years where a guy would win it and everybody came on and anointed him as the next Jack Nicklaus the next tiger woods. I think the first that fit that category is Roy mcelroy one whichever one he went unopposed, the British or whatever. He's the next superstar. He's going to be the next guy to dominate Gulf and then Jordan speak what maybe I have. It reversed then Jordan speed camera he's unbelievable. He's the next superstar is dominate Gulf. Then it was Brooks Koepka who keeps winning all these managers. He's the next superstar he's going to dominate. Gulf well colored Merkava looks like the next superstar and he looks like he's going to dominate Gulf he looked so unbelievably good. So unflappable he so relatively small yet such incredibly powerful swaying I think the aunt what the one thing we've learned with all of these guys who come out at a young dominate a major is they all turn out to be really good I can't think of any of them that were flukes but none of them becomes the next tiger that so much better than everybody else that might be because there's such level of parody of so many young superstars there are at it might simply bathed that. Players like Jack Nicklaus Tiger Woods only come around once every forty or fifty years but. This guy is very good. The thing that struck me about him and. EVERY GENERATION IS DIFFERENT I don't know that I've ever seen a gopher so less excited part of it is there's no crowd you know on the dolphins pumped up by the crowd you make a big you know when he gets hit as he got his eagle on, I, get mixed up here I think it was sixteen, but it might have been fifteen when he got his eagle, the crowd would've roared whether a crowd so he'd be swinging his fists and all that. So it's GotTa be weird with his the only people that were out during the course for caddies and the you know the course, what's the volunteers? So there was nobody to really yeller screen, but I mean, he wins the major at he cut. Okay. Shakes his caddy's hand and that's the twenty three and you WanNa Major. The guy apparently was spectacular as an amateur in fact, played in a lot of what's the big championship they have for an amador's wanamaker or something. Yeah he won that and he in fact, it's played in a lot of pro tournaments while he was still an amateur. So he's been he's kind of tiger and that he was known to be a fee. Nom since he was in his teenage years. Anyway, there was that and for those of you wondering, yes, the bucks are playing tonight. In fact, they're playing right now I've had some people ask me what is all of the seeding me? There is no homecourt advantage because the games are in the bubble. So the only thing the bucks needed to do in the remainder of the regular season was the eastern conference number one seed in the only advantage that is the one seed plays the eight seed in the first round, and then you move forward but since there is the court advantage. The big thing that you know you play for and seating as they have most most of the games including game seven on the home court. So there's very little of that and it means nothing in terms of whoever the western conference team is. All the seating really did is determined who it is that you will play during the rounds in the eastern, conference and the one seed will end up playing whoever the the eight is. So jaanus is in play tonight and so on. The bucks have no reason to win any of I think they would have three regular season games left and then the playoffs start Think at the end of the week or early next or whatever in the meantime baseball keeps plug into law and end remember baseball half the teams make the playoffs. So I guess that would mean a five hundred record probably puts you right about there. So that's the standard we need to keep the. Brewers above on the other hand to Saint Louis Ever GonNa play again. I mean Saint, Louis Two and three. They have I mean they got it. If they don't make up all of those games are the just going to go on percentage with them or? In the me in the meantime, the Pittsburgh Pirates apparently like three and ninety seven or something I mean they're just terrible they can't win at all anyway the breweries I've direct hold they the brewers are at Miller Park you can't tell but they're at Miller Park and they have one series each year with the Inter League they play the American league central when the not play the national league central. So the Minnesota twins are in town. Those are always wild games. So they're always great environments of the Ballpark, but tonight is what? what it is in the meantime Christian Yelich still hitting on the one forty nine is he a weird season that I? I know I have friends who are white sox fans that inside the park home run that he had. To write it out I. still go to why he was running it out. I thought when the ball hit it was a bomb maybe decided as a fall, but it lands twenty feet short of the fence, but it's inferior territory jogging the first the white sox leftfielder comes after the ball and the next thing you know he falls into the stands in somehow seems to be tangled up in a seat and Yelich gets a home run. And then he responds. Up The middle of the scoreboard at Miller Park. So What I've noticed is his swing has been very tentative he and that's always a side of you're not seeing the ball. Yelich usually he sees ican figure out what the pitches the incident it comes off the finger he's already swinging by the top before the ball is halfway to the play any it's been more of a half swaying nervous tichy kind of thing he started drawing all those walks them, which is usually a sign. They see the ball because he's laying off pitches that they were having him chase, and then he went off the middle of the scoreboard yesterday. So maybe he's got himself back but anyway, I think the brewers are better than fifty fifty to make the playoffs I just think. The fact that they're five hundred. So many of their power hitters aren't hitting it. All is a pretty good sign for where they are six, twenty, one news talk seven, thirty W I it's time for red looking for a new career but don't want to spend four years in college then checkout Septa University through are year round accelerated programs you can earn a bachelor's degree in just two point five years and associates in one point five or earn your masters in as little as fifteen months whether it's technology healthcare business criminal justice or the culinary arts are hands on programs can help you reach your professional goals.
