Because if there weren't union soldiers there to enforce it it literally. Nothing in did not change of your life if you were enslaved human being in texas. Which was the westernmost state. There was very little union presence throughout the war so it was as if nothing had happened in fact there were slave owners. He moved west to continue. The practice of slavery moved to texas for that purpose so this day this was a big day. He arrived with almost two thousand troops. Some of whom were united states colored troops and they enforced this order. What what kind of the history. Of june teeth in the legacy. It's only recently really bad. It's become more widely known.

This year gains moved her mother into a nursing home and now she's applying for jobs again. She'd prefer to work from home but is okay with going into a covid safe workplace. Most importantly she wants to find something that would allow her to take her mom to doctors appointments and checking on her frequently. Gains herself is sixty two now.

And then they would rapidly sharing that information with other airlines so those airlines could prevent the same thing from happening to that. That's not at all what's happening with this pipeline incident instead. It's a volunteer system of protecting data and sharing information.

Climate Change Risks Mounting for Businesses

"Risks and opportunities to companies face in the years ahead. Here is maggie. Pelosi an attorney with vincent and elkins. Hi meg welcome to climate. Cast ballots to be here. So how do companies begin to assess their risk as climate change impacts. Continue to unfold. So i think many companies have already started down this road and fundamentally there are two big types of risks that companies are looking at right now. The first are risks or opportunities that individual companies may face associated with the energy transition. So that's the transition from an economy. Where many of our power sources are coming from. Fossil fuels to an economy is mostly powered by renewables or other carbon free kinds of sources to power the second risk. That has gotten less attention. But i think is in many ways going to be more significant for all companies on a going forward basis is the physical risks of climate. Change as you well know in your listeners will be well familiar. There are a number of physical impacts of climate that regardless of what actions we take to reduce emissions now. We are going to experience changes in storm. Severity rises in sea levels. Changes in temperatures in each of those types of events can have impacts on the ability of industry stained continuity of their operations or to respond in emergency or disaster situations litigation. Around this. what are you seeing emerge. I think the most prominent piece of litigation in this space are the legal challenges have been wrought by a variety of municipalities against oil and gas producers. Those cases are in very early stages. There are a number of other types of cases that we are starting to see against corporations that are asking questions about the readiness of companies physical facilities for climate change so basically using tools of conventional environmental law to say. Gosh are you really complying with your permanent things like preventing spills or preventing releases if you haven't thought about the potential for increased storm surge increased flash precipitation events those kinds of things. What about regulations they're changing. We know there's a change in politics in washington. Dc so what are regulators doing around climate policy. And what does it mean for companies right now. The most significant thing that's happening in climate change that will impact corporations is the increase in attention to climate at the securities and exchange commission in terms of other buckets of climate regulation. We expect to see the will. Impact businesses the fed has created a group called the supervision climate committee which is essentially looking at the potential to create climate stress test for systemically important banks and then we will certainly see some of the more conventional types of greenhouse gas regulation environmental laws to be signed the obama administration. What about opportunities. Are you seeing opportunities ahead in this space. I absolutely am seeing opportunities. And and i think that the right conversation around climate at pretty much every company is. What's the transformational opportunity. I'll give you a very concrete example in the oil and gas industry we are seeing an increasing number of the big oil and gas companies. Talking about how they can become carbon management companies right. They will say look should regretting oil and gas. How the ground. But you know what that means. We're great at characterizing the geology formations knowing how to see to inject things and knowing how to monitor wells and knowing how to plug in the end in them so we can take all those skills and we can turn around and start putting c o two into the ground and we can create a new line of business for

"washington dc" Discussed on The Dave Ramsey Show

"So i have a question i graduated. Undergrad my undergrad degree. Debt free and i'm currently working on a law degree paying as i go and working fulltime so that i can graduate debt free greg. I'm also contributing to my 401k. And doing the full fifteen percent of my Paycheck and my company has a good match. I've seen some articles on line. That seem to make it appear that the new administration doesn't look favorably on 401k's and wants to possibly you know diminish them so. I'm wondering if i should do anything with a 401k that i have now no I i have not seen that trend by anything credible But i i have no idea what the biden administration is going to do. And we do not have the benefit of checks and balances in that they can pass anything through a democrat senate democratic congress so i don't know what they'll pass I would think it would be very difficult and political suicide to screw with the largest wealth-building to america but who knows these are strange times. So it doesn't mean though that i wouldn't put money into it in anticipation of some bizarre political event and by the way that would be the definition of a bizarre political vin for him to do that in years past would have been political suicide today. I don't even know what that means but so i i used to say things like oh no way they would never do that in this world right now. What they're gonna do. But i will continue to put money in my 401k. Until i have different information than i have the day. Which i don't have any information that is credible that makes me think it's one of the you know biden. Administration's top priorities to do away with america's primary wealth-building tool. Yeah i'm not seen anything on that That would not be an overnight re result that would there would be some serious conversation about that and an uproar to say the least And so i don't think you need to be fearful. I agree with dave on that. But yeah i mean you know get beyond the that 401k. You know here you are. You're often running in your you're Cash flowing your education. You're gonna do very very well and so began to look at you know the diversified plan that we teach at ramsey solutions. You know retire inspired me. Great book for you at this stage to begin to see what's the future look like. And what are all the ways that i could Prepare for the future. But no don't don't be in a state of fear right now and that's part of the problem davis i understand. There's uncertainty for seventy five million americans. Let's just be really. Is you have very divided country in an election. That obviously all kinds of stuff going around it. And and i can tell you this. I'm not a spring chicken. But i'm not an old man either but i've been around enough to watch a lot of elections and a lot of change in power and One thing that. I just want to tell her audience Your side is not as pure as you think. They are and the other side's not as eagles you think they are either so relax. You don't need to look to washington. Dc for your future you don't and Stay the course. Keep doing smart things. Don't freak out. Fear is never a great place to operate from. Yeah i can promise you this. If they do do away with the 401k will be here to help you figure out what that is true and he will rent. We'll show you what that is true and There's something to do there's always something to do. There's always a way to do things. But i really truly I would be shocked and amazed. But i will caveat that was saying i have been shocked right years of what these characters will pull off on both sides of the aisle open phones at triple eight eight to five five.

"Just make it a habit that every day after you do your regular news consumption. Read two tour three things that are out there. that are different from what. You're what you're currently thinking. And i know it's helped me a lot yesterday. In a short snippet. I saw someone after. They stormed the capital. Who said tv. They really felt like patriot and in at first glance has just like what are you talking about. You're not a patriot and yet. I think there was some sincerity to that statement and dad. I think you can only understand by by at least passively participating in the conversation that happens on the other side you know on that note. One recommendation i would make is a few months ago. I saw this documentary called boy state on apple tv plus. And if you haven't seen it you should definitely check it out particularly if you find yourself living in a more liberal bubble so boy state is is every year thousands of high school boys they gather in their home state to attend a camp. That's essentially designed to put them through the political process of building a government from the ground up and in real life boy state alumni. Include everyone from dick cheney to cory booker to bill clinton. Tim cook okay. This particular documentary focuses on boy state texas in particular four boys and it is just riveting and disturbing and also inspiring. It's just incredible window into a group of young people with political aspirations. I would highly recommend it And hear what about you. That sounds great You know. I've been thinking just about how difficult the next two months or going to be in many ways for many people. Which is we have not talked about it. But of course covert is raging. There locked towns in the uk all around. And so. i'm going to go a little bit lighter to try to lighten. What hopefully will be. Well i'm going to try to lighten. What will i think be kind of relatively dark month or two and this hearkens back felix to a recommendation. You made a longtime ago. Which is there's a movie that was released late last year which didn't get the attention. It deserved which is felix the movie version of the concert that you recommended which is american utopia and features it features who i think is one of the greatest artists have lost thirty years. David byrne filmed by what i think of is one of the greatest movie makers for the last thirty years which is spike lee. And it's a really joyous movie and at a time when it's hard to feel that kind of joy i just found it incredibly uplifting it also features a song by a woman who i recommended before janelle monet and i just think it's a fantastic movie and a beautiful movie and a little bit of a i guess a little bit of a salvation from our current troubles. Maybe if you're looking for a little bit of escape but with still with some meaning I think american utopia. The movie version is just fantastic. I saw that. I have to say it's amazing. It's really wonderful. Yeah it is fun. Yeah my tiny bit of joy over. The past week is come from payton. Pritchard know what he's going to understand that reference but there will be few listeners out there that will think okay. Thanks everyone for listening. We'll be back next week at a regular schedule time. But in the meantime everybody take care of themselves. This is after hours you. The hp our podcast..

What's it like there and from our sister station got intern. John he arose. You got riley from your morning show. They are with iheartradio. There are partners you known for awhile. Thought we kind of check in with them. You guys there. Yeah i'm here. I don't know about credible. John's was funny about being on the radio show. I think a caller. I'm nervous great job. Are you guys doing your show with a sense of humor. Or i mean because you're right there and you know we're not there and we're like oh my god. How do we do show. What are you guys doing. Yeah i mean. Here's the i'm originally from minnesota. So i've been in dc for like eight years and when i didn't know about dc we call the dmv so there's dc maryland virginia station. You hearing all three. It's kind of like anything. Colorado meets the typically the source states kip. So it's kind of like that. Where the seat. A lot people in our area is like times square for new yorkers where it's more of like a tourist thing unless you actually live in the district right and the thing about. Dt's populations every two years changed. 'cause there's always an election for congress or senate president so it's it's very In neak in that sense so a lot of people in d. c. Well it's like. I had the realization today like any time. Something goes wrong in the world around. History like dc dnb's always affected because this is all the changes are made. So i feel like in the actual area like people. Obviously the capital get You know run over but it's still like there's more calm. I think maybe the rest of the country because again like now to make it to draft hitler mercy poland like. Dc was involved in this area. It's almost like you know being in this area. Big things happen if that makes sense. It's a weird as more of a quiet confidence. Anything else. that like. We're gonna get through this if that makes sense. Well you explain this. So you're saying that you know steph in dc is going to be chaos but you feel like it stays isolated there in. It'll get resolved because everybody's seen this before that. Yeah i mean. I think it's more so just like big like the vibe. I've got people. They know they still like we. People listening to the show. No they still have to go to work and we still like. I think the fact that we saw the government really get back in fashion last night it's like. Dc is very much like we have to keep going because the rest of the country is depending on us. Let me ask you this. So it's like you go into work. You have in your day yesterday. are you like. Oh my god. We're in the middle of this. Are you looking at like the same way. We're looking at it. Oh man that's going on in. Dc i i mean i guess it's also like you know our our job always feel like as i said this show is like i'm not the best delivering the hard news. I'm really good distracting. Like i'm really. My teachers always said in school. John's distracting the class. So obviously we're informing people here but also we know we're trying to be the escape the too so they give you breaking news and what's going on also like try to make it so when you're going into the district like you can for five minutes. Just forget about what's going on so you didn't send somebody from your show out to the capital this morning to report what it's like now. Because here's the thing too so like dc. Dc obviously old city right so like dc was built. The hard to get into so like learn really looked pretty easy. Like if you're going from the mall to the capital straight shot like that's under percents. The rest of the streets though are built in the way so the british directly attack buildings dc. There's one bridge maryland. virginia. So i love you our listeners. There commute during normal noncovic times could be like an hour and a half to go into. Dc like fifteen minutes bro much geography talking to you right now like i don't even honestly if you'll put up a map with no names on i couldn't find on a map right crazy they. Dc's kind of things like never ever sending their own. Police risk to district to is a districts. It's an odd thing where i think its own separate. The interesting thing was other states surrounding truly can help support. What's going on you even on the air today. Okay my friend. I'm the baby fat. Watch this go down. Are you surprised or were you guys sort of since you live around that world where you almost expecting something like that. Well the thing was we got in yesterday like they keep going on The national mall is everything seems normal again like being in this area. It's we see demonstrations all time right. It's not non common thing every four years. We see inauguration but that's not an uncommon thing. And then i took. The show went home and took a nap and got a bunch of texts. My friends saying like western d. I woke up. I'm like oh gosh. We're coach high school hockey's hotel kids were fourteen and fifteen. Obviously they're worried and obviously they should be. But i just had her mind guys like everything. You know scary now but whole everything's gone wrong. In the world or in the country c has been on the forefront to figure it out this kind of either because these kids. I mean the year. They've had to we just kind of like. Yeah okay so it's like you. You're they're doing your show from there. You live there and it just something like in being in arizona and people saying man. It's hot get it. I i mean. I don't wanna try to downplay. 'cause obviously it's a very serious thing because of the capital but like the act everything leading up to that is a normal thing to happen to that makes sense right like expecting. They arrested capital but as far as like demonstrations on national mall. I mean there's been there's probably been one hundred thousand though so everything leading up to it. I think felt like it was normal until it feels like one o'clock yesterday so that's kind of like again like most resident is nobody time square for new york the gave me. He's like i got okay. Hold on rich if you've been to. Dc i have not suzanne have you been in. Dc i have probably been in dc. Yeah i have not been in dc. So wow that's fascinating beautiful. I saw it on. Tv high school choir trip. Which songs last night. Desk john zona. I have never been arrogant. I wanna go to. But then like i was like a radio. 'cause radio we're such nervous. It's like the first thing you do when you was city. That's radio strike the realization. That was trying to go last year. But everything closed that. That would pit damper on your traveling. Yeah man wow man will so you did your show. Today was just a normal show or did you even bring up. What happened you like now. It happened yeah. No but it's it's again. It's like people here probably know more than we do especially early morning. If you're going against a breaking news and people want to call and talk about trial even open that way So that's kind of again like the balance of trying to be the the in the yang keeping us one but also if you need with escape the world couple minutes to do you have any new bits or anything we could steal.

"They said vehicles on fire after news broke of an officer involved shooting. Earlier in the day, Chicago police blamed the writing misinformation spread regarding the shooting. They say police responded to reports of a man with a gun and were met with gunfire as they approached him, officers returned fire and struck the victim who was taken to the hospital in an unknown condition of the police. Department says, this is an example of police reacting to rumors without having the full storied. Wow. Also, violence in DC over the weekend, a deadly shooting is under investigation. They're as hundreds of people gathered for a cookout near Fort Circle. Park, when several people began shooting into the crowd police say one teenager was killed. This is so sad and twenty others were ended when gunfire gunfire erupted. Why is there a hundred people cooking out? Exactly? Exactly. Exactly. They had a don't make as many. People are knowing. and. Yeah I agree I. Agree. We will don't make no sense is to shooting right? Exactly. That is the part that really don't make no this. People began shooting into the crowd. DISA- crowd of people. So you open fire, I mean. This is the real problem. Yeah. Yeah. You know man and like cow. IDIOM SARK. Part about doing stories like this. For people like us is. We do the story and we don't have a solution to it. because. You're right. It's more than just policing. That's the issue in these cities. Of course, it is. Yeah. Jobs lack. That's the lack real deal is lack of opportunity the hopelessness fostered. Because it could dishes are so deprived. These so many young people have no. Hope of participating in the. American dream. and. And it's understood that wait the reason you have zoning the reason you have certain ZIP codes, they get red line and things like that because they can get you in his area. They can control what you buy where you shop and how you live and if they can keep you in the oppress sector. Now. Here's the upside to this. There are many people all of us come from. That are many success stories coming out of the hood. Of people who overcome in do really really well every day but. That fears of that, right. But there is a number that creates these stories that the media sensationalizes and blows up and becomes the headline. And there are no stories about the young people overcome who win who get out, who go to school, who ended up with great jobs who have careers at at at post office on us, auto plant or home depot, or anything like that, and then it becomes a trifling shame, and then until we changed the way taxpayer dollars dispersed at the state level. Instead of going to communities who pay the most taxes where these communities can never come up into change. The way state funds are allocated. It will forever keep the less fortunate less fortunate. And part of that involves the filling out the census people who haven't filled out the census census. People are coming to your homes now and they'll have their masks on, but please fill out your census report. So you can get some of these things that Steve is talking. Yeah. It really is, and of course, vote. Don't be so hopeless that you don't vote I. Mean. That's what happens a Lotta. TIMES, because people don't vote.

"Southerners and Northerners in the new government worked out a compromise in which the capital would be located in the South and exchange for southern Congress members dropping their opposition to the federal government, paying off northern states deaths from the revolutionary war, the location along the Potomac River was attractive to George Washington because it was less than twenty about thirty two kilometers from his Mount Vernon estate, and because he had vision of turning the capital into a prosperous riverport and commercial hub. In, eighteen o one Congress passed the Organic Act which took away district residents right to vote for congressional representatives and the following year granted charter to a portion of the district, the city of Washington, which was allowed to elect a twelve member city council. The mayor initially was appointed by the US President, though in eighteen twenty, the law was changed to allow a mayoral election as well. As for that second count, Washington DC was situated to slave states Maryland and Virginia which helped protect the slavery there from northern influence, A. We spoke by email, but jd dickey, the author of the two thousand fourteen book empire of Bud the secret history of Washington DC.

In the first half of the eighteen hundreds Washington became center for the Domestic Trade home to one of the busiest markets involved in the sale of human beings.

Northern one slavery was embedded into the fabric of the city from its inception, and the slave trade quickly became a major industry. After emancipation and a brief flowering of interracial democracy, the city lost its self government and city leaders embraced southern style segregation in customs and social relations. DC was a southern city until the late twentieth century. The issues of self, government and statehood in Washington DC are intertwined with race ash, says the Washington had limited self rule for much of the eighteen hundreds and the eighteen seventies congress took that away for the next century Washington was run largely by southern segregationists, such as senator, Theodore Bilbo Mississippi in who had the unofficial title of Mayor of Washington?

"Hey Brian. Stuff Lauren Volvo bomb here. On June twenty sixth of twenty twenty, the US. House of Representatives passed historic legislation that would transform the district of Columbia into the nation's fifty first state. The bill would give the district's current, seven, hundred, five, thousand, seven, hundred and forty nine residents, the opportunity to elect the Congress member and two senators with full voting rights for the first time in the nation's history, though the bills still faces an uphill battle in the US Senate. Currently Washington DC has a nonvoting delegate to the House. Eleanor Holmes Norton who introduced the statehood legislation, but has no say in its passage as well as two shadow senators who similarly cannot vote on legislation. The bill would shrink the federal capital to a small area encompassing the White House Capitol, Building Supreme, court and other federal buildings along the National Mall the rest of the city would become the fifty first state. House Speaker Nancy. Pelosi said in a news conference for more than two centuries. The residents of Washington DC The district of Columbia have been denied their right to fully participate in their democracy. Pelosi said that the importance of giving Washington DC full voting rights was demonstrated this month when the administration of President. Donald trump employed federal law enforcement agents and National Guard troops against protestors in Washington DC without the residents approval. House majority leader. Steny Hoyer said. This is not just an issue of local governance and fairness. It's a major civil rights issue as well. At this point, the legislation is a largely symbolic statement that few expect to pass at least for now because it would have to get through the Republican, controlled US Senate where majority leader Mitch McConnell indicated an interview with Fox News that he would deny vote. Even if the Senate did approve it. Trump most likely would veto the measure. Trump said to the New York Post in May. Why so we can have two more Democrats senators and five more congressman. No, thank you. That will never happen. But the current controversy raises another question. Why didn't the nation's founders make Washington DC estate in the first place a when they decided to create a new national capital? Why did they choose to deny residence the same representation in the national government, but the rest of the nation citizens have. As historians explain Washington's lack of full representation has mainly to do with two things I. There was a desire on the part of some of the founders to have a strong federal government. That wouldn't be dependent upon the state. It was in for services and protection. But it also has something to do. Southern slaveholders desire to have a national capital in their territory with Week self-governance, so that slavery wouldn't face any local political resistance, even after the civil war, segregationists in Congress fought for many years to keep control over the district's administration and deny any power to the city's. Black, population. On. That I count though an early US military mutiny was a primary event..

"Hi. This is Greg from Pennsylvania. It makes no sense to add another tiny state Washington DC isn't even a big city, if anything make it part of Maryland, or Virginia not a state of its own. Thanks Greg Congresswoman. You hear this a lot. How do you respond to it? Actually? I don't hear it a lot and the reason i. don't hear it. A lot is because there are two states that are smaller or would be smaller if the district became a state Vermont in Wyoming, right? We've never looked to see what your size was to see whether or not, you should be admitted to the union people that need to focus on what DC would and It is a very thriving city. We have so many people We have no place to go, and indeed you know you can't build above a certain. level in DC, which makes it expensive to live here? talking about being able to support ourselves that of course means that the district must tax people because it can make up for by expanding, so the district recognize then still people come. Because it is a place to live that people find desirable. One listener texted taxation without representation was a major reason for the revolution and founding of this country. It's asinine that DC doesn't have representation in the legislature David. What would DC actually. Look like as a state. What some of the features be! Well I mean to begin to be quite unique as a state. You'll be only state without local governments internal to it. It would be. It's just the city again. This would be a small, not the smallest as the congresswoman note. But it would be a quite a small state on. The, the one of the big things that would be attractive about statehood I think is that it would give. Greater capacity to. Engage in kind of remove the limitations created by the Home Rule Act. That were quite odd and bad, and the country mentioned one of them which is the enshrinement of the height of Buildings Act which stops DC from. Removed from DC the ability to approve taller buildings, and as a result office space in DC is extraordinarily expensive and residents are extraordinarily expensive because. Full rights to allow construction further statehood would give DC the power to tax out of St residents who work in the city, and this has always been one of the major opposition. Politicians from Maryland and Virginia have had to DC statehood on the. That power would be granted. DC would also lose some things though DC got a bunch of special benefits in a particularly in the nineties during it's part of the bill out of city government that on the would, and so DC would get and lose from statehood as kind of as a governing in today. And we are almost out of time, but congressman and I want to read this tweet to you and give you just about thirty seconds or so respond. They said please ask about the way. The feds hold the DC budget hostage year after year forcing DC to issue bonds to cover its own money. I would appreciate you expanding on this economic interrelation. What the what she's referring to is that our budget raised here entirely in the district of Columbia has to be signed off by the Congress of the United States absurd, because they don't put a dime. In that budget, and this is the kind of nominally that we've been trying to get rid of through. Through just getting full home home rule so the the the they're probably benefits, the country to mention to the district If we were to be a state, it is important for me to say one important thing, and that is one of your listeners talked about Maryland and Virginia and that they could be taxed. Please note that all four senators. From our two adjoining states, Maryland and Virginia our sponsors of the DC statehood bill. They know they could pay face some possible taxation that is always negotiated with the with the entity involved. A minute to go David. You think that proponents of statehood have been far too focused on Congress so tell us what should they be focused on instead if the actually want to make this happen? These should be focused on making DC as estate work, and I think that this would require a state constitution that was designed to solve the particular problems of DC is a state, and so I think they need to include in their state that were they ought to considering concluding in their state constitution rules governing kind of a mandatory contributions to a rainy day fund that are stricter than most places given the this the the new state's capacity for kind of booms and busts, and they should focus on or the consider adding to their electoral rules. Things designed to create internal electoral competition so that. Local officials face kind of partisan competition inside the city is not come from national political parties, but from some degree that would create some degree of Internal Competition David.

Your position as DC's representative is interesting, given DC status. What do you do as representative and tell us what power? If you can't vote in Congress well. It's interesting that actually I have every other single power. Except that final vote on the House floor and let me tell you what that means. I can share a subcommittee I do share one neck and share full committee I vote in committee. do everything that every representative ties, but when it comes time to cast that final vote, including boats that affect only the district of Columbia every member of the House of Representatives can vote except the member who has been elected by the residents of the District of Columbia. So, what does it feel like to never be able to vote on final passage for one of your bills? Well, frankly I've never felt disempowered and the Congress because I walked in the door, saying. Saying I'M GONNA? I'm going to act like every other member of Congress and demand to be treated like every other member of Congress I have it? It's not me. The problem is with the people I represent I. Get all the respect I need in Congress, but they get no respect when that final vote comes, and everybody can cast a vote except the member who represents them now DC. Statehood has been central to your platform for decades. Can you tell us what's important to you? It's important to me and personally and as a member personally because I'm a third generation Washingtonian. My great grandfather was a runaway slave. He got here to freedom, but Nobody in the homes family has made it to equality. Far beyond that, though it's important to me because I represent. Americans who pay the highest federal taxes per capita? And have no vote in the House of Representatives. that's an amazing notion when you think about it, because highest per capita means more than in the largest states and the richest states like New York in California, and did we pay more federal taxes. than twenty two states. That's what we contribute to the United States of America without having. A vote If you look at the district and people will say well, you know that's just a city well as larger than two states. my Wyoming and Vermont. And and they say well the. Certainly, it's not. It's not in fiscal terms equal. Where we have a budget of almost sixteen billion, that's larger than the budget of fourteen states. And, if you WANNA look at whether or not, we are ready to be a state as I. We have been since the nation was created, but Some dollars and cents for you. TRUMP AAA bond rating. Is better than that of thirty five states. Cool can count themselves well. Let's bring. Let's bring in David Schleicher professor of law at Yale University David. What do you think are the potential problems with DC statehood? Show the case for DC state, who always been very focused on Congress and the effect of the statehood will have and providing representation in Congress, but for residents, the biggest effect would not be in having representation in Congress, but rather in changing the form of their own government. Deceased estate would be quite unique. It'd be the only state that is entirely in one metropolitan area, and it would even beyond that just be the city and not have control over tone, suburbs or any of its suburbs. This would be unique among the state. This is a pretty big affects on it. It is a fiscal entity taxing and spending its economy and on its politics. I think is good idea. All things told that proponents need to think really hard about how to sheep independent. Shaped. Sheep Steve Hood in order to address these problems. What do you say to that congresswoman? I've heard of augments against statehood, but I'M GONNA say. To the professor, that's unique. It is true. That this would be a unique state. it wouldn't be like every other state. It wouldn't have what he calls a metropolitan area or suburbs. But that has nothing to do with statehood. Statehood ought to be about whether in every single respect. With respect to the other states. You are entitled to statehood. Now if you if you WANNA look and and and see. About about suburbs, we have suburbs here. And they in fact. vote or treating in many ways as a metropolitan area. That's what would happen if we became a state. So this the if we get hung up on something as trivial as a state has to look like this has to have these things than we have lost sight of the constitution and of the latitude that the framers gave us to form states. We got this voice mail from a listener about why they think DC shouldn't be a state. Here's Bob from Lancaster. Washington DC an obvious, they call ours. The constitution forbids. The desired, have Washington. DC is a state. It's just a powered. By Democrat. Thank you both for leaving us that voicemail. David as Bob Right would making DC state the unconstitutional. No. Alice from conservatives like Viet Dinh to the ACS liberal like liberal organizational. You, have gone through the tissue extensively and the legal argument against statehood are silly on the. There'd be a small problem created by the fact that the twenty-third amendment allocates electoral votes to. Strict and the district would then be shrunk to a very small area by statehood, which would leave three electoral votes in the hands of a very small number of people, but other than that the arguments about that Maryland need sign off because the land was given to from Maryland to to create the district. People think have very little merit on, and so there's no real constitutional problem. The question is about advisability much more than it is about the law. David your response to an email here. From Stephen DC the state would be the only fully urban jurisdiction Congress residents of cities around the country, even mid size and small cities would gain new ally in expressing their concerns on a wide range of issues. This will be especially valuable for urban residents of Republican. States like Louisville Kentucky Tulsa Oklahoma Phoenix Arizona, Houston, Texas and so on. So I think. It'd be very salutary for Congress. The big question I have and I think there's only could be dealt with Steve Constitution is. The fact that would be A. Uniquely shock prone as state, and it would not have the federal government standing behind it the way that it did you win defaced its fiscal crisis in the Mid Ninety S. The city the would if there was a decline in demand for urban property or the federal government shrunk by a certain percentage, just because of politics, or whatever you could see a really major fiscal shock to a city that couldn't balance against having control having being able to tax the suburbs. Or couldn't balance again. Another metro city in it state and so i. think that those are the questions of downtown. Four to the effect Congress would be quite good on that. It is in fact, the case that the US Senate particularly is biased towards rural areas the house to some degree. and that statehood would would help push against that. Congresswoman. You heard the voicemail that we played a moment ago from Bob. He said that DC statehood is a power grab by Democrats. What's your response to that? I think that that's the fear. And I can understand that fear, because most big cities are democratic, and that that indeed has is what is on the mind of a Republicans and then the country has to ask itself. is admission to the union dependent upon. the. Politics of those who seek admission, and if your answer is yes, then you don't. You. Don't want any state admitted until you do a poll and see how they would vote, so we recognize that that is a challenge to us. We're prepared to meet that challenge I met me. Give you an example of how we're going to meet it. we look at the election coming up where you see. The president opposes statehood in the Senate opposed to statehood, and then we look at what the polls are showing recognizing fully that polls can change. But. They are so overwhelming. That? We are heartened by the fact. That It looks like Democrats take the Senate. And, it almost surely looks like we will have a new president of the United States so those who look at a moment in time to try to figure what will happen with a specific bill need.

"To bring you the news you need to know. As protests over the death of George, Floyd and the unequal treatment of black Americans continues in cities across America. The response in Washington DC has been starkly different. Much of that is because the nation's capital home to the White House in the seat of US federal government is a district and subject to different jurisdiction than a state. Washington. DC has a mayor and a member of Congress, but it's representation looks more like a U. S. territory. So when president trump on Monday called for governors to dominate protesters, he was uniquely situated to deploy military units in Washington DC. Since then at least five thousand eight hundred troops, agents and officers have taken to the streets of the district. Humvees rumbled down DC streets. A UH LAKOTA helicopter flew low over protesters. More and more fencing has gone up around the White House making the Executive Mansion. Look more like a fortress. The police force on the ground includes the national, Guard Secret Service Park Police FBI DA, US marshals bureau of Prisons Customs and Border Protection, ice and more. These are not exactly beat. Cops used patrolling the streets. On Thursday Washington DC, Mayor Murray thousand had. She requested that President Trump, remove all federal law enforcement and military presence from the city. She argued that the units are inflaming and adding to the grievances of people protesting. Amid the ongoing battle over the streets of Washington DC bowser shared a new image on Friday morning. Overnight local artists and city officials began painting black lives matter in massive yellow letters on Sixteenth Street right near the White House. Let's get to the point..

"Always leveled at women, and it was basically if you're a woman in newer, nuisance an actual criminal charge criminal charms goal common. Scold? And in fact, the book a book one of the books written about her is called the common scold. All right. We're getting towards the end year. But why is this important because this is during the second grade awakening so religious men thought the route into more filling the pews up with more people was going to be through the women. So convinced the women that everybody in the family needed to be religious. And you keep the churches filled. If you have a woman writing about how these men are all scoundrels that's not good for business. So they take her into court. She is convicted. And when she's convicted she's convicted to this ducking in the in the Potomac river, the judge in this case. However, prosecutors did not have the power they have today and the judge decided that it was medieval to duck somebody in the water twenty four years later. She dies, but in one thousand nine hundred six no ducking. No, no ducking, and no dunking because the judge decided it was too medieval, and the story ends nicely in one thousand nine hundred six she was portrayed as quote, the policewoman of truth, who's newspaper with fiery truthfulness, and knifelike probings of the public and private affairs of men and women.

Please follow us on Twitter at at slate gab fest and tweed chatter at us for Emily Baz. Lana. John Dickerson, I'm David plots. Thank you for listening. Thank you, Washington. DC? Hi slate plus interest in what you think happens next with the survived the challenges, and if I be in Helbig and hobby lobby I mean, what's next after the DOJ opinion. Right. Well, so we should make clear the Justice department can withdraw from the suit and other folk can defend the suit. So it's not as if that means that oughta Mattingly, this judge's ruling becomes the final word there will be appeals. And when the stugotz made his ruling law professors across the political spectrum denounced it as like crazy. It just didn't seem like it was tethered in any way to all the rules about when you sever provisions and when you strike an entire law down. So I don't think that really will be upheld. But as we know. You know, other challenges to the Fourtou Care Act that seemed way out there round up with you know, three or four votes on the supreme court. So I, you know, we'll have to watch and see and already a couple of the justices. I think it's a Lido and Thomas have expressed some sympathy for this view, so not gonna get zero votes. Drew Clark on my questions for Emily. You talked a lot about prosecutorial discretion and how that's kind of ballooned with the limiting of judge's discretion. But it seems to me there's there's one or at least or even to more fundamental issues in one is just how we get rid of these three strikes, and you're out types of laws are those mostly federal or state. How do we address that? And also could you just address the role of drug laws, and how crazy they've gotten and should should congress be more focused on scaling back penalties for marijuana and other minor crime uses overt or the three strikes laws or? Or or these prosecutorial things that you focused on most of the three strikes laws that remained. In fact, our state laws on some of them have been reformed or even struck down California and a ballot initiative pulled back on its three strikes law in general, I think one answer to how do we ratchet down from these harsh sentencing laws just a preview to hear the rest?

"That we also have on our tour here in Washington DC got to see the inside of the capitol building. And that is a wide variety of textures and colors and even down to looking at the rotunda where the different types of stone don't match I was part of the tour to guide was like you may notice that the stone doesn't match because they whitewashed it when they built it. How do you guys? Go about picking out which details are important to make sure you get right in which ones you're like. Well, the players probably just going to run by that hallway real quick. So let's focus on something else. Instead, exactly. That's a good question. Because people think when you recreating city one to one that you just copy everything. But of course, that wouldn't work. And you you really have to be careful and clever about how you style is the environment that you building you need to focus your budget on the things that metamorphosed as you say the the buildings alot here. There's more open sky so apart from a beautiful new cloud system. We're also looking at the silhouettes we create on those low lying buildings putting a lot of detailing there. And then as you say with with beautiful buildings like the capitol the national archives really beautiful buildings in coporate stone, different types of polish stone embedded polished brass embedded Letheren like all these materials that work. So well in in the kind of the lighting system that we have in Snowdrop, it's it's it was a really. Fortunate challenge for us to to try and recreate these these buildings these landmarks sounds like you guys are also limited in some of the things you could manipulate and some of the things you couldn't because I think things are protected here in DC where there any major challenges or do you see them more as creative challenges? You have a different creative challenges. But everything gets a legal poss- did the same in New York. It's not so different. I think from cinematic teams who wanna make a movie so I mean, one of the things that we do is we recreate the brands of DC. So these see itself has you know, it has a logo with the stars and stripes. We had to recreate this recruited the brands for the police security services. Firefighters FEMA CDC all that kind of thing we try and think of those brands from from head to tail so to speak so not not just how they look in a poster or something but from. Micro macro uses throughout the world. Are we trying to think of them properly as as a brand as he would if you making a brand? No that absolutely makes sense. I think is a challenge that sometimes gamers who are just booting up the game to play don't stop to think about the massive amount of work that goes on the other side to brings some of this iconic imagery into a game. And I always find it really fascinating. Hearing about these kind of behind the scene stories that go along to make something like the capitol building in the division to reality. So we one example would be we weren't able to recreate the world we'll to memorial that you see near the Washington Monument when you looking at towards Lincoln Memorial. But we created a different memorial there that has a similar feel and it happens to be an important site for the introduction to the second part of the game. Well, we won't we won't go into details about that. We'll keep it secret. I did want to bring up something that Britney asked Julian about when we were chatting with him having to do with the different neighborhoods, the areas inside of Washington DC that they spoke about in the presentation that we watched earlier and how each of these different districts has a specific purpose..

"But also people around the world. Thank everybody has seen that image of the capital or that image of the White House. Was there something that you took personal joy in destroying? To be honest. When you look at the city when you your your shuttled around or you walk around the city, it's a city with wide open streets with a lot of places that are the not visually, particularly interesting. So the real trick becomes how do we make all of this super interesting and super daft it to a cover based shoot. So if you ask me, I think the game the Washington DC and the game is more interesting and prettier than the Washington DC out that don't tell the Washington DC tourist board. But I really find it more engaging as well. So if you look at this area in the in the game, it's far more interesting than the chain restaurants that you see out here. So it's not just the HDR at work. None. Oh, no. It's not just the work. It it really is that the work that we put into to make each of the streets pop and to tell the stories that we need to tell with the envir-. Element that we have again this type of game super complex to deliver compelling stories because it's open world, non linear and co up focused. So yeah, a lot of the leader shoot has have this this incredible challenge of crafting very engaging narrative where we want to excel is with the environment, the the environmental storytelling and things like echoes and collectibles that fill in the law for everybody. And that you can do at your own pace talking with Chloe about her responsibility on the team as the IP. Researcher was absolutely awesome. She's the secret weapon on the team. But the thing that I kind of came away from that conversation with was in something that we touched on briefly with her that I would then impose to you as well. As this is clearly a video game. There's always going to be elements of fantasy in it to move the game play mechanics forward. Right. But where do you as a studio really has the creative lead of this team draw the line between what you want to recreate as faithfully as possible. And where you're going to take liberties that's a great question. I think I think some of our most interesting missions are in places where nobody knows what it looks like inside. So we're we're we're acting on something that has a an expectation or a legend to it. But nobody really knows what it looks like inside. We have one mission. That's based in the space administrations headquarters. I can't remember the name that we came up with it. But it's definitely not NASA. Definite. Not nest can't use NASA game now. So we we came up with our own Space Administration. And that HQ that's in Washington. Nobody knows what it looks like. But fires up your imagination. So we can really craft a level and a an experience that's super unique. And and compelling because we're we hitting all the tropes and then with apprising. So those the areas that I think, okay, nobody knows what it looks like let's lean into it and really build something that uses all of our imagination where we can surprise people as well. We have a Cold War bunker and the game which is kind of like the same thing. It's time capsule of certain time period and the United States history that super interesting to go through even just seeing some of the airplanes that we saw the airspace museum during our tour or even going through the capitol building and seem like the original. Supreme court chamber. It reminds you that Washington D C is pretty old. It's one of the oldest places in America. It's coming from Europe. It's not that. I think I think about, you know, a franchise like assassins creed, and how that really old and some of those structures still standing and in Europe. So as as old as it is it's actually quite recent. And I grew up in England and France in Paris and certain structures there that I've seen books in Oxford that are older than the United States. So it's old solid grant you that. But it's not that old. It's old for America. It is..
