Press Secretary Jen Psaki Confirms That Biden Is Colluding With Tech Giants
"You know what? Let me play Jen Psaki. First we'll play a little bit of peppermint Patty here and her just really stunning words from the lecture and I can't believe she said this and didn't no one in the White House caught it. She said this about the government's efforts now to work with Facebook, a supposedly air quotes, private company to track and flag free speech on the site. Check this out. This is a big issue of misinformation specifically on the pandemic. In terms of actions, Alex that we have taken our we're working to take. I should say from the federal government, we've increased disinformation research and tracking within the Surgeon general's office. We're flogging problematic post for Facebook that spread this information. We're working with doctors and medical professionals to connect to connected medical experts with popular with popular who are popular with their audiences with with accurate information and boost Trusted content, so we're helping get trusted content out there. You believe this? You believe what she just said? Well, do you understand that? How bad of a screw up a tactical mistake. This was why Folks. There's long precedent in the Supreme Court. Another federal courts as well. The appellate circuit level There's a long precedent establishing the fact that the government obviously because of the bill of rights and freedom of speech cannot quell free speech outside of very limited conditions. Everybody gets that right. You're frequently here. If you say fire in a movie theater, by the way, your band and muted instantly from any social media feed. I have, you know, you know the well. The government can stop free speech. You know, fire in a movie, too. There's no fire in a movie theater. It was an Oliver Wendell Holmes thing that cases since been tossed that that's not the standard. That's not this and stop saying that that's a leftist thing because they do no homework at all.
Why Makers Struggle to Get Things Done
"I read a line the other day. That i keep thinking about its from wendell berries novel hannah coulter that. I have been quoting a lot from lately. Here's the line. People are living as if they think they're in a movie. They're all looking in one direction toward a better place and what they see is no thicker than a screen. What they see is no thicker than a screen. I'd love to know what wendell berry had mind when he wrote that or rather what the character. Hannah had in mind when she thought it. But i deeply resonated with it. Even though i can't fully explain why. And maybe that's part of what i'm noticing myself over the last several months i'm resonating with a lot of things and holding pieces and parts fragments and flotsam. I'm collecting but i'm not arranging. And i like the collecting collecting as good and necessary collecting as part of what i do. I collect stories. I collect ideas images. Conversations beauty poetry and quotes but collecting is not. Creating collecting is not making to speak plainly. Y'all it's been a minute since i've made stuff and that is true. With two small exceptions one exception is actually this podcast for four years. These ten to fifteen minute podcast episodes have kept me sane crafting something with a bit of a slant something to help create space for your soul and mind to take a breath before we make our next move. I've loved doing this. I will love continuing to do this. But it's not very much content every week. Second as maybe silly as it sounds posts on instagram. Or something that i have continued to create. I don't post every day. But i do post every week and those small squares photos images and captions are form of making for me these days. Sometimes it's the only form. I get do right privately. And of course that counts too but it's inconsistent at best and i hope you don't hear this as a complaint but just a statement of the fax in two thousand nine paul. Graham wrote an excellent essay called schedule managers schedule every now and then i pull it up to read to remind myself no. I'm not crazy. And i haven't lost my creative edge. I've just become accustomed to working in a manner that is directly opposite from how i'm wired now if you've never read the essay. Here's the gist. Paul graham writes that there are basically two types of schedules amaker schedule and a manager schedule. Here's a quote directly from essay. The manager schedule is for bosses. It's embodied in the traditional appointment book with each day cut into one hour intervals. You block off several hours for a single task if you need to but by default you change what. You're doing every hour when you use time that way. It's merely a practical problem to meet with. Someone finds an open slot in your schedule. Book them and you're done

Social Media Site Gab Is Surging, Even As Critics Blame It For Capitol Violence
"The amount of election-related disinformation online has dropped dramatically at after several media platforms band president trump. Almost two weeks ago. Facebook twitter pinterest instagram spotify twitch suspended trump and several of his allies on january eighth two days after the deadly insurrection at the capitol and since then misinformation on those savings as plummeted by more than seventy percent. This according to the research firm signal labs dr thompson staff writer at the atlantic joins us from washington as he does every monday and derek. This should not be surprising. Studied by cornell in october showed that globally around the world. President trump was the largest driver of false information about the coronavirus. Still your thoughts on this ban. Reducing disinformation by seventy percent. I think it's pretty straightforward Donald trump is the former in chief. He has been missing former chief for all four years of his presidency. He has tens of millions of followers. So anyone else who was similarly dishonest or similarly disinterested in truth Gonna reach nearly as many people because they don't have tens of millions of followers on twitter and so of course banning him from the site is absolutely reduced this information. It's it's made it harder for him to put stuff into the public waterways of of information and it's been hard to re tweet him or to jump on conspiracy theories and then embellish them as as we have seen so often on twitter on facebook across social media so it's not surprising at all and this is i think exactly what a lot of social media critics have then predicting for years. They've said if you directly. Take on the leading mongers of disinformation. You're gonna be able to erase it from the site. Yeah okay but quite couple questions. Zig no found that twitter mentions election fraud. Went from two point. Five million to just over six hundred and eighty thousand it reports that hashtags related to the insurrection at the capitol dropped a core across platforms by about ninety five percent. Twitter by the way also banned seventy thousand accounts affiliated with ridiculous and baseless cunanan on conspiracy theory so first question given how immediate the impact was. It doesn't show that these platforms could have done this sooner. I think this is tough. So social media has in the last decade banning. What i acquainted with the wild west in terms of its regulation they haven't exactly applied laws evenly. They don't necessarily even have laws. The kind of regulation that you need to apply across social media platforms facebook twitter etc doesn't exist at the federal level yet and as a result there was a little bit of a lese sayre anything goes sort of feel like and if you've ever seen a television show removing about the wild west in the middle of late nineteenth century that's essentially what you had Online now we're starting to see the law creep into the proverbial wyoming's of twitter and facebook. They're starting to really take action against people that very clearly violated terms of service. And in this case you know incite violence basement conspiracy theory. So i'm not surprised at this happened I think that the incident of one six the insurrection. The capital siege Essentially served as a litmus test And you saw a lot of social media companies essentially act around that. But i think we need rules going forward because hopefully fingers crossed. You're not gonna have moments like the capital siege or that insurrection every single week but you still need some law going forward determine who stays on the site and who violates the terms of service so much. They have to be platform. Well wait a minute. Isn't this though. Whack-a-mole i mean doesn't this mean that president trump and his allies and white supremacists who follow him and average voters will just gravitate to or create other forms. Really interesting question. So on the one hand i totally agree with you If they're kicked off of facebook kicked off of twitter they're just gonna go to some place like gabar parlor but with parlor for example we saw that parlor itself was somewhat d. platform. Or at least unserved. You had companies that were providing both its servers technology and discover ability. Essentially say you have proven yourself beyond the pale and we don't want to work with you anymore. So we'll see where these people go because they're going to go somewhere right now. I think they're probably going to this other social media site called gab But it raises the prospect that today you know you look at a place like facebook and twitter and it is inclusive of a huge wide variety of ideologies. Far left to far right. But what happens when social media sites essentially. Start to buy kate by ideology. Where say you know. The centre-left is on twitter and conservatives are on You know gab And then the leftist go onto some other platform. It means that are already fractured already. Somewhat shattered sent to the shared reality in america is going to become even more fractured an even more fragmented

Judge rejects attempt to block nearly 127,000 drive-thru votes in Houston area
"127,000 drive through votes. Hast by Harris County voters are now In the hopper to be counted. The Republicans, the GOP They let a court challenge to try tohave the drive thru balance tossed And that challenge has been rejected by U. S District Judge Andrew Hanen. Just came down this afternoon. And this was a last minute effort. Yeah, it's a Suze affirming. I just wanted to make sure Harris County is Houston. I've been to Harris County. I've been to Houston. I just just double check and make because I'm out of Texas resident. I've never lived in Texas. Just making sure Accuracy is very important to me, but there was a last ditch effort. To stop the drive thru voting And a lawsuit was filed almost a week ago. Last Tuesday, October 27th by Republicans and Republicans in Texas and Harris County wanted an invalidation. Of 127,000 balance that were cast. At thes drive thru voting places in the Houston area in Harris County. The petition, according to the Houston Chronicle, argued that drive thru voting was not allowed under the Texas election code. The GOP challenge was spearheaded by Republican activist Stephen Hosea. Wendell champion. The Honorable Stephen tough and Sharon Hempel. Drive. Thru voting is not recognized in the Texas election code. This is, according to the Republican led petition. Collinses Drive. Thru voting scheme allows any and all Harris County registered voters regardless of whether they are permitted to do so under the Texas election code to engage in early and Election Day drive thru voting The Texas Supreme Court denied the petition Sunday while a similar case. It was before. Ah Hannon in federal court. The Texas Supreme Court did not issue an opinion on the ruling on Sunday, and the move marks the second attempt to shut down drive thru voting in Harris County in recent weeks to dismantle drive thru voting in Harris County. So you know what this means? The Republicans in Harris County in the Houston area, the Republicans clearly think that this is advantage. Biden If this is advantage, Democrat That Democrats that liberals Are more prone, inclined. To go to the drive through balloting locations when they were in operation. And now we have this ruling. From a federal judge just out this afternoon. That the over 127,000 of these votes that have already been cast Will be counted. So the Republicans, the GOP led court challenge has failed.
Health insurance whistleblower: I lied to Americans about Canadian medicine
"When I first moved to New York from Canada back in two thousand, I went to visit a park. And I made the mistake of sitting down in the grass and something bit me. In New York. That's probably the best thing that could happen to you sitting on the ground. So the bite got worse and I didn't have any health insurance but I had to go see a doctor who so I went to a clinic in my neighborhood and they were gonNA charge me like a lot of money. No welcome to America me a lot of money and I was not used to paying money to go see a doctor. So the whole thing was like super foreign they would try to explain to me what was happening and I did not understand and I would talk to my friends and people about what was going on and I was like trying to figure it out and they're like, yeah. But isn't this better than what you had in Canada? and. They would say things like. You know I thought Canadians waited forever to go see a doctor and I thought Canadians couldn't get the treatments that they needed and and I will always remember this detail. They would say Canadians die in hallways they die lying on gurneys in the hallways of hospitals waiting for treatment and the people that said this to me were not conspiracy minded types. These were people who I knew and I respected and I just was like, where are you guys getting these stories from? So, flash forward to this past summer, and I'm scrolling through twitter I. I see this article by someone who used to work in the Health Insurance Industry and the headline according here is. I sold Americans ally about Canadian medicine big old lie. This was the guy who had made up all of those lies I'm I'm at fault here, and then the work I'm doing now is to make amends for all the work that I did. To perpetuate those beliefs those miss about the Canadian system. This is Wendell Potter he ran the PR DEPARTMENT OF CIGNA Health Insurance for a long time. Now, he's a whistleblower when I talked to him, he told me that part of his job was to run campaigns to specifically bad mouth. Healthcare. Because for decades, one of the biggest fears of the insurance industry in the United States was that Americans would discover that just to the north was a place that had essentially no health insurance companies. A place where the government ran healthcare systems a place where people live longer than Americans and have lower infant mortality rates of place called. Canada.

A New Way To Respond To Old Problems
"Another way that you can make a day better if it's not going to good. Are Actually, you don't even have to wait for it not to go good some of these things if we would do them on a regular basis, we wouldn't experience as many bad days and have to fight them off how about doing something new that will keep your life from being stale and stagnant because nothing has changed for the last twenty five years. I'M GONNA. If you don't like change well, get ready for. Boring. And then. If, we stop learning and growing were breathing but not truly alive. Joyce Meyer said. Oliver Wendell Holmes said a mind stretch by new experience can never go back to its old dimensions. Now, I believe that learning. Can actually add a little exciting element. To our life every day maybe the biggest thing we need to learn is a new way to respond to old problems. So here's a little story for you. Once upon a time complained or father that her life was miserable and she just didn't know how she was going to make it. She said I'm tired of fighting struggling all the time. It just seems after one problem is solved. Another one comes right on top of our father who was a chef took her into the kitchen and filled three pots with. Water placed each one of them on a high fire wants a three pots began to boil. He placed potatoes in one pot eggs in the second pot and ground coffee beans in the third pot it then let them sit and boyle without saying a word, his daughter, the daughter Moan and Groan complain and she was impatient wondering what was he doing after twenty minutes? He turned off the burners It took out the potatoes. Put them in a bowl full the eggs out, put them in a bowl. Then he ladles some of the coffee out into a cup turn into her and ask his daughter. What do you see? She's potatoes, eggs, and coffee look closer. He said touched the potatoes touched the eggs, SIP the coffee. So she did in noted that the potatoes. were. Soft. Go take an egg and break it and after pulling off the shelves she observed that it was hard. He Nice go to sip the coffee and it brought a smile. The rich aroma brought a smile to her face. Father what does this mean? What are you trying to teach me? He then explained that the potatoes, the eggs and the coffee at each face the same adversity, the boiling water however. Each one reacted differently the potatoes went in strong and hard and came out soft and weak the egg one in fragile with a thin outer shell protecting its liquid interior. But when it was put in the boiling water, it came out hard. However, the coffee beans were unique after they were exposed to the boiling water they change the water and created something new. So when you have. Problems and you know we do have problems and. I'm well aware that some of you have some serious problems going on in your life right now. and. If you're not in this building, surely many watching TV I've gone through. Terribly difficult times in my life, but we have to be so careful that our problems don't make us. We can win be where we don't just start having a give up attitude. and. Then we also want to make sure they don't make hard and harsh. Leave us with a bitter attitude. What we WANNA do we have problems is let God use them to change us and then let us change the world around us because of what God has

"Heels Music you know lifts your spirits. So if anything happens to my day that I didn't like I can literally turn my favorite song and I can't be sad at least not for a longer period of time and it could shift me back to that positive frame of mind that I started my day. So everybody listening, you gotTa have a mood shift. To piggyback off from a psychological approach, what's happening is when you focus on something that the mood shifts that talking about other that's something in your mind or you're actually engage in some behavior what's happening when you have that mood shift or activity or thoughts you're actually creating what's called Dopamine Dopamine Bureau Chemicals in the brain that that help us feel real good and so that is a wonderful way to manipulate the brain chemistry. If you will is if you think something that brings you joy or engage in some type of behavior that does bring you joy it. Automatically, creates the dopamine which then decreases the frustration levels we have. So the more dopamine you have the more the more your day fields, brighter all of a sudden, and so that's a really good way to kind of piggyback off of what you're saying from a psychological approach or neurological approach as far as why that actually does work. So listeners definitely take Wendell's advice because that's a wonderful way to shift your mood and your book as well. You talk about a lot of other practical ways in which people can find happiness give us some more examples of that. Yes the naturally going to give you the favorite. Thing that I do to actually number one is I believe in self love. And everyone talks about that. But what does it even mean you know and first of all, you can't give what you don't have.

I, believe that you know being around trees and nature and things like that. It actually raises your vibration. It increases your happiness being out like that I believe in exercising and I'm not talking about running a marathon or being a power lifter but even working out thirty minutes a day three times a week, we'll help you and that's taking care of yourself getting your eight hours sleep at they not drinking five or six cups of coffee a day..

Cracking the Leadership Code with Alain Hunkins
"Hello, hello, welcome to dose of leadership so happy you're tuning in. Man. What a crazy week! It's been for me I feel like I've been out of touch with those of leadership I've been so busy with family one of my daughters. Unexpectedly, move up to Detroit so to deal with that. Then, I started flying again I actually started flying into. Believe this. Flu Can re second at the beginning of twenty twenty. And then I went on my first trip last week mid June. I'm recording this. On June twenty fifth. was a week ago I went to Inchon. China in Beijing or Inchon South Korea, and in Beijing China and then back to Dallas. Do you believe that? An implant again tomorrow ahead in the Paris of the world seemingly is coming back to normal. But it still feels weird out there I tell you it just does not seem the same. Even when I was in John, it seemed like World War Z. almost there was nobody the airport. Didn't have any passengers on the plane we were picking up. Cargo of all. Things didn't stay the night in China. Because we can't I wouldn't want to. Because of the Cova deal. But it was just weird, but it was good on one hand, but still a stark reminder of of how different things are and. It's a little uneasy and I'll be honest with you. Leadership has been attested and challenged. In the. Early. I really do think this is trying times for everybody but This is a great opportunity for leadership, and hopefully this show Dosa leadership is a great resource for you a free resource for you in your leadership journey. Where authentically we deal with leadership topics, and how all how helping you to become a better leader? That's what it's all about and I know I certainly been tested over the last two weeks. And I'm just like you and it's glad to be back in the saddle and giving you a great episode another great conversation. With Alon Hunkin 's Alana's. Spelled L. A. L., A. N., the French pronunciation, but demand. What a great guest! I really connected with him! We've been trying to get him on the show for quite some time. Even looking back to February and March and and we finally got it done. By about three or four weeks ago when I recorded this conversation and I'm excited to bring this to you this week. He's just a one of the great ones I really. Do. You think so? He's a sought after keynote speaker facilitators coach. He is a leadership expert. He's leadership junkie. It's right in. To the dose of leadership tribe. And he wrote a great book in fact, if I could write a book if I can wake up and morning, said Richard You could write any type of book that want. I think I would write. Like he did and cracking the leadership code. It's really good. It's about three secrets to building strong leaders. And he got. He has a lot of science behind e discovering the brain science behind leading people. He's got a lot of great real life leadership stories in the book and at the end of the day. The book is a practical leadership toolkit to become a better leader. That's what it's all about just like. This show is something that you can put in your arsenal in your tool kit and become a better leader. And I like what he uses to. In the tool kit as you know as with me, I got the four CS Alon has the three CS in to him. It's all about connection, communication and collaboration I love that I absolutely love that. So we deep dive into that in this conversation and we we also what I love about him. He's the first guest that I've had a near that. That references Frederick? And I do that a lot in my keynotes, and so I cannot stand Frederick. Winds Will Taylor and The idea of scientific management theory that came about, and they dusted revolution and I. Still reason why I don't like him is because of the way that he viewed people. He viewed workers as cogs in a machine and He's a mechanical engineer by trade. And he looked at these things, and anyway it Frederick was a Taylor in my opinion has created this. Cultural Rift that still is with us today, even though it's been debunked for the past sixty years that the type of scientific management theory doesn't work in the dynamic environments that we're dealing with today, it works in certain situations, but not overall and the mindset and the concepts that were brought forth from Frederick. Wendell Taylor are still we're dealing with them today in all the organizations particularly large organizations. And leadership is the solution the type of ship we talk about here on those leadership and Alon. Gets a one hundred percent, and so we deep dive into that. You're really gonNA. Enjoy that. My highly encourage you to go get his book. Cracking the leadership code again if I. Could write a book. It would be one like this it's it's that good

"wendell" Discussed on Making Gay History
"According this introduction on Thursday April second twenty twenty exactly three weeks since my partner Barney and I began sheltering in place at our apartment on the west side of Manhattan. Where it's very very quiet. Some of my neighbors have left town and just about everyone else is staying close to home. We know from the terrifying news reports that it's anything but quiet at the city's hospitals at my brother's Hospital in Maryland. My brother tells me they're getting ready for what they fear is a wave of very sick patients. We've been hearing from friends across the country and around the world who are staying home or working on the front lines to keep the lights on or to save lives in Kenya Rwanda the UK Russia Mexico Denmark Italy Australia and the little island of St Bart's as scary sad and enraging as these times are there's comfort in knowing that we're not alone and that's got me thinking about Wendell Sayers. Wendell lived in a different kind of isolation one. That's familiar to me because for the first seventeen years of my life. I never shared with a single person who I really was. But wendell's experience was also totally different. Because I had the privilege of growing up in a world and at a time where I could later escape that isolation and live openly as a gay person a world that's grown evermore accepting since. I came out in one thousand nine hundred ninety six our listeners. I met Wendell in our second ever episode. What feels like several lifetimes ago in the fall of two thousand sixteen at the time we posted the episode. We didn't know much more about Wendell than what he shared with me. And His nineteen eighty-nine interview beyond his birth in nineteen ninety four harrowing growing up experiences in the fact that he was the first African American lawyer to work for Colorado's attorney general. I didn't even a photograph of him. The episode image we used was a beautiful sketch by artist. Richard Pope that he created for description of what I remembered of Wendell. Since then we've managed to uncover much more about Wendell and his life and we found a photograph to. I'll tell you all about it later in this episode but I I want you to hear his voice. I hadn't planned on interviewing Wendell. I went to Denver and early. Nineteen hundred nine to speak with Elon Barker who had been active in the mattachine society in early gay organization. When elver told me a little about Wendell and his story I knew I had to meet him so I headed to. Wendell's tidy one story ranch where he lived alone just a few blocks away from the old Stapleton Airport. Wendell was eighty four years old. Which you'd never have known from how surefooted he was as he guided me through his house and into his dining room. He took a seat while I said at my recording equipment on the dining room table window was dressed for work in oppressed white shirt. Chris Gray slacks a grey striped tie and polished black shoes. I was eager to step back in time with him so I clicked my microphone to his shirt and press record.

That's coming up but first we start with our big story sorry the NFL season is only three weeks old but it's already been filled with the full seasons worth of storylines injuries star quarterbacks already seems to be the theme of Two Thousand Nineteen but what does Cam Newton's foot injury mean for the present and future for the panthers meanwhile don in Jacksonville where Star cornerback Jalen Ramsey is back at the Jaguars facility but sitting out practice with a back injury the talk is he wants to be treated but the team doesn't seem interested in meeting his demands leading to speculation that he's missing being practices for bigger reasons other than just not feeling well head coach. Doug marrone spoke about the situation this morning casinos back injury. I don't know he reported that his back with sore. You're you know I mean usually when someone reports their backs or it could have happened could help and get. I don't know I I really don't know an impasse. People that have had the same issues I haven't known about that either because there happens after the game then we know after the game and not all of the NFL dramas related to injury or money long-suffering browns fans and NFL experts everywhere have incredibly high expectations for Cleveland however a slow start on offense has new head coach Freddie Kitchens already answering questions about making changes to help us sort through the chaos makes sense of all of it. We're joined now by ESPN NFL analyst and former head coach Jack del Rio Jack. Thanks for the time today. When you see Doug marrone reacting to let's face. It was the flu so now it's a back injury. What are you see there. When you see that that information change well I think coast Monroe's doing a great job handling situation first of all Danny Green Green once said there's a time for pay and there's a time for play and right now coach. Marrone just wants to play part and Jalen Ramsey wants to pay part. He wants to get paid aide so they're in a tough spot right now. I think the lines have been blurred with the strength of the players them kind of using their leverage and so they're in an awkward situation right now but I'll tell you one thing once he got to the field Jalen. Ramsey played very well on Thursday night and the Jaguars played very well Thursday night so I I think they'll fight through this but what if your team thinking of acquiring Jalen Ramsey what is the fact that he's sitting out practice now for what may be contract issues. How does that affect your approach on actually decide siding if you want Jalen Ramsey on your team. I'd like to have them on my team. I think he's a really good football player. I'm surprised they haven't paid him. I mean what are we waiting on. The market's not go down. Go Up so to me. They're a little overdue on on paying this guy so let's flip to one or the other big stories that we just mentioned and that's pretty kitchens. Kitchens in the Cleveland browns a lot of expectations for somebody that hasn't been a head coach before what is Freddie Kitchens dealing with right now when it comes to the expectations and trying to keep this locker room together well first of all. I think he's probably got too much on his plate and he's got a really talented guy and Todd Monckton is as offensive coordinator. I would love to see Freddy Kitchens utilize the staff I mean I think it's important to do that. They took two timeouts home with them. The other night which was not good they three plays down in a critical situation and in the red zone and there are three identical plays and it's really not not effective so that's not really good play calling and I think he's a good play caller so to me. Maybe there's too much on his plate. That's for him to decide but right meal. They have to be questions. But how difficult is that because we were going to look at the browns. Roster looks incredibly talented. If there was an easy question market was Freddie kitchen hasn't been head coach before you've been head coach coordinator then a second time head coach. How much different is it when you are a rookie coach trying to figure out where to take control and we're not well. I mean me. He had a little bit of run last year where he got a chance to get his feet wet but the bottom line is there's a lot on your plate and to me. He's got a strong staff. He should utilize the staff the other thing. I think think they've gotten away from some of the things they did. Last year you know running the football play pass off it and to me they've gotten to more of a spread eleven spread around kind of operation and that really Baker Mayfield doesn't look as comfortable in that in that so I would just say they should look at that while speaking of quarterbacks looking comfortable. Let's transition to the other big story Cam Newton and Carolina. We're not sure what the status is going to be. I foot injury. What does that do for his future with the organization well. I think what does what's more important than even the injury is the fact that Kyle and came in and played so well. I mean what you saw from Kyle was anticipation and accuracy and that's that's those are two things that cam doesn't bring now cams amazing freak and he is definitely banged up right now. So Kyle's on display in Kyle had a great start in his first. It's easy for us to sort of go overboard when we see that from Kyle. How many Games from a coaching standpoint how many games you want to see from a young quarterback before you can make a judgment commit on who they are as well. That's a great point because it was against the Arizona cardinals defense. They're not exactly a stellar defense so we'll we'll get a better feel as he goes through and plays a few more games certainly his first night out you saw accuracy and you saw anticipation and those are things that have been missing while Jack. We appreciate your insight. We're glad you're on our team now. Thank you appreciate Ed Jason. The Breeders Cup is like the Super Bowl of horse racing the world's top thoroughbreds wrap up the racing season in a two day fourteen race meet at the beginning of November and this year it will be held at Santa. Anita attracted has come under scrutiny after thirty one horses have died or been euthanized since December but Santa. Anita isn't the only track that has had a spate of horse deaths. Belmont Park has had thirty horses die this year including eight since the fall meet began September September sixth or doesn't have a national regulatory body so it's up to each separate state racing commission to make rules and regulations California made some changes is in an effort to improve the safety of resources in New York is enhancing pre-race veterinary scrutiny and is further analyzing data but our next guest says death on the track is inevitable. Let's welcome Patrick. Bout of the Albany based group horse racing wrongs. We should note. We asked the Jockey Club to join join us but they were unable to provide us with the guest so I want to go. You just said are inevitable. Why well I it's. It's the way they're bred. They're bred for speed so they're they have big torsos. Spindly legs fragile ankles. They're being raced on unformed body so the typical horse does not fully mature until six the typical resources thrust into an intensive training regimen at eighteen months and raised it to which is the rough equivalent of a first grader. There is an incentive grinding of those uninformed bodies because if they're not racing they're not earning. They're being asked to do something that is unnatural to run at a break neck speed with perched whip wielding jockeys atop and of course they are commodified so the typical racehorse will change hands several times over the course of his so-called career and of course that speaks to the the constant anxiety and stress that these animals are forced to endure what Patrick without take off the table eliminating horse racing. I WanNa ask you really viably what solves this then. What solves this well from our perspective. It's this has to end you know I'm a big fan of ESPN and this show in particular but I would take issue with this being a topic Komo four ESPN because in fact horseracing resembles no other accepted sport on the planet and what other sport of the bodies about a lesson.

"Wendell over Wendell, North Carolina. Mark great to have you with us on the show today. It is always good. When to marks get together. That's that's true. We had a time. When all the guests hosts on this show called Mark. So we would have put you on the roster and you'd be doing tomorrow show, Mark. But but they've eliminated that rule and now fellows called Fred, and any and Gaylord or allowed to host the show. So you're you're out of luck on that front. What's what's on your mind today and rush maybe famous? This is my third time calling in and all my friends like I have long so. That's pretty good. That's pretty impressive. Yeah. I was thinking about Obama's first two years in office. And he wanted to close Gitmo. I forgot some of the other things and and. He was never criticized. And and he didn't get things done in his first two years. I was wanting to your thoughts on what you can you compare Russia's our? Careers. Obama's and he could. He didn't have the press to criticize him, and you know, when he flew Air Force One around New York City, you know, he didn't get any criticism for that to speak up. I I would just talk to hear your thoughts. So if you have thought about that well now on that first point, it's it's actually true. They loved all the sort of show biz excess of the Obama Air Force One and the mode. He he flew at full swan. I think to some ice cream parlor about forty minutes away from the White House in Virginia when he went to Los Angeles. There was a pregnant lady who they wouldn't let cross the road to the hospital because all the roads had been closed for a for Obama's. Visit they flew the first lady and her daughters from Belfast Dublin, which is a one hour road. One drive at the spending two million dollars a day. You know, I think that's that's one of those rough guide travel books Dublin on two million dollars a day. And nobody minded about that. Because as you say Mark Obama had the press on his side. He also had his party on his side. If you recall at twenty ten they were prepared to take the hit losing the so-called, Ted Kennedy seat to Scott Brown in order to jam Obama CAD down the throats of the American people ram it down the gullet with a mallet, regardless. Whether the American people wanted it or not because they knew that the Republicans would not have the guts to repeal it. Now, you imagine if the House Republicans in the Senate, Republicans and McConnell and Ryan had been that determined to get the wool through in the first two years, and they didn't. And that's the difference. Really? I think between between Trump and Obama is Obama had the wholehearted support of the media and the wholehearted support of his party in congress and Trump was basically being subverted by. By his own party, particularly in the fig in the figure of Paul Ryan. And also by people around him, and in that sense. It's it's remarkable. He was able to get as much done as he did. But I do think that the Trump presidency, which is a phenomenon basically, some basically the American people said Wes where seek a both options, we don't want Hillary, and we don't want a Jeb Bush type Republican. And so we want something else. And I think I think I hope I hope Donald Trump understands that he will succeed in so far as he is something else that he was not elected to be a conventional Republican president. And in that sense. I think the big difference is that the the basically instead of having as Bama did a party that would go to the wool for him in congress. He had a. Party that was basically just trying to just pretending to get go along with him. And in large part sitting it out in congress. Mark. Okay. Very good points. Thank you very much. Thank you, Mark. And we will try to have a chain. I think we need to change this once upon a time whatever it was five six years ago, all the guests. So some this show where coal Mark. And I think we need to we need to reinstitute. I get a few marks back on the Ross says ridiculous having to outsource the guest hosting to Canadian marks. When they're when a perfectly proper American marks who would be willing to do the show. Let's go to Bill in Raleigh North. Carolina. Bailed your live on the Rush Limbaugh show. What's on your mind? I wanna thank you for taking my call and originally I am from Flint Michigan. I had a friend that helped us get the hell out of there. But hopefully, everybody in Flint still doing good without any water. Okay. That's good. But the reason I called on a serious note is I have five grandchildren and they're getting older now. And I'm concerned. I mean, when I was growing up the president of the United States, I'd never had the opportunity, but if I did it would be the utmost respect and today, do I raise my grandkids and say, hey, if you don't like the president, you go ahead and call them anything you want. Yeah. This is this is a I don't know whether we've lost Bill, but this is a a change you there Bill. Yeah. I'm here. Okay. Yeah. No. I think this is a huge change this idea now. And it's it's been around for a generation now where we basically, except we basically except ever since the the Bush era, the two thousand election that essentially a half the country questions the legitimacy of the president. And it's a difficult thing. Because if you if you most systems divide the head of state from the head of government, that's the way it is that well, that's the way it is in Canada. You have the Queen. And you have the prime minister in in Germany, you have a non-political president. And then you have the chancellor. That's the way it is in most systems, and it's very difficult when you basically have with each election of a particularly of a Republican you have people who actually deny his legitimacy because he is he is the embodiment of the state. It's not just that he's the head of government, but he performs national state functions to and it becomes extremely poisonous. This this hyper partisan aspect where people refuse web, for example, the inauguration. Pop pop.

But the real voters is this other person we do that right light me laurel Libya, Dont'a stage for our force on add with the actual target organ, and we did a pretty good job acting it out like we told Domin Wendell with a straight face. Look, we agree easy votes. Angelos gone gung ho by so they will to buy that Daffy said we were a little bit. By the fact that it was the first traveled council. So it was before they could even register how tough it is to have a tribal council or what's really say jug or at when you state. Something's brewing. Right. Like those things.

"I don't even remember what the votes were at that particular tribal council either that ended up where michael did go home but but i i do think that i just feel like that was one of those situations where she she she i think she wasted i think she wasted it she the votes were that she forced to tie between michael and laurel and then they voted michael right and what's funny to me is that michael actually would have been better served to not make up the story about the immunity idol because that was part of what made her do what she did yes it would have been great to blindside wendell but if they're trying to blindside window and michael pulls out his immunity idol that he doesn't actually have but she has been convinced he has she's thinking wendell is going to pull his out and i would think the same thing at that point because that would be exactly what wendell should do you know if you're on that tribe and michael pulls his will crap you better pull yours out because otherwise you're in danger and that puts kellyn endanger that's why she used the votes the way she did for that eventuality if michael hadn't made up that story then she would have no reason to worry that wendell would put out his idol and it could have actually worked yeah yeah no that's a really good point because that's what truly threw her off and she did talk about because he had so many particular details regarding the idol that that's why she really believed him and didn't ask to see it so yeah i mean that's that's definitely a fair point that if if he had just presented it with listen i'm trying to stay in the game here i'm willing to work with you i'm going to vote for wendell i don't have anything i've got nothing like i'm done i've got no more no more tricks.
