She sent out tuesday suggests. She's gone beyond echoing talking points from the white house. She tweeted taliban is asking not telling. We are quote. We are asking the americans. Please change your policy and don't encourage afghans to leave. This lunatic is literally praising the taliban this nut. I mean critics of course immediately pounds. The washington examiner is chief. Congressional correspondent wrote. Are you serious. Gop strategist mike. Whitlam matlock shot back asking at gunpoint. It's one thing to show for the biden ministration.

"I'm gonna tell you my secret to solving problems on a cruise. that absolutely sure will work for you too. I like things to be spot on our crews. But i suffer from one of the biggest problems in the world when it comes to complaining and that is i'm british whilst we are masters at moaning send me amongst ourselves. We hate to make a fuss and actually physically go and complain. So i tend to suffer in silence and rely on that classic british stiff-upper-lip and keep calm and carry on mentality. Even when things on right until i had a stroke of inspiration and found the way that gets crews problems sold that not only works better. That works within my limitations. I'm gary bambridge and let's go crews complaining like most of you. I normally go to the reception the front desk guest relations desk or whatever it happens to be called on that particular ship. When i have a problem you know. The drill usually long lines techy and push passages. They're all having a go at the staff behind the desk and basically the staff pretty expertly battery the complaints and issues and nothing gets resolved other than really minor issues like a wrong charge on my bill or perhaps a faulty crews card. I never had any substantial problem. Solve this way like a noisy cabin. Sorry there's nothing we can do. Is the usual outcome then. I hit a really big problem where i decided. I absolutely had to find a way to get this problem solved. I was on a cost of cruise trip. I was in an ocean view cabin. And i couldn't go to sleep as when we started selling there was constant metal clanging noise. I just could not envisage going on like that for another six nights in the morning or whitlam to front desk and after waiting in that line. We're all familiar with for ages. All i got was will look into it. Nothing happened as usual. So i waited about earplugs to try that night. That didn't help. I even not on the next cabin to try and find out if they were having the same problem. The problem i had is. They didn't speak english and they just shrug me often. Thought i was a little bit crazy. I stayed awake really really late. That night loves absolutely so exhausted. Eventually i did go to sleep. The cruise was turning into my absolute nightmare. Before i does offer was about two. Am in the morning. I realized i had to find a new way to get this fixed. And it came to me that i couldn't be the only one who suffered from this problem in this cabinet and i began to wonder other dud or other problem cabins onboard cruise ships of the crew..

"They wanted to leverage and this brings us to the third goal is that nixon was trying to figure out how to resolve the vietnam war. Which was an incredible mess by ben for the united states Now according to winston lord what they wanted to do was ideally. I mean and they knew this wasn't going to happen. They ideally wanted to get beijing to agree to stop aiding hanoi or at least aiding hanoi as much as it was realistically what they wanted to do is say beijing could put a little pressure on hanoi to negotiate some kind of end to the war with the united states and this was at the same time something that they were planning to do in moscow because nixon visited moscow three months later with a similar mission and so part of this was about the vietnam war to try to figure out some kind of resolution so yes he was the cold warrior who went to china and shocked everyone but at the same time he had his reasons and they were different from what you might think.

That was on the twenty eighth of july seventy one after it emerged that kissinger had indeed gone to picking on the secret mission and embarrassed the australian and government.

I've been testing out some Applications which happened to be snaps as you'll be unsurprised to hear and discovering some interesting issues bugs problems especially with things that have been tested on a pie before so. Yeah it's it's been quite interesting. The first the first challenge i had was Getting jewel screen working it turns out was my monitor. It was bad so yeah yeah. I can't quite figure out what's wrong with but it seems to not be telling the host computer will the ideas so just shows up as a mold. It's a doesn't seem to count figure out. Why your montez identical. Yes i to next each other than they exactly the same and one of them. Just doesn't doesn't show any idea so what you can do is you can dump the e. d.

But it's an immensely multiple game. So in the in the interim people have done things like developing improved meshes and textures. Which you can install mods so the if you're playing it a high resolution on a modern computer you can have a much nicer highrise experience which is quite cool. Even though all of the game play exactly the same and they the same textures but just upscaled and tweaked a bit where they brand new textures. There's various options so some of them yet they've completely like create whole new models and new textures to guy whitlam but the one of the ones i've installed because they won't be replacing every asset in the game is there's a project which has just taken the based textures and then used some i l. stuff to just upscale them up to four k resolution compatible and then you just stick those in it replaces the standard ones and they look a lot like not. There's not any more detail but they don't look as blurry when they get when they're on a high resolution monitor amazing which is quite cool..

"It's been more than a week since the us presidential election joe biden of course has claimed victory whereas the president is yet to concede defeat but when donald trump eventually leaves office the question. We have to ask ourselves is is trumpism. Really finished after all the media conventional wisdom the new york times washington. Post the major networks. Cnn msnbc all that conventional wisdom is that the twenty twenty election represents a repudiation of trumpism and what's trump luckily to do after he leaves office well for more. Let's turn to patrick. J buchanan senior adviser to president reagan nixon and ronald reagan. Pat has been a regular fixture in america's opinion pages and cable television shows for generations. Ninety ninety two and ninety six pat buchanan ran for the presidential nomination of his party. The republican party on america first platform pass walking back to you between the lines. Good to your tom now. Let's start with the election itself to spotted trifecta of crises health economic racial the us congressional and presidential contests were very tight. How do you account for that. I think there were tight for this reason. The covid virus which hammered us in march and april and then all during the summer and full took the lodge. That's two hundred and thirty thousand americans and they induced an economic decline unrivalled since the great depression. And then you have to racial turmoil in the country. And the wake of the killing of george floyd in minneapolis riots. And and things like that. So he's really damaged trump in the eyes of the public and his administration and normally they would've killed any presidential candidate. But i will say that in the fall. When trump was further behind he basically one mechanic team won the battle against biden. It was surging at the end of the campaign but he did not get over the top or at least so far so i think what you can say is trump and trumpism won the campaign. They lost the election because of the burdens. They had to terry which were too happy to cross the finish line. And let's not forget that in the late up to the election the metric conventional wisdom the polls the pundits. They predicted a democratic sweep. A blue wave washing the republicans out of power capturing the senate and delivering an alleged democratic congressional majority if the democrats did indeed have a clean sweep of the congress and the white house what would radical progressive in the american takes. What would that have made if you had nancy. Pelosi in control of the house and chuck schumer and control. The should i which looks less and less likely now and preston biden into white house. Biden's problem would be the tremendous pressure from the progressive left wing of this party to impose his leftist agenda. The party home to the country in the first two years of his administration. And i think it would be virtually impossible biden to resist the democrats cheap to kill the filibuster. Which would eliminate the ability of the republicans to stop their agenda and we would be off to the races with medicare for all the green new deal statehood for puerto rico statehood for dc. Defunding the cops. Pack the supreme court the whole left wing democratic agenda. They would try to ram through with fifty one votes. In the senate and biden frankly would be restraining force because republicans wouldn't be able to do it if they lost the filibuster in the senate which is what. Barack obama urged the democrats to take away if they win the senate okay now bought and has pasta to sydney electoral college. Votes needed to win the white house now given that it's very hard to prove widespread electoral fraud pat. Why want trump just accept defeat. Here's trump is demanding that he be allowed to play out last play of the deal. Because i think he feels he has been treated horribly by the democrats and the liberals in the press and he's not gonna do them a favour. He's got a right to make sure. The counselor made and certain things happen by certain dates. He's not going to speed up the transition. It's not gonna be a pleasant transition at all. He's going to treat them the way they felt. They treated him when he came in with the russia investigation and all the rest of it. So i think what you're getting is. Trump is looking at upon this if it succeeds is a hostile takeover of the government of the united states. And he is acting to resisted with every legal constitutional weapon. He has so it's <hes>. This is not a cordial country power at all. Okay but with dany. Before the nineteen sixty presidential election between richard nixon and john f kennedy. That was very taught. There was a lot of speculation about electoral fraud in texas and illinois. And that of course benefited. The democrats won that election now. Apologies for the very scratchy. Sound quality of these vintage news report from sixty years ago. but he's nixon. Your boss pat here. He is at four. Am at republican headquarters. After the election conceding. Defeat to and and results shows come in <hes>. if the present trend continues <hes>. If mr kennedy and senator kennedy will be the next president of the united states senators kennedy now. And i want you know that. Certainly this trend has continued and he does become our next president that he will have my. That's richard nixon conceding. Defeat john f. kennedy in nineteen sixty pat buchanan. Why can't trump do a nixon accept defeat graciously that at four am gathering. My wife was present. She worked for richard nixon and the nineteen sixty campaign and travel. The country would and the point is that was a different time in a different country. That america's today america's bitterly divided and one of the contributing factors is the is the belief correct in my view that donald trump was denied. Not only a good transition but donald trump was investigated by the fbi and during the transition. They went after his state of the fbi did and they had a two year investigation beach. Kim they try to defeat him then they tried to overthrow him. And i think trump feels this and he says i established nothing. They can go. I mean they can go too far as i'm concerned and we're going to run this old way out and make sure every ballot is counted and all the towns are accurate. And whether or not we're going to go to court and exercise our rights and we're not going to pretend otherwise that this is a pleasant for easy transfer of power this was a hostile takeover and trump's view. I mean they're campaign run against him former first lady. Michelle obama is already talking about the house and he could and racism and the rest endemic pain in what he come folks voted for. So i think look you gotta divided country and there's no sense pretending otherwise and trump is not gonna gauge any pretense.
Are Australia's security agencies getting too big?
"Well, you'd have to be living under a rock not to notice that Australia, is radically different security environment than walls just two years ago. The Prime Minister he's locked into the situation to the nineteen thirties, and in the last six months, we've seen a massive increase to the budgets for defense and our intelligence agencies. Now, the external threats are undeniable. You just think of the rising power of China, but are we at risk of undermining our political freedoms by expanding the powers of security agencies too much.

Sitting out what each what agencies Australia needed, what each one should do, and what should not do how they should interact with each other, how they should interact with departments with individual ministers with the cabinet and cabinet committees and with the international partners Those we now know is five is and he emphasized a number of things. He particularly emphasized the intelligence system should serve the whole of government and not be unduly influenced as it was when he started by one or two very powerful departments, and towards that end, he said that should be a central coordinating agency which would only be invoked with assessment and he allocated collection assessment and dissemination different agencies. this one would be only concerned with assessment on like the American CIA and with its the independence of its. Assessments guaranteed by legislation. To, be independent from ministerial oh departmental. Precious. and.

The book of the back of the book were starting at the ending. This part is spoken by Abbey. Who's one of the two narrators abby? And her brother. Charlie tell the story and riptides and Abbey's at Queensland University on campus and she says the students want change. They're hungry for it in other parts of Australia. People struggling to keep up with change. Feel like the hurtling into the future without helmets but out premier has dug his heels in and is resisting every attempt by the federal government to civilize. Queensland Peterson makes it clear. He loads students feminist darkies homos and communists he laughs at the media while sales estate over seas developers every bit of beach front and any land that can be mined and looks away as heritage listed buildings bulldozed in the dead of night. It doesn't seem to matter that he's barely able to string a sentence together. He rules with iron fisted resolve. Ooh This is a little bit like now. You mentioned abby husband. Mark is one of your characters. What's his job marks a TV journalist. And he's he's very political in nature and at that time. I think it mattered. I wouldn't say more than ever or certainly not more than now but it was very important. Queensland have an alternative voice There was an alternative voice in the radio. That was footer. No actually for troubles. Ed didn't exist at. This point. Came later but it was very important for the media to offer an alternative to what was being told to the people by the government. Yes so marks. A bit of a celebrity seen on the news of filing reports. He's also the husband and father but has the mate. Jim Tell us a bit about the dinner party. The party was when Abby and her husband go to Jim and his wife's place for dinner and I again. I'm I'm not sure that things that happened in the past. Don't don't just keep happening forever so this is probably something that could have happened last week. But Jim admires mark because mock santelli mocks famous. And he's got an audience and the women have to just play not groupies but they just have to sit and listen while the minute mile. One another and it's it it gets Abbey's Gart because she. She loves her husband. She admires his work but she knows that. There are a lot of people out there doing important things in hospitals and schools and making roads and cleaning up our garbage and they don't get this kind of education and of course you know Jim. Thanks his wife by giving her pet on the bottom for making a Nice Pavlova Louisville's leader attitude to women going back to union to finish her law degree. What does the Father Think about this? Well I think we can get accustomed to read from page one hundred one as the father said it was enough your mother nothing to scoff at. Its dignified work to take care of you. Home husband and raise a family and this he goes on so the father talking to his daughter says well. Why do you want to be a lawyer? Then what are you trying to prove? Martin's a good salary. You'll make life harder by being at university now. You have kids to look after who are doing that. I suppose you expect him to as well as his job. So you can go off and do what you want. Which by the way he flicks his hand angrily in my direction. Plenty of lawyers in the world without you. You don't need to show off now. Her father has also very distinct views of what son Charley is doing. What is he doing? I'm Charlie leaving his best live. He finished Uni and then he mocked around bit and took off to Bali where he serves and he Works in a restaurant. There aren't very many around that time a he and a couple of nights. I've been to cafe and Khuda near the beach pen. Just hasn't a good time. Sorry you know his his comeback and he knows he has to talk with his father but he feels that he's really grown away. Well let's let's get his point of view from page fifty six. Oh God I hit my reading drawing people mental Okay so Challenge wondering about if he went and had a beer with his dad. Would that be like what would we talk about how incredible it is to surf the endless breaker Illawarra to mind altering after mushrooms would he fades as chickens? We've reached the age where he wants my approval more than I want his. Which makes me feel kind of bad for him and makes him boring company? Every says he's worried about me being directionless but I reckon when I talk about my life in Bali his out of his depth maybe even jealous makes me tired to think about it so he has no this this mutual disrespect. I think between this the Connection Between Wartime Charlie surfing and abby very comfortable in knowing her skills in water currents the title is riptide. What's retired? I think a part of growing up in Queensland Brisbane is not on. The coast is a familiarity with water. We have to learn to swim very young. I grew up in Brisbane. I'm not sure if that was the same down here but we had to learn to swim very young. We spent a lot of time at the beach and going to various off the coast. Islands stride broken bribery. And so we all know about rips which are dangerous because it's the water pushing and pulling at the same time and you lose control of of where you WANNA go. So water is very important in Queensland Life I think and the idea of different forces pulling your round seemed to make sense to me as well as the memory of the father is a teacher and he teaches them about physics and Abby remembers learning about every action has having a reaction and Charlie talks about Karma so how these two lean. I'm I'm not enough of a philosopher to explain the difference between Action and reaction and and Action IN CONSEQUENCE. I guess calmer and the laws of motion but I do feel that. The idea of motion having consequence is yeah so on Australia. Day Nineteen seventy four. Ed Behead to cancel the neighbors neighborhood gathering. What can I be doing stand? There's there's a flood so they need to go rescue the neighbor. Louis Abbey's best friend and Louis envious of Abbey ability to be supermom or is she. You have happy thinking about the flood from page twenty eight right. This is This is after the flood is gone and flood slave a lot of Damage in their wake. The flood wasn't part of my plan. Not Part of any once. These few days will derail us for months. I know now that I should have recognized the flood as a warning accordion. Everything I thought I could control was uncontrollable life. Insistent persistent was about to take on new shapes Shimmery and unpredictable as petrol on a wave with giving you back story about all of this but the book actually starts on Friday the sixth of December Eddie has picked up Charlie from Brisbane where he's flown in from Bali and they drive into the file this farm. It's number of hours away and now Costa Alexandra's going to read the first paragraph of her book. Riptides Charlie is speaking. I wake when shots she reaches across man grabs the Steering Wheel. A cow honed. Braise white beams flare at us then pitched to the right for an instant? A rump of blue metal shines into the headlights. I elbow my sister out of the way and take the wheel leaning back hard so don't Slam my head into it. Abby flattens her hands against the dashboard as I break and strain to control our sideways skid. She screams my name. We sling to one side of the narrow dirt road and the other cast links the opposite way like wrong ends of a magnet made to meet we swelled to an angled stop pointing into scrappy land. So what happened This isn't giving away. Don't WANNA rate 'cause this all happens in the first paragraph right into it they. They've caused an accident as I say because there are two people in the car but obviously there was only one driver and they were both asleep. Both the driver and the passenger were sleep in. The car forced another driver off the road. Who was pregnant and she does her. There are police involved and Sergeant Roberts certainly wants to solve the mystery because they is a mystery. What's the mystery of the car accident? AGAIN. I I worry about giving away too much. But the the mystery is who was the woman and she what. She didn't just die in the car. She was outside the car she she was when the police found her she was lying on the ground in a way that makes no sense to them. She couldn't possibly have fallen that way and her window was down and there was a storm afterwards so none of it makes a lot of sense to them and they figure out fairly quickly that someone took her out of the car and Leho very carefully on the ground so there is the mystery and pick up the father bring back to Brisbane but he becomes the suspect lots of tension in the house and I wonder how the book will hold this because we know about this everything that's happened in the first paragraph and sort of you know. Mark is job as a journalist. He picks up this tension and then he's called away. Why Christmas Day? Why why not cold away. So he's moved out of the out of the household so we have a release of a little bit of tension for a little while. What happened seventy four Christmas Day? Oh I'm I'm Which which were we hitting. Sorry just cyclone Tracy sorry. Okay Yeah just to yes. There is a cyclone up north and our so he off to that and these. Epi feels leave with the self and her dilemma. It will make my life worst and possibly destroy the lives of everyone around me if I tell the truth. Better to hold it in and manage the pain now. This is Kirsten Alexander's great rotting that she can move the plot and still carry the tension oil very

"Lives and then we're creating idols. I always think I'm not a big team sport watcher. But I've always. I'm always amazed as we listen to people. Talk about sports like they talk about their team right. We did what did you do. You sat on the couch and watched you didn't do didn't do anything in that game. You know it's it's the idea of the ownership that they have they get so invested in it as as if they own it you know it was funny because you know I I was talking with my uncle wants and we're talking about the fact that people talk like you're he's hearing people we'll talk about the LA rams when they're in L. A.. And he was like we're talking about our team. Did this. We did that. And he's like you don't own the team. I WHY DO I. It's my team. You know I can say that. And it was just funny because he had a different perspective he actually did on the team. He did have apart but he hired the ball because he didn't there. Were a bunch of people. But you know there's a different perspective and you end up seeing how people get so so I guess engrossed in it that they lose their own identity in the identity of their team and that becomes like everything. I mean. It's amazing to me. You see I will see even professing believers that almost go to blows over sports like disagreeing over sports teams. But I just don't get it but grand. I'm not a sports watcher. So but I think it's like what you're saying if it becomes something that it encroaches so much in our in our life that it overtakes the priorities and I think that's where I think we'd all I'm going to assume we all would agree. It's sinful when that happens but let me flip it now because Ns this for the for the person like drama was saying you have people who are Dr who start to judge other people because of the sports you watch the books you read the music you listen to the movies you watch and they start to judge you. Is there a fair level of judgment that people can have biblically in in these different areas. Where people could be enjoying culture is there? Are there lines where we could say okay. We should judge that lines. We say you know what that's Christian liberty we we shouldn't we shouldn't say what you guys think. I guess if I'm correctly I'm thinking it depends on nine right the content like you know disadvantage depending on Whitlam's crossed in that like Our liberties by about sexual themes. I'm going to an extreme. Because you know just to drop words line is strong so like where basically where where would you. Where would you draw your lines? Where do you see? The line should be drawn. Where do you think that I don't like okay so me personally? If you've been on the sexual themes I what is being shown is. It's a sex scene or is it just a nude food pop pop pop pop out. You know because you see if there's one scene. There's probably show brash stone disarmed breath and it's throwing out when it's GonNa get a rating of a Ma because he's gonNA show. Nudity does is there so is that enough to not watch completely for me. That would allow John. Offer me me personally. No that that's not GonNa bug me. There's not I'm not going to get an less. You know. Just seen as in and out now is there a sex scene of all is they find out the sixteen about yeah. I'm not GonNa Watch that one be pornography and so as as a line draw even when it comes to when it comes on the sexual side of it when it comes to the cussing. Is there some customers that a lot of cussing you know. is is is a lot of blasphemy. Or is it glad all you know me. I don't WANNA I don't WanNa Washington thing that I noticed by they base the whole movie my blasting God I you know allow. GD's all through the movie. And everything else I wanna hear you know. Oh Oh it is once okay cool that goes to talk to somebody who may have already seen it you know and then have can tell me that happened if I'm watching it just POPs in I'm not going to cut it off because I hear once that makes sense and so it is it depends you know trying to think of something else like like I even A gory content like Violence like our like. I like films like I would like some balance and stuff like that Just the way shy and you know so I know some people say you should watch violence. Ns I'm okay watching. Violence Elms is not is not gonNa make me think murderous. AWW You want to go out and commit murderer doing these things or me. Glorifying it or say is okay. Today he got killed someone saying and just watching to me. I'm watching this art so so I guess it depends on how far something alot late even on our watch against movie here. I'm not going to watch a a movie where it just shows. Somebody like taking a knife slowly ripping. Somebody's head off like I'm not going to do that. You know it would depend on the level of of stuff to say. I guess if I can make it simple.

Yeah. However, fries couldn't wait that long. So. Good moved into Sakti. I do not believe the C I involve themselves in that it wasn't wrought point is yes. When we're talking about who's most likely to invite onto another country America or not the good, guys like series long. Come on. Come on. Come on. That's a long long list of these. Trevor, let's not forget the world to the United States spend a lot in blood and treasure to save western Europe and the world. And so tell Tehranis themselves, and they did it, well, and they didn't install a government that served their interest installed a liberal democracy in Germany. They installed liberal democracy was, which was in their interest, but it was also in the interest of the people of those countries, but it was purely selfish. Well, how was it unselfish unselfish because they were. That was setting something up for the local citizens of those countries. But the my selfish thing I could do would be to set up liberal democracies in Japan and, and Germany What was fish. it was it unselfish to do it? It was on the selfish, because they spent their own money sacrifice that the setting up of the government post the war is in the American interest have a liberal democracy in those countries, you can't side that was an unselfish act said the mom nine that, that is that is really very cynical. You want step cat site was unselfish to sit up liberal democracy in Japan. Why it was. If you were the American president, you've got. Manufacturing base wanting to sell products around the world. You want a healthy economy in other countries to sell your widgets, too. So you, you don't want another Russia. You want a consumer market that you can sell subst, too. That's why with Germany, that was Cain not to have such a and a by the balls grip of them like they did not the first World War, because it crippled the country, and I went, as you on them and said, well, actually, we want you up on your fate, again, because we want to sell you stuff and have you actually an unselfish thing to set it up? It was a selfish on that sign that bad, but. Pint, as an unselfish act to set up the, the liberal democracies, and those countries because the crazy thing that you are opposed to liberal democracies. What I'm saying it's the correct things It was a self. self living exactly time to climb. It was unselfish. That's more points. All the wonderful Americans. They really went out of the UAE did this unselfish act of setting up a liberal democracy. It was Nicole. It was completely in their interests. But you are the ones indicating that it was a unselfish act simply saying no, there's nothing unselfish about. I think you are being cynical here. Do you think it was unselfish to sit them up? Yeah, it may well have been in the ultimate long-term. Absolutely. And it was a selfish act. To be in the long term benefit, because eighties the eighties in the everyone who leaves under a liberal democracy is in the everyone's ultimate benefit to leave under that. Also as the Germans and the Japanese turned out to be better at capitalism in some respects than the Americans himselves. They produce the Germans produce the best quality products in the world and the Japanese, not that far behind, and they're selling them to the Americans agree with you a hundred on simply sighing disagreeing with you is all the wonderful, and Eric Hines, who had the communists of their heart set up liberal democracies in Germany, and Japan and on Scientology hang on a minute. Don't be glorifying. What was ultimately a decision that was of immense benefit to the Americans themselves, it only became a decision that tune it to be in the benefit to the. America's selves because of the long term benefit that accrued to those nations is nations with still in hell of a mis- Tena fifteen years after the war. It took them a long time. There was that thing that was in the movies just recently. The aftermath. It was cold and that was in nine hundred forty seven there was still corpses. Under the streets under the rubble in the straits of Hamburg is after the war was, what about the Marshall plan to, you know what the Marshall plan coast the Americans. It's got here cost about thirteen point three billion dollars at the time in during the nineteen fifties. It was an enormous money, well invested how much the aside trae costume. It cost the American. Yeah. Nothing. Yeah. And what happened with announce? Incorrect coming back, and they went kit that didn't work out this time. Let's not screw them and have another fascist uprising. Let's, let's actually slid rock valley. Actually have a martial plane so that these guys, don't collapsing fascism. Jay tick enough to think that honestly. They may have been thinking that, but why is that wrong to think that one not saying it's wrong? I'm saying if I was in their position, this is where you're getting wrong this. You're getting it wrong. I'm not saying that's wrong. I'm saying that's perfectly reasonable, correct. I would have done it. Myself wouldn't be patting myself on the back side. I'm such a wonderful person because I'm giving you all this stuff because it'd be going, you know what? It's a win win situation. That's the part that's, that's the idea, I'm trying to get to you. Object Americans big not themselves objecting to you. Big noting. That's okay. That's what I'm doing. If you had, if you had who are real slackers and didn't know they loans, and didn't paint, the houses, and that depreciated your property value. You would then offer almighty alone for you all even help you paint your house, because it's in my interest. It'll maintain the value of my property and the property of the value of the neighborhood. Is, is it something along those lines? Well, what you're indicating is that wearing integrated system of economies, and you rely on other economies to function correctly, you rely on the houses to help you. So you're integrated side, the point is it's an acknowledgement that we're integrated this night point nothing. These guys I've ever. So we, it's in people's interest to be altruism to some degree, correct. This is the difficulty of identifying true altruism because. Christian who says on doing something for somebody. I'll give that more some money earning credit from God, correct. So the critic Christian who gives money to the poor and works on the soup kitchen law. And it said tra-, but who does side with the belief that, that will be giving them an entry into heaven is, is not being altruistic in that sense? So. That's what we're giving is just wonderful. So back to the issue of you enjoying bed. You'll love because we're getting to the scotch on China. Contrast them Americans. We can trust them. Let me just say that wasn't out of the benefit of America's golden heart. There was a selfish motivation the and if don't rely on the goodwill because now help us in a Strahl as long as it's in their interest and the minute, it's not then goodbye like they might lift a finger site. So. Your house and leave the neighborhood and you're not gonna offer to come back drive back on the weekend, and mow the neighbors on just saying that when you look in historically at countries that have interfered in other countries that the list for America is a mile long compared to the Chinese lists. It's a little bit like Bill shorten where everybody hide it Bill. Sean want because being held high Jonah, but. The track record is is so much better than the American track record. In terms of interfering, and manipulating foreign governments. You can't deny that the Chinese along now that don't you play a long time. You know, the Chinese the Chinese will look out of the world for a very long time. They've only just started to become involved in the world. And then you got the road and built program, which is at they buying influence and they have buying long to investments in other countries, which they plan on converting they're going to convert the dit to give access they're going to end up with the equity left afterwards, the Chinese export one of the flaws in the liberal democratic system, which is our short-term, governments whereas I have very long term government can wipe us out until they get the government who's amenable today proposals. Don't just keep writing this. I need to. I'm not saying that the Chinese completely innocent and wonderful, but I'm just saying ways to hear that. But I'm just trying that in comparison to the Americans, please. Let's have some recognition of the some form here. I think any apprently country with the worst form of the Americans. Well, I think the, the worst, but the. Bailey country on the planet that they have to defeat some stand that, however, ignificant. Absolutely. Hell we about if you look at the if you look at this system of government, it is more is more. Compatible with. Yeah. On his government. It's open to change its open to, to being reformed whereas the Chinese government is not open to being reformed. And so then, that's what worries me L system win can eat anything Chinese government undergoing reform in the last fifty years. He's backwards in the last twenty. TNN wind. I mean, that was a glimmer of hope, in everyone's mind that they would democratize does some degree, and they, they went the opposite direction. For another tone than more in China. Yeah. Bodycam, let's do the body Cam. So at some point, we looking at article, which was basically sighing. Terrible, communism, socialism. It's responsible for all these deaths around the world than is in..
Australia's Federal Election May Be a Tight Race
"Ever since Malcolm Turnbull nearly lost the twenty sixteen election, the polls, the pundits and the bidding markets that consistently put lie in a winning position pointing to a landslide this weekend. But such is the magic politics that the federal election could be a lot closer than anyone had the raw to expect a week or whatnot agai, remember during the past half-century close vigil elections favor, the incumbent, you think of Gordon's narrow victory over whitland in sixty nine the so-called don's party or Gillard up against Abbott losing her majority in twenty ten but when oppositions wind power from the government, the victories are usually in fatty, you think of phrases massive landslide against whitland, seventy five or how smashing catering in ninety six but in politics, there are no guarantees, and the smart money is still on a lie. Victory. And according to my guest, that may be a good thing for conservatism and the nation. Australia, where told needs a shortened government to help us break out of Al complacency genital Ricksen is a columnist with the Australian. She's a board member on the institute of public affairs, and a former board member here at the get I Janet, welcome to our Tom, now you're leading conservative commentator. So naturally, many of our listeners here on between the lines. We'll be shocked to hear you say that a and prime ministership could be a good thing house on Tom. I think some of my raiders were shelter and I made that argument few weeks ago, but I think it's we've now come to the position where we need the lived experience of a shorten government to return, the labor party to the wisdom of the hawk aiding agenda. We need a short and government to force a liberal party to get through what I think, is an existential crisis identity crisis to rediscover its roots to rebuild a very confused. Brand. And we, we the voters, we need lived experience of short and government to, to deliver, what I call buyer's remorse to realize that whitland, esque mix of big promises without policies that grow the economy is not just nicotinic disaster. But a social disaster, and I really think you have to go back to the days of the Whitlam era, to, to find the level of complacency that we see today, and my colleague at the astray Lian PO Kelly code. It know that nineteen sixties grand delusion, that continued prosperity was a strategy is destiny. And it's true, we've had almost thirty years of, of economic growth, but that is not a given. So you sign in the shorten economic agenda increases the prospects of a recession, and Farley will be mudbound, reality. I think that's absolutely right. Because Bill Schoten is very honest that he's politics, the politics of redistribution not growing economic pie, and it's it's much easier by the white to redistribute rather grow the economic pie. If you think of the big reform. The hard reforms in a strategy during the eighties nineties, and the early two thousands. They were hard reforms, but they were important reforms. It liberalized the economy. We're not seeing those same kind of policies with the short and government. He's Fago economics is a slogan. It's premised on complacency is premise on emotion. Just listen is shooting in some of the might say that, you know, we're, we're experiencing an ideological seachange in the electric, the oldest twenty percent of the electorate si- fifteen years ago in two thousand and four. When you wrote that conservatism was cool on the John Howard, the oldest twenty percent back. Then they largely voted for the coalition. They've been replaced by the youngest twenty percent of voters who lift, you got social media Twitter trolls, all the ride a poll show that socialism has risen in stature, especially among these millennials. And of course you got tried unions. They luckily to be reim- powered. So have haven't times changed time certainly have changed in the environment's changed. But what? What you're saying is very much. You know, not just the liberal party and existential crisis, but the left side of politics is strong because it's buttressed by so many elements in civil society that you do not see, on the centre-right of politics strata. It's almost as if liberalism depends on the liberal party in a stray area. And if you have a liberal party that stepped away from those basic, liberal values, what's left, so it really is up to other organizations, I think, to build the foundations of liberalism in ustralia to make deeper than the liberal party cannot rest on a conviction later such as John Howard. We haven't had one since two thousand and seven and look, what's happened to liberal values in that time you've had get up. You have the unions, you have the light party and other organizations. It's up to the center right of a Strayer to rebuild to make the case for liberal values. And that's what hasn't happened. You've written the Rausing damp of the wits in the liberal party has lift the joint with dodgy foundations. And just might clear, the conservatives now would rather walk away than stand up and fought. And he also criticized the so-called modern liberals. But at these decisions by the senior liberals to shift towards the so called center at they attempts to adjust to what many political analysts, I is an increasingly more progressive political and cultural landscape. I certainly think that way in politicians nervous about, you know, their prospects that they start to put on new labels. And we're saying range of liberals call themselves modern liberals. Now, I've pressed a few of them as to what the what that means, and it really doesn't mean anything, it's just a bit of branding. I call it branding bunkum. What is the most important to be successful in politics, merger of conviction with good retail political skills? We've seen that before the last ten years, though, we've seen we've seen the party and politicians on the center, right suffer a deficit of both conviction, and, and really good retail politics now recently under Scott Morrison, I think the party has started to reimburse, for example, explain the social good of a strong economy, the virtues of lower taxes, allowing people to have more of their own money to make decisions how they spend their money. But imagine if the liberal party had more core values at the center of it story for the past ten years, it would be in a much stronger position. It's not about rebranding as modern liberal. I mean this, this guy's back today, but Cameron calling himself, a compassionate conservative, or which had Nixon, quote himself, a conservative with a heart. What does it mean if liberal parties, make the moral case for classical liberalism, you want convince voters about the purpose of a liberal governor Cosa, just to clarify, you think it's premature to read the last rods two Austrailia conservatism. Your argument, is that conservatives a losing tonight because they not farting. But Janet, we had on this program last week Tim sue pomace on the former rice discrimination Commissioner, and he I use that a short vitual Mark the end of what's derided as neoliberalism hasn't market capitalism, filed given the widespread economic inequality, wick told by because I think the evidence is just not there for, for widespread economic inequality. It's become a slogan. If you look at their three surveys from the can. Census. And I think there was another one by Hilda. They all showed that inequality has pretty much not changed over three decades of productivity commission. More recently is found that claims to growing income inequality. Not true. The economic growth has lifted standards across all income groups. I mean these are the facts, but the slogan of income inequality is being used to justify dismantling capitalism, in the name of some sort of utopian social democratic project, we've been here before now at this stage Paul's point to alive victory. But Malcolm Turnbull mind tines he would won the election, if it weren't for his wing enemies in the media, and the potty room. Let's hear for major Neal's interview with tumble on the BBC two months ago at the time of the coup in August. We were level pegging on the public Paul's or the opposition and we were four points ahead on the polling in the marginal seats. But basically, you could argue that the concern was not that I would lose the election, but rather that I would win it. You telling me your own party didn't want you to win the next. I'm just saying if you analyze credit. Well, Andrew, you've only got to look at the facts because Malcolm Turnbull on the base on why he would have won the election Janet Albertson. Well, I see we've moved into the comedy section of

We have people on vacation and traveling and snowed in and presumably alive. But incommunicado, I don't know. They're just they're just all sorts of things going on. So it's only to us. So we're going to enlist the help of hope everybody listening right now live. So, you know, if you're in the chat room, you have questions throughout the show we will attempt to keep an eye out for that. And you know, hopefully, you have questioned otherwise is going to be pretty quick we have a lot of things is about. But they're only the two of us may only have so many opinions. So let's start by talking about yet. Another foldable phone the hallway made X. Yes. So this is kind of the other. I got pace the Lincoln the twitch chat that that's what he does. They were acting people can probably figure this stuff. People can look at the picture while we're talking this is sort of the other approach to full of and so the galaxy fold that was announced last week was as a screen on the front, and then you open it like a book and on the inside is the large panel. But while ways foldable phone is just one giant screen that wraps around the phone, and you just sort of unfolded, and you get the big screen so the little bit of different approach. And I think isn't that prone to creases is that what I saw I think this phone is going to look like garbage after about a week. So I mean, I've I've seen pictures of this thing from an angle, and it looks like an old DVD case or something it's all life. It's all like wavy and strange looking and the in the spine is super visible. I mean, I think it looks really cool and demos when it's like on. And like, you're looking straight at it. But I don't think it's actually gonna look great in real life after been using it for a while. And they do want a lot of money for it. It's like it's like twenty six hundred dollars even more expensive than Samsung phone. It's twenty three hundred euros, which is two point six hundred dollars and out of money. Just I mean, I I like the, you know, like if if it weren't for materials being the way they are. I would prefer this approach. But like, discreet is plastic there there is no there is no flexible glass available at this time. So you know, it's gonna scratch and look bad. And there's nothing that's going to stop that. And I don't know I really wanna buy a twenty six hundred dollar phone that's going to become a scratched mess. I mean, you're gonna like how you set this phone down. And like, the the plastics Reid is going to be touching things. So I don't know I feel like. The existence of the galaxy fold and the made X, and like what they feel like they need to charge for them and the trade offs that you need to make. If you want a foldable phone says to me that this technology is not even remotely ready for a consumer device. And these companies are just they're desperate to like get us all hooked on the next big thing to sell more phones. Because phone sales are leveling off people have a lot of phones. So that I hear what if we just made your phone fold, and it was kinda bad. Do you wanna buy this? Also, it costs a lot of money to make. So give us more dollars is kind of crazy approach because these are these are basically more than twice as expensive as a regular flagship phone right now, it's not unusual for a new piece of technology cost more, you know, the materials in the engineering of like a new concept will inevitably cost more like wind Samsung released the note edge alongside the Note Four. It was like twenty percent more expensive. And when apple did the iphone ten it was like thirty percent more than the iphone eight. But this is more than twice as much. It's just this technology is it's a tech demo still it's not something that anybody should realistically. Want to buy? Yes, it still looks cool and also kill but said how will will screen protectors work with it? Not at all. Yeah. Actually, really funny is if the screen protector was in two parts and didn't cover the full. Yeah. I yeah. I'm sure somebody's going to sell group protector kit like that for like the two halves of the of the foldable phone. One of many one. Yeah. It's just they're all dumb. And I don't want these two exist. Honestly, the only foldable phone that. I think actual it's kind of fun. Is that crazy like concept for the motive that we've seen which I believe is gonna think they're gonna actually make that thing. I think that looks RAD just because weird they're razor one razor loc- because like it doesn't have as many of these issues, and it just it looks like a razor, and that's just really fun. And I don't care that will be bad because it's just gonna look awesome. And ridiculous. Yeah. I. I feel like that would be really fun executed correctly. But I don't think Lenovo is going to do it. Well, yeah. I mean, the the only thing I think that makes that phone like borderline viable is that it's not like a giant thing, you it's not like, a, tablet droid has all kinds of issues, tablets. It's just going to be like a regular phone. It's like a regular with a little external screen, which you know, they're gonna do some gimmicky stuff with and whatever. But. Who knows? I mean that might still be like garbage because the screen might jus- break or something or have an ugly crease in I don't know. -ill probably have to be very thick. I imagine. Because the me the batteries in phones already only really make for one day. So they'd have to put a bigger battery in the two has yet like the design traps foldable phones right now are religious suspect because look at the look at the galaxy fold. It's like same won't say how thick it is. But people have estimated it's it's like fifteen to seventeen millimeters thick ridiculous and battery acid is not huge is only what it's like forty five hundred. I think it's not that much larger than a like a note nine, you know, it's not which would expect for basically taping two phones together. Powering a tablet size screen. Yeah. It's yeah. I just I feel like the technology is not it is not there. Yeah. I do I do still want one. But I don't have twenty five hundred dollars to blow on a phone. Unfortunately, I would never I would never buy one of these. If while he wants to send me one, I promised even a fair shake. Maybe this'll be like the like Z T phone with two screens where in a year it shows up on EBay for like four hundred dollars. Maybe we'll see once they won them. Okay. Let's talk about another. We are screen stuff. So Sony has made the experience in ten plus official. And these phones have got also the experienced one, which is that go phone resistance. No. It's just a bet phone okay to set. So really expensive one. I. Yeah. That's right. Oh, yeah. That's right yet. The one is the new flagship I'm thinking that the Nokia one plus or something I don't even been so many phones. Okay. So the spirit and bless our of bizarre. So they've got got twenty one by nine screen ratios, but the screening shifted down towards the bums the top as giant vessel and the bottom doesn't like terrible. It looks yet. It's guy. This is this is just the worst desire income seen in in a while. It does not look good. And I kind of got a little bit excited because on the first leak, I think two weeks ago or something like that. It sounded like Sony was going to simplify their naming scheme. But now, they've just made it more complicated. Because the the one is apparently the it's the pricey one. And then there's the ten and ten plus which are the normal flagships yet. Like, I'm I'm once again lost or super budget phones, or whatever Celje they have Snapdragon six thirty and six thirty six ten dentists respectively. I mean, they're they're they're tending to screens batteries or kinda smallish. It's twenty twenty eight seventy million hours for the tent which is about that. I think they're probably totally like fine boring. Whatever phones. That happened ugly screen thing going on. I don't get it. I think it looks really bad Bergen have review these phones before too long. They're supposed to be sending them soon. So we'll tell you exactly how ugly they are. And then say, then the experi one is what we had originally seen leaked as the z four. So it's just the experience out a symmetric eight fifty five at also has a twenty one by nine screen, but it is a four K O lead, which is just silly. Spent Sony's been writing this Fourcade is a treat for while. Only has thirty three hundred million hour battery for four K o led. This phone is gonna last twenty minutes on a charge. Well, isn't it? It's it must still be like the older Sony phones. We're only flips on the four K when you have like the photo app. Open. So semi's other. So it would do for K for a number of things like all of the Dolton apps would render for gay. But so this is with the rendering is a lot of the power component. But also just like powering that many pixels. It's still especially with an SE was probably probably worse even. But maybe this is be bad. But it is like it is a giant lead regardless six and a half inches. So I think that if you're gonna like could afford as screen on a phone you want USA four K. I don't know if they fix the problem where the you I was only rendering antennae p on the older phones because you couldn't use like you couldn't even play back YouTube a higher than ten eighty p on those phones because to recognize having or resolution, I don't know if they fixed that I don't recall day, I might have to go back and look at the last the last Sony phone review. I did that that thing had a four K LCD. Remember, what situation as that? But forklift look for K on a phone is pointless. You cannot you cannot discern that many pixels that from any any usable distance. It's just a not a good use of resources. Hopefully, it won't be as stupid heavy as the old Sony forgave phones. Where those those LCD panels were really heavy. Him looking in you know, because this is Sony. It's going to be absurdly priced in the US like always like the the experience pluses Snapdragon six thirty six phone at bet. They're gonna ask like six hundred dollars for that. I thought we needed a pricing. Did we we do? So. Yet. Three fifty for the ten in four thirty for the ten, plus those strange numbers, maybe though, this may be translated from euros or something. Yeah. It's a feel like it's going to be a lot more expensive in. We'll we'll see. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, four thirty the ten plus is not bad. If you don't know if that's accurate. Yeah. That's that's actually pretty good. Although we hold. So it's okay. See the Tenley has three gigs of ram ten pluses for gigs. I don't think people should be buying Android phones that have less than four gates of ram right now and less you're buying a super cheap budget phone. Okay. Does anybody safely chat room? Have. No question. Comment concern about about the show thus far. You know, it's only two of us, and you there's audience can collectively be third voice. If if you know if you like to be. We'll throw the hangouts Lincoln the in the twitch. Anyone can hop on. If they want. We used to do that. And some weird things happened.
"whitlam" Discussed on The Android Police Podcast
"A welcome to respond cast. I'm Ryan Whitlam. I'm goody tombs. I'm Corbin Davenport. And I'm Ryan Egger. And this is Samsung week Samsung did things this week and most other other companies didn't because they knew Samsung was going to do their thing. So I don't care about Samsung now is a good time to stop listening to the podcast also subscribed to podcast first and then stop listening. But if you do want to hear you hear about Samsung, we got we got lots of Samsung for you starting with the galaxy S ten as stem plus s ten e and s ten five G. There are four versions of this phone. There are and before we go on. Thank you tiny taco for subscribing. It's very kind of you. Okay. Back back back to Samsung. Yes. So so there only three versions of the phone. You'll be able to buy the preorder right now. That's the STAN ten plus NS ten e said the tenets unless pretty of explanatory. You know, you've you've seen lots of pictures of them. They've got the the whole punch thing going on the s ten is a slightly lower specked model of the stand. So it's just gotta ten eighty p display only it's two cameras on the bags of three only to then. And as templates. Yeah. Knows has only two cameras, but so in it's also, you know, it's a little bit smaller. I think it's what's like five point eight inches of like that. And then the S tens like six one and the S ten blesses six four five something like that. So. Yeah. So that the S ten plus it has it has to front facing cameras, which I think is kind of silly. Because one of them is just like it's like a like a depth sensor, but it's not they're not using it for like, I don't think anything important. I think it's just like for is just repair lacks the second portrait portrait, I think and it's like a really big cut out. I think it looks kind of silly. I'm also kind of not sure like why Samsung still has like a chin on the bottom of the phone. I think it makes these phones look kind of not as nice is this metrical with the top. I feel like the choose not. It's a little it's noticeably. It's noticeably larger on the bottom locally it depends on the phone. Yeah. It's worse on the s the pluses closer, but they're all like slightly off. And I just really I is visually upsetting for me. Speaking of visually upsetting a the front cameras are not good as as everyone's been saying for the past two months. They're they're they're pretty unsightly in that is probably the largest status bar. I've ever seen on any phone in my life as quite intense. It's it's a thing. I. I don't know if I don't know if this whole bunch thing is going to be any more desirable than a notch. It seems to take up more. You I space it totally like my main objection to two giant notches? Like, why don't you just like Mitch us like nudge, the cameras up a little bit just put him up a little bit higher and just like let the screen go down below it. It's not I don't I don't know. I think Samsung is just trying to be different for the sake of being different because they don't wanna like directly do the, you know, the same thing at Apple's doing. Let's see oh so ultra sonic fingerprint sensor. Also thing from what I've heard David says it it's real bad. I have not I have not personally used it yet. But David thinks that all in display fingerprint sensors are bad. So they are pretty bad. I mean, the the sixty is fine. I I have no problem. Another report having tons of issues with one on the sixty eight and I used a couple sixties, and like all of them have had totally fine fingerprint sensors for my my succeed scanner is is noticeably slower than the rear sensor on my five t let's major and Ospel yet. Because it's like a downgrade almost like why even as well. So I mean. Well, so I mean, it's like a it's it's just like an ergonomic design thing a lot of people prefer the sensors on the front, but that kinda screws up the design if you have a phone with the with like taller screen like when while we released the p twenty days to let front facing censor. But it's on a giant shin at the bottom, and it's not at a comfortable spot despite where one plus has the fingerprint sensor under its displays actually a really natural place to set your your thought young we pick up the phone. I think it's probably even more natural than the location on the back of a lot of phones. A lot of homes put it put that too high or too low. Although one interesting thing or one thing with printing out is that when you pick up the sixteen and you rest your finger there. You also get the little indicator of where to put your finger, and you don't get that on the s. That is insane to me. It's super I they're going to have to add that in update because it is it is going to annoy the crap out of people. I mean, I don't know. Hopefully, hopefully, this the sensor is not as bad as David. Thanks. I think there's something wrong with his fingers. But and it's it's it's it's kind of made worse because didn't David say that these phones don't have the IRS scanning not, you know, they dropped that. But that was like now, I was never good the field of you or the so narrow then you had glasses. I think they defeated anyway. Yeah. It didn't work well classes at all. So so you just get a lock screen password and a very not great fingerprint sensor, this what this phone has. Yeah. And so here's the thing. It's real expensive. The ten is seven fifty which isn't bad as for what you get. But that's the evidence. Ten is nine hundred the s ten plus thousand starting prices. You can get versions with like more storage. It's all very it's very very up there. I don't know about paying nine hundred dollars. The STAN I think that's I think that's too much. And I think I saw someone point out on Twitter the s ten e is the same starting price as the S nine was at launch. I thought they were more expensive than that. But I might be missing like just shy of eight hundred might have been like. Like out thing. I don't know. I'll check it. But yeah. But I mean, it's they're more expensive. I know that I mean, the the s nine plus wasn't the thousand dollars because when the note nine came out, and it was literally thousand dollars over is like, well, this is this is the thing now. But yeah. And so those aren't even going to be like the most expensive versions like you can get there's going to be the ceramic version of the ten plus that has a terabyte of storage, and whatever like twelve gigs of ram a shes crashed okays back, and that's going to be whatever like thirteen hundred dollars, which is silly and ice though. Maybe. And then there's going to be yes. Ten five G, which is I'm sure going to be even more expensive that so that phone like Samsung, Asia's going all out and doing crazy stuff. It's gonna it's gonna have a six point seven inch display. Six cameras a forty five hundred million hour battery in it's brilliant need the big battery because it's going to have to modems it's gonna have the, you know, the x fifty five G motive, and it's going to be exclusive to Verizon, and I it will come to other carriers later they said like later in the summer. So I bet Brian is gonna get it like June is they set the first half of the orbit is going to be like very close to the end of the first half. And then like late summer. I guess we'll get the other carrier versions, and that's the way it's going to be for this first gen of of five g phones are going to be carrier specific, even if they were unlocked. There's not going to work on other areas. Five G networks because that is the nature of the extra de modem and the somewhat fragmented state of the early five G networks, so. I'm sure and the money dollars, and it's not gonna work many places, and you probably should not buy it. Even if you have the option. And Ron Manteo mentioned in the twitch chat that the starting price for the smallest nine with seven twenty and the S nine plus was eight forty. Yep. This price jobs, quite the price hike. This is on the plus side. It's only gonna take a few weeks. Maybe a couple of months, and those prices are going to be like taking a nosedive. I mean after this like after the after the preorder return window closes the evidently be Abobo on most carriers that'll be thing and to be fair. That's probably only going to be for the really standard models. I it anything. That's got any sort of real perk to the five G, the ceramics any of those those prices are gonna stay like, the prices, you're still doing pretty I most of the time for at least a couple of months unless Samsung sees like really poor sales than they might start knocking more off of the price. I don't know for sure how might have already anticipated not having sales. And they've as result just not overproduced because I think that in their last set of projections. They were looking forward to a weaker year. Yeah. I mean, they might be thinking like the people who buy the phones there. You know, the the the number of people who aren't going to buy it if it's eight hundred versus seven twenty. Eighty nine hundred seven twenty is you know, small enough that if we just charge that much more for the phone than we won't lose that much money. They probably I mean, they're making more per every unit sold. I'm sure so but still like it just kind of a dumb trend. I would really like to see phones not cost thousand dollars. Yeah. And this time around they are doing some somewhat. Okay offers when you buy like, a no when you buy I don't know if it's for all the S tunes, but freely some of them, you do get the galaxy buds for free, which is like, okay. I guess. But it's still much rather than not cost thousand dollars. So it'd be preferable. Yeah. That'd be great. Oh, the Hessel. Yeah. They have they have the wireless power thing, which I think is a fun gimmick. It's gonna look really good in ads, but it's going to be terrible in real life. That is to be so efficient. It's just gonna wreck your phone matter. You're not actually gonna wanna use this. We'll depends on what easier for if it's for headphones or something like that. That's not real to charge. Yeah. But it's better than having no way to turn. But. You think your phone you put it face down? You put your air buds on. And then you stare at it. You wait for your just. Aren't you? You think of all the music you could be listening.
The “Identity Politics” Debate Is Splintering the Left
"Liberals splintering, how often have you heard about the defections and departures from the left end of the liberal party spectrum while in fact, the major defections attacking place on the right side of the coalition parties and the splintering, well, that's Lockley to have a legislative impact. Remember in twenty sixteen nearly a million conservatives could not stomach, Malcolm Turnbull. So they voted for alternative parties and deed, many lifelong liberals even preference lineup and that nearly cost the coalition office after being in power for only one term and one of the major bell grounds in the upcoming. Newsouth whilst election will be that for the house after mosh Twenty-three mono- on the rot. They luckily to hold the balance of power, so as the liberal national coalition, increasingly. Splinters? What's the objective of one nation, the Liberal Democrats, and the Australian conservatives Mark life is one nation candidate for the New South Wales up house? He's also a former federal labor later. Great to have you back on between the law and mock, thanks very much. Tom Corey Benatti is leader of the Australian conservatives and Senator he's a former liberal holiday Corey very good and David limbic is the newly elected liberal Democratic Party member in the Victorian legislative council. Welcome to the program, David hot, Tom NASA. Now, let's start with how each of you got to where you are now, politically and philosophically Mark your former vigil, I believe throughout the two thousand four election campaign. You were the darling of the metropolitan sophisticates a few years ago you join the L D P. Now, you're a one nation candidate for the New South Wales up a house. How do you can't your audio odyssey? Well, there are many issues, Tom, but I think generally. I would think that I've stayed pretty well stabling terms of minority logical position. Join the live party forty years ago, because I had a great believe in meritocracy that if we provide good social and economic opportunities for people and pick jobs promotions roles in society based on merit. We could have the good society that would be a genuine social democratic objective. And I still believe in that tonight, forty years lighter meritocracy, whereas unfortunately, live or another lift of Santa parties have moved to a system of identity politics, which instead of judging H individual on their merit. They work ethic that community contribution there night quality as an individual. They judging them on rice, gender and sexuality and these categories. I believe our betrayal of the ideals that people like Whitlam and hawks it for the live party, by diner, tree, social, democracy and social Justice. It's really. My opposition to identity politics that has seen me arrive in one nation, but it's more that live as moved to the left. They've very much allied green party and as long as they johnke meritocracy and embrace identity politics. They weren't have more support. Not I think they'll achieve their objects. What Ronald Reagan said when he left the Democrats joined the Republicans, he said, I didn't leave my party my party, lift me, well to some extent, but I think most people would acknowledge over the past dick item in particular politics. China fundamentally there's been a collapse in the quality of leadership since the defeat of the Howard government twelve years ago, the embrace of identity issues led to a transformation on I this is an example. But who would have thought in the news, we have this week that significant number of employees would be leaving the British live party on the grounds of racism and anti semitism story. And it just shows you the. Impact of identity politics is in fact, a new form of racism practiced by the lift and for me, that's the part of the beliefs. I had decades ago and the beliefs I still today

"The best in the world Whitlam about little ways off. That was crazy last night off know what he was wearing feeling you. I'll give you this is my mindset when you're talking about superstars. It's like when I first met fluid he had like ninety seven chains. And then I was like if the champ of the world came where ninety seven chains who can if low weighing k where nobody can. And I don't know Wayne qualifies the wisdom. I was at my cigars by last night. And you know, it was some others. There were there, and we were watching and everybody was just in all what was going on. I wanna know. What point do you get to as a mega superstar where you just don't care? I like you don't do it. But it just that's that's a lot of close to put on bro. On time. He took them right off to the first song. He was all. But when he looked in the mirror. What did he did? He even look. Oh, that's fly. That is God. It's old is like nine dollars all combined in one project. Maybe they just nailed it. I love that mess called the kitchen sink, everything, but the kitchen sink, you get to a certain age life where you don't give a damn you get to a certain status to where you just that's my fellow libra to bro. You know, I just couldn't do it. I Don L was no man at the pie one last thing from the game last night. Nick same has some unusual comments. Listen as always I appreciate on. No. You all think I don't like the press. But I really do love you for what you do to. Here a lot of positive self gratification. There are a lot of our players by recognizing the things that they do. Well, and we certainly appreciate all the interest. You create for our sport. In college football is a great game. And something that's great for these young people to be able to learn a lot of lessons in life. So we appreciate so much for that. Thank you. Photo was scheduled to save me here with one guy tween manipulating the media. Always he thinks if he's mice no-one will write the Sabin dominance era over articles, y'all buying a new sweet talking saving. I do. If they had one he wouldn't have said it right now. I do believe that. I do think he means it though, I think he was humbled in that game. And sometimes you have a humble spirit. Yeah. You just say would you say what you really think? And so yeah. And you also learn more losses. So this is part of the learning process for Nick Sabin who had a big media scandal this year, most to clean it up. You know, he he even apologized for that before coming out with the old saving way when he was talking to the media. Why not at the end of the year just say, you know, what let's start fresh start new. I'm like, it's so hard though, to to believe as genuine coming from a guy like Nick Sabin, who's always fought it, especially in press conferences afterwards. Even when he's one he's pushed back on the media. Now, you do it after a tough. I mean, a bad loss. You've got question on a lot of your play calling. Okay. That comes back to now does now is it reverse to as far as a message. You sent to your players. Like, listen, no matter what you're always professional. I mean at the end of the day. That's what we do. So it could be like this. But I just know a lot of people just not go. But when he lost it to Shawn Watson, he's still was gangsta. And that's what I'm saying. So you can lose stupi gangster. But forty four to sixteen lose. It was a curve stop. He got he got the limo for big..
Where's Khalil Mack?! The Raiders aren't saying
"I can tell you that right now. Nobody is in that locker room worried about any tension. Nobody is talking about any of the things that happened the off season. It's just doesn't. It doesn't exist. They're the only thing anybody's worried about is practice and is the next day practice. There were times being that building where there are a lot of things that were being said about the team. I remember when we let lower Malloy go and they said it's over in the locker room when they lost the team and all, but. But it was being said, but nobody talked about it and nobody cared about it, and everybody just put their head down and work towards the next day because that's just how it is. You know, I think human emotions do factor into this, like it's a game, Dave operated a certain way for a long time. But Tom Brady has the franchise player certainly would like to feel like the owner and the head coach back them up regardless of whether he's right or wrong. You also assurances Defillo like all the sacrifice, all the things that I've done to help us win and be a perennial contender that those things would be supported and reflected in the way we go about our business. So if he didn't feel like he was getting that support, I certainly could see where he would kind of feel like I'm out here on an island. It could change him come to carrying on the message that has always been kind of dispensed, Eric, I wanna push back against something you said in terms of the reporting on this book. And again, I'm not sure of anything, but the book basically says that Brady immediately called. Smith in the NFL PA and got on the phone with them. And so where they might be getting the information from is the NFL PA and sources there that are aware of how Brady reacted when Bob Kraft stepped down. And I agree with bookie to the extent that Tom Brady wants to fill a level of support I and again, when you factor in all the things we've been talking about all offseason how much less money he's taken throughout his career. He probably feels more entitled embolden than some as it relates to deflate gate though. I thought it was time to raise the white flag for Brady to put it away. The NFL Roger Goodell was backed into a corner. He had to stand tough against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots because of all the other things, the players thought they had gotten away with previously. When you look at this situation? Tom Brady was there and Drew Bledsoe was traded to buffalo, Tom Brady was there when Seymour was traded, Tom Brady has seen all the things. That take place there and there's a ruthless efficiency in that organization and everybody who's part of it knows that they're part of it. So if you don't feel necessarily as a pre shaded as you hope to be, you're probably in the wrong spot. That's your mindset. We're John gruden's returned to coaching. It's not after the slickest start with Khalil Mack holding out of camp and reportedly ducking the new raiders coach. Now Gruden says the defense wasn't any good. Even when MAC was there last year and reports of service that Khalil an team, they haven't had contract toxins. February Whitlam is Jon Gruden mishandling Khalil Mack. I don't know because I really want to hear what Eric in bookie Brooks have to say because of the way he's handling Khalil. Mack says to me that, hey, Kalou, you've been a great player, but our defense hasn't been great with you here. So maybe you're not as valuable as you think you are. I find it fascinating and it makes me wonder, but maybe the splash plays or there for Khalil Mack, but maybe he's unsound and other areas that I'm not aware of it does feel clumsy doesn't. It is real clumsy, but being with Jon Gruden back in ninety eight..
