New York Times Runs Crap Piece, Claiming Tension Between DeSantis and Trump
"My friend reads The New York Times call my attention to this front page peach about tension between Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis It's by time stalwart's Maggie haberman and Jonathan Martin who don't know crap Who probably had a lot of fun writing it They report that Trump had become unhappy with desantis because the Florida governor won't say he'd step aside if as seems likely Trump decides to run for president in 2024 How many here believe that if Trump runs in 24 Desantis would challenge him Zero According to the times Trump believes he says what justification I think that he put desantis on the map From this Trump concludes without justification I think I'm just reading what he wrote That desantis should not stand in the way of the former president's future political ambitions Trump hasn't yet blasted desantis by name but he ripped gutless politicians who dives the question of whether they've been vaccinated against COVID fearing blowback from vaccine skeptics desantis hasn't said whether he's received anti COVID shots The answer is yes Trump said an interview last month but they don't want to say it because they're gutless and so forth He says I agree with Trump Governors who have been vaccinated should say so to reassure the public the vaccine is safe governors are rejected Out of safety or other concerns should share those concerns with their
Legal Insurrection: Democrats' Jan. 6 Clown Show Was Worse Than Expected
"One of our favorite sites here is legal insurrection And they have a wonderful story there that you ought to look at is put up there on Saturday The Democrats January 6th clown show was worse than expected Their hysterical pearl clutching live filled response to the events of January 6th What Democrats are clearly hoping will be their transformative rights dog moment is unseemly phony to its corp purely and solely political We know this because there was no outrage over the leftist rioters who attempted to transition to power during president Trump's inauguration Not only did anti Trump leftist riot attack and enter police set cars and buildings on fire But they were later rewarded for this attempt to subvert democracy to the tune of $1.6 million in taxpayer money Do you know how many congressional Democrats or Republicans for that matter willed about our democracy on the brink Do you know how many of these inauguration rioters were hunted down by the FBI arrested beaten and mistreated and how this political prisoners for over a year Do you know how many of them are harboring blueprints of the capitol building or wait That was an unconstructed still box LEGO set Not a model used for terrorist purposes or whatever random lunacy the FBI parent at that time If you said zero you're right on all

Nurse Sees More Children Die From the Vaccine Than COVID
"Meanwhile, a nurse can cut one O 5 says she talks about how they're seeing more kids die of the vaccine than of COVID her words cut one O 5. My name is collet Martin. I'm an RN. I have 17 years, 12 years oncology, and the past 5 years I've been afloat resource nurse to all the different floors in the hospital. I'm extremely concerned with the IDA mandating this vaccine for our children. The reactions we were seeing in the hospital with adults are terrifying and they're being ignored. Just some examples of post vaccine reactions or blood clots. Heart attack strokes encephalopathy, heart arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation. I personally had a patient die three months after his vaccines at pericarditis, which we know is an own side effect. Diagnose 30 days after a shot, no mention to VAERS. Majority of our nurses nurse managers and some doctors do not even know what theirs is. I've spoken to our chief medicine, managers, other nurses, and why we're not reporting to VAERS, and the most common responses, what is VAERS? We have chemotherapies that we know have side effects causing blood cancers such as leukemia and ten plus years after giving the drug. We know this because we have real long-term trials on these drugs. We are not just seeing severe acute reactions with this vaccine, but we have zero idea what any long-term reactions are. Cancer is autoimmune infertility. We just don't know. Our children are not even at risk for this. As of now, we have more children that die from the COVID vaccine than of COVID itself. Most people don't even know what VAERS is, she

The World of the Left Is the World of the Lie
"The 2020 riots, in most cases, nothing done by the authorities to stop them. Because their Democrats, and they live in fear like every leftist, the further left you go, the more people fear they fear the mob, they wouldn't stand up to the mob. So what they do is they exaggerate. You realize there was half a year, I would say. Of mob rule in many cities in this country. Democrats did nothing except announce in many cases that there are too many police. Then there isn't this unarmed attack on the capitol. And that's all we hear about, right? It's all we hear about. An insurrection. It's the first unarmed insurrection in modern history. How many people brought aboard a weapon other than a fire extinguisher theoretically? How many people brought a weapon and even that? I'm sorry. It was there exactly. How many people wrote a weapon? Is it zero? Zero. Firearm. Yeah, but I mean by fire. What do they have? Medieval swords. Okay. A baseball bat. As we know insurrections are very effective with somebody carrying a baseball bat. The world of the lie because it's the world of the left.
Senator Ted Cruz Shares His Views on the Debt Ceiling
"The debt ceiling is the limitation on the total amount of the country can borrow. And it is my view is not that we should never raise the debt ceiling. You sometimes get politicians who say that, but frankly, they're not they're not being serious or credible when they say that because you've got it varies at time to time, but it's roughly 40 cents of every dollar we spend is borrowed. So unless you're prepared to slash federal spending, 40% overnight, you're going to continue to borrow some. And by the way, there is nobody zero members of the Congress who advocate slashing 40% of spending overnight. So if that is the case, then you do have to continue to borrow. My view has always been. We should not raise the debt ceiling. Without using it as leverage to pass real meaningful structural reform that limits spending and addresses the debt that fixes the underlying problem. It doesn't have to be a magic wand. You don't have to solve all of it, you know, we don't live in we don't have Harry Houdini, who can just magically make things go away, but we should use the tools we have to address the real problem. I think that's the responsible way to do it. That's the honest way to do it. In this instance, for several months the position of every Republican in the Senate was, we're not going to help with the debt ceiling. Because the Democrats can do it on their own. They have majorities in both houses. They can raise the debt sailing under budget reconciliation. So if they're going to bankrupt the country, they ought to take responsibility for it and vote for it on their own. Mitch McConnell was very vocal and clear in making that argument repeatedly and urging even some of the wobbly or members of our conference to hold that
Kim Potter Trial: Minneapolis Jury Finds Ex-Police Officer Guilty in Death of Daunte Wright
"This trial against this former police officer, Kim Potter. Who shot and killed a suspect, in Minnesota, he was resisting a dress arrest, drove away in his car, she said and the supervisor at the scene said that they feared that the suspect would drive away with the police officer. And the supervising officer, on the scene, said that she would have been justified in using deadly force, let alone the taser. The only reason I believe it got this much coverage is because the suspect is black. Officer's white. Had been the other way around nobody would have given a dam, had it been a white officer, white suspect, nobody would have given a damn. And zero evidence to support any inkling that whatever Kim Potter did had to do with Dante Wright's race. Yet many newspapers referred to the officer as white, suspect is black. And when the officer was found guilty of two charges, there was cheers outside the courtroom, as if it was some sort of political rally. Clearly a lot of people felt that the reason this happened is because Dante Wright is black, and the cop is white.

Biden's Child Tax Credit Could Create a Massive Expansion of the Welfare State
"What the heritage foundation writes about what Biden wants to do with the child, tax credit. In reality, he's proposing a massive expansion of the welfare state. Except he's calling it a child allowance. In the policy relies upon the child credit tech credit. Now think about a tax credit. That means you pay taxes, right? Well, he's expanding it for people that don't pay taxes. They don't have jobs. Rather than providing tax relief, the plan would give cash grants to families who do not work or work comparatively comparatively little. The Clinton era welfare reform understood that paying able bodied people not to work with good for neither society, nor recipients. Such payments tend to push individuals out of the labor force and toward the margin of society, impeding upward mobility for both adults and children. In reality the plan would offer zero long-term tax relief to working families with children. Even in the short term, some 75% of the aid would go to cash grants to families who owe no income tax. Contrary to the Biden administration rhetoric the primary focus would not be taxed relief, but the elimination of all work requirements and work incentives from the current child credit program. Under the current system, a family must earn at least $2500 during the year to be eligible for the cash grants. The Biden shallow allowance policy seeks to rip out these work requirements and incentive credit explicitly overturning the principles of welfare reform. Under the Biden plan, the federal government would for the first time in a quarter century provide unconditional cash grants to families who choose not to work during the year.

Trailblazers team who outside looking in you know so you look at a situation where as I gotta get it into some type of game shape or had some sort of training camp for kind of reignite where they were I think that's that's that's a point of emphasis there then. In addition to that you discuss menus one. It's likely that they'll play without fans for for a while is people are figuring out you chore or some.

You think this will lead to a more Conservative offseason or you think it'll just go on as usual if they do get the season on. I mean it depends on when they start so you look at a situation where the draft draft combine. Some of those things have been at. They shuffled around like more drafts. And it'd be late June. Are you GonNa be Playing Basketball Lobby? Long bread are you. Are you going to event? Okay said it's even in August or September. You start trying to can't right after the other way so December because then you look at patient like you repeat what you did after the second lockout where you start the season on Christmas Day and then we will want to do what you need to do. And then once that's the low back to you know the way things where but does rarely you're talking about a two year process of of normalcy fall over right also. I just think you know to answer your question. It's an incomplete on far right now. Does guys in the draft or loads and draft. Who Haven't had on the Combine Mitch Albom every year. Who has who are GONNA be doing work out food zone? You know out of the draft side. You have a draft. Work is have not played in the NCAA tournament. And you're you're basing it off of youtube you're facing off Intel. I'm sure you know to to to happen like the the. Nfl had an advantage of actually having combines and actually having some sort of interviews and things and that sort of the NBA is going this without that advantage So you're dealing or you're you're depending on the on Intel. You're looking at video throughout the course of the season. And you know I think it's just going to be very different process and I think we're GONNA look back on like So I think when you look at the season what what's happening at large like I don't think that's I think thousand is GONNA play like I. Once they played settled in it will be almost but if they play it. I think they're gonNA have to sift since well. Yeah I was I was thinking about. What the draft coming up like you said the. Nfl had the luxury of having combine stuff with the NBA. Not having that in a year. That's already there's no consensus number one player. This is going to add to the confusion. Usually you have one one or two players who has some intrigue around him in that kind of helps their case. The team gets a little answering tries to take him in this one. Everybody is a mystery because there's no tournament tape on them. You have You know you didn't. You didn't get the run any prior work or anything like that so there. That's that's the one I think is bigger me. I I the off season I think it kind of I'm with you. And we have to see when they start plan but if they do start playing. I think it'll go on Relatively regularly it's the draft that I think is is the Los Curious. Because there's been no extra contact outside of requisite wrapping creating obviously. Could you imagine if free agency last summer was this summer for all of the the big names that were no coming out all the money that was being? Explains that this off season free agency is is different The biggest name that is a free agent is anthony. Davis and many people believe that as a one conclusion that he's doing the Los Angeles Lakers Janas off Combo's another name well but known and some people think he'll stay with Milwaukee's we'll see but you know another name that people should be paid attention to front and we are in talks. That will the Knicks had interest and many people have said that no that the yacht. The Knicks have interesting Chris. Paul because of the Leon rose connection from way back But you know be you think there's some this like if the Jaffa Joan and the season is going on in like July August or somewhere in the summer like you're gonNA have in the free agency period October. I all the things that you have to consider so if if the right off of the world. We're talking a lot of scenarios with those who are listening. You know we're talking. Different scenarios is nothing concrete. Things can change right.

"And also these neom just integrated in different places like the way we just described Disney HBO are actually quite a. But then you think about all the other businesses. That Disney of built like all the way down to the stores all the way down to the theme parks, and the integration that they get their that will also in turn limit their ability to like let the brand slip to because then you risk the other businesses that have already built at all this is a little bit fuzzy like what their focus as a company with their differentiation is. But it's very real like this stuff, actually matters. Right. Could apple theoretically, be writ services company will? Yes. But you know, it's a lot more complicated than that could Amazon make great hardware well in the grand realm of possibilities. Anything is possible. So yes, but it's all crap. Why because that's not what the company is organized around and focused on culture and all those sorts of things and particularly in this case of being an era gator requires such a lack of friction in every part of that virtuous cycle depends on the complete lack of friction and four company like Disney, not only would they have to sort of complete rejig your their approach and thinking to even pursue opportunities. They're saddled with a huge amount of friction because they still have a massive business with traditional cable. With movie theaters all those sorts of things. And if you think about that it would be kind of foolhardy to chase net. Flicks down this road. You know, like you pursue a strategy that rests on what makes you unique. And what makes Disney is? It's not that the internet produces friction, right? The reducing friction is a general fact in the air in the world and net flicks built their entire company around that so of our compete with net flicks. That's actually the last place. I would want to go because they're just far better suited to pursue. It any way by virtue of the fact that grew up on the internet. Yeah. One thing that's true in the world. Just like the internet, reduce friction is good content. Still does well and day is still good at creating content. So yeah, that makes sense, right? There can be multiple winners. Like, I know that I've written that air eaters tend to be like winner, take all our winter take most, and you know, the constraint on that is always sort of supply and now with the rise of pay walls, even in the world of Google and Facebook, they don't have all the contents. Right. They don't have strategically contents. And now, she's actually content is drop in the ocean. But. There's still room. If you think about your business in a different perspective, all those pieces that make areas possible can be Reverend to your own good, right? Social media is great marketing protector, and the fact that payments or the web is super great. The lack of friction is very very useful. I'm just leveraging it in a different way in a way that I'm not gonna be Facebook rich by any means. I'm just make a nice living. But that's okay. And in the context of a company like Disney making a nice living is still like hundreds of millions of dollars or billions or Harvard, which is going to be. I just pulled number. I've got up to think through with it actually is. But that's fine. You don't have to be saddled with the old world forever. And that's fine.

"Subscribe to and pay for the Wall Street Journal, the financial times protect res your same sort of thing. And they're building that direct to consumer connection as a way to go around the aggregated and to get a greater share of return for what they create. But that does not make them in the New York Times is not an arrogant or just because they have. Extra to users. Like, that's only one small piece of what makes an aviary you need this fly will affect and it's the same thing here. Disney is the New York Times there. The Wall Street Journal. Netflix is Facebook Google so interesting, and I mean when you described the New York Times versus Facebook and Google it makes sense. I guess my question becomes in the same way that once you have a direct to consumer relationship, which Disney's planning on building, and you have content that's top notch that causes people to want to subscribe, urinating similar position to net. Flicks. What prevents Disney for making the decision to try to come an aggregated. Just like Netflix is. It's super interesting. I think it's one of those things like, theoretically, nothing, and you get all say, theoretically, the New York Times could put content from anyone on their front page and links to it. But they don't because that's just not the sort of company. Army? You can see it very clearly in the context of Disney where they have like brand safety stuff. And like the Disney services probably not gonna have like adult sort of things they want to put that on Hulu why because the power of. Sort of culture and approaching problems. We've always approached them is not only very powerful. It's necessary. What goes into being a great content creator? What goes into the creation of IP what goes into building an entire machine around. Leveraging that IP like Disney has you start with sort of a different perspective and a different set of priorities and approaches that just leads you in a different direction, and that's fine. Like, I've always been pretty optimistic about Disney generally for many years like I was on the few people when their stock way slid because at ESPN numbers, if you're supposed to I think they're going to be okay. And my reason for them being okay is because good contents. Still matters. Good content is still meaningful you can still build real businesses. If you have differentiation there, it is going to be far more valuable because videos farmer valuable than the New York Times or Wall Street Journal, whatever might be, but I think it's just not built into the business to have the scale ability function on both sides. And even though they will have maybe the pieces to do it. I think they're going to go in a different direction. And I think that's fine. You don't need to be an airy Disney. Watts to great content. And I think they're building a good model, Gregory content. Direct to consumer market is a great way to incentivize the creation of compelling content. Because wiggly your income depends on it. And that's fine. It's a fine thing to do and Dorada fight Netflix on their turf. Anyway, that's a pretty tall order to say. The least. No, I agree. I couldn't conceptually get the reason why they couldn't take the same lake. And when you explain like conceivably, they absolutely could. But the basis of the company is this brand and the brand probably constraints them in terms of trying to be all things to all people in a way that net flicks is much less constrained. And getting a sense of like, the supply side, I and focusing on the quality of supply as opposed to the demand side, I which also makes more sense now, you've explained it..

"They do deals with the old school channels the deal to get friends, you know, for another year, and that's fine. They're model can handle that. They can also buy shows outright. Like were they everything they fund the whole thing? They have all the content like stranger things, and they'll make back some profit there because they own every single piece of it. And so they'd make deals with producers like the shonda rhimes deal. And they don't even know what shows they're going to get out of it yet. But that's one that makes sense they could plug into this model they can do deals. They did a deal with the BBC where the show that they created is shown on the BBC in the UK, but the rest of the world has shown a net flicks. And there's this degree of flexibility and ability to ingest content of all types, they can take great a Hollywood movies alway down to like they have shows like BuzzFeed or vox on the channel and this gale, ability and module heirachy is very much. Not just on the consumption side for Netflix puts on the production side as well. And it's very unique. If you think about it relative to their competitors. I mean, Disney is going to create a service and that Disney service is. I think going to be successful because Disney has great content, and they have great content because in that old value chain. Disney achieved integration between we own the channels, and we create super compelling content that end users watt, so we can go. She had great deals with the cable fighters. Right. And so they have integration at a different point village in the net flicks. But it's a more constraining piece of integration because it's hard to see Disney scaling their content ingestion, for example to the level that Netflix does and they're constrained in a way with their model that will make their model. I think successful, but it's not going to be as large or scalable as the Netflix model. I mean, it's interesting you say that because I think about if we view the channels as a function of the pipes and the pipes going from fix purpose, which was to view video and there earned the number of channels. You could display at one time to general purpose, which is you can just pump anything down. It would almost seem like that your point of view. On Disney's integration around creation of content and channels is actually less helpful. Yes. In the sense. It still makes money today because there are still people on the cable bundle today. That is still getting the channels the thing that you discussed that's most valuable for them as they move into this brave new weld of pipes that carry anything. So first of all, I'm not sure that that integration is helpful between content and channels in this new world because channels don't really exist in these new world, but even still they're being held back by the success, and that dependence of the funds or the revenue that comes from them still participating in this previous wealth, fully allowing them to drop that paradigm and move into the next one. That's the thing. Like, Disney actually is into Netflix competitor at all people are going to categories and that because they're both streaming. But the reality is that Disney really is a digital channel. Like what we mistakenly categorized net flicks. And what Disney is building is a direct to consumer way. That they can monetize their content sort of more efficiently like not sharing it with Comcast of the world. But what Disney is not building? They're not building an aggregate or they are leveraging supply to get demand. They're not leveraging demand to sort of build this flywheel of ever more supply. It's a very different model like Disney is these sort of newer times of media where the aggregate or is Google and Facebook where they have all the attention and people get content coming other platform and supply, and by the way, a lot of that content is crap. It's like a lot of shows in efforts are crap. Right. But the scale advantage and just the amount of craft and still lots of good stuff is just a huge thing in the case of the New York Times. What do they have to do?.

"What is the sort of a theory of company and there's an aspect where? Yes, you have a very focused sort of organization that does one thing and everyone in the company is pulling towards that singular goal. But I think the truly influential companies the ones that reshaped value chains. It comes from integration. It comes from taking too disparate pieces. Putting it under one roof and changing the strategic calculus for those different pieces such that they're pulling in a common direction in a way that is very sort of hard to compete. With and also wearing on. What makes that possible is the paradigm change, right? Yes. Netflix has that team in Los Gatos that is mostly focused on this sort of technology, but the number of people that networks has employed working on distributing content is relative to a variety or a Comcast if infant testimony, right like they have people do support calls in weighing stuff in the ground like their workforces to be massive massively larger, and so this is sort of teasing this technological breakthrough. It took that piece made it dramatically cheaper made people doing it dramatically more efficient, and that made it logistically possible to marry that to sort of the production side in a way that wouldn't have been logistically possible previously. And yes, Comcast bought sort of nbcuniversal universal. But why is they're very widow sort of return to that. Where do you find synergy between such to massively totally different totally unfocused or of corporations to achieve that integration to achieve those two parts under one roof, you'd need to have some sort of like technological advantage. That makes even. Viable and makes it possible to be sort of strategically nimble. It's like that old Jim style quote about like, there's only bundling and unbundling and seeing how it used to be that pipe carried the content, and that was the only way to get the content in all the Comcast a lot of their investment was predicated on not just laying the cable, but being able to sell the cable channels and then seeing that change and then net flicks, integrating in a very different place that now is appropriate. Given the fact that the pipes can carry anything. So that's another really interesting point. And I think it ties into the one you mentioned with cable, right? The cable can be anything. What is a sort of perfect point of integration evalu- chain? Look like, I would say just theoretically, you'll big picture if you look great. You would have a very well defined two pieces that work together. Augment each other very, well, you would own that new would own that in a way that allows maximum scale on the edges because if you integrate one part of the legion what happens to the other parts of gene module rises. Exactly, right. And you want maximum modulating on those parts. So apple for example. They have that tight integration with hardware and software, and they can charge your profit for it. But they get a huge amount of module area. When it comes to what the phone can do through the app store. Right. And that's automated by the browser and being able to access anything. And on the other side apple has access to all the suppliers in the world who are competing for their business. And so they have huge amount of modulation on that size. That's why the business model is so great. They are this type of integration in one part of the value chain and sort of maximum module rarity on the couple military parts of the value chain. I would argue that Netflix has that same sort of thing. So on the one side is the cable by Bush can be anything, and we'd already talked about the implication of that. From nephews perspective is they can reach everyone. They're not limited by geography. They're not limited by time. They can reach anyone at anytime over the world making their market super huge, and they can bring that to bear on the deals. They do but it applies on the backside as well. Like Netflix isn't constrained in any way by the sort of shows that. They buy. Yes. For some second run shows..

"Netflix took those two pieces that for many years, we're sort of like just a push and pull between like Comcast and dizzy or how much of the of the cable bundle. Are we going to get in these negotiations? But they were really sort of two peas in a pod. Like they were together. It was just kind of starting out you who had the bigger p. But it is Netflix is do the whole thing in they could uniquely do that because of the internet because distribution was free because they can leverage all those pipes that Comcast's nicely put in the ground for them to accomplish all these sorts of things. And so they integrated these two pieces that integrates that really unlocked this sort of virtuous cycle if that integration that makes their business perfectly attuned to the market, and is that integration that provides their competitive moat. There. Couple of things in what you said that interesting like the nature of the distribution. I knew on some level that they were two separate things. But the way you described it then that like Comcast and Disney to pays in a pot. I love that pot of what enabled this was this notion that those pipes are initially being fit for purpose and the only way to reach content into consumers homes that started to fade away as the internet Repub has pipes from being fit for purpose. Whether it's carrying TV or movie signals television signals or satellite signals to just carrying bits. And then it was no longer fit for purpose. A Netflix could just repub- as these pipes that once no one else could get access to consumers along if you wanted to send a TV show into someone's house, like they're only a very limited number of ways to do it. And Netflix took advantage of this new pipe that previously. They wouldn't have been able to get access to the internet. Just allowed it to carry ones. Zeros the other thing that. So interesting is like you said, the integration back of these two relatively separate businesses on Netflix side of the creation, and then the distribution and the collection of the dollars. And it's interesting. My understanding is net. Flicks has two very different organizations doing this like they have Los Angeles Hollywood type area, and then they have a Silicon Valley type area dealing with the respective pas. Like Hollywood does creative Silicon Valley does the tech. But as is always the case like when you integrate oak, you could also think about when you do purchase like when a merger acquisition happens. You want to think about the ways in which the some of the pots is greater than the whole. You got a sense from Disney's realize ation that if they had their own exclusive content that they could then capture some greatest share of carriage phase when it came to the cable channel negotiations and Netflix kinda had this realize Asian and like you said, it's somewhat intuitive. If we want to really attract. People into watching are quote unquote channel we to have content that they really just can't get anywhere else. There's a couple of really interesting points there that you made that I want to sort of expound upon this bit about you know, there's still the team in Los Angeles. There's still the team Los Gatos, and they do sort of totally different things is great one. But you think about that's the case for any integration, right? Apple software designers are not designing hardware. Right. Apples ops. People in China. They have nothing to do with the user interface on an iphone right is those cases like what's the purpose of a corporation?.

"That level of granular data was that actually the case that they made the movie because people like Senator book and horror movies. I am not going to say that that is the case for this show, but I have heard net. Flicks executives talk about like the amount of data that gets generated, and it's not the case that the data has replaced all the insight and in fact there were net flicks. Folks that this story swung too far the other way round. And it's like, no there's still a degree of. Creative aspects that you can never completely get in an algorithm, but they certainly use that data in order to inform decisions and to better informed decisions. They know what types of shows that people are craving because they get to the end of playlists on or they watch and they can see where they abandoned, and they can see that preference at the level of individual people. So I think the thing then to appreciate is you take all these sort of pieces that are uniquely enabled by digital total personalization zero Marshall causes of the sort of infinite ability to scale all the data that comes in. And what you do in what Netflix has done is you build an entire value chain that starts with all these sorts of things as I principles, and what that creates is a fly will that in. My estimation is an aggregation type file where they have huge number of end users that user of end users gives them power in the marketplace because they're walking with a checkbook and that checkbook is not just based on having one hundred thirty million users. One hundred and twenty million users are many it is it's also based on all the users. They end -ticipant adding going forward, and the fact that the reaching users over the world, and their mindset about what the value of show imparts to them is completely different than the mindset of judicial network, and that gives them more buying power in the market and to your point breaths smarter buying power because of the pain for and then they get more content, and that content is thus more attractive to their current users keeping them happy retaining them dramatically rolling their sort of their retention costs. And then also makes the service overall more tractors and new users because more users gives them more power in the marketplace. And I guess yes. Ear in the case of Facebook or Google is very clean because everything's free and everyone sort of moving there's no necessarily money changing hands because the average off to the side. But I don't think the dynamics are necessarily any different here in the case of Netflixing this, and the key thing is because everything is digital this flywheel can sort of scale. And there's no reason for. That file to really run out until you like Witter run round of people, and Netflix is not to the point. We kind of opened with like, yes. Growth is slow sniffly in the US. If you've been signed up for Netflix yet in the US. There's a good chance you never will. But the fact remains they still only half fifty percent penetration. That's crazy. But there's a lot of people out there that still could be up our efforts and certainly internationally that number is significantly higher. And I think these dynamics are very real, and they're very real not just relative to other internet giants that have similar sort of fly wheels. But when you particularly consider it the state of deficts competition every single one was competitors have some sort of touched to an old world model or world model that was assumed geographic constraints, and that assumed time constraints, and I kind of mentioned in passing that the moment you touch anything physical it gums up the entire works. Right that fly will. And that return that you get on this sort of fact, really starts to fall apart and every single and echoes competitors has that sort of limitation, and that doesn't mean. Mean that Netflix is going to take everything and be the only thing that anyone ever watches. I mean, we could talk about that in a little bit. But I do think it means that these sort of competitive threat to Netflix is probably even less than most people sort of appreciate simply because they have the purest sort of business model that has completely built on these assumptions is, you know, the interesting thing for me as you said that is to recognize just how God Guanzhou in a fate..

"I mean, it's not quite peer margin because you know, they have to count for loss, and they have to count for wear and tear. And if it got the sales people that are doing the checkouts and stuff like that. But big picture they buy the DVD once and then they rented EDS as many times, they can basically make. Pure profit every single time they rent it. Right. And so yes. So there you go zero marginal cost, but the problem is to your point. It wasn't scalable. It was scalable in the fact, they could put stores all over the country and by in mass and get discounts along those sorts of lines. But they were fundamentally limited by how many DVD's they could cram into a single store. There are so many women by the fact that physical goods degrade. They were fundamentally women did by the fact people had to get out and drive to their car. And like anytime, you touch an interactive physical world, there's a massive dampening that goes on these zero marginal costs sort of effects, and that's the other piece with deficits in it's critical to understanding why the company is unique. So number one the fact that their library size is comedy titles are in there. Those are immediately available to anyone user like that. Why race is was eleven thousand a day. One hundred many shows on Netflix today, every single one of them is immediately available to every single person. But then too they can also access every single person they can make all those available without any sort of constraints because it's all Digital's all coming over the net. So if you have. Band. You have access to net. They're women is broadband penetration. It's not having to go out and build stores, and once you have access you have access to everything it can scale in all directions because scale amount of content. It can scale them out of users affectively infinitely just has so many flow. Unaffected, right. I remember the internet had kind of emerged back in the late nineties in this movie. The matrix come out that I really wanted to see and I was living in London. And I'd heard about it. But it wasn't released. It hadn't been made available in the U K yet. And you hearing all this stuff from the US, and it's not in the UK. And it's like the distribution of information. It got out in front of the way that entertainment had been distributed. It was still backing this old world of like, oh, we need to launch in all these different markets. We need to hit the newspapers in the billboards and all these other things as opposed to thinking about something as a global phenomenon. And then you start to think about the supply side as well. If you're giving all these people these. Individuals shows, you're generating all this data at an individual level, and you can tell what type of movies people like to watch like you can start to say, oh people who like horror movies like, Sandra. Bullock. Why don't we get this harm movie? And we put Sandra Bullock in it. And we can see how many like get to the end of they won't Mohara. Unlike has nothing bad. They've run out of good ones demand for their and compare that to like creating shows or creating movies where you're just relying on the intuition of some studio executive because they're not informed by anywhere near.

"Like in the traps that we've often talked about of thinking about the world is average is down to just desegregating all of that population down to its most granular level of individuals and being able to track individuals and figure out what individuals like and letting individuals express that preference as opposed to this race into the middle of like the thing that you think the most people in a population would like which is what the stars programming paper when they decided what to put on that channels. That's probably what that'd be thinking about like. Okay. Six PM audience. We should put some kids stuff on eight thirty movie. Okay. It's going to be the more action or romance or something like that. And it's all blown apart. You can just pick whatever you want. I like romance movies more than. Exactly my point. We've talked a lot about the idea zero marginal costs, for example, decorate I can send out one Email, and it's basically the same price for me to send it to ten people as a send to one hundred people or thousand people, and that's very powerful in as great economic sport. Right. But this idea of zero emotional cost doesn't apply just to distributing one thing. That's the same. I mean, this applies just as much Facebook in this case in that. There is your marginal cost in generating all those unique feats because now there's massive fix cost. There's all kinds of up front, engineering and work and investment. And he's go into billion that capability to do this. And obviously in aggregate, the compute necessary to run the algorithms that push out the feeds and send them people. It's significant. I'm not saying there's no cost, but the marginal cost that is doing one more customized pays for Facebook is zero. And so this idea Marshall, this is the key to understanding software and technology period software. Cost zero digital bits cost zero which means on a marginal basis it caused zero for Facebook to provide a unique pays to every single person on earth. And so this aspect that's why zero point is so critical understanding in some respects sort of reflecting on the times, we've talked about it. I have almost done the concept short shrift by virtue of talking about things like strategically, for example, or talking about newspapers or whatever it might be win, the customization that unique delivery to every single person that's zero as well. It's zeros alway down yet. It's kind of nuts and to seek it out. Like the closest we could deliver that kind of entertainment experience before Netflix got to this point was you would have to distribute physical goods and people would have to go get a DVD or a VCR tape or something like that. And then there would only be a limited number because there's a geographic constraint around that. And they would say ok given this movie on average people would probably only this many at this time. And so you go and try and get the move. See you wanted and you go to the effort of driving to the store to get the movie, and the movie wasn't there because it was all out and that would be frustrating, and you'd need to find something else. And just the extent to which it's reimagined. And like you wanna watch this show. Why shouldn't you be able to watch this show? We've digitized all the shows. And we're creating these new digitized shows, and we'll just deliver you the show you want. It's like the promise of the internet, right? Yeah. You're getting into that other piece that I talk about is not just zero marginal cost. But also, these sort of zero transactional costs will you can scale infinitely for all intents and purposes, and I think your point about DVD's is a great example because there's an S Specht where the DVD rental business like the blockbuster business was zero marginal cost business, right? They buy DVD's and every rental is by large pure margin..

"And family, plus the rest of the world net. Flicks is like a customized channel for you of the things that you might want to watch and they are consistently creating more and more content that you might find interesting or sourcing it and so two. Is it as just a channel? I think he's grossly unfair. Yeah. I'm not trying to make a straw, man out of anyone like this is something that I wrote very mistakenly a long time ago. So I am attacking myself here to be clear the analogy that I've always used to sort of get this point across the one that you're talking about is Netflix original streaming deal with stars which at the time stars had a movie library. I think I've said this before, but it's really worth reiterating and getting into why talking about net. Flicks is interesting in meaningful Dutch, the exit TV, but sort of generally in the way, the internet changes things stars had a library of eleven thousand movies, but what was the effective library size of stars from the user perspective. It was only a few at a time. Because like you could only watch one or maybe two stars channels at any one time. So it's whatever some programming person decided to put on at that time that day, right? That's exactly right. If you had one service channel, then the fact of leverage is was one and you had no choice in it. It was whatever was being shown in to your point that laborat- has. Have one was shared by every single Sarda subscriber. Right. I think there were like five stars channels or something. But then you're has was five like five hundred percent increase. You know, did not particularly helpful. Whereas Netflix on the other hand the moment they turned on streaming. What was the effective library size from user perspective for Netflix, all those eleven thousand shows and movies that stars had available. Suddenly, you could watch any one of them at any time that you wanted. Absolutely. And the reason I don't feel bad about repeating this point again, and again, and again is it is so critical to understanding how the world is different because you have to think about it from the old world, which was predicated on the supply side in controlling distribution all those sorts of things all this decision. Making was about the supply thinking about the supply of where this applies in where it goes, and where it flows through and the end users or this huge mob out there that took what they could get. And you say about the context of CG, for example, you think about building consumer packaged goods, whatever they may be getting that. Shelf space getting on there. And then people are going to come along and pick it up, and yes, you try to target those people, you know, broadly speaking like, maybe you advertise axe body spray during a football game or something along those lines. But by and large do such a constraint around just like time and space that if you want to exert any sort of control and the overall value chain, the only place you have levers to exert that control is on the supply side. And so when you apply that sort of thinking to this idea of the stars catalogue than stars had a catalog eleven thousand and ethics had a catalog on eleven thousand, and that's the way that everyone was thinking about it. But what the internet uniquely makes possible as we've talked to get an again is it makes it possible to deliver something, customizable, just for you just for me just for a person. And I think your Facebook example is a great one. There are no two people in the world that have an identical Facebook feed. And if you think about that, it's pretty astounding there over two billion people on Facebook and every single one of those two. Billion people are seeing something different when they log onto Facebook dot com. It's a world of just blunt instruments of population level of averages..

"Because not only did I have sort of the context of the earnings to write with. But also, they raise prices. In the meantime, which I think is also something that's very interesting to this conversation. So anyhow, that's a long preamble to say how we got two nephews this week and us talking about the podcast. So let's dive in yes and not watching per box. So curious minds wanna know, you putting bent dinner of your is right now. No, I just taught my glasses on the ground, which I guess is odd theme by what was that on purpose? Any Al just got to step back? And in the context of what we talk about. There's always been a bit of debate between me, and my readers and commentators stuff about is Netflixing aggregate or know, or are they something unique unto themselves. And I think that it's a pretty important question when it comes to thinking about sort of their long-term potential and where they are. I would I I wrote about Netflix. Speaking of right answer checker. It was in the context of writing about the TV industry, generally Bissett back in two thousand thirteen and I said something to the effect that net. Flicks is just it's other channel with a different delivery mechanism. And I think that there's a lot of people that have a similar take on it. I have certainly Wong since abandoned that characterization just because to think about net flicks. As being another channel in some senses. It's right. Like, you can watch one channel on TV, and you can switch over and watch Netflix. But given the constraints. That are around channels, particularly the constraint of time. Once you remove that constraint. It becomes something else entirely. I think to characterize it as a channel nor channel I know of really wants to take over as much of your viewing habits as Netflix does the constraint on time and the constraint on choice of content. But even the notion of channel is everybody's watching the same thing at the same time. And there are instances for things like news and sports which net flicks is never going to get into when watching the same thing at the same time makes sense for everything else net flicks. He's creating in the same way. You could almost think if the Facebook newsfeed as a customized newspaper that's fueled in with news that your friends.

"Hi, James, Ben. How are you? I'm doing. Okay. How are you? I must confess to have been feeling a little under the weather this week. I've got some tummy bug or something that's been giving me a little bit of consternation. And it's one of these things it's always in the background. And it just puts a dampener on things. But the show must go on. So I will do my utmost to buck up and pay attention for the next sixty minutes. Yes. Salute to you because neither us rally this week. But we were able to keep up the narrative of us powering through to get the vodkas done. So a really appreciate you getting sick this week. I haven't figured out my melody for next week. But I'll let you know when we get there. This is just turning into like a sad story at the dot feel sorry. So you could sit on the couch may be take a day off and watch some net. Netflix. Yeah. Well, I would except for the fact that I think I might be like the loss person left in the United States. Not to have a Netflix account interesting. You're not actually alone. In fact, actually, only about half of households in the United States have a Netflix account, which given the sort of pervasiveness of deflects generally, and particularly some of the memes that have arisen in the last month in particular, maybe shocking, but you are not alone. I think it's true. I may be alone and just being a modeling nervous about subscribing to something. That's so devastatingly effective in creating content. That will have you sitting in front of the television, though. And that's my main reason for not giving them my money. I'm curious about the content, but I just don't wanna watch TV. And I feel like as soon as I start giving them money. That's exactly what's going to happen. Moral opposition, very good. Very good. It is interesting though, want seems to talk about the whole like is bad for people to watch TV anymore. That's now been replaced by Banfield. To be on the internet all the time, which I've always found very fascinating. Like would. I was a kid that was a huge thing. I would always talk about and now no one seems stuck anymore. It's interesting. How things like that? Evolve. Over time. Maybe that's just because the kids are watching Netflix on the internet instead of TV. Yeah. There you go to perfect one stone as it were right? This week. I wrote about Netflix something I've been wanting to do for a while in general. I mean, I always covered that flex particular on their earnings in the daily update. I haven't written about it on sort of like a weekly article of big piece really since twenty fifteen which was one of the articles that was leading up to allegations theory wrote about net flicks and the conservation of attractive profits, which frankly is probably the most important piece in figuring out in sort of developing areas, in theory that was a very sort of thrilling time where I wrote a series of articles all in a real that were kind of piecing together all those pieces, and then areas there is the piece that just boom here, it is altogether. Why did that apple should buy Netflix that might qualify with by the way oppression? Call myself. We already talked about a few weeks ago, but how much better would apple look right now if they own net flicks as opposed to green lighting their own shows. It is hard to argue with that Eddie, Al. So I wanted to write about them, and then a particular on right about them after the break or over Christmas disfigurement that sort of overtook the world of bird box, which I've not seen. I've known. Of seeing I hate horror films. But that's kind of beside the point. And why suicide the point I think is interesting. I wasn't break. I came back to the apple thing drop a wrote about that. And I knew Netflix earnings was coming up, but actually worked out well that I waited for that..

Our proposal was developed by law enforcement professionals and border agents at the department of homeland security. These are the resources they have requested to properly perform their mission and keep America safe in fact, safer than ever before. So Trump spoke tonight's, and yeah, you know, he laid out kind of a proposal. Look, here's the thing. You know, what I learned tonight? Both of them are inflexible. And part of that is because. The people that they are trying. To keep happy. Don't want them to be flexible. In fact, hold their feet to the fire to the point where if they give anything they'll be destroyed on social media and people will Bandon them. That's on us. That is on us. Right. That's on us.
