Travel to Penang Malaysia
"Welcome to the amateur traveler. I'm your host Chris Christensen. Let's talk about paying. I'd like to welcome the show ruth from Vancouver and that's not the one in Canada but the one in Washington and that's the state of Washington. DC. WHO's come to talk to us about Penang? Malaysia Ruth Welcome to the show. Thank you. Glad to be here and some of you met ruth. If you traveled a with me to Morocco ruth was one of the people on that trip and we're friends from long before that and you have spent the last. Three years up until the coronavirus down in southeast. Asia's that have I got. The timing writer was longer than Well, we had three years in Singapore. And then we were into our just pass our first year in Penang when the covert virus and I actually was here in the states and got stranded here as the movement control order went into effect inning and I wasn't able to get back into the country. So we're now home back in the state of Washington and Yeah. But Penang was our home for about a year. Will, and when we get to the point where we can, why should someone go to Penang? Penang is just a very interesting piece of as. You have three distinct people ethnicities who make up panning opening is one of the thirteen states of Malaysia. It's the second smallest. It's the only one that has a island plus mainland components, and the island is the part that we are familiar with. That's where we lived. We lived in Penang Island Penang. Island. Has Like I say three different distinct groups. There's the Chinese, which are about fifty percent, which is more than the most of Malaysia, your Chinese percentage, and then you have forty percent Malay- and about nine percent of the Indians who are mostly Tamil speakers so there from southern. Yup and then we have the expert groups and in particular, there's one large group of experts that now reside in Penang as a result of Malaysia's M. M.. Two H. Program, which is Malaysia my second home. So quite a few people have actually retired they've made it their permanent home. So it's a very eclectic group of different ethnicities and different cultures and they do not intermixed very much. So you really do have these distinct. And distinct foods and distinct ways of living and languages, and you can do it all in a very small space and people have been to Singapore Penang. It's about the third of the size of Singapore. And only has about fifteen percent of the population of Singapore's on the island about seven hundred thousand people that makes it much more spread out. You're not just in these big crowds of people and yet you're experiencing the same kind of cultural mixing and interaction that you might get in Singapore. I like to think of Penang sort of like Singapore before Lee Kuan Yew came in and modernized and sanitized. Everything, so Penang gives you that old feel I think of what Singapore would have been like. Before everything was cleaned up and so and not to say that it's dangerous or unhealthy to be there but you just get that kind of older. Feel you have people cook it on the streets for food and things like that. So the I highly recommend going just because it's different than a lot of other places you might go in Asia will in terms of Malaysia we're on or just off of the mainland portion of Malaysia in the. West Coast in the north. So we on cow before we're south of that which is way up by the border with Thailand and then we`re Two thirds the distance from Kuala Lumpur up to the type border. Yes yes. Like you say we're to the west of the mainland and very close actually up. I think there's only one one state may be two that are above pinning on the mainland before you get to. Thailand. So it is still pretty close to time. There is some influence of Thai Culture Thai food. In. What is in Penang Yeah I? Think you're forty miles from Thailand. yes. Yeah and what's interesting about pinning to is, and we'll talk about this a little bit more but you came and visited us when we were in Singapore and we went to the parental museum to remember that in singer. So Penang is one of three places in that Malaysian Singaporean area that has Parana Akin Chinese or also called the Straits Chinese also called the bubble Nokia's so they are located in Penang Malacca and in. Singapore. So I've actually been to all three places. I've been to the museums in each of those places and it's a fascinating culture. People from that culture came from China from mainland. China many years ago. treaters remember correctly yet and they came in and adopted many of the Malay Practices and cultures, and some of the foods and sort of turn them into their own. They were usually very very wealthy and their homes were extravagant and their furniture was lavish and carved, and they also incorporated some of the colonialism of the British. So they had fancy dinner ware and fancy glasses and mirrors and their homes were just beautiful and in Penang you can go onto Church Street, which is down in Georgetown and there is a Paranthan Museum there for Twenty Ringgit. which is almost nothing that's four ringgit to a dollar. So it's five dollars you can go in and get a tour of the product museum there, and it's fascinating. It was owned actually by a gangster. A Chinese gangster and his family I and It's now part of the state I believe as a museum and they do try to preserve this product can culture because it is only really in these three distinct places.

Episode 003: Direct Primary Care with Dr. Rob Lamberts - burst 01
"So why don't wind you kind of explain for somebody that doesn't know what what is when we say direct primary care, what we mean by that today yet people. Able to set the same as concierge medicine. Because they've heard about concierge, which is usually a higher end higher cost healthcare and in rich people sign up and they pay a lot at doctors and they get a lot of money act for them and they get access to the doctor anytime. They want on an extra special care. It's kind of like writing for class. In this is different than that, for several reasons, first office, the cost us a lot lower. Direct Primary Care Averages under a hundred dollars a month, and in my average cost us more toward fifty dollars fifty between fifteen, sixty dollars per month depending on the age of the patient. As low as thirty, five dollars per month. and then the The other difference is that that as opposed to cost you care a lot at times still bill insurance. And then they'll do for an uninsurable they. There's a part that that insurance doesn't pay for that they they're able to do. A fee for a monthly fee or something like that indirect trial care you. Get, rid of Allah charts. You don't want the patient to get rid of insurance, but in terms of the care that you're giving that I'm giving my patients, pay me for it. Once a month, that's it, and it has nothing I. I. Don't accept money from insurance updates i. we will work with insurance companies to make sure the patient gets especially. Care that they need hospital care. They need or this procedures in that type of stuff. But in terms of paying primary care, which really kind of silly that that it's insured anyone because it's not expensive Yeah. It's there's nothing that I can do that Iraq thousand dollar deal as a primary care doctor as opposed to specialists where in Oregon vedic surgeon or something like that. Go through twenty, thousand dollars with. With. Just one procedure So You know I say it's it's a lot like auto insurance covering gas in your car or oil changes were tires, and why do we do that? What we don't do that because it's just not expensive enough. So. I'm paid by my patients and instead of being paid her visit, I'm paid once a month and that said I don't charge beyond that. So the two central things are the monthly payment in pay being paid by by. Derail,

The language your body's speaks and intuitive and energy medicine breath with thirty years of experience. She has served on the Faculty of Energy Medicine by near Donna Eden since two thousand and dead and ditches. Healing techniques all over the world. And in today's episode, we're GONNA explore what she shared in her new book. The language. Your Body speaks to Ellen. Are you ready to inspire. Awe! But what I want to? Do is maybe help people. Find their inner inspiration, the inspiration that comes from them, because each of us is inspired by different things, and in different ways and I love to celebrate how different we are and helping people find their own path to To Awareness Afo I love that you sort of. Play the role of a mentor so that you can find people in the regulations and allowing them to take steps that will help them find their way, which is one full We usually start our show with the any inspirational court. Is it a cord that comes to mind right now? Something that you can share and maybe tell us how you apply that court in your day-today life. Oh Wow okay I'm not one of those people who actually works for quotes from quotes I actually like to come up with things to stay in the moment that are true for the moment because I'm really a language. And so That's a hard one for I. don't carry around. Quite S- per. Se so yeah. I'M NOT GONNA I'M NOT GONNA. Give one. In that way, but I'm hoping that as as we talk I'll say things that will strike on people and. They don't have to quote me, but maybe awaken them to their own quote. Create sounds good. I love that We're GONNA, have some gun moments. Today's episode because I love Qigong and I know that in your book you draw a lot from traditional Chinese medicine. Right when you talk about five elements, dog bar the Meridians and things like that So how did it all begin you like? Where did it all start Maybe she could talk about your childhood. What was it like? Okay well I was originally trained by inner teachers and It actually started as you know before I became aware that I was psychic or intuitive abilities, I was very attuned to languages and I talked a little in the book about how I used to listen to foreign language programs. All the time I was just fascinated and I felt like I am I could understand them, even though I didn't know what the words were I felt like there's something in language that speaks to US beneath the specifics of the words, and then later on. I writer, I'm a creative writer as well as I finished a novel, and I was waiting for inspiration and my grandmother WHO's dead so up behind me with a message for me. and. I thought well. This is interesting and I voted down. And through a series of coincidences, I ended up at a little, psychic fair, and the psychic looked at me, and she said you're maternal. Grandmother is standing behind you message for you, and then she repeated the message that I had gotten already. And I was a little bit of a Brat I said well. It doesn't have anything new to say. But, but I was very interested is. I s the psychic. Are you reading my mind, or are you really tuning into my grandmother? Is She really there and I give her credit because this was a five dollar reading and she said. My belief that your grandmother's really there and that you're picking up on her energy, and that you can get messages, and if you just would slow down, listen, you would hear them so couple days later I was cleaning my house, which was an unusual activity for me at the time. And I noticed the ticker tape in my head of letters and I thought yeah. Wonder if they say anything, so I started writing them letter by letter on the typewriter, and they were a message from my inner teachers, and they said we're going to teach. We're GONNA. Come train. You were GONNA give you. We're going to give you a insights. We're going to explain things, and then you're going to have experiences in your life that teach you how to understand the perspective that were introducing, and so I went through a very intensive at least well. Trained because say seven years, but it's forty plus years. I've been doing it for many many years now, and they're still trading me. But they did at some point. They. Get very ill and in the process of healing. You'RE GONNA learn how to become a healer. And I thought well. That's okay. Wasn't something that I set out to do. But it happened and moved to California I did get very sick. I went to a doctor who said I can't help you. What you have isn't medical, or you know isn't something that medicine can help you going to send you to a complimentary. Practitioner. And so I went to this applied kinesiology. She was a chiropractor and I'm Chris just enchanted? She worked with Meridians and and various subtle energies, and I had never heard of any of this stuff, and what I discovered in the process of getting better was that I could see my own energies I could see her energies. I could predict what the muscle test they do. Muscle testing in that tradition what they were going to say and I could look at the pills on the wall of the supplements and I knew which ones I needed, and what doses would be and ever occurred to me that this was possible except. There I was with nothing to live there while she worked with me and it was like I. This woken me and. That's how I got started and. When I was? Had recovered that practiser called and said Hey, can you do that with other people and I said? And I went in, and I was able to see what was going on for other people, so I started working in her office as a medical intuitive and people started coming for channel readings and healings and it just it just grew from there
The Rise of the Ratty Muscle Cars
"Hello my friends and welcome back to another episode of talking Mo- part before we kick things off, I just wanted to announce that. In case you have not heard the build Mo- par project car has been chosen and we. The people have decided that the modern Hemi will be going into a nineteen sixty eight dodge DART superstock tribute car, so now Hemi pages is on the hunt for nineteen sixty eight dodge DART hardtop to use as the platform for the built. So if you or anyone you know is selling a nineteen sixty eight dodge DART. Please reach out to my friends over a Hemi pages. You can go to Henry Pages. Dot. Dot Com or even build. Mo-. Par Dot com and reach out to those guys and let him know what you got. This is going to be a really exciting build, and if you didn't get a chance to vote on the first round, be sure to vote in on the next rounds and also tell all your friends about this project. We need to blow this thing up. We need to get thousands. Hundreds of thousands hopefully, millions of people involved in this and just see what we can come up with as a community I'm sure we can cook up something crazy, so that should be really fun. Maybe you've got a moped project. Project you're building or maybe you just went out and bought yourself your I. Mo par. Maybe it's not a show car. Maybe it's a little ratty. That's what we're talking about here today. I WanNa talk about the rise of the ratty muscle cars, because it seems to me that in the past few years, these ratty muscle cars and radio trucks have blown up. They are huge right now and I think I have the answer as to why this is occurring, but you know. I think it's multifaceted, but I really liked the movement I think it's an awesome movement. I think. It opened some doors for people that would otherwise not be able. Able to get into a muscle car. I think it lowers the barrier for entry for people like myself that don't have a lot of money can't buy show winning car that can't buy a fully restored Khuda or something crazy like that, but maybe you found a ratty mo par in your local classifieds for a couple of grand that needed a little bit of work, but you could tow it home and get running and driving lickety-split and get it on the road. That is Iraqi muscle car, and that's what I like to see. I love to see these cars on the road and not rotting into the ground. I think it's awesome. So now that we're warmed up, let's get this show on the road. This week project car the week is actually a truck that was posted on Wednesday July twenty, second at three PM, and going with the theme of ratty muscle cars and ratty trucks I thought this was a perfect fit, and it also happens to be really cool and has a ton of potential and would make an excellent project vehicle for anybody that wants to get in the Mo- par game and doesn't have a lot of coin in their pocket, so let's get into the at. Nineteen Seventy Dodge D. One hundred short box, five, thousand, six, hundred ninety five dollars Columbia Falls Montana lowered six inches the right way twenty inch wheels out back in eighteen inch up front wheels and tires, brand, new three eighteen auto, call or text titles. Status is clean. All right folks what we have here is what appears to be a running driving nineteen seventy truck. And it's got a cool Patina on it. It is not a show truck by any means if you think you're going to get. Show quality paint, and no dense dings or bumps bruises. You are wrong now. In case you're new to the show. I am a huge fan of mope par trucks and especially the nineteen seventy two to nineteen eighty, because I do have seventy six myself but I really love the early swept lines, and they have a ton of potential, but the good thing about trucks. For some reason they look amazing when their team it out. Maybe it's just me and now don't get me wrong I. Do love a beautiful. Beautiful Show Truck I. Love Him. I think they're gorgeous. There's something about an old. You know for lack of a better term farm truck that I really like especially ones that are slightly customized. You know little lowered with some nice wheels. They just have a personality and its personality that I really liked the nice thing about this one is that runs drives so like many of the other project cars? We've talked about the past. You can go out and enjoy this thing while you work on it this. This thing is good to go scout brand, new wheels and tires on it, and you know what it runs and drives. It's got a three eighteen in it, so you can keep three eighteen, or you can upgrade. Get a modern. Hemi, you know five thousand this. You could probably get this trump for five grand,

Is Affiliate Marketing Dead
"Welcome to another episode of marketing. School I'm Eric, Su and I'm Neil. Patel and today we're GONNA talk about if affiliate marketing. Is that right, so let's talk about what affiliate marketing is I, so let's say I want. Promote Neal's Uber suggests okay. He sells it for twenty five dollars a month. Or whatever it is, I'm just making numbers up right now, so let's say twenty five dollars a month. He might say Eric for every customer that you get from me. I Will Give Me Twenty Percent Commission, which is five dollars a month great. I'll do it. I'll push to my blog my audience. Let's say Seo focused audience. It might be a good fit for them, and if I recommend it to them I'll. I'll collect a commission, and the beauty of this is as continues to stack up and I. Have this quote Unquote Free Traffic, I will continue to bring in revenue he gets new customers were both satisfied, because the terms of the are acceptable to both of us, the thing is affiliate. Marketing has a bad rap because people will do really dirty black hat things to do whatever it takes to make a buck. Buck right, so a lot of people may think marking is like Oh. You know markets dirty might take on. It and I'm sure. Neal's TEGAS actually I want to speak for Neil. TAKE ON AS AFFILIATE MARKETING NOT GONNA die. You know why Amazon is affiliate marketing. A lot of people are doing deals around the world is just affiliate. Marketing is a term itself is bad, but it's not going anywhere affiliate marketing. Marketing as Eric mentioned, a lot of people say bad, because there's these affiliates who will go out there and create force continuity offers being like by the skin-care. anti-wrinkle cream is free trial, and then they just keep sending to every single month. Even if you want to cancel, and you don't want, and they don't tell you, that's why affiliate marketing has a bad rap, but it's amazing way to grow a business. There are so many players out there in the space that can push your product pusher service. Drive you sales. I was talking with the founder of get response years and years ago. He was telling me how they get a thousand sign up today purely from affiliates. That's a lot. When you look at Russell Brunson from click funnels is a really good example, so there bootstrap. They'll give you I. Think About Forty Percent Commission on each new customer that's driven which a lot. Most companies won't do that, but it just goes to show 'cause he comes from an affiliate marketing background where he plays a lot of different products. If you incentivize people the right way, they're going to go under the fittings out for you and a good chunk of your business can come from a again. You have to look at Amazon when you're selling on Amazon I. Think what are they take? They take a look at fifteen percent commission. That's affiliate marketing finance. If you have scale, yeah and that. Was On the poster child for affiliate marketing done right and at scale. During covert at during the early days of Covid is Amazon. Was email letter to their affiliates? Scrutiny affiliates yeah and. We're going to pay you either. We're GONNA stop paying your pay you less. It was one or the other is naturally getting some new cells I think affiliate marketing is greater especially if you're starting out. If you have some type of distribution, you have some type of audience and you are on the fence on whether you want sell a product or not. Let's say you're on the fence on, if you. You want to sell a course. You can go to click. Bank and look at what courses do well. That are tied to your niche, and you can push out course. If it does well, you can contemplate doing your own without having to do a lot of work upfront. Similarly, you can go find other products. You considered for marketing affiliate products. There's a lot of lists out there and you can. Can find whatever using your audience interested, and then you can serve them better yet. You serve your audience I. Ask them what they need. Then serve that up. If it does really well, and you think you can actually build something, or maybe you can go buy something for cheap you go do it, and you can collect even higher march of that all

It's going to have live news. Life sports other sorts of news and sports replays highlights that kind of thing and crucially has a free tear at as a tier with advertising we can watch about two thirds of the catalog just by signing up and not paying anything there are ways you can take out the ads and unlock the full catalogue if you WanNa pay, but having that sort of on ramp that free just sign up and start watching thing. It's something that these other big services in the streets haven't tried yet. Yeah, I would just sort of generally speaking. Have we talked about the free cheering a bit but? In terms of these other players out there have any cover merged as must have service to rebel Netflix's certainly a streaming service, the new streaming service that's landed with the biggest slash by far is Disney plus. One media analyst when it launched last year there was one media analyst and widely followed one who called it one of the greatest product launches of all time. To give you a sense. Track Google search trends around these launch dates, and the Google search trends for Netflix are a good baseline. You know it's established. It's always very popular as a search gives you a good baseline of how other services stack up and people, search addressed most of these other services. They haven't crossed the level of net search interest, even on launch days, whereas Disney plus like quadrupled the amount of Netflix interests on its launch day now it's come down since then, but among these new services Disney is the one to beats, and nobody has even come close so far. Are also you've been testing out the service. How has the experience on Peacock Ben? Overall I've been having a really positive experience with peacock so far to be honest. I wasn't expecting all that much. Since we do already have Sumani streaming services, but the fact that it has this free tier is John mentioned where you can still watch. Tons of movies and TV shows with ADS does make it stand out from competitors like Netflix and Hulu it gives you something for free that similar to say a Pluto TV or a to B, but with this premium streaming. Streaming service interface, so it looks really good, and you also have the opportunity to upgrade if you want to. It's pretty easy to navigate. It has a few quirks, and there are some features that are still missing but overall. It's a solid free surface at launch. If you don't mind watching those ads in terms of that that user experience that the navigation the experience itself. How does it stack up against DISAPP- loss or Netflix's or some other more Polish premium services so in. In my mind, peacock isn't quite trying to be a Netflix or Hulu or HBO Max. It has a similar tile layout, and you can browse things by TV shows and movies and get recommendations, but it's kind of doing something different, and it's probably not going to replace any of those others for you, but it's something you can get for free to have more options. It reminds me a little bit of Amazon prime video in a way like on that one you can get. Get, a lot of shows and movies included as part of your prime subscription, but you'll find others mixed in that. You do have to pay for so on peacock. You'll find some shows with a little purple feather in the corner, which means you have to upgrade premium to watch them, but they're so plenty of free options to. And since we're in this time of economic uncertainty, you know free services a welcome option, even if you don't watch it every single day, right? Joan. Beyond this free tier is there anything else about peacock that makes stand out, or the folks should know about? Yeah, definitely, the frontier is obviously the first thing that people are going to encounter when they try to sign up and they realize they don't have to provide any sort of payment information. Start watching. But beyond that you know. Being in the pandemic, there's a lot of things that peacock wanted to have available right now for its launch that aren't a manifest really until next year or later, for example, the entire reason that it's launching right now in the middle of July is that originally peacock witches, NBC's streaming service thought they'd be able to piggyback on all the interest in the Olympics. That should be happening right now. Is the broadcasting partner for the Olympics in the United States, and so of course everyone remembers every Olympic season how there's just like blanket coverage on NBC. All of NBC's other cable channels. But because we don't have that until next year, that's a huge driver to get people interested and knowledgeable that that the service exists. That just doesn't exist right now. Also their originals. They have nine original series at launch, but just like everybody else all their production of new content. At least any live action content had to be suspended in March, and so they don't have as much in their pipeline. That's going to be ready to release win. They had hoped to release it as have if we weren't in this situation where everybody's lockdown the also could you break down the? Tiers, obviously, there's the free cheer that's at basement. What are you getting with those I? Think there's two different paid tears. He kinda run through them. And you actually get sure so in the free tear you get thirteen thousand hours of TV shows, Movies News Life Sports. Some of the biggest name shows you'll find. There are and Recreation, Thirty Rock, law and order. Order Svu but you know. Some of those are also currently on Netflix and Hulu to so there's some confusion there potentially, and you also know that the office won't be coming to peacock until January when it's calm when his contract with Netflix runs out, but in the meantime you'll also find current episodes of NBC shows one week later on that free tier. In terms of movies, you've got some big slightly older hits like Jurassic Park the Bourne identity, the Matrix and also newer kind of Oscar Z. ones like phantom thread and tally, and so for something. That's free. You'll probably find something. You WanNa Watch, but then you'll also find these two paid tears. One is five dollars a month which gives you access to the full Peacock Library which is about twenty thousand hours of TV, and movies, but you'll still see ads on that one. If you WANNA GO AD free. It costs ten dollars a month and you'll get still get that full libraries well. A few things you'll find on the premium tears, but not the free tier are all of the episodes of peacock originals, the major one launch being brave new world, and you'll also find more new movies and also next day access to new episodes of current. NBC shows one interesting thing that we haven't really seen before is that you'll get early access to some shows like late night with Seth Meyers and the tonight show. Show with Jimmy Fallon the night that they air, so you can watch them at eight PM instead of eleven thirty pm, but that would actually start until those shows are back in the studio and not running from home during the pandemic. Okay We've talked about this before, but they're just too many strips out there. They're all asking for money. Yes, peacock has a free tier, but there's clearly they want people to. Upgrade to these premium tears. How does market support so may services Comey Services? Can a household actually afford to pay for so from the experts that I've talked to and the research that they've been doing? It seems like there's a couple of interesting things going on one is that the total number of streaming services that people are subscribed to and are trying is going up now. That's partially because in the. The pandemic so many entertainment choices that we normally would that normally would keep us from streaming aren't happening right now, and we're all locked up in our homes, and so it's the primary way other than regular TV. Your needs that you would entertain yourself when you're stuck at home anyway, that's to do with it, but even before the pandemic. We were starting to see that all. This wave of new services what starting to tap higher, the amount of services people were trying and also subscribing to. But what we've found in the pandemic from the research that I've seen as that people are also much more willing to cancel subscriptions so. It's mostly price sensitivity factor as you know. Jobless numbers are soaring, and as people are reconsidering howl. They dedicate their money every month. Once they hit the point where a free trial ends or this ends. They're more willing to quit. Because they become more educated on other options that don't require payment that conserve their entertainment needs, you know. Alison, she mentioned to be There's other ones like that. That are free services that peacock sort of straddles the line with people are realizing that they have those options to if they don't WanNa, keep paying
UnitedHealth’s Profits Surge Amid Health-Care Cancellations
"In the last few months, have you pushed off any regular? Non Cova doctors appointments due to the coronavirus. If so, you are far from alone, Wall Street got quarterly results today from ensure Dow. Component United Health the company's earnings per share of seven dollars and twelve cents handily beat estimates. Analysts were expecting five dollars and twenty eight cents.

The company does go out of its way to say that it expects the results are GONNA be offset in the quarters ahead by the assistance measures already taken and the resumption of deferred care. We hadn't really thought about that. You've heard from all the car insurance companies where they've come out and said that they would be giving people a break on this. This is a little bit of a different situation. Because UNH expects that healthcare will eventually get picked up all that stuff that's been deferred will eventually get there. I. Don't know why this had not occurred to me before. Just the idea of all the deferred care nobody was going to doctor for a long period of time. In fact, doctors were shut and wouldn't they saying anybody except for emergency purposes?

You're Gonna Die by Neville Medhora
"Framework for happiness was short, concise, but impactful book that I wanNA. Share with you WANNA. Share with you a few things. You can grab from this book that can change everything that can really help you see things differently. The return on investment of this book is incredible number one this book a short book. It's forty four pages. Neville's one of my favorite writers. He's a blogger over a copywriting course, Nev- blog DOT COM. We also did a must read on his other book. That's available Amazon called. This book will teach you how to write better. One of my favorite things about Neville's books in writing in general is that it's to the point. It's no fluff. You really get right into quickly and I really love about this book. It's currently five dollars on kindle. If you order on Amazon, you can order paperback version as well but. But the impact is book can have on your life on your business on everything you do is way more valuable than five dollars or the time it takes to read forty four pages I highly recommend you read this book in one go one shot because its impact is really felt when you read the totality of of the message that he's trying to convey to you and I. WanNa Start with my first. Take away from this book. The first take way you have when you read this book is. Life is short statistically. If you look at a lot of data is a lot of research, you shows you charts showing you. Hey, how old are you now? How much time you have left on this earth on average you know obviously you can learn. Die earlier or later. How many people your age are still around all that kind of stuff now I want to address the elephant in the room that this is not macabre. He's not addressing this issue of death to kind of just make everybody down in the dumps. He's actually empowering us. US With this information, he's actually saying. Hey, having this information is going to help. You have a happier life because now you know what you're dealing with. You know how much time you have to use. The currency of life is time and imagine you're going shopping, and you have no idea how much money you have in your pocket it. What's your budget? You'll know if you should spend a little. You might be conservative because you're afraid. You don't know what's going on, so it's good to know the data. Okay, the second takeaway from. From this book is really reflecting on. How are you spending every day? Every day is your life, so I'm recording this towards the end of my day right? This Day is gone forever. I cannot take this day back. I can't revisit. A can't rewind how I spent. It is really that's it. It's in the history books. I can't take those days back and everyday day has a significance. How old you are! What's your health like right now what you're able to do with your life and your brain and with people around you the? The loved ones and friends around you. You really paints a good picture showing you. Hey, live in the moment, understand that this time is precious understand that time is fleeting and made me really reflect. How am I spending every day at work in my business, which is the bulk of my time every day am I happy. Is this something that I can do improve it? There's nothing I can do to make me feel better about. Is there something I can do to have more of an enjoyable day every day with a smile on? If I don't like something I should stop doing it. It's just not worth it if it's GonNa, make me you know one percent more profit. It's just not worth it because at the end of the day. You don't want to be the richest presenting the graveyard. Hey, so that second takeaway was really heavy. It was really having a good way. Really mean we reflecting made me go on a walk and think about Hey, what? What can I do every day to enjoy life more enjoy my work. I'm not saying I'm going to hang them all up and not do anything and not work and just live on a beach. No, I like what I do I like building businesses. I like helping my team and you know built amazing products, but there are things I. do every day that I do enjoy. I need a cut those out periodically regularly. An audit my life so that I really can look back and say I made use of every day with a smile on my face. Really WHAT YOU WANNA! Do the third takeaway from this book is He really reminds you that you're not living alone in this world, right? There're friends and family around. You loved ones and a lot of us including me. I'm the first to be guilty of this. Have put all those people on the back burner for a number of years because I'm so focused on building a great business. Business. I'm not spending as much time with them. As much as I want to. I'm not in touch as much as I, should all that kind of stuff and those people just like you are going to die? They're not gonNA. Be around forever, so are you taking into account? I'm not saying you shouldn't focus on your business to do everything you can I'm just saying that while you're doing. Doing that there's another parade going by which is life, which is everything around business, and if you don't periodically, allow yourself time schedule time to join that parade to join those families and friends on the weekends to do, you know short breaks and gone vacations with people that you love feudal, make time for it is just not going to happen, and you're going to have regrets and I know. Know, for a fact for myself I have regrets already for the last ten years of some of the people I haven't spent time with that I should have spent more time with I. Look back and asked if I did car vow a day here and or a few hours or phone call would make a huge difference in the businesses outcome, probably not socially of a small handful of people. People that I think are important to me. In my life, the fourth takeaway was probably the biggest one of all,
NBC's free streaming service Peacock hopes to cut through subscription fatigue
"Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Matt Melanie and Matt Peacock, which is the streaming offering from NBC? Universal and comcast is coming online next week. You know people made fun of Peacock in the industry. People were like Oh. Peacock is so late and peacock is so behind, and peacock is going to be free and Haha that's funny and I have to. To I'M GONNA treat myself not for one minute that I think that was funny. I thought that is sensible logical, and it will be a standout in this crowded field, and I kind of feel like I'm right now a lot of people. I think also were thinking that I was right. We'll see, but there is definitely what what comcast calls subscription, fatigue and I agree. Agree there is a feeling in the consumer world that there's all these subscription television services that are pitching themselves as Netflix's alternatives or or Netflix's for X., or you know you gotta get this upgrade to HBO and get HBO. Max and they all cost money. And if you look at the advertising associated with peacock there hammering home, the fact that this is free, if you. You want a free alternative to those other guys. This is for you and there's some pretty good stuff. I mean there's thirty rock. There's law and order. There's movies from NBC Universal You. Know they've got decent stuff on there. And they're looking for that casual TV viewer, who is migrating away from the cable universe, cutting the cord and looking for something they can kind of. And they don't necessarily need the latest greatest game of thrones that that. The premium subscribers looking for I wouldn't use game of thrones, because that they would need but other things they don't necessarily need, and they don't want to find it and I know people in the industry. For example, it still haven't figured out how to get HBO Max and it all just feels confusing, and and they can't deal with it and so this thing that being free and And the casual viewer that's definitely does appeal to me. You know if I had a long day. I WanNa, Watch something short easy, familiar and free, but you can also pay if if you don't have comcast us as your cable provider, or if you don't have a an access to it that way, you can pay five dollars a month and if you wanted to be ad, free? Free you can pay ten dollars a month and I will note that both of those prices are cheaper than an HBO subscription. So that is an option that I. Think is the people will want to look at meanwhile. Disney plus dropped Hamilton. They've needed something. They haven't had anything that really appeals to older people, or you know not not little kids for a long time they had a huge jump in people downloading their APP over that Hamilton weekend. Whether Hamilton really helps Disney right now remains to be seen, but I think the buzz around. It can't hurt no definitely not, and that's why they moved up the theatrical release, which was not supposed to be till twenty twenty one and put it on the service over the July fourth weekend they. They need a positive narrative right now Disney. Because this next earnings, call is going to be brutal. They have zero revenue from the theme. Parks Pin is just in free fall without sports. They have no movies in theaters because there aren't any theatres they need something. And now they have these Hamilton numbers that they'll be able to reveal and I've seen a lot of people speculating about. About. How Big Hamilton is going to be on Disney pleasant? How many people are just going to subscribe for that? I think those numbers are going to be big but I think there are a little bit skewed in the discussion by the fact, that Hamilton is a media phenomenon and everybody on social media in the media world to talk about it. Ad Nauseam so I'm not sure. Sure exactly how big it's going to be. I think you may disagree with me a little bit on that I just feel like you know reminds me of Hbo had things like the Sopranos and everybody was talking about it and you say well. It's in a bubble, and it's the media, elites, or whatever, but the truth is that seeps out in gives the gives the product A. A bit of a sheen a feeling that you kind of made me want to be a part of that and want to watch what they have. The the issue is coming. Follow it up with anything and I don't know we'll see. Thank you matt. Thank

User Fees in Canada
"Is this is a little bit of a serious example of things are could go wrong with with pay per view air traffic control. You guys know what I'm talking about here. So apparently, apparently the. So I'm going to I'm going to summarize a story, and then you're going to say no, that's not it is at all. My summary is in Canada where they have sort of a user fees based air. Traffic Control System. The pandemic and the resulting reduction in aircraft traffic has caused that entity to Kinda start losing money, and so there what increasing fees or something like that is that what's happening? David desma. This is your story to win. That's what they're working on. Yeah, and there's a these are permanent increases or just some sort of you know a one time. Surcharge kind of thing. While a cash impact from the from from this. PROMPTING THEM TO PROPOSE NAP Canada proposed a twenty nine point five percent increase in base rates. That would be deferred. They say over a five year period exactly how that Perot would work I'm sorry, deferred or ramp up. Deferred I. think that's what I think. That's what they're talking about is phasing it in over by using it in. Yeah, okay are. But two hundred and forty two million would allow Nath Canada to meet the minimum revenue level, and must have under its existing debt structure. To seek additional debt financing, and here we go, there's a whole problem with a fee for service air traffic control system. That's A. We were told Oh. Be Predictable. Will be able to invest when we want to. It'll bring money in, and we'll be able to upgrade equipment without going through the big government followed a raw, and you get a downturn like this and we need thirty percent more just to keep the doors open. and to preserve our finance obligations intact and. We don't have that problem here. No! We don't have that problem here because. It's a government service. Yeah, the government funds it and money is there whether traffic is up or down? Yes. I agree that's I think that's a very reasonable way to do it given that it's a public service, and it's a community value and whatnot, but let's go back to Kennedy here for a second so although I knew they had I'm sorry. Save facetiously calling it pay per view, but user user fees. What does it actually cost? Do you know? And how does it even work for example if I get in my one seventy two? If I were based in Canada and I got into one seventy two, and went flying for one hundred dollar hamburger, a couple of hours away from my home base, and then flew back. Would I get a bill from air traffic control for that flight? I believe so beliefs I and ballpark. WHAT WOULD THAT BILL BE? How much would it cost? Dan I can't tell you ten bucks or one hundred bucks I. I mean I flew into. London Ontario. The diamond aircraft factory years ago, the Debonair uh-huh and I believe I got a bill for like twenty five dollars, and that was for the up and back. Okay and that was a while ago, that was. Nine thousand nine. Thousand Twenty twenty years ago okay. So I don't know. Yeah, you know what. What the current! Bill would be for that operation? But it ain't gonNA be free yeah. This is with the flip side of which is is not free in using scare quotes in us. No we pay taxes. We buy fuel taxes. Miraculously, have have stayed in effect for many many years forty plus years. Maybe longer than that and Is is the covers covers. Is a great way to measure or to build by operation or number of flights because you burn more gas, the more you fly, and you pay more tax. Yeah. No I. Think I guess that seems reasonable. I mean. As you in coming up trying to come up with a way to allocate these expenses. Maybe, he's ads can punch into your. CALCULATORS REAL QUICK NAP Canada last year. Handled three point four million flights. And collected one point four billion in service charges built million versus billion. Four million and one point four billion in charges, wait a minute sounds like a lot per flight. It adds up baby.
YouTube TV vs. Sling TV: Which Streaming Service Is Better?
"I've been subscribing a YouTube TV about a year as a cable alternative that cost less than cable, TV and offers a way better experience, but youtube just announced a huge thirty percent price hike for the service, and I'm rather upset about it. As are many others as have been noted on social media, I'm Jefferson Graham let me fill you in on. Today's talking tech now. When it launched in twenty seventeen YouTube TV thirty five dollars a month, and gave you a host of cable channels more than enough as far as I was concerned, but way fewer the hundreds on cable. You know the ones we never watch. You didn't have to rent. Stupid. Cable boxes or DVR's everything was streaming, and that cloud dvr offered unlimited storage, not only that you could start a show on TV and watch the rest on your phone or tablet without missing a beat. But then youtube started adding more channels in upping the fee. Before the latest price hike, it'd ballooned up to fifty dollars monthly. Beginning July thirtieth for current subscribers, the TAB is now a whopping sixty five bucks. Youtube tried to soften the blow by announcing new channels like MTV and comedy central, but that does nothing for me. How about an option to stay at fifty dollars? Sands MTV because I don't want my MTV and like Trevor Noah, but I can live without comedy central to so as I mentioned. I'm rather upset. As, my friend Peter Chatty noted on twitter. All of the sudden Youtube TV is sounding an awful lot cable, which is why we got YouTube TV in the first place. So what are we going to do well? The cheapest option is to switch to sling TV which just announced that. If you sign up by August I, it will freeze pricing the thirty dollars monthly for twelve months good. But slaying doesn't have as many channels for instance no CBS or NBC local, so if you like to dvr shows on those networks, you'll have the spring for an external dvr. It's a lot of work. The Air TV model that sling sells for a hundred dollars requires an external, hard drive Ka Ching add another hundred dollars, or so, who live TV is fifty five dollars, but I don't believe for a minute that the rates are not going up soon. So I started shopping cable TV again I did some Internet searches and played around with the comcast and spectrum websites, which reminded me why left cable in the first place the come on raids started around sixty bucks in once you added in the equipment rental for Modem, TV boxes and DVR's plus all those fees, and you're now north of one hundred twenty five dollars so now youtube. TV doesn't seem so bad. I'm still furious. Google and I don't understand why the company can't cut slight viewers like me slack and offer them package with fewer channels. But. You know what I'm not going back to cable.

More Congressmen and women who are at the extremes of their party in the same way that in the eleventh district. Of North Carolina last night, a person more conservative. Than Ben Trump and mark meadows wanted to win one the primary in a Republican primary north. Carolina I think it's an example of. Of both parties just kind of running to the extremes I wanNA keep talking about all of this I wanted to get to two been very good point about Democrats trying to. Whole to stretch this out to be an election issue because I. Don't know that disagree with that either, but we do have to get onto our quickfire round.

Them to us. PODCAST AT POLITICO DOT COM We have questions from the audience. We call it quickfire round. We'll see how quickfire these can be may never end up being that quick, but we'll give one to each Each guest Alexis from Miami will start with Ben Alexis from Miami asks who is doing more damage to trump Sarah Cooper or the Lincoln project. I honestly am not sure that either of them are doing any significant damage. To trump I do think that trump is owned man and the massive source of of damage that he does is is self earned into himself. so Alexis. I will tell you that I. Guess if I had to do marginally I would say that the Lincoln Project. Is. Utterly irrelevant, it is entirely about UH, taking money from donors and spit, and putting it into the pockets of political consultants and had buyers those things crop up occasionally, but they've been doing a lot of that in recent years. So that's what all politics. Henry Henry Stephen from Charleston not sure if that's West Virginia or South Carolina, but Stephen From Charleston asks. Why has president trump given up on covid? Why has he given up on what? covid nineteen. You know I think. The president has was always. Lukewarm about the shutdown He wants to get back to what he believes is a good selling point. Which is the? Once robust economy and I think he also knows that he loved it. He had daily press conferences in April that were canceled when he suggested he says jokingly ingesting bleach to fight the disease. Ice Look at elections all around the world and virtually every incumbent left right and center as seen an increase in their approval ratings in their party standings, because all of country once in a time of crisis is called in stable leadership. Trump is about the only one who seen his standing down and I think he knows that. Elliott Brinda from Los Angeles Why based on this question I'm going to guess she lives a little bit outside of Los Angeles but it says. Why do protesters and rally-goers get to spread Kovic while when I still can't go back to work only God? They're not getting sprayed coded the protests have generally been. Very mast up. I have been one of those voices saying that all protesters should wear masks. So, so, it's not, it's not a situation where the protesters are getting spread Cova. We want everybody. To be as safe as possible while they're outside, and that includes wearing a mask washing your hands, and doing all the all the things, a possible that keeps stuff safe now. One difference is an outtake Brenda's. I'll take Brenda's premise. At least this bar one of the things that you can't do very well at a protest is socially distanced and this is a real concern with the protesters, even though the majority of them wearing masks, the inability to social distance during a protest, is a problem one way to correct for that problem or ameliorate. That problem would be to stop. The police tactic that's called Kennelling this involves them kind of shutting. The protesters together along corridors where it's easier to control them I think the most famous case actually happened here in New York about. Or a bunch of protests about five thousand protesters were trapped on the Manhattan grades for an hour and a half. To Kettle them between Brooklyn and Manhattan. Except that the police could not do that and let the protesters fan out a little bit or that would also increase safety and decrease the spread of the virus but it's not a brandon. It's not a situation where where people are turning a blind eye. To the potential spread of the virus protests something that people who care about the protesters lives. Are Very very concerned about me. Personally, it's one of the reasons why have not been at a protest. I live with my mother who seventies high risk person and I have not felt like. I can risk to protests that I support in theory. given the realities of the virus. Okay Ben Jason From Boston Asks Can Biden Win Without a black woman assuming as VP. I actually think he could I think that in the context of the moment I. think he won't bother to try. And that's the shortest answer I can give you. Okay okay. Henry care from Nashville asks is John Bolton correct? Did the dims blow the impeachment? Absolutely they blew the impeachment. If their goal was to remove Donald Trump from office that the only way you can remove somebody from office to have the consent of the other party, but from the moment that the Ukraine Gate for lack of a better phrase came out, it was clear that democratic can be manager's house. We're going to have a rush to judgment to get this out the doors quickly as possible and to make no serious attempt to persuade Republicans that their leader was crooked or criminal enough to remove from office so absolutely. It was botched if the. Was To actually Donald Trump in office. Okay and Ellie will give you this one last because I'm biased. I know your answer already and I.

"Brooks and Brianna Taylor we still waiting for them to arrest the cops who killed. Brianna Taylor were still waiting for justice for racial. Brooks were happy that today. Finally, the grand jury charged them Michael's. Who are the people who lynched? Right, but that's the black twitter conversation on white twitter. It's all about these statutes in the media. It's all about these statues I guess lots of meteoroid straight, and in the past week and a half I've been asked to write an article on gone with the wind which. I've been asked to come on shows like this one is talking about statues and get better because I have some. You know I like to talk about George Thomas Union general was also from Virginia. WHO has a statue? You'd give me a straight up history lesson. I get called on to talk about these things. Not One person has called me and asked me to come on show and talk about race Brooks, right so I. point out just to say like I agree that the message is being hijacked, but it's being hijacked by a media culture that. Statues being down and dragged around and spray painted like that's a good visual talking about. Is it important for? Is it not important at that point for someone to say? Hey, white people shut up. Stop taking this. Frank. Stop taking this moment away because if it is, you're not the first person I've got I've got a tally with one of my very best friends. who every Tom something else gets cancelled. She just marks another check and she says exactly what you say. She said that Amo people. That's your people. That's why people who are making these who are asking cancel patrol and shit like that and she says exactly the same thing you do, but is it not i? Mean I hate to say that? It's incumbent, but I do want to ask. Is it. Would it not be valuable or important for more people to say exactly what you've just said here to US tonight, which which would be when they go on to say stop I don't WanNa talk about that I. Don't want to write about that. Stop trying to take these things down because there's only a certain amount of political capital that was available there and it's being wasted. Is it not I mean? Are People really talking about the systemic changes that are necessary, or are they talking about? Andrew Jackson's statue, and does that not concern you And how do we stop people from doing that? Like I said I. Feel like I'm black sweater and blackout Asians with black voices. There's a whole ongoing continuous conversation about what can be done about police brutality, it says conversation that Cory Booker and Kamala Harris for having a conversation that happens when we talk about Clean Castro's police conversation that a lot of people are trying to have Democratic Party to like get them to to to. Put a little more more teeth into their bills. The Democratic Party voted today to block maybe the most. Centrist proposal that Republicans have ever put on the floor of the US Senate when it comes to police reform because they want this to be a campaign issue in the fall. How are we supposed to take this conversation? Seriously? I mean I listen I. I I don't. It's not my place I'm going to jump in and give my opinion anyway. I happen to agree with that there, but there's also. They're also elite, two black senators on the democratic side and I. I'm not sure what their position was. I didn't follow up on that really myself, but yeah. Basically a little bit of progress is better than no progress at all. Not just a bit of a more roast. Is it not just a bit more racism La for white people to pretend that they know better how to handle this situation right now. Than than black people, white people know better and white people have decided that the best way to do. This is to change the name of these towns to change the names of the get rid of these statues, etc, and it's just it's more. It's more racism to act as if the white people know how to handle this better than black people who are saying no. Let's talk about Reshad Brooks. Let's talk about Brianna Taylor. That's continue to talk about George Floyd. Let's continue to talk about reforming polices police departments. Doesn't someone need to say? Stop being stopped acting like you know better. Okay so two points one. I agree with you. Yes, and I do feel like people are trying to do that, but my second point is that the reason why the difficult dance Klaas that we need the election. Like, we black people are a vocal minority, but we are still fundamentally on minority. We cannot get popular chance. The allies are hurting the cause they. Look I. I spent a I think. Michael Harry from the root, said that describing me that I spend most of my time, excoriating Democrats and a little bit of my time making fun of Republicans like I. Like. Sounds like me. Agree like I I need Democrats to do better than they are I need White Democrats do better than they are right now, but I can't deny the fact that. I've made this point before I've I've been writing publicly rioting writing the public facing way since two thousand eight. There is no article that I've written since two thousand eight about police brutality that I can not essentially cut paste chase name of the black victim changed name of the White Cop and put it up tomorrow, and you think it's the same article, right? You think you think it's a new article like the this has been a long term problem in the African American community. It's a long term thing that we have. We have rallied about, and this moment is the most multi racial multi ethnic moment ever. On this issue. I mean we haven't seen a multi ethnic group Rally for Civil Rights on the scale since the sixties. So you have to find a way. I, think what blackmore trying to do right now. Black leaders are trying to do like Alicia Garza who's actually founder of black lives. Matter right or we're trying to do is find a way to merge the ally ship, which isn't always helpful as you point out clay into something that can still have the kind of positive long lasting change in the last point that I'll make. Is that I? I don't think that you see remember. We just had an election yesterday and progressives in new. York, state did very well and I. Don't think you see that you know. We elected three black people for Congress in your to of openly gay I. Don't think you see this kind of progressive congressional primary victories that we saw without everything's been happening over the past couple of weeks. So I think there is the movement is moving in the right direction, but yeah, you're right, not not all ally ship is the best ally ship right now. Well I would I will I will point out that the district's where more progressive candidates one we're blue districts already, and very well may just be.

"The Electoral College wanted a different type of leader. And they have seen over the last two months that he's not that type of leader. He can't do it and I think it's going to be very difficult for him to win. Those people back using the old playbook given the times and the concerns we have. So the divide and conquer thing, it may be what he doubles down on then and as Ben just just told us we didn't know beforehand. Four hundred National Guard troops have been called out in DC to guard some of these monuments certainly. We are at a time right now. In this country and have been for the last few weeks where Race is a hot topic. Equality is a hot topic It's gotten a lot of attention that I think it's needed for years and years but it has allowed in some ways for the president to double down on his. Divisive, And, so, what do you think happens with this? You're the one who informed me of it so I'll let you talk about it I. The these new National Guard troops that are out to protect confederate monuments I guess other monuments also in D. C.. is it is really. Do you think it's really being done by the President? In order to protect monuments, or do you think it's being done to to? Protect his his standing with his base. I think the past couple of days have been. Really bad for not just the president, but the entire Republican Party when it comes to this issue that no. In the past several years Klay as you know and really going back decades, Republicans conservatives and their organizations have done an enormous amount of work fundraising off of wrapping the flag around themselves like bill, the butcher or something like that and raising a heck of a lot of money. As the defenders of the American founding you know all of these leftists want to tear these people down rhetorically. At least we're going to stand with them once they raise that money, then use it to argue for lower tax rates, and for less regulation for large businesses and other things here and there, but really when it comes to the cultural fight about history. They've ceded the turf to a left that. Has Much more in common with the sixteen nineteen project, and you of American history is being. Fundamentally corrupted by the sin of slavery and everything else attendant with it. Last night in Madison we saw the the. Decapitation of a union soldier and anti slavery worker, his statue was hauled through the street and thrown in the lake We saw the bringing down of a progressive feminist statue. We saw an openly gay democratic state senator attacked in the street for filming some of the protesters. And Beaten by eight to ten of them. He ended up in the hospital. The point is this is stuff that's out of control and I think that regardless of whether these cities are run by Democrats or not, they are. This redounds to a situation where a president who has talked so much about law and order is viewed as being incapable of making that happen I. think that he's going to have to take significant steps in the coming weeks to change that narrative I think that Republican politicians very few of them have been willing to stand with him on this point I think they're all pretty nervous about what could happen. But I. Think they're going to have to make a choice here because you can't run as the Party of law and order, and then have people who care about them, witness, these very statues of these founders, who they respect regardless of their sins, being torn down, and have that be something that happened from their perspective on your watch. And Care about statues. I. Care about explain that Claire. Just dig into that a little bit more so i. know what you mean by that. Look if. If there is a statue that in some of these protests gets torn down. That shouldn't be and we can debate should or shouldn't I tend to think for instance that ulysses s Graham is a hero is a good guy, is a guy who's who has an interesting and important history or role to play in American history. Was He perfect note? Did he own slaves? Yes. The free that sleep. Yes, that's an important part of stories. I think, but my my point is I think grants again. God I would not have torn down grant statue, but you know what we can rebuild grant statue. I would. I would be willing to do Tabula Rasa right turmoil, Dell, and then we can rebuild the ones that we want in a pluralistic society because the thing is, is that so many of these statues were created or rected or supported? Back during a time when people who look like me didn't get a vote didn't get a say. Did they have an opinion to an opportunity to express our opinion on who should be honored on in our country in our states in our communities right so now that we? Are living in a more pluralistic society. Where everybody gets a vote, a voice a chance to voice their opinion. Let's not knock down whatever you down, and we can all come together as a nation and bigger out cooler, going to redirect right, but that would that pluralistic society really at this point allow anyone statute to be up? I mean yes, we are allowing, but if we're allowing people to veto. If. We're allowing any anyone. Veto anyone then. We. GonNa find that. But I guess I'm just I'm trying to figure. I've heard over the last week or so. People saying that George Washington should not be memorialized in statues. Thomas. Jefferson should not be Mount Rushmore should be reconsidered. Teddy Roosevelt was was. was a colonialist I mean. We we do live in a society where every voice gets amplified so much that do you not worry that? If we sort of cleared everything and started from from scratch? No one would ever agree that anyone deserved. Adult adulation like that no and the reason why? I I come at this from the from the position of always being a minority in society like the. The the fact is that just because there is a small group of people saying one thing that doesn't mean that holds true for the majority of the country, and it doesn't mean that true for majority of the minority that you're talking about right, so yeah. But. It's still making a lot of people I mean Jimmy. Kimmel has been in the news a lot this week because he had. He's been called out for some black face he did in sketches back in the late ninety s early, two thousands Do you think that that is a fair? Criticism to to to have of him to dig that up from from way back. Do you think that his show would be cancelled? Or do you think that that's just a small minority of voices who are calling for that? GonNa. Try to answer them all. But it does. My and it's because I disagree with the premise of the question, right? Is it better to dig that up. That's it's. It's white. People who today or yesterday figured out that Jimmy Kimmel black face back of day black I'm not disagreeing with that black people. Black people been talking about how maybe Jimmy Kimmel's Whiteface was made him not the best spokesperson for some of the racial and social justice issues that he has. Spoken about black, evil been knew about Tina. fey Is. History of putting black face on her show and thirty rock black people been there about aunt Jemima being racist. We been knew about Uncle Ben. Being a racist caricature like our issues that black people have talked about or a while the difference. Doesn't want the dip doesn't affect things though to take inches off of off of the box. Does that improve does that? Is that an improvement in your? I don't think I should have a racist type. Stare me in the face every time I go into the painting. I think so no brainers. The difference in this moment is that white people for the first time in a lot of these situations are noticing some of the racial problems that black people have been talking about an act of agitating about for some time. So, what do we do that right? So that's to my first your first part of the question like I. Do not think it is unfair to Jimmy Kimmel to point out some crap that Jimmy Kimmel actually. Nobody lie and Jimmy Kimmel like he did that now. How do we go forward? Well? One of the things that we have seen in one of the things that can the majority of black people, the majority of people color tend to coalesce around. Is that okay? Understand what you did wrong? Understand why it was wrong. Apologize and before. Jimmy Kimmel can apologize in move fourteen vacant. Apologize before we can do the right think. Uncle Ben can be changed into Peter. Parker's uncle bed with great rice comes great responsibility. We can do this. It's not hard..

"Bringing back people like Brad Step. Corio dowse keys just see sense of let's Assembly old team again and I suspect that in reality he's much more of an organizer. An the data guy which is known as except Vin rally refresh that we all know that Kushner. Who runs this? Really is the president the president this all campaigns reflect the candidate, but the trump campaign like the trump organization before it really isn't expression of one man's personality and one man's well, and other people trying shape, but he really is his own campaign in some. If he's if it's his will, then what that image of him getting off? Marine, one say la. The IT got turned into a mean a lot, but I mean. Do you think that. Do you think that he felt? His numbers I mean he hasn't believed the polls obviously for a hot second when they don't when they don't show what he wants them to show, but there was definitely a difference about the way about his mood and his way he carried himself when he got off Marine One. You saw that video I'm assuming. Of course. I look, there's a thirst on my side of the aisle for trump to be said. This man has caused so much pain. To so many people so many people who you know don't look like him. Don't have as you know. Why aren't mail Art Straight? He's anybody looks like him actually. Talk. He's caused so much pain to so many people any seems to enjoy doing it right. He seems to be having fun. All the time I think that's fair. Do you think he enjoys hurting people, or do you think he enjoys pumping absolutely? Well that's all that's different thing, but I absolutely think. Oh, come on, now I actively I i. honestly think that this person is psychopath who enjoys other people's suffering and I will die on else. That's not Michael. Come on. Let. Him Die on the hill. I agree with you. Come on. Your points finish. The because of that feeling. I think there is a feeling on the left that way. He is sad. Things are going well, and so that means that that moment of him seaney all depressed and sad face. As he got off the as off the helicopter that made people feel like. Hey, this is happening. Some actually losing I can tell look how sad he is. And I and I push back against that I. Am I am worried about that I'm worried about how I am worried about the need. I think we have for trump to be sad. Because just because the man is sad doesn't mean that he's losing and I think Henry. while. You know while saying that. Things don't look great for trump right now. It's important to make a distinction between his support which has always been around this level versus enthusiasm of I don't think there's actually good evidence that his enthusiasm is. Way is waning. You know trump has an incredibly dedicated group of supporters that group of supporters shows up to boat. That group of supporters is over represented in the Electoral College to think that this man is beatable or wounded. Because some K pop fans ruined is Kobe. Rally I think is is the wrong lesson to take from this, and so I worry about the as as you put. I worry about the naming of sad trump. That's not the point. The point is to beat him in an election and nothing that help it happen. It's also a helps Democrats. Beat trump in an election. that. Right about that for a slightly different reason, which is that? What people who want trump to lose should want. Is that face in November? The problem is that he has that face now, and that's a recognition perhaps of the reality, which which Henry was laying out. I think the biggest support for or help for the left in this election is the Hubris of the trump campaign and operation, which having defied the odds so many times before. You know is frequently of the mind that you know. Even if the odds say this, oh, that's ridiculous. You know that we don't believe those numbers It would be better for the left if that was still the attitude that they have but I think that right now. The attitude is much more awareness that they are coming. They're going to have to dig out of a hole that they're going to have to spend all of that money that they have amassed in smart ways. That, they are going to have to force Joe Biden out of the basement and onto the field Because until they have that I think that what we've learned is that he has been. Unable to define Joe Biden as being a lackluster. or or slow candidate in the way that he would like to. Well. That's that's you're headed exactly where I wanted to go, Henry I I wanted to ask if in his mind as he walked out of that Marine One helicopter was Oh. CRAP, that didn't go the way that I wanted it to go. That didn't go the way that I hoped it would go if he had that sadness in that moment. Is He capable? Of Making Change mid course do you think that something? been hit the nail on the head. As far as I'm concerned. He has really gone off gut instinct and fallen into success in some ways time and time again over the past three years four years. If you count twenty sixteen. Is He capable of making the changes that might be necessary now that he realizes Oh crap. What I thought was going to work may not be working. No I think he is not, he is capable. Is Capable of shifting issues and shifting emphasis as he sees reactions, or he sees opportunity so shifting from Biden is not up to the job to biden as weak on China or the Democrats on immigration. He certainly capable of that, but he really needs knows only one political speed, and that is divide and conquer. He believes that by. Creating sharply divisive messages he riles up support and then he can win. That's basically what he's been doing for five years and I think particularly with covert and floyd murder that. A people in the middle, the people he needed to get in order to win..

Rejoinder sinecure who I'm lost. Let's let's talk. Let's let's talk about somebody who doesn't know what those two main either because Asher as hell don't Let's go back to this topic that we were we did start the week out out with and I was going to start the episode with that I got sidetracked here. Yeah, trump's rallies been. You mentioned him in a minute ago? You said something about how you know. It seems like every time something comes up. It's going to be. The thing that that brings down the presidency or you said something to that effect. There has there has seemed to be consistency. Over the past three years that nothing he does seems to affect the enthusiasm of his base right, but there was a little bit of. A. Downturn in enthusiasm, last Saturday at his rally and Tulsa. Whose fault was that? Is that because the Tigers and Some, other people on social, media! Sucked up all his reservations, the the trump campaign says that's not the case, but I would think they would grab onto that excuse because the alternative is, people are worried about corona virus and didn't WanNa. Come or his enthusiasm is actually down. which do you think it was been? So I I think it was kind of everything I mean. I think that there was a a little bit of a tock sort of trolling factor but in terms of the reporting that we've seen that actually digs into it. That seems to have been a little bit of a sideshow i. do think that one of the things I noticed because I get a about. You know I'm. I'm not telling you that I'm an important person, but the Donald Trump campaign emails me about twelve times a day and the Joe Biden. Out. Brag about that. So, they're always asking for my interest. I mean it's amazing. But. One of the things that you do notice is that they were pushing this rally very hard and they made it very easy to sign up. You could have signed up basically with two clicks, and that means that I think there were a lot of folks signing up just out of some expression of support, even if they weren't from near there and had no intention of going I also think it was a huge mistake on their part to hold this whole thing in an indoor arena, there's a big psychological effect at this moment on the difference between being indoors and being outdoors I was at the indoor arena in South Carolina where he had his last big right before that South Carolina. Vote that obviously. started the Biden comeback on led to his nomination and. Being there there was a crowd inside the stadium of I would say about Twelve thousand or so, and then outside you know maybe another couple of thousand it was it was a crowd that was I think fairly Of of his approach this time around you know if you had less than half of that I would say the the problem is. I don't think you can necessarily extrapolate from that and I don't think it's all that significant the scheme of things. He seemed a lot more on point when he was speaking to these youngsters at the turning point conference in Phoenix the other day. Seemed a lot more. And a little bit more of himself, but he thrives on this stuff. He really needs it. In order to have any thrives on the enthusiasm right. He thrives on the crowd. Doesn't have the crowd like the difference between someone who's a caffeine addict when they don't have their morning coffee, or they're red bull, or half you when he doesn't have that, he gets very lacklustre very quickly, and I think that this was as much a an effort on the part of the campaign to inject some energy in a candidate who's been frustrated by confronting some real challenges as a president in terms of the last couple of weeks with a little bit of energy. It didn't work in Tulsa. They'll have to find ways to make it work going forward. Henry! What do you think is the reason that he didn't have that turnout? I think one of the big things was just a huge mistake with the campaign and setting expectations that one of the first things I learned as a aspiring teenage political activists is always have a crowd that is larger than your space, so if you're gonNA. Reserve a nineteen thousand seat arena. You'd better Dr Welby sure you can fill up and I think that they shouldn't. Everybody has in the past right he has been. Able to fill those but he hasn't had. It happened after the rumors and I think first of all they massively overestimated the ability of people or the willingness of people to go indoors in order to hear him speak, and I think that they had massively mis-read. Watt those supposed million RSVP's actually met. You know clearly has been mentioned. There was not a hard commitment to actually attend on behalf of many of them, and I think part of it was. An attempt to manage as Vincent the. Candidate who needed is morning jolt of coffee, but the way they did. It ended up. Grading a big embarrassment. You? Don't you really don't think there's any indication that his support is waning or that? People are less enthusiastic I mean. I know we don't trust polls implicitly, but the New York Times upshot this morning I think had him at thirty in the Mid Thirties in support and Joe Biden at fifty percent nationwide. There is a lower level of enthusiasm for the president. Right now is they're not no. It does lower level of support. But that what we're talking about? His enthusiasm among his base is base. Isn't that much smaller? What he's doing is losing the people who weren't likely to come to these rallies anyway. The sort of casual supporter of trump and I think he looks very bad for re election right now. I don't think there's any way to read. The date of that are coming out in the thing that a disaster for the president is much likelier than a victory, but that shooting kids Brad, Pascall. A, dead man walking. Out Not Convinced Brad Pascal has really been in charge of this campaign for quite some time you read our local people who are following this detail and they said that the real person charged strategy aspects of the campaign is jared as can see..
"five dollars" Discussed on How The Heck Are We Gonna Get Along
"You can rest assured that there are plenty of career or a civil service non political appointee. Appointee attorneys, who, if the trump administration is being investigated or if the trump organization is being investigated, are Wellin- possession of facts that if the investigations were being politically with how would have both the motive in the means to easily leak it to the press? So this is why well so is that really the way you want your the US? Attorney's Office to work I. Mean just because anyone. There anyone who thinks that's not how attorneys work is hopelessly naive. Yet, but don't they usually put a US attorney in the US? Attorney's position usually filled with someone who's been a prosecutor I mean you're not going to point me to that role or Elliott's not an turning. I I wasn't attorney once I'm not an attorney now. The fact is I don't follow. who gets a pointed as US attorneys and I. Haven't made that my career in looking at the past. Career, prospect or client has career A. Of people who end up being appointed to US attorney, I do think that if you think that the trump organization is being investigated by St N. Y. that you will likely find out that a either. That's true and things are going to proceed, or if they weren't going to proceed, you would find out about it. Another way to jump to the conclusion without evidence is something that I find very distasteful. So Henry. Do you think that the prosecution? The investigation that we know is happening on answer originally think that goes forward regardless of this. I think that it will go forward regardless of this move. If the investigation continues to bear fruit, that law could potentially have been broken the other thing is that I have not heard anyone. Tell me that there are statutes of limitation that are being run up against that somehow if Rudy Giuliani did violate a law that the delay of a investigation from July until January when Joe Biden would be able to appoint his own us. Attorney would somehow be materially damaging to the course of justice. It may be materially damaging to. To the attempt to politically attack the president, because that would be timed after the election, but if concern is the rule of law, no one's told me that there's any statute of limitation that Rudy Giuliani can escape or somebody under investigation can escape until January their Scott free again. The question is is this politics that you're concerned about? Not You, Ellie, but the people who are talking about this more generally, or is this the rule of law? I don't see how the rule of law is being disturbed. One iota by what's going law. been. Well I don't know if he wants to respond to that, but I was going to ask as sort of a broader question about this, which is the? We I do think that the the there are a lot of little interesting moments that we've learned about in the trump administration where we think something really significant is happening. That's going to. Bear fruit or have some deep ramifications as to the future of his presidency, and my feeling is that most of the time that turns out not to be true, and that within just a very brief say three or four days. We have forgotten the moment in question. The beginning of this week. We were talking about his. Terrible turnout in Tulsa, and we're getting to that, don't you and And and you know and we were, and we've been talking about a number of other. You know this this sort of sarcastic line. That may not be sarcasm about testing in the like. His frustrations with dealing with. A situation that he sold himself to voters as being exactly the kind of person handle in terms of authority and law and order, and now just this evening We're learning that the National Guard is deploying four hundred troops. In Washington DC to defend various monuments, potentially setting up clashes with protest groups i. just kind of feel like in this presidency this this is an interesting moment in the sense that you know the firing or the resignation of Berman. It's something that. Have Future. Ramifications I. Don't think we can say that at the moment, but I do think that this is one of those situations where There's so many things happening that we have to try to pick out which is the one that is most important, and I didn't even mention John Bolton in that sentence. Listen. This is it's like drinking from a fire hose? Sometimes on this podcast because there's so many things to talk about, I definitely want to get to that, but Elliott. WanNa. Let you have the last word on on this. Justice Department discussion. If there's anything you wanted to respond to with from Henry or been Larry joined, and only I. Only throw this out here. In the spirit of this odd chasm, the spirit of let's all get along since Ben brought up one about as with Eric. I. Do not see how the trump administration we cannot get ourselves to the point where we realized that the Department of Justice has to be de-politicized. Wherever, you think about the politics of whatever you whether whether you're left right or centre? I think we can clearly see that. Having the Justice Department be just another political appointee like the EPA director or the Secretary of Energy does. Not Real damage the law which I think it does then certainly perception damage to the wall, having a situation where look, the constitution is relatively relatively clear here. The president gets the point the his cabinet right, but we could by statutes say that once appointed the Attorney General Serbs six years and can't be fired right like we. We can do that by statute. Having statue where the where the attorney general was not subject to the political whims of the president would be a good thing, and it's a lesson that we could learn. After Richard Nixon fired his way into Robert. Folk so in the spirit of getting along I would hope or after John F.. Kennedy hired his brother right. Let's talk about what? Everybody's doing all in there. Just two slightly back against that, my concern with that would be that what we would end up with is a lot of people who look like they are. Elite trustworthy. Stand up. Righteous Citizens to occupy the office, and that gives you someone like James Comey. Who you know whatever you think of him. In the in the current context is trump critic in my view in the twenty sixteen period in his handling of the Hillary Clinton investigation virtually every decision he made, you can make a stronger argument for the opposite you know just at every stage, and in ways that both would have potentially helped her or hurt her with. The danger with those kinds of things is that you end up with someone who satisfies the elite sinecure of of Washington without necessarily being someone who can actually serve the country and the best way, but here's the thing. It's kind of. You're damned if you do damned if you don't. Do, you want the partisan. Who's going to defend the person in the White House and looked their interest..

"I know that they've the public statement from Kerry? Koubek and the Justice Department is that that did not play a role. In Attorney, general bars decision to abruptly fire him. I don't know that that's a position that a lot of people in New York on the right side of the spectrum in the legal community believe. That to defy going along with something that seems to be a pretty basic thing to just sort of tell built blasios that he needs to enforce the law equally when it comes to these communities as opposed to engaging in what I believe, it's been a systemic approach to targeting these communities as if they're the worst offenders, maybe they are. Maybe they aren't, but it smacks of antisemitism in a way that is I, think really toxic and awful, and I think that there was pressure politically to make a statement. To sort of brush back against these restrictions that had been seemingly targeted against a religious community, and he clearly didn't go along with that and very quickly after that. Follow this decision I. It's hard for me to believe the two things aren't connected. Okay, so let me. Get in here. I just want to make sure I wanna get you in here. Elliott but I WANNA. I WanNa make followed that also been so you're you you're. Correct me if I'm getting it wrong. Your position or your your theory is that there might there must have been sort of connection between his unwillingness to sign onto this letter and his sudden removal from the position. that it that it just seems to, it just seems to close in approximation and the fact that they had spent a day basically arguing about it. And with him, saying no and the top sort of flight insistent. Yes, to me. That was just kind of I. It's the type of thing that's a last straw if you're already irritated with somebody. It seems like if you're going if you're going, make a jump like that to say that it must have been this then. It's also not a big leap. If you're willing to make that assumption, it's also not a big leap for people on the left to say. It really seems as if though it probably had something to do with the fact that he prosecuted. Michael Cohen and that he was investigating Rudy Giuliani. I mean. Is it. To be able to make those two also I think I think it's certainly possible to be all of the above. It's just in this case the fact that they had this dispute apparently and. The reporting seems to be pretty solid. That was ongoing on the eve of his dismissal. That you know, the the thing that seems to happen with this administration is that there's always kind of a last straw dispute. There were certainly one in the instance of John Bolton there was there's been. Instances of a lot of other people who've been dismissed and I think in this case you know. Maybe they were already irritated with him at things that he was doing, but I think this smacks last straw dispute just as that's my own personal opinion without any additional information other than what Wall Street. Hop in here. What are your thoughts? I? Just reject the notion that I'm supposed to treat bill bar and this administration with good faith, right? Because, they have not done a single thing to earn it, and I'm not required to wake up every day like a newborn babe. Who looks at the world as if it is new, it is not new bill bar has not done a single thing to earn one Scintilla of my trust. He auditioned for this job promising that he would essentially end the molar investigation, which he then did, and then lied about it, and misled the public about what the more investigation was really about. He has not for one moment of his tenure acted like an impartial of a lawyer and instead acted like trump's lawyer. For the entire time. This is the second time during the trump administration where they have fired the head of Sdn wide, which is significant, because Suny has jurisdiction over trump's business and his family business, and that's why. Why the IMF does suggest the the the thought is that there was something shady going on here and let's not forget finally that the only reason why Jack Berman had this job is because trump refused to points a head for the s for the ESPN. Why after he fired pre Bra again, not trying to kneecap the office that is in charge of getting his personal business. I'm not required to forget all of that. I don't required required to fire I. DON'T I? Don't think you're required to forget any of that. Of course not I mean. I didn't take air colder seriously when he was of course. The last Attorney General held in contempt of Congress for refusing to testify not. Avoiding and defying subpoenas, you know that we're com- completely based in factual reporting, regarding the fast and furious program. I mean I. Don't think that any Republican took him seriously as attorney general. I. Don't see why any some who's on. The left would take a bill bar seriously as attorney general. We're in a divided situation right now I don't think that that's going to change anytime soon. Elliott don't don't. Is there not something to be said for the fact that they replacement? That's that's the person who's GonNa. Take a Berman's place in New York Audrey Strauss. Has Been his deputy and is not necessarily I mean some people have claimed that she might actually be tougher on the trump administration if if his goal was truly and I know I know when someone's going to help me with the name, but I'm not the initial plan. To appoint Jay. Clayton from New Jersey right as the as the interim. Or the new. Attorney US Attorney Sdn y but. If if bill bar stepped back and said okay, we'll follow the. We'll follow the law audrey. Strauss will take over Audrey Strauss's someone who's been there for a long time and is probably likely not going to take it easy on Donald Trump in any way or take it easy on his friends. Is, they're not reason to at least concede that perhaps bill bar. Is playing by the rules right there actually I think you said when you I think you said it right in your setup for the question bill bar step back and decided to follow the law. Trying to be unbiased, do it. Wasn't as I call first call was support Jay. Clayton, who is trump's golfing buddy to had again? The the body that has original jurisdiction over trump's businesses right now afterglow up into space, and that that has everything to do with Berman's backbone in this situation, not bars. Wants Berman stood up to bar bar was forced into as you put it following the law following the succession plan something that the trump administration has regularly tried to avoid to put this deputy career civil servant in his in in Berman's place. Strauss seems like a good i. I in why? Henry, why would why would? Why would the president or the attorney general want to appoint someone who has never been a prosecutor before to to that role? Someone who was a golfing buddy of the president's but someone who's not been in a position like that all what would be the motivation behind that I? Really don't know what the motivation would be on that, but I do think the question is in a district like the southern district of New York..

"Regularly scheduled programing with a multi partisan panel to answer questions like where is president trump's focus at the moment. What exactly is bill bar up to and who might be the next casualty in the current wave of culture cancellations? Limassol returns to the pod this week. He's a frequent contributor on networks like MSNBC AND CNBC and he's the justice correspondent for the Nation Henry Olsen is an author and a columnist for the Washington Post and been dominant is a political contributor for multiple TV networks and the publisher of the federalist. They're here to help us answer those questions, and hopefully also answer. How the heck are! We GonNA get along. How Everyone Ellie Henry, been. Harry all this evening. Air Conditioning, we. You're right. Where are you right now? Ali I'm in Westchester which is usually by but. My. Office has air conditioned wheeler. Well I am I. It was I was just telling the producers a little bit ago, it was like in the sixties and seventies last week, and it is ninety eight ninety seven today, and the humidity is like walking through superior. It's awful and been you're in DC yeah. yes, and we. We're actually okay. Today I'm I'm sure that Henry's here as well but. It's actually pretty nice outside. Elliott just would tell you. I noticed that you were writing about Naomi row. You should You should think Senator Josh Holly, for the fact that she will never be a supreme court nominee. Don't have anything to worry about on that front. Are you sure about? What happened? What happened Ellie? Naomi just a dinner thing today. On the. Bill Bar. Michael Flynn saying at her opinion is just it's. It's classic row it's. I I've I've had known as the most dangerous justice that trump's appointed since she got her nomination, today was just another another day. Will Henry can yes so feel me and what happened? What was her reasoning behind throwing this out because I have to admit I'll just throw it out here right now. I have turned the TV news off because it's just driving me crazy, so read a little bit about it, but. Been Tell me what happened with this? Why did why did she determined that? This case could be thrown out? I'm not actually surprised by her. Decision but it's one of these systems. One of the prompts with this situation is. You're faced with a situation where? Who would you ask in the Department of Justice as a substitute? Try this case given their. Their attitude is the way that it is I'm not that surprised, but I am wondering if Sullivan will find a different way to sort of extend this out a little bit. Maybe kick the can and see if they have somebody different a few months from now to continue this the politics of this is pretty intense. Might take claims that the real issue with this is that it's an unprecedented move where she's issued a decision about how judge Sullivan has to rule on his motion before Judge Sullivan rules on his motion. Right like that. That's a lot of the the the the crazy comes in for me that there's an argument I wouldn't agree with it. There's an argument that Judge Sullivan could've refused the motion to dismiss essentially, and then row could have come over the top and set like actually. No, you have to like Brantley there. Lots of different ways. There's lots of different ways. This could have been skin but for her. To have this decision before Sullivan is even allowed to make his ruling on his motion that he simply asked at this point for more briefing and more evidence from that's. That's the that's the. That's the only row special sauce. Right that that's the different thing about trump judges from you know regular Republican judges that I would generally disagree with, but but as I said you should, you should write a thank you note to Josh. Holly because he you know in his process of of of holding her up during confirmation, you know gotten admission of her from her that she is personally pro choice and and doesn't think has opinions on abortion that are not in line. With the base of the Party and that means that she'll never be a Republican nominee this court, so you should be grateful for that. Does, is it? Is it just a Naomi row issue though I mean. Henry is the the Justice Department in general has had quite a week. It's not just this Michael Flynn case, but but the this Friday night massacre on on last. Friday I don't know if we're calling it a firing, a a pressuring to resign Irma from the from the. Federal Attorney in the Southern District of New York. What what exactly is going on at the justice? Department right now. It seems as if though there really aren't again. own my bias. I'm on the left, but it seems as if there really are not many rules being followed There's not much order going on. What what's your take on? What happened on Friday with with Attorney General Bar. Henry. Announcing the resignation of Permanent York. Well And the these US attorney serve the at the pleasure of the president. You Know Bremen had no. Right to the job and Apparently there was some wires crosses to weather. He was going along with what. Attorney General are later made clear in his letter was ongoing discussions. but I. Don't think we know why he was fired. Because that's ultimately what did. but I just think there has been so much attempt to paint the president and his team lawless regardless of the facts that. I would take what was said. Without strong evidence with very big grain of salt. Do you think that? What do you think that the investigations that were being undertaken in the southern district? Do you think that some of the cases? Some of the the convictions that he? Achieved, in the southern district had anything to do with why the president was unhappy with him, and if so is that, is that a reason my point is i. don't think anybody knows I. Think there's a lot of people on the left who want to believe that, but I don't think anybody knows what the reason is i. think that we should generally presume good faith on behalf of people from both parties, unless demonstrated otherwise, but that doesn't seem to be a something that is on offer for people in. Straight I would I would just suggest is that I think that that decision on the part of Berman that back and forth the Wall Street Journal, reported about his unwillingness to sign onto that letter, criticizing Bill de Blasio for treating Orthodox, Jewish communities different than protesters I mean..
"Should our nonprofit take a stand on social justice issues. If we think it might alienate some donors. Oh topical questions Mad We can tell what's on people's minds and I'm glad that this is on people's minds because it's a really important question. I have an opinion and if you're gonNA guess what my opinion is, which is. Absolutely. So so there's tons of research, and and before we get too far. This is ab absolutely. Bring in a guest expert because this is the kind of lead to. This is the kind of thing where people who know way more about this than we do. But, but there's there's a ton of research out there and people in the nonprofit sector, probably more likely to believe it than people in the corporate sector are that. When you take a stand on social issues, you bring the people that are interested in what you've got to say much closer to you and the people that were never interested in you to begin with are not going to have their minds changed by you taking a stand on a particular social issue. I can talk about my time at three. Square I think I've probably told this story on the podcast before to. We got a handwritten note. A check for I think twenty five dollars on it and the handwritten note said. Here's twenty five dollars. I would like you to use this money to feed American citizens only. Hell I remember that we talked about. It's been two years. We talked about like that right, and and we had no hesitation at the food bank like I. You know I looked at it. I knew what I wanted to do I brought it to the executive or the CEO. I said Hey. This is what we got. This is what I WANNA do. And the blessing was absolutely. That's what you should ride. There was not even any discussion internally about. Let's not hurt her feelings, so we drafted a letter, which said that much your donation. However, we cannot restrict donations specifically to people who are American citizens, and that's it and we returned it back to her with that little note. There's a one hundred percent chance. She never gave another donation to the food bank again, but that was twenty five bucks right, so it was absolutely wasn't a really hard. We weren't selling our morals for a significantly amount at large amount of money was just a very well. And you and I both know that amount of money shouldn't matter. I know within a matter, but like we don't know this reader talks about alienating some or this. You know this person says they're alienating some donors. We don't know what size donors were talking about, but I still. That doesn't make a difference in my opinion. I just think. I would I would say my push pushback to that would be that. What donors are you alienating by? Not taking a stand because there's been a whole I I've been following all these sort of private facebook groups that have nonprofit professionals in groups with you know nonprofit executive directors all over the country that are talking about this and I would say if I were just roughly speaking. Ninety percent of people right now are putting out some statement because a it's so intertwined in every mission out their rates. Social Justice issues are at the core of those I think the key is making sure that it is. Not done in a sloppy manner or a an obligatory manner I. I don't know about you. Andy, but I've seen so many statements that come out that feel like people are doing it to check the box. Instead of actually it's core values. It's the way they work and I. Think People can see through that so I do think you have to be careful about that as an organization, so, but it comes back to your fundamental values. Your mission your how you? who you serve a to me, it feels it just feels like a even if it's a donor on the line like what about the donors who are waiting to see what you say? I think you gotta look at it from both lenses absolutely I mean and you have you make a good point about like especially right now. There's a lot of every corporate PR. Department has put out some sort of statement it says either black lives, matter or something close enough to that that they don't feel like they're actually going to put their foot in anything. They don't mean to put their foot in and and you can tell just by the way they're written whether or not they mean. Whether or not, it's like. I. Read Someplace recently that that saying we need to do better is about the same as hopes and prayers for gun violence like it, it just something that comes out of your mouth, and it means you have absolutely no intention of doing something about it. So when we talk about know in the nonprofit sector. Your your integrity is all you have, and you realize that your people are going to give to you because believe in your mission one hundred percent of the time and some of the other things, so there's there's other studies that are just recent. That are so interesting because they're tangential to this, not the same thing, but it's like if if you find out that there's a charity for that serves cats in a charity. This serves dogs and you're a dog person. You've always been a dog person. You give the dog person charity, and then you read a study or read something in the newspaper that says. The dog charity is. Seventy five percent effective and the cat charities ninety five percent effective. It doesn't matter your dog person. You're still giving to the dog charity, which means that the purpose that caused the reason that you're a nonprofit is always going to be much more important than the individual activities that you undertake and provided. You're not terrible now that you're not coming down on the wrong side of this thing. And if you if you do come down the wrong side of it out, you get what you deserve oh you do.

It was that like Oh yeah you now. You can see how many times throughout my story so I really the truth comes out how boring I am I on at least twenty times. It's very so you're GONNA get used to it. We should start doing like a counter in. I'm not used to it. It makes me feel very incompetent to be fair. I think it's psychological because for the first year that we told stories by the time Christine always told told her story when we both had day jobs. It was like eleven at night so I think I just still my brain thinks like Oh time to go to sleep. Tell me really soothing mm story not about murder before I get a path well here. It is anyway I apologize in advance for everyone maggots to watch me on finally someone else gets to witness actually sleepy Kinda a guy yeah okay so data so he is on the FBI's most wanted list. He later wrote that he never disguised his appearance during his crimes times because he wanted to be famous. That's a good guy that's rough. Well it worked and he was pretty quickly arrested in Atlanta and sent to jail five years later he was released on parole having been fully rehabilitated doubtful end of story the end. What are those the end? I wish got if every story ended like that. Story ended ended five minutes in and happily no murder to notable robberies rehabilitations all better yeah he married a woman named K had five children and felt so so change so radically changed. I radically believe believe him that he wrote a book and the book was called Metamorphosis of a criminal Oh my God in which he discussed his past life of crime and has changed ways he also began touring the country speaking about his reformed ways and how he the light and has changed to be a better person. I'd helped he was also very attractive and charming so he was just very good at like manipulating people into who thinking he was truthful when he told these kinds of stories he quickly gained the trust of his community he convinced America. That was a changed man to the point. Let's hear it to do the point was here. So do you remember this game. Show called to tell the truth. it's the show where three people attempt to convince panel of celebrity judges that they are the central central character who like either has weird occupation or has done something really wild and the other two are impostors so there's two actors and the actual the person and it's it's it's like from catch me. If you can like the guy the ACA yeah and so he'll be like oh I you know forged all these checks and then the other to try to convince no. I'm the one who did that is okay and they have to convince the judges and then the judge will vote on who they think is actually. It's all coming back yeah. It's I loved show personally anyway. He was on the show. Oh yeah could he win so three P okay did it so there are three people on the show. There's actually a version of on ABC now. I don't know as of like March or whenever we did the show but I haven't watched it. My favorite episode of to tell the truth is to tell the truth. I'm Edward Wayne Edwards. Oh reformed criminal okay. Yes Edwards was honest freaking show. The episode is on Youtube so I highly recommend watching it. It is Sensor Albert here. Could it be listening yeah. Click here to what she's getting. Everyone listening to just the Audio version is like Oh holy shit us my new normal because yeah oh yeah it's on Youtube. Please finish are upset. I because I want to tell you what he did before you watch it because it's so much more disturbing if oh shit after so half the panel voted for him they said actually they picked him because he seemed the least likely read like whitest this guy on the panel and so the least likely to be an ex con and the most all American seeming contestant so they thought oh they're trying to trick us. That's him because the other two was was like this like Italian swath they they were like oh he looks more like a criminal like it was very sensitive I mean what are we like the sixties what what yours is the sixties sixties. Okay thank. Maybe the seventy S I mean I think it was the seventy s at this point. Yes so interesting. There's been two different types of that. We know of two murderers on game shows because no no Kala Rodney Rodney alka Al Calla Al Calla yeah he was dating gamers on the Bait and game and he was a fucking psycho and he looked like he looked like someone I would not want other contestants. Were like yet. He was freaking cre- play backstage to however this guy was like so charming and all American that they were like well. There's no way he's incredible. Vote was ever a criminal how he'd really changed okay so he is on the show. He's doing this tour book tour like he's just this kind of American hero cut to a few years later surprise he's back in jail on arson charges and he kind of lived the rest of his life. like in and out of jail kept to himself but now we're we're GONNA super fast forward to two thousand nine. Okay Edwards has long been out of jail. He's in his seventy S. He's living back in Akron Ohio. One of his daughters April global asking April Bellagio Balasko the LAS blasios. Let's go with that. It sounds cool April. She's now a forty eight year. Old Mother of three. The kids are grown. She decides you know what I'm finally going to act on some nagging suspicions I have had my whole life though my dad and about my childhood will tyranny so this is what that other podcasts about like her journey in discovering all this and what happened and it's so well done but so April she eh she always knew growing up that something was off about her dad. She said he had an obsession with the Zodiac killer with murders to the point that he would like sit them down and make them come watch all of these videos and crime things really gruesome graphic stuff when they were like toddlers like force them to watch was like sickly fascinated fascinated the other weird thing is I would move the family from city to city every few months. They number stayed in the city for more than a couple of interest at a time. That's pretty interesting yeah. She knew something something was off but she had kind of repressed a lot of it didn't have a happy childhood whatsoever and so she had repressed a lot of it but overtime she just was like there's this nagging feeling. I'm living with breath. I kind of want to see if there's anything to this that I can yeah process so one day so what she does. She goes your members. Several of the small towns she lived in so she starts going back like she's like I know we lived there in nineteen seventy eight or whatever it may be in the small town in the fall so she goes back to like the news articles like archives from that fall of nineteen seventy eight and she starts realizing there are murders happening in those towns during during the time periods of they gotta live there got it. She stumbles upon a news report of a recently reopened cold-case and that was a cold case of the Wisconsin Wisconsin sweetheart murders which was a cold case in a town that she had lived in the town of called watertown Wisconsin and the murders had taken place in nineteen eighty so on Saturday night August Ninth Nineteen Eighty Timothy Hack and his girlfriend Kelly drew both nineteen disappeared after a wedding reception in town the families as reported them missing the following day and one of the largest searches in Wisconsin history was organized a few days after the disappearance police began to find disturbing things on the side of the road they found Kelly's pants which had been cut from ankle to groin they found pieces of rope strange pieces of yellow tubing and more bits of torn clothing thing but tubing freaks me out three months later squirrel hunters stumbled upon Kelly's body in the woods and Timothy's was one hundred feet away and Kelly had been raped and Timothy had been stabbed and strangled and after Kelly was assaulted she was also stabbed and strangled to death. Oh my God so leads went in all different directions. This was like horrific. This is a very small town. This was just so shocking and jarring it was like this young couple and very close closest commute close knit community as the years went by investigators had no answers. The case went cold the family's just kind of lived with like we're never going to find out what happened so that was in nineteen eighteen eighty so we're back in two thousand nine April is searching through the archives of all these places. She's lived and she stumbled upon this news report. Her blood runs cold when she realizes not only did they..
"five dollars" Discussed on And That's Why We Drink
"Let's let's try this. Remember that time I said we don't know what's going to come out of my mouth. Yes we're going to try that now because this is a story from a few months ago and I haven't haven't even tried reading the notes to fill myself in. Doesn't that sound good. Doesn't that sound like a really interesting ride. I hope this is the first episode and they're like wow. This is. Someone's first. There's Youtube episode. Oh God what is going on hi. We're in that's why we drink welcome to our podcast on TV. It's how do we explain. There's milkshakes and ghost lemons involved. There were milkshakes one point there was wine at one point in this to be milkshake facts. The remember that lasted eight episodes go back to the very early ones when we were as awkward as this video thing hope and there she sorry and you'll see what bulk facts were. It didn't work out. It's funny you can always tell who's new to the show because they say I have a fanatic fact for you and it's like Oh bets I ran into into episodes. You'll realize that that's a no go kaput all right so this is my live show from Wisconsin Ooh and I actually we just had our facebook live episode that we did this weekend last weekend. Yes feud few days ago and someone actually mentioned the story. I forgot that I'd covered it yeah. They like requested it yeah. They were like Oh. You should do this story and I was like Oh. I already have notes for that so I'm going to be that we're going to Salt Lake and clearly aren't prepared fully. We decided we would use some old notes that everyone has since forgotten about unless you're from Wisconsin yeah well. Was it madison listener Milwaukee. Here's the thing I can't tell you that I don't know Oh okay. I thought you meant you can't tell me for like oh no. I can't tell you because I didn't well I also you didn't know which one it was i. I didn't know which one wants to pick the random Wisconsin show could be it could be a mix and match also the shows. Were really small their true true if you have her. I'm sorry but one of those Wisconsin shows the shore. You flashed everyone right okay well. I thought that was GONNA be contained in the comedy club. Now what goes on Youtube stews on Youtube took apparently after the first Madison Show Oh God oh God and tell the story. It wasn't necessarily that you moon everyone's like you sunny. Everyone much worse Yeah Evoke Texan me the next morning and was like hey. I don't even like ten minutes before we left for the next day show and was like I'm so sorry. I don't really know how to tell you. This is really awkward and I was like what happened. She's GonNa quit I accidentally fired or I don't know and she was like so. You're wearing those leggings yesterday and you kind of had a camel toe and everyone could see it and i. I didn't know how to tell you and you guys just Kinda did the whole thing and nobody said anything and it was like she goes. I just wanted to let you know I like didn't want to tell you but in case you wanted to wear those leggings things again and again. Can you imagine being harassed an odd. I mean this is what happens. When Eva isn't around this would probably be a thousand times better? God imagine having to go tell my boss that they have a camel toe in front of four hundred people and so then the next day of course I'm like so fucking awkward that instead of being like okay just wear jeans and be normal. Guess what I did to half of you who came to the show yesterday you saw my sunnyside is like like you're so ashamed. You can't keep it in God you just have to keep talking about it and that's why it keeps happening here and lex emily to bring it up really a lot and yeah so here we are so so anyway. This is not the story of Christine's Campbell Tokes just got that would be quite a horror story though so here's a different one. This is a Krypton which apparently everyone there seemed to to already know so I did a good job in picking on part of Wisconsin good this is in the town of Rheinland. Okay Yeah Yeah Okay See. Doesn't this sound confident already. This is the story of the Hodak. ooh So this I remember being one of my favor Cryptos I've done I remember being wildly ridiculous so let's find out together excited. I was also sick during the show so I think I was in state so I'm not even gonna I mean between maybe that's why those liking also. The duct tape is falling. Do you guys Oh look at that. Change up here for for those who listening to audio the camera pointed at us was slowly just falling outing and so Christine had to readjust but I'm sure that will have to happen again okay the whole Dag of Rheinland Hodak is spelled H. O. D. G. in case you're interested and apparently it is known as quote the terror of the Pine Forest poorest of Northern Wisconsin Ooh so the story's main character which is something I literally wrote in these notes is a land surveyor named Eugene Shepherd Sheppard. Okay okay so far. I'm doing good protagonist so Eugene was born on March twenty second eighteen fifty four so he's an aries that's great and and he was born in Old Fort Howard which is now known as Green Bay and I'm sure everyone freaked out and we're also wearing a cheese ties Salako. Oh that was a good day. You're right. I was wearing a cheese bowtie and end and understand that it had to do sports so that was questionable. Now I just saw m's a packer fan like what's the packer I just wanted to. I just want my cheese Bowtie two his family moved to New London and he left school in sixth grade to work on his father's farm in his dad died when he was twelve so he ended up being hired on as a farmhand in other towns okay so by the time he was he was out of school. He was just working on farms at sixteen he became came a timber apprentice in the North Woods and he learned to be a timber cruiser which apparently is another phrase for land looker which is another phrase for for checking out land got it so he would apparently I wrote it down because I knew I'd forget if I ever went back to these notes. Thank you passed him so land looker they calculate the value of how much lumber is actually in an area based on how many trees were there so then go literally look at the land count all the trees and they say uh-huh you could get this much lumber out of it or this much timber out of it and that this much money you would make okay. That sounds like a cool job to job so in eighteen eighty two rheinlander oh so the town is not rheinland apparently surrender. I'm stupid. Kids start. I must have delayed are at some point editing this. This was the dumbest thing we've ever decide to to make video content and not say was you mean is currently the dumbest thing we've are ever doing. Utopia never do anything stupid ever again yeah. Let's hope so in eighteen eighty two rheinlander was looking for timber and lumber workers and Eugene moved there permanently so he moved to Rheinlander in eighteen ninety three he was working in the woods outside of Rylander and he comes across his first Ho Dag so in the near North newspaper reports and there are other stories that also reported on this. This is how the dog is described because I guess this made the papers. Why wasn't this is how the dog was described? It looks like it's quite a long description so bear with me but the more detail the better maybe okay maybe according to several articles the Hodak looks like and has a large head of a frog could start concert the grinning face of giant elephant a thick short legs a dragon's body the back of a dinosaur and a long tail with spears at the end. I'm not done before you make a comment. spikes all the way down its entire length of its body with a fistful of needle sharp pointed spears at the end of his tail fangs that would rival a sabertooth tiger and could rip out the belly of the biggest bear. Apparently it has horns that are growing from its temples with large fangs and green is that's nice pretty short black green hair. I don't know what makes it and its back is covered with spikes. It has tusks noodle sharp claws and it smells apparently like quote buzzard meat meet and skunk perfume favorite apparently it's known to breathe fire and smoke it eats water snakes oxen mud turtles and mainly only white bulldogs what that's not very nice. You know. We need a whiteboard so I can just sketch this. Wait a minute if we're talking visuals. That isn't genius idea gain we what are the what are the youtuber say put it in the comments. Oh yeah leave your comment below and then we'll put a cool little aero and then also humiliated subscribe. I am twenty seven. Okay okay like what you see. Okay which you don't finish that Senate until finish don't like what you see. Please just leave. Don't leave a comment because sticks and stones except the opposite of accept our bones are constantly being shattered excelled. You always hurt me turned us worse than any sort of mystical gem night so if you're not saying nice things just don't talk to us okay so everything he's described so fire reminds me of when Michael Scott is in that he's trying to describe like like the bottom of a plot to push with the face of an immigrant or something it sounds kind of a little Michael Scott Okay okay unlike apparently he's known to be quote a terrible brute with the strength of an ox the veracity of a bear and the cunning of Fox. Oh no no it was also rumoured that the hog was the resurrection of a Dead Oxen in the lumber industry which is what was an ox working in was he'll land looker and he was resurrected. That is the weirder part yeah. Maybe I misunderstood. He was called the fiercest strangest most terrifying terrifying monster ever to set this earth to let the Pearl it is going on here. It's very tough. In the chart sensationalized yellow journalism yellowed there it is there it is the others have described as reclusive woodland creature and misunderstood by many which is what I call Christine some interesting. I call you the first part Oh just a reclusive woodland the monster that eats bears or whatever cutting of Fox thank you sure skunk and the buzzard me thank you. I was hoping that was next. Put that on my tinder profile they say my tombstone door. I've already planned out your to anyway just say Christine. Did it hoops oops. I knew I shouldn't have done that. Okay so basically he's a seven foot long lizard like beast covered in spikes at the end of the day. I tried to just make it easy for everyone got a big weird lizard and maybe has an elephant face AH grinning ear so anyway that is Eugene apparently stumbled upon and to tell the tale so when Eugene gene and his workers came across this tag. They tried everything to capture it. I don't know why you don't try everything to get away. Get Away but apparently they tried to capture it. So when it fought back they ended up retaliating again this time bringing hunting dogs and guns they not just guns like rifles but the also brought squirt guns of poison water which I don't know how they found that first of all and the squirt gun so fast to tour exist back then. I don't know how it must have. Maybe I don't know super soaker. I don't think the super soaker they might just like the tiny little pistol ones just like like a like a clown gun all about that I would guess yeah. I imagine that's where the squirt gun came from like a photo gun. I also yeah I also like that. It's poisoned. He's in watertown like full of poison. It's like specifically poisoned walk. It's just alluded poison. Oh my so none of actually got the Hodak to stay away so they kept fighting thing and they ended up resorting to dynamite because the diluted poison wasn't enough and so they blew it up is blew up a picture. Uh of the remains of the Ho- Dag was actually sent to the media and released to the public L. My and three years later in eighteen ninety six eugene came across the Hodak I again in a totally different one so they thought they blew up the only one in existence it ended up being one of many. There's more to speak of MHM Eugene found one sleeping in a cave so keep finding these things specifically as nobody else seeing that she will flo liberty thirty so eugene rallies the other men together to help him drag it into a large pit to they can capture it. Let him take his his nap. Listen maybe sleeps as deep as me. He bigger probably get this so to do so to bring to drag him into the pit. They tied a sponge soaked in chloroform to a long pole and then fed it through the cave to get to him so he it'd be like pressed right up against his little luper has little nose and he'd breathe it in and he would just kind of fall asleep more unconscious. Wait okay. Oh Do you question why. Why would I ask a question? Let's hear it though I mean I've a lot but but where are they getting all of these that's one they got poisoned water. They got squirt guns in the eighteen ninety s if got chloroform like long Poles full of CCR sponge polls with chloroform quite elaborate I mean I guess we have a camera came rotate duct tape to a tripod so that was this was just their version potentially a loaf of bread somewhere involved so I mean I guess which judge but at this time the town rheinlander was trying to bring in more people and keep the town alive and Eugene decided I'm sorry so the town one to bring more people so and so they ended up to create tourism they created the loop. I don't know how to pronounce this Juanita or Omni one either. Let me look at it one Nita Oneida okay. Oh neither thank you we didn't have the audience screaming our faces like they usually do which we appreciate by the way we appreciate..

It's not like we make errors ever no not even a little bit what salt chalk pseudo over that scientists might all right. I don't have any updates. I think that's all I had. I'm just really there's a lot going on and I'm really excited about it so we're gonna a see how this youtube goes. Hopefully it goes all right yeah. I'm just GONNA pretend like the commission's do what we did with the when we started the podcast like oh just our moms are going to watch it.

There's always something new to avoid that we aren't aware of and one of those things is blue light from screens and devices that can cause I strain so I mean I'm on the computer pretty much twenty four seven it feels like at least and at a certain point you start to realize like you get headaches. I always notice my eyes. Start are to feel tired and even if you WANNA break in and watch them net flicks. Guess what you're just adding to it and that's something that I noticed I was really having a problem with and obviously it's twenty nineteen..
"five dollars" Discussed on News Talk KOKC 1520
"Yeah. Pharma pharmaceutical research and manufacturers of America. This is the big lobbying group said that they would they don't want this. Of course, they say, and it's because well, the reason we don't want this is because you're actually going to be harming consumers. Oh, please guys how you harm consumers. Most people will not pay what the price per pill is so it could technically be seventy five dollars per pill. But most people would play it would pay. No more than ten or fifteen bucks for script. Well, I think this actually forces companies to be honest about what they're charging. Absolutely. Isn't this isn't this a way of creating transparency in the medical industry? Yes. It's the same way you need your pedic's taken out how much they're gonna. 'cause I go to the hospital. Well, it all depends. Where's your insurance through because what you're charged if I have insurance different than if I didn't. It's all jacked up. You just can't call and get the price. Yeah. I think they're so used to being people in the pharmaceutical industry and medical industry general are so used to being protected by the system that's in place now and has been in place for a long time that they just don't like the idea of actually having to compete and actually having to be open with the consumer. Oh, yeah. Why would they want this to change? They're making billions of dollars because I would also think and there's nothing wrong with making that kind of money. But I would also think that a savvy business person would say well now, here's an opportunity to brag about let's take you know, the little blue pill versus another similar product. Wouldn't you see an opportunity to undercut your competition by advertising how much less you're charging per pill? Then this other company. Yes. Isn't there an opportunity there? My fear is then it's going.
