Interview With David S.

"When I group had to move our meetings online because of the coronavirus pandemic, I was concerned that the group might not hold together not everyone likes online meetings, and in fact, I've found that the attendance of the meetings has dropped a bit since we've had to go online. However, there have been some silver linings behind the clouds. There's been some positive benefits to join online and one of those being that I've been able. To meet our guest for this episode, David S, he's from the Casey Metro area, but a little too far away for our meeting place to attend our in person meetings. But since going online, he's been a regular and as I got to know a little bit about him, I wanted to know more. So today he's here and you will have the pleasure of getting to know him to Hello David welcome to a beyond belief. Thank you for inviting me do cardio podcast really looking forward to this. Oh, it's nice to have you here. So I guess you've listened to a couple of episodes. You kind of know what we do here. As I as I told you earlier, it'll be you sharing your story and an I'll be interrupting you with rude comments and. Along the way but It'd be interesting to know your background So maybe we can just follow our standard a formula a little bit. If you could go through your story, you know, when did you start drinking? You know when did interfere with your life? What was it like Dave? Before we get started, do have blind quest Joyce to be wearing pants. You do not have to wear pants. Pants. I'll. Be Right back. Okay. I started drinking Ashley late in life I was I I was raised. Without drinking the House I started drinking a little bit. But. It was a late. Late? Seventies. When I started drinking and I found out that it was magical. and. It took care of all my worries. At that point, we had moved to Kansas City and I was working at a liquor store a store that so beer and wine. And occasionally there would be. An accident in the cooler and one of the cans of beer. Would get damaged, and so they would put it aside and there was this box of what we call bent deer. And they said if you want to take one of those and you can take that home because we can't sell it. So I started doing that and That was my second job. So when I got home I was tired and mandate that be really hit the spot and then I started doing it more and more frequently and then with more and more quantity. And Pretty soon it was. Every night and weekends. and. It was it always worked. Until. One time it didn't I was at a company. Picnic. And the a beer truck pulled up to the picnic. Now when I say a beer, it wasn't a truck with cans or bottles of beer. It was a truck that had a giant keg on the back and spigots on the side and just walk up and help yourself. So that bad boy pulled up to the picnic and I said, well, here's an interesting challenge. See if we can empty this thing. So, I don't remember. Home I don't remember anything the rest of the day. Apparently. A blackout I had gone at bought. More Alcoholic bought. A. Jug of wine which I don't recall. And I woke up the next morning and I said to my wife I think I have a problem actually she reminded me that the first thing I, said was. Are. The kids because at this company Picnic I had three kids was meanwhile yeah and the second thing I said was I think I have a problem And Yeah. I've since asked my daughter my oldest daughter. how did driving home and she said, well, you stay between the lines most of time. Poor thing and. The that's reminds me of how I drank. I would also blackout and I would have for me it was. The next day I was like paranoid that I had done something really awful and that people had seen me and that I would be discovered at work was always the thing for me. So I mean I can totally relate to that feeling and so you had that experience of. Oh Gosh I guess the fear of know you're being out of control putting your. Your family at risk and. You realize that was it. Yes and it was very, very scary. Fortunately in the neighborhood, will you knew a couple both of them were in a A. And So. The wife Barbara was able to help my wife get into Elena. And also helped me in day. So she was pivotal. In our success right from the beginning.

Fresh update on "kansas city" discussed on WTOP 24 Hour News

"11. You might have seen the show on CNN, the United Shades of America, hosted by W. Kamal Bell on that, he says Milwaukee is often referred to as the most racist city in America. It was a hot topic on this week's episode of W. GOP's new podcast Colors. A dialogue on race in America. J. J. Green and Chris Core, talked about with John Norquist is Thie, former mayor of Milwaukee. He disagreed with that characterization 2010 It was rated according to Brookings Institute is the number one most racist. City in the country. But then so were Memphis. They were all the top 10. Memphis Detroit. Kansas City and all the ones that have black populations. It's disgusting, Norquist says. The ranking system itself is based on racist ideas from the 19 fifties. You can download colors. Friday evenings on apple podcast podcast one Spotify or wherever you get your podcast. The Postal Service. As we have been reporting, sending out those detailed letters to 46 states in D C, warning that it can't guarantee all the mail in ballots cast will arrive in time to be counted. Warning. Their votes could be disqualified even if they follow all of the rules. Washington Post reports the warnings come is the agency undergoes a undergoes a sweeping overhaul amid financial struggles. I talked about it with Erin Cox. She is one of the reporters from The Washington Post who broke the story the letters worn in very specific detail how deadlines or returning absentee ballots requesting them. And sending them out to voters don't match up with a speed that the Postal Service could deliver them. So the resulting mismatches the Postal Service called it could result in voters who requested or return their ballots close to the deadline. Actually not getting them back to be counted in time, which means voters could follow every single rule set out by state election officials and end up being disenfranchised. And Aaron as we might expect, the Democrats are claiming foul. The Republicans are being quiet, but we're talking about a service that handles Christmas male. They handle special occasion. So the people from the Postal Service they're saying that this should not be a big deal. The question is being asked. Among everybody that I talked to says what can be fixed in the remaining weeks leading up to this election based on our reporting, when we asked that question, the Postal Service at least the administration of it is putting the onus on elections officials and voters to turn their stuff in early They're saying that they cannot guarantee that male will be delivered and fewer than seven days And so if you want your ballot to count, asked for it early and return it early. I'm also looking at your article here, and it points out a stunning number. Already more than 60 lawsuits in at least two dozen states. I've already been filed, so it looks like the court's going to wind up being involved as well. Exactly. This is a huge national experiment in how we conduct elections. There's definitely been states that have been doing this for a long time. But they didn't start with statewide elections. They built the stuff. They spent years honing their programs working with postal service to make sure that the balance get delivered and working out the kinks and those were successful. Programs that were built over time, and they're definitely models that other states can follow. But on the other hand, you have all of these states that has never conducted elections this way, building it in a relatively short period of time. And so there's a lot of unknowns and there's potential here for a perfect storm of disenfranchisement, which is the key concern and Aaron before I let you go. Is there anything that can be done on the state level? Absolutely. I mean states can change their deadline's not every state, Maryland changed their deadline. They moved. There were deadline for requesting ballots. Early states can start putting out more and more voter drop off back so that you don't have to rely on the postal Service to deliver your ballot. You Khun, take it yourself to an election center or someplace and drop it off. There's a number of things that states Khun due to not have to rely on the Postal Service to get every single ballot where it needs to be when it needs to be. And that is Washington Post reporter Erin Cox Sports at 15 and 45 powered by Red River Technology decisions aren't black and white. Being read at 11 15 We turned Jonathan Warren. Well, del. The Capitals have the better talent. It appears the Islanders have the better. Coach Barry Trotz and New York have a tuo Siri's lead after squashing the Caps 5 to 2. Alex Ovechkin scored both goals for Washington. The 1st 1 coming just 54 seconds into the game, but the cabs didn't build on that and again 15 seconds after Obi tied the game at too early in the second period, the Islanders responded for the game winner. I'll have to play better start for me. But everybody has to make steaks, you know, but way can before someone mistakes. We have to move forward games.

Obituary: Herman Cain

"Herman Cain helped define the American black conservative movement. He also set the stage for trump by Philip Elliott. Herman. CAIN remembered the nineteen ninety-six moment that changed his political trajectory as clearly as any in his life. The businessman was advising Jack Kemp's vice presidential campaign and accompanied the boss to the iconic Sylvia's soul food restaurant in Harlem for an event a man in the crowd shouted out to Kane and colleagues Black Republicans, there's no such thing. The. Same Man in canes telling called them Uncle Toms. The episode. So angered Kane that when he got home from that campaign swing, he switched from a registered independent to a card carrying member of the Republican. Party and over the next quarter century, the child of the segregated south became one of the best known black Republicans in the country briefly rising to be his party's presidential front runner for the two thousand twelve nomination and remaining one of the most quotable stars in conservative media. So committed to his party's stick it in the I e host was Cain that he flew to Tulsa. Oklahoma for President Donald, trump's first return to the campaign trail after one hundred thousand US corona virus deaths despite dire warnings from public health experts at that endure rally on June twentieth the stage four colon cancer survivor posed for pictures without wearing a mask and sat in the packed stands with fellow fans of the president on June twenty-ninth Cain tested positive for the corona virus. On July second, his aides announced he had been hospitalized while fighting the disease his twitter account continued to criticize mask wearing and to promote unproven endorsements of hydroxy. On. July. Thirtieth CAIN aides announced he had died from the White House trump attributed the death to the thing called the virus cain among the most prominent Americans to die during this pandemic who was seventy four In many ways, Kane and trump were cut from the same cloth neither had been elected to any political post before running for the White House, both delighted in needling the Republican Party's establishment and the mainstream press they shot from the hip campaigned in slogans and didn't much care to learn the details. Both men were dogged by allegations of sexual affairs and inappropriate behavior, and both denied the allegations they proved disqualifying for Kane who ended his bid in December twenty eleven under intense scrutiny. But they did not derail trump just one election cycle. Later, they were also both savvy exploiters of the media. In saying things they knew would provoke outrage and thus amplify the celebrity at the core of their bids indifference toward if not hostility against what had come before was a cornerstone of their strategy, not a flaw. CAIN was born in Memphis in nineteen forty-five to a domestic worker mother and a janitor father when his dad was hired to be the chauffeur for the head of coca-cola, the family moved to Atlanta where cain would graduate from Morehouse College. He then completed his graduate studies at Purdue University after civilian service in the navy from there Kane moved from engineer to executive with Pillsbury and its subsidiaries of Burger King and Godfather's pizza where he would be its CEO. In nineteen, Eighty Eight, he oversaw Godfather's. From, Pillsbury throughout the same time yelled positions with the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. That part of his resume lead trump to consider cane for a position in his administration a move that drew dissent from fellow Republicans who were not eager to revisit the allegations against Kane for three years. Kane led the national. Restaurant Association a lobbying arm for the industry that paid settlements to at least two women who detailed canes unwanted advances. His was not a typical career in his post. CEO Years Cain became a sought after motivational speaker and unsuccessful presidential candidate in two thousand and a Senate one in two thousand four. As, the tea party movement started to organize after Barack Obama's election to the White House. Kane emerged as one of its strongest spokespeople when the twenty twelve election cycle began kane decided to run the scrappy est of campaigns focused on untrue additional travel schedule that often seemed more like a book tour than an organizing effort. His novel nine, nine nine tax plan proposing a nine percent corporate business flat tax, a nine percent personal income flat tax and a nine percent national sales tax drew I rolls from economists but curiosity from voters. Antipathy toward front runner Mitt Romney proved sufficient to give cain a chance to rise in the late summer and fall of twenty eleven until his personal life just proved too much. But he didn't shrink from podcast life. Instead he became a ubiquitous voice and reliable critic of Democrats

Members Of The Class Of 2020 Face A Brutal Job Market

"Just. A few months ago college seniors could reasonably expect to graduate into one of the best job markets in history. Now, because of the pandemic, they've graduated into one of the worst generations when members of the class of twenty twenty half landed jobs, the experience is odd NPR's Berlin reports. Twenty twenty was shaping up to be a great year for Golden. DACA, he be the first member of his family to graduate from college not only that he was the Valedictorian of his school. Morehouse College. ATLANTA. But in March, campus emptied and classes went online and then the moment he'd been waiting for commencement it was postponed I wanted to give that huge speech onstage with my family friends and loved ones who made it very possible for me to go to it came to an abrupt end been expecting rites of passage and celebration. Instead he landed in the pandemic, it's been a really difficult transition you know and it's been one that's a mocking allies with. A lot of uncertainty. A lot of self doubt. Worst of all, his grandmother who was supposed to come see him graduate passed away in their native. Zambia. Despite everything, there has been a bright spot dako landed a paid fellowship with the governor of Illinois after four rounds of remote interviews. So I'm more on the fortunate side and a lot of my classmates in other individuals across the nation are is a very challenging time to be a new college graduate through pollock is a Labor economist with the job sites Ziprecruiter. So compared with fee labor market in February before covert hit, we have seen job postings for the entry level positions most popular among new college graduates fall by seventy three percent. But even though postings have plummeted, people are still landing jobs. So even in a crisis, there are companies hiring eighteen million jobs have been posted. On ziprecruiter since covert struck, what has changed dramatically is how those new workers get hired interviews or evolving from those zoom skype calls and now to virtual video platforms where you record yourself answering the questions and then send that video in yourself. So you have no interaction with a person that all the lack of face to face human interaction that's been one constant for Danielle Kaplan she graduated this spring from the University of Iowa, and moved in with her mom it's been fine. But with a lot of activity around the house, it was tricky for her to find a quiet place for job interviews. So I, feel like my interviewer singing a different background, every single time with them. You know this is a very difficult, but as it turned out, backgrounds didn't matter. So I will be heading to Kansas City to work at a startup in. So I'm really excited about it. Kaplan's excitement is accompanied by trepidation because so much of the last few months felt unreal even disembodied. This is a huge major life transition that I'm about to undergo and it doesn't feel that way. I've been virtually meeting people. Virtually getting an apartment. So nothing feels like tangible to me all that is about to change this weekend. Kaplan will load up a rental truck and moved to a new hometown. Kansas. City. There won't be anything virtual about it.

Seattle Mayor Believes Federal Deployments Are Part Of A Darker Political Goal

"Kinds of tensions in Seattle. Clashes between protesters and police turned violent last weekend, but Seattle's Democratic mayor, Jenny Durkin, told the Department of Homeland Security she did not want federal agents sent into her city. She later discovered a force was deployed and put on standby. Now they have left. Mayor Durkin spoke with our co host, Rachel Martin, about why she and other mayors feel these federal deployments. Part of a bigger, darker political goal. We have, like any other city. We have public safety challenges. But our public safety challenges have been made significantly worse by this president's actions in his words, the dinner in level of criminal activity. We're really deteriorated after the president started tweeting about it, and it was a subject to have Fox coverage every night. So we have seen and I've talked to mayors across the country the same thing when the president actually tweets, and it's not my words saying he's targeting death City is run by Democrats. He's openly admitted it and tweeted about it. Um And I think that that is really a chilling prospect of a president. United States, which is federal resource is for political purposes. The Department of Justice has said that there is an expansion happening right that all of this the deployment of federal agents to a variety of cities Now we're seeing Chicago Albuquerque, Kansas City now Milwaukee, Detroit, Cleveland. This is all part of so called Operation legend that this has to do with gun violence, quelling gun violence in these cities helping solve murders. This's the DOJ zone characteristic of what this operation is about. I guess I'm hoping you can clarify for me. Is this operation legend something that's happening? Adjacent, separate from from the agents that had been deployed to Portland. And for a couple of days, at least this standby force to Seattle. I actually think they're using it as camouflage. There are ongoing task force in major cities, the deal with gun violence and with gang violence and other violent crime. We had him in Seattle and I worked on him is U. S attorney I know I've spoken with the mayor of Chicago and Albuquerque, and they have a strong collaborative approach with federal law enforcement. It is very rare. If it all federal law enforcement will surge agents to a city to deal with public safety threats that are normally handled by city or state officials. Without talking to or working with local officials. You have described what President Trump is doing as being a political ploy to play his own base ahead of the election into some kind of law and order message. As as a former U. S attorney for the Western District of Washington is anything he's doing or the federal government at his behest illegal. I think it could be unconstitutional. Under the 11th Amendment. Remember, public safety is generally reserved to the states and to their cities, a subdivision of the states by our Constitution. There's also restrictions on the powers that federal law enforcement have and what they can enforce. They generally cannot room the streets of a city in enforce city or state law. But the other thing I will say, though it is unprecedented for federal authorities to take this level of approach for local jurisdictions in cities and Serge Federal resource is in them to take over public safety duties like arresting people. Police protesters. And I've said it before. I know some people think it's it sounds overdramatic, but to me, it looks like a dry run for martial law. And if we see these kinds of federal agents put into places where there's voting right concerns I'm very concerned about what it could do to suppress the vote in America. Say more about that. You're worried that in places where there might be concerns about whether or not people get access to the polls, right? I mean, if you look at it now, the places that that they're sending these Federal agents are primarily in places where there are significant protests against police violence and for racial equity. And it doesn't take much of a lead to also used those agents to say You're protecting the poles but have federal agents in and around polling places, too. Spite against fraud when really a suppression? I think we need a very clear commitment in advance of the election that general law enforcement are not going to be used as some kind of super police. In key battleground states in around you places. You've been talking with different mayor's around the country. Your counterparts in different states. Is that the kind of thing that has come up in conversation with them it has come up. I will tell you were focused day to day on dealing with the crisis in our city. But this kind of action when we feel happening in so many cities across your country, it gives all of us a grave concern is where it is. Jenny Durkan is the mayor of Seattle. We appreciate your time.

MLB Marks The 100th Anniversary Of The Negro Leagues

"Baseball is marking the anniversary of the Negro leagues created 100 years ago. The league's showcased black baseball players players who couldn't play on the major teams because of the color of their skin. Only a few members of the leagues are alive to celebrate the centennial Michigan radios, Doug Tribute spoke to the only surviving team owner and others about the legacy of the legendary leagues. In 1920 owners of independent black baseball teams from the Midwest gathered in Kansas City, Missouri. At that meeting they created the Negro National Leagues had no idea they were making history. They didn't care about making history. Bob Kendrick heads the Negro Leagues Baseball museum there, he says. Faced with segregation, black owners and players kept pushing for organized baseball. These athletes never cried about the social injustice. They went out and did something about so you won't let me play with you and I create my own And they did today. Stars like Josh Gibson, Buck Leonard and Satchel Paige are enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame, but thousands of black and Latino players endured bigotry and racist taunts. It was Tear before the players at that time. Many Forbes owned the Detroit Stars from 1956 to 1958. She lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan, that players try of them. They had nowhere to stay because of the discrimination, so they slept in the buses. And they couldn't go in places to eat so one person would go to the back door. When get food for all the players. Pedro Sierra pitched in the Negro leagues for several seasons in the 19 fifties. He grew up in Cuba and says it was tough to adjust to segregation and racism he saw in the US It wasn't easy to see all the problem with the raise. I know all about it, herb artist. But I hadn't experienced today. Sierra lives in New Jersey In 1954 he signed with the Indianapolis clowns at the age of 16. His salary was less than 5% of what white players were earning dollars a month a month, $100 a month. And I look back and say, Oh my God. Jackie Robinson played briefly in the Negro leagues. Then, in 1947 he broke baseball's color barrier with the Brooklyn Dodgers in Cleveland, Larry Doby became the first black player in the American League. Coming seasons brought many more signings. But many Forbes sympathizes with the many athletes who were good enough to play in the major leagues, but never got a shot. Unfortunately, some of the good players by the time the time Came. They were too old to play. The last league folded in the early 19 sixties, the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum estimates there are about 100 former players still alive. Forbes is 88 worries about being one of the last left to tell the story. And I just want a if I'm worthy of represent and speaking about the Negro League because When I got involved, things was easier for me. Then it wass father one before me. Many Forbes will keep sharing her stories with younger generations and others will to Major League Baseball has a day to honor the league's set for next month. The museum has pushed back its year long celebration of the centennial to next year and renamed it Negro Leagues. 101

Interview With Ben Shapiro, Author Of How to Destroy America in Three Easy Steps

Interview With Ben Shapiro, Author Of How to Destroy America in Three Easy Steps

"With US co founder Of the daily wire. Ah, host of the Ben Shapiro Show number one New York Times bestseller. His latest book is How to Destroy American Three Easy Steps. Ben. He wrote this book. And we're in the middle of this. We seem to be dead Set on destroying America. Did you give everyone a blueprints or something? I am glad that I cannot take responsibility for it. I did not give them will bring. But I won't say that. When I wrote the book in the summer January, I figured out the relevant I didn't think you'd be quite literally been quite this quickly, like all the all the syndrome that I was talking about taking the country broke out into the open at once. So, you know, forget about the gun violence. What? You talked about the civil unrest in Philadelphia in Oakland in Portland in Seattle in New York City in Austin in Albuquerque. And And in Kansas City. What's going on here? I mean, what we're watching right now is a variety of movements, all pretending, t be about civil rights and moving the country better and then all immediately about making the country worse, But they're really about Castigating America as uniquely horrible castigating America systems as repositories of privilege and evil and saying that those systems need to be torn down. Whether you're talking about black lives matter. Rioters in Los Angeles or New York or Washington, DC, or the top men and rioters in Portland or in Seattle. We're watching in the end is sort of a lion's that says that the United States is bad. It's just that the bleeding spear of an ideology That that claims that the United States of systems are unworthy of continuing and need to be tor now out at the root, and there's a reason that Nicole Hannah Jones is very proud, she said. This on Twitter that did it that count 16 19 project and tackle editor of The New York Times. At this point, she said, on Twitter that she was happy. The people were suggesting that what happened in New York and L. A in Washington, D, C and all over the country that was 16 19 riots, meaning that her perspective on the United States namely that it was rooted in evil. And it's inseparable from that evil. That perspective had taken such hold. Now let me ask you Does that come up in the interview? Hi. How you doing? Tell me about your background. You seem to be a good writer and your view of America. It's terrible needs to be disassembled. And what based on slavery? I think you're the perfect person. We have a column. Feed it right. And we have a news division for you to lead so to prove bench appeal. You're right. I'm looking at, uh Ted Lin Seth. He is somebody who is A, uh, African American activist. He said Oregon is white is hell. Uh, he said that He warned that the black guys, Ah matter movement in the city is being co opted by quote privileged white people with their own agenda. It is not our agenda and double a C P is saying the same thing. Why are you telling us what we need again? If it is a white black thing? Why we, depending why are white people taking the lead is not the ultimate insult, telling black people What they need for justice. Late is pretty incredible. But even it goes back to this view of racism that is actually pushed by people like you bring Candy and Robert Angelo and Kenny, Of course, the author of how to Be a racist and from the Beginning and Financial of the author of My Fragility, their View of the United States that the United States is on only racist, But the racism is embedded in all of its systems. And so the way to you identify raising them. Is not how we used to identify racism used to be. You could pretty easily tell who's the racist who ever thought that there was inferiority or superiority based on racial race, right? That was the definition of racist well, Now they changed the definition. They say Any system that create any sort of racial inequality or results in any sort of racial inequality is a racist system. And if you don't want to tear down the system You are racist. Not only that, if you're a white person, you bear all responsibility for this so nobly bears responsibility for the success of white privilege to have lived under and propagated this particular system. What That doesn't mean that white people are still in charge. And the white people are the are the people who have you know, in the sort of old Runyon Kipling phrase that the white man burden to fix the entire system. And so what That means that the views of people of color actually don't matter. The only ones that actually matter are the views of people like Robin D'Angelo was going to cure the country of Whiteness and hat and take on the past in of the United States, So that's why you see these bizarre videos of these white protesters lecture and black ops about what America needs on racism. But I also find her standing, too, is the place they're just overrun with gun violence. And that, of course, is Chicago with great Rahm Emanuel rained and left with his tail between his legs but came out with his chest high with his with his chin in the air in his chest pumped out as if he was a great victor. So because the president did states actually did what he said he was going to use his Listen. I'm gonna send some federal help in there. To not to handle protesters on the Christopher Columbus statue. No, but to find out about these guys. Gangs there were running rampant and the sub gangs that are killing each other. They're shooting each other at funerals at funerals. And here's the mayor. Who blames it on who blames this whole thing on the president's and his willingness to cab federal help cut seven I've drawn a very hardline will not allow federal troops in our city. We will not tolerate unnamed agents, taking people off the street, violating their rights and holding them in custody. That's not happening here in Chicago, so I've drawn a very, very bright line. I've made that very clear to every federal authority that I have spoken with. And they understand that if they cross that line We will not hesitate to use every tool at our disposal to stop troops and unwanted agents in our city. So this woman who should be begging for help with 117,000 gang members, 55 known gangs 747 factions, and they say there are 2500 subsets of those major gangs. You think this won't be begging for help? Instead, she's drawing the line and went through. When push comes to shove, she'll take down Columbus a statue. What planet are we on, Ben? We're on a planet where one of the one of the tactics But that's being used by mayors across the country who are on the left is something that unauthorized infront Eagle, who would the counter of City Institute hey called the riot ideology. The basic idea here back in the 19 sixties, and that was the riots or sometimes useful because politicians will use them as a way to club the citizenry into essentially giving the rioters what they want. So Marion Barry technically did this in Washington, DC He wouldn't work with people outside the governments who are protesting, but actually, we're in Aged in violence, and then he would basically say that the taxpayer to do all these people will stop here to the five things you need to do this something John Lindsay in New York City during the 19 sixties. He basically said the way that we can help alleviate the underlying problems here and do all the things we want you to do. Well, if you're a leftist politicians, you have two possible sort of solutions here. One is that you surrender to the protesters simply because You are afraid that they are more work than you are. And that you're going to be castigated is insufficiently weapons. And at the same time you can go to the citizenry consideration. We can alleviate all these problems. All you have to do these things. I want you to know you're starting to see hints of this nationally. By the way, you're starting to see writers say things like, you know, it's awful. This is Trump resign tonight. You're saying that part out loud, Which is it? This whole thing is about you wanting what you want, and you're only going to stop this democratic elected So essentially, you're threatening the law abiding citizens of the United States. You're going to continue violating law and wrecking major cities and shutting down major cities in six PM and curfews unless you get what you want. Well, that's never believe him. Ocracy is operated and no democracy can operate under those conditions. So, Ben, do you get the sense in looking at your book? There are reasonable people in the middle that understand when a mayor Lightfoot says things the way they do way, understand that these liberal mayor's saying, this is going to be the summer of love in Portland and then see the ransacking of a city like we're seeing, and now we see it re re igniting in Seattle. So when do you get the sense that there's a majority of Americans who who don't care about the politics but a logical enough to see the problem? So I think that most Americans, definitely the problem. I think the biggest problem right now is that the media is such an incredible job of making intimate. Everybody's focusing on President Trump that they've ignored the real problems that are played in the country right now, and they're downplaying it purposefully in order to convince Americans that none of this is happening, how you get that, during that quote, where, he says there's no such thing as in chief of violence. And the only way that you could do that number one of your delusional but number two. If you really think that you could get away with that, and the media decided point again, which they have been playing, So do I think that the vast majority of Americans are happy to go along with us. No, I think the best majority Americans know that this is nonsense. But I think that the polarization around the election is so effective and so effective around President Trump. This is the media have basically been able to make this a referendum on Trump as opposed to a referendum on violence. And this is why it's very important to President Trump be incredibly focused last 100 days of this campaign he really needs Prevent the media from using distraction in order to avoid the logical conclusion here, which is that if you actually want this stuff to stop and not paid to rioters and looters and protesters, then what you actually need is somebody who is going to affect you wait longer. The president needs to make that message inescapable until you can offer the sort of distraction that maybe sometimes I wonder if you know one thing I have to say he's been pretty discipline. I thought he had a very good week last week. He definitely saw the change in messaging, and I do think 99 days in this In this world we're in is a lifetime. I agree. I agree. I think last week was much much better, and we just need to see that we just need to see them and we don't want this to become you know that that image from the Simpson nations work actually read that back to zero. Instead. What we just want is consistent level of solidity coming from the White House looking people have been, I think, begging for this from the beginning because President Trump's policies are actually quite popular. And when President Trump 16 script that he is quite popular, the problem is that he hasn't so if he can actually being here's the discouraging part. He's down in the polls. The encouragement He performed about badly de cluttering will have three months and just not not in terms of policy. But in terms of stuff he's been saying would mean that this is a low water mark, and you're going to see him rise in the polls are gonna start to see things tighten up a little bit at the very least before the election, and if he's disciplined, and if he can point to this he really has to do is point you say well, what Democrats are supporting worst. Joe Biden condemning these riots. Worthy. He's hiding in the basement. Where is it? You want to do an interview? Chris Wallace, it Trump can do that and be consistent about it. Then I think this election's been tied up with her. But I just think that we're not looking at Barack Obama had 5 48 years old with his his eloquent speech and promises that he couldn't fulfill. But you say Well, pretty talented guy, Bill Clinton. He had all his personal problems. But man, can he speak, and he certainly was comfortable on a myriad of issues. No one doubted his intellect. But when you look at Joe Biden, he's the worst candidate that I have seen in my lifetime. And if President Trump can close the gap and force him to actually campaign That would actually be an exponential gain for him. I mean, no question. I mean, Joe Biden is an extraordinarily we candidate who's being benefited by two particular circumstances. One Kobe has made it so he doesn't have to go out and campaign is actually benefiting him tremendously. He just gets to stay home and talk to friendly's basically was really nice for him. He doesn't have to demonstrate any level of potential energy. It all on number two is the fact that he's campaigning. As I said before, essentially the dead person. He's basically what you're saying. I am. A tree stump. And you don't like trump to vote for the tree stump. And so that makes it really a referendum on Trump, which means that this is very much about hands from shift the burden of proof back to buy as opposed to letting it sit on his own shoulders. So then, Lastly, you write the book how to destroy America in three easy steps. I felt as though I am well the book by just reading the news. Unfortunately, if the word destroyed does work, and it is getting, I think it's beginning TTO unnerve our allies. What's happening in our country right now. What is the element that we could see around the bend that would make you believe that we are on that path that we have not discussed yet? I think that the one thing that they would allow us to recover here is a renewed sense of what America's history is all about What the book really does juxtaposed to stations in the country. One is what I thought it's not really left right. So much of it is unions versus disintegration is Do we even want to be a country anymore? If we do we have to have a shared philosophy rooted in the declaration of Independence have assured culture rooted Masonic institutions like churches. And school that values entrepreneurship adventure that values taking care of neighbor. And then if we and we all have a shared history, we have to have a belief that the United States actually an incredibly glorious place. That glorious place ought to be of help. If we don't have those things were gonna fall apart. I think that can be re invoke ated. You've seen Antifa. I mean, they don't. They don't seem to like you. They seem to show up with some of your speeches. Are you seeing their imprint on, especially over in Oregon in Seattle? Hundreds. I mean, you can see all the hall marks mean There's certain things you just look for visually raising both flags. You see the You see the red flags You see people who are dressed, own blast at the bicycle helmet and the goggles. You know this is it's perfectly obvious to everybody that he was deeply involved in very active in Portland for years reporter and you know, it has pointed out another action in Seattle as well. Look at what you're going to see right now. And this is the most predictable effect is a mass, a mass evacuation of major setting two years to see everybody who can afford to leave these nature city. But his major said, because who wants to live there? I want to pay inordinate taxes in order. Get shut down in 68 every night watcher business burnout. It doesn't come in a party today. I think figure I never sent right as a broadcast from New York City virtually alone. There is nobody here, Uh, Bank. Congratulations on the book. How to destroy American. Three Easy steps, continue to get the word out and continue not to take a step backwards. Thanks. Appreciate it.

"Welcomed or guest today, Hector Baretto Hector form headed up the United States. Small Business Administration today. He's the chairman of the Latino Coalition. Thanks for waking up early with us. Do this actor thank you in our Co host Laura Collins, once again. Welcome back, Laura. She's the director in the Bush. Institute smu Economic Growth Initiative thank you. Thank Santa I. Only wake up early for this I know we. To Peel back the curtain we're here at about seven thirty in the morning in Dallas and Lauren I were comparing notes and turns out that one of us are morning. People so hector. We're looking. We're looking at you. Demand on. West Coast time. It's like five thirty in your body clock Oh. That's rough. Hector's here for our SME Economic Growth Advisory Council where he is one of them. Is that help guide the policy work that we do at the Bush Institute, because both of his expertise is the forty first administrator, the small business, and because his work with the Latino Coalition. Let's start with the former when you were with the small business administration. What was the goal of that department? What were you? You, all working on the small business. Administration was actually started in one, thousand, nine, hundred, fifty, three by President Eisenhower and there were some small business programs before that, but they unified those all into one agency, and it's really the agency that supports and advocates for America's small businesses, and that role has become even more important over the years when they formed the SBA. There probably weren't thinking that was going to be over thirty million small businesses in the united. United States and I like to say nothing small about small business. They really are the engine of America, the engine that fuels the economy of America not only are there a lot of them, but they represent over fifty two percent of the gross output of the economy. It's the place that two-thirds the net new jobs of our economy comes from, and it's also the place that a lot of our innovation comes from. That makes us the envy of the world. World in terms of our economy so very very important agency. A lot of people have heard of it, but they oftentimes don't know everything it does. Where does your passion for Small Business? Come from a well? That's easy. I was fortunate to be born into an entrepreneurial family, so the first business owners I ever met where my mother and father and my father was especially a serial entrepreneur. He loved business. He loves starting businesses. I'm not saying he loved running. My mother ran the business ideas, man yeah, but I learned a lot about a small business I used to joke that everything I learned about business. I learned in a Mexican restaurant because that's why I worked when I was a little kid. What jobs is you? Hold with your parents Oh, a lot of them, you know we were an immigrant family and. There was five children. My mother had five children six years. I have four younger sisters, and so we were all recruited to my father's executive training program very early on, so we all had to work I remember waiting tables when I was nine years old. So And then I. as I got older, I got more responsibility and help run some of those businesses and start some of those businesses, and my father had a number of different businesses. We started off with the restaurant business, because that's an easy business to access, but then later on at a little import export business, a little construction business, none of those businesses wherever really large, but they were very important to our family helps support us. They helped educate, and we learned a lot about being in business and working with the community and customers, and so your father came to America start these businesses. He actually didn't. My father was an immigrant to the United States in the late nineteen fifties. I don't think he was planning on staying that long. But he met my mother. My mother is also from immigrant parents from Mexico they've shown love, and and of all places they started their journey in Kansas City Missouri that's where I was born. I grew up in Kansas City Missouri and my father. He had a lot of different jobs as a lot of immigrants do when they first get here. His first jobs were picking. Picking potatoes for fifty cents an hour in rural Missouri and later on, he worked at a railroad, a literally pounding the spikes into the ground, but in the winter it got too cold, so he moved into He started working in the livestock business, and it was very difficult. dirty work. He was cleaning out stalls, but at least it was warmer than being outside. When he was working at the railroad later on he, he was a janitor at the school that I would eventually go to, but my father used to always say that he was a business owner, and I would say dad. You have these jobs. You're not a business owners. They know what I have to do right now, but eventually alone my own business, so he was very passionate about that. He always wanted to work for himself, so he starts so then he starts these businesses and his career trajectory starts trending too so far up that start happening. Yeah, my father was a very visionary leader very. Very charismatic you know he when he's grown up used to say know. I came here with nothing I didn't know anybody. I didn't speak the language. I had no money I had no power, but I believed in myself I was willing to work hard, and this is such a great country that affords us the opportunity to go as far as we WANNA go. We're only limited by our own imagination our own commitment, so he he's. We started these businesses, but later on my father was kind of an organizer as well, and he wanted to belong to the Chamber of Commerce. This is in Kansas City. Number of others spanning businesses. There were there at the time, and my father started asking. Where's the Hispanic Chamber? And they said well. There isn't an Hispanic Chamber. My Dad said well there should be, and if nobody else is going to start it, I will so my father was one of the founders of the Kansas City Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, that was in the mid seventies,

"A partnership or just a relationship with them Chris. I'm not sure if you're familiar with one million cups. It's been years but I actually went and spoke In front of them and it was after the business had come gotten started and so it was more than you know and they they invite him talk but it was more of like an intro for my business rather than The kind of the start of side that I know a lot of the discussions. Are they do a great job of you know even if you're in the very early stages of starting a business and you want to go and talk and present? They've got a room full of intelligent people in different fields. And can give you really quick feedback on no advice on what you're doing and so i. I was very impressed by that absolutely. I actually spoke for one million cups as well I did that last July. And so yes that was a really great opportunity for me As well and and you know like you said it's really just to give you and I wouldn't necessarily gifts they give your pitch is to give your back story on why you're doing what you're doing now and the integrity behind your business to build those relationships within the community and you never know who's sitting in the audience who can you know lend a hand or or who is an investor or or anything like that so Yes don't be scared to reach out to these organizations Kansas City. There's plenty available even during this time and I know that one million cups they don't have anything virtual as far as giving your pitch but to get the ball rolling. This would be a great time. You A lot of. Don't have anything I don't WanNa say do anything better to do. But this is a time to be innovative. I mean we are forced into this. So yeah really do your research in and see what's available to you as a small business there in Kansas City. Because I'm Chris like you had mentioned can't can't city is a bigger city but it's a small community and you know within the brewery community you know there's all this help and people welcoming welcoming entrepreneurs with open arms and you know that should be the same in every industry because if you scratch each other's back. I mean the sky's the limit and you know like you're doing right now. Chris were you you all. Keep each other afloat so I just. That's the awareness behind what's going on and and so I guess the most important thing for for this is to state innovative change with the Times change with The economy chain with the quarantine. Just give yourself an opportunity to thrive in a time that otherwise you know we look at is possibly depression. But you have to figure out a way to maintain this scenario and there's actually lighted into the tunnel Chris. I think that's a huge thing. I'm not sure if you watched the president address the nation tonight but there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel and that gives me more confidence as a business owner. And I'm sure you as well kind of talk about that a little bit. Does it seem like things are picking up at it or is this something that's maintaining and hasn't really shown any signs of a break for for the beer industry? It's it's kind of early fights because we are changing a lot of our plans. We are getting some things moving. That will work better for the situation. Right now So like nobody were providing river brewing new beers were brewing back sizes to.

Well Kobe's from outside of Philadelphia. I'm from outside of Philadelphia. We're not anywhere close same age about twelve years. Apart in age and He went to Lower Merion high school. I went to Upper Marion. High School. I did a An East sixteen feature story On Kobe Ten years ago and so even though we each other and were you know you You know Kinda close then because the Lakers were on. Were on television. This you know the Lakers shack air. I remember all that I mean. We have Lakers every week on the on on our NBA coverage on ABC So it was like every week I was either. La At a home game or had them on the road much like the last couple of years has been the warriors that we have on every week So it's just when you see someone like that all the time there there. Are you know you stop it. You're staying in the same hotels. You had dinner a few times. You have drinks a few times A- and you'd be you'd get to be friends and so You know and not. You're not just talking about basketball. In fact I don't know how many many times we ever had basketball conversation. Maybe a few but mostly it was just about life. Our kids Me At the time I was trying to have children at the time So he was around for all of that When I was trying to have children when I adopted my my my son he he was around for all of that as a friend To to offer encouragement and support so Just thirty years We just became friends like we. We you know were not Best friends or anything like that but you know I was proud to call him a friend of mine if I ever needed anything I knew that I could give them a call after he retired. You know we would text a couple of times couple times a year just to touch touch base. Keep in touch how you doing on holidays stuff like that So I'll definitely miss them. So so how'd you get the news. Finally when it was going around that pro bowl Sunday which we all have been hearing in suspecting but didn't know his true until later Just from the from our our truck You know where everything is coming in and out of the trunk you know how that setup is in central and our producer Jay Rothman. He was hearing the news. And you just kinda related to all of us me booker tests over our. This is what we're hearing. We have been confirmed at where we don't know it's it's true but just so you know this is what we're hearing and that was literally like fifteen eighteen minutes before we're we're going on the air and so how do you manage to keep it together knowing that a friend of yours and eight others just perishing. This helicopter crash that became and still is the talk of our country. Well I didn't I didn't really you didn't I didn't together what happened there were There are a lot of tears to make people had to repeatedly Tend to me to make me look like I had not been grind the players had to I I remember drew. BREES is just. He's just the kindest most gracious guy you'll ever meet. I've never had to have a player consoled me before during an interview and he He knew the pain that I was in You know I remember him putting his arm around me and giving me a big hug. I remember Suzy Kolber To offer to do the game for me she said I. If you can't do this all come do it. I'll come to the sidelines. Free and I met a lot And I almost took her up on it but I thought just kind of sitting around and not doing doing anything less than going to be better. So no no. I didn't hold it together all that. Well what would you remember about that afternoon. After getting the were there had to be so many emotional moments and you remember drew brees. You Remember Suzy and I'm rubbing the truck volunteering. Hey if you need more hands on deck got into it to you directly but I said you know you WANNA go all hands on deck and you need our help. LemMe knowing we'll head right back out there. What stands out to you about that afternoon? Still when you think back to it. Just how Itself just how Numb I felt and I just Kinda felt like I was under water Couldn't really focus And you know it's just many times it's kind of staring. I could not tell you a single play from the pro bowl. I don't remember anything about the game itself Nothing I don't remember raving about the game. I just remember off at half-time Usually I kind of do some work during halftime and I remember just sitting down and just staring at the ground for like twenty minutes Until my my producer on the field with me said okay you gotta get up now. They're starting the end. Oh okay So I just. I don't remember much about the game at all. Do you remember any players coming to you. Being that you're the sideline reporter Porter appointive information asking you if it happened to be true what we were hearing in that stadium that day. No they hit it They had heard already so they knew like they hit They had heard it in the locker room and had been had been told what had happened But players you know while they weren't asking me for information they were. They were certainly kind of conveying. They're shocked they're just belief that and And their sorrow and you saw that you saw that in the in the interviews that That we did what. I was surprised by that And I guess I shouldn't be surprised because these players are so young But I was surprised by how many really had never you know weren't weren't really all that tight with him or even met him Drew Breeze had told me that he met him once and I was like really. That seems crazy to me. He drew brees and he's Kobe. Like how did you. How did you guys know each other like better than that But you know two different worlds different circles football NBA And I know that you know at times the world in you know collide in effect but Yeah I was surprised it for most of the guys the reaction was wow like this like most fans like they reacted like fans like I. I can't believe this is the death of a legend and But they weren't. I felt like I was one kind of new new new new new him. More than just kind of you know the guy On the Lakers so being that you were struggling to hold it together on Sunday during the pro bowl how did you hold it together on Friday night. Being the sideline reporter for the Lakers trailblazers game where they honored him in the other victims of the crash Both I was hard to The I think that pre-game tribute it was twenty five minutes long so I didn't hold it together all that great thing you know. They didn't come to be right after that. Because me like everyone else in the arena like the announcers we were all well Choked up at that time. Anyone who you know who knew Kobe. Like like we do. And you know even and in talking with Mike Breen and Justin Gundy and Mark Jackson again The relationship that they had to Kobe was different than the one that I talk to them. He he you know their relationship is like the one that I have with those of the players football basketball. You know you're like you like you're cool. You're cool cool with them. Cool with all of them but you know how it is Adam. There are few that you become friends with of course and it's and it's more so not a lot but just a few that are that are your friend and he was just one of those guys. What will you remember about that Friday night experience and it was like like to be in that arena that night A couple of things one You know I'm in the arena hours before the doors even open to the public so seeing all every single seat Covered with a t shirt and number eight or number twenty four t shirt Seeing the bowl look like that in all yellow with his number numbers on every seat that was powerful it kind of took your breath away sheers rendition of amazing grace. I mean He. He took took church right from the beginning. You felt like you were at a a memorial service and Just another thing is just watching the the Lakers you know as whereas they were standing for the national anthem just players hugging each other. You know holding each other up visibly hurting You don't see that often. and which is like that What will stay with me Wiz Khalifa Shirley booth that halftime song? See See you again. That was incredible See and again half time I am working so I was not out on. The court did not I could hear it in the In the tunnel and the backlog locker rooms but I didn't see it So but yeah I can imagine You know just seeing the regulars like the Rob Pelinka and Jeanie Buss. That you know from if you just kinda looked from a distance everything looked like a normal Lakers game. A regular Lakers game. But then then you like you look closer and you see everyone's eyes red and puffy and everyone just heartbroken the players that usually come back for games See see them. I saw Matt Barnes You know and he said he's he's upset and he's like you know I just saw He met with showing you that he also coaches his twins basketball team and he said coping with send shoes and would come to their practices Apparently are really good team. I'm on the West Coast. I travel team and You know everyone thinks still even Friday six days later and I know it was only six days later but everyone who's still kind of in this kind of just just kind of heartbroken. I wouldn't say shocked because the shock part had worn off the just just kind of I I asked Dwight Howard you know how you doing. And he summed it up perfectly. He's just like devastated. We're devastated. I think that's what a lot of people it felt. So how did you have anything left in your emotional tank to even do the Super Bowl on Sunday Well because they do it I have to But yeah it's been honestly. I had a pre game workout in the gym at the hotel. You were at that hotel. And he saw it wasn't the greatest of of gyms but It was really tiny but it's probably probably so small that no one wanted to be in there but on Sunday morning I was in there and I was by myself and I was listening to my Gospel Music and I just broke down and cried and I felt better after it. I felt like I told my a friend of mine afterwards. I was like wow I just got. I'm glad no one came in and had Jim because because I just went in and I said I feel a little better now like now. It's time to go to the Super Bowl Do you ever recall having any kind of we collect that Lisa emotionally anything professionally that could compare to that No no nothing thing like that. But I mean I've done some pretty difficult assignments before When I was with ABC? I covered uh you know the crash of TWA flight. Eight hundred I remember just kind of being just emotionally drained during the nine days or eight or nine days that I I did that off. The coast of Mauritius The Oklahoma City bombing was there. The they're percent they're the afternoon right after the morning that it happened so hours later. was there for nine days. I remember being you know emotionally wiped out after that But it's different when you feel when you have a personal connection to something It certainly you know as a human being. I felt for everyone involved in that. That plane crash and in the bombing But it is. It's just a little different when you have a personal connection to a tragedy edgy So yeah like I said I've I've done some some gut wrenching stories before but this was different. Want to thank you very much for agreeing to take this time and when I had asked you to do this last Thursday you said let me think about it and I appreciate the fact that you did think about it and come back to me with with you being willing to do this because I think everybody wanted to hear. I wanted to hear what you had to say about this and you handled it like a pro and you did a great job and I salute you for for all the work you put in how you handled it and again like I said I was just blown away to see you do all these things all within the span of one week with your emotional gas tank on empty so I did.

NFL players were accepted into the pro football hall of fame. Choi pull them Abu. Steve atwater Isaac Bruce Steve Hutchinson and James All are incredibly deserving. But I was disappointed to see that. Thanks to an emission on the list the Jacksonville Jaguars are still the only team team. Without a signature player in the hall of fame and that emission is left. Tackle Tony Boselli now. The reason why selley who made the top ten list for the third year in a row isn't in the hall is obvious you play just ninety one games over the course of seven seasons before retiring due to injuries in two thousand and two It's hard for players to get in short careers so it has happened before. Terrell Davis for example was inducted with just seventy eight games under his belt but he also also played a much more prominent position with statistics that are easier for people to comprehend. And that's why I think besides being overlooked yes he was a five time pro bowler with three all pro seasons and a member of nineteen ninety s all decade team but it can be hard to quantify dominant offensive line play Sally who was drafted second and overall in the one thousand nine hundred five draft out of USC is truly truly dominant for evidence. Go look pilots from the Jaguars First Ever playoff game game against the Buffalo Bills in one thousand ninety six. Sally went one on one with First Ballot Hall of Famer Bruce Smith who's widely regarded as one of the best pass rushers to ever do you it and he absolutely stonewalled him. Tony Boselli is just doing an excellent job with Bruce Smith weather. Bruce wants to go hard inside he can take him here. He's lined up out in space. Tries to come up the field to create the angle the selley just don't Smith himself has vouched for Sally to enter the hall which is about as good endorsement as an offensive. Lineman can get now. It wasn't all bad news for the Jaguars this weekend. Current Stud Defensive End. Clay's Campbell was named Walter Peyton Man of the year which is an award that honors excellence on and off the field marking a first for the organization. But it's got a sting for jags fans to see Sally go unrecognized. I understand that his case is a bit complicated. Dominance should trump all is not the hall of very good or the hall of longevity. He didn't play forever. He made his career count more than most I mean and this has been espn daily. I'll talk to you tomorrow..

Chart looks like the Ekg of someone dying painful and surprising death. He has now been outscored. Outscored forty six to zero with ten minutes left in two super bowls by the way as I say that out loud. It sounds ridiculous because his defenses are the ones who are getting. He's out scored but that's neither here nor there. How much blame does he deserve? After the Game Tire Matthew said he was grateful that the niners stopped running so so much in started throwing the ball again. Speaking of trolling. Do you think that's fair. Yes and no I think Shanahan cost them this game in some ways. But I don't know that it's that playcalling where they didn't run the ball quite as much because you look at the actual plays in the fourth quarter was. They weren't too unreasonable. The first drive of the fourth worth quarter they ended up in third and fourteen. They have to throws a false start penalty a run for one yard on first down. So they're in second along. We always criticize coaches or throwing the ball and second along and and then third along gets even longer than Garoppolo scrambles for a couple yards the next drive in two thousand seventeen. They're on the ball. I down for five yards. Maybe you argue should have run the bond second and five that seems to be the play. People are upset about. But you actually watch the Datsun. That play or you watch the tape in that play. If you're so inclined designers had George cadle matched up against Terrell suggs. WHO's an edge rusher whose approximately forty seven years old in pass coverage? That's a great match up. You WanNa throw that matchup and there was knocked down on the next play. kiddle was opened again. The GAROPPOLO didn't see him in three recovered receiver and then on the following drive their down. They pretty much have to do the football after the two minute warning even ran the ball at the start that drive so I don't think the play calling was particularly egregious. I think China has lost this game instead with his decision making before the Fourth Quarter indicate he was coaching like he wanted to keep this game. Close instead of trying trying to score points in the first half I mentioned earlier the niners stopped the cheese. One forty eight to go. They have three times the end of the first half so they can call all the time I get the ball back and have time to dry instead. They let the clock run. She's punch they run the ball once. Let the clock run even further. Only then did they try and start moving. The ball and Garoppolo hit a twenty yard completion and then a perfect forty two yard pass kill. That was called back for what I think. It's fair to say the the questionable offensive pass interference call. What a catchy made right over Daniel Sorensen to get the forty niners field though rain? There's GonNa be a hold on the forty niners honors right here and it's only a three man rush and it's Frank Clark. Did I miss her happy to go into halftime at ten ten ten but they have been really effective. Moving the ball in profits outside of that one Garoppolo interception that to me is too conservative. That's something I I found interesting about Shanahan for awhile now bill. He's undeniably one of the most forward thinking coaches in the NFL when it comes to play calling but he does sometimes have a tendency to manage the game a little conservatively. I was reminded of the niners game against the Ravens this year at the end of the first half he mismanaged Spanish clock and they ended up having to try for a long field goal and lost twenty two seventeen they also have the second fewest attempts at converting fourth downs in the NFL this season than even through three quarters with their potent rushing attack. They didn't attempt many. Yeah absolutely I mean even through out the playoffs. This year there were moments. Were Shannahan kicked field goals or was conservative in moments. Where you'd figure hey you're rushing? Offense looks incredible. Why don't you run the football here when the packers and the Vikings can't can't stop you but it didn't come back to bite him because he wasn't playing the Kansas City chiefs in the second half of this game the niners ravaging seven point six yards per play on offense? Offense Shanahan shows to kick a field goal and fourth in two from the Kansas City. Twenty four yard line with the game tied. It was an awful call at the time knowing looks worse. Now you have to keep scoring in those moments because there's always a chance that Patrick mahomes is suddenly going to get hot and become Patrick Mahomes and you want to have as many points as as possible before that happens We saw that with the Texans. Were they feel go to make it which one nothing right or or something in that range and then of course they were down before halftime in that game. I don't know that is the difference in this game. Of course the chiefs did win by eleven but one of those touchdowns was a pretty much garbage time. Score by Damian Williams Shanahan Shanahan manages that first half situation and the fourth in two differently. This game is totally different late in the fourth quarter. And it's especially galling because Andy Reid feed his clock management his decision making was a punchline for years and years and years analytics. Andy did you got aggressive with two key. fourth-quarter Earth quarter decisions early in the game. He was facing a fourth and one from the San Francisco. Five yard line down three nothing. He even sent his goal unit out to tie the game during injury-time out there and then he changed his mind but the offense back on the field. They scored a touchdown two plays later on the next drive. He converted another fourth and one in the red zone. Andy Reid suddenly figured it out. It was such a a wonderful heartwarming thing to see and it was the difference in this game. It with Shannahan I mean I think he is a absolute flu playcalling genius and a lot of ways. But we saw this with Sean mcvay last year or Sean McVeigh was a genius but also very conservative when it came to his decision making and it came back to bite him in a close game last year and it came back to Bite Callahan today bill. I was watching from home of course so when I read on twitter that Andy was sending out the field goal unit I tweeted. I'm not not mad. I'm just disappointed. I like to think he read my tweet. And then changed his mind and while we're talking about eighty read or Analytic Sandy. Let's in prison for a bit. I mean he's one of the greatest coaches of all time. I don't think he needed to Lombardi trophy to prove that but just to do that. I mean it just. It puts all doubt. Assad he's going to be listed as one of the all-time great coaches in history whenever he wants to be done which is not anytime soon is widely beloved throughout the NFL and everyone knows how extensive his impact has been both on the game of football and on coaches and executives throughout the league. How would you say this Super Bowl in his legacy to me? So you know. It's the last thing on his resume for the hall of Fame Right. I I think he wasn't hall of Famer Anyway. But now even if you're a hater you can't deny that. Andy Reid is one of the most most important coaches in. NFL history has changed in his image since he took over as head head coach but doesn't mean Hawaiian shirts a lot of the time but people thought he was crazy when he took over his eagles head coach because he threw the ball about sixty percent of the time that was way more the league average now the entire league there was about sixty percent of the time he built the eagles into a perennial contender and a super bowl winning organization when they won with a head coach coach. who was his protege and a quarterback Nick foles who he convinced not to retire now? He's wondering what the chiefs he seventh. NFL history in regular season wins ends. He's an integral part of the NFL. Over the last twenty years I mean he's overshadowed by Bill Belichick and no. He's not bill belichick. Nobody is but this is one of the best coaches coaches in. NFL history. Now you can't deny Andy Reid he's going to get his due.

"On third and ten later in the a fourth quarter at midfield manual sanders was opened by a step and a half on a deep host. And Jimmy. Garoppolo missed the throat. Hit that throw. It's probably the game winning touchdown instead instead he missed the throw on third down took a sack on fourth down and the chiefs scored a couple of plays later to seal the game bill all all week long on all of the various debate shows we have been asked if you put the ball in Jimmy Garoppolo hands. Can you win the game for you after the Game Game Kyle. Shanahan was asked about his quarterbacks performance and he sounded kind of lukewarm. You see the tape opined out more but Playwright it does this game change your perception of Jimmy Garoppolo at all. I don't think it changes it. As much as just reinforces it in terms of working stands in the tears. NFL quarterbacks that's right. I mean throughout the postseason. We've seen guys like Kirk cousins and Ryan Tannehill who looked great when their offense is running effectively and they could throw off of play action when they had to throw to catch up and back in a game they were not able to take over. Garoppolo is really good for most of this game even with that one interception he was fantastic. Yeah I thought until the fourth quarter but then even at the same time. It's pretty telling the couch. Shanahan didn't want to try and move the ball with newly a full two minute drive opportunity before halftime. I think Jimmy Garoppolo is sort of what we saw. He's limited. He has the upside. Where when the offense is moving the ball and other ways as he can contribute to that? But you don't WanNa have to put the game on his shoulders and it's totally crazy but it's worth mentioning because it's fun. The niners could get out of Jimmy Garoppolo contract this offseason with virtually no dead money a free agent by the narrow. Tom Brady uh who decided to draw attention to himself. During Super Bowl Week has possibly leaving the Patriots. He grew up as a forty niners fan. The China's I would say it's fair to say better rosters in the Patriots at this point. I mean there's up as point zero zero zero one percent chance that's happening but Jimmy Garoppolo hits that throw to manual sanders it zero percent chance because it's not as percent chance it's at least worth mentioning but there's every possibility tiny kyw any possibility. But if you're Kyle Shanahan and you feel that way about Jimmy Garoppolo you might consider talking. Tom Brady and sauces. Hulu is headquartered in California. Such a truly truly thing for you to bring up. Well speaking of trolling after the break. Let's let's talk about Kyle Shanahan Super Bowl record and whether he deserves criticism for how this game.

"Throughout the game you and I were messaging and we were both perplexed by what we were seeing from a homes. It was his I game with multiple interceptions since two thousand eighteen. It was only the second time all season bill that he had not thrown a passing touchdown through three quarters. Order's simply put. He did not look like Patrick Mahomes. He looked rattled and he looked rattled. Because four niners pass rush was absolutely mauling in the chiefs offensive line. What changed in the fourth quarter? Yeah I mean if I'm going through my play-by-play notes that I took as I was watching the game. There were so many times through he. Goes I three quarters where I mentioned just to myself that have a homeless pass was fluttering or look bad. Coming out of his hand he taken a bunch of big hits earlier in the game and really for most of this game achieve stood very little on offense. There was a big chunk of his game where the only thing they were really doing was checking down to Damian Williams and the homes was scrambling on the place where the niners pass Ashok which have been very effective warrant disciplined in their rush lanes. And I think but honest pass rush just got tired late in the fourth quarter. They had a track record during the regular season. When you look at the numbers of struggling in the fourth quarter with a lead of ten points or less during the regular season ranked second in? QBR allowed during the first three quarters of the game. There were twenty seventh in the same category during the fourth quarter and I mentioned that on Scott Van Pelt show on Tuesday last week and I kind of figured it might be an issue hugh but I mean this is obviously a dramatic example of the pass rush leading down that we've seen all year well until that final quarter as you mentioned the niners offense spoke better than the chiefs offense now. I think we would have expected them to have more success. Running the ball given how both offenses had looked so far in the postseason but outside of the one interception Jimmy Garoppolo was out playing. Patrick mahomes which. I don't think anyone saw coming right. At one point point. He was eleven twelve off of play action. Even after the interception bill. When you thought Shanahan might take the ball out of his hands he was actually throwing it pretty well? How did the defense turn things around and start stopping him? The fourth quarter the pass rush. The niners lost seem to somehow make their way to the chiefs chiefs. We Nick Bosa in my opinion was the best player in this game for about three and a half quarters and there were the final eight minutes Chris Jones owns was the best player in the game. Knocked down two passes including a crucial second down pass pressure Garoppolo. A bunch of times Garoppolo just crumbled when the chiefs got pressure on him in. This game had thirty yards two sacks and two interceptions on the eleven times. He was pressured and on the whole in the fourth quarter. Her Jimmy Garoppolo was three of eleven thirty six yards with a garbage time interception and a sack on fourth down. I mean I it's probably too simplistic it probably doesn't come down on a strictly these two plays but if you want to tell the story this game in two plays on third and fifteen when his team absolutely needed a big play. Patrick mahomes hit a forty four yard pass tyreek Hill and that turned the game.

You know four years almost five years and I have yet to wake up saying I hate my fucking job so that makes me so happy to hear that you are a resilient bunch here in Kansas the city I absolutely have to say that I think is the theme of the day. I want you to just tell me you don't have to go into the Y.. But just what is what one food issue who is most pressing on your mind. These days Marisa for me as authenticity is the argument of authenticity. Drives me absolutely nuts. There's Salata perceptions of what especially with ethnic foods Mexican cuisine. There's a perception what that food should look like taste like in what it should cost. And it just drives me crazy up for X.. For example in Mexico I would say that every single state has a very very different Christine from the other I remember growing up and Sonoda then moving to Blah which is by Mexico City completely different type of food I would bring my little flour tortillas even then and my it would be my Pueblo. France would be an off like that thin and then I would tell them about Sonoran style tacos. Oh Yeah we have. We don't eat your little thin steak that Mexico City and Parola people eat like we'd like rib by you know like good steak and there were like. Yeah but we have moly okay. Well Yeah you win on the mall. We went on the steak Kinda thing and so I I think one of the things that it's just it's like what does a thin tissot really mean and we just need to be more open minded read about it really understand what takes the Labor where you're sourcing your product. There's a lot of different things that go. Go into account for me what I would like to really do this. Shift that paradigm of how people view specifically in the Mexican cuisine specifically cleaned United States with the current ratoric. So I think that there's a lot of cultural learning curves said I'd like to contribute and influence I I I watch Patty Jewish cut. I love her you know she. She's so sweet. PBS and she goes like she was is talking about you know a dish and seeing and she goes she and she flat out and midst. I had never seen it. I have never tasted in from Mexico. That's the thank thank people like us in Mexico. We do not have like you know like yeah you see the Kennedy Book Grape but every single casino so so regionally so different than even ourselves surprise ourselves oh how different it s and I would like to just explore it would be okay. Authenticity Meghan when give us one word. One sentence waste I struggle with the amount of people in our country. That can't eat particularly when we do events where there is so much excess for people paying so much money for the excess. I am in that business business but at the same time we recently at an event in Los Angeles last year and was a charity event for we'll Wolfgang puck and out of nowhere when we were setting up up the food. Bank arrived with boxes insulated boxes. I've never seen it before it. Charity Events and they drop them under everyone station and they said when you're done whatever's leftover goes in here and we take it to the food bank and I was like. Why can't Kansas City do this? Why doesn't every city do this when there's so much at the very least farmers market at East and the one that I'm in any way any extra product.

I looked growing up in Mexico. You get the shows like fifteen years later than everybody else and Jock Cousteau's if you're familiar with him you know his grave marine biologist and he was always on TV so alice obsessive. Being Jack Gustavo so I wanted to be an explorer pretty much. That's great. What's your your word? A hard one to figure out I would say committed. I've always finished a project if it doesn't have a list I'm a little. OCD about out doing it. But I've always wanted to make sure that the end results is what we have hopefully had talked about in the beginning. But I'm always committed to the project. The person the community whatever it is we're involved in. That's Great Beth. How about you? I would say adaptable. I mean I think I think that it kind of goes between adaptable and tenacious. And I think that for myself my path has it's been such a strange one and I never intended for the life that I have to be the one that I have and I'm also fully aware that your life can change in a matter. Her of seconds with the meeting of anyone or the turn of a coroner or a thought or a something that you listen to that changes everything and I think I think that if you're not stock in you're not ego driven and you're just present in your daily life. There's so much opportunity for everything everything to be so much better than you ever thought it could be in the same way that it could be so much worse and I think that the hi Lo is kind of the beautiful balance and and you have to be able to just kind of traverse it or you're sunk and if you can just figure out a way around it you're always going to be fine. It's nine at least that's what I tell myself. Chrissy might be a bad word but I kept on thinking about it. But it's scared 'cause I always think of the next step so if you're scared all the time you Kinda have to push yourself to not be scared all the time. I was a cubicle monkey for my first twenty years of my adult life and then I started the food truck with no food serving variance. So I think that fear kind of pushes me to kind of go outside the box which is an east coaster. I'm always in the box so oh to see things out of the box kind of pushes me. Do you know. Make other adventures in in my career in in my life. I think you need to hang out with Beth Moore and then scared won't be your word. I don't know back next year. And they ask you what your words Oregon. Okay so the next question is tell us about your company Organization restaurant and what you do for them and we'll start with you again. You can tell us about Tortilla Ria because it is on a major jour- trajectory right now. Yeah we're really good. We started two years ago. So Marissa. On the co-founder. No food background either. So you're okay. Hey I'm still in the tech world where you a cubicle monkey and have you ever called yourself that I have not call myself and said maybe cubicle cubicle entrepreneur because we used to trade you know like food and prank other people fake mouse and like prank people and stuff so so yeah it's okay. It's alright so we started two years ago and you know it's really interesting to hear. All the different stories here are search of food. Food was I was missing. My parents lost them. By the time I was twenty one and both of my parents got past and I Miss Mexico so much you know. My Dad was a lawyer but he loved to cook so a Chubby lawyer and I started cooking out of necessity like literally to try to you. Connect with my parents and s an adult. Now you know I was younger so it's like trying to go ahead and connect with them through food and with really weird so that's kind of how we started literally started at home and we're like. Oh maybe we could do this better if we get this type of equipment and then before we know it we had to your yet. I don't know how that happens but it happens and then you know. I'm a strategist by background. So we started building what the two year five year ten year plan. Go San San Right now. We're in two years so so we have stone. Ground Corn Tortillas all locally sourced midwestern corn and now our next one adventure is going to be stone and ground flour Tortillas Sonoran style and so we really have this vision of doing neighborhood deteriorate. There's not that many in Kansas City and we'd like to go ahead and make really approachable and that's where we are hopefully keep on growing but this is still your side hustle.

"Here you probably heard that earlier this week Amazon announced the location of its new headquarters, and it picked two places it pick northern Virginia and New York City and Amazon says each place is going to get about twenty five thousand jobs now that was the end of a very long bidding war there were dozens of states and cities that were courting Amazon by offering them billions of dollars in tax breaks and some other stuff too. There was this one town in Georgia. Where the mayor said, okay, we'll carve out three hundred and forty five acres will make a new town. And we will let Jeff Bezos be the mayor or the CEO or the king or whatever he wants. We. I think that may or was just joking, but a bunch of you wrote to us with the same question, which was basically, why do cities and states offer these huge tax incentives, and when they do it does it actually make sense is it in their interest back in two thousand and sixteen Stacey Vanik Smith. And I reported a story on why this happens. Kansas City is kind of a unique place. It's not one city. It's actually two and it split right down the middle. So that half of Kansas City is in Kansas and half of Kansas City is in Missouri. There is a road running down the middle of the city that divides it it is called state line road. We are in the car driving along state line road. So okay, Kansas is on the left Missouri's on right Kansas on left and also need to get in the left lane. All so the Phillips sixty six is in Missouri station in Missouri and the capital federal prairie village is in Kansas. Yeah. Bankas in Kansas. Yeah. People make a really big deal out of this line. We were hearing all the stuff about this huge rivalry between the two states. So we pulled off a state line road into a little shopping center on the Kansas side to see what people would say about it. What are people in Missouri light? Look you talking to one we we friendly. We got we all good to be around. And we are very very hard working people are people from Missouri. Like a little different than people from Kansas. Yes. Well. Yeah. Apparently people from Kansas are a little bit sloppy Rachelle Graham from Kansas says, we are not snobby what are people from Kansas. Like, I would say very down to earth helpful kind bik sense of community. We heard all kinds of things from both sides. People from Kansas told us people from Missouri city, folk they didn't have real country values and people from zuri told us people from Kansas were aloof and were bad drivers. We wanted to get to the bottom of this. And then there in the parking lot. We met Quinton Donnelly who broke it down for us.

He called you a nerd it's like back in high school. I know it's like the reader's versus the party kids. But look the rivalry between Kansas and Missouri goes beyond trash-talk while we were down there. People kept telling us there is a war going on along the border between Kansas and Missouri. And this war is over something, very important. It's a war over jobs. The two states are fighting to lurk companies to their state and not the one across state line road.
