Made and what. The situation on the ground is more just simply reveals that it was as haphazard inside as it looked on the outside and they don't really know what's going on but i think it's important for the american public to understand that i definitely important for congress understand that to put the proper amount of pressure on the administration and at least be able to talk about this in a real way.

They're not getting nearly the clicks they're telling you for instance radio that's where it's at and that is true Oh boy I'm going to get to this story. Great Story in The Wall Street Journal over the weekend. The end of America's era of military primacy written by military guy. Oh absolutely WHO's at the medicine here? I it's probably fairly obvious. As China's advanced arsenal grows the Pentagon must focus on emerging technologies not traditional weapons platforms. It was an an OP. Ed piece argument being made by You know a military expert In two thousand seventeen we had just left a briefing where we'd asked to arrange everyone in conversation about China's growing arsenal of their precision strike missiles there long range sensors the counter space capabilities. All this other stuff. Every senator was invited to the briefing about a dozen showed up because people born interested. I guess and they got a depressing dose of reality Pentagon officials in the Obama Administration. One named David Nick. I think I remember that person. spoke publicly last year saying when we do war games when we fight China or Russia the US military gets. It's ASS handed to it. We lose a LOT OF PEOPLE. We lose a lot of equipment. We usually fail to achieve our objective by preventing aggression Through projecting power. Wow you have the great. Crackdown giant protests going on Hong Kong. Right now making the salt more real. Yeah making we wouldn't lose award. It's not like we're getting. You know. We have to surrender and our part of China. Whatever but we would learn to speak Mandarin but we would not We would not prevent it a being so clearly dominant or Be Able to avoid losing a lot of men and material right and you know probably have to come to some sort of an agreement. Okay you get that island if this ends you know that sort of thing right yeah. Well that's clear. Yeah which is not the way you know. Most of us have in our mind about America. Well that's that's because as long as I've been alive and most people listening Ben Alive Right now we've been able to just avoid a war just out of we would just we'd just destroy you. We would lose nothing and you would be obliterated. Yao stay away. Yeah with some notable exceptions the whole limited warfare proportional thing anyway Maybe I'll get into that more coming up later. I'll tell you what I realized. This is unconstitutional. But I would love to see some sort of moratorium on congressman. Lobbying for unnecessary outdated weapons systems. Let's have you know. The generals are the joint chiefs and independent commission. Figure out what we really need to be spending on and just do that. So what does a human value human life worth? This has come up a lot in the last couple of weeks. People usually throwing it around like a like a weapon but some rhetorical win. Somebody talks about opening the economy. How many points on the Dow is worth one human life secretary of the Treasury And I think I think remember Mnuchin saying that's not a fair question Well there actually is a value. The value of statistical life that the government insurance companies never puts on a human life they use the ESL at most federal agencies developed over several decades. And it's about ten million dollars value of human life. Had No idea is worth that if a new regulations boost to myself esteem if a new regulation is estimated to avoid one death a year it will cost about ten million dollars and still make economic sense. Now I read this article in a minute. More interesting is that went along. The dilemma is how do you value reducing? The risk said this economist. At the think-tank is involved in this sort of thing Advisers studied the topic. The economists answer is to ask people what they think. A human life is worth and then observe the behavior on whether or not it lives up to because most people say Human life is the invite. You know you can't put a number go. We do put a number on it with our with our actions in the way we live. Economists use public opinion surveys on mortality. Risk they look at how much more dangerous jobs pay. They study. What. People are willing to spend for safety devices such as bike. The information is then all put together to try to come up with a number they. They calculate how many people are willing to obey for instance various speed limits. I mean we are kind of making a decision at that point. What we think you know life is worth and it'd probably be safer to drive the speed but I'm gonNA drive this speed right. I was running late this morning. I might speed limit was the limit of the engine in my car. I kid of course my friends in the law enforcement community. I would never do that. I think it's interesting. I got to forty and one MAX's out at one zero five and the other one will just keep going until the engine can't go anymore. Oh yeah yeah and I don't know why that is I mean it's got the one has a limiter on it though. The the engine clearly has more but the car won't allow itself to go any faster by the way forward. Is there any way to do something about that? A different chip or I will pass along. The e mails we will inevitably get. I was driving in Germany. I took my car to Germany over the weekend on the auto exact embarrassed but I did. They changed the laws or something no. They're both they're both the same year really interesting. I wonder is it the same model? No I wonder if one is. I mean for instance. My car that I commute in is kind of a bloated old man car It's like It's a rolling living room and it is not built it. I the handled. Well I call it a the whale because it handles like a whale and you would not want to be going very fast and cards just because you couldn't control it but in the right car place hundred but anyway so the government insurance companies have back up one hundred miles per hour when they When they calculate these things society apparently has come up with around ten million dollars the value of a life from the way we react on what we do safety wise. How much how much job has got to pay if it's this dangerous before we'll do it. Right they factor. All this in. It's interesting is that so interesting. Yeah we've we've made this determination without even realizing that we've made this determination ten million dollars. See I'd throw off all my principles for five. I mean I'd sell out to anybody for five million dollars so ten. Maybe I've been pricing myself too low. I figured no takers too high. But I don't know maybe I just need to find the right buyer like real estate. You're still alive in all these scenarios right now. I'm just saying well with five to ten million dollars okay. Okay so I would have to die to get the ten million. Oh all boys. So we're talking about my wife. Have that money so I suppose they have a numbers on there for what a leg is worth or an arm or that sort of stuff. Two Hundred Bucks. Right now are your what. Are you going to do it? But I I'll give you one hundred and seventy five for two of them because I think I deserve some quantity discount prices of your business. You can't have my arm. I don't care what you're offering.

Up One, senator ask this. How much does the Dow have to go up for one human life? You know that sort of thing. The government actually comes up with a number for that for how much you human life is worth I didn't know they compile, but that number for you.

It sounded like he had more rambling to do there. Let's not edit out too much of the rambling goodness difference. I think for the trump crowd is biden's going to do this like fifty times maybe honored times between now and the election where because he just? The way he talks especially now. It is the classic Gaffe in the definition. They use in DC where somebody actually says the truth out loud. Yeah, because that is just the truth, yeah, the We Democrats can count on nine out of ten black votes for the presidential election, so yeah, we turn our attention other where Hispanics by go either way agents. Who knows now getting your? Cheered we can count on the black votes. We don't worry about it right. So I do Kinda want to hear this? Because I didn't watch Fox News Sunday. This is Chris. Walls asking Joel Goldberg what they thought of it and. Here this. Would you agree that the the Biden remark was pretty calm. Yeah No, it was. It's precisely the kind of thing that a lot of Democrats are worried about Biden doing again and again on the campaign trail, regardless of the context of identity politics and blacks in the Democratic Party just his sort of in almost insecurity to have to take everything to eleven, and just a bit further than the facts or or rationality, sometimes allow makes a lot of people very very nervous about bite, and then the specifics of it is just. It's it's. It's perfect fodder for the people who want to heighten the tensions on the Democratic Party in all sorts of ways, and we're going to see more of this over the summer. So!

Ernest Midwestern former prosecutor clearly, not a socialist. The so boring. How can you hate it? Yeah? That's not a bad point either I still say there's roughly a one third chance, Biden, not the nominee Daviau, and who would it be and how would that happen? Nobody knows. The brokered convention.

No, we're not a militant anti massacres like me. All I am I'm happy when I see other people in masks. Not. Breathing on me doesn't bother me but it has definitely become a political symbol of the the whole trump didn't wear mask over the weekend Biden did wear a mask and that's the clear divide in how seriously they take this or whatever? but I want to get off on that topic I am confused when I see people in their car with their mascot at seem like a step to confuse. I feel like that's going too far. Who are you protecting I? but we missed a controversy because we are off on Friday. Yes, and Joe Biden the vice president. If you follow Cable News I realize, you've heard this already so hopefully we bring some interesting entertaining angle, too for it was, there will be mockery. It was heavily covered by your cable news channels mostly. Just your your. Non Trumpeting channel CNN almost covered it. Not at all they've. They almost left it completely out of the cupboard. Short of there I think they got beat up enough that they finally decided. They need to do address it a little bit but anyway. Joe Biden was on a a radio show that I'm unaware, but apparently has a lot of political heft in the black world. Yes, it does indeed. It's a well known show. In Club, or the morning, crew, or the flakes or something, the breakfast club based out of new. York good name, Hillary made some headlines when she ran on their during her campaign. It's become kind of a an obligatory obligatory stop for a lot of Democratic candidates and Joe Biden was there. Listen. You gotta come see when you come to New York. VP BY A. Long Way until November. We got more questions. You got more questions. Turn if you have a problem figuring out where you're for mayor, trump and you ain't black. It don't have nothing to do with trump. It has to do with the fact I. Want something for my community. I would love to see. My record man I extended the voting racks, twenty five years I have a record that is second to none then up. ACP's endorse me every time I've run the world. Come on, take a look at the REC. Wow, the if you can't decide between me and trump, you ain't black is getting a lot of attention, but his angry blast there at the end about how dare you I? It's not good politics. I know this makes me bad talk. Show host, but I'm not sure if I heard that that would even stood out to me that whole. You Ain't black Oh my God. It would to me. I don't think you would have. But so look before we get to that. I just want to throw this in That, N., double ACP thing, they've put out a statement saying we have not endorsed Joe Biden. Yeah never endorsed you by wolves. I think that's worth point, but anyway back to the black well, wait a second getting back to that CNN. When they finally did cover the the story edited that part out. Of the Biden quote! The N. double ACP thing so even when they admitted alright old senile, joe is said something completely unacceptable. They edited out the N. Double ACP. Thing, which is just I mean they're liars, professional liars both why I don't think it's a big deal. Then you can blast me. Way I'll make it all about you What would the people tried to turn it into a or did turn it into? I shouldn't use prejudicial terms. People turned it into or took it as he's saying you know as a race, you're there. Certainly you have to vote, yes. The Democratic Party is felt that way for decades and has expressed that message and every one hundred different ways, and both parties both parties knowing how black people are GonNa vote because nine out of ten black people vote Democrat for president every single time. They put that into their polling. So it's just it has been true. It is true. It's saying it out loud I. Guess You're not supposed to, but it's just. It's just what it is I think. Kanye West and you come out and you're a Republican. You get killed. Ride the black community right. Yeah, well. I think you're being cynical, though for a couple of wine, apparently being cynical about the black vote does vary somewhat. It's a fairly narrow band with the elections are often fairly close so it's. It's worth getting more of the Black Vote Oh. Yeah, getting eleven, percent is better than getting nine percent because it's a lot of people. Secondly I think one of the great failings of American politics. In last sixty seventy years has been consigning black America. Whatever that means because you know I hate a group. Any Group of people together has been consigning black America to what a lot of people are calling the government plantation of dependence and defeat and blame in the rest of it, and the Democratic Party has has subtly and cleverly pitched that plantation as a good thing, and I think it's incredibly important to individual human being's lives. Lives that they understand that those policies from from LBJ on have been disastrous for Black America I. Think this conversation is incredibly important. and Joe Biden went ahead, and he said it out loud y'all only get to vote one way to shut up and vote by what you're supposed to. Somewhat of the the premise of Charlemagne's line of questioning our Democrat have Democrats been taking the black vote for granted for too long absolutely. Yeah, so they're going to continue your a cynical man. You've given up on humanity, not me. It's absolutely worked. We'll get the black vote. No matter what we don't have to worry about. That has has worked for years I'M GONNA. Come in pander to you a little bit, but you. You look this man. You're busy, mind miraculous. Man What are you kidding me? Quest is four.

"lincoln" Discussed on Historical Figures
"Abraham Lincoln was born on February twelfth eighteen nine in a small log cabin in Hardin County County Kentucky. His mother and Father Thomas and Nancy Lincoln were humble illiterate farmers. Lincoln's father was barely able to sign his name. He also oh had an older sister. Sarah Sarah and Abraham grew up on a farm where he learned to wield the axe help his father chop wood and carve a house in a farm out of the hardwood forest. Nothing in his humble beginnings would ever suggest he would rise to president of the United States. Lincoln attended school only intermittently because his health was required on the farm however he did learn how to read he developed a voracious appetite for books devouring as many as he could get his hands on. Tragedy struck the Lincoln home when at the tender age of nine years old his mother. Nancy died of milk sick. A disease likely caused caused by wild poison. The cows ingested Nancy's death gravely effected young Abraham Making Matters Worse. Nancy had acted as a buffer between Lincoln Gin and his father who did not get along very well with Nancy. Gone Abraham Thomas Lincoln clashed even more Abraham disdains the life of a backwoods woods farmer. He was also deeply bothered that he had to turn over any side wages to his father before he was of age so for example if he helped neighbor with work Thomas. Lincoln kept all of Abraham's earnings. Some speculate that his scorn for this law in part led to sympathy for slaves who were denied the fruits of their own labor. Adding to the contention was Lincoln's opinion of the old man who he saw as lazy and unintelligent his father reciprocated the feeling thinking linking Lincoln the Lazy One because he preferred reading over farmwork. Boy I done told you already to put that book down and get on out to the field them. Corns ain't picking themselves. Yes Paul Gimme that damn thing. Why don't ask the questions around here? I told you to hand it over now. Hand it over but it's mine Paul. He ain't doing no harm except making you lazy son of a bitch on my farm. That's not true. I do my share Pau. These books teach me so one day one day. What boy I can do something more than just sign my name? I ain't got no use for lazy dog on my farm and you know what I do too lazy dogs don't you. Lincoln didn't invite his father to his wedding. He didn't even make the eighty mile journey to visit his father on his deathbed despite his father's request if we can meet now it's doubtful whether it would not be more painful than pleasant in eighteen. Twenty eight Lincoln finally left the farm to work on the riverboat hauling freight which ran down the Ohio and Mississippi River to New Orleans. This was also as first exposure to large scale slavery and slave auctions. Two years after his riverboats stint Lincoln helped his family moved to Illinois in eighteen thirty one he settled in new Salem where he worked various jobs. As postmaster mill hand in a failed shopkeeper it was here he met Ann Rutledge. There's been debate over whether or not. They were lovers up until the nineteen nineties. It was disputed because there were not many references to an Lincoln's letters however academia now accepts reminiscence based I oral history many of those accounts from locals in new Salem testified in the nature of their relationship and are now widely accepted. An rutledge was a beautiful young. A young woman with Auburn hair and striking Blue Eyes Lincoln met and when he was twenty two and she was eighteen like Lincoln. She also came from a humble background. But Lincoln was poor and lacked training of a trade making him unsuitable for marriage so a wealthier gentleman John. McNamara Korda Dan and they were set to be married McNamara left to New York to attend to family matters never returned ultimately abandoning his fiancee. Now our prominent bachelor in new Salem Lincoln allegedly proposed and she accepted on the condition that I she and her engagement to McNamara in person mm-hmm but tragedy struck before that was possible when Ann came down with typhoid fever and passed away in eighteen eighteen. Thirty five the epitaph on a new headstone at an original burial place reads where Lincoln wept. After Ann's death. Lincoln slipped into a deep depression. Some historians suggest to even suffered a nervous breakdown. Depression what he referred to as the HYPO short for hypochondria area is a condition. Lincoln battled his entire life. Thankfully it wasn't severe enough to impede his ambition. Lincoln's I I tumble in. Politics was as supporter of the whig. Party the WHIG party was founded as an anti-establishment response to the Democratic President Andrew Jackson it was accused of being a party for the elite and wealthy but voting records showed in addition to being pro business. It favored social justice in the education in prison. Systems Lincoln ran for state legislature as a whig candidate in eighteen. Thirty two but lost. This defeat didn't stop him though he ran again in eighteen thirty four by this time formerly a member of the whig party and one and again in eighteen thirty six thirty eight and forty during this time period. He met Mary Harry Todd. I've faced the well educated high society woman. Although Lincoln was awkward with women and the two came from opposite sides of life. They became engaged engaged in eighteen. Forty where is he. He's coming.

Basically, everyone who's involved in the confederacy was quickly allowed back into the union government and you can bet they hadn't changed their minds on slavery. Racism, of course wouldn't have changed entirely under Lincoln, but he likely would have done something to prevent this from happening. African Americans badly needed to support in the government in the years, following the civil war, and they didn't really get that with Andrew Johnson. They would have had that with Lincoln, but we'll never know how much Lincoln would've built accomplish because you know some dumb pretty boy actor. Fucked that up before dying.

This story will detail one of the first lady men to perform in the cedar where he would later kill Lincoln and Lincoln years before his death did watch booth perform their Washington performing that opening play. Lincoln Lincoln wants a lot of shows Ford dealers less than a mile from the White House and that I play both portrayed a Greek sculptor in costume making marble statues come to life, Lincoln wash the play from the presidential box.

I aound because that never happened but bucks out of an amazing came at just feed on me booth. Take your handsome face. I don't know why Scottish rate there, put it on my nipple. Did you only Scottish? I didn't until I just did voice. So one point, no, during the performance booth was said to have shaken his finger and Lincoln stretching. As he delivered a line of kind of pointed dialogue, Lincoln sister-in-law was sitting there in the same presidential box and turn to him and said, Mr. Lincoln looks as if that's meant for you and the president replied, he does look at me pretty sharp or no. He does look pretty sharp in me, doesn't he? So they had a little interaction. You know, a long time before these assignation on another occasion, Lincoln son, tad is young son tad's booth performed.

He wants to take a break now from acting to actually fight in the war on behalf the confederates, but he promises mother. He wouldn't join the army and he hated himself for making that promise. He wrote to his mother towards the war's end. I have begun to d- myself a coward and to despise my own existence. Here he is playing the roles of brave men who fight for their beliefs on stage battling other actors and mock sword, play while other men, his age. Are actually risking their lives for what they believe in. So he comes up with a way to redeem himself in his mind for not joining the fight earlier. He comes up with a plan to sell replica swords, give the proceeds to confederate cause and then he finds out. There's not a big market for swords you over estimated it. But there is a big market for tiny plastic swords that people use to stick through MARTINI olives or hold little meat and cheese bundles together an appetizer trace.
