Salvation Army Releases Racism Guide, Telling White Americans They're Racist

"Is right everything they touch. They ruin. And now you must have leftists in the hierarchy of Salvation army, shooting themselves in the foot over. Why would they do this? Why do organizations think this has to be done? I just wish I could understand the thinking the mindset the destructive nature, the impulse to say, hey, white people, apologize. And incidentally, the Salvation army has put out another statement sort of denying this. I've seen the study guide. They can try to spin it. I've read the guide. It does say we recognize that it's a profound profound challenge to sit on the hot seat and listen with an open heart to the herd and anger of the wounded. And incidentally, I don't want to be oblivious to people who are hurt by racism. I just don't think ripping down a statue fixes it. I don't think burning down at McDonald's is the answer. I don't think letting violent felons out under the streets is the solution. Call me crazy. And I don't want to apologize for something I have no control over. I shouldn't apologize. I shouldn't apologize for being white any more than somebody else should apologize for being black or Hispanic. Eurasian. Or whatever you are. Why do they do this?

Tuesday's Elections Are a 'Sonic Boom' Wake-up Call for Democrats

"First, I want to display a little bit of just the collapse. I want to just play a little bit of the video of the collapse of the Democrat regime in real time. I want to go to 56 and 57 in order, let's play cut 56 a little bit about the Virginia election results play cut 56. This is not going to go Republican. And this is a state that has not had a statewide Republican since 2009 about McDonald's governor at the Senate level at the gubernatorial level. The state was bright blue. Right. Yesterday. And now that's a next January state is going to be almost entirely in control of Republicans. And that's, you know, that's a bloodbath. And a state that Democrats are dominated, dominated for the past decade. And Republicans have taken control of the Virginia House of delegates 51 49 that no one saw coming. Cut 57, John Carl from ABC says this is a sonic boom of a wake-up call for Democrats, but they won't heed the wake-up call instead, you have Pelosi and Schumer say, oh, this is why we need to go spend these trillions of dollars we don't have on programs that are unpopular. Honestly, Democrats, I hope you guys try to implement CRT in every single school district across the country, not because it's good for the country, super damaging, but voters hate it so much that it's the greatest political gift to conservatives you could imagine. Play cut 57. George, this is a sonic boom of a wake-up call for Democrats. Biden won Virginia by ten points just a year ago. He won New Jersey by 16 points. And the big factor is the one you mentioned, Republicans vastly outperformed in the suburbs. That is precisely where the battle for control of Congress will be waged next year in the midterm election. And so all across the country, you are seeing this trend.

Who Is Curtis Sliwa? A Look at the GOP Mayoral Candidate’s Wild Ride in New York

"I grew up in New York City. I was born in Queens. I was in there into the 70s. We got out in the 70s, moved up the Danbury, Connecticut because the crime, the deterioration was unbelievable and we watched the New York news every night. It was unbelievable. We had mayor beam. We had it was just like a nightmare. And into this nightmare, steps a young guy named Curtis Lee tell the story Curtis. It was a night manager at McDonald's in The Bronx. The Bronx was burning down at the time and in the 70s alone a million people fled from New York City. The biggest exit is a population ever. And rightfully so, gangs arson property values plummeting quality of life dismal. So I decided, hey, you know, something they've removed the transit police from the subways at night because we were on the brink of a fiscal collapse. So they were laying off a lot of civil servants. I said, oh, I'll start patrolling with a group of my closes at that McDonald's. We will call the burger boys. And we started to patrol this one particularly train the number four train, which had been nicknamed by the right as the muggers expressed. I thought I get the congressional Medal of Honor. Eric, I couldn't have been more hopelessly wrong. The mayor at that time, Ed Koch vilified us, called us vigilante, said we were the hell's angels. The police unions were upset. They didn't want us there, because they figured their furloughed employees would never be brought back. And so within the first 13 years until Rudy Giuliani got elected mayor. I got arrested 76 times. I got wooden shampoos, concrete facials, attitude, no readjustments. It was whenever you elected or in a changed all that. I always gotta stop you because nobody knows what you just said. And it's the funniest stuff I've ever heard. You said you got wooden shampoos. You're talking about Billy clubs across the head from cops. Yes. Yes. And then concrete facials where the cop would say, Curtis, you see the curb down there as I was handcuffed. I said, yes, Sarge. And then you go, good. We're gonna have your forehead meet the curb bang. And you get a big lump in the front of your

Eric and Max McLean Discuss the Genius of C.S. Lewis

"Was that C. S. Lewis was such an amazing writer. I will compare him to Shakespeare because he wrote his own literature. And I don't mean he wrote literature. I mean, he created a literature, I guess chesterton is a little bit like that. They wrote in so many genres with such genius that they created a whole world. Chesterton was the inspiration for much of his apologetic works. But I would say it was McDonald was his inspiration for this fantasies. And also George Charles Williams as well. I just read that hideous strength, and that's a Charles Williams novel. I was going to say that idiot strengths, which is the third of his so called space trilogy which always annoys me. It's not released based children. I don't know what it is. But it's kind of like Narnia for adults. Well, it's pretty Narnia too. And it was pre Narnia. Yeah. Well, those books are just their genius. I mean, I find it to be one of the great it should be taught alongside Paradise lost in 20th in survey courses of 20th. I keep saying to him, survey courses of western literature. It's genius. It's a retelling of Paradise lost. It's incredible. And that hideous strength, what do you even make? It's prescient its prophetic. It is amazing when you read that you think we're living through this now, unfortunately. But a lot of people aren't familiar with those books, but per landra and that hideous strength. They're just out of the crazy, amazing books. But he wrote poems, some of them are great, one of my favorite ones is the one that I was there in 1998 when they put it up in Addison's walk behind the colleges behind Marlin college where he was, whereas rooms were and where I bumped into you one day. Do you remember that? Yes. You were this was before you gave you anyway. I remember bumping into you on Addison's walk. It's a beautiful place. It is where Lewis came to faith in some

'Is Atheism Dead?' Live From Freedom Night in America With Eric Metaxas

"On some college campus is not all of them, the atheists evangelize with more fervor than Christians do on those campuses. And so Eric, what do you think the reason for that is? It seems that atheists are not comfortable being alone. And this is always, I've always tried to challenge them, I say, if there's no, if you don't believe in an eternal life or a creator, you only got so much time left. You better live it up, right? What are you doing trying to convince people for that? By the way, just a reminder, I got a couple of these. You could steal these Eric because you're big on that, right? Is without God, there would be no atheists. Remember that. So and you got to think about that for a second without there would be no way. I'm pretty sure that C. S. Lewis or chesterton. That's chesterton. You can't fool me. Go ahead. It was actually my Uber driver, Eric, okay? So I watched the video where you got that from. The guy who gets his joke from the Uber driver. That was Chris. That was the guy who just passed away. You know, you know, I'm talking about. Norm McDonald's. Oh yeah, yeah, from SNL. He told a story, okay, never mind. Let's continue. I'm looking up the chapter that answers the question you're asking me. Keep going. But most important question when it comes to dealing with an atheist. And we all have atheists in our lives, which is do you hope you're wrong? It's the most important question. Which is if you ask someone who believes in atheism, do you hope you're wrong? Because if you're dealing with an honest person, no atheist actually hopes to believe in nothing. You actually want to believe there is no love. There is no justice. There is no eternal life. And so if an atheist says, you know what, I do hope I'm wrong. Then you're dealing with an honest broker. But if someone says, you know what? I want to be right more than what could possibly be good. Then that right there is a completely different conversation that you're having. At a very fundamental level, even every single atheist should want to be proven wrong. Every single I don't know where I heard that, but I know it's not original with you. But seriously, no, but the point is that that's exactly true. But the other thing and you just asked me this question and I want to answer this, it's in the book. I couldn't find it. But if you believe there's no God, okay? It follows logically. And this is the problem. People don't want to deal with this. They just want to say there's no God, and I can do what I want. No, no, no. If there is no God, there is absolutely no measure of good or evil. There's literally no meaning in the universe. Your life is no different than the life of a gnat. And if that's true, that life is utterly meaningless. The bleakness of that is

And as I was driving down Lebanon pipe the other day, I realized I just passed three KFCs within the span of about 5 miles. Straight line all on the same side of the street, three Kentucky fried chickens. Do we really need that many KFCs that close together in the same neighborhood now I realize there are three technically different suburbs, but at the same time do we need that many? How many more burger kings or McDonald's do we need? Yes, I realize we like having the convenience of something nearby around the corner, but could that be part of our problem too?

"Nuts is it's like the point of the damage is to be as big as possible to punish the company like if it was a mom and pop coffee place than like two point. Seven million is too much because they don't have that much money but if it's a giant corporation the only language a corporation understands is money so it has to be really large the entire purpose of the system that we set up in the nineteen sixties in the nineteen seventies. the sort of pact between regulators incorporations was that punitive damages and these kinds of lawsuits are how we're going to enforce good corporate behavior and you can't then turn around and be like all. It's unfair that we're having to pay these large fines. Basically now that. This is how we've decided to do this. You're just proposing impunity for corporations by reducing these damages right because like we would because we hate fellow citizens like getting some kind of a settlement like getting money that we see as unearned. You're more scared of that than we are. Scared of living in a world where corporations have no checks on them at all. Exactly we're we're we're putting the terrifying fear that somebody would get something. They don't deserve above our need to like have corporations that don't harm people widely right okay. So that's that's kind of the case. What interests me about this case is how it happened. How did this become this. Perfect titanic example of illegal system. Runamuck like how did it become shows up in a seinfeld episode right the lawsuit two thousand late night jokes exactly so i am going to send you the original ap story. This is the first america learned of this case. Oh boy so. This is published in august. Nineteen four just after the verdict comes out headline women burned by hat. Mcdonald's coffee gets two point nine million extra extra a woman who was scalded. When mcdonald's coffee spilled was awarded nearly two point nine million dollars or about today's coffee sales for the fast food cain lawyers priscilla liebeck who suffered third degree burns in the nineteen.

"Her lawyer reaches out to mcdonald's and says look let's settle this whole thing for ninety thousand dollars that's going to cover the medical bills pain and suffering the whole shebang. Let's do ninety thousand dollars. Mcdonald's ignores them so then they file a lawsuit on the eve of the lawsuit. He reaches out to mcdonald's again and says if you guys want this lawsuit to go away give us three hundred thousand dollars. Said a lot of court done. He says later that he would have settled for like one fifty like that was like his opening bid. Mcdonald's ignores him so in august of nineteen eighty-four they go to trial and it's a weird trial in that. There's no debate over the facts so stella is like mcdonald. Your coffee is way too hot to drink and mcdonald's like yes. Mcdonald's is like stella you spilled coffee on yourself and still has like yes So the legal question is basically. Is this coffee defective. Like are they selling a harmful product. I feel like there's a basic kind of ideological question here to maybe of like. Do corporations have the right to give boiling hot liquid to seniors right. And if they can. Should they. And i say mcdonald's is represented by pennywise the dancing clown friend. I mean this is the thing that was one of the things that comes at trial is at. Mcdonald's has settled seven hundred cases of severe burns. Why not just crank down the just like twenty degrees. I feel like would help a lot. And then one of their corporate executive people says like they're saying like why do you keep the coffee just like why. Why do you have this grave. Danger all your restaurants. And he's like that's far from the biggest danger.

"As Marsha Chatwin explained McDonald's corporation set a precedent in Cleveland fifty years ago that it would not take a big role in community development. They did not want other African American activist groups to believe that they would be given those concessions I also think that they just really believed that that was the responsibility of individual franchise owners to use their profits as they saw fit and to connect to the community. Already burdened black franchise owners have had to pick up the slack. What they're doing is essentially stepping up and saying well. We're business. People often wealthier than the communities that we serve. We have a social responsibility, but with responsibility we are exposed to the ways that there is an uneasy relationship between corporate success and the ability for communities to get their basic needs met. A few days after Kate. Story was published in December McDonald's did announce it was creating a new executive position to address franchisee diversity, and we asked several of these franchisees to speak with us for the story. None of them would talk on the record. There's this feeling among some McDonalds from corporate leaders down to individual franchise owners that many issue should be handled internally. And McDonald says it regularly meets and talks openly with members of the Black McDonald's operators association. The idea of being a family is still very very central at McDonald's in so many things that you read internal documents. They refer to each other as a family, so I think that some franchisees do not want to see McDonald's negative press over things like this, because even if they feel like they're being treated unfairly. They feel like they're in this community. That is stronger together. For some block Franchisees McDonald's is not the problem. A lot of the issues. Impacting McDonald's franchises are not unique to McDonald's at all. It's just systematic racism. Owning and running McDonald's restaurant was seen by some black communities as a way to build money and power. It was a means to an end, but on its own. It's not enough. Is it too much to expect business and watt capitalism to be solution to economic injustice. It makes no sense to me again. Marsha challenge businesses are in the service of enriching themselves and their owners full stop. Society should be in the interest of taking care of its people. When we reached out to McDonald's about the story, the company said the Chatwin Book is quote, not an accurate representation of McDonald's past and current initiatives to create a diverse an equitable community for our Franchisees, employees and customers. The company highlighted its efforts to recruit more diverse franchisees and corporate employees, and it's ongoing program to help two million, unemployed and underemployed young people get jobs. It also acknowledged quote. We understand we still have work to do. And? It's true that plenty of black franchisees have also invested time and money in their communities and made positive contributions from jobs to after school programs to sponsoring neighborhood sports teams just think of what chat saw at her McDonald's when she was growing up, but any evaluation of the success and failure of black capitalism and McDonald's also west to take into account other very significant consequences whether it's the health of communities whether it's the wages of workers whether it's the exacerbation of social inequality. All of this comes at a very high price Cana franchise like McDonald's be a tool for combating racial injustice. Know what it can do is be a place where people generate wealth, and then use that wealth to try to help solve some problems, but they will never see the extinction of those problems and so. The root cause of why they're so many challenges, and why frankly black business people are under so much pressure to perform not just for themselves, but for entire communities they will never.

"In McDonald's history. McDonald's executive sat across the table from the members of operation. Black Unity Near. Stoke stood by to facilitate. Facilitate people were armed. People brought guns to this meeting in case got to explosives, but this point Cleveland's white franchise owners wanted out their businesses were being crushed by the boycott, and they were done with being pulled into contentious civil rights disputes for McDonald's. However, it wasn't so easy. The company knew how it would look to give in to threats and intimidation and someone like a hill in particular, plus he was making demands that could set a precedent for McDonald's to. To have a role in local communities that it just didn't one operation black unity demands. We'd get to pick the FRANCHISEES. We get a fee for our I. Guess Search Firm Capacities. We get a pool. We get a card. We get money invested in a community trust for us a McDonald's. No, no, no on every point there stokes was caught in the middle, his white Democratic primary opponent was using the protest as a scare tactic asking what local business would be. Be Next to fall victim to the threats of black activism, if stokes wanted to live up to his promise of unity and get reelected. He had to get this settled. Meanwhile, members of Operation Black Unity turned on Hill, accusing him of extortion he'll lost control of the movement he had started now. All of this posturing and back, and forth is happening in the press as well as the national newspapers pick up the strange story of McDonald's boycott and Carl Stokes McDonald's. McDonald's was keeping an option warm. This entire time turns out behind the scenes. McDonald's and mayor stokes had been in talks with another community group one that would take over the restaurants that white franchise owners were giving up and that this group would be responsible for any community development projects like swimming pools parks that meant McDonald's was off the hook. Oh and it never have to negotiate with David Hill ever again. The day before mayor stokes primary election. He arranged in. In. Agreement with McDonald's and operation black unity to end the boycott stokes was reelected, and while hill did not get control of the restaurants. They were being run by members of the black community. I guess the question is. How do we measure success? In this situation? The boycott did expose black economic power in Cleveland in a time where African Americans were for the majority living in poverty. It did show that there was a difference having a black mayor, even though it. It did not solve all the problems. The Cleveland Boycott was covered in papers across the country, and the eventual agreement demonstrated to activate that local black communities could have a voice in negotiating with an international corporation about how it operates in their neighborhoods. Even for that brief moment. They really did impact. McDonald's and so I think the takeaway from those experiences were then deployed in different cities as they were challenging. What did it mean for McDonald's to be such a presence? In the years after Cleveland more and more black entrepreneurs around the country took over existing McDonald's and open new ones for fifty years. They've tested. If black capitalism can improve the lives of black, Americans in their communities wasn't enough. That's when we come back. We're back. In nineteen, sixty nine Cleveland's black entrepreneurs got what they wanted. Ownership of local McDonald's franchises and marked a change in how the company would operate in black communities for years to come. Black capitalist hoped that McDonald's restaurants could help franchisees in several ways i. they'd let them become business owners next with the support of McDonald's businesses would become profitable, and then with that money, black franchisees could invest in their communities and thereby help other black people. It hasn't been that simple from your reporting and talking to people. How are black franchisees feeling about McDonald's corporate? I spoke with a lot of former franchisees. Who? Especially have very mixed and more negative feelings where they feel like they've been forced out. Basically that McDonald's put them in a situation where they could not win, they could not continue to save the company. K Taylor is a senior correspondent covering restaurants and retail for business insider. At the end of last year, she reported that many black franchisees were making significantly less than their white counterparts. She also found that in the last few years, the number of black-owned McDonald's has been falling out of the seventeen hundred people who own McDonald's restaurants fewer than two, hundred or black. That's down from over three hundred in two thousand seven people have been aware of. Of these issues for decades, and from Dr it kind of goes, through ebbs and flows where they feel that McDonald's is listening to them making some changes and then periods where they feel like McDonald's is ignoring the concerns. This goes all the way back to the nineteen seventies and in response, lack franchisees created a group to advocate on their behalf. The National Black McDonald's operators association over the years. Some of them have accused McDonald's of discrimination. More recently black franchisees have told Kate that they've faced obstacles on several fronts. I mean restaurants were not as financially accessible as they'd hoped for more than a million dollars to just open one location, so you have to be a millionaire several times over basically you are going to thrive in the McDonald's system at this point. Add to that in recent years. McDonald's corporate has demanded expensive tech upgrades and move towards a model where fewer franchisees own more restaurants. That's made it even harder for black. Americans to buy into the McDonald's system. Because African Americans in this country are less likely to have the generational wealth. They just aren't in the same position to. Invest millions of dollars as frequently as some white Franchisees have been in two thousand seventeen, the Federal Reserve released a report showing that on average black families net worth is fifteen percents that families. So getting a franchise has become more challenging, and that brings us to the second point that these restaurants would make black business owners money. Kate found that it's been difficult for them to make a prophet. Right McDonald's several told her that the company LTD which ones they're allowed to run and where they could open new restaurants. If you're in an area that is lower income, it can cost a lot more for security cost. So. That's something where you're paying more for security. You're paying more for insurance because of concerns related to that, and that just cuts into the bottom line. Current and former black franchisees told Kate Dave attempted to run restaurants in more affluent areas. One told her that working a corporate liaison he tried to help. A fellow Black Franchisee opened another store nearby. McDonald's basically told both franchisees that their new stories available. It just wasn't a possibility at that point. And then literally the same week McDonald's announced that there was going to be a white franchisee opening a store on the same street that the black Franchisee e had been trying to open the location on. CATES said that McDonald's declined to comment on this specific example being excluded from owning restaurants in higher income neighborhoods has financially hurt black franchisees to sum it up in the most basic way, black franchisees we're making about sixty eight thousand dollars less per store a month than the overall total or average franchisees overall that gap is more than double from what it was and twenty twelve win. Black Franchisees have spoken out about their concerns. Some told Kate. They've noticed strange corporate behavior like McDonald's employees showing up for unplanned inspections late on a Friday night once even Christmas Eve or getting written up for minor infractions like a torn piece of wallpaper and that could. Could lead to franchisees being penalized financially, or it could lead to them getting their stories takeaway mixed in with all of this fears that if black franchise owners are struggling financially, maybe even selling their restaurants, they won't invest in their local communities. Remember.

anything about this so I don't know yeah this is up in northern California the the McDonald's owner got so sick of having all the homeless people just crowding the sidewalk that they decided to one of the ways that they would do that is to get rid of them is by playing a bagpipe music and apparently the neighbors like that the first day but now at the neighbors are saying okay enough already we got to come up with something different we can't take any more the bagpipes if you've ever been to an Irish wedding man a little bit of bagpipes goes a long way in Irish or Scottish Irish the hours please go yeah now now there you go I was talking to my sons being in California yesterday's use take me the airport about the new the new stadium and what is done to the neighborhood four thousand people are homeless just because of what's happened around that new stadium you know that yeah I don't know I I haven't heard that number but what I will tell you is those people at this the area where that new stadium's going where the rams will play and the Chargers will play is it it was really a low income area it was terrible of a lot of crime it's where the LA riots broke out I know where it is that people go who were there well here's the benefit though all those people who have these little tiny shack houses are going to be really happy because once the stadium is done that area is going to be gentrified and redeveloped and all those people that have homes there are going to be very well off so it's a payday for them twenty one after the hour new rascal Flatts celebrating their twentieth anniversary with a farewell tour going out rascal Flatts farewell life is a highway tour during an appearance on the CBS yesterday so what do you think about that Jennifer I like it I love rascal Flatts you like a bag of their meeting there was a solid may be used yeah actually a fair while I don't think they're really love I don't think they're really leaving I think they've been together a really long time I think they'll probably get back together again they are all family members and so that's probably go off and do their own thing and come back around again it's hard for me to believe that they would be all done as an aside as what you're on a plane very back last night as a couple of episodic dangers of highways in small towns in America's been produced by National Geographic what a wonderful tour it was has sat there for almost two hours watching at the various cities in the stories of highways around our country and it really made me think it underscores the fact of life in America is a highway all about cars the history of our country with the automobile being out front really interesting so anyway meanwhile back to rascal Flatts so they aren't saying goodbye they've been back and forth they were asked in the same goodbye for good they didn't answer the question weeks and they need a little push they've been kind of boring for a little while so they probably want a little press I think not okay well it could do it the according to with a said their release we may do it again some day collectively we're not going to sign some back it says remember you tour again we are still do love each other we probably make some music individual now and is due to a rascal Flatts promises a new music here is well the farewell tour kicks off in June

I got a little choked up as holy shit, even as an adult that was my favorite read I've ever seen now. Every fucking celebrity and in media of God. It's disgraceful your they go to the White House.

Don't let the media Buchan bring this down. This was awesome. Awesome. Yeah. What we wanted?

Because you're like, oh, I had what I was supposed to have. And you don't like all you want to do is go to bath. Exactly. And you never go back to the it's usually setup buffet style at all of this ship, right? And then you you never really want to go back. Oh, food is good. But it's not greats. Really fulfilling very cruise ship. Yeah. Exactly. One hundred percents in to this point again. Because a lot of these I've been to a lot of these fucking things the Dallas Cowboys right perfect example, they played the New York Giants and a Sunday night game. If you weeks back I was there and then I had field passes. And I got to eat with the players in the team afterwards. Same buff as same bullshit whites. Tablecloths whatever this Jerry Jones riches owner in the NFL, and I'm not bagging on him whatsoever. That's just what all of these things. Are you know what I'm saying? You're cooking for masses. It's not gonna be amazing. Yeah. So it's kind of your stock standard. I'll be two pieces of prime rib, and then I'll in full roasted potatoes with not the flavor that I wanted them to have or percent that you've got a dunk come in some form of sour cream or butter to try to get them to where you want fell. We're on a diet. Not no not at all. Not even. Diet aside? I'm trying to set this back for college kids. Right. So when I was there men after a game time to that shakeout. We were probably I don't think we sat down dinner till midnight because the game was at eight so three hour game players have shower finish off my tab, my bar tab, obviously. Because that was that was one. Go up there. And you're like, oh, it's sweet if there was fucking big Macs and all that shit laid out. It would be amazing. It would eliminate the having to go out on the way home. If people always served that kind of shit, then I'd be good.

Saying that the reason he saying that both of his kids have developmental problems. And he saying that the sun is because Catherine was using drugs and alcohol, but there's no proof of that yet, which they could have taken a blood sample or whatever improved it, and they're saying that the daughter has problems because Catherine ignored her as a child. So both unless there's proof are just well, I think that's a hard thing to judge because in less your diagnosed with it, right? When you come out, you know, like, I know with people they take their weight for the baby too, and they can tell if there's marijuana in the system alcohol or heroin, and then they of course, a crack baby has to go through withdrawals. So obviously, they when they came out there is no record of that. But could there be developmental issues that start to develop at as three to four year old? Yeah. Absolutely. I mean when you hear about like a Russian orphan that was never picked up. Up. They have they act very different than they're finally adopted. Doesn't matter that you're hugging them every day if they weren't hugged it. I'm not saying she did this. But like just because you were talking nosed at that age just like anything else autism, or whatever, you don't know until you see it. So if they're having issues, I think it's going to be hard to point the finger. But that sad if they're having issues, well, also, but she was known to have a drug problem prior to her son being born. So and Thomas always wanted to keep custody and kind of keep her away. So wouldn't they have tested him right off the bat when he was born. Yes. And I have interviewed some people, and I've talked to some people off the record. And there is unfortunately, there is some question about if they are both delayed, which again being delayed doesn't mean you can't catch up a friend who adopted a baby that in the child was very delayed. You know? And there's people who have delayed speech my nephew had to take classes v. Eighteen he's doing great. He's on ours classes, so you can be delayed and fix it. And and it doesn't necessarily mean that you were drinking or doing drugs or whatever. So, but it's just super ugly. Yeah. He's just pulling out. And I just wonder what how much they're gonna show of that on the show because you know, that is something that makes sense southern charm kind of stand out as that there's guys and girls on it. It's not just women. There's different dating. But then there's us whole ugly side of cocaine use in custody battles and now rape charges. And I know he's not going to be a part of it. And then he had this girlfriend. Ashley who everyone hated. She really came off terribly. And they broke up an every other week. It's they're they're back on each other's Instagram acting like they're love or somebody. That's a fan of the show witnesses them out at some bar. So who who knows? But I mean, if my daughter was Ashley, I would not want her dating Thomas Ravin, all and I wouldn't want her taking on the role of. Stepmother in such a cesspool of situation to step into. I mean, even if even like Ashley at all. And you hater that can't be an easy position to be in trying to co parent with a woman who your boyfriend is trying to ruin her life, currently, so very we'll see what happens with that. Juicy scoop with Heather McDonald is brought to you by I can't believe it's not butter. Let's be honest. If there was a category for best performance in an ongoing food drama. Most of us would be up for that award. Think about how many times do we conduct an internal dialogue before. And after eating something indulgent. I mean, anytime I see a breadbasket my brain Q suspenseful dramatic music. Don't don't but eating doesn't have to be so dramatic like most things in life. It's all about finding balance. And I can't believe it's not butter cuts the food travel without sacrificing taste food. Guilt. Takes the joy out of eating and life is too short for that have.

So who is my guest today while my guest is Miller Browning? Miller's message quite simple, yet profound do work that matters to honor the heroes in our everyday lives. Miller Browning is fifteen years old. He came up with the motto do work that matters. When he was only eleven years old Miller was inspired by the hard work. He saw his great-grandfather Miller and his great uncle Eddie had put into their farm Miller love visiting them and helping out and wanted to do something to honor their dedication, patients and hard work. Miller's great-grandfather has since passed. But the farm itself remains one of. Miller's favorite of places the message, which Miller hold is important is the reminder that working hard to help others is important do work. That matters is Miller's way of honoring people that work hard to benefit the lives of others the heroes deck store. Farmers military. Firefighters police EMS and the list continues. Miller owns the trademark to the phrase do work that matters. He's an official licensee of the US air force in US coastguard.

Happy new year. Welcome to living fearlessly with Lisa McDonald? How are you? My friend on great. How are you? I'm really excited. This is been in the works for a little time yet. And I just want to say for people who follow the show, they would know that. You're my second youngest guest ever. Be showcased in the four years of my doing this. And the fact that people of your age, you know, and I don't wanna lockdown age specifically, but it really speaks to the testament of younger generation really getting behind the awakening of the conscious spirit. You know, people going, okay. There's more to life than in your if we focus on your age than playing video games or playing with kids on the street, all of which is important place super important, but you have a bit of an old soul. Miller in the fact that you look at things a little bit more substantially than people your age, you look at things a little bit more in depth and introspectively. And I think I also as a parent wanna plug out to your parents have done a super phenomenal job in raising you and bringing you up with your core value system. So, you know, we cleared RIC clearly described this in the intro who your mentors where you're tengible mentors your great grandfather. And you're on call. Why don't you elaborate a little bit about that? What was it specifically about the work ethic and working on a farm specifically that spoke to you you thought while these are really hard working individuals, regardless of the fact that I'm related to them. What what was the message and all of that for you obviously day in day out working from sundresses sunset, and they just put their whole life and forming, and we obviously wouldn't have food without farmers, and I really wanted to just show how much believe in them. And how much I about up to them with the shirt. And I thought you know, there's so many other occupations that are the heroes. You know, the people that don't get the recognition deserve just didn't feel like, you know, farmers. They don't get the recognition. They deserved. So when to make sure for them, and then I took it to another level spread out different occupations, and is just turned into a really big thing for me the fall via fall end. So your great-grandfather alive at the time. Some of you being eleven years old this all coming to fruition for you. No, ma'am. He was not L K. But do you believe he's with you in spirit is very clear on what it is. You're doing what you're indifferent to do to make impact with other people most can't tastic. And so let's talk about the farm in proximity to you. How often do you get to go there? Geographically as close. It's about three and a half hours away. We go on special occasions that angst being sometimes of we'll go up for eastern. So it's really a we go stay with my grandma. My mom's side, and we unloaded. Visit. It's one of my favorite places to be the forms really close to my grandma's house, and my great grandma still alive. So she lives on arm. So it's biz her and she really puts the hammer on and you were in stuff. And she's always got some task for me. It's it's fun. And then it's worth of bunk lead, he working on the combine or just running around doing their things. It's always a blast. And I love it fantastic. And so what is it that the farm? What are the crops specifically what grown corn we soybeans? Who's got a big pumpkin packed? Sometimes there's a lot of sheep on the farm. They're not who sheep anymore. You just changed away from will sheep. I don't know the exact acreage, but it's it's a lot Aigars and do you. I mean, you're obviously a very introspective person. And obviously when you would go to the farm, you you'd be reminded of many a memory that you share with your great grandfather Miller do right? You know, do you do right? When you're on the farm. Do you get a little bit of your envisioning for what you want to do to expand upon the trademark expand upon the t shirts and other platforms and vehicles. You can use to impart your message, we issues on the farm. I don't usually write on the form. But it definitely sparks a lot of imagination things where something to go. Amazing. Well, I know that I've got a t shirt on the way, and I'm super excited and grateful for that that certainly wasn't necessary. But I can't wait for that to arrive in my mailbox. So I wanna say thank you to your you and your family for thinking of me in that regard. And I want to hear a little bit more about the t shirts, and where people can find your t-shirts where people can order t-shirts. So do it matters dot US is our website. Look that up it'll take to it. We have all our shirts, we have onto t shirts. I have a new sweatshirt just came out with we have animal rescue all the armed services. We have postcard that we have officialising see four. We just got official licensee air force to obviously a Belise EM as we have. The sorry. The hats. Okay, just came out, mugs and little coffee, months stuff. And we're trying to expand people want us to do more. But we only do similize like we just came out with linemen and people wants to truck drivers and stuff, but I can only go so far some UN's I get evenly got so much bandwidth. Right. But obviously, that's indicative of your growth in your momentum. When you know that something is really taking off. It's you know, it's resonating

Who's a virgin who he's been writing to this entire time who he says he's really in love with and the moms like high the bombs in on it. The white girl wife still has no idea as a whole nother girlfriend and the producers I just can't believe they found this three. So I think I love after lockup. I mean is is a goal mind for reality TV because the people are desperate. They have nothing to lose the opposite of real housewives. Like, they can't find good real housewives anymore because everyone sees that. You're you're exposing yourself to the world. Your husband gets criticized the church to check out your money, you end up in prison like Judy cheese.
