As you know, an awful lot of Americans are facing Ah, fall where their kids do not go back to government run bricks and mortar schools. They will do some on line or distance learning. I don't see the problem with that. In fact, I think having heard from parents who are doing that with their kids right now, and they were doing it even before China virus arrived, it'll actually be a better solution. The problem is the government run public schools populated with union represented teachers. They say. We don't want to do this because they realize that one's parents and students and taxpayers are given a choice. They may decide that the choice of distance learning work so well for their family that their kids never go back. To a bricks and mortar government school. And that's bad news for all those union represented teachers. Well, one teacher, the admission I mentioned a moment ago. This is the one that this teacher in Philadelphia and I have a feeling there's more than one out there Fact I'd love to get a call from one of them. He worries out loud.

You may have one or another child come home and say, Boy, the teacher went on a rant about Donald Trump today or went on a rant about black lives matter or went on a rant about sexuality. And the parent hears it. But there's no way to prove it. What happens when parents can actually hear the lessons? Frankly, I'd be happy if parents were able to hear all of the lessons that their kids are subject to. And if they find a reason to object to it, then, for goodness sake, call the school board called the superintendent and to say You can't do that to my kids. Parents should have the right to do that.

I completely understand you being like this culture is a little bit like confining and it's not really cool to minorities and gay people and like this is really fucked up and we need to change this and people should be able to do whatever they want to but coming up in in today's culture it's like. I don't know if people realize how much there are like. It's like you're not allowed to teach values to children like none and I just think that's fucking really bad like really really bad and I will send and having a kid is really what changed my mind and I know there are a lot of Libertarians. Will say like oh well you can feel that way about your kid. But you shouldn't like express this to other people how they raise their kids or anything. But it's like well would. I wouldn't that be more of a Dick move if I had a kid and I was like what's so important to me. Is that you instill some values in her. You guys go be Heathens like my dad as that so I just think it's like and they I think gene may not realize the extent to which kids are being propaganda as today with some really next level crazy shut that I think a lot of times. Their parents aren't even aware of and like again. If if you're going to say you know as Libertarians. Of course we can you know listen. I was like a left-wing guy for a long time. I'm like on a podcast called Legion of skanks. I've lived a very fucking wildlife like I don't I know I. I hear it from the other perspective. But if you're going to say as a libertarian. You know a business. Businesses have the right to discriminate. But if we do that if they do that I have a right to say that. You're a disgusting person you know you're discussing business and I'll never go there again. It's like okay. Well why do I not have a right to also say like I don't know maybe like Jello shouldn't be grabbing her posey and pole dancing at an event that's for children like I don't know do I not have a right to say that that like maybe you know okay? Sure take control of your kids and don't watch if you don't want to but also maybe this is just kind of not the best thing and like I definitely don't want my daughter to see that mom just. I'm just giving my take atheism thing. It's a yeah I don't know that's You know I changed my mind on that so left gene obscene and the atheist Jewish community. That's the fucking last question both cake you guys so much. I very very much. You guys coming out I have to. I have to duck in the back for like five minutes and call my wife and check in and then I'm GonNa go downstairs and I'll take pictures. Hang out have a drink with you guys. If you want to do that and then we'll be back here shortly for the stand up comedy show guys Robbie the Fire Bernstein. Everybody give yourselves around of applause thank you..

"Wealth? I'm wealthy unsuccessful. I'm GONNA help you guys out. So let's move on. That isn't what have been in. Isn't it fucking disturbing? That Rob Burns just gave better answer the Michael Bloomberg. Thank you debate available for higher. I'm actually shaken to my core that that was the substantially better answer than what he was able to give his was like. Well they signed it so you know I got what I was looking for. Why would we go back and look at that? Wow He really you've got robbed should be. Yeah it's fucking strategists and he'll work for cheap. Trust me all right. Who's got the next question here? Young lady in the back I want to know. Do you think that the Libertarian Party will ever learn their culture? A lesson especially in light of the tweets about the Ohio state incident with Caitlin Bet. Oh yeah okay so by the way I mean I so did not even care to comment on that fucking situation until the Libertarian Party. Had to send out that dumb ass fucking tweet and now that I'm like a member of the Party and I'm like a one of the biggest recruiters and stuff and all that it's like I almost feel this obligation to when they say something that retarded to be like. Hey this is not what we're four you know. Now I don't know I really don't know so this okay. So so this caitlyn Bennett check. I don't I don't know anything about her except that she was the Ken. State gun girl. That's only know about her and I think she's associated with that liberty. Hang out page and I only really know about them because I think a year ago. They put me on a top ten list of most influential Libertarians. And so I was like these guys seem awesome. You know they have great taste. I can tell you that much right now and and I know. Tj who used to work there who hung out with the institute and stuff and he's a good guy. And so I don't really know that much about him but the and a lot of people telling me like they suck and she sucks and it's like I don't know man whatever okay. So maybe they do so. Stop following them or I don't care but she does this thing where she goes to college campuses and she does try to like create. These like you know kind of like potentially viral videos. You know she'll ask these lefties questions and whatever. It's not my thing to do that. But there's room for that and I would. I think there is some value for anyone. Listening was like well. She's horrible because XYZ fine. I'm saying I don't know I don't care whatever I'm not looking at her like she's the person I don't I don't know her but there was this fucking video of like a mob of college students. I mean I don't know. I watched the video like a few hundred college students surrounding her screaming. Interface throwing drinks and toilet paper at. Are they folk in blocked her entrance to her car for a bit screaming? And your fucking face. And then when she got in the car they just pegged drinks at the car and wouldn't let the car move for a while. That's all the video shows and the fucking libertarian. Party like I don't know who tweeted this out. It was Sarawak but I don't now it could have been anyone from nick SAR Walk to SAR. Walk Nick Saux assistant following directions from but so he tweets out like you ever write to go. Say you're something along the lines of you have a right to say your but they also have the freedom of assembly and protest or something like that and like come on man to fucking outrageous for me. Now feel however you feel about her. This is a young woman who's being assaulted intimidated and having their property. Vandalized by a mob for the Libertarian. Party promptly saying nothing they don't have to fuck and defend our but don't come out and defend these fucking outrageous college students these fucking privileged fucks. You're at a fucking college and a first world country and this is how you fuck an act to a young woman who why because she asked questions. You don't like I mean like I'm sorry. Get the fuck out. So they said that and and I I tweeted back just being like this is insane and then I argued with a whole bunch of supposed libertarians. Who were telling me that throwing a drink at somebody is not an assault. Which legal either wrong like. I mean like it's depending on the state it's assault or battery but yeah it's it's worse than assault in many states. But yeah what you think you can just throw drinks at people and then arguing with some really dumb people on twitter. Hit like say that but like really dumb arguments where they were like. Oh they threw a drink so should kids get arrested every time they have a water balloon. Fight or something like that. And you're like well I mean if you walk down the street and just pay some lady with a water balloon. Yeah that might be a little bit of an issue like do you really WanNa live in a world where you're just allowed to throw your drink at somebody like of course not and you know. I mean if somebody threw a drink at my wife I would. I would beat them unrecognizable. So I don't know like what how you think this is. Okay bless you and anyway so but your question about the Libertarian Party. You know it doesn't change anything about the reflection. The Libertarian Party is what it is right. Now that's the whole reason. The Me Fox exists because certain people need a fucking go won't name any names and the and the whole process from the beginning at least as I understand it Michael King. Correct me if I'm wrong but the whole process is that it is. You have the third biggest political party in the country with ballot access on fifty states with a lot of infrastructure. It bears the name Libertarian and they claim to stand for the Non Aggression Principle. That's worth fighting to make something out of and so yeah it sucks there are aspects of it that suck right now but. I think it's worth fighting for like a lot of other options in town. They're the only game so that's worth. It is far as the Libertarian Party. Learning their cultural lesson. I don't think they have to like I. Don't you know we're everything I've been saying about like? Learning cultural lesson is like the Libertarians. I think need to realize is that. There is the legal political philosophy of libertarianism. And if we stick to that we are right about everything like we are dead on right but if you cross over into the cultural world and then go and also because legally. You should have a right to do whatever you want. I also support you doing whatever you want. That's fucking stupid. It's a recipe for a terrible society. That will never support the legal order and it makes this whole thing completely. Unmarketable like no but just to be clear. The Libertarian Party is concerned with the political. And the legal. They don't ever have to cross over into this cultural area like Ron. Paul didn't really do that. I mean you knew who he was who he was. But Ron Paul was never out there like preaching family values and I don't know that that was his role to do that and like that's that's fine. I know a lot of really good people who disagree with me on this stuff. And that's fine and Libertarian Party. I think should be a place for people who believe in the non aggression principle and private property rights. They can feel however they want to culturally that that'd be my pick. I'd rather have a candidate that could actually appeal to a lot of people. That's the issue. All right next okay. Mic microsystems side information. Hold on to the might wait for the Mike Question. These people enjoy the incumbent's advantage and that's pretty much all they have but one thing that should give us all hope. Is that about one third of the existing membership of the Libertarian. Party came in in two thousand nineteen. And that's when the Mikhalkov started hitting hitting their stride. That's when you became active. That's when Tom Woods became active. That's when Hornberger rain. That's when Scott. Horton started doing his thing in recruiting people in. So if there's anybody that hasn't taken the leap yet if you WANNA see that cultural change it's up to you and it's to us and we can do it and it's not you're not alone it's already underway and it's as simple as that you just gotTa show up all right very good. I'm with you man. That's the prince can pitch baby who else has Touched upon it over the years..

"Here but you know what I'm saying. I was fucking was learning something right. There preach preach Robbie the fire. This is we we. Are we start for a cheese stick on the way here already? We already got a sandwich. See this is the fucking thing they go where and now no matter what I say half you stupid Phillies fucking people are going to hate me. 'cause I we went to PAT's and I know now all the Gino's people see my grandfather built Gino's from the ground it's listen. Do you see how you fucking trigger these people and listen. I'm such a peacekeeper when I showed up. I said let's eat both. That's what I said. I said we can live in a country where sandwich shops are equal. And you can have two launches at once and I said. I'm sorry rob. I'm not taking three hour drive home with your cheese steaks farts. Stink up the whole Goddamn car. We can choose a place and get cheese steaks there and then come back. I know I'm sorry. I knew whatever answer I gave was gonNA offend. Have of the room. I know fuck in Philly people. Okay I know if you're cut you bleed Wa wa or whatever I know the fucking deal. Some of my best friends are from Philly. By the way coincidence they're all garbage but happens to be a coincidence all absolute garbage people. But I'm sure cowboys suck there. Sure no problem so anywhere Roger Stone but you are right rob you are right and here's okay. So here's what I love about the Bernie Sanders a moment that we're having here because this is the only hope that I see right now. Is that like did you guys see. I was talking about this a couple podcast ago. Did you see when Chuck Todd called Bernie Sanders Supporters Nazis? That's a beautiful beautiful moment because my guess is going to be that a whole lot of you in this room have heard the term not see or Nazi apologist or something. Like you know because you're like if you're like against universal healthcare that makes you a Nazi now and then you do the dumb thing where you're like. The Nazis had universal healthcare. And they're like that's what a Nazi would like. There's no there's no reasoning with these people. Okay don't even attempt to prove to them like a certain point. You just have to like go like I know right. It's up. We're all undercover NAP. But so everybody gets like people call. I've I've been called a Nazi on twitter and I'm like I am a Jewish anarchist. And they're like that's exactly who the Nazis would pick. They can't be dissuaded of their Nazi talking point. And so but now the Bernie rose are getting it. You're a fucking Nazi to. Oh look at that. Isn't that amazing. You guys give because a lot of them are fucking hypocrites because they were in on that. Shit right they were calling people Nazis. But here's my advice. Don't even throw it in their face right now. Don't even throw just let them sit there and if anything like isn't that so unfair that you would call someone a Nazi just because you disagree with them. Bright well right but I'm saying but use this as a moment to just be like hey. Isn't that crazy that CNN? Or I'm sorry in this. Msnbc WE'LL call you a Nazi just because you support a candidate who is not the candidate that they like. That seems really unfair. You know and let them sit. Here's all I. This is what I want them to realize. Right is that the shit rob was saying about how the deep state and all those guys in the media turned on trump. Now they're all turning on Bernie to and that's a moment for a lot of left-wing people. Look there's a lot of left wing people who might be teetering on supporting Bernie or not maybe like Elizabeth Warren supporters type people. You know and they may have gone with Warren or like Mayor Pete or someone like that over Bernie but even they might see where they go. I don't really think Bernie. Supporters are Nazis. You know what I mean. And then they can be like. Wow that's a little fucked up that because this guy's winning now the whole system turns against him because at this point all you can fuck and hope for is that everyone starts seeing like look. I don't know if I could convince everyone to be a fucking anti-capitalist half my focus audience of this show. I haven't even been able to convince to be and our capitalist. I'm still getting for. I've been doing this show for fucking eight years and I still get a question about how the fuck in you know. Like how would we get roads Wa wa or whatever in an an cat society? There's still like these little thing you know and like okay fine so maybe. I can't convince you to be an end cap but this is how I've built my audience at the show is that I can convince you beyond a shadow of a doubt that this whole system is fucking bullshit. That's what I can fuck in convince you can prosecute that case at to a point that you can't even question it. That's kind of my niche. That's what I figured out the secret to my fucking success is I can just fuck in place. Cnn and be like they're obviously full of Shit and like that. So that's the beautiful moment. Is that maybe some of these Bernie? Supporters are fucking realizing that and once you realize that the whole system is full of Shit. Maybe the next step would be. Hey why don't you try to achieve all your goals without going through the fucking system and what's really more the system then the federal government. So maybe if you know. They're never going to give you universal health care. I'm all I'm saying. Is there will be opportunities with Bernie Sanders nomination and even a Bernie Sanders presidency? Like once fucking Bernie Sanders gets in. He's not gonNA fucking pass any of this shit that he's fucking running on 'cause we don't and there's a thing a lot of right wingers and Libertarians. Get wrong a lot too. We don't live in a socialist society and a lot of people think it's like some secret communist plot or something like that. None of that Shit's happening. We only GonNa Socialist William Communist country. We live in a fucking fascist corporatist country. That's the game. They don't fuck in wants socialism. That's the fucking enemy of fascism. They'd fucking fight a war to make sure you think Hillary Clinton wants redistribution of fucking wealth or something like that any real scale. They claim there for that. And then they have a state that redistributes more wealth to them. You know what I'm saying like it's not so they fight for Vulcan big business. That's what it's all about the state big business partnership and these guys fucking scare them so just all say is just. Don't take this moment to shit on fucking Bernie Sanders. Once he gets the nomination go for it for the next few weeks route hard for the democratic establishment to fuck and collapse. Because that's that is good for all of us there. If there's nothing else I'll say look the fucking this is this is why. I am vote for him or anything like that. But this is why I rooted for trump to beat Jeb Bush because the however you feel about politics the Bush family dynasty deserved to die like they deserve to.

"Right or is it the guy who's fucking approaching you from behind with a wet nose like a dog is that the guy who's probably gonNA be your nominee? I don't know who do you think the odds favor. But she's she's sitting there and I'm like who. Who Do you think can win this thing? And she's like you know I think Bloomberg may be still has a shot and it's like you're so desperate that you're looking for a fucking billionaire Republican to be your gut like that's how much you can't stand that Bernie Sanders is taking this shit from you and I did something amazing about it and I was saying I was like she goes. Well I think Bernie Sanders is going to have a really tough time getting moderate Democrats to support him and I was like okay. How about Michael Bloomberg? GotTa throw the blacks up against the wall. How's he going to appeal to the woke left? Like how's that going to work out for you? And she goes. It's probably going to be a struggle And I was like okay. You're coming around slowly. And then she was like it might go to the convention and you know basically. I mean she didn't says they could just take it from him at the convention. Which if you remember. This is one of my favorite moments in the history of politics was when they were talking about. Donald Trump in two thousand sixteen and the Republicans started saying this. They were flirting with the idea of. We're going to change the rules at the convention and take the nomination away from Donald Trump and say whatever you want to about Donald Trump you know as an idiot or whatever but he's got a real like instinct like a genius political instinct. Okay like Donald Trump. There's something fucking to him. Don't downplay his they're like you can. It's easy to look at him and be like he's a buffoon. But this is a guy who you know ran a billion dollar company and then he wrote a book and it was like a number one bestseller and then he had a TV show and it was the number one show in television and then he dipped his toe into politics and on his first try became president of United States of America. And then I know like people who are like Donald Trump's an idiot and I'm like Dude you make twenty two thousand dollars a year show a little bit of respect. How he's doing a little better than you. But so they were flirting with changing the rules and taking it away from Donald Trump and do remember what Donald Trump said. Yes that's it they'll be riots in the streets that was Donald Trump's that is how he checkmated the system like he was like. I'll just get with Bernie you'll be fucking dance circles or something you know Bernie was like there will be hacky sack in the streets though a second gay parade there but the trump thing was it was like okay you have like bankers and think tanks and the CIA and like all these other things he's like. You know what I have I have fucking fear yes-men by the millions and yeah with guns with guns and Donald Trump courts. The tough people you ever noticed that like whoever the tough group is he always goes for them. Like what you remember when you talk about cops and it would be like you know. The problem is when you push their head down before they get in the car slam into the car. Yeah cops what are you guys. Tough with guns. I love you know. Play the military. It always be like miners and like roofers. Like everyone who's fucking tough. Donald trump like courts them and then basically the the the orange was like Holy Shit. Donald Trump has all the tough men and like Jeb. Bush has all the NERDS. We're not GONNA win this fight. And they just backed off and they fucking gave it to him and Bernie is like the question's GonNa be is Bernie going to really be able. Does he have the balls to fuck and be like? My people will fucking riot now as rob pointed out. It'll be a different riot more colorful than the last. But he could fuck and take this shit and if he does what a what a wonderful world we live in where it's going to be Bernie Sanders versus Donald Trump. And then. Here's what you're going to watch because Donald Trump has long been compromised and I know a Lotta people listen to the show. Don't like that trump supporters. But whether he's like in on it or not I don't fucking now but everyone's gotten what they fucking want out of. Donald trump there was no revolution. That swamp isn't fucking drained. Its swampy is ever have a wall. That's bullshit now. Rob Actually lost a wall. His his apartment is now wide open. That's how bad drums done for Rob Bernstein. Since he's been in. He took wall rob. But here's what you're going to see the same way you saw a lot of establishment. Republicans go and fucking support. Hillary Clinton. You're GONNA see the opposite now. You're gonNA see a whole bunch of establishment fucking Democrats go and support Donald Trump because as crazy as donald trump is now they got four years like okay swamp still intact and Bernie Sanders is insane enough that they've they're like Holy Shit. Here's the problem right. Obviously Bernie Sanders sucks is a socialist. I'm not a fan at all. But Bernie Sanders actually believes half the shit that he spews out of his mouth. And that's not what politicians are supposed to do like. They're not supposed to believe any of the stuff they say and then he's like everyone should have healthcare and there's like these spoken billionaires. That are like this motherfucker actually means that. And that's a no go. I don't think that's okay as I just think it's going to be a fucking shit show and it's going to be a lot of fun to watch and hopefully Michael Bloomberg loses two trillion dollars in the process. I Dunno at least we have some entertainment and if not if they take it from them at the convention. I'll tell you that will be fun too because there will be that convention will be a fucking Shit show. Do you remember the two thousand Sixteen Democratic National Convention like how that went down so basically? What happened was this very under-reported but day one of the convention was Bernie Sanders night like Bernie. Sanders spoke and all his people were they are and they were at the Democratic National Convention. Two Thousand Sixteen there. Every time Hillary Clinton's name was mentioned. They were booing. They were fucking. Do you remember this Sarah. Silverman came up and she was a Bernie Sanders supporter but even she was like the burning or bust. People are being ridiculous. You guys got to grow up because they kept doing Hillary Clinton and that's not great optics at your own convention when you're running for president to be getting booed and Hillary Clinton always has the best optics so this was a big change for her by the way. Hillary Clinton sucked so much that they had a whole day and they admitted this by the way. This wasn't like this isn't a conspiracy theory. They admitted that the goal of the Democratic National Convention was to quote humanize. Hillary Clinton look. How terrible candidate are you when you've been in the public eye for forty years and they're like Oh we're still not convinced that you're a human and then they were like we gotta work on that and then every speech would be you know like like you know? Bill Clinton would be like I fell in love with Hillary forty years ago just like humans do like it was always like a loose attempt to convince you that she's a normal person and you know. Chelsea was like she always finds time to skype with her grandchildren. Which by the way they really missed on that. That's not what humans do like human see their grandchildren in person but skyping with your grandchildren actually came awful. Lot more robotic. But anyway I digress. So it's Bernie Sanders night. And every there Hillary Clinton Sarah Silverman goes you Bernie. Airbus people are being ridiculous. Buddha shit out of her she gets booed off state like this. We never happens. Conventions are like raw fests. You know what I mean. Everybody cheers for the people there. They booed him the fuck off. Stage her offstage she got. I think Al Franken was with her. They booed him off. They get off stage there and it was like. Oh my God this is going to be a disaster for Hillary Clinton and then enter Michelle Obama and Michelle. Obama came out. And all those Bernie rose were booing and booing. But you know. They're like left-wing Beta males. So then they saw blackjack and they were like. I don't think we're allowed to Bihar. And Michelle. Obama came up and I will say the Most Beautiful Falcon speech that she's ever given in her life. I'm convinced Barack wrote it because I've seen her give speeches before and she sucks balls but all of a sudden she had this great fucking speech and it was beautiful. It really was a beautiful speech and she ended on this thing about how slaves built the White House and she woke up every morning and saw her two black daughters playing in the White House lawn. And how Far Lady? Yeah and there's like and then I saw a white Guy Paul saying like there and one over the fucking crowd and it calmed it all down and then it was like that was it like appeased the Bernie Bros. And then the next night. The Hillary Clinton people were like if anyone has any anyone even looks like they support Bernie Sanders. Do not let them in to this motherfucker. They controlled it from there on out but this year after strewing over in two thousand sixteen if they try to screw them over again in two thousand twenty. I don't I don't think they have any Michelle Obama's up their sleeves and these Bernie people are going to be fucking booing. The Shit's GONNA my point is it's going to be glorious to watch it all fall apart. And then Jacob. Hornberger swipes steals the president say..

"It is plus one hundred thousand. Those teams are the Baltimore. Orioles Detroit Tigers eggers Kansas City. Royals and Miami Marlins and you know for the uninitiated the non gamblers among us that means one hundred dollar bet pays out one hundred thousand dollars. Honestly you know what would be the most just major league baseball thing of all time would be the Miami marlins having one of those weird years where they're just the best team in baseball and they ended up winning the world series even though they were terrible last year and they've done before. Yeah that's what I'm thinking. They've gathered enough prospects. They've traded off every single good player. They have a couple random veteran guys who just kind of hanging around around yeah that money would go on the marlins traded the league. Mvp they traded their all star Catcher. They got rid of any semblance. Embolism starting pitching. They've endured tragedies. It's I mean this would be the perfect Miami marlins storyline that absolutely two hundred to one hundred thousand one hundred percent more. Interestingly thousand wins a million feel free to help vodka just write me the check now because that's that's a lock you feel that comfortable. I mean I mean Chris. You can't draw any better I think you can but I WANNA I WANNA talk quote a couple other things before we get out of here and that is what's going on in Philadelphia right now. I know you've got some really strong opinions on the Philadelphia Eagles in their quarterback Carson wentz Gregory Monday night football this week against the New York giants and familiar foe. And Eli Manning. Where's your head at our? We'll we'll beat the giants by two touchdowns. That's that's what is that about the dolphins. Yeah yeah yeah I know I did but this is how this works. They had to drive us so down into the ground and just completely kill any hope we had in the season just ruined our day. Ruler Thanksgiving weekend. My holiday was ruined. I didn't know what else to do with myself. After that game on Sunday I sat there and watched red zone or actually I think I watched sure whatever the game was on after I watched Sunday night football and watch Tom. Brady's career slowly but surely go up in flames. Yeah right though in the Super Bowl But this this this team is so annoying and it's just it's got to be so bothersome to fans that they will go out and they will dominate manning and his return game in essentially the beginning of the. Eli Retirement tour that I just. I don't see any other way. I I don't see any other way this game going. The defense is not gonNA play as bad again. There's this weird thing with Ryan Fitzpatrick. He just owns the eagles. He did it with Tampa last fear and yet again the year. Before I mean he's throwing touchdown passes seven teams. They show that grabbed seven. Different teams. Against the eagles thrown touchdown passes is with. The Guy just owns us. I think he'd beat us with the bills one year in a weird road game where we were up in buffalo and it should have been sure win fitzpatrick `let us up. Then like there's just this is the way the way fitzpatrick goes but this is different the eagles dominate. Eli Manning does not matter. The giants have almost no receivers The giants you know Saquon Saquon. You'll have to try to to hold him down but who knows. I just think that I can't I can't see going the other way. and Ed and the cowboys are gift wrapping you. The division their gift wrapping absolutely gift wrapping if they can't win this game if you can't beat the New York giants who you have. What two or three wins on the year? Four wins maybe are terrible basically terrible they have no defense. Can't tackle if you can't beat this team. I followed the franchise. Fo the franchise sell it. Make Larry Sell it moved to Arizona like they were going to do back in the late eighties. And just be done. Because you don't deserve to be a franchise if he loses escape perhaps a bit strong but the villa first of all I would say allies can be well rested. Of course. He's he's coming in fresh. And you talk about the giants not having any wide receivers. Well Doug Peterson said he would be comfortable. Oh playing with just three healthy wide receivers if Nelson Aguilar can't go and he is a game time. Expect a decision who is more leaning towards the won't won't go then we'll go direction so the eagles also don't have any healthy wide receivers. What what's the world record for for most double tight end tight end screenplays running one game I am? I think I'm so predictable screens if I see another other tight end screen. I've throw something through my tv like it's the art. It's so slow developing it's so awful it never works can. Can you just do what the Patriots did. When they had GRONK and that guy that murdered people like double tight rounding up the seems that can't cover both if this good if Goddard and hurts this good that plate? That plan should work almost every time just like it did with the Patriots. One quick comment to the estate of Aaron Hernandez allegedly killed people. By apology yes Scott that out there right now Barada actually. This line is come down a little Bids Bevanda now. Has the Eagles Monitor nine at home. How do you like that? What it started like ten ten I saw nine and a half a couple of days ago? I'm not confident. The Eagles can cover anything. They I think. Certainly not. Wide Receivers Tunnel Well Chris we have our discussions almost every game day during the game. While I'm frantically watching and just pouring over and you sending ending me hate-filled texts hate-filled towards no no no not filled towards the eagles. I like these mainly. Yeah well the cause something else might come across my desk as far as like. I don't know if the flyers are playing at the same time or if you know one of my many fantasy players decides to just not do anything it it becomes a whole thing. Yeah if any listeners. Wondering what it's like the text with Greg Crone. Doom and gloom is a way to describe it a lot of misspellings lot of negativity. Well you're a Philadelphia sports fan when what else could we expect and I joked because I him as well but Yeah this is interesting because it seems like a lot of money. He's been going on the giants. If this lines coming down. I Ah Yeah I see that big number and see the fact that they that. The Eagles couldn't beat the to win Miami Dolphins a week ago and say why should they be favored and You'll you'll have that logic it's time and time and time again and this'll be the game where the eagles win three touchdowns the covers easy which is actually what you thought. Last week when they went up fourteen ten nothing and I play on defense. Get a pick they go right down score a touchdown I mean you thought our taken this. It's not even going to be a contest and the Eagle somehow manage to blow it. But I don't think I just I don't see I don't think the giants have enough affi. Light hasn't been good. You know he is coming off like what would we say. Four or five straight. Buy Weeks Daniel Jones taken over probably longer than that. Yeah yeah it might be eight or nine so obviously it's going to be tough but it's a divisional game at home. You want to get food out of the stadium. There's no way they want to get out of the stadium for the fifth time this season. I just can't I just can't have well. This is the this is the Benson this thing right. When when he said like we're afraid to lose at home and and I get that completely Philadelphia sports fans do not put up with poor efforts? No you I mean if you play a tough game you lose like let's go back to the NFC divisional round. Game against the Falcons right. That came down to the last drive. The Falcons are driving. Julio Jones doesn't catch that pass in the end zone the game ends at that play. Klay goes the other way and Julio Jones catches that pass and saves the eagles franchise from pure doom. That's that's led from from the winning the super bowl that season but if he catches that pass sure they're going to be angry fans but they're not leaving disappointed in the team's effort. I mean that was a hard fought fought game with a backup quarterback where the eagles put it all out there in a game that nobody was picking them to win. Let's go back to that season after when Scott hurt. No one gave the eagles any any sort of chance and and if they lose that game on that play and it's an incredible catch booing eagles stadium. It's we're upset. We you know we clap. We acknowledge the good play. The technology effort bad luck because once got hurt and we move on. It's not this team. This year is totally different. Yeah well the giants are also totally different. They've lost eight in a row after a two to start there now too and ten with that number two pick in the the NFL draft and that is scary to me. Lucky that they they took Daniel Jones. Who looks like a competent quarterback but lucky? They took January Jones last last year. Instead of being in the race for Joe Borough who I think you know this guy looks like an nfl all pro in the future. So I'll take that the downside is of course that there there's that fellow Fella at Ohio state who I don't WanNa face for the next decade and chase young yet but we'll they there's there's debt precedents of hey. We drafted a quarterback last year. So we can't now this year it doesn't they like jim rope day like giants. There's no way they're going to embarrass going number. One unless the bengals completely screw through this up and Andy Dalton wins another game. The bengals will pick Joe. Borough hate say Chris. Andy Dalton wins today outright. Telling you pull it up. pull it off pulled up until you. This Brown's team this Brown's rounds team is the biggest myth. All I'm seeing all week is reports about Odell Beckham Junior. He's playing with a sports hernia. Now he's taught another coaches and sidelines just before during and after games it. It is over in Cleveland. My friend over and the nail in the coffin is handy doll winning a weird unnecessary road game and getting this bengals team to two wins and messing everything up for everybody's draft yet for the record. BAVADRA has the browns minus seven at home. Yeah that's that is A. That is a barking dog..

"Philadelphia was like most places in the United States that when every neighborhood had jim there were certain times Dolphins in the twenties thirties and forties until the war started where you could see boxing almost every night yeah so now we have maybe two cards a month that sounds pretty good but not when you were having four or five six the even sometimes had cards on Christmas Day we usually ESPEC- daytime card on Christmas boxing was huge part of the city but now even though we have two guys at hold titles Tevin farmer and Julian willies right or good fighters we don't get any publicity from the mainstream media it's very very difficult to Eagles well here's how a guy described it the lions get the carcass I you know and then the the buzzards and then the hyenas and the boxing comes in right after the hyenas I guess it's just pure finances venues blue horizons place that we're going to make a trip to one of the most Kony venues in the city with history was nine around the nineteen sixties yeah it goes all the way back the buildings built like eighteen fifty five something like that it was residence for rich people for a while but then the loyal order the Moose which was sort of a club I guess they took it over and it maintained that name till the sixties where a gentleman who was a promoter Jimmy toppy senior bought it and named it after the moving beyond the blue horizon the blue horizon basically stayed active on and off until it closed down the women that owned it the I worry behind in the taxes there are a lot of structural problems with the costs a Lotta money to fix up and it's now just a derelict building but the real hater was when the USA network had the Tuesday night fights and once a month they were at the blue horizon and the fights were really good it's a very small venue from the Balkan you could literally jump in the ring if you wanted to so you're right on top of the fighters I think that's one of the reasons they fight so hard there it became a national thing people would actually take their vacation to come to the blue horizon and the promoter sometime I'm sold out before he announced it was fighting so that was that was the glory days of the Blue Horizon when everybody knew about it you know it was named number one venue for boxing ring magazine how much I told him to do but no it is because it's very intimate so everybody that's a boxing fan in Philadelphia mourns the loss of the blue her eyes because there's so many fabulous ah practically everybody fought there and it was like a colder in of noise yelling instructions cursing it was a lot of fun yeah well a lot of fun Web's the first Jack Dempsey gene tunney that was way down in South Philadelphia right where the Sports Complex this is our now there's an indoor venue there's the football stadium in the baseball stadium somewhere on that acreage was stadium that was built we're finished in one thousand nine hundred twenty six sake and tenuell stadium because there was a big fair here with that name but as soon as the fair was over they change it municipal stadium but Yeah Jack Dempsey fault they're against gene tunney and gene tunney won the title and there were one hundred twenty thousand people there there was a little bit radio in those days but there was no TV so most of the money came from you know selling seats but as time went on television because he's there was close circuit and others pay per view we didn't need a stadium that for boxing but the last big fight there was rocky Marciano winning the heavyweight from Jersey Joe Walcott in Nineteen fifty two with a thirteenth round knockout Marciano came off the floor for the nasty right hand and you know there is over forty thousand people there which is a good crowd but you're not one hundred twenty thousand but when the rolling stones played there and the sixties they had one hundred thousand the same and the Beatles played there as well so it wasn't just boxing wasn't just football we says multipurpose stadium it was just too old and uh-huh so this is the only place I know in the world we're allowed to park in the middle of the street it's illegal for this is South Philly and they let you do it in south Philly because they all posted it and nobody would get elected if they went against that I think I think posse and is very bad yet this is it hi Paseo that's it yes overhead gang right here well worse going away we wanna go tweets here we're we're going to the second one I think we're just put it out to the blue horizon now let's best

But on this particular day, he was moved to tears. No. It's Russell the lawnmower guy. Maybe look through the window. And so me crying. So this gay guy listening to opera in crying, what could be more stereotypical than that. How embarrassing how shameful and then realized that's just what this movie is about being who you are. No matter who's watching no matter what they think and bringing them close to you anyway. And so he wrote a scene where Tom Hanks character living with aids puts on opera music for Denzel character, and he gets emotional. What does that do to the straight guy?

"In the eighties and nineties has now people went to the movies for a good time. They wanted their favorite stars and familiar relatable stories. Nobody ever said let's go out to see a movie about a gay guy with aids. There were a few movies like this at that time, but they were small movies made for niche our house audiences. Jonathan Demme and Ron nice water. Meet at one of their first story conferences over roast beef and tuna salad sandwiches at the legendary Nate now's deli in Beverly Hills run this movie will only work if it speaks to the broadest possible audience, the ones who are not gay and don't know anyone suffering from aids. I agree. We need to have a conversation with people who don't already think the way we do what about a familiar John rely a courtroom drama. Maybe maybe maybe a civil rights case where a lawyer from a prestigious firm is gay and HIV positive in his showing the symptoms of aids and is fired because of it. So he sues the firm, and is defended by a scrappy to bit attorney who can speak for the audience someone they can relate to a regular guy, someone of freight of gays afraid of aids someone who someone who changes and grows into the friend the partner the Le. Over the men was the best version of us. But what happens at the end Jonathan? What do you mean? The lawyer with aids does he does he live or die? Jonathan and Ron stared at each other over that table for a long time. This was nineteen ninety. There was no cure for aids. No, drug cocktail treatment that was years away. Both men. New one tragic fact aids was largely a terminal diagnosis. They would work versions of the story where the man living with aids Andrew Beckett survived. But this wasn't true. It wasn't real. It was cowardly. They would have to have the courage to make an art what they knew what happened in life. Andrew Beckett would have to die and the people around him, his friends and family would have to respond to that death. Here. Art, wasn't imitating life art was life. Philadelphia would be a story of David versus Goliath. It would be the first mainstream movie about homophobia, the I put a face on the aids crisis. The movie would begin shooting in October of nineteen ninety two three months after Ron's nephew, Kevin in Jonathan's friend, Juan died of aids. Philadelphia would be dedicated to them both. Jonathan Demme wanted to make a movie about the aids crisis to do what he could to help in the face of inconceivable suffering and pain today, thanks to films, like Philadelphia spreading awareness, and fostering empathy along with impactful alliances like Coke's long standing partnership with red the fight against aids is going strong worldwide aids related deaths have declined by about half since their peak in two thousand four together we have made so much progress. But there's still so much work to be done. Aids. Is completely preventable and treatable yet every day over twenty five hundred people die because of it and aids is still the leading cause of death.

I make films. Sometimes films can change the way people think the way they feel maybe maybe we can create an antidote to the terrible indifference in stilleto facing people with aids. What's even worse than aids is being shunned because of it being made to feel less than human. Maybe a movie can be the mirror to show us that people with aids deserve our sympathy our support and our love maybe a movie can illustrate the great courage. These victims display in the face of this horrendous Sepah Temic. Temic maybe a movie can lend this tragedy a human face one that we can all relate to gay and straight men and women sick and healthy. And maybe in some small way, we can help this country wake up to help these.
