Podcasts are available also to folks. Let’s go ahead and not forget about the rumble channel. I’ll leave the link below

00:00:20.820 –> 00:00:25.160
Go ahead and check out our rumble. I make videos and stuff like that on there

00:00:25.160 –> 00:00:29.640
I’ve actually been doing a lot of video production. We released them. We’ve been releasing a video every Wednesday

00:00:29.640 –> 00:00:33.420
I can’t promise every Wednesday, but I’ve been doing a video almost every Wednesday

00:00:33.420 –> 00:00:36.440
So go ahead in there and check that out a lot of cool videos

00:00:36.440 –> 00:00:43.000
I also live stream call of duty and some other video games. I play over the weekends. I stream them up there, too

00:00:43.000 –> 00:00:45.300
So if you guys are interested in that check it out

00:00:45.300 –> 00:00:48.440
Like I said, it’s just a cool little place where I get to do a lot of video and stuff like that

00:00:48.440 –> 00:00:53.640
Like I said, I don’t think it’s as big as the podcast is but like I said, it’s definitely a lot of fun

00:00:53.640 –> 00:00:55.640
Go ahead and check that out and also to there’s a lot of other

00:00:56.080 –> 00:01:01.680
Content creators up there and one thing that’s really nice is it’s we you know, it is rumble, you know

00:01:01.680 –> 00:01:05.580
You can kind of say what you want to which one and none of your stuff gets

00:01:05.580 –> 00:01:13.400
Taken down which I’ve had strikes on YouTube and stuff of that and what really upsets me is I just recently got an email the other

00:01:13.400 –> 00:01:18.880
Day from YouTube about a strike for an old podcast episode from a couple years ago. I just don’t understand

00:01:18.880 –> 00:01:21.400
I mean, I know they’re using AI and things like that

00:01:21.400 –> 00:01:27.120
But I just don’t understand how these things all of a sudden get get found after years of being up and it really wasn’t even that

00:01:27.120 –> 00:01:28.800

00:01:28.800 –> 00:01:34.120
But like I said, the other thing too about rumble is louder with crowders on there. He’s one of my favorite content creators

00:01:34.120 –> 00:01:38.520
I really like his morning show. It’s like 45 minutes. It’s a little longer if you’re part of rumble

00:01:38.520 –> 00:01:44.040
I have the the official you guys seen it on my Instagram and all that the louder with Crowder mug

00:01:44.040 –> 00:01:46.560
Like I said, I like his show. I really like what he does

00:01:46.560 –> 00:01:50.260
Some people don’t like him, but he is a kind of a controversial comedian

00:01:50.260 –> 00:01:53.920
But like I said, I find him pretty funny and I do enjoy his content. So

00:01:53.920 –> 00:01:57.120
And well, I’m glad he’s on rumble. He was for years

00:01:57.120 –> 00:02:01.440
He was with I think was C CR TV and like I said

00:02:01.440 –> 00:02:05.080
I never said I mean you could only get him if you subscribe to CR TV

00:02:05.080 –> 00:02:10.120
But now he’s like I said, he’s all for free on rumble and all that kind of stuff and it’s a great platform

00:02:10.120 –> 00:02:11.760
I really like rumble

00:02:11.760 –> 00:02:16.960
He’s went there a couple of big twitch streamers that got sick of the issues. They were having on twitch went there

00:02:17.240 –> 00:02:22.480
It’s a growing platform. They like 75 million people which is I mean a drop in the bucket if you think about how many

00:02:22.480 –> 00:02:26.580
YouTube has but you know, and I think you know, we talked about this a couple shows ago

00:02:26.580 –> 00:02:32.120
But I think it’s gonna be the future of the internet is gonna be segmented these little areas of the internet

00:02:32.120 –> 00:02:37.100
these little pockets of the internet where you find, you know content you want these different platforms and

00:02:37.100 –> 00:02:43.120
You know, you’re always gonna have somebody that’s different but they’re never gonna be as big as YouTube and it’s just you can’t YouTube’s like a

00:02:43.120 –> 00:02:47.560
Once-in-a-lifetime thing, especially if they’re with Google. So but yeah, like I said rumble

00:02:47.560 –> 00:02:52.060
I really like and I strongly advise you to check it out. Especially if you’re into freedom of speech and all that

00:02:52.060 –> 00:02:56.760
So speaking of things that I’ve been following pretty closely

00:02:56.760 –> 00:03:00.160
We always talk about prep being prepped and all that kind of stuff

00:03:00.160 –> 00:03:07.340
But apparently that that Japanese quake I feel bad for all those people. The death toll is up to 161 now

00:03:07.340 –> 00:03:11.360
it’s really a thousands of households still remain without

00:03:12.460 –> 00:03:14.060
without power

00:03:14.060 –> 00:03:18.400
You know, they got snow now. So that’s hindering the the effects of things and

00:03:18.400 –> 00:03:23.140
It’s just been an unbelievable thing over there. I mean, I know we’re over there helping out

00:03:23.140 –> 00:03:27.100
I mean, you know hate to say cuz I’m a lot of love. It’s a waste of more money over there

00:03:27.100 –> 00:03:30.260
But in this it it’s not like we’re fighting a war over there. We’re trying to help save lives

00:03:30.260 –> 00:03:33.520
People are people that have I mean, I feel so bad for them as people

00:03:33.520 –> 00:03:37.200
I mean, I mean you could be prepared as you want but I mean your house falls down on top of you

00:03:37.200 –> 00:03:39.680
you know, you can’t be prepared for that and

00:03:40.300 –> 00:03:45.120
They’re still trying like I said to get people and all that it’s shame. I really feel bad

00:03:45.120 –> 00:03:50.260
There hasn’t been too many aftershocks and 7.6 is a pretty significant tremor

00:03:50.260 –> 00:03:55.000
But like I said, I feel bad people I mean lost everything and then to on top of that

00:03:55.000 –> 00:04:01.500
You know that built the houses collapse that collapse on people. It’s just so sad. And then of course they had the

00:04:01.500 –> 00:04:07.560
They had fires they had a fight because of the quake and like I said, they still have power that’s down to places and stuff

00:04:07.560 –> 00:04:11.340
I just it’s just a really terrible thing and I really feel bad

00:04:11.340 –> 00:04:13.840
I mean you could be like you can be as prepped as you want

00:04:13.840 –> 00:04:18.160
You know if your bunker collapse under with a quake, there’s nothing you can do about it

00:04:18.160 –> 00:04:23.820
You know, they do have places that harden people do have homes that are hardened against this kind of stuff

00:04:23.820 –> 00:04:25.940
I know like data centers

00:04:25.940 –> 00:04:29.200
Especially if they are in areas like this

00:04:29.200 –> 00:04:33.700
They’re actually harden data centers so they can be protected against quakes and stuff like that

00:04:33.700 –> 00:04:41.460
But you know, it’s really sad. Like I said 565 people were injured over a thousand 390 homes destroyed

00:04:41.460 –> 00:04:44.600
I just want to bring this up because it’s a shame

00:04:44.600 –> 00:04:50.880
To like I said to see you know, like I said, we always talk about being prepared being ready, but unfortunately sometimes

00:04:50.880 –> 00:04:56.220
Especially at earthquake. You can’t really prepare for it. I mean you could do the best you can but

00:04:56.220 –> 00:05:01.940
You know, it’s one of those things where sometimes structures just don’t hold up to the ground shaking

00:05:02.620 –> 00:05:05.540
But like I said, hopefully that the have relief there

00:05:05.540 –> 00:05:08.900
They have tons of people they’re helping out and I have like I said

00:05:08.900 –> 00:05:12.820
I have a lot of people come people upset when they say well now we’re wasting money on helping now

00:05:12.820 –> 00:05:19.900
I don’t think so, you know fighting a war that’s useless is different than helping people that are in this kind of situation

00:05:19.900 –> 00:05:24.980
I mean these people did nothing wrong. This is just you know, active, you know act of God, you know

00:05:24.980 –> 00:05:30.140
I mean, there’s nothing you can do about it. It’s upsetting but like I said, I’m glad we have relief over there for

00:05:30.660 –> 00:05:33.620
For these people so they’re helping out with that. That was a big story

00:05:33.620 –> 00:05:36.020
this week

00:05:36.020 –> 00:05:39.920
and you know, it’s like I said, it’s really a shame because like I said, they’re also

00:05:39.920 –> 00:05:49.180
They at the time when this came out a couple days ago, there’s only six people now it’s up to 106 60 some so minutes

00:05:49.180 –> 00:05:53.420
You know and then they what they were worried about too is they’re worried about possible

00:05:53.420 –> 00:05:55.380
When they have quakes like this

00:05:55.380 –> 00:06:01.540
They’re worried about the ocean and the type and was a typhoon when it hit Fukushima a bunch of years ago after a quake. I

00:06:01.540 –> 00:06:04.980
Remember, I think Obama was in office. They actually had to get

00:06:04.980 –> 00:06:08.220
Our military and all that kind of support that helped them

00:06:08.220 –> 00:06:11.620
Japan’s ready for these things, but you mean just nothing prepares you for that

00:06:11.620 –> 00:06:13.560
But like I said, they you know

00:06:13.560 –> 00:06:19.420
It’s a shame and I bring these kind of world events up because we always talk about being prepped but they’re unfortunately just sometimes you

00:06:19.420 –> 00:06:23.600
Just can’t be prepped for something like that. You can’t be prepped for I mean you can be as prepared as you want

00:06:23.600 –> 00:06:27.400
I mean if a tidal waves coming it’s gonna I mean there’s nothing you can do

00:06:27.400 –> 00:06:30.680
I mean you could be as prepared as you want get out of the area, but

00:06:30.680 –> 00:06:34.320
You know, it’s a tough. It’s a really tough thing. So

00:06:34.320 –> 00:06:38.880
like I said, they’re those people I really feel for them and

00:06:38.880 –> 00:06:42.720
You know, it’s a horrible thing and they’ve gone through it before as well

00:06:42.720 –> 00:06:48.200
So I feel bad for them and like I said, we wish them all the best Coast Guard’s there everybody

00:06:48.200 –> 00:06:53.460
They’re helping out our our military and all that kind of their military their support services Red Cross

00:06:53.680 –> 00:06:55.680
everybody’s over there trying to help them so

00:06:55.680 –> 00:06:58.260
like I said, we wish them the best and

00:06:58.260 –> 00:07:04.320
Unfortunately – this wasn’t Japan also had other news – this past week

00:07:04.320 –> 00:07:09.100
With the five people that died in that Japan plane crash in Tokyo

00:07:09.100 –> 00:07:12.560
That was five people were aboard the Japanese

00:07:12.560 –> 00:07:18.960
Was it was a coat wall actually collided with so the way that actually was Japanese airline actually collided

00:07:19.500 –> 00:07:25.260
With a Coast Guard aircraft the coat everybody that was on the plane survived, but unfortunately those five

00:07:25.260 –> 00:07:28.860
people that were actually in the Coast Guard a

00:07:28.860 –> 00:07:36.600
Plane did not and it’s unfortunate to lose anybody but especially the men and women and they are

00:07:36.600 –> 00:07:40.620
the Coast Guard’s an amazing team a group of people and

00:07:40.620 –> 00:07:43.500
It’s a shame to see any of those people die

00:07:43.500 –> 00:07:48.480
They they go they risk their lives to save others and unfortunately, this was just a situation where you know

00:07:48.480 –> 00:07:50.480
They do planes just collided

00:07:50.480 –> 00:07:55.640
You know, they call it a near miss, but it’s not it’s a near hit as far as I’m concerned

00:07:55.640 –> 00:07:59.260
But like I said, I really feel bad especially the Coast Guard

00:07:59.260 –> 00:08:02.060
I’ve always had a lot of respect for the Coast Guard folks in the sense of

00:08:02.060 –> 00:08:06.100
you know what grounds the Navy and the Air Force they go out and

00:08:06.100 –> 00:08:12.200
you know, it’s just really so much respect for those people my friend a very good friend of mine on say his name on the

00:08:12.200 –> 00:08:13.460
show but

00:08:13.460 –> 00:08:16.640
He was actually him and I were talking and we were thinking about joining the military

00:08:17.220 –> 00:08:23.120
After high school and I had to man he was joining looking at the Navy looking at the army and all that and I answer now

00:08:23.120 –> 00:08:26.160
Maybe I’ll just join the Coast Guard, you know, I’m not in the mood to you know

00:08:26.160 –> 00:08:30.980
He’s like, you know, it was funny the guy leaving the guy that that was recruiting me for the Navy’s like

00:08:30.980 –> 00:08:36.880
You know, I’m doing the Coast Guard. He goes they go out in everything what grounds the Air Force and in the Navy

00:08:36.880 –> 00:08:39.180
they go out and so

00:08:39.180 –> 00:08:41.940
Really a tremendous amount of respect for those guys

00:08:42.180 –> 00:08:48.280
If anybody to you ever wants to really get a look good look at the Coast Guard go ahead and check out there’s a movie

00:08:48.280 –> 00:08:49.900

00:08:49.900 –> 00:08:55.020
Kevin Costner and I believe Aston Kutcher’s with it as well and it’s called Guardian. It’s a really good movie

00:08:55.020 –> 00:08:56.700
Go ahead and check it out

00:08:56.700 –> 00:09:00.700
It actually shows you a real behind the scenes of what they actually go through to train these guys

00:09:00.700 –> 00:09:03.100
Really amazing people wonderful work that they do

00:09:03.100 –> 00:09:08.420
I have a tremendous amount of respect for those guys and anybody in our military, but especially those guys

00:09:08.780 –> 00:09:15.740
They are actually allowed to board other other other boats and stuff like that if they think there’s suspicion or anything. I mean really

00:09:15.740 –> 00:09:18.880
Not only do they do they as well

00:09:18.880 –> 00:09:24.520
You know go out and and save lives people that are drowning and stuff but they also – they also are

00:09:24.520 –> 00:09:31.700
Literally doing the heck what it says coast guarding the coast against foreign military and stuff like that

00:09:31.700 –> 00:09:37.440
They actually really do it’s not just a life-saving organization. It also they also have other things they do as well

00:09:37.440 –> 00:09:42.200
It’s quite a diverse group them in the National Guard’s are supposed to be the ones that protect home base. So, uh,

00:09:42.200 –> 00:09:45.140
like I said, I really

00:09:45.140 –> 00:09:52.040
Trim, you know transmit a speck for those guys and what they do and unfortunately, it’s shame to see these five guys lose their lives

00:09:52.040 –> 00:09:54.140
It’s just a shame and unfortunately

00:09:54.140 –> 00:10:00.480
Lucky enough everybody in the airline was okay all hundred forty seven hundred and think forty or sixty some passengers

00:10:00.480 –> 00:10:05.360
But those five guys unfortunately making it’s really upsetting. So thoughts are with them as well

00:10:06.360 –> 00:10:11.620
So one of the things I wanted to bring up there’s a some some controversy in the news about why

00:10:11.620 –> 00:10:17.540
Former First Lady Melania was not in the family photo. Apparently she has went back

00:10:17.540 –> 00:10:21.460
Her mother is in not doing well 78. She’s very ill and

00:10:21.460 –> 00:10:25.600
She skipped the New Year’s party at Mar-a-Lago to to be with her

00:10:25.600 –> 00:10:28.980
To be with her mother and a lot of respect for her with that

00:10:28.980 –> 00:10:32.260
I remember taking care of my parents when they were ill and stuff like that no matter who you are

00:10:32.260 –> 00:10:36.060
It’s a tough thing and something we all are going to have to do unfortunately part of life

00:10:36.060 –> 00:10:37.620
But that’s why she was not there

00:10:37.620 –> 00:10:42.980
So the controversy about that has finally been laid to rest we talked about that a little bit last week on the show

00:10:42.980 –> 00:10:45.540

00:10:45.540 –> 00:10:47.220
When when Trump was in office?

00:10:47.220 –> 00:10:53.020
They were always talking about how much time he spent golfing how much time he spent at Mar-a-Lago and some of that recent

00:10:53.020 –> 00:10:55.560
article in the New York Post the other day

00:10:55.560 –> 00:10:58.820
says that Biden has spent 37% of his

00:10:58.820 –> 00:11:05.700
2023 at his getaway either in Delaware or camp or vacation site or a Camp David

00:11:06.540 –> 00:11:07.800

00:11:07.800 –> 00:11:14.600
So I think that’s about on par with Trump and let me taste. I will I will say this regardless of which side of the eye

00:11:14.600 –> 00:11:19.620
You’re on when you are president. It is a 24/7 thing. How many times did it happen to?

00:11:19.620 –> 00:11:24.740
Bush or Obama or anybody even prior to to Trump?

00:11:24.740 –> 00:11:29.660
how many times they’re on vacation or they’re at Camp Dave and all of a sudden they have to do a press conference all of a

00:11:29.660 –> 00:11:35.540
Sudden because you know something happened and they need to you know, they have to you know, take care of that

00:11:35.540 –> 00:11:42.280
I mean when you’re president you are president 24/7 regardless of your fever there or not at the White House. That’s just the way it is. So

00:11:42.280 –> 00:11:45.600
Like I said, that was an interesting article. I read

00:11:45.600 –> 00:11:52.460
37% so it’s about on par actually when I look this up for the show

00:11:52.460 –> 00:11:55.060
Because I wanted to look at this a little bit apparently

00:11:55.060 –> 00:11:58.720
Surprisingly enough the guy that’s been more time than anybody

00:11:58.720 –> 00:12:05.120
Was actually Bush jr. He was on vacation more than anybody over thousand something vacation days

00:12:05.540 –> 00:12:09.560
So I thought I thought that was pretty interesting. I didn’t like him anyway as a president

00:12:09.560 –> 00:12:12.700
we all know Dick Cheney was running this country when he was president, but

00:12:12.700 –> 00:12:17.860
Like I said, I thought that was funny. She’s been over thousand something days on vacation mostly at his rants in, Texas

00:12:17.860 –> 00:12:21.640
So I thought that was interesting. But again, he didn’t have to do anything Cheney was running the country

00:12:21.640 –> 00:12:26.960
So I’m talking about X Elon Musk all that kind of stuff

00:12:26.960 –> 00:12:33.840
The X platform forming on his Twitter has worked 71% less than what Elon bought it for in

00:12:34.420 –> 00:12:36.460
2022 according to the recent

00:12:36.460 –> 00:12:42.780
Information that was released on it now a lot of that is speculation – I think remember it’s not a public company anymore

00:12:42.780 –> 00:12:47.140
They don’t have to release financials. I would say it definitely has lost a lot of value

00:12:47.140 –> 00:12:50.180
And if you are interested in any of this stuff

00:12:50.180 –> 00:12:55.820
About X and what his thoughts are why he did what he did with it. Go ahead and check out. I

00:12:55.820 –> 00:13:00.960
Believe it’s I believe it’s on YouTube. It’s his interview with Rogan Joe Rogan

00:13:00.960 –> 00:13:05.480
He had a couple I think was like a month or two ago where he actually talks about why he bought X

00:13:05.480 –> 00:13:10.860
Why he did what he did how X went so far left that he that’s why he bought it

00:13:10.860 –> 00:13:13.340
And that’s why he moved, you know, now it’s more centered

00:13:13.340 –> 00:13:15.640
He says and that’s the other you know

00:13:15.640 –> 00:13:18.480
And now it just it feels like it’s it’s right me

00:13:18.480 –> 00:13:24.080
It feels like it’s in and he said too far right now because it was so far left and he’s got a whole big thing

00:13:24.080 –> 00:13:27.000
On that you could check out all on Twitter. I thought that was rather interesting check that out

00:13:27.000 –> 00:13:30.440
Like I said, it was him with Joe Rogan. It was actually quite interesting

00:13:31.360 –> 00:13:37.120
Like I said, this was all done recently. Like I said, they were saying that must purchase the company for 44

00:13:37.120 –> 00:13:41.080
Billion-dollars and they’re saying that it’s worth

00:13:41.080 –> 00:13:46.940
At least 71% less than that. So that’s that’s a lot of money

00:13:46.940 –> 00:13:53.380
it’s just amazing to me that I mean, you know, I hate to bring it up, but

00:13:53.380 –> 00:13:59.680
they they’re saying that one of the things that they’re gonna have to deal with with this is the whole situation of

00:14:00.120 –> 00:14:02.520
He took out loans on something that isn’t worth as much

00:14:02.520 –> 00:14:08.960
It used to be he owes I think it was the guy that owns Oracle Larry Ellison like a billion dollars. He owns

00:14:08.960 –> 00:14:14.360
Jack the guy Jack Dorsey the guy that founded the company a billion dollars

00:14:14.360 –> 00:14:18.880
So he owes those two guys just those types you guys only owes to money to he owes money to the bank

00:14:18.880 –> 00:14:23.380
Which fidelity is is not happy right now because he still owes them money

00:14:23.380 –> 00:14:27.660
And you know, he’s lost so many advertisers and all that kind of some other platform

00:14:28.120 –> 00:14:34.360
Not not looking too good for him. So well, I’m sure he’s not gonna lose the company, but it definitely

00:14:34.360 –> 00:14:42.300
Is something that we all should be not all should be but he should definitely be concerned with the company would declare bankruptcy

00:14:42.300 –> 00:14:46.640
He would still own it but then the bank could foreclose on Tesla one of them

00:14:46.640 –> 00:14:52.640
So, let’s see what to keep an eye on it and really see what happens here over the next couple of weeks months

00:14:52.640 –> 00:14:54.320

00:14:54.320 –> 00:14:55.960
Like I said, I don’t know how long it’s gonna want

00:14:55.960 –> 00:15:01.480
but apparently the bank is looking into the purchase and looking at how much he owes and what he’s paid already and all that and it’s

00:15:01.480 –> 00:15:04.580
There’s a whole big article on Fox Business the other day

00:15:04.580 –> 00:15:08.240
So speaking of Donald Trump, by the way, we talked about him a minute ago

00:15:08.240 –> 00:15:12.160
apparently Fox News has announced that they will be holding a

00:15:12.160 –> 00:15:14.920
town hall with the former president

00:15:14.920 –> 00:15:23.840
In Iowa to 10th, which is tomorrow. This will drop today, but a ninth and apparently they’re saying that he will be having a whole

00:15:24.800 –> 00:15:31.320
Well, they’ll be having a whole town hall with him while the other candidates Ron DeSantis

00:15:31.320 –> 00:15:40.300
What is it who else is there DeSantis I forget who else is running but there while they’re all at the the GOP primaries

00:15:40.300 –> 00:15:41.800
He will be

00:15:41.800 –> 00:15:43.800
Having his own town hall

00:15:43.800 –> 00:15:50.180
On that particular on Fox News. So those of you that don’t feel like watching the Republican debate

00:15:50.180 –> 00:15:53.160
Like I said, go ahead and you can watch that

00:15:53.880 –> 00:16:00.040
Also – by the way news talking about Biden. They’re saying somebody had came out. I want to make sure I get this particular

00:16:00.040 –> 00:16:05.000
Information, correct. I need to put it down in my show notes here. We scroll down

00:16:05.000 –> 00:16:14.500
They’re actually saying that JP Morgan strategy their strategist predicts that Biden’s gonna drop out after Super Tuesday

00:16:14.500 –> 00:16:19.560
and possibly somebody else would be the front-runner for the

00:16:20.960 –> 00:16:25.560
Democrats I’ve been saying this for a while folks and I think he was only gonna come in for one term

00:16:25.560 –> 00:16:28.160
If you guys listen to the shows from a year or two ago

00:16:28.160 –> 00:16:32.080
I remember saying I think he was only gonna be a one-term president and then he was going to

00:16:32.080 –> 00:16:35.320
What here’s what I think is gonna happen. They’re saying he might drop out

00:16:35.320 –> 00:16:39.800
I don’t think he’s going to what I think is going to happen. I think he’s going to stay in

00:16:39.800 –> 00:16:44.800
To go up against Trump try to get reelected if he does get reelected

00:16:44.800 –> 00:16:47.440
What will happen is?

00:16:47.440 –> 00:16:54.440
Then after that he’ll step down and Harris would be the the president and still point a vice president. I think

00:16:54.440 –> 00:16:59.580
That’s what I think is going to happen personally because then Harris could run again

00:16:59.580 –> 00:17:05.400
and then you would have you know what you’d have 12 years of Democrat rather than

00:17:05.400 –> 00:17:11.120
Just four but I think I really think that’s what’s gonna happen. I think that’s the Democrats strategy

00:17:11.120 –> 00:17:15.540
I’m still sticking by that but according to this report the strategist is saying he’s gonna drop out

00:17:16.440 –> 00:17:19.160
81 years old he’ll be 81 years old at the time of the election

00:17:19.160 –> 00:17:23.640
Yeah, so he’ll be 85 he stays in office Trump’s not much younger than that, but

00:17:23.640 –> 00:17:28.880
Biden they’re saying that Biden’s having health issues that the White House is keeping it hush-hush

00:17:28.880 –> 00:17:33.800
Maybe saying that since he got in there. He does have issues talking and stuttering

00:17:33.800 –> 00:17:41.160
Again, he’s had he does have I believe he has had strokes in the past. I’m not saying he’s not he’s incompetent

00:17:41.160 –> 00:17:44.780
I’m just saying I when you do have strokes my mother had strokes

00:17:44.780 –> 00:17:47.000
I had friends of ours that have had strokes

00:17:47.000 –> 00:17:52.060
Do you once you have a stroke you do have a stuttering issue just miss hard time finding words and things like that

00:17:52.060 –> 00:17:56.200
I’m not saying he he isn’t but the other thing I would like him to do is

00:17:56.200 –> 00:17:59.400
One thing I would like to see if you remember when Trump was in office

00:17:59.400 –> 00:18:04.260
They had him take a competency test and remember everybody kept saying all the companies. It wasn’t really a competency test

00:18:04.260 –> 00:18:07.040
it was just one that you you get if you have a

00:18:07.040 –> 00:18:12.240
Stroke or something like that. Well, why don’t they have Biden take one of those competency? I’m curious if he’d pass it

00:18:12.560 –> 00:18:16.700
I’m not saying he isn’t fit to lead I’m just saying I’d be curious if he’d pass it or not because I really I

00:18:16.700 –> 00:18:20.140
Do think he’s had some strokes and he does struggle with his words a little bit

00:18:20.140 –> 00:18:23.160
I’m not saying he’s not fit to lead but I’m just saying he

00:18:23.160 –> 00:18:26.000
That is very very common. So

00:18:26.000 –> 00:18:33.280
Let’s see also – in the post I want to bring this up because this was actually saw this today in the post and it

00:18:33.280 –> 00:18:35.480
Made me like oh, I guess I should bring that up for the show

00:18:35.480 –> 00:18:40.480
Apparently hey you this is the most insane thing a youtuber

00:18:42.200 –> 00:18:43.520

00:18:43.520 –> 00:18:45.580
Was found buried in a couple’s backyard

00:18:45.580 –> 00:18:50.800
Legend ly dying during sex. This is the true story

00:18:50.800 –> 00:18:58.400
Apparently in a body the body of a missing Brazilian YouTube star has been found buried in a backyard of some of his neighbors

00:18:58.400 –> 00:19:01.200
Who now claim he died during a cocaine?

00:19:01.200 –> 00:19:03.920
cocaine fueled Christmas sex with a couple

00:19:03.920 –> 00:19:09.880
26 years old and they found him somebody found him buried in the backyard. This is crazy

00:19:10.800 –> 00:19:14.360
And the reason why I say this is crazy is because this is like the second time we’ve heard about this

00:19:14.360 –> 00:19:18.160
We I’m in Pennsylvania up here and we actually had

00:19:18.160 –> 00:19:21.200
something similar to this

00:19:21.200 –> 00:19:24.880
About oh god a couple a year or two ago. They found a

00:19:24.880 –> 00:19:31.000
They found somebody buried in somebody’s backyard. It was like and then I guess the guy died or was missing in the 90s

00:19:31.000 –> 00:19:35.220
I guess the guy killed him buried in his backyard and I guess whatever happened

00:19:35.220 –> 00:19:39.220
They were digging up the backyard and they found the body and the guy still lived there and all that

00:19:39.220 –> 00:19:45.260
So that was something like the similar. It’s crazy when they these things come out. I mean, I don’t understand what goes on these people but

00:19:45.260 –> 00:19:47.860

00:19:47.860 –> 00:19:52.820
You know that was that was in the news today. I was like what that was in the front page of the post

00:19:52.820 –> 00:19:57.200
So by the way to speaking thing, I’m not gonna get too much into this because there has been

00:19:57.200 –> 00:20:01.700
so much going on with this, but I’m not gonna get into all of it, but

00:20:01.700 –> 00:20:06.060
Apparently now with everything going on. Obviously those Epstein files were released

00:20:06.920 –> 00:20:11.880
There’s names on there. They’re saying Clinton’s on there. They’re saying a bunch of politicians a bunch of

00:20:11.880 –> 00:20:15.060
They’re saying that that they’re pleading the fifth

00:20:15.060 –> 00:20:17.720
They’re saying Epstein pled the fifth

00:20:17.720 –> 00:20:22.100
When all this stuff happened, obviously found dead dead in this jail cell

00:20:22.100 –> 00:20:25.900
Now apparently they’re saying somebody else who who knew about it

00:20:25.900 –> 00:20:31.280
Was found dead recently who was supposed to testify. I I just think this whole thing

00:20:31.280 –> 00:20:36.760
I mean the conspiracy theory people are going nuts on this Joe Alex Jones at a whole show on this today the other day

00:20:36.760 –> 00:20:41.720
On it, so I’m not gonna get a whole much into it. We all know Clinton was a ladies, man

00:20:41.720 –> 00:20:45.200
We all know Bill Gates was on the list of people that have been to Epstein’s Island

00:20:45.200 –> 00:20:49.420
The list of politicians that were on it just go on and on and on. I’m not saying

00:20:49.420 –> 00:20:54.480
You know, it’s the message you’re guilty by association. Sometimes you are you aren’t whatever the case may be

00:20:54.480 –> 00:20:59.220
But like I said, if you want to read the list is all of who’s on there

00:20:59.220 –> 00:21:05.620
I don’t recognize a lot of names but they have a list of who was on there. They have all these other it’s just an unbelievable

00:21:06.680 –> 00:21:11.440
Is there’s just so many names that are on there and the more supposed to come out

00:21:11.440 –> 00:21:14.240
I always felt that it was weird that Epstein

00:21:14.240 –> 00:21:16.800
died in his cell the moment the

00:21:16.800 –> 00:21:20.200
The cameras went down that’s always been a big conspiracy theory

00:21:20.200 –> 00:21:23.960
There’s a very about this guy that was supposed to testify now is dead

00:21:23.960 –> 00:21:28.420
You know, a lot of people are saying it’s you know, they’re trying to keep things hush-hush and all that

00:21:28.420 –> 00:21:32.760
I don’t necessarily doubt that or I don’t necessarily think they’re lying about it

00:21:32.760 –> 00:21:38.560
I think they are trying to keep it hush-hush. Are they killing people probably but like I said, you know

00:21:38.560 –> 00:21:43.220
All that is is the conspiracy to go nuts on it Jones has whole shows on it if you want to listen to it, but

00:21:43.220 –> 00:21:47.240
I’m more they’re saying more names are supposed to be released now as well

00:21:47.240 –> 00:21:51.900
And I’m sure if you’re a politician or anybody that’s been there

00:21:51.900 –> 00:21:55.880
Is going you know, it doesn’t want that to come out. So that’s uh, I

00:21:55.880 –> 00:22:00.000
Guess that there’s whole shows on that go ahead and look that up if you want if you’re really more interested in that

00:22:00.000 –> 00:22:03.960
I’m not gonna get too much into it. But apparently they are gonna release more and more names. So

00:22:03.960 –> 00:22:07.880
Interesting. So and we you know, we talked about how the news can

00:22:07.880 –> 00:22:10.680
Can sometimes take things

00:22:10.680 –> 00:22:12.640
You know make it take one thing, you know

00:22:12.640 –> 00:22:14.580
something small making something big and

00:22:14.580 –> 00:22:20.260
We all know that most things that happen especially kidnappings and stuff like that happen from people that are close to you and some of that

00:22:20.260 –> 00:22:23.600
There was a big article the other day over the weekend

00:22:23.600 –> 00:22:25.960
about this

00:22:25.960 –> 00:22:27.720
apparently the

00:22:27.720 –> 00:22:31.240
German newspaper there was somebody person. She’s a

00:22:31.240 –> 00:22:35.320
She’s heir to a quite a big steakhouse fortune

00:22:35.320 –> 00:22:40.600
her name is Christina block apparently she’s in the the midst of a divorce and

00:22:40.600 –> 00:22:47.920
anyway, her husband had her ex-husband had the kids and apparently somebody jumped out of a van and abducted the kids and

00:22:47.920 –> 00:22:52.960
They were investigating the police were investigating stuff of that and the news was saying well, this could be a whole thing

00:22:53.760 –> 00:22:58.880
to get you know to you know to for them to get ransom out of the mother and

00:22:58.880 –> 00:23:01.640
You know then the amount of press that was covering this thing the whole time

00:23:01.640 –> 00:23:08.600
There was nothing’s heard on the ransom request. Nothing’s heard on this the inventor. Well, it actually shows it actually so

00:23:08.600 –> 00:23:14.960
It actually came out of the investigation that she actually hired somebody to kidnap the kids from her husband because she wanted him back

00:23:14.960 –> 00:23:16.720
She hired two guys

00:23:16.720 –> 00:23:21.800
They kidnapped him from the fall knocked the father or be pushed to fall whatever knocked him down or whatever

00:23:22.000 –> 00:23:28.840
Grabbed two kids into a van and took off and apparently it was the the mother that actually hired two people to do it

00:23:28.840 –> 00:23:32.920
and apparently now she was ordered by him for the Hamburg court on to

00:23:32.920 –> 00:23:37.320
To release the two children back to the father because he’s got custody of him

00:23:37.320 –> 00:23:44.640
He was knocked out here got knocked down by two masked men on New Year’s Eve in a cafe in the southern Danish town of

00:23:44.640 –> 00:23:47.920
celebrating with his son and daughter

00:23:47.920 –> 00:23:53.200
And apparently it came out that the mother is the one that allegedly had the kids kidnapped and brought to her. So

00:23:53.200 –> 00:23:56.520
now she’s could be

00:23:56.520 –> 00:24:03.560
Facing possibly facing charges over this. I don’t know if they will or not. I’m sure either way no matter what happens

00:24:03.560 –> 00:24:05.880
This is not gonna help her case any if she’s trying custody of her kids

00:24:05.880 –> 00:24:08.920
Specific I mean something like this

00:24:08.920 –> 00:24:13.600
I mean you could I can guarantee you this is gonna get brought up when they go back to court for custody of hey you

00:24:13.600 –> 00:24:16.360
Kidnapped our kids remember that and frightened this crap out of them

00:24:16.440 –> 00:24:20.120
So I’m sure this is not gonna vote well for her

00:24:20.120 –> 00:24:25.920
But apparently the news is blowing this up over the weekend about oh well the ransom how much how much ransom could they ask for?

00:24:25.920 –> 00:24:27.920
Dada and it was all just

00:24:27.920 –> 00:24:29.440
again, I

00:24:29.440 –> 00:24:33.520
Even said this from the beginning of the story when I first saw it. I said, you know, this is probably the mother

00:24:33.520 –> 00:24:36.200
wanting to

00:24:36.200 –> 00:24:42.200
Not get back, but you know wanting to do you know, whatever and you know, it’s gonna come out. It’s hard

00:24:42.200 –> 00:24:45.840
It’s not gonna be a kidnap for ransom. It’s not gonna be anything like that. It’s gonna be her

00:24:46.160 –> 00:24:50.600
Or one of the you know, something like that. It’s not gonna be as big of a deal as everything

00:24:50.600 –> 00:24:53.960
Oh, these kids were kidnapped. I’m like, they’re not not kidnapped a problem with the mother or something

00:24:53.960 –> 00:24:56.620
And I was right and and I hate to you know

00:24:56.620 –> 00:25:02.520
Say I’m right all the time. But when it comes to stuff like this it almost always is

00:25:02.520 –> 00:25:07.600
A relative especially comes to kids. It’s always this now there are times

00:25:07.600 –> 00:25:11.440
We and I don’t remember this too young, but I remember reading about it

00:25:12.240 –> 00:25:18.920
Frank Sinatra’s son when he got kidnapped that was different that wasn’t anything that was actually actual ransom with people that wanted money

00:25:18.920 –> 00:25:26.220
The guy that started Adobe the company Adobe hit I believe he was kidnapped for ransom once by somebody he didn’t know

00:25:26.220 –> 00:25:30.480
And it that does happen sometimes but generally when it’s stuff like this with kids

00:25:30.480 –> 00:25:36.380
It’s generally the family how many times do you find out that you know kid was kidnapped and the kids been with his aunt for?

00:25:36.380 –> 00:25:39.700
Years, I mean it this especially with more children

00:25:40.360 –> 00:25:47.280
It’s usually not a ransom thing. It’s mostly you’re usually a custody thing or you know something where it just happens to be necessary

00:25:47.280 –> 00:25:53.120
It does happen sometimes, you know, but it generally with kids. It’s usually not ransom with kids

00:25:53.120 –> 00:25:58.080
It’s usually a custody thing or somebody wants a lot of times actually with kids if the kids are kidnapped

00:25:58.080 –> 00:26:01.300
And I’m not saying all the time because we all started I think about those three girls

00:26:01.300 –> 00:26:04.880
they got kidnapped for that guy for 13 Amanda Berry and all that but

00:26:05.720 –> 00:26:10.660
But specifically generally when it’s small children it is usually

00:26:10.660 –> 00:26:17.200
Custody thing usually nothing all time because it isn’t I mean we’ve seen many fringe cases, but

00:26:17.200 –> 00:26:23.680
Generally or generally people that do kidnap kids want a child aren’t able to have it and they kidnap them something that there’s been tons

00:26:23.680 –> 00:26:26.520
of like lifetime movies and stuff like that made about it, but I

00:26:26.520 –> 00:26:30.800
Said this was not this was gonna be exact. I as soon as this happened

00:26:30.800 –> 00:26:32.800
I said that was what it could have been ended up being right

00:26:33.480 –> 00:26:39.560
so I thought that was like I said, you know that was in the news and I was it was a big deal, but

00:26:39.560 –> 00:26:46.640
Unfortunately, is that I mean fortunately for the kids it ended well, you know as far as they’re just they’re just with the mother

00:26:46.640 –> 00:26:50.240
And they’re being returned to the father. Thank God. It wasn’t that because I’d feel horrible

00:26:50.240 –> 00:26:52.760
I mean a kid that’s kidnapped for ransom and all that kind of stuff

00:26:52.760 –> 00:26:57.240
I mean, I was actually movie from years ago called ransom is actually based on a true story

00:26:57.240 –> 00:26:59.400
So Mel Gibson, you can look it up on the internet or whatever

00:27:00.040 –> 00:27:04.940
You probably find it for free online, but where they actually did kidnap a kid for ransom

00:27:04.940 –> 00:27:10.760
And I think that kid I believe that I remember reading the story right the kid to this day isn’t right

00:27:10.760 –> 00:27:14.240
It just totally mentally worn them and rightfully so so

00:27:14.240 –> 00:27:19.940
But yeah that I said that was a big new story over the over the weekend and the news was blowing it up

00:27:19.940 –> 00:27:23.120
And to the speaking of the crazies

00:27:23.120 –> 00:27:25.900
There was also another story over the weekend

00:27:25.900 –> 00:27:27.960

00:27:27.960 –> 00:27:30.680
I’m I hope I get her name right esquisira

00:27:30.680 –> 00:27:33.360
Tana Remley

00:27:33.360 –> 00:27:37.900
Imprisoned for two years after her for four years after she puts a two million dollar

00:27:37.900 –> 00:27:45.020
Plot against her husband, I guess she won that she put a two million dollar bounty on her husband’s head to kill him

00:27:45.020 –> 00:27:49.480
I guess they were having issues and she

00:27:49.480 –> 00:27:53.800
I guess he was gonna get a lot of money in the divorce

00:27:53.800 –> 00:28:00.680
So she tried to spend she was gonna I guess she reached out somebody was gonna give him two million dollars ever husband killed

00:28:00.680 –> 00:28:06.240
They actually found out about it. She pled guilty and she only got four years behind bars, but that’s uh, that’s

00:28:06.240 –> 00:28:14.000
Pretty darn scary. Yeah, you we’ve heard I mean there’s been Netflix movies never that where the husband kills the wife and stuff like that, but

00:28:14.000 –> 00:28:19.580
You know, you don’t hear it as much to go in the other direction, but you guys remember Phil Hartman

00:28:19.580 –> 00:28:25.180
He was Ted in jingle all the way. His wife was I think she was on Zoloft or something like that. She was

00:28:25.180 –> 00:28:28.580
They were on vacation. She was doing cocaine or whatever like that

00:28:28.580 –> 00:28:35.380
I guess she got like she she she she got mad at him or was crazy. She killed him shot him

00:28:35.380 –> 00:28:39.540
I think she shot him and then the incident she got in the car and drove

00:28:39.540 –> 00:28:44.640
You know, I think to her friend’s house to confess it and all that kind of

00:28:45.580 –> 00:28:49.740
Sane story, but he had like I think she got I forget a year. She got behind

00:28:49.740 –> 00:28:53.200
I don’t I think she got prison time, but she had to it for killing somebody but

00:28:53.200 –> 00:29:00.060
But I know she uh, I know she that I think she follow. I think her brother his brother’s a final lawsuit against

00:29:00.060 –> 00:29:04.540
Pfizer of all things. I think was Pfizer one of those companies for

00:29:04.540 –> 00:29:12.500
For because they made the the Zoloft and it wasn’t like a warning on the Zola saying don’t mix this with cocaine or whatever

00:29:12.500 –> 00:29:17.600
I remember I remember hearing about that stuff. But yeah, so it does happen and we all remember what I mean

00:29:17.600 –> 00:29:23.840
We all remember what happened with Elena Bobbitt her husband, you know, so it does happen though the wives women can be vengeful

00:29:23.840 –> 00:29:25.840
you know, I mean mostly it’s it’s always the

00:29:25.840 –> 00:29:28.620
Nina’s lifetime channels. It’s always the

00:29:28.620 –> 00:29:35.380
You know, mostly the husband that’s to blame but it does go the other way. Sometimes it does

00:29:35.380 –> 00:29:42.340
So hope but that was in the news too. I’m like, this is like the weekend for dysfunctional families in the in the news

00:29:43.020 –> 00:29:46.620
I also like to bring up to I’m actually a wrestling fan myself

00:29:46.620 –> 00:29:50.580
But if you got I don’t know if many of you guys remember Teddy Hart

00:29:50.580 –> 00:29:57.460
He’s actually I believe he’s the nephew of Bret Hart or the I think yeah, I think he’s the nephew of Bret Hart

00:29:57.460 –> 00:30:04.300
He was actually supposed to be a pretty he was actually a pretty big wrestling star or was it wasn’t it was a rising star

00:30:04.300 –> 00:30:05.380

00:30:05.380 –> 00:30:07.380
and he actually

00:30:07.540 –> 00:30:13.440
There’s actually a documentary on a docu-series on him on peacock. It’s I think it’s only three episodes. I watched all three episodes

00:30:13.440 –> 00:30:17.820
Which is actually interesting where he actually it shows him

00:30:17.820 –> 00:30:23.300
You know, like he had a chance to be and W we said he was untrainable. He thought he knew everything

00:30:23.300 –> 00:30:28.540
he’s wrestling on the Indies and and just just completely crazy with

00:30:28.540 –> 00:30:35.400
just drug use and and and running the Indies and just kind of shows you don’t know what these guys are like and

00:30:35.940 –> 00:30:41.500
Apparently he was training a young girl and the girl went missing and now they can’t find her. He says he knows nothing about it

00:30:41.500 –> 00:30:47.420
His passport was pulled so he’s not able to leave the country and it’s a whole big thing

00:30:47.420 –> 00:30:52.580
If you’re in it to wrestling at all, like I said, it’s called a Teddy Hart and that’s the whole thing

00:30:52.580 –> 00:30:55.180
It’s actually well done. It’s my documentary filmmaker

00:30:55.180 –> 00:31:01.620
It’s actually like I said, very well done. Usually that stuff is kind of a but it actually is very well done

00:31:01.620 –> 00:31:05.580
It’s actually a shame to yeah young good-looking girl with I think she’s a mom

00:31:05.740 –> 00:31:07.740
like couple kids too and

00:31:07.740 –> 00:31:12.140
And now unfortunately, you know, she’s you know, they can’t have me able to find her

00:31:12.140 –> 00:31:16.780
They’re still he’s being tried for it, but they haven’t found a body or anything like that. So it

00:31:16.780 –> 00:31:19.520
Like I said, he wants to documentary

00:31:19.520 –> 00:31:22.780
Like I said, I’m gonna give too much of her way, but it was one of those things where do I do?

00:31:22.780 –> 00:31:24.780
I think he killed her. I’m not I don’t think so

00:31:24.780 –> 00:31:28.660
But do I think you put her in a very bad situation? She couldn’t get out of absolutely

00:31:28.660 –> 00:31:32.020
so that’s one like I said to

00:31:32.820 –> 00:31:39.360
Like I said to take a watch if you’re a wrestling fan, we also too if you watch there’s another series too called dark side of

00:31:39.360 –> 00:31:40.360
the ring

00:31:40.360 –> 00:31:43.820
Which is on Hulu as well. You can watch it. I believe it’s like a vice media show

00:31:43.820 –> 00:31:49.240
you find that on the internet, but all that and all that wrestling stuff always makes it onto the internet because well,

00:31:49.240 –> 00:31:51.240
we’re wrestling people do that and

00:31:51.240 –> 00:31:55.260
Talking about Jimmy Jimmy superfly snooker and

00:31:55.260 –> 00:32:00.900
The craziness behind him and and what he did and how he did they he kind of admitted

00:32:01.420 –> 00:32:06.500
Basically almost killing somebody but because of all the trauma and stuff he had had to the head and all that kind of stuff

00:32:06.500 –> 00:32:11.540
They he was unfit to stand trial. I think he’s like 76 or 78 at the time and

00:32:11.540 –> 00:32:16.180
you know, they I don’t know if he confessed but they found proof and they were gonna try him for it and

00:32:16.180 –> 00:32:18.980
You know, it’s just one of those things also to

00:32:18.980 –> 00:32:26.060
You guys remember D. There’s a restaurant called Dino Bravo. He was one that they just found him dead in an alley somewhere

00:32:27.500 –> 00:32:33.060
You know, they they don’t know there’s a lot of if you want to really look that up really look if you are a wrestling fan

00:32:33.060 –> 00:32:35.060
You want to kind of see the other side of wrestling?

00:32:35.060 –> 00:32:38.520
Really check out. It’s called dark side of the dark side of the ring

00:32:38.520 –> 00:32:42.240
It’s actually pretty good. And like I said, the other one is a teddy heart story. It’s on peacock

00:32:42.240 –> 00:32:49.340
So something else I want to bring up any of you guys that are in Pennsylvania. I think this is a valid story

00:32:49.340 –> 00:32:51.800
it’s why I know it’s a little local for some people but

00:32:52.820 –> 00:33:00.100
Apparently there is going to actually be the State Department of Revenue in Pennsylvania announced that in this year 2024

00:33:00.100 –> 00:33:03.220
apparently they are going to

00:33:03.220 –> 00:33:04.540

00:33:04.540 –> 00:33:05.660

00:33:05.660 –> 00:33:10.160
gas tax from 61 cents per gallon to 57 cents per gallon

00:33:10.160 –> 00:33:15.820
So you’re gonna save about four cents a gallon at the pump because of this the state tax

00:33:15.820 –> 00:33:19.500
I don’t think that’s that big of a deal. I don’t think it’s going

00:33:19.500 –> 00:33:21.620
You know

00:33:21.620 –> 00:33:24.760
And so to really bump the needle for most of us

00:33:24.760 –> 00:33:32.100
but this kind of figure this was gonna happen because election season, you know, everybody all know that gas comes down during elections and

00:33:32.100 –> 00:33:34.860
Especially in where we live in, Pennsylvania

00:33:34.860 –> 00:33:39.420
there has always been a state a state gas tax and

00:33:39.420 –> 00:33:42.380
I’ve bring this up a bunch because I remember when they put it on

00:33:42.380 –> 00:33:44.820
I was only gonna be for the first year and then it’s gonna know after that

00:33:44.820 –> 00:33:51.180
It won’t be ever and I’m still paying that damn tax how long later but like I said and and by the way

00:33:51.180 –> 00:33:55.100
I don’t point out to that was supposed to be for the roads and Pennsylvania still has some of the worst roads in the state

00:33:55.100 –> 00:33:57.060
In the country, I’m sorry

00:33:57.060 –> 00:34:01.540
And like I said, so you’re looking you’re gonna see about four cents a gallon prices are gonna come down

00:34:01.540 –> 00:34:03.840
Anyway, because of the elections coming up

00:34:03.840 –> 00:34:06.900
like I said only gets it a month the needle for most of us, but it was

00:34:06.900 –> 00:34:13.060
Relevant news for those of you that live in Pennsylvania anybody too by the way that lives in

00:34:13.060 –> 00:34:16.820
California there’s actually this was a big story

00:34:16.820 –> 00:34:20.140
That actually saw on a bunch of business sites

00:34:20.780 –> 00:34:23.580
Apparently the minimum wage in California

00:34:23.580 –> 00:34:28.540
Says right here from actually this is actually from

00:34:28.540 –> 00:34:31.240
interesting domain

00:34:31.240 –> 00:34:38.220
Established a minimum wage of $20 per hour for fast food workers beginning April 1st 2024 and allows

00:34:38.220 –> 00:34:46.300
The council to increase the wage annually the annual increase is capped at the lesser of 3.5 percent

00:34:47.300 –> 00:34:54.100
Of or the annual increase of the US CPI for urban wage earnings and clients workers

00:34:54.100 –> 00:34:57.380
so that’s uh

00:34:57.380 –> 00:35:02.420
Again, that was in the news today or in the news this week. That was a big story

00:35:02.420 –> 00:35:06.620
Because now but I will say this though and and believe me

00:35:06.620 –> 00:35:10.500
I’m not uh, and I think some of the stuff of pushing for higher wage and stuff of that

00:35:10.500 –> 00:35:16.180
It’s part of the reason why I have this automation. I mean part of the problem one of the reasons why uber is

00:35:16.860 –> 00:35:20.180
Going with automated vehicles is because they’ve had such problems

00:35:20.180 –> 00:35:25.960
With drivers, okay, and it’s not like a lot of people say oh, it’s because they don’t want to pay wages

00:35:25.960 –> 00:35:28.220
it’s part of that and I’m not gonna lie, but

00:35:28.220 –> 00:35:31.540
They’ve also had a very difficult time with drivers

00:35:31.540 –> 00:35:36.140
So I have a feeling now that with this you’re gonna start because McDonald’s is already experimenting

00:35:36.140 –> 00:35:42.060
With an automated process to make hamburgers and stuff like that. I mean, they already have the kiosks in and some of that so

00:35:42.060 –> 00:35:44.580
I could see companies

00:35:45.060 –> 00:35:49.260
Really moving that along deal just when I went to TechCrunch, which is a fairly big

00:35:49.260 –> 00:35:55.740
Startup thing I went recently and they already have robots that are assembling tacos and stuff like that. So I

00:35:55.740 –> 00:35:58.740
Think it’s only going to be a matter of time before

00:35:58.740 –> 00:36:05.220
If they keep driving the prices up that these companies are just gonna go with automation. I can see it happening

00:36:05.220 –> 00:36:09.260
It happened to factory workers. I can see it happening to fast-food workers like even to drivers

00:36:09.260 –> 00:36:13.580
so like I said, I I think this is going to be I

00:36:14.100 –> 00:36:21.020
Hope I mean first of all, it’s one of the reason I’m saying I’m okay with this is California is a very expensive to live

00:36:21.020 –> 00:36:26.540
Regardless, it’s a very expensive area. It’s just like living. I mean just like New York or Houston

00:36:26.540 –> 00:36:32.180
I mean, those are major metropolitan hubs and you cannot make it at 70 bucks an hour even 12 bucks an hour

00:36:32.180 –> 00:36:35.940
It’s just there’s absolutely no, especially with the cost of living going up like it is so

00:36:35.940 –> 00:36:39.980
But I hope that this doesn’t hurt

00:36:41.380 –> 00:36:46.420
The the job market in the sense we’re gonna lose a lot of those jobs unless people don’t want those jobs they have no choice

00:36:46.420 –> 00:36:49.980
We all remember the problem. I’m from New Jersey and

00:36:49.980 –> 00:36:55.580
We all remember the hard times that they had with getting tollbooth workers. So they went to easy pass. So

00:36:55.580 –> 00:37:03.820
You know, I I just I’m all for people getting a living wage. I’m all for that. But what I will say is I

00:37:03.820 –> 00:37:07.220
Have a feeling you’re gonna see automation get first person further

00:37:07.220 –> 00:37:11.540
Especially and not even because of the wage hike I think because just how hard it is to get help

00:37:11.540 –> 00:37:15.980
so I think you’re gonna see more that and I think this is gonna push even further because if the

00:37:15.980 –> 00:37:18.240
Workers, they are gonna get they got to pay good. So

00:37:18.240 –> 00:37:21.280
You know I could see that

00:37:21.280 –> 00:37:25.140
One thing I will say they’re saying that state industry wage

00:37:25.140 –> 00:37:30.060
Council is set wages for the fast-food workers until January 1st of 2029

00:37:30.060 –> 00:37:35.280
So you have to pay people that until 2029 that is the the rule right now

00:37:36.140 –> 00:37:43.460
In California, so like I said, we’ll see what happens that goes into place on April 1st, so they got some time yet

00:37:43.460 –> 00:37:48.420
But like I said, we will we’ll see I’m curious what big companies are gonna do the probably just gonna you know

00:37:48.420 –> 00:37:53.820
honestly, and I hate to say it this may actually even be a moot point because

00:37:53.820 –> 00:37:59.260
If you you know so many places are trying to get people that they are paying high wages

00:37:59.260 –> 00:38:02.020
This might actually be a moot point if I’m being honest

00:38:02.460 –> 00:38:05.820
And the last story I wanted to bring up because it just shows in politics how?

00:38:05.820 –> 00:38:08.360
things just

00:38:08.360 –> 00:38:12.060
No matter what happens, you know things just get you know

00:38:12.060 –> 00:38:19.140
Even if you screw up you you get rewarded so those of us that

00:38:19.140 –> 00:38:22.260
That remember

00:38:22.260 –> 00:38:27.460
There was the the person that was convicted of ballot

00:38:27.460 –> 00:38:30.300
harvesting Gloria Torres

00:38:30.580 –> 00:38:33.300
Was just named San Luis’s vice

00:38:33.300 –> 00:38:35.780
mayor or

00:38:35.780 –> 00:38:37.780
What they call the mayor?

00:38:37.780 –> 00:38:42.460
The one basically vice mayor. Yes, you can call it or whatever you want to call it deputy mayor. I was

00:38:42.460 –> 00:38:46.860
but apparently she was she she was actually convicted of

00:38:46.860 –> 00:38:55.460
Voter for she was actually case investigated. She wasn’t merely caught committing fraud. She was actually criminally convicted of doing so

00:38:55.460 –> 00:38:57.180

00:38:57.180 –> 00:38:59.180
Now this person is deputy mayor

00:38:59.620 –> 00:39:02.460
How does that even happen I?

00:39:02.460 –> 00:39:09.780
Mean really how does that even happen like I just don’t know it’s got to be I don’t understand how people in politics do the stuff

00:39:09.780 –> 00:39:15.520
They screw up and they get rewarded. It’s just the way you know. It’s just the way the world works

00:39:15.520 –> 00:39:22.420
Unbelievable so that was in the news this week as well so

00:39:22.420 –> 00:39:28.740
Big pile big stack of news stories this week. You know it’s the first first couple weeks of January

00:39:28.740 –> 00:39:31.500
I’m really surprised we had as much news stories usually this is a quiet time of year

00:39:31.500 –> 00:39:36.340
But everybody’s Congress is coming back here in some back. It’s like I said some other stuff. We’ll talk about next week

00:39:36.340 –> 00:39:40.100
One of the things I do want to point out I’ve been watching that

00:39:40.100 –> 00:39:43.700
I’ve been watching that show on

00:39:43.700 –> 00:39:45.660

00:39:45.660 –> 00:39:52.860
Alone, well, it’s not really it’s on Netflix, but it’s actually a I believe it’s a Discovery Channel thing Discovery Plus thing, but it’s on

00:39:52.860 –> 00:39:56.560
It’s on Netflix and by the way to folks you see you know

00:39:57.460 –> 00:40:01.880
HBO Max as all their content is from Discovery is on their platform

00:40:01.880 –> 00:40:07.380
It’s not there’s certain shows you can only get on Discovery Plus even though Max says that all their content is going on there

00:40:07.380 –> 00:40:09.340
It’s not all there. Just so you know

00:40:09.340 –> 00:40:13.480
But one of these I was watching they are actually in the wilderness

00:40:13.480 –> 00:40:21.540
And it’s actually really cold time of year, and it’s snowing and all that kind of stuff and one of the things I was

00:40:21.540 –> 00:40:24.880
actually very interested in seeing was that

00:40:25.900 –> 00:40:28.940
The they actually had people that were actually they were building these

00:40:28.940 –> 00:40:33.820
They always build shelters now obviously, but one of these I thought was very interesting was

00:40:33.820 –> 00:40:36.720
How all these people since they’re in the snow?

00:40:36.720 –> 00:40:43.180
They’re actually all making beds on raised. They’re all making raised beds, so you’re not sitting on the cold floor

00:40:43.180 –> 00:40:46.380
Very interesting. I thought it was really important

00:40:46.380 –> 00:40:50.180
They were talking about how you can have have you if you lift your cot up off the ground

00:40:50.180 –> 00:40:54.300
And or build like yourself like a raised bed you put your sleeping bag on there

00:40:54.300 –> 00:40:56.740
So you’re not sleeping on the floor keeps you warm

00:40:56.740 –> 00:40:59.800
Also – if you build a fire pit

00:40:59.800 –> 00:41:02.740
Actually dig it into the ground

00:41:02.740 –> 00:41:05.600
So you know it not only does it warm

00:41:05.600 –> 00:41:08.500
You know it keeps the place warm, but it also helped get the ground warm

00:41:08.500 –> 00:41:12.900
So you’re not sleeping on the cold ground if you are on the ground. I thought that was interesting as well

00:41:12.900 –> 00:41:19.060
Some of these they showed people building shelters actually building the shelter with like almost like a chimney outside

00:41:19.060 –> 00:41:22.980
So that people could actually you know you could be in your shelter and have the heat

00:41:23.820 –> 00:41:27.820
Lot of interesting things when it comes to building these shelters especially in the cold winter

00:41:27.820 –> 00:41:33.660
Area and stuff of that one of the things that I did I did notice that I never really thought about

00:41:33.660 –> 00:41:36.660
But one of the things these guys were doing a lot

00:41:36.660 –> 00:41:41.860
I mean it’s hard because the lands barren and stuff like that so they relied heavily on fly fishing

00:41:41.860 –> 00:41:45.740
and they were making their their own rods and stuff like that and

00:41:45.740 –> 00:41:50.460
One of the things I didn’t one of the things that I was thinking about I didn’t think about it

00:41:50.460 –> 00:41:53.020
Then I was I was watching like you know these guys are getting so many fish

00:41:53.020 –> 00:41:56.660
But eventually as it gets colder and the season starts to change you know

00:41:56.660 –> 00:41:59.620
Eventually those fishing patterns are going to change

00:41:59.620 –> 00:42:04.660
So one of the things they’re doing is is relying heavily on fishing, so I thought that was

00:42:04.660 –> 00:42:10.580
Something I’ll see well. That’s great, but what happens when with the fishing patterns change and stuff like that so

00:42:10.580 –> 00:42:14.660
One of the things I did notice that was kind of interesting the one guy talking about being inventive

00:42:14.660 –> 00:42:18.060
They were they had to bring you had to make your own flies

00:42:18.060 –> 00:42:21.460
And one of the guys before he left

00:42:22.060 –> 00:42:26.020
For you know left you know from home to come up

00:42:26.020 –> 00:42:28.780
I guess he had his his wife bleached his hair

00:42:28.780 –> 00:42:33.500
So he would have or dye his hair so we’d have yellow in his hair, and then he also did

00:42:33.500 –> 00:42:37.820
Also had his wife. I guess she dyed part of his hair yellow and part of it green

00:42:37.820 –> 00:42:40.320
This way he can cut his hair and use it to make flies

00:42:40.320 –> 00:42:45.860
I really was impressed with that and then he also had back of his hair died pink, but that didn’t last too long

00:42:45.860 –> 00:42:50.100
But yeah, he actually dyed his hair so he can cut his hair and use his hair

00:42:50.640 –> 00:42:55.180
To make the flies because you need you know because obviously fish are attracted to bright colors and stuff

00:42:55.180 –> 00:42:57.900
So I thought that was very inventive something

00:42:57.900 –> 00:43:02.300
I saw I’m like wow you know what that actually is a good like if you know you’re gonna go out in the wilderness and

00:43:02.300 –> 00:43:06.620
You’re gonna need to be making flies and stuff of that to actually dye your hair like that

00:43:06.620 –> 00:43:10.060
You can I mean your hair is gonna grow no matter what so they can chop a little bit of it off

00:43:10.060 –> 00:43:13.280
And use it to make a fly so I thought that was really interesting

00:43:13.280 –> 00:43:19.420
And like I said they were actually making fly fishing rods, which I mean isn’t hard if you’re obviously wet flying a dry fly

00:43:19.420 –> 00:43:24.780
We’ve talked about all this, but your wet fly goes in the water. We dry fly. You know pulls on top of the water, but

00:43:24.780 –> 00:43:27.480
They actually are making their own

00:43:27.480 –> 00:43:32.480
Their own particular you know their own flies and rods of its very inventive

00:43:32.480 –> 00:43:36.280
Also – like I said one of the things I did notice is

00:43:36.280 –> 00:43:41.560
This one of the guys was actually boiling and eating seaweed

00:43:41.560 –> 00:43:45.900
We always you hear about people eating seaweed and stuff, but you actually say it

00:43:47.420 –> 00:43:51.200
You know what they uh what they actually you know what they do to eat

00:43:51.200 –> 00:43:55.800
You know eat seaweed it’s uh they have to boil it and and then and then you’re eating it

00:43:55.800 –> 00:44:00.240
I mean I can’t imagine I mean I know it’s healthy for you, but I can’t imagine a taste that great

00:44:00.240 –> 00:44:06.640
But when you’re out in the woods you know and one thing I have noticed especially with any of these survival shows you have a you

00:44:06.640 –> 00:44:10.300
have a lot better chance of

00:44:10.300 –> 00:44:14.080
Fishing than you do hunting

00:44:14.080 –> 00:44:19.320
It’s just the way it is and I don’t know why that is but you always have you know a better chance of

00:44:19.320 –> 00:44:23.280
Getting a fish than you do getting an animal

00:44:23.280 –> 00:44:28.940
It’s just the way it is on these shows. You know we have a chance of getting small game like a fisher or a

00:44:28.940 –> 00:44:33.880
You know or squirrels or like you know you always have a better chance of that stuff

00:44:33.880 –> 00:44:37.000
Rather than large game. It’s just the way it is in these shows but

00:44:37.000 –> 00:44:40.740
One of the things that I will say though, and I brought this up like the one guy was like

00:44:40.740 –> 00:44:42.860
I’m gonna get myself a bear so I can I’m gonna get myself

00:44:43.700 –> 00:44:50.140
That is a pretty tall order for somebody with only a couple of arrows and you know all by himself

00:44:50.140 –> 00:44:54.780
You know I mean, it’s just it’s just a really hard. I mean you can do it

00:44:54.780 –> 00:44:59.280
I’ve done it, but you know going going bear hunting with a bow is

00:44:59.280 –> 00:45:03.220
It’s not as easy as it sounds and these guys

00:45:03.220 –> 00:45:07.760
Especially are you know out in the wilderness by themselves?

00:45:07.760 –> 00:45:12.560
And they’re gonna try to hunt bear that is going to be a a tall order, so we’ve been watching that

00:45:13.080 –> 00:45:15.320
that’s been interesting, but

00:45:15.320 –> 00:45:18.820
One thing I have noticed about a lot of these shows

00:45:18.820 –> 00:45:24.520
And I don’t know why but you just seem to get those guys that are the big tough guys always seem to tap out first

00:45:24.520 –> 00:45:29.980
But like I said I was watching that but one of the things that really interested me not so much the fishing and stuff like

00:45:29.980 –> 00:45:31.980
that but the actual

00:45:31.980 –> 00:45:36.880
Actually you know building your shelter have me on being cold all the time

00:45:36.880 –> 00:45:42.520
One of these I didn’t think of one of these I’ve thought about myself is especially these guys around the woods in the winter

00:45:42.720 –> 00:45:44.580
You know we talked about this last show

00:45:44.580 –> 00:45:49.960
But you you know getting dry firewood if you you know knock a tree down or something like that you have to kind of dig

00:45:49.960 –> 00:45:53.040
Into it to find the dry firewood because the outside is gonna be all wet

00:45:53.040 –> 00:45:55.520
So one of the things I was watching was these guys

00:45:55.520 –> 00:45:58.640
in these in these woods and then these these

00:45:58.640 –> 00:46:02.880
They’re cutting trees down just so they have dry wood

00:46:02.880 –> 00:46:08.680
Where they cut it up, and then they leave it in the shelter so it has a chance to dry overnight and stuff of that

00:46:09.180 –> 00:46:14.200
So it’s a little bit different also too though one of the things that that is tough with that too is getting seasoned wood

00:46:14.200 –> 00:46:17.020
I know one of the guys was looking for dead trees

00:46:17.020 –> 00:46:19.700
Just because he knew it would be it would burn better

00:46:19.700 –> 00:46:22.520
Then you cut down a regular tree because even the woods I mean

00:46:22.520 –> 00:46:25.840
Regular tree you’re not gonna have a whole lot of a lot of that fire

00:46:25.840 –> 00:46:29.200
We know burn, but it’s gonna be tough to burn if it’s not seasoned

00:46:29.200 –> 00:46:31.820
Especially if it’s damp and wet

00:46:31.820 –> 00:46:37.560
So like I said when you’re watching these shows sometimes you get there really I mean not saying yet the wonder but

00:46:38.280 –> 00:46:43.740
It’s tough sometimes like when you watch people it’s like oh, I didn’t think about like it’s so I watch it cuz basically it’s educational

00:46:43.740 –> 00:46:45.920
It’s teaching you bushcraft and some of that

00:46:45.920 –> 00:46:49.820
But I thought that was rather interesting like I said they one guy was like well

00:46:49.820 –> 00:46:51.660
I’ll get a dead tree so it burns, but I’m like yeah

00:46:51.660 –> 00:46:55.400
And then the other problem is if you’re in an area like that where it’s snowing all the time

00:46:55.400 –> 00:47:00.700
It’s gonna be hard to find dry wood so you have to get wood and then put it in your shelter to dry out so you

00:47:00.700 –> 00:47:02.700
Can actually make a fire?

00:47:02.700 –> 00:47:04.980
So like I said it is rather interesting

00:47:05.340 –> 00:47:09.500
And one of the things to somebody had talked to me were talking about one of those shows and they had said to me

00:47:09.500 –> 00:47:13.800
Well these guys you know you think that they’re in the woods for these months and months and months

00:47:13.800 –> 00:47:16.700
I never you know do any kind of agriculture stuff

00:47:16.700 –> 00:47:19.400
I’m like yeah, but I mean if you were gonna stay out there forever

00:47:19.400 –> 00:47:24.540
You would but if you’re only gonna be out there like 40 50 60 days, but a time something grows

00:47:24.540 –> 00:47:29.120
It’s not gonna be worth your at some of these places to where they at right now are barren

00:47:29.120 –> 00:47:33.000
I mean now it’s not the time when they get out there. It’s not the time. We’re here to grow something

00:47:33.360 –> 00:47:35.360
Um that’s the other problem

00:47:35.360 –> 00:47:39.800
Because somebody had said well these people are smart. They’d set up. You know they start growing their own fruits

00:47:39.800 –> 00:47:41.160
I’m like you think

00:47:41.160 –> 00:47:45.640
Vegetables yeah, but they’re not out there. It’s only out there 50 60 70 80 days. I mean that’s not

00:47:45.640 –> 00:47:53.320
Enough time to grow enough to even be substantial a lot of extra a lot of move you have to realize too and in those kind

00:47:53.320 –> 00:48:00.060
Of situations it’s it’s calorie versus reward. You know I see these guys walking around all day, and they they shoot

00:48:00.060 –> 00:48:02.900
one squirrel and

00:48:02.940 –> 00:48:06.760
I’m thinking to myself, and I’m not like I get it you’re hungry you got to find food

00:48:06.760 –> 00:48:12.540
But you know that’s a lot of burnt calories for a squirrel. I know you have to eat

00:48:12.540 –> 00:48:18.880
But you know you got to some of these guys spend all day hunting when you know what I mean

00:48:18.880 –> 00:48:19.660
It’s like well

00:48:19.660 –> 00:48:23.940
What I what I like I said one of the things that I would do if I was out in the woods like that I definitely

00:48:23.940 –> 00:48:29.540
Would be making like traps like fish traps and some of that throw them in the water

00:48:29.540 –> 00:48:33.040
And then maybe I would do a little bit of walking around for food

00:48:33.040 –> 00:48:38.940
For something to small game or whatever that because at least this way you get twice the chance of getting food

00:48:38.940 –> 00:48:45.360
I know because the guy that’s fishing is gonna burn a heck of a lot less calories and guys walking around rugged terrain looking for

00:48:45.360 –> 00:48:46.560
something to shoot

00:48:46.560 –> 00:48:49.660
Again, you’re gonna eat your rabbits. You’re gonna get your squirrels. You’re gonna get you all that stuff

00:48:49.660 –> 00:48:55.920
But um just you have a better chance. I personally would do the small game stuff even though. It’s less reward. It’s a lot safer

00:48:55.920 –> 00:48:58.960
Especially if you’re by yourself

00:48:59.240 –> 00:49:01.240
You know you’re gonna be able to process

00:49:01.240 –> 00:49:05.020
You know one of the things to I’ve noticed on these shows do some nights people get stuff

00:49:05.020 –> 00:49:08.760
And then they don’t have a way to store it or process it and then they end up losing it

00:49:08.760 –> 00:49:11.140
Some people have done well

00:49:11.140 –> 00:49:15.080
I mean I know a lot I told people in this for I think I told us on those shows if you get

00:49:15.080 –> 00:49:19.720
An animal in the woods, and it’s big then what I recommend everybody to smoke it

00:49:19.720 –> 00:49:22.360
Because if you smoke to me Lisa won’t go bad

00:49:22.360 –> 00:49:28.420
Let me say we wrap it and salt where you gonna get that much salt in the middle of the woods if you smoke it

00:49:28.860 –> 00:49:33.540
Or you know some of that you you can at least you know the meat won’t go bad

00:49:33.540 –> 00:49:37.440
You know at least this week. I’ll have it for a while anyway

00:49:37.440 –> 00:49:42.780
And like I said the other thing part of that too is rationing and making sure it doesn’t go bad

00:49:42.780 –> 00:49:46.900
But like I said it just like I said, I love watching any of these survivors

00:49:46.900 –> 00:49:49.260
So I watch them all I watch survive. I watch alone

00:49:49.260 –> 00:49:54.340
I watch all these kind of bushcraft shows cuz I I like why you actually there if you’re somebody that’s into

00:49:55.140 –> 00:50:01.020
Prepper and bushcraft and all that kind of stuff it actually is worth watching these shows you actually learn a lot

00:50:01.020 –> 00:50:02.100
I know it’s reality TV

00:50:02.100 –> 00:50:03.300
So you got to take it at arm’s length

00:50:03.300 –> 00:50:09.520
But you actually do learn quite a bit on these shows and one of the things I’ve always thought about with these shows is

00:50:09.520 –> 00:50:14.320
You know they’re giving you’re going out in the woods to earn money, but they’re giving you the camera

00:50:14.320 –> 00:50:15.920
You know that kind of stuff saying okay?

00:50:15.920 –> 00:50:19.540
Well, here’s your camera make sure you record all your footage and stuff like that

00:50:19.540 –> 00:50:23.260
So I mean I know these shows cost money to do, but I’m always wondered how much

00:50:24.060 –> 00:50:27.940
How one there’s gonna be so much as the guy that edits the video?

00:50:27.940 –> 00:50:30.540
It’s got to be so much crap to go through that you can’t use

00:50:30.540 –> 00:50:35.020
So much stuff that you just have to go through to try to make a show out of it

00:50:35.020 –> 00:50:37.660
I can’t imagine the amount of garbage video they get they can’t use

00:50:37.660 –> 00:50:39.900
and plus –

00:50:39.900 –> 00:50:43.300
I think of the mightiest place to save they don’t to send a cameraman or anything like that

00:50:43.300 –> 00:50:49.160
They just send you in with the cameras and say hey record all this stuff and make daily videos while you’re doing it

00:50:49.160 –> 00:50:53.080
I’ve always said like wow no one of these shows do so well the cost of production is down

00:50:53.080 –> 00:50:56.700
I don’t worry camera and stuff that but you do need people to edit the video and stuff like that

00:50:56.700 –> 00:50:59.360
But I always thought about that way. That’s pretty interesting

00:50:59.360 –> 00:51:04.360
Like I said folks not a whole lot of other stuff today. Just a big stack of news stories

00:51:04.360 –> 00:51:10.560
I wanted to talk about today like I said, I will speak to you on the next episode. Thank you very much
