00:00:18.720 –> 00:00:22.240
Brandon: Using my mobile rig here today. Not my home office today

00:00:22.240 –> 00:00:26.680
Brandon: So a lot of stuff going on in the news as there always is

00:00:27.840 –> 00:00:32.800
Brandon: But I know it took a little break for a while being gone for a little bit had some things going on

00:00:32.800 –> 00:00:38.360
Brandon: Like I said, I do have a you know, wife family kids all that stuff. So which is what it’s all about, right?

00:00:38.360 –> 00:00:40.800
Brandon: You know, that’s why we all do this, you know

00:00:40.800 –> 00:00:42.820
Brandon: so

00:00:42.820 –> 00:00:47.160
Brandon: Some stuff that came up some stuff that came up in the news while I was gone

00:00:47.160 –> 00:00:49.920
Brandon: rather interesting

00:00:49.920 –> 00:00:52.240
Brandon: was they keep saying that they are going to

00:00:52.240 –> 00:00:56.440
Brandon: Try to try to impeach Biden, you know

00:00:57.240 –> 00:00:59.240
Brandon: Any of you guys that listen to the show?

00:00:59.240 –> 00:01:02.960
Brandon: Know how I feel about all this, you know

00:01:02.960 –> 00:01:08.680
Brandon: we all know that all of this this whole thing with the with Trump and Biden and

00:01:08.680 –> 00:01:11.920
Brandon: impeachment and all these other things that are

00:01:11.920 –> 00:01:16.700
Brandon: Going on all this stuff is a ploy

00:01:16.700 –> 00:01:23.240
Brandon: Just to kind of shut people like you and me up try to smear for the elections all that kind of stuff

00:01:23.680 –> 00:01:28.480
Brandon: Even if Biden is impeached with I doubt he will be but even if he was impeached

00:01:28.480 –> 00:01:35.000
Brandon: it’s gonna be the same thing as the Clinton in the 90s thing where it’s just gonna be a big smear campaign and

00:01:35.000 –> 00:01:40.680
Brandon: Just to make him look bad for the reelection same thing with Trump all these things they keep indicting him on

00:01:40.680 –> 00:01:43.980
Brandon: I don’t think any of them are really gonna stick if I’m being honest with you

00:01:43.980 –> 00:01:48.820
Brandon: I think it’s all there just so that they can you know, kinda

00:01:49.840 –> 00:01:56.560
Brandon: You know smear him for the elections. I mean that that’s all it is. I like I said, it’s not going to

00:01:56.560 –> 00:02:04.560
Brandon: It’s not going to affect him in any way. It’s just gonna be him just you know, it’s gonna be just a big smear campaign

00:02:04.560 –> 00:02:10.280
Brandon: That’s all it is and that and that’s you know, that’s okay. I mean, you know, but I’m just saying that’s

00:02:10.280 –> 00:02:14.240
Brandon: That’s all this is. None of this is going to really stick

00:02:14.240 –> 00:02:17.000
Brandon: None of this is really gonna be

00:02:17.760 –> 00:02:20.760
Brandon: Anything besides just Trump, you know

00:02:20.760 –> 00:02:25.560
Brandon: Just them trying to smear Biden to them trying to smear Trump and the reason why I care about them smearing

00:02:25.560 –> 00:02:30.640
Brandon: Biden and smearing Trump is and being honest with you is because all this

00:02:30.640 –> 00:02:37.720
Brandon: Is all just taxpayers dollars being flushed on a drink. That’s all it is. That’s why it upsets me

00:02:37.720 –> 00:02:41.440
Brandon: It has nothing to do with which side of the aisle you’re on because I really honestly

00:02:41.440 –> 00:02:46.680
Brandon: Think all politicians are crap. I don’t trust any politician. I don’t trust the government but

00:02:47.160 –> 00:02:51.200
Brandon: All this is is the taxpayers money being wasted on

00:02:51.200 –> 00:02:58.320
Brandon: On smear campaigns. That’s what this is. This is them. This is the way of them making them making their

00:02:58.320 –> 00:03:01.280
Brandon: competitor look bad

00:03:01.280 –> 00:03:02.820
Brandon: Okay

00:03:02.820 –> 00:03:06.860
Brandon: While not having to spend money because it’s our tax dollars that are wasted not theirs

00:03:06.860 –> 00:03:15.160
Brandon: So that’s all this is and that’s why it annoys me. Is that okay Wow all these tax dollars that are being wasted are

00:03:15.760 –> 00:03:17.760
Brandon: basically just

00:03:17.760 –> 00:03:25.120
Brandon: Just to make their components look bad and it’s up its campaign money that they don’t have to spend its free money as they probably

00:03:25.120 –> 00:03:28.640
Brandon: all say, you know, it’s all ridiculous and

00:03:28.640 –> 00:03:30.200
Brandon: You know

00:03:30.200 –> 00:03:35.920
Brandon: It just drives you nuts to see them wasting our tax dollars that could be going towards something useful

00:03:35.920 –> 00:03:43.840
Brandon: On this this political smear garbage. That’s why I think the government is such crap and why I think just

00:03:44.640 –> 00:03:50.360
Brandon: Everything it just it’s all when it comes to the government, especially the federal government. It’s just all crap. It really is

00:03:50.360 –> 00:03:55.760
Brandon: Other things going on there still I think it came out recently

00:03:55.760 –> 00:03:59.960
Brandon: Julian Assange the guy that started WikiLeaks

00:03:59.960 –> 00:04:03.120
Brandon: Still in prison still fighting extradition

00:04:03.120 –> 00:04:09.680
Brandon: Now it’s coming out recently that he has a wife that I guess he married her secretly while he was still in the embassy

00:04:09.680 –> 00:04:13.340
Brandon: They have two kids. They have two kids together while he was in the embassy

00:04:14.280 –> 00:04:19.000
Brandon: All this is coming out now in secret. She’s a lawyer and she’s trying to get him

00:04:19.000 –> 00:04:25.280
Brandon: Trying to get him, you know free and trying to make a big deal about it Tucker Carlson

00:04:25.280 –> 00:04:30.020
Brandon: He just had Tucker Carlson go with him to meet Julian

00:04:30.020 –> 00:04:37.600
Brandon: they did a big piece on Twitter about it because Tucker’s got his own show on on YouTube on Twitter now and

00:04:37.600 –> 00:04:43.520
Brandon: You know, it’s a big thing there. But you know again, you know, what what he did

00:04:43.520 –> 00:04:46.600
Brandon: I mean you have freedom of this freedom of you know speech and all that

00:04:46.600 –> 00:04:53.200
Brandon: But what I don’t understand about it is everything he published on WikiLeaks was published in The Guardian the New York Times

00:04:53.200 –> 00:04:58.820
Brandon: All these big publications and none of them are feeling any of the effects of this

00:04:58.820 –> 00:05:05.720
Brandon: And it’s all political if you really think about it, you know, Julian Assange, you know did what?

00:05:05.720 –> 00:05:10.880
Brandon: The on these other these other agencies did too. I mean, like I said New York Post The Guardian

00:05:11.760 –> 00:05:15.480
Brandon: I’m not sure if it’s a Wall Street Journal or not, but I know it’s The Guardian and a New York Post

00:05:15.480 –> 00:05:20.820
Brandon: I think I know it was New York Times and The Guardian especially they all published everything that he did

00:05:20.820 –> 00:05:25.480
Brandon: So it was I mean they all published just like he published so I don’t really understand

00:05:25.480 –> 00:05:27.440
Brandon: Why?

00:05:27.440 –> 00:05:29.440
Brandon: He’s getting the brunt of it

00:05:29.440 –> 00:05:36.720
Brandon: But always other news organizations got nothing, you know, it’s kind of ridiculous. And and do I think he should be let free

00:05:36.720 –> 00:05:39.460
Brandon: to a certain degree

00:05:39.460 –> 00:05:46.300
Brandon: Yeah, because these other publications are the same thing. Why aren’t they feasts facing any legal action? Why aren’t those journalists?

00:05:46.300 –> 00:05:51.660
Brandon: Facing any actions, so it’s just a really, you know interesting situation

00:05:51.660 –> 00:05:56.760
Brandon: That he is the only one being yes. He was the owner and the founder but about his co-founder

00:05:56.760 –> 00:06:02.640
Brandon: He would did a little you did a lot of that stuff with him. It wasn’t just Julian so I don’t understand why

00:06:02.640 –> 00:06:06.320
Brandon: Yeah, and why didn’t having this this a non-profit?

00:06:07.060 –> 00:06:09.800
Brandon: organization that’s supposed to protect him

00:06:09.800 –> 00:06:16.960
Brandon: Not protect you the whole point of having a non-profit is to you know, protect yourself personally from any

00:06:16.960 –> 00:06:22.500
Brandon: situations like that and apparently for some reason his his limited liability

00:06:22.500 –> 00:06:27.680
Brandon: Limited liability corporation or his his for oh, I think it’s a four Oh

00:06:27.680 –> 00:06:30.560
Brandon: 503

00:06:30.560 –> 00:06:33.660
Brandon: Didn’t protect him. I just don’t understand

00:06:33.660 –> 00:06:36.360
Brandon: you know, they’re you know, it’s a lot of

00:06:37.300 –> 00:06:43.380
Brandon: You know a lot of weird stuff with that that I don’t think is right and you know, it’s politics and I get it but

00:06:43.380 –> 00:06:46.280
Brandon: You know, just a lot of stuff not right with that

00:06:46.280 –> 00:06:50.420
Brandon: But while I while we’re a break – it’s actually fairly recent

00:06:50.420 –> 00:06:53.060
Brandon: apparently

00:06:53.060 –> 00:06:58.000
Brandon: Alex Jones is allowed back on X and he had a two-hour

00:06:58.000 –> 00:07:04.440
Brandon: Space and he’s called space. I know it’s called spaces, but he had a two-hour spaces

00:07:05.160 –> 00:07:07.540
Brandon: last last night with Elon Musk

00:07:07.540 –> 00:07:11.580
Brandon: And Elon was on recently

00:07:11.580 –> 00:07:16.020
Brandon: on on Joe Rogan recently talking about how

00:07:16.020 –> 00:07:19.340
Brandon: He brought Twitter back to the middle

00:07:19.340 –> 00:07:24.680
Brandon: He’s a lot of people think Twitter is too far right now and it’s it’s not too far, right?

00:07:24.680 –> 00:07:30.660
Brandon: It was just so far left that it’s back in the middle now. That was what he said. I thought that was pretty interesting

00:07:31.740 –> 00:07:37.980
Brandon: Elon has always been an interesting one to interview. Like I said Rogan’s had him on multiple times before I

00:07:37.980 –> 00:07:40.800
Brandon: Think that I mean they’re saying that

00:07:40.800 –> 00:07:49.140
Brandon: Twitter is very close to profitability, but they’re still fighting bots. They’re still fighting all that stuff on there and you know

00:07:49.140 –> 00:07:52.340
Brandon: it’s one of those things where

00:07:52.340 –> 00:07:56.720
Brandon: You know, they’ve lost a lot of people but there’s still a lot of people on there

00:07:56.820 –> 00:08:02.560
Brandon: So I again, I think that it’s gotten much smaller than it was before it definitely is

00:08:02.560 –> 00:08:09.740
Brandon: but it’s still like a hundred times bigger than true social or gab or

00:08:09.740 –> 00:08:15.000
Brandon: Any of those those are such small networks even something like Mastodon

00:08:15.000 –> 00:08:20.940
Brandon: Which is open source and free which I’m a big fan of because I’m a big fan of open source stuff. But

00:08:20.940 –> 00:08:24.500
Brandon: Even that I mean you’re talking two or three million people

00:08:25.020 –> 00:08:29.900
Brandon: Versus like, you know hundreds of a hundred million 150 million on Twitter

00:08:29.900 –> 00:08:35.880
Brandon: I mean even to socially even announced to the day that they in their earnings report that they have like a million or something people

00:08:35.880 –> 00:08:41.180
Brandon: On it, which is a lot of people don’t get me wrong, but it’s still small in comparison to the number

00:08:41.180 –> 00:08:43.180
Brandon: that

00:08:43.180 –> 00:08:50.720
Brandon: That Trump had on Twitter and what Twitter had I think two part of it and is a lot a lot of this with with Twitter

00:08:50.720 –> 00:08:54.780
Brandon: I think too is they had a lot of layoffs Spotify had a lot of layoff a lot of these

00:08:55.260 –> 00:09:01.660
Brandon: Tech companies are having a lot of layoffs right now because they grew so much during COVID and now things are back to normal to

00:09:01.660 –> 00:09:02.900
Brandon: a certain degree and

00:09:02.900 –> 00:09:07.780
Brandon: They just don’t need all these people anymore and it’s a shame. I really do feel bad by the way for anybody

00:09:07.780 –> 00:09:15.540
Brandon: Who loses their job, especially around the holidays? It really sucks and I really feel bad for them. I know by ourselves

00:09:15.540 –> 00:09:22.100
Brandon: You know podcasting obviously we I do this more of a hobby more of like a little extra kind of thing I do

00:09:22.740 –> 00:09:25.680
Brandon: It’s not something where you know, I got to make a living at it

00:09:25.680 –> 00:09:28.340
Brandon: but I know especially

00:09:28.340 –> 00:09:35.940
Brandon: Spotify just canceled two premium podcasts that were big money makers for them just because they’re not making money anymore

00:09:35.940 –> 00:09:42.180
Brandon: I know especially like I said companies like twit and big podcast networks are canceling

00:09:42.180 –> 00:09:47.660
Brandon: They’ve late did layoffs of that even smaller podcast networks just because podcasting is

00:09:48.020 –> 00:09:53.700
Brandon: Getting to be a tough market tough median to be in but it’s starting to get like social networking is this you know

00:09:53.700 –> 00:10:00.700
Brandon: Podcasting has gotten very divided over the years as far as smaller things here smaller, you know smaller podcasts

00:10:00.700 –> 00:10:02.860
Brandon: They’re getting chewed up by bigger companies over that

00:10:02.860 –> 00:10:09.980
Brandon: Social media is getting that way too now, you know, you have I mean Twitter you have true social you have

00:10:09.980 –> 00:10:16.620
Brandon: Gab you have rebel you have I mean stuff like telegram now you have

00:10:17.260 –> 00:10:19.260
Brandon: Mastodon you have

00:10:19.260 –> 00:10:24.540
Brandon: This is so many of them the list just goes on and on and on I bet you there’s at least 20 or 30

00:10:24.540 –> 00:10:27.140
Brandon: good sized social networks

00:10:27.140 –> 00:10:34.620
Brandon: And then you know and then a bunch of little ones are underneath it and and you know, it’s all about creating community online

00:10:34.620 –> 00:10:40.200
Brandon: I mean again not a newer thing obviously at forums and things like that back in the day that were much smaller, but

00:10:40.200 –> 00:10:44.540
Brandon: You know now especially social media has gotten very very

00:10:45.100 –> 00:10:49.860
Brandon: You know divided and and not just the country itself, but just in general

00:10:49.860 –> 00:10:58.360
Brandon: You know, you have social media platforms and then subsets of social media and then sometimes those medias will will get you know

00:10:58.360 –> 00:11:01.820
Brandon: We’ll branch off. I mean even something like as old as pal talk

00:11:01.820 –> 00:11:04.740
Brandon: Has even gotten you know, they have a hundred

00:11:04.740 –> 00:11:08.380
Brandon: Yeah, they have they brag they have you know, tens of millions of people on there

00:11:08.380 –> 00:11:11.940
Brandon: But they’re all split up into these little rooms and all I mean, it’s you know

00:11:11.940 –> 00:11:15.660
Brandon: It’s not just unbelievable your Facebook has so many groups and stuff like that for everything

00:11:15.660 –> 00:11:21.400
Brandon: You know social media even even isn’t even this big thing as it was it’s it’s a big social media company

00:11:21.400 –> 00:11:24.980
Brandon: But it’s broken down. It’s a little subsets of groups of things you want to follow. So

00:11:24.980 –> 00:11:28.280
Brandon: Like I said social media has really changed online

00:11:28.280 –> 00:11:31.400
Brandon: not always for the better not always for the worst, but

00:11:31.400 –> 00:11:33.900
Brandon: It definitely has changed quite a bit

00:11:33.900 –> 00:11:40.180
Brandon: I think Twitter Twitter and Facebook are the big ones but I definitely you could see that things have started to really branch off

00:11:40.820 –> 00:11:47.620
Brandon: like I says you have things like, you know, I guess it mastered on it and through social and and

00:11:47.620 –> 00:11:53.020
Brandon: Rebel and all these other stuff that are you know branched off themselves. So

00:11:53.020 –> 00:11:57.060
Brandon: It’s really neat thing kind of cool. I find tech stuff and open source stuff pretty neat

00:11:57.060 –> 00:11:59.480
Brandon: but like I said, it’s interesting to uh

00:11:59.480 –> 00:12:04.060
Brandon: To see all these things getting branched off and people finding the communities

00:12:04.060 –> 00:12:08.820
Brandon: They want to be a part of the only thing I’ve always said is it’s always tough when you find a community that you like

00:12:09.180 –> 00:12:13.180
Brandon: Because the problem is you’re only going to see and hear the things you like. It’s very hard

00:12:13.180 –> 00:12:14.320
Brandon: You have to you know

00:12:14.320 –> 00:12:18.820
Brandon: I like to hear I personally like to look at both sides of things and make my own opinion from that

00:12:18.820 –> 00:12:21.640
Brandon: And as much sometimes you don’t like to hear the other side

00:12:21.640 –> 00:12:25.940
Brandon: You know, if you’re gonna make it a form decisions, you do have to hear both sides of everything

00:12:25.940 –> 00:12:29.740
Brandon: So that’s kind of the only bad part. That’s one of the things I really don’t like

00:12:29.740 –> 00:12:33.540
Brandon: about Facebook in and about places like Twitter and stuff because

00:12:33.540 –> 00:12:38.060
Brandon: their job is to keep you on there to maximize time on the platform and

00:12:38.820 –> 00:12:41.860
Brandon: Maximize clicks and I think I’ve talked about this in other podcasts

00:12:41.860 –> 00:12:44.660
Brandon: But the problem with that is in order to keep you on the platform

00:12:44.660 –> 00:12:48.340
Brandon: They have to show you things you want to see they show you things you don’t want to see

00:12:48.340 –> 00:12:50.620
Brandon: You’re not gonna stay on the platform. So

00:12:50.620 –> 00:12:53.660
Brandon: that’s kind of my problem with social media as

00:12:53.660 –> 00:13:00.260
Brandon: The as an advertise as the you know, the thing that drives them is advertising and you know, they have to make a profit

00:13:00.260 –> 00:13:01.300
Brandon: They’re not free

00:13:01.300 –> 00:13:06.900
Brandon: But that’s why stuff like Mastodon and and stuff like your social and stuff. I think is pretty cool because

00:13:07.420 –> 00:13:12.780
Brandon: They you know, you you don’t you’re not the product so it’s a little bit different

00:13:12.780 –> 00:13:17.860
Brandon: Especially Mastodon me up to social maybe a little bit less because they are trying to make a profit

00:13:17.860 –> 00:13:25.620
Brandon: But definitely on a smaller scale they know what their their niches and you know, it’s something that but it’s definitely an interesting

00:13:25.620 –> 00:13:28.940
Brandon: Interesting stop again. One of the reasons why I bring up social media

00:13:28.940 –> 00:13:31.460
Brandon: They’re saying it now that the Biden administration

00:13:31.460 –> 00:13:34.660
Brandon: Possibly

00:13:34.660 –> 00:13:40.800
Brandon: You know paid money to these platforms to show people what they wanted them to see, you know

00:13:40.800 –> 00:13:45.700
Brandon: During the drink over it and all that but just the other day Russia

00:13:45.700 –> 00:13:52.580
Brandon: Did a whole propaganda thing by paying camp people on cameo to to spread false information

00:13:52.580 –> 00:13:59.700
Brandon: And by the way this whole thing with with and I think it’s it’s bigger now than ever before and it’s more out there than ever

00:13:59.700 –> 00:14:02.420
Brandon: before now, but this whole propaganda thing

00:14:03.300 –> 00:14:09.140
Brandon: And controlling people with propaganda. This isn’t a new concept. I want to really point that out to everybody listening right now

00:14:09.140 –> 00:14:14.180
Brandon: This isn’t a new concept folks there have been for decades

00:14:14.180 –> 00:14:19.500
Brandon: there has been you know buying articles or buying ads and and

00:14:19.500 –> 00:14:27.980
Brandon: Spreading false information all that there are things that go back as far as the Germans go and stuff like that during World War two

00:14:27.980 –> 00:14:29.060
Brandon: and even

00:14:29.060 –> 00:14:37.020
Brandon: Possibly World War one and stuff about spreading misinformation and stuff to get people to sign up for the war efforts and stuff like that

00:14:37.020 –> 00:14:41.660
Brandon: Our country has been doing that and a lot of countries have done it not just ours, but you know

00:14:41.660 –> 00:14:47.540
Brandon: This has been going on for decades. This isn’t something new. It’s just come more to light again

00:14:47.540 –> 00:14:53.180
Brandon: You know the old saying what’s old is new, you know, just the other day. I was watching some George Carlin bits

00:14:53.180 –> 00:14:57.860
Brandon: on YouTube the other day when I was just sitting around watching some stuff on TV and

00:14:58.780 –> 00:15:05.300
Brandon: You know you watch some of the stuff from you know his earlier work from the 80s and stuff and the sad part is

00:15:05.300 –> 00:15:12.700
Brandon: It holds up to today. That’s how long the little you know saying what’s old is new these issues aren’t new issues

00:15:12.700 –> 00:15:15.180
Brandon: They’re just you know people forget about for a while

00:15:15.180 –> 00:15:19.300
Brandon: They kind of taper off and then something happens and it brings it to light again

00:15:19.300 –> 00:15:23.460
Brandon: You know that’s that’s just

00:15:23.500 –> 00:15:29.220
Brandon: Unfortunately the way the world works and the way politics is but unfortunately I think now especially you know, I

00:15:29.220 –> 00:15:34.100
Brandon: Remember back in the day, you know, especially if during talk about propaganda

00:15:34.100 –> 00:15:41.380
Brandon: You picked up the news if you know the integrity of the paper was at stake when you read something in print

00:15:41.380 –> 00:15:45.460
Brandon: Um, you know that that was the way it was back then and and even on the news

00:15:45.460 –> 00:15:51.260
Brandon: You know the integrity of the of the the news organization of that was was a very big thing and they were held to

00:15:52.180 –> 00:15:59.700
Brandon: Standards by the FCC and stuff like that with the internet everybody has a voice now and and that’s it’s a good thing, but it’s also

00:15:59.700 –> 00:16:08.220
Brandon: Tough and and I will say this though the high journalism standards of back in the day are not what they are nowadays either

00:16:08.220 –> 00:16:14.060
Brandon: Anytime you have 24 hours of news to fill you’re gonna have to say something to fill that time

00:16:14.060 –> 00:16:17.820
Brandon: And I think that’s another problem too is a 24 hour news cycle

00:16:17.820 –> 00:16:20.500
Brandon: and things of that nature because

00:16:20.740 –> 00:16:25.460
Brandon: You know, you’re gonna have to make shit up if you’re gonna fill that time up and you know

00:16:25.460 –> 00:16:27.680
Brandon: it’s it’s one of those things where you know the integrity of

00:16:27.680 –> 00:16:31.260
Brandon: Journalism isn’t there anymore like it was either

00:16:31.260 –> 00:16:37.260
Brandon: Not saying that they you know the news and every paper has always slanted a certain way

00:16:37.260 –> 00:16:40.080
Brandon: I mean even back to the day when you had a lot more newspapers than you do now

00:16:40.080 –> 00:16:42.880
Brandon: but I’m just bringing this up because I know a lot about that industry, but

00:16:42.880 –> 00:16:49.020
Brandon: Even back then you don’t have you know back then, you know, you read say the Gazette and that rat, you know

00:16:49.180 –> 00:16:53.740
Brandon: Leans a little more right than the Times which leans a little more left, you know

00:16:53.740 –> 00:17:00.260
Brandon: It just like websites all these newspapers slant, you know, either direction, you know

00:17:00.260 –> 00:17:03.820
Brandon: and and that that’s always been an issue and depending on and that’s

00:17:03.820 –> 00:17:07.480
Brandon: You know always depend that’s always been kind of an issue in this country

00:17:07.480 –> 00:17:12.860
Brandon: But the propaganda has gotten even worse now with the internet and I think that’s really why it’s coming up

00:17:12.860 –> 00:17:15.300
Brandon: and I think the other problem with that too is

00:17:15.300 –> 00:17:18.200
Brandon: people

00:17:18.340 –> 00:17:20.340
Brandon: Nowadays know

00:17:20.340 –> 00:17:25.220
Brandon: More that about propaganda and about the stuff that goes on behind the scenes

00:17:25.220 –> 00:17:30.860
Brandon: Then it ever did before, you know back when you know, our parents were younger, you know

00:17:30.860 –> 00:17:35.940
Brandon: It wasn’t as easy to kind of peek behind the curtain. There wasn’t as much news reporting there wasn’t as much

00:17:35.940 –> 00:17:38.820
Brandon: Inside information you kind of had to take

00:17:38.820 –> 00:17:44.300
Brandon: Then of things that it’s word and I’m not that wasn’t I’m not saying that was a good thing either

00:17:44.300 –> 00:17:47.260
Brandon: You know, but I know you know

00:17:47.980 –> 00:17:50.820
Brandon: Especially back in the day, you know if the president said it

00:17:50.820 –> 00:17:56.420
Brandon: You know you watch people watch the president president said it and all that kind of stuff and you know

00:17:56.420 –> 00:18:00.340
Brandon: It’s got to be true and and there were you know, it was like that back in the day, you know

00:18:00.340 –> 00:18:05.700
Brandon: Especially our grandparents and stuff, you know, it was one of those things where you know

00:18:05.700 –> 00:18:12.540
Brandon: You you definitely took the news the integrity of the news and what was going on and stuff like that and a lot bigger

00:18:12.540 –> 00:18:17.740
Brandon: There’s a lot bigger thing than it is now, you know and nowadays, you know, we all question everything

00:18:17.740 –> 00:18:24.180
Brandon: We get told which is a good thing. We don’t necessarily need to you know, I mean look at this podcast for instance

00:18:24.180 –> 00:18:29.580
Brandon: You know, I mean 30 years ago. I would have no way of distributing this to the you guys that want to listen

00:18:29.580 –> 00:18:31.580
Brandon: I would have no way of getting my voice heard

00:18:31.580 –> 00:18:36.480
Brandon: Not at the scale I can with the internet and I think that’s a great thing

00:18:36.480 –> 00:18:39.980
Brandon: I’m all for people being able to get their word out, you know

00:18:39.980 –> 00:18:43.260
Brandon: Get out their information say what they want to say express themselves

00:18:43.260 –> 00:18:47.900
Brandon: We have a right in this country, but we never could because we didn’t have social media and the internet

00:18:47.900 –> 00:18:50.720
Brandon: Well, we all could have a voice. So I think it’s good

00:18:50.720 –> 00:18:55.220
Brandon: I think it’s got it’s got its goods and it’s got its bad and I hate this but you know

00:18:55.220 –> 00:18:58.640
Brandon: The government wants to start regulating things just like not too long ago

00:18:58.640 –> 00:19:03.380
Brandon: You know, he started with the whole AI thing now where they’re gonna you know what, you know

00:19:03.380 –> 00:19:09.660
Brandon: They’re regulating a you know, we have to have a you know, passing legislation about the AI Act and all that kind of stuff like

00:19:10.700 –> 00:19:16.020
Brandon: Like huh like, you know, first of all, he’s the president Britain’s just signing. He has no idea

00:19:16.020 –> 00:19:21.560
Brandon: He’s just signing whatever somebody told him to sign because I could tell you right now Biden probably has no idea

00:19:21.560 –> 00:19:26.720
Brandon: Anything about AI he just knows somebody told him to sign something. So he signed it

00:19:26.720 –> 00:19:30.280
Brandon: So like I said, you know, it’s one of those kinds of things

00:19:30.280 –> 00:19:33.540
Brandon: and like I said, you know, I just I

00:19:33.540 –> 00:19:39.140
Brandon: Just you know, like and just there’s so much of that right now where the president just signs what he signs it

00:19:39.140 –> 00:19:44.100
Brandon: Is he well-informed? I don’t know. I don’t think he is. I don’t think any of them are I think they’re just doing what’s good

00:19:44.100 –> 00:19:47.140
Brandon: For themselves so they get votes and so they make the party happy

00:19:47.140 –> 00:19:51.920
Brandon: But you know it like I said that whole AI legislation

00:19:51.920 –> 00:19:56.940
Brandon: I was listening to them like you telling me that Biden knows everything he’s signing right now. You’re telling me

00:19:56.940 –> 00:19:59.580
Brandon: He know, you know, he knows that you know

00:19:59.580 –> 00:20:01.280
Brandon: This is you know that you know

00:20:01.280 –> 00:20:05.660
Brandon: What AI is and how it should be regulated or his people told him that just like the other day

00:20:05.660 –> 00:20:11.940
Brandon: he seemed on the television said oh, you know the well people who’ve talked about my you know prices are back to

00:20:11.940 –> 00:20:14.540
Brandon: Pre-pandemic what we know the people I’ve spoken to

00:20:14.540 –> 00:20:18.660
Brandon: First of all, do you really the president knows what the cost of gas is?

00:20:18.660 –> 00:20:22.660
Brandon: You think he pulls up the presidential limo and puts gas in the gas tank? No

00:20:22.660 –> 00:20:27.960
Brandon: Yeah, he doesn’t. Yeah, he doesn’t know. I mean look at the gas prices. They’re nowhere near what they were

00:20:27.960 –> 00:20:31.540
Brandon: You know pre-pandemic levels. They never will be I don’t think

00:20:32.060 –> 00:20:36.460
Brandon: Answer see what the war going on in Ukraine and all that kind of stuff. I mean be real or like

00:20:36.460 –> 00:20:39.740
Brandon: Oh cost of food has come come back down for it was pre pandemic

00:20:39.740 –> 00:20:45.980
Brandon: Really because all the meats and all that kind of stuff is still very expensive. I don’t know what numbers they’re giving you

00:20:45.980 –> 00:20:50.920
Brandon: Mr. President, but you think the president knows do you think he really you think he goes down to the the kitchen?

00:20:50.920 –> 00:20:54.660
Brandon: It says hey, what’s that? What’s that chicken cost? What does me know? He know he doesn’t do that

00:20:54.660 –> 00:20:59.140
Brandon: Come on, he just knows what he’s told and he puts people around him to tell him what he wants to hear

00:20:59.140 –> 00:21:03.620
Brandon: So this way, you know, they can keep their jobs and that’s the way the world is folks

00:21:03.620 –> 00:21:09.120
Brandon: I mean that’s and that’s all presidents. That’s not just buying that’s all presidents. You know what I mean? Seriously, I

00:21:09.120 –> 00:21:15.740
Brandon: Mean that that’s just the way it is that we came on the news yet. And so the prices are back to pre-pandemic levels

00:21:15.740 –> 00:21:18.460
Brandon: I’m like really you think it is because I don’t think it is

00:21:18.460 –> 00:21:25.140
Brandon: So there’s that um, you know the thing Joe wanted to bring up which I thought was another thing was they’re sitting here another

00:21:25.140 –> 00:21:27.740
Brandon: 113 billion dollars to

00:21:28.340 –> 00:21:32.220
Brandon: To Ukraine, um, and what’s really upsetting me about that?

00:21:32.220 –> 00:21:36.980
Brandon: I mean Biden did announce they’re gonna put money behind some other things here in the country, which makes me happy

00:21:36.980 –> 00:21:38.980
Brandon: but they were talking about

00:21:38.980 –> 00:21:41.340
Brandon: Pulling in order to cut the budget

00:21:41.340 –> 00:21:46.880
Brandon: They were going to uh have to scare at the they have to cut budget

00:21:46.880 –> 00:21:53.700
Brandon: So they were gonna cut back on certain programs and I’m thinking to myself. I mean, I’m not for the government, you know

00:21:55.060 –> 00:21:59.580
Brandon: You know giving everything away for free and I’m not for the gun, but some people out there do need help

00:21:59.580 –> 00:22:03.820
Brandon: especially with the rising economy with the prices here the inflation and

00:22:03.820 –> 00:22:08.780
Brandon: I don’t care when anybody says the country kind of does owe this to a certain degree to these people that are hurting

00:22:08.780 –> 00:22:13.620
Brandon: That need it because the government’s really the reason why these all these prices went up

00:22:13.620 –> 00:22:19.180
Brandon: You want to be out of the country? Did it to you know, the politicians did it not us

00:22:19.180 –> 00:22:24.220
Brandon: Okay, I mean really trying to lied about all that stuff with kovin and everybody’s like

00:22:24.220 –> 00:22:26.020
Brandon: Oh, we need to keep good relationship with China

00:22:26.020 –> 00:22:31.900
Brandon: Well, they kind of lied about it kind of caused the national pandemic and now we’re supposed to cater to them, you know

00:22:31.900 –> 00:22:38.580
Brandon: You know the old saying, you know, maybe you forget but you don’t forget well the politics very much forgets a lot of things

00:22:38.580 –> 00:22:40.820
Brandon: but

00:22:40.820 –> 00:22:44.080
Brandon: You know some of the help that they’re giving these people they do kind of need it

00:22:44.080 –> 00:22:47.940
Brandon: Because of the price of things and I’m not one you just say well the government needs to help everybody

00:22:47.940 –> 00:22:50.260
Brandon: But they did cause this problem, you know

00:22:51.020 –> 00:22:55.360
Brandon: My line of work you make a mistake. You got to fix it government made a mistake. Now. They’re gonna fix it

00:22:55.360 –> 00:22:59.060
Brandon: You know, I mean that’s kind of the the way things go around here, you know

00:22:59.060 –> 00:23:04.560
Brandon: But I wanted to bring that up as well because a lot of people saying about you know

00:23:04.560 –> 00:23:09.200
Brandon: How we’re helping in Ukraine to that. Well again, that’s not a problem we created

00:23:09.200 –> 00:23:13.940
Brandon: But again, you know the government’s yeah, that’s typical Democrat move just throw money at a problem

00:23:13.940 –> 00:23:18.960
Brandon: But I mean these tariffs that we have on dry rust are they really hurting anybody? I don’t see Putin suffering at all

00:23:18.960 –> 00:23:22.640
Brandon: I mean really I mean, I think that’s the dumbest thing all this stuff

00:23:22.640 –> 00:23:25.540
Brandon: I mean I get we don’t want to get into another war but it’s costing us more

00:23:25.540 –> 00:23:29.620
Brandon: I think the fund it, you know, then we got this other thing now, you know, we’re funding two wars

00:23:29.620 –> 00:23:32.740
Brandon: But hey, let’s cut back on some things here in America for the American people

00:23:32.740 –> 00:23:35.340
Brandon: typical typical Democrat thing

00:23:35.340 –> 00:23:41.640
Brandon: But and of course the Democrats are gonna do their best to make the Republicans look bad by saying oh they don’t want to spend the money

00:23:41.640 –> 00:23:44.840
Brandon: Overseas, I mean, of course, you know that that’s what they’re gonna do

00:23:46.000 –> 00:23:50.540
Brandon: You know and then you got it’s just it’s just the way it is. It’s all crap in the government

00:23:50.540 –> 00:23:52.540
Brandon: Just so you all know that

00:23:52.540 –> 00:23:56.120
Brandon: Like I said guys a little bit shorter podcast, but I have not been on as much

00:23:56.120 –> 00:23:59.680
Brandon: I’m gonna try to get back on and dirt doing some more stuff because I really do enjoy it

00:23:59.680 –> 00:24:03.580
Brandon: But it’s been a little crazy a little hectic in my life. So I want to thank you all for this
