00:00:35.760 –> 00:00:44.720
as they’re kind of as there always is but over the over the weekend folks it’s

00:00:44.720 –> 00:00:49.840
really was really kind of crazy weekend here on the homestead we were actually

00:00:49.840 –> 00:00:54.200
kind of gearing up for winter we’re having our first first winter storm here

00:00:54.200 –> 00:00:59.480
so we are kind of gearing up for that and kind of working on getting getting

00:00:59.480 –> 00:01:02.060
ready for that I’m actually gonna be loading up I was actually loading up the

00:01:02.060 –> 00:01:07.320
wood this weekend I was splitting wood and I’m kind of getting getting things

00:01:07.320 –> 00:01:10.800
ready I have more than enough but I have got a couple cords in the woodshed but I

00:01:10.800 –> 00:01:17.800
just wanted to be prepared I got all the cars filled with with gas and I was

00:01:17.800 –> 00:01:20.960
gearing up for it and it looks like it’s not going to be that bad it’s gonna be

00:01:20.960 –> 00:01:26.840
maybe three inches they were saying six and now it’s down to three so we’re

00:01:26.840 –> 00:01:31.720
actually pretty lucky we get a lot of snow here up in the Poconos Mountains

00:01:31.720 –> 00:01:37.920
but the this particular storm is not going to hit us really as hard as we

00:01:37.920 –> 00:01:44.080
thought so we’re in we’re in really good shape here but some other fun stuff

00:01:44.080 –> 00:01:48.920
happened this weekend as well we had to unfortunately about a month or so ago

00:01:48.920 –> 00:01:51.840
those of you guys that have been listening for a very long time I

00:01:51.840 –> 00:01:57.200
remember Peanut the Wonder Dog she was our pitbull I’d had her 14 years longer

00:01:57.200 –> 00:01:59.760
than I’ve actually been married my wife one of them actually had our key to one

00:01:59.760 –> 00:02:03.440
of her children and unfortunately a couple about a month or so ago we we had

00:02:03.440 –> 00:02:07.760
to put her down and she was kind of my travel mate my mate when I’m working on

00:02:07.760 –> 00:02:11.240
the working on the farm working on everything kind of went with me

00:02:11.240 –> 00:02:15.240
everywhere and I had to put her down it’s very sad unfortunately she was

00:02:15.240 –> 00:02:20.400
really her and I really close and unfortunately just she just it was just

00:02:20.400 –> 00:02:26.480
her time and we’ve actually actually over the weekend my I’ve been feeling

00:02:26.480 –> 00:02:30.560
this not to get too personal too emotional but I was actually really

00:02:30.560 –> 00:02:34.720
feeling I kept going out and I kept looking for her so I just have it over

00:02:34.720 –> 00:02:38.320
14 years of you know working out on the working on the land and going out in the

00:02:38.320 –> 00:02:44.000
woods and having her follow me and just really was just like a void there and my

00:02:44.000 –> 00:02:49.640
wife and my father went out and got me I’ve wanted a bird dog for a lot of years

00:02:49.640 –> 00:02:52.920
obviously I would never have gotten another dog in my stuff you know which

00:02:52.920 –> 00:02:56.960
was fine I mean I wasn’t like something I had you know Pia had no regrets or

00:02:56.960 –> 00:02:59.040
anything like saying a lot people say well I want this but I got this dog

00:02:59.040 –> 00:03:02.960
around it wasn’t anything like that I wanted a bird dog for a couple of years

00:03:02.960 –> 00:03:07.680
now but I was not gonna bring a puppy in with with peanut or anything because she

00:03:07.680 –> 00:03:11.640
was really good and really had her was used to just being her and I and I was

00:03:11.640 –> 00:03:16.080
fine with that but now that she’s gone like I said I feel a void without a pet

00:03:16.080 –> 00:03:19.600
and somebody really to hang out with me especially when I’m outside in the field

00:03:19.600 –> 00:03:27.680
or working outside doing stuff and so we got that we officially now have a 22

00:03:27.680 –> 00:03:34.840
week old beagle that my dad and my dad and my wife got for me and I was very

00:03:34.840 –> 00:03:39.080
grateful that they went and did that for me and we call him Opie my wife and I

00:03:39.080 –> 00:03:43.240
both big fans of Sons of Anarchy and Opie is one of our favorite characters

00:03:43.240 –> 00:03:48.200
almost every pet we’ve had since we’ve been married is named after a Sons of

00:03:48.200 –> 00:03:56.200
Anarchy character we’ve had a Jax we’ve had a Gemma and now we have an Opie so

00:03:56.200 –> 00:04:02.240
you know we’ve we’re calling him Opie the Wonder Dog now because he you know

00:04:02.240 –> 00:04:06.040
he’s a little bit there’s a lot of training to go on with him but I actually

00:04:06.040 –> 00:04:08.640
have him now well eventually what I’d like to do I gotta wait till I had a

00:04:08.640 –> 00:04:13.600
housebroken and trained we’ve been doing basic training sit you know you know sit

00:04:13.600 –> 00:04:19.880
you know you know just basic stuff sit and lay down you know stay you know I

00:04:19.880 –> 00:04:22.800
haven’t really taken him off the leash a whole lot I’ve been doing some of that

00:04:22.800 –> 00:04:27.680
off the leash stuff already to try him but he’s really not ready for that yet

00:04:27.680 –> 00:04:31.200
he’s gonna be another week or two before a couple weeks where I can even try any

00:04:31.200 –> 00:04:34.920
more that he’s not really ready for off the leash yet but working on it we do

00:04:34.920 –> 00:04:37.720
you know he really a polar I could see he’s pulling and stuff like that so we’ve

00:04:37.720 –> 00:04:41.760
been doing a lot of the state tech tech techniques we’ve been doing a lot of the

00:04:41.760 –> 00:04:46.080
sitting we’ve been doing a lot of rewarding I’ve actually have a run out

00:04:46.080 –> 00:04:50.280
there I was actually I guess you got a run for peanut not too long ago before

00:04:50.280 –> 00:04:52.800
she passed away so I have a brand new run out there so I would put him in there

00:04:52.800 –> 00:04:57.640
when I’m outside kind of let him get used to the land a little bit well all

00:04:57.640 –> 00:05:03.760
my properties are fenced in so I don’t necessarily take him I don’t necessarily

00:05:03.760 –> 00:05:06.340
take him out too far you know I don’t want to take it too far away where I

00:05:06.340 –> 00:05:09.760
can’t get him so I’ve been doing the run I’ve been doing on the leash a little

00:05:09.760 –> 00:05:12.920
bit but I’ll eventually I’ll get him to he’s off the leash but she’s gonna take

00:05:12.920 –> 00:05:19.200
some time and a lot of practice so I’m working on that right now and you know

00:05:19.200 –> 00:05:22.540
he’s a great dog and you know he’s he’s the puppy still so it’s gonna be a lot

00:05:22.540 –> 00:05:25.880
of training like I said if you have if you guys have ever trained bird dogs I’ve

00:05:25.880 –> 00:05:28.920
actually done I actually didn’t have them but I was a friend of mine when he

00:05:28.920 –> 00:05:33.280
actually trained his oh there’s a lot that really goes into that anybody

00:05:33.280 –> 00:05:39.360
that’s into any bird dogs or that if you go out and go on the well if you’re if

00:05:39.360 –> 00:05:44.380
you go out to the um I want to say it’s the outdoor channel they have bird

00:05:44.380 –> 00:05:49.180
hunting there all the time and some of those dogs can retrieve like 21 birds in

00:05:49.180 –> 00:05:53.280
like a couple minutes it’s actually pretty amazing to watch but I know

00:05:53.280 –> 00:05:57.400
there’s a lot of training involved with that and a friend of mine had one and

00:05:57.400 –> 00:06:00.480
there’s like I said there’s a lot that goes into the training and there’s a

00:06:00.480 –> 00:06:06.280
whole piece behind that but he already starts he’s already doing the pointing

00:06:06.280 –> 00:06:09.720
thing where he’s leaning forward and pointing and stuff like that so he’s

00:06:09.720 –> 00:06:14.720
he’s definitely a purebred beagle there’s no doubt about it but we’ve been

00:06:14.720 –> 00:06:20.000
I kind of took him out the other day and we’re having fun with Opie and he was he

00:06:20.000 –> 00:06:24.040
was outside a little bit my kids really enjoy him and you know we were like I

00:06:24.040 –> 00:06:27.480
said he’s already doing the pointing thing he’s he’s ready peas I’m trying to

00:06:27.480 –> 00:06:30.840
housebreak him he’s peed outside a few times already he’s also had a couple

00:06:30.840 –> 00:06:35.360
accidents inside it it’s a working progress it’s training it’s you know

00:06:35.360 –> 00:06:38.120
there’s a lot with it yet I think it’s only been two days we’ve only had him

00:06:38.120 –> 00:06:43.160
since a couple days ago so you know obviously there’s a lot that goes into

00:06:43.160 –> 00:06:47.220
it but doing the sit-stay walking him playing with him I mean there’s a lot

00:06:47.220 –> 00:06:50.120
here involved obviously the puppy had been a while so I trained a puppy to

00:06:50.120 –> 00:06:53.480
Peanut and I obviously had been together a long time so it’s been a while so I

00:06:53.480 –> 00:06:56.320
trained a pup but there’s a lot that goes in but it’ll give me a little

00:06:56.320 –> 00:07:00.720
project over the winter you know I like I said I really want to take I really

00:07:00.720 –> 00:07:04.640
was you know hunting season around here we’re already gonna go into rifle soon

00:07:04.640 –> 00:07:08.400
obviously we’re out of bird season at this point maybe we’ll do that come

00:07:08.400 –> 00:07:13.000
springtime or something maybe we even go rabbit hunting or whatever but we’ll

00:07:13.000 –> 00:07:16.620
figure it out but he’s uh you know it’s gonna be still out training usually they

00:07:16.620 –> 00:07:21.120
don’t won’t take bird dogs for training until maybe nine months to a year so

00:07:21.120 –> 00:07:24.440
it’s gonna be some time he’s got to get housebroken yet he’s got to get trained

00:07:24.440 –> 00:07:27.320
he’s got to learn to be on the leash he’s got to learn to listen there’s a

00:07:27.320 –> 00:07:30.280
lot that has to be done by me before I could send them to anybody or have a

00:07:30.280 –> 00:07:34.160
friend of mine come over and train them so there’s gonna be some time with that

00:07:34.160 –> 00:07:36.520
but though any of you guys have ever seen the bird dogs really amazing they

00:07:36.520 –> 00:07:40.320
grab the birds and they they have a tree for some of them thousand fifteen hundred

00:07:40.320 –> 00:07:45.800
feet which is pretty amazing to watch and and made they love it and the nose

00:07:45.800 –> 00:07:50.840
is on them to find it you know you shoot something in you know a brushy area you

00:07:50.840 –> 00:07:55.480
know thousand miles away you gotta have a damn good nose and that’s the reason

00:07:55.480 –> 00:08:00.600
beagles basset hounds all those kind of things are very very that’s I mean

00:08:00.600 –> 00:08:04.120
that’s what they’re made for I mean that’s what bread for and they love it

00:08:04.120 –> 00:08:07.600
they look forward to him and they date my buddy had a kind of basset hound that

00:08:07.600 –> 00:08:11.660
I swear to God that dog lived to hunt he would if we saw he saw us packing up our

00:08:11.660 –> 00:08:15.000
stuff to go hunting and he’d be ready to roll man he’d be jumping in the cage

00:08:15.000 –> 00:08:18.460
ready to go with us I mean it’s just they they get used to and they live for

00:08:18.460 –> 00:08:23.680
that’s what they enjoy their bread for this and you know so that’s a really I

00:08:23.680 –> 00:08:28.320
said so I’ll be I’ll be gearing Opie up to take him out eventually like I said

00:08:28.320 –> 00:08:31.880
right now we’re just doing I have the collar for him the training collar doing

00:08:31.880 –> 00:08:34.400
a couple different things on right now right now I have the chain collar that I

00:08:34.400 –> 00:08:38.640
put around them that obviously I don’t believe in the spike collar this is just

00:08:38.640 –> 00:08:42.440
a regular squeeze collar that when he hears the chain crack he knows to sit

00:08:42.440 –> 00:08:47.480
you know lay down that kind of stuff so we’re working with that right now we’re

00:08:47.480 –> 00:08:54.700
working with the with the with the I have one of those vibrate collars where

00:08:54.700 –> 00:08:58.260
if he gets starts walking away or somebody to hit the button it’ll vibrate

00:08:58.260 –> 00:09:02.540
them till or V if he starts you know chewing something we get the vibrate on

00:09:02.540 –> 00:09:05.500
it and I’ll just shake it so he you know kind of get his attention to get him to

00:09:05.500 –> 00:09:09.160
stop doing it so right now like I said we’re really dealing with obedience

00:09:09.160 –> 00:09:14.840
right now really dealing mostly with training you know basic basic five

00:09:14.840 –> 00:09:22.600
basics you know of any of any puppy is gonna be sit lay down you know stay oh

00:09:22.600 –> 00:09:27.520
you know the basics I think it’s what was if the bases are sit I know the

00:09:27.520 –> 00:09:31.340
basic ones I always care about were sitting lay down stay I know they have

00:09:31.340 –> 00:09:35.000
rollover which one I don’t really care about him rolling over I mostly care

00:09:35.000 –> 00:09:40.980
about sit stay and you know lay down you know that kind of so that’s mostly what

00:09:40.980 –> 00:09:45.480
I care about man he is a howler let me tell you he is definitely a howler this

00:09:45.480 –> 00:09:48.160
morning you know he doesn’t really like being in a cage when everybody’s home

00:09:48.160 –> 00:09:50.940
we’re trying to create training him a little bit just so I get him used to

00:09:50.940 –> 00:09:54.600
being in the cage a little bit when I’m where I work but he is not a huge fan of

00:09:54.600 –> 00:09:59.060
the crate right now I guess there’s still a lot more to do you know he’s

00:09:59.060 –> 00:10:03.840
again he’s a puppy he’s only 22 weeks old yeah he’s a little bit older for a

00:10:03.840 –> 00:10:08.320
puppy somebody did bring that up to me today but you know I it doesn’t really

00:10:08.320 –> 00:10:11.800
matter to me he’s still a puppy’s got a lot of life in him yet so I’m not really

00:10:11.800 –> 00:10:15.960
worried about it we did I’m not gonna lie folks we uh I was looking for another

00:10:15.960 –> 00:10:21.400
dog that last closer than the end of last weekend my wife and I had went down

00:10:21.400 –> 00:10:25.560
to the animal shelter and first of all I want to say one thing suppose those of

00:10:25.560 –> 00:10:28.720
you that are that actually do adopt in the animal shelter I didn’t realize what

00:10:28.720 –> 00:10:32.060
kind of a complicated thing that was I don’t realize how many you know how

00:10:32.060 –> 00:10:34.460
tough it is and all that kind of people really give you a hard time but that

00:10:34.460 –> 00:10:38.200
kind of stuff I didn’t really realize that but and I’ve never really

00:10:38.200 –> 00:10:43.680
adopted from a shelter except for a cat or two but my wife and I were talking

00:10:43.680 –> 00:10:48.520
about this and that and the other thing and you know not and I believe because I

00:10:48.520 –> 00:10:54.920
had a pitbull I love pit bulls my pitbull is great with their kids but I’m

00:10:54.920 –> 00:10:58.480
hesitant to get a couple year old pit especially the paperwork they were

00:10:58.480 –> 00:11:03.880
handing us they were like well these couple you know were this or that you

00:11:03.880 –> 00:11:08.040
know were abused through this couple have had issues of fighting and with

00:11:08.040 –> 00:11:13.760
having a small daughter in the house and and one that’s gonna be a teen very soon

00:11:13.760 –> 00:11:19.160
I was a little hesitant to have a dog that I didn’t know and had kind of raised and

00:11:19.160 –> 00:11:23.160
trained myself I’m not really I love pit bulls and the other two I didn’t want to

00:11:23.160 –> 00:11:26.520
get another pit bull you know peanut and I were so close and were such good

00:11:26.520 –> 00:11:34.240
buddies I didn’t want anything that would you know at all be like her and

00:11:34.240 –> 00:11:37.720
resemble or anything so I like I said I wanted a bird dog for a while so it’s a

00:11:37.720 –> 00:11:41.000
good fit for me in our area you don’t really get a lot of bird dogs you don’t

00:11:41.000 –> 00:11:45.400
really get a lot of hunting dogs in the county you really don’t most of these

00:11:45.400 –> 00:11:50.080
dogs are you know fairly you know they’re they’re mostly it’s mostly I mean

00:11:50.080 –> 00:11:54.080
honestly it’s mostly pit bulls Rottweilers and boxers were what we found

00:11:54.080 –> 00:11:56.800
we went to two different shelters and I have said the month this isn’t working

00:11:56.800 –> 00:12:01.360
out maybe I’m just gonna wait on a dog you know and then lo and behold no my

00:12:01.360 –> 00:12:05.080
friend my wife and my dad all surprised me with this and I can’t thank them

00:12:05.080 –> 00:12:11.520
either one of them enough really like I said I really was needing a pet and you

00:12:11.520 –> 00:12:15.560
know it’s unbelievable like I said how great you know you know it’s just

00:12:15.560 –> 00:12:19.480
unbelievable how you know anything anybody adopts from a shelter you can

00:12:19.480 –> 00:12:24.800
these dogs these homes there’s so many of them and you know it’s really they

00:12:24.800 –> 00:12:28.080
people really need they really need homes and if you can do it we can’t

00:12:28.080 –> 00:12:31.440
because of our current living situation maybe you know years in the road when

00:12:31.440 –> 00:12:35.920
the kids are out of the house we might but you know really we really could use

00:12:35.920 –> 00:12:39.600
a you know any of you that can’t adopt it really you know it’s really a great

00:12:39.600 –> 00:12:44.320

00:13:55.320 –> 00:13:58.800
make some money on it and the gear shop is all stuff I have actually tested over

00:13:58.800 –> 00:14:04.680
the weekend I was actually posted a product that those kind of neat they

00:14:04.680 –> 00:14:07.600
come these little hockey tiny little hot there the like size of like a silver

00:14:07.600 –> 00:14:12.540
dollar they come a little smaller but if you actually dip them in water they

00:14:12.540 –> 00:14:18.580
actually expand and they’re like a nylon material and you can actually use them

00:14:18.580 –> 00:14:22.940
when you’re hunting and in the woods I have actually used them myself which is

00:14:22.940 –> 00:14:26.100
why I’m recommending them they’re stronger than toilet paper they’re a big

00:14:26.100 –> 00:14:30.420
space saver if you don’t want one wet you need to dry per se you can actually

00:14:30.420 –> 00:14:34.220
pull it apart just dry but either way I find the material a lot tougher than

00:14:34.220 –> 00:14:39.900
toilet paper you can even use it if you want it as a dressing for you know med

00:14:39.900 –> 00:14:45.660
kit if you had to in a rush or a pinch something like that you know like I said

00:14:45.660 –> 00:14:50.600
it really is a you know like I said a real it really like I said I really like

00:14:50.600 –> 00:14:53.800
these things they work really well you can find them on the site they’re on the

00:14:53.800 –> 00:14:57.420
home page right now because I just reviewed them over the weekend but like

00:14:57.420 –> 00:14:59.940
I said if you open them up like I said you use them as dry you can use them

00:14:59.940 –> 00:15:04.520
dipping wet I actually one time she used one for a baby wipe when I didn’t have

00:15:04.520 –> 00:15:08.000
for some reason the wipes were dried out so I just kind of you dip one of them

00:15:08.000 –> 00:15:11.620
and wet you know I probably could just do moisten the baby wipe but either way I

00:15:11.620 –> 00:15:14.740
use one of them one time to try them I mean they they do seem to work really

00:15:14.740 –> 00:15:17.420
well and you can pull them over a bunch of times and get a good use out of them

00:15:17.420 –> 00:15:22.620
like I said that you know they are biodegradable so if you if you use one

00:15:22.620 –> 00:15:25.140
you got to bury it in the woods it’ll break down in at least a year or so

00:15:25.140 –> 00:15:30.200
they’re very green the company so but I find them really good I’ve actually used

00:15:30.200 –> 00:15:33.060
them a couple times in the bush I use them when I go hunting stuff like that

00:15:33.060 –> 00:15:36.220
I’ve had a good time with them so again that’s all I guess you can find all that

00:15:36.220 –> 00:15:41.320
at us site survival info dot org but that’s what’s going on what’s been going

00:15:41.320 –> 00:15:46.500
on as far as kind of going on we’ll do on a part of a couple things folks over

00:15:46.500 –> 00:15:51.080
the weekend if you were watching the news at all you would see that I guess

00:15:51.080 –> 00:15:55.740
Jimmy Kimmel and Kristen Bell because frozen choose coming out right around

00:15:55.740 –> 00:16:02.200
Thanksgiving time are being boycotted I guess or people are picketing them

00:16:02.200 –> 00:16:09.700
because the guys that are picking the pig is so Kristen Bell and and Jimmy Kimmel

00:16:09.700 –> 00:16:19.260
are I guess pro vaccine and I guess you know they were saying that this is kind

00:16:19.260 –> 00:16:22.500
of so it’s an interesting story here from Rita – so I guess Kristen Bell and

00:16:22.500 –> 00:16:25.980
and and I guess Jimmy Kimmel a pro vaccine and they are biggest they’re

00:16:25.980 –> 00:16:29.860
good friends and I guess people were picketing the Jimmy Kimmel show and

00:16:29.860 –> 00:16:33.120
trying to keep people from getting in and help people snuck into the crowd or

00:16:33.120 –> 00:16:39.160
screaming out the derogatory things that Kristen Bell and Jimmy Kimmel trying to

00:16:39.160 –> 00:16:42.200
make a statement during live taping I was they were escorted out and all that

00:16:42.200 –> 00:16:47.540
but I guess they’re picketing in front and all that um I would like to point

00:16:47.540 –> 00:16:54.020
out one thing folks and the reason why I bring this up folks is you know I’m not

00:16:54.020 –> 00:16:59.640
glad I’m pro vaccinating my children I had a friend of mine who actually got

00:16:59.640 –> 00:17:04.620
his son and he was not a pro he was not a vaccinator and I believe his son got

00:17:04.620 –> 00:17:09.280
meningitis and son actually lost his hearing because of because of it and

00:17:09.280 –> 00:17:14.320
my wife and I always vaccinated our children we’ve all been vaccinated but

00:17:14.320 –> 00:17:18.280
long story short we had a friend of ours who didn’t back then his son got

00:17:18.280 –> 00:17:22.440
meningitis and then lost his hearing and all that all because of just not getting

00:17:22.440 –> 00:17:30.000
a shot and so my wife and I are very pro vaccine having a child that living with

00:17:30.000 –> 00:17:33.880
deafness over something like this really upsets me but you do have kids by the

00:17:33.880 –> 00:17:36.840
way that are deaf from meningitis that are much older and they’re not they’re

00:17:36.840 –> 00:17:41.120
not from pro vaccine kids I don’t want to point that out they’re from anti-vax

00:17:41.120 –> 00:17:45.900
people the vaccine did not come out from the mid 90s and you do have some kids

00:17:45.900 –> 00:17:50.800
now that are in college and stuff that are actually deaf from meningitis but

00:17:50.800 –> 00:17:54.520
it’s not because they were not vaccinated it’s because the vaccine

00:17:54.520 –> 00:18:00.800
didn’t exist at that time so I would like to point that out but the reason

00:18:00.800 –> 00:18:05.620
I bring this up folks is you know there is a there’s a right and a wrong way to

00:18:05.620 –> 00:18:12.360
protest if you’re want to do a peaceful protest that’s fine you have a right

00:18:12.360 –> 00:18:16.920
your First Amendment right you have a right to state your opinion and and you

00:18:16.920 –> 00:18:20.360
know as long as it’s a peaceful protest there’s nothing wrong with that but if

00:18:20.360 –> 00:18:26.360
you’re gonna sneak into a live TV taping and start screaming stuff out during a

00:18:26.360 –> 00:18:30.860
show and now you’re gonna try to sue the Kimmel show for a refund because they

00:18:30.860 –> 00:18:34.640
want that well I mean tells you right if you read the the fine print ain’t

00:18:34.640 –> 00:18:37.240
taking man it tells you if you interrupt the show or anything like that they have

00:18:37.240 –> 00:18:42.440
the right to kick you out without a refund all that so my point is folks if

00:18:42.440 –> 00:18:47.080
you really feel strongly about something you know there is a right and a wrong

00:18:47.080 –> 00:18:50.960
way to protest I’m just like I don’t think Alex Jones is the right thing

00:18:50.960 –> 00:18:56.600
either he was just in the news the other day he’s always lately but for I guess

00:18:56.600 –> 00:19:00.880
he had a megaphone he was at a Hillary event he was screaming with the megaphone

00:19:00.880 –> 00:19:05.960
for three hours and then stuff like that just yelling derogatory comments and all

00:19:05.960 –> 00:19:10.360
that kind of stuff and you know guys there’s a right way and a wrong way to

00:19:10.360 –> 00:19:13.040
do thing I believe we have to stand up for ourselves I think we do have to

00:19:13.040 –> 00:19:16.880
stand up for our freedoms and I do believe that we do have a right to these

00:19:16.880 –> 00:19:21.040
things to make our opinion known that’s just great about this country but there

00:19:21.040 –> 00:19:29.240
is a right and a wrong way to protest and I just driving down and armored

00:19:29.240 –> 00:19:34.280
vehicle scream with a megaphone for like sitting three or four hours I think was

00:19:34.280 –> 00:19:36.620
like three it was three or four hours a couple other people stay there for two

00:19:36.620 –> 00:19:40.840
more hours like six hours they were there screaming at this megaphone I just

00:19:40.840 –> 00:19:46.240
don’t you know I know I just I don’t know people I don’t know I think there’s

00:19:46.240 –> 00:19:49.160
like I said there’s a right and wrong way to do things and and probably the

00:19:49.160 –> 00:19:55.360
other reason why I was talking about the the anti-vax people is Jones is a big

00:19:55.360 –> 00:19:58.160
one for you know they’re putting stuff in the vaccines they’re putting stuff in

00:19:58.160 –> 00:20:02.920
the flu shots they’re putting stuff and he’s part of the reason that started

00:20:02.920 –> 00:20:07.280
this whole anti-vaccination thing that’s come up over the last couple years it’s

00:20:07.280 –> 00:20:10.440
all about you know they’re putting stuff in it to mind control us he’s really I

00:20:10.440 –> 00:20:14.440
mean I find a show entertaining to be honest with you I’m not gonna lie I have

00:20:14.440 –> 00:20:18.320
listened to his show a couple times I find it in her I do find a show someone

00:20:18.320 –> 00:20:25.760
entertaining at times but you know I don’t think that you know I don’t put any

00:20:25.760 –> 00:20:29.160
stock or any value and anything he really talks about three hours with you

00:20:29.160 –> 00:20:33.080
I think a lot of it’s just yelling and screaming and trying to sell his his

00:20:33.080 –> 00:20:36.240
products and all that kind of stuff I don’t think I think there are I think

00:20:36.240 –> 00:20:39.320
there are better ways to do things and to get your point across than that that’s

00:20:39.320 –> 00:20:45.440
just me personally but there’s no denying the guy has a huge audience so but like

00:20:45.440 –> 00:20:48.640
I said but the reason I brought it up is because if you want to protest something

00:20:48.640 –> 00:20:55.320
I’m all for protesting something but just do it properly legally and and in a

00:20:55.320 –> 00:21:04.000
manner that’s appropriate you know you can state your case without being you

00:21:04.000 –> 00:21:08.920
know with without without being I mean you you know without being overly

00:21:08.920 –> 00:21:14.200
disruptive without being overly you know it you can do the right in the wrong way

00:21:14.200 –> 00:21:18.380
to do things do things the right way that’s all I’m gonna say you know

00:21:18.380 –> 00:21:22.040
recently somebody who was upset with Google and the privacy issues handcuffed

00:21:22.040 –> 00:21:27.040
themselves to the front door of Google and did a live periscope from there and

00:21:27.040 –> 00:21:31.560
yelling and screaming the police had to come and uncuff her and all that kind of

00:21:31.560 –> 00:21:34.360
stuff and take they took her away because technically that’s private

00:21:34.360 –> 00:21:39.560
property so you’re not supposed to be there you know it’s you know do things

00:21:39.560 –> 00:21:43.200
the right way you know yeah I mean you get your point across but you get your

00:21:43.200 –> 00:21:46.800
point you know when you do stuff legally sometimes things maybe come by a lot

00:21:46.800 –> 00:21:50.920
better when you you know no matter how many I guess if you want to make a

00:21:50.920 –> 00:21:53.760
statement I guess you could do it that way but I don’t know I’m just one of

00:21:53.760 –> 00:21:56.720
those people I’d rather do things the right way I’d rather make my statement

00:21:56.720 –> 00:22:01.000
the right way and this way nobody can ever hold something over my head or

00:22:01.000 –> 00:22:05.080
anything like that and plus two if you get it done if you do things the right

00:22:05.080 –> 00:22:07.780
way you can get things done sometimes if you just you want to make a statement

00:22:07.780 –> 00:22:10.720
there’s nothing wrong with that but you have to be prepared for the consequences

00:22:10.720 –> 00:22:16.840
of making your statement and fortunately that sometimes is you know gonna be jail

00:22:16.840 –> 00:22:21.480
time or or arrest or charges or something like that brought up against

00:22:21.480 –> 00:22:27.440
you so I just wanted to bring that up folks you know like I said I’m all for

00:22:27.440 –> 00:22:31.160
everybody stating their opinion I’m all for people doing things stay in their

00:22:31.160 –> 00:22:35.520
opinions you know standing up for the freedoms standing up for all that and

00:22:35.520 –> 00:22:38.880
I’m all for people listening if you want to listen to the you know I don’t again

00:22:38.880 –> 00:22:42.240
you know people say no time well you you know I don’t say I don’t like our shows

00:22:42.240 –> 00:22:45.640
I say I don’t believe everything he says I find him incredibly entertaining and I

00:22:45.640 –> 00:22:48.840
think he has a right his First Amendment right allows him to do his show just

00:22:48.840 –> 00:22:52.920
like I do this podcast yeah he has his First Amendment right he has right to say

00:22:52.920 –> 00:22:55.640
what he does and do what he does and that’s right I have no problem with it

00:22:55.640 –> 00:23:00.360
that’s his right I respect his right to do that just like I respect your right

00:23:00.360 –> 00:23:07.760
to protest I respect my right to do what I do so you know it’s a very you know

00:23:07.760 –> 00:23:11.700
it’s a very you know but I just can’t I just you know when you’re crashing a

00:23:11.700 –> 00:23:15.240
live show like that and then you don’t think it’s gonna be consequences for it

00:23:15.240 –> 00:23:22.560
sorry to tell you there is so I wanted to bring that up and you know – it’s

00:23:22.560 –> 00:23:25.600
there’s so much going on in the news with this impeachment stuff it’s kind of

00:23:25.600 –> 00:23:31.000
just I mean it’s it’s monopolizing it’s really I mean it’s it’s monopolizing the

00:23:31.000 –> 00:23:34.600
news it really is I mean you can’t turn on a news station without hearing about

00:23:34.600 –> 00:23:36.960
it and it’s getting a little bit ridiculous now I’d like to hear

00:23:36.960 –> 00:23:40.680
something about something else going on in the world besides that and that’s why

00:23:40.680 –> 00:23:44.600
kind of my problem is right now with all this stuff by the impeachment you almost

00:23:44.600 –> 00:23:51.520
have to dig that you find something else in the news besides that and that’s kind

00:23:51.520 –> 00:23:56.200
of kind of annoying and I don’t know I just don’t particularly care for that I

00:23:56.200 –> 00:23:58.960
think we should get the news I’m an artist in it as part of the news and by

00:23:58.960 –> 00:24:02.760
the way folks this is I like to put this is nothing new I wanted to put this out

00:24:02.760 –> 00:24:05.520
when Clinton was going through his whole impeachment thing on Monica Lewinsky

00:24:05.520 –> 00:24:09.160
obviously we didn’t have the internet wasn’t as big as it is now but I

00:24:09.160 –> 00:24:14.160
remember the 24-hour news cycle that was I mean it was 24-hour news of Bill

00:24:14.160 –> 00:24:17.960
Clinton and all that and if you remember Tuesday they have with the OJ trial that

00:24:17.960 –> 00:24:22.880
was 24-hour coverage of that the Court TV I think made their bones on that so I

00:24:22.880 –> 00:24:28.080
mean it’s nothing new by the way folks peep you know of these 24-hour news

00:24:28.080 –> 00:24:34.680
cycles for this news stuff and this is big news but it’s you know it’s the

00:24:34.680 –> 00:24:38.280
problem is especially with 24-hour news with 24 hours worth of news every day

00:24:38.280 –> 00:24:43.000
they have to fill in stop time and they have to please their advertisers and the

00:24:43.000 –> 00:24:47.400
only way they’re going to do that is to harp on things and sometimes it’s like

00:24:47.400 –> 00:24:52.960
come on really so one thing I thought I do want to I do want to get back to

00:24:52.960 –> 00:24:57.720
though we were talking about the storm and that and I want to point out too

00:24:57.720 –> 00:25:01.880
especially in the news we see the storms get a lot of coverage and those are

00:25:01.880 –> 00:25:04.680
something I’m not going to really complain about I’ve actually talked about

00:25:04.680 –> 00:25:08.640
that before past shows we’ve looked through them if you look through our

00:25:08.640 –> 00:25:13.200
past shows I actually don’t complain about constant news coverage about

00:25:13.200 –> 00:25:16.760
storms because I think people need to be informed that something’s coming and

00:25:16.760 –> 00:25:20.320
unfortunately it’s sad but some people a lot of people don’t even know boy like I

00:25:20.320 –> 00:25:23.880
just talked to late today when I the other day I went out and I was giving

00:25:23.880 –> 00:25:26.440
away from our shopping and I said the most grab an extra gallon of milk in

00:25:26.440 –> 00:25:29.720
case we can’t get out Tuesday which I pretty much assumed we would be able to

00:25:29.720 –> 00:25:36.120
but just in case grab a gallon of go get out grab an extra gallon so my wife did

00:25:36.120 –> 00:25:40.640
it’s amazing just a storm coming like I mean it again I just had a problem with

00:25:40.640 –> 00:25:43.960
24-hour news cycles about the weather like the weather channel Accu weather

00:25:43.960 –> 00:25:47.600
all those stuff that are 24-hour weather channels I don’t have a problem with

00:25:47.600 –> 00:25:51.120
that because you know the weather is something you really ever can’t control

00:25:51.120 –> 00:25:56.560
that whether to be honest with you is is a major thing it causes more damage more

00:25:56.560 –> 00:26:00.960
disasters and especially with the wildfires stuff that are going on over

00:26:00.960 –> 00:26:04.640
in California people really needed to 24-hour news cycle to find out what

00:26:04.640 –> 00:26:07.960
they’re gonna work what did you do if they should evacuate they should this

00:26:07.960 –> 00:26:13.040
they should that so when it comes to weather and natural disasters stuff like

00:26:13.040 –> 00:26:16.000
that I think we do need 24-hour news cycles for because people need to be

00:26:16.000 –> 00:26:19.480
informed we need to get information out to people as quickly and as efficiently

00:26:19.480 –> 00:26:25.360
as we possibly can for those kind of things political impeachment stuff

00:26:25.360 –> 00:26:30.920
round-the-clock coverage not something I really think is overly important I mean

00:26:30.920 –> 00:26:35.240
I do think it’s important but it’s not I don’t think it’s I don’t think it’s

00:26:35.240 –> 00:26:38.800
your monopolize something I don’t think it should be monopolized news when we

00:26:38.800 –> 00:26:42.760
have people that need to be evacuated for wildfires people that are you know

00:26:42.760 –> 00:26:47.720
the hip get hit with hurricane some of that I mean it’s that’s news that’s

00:26:47.720 –> 00:26:51.520
newsworthy stuff because it involves people safety and it involves people

00:26:51.520 –> 00:26:55.560
that that is what a 24-hour news channel should be for and that’s why I think

00:26:55.560 –> 00:26:59.720
it’s so very important and I do want to point something out but I think it’s

00:26:59.720 –> 00:27:04.240
kind of funny this is actually in the news the other day and I love the funny

00:27:04.240 –> 00:27:09.600
I kept this and I thought it’s nothing to do with with but I just found this

00:27:09.600 –> 00:27:11.960
kind of interesting kind of funny I remember the whole thing about

00:27:11.960 –> 00:27:15.520
Sharpiegate with Trump when they’re talking about how he modified the weather

00:27:15.520 –> 00:27:21.920
map or whatever like that remember all that crap so it’s kind of funny so the

00:27:21.920 –> 00:27:27.640
National Weather Service up here actually has the storm but the the storm

00:27:27.640 –> 00:27:32.760
is is they’re saying that the storm be over by 7 but when you look at the top

00:27:32.760 –> 00:27:38.640
of the radar it’s going on at 9 o’clock so now somebody has actually on on a

00:27:38.640 –> 00:27:42.880
local Facebook page actually went ahead and use a Sharpie marker and kind of

00:27:42.880 –> 00:27:47.280
joked around and kind of made a made marks where the storm will be at a

00:27:47.280 –> 00:27:50.100
certain time because we all know it’s not gonna be over by 7 like the National

00:27:50.100 –> 00:27:53.880
Weather Service says it is it’s gonna last by you know 9 10 o’clock but I

00:27:53.880 –> 00:27:56.000
think it’s funny someone out of the Sharpie and take a picture of it and

00:27:56.000 –> 00:28:00.120
they had you know I thought was kind of funny humorous I thought was funny but

00:28:00.120 –> 00:28:04.200
they’ve so that’s why we have a our own little local Sharpiegate going on here

00:28:04.200 –> 00:28:08.080
right now but I thought it’s funny I’m like well you know you hear stuff about

00:28:08.080 –> 00:28:10.520
you know obviously weather is a hard thing to predict a lot of things can

00:28:10.520 –> 00:28:13.840
affect the weather and a lot of things can change obviously storm fronts and

00:28:13.840 –> 00:28:19.920
you know the cold fronts and you know there’s a lot of things that can go into

00:28:19.920 –> 00:28:24.880
changing the weather so it’s very important that we the weather can’t

00:28:24.880 –> 00:28:27.800
change and I’m sure the weather service updates are important but I just thought

00:28:27.800 –> 00:28:34.400
that was kind of humorous personally I thought it was funny so I like I said a lot of

00:28:34.400 –> 00:28:37.080
things they say got things going on a lot of things to talk about today on the

00:28:37.080 –> 00:28:42.520
show but I just wanted to kind of give you guys an update what’s going on where

00:28:42.520 –> 00:28:46.640
we’re at and you know kind of give you an update what’s going on because I know

00:28:46.640 –> 00:28:49.880

00:28:49.880 –> 00:28:53.240
and I know a couple people reached out and asked about him and I just want to let you guys
