the way folks I’d like to point out as well I’m in my home studio today I know

00:01:58.080 –> 00:02:03.160
a couple of you guys have said the audio when I do my mobile my mobile unit the

00:02:03.160 –> 00:02:07.280
audio isn’t as clear and as good and it won’t be you know here I’ve got a Heil

00:02:07.280 –> 00:02:11.280
microphone I’ve got you know a Mac I’ve got a lot of different stuff for that

00:02:11.280 –> 00:02:16.480
I’m actually using a handheld recorder so it’s not going to be unfortunately as

00:02:16.480 –> 00:02:22.480
good as clear as my home studio I try to do it from my home when I can but I do

00:02:22.480 –> 00:02:25.960
travel for work and unfortunately this doesn’t make enough money to do a full

00:02:25.960 –> 00:02:31.400
time so I do have to travel for work and I use my mobile recorder so but I do try

00:02:31.400 –> 00:02:34.960

going here and I really appreciate all of that so thank you very much so in the

00:02:50.280 –> 00:02:57.240
news this week a couple things a lot of things actually so Nancy the Nancy

00:02:57.240 –> 00:03:02.240
Pelosi her husband that video released there’s been a lot of controversy about

00:03:02.240 –> 00:03:07.520
whether it’s real fake doctored up go ahead and watch it you’ll find it

00:03:07.520 –> 00:03:11.280
anywhere I’m sure it’s on it’s been on YouTube tick-tock it’s been everywhere

00:03:11.280 –> 00:03:17.040
go ahead and find it I don’t I I mean it looks real to me but with Photoshop deep

00:03:17.040 –> 00:03:22.160
fakes all that kind of stuff anything can be faked I don’t know I do believe

00:03:22.160 –> 00:03:25.920
it it may be real now I think you know the investigations over they finally got

00:03:25.920 –> 00:03:29.920
the guy we all know what it looks like so now they released the footage a lot

00:03:29.920 –> 00:03:33.520
of people saying it’s doctored up I don’t know I really have made a decision

00:03:33.520 –> 00:03:37.840
I did I don’t know I watched it but not with a lot of interest I think at this

00:03:37.840 –> 00:03:41.520
point we know who did it and all that and I don’t know why they bothered to

00:03:41.520 –> 00:03:44.760
release the footage because I think some people thought he was lying I don’t know

00:03:44.760 –> 00:03:50.080
but either way the footage is up you can go ahead and see it now if you want you

00:03:50.080 –> 00:03:55.080
know it’s out there so very important about that that was a very important

00:03:55.080 –> 00:03:58.800
topic like I said that they made sure to bring up several times and all they

00:03:58.800 –> 00:04:02.560
released the video and I’m like who cares if you just gave the news something

00:04:02.560 –> 00:04:12.320
to talk about so the Treasury blocked the hunter Biden investigation from from

00:04:12.320 –> 00:04:16.200
happening as of right now and I and I’m gonna be I know some people are gonna

00:04:16.200 –> 00:04:20.880
get upset me for saying this but I think at this point I think that that is

00:04:20.880 –> 00:04:26.480
actually a very good idea and a lot of guys gonna say why why why I think you

00:04:26.480 –> 00:04:30.520
know with the Treasury having to you know kind of finagle funds until we get

00:04:30.520 –> 00:04:34.160
this whole situation straightened out with the debt ceiling because you

00:04:34.160 –> 00:04:38.400
realize if they do that it’s going to have to come out it’s gonna you know all

00:04:38.400 –> 00:04:41.880
that fun it’s gonna cost money to do that and that money is gonna have to

00:04:41.880 –> 00:04:45.360
come out of the Treasury which is gonna shorten the runway for this whole

00:04:45.360 –> 00:04:51.560
situation that’s going on right now with the debt ceiling remember they only have

00:04:51.560 –> 00:04:55.440
I think – what it would April they think it’s in March or April so if they did

00:04:55.440 –> 00:04:58.560
that that would shorten the runway a little bit those you don’t know the

00:04:58.560 –> 00:05:03.000
runway is it’s the time they have before the money runs out that’s a term for a

00:05:03.000 –> 00:05:07.560
business term you know runway means how much money you have left but that would

00:05:07.560 –> 00:05:10.240
shorten the term because that money would have come out and remember the

00:05:10.240 –> 00:05:14.000
Treasury only has so much money to float this along so that would shorten the

00:05:14.000 –> 00:05:16.800
moment and I think maybe that’s why the Democrats were pushing so hard for it

00:05:16.800 –> 00:05:20.040
because they are the Republicans are pushing so hard for it because it would

00:05:20.040 –> 00:05:23.600
squeeze the Democrats even a little bit more because now they would not only

00:05:23.600 –> 00:05:26.560
would they be having this investigation going on but they would lose a couple of

00:05:26.560 –> 00:05:32.080
weeks with this whole situation as far as you know they would lose a couple of

00:05:32.080 –> 00:05:37.160
weeks on that debt ceiling argument still no thing yet they want to cut back

00:05:37.160 –> 00:05:40.880
so of course they want first thing they always pull out so we’re gonna cut back

00:05:40.880 –> 00:05:45.840
Social Security I knew they were gonna say they always pull that out first

00:05:45.840 –> 00:05:51.040
that’s always the first thing that they always say when they’re fighting for

00:05:51.040 –> 00:05:55.560
this any kind of budget cutback the Republicans always say we’re gonna cut

00:05:55.560 –> 00:05:59.400
coastal security they’ve been saying that for years then maybe they might cut

00:05:59.400 –> 00:06:02.840
back on the increases people are gonna get but they’re not gonna completely cut

00:06:02.840 –> 00:06:07.160
back so come on I mean I think maybe they’ll cut back the the increases people

00:06:07.160 –> 00:06:11.240
are getting but nobody’s nobody’s even getting less money I mean they might up

00:06:11.240 –> 00:06:14.200
the Medicare stuff a little bit that might cause people to get a little less

00:06:14.200 –> 00:06:19.640
money but I I think I don’t know they always the first thing they always do is

00:06:19.640 –> 00:06:23.800
go after Social Security any kind of public assistance and it’s a first thing

00:06:23.800 –> 00:06:28.560
Republicans always go after it’s always been a thing it’s nothing new but like I

00:06:28.560 –> 00:06:32.520
said that’s the reason why the the Treasury denied it because that would be

00:06:32.520 –> 00:06:36.000
that’s money that’s gonna come out and that’s gonna make the the whole

00:06:36.000 –> 00:06:39.440
situation with the debt ceiling the whole time they have to figure this

00:06:39.440 –> 00:06:45.520
whole thing out even shorter so that’s why they said no I think after the debt

00:06:45.520 –> 00:06:51.240
ceiling thing does get straightened out I do think that you’re gonna see for

00:06:51.240 –> 00:06:55.920
sure you’re definitely going to see investigation but I do think it’s gonna

00:06:55.920 –> 00:07:00.840
have to be it’s gonna be after the whole debt ceiling thing gets figured out I’m

00:07:00.840 –> 00:07:06.920
almost positive that’s when they’re gonna go ahead and they’re going to you

00:07:06.920 –> 00:07:10.200
know allow this investigation so I do think it is gonna happen I do think it’s

00:07:10.200 –> 00:07:14.400
just a matter of time it’s just getting the whole debt ceiling situation and

00:07:14.400 –> 00:07:19.120
taking care of first before they go ahead and and you know spend money on it

00:07:19.120 –> 00:07:23.520
also to something else I want to do something else that I thought was

00:07:23.520 –> 00:07:28.380
interesting to me anyway meta is going to restore Trump’s Facebook and

00:07:28.380 –> 00:07:32.440
Instagram accounts apparently like I said I talked to this a little bit last

00:07:32.440 –> 00:07:37.540
week but apparently they’re saying that this could really mess things up for

00:07:37.540 –> 00:07:41.040
true social saying because they’re saying that Trump might have to

00:07:41.040 –> 00:07:46.600
restructure his deal with true social because of the way that this the whole

00:07:46.600 –> 00:07:50.540
situation works one of the reasons why and this is a kind of interesting thing

00:07:50.540 –> 00:07:55.080
one of the reasons why they’re saying that tech companies anyway are saying

00:07:55.080 –> 00:07:59.220
the reason why Facebook is doing this is because one Twitter already you know

00:07:59.220 –> 00:08:04.120
already allowed his account back but if Twitter was was like the bullhorn or the

00:08:04.120 –> 00:08:07.880
way he got the information out he wanted Facebook would have been his bank

00:08:07.880 –> 00:08:13.680
apparently a lot of money it came through Facebook from donations and

00:08:13.680 –> 00:08:18.120
stuff like that I guess Facebook and donations were like were almost like

00:08:18.120 –> 00:08:22.880
hand-to-hand for him he received an incredible amount of financing for his

00:08:22.880 –> 00:08:28.200
campaign through Facebook now you have to understand to Facebook is I think if

00:08:28.200 –> 00:08:30.720
I’m saying if Facebook takes a percentage of that because they do the

00:08:30.720 –> 00:08:35.760
processing of the credit card so if I’m not mistaken I believe that the other

00:08:35.760 –> 00:08:40.400
reason why Facebook did this is because that’s a way of them you know Facebook

00:08:40.400 –> 00:08:45.040
has been struggling financially and this is a way of getting one payment pro you

00:08:45.040 –> 00:08:49.800
know payment fees to getting more people to the platform you know you know because

00:08:49.800 –> 00:08:53.080
it’s what Facebook’s doing I mean yes it’s because he’s running for president

00:08:53.080 –> 00:08:58.040
but I also agree that it’s it’s a way of Facebook driving traffic to the platform

00:08:58.040 –> 00:09:01.960
which it is it’s a way of them like I said earning money because all the

00:09:01.960 –> 00:09:05.000
people that are gonna make donations of Trump through Facebook apparently they

00:09:05.000 –> 00:09:09.560
say from the couple articles I’m reading it’s saying the majority of his campaign

00:09:09.560 –> 00:09:13.580
funding a big large portion of it came from his website and Facebook donations

00:09:13.580 –> 00:09:20.400
so imagine all that money that Facebook made on on Trump just from his just from

00:09:20.400 –> 00:09:26.000
his campaigning so I thought that was definitely something I wanted to look

00:09:26.000 –> 00:09:30.680
into and the fact that I was one kind of it’s like interesting like why are they

00:09:30.680 –> 00:09:33.520
allowing his account because they had originally said it was gonna be a ban it

00:09:33.520 –> 00:09:37.360
was gonna be a lifetime ban unless he ran for president ganks and they have to

00:09:37.360 –> 00:09:42.040
allow it and they did and so but I think – it’s also a way of driving traffic to

00:09:42.040 –> 00:09:45.380
the site it’s a way of Facebook making money at a time when they’re hurting

00:09:45.380 –> 00:09:49.340
they’re losing a lot of money that metaverse thing has not seriously working

00:09:49.340 –> 00:09:53.140
out for Facebook like they thought it was going to and I really believe that

00:09:53.140 –> 00:09:59.320
that is probably one of the main one of the main reasons why he is you know why

00:09:59.320 –> 00:10:08.100
they’re allowing it so interesting you know with that so Biden and AOC and

00:10:08.100 –> 00:10:16.820
Nancy Nancy Warren let’s call her Pocahontas um you know as somebody who

00:10:16.820 –> 00:10:20.540
is a landlord and owns multiple properties I get so annoyed when any of

00:10:20.540 –> 00:10:28.760
three of them get together specifically to AOC and Pelosi so apparently they

00:10:28.760 –> 00:10:38.540
want to roll out a federal program that will allow for regulation with landlord

00:10:38.540 –> 00:10:43.880
so simpler to have you have similar how do you have rent control in states

00:10:43.880 –> 00:10:47.020
certain states like New York New Jersey have rent control Pennsylvania does not

00:10:47.020 –> 00:10:50.720
which is where I am there are other states that don’t have it as well there’s

00:10:50.720 –> 00:10:53.960
only like Philly like Philadelphia Pennsylvania to regional so like

00:10:53.960 –> 00:10:58.660
Philadelphia I believe has rent control I think Pittsburgh does but we don’t

00:10:58.660 –> 00:11:03.100
there sir it’s very it’s more regional here since we’re a Commonwealth where

00:11:03.100 –> 00:11:07.860
as faces like New Jersey and New York are like it’s mandated by the state but

00:11:07.860 –> 00:11:15.420
apparently they want to roll out a federal you know if the federal they

00:11:15.420 –> 00:11:19.340
don’t even have a word for it we want to roll the exact words that we wanted to

00:11:19.340 –> 00:11:25.940
roll out a a federal rent control or federal landlord control so they don’t

00:11:25.940 –> 00:11:29.100
even know what the hell they’re calling it which is really annoying to me but

00:11:29.100 –> 00:11:32.580
apparently they’re saying it’s do all because of the governor’s saying that

00:11:32.580 –> 00:11:36.100
they can’t get affordable housing in the cities anymore or a lot of other places

00:11:36.100 –> 00:11:39.740
so this is their answer of course the federal government let them step in

00:11:39.740 –> 00:11:42.860
they’ll they’ll fix the problem they’re not gonna make it worse than it already

00:11:42.860 –> 00:11:49.500
is so apparently this was like a proposed by my three fit my two favorite

00:11:49.500 –> 00:11:55.100
people AOC and Elizabeth Warren and you when I say favorite people I’m being

00:11:55.100 –> 00:12:00.340
overly sarcastic just so you know so they are saying they’re oh don’t now I’m

00:12:00.340 –> 00:12:04.460
gonna go on my rant they are part of the reason why that whole nightmare with not

00:12:04.460 –> 00:12:11.100
being able to evict people during kovat happen AOC and and Elizabeth Warren oh

00:12:11.100 –> 00:12:13.980
people can’t afford to move people can’t people shouldn’t be moving because ago

00:12:13.980 –> 00:12:18.340
let them live there rent-free and oh god they get don’t even don’t even get me

00:12:18.340 –> 00:12:22.900
started they they are the biggest I just can’t those two people alone just really

00:12:22.900 –> 00:12:27.220
don’t even they’re both of them just they don’t understand they don’t

00:12:27.220 –> 00:12:30.300
understand rent they don’t understand landlord as a business we’re not a

00:12:30.300 –> 00:12:33.820
charity they are just the biggest they don’t understand it believe me they

00:12:33.820 –> 00:12:39.100
don’t get those two annoy me more than anybody in the entire house but

00:12:39.100 –> 00:12:43.020
apparently they want to say they’re saying that landlords are raising rents

00:12:43.020 –> 00:12:47.020
too high well of course landlords over the rents went up we have to make up for

00:12:47.020 –> 00:12:51.320
the stuff that we’ve lost over the last couple of over during kovat and the

00:12:51.320 –> 00:12:55.300
eviction process and people when they get evicted to trash the place of course

00:12:55.300 –> 00:12:58.680
the rents went up people we have to make back what we lost thanks to you yeah so

00:12:58.680 –> 00:13:03.200
they said the first part of this would be the with the renters bill of rights

00:13:03.200 –> 00:13:07.280
it’ll never let me tell you something okay as a landlord renters have more

00:13:07.280 –> 00:13:11.960
rights than I do okay and let me they don’t need more rights where’s the

00:13:11.960 –> 00:13:17.420
landlord’s bill of rights they’re saying that this would allow people to only go

00:13:17.420 –> 00:13:23.980
up with rent would limit rent increases okay it would allow rent control in most

00:13:23.980 –> 00:13:29.520
cities they’re saying that they’re saying that 50% of progressive lawmakers

00:13:29.520 –> 00:13:35.160
including Elizabeth Warren again my favorite person and AOC sent a letter to

00:13:35.160 –> 00:13:38.840
Biden earlier this month urging the president to take executive action to

00:13:38.840 –> 00:13:42.680
protect tenants from rising rents well how about you protect the freaking

00:13:42.680 –> 00:13:48.820
landlords how about we start with that okay in the absent in the absence of

00:13:48.820 –> 00:13:53.240
affordable housing the land the the president needs to step in and allow for

00:13:53.240 –> 00:13:59.120
affordable housing for people apparently they’re believing that the rents have

00:13:59.120 –> 00:14:04.700
skyrocketed due to rising right the landlord’s rising landlords raising

00:14:04.700 –> 00:14:10.480
rents yes it’s all started because of kovat we have to make up how many of us

00:14:10.480 –> 00:14:14.000
had people living there for over a year and never had pay rent see that’s the

00:14:14.000 –> 00:14:18.240
problem folks with with these people down in Washington they don’t know okay

00:14:18.240 –> 00:14:23.140
and most of them think okay that us land that there’s landlords you know they

00:14:23.140 –> 00:14:26.360
first of all they think the house is paid for okay which it’s not a lot of us

00:14:26.360 –> 00:14:29.760
have mortgages okay they think the houses are paid for they think we’re

00:14:29.760 –> 00:14:33.680
you know they think all landlords have a ton of money so you know we can afford

00:14:33.680 –> 00:14:37.440
to float these people along I mean you know that this is the problem with the

00:14:37.440 –> 00:14:42.760
federal government they don’t understand that landlords are not rich we are there

00:14:42.760 –> 00:14:46.600
to make a profit it’s a business renting a home to somebody is a business as a

00:14:46.600 –> 00:14:50.360
least as a contract okay but no they think all the landlords or houses are

00:14:50.360 –> 00:14:53.880
paid for the the taxes of course are not are free you know we cannot pay those to

00:14:53.880 –> 00:14:57.280
the federal government and of course the government will just say oh you know the

00:14:57.280 –> 00:15:00.080
true you don’t have to pay these taxes if you’re not making money on the house

00:15:00.080 –> 00:15:03.600
just just don’t pay the taxes that’s fine they don’t say that they want their

00:15:03.600 –> 00:15:09.720
tax money okay so this whole thing is a bunch of crap okay rent prices rose seven

00:15:09.720 –> 00:15:14.560
point four five percent year over year in November they’re saying that that’s

00:15:14.560 –> 00:15:18.360
triple it should the annual rent increase should only be two point two

00:15:18.360 –> 00:15:22.960
percent again a lot of us are trying to make up our losses and the other problem

00:15:22.960 –> 00:15:28.280
is okay is a lot of people that people are renting to have literally trashed

00:15:28.280 –> 00:15:31.600
the places and these poor landlords they had to spend a fortune to evict the

00:15:31.600 –> 00:15:34.600
people because remember evictions aren’t free though you know even though the

00:15:34.600 –> 00:15:38.600
federal government caused a problem during kovat by not letting people live

00:15:38.600 –> 00:15:44.360
there for free okay was it free to evict them no we still had a bill we had a

00:15:44.360 –> 00:15:48.760
bill for that too okay so and then okay now they’re saying that you know the

00:15:48.760 –> 00:15:52.760
problem is that they’re going up to a people can’t afford houses well I’m

00:15:52.760 –> 00:15:59.540
sorry I hate to break it to you but you know we were all landlords are not rich

00:15:59.540 –> 00:16:04.920
and we all can’t afford you know to to float people along forever okay so you

00:16:04.920 –> 00:16:10.460
know this whole thing with this with them oh we’re gonna do we need to do

00:16:10.460 –> 00:16:13.940
something for the landlord we need to do or we do something for the tenant we

00:16:13.940 –> 00:16:17.000
need to do something for the tenant well what about the landlord what about us

00:16:17.000 –> 00:16:21.380
how we got screwed was there any for was there any any mortgage forgiveness for

00:16:21.380 –> 00:16:25.800
us was there any yeah by the way folks I want to point that the federal

00:16:25.800 –> 00:16:29.360
forgiveness for mortgages that you know that was only in your primary residence

00:16:29.360 –> 00:16:33.980
that did not count towards rentals so was there any mortgage forgiveness for

00:16:33.980 –> 00:16:39.640
us no okay we all we just had to suck it up and and deal with it you know this

00:16:39.640 –> 00:16:45.400
whole thing with again these these particular specifically these these

00:16:45.400 –> 00:16:49.900
these groups of these couple people okay they cater to the people that get them

00:16:49.900 –> 00:16:55.100
elected and those are the low the the lower income people which usually rent

00:16:55.100 –> 00:16:58.120
now I’m not saying anyway low income there’s nothing wrong with anybody it’s

00:16:58.120 –> 00:17:03.140
low income hey I grew up it was tough growing up sometimes okay but the peop

00:17:03.140 –> 00:17:08.440
most people that are lower income that have no credit are renters and that’s

00:17:08.440 –> 00:17:12.780
why they’re doing this because they know that that’s their voting base and if

00:17:12.780 –> 00:17:17.620
they can get them cheaper rent and all that kind of stuff that’s votes

00:17:17.620 –> 00:17:21.760
everybody gets cheap that’s all gonna be votes for them okay they know that it

00:17:21.760 –> 00:17:25.300
doesn’t matter that the poor landlord is suffering no of course not cuz we’re all

00:17:25.300 –> 00:17:28.440
rich you know that everyone even one of us that owns properties we all tell Tom

00:17:28.440 –> 00:17:32.520
we’re all rolling in money it doesn’t matter that somebody causes $10,000 in

00:17:32.520 –> 00:17:36.460
damage when you evict them no no no that doesn’t matter all that matters is you

00:17:36.460 –> 00:17:41.140
know there’s that these people can’t afford their rents well you know what

00:17:41.140 –> 00:17:47.740
let’s talk about something else okay the rising housing prices okay have

00:17:47.740 –> 00:17:52.020
everybody’s taxes have been reassessed I have properties and I’m that I’m paying

00:17:52.020 –> 00:17:55.900
almost double the taxes on I was paying three years ago so what am I supposed to

00:17:55.900 –> 00:18:00.040
do you went up with the taxes okay trickle-down economics means that I have

00:18:00.040 –> 00:18:04.420
to make that up somewhere the person that’s the customer is the tenant so

00:18:04.420 –> 00:18:08.420
their rent has to go up so that I can absorb the taxes you want me to go down

00:18:08.420 –> 00:18:14.460
with the rent go down with the taxes it’s that simple man am I wound up about

00:18:14.460 –> 00:18:18.940
this I’m sorry folks I’m sorry I’m like in war mode about this because I am

00:18:18.940 –> 00:18:22.820
somebody who has been a landlord a long time I’ve always been fair with my rents

00:18:22.820 –> 00:18:28.220
but unfortunately last couple years economic change has caused me to have to

00:18:28.220 –> 00:18:32.260
go up with rents nothing I can do my taxes have gone up my insurance has gone

00:18:32.260 –> 00:18:36.340
up everything has gone up so I have to charge more rent because I have to make

00:18:36.340 –> 00:18:41.280
a profit I cannot own a home and be breaking even on it especially if

00:18:41.280 –> 00:18:44.860
there’s repairs then I’m losing money okay it is a business I have to make

00:18:44.860 –> 00:18:48.220
money it’s a price it’s a business where either their profit needs to be made

00:18:48.220 –> 00:18:53.340
there’s repairs that have to be done there is inspections there is you know

00:18:53.340 –> 00:18:57.700
may upkeep and all that and I can’t run I can’t have houses that are losing

00:18:57.700 –> 00:19:01.060
money I have to make a profit because there are years that it’s gonna be big

00:19:01.060 –> 00:19:04.740
repairs okay you know they don’t understand this you know every you know

00:19:04.740 –> 00:19:09.060
they don’t they they you’re dealing with people that probably never rented to

00:19:09.060 –> 00:19:12.340
people they don’t know they just want affordable housing so that they can get

00:19:12.340 –> 00:19:16.820
their votes okay because that’s what it comes down to they call us this problem

00:19:16.820 –> 00:19:24.300
by upping the taxes by upping the fees by upping energy prices okay and they

00:19:24.300 –> 00:19:28.820
caused this problem how about this bring me instead of instead of making me have

00:19:28.820 –> 00:19:33.100
lower rent how about you lower their heat bills or lower their gas bills okay

00:19:33.100 –> 00:19:37.020
you know that there’s there’s other places that the change can be made not

00:19:37.020 –> 00:19:42.420
always a landlord’s fault okay I’m fair with my tenants I repair everything when

00:19:42.420 –> 00:19:49.940
it breaks I have always been a good landlord like that but but okay if if if

00:19:49.940 –> 00:19:53.140
the if I can’t go up at the rents because of the taxes and all that okay

00:19:53.140 –> 00:19:56.420
and I’m losing I can’t lose money every month I can’t lose money every month in

00:19:56.420 –> 00:20:01.020
a house I can’t do it there’s no money I’ll go bankrupt okay there’s no money

00:20:01.020 –> 00:20:04.380
that way I have to go up with the rent so that I can have put money aside so

00:20:04.380 –> 00:20:08.260
when there is repairs or damages I can have paid for them okay if I you know

00:20:08.260 –> 00:20:11.620
they don’t understand that they don’t understand that those higher prices are

00:20:11.620 –> 00:20:16.020
now because the landlords have to make up for their losses make up for put money

00:20:16.020 –> 00:20:20.020
aside so they can pay the higher taxes pay the higher fees pay that you know

00:20:20.020 –> 00:20:24.460
that there’s so much more their inflation problem caused that how about

00:20:24.460 –> 00:20:27.140
the fact that the interest rates keep going up and some of these poor

00:20:27.140 –> 00:20:31.540
landlords now their mortgages have gone up two and three times what you know

00:20:31.540 –> 00:20:35.100
let’s talk about that problem nobody talked not only in order to have fixed

00:20:35.100 –> 00:20:38.140
mortgage rates okay they have adjustable mortgages sometimes because they’re

00:20:38.140 –> 00:20:42.140
commercial property some of them okay how about the poor landlord that because

00:20:42.140 –> 00:20:44.940
you keep telling the federal government go up with the interest rate go up with

00:20:44.940 –> 00:20:48.340
the interest rate to slow the economy down now you’d have landlords that have

00:20:48.340 –> 00:20:51.740
had to go up with their rent because they’re freaking mortgage payments have

00:20:51.740 –> 00:20:55.140
gone up two or three times what they were three four years ago let’s talk

00:20:55.140 –> 00:20:58.980
about that no of course not they’re never gonna talk about that they don’t

00:20:58.980 –> 00:21:03.740
that’s not there there’s no money in that come on there’s no votes in in in

00:21:03.740 –> 00:21:07.100
that there’s only votes in making cheaper rent and making a landlord

00:21:07.100 –> 00:21:11.500
suffer so that they can give votes well there’s not many times I get wound up on

00:21:11.500 –> 00:21:15.940
this podcast folks but I’m really wound up about this because they caused this

00:21:15.940 –> 00:21:21.980
problem with taxes okay and with interest rates they cause this problem

00:21:21.980 –> 00:21:26.520
and now they’re asking Biden to take an executive executive order to fix the

00:21:26.520 –> 00:21:30.820
problem for the tenant no how about you take executive order and fix the problem

00:21:30.820 –> 00:21:33.980
for the landlord how about that and then he doesn’t have to go up with the rent

00:21:33.980 –> 00:21:41.340
oh boy am I wound up a boy oh boy am I wound up without this because this is

00:21:41.340 –> 00:21:47.380
just something that to me it’s just it’s beyond it’s beyond stupid and they don’t

00:21:47.380 –> 00:21:50.580
they don’t understand how business works most of them don’t and that’s why you

00:21:50.580 –> 00:21:55.940
know like this one today White House approved 16 million people okay first

00:21:55.940 –> 00:22:02.020
student loan forgiveness plans okay whether they see relief or not depends

00:22:02.020 –> 00:22:05.500
on Supreme Court we don’t know yet but okay how about the people like me who

00:22:05.500 –> 00:22:09.700
didn’t get any student loan forgiveness I just had a how to pay our student

00:22:09.700 –> 00:22:13.100
loans what about us what am I getting my student loan forgiveness back I paid all

00:22:13.100 –> 00:22:16.780
my student loans for 15 years what am I to give me give me some forgiveness for

00:22:16.780 –> 00:22:21.840
the money that I paid but no they don’t do that it’s only you know they’re

00:22:21.840 –> 00:22:27.100
catering to then I’ll tell you why and I hate to say this but and I’m not saying

00:22:27.100 –> 00:22:30.260
everybody that went to college got a good job and all that and I know that’s

00:22:30.260 –> 00:22:34.500
not his case but here’s my other issue there’s a reason why he keeps forgiving

00:22:34.500 –> 00:22:40.060
student loan debt okay one because the millennial base is his main base of

00:22:40.060 –> 00:22:45.620
support them every time he see he helped somebody wipe away a loan that’s it that

00:22:45.620 –> 00:22:52.140
that’s a vote okay that’s the way it is and it’s that way on the Republican side

00:22:52.140 –> 00:22:55.360
every time they make something better for somebody else that’s a vote okay

00:22:55.360 –> 00:23:00.100
that’s the way this world works but but but they know the millennial base is

00:23:00.100 –> 00:23:04.780
Biden’s base now the most your millennial bases are people coming out

00:23:04.780 –> 00:23:08.320
of college in college or will be going to college this way is all student loan

00:23:08.320 –> 00:23:17.020
forgiveness stuff because that’s votes but nobody talks about that okay now

00:23:17.020 –> 00:23:20.200
they’re talking about in New Hampshire they’re saying that there’s they call

00:23:20.200 –> 00:23:24.760
Trump fatigue is apparently he’s been he did so much campaigning in New Hampshire

00:23:24.760 –> 00:23:29.100
apparently now a lot of people are apparently saying the people he’s gonna

00:23:29.100 –> 00:23:32.500
have to stay out of New Hampshire people are they’re saying his rally numbers and

00:23:32.500 –> 00:23:35.580
stuff like that are down because people are kind of getting sick from always

00:23:35.580 –> 00:23:39.500
campaigning there so I thought that was an interesting story by the way liquid

00:23:39.500 –> 00:23:50.740
ivade they’re not a sponsor I wish they were a great company guys and you guys

00:23:50.740 –> 00:23:54.420
if you know if you’re like me and I don’t like water I know it’s the best

00:23:54.420 –> 00:23:59.940
thing for you but I don’t like water so liquid iv you pour a little stick in you

00:23:59.940 –> 00:24:04.500
get nutrients you get hydration they’re great companies other companies out

00:24:04.500 –> 00:24:10.420
there dude there’s a diet what’s it called ice drops and so there’s a lot of

00:24:10.420 –> 00:24:13.660
different stuff out there but I like liquid iv just gonna have a lot of

00:24:13.660 –> 00:24:17.660
choices with flavors but if you’re like me and you don’t like water I really

00:24:17.660 –> 00:24:21.660
recommend liquid iv like I said they are not a sponsor guys but the reason why I

00:24:21.660 –> 00:24:26.220
bring them up is if you are going out in the woods hunting or camping and you’re

00:24:26.220 –> 00:24:29.100
gonna be sweating and exerting yourself or if you’re going hiking in the summer

00:24:29.100 –> 00:24:33.180
if you put a little liquid iv in there it helps give the water a little extra

00:24:33.180 –> 00:24:37.780
oomph like I said it gives you sodium it gives you all different kinds of

00:24:37.780 –> 00:24:41.180
nutrients and stuff like that that’ll help keep you going it’s like kind of

00:24:41.180 –> 00:24:45.060
like Gatorade but without the extra sugar so I strongly recommend that

00:24:45.060 –> 00:24:49.660
liquid iv they’re not a sponsor I don’t get paid a dollar for that ad but like

00:24:49.660 –> 00:24:54.700
I do really I do like the product and I really I do use it so I recommend it and

00:24:54.700 –> 00:24:58.620
it’s not expensive you can get a box of it for like three four bucks at Walmart

00:24:58.620 –> 00:25:01.380
it’s one of the very few things that with the cost of inflation is still

00:25:01.380 –> 00:25:04.980
pretty cheap the other thing that surprised me too about cheap I want to

00:25:04.980 –> 00:25:07.980
talk about that for a minute has anybody else noticed that that’s the one thing

00:25:07.980 –> 00:25:11.740
that hasn’t gone up during inflation and hasn’t been to shrinkflation is Amazon

00:25:11.740 –> 00:25:16.700
Arizona tea it’s still 99 cents and it’s still 20 ounces as big cans just want to

00:25:16.700 –> 00:25:20.860
point that out that’s the one thing that hasn’t gone up I don’t drink as much of

00:25:20.860 –> 00:25:25.140
it as they used to cuz I’ve been dieting lost losing weight but I’m trying to get

00:25:25.140 –> 00:25:30.260
in shape but I have noticed that but when I was drinking I did notice that tea

00:25:30.260 –> 00:25:35.380
is the one thing that has not gone up for has not gone up during the all this

00:25:35.380 –> 00:25:39.340
stuff I was kind of surprised I’m my version of tea like to go up to like a

00:25:39.340 –> 00:25:43.420
dollar five or something like that or go up even a dollar one penny more I’m I’m

00:25:43.420 –> 00:25:47.620
really I’m waiting for I know it people say it’s not gonna happen but I don’t

00:25:47.620 –> 00:25:50.980
know I think it eventually it’s it’s gonna have to I just I think there’s

00:25:50.980 –> 00:25:53.740
gonna come a point where you’re just gonna have to go up at the price if

00:25:53.740 –> 00:26:00.140
they’re gonna stay you know make money so some others some other things that do

00:26:00.140 –> 00:26:07.100
want to talk about apparently in Midtown New York Mayor Adams he wants to convert

00:26:07.100 –> 00:26:12.100
some of Midtown offices into apartments I want to talk about this for a minute

00:26:12.100 –> 00:26:15.420
only because well one we’re talking about rent things over that so that was

00:26:15.420 –> 00:26:19.180
one of the reasons why I wrote this story down but I want to point out too I

00:26:19.180 –> 00:26:22.380
think that is a lot of people said oh that’s prime real estate for businesses

00:26:22.380 –> 00:26:28.220
but I know since kovin a lot of businesses have gone remote a lot of

00:26:28.220 –> 00:26:32.980
people like uber and places like like people like Twitter and places like that

00:26:32.980 –> 00:26:36.940
have not reopened their offices in New York especially the dot-com people and

00:26:36.940 –> 00:26:39.980
some businesses obviously did go out of business during kovin but I know

00:26:39.980 –> 00:26:43.620
specifically dot-com some of that a lot of companies that could work remote did

00:26:43.620 –> 00:26:47.460
work remote and a lot of that office space has been empty for over a year now

00:26:47.460 –> 00:26:52.220
and I think he’s trying to because I don’t forget to it’s empty that means

00:26:52.220 –> 00:26:55.820
people that means less people in the city less people spending money in the

00:26:55.820 –> 00:27:00.140
city you know I’m sure there’s some probably maybe issues of taxes in that

00:27:00.140 –> 00:27:04.060
building but I think he wants to turn it into higher end I mean it’s gonna be

00:27:04.060 –> 00:27:07.220
high-end apartments there’s no way it’s gonna be affordable for Johnny you know

00:27:07.220 –> 00:27:11.820
you know the little guy but if they turn these they turn those up those places

00:27:11.820 –> 00:27:16.660
into apartments I’m sure people will buy them and use them but this is all still

00:27:16.660 –> 00:27:21.420
so roll you know I would say overflow from code but it’s all basically because

00:27:21.420 –> 00:27:25.880
of kovin you know a lot of businesses especially dot-coms did not go did not

00:27:25.880 –> 00:27:28.780
open their offices back up in the city and they’re just letting people work

00:27:28.780 –> 00:27:33.660
from home now so I think he’s kind of looking at that office space saying hey

00:27:33.660 –> 00:27:38.020
what can I do to kind of get this back on you know get these people renters

00:27:38.020 –> 00:27:44.180
whoever back on the real businesses renter somebody in those buildings are

00:27:44.180 –> 00:27:47.540
not vacant in because that’s New York City man I just prime real estate right

00:27:47.540 –> 00:27:52.340
in New York City so like I said I’m not really I kind of figured they were gonna

00:27:52.340 –> 00:27:56.060
do that and I think it is a guy I don’t think New York New York is the business

00:27:56.060 –> 00:28:00.620
capital of the world but I I just don’t I think converting them the apartments

00:28:00.620 –> 00:28:04.220
high-end apartments might be the best way to go because I just don’t see

00:28:04.220 –> 00:28:09.020
people going back to the cities like they used to I don’t see many many I

00:28:09.020 –> 00:28:14.380
know a lot of computer company a lot of businesses tech companies especially

00:28:14.380 –> 00:28:17.980
that are just starting remotely they’re not getting offices anymore they’re just

00:28:17.980 –> 00:28:22.140
letting people work remotely and this way they have a bigger pool of people to

00:28:22.140 –> 00:28:25.780
work from and you know to get as far as employees and some of that so I just

00:28:25.780 –> 00:28:31.980
don’t see you know those those places being occupied by especially tech

00:28:31.980 –> 00:28:35.700
companies or any real company anytime soon especially with all these

00:28:35.700 –> 00:28:39.220
technology layoffs right now that are going on with all these big tech

00:28:39.220 –> 00:28:44.660
companies I just I don’t I mean doc I mean now’s a really tough time with this

00:28:44.660 –> 00:28:48.980
economy to start a business let alone start a tech business and afford the

00:28:48.980 –> 00:28:53.480
rent of something like a New York so I have a feeling that what he’s thinking

00:28:53.480 –> 00:28:56.900
is okay well let’s let’s at least get these apart really turn you know we

00:28:56.900 –> 00:28:59.780
spend money to convert these into apartments and at least this way we get

00:28:59.780 –> 00:29:03.200
people back in them because I could tell you right now there are especially with

00:29:03.200 –> 00:29:05.780
the way these tech layoffs are having there’s a lot of programmers right now

00:29:05.780 –> 00:29:12.340
and you know if you are a tech company that you know needs programmers now’s

00:29:12.340 –> 00:29:16.380
the time to hire but I could tell you right now I know a lot of tech startups

00:29:16.380 –> 00:29:20.220
are not going to be spending money on New York rent places and a lot of

00:29:20.220 –> 00:29:26.360
businesses in general especially you know any kind of stores and and and open

00:29:26.360 –> 00:29:29.580
you know big boxers of that are not going to be going into New York City

00:29:29.580 –> 00:29:34.020
right now with the cost of everything so like I said there you know I think he’s

00:29:34.020 –> 00:29:38.180
looking at it as okay this is if we put these as apartments at least they’ll be

00:29:38.180 –> 00:29:45.120
used and they won’t be sitting here you know I’m just collecting dust those of

00:29:45.120 –> 00:29:48.300
you that are listening you can hear what you’re hearing in the background here is

00:29:48.300 –> 00:29:53.820
Opie the the Wonder Dog he’s apparently he wants attention and that’s why he’s

00:29:53.820 –> 00:29:58.460
here and then Scruffy my other little guy is is here as well so the the boys

00:29:58.460 –> 00:30:01.860
want attention now they’re walking around in my office so I’m sorry for all

00:30:01.860 –> 00:30:07.580
this all the noise in the background so speaking of tax relief apparently

00:30:07.580 –> 00:30:11.340
Michigan if you’re in Michigan they do they’re trying to approve legislation

00:30:11.340 –> 00:30:15.980
for 1 billion in tax relief so apparently what they’re doing is they

00:30:15.980 –> 00:30:20.580
want you it’s good you’re not gonna see it like it’s like in the cash like in

00:30:20.580 –> 00:30:22.500
the form of stimulus check but what you’re gonna actually do is they’re

00:30:22.500 –> 00:30:25.860
gonna apparently in your tax return if you live in Michigan you’re gonna get

00:30:25.860 –> 00:30:31.460
some tax rebates back first part of your income tax to actually try to try to

00:30:31.460 –> 00:30:34.360
help people and help stimulate Michigan apparently Michigan’s they’re having

00:30:34.360 –> 00:30:39.060
some issues over in Michigan I guess especially with the same layoffs and

00:30:39.060 –> 00:30:43.460
stuff of that so they’re trying to help stimulate that that particular state by

00:30:43.460 –> 00:30:47.940
giving refunds back for some of the stuff you know not refunds back but

00:30:47.940 –> 00:30:53.660
money back in people’s tax refund that’s what I’m trying to say so Hasbro had a

00:30:53.660 –> 00:30:57.780
round of layoffs the toy company they had a round of layoffs so I wanted to

00:30:57.780 –> 00:31:01.260
point that out you be the work that you know I keep every time I see these

00:31:01.260 –> 00:31:04.140
layoffs I put them down here on the list of something to talk about because it

00:31:04.140 –> 00:31:06.620
just shows you how many places I mean it’s not just tech company it’s

00:31:06.620 –> 00:31:10.340
everybody that’s laying off but I just want to point out this is just a sign of

00:31:10.340 –> 00:31:15.180
the upcoming you know I mean this is basically a sign of the upcoming

00:31:15.180 –> 00:31:19.540
recession is what this is all these ladies is what happens I mean layoffs I

00:31:19.540 –> 00:31:22.700
mean this is exactly what I’m 2008 the only difference is the housing market

00:31:22.700 –> 00:31:27.900
hasn’t crashed yet but everybody losing their jobs it very well might so because

00:31:27.900 –> 00:31:31.340
I pointed that so I was like well the housing market is great yes but between

00:31:31.340 –> 00:31:36.180
Facebook Microsoft Google and every other company Amazon and then all these

00:31:36.180 –> 00:31:41.380
other companies that are laying off it’s a very good possibility that the

00:31:41.380 –> 00:31:44.980
housing market might might you know crumble they’re like oh there’s tons of

00:31:44.980 –> 00:31:49.940
people places everybody’s looking for help and I’m like yes but you’re talking

00:31:49.940 –> 00:31:52.900
about and I’m not saying anything I’m not seeing any bad about anything but

00:31:52.900 –> 00:31:57.300
the people the places that are looking for workers are usually the blue-collar

00:31:57.300 –> 00:32:04.180
restaurants dock workers stuff like that okay the people that that we’re talking

00:32:04.180 –> 00:32:08.780
about that work at places like Microsoft Google those are homeowners okay most of

00:32:08.780 –> 00:32:12.340
them are homeowners okay the people that have jobs like that or have worked at a

00:32:12.340 –> 00:32:17.900
company for 15 10 15 years 20 years they bought a home by now okay so the people

00:32:17.900 –> 00:32:21.820
that are being laid off right now are homeowners okay now I’m not saying that’s

00:32:21.820 –> 00:32:25.320
gonna cause them to lose some might some might lose their houses because they

00:32:25.320 –> 00:32:28.080
can’t afford to pay the mortgages especially if the mortgages have gone up

00:32:28.080 –> 00:32:33.780
due to the increase in the interest rates okay so this is just a like I said

00:32:33.780 –> 00:32:39.140
the big the layoff when you have big companies laying off like this those are

00:32:39.140 –> 00:32:42.340
people that are homeowners probably and I’m not saying anything bad but but

00:32:42.340 –> 00:32:45.300
generally your people that work at your lower-income jobs that are looking for

00:32:45.300 –> 00:32:50.500
help right now like McDonald’s and you know any of those kind of places those

00:32:50.500 –> 00:32:55.460
generally are not homeowners those are renters so and I’m not and I’m not saying

00:32:55.460 –> 00:32:59.540
anything negative I’m just telling you statistics so the people right now that

00:32:59.540 –> 00:33:03.340
are losing their job at these big companies or homeowners and that’s that’s

00:33:03.340 –> 00:33:09.500
that’s just step one that’s what started in 2008 was layoffs then all of a sudden

00:33:09.500 –> 00:33:13.420
the housing the housing bubble the stock market crashed and the layoffs happened

00:33:13.420 –> 00:33:16.220
this time it’s gonna be a little bit different it’s gonna be the layoffs and

00:33:16.220 –> 00:33:19.980
then the housing crash so it’s gonna it’s a you know it’s gonna be the

00:33:19.980 –> 00:33:23.500
similar to the same situation just the occurrence of events is gonna be a

00:33:23.500 –> 00:33:27.620
little bit different so that’s what I’m telling you right now it’s you know

00:33:27.620 –> 00:33:31.700
people a ton lots of people lost their good-paying jobs give it it now they’re

00:33:31.700 –> 00:33:34.420
gonna fall behind on their mortgages give it a couple of years and you’re

00:33:34.420 –> 00:33:38.220
gonna watch the housing market crash watch I could almost guarantee that’s

00:33:38.220 –> 00:33:42.580
what’s gonna happen so like I said just pointing it out not I hope it doesn’t

00:33:42.580 –> 00:33:45.000
have for these people I hope that I don’t want anybody ever have to go

00:33:45.000 –> 00:33:48.860
through losing their home god forbid I pray that these people don’t and I feel

00:33:48.860 –> 00:33:52.340
bad anytime I hear layoffs I always feel bad for people because it’s gonna affect

00:33:52.340 –> 00:33:57.460
their whole lives but that is you know the truth of the people at these kind of

00:33:57.460 –> 00:34:02.120
jobs are people that are generally your homeowner so let’s let’s see what

00:34:02.120 –> 00:34:09.260
happens bed and bath and beyond declaring bankruptcy you know it just

00:34:09.260 –> 00:34:13.100
shows you to how things have changed those of you that watch Shark Tank I

00:34:13.100 –> 00:34:15.660
know a lot of you guys we’ve talked about Shark Tank on the on our rebel

00:34:15.660 –> 00:34:20.740
social that be a couple times a lot of you guys have watched Shark Tank but

00:34:20.740 –> 00:34:23.700
that used to be the biggest thing at your all I’ll get you know Laurie

00:34:23.700 –> 00:34:27.220
Grineer I’ll get you in bed bath and beyond I’ll get you in bed bath and

00:34:27.220 –> 00:34:31.020
beyond that was always a big thing that she can get anybody on QVC or bed bath

00:34:31.020 –> 00:34:35.860
and beyond apparently bed bath and beyond is not doing it too hot and

00:34:35.860 –> 00:34:40.420
declaring bankruptcy I think it’s only a matter of time for the they’re they’re

00:34:40.420 –> 00:34:44.060
gonna be out to eventually I think I think places like bed bath and beyond

00:34:44.060 –> 00:34:46.580
like they’re gonna be like another Sears there’s gonna go out because it there’s

00:34:46.580 –> 00:34:49.500
only there’s only so much stuff you could sell in a store like that just

00:34:49.500 –> 00:34:53.580
like Sears there’s only so I mean Kmart I mean there’s only so much you know I

00:34:53.580 –> 00:34:56.780
mean Target’s gonna be your stay around Walmart’s gonna stay around stuff like

00:34:56.780 –> 00:35:00.980
that but I think you’re gonna see like places like Michaels and stuff like that

00:35:00.980 –> 00:35:04.120
eventually I think you’re gonna see even Hobby Lobby I think eventually you can

00:35:04.120 –> 00:35:08.260
see a lot of these a lot of these big-box niche stores eventually gonna go

00:35:08.260 –> 00:35:10.700
out I think stuff like five below and things like that that are affordable

00:35:10.700 –> 00:35:14.380
probably gonna stay around but I do think a lot of these big-box and niche

00:35:14.380 –> 00:35:18.580
stores eventually are going to gonna go out of business I just think it’s it’s

00:35:18.580 –> 00:35:23.540
I think it’s just inevitable unfortunately other news that I thought

00:35:23.540 –> 00:35:30.380
was very important due to labor shortages again in Walmart and CVS pharmacy by the

00:35:30.380 –> 00:35:33.380
way folks I like to point out to you though those pharmacy techs are the

00:35:33.380 –> 00:35:36.700
pharmacy people themselves are very you know last couple of pharmacy techs are

00:35:36.700 –> 00:35:39.220
basically anybody they hire off the street and they teach just train them

00:35:39.220 –> 00:35:43.720
while they work very hard and there’s stuff to know they’re not the the actual

00:35:43.720 –> 00:35:48.620
pharmacist but apparently due to how do you do shortages they’re going to be

00:35:48.620 –> 00:35:52.660
adjusting hours at the pharmacy not Walmart itself Walmart self still gonna

00:35:52.660 –> 00:35:57.340
be up in CVS still gonna be up but the pharmacy is going to be adjusting hours

00:35:57.340 –> 00:36:01.720
so very important those of you that do use the CVS and Walmart pharmacy we use

00:36:01.720 –> 00:36:07.060
Walmart we used to use CVS but they’re gonna be adjusting their hours so very

00:36:07.060 –> 00:36:11.740
very important if you do use any of those places to know that the hours are

00:36:11.740 –> 00:36:18.340
going to be adjusted so important information for you guys there AAA made

00:36:18.340 –> 00:36:23.040
an announcement the other day I printed this one out print it out but you know

00:36:23.040 –> 00:36:26.460
saved it or whatever remember when you used to print stuff out I mean nobody

00:36:26.460 –> 00:36:29.400
pretty pretty print out concert tickets and stuff for that anymore I mean we all

00:36:29.400 –> 00:36:32.880
do it with our phones now either Android or iPhone everybody I weird on my

00:36:32.880 –> 00:36:36.740
other day that nobody prints stuff prints concert tickets out nobody prints

00:36:36.740 –> 00:36:41.120
passes anymore stuff like that all that’s all digital now like like what

00:36:41.120 –> 00:36:45.160
was it like and I’m I don’t you fly I don’t fly on a plane too much most of my

00:36:45.160 –> 00:36:49.680
stuff is driving but like my wife and I were the other day she was the last time

00:36:49.680 –> 00:36:52.480
you were on a plane like you know like you don’t nobody prints their plane

00:36:52.480 –> 00:36:58.520
ticket anymore it’s all on their phones anymore but AAA had saying some states

00:36:58.520 –> 00:37:04.120
have experienced much bigger gains in gas saying Colorado it’s they’ve seen

00:37:04.120 –> 00:37:12.760
98% increase 98 cent increases Georgia 70 cents Delaware 62 Ohio Florida but

00:37:12.760 –> 00:37:16.400
what they’re saying is gas is actually up usually gas is down this time of year

00:37:16.400 –> 00:37:20.320
people aren’t traveling right now holidays are over generally the gas

00:37:20.320 –> 00:37:24.720
doesn’t start going up again till Easter time but apparently they’re saying gas

00:37:24.720 –> 00:37:34.040
is up due to issues with the my dog again doing issues with the

00:37:34.040 –> 00:37:38.280
refineries and they’re saying that the refineries are the big problem because

00:37:38.280 –> 00:37:42.280
they’re not making enough oil to keep then they’re pushing the gas prices up

00:37:42.280 –> 00:37:46.680
that’s that’s what they’re saying that’s what triple-a is saying in this article

00:37:46.680 –> 00:37:50.840
so I thought that was interesting and I wanted to bring that up to you because I

00:37:50.840 –> 00:37:54.800
was like well that stinks I know some states don’t have the gas tax Pennsylvania

00:37:54.800 –> 00:37:57.880
does but I know like New Jersey if you go to Jersey it’s like 40 50 cents

00:37:57.880 –> 00:38:02.720
cheaper because of the gas tax and once the gas tax get and a couple of states

00:38:02.720 –> 00:38:05.960
trying to put the gas tax on I could tell you this folks once the gas tax

00:38:05.960 –> 00:38:08.840
goes on even they say it’s only temporary it’s never gonna go away once

00:38:08.840 –> 00:38:12.080
they figure out a way to make you pay more taxes it never goes away just so

00:38:12.080 –> 00:38:17.840
you know that folks even these local amenities now have like a Pennsylvania

00:38:17.840 –> 00:38:21.260
here like the local boroughs of have right-to-work tax they call it where you

00:38:21.260 –> 00:38:24.600
have to pay to work shouldn’t they be paying us to work in those way this is

00:38:24.600 –> 00:38:29.800
right now but again once they figure out a way to add on taxes they never go away

00:38:29.800 –> 00:38:34.720
so but I thought that was interesting according to gas buddy calm the app

00:38:34.720 –> 00:38:38.440
they’re saying that gas is going to be four dollars a gallon again by March and

00:38:38.440 –> 00:38:41.520
I remember I said to you I don’t ever see it I’ve been saying in the last

00:38:41.520 –> 00:38:46.640
couple of podcasts I don’t see the gas going down anytime soon especially down

00:38:46.640 –> 00:38:49.840
to two dollars a gallon I don’t think I’ll ever go back down to three again if

00:38:49.840 –> 00:38:53.060
I’m being honest with you I think it’s gonna keep rising and and here’s the

00:38:53.060 –> 00:38:58.080
scary part is the more these energy prices keep going up okay the more it’s

00:38:58.080 –> 00:39:02.440
gonna push inflation up and now you have people that just lost their jobs and now

00:39:02.440 –> 00:39:06.920
their heating bills are gonna be more so it’s really a you know a really tough

00:39:06.920 –> 00:39:13.200
thing I mean the economy is on its way to issues I really is and and I hate to

00:39:13.200 –> 00:39:18.240
say that but I mean I just got eggs today and look at how much eggs are

00:39:18.240 –> 00:39:22.920
costing now I mean it’s it’s really ridiculous how much eggs are costing it

00:39:22.920 –> 00:39:27.440
I mean just that alone milk I mean all the knit and you know necessity

00:39:27.440 –> 00:39:31.400
especially have children or stuff like that are all going up so and that’s

00:39:31.400 –> 00:39:35.520
gonna keep pushing everything else up so it’s really it’s a scary time right now

00:39:35.520 –> 00:39:41.680
folks it’s a scary time so if you’re a survivalist or a prepper scary times but

00:39:41.680 –> 00:39:46.720
so a couple things I did a couple of the lighter note we talked about the doom

00:39:46.720 –> 00:39:51.020
and gloom of the news and unfortunately there’s no other way to say about the

00:39:51.020 –> 00:39:56.720
doom and gloom of the news but I do want to talk about a couple things rebel a

00:39:56.720 –> 00:39:59.600
couple people be strapped me on rebel social and then some other things that

00:39:59.600 –> 00:40:04.760
have people have been sending me I’ve been keeping tabs on things so we’ve

00:40:04.760 –> 00:40:07.000
been talking every week we’ve been talking about these money-saving tips

00:40:07.000 –> 00:40:11.120
right well a couple people sent me a bunch more my wife also contributed to

00:40:11.120 –> 00:40:15.160
these as well I’d like to point that out my wonderful wife gonna be married nine

00:40:15.160 –> 00:40:21.440
years this year coming up we’ve been together for 15 we were married nine so

00:40:21.440 –> 00:40:25.440
no we met longer than we’ve been together yeah 15 years we’ve been to

00:40:25.440 –> 00:40:28.680
get we’ve been married nine so but she gave me some ideas as well for the

00:40:28.680 –> 00:40:32.920
podcast usually she does not participate in any of the podcast notes but we were

00:40:32.920 –> 00:40:36.480
driving home the other night and I told her I was thinking about she was driving

00:40:36.480 –> 00:40:40.540
and I’m I was John I was looking for stuff to for the show and she had said

00:40:40.540 –> 00:40:43.120
what are you doing I said I’m done working on some stuff for the show and

00:40:43.120 –> 00:40:46.600
we were there’s like an hour ride and then we sort of talking about money

00:40:46.600 –> 00:40:49.640
saving tips she threw a couple things at me here so some of these are from her

00:40:49.640 –> 00:40:56.280
like the point some of these out so money the money saving tip number one

00:40:56.280 –> 00:41:03.040
that my wife I thought about is go to a restaurant that’s BYOB so a lot of

00:41:03.040 –> 00:41:06.600
people now we do not my wife and I don’t drink at all but I know a lot of our

00:41:06.600 –> 00:41:11.360
friends her friends especially they like to drink and instead of going to a place

00:41:11.360 –> 00:41:16.040
where you have to order a bottle of champagne or wine which is expensive if

00:41:16.040 –> 00:41:19.320
you go to a restaurant a lot of restaurants are BYOB there’s no quirk

00:41:19.320 –> 00:41:23.640
there’s no quirk fee or anything like that but if you go to a place you know

00:41:23.640 –> 00:41:29.400
buying a bottle of wine from the liquor store is much cheaper and then buying it

00:41:29.400 –> 00:41:34.160
out of the restaurant so my wife had said she recommended going to a place

00:41:34.160 –> 00:41:40.360
that was BYOB bring your own booze you know to to save money so I thought that

00:41:40.360 –> 00:41:42.880
was a good tip so see if you are somebody likes a little wine at dinner

00:41:42.880 –> 00:41:46.000
something wrong with that but if you are somebody likes a little wine with it

00:41:46.000 –> 00:41:50.640
rather than ordering a glass of wine some places if they do some places do

00:41:50.640 –> 00:41:56.120
serve wine and they won’t let you be BYOB but if you are going to a place that

00:41:56.120 –> 00:41:59.600
you know a nice dinner and you want to save a few dollars go to a place that is

00:41:59.600 –> 00:42:03.360
BYOB and bring your own bottle of wine they usually don’t charge you a quirk

00:42:03.360 –> 00:42:07.000
fee or anything like that there are some places that do I want to point that out

00:42:07.000 –> 00:42:11.560
but even so if they’re charging you a few dollars for a quirk fee it’s still

00:42:11.560 –> 00:42:15.720
cheaper than maybe spending 20 you know 20 bucks on 20 you know on two glasses

00:42:15.720 –> 00:42:19.180
of wine so either way you can get a whole bottle glass of wine or a box of

00:42:19.180 –> 00:42:24.960
wine some people do box wine at Walmart so that you know rather than you know 23

00:42:24.960 –> 00:42:27.800
bottles for a whole box rather than you know you have a couple glasses rather

00:42:27.800 –> 00:42:31.760
than just one glass so my wife pointed that out so I thought that was a good

00:42:31.760 –> 00:42:35.400
money-saving tip so you go to a place that’s BYOB you can save yourself money

00:42:35.400 –> 00:42:41.200
on the alcohol by grabbing a bottle and instead of buying it there somebody said

00:42:41.200 –> 00:42:45.920
this to me in the media and a couple people of us we were kind of goofing on

00:42:45.920 –> 00:42:49.800
her she had said eat before you go out so you don’t need to order something big

00:42:49.800 –> 00:42:55.360
um my whole thing is is if I’m going out to eat I’m not gonna eat before I go out

00:42:55.360 –> 00:42:58.440
I know what she’s saying and I do agree what she’s I do understand what she’s

00:42:58.440 –> 00:43:01.880
saying if you eat home and when you go out you just order an appetizer it’s

00:43:01.880 –> 00:43:05.360
much cheaper so I get what she’s saying and maybe in a social situation that’s

00:43:05.360 –> 00:43:10.280
what you do but if I am going out to dinner I’m going out to eat but in a

00:43:10.280 –> 00:43:13.320
social situation that would be good like if you’re going out with friends maybe

00:43:13.320 –> 00:43:16.280
instead of so you don’t have to order a whole meal maybe you just order an

00:43:16.280 –> 00:43:19.120
appetizer and you could save money that way in a social situation that might

00:43:19.120 –> 00:43:23.640
work but um you were actually going out to dinner that would be kind of silly

00:43:23.640 –> 00:43:28.640
can then you be spending twice so somebody says and I thought this was a

00:43:28.640 –> 00:43:30.960
good one my wife had said if she goes someplace with the kids she’ll pack

00:43:30.960 –> 00:43:34.240
snacks or she’ll have to stop and get snacks so those of you that have kids

00:43:34.240 –> 00:43:37.480
you know make sure you bring snacks from a box of non-para you can get

00:43:37.480 –> 00:43:40.360
non-para snacks like if you get and I know maybe not the healthiest thing but

00:43:40.360 –> 00:43:46.120
you could get like like fruit loops I’m sorry you can get like cookies or fruit

00:43:46.120 –> 00:43:49.840
snacks some of that to stay in the car maybe get a box of those over the kids

00:43:49.840 –> 00:43:52.800
are hungry you just give them you know fruit snack right and I have to go out

00:43:52.800 –> 00:43:56.000
and buy it and and spend the two three dollars where there you can get the

00:43:56.000 –> 00:44:00.080
whole box for three or four dollars so that was a good saving tip I thought

00:44:00.080 –> 00:44:05.760
was good that was my wife brought that one up nothing somebody pointed out to

00:44:05.760 –> 00:44:10.160
put change in a jar I have more money saving tip rather than a money putting

00:44:10.160 –> 00:44:15.080
away tip money saving tip but they said if you go ahead and you go out you know

00:44:15.080 –> 00:44:19.120
you know and you have some change on you put the change away into a change jar

00:44:19.120 –> 00:44:22.960
and that money will build up over time that’s really more of a good saving tip

00:44:22.960 –> 00:44:28.040
rather than a good money saver but so yeah my wife had said shop at the

00:44:28.040 –> 00:44:32.360
Salvation Army I think that is actually a decent tip if and the reason I mean I

00:44:32.360 –> 00:44:35.440
know somebody like I’m not gonna wear Salvation Army clothes but if you wash

00:44:35.440 –> 00:44:38.760
somebody that stays in construction or something like that and you you’re gonna

00:44:38.760 –> 00:44:42.560
know you’re gonna beat the crap out of your jeans maybe go there and get a

00:44:42.560 –> 00:44:46.920
couple pairs of jeans maybe just to knock around in especially if you’re a

00:44:46.920 –> 00:44:50.640
homesteader and you’re gonna be doing dirty work on the homestead rather than

00:44:50.640 –> 00:44:54.160
ruining a good pair of jeans you get a pair of jeans for like a couple dollars

00:44:54.160 –> 00:44:57.200
and that’s what you’ve you ruin them you’re not ruining a 20 30 dollar pair

00:44:57.200 –> 00:45:01.560
of jeans so that might be an idea somebody had said grow your own food

00:45:01.560 –> 00:45:05.280
that’s a tough one only because sometimes that’s not always a cheap way

00:45:05.280 –> 00:45:09.560
it makes healthier but it’s not always cheaper so that one I don’t depends that

00:45:09.560 –> 00:45:13.520
that’s like a yes/no kind of thing if you’re if you’re if you have all the

00:45:13.520 –> 00:45:17.840
stuff that’s great it is gonna save you money if you have to buy everything not

00:45:17.840 –> 00:45:22.320
gonna really save you money one tip my wife did give me was join Walmart Plus

00:45:22.320 –> 00:45:25.320
and another thing I know I told you last week well you know to cut back on

00:45:25.320 –> 00:45:29.040
subscriptions but my wife had pointed this out to me is if you join Walmart

00:45:29.040 –> 00:45:35.160
Plus you get 10 cents off on gas at Exxon and places like that so not only

00:45:35.160 –> 00:45:40.440
and you’re also gonna get Paramount Plus for free so for 10 bucks a month you’re

00:45:40.440 –> 00:45:44.120
you’re not paying for Paramount Plus you’re getting $10 off on gas you’re

00:45:44.120 –> 00:45:47.880
getting free delivery from Walmart so you’re not paying any delivery charges

00:45:47.880 –> 00:45:53.160
so I think Walmart Plus actually may be a money saver because like I said you’re

00:45:53.160 –> 00:45:56.920
gonna get off on gas you’re gonna get free shipping and you’re going you know

00:45:56.920 –> 00:46:01.220
and like I said you’re going to you know save money because they have special

00:46:01.220 –> 00:46:04.480
offers and stuff like that and then like I said also to you know paying from

00:46:04.480 –> 00:46:11.120
Paramount so I do think money I do think Walmart Plus unlike Amazon Plus is

00:46:11.120 –> 00:46:14.920
actually a money saver because you’re not paying you’re you’re you’re actually

00:46:14.920 –> 00:46:19.040
gonna save with Paramount you’re gonna pay save with gas and you’re gonna pay

00:46:19.040 –> 00:46:23.320
on you’re gonna save on shipping so sometimes the Amazon keeps giving stuff

00:46:23.320 –> 00:46:27.260
but it’s not really saving you money except on the free shipping at the

00:46:27.260 –> 00:46:30.560
moment plus you actually do because you’re getting special deals you’re

00:46:30.560 –> 00:46:33.980
getting it which which do save you money you’re like you said you’re getting

00:46:33.980 –> 00:46:36.460
Paramount you’re getting a little gas you’re getting the free ship so there

00:46:36.460 –> 00:46:40.480
there are some I think that one may be a money-saving tip so I want to point that

00:46:40.480 –> 00:46:46.740
one out by the way some people had point had pointed out side hustles that you

00:46:46.740 –> 00:46:49.320
could some people that said to do well what would be a good side hustle I got

00:46:49.320 –> 00:46:53.960
some feedback after the show by the way folks I love all the feedback like I

00:46:53.960 –> 00:46:58.240
said if you want to reach out to me on Twitter it’s my handle KB 3yua my ham

00:46:58.240 –> 00:47:02.360
radio handle also to rebel social media I love all the feedback from the show I

00:47:02.360 –> 00:47:06.760
really do please keep it coming I really enjoyed it it helps me as well prepare

00:47:06.760 –> 00:47:09.800
for the show and kind of know what you guys want to talk about what you want me

00:47:09.800 –> 00:47:14.160
to you know say and some of that so it’s really good some people had said what

00:47:14.160 –> 00:47:17.400
what could be a good side hustle we got into a little chat about this on Twitter

00:47:17.400 –> 00:47:20.200
I think it was on I think was on Twitter I think it was on my thing on Twitter

00:47:20.200 –> 00:47:25.560
but somebody had said something you could do a sell stuff online that people

00:47:25.560 –> 00:47:30.760
said to me what could I sell online some you know yeah you could sell go through

00:47:30.760 –> 00:47:34.080
your basement go through attic go through your garage anything you find

00:47:34.080 –> 00:47:38.200
you could sell online that’s an easy way to start a business without any money

00:47:38.200 –> 00:47:41.960
layout you’re gonna sell it on eBay you go through your you know go through your

00:47:41.960 –> 00:47:45.240
attic go through your garage you know I bet you I bet you if you went through

00:47:45.240 –> 00:47:48.720
your attic your basement your garage your junk drawers and all you could find

00:47:48.720 –> 00:47:52.500
stuff that was valuable to sell maybe not quite a lot of value but you could

00:47:52.500 –> 00:47:56.680
make extra money that way so I thought that was a good tip also to somebody I

00:47:56.680 –> 00:48:00.100
said you want to you know start a good have a garage sale that’s the thing

00:48:00.100 –> 00:48:03.760
you could do and then what I would do the way I would do it personally is I

00:48:03.760 –> 00:48:09.220
would go through everything have my garage sale the first big of big you

00:48:09.220 –> 00:48:14.520
know if you can in your area I have a garage or yard sale whatever doesn’t

00:48:14.520 –> 00:48:18.560
sell then I’ll put it on eBay that’s the way I would do it so you get a bunch of

00:48:18.560 –> 00:48:21.760
money up front and then the rest of stuff you could piecemeal it out on

00:48:21.760 –> 00:48:28.160
eBay so I would do that like I said somebody had said what else could you do

00:48:28.160 –> 00:48:33.280
if you’re in the trades any kind of trade mechanic carpenter plumbing

00:48:33.280 –> 00:48:37.880
anything take side jobs that’s something you could do if you’re a teacher somebody

00:48:37.880 –> 00:48:42.720
said you could tutor I thought that was a good idea craft sales that’s one of

00:48:42.720 –> 00:48:46.320
those things you can and can’t it depends on what you’re doing somebody

00:48:46.320 –> 00:48:50.680
had said and I know myself I used to do this raise birds I used to raise up here

00:48:50.680 –> 00:48:54.360
and it depends on the area you’re in up where we are bird hunting is a big thing

00:48:54.360 –> 00:48:58.480
and people sometimes need the birds off to go on it sometimes you can’t always

00:48:58.480 –> 00:49:03.520
rely on the birds being there so I used to raise quail and sell them that was a

00:49:03.520 –> 00:49:06.480
little side business I used to have for a while I don’t do any more some of the

00:49:06.480 –> 00:49:11.080
time but I used to also – if you have chickens you could sell the eggs they’re

00:49:11.080 –> 00:49:16.000
five dollars some a dozen you could sell them for four the pea person saving a

00:49:16.000 –> 00:49:19.520
dollar and you’re making four dollars on your chickens it helps offset the cost

00:49:19.520 –> 00:49:23.600
of your chickens that’s a money saver so some really good really good ideas there

00:49:23.600 –> 00:49:27.720
from you guys it was a really great a lot of good good good stuff from you

00:49:27.720 –> 00:49:33.080
