Mr Bearded Truth 20 – Better Nate Than Lever

Mr. 'Murica: The Bearded Truth


About This Episode


Jason discusses the Convention of States (after promising for three videos now, sorry!). We also cover the Virginia Beach shooting as well as the process to obtain firearms and suppressors. Trump tariffs are back in the news, let’s break them down into simple terms, tariffs are taxes, taxes are bad therefore tariffs are bad. You don’t have to worry about red light cameras in Texas (some cities exempt) starting in September, a bill signed by the Gov. is making sure of it!

FULL TRANSCRIPT TEXT

02:34
welcome in everyone how is everyone
02:36
doing I hope everyone is doing well it
02:39
is Monday night Monday night which means
02:42
we’ve been we’ve had to endure the long
02:45
weekend but we are here and we’re ready
02:48
to talk about what’s been going on in
02:49
the news what’s been going on in the
02:51
world and uh and and obviously our
02:53
discussion for Friday night I promised
02:55
you guys a discussion about convention
02:57
estates and I failed to provide that for
02:59
you guys so today today we will have
03:02
that conversation we’ll front-loaded
03:04
actually we’re gonna front-load that
03:05
conversation to make sure that you guys
03:06
get that one because I think it’s it’s
03:08
very important it’s one of those
03:09
discussions that whether you’re on the
03:11
left the right
03:13
libertarian wherever you are I think
03:15
that everyone has their different point
03:18
of view on this and I think that
03:19
certainly is its with the recent events
03:22
here in South Carolina where that’s been
03:24
passed at our GOP state convention which
03:28
if you guys are not familiar South
03:29
Carolina is ran by the Democrats with
03:31
the artist next to their names the big
03:33
guys the big government fellows those
03:36
advocating for more taxes and whatnot so
03:38
they passed that through the GOP
03:40
convention the party and expected to see
03:45
that coming up for for the actual for
03:50
the actual members there in Congress to
03:54
discuss about getting involved with the
03:56
article five convention of the states so
03:59
everybody always wonders what’s our to
04:01
you on Jason how do you feel about the
04:05
idea of the convention of states and I
04:09
am NOT somebody that believes that if
04:12
article 6 cannot be followed that
04:13
article 5 will somehow make article 6 be
04:16
followed a bit a bunch of the big
04:18
stances that are being taken by the
04:20
convention the states those who are
04:22
advocating for it there’s really two big
04:25
ones and a third one that’s really not a
04:26
not a big issue not a big topic that I
04:29
think is going to really get ground it’s
04:31
kind of a vague stance but the first –
04:35
the first one is term limits for
04:37
Congress we’ve seen this be pushed
04:38
through a couple of states and that’s
04:40
been
04:43
to say that the results of benefit of
04:45
that state would I believe would be
04:47
dishonest we’ve seen this in Colorado as
04:49
well as a Michigan we’re pushing term
04:52
limits what that has done is that is
04:54
made its where you have a much younger
04:55
crowd of people there in Congress
04:58
pushing laws pushing legislation and
05:00
running through without having
05:02
experience there it’s been a little bit
05:04
more chaotic a little bit less a little
05:09
bit less trustworthy in the way that
05:12
legislation is being pushed through it
05:13
also means that you’re not your ID for
05:19
kissies your your bureaucrats are gonna
05:21
have a little more influence they’re
05:22
gonna be able to guide these Congress
05:24
people through and certainly me as a
05:26
small limited government person the
05:29
smaller the better the more limited the
05:31
better I don’t think that giving people
05:34
who are unelected more power through
05:37
through the guise of limiting the
05:40
government through term limits
05:41
necessarily will be providing that also
05:44
I want to make sure that it’s clear that
05:45
and you guys are more than welcome to
05:48
dispute this but the idea of term limits
05:51
is actually is just limiting the voter
05:53
themselves this is limiting you the
05:55
individual you the Constituent because
05:57
when you look at this let’s say find
06:00
your idol find that one member of
06:03
Congress that you enjoy that you like
06:05
that stands on the most platforms that
06:08
you agree with and that you support now
06:12
understand how many other members of
06:15
Congress have come and gone that you do
06:18
not agree with you would realize that
06:20
you are in the vast vast vast minority
06:22
of members of Congress so you’re willing
06:26
to sacrifice your good guy in hopes that
06:29
more of your good guys are come along
06:31
later and I don’t think that necessarily
06:33
that that is a very logical or well
06:36
thought out idea so you’re gonna be
06:38
hurting yourself you’re gonna be
06:39
limiting your vote on who you can vote
06:41
for will have the same limitations that
06:42
we do for for the presidency and so I I
06:45
don’t think that the term limits
06:47
necessarily will be a good thing
06:49
now the second stance is taken for
06:51
convention of states the second stay
06:53
stands is a balanced budget now balance
06:56
just sounds great right you have your
06:58
revenue and you have your spending and
06:59
they have to be pretty close if not you
07:01
have you have your revenue a little bit
07:03
higher than your spending now if we just
07:04
say look you have to have a balanced
07:06
budget what does that mean does that
07:08
mean that we have to cut the spending
07:09
down to revenue does that mean that we
07:11
have to increase the revenue to the
07:13
spending doesn’t mean we’ll probably
07:14
find a middle ground in the middle of
07:16
course it’s it’s probably the latter if
07:19
not just grow the revenue outright
07:22
expecting that we’re gonna somehow
07:24
implement new amendments to the
07:26
Constitution that it will somehow just
07:30
draw back the government and not
07:31
actually enable it to grow further I
07:33
think that that’s where we get into the
07:34
wishful thinking we get into the hopes
07:36
and dreams of things and not necessarily
07:39
getting to where what trend has been set
07:43
by government in the past and that is
07:45
that it grows and it grows and grows and
07:47
it never does shrink and if it does
07:49
shrink it it’s by a fraction of what is
07:52
what was grown you’ll see this from
07:55
actually from good auctioneers if you go
07:58
down to to any auctioneering place they
08:00
put a high bid out there and then they
08:03
bring it down lower and then it comes
08:04
back up right you never you never get
08:06
back down to that zero and in certainly
08:08
right auctioneers never want to give it
08:10
to zero they want to make money in the
08:12
same way that the government does it
08:13
wants to gain power wants a continued
08:15
growing power because if you don’t if
08:17
the government doesn’t have that power
08:19
if it doesn’t have that control over the
08:21
markets over healthcare over your
08:23
personal lives over your vehicles over
08:26
the economy whatever it is if it doesn’t
08:29
have that control over it it’s not a
08:31
necessary being on that and then they
08:34
themselves are less appreciated now
08:37
everyone of course wants to feel
08:38
appreciated
08:40
whether you’re a podcast host whether
08:43
you’re a TV show star or whether you’re
08:46
just the average Joe working in your
08:48
business you it feels good to be
08:50
appreciated if it’s for the work that
08:52
you’ve been doing and so certainly it’s
08:55
well understood as to why government
08:57
wants to be within that so when we talk
09:00
about the second point of the convention
09:03
of states and that is to to balance the
09:06
budget it’s not specific it’s not
09:09
controlling
09:10
not limiting it it’s just allowing the
09:12
government to or it’s just forcing the
09:13
government to balance these budgets and
09:16
really at the end of the day what we
09:18
could see is Bernie Sanders comes in
09:20
Bernie Sanders comes along gets elected
09:22
president United States and he whips
09:24
Congress in the shape and Congress is
09:26
now all right we gotta get a balanced
09:29
revenue in here we gotta get balanced
09:31
budget in here and so what we do is
09:35
we’ll have to top marginal rates
09:37
eighty-three percent and then that’s not
09:40
enough and so he goes further down the
09:42
line now the middle class is being taxed
09:44
at 80 percent in order to make sure that
09:46
the revenue stays neutral and spending
09:49
remain somewhat neutral that doesn’t
09:54
sound like that amendment really is
09:55
gonna be getting the end results that we
09:57
want to so both of those really I can
10:01
understand the intent for them I don’t
10:03
agree with the implementation for them
10:04
in sorry I’m certainly not one that that
10:08
agrees with the convention of states
10:09
idea it was in I think objectively
10:13
looking at the way South Carolina did it
10:15
through the GOP party platform I think
10:18
it was really rammed down there was a it
10:20
was a vocal voice it was a vocal count
10:23
not a vocal count but it was just a
10:25
vocal boat there was no counting
10:27
involved and so it was really pushed
10:29
through there’s a lot of people set up
10:31
on both sides that wanted to discuss the
10:32
matter both for and against they both
10:35
were silenced by the by the chairman
10:37
there at the state and and and I think
10:40
that that really does give credence to
10:43
the idea that the convention of states
10:45
can kind of do as they want to do if
10:48
they can implement it on how they want
10:51
to then at the same time then the way
10:53
that they’re gonna be pushing the
10:55
legislation would be along the same
10:57
lines as well as another big point with
11:00
this of the runaway convention idea is
11:02
that who appoints the delegates or
11:06
talking at the convention of states well
11:08
it would be none other than your Senate
11:10
leader of your state so ours is Hugh
11:14
Leatherman Hugh Leatherman has been
11:15
known to be a corrupt individual he’s a
11:17
guy that likes to to fill up his pockets
11:19
he likes to to redistribute the wealth
11:22
of the state back into his
11:23
County of Florence County South Carolina
11:25
he likes to do a lot of things that are
11:28
quite unethical and an unbecoming of the
11:32
position of which he resides in and so
11:36
with all of that understanding why would
11:39
I want to give him more power to be able
11:42
to push for changes on the National
11:47
Constitution III just every time I look
11:51
at this convention of states and and
11:53
certainly there’s plenty of limited
11:54
government people out there that believe
11:55
in it
11:56
I just I look at it and I think it’s a
11:58
good intention it’s a good premise it’s
12:01
a good idea but the but the but the
12:03
truth of it all the path that you take
12:05
is not going to be to a betterment of
12:07
America and it’s certainly not going to
12:09
a betterment of the Constitution and so
12:11
I hope I’ve given you guys a wide enough
12:15
picture on this I hope that I’ve given
12:17
you guys a decent enough discussion on
12:21

guys all once again for being here we do
15:13
have quite a few topics that I want to
15:15
get through tonight the first one is one
15:18
that hits really home for me as I lose
15:21
my headphones one that really hits home
15:24
for me and that is this Virginia Beach
15:28
shooting now you guys may think oh he’s
15:31
not from Virginia and I agree I’m not
15:33
from Virginia I’m not from Virginia
15:34
Beach I’m I spent only hours in Virginia
15:37
and that’s just a drive through this
15:39
place I’m not a huge fan of Virginia but
15:43
we will get to why this hits home for me
15:46
here in a little bit so if you guys had
15:48
missed in the news on Friday night
15:56
on Friday night on in Virginia Beach at
15:59
one of the municipal buildings the
16:02
Virginia Beach Municipal Center there
16:05
was a gunman who went through all three
16:08
floors of this building and managed to
16:11
shoot 12 people of course every time
16:15
that there’s a killing of course every
16:17
killing that is done not in self-defense
16:20
defense of oneself or once you know
16:24
without having that threat of course
16:26
these are our destructive disgusting and
16:29
need to be denounced wholeheartedly he
16:33
went through and was shooting with a 45
16:36
caliber handgun
16:39
so you ar-15 gun grabbers I’m sorry you
16:42
got to sit this one out you don’t get to
16:44
talk on this one the individual the
16:47
shooter who shall not be named of course
16:50
the shooter was not a white person so
16:53
therefore you know the left you have to
16:55
sit this one out as well
16:56
so gun grabbers the left synonymous in
16:59
many cases sit this one out this one’s
17:01
not for you
17:04
he came through and he shot up the place
17:06
after providing his two-week notice that
17:09
morning
17:09
now his two-week notice finally was
17:11
released out to the public I want to
17:13
officially put in my two weeks notice to
17:15
vacate my position as engineer 3 with
17:17
the city of Virginia Beach it has been
17:19
my pleasure to serve the city but due to
17:21
personal reasons I must relieve my
17:23
position so far this is the only
17:26
understanding of why the shooting has
17:27
gone on it is a big giant aura of
17:30
mystery sitting around this much like
17:33
what we saw with the Las Vegas shooter
17:36
now if you guys remember all the way
17:38
back to the Las Vegas shooter from last
17:40
October maybe sorry to October’s ago you
17:44
would recall that there was a specific
17:46
tweet from Hillary Clinton there was a
17:49
specific tweet from Hillary Clinton that
17:51
I spoke about because it really showed
17:55
the level of fear-mongering that is that
17:59
is sought to be used in order to
18:02
diminish the value of of gun rights her
18:06
tweet after that atrocious killing of I
18:10
believe it was fifty eight individuals
18:11
killed there at the the concert was now
18:16
imagine if he had a suppressor
18:22
imagine if he had a suppressor now this
18:25
shows that once again that the left
18:27
Hillary Clinton I’m going to attribute
18:29
her to left because she definitely is
18:32
the left has no understanding of
18:34
firearms the left has no understanding
18:36
of firearm accessories
18:40
I work with firearms and firearm
18:44
accessories so I might know a thing or
18:46
two about suppressors themselves
18:48
especially since that’s
18:51
but I work with
18:53
now when it comes to a suppressor a
18:55
suppressor does not make a weapon any
18:57
more lethal it does not enhance the gun
19:00
in any way that makes it more
19:03
destructive that makes it more damaging
19:06
that makes it more intimidating that
19:08
does anything other than quiet by a
19:11
couple by ten twenty maybe if you’ve got
19:15
a really good suppressor 30 decibels now
19:18
that’s not a lot of noise when you look
19:20
at the fact that a firearm a naked
19:23
firearm can you know can range from
19:25
anywhere from like a twenty-two where I
19:27
believe it’s about a hundred and twenty
19:29
decibels to 130 decibels so it will
19:31
cause permanent hearing damage if you
19:33
fired enough next to your ear all the
19:37
way up to you know one of the heavier
19:38
calibers where you’re pushing 150 160
19:41
170 decibels
19:45
reduce that by 20 to 30 decibels you’re
19:49
still with the exception of the 22 still
19:54
within the need for hearing protection
19:57
but it will as what we’ve seen from from
20:00
attempts from some Republicans and the
20:03
attempts from gun advocates and for
20:06
those who work with suppressors to
20:08
understand that suppressors are there
20:10
for hearing protection which is why we
20:12
have seen many many bills coming out in
20:17
an attempt to push for hearing
20:20
conservation acts to make it easier for
20:24
one to obtain a suppressor now I want
20:29
you guys to think about maybe you guys
20:31
aren’t informed on this and so I want to
20:33
provide this with you guys
20:34
the way that you obtain a firearm here
20:37
in the United States you can go and you
20:39
can collect them through private sales
20:41
and private sales of course if it’s
20:43
private a private and it’s not like a
20:44
normal business then it’s not illegal in
20:46
order to sell so you can just sell
20:48
pretty well out right
20:51
not a very smart decision just to sell
20:54
guns in that way but you are more than
20:56
free to do so the the Second Amendment
20:58
in the Fourth Amendment really protect
21:00
that but if you go and you buy it from a
21:03
dealer you go in you fill out some
21:06
paperwork you you basically give them
21:09
permission to do a background screening
21:11
on you to look into your history a
21:13
little bit to understand who you are to
21:15
see if you’ve got a criminal record to
21:17
see what you’ve been involved with if
21:18
you’re gonna be a trustworthy person
21:20
with a firearm and then within the next
21:22
say three days you’re able to go and
21:24
pick up your firearm when it comes to
21:27
suppressors
21:30
when it comes to suppressors the thing
21:32
that doesn’t make it any more lethal the
21:34
thing that doesn’t make it any more
21:35
scary
21:38
you go in and you say alright shop I
21:41
would like to purchase this suppressor I
21:44
would like to purchase this suppressor
21:46
to place it on my 22 caliber handgun a
21:51
very small caliber and gun that is very
21:57
quiet to begin with but I would like to
21:59
make it a little more quiet maybe maybe
22:00
to train my kids how to shoot maybe to
22:02
just have fun whatever it is maybe just
22:05
shoot some vermin out in the yard
22:06
whatever it is your prerogative so you
22:09
go ahead and you spend the couple
22:11
hundred dollars
22:13
um you go ahead and you spend a couple
22:15
hundred dollars and you buy that
22:16
suppressor because the suppressors are
22:18
not cheap by any means
22:19
despite the ease of which you can
22:22
replicate them despite the ease of which
22:24
you can manufacture one they’re not very
22:26
cheap so you buy one do you get a walk
22:29
home with her that day no no not at all
22:31
you first because the NFA National
22:34
Firearms Act has prevented them from
22:37
being sold with ease you have to give
22:41
them $200 hey government here’s $200 I
22:44
would like to purchase this can I have
22:46
this can I have it
22:47
well no no hold on we need your
22:49
fingerprints all right so now you have
22:51
to give your fingerprints you didn’t
22:52
have to give your favorite prints when
22:53
you bought a firearm but you have to do
22:54
when you go when you go to the
22:56
suppressor all right now we got that now
22:58
we need your permission to do a
22:59
background check now we’re gonna go into
23:01
your background hmm so they start
23:03
digging through your background like all
23:04
right sweet it’s gonna be over soon I’m
23:06
gonna be able to get my fire or my
23:07
suppressor here in a minute and then go
23:10
all right you’re going to wait eight to
23:11
twelve months
23:15
so I got a firearm
23:19
just picked up audit three days ago but
23:21
in order to make this firearm quiet a
23:23
little more quiet I have to wait eight
23:26
to twelve months Oh
23:29
after giving the crown two hundred
23:31
dollars for permission preserve my
23:34
hearing
23:37
now going back to this event the shooter
23:44
was using a 45 caliber handgun and had a
23:48
fixed onto it a suppressor
23:51
the media has gone insane of course cuz
23:55
the media doesn’t care about the truth
23:57
behind what these things are they don’t
23:59
care about how it works
24:01
sure there’s people that didn’t
24:02
understand what the sound was uh you can
24:05
have gunshots and people go oh what is
24:07
that you know what’s banging what’s
24:08
going on
24:09
it’s it’s never it’s never something
24:14
that’s clear for people unless you’ve
24:15
been around in that environment so with
24:18
this event he had a suppressor I was
24:20
going on he had a suppressor he was
24:23
firing around there was one person I
24:25
thought it was a nail gun
24:26
regardless killed 12 people and the
24:29
media has gone insane about this and
24:31
they had actually asked President Trump
24:34
the suspect in Virginia Beach shooting
24:37
used the silencer on his weapon do you
24:39
believe that silencer should be
24:41
restricted if you believe that President
24:45
Trump took the stance that he took when
24:50
he was on the campaign trail and he
24:52
promised us you guys need a strong
24:55
defender of the Second Amendment you
24:56
guys need someone that’s gonna come in
24:58
and fight to restore your Second
25:00
Amendment rights
25:01
that’s gonna fight to restore your
25:03
ability to protect yourself to defend
25:05
your life your Liberty your pursuit of
25:08
happiness
25:11
I’m gonna be that person for you if you
25:14
believe that you took that stance or do
25:15
you believe that he took the bump stock
25:17
stance John feel free to ask your
25:19
question well he took the bump stock man
25:23
stands he says I don’t like them at all
25:27
now this is where he is actually gone
25:29
contrary to what his son is taken his
25:32
son Donald Trump jr. Donald Trump jr. is
25:37
one of those advocates for the hearing
25:39
Protection Act
25:41
he has been a supporter of this Don
25:44
Junior Second Amendment supporter
25:47
president Trump single-handedly passed
25:50
more gun control than his gun control
25:54
advocate predecessor President Obama
25:57
President Obama has opened up through
26:00
Congress utilizing Congress has opened
26:03
up two different bills in order to open
26:06
up gun regulations to enable you to be
26:09
able to carry in national parks and to
26:13
be able to carry
26:16
or to be able to have your weapons on
26:18
you in your luggage when you take a
26:21
train
26:23
president Trump has made ten-year felons
26:26
for somebody owning a firearm accessory
26:28
called a bump stock now a foam bump
26:31
stock can be simulated by utilizing just
26:33
your finger and your belt loop but
26:36
nonetheless if you have that piece of
26:37
plastic you have that piece of rubber
26:38
you have whatever it is that you need in
26:40
order to achieve the bump stock status
26:42
and you are found out you are a ten-year
26:44
felon and now
26:48
pardon me it doesn’t look like president
26:50
Trump is in favor of the silencers
26:52
either either or with the suppressors so
26:57
what a sensories does President Trump
26:59
like and we asked him how he feels about
27:01
I don’t know magazines and we asked him
27:04
how he feels about scopes where is it
27:08
my question is okay let me let me go to
27:11
John’s question real quick John’s
27:12
question is okay thanks my question is
27:14
despite the Republican Democrat
27:15
differences don’t you think the number
27:17
of shootings is alarming and that we
27:19
need to do something I do I do think
27:22
that the number of shootings are
27:23
alarming I think that there is a serious
27:25
issue here within the Society of America
27:29
I think that we have we have ignored the
27:31
histories of the past we have ignored
27:34
the truths of what other countries have
27:37
undergone and that is that just because
27:40
we advocate for gun control does not
27:42
make the people safer now the the
27:44
aspirations the desires or controlling
27:48
weapons controlling what kind of weapons
27:50
controlling the ways in which people
27:52
obtain their weapons this is all well
27:55
and good when it comes to legal legal
27:59
people but the problem is is that
28:00
there’s a black market whenever you
28:02
regulate whenever you control whenever
28:04
you prohibit the sale or the transfer or
28:08
the use of certain things that instantly
28:11
pops up a black market we saw this with
28:14
prohibition it would be no same for
28:16
firearms would be or be no different
28:18
with firearms there’d be no different
28:20
than with drugs we’ve seen this time and
28:23
time again so when it comes to the
28:26
number of shootings what we have to look
28:28
at is there’s a lot of really good
28:30
statistics out there to really focus on
28:32
in order to get a better understanding
28:34
of how these work
28:35
now the municipal center that was just
28:38
shot up this was in a gun-free zone
28:41
much like 98% of mass shootings they
28:46
happen in gun-free zones so it’s not a
28:48
matter of of there’s too many guns out
28:51
there it’s a matter of when you create
28:54
when you legislate slav a soft spots you
28:57
have lawless people who
28:59
multiple crimes in order to kill others
29:03
ignoring those laws and you have those
29:06
who abide by the laws those who believe
29:09
that the government has your best
29:11
intentions are hard
29:13
that are defective fenceless
29:17
and ultimately killed so
29:21
I am of the belief that an armed
29:23
populace is a defended problem populace
29:27
you thinking gun control is not
29:29
effective what are your solutions then
29:31
other thing kind of gun control is is
29:33
absolutely what it says it’s control
29:36
what it is is the controls who’s allowed
29:38
to and who’s not allowed to when you
29:41
have those level of controls the
29:43
question becomes is how do we implement
29:45
those if you say mentally unstable now
29:48
who gets to define what mentally
29:50
unstable is oftentimes they’re not going
29:52
to be addressing to to actual people
29:57
within the field and even when you
29:59
address those people in the fields they
30:00
may be overstepping their boundaries or
30:02
they may not be going far enough in the
30:04
opinions of many so that means that
30:07
there’s going to be innocent people
30:09
they’re going to be having their guns
30:10
taken away or prevented from from
30:14
getting those and so there’s a huge
30:15
issue so my
30:18
my hope is that what we can do is we can
30:23
follow along right with school shootings
30:25
are extremely hard right because it’s
30:32
innocent children being killed
30:35
look it’s schools across this country
30:38
that have placed signs in front of their
30:41
schools saying that the teachers are
30:42
armed regardless on if the teachers are
30:45
actually armed or not
30:48
there’s not been one of those schools
30:52
that has had a school shooter
30:56
when we look at the poll shooter from
30:59
the polls Club down in Florida when we
31:01
look at the way that he had gone through
31:05
that event
31:06
it was made clear that he went to
31:10
multiple bars that night prior to going
31:13
to the polls club and when he the reason
31:17
why he picked the polls club I believe
31:19
if I recall correctly it was the fourth
31:21
bar that he went to that night the
31:24
reason why I picked polls was because
31:26
that was the one that did not have armed
31:28
security
31:30
so if we have a populace that is enabled
31:35
and encouraged to be able to defend
31:37
themselves much like with Switzerland is
31:40
maybe just maybe there be a lot less
31:42
there be a lot more there be a lot less
31:47
trusting that when you break into
31:49
somebody’s house that when you shoot up
31:51
a mall a school a government building
31:56
such as this that we may be able may be
32:01
able to have those people with those bad
32:05
intentions not trust that they’re going
32:08
to be able to complete their objective
32:10
whatever it is do you think teachers
32:14
would be comfortable in carrying guns in
32:16
class what if they refused so the
32:19
purpose of this is not to force anyone
32:22
into carrying a firearm
32:24
there’s the purpose of allowing teachers
32:26
to arm themselves is for teachers and if
32:29
they if they want to put some
32:32
ridiculous standard and say you have to
32:34
go through X amount of hours of training
32:36
the X amount of this X amount of that
32:38
get these certifications yada yada yada
32:40
then that’s fine but the idea is that
32:43
you enable them to exercise their right
32:46
not to not to prohibit them and to leave
32:49
them as well as their students unarmed
32:51
you allow them the opportunity so
32:56
anyways I’ve got to continue on I do
32:59
appreciate your questions there Joan so
33:03
this the shooting when the media gets
33:07
all hyped up about the silencers and the
33:09
suppressors when Donald Trump says I
33:12
don’t like them
33:15
it’s not a good day for the Second
33:17
Amendment it’s not a good day for
33:19
hearing protection it’s not a good day
33:21
for for hunters it’s not good for
33:26
competition shooters you know these are
33:28
these are people that utilize the
33:29
suppressors quite frequently because if
33:33
you’re hunting you want to be quiet as
33:35
possible
33:35
these don’t these are not your Hollywood
33:37
suppressors they’re not shooting out of
33:41
a 50 Cal right that you still have a
33:43
large boom you still have a large amount
33:45
of gas that is being moved regardless of
33:50
whatever size it is and thank you and
33:56
and so looking to constrict this looking
34:00
to be able to straw man and take away
34:04
bit by bit this is what the gun control
34:07
crowd has always been doing it’s not
34:09
it’s not a leap forward and taking all
34:12
of your guns it’s taking your guns one
34:14
bit at a time take away this person’s
34:16
right take away that person’s right take
34:18
away this gun take away that accessory
34:20
take away this than any other and down
34:22
the slope we continue on eventually we
34:24
may look look may look a lot like
34:27
Britain or maybe even Venezuela where
34:29
our own government is trampling us with
34:31
with different vehicles it’s a it’s a
34:35
scary scary world and seeing Trump’s say
34:37
that about I don’t like them in
34:40
reference to suppressors it really does
34:43
it hurts me
34:45
it really genuinely irks me
34:49
I wish that his promises I wish that his
34:54
promise on the campaign trail actually
34:56
held some weight whatsoever
35:02
hmm speaking of waiting
35:07
I know wait with it with the e I ght and
35:11
now we’re gonna go into the wait the W a
35:13
AIT we’re gonna have to wait a little
35:18
while down in Texas Austin Texas the
35:23
governor just passed a bill banning
35:27
red-light cameras now what we’re gonna
35:28
have to wait on is that there are some
35:31
some cameras companies that are
35:34
privately owned that have contracts with
35:38
those cities and so these ones are not
35:41
gonna be able to go away but the more
35:43
important part on Saturday afternoon
35:45
Greg Abbott
35:46
governor Greg Abbott announced via
35:48
Twitter that he had signed a piece of
35:50
legislation that bans red light cameras
35:52
statewide
35:53
what’s a red-light camera you may ask if
35:55
you guys live out in the in the woods
35:57
live out in the sticks red-light camera
35:59
of course is one of those cameras that
36:01
as soon as it turns red if you are in
36:04
that intersection you’re safe but if you
36:06
go into that intersection after the time
36:08
of which it turns red they snap a
36:11
picture and they send you the feet they
36:14
send you the ticket I’ve been opposed to
36:19
anything like this like speed trap
36:22
cameras red-light cameras these things
36:26
have always been deemed to be
36:27
unconstitutional by many people who
36:30
agree with or have really embodied the
36:34
tenor of that compact because one of the
36:38
things is is that you’re supposed to be
36:39
able to face your accuser you can’t face
36:41
your accuser if your accuser doesn’t
36:43
have a face and certainly cameras
36:45
emulate that they do you could try to
36:47
personify them and say they have a face
36:49
and that’s their big one eye but simply
36:53
don’t this red-light camera thing that’s
36:56
a beautiful thing and it was it was
37:00
House House bills 1631 passed the US or
37:04
the Texas Senate 23 to 8:00 in mid-may
37:07
and he had until June 16th to sign into
37:10
law or to veto it
37:13
well he made that deadline and he passed
37:16
it in red light cameras violate the
37:18
right to due process guaranteed under
37:20
article 1 of the Constitution by
37:21
creating a presumption that the
37:22
registered owner of the car committed a
37:24
violation when in fact that might not
37:27
have been the case so that’s that’s
37:29
their justification deny I like that I
37:31
like that justification you give your
37:33
your buddy your car he’s driving down
37:36
the road he’s texting and driving
37:38
because you know he doesn’t care about
37:39
your property burns through a red light
37:42
and you get the fine for it now you
37:46
don’t trust him and now you also have
37:48
paid a fine good for them to get rid of
37:50
that these cameras
37:54
um
37:57
ka KXAN who wrote this article research
38:02
found that there was no official
38:04
engineering study for cameras and nine
38:05
intersections in Austin and the cameras
38:08
had produced 5.6 million dollars in
38:11
fines for the city in over eight years
38:13
these sound like revenue schemes don’t
38:15
they it sounds like the government is
38:17
always trying to find ways again getting
38:19
more revenue to get more money coming in
38:21
for your safety for your safety mind you
38:24
those two seatbelt tickets you pay these
38:27
funds if you don’t want to pay the fines
38:28
will throw you in jail and if you don’t
38:30
want to go to jail we might have to beat
38:31
you on the way in don’t worry it’s about
38:33
your safety
38:34
this right here it’s just that right
38:37
five point six million dollars in fines
38:39
over eight years hmm that’s over half a
38:43
million a year that’s that’s good
38:46
abundance of money it’s good to see them
38:48
getting rid of this the law banning red
38:51
lights cameras will go into effect after
38:52
September 1st but some cameras may not
38:55
be removed immediately because in an
38:57
amendment that lets cities keep them in
38:59
place until contracts with private
39:01
companies expire
39:06
that’s some exciting stuff always
39:09
exciting it’s nice to see and I always
39:14
cherish it I cherish it absolutely
39:16
cherish it whenever we see a government
39:18
getting smaller whenever it takes away
39:21
one of its revenue streams whenever it
39:23
gets out of your life and allows you to
39:27
be free here is another topic that I
39:32
wanted to cover with you guys on Friday
39:34
night and as the horrible show hosts
39:37
that I’ve been for you guys I slipped on
39:39
it I didn’t give it to you
39:43
this was the Trump tariffs now III I
39:47
know I sound like a deranged but
39:50
somebody with Trump derangement syndrome
39:52
tonight two big topics that I gotta hit
39:54
Trump for if you guys have been
39:56
following me long enough you guys know
39:57
I’m objective with with Trump I stay
39:59
when he’s right I say when he’s wrong
40:00
and on both of these stances there I’ve
40:03
seen already so much defense for tariffs
40:06
that we have to hit it once more once
40:08
again one more time again one more game
40:11
all right so Trump’s tariffs on Mexico
40:14
import would be biggest tax increase in
40:17
decades
40:18
if the tariffs ramped up all the way to
40:21
25 percent as Trump has threatened they
40:23
would be the biggest tax increase since
40:26
1968 yes the President of the United
40:29
States that passed the tax cuts and job
40:32
sacks which I loved and hoped that they
40:34
would continue down that trend of
40:36
cutting our taxes making it cheaper for
40:38
us to live giving us more of our
40:40
paychecks allowing us to spend it the
40:42
way that we want to that same president
40:46
has imposed tariffs worldwide he has
40:52
been in the tariff war with China and
40:54
there’s no signs of its stopping there’s
40:57
been a slight hiatus for a little while
40:59
there’s been a pause
41:02
but now it’s back on and it’s ramping up
41:04
and it’s continuing to go and now he’s
41:06
threatening it against Mexico now why
41:09
are we going after Mexico what is the
41:11
purpose behind going behind after Mexico
41:13
for this well if Mexico is not doing
41:15
enough on their side of the border to
41:17
prevent people from immigrating into our
41:19
country then we shall impose arives
41:24
now the first one is five percent and
41:26
then it goes up to I believe it was let
41:28
me pull it up the five percent import
41:32
tax is scheduled to take first on June
41:33
10th so in seven days would push this
41:36
cumulative cost of Trump’s trade war
41:38
ahead of the 1993 tax increase signed by
41:40
the I believe that this goes up every
41:45
five percent for every couple every
41:48
couple weeks or months up to the maximum
41:50
of 25 percent and if it gets to the 25
41:53
percent that is a permanent a permanent
41:57
25 percent totally decides to swing it
42:00
away I wanna I want to read this article
42:05
for you guys this is from reason this is
42:07
where I’ve been pulling this information
42:08
about President Donald Trump is about to
42:10
challenge Bill Clinton in Lyndon Johnson
42:15
all right let me see if I can blow this
42:18
up for you guys a little bit and swap it
42:20
on over here
42:23
president Donald Trump is about to
42:25
challenge Bill Clinton in Lyndon Johnson
42:27
for record few Republicans would want to
42:31
achieve
42:31
if Trump falls there is his plan to hit
42:34
all Mexican imports with tariffs the 5%
42:37
import tax is scheduled to take effect
42:38
on June 10th would push the cumulative
42:41
cost of the Trump’s trade war ahead of
42:44
the 1993 tax increase signed by then
42:47
President Bill Clinton hmm
42:52
the tariffs imposed by the Trump
42:54
administration would generate 69 billion
42:56
dollars in federal revenue over a full
42:59
year well then to about point three
43:02
percent of GDP
43:06
hmm so we are fighting over pennies
43:10
we’re fighting over pennies on this one
43:14
thing that is unequivocally clear and I
43:17
want to make it just as clear for you
43:18
guys
43:19
whenever you impose a tariff on a
43:21
foreign country what is that that is a
43:24
tax on you the consumer if I were to say
43:28
anyone who buys from Walmart Walmart now
43:32
has to spend an extra five percent let’s
43:35
just let’s just use numbers five dollars
43:38
every transaction Walmart does they have
43:40
to give $5 Walmart is not going to sell
43:43
you the gum for $1
43:45
Walmart is then gonna say our average
43:49
consumer does this amount and this is
43:51
the the average and so we’re gonna bump
43:53
up all the prices of all of our goods to
43:55
make it to where you pay for it now of
43:58
course when you have these tariffs the
44:01
idea and much like what we have with
44:03
China is the idea that you don’t you
44:05
don’t go to China for that you don’t go
44:07
to Walmart you go in China’s reference
44:11
that you go to America in my Walmart
44:13
reference you go to Costco he goes
44:16
somewhere else for these goods basic
44:20
economics determines that when you
44:23
reduce the supply but the demand stays
44:27
the same the price for those Goods goes
44:32
up
44:34
so Costco and American goods will go up
44:39
in turn now when those costs of goods go
44:42
up what also follows smaller businesses
44:46
go out so if you’re in favor of if
44:48
you’re a fan of small businesses and I
44:51
happen to be anti monopolies and so the
44:53
only way to be anti monopoly is to
44:55
enable more businesses to enable more
44:58
competition to enable more commerce
45:04
is to oppose these terrors to impose new
45:09
taxation on the economies on the
45:14
Commerce and so these tariffs we are
45:19
learning once again that tariffs are
45:23
attacks taxes are bad tariffs are bad
45:29
and and we can try to justify them all
45:32
that we want to the end result of every
45:36
historical tariff
45:39
doesn’t mean that you the consumer comes
45:41
out on the better end
45:44
Haase living goes up your cost to
45:46
produce goods goes up your cost to
45:48
import goods goes up your your cost just
45:51
the cost of everything goes up it’s not
45:55
to our benefit and so Trump threatening
45:59
Mexico I I I hope that at the by the end
46:04
of this you can look at any time that
46:05
somebody says we’re tariffs in this
46:07
country you look at what is what is
46:10
coming from that country in Mexico is a
46:12
big auto dealer or auto manufacturer
46:16
auto is coming in now they’ve got a
46:19
bigger tariffs now if I want to go buy a
46:20
new car it’s gonna cost more money all
46:22
about used car is going to cost more
46:24
money is there’s less cars than air me
46:27
coming across from the Mexico border so
46:29
it means that those that are being
46:30
produced here they either a have to step
46:33
their game up and with us having wars
46:35
with China over what was the term
46:39
precious metals not precious metals of
46:43
specialty metals with those also being
46:47
attacked and being reduced right we
46:50
can’t manufacture as much so there’s
46:52
there there’s this big giant hurricane
46:55
of just terrible atrocities happening to
46:57
to the to the economy and we can brag
47:00
about the economy of last year and how
47:03
it’s been booming and how it’s doing
47:04
better
47:06
now starts the downfall now I’ll start
47:08
the the when we get into the question of
47:12
bulls there’s been a couple of
47:15
economists that have been calling for a
47:18
big recession to come one that’s larger
47:21
than the 2008 housing market crash
47:26
you have that to worry about nets that’s
47:28
been speculated before Tom came into
47:30
office so you have that big worry you
47:32
have these tariff Wars which is putting
47:34
a lot of people into questioning
47:35
attitudes into wondering how the future
47:37
of the economy is going to go you have
47:41
actions of what actual politics are
47:43
going on you’ve got antitrust issues
47:45
going on you’ve got just general
47:50
overreach of the government in my
47:51
opinion but things that the government’s
47:54
been doing that have been causing
47:57
questioning attitudes of and questioning
48:01
the confidence of the consumers
48:04
we’re moving further into shaky ground
48:07
we’re not getting the stable solid
48:09
ground anymore we’re getting too thin
48:11
ice and somebody it happens to be
48:14
tapping it with a pole and it’s a pretty
48:16
heavy pole and uh you know I hope I hope
48:22
that I am I am trying wolf I hope that
48:28
I’m saying the sky is falling I hope
48:31
that I’m completely wrong on this and
48:33
I’m gonna wake up every day for the next
48:35
10 years 15 20 years 30 years and the
48:38
economy is gonna be doing better and
48:40
better each day I just I don’t see it
48:44
I really just genuinely don’t see it and
48:46
this this threat on Mexico strong-arming
48:50
them through trade punishing the
48:52
American citizens the the commerce here
48:55
in this country because Mexico fails to
48:58
uphold their end of their border really
49:01
does show that we want to we not only
49:03
want to control the people in our
49:05
country but we also want to control the
49:07
people in other countries this is
49:11
it’s worrisome
49:13
I can’t be the only one be worried about
49:15
this right I’m not the only one right
49:19
ah alright now one more big topic you

50:09
news from this evening
50:11
I haven’t had very much time I was
50:14
coming back from physical therapy I I
50:17
just need to take them take a second
50:21
physical therapy is amazing if you if
50:24
you guys have back injuries
50:26
opt in for the physical therapy is if
50:29
you’ve got a good physical therapist and
50:30
and mine certainly is the way she
50:34
manipulates my back I walk out of there
50:36
walking out on cloud cloud 9 it is
50:40
perfection and that that’s what enables
50:43
me to say here talk with you guys about
50:45
all this stuff if not I’d be I’d be
50:47
cooped up like what you guys saw spike
50:50
for a month and a half two months I’d be
50:52
in that same condition
50:55
but nonetheless I’m here so I want to
50:57
read through this with you guys House
50:59
Judiciary Committee launches a
51:02
top-to-bottom antitrust probe of big
51:05
tech now I first want to start off any
51:07
time we talked about antitrust I would
51:10
love to know why it is that the
51:14
government a monopoly gets to dictate
51:19
over other monopolies that break up
51:22
other monopolies but they themselves are
51:25
not susceptible to the laws on which
51:28
they impose I just want equality I don’t
51:31
want this animal farm anymore I don’t
51:33
want it to where everyone is equal but
51:35
some are more equal than others where
51:37
you have you have members of Congress
51:40
calling for gun control calling to
51:43
remove fully automatic weapons entirely
51:47
beyond what the NFA is
51:51
to call for those removals and then yet
51:55
the Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer
51:58
owns one yet Democrats across the board
52:02
owned firearms they carry their firearms
52:05
because they need their protection but
52:07
we the people are not susceptible to
52:09
that I’m tired of this everyone is equal
52:12
but some are more equal than others
52:14
so this antitrust probe House Judiciary
52:19
Committee said Monday is launching a
52:21
top-to-bottom antitrust investigation of
52:23
the tech industry including Amazon Apple
52:25
Facebook and Google hmm Deeping a crisis
52:29
for Silicon Valley’s largest players as
52:32
they face mounting mounting scrutiny in
52:34
Washington over their power and
52:36
influence the democratic-led
52:37
investigations comes as a Justice
52:39
Department and the Federal Trade
52:41
Commission’s are taking the first step
52:43
towards a political probe of their own
52:44
into Google according to three people
52:47
familiar with the matter regulators have
52:50
negotiated to divide oversight of the
52:52
tech industry between two agencies and
52:54
recent weeks these people said the two
52:56
agencies have also reportedly split up
52:58
oversight of Amazon Apple and Facebook
53:00
so they’re barely splitting it up to
53:02
check this all out that’s good of them
53:04
along the darling of investors and
53:07
politicians the tech industry has come
53:09
under intense pressure amid an array of
53:11
privacy missteps disinformation scandals
53:14
and allegations of anti-competitive
53:16
behavior
53:19
privacy missteps government has been
53:22
guilty of that disinformation scandals
53:24
government has been guilty of that and
53:27
allegations of anti-competitive behavior
53:30
government has been guilty of that let’s
53:32
go through let’s go into those a little
53:34
bit privacy missteps we’ve seen people
53:36
where government officials have released
53:38
unredacted information about providing
53:40
information of innocent personnel this
53:43
has happened time and time and time and
53:44
time and time to time and time again
53:47
disinformation scandals Waco Ruby Ridge
53:53
we can here’s here’s one that not many
53:56
people have heard about and I hope you
53:57
guys will do your research on it
53:59
killdozer there’s there’s there’s so
54:02
many of these these incidents where
54:04
people are doing things and it really
54:06
does become a scandal on the side of the
54:08
government and they just they willfully
54:10
get away from it when it comes to other
54:12
scandals let’s look at what happened
54:14
during the Obama administration we can
54:16
talk about fast and furious
54:20
we can talk about there’s been scandals
54:23
in every single presidential turn
54:28
huh not held liable for that one
54:33
allegations of anti-competitive behavior
54:39
there are many states in which if you
54:43
would like to provide for the needy you
54:46
would like to go to a public place and
54:48
provide food to the poor food to the
54:52
homeless food to people just out of the
54:55
goodness of your heart because you have
54:57
a surplus of food they have a desire for
55:00
food and you would like to give that to
55:01
them
55:02
just donate that to them the government
55:05
says no no no no no no no no you can’t
55:08
give to them and they send their police
55:11
thugs after you
55:13
I was like competition
55:18
we we can go on with the the
55:21
anti-competitive stuff I I’m gonna have
55:23
to digress just to be able to continue
55:24
on industry critics such as
55:26
Massachusetts Democratic senator
55:28
Elizabeth Warren a presidential
55:30
candidate got to make sure you guys
55:31
remember senator Foca Honus presidential
55:34
candidate have called for tough new
55:36
regulations and demanded that the
55:38
companies be broken up tough new
55:41
regulations they want to show us a
55:44
comfort freedom speech that’s that’s the
55:46
basis the industry probe will be
55:49
wide-ranging Rhode Island Democratic
55:50
Representative David Cicilline who heads
55:54
the panel Subcommittee on antitrust and
55:56
is leading the investigation set is
55:58
aimed less at specific companies than
56:00
the tremendous concentration of market
56:02
power held by Silicon Valley’s most
56:04
dominant platforms
56:09
what’s interesting if we look at the way
56:11
that these are all broken down Amazon
56:13
Apple Facebook and Google now Google is
56:16
an infrastructure Google is something
56:18
that is is more than just your web
56:21
browser there are many different ways to
56:24
get involved with Google whether it’s
56:26
your email whether it’s a search engine
56:28
whether it’s a database whether it’s a
56:31
platform people to exchange information
56:34
on whatever it is you have Apple Apple
56:38
is very similar they we all know who
56:40
Apple is Amazon they’re just a giant
56:43
seller they they they provide a really
56:47
good product at a really low price at an
56:51
extremely fast return you know there’s
56:56
there’s oftentimes jokes that you know
56:58
you’ll go out drinking one night while
57:01
you’re drunk you open your phone you
57:03
flip through Amazon you say yep yep yep
57:06
yep you know you buy a bunch of stuff
57:08
you wake up the next day you’re hungover
57:10
and you hear the door knock at noon and
57:13
you’re like oh man it’s already here you
57:15
go out there and you find out you bought
57:16
just the most root random ridiculous
57:19
stuff
57:20
that’s the slight exaggeration it takes
57:22
usually a day after that but nonetheless
57:26
extremely cheap you’re not gonna be mad
57:28
at yourself you’re drunk so very quick
57:31
and it’s a low price or it’s a low price
57:35
and it’s a it’s decent quality stuff
57:37
right you can pick your own quality on
57:39
that and then Facebook Facebook relies
57:42
on Google and Apple
57:44
so they’ve got this tearing right they
57:46
these are four separate entities that
57:49
have got quote unquote the monopoly on
57:51
this and they’ve been able to prevent
57:55
others from getting involved Facebook
57:56
does own Instagram and it owns a another
57:59
couple of social media platforms they
58:02
have kind of an over encompassing
58:05
control over this and so I understand
58:08
the desire to to limit this now one way
58:13
that this we can overturn this one way
58:16
that we can destroy this is by actually
58:18
getting people that are involved with
58:20
freedom that actually value freedom now
58:25
whether that’s freedom of speech freedom
58:27
of association freedom of whatever to be
58:30
able to create an infrastructure like
58:32
Google to enable us to be able to have
58:36
social media platforms like Facebook
58:38
where you can have the all-encompassing
58:43
household goods such as your ipad your
58:47
iphones your your imax your whatever it
58:50
is like apple and be able to sell like
58:53
on amazon that’s the only way that we
58:55
can do this and that that’s by the free
58:57
market when you take the government they
58:58
come in and they start disrupting things
59:01
it doesn’t end well it doesn’t always
59:03
bode well we’ve seen this time and time
59:05
again but
59:10
where are we key areas for the
59:12
investigation include the tech
59:13
industry’s impact on local journalism
59:16
consumer privacy and the ability for new
59:18
startups to enter the marketplace
59:21
new startups they have to align with the
59:24
terms and conditions otherwise Google or
59:26
Apple should never be forced to have
59:29
them on their on their platform one big
59:33
idea that comes to mind was gab Don AI
59:35
if you guys ever heard of gap gap was a
59:39
free speech platform they basically said
59:41
as long as you’re not docking each other
59:43
or making making threats of of each
59:46
other do what you want to do and both
59:50
Google and Apple both prevented it from
59:52
being on their stores they prevented it
59:55
from being easily transmitted through
59:58
their platforms I agree with them owning
60:01
their platforms and be able to prevent
60:02
that but when you when you talk about
60:05
the ability for new startups to enter
60:08
the marketplace I hope that this doesn’t
60:11
turn into that bake that cake once again
60:13
where oh you’ve got a platform you have
60:16
to accept these people I don’t want that
60:18
I want to have an actual free market I
60:21
want to actually see where people who
60:23
value the opinions the views and the
60:27
stances of anyone and everyone to be
60:29
able to be free to associate and to
60:32
speak to enjoy the platforms of others
60:34
that’s what I would like to see and
60:36
maybe maybe one day I’ve got to go pick
60:38
up my own shovel and I got to start
60:39
doing the work myself
60:40
maybe I gotta go to school for that who
60:42
knows but that that’s the way it should
60:43
be going consumer privacy here’s here’s
60:49
the thing that people don’t like to hear
60:51
when it comes to
60:54
your consumer privacy how many people
60:58
take the time to read the terms and
60:59
conditions
61:01
how many people just see it scroll to
61:03
the bottom click I accept and move on
61:05
with our day
61:07
yeah I know all of us are in that last
61:09
category I’m right there with you
61:12
if you’re worried about your privacy
61:17
should be using the platform’s of our
61:19
radium it’s not up to the government to
61:21
tell you to be to protect you from these
61:25
businesses it’s up to you to be
61:27
principled enough to not need someone to
61:30
guide you through this stuff or for you
61:32
to go alright this has the potential to
61:37
have a large enough impact on my life
61:39
that I’m going to sit down and I’m gonna
61:41
go through all of this boring legal
61:44
speak I’m gonna have Google open on one
61:46
page and I’m gonna read the Terms and
61:47
Conditions of Google on the other page
61:49
and I’m gonna just type it in there and
61:51
I’m gonna work through this stuff you
61:53
really care about your privacy you need
61:55
to look into the stuff local journalism
61:58
how is that being affected well of
61:59
course we know how Google algorithms
62:01
work we know how Facebook censor speech
62:03
and
62:05
basically has become a publisher
62:09
despite the what was that online decency
62:14
act I think it was
62:17
where they basically have a protection
62:18
from being a publisher that’s something
62:21
that a lot of people need to start
62:22
looking into is that that online decency
62:25
act so yes they have a lot of control in
62:31
this stuff this isn’t grounds for more
62:33
government it’s not going to be the
62:35
betterment for us it’s gonna actually be
62:37
contrary to what we expect and what we
62:40
hope I don’t I don’t see this I see this
62:44
is the another one of those good
62:46
intentions but the outcome will never be
62:48
what we actually want it to be
62:50
bring back slingshots I’m down but it’s
62:56
I don’t know I’ve never been a fan of
63:01
the antitrust act in the ways that these
63:04
things have been working because the
63:06
intention is always good the intentions
63:08
with anything that anyone ever advocates
63:10
for the government for the intentions
63:12
always good I’m never gonna doubt your
63:14
intentions right when you say look I
63:15
want gun control I understand that your
63:17
intention is that you want to reduce gun
63:20
violence you want to reduce people being
63:21
killed being harmed beam being suicided
63:25
by their own firearms I understand that
63:27
your intent but the problem is that we
63:29
would look at the logic all the way
63:31
through we will see that that’s not the
63:34
end result we don’t see lives being
63:36
bettered by even outright banning
63:39
firearm so like what they have in the UK
63:41
but you actually saw higher increases of
63:43
sexual assault of rape of violence of
63:46
stabbings of bleaching of other forms of
63:49
atrocities and it doesn’t end with the
63:53
the results that you want to
63:56
this antitrust movement this
63:58
investigation I I think it’s gonna be
64:02
the same thing as always and maybe I’m
64:04
just the biggest pessimist maybe I am
64:06
and that’s that’s fine I could be a huge
64:10
pessimist because I don’t trust the
64:12
government because the government has
64:13
never helped anybody genuinely has never
64:16
helped anyone you know who it’s helped
64:17
it’s helped members of Congress become
64:19
wealthy it gave them a means they they
64:22
ceded the powers to themselves and then
64:26
sold that to the bureaucrats for a
64:27
paycheck
64:29
they’ve gained the power over the years
64:32
after administration administration
64:35
they’ve taken that power they’ve ignored
64:38
the shackles of the Constitution
64:42
and they’ve utilized that for their own
64:44
personal gain if you don’t believe me
64:46
look at how many members of Congress are
64:48
millionaires
64:50
ask them how many of them will release
64:52
their tax returns I don’t want them to I
64:54
I don’t want to compel them to but they
64:57
wouldn’t
65:01
and if they would they hide a lot of
65:04
their stuff anyways but that’s neither
65:07
here nor there
65:11
but with that guys
65:14
