  • That’s a great picture for the migration crisis. Speaking Antarctica and weird geography, did you know there’s a place in Panama where you can start at the Atlantic Ocean and walk a straight line east to the Pacific Ocean? I didn’t believe it myself until I looked at a map. Panama forms that Yin and Yang shape that twists the oceans around.

  • I love to listen to you guys talk! I haven’t heard anything that I disagree with as of yet. This is a great discussion that I wish everyone could hear, we are living in a crazy world. Keep it up guys!! Thank you both!

    • Thank you so much for listening Anita! David and I very much appreciate it! We will most likely do this on a weekly basis so please check back often. Thanks for the comment!

    • Thank you for the support Anita! Doug and I pick a topic for every week and sometimes its a little difficult because so many of these topics bleed into each other. And yes, it is a crazy world. Sometimes it seems like the US government is rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.

  • Another outstanding pod cast.

    The homeless population here in LA is growing but LA and Orange counties are spread out over a large area so it’s not like you see them everywhere but if you look you can find as many as you want. Some estimates for LA’s Skid Row are going as high as 11,000 homeless. “Last year’s count found 52,765 homeless people in Los Angeles County” and that’s not including Orange county.” Many are living in the bushes along freeways, under bridges and along dangerous dry river beds.

    The Union Rescue Mission in Skid Row sums it up this way: “Many people who come to America view it as a place where they can start over with nothing–and frequently end up here with little to no resources.”

    Doug you mentioned Woodrow Wilson, you probably heard this but before Wilson was president of the US he was president of Princeton University when he made this statement:

    “We want one class of persons to have a liberal education, and we want another class of persons, a very much larger class of necessity in every society, to forgo the privilege of a liberal education and fit themselves to perform specific, difficult, manual tasks.”

    Note Wilson’s use of the word privilege.

    Now that robotics will be performing most of the specific, difficult, manual tasks, and computer algorithms will be doing our thinking for us, the very much larger class of unprivileged will be left to rot in skid rows all over our country. The middle class will be forced to pay for it (Shared Responsibility) until they themselves become members of skid row.

    Maybe the elite’s ultimate goal is to reinstate a 1909 eugenics law that was passed in California that allowed for state institutions to sterilize those deemed “unfit” or “feeble-minded”. Who knows maybe that’s where Hitler got his Ideas.

    • Thank you Cal! I spent some time in Mar Vista, near Venice Beach, in 1987. To see films of that area now is very sad. We are staring the collapse of our country in the face and so many simply choose not to acknowledge it. Wilson was a puppet on the strings of Edward Mandell House, and at the end of his life, Wilson said: “I have unwittingly ruined my country.”

      This country has been gutted. Cities that once thrived with industry and manufacturing look like the worst third world countries, i.e. Baltimore, Detroit, and on it goes. 42 people were shot in Chicago over memorial Day weekend. More and more, America is looking like ancient Rome, just before it collapsed. As always, thank you for your comments and for listening! All the best!

      • Thank you for the comments, Cal. The numbers seem overwhelming and your observation about how the homelessness issue will be exacerbated by the advent of AI is a good illustration of the way these topics can bleed together and over lap. Doug and I pick a topic for every week and we often end up discussing how seemingly unrelated problems our society is facing influence each other. And that’s a good question about where Hitler got his ideas. A lot of people seem to think that Hitler and the spread of the Nazism across Europe was an isolated incident. But the goals of Hitler and people like him (Stalin, Mao, Kim Il Sung) are always about power over large populations. I am continually baffled by people who think that the solution to every problem is more government. The same people who call everyone they disagree with are often socialists themselves. The term nazi means “national socialist.”

  • Sorry. In the next to last last sentence I meant to say, “The same people who call everyone they disagree with NAZIS are often socialists themselves.

  • Wow guys great chat where will we be in 10 years from now crazzzzy times ahead popcorn and pepsi at the ready peace

    • As always, thank you Paul! We’ve got another one coming today dealing with the [mis]education system and its foundations. See you soon brother!
