  • It's supercharged, and I'll get into politics after this.

  • But what is your feeling on say, the vibe of the people and let's just say in America, because you're they're feeling it.

  • What is happening here?

  • You know, maybe from an energy perspective or from a 30,000 ft perspective, you know, faced all the wisdom you have.

  • What do you really see is actually going on?

  • I think there's I've said this last night to somebody to I think people are down from being candid.

  • I'm not.

  • I would consider this to be a depressed down culture right now.

  • Overall, and the combinations are they.

  • We have been locked in our homes.

  • For the most part, we haven't had that human interaction that is light in our lives.

  • My dad's been my dad just spent eight days in the hospital.

  • I couldn't go inside to see him when he was in there, and he's in there struggling, right?

  • So there's thousands, millions of situations like that.

  • Then there's the social unrest in our country, where you know a group of people who tell us they were hurting.

  • Please hear us.

  • And then there's another group of people saying I hear you, but I don't agree with you and that there's Then there's the contention of the election.

  • There's the economic frustration that's happening in the country.

  • And then, you know, we're gonna go into politics in the second, like politics has become so central in our lives.

  • Now and now.

  • The athletes are involved in politics, so you can't escape.

  • More and more friends tell me, I just don't I won't even watch television.

  • I'm listening to more podcast.

  • I'm trying to find something on Netflix that's positive.

  • So in an honest answer, I would say the temperature I would take right now is scary low.

  • Um, people are very frustrated, very down.

  • That's not everyone, but I would say that's a large majority of people.

  • Even the people I know doing well financially.

  • They feel sort of like they're the enemy in our country now, to some extent through some of the political rhetoric that's out there.

  • So they feel pursued and and beat up a little bit, too.

  • So I mean, if I'm being honest, I don't like that it's this way.

  • But if I answered it any other way, I wouldn't being on being transparent with you.

  • I sense a really frustrated down culture like I've never seen before.

  • E.

  • I mean, you said, politics is everywhere.

  • It's almost become the new entertainment, you know?

  • I mean, we go back to when we were kids, you know, there was a debate, some articles, even 56 years ago.

  • It was definitely part of the news.

  • Now it is the only news that in the course of that, in the correlations from it on the reactions from it, it's almost like that dominates the news.

  • Brother, you're so right.

  • It's entertainment, religion and almost a sport all combined into one, and it za central part of our lives for most people.

  • And I don't think that that's necessarily a good thing.

  • I understand being socially aware, wanting to create changes that you feel that need to be made.

  • But the other thing it does is it's a great diversion from us.

  • In other words, if I could worry about Trump or Biden or this or that, I'm not really focusing on me and my life and my my ownership of where I am.

  • And that's a That's a really sad part of this.

  • Is everyone being lost?

  • Everyone's picking a team and a tribe, and this sort of that and this mask versus no masks, it's red versus blue.

  • It's dem vs Republicans.

  • It's black vs White Gay versus straight in these politicians from both parties, it seems to me, specialize in create, um, victim cultures of some type.

  • If you're a successful white entrepreneur, your enemy is brown illegal immigrants.

  • If you're a Christian, you're enemies of Muslim.

  • If you're a Democrat, your enemy is these rich white guys.

  • And it's just this vicious cycle of and the truth is, we don't really live that way.

  • Most of us live together pretty harmoniously.

  • We want when we see something wrong with one of our brothers or sisters, for there to be retribution and for it to be fixed and for there to be justice.

  • But they're telling us, and people are believing that we are separated from one another next week.

  • I have Donald Trump Jr on my show and the week after that.

  • I have a prominent liberal person coming on for the progressive side, and I already know I'm going to lose followers over that because I'm normalizing Trump and then the Trump Peas will be mad at me for having the liberal on.

  • I'm just doing it to serve and get information, but I it's so polarized that it's almost like I'm putting a gun to my own head and pulling the trigger.

  • I know it will only breed negativity for me yet I'm a glutton for punishment, so I'm doing it.

  • So I'm really I'm hopeful that somehow this culture begins to change because it's a you know, I have people very worried right about the election when the results happen that there could be dramatic civil unrest, a dramatic and there's some people that think it could be bloody, and I'm hoping that that's not the case.

  • I pray that that's not the case, right, with people contesting the votes and then on that does civil unrest and then it spills out.

  • Yeah, that's happening civil unrest.

  • We're already having, uh, there's peaceful protests in our country.

  • But then there's real riots happening that's under reported by the media.

  • Property destruction, people dying.

  • I mean, it's actually happening in the United States right now.

  • I know what's happening around the world to.

  • And then there's the peaceful protests.

  • I feel the peaceful protest, their messages being lost by these rioters and these poor entrepreneurs that have spent years and years building businesses.

  • To have them burned to the ground is it's just horrible.

  • It's horrible.

  • Why, why my wife stop my wife?
