My friend found this posted on a farming forum she is on a few days ago and forwarded it to me. >>>It's long but keep reading.
The foolishness of it all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Check this out, folks--- the lefties are now going after diesel powered farm equipment and want electric tractors and combines.
A close friend farms over 10,000 acres of corn in the mid-west. The property is spread out over 3 counties. His operation is a "partnership farm" with John Deere.
In response to the question “Tucker 2024?”:
“I’ve spent a lot of time in a lot of places. I always end up liking the people by the time I leave. I have no doubt that would be the case anywhere I go.
“I lived for 25 years in DC. Those people are all clinically insane. They neglect how the people close to them feel, and care only about whether people they’ve never met like them. I really don’t want to spend another minute there.”
IMO that’s why he’s so popular - his reaction to the insanity of his guests is the same as his audience because he isn’t at all prepared which gives him the freedom to instinctively push back/draw out what the audience would want him to.
Well, at least compared to the other talking heads. He obviously still frequently misses the logical followups, but does the best of any of them.
He referred to being the #1 cable news show as the best plane falling out of the sky. 🤣
Product of Rhode Island “high society” (he and wife went to boarding school, and they sent their kids to same boarding school)
Overall, though, it seems like he writes his monologue himself (I think JCD always tended to refute that). Judging by his lack of media consumption, he must have a booker and go in cold to interviews.
His owns words - don’t have any reason to believe he’s lying.
He has a studio in his barn. Doesn’t go into the office. Doesn’t use internet, email, social media at all. Gets news sent via text and that’s all he consumes.
Writes ~2200 word monologue each afternoon. 1:5 have to be funny (to him at least)
@DanielStone — great advice. 🥰
It was very illuminating for me when I’d hear Stefan Molyneaux push back when people would say an abusive family member of theirs was “crazy”.
He’d ask, “Did they treat you like that in public? Around people they wanted to think well of them? No?? Well, then, they weren’t crazy (with random, uncontrollable behavior), they were calculating.”
That helped me become even more dedicated to treating my family members the same way in private as I do in public.
