Dana Lashes of Sir Truth Podcast sponsored by Kel-Tec. It's his life mission to make bad decisions.

It's time for Florida Man. So have you heard of these stories? And these are some of my favorite stories where you have like dogs that warn people of, you know, fires or, you know, these pets that that help their owners avoid disaster. Usually dogs, right? Every now and then there's a cat. I think we all saw the video of the cat like trying to keep the kid from going down the stairs. What about a turtle?

No, that's an actual true story. So let me tell you about the Florida tortoise. A tortoise helped a local family escape floodwaters during Hurricane Adelia, Shore Acres, Florida.

When the hurricane hit Florida at the end of August, the storm caused major flooding and destruction. And according to ABC Action News, one family, the Bader family, they evacuated with their three storms before the storm hit. And they said the dad stood there, he understood his risks, he said. He said he was sleeping, water started filling the family home, but he was able to get out because of Rafael, the family's pet tortoise. The 10 year old reptile woke him up as the floodwaters began to rise.

He said, the dad said, quote, he was banging all 70 pounds of himself on the slider just trying to get away from the water. He's a land tortoise. He's not a tortoise.

He's a turtle. So they don't live in the water. So he moved Rafael to higher ground for his safety and evacuated on a canoe with his dog, cat, whatever else he could grab. You didn't evacuate the pets with the family. Like the hell is wrong with you? You send the dog and the cat and the tortoise with the mom and the kids if you're going to stay there.

What in the world? They go, no, flooding is not what happens in Shore Acres. You know, they said that, you know, the storms kind of sit around, but they go it's a real flood. The losses were extensive. They lost everything. In their house, in their car.

But guess what? The pets and the family tortoise, they all survived. I mean, he had like a little Noah's canoe here going through the floodwaters. I'm glad they were OK. But I mean, man, first off, how do you sleep in a storm like that?

His tortoise woke him up. That's kind of crazy. All right.

This is. By the way, she looks like a dude. Miami police rescued a woman Thursday morning. They said she stripped and jumped in the water, holding her three year old nephew to avoid being arrested. But Marina took the escape to a whole other level. She took off her clothes and jumped in the water with her nephew. And they said they it was disturbing because this kid trusts his aunt and she just literally threw him in the water with her.

They said that Marina swam across the bay toward Brickell Key and Marine Patrol pulled her and her nephew out of the water. So there I mean, there's like apparently like a video of it. I mean, she like threw the kid was crying. I mean, he was terrified. I mean, why in the world?

Why? And it was in Dade County, which, by the way, there's like a whole Instagram account of arrests and stuff. And it's called Only in Dade. Just go say that's hmm.

Let's see this. A man is accused. Oh, my gosh, of killing his teenage son with a saw. His 16 year old, Polk County Sheriff Stephen Lee Rotta was living with his grandfather to help him while his grandmother was in a rehab facility. And the father apparently, when the grandfather came home after visiting his mother, he was in a rehab facility. When the grandfather came home after visiting his wife, his 37 year old son told the dad don't go outside the mobile home. I killed someone you may need to call the police.

They found a heavy duty saw. This is horrible. He was totally arrested. I think he has an extensive criminal history and I think should be put to death immediately.

My opinion. Oh, my gosh, a Florida man. Let's just go to this one. He was on a Lux Nantucket yacht. The Florida doctor was busted with guns, drugs and prostitutes. He literally had Hunter's Dream here on this yacht. And oh, and all kinds of more than just cocaine to a police responded to a call about a woman's possible overdose on a petite super yacht. And they arrested its owner, a physician who retired in Florida.

Scott Burke faces a dozen drug and firearm charges. I mean, he was living Hunter Biden's dream. As students begin heading back to school. Do you think they'll be learning about the founding principles that made America the freest and most prosperous nation in history? Well, they learn that our unalienable rights are God given and not granted.

By government, will they be given a full and honest account of our nation's history? The answer to all of these questions is yes for students at Hillsdale College.

That's You have people struggling now to send their kids to college. I did read, I'm going to see if I can pull this up. I wasn't going to talk about this, but I did save it. I read this story and it's talking about Gen Z and colleges.

I'm going to pull it up here. Gen Z and they're basically not going, not as many of them are going to college as previous. It's the declining college interest persists.

Business Insider, there are a number of, I mean, there's actually a fast company. Gen Z doesn't care about getting a four year college degree. Gen Z doesn't care about college.

There is a difference. I will say this, I do think some things you need to go to college for. Like if you're going to be a doctor, you're going to cut up people and rearrange your guts. Yeah, kind of want you to go and have higher education. You know what I'm saying?

I think for some things, law schools and things like that, I think you do need, you do need that. But not everything does and not everybody's made for it. Here's what's different, though. And I will say the good side and the bad side of social media. I can't, I haven't yet been able to determine if it's net good or net bad, the internet and tech and social media combined.

Then I see what other generations are able to use it for to get around the burdens placed upon them by my parents' generation. Sorry. There, I know there's a lot of conservative boomers out there.

Y'all been fighting real hard and you know, God love you. But there were a lot of progressive boomers out there. Okay. A lot of progressive Clinton kind of boomers out there that did a lot of stuff. A lot of the people in the Senate, progressive boomers that decided to nationalize student loans. And you had some conservative boomers that fought really hard against that. But the reason I say this is because, so there was a report, actually, there were a couple of reports, the one that I'm looking at right now, because there was a nerd wallet one, there was one from Student Clearinghouse Research Center, I'm just going through, because I'm my point in telling you all of this is that it's it's kind of widespread.

It's not just one survey, there's actually several over a span of two years. And I don't think it's an aversion to higher education. I think Gen Z is being very financially smart. Fortune Magazine did a piece on this that I had saved at the start of this year, where it said they don't necessarily need a college degree for a successful career. And that's because the employment landscape has changed to where you have more opportunity as an independent contractor now than you do did ever before.

And with a lot of the services and opportunities that exist by way of tech and internet and all this other stuff, a lot of people are really, they're, they're doing it themselves. And the pandemic expedited this. It expedited the exodus away from universities. So student debt, total student debt is like, what, 2 trillion? And a lot of big employers have been dropping degree requirements. When I was graduating high school in the in the late 90s, it was not like that it was you even it was still expected that I mean, this is a very new thing. They said that there are 1 million fewer college students today than there were in 2019. So you have people who are I don't want to say that the are I don't I hate the phrase content creator.

I just can't stand it because I think it it there's I don't think it accurately discusses what is being done. Like I've seen some really smart like for instance, I have seen smart content creators that teach you like the next generation about you know, basic home repair. There's stuff on carpentry.

There's stuff women have stuff where they they from of all ages where they talk to women about how the the best way to style yourself or do your hair and makeup within this particular budget or this or that there's like something for everybody. I just really started to watch this Italian chef do all of these like very simple Italian dishes because I eat super clean like I have the only dairy sometimes I'll have some cheese, but I don't do dairy. I just do red meat. And I do red meat and vegetables. That's all I do. And no processed sugar or nothing.

And I've been wanting to find you know, I've been trying to kind of a modified paleo because I do like pasta, and Italy ruined me. So I've been watching this and he just does these like really quick, like, you know, 60 to 80 second video. I mean, that's the kind of that I think is smart and people can make livings off of this. And it's like a new way to consume information. In some instances, it's like the new publishing, because our attention spans have shrank. People don't sit and read. I think a very particular type of people sit and read giant books anymore.

Just kind of sad. But there's my point is that there's so many opportunities out there. I think that Gen Z doesn't have to wed themselves to the old formula of success. And they don't they definitely don't. And that's why they don't care. It's not because they're lazy.

I just think that they just they have a reason for this declining interest. So that was kind of good because so few of them and they're making like six figures like there's this chick who's in nail tech. And just off of the stuff that she puts online, she makes six figures.

That's crazy. There are people who watch video games and, and play them and test video games out and they make a ton of money. I mean, there's in people now, especially young Gen Z, they don't know people who are on television. They don't know TV stars or even movies.

They know the people they know the stuff I was just talking about, like people on YouTube and people on TikTok and people on Instagram. I mean, they have like, for instance, there was a guy who they talk about Gen Z immediately, like this one guy they talked to who left his high school and went to HVAC. And he's got a super amazing like he's set for life.

This dude is set for life. He goes, I didn't want to come out with a six figure debt. And then, you know, get go into a job where I'm not even using my degree. I mean, there's, there's, I mean, there's so many of these stories and people don't have to rely and I kind of like that. I kind of like, so in some ways, I don't want to denigrate it too much because I think it's giving them a leg up on these bad progressive policies who have made it to where they have to be super creative.

To get around this stuff. But I do think like I said, if you're cutting people open and you're rearranging guts, yeah, I really want you to go and get as much education about gut rearranging as possible. You know what I'm saying?

I just need you to do that. But I think if you're going to get a doctorate in a humanities course, you're, I'm sorry if you have one. I think it's idiotic. And I'm not calling you a doctor.

I won't do it unless you can prescribe meds or rearrange guts and doing it. Caltech invented the concealed carry category years ago with the P11. But did they stop there?

Heck no. One innovation just led to another and another and I'll just look at their latest. The P15. It's the lightest, thinnest double stack nine millimeter handgun on the market at only 14 ounces and seven eighth inches wide. The P15 has a four inch barrel and double stack magazine that holds 15 plus one total capacity. It's gator grip texture on the polymer version increases stability and makes for ambidextrous grip safety and easy, accurate handling. If you prefer a more vintage look, choose the metal version with classic wood panels and textured grips. The P15 has a tritium plus fiber optic front sight with a fully adjustable tritium two dot rear to keep you on target in any situation. Make the P15 your choice for concealed carry.

That's K-E-L-T-E-C And now all of the news you would probably miss. It's time for Dana's quick five. So on this day in 1504, Michelangelo's David was revealed in Florence. If you ever get a chance to go and see it, you absolutely should.

It's very cool and his butt is huge. Moving on because that was important to say. The One Chip Challenge.

Why are things so stupid? This is NBC. It's called the One Chip Challenge.

It's been pulled. So a spicy tortilla chip is accused. The mother is saying that this chip contributed to her son's death.

They're called Paki. They're super spicy tortilla chips, and it's marketed as the one chip challenge. So like it's so spicy, you can only have one. And a woman says that her son consumed a single chip and it killed him. The chips are sold individually, and their seasoning includes the Carolina Reaper and another super hot pepper.

But the Reaper is like the hottest pepper in the world. And each chip is packaged in a coffin-shaped container with a skull on the front. And so a 14-year-old ate the chip, went to the school nurse with a stomach ache, passed out, and he was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The autopsy hasn't come in, but now the chip manufacturer, they're pulling them from the shelves. So I don't know why you would, that's like a novelty thing. I just, I don't know.

Let's see. Also, this is interesting. AI-generated, an AI-generated song done by Drake. AI-generated Drake song is up for a Grammy nomination. It's a track made from an AI-generated vocal track of Drake, and it was submitted to the Recording Academy for Grammy nominations in two different categories.

And it's from an anonymous producer called Ghostwriter using AI. And I, is this gonna, what if it wins? Like, what if it wins? Because then it's using AI. There's a lot of questions that are coming up here. So they said that Universals, they sent a mass email to all these streaming services asking them to block AI from harvesting melodies. This is going to be a huge fight. It's not just with films. Rescuers are racing to save a US cave explorer trapped 3000 feet underground in Turkey.

He got horrible, horrible stomach issues, and now he's like too weak to get out of the cave and they're fighting to save him and keep him alive. We're talking about IRS and AI. Speaking of military, Julio Rosas had this story. It's very interesting. So he writes over at Town Hall, US Southern Command in Doral, Florida was going to host two screenings of Sound of Freedom in August and October, but they canceled after the Military Times, a little bit left leaning, inquired about. Oh, it is too. I can hear someone say no, it's not.

Yes, it is. Inquired about it. The framing of the story that they had is like they parroted everything that Legacy Press was saying. They were trying to tie it to QAnon conspiracy theories, and acting like it's just a bunch of conspiracy theories, even though it's legit based on an actual story. It is literally based on a real story about child sex trafficking, which is a major problem. I mean, are people if you haven't seen it, I bought tickets for it. I haven't gone to a theater to see it. I get real when if the kids are animals involved, man, that's heavy for me.

I get real upset. And especially and I know it and I've I've actually watched some docs about the guy who, you know, really this all kicked off on I mean, I think you need to support the film. If you can't go to a theater and see it, you need to purchase tickets anyway. But it and Jim Caviezel obviously is in it. Mira Sorvino, who I adore.

I love Mira Sorvino. And her late father, Paul. The because it's about Tim Ballard.

Everybody knows Tim, I've met Tim Ballard before he's just that he can do what he does is absolutely amazing. And, you know, he's, you know, some of the stories and the things that he's gone through. And these are all real things, right? These are all real. They're real stories.

These are real things that are happening. And I don't know why the Military Times would question the screening of this. It was it's based on a real story has nothing to do with QAnon anything. I don't even know what the hell QAnon is. I honestly think it's a government psyop.

I really do. I have theories on that. I actually think it was like some co Intel Pro psyop where they were trying to like, turn conservatives against each I really do.

I have like theories on this. But they I guess we're trying to say that because Jim Caviezel talks like a conservative, this is probably QAnon and you can you believe the military is going to do it. So they they asked about the film showing Southcom nix the event, and they sent an email out to the base that they cancel the free screenings to prevent the appearance of copyright infringement. But no, the film was you could view it at local you could I mean, anybody could see it. And they made it very, very clear that they wanted people to screen it.

And the Military Times then went to say, Oh, well, Caviezel's personal views are problematic to the nature of the movie. And then, and then the Military Times cited Media Matters, the Soros funded smear arm of the Democratic Party. It is source funded.

Go and look at Open Secrets. It's been funded. It was created with his cash through Tides Foundation still funded. I have fought with Media Matters for 15 years. Yes, they are. How in the hell are you citing that if you want to talk about QAnon stuff? That's like the anything Media Matters is the leftist version of that.
