One day, Chris Arnade strolled into an area of New York City he rarely ventured into: the Bronx. That day began a journey, spent in McDonalds and churches, in drug dens and places where the homeless congregate, for the Wall Street trader. In his new book, “Dignity: Seeking Respect in Back Row America,” Arnade highlights the America too many of our elites would rather ignore. He joins the podcast to share what he learned about politics (and why he correctly predicted Donald Trump would win in 2016), religion, addiction, and much more.

We also cover these stories:
• There were 144,000 migrants apprehended at the U.S. – Mexico border in May.
• A teacher who is transitioning from male to female made a video he showed to his elementary school students to explain his new persona.
• YouTube is tightening its censorship.

    The elites don’t have skin in the game, do not generally suffer from the ill consequences of their good intentions. I wonder how long before Chris realizes that those good intentions seem to always benefit the front row students. I think he learned more about us, than we learned about him. 

    When you make a living that is messed with by policies (cash for clunkers is an example), you have to figure out how to adapt, not the people who thought it up and implemented it. The consequences of that policy alone caused damage to the back row people. To destroy a running vehicle so someone can buy a new one, made not sense to people who need used vehicles because they can’t buy a new one.

    We make fun of people, like Hillary, who tell us how broke she and Bill were, or Obama wondering about the price of arugela.
