Jon

Hello, Grit Theory, this is Jon Mayo, and I have Lindsey with me this time around, the recording studio. How are you?


08;06;23;28 - 08;06;19;24

Lindsey

I'm good. How are you? Well, really weird, But glad to be hear.


08;06;19;15 - 08;06;18;26

Jon

You didn't like it.


08;06;18;12 - 08;06;15;26

Lindsey

It was just interesting. How different it's different.


08;06;15;25 - 08;06;13;18

Jon

I was thinking like, Good morning Vietnam. Like.


08;06;13;10 - 08;06;12;23

Lindsey

Oh yeah.


08;06;12;23 - 08;06;10;19

Jon

Hello, Grit Theory nation.


08;06;10;13 - 08;06;09;20

Lindsey

Okay, got it.


08;06;09;17 - 08;06;08;16

Jon

We're not quite there yet, but.


08;06;08;12 - 08;06;06;02

Lindsey

That makes a lot more sense with the context now.


08;06;05;25 - 08;05;44;18

Jon

Dream big. So let's just jump straight into it. Here's the bottom line. My company yesterday came out and put forth information that I'm to prove my vaccinate my vaccine status and comply or lose my job by December eighth.


08;05;43;00 - 08;05;26;18

Jon

That's what came out yesterday. I imagine that over the course of the coming months, things will change and the rodeo is now begun in full. Where are we talking about this? Pretty simple. We've talked a lot recently about grit.


08;05;26;14 - 08;05;15;15

Jon

We've talked a lot about freedom. We've talked a lot about the ideals we want to bring forth in this country. The things we want to champion, protect, safeguard, teach our sons to be men and in all these other things.


08;05;14;29 - 08;04;52;04

Jon

And now we have an opportunity in this mandate coming to our home on what our stance is going to be. You know, I want to be really clear. The vaccine status, whether you have it, whether you want it, whether you don't is irrelevant here, the fact that they would require me to upload a.


08;04;52;02 - 08;04;50;29

Lindsey

Proof of purchase.


08;04;50;29 - 08;04;28;29

Jon

Proof of purchase. Yeah, this. Passport thing under this government directive is a violation of our freedom and rights. And I will not comply. And you and I have discussed it, and we've determined that our house will not comply that we have.


08;04;27;11 - 08;04;05;27

Jon

So we're putting our money where our mouth is. We have 48 days, including today, to figure out what our next steps are to prepare ourselves. We will continue to advocate and champion. Freedom and liberty and the things that make this land the best stinking place you can possibly live on in this world period.


08;04;04;28 - 08;04;04;02

Lindsey

I want to bring it back.


08;04;03;01 - 08;04;00;09

Jon

Yeah, at this point, we're quite literally fighting for it. Yeah.


08;03;59;18 - 08;03;57;04

Lindsey

So we got to fight to keep it. You know?


08;03;55;24 - 08;03;48;06

Jon

There's a lot of people I've had conversations with over the last couple of days who because of the stance, you and I have decided really last 24 hours.


08;03;47;00 - 08;03;32;02

Lindsey

Well, we sort of decided this. This isn't just a this came out of left field. We had to decide this. This has been a conversation that you and I have had. It's been thought out conversation. It's been. Where will we stand if this comes knocking on our door?


08;03;31;24 - 08;03;20;02

Lindsey

Are we willing to do? The hard thing. Are we willing to lose everything to fight for freedom for not just us, not just the boys, but for those around us too? Yeah.


08;03;19;16 - 08;03;17;28

Jon

And you're absolutely right.


08;03;17;28 - 08;03;17;12

Lindsey

And we are.


08;03;16;27 - 08;03;01;16

Jon

We damn right. We are. And we're going to. And here's the thing it's not a flippant response. We have been considering it and we've been preparing ourselves for this eventuality. Mentally, we're not in a place financially to lose our job or not in a place to absorb this pleasantly.


08;03;00;29 - 08;02;44;02

Jon

And I remember someone reach out to me because I shared a story of this pilot who had like a science like five kids, no jab, no job type of deal. And he's like, This is somebody post. It's crap if you, you know, freedom of choice doesn't mean freedom from consequences.


08;02;43;26 - 08;02;27;26

Jon

I'd say, yeah, you're absolutely right. Freedom of choice doesn't mean freedom of consequence. Here I am exercising my freedom of choice. I'm going to utilize my freedom to create freedom for people. I'm going to put my action. Behind my strength behind.


08;02;26;15 - 08;02;01;06

Jon

Advocating and defending liberty and what's made this country amazing so that our children can experience that. And I'm frankly tired of the justifications. I'm tired of the gray area and talk out I'm tired of people making excuses for themselves to maintain their comfort and to maintain their plasticity as.


08;01;59;26 - 08;01;38;02

Jon

What we. Have benefited from his falling apart around us and being maliciously attacked. So. I do feel heavily about this, and I'm willing to pay the price and I'm willing to. Meet the consequences head on, and as a family, we've chosen that we will do that together and we will lead our sons in that and we will


08;01;38;02 - 08;01;25;15

Jon

teach them from it. And we will create something in it. We don't know what that is yet, but will we know there's a way through it in that the best chance for them to have a good future is for not another inch to be given.


08;01;24;04 - 08;01;09;08

Jon

So here you are. Here we are. So given that this is where we are. And given that the future is uncertain and that's fine, that's one of the joys of living in a free society is there's ups and downs.


08;01;08;10 - 08;00;49;09

Jon

We are looking to grow our community. We are looking for opportunity where we can come together with like minded people and work together and provide for our families together and to create something beautiful out of the chaos and the despair that is all around us right now.


08;00;49;08 - 08;00;35;08

Jon

So if you happen to be someone who's interested in that or if you're aware of an opportunity, yeah, that we could partner with you in or work together and let us know. And if not, that's fine. We don't have a lot to discuss about today.


08;00;34;20 - 08;00;19;23

Jon

It's more of just a statement of fact. If you're wondering where the males are at, that's where we are, and it's going to take everyone who believes these same things and thinks these same things to start speaking up and acting based on those convictions.


08;00;19;04 - 08;00;18;08

Lindsey

And we stand boldly.


08;00;17;27 - 08;00;13;08

Jon

Yeah, stop hiding in the shadows. Yeah. Let's step into the light and make it shine.


08;00;12;13 - 08;00;08;29

Lindsey

So now more than ever learned to the harvest your grit.


08;00;08;03 - 08;00;02;28

Jon

Yeah, we're walking boldly in in courage, bravery and determination despite difficulty.
