The five so polling wanted to follow up clarify something federally -- our last discussion about immigration about it mentioned something about you figure when it it is out there illegal mowing -- I didn't say they're illegal all everyone I know you -- instantly and you know simply meant to say there's.
There's -- there's a big group of cash there's a catch black market business going on it was it was like trying to -- and I did.
It's a figure out exactly they're fat man.
-- -- Actually -- -- outnumbered sat alone at -- I apologize -- -- let's let's share the loving heart that was beautiful okay so let's let's go to a what I think is a particularly horrifying story that came out this week.
A group of atheists.
Accurately called American Atheists answer -- I have decided to sue in New York mayor Michael Bloomberg New Jersey governor Chris Christie as well as the states of New Jersey and the city of New York.
Over this ground zero cross now -- this cross was found literally within 2436.
Hours after the attacks on 9/11.
It's two pieces of the beam of one of the World Trade Center towers there you can see it.
Perfectly shaped cross and it is -- on the site of ground zero for the last ten years well this group American -- is now suing.
To prevent this cross for being displayed at the nine elevenths memorial pulling you were there on 9/11 at ground 00 -- on Wall Street.
Your house and I -- the second plane fly into the tower so towers come down I saw friends I saw people so people -- witnessed horrible scene.
But I did also CS so George Bush get up on.
On the wreckage and say if that they'll hear you don't hear you loud and clear and the people who took down these buildings will will hear you unclear when that cross emerged.
It was kind of like the symbol of hope and the whole area was devastated.
-- and we saw that it was like.
There's hope someone is gonna look down and in take care this area and they have -- now that eight is when He yanked that.
I'm outraged -- moderate Sunni -- -- -- -- that someone -- but I know agenda yeah.
LR that's the way it well fed and happy to be so big it having to be standing like that everyone's is that while.
And that in that you know -- it of the Teddy bears in the flowers around the thing that I.
Half is just a sacred symbol on average ground -- Yeah absolutely at look I guess that's what happened when you don't believe in god -- of all this extra time because you're not praying it use it for unproductive things like suing about this.
The fact of the matter is the atheists are upset because it's the only religious symbol they say there's no -- the religious symbol around.
That's not because it's not allowed to have another religious symbol around I mean.
I just think this is absolutely ridiculous HP's New York City need to find something better to do with their time -- don't you think that.
That ground zero represents a battle in this war and the war was brought to us on 9/11 by Islamic terrorists acting in the name of their faith.
But we can't put up a symbol of christianity or Judy -- -- -- or anything else.
Thing is it was I mean I think we established it wasn't even a created simple it was an accidental symbol so be the argument that we -- we created this -- is a bit weird.
Yet I think He was I have no I have absolutely no quarrel with eighties and I think the eternal question that we all face in the -- -- parts of our night.
Is whether there is a god or not and people come to this decision of their own however this is a really really stupid battle to fight.
And I don't see these guys going to military cemeteries and pluck and and going hey I'm a white crosses that lets get rid of these -- cross.
They look if you share did you never let you sleep better tonight there is a god but history is a bigger point nine knows you don't get me in trouble and I know you don't like -- saying -- but.
-- got to remember nine elevenths.
But it ten years ago.
Now in the meantime we have had the Patriot Act which taken we were talking the talk about that later take away a lot of our rights we've closed out a lot of our buildings we have dogs everywhere fifteen different -- -- agencies is spy on everybody else.
At some point we gotta get back to live in our lives I know it's sensitive G Erica I know you have friends -- there but we can't keep going back denial.
I'm says it's because He barely remembers what happened yesterday entitlement don't know -- -- I don't I don't diminish -- it ought to shame that we can't him.
Didn't really live our lives Bob Saudi court that what happened -- children war -- everywhere and as testaments to Americans who lost their lives.
In the course of warm weather and service or as civilians.
So this memorial means so much to the survivors who have lost loved ones and have this -- ABC -- Well we don't write those down our seventh and we don't closed on the mall in Washington which happens -- what I live up.
And closes doors to the Supreme Court is getting -- over the -- -- paraphrasing here of getting over the world -- -- 9/11 what does that have you doable let a lot of these people to put across so there I mean this is -- I thought I should have brought a bit obvious on every single but there's a five dollar bill -- were all we trust we also -- -- was just automatically think that's my I.
And by the way you know what we should all be libertarian on this question you know we don't care what faith you practice and if you choose not to believe.
That's fine too and -- for.
Easy -- shouldn't care about that don't silence -- nobody was complaining either think they claim that He will be offended but nobody nobody that is -- and it did exactly or pull up next on the five how how far are you willing to let the government go.
