Let's find out if we've gotten anything wrong so far for that we don't go to Paula mercurial golf golf the parliamentarian -- yet.
It's golf you are you sitting in outstanding like he -- -- -- stand Paul I look like an African giant.
Really yeah the city is built to gut -- specification.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- You're blew -- hole giants have a good week at the end okay yeah that's a big man.
All right -- we get to this -- a true story.
Jamie you said it's.
It's not it's not as if people join the military without weighing their options at this stage of their lies can I remind you these are high school students okay.
They don't way text that they send FaceBook.
Status is that they -- they really think that they have the semblance in the -- and the maturity to waste some jurors -- -- Post 9/11 I -- -- they had they understand that if they join the military they're the very likely that very possibly gonna go into conflict I can't imagine anyone makes a decision -- -- high -- that well but if you look at those Navy SEALs commercials you know it and you're like one European -- away from being a man.
There is a little bit of that assertive pushing -- -- -- -- and he didn't have that problem when he was recruited because he's not a bright guy but.
You know that there is something to be said for assertive full of -- the fair disclosure -- -- -- but I love -- just to see who they're gonna issues -- the anti right anti war protesters a lot of these guys are are not giving I credible information a lot of them.
Give a lot of this nine nonsense propaganda you -- of North Korean apologists.
Ferret out enough I'll give you -- -- meaning you have to pick the right -- and I do agree with you one thing about the lawyers.
It that you have few disgruntled lawyers if you have the other side I was a lawyer and you know I thought it was going to be you know money and whatever and it turned out to be.
23 hours a day of my soul locked in a box along -- my sex drives are angry about that but -- But Paul to be fair that's because you were crappy lawyer I whatever they're both -- -- -- and -- -- very successful and very happy.
That I'm actually going on not crappy extremely -- of -- -- little -- Yes it's Saturday night.
I think that.
Why did you stay seated their big men.
That he can -- mosques.
I guess where I am I on this review is down.
You know you said anti war protests don't offer kids anything.
Why am I yeah I agree with you that this is -- a career path to be an anti war activists.
But it is an option for someone to sort of think about well what it is what's the downside to pursuing something like this even though they may be poor in this is their only option is to make some money.
Earn a living while -- get.
-- I I don't think that the recruiters for the most part I think -- shady people everywhere but for the most part I don't think there.
Recruiters -- like lying tricking people like talking.
Commencing July at a tricky tricking people but I do think that that there is it's undecided at the kitchen here don't you agree on -- I I do agree but I also think there's another side of lost school there's another side of getting in today ad agency I think any big play stitching may I think you know there's the excitement of his at -- I think -- military.
-- -- And million different wonderful thing if he -- -- for some people taking got that -- and the problem with them going and then you know.
-- telling kids about both sides but I think like a lot of people here I mean what these people that are going to be going again.
Different -- I -- Constantin if if you're high school student someone told you hey this is the option to go to militaries in into the military would it wouldn't.
You think you have the semblance of maturity to sort of be able to sort of make that decision when you're in high school because you're playing with -- and blowing them up so it sounds.
That I wasn't -- I still -- that the best is that the magnifying glass in the -- maybe you're perfect.
You're perfect got to go into the military I know but I definitely on the Internet it's.
Tom look you know I Allison have fairly Smart guy in high school I think I -- figured it out for myself.
But like I said I think out certainly in a place like -- you know everyone's kinda.
Pretty chill there whatnot I think it -- there's no harm offering some information and it's you know just having conversations and you know just encouraging -- conversation about moving -- state.
Think things through you know kind of see both sides that.
How do we know -- -- what kind of people are are actually.
Recruited to be recruiters in the first place and that kind of seems like maybe not I don't know as -- grandfather on barrier but isn't the war isn't what I mean in the military yeah like you what you have to be made a damn good soldier in -- -- -- terrorists -- absolutely yeah yeah yeah.
Yeah Stacy yeah I do not buy that but I just think it's a conversation this is information that they're offering -- So what we've learned is if we ever invade the valley of the dolls costing his first one hand -- -- -- -- -- had not -- -- yeah but I -- I think it also propagate this myth.
That the people are going in the military were all due to go in there and they had known auctions and not and never get them.
You're telling whether you're going to the other extreme and it witted and I think that that's unfair to I -- I agree -- that not everybody's being duped but at times.
You know it once her duty turns -- fourteen tours of duty -- people start scratching their heads but moving on you're all wrong in Constantine is right.
Moving on to.
-- -- that's our next topic which is Boy Scouts.
From my point of view you know I mean you obviously have an issue this but we're not talk about a boy who wants to play basketball against girls -- -- we're talking about a boy wants to sell.
Cookies basically a -- actually think this is his actual motive.
Is he just wants to get close to the cookies and doesn't care -- -- -- what do you think.
I think it very well because if you -- have an issue in his eye and said it was -- is a private organization they can choose what they want.
But I think it -- some level they can't be just dictated but what would have seven year old kid wants to do the parents are his parents -- and maybe they should also be I think.
I agree -- two -- three doesn't know but it's seven if you get a read the story and you look at the -- that this kid is clearly committed to being a girl at this point it's fair to say he's made that decision is probably all went -- to make the decision this.
-- -- I've quit you you think that at seventeen can't you're not not capable -- and on the military gonna happen.
You're able -- -- to make a decision -- going to be girl -- guy and change your gender identity well I think there's a big contradiction they let let let's be clear on the ombudsman -- now -- Bill I -- going to you I mean you obviously.
Look like here.
Ready for some sort of organization I'm not exactly sure what it is -- recruited by the kiss army.
It's unifying of the tongue -- -- now and -- -- -- I.
God I I think that I think it is the end of the day and I did -- -- -- on a slippery slope.
-- -- does that celebrities and.
How on hamas' point about where do you draw the line is actually a valid one -- And we in terms of what where these where these where these kids.
A child like this transgendered child like this wants to go next Girl Scouts feel he feels fairly harmless but then where does it take us if you want to be in the locker room with the girls how would you handle that if you were a principal of the school months.
I'm not I put on you being so surprising -- a valid point well.
Lots of pointed actually about that I don't lose by the way it I think it opens you have bill Wear them.
At a bar them back again.
Mining -- -- -- LA yeah.
And let me thank god that we like we've actually seen this scenario you mentioned it was a Rodney Dangerfield movie I think was called lady bug it is okay we're gonna.
Boy I was dressed up as a girl to play on the soccer team and that -- -- and pretty.
Yeah I bet I.
And then there was you want a man whose truth.
I'm -- I'm glad I'm -- gets the last word on this issue.
I I don't know I have a daughter I don't know I would be comfortable when it you know avoid being -- you know the same restaurants are -- Your -- -- fair enough moving on the scary movies.
Constantin you said pet cemetery like as what -- you -- movies fourth the fourth time I agree you because nothing sexier than -- mile.
Really really scared just gets me off.
Could I think it completely right at thank you definitely yeah thank you know.
What is wrong with you.
Listen I'm a -- but now bill and yet you would mean it looks scared that that's the hot shots -- Really -- I'd twilight snuff films okay stop -- a giants fan among little people.

Revised the atmosphere that -- of daylight summer like all right anyway.
The axis is built to completely wrong that thing was scary the first year came out but they've been so many carries a parodies of that movie.
