Let's find out who got anything wrong so far without getting TVs and -- -- -- any trigger or -- all right skip and a jump right into a lot a please do.
GOP debate Nicky said what's gonna hurt Mitt Romney is that he can't defend Romney care I actually like the way he defended it in the debate he said quote.
The states can do whatever the heck they want that -- has an interest in reading of the constitution.
It has send but I don't like the profanity coming -- from president candidate well -- good point you would think he would know better -- What is -- good substitution for -- I don't -- -- -- HE double hockey sticks for the whole point of heck was that it was a substitution net HP it happened oh.
-- I agree with you that debate.
-- shouldn't be a big deal.
Except that it's been decided that it's a big deal so now he has to -- Brawl doesn't want to pick on someone like the army that does not let's talk about and has yet the reality of hair yet.
I -- Rick Perry's net worth just under three million dollars so he probably could afford to take that he -- about a lot more than 101000 I actually think Romney's chief.
He can now I have to I learned -- the problem is he -- either.
-- should have bet a lot less or a lot more right now issued a bet ten bucks or ten million dollars annually in fact sheet debt.
-- -- -- said today it makes you wanna rethink Mormon isn't but you should know that the church of latter day saints is very strongly opposed to gambling.
And -- -- Missed.
The very strongly what do you how come -- any then again what religion isn't.
We don't want to punch.
She me -- But the thing I do think -- really get -- Romney is his opposition to Gingrich's plan for the massive new program to build a permanent lunar colony him.
By it to me this isn't a real example of -- have Romney is how many people.
Would love to work on the moon yes and he just dismisses it act because he doesn't need a job what does -- care that.
And these are new jobs jobs it -- -- they are what -- -- about all the old jobs we've lost the people that I've been replaced by AT and absolutely absolutely.
Now I can go work on the moon this is what I'm -- -- tellers become crater diggers.
Have you guys he -- The movie moon.
Not all it's cracked up to -- you find out you there by yourself but there's a closet full of you clones yeah it sounds like Kevin Spacey you go crazy.
The thing is it works out fine and until you discover.
Gas is now.
Yeah five along those points -- you asked if -- ever been a lunar colony that has worked out well how about I'm lines of the moon is a harsh mistress.
Also you can argue that 2001 and well nowadays forty you can argue that -- -- -- you got us started comedy purposes of -- -- You have time Dieter of sounds of wind.
What's your problem don't I never saw 2001 don't -- the ending -- -- really whereas for a look charming and came out and I don't 69 and really really general group.
Bruce closes it goes I don't know -- Unbelievable thing.
Occupy Wall Street stuff AKA the -- underwear story.
-- -- -- you both brought up the fact that by disrupting the ports the occupiers actually hurting blue collar workers which is true.
But can you say that the same thing about anything they protest what about the assistance -- the janitors who work on Wall Street.
Well Mike said that about that very thing on this very -- did -- about that very point and just out tonight weeks ago -- weeks ago -- All I do about this three and a half years ago the last month on the -- all of them.
Yeah I thought what workers and the -- -- -- the subways that was a bit of a problem at metro lot.
North railroads don't necessarily pay nine dollars my doctors for the port is any industry that you're -- protest you're gonna.
You're gonna harm you're gonna annoying more than like 10% and the rich people that are sitting in their own rights as a disaster does that mean you don't protest -- I think you have every right to protest but just might be beaten be mindful of who you're actually disrupting.
Your own people Alex Lindsay did that it doesn't did you really talk about -- subway traffic being impeded.
I am really happy that I know what I'm talking yeah it was a meatball on -- yeah.
That's right and he of course if you preserve the right approach it's pointless though just don't -- yeah you know it's it's not a freedom.
It's pointless and I the only thing -- do too much for him.
I want him -- and a but whenever you guys never really talked about that the course that's gonna be -- next year I don't know about that yet.
I gotta read this quote from this professor of sociology Columbia University he says quote.
OWS as a topic of study offers prison -- opportunities to consider the changing shape of inequality in our society.
And the dynamic process is prophecies of repertoire change in social movements globally.
From the picket line to the city into the consideration of life course trajectories among other themes central to the sociological apprehension of the modern context.
Well -- without any other of those have you thought this course would be worthless I just I'm -- other than pure grant.
Intellectual as -- what's wrong with that the only thing wrong with that description is that it doesn't include the Tea Party because.
The professor is ideologically opposed to the Tea Party are all -- saying is is that it gives show lot of opportunities talk about the ways in which before senator feel like -- done and I am.
Right but I think the point I don't know why -- thought why not say it the way you just it.
And -- you governor Bob.
I agree with you now that I know you have to that I think this this is my point I think.
Hot -- -- I think -- class.
Is a great thing I think it's wonderful that -- -- going to be a college course that actually inspires the kids and teach them how to be lazy do nothing.
I hear all of out of there and -- But an NYU NYU -- I -- Columbia was professor at that professor was from Columbia was speaking of that and my of course he yeah.
-- I don't think it will dial back -- don't go to college.
None of them being escorted out the -- -- Sanders -- that.
I -- to be passenger advocates and airports Greg you read this quote from New York State senator Michael -- in RS he said.
I appreciate the TSE's work to keep their passengers -- passengers should not be humiliated and degraded during their travels.
And you said speak for yourself.
To clarify the senator was referring to people being humiliated and degraded against their will so you would still be fun stuff can't -- -- -- -- -- -- -- you're opposed to just as you think you would just add another layer of bureaucracy and bill as you pointed out this would just be hiring another TSA the person.
What if the passengers advocate wasn't a TSA employee.
Who -- they got a bit I don't.
There was a recent congressional.
Report on TSA we spent 57 billion dollars since 9/11 on -- assignment and everybody with the exception of the TSA people agree that they've done virtually nothing.
To prevent the next 9/11 how do you know that okay well above two ways one is that this is 9/11 the threat of that ended.
When they reinforced cockpit doors of planes can't be commandeered the way that they were yeah and then beyond that all of the high profile one attempts to take down a plane.
It was passengers beaten the hell out of people like it was -- on a Sunday night.
That had nothing to do with the screen -- you can still.
Blow up I -- playing without getting in the cockpit.
You -- -- -- some of the shoe bomber.
-- yeah and who got rid of the issue.
We've got rid of the underwear bomber if we can talk about he had been underway on the show and appointed as -- it -- they caught them.
Yeah that's the thing they -- them why are they adding another layer security every time they catch somebody nova -- -- point is they didn't catch them both of those guys got on the plane and at.
I think there was a phenomenal I was a TSA -- catch him in and passengers.
Once they got on the plane the passengers.
Acted everywhere still take our shoes off were stolen you know I'm not big publishers gels and liquids and lotions and I we have a better way lap -- underwear on planes for like three -- and then there's an end up next.
I got I got to have my lotion.
For a speaking -- -- how did you know that I can't meet up last night he wasn't allowed to contact -- and intricate.
-- brings on Alec Baldwin first of all I don't know for sure my guess is that Baldwin gets residuals when 30 Rock episodes are played on American Airlines flight so I don't really blame the union the flight attendant union for wanting it -- -- -- make money from -- point five -- -- the airlines are little to talk with people enjoy Easter this was just a stewardess on a power trip for some opportunities to.
We're airline attendants what do.
It's it's it's easy to blame them for something like this but all they're doing is enforcing federal law the federal law may well be stupid I I think it is.
But they don't get to choose they don't get to say -- this federal law is stupid I'm not gonna force.
Yeah I don't have to don't tell me that you don't think that what an airline stewardess or attend.
Season's celebrity on there they're not gonna try to make a name them solve every once in awhile I don't think -- I think if anything the it's lovely -- let me probably get better treatment.
Now I threw it back and well and -- So I never happened only -- way to Randi are you absolving all the cogs in the machine of any responsibility.
Yes and it.
Well how you work Cognos I don't have had a nice Roxy pro -- -- -- Andy you're right though the the the the flight attendants.
I well -- Q why do people hate these people are not -- he signaled -- stewardess -- because -- attacks and -- -- and it feels like -- you know if if the flight crew doesn't enforce federal law who gets into it and then the flight -- to get in trouble but I'm not -- our great you know I'm agreeing with you when -- -- you're right you're right to flight attendants are adhered -- -- but it's like it's just like if you go to McDonald's and your body gives you free French -- it's like.
Are you technically not upholding a law sure of course are used in some late breaking -- whatever is anybody's error -- It's it's irrelevant and stupid severe but you're digging it up -- between a federal law they and given somebody French for idea I -- -- I can't say how sick I haven't been struck about those federal agents -- -- -- -- thanks I gotta we gotta go lastly Greg does when I say I am I have no fear about people making phone calls on airplanes I can't even get reception in my apartment that is truly not worried about and as I try to call you.
