Let's find out if we get into the ground so -- that we're -- TVs and alienated how you doing good how do we can Greg.
Not fall -- it.
-- -- -- -- I was legitimately asking and we can when I don't know weren't rude like you all right it was a good I'm not rude like you had a nice time now I don't care I care that happen.
-- that I mean guys.
Top college grads be jobless first of all the video the frog sitting -- person -- freaks me out.
Yeah it does I don't want to see again I liked about he's what you can -- the hammering nails I'll yeah.
Actually some commentators I'm a YouTube page -- that's what it was but then I think that that was.
-- to -- the idea that everybody's to go to college is a lie.
And sure and I toll -- on everyone's gonna college but I've also noticed it's usually a bunch of college grads sitting around saying not everybody -- -- -- Well I was not a success in college to put it mildly I never should've gone until -- -- maybe I should yes look I should have gone I should have gone.
Immediately to a newsroom and you know take half the money and just you know my parents who supported me for you know ten -- here that would warrant I'd -- I probably wouldn't be.
I don't know what I would be -- that's -- -- I am now.
What -- -- you couldn't be any more successful and you are probably could I could have more servants that I do unplug sensitive point -- Can you brought up the fact that it would have meant a lot -- your parents if you had gone to college.
And -- -- Tucker's point about not -- -- -- -- a college isn't that a lot of the reason why people go to college because their parents want it for them.
I was very close.
To having to go just just for that you win your division -- school my mom went -- our school and they really big saved by a whole lot of childhood for me to be able to go.
That can be big and you just let them to have a good -- -- -- finally they finally came around that they were happy.
For my success but you know it really took a level we're gonna be set but lost the war -- Beatles finally putting.
Round ball but they -- where they've finally impressed colder months now.
Thai ambassador you said the real problem today is -- colleges are filled with dope smoking professors and your generation it.
I say I and we give college professors a hard time in the shell and sometimes justifiably but I had -- really good professors -- college.
Well there occasionally very good professors it's it's really the that that the spectrum as a whole -- -- -- turning out people who don't get the classical education don't get the job training they just spend four years there and and that's at a cost to society that he can't even Catholics.
The main problem is sociology professor -- I was gonna say English literature professors -- maybe political scientist but you know everybody has their favorite -- our guys are walking professor is pretty good.
Rest in -- yeah.
I'm a little wonder -- I'm really lot of turnover in that position probably to turn.
Greg you said part of the problem is the majors -- colleges are offering that they live in a bubble.
Again true but here's the thing everyone is assuming that the point of going to college is to get a job and I'm not exactly sure that -- is the point or at least is the whole point.
That's their neck -- back to what Tucker were saying also.
I don't think it's a waste of time to go to copy it if you accepted the idea going to college is to gain knowledge that it's it's not a waste of time you're not going to a vocational school but -- not gaining knowledge you are using an ideology.
Not if you take a -- -- and you find the right professor you can you can learn a lot but you're young and dumb and full of whatever and he would happen.
Get to college and that you just you get professors with an ideology you -- -- to get good grades means that all that ideology.
Yeah I just don't and I can I think we overblown that went with a really sometimes it won't be getting with -- report it's over between us.
The main problem -- -- is the staggering amount of -- you leave college with yes that's that's the main problem.
Alcoholic -- history.
What we're Brothers training program -- picked up the whole does -- tell us what you get mentioning a name hi how would we went part of it would British what do you have.
And -- it alters his what are you all of them after that you owe them service I don't believe they tell you.
That they will decide which of the forty people that want to bring into the circus.
And then -- will offer you contract.
And then you could except for them.
Really doubt at -- book -- decision yourself.
I went to -- of the circus wasn't for me -- -- there was a little more pressure put on me but not rejected a sense of bears over here.
At an event.
As a result and yeah it's terrible it's the it -- think -- -- get the Forbes columnist as climate changed and I should be held accountable.
I -- -- you don't know why we're assuming that climate -- -- all bad and I suppose that does depend on what the consequences for not to be if it's real with a smile maybe you're right but on the other hand did you see the day after tomorrow that documentary.
No I didn't.
That was like an eighty's -- chilling a chilling documentary.
When you have to run away from mice the I don't think Dennis Quaid narrated it or something I don't know illicit nuclear holocaust.
One now I watched it it -- wind and it's like the beginning of the world it's often.
-- Good about -- I don't think in that.
Story and I don't think any of you actually addressed the premise of Steve's wakes Forbes column should people who knowingly provide false information was spread -- -- should be held accountable for their -- yes.
The fact that that is what he's saying is people who disagree with them.
Are supplying false information texts that's -- -- thing.
Okay not not really but not -- -- -- you disagree with me.
Then your line.
Now he actually it did you read his second in his second column.
That the global warming is a farce then and people the people that knew that it was and knowingly missed spread false -- than they should be held accountable.
-- -- -- -- The president go to Iran to talk about occupy a -- said Iran is run by terrorist regimes they think the professors would think twice about going there.
And yet after any moms after they visited an imam said that the -- Movement is against zionism.
One of the professors said that she found that claim quite disturbing and she couldn't believe that they would use their movement as a -- like that.
What what -- surprise and and and and these -- the people that -- come back and we'll tell us that this regime is somebody you can deal with media you know they've solved or other problems is that Ahmadinejad said when he was here a couple years ago they have no homosexuality problem that -- run they've taken care of that and he did -- -- that that's the kind of society can get things done Iran you know unlike us man in my little homosexual is never problem.
The solution I don't go to Iran -- an opportunity now go to Iraq.
Readily availability MOS in -- next.
That was kind of way.
Regarding our captured drone on Monday Defense Secretary Panetta -- -- Iran is lying about reverse engineering it.
And said quote based on my experience I would seriously question their ability to do what they stated that.
Also ambassador if you've cracked in other countries encryption you're not gonna tell them.
You know in this case I think what -- is trying to do is -- a very serious problem for the United States and even if the Iranians can't crack at the Russians and the Chinese would be happy to do it -- them and are working right away -- you can count on -- -- -- but if you crack somebody's encryption to the stupidest thing you can do -- let them know.
Well I think they the real -- is not only what they got out of that -- but were they able to tap back into the computer systems that drone was was communicating -- I don't know the answer that I hope not but that would be even worse now.
I think we should send -- -- -- with really bad technology.
And false information yes exactly and maybe hey maybe that's what we -- it yet you put a maple leaf like this on -- Indiana president blows up we could send you -- -- Occupy Wall Street protest comes into the.
Lastly on this Starbucks the bug extracting pen you said New York City water has little shrimp in it and that's actually true they're little -- is called -- pods.
-- -- -- -- I wasn't sure about that -- -- politically correct does this morning.
New York must know how what do you think I thought you were joking and I looked it up -- agenda you're actually right you didn't think I was -- you thought it was ball now.
Did you I think tiger making -- German authorities reported here for the bagels taste so good at I could also means that your -- you wanna talk -- -- right.
Not already know -- losing sleep over that yeah capital to you and me both brother I don't hidden secrets of bothers me.
Now I will never take another glass of New York City tap water.
Got to go -- thank god.
