Back let's find out if -- got -- -- soap opera ever gonna TV's Danny mediating I didn't get married Burt I'm doing pretty good that's excellent.
I'll vomiting and you for gay marriage judge Greg as John alluded to that was fox news's own Ed Henry sticking -- to -- -- I did not recognize him from the side view yes exactly.
I think that was that was a legitimate response I'll track you are reading something into that should be read into -- the -- reviewed now just reading something into my react I was thinking -- I -- -- -- definitely.
Exactly right now you're thinking that's now which I'm thinking -- about -- I can think -- -- -- -- you said you can't believe that what Vice President Biden said on Sunday.
-- -- -- -- -- I don't agree and I think the proof of that is that the administration wasn't like they've they were not ready to deal with the fallout I think it Biden had been sent out to say that.
-- would have handle that press conference a lot better.
Could -- but -- this -- makes a lot of well prepared gaffes.
He does he get also I guess referred Mitt Romney is president Romney and Obama as President Clinton -- -- Meet the Press interview.
That's fantastic food that's why he's grades and how vice president -- that is the president and vice president.
I'll -- said you think people are dying to hear you said kind of sarcastically you that you think people are dying -- -- Australians opinion on American political issues for the Wake Forest.
Keep in mind around here we're big fans of -- -- I think I.
I guess I had my -- I'm -- My uncle got -- Our Gavin you -- you don't understand why this gay marriage issue keeps taking over elections that gave -- 1% of the population I think it's two to 4%.
Although interestingly -- Gallup poll done a year ago found that US adults estimated that 25% of Americans are gay or lesbian.
Yeah well I guess that's to the TV shows yeah and big cities and in New York it's -- how deeply bump into but take off I.
I think I it's more like one but let's say it's too.
And then you take that percent how many of them really wanna get married like have a big stick to say -- -- a straight people to why it's a thing -- I don't Gavin I don't think I don't know.
I -- I think whatever the percentages I don't think that necessarily how you judge the importance of an issue.
I suspect from what Americans gay marriage is not an -- -- if I don't care one way or the other.
But I'd I don't that you can just look at any issue not just this -- and say -- this only affects.
2% of population so it's not important I think you know but it -- on the -- it's like the -- slaughtering the Armenians and that's not getting -- -- -- entire national elections.
-- run on the genocide of Armenians by the Turks it just seems like.
A tiny group that seems to be dominating this entire debate.
And it happened last election to we.
-- want children are not talking about the Turks and yeah.
We can it would be nice yes I'm real sensible certain.
Bill you keep comparing President Obama to Romney on this but I don't apparent problems.
They're completely different that you need to compare them you're you're kicking up you -- you don't I don't quite yet -- -- I didn't know it went.
It's it can but don't I was -- I don't I don't think that's the issue I know.
And -- would prefer is evolution not be televised.
But when when you coming off base and you want on a promise of not being a typical politician and you act like one I think he should be called out on it all the live long day.
Not if you repeal don't ask them.
Well way to say even jealous report Don't Ask Don't Tell was a liberal policy remembered that -- have a -- what I did it is -- period so this -- -- that they just didn't tell and then you're allowed I don't they would get -- -- if they what is the incident in the video were Steelers is that the patients a way to make easy he repealed you can't.
If I suspect that's not fair to -- at the -- I know with the policy was -- -- under Clinton was a compromise policy yeah now.
So what does that -- but it was it was it was meant to be stepped border step forward which later what people perceive is a mistake.
However I want to go back to the fact that in about ten minutes you're gonna -- that.
The evolution will not be televised line I treated it like when and what not.
The latest it was -- simple thank you what did you think -- for the show.
What if I tweeted after -- show it would still be on Twitter before the show aired.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- What happened to me tweets I don't know but not a -- Mikey.
Thirteen when I get my hands on it.
Massachusetts stands -- out Greg you're from Massachusetts as an actual state it's a commonwealth yes that was a trek okay.
Actually no difference whatsoever -- into them.
Yes and then one requires about three times as long to write it fair to say it that's if that's why I took it out of -- script I'll -- But I -- it was a couple of all right.
But John are you and I suspect you are you shocked at liberals are using the course of power of the states try to run people run people's lives they'll.
Really totally expect -- this never happens no you're exactly right never have.
That's and consequently not cut and cut.
Bill I believe Lipitor -- what are the avengers.
-- -- not and small can't really just didn't spoiler than Barack Obama white -- and nobody went to high school with and they also nobody called in case maker.
Do you really speak with a woman -- -- -- -- did they also they called it can't appear.
Different school the kids that want to design certainly cases rather then take my parents often -- that you're -- -- -- -- Not Greg you said fat kid always becomes to any adults it's a fact it -- -- source.
-- source any Glamour Magazine or any celebrity interview the gorgeous celebrity goes I was a back.
Kid once every single one just I was tea when he caught I was make all of our awkward I was on the teenager -- -- the into the that you look weak yes and yeah.
Glad you understand Greg and to this day people would not say they they want a guy -- just makes them laugh yes exactly and that cannot cannot tell if nothing else matters.
And that it's not speaking of which sex addiction is not a thing which is too bad because what I learned I think Greg we agree on this will we both aren't the movie shame -- that sex addiction involves having sex with a lot of really attractive people that was the problem with the movie is that the that the movie was trying to portray sex addiction that's a problem but actually watching that you're seeing the actor has sex with all these -- women particularly it's not really a problem in that -- was played by.
Are just four of nine here it and I could go -- -- -- an ad for sex addiction yet.
Understanding herself yet to Seattle dealt with so much glamour yes that's how much sadness -- -- a prominent movie by the way I.
I'm assuming people talked about this is that they either ripped off or stole that -- and a score -- the thin red line.
Yeah we -- you know it's funny in the Green -- we spent an hour discussed and that yes and yes it was amazing I don't think -- -- people talking about it.
You mean more than you.
Exactly more than -- -- yet here.
I Johnny said you know understand -- the big deal that sex addiction hasn't been in the past an official psychiatric disorder who's complaining and saying they wanted to be.
I think the idea that psychiatrists were debating whether to add it to the new addition of the DSM and now they decided to table it pending for others.
Glad to be updated thank you I don't think he meant that -- Ed I sense some sarcasm yes now vicious are.
I would say basis while there's an elbow 11 might there.
When I Gavin do you not think alcoholism is a disease I'm just curious I can tell I know I do not I was being sarcastic about both.
Don't -- I don't think drug addiction or alcoholism is a disease now.
Even though they found that people are genetically predisposed to be it.
Yeah I'm genetically predisposed to alcoholism but I managed to hold -- back a little bit.
-- -- -- You would imagine very well during the commercial break and I actually managed all I care.
That's we all know to be true on the -- right -- drugs go I -- -- -- needs you can just help not -- would you review.
Well in Iran -- -- entirely possible that.
First grader suspended for sexual harassment.
Gavin you may report on this but by calling it sexual harassment the school -- actually making it sexual -- and it wasn't.
But I can we also add the parents in here on the list of people not acquitting themselves well the kid was got in trouble for doing the exact same thing.
Before this but it takes till after the second time with a mom says I guess I should tell him.
That he you know what this really mean so he doesn't say it again.
Yeah -- but I mean I got kids and I've said things like the next person that says but is getting a ten minute timeout an unprecedented timeout and then they just go.
They just they had they have -- yes now that's.
Out -- but the thing.
I -- tropic thunder was a movie where they go you never go full retard in the movie and it was making fun of an idiot that would say something like that.
But all these activists got involved and they had protest and they had kids would downs out there protest thing.
And his kids and obviously been told this movie cause -- retard -- design so -- joked that wasn't meant to be cruel.
Was now cruel and they -- -- they put this thing in the kid's head and they keep doing it.
What about sexual harassment at a bake sale you.
You gotta be identity for tomorrow off and yes talk about -- exploding -- could have gotten.
Very nice -- and contestants that way yeah.
