In fact let's find out if we gotta be wrong so far and not -- for -- so we had a team using any Levy any.
But I didn't didn't mean interrupt.
It's a little flushed.
-- don't mind to it.
When we don't but perhaps I'm a little thing you can handle the halftime -- yes -- goodness.
Will Smith and taxes.
Data you've got into the case of celebrity saying yes I would pay more taxes but then having to backtrack where national figures put in front of them.
I don't think that's entirely fair why can't he -- position be that he's willing to pay more taxes and he pays now but not willing to pay 75%.
-- right that he that -- you probably pay is now 45 to 50%.
And don't just automatically you and why is it okay for them to suspect -- -- pay more taxes.
Well maybe maybe be willing to pay 51% -- -- -- It doesn't matter to him when you make a hundred million a year Andy that's the hypocrisy hey Andy yeah thanks yeah patriotic millionaires are jerks because they're they're saying it's okay because they are so wealthy it doesn't matter -- -- between a 100000000 and fifty billion is nothing.
Everyone knows you can't support Obama be patriotic.
Not political big to me out and -- -- -- yuck and here for yeah.
Greg what you said that's a good point down but Greg what you said makes no sense because Will Smith obviously does make -- difference -- him at 75%.
Yeah he's greedy he's very greedy and -- I -- bill makes a point about the patriotic millionaires they call themselves patriotic millionaires if you disagree with him you're not patriotic.
-- put your thing about wolf you know Hillary Kyl the Republican William green cop he was -- -- was ansari was an Miami cop he was a Marine -- pilot.
With the New York cop who got recruited into a top secret non governmental agency didn't he save the planet of more than one occasion -- -- a pass on this record it started.
I that's that's the -- insists.
He was the last man on earth as I yeah.
Every tax burden he had movement -- the taxes under the sun and yeah.
Although -- -- much -- an income you didn't.
On the Chuck Schumer -- Greg you said another taxis Chuck Schumer and another senator who's not Chuck Schumer -- announced or -- yes Saudi Pennsylvania's Bob Casey top fantastic legal case monster.
Just a barrel laps yet -- -- the worst part of this was the way Schumer read the defending America line I don't think that's fair I think whoever wrote this.
-- speech should be absolutely ashamed that we.
He's defending America his social network is about to get smaller -- -- Exactly it's horrible but don't you think former senator Fred Thompson could have read the hell -- -- I have I -- I think anyone could have read that better.
But it's still it's gone well -- -- -- right -- line like that for your -- -- at least practice -- a forehand it's it was in Mario but volley -- speeches for -- that's absolutely legs.
-- -- but -- can -- -- askew a question about this job they did add that FaceBook guy ever is trying to get out of -- what sixty.
Some odd million dollars that's not the percentage of that's like not it -- and a tax rate it was a difference in tax tax Asian.
So he wasn't trying to escape a 10% tax rate.
Following it now.
-- -- withstood it EEE was standing to make three billion right and you try to get away from standings this from -- -- thousand dollars which seems like not a lot.
Italians in the senate does seem like a lot out of three billion is my point.
So we must be reading this wrong it's got to be more.
That EMI group on coupon to get out of -- southeast is it time you stood to save 67200.
Million by leading -- that doesn't mean it's a season under would be estate -- -- -- Why can't he just really like so -- -- -- -- -- Boris thank you.
-- -- -- -- living there since like 2000 and Eliza yeah where he hates people who chew gum so you know I think there's I think he really means it.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Hey -- -- that's part about the story what's a neglected to mention is the amazing wit me they think they reverse engineered the -- -- him they needed to use.
-- -- But they'll take action was an Akron and alas yes it was I can't remember what -- -- I but I think Greg's going what are they getting reverse engineered that -- to make they wanted the -- -- to be patriots are the yeah.
Right -- writing.
It's supposed to have -- us via happy miracle when that happened.
But I better that was about it we're sure -- -- -- also want to -- be retroactive.
And I'm sure that -- I don't I don't really understand.
Any of this.
-- -- I was to do part of part of education.
Greg you said the Florida Department of Education that you said yes they have won so it was a cheap shot she apologized that later.
Thought -- -- -- say they've made it easier to pass a state writing exam after 70% of fourth graders found.
Not quite first of -- it's the Florida state board of education is doing it not the Department of Education to separate things.
And this gets a coming -- said Nikki said it's not the kids who found the test -- the teachers here for the state boards actually doing.
It's changing the way it grades schools not the way it grade students they -- -- based on a percentage of kids who pass the exam.
So what they're doing is they're lowering.
Big necessary -- to pass from a 42 -- three.
In order so that more schools won't fail.
So this has that they actually it's not in our student to protecting the schools which is.
-- -- worse yeah I know I I do think that this.
Of this hole thing is -- is a great case for school choice.
Yeah parents should be able to pull their kids at schools that are on these guns behind I -- -- -- kids out of school all the time he's got so angry over this.
So you're real patriots -- you I am a patriot that's not an -- -- -- no.
Danny -- that you can't -- eleven year old don't know what camels are I can't believe eleven year old her fourth grade.
Long time ago but yeah.
I believe 9 o'clock -- What great.
Again I don't don't you think Gavin the whole the whole uproar over the camel thing it's raging Obama -- It is.
That's really what's going on here -- these kids are patriotic enough to not -- attention the middle yes.
And they're being ridiculed for that and we take away -- Joseph Camel Cigarettes and an eagle can't get Middle East as bad.
Joseph camel's back I'm not pay attention to camels and then we don't know what.
Animals don't fix -- it's a double standard.
Reverend Wright Greg you said the New York Times reported that some Republican strategists are working monologue the secret plan to play up Obama's race and his connections to Jeremiah Wright is not in the times about a plan to play -- problem -- race.
I didn't write that well you read it yeah well who -- it you know it's not like -- My dermatologist probably can.
-- -- and I agree it's not -- all out of bounds to bring up Reverend Wright and I mostly agree that the GOP shouldn't and they should focus on Obama's record.
But nick you brought up that John McCain didn't do the Reverend Wright stuff for years as evidence for years ago as evidence that stupid to do it on -- -- McCain lost.
You know -- sure.
You got me there but he lost with integrity -- it's.
-- -- which which is what political parties what to do yeah you know I think you know he's one of the reasons McCain losses because he was asleep like 90% of the time.
I don't think that's -- I think that's a cheap shot at his age.
You know probably.
There was an upside to him losing -- you.
And whatever happens can we would add that Megan McCain in the White House -- and believe me waiting to hurt tweeting from the White House did not get.
What's up doll -- want to uncover what brands.
Lincoln bedroom rocks.
Elizabeth Warren does my impression however that -- was.
-- your point on this story that the head of the Cherokee Nation is 132 Cherokee is is pointless yet because reported the story that Warren's been claiming that she's not 132 Turkey but.
It increasingly seems like that's not true.
I didn't want to prove that she's not mean.
I -- -- there there's they don't have a lot of -- -- -- -- no -- -- she's not from Venus either but she did I think she would be used to hear from Venus you've got to show summing it but who are from -- part of the argument was that she used to get hacked and I painted.
It's the guy that -- really easy to get anything -- she.
Okay but at least he really is 132 chair she could very well -- -- this is it but yeah glad I'm Massachusetts taxpayers and help.
He added that it.
-- -- goes goes to character yeah.
That wasn't what she believes you want us I think I believe I think I'm bad now -- -- you -- -- -- -- that's entirely possible it may be that he she comes from a family of -- but she herself I'm a liar and I don't believe that Scots actually brown I didn't really look at the back.
On that note -- -- -- -- --
