Welcome back to -- out of we've gotten anything wrong so far for that we go to Mike Baker what's -- Mike I think you anything you very very very much.
Go to the halftime scores and -- and obviously thank the -- graphics department for the four pieces of paper and the black and white ink that was used for today's show.
And that's and scores actually Greg leading -- percentage wise with 82% correct statements over the course -- first two blocks.
-- I don't think it's a look at that and not.
It's it's actually been fairly close other than that -- you were at 62%.
And again Tom has ahead of 70% 71% -- Donna 43% -- -- chance that he could.
Come back up predictive indicators.
Anybody have been following the the various Wall Street scandals you know what predictive indicators are.
I think it's important at this point over the course of the past three months to take a look at the other one -- GAAP net it's been closing steadily.
Ever since low numbers are reported January February so well.
We've got about that the defense -- numbers also on the -- -- which is happy but he reported its being whacked rankings.
Our demographics among the eighteen to 25 age group which courses prize there are looking pretty good there's -- summer swamp which is starting to happen and -- I wouldn't put too much credibility into it our numbers for hot -- -- -- way up.
And you know our Odyssey for those people and dedicated or high while watching the show -- still really favored operation.
Let's go to story number one does keep going out on -- -- I play it.
I how I know what I -- despite the clamor for more -- I've got to get to the story.
Because I spent most of the past that two -- taking notes.
Sort of -- one.
-- -- -- -- I first off thank you for everyone for -- delivering such an uplifting moral lesson which apparently from your comments is that.
They smoking pot is cool and you can still be president if you smoke pot.
So it Tom I agree we -- you what's the revelation.
Well I actually learn something from the -- -- I guess I didn't understand this idea I don't know I didn't know what -- guarding was I don't come from a pot smoking.
Culture well anyway -- got guys -- our greatest aggregate seven you're on national TV now.
And you're going to try to hold the line it -- you didn't know what Bogart -- I I -- I didn't that would -- -- I still don't know what it is why why the word Bogart.
Will you smoke weed when you're watching Casablanca that I'm not everyone -- I think guys -- here to explain it and also I'm surprised that there is such that there's such protocol to this you have to get in line I know people line up to smoke Monica billed as it comes it comes from -- -- -- -- in the movies you have a cigarette going in the quarters now like the whole time without ever taking it out.
They remember that -- -- a -- -- Ian and -- was at the piano.
And and it was before you know she walked into the bar and there -- and you know there was some we can.
You don't remember that don't live from I don't know do I already I hadn't kept it in the piano right yeah we -- exactly put it I don't along I'll remember along with a god yeah that that's you al-Qaeda -- -- -- Actually Greg that the point you made a that was really interesting and and now maybe you can expound on it.
What's it world leaders are becoming more like.
Us -- say that like a lot of a lot but the reason why it.
President Obama is so appealing to the mediate is that they probably in there -- little.
Cubby holes and their dorms in the seventies in the sixties were doing the same thing.
So he is just like them not want to say I wasn't.
Like that you would not like no get out -- didn't know what I mean I think it is a good point I mean you can argue that information the flow of information technology.
You know our access to people that normally we wouldn't you don't know about.
Except for occasional headlines.
You know it's all -- this familiarity and so you know something that you know the president does like -- having history of weed smoke and doesn't.
Make any difference to us -- I'd also let it go if it's further contrast him from that evil cold father figure that -- Mitt Romney.
That's the whole point Mitt Romney's new.
Yeah yeah he's a bully he's rich.
Well Bob so cool yeah yeah always the equivocal don't -- a lot of us are -- to -- he's just he's just an -- square yeah -- that there's going back to.
Not don't know -- yeah yeah yeah yeah of course everything is cool.
Yeah Obama is like your dad you know and I can go party we -- -- you go party when your -- he was like Obama yeah he's -- he's your mom's new boyfriend.
That was not my mom's -- -- at different I didn't meet your mother are gay guy act I think getting very literally -- here in the bowels of America's Newsroom a -- Yeah -- you said that today even though you smoke I mean this story actually gave you you know hope.
Because even though you smoke you could you could still be president on our -- but yet it because your check I mean right grant perhaps and -- respect.
Not notably I'd run the table that -- -- but -- -- it but it's a good point but you could it but I think someone else called you -- because even -- you did smoke.
You can't still smoke and then be president right right yeah I'm Heinz.
That's right now I think the death of the what does all this shot that's.
-- -- -- Five minutes I got five minutes left I start over to Andy is the term but load is not a metric measurement.
Is that you generally a metric but well but that's assumes I thought that -- deficit.
Well I -- ask united trance lot of -- are you still have five minutes left when you've already been going for twenty.
We're all high and outside and -- humorous.
-- Hey -- -- what was the last song you pirated.
Patents and probable and -- -- got.
-- pet lover's site that was pretty big news Lime Wire yeah I didn't is that I am ashamed to say and kept.
Yeah I'm sorry.
Greg where if I -- Greg what you stand on this on this whole thing emissaries immunity -- -- conflict today you know -- civil liberties but yet you understand the artist's point I mean I.
I as somebody who asked do you -- gets paid for what he does.
I always have to side with the artist or the -- right.
You get paid out yet you are still -- and turn Marshall.
I got I think you know the thing is everybody.
There's -- you can't get anything free in life and people.
Are living under this idea that like out yet no big deal -- just take it a -- suns who have everything to these not sound create a road he.
Loses a job that's not -- its its and it it's it's a very good point we start talking about counterfeiting.
And I think the entertainment industry has a very difficult time making this point because everyone thinks about what I'm -- -- one song off -- -- who cares.
What they don't understand is it is in you know that the cumulative effect.
You know there and legitimately a lot of these sites are run by people you know sitting in Saint Petersburg or Moscow.
You know -- better doing a variety of other questionable and or illegal activities so it but it's tough and examine industry I think two to make their case it but -- the you would even to two point dealt what are we romanticize this kind of piracy.
And we don't romanticize the other -- up piracy and real.
Hollywood doesn't get around -- -- Hollywood gives you pirates of the Caribbean yes but an empire to the heroes but before that movie you'll see a trailer telling you how evil pirates -- good good excellent points right -- I think I think the I think the actual pirates with the exception of the Somali pirates they dress better and that that that gives them some some -- -- you a clearly are conflicted on this I think.
I'm good -- -- only to the extent that I don't know that it's right to penalize the -- to go after that the company that makes the file sharing program and I think that's -- -- because they're not stealing anything.
I they're doing what's called I'm not -- on the word is what the judges are using.
Like there either.
Facilitating it's a different -- but it's like they're getting them for facilitate inducing back to where the united inducing.
But that that's -- I hate to use this phrase it's as slippery slope I mean not.
There are not -- for.
Interviews that I now watch what I thought I say I -- to -- that makes it I think that's that's how that's -- at epic appoint a Thomas gives us being dated sped date.
Only on slippery slope thing.
No I -- I'm not I'm not quite wild -- I never did that kind of speed dating I worked at -- -- I went out and worked at the old fashioned way I approached the ladies in the bars and I said hey buddy did the Pentagon.
-- -- that window that Alabama is right I got you know I had a lot of conversations -- so -- -- -- -- the fake arm cast.
-- -- -- -- A lot of signatures I don't.
-- -- I felt yes -- pretend that your speed -- you just sat down look in the camera ability or your best opening speed dating line.
Here it as it so fast and humidity here and -- -- -- -- that's the kind amphetamines are a lot.
Government if -- that you think for that.
They had you're absolutely right yeah -- I was fat thank you very much and by the way Greg if we if we impeach Obama should we allow Joseph Biden to stay and become president or does he also go.
I'd like -- happening around because as you know is it barrel -- is really aggressive all around great guy okay well I've.
Fogdog back you -- thanks a lot like you're welcome coming up.
