About what kind of we've got anything wrong so far -- out what's going -- like I mean he could you have gotten anything Iran -- I have never.
Scene two blocks of television and it had looked so little substance is yeah.
Look I'm not saying it wasn't funny you know I'm just trying to burn the clock -- about right.
We never -- Lawrence.
I don't want this that was just like action series and and the Olympics sax yeah.
Well let me start with the first story we have something we can safeguard our -- our teeth into.
And I'm gonna do a little thing here where I was sort of petty and who who was talking about the Obama interview.
And may be very good point -- incisive point.
That's Obama is more or less blaming the Americans for not agreeing with an American people.
And I sort of bring it to new -- -- run by saying this.
I've -- angles called that false consciousness.
When America and -- proletariat.
Was was so kind of not mystified by the -- of the capitalist class that they.
They didn't I go along with socialism so let's talk about me -- -- -- -- -- Yeah it's not a it's not a question for.
And I'm just -- because there was nothing.
Really go into the differences between socialism and communism and totalitarian we're gonna guess there are confused about that yet yet yet but.
What are we just got to that and why -- I get a penny and -- and head and I'm going to launch a vicious.
Scurrilous attack on U -- that you think people are just assuming it.
Then when they say socialists -- talking about.
Western European style social democracy.
But yeah this is culpable.
Limits on the Internet you confront a lot of pictures of a Barack Obama who alongside Marx and Lenin and I saw these Tea Party is which I attendant.
It happens right.
That and that is a good point and you know I do think that people who have lived through the real marxism leninism do have a right to be offended by that.
Yes but I don't think that's what most people talk about when they say that our country is starting to -- in the socialist direction but I guess why not they say.
Well why don't -- is say is becoming more social democratic or isn't as head to Andy's point isn't Obama just days sort of big government liberal.
I just took.
I think big government liberal but not my thing I'm gonna talk to an imaginary person -- camera does have one.
You know what it is.
You miss I think it helps it's not a big government look liberal agency had big academic and government -- the government academic complex which is different.
I'm looking over.
-- -- -- That a different exhibited -- government liberal because you're each inducing.
The world and academics to it which which is very progressive very very left wing right I didn't see it.
-- -- -- -- -- I'm not sure if at some point I don't understand ready access.
Because it's I mean what we sent from I have spent good you decades trying to perfect this -- -- normally I don't like this.
I had but I figured that if Clinton would like this and Obama listens to me is not a total divisive funny I mean -- There wasn't a problem yes I don't understand why you're attacking this young woman -- retired I'm just I'm -- I didn't I don't know isn't normally because I was socialist front yeah.
I -- it's gonna -- certificate he's changed his -- -- free tickets I thought it.
Man this is getting worse than that no worse I -- I am the what it was just got to some facts that are dead dead dead -- not a view.
You can just yeah that was a lie yet president and Victor.
Whatever the hell -- called.
You know -- by the way you said that sentiment of bubble syndrome.
I looked this up there is a boy in the bubble centrum I know that's all too well the kids that nobody can interact with people.
Because of the giants followed the socialism that I was thinking which you wouldn't that would -- -- -- is what I order if there are glad that.
And that's British it's like put it at Andy was saying with a tram and aluminium.
Bathrooms but percent of whatever mess marshals say.
Then the other area you you said that you had suggested that maybe we could do said the -- FDR style fireside chats every night and -- -- -- about that in that eleven years from 1933 to 1944.
He did thirty of them as it wasn't actually every night was the entrance to they don't wanna own -- the -- but remember that sounds to me thirty minutes every night.
-- -- -- That is true it is that after the Bolshevik revolution there was a brief period where we went under under FDR we used a different calendar could yeah.
Right he can't.
But Michael Michael Kelly can't we say honestly that -- if you -- it it's got nothing to do with the frequency with which President Obama has given speeches or appeared on TV network.
Just the fact -- -- -- yet -- -- I and that and that's fine that's got your job it's nice to see finally do it about your minutes in the.
And on and I'm trying to kill him have you ever and you've got to talk about something of substance.
We don't say we spent a lot a lot of time talking about as a caddie and said the differences between liberalism and socialism.
-- tell -- it was all right they care about that I didn't.
You're gonna bring up what's that Albanian guy you always bring up and the function yeah.
-- He was a Stalinist.
Yes -- -- -- this should not much missed mine and I actually had the next few months I'm going back to England do you work on the history.
It's my arm with Jim Broadbent and I'd love you I love to have you on as an advisor but -- it's -- yeah.
Brought them and I go way back I you know a lot about smarmy.
That's how I don't usually -- Smart -- -- because farms small.
Yeah I thought it was because of my -- -- with Jim -- you actually get would you call broadband service you're part that is true media.
And constitute a well I should be brought it.
I can make a point where I can actually agree if I'm all of you bet you people despite the fact you're on a bit of -- and I'm -- here's the thing that bothers me is that you guys -- this the other night -- with Michael to -- calling people racist Soledad.
Nobody cares about that but they get all I'm upset when you -- the -- I think both are wrong.
But one annoys people on the other one doesn't so that was just -- point now couldn't one -- one and always.
Some people the other one annoys the other people did after the socialist thing have to look more rock and I really don't think so yeah.
I think it's about 55 -- according to the computer yeah yeah.
There are into the computer but again.
I actually -- the computer -- and and when -- -- what went petty and said we're that we are all socialists now little point there is -- that cover story was -- music magazines read by Evan Thomas.
Whose grandfather was Norman Thomas.
And -- as these Socialist Party presidential candidate I think about 45 elections.
Yeah man that's amaze us.
Who pulled out -- amazing nobody and I knew that.
No hyperbole but I think it's fair to say we're all socialists now lasted about as long as we are all Americans now yeah yeah liberal multicultural talent -- -- -- through phases innocent.
-- Athletes cause body image problems.
Let -- kids look up to athletes and they're -- and shape unless they're like John Crocker something I I did I disagree with the word problem this is something that needs to happen more often.
Look around -- a little hard look it's ever complaining about twenty ounce sodas and complaining about people are trying to get -- I do exactly town and the thing is mark.
I think there's a difference because I think there's a legitimate.
Complained that women have about yes that's supermodels and what's -- -- I think that's a lot different from a guy who who looks at an athlete using really good shape.
It be different if every guy wanted to look like Arnold Schwarzenegger in his prime that maybe is a problem we're not talking about that we're talking about that would be a problem being in shape.
That would be a -- a huge problem offending who wanted to look like Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Who is that famously I've referred to by one script British art critic as a brown condoms stuffed with walnuts -- Actually a great line.
Yeah Olympic village I would get up -- Sarah -- in the who's a sailor in the condemns the use of wind surfer admitted to these resorts who.
General olympians -- -- who met under -- as circumstances.
Back end and got married so they're well I guess sometimes happy endings and that's the stats weren't there -- -- sometimes a lot of happy ending.
That's it I -- it after -- thanks for doing the best is good yeah.
-- me you know it's.
