We're back let's find out if we got a good run so popular that we go to TDs anti -- -- take -- or.
To -- -- guesses didn't actually think that excellent trip.
Got that -- taking care I'll get good.
Everything if we won't come back down an app you been told that I had and I just walked home from the woods.
Love that Rollins I -- for the -- -- -- the stop Terry you said what Romney said it's sort of Q and that he should own it I do think he's mostly owning it isn't.
I did that -- if you would take you didn't even advice after the fat.
Blunt truth -- -- -- -- I respect that answer I think more than any answer I've ever gotten on the show.
And he did watch it.
Did you go to anyway.
You'll be happy to know he mostly is completely -- -- -- -- relaxed you won't rest easy tonight a congress that bothers me -- -- out.
You -- what -- go it.
Did he muscle -- yes I think about it and that -- -- it phoning it you know.
He should win.
These writings on it put it that way.
He built it and I had a whole nation and -- -- delaying payments and we'll eventually onus should at least like you've gone up.
America President Obama doesn't own anything he just occupies it.
Knowing that it doesn't exactly.
Up at 80% as I alluded knowing me -- -- nonsense.
Jimmy you said what Romney you consider what Romney said to be a hate facts I mean it's true but you're not allowed to say it right.
Can -- get a couple more -- facts yes please -- it.
A lot of people who don't pay -- -- to do so because of policies or tax breaks that Republicans favor.
First you got the nonworking elderly you don't pay taxes on the Social Security something Republicans favor that's 22% of the people who don't pay income tax but -- but any guess that's.
Writes hi I agree they should pay taxes on something that is there -- -- I agree I don't think tax drag I I agree.
I think you obviously don't I want you more home planet and my my anyway my point is look.
In addition to that one of the biggest reasons -- -- -- don't pay income tax because that child tax credit credit that was originally championed by Republicans and was increased in 2001 and 2003 by President Bush.
Another thing that -- people the tax rolls tax breaks in 2004 President Bush said quote.
Nearly five million taxpayers will be off the rolls as a result of the tax relief this year.
He said this while urging congress to make the tax cuts permanent not -- a disparagement of those five million people.
He's a socialist.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I'm like but did you realize what Romney was talking about was not that what appeared but the problem is Greg -- only only 8% of households pay no federal taxes 60% of that 47% who don't pay income tax.
They do pay payroll taxes they pay Social Security taxes they pay Medicare taxes they just don't make enough money to pay income tax.
There's a difference between people.
Who don't pay income tax and people who want to live off the government and that's the that's where I think conservatives need to be careful he did not demagogue the people.
Who don't pay income tax because they're not making a lot of money and there's there's those people then -- the -- -- you just want free.
And that's two separate classes of people.
And no need to swear.
I think there was actual thought -- house.
I think what Romney was saying he was definitely not acknowledging a few working class people that vote Republican because they see themselves -- eventually being -- But I think he was talking about -- all of them.
-- who don't -- -- attacks who feel like it then still entitled to more -- they shouldn't be making off and that's that's sort of indistinguishable.
Percentage of the lowly somewhat inclined.
But yeah I just I think the majority of people who don't pay taxes don't pay taxes because they're not making a lot of money I think they would rather make more money as a tax.
-- but what's the message -- stats -- that is that know.
Can't we just had a really it was a dumb comment I think that's a nod to her.
And I don't know if we agree on that -- -- It's just all I wanted to let Pete I think what he was trying to -- War and lambasting of the mainstream media's reporting on I don't believe I mean I always I just said either one of us now I'm talking about.
Due to gain yeah I was all right.
-- is another big -- you pointed out correctly that Romney wasn't saying that as president even write off those people just that he was writing off their votes I think there has been some people are trying to say he was just saying.
I don't care about those people yes I think you're right there.
Think he is wrong when he went in thinking that those don't all of that 47% not gonna vote for him what about.
There's got to be it's at least some of those if not a sizable amount of them -- -- social conservatives who were pro life.
Who have other issues that they would never vote for a Democrat regardless of taxes because you know that's just not their thing I -- I I think yeah.
Was the idea that he should just be writing off those people.
Right and you can't read -- -- I think what you're saying here is that -- -- it's not as sophisticated -- contemporary conservatives and libertarians and articulating.
What we believed to be any -- to entitlement and so when he does -- he comes off as somewhat clumsy because he's not as gifted as you are.
In describing the issues at today used -- big issue today is that President Obama which is to expand government and government programs so they're more people on the -- who will then vote for him that's and is trying to say -- -- is not as Lowry -- as articulate as busy as you are at this eighty and for that I.
Well I accept your apology.
Well played sir yeah.
Yeah really -- I also commits.
You -- think I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't know.
That the American working class even the poorest who are ten to vote Republican -- us a unique Dominican thing debt you don't get that -- -- and you don't get that -- The put you tend to vote right away because they tend to think -- -- -- -- Exactly and that -- but again that's what makes it comic even sort of weirder that he's that he's saying he's writing off these people many of whom will probably vote Republican.
-- -- -- Are there any truth Bob -- -- I wanted to you have to people -- Keith Olbermann talking about this they didn't.
I'm not going to Africa that was on media IE he's -- themselves with camera he doesn't -- -- these -- about some sort of six link.
To rule needs funding and then he just breaks that instead it's not that I heard after the show after which he fired his cameramen.
Innocence of Muslims -- -- our -- countries giving up our first amendment rights.
No not yet but I -- but you can sort of see that there's no doubt we question here is not a Western Europe has lost its soul a long time ago while telling you yes and I think the fact that we if we even start going down that way.
It's not a good road to go on now I agree there yet yet.
Don't people even -- an Arab countries are saying stuff like Terry Jones we need to -- him no I don't know you don't need to band and what an idiot that you -- -- -- died they're two they're.
People in this country announcing believe we should allow it hecklers veto would if I -- it and yet yet but please -- -- not without that road no absolutely yeah yeah.
Greg you have you asked can't we just say we don't care if you don't like us.
We -- but apparently we won't.
I know that's that's the thing I've been saying for many years nearly Renault and he's been falling on deaf ears it and I don't mean that literally.
Let's just put the I'm -- -- -- -- gave a speech for at a school for the deaf now I didn't I was saying that if people aren't listening.
Who can I think that's what I'm mad and -- I didn't mean to offend deaf people will -- but people have been turning a blind eye to the things have been saying -- not literally not literally.
-- My offense ears deaf or people -- something that I've been thinking about for a long you know it's definitely my comedy jam -- and luckily incumbency and.
I Jimmie brought up that the military motto kill them all let god sort of now.
Ironically in this case you know -- quote does have a religious origin.
No I didn't know about -- -- would you not Terry you know this.
No I don't know it's kind of one of those Matos from -- into the infantry were you refused -- about the -- is anyway hopefully it would -- with a guy I'm Catholic and Catholic avid during the -- -- interstate where they're going after the Pitt stars.
I would ask how how that troops were supposed to recognize the guitars from the Catholics and he said kill them all god will know his own.
And that got updated -- -- -- -- but how did you and I I don't I think we go ahead and say why should we be able crews say yeah that's I have to rise to let's say that's a fact that.
School lunch boycott PAB thank you for bringing up the fact that kids are allowed to bring their own.
Some lunges but I think you should school watch other down 70%.
Know what it says that would just that would just one -- with the boycott day right.
Yet but not not across the board just that one day.
Gotten out that is what I meant I -- that and say yeah.
But I'm just saying that continues a lot of these people are saying I'm going to have to continue to yet -- -- -- yet and if that happens then school district might have to respond by.
You getting rid -- -- stupid.
Maximum calories it actually I think it is ridiculous to make that clear yet I'm just saying you have another option.
Not affluent side Terry that's what the hell happened -- America while you were gone for -- don't go away.
Although I may have to again so you're protecting your welcome that's that you're here to protect -- meanwhile you go away and this.
Stuff happens you know actually not doing your job -- but it really -- One student Terri does say that that knew he says the new federal guidelines have made the lunches quote worst case being smaller size and higher priced.
Just like the federal government is away.
There is whether whether -- wherever there's an activity.
The public can never exceed the private.
And you can look at public and private bathrooms you can look at private parts public parks anything.
Did you make that much more -- for these -- hit.
But they're basically what I did that to something simple and complicated and yet we're definitely yes.
Bad bumper sticker.
I let's just let me think I -- public gets above private it crops so that she.
That's a fact -- -- what you said he couldn't.
And tore the bumper sticker -- -- the coexist bumper stickers and I would destroy every car that got them.
Don't you I think I'm gonna start right -- I won't we're not a TVs and worry about it but it -- funny looking and he has.
