Drug testing is a -- don't you think -- in some way this puts more pressure on kids.
The kids that aren't doing drugs because then when they get tested negative everybody's gonna find out that they've been lying about doing drugs in the no longer cool with the cool kids.
No I don't think that's actually.
Player I thought it was a very differently to backs it -- I think it's gonna make them all ostracize bad it's about I think that image and not.
Don't you think -- conditioning kids to -- in some way kind of feel what it's like to become criminals.
Sort of getting this testing early on is a little sort of in over our heads for kids that this young age so little adult and you think.
That -- crime not young and that is as -- funny how the Internet and -- -- -- Well that's that might be true I mean there is a study at Columbia did that finds a 75% of all high school students who used.
Either legal or illicit drugs.
As far back as seventh grade and 20% of those adolescents now are addicted so I do think that this is a real problem I mean bill.
Kids it's not -- I'm just gonna ask you kids and after school activities.
Like -- or four H club -- they really the ones that we need to be.
Checking out on this or should it be the kids that don't have an afterschool activities are the ones that the real problem -- we.
That was my point I mean the ones who don't have the after school activities and might be joined now a little too much twinkies and bad cartoon time to get my meaning -- international Connolly.
They will be deterred.
From may be doing something else maybe broadening horizons because the prospect of a drug test will prevent the message.
Right and -- again if the parents responsibility to deal with us and not the state absolutely not I think the state should be involved and I.
I got into the point -- where and taking them away from the parents if the parents aren't feeding them properly.
Or are -- them in the latest guard you know fashionable clothing or buying Smartphones.
It takes a village -- With the nine billion myself he gets if I have a -- gets a full hardy breakfast and a year in test every day before you leave the house and by the way bill thanks for the drugs you sell them they've been awesome.
Had an outcome I'm ready Jonathan Aiken they're moving -- to the conservatives vs the liberals.
-- -- what are you a little sort of insulted by this that we need to study to tell us that we should all respect each other's.
Beliefs and at the core of it that we're all decent people just don't agree it's isn't this something we were talking we're five by mr.
Rogers to rid of the point behind all these sites -- tell -- crap we are doing now right.
-- and -- always the money right I mean.
Bill I mean don't did wasn't there a guy -- have scientists a couple thousand years ago I think his name is Jesus who -- the same thing.
I'm not aware of this society.
Thank you if there was a guy -- -- IA protest him being in the painting called this crisis.
Moving on to (%expletive) Christ speaking of his -- Imagine.
The word of artisan small.
Plastic crucifix submerged in -- Of the art of its its okay look at what's registered service and why is it everybody on the panel automatically thinks that this is a terrible thing just because you're -- -- in -- -- you look into.
The artist wants to try to stay with this piece was what let me.
I don't know just I really don't know I'm not gonna speak for the guy but why why come -- so close minded that coach -- so it's bad.
It's kind of lovely photograph actually if you look at and yet it was as colors -- composition it is.
What color well all of -- that they do what Britain given a chance that's what I and it all curator of fine arts aren't you didn't -- having an open mind and just say no everything is good if you now.
Everything is good what I'm saying is you just you can you hear a trigger word and you shut down on it.
And that sort of to -- is problematic on some I don't shut down and I just think it's stupid -- don't even -- what it represents I don't care what her present I think it's stupid now aren't okay.
Knew that I look I have another -- -- you know -- -- -- you have to think -- comedy CD it's funny I'll listen.
And you know I'm not gonna laugh just isn't supposed to be funny I recorded it in Nevada you're now have -- -- ahead and he.
Sounds like it.
There's such a cure I really hate you so much.
I didn't look I think that at the end of the day people sort of had a kind of predispose notion of what they like and don't like and maybe we'd be better off if we sort of approach things a little bit of an open mind don't you think -- and now not at all.
At the beginning of the night anyway.
-- at the end of the day should be -- position.

On the floor in there's never -- anything that you there's never meant anything that you've seen initially that you didn't like but then after getting deeper into her realize it's not so bad I'm not saying this is good I don't know about another I think -- on the list of things that hasn't gotten any better.
Not a great thing you haven't been in my house on a Saturday but I -- -- I don't call me get this important point it's it's the import imported I don't think it's stupid someone else may not someone else may look at that and say this is amazing art.
OK that's fine go ahead and do that I have a right to say I think it's given other people have a right to say this is highly offensive other people have the right to say it will know this is really intriguing I write this.
The problem the problem is it.
They hypocrisy when our government.
Called out things were being offensive to some religions but doesn't call up things for being offensive to other religion over the ramifications of the Muslim film -- much greater so that's how -- actually get a hecklers veto it would be threatened violence if Christians threatened violence over (%expletive) Christ then.

No I didn't think that I knew I guess you are -- I don't think it's black and right I do think that you sort of look at the ramifications of the thing you're complaining about if they're minor ramifications that are upsetting us a group of people in New York City.
First is causing worldwide terror you comment found one in you go about your business as president I think that's a -- giving -- hecklers veto to people who who act like children.
Now okay well -- -- just disagree then you're wrong because on the imprisonment -- every time and it never marriage isn't this the slippery slope on the Travolta thing I mean if these privacy laws go into effect.
