We're back we're coming out of -- -- anything -- so far for that we go to Tom saloon indeed.
All right let's take a look here but -- -- story story won the pentagon Paul yes you said the days of thinking that a woman is a delicate flower.
Are over you said it was sexist the that say you -- with the women can't do a man's job and you said.
Doing the job these women are doing the job but they're not getting the benefits what benefits are you talking about getting -- They want they they're they're -- some of them aren't eligible for promotions at their male counterparts are eligible for it but they're doing some of the same work.
Because they're not technically recognizes combat officers but some of them.
In that any articles -- here indicating a lawsuit have specifically testified.
Given testimony that they are doing the work of men have been shot -- have been injured in battle but they are not eligible for some of the benefits that men are the benefits being.
Higher grade higher pay it's that perception.
I don't know it seems farfetched to me that there well that's the basis of the suit yes.
I believe I Rand Corp.
study found that the marine.
It is of the Marine Corps found that there was no.
Evidence that female officers -- at least as far as colonel was being hurt by the cardinals hot seat.
We are on being long is it right back again but that you're saying this is currently but that is saying that suit on some levels frivolous and I -- find that hard to believe.
Because it's didn't you know if you if you look at the scene there's some substantial points being made in the suit by the people bring case.
Also I think ambassador Bolton may have been -- beginning to make this point but it no one is mentioning the idea that.
Of course women.
Can't fight in combat but perhaps there is some concern that men's behavior will change.
In the heat of battle is that not a concern on the battlefield.
Well I think it should be I think look it's combat is not like being on the show for example.
Or just walking the streets -- the -- you know it's actually a little bit different it's very complex -- in the most dangerous environment.
Human beings know how to create.
And for virtually all of history in every civilization we know.
Combat has been performed by units of men so when you decide to change that you're interrupting something that's been pretty basic throughout human history.
Yet it is no denying that there is there are emotional decisions that are made in the battlefield these matters soldiers a lot of them are you date they are.
They're hard wired to protect women so they may be making irrational decisions when it -- -- what's the guy gonna do it as a grenade after you -- like I don't I don't see that's I don't think I mean I think when the life real and then he got so locked in having real active jump on the grenade -- quite a well I mean I think people locked yeah what it's like for death I don't think guys are gonna sort of start treaty start treating their fellow soldiers differently because of their gender in the moment and you battle being okay what I guess that's the issue that we have to work out in court than.
And you could I mean you could argue -- good counter -- what Paul saying is that in the heat of battle that's when evolutionary.
Things kind of kicked in in the fighter -- report and that's when you would be most likely.
To act that way to -- to protect -- -- and that's that's just it just goes to show this is.
Highly speculative we don't really have a clue what we're talking about what the impact on our combat forces would be and in any event.
It's not something that should be decided in court if we're gonna change it congress should.
-- I thought I would like to begin talking point -- real men running screens.
And that's the cool thing to point it hasn't been -- -- girls are aching so you know that's.
Paul I know I'm sorry ambassador Bolton you mentioned you were speaking about a -- captain.
I -- -- we have a lot of younger demographic watching -- show late at night I will I want students to know that a wacky -- and it's not an insult -- -- so easy but it's still women's army -- exactly you know a lot of our viewers they refer to -- it -- it means you know not up to the mark.
Actually it's the opposite of -- is it not yes it is the opposite of delta I don't know what -- -- is -- talking.
For -- whether the army corps.
Well for instance one might say that movie was whack and they would say you know they've been -- appreciate it felt that this is the latest conversation I ever heard in my life.
Okay hitting it's not that easy story to.
The Pentagon rollback of -- robots Lauren we -- tell you said you had an appreciation for metal men now -- -- you know.
But in in the genre of metal man what kind of metal man would you appreciate would you say more -- -- -- Robocop woman or terminator or perhaps a C three PO.
What does C three POW I tell my young life -- knowing that and he is coming -- -- hours.
I'll please I don't do Star Wars thing worse is not what this one.
Did not entered into.
An analogy from an -- but not enough for their actions aren't buying into my top three metal yeah.
Yeah I have right -- -- -- I think I I think Tom passionate I think -- actually reveal a lot about himself.
The choices you made there yeah that's what I I see myself as a as a C three PO I don't know how how the world sees me but the Segway.
And every minute.
Get that they and I think that is ambassador Bolton.
You seem to like this idea of the of the or you like.
Robot warfare it seems like how -- this.
A former ambassador to the UN why don't we have the robots in the United Nations what difference would it -- Did you Zuniga and thank -- -- if we can be it's hate gay robot could have done reunited.
-- bill shields she said you welcome our robot overlord yes.
Do you remember actually do you remember I'm thinking and another famous -- about to leave off my list of -- robot from lost in space he was always my favorite.
-- Will Robinson on its agreement that was not his main thing here you look like he could -- two peoples are -- the room.
It was a robbery that's eighties know he was just robot and then I drove I think -- -- -- bill has always struck me as kind of a doctor Smith -- -- -- yeah.
Only days analogy would -- -- if we hadn't been hit back Tamara I'll and I think media as.
The I think Lauren and de Paul were both talking about they need they they seem to think that women we're not as good at controlling robots and space ships and things like that what about Caylee -- ladies and gentlemen.
Yeah yeah -- all right they ship's mechanic on serenity to call and I.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- All right you guys don't you guys I thought he does know these I have -- -- -- -- busy ignoring my son and not loving him.
Look up Caylee -- she's quite a woman must story three she firm for.
She's firmer they knew Paul and Two and a Half Men.
-- investor -- ED have you ever seen to would have meant no I have no intention of ever watching it is -- Maybe -- -- give -- a -- -- you know now I'm here I'm I'm pretty -- -- I guess I got the star and boxer -- I'm ready to go on this thing let's talk about it again -- come back.
And that's about may -- recommend game of thrown scenes and show you be into the competitive the wire.
-- say -- kind of thing I do email on computers boy.
-- Paula I thought I think tells me you're very cynical about this day -- you don't think he's that you column a religious not what about this young man strikes is a religious not the fact that he called he.
-- -- Well -- -- the whole underlying premise or meet with him is that he thinks that America is truly being educated and molded informed emotionally and intellectually.
By his stupid sick come.
He's bought hook line and singer.
His own importance as a star and that's the problem you know what's just because sixteen million people -- -- show doesn't mean it's substantive and I think he thinks it is.
I don't think it's doing any damage having people come home after working a very long day he can barely make ends meet wanna turn their brain off and watch the very thing he defined this field.
What's the difference between a guy that is and it caught up for I guess he gets himself yet full of himself yet in the -- look and Adam friend and -- What's the difference between.
Eight is a celebrity saying you know don't tune into my show it's about you -- I hear celebrities all the time they do commercial endorsements and they -- all I just did it for the money -- -- -- There's some good time you know let him take his millions of dollars and fun reading programs around the country.
Don't sit in there with your shaved head looking like a nut jobs.
Telling me that you're shows terrible.
