Back to find out if you've gotten anything wrong so far let's go to -- -- he Levys found sharp.
I've -- -- think Tom used the word erstwhile twice in the first three minutes of the show you know what's.
I think I saw erstwhile in the notes and then they it was on my mind and I didn't wanna -- so called the end designer -- -- real comedian.
Not cool while saint erstwhile doesn't -- that any better yet I was kind of roasting myself we do that comedians -- -- and you -- get a so called upon.
That's -- if I'm gonna stick with that -- -- -- and Romney having launched.
Thursday John eSATA for all lucky Obama will take Romney advisor make him Treasury Secretary and the Fed now but we're not all -- no.
No chances there have kept it.
-- time -- -- what the upside of this is for Romney what's the downside.
Well I mean he's it's -- -- the walk of shame he goes in there he's the loser it's all helping Obama that's the thing so why does he wanna go in the presence of someone who attacked him for a year and a half and kind of you know suck it up wondering Keeneland and I think he can't break -- Because he's a gracious -- that's part parents I want I like the duking it out you know my favorite today was the second one when they were going -- it we have it.
Well I like the fisticuffs.
Night but everything was born fights over or does the boxers -- do they really -- -- -- I think they're tired because they do you I mean Apollo and rocky did.
-- -- and they ever.
Mediterranean -- and the beach is not mouth didn't get a different movie go short jokes now now that was -- -- -- -- It just a dagger you of course Romney has to -- to -- my question is though is there any way and that while -- got the launch he can impeach Obama.
Of course yeah and if you and it would and I figured out now I've got the tips I can't say them on there has its secret OK but legally -- -- legally I mean that would be.
Don't worry about the -- and the carved out.
Yeah I saw that Kissinger asked response.
Other -- Bill I agree that these two guys would -- don't like each other.
Notice might like coalitions -- it did so that should that should affirm the legitimate I think so yes.
Just -- that's all -- have their displeasure is that it.
And stitch yeah I think it is.
That John -- Sen Obama can you some instruction I'm -- guess he doesn't view it that way.
Absolutely about anything no absolutely you are 100% right but -- he can use -- instructed them.
-- -- I don't think he'd listened by the goodness yet.
-- is raising taxes on the rich -- them around the middle class.
Matt you said there's something creepy about a rich guy telling guys like you -- something will make you feel but that's sort of the essence of big government nanny status and isn't it.
Yeah constantly you know it's it's -- -- and it comes out of now.
You know -- civil servants like Michael Bloomberg and -- -- when it comes out of the mouth of Warren Buffett and everyone is always telling us what are.
Our happiness depends on the exactly the declaration of independence covered pretty well there and articulate.
And your book to thank you -- -- I John I agree that is is absurd but this is the world we live in our right we set policy based on how we think it'll make people feel.
-- but I mean to actually say out loud.
It's going to raise the morale of the middle class can see as taking money from somebody richer.
When we're not doing anything for the middle class to make them richer.
It doesn't isn't that absurd did somebody actually says that on television.
I think it's absurd but I think it should get given credit for actually saying what's going on here eat like the first person actually black police it yeah he -- and -- and that'll happen -- out of your middle class we will just feel better old Mitt -- get -- By the IRS -- -- left.
God how about this -- if you want to make people feel better stop talking about the tax rates are talking about the actual amount of money people paying taxes.
Sure does that makes because rich people pay more taxes it -- it.
You know if you had a flat tax which we probably should have some like that.
He's -- -- if you keep if you don't if you stop saying although they're paying the same tax rate as you well who cares if they made 125 million dollars.
They're paying a lot more taxes than someone who made the 50000 up.
Switzerland -- -- -- 2000 dollars elected payment month culture or people make five million wealth could if you flip that's kind of problem.
On the -- two thirds of millionaires supposedly left Britain when the top tax rate went -- 2% Tommy said quote.
It's believed many rich -- -- moved abroad taking flight to avoid a government by.
Yeah or maybe two thirds of them found a way to declare less taxable income.
But there's no evidence that they moved anywhere it is believe that's what I was pretty crafty left -- that it -- believed -- myself.
-- my sources tell me -- exactly yeah.
Cops so woman a takedown attempt to Christmas lights but John I'm sorry I'd I'd I'd blacked out assuming during this segment it sounded like you said you agreed with the ACLU.
They've leapt to her defense to -- put her Christmas lights back up I'm sorry your reputation is toast well I mean look I'm for Christmas lights in in this one instance singular instance the ACLU is also for Christmas like until they actually agree with me.
-- -- What are you sure you would be had no problem with any Christmas lights that are done on private property.
-- -- and behind closed doors.
Now I think just on prime products no that's their that's -- that's stated gloves in the web site.
Christians can take their celebration inside closed doors of their homes in the picture it's -- and yet they're defending the right this woman at Christmas lights because outside but because it's on -- private property and no because it's the middle finger.
Now because it's not a -- -- -- -- -- middle think it's a little bit they will be -- -- in the middle finger.
But it could've been an issue could -- anything there in terms of Christmas lights and if the cops and told to get it taken down -- -- you would have said no you can't tell her to do that I'm not to sure about that growth.
I'm I'm -- and I think a lot of it was her outfit.
My limit and -- -- it then give it the case if the cops were out suppressing Christmas I think I did I don't think the ACLU and show.
And the middle finger involved we're here time.
Thought Matt this is what I think is the real problem here after being -- -- -- -- free speech issue here and that in fact courts have ruled that the middle finger specifically is protected speech.
The Denham springs police chief was asked what he would do the woman put the lights back up his answer was.
Well approach that when and if it happens.
That's like you were just told that the courts have ruled that its constitutional.
Yeah but didn't excuse me -- That's not the way cops.
Act on the street on any given day they don't sit there and say -- here's.
Here's what the constitution might say this what a judge said the other day right you know pop's living a pragmatic world and that's actually a pragmatic answer to much as I disagree but it'd.
I agree with you in terms of neglected cops -- actually told -- take -- lights out whether the cops on the beat or whatever I did I get that but I would a police chief even in small town a police chief.
I think part of his jobs to know better.
Yes and part of our job is to make a ruthless fun of him at 3 o'clock -- And even -- -- wrong but small town justice and we want to pray you never do.
-- think if not I'm not.
Can you just talk I -- forever but then and what we have here is -- communicate -- -- Capcom announced they have talked to you right Il holds.
Brazilian elevated ghost girl -- Tommy US and out of -- comforts him that the girl was actually thirty years old -- she would have been if she had still been alive.
That's trucks haul travel all those years in that elevator shaft and yeah.
You'd scream two -- John I conclude here if you I don't know how they made it through this whole thing with nobody physically attacking the girl this amendment and an old testament -- Smith you woods wouldn't it.
I why I -- if I survived a heart attack.
And kid and can get -- -- yes I probably wouldn't think I would have to assume there's a malfunction in the elevator and somebody is playing a prank to me I don't like the you don't watch horror movies do you know.
Yeah well see that is why they got himself.
Have you ever watched the shining put yourself into any situation -- did -- god awful twins and thought to yourself well my first instinct would be to give her.
Who -- you know older and run away -- -- get a project that not not twins sisters that's true.
Not to me but stand proud thank -- -- I don't 126 and I'll ask the good lord.
Still not get a guy loved horror movies -- but you are sick sick person.
Well that's just wrong I'm sorry.
I can but I know look I do watch -- -- is that if I was in that situation I probably would have known it was a -- because that it's just it's it's too -- I'm sorry that some Nancy I -- -- -- movies I would have known that that was real -- yeah but that's the problem.
Just -- -- your whole rant about the doll was stupid to -- doesn't need to be scary.
The dog has to look like it's part of the actual scene now I was a girl is carried to the fact that she's carrying -- dollars -- that -- -- would have -- graduate economics of the business now I would have been either what you referenced.
I would I'm calling you -- caucuses and hi I'm Tom -- you're not judge Thompson thank you -- coming.
