That we get anywhere until probably that would have -- TVs and alleviating.
-- -- -- -- -- yes me how I am I know I just.
Thought this time I wouldn't deceive maybe you sir it would actually -- I -- and I love my winter and I think we all learned something tonight.
This is why it I will not be coming over to the I didn't expect -- -- certain point you -- even bother to clean.
While not 1 o'clock sometimes I don't think -- that have come over and looked.
Done nothing about -- were awful -- rose.
John you said you hate I -- for all -- Alex Jones fans to dump on you tomorrow.
Let me save you and maybe maybe I can re directed to me.
And Alex Jones is not an advertisement for gun control as piers Morgan said he is an advertisement for birth control.
We -- it's gonna happen he he's he will speak out about me tomorrow and vote and then he'll speak out about it.
-- -- any I don't know why he could say he's an advertisement from birth control he looked about eight months trying now -- -- conflict.
I'm happy for -- -- tops in Edmonton glycol a belt.
Thought -- obviously I agree with you that what Morgan did here was -- a crazy person on the -- to represent a position he disagrees with.
I just don't like this is good TV I guess and ratings gold but I'd be talking about -- exactly but -- just you know people should stop pretending it's journalism does not.
Well not I -- and I think that it makes people who.
Are advocating for more gun control think that anybody who believes in the right to bear arms right.
Believes in and everything that was -- on the show last night and that's just not yet but that's part about it was about that I was music that was that was exactly what piers Morgan -- that's the point.
-- let's piers Morgan -- -- good journalism in the month I don't know Sierra actually don't know joints that Jones made that were accurate including.
Here is getting fired.
From I believe it was the mirror I'm not sure where.
Doctored photo and also he used and statistics that were actually accurate but yeah.
When it came from him -- just.
Made it all toxic yeah no absolutely it's fine and it works for their show it got them some ratings but it we're also a lot to talk about it and criticize what was that I'm not we are ER -- are we -- -- -- -- African immigrant I haven't checked yet that's still there president.
-- Although I believe the First Amendment only applies to -- it's -- Those second -- put -- protects the first yes.
Greg you said -- you know you -- talk about guns you don't know a lot about -- and that you always have to look up -- an assault rifle is and you find out just regular old -- with three things on it yes you made an assault weapon which is a completely made -- term that's what I mean yeah if you -- try to finally try to.
-- define an assault weapon into you can spend days doing -- and then what you end up finding out why it has to do with having a a flash muzzle.
And a reality call it -- but it -- next.
Or pistol grip a pistol -- anything like that -- -- completely made up term assault rifle is not really made up term break basically.
Standard a -- -- for standard military's don't.
John let me don't you think you're my guess is what what's gonna happen is I think we're gonna end up with a new and equally worthless.
Ban on whatever made up -- congress decides assault weapons are.
I think we're gonna get a bad -- capacity magazines I think that a lot of journalists are gonna refer to them -- clips because they're ignorant.
And I think we might get a closing of the so called gun show loophole.
About right yeah and if with any luck.
We'll get something.
That really involves crazy people -- -- types that just are not allowed to have anything by the the water pistol but what I don't think we're gonna get it like -- national registry of hand.
I don't think so either I've had I think that's totally -- -- some current TV staffers aren't happy with Al Gore Tommy said let's not get on the bandwagon and say that Al Gore did something wrong.
And I completely agree that he did nothing wrong in selling current Al-Jazeera but as other people point out is that hypocrisy -- Yeah and but people like us should be calling -- democracy because well by myself I'm I'm kind of -- hypocrisy.
If you are looking good because it's hypocrisy is just you know you can't be hypocritical if you don't have standards that's when you know that's what I -- so I I I tend to.
Forget about democracy just talk -- -- the issue at hand.
And it's -- to sell your business to whomever you wish him try to save on taxes what we want to get on -- gulf war is all the nutty stuff he's been over the past decade.
The right but the thing about you Tommy's you'll come on the show it to you pro democracy but off there -- completely took the opposite position.
You don't know that yet but the thing is EE.
You say hypocrisy and it like I do agree hypocrites have standards however when it gore goes after somebody for this very same activity.
What what's it going to mean is is that this isn't -- hypocrisy walk -- he'll get away with -- hypocrisy as he has his whole career because he's a liberal yet.
Because of the first -- like one for -- family values.
You know politician gets caught in affair.
They get mocked for their hypocrisy rightly so rightfully so right and a lot of -- -- end -- losing their job and when an anti gay politician gets caught in a gay affair they get the same thing.
But gore can just be hypocritical career and he's still this sort of beloved guy on the left let me just getting -- for -- now.
He -- not -- meet anybody is getting -- that he's getting mocked by people like us he's not getting mocked by did the media at large and you know in general the mainstream media from going -- and confidence in Manhattan CNN had a column honest and.
Yeah but he did say that that usually it's true yeah I might -- -- -- -- -- -- -- know I think he's getting -- -- current TV staffers.
Who believe in the nonsense that he was shoveling -- -- -- -- you think that we never even took big oil money for advertising network sold to big oil well -- -- -- -- -- -- -- But it's hypocrite as -- Diane you've pointed out -- -- -- hypocrite for years and has paid athlete maybe maybe this is I think this is the first time and I think the reason is because he was a hypocrite and went against their -- for once and now all the sudden he is getting out for a which he never has in the -- Does anybody -- -- -- said he wanted to sell his network to somebody that had his values and he chose Al-Jazeera.
I think different.
Well if those if only itself to Glenn Beck but he thought -- his -- was closer to his value.
It look at those are his values John well.
In what are the values that yeah I actually did I actually don't know.
Yes he made specific what these values -- I don't know what are what are Al-Jazeera is about what you -- to be agency will Al-Jazeera making fatal mistake of trying to westernized.
To a point that it's comical like if they try to figure out what did -- do.
To make it like more like America American.
Might be actually pretty entertaining partner for all of us.
And look towards something positive and look at current TV is a model that's just going to be fun.
Bill shame -- you suggesting that a New York Post story is suspect.
I just conceiving names.
There were names there were not names and -- -- here at the governor.
That was the Afghan grant that was -- -- -- and what Al Gore's name was in it.
That's true counselors and acts and I see corrected and I I do -- you know about silly Al -- that he Kris Joseph and it and I didn't think Al bush should have been louder about how -- that -- it's been.
Fifteen years I I agree with that.
I'm not I'm getting a good thing you're -- -- need to be invented the Internet opened both spoke before.
I would in mostly don't -- -- hold commented this is -- -- of the problem is that they're not volunteering that it's sort of like an Al Gore type upon receipt but I don't I.
This -- -- about the I don't get the argument that just because most women wouldn't want to serve in combat means that no woman should be allowed to.
Nobody is saying -- not allow well that's the point of the story they're completely allowed and what's happening.
Is enough volunteers who have they're not completely.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Yeah and interact you're being -- -- -- now John.
Actually I hate it when you guys fight.
Tom regarding your argument that the problem with women in combat roles isn't the women it's the man because when will want.
I actually do think that that's a decent argument to a certain extent I just don't think it's just positive.
Different workplace but I -- again.
I don't think that that alone means you don't do it.
All okay well no but I thought I was just concerned about if -- and I -- -- I have to deal with but they're gonna keep pretending that it doesn't exist OK that's not just positive but I believe to be a little -- negative -- there and I mean any.
This positive proving that.
Use that next time I'll months and I know it's considered this -- -- and that's this positive.
-- -- I just lastly on this the department justice forcing the university with a gluten free -- Tom the problem in this case isn't actually the original Americans with disabilities act.
Under that act tonight in 1999 and eight Circuit Court ruled that food allergies and stuff like that did not write the level of disability.
But -- September 2008 president George W.
Signed the Americans with disabilities act amendments act.
And since that's -- it had much.
Wider scope of.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- The original act was bad enough and then they just keep adding onto -- once candidates you've got you've had court ruling saying that eating disorders and other stuff like that -- Disability I'm opposed to the original one people haven't gotten all that again season gets yeah because he doesn't have a yeah that's still down for the wheelchair but this is George W Bush's fault blame all of -- it's always handy thing absolutely.
-- he invented the -- you know.
-- -- -- Dale said it played music comes -- and that means you have to go if he's given the question.
Let's not because I was conduct a very very angry at applied.
