And I have been asking people what concerns you.
But -- you most concerned about in terms of the spirituality.
And the direction of our nation and -- world I've talked to very prominent Democrats are prominent Republican.
And I was surprised.
By the uniformity.
And those have been formed -- comments this morning.
Now not my intention to offend anyone.
I have -- discovered however and.
Think -- very difficult is it to a large group of people these days and not offend him.
People are proud that feeling from the shoulders waiting for you to think up.
You hear that they can't hear anything.
The police are out in force at all times.

It's forget about.
-- in his speech in unanimity of thought.
And we need to concentrate.
On being respectful.
-- those people with whom we disagree.
And that's -- I think we begin to make real progress.
And one last thing about political correctness.
Which I think is a horrible thing.
I'm very very.
And I'm not ever out within an -- Because this country went on -- principles of freedom of thought and freedom of expression.
It put them -- on them.
There at the same time.
Keeps people from discussing important issues.
While the fabric of -- society is being.
-- for the accurate.
And what we need to -- start talking about things about things that are important.
Things that were important and the development of -- -- One of those things with change.
I'm very passionate about education because it makes a big difference in my life but here we are at a time in the world.
Thirty of people who -- high school in this country.
44% of people who start.
A four year college programs -- not mention it in for -- About.
Think -- -- -- darker time in -- 200 years ago when slavery was going wrong.
It was illegal.
To educators played particularly -- and why do you think.
When you educate me -- -- -- And there -- was as a youngster.
Myself and things situation that horrible institutions it because it wasn't thinking it -- -- education a horrible.
My classmates -- to this person in the world called -- I -- -- -- the blood of our books.
You know admittedly it was a bit -- -- Single parent you know my mother brother got divorced early on my partner's there.
Luckily -- Had a horrible.
Covered her husband.
And that's accurate indication that particular habits -- property.
Had a horrible temper -- so -- think.
That you'd think.
But I had something very important and a mother.
Who believe them.
And I had a mother who would never allow herself to be -- them no matter what happened.
Never made excuses.
Thinks he never accepted an excuse from.
And if we ever came up with an excuse show that you have a brain.
And -- the answer was yeah.
John is -- -- -- Did.
It was the most important thing he did for my brother my -- Because you don't accept excuses -- people's giving him there -- And that is critical issue.
When it comes.
You know we did live in dire poverty.
And one thing about.
Poverty you know people -- buying the property could.
But you know my mother.
Leave the door open or.
To -- wisdom.
-- the -- -- -- and in him.
Some developing minds so that the control their own.
You know what god gave them to -- and her opinion my brother and I don't think it was that line.
Because it was a turn up the team that is -- -- only two -- three programs and we with apparently took a piece.
From the Detroit public -- and submit to her written book reports.
Which she couldn't read.
But check -- and highlight that there.
You know I'd -- it.
My friends -- -- and it could threaten her friends that's in the state.
House -- -- -- -- And I -- hear them you know that right there.
But after while sleeping and reading those.
Because we were there -- between a couple of -- go anywhere to be ready to when he.
-- -- can't you read about people of accomplishment.
-- -- I can't -- it person who has the most.
And what happens.

He looked at our government.
To -- Broad street granting the government for now because now there's.
End -- you know watch out there's really.
And then when we look at their education.
-- -- -- -- Anybody and that's -- was completely.
Because I don't mountain in the outskirts of society in the anchor read -- could have political guys.
-- government work.
You really want to be impressed take a look at the chapter on education.
And my latest book America the beautiful which I wrote with my way out here.
-- and that education and you'll -- question.
From sixth grade.
Him from the team.
The text of the past six greens I doubt most Carlos -- -- house.
We have dumb things down to their vote.
In the reason that that is so.
Because the people who founded this nation.
Sit at our system of government with the -- well informed and educated.
And when they become good reform.
They become wrong.
Our system of government and that's why education.
So -- Import.
-- something -- ask your overblown and there.
-- -- I'm concerned about things gotten where.
Started accurate have been.

Not just lawyers have anything against lawyers put it out here's the thing about lawyers and I'm sorry but I gotta be truth.
That it took.
The lawyers Larry in law school to win.
By hook or by crook you've got to -- -- -- -- these Democrat lawyers get college Republican lawyers and others I want to win.
We get rid of that what we need to start thinking about is how do we solve problems.
In -- for a good shot let me finish here.
You know one -- reason I don't like to bring up problems without some solutions them.
My wife and I started the earth and countless -- sixteen years ago.
After we heard about survey international -- in the -- that -- the eighth graders.
In 22 countries to solve math problems and we came out number 21 point barely beat them very concerned.
And we go to schools and we know -- -- -- -- wrestling.
That in other.
The quarterback was the big man on campus.
And what about.
The intellectual superstar.
And -- -- society.
Apparent on the hit there in their little -- you know nobody cared.
And is there any any wonder that sometimes market China hi I want and know that there's -- This is not helping.
To lead starting giving substance from all backgrounds for superior.
And demonstration of humanitarian quality.
Unless you care about other people in that -- march where.
We've got plenty of people like that we don't need knows we needs are people who hear about other people we wouldn't give -- money the money would go into a trust.
The interest on him when he went to college they get that money.
But also the school's trophy every bit as encouragement and we're -- -- right out there with the others.
They get a medal.
They get to go to Aruba.
And we try to put on this kind of those we do this policy -- I have nothing against athletics or anything -- please believe me it up unprovoked blocked their ratings -- -- -- What will maintain our position in the world.
The ability to play perfect jump shot in the abilities of equipment equation and we need to put things into proper perspective.
And you know anything.
That's when we put Carson scholars.
And the hope Klitschko -- the over the next year.
And and their credit card which turned sixteen years ago when he first Maryland.
That was given out more than 5000 and we're an -- -- but we also put in reading.
-- in place that no little kid.
Could possibly not.
And they get points for them out and it's been and they're beating number book that -- treatment and treatment for practice.
Beginning in two for the price that -- doesn't -- -- -- their academic performance -- that group.
And we particularly.
Target title one schools where kids come from.
Homes with no books and goes.
-- -- library it.
Those are the ones -- and we did -- that process -- -- because we can't afford to those people.
You know for every one of those people that we can.
Find out that -- -- The ocean and mediocrity.
That's one less person -- Protect yourself and from one best person you -- -- people -- looking.
-- them one more productive member of society.
Invent a new energy source or from a particular for cancer they're all important to us and we need every single one.
And actually about -- announcement.
Carson scholars toward.
Why -- so important that we educator.
Because we don't wanna go -- as -- as many other nations who have preceded it.
I think particularly about ancient Rome.
Very powerful nobody.
Challenged him militarily.
What happened to them.
And destroy themselves from with him.
Fiscal it's your responsibility.
And if you don't think that can happen to America.
You -- -- books and start eating but you know we can fix it.
We have some of the most intellectually gifted people.
Leading our nation.
-- we need to do.
What are real responsibilities are so we can solve the problem I think about these problems all the time.
And you know my -- -- He used -- the help.
And one of our big problems right now.
And I definitely not politically correct or there but you know -- -- it.
Is a big problem.
And our national debt.
Sixteen and a half hours you think that's not all the money.
-- -- Count one number per second which you can even cause what you get to a thousand you'd take -- let.
One -- number protect not only -- account.
Years more than a half a million years to get.
We have to do what it -- -- a family.
Falls on hard times kittens and downward mode is part time work -- our children becomes the fact children.
We're gonna have to reduce your -- I'm not happy about it but.

Not too well.
Thing happening announced that what about.
There is no one who could possibly comply with every not in America.
If I want to do -- you I think -- department.
-- What we need to do -- come up with something that.

That there must be something inherently fair about proportionality.
You make ten billion dollars you've put at a billion.
You make ten dollars you put -- one we're gonna get rid of it -- They put us up.
Because it didn't hurt the guy who -- ten billion dollars but that got a ten.

He just put -- billion dollars and that -- The result at 600 in two banks in the Cayman island.
