And we have an interesting pretty jaguar opinion polls thought of by Arab boy genius Jordan Feagles who is quite the stratus tuition strategy sessions ready now to Reynolds now you know strategically is what he knows does. And a is the glass half empty or half full. I think that is a great poll that's pretty good call people answer because you don't have to do a lot of thinking about it it what kind of person are you and I hate to say it off the glass is half empty yeah I was gonna go with you on that and it's that's just got reaction yet and that's what you need to do when you vote on this pull a WWL dot com they Jordan's in the middle of hosting right now. And David if I told you on New Year's Eve that come January 14. One of the top news stories in the world would be Charlie's head go. Will would you says I Euro on your mind yankees drug cutting off no more champagne apparently David January 14 Charlie have done honestly I don't use and over and over again. You're not right. Well it is we're to talk to CBS when we come back Charlie had no releasing a cover of the Prophet Mohammed. Saying them basically Asia is sweet charity. And I I just wonder if everybody every newspaper every magazine in this country put the Prophet Mohammed on the cover. If that would somehow take the sensitivity of it away where it's like you know what. The profits out of the bottle there's nothing we can do now. He she can't kill everybody knowledge and I haven't seen it much on TV. Now by Bynum knows how it works or like saying I'm avoiding showing that's not about that the other day if everybody did this would it take away the this statement the forbidden fruit SS aspect debacle comeback talk to CBS about the latest Tommy Tucker David Blake. Jobless claims Jordan Beatles led you weather's on this chilly Wednesday morning it is 615 now cloudy and cool today at 10% chance for drizzle some of which ice on only in his manner effects be careful. Highs around 54 right now it is 42 degrees. We continued to talk about Charlie had Dylan we welcome dinner guest Jeff McCall's and colonel Jeff McCall's and CBS military analysts mornings there. Pleasures always. You know selling our newsman David Blake if back in on New Year's Eve I had told him oh by the way David January 14 biggest news story in the world is going to be a magazine called Charlie can't go. I think you would cut me off the champagne he would've said no you're drunk that's it no more for him. I think it's probably right though. Charlie had to go in Europe release in the fairly famous political satire magazine and it's fairly had been identified. By very sort of as a very care organizations. Over the years Indians are magazine which is the security magazine may have been this is one of the top ten most wanted. Targets. So they've been identified before and had been far bomb back in 2011. No we talk about training when it comes a terror. Terrorists and I'm just wondering yes awesome footage yesterday to police pull up. Did the terrorists in France start shooting a police car backs up. Our art the police and I guess the local authorities people in America adequately trained to deal with this kind of attack. Let that they are mean overall that we you know individuals' circumstances still or individual circumstances. Of these guys are very very well equipped. They have received some degree trading. You know event occurs like anyplace you can have them there in the Portland. And a copy close buy get the call to Russia that area. He or she does know exactly what their camera sometimes now we have policeman or individually you know the cars that haven't even aback by themselves. They arrive on the scene. It can a couple of Arturo. Were all over the automatic weapons that are going to be in certain circumstances miniature that's that was the case here. Party you know the large scale back up that raw actual character. The reason I ask colonel it would seem then things like this are inevitably bound to succeed because you can't it's not feasible to atone for any office for any building. To have bonkers to have barricades to have. Troops' security there with machine guns anticipating an attack like this so if not if it's not feasible then. By definition you're gonna be on prepared Ford and if you're on prepared it's going to succeed ameron crazy there or not. Not a million at all but of course the police that the period for a lot of defense. I mean look the full forceful advocates of course is the intelligence gathering that tries to gather is that an attack being planned. That's combined with you know efforts to prevent people requiring. Difficult or Thursday. Automatic weapons or explosives. Which most cases are illegal so those are the first lines of defenses. Prior to the actual event current crop with the individual weapon trying to guard inside he or she is the last farm defense. All the rest those things having not been as successful. He indicated earlier have been having been targeted by terrorist groups of 41 of the guys who was killed was actually a bodyguard the people are employed on that side. Protective because they had been identified by in our magazine in other terms. I know colonel al-Qaeda in the Arab peninsula. In Yemen specifically I think is taken. Credit for this attack is that where al-Qaeda has moved and is that where we got our lucky if I remember correctly with the drone in the mom the American that was. We dropped a bomb from the drone and he was known for his I guess the converting people radical Islam. Well a lot he was killed in Yemen. By drone strike he was American. Police had American citizenship. And clearly determined that he gave me years ago still. I continued to radicalize young Muslims around the world or somewhere across your Brothers had some contact with a lock you may have been radicalized or contact. With him. Across in the Arab peninsula is really a very they'll try to franchise of Muqtada central. If you will. That operate out of Yemen they have conducted a number of attacks or attempted to the underwear bomber near crawl. Who were brought in an aircraft over Detroit. Other the other incident where prayer cards is loaded with explosives. And ship or cargo aircraft that are acceptable way to Chicago. All of those have come out up the air as well and so it's seen policed up the that the franchises. Of al-Qaeda there's there's terrible there's. I'll show Obama in Somalia there's our pride in the in the Islamic Maghreb. Certainly now it seems to be the most deadly and had to say claimed responsibility for the terror threat. Colonel and a he had time though hold an up and I'd like to talk about the US response and isn't even our fight because. It is didn't happen on American soil as happened in France it the president didn't go to the march here. We all united in this there was that a diplomatic way of saying pain is there's no 9/11 is your thing six when he kernel calls on rejoins us. When we come back Tommy Tucker glad you what is under the W well. Big 8787 WL six when he borne out Tommy Tucker with a good friend of ours colonel Jeff because when does CBS military analyst. And colonel you know I don't you get an obviously that the politics and it's not your thing of the president going to the march but. Is this really the United States is fighters or something that France has to deal with than in terms of a military response is that something we even consider. Like it yet and yet and he's you know it is our right. They have I was very disappointed frankly the president didn't go to the march or had some senior official of the march of the pro wideout himself has not been at this as a a pretty significant mistake on the airport the week we need to result there are allies. Beta what you show there well not eleventh. The French bit warmer longest allies that we had there is currently. But you know he has the terror campaign began over a rock and Syria back in September would now conducted to elect sixteenth or seventeen under their. Air strikes. The French were the first step up and join that particular fight we have to show solidarity with them. That that being said there's any silver lining in that dark cloud the president or something special was not there. I think it is bit this reminds me Europeans. That this is there by as well that's not something they get involved with because the American over time. I have had European data be you know the American dragged in this. Through the American flight back in the eleven dragged into this well there was a rock with Afghanistan. And I think now it underscored that there have been known fact. It is their fight in frankly. They have a lot of challenges due in large Muslim populations in those particular countries. And the rack factory boost the vote populations. Live in very impoverished dinner is strictly plays like a Paris which are breeding ground for the type of radicalization and terrorists. Yeah I didn't know that you if France had the largest number of Muslims in Europe and about five Brody and I think. And alert as to a number of Jewish people at 500000 handsomely. From his errant. That's that's that's about right in and also the French who had the largest number we believe. Foreign fighters go off to fight in Syria Iraq to be like a thousand which caused them great concern. But these few make get radicalized Katrina weapons in return in the civic political logic Brothers may be an illustration of that because assembly they spent some time in Yemen. If not insert. The hum response everybody every time someone who likes it like this happens a lot of people you respond emotionally NC nukem. Let's go to war obliterate him etc. but. How would the United States if they do get involved handle this I mean do you do it with intelligence and drone strikes like we did with. Lock key Al ally Koehler do you do you is there any common enemy here guess what I'm saying in Yemen. The liquidity for the common enemy in Yemen include common enemy that is site. Now it didn't go after them pitiful way electoral do you know war is to state actor that that can be very very difficult political we have to recognize. That this is. Really more ways about the Islamic community that is about the west where a by product of this particular fight and we have to keep that in mind. Yeah. The food reveal longer struggle like fear that. There we're gonna have to deal with for some period and a large for the struggle is defeating this radical. Ideology was the vast majority of mobile during the autumn Burris. But that's cryptic Walter on ethnic cooperation with moderate air throughout the world. A terrific intelligence gathering but can we take containing these particular problems until late fall apart based on the road internal contradictions. And it's gonna take direct military action. That but large scale military forces occupied territory correctly as we did in Iraq I think at times it really exacerbate this problem because defeat imperative that the west is here. They use the term the crusaders are here. To take our territory tape or oil and that's simply encourages me anyways. Young Muslims to believe that there to join the fight provide resources and the consequences or as we say. Colonel appreciate your time is on an as always and Tonya next time you come into long and slimming orally second launch with a but I'm gonna bend your era ammonia. Thank you sir have a great day. I'd so are ready jaguar opinion poll asking you is a glass half full or half empty. Pretty easy thing for you to vote on I would say half empty. Any other question I have for you is. ISIS' the United States fight. Or is this to assumption that France has to deal with because a lot of yell or texting and insane you know. Back in the day we had freedom Fries we didn't have French Fries because the French refused to. Let us fly over there air space and something else else that happened with France do you. Do you really think we should get involved in this and is that why the president didn't go to the march sending out. A field diplomatic message if you will make. Not our fight this as yours so we'll talk about that won't come back we'll also talk about fix my streets and is that haven't success or not right now time for DeVon WL first news and for that we go to David Blake. About change my vote here which at but the clerk at the voting machines been turned off. Eric and I changed my vote is that the kind of thing like in the legislature where they vote then politically they eat ya AC nobody else votes had a change that would change the picture NC voting record missiles still pass I can say I voted against its. Yeah let me change my vote are. Is glass half full or half empty I'm gonna go with half full I think if you look at everything that you have gone forty in the life. Your daily routine. Your friends your family how lucky you are definitely tastes about debt. When withdrawing U one yesterday TV. I can't remember the name of it but it's on. Haynes. Nazareth is the name of the facility guy he's an inspirational guy yet helped him feed that him it was a whole group of tears I basically just talked to people. That feeds him elderly residents of that facility. Hot meals that they would not have otherwise had because so many of them are against. You know there's there's no meal service errors so much are against it with. Medicine in our social security and out of money to buy food to see them enjoy this food and talked a couple of guys from Cuba who came over in the sixties. When Castro took overs that was like a living history lesson. Lieutenant. The first lieutenant I think he graduated from Annapolis right as a war started he was a mechanical engineer and you know they have him doing. The navy fixing air conditioning. Throughout the South Pacific because the brass wanted to be cool gal a brass wanted there and they're air conditioner worked as a mechanical engineer. Aches and air conditioning I guess whatever it to whatever aggregate talk about fixing my streets anyway getting back to that you we realized so many people yeah. Do and so much good work and helping people and gone with the glass being half full out there are the real is to get hot meals. That's like. I mean everything to them and anti yea you know it's it's almost like you feel selfish and not you know him and I know gotta go here but I had an account one time. Cynical hard borrow tax accountant and I was talking name when times and is. Blah blah blah blah blah they say on here and has me. He taught him on nothing but you'd you'll feel better go help somebody. And I did not felt that it won't combatant at about six months streets double WL I Tommy Tucker talking about the fix my street's campaign and also about that terror attack in. In France and and I just wondered I'd like to know if this is our fight. Should we be involved in the issued we retaliate should week find out who did it in Yemen because of comparisons are being made between. Those Brothers that orchestrated that attack in the Brothers had orchestrated the attack here. In the at the Boston Marathon. Andy you know might I think you make your case both ways that we got Europe involved is the colonel said in our fight after 9/11 because that's what allies are about. But did the president when he didn't go to this march was he sending the signal diplomatically. You run your own here. But I think their common enemies because. They're enemies of both France and so the abuses particularly. Related to the Charlie's. Cement Charlie dad did Charlie ago. Magazine. And I was I was speculating earlier if everyone were to make fun of the Prophet Mohammed would it take away the the forbidden profit part of it where you know what. Everybody's dual and it's so as I said earlier the profits out of the bottle but then we're in a conversation here with Shelden in Jordan. And Shelden made a good point in that if you do that. Then every Muslims. Even if they're not radicalized is going to be insulted. And then you would have the entire Muslim community. Angry and perhaps. Nobody friendly to the west and democracy and and would we call American life etc. I'd like to know what you think the other thing is this fix my street's campaign. Finally appears to be bearing fruit they fixed Carlyle quart in Algiers in the book Nigeria. Which I would say if you've driven there and I destroyed an oil hand on it street not drive and fastest at one of these raised. Manhole covers and in the way it works. Is that the streets and surrounded so you go down first. So you cars low enough to really hit a raised manhole cover and do the maximum amount of damage. If out al-Qaeda was arranging a street to destroy your car this is how they would do because you go down. And and you try to lower levels so that by the time he met this manhole cover you really do some damage. So they fixed Carlyle I don't know if that's fuse lit servicers signed service to the fix my streets people. Do you really think you'll ever see virulently view or Algiers with the streets are terrible. Your street exit way where are the worst streets. In the new lowlands area and if you were to prioritize. Which ones. Should be fixed first we'd love to hear premium and that did we also have Randy Newman tickets today. Free ones Randy Newman's going to be at the mean Elliott Jackson theater Saturday night 730. And I have to do is listen me all of this week between six and 10 AM when you hear his. Iconic song about us Louisiana. I'm gonna give you the number to call in when appeared tickets to an evening with Randy Newman presented by the Louisiana philharmonic orchestra and presume.

And the weather today mostly cloudy colder 10% chance forward drizzle Heiser on that before. Right now it's 420. And have decided to bring them meters from pipe out today because it makes it nicer bubbles. And also because we're talking about some very serious matters. Tommy gentility good morning old boy you're on WW well. Eight. Good school. It's good scoop. School education. What would be a way. To call. Street. Could be a big. Street. That probe. And oh. Touting the Italian. I have gone a long time ago and I lived analogy years and I know who the mayor was. But they hired they they hired somebody commissions of money to do some art some of them were murals some artistic murals that they hung in the fire department. The building's fire stations Letterman and there were fires station to me to me a science and fire station would accomplish the same thing maybe even a better thing because you would have known. Is that supposed be you'd of known it was a fire station. They also had some other works of art that they put it Berman playground. Now I swear to you that in the summertime they would have these works of art. With grass about a foot and a half high growing underneath them because they didn't have the money to cut the grass. To your point of what you're saying with the neighbors know that I'm all for that I'm all for beautify in an area. Like Jake got to hand the money first. Woody column Jefferson Parish has done some work on. Did the neutral ground on veterans boulevard waiting insane out and say it doesn't but the bottom line is they have money to take care they're basic needs first. So I'm with you Amanda drives mean I'm all for Harrison avenue look in Brady with neighbors. And any other question areas.

She has no problem with her husband being the head of the house soul she says she and her husband are equal but she should be. And here's the keyword. Submissive to her husband. You agree or agree because and every time they know that Bible reading in church. Where oh wives submit. And as is fathers don't nag your children unless they lose heartening. Says some but the fathers too but it remember quite what it is because men wrote the book. Anyway can I household really be run 5050. Or does somebody. Man or woman has to be the leader when all was said and done or can you. Default to somebody's area of expert expertise for example.
