Stupid and drunk is a dangerous combination is it ever you know I had something happened to me. And talk about a couple of weeks ago on the on to until plus aggressive city connection SE lights bombing on. An unmarked car guy gets out with a radio I can't believe you passed my lights. Blah blah blah blah blah goes talks money generating and is looking at Tom bullet to go now. And other salmon up as a real police officer now this is targeting you ask why Hosni overdosed on upn and at any no point did he show me a bad. Anything. That line I'm mark yeah and about handling light to put on what you're. And the studies I've wondered about and I we come back dated. We're talking about the dress but not in the way you name. I'm gonna bring it back to the miracle on the Hudson Sully Sullenberger and I like muted town colon and Tellme. I'm secure right in handling if you think it's my imagination if I have lost my mind you know what you agree with it like now I don't disagree if you agree with me night and will talk when we return evidently well. Mean. I'm ready Jack Clark and. Hole after the news that broke over the weekend allegedly about the Benson family and a physical altercation between his granddaughter and his wife. Have adults and your family ever had a physical confrontation. And the numbers have been pretty consistent so far two thirds saying no 13 saying yes there has been in my family. And I would just like to know. Because I don't think is a function of money at all I think you can be rich and be happy I think you'd be rich and have. Just a horrible family situation ID you can pour and beat porn be happier in the NB point at a horrible family situations so I would like to tortilla. About dad my point is it's not always. About money now let me tell you about this dress and if you think I'm crazy please. Feel free to call in and tell me. Now let's go back to the miracle on Hudson January 15 2009. I think we were all struck and even to this day if you call up the picture and look at that white plane. Loading on the water with people's seemingly standing on the water waiting to be rescued all though. It's an optical illusion because they were standing either on a rafter on the wing but either way it looks like you're standing on a water. Now gore won back to win the this happened. January 15 2009. You had Barack Obama. Who whether you agree or not it was a very divisive. President not that he. Was intentionally dividing the country but you remember when it happened back in the day a lot of people were upset a lot of people were thrilled. And I look at that it is just me. Looked is that white plane with the people standing on the water. And as you know what there's a white dull. And as a sign sent to is saying everything is going to be OK everybody's in an opera where bodies. Going crazy this happened in the biggest market media market in the country. So you knew everybody was gonna see it there were plenty of pictures of it it wasn't going to be as though this happened in the middle via low or up in northern Louisiana where there's a lot of media coverage. After about you know middle of the the gears corn fields of wheat fields whatever Louisiana. Don't even know we grow that not the point. So then I'm thinking about this dress thing as I'm taking a bike ride with a handshake Betsy the boxer actually being pulled along which is a neat sensation again not the point. And think about distress thing. And how will we were in the office on Friday all looking at the same page here in months said well it's a it's golden blank via a golden white the other says it's blue and black the other ones that I think it was. And do whatever I don't know. So here's my point and it's given the fact that we are racially charged in this country. That if you look at trade on Martin and George Zimmerman if you look at other police shootings that have happened since. And even a problem in New York with day they guy that the police showed any guide there was another police involved shooting last night. Could this not be. Some kind of sign up listened before you think you're at so and not to mention the political turmoil and you know there's absolute writer absolute wrong in your opinion. Could it not be that. This is some kind of sign that you know what we all see things differently. And you'll argue to your debt that it's golden and white and you'll argued to your debt that it's blacked. And blue when in fact it is merely a symbol. A metaphor if you will for all of us in the country seeing things differently. Thinking that we are the only ones that are right and that there is no other way to see things. That's that's my opinion and I would love to hear from yet. At T 60187. Into the get a text here I'm tired talking about the dressed we're not talking about the dressed. We're talking about what the dress signifies. What the miracle on the Hudson signified. To me. If you disagree if you think I'm who's in my mind if you think I'm making things up in my head. I'm a big boy and secure enough to handle it and I would love to hear from me at 260187. You know also contained a call about the budget about tax credits and even about the the the story that broke over the weekend about the physical. Altercation. That allegedly occurred between mr. Benson's granddaughter. And mr. Benson's wife which had to be nothing but heart breaking for him and if you wanna call and anonymously. You tell me. I've been honest I've been candid about the way I look at it you tell me again. If my imagination is running away. Or if I am I make and stuff up or if you agree to 601870. Right now time for Devin have you traffic. If that would go to a go to Tehran province. Tommy Tucker aids when he saw him get a text that comes in. Dress. Dull but the hell you talking about. And I just saying I believe in signs and I think some of these things could be signs a thing to landing on the Hudson could be if you go back to 2009 January of very controversial time in his nation. Adding to look at that landing on the Hudson as. Know people walking on water will the White Plains big white dominant innings be all right. And then in terms and address the issue I just snaked a lot of people think they are absolutely writer absolutely rock. I don't care about distressed I don't care if it's a golf ball being out of bounds whatever it is I don't think anybody's willing to listen anybody else now. Sticks come in and from losing your mind no way did it along time ago as a little budget. No it says about the dress she is spot on their more than one ways to see everything. And then there's this that's a nice thought and another one the dress signifies an American priorities are in the wrong place and look as much in the Sunday morning talk shows. And I'd. Can't agree more with what they were saying that with all the serious problems in this country. Hum the two main issues worthy addressed. And a lama's and I I think that says a lot about people's due diligence and paying attention to what's gone on now James and Marie RO. He's paying attention to what's going on resume talks about he wants to talk about. Tax credits. Hey Tommy you don't. All of its Q clarify. Mr. Kennedy comment you know. Governor Jindal. I agree with you or. Is our nation by. Tax credits are right now. The parent hacks it's concrete on their income or ever on. And liquidations. Europe. Right now what China hacks it out boxed. They get money. They touched turned the state at the end of the year they turn even expect oh goat track this can't get that 101000 dollars. So it's like the state subsidizing. Irish amongst. Exactly. Like it could Padgett at this stage set up you are about dollars. As did you know all. And. Error has seen 101000 that's for one business. You come out huge amounts of money year. Outlets such as Aetna. And where they're proposing to do it naked with a call uncle meeting should it have actors they hear you money back. Karrie or took next year you have a critic could you got like yours. You can use it. Your call it to delete. It charged. Us. It concern want the other governor Jindal mentioned. It should eat something all you offshore at all. Situation. Should accept cuts all where. At the end of the year. You're talking about dollars the state that exactly I think. Secretly talk not seeing client on a million dollars. Street and the government that no match did and then get a million dollar estate. A and you talk about streets are. Already. And what these credits work even if you. Again and doing it's it's now. Right it's a credit you know that's right that's and I'm trying to say its audit out. If even as yet no tax liability you can get a refund even read in any tax. Back. Up okay great. Now we're caught and now our current app is arguably. In the optical. Picture right here and all. It won't. You know I think. Each equator on ability. On the we act on. And Sam and James appreciate your explaining net because. I think it's complicated stop I think it's interesting political maneuver and almost laundering of money where yet they add to the parish. Like you file with the states of the city gives it back Tia Whitman are nearly laundering the money. Did that they're given the parish right through you pretty much. Not probably not they are not there could be now illegal activities are. Not just sane political class at the active times at times they are appreciate cholera. Yet a boy right T six. Strong 960187.

What she did you know I liked as a now but then when they lost their last group regulars Vegas tennis up watching. So will play audio for you and you tell me if it's tasteless or not and what's beyond Megan on the now time for them WL first news for that. We go to the public in a moment or two David we're to talk about the yum. Scott Walker coming in second in the seat pack hole. Behind it. Rand. Paul. Got Rand Paul's sudden I'm on top of a lot of these would. Walker suddenly appears in a lot of attention over the wind adds an extremely. Conservative group obviously seat act in all happy and be elected generally at Miller Bobby Jindal came in. As well I think he spoke to him last week dating yeah theaters today yeah I iced I think I saw the top ten and I don't think Alex on time. There and it was only should you Stanford. Scott Walker. Kidding about the top ten using the show last night I should issue a spoiler alert here are trying to zoom out the last man on earth on fox did you see this. Null it sure looked interestingly today on notion I talked about it Christian crushed Jordan shelled and should it we just read an article by Christian website cruise line says it. Shiite issue a spoiler where are all Lorie has everyone's seen it or did they. Yeah I might spoiler alert is regarding. Coke which Texans in wrecked downside of Crescent City connection middle lane east bank bound to be aware that. So again I did turn your radio down not off don't change channels is turning down. For a couple of seconds while I talk about the last man on earth now wait a minute iPods are so it was a comedy. It is Oka and you're thinking to yourself. And in only the radio on maggots yeah Kamal but yet they get to yourself well how far can they go with the last man on earth. And I if I was so pleasantly surprised with the way they took it. Because you'd think. Ideas spoiler alert turned down. You think that if you were the last person on her than you were getting failures they get ready cure yourself and and you found out that there was another person. You would think that the two of eulogized gravitate toward each other that you'd well you aren't so happy to have supply. But it's not. It's somebody that drives and absolutely. Crazy at you Eddie it's like the the odd couple but. What the last people on earth that you have to see adding contacts at ten and joke comes in a texture of the Kansas visitors as they didn't really care for it. I loved it has it surprised me and it makes every bit of sense why would you automatically be compatible with somebody just because Hewitt the last two people on earth. But you know much trees so he would you think Tommy Tucker coming back talking about politics Lara brown from CPS on C pac. And Scott Walker when we return on WB well. 846 Tommy Tucker with the evidently UN dollars blog should clear up eventually then a 30% chance spotty showers. Highs around 72 it'd days 78 tomorrow Wednesday highs around Sydney than temperatures fall. Again Thursday and Friday were back to that Seattle ask 60% chance for showers and rain. Is around 41 and grinding has around 4320%. Chance for showers. If viewers so wrapped up in either of the dress or the lama's last week union missed. A gathering that could affect one of maybe three people from which we have to choose to be our next president Lara brown joins us right now political analyst. Professor and graduate school political management at George Washington University. To talk about seed pact in the straw poll that they conducted mourning process. Yeah thanks for taking the time with a but those that don't really know. About seed pact but they know often take a second please if you will and walkers through that organization. Well I think what's important understand that that this is in the long time grassroots organization. We in the conservatives. I'm sort of base and we in the Republican Party. One of the things that is true. About. Deepak is that it is highlighted. Presidential candidates. You know for as long as I can remember watching presidential campaigns in the modern era. In fact Ronald Reagan made it very. Are important speech there in the 1976. Presidential cycle though he is con as the starting gun often times. For how every one and within the Republican Party begins to view and see their candidate. In terms of of past performances. Almost like you're looking at a racing form and straw polls and candidates and eventual. Republican nominees gunning idea with their track record as. Well it's not very good in fact I didn't get him out about it couples. That they Donnelly three times that they actually picked the presidential on the. Would that be because. Every president and a presidential election primary season its outer somebody always comes use in the horse racing metaphor from behind that a long shot that you never would have. Expected or is it because seed pact is so far to the right. They nominate somebody or somebody. That wins straw poll but he can't stay that way Il or if they do they can't possibly be elect. Intend to be more that latter is that that the bigger problems. Is that they really want people who represent their values and who put forward conservative principle. And often times it's sort of the more establishment Republicans who are looking for somebody who can win. Say to themselves that won't be the right candidate. I'm trying to think there will be two it is when he fifteen it will be another seed pact before. Or they'll be going on while the I'm sorry profess similar beacon users will be gone on it while the primaries are going on they won't meet next year. Yea you know my understanding is they're scheduled for march of next year's that the likelihood is. By then they should call what's happened nominee did not. They will likely be counted sort of two candidates made the tree at the Mac. So they can highlight rather than select. Right. In terms of you know and you make me think now this might be the kind of thing you don't wanna win but. In terms of Scott Walker Rand Paul who was that the finish third. You know that's detector about it and our Ted Cruz like I'll be mr. right and ending arson and and then. Come. Do you have any idea. Just you know from from data from. Gut feeling is an alien business of picking winners and loses it. It is say top three Republican candidates that would hand at this time the best chance of moaning eight. Successful campaign against whomever the Democrat might be an inning and also tell me at the top three Democrats would be. Well I think that when you look on the Republican side on you essentially have three candidates who have started hiring staff. Have on the road trips that Iowa and New Hampshire and have really what I would consider QB. Made serious efforts to put together what's going to be campaign whether or not they're going to be able seed it's kind of another question. But those the Greek. On our Rand Paul Scott Walker in Jeb Bush. So I. I really do gains in many ways it kind of we'll come down to. Is the party interest did. In a senator who might take them and a slightly different. Ideological. Trajectory ID insisted in a governor who might not have any foreign policy experience. But appears to have a personality. That the party is very enamored with or will be sorted. You know the experienced hand where everyone feels. You know there's at least a long history with the bush family and we know what we're getting into Lebanon democratic. Well I don't think there's any question it yet secretary of state Clinton has this nomination essentially wrapped up we're not seen. Other contenders jumpy in the race or organizing against Terry any kind of serious way. Former governor Martin O'Malley. Has made even. The move and certainly impressed. By it it. It's unlikely that anyone point to be able to challenge her commanding lead. Professor appreciate you time I'm sure we'll get to talk to you again. Early so much thank you professor Laura Brown political analysts in the graduate school little good political management. At George Washington University 8528. Before 91 thing I wonder if having a brother who was resonant and having a father who was president in the case of Jeb Bush would help him or hurt him because the professor ages said. You know with the bush family you know what you get in but I and all know that that. In my opinion is necessarily true because. HW was certainly different than W 853 now time for traffic in that William Terrell Robinson. Brian on this morning 858 already two point nine and next hour we're gonna talk about. The United States doing enough to help the hostages held by crisis. Parents of two Americans killed by the terrorist group or criticizing how Leo bond in Obama administration handled the situation. Do you think the united stationed should negotiate with ideas weight should the US negotiate with ices. If they have a an American citizen. And as your answer change of it's your child or relative and I would think so far. For Americans that and we'll find out when we come back for any American that has been taken hostage by ices it's not as though. They didn't know the risks of where they wore I gave you these numbers Syrian observatory. Reports that ice is is killed 1969. People. And they've only been around since last June 2 thirds. Over 12100 were civilians as scenes now they. Have a bunch of Christians that they're holding but they did release nineteen Sunday. And I think 29. Were released. Early new weekend. 220. Syrians were captured on February 23 set of 220. I think if my numbers are correct they've let nineteen. And 29 go. And they say this might be because. Prices once too appears though. If they're credible and rational but I think it's a little late for that will be back on definitely well.
