Well committee Bob Mitchell the real Robert Mitchell filling in for Angela and little oil a couple of things we talked about the last hour that you didn't get a chance to fold and and express your opinions on and add a few more things to a the one thing that just really grabbed out only. This story I think started somewhere around in around three weeks ago you may have. Remember about a Virginia woman that left her kid locked in the car. While it happen again. With the same woman Virginia woman now is in jail this week after allegedly leaving two children and a hot car. Now here's the crazy thing about this. Parked outside of the court house while she turned herself in for a previous case of leaving a child. And heart car. Seoul police charged her with three counts of contributing to the delinquency or abuse of a child. After the two children ages one and six were founded our car with the windows close. Surveillance footage shows the kids may have been the car for more than an hour now how in the world could you go to court. To answer a charge. To turn yourself in. And then you're guilty of the same exact thing leaving these two kids in the car and kind of odd that someone caught the lead. Situation. Called the deputies and got them out. So at this point what do we do with this woman is it time. To start actually thinking about taking these children away from this mother no no one likes to do it. No one likes to take any child away from a mom no one likes to take a child away from their friendly but this is the second time. This same woman has done the same exact thing. Bible four to six year old well late seventy. In the Colorado. And development Torre was stopped giving his commencement speech. Because he planned to come out as a date now we've later gave the speech at another location. But in the commitment to meant commencement address he had planned to come out his day of them and they read the speech that said no you cannot do that. Is a commencement address the place to come out as today. And usually that's just starting to have. Jump around and sodomy and want your thoughts on a walk your opinions that may be. Maybe I'm way off base here but if we are all looked at each other as equals. Is it necessary to express publicly. What true sexual preference. I don't stand up and apply that he's became known that and saying guess what I'm straight. I wonder what purpose does it serve. And do people really need to come out as anything does it doesn't really really matter. Bible for 2601 late seventy. Let's go to let's go to to buy Bobby's been holding and of will won't go to him also and also wanna talk about. Specially you people who live in Jefferson Parish. Don't know whether you've heard about it yep but Jefferson Parish school board members are considering. Asking voters for a higher. Property tax to raise as much as plenty I'm sorry 200 million dollars to build as many as ten schools. Now would you vote for higher property taxes of all the money went into the building and news goes and can you trust the politicians. To do what they say they're gonna do with the money power your promoted Bob good to have your photo. Another beautiful day Bob you really nice enough little warm out there but. Commence. Could affect Africa now I'd I know. From many if not in Jefferson Parish. But can we really today can we trust politicians on any promises they make at all. No matter. My opinion I mean. You know somebody. That they say that they're gonna use money or light the lottery. You know listening and uses to totally dedicated to education. To. You know police officers increases that are just into cat attacks in Panama. Extra monies that they can get and its debt goes there so. You know it goes back to a general on course everybody. You get to it in Edgar. You know it didn't. Agendas that there actors and trying to figure also. You know how would be expected. 200 million dollars. That they're you know property tax code to trustees. Those school go. You know I don't know you know boaters were feel about there. It it it trust it at me it's it's amazing that the wheels voters have so little faith. And so little trust of our politicians are just because it's happened to have over and over. Right it's you know there users in legislation right now. And and anything that you know they promised does not mean that they gimmick and carried out so. Well what's really interesting is that it it ends up I believe today. And as far as I know from from our news department and a couple of conversations we don't know what's trending in a state law that they have to have a balanced budget. And what they about a billion dollars in the red right now. Daria court. And Edward news balances. And men amended. You know and and changes. You know ordinarily come out today mean he balances and a lot every year you know. You know. I would note and I I wouldn't let him handle in my checkbook that's for sure. Bob a Colorado valedictorian. Was stopped from giving his commencement speech because he plan. To come out Thursday now number one. It is a commencement speech the place to come out this day and I'm just looking at things and look at hoping to poke a little differently. If we are all to look at each other equally. And not I don't care I don't care will be straighter day that's that's strictly your business that has nothing to do with the I can I can be your friend Nolan no no matter what but if we were all to look at each other equal. Is it really necessary to express publicly what true sexual preference. I don't think so I think this is it was so popular camera steered into. Patent commencement speech. Where he. Comes out. And now says he's gay I mean. You know that. You know adopted from week we've been here is one every day except in stranger aren't so that. Like this occurs and you know no one here sex life for me and that's what all. You know Buick is somewhat future. And come out other major and let them beat. You know. Go to contention. Ursula and you know that's what were you doing here. You know talking about something personal and its aero but it is. Would your votes be more useful be inspirational. You spoke to. You know we pulled impostor quote. About life you Stearns. Other kids. You know it is appropriate actions and you know occurred in him motivate. A lot. I think that's. I think that's the way the school felt that that that. That would overshadow by him coming on stand on gay would. Would overshadow the of the message of you know basically you can do anything. You'll do Bob where you are you up or may be a fun question. I woke police are searching for a woman. Who sprayed. Pepper spray it on customers in ploy is in sunny fast food restaurant because she was upset.

Lay out for you what's on our WWL talked table we discussed some of the film what's trending. And this is a situation that. I would I would have to take into something I would have to take the children away from this mother and give them to and another family member. A Virginia woman is in jail this week after allegedly leaving two children again. In a hot car now. Here's what makes this story really really interesting and different because unfortunately this seems to happen all the time people. Leave it to adore Olivo on animal and a hot car. But this woman was headed to the court house. To turn herself in for previously leaving a child and a hot car you get the picture. She was already arrested ones for leaving a child on a hot car for now she's headed to court. Two faced the judge and she leave two children ages one and six in the car with the win those close. Surveillance footage shows the kids they've been in the car for more than an hour. The kids were dripping wet it's wet on their brows.

Was stopped from giving his commencement speech because he planned to come out Tuesday and Wednesday he would turn the speech it and ahead of time now. He later gave a speech at another location. Question. As they commencement address the place to come out as day. Now here's something that just have been rattling around my brain because I don't care if your day. I don't care transsexual I don't care what you wore. Europe person and I'm going to treat you equal I'm not going to discriminate entry to any differently but. If we are to look at each other as equals isn't necessary to express publicly what your sexual preferences. It seems to me that doubles any award shoulder is someone stands up and says a little to no. I'm day and everybody applause. I don't know what purpose. It serves. And you can tell me what purpose it serves I'd love to hear you. Do people really need to come out as anything. Mean maybe we should start wearing name tag stating a sexual preference itself Bible for 2601 late seventy. And here's kind of and off the wall story. Police are on the hunt for a woman they say that once so Bos are. About her burrito. Should go about her pepper spray it started price and customers. Started a sprain in ploy to host Bryant everybody's so. Have you ever flipped dollars seems to want to go a little bit nuts and rushed drop of the order was wrong.

A mental problems past the I mean but this lady is going to court to place chargers. Toward doing it a previous time. And I mean a one year old Holland the world can you think one. And if you turn your opinion on not coming back out to get. What do you think. Up about. People who were coming out as gay people is coming out is trends sexual but my point here. And navy I'm way off place navy I'm gonna get a ton of love hate calls over this. But if what we are all to look at each other as equal and I do I don't care what you war. Why don't we have to do why do some people insist on saying what they are what. I don't I don't need to know what your sexual preference is I don't need to know what you're doing behind closed doors I just don't need to go on him. Lecture friends though lecture.

And we'll talk about it and the reason we are as I Colorado well Victoria was stopped for giving his commitment speech commencement speech because. He planned to come out the day. And I think there were concerned that that would. Take away from the commencement speech which normally you know you're telling all the students and pretty much you can do whatever you want to do. Which may or may not be true. Anyway. Is a commencement address the place to come out his day. And a question that I've I've I've been pondering now for. A few days. If we were all to look at each other as people. Which we should. Which I know why do. Is that necessary to expressed publicly what's your sexual preference. For the words of I don't view of your friend. Why don't why need to know what your sexual preferences. Well I don't know what purpose. It truly serves.
