The dolphins and it went very very disappointed about that. Oh I think it's a great idea but in terms of what you do is said for people that are perhaps war would thing about a life of crime are they gonna make that. Connection between the words they Iranians some kind of of way could be considered arcane. Add to their current language you're who will let. It requires some external explanation on a teacher would it be better it is substitute with some kind of phrase that is more relatable to them. Well I know they didn't arcade update one point one at that opportunity to get. Look at that and update us inventions that one hour. I hitters can even tell you what escalation of the images now.

I am so I'll I'll step one small step for man one giant leap for mankind what the talking about just me. About women whenever you come to Mars or does not that we reached such as mankind it.

I'm doing well thank you for all the time you've spent with as Toronto this I think the first question I have to ask you is. In terms of the human nature of the issue you guys have enters special session and ladies. Than a regular session now another special session you all have businesses. To attend to wit what part does fatigue enter into this in terms of coming up with some compromises. Or new deals as it relates of the special session. I think most men are pretty much at an op at the pump. Now the cap I can drop a Vietnam members that live. Boehlert I cannot look at it from now it may be eating it and you don't eat that would be it. That it wore a significant in my member. Petition as you mentioned everyone at the full time job but majority maybe do it. If you lit match it's just what on popular vote. But yeah we're back. Blumenthal I go to my spot. On that went on your voters well. And your employee. And don't get well note that played. Actor. Members. Did you. But that at stake it will be a week at that. (%expletive) that that do it by that it did fail. That with the priority it. Anyway this special session ends with out tax increases. Put it members don't put. Although that was a misstatement I guess I'm asking needed to do with the battle budget balanced. And the budget be balanced and every structural reform without tax increases. And now the budget for me I'll let them whatever I ever government what it. The short ball that make you getting more money and it. Well but you're spot on but we at right on the cake here well I am like oh boy look out. And it toward the hospital the public partnership. The pillow and Cleo. He couldn't negotiate. That's the monetary. That the members higher. And higher education and apple and they get via tape but it felt well. Well notre. I think ignore cute cheery income tax bracket they deduction. If you. I hope that a majority member in the late eighties it. Charlie that well. Where does a balance it now between. Tops being a hot button issue of the constituents. And taxes being necessary presuming they are to fully funded. And is there any way this special session ends with tops fully funded. The pot that those pocketed it wet. Track at the ready. To achieve. And I get that you look at it in perspective that we were they. I. Hit the fire that actually have children. Stop I had prepared by. Now on the next year. We keep our pay at the AT that met. Output to combat the actually keep people one year. But the point here. Army. Or cure that you met a look at our. That's really about.
