David leg AM today as you know we're gonna do the phone lines here and open lines because I think a lot of people have a lot to say Ian and I give you some idea starters it'll bid. Those tanks on the events unfold in France last night the way and you begin look at it. Given the fact of everything we've been through in the last ten days the country has been through it's like we're being attacked from the outside would pull ourselves apart. Money inside up. I try to find something to divert my attention and I and watched Nat geo story about Mike the polar bear whatever his name is. And I spears name it and the first thing I find out as Summers now six months long for him and starving to death is. And the global warming global warming and climate change whatever your call it. But I thought that this might be the ideal way just to take a little 42 vacation. Authorities track and field color you red tires ya the area. But we're he did get fired hitting really good. Just know we needed to go back to a happy time all. Employees didn't change your world but it butcher made us a lot happier Jon and banners higher under the W on the morning. Eight John. The eight on how you are more. All right it's Irsay had the events. The professor yeah on made a lot of good points you know one of which is that we are bombing extensively. In Iraq and Syria that they Jeter's that the US is dropped 40000 alms in the last year there and it's having an impact it is. They can do things like this any time. And think a big risk as people like Newt Gingrich chew well. You know throughout these. These ridiculous ideas. The church and the dedicated extreme that's what they honestly answer when asked if they believe NG. Are you a Republican or Democrat John I'm a Democrat I'm a Republican I'd met Newt Gingrich talked to him he is smarter than you and me put together. He knows mullah. It would disarm only so much about this John as he knows that night. Accurate he knows it so why saying it that's just stand a little crap that we're army when it comes solving the problem a lot obviously it was a rhetorical question. But if you know Muslims were also touched dangers extremist we'd be having that tracks. Everywhere every city they'd be killing people what present level over the well the world and was wondering if you were here in New Orleans and baton route I mean. With one point two billion on the the world I think they control the world by now. So and that's what disappoints me about this is you know it's hard enough just like if you look at the situation with police and black man crime etc. it's better. It's harder to solve that if there's an and I think the cult John if it is. Mike Edmondson told us yesterday and boy imitate what we have been up on a podcast somewhere Jordan if they wanna hear we talked to colonel Mike Edmondson yesterday. And he put us in that room with the president is there were heaven. A meeting I guess about crime in and black man in the police and police interaction with the community ideas suggestions and that's were definitely worth listening to but it you know I just hope that when it comes to solving problems like this. We can just get out of the politics of me and go to Rome be by yourself come up with a decision because this. Is grandstanding like Newt Gingrich is saying that the samples solution to a very complex from element that is. Against him he adds a layer of manure on top of what we already had to clean up and it's not helping to me can't we come back I wanna hear from you at 2601870. Tommy Tucker double WL eighteen so Mikey sexing me saying please Tommy call me they give me their numbers suppose a ringing next week. And I think though the weather's people got a lot better telling you what it's doing the and show you what's happening right now as can no disrespect to window. But in terms of next week that'll depends on tropical weather and an entire earnings would be fine 20% chance of showers and then. When it drains his and while you'd you were under the 20% so we shouldn't be more than net. Talking about and another Texans insane and I need to stop taking up for Newt Gingrich. Stop digging up format called him out in every way I know. Because he is very Smart man. But what he said last night which is silly that you should somehow we should test Muslims in this country to see if they believe venture real law. And monitors them in mosques. If I asked Newt how audience and a dues. Kevin good morning or double WL hollering. I'm just you know like Gavin when I saw the thing last night I'm not afraid of terrorists I'm not I look at this as a problem. And a look at it is okay. How do you fix how do you stop it how do you keep everybody safe. Is I don't know about you but I oral live like they do and Israel I don't have to show my papers every time I go from parish to parish. It is blow up Paris is averaging a one point county to county bomb the state to state what have you I don't have to do dead in any even with all of that. In a gunman surge shooting at a restaurant in Jerusalem not too far from I think police headquarters in a couple of weeks or months ago. And I had Kevin tell me about your hopes fears dreams aspirations. Analysis. I'm listening and. All manner we shall shall admitted it's unbelievable. At first. Here comes from audio or are not able to understand. Or know when. Once. A year and understanding what you were. There last year. Having said that I'd note that in the military background we would only. Back in the only part. Decade. That we torturing. I understand. The religion. Just on the it's. As well. Kevin hang on I'll audio more about this summer give you a lot of time because I wanna hear what the military the US military right. Strange you. How they train you what they told you in terms of the Muslim. The Islam religion and then people at a Muslim right and what branch of service. I gonna hang on Kevin. Telling you this will be back at 720 months announced related traffic on evidently. Seven Tony five Tommy Tucker talking about the attack in France yesterday were talking about this all morning long and and 84 as the latest. Guess total and they had some grenades and things in the back of the truck. Some sources are saying they were fake others are scissors anymore real maybe some unreal. Some are more fake wood heaven right now because Newt Gingrich last night's that. If you call Islam a religion of peace it's baloney. Baloney I Kevin so was in the army in Iraq. Recent well how recent weekend. Packet the on. The general went on I would order third infantry division. Out of Fort Stewart Georgia that we would be operation. I tell me I am not trying to diminish users gleaming Arianna and I know what the army tell you about about. Islam and about Muslims. All right well. I understand. Woods you. Luckily religions like you wouldn't trade christianity. Just because you met that it agree that. It. Which Sunnis and Shia. As. I understand it should. Lot or exactly. March. Two. Under the banner of do you know on each. Other color though look at. It's an opponent. Seven go back is only about an assent what did you use and. Why should operate. Like. We won't. I can no umbrage on hold we're gonna straighten this out design wanna go through this slowly. With you and if you are in the military I would love to hear what the military told you. About Muslims and about those. That are. A member of the Islamic religion. Because Newt Gingrich is saying in light of the attacks last night. Anybody that believes insure real law they they should be checked. And every person here who is of Muslim background. Should believe should be tested to see if they believe that your real law and and they should be supported. Now how you would do that I do not know. Constitutionally. Would that be. Legal I don't think so. Is that a slippery slope and a dangerous precedent to set testing people either a about what they believe not necessarily act on. Dumb rule or beat. Having something to do with religious beliefs. Because then and I'm not try until to link the two year but I don't think it's a far stretch to say legally. That. You are okay pro choice or pro life and then all of a sudden and I'm just taking this to its nth degree here. If if the party of either pro life or pro choice skits in and there's a precedent established that if you believe certain things. Well then all of a sudden you'd you'd can be deported I think that's a dangerous thing you get started here in American that's not the way. That's not the America I would like to live in when you put it that way a lead being said there is a big problem. And I think mortgage changeup ready jaguar opinion poll here. To. Is Islam. A religion of violence. Or something however we could phrased it to reflect Newt Gingrich's comment. Because he said that calling Islam a religion of peace is baloney. Some of the text we're getting here. Amos Tucker good morning we have eight. President that is McClain is it's not so good you'll unidentified enemy Islamic terrorists seasonal leader do me a favor. Imagine of my favorite present were alive and presiding Ronald Reagan. Will he do in these times and you can read this text. Good day Acer well I did read the text I said good day. Mom. But I don't know that. Calling. The the enemy and Islamic terrorist I don't I don't get dead in the first place because it's all about what you do. If you how you treat the threat that I don't care you referred to fuel. And may be amiss and that Japan attacked says limits the number of Muslims and come to their country their few Muslims in Japan. They try to protect their culture talking about the Japanese Vegas. From. After you get the Muslims out says this next using that method you can request that everyone knew as an unregistered weapon to turn it end. Sense. Gun registration is going to work that easy also announces new really is a dumb person. And then there's a Sobel would be your suggestion Tommy we obviously have to think differently. And it may have to be at the cost of certain freedoms to protect your family. And I and I think. I don't have a guest first off I don't know. But I do you know that I don't wanna live like they do in Israel with papers being checked constantly everywhere you go from here to there where you on what you do when. Yeah Hoosier daddy usual momma where where'd you grow up those kind of things. How much secure how much liberty are you willing to give flop. In the name of security and would you accomplish anything other than just giving up your liberty. I'd like to note too six 18787. Will pick his story when we return. And again I just want find out what the US army tells soldiers. About Islam announced that it W offers news and I would go to David Blake thank you David Blake. And just gonna make a comment here unique to stay out of this will a story Bozo on our website thank you David talkies soon the hum. Jefferson Parish shooting in Jefferson Parish and the person we shot. After allegedly attempting to Utley that was run off over police officers this story. The description of the person that we shot is. The a white female aged forty. And if you hand and he needs you can again as just an observation there and number of reasons to why. But if that description had been. Black female. This would be a national news story I would think Kevin now finally quickly. IE any army here in Iraq the two army is telling you. About. The is that Islam rule about the Muslim religion no Islam religion and they tell you what because Newt Gingrich said it is not a religion of peace so go ahead you sitting at the visions they got. Sunnis they got Shia and Kurd as Mormon nationality picking up from their pleas. All right their cards and what. And then they people. People believe in no problem religion of law and yet you sit on the lecture. I don't know if you know different chemical agent. Because you know like what they would go out for one reason. Right mustard gas and Chemical Ali did it for which he was saying that was a weapon of mass destruction. Just to put it in context he'd known. Right right so anyway there's there's been. Religion at the point. And being actually. What we're calling. People call radical Islamic terrorism. Followed. There's actually a law that would come. Soldier and then all. Of the paper on. They're not sure. And I get a net. Well and police is ridiculous that a whatever you wanna call what we can do limit back. We'd all out into the country illegally. Ordered. Sergio is that refugees coming in we can stop that what they do it here in and that can't and who's coming into the country. Seeded the only issue and think Kevin and am glad to serve the country I appreciate literally get on another it has become a phrase. But at some time his whereabouts rightly and I and I don't mean to do that because you're out there you were eliminated yet the I guess a flea collars around your way strikes try to keep the sand fleas off Ian. Yeah I do it's pretty gone and. And I appreciate that honestly doing anything and we made a big sacrifice to an in use in. You do you do and you know you give you didn't have a voice and with the mission wise you signed up utility Tillie do. I don't know yelling woody give him. How you stay expects you to give up your own liberty at home some of bitten. And then the hopefully you'll be safer is there any way you can bomb your way out of this. I'm I'm open. Let's have a four give me a solution. 2601878. I think I know the solution I don't know how we go about bill and go about it non team we come back Tommy Tucker double WL. It is 74614. Before eight. Here in DeVon WL and Tommy Tucker talking about the attacked last night in France Serbia it's 31 year old French Tunisian. He had previously been convicted of the petty crime he opened fire before the police shot and killed him Lotta people in the crowd on gunshots were. Fireworks from the Bastille day celebration. Obviously big thing in France and they don't know whether guns and grenades in the back of the truck were. Fake or not I don't know how fast the truck was going but he did proceed. For a pretty good ways to kilometers I think it is. Over aim one mile at least and just continued while people over and tellem to Americans a father and his eleven year old son Newt Gingrich saying that. You're gonna have to just test everybody here in this country to see if there they believe ensure real law or not in if they do. And deport them that's gonna involve a lot of monitoring of mosques etc. And he said Islam is not a religion of peace that is pretty jaguar opinion poll you can. Logon and other WL dot com and cash she wrote I'd really like you to call me though. And talk about it. 69%. Are saying that religion Islam is a religion of violence 31%. Are saying no Clarence and cut off the morning or double WL. Good morning army. I would like to go view. You city's legal understanding you don't know the Utah salt as well. I think it's very sit support army. The first double dare you question Islam is not. Religion of peace. In the coral and it clearly. We will double as in bill. So they are not a religion of peace forcible. The second thing you know if you know why Great Britain. He knew. Only one. They got so that they could call that border David Cameron war tool from the borders at all. Table it themselves. Because they in nineteen countries and pebble principal. Or critical organs in your future that's gonna. That's what the United States meet you. From the 1933. In 1954. Call it rituals are not broke they are not being forced army. We Cole called for in thirty degree fit export middle emea. You want and keep yourself from it (%expletive) what people like doing. Or you borders. It infidels. That's how you protect yourself. And that's you protect the United States matter enthusiasm we. Now we built it we went indication of peaks to did you seek out brands among Chilean Fidel. That minority believe. So we would be in that they'll get there you are exactly correct. Can use battle cam with the but delicious like yeah. They're not. Use that term in L interchangeably. In panic confusing and touches me good Clarence continue please. Now. We have school borders. Like I say there's nothing wrong with immigration system you need to enforce the law. And the immigration system works. Told us that you would bring and getting thousands of refugees. What would say. If you and that it that Ole wood 200000. And he'll clear it wants to increase at both parents if she's elected. Does that sound like borders being protected EU it does and so that we need to army and all he's doing is inviting trouble. That shall we do. I don't exist. In terms of the Orlando shooting you know they got it was born here in America right. Absolutely so what you do now about people that are already here how would you do that without. Somehow. Having a negative effect on your freedom in this country is they say. Forcible I don't want urged. Bogeys in taking care of the problem you demean the guys at this particular. No problem that it shut up you and only year. Well actually your question I'm. In the in this post a million questions. But listen. Pressing problem right now. Is an influx of more. One thing you know or. What we now first in what is an an Ole Ole me. Clarence it's not a it's not what if I'm Tony and again it shut up and nightclub the latest domestic. That terrorist attack the year. Was my dad was born here that's on Valentine's. I noticed. The residential. School boards and we would have won and you can let you and your plan money. No no no. Problem what Garnett to achieve question. Maybe. I would not that he can applaud insult to do it been not been and a 200000 that came here. Maybe maybe east excite. The rest on that B and brought it. All mystical problem wanted to. I got to Clarence it 84 and half minutes and 52 time now data beyond traffic send 582 before a Clarence Basra and CNN mean to be. Couple of people most of Meyer agreement means fires Clarence goes but it. I just. Sometimes on duo with very simple solutions to very. Complex problems and and everybody's entitled to their opinion but if you just close the borders are. They guided that went on the attack. In San Bernardino was born here and again it was nice shot up the Orlando nightclub was born here. And I and I you'd tight Heidi. Close all the borders of this country I really don't but it Yemen idea of linking differing EB Clarence I apologize it wasn't trying to be rude but. You know from now on I'm Zoellick letter body of this says. What it whatever you want wanna say whatever you think is solution to this problem. Veterans. I at 260187. I don't think is mom is necessarily violent religion I think if you look at in the if you quote the Korean it's one thing but it's yet. Would the Bible you can find some pretty horrific violent things there as well. And I guess it though depends on how you interpreted. The gentleman before says that the army taught him that Islam is not a violent religion by nature of the Alison would you think that's a pretty gentler opinion poll we will continue to discuss we come back.
