They don't go out of the loop multiple lobbyists dependent. A league that you re do you agree to tax rate yet or is the amount the super Japan. The Warren Buffett and Bill Gates in the world will not an additional senate if Hillary or the tax rate. They're not ethnic group of and you don't pay more than. Upper middle class and the working people that you've worked forty years in the company becomes CEO and sell. That the people that they warned that it's just the big lie like a lot other than Donald Trump that. I didn't make the law or been part two administrations are husband and Barack Obama. I'll ever built from them ever being introduced curveball it will go all the while super rich people pay under 10% of tax. If there weren't and and I understand what you're saying but if there ordinance goes to what a president can do what congress does is there any way it would again not a committee. If the president is determined to do it it's like outcomes about when he politicians donations for papers. You out here is your history teachers get it out. Grated on the bell curve any. Normally cheating but now poll where you could look odd question you want Uga in your book. Even one look up the odd questions. It's still. So he doesn't demagogue. Like very year that Hillary Clinton being in political power. Created in Archie was part of political administration that could've gotten rid of movement that talk. Raising taxes on average but the super rich under it under our. Our pack to turn it with their Stanford oh in the backstage and that play these games with the money in the game marketable. Sort order you know they're trying to get rich that aggregate tax not the simple. Johnny a tax attorney. On bunker and going a lot about it bank and lady called T six a one point seven if you wanna weigh in on Donald Trump's tax returns and do you think it's Smart to pay as. Little tax as you possibly can and has some problem not with the candidate but with. As a gentleman's edges now the system. And there'll never be any some substantive tax. Code change in this country that were really. Affect the 1% I think is what he was trying to say to take on a couple of different things now. The bottom of football team are now as a whole players did to protest let. Colin tamper nick. When the National Anthem was played and the school board is going to be about that two day. To discuss it and the way high school should handle it. And up by Jefferson Parish sheriff's office a group of officers are saying that's fine you know what you Neil we're gonna show our protest by not taking that detail. Annual Norman says he's sure that other police officers will take it. But I would ask you when it comes a high school players Heidi how do you balance so that if you really coach if you were the principled view of the parent. What would you tell him to do do with their conscience tells them. Would you tell me you know what. Maybe you're not old enough to understand everything yet. Or would you make sure that the you'd need to understand what's going on in this country's he can make an informed. Choice I just wanna know gimme gimme your gut instinct my years thought red you're gut reaction when I tell you. High school football teams are kneeling. During the National Anthem because they say they can't support it. Wanna know what you think of what's what should the school do about di Elmo on a road to morning or double WL. To pay back. Yeah. It. You. Bet there. Carried out. There. It is. The he. Our. I. Should. I thank him so dumb that you can always think about the high school kids kneeling for the National Anthem. I. Yeah. That. A group. There. And are. You ready to bear. In. That we. They're sort. Of October. IR OL a little bit later I'm glad you called government trying to cut you off I'm glad you called and I appreciate you listening. Have a good day RA 260187. A year when Ellman said Tommy would you think. High school kids by animal football team kneeling. During the national anthems and Jefferson Parish police the sheriff's officers involved that's fine I want to be tailored. Jefferson Parish sheriff's officers and that's fine you don't realize we're here to protected and now we do for you so who that your statement we're gonna make ours mine hunting in the detail. And sheriff knew Mormon city sure that some other officers wheels security will in fact be provided Chandra Gupta on the morning and evidently you well things Cullinan. Grew more models you know. Them. I don't see particles together in terms of him La robotic observers. Kubel in which are giving tree. Adult on the. Well you're detail it's optional works they can refuse. Well I write what I. Understand how people came pretty popular national Wear them is often. The descendants of slaves. So. BM affordable you'll black man I should not be forced good. More march. The older voters no rest you could say or poignant plea. From the chart or like all the gloom by Corey. That would doom it in Pope should track understand. That is there and produce and that the. It was submitted because of that reason I believe right that's why it was not a doubt as part of the National Anthem. Well we don't know why it would omitted but Bangkok cool technology we know within. The people shouldn't expect. So far are you what would you ever tell you pan Euro as kids stand for or. You're. You yourself would world would you decide that the nation is to your liking and that you would now lose Beatles stand for that whenever National Anthem in his. To be honest with you everything in my opening and shoot people in who understand that we opener and poor world. But that national air though it did. Expect that song you know. So a state played America the beautiful would you stand and make you trounced in for that lower winner yet. You know what is not a well disrespect thing now conquered because we're gonna what we get to steal one of the great country who live in the helicopter I don't know commitment is to. We need to be if we we need people are in who could that we pick grew. Vanessa and I'm asking at what point it and I'm just trying to figure out. If you are horrible problem out from where. They played America the beautiful tonight. And your kid is on a football team or soccer team and you were there would you stand for that. As of yet they have no. Disrespect that was given to follow people so I don't have a problem with. So your problem is with the song itself not the conditions in America today. Are probably what the recur or are the problem in America. All right so you think it would an on an argument is don't crossings are trying to understand so. If the at the National Anthem we change to America the beautiful. Then you'd think that would be a step toward. Improving your relations in America making everything all inclusive and in the and you would stand for that because you would feel as though. Even though everything in the country is not your liking at least that would be an important symbolic first. Anger major should be. Done. So again just to be clear. The primary objection is to the song enough conditions in the country or both blood. That's where it's heavy wanna the other right center. To be honest with you you know what it's unfortunate but a lot of what happened happened in the position that mark and this war. Mark when apple look you know in it people wore on these people will happen to people understand how minorities all black. It. Thank you Cedric and I. Have a good day a net is that in on Collins and bunkers ready you. Call Ian. Then just major text something in that you you don't. And moderately like it's ought to be you know David during the news a lot of people. Nobody can see you don't realize that I.

It's not limited and people might drop out of their pocket change mania this hearing Anderson Arlington aren't I the other day city from a hundred dollar deal. Right outside a store. Yeah DD. On this now turn to god importantly I want to hear gas. To be some think Ian yeah U yacht goes out aren't they went ahead I did think about during the break is that if you have young man here. On the bottom football team that will not Snee and during the National Anthem which led to reaction by. Officers not sing you know within a football game spine. And is your new Norman said he sure that you know there be other offices that'll take. Now we got a pair. And I just wondered if a young man. It Eddie Jones local team. Doesn't believe in the country enough to stand for the National Anthem. Which is their right a gang I mean subject of the school's rules. But if this case. Would they care enough about their country to sign up to fight for that's a good question. Because you know you look at what happened in go to World War II museum. And the lines in the people that were underage like all other boys aged sixteen year old is even younger audience. And I just wonder if we were attacked. Would the country suddenly be worth risking your life for win a day before you would even stand efforts National Anthem that's. I'd like to note six so 1870 banning good morning Aaron double WL. Any.
