Because we never treated the military nearly as well as they should be able we talk about an awful lot and do very little except for a few in the. Who can do a better job of that Donald Trump Hillary Clinton. Well model interpret one number much Brooke say one thing trump can't. Because the only. Political experience he hasn't nailed it only military experience he has as a military academy in New York yeah where it was sent by its parent for discipline. It is well known that Bill Clinton had to draft deferments Hillary quote did not have any. And trump had six draft the pro. He says those are the only two left. Who do you think it'll move to the military trust the most. I think that the want to conserve better habit that probably would trust problem. But I happen.

Consistent thing about. Should you have to have had some time. In the military to duly eligible to run for president of the legislature and call me at pliable four to six Euro one late seventy. And I did have one other text message I wanted to get to. And I can't find it but oh what they wanted to know there is. Some of these military people that receive the bonuses.

With all their permission that's the main thing that's going on with these two presidential counts one. Was a personal conversation on tape that does someone released to the media. And with Hillary it's all while a lot of private emails that were never in tended to be released. Have been broadcast or should the media. Have the right to broadcast anyone's personal conversation. Or emails about their permission good morning Dave I have a public. Service feature I liked to have you help me with our right PSA yeah you can handle that all right according to a new ball.

OK okay yeah flow now you can go to you want to Italy. He's healthy very healthy not odd no you don't wanna do it and I'd only in the town like exercise though. It's good for I'd say okay you're just making the shopper yes on the back it up in the hole it's from. It's a little bit book it's from the sub out our cash partner side story of our volley has got to be right of its on the bonnet asked the brilliant at set it was born out of a recent study of 2200 people by Michigan State University. Which for all women over fifty who had regular sex and or blood pressure but if the catch. It has to be good. We're not a lousy so now says you the benefit were only seen in those who reported high levels. Of satisfaction. And before you start thinking other things having sexual someone new law of the rather than a stranger is better for heart because genuine complexion close of the release them by higher level hormones are okay. Health always do that I would do was good and you don't feel guilty originally not at all not at all allied benefit you know get a copy of the book heavily on the bedside. Like a lot you know it's like going to the gym and once again Bob than observance from the couch right reads a book this on the book okay. The good book. All right. Could you run for president. The demand surviving an intense scrutiny of your personal conversation emails and social media. The two subjects of bin holiday that at the presidential election Donald Trump and kill Hillary Clinton for Donald Trump. Personal conversations about women caught on tape Hillary Clinton emails released by WikiLeaks I do not think that we should have the right to do any of if if this continues and you can you can do this. Don't you think that we're gonna get to the point that good people or going to be afraid to run for office. And you honestly actually it everything you've ever sort of like every conversation. You've ever had with with your mate a conversation. With someone at work. In a may be of some a couple of not too nice things about the boss. Would you want that played publicly. I don't think just because you run for public office that anything you say in the past but you should be able to play for everyone here. What was a couple of years ago can't Marmol a guy's name lost his basketball team. Because some and he said in the privacy. Of his own home. Are we up the point now where I don't expect privacy no matter where you are that someone might record that anything you say. Could be played back. I don't like these TV stations that during tragedy they stick the Mike and on that of someone's. Just distraught face and they play that back I wouldn't want that for me I think all of that you have permission. What do you think 2601878. Let's go to Jesse Joshua but you should we have the right to do this. Yeah we you have there jolt delivered right do and it's gulf the promote breast. What shortly. What should wage. Sure what you should do which would we. We will because. General public views all it is injury or a light. Year I think that the biggest differences is. But safe zone year as the idea. President and I'm really things in my other. Jokingly here anchor whatever. But I think the occurrence I would I would just say yeah I wish that it. You know I was angry at the time you're looking at that time I apologize. And anybody. On the issue. India and what this election. Where one of them. You know their party. In this election like it should not property Gmail recordings. As stupid. Or detracts. Again it's not just in politics like as I mentioned a couple of years ago got lost his basketball team because of comments he made. In the privacy of his total so are we at the point now that would ever your say and in other words. When I turn to Michael draw off anything I say that Libya secret according and then. It's gonna come back to Hartley are if if you have a conversation with someone at at the workplace and you know maybe you. May be having fun maybe you know maybe view the U. Have an off color joke. Should should you block the right whale that back. But yet you have the right and it computers are more premiums however. You Lester we either want the question is whether we should. Should do not get the right if you are two different things and I have the right to walk and a look in Austria and they are on Marshall should do it probably regularly he you know I mean it's it's it's just marketing it have you mentioned. Any sort of crisis in this world especially electronic gate is just been completely delusional. Don't have a record. On. How to respond. To you know I mean when you talk about the basketball. Yeah. So our conversation is all it would. Probably have responded in the public response to it and it's pretty you know it is ridiculous. Why why should he have bad that even be put in that position. I mean are are we at the point now that in our own homes no matter where we are you know if if weak legal too rushed for a with the president we're talking. And you say something like man. I don't like the boss' new suit you know. The loan or via personal like that and all the sudden that at three plays and and is it did you say this so we have to start assuming. That we have no right of privacy and even things that maybe we said in the past we don't loaf of somebody will I'm sure trumpet in no way. Thought of that conversation was via record I'm I'm just. I'm I'm I'm against that the media is able to play anything they want to play without getting people permission. But. That's that's that's respectable opinion I. And I would tend to agree with you that they shouldn't however this they don't have the right view. Is older or. Yeah it's got a call journalists however you know when you start on record can get deeply. You know that source and printing on all of our first amendment rights and I personally believe that. You know that they should wash your response and I think you knew you wouldn't believe it. The general public didn't just keep on news like Jerry Springer like a weird that was actually important. All right Jesse Lee thank you so much economy to wonder where this election would be if they had not uncovered all the personal emails from Hillary Clinton. And not uncover the personal conversation the Donald. Trump had on tape on about women let's go to Michael in the world is my question is should the media have the right to broadcast anyone's. Personal conversations emails or text messages anything at all let's go to Michael in New Orleans Michael power you. There are par. Well you know I mean you're there at all or. Is it should be written report. OK so you know W unit tell me that there's nothing. That you ever said. In your home at work in your car to someone. That has always been perfectly. A politically correct and you would not he wouldn't bother you all your conversations were played back. 00. Our hope bet. So are we getting to a point that even in personal conversations we cannot say anything. There if Iran or if not particularly on the open market. IPod I don't know I don't agree with that and givers and ending negative about your boss to your wife. Well okay. All right social well all right shall suppose that was recorded. And it was brought to me and that say hey you gonna feel summons up the sky Michael says and played on the year. Putt I don't think we should have the right to do. We should should not expect these. We get out the. All right Michael I appreciate Colin do you agree with Michael. Michael says anything you say you should never assume it's private and it's OK to replay anyone's personal conversations. If you agree with Michael called if you agree with me that you should not have the right to do that. Call 2060170. I'm Bob that you wanted to break for news and come right back on WW well.
