You hear about. But show thank. So 170 is the number here -- thing. All of this back. Our website and read this -- -- there on the rumors of my death are greatly exaggerated he's finally back. Medical basically have the deal -- I appreciate you guys joining me today. Couple of things in the pot here let's get so set it up here and and take your calls got a bunch of calls and emails to call us and hung onto the brakes -- I'm going to our country just -- second. OK first off there was a banners homeowner and he shot a -- late Friday night. The man broke down the front door of his house and barged in. The homeowner gave chase with a gun to the house in the burglar fled out the back down the driveway and that's when he turned. And pull his waistline according to the homeowners for the homeowners think he had a gun -- -- now the homeowners being charged with manslaughter do you think he deserves the charge. -- was it self defense. 2:6 -- -- 78668890870. Is our toll free line. I had chick foray on a former. Prosecutor on the federal level and on the state level and now -- met our defense attorney. And basically I mean he's he's he's like any other attorney and that's what they get paid to do got to get down to the facts and we're. We're basing our conversation all just a couple of news reports. Okay. So we're trying to hit all the bases if the guy was running away and they got shot full on the back well that sounds like manslaughter. But what happens that the guy was walking away from and goes I'm going -- on -- get my friends from a come back and kill your whole family. What is does that does that change the name of the game. Was a guy actually it's turning around and reaching for something when he got shot is this the story you tell me up ready opinion polls about this. And 90% of you say -- self defense. A man who shot a burglar outside his home charger manslaughter to deserve it was a self defense and 9% of you saying self defense. And I mean we had a couple of callers here just like you know what I'm so. Tired of being ripped off I'm so tired I get broken into -- tired of the gang graffiti. I'm trying to stuff missing that frankly they might be a little trigger happy to and check for a -- up the dirty Harry. Attitude. But the bottom line is you know did you did you did you feel threatened -- -- What is this guy doing -- in my door -- and in my house leave me alone we had a conversation last week about guns and gun rights and whether you should Norman not. Leave me alone and you never know why even have one. Leave me alone leave my family alone don't try to break and in my house I don't know what I would do I tell you the truth. It I don't know frankly if I would have chased the guy out of my house if -- left my house or not. I'm thinking and the farthest I would've gone Seattle have a driveway -- distant front in my house on my driveway is short and just goes to a car port that's it. Then I got a big -- Osama Hassan don't have a driveway feel like one out the back my house and run up to -- it don't work like that tomorrow. So I'm not sure will be a different set of circumstances from me. I'm venture to say that if he ran out the -- in my house I would run out and see which way he was heading. If I could get a description of any car he got into. But I have to say if if I went outside and he turned around and put his hands to his waist I drop him. Would like it but I do it I don't think you know but again. Anyways so what do you think 26 Sony 7866889087. And the other thing that's an apart right now and happened during the show here. It's a judge Joe what's his name Roger Vinson. Federal judge he has ruled that the Health Care Reform bill is unconstitutional. To judges have said that it is constitutional including the a federal mandate to purchase. Health insurance. This judgments and then another judge are both saying though federal government mandating people buy something whether they wanna buy it or not is unconstitutional. This is the biggest one though because this lawsuit. Has 26 states attached to a more than 50% of the State's I don't know I think it's just states I don't think there's like. Any of the territories like Puerto Rico or going on. Are on the -- -- anything like Arnold I don't know I don't know if they can't or how they would be but this is more. I mean we have fifty states and this is 26 of the State's more than 50%. Have signed on to this lawsuit and it has been ruled unconstitutional this is one more step pushing it to the Supreme Court. So one of the questions I asked about this whole thing was. Is this gonna I mean do you agree or disagree with the ruling of course and I had a caller Troy who disagreed with the ruling. But the argument he brought up sorry -- it's just doesn't it doesn't hold up. You know the state mandates that you buy car insurance if you want to drive a car on the -- of Louisiana the state mandates the states don't even mandate. The mortgage companies mandate that you buy off. Homeowners insurance until you pay off your mortgage when they have no more say so on your house. Then you don't have to buy any kind of more in an insurance at all. That's up to you if it burns down well then guess what -- got a charm -- a -- Apollo rumble if it floods guess what. You know you got nothing. Once you pay off fuel and that's one of the reasons why so many people on the Ninth Ward got screwed because. There houses have been paid for for years and they didn't buy insurance because they want mandated to buy it because you can't mandate it. So there you go that's the difference so the first thing is do you think do you agree or disagree would judge Vincent ruling. On the -- constitutionality of the law and number two. Do you think I mean all this is the push it to the Supreme Court do you think it will get to the Supreme Court before or after the 2012 elections us a year and a half. If they do try to push and I'm sure the Supreme Court will consider expediting it you know. They've got to you know what the Supreme Court is either gonna accept it like. This year to make sure -- heard early. Because they they come in the session and not enough like the first Tuesday October suddenly -- the first Friday in October -- like that. They're either gonna accept it and hear it like we're gonna hear about it by the summer. Well they're not gonna hear it until after the after the 2012 elections I think because it's going to be huge -- gonna weigh heavy on the presidential elections aren't. That's what's in the pot to six only 78668890. H seven is our toll free I'm gonna step away are gonna full call boarding a -- emails.

But the that the thing evidence though as -- her -- argument is why why why do I constantly have to who. Do this why is somebody else have more protection that's that's why you got an attitude like Jennifer's and -- I'm just gonna shoot him because I'm just fed up.

Well that's why needs to be reformed is just this is I don't believe that the right reform. I know what you -- saying. This also you know what look aren't just looking at this point. There is. What -- stop talking about 59 million people who don't have health insurance OK. All right some some album. Regardless don't want it whether they get sick or not they don't wanna but I gonna make compliant. This what are your -- let me finish my point I'll ask you a question about 59 million people out there who don't have insurance. How big of -- clueless that because one of the ways the insurance companies work. Is bipolar and all their money to pay for everything because the majority of the people were -- are not gonna get sick. To the point where I mean so everybody -- and talk into all into a thing. Why do they not pass a law and rules so that you -- across state lines so that these 59 million people confined to a pool instead okay. And although although all of I use dry cleaners before. All dry cleaners -- small business. A small businessperson. Wants to buy but he can't because -- small so he's got to go but if every dry cleaner in the state of Louisiana can pool their numbers together they should have a big enough cool that they can buy affordable insurance and pay and -- covered of people that -- -- -- kinds of rules. If you're -- -- create their people and understand that Obama did a completely and it stayed on June. I'm out there intimately to be fair it can't hurt don't get -- In theory everything but we're -- -- -- -- -- -- equity here come on work -- is what I'm good thing that you got people. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- If you got a bigger deal the brickyard I would blow look up. And that well. It is but it's okay if you look at would've thought it. You can come here don't okay. Don't end up and Peter yeah yeah -- look at the end. What Sonoma but it didn't -- well I didn't know well couldn't duplicate it exactly right you you go to. Will soon be here like beard didn't do it who don't have to do to correct picked it up with an open me I would be killed okay. Damage you know what they passed a 2000 page law. That they keep that number one Nancy Pelosi said we need to pass the law so we can see what's senate's number two. He -- the president did say that the State of the Union Address book before the November elections for the no member elections he said the Republicans can come along what is but they got to sit in the -- right along like they got on the site. Not so now I mean what's which one in my supposed to put more weight on his work. Who wouldn't -- -- -- I'm -- Democrat I'm not a republic is okay independent -- he looked -- what is country and we got a little bit. And it that we got because we wouldn't know it yet there they couldn't pin anyway -- -- -- -- you can look at it. I'm gonna I'm gonna go 00 home defeat. If you look if you go to Canada you go to pay people who -- -- got some booed when it couldn't be greater foothold that don't look like -- up. But thank you got out everything okay cool we. I don't wear -- did exactly where about this debate that we might get and what -- If you -- the other equipment that they were all a quick -- -- the whole not notebook computer. A quick note. We don't. They're doing we could go okay we don't like -- -- we don't complicate what is Oklahoma and a couple kind of myopic and collect all the culture. Well yeah well the Palin -- okay. I don't -- our -- go. To but. I don't think it's great. We cannot come that we help. I understand an ominous -- -- -- same and I got a broken amend I gotta I gotta go -- them up against the clock ominously on the same arguments before. There's no way you can pass a law this big and have the consequences hitch in the face and I think you need to do this much. What's this problem fixed then and see what the consequences are. This so many different things that are involved in all this. And if this is such a wonderful bill how come 200 different organizations and companies including three of four different chapters of the SE -- U which backed the president big time in the election. Why are they getting waivers for this particular care. If it's that good they should not be jumping off the bandwagon they should be banging the drum to get on it. So they shouldn't be any of these organizations -- any of these waivers. So anyway that's my point my answers the call I appreciate it thanks sort of thanks for the lively conversation to a 601 -- semi backward mourners what's around after the as New Orleans has the French Quarter the big 871053. FM and WWL dot com there. Bunch of movies that are coming to town there are always looking for extras that. You haven't signed up yet you should go to Hollywood. South. Here's a website where you can sign up to put your name on -- Melissa try to get as an extra on different films. Hollywood south dot in -- in G dot com. Hollywood -- pass the Hollywood -- or just Google up Hollywood south casting. And that should take it does a Hollywood south casting database Hollywood south dot NI NG dot com. -- -- I always give people ask me about that. So there's still several list bunches of films and such lined up to come here. They're always looking for extras you should sign up put your name and your face in the database and you know I mean. If you're not what they're looking for but if you are you -- whatever but if your interest in doing that you should just sign up for it that way you can. Who knows you can be and -- and every film that comes down the pike to 627 is the number 866889. 0870 is our toll free lines get back to the phones Nolan uptown some Olin thanks for call and in our Namibia. -- -- And I don't know where no one went slow. Who's next. Katrina. They know best and thank. You make a -- thanks for -- Okay calm moment like a quick comments about -- for the health care yeah. -- Obama I don't think that it should be mandated for people should ask you buy it. Com -- me how we tape -- 5000 dollars a year and -- -- and my husband we've been -- eleven years you've gone to the doctor twice yeah. Oh yeah and another -- efforts and their property until -- actually group called the mine and we'll look at the -- 812100. That in the year. And they had paid out -- for cleaning -- puncher. In my mind I'm thinking -- -- -- thousand dollars a year. But twenty years from now you can need a whole new set of dentures economic what you're paying for is. So that's my argument whether which employs the risk and unfortunately sometimes you pay for risky pay for wrist and all of a sudden. The oh here comes the situation and they drop you. That's when the government supposed to step -- So when he compared to that because now I'm older you know what my job that I have -- -- insurance like everyone -- but when I was when he. I was in between I'd just gotten married and I was in college so my dad I got -- I actually just -- -- on health insurance. The twenty had a ruptured yet. I went into the hospital for two weeks they're -- change at thirteen thousand dollars. At that time which would probably fifteen years ago when he. Comes. We will her family if you were below the poverty line which time at 181000 dollar. We were both on college both work -- And we made below thirteen thousand. It'll be like like Spain. We could not afford health insurance we had just gotten married I was them between packets being dropped my dad hadn't thought about it I was twining. Chile hadn't prepared for something like that that couldn't work. So whatever it is a step then. Everything was -- away except for the actors bill so we allocate a few thousand because we couldn't. -- it was. We qualified below the poverty line. Show. You know Frist is like -- This this part of the bill and I -- know this I had cancer the only other -- this part of real good idea of being able to stay on your parents' income to you Tony six and Eagles last Republican idea. I didn't know that I -- -- but I think it's a go further than that I mean look. You know when you're dead in your mom I come from a family of five kids. Okay sort of seven of us are not in my family my dad worked for the states -- -- state insurance right so once I went to college yet boom they dropped me. But I mean. Somebody who works for a private company and you purchase insurance from them it's just like the guy called before. Howard what was it. The more people who work in the pool. The more that's paid into the pool and the bigger the pool this with a bit more money they have to do people. Why cannot not stay in and pay on this -- to an increase the size of it. Past the age of 26 you know some -- in that argument about how big how how much. You have to have going on in the pool at. Extended that way but anyway I got on that I got a subway got a new trap.
