A lot of work on Friday event. Three of the suggestion. Kind of went downhill I think the number one on those to me is just doing market for the weekend yet.

And that this is classic rock that -- -- and bang the drum all day. So there are all right. Yeah there's so many more to go and I'm sure you will get a that's the of those suggestions that we listen we're gonna have to find one more we found deploy it which is one hour ride them. In the meantime text mediate 78 avenue -- -- know what don't you think is appropriate for fry today is and lost on this one about about governor Bobby Jindal suggestion that cannot rid of this state income tax. And replace it with a higher sales tax -- couple different ideas. Some people say -- raise the sales tax one point something percent -- an -- as much as 3%. To make up for the loss in revenue program the would be state. Incomes that we don't wanna be broke at the end of the day on this but the idea of not having amassed with high I don't know. There was a little cheer that went up and parts of the newsroom early this morning when those came out soon. Maybe people like it. Lot of people anyway. Ads are. You know the arguments for -- mean more business for the stated it'll attract more retirees for the state it's very business friendly very retiree friendly actually Bradley are the people who make a little more money. Yes it is that is true it's considered a more fair tax by many because everybody pays. You know based on what they -- the more you buy the more UK I'll spend what you pay. But other people complain that it's regressive meaning that. The -- If he'd -- As poor people pay more taxes are currently off. A income taxes more programs that means that wealthier pay higher taxes. As sales tax is considered regressive in that. Even though haven't paid the same amount based on what they buy it is it more a larger burden on the poor that is. The income tax I guess the question is do you want the port paying more they would some people call it fair share and -- on unfair shares -- We'll put that out there should the state of Louisiana get rid of the income tax. And charged higher sales taxes -- other states like Texas really get their body out of higher property. But don't talk about that in Louisiana days ago thank you David there about fifteen minutes.
