8787. -- we started out last hour. Maps do show but that's. Tomorrow next day. And young man who -- If you got kids to school families helping families of Jefferson. Can really help you. And I think America gets in the arsenal on here to talk about a couple things for big go to. Training session that they got coming up. Especially have children with a learning disability. But fast outlets in the pot today today we spent the first hour talking with some might teach worth who has found or stop the tolls dot org if you ever heard of course. They did the recount 3600 votes plus were recounted. But a terrible own parish. Clerk court and not there was an eighteen votes that they won by almost 36. -- the lawsuit was slows is still going forward that was the original thing. So there you -- So that they're going to court march the fourth and they have a couple of arguments about why their needs to be a re vote. On the CCC tolls and that is operating opinion poll we've had the recount on the CCC sure we have a re vote. And the numbers are they started out about you know 5545. -- the mayor. But now it's up to 6832. Saying yes that we should have a recount although army whichever revote of the a -- Of the CCC tolls. The. -- There's a lot of arguments in favor of doing it quite frankly. But will say they're gonna go to court or masks on -- on the -- fourth if you wanna find out more about it you can go to stop the -- dot org there's lots of articles. Opinions everything they wanna do that -- I got a whole bunch a text messages about. This which I'll continue to reap what we are gonna throw more stuff into the pot now also have a text message those. Swapping a tax with a packed comic today. Before women on. Hearing don't this is the text message I was just and -- teach reform he just sent me a text saying thanks -- by the way if any thing. The recount proved was that the first count was not accurate. But I do have some text messages from -- -- Because he's -- he's talking about it. Producing a piece of legislation -- -- so energetic about paying tolls are having other people do that he's gonna introduce a piece of legislation. That would introduce tolls on the on ramps on the east bank that head east. And basically the argument is is too because those apart -- -- believe it or not -- million across a room that's part of the whole bridge in the RM system. And if that's the case appear if you -- anxious to pay a woman. There we -- his focus is to make sure this is a text from him from -- comics they represented from the West Bank. My focus is making sure any money collected is spent properly on road projects and that the -- act as a supplement to and not as a replacement for the tax. Taxes we already are forced to pay. I told him I was -- -- -- -- Ernie says you can say it. We have killed a bloated bureaucracy known as the CC CD. Now we need to make sure that we have competent people doing the right thing and the right thing is improving the traffic infrastructure. On the West Bank expressway and the CC CD bridges so days ago. So that's a movement behind that does move behind the bit that the movement or do away with the told is because they were there to pay off the of their own the bonds than they did and so they should go away. Or else tax -- every other bridge. And the second reason and introduce some of these things is to make sure that everybody pays their fair share. That's in the pot I got Texan got called second thing we're up onto department opened up lines and take calls on all this stuff. -- elected officials be allowed to have a second job to make extra money would you have a problem with your represented City Council parish president having a second job. There's a couple of things this -- in this conversation one of them is an article and I hear about. What did Jefferson Parish here I'm not sure if parish president makes and they were referring also back to as far back when. When. Aaron Broussard was the parish president and why who how much they made are -- a full time politician is that enough. I mean I think there right at a 140000 dollars a year it's my understanding. Of the parish president's salary. When the state and City Council here in these parents wanted to up they're paying to like what 80000 dollars a year 86000 dollars a year. I was in favor of it because that that is a full time job and quite frankly -- I would just assume -- made a 100000 dollars a year but then you don't do anything else if it's a Tony for seven job and quit your -- job. You can't run one or two terms and go back to the private sector the same thing when it when when this of the legislature and a big stink in the general Farley if vetoed it. When they raise their own pay. You know and and ended there -- the pictures of the storm in the -- you know there. Victory salute moment their body got out raised it I got no problems within reason their pay either but they give up everything else. You know if it's going to be if you want full time pay and you got to treat like full time job and that means given up everything also certainly giving up everything. That could possibly. Be construed as that you be able to take advantage of your political office. To benefit you. I mean is one thing if you got if -- a state representative and the and that page you 7580 grand a year and you wanna sell Avon Products on the sign. Following. You know that has nothing to do with the decision making processes I don't think you know -- if you're if you're an attorney. I think he should give up or step aside from your -- unless all you do is divorce law and then recuse yourself from voting on those kinds of bills you know. If you do personal injury attorney stuff and you're also state represented about legislate or recuse yourself. From voting for any of that stuff don't even be in the chamber when they discuss take just step away from the committees if it has anything to do what you do. Otherwise if you want if you want full time pay create -- treat it like a full time gig and give up every other job that you have. So that's -- -- 226 owning 786688908. Sony should our politicians especially especially -- open the executives. Of apparent from the mayor of the city if it's a full time gig and they get full time pay should they give up. All other forms of income all other jobs shall we say I mean if you've got. You know investments that just you know -- stocks and bonds or your own somewhere properties -- some point that. You -- recuse yourself from many voting on any laws about the about the -- You know put it if you -- stuff like that where you don't physically have to show up to an office and -- make decisions a consulate. I don't have too much of a problem with that but if you got if you got -- if you wanna be a full time politician then -- live on that -- All right Derek in Guerrero thanks for hanging on your on WWL. Faced by god they just get too much -- the politicians are not by every -- spoke -- moderates -- -- gonna benefit from. Hybrid but they should I mean this is this is the go to should -- show sometimes. And I mean that in in an and an ideal situation. That that would be the case as far as I'm committed Derek is -- -- make a 140 grand a year I mean believe me I deliver 140 grand a year so look down. -- But anyway. What comment I want to make what the ball. The Christmas child play -- but -- -- great job sort of and -- big toll bridge and the should be. Dunaway where patient and had people voting on the all of these smaller -- about that bridge the -- is wanted to -- mismanaged. Managed bridges in the country. We don't if you haven't told terrible it's almost useless from China because you don't have quick actually took a toll and protect their cause they have deployed configured so that it's not that bad actually having that told me because the traffic gets blocked so that we try to out. If if that's the case should they not have. They told today and reader at every plane. You know I mean some some of armor like obviously they're just for the told tags but if you get hung up in a regular lane they should have a toe tag reader to you know. Well the problem is what you can still go through any language are told -- try to work. But the problem is people who are who don't have children get the total categories they blocked it and you can't get out. All I understand -- I understand -- and and they got impact on business nobody that a collect the money. -- Well ain't the first two ways they shut them down. And -- only advocate mutilated shut down if you have one or more passengers and you have to don't so you can't really bad toward an apparent plane or patrol checkpoint but it's always block. But people also know it's like you have the docile and hassle people. -- -- Think it through. And the police don't force anything to keep people wanted to told today claims -- without OPEC. So there is no quick access to a told -- told -- -- really country did so that it's not an advantage is it just doesn't accept him if you wanna have. -- -- -- About this before. Yeah Google the first reeling should be all told checks so that way people who. Have we don't have total change won't they took rights and not be in those first -- at all bogeys the first delay is coming you know. He had a thing -- -- is your brain itself and I can you deny it doesn't make any sense to me why they got them interspersed like that but I mean they do have studies. That you and I have forked out -- think the tolls paid for that. But what about how they did our well like how many lanes they need to have wide open if the -- had gone away. You know how would -- -- all the traffic better -- people would be flying in through those things now they wouldn't hardly slowed down to go through and I'm. I don't know why they I don't know what they do that it's been yeah I'm listening to what you say and it makes perfect sense to me. But I don't cross that bridge every day so I don't even have your birds are viewed her tour to draw from so in order. It's -- less than I've -- on told church from -- range from Canada. It -- down the east to west everywhere I was seeing back up like this bridge. Anywhere in New York City do your Jersey you know. Well. -- you don't see it often I mean there but there -- people in and out there all atomic yes actually you. You see a lot more trying to get out of the city that's when you really see things back up. They're good it's just it's just the -- and it's not that the military so the way it's set up because or it's possible. -- maybe a period made -- even include a they transit lanes for our computers which debt that was part of the deal so how are you gotta make good. They don't use federal funds to build a bridge and then you eliminate what was part of the deal that the federal government mandated. So that's what we have -- the new -- -- -- the -- should change his sudden two -- every you know so many gallons -- day you know for commuter traffic. Your -- you know but it wasn't thought out right so others can trigger and -- it is it is not here in the marketers should be changed -- -- -- got this man you know get -- -- told period don't need. Oh lead back up when you try to get across the river. When there's not there's no reason to let some doubt there's not been going on and it's a would have bet they'll. Yeah how much of people I appreciate the comment thanks a -- and LB don't get back caught up again America as an aggregate and mentoring Thompson writes his six on -- semi got to step away Charles and a whole -- attacks and more calls one and out. Two things in a -- are pretty opinion poll found 68%. To 32%. Should we have a revote. We've had the recount sure we have a -- vote on the CCC and 60% of you responding or saying yes. And have a politician's passing -- -- does he's their only gave what kind of outside work I mean. If you -- a turning tenure in the state house making laws. You should -- you know what kind of what kind of law do you specialize in and you should certainly recuse yourself and I think a lot of them do. You know but. -- I'm not just lawyer when he should should the show the book parish president or mayor have a -- wind kicked him to excel when it's on its sponsor a lot of stuff and part of a cup of coffee we gonna talk.

Charles is in Gretna on the best -- you know Charles. I'm fine thanks for call and in which think man. Okay these politicians -- so but I mean. That they whine about not making enough money -- -- -- deal and everything that premiums are. I mean if -- -- corn and they can't afford to work to do it to do the job. Well there that -- well. The thing of it is -- somebody's got to do it I mean on the downside of it again in a state legislature there were their their base pay for doing what they do they do get per Diem and such. But is sixteen grand and I'll tell you right now. I ran. I ran for office. But it was to promote the film industry and at the time I wouldn't I didn't haven't a day job like this when I did or did film and ended plays. And I could acted kind of set my schedule to make sure I was off those three months you know but I -- I mean. But I was just what's gonna run for one term I can't make a limb and I can't feed a family of sixteen -- You know I don't know I think we have put together they want about everything could get their hands out. For everything that you are treated different just it's ridiculous for me that they know what the salary is that they can't do it. And don't do it don't come possibly I want to be elected -- explain a little -- knew full well that you know didn't have become Europe's first green reduction Dominican Republic. What should days. Should we upped the -- that they can't I mean if all they gotta make as a sixteen -- You and I both noticed not all of it make well I mean they don't do video into -- they're waiting on every bit of name they've got. In that you know so. In early June. I mean what I'm doing -- almost forty years don't you think -- take advantage of the name that I built up from -- oh absolutely I got this gig you know but I absolutely particular artist. But it is -- slow I'll look at this kind of had to well it's like this I don't have my hand in the public till I'm gonna buy that argument. That's for putting you don't having -- betrayed her name because -- Cuba. I got up you know he'll run for office say look I'm a representative. You know if you -- bill -- or you want me to help you with his opening or whatever and don't give me a piece a year your property action there and I'll make sure to build its struggling. You know. Yeah well -- if somebody said at a Texas called being a public service not a job. But it is frankly I mean we aren't there I mean like may -- may not necessarily the legislation like the Texas legislature they meet every two years they meet every of the year you know. So who helps them but if if we were operate that way. It's there's no way to do put up parish president or somebody like that who's who salary. -- I mean this article came out about Jefferson -- under -- so I'm gonna point a finger Percy John Young. On loan but it it was pointed out about Aaron Broussard but I mean it pays a 140 grand a year. I think that's a -- and. I don't know -- granting here in this state couldn't get keep doing some tomorrow. Yeah. I'm with you I mean -- but I don't think. Considering it is a full time gig like that mean parish president you did this story for seven I don't think that's an outlandish salary but because of that salary you don't need to do anything else. Right I mean you know these guys are all lawyers. They're -- you know I daresay you know are among the -- -- summer doctors summer summer farmers armory and all right. -- tried to your no no but most of Malloy is a secular so yes most of my points. You know Nadal trading on the main sales representative targets targets favorable treatment blow -- bubble on you know date they get their money for. Whether she obviously -- the socially you could lead to another day. I'll let I'll let you say state that and I'm sure I'll hear about that kind of comment on this question how many letters saying that -- because it's America and it's all free speech. -- anyway Charles opry show what do you think I gotta go the news voting thing about the -- you both there for you wanna read out.

Well we lost -- The state plays into actually tomorrow we're going to be throw on some stuff in them in the pot about LSU in the bowl game. And so we'll talk more about LSU money tomorrow on the spurs are going to be assembly WW up. Read the tolls people who base their votes on how -- trafford was for the hurricane are. Idiots and did not do their homework to boost would have been removed and the traffic reconfigured we would not have that gridlock. Well I don't think he was an idiot he had his reasons for voting for I don't agree with them but I wouldn't say there idiotic there -- a lot of people out there who. You wanna hear idiotic their people who never cross the bridge but voted for the tolls because they like the lights. And they figure if we don't vote for the tolls from the lights are going on the bridge and I think it's pretty. And a sound bit you know some of those. Some of those. Kind of silly to. Hypothetically if everyone that voted against the told we're given a tank they gave him three free passage to cross the bridge. I have a feeling that the others -- a change of heart knowing about a vote in favor of the told meant that they personally would be paying for. I like that joining me in the studio is the world famous Christian -- balancing Simon reporter what's what's up. He's bug just one four communal listeners. -- league sources the saints have released tight end David Thomas and also defensive back Johnny Patrick nearly -- of course the moralists trying to -- 120. Thirteen a salary cap by march 12. They were you know about ten million dollars or so over over the salary cap so those two players that they parting ways with. I -- just that just broke what is the salary cap this year 10021. Million roughly 121. And it's expected to go to one point two next year but the -- fifteen year it's expected to go go go up quite a bit possess a new collective bargaining agreement with the TV rights etc. And what does that no respect they are -- their own 125 and I want into only sixteen is gonna really go to 130. So -- the government projected -- -- -- -- There where I mean there is okay they were talking about dumb bombs. Jonathan Vilma and Will Smith. A re doing their things and there was even talk only heard it said once maybe twice about asking -- to redo this. Now a month I it's funny borrow -- and just. I was talking to -- the ball washing statistician and we were crunched some numbers on -- reason apostle restructure. I wrote a column. About it's committee go up on -- dot com it's really. Awfully risky for the saints try to do that. I aren't everything that went through to get employ me it's awfully risky -- for the saints they could there's a way they can do to put. It really mean it increases his cap number tremendously. By Tony fifteen even bill read all about it and dividend yield. I tell you repose tonight here's -- -- before the end of the -- it should be -- school the next hour so. No I don't. January you know white flags yeah yeah -- support Steve Gleason who well I mean I got a chance to talk to take a picture with a brilliant Super Bowl thing that was that was. Incredible one incredibly brave men and this is common at the press conference there was class yeah -- I can't say it on the -- he's also he has a wonderful human being up -- nice but I don't know you still want more times David Thomas thinks that in David Thomas and the defense and I Johnny Patrick has been released by. The club of course are trying to. You know the salary cap by march 12 starve freeze this is. All right deep enough well siren started the outcome in its destination and everything's gonna scoop him up so much as usual somebody's ass on the. I don't know what is it depends but right now I think it's the saints won trying to get out you know get some relief under the cap but also. Johnny Patrick who guided -- broadens -- w.'s gonna draft and hasn't really done a whole lot I mean he's. It's been a disappointment and David Thomas contributed to have a pretty big factor in the in the saints' Super Bowl championship run. So it's all right they go thanks Christian. They'll be talking about that more so certainly on sports talk live this afternoon. With is what -- because our might be Christian and Bobby come up before -- will be able to talk more about that in the attrition and -- have come unprofor talks it would take your calls say I would love to take your calls on that for us. There the once -- talked to about you wanna send a tax comment about it I'll pass along tombs. When I got the pot right now -- I'm pretty opinion voluntary early in my town we've had to recount the CCC should we have a re vote. 66%. Are saying yes 34% of saying no. And what about politicians should they get full time pay and give up all of the sideline -- that they have except maybe some Avon north they were former Kamal -- show. More a part of this big and semi -- to be out. Okay we're back to six -- -- is our number here. -- -- -- -- -- -- And of course we the referendum challenge has not ended with -- today's recount of the CCC total. 66%. Of -- -- should have a revote if he's. Cracks I live -- -- on this and never got a chance to vote. On the bridge but I tell you I would never voted yes just -- ice. Whenever you're told what about a compromise the tolls on the weekend. Here's another text and talk about what Christian came in and -- issue. Get rid of Patrick Robinson. By the way Christian just broke that and a -- talked about it -- sports are -- 4 o'clock in Christians blog will be appear before too much longer but the saints. Christian Gary's blessings on -- reporter. David Thompson Johnny Patrick both cut. By the saints. And it's a Texan in the should occur Patrick -- and so they'll take your -- -- in the text. I'll take it put you know they're the experts on on that kind of stuff. So we'll talk so we'll talk about that at 4 o'clock when sports star comes up here. Has a traffic -- been done without the tolls the -- actually slow traffic entering downtown it is still backed up to Lafayette exit at times. Yes. CNN -- -- the stars I'm not I'm not sure. I grew up around small town and parents politics on the North Shore here in Franklin -- town council apart time and only the mayor's full time full time job. For part time. Pay and benefits. Everything that you do every every way you get this set up somehow or another can be abused and it just entirely depends on the person who sit in that chair. Whether or not they decide. To go down one path or another. And -- it's also subjective about how how you determine what abuses. But I'll tell you right now me personally talked about blow like -- when they're rolling stone City Council here Norman's one or raise their pay and they did. But of course they did at the right way and their argument was if we have been given ourselves a cost of Rio living increase. Then by now OO -- we would be at this rate you know and they also voted for it. And then had to be elected again into their seats. So that's the way to do it. You know I mean not like what happened on on North Shore Villa with a boat you know -- -- controversy of there with a Carner. Who's like paying himself 230000 dollars a year and -- -- a good -- I was second semi own salary and be a beautiful friend. But ending and it's not even a full time job be that sets that's I think if I'm reading correctly that's the highest paid elected official in the state -- only works like 48 hours a week and if a full time. A full time -- medical practice and slide down. Not good. So what should what should they be paid if they get full time patient -- forsake everything else. Here's another -- I've got the answer for the tolls give all the West Bank a free pass and whether or else pay for the -- those people. Passed on us. Rome. Following and they said that twice. And here's some more tax and -- got -- -- west we -- let you know we're gonna separate the -- traffic at 215. Now. 2350. I quit jumping this thing's jumping so much. Houston voters also voted out all of their red light cameras put -- to a Bode Miller. People who don't use the bridge were probably more willing to believe -- Andrew. When he -- -- The tolls were needed but if they. If the tolls if they use the money the way they're supposed to the people who were fighting the tolls -- argument was they were prom and the reason they voted for twenty years ago is that they were promised that whole money would be spent a certain way. It wasn't. And again pat comic state rep came on this program and said that's why he was in favor of it because they were told that was the deal. And then after at all passed then they were told well we just said that to pass the -- Twenty years later -- don't always gonna do better this time. Well where is it. Where's the web site. That I can click on every day and go this is how much money we collected. This is where we spent every day. Where's that. -- today even been been a -- because -- never been there to begin with. ITunes six -- seven is on number 86688908. Semi as I told providing 78 selling. More your calls -- your comments and more stuff in the pot next hour we'll be back this -- little gusts up more than just second Michael Morales was. -- -- -- -- in Algiers would say -- how strong. Thought that if he -- I have a couple of portions in regard to be -- even -- person or persons or you have a lot of military personnel. -- due course and religion perhaps staple your. -- can't sit home or I don't think they should have mobile computer only here temporarily. But there's still registered to vote here you know -- pay if they lived in those three parishes they had every right to the same thing people ask him why did people enormously said the say so because they almost never cross the bridge. Exactly well. Well there quotient is they're tough Murray told -- had two children one for each vehicle unfortunately number.
