Landed on earth at any time in the past but that he wouldn't be shocked at ET's did one day visit earth. So do you think there is intelligent life out in the universe.

Yet when you talk when you listen to the majority of the interviews from Fort Hood. The the residents who were living their right now -- say that they would feel safer.

Let's get back to our 020 wait wait wait before getting back the Paulson got to tell you about the history here. It's happened in Dublin. It was a mix up in daylight savings time that it may have caused a car bomb to blow open the place. Of the bomber the unidentified bomber was seen fleeing from the were incredibly rule and Volvo. On Sunday evening while dripping in blood after the device. Was attached to the vehicle went off too early. It would appear the bomber got his timing wrong he could be a case raiders didn't put his watch for -- on Sunday. And the -- went up tuition. Sounds like a road runner episode let's go to -- Franken matter how are you frank. Yeah they. Are blah and let -- Economic times. Well -- Call. And an immutable things have picked up to appear. But confident that shouldn't be. What weapons you wouldn't be. Here in the states. I feel my personal opinion coconut from the outcome that. Were the guys you know in the -- -- content that election. -- and his weapon that people are people pool and -- office. Shared. If you combat experience. You should be tried to weapons or. You could or should keep it. And told of the -- something. -- that would make sense which is to. Accept continued punditry would be each. World war. And Gloria -- common carrier or known that the comic. You know a lot of people showed -- committee. I mentioned during the first part of the show the while miles was. But my son I can't remember how old he was I don't know 1012 years old he talked me into going on the while most. And I thought I was going to die I thought. Well we wondered dump them. But I'll go -- out searchers return to normal and it sure. There's -- zephyr I was OK on the server but the while most I went on a one time and he was laughing and having a great time I got off the while most I was I was just. I was white as a sheet I kissed the I kissed the ground not to -- and I will never go on the ten. And the other thing is that Bill Clinton okay. Football. Let me let me -- people until they know we talked about Bill Clinton. Was on TV last night and he said that. As a president of the United States that he he reviewed all of the Roswell papers. And he sure no aliens landed there. But he wouldn't be shocked if ET's did one day visit earth and you wanna comment on that. And it. So -- also -- So would you say it is it may be they word he just wasn't ready to. So -- keep it. If you want if you really gonna tell -- right. I mean really like you know on the military secrets occurred cleared up and oh terrible all these years you come out looking until everybody else will we really -- Well. Well that was my first thought I am I know it's a Jimmy Kimmel said did you look at the neighbors and actually what he said what he had. He had the paper of review he didn't say that he looked at him and obesity had to pay bills. Reviewed and found no clear evidence of aliens. Existed he added but he wouldn't be shocked if intelligent life exist outside our planet or even. If ET's one day would visit earth and you know my first thought was well if this stuff was so confidential. If that law -- I mean let's place and if if if if back in the fifties. If we had life here from another planet that type of technology it probably scare people so I'm sure that this. There is some type of all law that those were in the -- we don't even know about that says that these presidents who see this information cannot reveal it. While I mean you can -- common sense while Japan all. -- -- not -- reduce hours. The -- that -- on television. And -- -- me you know it's. I'm innocent. Caught you and say OK so the league -- And you know but what I want to make for our. Enjoy children. Is -- -- didn't want to emphasize again the comments section. What are we wouldn't be skewed in Vietnam. Which weapons -- If you come from. Afghanistan. And you're treating. Combat veteran you and you can you know in Afghanistan. Saying they carried a weapon of -- can't predict your kids under the truck. And I think it would be in contact with a quick bit. Do you think if more of these guys carry their weapons and an event like this happen. That they would be able to stop the report went too far. Because obviously. The guy -- so long but he could color what yeah -- -- Yeah it would install. -- -- -- So if he can keep that keep -- -- the plight. Of the people concerned and. Right and they say that he took himself all. As the military police approached him. According so you know he's taken himself out of the equation. I'm pretty Hillary -- much to people who couldn't defend himself. So yeah. They should. It weapons. All right prank I appreciate -- calling. We have a lines open to secure a late 7866889. OH seventy let's go to apply Colin from the parish -- -- I'm not I don't -- declined. You remember a punch train beach. -- -- really. About it. Yeah I use the gritty guys did break some law -- out the first real abruptly cars all that stuff. I used to love the bumper cars. Did. What what's the scariest ride that you were either on the punch train beach or anywhere. -- -- The zephyr. While -- more frightening to me than the -- In there because everybody gears up. So club what do you think we should do with the -- Six Flags location New Orleans east. Look at at at at at. His -- down -- now. -- you know -- -- walk conduct all backed and that the. You don't think there's any thing that could -- we have talked earlier. About the uploading a new amusement park there and then maybe have a section of that the dedicated to -- punch train -- -- so. You know we can go relive that people who've visited New Orleans and have a taste of what we had. The only eight update award -- hotels in the gas station. Yeah that's about it all right other than that of the -- or can flag to flag flown twice so I deal. But I do it. That's sort given a monarchy kids. Hamid that we need to get about the -- school don't flow they go to college graduate college and do everything right. Through through life. Out you know it should lead a -- something and desolate. Well let me explain to people what we're talking -- or just punching and you all know CNN Anderson Cooper. He said that our early on in his life has mom Gloria Vanderbilt who. Had a an incredible fortune told him that she was leaving him nothing. And he said that. Motivated him and he thinks that if you get too much it's in the mission of soccer that's that's how he. Well explain that and he said that he was very very glad that his mother took that stand that he wasn't not going to. And inherit any thing because it gave him a greater incentive to work that you believe and and iCloud. I'd do it to -- point you know you don't tell kids not that you'll be good parents yeah. It does leave alone and -- year ago they've finally capitalized. But arguably parents that does spend less just so your kids will have more. -- out of that built our tax -- -- -- child abusers they don't want. Not a subtle you know need regular -- -- -- and better did that did all right you know you know I don't trying to awful you know. Well. Let's see I'm not I'm I'm at the point in my life where I want to enjoy my life. I don't want to deprive myself of anything but adults bin of foolishly you know I'm I believe that. I have to be a good Stewart with the with the money that we have. But but I'm not one of these people -- if if I want to take a nice vacation. I'm not going to think oh that's gonna take too much money out of retirement and when I passed on I have to have money for my kids if there's anything left. That's great. But but but I'm but I'm not going to I mean I know people who say well you know. I would do that put that -- the -- of -- and money market. Retirement fund and I'm I'm trying to I'm trying to have a lot of money to leave my kids -- I don't live my life like that. But I agree -- he would -- about it looked at about two out in the military. When you tell you travel anywhere in a world free I didn't know. Oh yeah when you -- you get in good anywhere in the world you want. You mean when you retire from the military you can go on any airline. Any number military. Oh OK okay. A military base lagged it from here to Frankfurt German boat caught it plenty Torrealba. -- I'm I'm all for giving our military people as many benefits as they possibly can because. I started something a couple of years ago. And if I see. Someone in the military uniform I just walk up to them and I -- Iowa thank you. We're serving our country and I stricter -- -- I think that's something that people ought to think about doing. Devices so the idea that not attacked this year and 63 years ago. That yet been known to. Can that nobody -- And what did for the weapon like that before it -- really. About. That -- yet impede on base they got the -- -- in cash and weapons on base. That union says that the outlook -- you know around Oden though I disagree. So should we have more and pays. What do we do to stop these these these people. What goes you know stop -- people let. You know basic. They need to go to council -- I want to count on issues like -- You know it got into about just simply counsel law that it had doctors -- -- Well you know I I I thought and I guess I based a lot of money on. My opinions on what I thought was common sense it just seems to be that up all these men are trained. To carry weapons. That it would help security if if they have their sidearms and you don't agree with the flow. No because usually used as a maverick and a weapon of what what first start fireball that. And thereby stop fires -- one person who -- it. Is going to be accidental fire as it does help that. All right Clyde appreciate you -- and well Bob no problem let's go to Wayne and -- or how are you lane. I'm -- Great subject today or maybe. What -- -- acted to a look -- -- -- you know it was if it was such a part of of of all of our lives here. The with the rides that the -- but the while miles or even even earlier we were talking about about some of the food remained. They had these cheap old beach burger hamburgers. That weren't -- great -- and you know it had to be probably the lowest grade meat you can you can probably get. But boy when they threw those grilled onions on merit of it at -- -- it it was. It was a it was a great place was a great place -- ago. Well it's like. It was. Created it was. Pull out of out of autonomy in the speed. In little would -- champs and on street between bill. And circle you that. We just tremendous -- -- but it is. -- -- and I would. And and we just need the public long. Now those women. Tremendous limited to me.

That was the collegiate that was a place to take your prom date you you you scored points and you took your during the Bally. Put it out what you try to use our spotlight. -- well I would agree with impeached. You know would you grade the hole on at all or was really. At the top law ought it -- mean you have to cut coming to light at a young age. Any older it's cool. Because there was a lot of -- Yeah how well -- main. And take all the knowledge. That I have right now and go back to and I was you know like. Much early twenties or something like that in and and live my life from them because then. I have some bush and more knowledgeable know what's important and I know what's not important know what to enjoy what not to what did you. I would look at it from one thing we would -- -- -- the moment. And what you -- like just like the finish. And it would have looked a little as you all. Look. At it and -- your. You remember what when you would do that. Every now and then you'd be able to finish on one look and you you you thought you hit the powerball -- -- -- -- -- -- They inlets of the wind you know. -- would want to you know run or really.

Looked -- security and -- the law. And order. You know the ISI feels sorry you know from my grandchildren because. I grew up like that and I was able to -- punch train beach and then take my kids there.

All right and I'm Bob Mitchell filling in for it's -- tonight. Our big 870 pretty -- opinion poll question after another fatal shooting at Fort Hood -- the time to change the rules to allow military personnel. To be armed while on the poster could have to vote at WW dot com 74% say yes. 26% say no and it really has been kind of amazing how many military people we have had call in tonight. Who were really against this. And here's here's a text message. That says Bob. Twelve people in uniform all liked all armed one as the shooter who you gonna shoot all twelve to be sure you get the right one. I'm bringing up some some some very very good points. But you know I guess I guess not being in the military I'm just looking at my opinion would would be the obvious I would. I think I would feel safer. And when you listen to it watched the interviews of a lot of the people had been interviewed at Fort Hood. But they all feel -- they would be safer with the people who were trained. And licensed to carry handguns on base. So I don't know again not being in the military at at at this point in time with those that call we have got most the military people. Believe that the that a -- in tonight. Are against -- and I guess we'll just leave it at that lets. Go to that's going to vote Linda Linda power you. Lydia Lydia power you Lydia.
