Up I believe they should be taking care I have I have a cousin. And because of diabetes the lost both of his street okay. He also has a child that's partially took artistic.

And I'm going to learn something and I'm a different trade and so that I -- in the future that I can make money because I don't want the government. To take care of me and and he's my hero okay he he really is and and so he he has done that. His his wife all went to work at at at a Wal-Mart. And because. His wife was working at Wal-Mart. And that was eighteen. Well a little extra money ball over of the disability money for awhile. They would not give him his artificial limbs because they said he was making too but only -- Robert -- -- if if they have taken the the road of saying whoa wait -- work at all animal that the government supports that would have been okay.

Knowing. That your message would not be found 400 years -- on the got to think about Kate. What note. Would you put in the bottle and when we come back under the tell you the story. A -- 100 in one year old message was found in the bottle that finally made its way home -- you can put a note the bottle. And say anything. And it was going to be found 400 years any idea which would say and -- anyone ever been like looking into the attic went to -- these -- sales. And found something rarely rarely. Old a picture of only 7866890. It certainly Bob Mitchell and let's go to WW oil and our phone number for you to get involved in the show if you wanna add your two cents to what we're talking about -- 2601878.

Fund in the message and bow of you're going to beat Tennessee about Iran -- would you know always hoped the fine. A 101 year old message in a bubble finally made its way hole. And old beer bottle containing a postcard dated may seventeenth 1913. Was pulled out of the Baltic Sea by a fisherman. Writer of the post card -- twenty year old Richard plots requested that it be returned to his address in Burlington. But likely didn't expect the bottles journey would pick 101 years I guess it was portals. You know just those spur of the moment rank things where you wrote in the new season along it if you'd taken to return to. Most of the white in a post card could not be read and do the war damage. Well except. The part to have the bottles sent home in the -- of the card. Also include two stamps in the beer bottle so way over file that would not incur costs on the back to -- and even the stamps. Would be classic. To have -- 101 year old step thought you know maybe for the rest of the night -- think about it. And if you could put something. In a bottle. A -- -- -- time capsule. And you knew it wouldn't be found for a hundred years. What would you put -- I have thought about that and I think I would be. Just surprised. I'd probably put there. If someone is reading this note.

Is there there there well through a lot lower there and born and go out here are. -- -- -- -- Leo you know you don't. Will you hang in there Fred and one more question before you leave RU four. Or against the Bible being the official state book of Louisiana that's been proposed right now. What was. Considered pretty. You know. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- That could actually don't like yeah yeah. On the Baptist. Sure didn't capacity in the churches should do recovery effort that they can venture. All. Are you. You know. I'm completely all the Bible I don't know what the Bible and he. Eight boat group -- and urged. That eight. Better buy things on Bob order. But what I talked to a -- last hour and I said. What I would like to see is all of our state officials all of our federal officials. A live their lives and govern our country well according to what the Bible says though that that would make a big change in this country. I don't know whether we need a state ball. But. And general I don't know if people think about Louisiana they alma ought to publicly thing about the Bible -- -- think more about food and music to now. -- it is about and I adored in Louisiana -- that Jack has failed so I'll give people put in order to dial oil and and enough. Did you go to -- French Quarter for -- this past weekend. Well you know like. And -- do not work obviously the war now and not work for a country to know. Army in the few buildings shall we review those slow. Four -- the -- -- -- Over there. An entry. We know that. Unity. He -- not good now back when I was in the middle of the girl do you should. In management and so -- -- -- political. It'll put it to protect. I do find it incredible that I cannot I understand is when I did get a text message earlier about that we we have a deficit and and we have to pay it down but it's it's like the government right now is looking for anything in the world that can possibly. Taxes on and and attacks people. On perks they get in and where it started is that. There're there are some companies. Some big companies are out in California. That. They have cafeterias of they have. -- with with in their building and and what they're trying to do is they're trying to make it easier on the people figuring. First of all would become to a gym their thought is if if we give them free gym memberships. They're going to be healthier. And it's going to cut our health care costs because. I don't know if people really realize it you can be on a health care plan. At your particular company and have a couple people get really really really sick that can push your health care up. So they're that they're theory is the fact that. Things like. Like like serving healthy food in the cafeteria. Things like having a June. At the workplace that people -- news. Is going to keep their costs down now the government's involved you know we might have to trade and tax you on that. We'll let you know that the line. If you get your. For -- Britain are our government that we have but it won't hear that it did go out -- to provider buying or you leave your money. Of course. For there were playing parties and I can sit -- and -- -- -- -- vote for a. You know I I don't know if you have heard earlier. I'd mention about that well yet you talk about the message in the bottle. From my message would be if someone is reading this I'm surprised that the world still -- existing in a hundred years ago. Yeah. You know. Watching on well and questions to build but yeah. Not -- no matter you know there among. Again. -- the -- situation it is. In an apartment bird. The administration in awhile while -- or all. Of their Olympic. -- I appreciate you voting in tonight. A rights to McKay in Gonzales our UK. I know I'm good I'm. I'm englishman that your Shelly. Well thank you so much what about UK RU four. Or against the Bible being the official state book of Louisiana. I'm against that because the Bible as you know Marshall well you should not leave may stay both. Am I gay characters. Using our congressmen. Have better things to do that drop pops up like this it's. Well I'm I'm. I'm all four of the Bible but. I don't I don't know -- we I don't know whether we need -- state book. -- -- Is now there aren't enough on that commission has made clear on social security. And you do now war. I'm paying 480. Dollar a month house payment yeah. I don't war. I cannot claim that tree house and some dollar interaction. That I have I got mine help. Because you don't work you'd -- intellectual right. It's -- war commute outcry in the interest starting out. I don't agree -- that. I gallery everywhere and it -- I don't know I don't I don't think you're correct. And in other words if if you if you're collecting social security and you're paying your house note. That has been has nothing as far as I know -- be attacked person is listening in Macon called correctly but as far as I know. As long as -- in other words the money you get from Social Security is your income. And you pay taxes -- an income at the end of the year and if you're plant house note out of that. Any interest that's part of that house note sport taxes as far as I know you should be able to deduct. So you know. Outbreak actually gotten the SARS scared -- ending the year with that I'll make that. Right but if your pay enough house note with a your income. And then I mean you need to check puts some on that because the this as far as I understand that. That. You issued that interest and in other words it doesn't matter where the money comes from interest and taxes on your house -- our tax deductible. So I would I would check that out if you get a chance of someone. Well I would probably candidate. As far as dying you know I couldn't I couldn't yet theater well. It it it it depends on whether your itemized in your taxes and in other words if if you have. If if if you're only living on social security and and now and nothing else. And you are itemize in in in in order to take the -- -- you you have to itemize your deductions what they might be telling you. Is the fact that your income is so limited on Social Security. That you don't pay any income tax at all so if I am so therefore you're not paying any income tax. You can't deduct it because you know you're not pay any taxes with nothing to get back. Yeah obviously I can't I can't -- I know. That I dogmatic cold -- Abduction but. The well. Not -- medical is as a percentage of of what you make but what month. So what I'm saying is the fact that you may not have enough expenses to. No it's not what I'm saying if you aren't paying any income products. Or you are you paying any income tax at all. Okay well you're not paying any income tax. You can't get anything back if you're not in income tax. -- get the only get a refund when you pay income -- I actually if you war. Right all right Kate I'm pretty well -- okay. John I'll get to you in a minute if you take part our conversation. It's 2601878668890870.

Well that that the Bible's very simple do and others you have them do unto you I cannot imagine any of any faith not wanting to go by that. But that's not the only thing that has -- the Bible. While we're talking about the Bible as far as being an honest and doing the right the entry on treating people the way -- would -- you'll love the politicians. To treat you the way you'd like to be treated. Yeah I would want that -- on any book. Now what I want -- pretty confident that we're backed by other. And -- on -- on rhetoric that book the.
