Are. This is John Hancock. Other other other way are as Tuesday as we can big. Your lap around the building it's the little toast bielsa. Not the world is ending on Saturday so loved. Just look you know early so you have arrested today and Wednesday and Thursday Friday this kind of flash forward do we get up early Saturday or late Saturday TJ or do we know is that. Just sometimes Saturday. Now we're pretty sure this is Oreo we've gone through these before but so we're we're pretty sure this is the one. So while I am personally am pretty damn happy about it. I didn't really wanna have to go through another three years of the trump administration is just tedious just tiring cents a that I disagree with everything used to and it's just tigers could the United Nations today it just tiring. So if we can every induced every distended all of ballad pretty much solve everything wondered health care. I nuclear war. A global warming. Yeah I don't know maybe maybe that's the solution. Torrealba yep and it unedited and hurricanes. So what was so that's her out Maria is. Maria is more powerful it would seem that our minds somewhere is and Puerto Rico is gonna take a direct hit. And Dominica is just kitten slammed her got slammed as of the last nine. Now what the Caribbean and prime minister. Also mind boggling damage. And Maria's go into areas that are arm has already gone through and not torn up and I don't know that the whole lot more a terror up in some areas like say John and places like that but. But Emery is hidden and those areas as well she was a downgraded to a category for our earlier today but then. Got back out of neo waters and now she's back a category five again. Extremely dangerous category four or five hurricane wallet approach is the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico according to the national hurricane center of a a state of emergency has been declared in Puerto Rico which is expected to get hit tomorrow. It got. A glancing blow from Burma and not say that it still didn't cause some damage but does this once boasted just Neil Puerto Rico. And the models have it kind of going north and so but it's way way too early to get. Comfortable with that. So we'll have to keep prion that as we get into the early part of next week's state of emergency is also been declared for the US Virgin Islands were a Maria is the close to saint Croix. They'll of the suffered the least damage were there muscle. In some cases the islands that. Kind of avoided had the catastrophic damage from armagh are. Maria has taken Carol. Remained under thirty US Virgin Islands those president as you know there you think yourself wow I could live here. To should be a great place to hang out and it is like code that is anybody that's fifty years old goes to Hawaii either did run into some people that. Have just thrown it all away and moved to Hawaii and there was a guy that we met when we were down there are 1020 years ago. He was a former financial advisors some borrowed. And he was doing the bike runs up and down are down not volcano on Mallory. Yep bright early in the morning and you go to the top of the bell kit volcano you're in Hawaii. And it is like you know. 48 degrees. Cold as it can be in you watch the sun come up stunning. And then you get on a bike you ride all the way down this volcano on a bike. Not to the ocean down moral. Now they they quit doing those for awhile because I got to be two dangers. And and when we did it. As we were cruising on down the volcano are singing to myself. Because it gets scary sometimes. Then didn't I don't think it how can how can every tourist that does this not get injured well apparently some do. But that's also we went through a little town called pay ESP. EIA. And I just before you hit the ocean. And I've just gone through town I knew it was like an old hippie tunnel look like boulder back in the 1960s so we aren't we got back in the race car and headed back up to PO. Turned up to one of our favorite places problem. But we asked this does broker guy who picks up in the morning you know what is his drew us and so on and so forth and I said well I can do I can retire from radio Sunday and I could come down earnings again you know why you sound just like everybody else. And apparently there's a there's a million people that go you know they did do that. They bring their houses out and had the State's who they are retire they do and they go to Hawaii that are gonna is gonna throw it always loved the carefree life you know take a part time job doing some thunder and he said very few can actually do something about it. But he was digger and I assume he still probably over there. We've same thing you go into the Caribbean and you get on these islands we had dinner one night in saint Maarten on the side of a hill. Helio is no jail or something like federal morals called. And kind of senator we we've met somebody who would come from the states and it opened up a store there and you just thought I would there's more than life. Once thought about all of them in the last couple days because all those people that are live in the lifer probably. Homeless. Business looks. Carlos. And if you're down there are just living the life you're not make it a whole lot of money. So you're probably insure. Billions lists. I was what's better than them all are the update on know they and the world over sort of mystery about to send to congress. There's only a couple of days left there's probably stuff you wanna do what what do you wanna get done before the world ends on Saturday. Like to get my lawn mowed. While I want place to look nicer. And and aliens shouldn't have taken under you know don't. Talk would dice that come out of the earth stood. Sees what we've abandoned our David made it. Is a neurologist. And a self described researcher. And he says the world ends on Saturday. Our September the 23 it is foretold in the Bible's book of revelation as the day a series of catastrophic events will begin and as a result quote. A major part of the world will not be the same. This is all reported in the Washington Post so it's got to be true. The Bible prophecies. A woman. Quote clothed with the sun. Think I remember once. It's 1969. It is. Bigs or believe. And I've crown of twelve stars giving birth to a boy who will rule all the nations while she fights off a seven headed dragon. Another woman according to this main duty is to constellation Virgo. Which on Saturday will be positioned under. Nine stars and three planets. So there you go there's that part of it. And that is perm popular mechanics. So it's got it must be true. And I got popular mechanics and the Washington Post deny that. And the baby boy will be the planet Jupiter. Which will be moving out of her go on that very night. Do you need more proof. So what is says that very night so I'm assuming maybe we've got all day Saturday. According to meet he says he's studied astronomy. Had an unspecified university in Kentucky. Washington Post. Popular mechanics. Song university in Kentucky. And the great changes and our world will be the result of the arrival of new big hero. A famous or planet famous and conspiracy circles. In which astronomers. Say well actually it doesn't exist. But would you agree to do believe a bunch of astronomers over this guy. So what David Morrison is a senior space scientists at NASA and he says there's no bureau are really on a collision course with earth we'd have seen it by now. But. We hear all the time about. Comets and stuff that are flying past the planet that agency. I don't re edit how would you know maybe this is a stealth. Maybe this is and then maybe this thing's made of clear. So I made the original guys this is the world's gonna end on Saturday points to the fact that September 23 falls 33 days after the last month's total solar eclipse. I'll. Are to believe it's been 33 it is is we put those glasses out one on hung in the parking lot and and that's proof of his prophecy. Jesus also lived for. 33 years. So the out. Till the world ends on Saturday. So I don't know what you wanna get done by then but it's better start took. The other girls in their into the world. That's where it. Starts with a earthquake. Birds and snakes and Errol plans and when he Bruce is not afraid. And yeah. And the. You can tell us. And lust we'll probably get a little bit later on video world and there's sure Christians in the world to never ever been before. We're losing our religion. Comes would this be the whole REM. Showed today. It into the world as we know oil closing our religion. They could say and prayers last night at the City Council meetings. Which there is they're doing in no reaction to some other legislation or some other rulings that have come down now from the courts. They're growing county or all that was taken place. But to do with Roy and county. Was that that they were. Only promoting one religion Ed bed that's all they did work Christian purse. So they didn't allow me. The idea of Muslim prayer or any other our faith. Opening up the session and that's so. It would seem to me that. As they are prone to do. We're overreacting. And then why they do it now. I don't know. Noticing how under you're done was something you're just done whether it. Take for instance. Tall I don't know mayor Roberts. Just done. Just just done the drivers were last Tuesday we said no thank you. And and so now I hear are doing explanation or some non and I just saying now I go please. Well. Organized operator something. The the mayor it's hard to City Council last night ended this longstanding tradition of starting its meetings with a prayer. And and she'd go Roberts told the audience that they there had been a meeting with attorneys. To discuss several recent court cases and and the separation of church and state now before the meeting. And so she says we're not gonna have an indication as me this evening we're going do I change the way that we conduct it on expert advice of our turning. With the concern over freedom of religion separation of for a church and statements from recent court rulings. And. Beat the via the attorney about Beckham. I don't think this is commented on. Well on that boat and emails to council members. He said that he had. Contacted the media about the mayor's announcement may suggest to be clear I have not concluded. And have not advised that the council's invocation practice is unconstitutional. And I did not advise you to in the practice. And the problem in the rowing county case was that the court found that 97% of the county's prayers were about christianity. And in fact if I remember correctly I don't think Perot and carry case was even open to someone of another faith. Coming in and doing a per. So that that's where you run into the problem is if you promote. One single face if you have a government that's wrapping itself in a single faith. Com the establishment clause. Doesn't permit a seat of government to do that. So in rowing county according to the course they elevated one religion above the others and aligned itself with that faith. And although that faith is the one that I happened to choose to that's doesn't make it right so that was what was happened at them. And the City Council meeting last night and why they picked now to do it. I don't know I heard some people speculating earlier today video his political. But I don't quite get the political. Aspects of it. Now there was an article that came down a bad news survey on the religious beliefs of Americans. Out this would've been. Early September on my birthday the sixth. Public religion. Research institute. Sees a dramatic transformation. Taking place a cost across the country in regards to religious beliefs. And and just for starters. White Christians no longer make up the majority of the nation and well maybe that has something to do not affect it edited it's white Christians but maybe don't. The lowering of faith and christianity and and many faiths. As a little bit to do with some of the things that dog has today. Seemingly more people that have no conscious whatsoever or can take someone's life without thinking twice about it and they'll all be. The lack of faith based. Or parenting I guess I'd be about same thing when it. Anyway we'll talk about religion and American just sick. They're. Hackett religion in America they I think it's funny thing. It's funny I got a live in a fairly shallow minded world when I was a kid but you know moment and just give me a. Very Sunday morning maybe Promos in you gray slacks and go to church. And as many of you know my dad became an episcopal priest when I was 26. That's a longer story than you wanna sit through right now but that was a little bit of a transformation to. But anyway in my foundation has always been opposed to fill in church and now I'm and I just had a thought everybody was Christian. Except for the Jews. Which I basically are heard about when I was kid America's those for the bankers. Start this elect Scott Vermont. From Massachusetts. But you just die I don't know you just always assumed. That eight year ended christianity was always gonna be the majority. But a long shot. But you know you had done you let other UN other assumptions then that you always thought that. Caucasians were always going to be the majority. As well that's bad that's already changing as some states and it's changing drastically in the country. Saw was some of the assumptions that you grew up thinking about you better think again and no religion in America is changing kind of a big way so we'll talk about that in just a second win over Arizona Tom we're talking about Davos. Neurologist. The world's gonna end on Saturday. And this. This new diet. Diabetes type two diet that I got diagnosed with a joint. And been bad. But I'm unify if the world's ending on Saturday that means Friday night. There's a punt Augen does in my future. And an ice for instance and one and notre and Burt white bread I may just sit there and just eat white bird enjoyed. Explode. I am smoked in fourteen years old ground by OPEC's interests. And we told TJ it maybe I should fly to Colorado. But it's the world's and they don't need to fly to Colorado does cedar. Do it or want here even if you got caught not going to be around for the court hearing. So. Addai out I don't know I'm getting kind of excited about the into the world unknown on Saturday it opens up so many. So many things I can do another area near in the interim now there's other parts of that at all kind of my granddaughters not born yet she's due any day. And be kind of a bummer not to get to know her. Kind of a bummer. Now. My dog's sick right now also. But I did the world and so now we're network but kind of more. And and in my Christian belief it's the world ends then. Susan iron into the same place so that'd be good also run and my dad again I'd be cool. I don't know how to weigh this. Positive negatively whether or not the end of the world as good thing or bad thing. What about all the money in my 401K. And I hate to leave that behind. Tom here on WBT hi. Page on enjoin you showed Europe great man out radio Powell out fairway and thank you yeah belated and I want despite this in a serious way. People have been talking about the world amateur and Ian are thousands of years. But I tell you this and and it you can dispute now certainly hang up and let it beat. Or any person that. That'd be in their world no more merit or no Lloyd Chapman a low rent it noble gift jar O'Neal no more not that everything well. When you've got best in the world what you bring down. Let's into this world. Bombing that are you know written. On her no. Not if you have faith not a few are not if you all believe in something no bigger than what we're all low limit and you're not if you all believe that this is just. A deep wage to us something better. Pride and and in reality. I'm not I'm out by Obama I have a master's degree in divinity but when you do that. And some eyes world ended that day while we're out what your radio skill is born grow. Some of the Cold War ended and it alien debate tomorrow and even before austerity. And that disturbed. Not so sure we made any progress on like all. I'm not so sure I quite understand whether or not he has any. You believe it everlasting life. So my best friends do not. I was had a thought on that and general orders her way occurs over a period also understand that if you're raised that way from the day you're born. Then it's. It's propaganda to some extent. You know I mean. Otherwise why didn't I brought to be Muslim or. You know I was raised episcopalian I was raised commission and so that's that's that's my comfort level but I don't or whatever. I've always. I have told people about my dad if you if you believe in what he did you'd you'd have to be happy Horry is right now. Then the downside of that is if you believe. And and mostly christianity just for example. If you believe in that and it turns out not to be true. Well. No big deal. But if you don't believe in that and it does turn out to be true. Well there can be some. Pretty serious consequences. Now there's a new a major news survey on the religious police of America public religion research. Institute. And they talk about a dramatic transformation taking place across the country into big takeaways from this over a 100000 people. They did and you know 2016 white Christians no longer make up the majority of Americans. Now it's 43%. Down from 81%. In 1976. Which is about ten years after her migrant my parents for making me get out of bed and know put on the issue gray slacks and go to church. And fewer than half of US states have a majority population of white Christians less then. Fewer than half. And knows where to cut down assumptions I think that. Caucasians made. We are all. You know well you better you you better start being nicer to people. There's the times they are changing. I in twenty states according to the survey people with no religious affiliation outnumbered those. Of any single religious affiliation twenty states people of know what religious affiliation. Outnumbered those of any single religious affiliation. Religion and white America is dying. And why is that. Because we don't wanna get out of bed on Sunday morning. We wanna see the pregame showed of the unifil. But don't wanna get out to him after get dressed and go and under church and and do all that stuff and Saturday nights. Which they do we you know a lot of people deserves is on Saturday nights or Wednesday night's. Well that's just not convenient either. The priest or more of the house. Could you can you just drop by and. Say hi. There are things Goldman move on to the next. House and then we're that we're. Religion and white America is dying while religion and nonwhite America is holding strong. And they say expect that continued the religions with the highest percentage of members ages eighteen to 29. Our islam's. 42%. And Hinduism 36%. Far higher than white Catholics 11%. Y eighty villain evangelical. Protestants 11% and white mainline Protestants 14%. Non Christian religious groups may be growing but they still represent less than 10% of Americans. Jewish Americans are at 2% Muslims buddhists and Hindus or 1%. And all other non Christian religions amount to about another 1%. So non Christian religious groups may be growing up but they're still represent only about 10% of all Americans. Out of white Christians still make up nearly three quarters of the GOP. They constitute less than 13 of Democrats. Down from about half ten years ago and both parties face big challenges with the religious. Shift that is taking place. President addressed the UN today we'll get to that disable the over or Taylor kit on WTA kit. Yes. Congratulations on your induction into the role playing thank you. I spoke with anyone who has her own bubble had that this puts you right up there what Jesus now well. I'm not so sure I believe either one of those I'm pretty sure one albums adds a little later on its. Well anyway that diploma U gravely damaged but that that would be the Jewish religion but it but the important clarification. Well I read all the work you were well aware read about this gentleman who was. Projecting. The end of the world can save beauty and around the physical world we could be the end of this world as we know. Can you maintain that this is going to be the beginning of the end or beginning of the end color. He says a major part of the world. Will not be the same. Why. It if you read further into the numerous shortly. Which sold by the way the garden. Well I just went out he. Who. Well we're we're we're right then just at the time my oh we've run into this we've had fun with this did not this particular guy but it. I mean the end of the world comes down merit every two or three years and then and then what and then they correct themselves and say that they must have misread the. They Kamal come Obama knew very I mean the first one but I recall in the nineteenth century would gentleman who. Intuit interpretation and you're going to hear rapture gathered just walk on to a rock and waited for awhile. And led all I got the wrong date down there and rapture turned out to be a Blondie song. Record so different we probably do better then potential. Paid out but you're just won the that not redirect but. Just qualify that. EU EU saying this isn't going to be the beginning of the end parched. What ever call every church we've achieved so I may still be stuck here so I probably shouldn't get off my diabetic diet. Well look you know even matchup the world toward a former Berkeley OK so you know armed armed gonna move right true. Yeah. Well OK I'll go all see on the other side. Her job three. Why when he messed with his birthday or about the rest of her birthday is. Well I got mine and one that I wasn't really trying to get him. I was I was Rwanda just to hang their worth actually it's the first anniversary of my deal birthday. That the real work. Odd the president today I find this fascinating. President today. Addressed the UN. And you could tell he went off script a couple of times I thought I thought in the first half of that I thought was excellent. He looked good he looked authoritative. He stayed to the script tee but then all the sudden he got further and there. And and he referred to a Kim John owners rocket man like you did in between day before yesterday and I'm just not so sure at the UN that you necessarily wanna. Now he's gonna do things in a way he wants to do woman and that's sort of the way it's going to be and he doesn't conform to the way that things have always been nor the way things are supposed to be here. But he was pretty he delivered his first ever speech to the full united. I'm nations general assembly today. And neither man's words about North Korea or Venezuela or. And and in any used his new nickname for Kim Jong-un. The north's nuclear arsenal threatens the entire world he said in the US must defend itself. Or an ally. And then he said quote we will have no choice but to totally destroy. North Korea. If the United States must defend itself or an ally. We will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. And then a little bit further and do us a speech he used the new nickname that he has or Kim Jon and adding that rocket man is on a suicide mission up for himself. Not to me when Marty mused that I thought to myself well that's kind of an inside joke at all have those people in that there UN assembly don't know what. First of all don't know that he calls a rocket man because that's fairly new for him anyway. And second place probably don't. I don't know why they were all learn headphones there's listen and Elton John while the president spoke. Trump called the a nation. It was speaking about are ramming called I ran a rogue state labeled the nuclear deal struck under the our President Obama an embarrassment to the United States. Hinted that the United States might eventually declared Null and void and said in this were I think he went. I think he went off script preset I don't think you've heard the end of it believe me I mean when he say and believe me. His speechwriters didn't but better enough. He talked about being at putting America. First. Which a lot of us kind of wanted to hear I guess but he also set I will always put America first just like you who the leaders of your country's. Should always put your country's first. And many talked about rogue regimes. And he said we meet at a time of immense promise and great apparel. And it is up to us whether we will lift the world to new heights or let it fall into a valley of despair closed quote. And then he added the scourge of our planet is a group of rogue regimes. And the best line he had amplifying all of that today I thought was. If the righteous many. Meaning most of the decent nations represented in that room today if the righteous many do not confront the wicked few. Then people will trial. Don't know all the ins and outs of all of this but 01 of the breaking stories to. Two. For the senate to pass legislation this summer. With a fifty votes. So there are so much top senate Republicans. With this last ditch effort to repeal obamacare. And it's gaining some momentum. But then again who knows. They don't have a lot of time there's a deadline at the end of the month for them to be able to pass repeal legislation with only fifty votes so that's one of the reasons that there I mean today's the nineteenth right. So lob. John Thune of South Dakota who is the number three GOP leader in the senate. Said of senator bill Cassidy of Louisiana who's leading the effort along with Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. So when John Thune said about the he's the grave robber. This thing was Six Feet Under. Close quote. So there's three attempts by the senate to pass a repeal legislation this summer and they all failed and all fell short of the fifty votes and a Senator John McCain cast the deciding no vote on the final one. And a new legislation. Which just started last week. Would replace much of the Affordable Care Act it would block grants of money to states it cuts Medicaid. It changes how that operates. He it would do give states wide latitude in how to spend the block grant money and it would also let them set their own. Coverage requirements it would allow insurers to increase premiums for people with preexisting conditions and ends the mandates that require most Americans coverage to workers. The our Congressional Budget Office. Wouldn't have an estimate ready until. I guess the end of the month at its at its very earliest. But that would complicate things. And Democrats obviously and doctors and hospitals and patients denial bunch of people coming out of the woodwork opposed to the plans say millions could lose coverage. Chuck Schumer. President's new buddy. Our agency Nancy Pelosi get about cholera called down yesterday in her own state. Hello when she gets flustered. You know she was she was all a Tizzy yesterday. Chuck Schumer said that this new healthcare. Proposal is worse than the last bill or slash Medicaid get rid of preexisting conditions coverage and it's very very event. Politico reports that so far the bill has sale hard know from our Rand Paul of Kentucky and you'll recall that he actually voted for the last one. And then you got senator Susan Collins of Maine who who opposed to previous repeal measure and doesn't seem like she's committed to voting no and no on this one but. She's expected to do so. In fact what is the latest and just found out on Maine a couple seconds ago look at your view your browser key votes are still going to be Lisa Murkowski. Susan Collins Rand Paul and John McCain. Our Collins is the main Republican who voted against repeal bill earlier and she says she had a number of concerns on this new proposal including the fact that the bill would restructure Medicaid. In a fundamental way without considering the ramifications and four main. It would be a one billion dollar less first funding over a decade and now people with preexisting conditions will also be hurt so wrong. So she's not necessarily end and Rand Paul today called the bill another big government boondoggle. He eventually back to GOP bill this summer. But he'll look like he's on board he said this isn't a repeal this is keeping obamacare and re distributing media proceeds. So this is not a repeal bill this is sort of pay won't take obamacare and replace it with obamacare. But we're going to let the states have a little bit more power and how we spend it so he doesn't seem like keys. He's on board an Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. Along with columns and McCain killed the final attempt this summer and she is undecided on this new proposal those float around the senate right now. She told reporters what I'm trying to figure out is the impact on my state. McCain complained about the rushed process he repeated his issue from the last time that he wants legislation to go through her regular order and he said I'm not supportive of the bill yet. We need to talk more about it. And and it's as good body it's it and it's Graham's is. His good buddy it's kind of behind all of this. One of the co sponsors of the legislation is a McCain's closest friend. Lindsey Graham South Carolina. So rob. And he's says State's governor of Arizona Don Doocy Doug Doocy. He's endorsed the bill which increases the pressure on him. Political said that senators Cory Gardner of Colorado and Jerry Moran of tech Kansas and Rob Portman of Ohio. Said that they need more time to review the bill. So are none of them are willing to either say that there are solid yes or a third no or whatever the case it would kill legislation so anyway that's that's where you are at this point. Rush was starting about this little bit earlier candidate showed said he had really gotten into it today because. Eight in wanna go all that way just to find out that it was. Going to be another Trojan horse to do you don't know but it wasn't gonna accomplish anything. So while also Woolsey were all of that one goes the other thing it's kind of event a couple of the things that are as water is that trump wants a fourth of July military operated Washington. I you have brought this up yesterday. Wants to do it down Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington on the fourth of July. Something that he'd originally wanted and is enough for his inaugural parade he made the remarks during the meeting with the French president. I at the United Nations as a recalled watching know the Bastille day parade in Paris. And which includes tanks and military jets and flying overhead and when he said he wanted to do a fourth of July military parade I merely thought North Korea. Did you know all the footage did you see North Korea has all the military walk and by the give John noon. That was probably better me to think that we're. He said Delaware actually taken the president's direction thinking about a fourth of July Pennsylvania Avenue having a great they're really great parade to show off our military strength. Tom. The last time there was a military parade in Washington. Showing off US military hardware was 1991. And they did that at the end of the Persian gulf war. I nerves are historian by the name of Michael. Beschloss. Who told the New York Times that missiles were also part of John F Kennedy's inaugural parade. So there you go on balance audible Cyril that goes. The big story. That's kind of simmering underneath the rest got to wait to see where this goes. The FBI was listening in somebody just emailed me wanted to. Receive. I can't find it. Our viewers to register our drug called master about this I think this is a story that you were asking about the FB IR was listening in on Paul man afford. That's. Trump's first campaign manager. Listening in on metaphor conversations long before it became chief of the trump campaign. And it wiretapped him again as part of an investigation of alleged Russian election meddling. The insiders tell CNN that matter fort. Was initially wiretapped under a secret court order in 2014 in connection with his work as a consultant and Ukraine. And then that investigation was dropped last year apparently because there wasn't enough evidence to bring charges. But then the sources say there's that thing I love so much about a monitored today sources say. That the wiretapping resumed under another secret order which like the first was issued under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. It's not clear win the second court order was issued but the ward extended until at least earlier this year. Along with the man afford. Well long after man for parting ways with the trump campaign. And they say evidence collected suggests that manna for encouraged. The Russians to help the trump campaign. Dough that evidence has not conclusive. Now as I read all of this today. And the wording in the way that it's worded and the fact that it's coming from the New York Times and CNN. It's kind of been. Because of so many other things going on it's kind of been awhile since we've gotten a daily. Speculative. Article from the Washington Post the New York Times and CNN. The death by am a million paper cuts the just keep on plant the seeds planting the seeds plant the seeds in them before you know what are you convinced people that. They're smoking even though there's been no fire. And all of this I would assume all come out when the investigation is done in the results of that come out with a New York Times citing sources. Including lawyers and witnesses. Moon. So that that pretty well locks it up Bennett. Lawyers and witnesses certainly can't disputed knew that. Reports that federal agents apparently fearing manner for would destroy evidence picked a lock it hurt without warning when they raided his Virginia home in July and we know they did down.

The facility sounded too alarmed that indicated that the United States had fired at nuclear missiles towards the Soviet Union. You have to remember how tense things were Beckham goes to his between the two. The first alert indicated one missile had been fired in the second showed four more were on the way. So Petro off. Is a guy that would be making the decision on how to. React to that. And he'd. Gut instinct correctly deduced. That the warnings were probably computer errors. I think I heard them say the other day that if there might you're United States were actually. Mounting an attack Davis sent more than what. It is. Data said was coming. Couple of factors tip Petra fought to the errors he said for one the Soviet military had been trained to expect a full blown attack by the United States not just a few missiles. And the system was also new. And petrol said he didn't really quite trust it yet. His ultimate decision to dismiss the warnings. Has been hailed as a move that po potentially save the world from what could have been an all out nuclear war. It was later learned that the warnings were set off by a rare alignment of sunlight on high altitude clouds. Which reflected into a Soviet satellite.

Having too many are too few FaceBook friends. That makes people just like you immediately what you make a judgment. I had too many. And who have a New York. I'd disclosing. Something extremely personal early and on and their relationship. She I would think that would mean that your open. And get that. It's like that that they they knew David brother movie. May at last. One of the things that I think makes them so appealing to so many people is that they they open themselves up they've conceived through the. Same thing with his radio show. When it's worth what kind of establish this radio shows that we were pretty wide open talked about all the so when I had out of wedlock recommend it to tell you know the whole nine yards talked about everything.

They all were also the generation most likely to agree with the a statement if I work hard I can do anything. I still believe that.

All right I have ever heard the rumor that if you keep on no go into the airline's surging no flights that the airlines. You detect your browser and Jack you're. Jack the price. Flying is a big expense. And if you keep on checking out tickets for a flight to see if they had changed prize. You know the question comes up is that a Smart tact because there is a rumor that that the their lives jacked up prices when you keep on search in the same flight. Fare compare three exceeding. Says so it tells time magazine that airlines do not change ticket prices based on consumer search history on a web site. But because of inventory updates or glitches on the website he adds. Prices generally get more expensive closer to departure date even more than a day. There's a guy though by the name William Magee same article that and aviation advisor for consumer reports and he says he's seen evidence. That pricing based on search history may not be entirely a myth he says ultimately consumers should shop around. But use at least two different browsers if possible. I've never heard that before. I guess a little scary that you go in there and check airline flights that they would then register your. When you're number your computer and every year when we're devil went over them and yeah yeah. I never thought of that before I don't know that I'd ever heard of that before you dig Ticketmaster does say things. It. Now at guerra big kid store about. By the time a kid turns sixteen how much pocket money do you think he's had total. I never really thought about this tolerance article iPod disinterested this is written by the sun which is a UK publication that. Children score about 6500. Bucks and pocket money by the time they're sixteen. Yeah that sounds a little item being less and let's grandma and grandpa largest they're knocking me dead at Christmas time. I've ever my aunt Frieda gave me 500 bucks I think I was. Fifteen or so much. I thought I was gonna retire. British researchers found that their kids collect nearly 600 US dollars a year and pocket money. I'm birthday Christmas gifts rewards 600 year. No I in some cameras I guess I could see that there and another thirteen hundred or so run another a little businesses on the side babysitting car washing whatever. Used to be delivering newspapers as to avoid that till the adults took all those jobs. Second groceries into and in interviews frittered away about 49% just says that their kids spend the money immediately. Your route parents ever hit you with the saving your you should save and did you ever really follows the charges. And how long did you say that you still have it a rest my case. That's our roundtable with Kenny Smith happened this morning. 11 o'clock on those doctors Gerald Gerald. I'm markers are both Thompson and it's got to me all of a good girl video of the Republican mayoral candidate will do the same thing next Tuesday. Same time same place 11 o'clock. With a vial whilst. And and probably some more before the elections come around so world there was a lot of resisting. A makes start from a mile miles of the government of so we're actually do that but that was this morning there was. Unaffiliated voters now make up the second largest group of voter registrations in North Carolina I it's been edging their way for a long long time. But. And Arnold a gym and I've been an unaffiliated voter for. Ever. Especially in North Carolina because when I got here it was already one of the states that if you were unaffiliated than you could pick because the party B you wanted to play with in the primaries and and then I'll like to have them. So unaffiliated voters now make up the second largest group of voter registrations in North Carolina. Registrations in that category. More than registered Republicans. And affiliated registrations actually passed Republican legislation sometime between September 2 in September the ninth. Tuesday's data. North Carolina has 2640726. Registered Democrats say it's 38 point 9%. Charlotte would be higher than that a percentage standpoint has returned in such a blue city. 2000. 2056294. Voters are registered as unaffiliated it's thirty point 3%. Again Democrats were 38 point 9%. And Republicans. Just under unaffiliated. With also about thirty point 3% 2055700. And no officiate and there's 33474. Registered libertarians. About a half a percent. Twitter. Michael loved bits are political science professor at tech talk. Set on a Twitter that the shift toward unaffiliated registrations is being driven by the increase in millennial voters. Memorials now make up about thirty point 5% of the registered voters and about 40% of them have opted to registers unaffiliated I would tube. Much more than the thirty point 3% of the total registered voters who are unaffiliated. North Carolina Republican Party executive director Dallas would house said that the number is are bad for the GOP. He says actually that the Republicans have dramatically closed the gap on Democrats. And continue to do so Republican Party is growing in North Carolina the Democratic Party is not. And as of this week Democrats. Have 584968. More registered voters in North Carolina the Republicans. But that number has been dropping in recent years at the beginning of this year it Democrats had an advantage of 636000. 561. More registered voters so that's a pretty big gap from 536. Rescued me from 636000. To 584000. And they say important to note this is 2010 Republicans have won unaffiliated voters in every general election. And what else said we must continue to do that to be successful. So why sometimes the numbers on the surface don't necessarily reflect. The success of the box office for a field at the bulls at the box office. Nobody goes to the box office anymore. I. Gotta go listen in recent pretenders album so I forget about the pretenders all of it over for Arthur. Knowledge Ayman Al wanderers they elude to us Sandia WBT hey Sandi. Are a great area you.

Object and I finally ended up with a hundred bucks I would have Byron of with a hundred bucks and want the horse and immoral wanted to bike. Ahmed but that's about as close as I came and I don't think I earned that much I think I think I've probably learned about twelve buckshot and Jews and then I got a birthday and gave along and I got another eighty some odd bucks and so that was that. Yeah I never had become a discipline you just described. Well and change a little bit and piece this week at an older and old man's neighbor that we try and eat a peek at high every night glamour make desserts.

Milwaukee high school's homecoming dances next month and female students. Have to send in photos of their dressed to get approval. And with the Milwaukee school district as superintendent Mike Katie. It probably has some sort of a finish. That. Saying that it's two keep from having students ejected from the dance for showing us too much skim. You know back in my day missiles in really obscure but parents took care of that. How old is fashion is that. The our policy has been enough places Tony fifteen but reminder email the families last week has a sense some of them are. Unhappily calling it sexist in micromanaging it probably is player does that have to know the history of the school of Thursday. If it's got to be a problem and maybe it's going to be a problem. Mom. Here's a study. Or this is brilliant. Marriage. Makes men fatter. Who whatever thought. Being married makes men know plump up according to new findings researchers from the university of bath. Found that married men have higher body mass index. Related to get on that challenge stating yeah. Com then they're not married counterparts adding approximately three pounds to the scales. And if a man gets divorced his BMI dipped back down just before and after the divorce does so does ours distilled by the way. Additionally there's no affect on male BMI when the while wife becomes pregnant. But in the early years after childbirth men do gain weight. And that they say the finding confirms the idea that people were single but seeking marriage have more incentive to stay fit. And more and make more of an effort than those who are merited a duck. Whatever thought. Age probably has something to do with that too at some point you kind of figure out you know what the chicks estate located me anymore. Yeah I'll take another piece of pie thank you very much. And young married so it's quite common for married people to consider cheating on their spouses at least briefly but those in their twenties are more likely than their elders to actually do it why would that be. That's the conclusion of a new University of Tennessee steady you don't think that's just exclusive to conceded. Published in the journal of sex research. I was gonna say which TJ gave me but then thought on. Reasons cited for cheating related to a search for independence from a spouse or a lack of fulfillment in the relationship I don't know early relationship. And you got problems.
