What -- certainly if you like your health insurance you'd think it girl insurance here in the bloody minute blows. Just how much your health -- -- -- -- opened right. If I deem it worthy if it's all -- I mean that's the simple way to understand this -- The Democrats have tried to spend it you know back this this weekend I think they failed. I think most people see this and I got a trainer Rick the news -- about obamacare this morning is very revealing true. Oh and if I'm sorry -- -- which com. -- -- -- -- -- -- Good intentions to at least Drupal. But it -- people that think what you're not helping stranded rafter or three years. And nobody credit to -- a lot of people didn't pay attention and now -- -- between out of trouble also the freedom of sports. -- -- -- -- start well we're we're absolutely do not -- under in Minnesota did this -- army just category. People ridiculed on any if you want to overload don't let people get its act caught between the house whether or not I don't need to disarm. Also are too small -- both. And boy are they just sound to let people see what liberalism socialism really is due to guitarist ever and maybe for a generation can beat back. Yes it's interesting that you have followed that line of thought that is being written about today be exactly what you just said is being written about today. In a piece called the edification of the low information voter. And -- thank you -- for the call let me let me -- that part of that with folks right now what Rick was talking about this and American -- dot com written by Scott -- The rights to predictably disastrous rule out of obamacare as giving conservatives a rare opportunity a perfect storm if you will. To do is reduce suggested sit back and observer. Well -- and for information voters discover firsthand. That Obama's lofty rhetoric in no way matches the actual effects of his signature achievement. It's as if these shell shocked low information voters. Are being thrust into a once in a lifetime crash course on the failures. Of big government before the law even gets off the ground. Obama cares implementation is different because previous expansion. Of the federal leviathan. Moved forward due to the temptations of on bridled utopian promises in an AB says parenthetically thinks social security and Medicare. And because the inherent economic flaws didn't present themselves until well -- Americans were fully dependent upon that. Not this time around. Where did these millions of potential students of obamacare. Come from. They were created by an educational system mainstream media. And Hollywood culture that consistently push a carefully crafted crafted progressive. Agenda. And because of this. Low information voters can easily be found among the highly educated class of doctors lawyers professors journalists of course politicians. Just as they are found among totally on the educated groups he writes or is Mark Twain once said. It ain't what you don't know they get you into trouble it's what you know for sure that just ain't so. -- the above with the intrinsic human desire to be accepted among one's -- What you wind up with in the United States is what can only be described as one giant low information voter factory. But there's a window of opportunity here. He says that I'm confident Republicans will screw up thanks to President Obama. And the Democrats false promises and total lies about obamacare. And millions of low information voters at least those willing to believe their own line guys. Are suddenly receiving a much needed higher education. I ain't he here are a few of the possible course titles for these incoming obamacare freshman. Economics 101 did you really think you could keep your current health plan.

And transitioning from obamacare to a single Payer system and he writes Mair writes my personal favorite community service one a one. Lessons and altruism quote I was all for obamacare until I found out what I was paying -- So -- point is made in this piece by Scott -- of the unification of the low information voter and they probably will never call a show like this and admitted. But many of them. Other then -- just totally clueless ones. They they they really are thinking about what Rick and Scott just said that that's what they're thinking oh my goodness. I got this email. Which poses a good question along these same lines up from -- you rush I listen to your station Fox News here's something I haven't heard discussed. Power the people that are listening to TV and news -- or radio. Finding out if they don't buy obamacare they will be fine. Is the -- is gonna notified them by mail. I really -- know several people with families better clueless. And they're not even discussing it. Well I'm sure. You know Obama's gonna take good care of those people. If you know he can get the -- to look and how they voted and make sure that they voted for him. I mean isn't that the Obama Chicago way. -- eleven local updates are made ninety. Right age 45 rawness next Tyrod. Good morning good morning. I don't know let me -- not bandwagon I'm a lot of work to terminate your insurance company and she says why not -- Country end and let that they have huge hospital they'll. And issue estimate that they won't Rangers got this send a check. Hospital to pay the bill they say no way you'll so it. And then if you -- slider better hospital culture and elsewhere at spirit break. Perhaps energetic and she should not wait -- bit. Bit flat. That landing in PayPal will never get about it a lot and at that Waltz. Our request that might need at center -- hospital bill but it has. Have to give it to -- -- instead and given it payment for the hospital and a lot but certainly your debate change that would put up a hospital it'll look. Or a weird somebody else bring data this week. So and so they're taking the money and just not paying their own bill. And then what so what becomes of that if you've got people admitting on the -- will never get that. Then do you and that drives that the price -- for everybody. That's trying to -- to sang a couple of years ago I had a situation that. I had to have a cat scan. And I you know what I thought was based insurance like Powell. The hospital can't make it says that they rain -- and are they shared. That it would cost about 3000 dollars and and it checked that. Insurance -- and and Churchill called pay 600 dollars of the 3000 dollars. Did okay well. -- -- -- -- and I can't I'll just bring out the collars. Can action and now work out. And let's -- it well. I spend -- thousand dollars cash and -- it -- appetite behind their. And then I'd get a bailed -- still I hit 3000 dollar. Hospital and ask him about it I can't uh oh that was just an experiment. That break that amount or they would support an album congress you know -- -- world country and that they pepper shaker like that they are about what it out. Instead about -- -- -- -- that haven't played for about almost 4000 dollar that it's our. -- -- -- Well -- Terry -- you mentioned the word hospital there's news out this morning it's not just that if you like your doctor. Are you like your insurance you can keep it what that was the big lie. Then one of the big news stories out this morning is more more of the top hospitals. Are opting out of obamacare. There it is I'm gonna participate. And so what what does it all these low information folks where's that gonna leave them. I mean they're going to be walking around thinking well we got it now we go to any hospital we want we conceded the best doctors if we want to. That's not exactly correct college planetarium thank you sir are to have about a minute a buddy Harry killer cold and conservative voice to rhino -- hi Harry. But don't ask all of -- -- aspect that a few extra money you can keep that they're. -- Gotta do yes we inserted -- -- -- that you had not talked fight you're actually inside media petition. Of course I'm talking about the people largest tax increase in Greenville county history. -- -- -- -- -- As many of our Greenville county legislative delegation as possible. Cemetery percent represented Serbs are totally about not of them. -- has yet to try and block -- that supports the Atlantic council's opposition to. To put another 1% sales tax almost. Not probably that's a good start but everyone says that the state of South Carolina has put -- -- -- party tricks erodes. Well John Cook has written an editorial about this and I was just reading -- and he he thinks the dirty little secret is. Any explains it dead because they will be for new projects it really won't be about you know Phillip. Oh that's right there that's when both -- up to a tremendous amount of business owners over the last forty -- -- Aren't in business owners are we upset about this so we -- them to their requests passed by -- -- hate each.

Howard and charge my batteries specialists coming up an 85830. I've got the code word that you will need. To win some Christmas cash -- WORD confused. A grand. -- thousand dollars that's what's up for grabs so. Stick around -- give -- that code word and tell you how you can enter to win 1000 dollars when Christmas cash. Right here on WORD live and local 1063. Our history can live and local. So just -- overnight. And our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Erica Adriana feels. Seventeen year old. Died at Spartanburg county. Hospital Irish farmer hospital. Regional hospital. Seventeen year old -- trick or treating with friends struck and killed by an issue -- The rustling in a phone call earlier and they said that she was taken her siblings out. Trick or treating and that's why she was out there. She was after intricate trading with them. I don't know I'd beaten down and neighborhood last night and it's just crazy. People just don't have any sense. They drive like maniacs. When they know kids I wouldn't. Go into this neighborhood. And I didn't go like. I don't think over five miles an -- Because you never know one of the new kids gonna run on Friday. I would -- you have to be absolutely. Brings it. To drive like to leave you saw that last night. Then straight and have idiots driving. Over to Anderson account. Someone is dead after hit and run about 3:45 this morning no longer a Broadway lake -- surely drive. Troopers trying to figure out you know what happened there. But that brings up another thing that I got this we're -- is it just me there seems to be a lot more hidden rooms. These -- what do you think is behind that. I've noticed that too I can say with just about absolute certainty. There must be -- pick a number there must be ten times. More hit and run reports. Now then there was a pick a -- even ten years ago. -- they think I can think of 'cause there wasn't time. If you ever were involved in something like this when I was grew up you pulled over. Tried to take care of the person best she could and then you you contacted authorities -- yourself now people just couldn't take off. And there's got to be one reason why because they think aren't gonna get caught. In Anderson this was 3:45 in the morning. And of course we have more more people. Moving in shore area. Who would know a law if it jumped up veneman the but even if they knew what the law was they they just disregarded. But I what your thoughts on that and then. What what a night it was about 4:45 this morning. -- on pine creek according Greenville county. A home invasion. Three masked men stormed into this house armed with guns came into a sliding glass door according to our news partner fox Carolina. Homeowner heard it came downstairs. It was confronted by the man they got away with all kinds of stuff but he couldn't tell whether they fled the scene in a car or on foot -- And this follows three masked men invading another home yesterday. Over engage court. Deputies say they don't know what their connect. You know there's pull out crimes on the increase but the the thing in the poll Gallup. Is that most people don't realize South Carolina has just ranked fifth in the nation. From violent crime. In -- course with home invasions. If you were to go and that's why. Everybody everybody needs to have a weapon and know how to use that stop these home invasions. There's a new study out speaking of guns that links gun ownership to racism. -- -- when you hear this. Coming up next 839 now time for an update. I guess those home invaders must be blatant racism tried this and on for size big headline. Racism linked with a gun ownership and opposition to gun control in white America us. There's than just new study has found that higher levels of racism and white Americans. Is associated with having a gun in the home. And greater opposition to gun control policies. Research published in PLO west one. Led by doctor Kerry O'Brien monitors university Australia. And Manchester university in the UK used data from a large representative sample of white US voters. Ever counted for numerous other factors such as income education and political ideology. The researchers found. Then for each one point increase on a scale from one to five in what they're calling symbolic racism. There was a 50% increase in the odds of having a gun in the home. NH 48% increase in support for policies. Allowing people to carry concealed weapons. Research stimulated by gun control debates in the US after mass shootings such as sandy hook. And research. Showing black Americans. Or more likely to be shot than whites the more most recent figures are that there are approximately 38000 gun related deaths in the US each year. With other research suggesting having a gun in the home is related to a two point seven or four point eight fold increase. In the risk of a member of that home dying from homicide or suicide. Doctor O'Brien coming from countries with strong gun control policies at 830 full. Thirty -- lower rate of gun related homicides. We found the arguments for opposing gun control counter intuitive. And somewhat illogical. For example white Americans oppose gun control to a far greater extent than do black Americans. But whites are actually more likely to kill themselves with the guns. Then be killed by someone else. So why would you keep that. We decided to examine what's coach social and psychological factors. Predict gun ownership and opposition to gun control your jobs conservatism. Anti government sentiment party identification. Being from a southern state. Were also associated with opposition to gun control. But the association between racism. And the gun related outcomes remained. After accounting for these factors and other participant characteristics being age education income and gender. So what is symbolic racism exploit. Symbolic racism. Supplanted old fashion or overt or blatant racism. Which was associated with open support for race inequality and segregation under Jim Crow laws. But it still captures the anti black sentiment and traditional values that underpinned blatant racism. Bonds -- understand that. Symbolic break -- old similar racism is also related stronger opposition to policies. That may benefit black Americans such as welfare. And greater support for policies that seem to disadvantaged black Americans such as longer prison sentences. Both of the guys who did this summed it up our results -- first step. But there needs to be more funding for empirical research. Around how racial biases make influence people's policy decisions. And particularly those policies that impact on the health and wellbeing. A US citizens. So there you go and that's a new ones. I have -- I haven't ever read that before our quick call before break careless talk to Mike in traveler's rest time Ike. They Russ sorry I'm fine. I just a few quick comments on the pit -- saying -- Additional money. Well didn't I got about three reasons that I can think others first of all it's all. Most of the average person can do about it to even need to pay their bills. Truth be said and I think a lot more people are not carrying car insurance. And they're afraid that if they stop this state did hit someone there called BC news which is true. And then the other thing is I can't stop the red light hardly without CNN. A bunch of Mexicans send a friend of mine's wife got rear Enders did and father bailed out the card left to saying you know meanwhile were closed so. And the other thing is that there's just no respect for others or. -- life anymore I think you know. All right thank you -- are aged 49. Married two and a half minutes away from that first code word in the wind Christmas cash. On WORG contest to stand by for that see how many folks wouldn't get on Emily Europe first -- I'm just -- -- -- I'm not a negative information about -- it register their garden. I think I'll report -- yeah. America -- I think the current. You know we've done we register. Yeah. To I don't know raised above or what it is that's why I wonder brilliantly I mean he's just. It's amazing what the left will try to do in one of their favorite things is the boot the race card. And it didn't and how many people are gonna go. Well you know. Depending I was like this tech's Russ I -- you know I'm a strong supporter of diversity so rest assured. Then anyone who kicks my -- and invades my house will be shot without regard to skin color. There you -- that -- bam sandy wants to comment I sandy. I have endured marathon talk about the elephant in the group about the sheer you know out. Nobody even conservative record but it all school you know about why you know they talk up black -- -- more client and it's true because I -- You know like you could get the department of justice and the FBI you know quite stack. Blacks could you know blacks to -- group like -- You know what could this hurt disproportionately. You know. More violent crimes topic debate out like 4045%. To -- -- which are the -- -- but there's been generally. The -- for the -- and then if I could go to blacks at 12% or apply -- expert said it would not much crime. Now I mean. You know I mean we are yet I think you need to address the greater the problem but it didn't say that you don't get -- all delighted that it could not back to back up. Did Biden call anybody racist doesn't make it true but here's what I wanna know so all look like Chicago this weekend if it's like. You know most weekends. You'll have a tremendous amount of black on black crime. So still when that happens are are those people racist can you be racist when you're out there shooting and robbing. The people of of the same skin color I mean come all. But I may not need to look at the root of the problems. You don't want to thank you ma'am.
