I'm not you know -- if -- if folks for a while didn't he get the rookie to -- 300 dollars just for show enough to -- it. At county council -- up six. I wonder how many people would come out there to pick up -- 300 dollars. Well and that's and that's exactly what they'll be doing if if this proposal to create this commission. And stands and it does going -- does end up going on the ballot next year because. You are of the opinion and I'm inclined to agree that if it is on the ballot that. They're a powerful forces that'll put tons of money behind it and -- get a pass a pretty much be a foregone conclusion. Absolutely I do agree with that all the in -- And I don't take it anymore of your valuable airtime I just want to have to have one last -- encouragement also. The folks who wouldn't want to come and king -- you can still. Go -- no tax hike.

There are my understanding -- if you want China to speak to the county council. You need to be there around -- -- -- corporation will go quickly. Our understanding is that you won't be given two minutes to speak and I believe it's a great oval up twenty minutes or. A public input so it is even attempted. Based on not twenty minutes about it but three. -- dozen people. In the -- and we -- -- does have the party Cuba to change no matter what either that or whatever are there are. You know even if you cannot seek even if you don't want to speak. Should we have a -- warm bodies that are should just update. You bet where do you think. They showed I MI correct in thinking -- the final vote last time to go forward with creating the commission was eight to four. Is that is that right. There -- some confusion moment probably know I I still believe that the that the Pope was. That in fact -- there was some confusion. But you know it's it's entirely possible there are no guarantees it is entirely possible that. The number of folks that are reached out to their county council members. Could very well actually some -- But we can't give -- we've really we've not we've got to show up and let them -- Malik. Our end and you know we we. If we -- much. -- You know what should cheer -- are all about which which council members need to be replenished. But there are actually right now -- this is it was a battle but she'll be warmed. We have the folks that take advantage of -- form a government that are Albers gave us which is representative republic not a democracy. Our end and let them -- that this is I look at us. Perry appreciate the the heavy lifting that you've done on this issue and them were were happy to to be able to keep people in the upstate informed about. How their money potentially could be spent on one think ended up. To avoid having the council reach even deeper into people's. Wallets and purses thanks on Gerri appreciate you. You you -- and Harry show by the way is going to be on a special time this week. Typically he is on an 8 o'clock on Saturday.

Now they topped one Lyle tumbled another loan or -- and you can't help -- -- Alex was anything even if it hasn't changed a lot. Never wants. Did they say that I guess you know they think we're not paying any attention at all out here. Will will come back. Captain to -- and discussing more as the into the program progresses and sent him a first of all I ran a truck ran across this story today. And now I had this year and we hear from the file that we like to call. You. I guess. A a high percentage of people and at one time or another. Have been what sort I'm here for over sir. To the -- to the point where you wake up the next morning you're not quite sure what happened. However. I believe it's probably -- I'm probably safe and in speculating that no matter how. Over served slash drunk. You may have been and you had never gotten so drunk. That you woke up on a small mysterious island with no idea how you got. But. As they -- knew what happened to Stephen Coffey. Of Charleston. He would have been better off drinking -- names like 35 year old guy Saturday night. Drank so much and he decided it was a real good idea to take a quick -- Through freezing water to -- tiny island in the middle of a river. Drama island. -- than it is right in and in the middle and it's out in the Cooper river. In Charleston right. So we -- win there then passed out. Runners. Were out as they like to do early in the morning on Sunday. And spotted him called the cops when rescue crews got to him he was. This orient it. And had no idea how he'd gotten in the night. She is. He was hospitalized. Didn't get any severe injuries or problems because she's no you can't hurt drunk. Pretty impressive considering how drunk he was and how cold water was he is not facing any criminal charges. The worst derelict could've gotten behind the wheel of the car. -- She these implied swim out the drama island in the middle of the Cooper river. That sounds like some movie plot you know where. People are kidnapped and hunted for sport -- -- weird. AG's but apparently have no permanent damage why don't have the feeling -- that we may hear from Steve and hope it again. -- at some point. Hope not this statement now straighten -- fly right by 331 is news I'm right back on the other side here on the bombing Mac show why the local on WORD. 106 there. Speaking on night Jack. Just hear. -- called me last week. They're doing some. -- TV stations always do. Specialty things during a sweeps period when you do and raining and November's reading. Silva. Don't mind the way you hearts and and -- crazy on you. Jack coming into work we're doing this thing where I'm. Going down -- my area my bucket list of things that I like to do fly a plane. Rope a giraffe. Arm wrestle Barack Obama and -- budget -- step one of the things on his bucket list. Was -- being a radio talk show host. And so he said cannot impose on you rule. 200 to cross this off my bucket list coming in NB a radio talk show host for a few minutes Monday and -- a share. Come on and so not on this Friday's free for all the next Friday. On the free for all. Jack roper will be making his debut. Or -- as the case may be. SA radio talk show host a money penny so heads up for that -- you know TV cameras in the studios and and the whole nine -- two of those -- thanks impatiently waiting cliff. Is -- next -- he's in Malden high cliff and welcome to the program. And I'm delighted and very much thank you and thanks. Our company's first you know but I -- one of the main -- all volunteer was to trade target but how were away from the insurance companies. And Puerto -- -- government sort of government run every. My question there's. Why don't the insurance companies like root cause Belushi it'll. They had not met light. Why don't vote guys get together and just. Like -- they're all saying well for the people and get involved with the governor and all and just keep people optional gold through that. And not have let Obama care at all. That's it's a fair question. They have the answer is of course. They are regulated. By the federal government so. They don't have the power to do that in fact they have even less than they used to because as Limbaugh said you know these guys essentially went along. With the supporting the passage of obamacare ostensibly on the idea that they get a bunch of new customer right now of course. Now we find ourselves in the present situation there was this a news story at the in forum. Dot com web site last week the Obama administration asked north Dakota's largest health insurer. Which happens to be blue cross blue shield. Not to publicize how many people had signed up for health insurance through their online exchange so -- they're they're they're putting. They're putting the gruesome these guys talent don't you know don't don't let people know how bad -- really us. At this point it seems like to know they're getting pushed out of business. And the only way to you know to save themselves those two put himself back in the day and maybe I lower the premiums and elsewhere. They've -- -- that a little bit financially but in the end. Guilty of -- and maybe you know get -- -- -- would Obama pick Clinton essentially. You know the people they insulated not gonna work well it worked any. Sharon and I see what you're saying and I think you know that would that would be a good idea of the problem here again is the regulatory control. Of the Obama administration because written in two obamacare. Arm minimum requirements for instance Imus 67 year old guy. I probably don't need a mammogram. Or pregnancy insurance. But with the insurance company has to offer those things anyway. There and and that's part of the problem that's why Obama gives this bogus description of these. What he calls sub standard plans while they weren't sub standard for many Americans like did exactly the way it's. Well liked it it's official now that. Obama has edged -- and daughters being -- the worst. -- US -- so far back in the dust that the Georgia peanut farmers not even that doesn't. Thank you thank you glad I appreciate god I wish we could I mean there are a lot of simpler ways. To accomplish helping people with with health care. Then out then then obamacare and of course it's not a -- healthcare that's clipboard and it's about government control of 16 of the economy. And something that's vitally important to most Americans and their families mental health care. 341 it's nineteen minutes now before four. -- Yeah. -- hippie rock and roll in the background includes Springfield.

Laugh out loud these twits Kilmeny. Bob I think the Republicans are missing a golden opportunity to introduce a replacement plan. For obamacare -- all these problems becoming evident the Republicans have done hold up a plan and say look we have a solution and it would be bipartisan. And a lot of Democrats are running away from Obama and Obama care of those certainly that don't face an election a year from now.
