And thought to himself this is to have. So we printed another 300 and sold many shop however. Many people but these very first thought to be the first Christmas cards were offensive. Because the artwork showed a festive holiday scene with people consuming the evil brutal alcohol. I -- -- -- office Christmas parties everywhere.

There's a guy in New York -- -- at New York. His name is Peter Shankland he's a CEO of the company up there. Now he realized he had a bunch of frequent flier miles. That he had built up. So instead of just swirling them away for himself because we're always hearing from the left as rich capitalists they're only thinking of themselves. Name today. Keep the good stuff and it was only allow the -- masses to do without -- you know the whole litany anyway. Instead of us -- them away and there were those who may need earned them. He wrote a blog post about how he was gonna give away six. Three plane tickets to people who wanted to fly home for the holidays but couldn't afford it. And then other people heard about it as well kind of pay it forward thing. And decided to do the same jetBlue. Which certainly needs a good PR. Because they've had their share of problems in the past few years jetBlue pitched in ten free tickets so now a total of 25 people. Are getting free airline tickets home and as of last night. Peter Shankland had stopped accepting requests and was in the process of selecting.

And I just thought that they could -- -- orderly yardage all black. Now in Baghdad and one point in the game they had to stop it. Because the officials couldn't see the goal line. And they had guys coming out with snow shovels to scrape and then right behind them were people with snow blowers in their hands so they could figure out where the goal line was it was incredible.

The former bronco and they. For the all time. The news I. It's. It's. OK congratulations Matt -- the Denver Broncos get 64 yard field -- Yesterday the all time -- however. How shall never I got a bone to pick. With the other record keepers you know Tom Dempsey -- what 63 yarder. For the New Orleans -- way back into what the early seventies I guess there was. Dendreon was born with -- AM birth defects he only had half a foot when this kicking foot two n.'s special match you've built. A lot of kickers it was straight ahead kickers -- -- now the soccer style kickers my -- ideas. -- Prater kicked his 64 yarder. At an altitude of 5280. Treat. The air is a lot -- The pigskin for why is substantially if anybody's ever played golf. And higher elevations knows that in the thinner air any kind of ball is gonna trouble for it -- my point is of course. I'm Tom density. Kick this field goal I I think it may have been appealed to lane stadium. In New Orleans New Orleans is below sea level okay. So shouldn't traders. Down 64 yarder at mile high altitude have an asterisk beside it like I mean they did that against Mickey Mantle and and Roger Maris. You know it. The home run record. Put that up and an asterisk beside. Roger Maris is. 61 homers sixty whatever was that a liberal babe Ruth's record of sixty cameras in here anyway. That's just me. That's just me. -- I mentioned also. At the beginning of the program. President it's all about me. And the law dinner and a ranch on this last week that I thought. Was pretty much right on target when he talked about. With the passing of of Rosa Parks. The White House sent out a picture showing -- President Obama. In I guess the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis or wherever was. With showing Obama sitting in the same seat. That Rosa Parks and -- in in the -- During the the Alabama about strike -- -- anyway how it was all about Obama. Right well now same thing happened on Pearl Harbor day. President Obama's FaceBook page Saturday. Posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor which is fine that's nice. Accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next in the Pearl Harbor memorial. It's all about this guy. Now one other quick note on -- The president along with the former pro I guess former presidents bush and Clinton are also going on for the for a funeral Nelson Mandela in south -- right. How come. When -- Margaret Thatcher. Passed away the Iron Lady the former. British leader. Former -- UK prime minister. How come when Margaret Thatcher died recently liked was that we sent the undersecretary of agriculture or something. Obama couldn't be bothered even Biden. I think couldn't be bothered. So when Margaret Thatcher dies it's like your bad sorry. Life goes on. -- Catholic civilians there. And and now of course when Nelson Mandela. Passes well stop the presses everybody's. Nothing against Mandela. But come -- obviously these events are chosen for their political correctness. I mean what other conclusion can you drawl. But Obama had a tee time that they -- Margaret Thatcher's tree and 342 it's eighteen minutes now before four. -- Me and brother and get -- in Santo and Johnny. Sleep walk. -- the -- and you see about a million movies. -- 1959. -- euros million and thirteen minutes now before 4 o'clock I I am gonna get caught up. -- text messages. In -- -- 1307. I am gonna do that momentarily then backed the phones right right the second. And to bring in Amy who is on herself on hi Amy and welcome to leave Monday edition -- inaction. -- got. Look at the top of the bank here it is let me yeah -- -- a -- And at -- followers like Eden. And the big thing. -- is whole area. It is it is a funny. It. Let me put their life and you'll get a bit. Or tactical every lap and finish it in the paper yet and it -- How how it and how whole area is actually -- -- -- -- -- -- Every -- See that sounds like me with with either a blazing saddles. Or the caddie is one of the out there like that again I I do go when whenever it's on I can do the lines before the actors. Not -- -- -- in and the -- series because it just a bit below what it is what you don't air it out. -- opt in -- like midnight call back packed packed packed app. And I just argue with that. -- be lastly look what would be fairly young in the. I don't know I you know what -- within this many recommendations that will have to check it out because I do like to see. Funny shows but I'm I'm just kind of -- Michael ought to be able sort of selective about what and I thank them -- much of what's on network television is junk. Well I -- It is a course you cannot compare and some mini at the. Well that's yeah that's a step in the right direction for me as well. -- -- -- -- -- -- Obviously I'm without him but as far it is a credit remarks. And take that step like that that is not bad it just. Apple. On earth especially you have a mind at all. Yeah well you know and the key isn't writing it's or whether it's a movie or TV show the key is and how well it's written. Well I don't know that these characters were barely work. On their hand Obama. They don't it all the other side it was just about spell it out Leonard you know I'm not look good but that that the -- -- -- -- factors -- -- collected -- It -- right how did that -- -- even their original. Target. Really. Well beyond the check -- -- because we do have Netflix and another she can go back in Netflix you can essentially start from the beginning so. Yet the ethnic you have all -- on the my hand like I hit it on the free primetime show as well. I don't have them and I have Amazon and I think Amazon does that as well. Try and block. And hurt his character on my -- in real lot. That you rely so. That when it's not issues. That I. Would like outback -- -- and -- -- -- out but it. They didn't let him Wear his own clothes that's the key right there should not put. Them they didn't need to do wardrobe for a -- -- was geeky looking to begin with. That's a step in the right direction. And on the character Howard coming in Iraq's shadow at what it is number one like -- Google. In AD account. And have it it's miserable. I bet now I can't get -- of those bad boys anymore myself thank claiming I appreciate the recommendation thanks for the call. You 2351 it's nine minutes now before four. I know school musical liar and man -- music. -- symphony orchestra and The Beatles -- here comes the sun. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- He is in Greeneville hi John and welcome to the evolving not program. Thank you probably I'll be real quick guy hasn't flashed across number one I think -- North Korea. In Washington. The the White House have the same publicist. Their leader could well you know I think it's this narcissistic. Unlimited that I'm not mistaken. Although I saw the -- Kim Jong -- uncle apparently is. Now residing behind the barbed wire he must have spoken out of turn or something. Well gives a little bigger sense of security knowing that he's behind a lawyer now he's. Got another thing I think that Obama just really got taken to the cleaners on his education especially when it comes -- constitutional law knew that if I were him I'd follow suit against the universities and tried to teaching constitutional law. In short she needed him as much as. Yeah that would be Harvard Law School and that would be a pricey education although of course. He didn't -- quite sure yet exactly right nobody's nobody cares what it costs when you don't have to pay for it right. That's right a couple of others -- a little more serious. If you think back -- -- late 7475. And I can't remember what year Obama was born but can you imagine if he was born in 75. With a young white girl. In school whose impregnated by bill. An exchange student from Africa. What do you think the chances are that she might consider an abortion. Yeah I would have thought -- would be pretty high. I would think that that would have been very very high end. Time means everything is that. -- up in that the truth. And then also I did little numbers cruncher and when it came to abortions have looked at the numbers that they estimate have been done since the rover can -- And I extrapolated that out to subsidy could understand right if you take all of the high school graduates from every school the United States. From the years 1996. All the way up through there including 2013. Every single one of them plus some more. Would never resisted. Pretty frightening I've got to run for the -- general sir thank you very much for the call and thanks for the information. Our number two is on the way new -- now 3 o'clock 4 o'clock.
