Avi Nelson - Chik-Fil-A, Obama's business, and the Colorado shooting
Sat, 21 Jul 2012|
Mayor Thomas M. Menino is vowing to block Chick-fil-A from bringing its Southern-fried fast-food empire to Boston — possibly to a popular tourist spot just steps from the Freedom Trail — after the family-owned firm’s president suggested gay marriage is “inviting God’s judgment on our nation.” “Chick-fil-A doesn’t belong in Boston. You can’t have a business in the city of Boston that discriminates against a population. We’re an open city, we’re a city that’s at the forefront of inclusion,” Menino told the Herald yesterday. “That’s the Freedom Trail. That’s where it all started right here. And we’re not going to have a company, Chick-fil-A or whatever the hell the name is, on our Freedom Trail.” Avi talks about this, as well as continuing the conversation about the shooting in Colorado, and bringing in the topic of Obama's recent remarks involving building a business.

Walk back. Our number two of the programs Don Nelson welcoming you just joining us. Phone number 87746943. To 2000 toll free number. Need text message code is six AB CTV news email address and Nelson WRK -- dot com okay. -- -- they will then holding on I'm going. Two. The thinkable cause I'm gonna introduce some additional subjects -- -- taking any off the table just for additional things on the table. Sure you wanna continue to make calls about this that's fine this subject. We've been talking about Aurora Colorado the smashed her and the implications and also Brian Ross Citi BC. Incorrectly. Alleging all clear early on that the James Holmes was a member of the Tea Party. 8774694322. Lawrence you are next on the program good afternoon. I -- good afternoon I'd like to clear up two quick points subprime may search engines -- -- which actually expertise than you do trouble being orange air. I think -- -- or a Google or at least search came home and name in buffalo and association. -- Tea Party is faulty. What is true is that if you start from the perspective loved let me look at who belongs and that Tea Party in search of James Holmes belonged to the Tea Party. Then that this Powell they did there now. You know I don't really interesting point I did retrace Brian Ross -- steps just. You may have been listening early but some people. May not have we're not I did some real different highway and we just didn't. They computer search on Brian Ross. And read three stories of Brian Ross's who have been convicted of various crimes for murdered a child abuse and of course through in the disclaimer we don't know if it's the same Brian Ross. But you're -- interest in pointed if you -- in. James Holmes just. The name change homes in Aurora Colorado. I don't know if you come up where James -- Tea Party. I'll tell you don't get what I'm saying you can make up for the criminal record. But I dare anyone go on AAR paid they have James -- this from what I mean. I don't anyone gonna be at match dot com and then -- you know what I'm saying -- you know what they did is they want to they have a log -- on the Tea Party member I'm sure what they did they have they wanted -- Tea Party site are James Thompson is there. Which indicates that thinking out there at least search people they'd be. No really no indication malice aforethought right. And you're saying I wonder they went to moveon.org. Gore. Any of that you don't Democrat activists and put in chief James Holmes is there to what you're saying -- This was done intentionally and the malice was there before they push the computer keys. That's correct -- you may very well be right good point. Good play good. Point out second quick point if I could is what I hear about this story being formally in the navy all I can think is. This has surpassed them all through the recently -- the Second Amendment. I mean we added on an armed. Group as civilians Billy Idol -- eighty casualty. This wouldn't happen in a different situations. Well I don't know IE you -- I -- I must say you go to a movie theater I don't know did you go armed. And and I don't know that you really end up. Where is any kind of benefit if you end up everybody shooting at everybody else because some guy some guy may have gone. I know not everything is solved. By having a population that's armed I agree that the solution to this massacre is not to disarm the population. Well I wouldn't want to go to a theater not only you would either where everybody is carrying a weapon because you don't know the guy next few his dress up in costume. Part of having fun with the movie or because he's killer. No but but he went to a movie trailer knowing that it was. Full of civilians. Not the only one that was my point oh -- I I'm not going anywhere should be armed and therefore -- having a war here. But this is what caught follow up took a cruise ships and Florida where they were getting -- -- -- carjacked. And when they diagnose why they would stop targeting talks about people coming up -- ships is because Caribbean cruise ship go a lot of babble -- and that is what lot of the crew also saying what we know to come -- the -- they don't forget be carrying weapons so that try to go after the deal clippers. Once thank you for the call point's well taken back. 8774694322. Is the phone number John you're next on the program good afternoon. I. Thanks. I. I moved to the medical professions. Sure look carefully into when they tie up from their positions in the medical red. Medical job he was a bad reputation incidents police that they get that job but I think disarm Iraq. I don't -- medical profession to be an amnesty movement condition of this man and should have been probably. You mentioned solutions. Are brought -- un institutions. You know John -- -- they may be I don't know I don't know where we don't know enough he had. Good to know whether he was obviously deranged that is to say you know people who had interaction within knew that this guy was a bomb waiting to go off. I don't know that always Irish -- -- -- -- -- They should look -- further to introduce the background -- his mental condition. And but I didn't actually did did in Iraq. My understanding god why this guy snap because in this matter masks to give into the profession and somehow. Nobody really understood. Very English groom would be -- action until. John thank you for the call you know. Well I -- from John is this. This year -- -- that we all have to somehow understand just to explain it to. To -- prevented from happening again and I'm not sure you get there. I don't know that we ought to be having so much psychological. Analysis. Doing is trying to find everybody who's a little bit different. -- maybe. You you catching James Holmes maybe you don't -- you end up with a whole bunch of other people. Ending up with not getting jobs are being under suspicion or push somebody calling that the government saying this guy should be locked up. Because he has a departure from what I consider to be norm. You know. I suspect you get close enough to everybody and they've got something institutional like hearing you suspect. I'm not sure about the music he listens to when did you see the food -- to make it each and English in terms of of trying to do a psychological profile on people let's and that's what I'm saying here in -- society. As complex and sophisticated. And technologically advanced as we are. 300 million much plush. You just not going to get the mall and there are going to be bad things happen. And where you just hope for the best and you go on you know they. The metaphor that comes to mind the analogy is that when you're driving on the road. You know it's a two lane road guys coming in the other direction. You just hope for the best that you don't have some. Not or somebody who's flipped out who's decided to cross over into your lane and then head on collision. He's just no way you hope for the best. And you live life and never once and awhile bad things happen. And they're not foreseeable. And probably not preventable without putting so many restrictions on society. That we would have more casualties. And more restrictions on who wanna live where it. Not that doesn't of course when that does happen in the treasury doesn't happen and small consolation OPEC. I want to show we should extend the program and going to other things other issues now. And we'll start. With something. That will actually made the national mood solo -- also in the in The Herald and -- -- Mayor Tom Menino mayor of the city of Boston. Very chain restaurant chain called chick filet. Chick. Typhoon fill F I L I -- capital way. And the there just is a real southern fried. And fast food empire. And they wanna bring a restaurant to Boston. Well it turns out that the president. Of chick fillet -- named Dan Cathy. Has made some remarks questioning gay marriage and lauding the traditional family. Have now. I don't care -- you agree or not I don't care what do you think everybody should be any gay marriage or nobody should be. The point is fifteen. As a citizen of the United States. And we always wrapping ourselves in the First Amendment audio the same way every once. Mayor -- Has decided that because of that comment. Chick fil -- will not be allowed in Boston. Here's some Menino is quote. Chick -- doesn't belong in Boston you can't have a business in the city of Boston that discriminates against -- population. Cash to punk -- -- and opened shady worst city that's at the forefront of inclusion. The actual freedom trail that's where all started right here. And we're not going to have a company chick filet or whatever the -- -- name is our our freedom trail unquote. Well. Not surprising new user know whether he can get the name writer not where I find remarkable. Is here we need Oprah. -- potential claims to understand what the meaning of the Freedom Trail -- he says -- an open shady. Well Oprah numerous means mr. -- -- that you can sync things that the mayor disagrees with. And you don't have big penalty that's what the First Amendment is all about. The First Amendment cues that you can say what you want and the government will not combined. Not -- sure door and take you away it -- should government will not punish you. He doesn't mean that you get to say anything at any time at any venue. You if you're a private citizen you have a right if you have a meeting their auditorium you'll right to restrict people were speaking that's what the First Amendment. This is about the First Amendment is the government can't restrict you. And here. -- Comes right out and says I'm gonna prevent them from being here here's another quote they run in the article this is Menino again speaking. If they need they being kicked like if they need licenses in the city it will be very difficult unless they open up their policies and quote. That is exactly. What the forced amendment is designed to prevent me no it's to prevent political thugs like you. From throwing their weight around and preventing people. From doing things in the city because they shouldn't thinks. That they disagree that you disagree with -- he didn't they didn't mean restrict anybody from being their by the way in the article. It says that she actually has a policy that nobody's discriminating consumers you can come and I. This is very much a matter of freedom of speech -- Martha Coakley is the attorney general Massachusetts. Coakley do your job. Menino should be prosecuted. For something like this talk about like going to jail a message should be sent. To be overweight politicians. Within enhanced view of their influence that this kind of stuff is not to be tolerated. Remember this isn't the first time. -- or not the IQ points came to Boston he provided them with services. Know why I don't Tommie Hill for a long time that one at that point that's when I departed has such a violation of the constitution to. That he would use tax dollars to support people that he favors when Tea Party had gatherings there was no such support. But Menino favors some and is against others and he has the ball. To violate the constitution. In application. Of his own personal views that's a disgrace it's also a crime. And -- we ought to get on it do your job Martha Coakley. This is not something that the mayor of any city ought to be able to do. And that's kind of a threat. Ought to be attended to by the attorney general as an example of why it's good to have. The first party -- Coakley is a Democrat Menino is a Democrat both left wing Democrats. What are the chances that she's gonna follow up on my suggestion. That's some action be taken. In a smaller example but with the same kind of political implications. Deval Patrick he's going to hold a fundraiser. For the Obama's Michelle Obama in particular is coming to his mentioned in the Berkshire's. And show he had one of his assistants. Called the tone of Richmond which is that the tone on the western part of the state. Asking for the road to be repaired. -- -- her show. Won't having kind of bumping along the way. And of course the town is doing it. When -- Harrell asked whether it was appropriate for member of staff to make the call. Petritsch said I think any citizen -- to be able to call the government and ask for a pothole at the end of the street to be repaired unquote. Yeah that's right anybody can call and it'll provide comic relief. You're throwing your way around there's a -- of Richmond immediately gone on to fill in the bottles. I don't think Michelle Obama she looks like she's pretty well padded number one. Number two she rides around you can be sure she's not going to be in -- in a car that doesn't have good shock absorbers. I'll go one of course is in a slightly different category it's annoying. And again fact polls have thrown their way around. But it's not a direct violation of the constitution. -- -- -- -- Just in disgrace that you would come out and have no qualms about it. -- even after French what the language he finished menial teams figures he can come out and say whatever -- wants. In this kind of threat. And that he'll get away with it no understanding of what the constitution is all about. No understanding what the Freedom Trail -- free on mr. meaning no. Freedom from government portion of the freedom to be able to take points of view that -- disagreed -- by the mayor. That's what the Freedom Trail represent. You panic that's vicious and disgraced then office to line. Time time time to go somewhere hopes. 877469. 43 to choose a phone number could trigger com or -- to go on to. Twelve through with a couple calls on this one and we'll go on to mr. Obama. -- your action the program good afternoon. Yet aren't rebel with a few if -- -- about him you know understood exactly what I suspect that about him. When he instituted that look at residential alarm about the police sending him firemen -- -- -- live in Boston if they're gonna. At work about the -- And I. Yes you do -- course that's a slightly different kind of thing because it's not a violation of the First Amendment. Well I agree with yours truly was a dubious requirement why should people have to live in a particular city and town I don't. Also the follow up arms he does -- flat calm city hall and more to lead some definitions of religion. Is they cause principle or belief that here to appeal a group of people well. Like -- you know you don't even have to say this enough to be a matter of religion this is a matter freedom of speech. Right this is just basic agreeing or disagreeing actually trying to get me off the -- because I criticized him. This is exactly what the First Amendment is designed to protect. Thanks money point well taken by Richard next on the program good afternoon. Bobby -- captain known great minds think alike I read the article -- beyond Carroll thought I think it was Friday. In the last job paragraph. Bubbles was quoted as saying. This city has about social justice. That I read that and I went through to rule like call the mayor Todd -- and asked the -- the other -- -- I'd like to leave a comment for the mayor. Scioscia actually popped me right up to his office and I got one of the secretaries up there. I thought I was gonna get a recorded you know leave a message I would so -- that it bit. Just give me your mailing address because I don't want a -- Q what's -- you attempt. You know my data to wipe a lot to feel like it's I don't want I want Bill Weir I'm not want -- however I'm looking at chick filet record. What they've done for society. What they do for society every. Private business in this country and I'm I think it could be idiot see it if it's. I guess they're beyond belief that it's not -- bad. I mean he's he's an embarrassment port city that he claimed we're award class -- OK so sold to a job that brought special interest groups. What were they silent majority forget about it you'd need not apply here. You. There late to worry -- -- -- comment this is the what he was referring to the Menino said quote. It doesn't send the right message to the country were a leader warning comes to social justice and opportunities for all on quote. Opportunities for all -- -- Does that include opportunities. For people who disagree with your political philosophy. Opportunities for people who'd say that they have a different position on marriage than you do can include opportunities for them. Opportunities for all -- they were as I say they weren't even restricting entry of the -- trust that -- just comment or comments made by the present. He doesn't get it -- for those should report vicious criminal. And they should be action taken. We'll see if Martha Coakley doesn't think about it. You mean when the US attorneys can step -- is after all to constitutional violation. Back on the other -- with some discussions about the president of the United States I'm not enough. Welcome back -- -- -- -- -- -- some other -- couple small ones share. Ashland Massachusetts. Wonder Reza one for Dallas 26 years old. Plead guilty to charges he planned to bomb the Pentagon and US capitol building is slave to spend seventeen years in jail not enough. Rose one for a Dutch. No no names is sort of jump Irish. Democratic Convention. Big splash made. Last year high profile announcement the 2012 Democratic National Convention would be the first in history. Not to rely on special interest money. And now they organize version Charlotte have quietly set up a nonprofit entity. To take in corporate cash Bank of America Wells Fargo. Duke Energy ball send checks to new Americans see ink. Nonprofit -- being run by top officials on the convention host committee. Corporate money is bankrolling operations in direct support of the convention. Paying the salaries of 41. Full time host committee employees. Their health insurance and for the office is where they work. Also paying for parties to the delegates and don't -- the media welcome bash true Brian Ross will be there. And the Labor Day street festival. Kicking off the week's events. Also providing transportation. For the convention delegates including. Buses and a fleet of courtesy cars. Dan Murray the -- -- director those two -- share I guess she comes down to how you define to the convention. The distinction we've -- is that there official convention activities that are in the program. But all that stuff happens outside of that. Not break. Spell hypocrisy and few days ago Barack Obama. Made a comment nice country several comments. Disparaging people. Or at least he achievements of people who have. Been successful in business. And may be loyal to start -- -- that clip where Shaq. They clip whereas. Barack Obama talking about. Business. Started the candidates running. If you've been successful you don't even get gone wrong. Don't know and I'm always talk about people who thank. Well remotely -- was just so Smart. It must be because now. Ward told her nobody else climate -- the whole want to know what company. If you are successful somebody on the line. On the -- -- someone in your life. Some laid -- took away. This unbelievable American system that we have been allowed you to thought. Some invest in roads and bridges that you got a business. That even bill that. Somebody else. I didn't get invented out of its own. Okay -- library and the whole thing should they weren't having argument about context. First let's take this apart purse wallet -- -- morons in the crowd agreeing with -- million they didn't do anything. I noticed mr. Obama beat the infrastructure you talk about. Even the great teacher that's there for everybody I notice you didn't build a business. And all the people in the crowd there they didn't build -- is either. He talked about he's always struck by people who say that because social intelligent. I'd like you to give meaning -- I never came across and you want a -- -- for a couple of times. Come in contact with a lot of them are never camel crush anyone who was so in. -- in love with his own powers that he thought he just did it without the slightest bit of help for many more. But the infrastructure talk about is there for all. And you're very few. Even try to become entrepreneurs tried mr. Obama. And fewer of them succeed the failure rate of start up enterprises is over 90%. You talked about people being bright yet you can be a bright person you can have a chair Harvard. But that doesn't mean you'll be a good on -- -- and I asked for working hard -- you -- sixteen hours a day on an assembly line somewhere. That's not gonna build the business you may hold down jobs the fly more power to you. But that doesn't build a new vision is and create new jobs. Well Paula can't seem to understand it is that there are a handful of people. Who are willing to take the risk who do work very hard. And there should show us well maybe they got some breaks along the way you can be sure they got some anti breaks. And regulations that you promulgate and and government intrusion that you -- in favor of Obama. What's interesting about this. Easy nor is the -- immigration of people have been successful. And by the way. Nobody nobody disputes. That that. We stand on the shoulders of giants who have put on the things in place. We all know that we riding cars -- we didn't invent. We brought on roads we didn't build. Yes thank you Isaac Newton -- Feagles MA until the laws of gravitational. And -- administration backed Archimedes and the tigris got it. We use lightbulbs Edison invented them you didn't Obama we know that we know we used. The things that have been invented by others and we build on them but only a small number of people. Hustle -- apparently are able to come up with the next step. I'm sure Bill Gates is aware that Microsoft wouldn't exist if the transistor had been invented. And you and I wouldn't be communicating. If DeForest and invented the -- -- in 1907. Got it. Nobody's disputing that. Nobody ever show dual mode when stored in Sherwood forest I had done trio bill doesn't work that way. The what's going on. Here you notice. Is. The deregulation. Did the diminution of people have been successful. Now -- or something about the psychology. It says something about the psychology of Obama. And the psychology of the crowd that was cheering whenever he said that. It's a mind of somebody who's a second great personality. Because he tries to disparage. People of achievement. If you have a vision issue didn't build that. That's how you didn't. Anybody who's been an entrepreneur or been involved where the entrepreneurs huge did do it and most of the time. You stared at the abyss along the way. We weren't sure was gonna make it then you're well aware that 90% plus of the enterprise that started trail. We get there despite government not because of government despite all regulations. And people like me you don't telling us we shouldn't say certain things but for Obama take that point of view. And to try to disparage achievement says something about him remember come across people. Who tried to denigrate sign to -- because every once in awhile scientist who come across something accidentally. You've heard about the -- looking for one -- saw something else and it turned into a significant discover. But the key dared the genius there is the scientists who came across the more accidental fine. Then he's able to. Identify it. Analyze it and build on it. But some people try to make its own scientists really aren't so Smart they they just sort of bomb you to think you know. After all boom shooting Mirren apple fell instead. -- god you would -- up warmer have been able to come up with the law of gravity. Everybody talks about how Obama. Has his overwhelming self confidence. But you know that kind -- -- learned early on school the bribe -- to. Isn't saying only sings about himself. Because he thinks she's good. He's saying only springs about himself he's bragging because he's insecure. Because he has doubts about his own ability and his own achievement level. And when you try to. Run down somebody was successful. If that's what you need in order to justify. Your own status in life if you have to. Undercut the success of others in order to make yourself feel equal to them. Then there's something very wrong with you psychologically. Your second great person. And this is what Obama is doing any does it consistently this particular quote. Is. Particularly for. Particularly. Identifying. Of his philosophy but he says these kinds of things all the time. Now wanna have something else into this. This is not something which is you people should or should get off social for the time. It was a slip of the time by the way they've before -- get that I -- to talk about his background. But to try to make this he should call the bogus. This is Obama responding because -- Republicans jumped on. In interviewing a Tallahassee television station Obama said. What I -- was together we build roads and we build bridges on quote that's not what he says this it we just heard the quote -- say that. Guess influential think about infrastructure but that's not what the -- envoy. Position nobody is disputing that fellow. Well there's a long history. Of this kind of thinking. Remember he spent 22 years in the church of Jeremiah Wright he identified Jeremiah Wright as his mentor was a mentor me. It means somebody who's thinking you absorb. And you process into your own philosophy. And you fall along the same line. Okay let's just. To give some context to where Obama is being for most of his adult life before he ended up. In the presidency. Here's some reminders. Our Jeremiah Wright let's start with the wind it's become famous or infamous. They damn America speech which is. There are several of the several of these you put together you have heard or shekel can run put. All I've read my big mouth. I know that there. -- -- -- -- The enemy is mad at -- -- then you have being good turnaround and no he ain't bill did not just like he. Monica no wins game. Women give him that -- love him they don't blue it's. Green I. Yeah I want to welcome. It's. Yeah. Okay. We welcome -- And we know how -- -- then. We have supported state terrorism against Palestinians. How we present day. -- -- The government allowed about it hey dad these sirens have been me from -- side but again we'll -- -- Norris the last one about HIV than he claimed he would he sang mirrors at the -- American government invented the HIV. The Irish to wipe out black people. Now it is Obama's. Mentor. First series of those they're from different sermons. Have put together not a particularly clippers can even find it on non YouTube. Fish is the man that Barack Obama says is look for the person I follow in thinking. This is a church that he was in for 22 years this is the man he married who married. Him and his wife Michelle Obama now if you have any doubts about this. Rorschach run the clipped a war. Obama talks about Wright being the best. To Reverend Wright. My pastor who I I speak about the chapter in the book I think represents the best of what the black church just off. -- Don't give me this vision she didn't know. He wasn't sure 22 years you sent in that -- this is the background. Another clip Jeremiah Wright this time on socialism marxism you have that. -- -- -- -- -- Okay and I'm grateful for the opportunity to bring you. A word of thanks giving from those who don't ordinarily get a hearing. This is why -- they go along with the program sing in tune with whatever is the popular tune stay in lock step. With the political pundits who tell us what is politically correct what is permissible. And what will be tolerated from a person of color in this land the land of greed and the home of the brave. Excuse me command of the green and home of the -- That should notice in the audience playing real soon ethical culture gathering British couple -- left wing. Quasi religious group. The land of the greed and the -- obviously. This is such Jeremiah Irish speaking. Had a podium here in public positions where Barack Obama is coming -- And this is his mentor so when you talk about the vision of America. When he talks of disparagingly. About business this is not a fluke. There's a lot of bogus remark -- and our bridges and Roche. It's where Obama is coming fraud and has come from his entire adult life. He joined that church said he was 25 years old ran for president at 47. And it was in the middle of that campaign that you finally. Disavowed Jeremiah Wright. This is the vision of America that Barack Obama has -- Mitt Romney wants to compare visions of America. This is the one that he should differentiate from. Karl Rove has said it would be stupid to bring them Jeremiah Wright. Because Jewish litigated to his work or not litigated last time bye bye John McCain. Well I I think Karl Rove was terrific political analysts and operated. We disagree -- I think the country needs to be reminded. That this is Barack Obama's vision of America and this is what he wants to do this is his starting point. If he gets reelected. Okay -- if you take a break we don't know the telephone lines are okay. -- 7746943221. Of the advantages of being a talk show -- you do get to vent every once wild hope that some people with you. Telling your next on the program thanks for waiting -- or capture online hold that. Cardinal problem I think that. Felt like -- just a little levity to this is my -- This pretty intense. But I mean I just celebrated my sixth here and -- and business I I repair commercial cooking equipment for a living. And have to hone my skills for 27 years. I would just like to give a shadow. To. Fremont street in Dartmouth street for the U restaurants that they were allowed -- that they allowed to be built there. I'd also like to give thanks to be chemistry and that they allowed Boston University built there. I would like to give thanks to commonwealth they have that they put people to -- On commonwealth seven numerous other restaurants from Boston to Brookline. And so I have a live at a limited amount of time I just would like to. Just like to give thanks to many of the streets of Boston and hope for many years of continued success. -- well you don't feel the -- thanks for I downtrend exactly yeah. Yeah you know that's of course what it is we should all get down on these thank you for the street and incidentally. You know. It's not like people in business don't pay taxes. He may make it sound like everybody build the bridges in the roads except for the people in business. And those -- people wages used the -- the roads and the bridges for their own advantage. And the Internet -- -- that stuff. That's not the case at all. Know people in higher income brackets. Pay more in taxes. They pay a higher rate on average of taking everything into account. And they pay and they pay more in terms of the actual numbers of dollars. Sure nobody is raising this is as saying somehow we don't have taken participation here. It's not that way at all. The only question is how much. Obama talks about. No gee we need to have a fair shot to everybody pays him a fair amount -- define fairness. Seems to me that those since the people in the higher brackets in the business people are anything more. -- -- an argument that they're already they're paying their fair shot by the way he Norris and warned that this. British to some extent is coming down to a question. Where there we want to have them guiding principle be economic growth or economic fairness. Nor -- chooses to candidates divide on this. Which is more important at a time where we have a relatively stagnant economy and higher unemployment. Would you prefer that the economy that's the big guy encryption would be one of growth or some kind of vague and undefined argument to fairness she of course -- translates that the -- -- name brought to pay more. From 617 this is the weak attempt by Obama to rationalize Solyndra and Cape Wind. I don't know they strive to rationalize that I. I mentioned embarrassment Geary took him by the way lamenting about entrepreneur or she's.
