When they bought ice pack -- -- stock with my own money that I worked hard that to get in the and I get a dividend. From the stock I bought with my own money. That's un earned income -- the liberals call unearned income. Yet. Welfare recipients who never have worked. The money they get from the people who work is an entitlement. How is how was money that they didn't earn an entitlement of money you you did burn and invest unearned income. And of course this woman Sheila Jackson she was Sheila Jackson Lee is just out out of her mind rush mentioned as a about an hour ago that that she's the one who went to NASA one time and that they they showed. They show one of these little lot. That little pro pro being vehicles that they had on on Mars and they had video called the Mars rover to Mars rover thank you probe the row over something like that. The Mars rover choose Canada video -- live broadcast of the Mars rover she says it. One that you make you go over and visit that visit worth a flag yes. But the astronauts plan that. See she. Confused. Mars and the moon. And did have also been stories -- I guess so. Whatever whatever airline flies for my DC Houston I don't puts America camera or you know I hated her belt but.

And -- she's just that she is she's a dumb as a rock. And didn't -- in chi. She has these now she has these even Craig I don't. Saying an entitlement is earned his is crazy is crazy. You know decisions she each of course she's not talking about Social Security -- welfare. So -- what is the poll question today and a what are the results thus far. Congressman Sheila Jackson Lee says entitlements. Are earned. What do you agree that the congressman no I do not. I'm sure you'll be shocked to know that 96%. Currently do not agree to these congressmen me. I'll tell you there was a lot of nutty stuff here today on the there was a lot of crazy stuff here. How about do we have the that Nancy Pelosi -- about the Christmas. And other holidays when you're entitlement Kwanzaa no but it does she mentioned by I was I was gonna like. Surprise people when they heard it you -- Now we don't have okay. All right we'll look for that. Via we're hearing even Morse -- stuff but we're gonna talk about the. So but the the situation in Lansing Michigan the other day is even he is even more noxious with the union protesters then than it than we have been told. And here's some here's some more you know as you know this guy Steve Crowder pharma fox. I got a lot of by the video of him being that knocked to the ground and that the union thugs talking about -- but haven't gone. All the sort of thing. But down. There was another -- there was another incident that I haven't seen anything I haven't seen much about in the he is anywhere including fox. And this was in the way in Lansing before the vote on the right to work -- the state at the State Capitol two days ago. And apparently there was a hot dog vendor in this hot dog -- isn't as a black guy and he's a conservative. And so he figured that you know he would go to the -- -- -- worked as the side of the audience that was for the right to work laws may have a lot of people in Lansing new -- And so he's pretty popular with the conservatives and appeal on the sign honest honest -- for whatever by. Anyway he was with the he would he was with the the right to work people when the union thugs -- Kimba. And guess what the union protesters this is from William Jacobson who well we put on the show before from legal insurrection dot com. Union protesters called hot dog vendor uncle pom and the -- word. But you won't hear about it in the mainstream media. You may have also heard the story of hot dog vendor whose equipment and supplies were deliberately destroyed by the union protesters remember. The only unit though they were saying last -- there was a guy on -- Helio last night with Steve Crowder in the Nikkei it was a union and he kept saying to you. Union people don't you understand -- frighten. They're frightened for their future. They're so I guess all that's an old because they they were there so frightened that they had they decided to to take this guys as a hot dog guy at heart. You don't talk about that's the I mean how much smaller of a businessman QB that to have hot dog cart that your role around. And they want what they wrecked his they they they wrecked his his heart and that they read and they destroyed all of the supplies. But unless you read conservative blogs and web site should not heard that the union protesters. Shouted racial slurs at the -- including the and word. Leo stress extranet -- bright part dot com has an interview with command which he details what happened. I'd -- in a lotion or view the men also when he were counted how we was called Ian ward the mainstream media is silent about the union violence in general because it does not fit their narrative. And the racial content of conduct of the members is off limits progressives are spreading conspiracy theories that this was all staged. It was well who who upstaged it. Why would why would. Why would anybody -- have gone after a guy who was on the on the side of the the Republicans were trying to pass this right to work legislation. We asked this question time and again and again as -- William Jacobson. YT if that bit Tea Party had done us. Do you do you think that this would be on national TV if the Tea Party. Had had had that on this if they had on the end. And to and take a black ice hot hot dog vendor and taken his cart and I destroyed it. And that turned overall to supplies onto the ground and stomped that you think you'd think that might get caught the attention. Of the mainstream media but not -- not not a not object. 1870. Excellence as Andrew Sullivan is -- sold on the guy who's promoting best that it may be a conspiracy. He is also is is Andrew Sullivan the guy who was said -- he thought that. That. Sarah Palin slash trial the one I was born with the Down syndrome.

This is about the American people people watching your show drinking their coffee wanted to happen and pay their bills and how does this affect them. How they pay their bills having. Reach retirement -- they send their kids to school in the rest of that this has. Is relevant to their lives and that is why you cannot be frivolous about it just get it done whatever it is getting it done. And make a corrections or expansions on it. And next year than you have to know that they can pay the bills and -- your holiday bills next year leader Pelosi thank you for joining us -- I thought etc. that's not a the this the part where she I want I want -- Quantico quote Justin do you find it will most partake in a few calls. 18774694322187746943.

And eat yet he was probably about the same things the guy in bath iron works was talking about and attacks the other day about you know. He would have to wait you also opened -- would have to be moved in that have to wait for the for the guy from the other union to come by and move it before they could work. And pretty soon on the you know pretty soon they couldn't compete and I and -- this guy was tell me said he that they sold at the shipyard was taken over by the workers. And this is the workers took over the shipyard all of these roles went away. We just had kids they had and instead heaven you know. One one electrician. From the electricians union who could only handle the electric problems and -- and one by somebody from the plumbers union to handle -- up plumbing. That was going on on the building they just had mechanics. You know they just had jacks of all -- because they they they -- like suddenly they weren't competition they owned. The the they owned the the corporation and they couldn't survive with the old union Rawls. 18774694322. Taxpayer money is being used to provide those jobs bath iron works those jobs should be open to anyone even nonunion workers exactly. That's a whole problem -- Davis bacon. You know. -- whenever they talk about you know repairing the infrastructure what they're talking about it it's. Cold word to the unions to the trade unions. There's say that what they're saying is will get you some Davis bacon jobs. And he you know you'll get paid forty bucks an hour where is on a private sector job what non union you get twenty bucks an hour which is what it's world which is what your of your labor is war. When you get right down to -- in most cases. So what you don't -- you have all these roads allegedly being repaired but they're costing 234 times as much as they as they should because.
