Mumbled Menino listen listen -- this he's he is -- is comparing. People. Who want to exercise their civil rights to own a gun to the Ku Klux Klan you're gonna -- stories started really here. Only your argument you made earlier about it also -- our approach which we've all been saying around this table from the very beginning the polls also show. And Americans don't speak. That guidance by themselves for the main driver of violence that it does have to do with violent culture than it does have to do with -- -- -- have -- does have to do with a coarsening of American culture. All guns at the end game -- made -- a lot of sadly it's up to it but and and it all these component parts claimed its other responsibility in our race is not about the guns.

Total violation of a formal rights of African Americans as they march in Selma lots and they left. Bull -- and it -- Democrat of south from the clan takeover of their culture and effect and become a face up.

There were few brave souls who did and they were knocked down pretty applause comparing an executive member for crying out in -- you might say mom's cigarette even on the liberal way. About the right of African Americans should be able voted for example the walking and -- and they wanted to keep them. But that was a lot of silence at the time now it's time for the people who do have strong feelings who who are feeling that they can't do anything about it.

Who aren't registered gun owners who who are who are voting down. As as being green -- that 18774694322. On how we car. 1877469432218774694322. How we if you have -- files you should have Turner Classic Movies channel 230 check it out I looked up my sheets will all the channels on the -- to a palace it too -- fine. And I clicked on to wait five minutes said the you don't have this I wish I was kind of surprised. But I must say I'm watching Turner Classic Movies lately because the TV I have most of was really crappy. I was just watch and games and Fox News that was about it. And so I'll check tonight and see if it's -- see if I do have I hope I haven't -- I don't wanna make make another call. 1877. -- Ray Nagin indicted on corruption charges yet we I know we play that we haven't in the intro. The Angel of death was flying overhead that any had a subpoena in his hand. -- I actually have an indictment and seeing an excuse me there was a pretty clear that it was going to be indicted on those surprises there but you know I'm I'm try I'm personally trying not to let it destroy my faith in the India political culture. Of of Louisiana the great state of Louisiana and in Orleans parish in particular week you're next with how we cargo heavily. -- -- low -- taken my com thank royal blue. -- and I just -- -- -- comments about that article you're just reading and I've been thinking hasn't saying that for about a couple of weeks now let. It seems that the rest of America and that people are tired of being governed by these. Bi coastal bipolar cities the crime riddled cities that aren't like the rest of the country. And they can't control -- that's pool but it these cities have become so to the country has to have their rights slowly chipped away at our tax to about. Padilla -- has said that the -- the rub between you know the cities in the suburbs -- every issue we've been financially. You have no way you know it's again -- this idea Greenfield is right he's right about BA BA and -- -- I mean they they said the reason they may Brian white poster boy for aids was because. He wasn't like everybody else getting the getting the disease and how that got this guy Adam lands he's just a suburban ness suburban night you know why. Why eight -- had whose whose whose mother had registered guns and so they're making him the poster boy for. Call the gun violence when when he's he's a you know -- 88 they not they not the typical example of the people were killing one another. And another reason the liberal there's so and infuriated. With the NRA and the reason that there's the NRA is so popular how awful because not because of their money or -- lobbying and influence it's because it's. Of the people in the constitution and the Second Amendment right. You know it it's just that there -- they happen to be linked to gun manufacturers. But that's everything that they are popular and and get -- that they employment that they do. Document that here's figures appalling from NBC news in the Wall Street Journal remember NBC news you mean the Wall Street Journal is down the middle it's it's sort of semi -- liberal news coverage in very conservative editorially. But NBC news is totally left wing all -- left wing and its problems of America. Fresh polling by NBC in the Wall Street Journal showed 41% of people had a favorable opinion of the NRA while 34%. Viewed it unfavorably a margin largely unchanged from a similar survey in January 2011. I mean and can you know. I mean you we can't even begin to imagine the anti gun rhetoric that is always in the airwaves since since the massacre at C Andy -- right. NNN has. Hasn't changed anybody's minds. You know the mainstream media just been throwing in itself what these stories strike did try to gin up. Hysteria. And it's it's just not -- and -- hasn't had any impact because. Even the people voted for Obama realize it's BS. Click the blue fitting event the -- -- that's tools they need to take care of the crime there first before they came up a lot for everyone else. Thanks for the Carly. One H Obama is hiding behind new -- this is the end of the Astoria on front front page magazine Obama is hiding behind Newtown and adorable little kids. And from the grim Specter of Obama America's death tall it's buried inside the gruesome figures of how many Americans are shot dead each year issued as an indictment against the entire country in general. And gun owners in particular but those numbers are in my. An indictment of America or of gun owners they are an indictment of Democrat mayors and liberal social policy they are an indictment of Obama. We need to set aside the same old -- social justice rhetoric and have a serious conversation about what is wrong with the world in Chicago and Detroit. 18774694322. 1877469432. To the NRA is already in the midst of a membership boom. As the actions taken by Obama and in particular is executive orders convince people look the threat of government seizing guns are rolling limiting gun ownership is real. The group presented 250000. More members since gun control re emerged in the national debate and have a 400000. More. Follow worst which FaceBook page. So you know this is -- people. You know. People wake up when they are there there -- directly threatened now. Whether it's you know I've seen happen before -- a a sense it's -- beginning that happened not what these taxes in Massachusetts when they realize. That this that that this Governor Deval Patrick is is totally nuts. And that he wants to YE he he wants to ship all the taxes to people. Who earned money who work for money and and ship all taxes away from the people who don't work for their money. That's what the sales that's what's that about what pujols sales tax going down is about. He wants to make sure that the you know but think about the sales taxes even even illegal aliens are forced to paste this pay the sales tax but there are going to be anymore. Because the sales tax is going down the income tax on how we are.
