All right we're gonna give Beck talking about this year you know what the you know what the issue is are we what -- what about the fact that seven million helpful. Twice California. Voted Californians vote for us the very. Adverse state -- Twice they vote for the first time the the big -- got thrown out. They got thrown out saying that it it was a improperly. They re drew the native an amendment to the state constitution. Noticing it discriminates now now all the democratic politicians. Did not tomorrow they argue big dome defense of marriage. Now this was passed in 1996. By the Republican congress. And signed into law. By. President Clinton. He signed -- -- now he says it's unconstitutional. OK so President Clinton was for. The defense of marriage act before he was against the defense of marriage -- same for his wife Hillary. She was for the defense of marriage act before she was against the defense of marriage. Then you have Barack Obama. He supported traditional marriage when he was in the one when he was running for president. He when he was running for the Illinois State Senate in Chicago. He was four game which. -- was against -- so they was against gay marriage. Then now he's become four game paired together so you might say that Barack Obama the current president of the United States. Was Ford gay marriage before he was against gay marriage before he was four game which. OK so you know the big big the that -- they don't. Have too much consistency. Just they're following the polls are like that don't like -- whether you know whichever way the wind and I I know this is a bad word to say blows whichever way the wind blows. So much for the will of the people satisfied away exactly. Who balanced budget is bad who was Evelyn that was -- -- war -- Remember him when he ran for governor of Massachusetts. Ran for governor of Massachusetts I asked -- what's the western -- county in Massachusetts. He chemistry down that's when you get these and that's what you can get these carpetbaggers every time I ask about Berkshire County eskimo. You know really confuses -- mystic Connecticut River. The commanding -- in the Connecticut River is in Massachusetts how command big. Granny Warren thought there was -- seacoast in Massachusetts and and a Robert BA share. From Pittsburg PA. Thought that. But that the we needed no work for you to know where we're Berkshire County was you'd know what he never heard of Berkshire county and you know like I had lived in the state a lot longer than my -- Warren that. All right that's like proposition two and a half the voting does not stop until it passes very go to -- I'd like -- have mentioned that earlier. 187746943221877. You know. That thing is you you don't -- I don't know if you've given at a given it much thought about what this is this is gonna lead to Wednesday. You know to think about this. The a husband cannot testify against a wife and vice verse. You understand that right. Spousal. Privilege spousal immunity okay. Stevie Flemmi was divorced. That the guy that rifle man is the biography. Stevie Flemmi was the worst when he was never -- They could've gotten married. If if this had if the if they had -- gay marriage had been passed and they were still around are not in prison or on the -- they quite gotten married and not testify against each other. I give you another example. My friend Mary -- Manning. You know who was on the governor's council very very diligent worker very. Very serious warrior very serious researcher would be would would have been a great investigative reporter. She -- somebody that was up for judgeship gonna get a promotion. This woman had written in in one -- for judicial reviews she had said that the that that that this guy had. Had been accused of reaping his nephew. You've been accused of breaking his nephew so it was it was incest. Right. And this this person who wanted to be promoted to. To the next level of the judiciary. Had said that it really wasn't a crime. Because. Incest. Laws were designed. To prevent that I inter breeding and genetic defects being passed down from generation to generation. And since cents. In a week sodomizing. You're nephew. Would not by mam I -- uncle would not produce a child he was not guilty of any crimes. And she said Mary on me and said it's somebody's got this kind of views. I don't think I want them on the bench. And how many out there even if your -- how many out there think that's a little bit far. As the as a view. And yet after that that she was she was pilloried. By the by the gay and lesbian transgender etc. She was. She she was you know I asked over and over again in the mass lawyers weekly for for saying. And I just think that the you know which it's not you you mark my words I mean you know I mean they they laughed they laugh at. Rick Santorum you know why I think -- -- -- some ways it's crazy myself. But he's not crazy when he says that it's this gay marriage is not the end it's not the and you what do. Incest beast reality -- more feet polygamy. People are gonna be marrying. People my eighty years old with big pensions are going to be marrying their granddaughters. -- grandsons to walk past the pension down. It's. It's. You know these pensions want forever hazardous. You know -- they have to what that they add to their two people in the United States and still get pensions as a as children of civil war veterans. Think about what they think about what this would lead to -- -- if everybody could marry the thing hand down their pensions. Becoming people would end up with pensions. And there's just the big sign on the turnpike it says. Big billboard also makes me think Michael biased -- -- for couple months now. The first person to live to 150 years old is living now. Big -- you could skip a pension or you can -- a pension going for 300. 400 year. It's 18774694322. Evolving paradigms began evolving paradigms. So -- Bowman is unsettled law. Yes it has because it's in it -- gay marriage so of course it's unsettled law even though was it even though was -- Passed by congress -- large majorities and signed into law. It and I think they also say. What you care repeal gay marriage because has been going on for four years you know we've had for four years. That's that's you know that means it's me it's been go on forever you know we're gonna don't let the people of America. -- Beaumont was passed in 1996. Have been around for seventeen years there you repeal. 186. 18774694322. 18774694322. Obama's not evil -- gave Mary cheese and revolving yeah that's true that's a good way to put it provoked it. Like the weather today. You know spanning. Around and around and around in the wind. Mike you're next with how we cargo that Mike. Point three times this -- been put on them and ballots and then to try and put it to restate that it's gone down to defeat. As one thing I don't do that in this pandemic cannot reconcile whenever I see the debate about this drives me nuts. Prevail we say all the polls indicate that if people. -- you don't let Mike that you how many times have you read that in the globe and that's why it was said when they were they were trying to stop it from coming to a vote. If they believe their own polls I would think they would want it to be on the ballot. I think we respect what you think you could do me in the U listening audience of paper and get a copy of some of these that the questions that they ask in kind of find out who's doing couple who -- targeting. Because something's wrong here. He did you can't be that you can't be 180 degrees of Pope could be wrong but but they have been. So wrong yet that it's almost like it is living on -- -- and -- -- under. And I'm wondering if you could -- I'd like I have been pulled I'd like to know how the questions being that you could skew the question they get an aunt that you know I'd like. No I think a lot of this is just you know people you don't you're bombarded with this propaganda you know war around the clock in in every form of media. I mean it's don't you think some people are entering -- poll of polls just just want to say the politically correct thing. The -- that the the questioner is gonna think that there were retro bigots. That's right I think that's I think that's a lot but I I really would like that I'd just like this is to know hop what what what kind of questions they ask the people because -- -- -- -- appetite. Because the -- into the ballot box. When they typically get. And then -- -- vote against that everything everything into the paint and an end yet in yet. -- date of the if you if you fought game if you just do you discount to be affected the people want sound defeat twenties state but they've all become your Bible. Right right to bend but and again that you say. But you say -- one IP if you're gonna win the election let's have -- election you shouldn't be afraid and they said you can't put civil rights on the ballot. Now what you can but it's okay to -- -- improv group. -- -- -- like I did I just I would really I would -- said well certainly would appreciate. It. I don't know what they I don't know what the questions are bothered. What they they get the results they won. -- you know you know that like to get the results they want to in the in the poll questions especially in things like this mean you I think polls are legit sometimes in the most of the time they're legit you know their polling a primary. You know Woolsey Woolsey if -- -- and to have her or mention mark winter marquee. The most culturally jet because there's no there's no particular acts that.
