Hey -- and I am I don't know sports show 170 inevitably 260. 170 as the number 8668890. -- seventy is that hole for Chinese companies and stories and attacks I don't have a whole bunch detects. I'll bottles that we and the pot today -- set the stage -- fast forward Charlie is -- when he hung on through the break. Two of the things we're talking about -- the -- of the military we had my clients on CBS a military expert retired. Army major -- to West Point. Two things number one the suicide rate they're more suicides in the military than there are our soldiers killed by combat. There are more suicides than combat deaths in the military and how they are approaching. Fixing that problem second thing is a bill. The defense spending bill. And it's an amendment that somebody's trying to push through its arguing back and forth about it. But basically what it boils down to the VA has determined that somebody is incapable of handling their own personal financial affairs. And they want to put him on the list that keeps you from purchasing a garden that's operating opinion poll should veterans that have been determined unable owned. And able to handle their own affairs and finance will be allowed to own guns 64% of you responding saying no this is a non scientific poll it's just beaten. Is on line and decides they want cancer vote but it does an idea of what you think what to think about a third thing has its sewage and water board. The president of the of the City Council Stacey head want to postpone. Postpone the vote on that but she was over rule. In a statement released by the -- coalition and open government had objected and asked for a delay of the vote she said more public opinion needs to be heard on this important issue. A decision of this magnitude deserves much public discussion of scrutiny it said this vote is premature. And I see no reason to rush to conclusion in the next four days. However the the rain Manning who is the president pro tem of the sues -- -- that to say we are rushing is a gross characterization of the facts. There have been over thirty publicly noticed -- to mortar board meeting the time to act is now. So that is the time to act now or you wanna have more say so over. And frankly do you trust on the race a race they're gonna double the rates in the next eight years. And they supposedly gonna use that money to fix all the poems. All the all the leaking pipes and all the busted everything the sewage and water board mess that's under the streets of the city you know lawns. You ready for them to raise their rates somebody suggested bonding and out it is don't let him raise the rates because once they get their hands on the rates they're never gonna go down again. So where do you stand on that all of -- that all of that is in our pot. Let's get back to the files Charley thanks for hanging on through the break Europe and Urbina BO. Sure sure before the break we talked about the newspaper or already in place. And our. Mentally incompetent like that people who -- Yeah and drug addictions in the past although they may be over all the. Can also be an example where veteran is determined by what. Psychiatrists. Are being having mental instability or or or maybe. Prone to commit suicide. -- no doubt that. -- that sort of thing about that would stop already laws that would stop searching for in addition today -- Apart aren't could you carry permit by if I am today as being having little. Disorder I have determined that I have charmed the continent not a requirement that state that already require that. The people who. More ways that a federal requirement as they were -- Because the status of one issue -- Not a state record. But at the people who want to broaden the control. And also the street want and don't want the current laws and force because of the court almost. Or enforce. And think at worst they can say oh look what we've done not work. What we need to do it was enforced the laws that we already placed. That that sent people to jail while there are other applications. Target and that's our control and has. Straw and straw purchases already canceled Armitage on -- up there and Johnson and -- Volatile person straw -- ordeal. Now. The other thing you know it. We have to watch more or overseeing this combining for it and this is this is what example not a very good example but I know people don't drink and art. To board to function war alcoholics. What they like when they go to the river go fishing a few Beers. -- all -- now in the easier if you. Have a few Beers and you blow possible breathalyzer. Or a game and fish course and cold you'll -- -- -- and your issue could be your your convicted. And just because you drink and you can operate a -- -- thirty -- an -- -- Does that actually mean that Europe of course that you're the same course and that would drinking get a vehicle. You. I don't chew me out there. Mean. Argument is I think is that you're operating a motor vehicle which is what a boat if I mean if you're out there and canoe would battle. And and and you'd -- test positive for beer. -- -- -- -- that's -- I'm -- -- up a new -- panel if I'm not operate a motorized vehicle and then the rest of its vote their business. I mean if I'm float and in an it inner tube in a river and rest assured if you ever Simi flow in an inner tube and river. I was asked you at the safe and you can put money on that. Last mullah sport you know in dealing with government agencies and I don't -- -- all -- partner with them some of the time. I have have run across people. Who it -- government. Who gave me the impression that that's what they work for the government -- -- Smart work anywhere else. -- they're they're the they're racing to be court in this optional war. Not very bright so. Exactly who in the -- the VA is making good decisions that you can't handle your fares start of the war and number two is. Why do we think it's okay to allow the government to make judgment so that we can handle on it. And that's my point is if it wants to make that kind of determination fine but -- this in the information. Down on the road and and a charge is gonna determine whether or not you're gonna take my Second Amendment Rights away from me not you know Europe bureaucrat you don't get to make that call. Somebody who sit behind a bench with a with a gavel because I have an appeal to him. If you what if if some bureaucrat what's my name on the list I'm -- and I have nobody to fight. Sure they'll get to the same point is if you are not able -- your partner is that your -- with money in the also means that also had anything to do -- You're ability for -- handle far in -- situation where you know you need to protect your credit. Well let's let's look at it like this if that's the case that we need I wanna know the credit score of every police officer in the state Louisiana. You go to paying got a 700 credits or what they -- impact on. -- that's exactly right and I think I think what we're seeing is we're seeing today paid a methodology or excuse to put another expert. You know -- -- -- -- you know what we're gonna look at old here what are you think it'll work finances well you know what. Bear market for an -- that's the -- -- bogus let's enforce the laws in place. I'm what you are appreciative to hang -- on it Charley thanks to Bondsman. 26 so when it seventies and number 866 that it nines heroic semi -- -- Oprah do you -- have been issued from middle horseback. You can get a deal on a bicycle you'll get a DI in Louisiana while riding a bicycle. You can get a deal kind. On a bicycle if you get a whole -- -- attacks about Batman thing. Bull any means of conveyance so any -- so far float in inner tube down river. An ounce. Haven't Abacha Coleman's. And not necessarily some doctored but I'm certainly going to be paso eight. I'm gonna give it to you line. For badly manipulating. An inner tube that's being carried by. The current. I think that's too many laws on the books. Do you -- and issued a medal -- horseback I suppose I just let the reins go with the horse take me home. You get a DU are on a bicycle. I tell you what man it's just too many I'm which I'm which it -- Charlie let's let's let's actually. That's actually enforce the laws that are on the books but let's go through the books and sort Clinton's problem. 26017866889087. They are told -- 78 Sony's recent attacks a bunch of stuff in the pot. And give away a pair tickets to go seek it rocked this hour make sure you listen up for that. Just a -- gonna get a traffic reports new folks driving home you know what's going on then -- -- a couple cough because we gotta talk. I. I. Amanda apparently -- -- and on the river and an attitude Torrington it is -- some text messages and conversations. And on to at Immunex that apparently got to read a couple of these Saunders -- wants a man got -- do you line overriding -- war. Here's another one. Early two thousands of man arrested -- parade -- same and our parents drawn on horseback tubing is passive the line not applicable. But what about what if I have a panel in my idea in my past that you. Talk about lawnmower -- lawn -- Keyword is motorized. And here's a here's a Texan and back to the phones. I've been a public defender for fifteen years I've never seen a DW argument for bike car truck motorcycle and boat. But not bikes bikes have always been given public intoxication or are -- ago. Publicly intoxicated -- mr. -- Although I'm tool for them and really play that game more 260 wanna seventies and number -- and stuff and popped it back to your phone calls Jim -- threatening and on your next up on W Libya. They got a book value lines. It was from the sort of more work -- -- I find it extremely amusing that the train people had gotten -- tradition think they're going to get it out. Your idea about hydrologist who were engineers and everything Kelly shall we planned well no I mean we do need a lot more public input on the. To as far as you're concerned there they're trying to push apart although I mean has been. The -- been kicked down the road for fifty years the problem is that doesn't look like they're kicking in the right direction. Well great to me it just seems as though -- always in this country that doesn't matter where it goes fiscal cliff whatever that means. We would quickly to the last second to doing that. And it would if not amusing anymore and never really looked amusing to me that yeah. Yeah the same people who get elected over and over and over and over. And come back again and again and again. And we will take care taker and nothing ever gets taken care I mean we heard dysfunctional -- are. -- -- functional nation because the people some of the people who actually. They get to pass their own loss about how they operate if you and I tried to do that we'd be in jail already. Well classic example came into the country last night when -- -- -- -- that who took an hour and a quick custom. Now let us senator Orrin the president or congressman they don't have to put up without -- mutiny if -- just. At a higher profiled a new law -- -- -- -- -- -- yet they should they should be subject everything you're more or maybe not the Resnick has its covenant on his own plane. You know another I mean the president the vice president you know open. I don't know why Janet Napolitano you know she should go through the TSA screening like not to. All pretty in the NC to pass these laws in this is what bothers me for everybody. And and you know we've got 5000 people in Washington DC. That rule 330 million. And back you for your previous caller I agree with -- he says as far as. You know financial -- all of those things what she -- about police -- flawlessly. But what you said about. You know people in public offer or bureaucrat I don't think victory O'Donnell -- but don't think they're smarter at all. While some people. In government who are very Smart and are very dedicated and they actually are. Serving the public. You know and the thing of it is sometimes they've been and there are so long that it just doesn't behoove them to leave because they won't be able to make money are they they're gonna sacrifice pensions are -- bunch of other. -- reasons but -- yeah there there are a lot of people unfortunately who. Their their primary. Their primary. Ability. Is the com a lot of people on the boat forms so. Well -- -- before it is that typical englishman or not people are gonna get out. Well unfortunately. That that's why I brought up the question then that this is not today shows just about what. Stacey had said they want a postponement have more public discussion. Manning is saying no we move it's been fifty years let's get let's get on the stick. A guy from Mississippi called amigos don't let him raise your rates because once they raised them they're never gonna go back down get a bond. And and do it that way but they bonded to the bridge and guess what though they paid off the bridge and a tolls are gonna stay because that's our -- vote. Well that's the thing I mean -- have you ever seen attacks rescinded -- It never happened and it you know all of the public he who have been built across the country throughout the nation all of those. We received from Denver Colorado we built the stadium for the Broncos that was supposed to go away the city Denver still collecting that. -- And it paid off and get it. And it's. What -- unbelievable I mean well on the senate a severe reduction in the tax so that you actually have money to maintain -- since they ought to but I mean. Why are they collecting the money to pay it off of it's paid off. Because they would collect the money to pay it off and maintain it now the pay off Wisconsin -- maintenance -- should be considerably less but they didn't drop at all. You know not at all the other thing I mean you're listening to all of this is going wrong with -- -- -- up these hospitals. Are you I mean it's just -- We we don't have enough transparency in government of Harlem before. And -- bill on the hospitals let me when they were making that big debate they were talking about a I think it's a place in Georgia and athletic Johns Hopkins to they have funded agreed -- expansion. Of their hospitals and guess what they haven't been able to fill all those build an argument against the mindless -- Anyway hey Jim I appreciate it thanks so much recall -- we say thank you Merry Christmas to -- there's a -- rose in our newsroom just. Just as anxious as she can be as has all cancers -- -- and and I am only home. -- -- -- -- -- Get the bicycles on that a call thought. Anyway -- who else going on general. I we're back.

For and the lighting is thought it would be a good if we keep and it doesn't like them lights on emirates that they're correct so. Well I -- thank -- pursuant to arrow mile away and -- I'd like to return the favor Obama. Witching. This he felt so after the sewerage and water board rate -- Because in those people deserve. The best storage and system -- that money can buy. Not all about what you can get a vote -- -- Of course I wouldn't have to -- it. -- -- I thank god to maintain it like it should be well. I -- ourselves now and I mean though you don't live in the city in Orleans it is the hub of the region and it is a driving force. And it is it is where the army look Super Bowls culminating in the penalty specimens coming here. And it is not the time for the targets to be back -- -- or not somebody to turn on the shower. And that brought -- around water. That's correct that patient at the great white it's irresponsible. And they need -- that it should come back -- -- -- race. Just like just like you guys that are open on that bridge because of the secret uptake essential that mean -- six weeks I'll be prepared for the next twenty years. Oh yeah and it's note there's nowhere. In that law that says the rate is gonna stay at a cross them and correct correct.

Which conference -- is doing his food to today's Tuesday as wind day. They brought some samples oh wait I can't do that -- got an inner -- go -- down a reverent to fix only seven against apple women we come back I'll read more -- text messages. It would take more of your phone calls and got more information I have to tell you about. Like for instance. Who detonation WWL -- and you to a saints game you just listen to win joined Garland and the think tank every Thursday. When you have the saints played a week. You just call 2609467. And Bada bing you're gonna get some tickets to go see the saints -- play Sunday eighty some sixteen. So that's this Thursday in the Garland Robinette show and the think tank Thursday afternoon at 1252 in the swing state. Our iTunes 670 back -- sports arrive at a mile away Ed you -- a lot of calls about people eleven Orleans parish here's somebody else to. Go to New York. Told -- eight bucks to pass get over it the problem is the bridges paid for. And they didn't do with the money what they said there were gonna do with the money that's the problem. It's not pain in the tolls frankly I think you juppe told across every bridge to maintain and because most of the bridges and a lot of highways in the state crack. You know their sub standard actually frankly that Guatemala -- that's the government's job infrastructure. Is one of the government's job they obviously spend the money there. But it -- if you get a paid across this bridge while Japan across the it across the new -- Pay off those bonds while Japan across the they help Boggs bridge over and able rolling -- -- across that bridge up there and Gramercy and and then the sunshine bring used to -- across intemperate. One of -- across the old highway 190 Edwards of north of -- rows that certainly could use a coat of paint. What about the bridge over the Shreveport the bridges and Alexander. While Japan across all those bridges they got a bridge open in a red river from losing and I'm going over to Texas -- bridges crap too. Pay for that bridge. That's the whole point. Anyway to six only 786 X eighty nine's early seventies but it's ridiculous my property taxes have gone through. The roof homeowner's insurance doubled -- now raise -- who who were aboard rates what's next well last like caller from Mississippi said don't let it raise the rates Sonia. -- bond issue. Bass with a bridge came -- -- made the bridge had a bond the Bondsman paid off but the tolls have still been renewed where's that money going to be. Where's that transparency. I don't think anybody would have a problem paying the tolls on corporate of them if there was transparent and that they spent the money where they said there were gonna. And -- one of the Brenda told me so be as high as it is it is now just the main coastal 'cause that's not gonna have a police department anymore. They don't need the rest of that stuff so you know maybe they should drop by drop at the fifty cents and 25 if you got a told that do -- Not only that not only are they not doing that the piece of legislation written does not limit. That bridge at a dollar. They can raise so you voted to keep it they can raise it is they can raise it to eight books. If they wanted to. If they pass piece of legislation to do so they account. -- -- only 7866889087. Ricky -- -- -- talk about the Susan wanna -- -- It's raining uptown and it's -- rain and we got to get a traffic report -- out you can get home safely. So we all stick around -- or your calls and comments right after this traffic report here in the big 87 NW Libya. Are rampant up this hour joining me as Stacy head column and out the balloon -- Stacy -- -- Doing great thank -- much you -- -- have a big hoot -- going on is kind of battling between you and sewage water board I know you've -- to be on tomorrow morning with Tommy and he's gonna give -- more time and I've got Brenda -- time to go beyond tomorrow. But a little erratic at bowl 0815 tomorrow Thompson folks in exhaustion and Marta Tommy Tucker show Aniston it's easier but all this is going to ball down. To it's it's just gonna come two blows or one between -- adorable. Actually I'll make sure that people are very clear. It's highly likely that a logical rate increased we'll be appropriate in appearing near future. The problem is being shelved. Into timeframe that is untenable. -- -- waterboarding and it executive branch have been pushing for a rate increase for a little every year and they put together these scary are quite thick report. And it changed multiple -- entity here. -- it was at 15% increase in it was a 13% increase and now most recently in mid September it -- a 10% increase. Every single year at the next eight years which results in doubling every once in which -- what they'll. -- my point is that. We are -- being on the council. We all we get the courtesy and giving the public more opportunity to a time or speak about an issue when we're talking about 583. Million dollars. We are certainly should delayed this for a week or two. Yet after fifty years to a couple of more weeks but we know we re out and that and that they get in people and yet you raise them but that -- out of pipes have been kicked them camper of tomorrow morning at 815 -- had. Talk to what Tommy Tucker she'll be able to give you a lot more information thanks Stacey. I'd appreciate the comment all right. Saint rose and there with a -- thank you mark an opera aboard -- -- -- AMOCO com.
