But I did want to mention a couple of bank show John Boehner and the Pope have a lot really incompetent. Here there Europe and their age and in so doing what they've endured for so long they really again. Article about doing what it's supposed to be don't think about this. If they're Kirk at the Pope is gonna come to the US and lecturer on giving money distributed to well. Why don't you go to these countries that are producing. Oil like Jerry. Nigeria produces a lot of oil and yet there are people live in poverty. You go to community she is saying thank you out to people in Asia the if you really going to do something okay. Then he's really got to get in there and see what's going on but I just cannot miss about the against all. This is just the fact that he lit so much in his cloistered area that he doesn't really go outside to see really what's going law. It's it's back to John Boehner he's been doing contributed by the end he's big he's doing a good shot when he opened up so thank. Leo I gotta tell you look I won tax stirred and it's a brilliant texas' 631. Know Jeff the Pope performed an exorcism. And paying guys for for this opportunist and fraud. For that house conservatives to finally beat him back. It's it's a semi miracle I mean it really it's. The ruling class is starting to crumble. Idiots. And there is out the party is being taken over by conservatives bit by bit. And he's now one of the casualties but getting back to the Pope we know look at your 100% right. He's not lecturing his low lecturing the Chinese. The big polluters in the world are not free market societies. Canada the United States Switzerland Germany Eckerd rundown bowl is Australia New Zealand we have the cleanest environments in the world. If you're actually pro environment you're pro capitalism. Because capitalism creates the wealth to be able to fight air pollution or dirty water or whatever it is. It is Communist countries. Cuba is an incredible polluter. China is an incredible polluter. Never mind my mother Russia is a huge polluter China is a huge polluters notice he never lectures them. He never lectures the African countries he never election you want like about a polluter he never lecture is a main call. What you lectures us. And here Kim needs the biggest hypocrisy of animal. He stands there at the United Nations today and especially yesterday in congress. Telling us we have to take him all of these refugees. Many of them predominantly Muslim refugees. Where we know ice is an al-Qaeda has infiltrated our ranks we know it. Never mind all the other illegals pouring across our southern border. Many of them murderers. Rapists. Criminals gang bangers. But here's the question I have for you. And I asked that the my wife last night grace and she didn't know the answer and I asked that the people in the Booth and they didn't know the answer. So let me ask all of you this honestly don't Google it just answered this question in your mind during your car or in your house. Which state in the world. How is the strictest. Most stringent immigration laws. Which state. In the world. How is the strictest strangest laws on immigration. And secures its border like nobody else. China Japan. North Korea. Had. My car are shy man. Jaffray. Switzerland Jeff. I swear to you as god is my witness. The Vatican. And not only does the Vatican and I don't blame them. Have the most stringent immigration laws do you know which state has the highest walls protecting it's borders. You guessed it the Vatican. I'm not talking eight feet tall ten feet tall even fifteen feet tall. I'm talking I'm scalable. Forty feet high Waltz. You got to see the pictures of the walls around the Vatican with the Swiss guard on pop album. Why. Because if the Vatican is overrun by saved by Muslim refugees. It's no longer Catholic. It's no longer Christian it's no longer the Vatican it becomes the Mecca of Europe. So my question to the Pope is this with all due respect holy father. How come you can secure your borders. And defend your sovereignty. And build a mother walls and we can't. The golden rule father. Holy father. Do want to others as you have do unto yourself. You have a wall we wanna wall. 6172666868. More with your calls that's. 126 year on the break WRKO. 815 Jeff boy where you write about Scott Brown. He was on Fox Business today outraged. That conservatives are getting rid of John Boehner. Apparently the model was very upset about getting rid of the bone had. We are supposed to just sit down and shut up while you see that's why they fear us. Because we don't sit down and shut up. And I said this before and I'll say it again. Scott Brown is a rhino home. Jeanne I'm Jeanne Shaheen. Cleaned his clock because he was a rhino. Kelly Ayotte is a rhino Charlie Baker is a rhino. It's kind they say no to the Ryan else. And that's why they're all crying today thing Boehner crying they're crying because the chief rhino is now gone. Russ Europe next go ahead Russ. Jeff Jardine banner should take it is on as a way to much and home he should take Johnny McCain with a as far as I'm concerned. You know the other big old in the dip I heard John Dana that they say clean ex commandos let's not forget about. Oh I don't think about the tanning salons Bieber you're right. The Kleenex vendors all the good news is well out of business now Russ rolling ought to drop for this guy right now. I want your opinion. A as a practicing Roman conflict that tries to live by the tenth commandment. Now this morning on CNN they interviewed Governor Cuomo well Matt what the poll. He said the Pope exceeded expectations. The Pope blessed as a long time girlfriend. Was a cancer survivor and now. Interpret I don't know much about the governor. Now its he's hit longtime girlfriend. And they sleep together and then not married. I mean that is somewhat of a problem which is seen in our society today where any day votes. Although this is acceptable and even though that's what the Pope city residents and that's okay. Well I mean I think the poll probably getting get into their personal lives and how much trying to offend the Pope Russ I'm just. Lucky swamped with people and you know can you give her a blessing but. Look I mean I don't wanna sound like father corner here but you know the last and I'm gonna answer. If you're living with your girlfriend you're not married according to the Catholic Church are living in San. And you know it would have been nice had he said something like hey you two married. Maybe you should get married families beautiful marriage is beautiful sheet that's something that a Benedict would say Horry GP two which say. That this poll just doesn't say. Because he's battling moral equivalents. And we don't need moral equivalence. Which we need is moral clarity. Call me crazy 6172666868. Is the number. John Boehner is gone the Pope now addresses the United Nations. Your reaction from your calls 6172666868. Doctor grace is in the bullpen getting ready.
