Omitting that'd -- -- fact that as we see from -- carries both the old course TV deal. And Obama's adjacent -- deal with Tony Rezko politicians not only mostly live on the public dole without the expenses but the rest of us occur. But also have a miraculous way of avoiding the sort of taxes they rang others about. During the 2008 financial meltdown. Goldman Sachs was the recipient of federal cash bail outs.

For the cronies of the the the -- thought Percy. That they are equipped autocracy issue it's the rules the country Jeff you're next with how we cargo ahead Jeff. -- -- -- -- -- -- or aren't a little irritated with you the past few times I called and actually irritated with the situation in the country my question do you bit. Who is it that letting liberals saw the clock and it said rhetorical question it's the American public that is we -- -- -- -- -- you talk about it like it's some. Foreign entity -- some. Foreign planet it's letting it happen when you are in the real question is how -- -- stopped. I guess we just have to educate our neighbors jump -- much sure how to do that -- I mean you know -- you know when you when you walk down the street -- use org to see you see you sit.
