A Third World country. That's works changing. The letter saying -- -- were were out of money for your Social Security payment all want the illegal aliens you you'll understand of course. Just because you've been working. For you know paying into the system cents. But Lyndon Johnson of the Richard Nixon administration. Now these people just came over two months ago that they abused appalled when you want stadium right. It's it's it's compassion. And compare that to the same for awhile maybe they wouldn't but it doesn't matter whether that do the same -- Bill your next with how we cargo ahead bill. -- I don't. Look that it is gonna -- on what Barbara said. What when he was inaugurated I didn't cry I swore. I -- that this guy it was a piece that debacle for the it would get him but what horrifies me is. Did you agree with -- attacks of this says we would have been better off we'll probably know we what she has this little guy is the issue didn't think it's on Wednesday. She is as big old leftist. And a nanny Stater. And and and the founder and. So here's the difference I don't think she hates the United States of America. Actually dug out with a legal -- -- -- think you know when you talk about that the Clinton downside commit some home. You'll get on to work which -- -- up our apple and they are quite as the UN world swap. She didn't let yet these people don't want -- not because we don't need anymore apps we got to. I I had three. He played a bully me I'm not voting for Hillary Clinton I'm just saying that the I just think in retrospect -- you know. And. No it would be just babble or as we should -- different computers. If what would you -- would what would you rather have bill that whole Maine poisoning and told Maine poisoning or cyanide poisoning. I don't concern you could survive totally poisoning. You know you can't survive cyanide. Where they get adults cyanide right now. I mean right now I'd -- If you can dive from all they until it don't -- it's just a question try to Hillary care what she -- got a. I know. I know I always right she's she's terrible she's parable and you know what I believe that -- when he says you know I've read -- another camp like Clinton -- But she that she is actually. She's actually the the -- the better of the two of them but she's the -- she's less of a of -- horrible person that he is I believe that to bill but you'd be pleased I mean that you can't say that Hillary would have been worse than this guy nah nah I don't think anybody could have been worse than this guy. I'm sure somebody -- -- but. Just gonna discuss Dennis the next -- but I think Dennis Kucinich. Dennis Kucinich could have been worse than this. Then ask your next with how we cargo ahead Dennis Dodd Dennis Kucinich Sharia. Law a pleasure not Dennis Kucinich I'm doing okay. Not have gotten it remains yeah I got I got a son in college here at the University of Maine system. That. And it got. So -- in the -- the other day. And it said that he had you are respond to study there was true of health care. And they were going to bill actually regard themselves like 960 box Somalia. So. And so it's either our respondents. Would grow so insurance or are you gonna judge you. And it was on a timely -- -- -- check you sent our annual. So I called university and I talked to Italy. And I've said that I stand up. In what what university. Benefiting from at least people you know prove -- sharks although I'm not and actually she said it's the affordable care. -- actually I didn't realize. That. Required students to have insurance. Well you could read it it is not being -- net somewhere so. Are you -- Well and I can't dissect what went after the upset that I I'm on the -- or does it send up. What would happen -- -- -- stores decided that we weren't going to sell real trees than anybody I must -- as proof of insurance. As such in Europe there is right here actually served unpaid for the most crucial group of insurance. Etc. what do what do C central Maine power company decided. And they weren't gonna provide. How much anybody. What do or hey I got another what -- what do you organize it or baker you were gonna sell wedding cake to somebody -- you know like he gets you can't not -- gays -- and up sell to anybody else right. Yeah exactly right so organized you're blaming it on the -- care act. So I'd like to see you know somebody who are represented something look at that to see if side that is actually -- -- -- or is yes. I'm wondering is that they if the if you're an illegal alien do you have -- I'm gonna guest Dennis the answer is no you don't have to happen thanks for the call I'm Howard -- Catherine your next -- how we -- ahead Katherine. I how he -- may just like yeah. I'm calling from Portland me yes and I didn't listen to you quite often and I certainly agree with everything you say that I have to tell.
