This is the rust Cassel showed Broward and charge my batteries specialists and all right let's go. -- what is today. For the next four hours let's let's have a little conversation what do you say welcome into the -- -- show live -- -- -- A privilege honor and pleasure to be with you on this. Thanksgiving. Eve. Our what were they say grist for the first time ever this is Thanksgiving got. I believe that -- Thanksgiving and Honecker starting on the same day it's another sign you know. Anyway that Ingles advantage -- lines or for us to get together on the air. I agree -- 2329673. Spartanburg 574. 9673. And of course the WORD. Tags like number. Which is already Holland and I'm actually encouraged to -- this. That number is 71307. Serb big spur -- fear the fall -- Fear that's on the right. Wants those back is covered prepare for a very orange beat down again go carts okay fine. Let's put this into perspective folks I mean first of all. This is beyond a sports story before youth sports -- structure criticism this is this is history. In the status -- a lot of this has never happened before. In our little bitty state. It's never happened before. The two major schools in this state. Both ranked in the top ten. Clemson Tigers at number six South Carolina Gamecocks at number ten. And I just I think this year. Just my observation. Is pretty much unlike any year to year I've ever seen. It's like both sides are just scared to death. Yeah you have a few -- draws like our textures and of course me and he could have or -- predicted tigers -- 3021 tomorrow night. But that bit again put it in perspective. Look at these two great quarterbacks. Connor Shaw. Never lost at home. Taj -- breaking all kinds of records. I mean. Gonna go down as one of the greatest quarterbacks. Perhaps the greatest quarterback in the history Clemson football Connor -- doesn't get -- national attention that he deserves. I mean you look at all of that you look at all these seniors who have accomplished so much. I mean this is this just phenomenal and I just sense a lack. Of up I don't wanna say interest I mean there's always great interest in this state always has been but it just I don't know people are just afraid. You know they've they they're just not quite sure I think a lot of Clemson fans are just afraid I I think they don't -- face they have the you know. The foam at F five years and a rogue thought. This is nuts I think it's going to be a great game and I I -- got to tell you the other great games Alabama Auburn. There's all kinds of national implications so anyway about what are you wanna talk about his fine. Just jump on board in will have added we have a lot of big news out there this morning. There were gonna get to both locally and nationally. But keep in mind what -- you think's important you're welcome to bring it up. Let's get alive a local big time 809 married let me ask you something folks -- Doris Thanksgiving and of course four foremost I think it's a time. To be with family if you can end. And it would just ask yourself. And Thanksgiving. Does your family ever get -- a conversation about politics or about the issues that we talk about here every day has there ever been in your family. A huge disagreement. Just I just on FOX & Friends here on the monitor they have that. That's a Psycho doctor -- psychiatrist I'm sorry Freudian slip key tableau. Eddie does that I think are you normal ordinance and and the first question was. Dear doctor -- of my family and I we we get into discussions. About political issues and last year. My momma and my sister got under such a fight that momma dropped the Turkey. Are we normal or does I'm I'm I'm just curious now the Obama folks. Are encouraging you may have heard about this. For everybody tomorrow for Thanksgiving around the table to have the talk. To have the talk about obamacare. Like I'm new big what would happen if that were to happen in my family. -- will be pretty one sided I think. You never can tip. But it. Just in case somebody brings it up. Here's what should I think you need to -- -- Anybody who you know is in favor. Of you know getting Obama care signing a kid up for obamacare. -- you just tell him the truth. Yeah it -- tellem okay. Do you want the government pretty much in control of your life. Ask ask -- 45 year old kid that do you want the government in control your life. I mean think about that this is about control it's not about insurance. Ask ask your kid. If this comes up what are you gonna do if you have a medical bill and you've got to let's say I don't know the bronze plan. -- How are you gonna pay the rest of what -- oh and then when they give me that look what you mean. You know I voted for Obama and and he promised that he is gonna take care of this -- no no no no no no I don't know explain to your kids. That if you have 60% coverage. Then that means somebody has got to pay the other 40% just tell them the truth. Now I don't know how many people. Actually have this the sort of discussion. Around a Thanksgiving table but I'm curious. Let let's don't even limit this to obamacare. Tell me about your family if your family even discusses these sorts of things and and how how did that go. -- does that go for. I did. I I would think in our family I think he even with what I do for a living. Here on the radio it is good to be honest when you when I get to the holidays. Even when I get off work every day even family members when the incumbent and start asking me stuff I don't wanna talk about. I talk about it for four -- here on the radio I don't want my wife will say so what are you talk about they are -- I'd gotten that well I'd I'd set everything I need to say. I don't I don't wanna talk about stuff like that I mean if you're -- like I do. That's the last thing in the world. Then I wanna talk about. Especially around Thanksgiving. You do have to take a break away from the stump but yet yeah you got those relatives. Maybe got those relatives that are coming in from out of town. Why do you think about there's obamacare a dip -- with -- have you signed up. At a here leave me alone. It would look like argue too until Beijing blocked accused of that yes. The media really great. Well I I. I don't know why I haven't had Thanksgiving dinner with and you got FF. I know I mean I have and the members who they know how you feel about something and so villas and it's -- you'd just a debate argument because that's the another hobby and then have a family members that just go all -- don't bring that up around -- -- go off you know -- you don't wanna do good so. I'm just curious. So far no calls so maybe maybe this is just the wrong. I have to go down but. It is out there -- Fox News has this story worried about those awkward friendly moments around the Thanksgiving table. Why not break the ice with a conversation. About obamacare. That's the advice. This season from the folks -- president Obama's campaign arm. Which is actually circulating a script of sorts for people to use in order to advanced the cause. Of these disaster of the train wreck known as the Affordable Care Act. Organizing for action. As I told you about earlier this week is launched a web site. It's called health care for the holidays urging obamacare supporters to quote have the talks with their family about signing up. For health insurance. Because this whole thing is -- disaster there not been on meet the deadline which is coming up this weekend and you know we will documented this. But I I I -- Just opened. People fully appropriate -- to have that kind of -- at the dinner table anyway well really I mean would you dare bring it up -- what if somebody else brings enough. I'm just saying. Tell the truth. Tell them what this thing really is all about. They put together by the way is if you see any of these commercials. That they put together I've seen some of the print and let me set this -- -- -- This is a young mom and dad when does a son and the sun looks like cat he could be 25 to six. And so the Obama folks put together -- these things have cost a lot of money. They put together these commercials. Just sort of set the stage for this to have the talk. Thanksgiving here's the audio from that listen listen carefully here it's about a -- fifty. Young kids get a model -- Eat yellow here. And a few good because we have something really important to talk to about. That's weird and hence why don't worry about it drive safely I. Fact that they want to talk to me about. The so what's so important that -- And yeah -- he's. So what's so important. We joined the call and you're cold it's cultivation. You know what you did in Vegas we. Know what she did it Marty -- we know which sometimes. Your mother and nine and joining the surface then okay and then got us. We're Daft Punk I'm always I'm just a mogul husband and I am the one who knocks her. We got -- chances. It couldn't be that there are any of those things like my dad really wanna talk about what do you wanna talk to me about. We know you don't have health insurance we love you no matter what but it's time to get covered. That's that health insurance it's important that I know and I'll do it I just. Thought. Never mind yeah. So happened that talks make sure you talk to your loved ones about getting covered. -- -- -- Right okay. Tom thank you and in typical Obama.

During Thanksgiving. -- your loved ones about signing up for obamacare. No just prompted -- thought in my head so what what what do you talk about it would obamacare even come up and what would you say. Also this prompted -- thought of my head. What what news. What what constitutes family. Now. You know Census Bureau this week. Released a report that shows just how much families. Have changed. They compared friendlies. Between 1970. And today. There are fewer family. Councils. Now a fairly household and those -- were more people living in the same home who are related by blood marriage or adoption. In for a thirteen. 66%. Of American households fit that definition. He was 81%. In 1970. More people living alone now. Today 27% of households. Or one person. Households. That is up from 17%. In 1970 more people living alone. About the nuclear family in 197040%. Of households. Were married couples with children. Today. 19%. From 40% to 19%. We have smaller France. Every number of people and household dropped. It was three point one in 1970 -- 2.5. Fewer children. Average number of children per family declined. One point three in 1970. Less than one in 2013. Children living it was only a mother. 48%. Adam -- I had a mother who had never been married. This year. That's up from 7%. It it was 7%. In 1970 days 48%. How much has the fair wage what constitutes -- More children's parent most children's parents are married. When you look at parents who live with children under age 1876%. Are married. 16%. Have no partner 8% lived with them on married partner. Children in single parent families. Most likely live in poverty. Nearly half of children living with a single mother 45%. Live below the poverty line 21% of children. Who lived with just their father lives in poverty. 13% of children living with both parents. Live in poverty. Single parent households are more common for blacks and Hispanics. 55% of black children 31%. Of Hispanic children live in a one parent household. Compare with 20% of white children only 13%. Of Asian children and one parent families. Are more common in the south. About 41%. Of this country's one parent unmarried friendly groups with children. Are in the south the northeast. Had the smallest percentage. Of such families and finally. Thought this was interest in single moms more likely to raise children on their own two thirds of mothers. Living with their children. I have a spouse present compared with 86%. For father's. 25% of boaters were children under the age of eighteen have no partner president in the household. In contrast to just 6%. Of fathers what are what are your friend. There's something to think about here. On Thanksgiving -- local update time is 839. 145 on the -- castle show happy Thanksgiving to you and yours okay got a text. Snow showers and travelers rest here's another when sleeping in Duncan flown about Maria in the area we now refer to as. What we thought. Like Iraq's attempts -- Iraq syndrome. We used to call it -- -- yes. I don't know I didn't just go to Maria where we find Todd I -- Yes they liberated so if patent well it's a bit yeah I guess we're exactly here. It may find it. You know it's -- time you get that. If I had questioned by US very popular that the weather sure the other day we always we missed a couple of inches of accumulation. Run and this thing you know all that -- -- -- However as I hit it -- don't want this forty degrees outside and get my outside Columbus -- 42 great right I was I was hitting the Bryant. Because the doctor Joseph Sobel explain this to me see if I remember at all at all has to do with the upper air temperature. If it's if it's cold. Because it was because of moisture falls to different layers. Of the of the -- bulbous and you'll have a warm area you'll have a cold area. And depending on how that's lined up you'll either have. -- rain that falls in freezes when it hits the ground because the temperature at the ground is near freezing. Or you'll have to sleep which means it's colder aloft and of falls down and somehow survives -- -- all meld. And the conditions have to be just right but those upper air temperatures. As to whether or not we get -- -- leave or combination of the two. So it really is all about what the temperature is up there vs what the temperature is down here. I think since there's little question yeah I'm. -- -- a couple of years ago he was talking about the AL RB AK what did you do it. And they are fifteen top quite -- dip -- you have been element bushmaster. Right thank you it's Michael's -- -- I'm Michael. I'm final -- happy Thanksgiving. -- to vote. How about this Obama here. They don't speak aren't -- -- you can. Model I went to my work insurance so today and -- are. Rick it's cheaper insurance but just get a specific nature and talent that the burnout but it only went up 21% the book this year. The only if I want it yet. And did you get the same cover jurors are reduced benefit. I bite me ever buying your standards by not by some that the cuts will Mario fluctuate -- -- please go up. Adjourn no later tonight and it -- Outside science so persona kind of I'm not that -- a -- that well orchestrated at 241 who scored 21% quarterly don't -- But it -- -- are you gonna get a 21% raised a government. -- or -- -- -- think people come first of the year and we had this big news out yesterday from fox. -- -- They're just blew everybody away now it's it's eighty million. It's eighty million people the latest estimates are gonna have even people not just in the individual market even people. Who are in but a plan that did they get through work a lot of those people are gonna lose their coverage. And why don't. Well or so ago and obamacare but it just because you go and stop it doesn't mean you don't getting you that is correct. They empowerment certainly ordered that well they get aren't aren't. But yesterday a lot of young people are going to be shocked because -- -- early on where they live and it really does matter what part of the country they live them. There and they don't qualify for a subsidy even if they don't make it out of money so it. Did that the shock of this just continues and of course this weekend was supposed to be the deadline. And quietly came out yesterday the Obama folks said Bob we're not gonna meet that deadline they keep shifting the goal post. But -- coming up later on this morning there is -- what is being described as Obama cares looming land of mine and it makes a lot of sense to me. The real danger and the reality. Of what they -- net result of obamacare is going to be so stay tuned if you can Michael. Thank you so much all of a sudden all of a sudden. Jim Ross snowing in burrito -- snowing in greater -- and Williams to sleeping in prayer. That's had a color have to drive to Kansas and then I just tried to Asheville today.

I don't drink cow's milk that much anymore I did I got and it would be a big fan of Allman milk. And coconut milk is just I like it better and it's better for you. And and I got to -- with a low carb thing I I don't eat that many I don't need that much bread and able. It's set up a little -- out tomorrow on cornbread dressing I've been very they've got I'm considered at this stuffing. Old stuff like what is stuff but we got this yesterday stuff straightened that's what you put inside of a stuffed animal. The my grandmother my granddaughter loves me the best use it Build-A-Bear at the mall -- I was already they. Apart right now at the -- they're ordered to pick it -- -- -- look -- -- -- making -- hungry. -- I have a say legitimized it and Carol YouTube on YouTube. Stuff what is it that's become.

I'm studying this -- you all this is the food -- you say you -- what do you say dressing and I think of salad dressing. No it's now you young people are so confused to address that. And have you ever had cornbread dressing I have you know if it's delicious. I do notre dog -- your own thing matters it's this is overblown about Turkey. Think it matters on Thanksgiving is addressed -- well the -- just there to justify the dress -- Ers starting and I here's Colin here's the eternal question. But cranberry sauce yay nay canned. Or homemade homemade all the way. I don't know that I've never been a big fan. -- cranberry. You know no cranberry sauce thing I I don't know why just don't like it but there's something about when you open McCain and and you stirred trying to dump it out if and that sound that can. -- that make you know -- I -- it's just says it's just in mind I guess. This a psychological thing would be I just wonder what is that really. Right what I mean he can shoot can jury used that stuff for like blue.

I guess it's real -- It's cranberry I should -- just three mile under my mother makes a cranberry relish that is out of -- -- yet I homemade homemade. But I know people even in my own family man that's what they look forward to the most is the cranberries so I'm just not a big fan. Of the cranberry sauce.
