And again no matter what I'm talking about because I have a big old stack of stuff. A -- that interest me but whatever whatever's on your mind whatever you think is the most come. Telling thing that you can share -- this that's what we welcome folks so jump on board. Before we -- Move on I just want to remind you. That tomorrow is the 72. Anniversary. Of Pearl Harbor. So obviously we're here Monday through Friday 8 AM until -- did -- let that pass because. Boy every day. We just lose. More more of the of the folks who fought in World War II. It was December 7 1941. Of course. And I was reading. Bob Dole's. Great editorial in the times examiner. And I was struck by it because. You know Bob remembers it well. He writes I was nine years old it was Sunday I was sitting in my father's 1937. Ford did in front of my grandfather's house. Listening to the car radio. When the Pearl Harbor attack was announced. He says my grandfather. Who didn't own a radio or car he was a country preacher former. And -- -- The horse and buggy wagon or sled. Provided -- transportation at the time. He had eight dollars and five sons living. For the suns. Had served in the military the oldest Alonso. Served in France in World War I. -- served two tours in the navy Jim it's served in the army in the Pacific. In Poland joined the US Marines and served in Panama Nicaragua and Haiti Joseph the youngest. Was in his late teens and living at home. Bob says I ran in the house announced that the Japanese had attacked Pearl Harbor. The report said it was in the Hawaiian Islands immediately someone suggested. Going across the road in getting -- who had served most of his army to war. -- to Schofield barracks on the island of a walk through which is just tomorrow Pearl Harbor. Jim would be able we thought to answer questions the next day Roosevelt made his famous speech about the day that would live in infamy. And the congress declared war life would never be the same in the dark corner of Greenville county or elsewhere. Following week uncle Joseph borrowed my father's car to go to -- of allegedly to buy a pair of shoes. He was allowed to borrow the car only if I want a long to ensure that it didn't abuse the privilege. He was not pleased that I -- long we -- to -- in silencing park -- theater showing John Wayne in the flying tigers. We went in the movie suddenly left saying he was going to look for a pair of shoes he returned to pick me up couple of hours later. Without issues. We drove home again mostly in silence within a few days the word was out. JoAnne announced to his parents. Then he had joined the army while we were in Greenville. Bob writes I had unknowingly been a party to a deception. Target about his brother Joseph deal was serves on county council via the team. Had decided he was going to war I would never know whether he joined at a patriotism or just to get away from home. Where the rules were quite strict in grandpa knew how to use his razor strap for disciplinary purposes. Two cousins who live with -- us while attending high school joined the military all my uncles except show we're too old for the draft. And cousins except Adrian and WS Flynn that Brockman moon and twins Georgia bill -- we're too young. All right so six my relatives returned after the war George morrow. Was severely wounded during the invasion of Europe and eventually lost a leg. Uncle Joseph was peppered with shrapnel. That contributed to health problems later in life. Could this country to country mobilized and was the major force in defeating the Germans and Japanese in just four years never again. Would we be so unprepared. As to invite a sneak attack we were promised however. In 1950 was found ourselves. Throwing untrained in ill equipped troops into battle again it happened -- in Vietnam. With a government that entered the war didn't have the courage to win and after more than a decade. Betrayed the troops and abandon the people we had promised to defend. He concludes since that time we have engaged in half a dozen. Undeclared wars with no clear mission. The current administration appears to have decided that the way to end the war is to destroy our military and their will to fight. The Obama administration and the Democrat party along with part of the Republican Party. In many Americans have apparently forgotten. The lesson of Pearl Harbor. And he writes unless there's change in policy soon. A lot of American blood won't be needlessly shed sadly for the first time since 1876. Some of the shed blood will be that of civilians on American soil. Surely we are not dumb enough to allow that to happen. If we are allowed to have honest elections -- 4014. We have a chance to replace some enemies of the constitution at the polls. All depends on how many voters are swayed by lies and deception again. The current White House is determined to bring the US military to which studies. And render it the weakest it has been since World War II. When soldiers were training with wooden rifles. We must not allow that to happen remember. Pearl Harbor. 72 anniversary tomorrow. Of December 7 1941. The day. That will live in infamy the reason I sure of that which you folks. Is that we need to hear the story. We need to hear those stories of people who remember. What happened. Who have. Knowledge. So what was going on in the country. And also what was going on right here is Bob shares. So. Just something for you to think about as we have through this Friday and into the weekend. Never forget. What December 7. Represents. All right. Some other things from this Friday obviously we've got the passing of Nelson Mandela. We talked about the entire that the entire first hour as the world reacts to this. You're welcome to -- thought for to a net. Also this morning. There's a new study out. That says south Carolinians. Are among the most courteous people in the country. You think that's true. Not so sure. But during my life it. Maybe it's because I've never really lived and other parts of the country the same survey says. That Ohio. Is just the most impolite to state. In the -- I'm sure we have some folks listening tour from Ohio do you agree or disagree with that. The study did not check. According to this article in the state newspaper. Via the Hilton Head Island packet. Which is a local newspaper down there the study did not check to see if the phrase bless your heart. Understood in its true meaning when used by South Carolina residents. Might negate the palmetto state track. -- some folks might be confused by that that the it. In South Carolina. The rule pretty much has been for a long time that you can say anything you wanna say about anybody as long as. You ended with bless their heart. Somehow that. Just makes this sound like you really weren't being mean to them. So if if you ever out and somebody says them something to you and then at the or their target about something that happened and they they ended with bless bless their heart. Off it's it may not mean what you think it makes. Marchex -- Put this out. During national etiquette week but the study began attracting notice this week it was out -- -- Marchex specializes in mobile -- technology conducted the study by examining. Get this 600000. Phone calls made to businesses. And recorded -- a year. What they were looking forward -- works. And then polite phrases like please and thank you. The results were broken into two categories most to least polite and then most to least propane. So a year ago State's most likely to use polite words South Carolina. North Carolina. Maryland. Louisiana and Georgia. Really George. Callers are more likely to leave out polite terms. Came from Wisconsin Massachusetts Indiana Tennessee. And claiming the dubious distinction. Of having both rude and propane callers. Ohio. Now when it comes to profanity. Washington State residents. Actually cost the least. Only a once in about every 300 conversations according to Marchex. And briefly broke -- so in Washington State they cus released. -- ones. First twice as much. Other pro frame states Massachusetts. Parenthetically they won't say thank you but they won't Wear -- -- either. Arizona. Texas and Virginia. So apparently. They don't they don't cost much. Following Ohio as -- -- states Maryland. New Jersey. Louisiana says here their propane but polite about it and of course Illinois. Source I I thought Illinois. Would have -- -- Ohio would you. If you think about this for a second also from the study. Many curse more than women 66%. Of curses come from men. Longer at the longer the call the more cussing you were gonna get. And colds in the morning. Produced more curses than those in the afternoon or the evening it's it's because you've been thinking about a ball might right. You've you've been Stewart on it and then you make that first but back to the original assertion. Because real people moving here all the time and many times they'll call you know shows like this one. And I've had this comment over and over for a long time just nice to be in a place for people are so nice. So but the reason I'm a little doubtful I may be is just because I've lived here. I think it one time. We we were pretty darn polite to people -- -- over what. I mean you just wouldn't find a place like South Carolina. -- people actually say hello to you. I've done it all my life you know I don't care war and it if somebody stranger not a stranger I don't I don't might just go up and start talking to people. It's just not that way in other parts of the country where I've traveled. But I party. I think south -- change. Maybe it's because we do we have so many people but we hear from other parts of the country but I I think South Carolina. May be isn't. The most polite place in the country the way that it was -- don't pick a number. I think like twenty years ago. But I think in the last couple of decades I I think there's been a remarkable change. And I think there's a lot of factors board that I think it's. I think people -- more stressed out here than they were when -- that we aren't we are nearly as stressed out as we are now. More trash I think we've got more financial concerns. I mean you know people. It's just something different now. Which I think leads people to not. Be as polite as they once -- welcome your thoughts. I mean if we are indeed. Still. The most polite state in the union. I don't get me wrong I think that's a great thing. But is it accurate. Is it is it really true this survey says it is I'm just not quite so sure. I think I've been to Ohio. Three times in my life that I can remember. I don't remember Ohio being particularly root. For some reason. So what is the -- this place I've ever been hands down New York. I mean is not even close. They're just. And I didn't I think it's -- those folks up there are so stressed out. Also in the news this morning this is just a fun thing for Friday. So big foot is in -- -- count. Our Chris I'm putting out a coal here for anybody. And not just this morning any time to choose think you've seen big foot. Locally please call us right away. Because as I've said a thousand times you are our eyes and ears you are being decimated right now an official. -- -- -- -- -- This is -- a Seneca. They legendary -- squads may be living in south Carolina at least that's what a group of paranormal investigators in the up Stater trying to prove. They're called the Carolina society for paranormal research and investigation. They are looking for bigfoot in the woods bubble -- count. Nobody asks that fox Carolina our news for a partner not disclose the exact location. Of their search. There's you know what whatever everybody jump in their truck -- there with a shotgun and try to find us anyway bottom. Quote we wanna see if we wanna shake hands when that we wanna talk to -- had branded news. Thank you Ed you always think you wanna shake hands would bigfoot. -- just. You know speaks English well exactly right. Quote there have been sightings and this area dating back to the seventies. We've found footprints would structures just different out of the ordinary movement of limbs and branches and trees. Broken trees from the base of the tree where it has been physically removed. And the growth -- they they have cast stub of alleged foot prints belonging to bid for. Quote the print is about eighteen inches in length -- -- to nine inches in width you can see a little bit of the toes here and a good he'll imprint. Dennis Carroll the head of the investigation said. They investigate all this is good they also say they've found various bigfoot nests. What are some big foot -- looked like. So what he showed me a picture. They say that could not have been created simply by whether or wind movement to. Quote we're not gonna say that bigfoot is out here but something's out here in the woods and that's why we're here. And that's what investigations. Are for so mister Carroll. By the way. To avoid dominant judges there will be a bigger bigfoot -- Saturday December 14. If you're a member. Of the Carol out of society for paranormal research and investigation. If it is if you would like you know to join them.

Well I haven't talked to him in quite a while yeah yeah they're. Let's don't. And iron out I have never seen bigfoot. Rhetoric now in college there was some times course I was under the influence that I thought I saw bigfoot. Hope comes out I'll be honest we can rest I was -- we don't they have little street but I was -- -- Austria.

Ade Jimoh thank you so much journalist doctor Roland in greens -- -- -- There -- Aren't in your bed. Friendly and it was. -- -- latest state in the union. Well you know I don't hear late seventies early eighties and first publishers -- chance encounter two people from. Blue state. Impact on me. No one will be a quite prominent member of the Lake County school board and that person who was the most callous most cold hearted person I've ever met in my life. Yeah. The second person. Because of the eighties you know early age daughter are defined and I ended up working -- stock -- -- Carolina baby. Oh yeah yeah what you were. Yeah. And one night is -- and took bronze and a man walked up to me and start talking to me. About it movie does seem to believe as we need to. And it was so excited and so warm I'm really treated me like as best friend in life. And that's the reason why I listen to -- -- to this -- It was me. I was gonna say hey Carolina baby I remember I probably was fair because we used to do commercials forum. And the other thing is. What our first dollar was on the way that's where we -- we -- -- -- mas classes. I remember you coming up too many and you talk to me for about five minutes. Like I was her best friend. Well I just it now the my kids get after me all the time you know they they say dad used can't do that anymore but -- just the way I am. And that's always South Carolina used to be I'm just not quite so sure that we're that way and able. Well I still think we are because like I said there's two different types of people everywhere now is pretty much -- and they're really cold callous person and you know our member hurt that person distinct -- and then there's a warm. Southern hospitality which you exhibit back. What you're very kind gem -- Roland thank you thank you for the memories I appreciate that I can't believe people remember stuff like this all right 926.

I use it as a blessing to people I wish I had about a future. That's. Fine but again it's -- -- this one is I've lived here which is all my life. You pretty much can say anything you want about anybody. As long as you in this ends with saying. We'll just lesser -- -- in Colorado and California people are not polite or use curse words because 80% are high on marijuana. So they don't really say anything biggest moan and groan. -- New Yorkers are obnoxious because they know the other guy is unarmed and that brave. -- I know we have the lizard man but I don't know whether or not bigfoot is in a coney Cali. -- I moved to North Carolina from Maryland the area I was raised and was rural. It was very polite however. Go to where the majority of people live in Maryland and they are extremely rude only concerned about themselves. So happy to have moved to the -- PS Ohio is. Awful. Ross the show you're talking about a cables called finding bigfoot. That guy says he's been looking for bigfoot for 45 years it was fully as he says he's never seen -- one.

Not only add these on -- goodwill toward man yes that thought that two this is not. What I would expect from southern hospitality. See -- rim and -- remember my original assertion was I think at one time we might have been the most polite state in the U. Growing up I mean we've we've known and people southern hospitality the whole thing but I think the exit changed. I I think it's a lot of factors into that I think people were stressful I think we got more folks moving here from other parts of the country. That. I can't believe what has happened here in the last five minutes Ross some of us just -- spelled that the powder -- A -- Carlin Woodruff. Oh Phil is gonna explain to me what I hit -- -- engineers I think I had one of those in my. The second car I ever had. I think I -- I hit or miss engine.

Ice I think my original assertion is coming true here South Carolina may not be the most polite. State in the union. Just a reaction to one call that the guys identify himself as Yankee. From Ohio a -- Ohio guy was more sensitive -- my brother and he's gay. Harsh -- harsh. Then with the chamber of commerce their panic and right okay now I'm 53. Oh my goodness.
