Pitcher Bob appreciate your limit yes there are I don't -- let the other day there are lots of talk -- -- -- perspectives. But it stepped Osama psyched about. Some -- that was 300 -- so let's step our. -- what will live forever. -- course prior to Gettysburg address. You know the declaration of independence so that that. That you have a constitution as a portrait work but it has. Less than a thousand words and an -- perspective on Tibetan. Government which is. Just totally out saying. Well -- outlook so what the founders intended. The regulation concerning the site of cabbage. That regulation is to look -- some thousand or 1008. Regulation and -- as it relates to the sale -- United States. I government although regulations. That I was trying to do a little bit about how I would term struggle out -- shop later in Tibet. And silently while president to have -- barrels Papa trust treasure no more barrels of consultation. Whatsoever just a little about like -- and. Yeah I'm afraid you're right and and we talk got a lot. About the ill advised the legislation. That is proposed and in many cases passed in Washington but to me. Perhaps an even larger threat is the one that you correctly point out and that is over regulation by an overbearing. Federal government. -- if you look at. Juncture yes you do it to you agent first juice loose too light and you and you thought about what impact our everyday basis that they. If it -- -- cabbage. It -- won't let a thousand words right what about the 2000. Page. They ask don't look Obama care right just psyched about what that actually rate. And what's also disturbing and then we touched on this one Larry Pratt was with me in the last hour of the program. Now there's actually judicial authority or judicial approval. For a home number of these agencies EPA is one. To extend and and decide for themselves. What the rules will be and as far as I'm concerned that's as far afield from what the founders intended as you could possibly get they specifically pointed out. The laws and regulations should should be passed legislative way. By the congress not by some. Unelected bureaucrat who couldn't care less about how his rulings or his regulations. Will affect people in the real world. Well let me just say what this might talk forgive us -- what -- selection now. -- out of patience so America. Yeah I'm migrate.

Governor Nikki Haley who is going to be joining me next week.

To the governor's mansion and if you've never been down there. Now it is really really nice. My baby don't Brenda and I were down their. Number of years ago 4 AM the party that they conducted for the media. When. Former. Governor I took time out from a hiking -- actions. To host the media down there 28 after 4 o'clock I yeah I came across this story today to. That is from the amazing true facts section and. Fact. City official improve. And that's. Bob McClain present. So you'll -- a good voice what does he hit the jackpot. And the sounds like -- what happened to me what does he hit the jackpot but then lost the lottery ticket. Tough -- right. For the rest of your life you feel like the the idiot you could have been a millionaire well. I'm not necessarily if you live in Connie -- The great white north. About a year ago someone in Ontario. Bought a winning ticket for jackpot worth 47. Million dollars. But they never came forward to collect. So months go by someone called in and claimed to be the winner but didn't have the ticket. So officials rather than you know treating it as a crank call to yeah sure right yeah I got a winning take it right here now. Officials which of the store where the ticket was sold checked the credit card records and the surveillance video. And determined that the person wasn't. The real winner. But here's or against Anderson turned out the ticket was purchased. When the credit card. So fast forward to last week 55 year old Catherine Jones. Heard a knock on the door. Opened it to see several lottery officials who informed her. She was the real winner. Turns out Katherine wants the ticket before she was even able to check the numbers. But lottery officials were able to prove she won by checking the credit card records and watching video from the store police are behind the ticket. She still has to go through some red tape but she will be able to collect the money in about thirty days.

Money penny just informing me to do we get a text message on that money that along a caller. -- out on traffic spotter said down it was just direct 85 southbound. Near the highway nine exit. And send it to traffic we'll start due to back up as a result of that already don't know which a plane it was and or which when you should get into it again by 'cause we've just got. Basic information to begin with that 85 southbound closed -- highway nine so watch out of that back to the phones Leo let's bring in Jeff. Here on the Friday free for all he is in my stomping grounds of Taylor's hello Jeff and welcome to the program. Obama got it -- Friday it was so eventually beat you. And it's certainly took its own sweet time getting here. If there really follow that hurt you guys. Reporting that it and my practice not been able to edit shared our debate they get there and most of time. Well this -- your whole problem. Very edible it tad bit that dole a -- ready statement that we struck drag adult. Oh yeah the guy they dragged the other female pit -- And you know our power act gave that a lot Bol -- you know is -- -- are bad you ever say the attack another girl play -- -- -- they're frustrated and also I got out don't want to be cut brought. Up. By eight era that extranet people it -- people who. That bait women are beta our whole person and respect credible very sheriff's department for. Mr. -- street and our hope those people a debit do a lot of diverted declare it right there will simply just not gentlemen. Bartlett bit built but also what it is there yeah about -- or eighty morneau. Yeah out I I think be it in -- I don't know if it I guess it is something that some folks just hands. And -- cruel streak I mean how else do you explain somebody doing something as vicious as that. -- it's. Somebody thought that -- -- able able -- -- Now you're right I mean it's it's like bullying you know most bullies are cowards and if you stand up to them. They fault. Very you know that the port golf probably stood there -- mr. Obama's dirt out of -- retrospect. Having a lot -- will fix that happened -- And I was just just delighted -- That they -- better about it Arabia. Maybe they'll get this -- but it definitely -- opened by a list of all of or call eight and so that is. These mobile Crowell audio books at Marietta Libya. I didn't show up now. Well and you know on where we're critical and I think in in some instances where correct in in being critical of the media. But this is an instance where in large measure I suspect. The media attention that was given -- this case helped to help them the law enforcement authorities to catch this guy. At least they gave him enough visibility than it was in the top of mind with people. You know it did not complete failure -- -- there at all times and most. -- just just also fighting the good at bat in they're in their power that they. At 2 o'clock civil or we don't tell people that you know let's start off there was still blood that they expect -- bird. Beat their whopper -- should -- a bit better -- a lot better. Well look at me -- look at all the serial killer or killers and had in their past. Not torturing animals as a child. Well I -- gas well will be cabinet that is -- triple FaceBook -- and they appeared to be out some direction as -- I don't know we want to inspire other continent vigilante violence but I'm sure this guy is gonna. Face judgment that he deserves in the right way in the court system. Hopes to hunt him. -- like to protect our golf. Anchor Jeff I appreciated -- out because I'm an I'm an animal over a dog lover myself and -- any animal. Mistreated and that way. -- up -- 44020 minutes now before five. Home audio. In the background. Loan is blue. Big instrumental hit. -- -- -- Quarter before 5 o'clock finally Mac program with scattered showers across the update and probably worth mentioning again interstate rest. This afternoon 85 southbound pretty close the -- nine. And -- our traffic spotters. All that and in a few minutes ago so I'll probably start in the back of their already caution advised and I don't know off. You know there's an injury accident I have ambulances on scenery and emergency first responders it'll have more. On that what we checked that traffic next time in about five minutes in the meantime back to the phones Leo let's bring in Gerri. Who was in -- hi Gerri welcome to the Bobby -- show. Are married aren't so far so good. I've got a question for. We hear all these reports about president Obama's poll numbers thinking like a big rock and a big fish pond right. And we hear from every demographic group known to man. People who live in Peoria Illinois Jack eighties anybody drought Koreans. All the Democrats achieved several remote except for one work. And now what I'd like them I'd like to -- -- the media including Rush Limbaugh. Never reports. All the black groups and whether or not. I think he's darn good government. That's a good question. Not my opinion errors I don't know what it calls they would. They perceive as being a racist if they gave those number. That's probably the rationale behind it yeah because that's the way they think you know their their full of clash in the end and class divide and ethnic divide. And every other kind of a divisive measure you can think of the pit us against one another so we don't turn on the film I guess. A -- but it would be interesting considering the fact. That the following the presidential elections. They always do and ethnic breakdown of you know we've we heard that enough. Them first election -- first presidential election cycle than the President Obama got something like 92%. Of the black vote and similar or maybe even a little bit better. In in the 2000 and in the last election in 2012 so. If that's the case if they do a -- and then why not do it when they're doing doing -- regular polling -- -- I assume that -- that they asked. Race when they do that because otherwise how would they have the other ethnic figures that they years. You gotta believe they're doing it got hurt in this -- about it was an up or. You know you -- people it. White males aged one in time. Females aged one in his stance on motors yeah I'll be Hispanic voters Japanese boat like everybody except. -- -- It -- it be curious because. I know that the they the conservative African Americans -- they show that the conservative blacks. That they call the show have told me and him shared with the audience that when they are critical of Obama. That their somewhat ostracized in their in their own community -- you know uncle common and all that sort of stuff. -- whether that attitude is changing now would be interest and you know because. Among other reasons. Pocketbook issues if you look at the black unemployment rate. Especially among young urban males young black urban males. It it's -- the numbers are absolutely. A historic. An expert and I guarantee you that it's here I'm you have access to the polling that you would look at -- -- guarantee of that demographic is included and they are. And -- end and my opinion is that if if the black community as a whole steel supports President Obama it is purely from a racist -- Yeah I would have to be because of why why would you continue to support somebody. -- who endorses policies that are not in that beyond best interest of your people. Well I can I would think that. Particularly in the coming months or so. A lot of -- black friends who work for large corporations. Are going to be getting notices -- -- -- plant are going to change yes and that might happen quicker somebody told. Probably rushed this morning. From UPS. And debit -- having a meeting next week. Last before the end of this year that is unexpectedly large corporation -- well I Gary lately are getting. That's right and as of January 1. You know so given that. These these folks are having to to make plans now I'm sure that major corporations have already. I've tried to make plans best they could considering that they change horses in midstream all the time on this stuff and Obama says that Obama cares whatever he says it is today. And it all depends on when the company's side insurance plan actually yes -- and back could be happening into work up to that ultimately -- They don't get a lot of bad news for a lot of people. Sadly there will be and -- as I said when now Larry Pratt from Gun Owners of America was in here earlier we've seen millions of people received cancellation notices already wait until it's tens of millions. I think that that won't happen very quick. And you can you talk about a firestorm in this country holy -- Obama ain't seen nothing yet. Amber thanks for the call Gerri appreciate -- very much of -- good weakens -- For fiftieth ten minutes now before five commissioner traffic problem out on 85 southbound CNN has more on that and the rest. A real time traffic I had. Welcome back Friday free for all edition of the Bobby -- show about three minutes away from his time. Time enough for me get back on the -- go to Finland and bring in bomb here on the Bobby -- cal hi Bob I -- Friday golf. I would gears a bit late. Heard again and even direction.

Who tossed. Just the opposite to President Obama. That would be soft balls to the president as his approval ratings continue to sink. Apparently they think a good way to. To help that out is to go -- MSNBC. Is no audience whatsoever we'll talk about that it's 5 o'clock.
