This is the -- castle show Broward and charge my batteries specialists and. And good morning welcome to this day after Christmas Vince -- affiliate -- castle. Live local to your G1 063 good to be. Back with you hope you had a great Christmas time -- -- -- -- about the Christmas is when you that is if you would like you. Just some of the I guess you can say inner conflict I always experience of this every single year. And here I am well -- and tell you how old I am but I still alive wrestle with this issue. For a number of reasons but I away -- one of those people who had trouble getting gifts in time. I know while. -- will be a little one last year we had some less minutes gifts. That did it literally arrived last minutes. Fortunately they all made it. Which is a good thing I noticed a number of posts on FaceBook people who did not get their gifts or people who. Ended up having to go to the UPS location to pick them up. On Tuesday evening. And they were not very happy at all did you experience -- this turmoil love to hear from you if that is the case you call -- advantage talk -- the numbers in Greenville 232 word. In Spartanburg 57 Ford WORD's. So we talk about Christmas and holiday season and TV experiences that you like to share in that regard. As well as will be talking about the news of the day also intrigued about this. Home invasion. Shooting that took place here tonight is just another reminder fresh reminder of the importance of self defense. And this really flies in the face of all of the propaganda. That continues to come against us in this area of efforts by a government authorities to try to impose gun control. And it's the reality is I was at the Milwaukee share. One of them some months ago many months ago communicating that that you're the first responder. And you have to understand that you just cannot. Wait for the police to come. And settled thinks because by that time it is too late we get a really. Terribly tragic situation do you. Probably hadn't heard about. In the Charlotte area. We have a a firefighter. Who was coming back from vacation with his wife and I believe his wife is pregnant. Comes back to the house. Notices that apparently somebody's there's so he drops his wife off. At a neighbor's home. Goes back to the home. To confront suspects at his home they shot him. This guy AM held on for a number of days this happened the early part of December. He died I believe it was last Friday. Four suspects involved in this thing. Against just -- -- -- of and and I I hate to. Think in these terms -- -- particularly with the economic situation that we face and the likelihood that's not gonna get any better. I think these kinds of things and fortunately. I'm probably going to increase. Could have been allowed people out who simply do not care. There out for whatever it is you're trying to pursue in terms of getting I mean in this case I think they got some games since mother electronics. And they don't care there's no regard whatsoever for human life. So love to talk about this story and also. What happened here in self defense situation that we've described. And who did your thoughts. My name's Vince Coakley filling in for us castle. Eight O nine and issues we bring you traffic and weather together on the nights and we continue -- rest -- show Vince Coakley filling -- share in the state after Christmas. A lot to talk about today including the political news of the day we always enjoy talking about those subjects. One of the things that it's. We've started talking about. Was this whole invasion and shooting that took place in Anderson county Monday night. This was set Oman -- wrote. And it's what happened your man attempted to break into -- home. And it's shot the 76 year old homeowner seventies. -- reading that correctly in my. Vision is starting to go at this old age. And it's in this case the homeowner managed to return fire struck the suspect Hutus fleeing the scene. In a black issue -- Of course as you know the story he died at the hospital. I hate -- I don't know. -- -- I don't know if people. Are are. How shall we describe it are just in a mode of burying their heads in the sand. If they don't understand the gravity. Of this kind of situation. Because this can happen anybody anybody. At any time. The last thing you want is to be in a situation. Where you're defenseless. And this is what they're going to print and and we've talked about this before in regard to the the mass shootings that have happened -- And sure there are a number of people research this particular subject that. Those who have carried out these attacks have always chosen soft targets they know an advanced. That these are gun free zones -- schools gun free zone. And of course any place for you put a sign up to -- guns are not allowed concealed carry is not allowed. And it basically sends a message. That. -- This is an opportunity. There's really no better way to put this -- more accurate way to put this. I was also watching video and let me share a segment of the audio of this. I'm a woman who experienced the horrors of Nazi Germany. And one of the warnings that she's given -- how important it is to. That we hold onto our gun rights because this is one of the things that the government comes after. I hate about you but I also find. That it's very common people -- you forget history. And the -- as we have it an educational system. Bad is. A long time ago I concluded. It's really not about education it's about propaganda. That's really what government schools are all abouts. And I would contend that people educated in schools. I'll just pick out of a time period of time frame fifty years ago I would contender probably better educated. Then what we're putting out now. I don't think there is concerned about you remembering. As they are about you forgetting. Because have you learned the lessons of history. You will not allow politicians. Two years -- your constitutional rights. What are my favorite -- candidates right now in North Carolina and the interest of full disclosure I consider a friend of mine he's running for US senate. Name is Gregg Brandon. If you ever have the opportunity here and go listen to what the sky shares. And something is really stayed with me. As a theme that I like to talk about a my program now. Which is. The issue of sovereignty. In your first the fact that you as a human being our sovereign. And as a result of that status. Your constitutional rights are not to be a bridge. -- what you have to do is assert your sovereignty. This gets into the idea of consent of the governed. So. What we've got now unfortunately is. Several generations of people been brainwashed. Into conformity. They've -- their sovereignty. In the interest of any number of things. And I think all of them probably fall under the umbrella of security. What are it's some sort of economic security or some type of military security and it's therefore we just need Q. You know trust the government they'll take care of us. And now we have these revelations from Edwards Snowden. That have come out recent months which indicates to us not only. Do we have a federal government that's been spying honest we have politicians. Who were in control of the use operations. Who have continually lied to us. I know it's been an ongoing battle between people who say that. And we're slow news day. On one hand. There are people were -- treasonous on the others on the other hand people say that he is actually hero. For some time I think. I was kind of in between on that when I was waiting to see what kind of information was out there. And it's really a mixed bag because I do think and I suspect there's probably been some information that's been leaked. That undermines the security of the United States. The question is who do you blame for that -- you blame. Is the federal government for not being honest with us as Americans and as a result. They've created a person Mike Edwards Snowden. -- -- found it necessary to put the information about the means. That are being employed to spy on Americans and others. Now everybody now obviously -- idea of the plea for everybody is responsible for their own actions. But at the same time. I think what's been accomplished and what we have been made aware of by Edwards -- is priceless. The question is what are we going to do with that information. I don't know about you but there in their things like this that. Caused me to think. That we have been so a nest that -- By soft tyranny. That's. I don't know what it's going to -- The cause Americans to rise up and demand that all of this foolishness stop. They do what they do -- in with impunity. They don't care they're not thinking about your sovereignty they are thinking about their control and that's really what all of these things are about. So called gun control is not about guns. It's about people control. Which takes me back to what I said about this woman and we may play a segment of what she had to say. At a public event this was a Nazi Germany survivor. And this is part of what she was warning Americans. Everything that's been going on in this country. But at the same time it's reminder of what's taken place. In Nazi Germany. Now. I'm not here to. Necessarily. Attached this to one person this is really in natural progression of progressive -- And socialism. This is where all leaves and it really doesn't matter who is in the White House because ultimately. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. This is where all leads. Until people all the time as a black man. I am not interested in setting up an imperial presidency. I don't care if it's a white man a black man an Asian man Hispanic man or woman. I do not want my sovereignty undermines. Nor should you. I'm not going to bow down to any team. This -- what the American people. They have to come to the same conclusion. And this doesn't just apply to the executive office it also applies to those. Who in the legislative and judicial branches. Because they have set themselves up above the constitution. And it's only you and I who can take that back. What are your thoughts on all of this we welcome your calls. In Greenville to agree to a 9673 Spartanburg 5749673. English and Spanish talk line right now. Ninety minutes after the hour for -- -- time to look at traffic and weather together in the nights this is. Russ cancels show. Howard and charge my batteries specialists. And we continue the -- -- -- -- -- -- filling in on this day after Christmas glad to have you with this you can use. These text line and it's 71307. And will be sharing some comments from there and just moments you can also. Connect with the media on the Vince Coakley page on FaceBook -- One of our loyal listeners sheer. For some reason just seems to tap right into the heart what I started out talking about Christmas holiday. When I meet even elaborating on this whole conflict over Christmas. I think Shannon. Describes his very well Jesus was not born on the 25. More like spring. This holiday celebrates the sun god and has taken over by paganism completely. I'm a Christian. Thanks for reading and about that Shannon and this is part of the conflict to go I sure all the time and please understand I'm not trying to change your convictions or what you do. I wonder if anybody else has this conflict I love to hear from you had to agree to 973. Or 5749673. About this this. You -- obviously got the commercialism the goes on with Christmas on the one hand. And the whole Santa Claus thing in -- over here you got the people we need to keep Christ in Christmas. And so I gotta be honest with you I am. Not compelled first off. To believe that Christmas has its origins in anything resembling christianity. Now if that's what people wanna celebrate and they make the choice to do that this is a free country that's great. But it's. I'm just every year kind of confronted with this and wrestle with -- -- in my mind I love to know with. What are your thoughts are about this and whether this is a struggle for you as well. We mentioned the text line does Reebok in a number of subjects here at the top of the program one MBH home invasion. -- that home and there was 39 years old in trouble all his life just got out of jail. But a fairly said they were shocked that he was involved in this go figure I'm being shocked. I mean this gets to the idea again of repeat offenders. Not an issue necessarily wanna go into unless you want to. I'm concerned about the entire prison system. I just think it's one of the biggest waste. That's been developed here in this country we are wasting lives. I prefer more of a system. And I think chuck Colson was kind of a champion of this issue you may remember him Christian leader crew. He was involved in the Watergate scandal and after coming out of prison serving his time he just served magnificently. I'm one of the areas where his serve was in a minister called prison fellowship and he was one of the people advocating reform. -- I think which ought to do. Is make people. Pay for their crimes literally. I much rather see them payback. The damage they have caused. Then go to prison and learn how to become a better criminal. Because that seems to be what's happening at the same time we are housing them we are feeding them just never has made much sense to me. On the Christmas subject I orchid UPS. I can verify they didn't have enough people to process the last minute. Traffic. Almost everyone has a second or third job and couldn't stay thirteen hours from 2 AM. Until past 3 PM poor planning and short sighted decisions are common. This was the most absurd Christmas I have ever experienced at UPS. While. And I think this goes beyond the subject of UPS you can also throw in here. Those comments from the text like -- can throw in the store's hours and Wal-Mart store I don't know why did this my wife and I we were clintons for punishment. A -- that was Tuesday evening or Monday evening it was a zoo an absolute zoo with check out. And one of the comments and this is not new this this store probably has 36 or so check -- lines. And probably three quarters of them were open and I am thinking to myself where are the other cashier's. I'm sure to be in full staff have every single check out open. This kind of ties in with the point made here -- UPS. I it just didn't make sense to me. And here we have an account of what happened here UPS they were understaffed. I wonder what kind of answers we're gonna get on this one. From UPS if you read an experience that regard and you miss some some presence getting goes on time we'd love to hear from you as well. As we continue your live local to your G1 63 Vince Coakley and -- council show now time for look at traffic and weather together on the nights. This is the -- castle show. Our man -- charge my batteries specialists. The US doesn't show Vince Coakley -- and we can talk a little bit about Christmas. And every crazy news at the controls talking about -- One aspect in this that we can develop. What -- -- workers at UPS and whose mission here in this story he got people with second and third. Jobs why are -- working two and three jobs. Because we're not providing full time jobs. I don't know how much you've been following this for the past few months but I watch these figures all the time. And a good number of these jobs you when they release all these figures on Friday they always talk about all the unemployment rate has come down yet again. This many jobs have been created. And very rarely do you hear the fact and it is a fact. That most of these jobs that are being created are part time jobs. This is what our economy is sputtering around on right now I think it's one of the most under covered stories. The fact that. We're really in trouble. The other thing that I like to talk about is the labor participation rates. Which last I checked goes back to in 1978. Which means. We have the labor force. Equivalent to the labor force of 1978. That's not good. At all. And yet. Do you see much deep digging by the mainstream news media on the subject of course not. I think. There are significant things are going on ballot this economy in fact. -- I believe we're gonna have Peter Schiff on this program talking about this among other subjects. Because he believes they're gonna have to resume you know they cut back on the quantitative easing. Because they figured all the economy's coming back we can pull back ten billion dollars a month we don't have to do 85 billion dollars now we just do 75 billion. But Peter Schiff is saying they're gonna come back. And they're going to realize they can't even pull back. This is artificially inflating the economy it's inflating the stock market causing people to believe things are better than they are. This is a very dangerous situation. We consider the rest guest for show and Juliette swipe to weigh in this morning. A belated Merry Christmas. -- -- Can't be here you again burn you Merry Christmas the year. I would I think we're extremely important that Christian. Celebrate the birth of Christ. And considering the fact that god. They're broad. In many many examples. Or or or our bank accounts in scripture. -- the birth of Christ then they opened a new corporate. And the get -- of fifteen victory will he speak of the creed. Under longer and being born widgets Christ. I would say Jeremiah that there are many many old testament scriptures fort Helena Brit that crowd. I can and then you'd have Matthew Mark it's -- John. They -- both. That gift of god in and sending his -- as a baby. Has the baby is proof. That as virgin birth that this man who came lord and believe Christ. Right -- let me go because I don't get cut to the -- here rift with where my struggle comes in because I do think this is important and as you know. In Semitic culture genealogy is important and I believe affirming that is important. -- -- the other things that I have a problem with. Is I think there are a lot of people that love to keep Jesus as a baby. But they don't like. The king of kings and lord of lords image they don't like the image of the Jesus who's going to the temple whipping the money changer is out. And I and I almost think this is kind of a regressive thing to every year come back and reflect on the birth again. Well let me and let me get this they do if we're there we're very specific date in history. That. Mary injured went to take Patrick. These banks. Aren't establishing. These six to 101000 year rain out of this world. It is that there refute revelation that the reward could be you give us billions of years. That you -- -- at least not only immigrant that the children. -- -- I get that Juliette and and I I appreciate your point because and I -- should understand one thing that I'm not so one who is unbelievable I wanna make that very clear but I certainly. I just wonder whether this regressive going back to this every single year. Is that the best way to kind of communicate that message I don't know I'm just raising the question. Also on the text line. You know the more -- desire celebrate Christ's birth the less I desire to celebrate Christmas the kind of interesting isn't it. Now weight forty time for look at traffic and weather together. Vince Coakley filling in for -- castle. Lot of local WRD 1063. Mended so I'm really company here and Eagles advantage dog Leinart and number agreeable to agreed to words Spartanburg fives and four word or 9673. Couple calls -- waiting but also got -- A lot of things that are being communicated on the text line. On the Christmas subject first we have I'm not conflict -- over. Christmas. My family doesn't give presents to each other we renew our faith in Jesus it's Tuesday after all. As a Christian I celebrate the birth of Christ is the actual date mattered not to be if we -- to summer spring sort. People need to relax and get real. And we have this to be perfectly honest I could care less about the birth of Christ -- -- wax poetic all day about the symbolism is berth as a man. -- important part of the story is his death for the pianist for our sins and is rising again in defeating death to return again. We as Christians often trap ourselves in the -- and mark. Very inning surrounding cries to not enough of the importance of why he was here. On this FedEx UPS issue. Here's another perspective and boy this one now drives home. Personal responsibility. Don't we talk about this all the time as. Freedom loving conservatives. Vince the UPS FedEx problems were caused by all the people that waited till Monday to other presidents with the next day delivery promise. Add those packages that were ordered Sunday Saturday and Friday. It was an overwhelming number the moral of the story is to order early or shop early do not wait until I asked him. But I love it. -- hope that that is terrific. That's we continue our conversation here live and local WR deal let's go now that you might welcome the program. Hello there. Who -- a couple comments about the economy and had the holidays. The Christmas party in power today and so it was Easter Bangkok has nothing do with paganism.

That was at which it was spelled out in black and white I -- That's pretty cool stuff there Richard in fact I've heard. About this before I believe in it it's really interesting again it is all firms -- And and I won't be very clear here lest anybody think I'm not one of those unwashed on believers because I do believe in Christ and I ME Christian myself I don't. And I think what part we have to do is to be able to separate tradition. From reality tradition from real history and I think sometimes it's tough drive some people crazy run walk for the program got about a minute. Such yes. When -- all playing basically.
