Good Morning America. And I was elected to represent. The citizens of Harris exposing alliance exaggeration. There are too many goes on the street. Those 93. Million Americans today gun battle. Loony left and when Donald Trump says civil war. World well we're gonna negotiate a better deal for the last like OJ Simpson saying don't rather find the real. Good Monday morning. Back with you he had a great weekend somewhat of a restful weekend. It's been a very very busy past few days. Been through a couple of different cities for different reasons which I'll go into a little bit later on the broadcast. Good to have everybody back together for those of you not familiar we you're on to radio stations. Fans. I was on one of those on Thursday and Friday for very important events radio thumb which will talk about a little bit later on. Those have you here in the Charlotte area may not be as familiar with but I want to tell you about. That a little bit later on as well because we have some very exciting and important news along those lines. I wanna start off just reflecting on distractions. Give you a bit of background. I told you have a great deal fascination. With aviation. In fact recently I watched. An episode of a show. With a friend of mine and I've seen this episode before. But. I watched it again because it's really one of the best episodes of this particular program. You're probably think it's quite ironic for a person who flies frequently. Michelle I enjoy watching his call air crash investigation. There are so many incredible life lessons in this particular. Program. And it was really cool because I was talking with this person we were watching this together. Aunts. I was making the tie to what is happening in our general society to this now. I'm got I'm gonna be a spoiler here and tell you what happens in this particular episode of air crash investigation by the way this has been out for years this is not new. But it was a 1972. I believe crash of an airplane. And the cause of the crash you know let me give me back a little bit. The plane crashed. Because everybody in the cockpit was focused on a light bulb. I lightbulb. And nobody was paying attention to flying the plane. Can you imagine all the permutations of applications their art to our lives. Whether it's politics. The way we govern our lives. It can reminds me of expression. Jesus referred to is straining at Mets in swallowing camels. But that happens. Probably wondering what does this have to do with anything has a lot to do with the news that we digest. Day in day out. And I am. Profoundly convinced. But a good part of what is going on in our world and our universe is distraction this episode by the way of air crash investigations called fatal distraction. Editors as a result of this fatal distraction. People died. I told jurors can give you the spoiler you still have to watch it to get the full magnitude of this thing. What happened is there's a guy who. The captain. Notices that the gear light. The landing your life didn't come on so the question is. Is to gear down. Or is and the ball but just not working or is it. The brawl was outs. And the jury is out which one is too. Could be catastrophic to lands without landing gear. So they can try to figure out what's the deal what's the deal. In the process. The captain apparently bumped. The steering column which disengage the auto pilot. And a darn thing about it is and I'm not. Meeting this disrespectfully. Sadly most the people I think back cockpit died as well. Nobody paid attention to the fact that the plane was descending. The whole time. As soon as he bumped that control wheel. Took it out of auto pilot it sort of started descending until it crashed into the Everglades. And killed. I think around a hundred people. There's a lot of lessons here as I mentioned. There were distracted. By a ball. Eight ball. Here's the other question why do if three people in a cockpit because that time the head of flight engineer as well. Why did three people have to focus on one problem this this happen in your office. You work place. We you have maybe a micro managing and leadership that has to get involved in minutia. And you have all of these people get involved in the same thing. Because what they concluded was one of the big problems. Was a lack of crew resource management. CRM. And the idea behind this is okay. I'll focus on figuring out with a landing gears down you focus on our altitude and make sure. There were flying the plane correctly. That's what should've happened. Nobody everybody is hyper focused on this stupid bulb. This is what's going on in our society right now the media is in a frenzy. Over several things. Charlottesville. If you listen this program with regularity whatever I told you about these demonstrations and counter demonstrations. I have appealed to you please do not go don't show up don't go and try to prove how much you're not a racist. And please don't post things on social media to try to prove to me that you're not a racist. Just big no more than nine cents ignore it. Here's some of dredges headlines Charlottesville chaos NBC ignores our own crew assaulted by antitrust. Far left group vows bullets for political enemies. Threatened to kill president murder M do like Qaddafi. Related story Spike Lee scores biggest opening in ten years with Klansman. And this story which will talk about. Nearly two thirds say racial tensions worse. Isn't this interesting. Rory told you that I think history will show. That the administrations have Barack Obama and of Donald Trump will be very similar. In the impact on the American populace. Months are of division. And I think it's just continue to. Let's go back to this crew resource. Management issue. We all should not be focusing for one on nonsense. For another. Rather than following the leader. We need to be asking what are the important things. That we need to be focusing what is the big picture items for the future of the country we need to focus on. One of them is what's happening with our debt which I'm going to delve into after the break. That's an important issue. But we're gonna punt yet again. Because congress can't get its free can act together. This is important. While we're distracted by spectacles. Like on Derosa and for the record. Those you you may think where you hate the president so you probably like admitting she's saying. I don't like anything about this woman. Doesn't mean I'm a fan of trump either. The point of this is this is all a big distraction. All of it. By the way if she didn't have a tape she needs to shut the hell up. This is still Vince Coakley radio program. They've. So I start out talking about. What amounted to you aid. Fatal distraction. I wanna talk about us. What we're being distracted from. And here's what Thaddeus. Great story here by CNS news. Federal government collected a record. A lot of this. 1000000000415. Billion. Dollars an individual income taxes through the first ten months of fiscal 28 team. The fiscal year ins this period anyway this ten months in July. But here's the rest of the story but the federal government also ran a 683. Billion dollar deficit. For those ten months. So let me get this straight record collections. Then. A deficit. Why does that happen why are we taking in more money. And yet we're still running deficits. The previous record for individual income tax collections the first ten months of the fiscal year. Was in fiscal year Tony seventeen when the treasury collected. 1000000000351. Billion dollars an individual taxes. Now overall federal tax collections did decline in the first ten months of this fiscal year compared to last year. Now while the individual. Amounts increased. Corporation income tax collections declines. We talked about this just a few days ago. And I mentioned this deficit. 683. Billion dollars. What are we doing about this. Now what chip richer Jersey away for a moment. And your pump pumps are way. And let's be honest about this. Can you show me an appreciable difference between this administration and the last. In dealing with the debt and deficits. Where is it where's the difference. Because the truth of the matter is we really don't care. We don't. Over the weekend I saw a really good tweets. By Justin a much who has been on this program. I think one of the most consistent libertarian voices on Capitol Hill. Here's what he posted on Twitter. It is embarrassing Republican leaders are again talking about putting off spending cuts. The president's war funding or shut down talk is distracting everyone and there's that word again distracting. Distracting everyone from the bigger issue that government spending continues to grow unabated. Just as it did under the last administration. Are you kidding me. I hasten their difference between Republicans and Democrats. T there's no difference. And what we're doing. Is we're falling for the bait. Of all the shiny objects. Cool look over here here's the media. Look over here here's some RSS. Look over here here's. These demonstrators. In Charlottesville. You know and there's a point where you just have to say you know what's. It's not worth my attention. It really isn't. And then you have to call those people to account let me go to the second part of what I shared about that air crash investigation. Issue which is about crew resource management. You notice how everybody should have been playing a part in instead everybody was focused on a stupid ball. We all have a part to play. And I don't mind saying this and I will say this to my dying day whenever that is. I'm sick and tired of us how playing follow the leader. Especially when the leader is not leading us. Down a path of responsibility. And it doesn't matter who idiots. One person can be talking about one thing. But somebody else can be addressing another subject altogether. No one person has everything figured how to. Texas one of the lessons. That entire story that I shared with you. One person should have been dealing with the ball another person should have been watching the altitude. And communicating with the tower. Same thing year. You wanna talk about armour set you wanna talk about Charlottesville Goran had you and have feuds with the media and they could total body head out of yourself go for it. But at the same time. Did your rear end on Capitol Hill and present a fiscally responsible budget and tell those morons that passed the approach appropriations bills the constitution requires. Get a freaking job done. Everybody wants to follow the leader. Who wouldn't be talking about today who we got a rally about today. And it's a huge distraction. And I'm concerned long term it could be. A deadly distraction. But I do want to apart from Charlottesville. Talk about what's happened in this country in this story is kind of scary about race relations. Because. We all seem to agree tensions are on the rise. To try to Shannon in Shelby good morning. But it. May take up a ball back there we go one more strict about it. Chocolate milk. To define a big company now all reporter Bernard. The left or to see what the book reader. What's our what's first. But it won't make them out at you were there are just you're there just aren't what they they're. And they're they're all here one year old tiger police protecting. Eclectic Saber goes early this certain that he is there and then also. And I would also add another important meaning behind this year and then. They want violence. Yes sir. They want violence and they wanna be there to show it. There are not what we're able here and there of their cherished organ at night when it stopped. By most al-Qaeda earned an adult. But having said that. We also have to do some self examination Shannon because how many millions of Americans would love to sit and watch that over and over again if that happens. Upload the sickening fascination that Apple's bow of arch we're not what you are. The affair. Yeah it's it's. You know it's it's the same thing I mean this is not everybody so don't call me and tell below the year it all these people. Same reason a lot of people like to go to watched NASCAR. Because they're hoping for Iraq. There are. And they wanna see it. So. I do appreciate your call (%expletive) and very insightful because yes you're you're right about all of these narratives. C and the media does not like peace peace does that make for good headlines doesn't make for good pro lawless. Disturb people with that. How we're gonna get eyeballs. Quiet in the city tonight no murders. And hope no shootings. What are we gonna talk about it him. Cool. There are storms coming. We can bring out our super duper doppler radar. I'm serious folks it's a bit. Now no dig there to my friends who are genuine meteorologists. But this is what it's all about getting eyeballs. And drawing attention. And hey it's fine it's a business model we can we just understand that's what this is this is not journalism. It's business. So we keep that in mind it's very helpful coming up we're talk a report in the aftermath. Of Charlottesville last year. This is still Vince Coakley radio program. We're maxed heavy discussion about some. Crew resource management about focused on issues that are important. And avoiding distractions. I'm just listening in the news here locally. Where we had a story the one in the audio tapes. Of numerous this conversation with the president. This is just such a circus but scrawl out to a call from porch in Morse told good morning. Good morning advance hope you're feeling better throughout all of history here are I think the biggest problem we haven't the United States and in the world trade and corruption. And the one continue to feed up the other one the lord saw that the harder just wouldn't look at above all else to condone what he was just awaken me. Has worked hard and really made out of the way people treat each other and first of all you know I don't think this is ever gonna end until he comes back police say event. I'm with you. That she could think you've hit it on the head their butch not too optimistic that we're gonna get a handle on this thing I do appreciate your call. In the trolls are back. And the text line when your program goes off. I won't say with a program is I switch to. A certain other broadcasts for my education. This is a reference to the previous host by the way. This person was communicating the idea that you know. When that country guy comes in and I switched back to rush. Just saying condescension is intolerable. I just had to ship them because I think it's absolutely hilarious. I'm a pilot issue of Vince recent studies have shown pilots become too dependent on automatic flight systems they're for the basic flying skills have suffer. Yep. Some pilots have been sent back to a special school concentrates on basic flying skills. Yet. And when you're talking about the country what are the basics. Yen and one of the ironies here if you're a quote business isn't this the whole argument that I heard during the campaign all we need somebody to bring some business sensibilities to government. By continuing government overspending. Is that what they had in mind. And yeah I'm just asking. And I know their people say well congress has to cooperate. You have to demand that congress cooperate and if they don't you Vito their garbage legislation. You tell all right and tell Mitch McConnell you send me another over spending. Plan and I was red state budget has not it's not even a budget. You send me this garbage again I will veto it and we have to shut the government down we were shut this stupid government down the whole thing. And we'll keep it down the entire thirty of my administration if necessary. Until you figure out what you're doing. Talk takes. Leadership. But now we have time to. Send out tweets about LeBron James and other nonsense. I don't care about that crap and I don't care about football players nearly. A really don't. The more you see these stories the more I'm convinced. It's like the book that a rate years ago amusing ourselves to death this is exactly what's going on. Our republic is sinking into oblivion. And we're focused on nonsense. Vince in all honesty trumps been only an office two years as compared to the fallen messiah. Giving some time before comparing apples to apples. Prince I just can't stand you barking at us Mike guy. Barking at you really. Prince of anyone believes Trump's going to shrink government. I have bad news for them now trump wants to create a new branch of the military for space. Yeah. How much is going to creates cost to create star fleet America. Also this what is journalism fick comes from humans isn't it editorial ism in some form. Am absolutely. I love this text from Paul. Out of Greenville by the way I met Paul in Greenville on Thursday or Friday to remember which day. This text is Vince is your show on auto pilots is lines are flying the plane. I love that that's great. Let's go out took off from Sam good morning. Hey I know this morning raids is. About case bigger distractions. I mean it's it's the I'll all of dial up until later this simple solution to domestic. Well the most correct personal like that anyways. I'll do OK did you stick. Hey well all want countered what the or built mill table and restart their computer to another Serb girl as a pretty quick. Florida is appropriate or whatever. But you'd stick a trillion dollars in the middle table and you're still a million are that all. What are you going to be delighted because I already got noticed. Why do millions of salt and drink it. Also hope now let's look not a while back I tried that racial tension that's not a problem that's already been done and didn't work out too well. The article one. Section eight of the United States constitution. They talk long but I'm quite an air which are popular attention but they attention of one of our congressional representatives and they say. Stake him. They're taught it's shelved not appropriate money for the army. Bar and our main focus more there that period of two years. Now in my underwear are common cause got this problem that is beside a charmer sir. There if you've ever read the art of war bustle and so. Which is actually used big training our military alt search. They were Allstate there a long drawn out conflict well like brought the greatest of nations. No we're just going to cause any harm you go bankrupt yourself. Look supporters do insult emblem of the country's appetite for which we don't. Liquid that we destroy we rebuilt and her burial ritual profits. I mean. They give Afghanistan for instance how long you've we've been there how much money. And we blew over there. I'd see I'd bet the calculations. And if we get not funded debt it's all the constitution. We would not have a place trillion dollar debt we have a thirty trillion or surplus. It would not surprise me at all Sam hey I appreciate your call your insights here. I mean we fed these warnings for a long time. But again what does everybody do they follow the leader. This is why I mean it's in and and a good part of the time. I have let me let me back up here if you are a leader who knows what they're doing that's great. If you have a leader who's doing the same thing the previous leader was doing and that was wrong. You're not gonna get anywhere. This is why these dissenting voices are necessary. Here's what I'm saying I wanna hear more out of freedom caucus I don't hear from the Justin a mosh is that the Thomas mass seized the Jeff Duncan's. I wanna hear their voices the princess'. They're just you know these the people who need to speak up now. To provide an alternative message read that all the white nor is garbage that you are listening to a good part of the time. Quick call here from Bob good morning Bob. Statements only too well. Run a quote by you now I know up I'll from a very famous hedge fund manager short seller. This quote was.

From the heart of the Carolina. Bringing the DC fans into focus the lens so the liberty. This system fits Coakley radio program. What a fascinating stories of the past few days. I mentioned my fascination with the aviation and you would obviously never be surprised and fascinated by this. Ground worker. Who is able to get onto a plane take off. Fans fly around. This is an absolutely mind boggling story the NTSB is now involved in the investigation. They will among other things check out the black boxes. Which are from I was coming abouts and black to orange. Nonetheless. So this 29 year old man had an unauthorized takeoff in a plane from sea tac international airport Friday night circled the area. In fact ultimately was chased by fighter planes. Any crash on an island. There's a live air traffic control feed of this. And this guy. His name is rich or Richard. When he talks about some of the places he was checking out you just have a great time. Checking out the scenery. Just absolutely reared. When you play a couple of segments in this conversation and I mean I'd love to which you think about this. But beyond this the implications of the concerns is I'm sure and it's Charlotte's. Douglas international. And GSP. There have to be discussions about. What can be done to make sure no one does this. I I just cannot imagine a million years how a person we just get onto a plane. And be able to take off that it. I was I understand this was discovered once the guy. Was on the runway taking off. This was unauthorized. I'm gonna share a couple of cuts with you one of them. You hear him just talk abouts his journey. And his who have I was gonna say concerned because he apparently didn't have any real concern that. This was going to put him behind bars. Let's listen to the first cut. Yeah seriously around the runway just doctor right side and about a mile if they announce at the end. Yeah. Yeah that's McCord he'll. Hello yeah. The letter and I think god let let them and out thereto or how would wanna do that. Okay yeah. I noted they don't they're not there we're we're we're just trying to find a place freelance singling. Yeah yeah I didn't bring it to our own little closed circuit. I got so good you know this slowdown on the witness. Yeah. It's OK rich if you cut its eternal and Karen. And looked looked shaky ground that he had found peace please. Yeah. Our yeah I killed satellite phone I don't know what it is sir Alex. Richard we're not going to think about that particular journalist and turn please. Did you really have to hand it to this air traffic controller how calm he is me I don't know that I'd be this golf. Psych. You need to let that play now what you would you if you lost your minds. He's talking about all these wonderful sites that he's seeing up there. And you would is exhilarating. You know I was just thinking of this. On Saturday. I I went to visit a friend didn't lure people. And. The scenery is just really absolutely awesome this the first time I think I remember seeing. Removal from the air I used to live in the area lived there for summer did an internship at a TV station. And of course driven their plenty of times when I lived in Kentucky. By the way. They approach removal is absolutely. Gorgeous. Here's your flying in you fly past the airport. You know I was sitting on the left side to play neck to look off to my left and see the airport. Ends. When he flew a little bit north of the airport. Which means you fly over the I think the Ohio River. Into Indiana. And then they drew a sharp left turn. And approached the runway insist Saturday of course it was the skies were were blue just absolutely beautiful. So I I am imagining up in this area in the Pacific northwest. Can you imagine all the sites out there. And how exhilarating that must be and I can only gather this guy was just profoundly suicidal. And that's what this was this was a suicide mission. And what this move will listening going to his mind he's he's up there looking at all these wonderful beautiful places before he. Ultimately dice. I would interject here. I'm sure part of the problem he was running into because he had a fuel issue he was concerning about the fuel that he was burning. Typically when pilots are taking off. To go somewhere they have to refuel. This was a. A person who was I think took the plane out of anger a maintenance hangar. So it wasn't like it was any gates where they had fueled the played up to travel somewhere. So probably just had an amount of reserve fuel from the last trip and he's watching this Yoko way wade to companies like. I don't think this is gonna last very long. The first off I would've done is taken off and fight did do this and I started C. That fuel is starting to drop I'd be saying can you help me get this thing on the grounds. And or even landed in the water. You know I you know where's the place a shallow place right to have landed in the water. Cook who saw a sewing taste I don't have the landing just right at least I have some chance of survival. Here is the other clips which he I think this is kind of is. He is. Last words that he's kind of offering to his family and friends. About what he's done here and listen up. A lot of people like Jerry Brown made it stand down it's. Gonna disappoint them it's. The year that I did this. I would like to apologize it's never autograph yeah. Got broken guys yeah. Million users who is. I guess you never really doing some Al. We'll you know we'll. I didn't. Hey Martin I think you. Bad looking thing that happens. Tunnel and hit it right god yeah. We're kind of manner and Singapore. What I do better. Yeah exactly good sound good no doubt and you need an overnight. What this guy I mean honestly guys what are you thinking as you're listening to this audio John Charles. I feel a lot of sorrow for the guy you know and then he just seems oblivious heat he sounds like he's having a great time so. I feel like there's some delusional stuff gone they're just not not awareness of avoid danger he's really causing for others and the danger that he says he didn't even sound set Desi now Souza is playing a video game yes. Because this yes this is one of the things he said he's done this right. I think in his mind he's playing video game. And he was obviously deranged. On goodness 29 year old guy. And it's this is what he chooses doing here is you were talking about this too how he learned. Are they said that he bought or per you can purchase a sixty dollar application or or or program. To download and on your computer you can learn how to. Use this exact time I don't know. Learn how to fly this exact specific plan. Xbox. My goodness. And as we mentioned certain lots of security considerations. Are getting reexamined right now. In airports across the country for good reason what goes through your mind. As you hear about this story would love to your thoughts as we continue our broadcast. This is still this Coakley radio program breaking news for you just in to us a couple minutes ago. I'm sure this will be a shocker. You might wanna pulled the center of the road for this one. How long has this been coming. FBI agent Peter struck. Has been fired. He has been. Fired from the FBI. He's the guy who hopes to leave the bureau's investigation into Russian interference the Tony sixteen election. Until officials discovered he had been sending anti trump texts. Structure lawyer. Said FBI director David. Both rich or the firing on Friday even though they're directed the FBI office that normally candles employee disciplined cited struck. Should face only a demotion and sixty day suspension. Now this attorney. Is saying this undercuts the FBI's repeated assurances that struck would be afforded the normal disciplinary process. The attorney added this is the normal process in any way. More than name. The FBI is not commenting at this point. 22 year veteran of the bureau. Here's this guy who investigator Russian spies defense officials accused of selling secrets to China myriad other important cases. Also into rolled through to the bureau's most high profile investigations the Russian case. And the investigation and Hillary Clinton's use of private email server while secretary of state.

When he was having an affair with by the way he was relegated to a position and human resources. So again. Peter struck fire chief.

Let's go right next to Dave I also wanna get your thoughts on this Peter struck story are you excited about this are you encouraged. Do you do you think this is the end of that story or something else develops from their Dave. Eager to talk about the stolen plane story good morning. Yes sir how are even as our rights are not a pay up for some caller. He really does me every day. Do you thank you very much but yet that I go to you real quick to back that can. I'll station though the marine Rinker the air station adult world that in Southern California. Our heart my daughter in America. And little burden of the air wing in we hadn't event. That in 1986. We had three between squadron one air force Spartan that was mine you know at peace treaty. Reporter recon we hit it 4 o'clock. Well. One of our one of our Marines. Who got a set. It because he couldn't call. Although it for a full pilot even though he wouldn't accomplish that glider pilot I think he's gonna record elect 41000 eat some pretty. The coding error that. And terrorism. Because the bands and didn't. Couldn't qualify for full pilot right so now he was is that plane captain like myself in charge of the aircraft on the ground crew and everything like that. And does a one night he would he'd been sub at 2 o'clock in the morning. It endless. Either relay important for you to panicky and just start these big talker you have to have eight portable Cullen harper it's portable. Turbine next cranks up the engines but you have hydraulic hook ups there that BB guns but typically when we did our escorts you like six guys. Prepping the bird before the pilot ever got there are so this guy goes to all our own press aircraft up. Pilot that before out on the flight deck with no light skirt he would authorize a lot. It could steal we ate pork. Goes all the way out the San Clemente island turns around rival and then it can take over the course it gained as soon as he got out got it. Of course. But at least he blamed it. Only area in England about group RO LUAE NATO a couple of times but I remember because. I hope I was a kid at the time I think I would like 192122. And I'm an imploding. The all the Berry chill or reflect where we lived it. And I didn't know what you hear this but the jets as flying not excellent technical and their the duty they did he do. Why. But Obama that I'm gonna be dead it was important fight perhaps we would burden to bear that. Oh my kids and hurt and it's a 41 year old kid. I know them very accomplished group glider. He was very very accomplished and and he's overcome. That event in prison that they're called in the band's. So we'll lose the outcome or commanding general what what was the outcome of all of this well. Nobody knows what happened. Real you know 208. At the paint but but it entered their verbal war story. Is rather he was very is opera will occur very different look commanding general debates. So there might be used car they look we forgive yet. But we need to proceed as military flying career is over yes standard. But. What if you look at the look up front recorder occasional poor keep the work fast. And you'll you'll find stuff armed. It was like in his foot people who don't have corp all doing. Absolutely yeah very very low rank as the speed limit any sport that is pretty amazing I get it it was a minute and the fact that got all the rock. Yeah and select thirty inclined to like 30000 feet. So. Pretty extraordinary story I appreciate you Colin and if we have enough time to listen briefly to. That's signed their first time caller long time listener. My question was how did he get into a pattern may be able to get onto a runaway well at some point checked and on the what was going on. Yeah and that and that's as I understated ending Charles you were kind of following that particular aspect of the story is how. He's able to get on the runway and take off. It just doesn't make sense that the the security would have been that lacks that he could've pulled at all about somewhat catch onto it. Data as I understand by the time they figured out what had happened it was already too late the guy was in the air I adding that was win. There was recognizes an unauthorized takeoff for appreciate your call. Man this again is quite bizarre and as I mentioned I'm sure there's plenty. Of reviews taking place all across the country. To make sure this kind of thing does not happen again. Mia will be scared to death. What you drywall touch those controls. And you can pretty much guaranteed that. Again breaking news Peter struck FBI agents. Fired. Audio us. Not to get your thoughts. This is still Vince Coakley radio program. We're back on the broadcast. I mentioned the breaking news just a few minutes ago Peter struck fire from the FBI. Over his texting. With his. Lover who also worked for the FBI. The attorney Chris is complaining about this saying this is profoundly unfair. Crimea African river Chris good morning welcome. The Corvette dark don't they are doing well. Well. I've just hearing that that I hadn't heard that he had been fired. And I've got mixed Billy got it I you know my first and then there's a good feeling like you're at the guys should not be still employed by the FBI. My second thought of by might start audits. The old justice delayed is justice denied Hawaii and haven't heard that we. I'm still aren't good guys defense you're congress during all FBI all order all the lawyers and all the he would fight to all the child soaring. And all the protection that I was given. Rooted employment at the FBI. And already you're the regularity during his questioning it through all of its opposition to know these fired. I'm a little disturbing the timing. That doesn't sit well with me an appeal like they protected them. And the audit it and just firing it's just our whole play the tip of the iceberg right. They are I don't know what he smells like this morning but I opus deplorable. I hear you there Chris. You know in I think this one of the many questions people have been asking for quite some time when the world took so long. You know when it was first discovered this guy what he did. But this is the way government and Washington. Works. You can do all kinds of despicable things murmured lowest learner remember her. I think one of the questions before raising two. What does this mean for his retirement money. Is pension. Discern any impact at all on that. Now I'm not one of those people who is looking to exact vengeance on this guy. There's a point where there are consequences. To your choices your decisions. We have another sad breaking news story to tell you about end and this is not. Actually a couple of stories first off. Those you may be familiar with professional wrestling reform of WW beat Jim the anvil nine cart has passed away. Instead at the age of 63. He suffered a medical emergency adds his home or at a home in Florida. This guy was a big superstar in the mid eighties early ninety's as murmured the so called Hart foundation tag team. With Bret the hit man Hart managed by Jimmy Hart. They're all runs together here. So. This is news that is just command a few minutes ago we saw us is survived by his wife three daughters including. You may be familiar with mentally. His daughter is in its idea. WWE superstar. Run so I'm sure listening to this news as well. Not surprising this guy has 63 years old he said some substance abuse issues as I understand it. Along the way of are you there Alonso. Yes I have no as fast as they a lot of them seem to do unfortunately with Kia substance and things like guys to 63 man that's pretty young. But for a wrestler that's not really surprising I remember the heart foundation. Was one of the better tag teams back in the day and nine are you scared me to death as a kid really the actors he that's Psycho laugh. Yes yes and even this low key UE looks crazy. You know he's got this you know kind of buzz cuts. And a beard aegis to add very intimidating look about this guy and I can see how this would scare children you know there's just not too surprising at all. Another story that we are said to report as well. You know appears that. Things are not looking very good now for Aretha Franklin. There are reports that she is also in failing health at this hour. A reporter out of Detroit saying the family members have confirm this news. Gravely ill. Family members are confirming that this morning asking for prayers. And such as usual in this case privacy. The reports are there refit is surrounded by family and people close to her. And saying she is going to be incredibly missed by. Many as a mother sister friend cousin. Her legacy being larger than life and I'm sure you're also a fan as well Alonso of Aretha Franklin and this woman produced a lot of great music. Just an incredible voice specific. You're a fan of music at all he's got to love Aretha Franklin the queen of soul and when I think of her I just think blues Brothers as the first. Thing that pops in my mind humor from blues Brothers when she sing and think. In all the guys are dancing around that cafe that's also. Yeah it's it's it's just amazing. They're just certain people would just stand out in history. As. You know trend setters as legends and you would certainly have to put Aretha Franklin in that category again. The developing story that she is gravely ill and rural course continue to follow this story you have. Thanks again for coming back and talking with the salons or over. Other text line some things that we have covered in the last hour. Paul. Rakes in about the anti Vince people just. Prince all these anti Vince people are listening to fear aren't hearing. There were absorbed. When he realizes. Keep listening. Okay. Prince the stay in history 1889. My house was built old Victorian. It's been kept up 7000 square feet. From. Some rich history there 7000 square feet that's a lot to keep up there. It's just visit the government Social Security estimate or from my side or is Nancy Pelosi calls it. The dreamers estimate there can hit it in it that's pretty good. Does senator Tim Scott really use the term black and brown wow what happened to him. I really didn't expect him to use identity politics like that raw I don't know the context. Also adding here I thought he was conservative and he is. There's nothing wrong with referring to the color your skin. And I don't think this is too. The I don't wanna put words in Tim's Scott's mouth but I don't think he's one of those people would find his primary. Identity fair. On the airplane issue Vince you can learn to fly at a flight simulator you can download on the PC. Maybe this is what this guy did. It's just now tuning yen was watching the final panthers' training camp practice excited to. Tony eighteenth season hash tag keep pounding. On the plane being air traffic control to keep you from taking off they can't keep your for landing either. What goes up will come down all they can do is clear the runways. Also this Simon think I have no intention of landing that plane it seemed like cues contemplating suicide. Before he even took the plane and a person saying you wanted to brought with them playing yet. I find it extremely scary it's so easy to steal a plane like that just imagine fewer terrorists the damage they could have been done. Yet where's all the security. Yeah I mean to call the security you have to go through to get on the plane as a passenger. And yet. You can get on the plane. As a pilot to. And takeoff and dormitory right it's. Yes I'm sure there's a lot of examination going on as there should be. So this one is it repeated. More of your calls your texts. As we continue to broadcast. Graphic. I don't look at our text line in the a final stretch of the broadcast today. My goodness I'm looking at this story we'll probably talk about small hole about socialism. My goodness. God help us. Just an absolutely bizarre. What else can I say about this. Any case on the text line. I don't complain was in how anger fuel tanks are usually topped off to reduce flammable fuel vapors inciting anger and H two won't fuel he was low on fuel. Men simple fix the stolen plane situation. And a username and take off co generated by the tower. We cannot even access our own bank account without throws. And this one I'm sure being facetious I think all airplane should be banned there just like guns. We can't be trusted they've leapt into action the minute you turn your back on them. And do terrible things to people I bring the FAA and the NRA. And what he. Just the the guy was still the aircraft just like be done debate people will be calling for banning the tools in this case. Flight simulator programs. Half I could see this never mind the thousands of normal people who enjoy them it would never go do something destructive with a misplaced blame on the tools. Rather then where it belongs you're probably right. You don't all of that playing the taxpayers deuce side your ego is writing checks your body can't cash. Johnny is laughing because he knows who that line came from. Where is that there are days of thunder who this person saying it's a gun not gun there. Another person here like to know about Peter struck easy going to lose his security clearance. We do not know. His personal like to know isn't against the law to have sexual relations with a subordinate I don't know if this is a subordinate I'd thought this was a just a regular coworker that he was texting Wes. Tiger Woods come back he's still a scumbag. Who drops the F bomb in front of children out on the course. How bright. Vincent investigation proves struck did not act with political bias he was fired for having an opinion sad. Also on Tiger Woods in spite of Tiger Woods' personal shortcomings I've always liked him thought he was genuinely nice guy who did. Good charitable work I'm happy form. Another person saying here about structure. I love he was tired but I saw that smug look on his face when he spoke of love ms. country couldn't help but wonder. Proves the same love and respect he had for his wife hole ouch. Boy that's brutal. Tiger Woods is a racist. Thank you supposed to be above all because he's black go back and listen to some of his quotes I will be crashes and burns again wow. Vince you hope it's come back for tiger why don't you condemn him. How could you condemn trump on a daily basis to give tiger cats. Isn't tiger morally corrupt as he humbled himself and ask for forgiveness. I thought fast would someone has to do to get back in your gracious I must be wrong. And I give you hints here. Hunger. In great golf professional. He's not president of the United States. And he's not commenting about anybody else by the way. Leading people. To turn on other people. That's helped. Let's see here other tax year that. We may get to I have a yacht. Simple solution to people from jumping onto an aircraft and taking off don't leave the keys in the ignition. I thought but it's me mission that's you're way to describe it have you ever watched the show airplane re pro. I'm willing to bet the guy stole that plane has watched that show yes I watched that show that was pretty incredible. You know this guy he goes and then you know he tracks down airplanes. That the banks foreclosed on. And he goes and he picks them up. Got a it was a really cool show really cool. Another person here how many about Aretha Franklin. Recent frankly in the hospital and feeling health should make us all said she's in the central the American musical soul is Elvis or Michael Jackson I think we all would agree with that. On this plane story we have our friend Willy. Who's come back. From the I don't know where he's come back from bodies back. RA Willie what are your comments year. And it prudent to myself well listen I know how to solve a problem. You know that would never built by any children so they got too much area again traveling. Why don't want people going to as in that answer probably. Oh my goodness there are some people would say that's a racial comment there. We're noted I'm lately. I love everybody and I am in agreement and I got back anyway. I know you do hey good to hear from you. Well he is Hispanic have a way in case she did you know. I missed that I would print this out they're just too. Get rid of any any mystery that may be up. Lingering. Leather texture here on the Tiger Woods thing I think would probably has humbled himself ask God's forgiveness we'd still be a failure. Oh we are comes from god and hard work. Yet there's certainly a lot of that. You know and I think you know this. I'd at least most people I think hope that some people were able to come back. And find a path to redemption because don't we all need that in some form. So we all leave debt. Everybody has. Either redemption story the potential for redemption story and I think that's very very important. We will continue to follow all of the developing news. And bring it to you right here and yes we do everything we can't try to promote some things that are positive that are encouraging. We will scour. The news sources. And hopefully we can lead off with something positive and encouraging in the very least on tomorrow's broadcast. I probably issued that. In the meantime halves of the great big god bless you take care. This is still Vince Coakley radio program.
