S so my hope My prayer is that this will dissuade any of the anybody who's planning any violence on this upcoming Wednesday to hold off and to run away. It's morning. Talk with Martha's all or 775352911 Eun, also Texas that that number and we got a couple of phone calls holding that we're gonna get to But before we do that out, and well, welcome, Alleghenies with me today. Thank you so much. You know, I am offended by how The story is being covered about vetting the National Guard and my dad was a New Jersey National Guard he served proudly in World War two was called up was a POW. And they pay presentation of this vetting as being something new. Is disingenuous. And I'm offended by that. I checked with the general from the National Guard last night because I was saying I've been in those security bubbles before they vet everybody. Okay, so vetting someone who's going to be that close to the president. United States is a common practice by the Secret Service, and I think it's disingenuous by media. To be covering it as if it's something new. Yeah, but I'll go back to what Greg Abbott said in Texas last night that you know he is offended that they're checking out these National Guardsmen and I'm not saying I agree. But at the same time check vetting them when they are pledged. They take the oath of office. If you will to protect and defend this country, which I believe goes further into the Into this mix, then the Democrats are are allowing. I have no problem with the vetting. I have a problem with singling out the National Guard as somehow needing more, and that's what I'm offended by. Let's go to the phones and talk to Jo in L A. J. Hey, Joe, how you doing? Great show is always I just want to mention that I've got a leadership classic pose barbecue. I've got 79 young people who I think could be President.

But he spent a great thing You know it really in fires me up to talk to these great young people, because when I was that age Didn't all I was interested in was being present student body Georgia taking pretty girls. But these kids know a lot more than I did. And so I'm very encouraged by young leaders and boy, we need to train him because You know what's going on today and I just wanted to encourage you and you and my Sal to try to find somebody in games. We've got a lot of fine leaders over there. I like CIA leadership class and every community in America. Because so many of these young people don't understand free, enterprising capitalism and the dangers of socialism and it would be wonderful toe have in every in every community in America leadership class of of outstanding young people, and I just wanted to throw that out.
