Mike Gallagher Celebrates Early Birthday in Las Vegas

"But after the long weekend I had in Las Vegas, Las Vegas to sort of celebrate my birthday with some dear Friends of mine. A little early birthday by a couple of days. And let's not talk about my birthday. I hate my birthday. I hate birthdays in general. I get in trouble because I forget my Friends. I forget my family. To me, I remember years ago, Eric Hansen, who's been my loyal operations manager for over two decades, used to take his birthday off. And I thought that was the craziest thing how anybody would take a day off for their birthday as an adult. Now if you're 14, I don't know, but people take birthdays very seriously. I dread them because it is a reminder of my grim march to the grave. I don't feel almost 62. Some days I feel 80, some days I feel 29. So good friends of mine, peg and Joey Hudson said, let's go to Vegas. We'll see Lionel Richie. And while we're there, let's carry Underwood. She was great Friday night, Lionel Richie, not so much because he canceled as we showed up to see his performance, which is something that would have been like a bucket list. Can you imagine seeing Lionel Richie in concert? He had a bad back. I literally said to the guy blocking the entrance when being told that Lionel Richie had a bad back, what? He can't sing with a bad back. What's in his back four to sing? I did shows in a hurt with a hernia. I did radio shows in my bed. I didn't say all that to him, but you know me. I'm selfish, and I'm impatient. And I'm instant gratification, and I wanted to see Lionel Richie, but we still had a great weekend, stayed at the Trump international hotel, great story from the Trump hotel, places packed, beautiful hotel, the Trump store, they can't keep Trump merchandise on the shelves. The lady told me as soon as they ship it in in the morning, it's gone by the end of the day. I would t-shirts, baseball caps, Trump golf balls, Trump paperweights, and people, you know, I'm sorry. Americans love the guy. And Americans are ready for a return to normalcy. Not just politically, but I've got to address this. I got to address how different Vegas is from so many other places, New Yorkers would faint. At how people in Las Vegas behave.

The counter position to what congressman Timmons said this morning on the radio with my pal Joey Hudson on 94 5, the answer, the counter to that came from an MMA fighter named Bryce Mitchell. Now, I don't know much about him at the MMA sport or that whole genre. I know that Bryce Mitchell's nickname is thug nasty.

Joey Hudson Amazed by High Prices of Cars Right Now

"A premium right now. Right before the end of the year, I traded in my 2012 Chevy Silverado. I thought it was about time to get a new one. I was amazed at the price of new cars if you could find one. So I tried it in my 2012, which looking back on it, maybe I should have kept it. I had just over a 100,000 miles on it, I thought, well, this is a good time to trade. And I was just sickened. When I went online and I saw the price that they had listed, my used car app. It was within a $1000. Of what I paid for it. In early 2013, again, as 2012 model, I bought it in early 2013. It literally, as a used vehicle with a 108,000 miles on it, was within a $1000 of what I paid for it. I usually vehicle. That was a nice one. It was a nice truck.

"Them. And Joey Hudson did a great job Friday filling in. Thank you, Joey. Everybody loves Joey Hudson. I get so tired. Always so nice, Mike. He's so polite and you're so mean. He is a great guy and he's a dear friend and a lot of our friends call us Batman and Robin. He's my business manager. He's my absolute confidant and adviser and just I've got quite a history with him. In fact, I've shared this with you before, but I don't mind repeating it that a couple of weeks before my Denise passed away. She said to him, when this happens, my guy's going to need somebody to help him. He has never balanced a checkbook. He's going to be in a cardboard box, and so all those years ago, because Joey was there that whole process with hospice and the funeral home and everything. I don't know what I would have done without Joey. That's the kind of friend he is. And my Denise adored him. I mean, we just love Joey and peg Hudson and on the subject of the hudsons for just a moment. Peg Hudson has been in my life with Joey for about. I was trying to figure this out nearly 30 years. And they have been with me through thick and through thin.

Mike Is Feeling Much Better After Mild Case of Covid

"An unscheduled time off due to COVID, we decided to set up a little bit of a rig in my bedroom where I remain in quarantine feeling like a million bucks, frankly, after the first couple of days of some mild symptoms, I'm feeling a 100% and so team Gallagher graciously invited Gallagher back to the Gallagher show and helping me out today is my dear friend and business manager and tremendously popular morning host in the upstate of South Carolina on 94 5 the answer W GTK. It's the one and only Joey Hudson, so it's a bit of the mic and Joey show. You know, Joey, you every one of your shows by saying God's got this, God's in control. Sometimes when you think you have plans and you make plans to celebrate something like Christmas, sometimes God says, nope, I've got a different idea. Well, and things can change quickly and you're right. Look, you had no idea a week ago that you're going to be asking me to step in, you'll recall, you started texting me Wednesday night saying you had a high fever and you weren't feeling good and the next morning I'm sitting in my barn, which we expected to be here in Greenville to finish up the last week in Annie. And you were home in quarantine. It's bizarre because this is happening real rapidly and in many ways this is deja vu all over again, as you said earlier, but on the other hand, it feels different this time. It feels like more and more people are getting COVID. Almost everybody that I've heard of has had the same experience that I've had mild symptoms, so there's two things I think is the big takeaway as we enter Christmas Joey. Number one, not be conquered by fear because chances are you're going to have a very mild time of it like I did. And number two have a plan. You know, don't get caught becoming positive and realizing you have COVID and you don't have anything in place because frankly, for me, the first thing I thought of was, how do I get to a Regeneron treatment center, which I did the day after?

We're sorry for the inconvenience, however, we are, we have a staffing shortage, so we're unable to serve you today. Have a nice day. And it wasn't a recording. He was at the booth. He was in the window there. Shooing people away. 'cause they can't get enough people to work at the Wendy's on pleasantburg in Greenville South Carolina on a Sunday afternoon. Now, a lot of homeless people in the streets of New York there's a lot of people trying to figure out how to feed their families. You think there might be somebody interested in working at Wendy's on a Sunday afternoon? Wonder what Wendy's pays. People can't find work? I mean, employees can't find employer, employers can find employees. People can find work. It's right there. They can't even flip a burger. On a Wendy's on a Wendy at a Wendy's on a Sunday afternoon. They don't have enough people. And I just can't get this out of my head. So think about this. They're paying a guy to tell the people driving in the because Wendy's doesn't have shit down service. My pal Joey Hudson reminded me that most of these fast food chains still don't let you sit down. Incidentally, what's up with that? Why are all these chains refusing to let people go in and sit down and have a meal? Is this pandemic ever going to end for corporate America?

She's gotten from the green will county school district. Joining me for few minutes morning, Jamie. Rathburne, good morning. How are you? Good morning, I've been better. So. So this house like you have had better days. So MS rathburne, walk me through this, obviously, your son has had some issues there 'em. Bullying really is. That's a big issue in school these days, right? I think it is. I wanna losing kids less than right, the suicide. And it all boils down to go lee-ing. These kids aren't having the mental health they need to be able to deal with these difficult life situations that they come across. And if we don't provide the them the tools that they need now how do we expect them to function at nineteen and twenty nine in the real world? So your son was having some issues there were some kids bullying him at school. All year. And had you talk with teachers and administrators about this. Yes, we had several emails. I had several meetings, I had emailed, the assistant superintendent and anytime I had asked the superintendent about how to grow it at filing a formal an administrative complaint. The conversation got pushed to another topic another part of the conversation. And because you know, they're you know, there's been going on for long. So I'm emotional. And I don't bring it back to that point until I still yet to find out how to go about doing that. I still yet to find out and they're like, oh, we give you this information at the beginning of year. I'm like that's a long time ago. Do you know how much paper I have and just one year? You know what I mean? Full again, and how much time could it take for them to give it to you again? I if you need. So you so you weren't getting a response from the teachers the administrators they responded, but I don't feel as though they responded appropriately to nor it because they were the kids, we're trying to get a reaction out of him. And that's all s hard to do sometimes as a kid. I mean you can't just ignore boys. All right. So this was happening. You weren't getting the response that you felt like you needed. They weren't doing anything about it. So you decided to go over to the school this morning, and you went to his class and take it from there. Yeah. I mean, I decided to go to school and give them a piece of my mind, basically, and it wasn't right. And I don't know that I don't know what I could have done differently to get the issues in the spotlight because my son asked for help he went unhurt, nobody listens. Nobody seems to care when I politely asked followed all the rules and gave them all the sport support that they needed to be able to do their job in whatever capacity that they needed to I felt. And so I was just being told what I wanted to hear to get me out the door, and my son will come home the same day, and there would be more issues. I get wasn't a dress and the breaking point for me was when I told the principal expected, her at my exact words were expect you to handle this officially and effectively, or I'm going to be forced to file an administrative complaint on the hills meal, even the office from saying that they turned around. And retaliated what I felt like their tally Gatien all my child because all year long. They didn't do nothing to protect him. And now they want to single him out. The teacher follows them all day. They only allow him to play on certain equipment on the playground. You know, he has to say what the teacher at lunch, and then they tell him that the teacher is going to be with him for the rest of the year since he's an instigator. This is wrong. Top of that. The secretary went and posted she violated the child Privacy Act oppose impersonal information on Facebook about my child, and then when she was called L on it. The lead it, you don't think they're gonna try to cover that up. Coursing are. I'm not asking for jobs. I'm just asking them to do what I did you wrong apologize and work with me on funding better solution for all of these children.

That's a big issue in school these days, right? I think it is. I wanna losing kids less than right, the suicide. And it all boils down to go lee-ing. These kids aren't having the mental health they need to be able to deal with these difficult life situations that they come across. And if we don't provide the them the tools that they need now how do we expect them to function at nineteen and twenty nine in the real world? So your son was having some issues there were some kids bullying him at school. All year. And had you talk with teachers and administrators about this. Yes, we had several emails. I had several meetings, I had emailed, the assistant superintendent and anytime I had asked the superintendent about how to grow it at filing a formal an administrative complaint. The conversation got pushed to another topic another part of the conversation. And because you know, they're you know, there's been going on for long. So I'm emotional. And I don't bring it back to that point until I still yet to find out how to go about doing that. I still yet to find out and they're like, oh, we give you this information at the beginning of year. I'm like that's a long time ago. Do you know how much paper I have and just one year? You know what I mean? Full again, and how much time could it take for them to give it to you again? I if you need. So you so you weren't getting a response from the teachers the administrators they responded, but I don't feel as though they responded appropriately to nor it because they were the kids, we're trying to get a reaction out of him. And that's all s hard to do sometimes as a kid. I mean you can't just ignore boys. All right. So this was happening. You weren't getting the response that you felt like you needed. They weren't doing anything about it. So you decided to go over to the school this morning, and you went to his class and take it from there. Yeah. I mean, I decided to go to school and give them a piece of my mind, basically, and it wasn't right. And I don't know that I don't know what I could have done differently to get the issues in the spotlight because my son asked for help he went unhurt, nobody listens. Nobody seems to care when I politely asked followed all the rules and gave them all the sport support that they needed to be able to do their job in whatever capacity that they needed to I felt. And so I was just being told what I wanted to hear to get me out the door, and my son will come home the same day, and there would be more issues. I get wasn't a dress and the breaking point for me was when I told the principal expected, her at my exact words were expect you to handle this officially and effectively, or I'm going to be forced to file an administrative complaint on the hills meal, even the office from saying that they turned around. And retaliated what I felt like their tally Gatien all my child because all year long. They didn't do nothing to protect him. And now they want to single him out. The teacher follows them all day. They only allow him to play on certain equipment on the playground. You know, he has to say what the teacher at lunch, and then they tell him that the teacher is going to be with him for the rest of the year since he's an instigator. This is wrong. Top of that. The secretary went and posted she violated the child Privacy Act oppose impersonal information on Facebook about my child, and then when she was called L on it. The lead it, you don't think they're gonna try to cover that up. Coursing are. I'm not asking for jobs. I'm just asking them to do what I did you wrong apologize and work with me on funding better solution for all of these children.

"Join us for a few minutes this morning on the morning answer. Welcome in how are you, sir? Joey, thank you so much for taking the time. I really do appreciate it. We'll we'll thank you, because I want to be sure that our listeners understand this up is kind of early for you. You're, you're out on the west coast. And this is live folks, when, when I asked Larry, to come on for a few minutes, I said, look, we can record this and he wanted no part of this because he wanted all of you in upstate, South Carolina, western North Carolina and northeast Georgia to know how important this is to him. Thank you for waking up early. Oh, it's my pleasure really in a minute, we're going to talk about your book a lot like me a father and son's journey to reconciliation. But before we go there, just quickly, you wrote an article week or so ago, titled Democrats twenty twenty the grievance party you wrote in 'em reading from it by density, politics. Democrats. Really mean grievances? The party leaders pushed an active that blacks Hispanics gaze at, Sandra are victims whether do inequality or sexism, racism or other ISM. Tell us about that. What what did you mean by that layer? The Democratic Party. It really isn't a collection of values and collection of principles, this question of people that are angry this, that, or the other that believe that the forces conspire against them, and hold them back or principal example, is this, I that the Obama pushed every single year that women make seventy seven cents or eighty cents depending upon the survey on the dollar compared to men for doing the very same work. Joey, if that were true, if you're an employer and you have a bunch of men, and you have a bunch of women willing to work for less money, you can pay them less and there'll be equally productive. You would fire all the men hire women and pocket the difference, yet, this is a lie that the Democrats keep pedalling another one is that blacks are subjected to institutional racism, it is simply not true. The Washington Post looked at about a thousand people who were killed by the police in the recent year, toured and fifty of them. We're, we're, we're, we're black five hundred of them were white there. About fourteen or fifteen black men, who were unarmed were killed by the police. And by the way, unarmed does not mean not dangerous. Michael Brown was not armed but he was dangerous. His DNA was found on the officers good. But there were twenty one on armed whites who were killed I defy your audience to name one. And that's my point if a black person gets killed, especially by a white cop incomes Anderson, Cooper income, banjos, incomes, Chris Cuomo. But if a, a black guy gets killed by another black guy in, in, in Chicago as happened over this last weekend. I think we're fifty two people shot in Chicago about five or six killed no body cares. It is simply not true that blacks are under seized, but the Democrats have convinced blacks at their victims, which is why they're now pandering and talking about reparations. So the Democrats are a collection of people that are that are aggrieved about this about that, about the other as opposed to the Republican party that believes in the principle of hard, work, accountability, and personal responsibility. Since you mentioned that I love to watch Prager you videos in the happened to catch one of you recently with Candace Owens, and you talked about the myth of police brutality and black men. And you talked about you, you said that these black men are more likely to be hit by lightning. That's right. I think when recent year there were three hundred people that were injured by lightening and lightning. Of course, there's not injured you demographically equally, but assuming it did blacks are black men are about roughly three percent or so of this population. That means aroun- around twenty one black men would be injured by lightening in any given ears. So you're more likely to be injured by lightning than to be an unarmed black man killed by the police. It is a lie. And in fact, a young black man is seven or eight times more likely to be murdered than a young, white man, and the young black man will more likely be murdered by another young black man. So that's what's going on here. And the problem is the lack of fathers in the home Joey around seventy percent. The black kids today are raised are brought into the world without a father and forget, about Larry elder, and all the other conservatives talk about what Brock Obama said about a kid raised about a without a father, Obama said, a kid raving on the father is five-time, like it'd be poor nine times more likely to drop at school twenty times more likely to end up in jail. We ought to be talking about what's happened to the American family in general, was happened to the black family in particular talk about your book, Larry with me this morning. Larry elder, his book a lot like Mia father and son's journey reconciliation layer. You write a hated Mahthir really, really hated them. I hated working for him. And I hated being around him. A hated it when he walked through the front door at home, and we feared him from the moment. He pulled up in front of the house in his car while the these are pretty strong words about someone's that. Well, they are Joey, and I've got two brothers and believe me, we all felt the same way, the only reason I thought my dad wasn't a criminal because my mom. Married him. And I love my mom. And I knew that, that must be something redeeming in him. Otherwise, she wouldn't have married him, but aside from that I did not like him. He would come home. He would whip us with the belt. That was his job. My dad would come in the house, and my mother would lay out all the things and brothers, not hit done wrong, and my dad will get the belt and you'd wail against us for this that and the other and I thought it was excessive now, fast forward, I started working for him. He started little cafe. I hate it working for him because when things go wrong, he would blow up enjoy you're talking about a little diner here. So people could hear your old man, yell at you. And I it was embarrassing now in fifteen years old. I love to tell your audience. I decided that I'm going to next time I'd had yells. It'd be I'm going to say see here, pal. You in me, Manoa model. Let's have a talk about this, but I was afraid of my father. So my act of defiance was simply to walk out of the restaurant, it was a full restaurant. My dad yelled at me. I walked out no one ever defied. My father liked that he came home. He was furious. He said, why did you leave? And I said for the first time in an act with a science to my father. I got sick and tired of the way you spoke to me. My dad recently was pocket. Pull out the ten dollars a day that he paid me bald it up. Threw it at me as I lay on my bed walked out of the bedroom, and my dad, and I did not speak to each other Joey for ten years. When I say didn't speak to each other. I don't mean how about those Rams. Do you think it's going to rain? I mean nothing. Avoid him because he worked late. I graduated from high school. Then I went to college in the east coast law school in the mid west, and I would come home, of course, to visit my parents, but I would make sure that whenever was in the house, dad wasn't there. This went on for ten years now I'm twenty five years old. I just got a major job with a major law firm in Cleveland, Ohio, I passed the California bar, the Ohio bar, I should be living large, but I can't sleep and I know it has something to do with my dad, not that I ever thought we'd be friends, but I call my secretary and I said, cancel. All my appointments. I'm flying to LA going to be there for a day or two and I'm gonna come right back. I didn't tell my parents, I was coming because I want my dad to prepare for this meeting that walk into the restaurant. My dad was surprised to see me. Of course. I had two big bags. He put your back in the back. Larry's no dad, I'm gonna be here five or ten minutes. I wanna tell you something, he said, okay, wait till we close. So I set for an hour and I sit now. Larry don't tee off on the man when he sits down just tell them a few things. He's gonna call you, an ungrateful son. You can call them and SOB. At least maybe you'll be able to. Sleep. So the man said down, Joey, and I teed off for half hour, I told him everything he ever did every slight every spanking, everything after half hour, I was out of ammo. And my dad looked at me, and he said, is that it? You did speak to me for ten years because of that. And I said, yeah. He's let me tell you about my father. Now, I gotta polish Joey, I knew nothing about my dad life, other than I made his mom. Once I knew he had no brothers and sisters. I knew he had no relatives because we never got any gifts outside of that. I knew nothing about it and didn't care. I didn't even like it to my dad told me about his life over an eight hour period of time as we sat there and these two stools, I eight hours for the first time I saw my father cry. He said, Larry, you know, your last name elder, I said, yeah, he said, that's not my father's name. I said, what, what is your father's name? He said, I have no idea. You never met him never met my biological. Father, whose elder elder, was some man was in my life, the longest maybe four years alcoholic who physically abusive to me and to my mother, and when I was thirteen years old. I came home and I started quarreling with my mom's then boyfriend elder was long gone. My mom sided with the boyfriend. Threw me out of the house pet said, nah. Never to return. Thirteen year old black boy, Jim crow south Athens, Georgia, at the beginning of the great depression, never to return home. I said, what did you do that? I walked down the street. I got any job. I could ultimately I got a job as a Pullman porter in the trains. He was able to travel all around the country, which was I opening for a black boy from the south and came to L A one time and thought it was sunny. People seem less less racist, more friendly, and my dad made a mental note. Maybe I relocate to LA someday. Pearl Harbor my dad joined the marines. I said dad, why the marines he said two reasons they go with the accident is that's what I wanted and second. I love those uniforms became a marine stationed on Quam. The bomb fell my dad returned to the south Chattanooga, where he met, and married, my mom to get him a job as a cook. My dad was a staff sergeant in the marines, he cooked for all the black soldiers so he can cook for e make anything. He can look at a cake tell you what a Joey.

Daniel Nathaniel welcome in me on. On you. To someone Mike Gallagher, Jeb Brian. Welcome in welcome Raisman thankful. Let me be on your show and Mike big fan. Get caught up on what happened while you were sleeping with breaking news, weather, and traffic. Welcome to the morning answer with Joey hunted. A ninety four five theater. Eight seven seven two three five nine four zero five your call your opinion. Your insight on this Thursday morning additioning the morning answer. Hope you'll join the conversation your comments or welcome on the big rock Tech's LAN as well. Kim Miller came to Greenville in the fall of two thousand and fourteen to become Greenville's twenty-six police chief he came via Charlotte Mecklenburg in Greensboro, North Carolina, and is really known for community policing. He believes that the community should be Imbaba. He was quoted in the Greenwood news that first week on the job is saying my role in managing the police department is making sure we're meeting the needs of the community were part of a community not apart from them. And chief welcome in your truly. I believe that you blew that believe that that your men and women need to be out on the streets and becoming a part of the community in which they serve it will. Thank you Joey for having me on your program. I I do believe that. And I believe also that the safest communities are the ones where police and community are working together to ensure that everybody is safe that we're all taking our part in ensuring that we're not gonna be victimized. And that our neighbors won't be victimized. So working you have to work in collaboration with the community and an number of service providers and businesses throughout our community do that. I'm glad to say in the coming weeks. We're going to be visited by the teeth. We're calling it. We're gonna call it a minute with Miller. But then we realized that there's not a such thing as just a minute with Miller. It's going to be minutes with a Meller because we we have lots to talk about chief. And we we got a little intro here for you. I'm police chief can. You'll be checking in weekly with chief Miller. So let's just jump in here. Like so many areas. One of the things that we're seeing here in the upstate and, unfortunately, it's one of the things at the upstate lease estate in as I understand is the impact of Opio at the opioid crisis. We hear a lot about this. But give us a thirty thousand foot view of what the opioid crisis looks like here in in Greenville. And what that means. Yeah. So Jerry, we we struggle between our county and the coastal counties with with the opioid crisis mostly for South Carolina and here in the upstate. We have a dubious distinction of actually having the most opiate overdose reversals in the state. We are the most populous county, and we have the most reversals and not the highest overdose fatal rate or. Metality rate for the state because we are quipped EMS fire personnel and police and sheriff's personnel are quipped with a life saving drug naloxone. And so we've administered that seven hundred ten times actually, more than seven hundred ten times between the three first responders to to really reverse the effects and safe people. And we have in fact, saved many many people from from dying from overdose here in in Greenville county now that seven hundred plus over what period of time is that's just that's just twenty eighteen while. Yeah. Well, his twenty eighteen when you look at this and just at the national level in two thousand sixteen there were sixty two thousand four hundred ninety seven fatal overdose related to opioids heroin and fennel and largely fennel in two thousand seventeen that increased to seventy thousand two hundred thirty seven so we're still on the upswing with his. Pedantic? And if you put that in comparison anything put it an all Vietnam, they were fifty eight thousand two hundred twenty casualties. And so in two years alone. We've more than doubled. The casualty rate the ten plus years of Vietnam war. So so what what's the answer? So there are you know, there are a lot of there are a lot of things we can do. But I will tell you that we need to change behavior. And that behavior begins from the far pharmaceutical companies through our physicians that are prescribing how we manage prescriptions, but we have to focus and this what we do in policing. When we look at problems that are affecting our community. We we look at prevention intervention and enforcement a lot of folks, you know, enforcement is kind of our lane, but we find ourselves in in into the prevention and intervention partnerships because they're so important to to our communities because if all we do is enforcement, we basically criminalize most behavior and and criminalize our communities. Yesterday. We had an interfaith group tackle and issued that is taken the forefront in in our state legislature compassionate Care Act. And I gotta tell you chief. I've been surprised at the reaction that that I received a from a lot of different people around the community with with the whole issue of marijuana. And of course, the compassionate Care Act a tackles medical marijuana. We're not talking about recreational use here in South Carolina yet. But but groups who have gone down this path in other states have said that will you get medical marijuana. Then recreational follows close behind we won't get into that discussion today. But but I was surprised at an interfaith group of supporters yesterday in in the UK in Columbia rabbi, Eric Malo addressed a small crowd there in the statehouse rotunda saying it can lift up those in pain, it can lift up those who are suffering provide them the relief. They need other pastors offered their support. Port of medical marijuana. This is something that that I'm totally opposed to and a while back you in a news conference. You had this to say all across our great state wonder about the position of their police chiefs with regard to legalizing so called medical marijuana. Unlike our elected representatives as appointed officials we are unable to take positions on legislation that our city councils have not otherwise formally adopted. And so our voices can really only be heard through our association and the association that unites us, but let me be clear there are no police chiefs. No police chiefs in South Carolina who support this legislation keeps him Kim Miller of quickly. And and we have about a minute left. Here talk with us about law enforcement position all medical marijuana. So medical marijuana has. Has has been introduced in a number of states, and that is often the battlecry for the legislators pushing that it's been it's been done. Elsewhere. So why not here, we are certainly compassionate toward people who are enduring chronic pain, chronic illness. But there are other ways to treat it medical marijuana is is actually more intense oftentimes has more THC level than than your the stuff. You buy on the street, and you can pay more money for more intensity. And so there is no prescription it's not prescribed by doctor. It's not distributed by pharmacy. It's not controlled and in any environment. So the more money you have the better the quality stuff you can buy and you can buy what you'd like, and you can self medicate. And that's always a problem. You know, people work they were. Around heavy machinery, they operate vehicles. And a you can be intoxicated on medical marijuana or marijuana. And we think that it it will create a an enormous public safety concern Greenville police chief Ken Miller. Thank you again for it goes by fast, doesn't it? It does Tom TOMS up. You know, sound nice. No sound. So I'm looking or a thirty minutes. Thank you. You're going to be back with us again next week. And again, this is something we're gonna be doing over the next few weeks talking about issues that we're facing here in the upstate and especially law enforcement chief preset you being here this morning, and we'll get back to more of your phone calls and your comments on the big rock Tech's on eight seven seven two three five nine four zero five.

What what does Jerry Nadler think he's going to accomplish by sending out an and his truly it is a fishing an expedited and a wide net. He has cast. It seems that they wanna make this next election cycle about investigations and investigations. And I think that's not a bad thing for our prospects in twenty twenty I think that the president's gonna keep working hard. And we're going to do our best to get this country on track. And let them talk about degree new deal and socialism and Medicare for all and how to bankrupt our country. And I I like I like that that conversation. I know how ends up we all know how that ends. And you're right. This is probably good news is just a little weary. You know, we've been through almost two years now of Robert Mueller's special counsel investigation. I think it's we're gonna find that he found nothing. And and so now we were under starting another investigation here, and he just kinda wears you down a bit. But but you're right. I mean from pure political standpoint and going into the twenty twenty elections congressman, you know, it's probably good. For us because the American people just truly see who the Democrats are. That's exactly right and Robert baller. Didn't find it with all of the resources. He had congress definitely not going to either. So, and you know, I think it's important. Remember the mothers investigation yielded, nothing. They were number of indictments and guilty plea, but they were completely separate and apart from the purpose of the investigation which was to determine if there was collusion with the Russian government, which was not a good point. Good reminder that all of the the indictments had nothing to do with the purpose of the investigation. Congressman Tim also your house colleagues the Democrats in the house drafting a resolution condemning anti-semitism and they plan to introduce it on the floor. We understand later in the week over some controversial comments by freshman, Representative Ilhan O'Meara, what's what's the word on Capitol Hill. This. Well, they're just a number of freshmen that loved to talk as much as possible. And I've taken that produce that I'm gonna learn the procedures of people and the policies before open my mouth, and I've been reminded often why I've taken that approach and thank you for doing that. Because I listened to some of the things that some of the your freshman colleagues say I sit here, and I scratch my head, and I think truly did your the ger mama and daddy not teach you to sit back and listen before you speak. Well, between Ilhan, Omar, Rashid, Salib and. One of my personal favorites. A oh, see they really are the gift the keeps on giving that is for sure. And as you said congressman William Timmins, that's just has to be good news for before the Ribble Republicans going into twenty twenty. Yesterday. Congressman William Timmins represented the fourth district. We always appreciate you checking in on Tuesdays with Timmons, and you know, just be safe up there. And thanks for what you're doing.

"Sir. Back to the morning answer with Joey Hudson ninety four five the answer. Visit our website ninety four five the answer dot com like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter at talk non four five. It's seven fifty on a Tuesday morning. And that means it's a Tuesday with Tim owns a congressman William tenants from the fourth district. Welcome in who's good to see you yesterday at lunch at first Monday was at not just a a wonderful meeting. Daily. Good morning. I thought Senator Graham did a fantastic job. I'm so excited. He's fully supporting the president on this upcoming battle. We're going to have over immigration in the wall. And I just think he's going to be a good day. And I'll tell you congressman what just really warmed my heart was to see the room. Literally packed. I mean, there was not an empty chair anywhere. It was just encouraging for me to see that many conservatives in the room supporting the Senator supporting us appointing our president, but engaged, you know, interested in what we're talking about. I saw it again last night. Congressman I went to the Greenville county GOP's meeting last night again in overflow room. Was just tells me that that people who are concerned about the direction our country's headed conservatives Republicans that that we're ready for this fight if we need to take it to that degree and to be involved in our process, and that has to be encouraging to you as well. It is Joey and I hate that. I couldn't be at the green accounting party last night. I had to come back to DC. I got a big day to day. But you're exactly right. We're fighting for the direction of our country. And the the left is really just got some crazy ideas. And I'm up here. Doing my best to keep them in check and try to get back on track. And that is a big job to keep them in check. Congressman the American people. Of course, it is a big day. A we'll be watching the present tonight the state of the union and we've been talking some this morning congressman about our expectations. What we expect the president to say did nine, and what that message is tell me what you expect to hear from the president tonight. I the going to give a very positive message of opportunity the direction of our country shifted drastically the last two years the tax reform Bill has created economic prosperity deregulation has well businesses to invest, and we just made a lot of big strive. But we really have come to an important. I it's a turning point. It is it is whether we're gonna fix emmigration system secure borders together or whether he's gonna go it alone. And I think he's going to speak of compromise. A coming together to to fix this problem in the way, it should be or allow him to just declare an emergency and secure the border unilaterally. I don't think we've got a choice anymore. I think it's either congress secure the border, the president is and I way we're going to order the talk with us in her gram yesterday. And he was on my show with me earlier this morning and any made. An interesting comment to me because you know, he said that actually the president does not have to declare an emergency that, you know, the center center Graham, seems to think that the president can just like he deploys troops down there that some money can be reallocated within the environment of the fence. And and just go that women what are your thoughts on that? Does the present even have to declare an emergency. Or can you just take some the money that's already there from the department of the fence? Has spent a lot more time with these legal issues than I have. But I do think that regardless of how done the president has the authority to do it. And I probably support in doing so should congress. Not. Yup. Now, do you think and I asked the center of the same question to, you know, we're talking about this deadline if every the fifteenth and the present said Sunday with Margaret Brennan that he was not taking off the table, you know, the idea possibly another government shutdown, but I don't know that there's going to be any different outcome. I don't know we can expect a different outcome because it appears the Democrats have have dug in. So what is the answer? Well, I think that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have dug in that. I think that they're blinded by their hatred of the president a lot of my freshman colleagues. And a lot of Democrats just think that this is off a bit confusing. Five point seven billion dollars for worship thirty is a drop in the bucket, and it is badly needed objectively. So if you look at it from a policy perspective, there's really not a lot of question as to what the right thing to do is going forward. But I just think there's the personalities involved that are making it really challenging to find common ground and find solution. But there is a group of legislators that have been meeting over the last week, and we'll continue to beat and hopefully they can find a path forward. But one way or the other we got us ajar border and congress just has to do its job. I think the American people are tired of congress not doing its job. And I'm doing everything I can to

No has been in operation for nearly four years located here in the upstate of South Carolina seen CMO produces competitively priced high quality manufactured. I'm with the goal of meeting. The needs for all types of shooters from competitive enthusiast who the big game hunters. In addition to Alamo in their twelve thousand square foot facility. They have the area's only indoor range, and I'm proud to say that CMO is one of our new local business sponsors hero ninety four five. The answer. You're going to be hearing a lot about this. Great local business located at eighty to eighty seven Ashra highway in bullet spring, South Carolina. I s Leslie Harold the owner to join us for few minutes today. Lesley's good to have you as part of the ninety four five the answer family. Let's talk for a minute about how you became the owner of CNC ammo to give you some prior history just to see and see Indo range was prior in law enforcement and started remanufacturing munition company from a house as a side job mas- working law enforcement. You have to have a side job to make. Meet. So that's what I chose. I enjoy to do. It is a hobby in the hobby eventually turned into a career for me. I'm so started that that business about six years ago manufacturing munition opened up a retail store and Calvin South Carolina. The Masek it location in Greer both small locations. Small clientele on the road a lot doing gun shows. Travel from Tampa, Florida to Indianapolis Indiana out west fours, Tulsa, Oklahoma house. There's lots of traveling build net business kind of building that brand. Then have the opportunity to purchase an indoor shooting range bomber formerly. It was called the fire in line in this business wasn't you know, a very popular business. So to speak not it was the only indoor range bomber county. And to this day is still the only indoor range soon allows presented with this opportunity and looked into it for the first time and in a past. They were asking too much for what they were offering and about six months later. I was reapproach the the purchase and they dramatic reduce the call. Of it. And so I looked at it in a wife about it and made a decision to purchase it and did so in October two thousand seventeen so mealy I changed the name because I wanted to customer base that the prior owner had to change dramatically, very small customer base. The places wasn't the most popular place to go to initiate be. You know, those nothing in Cherokee county, no indoor inches issues. Those lots of customers that could have that weren't there. So Millie changed the name and changed all aspects of that business in Jalan operating one from a training aspect from price in the biggest customer service. You know, when I bought the place in October two thousand seventeen was twenty seven members total when I bought the place currently and included members being a four member family, which I thought was extremely low after about a year in I think we had over three hundred memberships I think we're currently sitting about. Three hundred and fifty memberships that's not including members. That's actually memberships. Whether it's a member of Warner four, Leslie one of the objections. I sometimes hear from people as far as having guns in their home. As is they're they're just afraid of them. They're they're prayed to have them around for their kids to be in the house. You hear of accidents happening a people getting shot accidentally because someone just simply doesn't know how to handle our talk with us a minute about what you guys CNC ammo do is force firearm safety. I mean safety is huge when it comes to farms. You know, you just don't turn sixteen and start driving vehicle. You have training prior to doing so anything that he calls great bodily injury. You're going to have some type of training in respect to that. So in in our huge is mentioned earlier about accidents happen with arms will accidents going to happen. But most of these accidents can be prevented with proper training with the owner standing of of how to properly use a firearm, Leslie. Herro with me today, owner of CNC ammo in bolan springs and improv new part of the ninety four five the answer family here. You're gonna be hearing us talk a lot about CNC ammo have a wonderful facility over on Asheville highway and bullying springs, Leslie, Wednesdays a special day CNC talk with us about it. We'll every Wednesday is laid as at the SEC and no range, and that's all day embedded with that means is they get to to come in and shoot for free on Wednesday. And it's huge for that. Because if you imagine yourself and look at the whole Jon Rao of the gun industry is a very masculine dominated industry. So if you if you take a female in just enter them into that, they're gonna feel somewhat overwhelmed, basically, the same thing if we walk into a candle shop, we probably don't have as a man don't feel the most comfortable. So we want to invite him to come in to feel comfortable and just to make sure they're going to understand. We're we're going to you know, work within through the process. And better system. And whatever ways we can, you know, we offer training we offer individual training as well, as, you know, small training or advanced training as will. But when these females come in, you know, were, you know, lot of times were one on one with them if they've come into a range of never shot. We're not going to simply put them on the rains say have good day. We're going to spend that time with them with no extra charge in make sure they understand the safety aspects of shooting. So we tried to emphasize this on weekly basis on this day. Now, Liz Lucy, and c MO you guys produce custom ammo, tell us the significance of this, and why would someone need their own custom ammo? Yeah. We produced a solid. Copper self defense. Mccall the Essex p this is actually kind of two lines. It's one of the self defense in one as a hunting ground and we've done lots of testing through ballistic gelatin and lots of rounds or. Inferior for what the company advertises one thing. That's that's very important defense ammunition is the penetration. If you have over penetration in a self defense, ammo, you know, you're liable for that. But when you squeeze that trigger, you know, God forbid, you have to squeeze had triggered you're responsible for where that bullet goes word ends up. So if it exits the, you know, the perpetrator you're shooting and hit someone else you may eliminate a threat, but you just created a liability for yourself. Also, Leslie, another service that you provide is CW P classes, we all know the importance of having that CW people talk with us about the process, and and how and you have the classes we host a C P currently every other weekend, we cap it at fifteen we we have room to do more. I think it's important to have that good ratio for instructor to students, and what we offer our class is all inclusive class, it's sixty dollars for the class, which include your fingerprints, we feed you lunch today the class and afew complete that class. You actually get a one month range membership and the importance of this of the of the CW p is just because you have a firearm just because you know, how to use it doesn't mean you're legally able to carry this thing anywhere. You want to have in the UP gives you that allowance to care this thing in about ninety five percent of the places you go within the state at your allowed to Carrow care your weapon in Leslie Herrell with me today, owner of CNC ammo, just a wonderful new addition of the ninety four five the answer family here.

We take exception to the argument that marijuana is not a so-called gateway drug those who support legalization dismisses claim saying this not addictive joining me today in the ninety four five WGTK. Guests duty owes Tanya Fokin berry Tanya, you have a very personal story detail. Let's talk for a minute about your experience with marijuana. Well, might spirit says have my youngest son at the fifteen started these marijuana to relieve anxieties, I have three children that is my youngest my medal. One did a little bit of marijuana with some discipline. He kind of responded to that and kind of respected the fact that we didn't tolerate that in the house, and he he pretty much didn't do it. But the youngest one did not the older one didn't never mess with any of it to my daughter of didn't didn't never to marijuana and this stored when your youngest son was held. He was fifteen when he started smoking marijuana. And at what point did you realize that he was Spearman with marijuana? I knew that he was kind of having some issues at school. So we actually had gone because he had anxiety. He had gone to contras. So the first time he smoked marijuana. Don't think I knew that he had because he was trying to alleviate the anxiety. He was having after we started with the psychiatrists. He started with prescription medicine which helped a lot with the exiled. But it was a little after that that I noticed that. I would catch him smoke marijuana for parents who are listening today Tanya, and I don't have children so on don't completely understand, you know, a fifteen year old being able to buy marijuana. And that's disturbing to me that it's that readily available. How did he get this? How did he learn about smoking marijuana? I think all the kids in school really know about marijuana. They know where to get it. I think it's very easy to get. It's probably easier to get than. Anything else that there would be for them? Lots of kids sell it in school. So they can kind of get it for free. But I think they're I it was always kind of amazing to me. But that's what my kids would always say the easiest thing to get. Let's talk about Thomas story because a like so many stories that we hear started when he was fifteen and Cup having issues. He would get better and seem to have control over it. And then something would happen. And it would get worse. I mean, you guys tried different things. He he had rehab at one point, right? Yes. He dad when way had caught him smack marijuana. We would try to discipline him. And he wasn't when he first started math smoked with friends the concern that ended up being as he was smoking it by himself. He would he actually started smoking in our attic to me a while to kind of figure out that that's what was going on. He did have a job. He really liked his job. But he decided that you know, smoke marijuana. Your little too tired to work too. Much much more fun to be higher than it was actually go to work. So he ended up losing that job kind of quitting the job because that ended up being the bigger thing is to smoke marijuana. And then is understand. There was just a real really horrible event in Thomas live is friend. Yes. So after he went to rehab the first time I will kind of back up inside before we went to the rehab because we were drug testing him. He knew that he would test positive. So he started seeking out other things that would not show up on drug tests. So of course, the kids his peers would off obviously tell him what works. So there was a spice or k to that. He actually started doing which kind of led him to that first rehab when you come out of the first we happy was doing pretty good after he came home on one of his friends that he was pretty close with and also ball from had been arrested many times, you'll find that a lot of these kids have been arrested multiple times, but because of the age of eighteen. It's it's private, and there's no I don't wanna say consequences. But you know, there's really they can get some fines and do some community service. But this friend of his had just turned eighteen and had been arrested a couple of times, and he ended up committing suicide. And it was it was very devastating to Thomas very upsetting for him. And how old was Thomas with this point Thomas was seventeen who's getting ready to turn eighteen his senior year in high school? And this other child was a senior. So after this event, of course, I mean that's hard for anyone to deal with what happened next. Well, I think after he committed suicide suicide Thomas was trying to process that with some other friends, and they all decided to get together. And kind of remember this kid with a big bonfire, and they all just sat around and got high. When he left the bonfire. He was in a terrible car accident. He was going down east north street, and he had a friend in the carbs taken home and ran a red light. And a toy truck t-boned him the his car actually rolled about two or three times that he he called me and told

"Saturday January nineteenth this weekend. Pulse. I'm Joey Hudson. You host we gather at twelve noon, every Saturday talk about places to go people to see charitable vents and everything in between right here in the upstate of South Carolina, western North Carolina in northeast, Georgia. Glad to have you along today. Be sure visit our website ninety four five the answer dot com like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter at talk non four five. Joining me on the ninety four five WGTK guest line. Jeffrey case myth, author of some of my favorites. Rendezvous in Dallas is assoiation of John F Kennedy. The fighting little judge live in Tom's of George C Wallace the wizard of the saddle Nathan Bedford force and one of my really big favorites. Listen to me, the brief life and enduring legacy of buddy, Holly, Jeff good to have you has been way too long. It has always good to be with joy. Yeah. Appreciate it. Last year. You graciously sent me a copy of what at the time was your newest family affair the Rosenberg espionage case. Sorry, took me so long to to get around to reading it by gotta say once again, you nailed it. This is the story wasn't too familiar with it. But you brought it to life is the real life spy story. Tell us about what it really is a real life spy story. And this warned that really polarized America in the early nineteen fifty and as well as much of the world, and it really tore a family of Sunder, the testimony of a brother and a sister in law against I sister and brother went to prison and the sister was alternately executed people often forget that the fear of communism so-called, red minutes. So in the nineteen fifties. Was akin to the fears that we have today of radical Islamic terrorism. And you know, I it was some somewhat Tom Lee. I guess you could say, and again, this book was initially published a last January, but but the last couple of years we've had all this talk of of Russia and Russian collusion than the interference of a foreign government within our political system. You know back when this story unfolded is a similar atmosphere. All you know, we had government employees having to sign loyalty of we had the passage of the Smith act, which established criminal penalties for persons advocating, the overthrow the American government. We had congressional committees investigating any suspicion of communist activity, and as you mentioned this story has literally brother testifying against his sister who ultimately received the death penalty because of it when you were writing this in researching this did you have in mind that that the the factor drawl any. Correlations between some of the discussions that. We're having now on a possible Russian influence in our lectures, and our government when you wrote this. Yes. I think there's certain parallels. And of course, as you, and I both know history pins to repeat itself. The, you know, read minutes really began in August, nineteen forty nine the Soviet Union detonated their first atomic bomb. Well, ahead of the time train predicted by the American military intelligence experts and that really triggered the fear of Soviet subversion. And really precipitated the red scare and it also occurred during the backdrop of the Korean war when communist North Korea invaded democratic South Korea. Ultimately, nearly two million people were killed in that war and bleeding thirty six thousand Americans. So the climate was very right for perhaps fear trumping reason during the red scare. Now, you point out that the Rosenbergs were the only defendants who were sentenced to death one. You think that was the case? Well, I think that the federal government, namely, the Justice department wanted to send a message to anyone who potentially might have been a spy for the Soviet Union or Wisconsin inviting becoming a spy for the union. You know, the Rosenbergs were the only two people ever executed for espionage at a time. When the United States was not at war and Ethel Rosenberg was only the second woman in history to have been thanks accused by the federal government. I having been married Surat who was part of the conspiracy disseminate ABRAHAM LINCOLN. So, you know, obviously like you always do a tremendous amount of research when you're writing these books was there a political role in this? I mean were the Rosenbergs guilty. Well, that's a lot of what I leave for the for the reader to to to think about in the contemplate themselves a lot of questions that are brought to mind by this book number one where the Rosenbergs guilty. The answer is Julius Rosenberg was most certainly guilty Ethel Rosenberg perhaps was guilty by sociation without being directly aspire self.

"Saturday January nineteenth this weekend. Pulse. I'm Joey Hudson. You host we gather at twelve noon, every Saturday talk about places to go people to see charitable vents and everything in between right here in the upstate of South Carolina, western North Carolina in northeast, Georgia. Glad to have you along today. Be sure and visit our website ninety four five the answer dot com like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter at talk non four five. Joining me on the ninety four five WGTK guest line. Jeffrey k Smith author of some of my favorites. Rendezvous in Dallas is assoiation of John F Kennedy. The fighting little judge live in Tom's of George C Wallace the wizard of the saddle Nathan Bedford force and one of my really big favorites. Listen to me, the brief life and enduring legacy of buddy, Holly, Jeff good to have you has been way too long. It has always good to be with joy. Yeah. Appreciate it. Last year. You graciously sent me a copy of what at the time was your newest family affair the Rosenberg espionage case. Sorry, took me so long to to get around to reading it by gotta say once again, you nailed it. This is the story wasn't too familiar with it. But you brought it to life is the real life spy story. Tell us about what it really is a real life spy story. And this warned that really polarized America in the early nineteen fifty and as well as much of the world, and it really tore a family of Sunder, the testimony of a brother and a sister in law against I sister and brother went to prison and the sister was ultimately executed people often forget that the fear of communism so-called, red minutes. So in the nineteen fifties. Was akin to the fears that we have today of radical Islamic terrorism. And you know, I it was some somewhat Tom Lee. I guess you could say, and again, this book was initially published a last January, but but the last couple of years we've had all this talk of of Russia and Russian collusion than the interference of a foreign government within our political system. You know back when this story unfolded is a similar atmosphere. All you know, we had government employees having to sign loyalty of we had the passage of the Smith act, which established criminal penalties for persons advocating, the overthrow the American government. We had congressional committees investigating any suspicion of communist activity, and as you mentioned this story has literally brother testifying against his sister who ultimately received the death penalty because of it when you were writing this in researching this did you have in mind that that the the factor drawl any. Correlations between some of the discussions that. We're having now on a possible Russian on influence in our lectures, and our government when you wrote this. Yes. I think there's certain parallels. And of course, as you. And I both know history tends to repeat itself. The, you know, read minutes really began in August, nineteen forty nine when the Soviet Union detonated their first atomic bomb. Well, ahead of the time train predicted by the American military intelligence experts and that really triggered the fear of Soviet subversion. And really precipitated the red scare and it also occurred during the backdrop of the Korean war when communist North Korea invaded democratic South Korea. Ultimately, nearly two million people were killed in that war and leading thirty six thousand Americans. So the climate was very right for perhaps fear trumping reason during the red scare. Now, you point out that the Rosenbergs were the only defendants who were sentenced to death one. You think that was the case? Well, I think that the federal government, namely, the Justice department wanted to send a message to anyone who potentially might have been a spy for the Soviet Union or Wisconsin inviting becoming a spy for the union. You know, the Rosenbergs were the only two people ever executed for espionage at a time. When United States was not at war and Ethel Rosenberg was only the second woman in history to have been fake security by the federal government. I having been married Surat who was part of the conspiracy disseminate ABRAHAM LINCOLN. So, you know, obviously like you always do a tremendous amount of research when you're writing these books was there a political role in this? I mean were the Rosenbergs guilty. Well, that's a lot of what I leave for the for the reader to to to think about in the contemplate themselves a lot of questions that are brought to mind by this book number one where the Rosenbergs guilty. The answer is Julius Rosenberg was most certainly guilty Ethel Rosenberg perhaps was guilty by sociation without being directly aspire self. You know, the second question did their alleged crimes warrant punishment by the death penalty? One can argue that either way how much of a role politics play in this apparently a significant amount. How much of this was a government sanctioned frame up, and how much of the trial testimony was perjured certainly bay. The green glass the brother of Ethel Rosenberg as well as wife offered perjured testimony. And there's some. They were coerced by the prosecution, and so yeah. Well, you can just see how something under that climate how it could have gotten so out of hand and politics is very strange at times. So wonderful job is always a truly when I again, I wasn't that for millier with this story. But once I started it, I literally could not put it down.

"The. Like I picked the wrong week smoke. Make it up as you go along ad-lib improvise on the five reason tedious and boring wrong week victory. What are you talking about? We worked on that all week itself. Everybody shelter. The most anticipated hour of the day is here. Welcome to upstate live with Joey Hudson, your source for the big trending topics and the stories that are about to fall through the cracks combined with great guests and free wheeling audience participation of stayed live on ninety four five WGTK the answer. Welcome in. And yes, it's Friday, whatever's on your mind, I'm all ears. Capitol Hill is still reeling over the presence last minute decision to cancel Nancy Pelosi and her fellow Democrats military aircraft yesterday. This after speaker Pelosi asked the president to postpone the state of the union until the government can open back up or in her words, just submit your state of the union speech in a letter reminding the president there's nothing in the constitution that even requires him to give the state of the union. Well, there appears to be a movement to maybe have the president give his annual dress to a joint meeting of of the congress and the nation somewhere in middle America, for example, as there isn't anything requiring him to actually give the speech in the nation's capital either. What do you think should the president is plan his own state of the union of event? Make maybe have it in the stadium in Dallas. Pat, Pat about one hundred thousand Americans in there and turn it into a celebration of freedom. Hope you're. Join the conversation. Eight seven seven two three five nine four zero five on this Friday can't get through on our busy talk lines. His a quick note on the big rock text line again as eight seven seven two three five nine four zero five will continue our conversation with candidates for the GOP primary in Greenville Senate district six Wednesday. I had Jeffrey stringer yesterday Representative white Loftus, and we wrap things up today with the final candidate in this GOP primary. Amy, Robert Doyle serves Greenville city council, representing the citizens of district one she serves as chairperson of planning and neighborhoods committee, which over seas redevelopment of the neighborhood, streets and parks councilwoman. Dole has a long list of organizations. He served over the years like a metro YMCA the peace center, the children's museum of the upstate. And she delivers bills on wills on mayor for twenty years. Amy's the mother of four welcome. And thank you for spending. A few minutes of your time this afternoon. Good afternoon. Joey, thanks for having me back yesterday. I had Representative Dwight loft this on Wednesday Jeffrey stringer join us as well. And I'm going to ask you some of the same questions that I talked with these two gentlemen, just this week. Governor Henry McMaster released his executive budget with an emphasis on education tax relief public safety. Obviously the legislature has to give the final approval to this budget. And if successful in this election, you'll ventilate cast a vote on what you believe to be the states spending priorities. Let's talk for a minute about those priorities. In-in concerns? You may have with the state budget, and what you believe should be those priorities. Well, I am thrilled to see that. The governor masters is focusing on education last week speaker. Jay Lewis house speaker John Lewis was Lucas within Greenville. And he said that our fourth graders are now testing behind the fourth graders in Mississippi. Now that means we're last Joey so we need to start focusing on what we're. On education, we need to an an I don't necessarily think it's more money. I think there's got to be a reprioritisation policy, but my whole philosophy about education is push it out to the local school boards the local school boards. Should be accountable. We elect them to be accountable. They have they have visions. They have priorities they understand that their teachers need raises and more thorny and atonomy in the classroom, but give it to the local governments. I feel the same way about taxes push it out to the counties and the cities to administer the the infrastructure that the citizens need. I want say one more thing that is not mentioned in the budget is the local government fund, the cities and the counties sent millions and millions and millions of dollars down to Columbia, and we receive pennies back Greenville county is a donor county. The Greenville county citizens are owed fifty eight million dollars in local government fund. This is got to stop. We have got to. Allow local governments to administer the dollars. Keep the dollars in Greenville county and invest in roads and infrastructure. I'm glad you brought it up. Let's talk about that. Because as you said Greenville is donor county, we're the the wealthiest county in the state is four as tax revenue, but this has been an issue Amy for years. So how do we finally solve that? Well, I think we have to address local government find by by law, and it's from the nineteen seventies. We have been sending this down as you know, and every year the legislature enacts, a proviso to take it out of the budget. And then and then puts it back in because by law, we are owed that money, but the overall Joey what I'd like to see is that local governments answer all these questions. We we receive questions of all kinds from our citizens. We're the closest to the taxpayer. Let's move the money as close to the taxpayer as possible. Overall. I mean, I would say that the citizens of Greenville are owed four point five million. The the citizens of Greer are owed four and a half million. The citizens of travelers rest are owed half a million. This money is just sitting in Columbia, and they're using it for other purposes. So make the local government fund whole that is my whole priority. This is a great segue. I was gonna ask you Representative loftiest believes it his experience in the state house repairs him to serve in the Senate literally just walking across the aisle, Mr. stringer thinks at the fact, he's never been elected to office, a makes him uniquely qualified. How does your experience on city council? Make you qualified for the state Senate. Well, prior to city council, I was in the business world for a long time. I Bill ecommerce systems I had my own business manufacturing. So I have a lot of business experience, which is why I ran for for government. But if you look at the city of Greenville is there any department in the state house that is run as well as the city of Greenville. We have we have a balanced budget a balanced budget that is truly balanced when we get a surplus. We turn around and invest it two weeks later, we turn around and invested in infrastructure neighborhoods downtown police wage increases. So

"Guess what day? It is be a pop quiz on Wednesday, picking them. Now. Wednesday stays great day. It's the most anticipated hour of the day is here. Welcome to upstate live with Joey Hudson, your source for the big trending topics and the stories that are about default through the cracks combined with great guests and free wheeling audience participation buckle up. It could get rough eights upstate live on ninety four five WGTK the answer to President Donald Trump postponed. His state of the union speech. According to house speaker Nancy Pelosi, that's exactly what should happen and allow or speaker over to the White House today miss Pelosi site security concerns and suggest the present wait until the partial government shutdown in before coming over to Capitol Hill address joint session of congress. I've got an idea Madam speaker if you're so concerned about security why not just give the president of money needs to build the wall. So we can all feel safe. Most observers of yesterday's testimony of William bar in front of Senator Lindsey grants. Senate. Share committee agreed that he fared pretty well, Fox News reporting that Mr. bar emerged without a scratch grape or bruising knowledge in yesterday's calm, respectful atmosphere was totally different from what they saw during the Brett Cavanaugh hearings on more on that in just a minute next week January twenty second voters in the state Senate district seat six that the that's the seat that William Tim's bake aided on being elected to represent the fourth congressional district. They'll cast her vote in a special election to fill the remainder of his term there. Three candidates councilwoman. Amy, Riber Doyle, Representative Dwight losses and businessman Jeffrey stringer outta ask. All three candidates jomie for few minutes this week on to talk about why they should win your vote in this special election. We're going gonna start that today. Jeffrey stringer is a native of north Greenville county is raised in the Blue Ridge community after graduating from Blue Ridge high school earned his degree in international studies from the universe. The of South Carolina, and while in college became very involved in Republican campaigns and as worked behind the scenes to help elect Republicans at all levels of government, Jeffrey and his wife Elise. Tucson Stendhal and Jones at least serves as the pastor of redeemer Lutheran church in gritter Jeffrey, thank you for taking a few minutes. We after need to be with us. Thank you, Joe. If you're having since you have been involved behind the scenes, so to speak helping other candidates all these years, how does it filled anoth- at your name's going to actually be on the ballot on January twenty second. If a lot different it's been an eye opening experience. When you're handling a campaign behind the scenes, you don't get to hear lots of things that are on the front line and talking to different voters while have been trying to get my name out. There has been a very much eye opening experience, you really get a good feel of what the issues are how they're feeling it their everyday life. How how the government is affecting them. And how they would rather have the government stay out of their lives rather than rather than the as involved as they are. Now, I'll think that's probably an overall feeling we all share that in this case less is more. So just this week Jeffrey governor, Henry master released his executive budget with an emphasis on education tax relief and public safety. Obviously the legislature muss put their final approval on this. If successful in this special election, you'll eventually cast a vote on what you believe should be the state's spending priorities talk with us for a minute about the state budget. And what you believe those priorities should be obviously right now, we do need to make education a priority. The school systems are struggling and a lot of it is because teachers are worried about testing testing testing of the students, and this is in the public school system. They're worried about all the administrative red tape they need freedom to actually teach there the children in their classrooms rather than having to worry about you know, what is what is the next thing. That's coming down from new administration. I do believe that the teachers in our state should receive a pay increase, and we need that not only to attract new teachers, but also to retain the teachers that we have I've actually heard. To because of the class size. There have been some teachers that have said I would rather have a smaller class where I can focus on the students to rather than have have a pain crease right now looking at the budget, and we have this big reserve. I don't quite understand. Why? They have just now addressed this issue as far as education goes, I know that just throwing money at the problems not gonna help we're twenty four th in the nation in student funding yet we're fiftieth in in the results. Sure firm education. So yes, we do need to pay the teachers more. Yes that surplus will help but at the same time we need to really rethink what we're doing in the classrooms. I think that school choice is a big. Is a big thing that will actually help competition on the public school side. I'm in favor of school choice, and you know, about eight years ago. There was a well written Bill that failed getting through the house by one vote. And actually Republicans were the ones that did not vote for that Bill that the died in the house, and it was a well written Bill. It was sponsored by some local politicians that were very much in support of school choice. But you look back in if something like that could have made it through eight years ago, it could have potentially affected where our public school system is now in regards to to our our testing to where we're are standing in the nation. We wouldn't be behind Mississippi. Right. Yeah. I gotcha. There yet. Let's move on. We we there lot of important issues. Of course that our state is facing. Just this week. Senator Tom Davis introduced a compassionate Care Act. He's a Republican Beaufort. This was a co sponsored in the house by Representative Peter McCoy, Senator Davis says this is about doctors and patients deciding what's in the patient's best interest. Not politicians not law enforcement. You have a personal story. Here you have a personal interest. I in a child talk with us a little bit about this whole issue. And it's gonna be a big issue this legislative session of legalizing medical marijuana. Whatever you wanna call it talk with how this affects your household. Well, my oldest son Tyndall was my wife actually went into labor is seventeen weeks with with him. And by the grace of God and him working through doctors. They were able to stop the labor in save both his life and my wife's live too because they said that there was a fifty percent chance that she may have infection. And it could not only be her life, but that both of their lives. So she went into premature labor. They were able to stop it. She was on bed rest for four months in the hospital. Our son was born early. He was born at thirty one weeks and spent some time in the intensive care unit came home, you know, we thought we had a very healthy child at and we did he was doing well. And then about when he was three years old we discovered that. He was having seizures called absence seizures, basically, we thought he was Spacey, and he was just had these blank stares. But in reality he was having seizures that were actually affecting affecting his brain. So fortunately, we have good doctors. And there are some medications out there to help control the seizures. But there has been research done that the medicinal cannabis in the way, they extract the oils. Is very effective in keeping those seizures at bay. He's maxed out on some of these medicines. So, you know, we're as he grows the potential is he could have more breakthrough seizures we've met parents that have children that were having ten seizures a day. They actually moved out of state to states where medicinal marijuana was legal, and they were recommended that treatment by their doctors. And they had kids the head tin seizures a day. And then they were, you know, going down to like three Caesar three seizures a month while so it isn't affective treatment for not only that. But my father has Parkinson's disease is been shown to be effective treatment for Parkinson's disease for cancer patients who need to keep up strength through continuing to eat getting protein in their system while they're doing chemotherapy radiation. You know, it it is shown that medicinal. Quality can help the nausea where they can continue to eat and keep their strength. And they have a better chance of beating that cancer. If they if they can do that. So I am in favor of the Bill the way it is written is a very conservative Bill compared to other states, and it is going to be very regulated. I'm not on board with recreational marijuana. I just want to make that clear. I mean, this is a completely different ballgame. And I believe that if it is well regulated. If if Lohan forcement is onboard there have been some concessions made in this year's Bill to help fund law enforcement and help actually education drug education for students. So I think the way the Bill is written is very very good for the state of South Carolina, and is also not something that could be misconstrued as we're bringing in recreational marijuana likes them. Other stage done. So so you would be in favor of the Bill as Senator Tom Davis introduced just as wing ES as written. I'm in favor of that Bill, and we just have just a this time goes by quickly Jeffrey so have just a few minutes left. Here's I want to kind of wrap a couple of questions together. Here roads infrastructure. You know, do we have the money that we need Greenville county is is the wealthiest county in the state, we we're sending a lot of tax dollars to Columbia that are being sent to other counties talk with us a little about do. We have the money that we need for our roads and infrastructure. We raised our gas tax just recently and is better way for us to to to distribute the money more equitably, I think that we do have the money now, especially with with the gas tax increase the usage tax increase that we had. You know, we we were operating under nineteen eighty-seven numbers when we increased that a couple years ago. So so we should now have the money that we need to keep our infrastructure up to date and repair where the repairs need to be made. Now as a county, we should get our fair share. I think we should get our fair share. But we also have to think, you know, we have a lot of. You know, we have a lot of trucks going from Greenville to Charleston to the poor things like that. So we also need those, you know, those roads that take state funds to maintain to be kept up as well. So while we need to keep our fair share. I think there does need to be some some of that money going towards other parts of the state that directly affect Greenville county with me today Jeffrey stringer, he's a candidate in the special election for Senate seat six in Greenville county, Jeffrey, take a minute just to to tell our listeners while they should be casting their vote for you January twenty second. I thought long and hard about running for this seat. And I've wanted to get my name in and as an elected official as a candidate for years. I feel like I have a lot to give back to the community. I am a very conservative candidate. I'm pro-life. I'm pro second amendment. I'm very fiscally conservative. I think that we need to look at spending before we take a look at increasing any kind of tax. I'm very much antitax would very much rather see fees or taxes associated with with usage rather than just across the board. I feel that what I bring is a free spur fresh perspective. My other two opponents are both elected officials. They've been elected officials for a long time that they they have their own perspective. But for me, I'm a very conservative voter. I have some different new ideas, and how we can fix an address some of the issues in our state, whether it be education, or whether it be the pension crisis in those are the reasons that I feel like I am the best candidate to take my voice to Columbia for Senate district six. Yeah. Jeffrey, thank you again for being with us and spending a few minutes of you with us. Thank you so much sure. And plan to vote next week January the twenty second special election Senate district number six in Greenville county. So should President Donald Trump postpone, his state of the union speech? That's what house speaker Nancy Pelosi. Ask him in a letter to White House today. We're in. Talk about that in just a few minutes. Eight seven seven two three five nine four zero five year.

"And I did a little Clemson sports program called the tiger sports report. So yes, I mean that was a really long answer to a really short question. But it did it just ignited my whole career really was ignited through Clemson football. That wasn't important Jane for the Clemson football program. I mean when the Tigers take the field later tonight. Yes, they won the ACC this year. They won the Cotton Bowl last weekend. But the idea that this school in this small southern town could actually win a national championship. Started back in the in the eighties. You are. Exactly. Right. And you remember that? Well, as I do, you know was not on anybody's radar. It was not something we talked about bought about or dream about until we finished our season against South Carolina. And we went oh, wow. Look we're undefeated and it went to number one. And guess what you guys get to go to the Orange Bowl. I mean that was really the first time it ever occurred to us. We're we're kinda spoiled a little bit. Now, you know that we understand that we've got the culture and the program, and and all of the facilities in the foundations that we're really in it, you see that Alabama one Clemson wanted twenty sixty Alabama could be our turn again, we could see another, you know, three after after tonight. So yeah, but the culture and eighty one completely different. But once you've won it once you've proven to the whole wide world that Clemson university and Lou upstate South Carolina can win a national championship can be a real contender individualism football. You're right. Joey just writes, the story for the rest of football future things Jane that just. Really makes it special though. The Clemson football program is more than about just playing the game. A coach swinging the coaches before him I'm gonna be talking with coast, Danny Ford here in just a few minutes, but just a legend over in those areas, but you know, these coaches and the Clemson program in general, they're serious about these men completing their education, they're serious about making sure that these young men are prepared for life after football because that day eventually come exactly right in professional football. Even even with as many guys as we do have heading to the NFL, if not the story for the majority of the team, very small percentage, and even those guys aren't gonna play maybe five years match. So you've gotta understand that your education is the most important thing and look at Christian Wilkins in four years. He has his undergraduate and graduate degree, you know, Devo, I think just really sets the precedent for that. He is the first in his family to graduate from college. He was able to do that. Thanks callings after you walked onto. The Alabama football team, gene stallings gave him a scholarship, then gene stallings called him back after he was going to graduate and be in business while gene selling I come back into your got a graduate degree that you can work on to grad assistant, and so he earned a graduate degree and that the emphasis that he he gives these players, and you know, what if a mama of college age person, my son is twenty years old, if my son were college football player, there is not one person in America that I would want to tuck him up under the wing of..

Tuttle a thanks so much for spending a few minutes of your afternoon with us. In just a few hours, the young man who make up this year's Clemson Tigers football team. They're gonna be taking the filled with another opportunity to pick up another national championship. This would be number three as someone who's experienced this firsthand. What's going on in these young man's mind right now? So prepared for this game. Oh, man. What a great question. You think about the scene in locker room is crazy. They intimidate not only, you know, with happened back at home in Clemson on campus with our friends, and they're they're classmates, but also thinking about, you know, their families are coming to watch them Ryan west coast, and it's an incredible scene as a credible feeling and to most people surprise a really really nervous about just the first play. What's the? A first place going to feel like and be like and and once the first place, especially whether you own defensive offense. And whoever gets the corn tossed will give the the advantage of. Okay, now, it's just a regular game. So basically after that I play you kinda settle in. And you just kind of get into the game, then and you kind of forget that the crowds even there. Right. You forget about your parents forget about the, you know, the whole crowd and knowing that even though they know that it's a big game. In every snap matters. It becomes a game. It becomes what you've been prepared for. And and after the first hit after the first cats, the I throw the first tackle. Now you start to settle in on.
