At one point in time we had a physician here that everybody knew really well known him for a long time. Then a family doctor for a long time. That was my lowest point I still get teary thinking about it That i've been a nursing for twenty years and that was actually my breaking point. I when he didn't make it i had to. I already had some time off scheduled in that couldn't come at a better time I couldn't get through the next day of work without breaking down for an hour Our every hour was that was probably my darkest time at work. My darkest time over and my last twenty years of nursing so that was a. I was hard and then seeing some other family and friends come in That have fought this. That have beat this. That are scared along the way and other patients. That just aren't making it. I've never seen anything like cova. There's i we don't we just don't know enough about it. We learn new things every day and it seems like things change every day and i it. Just that's the one thing. That's constant about covid fluctuate senate changes and we just learn new things all the time. And that's what makes it scary. I've been a nurse for twenty years. And i've never experienced out like this. It's we're working. Extra shifts were working. We do great as a team but the the stress the emotional stress the physical stress that it is putting on us being there for the patients. Which is what we got into nursing. Four we're the only ones that can be there for some of these patients that most emotional stress losing them. is just. I've never experienced anything like it before. So the emotional and the physical stress. It's exhausting absolutely exhausting. I don't know how we are getting through it. We are but. I don't know how what i'm thankful for right now.

Driscolls Will Grow Strawberries Vertically, Year-Round
"Wonder I'm David Brown and this is business wars daily on this Thursday October fifteenth. What's on your plate for lunch today a salad some fruit. Since, the pandemic began many of us are eating healthier or at least trying to and all those additional leafy Greens and Berries on your plate have to come from somewhere preferably somewhere that reduces long distance food miles and maybe improves the taste over those deadly dull hothouse tomatoes. Our Appetite for fresh produce is fueling big growth in hot new industry vertical farming. On Monday, Driscoll's America's biggest strawberry provider said, it will start growing some of it strawberries in an indoor vertical farm that farm is run by San. Francisco AG Tech. Company. Plenty. Unlimited. Driscoll's new huge greenhouse will be in Laramie Wyoming hardly the nation's strawberry capital anticipating consumers possible objections driscoll says strawberries grown vertically without dirt or fresh air or just as tasty. Perhaps tastier than those grown on its California farms founded in twenty fourteen plenty unlimited began growing mountains of leafy Greens in a San Francisco vertical greenhouse last year. It now supplies leafy Greens to hundreds of Safeway, and Albertson's grocery stores in California. If you were to walk into its High Tech Greenhouse, you'd look up and up and up at endless walls of Kale a regular lettuce in Missoula. Mix. The company is green in more ways than one. They say, they use no GMO's and no pesticides because they don't spray for bugs plenty makes the startling claim that you don't even need to wash their produce and like other vertical farms plenty claims to use a tiny fraction of and water compared to traditional farming about one percent of land in less than five percent of water. Most vertical farms launched with Greens which grow well hydroponically and aeroponics not to mention they take less space than say tomatoes and strawberries. Moreover, local Greens are popular. They're also delicate which makes them great candidates for one of the purported benefits offered by tech indoor farms. That is if you can use controlled indoor conditions including led lights, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and recycled water to grow food on a large scale, you can put these greenhouses anywhere whether it be damned, and if you can grow strawberries in frozen Laramie Wyoming year round, you can shrink food miles the average. Plate of food travels fifteen hundred miles before it winds up on our table shrinking those food miles is good for the environment. It's also good for most produce great for grains. But now that vertical Greens have been proven, it's time to expand into other fruits and vegetables which brings us back to driscoll's the strawberry giant. It supplies a third of all strawberries in America and it's making a big investment in plenty. The Financial Times reports that high profile deal is only one of a flurry of investments signaling the news that high tech indoor farming is here to stay. Recently revel Greens. Minnesota startup raised almost seventy million dollars growing. It's total investment to two hundred million dollars using rainwater and snow. Melt. Company grows lettuce in mammoth greenhouses in California Texas and of course, it home in Minnesota with its new money rebel Greens plans to expand its Texas footprint according to the Star Tribune newspaper.

and John ranch both on the phone line both on the centerpoint energy home service plus hotline John it will start with you juror outlet many other media outlets and then further confirmation from any clover shar about forty minutes ago saying that at some point this afternoon most likely in a tandem press conference with governor walls Keith Ellison wall mounts that the Garrick shop in charge has been changed from third degree to second degree and will announce other charges for the three officers what is your reaction to this decision it's quite significant from a legal as well as a social standpoint legally having the charges upgraded against their children and most profoundly having that three other ops who did not intervene in the killing of George Floyd be charged is what so many have been calling for and now there's a specific adjudication of what role each of them played in the degree that they played especially with the upgraded charges against your children would already have been charged from a social standpoint this is a signal to so many of the protesters not just here in Minneapolis but across the country that there indeed will be a legal reckoning with what so many around the world have seen on that videotape and Memorial Day and so certainly this you know maybe especially as the memorial service for George Floyd is set to happen tomorrow you know it's a way for people to realize there is a process it is going to move forward and hopefully this will be able to you know take some of the steam out of the more violent aspect of the protest and you know have people begin to let the process take its course at this point how bout you Pat well I'm just going to say this needed to happen I think you know elevating it from third to second degree murder indicates how serious this case is and it sounds a big broad message to everyone that they're going to do their utmost to bring all of these individuals to justice and I think my guess is the protesters and the community at large will be particularly heartened that the other three officers are now going to be legally charged with aiding and abetting I want to remind folks that Minneapolis police do have a duty to intervene that was one of the requirements they adopted sometime ago so that this is something that is supposed to happen too often it doesn't but now we will see you know wait a true in depth examination of this case and I think it's a it's a good first step toward telling people that this is being taken very very seriously Pat last week on Wednesday Thursday and Friday I was very critical of governor walls and in particular Jacob fry not as much moment Carter I thought our walls and fry advocated are key parts are they were not visible at all which is an essential part of handling a crisis the state needs to hear from the two people involved I thought they were not prepared for the number of protesters I thought day after day to me by the time is Thursday Friday that was unacceptable I think both have improved I think by Saturday and Sunday in particular governor walls responded with an enormous force the most wars we saw from the NASCAR since World War two I want you to go first name John you jump in what was a fair assessment of those two and how they handled the key points to last week well I think it's fair to say that they're a little slow off the mark I'm not sure why I mean given the flashpoint that we've had before it was not unfortunately able that there would be a huge reaction to this particularly the delay after you know when the three officers weren't arrested when Derek shop and there was I think several days that elapsed they lost their job but that in no way conveyed the gravity of the situation I think there should have been police presence earlier that's something that still needs to you know go back and look at why there was not a stronger response when the most damaging part of the looting an actual writing as opposed to the peaceful protests are going on that's when the real damage happens so I think that if there's some looking into I think you know for the governor to ask that's state wide level kind of understandable how that might take a day or two first day was probably too late but as you said you know they improve their response they got on it we're probably looking at another extension of the curfew today and it looks like things are becoming a little more peaceful that said I think we need to look really carefully at the distinction that was made between our peaceful protesters and violence destruction by writing and looting those are two separate category John how about you hi I realize this was an incredibly difficult challenge and there was no perfect way to do it and no one would have walked away and where everybody was sad that was flawless that was exemplary no one could approach it I just understand day after day last week why the numbers were not included I I I just look back by Wednesday the numbers on Thursday and Friday should have enormous impacts white is very valid to there had to be a key point how long Forsman dealt with peaceful protesters were every bit within their rights to be out there compared to those who out there just intent on harm and and profiting themselves extraordinary there were two press conferences in two days but essentially had the same message and they had to have the second one because the first one they did not deliver upon if you remember there was a press conference with governor walls in John herring came and it nearly everyone involved in the situation except for the two mayors in particular there seem to be some pointed criticism however oblique Ameriprise Minneapolis and at that point governor Wallace said that he owns this in and that it looks like with the call up and it's specifically the direction that the National Guard was asked to take that they were going to get on top of it that did not happen and affecting seem to get worse the next night then the next morning Saturday morning they came together again that was when we had the full call up of the guard and they were the same we assuring words that were in general delivered upon that night and since then it's been a better situation challenging and changing no question about it but it's being more in control since then so what the disconnect between the proper diagnosis of the problem and the inability to solve it suggests that everyone involved underestimated the potency of these protests and the number of people who would be involved and the ability and willingness of some to let it spiral out of control so I think that it's time goes on and there should be a really a proper look at what happened last this I'm good you know unfortunate center never be replicating it in some capacity that the state knows how to better respond yeah I really like to see a closer examination of that vision to you know give us the third precinct I thought that was extraordinary us and and now it may be that critical evidence was banned the lockers of those police officers I just I've never seen anything like that ever I'm with you hundred percent let's pause all remind folks this news has come out here the last few minutes probably doesn't surprise anyone the governor walls has extended the night time curfew that's tonight and Thursday from ten to four the president and also stiff defense secretary comments on those two gentlemen we come back with John and Patricia on CCO Chad Hartman the model for world

trying to figure out what he should have been charged with because it should be it should be something that merits where it resonates with kid resonates with the family and the same time you're trying to remember again he's a kid who thinks he's you know he's taken Fortnite I just remember the amount of time you spend with ten year old kids and I'm much the brains have informed it's scientifically proven what a ten year old kids are just jokes at that point and just like a lot of adults are doped when they're not buying corona beer because they think it's going to give them corona virus and they're told to Texas in gopuram of people are amazing so judge jury and executioner Dan cook what do you do I you know I tend to go lighter on these things and I think you do and most actuation to me if the police show up I'm if this is a ten year old kid pointing a toy gun which and I totally understand why the driver wouldn't necessarily know that it's a Toyota get freaked out I'm not blaming him at all and if I'm in his spot if I'm in his spot I probably just be a way of just get back out there but I don't blame my initial thought probably out wait I'm going to go on it yeah if I do then look back I see the ten year old kid in my gonna turn around I'm not sure I'm going to guess at this point am I convinced that is that we gone you better no I'm I'm not gonna listen I'm not that knowledge when guns be convinced what's real what's not why it's in a what do you see that orange tip or not right I mean if if you're see that clearly enough I think you know you're safe assuming that it's a toy but you know at going by at any kind of speed or even from a distance there's no guarantee you're going to see that so yeah I probably just bail out of there but the police are being involved at one point to my mind and again you either this is a generic case because we don't know what you know where this temple the ten year old that maturity wise but if the police show up and having a conversation with a ten year old kid in my brain that says that can make a pretty serious impression a ten year old cat but I don't know what his background is I don't know if he was in trouble for I don't know there's any other you have the if there's nothing let's go life there's nothing I can do any of the police showing up and giving lectures plenty I think it's got him on that for me but I'm not giving him a felony I'm not alone no less there is some sort of pattern of this thirty two pass one Jamie you because I don't think Susan waving a weapon and anybody but maybe we'll

Robert Mueller: Charging Trump was not an option
"From the Star Tribune special counsel, Robert Mueller said Wednesday that charging President Donald Trump with a crime is quote, not an option unquote, because a federal rules, but he used his first public remarks on the Russia investigation to emphasize that he did not exonerate, the president, if we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime. We would have said, so Mueller declared now. No, those remarks have been seized on, by Democrats, of course, as Mueller winking, and nodding and implying that you guys need to impeach this guy because I can't go after I can't charged with a crime, but you can. And I'm not saying he didn't do anything. I'm just saying. I wasn't able to charge him with having done something. And the ball is in your court, which could be characterized, like, if, if he really did think that Donald Trump. Had broken the law in a significant way. And that's the way he articulates it with a wink nod how we how have hearted and weak and cowardly to do that. But of course you know the the, the effort here. Seems to be to try to. Put an air of legitimacy, and objectively on these proceedings over the course of the past two years. And I just don't think it's going work out for them. Another report here, the start to be in talks about the response surprising Washington, with brief remarks Wednesday Mueller in indicated it's up to congress to decide what to do with his findings the special counsel reiterated that bound by just -partment policy charging sitting president with a crime was not an option, but he also stressed. He could not exonerate Trump. Instead, he cited that same policy to say the constitution requires a process of their than the criminal Justice system. Of course, the implication, there is impeachment. So here's my call to arms or my challenge to Democrats, and to Justin Amash, and anybody else who thinks this president has committed high crimes and misdemeanors. And as deserving of impeachment do it. Do it. What is stopping you? What is holding you back? Now, this article here that I just quoted from goes onto report about the conflict within the Democratic Party between the presidential potential contenders and junior congressional members who are a little bit more hot headed. Versus the leadership, Nancy Pelosi does not want to move forward with impeachment, and her rationale is it's going to be divisive. That's what she's saying. Right. It's gonna be divisive in reality. It's in the toilet Alice's. Right. The, the only consideration that is dominating the democratic mind right now is what can we do to leverage this for twenty twenty what is going to be the best position to be in to go through an impeachment percent because here's the thing if the if the impeach him now. Then the danger from their perspective. The danger is that the proceedings conclude and nothing comes of it, right. Like, regardless of whether or not the vote for impeachment. Goes one way or the other if there is no follow up if he's not ousted from office, which seems unlikely then he goes into twenty twenty being able to claim further exoneration because, look, they, they gave me their best shot and I'm still here. Right. So in that sense, they will have spent their amunition as it were so the path that they're trying to take instead is to keep the investigation, hacky sack up in the air, if they can just keep asking questions and sewing doubt and conjuring up reasons to investigate this that and the other thing and subpoena this person that person if they can keep doing that through twenty twenty then their hope is that. They can leverage the doubt that, that process creates in order to as a wedge in order to get Trump out of office and replace him. With whoever their nominee is. I don't think that's gonna work. I mean, something something further something would have to develop or drop or be discovered way, above and beyond and outside of anything that has been disclosed thus far. And I just don't believe that that exists because if that thing, whatever it would have to be if it existed, Mueller would have found it do does anybody doubt for a second that Robert Mueller, and the apparatus surrounding him, you know, the, the I forget exactly how they characterize themselves, the contingency plan. In the FBI and the DOJ that was so upset. When Trump one do you honestly believe for a second that, if they had something that could dethrone Trump that they wouldn't have dropped it by now? Of course, they don't have it. And so the, the needle that the Democrats are trying to thread is to keep your interest to the interest of the independent voter. Focused on this for another. How how many months are we talking about here, like eighteen months? That's a long time to keep people thinking about this and carrying about this in the absence of any new developments. It's a losing strategy, you know, they might have to come up with value proposition. They might actually have to explain to people why they should be in

"Again for playing politics this partnership between the Star Tribune editorial board and WCTC aradio Patricia Lopez John rash here from the Star Tribune chat. Herbin here's C O. Patricia. Let's start with Keith and Kim Ellison as we talk you're on Wednesday. The divorce records were unsealed today. The paper joined -nother outlet. Yes. Pursue in this. Right. I'm sure the editorial board doesn't always agree with everything. The rest of the paper does it's different. Party today. Did you philosophically agree with that? Was there enough other information, namely, the Karen Monaghan allegations were you felt like the divorce records should have been made available. Well, the allegations by themselves don't really they don't really resolve anything because there and the one piece that might the video is something that Monahan will not will not release. So I think in that case, you know. Yes, you turn to something like divorce records. It's it's never a first course because it's all of their personal stuff. Our understanding is that congressman Ellison asked the judge to do a limited release anything in reference to what what did you think of that? I mean, that's putting a lot of trust in the judge to make that kind of decision. I think the judge probably decided he didn't want to go that way. And it's easier to just sealer unseal, and he opted to unseal and what we found. So far, and I have not read through the records myself. I'm going through on the reports that I've seen is that there are allegations of abuse. But there by Keith Ellison against his wife who was suffering from both multiple sclerosis and depression, and he has since issued a statement that says that you know, they had a wonderful marriage in that he regrets that he was not more aware of how her illness might have affected their relationship. That's a that's a fair assessment. Just declare again, John was Keith Ellison continued the Kim Ellison had harmed him. So where does this story go from here in a race that appears to be very competitive because maybe how devices some people viewed the congressman before and also because of the reporting on the the Karen Mon Hannah Gatien's indeed public opinion polls, including from the Star Tribune suggested this is a real tight race. And this probably won't break. It in any distinct direction this has become a defining dynamic in the entire race. And so as uncomfortable as it is to have someone's divorce records unsealed, it's perhaps germane to the overall narrative of what's going on with this incredibly important seat of attorney general. So I think that because nothing that came out of these divorce records suggest any domestic abuse on the part of Representative Ellison himself that this will at minimum not amplify this as an issue, and if anything might make voters turn towards the really sharp differences between Doug wardlow, the GOP endorsed candidate and Representative Ellison the dealer, and if they start looking at those issues that might have more of a bearing on the race then is ongoing the ongoing allegations by Karen Monaghan. Let's which to all car and housing the Republican senatorial candidate against Tina Smith Huffington Post, potentially with tip from the Smith campaign. We can speculate on that wouldn't shock any of us. But we don't have proof that there off there's lots of oppo research that earth that exactly and and do, you know, both sides, you don't apple research, months and months and months ago, and sometimes and interest groups do it now, and sometimes they time it this is a Facebook post when Carne Housley was not an elected official was in and the Obamas meeting with the Queen. I made a comment about Michelle Obama. I don't put your hands on the Queen. And then our posture then mentioned that she missed the Reagan's more Ronald, but then made a comment about Michelle Obama in tied to Ronald Reagan's movie bedtime for Bonzo, and that really old old movie. Yes, exactly that the chimp would have had better posture than the first lady, I will be clear that I was. Was very direct in my criticism KARN. Housing. I don't know enough about KARN. Housley to suggest that she's a racist. I don't know enough about that. There's a pattern, but this comment brought out in old negative. Disgusting stereotype about African-Americans and apes and chimpanzees. And I don't care if you're an elected official or not to act like this was a joke. And people shouldn't be outraged. All I I disagree. I found it very insulting. What what was needed was an apology, even if it was nine years ago? Yep. She can go ahead and maintain that it wasn't racist. I, you know, but you apologize for that. Because comparing a black woman to a chimpanzee is never going to be appropriate. There is no context that makes that appropriate ever. And by the way, John UTM issue because we talked about this a lot the other day when a number of white, callers and texture said I've been calling my kids. Little monkeys are making comparisons. It just isn't the same thing. I mean, let's not be that naive. Nobody is saying that some phrases some people can be overly sensitive. This has been thrown at African-Americans for decades and decades and decades, including the first ever African American president and first lady and at the Obamas in particular act, and you quite wait their cultural. Context is distinctly different. And that's something that, you know, everyone of his certain age, and by that, you know, coming of age most people now realise, so, you know, yes, some people will look at it and say it's a nine year old Facebook post in it doesn't have relevance to the race. But I concur with my colleague Patricia that an apology would have put it in its proper context in explanation as well. And instead, you had more countercharges about the Democrats, and, you know, they're desperate campaign tactics, and it became political, and I think that was a missed opportunity. And that's what drives the story, by the way, the quickest way to end, it is to say, you know, what that was a private string between me, and, you know, some family and friends at never was intended to be public. I deeply apologize for that. It was an appropriate. Why why don't more politicians do that? Because I I've been I've been pointing my criticism stores. Keith ellison. I think Keith Ellison has avoided many media outlets on a regular basis answering questions. So we. You see this more and more where when there's a controversy. Let's put out a statement. Let's try to be really quiet for two three days. And hopefully, yeah, blame this something else will pop up it's very odd. Because you know, my experience has been the public loves to forgive you. Give felt apology. And you know, frankly, you can get away with just about anything. Right. What do you think? John that when they also went sometimes when they apologize. It's not for the act itself. But they might apologize. If people have been offended, and that's a dodge in in its own right in. So I concur that I think that you know. More frequent apologies because everyone is human and everyone can imagine if their life was so closely examined, but I think that that would move a lot of these issues down. But you're right. And it's on both sides candidates had all levels, all the way, certainly the president of the United States. Okay. The president. Let's talk about two issues that the president. Let's talk about the most significant. What happened at Jamal Chicago? It was kashogi assuming clearly he was he did not leave the building to me and others. It seems like the evidence is overwhelming that he was murdered that there are more recordings at there's more evidence that it's clear the top people from Saudi Arabia were involved. I mean, Lindsey Graham inside the consulates have rogue killers inside the contract, Lindsey Graham who has become an enormous defender of the president is like you don't have to be Sherlock Holmes to figure this out that there has to be significant punishment that he doesn't want our country to do what the crown prince the president as he does so often when it's an ally. When it's a supporter a certain kind of ally normally male. Defense. No matter what. And we're seeing that defense now. Now, he's playing a little bit both ways in sixty minutes severe punishment. But now he's going with the guilty before innocence. I know he's trying to build up and continue that Saudi Arabia lions, especially when the sanctions are about to get stronger with Iran, but is this one where he's just going to get usurped by congress. You know, I think what was most telling was secretary of state Pompeii was visit over there or he was publicly, you know, there are ways to conduct those kind of visits first of all it's questionable. Whether you would want to send an emissary to the country that is under this kind of accusation. There's that, but he sent the secretary of state. They could have had a private meeting. Could've addressed it afterward. Instead, they have a public, you know, grip and grin both of them smiling. Both of them, you know, talking about their strong alliance seemed to me thoroughly inappropriate to the situation. And then this over concern about the arms deal, it it really looks like the United States is kind of carrying water for this country that is under this horrific allegation. And I find it just kind of loathsome. Really John is this another area where administration after administration continues to look the other way at Saudi Arabia because we have so few allies in the Middle East outside of Israel. I mean, even going back to nine eleven what took place, and whether we want to go back to H W Bush Bill Clinton w Obama that this has been going on. And now, here's this resonant of our country who is a reporter for the Washington Post walks into a building and by all accounts now. Oh, is murdered tortured butchered. And we're accepting some of these nonsensical explanation so far. Yes. For many many years, we have put our interests above our values. And I think that you know, from a bipartisan basis that's something that long ago should've stopped that being said, the crown prince is a special case in himself in the respect that since he has become the de facto day to day ruler after being tab by his father, king Salman, he has led according to our own State Department unlawful killings, torture and arbitrary arrests in detention. He has led a reckless indiscriminate bombing campaign in Yemen. That is amplified a humanitarian catastrophe that may become one of the world's worst problems quite quickly. Here he has detained if not kidnapped the Lebanese Prime Minister and after getting away with all that he probably thought very little about the potential consequences of what clearly seemed to have happened to the journalist in. So I think it's up to. Congress and very encouragingly on a bipartisan basis, they seem to really be pressing the president to not accept these explanations at face value and to potentially sanction them. And then Finally, I think a real compelling component of this entire case is the role that Turkey is playing Turkey was on the outs with the west with the United States in particular in. They're the ones who are holding the Saudis feet to the fire, and they may keep this from being whitewash because they keep selectively releasing information were it'll be politically impossible for President Trump. No matter how much he wants to go forward with an armament deal as well as sanctions on Iran needs Saudi Arabian cooperation, he may not be able to do all of that. Based on what Turkey is doing. So that's an underpaid component of this story that I think a lot of people should watch is it there's another distinction here too. And that is this is a president who has not hesitated to turn his full fury on other US allies, Canada, Mexico European countries regularly and yet, right? Now toward Honduras when individuals were facing, torture, no food looking to come to this country legally as is already warning those countries because that's the type of country. The president has decided we don't need, right. We're not a beacon anymore, and he is. So let's get to another point here on the president the president wins a legal victory against Michael outing, and stormy Daniels regarding defamation, and is usually doesn't rise above. He goes to the nine year old card and calling stormy Daniels. Horseface gracious she returns with the eight year old response calling him tiny. Yeah. Exactly is this just another day. Unfortunately, it is shouldn't be you would hope that the president would rise above, you know, just for once and not resort to the lowest common denominator. Unfortunately, it for him in particular this fits a pattern along pattern of denigrating women. There looks every opportunity based on on based on their looks their age. He never seems to opportunity to be dismissive of them..

"As on yesterday the star tribune of minneapolis a published an email that they had received from garrison keillor and they had asked him what was this this issue this event that occurred allegedly that led to the complete destruction of his career and this is what he said i put my hand on a woman's back i meant to pat her back after she told me about her unhappiness and her shirt was open and my hand went up at about six inches she recoiled i apologize i sent an email of apology later and she replied that she had forgiven me and not to think about it garrison keillor then wrote we continue to be friends right up until her lawyer called and he insisted now this is kind of weird he insisted his discomfort with physical affection was common knowledge he wrote if i had a dollar for every woman who asked to take a selfie with me and who slipped an arm around me and let it drift down below the belt line i'd have at least one hundred dollars low on okay so that happened every time with a selfie i mean maybe he wears is belts very high i don't know but the the point about all of this he's also a very tall guy garrison keillor so who knows maybe that's true but the idea if this is the extent of what happened was in one incident where he had his hand on a woman's bear back and he says he accidentally and he says she recoil than he seat that's different from the al franken stuff the al franken stuff there's no evidence that the women ever recoiled or confronted him about it and an end the al franken's several so i don't think is going to lead to his removal from the senate but who knows let's go to your clause and 2 parker in minneapolis parker you're on the michael medved show it's disagreement who would corker um i i don't really disagree with you on anything it's just the deceptive way that we were talking about this tax why i'm calling the business tax cut um it's really just the corporate tax with plenty of of business owners llcs uh different types of companies that are getting a tax cut uh it's just the way we call.
