7:25 am
women make up the majority of the people in the count rope and votes, it only makes sense to have that view represented on the supreme court. >> 80 percent of women over 40 are mothers. >> we want to start interperting laws with diversity. i am adhere to the helped century old that we should interpert the laws the way they were intended. the lady holding the trays of justice, right. when she is blind fold that's what justice should be. >> let me just interrupt you. everybody's personal experience does end up forming their opinions like it or not. if you have a mom on the supreme court, it will influence their issues on child care and sex discrimination in the workplace. >> let me jump in alley.
7:26 am
>> you can respond. i am. betsy. >> alyson two things temperature may be that our experiences do inform how we interpet the law. that is not supposed to be the case. the best we can say to the best extent we are to leave personal experiences aside. most important point. we node more mothers on the supreme court, they are not talking about mothers like me. i have four school age kid and raising them 24-7 . i would vote with justice roberts 99 percent of the time. when people want moms on the court they want liberal moms that vote a certain way. if i were qualified to be on the court would interpert the constitution to the best of my ability and put my personal prejudices aside. if you can do that i don't care if you have 10 children or none. the point is innertererting
7:27 am
the law. >> joanne two things it would be foin to have mothers on the court that look like me or you. pol ters have discovered in the book of what women really want. women agree on 80 percent. if we didn't need personal experience we wouldn't havulars or courts or judges or supreme court . we know that men on the court influence the decision f. we as a society decided we want diversity on tv news . we need it on the supreme court. >> interestingly every man on the court is a dad, justice scaliia had nine children. of course that never comes up. thank you for coming on to debate it . we'll continue it on the blog.

9:02 am
for weeks now it's been reported that about 210,000 gallons of oil was spewing into the gulf, but that is a significant that some scientists say is simply wrong. in fact, one scientist has said that it's 12 times greater. not ten times, but 12 times greater than that means there would be more than 2 million gallons of oil a day that is now spilling into the gulf and bp says that figure is not realistic, but the bottom line here, alisyn, no one really knows for sure. and at this hour, efforts are continuing to try and at least contain the oil spill. they are using a technique called a riser insertion, the pipe that is leaking is called a riser and what they want to do is put a tube in that riser and then funnel the oil to the surface into a tanker. if that doesn't work, plan b is what is called the top hat approach. it is a containment dome called the top hat and that would be put over the leak, again, the oil would be channelled to the surface in
9:03 am
the tanker and there's a report this morning that authorities are giving more serious consideration to what is called the junk shot approach. and that is simply channelling garbage into the pipeline to essentially clog it up and to stop the leak. meanwhile, the federal government has now approved the use of chemicals underwater to try and disperse the oil. this is the first time that these type of chemicals will be used underwater and there is a great deal of concern down here that the cure could be worse than the problem. and lastly, alisyn, it is expected that later today, the interior secretary, ken salazar is going to be in the region. one of the things he'll do is tour a wild life sanctuary, at least 13 birds have now died because they were coated with oil and those are the animals that we know about and again, it is feared that many more animals will die as the spill continues. back to you. >> all right. also tragic, david lee miller, thank you. why are none of these ideas
9:04 am
comforting to us? in part because they took them so many weeks to concoct anything. >> for the most part they're untested which is frightening, you would think they'd have a second, third, plan. >> and the ridiculous dog and pony show on capitol hill. >> terrible. >> with the oil executive passing the buck to each other. the american people want somebody to stand up and take accountable. that's not going to happen. the ceo of bp said this about the spill shall the gulf of mexico is a very big ocean. the amount of oil and disperseant we're putting into it is tiny in relation to the total water volume. >> how do you say that on the same day the experts say could be 25, could be 70,000 barrels a day could be four exxon valdez every four days. how out of touch could you be to look at what's happening. >> they haven't gotten their mind around it and arms what to do and white house watchers

9:06 am
environmental catastrophe that we've seen seen in the united states and that went largely ignored. >> what the federal government role is, if they're not regulating things that americans can do, we can't go to check the oil rig for safety. why are they focusing on children's bmi rather than regulating things that we can't do in our back yard. >> the same people that were accepting the royalties from the oil companies so their priorities were certainly out of whack. and we talked about some of the solutions to stop this leak, the jump shot, the top hat, they sound all cute. now, that bp is calling for you to provide suggestions, yes, they are opening up the phone lines, e-mail them, deepwater horizon they are asking for your ideas. i got one on twitter here from alicea, she says how about a billion sham wow towels. soak it up. >> thank you. >> sham wow. >> boom. >> that might sound ridiculous, they've received over 4800 responses from the

american people, some of which include, human hair. >> right. >> animal hair. >> a huge hair net. >> like a cafeteria lunch lady. that's not her, that's not her. >> that might work though (laughter) >> and these are people cutting their hair for the oil spill and this does work because hair absorbs oil. towels, putting towels down. >> it's disturbing and i talked to rick reich mieft about this earlier and there are few private companies involved in this, seems to be bp coming up with the bizarre solution when is you've got private enterprise, companies all over the world probably begging to get down there and try things. >> they are, i just saw the evening newscast there are at least four companies that have, they say, proven techniques, not just sort of experimental hair things, techniques of oil infiltration, you want to use that oil and we're also wasting that oil and say they've reached out to bp and the government and haven't heard back. >> and some are going to the gulf to try to get their attention. >> send in your suggestions,

>> welcome back to "fox & friends." take a look at the map. 19 that joined florida's original lawsuit against president obama's health care law and a lobby for small business is following that lead. >> that's right, we're joined from the national federation of independent businesses, her group is joining those 20 states in that lawsuit. good morning to you, karen, tell me, at first you supported this health care legislation, why have your members decided to join the lawsuit? >> they were aggressive to make sure that the number one health care issue, cost, was addressed in the health care bill. but after all of the political deals were cut, it was clear that the health care law that congress passed and the president signed was more bad than good for small business. and therefore, we felt that it was incumbent as
9:17 am
representatives of small business in this country, and our members who were demanding action that we join the state ag's and others and governors yesterday in their lawsuit to challenge this unconstitutional law. >> okay. and it remains to be seen whether or not it's constitutional and whether the states can't trump the federal government. will the me throw up on the screen here, these are big corporations that are affecting health care, caterpillar, honeywell, john deere, 3m. at&t, voe layero, a number of other countries and i spoke to a small business owner who says he has fewer than 20 employees and the percentage of health care cost was going to go from 7% up to about 15%, his costs, is that what is killing you guys? >> costs have been killing small business owners for decades now, yes and we actually think this health care law is only going to exacerbate that problem. not only are you talking about all the tax increases that are embedded in the bill, but you're talking about the cost
9:18 am
of doing business through new paper work requirements and regulatory burdens, it's unsus standable and many small business owners have to be forced to shut their doors as a result. >> karen, just so folks don't think you're saying, no, no, no, we don't want any of this. you're for some type of health care reform. what measures do you support? >> absolutely. nfib has been aggressive trying to get health care reform for its members for two decades. things like letting small businesses purchase across state lines, giving their employees vouchers so that health insurance truly is portable, and they can take-- that it's not tied to the employer-based health care system. these are tort reform is also another example of having that is missing from this legislation, that we have been asking for for decades. >> what's been the response so far working with these attorneys general across the state, what's been the
9:19 am
response? well, our partnership with the attorney's general has been very wonderful. we were pleased to be able to join them in efforts. our members are very enthusiastic and appreciative of our participation in this lawsuit. they know that we are fighting for them to the end on the issue that is their number one concern. >> karen, that will be national federation of independent business, you have 350,000 members. thanks for being here this morning. >> thank you so much. >> thanks, karen. >> well, coming up here on the show, election season heating up with candidates going at each other's throats for a seat in congress. pennsylvania is going down to the wire, an impact on the entire coming up. >> plus, if it's called volunteering, why is a school forcing parents to do it. doesn't it mean that that's mandatory? hear from the school next.

9:24 am
school year. gustavo gonzalez is school board trustee in the district. good morning, mr. gonzalez. >> good morning, how are you? >> i'm well. i'm sure our viewers understand the intention of the rule that you're proposing, that is to get more parents involved in their kids' school. however, how can you make this mandatory? what if parents have to work during the school day? >> yes, that's a great, great question. well, let's start with the beginning here. this policy is really about a statement that we want to make in our district about the importance of parent participation. research is clear on this, 48% of students success has nothing to do with their teefs, the facilities or the curriculum, has to do with parents participating in their education. as a school board trustee our job is to advocate for the students, and make the bold statement to the world what's important for student success and using the word requirement is making that bold statement.
9:25 am
now, can we force them? absolutely not. do we want to? absolutely not. what we want to do is make sure that everybody understands the importance of this. >> yeah. >> in order for this to work-- >> let me interrupt you there. this is a little like forcing people to give to charity. i mean, when you make it mandatory to volunteer, it loses something and in fact, parents may even become resentful of the school. >> well, you know, let me share with you my experience, i've gone to several school sites and crowds of 30 to 50 parents at each one of the meetings talking about this policy and i get maybe one parent that's against this policy, all the rest are extremely excited. we have three schools today in our district that already require this parent involvement and all of the three schools have a waiting list so it's clear to me that the parents in our district are clamoring for something like this. there's been very little complaints, if any. so, you know, the question you asked earlier about what about parents that work? well, that's a great question, we have single moms, single
9:26 am
dads working two jobs with three kids and they're able to find the time to do this. why? because they know the importance of their kids' education and they want to make sure that they're a part of that. >> okay, so-- >> and we work with everybody, right, i mean, we're-- >> that's promising, i mean, i'm happy to hear not many parents are complaining. it's about 30 hours a year which breaks down to about three and a half hours per month. you've admitted you can't really enforce it so what happens if a parent doesn't show up? >> yeah, well, once again, this policy is about the students. so if the parent can't show up can a grandparent, can a brother, an older sister, can an aunt or an uncle? if not them, let's look at other parents within our community involved maybe they can chip in and provide that parent participation piece. if not them, let's go out to the community. at the end. day this is about our students and how do we make sure we provide that piece of education for them that's so, so crucial. >> mr. gustavo gonzalez, thanks for coming on and
9:27 am
sharing this interesting plan. we'll open it up to the viewers on the blog and see how they feel. >> thank you. >> coming up, this is unbelievable, a toddler thrown from a car and over a 18 foot wall and he survived. we'll have that miraculous story next. and plus, outrage sparked by seven and eight-year-olds dancing in racy outfits to single ladies. some say it's wildly inappropriate. we'll hear what you have to say about this coming up. and remember two years ago when david and clayton went head to head in the great canoe race? it's time for the epic rematch. we'll find out if dave can defend his title on the bass pro lake on the plaza. stay tuned. i like to do all these fun things with my friends

all right, if you're doing home improvements today aly has good ideas. >> i'm chilling here with my new deck and dave white is national deck safety month. tell us what we need to know, dave. >> what we want to do is kind of walk through a few things if you've got an existing deck and plan on building one, things you need to look for structurally to ensure you have a safe deck. the first thing we're going to talk about is the piece here called the ledger board. that's the piece that goes against your house. >> yeah. >> that's a critical piece 'cause that holds up the deck. >> i already have a deck, how do i know if my ledger board is intact. >> check and make sure it's not rot ton and inspect that and see how it's attached to the wall. you can see here, i think you can see the bolts that we have. if all you see is nails going into that. >> oh, yeah. >> you want to be wary and get somebody to take a look. should be bolted in with lag screws or lag bolts something like this that this will go into the framing of your house and this is what it would look look on the inside of your
9:42 am
house and this is a room joyce that goes through and this should come through there. >> that looks sturdy, good to know. i'll check. >> and tells you how many bolts and how far apart. >> what is next. >> joyces hold up the decking and make sure that you have a sturdy joist hanger and you can see that's securely fastened there and you can buy these if you don't have them you can add these. >> great. >> once you take a look where the joyce attaches to a beam or a post you've got a hanger there, what that does, keeps it from twisting and turning, so if it twists this way then you're going to have a problem and you can see we've got those securely fastened as well and then on the post that holds the beam, there's specific anchors for that as well, again, securely bolted in. >> i'll leave some of this to my husband who wants to get this. and less than a minute. tell me what else i can do. >> railing, very, very important, make sure that's safe and make sure it's secure if it's bolted or secure, it's
9:43 am
tight. a local code dictates how high the railing is and how wide the spacing between the balancesters. height usually between 36 and 42 inches check the code and balancesters, four inches or so-so the small children can't get their head through there and finally take a look and make sure there's no rot. we talked earlier making sure they're okay. >> if we hose it down all the time. does it get warped or ruin the wood. no problemments shouldn't be if it's pleasure treated wood, but check if, if you see the rot replace the decking and of course make sure af got a good sealer or stain on there to help protect it for years and years. >> great to have the reminder of national deck safety months. >> home safety. >> thank you very much, more "fox & friends" in two minutes.

>> welcome back to "fox & friends" this morning. well, americans are feeling more hopeful about the economy. that could be some good news. a new fox news poll shows 49% think the economy is getting better, but the picture is still pessimistic when it comes to jobs. nearly 50% say the job situation is getting worse. are we improving the economy where it counts on the job front? university of maryland business professor peter morriesy joins us this morning. >> nice to be with you. >> so, is this positive news or not, peter? >> it's not positive news. the economy is only growing at about 3% a year and that's not nearly enough to wipe out the unemployment that was created during the recession. too many imports, costly imported oil. and the president keeps raising taxes. >> so when and how are we going to create jobs in this country? >> well, we're going to have
9:48 am
different economic policies. and first of all, we're going to have to finally do something about china's undervalued currency and may mean us taking unilateral action. we're going to have to drill more for oil even though we have had' had the terrible tragedy. importing oil creates environmental hazards in fact more and the president tongue lashing big oil is absolutely useless and finally, he's got this deficit reduction commission that wants to introduce a value-added tax. i have a very expensive-- expensive education in economics and nothing in the textbooks ever told me that raises taxes helps. >> i think a lot of people would agree with you. one of the questions about the banks this morning, earlier on "fox & friends" we ran through a number of, i think four more banks today, small banks that failed. i think that brings the total to 72 if my math is correct. 72 small banks, and yet, this week we're reporting, i think, 62 straight days of money making and big profits from
9:49 am
bank of america, citibank, goldman sacks, because they've borrowed the governments money while the small businesses floundered. americans can't get moan for loans and back to work and small businesses can't get loans, is that one of the major problems here? >> absolutely. businesses need customers and capital, but they can't borrow because the tarp went into the big banks. the small banks over the last two or three years, 30 have failed and simply don't have the money to loan. the tarp went to general motors, citigroup, i think he figured most of them were republicans. >> peter, give me a sliver, a sliver of positivity on my saturday afternoon any silver lining. >> we're creating some jobs and the unemployment rate isn't going much higher. we just need to create more of them, but the economy is starting to take off.
9:50 am
and whether we get the recovery we need. >> thank you for joining us this saturday on "fox & friends." take care. remember two years ago when dave and myself went head to head in the great kayak race of '08? well, it's time for a rematch of epic proportions and dave is practicing. can dave hold on to his championship title or will i rein supreme? that's next with bass pro, i've been practicing on my nintendo wii. thanks to the new venture card from capital one, we get dole miles on every purchase.

9:55 am
about. >> oh, no! oh, clayton just claimed to have won even though he was in the drink first. have you ever seen a kayak race like this, kevin? >> i've never seen anything like it. >> oh! this is what we love right here. >> wow. >> he's cheating again! >> how, how did he cheat? >> first off he was supposed to go around, he went the wrong way and held on to my boat. >> folks, we need a ruling. >> dave what i saw was you-- >> oh. >> did i win? did i win? >> i win? >> yeah! >> i win? >> i think it's clear. >> are you admitting the charges of cheating, clayton. >> i will neither confirm nor deny that i cheated this time. i was confused on the rules! >> kevin van damme from bass pro shops. why were they tackling each other during the race. >> i can tell they're very
